Vanilla Fudge - Renaissance (1968) ATCO Records/SD 33-244 - 1st US Pressing - LP In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Vanilla Fudge - Renaissance
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz / 900mb
Label: ATCO Records/SD 33-244 | Released: 1968 | Genre: Psychedelic-Rock

Another fundamental brick in the prog-rock music wall.
This band started its career by doing artistic cover versions from tunes composed by other people, and this third album presents their own matured composing skills. Earlier "The Beat Goes On" was more like an abstract artsy tryout when compared to this masterpiece in my opinion. The most dominant elements are still the strong organ chord layers, powerful vocal harmonies and very strong emotional load, resembling a state of religious pathos.
Vanilla Fudge - Vanilla Fudge (1967) ATCO Records/SD 33-224 - 1st US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Vanilla Fudge - Vanilla Fudge

Label: ATCO Records/SD 33-224 | Released: 1967 | Genre: Psychedelic-Rock

Essential: A masterpiece of psych-rock music collection.
Vanilla Fudge are a pioneering psychedelic band with a superb lineup and are famous for psyching up well known cover versions. Their debut albums features some of their best and most popular material such as the stunning' You Keep Me Hanging On', 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'She's Not There'.
Crosby, Stills & Nash – CSN (1977) Atlantic/SD 19104 – 1st US Presswell Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Crosby, Stills & Nash – CSN
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Mastered By Howard Albert/Ron Albert
Label: Atlantic/SD 19104 | Release: 1977 | Genre: Country-Rock

What’s so instantly striking about Crosby, Stills and Nash’s CSN, their second group album in eight years, is that it sounds so much like the debut LP even though its makers are so vastly changed. Since CS&N, and later Y, were always at the vanguard of the conspicuous counterculture (always ready to hoist their tie-dyed freak flag at a moment’s notice), their current reflection and hesitancy are especially interesting. And, because the music is so eerily familiar, the album communicates a kind of time warp (imagine if we knew in 1969 what we know now) that’s compelling and troubling.
Crosby, Stills & Nash – Daylight Again (1982) Atlantic/SD 19360 –  1st US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Crosby, Stills & Nash – Daylight Again
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Mastered at Sheffield Lab Matrix by Stan Ricker
Label: Atlantic/SD 19360 | Release: 1982 | Genre: Country-Rock

Although Crosby, Stills & Nash had, in effect, been together for well over a decade when Daylight Again (1982) was issued, it was only their third studio long-player of concurrently new material.
Billy Cobham – Spectrum (1973) Atlantic/SD 7268 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Billy Cobham – Spectrum
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Atlantic/SD 7268 | Released: 1973 | This Issue: 197? |Genre: Jazz-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
There’s no question that Billy Cobham is one of the most talented and influencial drummers on the planet. I had high hopes going into this one that it would be another “Birds Of Fire” shred-fest. Not quite, although the first song delivers big time in that style. Jan Hammer, his old MAHIVISHNU ORCHESTRA band mate helps out, while Tommy Bolin doesn’t disappoint on guitars. We also get some bass, sax, flugelhorn, trumpet and flute to round out this mostly jazzy sounding album.
Focus ‎– Hamburger Concerto (1974) ATCO Records/SD 36-100 - CA Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Focus ‎– Hamburger Concerto
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz
Label: ATCO Records/SD 36-100 | Release: 1974 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Focus has always been a band with sense of humor, not only for the strange sounds and yodeling emitted by Thijs Van Leer but also for the jokes they made of sacred cows.
For example Hamburger Concerto is a play of words with Brandenburg Concerto by Johan Sebastian Bach (Not easy to find a bigger or more sacred cow anywhere), they work with the obvious Baroque influence in a delightful way just to make a Concert to.."the hamburger", something that only few and brave genius as Thijs Van Leer would ever dare to do.
Jan Akkerman & Kaz Lux ‎- Eli (1976) Atlantic/SD 18210 - US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Jan Akkerman & Kaz Lux ‎- Eli
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz
Label: Atlantic/SD 18210 | Release: 1976 | Genre: Rock-Fusion

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Out of limited number of albums that I have on Jan Akkerman's solo works, this is the album that I like most for a very simple and basic reason: the music is nice even though not that progressive or not that jazz.
Stephen Stills - Stephen Stills (1970) Atlantic/SD 7202 - 1st US Monarch Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - ONLY RE-POST

Stephen Stills - Stephen Stills
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Atlantic/SD 7202 | Release: 1970 | Genre: Country-Rock

Talk about understatement – there's Stephen Stills on the cover, acoustic guitar in hand, promising a personal singer/songwriter-type statement. And there is some of that – even a lot of that personal music-making – on Stephen Stills, but it's all couched in astonishingly bold musical terms. Stephen Stills is top-heavy with 1970 sensibilities, to be sure, from the dedication to the memory of Jimi Hendrix to the now piggish-seeming message of "Love the One You're With."
Chris Squire ‎- Fish Out Of Water (1975) Atlantic/SD 18159 - Original US Pressing - RE-POST In 24bit/96kHz

Chris Squire ‎- Fish Out Of Water

Mastered By Arun Chakraverty
Label: Atlantic/SD 18159 | Release: 1975 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
Chris Squire's single solo effort is an essential masterpiece. It certainly is not a lost Yes album just merely Squire's exceptional creation which demonstrates his importance in progressive rock and equally his influence in this genre.

A live album masterpiece. No other Yes live album comes close to this. As far as quality goes and the criticism it receives, I just don't get it.
