Colin Blunstone - Ennismore (1972)

XLD rip | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 185 mb+3% recovery

If anyone has a distinctive voice, it certainly would be Colin Blunstone. His wispy-breathy vocals are instantly recognizable. It presided over the Zombies and some of the best singles of the 60’s British Invasion: ‘Time of the Season’, ‘She’s Not There’ and ‘Tell Her No’. His voice can be heard in guest appearances on other artist’s recordings: Alan Parson’s “Old and Wise” and Mike Batt’s “Losing Your Way in the Rain”, for example. While not a singles artist, Blunstone has had multiple hits abroad, while hardly garnering any airplay in the U.S. “Ennismore” is Colin’s second LP. Here, as on his debut, he is produced by his former bandmates, Rod Argent and Chris White. and backed by the members of Argent. Blunstone’s second solo effort serves as a near perfect showcase for his voice. Considerably more commercial than his solo debut, in some aspects, this album almost qualifies as a “lost” Argent LP. While Colin writes several songs for this effort, it is stocked with Argent/White tunes. Anyone familiar with the Zombies will feel comfortable with this shimmering produced mix of pop and rock. While the entire set is worth hearing, for me, the best tracks on “Ennismore” are those that feature Blunstone’s trademark lyrical themes of hopeless Romantic angst over unrequited love, delivered in his trademark confidential half-whispered style, set off nicely by baroque chamber-music arrangements that are employed to such great effect. Personal highlights include the Russ Ballard-composed ballad ‘I Don’t Believe in Miracles’, ‘How Could We Dare to Be Wrong’ (both hits in the U.K. and abroad) and the rockers ‘I Want Some More’ and ‘Andorra’. ‘Andorra’ is particularly interesting as it is a near rewrite of ‘Time of the Season’, with the same echoed vocal gasps and off-time hand-claps, while incorporating flamenco guitar, giving it a distinctive Iberian feel. While one may sense that Colin is a little fey at times, this is one LP that is perfect for quiet introspection or, perhaps, as a backdrop to an intimate evening. In any case, ‘Ennismore’ is the highlight of Colin Blunstone’s solo discography and near perfect example of baroque rock.

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 264 mb+3% recovery

JONESY biography by Dave Preston:
JONESY were an early 70's band in the style of KING CRIMSON but with the unusual element of electric trumpet from Alan Bown. Other band members were John Evan-Jones - guitar & backing vocals, Jamie Kaleth - lead vocals & keyboards (including some excellent Mellotron), Gypsy Jones - lead vocals, bass guitar & recorders and Plug Thomas - percussion and backing vocals.
They recorded three albums on the Dawn Label "No Alternative", "Keeping Up" and "Growing". All are strong with the aforementioned KING CRIMSON influences. All can be approached with a degree of assurity but "Keeping Up" is probably the strongest of the three. All were reissued on CD by Korean label S-Wan.

Tracklist:
1. Can You Get That Together
2. Waltz for Yesterday
3. Know Who Your Friends Are
4. Growing

Billy Cobham - Total Eclipse (1974)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 246 mb+3% recovery

Robert Taylor (allmusic.com):
This is Billy Cobham's third solo recording under his own name and is a fine follow-up to Crosswinds. The mini-suite "Solarization" not only showcases the band's technical abilities, but also Cobham's strong compositional skills. It also features a schizophrenic piano solo ("Second Phase") from the underrated pianist Milcho Leviev, who sounds like a mutation of Cecil Taylor and Bill Evans. The funky "Moon Germs," on which John Abercrombie is pushed to inspiring new heights, became a Cobham classic. "The Moon Ain't Made of Green Cheese" is a beautiful flugelhorn solo by Randy Brecker backed by Cobham's debut on piano. The band stretches out on the lengthy "Sea of Tranquility," while "Last Frontier" is a gratuitous drum solo. This recording is highly recommended as Cobham still sounds inspired.

