Sweet Smoke Just a Poke

I don't know much about Sweet Smoke. AMG gives no info. I have only a few lines written down from the back sleeve few years back.
In short. It was a US (kinda jazz percussion) band who lived in Germany early 70's and toured in Europe. The band consisted of 5 musicians but helped by family members (the hippie/commune years) so there could be easily 10 people on stage.

Sweet Smoke - Just a Poke 1970
01-Baby Night
02-Silly Sally


Each side of this LP is just one track (17 minutes).
I like the second side best because of the drum/percussion solo : great ! If you like songs like Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Lucky man this is a 'must have' !
But side one is also interesting. This track consist of three parts. The second part (starts at 8.30 minutes) reveals a hidden (not noted on the back sleeve of this LP) cover of the Doors - The soft parade (see my Doors posting february_23).
If you find this interesting check the comments.

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : jeansmusicblog.blogspot.com
The file is a small 35MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 160kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that.

Hi El Norgüey from Mexico.....
Good info links you gave to other visitors !
 
One of the first pre-records I bought...while still in the Navy. It was great to just mellow out to..the endless garage jam. Nothing quite like it..cept maybe the second side...hahaha.
Peace, Eric.
