Nektar on the other side

It’s not easy to choose the album of the culturally dead year 2020. Of course, there were plenty of albums released. Few of them attracted me in a way – yeah, that’s marvelous! The Other Side by Nektar is as close as it gets to this.

RED JASPER – STING IN THE TALE (1990)

Fed up the current wave of progressive rock and looking for something more raw and raucous, yet played with great skill and dexterity? If that is the case, then Red Jasper are the band for you. I asked Davey how he would describe the sound of Red Jasper to the unknowing and was told “Motörhead meets Jethro Tull”. Curious? Read on. VIAC RED JASPER – STING IN THE TALE (1990)

EPITAPH – Five Decades Of Classic Rock (2020)

Half-century down the line and no sign of slowing down, one of the greatest German groups cast a glance behind and plan their next steps.

Founded in Dortmund in 1969, EPITAPH – who featured local performers and British players – didn’t leave a lasting trace on an international level, but connoisseurs keep them in high esteem and, rather importantly, they still deliver the goods. VIAC EPITAPH – Five Decades Of Classic Rock (2020)

ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND – The Final Note (2020)

The bootleg which was bound to become official – a document of the last-ever public performance by a fallen guitar-hero

When a budding radio DJ arrived for an evening with ABB on October 17th, 1971 for an interview with their singer, he could not know the Owings Mills show would see Duane Allman grace and leave the stage to never return, as the artist perished in a motorcycle crash a mere 12 days later, but he felt it wasn’t a regular gig in terms of delivery.

THE OUTLAWS – Live At Rockpalast 1981 (2020)

Florida’s finest purveyors of earthly pleasures shoot for the moon and bask in the stage lights.

One of the least celebrated, yet immensely respected for their stylistic breadth, Southern rock ensembles, this collective have always been severely underserved on video front, with only a single public outing preserved for posterity on VHS and a couple of their television broadcasts landing on unofficial releases.

Split Enz – True Colours (1980)

For anyone living outside Australia or New Zealand, it probably isn’t possible to understand just how big a band these guys were back in the day.
