VA: Acid Rocks


yes, today is the day, the day that, one year ago, the twenty flight rock blog was started!
the year went fast, and it still amazes me when i look at this site and see that we already have 167 posts full of music, music history and musicians in history and memorabilia from the good old days.
especially the series with the BRAVO beatles starschnitt was greatly appreciated. i recieved a lot of nice and heart warming feedback for it, and that makes me very happy.
of course there has also been trouble, pictures being deleted and DMCA complaints about posts. i mostly had not much time for working on this blog, especially these days. but im sure the new year will be more relaxed and we can again share plenty of old memories, records and favourite pieces of music here.

as a special TFR-birthday present for you, here is a 221-song compilation of my favourite music. i put this together about a year ago as a cd to listen to while driving in my car. with over 200 tracks on it, it doesnt get boring too soon! but also, over 200 tracks is far too much to start discussing the single songs like i usually do here.
so i will just wish you a lot of fun flipping through the tracks, reminisce old favourites or explore new fantastic stuff. we have all kinds of genres here, pop, beat, psych, rock… just go for the psychedelic journey through my acid rocks compilation and let me know how you liked it!

    Hallo Sarah!

    Das ist eine sehr schöne und interessante Zusammenstellung (z.B. Spencer Davis – It's gonna work out fine oder Box Tops – Pray for rain), vielen Dank.
    Einige Titel kannte ich nicht, andere habe ich wiederentdeckt (z.B. Skip Bifferty – On love).

    Cuby & the Blizzards – LSD erinnert mich an John Mayall – You don't love me.
    Das Eingangsthema von Bodast – Nether street findet sich auf dem Yes Album im
    Stück Starship trooper(c.Wurm) wieder. In beiden Gruppen war Steve Howe beteiligt.
    Eine nette Variante von Why are we sleeping ist die Version It begins with a blessing… vom Album The Confession of Dr. Dream and other Stories von Kevin Ayers.

    Die Lösung Deines Rätsels findet man bei Deinen Famous Faces. Es erinnert mich jedoch an keinen mir bekannt Musiker. Sieht ein bisschen wie Donovan oder Dylan aus.

    Liebe Grüße von Wolfgang

  11. hallo wolfgang!

    wie du siehst hattest du recht, es ist bob dylan ;) bemerkenswert, da die meisten leute, denen ich es so gezeigt habe, nicht mal ein gesicht erkannten.

    habe mir die songs von cuby & the blizzards und john mayall mal hintereinander angehört. ist zwar nicht die selbe melodie, aber doch erstaunlich ähnlich. mayalls song ist nach meinem kenntnisstand ein jahr später erschienen.

    nether street ist eins meiner absoluten lieblingsstücke! die aufnahmen von bodast sind ja damals nicht veröffentlicht worden, kein wunder also dass steve howe teile davon bei yes wiederverwendet hat, sonst wären sie ja "verloren" gegangen. was für ein klasse musiker!

    diese version von why are we sleeping kenne ich nicht, aber ich werd mal danach ausschau halten ;)

    liebe grüße und vielen dank für deine rege beteiligung,
    sarah

    At first I saw King Kong and then some guy from the Simpsons and some little guy on the side. Of course once I saw the answer from Wolfgang I went back to look and indeed it was Bob. Nice comp. I think I will enjoy this a lot. Thanks, Timmy
