That MIC recording is brilliant. If you can find it, dig the Incus CD Music Improvisation Company 1968-1971.

great chiming guitars in Kenyan band from early 80s' sound. LOving this on repeat listen

locally based Swedish singer songwriter with sparse electric arrangements.
Released o local label Rusted Rail

Almost complete recordings of Edinburgh band, misses the a side of their first single.
Nice angular stuff I saw being called psychedelic in press o fthe time. Have been meaning to pick up a copy of teh lp for decades and this is the new release on Cherry Red as a 3cd.
Like it.

When I was in my late teens, I had a number of excellent acid trips that featured OTC very prominently. I was obsessed with them.

I have this as a 2016 remaster by Vangelis himself. I'm assuming its pretty authentic to the original but it has some textures I would associate with later eras. THis veers from stomping almost industrial sounding glammy stuff to atmospheric near ambient stuff.
Enjoying what I'm hearing haven't really dedicated much time to it yet since its one of 3 discs on a 3 changer.
There's a cameo vocal from a voice I recognise from earlier Aphrodites Child in a couple of places that I would have assumed was Demis Roussos earlier but is it the guitarist who is on this
Anyway quite enjoying this need to get more familiar with it and some of my opinions may alter with familiarity.
It's quite cheap on Dodax at the moment, not sure if that's standard price for it.

Avant garagey post punk band from Georgia featuring Don Fleming and Bruce joyner.
THis was recorded in 1978 so is ahead of the curve I think. This cd version is augmented by a contemporary live set and some demoes.
Shows the influence of theh Velvets in the same way that the early Modern lovers did and I think some of their other influences.
Vocals may be naively poppy too.
reminds me heavily of Michael Yonkers Microminiature Love and the chunkiness of the first 13FE lp
Been meaning to pick this up for a while so glad i finally did.

early solo set by Herbie that I got in an original album series or equivalent.
Has some names from Latin jazz scene on and is pretty sparse. Cool stuff from 64

^ Wow, thanks for the heads-up--hadn't heard or heard of this trio grouping of these great players before; am now checking out the 2015 S/T studio album's version of "If Not Now" with Lonberg-Holm instead on guitar, an inst I've never heard him play before

Been meaning to pick this up since it came out, the 3cd summary of a series of shows teh Dead played in a region overa couple of years in the early 70s. So far I've only listened to disc 2 which has a 3/4 hrPLaying IN The Band and a shorter Eyes of The World.
I think the differentiation between 73 and before is in the way the music seems to be bubbled by the bass and maybe its not as thoroughly psychedelic as it was in earlier years more jazz as rock than thoroughly lysergic. Still pretty exploratory and questing.
I like all of the pre-retirement years I think , though probably slightly less 71 than other years. & this is still pretty great.
Then like the return stuff a deal less, don't like disco Dead do like them again around 80 and a bit less afterwards. They're doing something else later on which may be more roots related but to me the early years are what teh band are about and since I'm not going to see a live version of teh band again I might as well concentrate on the era I like the best.

LIve sets by Finnish band from the time of their lp Lambertland . Exploring the material I think just pre-release.
More angular and less thoroughly freeflowing than someone like the Dead still pretty improvisatory.
Been trying to pick up the 50th anniversary sets by the band who I'd heard of a long time before exploring.
Really like the material anyway.

Found this in a pile of cds at the end of my bed and I don't think I've really become familiar with it up til now. Another good volumne of Ethiopiques. Do enjoy most of the series I've heard I think this and the Zanzibar companion series.

I think I at least had that David S Ware a couple of decades ago. Must take some time this year and see what cds I bought when I lived in Dublin are still here and what still play. Is cd rot still a thing cos people were talking about it a couple of decades ago. Did manufacture change.

Anyway I recognise the cover and was having purchases shaped by reading various alternative press at the time Wire,Forcedexposure, Puncture and a few others. But really should have kept a database of what I had and lost over the years.

Stevolende, Saturday, 23 January 2021 07:37 (four days ago) link

Do have a couple of box sets of Ribeiro releases which are mainly good. There was a French one had the early releases in a too quiet master from what I remember and a better one that went up to about 79 that I need to relishes to.
Also some pretty interesting live sets circulating on torrent sites from I think 71 and 72.

recently released compilation of Ethiopian funk . Great fuzz guitars and stuff.
UNfortunately nop liner notes. So I need to see if the label will sell me a set o fthe liners for the 12" vinyl versions. I'm assuming taht is the problem here for some reason looks like the complete set on vinyl gets a linernote booklet but the cd doesn't and I thin the same is true for the individual sets not sure why they couldn't make a 5" set of teh lnernotes too.
Would like to know what Ayalew is singing about

I bought the originak album series of Mountain lps when I heard that Leslie West had died over Xmas. Not sure why I hadn't picked up on them before. Have picked up on West's earlier band The Vagrants.
Listening to this over the last few days shows me more nuance than I first thought but still not sure how good the sound on this is .
NIce heavy stuff but now hearing other dimensions to it.

free cd with the book on the Third Ear Band that came out recently . it claims to be the Unreleased lp The Dragon Wakes sounds like the band from different times though and some bits with a great sense of groove. I thought I got a version of the Dragon Wakes with the Esoteric version of the 2nd lp as Elements. Anyway some great semi hypnotic music that I'm glad to have./
THis unreleased lp has more electric input than I was expecting.
