the hello people - Fusion LP

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Their 2nd album and a great piece of work.  I especially like their 'mission statement' on the back cover:  "What we wanted was to grow and create and be something more than each of us could be so we became us and we took the things we knew and felt like jazz and folk and poetry and blues and even longhair and theatre and mime and sometimes ragtime and most of all rock and added in a few signs that a girl we know painted and spent a thousand hours in the woodshed and now we're The Hello People and soon we'll be even more The Hello People and this is our second album.  It's called Fusion......."


SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Even though this is a toned down live recording and not of the greatest quality, Grace's awesome powerful singing breaks through clearly.  Such a great talent and even cooler in person!

Graham Parker And The Rumour - Squeezing Out Sparks LP 79

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  A record I have seen infrequently over the years and when I discovered & posted his early stuff, had to get it.  He kept getting repost requests for a reason.


Good hard rock.

T-REX - The Slider LP 72 w TANX LP 73

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Nice to find these the other day.

SHAKIN' STEVENS - Shaky LP 81 w The Early Days LP 82 w There Are Two Kinds Of Music...Rock 'n' Roll LP 90

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Dang!  This guy sure put out a lot of vinyl kind of like James Last from Germany.  Still have to say I like that very early one from last post best although 'Tiger' and 'Jungle Rock' are nice inputs from the picture disk.

Rick Derringer - All American Boy LP 73

SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Well the live album from a few weeks ago certainly was worth the effort on my part so I had to hear the studio offering.


SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON:  Well since I posted the first LP in this series a few weeks ago, I had to swipe this out of the dollar bin.

EIEIO - That Love Thang LP 88

A band on the Frontier Records label and a few compilations previously posted here.

SAVOY BROWN - Getting To The Point LP 68 w Blue Matter LP 69 w Step Further LP 69 w Raw Sienna LP 70 w Looking In LP 70 w Street Corner Talking LP 71 w Hellbound Train LP 72 w Lion's Share LP 72 w Jack The Toad LP 73 w Boogie Brothers LP 74 w Wire Fire LP 75 w Skin 'N' Bone LP 76 w Savage Return LP 78 w Rock 'N' Roll Warriors LP 81 w Greatest Hits 2LP 81 w Just Live LP 70 81 w Live In Central Park LP 72 85 w Highway Blues LP 85

This U.K. Blues band were bigger in the U.S.A. and thus toured there very consistently.  By doing that, they helped start the regular club scene such as at the Minneapolis Labor Temple that an old cab driver told me is where the Velvet Underground played on the West Bank.  Here is a great historic link on this place with posters (link:  After it closed, First Avenue became the dominant club scene and thus most of my records posted are from bands that toured through town there.
