G-Force (feat. Gary Moore) - G-Force (1980)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 262 mb+3% recovery

G-Force is a 1980 album by the namesake UK-American band led by Gary Moore. Moore was on an American tour with Thin Lizzy and left the band mid-tour. He went to Los Angeles in an attempt to make a solo rock presence. With the opportunity to tour America in support of Van Halen, Moore recruited bassist Tony Newton (Motown session player and ex-Tony Williams Lifetime), vocalist Willie Dee (born Willy Daffern; ex-Captain Beyond/Pipedream) and percussionist Mark Nauseef (formerly with the Ian Gillan Band and Elf) and the band was formed as G-Force. The tour was a success, and the band supported Whitesnake on their 1980 Ready & Willing trek. However, the band was short lived, only producing the one eponymous album. The album consisted of more conventional hard rock radio oriented music than Moore's previous efforts. Soon after its release, G-Force disbanded and Moore joined with Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake & Palmer fame, on a new venture.

The Wackers - Hot Wacks (1972)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 201 mb+3% recovery

The Wackers were an American Elektra Records group, produced by Gary Usher, who established the band from members of Roxy, which had moderate success. Musicians Bob Segarini, fellow Roxy member Randy Bishop on vocals, Bill 'Kootch' Trochim on bass and keyboards, guitarist Michael Stull and drummer Spencer Earnshaw made up the original group. Elektra released their debut Wackering Heights, which included session saxophonist Jack Schaeffer. Following the success of the tracks "Travelin' Time" and "Body Go Round", the band toured Canada and the US. The next year (1972), the band moved to Montreal, Canada around the time that they released their sophomore LP Hot Wacks. The album, recorded at Andre Perry Studios, featured "I Hardly Know Her Name" and a cover of John Lennon's "Oh My Love". Most of side two of the album was the six-song "Time Will Carry On" suite which reminded the listener of side two of The Beatle's "Abbey Road. Many references to the Hot Wacks LP erroneously refer to songs that do not appear on any Wackers LPs including "Windy Days", "I Got My Friends" and remakes of "New York City" and "Rock and Roll Circus", which were songs from the Roxy album in 1970. The third album, Shredder, was released in 1973 and featured "Day and Night" (a chart single), "Beach Song" and "Last Dance".
Despite Michael Stull leaving the group shortly after the move to Montreal, and April Wine drummer Jerry Mercer and guitarist JP Lauzon playing on several of the "Shredder" tracks, Segarini, Trochim, Bishop and Earnshaw went on to record an unreleased fourth album, "Wack 'n' Roll." Soon after, Earnshaw returned to California and Randy Bishop began a solo career. The Wackers soldiered on for a time with new additions Leon Holt, Norman Vosko and Wayne Cullen and released one single on Polydor Records, "All I Want To Do Is Love You." Segarini, Trochim and Cullen would then form The Dudes, with original April Wine members David and Ritchie Henman, and future April Wine guitarist Brian Greenway for one album. Bob Segarini went on to enjoy a criticaly aclaimed solo career and later ventured into TV and Radio broadcasting.

Warren Haynes - Man In Motion

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 496 mb+3% recovery



Kicking off with Warren Haynes' unmistakable and masterful guitar over gospel-soaked piano, the title track to the dynamic new album 'Man In Motion' functions as a mission statement for the legendary musician and his signature brand of rock, blues and soul. Driving horn blasts and powerful organ punctuate some of the most soulful guitar playing and singing that Haynes has ever recorded.
'Man In Motion' is also a snapshot of a creatively restless musician who is constantly in artistic motion himself. "Musicians are students for life. We have to continually take new approaches," affirms Haynes. It's not Haynes' first foray as a soul man, however. "Soul music was my first love," says Haynes. "The first LPs I had growing up in Asheville [NC] were greatest hits compilations from Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, James Brown, Junior Walker, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Wilson Pickett, and The Supremes." 'Man in Motion' contains all original Haynes songs with the addition of original Stax recording artist William Bell's hit "Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday".
 Тracklist:
1. Man In Motion
2. River’s Gonna Rise
3. Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday
4. Sick Of My Shadow
5. Your Wildest Dreams
6. On A Real Lonely Night

Iguana - Iguana (1972)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 380 mb+3% recovery

Not to be confused with American outfit of the same name, mysterious British band Igtia'na was'. formed in Southampton in early 1970s to release one excellent album and then disappear without a trace, The core of the band was guitarist/vocalist Bruce Roberts, bass-player John Cartwright and drummer Pete Hunt, The trio was augmented by strong dual brass-section – Ron Taylor on alto sax and tambourine and ' Chris Gower on trombone. The solid presence of horns together with excellent songwriting is what makss. Iguana’s only offering truly unique.
Despite the album being released on the well-known Polydor label, it quickly became one of its most obscure items, since for some strange reason nobody was interested in the great blend of loud jazz-rock and energetic heavy rock stuffed with progressive elemenets. Surprisingly enough, even Tapestry Of Delights, the Bible for any British psych/prog fan, missed this one! Time has come to unearth this minor classic.
The sound of Iguana is rich and colorful, based on permanent juxtapositions of heavy, some what funky guitar sound and jazzy saxophone riffs – most of the songs are catchy and easy-to-get-into, in spit'e of their complex structures. Though most of the tracks are vocal-driven, there are enough space foi" adventurous instrumental excursions, the band achieves a perfect balance between song-oriented stgff and sophisticated progressive compositions (such is the longest piece on the LP, almost 9-minute “P.rice of Love”, reminding me of Colosseum, Mogul Thrash and other prcminent brass rockers of the eariy 1970s). Actually Brainchild's "Healing Of The Lunatic Owl" would be the closest comparison to Iguana’s. debut, only if Brainchild work was closer to progressive realms, Iguana veers more towards pure rocking sound, making the accent on sheer frank intensity of the early British rock music.
Unable to get the recognition they deserved, the musicians of Iguana almost decided to call it quits, when they've got noticed by prominent songwriter Jess Roden (ex-Alan Bown Set, ex-Butts Band). The whole Iguana line-up became Roden's backing band, touring with him for several years and helping hini to record several highly acdaimed LPs in the mid-1970s (including Keep Your Hat On"). Although the col-laboration with Roden might probably be lucrative for Iguana musicians, it must be pointed out that'.it ended their short career as independent songwriters. However, the sole Iguana LP from 1974 proves they could really do a talented, original and highly creative music. This is the first ever CD-reissue of this great "lost" album.

