    Rare Bird, As Your Mind Flies By, 1970, Charisma Germany, 6369 904

    Griffige Rockrhythmen werden mit reichlich Pathos in progressive Gefilde überführt, die zwischen psychedelischen Klangfarben und von klassischer Musik beeinflusstem Pomp wandeln. Der im gemächlichen Tempo gehaltene Opener "What You Want To Know" zehrt seine Energie aus festlich eingefärbten Tasteneinsätzen und dem kraftvollen Gesang des Bassisten Steve Gould.
    "Down On The Floor" versprüht mit barock eingefärbtem Spinettklang trotz seiner kurzen Spielzeit eine typisch britische Eleganz, die sicherlich an Procol Harum erinnert. "Hammerhead" klingt trotz fehlender Gitarre phasenweise unerwartet hardrockig, kann aber erstmalig mit luftigen Psychedelic-Elementen aufwarten.
    Nach dem bedächtig dahin fließenden "I´m Thinking" folgt mit "Flight" ein für den noch etwas rauhen Sound des Protoprogs typischer Longtrack, in dem von klassischer Musik geprägtes Orgelspiel zwischen bedächtiger Romantik und schwungvoller Dynamik pendelt. Rare Bird agierten hier komplexer als die Zeitgenossen Procol Harum und lieferten einen zu Unrecht in Vergessenheit geratenen Rohdiamanten des britischen Progressive Rocks ab, in dem sich der prunkvolle Tastenklang der beiden Keyboarder zu epischer Breite emporsteigen kann, was im fulminanten "Bolero"-Zitat kulminiert und von opernhaftem Chorgesang im Hintergrund getragen wird. In den noch etwas bluesig eingefärbten Gesangseinlagen erinnern Rare Bird ein wenig an Colosseum.
    Mit dem zweiten Album der Band liegt ein Paradebeispiel für den progressiven Geist in der Rockmusik außerhalb des klassischen Artrocks vor. Handwerklich hochklassigen Kompositionen wurde hier unter Beibehaltung des traditionellen Rockgrooves ein durchaus innovativ-progressives Eigenleben eingehaucht, das sich freilich gegenüber den großen Bands des Genres nicht dauerhaft etablieren konnte.
    Nothing to add to this interesting statement from http://www.babyblaue-seiten.de/album_6337.html

    Golden Earrings, Miracle Mirror, 1968, Polydor Holland, 2419 054

    Cosmic psychedelic sounds similar to Status Quo in these years of flower power and fancy hairdo. Not yet the hard rockers of "Radar Love". A little sparkling gem. Holland rocks in a different way......

    Bermuda Triangle, Same, 1977, Winter Solstice US, SR 3338

    A curious one because of the unusual instrumentation with autoharp. No guitars. Psychedelic folk. Female singer Wendy Penney (Becket) plays a superb bass. Listen to the beautiful track A3 "Dream on". It's the Aerosmith debut album power ballad written by Steven Taylor.

    1970 psychedelic Krautrock from Berlin. Echt schräg und selten. Kerzen anzünden, auf die Knie und beten! Kneel and pray...

    I have it. But it's actually: The Zodiac: Cosmic Sounds (also known, less correctly, as either The Zodiac by Cosmic Sounds, or Cosmic Sounds by The Zodiac)

    Not credited on original issue: Bassist Carol Kaye and drummer Hal Blaine, both top on-demand session musicians, were The Zodiac's rhythm section.




    Look at the notice on back cover: "Must be played in the dark". Lights out...

    Love, Forever Changes, 1971, Elektra/Asylum D, K 42015

    „Wenn man sich heute Forever Changes anhört, gut 50 Jahre nach der Erstveröffentlichung, ist man immer noch baff, wie grandios diese Musik klingt. Auf der Basis von Psychrock und Barock-Pop erschufen Love eine bisweilen schwerelose und elegante Musik. Songs wie Alone Again Or, Andmoreagain oder Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale nehmen die gesamte Ästhetik des Indiepop vorweg, geben zudem Kollegen wie Jimmy Page, Ian Hunter oder David Bowie eine Idee davon, wie sich Folk und Rock gemeinsam auf ein neues Niveau bringen lassen. The Doors mögen damals das Rennen gemacht haben, aber bei aller Liebe zu deren LPs: Das große zeitlose Meisterwerk heißt Forever Changes.“ (André Bosse) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forever_Changes

    Ein Album, das mehr als eine psychedelische Zeitkapsel und eine hervorragende Mischung aus Kompositionen ist, und das einfach nicht sterben will. Verrückt und wesentlich.“ (Nig Hodgkins)

    Bee Gees, 1st, 1967, Polydor Germany, 184 089

    A highlight of psychedelic pop music and cover art by Klaus Voormann showing all the boundless optimism of the sixties. English overground psychedelia.

    Big Brother & The Holding Company, Same, 1967, Columbia Special Products USA, P 13313

    Great psychedelic company. Very fine dynamics on this US pressing with this strange label by Columbia Special Products. 2 tracks not appearing on sleeve credits: A6/B6
    I like this one, because Janis Joplin is not dominating the band. Listen to fine guitar tunes on right channel.
    Bye Bye Baby! B1.
