Chango - 1975 Chango - 1976 Honey Is Sweeter Than Blood (Great US Latin Rock - Flac)


Jamming. This is Santana IV, the culmination of heavy Latin groove rock. This album has it all, the screaming Carlos guitar licks (and what chops!), the swirling organ (do you like Hammond? Oh boy, get a doctor, you'll need it), the speed freak machismo lead singer (messed up chicks swoon for this) and of course those danceable and tranced-out rhythms (even this stiff white guy noticed). The lyrics are just what you want from this kind of album: Sex, life-in-the-ghetto, grade-school mysticism and well, sex.
Right off the bat, you're pulverized with "Fire Over Water" followed by the eight minute "Walk on Hell". Do I really need to describe these tracks? Put the environment, instrumentation, song titles and influences together and you've got an aural vision. Many of the songs are catchy too - you'll be humming them for days. "Caminando", "Solid Karma" and especially "Mira Pa 'Ca" just have KILLER melodies. But where Chango excels is in the instrumentals like the pounding "Bollo" and "Bembe" plus the beautiful "Sacapa." But the best is saved for last. The nine minute title track combines relentless energy, tuneful melodies and fiery instrumental playing. It's awe-inspiring. Careful though, as you may find yourself in a big heap afterwards. Of course the closing moments have a 15 year old's imagination-girl-moaning-in-ecstasy bit. It's stupid but somehow fits.
How this album missed the big time is a mystery to me. Being 1975 perhaps it was too late for the early Santana sound, but not too many groups went down this road. I'm guessing that ABC records, not known for their marketing muscle, had no idea how to promote it. There are few albums ever that contains this kind of energy and instrumental virtuosity and combines that with a strong melodic sense. A true masterpiece and a really undiscovered gem. Fortunately the Akarma record company has done us all a favor by releasing this on CD and an exact gatefold LP.
For Chango's second album, Honey is Sweeter Than Blood apparently lead singer Pepe Gomez got too big for his britches and tossed all the members except one, changed labels to Mercury and went soul-pop. The music isn't even recognizable for those who love the first album and is a huge disappointment. For Latin Soul music, it's not bad but not exactly what I'd hoped for. I seriously doubt anyone will reissue this and it doesn't need to be. Just go straight for the first album and never look back. " (From Gnosis - progarchives.com)

Years ago my buddy Jeff played for me a track from the first Chango album which I really enjoyed and added these guys to my wish list.   A few weeks back at a garage sale I found their second album for a buck !
....and what an excellent discovery this one is too !
 I think their first is really the best of the two that I have heard but in no way is this an album that you should pass on either.   I would say this one is more rock than latin and quite different than their debut album. Best way i can describe this album is try to imagine "Camel" meets "Santana" with a bit of perhaps a dash of "Malo". 
 Apparently the lead singer (Pepe Gomez) for this second album replaced all but one of the band members to record this album.....so no wonder the vibe and feel is so different from the first album.  There are some outstanding latin groove rock moments on this album! (By James Unger)

Fragile - Fragile - (1976 - Heavy Twin Guitars Rock From Netherlands - Flac)



Fragile was an obscure band that played a heavy, twin guitar rock. They choose this name as a tribute to the band Yes, who had released an album by the same name. The music of Fragile is not unlike Cargo or Wishbone Ash. The band saw the light around 1972. They recorded an album in 1974 but it was not released until 1976. After the album was released their rehearsal location, including their equipment, was burnt down. This didn't make them stop performing, but eventually they did disband the band due to lack of income. In 2004 their album was released on cd.
.
Remastered reissue on CD of the one and only album by Dutch 70's psych/rural band consisting mainly of Mollucans who play guitar like crazy, as we know. On one side long track they expose a tapestry of excellent guitar fuzzing. One of the most wanted albums from Holland, and an absolute ultra rarity, originally made as a private pressing for friends, relatives, etc.(Freak Emporium)

Tracks Listing
01. "Sweet Introspect" 5:17
02. "Caroline Funk" 3:56

Man - All's Well That Ends Well (1977 uk psych prog rock - flac)


This would have been the final Man album were it not for the fact that, after a few years off, they got back together again. In 1976, the band decided to split and they decided to round things off with a few nights at the Round House in London which was pretty much their home venue despite their Welsh origins.
Those who had the good fortune to see the shows commented that the band were going out at the top. The rest of us are fortunate that, according to their contract, the band owed the record company one more album so we got this show.

Perhaps the enmity within the band drove them to this performance or perhaps the break up put them into some sort of last day of term mood. I think that you can hear a little of both of these in Deke Leonard's vocals. Especially on "Hard Way to Live."

The twin guitars of Leonard and Jones are of course a feature of the band's music but on this album you can hear that they can do the same thing with their voices as well.

