Vol. III - The Stone Of Cold Fire
So this is the third installment out of a collection of four. This is actually the shortest of all four, this one ends at around a mere 28.5 mintures. One track played continuously without any sort of texture or planned elements. Super lofi, ambient noise stuff. I highly enjoy it, then again i am highly biased - this i will openly admit. It's not an easy listen as most people dont have the patience to listen to a single track upwards of 30+ minutes and such. This Volume takes you through some highs and some low lows, really dark and menacing with a sort of perpetual tranquility. Five completly different influenced and minded people combine to create a really unique sound.Those looking for some highly drugged out music, you'll probably really enjoy listening to this, as everyone that i know whose listen to it under some sort of influence have proclaimed how it blew their mind and took them on a fucking journey.
Super rare mightily awesome early 70's gem. Normally you wont see me include the words "Prog" and "Awesome" anywhere near eachother unless we are referring to this time period. But this cd is just a straight up phenominal cd. Within the first 5 minutes of the intro you are taken on a fucking journey sounding similar to a blastoff from flower travellin' band but played and versed in Italian. From the moment you hit around 6 minutes deep it just fucking transcends into some amazing amazing stuff. Heavy Psyche Influence and Synthesized soundscapes. The only fault i can throw on this release is the first 2 minutes of Epilogue as it sounds mighty homoreficlly powermetalesque mixed in with some fucking lsd ridden freakouts.
Another Fantastic, Italian Spaced out Progy jam album. Another rare early 70's gem. It reminds me a lot of the hard fuzzed out psychedelica that was coming out in chile at the time like fire and pax, etc. but with more prog and folk elements involved. The cd is a journey though, it dips in and out of funk jams to out of this planeterium rock indulgences. Another cd highly rec'd from Dusty from Danava to me. So from him, to me, to you all - enjoy.

-Pee Wee Get My Gun-
T didnt pick up a guitaraway until we was like 60 years old. Shit doesnt retract from his greatness tho. Motherfucker can play the blues and he has a shitload of inspiration for it. Not only is he poor as fuck, old, his wives done left him and not educated at all. But when he was a small child his father beat him so bad when he was out picking cotton that one of his balls popped out of his nut sack and dangled down his little leg.(his words). This is some real shit here.
-You Better Run(The Essential Junior Kimbrough)-
This is the Essential Junior Kimbrough. From start to finish this is absolutely flawless. Junior alike the other few artists i have posted in here, play some real blues. His style is impenetrataeble and fucking infectious. Straight up some grown folk music. The amount of soul and energy Kimbrough put into his music is uncomprehendable. I cant say enough good things about the man, the legend, and this cd in general. This is a mandatory must own. One of the few actual albums i've been more than happy to pay for.
