THE ISLE OF WIGHT SHOWS
The second Isle Of Wight festival took place on August 30th and 31st 1969, that’s just a few weeks after Woodstock. Contrary to Woodstock, however, this wonderful festival with its impressive and eclectic programme is not very well documented. There is no sound-track, no LP or CD release, no documentary film, not even a programme book… Some footage can be found on Youtube, but the audio and visual quality is usually below standard. Regretfully, we cannot offer any live recordings.
In My Generation, Radio 68 plays a personal selection of tracks from artists that appeared at the Isle of Wight in 1969.
In Long-playtime, we broadcast LP tracks, full LPs or entire LP-sides from albums released between 1968 and 1970 by same artists.
We have avoided the artists that were played in our Woodstock shows, because their sets do not really differ and we would need to draw on the same albums anyway (e.g. The Who, Richie Havens, Joe Cocker).
PSYCHEDELIC STATES: Alabama in the 60s, vol. 2
“The second Alabama instalment in Gear Fab’s fab “Psychedelic States” is more of the same, meaning a mixed bag of Clearasil psychedelia and undersexed garage rock, but it skews enticingly more towards the former sort of weirdness this time around than did the original volume. The compilation still has the good (but not psychedelic) regional hits mixed in with the fourth-rate, mainstream-aping pap (unappetizing even as guilty nostalgic pleasures) and more than its fair share of decent but not-nearly-as-groovy-as-they-thought filler, which is at least of a quality to elicit a giggle or smile the first two or three times through (though that is perhaps one or two more spins than the stuff merits). On the other hand, the relatively significant number of oddball, shaggy-dog nuggets makes the collection worth sifting through, starting right out the box with The Chimes “#38” and its effects pedal-heavy acid blues. The Distortions do a far-out, yowling (literally) version of the Howlin’ Wold classic “Smokestack Lightning” with some excellent slide guitar work, good enough to get them signed to Mercury. The deliciously named the Outer Mongolian Herd crank out a “Hey Joe” halfway between the Love version of the song and the unhinged nuttiness of “Wooly Bully.” And the infectious, harmony-laden “You’re Playing With Fire” finds The Male in full-tilt boogie. But perhaps the strangest curiosity, for extra-musical reasons: “Think!!,” a 1968 cut by George Wallace Jr. Yes, the son of the infamous governor. And, yeah, it’s pretty solid”.
