Hanging Out Introspection Relaxation. Patten tore off spiky, spindly leads with dexterity; bassist Keylor and drummer Whaley constituted one hell of a powerhouse rhythm section; and the Circle were fronted by the soulful, full-blooded warbling of Yoder, who was also not averse to writhing around the stage floor or coaxing ear-splitting electronic noises from his Gibson.
Sensing the constrictive nature of their immediate environs, the Circle frequently journeyed south to San Francisco. There, their tight and dynamic stage show quickly got them booked at the ballrooms, and the combo would regularly blow their more illustrious contemporaries off the boards.
And it crystallises that brief but magic moment when punk fury took on an experimental zeal and mutated into something quite breathtaking indeed. The personnel may have graduated to projects more feted - Whaley to Blue Cheer, Yoder and Patten to Kak - but the Oxford Circle was its constituents' finest hour. In addition to the incredible live material, both sides of the crazy World United single are included, as well as a further two tracks from an aborted demo session held in Hollywood and featuring Mac 'Dr John' Rebennack on organ Bio LP.

Fred Neil March 16, — July 7, was an American blues and folk singer and songwriter, whose career developed in the s and early s, getting away from the music scene since then until he died. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, but raised in St. Some of Neil's early compositions were recorded by Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison; he played as a session guitarist on "Dream Lover," the hit by Bobby Darin, and he even became demo singer for an Elvis movie soundtrack session at the end of the 50's.
By then, Neil recorded six singles for different labels, mostly rockabilly-pop oriented, at the time he keep on composing at the Brill Building for other artists. Although it wasn't untilwhen Nilsson recorded a cover version of Neil's song "Everybody's Talkin'," which became a huge hit a year later when it was featured in the film Midnight Cowboy.
So why is Neil a hero to David Crosby? Because back when Crosby was an aspiring folkie who just arrived in New York, Neil bothered to take an interest in him, just as he did for the young Bob Dylan, who backed Neil on harmonica at the Cafe Wha?
Neil was an accomplished professional musician atypically inclined to a very modest frugality. Perhaps because his grandmother influence, Fred sang on a gospel church band when he still was a child, acquiring a black music background that'd be always at the bottom of his music.
Consequently his five albums are remarkable for their singularly unpretentious authenticity. His combination of baritone vocal and string guitar stunning strumming remains unusual, and his combo recordings provide his shimmering melodies with muscular grooves.
But his exemplarity is that of resolving the apparent opposition between aesthetic integrity and commercial value almost entirely in favor of aesthetic integrity, which gives all of his recordings a unique historical resonance.
His approach to melody was more in the manner of Cole Porter and to rhythm very much in the school of Ray Charles. His first LP, "Tear Down The Walls", was taped as duo with his Coconut Grove friend Vince Martin, showing an exquisite control of folk-blues repertoire, with some raga-like touches here and there, that advanced forthcoming foreigner manners, when he'd be joined on many LP sets during and by The Seventh Sons, a mostly instrumental Village trio, leaded by his colleague Buzzy Linhart on guitar and vibes.
Disgracefully, any recording was saved of Neil backed by the Linhart crew. Always on his way, since then Neil was progressively disappearing from the studio recordings and live shows. About 70's -all still unissued- recordings, a rare session was taped around with John Cipollina, one of the guitarists of Valenti's founded band Quicksilver Messenger Service. Aside, Ric O'Barry's claimed at an interview for the unofficial -if most comprehensive- online website fredneil.
Meanwhile the second album was more fully arranged and, surely, over-produced, Fred accompanied by NY-sessionists pro band Stuff, and some Fred ol' friends like Slick Aguilar. All the songs performed by Neil for these recordings were covers of songwriters like Bobby Charles -from among whose authorship Fred recorded three songs-"Hey Joe"'s writer Billy Roberts, John Braheny and Bobby Ingram.
About live dates, Fred also started a long retirement from them after playing with Stephen Stills at the Madison Square Garden in NYC inperforming only after that at gigs for the Dolphin Project Revue in Coconut Grove, although in he'd reach to play in Tokyo during another benefit show for the Revue.
A fundamental live date in July during The Montreux Jazz Festival, a show attempted to be released as a live LP by his former manager Mike Lang -one of the organizers of the Woodstock Festival- and 70's Grove scene habitual, Fred being joined on this occasion by maybe his most permanent musicians ever: John Sebastian on harp, Harvey Brooks on bass and Pete Childs on guitar.
His last official show was at the Coconut Grove Playhouse inperforming with Buzzy Linhart, who played vibes. Anyway, unofficially Neil joined some friend in the Florida Keys and around the Woodstock area upstate NYcoffee-house audiences not knowing who was he really, another detail that increased his mysterious personality until the very end.
Album) East Coast. Fronted by San Franciscan poet David Meltzer, the Serpent Power was a sunshiny folk-rock group, whose songs were musical translations of Meltzer's poetry. They were first noticed by Ed Denton, manager of Country Joe and the Fish, when he saw them perform at their first-ever gig, a benefit for the Telegraph Neighborhood Center.
This was in November of -- Denton recommended them to Vanguard Records Country Joe's label and by the band was signed and had released their first and only album. The Serpent Power was formed by Meltzer and his wife Tina who sang LP lead and harmony vocalsand also included Denny Ellis and David Stenson on lead guitar and bass, respectively, both of whom had gotten their start with San Francisco folksters the Grass Roots. The band became a full rock outfit with the inclusion of John Payne on organ and Clark Coolidge on drums.
My Favorite Blogs When Moby Grape severed ties to Katz, he laid claim to their name, forcing Tripsichord Music Box to play a series of live dates LP the Moby Grape aegis — the deception ultimately prompted McKinney to quit the band inwith guitarist Bill Carr signing on in his place.
Around this same time, Zandonatti's high school friend Ron McNeeley also began sitting in on vocals, and after a single, "Times and Seasons," Tripsichord dropped the "Music Box" from their name in time to cut their sole full-length, a self-titled cult classic issued in Their dark yet ethereal music found few takers, however, and the band relocated to Utah, splitting when Zandonatti and McNeely joined the Sons of Mosiah, a Mormon musical troupe managed by future LP.
