ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The sophomore effort by the British band, Supertramp, “Indelibly Stamped,” came out on June 25, 1971. The album bore little resemblance to their freshman release but showed that the band was becoming much more creative and working with a variety of themes. The band now consisted of Rick Davies (keyboards, vocals, harmonicas), Roger Hodgson (guitars, backing and lead vocals), Dave Winthrop (saxophones, flutes, vocals), Frank Farrell (bass, keyboards, vocals), and Kevin Currie (drums and percussion). If you have not yet checked into this venerable, long-lived British rock band, we hope that you will simply by visiting whatever site it is you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
[i] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years. One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.
[ii] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason. The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016. This offering also included Blind Faith. We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.
[iii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014. Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates. You will be glad you did. Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker. We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.
[iv] We hope to celebrate the music of the Everly Brothers one day.
[v] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012. Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.
