EAC | CD Image | WV+CUE+LOG+Covers | 363 mb+3% recovery

Encouraging Words is steeped in exemplary playing and songwriting… and pure soul. Produced by George Harrison and packed with originals and inspired covers, including 'My Sweet Lord' and 'All Things (Must) Pass' - donated by George before he released them himself - and the little-heard Harrison-Preston gospel hymn 'Sing One For The Lord'. This is Billy on the launch pad just before he rocketed to U.S. No.2 success with 'Outta Space' for A&M Records.

Re-post: Gomorrha - I Turned To See Whose Voice It Was (1972)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 312 mb+3% recovery

Originally a psychedelic pop band, the debut album from the mysterious Gomorrha featured a number of rather dated pop songs, topped off by the lengthy opus "Trauma" recorded with the aid of Conny Plank, who turned it into an opus of spectacular electronics and effects, mixing freaky rock with abstract collage. Some time later, and again under the aegis of Conny Plank, they re-recorded the album with English vocals and a more modern sound, releasing it as TRAUMA. A far more successful album, all the compositions being given a new lease of life, with the title track, instead of diving into a collage, treks on to space-rock. Gomorrha's finest moment however was I TURNED TO SEE WHOSE VOICE IT WAS, where Gomorrha's identity had become firmly established: complex psychedelic rock fronted by angry guitars and organ, that could be simultaneously aggressive and spacious, with bizarre lyrics about life, religion, death, etc. They presented a unique, adventurous and constantly surprising form of rock music that has become an island unto itself.

Re-post: Iguana - Iguana (1972)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 380 mb+3% recovery

Not to be confused with American outfit of the same name, mysterious British band Igtia'na was'. formed in Southampton in early 1970s to release one excellent album and then disappear without a trace, The core of the band was guitarist/vocalist Bruce Roberts, bass-player John Cartwright and drummer Pete Hunt, The trio was augmented by strong dual brass-section – Ron Taylor on alto sax and tambourine and ' Chris Gower on trombone. The solid presence of horns together with excellent songwriting is what makss. Iguana’s only offering truly unique.
Despite the album being released on the well-known Polydor label, it quickly became one of its most obscure items, since for some strange reason nobody was interested in the great blend of loud jazz-rock and energetic heavy rock stuffed with progressive elemenets. Surprisingly enough, even Tapestry Of Delights, the Bible for any British psych/prog fan, missed this one! Time has come to unearth this minor classic.
The sound of Iguana is rich and colorful, based on permanent juxtapositions of heavy, some what funky guitar sound and jazzy saxophone riffs – most of the songs are catchy and easy-to-get-into, in spit'e of their complex structures. Though most of the tracks are vocal-driven, there are enough space foi" adventurous instrumental excursions, the band achieves a perfect balance between song-oriented stgff and sophisticated progressive compositions (such is the longest piece on the LP, almost 9-minute “P.rice of Love”, reminding me of Colosseum, Mogul Thrash and other prcminent brass rockers of the eariy 1970s). Actually Brainchild's "Healing Of The Lunatic Owl" would be the closest comparison to Iguana’s. debut, only if Brainchild work was closer to progressive realms, Iguana veers more towards pure rocking sound, making the accent on sheer frank intensity of the early British rock music.
Unable to get the recognition they deserved, the musicians of Iguana almost decided to call it quits, when they've got noticed by prominent songwriter Jess Roden (ex-Alan Bown Set, ex-Butts Band). The whole Iguana line-up became Roden's backing band, touring with him for several years and helping hini to record several highly acdaimed LPs in the mid-1970s (including Keep Your Hat On"). Although the col-laboration with Roden might probably be lucrative for Iguana musicians, it must be pointed out that'.it ended their short career as independent songwriters. However, the sole Iguana LP from 1974 proves they could really do a talented, original and highly creative music. This is the first ever CD-reissue of this great "lost" album.

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

Fronted by highly assertive female vocals, this Frankfurt quintet was formed in 1973 by guitarist Pit Hensel and bassist Claus Kniemeyer; musically, they followed in the tradition of FRUMPY, RUPHUS, EARTH & FIRE. Between 1976 and 1981, they released four albums of which the first two, "The Boat of Thoughts" (76) and "An Ocean of Rocks" (78), are by far considered their best. The subsequent "Rubber Angel" (79) and in particular "Hart Am Rand" (81) which features a male singer, are unfortunately not on par with the first two.  Read more

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.
