    Look here. They're mimicking their On the Road with my Bag in the streets of some German city for a German TV station.

    Best regards!

    Air Mail, Borriquito, 1971, Europa Germany, E 468

    Air Mail was an alias for several German Rock and Pop Bands on low budget label Europa. They had to produce so-called "vocal productions" for the benefit of Mr. Miller for some bucks. These tracks were spread onto various LP editions with popular topics. The rock music aficionado didn't buy these poor non-originals.
    Ordinary European holidaymakers liked this silly summer-hit "Borriquito" from Spain. They also loved that dumb chart hit "Mamy Blue". As they had no more money left after summer holiday in Teneriffa or Rimini, they grabbed this cheap one. Later they noticed: oh no, this is not the same recording as we used to dance to in Mallorca. It's a bluff package. As consequence, these neglected LPs soon vent into secondhand shops, where they stayed for many decades.Nobody liked them.
    Most of the songs on these "cheapo" LPs were early exercises done by German "beat" bands or "Krautrock" groups. The funny thing: these early recordings show their versatility.
    Air mail is a mixture of tracks by "Petards", "Asterix", Carsten Bohn alias Bert Brac, "Lucifer's Friend", "German Bonds" et al.
    So let's skip 3 needless tracks and listen to a pretty "Lucifer's Friend" ballad "All night long" A6, sung by John Lawton. John Lawton also contributes vocals to "Carry me Back" B3. Listen to "Twelve months and a day" B6 by "Asterix" (pre-"Lucifer's Friend"). "Lady Ann" B5 is typical early "Lucifer's Friend"-style as presented on their first 1970 album. Remember the tragedy: John Lawton had to earn his bread for many years as a member of those silly "Les Humphries singers", who produced the preferred popular music for the common German listener. Horror!

    Beatles, Let It Be ...Naked, 2003, Apple EU, 595438 0 2

    Get back to the remastered and remixed version of the original session tapes, presented in a form which is reportedly closer to Paul McCartney's vision of how the LP should have sounded: stripped bare of all orchestral and other such embellishments which were added by Phil Spector. Additional 7" 33 rpm single "Fly on the wall", a unique insight into the Beatles at work in rehearsal and in the studio during January 1969.

    OK ... some background.

    I grew up in SoCal in the 50's/60's. Hot summers were spent at the beach ...fishing in the AM ... Surfing in the afternoons.

    Dick Dale was IT.

    Have since then always enjoyed SURF MUSIC ... it's fairly simple, but resonates with me.

    This 8 minute track was probably Dick's magnum opus. The interesting part (besides his guitar) is that the cut uses two drummers and that seems to intensify the persuasion. It's always on my mobile DAP.

    Lucky Peterson, Lucky Strikes!, 1989, Alligator USA, AL 4770

    RIP.
    He died 55 years old after his 50 years stage-jubilee last year. How come? Willie Dixon was producer of his debut when Lucky was a "five-year-old genius". A superb organ and guitar player.

    The Subdudes, Same, 1989, Atlantic Germany, 782 015-1

    "New Orleans is about good music, good food and good times..." (liner notes on back cover by Earl King). Agreed! A bright spot in the keyboard-synthie-junk of the 80ies. Ein Lichtblick der 80er Jahre.

    Tommy Flanagan, Tokyo Recital, 1975, Pablo Germany, 2310 724

    "UMMG" (Upper Manhattan Medical Group) A2, a composition by Billy Strayhorn (1915-1967).
    Gratitude to his doctor: In 1964, Strayhorn fell seriously ill and was in fact diagnosed with cancer. He dedicated this tune to his doctor. This composition shows a late Strayhorn with a fresh approach. He was clearly influenced by bebop and cool jazz in this last period of his work, and with UMMG, reminiscing of bebop tunes like Gillespie’s Woody’n You from 1942, Strayhorn presented a state-of-the-art interpretation to the fashionable scene.

    Cannonball Adderley, Lovers..., 1976, Fantasy USA, F 9505

    Why so sad on back cover photo? Totally exhausted? What a gloom. Somehow he knew that this one was not their best one...
    The bright spot on this one is a samba: the vocals by Flora Purim and the acoustic bass playing by Ron Carter in "Lovers" B2

    Eric Quincy Tate Group, Drinking Man's Friend, 1972, Capricorn USA, CP 0104

    What a discovery yesterday at "Vinylpunkt" in Schaffhausen, Switzerland http://www.audioheritage.org/vbullet...l=1#post415391
    A fat Gibson guitar and a low down dirty Hammond organ. It's only southern blues-rock, but we like it. This one is refresheningly "reduced to the max". Listen to the swinging version of John Mayall's 1967 "Brown Sugar" A1. Joy of playing.
