The Panoctogon

Some random selections.


Samsong-Les Devinettes good:



Some expensive rock, but you ingrates get it for free,
yay! Well, two songs anyway:


Doug Hammond-Wake Up Brothers

Here's another record that took me forever to find...
I don't know too much about this guy other than that
he's now a professor in Austria...Austria...Austria...


Minne Riperton-Les Fluer

I heard this record is really hard to find because
it came out when she was between labels. Anyway,
it took me forever to find this:


Johnny Hammond-Gears

Here are a couple songs from one of the two records
he did with the Mizell Brothers. 1975:

Wade Marcus

Yet another version of spinning wheel plus
a bonus track. I think he gets most of his credits
as an arranger for various people. Played with
Donald Byrd, Stanley Turrentine, blah blah blah.
Remember this Jungle Brothers/Q-tip song?:


Hielo Ardiente

A nice spanish
cover of Cymande's "The Message,"
"Mensaje," 1974:

Mother Nature's Son

Sorry about the editing on these recordings. The songs mix
into each other on the record so you may notice little bits at the
beginning and endings. Shouldn't be enough to get anyone
upset though. If you have any download problems just
add .stix to the file. Should fix it. I think I've had this
record for about 10 years and have just now really listened to it.
There are so many RamseyLewis records that it's easy to let one
slide by every now and then, or at least put off listening to one you
already own. Most people probably know about these Beatles covers.
Here's a few of my favorites...
your welcome:

Death Machine

Does anyone listen to the radio show religously? Ice Cream Sunday?
If so, some of the songs on this mix'll be repeats from the show.
A fair mix anyhow, if you comment then i'll know. Maybe
I should be a little bit more informative on my posts?
See if yous can guess what song on this mix the
post is named after. It's another pretty
broad mix. Sorry it's been so
long since my last post.
I'll try to keep up
on it more

He's proud
He's arrogant
The combination is powerful"

Roosevelt Franklin

Roosevelt Franklin (middle) was the first major black character
on sesame street. He was dropped after they received
too many letters stating that he was a negative stereotype.
Here are a couple of songs from the record
"Hi, My Name Is Roosevelt Franklin."
(Sorry, my record's not the best quality)

Nice song and record that Bobby London exposed
me to and Phantom Taste bestowed me with.
Here's one song:


Nice Sample

This is the first in my series of sample sources.

Fifty Foot Hose

George Duke-Vocals

George Duke seems to have at least one of these
songs on all of his early records. Some might be a
little cheesy for some. Here's a few of my favorites:

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Bjorn J:Son Lindh

Sweed. This record's pretty bugged out, drum heavy
and all that stuff.
Here's a couple songs:


Clifford Coulter

A couple songs from my favorite record by this guy,
"do it now, worry bout it later," including "before the
morning comes" one of the
most depressing songs ever made:


Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Freddie Robinson

One side of this record is real bluesy and the other side
is funk and break heavy. The order got mixed up through the
transfer process and one of the blues songs,
"i found my soul last night," didn't record right.

Alexander Spence

From Wikipedia:

Oar is a 1969 album by Skip Spence. It is his only solo album. It was recorded after he had spent six months in Bellevue Hospital. The majority of the tracks were recorded using a three-track recorder. As described by Ross Bennett, "Combining the ramblings of a man on the brink of mental collapse with some real moments of flippancy and laughter, Oar is a genuinely strange record. Unsurprisingly, the journey from "Little Hands"’ Grape-esque guitar grooves to "Grey/Afro"’s terrifying nine minutes of mantric drone, isn’t an easy one. Even when Spence builds his songs around a familiar sound (primarily minimalist country-folk) unsettling oddities and ominous modulations creep in. least he left Oar – more than most of us sane, functional people will ever manage. Just take a look at the tousled-haired, half-smiling figure gazing out from the record sleeve and tell me you don’t want to peer inside." The album is viewed by Lindsay Planer as follows: "A common motif to this album is the presence of saints and demons. Even the straightforward narratives such as the love ballad "Broken Heart" or "Cripple Creek" — which feature vocal treatments reminiscent of folkie Fred Neil — are bathed in unusual chord sequences and lyrical double-entendre. The majority of the sounds on this long-player remain teetering near the precipice of sanity."


Tony Williams and The Lifetime

this record is pretty crazy. mostly free-jazz madness
with jack bruce, john mclaughlin, and larry young,
and then there's this song:
