Delaney & Bonnie & friends - Motel shot 1971
Almost 6 years ago I started recording and digitalizing my LP's. Why I did this one only three years ago I can't remember. Delaney & Bonnie belong to my fav's. Made some superb albums. I'm now wondering how much of their stuff is available on CD.
This Motel shot contains one of their huge hits 'Never ending song of love'.
I suppose Motel shot is only the working title : the way they were making fun/jamming in motel rooms.
To me it's almost impossible this is just a kind of 'bootleg', it must be a normal studio recording listening to this good sound.
I'm in that motel room enjoying myself at the moment. I put the tracklist and a link in the comments if you want to join.

Nilsson, Harry - Son of Dracula _Soundtrack 1974_04
When I posted Harry Nilsson The point 'Anonymus' asked for some more HN.
It would be easy just to repost a link of one of the many CD albums that go around.
But I didn't came across this one 'till now.
Here's my own vinyl rip of this album. It's 40MB - 160kbits from vinyl.
Gram Parsons just joined The Byrds
In 1968 GP (nót Gene Pitney ....) joined the Byrds.
Since I heard about the connection between Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris I was interested in both.
Emmy is one of my fave female singers. I also followed Gram/Byrds and all the other country guys at the time.
HansZun had lately a lot of Byrds. Bút, bút he didn't had this one. Hé had very nice songs in quite good quality but I have I think a very rare (at least I couldn't find it elsewhere) Pop concert in Rome 1968 may.
It's only 15 minutes, five songs in not so good quality (although the bitrate is 160, my source isn't so good). But I hope this is a collector's item.
You dont miss your water - Hickory wind - Mister spaceman - Feel a whole lot better - Chimes of freedom.
The link is in the comments.

I shared with you The Blue Diamonds (Ruud & Riem de Wolff of which Ruud died tragically from cancer some years ago ; my assistance knew him so well) as an example of the Dutch Indo music.
On his BLog Ceasartjalbo pointed to this posting.
I'm glad now I can point to him. Ceasar has posted a wonderful 3 CD box of the Tielman Brothers.
Another example of the Dutch Indo rock !
On this picture (from Ceasar !) you see Riem de Wolff (Blue Diamonds), Andy Tielman & George Baker (real name George Bouwens, worldfamous because Una Paloma Blanca etc).
So go to http://caesartjalbo.blogspot.com/ and enjoy some Indo rock !

Hess, Troy - Don't go topless mother
It's just something like my first post. Dirty, but somekind a funny.
It sounds like end 50's but it's maybe end 60's or even later.
Does someone has an answer ?
My next post will be end this week (I have to work ...).
Will be either Harry Nilsson or GP (not Gene Pitney but Gram Parsons ....)
The old Rapidshare.de link has expired. I decided to re-upload this again.
But note, this time I added DreamTime Podcast episode 29_Info behind Troy Hess.
Dreamtime is so well know by Bob Dylan's radio shows on XM radio, so this is really worth to listen to.

Champs - The early years (a & b sides)
There was a request for a certain 'Jos' (he was 'chatting' there ; have to find out how I can join next time) : 61-Champs - Cantina.
As a kind of Eastern gift here's for him (and you !) the complete Champs Early singles collection. Bought this CD almost 9 years ago and it never bores me when playing.

My first LP
Later on I discovered why it was so cheap. Bach's Concert didn't have violins. So instead of very lively it sounded dark (hope you understand my English). Sometimes when I'm in a bad mood I still play that record.
Round 57-58 I was going to the outdoor swimming pool and heard there for the first time US r'n'roll/rockabilly/ballads etc. Quite different from what we heard from our parents. Immediately the Everly's got me. Such a nice harmony. Such a nice text's (mostly by Beaudlieux/Bryant I learned later on).
So the second album was a one only released here in Holland somewhere end 50's. A 10 inch The Everly Brothers - It's Everly Time.
Too costly to play nowadays so I enjoy the Cadence period on a cd.

