Hello Marios, even tho I grew up in the era and played in a series of garage bands I had never heard of this group. There were so many albums released in the 60's and 70's there was no way to learn of them all so now in my retirement I'm playing catch-up. Thanks for this wonderful blog.

I grew up listening to a promo copy of the original The Churls album; however, it does not say when the songs were recorded or released. The base riff towards the end of "Crystal Palace" is the exact same as Cream's "Sunshine of your Love," and I am trying to determine which band wrote it you have any confirmed dates for the Churls album? Much thanks. Glad someone else likes this music.

Marry Christmas.

Thank you for the quick change, but I still cannot open it. Now there are three file, hot files and deposit files and both just click and will not open. Seems we are getting closer though.

Marios said...

Just checked and the files are working, don't know what to say,
link-safe is clickable and after that you have just click upon the word: open link
you'll immediately redirect to the download link (may you have some proble with your browser or the pop-up blocker), anyway try it and if that doesn't work I'll send you the direct links via e-mail.

Ok I figured it out, I have to hold down the Ctrl kep while clicking the Hot file link. Works now. AWESOME - Thanks

Thanks a lot. i was born in the early 70s, but an older friend of mine had the vinyl (of the first Churls record) since those days, and gave me a cassette copy some 12 years ago. Still have the tape, but i had been looking for a digital version unsuccessfully, until now. (I believe the riff from sunshine of your love in here is a quotation, but i'm not sure)
Greetings from Guatemala.

So cool to find this. I have both the original albums on vinyl. In the mid-70s I was fortunate enough to meet lead guitarist Harry (Hal) Ames and jam with him a couple of times. Really nice guy and a very talented guitar player. Some fond memories associated with these songs. Thanks for posting.
