The story of Crystalaugur is a strange one: the obscure "Native American" band Crystalaugur recorded this album in Singapore between 1972 and 1973, orginally pressing a mere 200 copies for a private label (Warped Rec) and the ridiculously small pressing made the original album an unbelievable rarity. Now, the truth about Crystalagur. Circa 1975,in Singapore, a group of guys, SAS students, Kim Bengs, Bryan Hall, Greg Kemp, Howard Kukla and Guy Rittger, who were members of the band Crystalaugur were trying to figure out what they wanted to do for Interim Semester. To quote Howard Kukla in his interview, "So the band went to the administration with a proposal to make an album (you know, those big round vinyl things most of your parents have in the attic collecting dust). We would write our own music, record it, have it pressed to vinyl and distribute. The result was Terranaut. It is our own work. One of our classmates (Greg Kemp) recorded it on a TEAC or AKAI 4 track reel-to-reel with over-dub of vocals and other sound effects. The artwork was done by the bass player's step-mother. We had the recording pressed by BMI Ltd in Singapore. Only about 200 copies were pressed. We gave them away to friends and family. It was never meant to be a money making venture, just meant to get us through the 2 week semester break. Rumors circulated that the album was actually cut by a group of "Native American” Vietnam vets on R&R in Singapore. No, just a bunch of creative teenagers making music together, for a very memorable year.

Faces (sometimes known as The Faces) are an English rock band formed in 1969 by members of the Small Faces after Steve Marriott left that group to form Humble Pie. The remaining Small Faces - Ronnie Lane (bass guitar), Ian McLagan (keyboards) and Kenney Jones (drums & percussion) - were joined by Ronnie Wood (guitar) and Rod Stewart (lead vocals), both from The Jeff Beck Group, and the new line-up was renamed Faces. Faces released four studio albums and toured regularly until the autumn of 1975, although Stewart simultaneously pursued a solo recording career, and during the band's final year Wood also toured with The Rolling Stones, whom he later joined.

Brainbox was a Dutch rock group from the late 1960s/early 1970s. It was founded in Amsterdam by guitarist Jan Akkerman, drummer Pierre van der Linden  and singer Kazimir Lux (Kaz). Their debut single was "Down Man", which established their progressive blues sound. They had several hit singles in the Netherlands, including "Between Alpha and Omega", "Doomsday Train", Reason to Believe and "Smile". Soon after they released their first album, Akkerman and van der Linden left the group to join Focus. After van der linden and Akkerman left, Brainbox bass player Cyril Havermans  also followed to join Focus, replacing the original Focus bass player. They were replaced by guitarists Herman Meyer and Rudie de Quelijoe and drummer Frans Smit. Meyer was later replaced by John Schuursma. After Kaz Lux left the group in 1971, their popularity waned and they split up in 1972.

Blonde on Blonde was a guitar-led psychedelic rock group from South Wales. The band was originally formed in Newport in 1967 by vocalist/guitarist Ralph Patel, drummer Les Hicks, bassist/organist Richard Hopkins and guitarist/sitar player Gareth Johnson. The band was named after Bob Dylan's 1966 album of the same name. They disbanded in early 1972. Even though they enjoyed strong reviews from music critics and achieved massive exposure playing before gigantic crowds at the 1969  Isle of Wight festival (coincidently headlined by Dylan), they never managed to generate much in the way of sales. In 1968 the quartet left Wales for London. Playing clubs such as London's Middle Earth generated publicity for the band, and Pye Records eventually signed the band. Contrasts, released in 1969 and produced by Barry Murray, has been described as progressive. The album included the Robin Williamson covers "No Sleep Blues" and "I Need My Friend". A personal favorite was Patel's hysterical "Conversationally Making The Grade". Also included was a cover of The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby".

Straight Up is the third album by Badfinger, released on December 13, 1971. It is widely regarded as Badfinger's best album, spawning two Top 20 singles in the U.S. and being commercially successful in its own right. However, because the album was released on the then faltering Apple Records label, it has been unavailable for most of the period since its initial release. Recordings for Straight Up began in early 1971 under the direction of producer Geoff Emerick, who produced the bulk of Badfinger's preceding album No Dice. Although these early recordings were completed and both the album and a single, "Name of the Game", were ready to be released, Apple Records co-president George Harrison  decided the album could be improved under his personal direction, which led the single to be canceled. Harrison recorded a couple of new tracks with the band in the summer of 1971, as well as re-recording a couple of the original tracks. He can be heard playing a slide-guitar duet with Pete Ham on the song "Day After Day", with Leon Russell  featured on piano.

It's hard to believe this is the only Amen Corner CD in print, given the fact that they scored a remarkable six British hit singles in a short period during the '60s, and that frontman Andy Fairweather-Low, apart from having a solo career with singles, went on to work with talents like Eric Clapton. But this was where it all started, in songs like "Gin House," soaked in blues and soul, very raw and emotional. It was, perhaps, a better indicator of the heart of the band than its other hits, such as the cover of American Breed's "Bend Me, Shape Me." Fairweather-Low's distinctive, occasionally strangled-sounding voice was the band's hallmark, but its musical abilities shouldn't be forgotten. In retrospect, it was a powerful soul band who adapted its sound, but never lost the essence of what it was, even on something like "(If Paradise Is) Half as Nice." Most people will be coming here for the hits, and they're all here. But there's also something more than nostalgia. There's a very good band, too. (Chris Nickson, AMG)
