The James Solberg Band 1996 One Of These Days

Review by Alex Henderson

If you owned a blues club and insisted that you would only book hardcore blues purists, you would miss out on a lot of talented people. That's because so many of the artists playing the blues circuit in the 21st century have other influences -- perhaps rock, perhaps soul, perhaps jazz. All of those things have influenced James Solberg, who is essentially a bluesman but is far from a purist. Those who expect everything a bluesman records to have 12 bars are bound to find One of These Days disappointing, but more eclectic and broad-minded listeners will find a lot to admire about this German release, which finds the charming singer embracing everything from moody, Bobby "Blue" Bland-ish soul-blues ("One of These Days," "Everyday") to exuberant blues-rock ("One False Move," "Too Damn Much Lovin'").

Solberg's performance of "Do You Call That a Buddy?" recalls the blues-jazz of the 1930s and 1940s, and his own "Litehouse Keeper" is a Southern soul item that takes us back to a time when Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Rufus Thomas, and Wilson Pickett were all over R&B radio. Overall, One of These Days is quite solid. The only disappointing track is a surprisingly lackluster version of Sir Mack Rice's "Cheaper to Keep Her," which was a major hit for the late soulster Johnnie Taylor (as opposed to bluesman Little Johnny Taylor) in the early 1970s. Solberg should have soared on this track, but, for whatever reason, he drops the ball. Most of the time, however, One of These Days turns out to be a rewarding and welcome addition to Solberg's catalog.

Review by Ann Wickstrom

Bugs Henderson splashes a warning on the inside sleeve for anyone who might not know the drill: "This is not elevator music. Crank it up!" There are no overdubs, no re-takes, and no fancy tricks on this live recording, captured on five consecutive nights in November 1994 in various clubs in Colorado. If you've never seen Henderson live, this is as close as one will likely come to hearing what he is capable of when he begins playing his trademark red Paul Reed Smith guitar. Accompanied only by his son Buddy Henderson on drums and Keith Jones on bass, the artist gives you fast instrumentals, slow blues, heavy rock, slow rock, boogies, and everything in between. There's amplifier hum and feedback, whistling fans, and songs more than ten minutes long.

One of just two covers, "Johnny B. Goode" is unlike any version heard before. It starts out with a bass solo, and then Henderson comes in with flying guitar effects. Three minutes pass before he even begins to sing. On "You Can't Sit Down," Henderson goes all out, demonstrating why he is the guitar hero he has become to followers. The center section of the song, a full three minutes, is all Henderson; a true guitar solo -- he goes it alone, no bass or drums. He throws in more heroics and licks than you can shake a whammy bar at. The Knack's "My Sharona," the Beatles' "I Feel Fine," Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," and "Peter Gunn" all figure into the equation. In his customary audio liner notes, Henderson admits that mistakes were recorded (after one of them he even steps to the mic and says, "Sorry"), but insists that after listening to over 15 hours of tapes, he chose the songs that reflect the feeling, fire, and passion of everyone's playing instead of those on which his own playing comes as close to perfect as possible.

Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird 2009 Partisans & Parasites




A Detroit area native, Daniel Kahn attended the University of Michigan where he studied acting, directing, playwriting and poetry. After finishing his studies he lived, played music, recorded, acted, directed plays and composed theatre music in New Orleans, Detroit, New York and Ann Arbor. He has received awards for his playwriting, poetry, acting, and composing.

In summer 2005 Daniel moved to Berlin, and has became an integral part of the international yiddish and klezmer scene, playing in different groups and musical projects. He soon formed his own band, featuring a rotating roster of some of Berlin and New York's best young players.

"The Painted Bird" concocts a mixture of Klezmer, radical Yiddish song, political cabaret and punk folk, kept together by Kahn's amazing abilities as a songwriter, translator and performer; telling stories of outrageous incidents, poetically dark, tragically humorous and politically incorrect.

"The Painted Bird" has brought "Yiddish Punk Cabaret" to rock clubs, theatres, festivals and shtetls, from Berlin to Boston, Leningrad to Louisiana. The band has been called "The Yiddish Pogues," and Kahn was once described as "someone between Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits - but yiddish." On tour premiering his new album of old and original songs in Yiddish, English, German, and Russian, "Partisans & Parasites," Daniel Kahn challenges the borders between radical & traditional, lyrical & political, east & west, folk & punk, mama loshn & loshn hora.

