"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Anyone's Dreamcolour - Girl in a Drop of Water / Rosemarine

Girl in a Drop of Water...

  • "Anyone's Dreamcolour" was the solo project of Mike S., the bass player of "Cloud Nine (& the Vitamin C)" and "Orange". Lo-fi demo recordings exist from the years 1992 until 1999, all unreleased and only given away to friends. 
  • The music of "Anyone's Dreamcolour" in generel is less focused and more experimental than most of his previous work with his two former bands. The song "Rosemarine" for example is one of the (more structured) fragments of a very strange larger work, called "Opel Opera - Eine dadaistische Oper in drei Akten".  This "Opera music" has all kind of different sounds, often in collage format using every usable sound source imaginable, going from hard rock snippets to buddhist singing to typewriter noise. The lyrics are a mix of bad english, german and sheer dadaist nonsense. All songs were recorded on analog 4-track.

  • Later recordings of Mike S. were (maybe) a little bit less experimental, but nevertheless still far away from mainstream rock and often reminding of psychedelic bands of the late Sixties.
  • The track "Girl in a Drop of Water" for example sounds somewhat like a crossing between the Dead's "Rosemary" and Country Joe & the Fish's "Grace" - full of strange vocals and water dripping  effects complete with accoustic guitar playing.
  • This song was one of the earliest songs Mike S. wrote and it was played only three or four times live with "Cloud Nine & the Vitamin C" in 1984/85.  The Band never recorded this song properly.
  • So here it is for the first time.
