Josefus 1970

Howdey folks time for some great catchy Heavy psychedelic rock with a southern Texas vibe for you all. Josefus Dead Man fron 1969 is a cult classic nowdays and has it's well over due recognition but this 2nd album is still a bit overlooked. I originally too thought it was a bit lightweight ? But comparing it to Dead Man, most things are. No this is still much heavier than most period hardrock and the songwriting here is far superior. This album could have made Josefus a big household name in the heavier southern Heavy rock scene in the 1970's had it got better distribution and promotion. Put it this way there are far inferior southern rock bands having cult status that can't hold a candle to this album. Enough said Rock on folks

Endless Boogie - Focus Level (2008)

Here is a great underground band that has gone under the  radar of many of you. Endless Boogie is the band of underground record collector Paul Major.. a mover n shaker who has brought many of your fave rare records to wider attention back in the day before internet (respect to him for that alone!). Endless Boogie has released 5 or 6 albums ranging from TGS style longjam psych with German influences to downright long jam hardrock/boogie like on this album from 2008. You can notice different underground references in the music and one song here: "The Manly Vibe" sounds like Don Geres movie soundtrack Werevolves on wheels.. Pauls slightly Beefheartsque vocals might annoy you at first but the music will make you forget that fast. Enjoy this kick ass jam and check out their latest album Long Island. It's their hardest n rawest release to date.  Now go smoke figs in the back yard with Top Dollar.....