Ronnie Earl & Duke Robillard 2005 The Duke Meets The Earl





Genre: Blues
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:12:10
Size: 132,03 MB

Review by Steve Leggett

The Duke Meets the Earl seems like an obvious album, pairing two of New England's finest contemporary blues guitarists, Duke Robillard and Ronnie Earl, who both share the same sort of hard, clear tone in their playing (Earl actually replaced Robillard in Roomful of Blues when the latter left the group for a solo career). For Earl, who has been working in a kind of jazz blues hybrid style in recent years, it marks a return to straight blues, and with guests like Jimmy McGriff and Mighty Sam McClain aboard on select tracks, 'The Duke Meets the Earl' has the feel of a super session.

Throughout, Earl's guitar is featured in the left channel and Robillard's in the right, leading to some wonderful guitar dialogues, particularly on an epic, nearly 16-minute-long version of Walter Price's "My Tears." Another extended workout occurs on "A Soul That's Been Abused," an Earl original, which features McClain on vocals and stretches out to just over 13 minutes. McGriff brings his Hammond B-3 magic to two cuts, Eddie Taylor's "Lookin' for Trouble" and B.B. King's "I Need You So Bad," while the B-3 part on "A Soul That's Been Abused" is handled by Dave Limina. Other highlights include covers of T-Bone Walker's "Two Bones and a Pick," Magic Sam's "What Have I Done Wrong," and Earl's smooth, clear slide style on another original, "Zeb's Thing." With only eight tracks, but clocking in at over 70 minutes, The Duke Meets the Earl gives these two fine guitarists plenty of room to talk to each other, and the result is a classy set of no-frills contemporary blues, with just the slightest hint of jazz to keep it all smooth.

01 - West Side Shuffle 07:47

02 - Two Bones & A Pick 08:09

03 - My Tears 16:00

More original and out-on-a-limb than most textbook-blues players, he co-wrote "Baboom/Mama Said" on the Vaughan Brothers' Family Style and played guitar and piano on tour with Jimmie Vaughan following the latter's Strange Pleasure.

Jane biography

Playing a melodious synthesis of symphonic hard rock that has occcasionally been compared to Pink Floyd, Hanover Krautrockers Jane can trace their origins back to the late sixties psychedelic band Justice Of Peace. Releasing a single Save Me/War, the band featured future Jane members Peter Panka on vocals, Klaus Hess on bass and Werner Nadolny on saxophone. By late 1970 Justice Of Peace had dissolved and regrouped as Jane with Panka on vocals and drums, Hess switching to guitar and Nadolny assuming keyboards. Charly Maucher joined on bass and power vocalist Berndt Pulst completed the band in April 1971 and their first LP "Together" was released in the spring of 1972. Singing in broken English, which helped create passionate effects, a heavy expressive bluesy sound emerged with blistering Les Paul solos and slabs of Hammond organ backdrops that was consolidated by Peter Panka's almost hypnotic oscillating drum beats that would charcterize Jane's music for almost 40 years. "Together" was warmly recieved by the German music press including Sound magazine who had declared Pulst it's vocalist of the year for 1971.

The first of an almost continual succesion of lineup changes occurred later that year with Pulst departing and Maucher bowing out for health reasons. Former Justice Of Peace guitarist Wolfgang Krantz joined on bass and guitar with Panka and Hess sharing the vocals which displayed even more lethargic and stoned out sonic timbres. Applying their proven formula, their 1973 follow up "Here We Are" was somewhat more harmonious with the the addition of synthesizers that provided spacier atmospheres and produced a fan favourite in the form of the sombre rock ballad "Out In The Rain" . Shortly after the album's release Nadolny left to form a new band Lady with the recovered Maucher returning on bass and vocals. Jane's third endeavour, simply entitled Jane III, was a scorching guitar blowout and with Krantz on second guitar. The void left by departing keyboardist Nadolny was adequately compensated for with two dueling guitarists as demonstrated by an impressive in-studio jam entitled " Jane Session" as well as a spaced out extended track "Comin' Again" featuring Maucher's harder edged vocals. Not long after the release of Jane III, Maucher and Krantz departed, eventually forming Harlis on the fledgling Sky Records label. In May 1974 Jane rejuevenated itself by absorbing two members from the recently disbanded hard rock band Dull Knife with Martin Hesse ...Playing a melodious synthesis of symphonic hard rock that has occcasionally been compared to Pink Floyd, Hanover Krautrockers Jane can trace their origins back to the late sixties psychedelic band Justice Of Peace.

