Once There Was A Time When Tim
Once There Was A Time When Tim
Price: £11.88

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for anyone who likes to try "something a bit ..., 6 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sort of cross between 1960s psychedelia & prog rock. Largely instrumental, with improvisations by a very talented band of musicians. Recommended for anyone who likes to try "something a bit diffferent", but may not be to everybody's taste. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Dana Fuchs - magnificent., 2 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Live In Nyc (Audio CD)
Sadly neglected by UK mainstream radio, Dana Fuchs is one of the finest female rock singers of the past 20 years. Backed by a fine band, this album of mainly blueish rock is highly recommended. In addition to her own songs, there is a storming cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent prog rock compilation. album, 2 Mar. 2016

An excellent compilation selected from some of the best work of Dutch prog rock maestro Arjen Anthony Lucassen. Although issued at an Ayreon album, it includes a few tracks from Arjen's Star One band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Psychedelia updated., 2 Mar. 2016

This review is from: Dead Meadow (Audio CD)
Updated psychedelic rock - slow but loud & well performed. Maybe not quite as much musical variety as some later work. Bass dominates the mix, sometimes partly obscuring the vocals.


Shivering King And Others

Price: £9.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Play it slow but loud - modern psychedelic rock., 2 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bass dominates the mix, and rather overwhelms most of the vocals, but with more than enough content from the guitar & percussion to stop it becoming tedious - personally, I think it is great. Very different from the "play it fast" class of heavy rock. A sort of updated 1960s psychedelia combined with bluesy rock. Not easy to compare them to any other single band, but hints of Vanilla Fudge, Blue Cheer, Cream, early Floyd & early Zeppelin in my opinion, but played at the pace of some of Creedence Clearwater Revival's swamp rock..


Flight of Frumious Banderstatch
Flight of Frumious Banderstatch
Price: £16.72

4.0 out of 5 stars but it is mostly a bit better than that, 2 Sept. 2014
Frumious Bandersnatch was a psychedelic rock band in San Francisco in the late 1960s, achieving little commercial success. In 2008, David Denny, Jack King, Ross Valory, Jimmy Warner & Bobby Winkleman reunited to issue "The Flight of the Frumious Bandersnatch". The music is mostly laid-back rock, with some hints of 60s psychedelia. Some might describe it as pop rock, but it is mostly a bit better than that. I can best try to describe the sound by suggesting you imagine a cross between Bread and Simon & Garfunkel, with occasional hints of Dylan or Journey (of which Ross Valory was a founder member.)


Love of the Amateur
Love of the Amateur
Offered by SKYETORI
Price: £14.44

4.0 out of 5 stars Dan Stuart, once lead singer with Green On Red ..., 25 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Love of the Amateur (Audio CD)
Dan Stuart, once lead singer with Green On Red, joined with musician/producer JD Foster and two Italian musicians, Antonio Gramentieri & Diego Sapignoli to form The Slummers, of which "Love of the amateur" is the only album released to date. In musical style, it is a bit of a mixed bag, some up-tempo rock songs reminiscent of Green On Red, sometimes resembling 1960s hippy era psychedelia, and some slow laid-back rock ballads. No dud songs in my opinion, but the mixture won't be to everyone's taste.
