Hi tickle,
every month a new Electric Lemonade Acid Test. Why? To keep you excited! No, the main reason is that I have lend the records to a couple of friends and now I've got back Vol. 2. Hope I'll get Vol. 1 back soon.

Hello Buffalo.A few minutes ago I was thinking to a Tenth Planet album I never found;The KINGPINS,have you this album ?.

Buffalo Billycan said...

I have the 101 Strings but you can find it easily on other blogs (High All The Time for instance).

thanks for your recommendation. I haven't heard it yet but it sounds interesting. I will post the "Fenner, Leland and O'Brien" albums in a few days.

Sorry, I haven't that album (and I haven't seen it either). I only know the three tracks from the Hen's Teet Vol. 2 compilation.
