Long May You Run is an album released in September 1976 by The Stills-Young Band, a collaboration between Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The album peaked at #26 on the Billboard 200, was certified gold in the U.S. by the RIAA and remains the sole studio release by The Stills-Young Band. The Stills-Young Band recorded the album and began a tour in 1976 prior to the album's release but Young dropped out of the tour when he grew bored with the project, forcing Stills to complete the concert tour solo. The band was together from July through October 1976. Outside of Stills and Young, the other members of the group came from Stills' solo band. The album stemmed from a desire by both Young and Stills to pick up where they left off with their Buffalo Springfield-era guitar explorations. After a while, David Crosby and Graham Nash became involved with the project, and Long May You Run briefly became a CSNY album. However, Crosby and Nash eventually departed the project to focus on the material for what would become the duo's 1976 album, Whistling Down the Wire, and Young and Stills would remove Crosby and Nash's vocal harmonies and other contributions from the master tapes. 01 - Long May You Run 02 - Make Love To You 03 - Midnight On The Bay 04 - Black Coral 05 - Ocean Girl 06 - Let It Shine 07 - 12-8 Blues (All The Same) 08 - Fontainebleau 09 - Guardian Angel LINK
These 25 tracks have been culled from a host of mid-'60s artists on the U.K.-based Decca Records label as part of their critically and enthusiastically lauded "Decca Originals" series. Each thematic entry gathers hard-to-locate tunes by a variety of lesser-known acts. The Beat Scene concentrates on groups stylistically akin to the early to mid '60s British Invasion beat bands. However, unlike the Beatles, the Dave Clark Five, or any of their other internationally renowned contemporaries, many of the acts featured here had comparatively nominal, if any, success outside of Europe.(AMG) 01 - The Poets - I Love Her Still 02 - The Game - Gonna Get Me Someone 03 - Thee - Each & Every Day 04 - The Mighty Avengers - (Walking Thru' The) Sleepy City 05 - Shel Naylor - It's Gonna Happen Soon 06 - Joe Cocker - I'll Cry Instead 07 - Beat Boys - Third Time Lucky 08 - The Mark Four - Hurt Me If You Will 09 - Sandra Barry & The Boys - Really Gonna Shake 10 - Lulu & The Luvvers - Surprise Surprise 11 - The Mojos - Everything's Alright 12 - The Beat Chics - Now I Know 13 - Pete Best Four - I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door 14 - The Warriors - Don't Make Me Blue 15 - The Marauders - That's What I Want 16 - The Brooks - Once In A While 17 - Rick & Sandy - Lost My Girl 18 - Unit 4+2 - I Was Only Playing Games 19 - Tierneys Fugitives - Did You Want To Run Away 20 - The Mockingbirds - One By One 21 - The Rockin' Berries - Itty Bitty Pieces 22 - The Knack - Who'll Be The Next In Line 23 - Brian Poole & The Tremeloes - Keep On Dancing 24 - The Hi Numbers - Heart Of Stone 25 - The Andrew Oldham Orchestra - Da Doo Ron Ron LINK
Keyboard player and vocalist John Morgan was a Graham Bond afficianado who turned toward psychedelia as the 1960's wore on. Billed originally as The Spirit of John Morgan, the band was successful enough to get booked into the Marquee and other top clubs, and cut three albums. Their self-titled debut into 1969 was followed by two more LPs in 1970 and 1972 (credited simply to John Morgan) for the Carnaby label. He also cut a single for British RCA in the early 1970's. Good psychedelic blues rock album. 01 - I Want You 02 - Honky Tonk Train Blues 03 - She's Gone 04 - Orpheus And None For Ye 05 - The Yodel 06 - Shout For Joy 07 - Ride On (A Train For All Reasons) 08 - Yorkshire Blues 09 - The Floating Opera Show LINK
The Royal Guardsmen are a rock band from Ocala, Florida, a sextet originally composed of Bill Balough (bass), John Burdett (drums), Chris Nunley (vocals), Tom Richards (guitar), Billy Taylor (organ), and Barry Winslow (vocals/guitar). Rick Cosner replaced John Burdett on drums in 2006. The current band performs regularly around the United States. Originally known as the Posmen, the band adopted their anglophile moniker during the British Invasion, led by The Beatles and other British artists. They achieved fame with their second (vinyl) single, "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron" in 1966, which was also the title of their first album the same year. It soon reached #2 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, remaining in the bestsellers for 12 weeks, with an eventual one million sale in early 1967 and a gold record from the R.I.A.A. in February 1967. Snoopy, the Red Baron, and aircraft became a recurring theme in their songs, though they did have some chart singles without those themes, including "Any Wednesday", "I Say Love", and the Top 40 hit "Baby Let's Wait", a re-release of their first single. The original group split in 1969.

At Your Birthday Party is the third studio album by Steppenwolf, released in 1969 on the label ABC Dunhill Records. It was the first Steppenwolf album to feature bass player Nick St. Nicholas. Although it was less critically acclaimed than their successful first two albums, Steppenwolf and Steppenwolf the Second, it contained a few well-known hits, such as "It's Never Too Late" and "Jupiter's Child", as well as the colossal "Rock Me". Still it would be their last top ten album with their last top ten hit. Even then, though, the album showcases Steppenwolf at their peak, coming out of, but not yet completely abandoning, the psychedelia of Steppenwolf the Second and stepping into the distinctive hard rock of their later releases, but with less weight here than later, meaning it slides faster and more furiously.
