Keith Moon
The Who are an English rock band that formed in 1964. The primary lineup consisted of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon. The band reached international success, became known for their award-winning live performances, are regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s and 70s, and recognized as one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Keith Moon - Two Sides Of the Moon (1975)
Released and dropped in 1975. This is the one and only solo album of The Who's drummer Keth Moon with a little (understatement) help from his friends; Harry Nilsson, Ringo Starr, Flo & Eddie, David Bowie, Joe Walsh, Ronnie Wood, Ricky Nelson, Steve Cropper, John Sebastan, Dick Dale, Spencer Davis, Jim Keltner, Bobby Keys, Klauss Vorman and various members of Jo Jo Gunne. So should you expect a great album? Well, Keith chose to sing instead using the album as a chance to showcase his legendary drumming skill and I don't think he could win "idols" with that voice but it's a fun album and if you like the Ringo Starr albums you'll probably like this one too.

The Beau Brummels - (1965)

I carry out the request

The Beau Brummels was a successful 1960s American rock band, formed in San Francisco in 1963. Their sound was influenced by the Beatles and other British bands of the era, as well as by such American groups as the Kingston Trio and the Everly Brothers.
The band took its name from a 19th Century English dandy, Beau Brummell, as a way of identifying with the British music scene. Additionally, band members figured that since everyone was looking for and at Beatles records, having a name that naturally followed Beatles alphabetically would be a shrewd move. In addition, the band took to wearing British-influenced mod clothes. As a result of their sound and look they were often mistaken for an English band, especially in their first few years. However, as their music progressed they mixed the British sound with American folk and country music and created a distincly American sound.
The Beau Brummels had three Top 40 hit singles: "Laugh Laugh", "Just A Little" and "You Tell Me Why".[1] "Just a Little" was the biggest hit of the three, spending 9 weeks in the Top 40 and reaching #8 on Billboard, while "Laugh, Laugh" hit #15, and "You Tell Me Why" peaked at #38.[3]
The Beau Brummels recorded six studio albums as well, with Triangle and Bradley's Barn receiving significant critical acclaim.
"Laugh, Laugh" is listed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 most influential songs that shaped rock and roll, and was also featured in the 1989 John Candy film Uncle Buck. On "The Flintstones", in the episode based on the "Shindig" TV series, there was a version of the "The Beau Brummelstones" singing their hit "Laugh Laugh." They were also featured in the movie Village of the Giants which was later featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000. The Beau Brummels are considered by some to be the first folk rock group (although the Byrds were formed - and recorded - earlier) and they influenced numerous other acts in the genre, particularly later San Francisco groups including Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead.

P.J. Orion & The Magnates

320\60 Mb
So-named because they were sons in affluent Greek shipping families, P.j. Orion & The Magnates put out a self-released garage rock LP while attending prep school in Massachusetts, like quite a few bands at such institutions did in the 1960s. The self-titled album consists entirely of covers, mostly of British Invasion and folk-rock hits, all done rawly but competently in folk-rock-heavy arrangements. Though very rare in its original pressing, the record became fairly well-known among '60s garage rock collectors after getting reissued in the mid-'80s. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide
"Local prep-garage LP with a folkrock sound a la Ha'Pennys but slightly more pro-sounding, adds some early 60s and UK R'n'B covers for good measure. Consistent in its $15 jangly Searchers/early Byrds sound, even on Stones and Animals numbers, with a folkrocked "Love Minus Zero" perhaps the most original thing on board. Nice live feel with appealingly loose drummer and amateur vocals. No selfpenned material and kind of short with only nine tracks, even as most of them cross the 3-minute mark. Recorded in New York. The band members belonged to wealthy Greek shipping families (hence "Magnates") and were students at the Groton prep school, which makes their tough greaseball stance on the supercool cover seem a wishful Spring break fantasy. [PL]"
Of the numerous so-called "prep rock" garage albums to be released on small or private labels by prep school students in the mid-1960s, the self-titled one by P.J. Orion & the Magnates is among the better ones. Not that it's great, and it's certainly not very original, as all of the nine tracks are covers of pretty well-known songs by the Rolling Stones, Animals, Barry McGuire, Drifters, Tommy Roe, Bob Dylan, the Searchers, the Byrds, and Them. And all of them are done in a garage-like Byrds style, with the kind of jangly electric guitar arrangements in which the Byrds specialized, though these aren't as sophisticated. For all that, though, these are pretty well executed, and the group must have been a good choice to play at high school dances back in the day, even if no one in their right mind would compare these to the originals. The version of Roe's "Sheila" is pretty cool, actually, adding a little garage oomph not present in the hit version. Cool, too, is the cover, in which they pose with their instruments and sunglasses in the middle of deserted railroad tracks. That cover, and the decision by Eva Records to make this one of the earlier of the albums it reissued in the mid-1980s -- at a time when Eva was one of the very few companies reissuing such rarities -- probably accounts for its relatively high visibility among '60s collectors as such things go. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

The Kingsmen - Louie Louie - The Very Best Of

Full artwork
The Kingsmen are a 1959s garage rock band from Portland, Oregon. They are best known for their 1963 recording of Richard Berry's "Louie, Louie", which held the #2 spot on the Billboard charts for six weeks. The single has become an enduring classic , NEXT
The Kingsmen formed in Portland, Oregon in 1959. As young teenagers, they played high school parties, teen dances, supermarket openings, and fashion shows. Like many fledgling bands of the day, they copied what they heard on the radio: Elvis, The Ventures, Country music, R&B, and the burgeoning Northwest Sound. They became one of the most popular bands in the Portland area,NEXT - The Kingsmen
Rock 'n' roll frightened adults in the early '60s, and "Louie Louie" became especially suspect because The Kingsmen's recording was mumbly (some say because singer Jack Ely didn't know all the words and other because of his position at the mic during the recording), and virtually indecipherable to parents' non-rock ears. Rumors of obscene lyrics and crumpled notes passed between teenagers professing to contain the 'real lyrics' fueled a public controversy around the Richard Berry penned song. This all served, of couse, to make the song more popular than ever!- NEXT

