Ranmadou (Japan 1972)

I still don't know a frigging thing about this excellent Japanese blues-rock group and am having a hell of a time finding any information about them on the web. This is their second (and last?) album from 1972 and is a much more restrained effort than their 1971 Summer record. A must for Blues Creation fans. As always: enjoy.

Thanks, Crotchbat - I had this, but not the first album.

You're right about the Blues Creation connection - Ranmadou is an offshoot of the pre-Blues Creation band called "The Vickies". You'll find some good info on them here and here's a Pete Frame of the Blues Creation family.

Cheers

Have another DL of theirs, and don't know much about them either except they flat frickin rock! Excellent guitar.

Thanks!

It pains me to say, but I don't think this link is working anymore.

Sorry about the dead link - tried to find another link on the web, but no luck. Don't know when I'll be able to re-up this one - been laid up at home for several weeks. Hope to get to it ASAP.

There is a working link at the fantastic Japanese Old Prog/Psych Rock blog - be sure to check out their archives for a metric ton of great music.
