Guitar Boogie is a compilation blues album with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, with additional credit to The Allstars. Most songs on this album were written by Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck or Jimmy Page. Guitar Boogie was released as a part of a British Archives series and is rare in that form. The album was re-released in the US in 1977 by Pickwick Records. Only two of the guitarists appear on any given track. Jeff Beck does not appear on any of the Page/Clapton numbers. Similarly, Clapton doesn't appear on the Allstars tracks. Jeff Beck's two tracks were recorded in 1963 and can be found on several different compilations. This album was compiled by Richard Robinson.

The Animals were an English music group of the 1960s formed in Newcastle upon Tyne during the early part of the decade, and later relocated to London. Known for their gritty, bluesy sound and deep-voiced frontman Eric Burdon – as exemplified by their number one signature song "The House of the Rising Sun" as well as by hits such as "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" and "It's My Life" – the band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. They became known in the U.S. as part of the British Invasion. This is an Australian release of Animals greatest hits. 01 - San Franciscan Nights 02 - Ring Of Fire 03 - I Put A Spell On You 04 - Mama Told Me Not To Come 05 - Good Times 06 - Help Me Girl 07 - Sky Pilot 08 - Inside Looking Out 09 - River Deep Mountain High 10 - When I Was Young 11 - Monterrey 12 - Sweet Little Sixteen 13 - Gin House Blues 14 - Don't Bring Me Down LINK
Long Island guitarist Faine Jade began performing and recording as a member of the Rustics in the mid-'60s, with basic, energetic, angst-ridden material that differed little from literally thousands of other like-minded garage bands across the country. After a single with the Rustics in 1966, Jade recorded a 45 under his own name in 1967, "It Ain't True," which was rescued from obscurity on the Pebbles, Vol. 8 compilation. His solo LP on the tiny R.S.V.P. label in 1968, Introspection: A Faine Jade Recital, showed a quantum leap in songwriting with reflective, enigmatic lyrics and a swirling but disciplined melodicism. It has ranked among the most coveted collectibles of the psychedelic era. In late '67, Faine recorded demo versions of Cold Winter Sun and I Lived Tomorrow Yesterday, backed by the Bohemian Vendetta, which led to the deal with New York independent label for the Introspection album. The band also backed him on the album, along with Bruce Brandt and Randy Skrha (who filled in for Jeff Jade - who was in Vietnam at the time). Bruce also co-wrote two of the songs on the album. The recent CD reissue, includes a linking piano section Piano Interlude omitted by the record company at the time because of its uncommercial nature, as well as three album demos, and a nineties tribute to John Lennon. Where Introspection captures the arguably naive atmosphere of '67, and naked openness that the use of psychedelics represented, Vietnam polarised political opinion, which Faine articulated on a 1969 recording USA Now before moving to Florida and working with the pre-Allmans outfit Second Coming. Later he rejoined Nick Manzi and Bruce Brandt as Dust Bowl Clementine who released one album, Patchin' Up (Roulette 1970), and opened a studio in Long Island.

Gracious was a British progressive rock band which existed from 1967 to 1971, and released two albums, Gracious! (1970, Vertigo/Capitol) and This Is... (1972, Philips). The roots of the band lay in the long friendship between singer Paul 'Sandy' Davis and guitarist Alan Cowderoy, who met while at the same school in Esher, Surrey, between 1959 and 1965. It was a Catholic school, so when they decided to form a band together, they chose the most controversial name two twelve-year-old boys could come up with - Satan's Disciples! Inevitably, when performing at the school concerts, they had to change the name to The Disciples. Davis was the drummer and vocalist, and Cowderoy played lead; two other school friends played bass and rhythm. In 1968, Martin Kitcat and Mark Laird joined on Hohner electric piano and bass respectively. Davis was still drumming as well as singing, but Robert Lipson, who played in a rival Esher band, agreed to join, allowing Davis to take the front of stage for the first time. The band's early sound was influenced by Cream and the British blues movement, and one of their first professional recordings was a cover of a John Mayall song. At one point the group was rehearsing in a building below Eric Clapton's London flat, and one day Clapton popped in during a rehearsal and ended up jamming with them. More pivotal, however, was interest from Pete Townshend which led to a support slot for The Who on a tour in 1968.

A New York's east coast acid blues american band. Musically it's rather slow, pedestrian blues, rather than psychedelic. They do not appear to have released any 45s. Among the musicians included were Bobby Notkoff (also in Rockets and Crazy Horse) and Chris Osborne (who played with David Peel and Yoko Ono). They also have one cut, "Barnyard Blues” on "Magic Carpet Ride” (LP), "Sixties Archive Vol. 8” (CD) and "Lysergic Soap” (LP) compilations. 01 - Barnyard Blues 02 - On My Way Down 03 - My Very Own Sweatheart 04 - T.C.

Julian Jay Savarin is a British musician, songwriter, poet and science fiction author. Born in Dominica, Savarin moved to Great Britain with his family in 1962. He recorded a solo album, Waiters On The Dance (1971) and was the leader and main songwriter in A Time Before This (1970, but some sources claim 1969, 1971 and 1973), which was the only album recorded by his group, Julian's Treatment. Julian's Treatment is yet another forgotten and obscure gem of progressive and psychedelic rock. A Time Before This, released in 1970, was the one and only album by this band. Unsurprising, the album is a sci-fi concept album. Musically, it's late '60s sounding psychedelic with progressive rock with great spacy organ and a cosmic feel to the whole album. Great female vocals as well with the occasional spoken dialog.
