Need your help

Jara said...

Hello
Sorry to bother you. I´m Jara- Czech rep. As I see you´re music expert
60´ s-70´s rock music.Can you help me?
I have any „mystery tracks“ . I recorded it in 1971-1978 from Radio
Luxembourg- I think tracks are U.K. Origin - sorry for poor quality. It
would be nice if you could listen to those short bad quality sound clips
and try to recognise something- I attached them.

Clip 1- my greatest mystery- don´t know anything about it- recorded in
early 1971.
Clip 2- this song is more „rock“ than „reggae“
Clip 3- I did googling with part of lyrics- „that´s my fire, that´s your
body...many crazy people wanted ….? places with you „ - Can I
hear the lyrics properly?....no result.
Clip 4- Sounds like Suzi Quatro but nobody knows this track

If you don´t recognize anything, could you give me advice ? Who could
identify any of those tracks?

Any help would be appreciated
Regards
Jara

Wow -- these are really interesting sounding. Something about how low-fi they are makes them seem cooler than a better quality recording might sound. "Reggae 75" and "crazy people 77" are particularly engaging.

Last one is definitely NOT Suzi Quatro. No idea on any of these... my guess from the accents is that none are UK.

Wow, these tracks are really terrible - it sure is a reminder to me how much those old tapes can corrupt with time.

I can't identify any of these - not even the slighest remembrance of them so most likely I never heard them here in Australia. My transcription/notes of each of the tracks go like follows (and I could very easily be hearing it all wrong).

Crazy People track
"Doria??? And I'll throw you
There's a tiger - let it go Bobby
Bobby it's gonna see you through
Oh, it's gonna see you through
Meddy???
Crazy People
Gonna {take,tape} ????? with you"

So-called Reggae track??
.....away - oh my lord!???
to be too trusting in my lord
to be too trusting in my pretty face (please be gentle?)
to be too trusting in my lord
to be too trusting in my happy face (very happy brothers?)
to be too trusting in my lord
to be bad....

Mystery
Lots of "for a lifetime"???
otherwise sounds completely unintelligible.

Like Suzi Quatro
Not sure with the distortion but sounds like a little girl voice rather than Suzi's strong rock - music backing seems earlier too - say late 1950s - sounds a bit like Sue Thompson (but isn't). "been someone else's love before" appears in the lyrics.

I could not track down any of these which certainly intrigues me. Just too big a challenge these ones.
