Guia de Álbuns raros - repost

Atendendo a pedidos, estou postando novamente o guia de álbuns e bandas raras de rock de todo o mundo, do colecionador Hans Pokora, que traz as capas dos álbuns, os nomes das bandas e um ranking classificando o álbum quanto à raridade (e o valor que um original pode alcançar no mercado).

Para os colecionadores, trata-se de um material essencial, um guia para os que querem fazer download. Um dos álbuns não está está completo, mas foi o que consegui achar na net, e vale muito a pena dar uma conferida. Os Caçadores de raridades não devem perder essa oportunidade.

Mario Millo - Epic III (1979) NEW LINK

First solo outing by former frontman of Sebastian Hardie and Windchase.

Primarily a guitarist and singer, Millo plays in a style that to my ears is reminiscent of both Steve Howe and Andy Latimer. He sings in the same range as John Wetton, although his voice is much smoother and less affected. The music on this record is a mixture of Symphonic Prog, lite Fusion, Pop songs and a ballad or two.

In other words, it's not entirely a Prog record, but the other influences aren't unpleasant at all - he has a nice gift for hooks and all of the material is well-crafted and oozes professionalism.

The standout number is the 14 minute title track Epic III, which shows a clear Yes influence, and is a tour-de-force of Prog Rock stylings, featuring excellent guitar work, plenty of 70's keyboards goodness, twisting rhythms and beautiful harmonies.

This record won't blow anyone away, but it's a very worthwhile listening experience and a fine piece of work from one of Australia's top musicans.

Oaksenham - Conquest Of The Pacific (2006)

Oaksenham é uma banda da Armênia. Uma pérola que veio junto com a abertura dos países do oeste europeu. A 5ª e 6ª músicas são versões das músicas do Gentle Giant, o que já nos dá uma idéia do nível técnico-musical dessa banda. Formada em 2001, esse é o seu 2º CD.

Amos Key - First Key (1973)

Ótima banda alemã dos anos 70. A classically influenced, and keyboard driven band from Germany. Their only release remains 1973's 'First Key." To show their dedication to the masters, the album was dedicated to Bach, Beethoven, and Shumann. They are mostly compared to Eskeption and The Nice. Unlike many of their contemporaries, they favored shorter songs over longer epics. Around 1975 Amos Key again entered the studio to record another album. Unfortunately it was not to be. The album was never finished, but a few demos have come to light. Since that time, little is known about the band members. O Blog agradece ao Léo pelo link.

Banda da Filândia. Quem tiver esse LP, quarde com carinho, pois o brinquedinho custa de 500 a 1000 euros na mão de colecionadores, é uma raridade.

Ancient Grease - Women And Children First (1970)


O Ancient Grease foi formada a partir da banda Strawberry Dust, muitos consideram esse um projeto paralelo da banda, mas Strawberry Dust tem mais haver com blues e R&B, esta é uma banda mais psicodelia, hard rock, rock and roll e heavy blues. O álbum é dinamite purinha!!

Ikarus - Ikarus (1971)


Realmente uma coisa rara, um rock classificado de eclético, vindo da Alemanha, quase Frank Zappa, King Crimson, Soft Machine e Van Der Graaf Generator. Eu disse "quase". Pelos instrumentos dá pra ter uma idéia melhor. Um som típico dos anos '70. O álbum tem de tudo um pouco, muito bonito. Agradecimentos ao Mestre Jediel.

A discografia do cara é enorme, com álbuns que vão dos anos 60 a 2008. Este é seu único álbum solo, imperdivel! Este disco foi lançado anos depois com o nome de 8 days in april, que já postei aqui no blog, então se você baixou o 8 days in april é a mesma coisa, é só prestar atenção na moçada que toca e no set list do álbum pra saber, ok!

