McChurch Soundroom – Delusion (1971)

“MCCHURCH SOUNDROOM is an eclectic psych free blues rock ensemble that has closed relationships with krautrock (in particular with the heavy, stoned jazzy sound of Nosferatu) but also with folkish bands from England (Jethro Tull first era…). Their original LP “Delusison” was released in 1971 on the legendary Pilz label (Popol Vuh, Wallenstein, Witthuser & Westrupp…). This psych folk underground act is now cult.”

El Amor – En Vivo (1971)

“Rock band formed in the late 60’s, first as “Los Pajaros”, and led by Miguel Cardenas. The band was originally from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, and participated the Youth Festival which was conducted the March 13, 1970 in that city, after receiving outstanding reviews from critics, they decided to try their luck in Mexico City, where they recorded their first LP, which included covers of popular songs at that time.The group renamed as “El Amor” in August 1971 and appear in the popular in a TV show on Sunday in which it was not common invite rock bands. “El Vivo” is their second album, released 1971. The band really crank it up here, with loads of wigged-out fuzz guitar heavily featured on six lengthy tracks of high energy acid rock.”

Pink Fairies – Finland Freakout (1971)

“The first European excursion for The Pink Fairies saw them blowing amps, money and minds at the three-day Ruisrock Festival in Turku, Northern Finland in 1971. Recorded by the state radio station, the three-piece, now without Twink, consisted of Russell Hunter on drums, Paul Rudolph on guitar and vocals, and Duncan Sanderson on bass. Unleashing heavy, acid-drenched jams on the audience, beginning with a blistering attack on The Beatles’ psych classic Tomorrow Never Knows, the Fairies must have blown away the opposition – Juicy Lucy, Jeff Beck, Canned Heat and Fairport Convention – with sheer force.”
