Caedmon’s self-titled debut record is perhaps one of the strangest and yet most alluring entries in the acid folk genre. So much was riding against this band, it’s truly a wonder that an album was released at all. Firstly, the band sang Christian-inspired lyrics before “Christian music” was a popular genre. Secondly, their whimsical esotericContinue reading “Caedmon – S/T”

On this day 48 years ago, Bill Graham shut down The Fillmore East, and with it, an entire era of popular music. After a final public concert, Graham closed the venue with a total party with an invite-only audience. The Allman Brothers, J. Geils Band and Albert King were advertised, but Edgar Winter’s White Trash,Continue reading “The Closing of The Fillmore East”
Continuing the list that I started in March, here’s another selection of other fine promotional videos that predate the MTV era. If you missed the first part, check that out here.

Featuring the likes of Canned Heat, Dry Nod, Moby Grape, Hot Tuna, etc. For best results, crank this while traveling. The Band – Jam (Live at WatkinsContinue reading “Summer Jam Mix”
Being a vintage psychedelic rock fan living in New Jersey, I was naturally curious to see what psych groups existed in the state during the 60s/70s. This lead me to the rare, psych-blooze-country sounds of The Flying Dogs of Jupiter (from Westfield, NJ). I’m now very excited to see what else I can find onContinue reading “The Flying Dogs of Jupiter (New Jersey Psychedelic Blues Rock)”
To say that Can was and still is an influential band would be a major understatement. Countless artists and musicians from very diverse backgrounds and styles can easily pinpoint some inspiration from the German kosmische band. So losing both Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit, each a founding member of the group, in one year hasContinue reading “RIP Holger Czukay”
While playing a few Wyatt albums today, I rediscovered how much I love Matching Mole. More people need to listen to, obsess over and freak out about this record. This song especially.
