"Time and Tide" by Greenslade

"Time and Tide", the last gasp of the (more or less) original Greenslade, doesn't enjoy the sterling reputation of their self-titled debut or its follow-up "Bedside Manners are Extra" (easily their finest hour). With the excellence of those albums to consider, this is fully justified, but that doesn't mean "Time and Tide" doesn't have merit. Yes, the Mellotrons have been deposed by the dreaded Crumar Stringman, yes, there are some concessions to (gasp) pop sensibilitis, and yes, Messrs. Greenslade and Lawson did some tracks without the participation of the other Dave. So what? The musicianship is still top-notch, the sense of adventure remains intact, and the compositions are engaging. And, if you ignore the fact that the painting was somebody else's blatant rip-off of Roger Dean's schtick and enjoy it on purely aesthetic terms, it's a lovely cover. Plus, when you consider the general state of prog rock in 1975, it's worth nothing that, with the possible exception of Dave Lawson's petulant critic-bashing on "Newsworth", nothing here is beneath their dignity.

Every time I've downloaded this album, however, it's always been missing about a minute of the opening track, "Animal Farm". Fortunately, I ran into a vinyl copy (now THAT'S the way to see that sleeve) this weekend, and ripped that track for my enjoyment and yours.

"Last Tango in Beulah - The Best of 1972-1974" - Rare Bird

If you're anything like me, and I know I am, you love Rare Bird's first two albums and consider the rest of their career to be a complete disappointment. They lost organist Graham Field and, with him, much of their originality and ambition. Out went classicism and dual keyboard interplay, in came funk and guitars, and while I have nothing against funk or guitars in the right hands, they just meant a drift towards generic AOR mediocrity for Kaffanetti, Gould and company. Meanwhile Graham - clearly the real brains (or at least the artistic conscience) behind the original Rare Bird - put out one album of rathered good (if mannered) prog rock with the almost eponymous Fields and vanished. Sigh.

But the real kick in the pants is that the three Rare Bird albums after "As Your Mind Flies By" each boast at least a song or two that are worth listening to - but not worth sitting through up to half an hour of tepid lite-funk for. So that's where this compilation comes in - the cream of the crap, if you will. About seventy minutes of latter day Rare Bird that can sit, if not proudly, at least compactly next to your treasured copies of their first two masterpieces.

Apologies if my choices were too generous or, conversely, if I missed your fave rave.

(you can excise this bit if you want, Lizardson)

An additional note - I've seen a few comments here recently that, if I'm not just reading too much into them, seem to suggest that my posts here are some kind of desecration to the spirit of Time Has Told Me, presumably because my music choices have not been of a folky or singer/songwriter nature.

Well, I figured it'd be alright because this already struck me as a rather eclectic blog, and I've been turned on to some of these very same band's other albums by it, as well as a wealth of other musical gems in ALL styles. This blog has, in all seriousness, routinely left me saying, "oh my God, how did I live without this album all those years?" It was my first music blog, it remains my favorite, and now that I'm giving back (I hate that expression, it sounds so "corporate community outreach"), it's where I'm doing most of my posting (not counting my own MySpace blog). I'd never want to do it any disservice.

Besides, clearly Lizardson wouldn't be approving my posts for feature in the blog if he didn't feel I was offering something valid - he does not, from what I can tell, post every contribution willy-nilly to the main blog. Sometimes he just approves the comment for reading on the "recommendations" page but does not post it to the main blog. Long story short, if it's up there on the big screen with the pretty picture, Lizardson must've been alright with it.

So, please, if you ain't pickin' up what I'm layin' down, move on to the next entry. Or ask for a refund!

Velvet Monkeys - "Rotting Corpse au Go-Go" + bonus material

http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/3858/vmcoverck7.jpg

The Velvet Monkeys were an early '80's Washington, DC band that I find hard to classify but easy to love. The ominous synthesizers suggest goth, the uncertain snarl of the vocals and the buzzsaw guitars lay claim to punk, one may even catch a whiff of the coming paisley underground, but the indelible melodies and simple but effective song structures show their allegiance to lasting pop traditions. Sometimes they drop the trappings entirely and give you a straight dose of infectiously fractured British invasion pop, like on opener "All the Same". Leader Don Fleming later went on to record for Columbia with Gumball.

"Rotting Corpse au Go-Go" was a compilation put out by Shimmy-Disc sometime in the late '80's, with the cassette version boasting some 40 additional minutes of unreleased material. The whole shebang is enclosed here; the basic album was ripped from the vinyl and the bonus tracks from the tape. This was actually one of my first ever ripping projects some five years ago!

Opal - "Happy Nightmare Baby" (1987) + 2

http://bp0.blogger.com/_VRIHR_HTy7k/R37h0GaMoHI/AAAAAAAAAtU/Qqf36-EqXik/s200/opal%2Bhappy.jpg

"Happy Nightmare Baby" is, for my money, the finest hour of the Paisley Underground. David Roback (formerly of the Rain Parade) and Kendra Smith (formerly of the Dream Syndicate) lead you on a journey through the darker side of psychedelia. Chunky T. Rex guitars chop along at languid, drugged tempos while ominous synths (often reminding one of John Paul Jones' psuedo-Eastern arrangements on Led Zep songs like "Friends" and "Kashmir") swoop and dive. Smith's two-feet-in-the-grave deadpan vocals make her sound like the one true heir to Nico. In fact, if pressed to be concise, I'd say that the overall sound of this disc is a perfect, seamless melding of Syd Barrett and the Velvet Underground.

Funnily enough, everything done by this crew before and after "Happy Nightmare Baby", while still a bit trippy, was a great deal mellower, as if this kind of intensity simply couldn't be maintained. "Early Recordings" could be compared to the Cowboy Junkies' "The Trinity Sessions" for its drugged rural ambience, like eating magic mushrooms in a ghost town. After the departure of Kendra Smith, Dave Roback carried on with Hope Sandoval and changed the band's name to Mazzy Star, who, while less critically acclaimed, did manage to bring a taste of the same unsettled bliss to a wider audience.

Here we go again: I'm posting my version (some tracks downloaded many a moon ago, some ripped from my own vinyl) because the one on Rapidshare is purportedly missing a track. I've also thrown on a couple of bonus tracks, taken from contemporary various artist compilations, on which they cover Syd Barrett and the Doors.

Sex Clark Five - Strum & Drum! (1987)

http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/7002/sexclarkfivestrumdrum19bl3.jpg

Boy, 1987 may have been a poor year for mainstream rock music (IMHO), but there sure were some weird gems bubbling underneath the surface, thus allowing me to complete my '80's Amerindie trifecta! Sex Clark Five is one of those goofy indie band names that almost makes sense, 'cos Dave Clark Five songs played with Sex Pistols attitude (but not Sex Pistols volume - acoustic guitar is a big driving force here) wouldn't be a bad place to start describing them. But most of the songs are actually SHORTER than your average DC5 (or SP4!) tune (how did ya think they packed twenty tracks into 35 minutes), they play instrumentals that combine surf rock with Eastern exotica, and they do a decent job of using Casiotones to emulate ol' garage band combo organs (and other coolly psychedelic sounds) here and there. The latter two tendencies occasionally bring to mind early Camper Van Beethoven, but the pop songs are a whole different ball o' wax - British Invasion ear candy with some trippy overtones played in the wrong place (Huntsville, AL, assuming they lived in the same town as their vanity label) at the wrong time (the dreaded 1980's). God bless 'em!

Flash - Flash (1971)

http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/7607/flashei3.jpg

ripped from vinyl by BaM, by request

After my comments disparaging Flash's other albums while reviewing "In the Can", I was surprised by the amount of enjoyment I got from their self-titled debut while ripping it from vinyl (so thank you, "anonymous", for requesting it)! Once I got past the fact that there are tracks entitled "Children of the Universe" and "Dreams of Heaven" (for all the cheesiness of the titles, they're not bad musically), I was able to dig the prog-pop of their "hit" (and it really deserved a quote-free status) "Small Beginnings", the gentle acoustic trippiness of "Morning Haze" and the "what if Cressida had recorded a third album" vibe of "The Time It Takes". So, a pleasant listen - but, as my heart still belongs to "In the Can", I'll fill this out with some reviews I found on Flash's own website...

