Friendship Time - Сomplete recordings 1975-1976 (2007)


EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 430 mb+3% recovery

Friendship Time biography:
In a small town north of Stockholm, guitarist Stig JONSSON, bass player Martin CERHA, singer Enrico ADAMBROSI and drummer Thomas LOWGREN - all teens at the time - formed FRIENDSHIP TIME in the fall of 1970. With the departure of singer ADAMBROSI and the addition of second guitarist Dag MATTSSON, the band began to move away from their rhythm&blues background and, after hearing 'The Yes Album', turned to a more progressive path.
By 1975, after numerous personnel changes and with the help of producer C.G. Langensklold, FRIENDSHIP TIME eventually recorded an album that was slated for release in '76 on Virgin Records. Sadly, after recording the sessions and contracting artwork for the cover, band members were no longer working together and the project fell apart.
These recordings would have remained lost had TRETTIOARIGA KRIGET drummer Dag LUNDQVIST not discovered them at his home in or around 2005. With the help of Stefan Dimle of Paatos and Morte Macabre, the material was remastered and released on Mellotronen. FRIENDSHIP TIME reflected the best of the symphonic sounds of YES, FLASH and CATHEDRAL, and was a fine young band on the verge of breaking through the prog ceiling before its untimely demise.

Lee Michaels - Space And First Takes (1972)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 256 mb+3% recovery

allmusic.com:
This album is a fascinating hybrid of psychedelia and mainstream hard rock, incorporating elements of both. Consisting of two short numbers (clocking in a under five minutes) and a pair of extended tracks running a quarter-hour each, it stands apart from most of the extended art rock jams of its era by virtue of its consistent, driving beat and the emphasis on crunchy guitar sounds (courtesy of ex-Paul Revere & the Raiders ax-man Drake Levin and Michaels himself). The title track and "Hold On to Freedom" seem like a lot of empty posturing, although the playing and production on "Space and First Takes" have enough of a psychedelic edge that its 16-minute length is mostly a virtue. "First Names" is slightly shorter, and intense enough across 14 minutes to pull the listener in even deeper and more successfully.
Tracklist:
1. Own Special Way (As Long As) 4:26
2. First Names 13:35
3. Hold On To Freedom 4:55
4. Space & First Takes 16:35

Talas [feat. Billy Sheehan] - Talas (1979)

EAC | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 259 mb+3% recovery

It's not often that a band is known solely for unleashing a bassist upon the metal world -- then again, Billy Sheehan is no ordinary bassist. As Talas was making minor waves in the early eighties, all talk was not about the band, but about Sheehan's amazing basswork, and it was clear enough that Sheehan was the star of the show. Soon enough, Talas ran its course, and Sheehan was off to bigger things, first being hand-picked to join David Lee Roth's band, and then starting his own band Mr. Big, which had a successful run in the early nineties and beyond. In retrospect, Talas wasn't an outstanding band, nothing more than a standard hard rock band playing decently catchy tunes but (aside from Sheehan) nothing out of the ordinary. Sheehan, of course, is a marvel, his style revolutionizing bass playing for years to come, even though at times his playing seemed at odds with the rest of the band. The original trio reunited in 1998 for the If We Knew Then live album as well as a Japanese EP.
