The Famley Guitar Band – Smoke On The Water

The Famley Guitar Band - Smoke On The Waterfront CB012 frontLink

This is the 4th in a series of ‘The Famley Guitar Band’ releases here on the Dreaming-Spires Quadraphonic Archive II. This time ‘Smoke On The Water’ sourced from a Q4. With only eight songs and clocking in at 31:56 you get the impression that the band came in put it down and left. Just like that. I really enjoy these tracks in quad and wish to thank our host OD for allowing me to offer these tidbits to you folks. Just watching the smoke from the sandalwood curl up in the air and make shadow designs on the wall.  Enjoy.   CB

Jim Croce – Photographs & Memories, His Greatest Hits

2 Feb

frontLink

What can be said about Jim Croce other than he is without question the definition of what a singer/songwriter is considered to be. His stories seem timeless yet from their era all in the same motion. I can tell you that all artifacts encountered were well enjoyed with pristine examples being elusive and difficult to locate. This speaks to his universal appeal and enduring popularity. Presented here are fourteen tracks that OD and the Captain hope you enjoy.     CB
