LED ZEPPELIN – PHYSICAL GRAFFITI 12″ LP ALBUM VINYL

A0630 LED ZEPPELIN Physical Graffiti
Front album cover

“Physical Graffiti” is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released on 24 February 1975 as a double album. Recording sessions for the album were initially disrupted when bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones considered leaving the band. After reuniting at Headley Grange, the band wrote and recorded eight songs, the combined length of which stretched the album beyond the typical length of an LP. This prompted the band to make Physical Graffiti a double album by including previously unreleased tracks from earlier recording sessions.

Abbey Road is the eleventh released studio album by English rock band The Beatles and their last recorded. Though “Let It Be” was the last album released before the band’s dissolution in 1970, work on Abbey Road began in April 1969. Abbey Road was released on 26 September 1969 in the United Kingdom, and 1 October 1969 in the United States. It was produced and orchestrated by George Martin for Apple Records. Geoff Emerick was engineer, Alan Parsons was assistant engineer, and Tony Banks was tape operator.

“Abbey Road” is regarded as one of The Beatles’ most tightly constructed albums, although the band was barely operating as a functioning unit at the time. Rolling Stone placed it at number 14 on its list of “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. In 2009, readers of the magazine also named Abbey Road the greatest Beatles album.

This album “BINTANGS Rhythm & Blues PROMO ” is a 12″ Promotional LP and has been distributed to DJ’s. The label has “Special DJ Pleaser” printed on it (near 3”o clock)

The Bintangs is one of Holland’s oldest rock/blues-rock bands and was formed around the year 1961 and are today (2019) still active. They started in 1961 as a so-called Indorock band (“Indorock” comes from bands with people of Indonesian origine playing rock and roll and knowing for their lively acts, eg: The Tielman Brothers). Therefore the band-name comes from the Indonesian word “Star”.

Transcript of the original liner notes:

The Bintangs have always had a unique, progressive sound. They started out in the mid-sixties and l many other groups then they drew heavily upon American Blues and Rhythm and Blues. They even played in one program with the Rolling Stones , The Kinks and at one tine there was a strong rumour that Van Morrison would join the Bintangs as a lead singer. However nothing came of it… and then again they didn’t really need him. Gus Pleines who is one of the two original members still in the band became their singer. Together with Frank Kraayeveld, the bass-player they went through it all., Favarable Criticism , troubles with managers, producers, record companies and their executives. They even had some hitzsin Holland and Germany (Ridin On The L & N and Travellin In The U.S.A.) in 1969-1970. After that they seemed to have disappeared but they reformed, added some young blood and cut an album -Genuine Bull- with Steve Verocca at Rockfield Ln 1975. The album did pretty well and the Bintangz were ready to record another album but none of the major companies wanted to deal with them not realising the power of Bintangs’ Rhythm and Blues. So Dynamite Records picked up on it and recorded them live at their hometown; and Ln August 1977 at the famous Rockfield Studios, with Sean Tyla producing. They put one another through a lot of hassles but the band got what they wanted, a raw, lively, shattering sound.

This e.p. holds four tracks and introduces you to Bintangs’ music: Rock, Rock, Rhythm & Blues,it must be be going round.
