Hi Lizardson.
I'm willing to bet that quite a few people here - at least those in Europe of a certain age! - first heard Fairport Convention, Nick Drake or John Martyn on one of the 4 legendary sampler albums released by Island Records in the late 60s, early 70s. Here are two of them (the others being 'Bumpers' and 'El Pea'). Island's reputation at the time was so good that many of us bought the LPs without even knowing who some of the acts were. Simply being on the Island label was enough.

"You Can All Join In" 1969

01. Song for Jeffrey - Jethro Tull
02. Sunshine Help Me - Spooky Tooth
03. I'm a Mover - Free
04. What's That Sound - Art
05. Pearly Queen - Tramline
06. You Can All Join In - Traffic
07. Meet on the Ledge - Fairport Convention
08. Rainbow Chaser - Nirvana
09. Dusty - John Martyn
10. I'll Go Girl - Clouds
11. Somebody Help Me - Spencer Davis Group
12. Gasoline Alley - Wynder K Frog

"Nice Enough To Eat" 1969

01. Cajun Woman - Fairport Convention
02. At The Crossroads - Mott The Hoople
03. Better By You, Better Than Me - Spooky Tooth
04. We Used To Know - Jethro Tull
05. Woman - Free
06. I Keep Singing That Same Old Song - Heavy Jelly
07. Sing Me A Song That I Know - Blodwyn Pig
08. Forty Thousand Headmen - Traffic
09. Time Has Told Me - Nick Drake
10. 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson
11. Gungamai - Quintessence
12. Strangely Strange But Oddly Normal - Dr Strangely Strange

Hi Lizardson,
Maybe not your kinda thing but:
Kiss played last week as a three piece.
Paul Stanley was taken to hospital after a heart scare,
but the band played on!
An historic occasion, and here it is:
All the best to Paul & let's hope for a speedy recovery.
Titus Lux.
P.S. It's not my rip so don't shoot the messinger! I've not listened to it yet.
Artwork is included.

Just played it.
It's not the 'heart scare' gig.
It's an audience recording of a show last week but the 3 piece affair was only the other night (in Califonia I believe)
Still, they do 'All American Man' - a rarity. Paul sounds really croaky.
Titus Lux.

I was wrong with the Kiss but here's one I CAN vouch for:
BOC in Cleveland 1973
A radio broadcast - the odd glitch but excellent for the era. From a time when Albert was clearly running the show.
Not my rip. Artwork inc.

Wow! Thanks for the Island samplers...the sight of those covers instantly whisked me back to secondary school days...long hair,burgundy cord bell-bottoms,red grandad vest...wish I looked like that now!Anybody able to offer the other 2 Island doubles or Harvest's 'A BREATH OF FRESH AIR' or Vertigo's 'VERTIGO ANNUAL'...

I'll try to upload 'El Pea' in the next few days. Unfortunately, I no longer have 'Bumpers.' The only other samplers I had - that I can remember - were 'The Rock Machine Turns You On' (what a title!) and 'Clogs,' a pretty good folk sampler, both lost in the dim distant past.
I know what you mean about the covers - though my gandad vest was a tie-dye job.

Hi Lizarson,
Thanks for these awesome compilations with some of the best of Island Records in the 60's & 70's. I will appreciate if you post the other samplers "Bumpers" & "El Pea".

Thanks hermanthegerman! Bumpers is the one I was missing so I really appreciate it. As I said before, I can upload El Pea but it might have to wait a couple of weeks as I am moving house right now and, frankly, going slowly crazy!
Thanks again. :-)

I'll look forward to El Pea - I used to have all these samplers, and though I now have most of my favourite tracks from them on CD, it's nice to recapture the odd one I've missed.

I've got both of these on vinyl; thanks so much for doing all the hard work and making them available in this format.
