Action - Action (1972) [Reissue 2009]

 Action is more hard-rock than Krautrock,
 played a heavy rock/prog blend influenced by Deep Purple,
the two-part opus "Miscarriage Of Human Thinking" is the album's highlight,
with hints of Vanilla Fudge, Brian Auger and Pink Floyd.
In contrast "Hell Track" is straight ahead hard-rock

Brigade - Last Laugh (1970) [Reissue 2002]


Formed in North Portland, Oregon during the summer of 1966. Brigade won the KLSN Radio Portland Teen Fair Battle Of The Bands on 9th June 1968 and received a 1954 custom purple Cadillac Hearse as a prize! By now they were a top local attraction and the same year they signed to the American Record Company

Zabu - My Coffin's Ready 1972



ZABU, also known under the name Lucien ZABUSKI, was the first MAGMA's first singer. A part of the Thélème label, so dear to Laurent THIBAUT, "My Coffin's Ready" (1972) proves to be very different from anything we could expect, given that it is actually a French blues album. Without any pretence, this masterpiece manages to captivate the listener all along. The singer's rough and energetic voice dominates the music with great ease. We'll also notice the participation of such prestigious musicians as Christian VANDER, Francis MOZE, Teddy LASRY, Yochk'o SEFFER and Marc PERRU. As you already know, most of them are obviously part of the Zeuhl universe. Here is then a definite historic document !

Aera - Mechelwind [1973-2009-2CD]

Excellent archival release that predates their debut album "Humanum Est". This one features organist Steve Robinson from Twenty Sixty Six and Then, and plays down their later fusion tendencies. Great album, more towards traditional Krautrock, and represents a completely different side of the band.

Strollers - Waiting Is ( 1973)

Amazing album from obscure band from Malaysia The Strollers, recorded in 1973.
 '' Waiting is...'' remains as one of the best psychedelic albums ever recorded in Asia:
 superb musicianship, top sound & production and original songs sung in perfect english.
It ranges from full- blown heavy psych with killer organ,
guitar & flute to amazing UK late sixties styled pop- psych and some funkiest & proggy moments.