Atlantis - It's getting better (1973) Atualizado em 28/10/2014

O meu álbum preferido do Atlantis é este, não sei se o melhor do grupo, mas com certeza o que mais gosto, Inga e seus companheiros dão um show, este é um daqueles albuns que a gente compra e não para de ouvir, esta sempre no prato da pick-up, comprei este disco em meados dos anos 70, sem conhecer a banda, gostei da capa (o meu lp que era edição americana tinha a capinha acima), do visual geral, na época não se podia ouvir os álbuns importados, que vinham lacrados e nenhum lojista abria o lacre só pra você poder saborear o lp, então era comum, pelo menos pra mim umas compras no escuro em certas ocasiões, acontece que não lembro de ter feito nenhuma escolha errada, minha intuição sempre funcionou a meu favor, enfim...ADORO este disco!!! Por esta razão considero Altamente Recomendado!!!

1. It's Getting Better
2. Drifting Winds
3. Days Of Giving
4. Changed It All
5. Fighter Of Truth
6. Woman's Sorrow

Atlantis - same (1972)

Aqui mais uma banda dos anos 70, formada na alemanha, simplesmente sensacional, a vocalista tem um timbre de voz único, inigualavel, e maravilhoso. Inga Rumpf canta até hoje e em seu site podemos conferir toda sua trajetória desde o tempo da City Preachers, sua primeira banda. Vou postar todos os álbuns da banda.

Atlantis was not only the name of the legendary island, the famous Greek author Plato mentioned, but also the name of a band formed by ex-Frumpy musicians Inga Rumpf, Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott, in late Summer, 1972. The initial line-up included guitarist Frank Dietz and ex-Emergency drummer Curt Cress (later with Triumvirat, Passport).

The band played a few live gigs in Germany before they recorded their debut in London's Island Studios. The US magazine, Cash Box, compared Atlantis with the Doobie Brothers and praised Inga Rumpf's blues-tinged voice. Shortly before the group went on a four week tour of England with Procol Harum, Traffic, Vinegar Joe and the Sharks, Cress and Dietz left and were temporarily supplanted by Udo Lindenberg and George Meier. After the tour, Atlantis recruited Dieter Bornschlegel (ex-Traumtorte) on guitar and Ringo Funk (ex-Jeronimo) on drums as new permanent members.

Rumpf and Kravetz remained the artistical nucleus of the band. Said Kravetz: "Inga determines this band like Rod Stewart & the Faces, her voice makes our image." Atlantis' second album "It's Getting Better" was even more determined by Inga Rumpf's preference for black rhythms: "I always took a special liking in blues, jazz and soul music, and, since I'm writing most of the songs, this influence is decisive in our music." Melody Maker "recommended" the second album and Sounds attested the band to be "the most English of all German groups".

After the gig at the Paris' Olympia, Atlantis went, again, on a four week tour of England, which included a performance at the rock show, "Old Grey Whistle Test". During this tour, Kravetz left the band and had to be hastily replaced by Rainer Schnelle (ex-Family Tree).

At the end of 1973, Atlantis was among Germany's three most popular German rock groups, according to a Musikmarkt poll.

Half a year later, the line-up changed again. Schnelle and Bomschlegel were replaced by English keyboarder Adrian Askew and ex-Curly Curve guitarist Alex Conti.

Both were featured on the third LP "Ooh Baby". Seven of the ten songs were written by Askew/Conti, while Rumpf only had three of her compositions on the album. The result was a "spicy funk album" (Musik Express) with a "bunch of Germany's best soul" (Sounds).

Atlantis was at its best on stage, which was proved by a double album recorded live at the Hamburg Fabrik from 1973 - 1975.

In Summer 1975, Atlantis went on tour in the States, mostly as opener for Lynyrd Skynyrd. After the tour, guitarist Alex Conti was fired and went on to play with Lake. The new line-up was completed with former guitarist Frank Dietz and as second guitarist Rainer Marz.

The rockier American influence was noticable on Atlantis' fourth LP "Get On Board", but the LP and the following tour failed to have commercial success. Concequently, Inga Rumpf and Karl-Heinz Schott announced their departure in January 1976.

