Ashland began in the Pacific Northwest in 1991, just as grunge fever was breaking out of Seattle and into the mainstream. Despite the temptation to capitalize on the new sound, Ashland decided to go in a progressive rock direction that put them at odds with their minimalist alternative brethren. Bassist/vocalist Chad McMurray, drummer Dean Katona, and guitarists Kevin Brooks and Wayne Tapia began to release albums independently, finding a large audience on the Internet during the release of Real Time in 2001.

Claudio Dentes - Pantarei

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 1979
Time: 37:00
Size: 85,7 MB
Label: Universal
Styles: Progressive Rock/RPI
Art: Full

Tracks Listing:
 1. Pantarei Parte 1 - 4:20
 2. Pantarei Parte 2 - 5:19
 3. Tarantel - 2:56
 4. Rav - 4:39
 5. Camden Town - 7:06
 6. Imago - 6:26
 7. Rock O'Cockey - 5:22
 8. Untitled - 0:49

A London-born multi-instrumentalist living in Milan, Dentes released his first solo album with the help of many important session musicians. The LP is entirely instrumental, but the result is mediocre and went largely unnoticed.
The album has been reissued on CD in 2010 by Universal as part of the Progressive Italia - Gli anni '70 vol.5 box set.


Henk Werkhoven - Orphical Positions

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 1982
Time: 38:41
Size: 90,0 MB
Label: VMU
Styles: Progressive Rock
Art: Full

Tracks Listing:
 1. Orphical Positions - 6:34
 2. Feints Of Love - 2:44
 3. The Witches Charm - 3:20
 4. Avalon - 3:17
 5. Blue Friends - 3:11
 6. Alan's Song - 3:27
 7. Tales In The Morning - 5:03
 8. Eleanor - 3:23
 9. Sylvan Delights - 2:36
10. Orphical Positions Reprise - 5:02

You can read about Mr. Werkhoven online. Another one of those Renaissance guys, constantly in creativity mode, yet few know who he is or what he does. As you read the bio, you could come away thinking this is a new age album. Couldn't be further from the truth. Basically "Orphical Positions" is good old fashioned instrumental progressive rock lead by flute, violin and guitar (acoustic and electric), along with exotics like sitar. A crack rhythm section keeps the proceedings moving along at a crisp pace. At once I'm reminded of Camel's "Snowgoose" and Rousseau's "Flowers in Asphalt". But I also hear Anthony Phillips, Kenso, Flairck, Coda and Verdaguer. A very fine release.
It was a ping-ponged suggestion checked by three teams, Prog Folk, Eclectic Prog and Symphonic Prog, but none of them found their category suitable. It's a bit of a tricky one to classify as a quite easy listening album with folk, world and symphonic rock elements. I like the "exotic" world music qualities, and I don't mind some "syrup" in my listening. Had I still been on the Eclectic Team, I think I would have said yes even if I wouldn't find it an ideal fit, but different people hear things differently. Personally, I find it sufficiently PA worthy and wonder if Crossover might want to give it a go.

Arif Mardin is best known as one of the top producers for Atlantic Records, especially in the jazz division. Since he was also a musician, he self-indulged himself by putting out a couple of his own albums. Luckily he was able to enlist the services of a host of jazz luminaries. This album features the likes of Billy Cobham, Gary Burton, Hubert Laws, Ron Carter, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, Joe Farrell and the list goes on and on. This marks the worldwide CD debut of this fine album.

Robby Krieger Organization - RKO Live!

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 1995
Time: 66:26
Size: 152,8 MB
Label: One Way Records Inc
Styles: Jazz Rock
Art: Full

Tracks Listing:
 1. Revelation -  7:30
 2. Back Door Man -  4:07
 3. Blue Note Shuffle -  5:04
 4. Spanish Caravan/Spain -  8:35
 5. Riders On The Storm -  6:59
 6. So What -  8:15
 7. African Daisy -  5:35
 8. Gavin Leggit -  4:38
 9. Light My Fire - 15:41

