On the 17th of October 2005 the first in a legendary series of podcasts compiled by DinsdaleP was broadcast. Every week or so , a new edition followed. They continued for 114 episodes until December the 11th 2007, an astonishing amount of material in such a short space of time and very hard work for the author who shared these with us. At the time they were unique in both their content and production...in fact they still are... and although many have tried to emulate them none have succeeded. Dinsdale has very kindly made the original lossless tapes available to Nowhere Man Records, who are privileged to present them in their entirety, along with one or two surprises. This seems to be the last Nowhere Man Records release, I'll post podcasts 49 to 114 in the next weeks.

Sir Lord Baltimore are a pioneering American heavy metal band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 1968 by lead vocalist/drummer John Garner, guitarist Louis Dambra, and bass player Gary Justin. They are notable for the fact that a 1971 review of their debut record, Kingdom Come, contained the first documented use of the term "heavy metal" to refer to a style of music. Additionally, Sir Lord Baltimore featured a drumming lead singer, traditionally a rarity in rock and metal music. The group have been called "the godfathers of stoner rock." Sir Lord Baltimore is the second studio album by the band, released on Mercury Records in 1971. It was re-issued on PolyGram in 1994, and on Red Fox in 2003. This album marked a change in direction, with the frenetic pace of the earlier Kingdom Come's giving way to a slower-tempo. Sir Lord Baltimore expanded to a four-piece for this album, with Louis Dambra's brother, Joey Dambra, joining as a second guitarist. Sir Lord Baltimore contains the band's only officially released live recording, "Where Are We Going." 01 - Chicago Lives 02 - Loe And Behold 03 - Woman Tamer 04 - Caesar Lxxi 05 - Man From Manhattan 06 - Where Are We Going LINK
SOD was a bluesy Rock outfit from LA with a lot of beards and bad 70s long hair. To top it all off, their percussion player Jay York was a professional wrestler from the NWA! They put out two albums, and I think this is the better of the two, although the other one gets mentioned because David Axelrod did some production on it. The band gets right down to business with Too Loose To Get Tight Pt. 1 with a nice long drum break intro that leads into some funky Rock. Pt. 2 of the song is even better since it’s mostly an instrumental. Things I Wanna Say is in a similar vein with some nice horn work. In fact, the whole album is a pretty good listen. (S-M67) 01 - Too Loose To Get Tight-Pt.1 02 - Too Loose To Get Tight-Pt.2 03 - Things I Wanna Say 04 - Love Sweet Love 05 - Here 06 - Ev'ryday 07 - La Brea Tar Pit Blues 08 - I Don't Want Ya 09 - Makin' It LINK
This superb San Franciscan power trio only recorded one album, which stands as one of the best of Its kind. Rooted in blues, its snappy, self-penned songs display a clear acid rock influence, whilst avoiding excess of any sort. Though it was released in Europe and even Australia in 1970, it sank without trace, spelling the end for the band, though their reputation has been growing ever since. Gary Wagner, guitar, piano, lead vocals, John Haden, bass and Steve Adams, drums. 01 - My Eyes Are Getting Heavy 02 - Dynaflow 03 - Ain?t Feeling Too Bad 04 - Silver Ghost 05 - Skid Row Runner 06 - Lucanna 07 - We?re Gonna Burn Together 08 - Somebody Got The Blues 09 - How Can You Win 10 - Take Me With You When You Go LINK
Polyphony’s Without Introduction is renowned for being a highly-collectable and listenable album of psych/prog jams reminiscent of some of the British or Italian psych monsters from the early ‘70s. Released in 1971 on the Eleventh Hours label, this hard progressive rock outfit from Virginia features some stunning guitar and keyboard work, as well as a percussionist at home on congas, timbales and just about everything hittable along with surrealistic lyrics and off center vocals making it a jaw dropping album from one of the US's earliest progressive rock bands. The band is definitely influenced by early UK exponents of prog including Keith Emerson, Steve Howe and Peter Gabriel. Without Introduction, was originally released in 1971, and reissued in 2005. Only four songs, but three of 7, 13 and 15 minutes. 01 - Juggernaut 02 - 40 Second Thing In 39 Seconds 03 - Ariels Flight 04 - Crimson Dagger LINK
Riff Raff was a UK progressive rock band formed by keyboardist Tommy Eyre in 1972.The band was a continuation on the back of drummers (and Harrow School of Art friends) Rod Coombes (Juicy Lucy Strawbs and Stealers Wheel) and Joe Czarnecki's (Plainsmen) aka Joe Peter's project originally called 'Crikey' started in 1969 and completed in 1970 when Rod had to accept growing tour commitments with Juicy Lucy.These sessions comprise half of the Riff Raff album 'Outside Looking In' in which Rod wrote half the songs.Rod says that "the concept of the band was based around two drummers and afro-jazz (Rod and Joe were great fans of Ginger Baker and Miles Davis) and fusion(this album was one of the first true fusion albums to be recorded).I had worked with Roger with singer Paul Williams (Juicy Lucy)and Tommy previously and clearly we all enjoyed doing what we do best-playing freely". Riff Raff later went on to release two albums to lukewarm response; however, their use of jazz and hard-edged rock garnered them a large underground following. Riff Raff also released a classic single 'Copper Kettle' (Dylan track) which displayed Tommy Eyre's arrangement expertise. Although not typical of Riff Raff's repertoire, the band were unlucky not to get some chart coverage from the single. Bud Beadle - saxophone, Rod Coombes - Drums percussion and composer, Joe Czarnecki aka Joe Peters - Drums percussion, Aurero De Souza - drums, Tommy Eyre - keyboards, vocals, Pete Kirtley - guitar, vocals, Roger Sutton - bass guitar, vocals, Steve Gregory - woodwind, Joanna Newman - vocals and Joe O'Donnell - viola.

