Pentacle [France] --- 1975 - La Clef Des Songes -- [FGBG 4131.AR]


Another one off band, Pentacle was formed in 1971 in Belfort, France. Their one album "La Clef des Songes" was released in 1975, and was produced by Ange's Christian Decamps. The lineup consisted of Claude Mentrier on keyboards, Michael Roy on Drums, Richard Tribier on bass and acoustic guitar, and Gerald Reuz on guitars and lead vocals. The music is described as elegant, avoiding the bombast of some of their contemporaries. There is also a spacey component. That does not necessarily mean completely soft.
The vocals are emotional, and there are bits of guitar lashing. Passages evoke early King Crimson, and Moody Blues. There are the trademark symphonic tempo shifts, but complexity is not a hallmark. The album was re-released by Musea, and includes three live bonus tracks.

Pan & Regaliz [Spain] --- 1971 - Pan & Regaliz -- [WCD004]

Четверг, 20 Ноября 2008 г. 07:14 + в цитатник

 

Pan & Regaliz [Spain] --- 1971 - Pan & Regaliz -- [WCD004]
One of the earliest Spanish rock group to have released an album. THEY DID IT BECAUSE THEY DID NOT KNOW IT WAS POSSIBLE, says the booklet, and they got a good point. Although the Franco was on its last years, the dictator was still keeping a firm grip on the country, large overtures were being made for European tourism, to spend its money, the regime was not as incredibly tight as it once was, which meant that some of those rebel groups were able to release rock records by squeaking through the nets. Among the other early groups were SMASH (with Gualberto Garcia of Gualberto fame), OM (jazz-rock), MUSICA DISPERSA later SISA (folk-rock), MAQUINA (killer prog RnR) and TAPIMAN (with Max Sunyer, future ICEBERG).
This band is Guillermo Paris’s project - these guys are from the suburbs of Barcelona and had been in part of a folk group Els Mussols, before changing their names to Aqua De Regaliz, under which they released some singles and again (along with drummer) just prior to recording their sole album again to Pan & Regaliz). The least we can say is that the group members loved JETHRO TULL’s debut album, This Was and somehow CREAM was not far from it either. The group has more than one link with cross-town rivals / friends MAQUINA, playing many gigs together, sharing members and even at first sharing the same label. But further changes (and bringing ex-Tapiman members) would soon have the best of P & R.
I was absolutely taken by surprise by this album. Pan & Regaliz was a Spanish proto-prog / psych band that released this album, I Can Fly in 1971, smack during the Franco regime (I've seen some sources say the album is just entitled Pan y Regaliz). A band must have had really big balls to play music like this in Franco-era Spain, but it wouldn't have been such a problem if this was Germany or Great Britain. I was expecting perhaps a "government approved" vibe throughout the whole album like I do with many of those communist-era Eastern European albums (from Poland, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia, countries that had prog rock potential were it not for the governments). But that's not what I got. What I got was top quality prog / psych with a great vibe that makes you think it came out of Great Britain or Germany. They hailed from Barcelona, home to Antoni Gaudi and Pablo Picasso.

Murphy Blend [Germany] --- 1970 - First Loss -- [11005-2]

Murphy Blend [Germany] --- 1970 - First Loss -- [11005-2]


Murphy Blend were responsible for one of the best albums released on Polydor's legendary Kuckuck label. They were a quintet comprising Wolf-Rodiger Uhlig (organ, cembalo, grand piano, vocals), Wolfgang Rumler (guitar, vocals), Andreas Scholz (bass) and Achim Schmidt (drums). "First Loss" was recorded in Union Studio, Munich, during October - December 1970, produced by Jonas Porst (the manager of Ihre Kinder!) and engineered by Thomas Klemt.
Murphy Blend revealed a fine blend in which Uhlig utilised his keyboards to incorporate classical themes into their heavy progressive music. He had studied classical music for three years in Berlin. The songs were melodic, textured by heavy guitar and organ riffs. The album contained six proper tracks (mostly written by Uhlig) and the shortest German song of all time: the 3/10 of a second long "Happiness"! It's impossible to name highlights as all material is truly great! Sadly, Murphy Blend disbanded soon after recording this album. Andreas Scholz went on the heavy progressive Blackwater Park in 1971. Wolf-Rudiger Uhlig guested on Frumpy's third album "By The Way" in 1972.