ALBUMS REVIEWS

by Tommy Schönenberg

Excellent progressive rock band formed by former Yes-members Peter Banks and Tony Kaye. It would then may not come as a surprise that the music of Flash sounds quite much like Yes. This was their debut-album and their classic release. Cheerful and energetic progressive rock in the vein of "Yours Is No Disgrace". Any lover of Yes will eat up tracks like "Small Beginnings", "Children of the Universe" and not at least the fantastic "Dreams of Heaven". The latter is just as good as any of Yes' best moments, and that's not a joke! There's also some shorter and relaxed tracks here, but it's of course in the long tracks the group really shines. The performance is great, and besides the excellent playing of both Kaye and Banks you'll also notice the powerful bass- playing of Ray Bennett. Wonderful stuff for all fans of progressive rock.

http://www.ajudavirtual.com.br/hard/fff.htm

by Bob Eichler

Flash was one of the first branches off the Yes family tree, with Peter Banks and Tony Kaye banding together after getting the axe from Squire and Anderson (who apparently wasn't all peace, love and brotherhood in his younger days). Unsurprisingly, Flash's first album sounds a lot like Yes from around the same time. In fact, with its extended composition, thick bass, flashy guitar and swirling organ work, "Small Beginnings" sounds like it could be a lost track from The Yes Album. "Morning Haze" has a more laid-back acoustic guitar and percussion sound and focuses heavily on the vocals. "Children of the Universe" returns to the early Yes sound, but unfortunately has lyrics that are so goofy ("Ya hoo cha hoo cha!") that they make Jon Anderson sound downright rational. After a chaotic opening section, "Dreams of Heaven" also settles down into a fairly Yessy song. "The Time it Takes" is a quiet, somewhat ambient song that washes away the end of the album on simulated ocean waves. The only real downside to this album is Colin Carter's nasal and nondescript vocals - they just grate on me for some reason. Fortunately, there are a lot of lengthy instrumental sections. After this disc, the band would lose Kaye, and their sound would drift a little further from the Yes sound on their second and particularly their third album. Those who think Banks and Kaye were "throwaway" members of Yes should give this disc a listen. It might have been interesting to see where the band would have gone had the original line-up remained intact.

http://www.progreviews.com/reviews/flash-flash.htm

by Joe McGlinchey

Flash approximates what a more overtly proggy release from the very first line-up of Yes might have sounded like. Released in 1972 with ex-Yes members Peter Banks on guitar and Tony Kaye on keyboards, this is a decent, under-recognized prog album. Every extended piece, "Small Beginnings" and "Children of the Universe" have some great playing (especially by Banks, who definitely makes his presence felt), energetic hooks, and enthusiastic harmonies. "Dreams of Heaven" is a bit more unbalanced, relying primarily on its harmonic-laden, anthemic chorus. The other two tracks are more laid back efforts. "Morning Haze," the one track with (frail) lead vocals from bassist Ray Bennett, is a short, interlude number that sounds at points like Crosby, Stills & Nash or the Grateful Dead around American Beauty. It has an informal jam-at-a-picnic feel, with Banks inserting playful acoustic guitar passages all along the way. The closer, "The Time It Takes" is soft and fades the album out with a whisper. One drawback of the album is the poor sound (and it definitely sounds of the period), but the material and performances are quite good.

http://www.progreviews.com/reviews/flash-flash.htm

by Clayton Walnum

If you like Yes's early sound, then you'll surely go bonkers over Flash, because there is no other band on the planet that better had that Yes sound down. That Flash should sound so much like early Yes is no surprise when you realize that two members of the band -- Peter Banks and Tony Kaye -- were members of the original Yes lineup.

The story goes like this: Sometime after the recording of Yes's second album, A Time And A Word, Peter Banks left Yes and was immediately replaced by the now legendary Steve Howe. (This fast switcheroo is why, although Peter Banks played on the A Time And A Word album, Steve Howe's picture is on the cover. Another prog mystery solved!) After recording The Yes Album, keyboardist Tony Kaye was unhappy with the band's direction (it's been said that the other members of Yes wanted Kaye to experiment with more electronics, while Kaye was perfectly happy with his Hammond organ, thank you very much) and so he left the band, too. Peter Banks and Tony Kaye teamed up, and Flash was born. The Banks/Kaye partnership was to last only one album, though, after which Kaye quit Flash to form the band Badger. Banks and Flash went on to record two other studio albums, but each was a step further in the wrong direction, although each had its moments.

The first Flash album, however, is a great piece of 70s style prog rock, featuring long compositions, lots of guitar and keyboard flash (hmmmm), and complex Yes-like arrangements. The first track, "Small Beginnings," which clocks in at almost 10 minutes, is very reminiscent of the Yes composition "Yours Is No Disgrace," starting with a speedy, trademark guitar riff and featuring some hot organ playing by Kaye. The high-octane verses give way to the requisite prog changes, including a mellow centerpiece, before roaring back into gear for a final verse. If it wasn't for the vocalist -- who sounds nothing like Jon Anderson -- you would swear this cut was performed by Yes itself. Great stuff!

The album includes a couple of less Yes-like tracks, such as the acoustic "Morning Haze" (nice background harmonies on this one) and "The Time It Takes" (a relaxing closer for the album). Still, tracks like the nine-minute "Children of the Universe" and the 13-minute "Dreams of Heaven" feature plenty of those cool unison guitar and keyboard riffs, as well as happy, infectious, bouncy beats and arrangements that tread back deep into Yes territory. On these other long tracks, you'll hear jazzy, cooking guitar interludes that sound very much like Banks' style on the first Yes album. Kaye's piano comping in these sections is outstanding. Kaye was (and is) such a talented player, one has to wonder why he has always been content to stay in the background.

Bottom line: No fan of Yes can be without at least the first Flash album. For all intents and purposes, this is Yes circa 1969-70. You may ask yourself, though, how such a great album ended up with such a terrible cover.

Biff Rose - The Thorn in Mrs. Rose's Side (1968)

This unlikely album was a notable influence on David Bowie's "Hunky Dory" period - not only did he cover "Fill Your Heart" (officially) and "Buzz the Fuzz" (on bootleg), but several of the originals (particularly in the arrangements) owe a clear debt as well. Biff Rose's sound is rather middle of the road (but agreeably and catchily so), his lyrics are quirky, and his piano playing is quite lively - no wonder Bowie had to hire Rick Wakeman! Naive, sweet and just plain weird, Biff Rose is about as unclassifiable a singer/songwriter as you'll run across.

The Three Hendri

These days, a saturated market means Elvis impersonators need a gimmick, hence the midget Elvis, the Mexican Elvis,

the nudist Elvis - for all I know, there's an Amish Elvis out there. A similar thing happened in the early '70's,

when Jimi Hendrix was the dead man everybody wanted to be. Thus, I give you the Female Hendrix, the Hoser Hendrix

and the Hendrix with the Pimp Name - collectively, I call them the Three Hendri.

The Female Hendrix
Char Vinnedge of Billy Cox's Nitro Function

http://bp0.blogger.com/__JYEjdyJ7pI/R47pa7qtZfI/AAAAAAAAD-E/pxR7zgz2oAk/s1600/Billy%2BCox%C3%82%C2%B4s%2BNitro%2BFun

ction%2B-%2BFront.jpg

Billy Cox's Nitro Function suffered from Spencer Davis Group syndrome, where the ostensible titular head of the band

actually plays more of a support role. In this particular case, it probably seemed necessary to sign and/or market

the band, as Mr. Cox was, of course, a long time friend of Jimi Hendrix who participated in the Band of Gypsys and

other post-Experience Hendrix projects. The real musical focal point of the group, however, was guitarist/vocalist

Char Vinnedge, formerly of the reportedly excellent all-girl Chicago band the Luv'd Ones. Her distaff tones do much

to give this album a unique flavor, referencing Jimi without complete apeing him.

Frank Marino of Mahogany Rush

http://bp3.blogger.com/_KcJj6wN1MA4/Rwy23a9QUSI/AAAAAAAABO4/JUu-lQZEGO4/s1600/mrush1.jpg

One day when I'm old and grey and feeble, I'm gonna open one of those cheap roadside attraction museums, and mine is

going to be dedicated to the urban legends and tall tales of rock 'n' roll. Somewhere amongst exhibits like The Ham

Sandwich That Killed Mama Cass, Morrison's "Little Jim" Live in Miami and The Rod Stewart Stomach Pump will be a

mural depicting Frank Marino in a drug-induced coma being taught guitar by the ghost of Jimi Hendrix. To put it

another way, this well-worn version of Marino's story is complete balderdash, but it's too imbedded into the rock

'n' roll consciousness to ever really go away.

But even the hard facts are pretty amazing: Canadian drug enthusiast Frank Marino taught himself how to play guitar

while in the hospital (but not in a coma) recovering from a bad trip and went on to record the first Mahogany Rush

album at the tender age of 16! Marino managed to make a long career out of his Hendrix obsessions, but I give the

nod to the debut simply because later offerings were produced far too slickly.

Subliminalsounds:

"Of the various myths and legends that have sprung up since Jimi Hendrix's death in 1970, one of the most enigmatic and enduring concerns his relationship with Velvert Turner, the New York born axeman who claimed both to be friend and protege of the late guitarist. More evidence comes courtesy of ex-Television guitarist Richard Lloyd, who not only listened to a lengthy telephone conversation between the pair when the Hendrix was playing in New York, but generally hung out with Turner at the time he was receiving lessons from Hendrix. Commenting on this, Lloyd says "They used to use a large mirror for the lessons because Jimi was left handed and Velvert was not. Velvert used to come to my house after the lessons and show me what Jimi had taught him" Supported by Prescott Niles (later to form The Knack) and Tim McGovern, both of whom cropped up on Randy California's Kapt Kopter album, Turner produced two different musical versions of his album with the same sleeve and catalogue number, distinguishing them only by their matrix numbers. This, then, is the "heavier" version (matrix no. 16741) with crazed, heavy solo guitar overdubs rather than the "soul" version (matrix no. 16951) with the second lead guitar overdubs removed. The Velert Turner album may be just another small piece in the Hendrix jigsaw, but it also happens to be a pretty good guitar album too."

