"I hope for nothing, I fear nothing, I am free"

Everything that has a beginning, has an ending,

we created the blogs with love for music and our respect to the artists,

we buy records, research, write, scan and try to give the best we can,

we want to make unknown and lesser known artists more familiar to wider audiences.

Thank you all my friends for your support.


There's an asshole who simply copy and paste our posts, do something by yourself jerk, it's easy, don't be lazy.

Big Foot - Big Foot (1968 us, awesome early prog, jazz brass rock, Vinyl edition)



Big Foot were formed in Los Angeles California in 1967 and consisted of Art Munson (guitar, vocals), Virgil Beckham (bass, vocals), Gerard Belisle (trumpet, trombone, vocals), Spencer Earnshaw (drums), David Garland (organ, trumpet, saxophone, vocals). 

Munson had previously been a back-up musician for the Righteous Brothers while the other members played in various groups in and around Orange County. One such group was the Soul Brothers which included Beckham and Belisle who while cruising the Sunset Strip, came up with the name Big Foot, after the ape-like creature that roamed the remote mountain areas of the Pacific Northwest. 

The band played the Los Angeles area which included gigs at the Whisky-A-Go-Go and the Pussy Cat-A-Go-Go in Vegas while entertaining recording contract offers.