Grobschnitt [Germany] --- 1975 - Jumbo -- [SPV 49832 CD]


[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


Formed in 1970 the band existed till 1989, GROBSCHNITT (which translates to ROUGH CUT) was the best German band from the mid-Seventies (ELOY were then in a more PINK FLOYD... and ambient style). All of the members of the band adopted pseudonyms, namely "Eroc", "Mist", "Wildschwein", "Lupo" and "Popo". The band was created by Joachim "Eroc" Ehrig (drums, percussion), Stefan "Wildschwein" Daneliak (guitars & vocals), and Gerd-Otto "Lupo" Kuhn (guitar, vocals). This nucleus was later completed by Wolgang "Popo" Jager (bass) and Volker "Mist" Kahrs (keyboards, Mellotron, synthesizers). They were best known as a clone of YES (symphonic progressive group), but they also explored other progressive rock styles (either psychedelic prog or more cohesive "Krautrock" with some stunning instrumental passages that will be familiar to anyone into the likes of MAN, AMON DUUL II, WISHBONE ASH and many similar bands). Their sound was characterized by sometimes long suites allowing ambitious composition developments, with intermingled themes, rhythms, climates changes and symphonic passages. A VERY COMPELLING BRAND OF MUSICAL MOODS: haunting melodies, funny voices (by Eroc), wonderful guitar work, great synthesizer sounds, strange drumming/effects man, and sophisticated arrangements. This eclectic German band became one of the most popular live acts in German history.

Jody Grind [UK] --- 1969 - One Step On -- [ADASD 07204]


[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


Jody Grind's debut album was early progressive rock with a somewhat jazzier orientation than most such bands,
though the playing was a good sight more impressive than the singing and songwriting.
There's a fairly grim tone to the original material, all (save a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black")
written by Tim Hinkley and Ivan Zagni, who wrench extended heavy blues-jazzy solos out of their organ and guitar respectively.
The showcase is an eighteen-minute, four-part suite, "One Step On," that like many long rock tracks of the time go on for
way too long, incorporating horn fanfares, lurching tempos, and operatic vocals (and, yes, a drum solo).
Hinkley's skilled Hammond organ work -- shown to best advantage on "Little Message" and the most appealing song on the album,
"Night Today" -- stands up well to the keyboards of well-known early prog-rockers like Keith Emerson, Vincent Crane
(of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown), and Brian Auger.
But he doesn't have material or singers on the same level as any of those more celebrated musicians did,
nor did he establish as strikingly identifiable an instrumental style.


Tracks:


1. One Step On (18:47)
- a. In My Mind
- b. Nothing At All
- c. Interaction
- d. Paint It Black

Limbus 4 [Germany] --- 1970 - Mandalas -- [OHR 70018-2]

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER

As their previous effort, "Mandalas" is a very difficult but passionate listening, only built on synthesis harmonies,
following almost absent, invisible melodic lines and making a large part to micro silence and sound environnement. "
Kundalini" is a fine exemple of cloudy experimental improvisations dominated by strange musical inflexions written for
acoustic instruments (flute, piano, cello...) , the movement between the instruments is inexact, often syncopated,
giving a paranoiac dimension to the ensemble (the unclear "Heiku" with its embedded virtual lines). "Dhyana"
is an other singular instrumental, featuring long monotonous organic chords with strange, enigmatic wind instruments
and droning voices...an allusion to a "trip" , producing hallucinatory effects on the consciousness.
Silence / Time / Eternity are the real musical dimensions of this "cosmic" music. Not really beautiful but
it reveals quite evocative states of mind. Recommended for those who like the most radical, agitated parts of
krautrock experimentations (Zweistein, Anima...)"

Grapefruit [UK] --- 1969 - Deep Water -- [REP 5053]

Grapefruit --- 1969 - Deep Water -- [REP 5053]


