About the show

Playing tracks by

Lighthouse, May Blitz, Jade Warrior, Patto, Dr. Z and more.

In the late sixties and early seventies almost every major record company set out to intiate one or more subsidiary labels whose aim was to consider rock music as a serious form of art. The Vertigo Swirl label founded by Mercury Records (Philips) in 1969 was the one which most consistently embodies this concept for this style of music. This is probably the reason why the Vertigo releases became some of the most collactable records of Rock, comparable to Blue Note for Jazz.

For this Crate, I dug out some rare LP's, aside from the well-known releases by Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep, which portrait the musical spectrum of the label, which covers Progressive Rock, Fusion, Folk, Electronic and Hardrock as well as Jazz and Afrofunk! You will discover Samples used for productions by Action Bronson, Madlib and Madvillain...
