The band members are: Takáts Tamás (vocal, guitar, harmonica) Gál Gábor (guitar) Patyi Sándor (bass guitar) Mike Zsolt (drums) The Takáts Tamás Blues Band was formed in 1990. In 1991 the first record was released with the title Dirty Blues Band 1. This English language record contained 11 re-makes of songs from famous Blues producers from 1930 to the 1990. It has always been characteristic for The Blues band that they find the correct tone with the audience no matter of weather they preformed in small clubs, outdoor festivals or few thousands people large stage productions. The musicians have not only proved their talent but have also proved the truth that there will always be demand for music played by real musicians on real instruments accompanied by a singer who is using is own real voice . It has provided acknowledgement to the band that throughout the years they have preformed as a pre-band for many famous international bands performing in Hungary. These include: Bryan May( Queen), Alvin Lee (Ten Years After) , Eric Burdon (Animals) , John Mayall , James Brown. The Dirty Blues Band was the first European band to be the pre-band of Rolling Stones. After the numerous concerts of the past years (from which a few stand out like: Sziget festival from 1992 every year till now, 1997 Vienna central and eastern European cultural festival, 2002 Puistoblues Festival, Finland) in 2008 October the newest CD was released with the title : Ébredj fel!

Stackridge - Stackridge (1971)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 314 mb+3% recovery

The debut album from Stackridge consists of nine curiously light folk-tinged tracks, with elements of progressive rock cropping up here and there in the friendly Canterbury style. Their music takes on the classic storytelling route, but is bolstered and heightened by instruments like violins, flutes, cellos, trumpets, and the distinct sound of the harmonium played by Andrew Cresswell-Davis. Both James Warren and Cresswell-Davis take turns at singing such merry lyrical excerpts as "40 missing floorboards, 50 frantic far-out mice below," sounding attractively waggish and peculiarly quaint in doing so. Without coming off as overly Celtic or far too English, Stackridge culminates the humor and the essence of figurative devices and lays them out within the field of woodwind and stringed instruments. With barely any percussion, songs like "Percy the Penguin" and "The Three Legged Table" carry out their jovial entendres to the eloquence of hand-plucked piano strings and a trio of trumpets. Their refined singing style helps each song render its own character and eccentricity when added to the numerous instruments. The albums that followed such as Friendliness and The Man in the Bowler Hat housed the same poetic components as their first release with the music sounding more progressive and slightly commercial.

Prism - Armageddon (1979)

From Wikipedia:
Armageddon is the third studio album and fourth album overall by Canadian rock band Prism. It was released in 1979 on Canadian record label GRT. It achieved double platinum status in Canada (in excess of 200,000 units sold.)
Armageddon is notable for several reasons. Bruce Fairbairn received the Canadian music industry 1980 Juno Award for Producer of the Year for the album. Band leader and guitarist-songwriter Lindsay Mitchell received the SOCAN Song of the Year award for "Night to Remember". It is the band's best selling album. Despite all the commercial success, record label GRT filed for bankruptcy the next year. It is also notable for the songwriting contributions by Bryan Adams.

Man Made - Man Made (1972)

EAC | APE TRACKS+Covers | 231 mb+3% recovery

The title track of the sole album from this obscure Canadian prog band. Released in 1972 on the Good Noise Record label, it's become a minor collectible. The featured track, which had to be edited to feature on air because of its length, has some fantastic organ and flute passages, with a few spooky and interesting bits in between! The album's cover apparently caused a minor stir when it was released.

