GREETINGS FROM OHIO [Rare 70’s Garage/Hard Rock]

Greetings From Ohio (1)

 

“Long lost, meticulously-sought out jewels of hard rock and heavy psych/prog from the ’60s and ’70s glory days.
The first release in the Archives of Acid is a fourteen-track collection of the best, rarest singles from Ohio’s rich history of rock, spanning 1970 to 1977. It traverses grungy hard rock with Big Blue and Travis, epic rock with Myth Band and proto-punk with Erving Forbush and Dry Ice.
Also along for the ride is some heavy funk (Cincinnati Joe) and Southern rock from Zachariah. And that’s not all, give it a spin to see what other delights are in store…” [Archives of Acid]

Yep! Another collection of 70’s hard rock/proto-punk rarities in style of Bonehead Crunchers-Freaks comps you alredy dig here on Surfadelic. This stuff I dug from Archives of Acid bandcamp and made some sound cleaning/fixing, so you can get it in the best possible shape. Well Ohio… here we go, Dig!!!

michigan-rumble

Woah Dad! What we got here? Another super ultra rockin’n’rollin’ Surfadelic comp. And I can tell you it’s pretty big fat ”project” cause I have to select some 93 trax for three volumes of 50’s & 60’s Michigan rock’n’roll rumble. As you know I’ve recently have posted some obcure Michigan rockers as intro for this big collection of some rare, unissued and underground stuff. Here you gotta deal mostly with raw R-Billy, Rock’n’Roll, Instrumentals and few 60’s garage cuts. Some of this tunes already can be heard on various comps but some not, so if you are curious to know what is all about, don’t miss it. It’s Michigan Rumble ok! Dig !!!

when they go surfing on pure white sand

LOUNGE AT CINEVOX – Beat vol.1 & 2 [Italian Lounge & Film Music]

“Lounge at Cinevox: Beat plucks a series of lounge-influenced instrumentals from the vaults of Cinevox Records, an Italian record company that has specialized in soundtracks for many decades. Lounge fanatics will be happy to know that much of the material on this disc is either previously unreleased or making its first appearance on compact disc. Much of the material presented here has a jazzy swing to it: “Bakenda Beat” layers freewheeling sax and piano solos over the throb of a tight rhythm section, and “Up to Date” is a furiously paced track that lets percolating horns take the lead over a rat-a-tat backbeat from the drummer. Other cuts pursue a psychedelic pop style: “La Cosa Buffa” is an organ showcase paced by some mellow guitar riffs, while “2968” is a positively unhinged tune that piles fuzz guitar riffs and squealing brass atop a throbbing, echo-laden drumbeat. Precious little here fits the easy listening tag, but the occasional cut gives the listener a breather: “Supermarket” is a mellow track that sets some groovy organ soloing to the rhythms of a gently funky bassline, and the elegant closer, “C’Era Una Volta Un Motivo,” juxtaposes yearning strings and peppy horns over a light jazz beat. The problem with Lounge at Cinevox: Beat is that its selections often sacrifice melodic content in favor of just creating a mood, and this might cause non-lounge fans to quickly lose interest. Despite this problem, most of the cuts keep things short and sweet (only “Unknit” overstays its welcome), and the disc maintains a solid lounge-y groove throughout. As a result, Lounge at Cinevox: Beat is a solid pick for European lounge enthusiasts.” [AllMusic]

Fine 60’s & 70’s Italian lounge music of Piero Umiliani, Carlo Savina, Augusto Martelli,Carlo Rustichelli, Giorgio Gaslini, Gianni Ferrio, Ennio Morricone… Some real cool funky fuzz & organ sounds. Say… Dig !!!

GREASED BUCKSKIN BELTERS [Rare 70’s Garage/Hard Rock]

Greased Buckskin Belters n8

 

’14 HIGH OCTANE AND FRENZIED TALES OF BOOZED UP HICKS, CHICKS, DROP OUTS AND SKUNKS SYPHONED FROM VARIOUS NORTH AMERICAN OIL DUMPS OF ILL-REPUTE’ – Belter Records (known from the ‘Bonehead Crunchers’ and ‘Ultimate Bonehead’ series) has been rampaging obscure nooks and crannies of North America to uncover a selection of frenetic screamers and high velocity tales of hellraising and beer swilling with fast driving stoners trying to catch even faster moving girls. If you can imagine a rockabilly outgrowth updated through a grinder operated by Keith Richards and Rob Tyner, you have an idea of what to expect. This LP merges rock’n’roll, late garage and budding proto punk in an endless orgy of high energy stupidity. The contents are mainly from the late ’60s and early ’70s, so if you like Flamingo- era Groovies or ever wanted to hear a more rural MC5, this one is for you!
