Peter Tosh - Bush Doctor (1978)

Peter Tosh foi um pioneiro do Reggae, assim como Bob Marley. Ambos estiveram juntos no The Wailers. Passaram por muita coisa juntos, até Tosh decidir carreira solo, lançando em 1976, seu primeiro disco solo, Legalize It, que, pelo teor contestador foi um grande sucesso.

Bob Marley - 1976 - Rastaman Vibration


De todos os álbuns de Bob Marley, este é meu preferido. Um bom som para este domingão...

Marillion



A banda foi formada em 1979, originalmente como Silmarillion, uma referência ao livro de J.R.R. Tolkien Silmarillion. O nome foi encurtado em 1980 após ameaças de ações legais contra a propriedade intelectual do nome criado por Tolkien. Os primeiro trabalhos do Marillion continham as letras poéticas e introspectivas de Fish, moldados com arranjos musicais complexos e sutis, refletindo as influências claras da banda com o rock progressivo, especialmente de bandas como Pink Floyd, Genesis, Van der Graaf Generator, Rush (principalmente na fase dos anos 1970) e Yes.
Lançaram em novembro de 1984 seu primeiro álbum ao vivo, Real to Reel.
Fish, na minha opinião, dava aquele toque de Rock Progressivo dos anos 70, parecendo muito com o Genesis, no início da carreira.



Peter Gabriel

Peter Gabriel fundou o Genesis em 1967 enquanto ainda era aluno da Charterhouse School com seus companheiros de banda, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips, Mike Rutherford e Chris Stewart. O nome da banda foi sugerido por um colega, o empresário de música pop Jonathan King, que produziu o primeiro álbum da banda, From Genesis to Revelation.
Apaixonado pela soul music, Gabriel foi influenciado por diferentes fontes para seu canto, incluindo Nina Simone, Gary Brooker do Procol Harum e Cat Stevens. Ele tocou flauta no álbum de Stevens Mona Bone Jakon de 1970. No entanto, as maiores influências de Gabriel vieram posteriormente: David Bowie e Syd Barrett fundador do Pink Floyd, que estavam redefinindo a cena musical britânica no final dos anos 60 e início dos anos 70.
Após deixar o Genesis, em 1975, Peter Gabriel lançou vãrios álbuns, alguns bem experimentais. Desta fase pós Genesis, destaco esta álbum.
Sessões de gravação entre 1981 e 1982 com o produtor David Lord acabaram resultando no quarto LP, Security, cuja produção teve mais responsabilidade do cantor. Apesar do som peculiar e dos temas motivados pelo distúrbio, o álbum foi bem sucedido e teve um compacto de sucesso, "Shock the Monkey", que também tornou-se um videoclipe inovador.



Billy Squier

Billy Squier é um Roqueiro Americano, pouco conhecido no Brasil, mas com um grande sucesso nos EUA. Ganhou dois discos de platina nos anos 80 e seus maiores sucessos foram "The Stroke" e "Emotions in Motion" . Um Rock bem marcado, meio Def Leppard, meio Bruce Springsteen.

Ten Years After - Blues Rock (UK)


Ten Years After are an English blues rock band, most popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Between 1968 and 1973, Ten Years After scored eight Top 40 albums on the UK Albums Chart. In addition they had twelve albums enter the US Billboard 200, and are best known for tracks such as "I'm Going Home", "Hear Me Calling", "I'd Love to Change the World" and "Love Like a Man". Their musical style consisted of blues rock, and hard rock. The band's core formed in late 1960 as Ivan Jay and the Jaycats. After several years of local success in the Nottingham/Mansfield area, known since 1962 as the Jaybirds and later as Ivan Jay and the Jaymen, Alvin Lee and Leo Lyons founded Ten Years After. Ivan Jay (born Ivan Joseph Harrison, 1939, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, died in April 2009, USA) sang lead vocals from late 1960 to 1962 and was joined by Ric Lee in August 1965, replacing drummer Dave Quickmire (born David Quickmire, 1940, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire), who had replaced Pete Evans (born Peter Evans, 1940, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire) in 1962. Ray Cooper (born 11 November 1943, Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire) played rhythm guitar, vocals from 1960 to 1962.