After the split, the album "Top Of The Bill" with unreleased studio recordings from December 1975 and March 1976 was released. On February 23, 1983, the original line-up reunited for a revival concert in the Hamburg Fabrik and received standing ovations.

After Frumpy played its last concert in July 1972, singer Inga Rumpf, keyboard player Jean-Jacques Kravetz and guitarist Karl-Heinz Schott got together with guitarist Frank Diez and ex-Emergency drummer Curt Cress to form Atlantis. They were instantly hailed by the UK music paper Sounds as "The most English of all German groups." This was intended as a compliment as the blues boom was raging in England at the time and Atlantis achieved an impressive mixture of blues, R&B and soul, thanks mainly to the blues roots of the highly talented Inga.

With Inga's voice and the band's highly proficient musical ability, Atlantis quickly achieved an international level of rock performance that promised a successful future. After a few gigs, the band cut their debut album 'Atlantis' at London's Island Studios. The US magazine Cashbox compared the band to the Doobie Brothers and praised Inga's 'blues-tinged voice.' However, shortly before Atlantis went on a four-week tour of England with Vinegar Joe, Procol Harum and Traffic, both Curt Cress and Frank Diez left the band. They were temporarily supplanted by Udo Lindenberg on drums and guitarist George Meier. After the tour they were replaced by ex-Jeronimo drummer Ringo Funk and Dieter Bornschlegel (guitar) from the band Traumtorte.

Atlantis' second album 'It's Getting Better' was even more influenced by the musical ideas of Rumpf and Kravetz. Explained Kravetz: "Inga determines the image of this band like Rod Stewart with The Faces. Her voice makes our image." The new material was showcased by Atlantis in France, at the Paris Olympia on October 1, 1973. After the concert they returned to England for another four week tour. During the trip Kravetz was replaced by ex-Family Tree member Rainer Schnelle. Kravetz went on to become a member of Randy Pie. Half a year onwards and the line-up changed again, reflecting the constant pressures that musicians endure on the road. Ex-Curly Curve guitarist Alex Conti and English keyboard player Adrian Askew made their debut on the 'Spicy funk album' (Music Express), titled 'Ooh Baby'. The newcomers wrote seven of the songs on the album which was described by Britain's Sounds magazine as 'Germany's best soul'. Three of the songs were composed by Inga Rumpf.

Atlantis seemed to be permanently on tour during 1975, so the band put together their best sessions, recorded at the Hamburg Fabrik between '73 and '75, for a double album called simply 'Live'. The quintet played on top form, revealing both spontaneity and great musical power. One German music magazine said the album "Already sounded like a world-wide hit". Out of 14 songs, 13 were composed by the band, topped off with an excellent version of B.B.King's classic 'Rock Me Baby'.

After the release of this album, Atlantis went on tour of the States, during the summer of 1975, working mostly as openers for Lynyrd Skynyrd. Back once more in Germany, Alex Conti left the group to continue his career with Lake. He was replaced by former guitarist Frank Diez and Rainer Marz became second guitarist.

Under the influence of their U.S. trip, Atlantis recorded the rockier LP 'Get On Board'. It seemed like the band were on the verge of a breakthrough. Sadly, both their highly professional album and subsequent tour failed to achieve commercial success. Consequently, Inga Rumpf and Karl-Heinz Schott announced their departure in January 1976. After the split, the album 'Top Of The Bill', containing previously unreleased studio recordings from December 1975 to March 1976, was released. The ex-members of Atlantis became top studio session musicians and Inga Rumpf launched her solo career. Atlantis was once again submerged in the ocean of blues, but it remains a legendary name in the annals of rock!

Shanti - Shanti (1971)

Banda Californiana formada por músicos de origem indiana, cujo diferencial está, justamente, em acrescentar instrumentos da música hindu à formação clássica do rock. Os caras tocam muito bem - alguns deles eram músicos de estúdio, segundo consta e o álbum é acima da média de boa parte das tentativas de mesclar rock com música oriental. A faixa de abertura, "We want to be free", por exemplo, manda muito bem na fusão, lembrando a sonoridade do Grateful Dead em alguns momentos. As duas instrumentais
"innocence" e "Shanti", também são surpreendendes. Se você gosta de cultura sessentista, principalmente da cultura hippie californiana, vai ser impossível não se deixar levar pelos sons viajantes da primeira. Sensacional.