1. Solarisation

Billy Cobham - Spectrum (1973)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 233 mb+3% recovery

Review by Scott Yanow:
Drummer Billy Cobham was fresh from his success with the Mahavishnu Orchestra when he recorded his debut album, which is still his best. Most of the selections showcase Cobham in a quartet with keyboardist Jan Hammer, guitarist Tommy Bolin, and electric bassist Lee Sklar. Two other numbers include Joe Farrell on flute and soprano and trumpeter Jimmy Owens with guitarist John Tropea, Hammer, bassist Ron Carter, and Ray Barretto on congas. The generally high-quality compositions (which include "Red Baron") make this fusion set a standout, a strong mixture of rock-ish rhythms and jazz improvising.

1.  Quadrant 4
2.  Searching For The Right Door
3.  Spectrum

England - England (1976)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 254 mb+3% recovery

England (Not the England who recorded "Garden Shed"), was an English progressive rock band band formed in 1971 by guitarist, Olly Alcock. Originally the band included drummer, Mike Kidson, who later became Genesis' road manager, and bassist John Waite, who released the big hit "Missing You" in 1984. Despite constant touring, the band never hit the big time. By 1973, Olly Alcock was the only remaining England member. In 1974, he recruited bassist, Ben Eggleston, drummer John Clark, and saxophonist, Paul Rossiter. The band continued gigging and touring, still without any noticeable success or a record deal. By 1975, drummer John Clark had left the band. By 1976, England had secured a small record deal. Drummer, Phil Cook joined the band, and Paul Rossiter became more of a background player. The late, great Alexis Korner thought highly of the band. The band's first s/t release posted here, sank without a trace. By 1978, England had split up. Olly Alcock formed The Olly Alcock Band. Ben Eggleston retired from the music scene, and Phil Cook seems to have disappeared! England was quite a good progressive blues rock band, often compared to bands like Nektar, and Wishbone Ash. On this s/t album, all the songs were played 'live' and only the vocals were added later. A decent prog/hard blues rock album with some above average songs, great raw guitar, and nice sax work. Vocals could be better, as they sound slightly "off key" at times. However, this was a privately issued album, with a very limited circulation. With more studio production, this could have been a far better album.

1. The Osprey

Ironhorse - Ironhorse (1979)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 257 mb+3% recovery

www.canadianbands.com:
Following the disappointing lack of success of FREEWAYS and growing musical differences, Randy Bachman left Bachman Turner Overdrive in the spring of 1977. He retreated to his west coast home to ponder his future. After serving as producer for other acts including Trooper, he began writing new material while searching out the supporting cast for his new group. He began writing with Washington State native Chris Sparks. Drummer Mike Baird and John Pierce on bass were recruited to round out the group.

A deal was struck in '78 with Scotti Brothers Records and the band travelled to Hollywood's Studio 55 to record the demos, with Bachman serving as executive producer. They released their self-titled debut the next spring. It was described as Bachman's outlet to let loose all his penned up musical frustrations, the album ran the gamut of rock's spectrum, from the gritty "Watch Me Fly" and "Old Fashioned" to the almost-eclectic "Stateline Blues". The first single "Sweet Lui-Luise" showed great promise, cracking the Top 100. By that summer their second single "He's A Joker" hit the airwaves and also gained moderate success. "She's Got It", penned by Sparks was quick to follow, while the band was on the road finishing up their first North American tour.

Pressure from the label to come up with a more main-stream album led to Sparks being replaced with vocalist / keyboardist Frank Ludwig, who'd recently left Trooper. Released in the summer of 1980, EVERYTHING IS GREY featured new bassist Ron Foos as well, and was a fitting epitaphe for the band, with nothing seemingly going right. Problems with management and the label's financial woes were affecting the band - on the air and onstage. Though tracks like "Try A Little Harder", "Only Way To Fly" and the title track all held their own, all the problems going on, plus the changing musical landscape in general spelled the end of Ironhorse. Now released from their contract with Scotti Brothers, they replaced Foos with Bachman's fellow Brave Belt and BTO'er C.F. Turner on bass, and carried on - now under the monikor of Union in 1981.

