Various Artists - Heavy Christmas (1971)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+Covers | 296 mb+3% recovery

One of the odder relics of the Krautrock heyday of the early '70s, Heavy Christmas found itself reissued in 1997 as part of the overall revival of the said sound. Originally released in 1971, it featured both new and traditional Christmas songs interpreted by seven different acts, most of whom contribute two tracks each. None of the featured acts are among the upper tier of Krautrock acts -- and it would have been quite something to hear the likes of Can, Kraftwerk, and Guru Guru do Christmas songs! -- but the end results have their high points. If any bands would be points of inspiration, Amon Duul II and Faust would probably be them; most of the acts here have the nutty playfulness of the first, touched here and there by the sheer cut-up chaos of the second. Compared to both, though, groups like Libido and Virus are much more straightforward. Libido itself gets in two of the representative songs: "Evolution," starting with a weird, ragged chorus and getting in some heavy drum slams and crazed guitar wah-wah action; and the rockin' good times of "Come on Everybody," apparently the album's single. Virus has its own fine winner, "X-Mas Submarine," with a stuttering keyboard line and fantastic guitar soloing its high points. Joy Unlimited's contribution is a doozy, a lengthy number called "All Heaven and Earth Are Silent" which sounds like a mix of stoner folk, pomp-rock instrumentals, and a strung-out Up With People. In perhaps the most entertaining trip-out, Dies Irae rips through an instrumental version of "Silent Night" with a snarling electric guitar taking the totally unlikely lead, alternating between full propulsion and calmer moments. Solo act Marcel delivers "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" with a nicely airy vocal, while his backing musicians crank the amps and add violin to boot.

Majority One - Rainbow Rocking Chair [The defenitive collection 1969-1971] (2005)

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

 On some obscure releases of the early '70s, Majority One wrote and recorded material in the manner of some of the more foppish late-'60s British psychedelic pop, though the style had been out of fashion for a couple of years or so. The group evolved out of the U.K. band the Majority, who issued eight singles on Decca between 1965 and 1968 without reaching the British charts. After a lot of personnel turnover and a spell backing British singer Barry Ryan, the group moved to France and issued one final single as the Majority, "Charlotte Rose," though this was only released in some European territories. In 1970, still based in France, they changed their name to Majority One, issuing a few singles in 1970 and 1971 and a self-titled album in 1971, though the latter only came out in France and Holland at the time. With some similarities to the more lightweight efforts of the late-'60s Beatles, Bee Gees, and Moody Blues, Majority One's efforts passed unnoticed in their homeland, though their 1971 single "Because I Love" made the Top 20 in Holland, also becoming a hit in Italy and Brazil. Majority One also released some tracks under the names Black Label and Rocky Cabbage, but disbanded in the summer of 1971. Much of the material issued by Majority One, including some of the tracks released under the names the Majority, Black Label, and Rocky Cabbage, was assembled for the 2006 CD compilation Rainbow Rockin' Chair: The Definitive Collection 1969-1971.

Patto - Roll 'em Smoke 'em Put Another Line Out (1972)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 262 mb+3% recovery

"Three albums and out, Patto (named after vocalist Mike Patto) were highly regarded on the British rock scene in the '70s. The key point of the band was probably the superb guitar work of the eminently flexible Ollie Halsall, a performer whose session work was highly prized, even though the guitarist seemed hesitant to step into the spotlight. Patto performed a stately mix of jazz-rock with a little bit of blues. Following the breakup of the band, Halsall moved on to play with Tempest while Patto joined Spooky Tooth for Mirror. Patto and Halsall came back together in Boxer in 1975, though Halsall remained for only a single album, with Patto remaining the sole founding member by the following album."

Goddo - Goddo (1976)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG | No Covers | 256 mb+3% recovery

Like many debut albums, the self-titled opening salvo from Toronto hard rock trio Goddo is the band's least polished effort. Not that 1977's Goddo is inferior; it just doesn't offer the musical craftsmanship and sonic ingenuity of the band's later work. But what it lacks in presentation it makes up for in power, propulsion, and plenty of '70s hedonism and ego. Laying out the ground rules the band would follow for much of its career, Goddo delivers a hard-rocking set of smirking fantasies about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. "Drive Me Crazy" and "Twelve Days" are choogling boogie-rock odes to foreplay and touring; "Let That Lizard Loose" celebrates groupies; "The Bus Driver Blues" thumbs its nose at a former drummer who quit the band for a day job. The nudge-nudge lyrics are matched by the musical aplomb of drummer Doug Inglis' in-the-pocket wallop, guitarist Gino Scarpelli's Jimi Hendrix and John Lee Hooker-inspired licks, and singer/bassist Greg Godovitz's glammy hamminess and endearingly hoarse vocals. Godovitz wipes the grin off his mug for the overblown power ballad "I'm Losing You" and the superior "Under My Hat," a Latin-tinged slow burner. But his humility is short-lived; by the end of the adrenalized rock-dream closer "Hard Years," he's crowing, "this band's moving on an uphill ride. Believe it." Goddo obviously did, and that's a big part of this album's charm. It was reissued in 2001 by Canadian label Bullseye.  allmusic

