Polyrock - Self Titled

First album from these guys - not as good as the second (but don't let this put you off).  Must also get around to converting my cassette of their EP.  Completists out there - please be patient!

Polyrock - Changing Hearts

Fantastic underrated album from this NY band (produced by Philip Glass - that's weird!).  The pop sound chugs along and is absolutely infectious.  One of my favourite albums of all time.  Highly recommended and will demand repeated plays.  Hey - has this ever been given a CD release?  Metinks not.

Martha's Vineyard - Self Titled Cassette EP

First release from this band - much more of a folky feel.  Still can't believe that this band sunk without a trace.  The frustration must have led to them giving their first album one of the strangest (and best) names of all time.

Peak - Ebondazzar

Simply put - this album has killer guitar throughout.  The main guy behind this is Kevin Peak and was possibly bought on release by one or two people.  I picked it out of the el cheapo bin (nice cover) and have played it to death since.  No CD release of course, but deserves a solid release with re-mastering and all that.

Herbie Mann - Stone Flute

Pretty good album with many memories (possibly chemically induced).  No idea if it's yet appeared on CD but this jazz/rock release has some groovy little moments.  Herbie Mann himself is 'the man' when it comes to all things flute which makes one now think - who else out there has released as many flute based albums as this guy?  Not something that can be readily googled but you would be hard pressed to find something more worthy than this with that unique whammo factor.  If you like this, check out his 'Push Push' album in Mr Weird and Wacky.  Great LP but what about the artwork!!
