"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!

RICHARD WRIGHT, the great PINK FLOYD Keyboarder, died Monday, September 15th 2008 from cancer in the age of 65.

"In my view, all the greatest Pink Floyd moments are the ones where he is in full flow. No-one can replace Richard Wright – he was my musical partner and my friend." (David Gilmour)

Wright's richly textured keyboard layers were a vital ingredient of Pink Floyd's sound. He also sang background vocals and occasionally lead vocals on many PF songs, notably "Time", "Wearing The Inside Out", "Echoes" and "Astronomy Domine". Among his finest compositions for PF were "The Great Gig in The Sky", "Us and Them", "Shine On You Crazy Diamond pt. 9", "Summer '68", "Sysyphus" and the forgotten single b-side "Paintbox". 
He also released 2 solo albums, "Wet Dream" (1978) and "Broken China" (1996) and a collaboration work with Dave Harris under the name "Zee" (1984).
Wright also played live on the last David Gilmour "On An Island"-Tour, shining brightly especially on "Echoes". – He will be missed!!!
