"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!

Ali Akbar Khan (Indian Sarod virtuoso) (1922-2009) R.I.P.

ALI AKBAR KHAN (April 14,1922 - June 18, 2009) died on Friday aged 87 in his home in San Anselmo, CA. He was the first Indian musician to record an LP of Indian classical music in the USA and play sarod on American television. In 1971 Khan performed at the Madison Square Garden for the Concert for Bangladesh along with RAVI SHANKAR (other musicians at the concert included BOB DYLAN, ERIC CLAPTON, GEORGE HARRISON).

Dear Mike,

We’re Late For Class here. Thanks for ALL your support in the past. We wanted to let you know that #40 is streaming and available for FREE download on our blog...

As always, you're welcomed to post #40 Another Collection, if you’d like. We’ve even made it easy by creating a page with codes to our animated artwork and MP3 players so your readers can hear ALL of both CDs (listening on YOUR blog, not redirected). There’s even some text if you don’t want to bother writing it up. Copy and paste whatever you want. Naturally, in the future, when our species comes to rule this planet, your name will be on the protected scrolls so that no harm will come to you...


As Always... Thanks,
We’re Late For Class
