The gold standard for leaning how to sandblast glass. The videos appear dated, but the information is still very current and valuable; it would have saved us lots of money had we learned some of the techniques earlier rather than by trial and error.
A compiled of Premiata Forneria Marconi? But, it is not another ordinary compilation, it is an extract of the first alternative takes of its two first LPs!
Appaloosa’s sole album is a textbook case of baroque folk, which was a term “en vogue” in the late 60’s, and described a folk rock laced with symphonic classical music; and with Al Kooper’s connection (both musical and production-wise) it became one of those influential albums, even if it only stayed four weeks in the US billboard, peaking at 128. Named after the horses and graced with a sober group picture for artwork, the album epitomizes a bit the Boston folk-rock scene, which saw Earth Opera (and its continuation Sea Train) and James Taylor emerge from also. The baroque folk genre can be applied to the Beatles’ Eleanor Rogby as well as the Rolling Stone’s Ruby Tuesday as well to artistes like Nick Drake, Donova, Tim Buckley and John Martyn. All of the 11 tracks are written by singer-guitarist John Parker Compton, whose songwriting evokes Joni Mitchell and later singer- songwriters in the 15 years surrounding this album’s release.