Frumpy - live (1972)

Mais banda Alemã, sensacional!!!

The four musicians who formed FRUMPY were all members of Irishman O' Brian-Docker's folkband The City Preachers, which he founded in Hamburg in 1965.

The City Preachers played an excellent blend of American and British folk music and had, sometimes, over a dozen people on stage. Discontent with singer Dagmar Krause, drummer Carsten Bohn left the City Preachers in November 1969 and took singer Inga Rumpf, French keyboarder Jean-Jacques Kravetz and guitarist Karl-Heinz Schott with him to form FRUMPY.

In spring of 1970, FRUMPY started a successful tour of France. The same year, they went on a 50 concert tour with SPOOKY TOOTH, and played with YES, HUMBLE PIE and RENAISSANCE. In autumn of 1970, FRUMPY released the first album "All Will Be Changed" which contained only own material with the exception of a Richie Havens cover. The Following year guitarist Rainer Baumann joined FRUMPY and played on the bands second LP "Frumpy 2", which was rapped in a round plastic bag.

In Germany, the album was well received and proved that rock music from Germany could live up to international standard. Their music combines jazz, soul and eastern elements with the keyboards as the most important instrument.

FRUMPY topped the Musik Express poll as the most popular German rock group of the year and the newspaper FAZ assisted singer Inga Rumpf to be "the country's biggest individual talent", but a tour of England with MOTT THE HOOPLE failed to attract popularity in Britain.

Musical differences with keyboarder Kravetz caused him to leave FRUMPY, in spring 1972, to record a solo Lp with Inga Rumpf singing one song. But he returned for the recording sessions of FRUMPY's third LP "By The Way". But FRUMPY disbanded after a farewell concert on June 26, 1972. Inga Rumpf, Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott formed ATLANTIS. The year 1990 saw a FRUMPY reunio and a new LP "Now!". (PA)

Jeronimo - same (1971)

Jeronimo was founded in 1969 and in '69/'70 they had their first two hits "He Ya" and "Na Na Hey Hey". With these two chartbreakers, Jeronimo climbed to the number 1 position in almost all European countries.

In 1970 Jeronimo and "Steppenwolf" toured successfully through Germany and in the same year Jeronimo partook in the legendary "Progressive Pop Festival" in Cologne. Following that, Jeronimo shared the headlines with such groups as "Deep Purple" and "Golden Earring" at various European open-air festivals.

In 1970, Jeronimo, together with Creedence Clearwater, presented the album "Spirit Orgaszmus", which was a success throughout all of Europe.

After 30 years and millions of records sold worldwide, Jeronimo is still cult. In 1999/2000, their hits "Na Na Hey Hey" and “He Ya" were re-released on numerous hit-compilations.

The CD's "Cosmic Blues", "Time Ride" and "Best of" have been available in record stores since 1991.

After numerous negotiations with "the purple record-company" in Frankfurt, Ringo Funk successfully acquired the rights to all of Jeronimo's songs in November of 2000.

In the spring of 2002, 4 new CD's "Jeronimo", "Cosmic Blues", "Time Ride" and "Best of" will be released, which have been digitally mastered from the original recordings. There will be a bonus track on each of the CD's (partially with previously unreleased material). (ProgArchive)

Acid - same (1974)

Banda Austriaca, formada por Robert Ponger (organ, piano, clarinet), Herbert Novacek (bass, vocals), Rudi Staeger (drums, percussion).

Fazem um som bastante interessante, a primeira faixa do álbum é um clássico do J.J.Cale, acredito que quase todos gostem do disco. Um álbum bem bacana de se ouvir, sem grandes pretenções mas honesto. Me alegro sempre que ouço este disco. Gosto muito do álbum, recomendo!