Recall the brilliant Paul Rothchild-produced Doors album "Strange Days." Such a tightly structured concept album, perhaps reflecting the all-time greatest blend of unity of a group into single songs (and mood). Robby Krieger, without a pick and employing bottleneck, did the beautiful high-pitched guitar glides and slides and eerie twangs on various songs, played the acid solo in "When the Music's Over," electrified in "My Eyes Have Seen You," and dished out regular great blues and hard rock guitar. The Doors were so together, man--it was not even Jim Morrison and The Doors, always The Doors. But this is a very talented great guitarist, who wrote "Light My Fire," after all. What's he like on his own?
Many years have passed since then, and Robby has become his own man. His accomplishments are many, and his post-Doors production exceeds that of the legendary group. Still, he found demand for Doors songs during his solo career was always there, and in fact increased over time. The Robby Krieger Organization is a revolving door band, no pun intended, known for playing mostly Doors numbers and jazz covers, although they have a few jazz songs of their own. The group on this live CD comprises only Robby and his two-person accompaniment, who perform four Doors songs along with several covers of jazzy instrumental numbers and Robby's own heavy, fuzz-boxey "Gavin Leggit." The songs were performed in small venues fit for the jazz numbers that were included. Robby's beautiful Doors classic "Spanish Caravan" and Chick Corea's "Spain" are combined in a flamenco medley. Another of the jazz numbers, "African Daisy," is a fine composition by RKO percussionist Dale Alexander.
The solos of Robby and his mates cook in the jazz tunes, but I have to be honest, "Spanish Caravan" and the other Doors songs are the highlight. But they are less in the vein of The Doors and more so in that of Robby's group, which is jazz. This includes Willie Dixon's "Backdoor Man," such a defining cover for Jim Morrison's stage persona, but here with Robby on vocals instead. Robby's "Light My Fire," my favorite song of all time, has its solo considerably extended, lending itself to jazzy interpretation. "Riders on the Storm" fits in well because it is arguably more jazzy than any Doors song in original form. But here, it is Skip Vanwinkl's Hammond organ rather than Ray Manzarek's piano we hear, along with Robby's liquid guitar, gliding and flowing, producing a great variation on this hypnotic song. Still, for all I've said about jazz, I must emphasize the eclecticism on the CD, for that is what Robby is all about. He is often described as a flamenco guitarist for want of a single adjective, but The Doors--they were a psychedelic blues band, right? Enough of regular rock and blues is here, along with flamenco and all that jazz.

Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound - Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 2005
Time: 36:19
Size: 84,0 MB
Label: Tee Pee Records
Styles: Psychedelic Rock
Art: Front

Tracks Listing:
 1. Mars - 4:34
 2. Scorpio Sun Queen - 6:00
 3. Creeping Spirits - Talkonaut - 8:03

San Francisco’s Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound is a soundtrack for strange days and futures bright and bleak. But there is also a crooked thread that runs backward through every Assemble Head record—the celestial trajectories of The Notorious Byrd Brothers and circa ‘70 Floyd; the dusty canyon stomps of Crazy Horse, slashing action pop of the savage young Who, Italian bastardizations of Lalo Schifrin cop movie scores, and the scuzz-bomb shrapnel of latter-day garage mongers like Mudhoney and Monoshock.
The band’s third LP, When Sweet Sleep Returned, is propelled to some extent by that same glorious distillate. But it also finds the group speaking their own twisted tongue more assuredly than ever—marrying hazy Saturday moods, interstellar sonics and wrecking-ball swing to song and harmony in poems for California, lovers, ghosts, the stars, and a world gone stark raving mad.
For When Sweet Sleep Returned, Assemble Head re-united with engineering mastermind Tim Green, who manned the controls for masterpieces from Howlin’ Rain, Comets on Fire, Six Organs of Admittance, and Earthless, as well as Assemble Head’s 2007 releaseEkranoplan.
The band entered Green’s Louder Studios in October 2008 with an expanded lineup including original trio Michael Lardas, Jefferson Marshall and Charlie Saufley; longtime theremin and synth collaborator Anderson Lanbridge; and mega-multi-instrumentalist Camilla Saufley. The band also reached out to Brett Constatino and Evan Reese of fellow Frisco freaks Sleepy Sun, for vocal harmonies on the beautifully sprawling and soaring “Two Birds.”
Elsewhere, When Sweet Sleep Returned finds Assemble Head exploring the sun-dappled terrain of daydreams on “The Slumbering Ones”, hard-chugging crust-fuzz boogie on “Clive and the Lyre”, bittersweet melodiousness on “By the Rippling Green”, and space-temple chorale chime on “Kolob Canyon.”
All this ecstatic aural gumbo—garnished with illustrations by hyper-surrealist artist Andy Ristaino—will be served up in early April 2009 on Tee Pee Records.
