Wishbone Ash - There's the Rub (1974)


There's the Rub is the fifth studio album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It is the first album to feature guitarist/vocalist Laurie Wisefield, who would be a major part of the band's creative direction for the next 11 years.
The title is taken from Shakespeare's Hamlet; "To sleep--perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub."
The track "F.U.B.B." caused controversy because of the acronym's meaning ("Fucked Up Beyond Belief") upon the album's release. Moreover, the haunting ballad "Persephone" would go on to become one of the band's most popular live songs. The lyrics of "Lady Jay" are based on the Dartmoor folk legend about Kitty Jay.
The cover shows a cricketer rubbing (in effect, polishing) a cricket ball on his trousers - a common practice by fast bowlers who do so in order to make one side of the leather ball shinier than the other. This helps the ball to 'swing' as it travels through the air after being bowled, so making it harder for the batsman to play it.

Martin Turner - bass, vocal
Andy Powell - acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, vocal
Laurie Wisefield - acoustic, electric & steel guitars, banjo, vocal
Steve Upton - drums, percussion
Additional Personnel
Albhy Galuten - organ, synthesizers
Nelson Flaco Padron - congas and additional percussion

"Silver Shoes" - 6:36
"Don't Come Back" - 5:12
"Persephone" - 7:02
"Hometown" - 4:48
"Lady Jay" - 6:00
"F.U.B.B." - 9:33

Wishbone Ash - Four (1973)


Wishbone Four is the fourth studio album by British rock band Wishbone Ash. It was a radical departure from their previous album, Argus, containing almost none of the twin-lead guitar harmonies and folk elements that featured in the previous album. Though Wishbone Four was popular among fans upon its release, sales paled in comparison to Argus, and founding member Ted Turner would leave the band after the subsequent tour.

Ted Turner - lap-steel, 12 string, acoustic and electric guitars, vocals
Andy Powell - acoustic and electric guitars, vocals
Martin Turner - bass guitar, vocals
Steve Upton - drums and percussion
Additional musicians
George Nash - keyboards on "Everybody Needs a Friend"

"Doctor" - 5:53
"Sorrel" - 5:03
"Sing Out the Song" - 4:24
"Rock 'n Roll Widow" - 5:50

Wishbone Ash - Live dates (1973)

Live Dates is the first live album by the British rock band Wishbone Ash.
Following the release of the album, founding member Ted Turner left the band, resulting in a shift of the band's musical approach.
The album was recorded in June 1973 at Croydon Fairfield Halls,[A] Reading University,[B] Newcastle City Hall,[C] and Portsmouth Guildhall.[D] The version of "Phoenix" on disc one was recorded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1972, and was also included on the Live from Memphis album. However, the MCA double-album set (MCA2-8006) also issued in June 1973, contains only the seventeen minute, thirteen second version. It follows "Lady Whiskey" on side four.

Bo Hansson and Janne Carlsson - Monument (1969)


O primeiro disco do Bo Hansson que comprei foi o Lord of the Rings, vinil importado, maravilhoso, comprei na Modern Sound (Copacabana) sem conhecer, adorei a capinha, adorei e comprei pra confirir e não me arrependi nem um pouco!

Mas em Monument ele esta com outro sueco fabuloso e podem ser considerados os ancestrais de tudo que aconteceu no cenário jazzistico sueco.

Janne Carlsson baterista, que mais tarde se tornou um ator famoso aqui na Suécia.
Bo Hansson órganista, é um dos musicos mais famosos da Suécia.

Seu álbum "Sagan om ringen" ou "Senhor dos anéis" de 1970 é um dos álbuns mais vendidos na Suécia.

Reddy Kirken (vocals, percussion, 1970-73), Dusko Goykovich (trumpet, 1970-71), Frank Diez (guitar, 1971-72, 1974-?), John Redpath (drums, vocals, 1971-73), Bernd Knaak (drums, percussion, 1973-74), Jerzy Ziembrowski (bass, 1973-74), Richard Palmer-James (guitar, vocals, 1973), Veit Marvos (keyboards, 1973-74), Peter Bischof (vocals, 1973-74), Todd Canedy (drums, percussion, 1974)

A Triggering Myth - Same (Jazz Rock/Fusion • United States)


The band was formed in 1989 by Rick Eddy and Tim Drumheller, an American duo of multi-instrumentalists who handle keyboards, guitars, percussions, flute and trumpet, although they regularly enlist the contribution of talented guest musicians on drums and percussion. Heavily keyboard based (especially the piano), their style is a curious mixture of jazz, rock and classical (symphonic) music with dark, mysterious overtones without being sinister - more like suspenseful. Even when the guys kick into high gear the atmosphere remains tension-filled. As far as comparisons go, names such as GENTLE GIANT, VDGG or ELP have surfaced but none truly convey the originality of this twosome, whose sublime interplay and strong emphasis on counterpoint cleverly blends all of these bands' styles and more, resulting in a unique contemporary sound of its own.

