Not to be confused with Panta Rei, this funky prog monster comes out of the former East Germany – a wicked little set that bursts out with energy right from the start! There's a crashing mix of organ and guitars that really set the album on fire – and vocals by both female singer Veronika Fischer and some of the male members of the group – a nice blend that really helps the set offset some of the testosterone you'd find on other albums of the type. One cut – "Der Losverkaufer" – is downright funky – with excellent drums and soulful horns – and other titles include "Zwischen Gestern Und Morgen", "Finis", "Kinder Diser Welt", and "Alels Fliesst". LP, Vinyl record album
Rare psych from the UK scene of the 60s – a wonderful box set that brings together 6 rare singles on the Decca label – along with a brief set of notes! These tracks are all nice and obscure – hardly hits, and hardly crossover psych at all – even though some of the numbers have some slight mod touches as well. Titles include "The Wizard" and "Beyond The Risin Sun" by Marc Bolan, "Girl Don't Make Me Wait" and "Gone Is The Sad Man" by Timebox, "Over The Hills & Far Away" and "Collection Of Recollections" by Barry Mason, "Epitaph To You" and "Dream With Me" by Andy Forray, "Love You Forever" and "Sycamore Sid" by Focal Point, and "Hey Gyp" and "Deep Inside Your Mind" by Keith Shields. 7-inch, Vinyl record
A bit of hard rock, a bit of freakbeat, and a plenty darn great album from Bulldog Breed – one that's got a lot more edge than you might expect from the slightly corny cover! The album's an obscure Decca release from the tail end of the 60s – and like some of the other more revolutionary Decca sides of the time, it's got a really free approach to the structure of the music – unexpected twists and turns that keep things interesting, as the album unravels through a tapestry of shorter tunes that mix sweet moments with much harder ones! Some tracks are heavy in fuzz, both on guitars and vocals – while others are far gentler, but with a really dark undercurrent. Titles include "Paper Man", "Broomstick Ride", "When The Sun Stands Still", "Friday Hill", "Reborn", "Dougal", "Austin Osmanspare", and "Top O The Pops Cock". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Halo In My Hair" and "Porticullis Gate". CD

The unreleased third album from T2 – tracks recorded at the start of the 70s, but never issued at the time – and every bit as great as previous rare work from the British trio! There's a really open feel to these tracks – a style that's got heavy bass that you'd find in the growing hard rock scene of the period, but a languid quality to the vocals and some of the guitars – almost a hanging trace of psych that's a nice contrast to the boldness on the bottom – and which gives the record a feel that's a lot more personal than you might expect. These guys are totally great – no posturing, no overdone noodling, and really just all the right energy in all the right places – a record that really should have gone places, had it been released. Titles include "And Time", "Seventy Two", "The Clown", "The Gambler", "Into The Red", "Questions & Answers", "Looking Back", and "Closing Your Eyes". CD
