5.0 out of 5 stars Rebecca And The Sunnybrook Farmers - Birth - (us 1969) - cd, 7 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Birth (Audio CD)
A Great Album sound good and have a good vibe ,...Vinyl is hard to find i guess...

This eclectic blend of folk, pop, jazz and acid rock originally appeared in the US in '69, and makes its long-overdue CD debut here
Boasting no less than three female singers in its line-up, the band played ballads, pop songs and freaky psychedelic rock, set to complex arrangements incorporating electric guitar, violin and sitar
Despite gigging with acts such as Jethro Tull, Alice Cooper, and Blood, Sweat and Tears, they didn't break through, leaving behind only this neglected gem

Here are many odd things about the sole release from Rebecca and the Sunnybrook Farmers
First of all, the album was recorded in one weekend
The band drove up to New York from their hometown of Pittsburgh, recorded the album, and went home
Secondly, the album's label, Musicor Records, was primarily a country label
The only other hippie band on the label was the equally obscure Tingling Mothers Circus. Third, the bluegrass sounding band name; while hippies often DO have farms(especially indoor ones), the band name is hardly an indicator of the freakiness present on the album
And that's just the beginning: there are two Ilenes in the band (although one is really Lauren Wood), no one is actually named Rebecca, there is a violin player, and the band is nearly eclectic to a fault
And yet, the album holds together under the weight of all this strangeness, managing to deliver a solid set of songs that are enthsuiastically and imaginatively played
Side One is especially strong
"Two Blind Sisters" is a beautiful, baroque tearjerker, "Endless Trip" is a nice slice of West Coast pop, and "David and Sally" fairly represents the band's kooky, old-world side
Side two veers away from pop, with only slightly less success
"Better Dead than Red" starts off innocuously enough in a reflective, soft-psych mode, only to explode into a barrage of gunfire sound effects, whistles, and cacophonous drumming
If you can track down a copy,
I highly recommended this album, especially the songs composed and sung by Lauren Wood, a gifted songwriter who still plays to this day....

4.0 out of 5 stars Maltese Falcon - Metal Rush - LE cd, 14 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Metal Rush (Audio CD)
"Metal Rush" by MALTESE FALCON from Denmark certainly is a classic of the old days
The band were close friends with a certain Lars Ulrich (METALLICA), long before he emigrated to America and became a money counter. He also was responsible for the name of the band
The name Maltese Falcon was given to them by their good friend ,who was none other than ....Lars Ulrich (Metallica)!
Ulrich took the name from a 1930 detective novel by Dashiell Hammett ( there were two movie adaptation of the book)
Unfortunately the band does not make music anymore today, but Hasse "Hal" Patino should be known to many people, as he plays with KING DIAMOND & FORCE OF EVIL.

Musically you get classic stomping Metal in between ACCEPT, JUDAS PRIEST and old IRON MAIDEN with a very belligerent squaller behind the mic
Not really extraordinary yet nice tunes that still rock decently today...The Metal landscape nowadays should rather dream about songs like
"Heavy'N'Loud" or "Metal Rush"

Track Listing
1) Alive
2) Rats
3) Mammas In Town
4) Heavy 'N' Loud
5) Rebellion
6) Headbanger
7) On Fire
8) Metal Rush

HAWKWIND: PARALLEL UNIVERSE-A LIBERTY / UNITED ARTISTS ANTHOLOGY 1970-1974
( Triple CD Journey Through the Mind-Altering Space-Rock of Hawkwind / 12 Unreleased Tracks )
----
Following the release last year of 'Hawkwind At The BBC 1972', EMI Records are to release: 'Parallel Universe' - A Triple CD that is an extensive journey through Hawkwind's mind-altering space rock
This exciting 3CD Anthology set is due from EMI Records in August 2011
'Parallel Universe' is a significant release that as well as containing a good cross-section of the band's output over the first five years, (the band was actually formed in 1969), pulls together a slew of material that's previously been available as Bonus Tracks on the EMI remasters from a few years back, plus a selection of Previously Unreleased United Artists - era tracks including studio versions of: 'It's So Easy' and 'You'd Better Believe It', a very different studio cut of 'Wind Of Change', alternative vocals on a studio recording of 'Seven By Seven' and new songs: 'Hog Farm' and what's listed as being a previously unreleased track: 'Take What You Can', which actually appeared on a 'Weird Tapes' release under the title: 'Make What You Can', although at this stage we don't know if it is the same recording or another previously unknown version
This package of great tracks is something that no serious Hawkwind fan or collector should be without
These are the seminal recordings of the band - the essence of what Hawkwind was at that time, and was all about
The sleeve notes for this highly anticipated releases are by Nik Turner