[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


Grapefruit's second and last album was a mighty sour disappointment after the tentative but rich promise of their debut.
For whatever reason, their previous course -- as a lighter variation of the British pop-psych being done
by the Beatles -- had been totally discarded. Out the window too went the multi-textured harmonies and orchestral
arrangements responsible for so much of whatever charm the group could muster. In their place was a very routine band,
playing very average harder rocking material mixing soul, pop, blues, and country. On "Can't Find Me," for instance,
they seem to be trying to be a pop-slanted version of the Band (not a strategy bound to succeed in the hands of anyone),
while "The Right Direction" is rustic country-rock with banjo. "Thunder and Lightning," "Come Down to the Station,"
and "A Dizzy Day" are all so-so boogie-rock numbers. Only on "Time to Leave" (which sounds just a bit like Badfinger)
and "Blues in Your Head" do even traces of their early harmony pop arise, and even so they aren't very good ones.
Not recommended, even if you enjoy the first Grapefruit album and are convinced that the follow-up might have at
least something to offer. The CD reissue on Repertoire adds both sides of their 1971 single "Sha--Sha"/"Universal Party,"
which George Alexander recorded with help from George Young and Harry Vanda, and which unsurprisingly sounds similar to the
Easybeats' final recordings in its lumpy harmony pop/rock.

Grapefruit [UK] --- 1968 - Around Grapefruit -- [REP 5044]


Like the fruit after it was named, Grapefruit's debut album was at times too sweet, but was on the whole a promising and
worthy effort. Devoted almost wholly to songs written by leader George Alexander, the record featured tuneful and upbeat
midtempo late-'60s British rock with good harmonies, creative ornate arrangements, and a very slight and very sunny
psychedelic tinge. Certainly similarities to the Paul McCartney-penned tracks from the Beatles' own psych pop era are evident,
and if George Alexander's songs weren't in nearly the same league as McCartney's, well,
no one working the style was in McCartney's league. Grapefruit were at their best on the occasional songs in which they
reached into slightly darker and more melancholy territory, particularly when they made creative use of strings, organ,
Baroque keyboards, and Mellotron, as on "This Little Man" and "Dear Delilah" and the instrumental "Theme for Twiggy."
The latter tune sounds like something that could have been killer had words been devised; as it is, it seems like something
that wasn't quite seen through to completion. There's also the Four Seasons cover "C'mon Marianne," which,
although it wasn't one of their better tracks, was (along with "Dear Delilah") one of their two small U.K. hits.


[This edition contains 12 bonus tracks (mainly single versions of album tracks), essentially doubling the length of the
original album.]

Road [USA] --- 1972 - Road -- [9701]


[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


Road was sort of a B-list supergroup, pairing Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix Experience) with guitarist Rod Richards
(formerly of Rare Earth) and drummer Leslie Sampson. The group's self-titled album ends up being little more than warmed-up
post-Hendrix hard rock, heavy on the wah pedal. Richards actually turns in some fine, if not particularly original,
performances on guitar, and Redding proves he couldn't write good songs if his career depended on it (clearly "She's So Fine"
and "Little Miss Strange" were his high points). In true '70s hard rock form, the album drags a bit on side
two during the obligatory drum solo on "Friends" and especially during Redding's ham-fisted bass "solo" on the unnecessarily
epic "Road." Almost redeemed by Richards' guitar work, check this out only if you have a serious jones for '70s hard rock
and/or wah-wah excess.

Kangaroo [USA] --- 1968 - Kangaroo -- [FOCD 2027]

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER

There are few other albums of the late '60s besides Kangaroo's sole, self-titled affair on which so much talent is evident,
but so little coheres into satisfying results. Part of the problem is that, as on so many obscure long-players of the age,
there's such a salad of non-complementary styles, running the gamut from redneck country-rock ("Frog Giggin'," "Happy Man")
and sunshine pop-spotted psychedelia ("Such a Long, Long Time") to strident folk-rock ("Daydream Stallion") and avowedly
sub-Beatlesque sounds ("Happy Man," "Make Some Room in Your Life"). There are also gratuitous insertions of backwards guitars,
San Francisco-type acid rock riffing, soul vocal posturing, descendants-of-Mamas & the Papas male-female backup harmonies,
and a silly monologue about killing frogs and having sex at the same time. The biggest flaw, however,
is the substandard songwriting, which has sky-high ambitions but confused construction and execution.
That's not to say there aren't good things about the record, particularly the vibrato folk-rock vocals of Barbara Keith.
They're reminiscent to varying degrees of Melanie, Judy Collins, and Buffy Sainte-Marie,
though her own personality comes through, as showcased to best effect on the record's highlight,
the strident yet haunting folk-rock-psych outing "Daydream Stallion." Unfortunately,
that's the only Keith-penned song on the album, which would have been far better had she written and sung lead on more
of the material or, to be cruel, written and sung lead on most or all of it. The other three bandmembers not only
come up with nothing to match "Daydream Stallion" their styles don't even jell well with one another, N.D.
Smart II's mediocre countrified numbers sticking out like a sore thumb in the midst of this crossfire of late-'60s rock stews.
Fans of Barbara Keith should be aware both that this record is not similar to the ones she would subsequently make during her
long career, and that her contributions are usually confined to backup harmonies.
It's only when she took the lead vocal as she did on "Daydream Stallion,"
the slightly less impressive "The Only Thing I Had," and her wordless scatting on the opening jazzy section
of "I Never Tell Me Twice" that Kangaroo showed any glimmer of something special

