Back in hospital again.

Hi, gang.
Just wanted to let you know that I am in hospital again and won't be making any posts for a while. I hope to be out in another week or so and begin the recuperation phase. I hope the rest of you are well.

Now for something completely different

When I started posting again, I mentioned that I would be adding other genres to my usual diet of psych, surf and garage. Although I am no longer able to spend hours digging through crates of vinyl, I do haunt a few places where the digging is easy. The cover of this one caught my eye and after reading the notes, I placed my 25 cents US in the hand of the clerk and proceeded to Chez Riff to clean it and give it a listen. All but one of the tracks were composed by Quincy Jones and the other track is by Horace Silver. Six vocalists and a rhythm section putting out some very cool sounds. Think Lambert, Hendricks and Ross times two. If you like vocalise and cool jazz, I think you'll like this one. Ripped @ 320 by Eddie. Cover scans included.

Monodelic Prunetastic

Today's offering is the mono version of the first album by The Electric Prunes. It features both of their hit singles, "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" and "Get Me To The World On Time." These are considered cornerstones of the Garage Psych genre, as well they should be. This is my vinyl rip with only a small amount of restoration used to get rid of some annoying pops and clicks. It's ripped at 320 and both covers are included in the download.

Doug Sahm & Augie Meyers

Here's a great collection of Texas-tinged rhythm and blues from the one and only Doug Sahm and his saddle-pal, Augie Meyers. This is my vinyl rip at 320k as it came from the turntable. It's a clean copy and no audio restoration of any kind was used. Thanks to my pals out there for setting me straight on the release of this one.

Track listing and link in comments. Front and back covers are included in the download.

Still alive, not always well.

Hello, all. It was a rough winter and spring in Chez Eddie. Screwed-up immune system had me gathering every rogue germ in the area which kept me sick much of the time. Sickness led to isolation which lead to depression which led to isolation. Still having to be careful and avoid folks who are obviously sick, but my psychiatrist has told me to get out of the house more often and to blog more frequently. Here I am, a long six months since the last post hoping that a few of you are still out there. I got my turntable fixed and hooked up to my computer again, so I will started ripping stuff for your listening pleasure again. With all the new music blogs out there, I may get more eclectic in my shares. Seems like all the garage, surf and psych bases have been covered. Expect the unexpected. I am getting out to the shops a little more, looking for obscurities and oddities and will share what I find. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and please let me know how you are, too. Your pal, Eddie