In 1966, The Jaybirds moved to London to back The Ivy League. In the same year, Chick Churchill joined the group as keyboard player. That November, the quartet signed a manager, Chris Wright, and changed their name to Blues Trip. Using the name Blues Yard they played one show at the Marquee Club supporting the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. They again changed their name, to Ten Years After – in honour of Elvis Presley, an idol of Lee's. (This was ten years after Presley's successful year, 1956). Some sources[which?] claim that the name was pulled by Leo Lyons from a magazine, advertising a book, Ten Years After The Suez (referring to the Suez Crisis). The group was the first act booked by the soon-to-be Chrysalis Agency. It secured a residency at the Marquee, and was invited to play at the Windsor Jazz Festival in 1967. That performance led to a contract with Deram, a subsidiary of Decca — the first band Deram signed without a hit single. In October 1967 they released the self-titled debut album, Ten Years After.


In 1968, after touring Scandinavia and the United States, Ten Years After released a second album, the live Undead, with the noteworthy song, "I'm Going Home". They followed this in February 1969 by the studio issue Stonedhenge, a British hit that included another well-known track, "Hear Me Calling" (it was released also as a single, and covered in 1972 by the British glam rock rising stars, Slade). In July 1969, the group appeared at the Newport Jazz Festival, in the first event rock bands were invited to. Between 26–27 July 1969, they appeared at the Seattle Pop Festival held at Gold Creek Park. On 17 August, the band performed a breakthrough American appearance at Woodstock; their rendition of "I'm Going Home" featuring Alvin Lee as lead singer, was featured in both the subsequent film and soundtrack album and catapulted them to star status. In 1970, Ten Years After released "Love Like a Man", the group's only hit in the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #10. It was the first record issued with a different playing speed on each side: a three-minute edit at 45rpm, and a nearly eight-minute live version at 33rpm.[citation needed] This song was on the band's fifth album, Cricklewood Green. In August 1970, Ten Years After played the Strawberry Fields Festival near Toronto, and the Isle of Wight Festival 1970. 


In 1971, the band switched labels to Columbia Records and released the hit album A Space in Time, which marked a move toward more commercial material. It featured the group's biggest hit, "I'd Love to Change the World". In late 1972, the group issued their second Columbia album Rock & Roll Music to the World and, in 1973, the live double album Ten Years After Recorded Live. The band subsequently broke up after their final 1974 Columbia album, Positive Vibrations. The members reunited in 1983 to play the Reading Festival, and this performance was later released on CD as The Friday Rock Show Sessions – Live at Reading '83' . In 1988, the members reunited for a few concerts and recorded the album About Time (1989) with producer Terry Manning in Memphis. In 1994, they participated in the Eurowoodstock festival in Budapest. In 2003, the other band members replaced Alvin Lee with Joe Gooch, and recorded the album, Now. Material from the following tour was used for the 2005 double album, Roadworks. Alvin Lee mostly played and recorded under his own name following his split from the band. He died from complications during a routine medical procedure on 6 March 2013. Ric Lee is also currently in a band called Ric Lee's Natural Born Swingers, along with Bob Hall.












What sets this release apart from earlier TYA albums is the liberal use of tasty acoustic guitar and plenty of sound effects and studio tricks that complement the overall texture. From tuning a radio dial to open a 12-bar boogie blaster (Baby, Won't You Let Me Rock and Roll You) to backward tape solos (Let The Sky Fall) to 50's Sci-Fi (Here They Come), Alvin Lee and Company were in top form on this 1971 "Time Capsule". Lee also shows that he was no slouch on harmonica as he belts out the blues harp (One Of These Days) along with the nice licks from his trusty hot-rodded Gibson ES-335's. Lee's lyrics ran the full gamut on this collection, from country honk (Once There Was A Time) to otherworldly beings "who fly out of the sun", and "know everything we must learn" (Here They Come). He sings painfully about the pitfalls of drug addiction, but optimistically about recovery (Hard Monkeys, I've Been There Too) and tells us that he notices the World's ills but doesn't know what to do, so he "leaves it up to you" (I'd Love to Change the World).

