Spooky Tooth - The Island Years 1967 - 1974

This set was a total blind buy.
Though I’ve known of them since the mid 70’s, and as the group Gary Wright came from, didn’t know the music, at all.

Art - Supernatural Fairy Tales

The first disc in the set is by Art, a precursor to Spooky Tooth.
Very 1967, which isn’t a bad thing.
The drumming stands out to me.
Sound is pretty good for its age

Spooky Tooth - It’s All About

The second disc from the Island Years box set. A little less psychedelic, a very good debut.
Jimmy Miller’s production and Glyn John’s engineering result in an album that sounds good for the era.
Includes an albums worth of bonus tracks, primarily non album singles and b-sides.

Marianne Faithfull-Montreux Jazz. Never listened to her, but this disc was available as an MQA disc. I am listening now to this 14 track disc, different, I am open to her now and this live disc is quite good music, her voice is a little raspy, I didn't know.
Recordings are betweeen 1995 and 2009.
Stereo-16/44.1 MQA complete unfolds to 88.2 KHz. DR's are mostly 8's and 9's. Well recorded. Lots of covers.

You should hear Cornholio sing "Lesbian Seagull"
Have you heard the
Son Of Man
albums "Son Of Man" & "State Of Dystopia"?
Both excellent, George Jones (son of Micky Jones) fronts them, seen them twice really good live, very much like Man!

Very good rock & roll.
IMO -Better singing than Man & good lyrics.
While the songs were good I felt that they lacked the "Space Rock" 70's vibe of the original band.

Spooky Tooth & Pierre Henry - Ceremony

I like this album despite Pierre Henry’s pointless noises.
I’d be fine with the electronic burblings if they fit the music, but they don’t.
Spooky’s music is good, kinda jammy in places: The vocals sound pinched but the instrumentation is OK if thin. The guitar work on Hosanna is great.

I only saw Man once in the mid-70s (I think I have most of the albums though!). Yes I'd agree the 70s feel isn't there, but if you get a chance to see Son Of Man live do, full of energy as per Man.

Deep Purple ‎– In Rock
Audio Fidelity gold CD
Mr. Hoffman's notes on mastering this CD:
"The Deep Purple In Rock album always sounded to me like it was recorded with the engineer turning everything up to 11.
Every other version I've ever heard sounds like someone tried to fix the sound using limiting and EQ (which is totally the wrong approach) rather than just accept it for what it is"

You all got me thinking about this Chicago Carnegie Hall set.
Stop it!
I can’t afford or justify it ….LOL

Im in the same boat - then 2 realizations hit ---- 1) I dont need to justify my passion, my hobby - and 2) Its only money and ya cant take it with you when you die.

I will be ordering. Afterall, its rock-n-roll with horns !!
