Not a single I particular care for, but certainly a significatnt one, as it contains a non album release, Mrs Man, and is the rarest of their three single releases. Their album 'Love & Poetry' is considered a psychedelic great. Mrs Man is anything but psychedelic, instead more a country, laid-back effort. I include it here for interest only.
Released 29th August 1969.

Terribly sorry for the lack of activity this month and the continued lack of music links to files prior to July. This will be corrected shortly, I assure you.
Here for you delectation, a little know ballad by Jason Cord on Chapter One, 1969.

The Selofane. A little known pop group who released one other (more interesting) single the same year. Heavily orchestrated, and clearly of its time. Cupids Inspiration comes to mind.
I believe that they headed the Spanish expo in 1968. If anyone can verify this, do please leave a message.
NB: Regarding the technical problem with dead links, as soon as I return to England (2 weeks or so), I will have the problem rectified. Until then, please accept my apologies.

It has been drawn to my attention that the music cannot be listened to owing to technical difficulties. On account of this, and in my absence from England, I am testing a new method for conveying music. Please accept my apologies for the disruptions.
Below is Barry Mason's 'Collection of Recollections' released in Deram in 1966.
Might I extend my gratitude to Expo67, whose blog is most interesting, and led me to trying out DivShare.

FLASH (1967/8) A splendid instrumental with piano, hammond, stomping beat and fuzz guitar.
Only one more by this outfit. I'll have it put up some time.
As promised. I could only locate my Japanese pressing of this, the second of Tinkerbell's Fairydust's three releases. In Japan, this was a hit for quite a while, whilst it sank without trace in England.
Note the misspelling 'Tinkabell's Fairydust'.

These might be of interest to some of you. During the period 1978 to 1982 I toured the many East Anglian (Albion) fairs with Nick Turner and a band going by the name (at the time) of 'Thandoy', later to become 'Karmakanix'. The upshot is that I have come across many monochrome photographs from this period taken with my trusty OM1. Alongside the usual music, I'll put some up from time to time. Might jog some memories.
I should add: double clicking on a photograph will enlarge the image.

Lazy Day / In my Magic Garden.
Three single releases, and an album which never made a release. I believe that a few test pressings were made, and stock copies exist, less than ten.
2010 is a more interesting composition which I will put up at a later date

The most obscure release by this prolific song writer, on the MCA label, released 17th May 1968, and as far as I can see, uncatalogued.
'I bring the Sun' will not disappoint. In the same box are all of his other releases during the 1960s, which I might put up later.
The only release by this obscure band, who were born out of 'Our Plastic Dream'. Vocalist 'Vincent Edwards' released several solo singles in the late sixties, including 'Run to the Sun' on the CBS label.
This release, a demo on United Artists released 18th October 1968, complete with press release snippet.
A splendid band that was once very popular on the British club scene, and which cut a few eccentric tracks, notably 'Gone is the sad man' and 'Baked jam roll in your eye'. This track is a more upbeat pop number, but still has that certain sound unique to the late sixties England.
Girl don't make me wait:-

Their only single, 'Jump & Dance' (this group owned boutiques in Carnaby Street) ,did not chart but is now renowned as a classic composition of its era. A signed copy...
I was kindly sent a link to another blog featuring the Carnaby, which contains some stunning photographs of the band circa 1965.
