Give them all a hand ( copycats )


Popol Vuh- 1978
Vampiric excellence from the always excellent PV-- the score for the Werner Herzog version of Nosferatu with Klaus Kinski as the beast. One of my fav records.

Harvey " the Snake" Mandel was a killer kooky guitarist with Canned Heat and John Mayall and made this one off in 1968- instrumental and a pretty nice chiller.

The Flame

A tasty slice of South African Abbey Road-ism courtesy of the Beach Boys' Brother records.
1970 was the year- This one fell off the planet

Oh for the love of the Dragon

Golden summer sap from deep in the lost river. Dragon from New Zealand did their duty with the cheese du jour 70's soft rock bubble pop. They were junked out and wrote songs about underage girls and island life. This is a greatest hits of their 70's material. Their 80's output burns my ears in a bad way but this stuff burns my ears in the best way possible.

Help Yourself

1st Help Yourself record- 1971- a delicious little nugget of English Pub Rock for those of you into Buffalo Springfield /CSNY/Neil Young/etc.---- track #1 is an anomaly and should be forgotten-- this is the case on their other records as well, 1 song just don't fit-- very strange-- enjoy

It was........

It was a mad dream born of the sea's roar where the precious elements of life were passed on through endlessly repeating chains. From the floating bundles of rushes to the liners to port, the rivers created the cities. Rivers are the agency of nature that more than any other makes the earth usable by man. So why, in this thick yellow night, do its whispers so paralyze thee?

Troostite is a Band (kinda)

Don't go breakin my heart

Effective demonstration starts with setting a tone.
Protect with a gallantry that subsumes rendition and alliance

Radiate cogency

Adventure of the Three

The Miasmists

Only a stone would understand......

Michael Gately did lotso work with others but seems particularly and almost inexplicably Weerdzio on this solo trip. Al Kooper produces. A buried favorite.

Crushing Arbors

Technically exquisite--lasting inventions don't make for friends or enemies for a day or for the years. Changeless efficiency knows few tests. The changing beast offers a gesture of inadequacy as an act of love when facing the abyss.
