BOOTBOY DISCOTHEQUE-14 BOVVER ROCK BRUISERS 1969-1979- Label:STAG O LEE If you went down the wrong alleyway, took a shortcut through the park or crossed the wrong open space after dark in the UK in the 1970s, you stood a fair chance of being accosted by someone with a big mouth, low morals and some gurning mates to impress, usually reeking of fags and cheap booze and always ready to put the boot in. And, before you could say, "sickening violence", a short but chaotic scuffle would ensue and a winner eventually emerge, battle scarred and bruised. The boot boy was the worst kind of hooligan. There wasn't anything you could do or say to appease him. You had the same chance as a fly caught up in a spider's web. Zero. Your best bet was to run. COMP LP $22 SKU:23522

FOREVER AMBER-The Love Cycle Label:GUERSSEN A Holy Grail item for psychedelic pop aficionados, Forever Amber’s The Love Cycle is, along with Dark and the first Complex album, one of a triumvirate of must-have private pressings from the UK.Sounding like a blend of Pet Sounds and Odessey & Oracle but with a charming, homemade, lo-fi vibe, The Love Cycle was a concept album masterminded by talented songwriter / arranger John M.

BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD- 4 CD BOX SET 2001 release with 80 page book w rare photosLabel:RHINO MARKED OUT BAR CODE, NOT SHRINK WRAPPED BUT MINT

DOOBIE BROTHERS- Long Train Runnin- 4 CD BOX SET with BOOKLET Label:RHINO MARKED OUT BAR CODE BUT SEALED -One would be hard-pressed to find a band more perfectly symbolic of the good-times politics-be-damned esprit de cannabis that symbolized a good chunk of 70's rock. While the Beach Boys were busy becoming an anachronism, the Doobs effectively took their mantle, fusing an array of musical Americana--be it blues, country, folk, or gospel (they saved jazz and funk for their Michael McDonald-fronted incarnation)--into a remarkably popular string of albums and radio hits by simply asking not much more of us than to "Listen to the Music." And if they didn't get much more controversial than to declare "Jesus Is Just Alright," well, that was kind of the point. This Rhino anthology is typically exhaustive. All the familiar radio hits are here, as well as a good sampling of deep catalog from the band's various line-ups, not to mention a few standout Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons solo outings. Hardcore Doobie Bros. fans should be especially pleased by the fourth disc, which contains a wealth of outtakes and demos from the band's early '70s and '80s prime. --Jerry McCulley CD $30 SKU:23799

RED SPEKTOR- HEART OF THE RENEWED SUN (heavy psych stoners!) Label:KOZMIK ARTIFACTZ Much revered psychedelic stoners Red Spektor return to the fold with their mesmerising sophomore album. Hailing from Stoke-on-Trent, this heavy rock trio has crafted a hard-hitting valve driven sound loaded with layers of psychedelic blues, which tips its cap to the late '60s and early '70s. In taking cues from early Sabbath and Purple, underpinned by the intoxicating flow of Jimi Hendrix and the musicality of Fleetwood Mac, Red Spektor have developed a solid live reputation and many loyal followers. CD $17 SKU:23684

SEE NO EVILS - INNER VOICES (60s style garage pop)Label:HEAVY SOUL The debut-album from exciting Leeds-based 4-piece The See No Evils. Here are twelve tracks that deliver a sound rooted in '60s pop and energetic garage, though a modern twist keeps the tunes from retrogression. The two previous singles have proven that the band takes influences from many genres and eras, be it '50s B-movies scores, '60s garage rock, or '70s punk - not one track sounds the same. Expect chiming guitars, impassioned vocals and songs that just won't leave your head CD $18 SKU:23726

SINGAPORE NUGGETS- THE LADIES (60s and 70s pop and fuzz garage!)

