Had this one on backup DVDrom from my original mercury LP and FINALLY got it
converted to MP3 this morning from 44/16.

Regarded as one of the first Heavy Metal LP's. (supposed first mention of the word "heavy metal" in the review for
this album in CREEM magazine in 1970-71)
Listen and you will hear where Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Iron Maiden,
Van Halen, Metallica, ect ect got some of the basis for their own ideas.

Very raw recording and bangs out mang.

Winston George-any direction-canada folk psych

Up first for y'all is this superb LP that may take some time to grow on some.
As to me, he was on the same level as Bobby Dylan..

Winston george, bob connor, ron kilgour, bill pigram, kim crowder.

A personal favorite, in the vein of introspective, political, moody, sparse folk psychedelia. So rare, because it was only released in Ontario, distributed by hand by Winston where he played. On the small indie label Ergo, which is also a book publishing venture.
For those in the know, he was a keystone of culture in Southern ontario, and his best friend was
Roy MacDonald of London Ontario, the street busker/philosopher/free spirit. Virtually unknown for this material in his own city of London Ontario, he played the coffee house circuit and bars in this time period, this is a stone classic, and very important document of canadian music.

Unfortunately Winston passed away recently and is missed dearly by friends and family.

A month before he passed, he invited me over to his house for a home made Beer, but we both did not connect
and as fate would have it, I missed my chance to have more intimate conversations with him. I am grateful of
the very easy exchanges via email I had with 'win' schell.

Any direction, a secretary song, alone with a shadow, Resignation, channel 19, Danger U.,Long time leavin', Smoky mountain grey, Great Waterfall, Neither a lender, Reason or rhyme, Nobody died, So long gone, Mornin' lookin' free

Some concise information on Winston :

Polish psych part 1 : Katarzyna Sobczyk

I ripped this LP a while ago and it's a real odd duck. I love it. Very thick pressing for a Pronit (polish) LP.

The album title is 'zakochani sa sami na swiecie' which translates to English as ; " Lovers are Lonely"
14 diverse tracks about what it sounds like lost Love and heartbreak. Amazing downer vibe with awesome lysergic
edge via garage organs, big drums and sting ray fuzz attacks on about half the tracks.
Check it out, some tracks remind me of Italian soundtrack music, others pearls before swine type sound when they were on ESP, and then the showcase Vocalist 'Katarzyna Sobczyk' sounds very similar to the energy of the girl group in "beyond the valley of the dolls" soundtrack. Henryk Fabian is also a featured artist on the record. Unknown band. Time to do some research!


Surfing on the Plastic Cloud

a very dedicated and open person who shared many new avenues
with many people including myself

He was an obssessed record collector in Vancouver who also sold the vinyl
down at the Huge Barn Flea Market complex down near the West Mono
rail Station in vancouver and also all over the world to hungry collectors via Ebay.
I spent many hours with him listening to all sorts of genres of music, rapping about
science fiction, photography, LSD trips, healthy eating, smoking mad herb, laughing and helping out with his
buisness (selling, grading, cleaning, posting, listening to rare psychedelia).
He passed away and I dedicate my meanderings,
and all the music I will be sharing on here with you. His very unselfish
ways really is the motivation of this. And also to those who are also
sharing great music and words on here. Thanks so much.

That leads to the name of my (OLD) blog : PLASTIC CLOUD
This was Ty's name for his record shop online and at the market, and also the name of a fantastic LP

( go here for a download of the album on MP3 : )
*if this link is dead, I will post it on my server regardless

put out in the late 60's on Allied records by a bunch of freaks here in Ontario Canada.
The plastic cloud will continue infinite

Exploring self enhancement will create a better environment always

CTV after four 1967 canada Yorkville psychedelia

After finding a trashed warped copy of this LP, I finally found a pretty nice copy of CTV's after four
compilation from 1967 featuring music artists from Canada that were featured on this television program.
WOULD LOVE to know how much of this footage exisits if any on video. Very ambitious collection
with mostly artists that were on the progressive Yorkville label from Toronto Ontario canada.
Some other artists do appear that was on the label that pressed all of Yorkville's stuff.. the infamous
ARC label. This would be the 2nd in a series of 2 that Yorkville records put out, the other LP being
"yorkville evolution" with the very desireable psychedelic cover. But this comp has the better selection
of music IMHO. interesting to note, a misprint on the sleeve and label of record, side two, track two is
credited to "Bob Francis -I'm a bad bad boy" Well, it is really the very first Pink Floyd cover ever
of "see emily play by, well, I'm not sure, as it is not's either "okee pokey band" or "3 to 1"

wow. what a sweet treat!
Now dig it!

T SWIFT AND THE ELECTRIC BAG (are you experienced?)

supa exploitation!!! An early and gritty Hendrix cover kicks this LP off in a very heavy basement
vibe, played by a totally anonomous group. The singer does
show up on other LP's on this Label. He has a sort of gruff southern USA voice
, nothing I can compare it to really.
Just converted to MP3 from original Canadian pressing.
Out of all my exploitation LP's, this is one of my fav's as it's just so raw and almost falls to shambles
at times! There is even an extended experimental track on here that has some early electronic noodling
that goes into some HEAVY bass territory. tres freaky

CANTELON, Willard. LSD: Battle for the Mind.
Glendale, CA: Supreme Recordings, ca. 1966. LP record. Evangelist Willard Cantelon, while conceding that God can be reached through LSD, suggests religion as a more reliable way, not fraught with the perils of a possible "freak-out." An interesting approach, but the real virtue of this album is the outrageously exploitative cover which feaures a photograph of a man with bulging eyes in whose outstretched hand is an LSD sugar cube. Superimposed in the foreground is a distorted, screaming skull, and at the top in huge, pseudo-3-D letters "LSD," with everything bathed in a murky greenish-red light. Must be seen to be fully appreciated.
Just loaded
this one up from backup from original pressing LP.