POLL: Amboy Dukes - Marriage on the Rocks - Rock Bottom (1969)

After searching in vain for a copy via Bittorrent, Rapidshare, Megaupload (you get the idea), I scored a vinyl copy of The Amboy Dukes' "Marriage on the Rocks - Rock Bottom" today. It has no skips or locked grooves; however, it's quite crackly and generally noisy.

My question to all of you out there in Time Has Told Me land: Should I take the time and effort to rip it?

1. Hell yeah, bro! NUUUUUGE!!!
2. Well, I'd really like to hear it, but I'd rather wait until somebody shows up with CD or cleaner vinyl rip.
3. NO! DON'T BRING YOUR EVIL HERE!
4. I will upload my own copy.

My quick take: Ted Nugent flirts with proggy moves and Zappa-like razor edits, but never stops sounding sleazy. More piano and organ than ya might expect, but never to the detriment of that signature guitar work.

So whadya think, folks?

Pete Dello - Into Your Ears (1971) + 10

http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/4124/intoyourearshx9.jpg

"a supreme piece of melodic sensitivity, not just a worthy successor of the way initiated with Honeybus and Dello's unique conception of pop, but the perfect culmination of a very personal way of understanding songs as conveyors of the most intimate emotions, full of charm, caprice and beauty" - an uncredited quote found on the Internet, perfectly describing this perfect album

I can't give this album measured praise and won't attempt to. This is, simply put, an exquisite collection of songs - as melodic as McCartney, uncluttered in its arrangements, and featuring lyrics that alternate between direct simplicity and an almost Syd Barrett-like ability to convey a deep emotional resonance that bypasses conscious thought entirely. Like much great art, it's bittersweet and melancholy yet somehow leaves you feeling full of hope and joy in the end.

Of particular interest to me is the song "Uptight Basil" which, if one reads between the lines, seems to explain why Pete quit Honeybus (and, for that matter, why there'd never be a sequel to "Into Your Ears"). Dello, for all his "crazy" lyrics and whimsicality, was far too sane to play ball in an industry that puts artists on a treadmill and squeezes them dry of their creativity like so many oranges. He'd clearly rather be winding that clock, making that bed or sweeping that floor than "lighting up our misty winter's night" as a falling star, burning up in the stratosphere. And who could blame him?

I simply have nothing negative to say about this record, except that even with ten bonus tracks, I still find myself wanting more when it's all over.

This album has been available at Time Has Told Me for just over two years, and as far as I know, the current link is still available, but I ran across a copy of the latest remaster which features not two but TEN bonus tracks and figured my fellow Dellomaniacs would like to make an upgrade. Now I just need to save up some money to buy the Spanish double LP virgin vinyl reissue (insert Homer Simpson drool noise here)...

"Rallion"

Just spent one of the best 2 hours of my life watching this band ... absolutely stunning :-)

Check out http://www.rallion.co.uk/ there's some sample tracks on the album page. They played most of this album at the show this evening. Needless to say I bought the CD and would recommend you did too. Think of Steeleye Span ... Fairport Convention ... Lindisfarne ... all with a scottish accent ;-)

Arc - Arc...At This (1971) UPGRADE

http://bp0.blogger.com/_Mig0Nzx-fN4/SF0QqCKpnGI/AAAAAAAABdI/eHi3z5W4zxI/s400/arc.jpg

I've listened to my old copy of this album so many times that I'd almost gotten used to "Hello Hello Monday" abruptly cutting off at 5:52. As I'd seen complaints about the same before on the internet, I can only assume that pretty much all the versions floating around come from the same incomplete source. But, lo and behold, I recently ran across a copy of the track which was complete, albeit encoded at a lower bitrate, so I took the missing bits from that and grafted them onto the end of my existing version. Consequently, there will be a slight reduction in sound quality for the last minute or so of "Hello Hello Monday", but I'm proud to say that the edit itself is sonically invisible. So until somebody pops up with a pristine, complete vinyl rip or some enterprising label reissues this on CD (I'm assuming nobody has), this is probably as good as it gets. Enjoy!

The Village Green Preservation Society's first recordings

http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/8498/bamkateel1.jpg

In the middle of a rehearsal this evening, Kate and I decided to fire up the four track and make a couple of impromptu recordings. Kate played bass and sang, I played amplified acoustic guitar and sang and overdubbed some drums, and Tom contributed some additional percussion with his collar (that's Tom the dog, not that guy who shows up on everybody's friends list). The results can be found on the Village Green Preservation Society page. Enjoy!

I forgot to post some info about Patrick Sky:


Patrick Sky was a part of Greenwich City in the sixties. He was quite a skillful guitarist and "folksinger". His first appearence on record came 1965 on a Elektra-record: Singer Songwriter Project, together with Dick Fariña, David Blue and Bruce Murdoch. The same year his self titled album was made, wich contains his most famous song: Many a Mile.

Photographs is his fourth album, and his best in my opinion. Made in 1969.

Skymonters With Hamid Hamilton Camp(1973)

An Elektra artist both as part of a duo with Bob Gibson and as a solo artist in the first half of the 1960s, Camp got back onto the label as a singer on this 1973 album. It's genial but unimportant singer/songwriter pop, produced with more taste and restraint than much such material of the time, but lacking in outstanding songs. Camp sometimes sounds a little like a folkier Sal Valentino ("Long River" and "Shadows on the Wall" don't sound too dissimilar to the late-'60s Beau Brummels), though he lacks the depth and rock inclinations of the Beau Brummels' vocalist. A strong country-rock feel asserts itself at times, somewhat in the mold of the early Eagles, in particular, in the harmony vocals on "Gypsy," but less polished. "Kings," on the other hand, has some brass and orchestration that sounds like a faint leftover from the folk-pop moods on his 1967 album for Warner Bros., Here's to You. "Disaster" gets almost into a pure country barroom mood that nearly falls into parody, though that's redeemed by the strong storytelling feel and pleasing chorus of the best cut, "Steal Away." ~ Richie Unterberger


I think all of the songs is very enjoyable and Shadows on the Wall is with no doubt an outsatnding song.


Thi vinyl-rip is once again in WMA(sorry) and there is some clicks and pops and some distortion.

Derroll Adams - Portland Town (1967)


Don't think this is available on cd.

Derroll is a banjoman known for his work with Ramlin' Jack Elliott.
He had a wonderful voice, deep like an ocean, warm like a summerbreeze and soft like silk. Upon it, listening on him is like listening to your favorite unkle.
This is his first solo album.



This is a share I do for Vlansdance(I miss your blog, hope you take it up soon), I've seen he's bin looking for it.

Arlo Guthrie: Live x 2, 1968 & 2006

Arlo Guthrie - Arlo (1968)

http://img34.picoodle.com/img/img34/3/9/6/f_arlo68bm_256580a.jpg

Reprise released Guthrie's second LP, Arlo, in October 1968. It was a live album recorded at the Bitter End nightclub in Greenwich
Village, and it featured more of Guthrie's zany humor, along with original songs. Overshadowed by Alice's Restaurant, it peaked at
number 100 in Billboard, although it got to number 40 in rival Cash Box magazine.
Arlo is backed by Bob Arkin on bass, Stan Free on piano and harpsichord, and Ed Shaughnessy on tabla and drums.


Track Listings
1. Motorcycle Song
2. Wouldn't You Believe It
3. Try Me One More Time
4. John Looked Down
5. Meditation (Wave upon Wave)
6. Standing at the Threshold
7. Pause of Mr. Claus

http://rapidshare.com/files/143053662/AGSecond68.zip

MP3 @ 160 kbps, 32:36,

Arlo Guthrie was still prone to long story-songs and occasional humorous introductory monologues on his second outing. Three of the
seven tracks last for longer than five minutes, though none remotely approach "Alice's Restaurant" in epic length. Recorded live at the Bitter End, it shows Guthrie starting to adapt more wholeheartedly to folk-rock instrumentation, with a full if subdued band including drums and keyboards. The songs are nothing major, and the jokes aren't as funny as they were in the late 1960s, but it's an agreeable, pleasant, intelligent album. "The Motorcycle Song" should please those looking for more comic narratives, as should "The Pause of Mr. Claus," most of which is actually a spoken monologue that does finally lead up to fairly funny punchlines. In a more purely musical vein, he touched (mildly) upon ragga-rock on "Meditation (Wave Upon Wave)," with tabla by Ed Shaughnessy. It may not have been a great record, but Arlo Guthrie was managing to establish himself as a folk-rock talent with an identity quite distinct from
his famous father, not an easy feat. : ~ Richie Unterberger

The Highwaymen - Michael, Row The Boat Ashore (Best of..) [1992]

http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/6439/highwaymenlzy3.jpg

Do not confuse the folk singers of the sixties featured on this set with the country superstars Cash, Jennings, Nelson and Kristofferson who also recorded and toured using the Highwaymen name.
These original Highwaymen are best remembered for Michael Row the Boat Ashore (sometimes just titled Michael), a number one hit in Britain, America and other countries around the world, which begins this set. Cotton Fields, originally written by Leadbelly, was a top twenty hit for the Highwaymen, though others have also charted with this song, including the Beach Boys. Another famous song is The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, a massive seventies hit for Roberta Flack. It was written by folk singer Ewan MacColl about Peggy Seeger who later became his wife. The version here is very folky, true to the original.
There are several other well known songs here, including Big Rock Candy mountain and The Gypsy Rover. Even the obscure songs here are worth hearing. The general feel of the album is easy-going but upbeat - the sort of album that you can play as background music, but has plenty to offer if you give it dedicated attention. In particular, there is their very amusing song, titled Number One, about themselves. It shows that having a number one record will get you a lot of attention but doesn't guarantee further success.
Many of the tracks here are more interesting than Michael - if you like sixties folk music, the Highwaymen are well worth a listen.
This composite CD is taken from various of their LPs from the 60s, and represents a worthwhile trip back to old territory for many baby-boomers.