SPIRITS & WORM-ST (RARE 1969 West coast style psych)Label:AUDIO CLARITY he only album released by psychedelic quintet Spirits & Worm is the stuff of confused legend. The group conjured the kind of sound heavily associated with the West Coast style of psychedelia, as mastered by San Francisco-based Jefferson Airplane. But Spirits & Worm was based in Long Island, New York, laying down the tracks for this A&M release at Bill Stahl's Ultrasonic Studios in Hempstead, where Iron Butterfly and Vanilla Fudge cut most of their work. Spirits & Worm featured chief songwriter Carlos Hernandez on fiery lead guitar, Tommy Parris on subdued bass and vocals, Artie Hicles Junior on drums, with Alfred Scotti on rhythm guitar and vocals, and adding to the Jefferson Airplane reference, the emotive tones of Adrianne Maurici. Despite the album being a fine set of songs dealing, sex, death and other grand relationship themes, the album was pulled from the shelves almost immediately after the first copies were circulated in the New York area, the legend having it that A&M executives were shocked and dismayed by the image of two goats resting on a grave as the front cover, fearing occult references in an era riven by Manson Family hysteria and the situation of a Zodiak Killer at large. The album has been renedered exceedingly rare, this welcome reissue placing it more readily into reach. LP $22 SKU:23720

RESTOCKED

ATHANOR - Flashback (Beatle'esque, fuzzed-out psych) Label:GUERSSEN Chicago, early 70s. Greg Herriges is obsessed with Lennon, 12-string guitars and far-out psychedelic sounds. Rick Vittenson is a Beach Boys-Hollies-Who fanatic who writes for Crawdaddy! magazine. Both had previously played in several garage-college bands during the 60s. Combining their mutual love for Sixties music, Athanor was born. With the help of top studio musicians, they recorded and self-released three 45s between 1973 and 1975 (the first one produced by Mark Breyer, with whom Rick had played in pre-Skooshny band Brevity) which are now highly sought-after by fans of obscure psychedelic pop. All of them are featured here in stellar sound taken from the master tapes along with previously unreleased studio tracks and superb sounding home demos (1973-1981), plus a new song recorded in 2006 in the same vein as their vintage recordings. Athanors music features impressive songwriting & musicianship, a collision of Beatlesque harmony vocals, Rickenbacker & Guild 12-string guitars, occasional fuzz-wah leads, Fender Rhodes, studio effects.Psychedelic proto-power pop highly recommended to anyone into Lazy Smoke, Badfinger, Only Ones, Emitt Rhodes, Rockin Horse, Creme Soda.. Remastered sound from the original master tapes, booklet with rare pictures and liner notes by Mark Breyer from cult psych-power pop band Skooshny.CD $19 SKU:23552

BAD ACID- Revelations Of The Third Eye (Heavy Psych/Occult Rock )-Label:OZIUM Bad Acid (two former members of MAMONT) delivers a flawless debut album that totally shows just what this bandis capable of.

COLLAGE -ST -UNKNOWN 1971 MYSTERY BAND! Label:GEAR FAB This is a weird one kids, even the owner of GEAR FAB doesnt know what it is!!! He says all he knows is that a company in Japan had him put it out. It’s NOT the same as the Texas band on Smash, which we had assumed it was. This one takes whitebread easy-listening to a whole new level! These guys did NOT take acid! Maybe not even a cup of coffee! CD $10 SKU:19912

COUNTRY FUNK -ST (1970 psych/blues/country) Label:SLIPSTREAM First released in May 1970, Country Funk's debut was a confident and heady mix of psych, blues rock and country rock. Despite achieving little success in their day, 40 years on the "Funkers" are now highly regarded, finally achieving the credit that they were originally denied. The 'Country Funk'-LP was released in May 1970 after a few name and line up changes, plus a short prison sentence. At the album's heart lie the influences of Buffalo Springfield, Poco and a dose of hairy Byrds, Moby Grape and the Dead. Although not a classic, this loosely groovin' but tight collection of songs moves along nicely with genuine heart and soul." Country Funk's debut has been newly packaged with extensive liner notes, unpublished photos and 4 unreleased bonus tracks, and four 1967 cuts from earlier outfit ADAM including the superb Bee Gees like 'Woman' (later covered by Pure Prairie League) and the trippy 'Melrose Street 5829' (which easily rivals anything Emitt Rhodes cut around this time). CD $14 SKU:23525

