Jonesy were an important piece of the early stage in UK's Progressive rock attack. The band was formed in 1971 by brothers Trevor and John Jones, while the original line-up included also Terry Cutting and Berbie Hugley. However this line-up wouldn't live on. Trevor had arguments with his brother John related to the band's musical direction and now the line-up included new members David Paul (bass/vocals), Jim Payne (drums/percussion) and Jimmy Kaleth (keys/vocals). With this formation Jonesy recorded their first album ''No alternative'' in 1972. The eponymous opener sets you in the general mood of the album with its rockin' riffs, great breaks and intense percussion work, typical of the early-70's UK Prog bands…

Like other British progressive rock bands, Jonesy is about pushing songs beyond the 3 minute confine (a format established 100 years ago as a result of the limitations of early technology – at that time it wasn't possible to produce longer recordings). Underlying the history of Jonesy has been the turbulent relationship between two brothers: Trevor (Gypsy) and John Evan-Jones who started playing music together at a very early age. Initially they were taught music by their grandfather who was a Salvation Army bandmaster – Trevor played cornet, John played trombone. Trevor, four years the senior, first taught himself to play banjo and guitar and then taught John. more..

Born out of Mannheim outskirts, in Germany, Night Sun emulated with perfection British hard rock - influenced by the likes of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Uriah Heep - blended with a delightful dose of psychedelia and schizophrenia typical of many German bands of those times. Mournin', their only and debut album, ranks itself as an excellent example of proto-metal, having particularly gone far beyond in originality matters if compared to bands like Lucifer's Friend. Sadly, Night Sun history is quite documented and the band only lasted for about three years followed by many line-up changes. Upon disbanding, shortly after the album release, bassist Bruno Schaab went on to join Guru Guru with whom he recorded 'Guru Guru' album in 1973, whilst keyboardist and trumpetist Knut Rössler founded Chameleon, his own jazz-fusion band.

The band utilise two dynamic drummers and powerful lead vocals. The bass generates solid rhythms and there are passages including harmonica and a rocking Beatles type of sound…

Discovering the Blues is culled from a series of concerts Robben Ford gave in the early '70s at Huntington Beach's Golden Bear and Ash Grove in Hollywood. At the time, Ford was just beginning his career, and his style wasn't nearly as accomplished as it would later be. Instead, he simply burns, tearing through blues classics with a passion and vigor – there is a joy of discovery in his playing which makes the music nearly transcendent, even with its flaws. Discovering the Blues is rawer than most records in Ford's catalog, but any serious fan will find it a necessary addition to their collection.

Bullet is a German heavy metal band formed in 1978. Their style is also very similar to bands like AC/DC, Krokus or Accept so it is easy to confuse the German and Swedish bullets Bullet The German editions: "Execution" (1981) and "No Mercy" (1983). A third album was recorded with new frontman Joe Schmeink but it was never released. In 1986 the band split up.

It's very difficult to listen to this posthumous album, reissued by EMI on CD in 1997 as part of its 100th anniversary series, without shedding a tear or two. Cogan's sense of release on the opening number, "Let Her Go," and her exuberant phrasing in front of an explosive, percussion-driven orchestral accompaniment, displays a glorious, tragic poignancy. Her version of "Trains and Boats and Planes" isn't much less beguiling, her radiant singing bringing an unexpectedly passionate joy to a song that's often tinged with sadness and angst.

Blues, Soul, Electric Blues| Label: Epic/Sundazed Records

The talented musician in the likable Elvin Bishop is always fighting for the upper hand with Pigboy Crabshaw, his spaced-out hayseed persona. Co-producer Delaney Bramlett helps steer the sound toward Memphis and Muscle Shoals R&B and keeps the focus on the music, not the headliner. Not a bad idea, considering his enthusiasm barely overcomes his singing limitations. This is a solid and surprisingly varied outing that, until "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," gave him his signature tune in the powerhouse title track. The 2003 CD reissue on Sundazed adds a previously unissued bonus track, "Sit and Wonder."
