The Madcap Laughs is the debut solo album by the English singer-songwriter Syd Barrett. It was recorded after Barrett had left Pink Floyd in April 1968. The album had a chequered recording history, with work beginning in mid-1968, but the bulk of the sessions taking place between April and July 1969, for which five different producers were credited − including BarrettRead More

While by no means a complete retrospective, this two-disc compilation contains a healthy sampling from Donovan’s first dozen years as a formidable musical figure. His chameleon-like sensibilities not only adapted to, but likewise defined the ’60s folk, pop, acid rock and the scene of swingin’ London. As well as hitting some of the more obvious high points, Donovan — who personally oversaw the project — included a couple of unissued demos (“London Town”/”Codine”), alternate versions (“Museum”/”Superlungs”/”Riki Tiki Tavi”) and previously unearthed titles (“Breezes Of Patchulie”/”Age Of Treason”/”What The Soul Desires”)Read More

Excellent collection of Zombies EPs from 1964 to 1966. Most Americans got turned on to The Zombies after they’d already broken up, via the belated US release of “Time Of The Season.” Casual fans know “Time…,” “She’s Not There” (in both mono and stereo here) and “Tell Her No” Read More

In January, 1969, virtually every moment of The Beatles’ rehearsals and recording sessions were captured on audio tape as part of the project that ultimately became the film “Let It Be.” For the first part of the month, at Twickenham Film Studios in London, The Beatles’ performances were only preserved on small 16 minute long mono tapes (known as “Nagra” reels) that were recorded for use as the film soundtrackRead More

Like a lot of bootleg CD releases, the packaging attempted to make the album look official, however the back cover failed to list the track contents accurately, and the front shown here was a little predictable. However the music is the key factor, and on this occasion the album is something of a gem to put it mildlyRead More

This Greatest Hits double-disc release is both utterly deceiving and painfully disappointing, since its tracks are made up of fabricated instrumental pieces of Rick Wakeman’s album cuts. Played by Wakeman, the songs are glossed-over remakes that may be true to their original note form, but are not the actual tracks from their previously released albums. Coming off like synthesized Muzak, popular favorites such as “Merlin the Magician,” “The Journey,” and Yes’ “Starship Trooper” lack depth, color, or energy, with only their familiar rhythms and melodies remainingRead More