CYKLE - Featuring the Young Ones (US 60s PSYCH LEGENDS! - Label:GEAR FAB Reissue taken from the original masters by USA PSYCH-LEGENDS 'Cykle'. Included here all of their 1969 album + 4 tracks by THE YOUNG ONES (pre-CYKLE) and 3 solo trax by Jim Sossman (leader of the group CD $10 SKU:19324

DEEP SIX-IT'S HAPPENING((Hollies/Beatles/Who style pure 60s mod) Label:HEAVY SOUL After a string of limited 7" vinyl singles The Deep Six return with a second album of pure 60s mod coolness. Featuring the song-writing skills of Mark McGounden of the highly regarded Makin 'Time and Upper Fifth and Paul Hooper-Keeley from The Threads the album is jam-packed with nods to The Hollies, Beatles, Who and Small Faces whilst keeping it fresh enough to be a powerhouse live. "It's Happening" is available as a digipack including 8-page booklet. CD $17 SKU:21659

DOMNICKS - Super Real (Stems DM3 Someloves)Label:CITADEL digipack Their debut album Super Real marks a coming of age for The DomNicks. Forged by Perth based Dom Mariani and Nick Sheppard, the band is a powerful blend of swagger 'n' roll rock, soul and pop smarts. Mariani is best known as the driving force behind The Stems, DM3 and The Someloves, while Sheppard's pedigree boasts 80's Bristol punks The Cortinas and thereafter as Mick Jones' replacement in the 1983-86 line-up of The Clash. In 2007 the pair teamed up with Howard Shawcross (The Elks, The Riptides) on bass and Marz Frisina on drums, quickly developing into a very 'hang loose' combo. Playing a mix of Dom and Nick's originals with a spread of 60's and 70's garage and soul classics, they are a band of seasoned players punching well above their collective musical weight. Super Real continues in the tradition of The DomNicks' previous recording, Hey Rock 'n' Roller (Off The Hip 2009). Expanding on Hey Rock 'n' Roller's gutsy guitar driven sound, Super Real takes a ride through blues, soul, funk, and classic guitar pop influences to create one seamless musical journey fuelled by the vim and vigour of a noble era. Among the 12 tracks you'll find the Exile era Stones' sound of Reconcile, the brazen brass and swing of Let's Go Baby, soul flavours in I Wonder What You're Doin' Now, the straight ahead rollicking of Miracle and tantalising twists and turns of the electric sitar driven Winter. It's bound to cause the head and heart to shake. CD $12 SKU:14597

GIUDA-LET'S DO IT AGAIN (70s glam rock)Label:BURNING HEART A reissue of the second album by the Italian quintet Giuda, the greatest '70s glam-rock band to exist since... the 1970s. CD $14 SKU:23311

GREEN PAJAMAS- SUMMER OF LUST (former Bomp band!) -Label:GREEN MONKEY In 1984 Jeff Kelly and Joe Ross recorded a mess of songs on a 4-track reel-to-reel up in Joe's attic. They released it locally as a cassette, 'Summer Of Lust'. If you hear the Pajamas referred to as psyche-anything it springs from here. We are making Summer of Lust available to the public for the first time in twenty-two years. About time. What you get here is two young guys filled with wild inspiration. Nothing slick. Nothing professional. Just beautiful. How did we get here? GMR Prez Dyer bought the cassette in 1984. Loved it. Called em up. Re-released the cassette. In 1989, Greg Shaw from Bomp started Ubik records in the UK and released it on vinyl to underground acclaim. After that, obscurity. Joe Ross has threatened to release it on his own Endgame label for years, but the threats were idle. 2012 is time to get it done. Remastered by Tom Dyer and Joe Ross, Summer of Lust shows Kelly and Ross at the brilliant stepping off point for over twenty-five albums to come. Raw. Simple and complex at the same time. If you love The Green Pajamas, you need this. If this is your first time, start the grand adventure here. Release features extensive liner notes. New video for I Feel That Way All The Time made from vintage footage. CD $16 SKU:23693