Eloy [Germany] --- 1998 - Ocean 2.The Answer -- [GUN 167]

Вторник, 04 Ноября 2008 г. 07:19 + в цитатник

 

Eloy [Germany]  --- 1998 - Ocean 2.The Answer -- [GUN 167]

 

Artist: Eloy
Album: Ocean 2 - The Answer
Year: 1998
Style: Progressive Rock
Genre: Space-Kraut

Taking their name from the "Eloi", the futuristic race of people in H.G. Wells' The Time Machine,
ELOY was initially formed in 1969 in Germany. Inspired by THE SHADOWS and THE BEATLES,
they became one of the major bands in the progressive rock scene highly influenced by the space rock of PINK FLOYD.
They started off in Germany as a hard rock band with a political bent, but soon drifted into a spacier progressive rock sound.
They have had a number of turnovers, with a major split in the 1980s that resulted in a move into more of a mainstream
direction. Based mainly on founder Frank BORNEMANN's guitar solos, their music evolved to include more synthesizers and choirs.

They produced many albums between 1971 and 1998 with different line-ups.
Their best period is the mid to late-70's with the trippier space-rock of "Inside" and "Floating"
(with Manfred WIECZORKE later of JANE). "Dawn" is actually one of the better of the symphonic-era ELOY albums,
perhaps even the best. "Ocean" is a concept album about Atlantis, and one of the pillar albums of the German symphonic scene,
and certainly worth checking out. They followed up with "Silent Cries and Mighty Echoes",
the year later to even greater success. During 1993-1994, ELOY released three best of collections and it wasn't until 1994
with the release of "The Tides Return Forever", that they recorded and toured again is released and the band reappeared
live on stage for several successful shows in Germany. Their last album "Ocean 2",
released in 1998, was a surprising come back of a progressive rock band, which stopped recently their stage-appearances.

ALUSA FALLAX is another band from the fruitful italian scene,

mellotron and layers of acoustic guitar passages, on the best LOCANDA DELLE FATE style, although with darker passages.

Ihre Kinder [Germany] --- 1971 - Werdohl -- [11013-2]

 

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


IHRE KINDER can be placed at the roots of the so-called "Krautrock".
As the first rock band at all they produced in their mother-tongue German and published five main albums between 1969 and 1972.
The core of IHRE KINDER were the keyboarder and singer Sonny Hennig, the guitarist Ernst Schultz and the producer Jonas Porst.
Their music combined influences from the American protest song (Bob Dylan), white blues music from
England and - in a cautious way - the typical German electronic rock music of the early 70's to a progressive und unique mixture.
Their most impressive songs are about political topics like nuclear armament ("Toter Soldat") or social problems like drugs
("Weisser Schnee, Schwarze Nacht"). At their early time the phrase "progressive" was yet to be born. Lacking other definitions they
were elected the best German "Blues band" by the readers of "Express" in 1970.
Key albums were "Leere Hande" (1970) - also published in the UK as "Empty Hands" - "2375 004" (1970) -
also known as "Jeanscover" - and "Werdohl" (1971), by which Ernst Schultz had substituted Jonas Porst as producer.

Aerovons [USA] --- 1969 - Resurrection -- [RPM 261]

 

