The Last Stage is a compilation of unreleased Budgie tracks, mostly from the early-to-mid eighties. Many of these tracks were intended to be released on the followup to 1982's Deliver Us From Evil, a followup that never saw the light of day. There was another track that was supposedly meant to be on the album, it was called "Beautiful Lies", unfortunately it never made it to "The Last Stage"
Recorded at the Rockfield Studios, Monmouth and Woodside Studios, Monmouth between 1979 & 1985.

Rococo - The Firestorm And Other Love Songs (1978)

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

ROCOCO were one of the most exciting rock bands performing in London in the 70’s and were usually categorised-as everything had to be in those days-as a progressive rock group, a genre well represented on “The Firestorm And Other Love Songs”, the second album from Angel Air Records which was recorded in the period 1973 to 1978. Released a year after their debut album, the critically acclaimed “Run For The Wildfire” (SJPCD337), the second collection also features the band’s lighter side, further revealing the diversity and range of styles and the ability to switch from one to another with ease, that made it difficult for record labels to figure them out. The band, featuring Roy Shipston, Ian Raines, Rod Halling, Clive Edwards and John “Rhino” Edwards, had three singles released in that era but no LPs, although they recorded more than enough material for two albums. They had singles “Wildfire” and “Ultrastar” out on Decca’s “progressive” Deram label and “Follow That Car” on Mountain Records, but both declined to take up options because the follow-up “45s” the band presented were too much of a contrast to the original songs. Even before their second single release in 1976, Rococo were frequently referred to as “the best unsigned band in London”. Now, with today’s de-classifications and mish-mash of music styles, at least one record company understands what Rococo were about. Fans of rock and pop music that saw them then-and those who have heard the band since-always did.

Bob Welch - French Kiss (1977)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+Covers | No Log | 245 mb+3% recovery

Review by Mike DeGagne (
Bob Welch's debut album saw him cash in on three Top 40 singles, refurbishing the romantic "Sentimental Lady" (originally from Fleetwood Mac's Bare Trees album) and taking it to number eight on the charts, with radio-tailored efforts like "Ebony Eyes" and "Hot Love, Cold World" following right behind. With not much success coming from Welch's short stint with his own Paris project, he decided to hire Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, and Christine McVie to help him out with his first solo venture. Spotlighting Welch's vocal powderiness, French Kiss ends up being a bunch of approachable soft pop tunes that display enough eager guitar work to keep them afloat. Presenting a sturdy feel for Welch on his own, tracks like "Easy to Fall," "Carolene," and "Lose My Heart" are equivalent to the hits in their familiar '70s rock formula, but cuts like "Dancin' Eyes" and "Danchiva" find Welch running out of room. Two years later, Welch released his second album, entitled Three Hearts, which gave him his last Top 40 hit with "Precious Love," but the album itself is noticeably weaker and less enthusiastic sounding than his first.

Fat Mattress - ST (1969)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 337 mb+3% recovery

Tapestry of Delights:
This band burst onto the scene with considerable publicity in 1968 on account of Noel Redding being the bassist with The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Landon was a former session singer and also one of The Flowerpot Men. His extensive vocal range gave the band's music much of its flavour. They issued three singles which met with no success in the UK, although Magic Lanterns was a No. 1 hit in Holland and their druggy music featured in these singles and on album tracks like Mr. Moonshine may be of interest to readers.
Noel Redding left the band half way through the second album to go to the States to front a US/UK band called Road. He later formed the Noel Redding Band in 1975. Redding's departure meant disintegration for the band. Leverton joined Juicy Lucy and later became a member of Savoy Brown's Boogie Brother's with Eric Dillon.

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 496 mb+3% recovery

Kicking off with Warren Haynes' unmistakable and masterful guitar over gospel-soaked piano, the title track to the dynamic new album 'Man In Motion' functions as a mission statement for the legendary musician and his signature brand of rock, blues and soul. Driving horn blasts and powerful organ punctuate some of the most soulful guitar playing and singing that Haynes has ever recorded.
'Man In Motion' is also a snapshot of a creatively restless musician who is constantly in artistic motion himself. "Musicians are students for life. We have to continually take new approaches," affirms Haynes. It's not Haynes' first foray as a soul man, however. "Soul music was my first love," says Haynes. "The first LPs I had growing up in Asheville [NC] were greatest hits compilations from Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, James Brown, Junior Walker, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Wilson Pickett, and The Supremes." 'Man in Motion' contains all original Haynes songs with the addition of original Stax recording artist William Bell's hit "Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday".

