Chilliwack "St" {Canada} [1970] (Heavy-Rock Progressive)

Ohhh no not a boring north american heavy rock band again! You think, but I think you should give this band a chance. They mix some kind of Heavy rock with a slightley Jethro Tull feeling one some tracks. I get a feeling that they didn't know what kind of music they wanted to play. Some tracks have flute and saxophone and some have riffing guitars. How ever a really good album my favourit tracks are "Sundown" and " Seventeen" the song "I got you" have marvelous guitar solo and a cool cembalo and organ ackompained. So please enjoy this legendary Parrot label release. This is their first album Chilliwack is a little bit confusing becuse both their first and second album are self titled.
Btw this is a vinyl rip just so you know.

Bazaar - "Live" {Denmark} [1978] (world/prog folk)

from a review at rym;
"The first album from the little know Danish act is an eclectic mix of diverse music styles. Flagged as a Danish folk act, Bazaar could be a lot of things. There are folk influences a plenty here but it is a folk drawn from Northern European as well as Eastern European influences. In fact the band draw heavily from the folk scenes of countries like Bulgaria and Turkey, but play with a twist of Latin music and hints of rock, though they do so with a conservative approach. Bazaar Live, their debut release, is a double album which includes both live and, I think, studio live performances. Recording live in the studio allows the band to retain a chemistry in the improvisations of the music, which keeps fresh and alive. So what we have here with regard to instrumentation includes a mixture of clarinet, bassoon, organ, guitar, timbales, bongos etc... played by the Peter Bastian, Anders Koppel, Mehmet Ozan and Flemming Quist Møller. Much of the album was recorded live in a small hall in Christiania in Denmark. Christiania has a certain notoriety. Founded, well they actually just broke into the unused army base and took over, by a bunch of hippies in the early seventies and is basically an alternative society, while the use of drugs there is quite liberal to say the least, and its inhabitants are something of a law unto themselves. Though in recent times the law has been keeping close tabs on the goings on there. The eclectic mix of the music and free flowing dope must have made for a great night, the album swings and flows with a gentle humour here and there, and all around the music is packed with tightly arranged instrumentation. Fans of diverse folk would be advised to pick up Bazaar Live, and as a piece of useless information; It was engineered by Flemming Rasmussen, the man who would go to produce Metallica's Master Of Puppets album in 1986."

This 2lp set album has released at 78 and reissued at sometime in 90s, It has a little something from everthing, that everyone may find something interesting. Listening this album is like travelling.

Total Music Association "Walpurgis" - free kraut rock - 1971

hi folks,
here is another elusive morsel from the ever surprising Krautrock bunch.
The only lp by TMA presented an original free jazz fusion a la kraut, a bit like an outrageous Annexus Quam.
It has been totally ignored for years, so I guess it's time it gets the attention it deserves.

Third Ear Band "Abelard and heloise" [1970] (Progressive- Experimental, Classic, Medieval, Drone)

Strange album that mix medieval elements with progressive and then add a drone feeling (maybe the first real drone album?).
Some information:

Abelard & Heloise
was the first of two soundtracks to have been commissioned from Third Ear Band; the other was forRoman Polanski's Macbeth. Abelard & Heloise was recorded in 1970 for a film made for release on German television based on the great medieval love story. Like most of their work, this album features the improvised chamber music Third Ear Band developed during the 1970s. While this album is heavy on the hypnotic drone, there are several nice melodic improvisatory sequences, especially on tracks two and five. It's also worth noting that they go don't period with their music for this period film. Simply as a part of a genre, this soundtrack departs significantly from what one expects from a film score, ranging into territory shaped byMick Jagger's work for Kenneth Anger. More than simple counterpoint to the visual information, Third Ear Band seems to have created an independent sonic world, one that would draw the narrative into its very dark space. This album was re-released on the Blueprint label (BP310 CD) in 1999.