Their music seems to become more unusual and complex with every new output. Their second album, 'Twice Bitten", already shows much maturity over their self-titled debut, both in playing and in composition. Their second and third releases, "Between Cages" and "The Sins of our Saviours", continue somewhat in the same vein whereas their fifth, "Forgiving Eden", is a single 43:32-minute suite divided into several movements. A superb work of art where the addition of guitarist Scott McGill and drummer Vic Stevens infuse the music with still more fusion elements.

If you like music that is particularly unconventional, even unpredictable, you'll be in Canterbury heaven with this band's material: a rich production of music that boldly dares to diverge from the conventional rock formulas.

Socrates Drank The Conium - On The Wings (1973) (Greece)


On The Wings was a 1973 album released by Socrates Drank The Conium. It features a heavier sound than the previous records, reminiscent of that of 70s bands such as Led Zeppelin and progressive Black Sabbath. They did not lose their blues roots, however, as evidenced by such tracks as "This Is The Rats".

For the recording of this album, Socrates Drank The Conium recruited a second guitarist in addition to Yannis Spathas. His name was Gus Doukakis.

Esta publicação foi feita originalmente no blog Contramão Brasil que também é administrado por mim, porém pretendo trazer todas as postagens de lá pra cá, administrar dois blogs é muito complicado.

Do site da gravadora: "O Sleepwalker Sun conta com forte influência do rock progressivo setentista e contemporâneo, demonstrando em seu auto-intitulado cd grande maturidade. Os talentosos músicos possuem larga experiência no cenário progressivo, e contam com uma versátil vocalista, que alterna passagens mais agressivas com outras suaves e angelicais. Neste lançamento temos o mais puro rock progressivo com participações especiais de Marcus Viana (Sagrado/Shaaman), André Mello (Tempus Fugit), Alex Martinho, entre outros grandes músicos do cenário. Outro destque vai para a embalagem de luxo com slipcase e belíssima arte do designer Gustavo Sazes (que tem em seu currículo bandas como TRIBUZY, ASHTAR, IMAGO MORTIS, FATES PROPHECY, VER´S OVER, etc etc)."

O que a RPB tem a complementar? Egressos da banda Revealing Web, Luiz e Giana juntaram-se a Francisco, Rodrigo e a uma penca de convidados de peso (Andre Mello, Marcus Viana, Ricardo Aguiar etc) e, de fato, lançaram este BELO trabalho, sem sombra de dúvida. O grupo segue uma tendência mundial no estilo: colocar o peso do Heavy Metal entre as músicas sinfônicas. A entrada de Marcus Viana nas músicas 1 e 6 (esta última, com piano, voz e violino, é de chorar de tão bonita e já entrou para a história do rock progressivo brasileiro) engrandece o trabalho do grupo. a vocalista é maravilhosa, idem o guitarrista, idem o baixista (ouçam a primeira música), bem como todo o grupo, que segue a linha do Ayreon, Ashtar (sem a veia celta e também bem menos pesado). Disparado entre os melhores nacionais do ano de 2005.

O grupo fica devendo um trabalho sem os apelos comerciais que assolaram o mercado em 2005. Experimentem também apenas a veia sinfônica (que timbres de mellotron maravilhosos, hein?) para ver o resultado! Se pretendem continuar nesta linha, parabéns da mesma forma pois estão no caminho certo! Belo trabalho gráfico, igualmente!

Minha opinião: Vale a pena conferir o disco que é bem legal.

Arakontis - Live at the Quasimodo (1981) (Germany) Fusion


Fusion da melhor qualidade, este é um daqueles discos que não se acha nenhuma referencia na web, nada que eu já não soubesse foi encontrado, queria fotos da banda e mais informações, mas não encontrei nada. Nem no youtube tinha nada, vou publicar uma canção no youtube amanhã e depois coloco aqui como palinha do álbum.