Moby Grape '69 is the rock band Moby Grape's third album and first after the departure of Skip Spence. Spence nonetheless is heard on one song, "Seeing", presumably from the Wow/Grape Jam sessions, and positioned as the final song on Moby Grape '69. As Peter Lewis describes the album, "We made Moby Grape '69, in an attempt to rebound from the Wow album, which was over-produced. And it's a cool album. Although we could have rehearsed it a little more, we still believed in it. But I think we were waiting for Skippy to come back, and he never did." 01 - Ohh Mama Ohh 02 - Ain't That A Shame 03 - I Am Not Willing 04 - It's A Beautiful Day Today 05 - Hoochie 06 - Trucking Man 07 - If You Can't Learn From My Mistakes 08 - Captain Nemo 09 - What's To Choose 10 - Going Nowhere 11 - Seeing 12 - Soul Stew 13 - If You Can't Learn From My Mistakes (demo) 14 - You Can Do Anything (demo) 15 - It's A Beutiful Day Today (demo) 16 - What's To Choose (demo) 17 - Big (demo) 18 - Hoochie (demo) LINK
Kensington Market was a Toronto, Canada based rock band, active from 1967-1969. Named after a downtown Toronto neighbourhood, it was formed by singer/songwriter and guitarist Keith McKie, formely with The Vendettas, with guitarist and pianist Eugene Martynec from Bobby Kris & The Imperials. The original line up was completed with former Vendettas' bass player Alex Darou and drummer Jimmy Watson. Former Luke & The Apostles frontman, singer/songwriter Luke Gibson was added later in 1967. In 1969, keyboardist John Mills-Cockell joined, and their follow-up, 'Aardvark', was released, produced by Felix Pappalardi (Cream's producer), followed by their second US tour. However, this wasn't done in enough time to save the splintering band who split that same year. 01 - Help Me 02 - If It Is Love 03 - I Know You 04 - The Thinker 05 - Half-Closed Eyes 06 - Said I Could Be Happy 07 - Ciao 08 - Ow-Ing Man 09 - Side I Am 10 - Think About The Times 11 - Have You Come To See 12 - Cartoon 13 - Dorian LINK
Paper Lace was a Nottingham based pop group, formed in 1969. They are known to Americans as a one-hit wonder; however, in the UK they were a "classic two and a half hit wonder". The core of the band originally formed in 1967 as Music Box, but changed their name to Paper Lace when Phil Wright joined as drummer and lead singer. The band took their name from lace products created from a special grade of high quality paper manufactured in Nottingham, their hometown. Paper Lace was one of hundreds of pop bands in England looking for the big time while slogging their way through small club gigs and brief television appearances. A season at Tiffany's, a Rochdale club, led to more television appearances, but a passport to the charts did not arrive until a 1974 victory on Opportunity Knocks, the ITV talent contest series. They were the most successful band Nottingham ever produced, and were invited to perform on the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen Mother. First Edition is the debut album.

A Michigan power trio whose album is powerful and inventive - one of the best hard rock albums on the label. Showcasing a line up consisting of drummer John Bredeau, singer/guitarst Paul Frank and singer/bassist Michael Urso, the band only managed to release one instantly obscure album, but what an LP! Produced by Dan Moore and Buzz Clifford, 1971's Head Over Heels is simply great. Loud, tough, yet surprisingly accessible, material such as Road Runner and In My Woman showcased the trio's knack for melodic, but crunching guitar rock. Frank and Urso had attractive voices and as we said before, they sure could generate some sound. Among the few missteps were some out of kilter harmony vocals (Question) and the bland power ballad Children Of The Mist (which was almost redeemed by Frank's nice guitar solo). Elsewhere, recorded at Detroit's Eastowne, an extended cover of Willie Dixon's Red Rooster and the Franks-penned Circles were in-concert efforts that aptly showcased the band's impressive live chops. Frank and Urso subsequently reappeared with the band Fresh Start. Urso was also a late-inning member of Detroit's Rare Earth (along with the Scorpion guitarist Ray Monette), playing on several of their albums in the mid-70s.(CGR) 01 - Road Runner 02 - Right Away 03 - Red Rooster 04 - Children Of The Mist 05 - Question 06 - Tired And Blue Land 07 - In My Woman 08 - Circles LINK
Obscure Canadian rock band Mantis, from Montreal, released this eponymous debut album in 1973. It brings together a rather edgy collection of pop/rock, giving it an interesting synth sound in part.
