Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

Kama Sutra/Buddah Records label...who'd of thunk the same label that gave us bubblegum would have produced this? (I know there's a lot of great music on this label...)

So what's the music like, tommygun?

Music Note Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

.......it's good old Rock n' Roll.
In fact Dust made only 2 records but I know only the 1971 debut album.
Give me some tips about other music made on the Kama Sutra Buddah Records label so I can check it out and maybe I even remember something I knew.......

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

BSNPubs is a great resource, here's the link it is:

http://www.bsnpubs.com/buddah/buddahstory.html

Of course wikipedia is another source, separate entries:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddah_Records

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kama_Sutra_Records

Most noteworthy to me are The Stories (with Michael Brown, ex-Left Banke leader), Steve Martin (not the comedian but another Left Banker), Captain Beefheart (!?), Flamin' Groovies, NRBQ, and Sopwith Camel, The Lovin' Spoonful...well most all are represented on the Buddah Box:

http://www.amazon.com/Buddah-Box-Var...p_tracks_all_1

I noticed this review mentioned Dust in passing, perhaps this group (Pentagram) is up your alley:

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

.......thanks for the links.
I thought that you might have something in particular up your sleeve but thanks anyway.

Here something else I've found again which was kinda forgotten.
It's "Brainticket - Cottonwoodhill 1971" and "Brainticket - Psychonaut 1972".

On the original cover of "Brainticket - Cottonwoodhill 1971" it said:

Warning: Listen to this record only once a day or you will get brain damage.

Great stuff...!!!...

Cottonwoodhill


Psychonaut

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

Here's the detailed Kama Sutra discography:

http://www.bsnpubs.com/buddah/kamasutra.html

It shows another Dust album, 1972's Hard Attack. Looks like it has a great cover, too...Vikings a la Frank Frazetta.



Those are some pretty wild covers above!

Music Note Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

.......yeah "Dust - Hard Attack 1972"
I didn't know this one before but I've listen to it and must say it's also not bad.

Here are 2 quotes about Brainticket by guys from the states:

***** Considered one of the most psychedelic albums ever released, 'Cottonwoodhill' is brilliant with amazing sound effects, propulsive keyboards(on the dominating namesake track 'brainticket pt.1 and 2),special vocal effects, great guitar work and a very demented monologue that puts you at the heart of the psychedelic experience. This album, recorded in 1971, accomplishes where others have tried and failed ('Anthem of The Sun','After Bathing At Baxter's')i.e. to record an acid trip. Whether by improved production techniques or more inspired performance, this is psychedelic music at its best! "*****

***** An absolute must-have two-fer CD release by the Swiss space {tripping} rockers none other than Brainticket. Although some have been led to believe this band was a krautrock ensemble from Germany, they're actually Swiss. Here you get two priceless pieces of early seventies progressive space rock, Brainticket's first two efforts, 'Cottonwood Hill' {'71} - see my review and 'Psychonaut' {'72} where I've always dug a bit more so than their first album. Tunes off this 2nd release that make the two-for a 'to die for' disc are the ethnic folk-like "Radagacuca", the rocking "Watchin' You" and "Coco Mary". Founder Joel Vandroogenbroeck's organ playing is Brainticket's main asset. 110% essential. ******

Just listen to the 1st song "Black Sand" of "Cottonwoodhill" if you got a chance.

"Psychonaut" is also great and more mellow than "Cottonwoodhill".

Both albums are Acid Rock of it's finest.......

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

I remember Dust, H.S. buddy of mine was into them and bought their LP's.

I was walking past the mental hospital the other day, and all the patients were shouting, "13...13....13...13."

The fence was too high to see over, but I saw a little gap in the planks, so I walked over and looked through to see what was going on.

Someone poked me in the eye with a stick.

Then they all started shouting. "14...14...14...14....".

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

Some good stuff. I picked up the first Dust LP decades ago in a cut out bin. Awhile back i was able to get copies of Braintickets "Cottonwoodhill" and "Psychonaut" albums. Also have a copy of their 1980 album "Adventure" but don't like it near as much as the two mentioned above.

Music Note Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

.......great, that some of guys are familiar with this far out stuff.

Here another recommendation:

It's "Janus - Gravedigger 1972"

The trip is the track "Gravedigger" which was the whole B side on vinyl and on the A side it was the 1st track "Red Sun" which is also a great track.

I definitely wouldn't want to miss out on this one.......


Janus - Gravedigger 1972

Probably everybody knows this one but I think it's still worth to mention it anyway.

The album "Babe Ruth - First Base 1972".......

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

.......yes, I also think that were pretty good.
Is it possible that on their 2nd album "Hard Attack" the band had different or more members?
On the 1st album it was a 3 man band but the 2nd one sounds different to me.......

The second album had Fred Singer inputting some piano and organ on some songs. I don't know if he became a group member or was a studio musician. I would guess studio musician.

Dust was...

Richie Wise - vocalist/guitarist

Kenny Aaronson - Bass and other

Marc Bell - Drums

After Dust Kenny Aaronson joined Stories later playing in a wide variety of touring bands with big name artist and did a lot of session work. He was a member of Hagar Schon Aaronson Shrieve with Sammy Hagar, guitarist Neal Schon and drummer Michael Shrieve.

Marc Bell later played with Richard Hell & the Voidoids and still later, the Ramones under the name Marky Ramone.

Richie Wise went into production work.

Re: Rock Rarity Recommendation

There was a nice Buddah Box put out a few years ago that's worth getting.
