15. 16 With A Bullet  
16. Detroit  
This debut opus from former Rationals frontman and Michigan rock semi-legend Scott Morgan gathers some fine originals and carefully selected cover material for a musical blend that's pure Motor City in derivation. With Morgan on rhythm guitar and sharing lead vocals with Kathy Deschaine, the disc kicks off with a cover of Detroit doo woppers the Dynamics' local hit "Misery," featuring Deschaine on vocals. The flipside of that single, the comically macho "I'm the Man," is aboard as well, featuring a screaming vocal from Morgan and a pounding beat to back it up. Social consciousness raising comes in the form of two finely wrought compositions, "Other End of the City" and "Dante." The violent drumming of ex-Stooges skin beater Scott Asheton is featured on "I Want More," a Morgan original. Brian Delaney (of Kiss Me Screaming) fortifies all the tracks with solid lead guitar work, especially on "Dreams Never Lie" and a cover of the Stones' "Empty Heart." Former bass player for the Up, Gary Rasmussen keeps a pumping groove going throughout the album and positively shines on "And Then There Was Love." Both sides of Morgan's self-released single, "16 With a Bullet" and his homage to hometown roots rockers, "Detroit," are included as bonus tracks.

Brilliantly crazy garage rock by four guys in head-to-toe mummy gear. In 2003 they released this collection of hard to find and out of print tracks, all of which sound like they were recorded from inside a cave somewhere. That sounds like a complaint, but The Mummies were masters in the art of lo-fi.

Elliott Murphy - Just A Story From America

Elliott Murphy - Just A Story From America
In wav- Scans are included
1. Drive All Night 
2. Summer House 
3. Just A Story From America 
4. Rock Ballad 
5. Think Too Hard 
6. Anastasia 
7. Darlin' (And She Called Me) 
8. Let Go 
9. Caught Short In The Long Run 
For his fourth album, Just a Story from America, Elliott Murphy moved on to his third major label,
appropriately finding a berth with Columbia Records, home of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen. A
follower of Dylan and a contemporary of Springsteen, Murphy also attempts to invest rock & roll
with poetry and then sings it in an alternately husky and whiny tenor. For Just a Story from
America, he traveled to London and recorded with a band including Genesis drummer Phil Collins
and, for a bluesy solo on "Rock Ballad," former Rolling Stone guitarist Mick Taylor. "Drive All Night"
sets the scene early, an uptempo rocker paced by a Farfisa organ reminiscent of Del Shannon,
while the lyric reflects the same sense of youthful adventure via a fast car on a highway that
Springsteen describes so often. Murphy's artistic vision is more urban and literary than
Springsteen's, however, his short stories in song concern self-consciously arty characters bent on
an escape as much spiritual as economic.
Special Thanx to JPaul for this great contribution!  

With ERNIE BROOKS (The Modern Lovers) on bass and TONY MACHINE (David Johansen Group) on Drums

 9. Never As Old As You  

As I lay down with my lady
The sounds of the night keep me warm
I'm living a city life - I'm living maybe
But tonight there's no reason to be strong

Romantic poets guard the darkness
My my all at such an early age
An old man sheds a tear
He opens a little gold locket
He thought his little girl was lost in an Indian raid

Somewhere in these night lights lies the answer
And you can get diamonds by the yard
A tiffany dream - A porcelain dancer
An old man playing blues guitar

Midnight I surrender
I live beneath your ancient spell
You've been my lover since I can't remember
You save my life with the stories you tell

The Moving Sidewalks NON-LP SINGLES and unreleased tracks

The Moving Sidewalks NON-LP SINGLES and unreleased tracks
In wav - Scans are included
1. 99th Floor  
2. What Are You Going To Do?  
3. What Are You Going To Do?  
4. Headin Out - unreleased  
5. Need Me  
6. Every Night A New Surprise - unreleased

10. I Want To Hold Your Hand  
11. Flashback - unreleased  
12. Stay Away The Coachmen - unreleased  
13. Stay Away The Coachmen - unreleased  
14. 99th Floor The Coachmen - unreleased  
15. Stay Away The Coachmen - unreleased  
16. 99th Floor The Coachmen - unreleased  

Non-LP singles, demos and alternate takes that provide the bridge from "99th Floor" to Flash. The three singles include "99th Floor" (also heard twice more in earlier form by the Moving Sidewalks' predecessor, The Coachmen) and its B-side "What Are You Going To Do." The band continued to flirt with garage even as it turned more heavily to the blues with the guitar-and-organ instrumental "Headin' Out," and their single for Wand (the bluesy "Need Me") features the punkier "Every Night a New Surprise" on the flip. Their last single, a cover of the Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand," is either magnificent or Spinal Tapian, depending on your perspective.
The earlier tracks from the Coachmen (featuring future Moving Sidewalks Gibbons, drummer Dan Mitchell and organist Kelly Parker) include two earlier takes of "99th Floor" and three (including one instrumental backing) of the otherwise unrecorded "Stay Away." The strummed guitar of the early "99th Floor" take gives it a hint of folk-revival, though the harmonica solo still has the sting of the garage. "Stay Away" is a tidy rocker with a surf influence, particularly in Gibbons' tasty guitar breaks.

This is the second cd of THE COMPLETE COLLECTION box, since cd one (i.e. album FLASH), has been posted a million times on other blogs, it will not be posted here!

Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers,L.A.M.F. - Special Edition! The Heartbreakers' 1977 classic album 'L.A.M.F. the lost '77 mixes' re-released as a special deluxe 2xCD edition with a bonus CD containing demos, rehearsals and outtakes. ,Johnny Thunders & Jerry Nolan formed the Heartbreakers in 1975 out of the ashes of the New York Dolls. Firstly together with Richard Hell, and then with Billy Rath & Walter Lure. Malcolm McLaren invited them join the Sex Pistols, Clash & Damned for the Anarchy tour in 1976. They signed to Track Records and recorded 'L.A.M.F.' The album was acclaimed as a classic, but was famously flawed with a 'muddy mix'. A properly audible version remained unheard until 1994 when Jungle sifted through the original master-tapes and reconstructed it., The bonus disc 2 features alternative mixes, and two demo sessions from early and late 1977. It also includes previously unheard instrumental backing tracks. Johnny died in 1991,followed by Jerry's death in 1992. Unquestionably one of THE great punk albums. These lost mixes illuminate the savage beauty of the likes of 'Born To Lose' and 'Pirate Love' like never before.

In the beginning of 2010, and in such an uncommon place for their soulful passion as Barcelona (Spain), The Excitements have come crashing out the gate delivering a Rhythm and Blues breed of music with a Soul and Rock edge, completely unseen in stages nowadays.
Influenced by the finest black music of the preceeding century, its rhythm section delivers tight backbone, and is complemented by a horn section in the late 50’s and early 60’s tradition, all of it fronted by the powerful howl of Koko Jean Davis.

Garage rock mayhem from Finland. This is the Flaming Sideburns' first and best album. Uneven, to be sure, but the best stuff is really something. Covers of The Wailers' "Out of Our Tree" and Litter's "Action Woman" set the tone.  The two covers are great, but there are some real nice originals as well: "Crashing Down", "Ungrounded Confusion" and, of course, "Testify" ('You gotta testify/you gotta go to church/you gotta drink that wine/you gotta testify'). Praise the lord! It's Time to Testify...Brothers and Sisters!