Not long after the release of Jane III, Maucher and Krantz departed, eventually forming Harlis on the fledgling Sky Records label. In May 1974 Jane rejuevenated itself by absorbing two members from the recently disbanded hard rock band Dull Knife with Martin Hesse on bass and Gottfreid Janko on vocals and keyboards. The slightly more upbeat Lady album was recorded by this lineup in early 1975 during which time Matthias Jabs of Scorpions fame would also join them for a breif period for some live performances.

Keyboardist Werner Nadolny returned in 1976 for Jane's expansive 33 minute symphonic progressive rock masterpiece " Fire, Water Earth & Air". Featuring Layers of Hammonds, Moogs, mellotrons and synths, it was unquestionably Jane at their creative zenith and the Jane album that would hold the most appeal for progheads. Nadolny would split once again after the completion of "Fire, Water, Earth & Air" and was appropriately replaced by Eloy keyboardist Martin Weiczorke for an extensive tour that spawned another coup de grace for JANE resulting in the stunning " Live At Home" double live LP replete with a cover of a Martian landscape snapped by the Viking Mars lander. Released in early 1977 and broadcast nationally in it's entirety in on WDR Radio in January of that year, "Live At Home" went gold in their native Germany and helped them break the international markets in both North America as well as Japan and South America.

Containing somewhat darker conceptual atmospheres, their 7th studio album "Between Heaven & Hell" once again followed progrock pardigms. Mixed reactions within the German music press did not prevent the album from being embraced by fans that was at times similar to Pink Floyd's capacious stylings. By this time Jane had become one of the top draws in the German music scene as well as attracting followings in Switzerland and Austria even though they continued to sing in English. Recorded in the band's personal 24 track studio, 1978's Age of Madness rocked it out a little harder maintaining emotional spacey timbres and was released internationally, being presented in clear and red vinyl formats on the now defunct Canadian label Bomb Records. A successful European tour ensued but Weiczorke departed in early 1979. Jane's following album "Sign No. 9" was a near disaster with Jane being reduced to a trio forcing Hess to double on keyboards and the album inevitably had a guitar dominated sound which was devoid of the spacious moods created by lush keyboards on earlier Jane recordings. Signs of creative burnout cast some doubts not only in the minds of fans but within the band themselves.

A new direction was taken in the 1980s on a self-titled album that is sometimes referred to as "Mask" by afficiados. It incorporated new wave, punk and jazzy elements in straight rock configurations and introduced a new vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist, Yugoslavian eccentric Predrag Jonanovic or "Pedja". Vocals were never Jane's forté and Pedja's energetic deliveries gave them a fresh sound but unfortunately it was his only appearance with the band and he returned to his native Yugoslavia to form the synth-pop group D'Boys. Bassman Charly Maucher returned to the fold for 1982's "Germania" and although it contained some more experiments including a reggae excursion on the track "Get Back To You" Jane remained, for the most part, a straight hard rock band and included a reworked version of "Twighlight" from their "Between Heaven & Hell" album entitled "Southern Line" that even ventured into heavy metal territory. Internal disagreements between founding members Peter Panka and Klaus Hess resulted in Hess' departure in 1982. He would subsequently release a solo album "Stementanz" in 1983 that would recall earlier Jane stylings.

Meanwhile, after collaborating on the musical production on the German rock Opera "Warlock" with other former members of Jane, Peter Panka reformed Jane as a touring band under the moniker Lady Jane in 1984 with various musicians. Unfortunately a coherent unit failed to materialize for the remainder of the decade and only one pop-oriented album "Beautiful Lady" was released in 1986 with no real connection to past glories. Two live albums were also released in 1989 and 1990 with the former being limited to only 300 pressings and both featured Panka on drums/vocals, Nadolny on keyboards, Klaus Henatsch on bass & keyboards and Kai Rueter on guitar performing older Jane material.