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


The dozen songs that would have been on the Aerovons' album had it come out (though a couple of the songs did come out on a 1969 single) form the core of this release, Resurrection,the U.K. bonus edition also tacks on four bonus tracks. The Aerovons' unusual story -- a band from the American Midwest recording in Abbey Road in 1969, led and produced by their 17-year-old singer-songwriter -- might be the main reason there was interest in excavating these sessions, but this CD is not a mere curio. It's quite respectable late-'60s Beatles-style pop/rock, if a little green around the edges and pretty derivative. In fact, in a couple of spots it's downright imitative, with "Say Georgia" taking licks from "Oh! Darling," and "Resurrection" itself lifting from "Across the Universe." (Neither of those songs had yet been released by the Beatles at the time of the sessions, but the group heard them by virtue of working in Abbey Road.) Fortunately, those are the only blatant cops, though Beatles comparisons abound throughout, particularly in the Paul McCartney-esque piano-playing. Songs like "With Her" and "The Years" recall the acoustic outings of both John Lennon and Paul McCartney on The White Album, while "Bessie Goodheart" uses McCartney's more vaudevillian Sgt. Pepper-era outings as an obvious launching pad, and "Something of Yours" brings to mind "Michelle." To this list you could also add the very Lennon-esque echo on the vocal of "The Children." The Aerovons leaned more toward wistful and sadness-tinged moods than the Beatles did, though. One of the best tracks, "World of You," brings out that quality very well, recalling the better late-'60s orchestrated Bee Gees opuses. The bonus tracks include both sides of a non-LP 1969 single ("The Train," their poppiest number, which echoes both the Hollies and the Bee Gees), the outtake "Here" (very much like McCartney's piano ballads), and a demo of "World of You."

Possessed [UK] --- 1971 - Exploration -- [RARCD002]

 

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


This is the story of a band whose tragic legacy could never have been predicted. Possessed were born out the thriving underground West Midlands Rock & Blues scene of the mid to late 60s. This was a scene in which band- leader, Vernon Pereira, had been a key figure.The band were formed in late 1969 when Vernon teamed up (after a spell playing next to Robert Plant in The Band Of Joy) with Mick Reeves, who had been playing in (amongst other bands) Sugarstack with Al Atkins. This was the band that would eventually evolve into being the first incarnation of Judas Priest. Exploration was originally intended for releases in 1971. Due to various reasons the album never saw the light of day.The band were finally on the verge of signing a major deal, when tragedy struck. Whilst returning home from a gig in 1976, the bands van drove into a stationary petrol tanker, taking the lives of three band members. This wouldnt have sounded out of place on Vertigo in 1971. On a heavy dark prog vibe like Necromandus and Black Widow.

"AVIARY were often described as the greatest pomp rock band of the 70's. Grandiose, pompous and bombastic, the unique songwriting talent of Brad Love and the musical skills he and his four fellow band members bring to this album, make it sill, some twenty years later, a very special piece of music. This album was released in the late 70's and fans of early KANSAS / STYX mixed with the perfect vocal harmonies of QUEEN and even the BEATLES. Fans of late 70's / early 80's Pomp, you should definitely try this album. You won't be disappointed. Recommended!"

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER

 

Soft and delicate, yet melodic, confident and self-assured,
this Deram act's only album resides somewhere between period UK country rock (Cochise, Quicksand, Southern Comfort, Quiver)
and singer-songwriterdom (Mike Maran, Pete Atkin, Tony Hazzard) with plenty of light and shade thrown in from both sides.
Featuring crиme de la creme of Britain's studio scene and aided by a sympathetic and lush production, this band manages to
produce twelve superbly orchestrated tracks full of energy, effervescence, vigour, character, rich flavour and originality.
It also features no less than three lead vocalists and - count them! - five guitarists, including none other than
Southern Comfort's Gordon Huntley.
Was Eric Bell the same guy who played in Thin Lizzy, on Mk I line-up's biggest hits, "Whiskey In The Jar" and "The Rocker"?
Clem Cattini is featured in our other PICKs: Hungry Wolf, Ugly Custard, John Schroeder and Fancy.
Jimmy Hastings, of course, needs no introduction, being a long-standing member of Canterbury prog legend Caravan.
Grout-Smith designed the cover art for this album."

Yesterday's Children [USA] --- 1969 - Yesterday's Children -- [AK 179]

[APE --- IMAGE] - CUE,LOG,COVER


Rather unimpressive guitar driven hard rock. Not much in the way or progressive sounds or psychedelia, though the guitar work is pretty solid.

Re-issue of the Connecticut hard rock groups sole LP originally released on Map City in 1969. Starting out as an amphetamine garage fuzz punk combo - the group was featured on the Psychedelic Unknowns compilation with one side of their 1966 single on Parrot. Not to be confused with the Chicago area punk group of the same name who issued one single and who appears on the Pebbles box set. The group progressed from the fuzzed up garage sound of their debut single to a more straightforward hard rock sound by the time they cut this, their sole album.