The Groundhogs - Live At Leeds '71 (2002)

EAC | CD Image | WV+CUE+LOG+Covers | 240 mb+3% recovery

Although this nugget clocks in at only a hair over half-an-hour, it reveals the Groundhogs at what was arguably the crest of the Brit blues power trio's creative peak. The band featured the strong sonic personalities of Tony T.S. McPhee (guitar/vocals), Peter Cruickshank (bass) and Ken Pustelnik. Their straight-ahead heavy rock was more than a simple extension of 12-bar blues as their penchant for incendiary improvisation and strong original material rate among their assets. Live at Leeds '71 was recorded on April 13, 1971 as they opened up a series of U.K. concerts for the Rolling Stones. According to urban legend, this live set was documented and pressed in a very limited edition at the behest of Mick Jagger, and as a professional courtesy of sorts. As the Stones were taping themselves, Jagger commissioned engineer/producer Glyn Johns to record the Groundhogs and press up copies for friends and promotional use. The band had been around for several years and initially gained notoriety as the backing combo for a few of John Lee Hooker's mid-'60s British tours. The partial set list here indicates that the Groundhogs were supporting not only the Stones, but also their fifth long-player, Split (1971). Both the aggressive opener "Cherry Red" as well as "Split, Pt. 1" -- the first movement of the title track -- are given open-throttled workouts. The extemporaneous interaction allows them to explore a bit more behind McPhee's blazing leads and recall equal measures of Deep Purple and Grand Funk Railroad. They also reach back to their previous album, Thank Christ for the Bomb (1970), for both "Garden" as well as a fiery, albeit abbreviated " Eccentric Man...the Story of a Man Who...." Sadly, the proceedings fade out, just as they do on the promo vinyl acetate from which the audio was derived. That said, the official CD releases sound infinitely better than the heavily bootlegged and traded copy of a surface-noise-laden disc. Adding insult to injury, the unauthorized version was also mastered at the wrong speed. As the Groundhogs did not record many of their live shows during this seminal era, Live at Leeds '71 stands as a unique timepiece of an equally distinctive band. [allmusic]

This excellent album by the US band was released in 1970 on Fillmore label and contains solid and very original dose of very energetic progressive rock with some jazz and heavy rock influences, The Hammer's music is characterized by interplays between intensive electric guitar and various keyboard instruments (inc. piano, Hammond organ and electric piano) on top of complex and sometimes very heavy rhythm section - with no brass instruments at all. Their sole LP is really difficult to describe, perhaps as an eclectic & high-octane combination of Brian Auger & The Trinity, early Santana, Spooky Tooth and Grand Funk!

At the helm is none other that the legendary Goeff Emerick, who engineered the Fab Four's definitive album in 1967, and brings and exciting authenticity to the celebration. Cheap Trick genuinely infuse their brand of Beatlesque power pop into a live tribute that pays homage to their musical influences, by capturing the essence of an album that changed music history.

Re-upload by request: Bull Angus - Free For All (1972)

EAC |  FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 269 mb+3% recovery
   Known primarily to late 60s/early 70s vinyl fanatics, Bull Angus (a name inspired by the bull farms near a barn they’d rented for rehearsals) was a psychedelic blues band with significant prog leanings. Best evidence has them forming sometime in the late 1960s in Poughkeepsie, New York, by guitarists Larry LaFalce and Dino Paolillo. The duo was soon joined by Geno Charles (Drums), Frankie Previte (Vocals), Ron Piccolo (Keyboards) and Lenny Venditti (bass). LaFalce and Venditti were formerly with NY bands The Pyramid, Previte had been with The Oxford Watchband, and Piccolo a member of The Revells. With Vinny Testa producing, the group released a self-titled debut in 1971 on Mercury Records but poor marketing and sales meant that the band only issued one more album, 1972’s “Free For All”, before Bull Angus split up (although Previte will forever be a footnote in pop history for penning “The Time of My Life” for the Dirty Dancing soundtrack!).
   It is odd that Bull Angus didn’t make a larger impact at the time; their brand of post-psychedelic heavy blues successfully crossed between jam-happy Southern Rock and budding Progressive Rock. The material was often compared to heavyweights like Uriah Heep, Atomic Rooster, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple as well as homegrown Grand Funk Railroad, but the band’s dexterity and large roster meant they could occasionally leave hardrock behind and dabble in early Crimson-style folk. Despite all this, Bull Angus never earned a cult following and has remained underappreciated to this day.