The album is a mix of short snappy songs and the longer tracks that provide a platform for the band's extended guitar jams. I think that the mix between the two is just right on this album. We get some great short snappy tracks such as "Romain" and "Hard Way to Live" to go with the longer material. Of the latter, I really like the version of "Spunk Rock" here. Perhaps not the best but certainly a good performance.

This album would make a good introduction to the band. It displays a range of their musical styles and you certainly get to hear their vocals at their best too.(By John Peter O'connor's) 

Tracklist
01."Let the Good Times Roll" (Theard, Moore) – 3:00
02."The Welsh Connection" (Jones, Ryan) – 7:59

Rockets With Jim McCarty - (Great Us Rock - Live Cleveland 79 - Poughkeepsie 80 - Flac)


The Rockets were formed in 1972 by former Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels members Johnny "Bee" Bandajek and Jim McCarty. Vocals and drums were handled by Bandajek, McCarty was on lead guitar, John Fraga was on bass and Marc Marcano was on keyboards. Johnny Bee was the driving force and primary songwriter for the Rockets.
In the early days, The Rockets paid their dues playing gigs at venues such as, The Rainbow Room in Detroit, The People's Ballroom in Ann Arbor, and The Rock 'N Roll Farm in Wayne, Michigan.
The band took on a new sound in 1976 when David Gilbert was brought in to take over vocals from Johnny Bee and Donnie Backus took over on keyboards. Gilbert had fronted several bands and was the lead singer for Ted Nugent and The Amboy Dukes in 1971, touring with them for a year and a half before forming Shadow which led to a record deal with RSO.
The Rockets made five studio albums produced several minor hits including a rocking rendition of Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well".
Always a popular group in Detroit, and Michigan, The Rockets had gotten some attention outside of the state, but never really got the big break to become a true national act. The first album, Love Transfusion, was released in 1977. It failed to produce any hits. The 1979 self-titled release featured the hits, "Oh Well" and "Turn Up The Radio". This record also featured on bass, David Hood, one of the "Swampers" from the famous Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Alabama. Muscle Shoals was mentioned in Lynyrd Skynyrd's southern rock anthem "Sweet Home Alabama". Also, this Rockets album was dedicated to Skynyrd members Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines and Cassie Gaines, who all perished in Skynyrd's infamous 1977 plane crash. The third attempt came (with the addition of a new bass player, Dan Keylon) in 1980 with "No Ballads", "Desire" was a popular tune from this album. Next came the Back Talk album in '81 (with another new bass player, Bobby Haralson) and then finally Rocket Roll in 1982. "Rollin' By The Record Machine" from this release was the last hit for the band. The final release, Live Rockets, was recorded on New Year's Eve 1982 at the Royal Oak Music Theatre near Detroit.

John The Revelator – Wild Blues (1970 - Great Blues From Netherland Influenced By Fleetwood Mac - flac)


Back in 1966 when Eric Clapton delivered his heavily overdriven wailing blues licks on the “Beano” 
album with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, the guitar world was completely shaken up. Legend has it that Eric put his hand flat on the controls of his Marshall combo, moved his hand to the right, setting all controls full power in the process.
Future Revelator singer and bassman Tom Huissen lived in London at the time that the blues scene triggered by Clapton’s trademark guitar work exploded.He became pals with Peter Green, Eric’s successor in the Bluesbreakers, and witnessed the first rehearsals of Pete’s then new band Fleetwood Mac.
 Immediately after returning in Holland Tom started to form a blues band modelled after Fleetwood Mac.Finding the right guys for the job was not too hard and the band started to rehearse with cheap guitars, old tube driven radios for amplifiers and a tyre lever for playing bottleneck guitar.
Early in 1969 the band adopted the name “John the Revelator” after the A Capella blues traditional by the great Son House.John the Revelator took off immediately and extensively started gigging the Dutch and European blues circuits that were thriving at the time.
After winning the prestigious Loosdrecht Jazz contest in 1970 record label Decca offered the band a recording contract resulting in the first album Wild Blues.This highly collectable record was re-released on CD in 2003.

Eric Burdon & Tovarich - Live At The Whisky A GoGo - October 1971 (Flac)


"Eric Burdon remains a curiously compelling live performer. His blues growl has not been tamed, nor has his musical integrity or his acute sense of showmanship. He remains ... one of rock's most worthy sons"
Enjoy !!!
Eric Burdon, the former Animals frontman in 1971, created a very short-lived band called Tovarich, and played with the band in October 11, 1971 at the famous Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles.
: Great gig with fantastic musicians (George Suranovich & John Sterling particularly) concert was a shame that this lineup of the band only existed for a few months, but luck is that it remained a relatively good quality recording for posterity.

