Latest post of the previous page:

The project with Ace Kefford and Jimmy Page mentioned in the post above resulted in this song, "Save the Life of My Child" which was recorded by Kefford and Page in the late sixties, but abandoned by Kefford and remained unreleased until a decade or so ago.
It was however covered by Simon and Garfunkel at the time... (Actually it might have been written by Simon) :dunno:

Would love to find a copy of the Kefford / Page (cover??) version but struggling to find one.... so here is the Simon & Garfunkel version.


*My woman cant wrestle. But you should see her box!*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

He did record some at the time unpublished stuff with amongst others Jimmy Page (pre Zep). He then set up AKS with Cozy Powell, Dave Ball (who went on later to Procol Harum) and Dennis Ball.

Love the guitar that starts c 3:30 in.....

The drumming here is astonishingly brill.

And BTW, "to thrill you with delight"... just loved that part. Used to mishear that, thus (3:40),

"To fill your empty life,
I'll cut the darndest fart,
and then the sparks they will ignite,
& make you feel like shee-ei-shite"

Well, only crepidationally...

Perhaps that is the shi-ite cover version, performed historically in the middle eastern (Sunniside) by Bakr ass-Sid and Mo-Hammeroid?? :dunno:

I was in Slovenia (at the time like a discount Austria) in the 90s for a footy game, picked up some discs and tapes, never heard of Laibach at the time, they made some to say the least, bizarre and at times nazi-flirtatious covers of various pop songs. The Opus Dei-album (which is brilliant) is full of this sort of thing. There's even a swastika-shaped emblem with axes on the disc itself. First one is off that, the second is a 'Stones cover, done in the style of Bela Lugosi. Modern kitsch schizo-decadents. You go figure... To me, it's Wagner's Siegfried on LSD, for the post-industrial age. Entirely ludicrous.

A phantasmagoria of psychedelic covers from the same time as the originals. Season of the Witch is the best part (8:05--->). Never even heard of this band.

In memory of Stevie Wright of the Easybeats, who passed away last night, I thought I would post a cover of their biggest hit, Friday on my Mind:
