Crazy Horse - Crazy Moon (1978) [Re-post by request}


 
Review by William Ruhlmann (allmusic.com):
Six years went by between the release of Crazy Horse's third album, At Crooked Lake, and its fourth, Crazy Moon, and a lot of water went under the bridge in the meantime. Crazy Horse was, in effect, three different bands on its first three albums because the only constants were bassist Billy Talbot and drummer Ralph Molina as lead singers, songwriters, guitarists, and keyboardists came and went. The band name seemed to be retired by 1973, but in 1974 Talbot and Molina hooked up with singer/guitarist Frank Sampedro as Crazy Horse, leading to sessions with their erstwhile employer Neil Young that resulted in the Young/Crazy Horse album Zuma.

Epsilon - Move On (1972)


 Epsilon biography (progarchives.com):
Formed by members of Orange Peel and Nosferatu (the vocalist / guitarist Michael Winzkowski), the band Epsilon published three LPs between 1971 and 1974. Their self title can be considered as their best, a nicely varied and achieved combination between heavy blues rockin' sections and coherent progressive skills. Their second "Move on" (1971) represents a more mainstream rock album with a few enjoyable moments. With the album "Epsilon off" (1975) the band turn to a straight heavy rockin' trip in a typical 70s style.

Tracklist:
1. Walkin' On My Way

2. She Belongs To Me
3. Feelings
4. What About The Future
5. Move On
6. Reichelsheim
7. Hear Me Cryin'
8. Waiting
9. Don't Know Why

Line-up:
Michael Winzkowski - vocals, guitars, percussion
