1969 US FJ MC MAHON-SPIRIT OF THE GOLDEN JUICE
ACID FOLK ULTRA RARE GEM!!!!
LABEL:ACCENT CAT.NO.: ACS 5049
LISTEN FULL LP HERE:
        
Originally released in 1969 on the Accent label. Pressed in a tiny quantity and scattered around the California coastline, Spirit of The Golden Juice has become a top item among collectors and folk/psych lovers alike. Its a spell-binding blend of heartfelt singer-songwriter emotion and spiraling acoustic guitar accompaniment, standing up proudly alongside heroes like Hoyt Axton, Kris Kristofferson, and Fred Neil, but with a raw and adventurous spirit all its own.
As his sole musical release, F.J. McMahon created one of the most emotionally compelling and cohesive albums ever.

G.O.D. Records Presents The Gem Of The Week - Velvet underground Scepter Studios April 1966

1966 US THE ULTRA RARE NORMAN DOLPH'S VELVET UNDERGROUND SCEPTER STUDIO SESSION APRIL 25 1966 ACETATE NOW AGAIN ON EBAY FOR $ 80,000!!!


The rare April 1966 Scepter Studios recordings captured on acetate featuring early, alternate versions of songs later issued on The Velvet underground & Nico available now!
Norman Dolph's original acetate recording of the Scepter Studios material contains several recordings that would make it onto the final album, though many are different mixes of those recordings and three are different takes entirely. The acetate was cut on April 25, 1966, shortly after the recording sessions.
It would resurface decades later when it was bought by a collector of Montreal, Canada in 2002 at a flea market in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City for a few coins. It was then sold on E-Bay from that collector for over $25k.
LISTEN TO THE WHOLE ACTUAL ACETATE HERE:


EXCUSE ANY SKIPS,BUMPS,OR HISH BUT IT'S THE REAL THING PLAYING!!!
 


Although ten songs were recorded during the Scepter sessions, only nine appear on the acetate cut. Dolph recalls "There She Goes Again" being the missing song (and, indeed, the version of "There She Goes Again" that appears on the final LP is attributed to the Scepter Studios session).
This recording represents the first studio session of The Velvet Underground at Scepter Studios in New York City during April 1966, these tracks represent the original versions of such legendary songs as Heroin, Venus In Furs and Waiting For The Man, before they were re-recorded at TTG Studios in Los Angeles and remixed for release on Verve in 1967 as The Velvet Underground And Nico.

ROCK PROG OPERA,CONCEPT ALBUM WITH THE GROUP RUTH AND THE NATIONAL GREEK OPERA.
LABEL: POLYDOR CAT. NO.:20421027
LISTEN FULL LP HERE:
After the split of "Poll", Kostas Tournas went on to record a great progressive-psychedelic concept solo album. A major progressive folk-rock opus with no distinction into separate tracks; it's a autobiographic concept album. Tournas wrote and arranged it for a large orchestra -something unbelievable, speaking for Greece, back in the early 70's- and a rock group (RUTH). He provided the vocals and the guitars by himself.

G.O.D. Records Presents The Gem Of The Week - Music Emporium 1969

1969 USA MUSIC EMPORIUM-S/T PSYCHEDELIC ULTRA RARE DELIGHT!!
LABEL:SENTINEL CAT.NO.:PC 69001
LISTEN FULL LP WITH BONUS TRACKS HERE:
Very rare lp recorded in the begining as a demo,but Sentinel decided to go along and issue it in 200 copies,most of whom got lost and a 45 in promo and plain edition to forwarn the market,but nothing came up and the lp got lost in obscurity.So originals,if found,change hands at $4.500 nowadays!!!
The band didn't like the issue and thought they ought to re-master the songs but Sentinel felt it was fine,sth i agree with.

Initially called The CAGE, this trippy West Coast psych band from the 60's were quite sophisticated for their time. They started off in 1968 when keyboardist Bill Cosby joined forces with guitarist Dave Padwin and two female musicians, namely bassist Carolyn Lee and drummer Dora Wahl. All four were either classically trained or seasoned club veterans, Cosby himself being a UCLA music major. Evolving smack in the middle of the flower power era, they played their blistering rockers and wispy melodies quite convincingly, borrowing from jazz, classical music, avant-garde and rock. On the psychedelic side, they were definitely more song oriented than, say, early PINK FLOYD; although they did pour a mean dose of organ on their self-titled LP, released in 1969. Unfortunately, a year later Cosby got drafted and the band broke up.

Their album is a fascinating testimony of a different time and place. Highly organ dominated, it has just about everything one would expect from a late 60's album: driving rhythms, heavy guitar riffs, trippy Farfisa organ and cool, groovy male/female vocals by Cosby and especially Lee who delivers her druggy, cosmic lyrics with style. Their solos are concise and they know how to lock into a groove without jamming aimlessly, as did so many bands of that era.
