Top incredible psych jazzy rock in the Zappa spirit but more crazy. The second cover with the fish is really more beautiful than the original one...

Great psychedelic rock with a big prog touch due to the intense parts of organ inside some pretty long tracks with complex structures. The name of the group is a little bit « seller ». A lot of bands sounds more crazy and psychedelic, but this rare... See full review

Great trio from Copenhagen. But you have way much more instruments in the record. And these songs are really in a psychedelic 70’s mood. But the recording is sounding a little bit too modern which is a shame, the really good songs deserve a good... See full review

Over the top release, and an holy grail of the 70’s in this first press. Hard psych in the Hendrix style !

Despite the loss of pete brown (Fired of his own band), the inspiration of chris spedding is strong enough to get a really good album in the total 70’s spirit. Psych/prog really trippy with really good moments and a really strange cover art. We can... See full review

Great release from this israelien band who change their name when they arrived in london in order to meet sucess in 1970. Unfortunatly, it never happen, despite a european tour in guest of Deep purple at the time. This record is good psych/hard... See full review

This record musically looks like what we can discover with this strange cover : psychedelic, funny and definitly on acid !

Only album of this band based in LA. Band consisted of five normal working class guys, who all had day-jobs, and probably didn’t know they had this musical monument inside them. What is especially striking is the fact that given the low budget, the... See full review

Pretty agree with the first review : this early 70's release is a good one. The first record of the band is a good mix between garage raw sound, harmonic soft rock of this era and prog complexity cause the musicians are good and technic. The result is... See full review

Unique album by Ginhouse, excellent trio from Newcastle. The cover of the record is a painting of what it's seems the unique photo of the band. The gatefold is pretty crazy like a lot of cover of the 70's. Musically it's in the classic vein of the... See full review

First record of the british trio Jody Grind, what a name ! And this release is a good catch if you are into 70's trip, out of the road twisted songs. The bluesy psych "usa" track sounds really great. And the crazy cover of the rolling stones is really funny... See full review

Crazy distorted trippy folk in the total vein of the Captain beefheart and his magic band style. The singer sings like the captain, the harmonica sounds so sweet and the songs are really a must have of the 70's...
posted a review of Blue Phantom - Distortions. about 1 year ago
The title "distillation" is just a killer track, trippy druggy psychedelic germs. Unfortunatly, the rest of the record is not as good as this exemple. We stay in a fuzzy psych-instrumental-rock vein, but the price of the original italian pressing... See full review

Unique album by this english/german based quartet, came out on vertigo and doesn't explode the selling rate and the charts, which is the explanation of the rarity of this original pressing. Hard rock/prog rock not really bad, but not a must-have too.... See full review

Good jazz-prog band coming from the suburbs of Paris. Featuring several members from the famous other french band Magma, and sounding more jazzy. This unique album from 1971 is a good catch, featuring also guy pedersen, famous bassist in the vaults of... See full review

Amazing unique album by Elias hulk, british quintet from Bournemouth, UK. Beautiful cover art, and great proto-hard-blues psych 70's rock. The title "we can fly" is just a killer one !

Surprising turkish psych-fuzz tripping 70's rock ! All the singles from the 70's era are unfindable, most of them has been certainly destroyed in the turkey area. This compilation is by the way a good opportunity to discover this great band...

This stray's release sound sometimes so cheesy and has been. But if you really listen to it with attention, we must recognize that there are some really good songs inside, who stay in mind easily. Not the "must have" of the 70's but a pretty good one...

Kurt and Frank was right, best album ever. Ok to be pretty honest, this is the best "worst" album ever lol. But creating all this dissonance and disharmony (and a total horror look), kinda be some pretty genius in this case. The shaggs are in the... See full review

Killer 2nd release by the band killing floor, and the last unfortunatly. Pretty raw 70's blues hard rock who didn't meet the success that it could be. Story of fate in this case, but the artwork is just magic, and could be a classic of covert art like... See full review

One of the best revival psych-rock 70's band. This first record is a must have. Perfect written songs, smokin' soundscapes by aerial guitar, psychedelic in context artwork, it's a really good job...

Pretty agree that the production suffer of lack of power and clarity. But some songs are amazing on this records, jazz-rock take sometimes all his sense. And there are some sax attacks that john zorn himself won't deny !
posted a review of Jean Cohen-Solal - Flutes Libres. about 1 year ago
If the cover looks a little bit cheesy and out of subject, the track "concerto cyclique" is just a big trippy groovy-psych instrumental as it best, an easy sample for hip hop, and hymn for chilling on a carpet. Don't miss it on a flea market !

Unique record by this obscure band. A "cream" touch and regular battles between guitar and organ, not a vital release but a good one in this bluesy-garage psych way. "Trouble" is the best track for me...
