Open up your mind and let everything come through. Psych and Prog get great sharity treatment. (ChrisGoes is also known for his regular appearance on torrent sites with his huge, wonderful collections).

Also worth noting, though not enough content to make the FPP: Kosstac Mina, Chocoreve.

And as per always— some of the links presented, particularly on Chocoreve, are available through legitimate reissue companies. If you like what you've sampled, check out Bomp, Get Hip, Forced Exposure and Dusty Grooves for ways to reward the folks who have dug it up and put it out there. As far as I know, the three blogs in the FPP only feature things that have not been reissued.

I was wondering where some of the copyright lies here, particularly with some of the CD comps of the more obscure 60s stuff from other parts of the world (e.g. some of chocoreve's posts). Some of the labels themselves pretty much admit that they picked up a bunch of old tapes/vinyl of forgotten artists in flea markets, and made CDs out of them.

That being said, this is a great education in music I never knew existed; thank goodness for these obsessive collectors ...

Ahh, times like this I gotta trumpet my own mp3 blog, my one contribution to the spread of good music.

Brilliant, thanks (though I do wish these sites wouldn't use RapidShare - for some reason I always have to wait 62 minutes before I'm allowed to download anything...)

Thank you! I was actually going to post an AskMe about this type of music.

What an amazing car. Almost makes the album worth having even if the music isn't at all good.

lots of good stuff there ... or at least stuff that looks interesting

i highly recommend amon duul ii's yeti listed on the 8daysinapril site ... hard rocking for the most part and really really weird ... dance of the lemmings, their next album has to be heard to be believed

Wonderful link klangklangston, thanks. I was intending to listen to some more early UK blues/rock after seeing a documentary on the making of 'Disraeli Gears' on the BBC the other night; the first link in your FPP obliged.

Very cool! Thanks for sharing. I think my bandwidth has been claimed by this site for the next week or so.
