Howdy!

Can - Box Music (Live 1971-1977)
This awesome 2 Cd set has 9 tracks culled from archival material by Michael Karoli. I think some of these might be audience tapes, but the sound quality is excellent. Includes some familiar material, and a few tracks (Jynx, Fizz, Colchester Finale & Kata Kong) that were played spontaneously on stage with no rehearsal!

Assagai - Assagai (1971)
Assagai was a group of South African and Nigerian exiles living in Britain, the only black group ever signed to the Vertigo label - possibly in an attempt to capitalize on the success of Osibisa. Very good "Afro-Rock" that needs to be played loud! Maybe you'll start dancing around the house. Interesting cover of "Hey Jude" which is sung in some African language. Upbeat, ethnic, jazzy rock.

Nosferatu - Nosferatu (1970)
Nosferatu had a short career, only this one album. Afterwards a couple members went on to Epsilon. This is raw, heavy, dark, jazzy progressive rock with maybe some psychedelic touches. The singer is brilliant, and there are great lashings of guitar, keyboards, sax and flute.

Is Assagai similar in sound to Demon Fuzz? I can't wait to get my Afreaka! on.

Hi Liam, just called in and couldn't resist the Assagai. They're definitely on the Osibisa bandwagon and there is some good music there. - Julie

I've moved my music blog to http://sakalli.blog.hr, after nearly a month after the fall of the blogspot site.

I'd be happy if you could add my site to your linked sites. Thanks in advance.

A 'thank you' is really not enough way to express my gratitude and admiration about your work, and the musical treasure that you so kindly are offering us. Only thing i want to add, is keep up the good work my friend, it is stunning in every way.
An admirer of you from Greece named George, i would really appreciate it if you could kindly contact me at spfieldsh@yahoo.gr, for a few questions that i would like to ask you.
