PXR5 is the ninth studio album by Hawkwind, released in 1979. It reached No. 59 on the UK album charts. Hawkwind's end-of-the-'70s incarnation heard on PXR5 was the last to feature vocalist/poet Bob Calvert alongside fellow veterans Simon House, Simon King, and, of course, Dave Brock. It is also the last in the sequence of brittle, pop-inflected records the band launched with Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music.

Short-lived English super group founded in the 70s by John Wetton and Bill Bruford (ex-King Crimson). They were active between 1977 - 1980, and reformed in 2012 with John Wetton, Eddie Jobson, and Terry Bozzio as the main line-up…
The Rolling Stones – Rolled Gold (1975) Decca/ROST 1/2 – 2 LP/UK Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Rolling Stones – Rolled Gold – The Very Best Of The Rolling Stones
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 2gb & 500mb
Label: Decca/ROST 1/2 | Released: 1975 | Genre: Classic-Rock

When Rolled Gold was initially released in 1975, there was no shortage of Rolling Stone compilations — hell, there were two others released that year, the useful Decca/London-era rarities compilation Metamorphosis and the slapped-together Rolling Stones Records singles comp Made in the Shade, containing the American singles released on Rolling Stones Records in the early ’70s, along with assorted album tracks.
Elton John – The Elton John ‘Live’ Collection (1979) Pickwick Records/PDA 047 – 2 LP/UK Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Label: Pickwick Records/PDA 047 | Released: 1979 | Genre: Pop-Rock

The British label Pickwick/Hallmark, is characterized by making re-editions. This time I scored another point by purchasing this double LP’s live by Elton John many, many years ago, with two concerts recorded in the 70s decade (1970 – 1974). I say a success because the records are intact, just like their original versions and the best in a single double album! What more can I ask for?

Cressida – Asylum
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 900mb & 200mb
Half Speed Mastering At Abbey Road Studios By Jon Astley
Label: Repertoire Records/REP 2224 | Released: 1971 | This Issue: 2014 | Genre: Progressive-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
5 stars CRESSIDA’s “Asylum” is a wonderful example of early British symphonic progressive rock. This 1971 release mixes catchy Paul McCartney-esque vocals with adventurously colorful instrumental passages. The new listener will probably notice singer Angus Cullen, whose voice comes close to McCartney’s (not totally, but close). His vocal melodies are some of the finest I’ve heard in 70s English prog, and the subtle British storytelling style in the lyrics is amusing to listen to.
The Dubliners – The Dubliners (1964) Transatlantic Records/TRA 116 – Original UK Mono Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Dubliners – The Dubliners
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Transatlantic Records/TRA 116 | Released: 1964 | Genre: Irish-Folk

Important: This is a historical and influential document of why Irish music captivated around the world.
As a curiosity, the vinyl of this LP weighs about 180g (!) It’s a very first edition, you can see it on Transatlantic labels.

Nick Saloman of the Bevis Frond once again invites us to join him in the obscure pleasures of little-known pop, R&B, and jazz instrumental sides of the '60s and '70s with this collection. A number of the selections featured on Return of the Instro-Hipsters are so obscure that even Saloman isn't sure just who is responsible for them (though he offers some educated guesses on the artists behind such names as Sharks, Oliver Bone, and the Masked Phantom), but there are a good share of solid grooves and kicky melodies to be found here from a number of gifted little-knowns. If you went to the movies in the '70s, "Soul Thing" by Tony Newman will sound familiar, while flautist Harold McNair solos over a Dave Brubeck-influenced piano groove on "The Hipster," Jerry Allen demonstrates new uses for game calls on "Fuzzy Duck," Thunder Road's synthesized version of "Peter Gunn" beats Art of Noise's variation on the theme by more than 15 years, "The Brooke Bond Beat" by Cliff Adams may be the most swingin' tea commercial ever, and the Outer Limits serve up some tough, moody rock, appropriately titled "Black Boots".
Lesley Duncan – Sing Children Sing (1971) CBS/S 64202 – Original UK Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Lesley Duncan – Sing Children Sing
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: CBS/S 64202 | Released: 1971 | Genre: Folk-Rock

Lesley Duncan’s debut album was a modestly engaging slice of early-’70s singer/songwriter rock, though not distinctive enough amidst a rapidly crowding field to command attention. Somewhat like Elton John, she blended parts of folk-rock, the emerging singer/songwriter movement, pop (though less pop than John), and bits of the Band’s gospel-rock flavor. Indeed, the record is best known for Duncan’s own version of her composition “Love Song,” covered by Elton John on Tumbleweed Connection (and way back in 1969 by a pre-“Space Oddity” David Bowie on a home demo that’s since been bootlegged).

Genre: Pop Rock, Soul / Label: ACE

Ace's Hit List series returns with another top-notch collection of US Hot 100 hits from the first half of the 1970s. The 1970s are now viewed with the same serious musical appreciation as the 50s and 60s. Hit List 2 will be a valuable addition to the collection of anyone who grew up listening to the decade's vibrant music. The album-oriented sound of FM radio might have arrived in the US by the start of the decade, but via the AM band you could still hear a diversity of snappy 45s on your transistor radio. Hit List 2 revisits another 24 of those singles, many of which were also successful in the UK. All versions heard here are the original US single versions, rather than the often-different album versions that have frequently been compiled into other 70s collections. In true Ace style, many of the featured artists are as popular now as when they charted with these songs, while for others the featured selection represented their one moment of chart fame.

Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz / 900mb
Label: Polydor/2383 186 | Release: 1973 | Genre: Celtic-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of celtic-folk music.
Christy Moore, Andy Irvine, Liam O'Flynn, and Dónal Lunny formed Planxty, a slang version of the Irish word "Slainte" meaning "good health," in 1973 after collaborating on the Christy Moore record Prosperous.
