      Memories of Sligo
      Cd three of the Proper box set of Irish traditional music from 1920s
      and 1930s America. It might take a bit of getting into but it is as
      vital as anything from the period.
      Nice to have another element of the future influences on rock and
      roll at this stage. This is the same era that the delta blues stuff
      was being recorded.
      Some of this may seem a tad corny, there's versioins of Foggy Dew and
      Paddy Mcginty's Goat here for e.g. but I think the cliche only
      developed later. I think this is great, but it did take vme a couple
      of listens.
      Still 4cds for around 25 euro or £12(cheaper if you're not paying for
      import)can't be sneezed at too loudly.

      In The Beginning There was Rhythm
      SoulJazz compi of Brit post-punk/New Wave dance stuff. I Also just
      got the US equivalent in the shape of their New York Noise which is
      as good.
      I really think that Soul Jazz are a label of quality, a bunch of
      music fans releasing music for other music fans. The Golden Rule as
      applied to commerce?
      This compi is as funky as f***. I love the A CErtain Ratio stuff
      which means I'll probably grab their 'Early' compi too and This
      Heat's 24 Track Loop truly is a thing of wonder, sounding way too
      early. (could've been cut 20 odd years later with different
      technology and still not sound as good)

      Genesis Nursery Cryme
      Bought this to understand what I didn't like about prog. Found out I
      liked it, hope its not catching.
      Sounds like a post-Beatles pastoral band. I can stomach it muchly, I
      just wonder if this is because this was a new line-up and they hadn't
      hit a formula yet or if there is anything else by them worth checking
      out.

      Eddie Palmieri The Sun Of Latin Music
      New York based Puerto Rican rooted pianist's early 70s progressive
      funk lp. Very danceable, at least once you get past the long ambient
      intro to Una Dia Bonita.
      I hear the Live at Sing Sing lp's pretty great too. Wish I'd known
      when I saw it.

      Tim Buckley This Dream Belongs to Me
      two sets of unreleased versions of tracks from '68 and '73 that turn
      up in very different form elsewhere.
      I've just asked Rhino Handmade if Works in Progress which overlaps
      the '68 stuff here is still available and been tild no. Damn.
      (the new Television stuff is there though)
      The 68 stuff is material that was reworked into tracks on Happy Sad,
      2 tracks here became parts of the Room 109 suite. There's also a
      different take on Song to the Siren and a slower Buzzin Fly.
      the 73 stuff is better versions of the overcomercialised stuff on
      SEfronia (including the title track) and Look at The Fool (Tim hasn't
      got a cold here)

      Birthday Party Live 81-82
      Raw, powerful. What else can i say.
      Funny that a bunch of public school boys could come out with
      something this alive innit?

      Membranes Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
      Compi of John Robb's Preston/Manchester based crew.
      They were described at the time as first lp era Meat Puppets play The
      Fall's Dragnet. I don't think they had the Pupet's virtuosity but
      otherwise that's reasonably close.
      Spike Milligan's tape Recorder is a thing of great joy.
      The cover of Voodoo Chile is so f***ed up its almost unrecognisable
      but all the greater for it.

        At the radio station we buy (yes, buy with money) every single Soul Jazz
        release we can get our hands on. I can't say we do that about any other
        label. But it doesn't matter if the compilation is on obscure funk or Studio
        One reggae, it's always done with the most care and quality.

        ... The _Sing Sing_ s are nice but terribly recorded. _Live at the University of Puerto Rico_ is his most avant-garde, & really just unbelievably flipped out

          The _Sing Sing_'s are nice but terribly recorded. _Live at the
          University of Puerto Rico_ is his most avant-garde, & really just
          unbelievably flipped out & awesome.

          Everything he did from about '70-'78 is great, Coltrane-esque,
          form-blasting Latin jazz of the highest order; _Sentido_, _Unfinished
          Masterpiece_, _Vamonos pa'l Monte_, the Harlem River Drive album--
          more unvarnished greatness than you can shake a stick at.

          "Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is
          the leaders of a country who determine the policy and it is always a
          simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a
          fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship.
          Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
          the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they
          are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism
          and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every
          country."