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.

VINYL RIP | FLAC TRACKS+Covers | 264 mb+3% recovery

Short Cut Draw Blood is the third studio album by the British musician Jim Capaldi. Released by Island Records in 1975, it marked a major turning point in Capaldi's career: It was his first album recorded after the breakup of Traffic, and more importantly, it was his commercial breakthrough. While Capaldi's first two solo albums had been moderately successful in the USA (and in fact, in the USA Short Cut Draw Blood was his least successful album thus far, with both the album itself and the single "Love Hurts" barely scraping into the Billboard charts), Short Cut Draw Blood saw him entering the charts in several other countries for the first time. This was particularly evident in his native United Kingdom; the single "It's All Up to You", released a year before the album, became his first top 40 hit there, only to be overshadowed the following year by his cover of "Love Hurts", which went all the way to number 4.
Rolling Stone called the album slightly uneven but a promising step forward. Their review approved of both the session musicians and the arrangements, and was particularly complimentary towards his cover of "Love Hurts", saying "he brings a sense of pain very different from Roy Orbison's original."

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...

Review by James Chrispell (
Fierce Heart reunited Jim Capaldi with Steve Winwood and the results are warm to the heart as well as pleasing to the ears. With help from Van Morrison as well, Capaldi put out an album that showed renewed faith in rock after having been living in Brazil absorbing various influences there and raising a family. Winwood's recent smash hits influenced Capaldi to write more upbeat as well as personal songs, highlighted by "That's Love" and "Tonight You're Mine." But whereas Winwood got into the Top Ten with his songs, Capaldi barely made into the Top 200. That was a shame, for there are a lot of comparisons here that should have been explored. For Winwood fans, this album was like an extra helping. For Capaldi fans, it was the main course.

Jim Capaldi - Whale Meat Again (1974)

FLAC TRACKS | NO CUE | NO LOG | Covers | 259 mb+3% recovery

Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine:
Whale Meat Again, Jim Capaldi's second solo album, appeared in 1974, just before Traffic released their final album, When the Eagle Flies, and while it, like Oh How We Danced before it, has appearances from his Traffic colleagues Steve Winwood and Rebop Kwaku Baah, it feels like a break from his band in ways that his debut never did. True, it's not a drastic break, but where Traffic was getting jazzier with each album, Capaldi kept things down to earth, relying heavily on the blues whether it was in the Plastic Ono grind of the title track, or in the sighing dobros of "Yellow Sun," a lengthy jam that's all about groove, not what's being played. Oh How We Danced also maintained a groovy, mellow feel but the emphasis there was clearly on the songs, and here it's more about mood: not the instrumental interplay, but ratcheting up the soulfulness in the performances and singing, giving this album a funkier, open feel that lingers longer than the songs.

He found a young Sammy Hagar (listed as Sam in the credits on the album sleeve) ready to rock and completely capable of handling those duties.
This is a typical LP clocking in at a fraction less than 30 minutes, which is a shame really, because every track oozes with primal raw energy. This is the kind of heart-pumping fist waving sound you that will leave wanting for more every time you hear it. The whole idea behind what Audio Fidelity does is to maintain the original album's integrity while enhancing the sound for optimal listening pleasure so you get what came out in 1973 but with a much better sound. Bill Church (bass) and Danny Carmassi (drums) was a good match for the Montrose guitar groove and they proved to be a solid rhythm section on every track, giving Montrose solid ground to lay his meaty power chords on. This does sound terrific so get ready to crank that stereo as loud as you can stand it, this is music made to play loud! Ronnie Montrose really cut loose on this album and proved he could play with the best of them. He would continue to show the world why he was one of the best guitar players around throughout the years with more great music but nothing ever seemed to match this. Neither this session nor anything like it would ever happen again unfortunately, as egos got in the way to cause tensions and finally a break up.
Its too bad things started fall apart for this band into the second album, which is why this remains the best recording Ronnie Montrose put out under the Montrose heading. When you hear "Rock Candy" you will remember why you loved this album so much. Eight tracks of some of the most powerful guitar rock you will ever hear is on this album. Its hot sweet and sticky so "Make It Last" because once is not enough for this music.
