I got a CD in the mail today.
Its from Kev (Nimrod) and i'm going to listen to a little bit of it on the way to church tonight.
Glad it arrived safely Todd, heres whats on it....(for you too Joost), I purposely went for more laid back stuff that I love, some quite rare stuff on there, please give it a few listens, I look forward to hearing what you like and what sucks
1) I Had A Dream - Midnight Circus
circa 1972, psyche English group, very rare, if you have this on original vinyl its worth a fortune
2) Grail - Spring
from another early 70's psyche limey band, very rare again, one album band. (lyrics are beautiful)
3) Anywhere - Grobschnitt
70's German band who turned very proggy, this is a stunningly beautiful ballad of theirs
4) I cant Help It - Klaatu
Canadian Beatles type band Im sure youve heard
5) Think Of Me With Kindness - Gentle Giant
Absolutely beautiful melody & words, they didnt normally play stuff like this, English 70's great band
6) Swedish Nights - Anyones daughter
Well known 70's german band psyche type stuff, didnt always sing in English
7) The Kiss - Judee Sill
One of my favourite songs of all time, 70's American, she died alone of an overdose in 79 after turning to prostitution to feed her habit, sadly she never quite made it like Carol King etc
The World Goes On - Barclay James Harvest
English 70's psyche, you have heard me mention them Im sure, this song just grabs you after a few listens
9) Supertwister - Camel
an instrumental from English 70's band..
10) The Wind At Eve - Madden & Harris
Aussie Duo 70's, one album, very rare, gentle, poetic, nice..
11) The Light - Midnight Circus
12) And I Wish I Were Stoned - Caravan
again 70's English psyche/symphonic band, this track changes a fair bit, Always loved it.
13) At The End Of The Day - Nimrod
One by your friend down under, I wrote this many years ago