            I unfortunately heard a couple of months back that a couple of the
            label's releases that I'd meant to grab had gone out of print/ben
            deleted.
            I really meant to pick up that Chicano Power Latin Rock thingy.
            I take it it was all of that and more ?

              STONE BREATH
              Mostly acoustic medieval influenced folk stuff from the wyrd folk
              geezer and crew.

              CLUSTER II
              Deep space drones from the then newly 2 piece electronic band

              ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN Crocodiles
              First lp by liverpool nouveau psych types. Remastering noticeably
              improves the sound.
              Far easier to hear Will Sergeant's minimalist guitar stylings now.
              plus several extra tracks including the '81 live ep with Do It Clean
              etc

              HELDON Un Reve Sans Consequence Speciale
              Very dark Red era Crimson like instrumentals played by French
              avantgarde pre-punks

              TIM HARDIN Hang onto a Dream
              The 2cd Verve compi. I was surprised by the amount of r'n'b in the
              sound. And by his voice, I'm reminded of Roland Gift for some reason
              but can see how well he would have fitted with Can. I wonder if the
              collaboration was recorded

              HERBIE HANCOCK Crossings
              Supposedly most 'out' of the Mwandishi era stuff. The liner notes
              claim they were infecdted by the influence of Sun Ra, doesn't quite
              have the techno tropical storm elements of Sextant but it sho is fine

              TANGERINE DREAM Electronic meditation
              Sole lp by this line up. Deep space music made with cellos?

              AGITATION FREE 2nd
              Instrumental stuff by German impro psych band. This gets compared to
              the Grateful Dead which I don't think is really too exact.
              The vocals on the last couple of tracks seem to havve been where
              David Tibet got his schtick from

              JESSAMINE
              Recent drone rock psych stuff the instrumental sections are pretty
              spacey

              DUNCAN BROWNE Give me Take You
              Orchestral folkie type stuff

              ZOMBIES Odessey And Oracle
              MIGHTY BABY
              The ex Action as a Uk Grateful DEad?

              CURTIS MAYFIELD roots
              Surprisingly spacey stuff from soul legend.
              especially where the moog interacts with his guitar
              I think Hendrix picked up a few elements of his style didn't he?

              LA REVOLUTION DE EMILIANO ZAPATA
              Surprisingly garagey sounding stuff from '72 mexico.
              I find both these and the canadian Bent Wind seem to take a near brit
              invasion influence and stretch out the guitar etc a bit.
              Dashed heavy in places methinks

              RANDY HOLDEN population II
              the archetypal stoner lp?
              as the title impliers the band consists of 2 people. Randy n guitar
              amnd the ex Kak drummer.

              SCIENTIST Rids The World Of The Curse Of The Vampires
              Surprisingly early reggae/ska sound to this lp. Still really
              floorshakingly heavy

              THE FUGS 2nd lp
              I thought this band was notoriously inept musically. This sounds like
              pretty well played garagey bluesy stuff with intelligently dumb
              lyrics over it. Most reccommended. I sjhoulda had this years back.
              Shanme that the later stuff is only available in majorly expensive
              form on Rhino Handmade

              SUICIDE
              This is the blast First version of the '81 Alan Vega/Martin Rev lp
              with a different sleeve plus the DReam Baby Dream/Radiation single
              plus some '75 demos.
              I think this is awesome, I think I used to listen to the vynil much
              more than the first one.
              In '75 Vega's voice was different or is it the equipment?
              Rev seems to have much the same style but more primitive equipment

              MATCHING MOLE
              Is this the last lp that Robert Wyatt cut before the accident?
              I love the long instrumental passages & Signed Curtain has a set of
              very surreal lyrics

              KIng TUBBY dub like dirt
              compilation of osbourne Ruddock's '75 -'78 productions.
              most heavy, most good

                Saw them in 01 at the then fairly new Knitting Factory in Los Angeles...there's still nothing quite seeing a band who thinks their time is long gone come out and see a bunch of kids waving lps and how excited they get over it:)
