Swamp fuzz rock, harmonica. Heavy southern boogie sound. (acid archives)

 Louisiana's Blac Dog entitled "Backwoods Boogie (Louisiana's Answer To Punk Rock)" from 1978 on their own, private Crazy Horse label, #2001. There's 9 songs from this "bumpin' coon-ass band" as they sing on the opening title cut and you're guaranteed a raw, rocking good time!

MIJ - COLOR BY NUMBER (USA PSYCH "69)

MIJ “Yodeling Astrologer” (aka: Color By The Number) could be considered an anomaly, a one-off or a miracle of circumstance in the history of psychedelic pop music. Mij, a.k.a. Jim Holmberg was discovered by ESP owners while playing in Washington Square Park in the summer of 1968. His style and persona mesmerized the label heads, and he explained to them a recent auto accident had fractured his skull but left him changed. He perceived sound, color and vision differently and he had funneled this new world of perception directly into his music.

All this was enough to warrant getting Mij into the studio to lay down a record of his rambly, cosmic folk songs. The entire album was recorded in three hours, first-takes and impromptu production intact, then pressed up and introduced to the world shortly thereafter.To focus on the yodeling aspect of the Yodeling Astrologer would miss some of the depth of this album. Not just a hippie novelty act of the time, this is a truly thoughtful and somewhat frenzied document.

Like Buffy St. Marie’s “Meditations”, Linda Perhacs’ “Parallelograms”or “Cold Fact” by Rodriguez, this is an album of sincere folk songs colored with subtle psychedelic touches. Uneasy reverberations and soft echoes glide over Holmberg’s breezy songs, creating a consistent sonic environment as spontaneous as it is intriguing.  incredibly limited original pressing in 1969 on ESP Disk'.

    JOHN T. LEACH BAND - GOOD LIFE (USA SOUTHERN '76)

    The John T. Leach Band

    "Good Life"

    Company: Classic

    Excellent 1976 private press, probably custom pressed by the artist
    Pretty good hard rock LP with some early proto-metal touches, some southern rock, should appeal to Allman Brothers/Robin Trower fans.

    SMAK - FIRST (Heavy Prog Serbia '75)


    Smak


    • Boris Arandelović - lead vocals (1-4)
    • Radomir Točak Mihajlović - guitars (1-4)
    • Lazar Ristovski - organ, moog, clavinet, mellotron (1, 4)
    • Zoran Milanović - bass (1-4)
    • Slobodan S. Kepa - drums, percussion (1-4)
    • Miodrag M. Petkovski - (2)
    Smak's eponymous first album is among the highlights of Yugoslavian rock, bridging the bold YU Grupa and Black Sabbath heavy-rock influences with a more elaborate progressive rock. The four tracks on side one are nice heavy progressive numbers filled with energetic guitar and organ, but even belter is the ambitious 20-minute "Put Od Balona" with multi-layered keyboards (organ and Roland synthesizer feature most frequently, but there are also pianos and mellotron). R. T. Tocak's solo album was similar to the heaviest parts of Smak's first album and is recommended to guitar lovers.

    TED LUCAS (Detroit USA FOLK BLUES '75)

    Burnout downer folk ex-Spike Drivers guy, who must have gone through a lot to end up with the world-weary escapist testimony. High points include a very good raga-folk workout recored live, while "it is so nice to be stoned" manages to be both funny and scary. It should appeal to downer-loner folks fans, although a far cry from the spellbinding 1960s folkrockpsych of the Spikedrivers.
    So if you like this, Buy the lp or cd at the source http://www.tedlucas.net/ better my rip .
