Hi,friends  .
DISH// is a Japanese dance pop group (4 boys )

Watch the following PV by DISH//

They released their 1st album "Main Dish " including 14 track, on January 14th this year ,most of the tracks are excellent dance pop tunes ,but ... among them ,
a very unique track is included .....I 'm so interested who loves Queen and why he or she wanted them to  play Queen-style..... .lol

Gandalf & Galadriel "The Shining " (Austria ,1986 ,sympho, healing )



One day ,I read a review about this album ,and found  it  was a mud one .
To be completely honest , "The Shining" is the most exciting album for me among Gandalf's a lot of albums.( I bought CDs and listened almost all his albums so far )
So when it was released as CD in 1989 ,I sold my vinyl at a used record shop and purchased the CD very soon.
But unfortunately ,the CD didn't catch my heart again .
Why ?
The answer is in the 2 albums .
So I hope you will savor  both of them ....vinyl version and CD version ....

I believe that vinyl version is much better......
And the album always makes my heart  happier ......

David Sancious & Tone "Dance of the Age of Enlightenment" (USA,symphonic jazz rock,1977)

David Sancious & Tone"Dance of the Age of Enlightenment" (USA,symphonic jazz rock,1977)


I have got some CD-Rs or mp3s of this album to the date .

But they were not my favorite ones about sound quality.
However,at last ,I've got excellent lossless file .
So glad to enjoy this unreleased real treasure with all of you together !





 In those days around 1977 ,David Sancious & Tone were an anomaly to Columbia-Epic and also Arista. They didn’t know how to market the band. The band  told the companies to just put them with all the fusion artists, but those marketing boys were kind of crazy. .....Sometimes they can’t see the forest before the trees as they say.....It was the big problem with ‘'Dance of the Age of Enlightenment”. Both Columbia-Epic and Arista couldn’t conceive of the concept of a symphonic fusion band.  People didn’t realize that "Dance of the Age of Enlightenment" was scored for 20 woodwind, 20 string and 20 brass parts. That’s 60 singular individual orchestra parts that were all done on “ONE” yes one single minimoog synthesizer by David .The engineer, Bruce Botnik almost had a nervous breakdown (lol) as they had to sync three (3) 24 track MCI Tapedecks together and calibrate them every fifteen minutes to keep all the tracks sync’d up. ......Quite an undertaking.The record companies didn’t think that anyone would buy it so they tabled the project one month before the release date.It was very disappointing to the band. But it led to them creating the " True Stories  "  which is by far one of better produced records of all time. Eddie Offord was truly a genius.

This record were disposed soon although they were manufactured 1000 copies  first.No album cover, although one was created .Never went into production.............

Guruh Gipsy (1977,prog,Indonesia )


Second upload followed by nahavanda  in 2006  here




The album was recorded  twice .......First recording was July 1975 - February 1976, and the second rekoding was May 1976 - June 1976  (total 200 times dubbing).  The progressive rock GEM in Indonesia. combining elements of Western and Bali music.

  • This albums was selected as best Indonesian albums 150 in 2007 (as No 2 rate )

This is once vinyl reissued  by Shadoks in 2006,but  it is not a legit one......from a cassette rip....
Guruh Gipsy is always (LOL) scheduled to be reissued  in Indonesia,but always (LOL) failed until today because of the problems of copyright ......
Hope it will be reissued as CD as soon as possible  in the near future  because it is a real GEM  for us  progheads ....

B-4 is a bonus track,and it is no relation with Guruh Gipsy ?
Some one knows about the bonus track ?

BTW,the other day(in August ?) ,Guruh Gipsy's tribute album was released in Indonesia (2 CD set).

God Bless "Cermin" (1980,progressive HR ,Indonesia )

God Bless "Cermin" (1980,progressive HR ,Indonesia )



God Bless is an Indonesian legendary HR band that has released 6 albums to this date.
Unfortunately ,only this 2nd album "Cermin" never released as CD in spite of the best album of their 6 albums.
That's why the master tape can not be used anymore because of the broken condition.

Yockie Suryoprayogo (key) played in almost of their albums ,but about "Cermin" Abadi Soesman (ex- Guruh Gipsy) played on all the tracks ,and he blew his a lot of jazzy and progressive feelings  into the album,so we prog lovers can accept it  as one of the Indonesian prog masterpieces ...
Abadi has rejoined God Bless as a regular member since 2002 after withdrawing from the band in 1980 (?).

Amaury Pérez (Cuba, 1979 ,prog singer )

 Amaury Pérez (Cuba, 1979 ,prog singer )

This album's value is ★★★★★ for me.
I purchase not only Cuban original vinyl but also Mexican vinyl (purple front cover ),but I think that Cuban one has better sound ,so I ripped it.
After releaseing this album ,he began to lose his interest about prog music ,and went on releasing pop and AOR music albums ,and as the result,he got a great success in Cuba.
He has played with famous Cuban prog band "Sintesis " around late 70s to early 80s.

RYM





Amaury re-recorded all tracks of the album with his friends and released 2CDs + 1DVD set ,1CD is the original version,and the other is the new recorded version with other Cuban artists (here ) ,the video above is the footage at that time. .I purchased the CD just now ,and will upload here when it arrives.

Part Three of the Blossom Dearie Chronicles: Simply Vol. VII and a complete Chez Wahlberg












It was surprisingly easy to find the complete original rip of Chez Wahlberg on a Friday night I had nothing better to do... good for you guys to have found out it was incomplete, which I never thought would happen and in fact had forgotten about.  On the same backup CD I found the album she did after the Vol. VI one (obviously) which was distinctly inferior, though there are a couple of great songs, esp. the "Over the Weekend" number and the incredible sound of the electric piano on "Free Again".  There must be only a handful of people in the world who even knew of the existence of this album, at least until now.  


The gorgeous track "After Me" that closes the album out should have been a hit.  
Check out the hilarious lyrics for "Loving in the present tense:"

"No more turnin' off the new wave
Heavy metal makes good sense
We make out to Michael Jackson
Loving in the present tense"

ouch!