Apenas no New Gilbratar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock e no RYM achei pouquissimas informações. Abaixo a resenha do Gilbratar:

Arakontis is a Berlin-based, rather nondescript, funky fusion band with rock leanings led by guitarist Michael "Willy" Wilke. Others on Live at the Quasimodo include 2nd guitarist Dieter Anker, Gerard Batyra (bass), Andreas Hommelsheim (piano, keyboards), Lutz Hafler (drums) and percussionists Tommy Goldschmidt and Michael Tybus. The only familiar name to me is Goldschmidt, who also percussed in the last edition of the Release Music Orchestra, and in Supersession (a jazz-rock big band active during the early 1980s). On Live at the Quasimodo, Arakontis is captured live on New Year's Day, 1981. The first track here is a dedication to Geroge Benson, and sounds like something off of his Breezin' LP. Fortunately, the rest of Live at the Quasimodo isn't nearly so lame - in fact most of it is OK, albeit somewhat inferior to similar German fusion bands of the time, such as Virgo, Aera, and the Release Music Orchestra. Actually, one of the pieces reminded me a bit of Pekka Pohjola's later, less complicated stuff (e.g. Urban Tango), and another 2 had me thinking of those Janne Schaffer LPs that got released in the US during the late 1970s. Bassist Batyra reinforces the Pohjola comparison with his excellent playing - he's possibly the band's strongest improvisor. Wilke is a pretty good jazz guitarist with heavy blues and rock leanings and a trebly, rough-hewn sound (Carlos Santana is a big favorite of his, evidently). Keyboardist Hommelsheim is an OK soloist in a pastoral, bluesy Bruce Hornsby-like mode, except when he hops on the mini-Moog for a few choruses. I like the fact that he eschews string synths entirely. This one's for fusion nuts only. -- Dave Wayne

Skin Alley - same (1969) UK (Jazz Rock/Fusion / Progressive Rock)


Formed in the fall of 68, Skin Alley turned professional when they signed to Clearwater Productions as managers (whom also handled High Tide, The Trees and a bit later Hawkwind), on word from an ex-member that was now in the firm. Gigging around regularly for free (concerts organized by their management firm) in order to find a following, this West-London quartet developed a different kind of rock that drew much from jazz and blues. Built around keyboardist Juskiewicz and part-time guitarist, but sax and flute player Bob James, Skin Alley had a distinctive sound, which made them stand out at the many free concerts they played. Having been spotted by the legendary John Peel, they recorded a BBC session for the Top Gear programme, which in the short term landed them a recording contract with the English branch of CBS. Recorded in November of that year, it was released in March 70 coupled with a non-album single. The critical acclaim and encouraging sales lead CBS to allow Skin Alley (who suffered the departure of Crimble during the recording and was partly replaced by ex-Atomic Rooster bassist Nick Graham) to release a second album, From Pagham And Beyond, later that same year.

For some reasons (the album was not as successful as the debut), CBS decided not to invest further in the band, and Skin Alley had to find another label, which took a while. It wasn't until early 72 that their third album was released on the small folk Transatlantic label (and amazingly enough, the soul Stax label in the US), but by that time Skin alley was a different band, drummer Pope had left the group, replaced by Tony Knight, and the SA had a much rockier approach aimed at the US, even enjoying some success with the track Skin Valley Serenade. Their third album Two Quid Deal offers much prog while they recorded the last album Skintight in Memphis, Tennessee (home of Stax Record), maybe a hint that they had axed everything towards America, because of its country rock flavours. They disbanded the following year and outside Graham, none were to make much waves in the music industry.

Pornosonic - Unleased 70's Porno Music NEW LINK


Pornosonic nasceu em 1971 de um encontro casual entre Ron Jeremy e Argott Don.

Ao longo de 20 anos o grupo fez algumas das músicas mais criativas e atraentes para o cinema adulto. Além de muitas faixas não créditadas em filmes bem conhecidos.

Pornosonic started in 1971 when Ron Jeremy met Don Argott, an L.A. session musician. Pornosonic wrote and performed some of the most well-received music for the adult film world over the next 20 years. They produced many credited and uncredited tracks for well known (and less known) films. Recently a "lost" cache of songs was located and two compilations of those songs were released in 2004 & 2005 under the band’s name. According to rumor, many of the band members went on to other musical endeavors, but non-disclosure agreements were signed about their work in Pornosonic, and, while several of the original members went on to become (in)famous names, the management of Pornosonic and the subsequent title holders to their catalogue are not allowed to mention these members by name.

Banda nacional (Espirito Santo) de rock progressivo lançou em 2010 seu primeiro álbum totalmente independente. No site além do álbum em brave informações sobre o grupo e novidades.

Teclados, num clima orchestral prog sinfônico mesclada a uma atmosfera jazz.... Prepare-se para ouvir um excelente disco de uma banda Brasileira com forte influência Europeia. Instrumentistas competentes, musicos com técnica e sentimento. O sagrado e o profando se fundem em meio as faixas deste álbum conceitual com climas densos, suaves, cheios de misterios. Adorei o álbum! Altamente recomendado!

