British Top Notch Psychedelia: Kaleidoscope - Tangerine Dream 1967 (1998 Repertoire Records) Flac & mp3@320
No relation to the far better known American Kaleidoscope, though this British group was also psychedelic, and was active at almost exactly the same time in the late '60s.
And here comes the complete review by allmusic:
Probably has the edge as the best of their two albums, but not by much. Includes several of their best songs: "Flight From Ashiya," "Dive Into Yesterday," "The Murder Of Lewis Tollani," and especially the fragile ballad "Please Excuse My Face." (Richie Unterberger, allmusic)
Wow...this at great length review let no questions unanswered.
Dear Folks maybe you know that i love this band. This is their first album full of british psychedelia and folk sounds from the mid sixties in parts influenced by ''Diamond'' Syd. Rather the guys are no simple copies. If you don't know this album and you like british psychedelia grab it. It's highly recommend. This is the Repertoire release from 1998 but i added also the artwork from the 2005 Repertoire release. The tracklist is the same and i think it's the same remastered tapes like the '98 release. So you can choose your preferred artwork if you want print it. Anyway i hope you enjoy.
Frank Flac part 1 & Flac part 2 mp3@320
A band from Ohio, Freeport cut this album in 1970. It was the only album by the band. In my opinion it is a real good one. As i heard the first time about it it was called ''Psychedelic Rock''. But it's definitely not psychedelic. To me it have a lot of pop inside. Very fine guitar work (often very heavy), good songs, very good vocals here and fine pop melodies in the most songs. I don't know how to name it, so i call it a very good album :-).
Frank Flac & mp3@320
I posted some weeks or months ago a Singles collection by Dave Berry in mp3. Here is now a very good ''Best Of'' from Rotation Records. 20 of his well known hits, mostly from the sixties.
Dave Berry was a former teenage idol and a star in the early/mid sixties here in Europe and with some songs also in the UK.
His most successful songs are ''Cryin Game'', ''Memphis, Tennessee'', Little Things. He had a Number 1 hit in the Benelux states with ''This Strange Effect'' that was written by Ray Davies but never recorded by himself or with the Kinks as far as i knows.
His early hits name-checked his backing band the Cruisers who at that time were John Fleet (bass and piano), Roy Barber (rhythm guitar), Frank Miles (lead guitar) and Kenny Slade (drums). Berry parted with this line-up around the time of "The Crying Game" and recruited three more local musicians - Frank White, Johnny Riley and Pete Cliff as the second generation of Cruisers. Lead guitarist White was eventually replaced by Roy Ledger. Berry regularly used session musicians Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Big Jim Sullivan and Bobby Graham.
Currently in the Cruisers are Daniel Martin (lead guitar since 2010), Adrian Fountain (rhythm guitar since late 2011), Dan Wright (drums, from January 2013) and Brian Wood (bass guitar, joined 24 years ago, the longest serving member of the band).
In 2009 RPM Records issued a double disc with the title '' This Strange Effect (The Decca Sessions '63 - '66)''. If someone is interested i can post the double disc, too (But it's only in mp3@320).
Okay hope you will like this one and
