SOFT MACHINE, MACHINE OF NUMBERS

"Third" sounds like chaos, but is not. It's carefully arranged. And besides the instruments, the Robert Wyatt lyrics are just too delicious.


Soft Machine fue un grupo inglés de rock progresivo, rock psicodélico y jazz fusión formado en Canterbury en 1966. Su nombre proviene de la novela de William Burroughs The Soft Machine. Son una de las principales bandas de la Escena de Canterbury, caracterizada por fusionar la psicodelia con el jazz y el rock progresivo. Soft Machine fue fundada en 1966 por el vocalista y batería Robert Wyatt, el guitarrista, bajista y vocalista Kevin Ayers, el guitarrista Daevid Allen y el teclista Mike Ratledge.

DEREK & THE DOMINOS, NO WORDS

THE ESSENCE OF ROCK, THE QUINTESSENCE OF RHYTHM & BLUES, A COUPLE OF ALBUMS THAT SHOULD BE PRESERVED IN A MUSEUM. HAVE A LISTEN AND... LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL AGAIN!

Whenever I need my fix of classic 1970s' rock, I always turn to this album. After touring as a sideman with Delaney and Bonnie, Eric Clapton formed Derek and the Dominos out of Delaney and Bonnie's rhythm section (Bobby Whitlock, keyboards and vocals; Carl Radle, bass; and Jim Gordon, drums) and The Allman Brothers' guitarist, Duane Allman, and then released the penultimate rock love song, "Layla," which takes centerstage on this iconic rock album. Inspired by his then-unrequited love for model Pattie Boyd, the wife of his friend George Harrison, Clapton took the name "Layla" from Nezami Ganjavi's poem, "Layla and Majnun," which tells the story of a young man who goes crazy after falling in love with a beautiful, unavailable woman. Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is undeniably one of the ten greatest rock and roll albums of all time, and with the dual guitars of Allman and Clapton, it features Clapton at his best. The album is a collection of blues standards ("Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out," "It's Too Late," "Have You Ever Loved A Woman," and "Key To The Highway"), jams ("Tell the Truth"), and as the title suggests, "Other Assorted Love Songs" ("Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad," "Bell Bottom Blues," "Layla"). Ironically the album was in production at the time of Jimi Hendrix's drug-overdose. (A reverent cover of "Little Wing" was included on the album in tribute to Hendrix.) In fact, the album is eerily surrounded by death and drug addiction. (Allman was killed in a motorcycle accident soonafter the album release; Gordon later murdered his mother in a psychotic rage; and Clapton was addicted to heroin.) Unrequited love, incendiary guitar, drugs, and unexpected death: this album is definitive 70s' rock and roll. • Amazon review

ABSOLUTE ELSEWHERE, THE LOST ALBUM



A RARE INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM FROM THE SEVENTIES, A ONE SHOT PROJECT BY ABSOLUTE ELSEWHERE, INCLUDING BILL BRUFORD ON DRUMS. A MUST FOR ALL LOVERS OF EARLY ELECTRONIC KEYBOARDS (MOOG, MELLOTRON...) AND PROG ROCK COLLECTORS. MAGNIFICENT.

"In Search of Ancient Gods" ("Buscando a los antiguos dioses") es uno de esos discos absolutamente peculiares dentro del género progresivo, una auténtica rareza. Fue grabado por Absolute Elsewhere, o lo que es lo mismo: Paul Fishman (teclados), Bill Bruford (batería); Philip Saatchi (guitarras) y Jon Astrop (bajo), y editado por Warner en 1976. No hubo ninguna obra posterior, ni continuidad de colaboración entre el cuarteto de músicos. Fue lo que se denomina un "One Shot", un "ahí queda eso y punto". El disco pasó prácticamente inadvertido pese a que los aficionados al rock progresivo eran, en esos momentos, legión. El LP, totalmente instrumental, es, como reza el título, una experiencia en música y sonido que celebra o ilustra las teorías de Erich Von Däniken acerca del origen extraterrestre de la civilización y de las visitas de "dioses espaciales" en un pasado remoto. Durante décadas ha sido absolutamente imposible encontrar copias de este trabajo, que ha visto cómo el tiempo lo convertía en álbum de culto. En los últimos años se han efectuado muy pocas ediciones en CD (hasta la fecha circulaba algún archivo mp3 en Internet procedente de un vinilo digitalizado) y únicamente en Japón. Localizar "In Search of Ancient Gods" en archivo Flac, procedente de una de esas ediciones japonesas, es el motivo que me anima a no demorar su publicación en ThatWasMusic. Disco de colección para amantes de la música de sintetizadores, mellotrones y electrónica en general; realmente magnífico, onírico, fantasioso, relajante. No te lo pierdas por nada del mundo. Es como si la música de King Crimson y Alan Parsons se hubieran dado la mano de forma mágica e irrepetible.

PROGRESSIVE CLASSICS, NEKTAR


NEKTAR, GRUPO ALEMÁN DE ORIGEN INGLÉS, FIRMÓ ALGUNOS DE LOS MEJORES ÁLBUMES DE ROCK PROGRESIVO Y SPACE ROCK DE LOS SETENTA; DISCOS QUE PASARON DESAPERCIBIDOS PARA MUCHOS FANS DEL GÉNERO. CON UN ESTILO PROPIO QUE NO LE DEBE NADA A NADIE, ORIGINALES, EXCELENTES COMPOSITORES, Y FORMIDABLES INSTRUMENTISTAS, SON UN DEBER Y UN LUJO EN CUALQUIER COLECCIÓN.

NEKTAR is probably the most German-like of the Seventies British bands, a fame that owes a lot to the town in which this band was founded (Hamburg) and to their stylistic approach (Assimilated to Krautrock). NEKTAR was formed in 1969 by Allan FREEMAN (keyboards & vocals), Roye ALBRIGHTON (guitars & vocals), Derek MOORE (bass, Mellotron & vocals) and Ron HOWDEN (drums). Their earliest albums were hard rock that drew heavily from the space-rock and PINK FLOYD styles of the same period. The 70's gave them the occasion to issue some masterpieces, like for example "Remember the Future" (1973) and "Recycled" (1975). Each is a conceptual album that is a nice blend of melodic guitar and keyboards with a vocal story. "Journey To The Centre Of The Eye" is a mindblowing epic with lots of echoplex guitar and dual Mellotrons which is quite in tune with the Krautrock stuff going on around them, yet is definitely British. "Tab in the Ocean" and "Magic is a Child" had shorter songs and were less less satisfying. Fortunately there is a compilation album just called NEKTAR (1976) which has all the best bits of the albums and is highly recommended. • Text by Progarchives
