Here you go. Real life is intruding again, and I need to travel to Arizona (HOT!) and Illinois (not so bad) later this week, so probably no posts for a couple weeks. Catch up on the archives, some real good stuff back there.

ZABU - My Coffin's Ready (1972)
Lucien Zabuski, also known as ZABU, was the original singer for Magma, before they made their first recording, and on his first solo album all his Magma buddies were on hand, including Christian Vander on a few tracks. The music, though, is not Zeuhl, it sounds more like a lite version of Captain Beefheart, kind of an eccentric bluesy psych. Great vocals and the playing is brilliant by all - these were after all the best rock musicians in France! I scanned the booklet which has a neat history of all Christian Vander's groups.

My rip @ 320 w/scans


Love - The Last Wall Of The Castle
Don't have enough love in your life? Well don't look at me! Download this bootleg. This is one of those boots that might be for fanatics only - I mean who needs to hear 7 piss-takes of the same song? On the other hand this is a cool glimpse of a band at work in the studio, and there are some real gems for fans on this.

Studio sessions in excellent quality

2-8. Seven & Seven Is
9. And More
10. Can't Explain

Tracks 22-23: Dick Clark's American Bandstand, 1966

Part 1 Part 2

Various Artists - Brain Festival Essen II (1978)
A month ago I posted the Brain Festival album from 1977, and this is the same deal - a first-class vinyl rip of a double album, featuring live performances by artists on Germany's Brain label.

01 Gate - Heart - 4:30
02 Gate - Herrenwies - 4:48
03 Führs & Fröhling - Every Land Tells A Story - 4:00
04 Message - World Keeps On Turning - 6:54
05 Release Music Orchestra - New Day/Meadow - 9:42
06 Novalis - Astralis - 9:23
07 To Be - Drei In Drei - 4:14
08 To Be - Samba Für Heino Reher - 8:16
09 Schicke Führs & Fröhling - Explorer/Wizard - 10:17
10 Blonker - Mädchen - 4:48
11 Blonker - Irgendwie - 5:18
12 Ruphus - Joy - 4:40
13 Ruphus - Inner Voice - 4:58

Part 1 Part 2

Steppenwolf - Live At The Fillmore 1968
Great soundboard recording of Steppenwolf at the Fillmore West in August of 1968, on tour to support the release of their first album. "Born To Be Wild" was probably all over the airwaves about this time.

Disc One:
01 - Your Wall's Too High
02 - John Kay Remarks
03 - Hoochie Coochie Man
04 - John Kay Remarks
05 - Born To Be Wild
06 - Desperation
07 - The Ostrich
Disc Two:
01 - Tighten Up Your Wig
02 - Disappointment Number (Unknown)
03 - Lost And Found By Trial And Error
04 - Hodge Podge, Strained Through A Leslie
05 - Resurrection
06 - Baby Please Don't Go
07 - The Pusher

Part 1 Part 2

The Rolling Stones - Unreleased Decca Live Album (1972)
Hard to imagine why Decca never released this, maybe a double live album was too much or something. Recorded at various venues in 1972, the Stones deliver inspired versions of their best songs of the period, some great tunes on here.

01 All Down The Line - 4:20
02 Brown Sugar - 3:34
03 Bitch - 4:10
04 Rocks Off - 3:54
05 Gimme Shelter - 5:52
06 Happy - 3:55
07 Tumbling Dice - 4:50
08 Love In Vain - 6:12
09 Sweet Virginia - 4:45
10 You Can't Always Get What You Want - 7:45
11 Midnight Rambler - 11:14
12 Rip This Joint - 2:16
13 Jumping Jack Flash - 3:21
14 Street Fighting Man - 4:16


Contact Trio - Double Face (1975)
Great experimental/jazz fusion from this German group. If you liked that Prosper "Broken Door" album I posted a few months back, you might like this also, as excellent guitarist Evert Brettschneider played in both bands.


OK see you later.

Save travels. Don't forget the sunscreen.

We are languishing here on the Mediterranean coast in the heat of the city in July as usual but at least there's a gentle breeze pushing away the habitual humidity otherwise we'd get no work done and it's hell to go out in the sun at midday, so I guess it's something like Arizona which is always depicted as hot and dusty and full of cactus in the films. Thanks for posting before you go, I'll go investigate. Take care and safe arrival home. - Julie

Your blog is amazing! You seemed to have been hacked last month, so I'm glad to discover the riches of your archive now (especially the more trance-like Krautrock).

Hi Sadness - You're welcome!

Hi gongmaison - You're welcome too!

Hi progfreak - I do have Gate 'Live' from 1977, I'll try to remember to post it next week, after tomorrow's post.

Hi JR HeatWarp - thanks for commenting - actually Arizona was only a few degrees hotter than it was here at home, not that bad. Of course I wasn't laying asphalt or anything!

Hi alfrocker - Welcome back!

Hi Julie - Yeah parts of Arizona are just like that, lotsa cactus. I drove right near the Grand Canyon on the way back, that part of the US is pretty amazing. I also drove through Zion National Park in Utah, which was awe-inspiring.

Hi Dr. Schluss - Thanks - what do you mean, my blog was hacked? Everything seems OK at this end!

Hi Jericho - Glad you like the blog & happy downloading! Thanks for checking in.

Hi anonymous - yep, I'm still me!

Hi anonymous - Yeah, I named the blog after it! I posted it @320 w/covers a long time ago.

Hi Behnam - nice to hear from you, thanks.

Hi anonymous - Have fun dude!

Hi man,
just want to say a big thank you for all your excellent work. I especially enjoy the Jefferson Airplane live sounds - it's always nice to hear some great westcoast rock of ol' times.

greetings from germany

Had a nice surprise today, cause the keyboarder of my old band CLOUD 9 6 THE VITAMIN C has installed a profile of that band - 60s garage psychedelic krautrock style - at Myspace without my knowledge. Wanna have a listen? Quite amateurish, but it was fun. Here you go:
Comments are welcome!

P.S.S. and by the way:
I visited the states this march and also was hiking in the Zion Nat. Park. It was nice, but what really blew my mind was the Bryce Canyon Nat. Park. Just amazing - fantastic.