Black Spirit - Black Spirit (1978)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 276 mb+3% recovery

Like Atlantide, all the members of this band were italians working in Germany, in Volksburg, and their only album was just released in that country. Formed in 1970, they had their first concerts in 1971 with good success.
It was in 1973 that they decided to record a tape, just as a demo to work on to develop further ideas, but it was taken by their sound engineer Johnny Pesce when he left the group, and appeared some years later on LP, with no one in the band knowing about it!
Their superrare first and only album was issued in 1978 by the small and collectible Brutkasten label. The sleeve notes contain some mistakes, as Pesce is credited as drummer (he didn't play in the band and was only a sound technician) and the recordings are said to have made between 1969 and 1978 (they were made in 1973).
The album was mainly a hard rock affair in Black Sabbath style, sung in english and with some rock-blues influences, and very far from the typical italian sound. For these reasons Black Spirit are commonly listed among german prog artists.
Black Spirit kept playing until 1978, changing a few drummers after Piras left the group in 1974, and with many concerts especially in the Hamburg area. Around 1974 they even played in Denmark and Norway.
After the break-up bass player Granato returned to Sicily, drummer Piras stayed in Germany to play, while Ceravolo and Curto moved to Norway.
In this country, singer/keyboardist Salvatore Curto released in 1983 a tape album entitled Ritmo dell'amore, in a disco/pop style.

Paris - Big Towne, 2061 (1976)

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

Big Towne, 2061 was the second of the two albums recorded by Paris (not to be confused with the Hip-Hop artist of the same name), a "power trio" who were active from 1975-1977.
Paris originally comprised guitarist Bob Welch, formerly with Fleetwood Mac, bassist Glenn Cornick, formerly of Jethro Tull and drummer Thom Mooney, formerly of Nazz, but Mooney left shortly after recording the eponymous first album, so drums on this album were played by Hunt Sales, who had previously been with Todd Rundgren's Runt.
The album was not critically acclaimed, and did not sell well, reaching #152 on the Billboard pop album chart.Bob Welch had written most of the songs for a projected third Paris album, when Sales fell ill, and the group disbanded before recording started, so Welch used these tracks on his solo album French Kiss...

Paris - Paris (1975)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 278 mb+3% recovery

Californian Bob Welch, better known for the wistful romanticism of such songs as "Sentimental Lady," with Fleetwood Mac, shattered any stereotyping by composing all of the hard-rocking tunes performed on the debut album by this short-lived power trio. His bandmates were former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick and former Nazz drummer Thom Mooney. After leaving Fleetwood Mac due to several uncertain years with the band's ever-changing personnel, Welch formed Paris, as well as playing on Bill Wyman's solo album, Stone Alone, in 1976. Paris' first, self-titled album sold modestly. The follow-up, released later in the year with Hunt Sales at the drum kit, did not. When the new drummer fell ill, Welch pulled the plug late in 1976. With the help of musical friends Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood and Christine McVie, Welch got his smash hit the following year with French Kiss. It featured a hit remake of "Sentimental Lady, originally recorded for the Mac album Bare Trees back in 1972. "Ebony Eyes" and "Hot Love, Cold World" were other singles from the platinum album Welch wanted so badly and would not repeat. After Paris, Cornick left the music business for a decade, becoming sales manager with a food company.

Nantucket - Nantucket (1978)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 260 mb+3% recovery

Nantucket is a hard rock band that formed in Jacksonville, North Carolina in 1969. Originally known as beach music band Stax of Gold and later Nantucket Sleighride (after the song by Mountain), the six-member group Tommy Redd, Larry Uzzell, Mike Uzzell, Eddie Blair, Kenny Soule, and Mark Downing became a huge draw in their home state of North Carolina as a cover band. Nantucket eventually became a powerful and tenacious sensation, amassing numerous fans across the southeastern United States well before its first release.
The band signed with Epic Records in 1977 and released its self-titled album the following year, which featured the hit single "Heartbreaker." An aggressive cross-country tour followed, and Nantucket opened for top acts such as Kiss, Styx, Boston, Mother's Finest, Journey, and The Doobie Brothers. Although its debut release was fairly dated, it sold around 200,000 copies and also made the Billboard charts. In 1979, Nantucket followed up with Your Face or Mine? which fared no better in sales despite higher-quality work.