GREEN SEAGULL- Cloud Cover (60s pop Left Banke, The Kinks style)Label:MEGA DODO Cloud Cover' sees Green Seagull develop their fascination for melodic sixties pop and combine it with glorious vocal harmonies to create a mellow Stateside vibe filtered through early '70s UK acts like Brinsley Schwarz and Danny Kirwan-era Fleetwood Mac. Their shared enthusiasm for late '60s baroque psychedelia and 12-string jangle has blossomed into a prolific songwriting team that now includes contributions from their keyboardist Sarah Gonputh. CD $16 SKU:23523

LATE, THE -SONGS FROM THE FAMILY TREE (1967 HOllies inspired) Label:WOODEN HILL Although harmony-based British soft rock act Unicorn didnt release their superb debut album, 'Uphill All The Way', until mid-1971, the core of the band had been playing together, principally as the Late, for several years. Taken from previously unreleased acetates and studio tapes, 'Songs From The Family Tree' charts the groups hitherto-undocumented progress from 1967 to 1969 as they slowly evolved from their original, Hollies-inspired psychedelic pop direction to create a more individual identity. With comprehensive liner notes, quotes and numerous photographs, 'Songs From The Family Tree' is an essential item for Unicorn fans and admirers of late Sixties British pop alike CD $17 SKU:23320

LOVE SCULPTURE -ANOTHER HELPING (1968 w DAVE EDMUNDS).Label:VOGON Love Sculpture was Dave Edmunds, David William Edwards and John David. When they recorded 'Sabre Dance' for John Peel, who was so impressed that he played it twice in one programme, on 6th October 1968, it became an unexpected hit. At the time the band had only recorded it as a session track, but, as producer Bernie Andrews recalled (in Ken Garner, The Peel Sessions, p.57), after Peel had enthused over it, the piece was re-recorded and rush-released by Parlophone Records and reached number five in the singles chart, eight weeks after being first heard on Top Gear. Love Sculpture recorded three sessions, made up mainly of blues and rock'n'roll cover versions, for Peel, two in 1968 and one in 1969, but were unable to repeat the success of their only hit, despite attempting another rock version of a classical piece, Georges Bizet's 'Farandole', in their final session. This album contains all but one of the songs they recorded for John Peel. After they split up, leader Dave Edmunds continued to perform in a rock'n'roll influenced style, had a successful career in the 1970s both as a solo artist and with his group Rockpile, and picked up airplay on Peel's shows CD $17 SKU:23524

PERMANENT CLEAR LIGHT -COSMIC COMICS (superb psych pop)Label:SULATRON A superb psychedelic pop album by Finland's number one band for phantastic earworms in a psychedelic way! Permanent Clear Light is often referred to as Finland's top psychedelic group. They released their debut album, 'Beyond These Things', in 2014 to a high critical acclaim. After that, the group has released several singles, EPs and appeared on a number of compilation albums on the British Fruits de Mer label. Although PCL's musical roots lie in '60s psychedelia their sound is strictly contemporary. The trio considers the recording studio their main instrument, and their sound is characterised by multi-layered instrumental work and strong melodic vocals. After a creative break, PCL is finally ready to release its second album, 'Cosmic Comics', which shows that the band has travelled a long way through the spheres since their debut. Mastering for all tracks by Eroc. CD in gatefold digisleeve, limited to 500 copies CD $18 SKU:23400

