Welcome to my blog - Rare, original & hard to get music is the demand of that blog here. If a record is still available through mailorders I won't post it (but I make exceptions if I get the feeling the dealers force up the prices). Enjoy the music and...

Moving Sidewalks - ZZ's Houston Roots
[Texas Rockmusic Heritage] (1967-69)


This Houston band was most famous to be later evolved into the first ZZ Top line-up. Garage fans love them for their singles, most notably "99th Floor", their lone album "Flash" is highly praised by heavy-psych enthusiasts. This CD (Lone Star Records LSR 19629 / 1994) contains most of their singles (sadly they only took an unreleased take of "99th Floor" and omitted the official release) with alternate versions and the whole album (the tracks are not in the right order, though) plus three unreleased tracks of whom the moody "Stay Away" is the best. Furthermore you can read an interview with the band done in the '60s shortly before the release of "Flash".

Tracklist:
- 99th Floor (alternate version)
- Every Night A New Surprise
- Lucille (unreleased)
