Extremely rare and sought-after album shows a very different side to the incredibly rich Turkish music scene of the late 1960's/early 1970's, with gravelly vocals and introspective folk rock arrangements; a mostly calm album with incredible songs and lyrics from revered songwriter Bulent Ortacgil, recorded in 1973 or 1974; regarded by Hans Pokora's Record Collector Dreams book as psych folk, where it received four stars; musical support provided by a team of dynamite musicians including Onno Tunc and Atilla Ozdemiroglu; booklet includes lyrics and photos.

Caetano Veloso - Araca Azul (1973)

I dunno how many of you have this album or what, but I uploaded it for someone else and I figured that I'd share it with you all, also. It is Caetano Veloso's Araca Azul from 1973. It's a very, very nice and breezy album. I really do suggest that you check it out.


There's the link. I hope you enjoy it a great deal.


you are all ghosts so you should be able to identify

Margareta Pislaru (Margareta Paslaru)

Posted by wellsjc on 2007.02.11 at 20:36


A relatively obscure Romanian pop/folk musician. She has created a number of rare and interesting albums and worked in the film industry as an actor and as a score writer. She has a most wonderful voice and it can barely be expressed in a few words. Her style and panache needs to be heard and enjoyed.

The Flute is Hans Reffert and the Voice is Hans Brandeis. Together, they combine to make a most beautiful sound and a great album with this album here.

I'm sitting here and listening to the second song called "Fairies" and as soon as the singing pauses and there's a slight lull, I feel like I'm about to drift away and then suddenly, the flute comes in and takes me away more quickly than the soft picks on the cords. It's absolutely amazing.

When the two met, they were witnessing a wonderful Indian Sitar performance and that's when it clicked. They picked up plenty of inspiration from Indian music, but that's not really where a large portion came. They also had plenty of influences in the field of Jazz music along with a large folk inspiration.

This album is ripped at 192 mp3.
The title is Hallo Rabbit

Hallo Rabbit
Scottish Rock

Seven amazing songs that seem to flow together in perfection. This album is a must have for anyone remotely interested in folk music.

Pesnyary - Pesnyary Psych Folk from Russia 1974

Posted by wellsjc on 2007.02.02 at 19:05
Not less than nine piece band, they combined rock and folk music in a way no one did before.

The first Pesnyary recordings date back to 1969 (now some are available on compilation CD's issued in 1996). These were the cover versions of the Beatles with Russian lyrics. (Think that every Soviet Union band passed such "Beatles cover versions" period in the beginning of the career).

But it didn't take long for Pesnyary to develop their own, absolutely unique sound. Not less than nine piece band, they combined rock and folk music in a way no one did before. Bjelorussian folk is a specific music, very tender and melodical, filled with sorrow rather than with joy. Pesnyary didn't just make rock arrangements of folk songs, they developed and enriched these songs at the same time taking great care of the original passion and soul. One can find many elements of psychedelia in their earlier works and progressive moves in the later albums. All their LP's are highly recommended.

Sadly, the Soviet music officials were not sleeping... All the bands of the seventies had to include in their repertoire the songs by "official" writers and composers. But these tracks, moving to pop in style, in Pesnyary's versions became massive hits and are popular even nowadays.

All the band members were the top class players and the vocal group was exceptional. Using traditional folk instruments - horns, strings and others (don't know how are they called in English) combined with organ and electric guitar sometimes produced very psychedelic effect. The first, self titled LP saw the light of day in 1971 (by the way the second and third albums were as well self-titled, don't be confused!).

This is the second album. It was released in 1974.

Give it a whirl and lemme know what you think.


I had a conversation with MZA recently about who my favorite of all time was and I said that if we're talking about straight up all time favorite despite the fact that there's only one album done by the band, then this is it.

I don't know what it is exactly about this artist that makes them my favorite, but this is. I think I've shared it with people in the past, but I wanted to do it again. I also don't know if I shared it here. So, here it is.

There is very little to be found about the artist Colonel Bagshot, or at least little that I've found about them, but I really like this album and absolutely love the song Six Day War on the album. The album that I have here is relatively poor quality (it says 160 bitrate, but I don't necessarily believe that it was originally that rate). I got it on soulseek a while back and will one day own this record.

This is a very poor quality image of the band.

Here's the album.

This is the record.

The Six Day War, also known as the June War, was fought in 1967 between Israel and Egypt, Jordan and Syria. This was the war which put the Gaza Strip and West Bank under Israeli control. In rhetoric about the situation in Israel and Palestine, there tends to be a lot of talk about pre- and post-1967 borders, which refer to the borders before and after this war. This track is about the war.

Track list:
01. Six Day War
02. Lay It Down
03. Lord High Human Being
04. Headhunters
05. I've Seen the Light
06. Dirty Delilah Blues
07. Sometimes
08. That's What I'd Like to Know
09. Smile
10. Tightrope Tamer
11. Oh, What a Lovely War!