SHOCK ST (obscure 70s garage psych) - Label:GUERSSEN (Spain) previously-unreleased -a Major discovery in the Spanish Psych-Prog collector scene: a previously unreleased album from 1970 by this obscure Spanish garage-psych band . Until now, Shock were a total mystery. They only released one 45 back at the time (the killer acid-fuzz punker "No se puede ser Superman") and nothing was known about the band...until we tracked them down. We discovered that prior to their 45 release, they recorded a whole album which was never released. Shock's music is underground garage-psychedelia with crude acid-fuzz guitar, effects, English vocals...think of Agua de Regaliz, early Pan & Regaliz, Cerebrum or even obscure Brazilian bands such as Tobruk but with a more primitive sound. The album features ten songs including the original versions of the two tracks later re-recorded for their only 45: "No se puede ser Superman" (titled here "I'm being mad", it's a different and superior English sung version) and "I want to laugh" (a longer version than the one included on the 45). Remastered from the original 2-track tape (which is unfortunately not in perfect condition, but more than good enough). CD comes with colour booklet. album from 1970 by this obscure Spanish garage-psych band., including an insert with detailed liner notes in English/Spanish. CD comes with a color booklet.

A coherent album full of twangy guitars, dreamy vocals, sitar and groovy rhythms. Several tracks feature the immensely talented organist Erik 'Errka' Petersson of Siena Root and Dean Allen Foyd. CD $16 SKU:23064

Now extremely rare as an original pressing. This new, band-approved reissue features the fully restored album in sparkling sound quality and adds an extra 100 minutes of music, nearly all of which is previously unreleased. Among the highlights are the magnificent heavy psychedelia of the bands aborted early 1968 Pye single Which Way/My Way Of Thinking, the theme song to the cult Italian spy caper Ypotron, a couple of movie collaborations with soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone, and even an entire late 1968 demo album that, following the departure of two group members, was eventually scrapped and replaced by Old Songs New Songs! Completed by a previously unheard live gig from 1980 that proved the Sorrows savage garage band instincts were fully intact a decade later, this package features new, extremely detailed sleevenotes concerning their time in Italy, with fresh band quotes and some superb, previously unpublished photos. Forget what you may have read and heard elsewhere, this incredible 2CD package is the final word on the bands lengthy but previously little-documented Italian sojourn! CD $19 SKU:10207

MORE KICKS - ST (power pop style) Label:BELUGA More Kicks is an explosion of pop melodies, jet-fuelled guitar riffs and shifting, sinewy rhythms. The band arrived from nowhere -seemingly fully formed- at the end of 2017 on London's garage scene. They immediately stood out a mile thanks to their unique mix of pop sensibilities, rhythm & blues bass and good-time powerpop drums. Hidden away making loud music in tiny rooms, the trio (Sulli - vox/guitar; Kris - drums; Paolo - bass/vox) had been busy cooking up a rare alchemy. The result: a two-and-a-half-minute More Kicks song can touch on classic '60s garage, '70s NYC rock and roll, jagged '90s guitar pop - all wrapped in a razor sharp bundle. A glance backwards and a decisive step forward. LP $25 SKU:22281

PEABODY CO -ST (Late '60s acid-punk/garage-psych) Label:OUT-SIDER (Spain) for their freaked out ride down 'Tobbaco Road' (included on the now legendary 'A Fistful Of Fuzz' comp), Peabody Co. were a mysterious US band who left behind a set of 10" acetates, collected here for the first time. Late '60s acid-punk/garage-psych, featuring seven self-penned songs plus three terrific cover versions of 'I Can't Explain' (The Who), 'Let's Live For Today' (Rokes/Grass Roots) and the aforementioned 'Tobbaco Road' (based on the Blues Magoos cover but including an extended crazed theremin/drum freak out!).Recommended if you like The Bachs, Blues Magoos, Mystery Meat and the like... Carefully remastered sound by Tim Warren. Artwork with generic sleeve design, as the ones used by vanity/customs labels like Century in the '60s-'70s. LP $25 SKU:22834