George then played briefly with the Blues Image before joining the Eric Burdon Band. While working on the album "Guilty", George met John Sterling (guitar) and Kim Kesterson (bass). Along with Kevin Kelly (keyboards), they formed Tovarich (Russian for "Comrades"). Besides backing Burdon and blues/jazz vocalist Jimmy Witherspoon, they became a popular attraction on the L.A. club circuit and recorded an album of their own (unreleased). They later recorded a second album with Burdon, "Stop!", as well as "Black & White Blues" by Burdon and Witherspoon. That album, released only in Europe, included George's composition "Wicked Wicked Man"(which was recently resurrected by Burdon as the title track of one of his own albums). Tovarich also provided the soundtrack to the movie "Revenge of the Cheerleaders".(By Adamus67)

Mick Abrahams - Mick's Back (1996 Great Uk Rock Blues - Flac)


It's a funny thing about Mick Abrahams -- he and his one-time Jethro Tull bandmate Ian Anderson are both "trapped" in time warps, but of very differing kinds: Anderson in a folky art rock musical loop and Abrahams in a '60s-style electric blues cycle, with the echoes of Chess Records' roster and also Albert King et al. rippling through his work. And at this late date, Abrahams may be the one with slightly more elbow room. The opening track on Mick's Back, Percy Mayfield's "The River's Invitation," could almost pass for an early-'60s Howlin' Wolf track, and the rest doesn't try to be much more advanced, nor does it have to be -- "Cold Women With Warm Hearts" offers Abrahams in his own "voice," and it all sounds very close to the kind of rootsy blues that Alexis Korner and Blues Incorporated used to do, with some of the virtuosity of the Graham Bond Organisation in there as well. The electric guitar is, of course, very prominently featured throughout, and there are saxes and even a little brass, but they're sufficiently subdued to keep the focus on Abrahams' playing where it belongs. His singing is also expressive, a powerful, raspy instrument in its own right -- coupled with the rippling instrumental breaks on songs like "Time to Love" and the mixed acoustic/electric textures of "Leaving Home Blues," the CD justifies itself as a still very credible version of '60s British blues, which will appeal to anyone who loved early Alexis Korner, Cyril Davies, Graham Bond, or the first two Cream albums.(By Bruce Eder)

Hookfoot - Live In Memphis USA 1972 (Uk great blend of rock, soul & blues - 1990 edition - flac)


Hookfoot was a quintet formed at the end of the '60s as a recording unit by a half-dozen session players associated with Dick James' publishing and later with his DJM Records label. They never made much of an impression on the charts, despite their work being licensed to A&M Records, through which they released four LPs in the U.S.A. Ian Duck (vocals, harmonica), Dave Glover (bass), Roger Pope (drums, vocals), and Caleb Quaye (guitar, vocals) were the original lineup, with Bob Kulick (guitar, vocals) coming in alongside Quaye, and Fred Gandy joining on bass later.(Bruce Eder)

Does anyone remember how good this group was besides me? This is the fourth release (after Hookfoot, Good Times A Comin, Communication, and Roaring),that I can find from one of the most underated groups from England in the early 70's;Hookfoot. Eight live tracks(5 from the various studio releases) that show what a great band these guys were! A talented guitar band led by Caleb Quaye, and Ian Duck, this four piece band with Roger Pope and Dave Glover/Freddy Gandy could play it all; loud and funky rock n'roll,electric or acoustic blues, combined with great lyrics and superb musicianship. If you can find this disc check it out, because this may be the only Hookfoot music you'll be able to listen to on CD anytime soon. It's a decent recording(considering the time it was made),and shows a "live" sound most fans like me never got to hear. See if you agree with me, that these guys played great music that sounded like nothing else from England that was being played in 1972- it'll make you feel young again!!(By wwwperkmp)

Boomerang - Boomerang (1971 Great Us Psychedelic Heavy Rock - Flac)


An hard rock group formed by Mark Stein after Vanilla Fudge. If you like "Rock Music" you WILL love Boomerang's self titled one and only album. Forget the fact that this was recorded 31 years ago, like any great music this is timeless!
You might recognize Mark Stein's name from the Vanilla Fudge. Gone are the complex arrangements and psychedelic effects that were a trade mark of the Fudge. But Stein's distinctive vocals and his awesome Hammond B3 organ sounds are still here.
Guitarist Richard Rameriz was amazingly only 16 years old when this album was recorded. However he plays like a veteran of many years and studio sessions.
"Juke It", "Hard Times", "Mockingbird", "Cynthia Fever" and "The Peddler" are solid rockers that will stick with you. "Fisherman" is a lesson on greed. The ballad "Brother's Comin' Home" is a tribute to returning war veterans, something that was rare in that time of our history.
The only drawback to this album is there is not enough of it! Only 7 tunes...but what tunes they are. This album is a classic in the progressive rock history.(By Ray Hollingsworth)

"Step inside love" is so fine romantic lyrical song, "No Resurrection" same and also "Heart full of Soul", "I believe to my Soul", so fine blues rock song and last song is such a big highlight.
