Hey - what did the hat say to the tie? "You hang around, I'll go on a head"!!

Pacific Gas & Electric - Live 'n' Kicking At Lexington (1970)
Unreleased live album from this interracial Southern California band, recorded at a Federal drug rehab center in Lexington Kentucky. These guys were right up there with The Chambers Brothers and Sly and the Family Stone, only a lot bluesier. Over an hour of great bluesy rock - maybe a little sloppy and self-indulgent at times, but hey these guys were good!

Popol Vuh - Einsjäger & Siebenjäger (1974)
On their fifth album, Popol Vuh is now a trio, and this may be the best release from their "Golden Era". This is mostly Florian Fricke on keyboards, Daniel Fichelscher on percussion and guitar, with some occasional vocals from Djung Yun. Melodic, introspective and atmospheric.

Out Of Focus - Palermo 1972
A fairly recent release, this thing has Out Of Focus performing in May 1972 at the Teatro Biondo in Palermo Italy. About 75 minutes of awesome jazzy, psychedelic, folky, bluesy music.

01. Whispering (10:15)
02. Cafe Stiletto (13:10)
03. I Want To See Your Face No More (12:32)
04. Where Is Your Home Town (8:56)
05. Fly Bird Fly / Television Program (20:35)
06. I'm Kissing Right (10:38)

Kamæleon - Kamæleon (1978)
I've has this on my hard drive for years and I can't tell you much about it, there is no English info on the net that I can find. This is a very good vinyl rip of some exemplary jazz fusion, from Denmark. Eight tracks of some real tasty contemporary 70's jazz.

Bass - Jens Jefsen
Drums - Poul Poulsen
Engineer [Ass. Engineer] - Thomas Brecklin
Engineer, Mixed By - Flemming Rasmussen
Guitar - Uffe Steen Jensen
Keyboards - Fini Høstrup
Percussion - Steen Råhauge
Producer - Kamæleon
Producer, Mixed By - Freddy Hansson

Sonny Boy Williamson - Don't Send Me No Flowers
The first eight tracks of this were recorded in two and a half hours at a last minute session on the morning of Sonny Boy's departure for the States after his last ever trip to England, in 1965. He died three weeks later and these were his last recordings. Accompanying him on these unrehearsed tracks were Brian Auger and one or two of the Trinity, Jimmy Page, and a couple well-known British sax players, Alan Skidmore and Joe Harriot. Not the best album ever, I don't suppose, nonetheless a very good album of jazzy blues. Or bluesy jazz.

Hi, thanks for the rips.

I wouldn't say Pacific Gas & Electric were 'right up there' with Sly and the Family Stone - they are a rock-blues band, if anything they'd be closer to the Allman Brothers.

The PG&E is great. One curiosity though, they have Motor City's Burning credited to John Lee Hooker. On the Kick Out The Jams album it's credited to Fred Sonic Smith. The MC5 did do a good handful of covers, but they always credited them as such. I seriously doubt that they would have taken credit for a John Lee Hooker song, and then not even give themselves an arrangement credit on The Troggs tune which they clearly made their own.
