Joplin In Concert (recorded 1968 & 1970, released 1972)

janis joplin all is loneliness in concert

The Big Brother half admittedly does include little-heard cuts that you might find refreshing, like the powerful “Down On Me” and trippy “All Is Loneliness” (both from the group’s rare debut record)

Love – A House Is Not A Motel / 1967

Love a house is not a motel

For those who’ve never heard Love, it’s like a Moody Blues rocker crossed with Cream guitar heroics, but it certainly gives the guitar players a chance to really stretch out on the blazing coda

Gabor Szabo – The Sorcerer / 1967

gabor szabo mizrab

A truly great live album on the Impulse label. Gabor’s guitar sound is unique and to my mind this album showcases his talent very well.

Tame Impala – Innerspeaker / 2010

tame impala it's not meant to be

First track It Is Not Meant To Be rides in on a wave of third-eye guitar jangle and magic carpet bass, the band playing with the sort of empathic intelligence that’s made Dungen a wonder of the retro-rocking world.

Yes – Big Generator / 1987

yes final eyes

‘Final Eyes’ is very much in the traditional Yes mould with lots of acoustic guitar, dreamy instrumental passages and an angelic vocal display from Jon Anderson.

THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN – 1968

the crazy world of arthur brown

This album was released in 1968 and was a major hit in the UK and US. The first side is a suite of songs that are concerned with the general theme of ‘fire'; they are totally unique and portray Arthur’s incredible voice at its very best.
