The metal of the medal in a medley
Even though it (sort of) copied its layout AHM's successor did not top the charts, but instead it brought Floyd on the brink of greatness, just behind the bend. For some reasons, Meddle doesn't suffer of the same controversy than AHM did, which is rather strange, because it if has much higher and outstanding peaks, it is also much less even, because the lows on this album are simply awful. With that bizarre yet fascinating Hypgnosis artwork of mixing an ear and waterdrops on rippling the surface of calm waters, Meddle has not only a weird unnatural name, but the album was released in early 71 like its predecessor with the name and title on the cover, something that Crimson or Zep were also doing with success.

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
More or less?
With the commercial pop side now eluding Floyd's attempts, French cineaste Shroeder's proposition to create the soundtrack for his first film must've fallen from the skies, a bit as Zeus' gift. This project is instrumental in Floyd's middle career, definitely turning its back from the pop single market. Some progheads have problems considering this album a real Floyd album (some even pointing the group did as well), mostly due to the OSF letters printed on the intriguing psychedelic artwork. But there are a lot of real gems on More, some are even classic Floyd songs. If some people are put off by this, the shorter song format and the word Soundtrack are the culprits. Do indulge as this is a real Floyd album, because it is quite instrumental and experimental and very representative of Floyd's then-actual soundscapes.

Mastered At A&M Mastering Studios By Bernie Grundman
Label: Warner Bros. Records/BSK 3113 | Release: 1976 | This Issue: Unknown | Genre: Country-Rock

James Taylor had scored eight Top 40 hits by the fall of 1976 when Warner Brothers marked the end of his contract with this compilation. One of those hits, the Top Ten gold single “Mockingbird,” a duet with his wife Carly Simon, was on Elektra Records, part of the Warner family of labels and presumably available, but it was left off.

This record has many excellent piano and floating mellotron parts. Organ, clavinet and mini moog are also at the rendez-vous.

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
A sublime collection of wonderful timeless music to treasure.
Upon seeing the `New Age Collection’ tag on the front cover of Rick Wakeman’s `Country Airs’, I expected to find a disc full of faceless digital synths to backing sounds of nature and stormy rainforests. What a pleasure to find not a single cold machine, instead a stunning collection of solo piano pieces.
Donovan – Catch The Wind (1965) Hickory Records/LPS 123 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Donovan – Catch The Wind
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Hickory Records/LPS 123 | Release: 1965 | Genre: Country-Folk

Donovan’s folky 1965 recordings for Pye Records (they were released in the U.S. by Hickory Records) bear only a superficial resemblance to the more hip pop material he began issuing a year later when he switched to Epic Records.

Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home

Label: Columbia KCS 9128 | Release: 1965 | This Issue: 1972 | Genre: Country-Rock

“It’s very complicated to play with electricity,” Bob Dylan said in the summer of 1965. “You’re dealing with other people… Most people who don’t like rock & roll can’t relate to other people.” But on Side One of this pioneering album, Dylan amplifies his cryptic, confrontational songwriting with guitar lightning and galloping drums.

Today I move to the 'Far West', heh, heh. Nothing less than the teacher-poet and the most influential country-rock singer of the last century: Bob Dylan.