The Fourmost- The Best Of

Mp3 224\121 Mb
The Fourmost were one of the best Merseyside groups of the early 60s and might have had an even better chart record than they had if they hadn't suffered more than their share of bad luck. This splendid set reminds us just how outstanding they were. There are 33 tracks here and, considering that they had only 6 chart entries (which are all included here, with the respective B sides), one might have expected to have to make allowance for some makeweight items. But this isn't the case at all--virtually everything of every style is of high quality in all departments. Almost all the tracks are the originals but one or two later ones sound like re-recordings. This is a fine memento of the group's varied repertoire and acts as a worthy memorial to two of the group who are no longer with us, Mike Millward and Brian O'Hara.
In the words of the overworked title, all the hits and more.This is the definitive collection, if you like the Fourmost you are bound to enjoy this album.. All the regulars are there,Hello Little girl,Alittle lovin,I'm in love,baby I need your lovin and the rest. Also the slightly bizarre,Aunty Maggies remedy, Girls, girls, girls. But this is the Fourmost, their original stage routine consisted of a number of comedy songs. A Fourmost fan? Then this is for you, and its long overdue

The Robbs - The Robbs (1967)

Mp3 256\50 Mb

The Robbs were a 1960s pop/rock band from Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. They are best known for being the house band on Dick Clark's mid-1960s show Where The Action Is. To trivia buffs, they are also known for placing the most singles on Billboard magazine's "Bubbling Under" charts (five as The Robbs, plus a final single as Cherokee) without ever once crossing over into the Hot 100.
The Robbs consisted of brothers David Donaldson (aka Dee Robb), Robert Donaldson (aka Bruce Robb), and George Donaldson (aka Joe Robb), along with unrelated family frend Craig Kampf (aka Craig Robb). The band was founded in the early 1960s without Kampf, and recorded as "Dee Robb", "Robby & the Robins", and "Dee Robb & the Robins" before settling on "The Robbs" and hiring Kampf in 1965. Musically, the Robbs were noted for their use of harmony vocals, and instrumentation that was inspired by folk-rock, bubblegum music, and jangle pop. NEXT :

If you're gonna buy a remains cd, make this one it, the band even says, this album captured their live sound to the best degree possible without it actually being a live show. recorded at 10 am after a night playing live in boston, the boys were still pretty cranked up, and rip through the set with a punk rock roar that sounds ridiculously ahead of its time when considering these guys opened for the beatles! i've never really liked hang on sloopy by the mccoys, but barry and co give it a hellraising treatment that'll have you hitting your head on the ceiling with all out insainity... then you get all day and all of the night... a classic run through, but then a great original "why do i cry" which rocks really hard... "johnny b. goode" is the finest version i've heard this side of the original, and "i'm a man" may be the best song on here... 5 minutes of utter punk rock wham bam thank you mam... utterly insane... i can't believe these guys never made it out of boston! what a shame.
1. Hang On Sloppy
2. All Day And All Of The Night
3. Why Do I Cry
4. Like A Rolling Stone
5. Johnny B. Goode
6. Gonna Move
7. I'm A Man
8. Walking' The Dog
9. Ain't That Her
10. When I Want To Know
11. Why Do I Cry
12. Say You're Sorry
13. All Good Things
This disc really gives a vivid, unfaded snapshot of a '60s band at the top of its game, playing as if their lives depended on it even though they were wiped out from the night before. With all the covers mixed in with the originals, it also gives a solid sense of what their nightclub playlists were like. If you love historical context as much you love as great rock'n'roll, you really do get the best of both worlds here
Most of the tracks are covers, including The McCoys' "Hang On Sloopy" (one can only wonder what The McCoys did with this live), The Kinks' "All Day And All of The Night" (with Tashian adding a leering "baaaby" on to the end of several lines, not to mention his own version of Dave Davies' frantic guitar solo), Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone", Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode", Bo Diddley's "I'm a Man", Rufus Thomas' "Walkin the Dog", plus several of Barry Tashian's originals, including two versions of "Why Do I Cry", "Ain't That Her" (with amazing live harmonies) and "Why Do I Cry".
The chatter in between tracks displays an incredible looseness in the band. Considering this was an audition, and they were really hoping to get off Epic, you'd think they'd be a bit more nervous. Also, considering they were in the middle of a club run, playing gigs that lasted until 3 or 4am, and were in the studio at 10 or 11am to record this set, they sound really fresh.

The Blue Things - Listen & See (1966)

Mp3 256\81 Mb
Along with the Remains, the Blue Things are serious contenders for the title of the Great Lost Mid-'60s American Band. The Kansas group was extremely popular in the Midwest and Texas, but remained unknown on a national level, despite a deal with RCA. Piloted by the songwriting of singer and guitarist Val Stecklein, the group often sounded like a cross between the Byrds and the Beau Brummels with their melodic, energetic, guitar-oriented folk-rock and haunting harmonies. The group's sole album (Listen & See, 1966) and several singles chart a rapid growth from British Invasion-like material with a heavy Searchers and Buddy Holly influence to full-blown psychedelic efforts with careening guitars, organ, and backward effects. Quite innovative for the time, these 1966 psychedelic singles met with no more than regional success. The group's impetus was derailed by the departure of Stecklein at the end of 1966, although they struggled on for a bit. Stecklein went to California and recorded a disappointing MOR folk album for Dot in the late '60s that reprised some of his Blue Things songs.(AllMusic)
