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

1973 set by great jazz vocalist. not quite sure what to call the jazz style on here or even if it is all one style.
Band is 3 members of MIles Davis live band from teh time possibly 4 if Miles himself actually plays on this , I think he directs a bit.
Dave Liebman, Mtume and drummer Al Foster plus 2 Japanese players.
Very nice set anyway. Captured in a studio in japan hence the players on it including the Miles Davis band who happened to be playing live there at teh time.
Would be so great if there was more music from thsi time.She had been separated from her husband Max Roach and wa sundergoing som eother personal issues. BUt voice is strong.

Mojo season inspired compilation. Has some interesting stuff on including various bits of folk influenced stuff and some jazz.
Starts a bit slick though possibly

2nd lp by German group.
Still has a bit of the Eastern tinge that is on the first s/t lp but a bit less than on that lp.
So a bit more rocky, still pretty great just not as superlative as that first one.

I'm listening to the last Apartments album on repeat lately, perfect for the extended Canadian quarantine blues. I think it might be Peter Milton Walsh's best-ever set of songs. Really superlative aging-sad-man shit, "late work" type shit.

Found this in my stacks last night, no idea I owned it or why. Overproduced 1985 Japanese pop/rock that even goes kinda Quiet Storm at one point. I didn't like it at all. But it has gone for up to $138 on Discogs? Make me an offer!


Three Rings for the Elven Bishop (Dan Peterson), Thursday, 8 April 2021 15:02 (one week ago) link

I'd guess that price rise is due to this comp from 2020:

The new compilation of all of the mid 60s material by the great psychedelic band originally from California who John Peel was instrumental in getting to move to London. So far I've listened to the first disc which is the LOndon era material with new English guitarist Tony Hill . He was later shown to be pretty incredible when he moved onto High Tide, here he may be slightly overshadowed by Glenn campbell on pedal steel in fact seems like all of teh band is pretty masterful. I love the drum sound on a lot of this.
Pretty essential psychedelic stuff.
NOt heard the 2nd disc which is their Riverside era yet. I think this set is largely mono since the earlier Edsel set was i fake stereo .
It also contains a summary of Mike Stax's lengthy band history which appeared across several issues of Ugly Things a few years ago as teh linernotes.
Pretty necessary methinks

THe 3rd and most electronic drenched lp by the Herbie Hancock led band. I haven't listened to this as intently as I did this week. & this was teh 2nd copy of the disc i had bought as part of a 3cd set of Herbie's mid 70s stuff.
I just read Bob Gluck's book on the band, You'll Know When You Get There which was a really good read. I have all 3 lps on cd, couldn't find teh previous 2 last week but need to really listen to those too.
BUT thgis is really something else electronic input makes it really psychedelic . Or at least contributes even more to it. THe bands interaction particularly on the longest track here Hornets is quite amazing too. Very trippy.
Shame they couldn't continue to build on what tehy were getting to. BUt glad we've got these 3 and the live stuff including a few video clips from live sets on tv. I thik that stuff is not as electronically drenched as this though since its from theh couple of years before. So a bit less Patrick Gleason who became increasingly integrated over teh years as did the sound guy who was treating instruments as tehy played and stuff.

THis week was the 3rddisc of this set. Pretty great guitar and his voice . Not quite as innovative as the mid 60s stuff i think but still pretty great.
Haven't heard the first disc yet.
Have seriously enjoyed the 2 discs I've heard so far though.
IU think this is from around 68 onwards. But he changed labels around the turn of the 70s so this cuts off at that point.
Again pretty essential I think.
THink I seriously like soul stuff from the turn of the 70s

xpost to sleeve - the gonchavrova collection? only recently came across her due to her association with various soviet jazz/experimental people of the time... after a first listen i really like it. hopefully there'll be a vol.2 one day.

also that turkish comp looks awesome. only familiar with a few names on there... have never heard any okay temiz outside a jazz context.