Leo Lyons (Bass), Chick Churchill (Keyboards) and Ric Lee (Drums) are excellent as usual. This is the one that occupied a particular "Space in Time" for its era, and gets my vote as the best overall TYA album due to the diversity of the material and subject matter. There's just about something for everyone. (Douglas J. Hultsman)

Baiano e os Novos Caetanos


Criado nos anos 70 a partir de um quadro no programa Chico City, Baiano e os Novos Caetanos era composto por Chico Anysio, Arnaud Rodrigues e Renato Piau.



O nome era alusão ao grupo de Pepeu, Baby, Morais Moreira e Paulinho Boca de Cantor, que se auto denominaram Novos Baianos, quando Gil e Caetano se exilaram, durante a ditadura militar. Foram cinco LPs lançados, além dos discos das carreiras individuais dos dois principais criadores das músicas e letras, Chico e Arnaud.




A dupla já compunha junta e tiveram uma música gravada por Toni Tornardo em 1972, sendo que Arnaud fez uma trilha sonora em 1970, Tilim, e também compôs em parceria com Marku Ribas. Em próxima oportunidade será postado por aqui, junto com os demais discos de sua carreira solo.



Fica aqui o acervo de talento, criatividade e humor do grupo.

Abraços!

Jimi Hendrix - Message from 9 to the Universe


Nine to the Universe is a posthumous tenth studio album of American guitarist Jimi Hendrix, released in March and June 1980 in the United States and the United Kingdom respectively. It was the seventh Hendrix studio album released after his death and the third to be produced by Alan Douglas. The album contains five jam sessions, edited by Douglas. It only charted in one country - the United States, and even then only, briefly, reaching 127th on the Top 200 Billboard chart, before dropping out quickly. Various versions of the jams on the LP had previously circulated widely on bootlegs.

Nine to the Universe is the third posthumous, compilation Hendrix release produced by Alan Douglas. He had previously wiped almost all of the backing musicians from the original recordings and replaced them with session musicians on Crash Landing and Midnight Lightning and heavily edited (even significantly changing the tempo in some cases), overdubbing extended rhythm guitar, female backing singers, etc. on occasion. During his pre-release promo interviews/released statements, for his first release Crash Landing, Douglas strongly hinted that he intended to release the jam session that Hendrix recorded with John McLaughlin, which would justify his loud claims that Hendrix intended embarking on a "new" jazz direction. But whether McLaughlin refused permission or not, it was never released officially and never could be as, when the jam was finally bootlegged, it proved that McLaughlin's semi-acoustic guitar's pickup was faulty and was nothing more that a rough jam.[5] It was recorded during a later part of the session on March 25, that also featured Dave Holland (an English jazz musician who was then mostly known as Miles Davis' regular acoustic and electric bass player and his contribution to Davis' seminal post-bop/fusion albums between 1968 and 1970 - e.g. "Filles de Kilimanjaro", "In a Silent Way" and "Bitches' Brew") and Buddy Miles on drums. Instead, Douglas heavily edited, and released a number of disparate jam sessions (removing over 50% from each jam, apart from "Drone Blues" - which only lost a third - one of Hendrix' very first, new recordings with Billy Cox, who hadn't played with Jimi in three years and some young 'pop' musicians recruited from a club.) recorded between March and August 1969,[1] (mostly) retaining the original backing tracks and musicians.

Secos e Molhados


A primeira formação após o fim do grupo em 1974 surgiu em maio de 1978, João Ricardo lança o terceiro disco dos Secos & Molhados com Lili Rodrigues, Wander Taffo, Gel Fernandes e João Ascensão. O terceiro disco foi lançado, e mais um sucesso do grupo – o que seria o último de reconhecimento nacional, e único fora da formação original – "Que Fim Levaram Todas as Flores?", uma das canções mais executada no Brasil naquele ano, o que trouxe o novo grupo de João Ricardo às apresentações televisivas.


Caetano Veloso & Banda Black Rio












Em 1978, Caetano Veloso junta-se à banda Black Rio para fazer uma série de shows. Um desses shows, ao vivo no Teatro Carlos Gomes, na cidade do Rio de Janeiro, foi registrado e lançado só em 2002 na caixa de cd’s “Todo Caetano”. As músicas de Caetano nesses shows, com a banda Black Rio, ganharam uma nova roupagem, com um som mais funky e até um disco.
