Pink Floyd KQED 1970



Well here is a little Pink Floyd for this Christmas Eve. Not sure the the whole deal on this. The sound is amzing this much I do know. The story behind this recording has brought some debate. Feel free to weigh in. This is what was written with the recording I got.

"Disclaimer"


"This audio is not from a DVD transfer. This recording
comes straight from a DAT transfer from the master
reels. "

"This is the story I was told when I received
this recording. During the mastering of the

KQED DVD, an employee and avid music fan had
access to the master reels. Not wanting to let
this moment pass, he managed to make a copy.
From there other copies were distributed from his
master copy. This recording was taken directly from

his master copy. I received this from a friend of a
friend who knew I was a huge Pink Floyd fan and

audio enthusiast. I was asked if I had ever heard
of a KQED television session? At that time I had not.
I'm told he can get me a copy of the audio. At this
point in time I was highly skeptical. A few weeks
later I received an overnight delivery. And the rest

is history. "

"Too bad you greedy bootleggers can't get a hold
of my master copy. Set the music free. I hope everyone
enjoys my efforts."

OK, So now you know as much about this as I do. I do enjoy the effort. The sound is amazing. Merry Christmas Eve.

Spiritualized "Acoustic Mainline" Union Chapel, Islington, London

This is a must have concert. Jason Spaceman does it again. I just got this concert a few days ago, and haven't stopped listening to it yet. Recorded by musicsaves00. The concert takes place at Union Chapel, Islington, London on December, 9th 2007. This is Psychedelic Gospel. If some of these songs don't make your heart feel like it wants to swell and explode? There is something wrong with you. Songs like "Think I'm in Love," "Lord Can You Hear Me," and "Stop Your Crying," sound beautiful with the Gospel Choir. "Ladies and Gentlemen We Ar Floating in Space" eloquently blending into "Only Fools Rush In" makes you want to cry with Joy. And the icing on the cake is Jason doing his own rendition of "Silent Night" like only this Psychedelic man can. I just can't say enough good things, about this version of the group, and the truly beautiful music they made, on this night.

Happy Birthday Liz. :) Here is some music especially for you.

Spiritualized "Acoustic Mainlines" Part 1.
Spiritualized "Acoustic Mainlines" Part 2.

Led Zeppelin 12/10/2007


So, they ride again. I just got a copy of the show. The people are going nuts. The show itself rocks pretty hard as well. Sound quality is not bad. Recorded by Sloburn. Who I can't thank enough.

This is his own review on his recording. "This is not the best recording I have ever made. Not even close. Section 407 is all the way up in line with the ending of the floor. Fortunately I managed to move down from the second to last row which was considerably higher up than row J."

"Since this show is what it is I assume most can live without perfection for awhile. I'm sure better sources will turn up but this is listenable and will give you a great feel for the show."

I could not agree with him more. This show is now pretty much everywhere. But if you haven't come across it yet. Blog Stoned has a great page of Sloburn's recording it's both in FLAC and MP3. He also has a bunch of video links aswell.
Go check it out. Thanx to both of these guys.

The Great Lost Kinks Album

The title doesn't lie. This album is GREAT. A must have for all die hard Kinks lovers. I have just recently acquired this album, and haven't stopped listening to it yet. This album has 30 unreleased tracks spanning the time period from 1963 to 1970. Now, if this wasn't cool enough for you, here is the best part. This album was put together by the man himself Ray Davies. It was also produced by Ray Davies and Shel Talmy. And what a wonderful job they did. The sound is spectacular. Released in 2000 to a very limited run this is a very hard cd to get. I have put it in two zip files. Just to try and keep the sound quality (vbr 320). So waste no time, you wont be disappointed.

Liz. That means you. Download this gem. :) Get on o

The Flying Burrito Brothers - Avalon Ballroom 1969


I just picked this up a few days ago. I love it. The sound is amazing. Amoeba Records did a great job on packaging this 2 CD Set. Well worth the $17 bucks I paid. The discs contain two concerts at The Avalon Ballroom in San Fransisco CA, on April 6-7, 1969. The Brothers opened for The Grateful Dead, which is why these gems are on tape to begin with. Owsley "Bear" Stanley recorded the evening. These tapes rested in the Bear's Vault for the next 38 years. With the determination of Dave Prinz we our now able hear these two fabulous nights. If you are a Gram Parsons fan you should not hesitate to own this. If you are not sure. Go check it out at Amoeba Records.

