Ghengis Smith, Lonesome Cowboy Burt, and more re-ups

Somewhere on the Web, recently, I saw a post that mentioned somebody's two favourite albums weren't available on CD. I coulnda believe it, so I checked, and it's true!

So here, without further adon't, are said albums.

Also a few more requested re-ups.

Come Out Fighting Ghengis Smith - Roy Harper (1967)

Apparently this is Roy Harper's least favourite of all his albums - don't know why, I think it's one of his best. Mind you, it was also one of the first of his that I owned (I saw it 2nd hand in a local WHSmith the day I bought Flat Baroque), around the same time that I bought Love Chronicles (and that *is* available).

  1. Freak Sweet
  2. You Don't Need Money
  3. Ageing Raver
  4. In a Beautiful Rambling Mess
  5. All You Need Is
  6. What You Have
  7. Circle
  8. Highgate Cemetery
  9. Come Out Fighting Genghis Smith


200 Motels - Frank Zappa (1970)

Well you'll either like this or you won't I guess. For full info about it go here.

No idea why it's not available - it's *far* from his worst album. It's also far from his best, though.

This is particularly relevant now - following an email conversation with Barry Dransfield and a subsequent Web trawl for Dave Bulmer I'm going to post all the Leader and Trailer stuff I can and hope that somehow he's convinced to re-release them and let the artists have their just desserts. Sadly, for Tony Rose it's too late, and Nic Jones could probably have used some royalties...

Thank you so much for re-uploading "Love Smashed on a Rock".
I had it on a cassette tape years and years ago but I lost it and since then I have always been willing to listen to it again.
I didn’t think there would be a day when I could listen to the it again.

Aha now that I have snaffled the Harper album I think it only fair to let you know that it is available for sale along with an interesting little blurb by Roy regarding his real views on the thing:

All best

Roy Harper. Forgotten genius? I think so.

Thanks for the Harper. It might be a minority view, but I've always preferred the earlier, more concise Roy. Thanks for making COFGS availbale again.

Thanks for the Martyn Bates album, much appreciated - I do have a copy on record somewhere but have not been able to locate it so it's great to be able to hear it again. Martyn also released an interesting solo CD on the US based NDN records which you can find here -

Great blog and lots to discover.

Roy Harper has just updated his website. Not only are most of his albums still available there on CD, but he now has legal downloads of a couple that are long out of print ("Poems, Prayers...")
