Baby Lemonade  performed by Syd Barrett  1970
Recommended by popgoestheculture [profile]

The best opening to any album ever. Amazing guitar solos, lagging drums, warm organs, and Mr.Barrett himself. It doesn't get any better than this.

from Barrett, available on CD (Capitol)



  09 Mar 03 ·konsu: Yeah. This song has so much ragged beauty. The whole records just a circus of deranged, delightful tracks. I also like "Maisy" ,"Wined & Dined" , & "Dominoes"...
  28 Oct 05 ·n-jeff: I love it too, theres a fantastic version done for one of the John Peel sessions that Strange Fruit put out in the eighties, that is equally wayward, and equally good. Considering how slight it is, and how lacking in obvious "Psychedelic" conventions, it is surprisingly my favourite Barrett song.
Cavaleiro Andante  performed by Abilio Manoel  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

This song is simply unreal. It starts out in a kind of 4/4 samba groove with a highly prominent cuica and a funky strummed acoustic guitar chord progression before the super-catchy pizzicato-violins riff comes in, and Abilio's mellow voice singing the melody. It's sunshiney and catchy, with a bit of a haunting aftertaste, very Brazilian. I can never hear this song enough times!! Abilio Manoel is a Sao Paulo-based singer-songwriter from the late-60s-70s (still active) who wrote a few moderate hits without attaining even a Marcos Valle level of popularity. Good for Marcos, since Abilio's work would have caused me a few sleepless nights if I were him. And both on the same label, too! Abilio's stuff is hard to find, but very worth the effort.....I've already given Dusty Groove the heads-up about the CD....

from Pena Verde (Odeon)
available on CD - 20 Sucessos (EMI Brazil)

Suite Imaginaria  performed by Marcos Valle  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

An unusual Marcos track, a 9-minute instrumental suite tucked away at the end of one of his most adventurous albums. Hugely recommended to Axelrod/Electric Prunes fans, as it sounds almost exactly like something from "Release Of An Oath" or "Mass In F Minor."

from Marcos Valle, available on CD (EMI Toshiba Japan)



Stormy  performed by The Third Wave  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

Many versions of this song, but for me this is simply the ultimate. Every time I hear it I drift off into a daydream.....

from Here And Now, available on CD (Crippled Dick Hot Wax)


Fresh Air  performed by Cal Tjader  1970
Recommended by gregcaz [profile]

I could go on at length about this awesome track, but I'll just restrain myself. Let's just say that rate this song very highly in my personal Tjader pantheon, and I have around 65 Cal albums.

from Tjader (Fantasy)



  09 Aug 03 ·jarjar: Uncredited backing vocals on this track are by Wendy and Bonnie, who also sang on Tjader's Auga Dulce.
