The Bongos - The Demo Tape 81 w Drums Along The Hudson LP 82 w Numbers With Wings EP 83 w Beat Hotel LP 85 w Richard Barone - Cool Blue Halo (Live) LP 87 w Primal Dream LP 90 w James Maestro - Nuts And Bolts split EP 83

REPOST Request:  I would say one of New Jersey's finest band legacies.  The first album DATH is an electronic orgy of sound and futuristic gizmos.  I have added the demo tape to this post from 81.

HAZE - st LP 74

Here is one I got for a quarter back in the nineties while I was discovering loads of new soul and spiritual music to my ears.  Love the early 70's soul period with bands like the Rimshots, the Masqueraders, the Crown Heights Affair that I have posted already.  These guys were from Minneapolis and my buddy Go Johnny Go was selling copies of this for the longest time and then also they had another release he was marketing directly from the band.  These kind of early funk bands usually had a hit instrumental dance song...in this case the super fast 'Toe Jam' opens up side 2 to put you in a HAZE!!           http://www20.zippyshare.com/v/KqQL3ex8/file.html

TRIUMVIRAT - Mediterranean Tales (Across The Waters) LP 72 w Illusions On A Double Dimple LP 74 w Spartacus LP 75 w Old Loves Die Hard LP 76 w Pompeii LP 77 w A La Carte LP 78

After the American 70's Prog band posted a couple of weeks ago, here we have the who is known as the German ELP.  They take even quarkier twists and turns and so maketh 70's prog rock!!

Jawbreaker - Demo 89 w Whack and Blite 7 89 w Demo 90 w Unfun LP 90 w Radio Session 90 w Rarities Revised Edition

REPOST and ADD ON:  Recently got to watch the Jawbreaker film at a recent music film festival and it featured Steve Albini saying up front this band is not to be confused with Jawbox who I remember was all over our 90's radio in the Midwest.