Sobre o disco fala Gustavo Caverzan: Uma ponderação interessante sobre o nosso disco é que as sete faixas, na verdade, compõem uma única música. Se reparar o início de uma faixa se entrelaça com o término da faixa que a antecede. Um detalhe conceitual importante para a compreensão do todo da obra.

Ainda: comunico que, em seu conjunto, este nosso primeiro disco, terá um desdobramento temático a se permitir à continuidade na representação do nosso segundo disco. Informo que o segundo disco do Ávora Di Carlla está em fase de produção e gravação, tendo uma previsão para ser lançado no ano de 2013.

Ávora di Carlla:
o velho, a carne e a psicodélica árvore do imaculado ventre da terra

After the show, Blackmore recommended that MCA Records sign the band.

Wolfmother - Sydney Australia FM Broadcast (Bootleg) (2005)


Wolfmother é uma banda australiana de hard rock formada em Erskineville, subúrbio de Sydney, em 2000. Formação, atual, Andrew Stockdale (Vocal e guitarra solo), Ian Peres (baixo, teclado e vocal de apoio), Aidan Nemeth (guitarra base) e Dave Atkins (bateria). Segundo Andrew Stockdale, a banda é fruto de vários anos de "jams" no anonimato. Sua música é descrita como um Hard Rock Clássico, inspirado em grandes bandas da década de 1970 como Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin e Deep Purple, incorporando elementos do rock psicodélico e até de folk. Vencedora de um Grammy em 2007 com a canção "Woman" na categoria Melhor Desempenho de Hard Rock, concorria com bandas como System of a Down, Tool e Nine Inch Nails. As vezes parece que você esta ouvindo mesmo uma banda dos anos 70, muito bom o som dos meninos. Recomendo!

Le Orme - Uomo Di Pezza/Felona e Sorona/In Concerto/Florian (4 Álbuns)

Excellent early-70's Italian progressive trio (still around today) with classical stylings, featuring keyboards to the fore and a unique dreamy/powerful style. Le ORME was one of the three major Italian groups, the other two being PFM and BANCO. This band is usually considered as the Italian EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER and even BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO by the Italian singing. Its music is based upon organ developments and soli reminding Seventies groups which works are essentially built upon keyboards parts.

The band's truly classic period begins with their third next releases. "Uomo Di Pezza" (1972) is one of Le Orme's definitive Italian progressive rock albums. Although there is definitely an significant EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER influence here, as in the bombastic Moog and Hammond workouts countered by mellow balladry. It's not quite as integrated a feel as would characterize their next two albums, "Felona E Sonora" and "Contrappunti", though its fantastic nonetheless, and one of Le ORME's three essential albums. "Collage" and especially "Florian" offer a music tinged with classical music. "Felona E Sonora" (1973) is probably one of my top favorite Italian progressive rock albums. "Contrappunti" (1974) is another fantastic Le ORME album, and really the close of their classic trilogy. This album would effectively close out the band's streak of success.

"In Concerto" is an excellent live album from 1974 with many unreleased tracks. "Piccola Rapsodia Dell' Ape" is more recent, an excellent mixing of Progressive and Italian baroque music. "Collage" and especially "Florian" offer a music tinged with classical music. In 1993 the Japanese progrock label Crime Records released the 2-CD Live ORME with live-material from '75-'77. An far more captivating document than "In Concerto" from '74.

Their story goes on. After PICCOLA RAPSODIA DELL'APE (1980), in 1982 the band decides to break up. In 1986 they rejoin only for concerts but in 1990 a further work is issued (ORME). In 1992 Tony Pagliuca leaves the band, replaced by Michele Bon. That year they obtain the title of best Live-Act band seen in Italy. They never give up symphonic prog and their further works show it clearly. In spite of the success obtained by their live performances, in 1996 they publish a suite (IL FIUME). After obtaining a great success at the Los Angeles PROG FEST and at the PROG EAST in Quebec, they commit themselves to the new work which will be finished in 2001 (ELEMENTI). This latter, together with IL FIUME, will be part of a trilogy completed, in 2004, by L'INFINITO. The trilogy, a mix of songs and instrumental pieces, tells about the mankind through the 4 elements of the universe. In 2005 they are invited at the NEARFEST concert in Pennsylvania. Their music may well be considered as a continuous commitment in PROG ROCK: over the last 42 years they never gave up their passion. They also tried to convey PROG Rock to the people by participating to song contests such as Festival di Sanremo, a very popular TV music happening in Italy. Le Orme is one of the few foreigner bands who have been produced by a British label. The Famous Charisma Label issued FELONA E SORONA in English, lyrics by Peter Hammil, after their tour in England in 1973.