Koncz Zsuzsa - Jelbeszéd (1973)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 262 mb+3% recovery

Probably the most popular Hungarian female singer ever, Zsuzsa Koncz first came to prominence in early-60s via appearance in the popular TV contest “Ki mit tud?’ (‘Who Knows What?’). Invitations to work followed from Omega, Merto and Illes bands. In the meantime, ‘Rohan az Ido’ – a song culled from the show and penned by Levente Szoreniy and Istvan Nagy of Illes – became huge hit.
By mid-70s Zsuzsa turned into international star, having successfully toured both Eastern (USSR, East Germany) and Western (France, USA) states. Fonograf, a band formed in early 1975 by ex-Illes members, became her new backing group.
Early-80s were marked with singer’s looking for a new direction. Break-up of Fonograf in mid-80s forced her to quit service of permanent backing unit in favor of session musicians and orchestras.
Slowed musical activities down by late-80s. However, returned in 1997 with yet another gold album.
Apart from musical achievements, Zsuzsa’s service to national song culture brought her several State Government awards, of which ‘The Honor Cross Medal of the Republic of Hungary’ (1995) seems the most important.

Jim Capaldi - Fierce Heart (1982)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 250 mb+3% recovery

Review by James Chrispell (allmusic.com):
Fierce Heart reunited Jim Capaldi with Steve Winwood and the results are warm to the heart as well as pleasing to the ears. With help from Van Morrison as well, Capaldi put out an album that showed renewed faith in rock after having been living in Brazil absorbing various influences there and raising a family. Winwood's recent smash hits influenced Capaldi to write more upbeat as well as personal songs, highlighted by "That's Love" and "Tonight You're Mine." But whereas Winwood got into the Top Ten with his songs, Capaldi barely made into the Top 200. That was a shame, for there are a lot of comparisons here that should have been explored. For Winwood fans, this album was like an extra helping. For Capaldi fans, it was the main course.
Тracklist:
1. Tonight You're Mine
2. Living On The Edge
3. Bad Breaks
4. Runaway
5. Back At My Place
6. That's Love
7. I'll Always Be Your Fool
8. Don't Let Them Control You
9. Gifts Of Unknown Things


Featuring:
Steve Winwood | Van Morrison | Mel Collins | Nicole Winwood | Pete Bonas

Jim Capaldi - Short Cut Draw Blood (1975) [Vinyl Rip]


VINYL RIP | FLAC TRACKS+Covers | 264 mb+3% recovery

Short Cut Draw Blood is the third studio album by the British musician Jim Capaldi. Released by Island Records in 1975, it marked a major turning point in Capaldi's career: It was his first album recorded after the breakup of Traffic, and more importantly, it was his commercial breakthrough. While Capaldi's first two solo albums had been moderately successful in the USA (and in fact, in the USA Short Cut Draw Blood was his least successful album thus far, with both the album itself and the single "Love Hurts" barely scraping into the Billboard charts), Short Cut Draw Blood saw him entering the charts in several other countries for the first time. This was particularly evident in his native United Kingdom; the single "It's All Up to You", released a year before the album, became his first top 40 hit there, only to be overshadowed the following year by his cover of "Love Hurts", which went all the way to number 4.
Rolling Stone called the album slightly uneven but a promising step forward. Their review approved of both the session musicians and the arrangements, and was particularly complimentary towards his cover of "Love Hurts", saying "he brings a sense of pain very different from Roy Orbison's original."
 Тracklist:
1. Goodbye Love
2. It's All Up To You
3. Love Hurts
4. Johnny Too Bad
5. Short Cut Draw Blood
6. Living On A Marble
7. Boy With A Problem
8. Keep On Trying
9. Seagull

Re-post: Bachman - Any Road (1992)

EAC | CD Image | APE+CUE+LOG+Covers | 372 mb+3% recovery

This 1992 release features guest appearances by fellow Canadians, vocalist Margo Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies and Neil Young on the track "Prarie Town." "If you yearn for the days was guitar-playing was guitar playing, and singers told it like it was...this is definitely an album for you! Most highly recommended." - Jim Brown, from the West Coast Music Review. Says Randy: "There are a lot of retrospective songs on Any Road. I never really did commentary songs before. Like, in "Fifteen Minutes of Fame," I'm angry. In "Vanishing Heroes," I'm in bewilderment. I'm asking, where are all the heroes? Then there is this wonderful retrospective look back at growing up in Winnipeg, which is both versions of "Prarie Town," slow and fast. I've had musicians come up to me and say, 'That is the ultimate Canadian song for any musician from the sixties and seventies.' It tells everything. From learning to drive in the snow, going from coast to coast… There are some lines in there that I don't even know how I wrote them... it was a fun, great album to record - very satisfying for me as far as a personal statement and my first step out on my own after many, many years."  (randybachman.com)