Hi- I have a recording I would like to share with you and your readers. It is an off-the-radio recording of "Bryter Layter: The Music of Nick Drake" a concert that took place at St. Ann's Church in Brooklyn, NY on November 8, 1997. The musical director was Peter Holsapple and the performers included Syd Straw, Peter Blegvad, Susan Cowsill, Katell Keinig, Mimi Goese, Sloan Wainwright, Duncan Sheik, Rebecca Moore, Terre Roche, Richard Davies, Dana & Karen Kletter and Richard Barone. This is an excellent-sounding recording of a unique event. I was present at this show and it lives in my memory as one of the greatest concerts I've ever seen. As I say, I would love to share this but I have no idea how to send it to you. If you could help me with the technicalities I'm sure you would enjoy this recording. BTW, THTM is, in my estimation, just about the best music blog out there. Thanks from Brooklyn for all your work and devotion.

The Journeymen - New Directions in Folk Music (1963)

http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/3808/journeymen2hk3.jpg

This is the third and final LP by the three-piece acoustic folk Journeymen -- featuring the immense talents of Dick Weissman (banjo/vocals), Scott McKenzie (guitar/vocals), and John Phillips (guitar/vocals). The title New Directions in Folk Music (1963) could not have been more accurate. In a very short span of time during the early '60s, the more traditional forms of folk began to synthesize with blues and even pop to create uncharted musical landscapes. The trio embraced these various influences throughout this effort. Of the dozen cuts on this platter there are notably few true original compositions. However, as they had done on their prior two long-players, there are fresh and vital interpretations of standards including "Stackolee," which is also know as "Stagger Lee" as well as Jesse "Lone Cat" Fuller's "San Francisco Bay Blues" and the striking reading of Ian Tyson's "Four Strong Winds." Not to be missed is the sly "One Quick Martini" or, quite possibly the highlight of the whole affair, the cover of Muddy Waters' "Someday Baby." Although the Journeymen were forging new inroads for the genre, behind the scenes the combo was falling apart. By the end of 1964 Phillips had formed the New Journeymen with his wife Michelle and Marshall Brickman (banjo). This band would be the launch pad for the Mamas & the Papas as Denny Doherty (vocals/guitar) would eventually replace Brickman several months later. In 2003 Collectors' Choice Music issued New Directions in Folk Music on to CD with seven additional bonus tracks. Among them are previously unearthed takes of the aforementioned "San Francisco Bay Blues," another Tyson number called "Makes a Long Time Man Feel Bad," "Greenland Whale Fisheries," "I May Be Right," and the stunning reworking of "Mary Wore Three Links of Chain."

Below is an album i've not come across anywhere on the web and thought it well worth sharing.
The first (self titled) album of the band Summerhaze was released on Larrikin records in 1987 in Australia. Largely the work of Cathie O'sullivan, its front woman, its quite an unusual album. Her voice is clear,high and striking and is accompanied by her on harp on at least some traditional songs folk songs (eg cruel sister) with the other band members on percussion, strings and a sax. The sound falls somewhere between folk,folk-rock classical and elements of jazz. Many of the songs are written by Cathie. There is even a hint of psych-folk in some songs, especially on a few tracks of the second album. It was distinct then, and even today hard to pidgeon-hole. Part of a great fusion sound coming out of Australia at the time. I first heard on a wonderful radio program - Sunday Folk on ABC fm. Summerhaze did for folk what australian bands such as Sirocco did with world music- Play with a myriad traditions to breathe something new and distinctive of our landscape and intermingling of roots into music.

None of the Larrikin collection has ever been rereleased to my knowledge, and while this album was on both Vinyl and Cd, it has longs since been out of print. If folks like it, i'll put up their second album up.

Hi Lizardson,

Another contribution to the blog:

Karen Tweed & Ian Carr - Shh

Both of these great musicians are well known from their work with other line-ups (the Poozies, Kathryn Tickell band, Old Rope String Band, Kate Rusby, Swåp, etc) but in the mid nineties they made two albums as a duo. A third would be great but it seems they're too busy involved in other projects now.

"The pairing of Karen Tweed and Ian Carr (that's Ian Carr the folky, not the jazzbo) has the kind of telepathy so often promised but rarely achieved. It's not a case of Tweed's accordion leading with Carr supplying rhythm on guitar. They work together, as they did in Kathryn Tickell's band, filling and supporting each other, armed with style and a formidable technique -- simply listen to Carr's picking on "Jigs" to understand the possibilities of guitar as a rhythm instrument. While Tweed and Carr are more than capable in every musical sphere, they seem particularly at home on the "Polskas," a foreshadowing of the work they'd do in Swåp. But their approach alone is a joy, whether tackling traditional or contemporary material from Ireland, Scotland, England, or Scandinavia; it's the interaction, lightning fast and beyond any rehearsal, that makes this record truly stand out, with the wonderfully titled "Isleofewe" positively glowing. The possibilities of a duo are rarely fully explored, especially an instrumental one. Carr and Tweed burrow into the nooks and crannies, and their playing is so eloquent that you never miss the words. ~ Chris Nickson, All Music Guide "

I had been looking for Ray Fisher albums for quite a while, and I was delighted when I saw three of them on this website. Now I'm in search of more albums featuring Ray Fisher. I know there are a few, for example the album "Far Over the Forth" / "Bonny Lass Come O'er the Burn" together with her brother Archie Fisher.

If anyone here has any albums featuring Ray Fisher (apart from the ones already on the site), please let me know.

Great site people, keep it going! :)

Summerhaze Second album (Abridged)

Summerhaze's second Album -"Sweetheart" was released in '88. It differs from the first, with considerably more 80's jazz influence, that is probably of much less interest to readers of this blog.

However the other half is intriguing classical/ folk/ psych music that is quite beautiful. I'm having upload issues with my ISP so have made an abridged version of this second album that includes only the folk components. I really love this section, whilst the other parts leaves me cold. This abridged version people will give people an excellent taste of the unique Summerhaze sound. I will post the full album with its artwork in a few weeks, so people can decide which version they prefer for themselves.

According to MH's BBC homepage, you can get a free audio download of the programme(UK only),so if someone in UK could D/L the podcast and post it,I think it would be a better quality recording than what I've been able to get,recording internet audio stream through my soundcard.

Wolverlei - "Wolverlei" (1978)
(LP, Stoof, MU 7445)

After Chimera, King's Galliard and Farmers Union it's time for another one from Dutch soil: Wolverlei. The group started as a trio in 1977. A year later Rens van der Zalm joins. Rens is probably best known as a member of 'Mozaik', the 'dream band' of Andy Irvine (with Donal Lunny, Nikola Parov and Bruce Molsky). Before 'Wolverlei' he was a member of the Dutch group 'Fungus'.
In Folkworld Jos Koning said:
"... But most people would say that Wolverlei was the best acoustic folk group the Netherlands have ever had. They only recorded two albums, but they are both classics. Although they worked with traditional material, they managed to invent a new and modern sound ..."
Of course it's up to you to decide if he was right or not....

Tracks:
1. Scheepjes over zee/Boerenmai
2. Tiedeliepats
3. Rozendanslied/Cramignon
4. Las las/Het grote bed
5. Te Groenland op de klippen
6. Koosje Koosje
7. Wilgeboompjes
8. Malbroek/Wilhelmusdans/Swart laat 'm scheren
9. Het vrouwtje van 's Hertogenbosch
10. Zoon/Esklundan Polskan
11. Werkmanskind
12. De boer had ene schoen/Schots & scheef

Line up:
Kees van de Poel - zang, gitaar, draailier, harmonica;
Frans Smulders - zang, gitaar, dulcimer, draailier;
Rens van der Zalm - viool, mandoline, gitaar, harmonium;
Theo de Jong - bas;
Wim Schaftenaar - cello;
Vader Smulders - mondorgel.

Have I got a treat for you!

Slinkombas was one of Norway's first folk bands. They released their self-titled debut album in 1979, for which they won Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammy).

Their second album, ...og bas igjen, was released in 1982. Since then the members have had successfull solo careers. The singer Kirsten Bråten Berg is now recognised as one of Norway's greatest folk singers. Hallvard T. Bjørgum, who plays the eight-string Hardanger fiddle, is one of Norway's leading fiddlers.