Eduardo Mateo - Mateo Solo Bien Se Lame

What can I say about this record other than I truly love it. Nice, simple, clean and a hundred percent beautiful. The album was released in 1972. Vocals, guitar, and lite percussion. It is just a pure joy to listen to. It has a bit of a rough kinda one take feel to it. With count offs, and slating out song titles, couple of false starts. But that doesn't mean the production is bad, it is quite the opposite, it's amazing. I honestly know very little about Eduardo Mateo. So, here is a brief writeup taken from Wikipedia.

Eduardo Mateo (1940-1990) was a Uruguayan singer, songwriter, guitarist and arranger. He played a key role in the development of the modern Uruguayan pop music mixing rock, jazz, bossa nova, and local rhythms like candombe, in a similar way than Brazilian Tropicalismo. Musicians like Argentinian songwriter Juana Molina orAcademy Award winners Jorge Drexler and Gustavo Sataolalla cited Mateo as a big influence. Artists like Pedro Azner, Milton Nascimento or Leon Gieco have covered his songs.

Hope you dig this as much as I do.

Pink Floyd - Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

I picked up Pink Floyd's 40th Anniversary reissue of Piper at the Gates Of Dawn yesterday. I opted for the Deluxe version, which is the three cd set. The two cd set came out last week, which is the mono and stereo version of the album. The Deluxe has not only the third cd but a book that Syd Barrett put together and given to a a girlfriend at the time. Very strange little book I must say the title is called "Enjoy Fart." They did a very good job with the remaster and packaging. And it's nice to have the singles and alternate takes remastered on the 3rd disc. I can get rid of the low quality version I had. My only question is why three cds? The album isn't long, they could have put the mono and stereo version on one disc. At least that is what I thought before I got it. Now I like it this way. It gives each album it's own personal domain. I like it. Over all I would recommend the purchase of the Deluxe version over the 2 disc. The price is not allot more and definitely worth the coin. Forty years old, and still just as new, and scary, and wonderful, and tingly, as the day I first heard it. This album has put a great psychedelic ending to the 40th Anniversary of the Summer of Love.

The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band

The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band say that three times fast. This is a band definitely worth checking out. Their music is all over the place. From serious to silly, happy to sad, and just plain out wacky weird. They have a rather interesting history as well. Apparently Bob Markley the lead vocalist and creator of the band is quite the character. Rather than me try to get into explosive history check out this article The Legend of The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. It is well worth the read, and it really got me interested in their music. Though Markley has been titled as the weak link of the band, I find his part essential. Yes, at points his lack of ability is apparent, but I think this is what makes these albums so psychedelic. And it's this risk of experimentation that makes this music truely amazing. I highly recommend checking out "Volume 3" and "Markley, The Group", which is really their last record. They have five records out that are all very interesting. I'm really surprised that they are not more well known. There music stands up and surpasses many bands that have had greater success. I guess this is were Bob Markley probably helped in keeping his band underground. This band deserves more attention. To get all five albums checkout Contramao's Blog site. He has generously posted all of their records recently. Saving us all a great deal of time hunting out our psychedelic fix. I would use the Zshare download site, they don't make you wait for hours after each download. I started with their 3rd album titled "A child's Guide to Good and Evil Volume 3" and loved it. "Our Drummer Always Plays In The Nude" is probably one of my favorite songs on that record. And I hope they become a favorite band to you.

These Links are from Cotramao's Blog Site. Please go checkout the many gems he has to share. And please give a BIG THANK YOU for these.

Clem Alford "Mirror Image"

Here is some nice mellow sitar heavy instrumental music. Released back in 1974 "Mirror Image" is a must have chill out record. This album is super relaxing. Man, if you can make it to the end with out hitting your head on the ceiling, I'll be amazed. It's definitely a stony delight.

