Volume 573

13 afternoon VOL. 573






















Conceived by MICHAEL FREYLER, this is the stuff that dreams are made of. Searching lyrics floating on a symphony like a drama played in a god-forsaken world, at times heavy and merciless guitar riffs to complete a gut-wrenching listening experience.

2 THE FLOWER KINGS Stardust We Are
3 RIVERSIDE Parasomnia (from Pt. I- Fearless)
4 GAZPACHO Chequered Light Buildings

Grand Funk Railroad

GRAND FUNK RAILROAD - 13 afternoon

Bluesy hard rock philosophy in its truest, purest form couldn't get any better than Grand Funk and for a mere trio to have delivered such primordial sound, humanity has achieved scintillating spheres of brilliance; bringing into our earthly consciousness the celestial.

Volume 567























Another solid contribution by MICHAEL FREYLER, whose vault is open exclusively for us here. Indeed, the brass connection is made stronger by this mind-blowing set, with its pulsating bass lines and that unmistakable horny sound.
I wish to declare my deep-seated rancor against "lengthy drum solos", as evidenced of my editing such tracks going ape shit.  A fucking drum solo, what is that, really? Recordings made by Grand Funk, Led Zeppelin, Rare Earth, Iron Butterfly, etc. of which a track is devoted, for the most part, to a solo drum performance blatantly exhibited lack of critical thinking, if not elegance, in making us suffer inconsequential percussive rackets; and in excruciatingly great measure at that! But, what can you expect? Brilliance is a rarity among homo sapiens. 
Having had a good listen to THE IDES OF MARCH's "Tie-Dye Princess" opened up the floodgates of my wrath upon discovering there's after all a better way to showcase a drummer's artistry. This track demonstrates the musical genius of the group and by interspersing the prominent drum parts with other instruments they achieved finesse. And how I love the sound of the drums! I'm pretty sure John Bonham must have evoked it countless times to those guys hell-bent on having a smoke break while he busts his guts out, pounding alone on stage.

MICHAEL FREYLER from Germany shared with us here his strong predilection for the brass rock genre. Having in my possession the tracks needed to make a compilation, except for RASTUS, his suggestions made it easier as I only had to add a couple of tracks to make the 60-minute mark. It is a gratifying experience indeed to meet people who are enthusiastic about something whose interest overlaps ours. Thank you, Michael!
