Vertigo Mixed By Andy Votel

"This is where it starts. If you have any love for 70's rock or the weird and wonderful then you must buy this. A collage of snippets that make a single piece of music by some of the bands below:"
Gracious! / This Is...Gracious!
Gracious! / This Is...Gracious!
"This band were used as the blueprint for Vertigo Mixed. Each of the songs is a grouping of lots of different ideas. Some are great some not so, but always entertaining. Lots of tasty organ throughout"
Warhorse

"Formed by ex Purple bassist and future Wakeman vocalist. Vulture Blood and Burning are outstanding. Some of the rest is lacking that final spark. Think Purple-lite."
It's Getting Better
It's Getting Better
"Rock funk from Germany with massive female vocals. This is a seriously good album. Similar to Gillan's Clear Air, but more fun."

"I hoped for so much more. Mid table boogie rock that should have been great, but falls short."

"Amazing album. In the same vein as the Dead's Dark Star. All cosmic guitar licks and spacy vibes. Check it out."

"Heavy 3 piece rock band. Some of the tracks are great, but a couple of fillers let the side down a little. Check out their 1st LP as well."
Affinity

"Top drawer jazzy rock with female vocals, leaning more to the jazz on some tracks. Another well worth hunting down."
Three Parts to My Soul

"Dr Z were in a class of their own. Harpsichord prog anyone? Either inspired lunacy or insane folly. Can't quite make up my mind yet."

"Easily in the top 5 best prog albums of all time category. Vangelis and Demis Rousos in a mindblowing 2 disc epic."
Valentyne Suite

"It starts with the blinding Kettle made famous by Fat Boy Slim. What a song. Valentine Suite lets Dave Greenslade shows what he's made of on the organ. Very recommended."
Chapter III Vol 1

"Forget the Manfred of the 60's. This is hard jazz rock, with very little guitar and a sterling brass section. Just listen to the simmering Devil Woman. Amazing"
Trace

"Ah. This is terrible. Second division ELP. The follow up album 'Birds' is worse however."
Very 'Eavy Very 'Umble

"First Heep album and contains the mighty Gypsy and Wake Up. Some of the other tunes haven't aged quite as well."
Labyrinth, Roots

"Great jazz with various members of Soft Machine. Give this and Elastic Rock a try."
Janne Schaffer

"Instrumental jazz rock guitar with excellent Jethro Tull flute throughout."
Gravy Train

"This album is good, but I prefer Ballad for Peaceful Man. Similar to Jethro Tull, but with less emphasis on folk and a bit more prog. Really good stuff."
Cressida

"Wow. Genuine lost classic. Lots of melloton, organ. Very organic, getting back to the country feel. Think Moodies with better songs."
Through The Years
Through The Years
"Very reminiscent of early Humble Pie. Doesn't really do much until the last track 'Toe Grabber' which is brilliant. Worth owning the album just for this one song."

"Cut and paste album, similar in concept to Gracious, but no where near as interesting. Some good bits but overall disappointing."
