Joop Stokkermans - The Magic of the ARP-Synthesizer (1970, NL, electronic) 
Thursday, March 8, 2007, 06:29 PM - Music, - NL, English
Stokkermans is a famous composer in the Netherlands. He wrote the music for television series like Q & Q, Oebele, Tita Tovenaar, Kunt U Mij De Weg Naar Hamelen Vertellen Meneer, Barbapapa and De Berenboot. And he wrote songs for Dutch artists like Jasperina de Jong, Rob de Nijs, Paul de Leeuw, Saskia & Serge and Ronnie Tober.
All terrible in my opinion, consider yourself lucky if you don't know those names.
In 1970 he got fascinated by the wonder of the synthesizer and made an album with the ARP of Roddy de Hilster, who programmed the sounds. Bert Paige was the orchestra conductor.



I bought this lp last week from an accordion enthusiast who sold all his records.

Side one:
1 Electronic air
2 I should have known
3 Tijd...
4 Dansen met de Fransen
5 This guy's in love with you

Side two:
1 Je t'attends
2 Blij zijn zolang het nog kan
3 Uren
4 The Swan

The server will be moved to another location tomorrow morning (C.E.T.). It also gets a new ip-number, so it takes a while before all the name servers pick that up.



Blueprint - Prototypes (1980, UK/CA, pub rock/new wave) 
Tuesday, March 6, 2007, 07:50 PM - Music, - CA, - UK, English
Prototypes was a sampler by the Blueprint label. On it, 2 songs each of four acts: Fabulous Poodles, Karel Fialka, The Crooks and B.B.Gabor. The bands had not much in common and Blueprint was not a success and disappeared soon.
I personally like the dark synthesizer work of Karel Fialka the best.



Side one:
1 Fabulous Poodles - Mirror Star [4:25]
2 Fabulous Poodles - Pink City Twist [2:17]
3 Karel Fialka - Armband [3:27]
4 Karel Fialka - People are Strange (Doors cover) [3:02]

Side two:
1 The Crooks - Modern Boys [2:45]
2 The Crooks - Sound of Today [2:46]
3 B.B. Gabor - Soviet Jewellery [2:35]
4 B.B. Gabor - All the Time [5:02]

The Love Machine - Electronic Music to Blow Your Mind By!!! (1968, US, electronic) 
Saturday, March 3, 2007, 06:44 PM - Music, - US, English
This is 60's library beat with Hammond organ and they put all the effects on it they could get their hands on. Like Jimmie Haskell did on his exotica Countdown album and Belgium band The Free Pop Electronic Concept on A New Exciting Experience.
My copy is a bootleg cd (Zippy). The last 2 songs are so disturbed, I can't believe this was on the original record. But you never now.
Lp released on Design Album.



01 Mindblower
02 Zenquake
03 Clockburst
04 Bells for Eternal Zoom
05 Inner Ear Freakout
06 The Shadows of Vibrate
07 Prism on Prism
08 Lunar Sea
09 Ashbury Trippin'
10 Coming Down

Sammie America's Gasphetti - Too much understanding (1980, NL, art rock) 
Friday, March 2, 2007, 07:35 PM - Music, - NL, English
Sammie America's Gasphetti was the band of the Dutch artist Tom America, he later formed MAM. I found this single on the attic of a youth center and you can hear that. My noise filter did its job, but still... The b-side, Orange, is so short, they play it twice and it still does under the two minutes.

The Donkeys - Don't Go - Let's Float (1980-1981, UK, power pop) 
Thursday, March 1, 2007, 07:22 PM - Music, - UK, English
I must admit, it was a little disappointment when I heard this again. In my mind the Donkeys were excellent, but they are only quite good. A bit like the Jam in the early days. I like the close harmony singing.
I have, and post, the two last singles (from four) they released.
Later they released two singles under the name Donkees.
You can get them on cd.



1 Don't Go
2 Living Legends
3 Let's Float
4 Strike Talks

You can download the first single What I Want/Four Letters at 7 inch punk (size does matter).

The Delta Merchant - Switched on Blues (1970, US, electronic/soul) 
Saturday, February 24, 2007, 10:39 PM - Music, - US, English
This is not so much moog as you would expect from the title. Only in a few songs it plays the main role. In the others it does the brass part.
It even is not really blues, more soul.
I hope I have the titles right, on the label the a and b side were switched and on the cover one title was missing. Soul is not my cup of tea, so I don't recognize all the melodies.



Side one:
1 Slip Away [2:38]
2 Funky Broadway [3:12]
3 Soul Man [2:28]
4 Midnight Hour [2:30]
5 Chain of Fools [2:54]
6 Son of a Preacher Man [3:27]

Side two:
1 Hold on, I'm coming [2:53]
2 See Saw [2:37]
3 Drown in my own Tears [4:21]
4 After Hours [3:06]
5 What'd I Say [2:46]
6 Rainin' in my Heart [2:38]
