Toad - Toad (1972)
The first album from Swiss hard rock group Toad is a must-have for anyone that likes early 70's rock. Guitarist Vic Vergeat just smokes, and the rest of the band are no slouches either. I've posted a couple other things by them, Rarities and Live At St. Joseph 1972 , so if you downloaded those, you know these guys were great! My rip @ 320 w/ scans.

Vic Vergeat - guitars
Cosimo Lampis - drums
Werner Froehlich - bass
Benj Jäger - vocals

Iron Claw - Dismorphophobia (1970-1973)
The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, the little birdies are going tweet-tweet - love is in the air! Why not listen to some Iron Claw? Mean and nasty underground rock made by a bunch of heavy-riffing malcontent teenage Scots, big on the Sabbath and Budgie influences, though the sound is more varied. This is great downer rock with some brilliant guitar playing, occasional use of mellotron and synthesizers. I might have heard some harmonica and sax too. This is essentially the same bunch that recorded as Antrobus. Their split album with Flying Hat Band was one of the first things I ever posted on this blog, in Sept. 2005.

Dzyan - Electric Silence (1974)
Buried under all this hard rock is Dzyan's third and final album, a genuine krautrock masterpiece! I just checked Amazon, and a used copy of this is going for 100 USD! What does that mean? I don't know. This is a brilliant, ambitious release, with music ranging from jazz fusion to space rock to eastern tinged rock, with everything blending together for a delicious psychedelic stew. Or maybe a freaky salad. Dzyan are not one of the big names in krautrock but they should be, all three of their albums are equally great. You can get their other two from the archives - I posted "Time Machine" on 9 January 2006, and "Dzyan" on 16 October 2006. Get all three!!

JPT Scare Band - Sleeping Sickness (1973-1976)
Man I can't stop with the hard rock. Well I guess I can, this is the last one this week! Containing tracks from their first two vinyl-only albums, this thing is a frenzy of pounding drums, heavy bass, over-the-top, feedback-drenched fuzzed-out guitar playing. These guys were a power trio right up there with the best bands of the early seventies, bands like Blue Cheer, Cactus, even Cream and Hendrix! One guy reviewing this at Amazon even mentioned Hairy Chapter!! If they'd had the sense to relocate from Kansas City Missouri, get a different manager maybe, these guys would be household names today.

Part 1 Part 2

Führs & Fröhling - Ammerland (1978)
OK after all this brain-burning hard rock, it's time to calm down a little. Führs & Fröhling are, of course, two-thirds of the German symphonic prog group Schicke Führs & Fröhling. This is a classical guitar player and a string synth player making music that could possibly be described as a precursor to New Age Music. With titles like "Gentle Breeze" and "Dance Of The Leaves" it's not hard to figure out what's going on. The eight tracks on this album are lush, gentle soundscapes that are very, uh, relaxing! Beautiful and romantic, that's what this is.
