Welcome

elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Electric Prunes - Stockholm 67


Stockholm 67 is some kind of a miracle. This is a previously unreleased performance from a nearly unknown US band 37 years ago, back when live recordings barely existed. Well, the sound is astonishing. It could have been recorded in the nineties, you wouldn't tell the difference. And when it comes to music, it's even more amazing. It's raw rock'n'roll, with a light garage touch, strong vocal performance and incredible guitar sound. The band fully captures the essence of British sound and adds to it a bit of American roughness. The Electric Prunes even outperform the Yardbirds on the cover version of Smokestack Lightning. Second only to The Who's Live At Leeds for what regards live albums. (Year of Release: 1967)

Track List:
1. You Never Had It Better
2. I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)
3. Try Me On For Size
4. I Happen To Love You
5. I Got My Mojo Workin'
6. Long Day's Flight (Til' Tomorrow)
7. Smokestack Lightning
8. Get Me To The World On Time

Great stuff, Glad I paid the extra at the time, and got the double vinyl of this, classic album, time to put it on my H/D I think
