Fill Your Head with Rock - "The Sound of The Seventies"

From The Promotional Booklet

Fill Your Head with Rock Main Page


Remember Chicago
A Group called Chicago
The group responsible for a couple of the biggest packages of tight rock music we've ever released. Two albums and every track is there for a reason. Electronic music. Blues. Rock. Rock. Rock. A Powerful brass section. And musicians who are capable of playing solid, no-gimmick music.

Janis Joplin

All Janis
Earthy - dynamic - belting - groovy - vibrating - harsh chords - sweet, tantalising, cruel purity - post innocence - sexual pazazz - without limits. All words people use trying to describe Janis Joplin and her indescribable voice. Now you try to find the right one.


Rod Argent, Russ Ballard, Robert Henrit, Jim Rodford, together working their own way, because they know what they want.

Blood, Sweat & Tears

Is Not Afraid to Be Different

Marc Brierley

Says "Hello" to The Poetry of Rock

The Byrds

Always Beyond Today
"While there is an underlying consistency to all their work, The Byrds have a capacity to grow in a way uncommon to the pop scene. They are always pushing themselves to the next plateau, even with one eye glancing at their past ..." (John Landau)

Miles Davis

Fast and Light - and No Vibrato
Miles Davis plays the trumpet that way. Hear and enjoy.

Electric Flag

Straight-from-the-soul, dancing-in-the-streets, drum-splitting, flashing-brass fireworks.

Leonard Cohen

Did you ever get the feeling that you want to disengage yourself from life? To withdraw into some kind of solitary contemplation just to think about everything for a while? Everything. You. Her. It. Them
Well that's how a poet feels, because he's no different from everyone else. Except that he takes the time to put it all down on paper. Beautifully. And what makes Leonard Cohen a very different poet is that he turns poetry into songs. He did it for "SONGS OF LEONARD COHEN', his first album, and it achieved a rare kind of success.
And now there's "SONGS FROM A ROOM", the second Leonard Cohen album for the growing number of people who have identified with him. And what he feels. But don't have that rare poetic vision.
There could be millions of Leonard Cohens in the world. You may even be him yourself.

Bob Dylan

Did You Ever Hear Bob Dylan?
Listen again. That man smiling out at you has a lot to say. NASHVILLE SKYLINE is his personal statement about love. Real. Sensual. Beautiful. It's Dylan at his purest and simplest. There's no electronic gadgetry, because the music needs no justification. It just feels good.
Listen to NASHVILLE SKYLINE. And to Dylan's other discs too.
They'll make you feel good.
And that's where it's really at, isn't it?

Don Ellis

Don't Believe That Jazz about The Big Band Sound Coming Back
It ain't. It's here already. Way up front. Because Don Elis is into electronics. Polyrhythms. Tomorrow.

Moby Grape

Truly Great


Will Stop You in Your Tracks
Three-man band plays guitars and drums with mighty strength, individual style, hypnotic drama.

The Flock

Their Name is The Flock - Run with Them
The Flock is unique. A pace-setting new group. John Mayall (a musician's musician) called them the best band he'd heard in America. Listen to their album. See if you agree. Then run with the Flock. And watch them spread. more Flocks

Tim Hardin

It's Only The Beginning
Tim Hardin writes Love Songs. About the difficulty of becoming, - of becoming a man, a lover, a husband, a father. His first record for CBS represents all that an artist would want to attain. A deeply personal statement lovingly brought to life, carefully nurtured in every step of its growth. Tim Hardin considers it the best he's ever done. And what makes it extra special - it's only the beginning.
(Suite for Susan Moore and Damion)

It's A Beautiful Day

It's a beautiful day whenever you play "IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY". They're together the way a good jazz group should be.

Roy Harper

Listen with An Open Heart
Roy Harper, folk musician, sings of life and the experience of living.

Moog Machine

A Man and His Moog Machine
Walter Carlos with his Moog Machine plays electronically synthesised music - which means you can switch on to Bach or rock, hear it the way the current flows.


Is The World Ready for Moondog?
Moondog writes music in his head (because Moondog is blind). Moondog's music is in the style of the classics such as Tchaikovsky and Bach, yet somehow in the theme of life today.
Is this too rich a mixture?

Laura Nyro

Her Talent Goes Deeper Than The Words She Writes
Other artists have hits recording her songs. Now she sings and plays her own compositions on "Eli and the 13th Confession" and "New York Tendaberry". Laura Nyro - writer, composer, singer, performer - is here.


Magic Music from NRBQ
"Listen, here we have rock and roll and very magic rock and roll ... the power, the energy and the excitement ... a joyous ecstatic experience".
Mike Jahn

Tim Rose

- No Other to Compare
"The sudden presence of Tim Rose has, for me personally, posed an intriguing question. Was there a gap in pop music before he came along? His style is such that it owes nothing to any other performer ... his songs are real as life ... he is an artist who tears appreciation out of his audience ... he is an individual".
Mike Clifford

Pacific Gas and Electric

"Five more different and divergent personalities could not be conceived of - a Jew, a Christian, a Black, a Greaser and a WASP. What we have learned about one another in the year and a half that we have been together as the PG&E is: no matter how different we are in philosophies and life stlles, the common denominator between us is the music ..."


It Makes You Sweat
Pulsating African Rhythms. Hot Latin soul. Fused tightly together by the catalyst of rock.
Wild. Restless. Santana.
For your body as well as your soul.


"The music as a reflection of emotion is our form of communication and love with the universe. We want to bridge the gap between all kinds of music ... between all ages, all races, all kinds of styles ... What counts now is not "authenticity" but quality".

Simon and Garfunkel

Simon and Garfunkel Speak for Themselves
Paul Simon writes and sings songs about loneliness, love faded, time passing, the pains of youth. Sad songs, but they make you feel happier.

Taj Mahal

"Men who love one another: men who are always in love with lovely ladies, children, dogs, cats: with old Ma Nature at her best and at her worst: men who can laugh and cry ... men who can accept their own mistakes and the mistakes of others. It's all living you know".
Taj Mahal said that. That's the way he talks. That's the way he thinks. That's the way he sings.