So, grab yourself some wacky tobaccy, nutmeg, banana peels, or whatever it is you crazy kids do today, and put your mind onto an old new psychedelic sound.

Mesmerizing Eye - A Musical Light Show

This is about as psychedelic as it gets. Trippy stuff my man. Created by two producers Larry Goldberg and Hank Levine with a few studio freak musicians. Its got it all baby, fuzzed out guitars, sound effects galore and lots random brain sizzle. These instrumentals run right into each other like liquid. They got a thing for phones, ringing, ringing, ring, ring. Man, this is some far out shit, man. These guys were definitely on it 40 years ago. I think it might be time to take a trip back to 1967. So,Get your favorite psychedelic and enjoy the weirdness.

Dungen Live at Grey Eagle Asheville, NC

In celebration of Dungen's new album "Tio Bitar" here is a live concert from back in 2005. This recording is straight off the soundboard. I converted the concert to 192 bit rate. If anyone would like a lossless FLAC copy let me know.

This concert was to support their prvious album "Ta Det Lungt", if you haven't had chance to hear this album, I highly suggest you do. You can buy their albums at Dungen. Please do, you wont be disappointed.

There is also a solo album that rocks as well. "Life On Earth" This album has a bunch of players. And is dripping with vintage sound.

These guys are keeping that psychedelic spirit alive.

Enjoy.

Birth Control

What can I say these guys rock. I just really got turned onto this band a few months back. My first introduction to them was Birth Control Live 1974. This record is unbelievable. To give you kind of an idea of their sound, it would be a cross between early Deep Purple, Humble Pie and a dash of Led Zeppelin. If you end up liking this record, definitely check out some of their studio albums. Rebirth and Operation are two really strong works. I find their early albums to be the best. The blog site Out Of Focus has lots albums to choose from. As well as many other great progressive rock bands. So, go over there and give them some love. You wont be disappointed. I can't thank them enough for helping my collection grow.

Note: Bilek commented that Heavy Rock Spectacular has a cleaner Version. Thanks for the heads up.

Back From Bangkok.

Well, I'm back in my home town. Had a great time in Bangkok. Wish I was still there. There is so much to see in Thailand. The people are great. I haven't smiled that much since a liquefied Grateful Dead concert. My smile muscles hurt after the first day. I can't say enough good things about the people, and their country.

I haven't had time to upload any music lately. Sorry about that. But all is not lost. I did come across some great blog sites, while in Bangkok. One of great interest is Gustavoeo. If you love The Kinks as much as I do check this site out. There are at least ten albums posted there. They are all early works. Such as Percy, Arthur, Something Else By The Kinks, Preservation Society, Kinda Kinks and more. I highly recomend "
Something Else By The Kinks" this album is great. It's not like their earlier records. They tend to vier away from their psychedelic pop side, and steer towards a more acoustical vibe. I love it.

I just want to thank Gustavoeo for taking the time to upload these gems. Make sure you pass one on.

Mary Butterworth - 1969


This is a great one. Can't stop listening to this record. They formed in back in 1968, and released this album in 1969. I don't know much about these guys. But honestly it's not as much about them is it is about the music they created. This they did with psychedelic jamming extravaganza. From what I have read this record is a collectors dream. Original vinyl has sold for as much as a grand. I can understand why people would pay it. Every song is solid, and when it its over you want to start again. The jamming is rathere fast paced which seems to speed time by. Everytime the last song come on I always surprised at the quick passing. I can't say enough about my enjoyment for this record. Give it a listen.

Baiyina (Clear Evidence) - Pat Martino 1968

In vein of the Arnie Lawerence Album I put up awhile ago. Here is a great record by Pat Martino. This is an all instrumental album. Baiyina has that Miles Davis "In A Silent Way" feel about it. The major difference is the Indian instrumentation. There is Indian percussion and droned out sitars throughout the record. With this and the mix of rock, jazz, and psychedelia you end up with a truly unique album. Not to mention the fact that Pat Martino is a freaking amazing guitar player. I highly recommend this record for those into the psychedelic jazz side. The album is very relaxing and smooth. Great for late night mellow time. Turn on your red light, or light your candles and incense. Spin one up and enjoy this masterpiece.
