Fresh Blueberry Pancake - Heavy (1970)



Para delírio dos caçadores de obscuridades, disponibilizamos o lendário álbum dos Fresh Blueberry Pancakes. Trata-se de uma quase desconhecida banda de Piitsburgh, formada por Tony Impavido (vocal e baixo) John Behrens (guitarra), e Geoff Rydell (bateria), que durou de 1968 a 1972, Nunca tiveram um lançamento oficial, mas sessões de estúdio de 1970 foram prensadas para divulgação (apenas 54 cópias !!!). O power trio fazia um hard rock psicodélico direto e tocado em altíssimo volume, como vocês podem observar na sensacional faixa de abertura, "Hassles", que lembra um pouco o Cream. Mais uma raridade para sua coleção.

01 Hassles
02 Being in Town
03 Clown on a Rope
04 Bad Boy Turns Good
05 I Call Him Lord
06 Down on the Farm
07 Where's the Sun
08 Sleep Bound
09 Stranded

Jade - Faces of Jade (1970)



Banda obscura de Cincinatti (Ohio) formada por Jim Aumann (teclados e vocais),Randy Morse (guitarra), Tim Nixon (Bateria)e Nick Root (baixo e vocais), o Jade (não confundir com uma banda britânica, homônina, da mesma época), lançou seu único álbum, "Faces of Jade", em 1970.

Prevalece no álbum uma fusão ente pop-follk e psicodelia, com muita influência dos Beatles, principalmente do Paul McCartney ("Rest of My Life", talvez a obra-prima deles, parece ter saido do White Album!). No mais, belas melodias ("Wait Till I Come Home", "All Alone", dentre outras, garantem a qualidade do álbum. Dá vontade de ouvir no original, em vinil...

01. Prelude Willow's End 6:42
02. Blue Ways 3:23
03. Well 2:24
04. We (Got to Make It Through) 4:00
05. My Mary (More Than Ever) 2:41
06. My Honey 2:26
07. Rest of My Life 3:13
08. All Alone 2:09
09. Flying Away 2:23
10. Wait Till I Come Home 3:53

Silver Apples (1968) - Repost


Psicodelia? Proto-punk? Experimentalismo pop? Uma das bandas mais originais de todos os tempos, os Silver Apples tentavam fazer música psicodélica eletrônica numa época em que ainda não existiam condições tecnológicas para isso (!!!).
Formada pelas figuraças novaiorquinas Simeon Coxe III e Danny Taylor, os caras lançaram dois álbuns antológicos no final dos anos 60. Esse é o primeiro deles, e traz Simeon pilotando um bizarro sintetizador primitivo formado por nove osciladores e 86 controles manuais acionados com os pés e as mãos (!!!) e cantando de um jeito robótico (uma sonoridade similar só apareceria com o Kraftwerk, vários anos depois) e Taylor mantendo um ritmo preciso e mecânico na bateria (não existiam baterias eletrônicas naquela época). Os caras conseguiram criar pérolas como "Oscillations" e "Lovefingers" num álbum inusitado que vale muito a pena conhecer. Silver Apples é o marco zero, o ENIAC de uma era da música mundial.

Offenbach - Never Too Tender


Offenbach emerged in 1970 from the transformation of various bands throughout the 60?s, the last being "LES GANTS BLANCS" lead by the Boulet brothers who were then inspired by the psychedelia of the times and artists like Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. The lineup is then comprised of Gerry Boulet (keyboard & vocals), Jean Johnny Gravel (guitars), Michel "Willie" Lamothe Jr (bass) and Denis Boulet, who left the band after the first record to be replaced on drums by Roger (Wézo) Belval. That year they meet with musician, poet and filmmaker Pierre Harel whom they integrated to the band as singer and author, and would then release the soundtrack to his movie "Bulldozer" in 1973.

The first LP came in 1971, "Offenbach Soap Opera" and became one of the first "rock" albums with songs in French coming out of Quebec. But with scarce success, the band searching for a way to gain attention, Pierre Harel proposes they present a "Mass for the Dead" at the St-Joseph Oratory in Montreal. The project is surprisingly accepted by the religious authorities and the Mass is presented November 30th 1972, attracting 5000 people to an eclectic performance of rock mixed with liturgical Gregorian chants recorded on a 16 track and released in 1973 as "Saint-Chrône-de-Néant". They spent most of the next couple of years in France touring and filming a documentary of the band called "Tabarnac", also released as a double LP with a certain success. Pierre Harel then left the band and OFFENBACH came back to Québec to find a new French music scene dominated by bands like HARMONIUM and BEAU DOMMAGE. The following albums grow more and more mainstream, although their sound can be likened to fellow Quebecois group OCTOBRE in La Maudite Machine.

In 1976 they released their first LP completely in English "Never Too Tender". After a few more lineup changes and 2 more albums in French they won a Felix Award in 1979 for best rock album of the year with "Traversion" and were joined by the Vic Vogel Big Band the same year for a tour of Québec from which the Theatre St-Denis performance was recorded and issued the next year as "Offenbach En Fusion". In 1980 they were subsequently awarded 3 more Felix Awards, for best rock album, best group of the year and best show for being the first Québecois band to headline the Montreal Forum.

After 3 more records and 1 live, they performed their last concerts in 1985 as creative tensions led Gerry Boulet to pursue a solo career. (Abduzida do ProgArchive)
