Les Baxter-Hell's Belles- 1970 US OST




Les Baxter's (THE DUNWICH HORROR, PANIC IN YEAR ZERO, BEACH BLANKET BINGO) original score to the 1970 AIP motion picture HELL'S BELLS, starring Jeremy Slate, Adam Roarke, and Jocelyn Lane, and directed by Maury Dexter. Baxter's groovy, full-throttle rock score punches this fun biker flick into overdrive with uber-catchy riffs, fun vocals and late 60's rock-era spills and chills. (amazon)
From this soundtrack i chose "Wheels", "Hot Wind" and "Hell's Belles".

VA Living Chicago Blues Vol.1-1978 Sonet, Alligator Records




This compilations (vol.1-6) contains some of the best musicians men and woman from Chicago blues scene.
LINER NOTES: "Every night in Chicago, the sounds of blues bands reverberate from narrow barrooms, basement taverns, and small, modest lounges throughout the city.  At black neighborhood bars on the South and West Sides, decorated with Christmas tinsel, day-glo zodiac posters, handwritten signs on the walls; at the more publicized, fashionable nightspots on the North Side; or just at house parties out on the streets- the blues men and women of Chicago are singing, shouting, crying, laughing, celebrating.  Songs of hard times, heartbreak, loneliness; songs to drive the blue feelings away, to rock the night and let the good times roll".
From Vol.1 i chose The Jimmy Johnson Blues Band "Serves Me Right To Suffer" and  Left Hand Frank And His Blues Band "Linda Lu".

Joy Unlimited -1970 Germany (US Mercury promo release)





This 1970 album by the German group Joy Unlimited was, to the eternal confusion of discographers, issued under three separate titles. In Germany, it was called "Overground", in the UK, "Turbulence" and in the US, simply "Joy Unlimited".
Although the band would later go in a more progressive direction, this LP was not all that progressive in nature, and not at all like the avantart rock of the 1970s Krautrock movement.
Instead, it was a competent amalgam of trends in American and British mainstream rock, pop, and soul, rather like the kind flashed by numerous bands emerging in neighboring Holland at the same time, like Shocking Blue.
Joy Unlimited sang entirely in English and were fronted by a woman singer Joy Fleming, as well as an array of guitar and organ textures and breaks and samples galore.
From this album i chose "All Together Now" and "Helpless Child".
