Wishbone Ash is the first studio album by Wishbone Ash. The band's debut album became a reality when they were opening for Deep Purple in early 1970. Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was jamming during the band's soundcheck when Wishbone guitarist Andy Powell boldly plugged in and began jamming with Blackmore.
After the show, Blackmore recommended that MCA Records sign the band. Deep Purple producer Derek Lawrence produced this album, which features elements of blues, Jazz, progressive rock, and psychedelic improvisation. The album was a success and Wishbone Ash would soon become one of the most popular rock bands of the early 1970s. (Wikipedia)

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich - If Music Be The Food Of Love (1966) (Vinyl)

Year: 16 December 1966 (LP 1966) Mono
Label: Fontana Records (UK), TL5388 687 929 TL
Style: Beat
Country: Wiltshire, England
Time: 31:10
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 193 Mb

The band's story began in the late 50s when "the Dozies" as they are now affectionately called, came together from various bands of the Salisbury area. Trevor Davies (Dozy), then with the Beatnicks met Ian Amey (Tich) and persuaded him to leave his group Eddy and the Strollers to join the Beatnicks. A few months later David Harman (Dave Dee) from the Coasters and Boppers came in and Tich approached his school chum John Dymond (Beaky) who also was a member of the Big Boppers to join in as well.
"Ronnie Blonde and the Beatnicks" gigged extensively already with a repertoire of classic rockers and contemporary hits plus a few own numbers. One night their front man Ronnie did not show up and Dave ended up doing most of the lead vocals and eventually became their front man himself.
Their drummers came and went but finally around Christmas '61 it worked out with Michael Wilson (Mick) whom Dozy had met while travelling on the bus. In the meantime the band name had been changed to Dave Dee & the Bostons.
The boys had already given up their regular jobs as painters or car mechanics to become full-time musicians. Dave had been a policeman before and, as a Cadet was first on the scene of a car crash on April 17, 1960 that killed Eddie Cochrane and seriously injured Gene Vincent. A burst tyre had hurled their taxi into a lamppost near Chippenham, Wiltshire and Dave salvaged Eddie's Gretsch guitar. It was kept at the police station for a few weeks before being sent back to Eddie's family in the USA - after Dave had "had a good strum on it". photo Dave Dee as Policeman In 1962 Dave finally quit his job too, when the band went pro - but occasionally would recite the 'Policeman's Definitions' - required when making an arrest - just to surprise people and remind himself of those days.

Blackfeather are an Australian rock group which formed in April 1970. The band has had numerous line-ups, mostly fronted by founding lead singer, Neale Johns. An early heavy rock version recorded their debut album, At the Mountains of Madness (April 1971), which peaked at number seven on the Go-Set Top 20 Albums chart. It provided the single, "Seasons of Change" (May 1971), which was co-written by Johns with lead guitarist, John Robinson. In July 1972 a piano-based line-up led by Johns issued an Australian number-one single, "Boppin' the Blues", which is a cover version of the Carl Perkins' 1956 single.
On this album was a song that was to become not only a hit for two different bands, but also proved to be the catalyst for another major problem within the band. The song “Seasons of Change” was recorded using a couple of musicians from the band Fraternity, Bon Scott and keyboardist John Bissett. Bon had sung some backing vocals and had played recorder on the track. He loved the song and asked could he record it with Fraternity. A deal was eventually struck that allowed Fraternity to record it and release it as a single on the understanding that Blackfeather would not release their version in competition.

Pink Floyd - Obscured by Clouds (1972) (Vinyl)

Year: 1972 (LP 1972)

Style: Rock, Progressive Rock
Country: London, England
Time: 40:00
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz

Obscured by Clouds is the seventh studio album by the English progressive rock band Pink Floyd, based on their soundtrack for the French film La Vall?e, by Barbet Schroeder. It was released in the United Kingdom on 2 June 1972, and a few weeks later in the United States, by Harvest Records, reaching number 6 and number 46 respectively. A single, "Free Four", was issued in the US only.
The album was something of a stopgap for the band, who had already started work on The Dark Side of the Moon, and was recorded in two sessions in France between touring, with three days for mixing. The original plan was to just record small sections of music, but they ultimately created enough songs for a complete album.

"The Beat Goes On" is the second album by the American psychedelic rock band Vanilla Fudge, released in early 1968. The album doesn't contain any real "songs", but rather a sound collage featuring many different elements: the voices of world leaders past and present, the band reciting pre-written mantras and reflections, and excerpts of songs (done "Vanilla Fudge style") by The Beatles and Sonny Bono.

Deep Purple - Deep Purple (1969) (Vinyl 180g)

Year: June 1969 (US), September 1969 (UK) (LP ????)
Label: Tetragrammaton Records (USA), T-119
Style: Classic Rock, Hard Rock

Time: 43:58
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 268 Mb

"Tetragrammaton" issued the album in a stark gatefold sleeve, wrapped around with a segmented illustration from Hieronymus Bosch's painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights". The label ran into difficulty over the use of the Museo del Prado-owned painting, which was incorrectly perceived in the US as being anti-religious, featuring immoral scenes, and was thus rejected or poorly stocked by many record shops. The original painting is in colour although it appeared on the LP in monochrome due to a printing error for the original layout and the band opted to keep it that way. The same Bosch painting (in colour) had previously been used as an album cover two years before by Pearls Before Swine on their debut One Nation Underground.
