I nearly did a spit take with my coffee on that one, Tom!

But, yeah, you ain't kiddin' - other than Chico Magnetic Band and Lucifer's Friend (because EVERY even vaguely occult group has been unearthed), this entire set is unknown to me! Can't wait to blast it up!

Happy Holidaze!

Hey Mars. One man's trash is another man's treasure, am I right?
Hope you find some tracks in this trove that float your boat!
Got plenty more hard rock obscurities to come in the new year...

Another triumph....thanks once again for scouring the globe for the hardest rock known to man (and woman). A Cheap Trick buff, I was pleasantly surprised to hear Rick Nielsen. Cheers!

Knew you would appreciate a bit of Cheap Trick prehistory, KB.

I'm in the process of putting together a playlist for Hard Stuff #19 right now. There's more vintage heaviosity to come!

Man, I simply love your show! Question: Do you have anything by a band called, 'Froop?' I used to have their vinyl...I'd love to hear once again their music! Thanks for all the wonderful ''Vibes!'' Ol' Uncle Marty

MAD4MUSIC said...

Hi Marty. I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying the shows!
Froop? I've never heard of that band. I'm curious.... What can you tell us about them?

I just returned from a trip to Jupiter (Florida, that is) to find a fresh new wave of playlists. Thanks! I enjoy your incredible finds on walks and rides on my fat bike through the woods. Thank you!

MAD4MUSIC said...

I'm envious, Craig... I've never been to Jupiter, but I've been to Hell (Michigan, that is).

Hello, Tom! Can't really tell you much about, 'Froop.' I had the album but like 90% of my vinyl collection, sold it in the early 90s, unfortunately. It was one of those albums I located in the ''cheap'' section...but there were always some ''gems'' in there (at that time.) LOL! Certainly what I recall, they would have been perfect for 'The Hard Stuff!'
Please continue your fantastic podcasts...they mean so much to me... and I've been spreading the word to my ''music friends'' about your shows.
Enjoy the ''Vibes!''

Tom,Question: I'm very much surprised that 'Sonic Daydream' is not on 'Facebook?' More and more people need to listen to your fantastic podcasts! Just my two cents here, Buddy!
Keep em' coming, Tom!