Byrds - Preflyte sessions
I'm a beginner but a month ago when I was a complete 'newbie' there was a man called HansZun who was posting a lot of Byrds.
He was so very kind to let me participate with the above Byrds title.
I never thought there would be so many people who would listen to this.

Peter, Paul & Mary in concert 1962
Nice harmony vocals, very pleasant to listen to.
Someone is looking for them and I'll try to be of help. Of the 15 LP's I have I will post here their live appeance from 1962.
So this is (also) a vinyl rip from a 2LP and it gives you almost 1 1/2 hours of great music/entertainment pleasure.
Hope she likes it. And you of course.
The tracklist & link is in the comments.
See the comments.
Click the pictures for a better view of this great Rhino DVD 'Carry it on' about Peter, Paul and Mary.
Alan is so right when he said in the comments this 2LP is from 1964 instead of 1962 !!

Emmylou Harris, that fragile woman.
Emmylou Harris is one of my favorite singers. Interesting to know how she 'dealt' with the 'junkies around' Gram Parsons when she just started. She became a kind of mother for them.
Her duet 'Love hurts' with Gram Love is one of the best.
Played today one of her first LP's. Remember driving to the airport in 1976 in the middle of the night for our honeymoon to the Canarian Isle's and we heard on the radio her beautiful 'If I could only win your love'. So appropriate. Here's that LP.
Heard this week she's coming to Holland (with Mark Knoffler).

Don & Phil Everly
As a member of The International Everly Brothers fanclub one of my first postings has to be one of them.
Everyone knows the famous Cadence classic songs. It's Everly Time is an 10-inch LP which was only available in Holland. I treasure it.
At Warner Brothers they still made some fine collector's (Cathy's clown eg).
Having split they also made a few solo LP's like Don's Brother Jukebox 1975.
I prefer Phil's smoothy voice. Here's a compilation cd : Everly, Phil - A portrait of Phil Everly 1993.
See comment for more info.

Nilsson, Harry - The point! 1970
Nilsson, Harry - The point 1970
Pass (type it and don't forget the underscore) : JD_070121
Note that this is my vinyl recording from the original LP. The fantastic whole booklet/cartoon is included.
There's also a CD with bonus tracks but I prefer the vinyl recording.
Raises me a question. Does someone has the original cartoon (NOT the remake with Ringo Starr !) ??
I finally laid a hand on the TV-cartoon. Not an excellent tape after all those years but it is sooo great to watch ! Thanks Marvin & Harriet !!!!

This saturday I listened to a radio show with famous Dutch top DJ Theo Dumoulin.
It was as always a perfect combination of nice music, info and chatting.
In the future I will give more details.
The last song of his show is always an instrumental :
63-Marketts - Bella dalena.
Look in the comments for three nice LP's, so 1 1/2 hour fine instrumentals, by those great Marketts !

Williams, Dicky - The same motel
In nov 2005 I entered the new era : we also got broadband internet.
Within 2 days I got it. Searched for the wrong name : had to be Williams, Dicky - The same motel.
It gave me mixed emotions.
Was very glad my search ended successfully, but on the other hand this way almost every wish can be fulfilled (so quickly).
I like to have wishes. I like to be glad that maybe next week/month/year .. maybe ..
Anyway my opening bid on this Blog is Dicky in a motel and what does he hear from the room nextdoor ? On the wrong end of a cheatin' song : what was hé doing there ?
If you don't know the song, in the comment is the info (please note, this is only for your listening pleasure, NOT an advice/suggestion ...!) :
Can anyone provide me with technical date ?
Here are the scans.
So The same motel is the b-side.
Price is very reasonable, just a few dollars.
From the comment section : Dicky Williamsmusic & Dicky Williams Music blogspot
It seems I finally made it !
What will the future bring ?
Don't expect to see a posting every day. One or two a week will already be an effort for me because I'm still a very busy guy. But who knows with your help ...
