"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!

Jimmy Carl Black (Mothers Of Invention) (1938-2008) R.I.P.

Just read at the Captain Beefheart blog that Jimmy Carl Black, drummer, occasional singer and Indian of the group in ZAPPA's MOTHERS OF INVENTION passed away November 1st, 2008, aged 70.
Black played in the M.O.I. from 1964 - 1969 and he also appeared in ZAPPA's movie "200 Motels", singing as one of the highlights of that weird semi-psychedelic movie "Lonesome Cowboy Burt". In the seventies Black toured with CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & THE MAGIC BAND and later was involved with various band projects, like the GRANDMOTHERS (a bunch of ex-Zappa musicians) or the MUFFIN MEN.
