the wilde flowers featuring brian hopper, hugh hopper, robert wyatt and kevin ayers, and even mike ratledge, richard sinclair and zobe: everything they recorded between 1965 and 1969; plus a little bit more

 
the wilde flowers throughout the years 1965 to 1969 of course were brian hopper, hugh hopper, robert wyatt, richard coughlan, richard sinclair and kevin ayers, plus assorted friends and relatives like mike ratledege and the people of zobe: the prototype and the nucleus of the canterbury sound and scene. here you can see, hear and download the 1994 compilation of their work, plus some bonustracks i found in my collection.


 
both the original 1994 voiceprint version and the 2015 floating world release (including a bonus cd with twelve tracks of sessions and sketches falsely credited to the wilde flowers) do for one reason or any other not mention the three veryvery wonderful tracks that were hidden waydowndeep in the canterburied sounds collection from 1998, but of course they are included here, as well as a jimi hendrix version of a wilde flowers tune (well; almost a hendrix tune, but no, but then again, yes, but) and a precursering track by the hopper brothers. i hope you will enjoy this alternative alternative version.

more than two and a half hours of ultrarare german kraut from 1969 and way beyond: amon düül 2: the phallus dei files

 
 
phallus dei of course is the dark star hidden in the amon düül 2 gesamtkunstwerk. and though the epic track on their homonymously named 1969 album is commonly known, there is much more to say. for your listening pleasure i compiled two cds worth of live versions, mixes and related euphemera i found in my collection that you might not be aware of. take care of your favourite drug and listen or download or die.
 
in the download file way down below you will find two folders, both filled with some 70 minutes of music ready to be burned as roms plus some scans and photos. the very short intros and interludes by the way are some sketches i produced along the way.
 
so here we go-go:

the green folder:
 
 
01 - intro (01:00) (listen directly)
02 - jam into phallus dei (38:24) (munich 1969 / location unknown)
03 - interplay (01:00)
04 - phallus dei (09:29) remix from the compilation once upon a time (listen directly)
05 - intermission (01:04)
06 - amon düül 2 play (sic!) phallus dei (23:59) from the dvd amon düül 2 play (sic!) phallus dei
 
 

the orange folder:

 
01 - intro (01:00) (listen directly)
02 - phallus dei live 1969 (24:46) / blow up club / munich
03 - phallus dei (09:04) found on the compilation drei jahrzehnte (listen directly)
04 - intermission (00:58)
05 - phallus dei (20:49) remastered version from the 2006 release of phallus dei; some five seconds longer than any other official release
06 - interplay (01:04)
07 - touch my phal (10:17) bonustrack from the 2006 version of phallus dei on revisited records

amon düül 2 - an incoherent compilation of bonustracks, rare mixes and missing links

 

yes, there is a lot of amon-düül-related stuff in this=here blog, and here comes some more. for today i unearthed some 76 minutes of rare recordings by the german proto-post-punk-kraut legend amon düül 2 or amon düül II (and that is not amon dyn or amon düül 3 or amen dull or harm no doll or even amon düül, of course) for your listening pleasure. all of these tracks found their very own=obscure ways out of the düül-archives or were especially recorded by later line=ups of the band for the inclusion either on legal or semilegal or illegal re-releases of their classic albums or are remixes and rerecordings for the sake of some budget-compilations for the sake of it. strange stuff, indeed.
 
 
so here we go=go:
 
01 - jam hai (live in tokyo on the 12th of april 1996; remix for the compilation drei jahrzehnte)  (listen directly)
02 - freak out requiem #2 (taken from the 2000 rerelease of phallus dei on gammarock; probably recorded in 1969)
03 - cosmic insects (taken from the 2005 rerelease of almost alive) (listen directly)
04 - kitchen jam (taken from the 2005 rerelease of almost alive)
05 - goldrush (from the misscredited 2000 version of the utopia album) (listen directly)
06 - müller's frau - jam (found on the 2000 rerelease of wolf city)
07 - i want the sun to shine (taken from the 2006 release of phallus dei on revisited)
08 - touchmaphal (taken from the 2006 release of phallus dei on revisited)
09 - freak out requiem #1 (taken from the 2000 rerelease of phallus dei on gammarock) (listen directly)
10 - eistanz in timbuktu (from the 2005 rererelease of only human. reportedly originally released in 1978, but it was not)
11 - live in obergurgl (taken from the 2005 rerelease of almost alive) (listen directly)
12 - la paloma (unreleased mix from the 1997 compilation flawless) (listen directly)
13 - improvisation on a gulp sonata (taken from the 1998 rerelease of live in london; recorded somewhere in bavaria 1972)
14 -  cymbals in the end (taken from the 2000 rerelease of phallus dei on gammarock)
 
and that's it for now.
