The Music Machine: Ignition (1965-69, Compilation,Rare Recordings)

The Music Machine's debut album contained the U.S. hit Talk Talk and a number of other strong original compositions, notably Masculine Intuition, Wrong and Trouble. Bonniwell's harsh voice was ideal for much of this material and for a while the group achieved some success. Their debut album also featured competent versions of Hey Joe, ? and The Mysterians' 96 Tears, the Beatles' Taxman and Neil Diamond's Cherry Cherry.

The People In Me/Masculine Intuition 45 was also taken from their debut album and Hey Joe was subsequently issued as a 45. However, not everything was presumably going smoothly and the second album was issued after the band had split. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and New Mexico it comprised three outtakes from the earlier album and some new material.

Introduction necesary ? Well... what we have here... Great compilation with rare demos from 65 til 69. Theres a good review from Sundazed:

Ignition finds the Music Machine, single-black-gloved and snarling, back in the garage, inhaling too much exhaust and exhaling these 19 tracks (14 tracks on High-Definition Vinyl LP), exhumed with intensity intact. This long-awaited third Music Machine album features rare tracks-12 previously unheard-ranging from their pre-"Talk Talk" demos from 1965 as the Ragamuffins to their final 1969 experimental recordings. Includes track annotations by group leader Sean Bonniwell and Music Machine expert Mike Stax.

these guys were simply GREAT. Talk Talk is an absolute classic. Too bad they didn't get the chance (or didn't take the chance) to stay together and do more in this vein. Love their work. Thanks Pablo and hope all is well.
