Uncharted Waters Volume 34: Famous Music

Greetings again - I've returned with some more cool tracks in a relatively timely manner. Gasp!

This volume focuses on the various labels that fell under the Famous Music banner in the late 60s and early 70s - Paramount, Dot, Viva, Family Productions, etc.  Paramount in particular is one of my favorite labels to collect, as there's plenty of obscure bands on there but releases aren't usually too difficult to find or pricey.  Hopefully you will enjoy these as much as I enjoyed discovering them.

  5. So much great stuff here. thank you again for your efforts. Any chance of a reup on the dead zippy file links?

  6. Another superb collection, 85% of which is new to me. Interesting to hear the Dovells (of Bristol Stomp fame) keeping up with the times in 1971. I'm REALLY enjoying these label-focused compilations. Keep up the fine work! Best wishes from South Texas....