In 1992 Hess and Panka attempted to reconcile and along with Nadolny on keyboards and with Jens Dettmer they embarked on a reunion tour that included 13 dates in New Zealand! But the reconciliation failed and Jane split into two factions with Hess calling his version Mother Jane while the Panka formation became unofficially known as Peter Panka's Jane as he retained the rights for the band name and logo. In `96 Peter Panka's Jane ( initially referred to as Pano's Jane) recorded the studio album " Resurrection" and introduced ex- Epitaph member Klaus Walz along with Kai Reuter ( formerly of Kasch ) on guitars with veteran Nadolny returning on keyboards and Mark Giebeler on bass. Meanwhile Hess' Mother Jane with younger musicians was also touring playing mostly Jane classics, releasing a single in 1998 and finally a suprisingly impressive live album "Comes Alive" in 2000 that reflected the heavier side of Jane.

A more cohesive attempt was made by Panka in 2002 to rekindle the classic Jane groove of the seventies with Klaus Walz joining original members Panka, Nadolny and Maucher. A new album " Genuine"( that also contained some live tracks from the failed `92 reunion ) materialized and was followed by a tour which saw the band performing the new material but focused on renditions of old classics. A live album, "Live 2002", documented the shows and although not possessing the impact of 1976's "Live at Home", it was a definite indication of Jane's return to the limelight attracting both old and new fans. Not content to tour soley as a retro-Jane band, two more studio albums were released in 2003 ( Shine On ) and 2007 ( Voices) that burned on in the classic Jane tradition.

Tragically, founding member Peter Panka passed away as result of cancer in June 2007 which put the band on hold. However, in compliance with Panka's wishes original member Charly Maucher took over as leader and another studio album "Traces" was released in 2009 with the current lineup of Charly Maucher on lead vocals/bass, Klaus Waltz guitar/vocals, Arndt Shulz guitar vocals and Fritz Randow ( ex Eloy & Saxon ) on drums plus Werner Nadolny on keyboards. Although Werner Nadolny has since left the band, he currently tours with his own Jane tribute band performing vintage Jane material. Klaus Hess' Mother Jane also remains active with a recently released 2009 album titled " In Dreams".

Along with other bands such as Amon Duul II, Grobschnitt and Guru Guru, Jane continues to bear the torch of the early seventies Krautrock phenomenom and continues on in that spirit to this day in three different guises led by original members.

Why this band should be included in Progarchives :
legendary German band that combined symphonic elements with blues based hard rock to create a distinct groovy sound that has endured for 40 years.

Biography by Greg Prato

German blues/boogie-woogie pianist Axel Zwingenberger was born in Hamburg on May 7, 1955. Originally, Zwingenberger studied classical piano (for 11 solid years), before discovering such authentic blues artists as Albert Ammons, Meade "Lux" Lewis, and Pete Johnson, who served as an immediate influence on the pianist. Along with three other piano playing friends, Zwingenberger began playing blues concerts and festivals on a regular basis, including the 1974 First International Blues and Boogie Woogie Festival for a West German radio station in Cologne, as well as Hans Maitner's annual festival, Stars of Boogie Woogie, in Vienna.

By 1975, Zwingenberger received his first recording contract, issuing such solo recordings as Boogie Woogie Breakdown, Power House Boogie, and Boogie Woogie Live, as well as lending his talents to recordings by such artists as Lionel Hampton, Jay McShann, Big Joe Turner, Lloyd Glenn, Joe Newman, Sippie Wallace, Mama Yancey, Champion Jack Dupree, Sammy Price, Ray Bryant, Charlie Watts, Vince Weber, and the Mojo Blues Band, among others. In addition to issuing other solo recordings, Zwingenberger continues to tour all over the world and has also authored several publications about blues/boogie-woogie music and musicians.

Guitar Pete 1998 Burning Bridges



Burning Bridges is a pretty apt title for Guitar Pete's incendiary solo debut. The artist keeps his namesake instrument blazing throughout the record, which essentially amounts to 43 minutes of gloriously shameless showboating. Pete is not a particularly talented vocalist; his booming, throaty bass is well-suited to the blues, but it would hardly earn him a recording deal on its own. On some tracks, he seems to give up entirely on the idea of singing, resorting instead to shouting the words rhythmically. Two of the album's best tracks ("J.B. Shuffle" and "Chillin" ) are instrumental tunes that allow the guitar to wail for itself in a smoldering tizzy of dexterous showmanship.