SPARKLES -THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS Texas 60s garage (+7"/CD)-Label:JUKEBOX MUSIC FACTORY The Sparkles were associated with the garage-band and psychedelic rock scene of 1960s Texas, as epitomized by their classic underground hit 'No Friend Of Mine'. The line-up changed few times before 1962, and Stanley Smith finally recruit Harold "Lucky" Floyd (drums and vocals), Donnie Roberts (guitar) and Bobby Smith (bass). Their first recording was the single 'U.T.' under the small label Caron. This third incarnation proved a great hit among the clubs of West Texas, notably the Music Box and The Village Swinger. Indeed, in 2000, local legend Joe Ely described them as the "city's best rock'n'roll band" in the history of the Lubbock music scene published by Texas Monthly. Interestingly, The Sparkles boasted a pair of drummers, with one, the flamboyant Harold Floyd, also lending his voice to their performances. 1966 would constitute a turning point for The Sparkles. Larry Parks -drummer for Roy Orbison, turned producer in Nashville, Tennessee- invited them to sign with Hickory Records, the historic music label founded by Roy Acuff and Fred Rose in 1954. The band came up with 'The Hip', which proved an immediate hit in Austin and extremely popular within the fraternity scene at the University of Texas. On a roll, The Sparkles then recorded 'Something You Said' followed by 'Jack And The Beanstalk'. In 1967, The Sparkles, already a decade old, recorded their chef-d'oeuvre 'No Friend Of Mine', with Nunn's raging guitar riffs and Floyd's remarkably tense vocals. This fiery tour de force would be consecrated by its inclusion on the first CD set of the legendary compilation 'Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968'. Following their final single, 'Hipsville 29 B.C.', for Hickory Records, The Sparkles once again entered rocky waters, with Nunn and Holt finally deciding to throw in the towel in 1968. Floyd, Smith and Marriot immediately set sail for California, along the way renaming their group The Pearly Gate. This brief interlude would include a handful of appearances on the ABC sitcom 'Judd, For The Defense'. Legend has it, they were also scheduled to perform before Bobby Kennedy the evening of his tragic assassination on June 5th 1968... Returning to Texas, Floyd, Smith and Marriot resurrected The Sparkles, bringing into the fold Steve Weisberg, future guitarist for John Denver. But Floyd's departure in 1975 for California to join Red Wilder Blue spelled the end of this group's 15-year musical odyssey, a tumultuous journey typical of such modest rock'n'roll heroes posthumously crowned by multiple thematic compilations. However, the one you're now holding constitutes the very first anthology dedicated to these incredible Texans LP $28 SKU:21875

THUNDERTREE-ST (70s Mpls killer fuzzed out garage) Label:GUERSSEN Coming from the same Minneapolis '60s scene which spawned bands like The Litter, Thundertree evolved from garage band The Good Idea. In 1970 they released their sole album for the Roulette label: a perfect example of the transition from psychedelia to hard-rock and early progressive sounds. Killer fuzzed out guitar, organ, powerful vocals. Including hard-psych classics like 'In The Morning" or 'Room At The Top Of The Stairs' along with the monstruous 17 minute long '2025' suite. For this, the first ever legit vinyl reissue of Thundertree, the label included two previously unreleased tracks: 'Pepper Palace' (a great psychedelic number) plus a storming cover of 'Sixteen Tons', which was the signature song on Thundertree's live shows. Both tracks were recorded at UA Studios, Minneapolis, in 1970. An insert with lot of pictures and bio notes by Billy Hallquist (Thundertree, Persephone Billy) is also included. 24-Bit remastered sound. LP $29 SKU:23549

WEED DEMON CRATER MAKER (stoner rock) GOLD VINYLLabel:ELECTRIC VALLEY Not for the faint of heart, 'Crater Maker' launches with eleven minutes of instrumental stoner rock to set the mood. By the time you get to the devastating vocals of 'Serpent Merchant' you know you're in for a rare treat. Infused with bluesy roots and defined by a search for the perfect tone, 'Crater Maker' is a sonic quest like few others. Their worship of bands like Sleep and Electric Wizard is apparent throughout, but these Columbus, Ohio doomsters are clearly in touch with another side of themselves on this record. An album that rewards multiple listens, it promises to be a worthwhile listen for doom freaks across the globe. Electric Valley Records has once more signed a winner - are you ready to join them on the journey to this riff filled land? LP $25 SKU:23208