These are my own rips, and they're not available elsewhere on the web, but the albums have recently been reissued on CD, so buy 'em if you like 'em! They are true classics of Norwegian folk.

Front cover artwork included. 192 kpbs MP3.

TITLE: BRAN - "AWEN" - Argentina - 1998
A musical perspective from Celtic Roots
----------------------------------------------------------------------http://rapidshare.com/files/164649308/Bran-AwenMp3.zip.html----------------------------------------------
Hi Lizardson and all bloggers!
This is Eliseo Mauas Pinto sending you warm greetings from Argentina on behalf of BRAN!

Just in the 10th Anniversary of it's 1st edition, it is a pleasure for me to share with all of you this sampler of the "Awen" album which I recorded under the BRAN line up in 79 festive hours between Sept. 22nd of 1997 and April 2nd 1998.
This post includes only the first 8 tracks...the zip file encloses CD Notes Lyrics Artwork This is the First Digital Recording ever done in Argentina featuring Celtic Harp. Other traditional instruments were also included such as whistles, pipes, violin, mandola, mountain dulcimer and bodhran, amongst others.
The title of the Album is related to it's opening tune, revealed to me on whistle during a session with BRAN's co-founder and guitar player Xandru Reguera, tune which in fact was pre-existent since we discovered some time after a lost take of it recorded sometime in the past by him! Awen is a welsh word related to the trance of a bard during the creation act.
Let me comment to you in brief that in the early '90's, the popular Buenos Aires based 'Poitín' band, dissolved to give birth to new bands. One of these was 'Lenda Gwyn' which after a short period gave birth to 'Duir' during the autumn Celtic New Year celebration of Samhain in 1993, proceeding to introduce new repertoire over four years of concert appearances. As one of it's leading members I left ´Duir´on Samhain '97 and began work on a solo harp project, soon after 'Duir' dissolved. That project grew in scope to become a new band: 'Bran'.
As members of 'Bran' we were drawn together by a mutual love for a style we came to describe as ´musical perspective from Celtic roots'. The band began to weave together old Celtic tunes and new tune of their own, inspired by the feelings and views of the modern Celts, always trying to explore new directions in folk music and the shared Celtic cultural heritage that spans from the British Isles to South America.
The band was joined by several other musicians to enrich the whole project and make Bran´s first album a reality. Part of the concept was to record the first Argentine CD featuring the Gaelic harp as one of it´s lead instruments. Through their arrangements, the band tried to unveil and reflect both the marvel and tragedy of a still-vivid Celtic history. This is music born of Argentinian soil that tries to capture some of the symbollism of clan marches, airs, dances, and songs of the scattered Celtic peoples. The band´s sound combines the harmonic dimension of the Gaelic harp, the rythmic pulse of assorted percussions, the weaving counterpoint of fretted instruments, the lilting melodies of fiddle and flutes, plus the undeniable Celtic feeling of the songs. Tracks of the album appeared also in the CELTICA Magazine Sampler.Throughout the years we were able to spread BRAN's music in foreign countries such as Chile, Uruguay, United States, Spain, Ireland,and United Kingdom.
Flowing with the living currents of our migratory ancient forbears, we take part in a musical and symbolic voyage.
The music of 'Bran' is like a 'round trip' carryingto 'another dimension' of our lives and back again.
We hope dew to your blog it will trip farther reaching the four corners of the world!...

The Original 1998 Line Up:
Mauricio Ceballos: flutes (irish & others),jaw harp,vocals.
Sergio Gonzalez: mandolin,mandola,bouzouki, flute, whistles, bodhran
Eliseo Mauas Pinto: Gaelic harps, whistles, percussion, harmonica, lead vocals.
Xandru Reguera: electric and acoustic guitars, fretted dulcimer , cittern
Iñaki Antolin: acoustic and digital percussions, flutes, harmonica.

Best regards to all!

This one is rare example from Roy Bailey, up to now very hard to find a complete rip.

Another Old Vinyl folk album from my collection, this one is on the Broadside label from 1977.

Martyn Wyndham-Read and the High Level Ranters
"English Sporting Ballads"

It's theme is as the title suggests a collection of sport related songs covering Wrestling, Racing, Cock fighting, Hare Coursing, Fox Hunting and Bull Baiting.
Many of these pastimes are now illegal in the so called civilised world, but still go on in places and often in secret.
The Songs are sung and played by a collection of well known British Artists that have for years formed the foundation of many groups, representing some of the finest in their art.
HIGH LEVEL RANTERS
Alistair Anderson: Concertina (English)
Tom Gilfellon: Guitar
Johnny Handle: Accordion
Colin Ross: Northumbrian Pipes, iddle, Whistle, Mouth organ, Jaw Harp.
MARTYN WYNDHAM-READ
Guitar & Vocals
Nic Jones: Fiddle, Guitar, Dulcimer

As has become the normal procedure here, this nice clean vinyl was ripped using a 24 bit digital recorder, edited with various programs: CoolEdit, Sound Forge to remove surface noise, Rumble and clicks, finally converted to MP3's with LAME 3.92 using the highQ VBR setting.
This is a full spectrum, stereo rip limited only by the final sampling rate of 44.1kHz to be CD compatible.
These tracks are NOT normalised, they are at the original dynamic range of the LP, as decided by the mastering engineer, iPod users may need to turn up the volume a bit.
You may already have a copy of this as it was previously uploaded to another blog, however I recommend this copy, it is far better than the previous one.

Folks asked for the full version of the Summerhaze album "Sweetheart"

DownloadLink: http://rapidshare.com/files/170688671/Shaze_Swwetheart.rar

This album from the 80's is very hard to describe - part folk, part jazz and part classical. This complete version has much more 80's Jazz to it. See the abridged one posted previously for the folk numbers.

PS from Reynardine.
This is probably the last batch of stuff until after Christmas (family and all that). But if anyone is interested; to follow, Alistair Anderson - Corby Crag, Dave Burland - A Dalesman's Litany, The Copper Family - A Song For Every Season (I've decided to re-rip it on my new set-up, because it's worth doing a good job on such an important lost album). Various obscure Irish albums and some more of the "lost" folk albums from the 1970s.

Good listening - Reynardine

PPS the best way to preserve all this music is to learn the songs & tunes, get out there and play them.

Their 1973 album for Trailer Records (another 'Lost Album' - if you don't know look it up on Mudcat).
This is their classic line up of Gilfellon, Handle, Ross and Anderson. One of my favourite Ranters recordings.

Please may I apologise now for the cover scans, they're not up to my usual standard since my big scanner died.

Request - has anyone got a good quality rip of 'Oak And Ash And Thorn' by Peter Bellamy - it's about the only Bellamy album I have missing. I may be able to post 'Merlin's Isle of Gramerye' soon, and 'Barrack Room Ballads' (I have three copies of the latter - one of which was still sealed and unplayed - but the pressing quality of all is attrocious) I'll get a good rip one day.

Coming soon: still working on - Martin Wyndham-Read - 'Ned Kelly And That Gang' - the definitive Australian bushranger album and Shetland Fiddlers (Leader LED2082) featuring 'Da Forty Fiddlers' and Aly Bain

bonjour à tous
j'ai retrouvé plusieurs enregistrements faits dans les années 1970 dans un petit café au pied des monts de Flandre : De Zon, tenu par Alfred Den Ouden et Kristien Dehollander par ailleurs également musiciens.
Il n'y avait qu'une dizaine de tables, environ 100 spectateurs dont la moitié debout les jours d'affluence, de superbes souvenirs sont revenus en mémoire, je veux vous en faire profiter.
La qualité n'est pas excellente mais c'est un témoignage d'une musique vivante.
Je commence avec John Kirkpatrick, suivront John Doonan, Ray Ficher et pour terminer le groupe The Reel Union, il y a eu beaucoup plus de concert mais soit je n'y était pas, soit je ne les ai pas enregistrés, désolé...

bonjour,
la suite des concerts "in De Zon", comme promis John Doonan au piccolo accompagné de l'accordéoniste Dave Bulmer le 25/3/1977. La qualité est légèrement meilleure, j'ai supprimé les commentaires et présentations (à la disposition des fans de John sur demande).
J'ai trouvé sur le net cette présentation de JD :
"John Doonan, All-Ireland and World Piccolo Champion, is often described as the Godfather of Irish Music and, in celebrating fifty years of travelling and playing, it has was said that he has been on the road longer than the white lines. in the year of his 80th birthday John died on Friday 8th March 2002. Along with his two sons, Mick (piccolo, flute, whistles, uilleann pipes and vocals) and Kevin (fiddle and vocals), the Doonan Family have travelled from their base in Hebburn, Tyne and Wear to play all over the world. Affectionately known in the north east as the 'Whistling Welder', he has had an unquestionable and significant influence on music and musicians in, and far beyond, the North of England. His grandfather also called John, played fiddle and accordion and his father George was a fiddler. John played by ear and never learned to read music. His flair saw him win an All - Ireland championship competition in Co. Roscommon playing the piccolo in 1968 and come second in the music section of the Welsh International Eisteddfod in the 1970s."

John Doonan n'a enregistré que deux LP, "Flute for the feis" en 1972 et "At the feis" en 1977 dont je ne possède qu'une copie sur cassette, si quelqu'un a les LP il peut en faire profiter les autres.


