I recently made a compilation for the guys over at the Sludge Swamp (blog I encourage you to follow), and I thought, "what the hell" I will share it with my Gomies®, since they appear to like compilations like the one posted below. Let me tell you that it is a little bit twisted, though most of the tracks have been posted here.
Cheers my friends, have a great year.

After some digging around, I found that I do indeed have an infection. When I create a RAR file, I end up with a Screen Saver file, of the same name, in another folder. While I'm taking care of this nuisance, I went ahead and re-upped the FUNKADELIC, MINUTEFLAG and BOB SEGER albums in ZIP format. Please let me know if there are any problems.

Again, not typical G.O.M.E. fare, but a long-forgotten hard rock gem. Despite interest from fans over the course of 35 years, Back in '72 has never been issued on CD. There's a lot here to appreciate, and not just the original studio version of "Turn the Page". Bob's take on the ALLMANS' great "Midnight Rider" is more Motown boogie and southern blues, while "Rosalie" was covered by Thin Lizzy just two years later. The title track features some excellent riffing from none other than J.J. Cale, while "Neon Sky" makes you want to track Bob down in Detroit and get him on your own songs. All in all, this is a great rock record that has somehow evaded the CD generation. And if I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times: IF IT'S TOO OLD, YOU'RE TOO LOUD!
1. Midnight Rider
2. So I Wrote You a Song
5. Turn the Page
6. Back in '72
7. Neon Sky
8. I've Been Working
9. I've Got Time
This admittedly isn't standard G.O.M.E. fare, but those of you who know me are well aware of my love of the '80s indie scene, the music of BLACK FLAG and the MINUTEMEN in particular. This collaboration between the SST heavyweights took place in 1985, while the MINUTEMEN had recently finished their Project Mersh EP, and BLACK FLAG was recording Loose Nut. The bands agreed that the MINUTEFLAG sessions wouldn't be released until one of the bands split. Within months, the legendary D. Boon was killed in a car accident, effectively putting an end to the mighty MINUTEMEN. To date, SST hasn't issued this small piece of rock history on CD.
1. Fetch the Water
2. Power Failure
4. Candy Rush
There really aren't enough superlatives in the dictionary to do this album justice. Free Your Mind... is an absolute masterpiece, and its influence spans PRINCE to CLUTCH and all points in between. My sole complaint was always that the production on this album is downright dismal. Fear not, though, as this set has been tweaked and adjusted by yours truly for your listening pleasure. From the 10-minute acid freakout title track, through the classic "Friday Night, August 14th" and Eddie Hazel's amazing leadwork on "I Wanna Know if It's Good to You?", Funkadelic's Free Your Mind...and Your Ass Will Follow is absolutely essential to any rock fan's collection.
1. Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow
2. Friday Night, August 14th
3. Funky Dollar Bill
4. I Wanna Know if It's Good to You?
5. Some More
6. Eulogy and Light

Hey hey, GOMIES, greetings from the 13th Floor! I've been gone for quite awhile, and hopefully you've all been well during my absence. I also hope you're still checking G.O.M.E., because Matias has posted some great stuff during my sabbatical.
I'll be posting some killer records over the next few days, and ELEVATED RADIO will be once again destroying entire civilizations before the end of the year.
I just wanted to drop a quick line and let you guys know to stay tuned, for you are about the witness the awesome power of a fully-operational mothership.
