The Four Seasons - The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette (1969)


EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Front cover | 290 mb+3% recovery

It isn’t often one would think Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons synonymous with ambitious psychedelia-baroque dabbling. Surprisingly so, in their lost 1969 masterpiece The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette, the two are quite familiar bedfellows. Bordering on outlandish and overly ambitious at times, Valli & The Seasons nonetheless produced a genuine musical oddity that was and continues to be severely overlooked even in today’s panoptic musical scheme.

Baltik - Baltik (1973) [Re-post by request]

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 317 mb+3% recovery

This somewhat gloomy, progressive album, comprising cream of the crop of the era's Nordic session scene, plus one bass virtuoso from England, John Gustafson (Roxy Music, Quatermass, Ian Gillan Band, Hard Stuff) is now one of the ultimate collectors items for most Deep Purple, Atomic Rooster and Roxy Music afficionados. It starts off quite heavy, then the pace is slowed down with a gospel-flavoured ballad a-la early Elton and maybe Joan Armatrading (who lead singer Beverly Glenn certainly sounds like), which sets the mood for the rest of side A. Side B is filled with quirky, interesting but somewhat murky prog rock, which takes a little bit of getting used to - especially if it doesn't grab you from the first listen; give it another chance.

Black Oak Arkansas ‎- Early Times (Rec. 1969 / Rel. 1974)


FLAC TRACKS+Covers | 189 mb+3% recovery

The material on Black Oak Arkansas' Early Times collection may have been recorded in 1969, but it went unreleased until 1974 by Stax, after the band scored chart success with 1973's High on the Hog and its smash novelty single, "Jim Dandy," named for the band's gruff-voiced lead vocalist, Jim "Dandy" Mangrum. The lineup that would appear on their official debut remained intact from these sessions. Guitarist Ricky Reynolds wrote the majority of the tunes here, and while some of them showed up in different versions in concert and on other compilation records, there is a reason Early Times wasn't released when it was recorded: it isn't very good. While many could argue that Black Oak Arkansas were a throwaway version of a Southern rock group, they'd be wrong. Novelty and comedy were part of the stage show, but despite Mangrum's stage antics, their recordings were deathly serious even if some of the tunes were about getting drunk and laid. Musically, there is great sophistication here the hip horn chart on the opener, "Someone Something"; the whining pedal steel on "When I'm Gone"; the funky blues on "Collective Thinking"; etc. The problem isn't the production it's the songs. They weren't written to reflect a band's identity so much as they were for the various individuals who penned them, leaving the set as a whole unfocused and seemingly unfinished. This one is for collectors only.

1. Someone Something
2. When I'm Gone
