From The Vault: Caravan - “In the Land of Grey and Pink” (1971)


“Progressive Rock,” and “Concept Albums,” have a rich heritage, blending themed music, stretching out the score stylistically beyond the chorus / verse tradition, and incorporated elements of the avant garde, jazz, rock, and classical music. Progressive Rock flowered out of the psychedelic sounds created in the 1960’s, yet it was also a reaction to this same music ... and probably the very best of this genre was created by Caravan, who built on the early works done by Pink Floyd, Yes, and King Crimson, who’s albums seemed to be a series of songs strung together, while the songs of Caravan actually seemed to flow in and out of each other.

The Steppenwolf Story - Chapter Six


Steppenwolf “Steppenwolf Live” (1970)

Released in April 1970, five months after its predecessor LP “Monster,” Steppenwolf’s classic two LP set “Steppenwolf Live” was recorded, mainly at one gig at The Santa Monica Civic Center in Santa Monica, CA, during the band’s tour supporting “Monster” and was one of the soon to become en vogue double album live releases of the 1970s.

Groovy Movies - “Groovy Movies” (2017) review

To say that Groovy Movies have been influenced by The Beatles, or from the pop culture from the late 60’s, would be an understatement … so please, allow me to begin with their “Chasing the Sun” single, which is a straight ahead low tempo knockoff of “Taxman,” laced with more psychedelic Beatlesque lyrics, that are delivered with enough honesty to make you smile, and allow the band to skate on through. And I haven’t even mentioned that the picture sleeve for this single that’s been lifted straight from Love’s catalog.

Beachglass Interview


Filtering in from the deep beyond, or perhaps merely as a musically sustained echo that’s been working its way like a long lost postcard to your front door, Clouding breathes with atmospheric lonely guitar washes, over which have been laid hauntingly enticing vocals that neither invite you in nor hold you out, as if they exist tethered in the moment of their being, and are gone just as mysteriously.

The Steppenwolf Story - Chapter Five


Steppenwolf “Monster” (1969)

“Monster,” Steppenwolf’s fifth LP, fourth from the studio, was released in November 1969, a mere four months after “Early Steppenwolf” a live set recorded May 14, 1967, while the band was still performing under their original moniker, Sparrow. Consisting of seven tracks, highlighted by the opening, nine minute, fifteen second, medley, of which the title track was the opening section, it was Steppenwollf’s most political album and their first to not make the Top 10 on the Billboard charts, peaking at #17 in early 1970.

Pete International Airport - “Hurray For The People” premiere


Peter Holmström named his solo project Pete International Airport after a song by his other band The Dandy Warhols. Safer With The Wolves is a meticulously crafted psyche rock journey into the dark heart of electronica upon which Peter has enlisted the help of numerous like-minded musical allies.

The Steppenwolf Story - Chapter Four


Steppenwolf “Early Steppenwolf” (1969)

Steppenwolf’s fourth release, “Early Steppenwolf” which hit record stores in July 1969 is a most confusing part of the band’s legacy for several reasons. The album, consisting of six tracks recorded live at The Matrix in San Francisco on May 14, 1967, predating the recording of the group’s 1968 s/t debut LP, and was actually a performance done while the quintet was known by its original name, Sparrow.

Beachglass - “Clouding” (2007) review


Beachglass - Clouding (2007)

Filtering in from the deep beyond, or perhaps merely as a musically sustained echo that’s been working its way like a long lost postcard to your front door, Clouding breathes with atmospheric lonely guitar washes, over which have been laid hauntingly enticing vocals that neither invite you in nor hold you out, as if they exist tethered in the moment of their being, and are gone just as mysteriously.

The Steppenwolf Story - Chapter Three


Steppenwolf - “At Your Birthday Party” (1969)

Released only five months after its predecessor, Steppenwolf’s “At Your Birthday Party” their third LP, is an important part of the band’s ABC/Dunhill catalog for several reasons. The album segued the transition of the band’s sound from psychedelic to harder-edged rock, was the last album with Michael Monarch as lead guitarist and marked the return of bassist Nick St. Nicholas, who had been an original member of the band, but exited before the recording of their debut s/t LP.

From The Vault: The Glass Family - “Electric Band” (1968)


Being the perpetual opening band, The Glass Family, displaying an invitingly harmonic surf and garage sound, nearly channeling the likes of Spirit, this good natured band of eccentrics, who opened for groups such as The Doors, The Grateful Dead, Gram Parsons, Vanilla Fudge, and Love, have more backstage stories than you could ever imagine. Perhaps one of the best being the time Owsley Stanley was walking around in the shadows dosing tiny paper cups of punch laced with LSD, handing them out to the band, and then disappearing into the audience with a tray of the same, setting minds on fire, melting walls, and increasing the intensity of the music ten fold.
