5.0 out of 5 stars Indonesia: 1970-1978 16 Mar 2011
By OMG! It's got a plug! TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The title of this release from Now-Again Records promises much and it more than lives up to that promise - this is one of the best various artists compilation albums I've heard in years. From start to finish it is nothing short of stunning. Unlike other Middle and Far East music scenes of the 1960s and 1970s that took inspiration from the US & UK and added a local twist, the Indonesians played straight-up western style music. And on the evidence here they were capable of writing quality songs.

Infused with the spirit of Black Sabbath, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin and James Brown to name but a few, this is not lightweight tribute music - it's highly original and heady stuff. Fuzz guitar, thundering guitar riffs, solid percussion, trippy prog & psych and funk vibes - it's all here and much more. And these artists could really play - there wasn't much of a record scene in 1970's Indonesia so they earned their chops playing live.

Special mention must go to the extraordinary packaging - the CD is housed in a cardboard sleeve and is accompanied by a lavish booklet and these are both housed in a sturdy outer sleeve. The booklet gives a very detailed overview of the Indonesian music scene and the artists featured and is filled with archive and record sleeve photos. All songs have been re-mastered so the sound quality is excellent. Playing time is a generous 75 minutes.

Turn up the volume, kick back and listen to an album that will feature near the top of most end of year lists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Good 8 Mar 2013
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
If someone had asked me a year ago what I imagined Indonesian rock from the 70s sounded like, I might have said something derogatory. It was only some of the insistent reviews here that made me suspect that here lay a musical goldmine waiting to be tapped. And I agree 100% with the others, I have tons of psych, prog and funk, so it was up against a lot of stiff competition in my music collection, but it was still love on first listen for me. In fact as the others have indicated, a lot of this music is far more interesting than that which their western counterparts were producing, and it has a pretty unique sound a bit different to anything you'll find in your music collection. I struggled to get the CD out of and back into the packaging, although attractively made, but I only needed to do that once as I then ripped it onto the harddrive. This collection made me realize just how valuable a 'Fuzz, Acid and Flowers' for Asian psych/prog/funk would be, one can only hope Vernon Joynson will take on the task some day.

4.0 out of 5 stars not Vinyl : CD 17 Feb 2011
Format:Vinyl
Beware of what Amazon consider as a Vinyl. It is not at all the 3 LP sold at the label, but a CD box.
Beyound that, it's a beautiful product with plenty of texts and pictures, and the music is amazingly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Shocking Shaking Triumph 5 Oct 2011
By Alabaster Sheets - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
NowAgain Records pulled out all the stops on their compilation of Indonesian Heavy Psych Funk, Those Shocking Shaking Days. This 3 vinyl set contains a wide range of music in and around the above-mentioned styles that show the remarkable musicianship and creative energy that was happening in SE Asia in the 1970s. Having heard of none of these groups beforehand, I wasn't quite sure what I was in for... but was excited to dive in after reading the universal praise for this compilation on the web. This collection does not disappoint. Shark Move, AKA and the Black Brothers (all the rest as well) pile it on here and bring the psych/funk like no other. I guess one could compare this music to Black Sabbath with a bit of Can's Tago Mago and James Brown but the sounds here are unique to themselves. The compilers did a great job sequencing the songs for each disc... it has a great flow to it.

The vinyl is beautifully housed in a heavy triple gatefold sleeve that has images of the groups, record covers and records themselves and contains a beautiful book that provides background info on the songs and bands. A 5-star release all the way through. It is the kind of record set that makes one neglect the rest of one's collection.

Recommended? HELL YES.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bali High 2 April 2011
By o dubhthaigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jimmy Paige has said of this collection that there is no longer any need to record any more music. With treasures such as these, there is plenty in the vault to explore and discover.
Indeed. Turns out the only place with bad music in the 70's was the US. The CD on offer here is a best of from a multi-disc package available elsewhere, so let's hope additional volumes are on their way. The tracks here show that the Indonesian musicians readily absorbed James Brown, Led Zeppelin, Delta Blues and spun it all in an intoxicating stew flavoured genuinely with their passion for music and rhythm.
Herein you'll find uniquely Indonesian takes on psychedelia, funk, rock-gamelan, and all of it is astoundingly magical. In the opening song there is a lyric "I love all music and melody," and clearly that is the guiding ethos. And for the record, want to know where Plant got that yelp? It's all here. The march toward 1980 would result in the gamelan structure of a renewed King Crimson and a world approach by Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel. The roots must have been not just in Fela but in this Malaysian curry. This is a great disc.

Just finished listening to this comp for the first time. I felt compelled to declare to others who might be interested in checking it out - come on in, the water's fine!

Don't know that there's much I can add to what the first reviewer has said except that I've got a damn good set of ears and am a music snob of gargantuan proportions. Take my word for it, this set delivers the goods. End of story. Period. Peace.

4.0 out of 5 stars various artists Indonesian psyche-rock 8 July 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After reading all the glowing reviews for this compilation I eventually relented and ordered it from Amazon (it's not the sort of CD I'm likely to find in the bins of CD shops where I live in Bangkok). Overall I like this CD a lot, although I'm not quite as awestruck as some of the other reviewers. I'm not some sort of picky audiophile so I don't mind the lack of "slick" sound quality on these dated recordings, all of which were most likely culled from vinyl records or perhaps even cassette tapes. So actually, considering the source material and the fact that these recordings are from 1970-78, the compilers did a great job of making these songs sound as good as they do on this CD.

The style of music on this CD is described in the booklet as "Indonesian Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock and Funk" and that sums it up pretty well, although I really don't hear much that qualifies as "funk" in my musical dictionary. A few tracks sound a bit too derivative of other 70s-era Western bands (I'd swear one of them is, in fact, a cover, with the lyrics changed), but there also some really incredible tunes on here that would blow the minds of most fans of 70s psyche and hard rock, bursting with wicked, fuzzy guitar licks and propulsive keyboard work. My two favorite songs are "Evil War" by Shark Move and "Candle Light" by Benny Soebardja and Lizard. Not surprisingly, Soebardja was also the vocalist and guitarist in Shark Move. Clearly, this guy was one of the country's rock talents. I'd love to hear by him and his various bands.

Like one reviewer, I was puzzled why there are no songwriting credits on this CD. Along with giving us a very interesting selection of music, the compilers did a fantastic job of putting together a very thick booklet with vintage photos, reproductions of the old records, a history of the Indonesian music scene, and even rosters of the band members for most of these acts. With all that attention to detail, not having the songwriters listed certainly is a bit odd. But the compilers do offer one explanation at the back of the booklet: "Due to the obscurity of some of the recordings contained within this compilation, we were unable to locate the owners of select master recordings. We have created an escrow account for royalties that come due, and hope that the owners will find out about this compilation and contact us." So ... at least they appear sincere and diligent in their duty. And once again, they have put together a really impressive CD compilation. Well worth getting.
