Rare Danish hippie folk/psych outfit from 1971, with great long tracks and beautiful vocal harmonies with a stoned feeling all over. Excellent musicians with flute, congas, percussion, electric and acoustic guitars.
The band is formed by members of Green Grass, the legendary Tomrerclaus and Youngflowers.
Niels Skousen used Danish lyrics on all his albums. Herfra Hvor Vi Står (1971) was recorded as a duo with Peter Ingemann but the complete line up is...
Niels Skousen - guitars, vocals, harmonica
Knud Bjorno - flute, sax, vocals
Bjorn Uglebjerg - percussion, vocals
Peter Ingemann - bass, vocals
Tømrerclaus - electric guitar, bowed bass
Scented Gardens Of The Mind, has diferent line up . I belive the back cover.
One of my fave Danish records!!
01 - Isabel
02 - Svaert At Na Frem
03 - Fodbold
04 - Kaptajnen
05 - Knud Lavard
06 - Herfra Hvor VI Star
A REAL GEM !!
Nothing in the net from the collectors !?!?! Even the RATE YOUR MUSIC site, hasn't something for this lp !! Ebay, Popsike...nothing !!The only informations that you can find, appears at his own site on MYSPACE http://www.myspace.com/bidoli
I rate it very high .
Maurizio "Angus" Bitoli are From Italy (50years old now as they said). "London" lp has originally released as a tape (early 90's I think). Finaly released in lp at 1996 from the tapes . The sound isn't good . It's one of the worst soundrecording ever heard !! The problem is bigger because, the vinyl is very cheap, a bad press .
But nothing can destroy the amazing music of Angus !!!! This lp remind me the story of MARIANI , a lost gem with bad sound & high colectable after decades. Maybe some of you known Angus as guitar player of FINGERNAILS. .............................Side A............................Side B
.......................................I like this guy !!!!
Amazing !! Highly Recommended!!
Get It !!
If you found 1 track that not you like it, let me know it and I'll be shoot down this blog.
WOBBLE JAGGLE JIGGLE is a psychedelic band from Brighton which get's it's inspiration both from the present and the past.The two big highlights of this band are the strong and sensuous voice of singer Caroline Davey(the grace of GRACE SLICK, combined with the power of JANIS JOPLIN) and the fabulous guitarplay of Robert Chambers, which shows obvious influences of legends like JIMI HENDRIX and SYD BARRETT. Since 1990, Have existed in Brighton, playing gigs around the south of England and parts of Belgium. For more info visit http://www.myspace.com/wobblejagglejiggle

The voice of Caroline is amazing !!!!! This lp from 1994 it's also amazing !!! One of my fave records from 90's. Where is Caroline now? The only informations that I know is that, Carolin
also sang in Cherokee Mist for a while and recorded at least one album(unreleased).The best music CHEROKEE MIST recorded was with Caroline Davey from WOBBLE JAGGLE JIGGLE sharing the vocals with John Redfern. This was going to be released as an LP on the Tangerine label, until the master tapes dissapeared? She also sang for Mandragora on a track called"This is..."on their 1994 album"Temple Ball".......................I love you Caroline !!!!!!

