"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!

Dewey Martin of the Buffalo Springfield has also left the building.

And of course - as you probably all will know by now - also STOOGES guitarist RON ASHTON has passed away Jan. 6, 2009 (from an apparent heart attack at his home). He was 60 years old.

Was not overlooked, but when I heard of his death I didn't have the time to blog; and then - a few days later - we all had already read it on every other music blog...

I wouldn't presume to take up a whole post on this as it's questionable just how "psychedelic" it is, but I helped my friend Shane record some demented, sloppy rockabilly last night that I think Lux might've appreciated...
