a MIRO and BLUESHACKS taping trip

Recorded by dear MIRO and BLUESHACKS somewhere not far from stage edge. It was not indicated who recorded which show, but as I know from my previous trips with the two good friends,
that it was most likely 50:50. A bit uneven recording which was not the fault of the tapers, but mainly several technical problems on the stage, which led to several tuning pauses of
those I sometimes edited into a "track". Anyway, after some "acostic surgery" I think it sounds quite good.

After a day of fun at the Yellowstock Festival on 8th of August, my fellow friends decided to go even a step further and drove to this lovely small festival in northern France (some 70 kms
from Paris) and came back with raving reviews. Located in the woods outside a very small village, those thre days of peace and music were simply mindblowing to them. Apart from a bit of
rain during the weekend and some funny occurances like selfmade toilets of the more rural sort, the most told expression was: Burg Herzberg in small. Well, judging the size of the "big one"
with far more than 10.000+ people, this setting was sold out with about 500 only to a very fine admission fee of 30 Euros including campng for the whole weekend. I have not heard too much
about the catering, but as we're in France, it surely could've not too bad. As it was also holiday and - yes your fellow Spacebandit was not hand for supporting taping - a bunch of bands
were taped, but far from all those that played on the two lovely designed stages. All thanks straight to the towns of Gescher and Kevelaer to my buddies for their fine "work". SB.

Oh yes, near the end of these recordings and close to the end of this fantastic outdoor festival in the lovely woods of northern France, here's a band that really put the "icing" on the
gorgeous musical cake that was offered. Three guys from (close to) Rome, Italia serve you a real exciting mixture of exceptional mindblowing psychedelic rock and roll music from the great
era of music between 1968 and 1972. But this is 2015, and it still works fine. Not only the two cover tunes really stand out here, it's the outstanding original material which is just simply amazing.
The band has released two full length albums so far which I highly recommend to purchase at your local record dealer. And - uh, before I forget a thought. This reminded me very much of a
fantastic show of the Nederland based band "Orange Sunshine", where there was also a "singing" drummer, nice reworkings of cover tunes and possibly the same vibe.
Go ahead and listen to this fabulous three young guys from Italia. Forza! SB.
