Goldsboro was born in Marianna, Florida. In 1941, Goldsboro's family moved 35 miles north from Marianna to Dothan, Alabama. He graduated from Dothan High School in 1959, and later enrolled at Auburn University. Goldsboro left college after his second year to pursue a musical career. He played guitar for Roy Orbison from 1962 to 1964, while releasing a few unsuccessful singles. Goldsboro's solo career picked up steam with the Top Ten hit "See the Funny Little Clown." The self-penned single reached No. 9 on the U.S. national charts in early 1964. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. It was to be the first of a string of similar awards. Goldsboro would go on to have 11 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and 12 on the country chart. It's Too Late from 1966 is the fifth album released by Goldsboro.

Kevin Ayers is an English songwriter and was a major influential force in the English psychedelic movement. BBC DJ John Peel wrote in his autobiography that "Kevin Ayers' talent is so acute you could perform major eye surgery with it." Ayers was a founding member of the pioneering psychedelic band Soft Machine in the late 1960s, and was closely associated with the Canterbury scene. He has recorded a series of albums as a solo artist and over the years has worked with Brian Eno, Syd Barrett, John Cale, Elton John, Robert Wyatt, Andy Summers, Mike Oldfield, Nico and Ollie Halsall, among others. After living for many years in DeiĆ , Majorca, he returned to the United Kingdom in the mid 1990s. He now lives in the south of France. His most recent album was Unfairground, which was recorded in New York City, Tucson, Arizona, and London in 2006. Joy of a Toy is the debut solo album of Kevin Ayers, a founding member of Soft Machine. Its whimsical and unique vision is a clear indication of how Soft Machine might have progressed under Ayers' tenure. He is accompanied on the LP by his Soft Machine colleagues Robert Wyatt, Mike Ratledge and Hugh Hopper.

In a move guaranteed to cause perpetual confusion among discographers and '60s collectors, singer/songwriter Arthur Lee Harper billed himself simply as Arthur (no last name) on his first album, 1968's Dreams and Images, and then as Arthur Lee Harper on his second and last, 1969's Love Is the Revolution. It's the same guy who did both records, and he most assuredly has no connection with the famous Arthur Lee who led the group Love. Arthur, or Arthur Lee Harper, was as mild-mannered a folk-rock singer/songwriter as there was in the late '60s, singing sad songs that emanated fearful uncertainty, as well as slight airs of self-pity and disengagement. His thin voice was so high it almost moved into a range associated with woman singers rather than male ones; if you're looking for a reference point from the period who's almost as obscure, there's Bert Sommer, who had a similarly nearly girlish voice. In some respects the records were much lower-volume, folkier variants of the orchestrated Baroque pop of the early Bee Gees, though of not nearly the same quality, with a reticence that made the late-'60s Bee Gees sound gutsy and forceful. Dreams and Images got at least a little distribution, as it was on Lee Hazlewood's LHI label, but Love Is the Revolution got even less of a hearing, as it was privately pressed. (RU)

Wakeman became an active session musician. In June 1969, he played Mellotron on David Bowie's single "Space Oddity" for a session fee of £9. He went on to play piano for Bowie's "Life on Mars?", "Changes" and "Oh! You Pretty Things" in April 1971 and "Absolute Beginners" in 1985. He also played the piano intro on the Cat Stevens' hit "Morning Has Broken". In 1971 he acquired an early Minimoog synthesiser, purchasing it at half price from actor Jack Wild who believed that it was defective because it only played one note at a time. Piano Vibrations, though publicited in its re-release as the first studio album by English progressive rock keyboardist Rick Wakeman, it's not considered a Wakeman's album. He just played as a session musician and didn't compose any of the tracks. The album was released in 1971 on Polydor, after Wakeman had signed on to A&M Records. The album developed from Wakeman's time as a session musician. A&M Records had signed Wakeman on as the Strawbs' keyboardist at the time of the release. Piano Vibrations, when it has been reviewed, has been described as "slightly cheesy", especially in light of Wakeman's later involvement in progressive rock.

