Words Gone By

La Clave - La Clave (1973 Latin Funk Rock)

An incredible album of Latin funk -- the only-ever record from this west coast combo headed by the legendary Benny Velarde! Benny's a name that you might recognize from earlier, straighter Latin dates for Fantasy -- or for countless studio work during the 70s -- but here, he's really got a talent for a funky 70s groove -- and manages to hit a unique space that's somewhere between conventional funk, west coast Latin, and some of the hippest blacksploitation grooves of the time! The album also features some under-credited work from Lalo Schifrin -- who was tied to the project somehow (Velarde claims that the record was killed by MGM upon release because of a feud with Lalo) -- but never really fully credited in the notes. There's a definite link here with some of Schifrin's funkier soundtrack of the period -- a great blend of jazzier elements and headier 70s funk -- all served up with a tightness that has made the record one of our favorite funky treasures for years! Titles include "The Ghetto", "Latin Slide", "Who You Fooling", "Road Runner", "Soul Sauce", "Cocoa Leaf", and "Move Your Hands".

Amber - Pearls of Amber (1971 Folk Rock)

Review from Geocities:
Amber were MacLeod and Julian McAllister, both friends and contemporaries of Donovan on the early 60s St. Albans folk scene. This 10" collects the only extant studio tapes of the band, recorded in the early 70s during a period that saw the band playing regularly around London. The strapline on the sleeve reads "acoustic music that derives from folk and blues with a touch of psychedelia" which is true as far as it goes but gives too much significance to the blues, not enough to the occasional immensity of McAllister's vocal and none at all to the importance of the sitar in the mix. The lilting glory of "Sea Shell Rock Me" (appearing in two versions) is the highlight. The song is basically a folk love song which coils in around itself in time to a beautiful winding sitar line and reminds of all the possibilities music seemed to offer 30 years ago.

Band Members:
Mac Macleod (Lead Guitar, Tabla, Sitar, Percussion, Backing Vocals)
Julian McAllister (Guitar, Lead Vocals)
Ray Cooper (Tabla on Side A)

Side A:
Sea Shell Rock Me
White Angel
Swan In The Evening

Side B:
Sing On The Sunlight
Sea Shell Rock Me (Alt. Version)
Earlie In The Morning

Big thanks to Fozzy Bear

Dickens "Royal Incarnation" {France} [1969] (Psych,Guitar, Organ)

Deep inside my computer I found this masterpiece. An extermley rare record with the France group Dickens. I don't know what to compare with maybe Doors and Iron Butterfly? But these guys are heavier. And the music are sometimes really ghostly. I can imagine that they listen a lot to the underground groups in the US cause they don't sound so european accept for the song.
If someone got any information about the group tell me. If you like organ and guitar driven psych this is something for you.


Andre Chabloz - vocals
Jean-Claude Tissot - guitars
Jacques Minary - keyboards
Jean-Claude Bertin - bass
Serge Baumer - drums

Rohans Horn "II" {Sweden} [2005] (Organ and drum driven psych jam)

Last time i uploaded this sharbee was really strange so I'll try again.
Ok here we got one of the first bands in the second wave of drums and organ from Sweden. Rohans Horn (taken from the Bo Hansson song) plays great psychadelic music with drums and organ. They have often been compared with both Fläsket Brinner and H&K but these guys are more psychadelic and the songs are more jaming.
I know that the sound quality on some songs are not the best but the music are really great. You can almost smell the marijuana smoke when you listen to it.

Galère - Épilogue (French Folk Rock)

This group of four musicians including an excellent female singer with a powerful, clear voice created a show based on Ulysse's Odyssey. They recorded two titles from the show's repertoire which can be classed within the trend in French rock represented by ANGE, ATOLL and MONA LISA. Their music was based on the following: an energetic and extremely effective rhythmic section, the singer's very beautiful voice and the furious interventions of an inspired guitarist with an incisive style.

Quartz - Festival International De Jazz De Montreal (Quebec Jazz Rock)

Quartz was formed in August 1982 by percussionist Mathieu Léger and bassist Warren Stolow, both formerly of L'Orchestre Sympathique, who teamed up with Michel Martineau on clarinette and Ivanhoé Jolicoeur on trompet and flugelhorn. They played at the Festival du Grand Café in October of that year, and did a few shows in France. They were soon joined by Sylvain Provost on guitar. On July 8, 1983, at the 4th Montreal International Jazz Festival, the group won the Yamaha Award (Concours de Jazz Yamaha) for best performance. The show was recorded and is featured on the group`s only album, one of the best jazz albums to be released in the `80s. Quartz toured Quebec and the Maritimes before morphing into various other jazz ensembles during the remainder of the decade. In 1992, Mathieu Leger formed Lezimpoly, and recorded two more great jazz albums during the ensuing years.


Gandalf - Gandalf (1977, Swedish prog)

the only info i found is in swedish, not to be mixed with other gandalfs, there is some hard rocky, melodic nice tunes waits here for your ears,mm enjoy :)

Gandalfs album sägs innehålla blues-influerad progressiv rock. Gruppen ska dock inte förväxlas med den amerikanska gruppen med samma namn som förvillande nog också gett ut en självbetitlad platta (dock släppt 1968).

Jan Illes som ritat omslaget var klasskamrat med Johan Von Feilitzen (Gitarr, sång, piano) på Skrapans Gymnasium i Uppsala. Feilitzen startade senare "Hansa Band" som släppte två Lps.
