robsongs essa grande falta de você

The Robsongs project (Brazil) began back in 2008, initially under the name Minha Vida Nunca Foi um Picnic (My Life Was Never a Picnic). Back then it was a classic power trio format comprised of Robson Gomes, Alex and Augusto Medeiros Vitorino. After Alex’s premature death and several trials and tribulations, the group disbanded. Robson Gomes then decided to focus on the project and started writing new songs alone and recording them in his home studio. Released through The Blog That Celebrates Itself bandcamp.

the national gallery “performing musical interpretations of the paintings of paul klee” 1968


This superbly melodic and strange distillation of pop, folk, psych and jazz was inspired by the paintings of Paul Klee, and first appeared in 1968. Despite being credited to a proper band, it was in fact a studio recording overseen by the Cleveland-based team of jazz composer Chuck Mangione and local producer-arranger Roger Karshner, who called the songs ‘electronic paintings’. The album is presented here for the first time on CD, complete with liner notes and two rare bonus tracks from a pre-LP 45 credited to Bhagavad-Gita.

it’s us “don’t want your lovin’” 1966

it's us don't want your lovein'

One of the rarest records on the BFTG series, and containing an equally nice folk-ish b-side which is so far un-compiled. This is rather too folky to hit the top 50 on this list, but we estimate 5 or 6 copies only exist, one known to be vg+, another vg- with stained labels. Hear it on BFTG7. Hear the moody folk jangler flipside on Teen Blast USA Vol. 1. Included on the compilation “Back from The Grave, Vol. 7”.

the july four “frightened little girl / mr. miff” 1967

the july four

“Frightened Little Girl” b/w ?Mr/ Miff” (Cameo 480). This great summer of 1967 garage band release has been comped on the CD, “Fading Yellow, Vol. 2” and the flip is actually an excellent instrumental version of the same song. The b-side Mr. Miff sound a lot like 80’s Felt. You can find both at:

london and the bridges

Even though he was responsible for co-writing five of the six recorded 45 sides for London & The Bridges, guitarist/vocalist Richie Weintraub decided to leave the band to pursue other career interests. Those songs are in high demand today by ‘60’s music collectors and have been included on a variety of reissue compilations.