Pour info à ce jour 78 amateurs ont téléchargé le concert de John Kirkpatrick. Malgré la basse qualité de l'enregistrement cela semble intéresser quelques personnes, merci pour vos encouragements même non exprimés ;-)

De Zon suite

Le concert suivant n’est pas de Ray mais Cilla Fisher, en vous l’annonçant je me suis trompé de Fisher, il y en a tellement !
Cilla Fisher et Artie Trezise en concert ça valait le déplacement, j’ai laissé l’intrégralité de l’enregistrement, la participation du public étant un élément important du spectacle. Cilla et Artie savent très bien comment le faire réagir, ce sont de vrais professionnels du spectacle vivant. Ils jouent sur les « erreurs », involontaires ou non, de traduction, peu importe si c’est préparé les spectateurs se laissent prendre au jeu (je me suis même reconnu !).
Spectateurs en majorité français alors qu’on est en Belgique néerlandophone, un paradoxe du folk club De Zon qui attirait plus les habitants de Lille et de ses environs que les flamands autochtones. Cela a beaucoup changé depuis…

Roger Whittaker - Durham Town

Roger Whittaker has released a number of albums under this title. This one, from 1969, has never made it onto CD afaik. I thought it worth ripping because not only does it contain the best versions of some of his most famous songs, but also some real rareties difficult or impossible to find elsewhere.

01 - Dirty Old Town
02 - Those Were The Days
03 - The Impossible Dream
04 - San Miguel
05 - Where's Jack?
06 - Good Morning Starshine
07 - Durham Town (The Leavin')
08 - Petite Fleur
09 - This Moment
10 - Storm
11 - Water Boy
12 - Sunrise, Sunset

A newbie here, but to some a 50 year old fart who has loved music for a long time. A search to find some notes for our flutist to help her learn, "A Kiss in the Morning Early" brought me here. We're in a cover band, but for an upcoming 50th Anniversary the happy couple wanted a few celtic pieces. Always has been a listening passion but not playing, so I'm working on it.

To respond to this question, I just hosted a wonderful house concert with Norah Rendell and Brian Miller. She is the wonderful Irish flutist and lead singer in http://theoutsidetrack.com/ and her solo site with Brian is at http://norahrendell.com/

I highly recommend both. Maybe I'll come back later and go deeper into the 3000 odd vinyl lps I have stashed downstairs.

Mickey Newbury-Triad Studio Sessions (1991)

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv356/belubettlo/1793661.jpg

In mid-1991, Newbury recorded some demo tracks at Triad Studios in Eugene, Oregon, as a favour to the previous owner. He wasn't satisfied with the tracks, mostly covers, and they were never released. But on the two occasions when he sings his own songs, he goes off into two- or three-song medleys, and these just may be some of the best stuff he ever did.


01 - Genevieve - Lovers - How Many Times (M Newbury)
02 - Pledging My Love (D Robey/F Washington)
03 - They Will Never Take Her Love (L Payne)
04 - Unchained Melody (H Zarat)
05 - Ivory Tower (J Fulton/L Steele)
06 - You Win Again (H Williams)
07 - Summertime (G Gershwin)
08 - Just Dropped In - Wish I Was (M Newbury)

Lineup:
Mickey Newbury - guitar, vocals
Dale Bradley - cello

http://rapidshare.com/files/235114097/MNTriad91.rar

MP3 @ 256 Kbps.

In 1991, Newbury recorded some demo tracks at Triad Studios in Eugene, Oregon.
After “14 years of shelf-ageing,” a fan decided to share the tracks (excellent soundboard) on the internet.
“I’m pretty excited to put this out there. I think it’s essential in this talented songwriter’s legacy. In the short time I knew him, I got the impression that he’d understand this being unearthed.
“In late spring of 1991, shortly after we arrived in town, it was set up that Mickey Newbury would come in for a day of recording as a gift to the previous owner of the studio we had just bought.
“I hung out with him quite a bit that day during the eight or nine-hour session, setting up the recording and the mics, during his smoking breaks, coffee binges, etc. He was a crusty old guy at the time and had been haggard by the years of living the musician’s life. But we got along fairly well and he seemed very interested in what I thought of his music. It was typical insecure-but-talented BS with him, as I told him I was honestly blown away by the soul and emotion in these sessions and he shrugged it off as ‘crap’. He even does mostly covers, the times he does his own songs they’re crunched into two different drawn-out medleys.
Using his two Neumann U47’s (one on his guitar, one for the vocals) and a U87 on the cello (some hippy-looking dude who was the first chair cello player for the Eugene Symphony, Dale Bradley), we laid down all the tracks straight. Dale didn’t even know the songs, he just followed along in key, and quite the pro he was.
The response (from MN) was rather tepid, and the last time I saw or even spoke to him he came by the studio a couple of months later to get his microphones. He made some remark about how his vocals sucked that day. Sure there’re mishaps and a few humorous cracks, but I like the unrehearsed and raw atmosphere of it.
“And here it is, a few years after his death, some totally hidden sessions from the man who wrote a whole bunch of the old country and R&B hits."


Can't think of another singer as mournful as MN, and I mean that as a compliment.

Cheers.

Mr. Pine
Rewilding (2008)

Wonderful discovery. Canadian acid-folk based band - their sophomore release from 2008 with special guest vocal from Mellow Candle's Alison O'Donnell on the amazing track "Sleep of Ondine" (which sounds like a "Swaddling Songs" outtake). Terrific diversity - classical and early music influences abound; a hint of Mellow Candle and Trees influence here and there. Some lovely arrangements with strings and even a consort of recorders on "The Enclave". Even a touch of heavy metal riffing on the dark tale "Glass Petals". Male and female vocals throughout, final track is gorgeous instrumental. Just a lovely album. Read about it on Ptolemaic Terrascope website.

http://rapidshare.com/files/253006695/MNWalkingWoes.rar

MP3 @ 192kbps.

This fan collection includes two shows: from 1996, and 1998 where he is joined by Jack Williams on second guitar. He opens this show as he opened the Lulled by the Moonlight album with Three Bells For Stephen. Newbury sings: “Do you remember me, dear hearts and gentle people? I pray I haven’t stayed away too long.” and then proceeds to sing his story songs about lonely people, the ordinary man and his early pop hit, Just Dropped In. Newbury’s voice is now deep with experience and he makes all these songs sound inconsolably sad.
In an interview conducted shortly before his death in 2002 MN said, “How many people have listened to my songs and thought, ‘He must have a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a pistol in the other’. Well, I don’t. I write my sadness.”

Hi, i've just posted an album that should be of interest to you and your readers:

John James: s/t (1971) for Transatlantic

John James is an almost forgotten exponent of the British acoustic guitar movement of the late 60s/early 70s, who recorded some albums for Transatlantic and Kicking Mule, among them a few duets with John Renbourn. He's an accomplished ragtime guitarist with a pleasant voice and worth checking out for all fans of Renbourn, Wizz Jones, Stefan Grossman or Ralph McTell.

Deena Webster - Tuesday's Child (1968)

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv356/belubettlo/Deena-Webster-Tuesdays-Child---4529.jpg

Original UK LP issued in 1968 by Parlophone. Never released on CD, and now out-of-print.

Stunning British Folk/Psych Produced by Tony Palmer.

"DEENA WEBSTER: Tuesday's Child (Parlophone UK 68) very rare 6o's UK female folk/singer in her great and rare only album… Arthur Greenslade accompanied her on a few covers of Dylan, Paxton, Ochs, Donovan…highly recommended if you're into female singer collection like Catherine Howe, Julie Covington, Ann Briggs, Barbara Dickson…

There are several covers on this album, and it's a pity she didn't cover Mystery Girl because that's just what she is. This is her only album (why?);she appeared on the David Frost Show on the same night as Mary Hopkins in 1969. She released a few singles after this album,and then the trail runs cold about 1970. She may have been 17 when she recorded this album, which would put her in her late 50s now. A comment on Play It Again, Max blog says she's living in Hong Kong.
Probably the best resource for info about her is this German site, but he seems to be sseking more info about her:

http://www.gerds-musicpage.de/juwelen/websterdeena.html

Tracks:
Hurry, Tuesday Child
Hair Of Spun Gold
New York Mining Disaster 1941
Geordie
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
The House Of The Rising Sun
Who Will Buy
The Flower Lady
Summer Day Reflection Song
Colours
Tangles Of My Mind
The Last Thing On My Mind

http://rapidshare.com/files/175167608/TuesdaysDW68.zip

MP3 @256 kbps.

The influences of early Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Marianne Faithfull, and Sandy Denny echo heavily on Deena Webster's obscure 1968 British LP Tuesday's Child. Emphasizing high-voiced and earnest interpretations of contemporary songs by Donovan, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and the Bee Gees, there's also a hint of folk-pop orchestration in some of the arrangements. "Hurry, Tuesday Child" almost sounds like something Scott Walker could have sung in the late 1960s, though far more often the production has a plainer tone, and is on occasion fairly stark traditional folk. Of course, at least part of the reason this album is so obscure is that, despite the similarities to the aforementioned folk legends, Webster's voice isn't nearly as good or distinct as the vocals of Denny, Faithfull, Collins, or Baez. It's still pleasant period mid-'60s folk (actually slightly retro by the time of its 1968 release) for genre specialists. Considering how often the song was covered, "The House of the Rising Sun" is a surprising standout, Webster's haunted voice and acoustic guitar backed only by a spooky organ. : ~ Richie Unterberger

Acknowledgements to FolkPhile for the (very clean) vinyl rip, and to the excellent Play It Again, Max blog where I found the files.

