""Turning Green"" by Jackie McAuley
feeling this post them & trader horne lp this am.
"all" by john gignoux
from the broadway boys
been really feeling this homemade power-pop-prog goodness since pulling it at a berkeley thrift a few months ago. the record is out of burlingame from 1980 and is on some serious suspended adolescence pop savant vibes. dude plays everything and goes from serious rundgren damage to epic genesis moves in the blink of an eye. it borders on goofball about half the time but that's all part of the charm. sorry i don't have mp3s but this link has 3 jams, of which "city things" is my favorite. lots more to appreciate from this LP, too, if you're lucky enough to find one.
"mr. brown" by bob marley
from rasta revolution
major bob kick over here today. i don't know what kind of keyboard that is but i want those tones on every record i ever purchase from here on out.
"heavenly blue" by jeffrey cain
from for you
i have hamburger and mc chim to thank for sending me down the raccoon records discography rabbit hole many years ago. it took forever - my staunch irrational hatred of, and refusal to use, ebay did not help - but i finally found raccoon #2, the first of two jeffrey cain albums and it rules. pt. reyes station hippie vibes that equal, in my mind, the much more heavily lauded michael hurley releases.
"closer to you now" by starry eyed & laughing
named after a dylan lyric but these dudes are the mid-70s pub-rock answer to the byrds. their first record is ruling me these last few weeks.
"i've been delayed" by boondoggle & balderdash
been after this for a minute now and finally ran across it in the wild over the weekend. a total back porcher.
"we free" by gary marks
rad fusion folk deal out of new york with the slightly dubious distinction of being the first recorded appearance of one john scofield. private press tim buckley maneuvers.
"bamboo dick" by chris hinze combination
from stoned flute
tasty dutch number from the early '70s. rest of the album is pretty minimal/out but this one really rips. somebody must have flipped this shit at some point but the only thing i can find is a beatnuts sample of another one of duder's tracks from a later album. sadly this youtube is an edit but you get the idea. best song title ever.
"angelitos negros" by los pasteles verdes
these dudes always kinda sound like "hotel california" to me, and i mean that in the best possible way. maybe walsh, henley, frey, et al were paying attention to the mexican pop market? love the swirling guitars, so mellow.
"all" by ron cornelius
from tin luck
finally scored a copy of this long-time want a few weeks ago. rad singer-songwriter ripper from dude who was in that east bay band west (snooze) and then played with cohen and dylan (shred). rad record from start to finish that covers a variety of sounds but with a cohesive feel over all. for a major label title this is hard as shit to find and i'm kinda surprised it's not more heavily sweated.
