PJ Proby. Jim's Blues. 1969.

That's the Dark Lord James Patrick Page on guitar, Bonham on drums, John Paul Jones on bass, and Percy on harmonica. Hell of backing band, Proby.

Trapeze. Black Cloud. 1972.

What is it about the Birmingham Black Country that produced such fucking heavy hitters? Bonham, Sabbath and these dudes, Trapeze. Here's a blistering live take from Dallas in 1972. It's got a real Free/Bad Company feel to it. Cock rock to the core.

How The Gypsy Was Born - Frumpy, 1970.

Thus ends a sweet little triptych into the Krautrock backlog. I guess the good times went badder for the German hippies. Thank, fucking god.

Highway Star - Deep Purple, 1970 (?)

Sorry, a 2 million hitter. However, Ritchie and the boys smoke through Gillian's fucking off.

Ellison. Strawberry Rain. 1971.

I picked up this amazing album at Leary Records a few weeks ago. Some dudes from Montreal. Pretty great. I love the breakdown to the almost "Maggot Brain" guitar. The lyrics begin with "Black mass in heaven..."

I can get down to that.
