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.

Band formed in Texas, which launched this unique work. A powerful blues-rock, very contagious and kicking. The album ends up sounding a bit generic, without much to add, but the quality of the material is not futile, the vocals are good, drums and bass sound with good expression.

Combining the deadpan wit of the Bonzo Dog Band and the social-conscious lyricism of the Kinks, Dead Sea Fruit helped to bring the British Invasion of the 1960s to France. Formed in 1966, the group spent three years based in Paris thrilling French audiences with their hook-laden songs. Although all but two members relocated to Dakar, Senegal, electric bassist/guitarist/vocalist Arthur Marsh, who had replaced founding member Christopher Hall in early 1967, returned to England after three months when club owners demanded that they stick to cover tunes. Dead Sea Fruit reached their apex in 1967, when their tongue-in-jowl single, "Lulu, Put Another Record On," reached the top position on the British music charts. Their self-titled album was released the same year. (AMG).

"This 1971 release on the Angelus label was limited to only 200 copies, so originals are worth a small fortune. Fraction, with vocalist Jim Beach bearing an uncanny vocal resemblance to Jim Morrision (although he was singing on Sunset Strip long before Morrison took to the stage), were often compared favourably with the Doors, although their quasi-religious message would probably not have found favour with the recently-departed Morrison. Indeed, this rather fine album was once famously described as the album the Doors probably wished they had made!. Underpinned by guitarist Don Swanson's superb Ritchie Blackmorestyle guitar work, this is an album full of beautiful psychedelia, acid and hard rock, at once emblematic of the era but not dated by its association. The five original compositions are all of the highest quality and the contribution of Beach's Morrison-esque vocals place a stamp of originality on the recording that endures from beginning to end." 01 - Sanc-Divided 02 - Come Out Of Her 03 - Eye Of The Hurricane 04 - Sons Come To Birth 05 - This Bird 06 - Sky High LINK
An obscure hard rock group from Ohio which may interest some collectors. In 1975, their drummer produced a flexi-disc by Pandora, another hard rock outfit. Cleveland's enigmatic Granicus recorded just one eponymous LP before fading into rock & roll oblivion, but it's an absolute gem! Quietly released by RCA in 1973, Granicus is truly an album out of time -- especially its own -- which perhaps explains its eventual commercial failure. Years on, the record acts as a veritable time capsule, taking the listener back to that tenuous transition point where late-'60s progressive rock and experimental psychedelia finally gave way once and for all to what is now considered the classic '70s hard rock sound. 01 - You're In America 02 - Bad Talk 03 - Twilight 04 - Prayer 05 - Cleveland Ohio 06 - Nightmare 07 - When You're Movin' 08 - Paradise LINK

Armaggedon was a late sixties german hard/heavy blues rock band, Frank Diez (guitar,vocals), Manfred Galatik (keyboards, bass), Michael Nürnberg (bass, guitar) and Jürgen Lorenzen (drums). Their self-titled album is a heavy progressive masterpiece with excellent, Hendrix-influenced guitar work and vocals by Frank Diez. Armageddon was the start of his long and impressive career. Their album had six tracks, and two of them were cover versions. Most impressive was the 10 minute version of Jeff Beck Group's "Rice Pudding". This track had some of the greatest heavy guitar riffing to appear on a German record.(SW) 01 - Round 02 - Open 03 - Oh Man 04 - Rice Pudding 05 - People Talking 06 - Better By You, Better Than Me LINK
British progresive rock band, Ted Bartlett / vocals, Dave Cook / bass, Rodney Harrison / guitar, vocals, Peter Orgil / violin, James Smith / vocals and Ian Snow / drums. This album, which is a cross between Fantasy and The Moody Blues (circa 1971), is worth checking out. Asgard came from the West Country and their first 45 was produced by Tony Clarke. They were also one of the first bands signed by Gerry Hoff, head of The Moody Blues' Threshold label. Rod Harrison had previously played in Please and Bulldog Bread, whilst James Smith and Ian Snow went on to Stonehouse. 01 - In the Realm of Asgaerd 02 - Friends 03 - Town Crier 04 - Austin Osman Spare 05 - Children of a New Born Age 06 - Time 07 - Lorraine 08 - Starquest LINK
Produced by Joel Sill, Atlee were a good hard-rock quartet from California. All the tracks on their sole album were penned by Yeager and demonstrate the band's skill and their sense of humour: Jesus People, Dirty Sheets, Dirty Old Man, Let's Make Love are just some highlights of a very consistent album. Still working with Michael Stevens, Atlee Yeager would go on to issue another album on Chelsea in 1973. Don Francisco, drums, vocals, Bruce Schaffer, Keyboards, Vocals, Michael Stevens, guitar, vocals and Atlee Yager, lead vocals, bass