Trans World Pacific Studios was located on Third Street and it was here for the first time that The Doors had ever recorded in a studio. Aura Records had seen that the previous single that Rick & The Ravens had released was not doing so well, so rather than going to the expense of pressing another single and watching it most likely fail, the record company had decided to give The Doors free studio time. The Doors spent three hours in the studio and recorded six demos. The owner for Trans World Pacific Studios was Dick Bock who also produced the demo tapes for The Doors. The demo tapes were recorded before Robby Krieger joined the band. At that time, the group included Jim Morrison on vocals, Ray Manzarek on vocals/piano, John Densmore on drums, Rick Manzarek on guitar, Jim Manzarek on harmonica and an unknown girl that was hired from a local group to play bass. The only copies of these demo recordings were originally owned by World Pacific Studios, John Densmore and Billy James who at the time was a representative for Columbia Records.(Bootlegzone). Hyacinth House is not from this session.

The Fabulous Rhinestones were an R&B-based band formed in San Francisco in 1971 by ex-Illinois Speed Press guitarist/singer Kal David and ex-Electric Flag (and Bob Dylan, Al Kooper, and Miles Davis) bassist Harvey Brooks. They moved to Woodstock, NY, where they played with members of the Band and some of their own fellow Chicago bluesmen, including Paul Butterfield, and were signed by producer Michael Lang -- the co-producer of the Woodstock festival -- to his own Just Sunshine label. The group cut three LPs over the next three years, all of which received critical raves without selling in huge numbers -- they also got considerable exposure playing on the same bill with the Allman Brothers, Stevie Wonder, and the Doobie Brothers, but their most visible gig was probably playing a 1971 antiwar rally in New York with John Lennon and Yoko Ono. They split up in the mid-'70s and David later played with Etta James, Al Kooper, and Johnny Rivers.(AMG) Harvey Brooks -Bass, Guitar, Kal David -Guitar, Vocal, Marty Grebb -Keyboards, Bass, Vocal, Saxophones, With; Greg Tohmas -Drums, Dave Sanborn -Alto Saxophone, Reinol Andino -Congas, Barry Rogers -Trombone, Randy Brecker -Trumpet, Flugelhorn and Michael Brecker -Tenor Saxophone.

The Jaggerz are a pop/rock band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, often considered a one-hit wonder because their only major success was the single "The Rapper", written by Donnie Iris. Released on the Kama Sutra label in late December 1969, "The Rapper", 1969 got to #2 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart for two weeks in March 1970, and sold over one million copies with the gold record awarded by the R.I.A.A..The band's name derives from the Pittsburgh English slang term, "jagger bush," meaning a thorny bush. They were managed by The Skyliners manager, Joe Rock. We Went to Different Schools Together is the second album by The Jaggerz, released in 1970.

Five Finger Discount, Live in London January 1st 1972. Track 3 maybe from a 80's concert (some says that the date is 1972 but I think that this concert has been recorded in the early 80's because it sounds too "clean" for an early 70's show and the song Five Finger Discount was written and released in 1981 - from Bootlegzone).

The Outlaws were an English instrumental band that recorded in the early 1960s. One time members included Ritchie Blackmore, Chas Hodges, Bobby Graham, Ken Lundgren, Mick Underwood, Reg Hawkins, Billy Kuy and others. Their name was originally conceived by Joe Meek, who needed a backing group for Mike Berry's "Set Me Free" in 1960. After that recording, they continued being one of the house bands of his recording studio at 304 Holloway Road, London. As such, they were used for recordings, demos and auditions. Many of their songs were written by Meek and credited to his pseudonym, Robert Duke. They appeared as themselves in the 1963 British film, Live It Up!. "This was a legendary album of Shadows-like instrumentals from the writer of the Tornados' 1962 No. 1 "Telstar", Joe Meek. Hard to get even in 1961 when it was released, and now long deleted on CD too, this disc contains an exceptionally good set from the period when the equally legendary producer Joe Meek was at his best." (J.Watson) Tracks 13-17 only in the 1991 CD as bonus.

The Pink Fairies were an English rock band active in the London (Ladbroke Grove) underground and psychedelic scene of the early 1970s. They promoted free music, drug taking and anarchy and often performed impromptu gigs and other agitprop stunts, such as playing for free outside the gates at the Bath and Isle of Wight pop festivals in 1970, as well as appearing at Phun City, the second Glastonbury and many other free festivals including Windsor and Trentishoe. The group was formed when the three musicians from The Deviants (Paul Rudolph, Duncan Sanderson, and Russell Hunter), having sacked their singer and leader Mick Farren, returned from a disastrous tour of the West Coast of the United States and hooked up with Twink, former drummer of The Pretty Things. Paul Rudolph, guitar and vocals, Trevor Burton, guitar, Duncan Sanderson, bass and Russell Hunter, drums. Live performances for BBC broadcast.
