The Kingsounds were a Roots Rock revival band that held court in San Francisco music clubs in the late 1980's. They were a vibrant live act, but never released any recordings- Until Now!! The band features guitarist Miles Corbin who went out to form the surf instrumental group the Aqua Velvets. Also featured is vocalist Andy Milton, who sang with Joe Satriani and Crowded House. Elvis meets the early Beatles!!
Musique de Paradiso is the 2nd solo cd from guitarist Miles Corbin of the Aqua Velvets. Corbin's music can be heard in many film and tv soundtracks, as well as the many Aqua Velvets releases. 'Paradiso' ventures into Exotic terrain combining Miles's signature surf sounds with Cuban and Middle Eastern rythms and instruments.

Taking their cue from such '60s surf trailblazers Dick Dale and the Ventures, Aqua Velvets (which includes members Hank Maninger [second guitar], Michael Lindner [bass/keys/accordion], and Donn Spindt [drums], in addition to Corbin) are completely an instrumental band. 1992 saw the release of their self-titled debut release, which was largely a low-budget affair (recorded in the band's own home basement recording studio, with Corbin's guitar overdubs recorded in the back of a car!). Shortly after the initial pressing on their own label sold out, more releases followed — 1995's Surfmania, 1996's Nomad, and 1997's Guitar Noir. In 2000, Corbin issued his very first solo release, Sounds From the Tiki Hut.

The Cimarons formed at a Harlesden methodist youth club in 1967. They initially worked as a backing band for visiting Jamaican singers, eventually being invited to tour Africa in the same capacity. Their first singles, including "Funky Fight", "Oh Mammy Blue", and "Holy Christmas" were released on Trojan subsidiaries including Big Shot and Dandy Livingston's Downtown Records. They also recorded as the Hotshots in their early years, having a UK number 4 hit in 1973 with "Snoopy vs. The Red Baron", with producer Clive Crawley on vocals, and worked as a studio band for producers including Joe Mansano. They toured extensively in their own right, and released their first album, In Time in 1974. This was composed of cover versions of songs such as "Over The Rainbow", "You Can Get It If You Really Want", and original songs. For the second album, 1976's On The Rock, the group travelled to Jamaica, recording with Tommy Cowan.
The band were picked up by Polydor Records in the late 1970s, who issued Maka and a live album, both in 1978. In the late 1970s they shared a stage with punk bands as part of the Rock Against Racism movement. They then moved to Virgin Records for 1980's Freedom Street album. 1982's Reggaebility included cover versions of pop songs such as The Beatles' "Love Me Do" and Wings' "Mull of Kintyre", and proved to be their last studio album.
Singer Winston Reid also found success recording under the name Winston Reedy, topping the reggae chart in 1983 with "Dim the Lights". Reid and Dunn continue to perform as The Cimarons.

A rather confusing album title; you see the parentheses, Time Machine - The History of Canadian 60's Garage Punk and Surf (1985-95) features the best of Canada's Garage Rock Revival bands of the 80s and early 90s.
I wish I knew more about it, other than it's a great collection of the genres you see listed here.

Album description:
Everything you ever wanted to hear from Oswalt Kolle and other sex-education-movies of the 1960s and 70s 30 years after the last movie of Germany's leading sex-educater Oswalt Kolle was shown in the German cinemas, we now present a never before available comprehensive compilation to this cinematic phenomenon: the sex-education-movie. This compilation contains the best tunes from the Oswalt Kolle movies and his rip-offs which have been made in the years 1967 to 1973, e.g. Oswalt Kolle: Zum Beispiel Ehebruch, Oswalt Kolle: Das Wunder Der Liebe 2, Oswalt Kolle: Dein Kind, Das Unbekannte Wesen, Die Sexuellen Wünsche Der Deutschen, Junge Leute Wollen Lieben, Liebe In 3 Dimensionen, Sex Pervers, Hausfrauen-Report International, Geheimtechniken Der Sexualität, Sex-Träume-Report, Ehepaar Sucht Gleichgesinntes, Van de Velde: Die Vollkommene Ehe.
The CD contains 20 catchy tracks, nearly all of them previously unreleased, which show the entire stylistic range of the ending 60s and arising 70s: big-band-soul, easy listening, dirt-rock, funk guitars, lounge jazz and orgiastic psychedelic beats answer all "sound questions" the Germans were afraid to ask.
Besides Heinz Kiessling, the leading composer of the Oswalt Kolle - movies, such well known artists as Peter Schirmann, Kristian Schultze or Maurice Pop delivered stylish sounds for naked facts.
A very quirky album with some really catchy grooves. Some of these have actually appeared on Hit The Brakes already but now you can have the whole CD at your disposal when you need to set the mood. Or you can listen to it for it's genuine funk vibes. Enjoy the CD!!

Best known for their Yes-like prog work in the '70s, the Czech Republic's Blue Effect were formed in the late '60s, when that nation was still tied politically and geographically to its Slovak neighbor during the Cold War. Led by the renowned guitarist Radim Hladik, Blue Effect first came to prominence as an R&B-influenced rock act with their first two albums, 1969's Meditace and 1970's Coniunctio. It was at this point that the Soviet-backed government stepped in and forced the band to alter its name to reflect a more "Czecho-Slovak" heritage. Now dubbed Modry Efekt (and, at times, M Efekt), the band began to venture into the more progressive rock elements that would define — for many — the true identity of the group. By 1975, the sounds of British prog had taken full root in the sound of the band, in addition to solidifying Hladik as one of his country's top rock guitar virtuosos. The prog — and the continued growth of Hladik's skill — progressed on two follow-up full-lengths, 1977's Svitanie and 1979's Svet Hledacu, but the band had seemingly fully exhausted itself with regard to the sound that had won it so many converts. Proof of this new direction was to be found in the much more middle-of-the-road effort of 1981, 33, which was also notable as being the last release from the band. While the band quietly folded, Hladik continued to hone his skill and ply his trade. In 2004, with the release of a Blue Effect best-of compilation entitled Beatová Sín Slávy, the band — now fully under Hladik's leadership — began to hit stages in the Czech Republic. A live effort, Blue Effect: Live, was also released around the same time, and was a Top Five chart hit.
