Les Moore " Yesterday" US 1973 Rare Private Loner Folk Acid.
Les Moore’s first and best album dates back to New Orleans, 1973. This low-budget recording hits all the right notes for aficionados of early private-press SSW music and is considered a minor classic of the “loner/downer” genres. Moore’s quavering voice calls to mind Mark Bolan and Devendra Banhart, and his guitar work is subtly virtuosic. Though best known for what Acid Archives calls the “scary jump into the abyss” of the radical cover of The Beatles’ ‘A Day In The Life,’ it’s the original compositions by Moore and Andy and John Davis, full of the kind of raw emotion and sadness totally missing from music today, that make this worth checking out. ‘Now To Begin’ may be the most moving anti-war song ever heard, and ‘Ooh-Pah-Do-Pah-Do’ (included on Numero Group’s great Wayfaring Strangers: Lonesome Heroes comp) may be the most deceptively-titled track you’ll ever hear.

Dennis The Fox. "Mother Tucker" 1975 US Country Folk Rock.
Dennis Caldirola – aka Dennis The Fox – recorded and self-released his Mother Trucker album as a demo in Seattle, Washington in the early 1970s. It’s a demo – one made to attract attention at major record labels – so the sound on this album runs the gamut from hard rock to country rock, from soulful ballads to beat heavy funk. Atop each track Dennis The Fox croons like Elvis. And it works! As funk-expert Dante Carfagna once wrote about “Pile Driver” in an issue of Waxpoetics: ” ‘Pile Driver’s’ drums should come with a rebate against the $1000 you spent on your copy of Salt’s ‘Hung Up.’” A back-handed compliment? We think not. Now-Again is happy to represent both master and publishing for Dennis The Fox’s quirky masterwork

from album "One Man's Queen Is Another Man's Sweat Hog" 1969
Another obscurity courtesy of the Avco Embassy label by a group from New York called the Weight. The group consisted of Brian Cassidy (vocals-bass), Peter Masi (vocals-keyboards-guitar-harmonica), Toni Christmas (guitar-vocals), and Noel Cassidy (drums-washboard-vocals).
The album described in some circles as "progressive psych" starts off with "The Night The Pig Got Loose", featuring a hilarious account of a drug bust told in an Arlo Guthrie sort of way, and then shifts to a ballad musically similar to Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" with the weird title of "Mr.M, Mr.N, and Mr.C (With Help From Mr.D)" (maybe the Mr.D is Dylan they're referring to).
As the album progresses, it has some nice guitar/organ interplay similar in style to the Allman Brothers, so it leans to Southern Rock as much as it does to a progressive style. (Max Collodie).
I'm guessing this one's value is largely a result of it's relative rarity (particularly for a major label release), as opposed to it's musical quality. That's not to say 1970's "One Man's Queen is Another Man's Sweat Hot" is without its share of charm.
Unfortunately there's next to no bibliographical information to be found on the band on the web. One of the few reference indicates they were from New York, which is supported by the fact the album was recorded at the Hempstead, NY based Ultra-Sonic Recording Studios and the fact the liner notes make reference to The Fillmore East. On the other hand their drug bust song 'The Night the Pig Got Loose' makes reference to the Carrabbassett Valley police department. I think Carrabbassett Valley is located in Maine ... Who knows?
Credited with penning all seven tracks, lead singer Peter Masi had an interesting voice. Technically he wasn't the most accomplished performer you've ever heard, but his dry, craggy delivery was well suited for the band's mix of blues-rock and lite psych sounds. At least to my ears nothing here was particularly ground shaking or even artistically original, though the individual performances were quite good throughout with much of the credit due to the band's rhythm section (Brian and Noel Cassidy). It's also one of those albums that seems to get better with repeated spins, tracks like 'I'm Sure We're Gonna Die', 'Overhead Ego' and 'Open Your Gate' revealing some surprisingly complex structures and arrangements that were initially overlooked. Highlights for me included the blazing 'Overhead Ego' and the atypically commercial 'Disillusion # .