If anybody has any more info about this interesting artist, please share it.

For those of you who enjoyed the Rocket Park albums posted last year, here's a couple more...

Rocket Park - Up Against Goodbye (2002-2003)

http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/4061/frontsmall.jpg

After 1999's "Teenage Folklore" and 2000's "The Effects of Eating Too Much Television", a third album was surely right around the corner for Rocket Park, right? Well, after cranking out two full length albums in two years at our expense while still working day jobs, we needed a breather. So we spent 2001 gigging, recording demos and tracks for various artists compilations, and responding to some indie label overtures. When 2002 rolled around and we were no closer to being signed, we thought about all we'd learned from Mike Martin (engineer and co-producer of the previous albums), bought our own recording gear and decided we would paint our own masterpiece. Little did we know the final brushstrokes wouldn't be in place for another seven years.

The actual recording of the album wasn't that problematic, aside from the occasional arguments that always emerge from a shared artistic endeavor. It's everything that followed that got sticky - a ridiculously protracted mixing process taking place in another city, personnel changes, a lack of effective leadership resulting from a debilitating divorce (mine), indecision, self-destructive perfectionism and, eventually, the demise of the band itself. Our friend Lauren warned us that putting the word "goodbye" in the title of our album would curse us. I can only counter that we were probably already doomed and were just reflecting that!

It's all a damn shame, really, because it really would've been (and, I guess, is, now that it's floating around) our best album. The material is stronger, the arrangements are more sophisticated, the performances are more assured. It's more of a band effort (and less naive) than "Folklore", more consistent (and less openly derivative) than "Television", and I think the engineering compares favorably to both albums. Eric Moore pounds the drums better than ever (the fill at the end of "Tell It to Samantha" may be one of his finest moments) and Dave Harris' bass lines always find that happy medium between rhythmic simplicity and melodic adventure. And, uh, I like the stuff I did, too.

Steve Minnis handled all of the guitar solos during the original sessions, and while there's no questioning the brilliance of the work that made it to the finished product, we were less convinced by a few of his efforts and used his departure from the band as an excuse to have Brian Henneman of the Bottle Rockets replace them. Thus we have his solos on "Fade to Grey" and "Tell It to Samantha" and a credible imitation of a meowing cat on, uh, "Stray Cat". And speaking of "Fade to Grey", Steve's short-lived replacement Scott Swartz played pedal steel and our old friend Mark Stephens of The Highway Matrons sang the lead vocal.

In closing, all I can say is - sorry it took so long! I would also like to dedicate "Tell It to Samantha" to the memory of Scott Edwards, who I learned had passed away a few years ago. He was an excellent bassist and harmony vocalist who provided the riff that ended up becoming central to that song. Our collaboration in Not Actual Size (1991-1992) was short and turbulent and it's a shame we never got to try it again without the impediment of youth. Rock on, brother.

Rocket Park - Ghosts, Villains, Sirens and Superstars: The Alternate Teenage Folklore (1995-2003)

http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/6840/ghostssmall.jpg

September 17th, 2009 is the tenth anniversary of the release of my old band Rocket Park's first album "Teenage Folklore", and I'm commemorating that milestone with this collection of live recordings and solo demos, presented in the same running order as the original album. Just to sweeten the deal, track thirteen is a previously unreleased song from the "Teenage Folklore" sessions, "Running Through the Night" - for the life of me, I'm not sure why we left if off. The fidelity of many tracks is questionable, as is usual for something like this - think of it as an official bootleg for Rocket Park and/or Brian Andrew Marek freaks only. Plain ol' freaks might dig it to.

Tom Paxton proved to be one of the most durable of the singer/songwriters to emerge from the Greenwich Village folk revival scene of the early '60s. In some ways, he had more in common with the late-'50s generation of folksingers such as Dave Van Ronk (who was 16 months his senior) and even older performers than with the new crop of singer/songwriters with whom he tended to be associated, such as Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs (both of whom were several years his junior). But like Dylan and Ochs, and unlike Van Ronk, Paxton was a songwriter caught up in the left-wing political movements of the time and inspired to compose topical and protest songs. In general, his tended to be more lighthearted than theirs (the musical satirist Tom Lehrer was at least as much of an influence on him as Woody Guthrie), though he could be just as witty and just as harshly critical of his opponents. Like such mentors as Pete Seeger, and unlike Dylan, he never cared to make much of a transition to the mainstream, never picked up an electric guitar and tried to play rock & roll. (None of his many albums ever reached the Top 100, and he never scored a chart single as a recording artist.) Nor did he burn out in the '70s like Ochs. Instead, he kept on, year in and year out, writing and singing songs that commented, often humorously, on the state of the body politic. He also contributed more than a few love songs, some songs of joyous celebration, and especially later in his career, many children's songs. In fact, his biggest successes as a songwriter, the songs that became hits for others and were covered over and over, proving to be his most valuable copyrights, fit into these respective categories: "The Last Thing on My Mind" (by far his most popular work), "Bottle of Wine," and "The Marvelous Toy." But other artists were also attracted to such socially conscious compositions as "What Did You Learn in School Today?" and "Whose Garden Was This?," as well as reflective, melancholy songs like "Ramblin' Boy" and "I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound." : ~ William Ruhlmann


A stunning soprano tone has made Anne Hills one of contemporary folk music's premier vocalists. But her affinity for choosing unforgettable material and her knack for writing heartfelt original songs have brought her to the upper echelon of her craft. In addition to recording three memorable solo albums, Hills has recorded two duo albums with Cindy Mangsen and three trio albums with Mangsen and Priscilla Herdman. A veteran of the Chicago folk scene of the 1980s, she performed in a legendary trio with folk singers Tom Paxton and Bob Gibson. Her vocals have also been featured on albums by Jim Post, Michael Smith, Livingston Taylor, Artie Traum and Si Kahn. : ~ Craig Harris.


Cheers.

I didn't know where else to put this, but THTM should really consider uploading stuff to something else than rapidshare.

Rapidshare is slow and has a huge cooldown timer of 15 minutes.

I think many people would prefer if megaupload was used, it is silly fast and has a far less strict cooldown period. Or try fileducky, which uploads the files to multiple mirrors at once (i.e. more links so not dead as quickly).

Recorded 4 November 2006 at BBC Broadcasting House, London

19 min. MP3 @ 128 kbps

http://rapidshare.com/files/182988440/MGAK3Dec06.zip

Apologies for a couple of minor (IMHO) glitches in the recording towards the end; too late to re-record by the time I found out about them.
Pic is not from BBC session, but from a few weeks later.


Thomm Jutz

For Thomm Jutz, living and making music in Nashville, Tennessee has always seemed like the most natural thing in the world. The emerging producer/engineer/guitarist/songwriter had made up his mind by the time he was a 12-year-old guitar student that he was absolutely headed for Music City, USA. The fact the he grew up in a "tiny village" in the south of Germany was never an obstacle for Jutz, who has turned it all to his creative advantage, bringing a uniquely musical perspective and a classical discipline to the music he makes and to every project he produces. These days, he splits his time between TJ Tunes, his busy Nashville recording studio, and regular tours as guitarist for Folkabilly Queen Nanci Griffith. Other artists Jutz has played and/or recorded with include David Olney, Steve Young, Mary Gauthier and Michael Johnson.
Growing up the son of the local teacher and church choir director, Jutz was reading music before he could read books. From there, it was the piano and the flute, where he rose as a youngster to competition level. But his musical education began in earnest the day he discovered the Canadian Forces and American Forces Networks, both broadcasting a wide variety of real country music to surrounding military bases. With his guitar always in hand, Jutz absorbed all of it – every song and every guitar lick on the fly – long before he ever knew what the singer was actually singing about. By the age of 15, he was leading local bands through endless gigs at those same military bases.
He was living a double life – studying classical guitar at university during the day and playing in smoky clubs into the night – when he first heard the music of Townes Van Zandt. The discovery was a creative turning point for Jutz. With a growing resume of prestigious gigs and production successes in his home country, Jutz made the move to Nashville in 2003, and he hasn't stopped since. Working with many of the musicians, writers and artists he grew up listening to, he retains that ability to hear through to the heart of a song. With an unerring ear, a guitarist's touch and a songwriter’s soul, Thomm Jutz is right where he belongs. : ~ h**p://thommjutz.com/bio.html


Andy Kershaw was one of my favourite BBC presenters; hope he's getting over his troubles.

Cheers.

