Midwest psychedelic warriors Bump let their freak flags fly high on this previously unreleased gem. The Bump (as they were originally known) formed in 1969 out of the same wild Detroit scene that birthed the MC5 and Stooges. Bump’s music may have been less confrontational than some of the other Detroit bands, but they make up for it in sheer lysergic exuberance.
Their music is prime garage/psych of the era, and it didn’t take long for some in the local scene to take a chance on them. This would be in the form of a “conglomerate” who called themselves Pioneer. Pioneer provided the studio, equipment, rehearsal space, management, and record label for the guys…

Grateful Dead, live from Northrop Auditorium, University of Minnesota, Minnesota, MN October 19th 1971.
Combining psychedelia with their chilled style, as heard on 1970's Workingman's Dead and American Beauty, 1971 saw the Dead at their greatest live, performing a huge number of fine sets with extraordinary length. This live concert, from the University of Minnesota's Northrop Auditorium on October 19th that year - broadcast on KQRS-FM radio - was no exception and saw them rip through material from the length of their career up to that point, much of which had not featured on studio albums. Presented here in its entirety, accompanied with background notes and archival imagery.

Distinctly Cream-y Swedish power trio November are simply one of the best bands of their era. Using riffs that Sabbath might have thought of, but performing them with a looser, silky flow ala Free or Humble Pie, the band create music that's about the best one could imagine seventies power trio rock to be. Chase this with Toad, Power Of Zeus, Road and Samuel Prody, and you'll have heard some of the classic obscurities of heavy rock. Lyrics are in their native tongue, but that doesn't detract at all, and should keep no-one from checking this album and it's predecessor out.

Westbound's remarkable catalog reissue campaign continues apace with yet another long-lost gem from the label's forgotten corners. Album was the sole full-length release by Detroit quintet Assemblage, and although the 1971 set kicks off with a cover of the Stones' "Satisfaction"—a seemingly obligatory move for bands during this time—this record is nonetheless full of surprises. While '70s Detroit was legendary for an incredibly fertile scene that blurred the lines between soul, funk, rock, and proto-punk and was home to a disproportionate number of iconic musicians, Assemblage were among quite a few acts and players that completely slipped under the radar. Featuring just one "notable" member in the form of future Bob Seger keyboardist Robyn Robins, the other four musicians hit their career peaks with Assemblage, which, considering that Album has been out of print and not reissued since its original release, indicates exactly how high that peak was.

The band's second album is a major advance on its first, featuring superior singing, playing, and songwriting, as well as a more unified sound, without sacrificing the element of surprise in the first record. Many of the melodies and even the riffs here (check out Gary Green's first guitar flourish on "Pantagruel's Nativity") have a pretty high haunt count, and all of the musicianship displays an elegance seldom heard even in progressive circles – but the record also, amazingly enough, rocks really hard as well. Elements of hard rock and Gregorian chants mix freely and, amazingly enough, well throughout this album.

David Crosby's debut solo album was the second release in a trilogy of albums (the others being Paul Kantner's Blows Against the Empire and Mickey Hart's Rolling Thunder) involving the indefinite aggregation of Bay Area friends and musical peers that informally christened itself the Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra. Everyone from the members of the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane to Crosby's mates in CSNY, Neil Young and Graham Nash, dropped by the studio to make significant contributions to the proceedings. (Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzman, primarily, act as the ad hoc studio band, with other notables adding bits of flavor to other individual tracks.)

On Yes' first two albums, Yes (1969) and Time and a Word (1970), the quintet was mostly searching for a sound on which they could build, losing one of their original members - guitarist Peter Banks - in the process. Their third time out proved the charm - The Yes Album constituted a de facto second debut, introducing the sound that would carry them forward across the next decade or more. Gone are any covers of outside material, the group now working off of its own music from the ground up. A lot of the new material was actually simpler - in linear structure, at least - than some of what had appeared on their previous albums, but the internal dynamics of their playing had also altered radically, and much of the empty space that had been present in their earlier recordings was also filled up here…

The first time Dandelion label head John Peel heard the Way We Live, courtesy of a demo tape they mailed him, he thought someone was playing a trick on him - some accomplished superstar band, perhaps. Only when he actually met the duo did he discover that they really were as good as their demo insisted, and A Candle for Judith - itself comprising exactly the same songs as that original tape - allows the listener to share in Peel's amazement. Eight tracks find the band drifting across the musical spectrum, sometimes heavy (the opening "King Dick II" sounds almost Sabbath-like), sometimes folky, but never less than fascinating. Comparisons to Pink Floyd, one of the few bands to exercise similar disparate energies over the course of one album, are misleading, however…

Brilliant and weird formation from Levittown (Long Island, NY), mixing early progressive with hard rock, heavy psychedelia, jazz, and not scared of experimenting.
This Long Island outfit realized this sole album in 1971. A sextet whose musical skills are great. Very hard guitars and obscured lyrics are reminiscent of Black Sabbath's and Black Widow's, to cite two bands oh the same era. But this band adds one more quality: a textured femmale voices that gives more deep to the melody. There are two or three killers tracks: All of Them Witches, Sins and Iceberg; a mid tempo track: Look Again; and a ballad: Wasted Time to almost complete this hidden treasure from the early seventies.

Peter Bardens was a keyboardist and a founding member of the British progressive rock group Camel. He played organ, piano, synthesizers and mellotron, and wrote songs with Andrew Latimer. Prior to Bardens joining Andrew Latimer and co. to form Camel, he recorded two excellent solo albums for Transatlantic Records. The first of these was The Answer and this superb eponymous second album. The album included such excellent tracks as Write My Name in the Dust and did much to enhance Bardens reputation as a musician and composer. The music on both of Bardens solo albums would also map the route that he would take as a member of Camel.

Ostensibly a Dave Mason solo album, this became one of his finest when he was coupled with Cass Elliot, a stroke of genius. Elliot's involvement is, while not suspect, somewhat limited. Although she provides excellent background vocals, she tends to get a little lost in the harmony stack. Nevertheless, this is a great moment for her too. The album, though, is propelled by Mason's awesome songwriting talents, and tracks such as "On and On," "Walk to the Point," and several others bear this out. His guitar playing is some of his finest recorded work, especially the epic "Glittering Facade," where he layers acoustic and electric guitars with a scintillating effect. Elliot's "Here We Go Again" showcases her ability as a great lead vocalist, and Paul Harris provides some excellent keyboard and string arrangements, providing a glimpse of the fine work that was to follow in Stephen Stills' Manassas…

High quality all acoustic folk is what we find on Dando Shaft's 1971 release. The complicated rhythmic fabrics - woven together by intricate guitar, mandolin and violin, and joined by the expressive vocals of Polly Bolton - create unique progressive folk atmospheres that are definitely some of the best of the period. This reissue also features four bonus tracks, including the original demo for 'Spring Clog Dance', 'Lullabyl', 'Thruxton' & 'Sun Clog Dance'.
