One different side by expressyourselve....

It’s been a bit longer time since my last mix, with One different side is the gap closed and in certain way the direction given away from funk and soul music.

It was taking me a bit more time to get to One different side, I made lot of rehearing and some other private stuff, so that in next time will be at least in some over viewing time period new mixes.

Was a hell of work to go through approximate two thousand albums, I think around some 5 gb (exct. 517 songs) of music is now in folder rock on desktop….

So for sure their will be in coming time rock, progressive rock, blues rock and boogie woogie mixes as main topic, from the late 60’s to late the 70’s and early 80's….


Why one different side, ha, the name when you compare the music groups and hear the songs, except Focus and Popol Vuh, are quite unusual songs for the certain rock bands….

You wouldn’t expect that name behind the song.

But their is a bit more then that, their is a kind of thiny red line through this mix, individual for each and any of us....

So I hope you will still enjoy further my choice that I shared with….

So let us take a short look to the bands in this mix…. 


Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in 1969 by Ozzy Osbourne (lead vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass guitar), and Bill Ward (drums), originally formed in 1968 as a heavy blues rock band named Earth and renamed to Black Sabbath in 1969. 
Despite an association with occult and horror themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social instability, political corruption, and the dangers of drug abuse an apocalyptic prophesies of the horrors of war. They were ranked by MTV as the "Greatest Metal Band" of all time, and placed second in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" list, behind Led Zeppelin. Rolling Stone called the band "the heavy-metal kings of the '70s".



Black Sabbath was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. The song Pluff you can find on the 1973 album Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.





Focus is a Dutch rock band which was founded by classically trained organist/flautist Thijs van Leer in 1969.

Van Leer, Akkerman, Van der Linden, and Havermans where in 1971 the new lineup of Focus.



In 1974, Van der Linden was replaced by ex-Stone the Crows drummer Colin Allen.



In 1976, frustrated with group's lack of direction and the constraints of working with its commercial ambitions, Akkerman left on the eve of a sell-out UK tour. His last minute replacement was Belgian jazz-fusion guitarist Philip Catherine.

American singer P. J. Proby, drummer Steve Smith (later of Journey) and guitarist Eef Albers joined in 1978 Philip Catherine and the rest of Focus. After a short tour the band decided to call it quits.

Much of Beck's recorded output has been instrumental, with a focus on innovative sound and his releases have spanned genres ranging from blues-rock, heavy metal, jazz fusion and an additional blend of guitar-rock and electronica.

He was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and the magazine has described him as "one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock".
