Not really psych

But two very nice 45s anyways... no pictures at the moment (don't have a camera onhand) but that should be fixed by Friday.

This is Roger Hallmark and the Thrasher Brothers with their 1979 Vulcan single "A Message To Kholmeini/Maharishi".
Hear a rip-off fortune teller

And this is Joan Jett and the Blackhearts with their 1982 Boardwalk single (which all people who went to high school in the 1980s should know) "I Love Rock and Roll/You Don't Know What You've Got".
Relive the 1980s

I plan to post Yes' "Yesterdays" LP later on today.

New record player

came in yesterday. It's one of those you can plug in directly into your computer.

I plan to start transferring my vinyl collection (including the majority of the original Led Zeppelin records) onto my computer sometime today, so expect new posts soon.

Have a great day!

One more thing before I call it a night...

I wanted to let you all hear my favorite song. Ever.
It's a Buffalo Springfield classic. And I don't care what you think.
No, it's not "For What It's Worth".

It's "Out Of My Mind".

See you all tomorrow!


Chrysalis - Definition

This is one of my favorite psychedelic albums. Hands down. Chrysalis' sole album "Definition" is a sure-fire hit! It should've been big! It could've been big! But it wasn't.

All of the songs on the album were written by guitarist James 'Spider' Barbour.

  1. What Will Become Of The Morning
  2. Lacewing
  3. Cynthia Gerome
  4. April Grove
  5. Father's Getting Old
  6. 30 Poplar
  7. Baby Let Me Show You Where I've Been
  8. Fitzpatrick Swanson
  9. Lake Hope
  10. Piece Of Sun
  11. Summer In Your Savage Eyes
  12. Dr. Root's Garden
  13. The Dues Are Hard*
  14. Gimme Your Love*
  15. Sink In Deeper*
  16. Window Shopping*
  17. Well I Can Ride*
  18. Cold And Windy City*
  19. Cynthia Gerome (demo)*
  20. Dr. Root's Garden (demo)*
Those tracks marked with an asterisk are bonus tracks. They are previously unreleased demos for a scrapped second album (except 19 and 20, which are early takes of tracks featured on the album)

Fourth time's the charm

This is my fourth attempt at making a music blog.

The first two, I just completely forgot about. The third one actually stuck in my memory, but then school work took it's toll (I'm a sophomore in high-school right now... shocking, yes).

So with that being said, let's see this blog last longer than three or four posts!!!