1. One and Only

Joe Lynn Turner - Under Cover 2 (1999)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 399 mb+3% recovery

Stephen Thomas Erlewine:
In 1997, Joe Lynn Turner released Under Cover, a collection of his favorite hard-rock classics. It was such a success that he followed it two years later with the appropriately-titled Under Cover 2. Turner has surrounded himself with first-rate musicians: Vernon Reid, Al Pitrelli, Jeff Golub, Greg Smith and has expanded his musical outreach, taking on such numbers as "Wishing Well" and "The Race is On," along with such album-rock favorites as "Helter Skelter," "Waiting for a Girl Like You," "The Boys Are Back in Town," "Born to Be Wild," "Fool for Your Lovin" and "Mississippi Queen." Turner does a respectable job with these songs, and it's always a joy to hear Reid play, but they never eclipse the originals, even though they certainly offer their own, gonzo mettaloid stamp on these tunes. For Turner fans, the fact that he has found a way to adapt these well-known tunes to his style will be noteworthy, but for the average listener, the originals are still better.

Aunt Mary biography (www.progarchives.com):
One of the early and by many considered to be one of Norways definitely best prog bands. Their music is a mix of heavy hard-rocking tunes, combined with clear influences from the symphonic genre. The more symphonic sound however didn't appeared until their third, and last studio album, "Janus". A great concept-album to start with. If you want the more thundering sounds coming from AUNT MARY, look for 1972s "Loaded". High-skilled musicians combined with good, creative melodies makes AUNT MARY a important Norwegian band to become acquainted with.

After Shave - Skin Deep (1972)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 356 mb+3% recovery

The group was produced in May 1968, in Bienne, by Pierre-Alain Kessi (Pakman) (guitar and vocal) and André (Dédé) Pascal (drums), reinforced by Bruno Zuest (vocal) (future father of “QL”s bassist) and by “Noldi” (bass guitar). One of its first gig consisted in the featuring, in Spring 68, into a  pop contest organized by a Zurich magazine. Disqualified without glory with this commentary : “the group might be good if the guitarist did not use so much  distortion…”. Nevertheless, the group carried on playing the blues out of the repertoires of Cream, Hendrix, Mayall, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. A first single was recorded but never marketed (Look for a woman), because the group had run out of money. After different changes of line up, the group consisted in a trio in 1970, following the withdrawal of lead singer and bass guitarist, this last one being replaced by Jean-Claude Fontana (Cacou). With this new formation, the group won the famous first price in Golf Drouot in Paris in November 1970. In December 1970, Dédé decided to quit the group and was replaced by the late and regretted Rodolphe (Jötu) Baumgartner. Between 1971 and 1974 After Shave became famous, creating their own legend and repertoire. They begun touring in Switzerland, France and Germany, and experienced their first LP called “Skin Deep”. This album is now being gloriously praised in “Hard rock anthology 1968-1980” by Denis Meyer, Editions Enfer Magazine, as well as in the “Encyclopédie du hard rock des seventies” of Denis Protat, Editions Alternatives. Those two specialists repertory more than one thousand groups and records. After Shave also produced two singles. The group took on a new English singer named Barry James Brown, and a new bass guitarist, Silvano “Gugus” Paroni replaced Cacou. At that time, Pierre-Alain Kessi and his drummer Jötu had the great honour to accompany Champion Jack Dupree on his last Swiss tour... Read more

Hot Tuna - The Phosphorescent Rat (1973)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 270 mb+3% recovery

The Phosphorescent Rat is the fourth album by the rock group Hot Tuna.
The Phosphorescent Rat was a transitional album for Hot Tuna. Their blues-rock playing was moving away from the softer, more acoustic sound of their first three albums, and towards a more hard rock sound. Singer and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen's original compositions, and the group's first use of strings and woodwinds, indicated Hot Tuna was searching for a new direction.
This was the first Hot Tuna album recorded after Kaukonen and bass player Jack Casady had left Jefferson Airplane. They were joined as before by drummer Sammy Piazza. With the departure of Papa John Creach, who had left the band for Jefferson Starship, the stage was set for the power trio playing of their next four albums.