Four Members of the Greek band Purple Overdose (VASILIS KAPANIKIS, ANDREAS ANDRIOPOULOS, HRISTOFOROS TRIADAFILOPOULOS, STAVROS ELEFTHERIOU) plus LETINA PISPINI(organ) as ΚΑΛΕΙΔΟΣΚΟΠΟΙΟ(KALEIDOSCOPE) , realise this lp with title 0+∞ (Zero & Infinity) at 2005. ONLY 100 COPIES. Recording in 3 days at 1998 . Selting to music poems of Kostas Karyotakis .Lp has many inserts & a book with the poems that include in the record
Kostas Karyotakis (Greek: Κώστας Καρυωτάκης, October 30, 1896 – July 20, 1928) is considered one of the most representative Greek poets of the 1920s and one of the first poets to use iconoclastic themes in Greece. His poetry conveys a great deal of nature, imagery and traces of expressionism and surrealism. The majority of Karyotakis' contemporaries viewed him in a dim light throughout his lifetime without a pragmatic accountability for their contemptuous views; for after his suicide,the majority began to revert to the view that he was indeed a great poet. He had a significant, almost disproportionately progressive influence on later Greek poets........KOSTAS KARIOTAKIS 1896 - 1928
Rare as Hell
The Minnesota music scene of the 60’s was an exciting and vibrant time. Barry Thomas Goldberg and Gary Paulak started their first band, “The Shambles”, as teenagers in 1966. That year they had their first recording session at the legendary Dove Studios in Bloomington, Minnesota. Peter Steinberg (“Flight Reaction”, Calico Wall) and Dale Menten (“Run, Run, Run”, The Gestures), of Candy Floss Productions, were very impressed with Goldberg and Paulak’s writing talents and made them partners in the original writing and producing team of Candy Floss Productions. Candy Floss had many regional and national releases. The Batch rose from the ashes of Candy Floss and consisted of Barry Thomas Goldberg, Gary Paulak, Arne Fogel, Jay Lee and Whip Lane. The Batch continued recording many hours worth of material in various Twin Cities’ studios but only released one single, “Golden Sun/Hot Summer Nights” (Groove Soup, 1972; Unfortunately, only a handful of these 45s still exist).
The Batch called it quits after years of being on the road touring Mid-America. But these are the raw and vital recordings of a band at the very moment of finding their freedom and independence. This special limited vinyl edition contains priceless rarities for collectors of 60’s and early 70’s Mid-American Rock ‘n’ Roll. Some months ago, The Batch released 21 previously unreleased songs through their own HIJ/BECCA label (which we proudly distribute in Europe) in a CD with the title "Transistor". From all those songs their more psychedelic efforts, present in this 11-track limited vinyl edition.
All of the tracks recorded between 1968 and early 1970 and were home-recordings made on 2-tracks tape-recorders. All of the included songs have been remastered and carefuly restored by the original master-tapes (some also have the original song-length and different mixing) and have a much much better audible result than the "Transistor" CD. From the garage-pop tune of "Ha la la" to the mind-blowing psychedelic "Drifting", from the acid underground sounds of "Wait 'til tomorrow" to the heavy "Untangle your mind" and from the guitar-pyrotechnics of "Freedy Coolchick" to the Dead-like "So sad" this BATCH album is a must for every psychohead and soon it will find its place between the lost US psychedelic jewels.

A collection of the bands rare 45s, along with five more, until now unreleased studio recordings, plus three home demos. Dateline 1966 - the Pacific Northwest of the USA - a hotbed for numerous local and regional bands following the tradition of the renowned North West Fratrock of the Kingsmen or the uncompromising Rock & Roll of The Sonics and Wailers. Not so the United Travel Service. They were sadly overlooked at the time but are now revered for their two brilliant, killer folkadelic 45 releases "Wind And Stone b/w Drummer Of Your Mind" and "Gypsy Eyes b/w Echo Of You". The UTS were mainly influenced by the San Francisco scene, Garage Rock and the Byrds. Their high quality repertoire, written by guitarist Ben Hoff and produced by New Tweedy Brothers producer Rick Keefer, would have made a classic local psychedelic album if released back then.
Here is the long overdue legacy of one of the Northwests finest psychedelic bands.Track List

From the mid to late sixties, quite a good number of bands were borrowing elements of Eastern music to add a little mystery and exotica to their sound. Some examples of this trend include the Kinks' '' See my friends'' , the Beatles' '' Norwegian wood'' , the Byrds' '' Eight miles high'' or the Rolling Stones' '' Paint it black'' . Less known than the aforementioned acts, but acknowledged in some circles as masters of the form were the Cedars (also known as Sea- ders). Only, for them it wasn't a case of flirting with foreign culture - they tapped right into the source in their own backyard. Formed in Beirut, Lebanon, around 1964 and originally known as the Top 5, by 1966 they became the Sea- ders (or Cedars!), and recorded a total of 10 tracks until their end in 1968. Two of them were never released, and unavailable. The other eight are now here altogether for the first time, with great remastered sound. The blend of occidental and Eastern music that they delivered is simply amazing.....the classic '' For your information'' (big hit in Turkey at the time as well) is astounding , so are some others as '' Thanks a lot'' or '' Hide if you want to hide''

From Acid Archives
From NY , produced by Herman Gimbel (Sacred Mushroom) and Ornin Keepnews. Musically, it's a decent early 70's hard rock with organ & fuzz guitar. All material was penned by the leder Carlo Mastrangelo (who also played with Dion and the Belmonts). It's probably one of the few hard rock albums which features a kazoo solo!
Don't confused with PULSE on Poison Ring Label!
