Beast - Beast (1969 us, fantastic psych jazz rock, 2010 edition)

Beast's debut album is a crossline between psych and brass rock. The band offers great moments, some cool jazz rock and relaxed psychedelia, with intense glimpses of progressive rock. There are also moments when the band goes through creative experimental fields, looking for their identity in the musical whirlwind of the late 60's. Although the album has different influences, it manage to stand at a high level, creating the foundations for their great forthcoming second release.

Hi Marios, thanks for share this amazing music, but the pass for free text is imposible to find, I don´t get the game yet, can you help me? Thanks!

Marios, thanks for everything you do, of course! The Smartchatbox is not very smart with Chrome browser. It will accept the valid username and password but will not display the chat contents or private chat. If I use Internet Explorer it works fine. I see in the comments that some others are having issues too. Perhaps there is another chat-box that would be more compatible? PS - i disabled every Chrome extension and it still would not behave properly. Thanks!