He Shall Overcome: Pete Seeger at 90 (Billy Bragg) - BBC R2

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv356/belubettlo/Seeger90.jpg


He Shall Overcome: Pete Seeger at 90
BBC Radio 2, 09 Dec 2009

In the year that Pete Seeger celebrates his 90th birthday, Billy Bragg tells the story of a remarkable life in folk music and politics.
Pete Seeger was born during the great depression and, in the 90 years since, he has become an influential and iconic figure. His forthright lyrics about civil rights, unions and ordinary Americans, sung with the aid of a banjo, ensured that he was blacklisted for decades. Never able to play on mainstream TV or radio, he took to the road, bringing his message to the very people he was writing and singing about.
Billy Bragg helps explain the importance of Seeger, and we hear many different versions of his classic songs. We also hear from singers who have joined him on stage, or taken to the stage because of him, as well as those who have sung his songs.
Contributors include the Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter Nanci Griffith; Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, who remembers how they recorded Turn Turn, Turn and turned it into a worldwide number one; Donavan describes how important Seeger was to him; and Tom Paxton, who was part of the 60s Greenwich Village scene with Pete, explains how important We Shall Overcome was to the whole Civil Rights movement. A song which has become a musical symbol of resistance to oppression.

Biography

b. Mary Noel McCaslin, 22 December 1946, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. McCaslin's family relocated to California in 1952, where, particularly influenced by Marty Robbins and Hedy West, she gained an interest in the music scene and soon learned guitar and banjo. She also had a deep interest in the Old West and she found Robbins' cowboy ballads gave her the inspiration to write her own Western songs.
In the early 60s, she began singing in local clubs and made her first recordings for Capitol Records in 1967. In 1969, she recorded for Barnaby Records that saw the release of Goodnight Everybody. In the early 70s, while singing at a folk festival, she met singer-songwriter Jim Ringer. They began to work together (they eventually married in 1978) but McCaslin made several solo recordings for Philo Records which led to album releases. She became involved in the folk revival and was later described along with singers such as Carolyn Hester and Jeannie West as being among "the first female role models in youth culture who projected intelligence and independence". McCaslin and Ringer recorded a duet album in 1978 although Ringer also sang harmony or backing vocals on many of her recordings. In 1979, some of her Philo recordings were licensed to Mercury Records which led to her popular Sunny California. In 1981, she moved to Flying Fish Records and Rounder Records acquired all the releases that she had had on the Philo label. McCaslin wrote and performed the soundtrack music for Cattle Annie And Little Britches, a movie starring Burt Lancaster. McCaslin and Ringer continued to play together on tours and at major festivals until 1989, when they divorced.
Many writers contend that McCaslin has never been afforded the credits her talents merit. Rolling Stone once described her in flowing style as "a prairie songstress who creates musical moments of crystalized romance". McCaslin's style has been likened to a mixture of mountain music and singer-songwriter folk while others suggest that she could perhaps be the female version of her inspiration Marty Robbins.
: ~ Copyright Muze UK Ltd. 1989 - 2005


MM says on her homepage that this album has long been out of print, but remains one of her favourite MM albums.

http://www.marymccaslin.com/GESCFAQ.htm


If anybody could come up with her debut album, Goodnight Everybody (1969), out of print for decades, I'd be very interested.

I first got into MM when I read that she'd been an influence on Gretchen Peters, and I find her to be a very rewarding artist, who deserves to be more widely-heard.

Pete Molinari - Dylanesque Young English Troubadour


http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv356/belubettlo/molinaripicsg0.jpg


I usually reserve the hackneyed epithet "Dylanesque" for Paul Siebel, but after hearing Pete Molinari, I think he's worthy of the description too. He not only sings like the man, but he looks and dresses like him, too, and he's even had a stint playing in the bars and cafes of Greenwich Village. Well worth checking out.

Broadcast on McLean's Country, BBC Radio Ulster.


A British singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Pete Molinari draws on the ghosts of Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, and Phil Ochs and the spirit of the great folk revival of the 1960s for his inspiration, and by looking to and drawing on this musical past, he manages to channel it into a fresh and still reverent contemporary sound. Born into a large Maltese/Italian/Egyptian family in Chatham, Kent, Molinari fell early under the spell of his older brothers' record collections, and grew up fascinated by the music of John Coltrane, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Scott, Leadbelly, Hank Williams, Billie Holiday, and others from a bygone era. After reading Guthrie's Bound for Glory and Jack Kerouac's On the Road, he was inspired to set off for New York City and spent a couple of years playing and honing his performing skills in the legendary folk and blues clubs there, also finding time to visit Memphis, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Los Angeles before returning to Chatham, where he recorded his debut album, 2006's Walking Off the Map, on an old Revox tape machine in his friend Billy Childish's kitchen. For the follow-up, 2008's A Virtual Landslide, Molinari worked with producer Liam Watson at Toe Rag Studios, and the album included some tracks with a full band and a throwback sound that was still somehow fresh and contemporary even as it suggested echoes from another time. ~ Steve Leggett, All Music Guide

The Vertigo Swirl - A New Swirled Record (2010)

In late 2009, "Manik" Myk Thompson suggested we revive our long dormant collaboration with some recording of an experimental/psychedelic nature. I countered by suggesting that we do so with the goal of a recording a second album under The Vertigo Swirl identity. We began with a day of improvisation that yielded "Jeremy's First Flight", "Third Sun from the Stone" and the compositional beginnings of "The Megalith". I added my contributions to some tracks that Myk had begun at home ("We've Got Electricity", "Molehill Sherpa", "Loneliness Is a Choice" and "Got Yer Back") while he, in turn, added guitar to my own pet projects ("You Belong in Outer Space" and "The Megalith"), a couple of guest performers did their thing and, voila, we had a new swirled record - eight paths of excess trod by two psychedelic brothers in arms.

Kathy Smith - 2 (1971)

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/vv356/belubettlo/KathySmith2a.jpg


KS was part of the California 60s folkie scene. She's supposed to have coined the phrase "love generation." She appeared at the IOW Festival in 1970.
She recorded a couple of albums for Ritchie Havens' short-lived Stormy Forest label. The first was
re-issued in 2007, but this one has never been released on CD, so is perforce a vinyl rip.
An interesting listen, from the Joni Mitchell/Judy Collins school.


Tracklist:
1.Lady Of Lavender
2.It's Taking So Long
3.Rock & Roll Star
4.Willie
5.Fly Off With The Wind
6.Seven Virgins
7.For Emile
8.Travel In A Circle
9.Blessed Be The People


Personnel:
Don Alias ; Drums & Percusssion
Warren Bernhardt ; Keyboads
Gerry Germont ; Bass
Jan Hammer ; Keyboads
Leslie Jones ; Guitar
Bill La Vorgna ; Drums & Percusssion
Tony Levin ; Bass
Donald McDonald ; Drums & Percusssion
Don Sarlin ; Guitar & Soul
Jimmie Spheeris ; Pa Pa Umau & Insanity
Jeremy Steig ; Flute
Daniel Ben Zebulon

This is indeed such an amazing site and a real treasure of information and passion. I'm thrilled to see so many of the folks that I grew up with (Gordon Bok, Fairport, Bensusan, Seeger, Ed Tricket, Archie Fischer, etc). However I feel that a major omission has been made with no comment or nods to the great David Mallett: http://davidmallett.com/ Easily one of the greatest songwriters ever. I'd love to know if there are any bootlegs of his work available. I have all of his officially released work (Hard Light is one of my favorites...which is why I'm always on the lookout for live recordings of his). Again, thanks for all that this site has offered over the years and I look forward to more.

Lisa Will Insult You, Darling is a tiny music project by S.Jegorow, who grew up in Poland and currently lives in the western part of Germany. He makes his living by selling lamps and tries to finish his studies in literature..someday. He spent most of his life collecting music and started writing his own songs only a few years ago. It's all about lo-fi tunes recorded on an old tape deck and his personal computer. A tiny usb microphone stuck to a wine bottle and weird lines on the computer screen or a sheet of paper.

His first 8-track record "tam.tam" has been completed in march 2010. A few more will follow.


The record can be downloaded for free via Bandcamp: http://lisawillinsultyoudarling.bandcamp.com/

You should check out Stone Face... he does both folk-y stuff and slightly more experimental instrumentals, but most importantly he writes great tunes with memorable lyrics. He has four albums for download here:

Finally! The third chapter in the Vertigo Swirl saga...

The Vertigo Swirl - Swirl 3 (2011)

Brian Andrew Marek and "Manik" Myk Thompson return with their newest and grandest audio cathedral to excess. Sequenced to mimic a classic vinyl double album, Swirl 3 is an epic joyride through psychedelia, progressive rock, Krautrock and all points in between. Dive in.

I really liked A Lost Circus-Wolf Kroeger. Here's the album bio from his site.

Roaming in the realm of Folk-Rock,
Wolf blended his sixties influences with a gloomy sound inspired by thirties
recordings to create A Lost Circus.

He had full control over his first album
as he wrote, performed, engineered and
produced it on his own. Even though he
had limited resources, this gave him the liberty to explore new avenues
and confront the commercial standards
of todays over-processed music scene by developing his own sound.

Lyric wise, A Lost Circus was crafted as
a story-telling album in which the Devil
has escaped from hell and shares his
experiences with another traveller.
Out of the main storyline, all the songs stand on their own as their plot grows around existentialism.

With a less disective approach, just let your mind wander and enjoy
A Lost Circus for what it is: music.
