Wishbone Ash - New England (1976)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 232 mb+3% recovery

New England is the seventh studio album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It was a success compared to the band's Locked In album, but still did not chart as high as most of previous Wishbone Ash albums. This album would mark the "Americanization" of Wishbone Ash, as the band would relocate from England to the Northeastern United States for tax purposes.
New England contained an even balance of hard rock songs and breezy, soft rock ballads, the latter of which would see further exploration from Wishbone Ash on their next album.

The Load - Praise The Load (1976)

EAC | APE TRACKS+LOG+Covers | 303 mb+3% recovery

This powerful Columbus, Ohio trio was formed in 1973 by bassist/guitarist Dave Hessler (OSIRIS, THE DANGER BROTHERS) and brothers Sterling (keyboards) and Tommy (drums) Smith. In time, Hessler built himself a double-neck guitar with a bass on the bottom and six strings on top, while Sterling acquired a Minimoog synth, allowing him to switch from bass to synth. Doing mostly American prog with classical influences, they gigged locally for a couple of years and became part owners of Owl Studios and Owl Records, allowing them to record their first LP at their own pace in 1976, "Praise the Load". Their second effort, "Load Have Mercy", recorded a year later, was quickly shelved and wasn't to be released until it appeared on CD in 1996. They then relocated to Los Angeles, spent the next two years working as session musicians (mostly with The BEACH BOYS) and by 1979, they called it quits and returned to their native Ohio. READ MORE

Home - The Alchemist (1973)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 358 mb+3% recovery

 "The Alchemist" was the 3rd, the best and the last album of "Home" - the previous two were competent and convincing, but one couldn't even expect that the band will come with such an accomplished masterpiece. It is a concept progressive-rock album, based on a story inspired by spiritual or occult side of alchemy (although set up in 20th century). Perhaps Mick Stubbs' voice is a bit too sweet, but the album is tightly designed. The drums of Mick Cook are precise and hard, Cliff Williams (bass) and Laurie Wisefield (guitars) are doing really impressive and good job. That it reminds (somehow) "Kansas", "Moody Blues", maybe "Wishbone Ash", but in general the music is not loud - but proud. A very talented piece, and done with lot of taste...

 Canadian brass rock band LIGHTHOUSE were formed in Toronto 1969. Unusually, the band leader Ronn "Skip" Prokop (born 13 December 1946 in Ontario) was a drummer, he has played previously with artists such as Janis Joplin, Carlos Santana and Al Kooper before forming his first band THE PAUPERS. Of these, the Kooper connection is probably the most significant, as the music of Lighthouse is based around a solid brass section and big arrangements, similar to those of BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS and CHICAGO (TRANSIT AUTHORITY)...  Read more

Review by Nightfly (progarchives.com):
Sense Of The Absurd, released in 1995 was the first time any Patto music had been made available on cd. The original albums having sold poorly were also hard to come by and pricey if you did manage to find one in decent condition. In these days of ebay their first two albums on vinyl regularly sell for £200 plus. Although the albums are now available individually Sense Of The Absurd gives the buyer an opportunity to get their eponymous debut and Hold Your Fire, presented here on two discs in the original running order with the addition of some welcome bonus tracks which are worthy of inclusion...

Cold Chisel - Breakfast At Sweethearts (1979) [LP rip]

EAC | FLAC+CUE+LP Covers | 380 mb+3% recovery

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Breakfast At Sweethearts was the second studio album, released in February 1979.
The album was recorded between July 1978 and January 1979 with experienced producer Richard Batchens, who had previously worked with Richard Clapton, Sherbet and Blackfeather. Batchens smoothed out many of the band's rough edges and attempted to give their songs a sophisticated sound. This approach has made the album sit a little uncomfortably with the band ever since. Once again, the majority of the songs were penned by Walker, with Barnes collaborating with Walker on the first single "Goodbye (Astrid, Goodbye)" and Moss contributing to "Dresden". "Goodbye (Astrid, Goodbye)" became a live favourite for the band, and even went on to be performed by U2 during Australian tours in the 1980s.

Tea - Tea (1974)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 274 mb+3% recovery

A Swiss hard-rock band fronted by English vocalist Mark Storace, who under the guidance of Dieter Dierks recorded two good albums that were a hybrid of typical early-1970's British rock and Teutonic hard-rock styles. Adding the Dieter Dierks' mixing trademarks, Mellotron, and a few experimental / progressive touches, the debut sits somewhere between Scorpions and Lucifers Freind of the same period, whereas THE SHIP blended a more diverse array of styles.
We've never encountered the third album, so we can't comment on that. Later, Mark Storace took his unique Tea vocal style into the well-known heavy metal band Krokus...

The Tubes - Young And Rich (1976)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 242 mb+3% recovery

Biography by Jason Ankeny:
The Tubes were arch satirists of popular culture whose outrageous performance art concepts -- which swung wildly from softcore pornography to suit-and-tie conservatism -- frequently eclipsed their elusive musical identity. The beginnings of the group originate in Phoenix, AZ in the late '60s, where guitarist Bill Spooner, keyboardist Vince Welnick, and bassist Rick Anderson formed as the Beans (alternately billing themselves as the Radar Men from Uranus). After moving to San Francisco in 1972, the Beans recruited guitarist Roger Steen and drummer Prairie Prince (from Red, White & Blues), and later became the Tubes with the addition of Michael Cotten on keyboards and former roadie Fee Waybill on lead vocals.
