    Rolling Stones, Blue & Lonesome, 2016, Polydor France, 571 494-4

    Tongue twisters. Still magical after all these years.

    Let it be a Blüthner

    Still magical after 50 years: the sound of the piano in the intro of "Let it be". It's a German Blüthner Flügel from Leipzig.

    Procol Harum, Song For A Dreamer

    Rock myths aside, “Song for a Dreamer” remains one of the best evocations of Hendrix ever recorded. Beautiful and mysterious, elegiac and seemingly profound, it is among the great dark works of psychedelic rock.

    “I couldn’t believe I did that,” guitarist Trower said of the 1971 recording, essentially a solo effort on which he sang and played most of the instruments.

    Thus inspired, the guitarist left Procol Harum for a long and fairly successful solo career — one, ironically, that drew never-ending comparisons to Hendrix. That all started here. https://psychedelicsight.com/song-for-dreamer-trower/
    "I will meet you on the other side of the moon..." One of the most sensitive tributes to Jimi Hendrix.

    B.J.Wilson and Johann Sebastian Bach 1967

    Repent Walpurgis: this simple and pure but so portentous drum intro by B.J. Wilson. Followed by that great Bach-Fisher organ tune. Shivers down my spine... still after so many years.
    "To be listened to in the spirit in which it was made" (back cover liner note)
    Procol Harum's first LP: cultural heritage, still one of the most enduring progressive-rock masterpieces. One for the desert island, yes, definitively!

    No "woffle" for America

    50 years ago: the birth of heavy metal rock. "Speed King": that explosive whammy-bar-excess intro, called by the band "woffle", was not suitable for the US music market. So they dropped the fist 50 seconds. What an embarrassing misjudgement. That intro was essential for the unfolding of heavy metal hard rock: it showed the energetic arising of Phoenix from the ashes of rock'n'roll. It's unlike anything else released at the time. Epochal till today. Forget the US version. That first minute would blow our mind...

    Taste, Live Taste, 1971, Polydor England, 2310 082

    Magical incredible juvenile energy: Rory Gallagher 1970 live at Montreux, Switzerland. Listen to "Feel so good part 2" B1.

    Bee Gees, Odessa, 1969, Karussell Germany, 2674 012, 2LP

    Full of majestic anthems. Ageless with magical atmosphere: "Lamplight", C3. Intro: "Alors, viens encore cherie! J'attendrais ans apres ans sous la lampe dans la vieille avenue." The melody for a new national anthem of Switzerland?
    Bee Gees' "Sgt. Pepper"?

    The Doors, Best Of, 2000, Elektra Germany, 625 881, 4 LP, Lim. ed., Remixes 2000

    A brilliant trick for an atmospheric song: the overdubbed whispering by Jim Morrison increases the dark intensity of scary mood. Listen to "Riders on the storm N.O.W. Sofa Mix" D3 of Bonus 12".
    Magical effects
    of dripping raindrops by Fender Rhodes piano by Ray Manzarek. Ear cinema. The last one with crazy Jim.

    Procol Harum, Something Magic, 1977, Chrysalis UK, CHR 1130

    The Intro of "Something Magic": regal sounding orchestra heralding the entry of Brookers piano.
    "In the centre of the storm something magic being born". Most underrated album of Procol Harum. Perished in style in the centre of the nasty storm of "Punk". The title song is something magic, indeed: "It's the dark hours of the soul, when the nightmares take their toll..."
    "The worm and the tree"
    (a fable): what foreseeing vision 43 years before Corona.

    Peter Green on Brian Knight, Dark Horse, 1981, Creole Germany, 6.24735

    Peter Green RIP. After his comeback in 1979 he wasn't the same again. But there still was enough magic in his guitar playing. Listen to "Trouble in mind" A4: Brian Knight, vocals (Ex-Cyril Davies' All Stars), Peter Green guitar, Ian Stewart (Stu!), Charlie Hart bass (Pete Brown's Battered Ornaments et al. look here: http://www.charliehart.com/pages/biography.htm) and the great Charlie Watts on drums. Peter Green in the skies, above everything.

    The cover of your In The Skies album obviously differs significantly from any of my items. Here's PVLS 101 that I bought soon after it was released in 1979:

    And here's Creole 6.23793 AO that I received as a birthday present from some fellow students the same year:

    Yes, it's so sad that Peter Green ist gone. Together with Danny Kirwan who passed just some months ago he formed the nucleus of the real Fleetwood Mac. Let's hope they will find other musicians in heaven to re-form Fleetwood Mac as a blues band.

    Btw, he obviously influenced many other guitarists. Here's an example by Scotch band Beggars Opera from their 1972 album Pathfinder, written by their guitarist Ricky Gardiner:

    Guess which FM tune was the pattern for this one?

    Best regards!

    I saw The Doors live in '68 , always a fan ...but then I've always thought they sucked LIVE.

    It's a Canadian pressing. USA: Sail Records. Good dynamics.

    This is the German Teldec pressing. A rather dark and dull sky (slabo day?) on cover art. I like the Canada pressing cover art more than this (for us Europeans) common one. But it's more convenient with the fold cover supplying the lyrics. Peter Bardens Hammond/electric piano. Snowy White, fine guitar solos in "Slabo day". Distinguishing for this "laid back" surprising comeback after 9 years: the congas played by Lennox Langton. Look at the advertising in German music magazine "Sounds".
