Dick Holler


A kind of folk-rock record from the dude who wrote "Abraham, Martin and John" and "Snoopy vs. The Red Baron."

A Few Requests











Looking for anything in the Ensemble Petit series.





Would anyone have rips of these they'd be willing to share? If so, please put you link in the comments. And for those of you who hit me up for re-ups, you might get what you want if you contribute.

Sun Child


Couldn't find out much about this one. It came out in '74 and it sounds like nothing else. Give it a spin.

Universal Jones


A mish-mosh of soul, jazz and funk featuring Gene McDaniels. There would be no Volume 2.

Terry Baxter


Thanks to contributor Joe, here's "Feelin' Groovy." Again, links are vanishing pretty quick ... download while you can.

Attitudes


Here's a pretty rare one on George Harrison's Dark Horse label, featuring Ringo on one track. BTW, I continue to get lots of request for re-ups (just yesterday some person hit me up about 20 different times with "Can you reupload this?" ... hey chill, dude). Yep, it's clear someone is taking down links. But unless you want to contribute (there's that "donate" button, geddit?), I'm not motivated to replace links for the umpteenth time.

Rounding out a week of unsung non-heroes of the '70s, here's the US Radio Band.

Henson


Yet another sweet one-off, this one produced by Fame Records' Rick Hall, who praises to the skies in the liners. So what happened?

Sweet Lightnin'


On the heels of yesterday's post, here's yet another '70s band that had their moment before obscurity beckoned.

Danny Green


Just one of a slew of artists signed by the majors in the '70s that made just one record, and then ...

The Music of Julius Wechter


Another rare one, this a showcase of tunes from the leader of the Baja Marimba Band. BTW, I've noticed that many of my older zippy links are dead. The only reason I can figure is that someone has performed a hit job on this site. That's too bad, because everyone loses. For those you clamoring for re-ups, possibly the only thing that would motivate me to do that would be for you to click on the yellow "donate" button over there on the upper right.

Judy Singh


Here's a real rare one - so rare that it fetches upward of $1,000 in collector circles. The thing is, it is pretty great; Canadian Judy has a very sweet and soulful way with a tune. If anyone has "Make Someone Happy," the record she made with Tommy Banks, please post a link in the comments.

The Decline of Spengler


In the last few weeks I've lost two dear friends, one to cancer, the other to something I do not yet know. And on Wednesday, my mother-in-law passed. My heart is broken. In a fragile state came these songs. These are for you Dann and Joe and Maxine. Missing you.

Here's "Today's Greatest Hits," a nifty collection of soundalike songs performed by ... who knows? UPDATE: Thanks to Doyscoy, the tracks are now properly broken up.

The Mellow Moods of Eliot Wilder


Sorry about the lack of posts. For the past six weeks I've been laid low with an exceedingly painful neurological illness. At any rate, here is a collection of some of my quieter songs. Only available here.
