GOOD MORNING FOLKS!
So let’s talk 1969 (at 6:57am est), Savoy Brown right now since being inspired from few nights ago! A fun little sundae for your ears on this kinda depressing Saturday morning, awaiting the arrival of hurricane Hanna! As one of the early blues/pysch/ British rock band, they really pronounced a sound worth a lifetime, even though they received more stimulating encouragement from the US of A, then they did from their own country, they continued to press on to make face in the music industry. 1969 was actually the first year Savoy Brown would release two full length LP’s, both of which are just absolutely spectacular. This was also the year that they had hits, touching Billboard chart with their persuasive riffs. The first of the 1969 releases, “Blue Matter” is the LP I would like to introduce to you today.
 
 
“Blue Matter” (third consecutive LP) was released (each with different sleaves) on Deram (and also on Parrot) records in early 1969, shortly after recording and the release of (their 2nd album) “Getting To The Point”, released in 1968, also on Deram records. Although I have pretty much everything from “Blue Matter” to “Savage Return” (only missing Skin N Bone released in 1976), I still have yet to set my eyes on their first and second LP’s (“Shake Down” in 1967 and “Getting to the Point” in 1968). I suppose as my dad says…”Rare As Rice”, which I never got because rice isn’t all that rare?! I can drive down the street to get a bag of it, hehehe!!!!… Ok then, that was “off sides”!! Savoy’s sound was not only very distinctive and collaborative on many different levels, but genuine and plentiful. Even though going through some line-up changes periodically, they have pushed their talents through four decades, surviving the times and pressures of reinvention.
 
For me personally… it’s not just the smooth sound. It’s Chris Youlden’s voice…

Welcome back to school for all you kids and teachers!!

I hate to have to do this to everyone, but today there will be no music post, I think I may have a virus in my computer… not so sure that is because WordPress.com is an unsecure sight or not, but either way I am going to have to dig deep into my hard drive to pull it out…

so give me a day or two to square this out… ENJOY!

Happy Labor Day

Here’s a little present for your ears that I scored during my hiatus!

Now before I go into anything, I had been searching for this LP for a long time and never came across it. I suppose in the back of my head I figured that it was one of those LP’s that you quest for but take a lifetime to acquire.

So stumbling and scurrying between record stores and flea markets early last Sunday morn, my Husband and I quested off to visit our old friend, New Hope, PA. Now I love New Hope, there are so many cute little stores there! But anyway on our way up there we stopped at this flea market/antique store to buzz around and really just to dip our toes in fresh waters (even though we have been there 2 other times). I always like a newer, not as familiar place because sometimes going to the same old flea market weekend after weekend can feel a bit redundant.

At this time while we’re walking about (I have a sweatshirt on), the sun is crawling high and hotter into the breaking afternoon sky and the sweat is just DRIPPING off my face, down my back, under my boobs, down my ass crack and I’m starting to get a bit aggravated because I can’t even take off my sweatshirt because I forgot to shave my pits! We come across a few keepers that were within the isles that some vender’s had in stinky cardboard boxes, ON THE GROUND, but I need to be in the shade or the A/C, so I start making my way into the building part, which is actually the antique store.

While I am waiting for the sluggish Mr. Love, visually I start walking around the antique store when…BINGO… I lay eyes on this one music shop. Now, normally I try my VERY BEST to wait for my husband because he gets a little testy if I beat him to the punch on ANY record, which inevitably is a horrible thing when you both collect records because IN MY MIND… either way, ANYTHING we get comes to the same address and the same collection, so I don’t mind, BUT it drive him CRAZY!… In anycase I wondered over there all by my lonesome to check out this jazzy store. I skip the tapes and disc’s and just go right for the plastic boxes that held the vinyl and start picking through them.

The guys had a bunch of things there that I scored, but for me when I came across this LP, exuding the stench of yester-year… LITERALLY I almost fainted, because like I said, I just figured this was going to have to be an ebay purchase or something of that nature!

 give you “GUN”, their first, S/T LP released in 1969 on Epic records… and I can’t even describe tell you how much of a masterpiece this album truly is! A totally heavy, noisy, creative band that really (for me) highlighted the futility of the increasingly progressive British invasion!

ENJOY THE RIDE!

Welcome back (to myself) everyone!!

I’ve been gone for a short while, kinda on hiatus I guess you could say.

In the last several days it has been so busy at my job that keeping up is almost impossible, been working on my house and just a bunch of other things that I just haven’t had the time or ambition to log onto the computer!

Anyway here’s a quicky… no more talking… around the table, just listen!!!

From his solo career, I give you Jeff Beck’s 5th solo release….”Wired” on Epic records released in 1976.

Totally a “get your groove on” spin…

it’s 10:52 est right now, I was just buzzing around the YouTube and found this TOTALLY hip video for Savoy Brown’s-“Train To Nowhere” off their third LP, “Blue Matter” released in 1969. I really love Savoy Brown, ESPECIALLY early S.Brown.

I think I am going to do a blog on Savoy Brown for tomorrow!

ENJOY… because it’s totally cool with old nostalgic photo’s and flyers!

Saint Vitus totally rips! So here is my short little stent for the week. Off their 5th LP, fittingly name “V”  on Hellhound records released in 1989. This is actually only Wino’s (of the Obsessed) third album with guys after replacing Scott Reagers (recorded their S/T LP,Hallow’s Victim LP and finally The Walking Dead EP) on vocs in 1986.
