Piero Piccioni - Il dio sotto la pelle (OST) (1974)
Piero Piccioni
Il dio sotto la pelle (OST) (1974, Easy Tempo)

"In such trying times as these one needs sexy jam-jams to lift ones spirit. Enter la regina del caldo, a hot and steamy fluffer of the wettest grade; fuzzed out psych gits, crystalline organs, xylephonic trancers and euro folk-funk all coalesce in euphoric harmony. Crank the volume, dawn the birth suits, and fiddle your bits all night long kiddies, it's fun time!" - DD

""More sounds! More sounds! More sounds! We want more sounds! We want them! We want more!" Well, here you go fools. More sounds from a master of disaster, Sir John Wiggins. Enjoy it or else!!" - DD

Remko Scha - Machine Guitars (1982)

Machine Guitars (1982, Kremlin)

"And now for something completely different; a droning, mechanized cannonade of electric guitar to entrance the mind and soul. I picked this up recently over at the OWOD blog (highly recommended browsing) and was immediately captivated. I simply had to share, so enjoy it puss heads!" - DD

Todd Rundgren - A Wizard, A True Star (1973)
Todd Rundgren
A Wizard, A True Star (1973, Bearsville)

"Alas, la crème de la crème! The final piece in this 70's soft rock odyssey. And though it leans on the hard side at times it's not without that velvet goodness we all came for. The Toddster is a god among men when it comes to producing lush, eclectic albums; there is so much going on, including an epic medley of covers (you'll likely never hear a better version of Cool Jerk), spazz rockers, gleaming pristine ballads and more! I've wanted to post this for a while so dig it long and hard friends. My personal fav of his and well worth every second of your time!" - DD

Sweet - Level Headed (1977) (LP)
Level Headed (LP) (1978, Polydor / Capitol Records)

"We're continuing this journey with Sweet, California Nights baby! This isn't the greatest radio rock record by any stretch, sure. But it's a good listen and has some real highlights. Plus, it's almost guaranteed to put you in a good mood. Great for cleaning house or cruisin' around town with your head in the clouds. Love Is Like Oxygen rules my world, so dig the glam friends." - DD

Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat (1976)
Al Stewart
Year Of The Cat (1976, RCA Victor / Janus Records)

"Time for some hazy jane, Bowie-infused soft-rock. I've no idea whether Stewart was actually influenced by Bowie, this was his seventh album after all and, in truth, it doesn't sound very much like Bowie at all, but at times it reminds me of him so I said it. Forgive me if I'm talking out of my ass. Anyway, this is pretty laid back, chilled out groovage with some excellent instrumentation and production so please enjoy. And I'll just throw in one more "Bowie" for good luck. Later gators! xoxo" - DD

Bob Welch - French Kiss (1977)
Bob Welch
French Kiss (1977, Capitol Records)

"Is this the best R. Stevie Moore album ever made, you ask? Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves, but it sure is sweet. Former Mac guitarist and singer Bob Welch's debut is a warm sunset of sexual prowess and greasy lyricism. If you're planning a sweaty romp in the park some day soon dig this now." - DD
