"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!

Mitch Mitchell (Jimi Hendrix Experience) R.I.P.

Former JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE drummer MITCH MITCHELL died on Wednesday, November 12th, in the age of 61.

Mitchell's pre-Experience bands included THE PRETTY THINGS, THE RIOT SQUAD (together with JON LORD) and GEORGE FAME AND HIS BLUE FLAMES.
He was only 19 years old, when he joined the JH EXPERIENCE and played in the HENDRIX trio (together with bass player NOEL REDDING) from October 1966 to mid-1969. Mitchell was also a member of HENDRIX' Woodstock band GYPSY SUN AND RAINBOWS and also backed musicians like JOHN LENNON, MUDDY WATERS and JEFF BECK.
Mitchell came from a jazz background and was strongly influenced by the style of JOHN COLTRANE drummer ELVIN JONES among other jazzers.