The album's sound is remarkably three dimensional for a three-piece band (Guitar Pete is joined by Anthony Bernardo on drums and Marc B. Gilman on bass guitar) playing a series of more or less run-of-the-mill Chicago-style blues songs. That's because Pete's fretwork is so dense and multi-faceted, letting more than a little '70s jam band influence to crash his ostensibly traditional blues party. This is particularly true in his explosive take on the familiar blues-rock tune "Mustang Sally" and in the smoky rhythm and blues number "Do You Hear the Rain." Burning Bridges is not a brilliant album; it has no pretensions to greatness. It is simply straightforward showmanship and as such it's a pleasure. (All Music)

Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird 2006 The Broken Tongue



Fronted by Jewish-Detroiter singer-songwriter Daniel Kahn on vocals, accordion, piano and guitar with East German Johannes Paul Graesser on fiddle, US expat composer Michael Tuttle on upright bass and a rotating roster of some of Berlin and New Yorks best young Klezmer and Balkan players, the band was formed in Berlin in fall of 2005. Guest artists on the CD include NY downtown Tsadik players Brandon Seabrook & Eric Rosenthal (Naftule's Dream), Holland's rising yiddish folk diva Niki Jacobs (Nikitov), and members of Berlin's "Grinstein's Mishpoche" and "Shikker Vi Lot." Like the grotesque Jerzy Kosinski novel from which they take their name, The Painted Bird reminds us that even if man is only an animal, he can still sing (CD-Baby)

The Beat Daddys 1992 No We Ain't From Clarksdale



Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 254 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:40:43
Size: 69,97 MB

Biography by Richard Skelly

An amalgamation of blues and Southern rock, the Beat Daddys are comprised of Lewis Ross (drums), Brill Morris (bass and vocals), Larry Grisham (guitar, harp and vocals), and Britt Meacham (guitar and vocals). Meacham, from Mobile, Alabama, was a member of Jackson Highway, a group that recorded for Capitol Records, and also toured with soul-blues man Little Milton Campbell. Bassist Morris was part of Mercury Records' David and the Giants and performed in a popular regional Gulf Coast band, Magik. Drummer Ross, also from Mobile, was a founding member of Wet Willie, and he was involved in co-writing the band's hits "Keep on Smilin'," "Red Hot Chicken" and "Macon Hambone Blues."

The Beat Daddys formed in Evansville, Indiana in the mid-1980s and released their own self-produced album before signing with Malaco Records. Their two mid-1990s Malaco/Waldoxy releases, No, We Ain't From Clarksdale and South to Mississippi, are not straight-ahead blues, to be sure, but fans of blues, roots-rock and Southern rock can find much to appreciate in either of them.

The band formed in 1979 based around an excellent guitarist and singer, Hans McMinamin. Countless concerts in Germany and neighbouring European countries, in addition to their appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival have proved that their reputation as an extraordinary live band is well-earned.

A variety of Blues legends such as Katie Webster, Sidney “Guitar Crusher” Selby or Rick Derringer (The McCoys) were so impressed by the band, they booked them to tour with them as support.

The 11 CDs the band has released – also with masters of their craft such as Alvin Lee (Ten Years After), Chris Farlowe (Colosseum), Calvin Owens (BB King’s Musical Director), Katie Webster and Sidney “Guitar Crusher” Selby – represent further milestones which can be charted in the band’s 30-year history. The absolute highlight was the studio-session for the “Taylormade” album. Mick Taylor, the former Rolling Stones guitarist, came to Tübingen to play as guest musician on the album.

The James Solberg Band 1995 See That My Grave Is Kept Clean





Genre: Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:53:27
Size: 122,21 MB

James Solberg's debut album 'See That My Grave is Kept Clean' is a storming collection of hard-driving electric blues. Before he had the chance to make this record, Solberg perfected his trade by working as a sideman. Those years slinging a guitar paid off in spades, as this record demonstrates. There's a maturity to his style, but there's also unbridled energy - the combination is, at times, irresistable. The songs may be a little uneven, but there's no denying that Solberg and his crack supporting band have made 'See That My Grave Is Kept Clean' into something to remember.

