"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!

Mad Magic - Mad Magic (GER. 1992)

No psychedelic music today!
MAD MAGIC evolved out of a party cover band from Mainz, Germany, called FURY'S RIDE, that played JIMI HENDRIX-, ROLLING STONES-, early KINKS- and YARDBIRDS-songs and the like. FURY'S RIDE was active in the late 1980s, early 1990s, and when guitarist Hans Frommer wrote more and more songs and the band played more gigs in the Rhein-Main area, the name was changed to MAD MAGIC.
Without a doubt Hans Frommer was the central figure in the band. He played a solid rock guitar in ROLLING STONES or KINKS fashion (or even, more relaxed, the DOOBIE BROTHERS), wrote songs with great hooklines and melodies, reminding of his old heroes, with an occasional reggae rhythm thrown in for a change. And most of all his voice and singing style brings to mind STEVE MILLER in his prime.
MAD MAGIC played some festivals, concerts and private partys near Mainz and even made a small tour through the south of France – and then split after a few years in the mid-nineties.
Listen to Hans' newer songs on his homepage and download some of them here!
