The Hollies – Another Night (1975) Polydor/2442-128 – 1st UK Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Hollies – Another Night
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Polydor/2442-128 | Released: 1975 | Genre: Classic-Rock

Another Night was a wholly unexpected album at the time of its release in February of 1975.
The Hollies’ 15th official album, it also marked the return of Allan Clarke to the lineup for the first time since Distant Light in 1971 — and it was, apart from one number, comprised entirely of group originals, a feat of songwriting acumen that the Hollies had not achieved since 1969’s Hollies Sing Hollies (which was sort of a “ringer” in that regard); and just as much to the point, all of the songs and recordings were pretty much first-rate, ranging widely from lyrical pop/rock to harder, edgier, album-oriented sides, with a couple of classic performances among them.

Label: Fonomusic/89.2100/2 | Released: 1975 | This Issue: 1984 | Genre: Progressive-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Triana were at the forefront of the nascent Rock Andaluz of the mid-1970s with their particular blend of flamenco and progressive rock, characterised by multi-layered analogue keyboards, elaborate flamenco guitar and intense, at times tortured, vocals. Flamenco is of course a musical genus from Andalusia; the neighbourhood in Seville that gave this Spanish trio its name is generally considered to be the birthplace of flamenco. Triana, ‘the gitano barrio’, was home to a large population of Romani people who usually lived in communal homes, called corrales, which were organised around a patio. Many corrales have now disappeared due to housing pressure thus the patio is an important symbol of gitano culture and of the struggle between tradition and modernity. While Triana’s ‘El Patio’ has similar cultural significance it differs in that it features the harmonious synthesis of tradition and modernity, represented respectively by flamenco and progressive rock.

5 stars (I had to change 4* into 5 as soon as I became collaborator. This IS one of my favourites and sure it deserves the highest rate!) I have seen that most fans don’t rate Novella very high and I have always felt sad about it. It is somehow very introvert album and it calls for true dedication from the listener. I can understand that it may feel ‘boring’ to casual listener who expects more dynamic approach. But this is the most artistic of their albums.
PFM – Storia Di Un Minuto (1972) Numero Uno/ZSLN 55055 – 1st IT Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz - NEW 2017 RIP!

The debut album “Storia di un minuto” has strong echoes from early King Crimson, especially the ‘feminine’ side.

A compiled of Premiata Forneria Marconi? But, it is not another ordinary compilation, it is an extract of the first alternative takes of its two first LPs!

Harry Chapin – Verities & Balderdash (1974) Elektra/7E-101 – Original US Terre Haute Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Harry Chapin – Verities & Balderdash
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Mastered At Elektra Sound Recorders By Terry Dunavan
Label: Elektra/7E-101 | Released: 1974 | Genre: Country-Pop

Verities & Balderdash is a very strange and wonderful album. “Cat’s in the Cradle” was the driving force behind the album’s sales, but there’s a lot more to appeal to listeners, along with enough personal, topical material to make it seem a bit didactic at the time, but Chapin was cultivating a politically committed audience. Verities & Balderdash walked several fine lines, between topical songwriting and an almost (but not quite) pretentious sense of its own importance, humor and seriousness, and balladry and punditry, all intermingled with catchy, highly commercial ballads such as “I Wanna Learn a Love Song” (which is about as pretty a song as he ever wrote).
Emtidi – Saat (1972) Wah Wah Records/LPS037 – SP 180g Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Emtidi – Saat
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Wah Wah Records/LPS037 | Released: 1972 | This Issue: 2007 | Genre: Progressive-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
A beautiful, dreamy album by German folk rockers Emtidi! This one belongs to Pilz catalogue (where have been signed all the best of German “acid” folk at the beginning of the 70’s).