Quicksilver Messenger Service 1969 Shady Grove





Genre: Psychedelic Rock
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:43:32
Size: 79,63 MB

Review by Lindsay Planer

The third long-player from San Francisco psychedelic icons Quicksilver Messenger Service (QMS) is a direct contrast from their previous discs. Shady Grove (1969) is comprised mostly of shorter and self-contained pieces as opposed to the long and extended jams that were so prevalent on their self-titled debut (1967) and Happy Trails (1969). Ironically, the one stretched-out instrumental is courtesy of their latest acquisition -- Brit recording session guru Nicky Hopkins (keyboards). Another possible reason for the shift in style as well as personnel is the conspicuous absence of Gary Duncan (guitar) -- who is rumored to have been a "guest" of Bay Area law enforcement at the time. The band incorporate a number of different styles on the album.

Kicking off the disc is an up-tempo rocking version of the traditional Appalachian folk song "Shady Grove." The QMS reading is highlighted by John Cipollina's trademark fluid fretwork and a familiar "Bo Diddley" backbeat -- reminiscent of both "Who Do You Love" and "Mona" from the live ensemble LP Happy Trails. The slow and dark "Flute Song" is a trippy minor chord masterpiece that is augmented by the shimmering effect of Hopkins' airy piano lines which mingle throughout the light orchestration. Additionally, QMS try their hand at the same country & western-flavored sound that was making the rounds with their San Fran contemporaries the Jefferson Airplane ("The Farm") and the Grateful Dead ("Dire Wolf"). However, the down-home cowboy waltz "Word's Can't Say" never gets out of the stable, unfortunately. This somewhat uneven effort would sadly foreshadow QMS's journey from psychedelia and into a much more pop-oriented sound on their follow-up, Just for Love (1970). However, enthusiasts of those albums will find much more to revisit on Shady Grove than those who favored the first two records.

The Homemade Jamz Blues Band 2008 Pay Me No Mind



Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:47:31
Size: 108,68 MB

Review by Steve Leggett

Tupelo, MS-based siblings Ryan Perry (15 years old), Kyle Perry (13 years old), and Taya Perry (10 years old) may be young but they've sure got a handle on what the blues is all about, and this debut disc is eye opening for its professional sound and personal vision.

Most of that comes from Ryan Perry, whose guitar playing and rough-hewed, smoky vocals sound like they come from a man at least twice his age, and aside from the set-closing cover of John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom," he wrote everything here, and again, it's hard to believe that such solid and fully realized blues songs like "The World's Been Good to You," "Penny Waiting on Change," and the trance blues stunner "Pay Me No Mind" were written and delivered by a teenager. This is a group that can only get better, and that's a delightfully scary thought, because this album is pretty good already. Stay tuned to this band.

Jane 1972 Together





Genre: Progressive Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:43:53
Size: 100,39 MB

Review by Mike DeGagne

Inundated with every characteristic of progressive rock, Germany's Jane combined elements of jazz fusion, space rock, and even heavy metal at times to come up with a sound that was always exciting and never restrained. On 1972's Together, they fabricate a sound that combines the percussiveness of hard rock with the expansive wandering of makeshift melodies, all kept intact by the vocals of Berndt Pulst, who luckily doesn't have to be a great singer thanks to the intricacies of the organ and flute that are widely predominant.

Nonetheless, this debut album offers up some engaging prog rock through the freestyled transience of the lead and bass guitars. The full 12 minutes of "Spain" is punctuated with some stellar drum playing via Peter Panka and some interesting singing from bass player Charly Maucher near the end. Showing signs that their music will gain experimental momentum in future albums (and it did), the placid eeriness that is germinated in "Daytime" and "Hangman" prove that Jane have their roots firmly planted in the space rock and Krautrock genres, only to evolve into other avant-garde areas later in the '70s on albums like Here We Go and Fire, Water, Earth & Air. As one of the most popular bands on the progressively oriented Brain label, Jane's exploratory brand of guitar/organ/percussion based music is well-established throughout these six tracks.

01 - Daytime 08:07

02 - Wind 04:58
