R&B SPOTLIGHT #59-R&B and/or pop hits of 1959- DOUBLE CD Label:Fantastic Voyage huge sixty track compilation of R&B hits from 1959.Starting with Wilbert Harrison’s number one single 'Kansas City'; a multi instrumentalist and ex-member of the W C Baker group, which leads into 'Sea Cruise' from Frankie Ford, who, as a youngster worked with Sophie Tucker, among others. He also appeared in the 'American Hot Wax' movie.There’s Chuck Berry with 'Little Queenie' and 'Almost Grown', mini hits from rock N rolls most influential artist. Sarah Vaughan then joins the A-listers here, like Nat King Cole, Bo Diddley and Clyde McPhatter. Also known as Little Miss Share Cropper and Bea Baker, Lavern Baker’s input is 'So High So Slow' and "Tiny Timâ recorded for Atlantic...this is great stuff.By 1959 acts that had been previously confined to the black chart or R&B listing, were actually selling in sufficient quantities to hit the mainstream market. It was a long haul, of course, before they received the success they so deserved. But it happened. There were groups like The Cadillacs, formed during 1953 in Harlem, who were the first R&B unit to choreograph their stage acts. And, The Coasters, formed in 1955, and known for their serio-comic recordings. Plus loads more, like, for example, the first strains of a new dance craze 'The Twist' by Hank Hallard and the Midnighters (nah, it’ll never catch on!) and instrumentals from Paul Gayton, bandleader and vocalist. This cd is a history lesson for the young of heart, and a lovely trip down memory lane for those..um.. not so young COMP CD $10 SKU:19066

R&B SPOTLIGHT #60-R&B and/or pop hits of 1959- DOUBLE CD Label:Fantastic Voyage 60 tracks by various artists selected from the US charts of 1959. All of the songs were R&B and/or pop hits and many have become classics of the genre. The artists include such legends as Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, the Coasters, Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker, Nat King Cole and Sarah Vaughan. The collection, including full details of the original label issues, is the second of an ongoing year-by-year series representing the Rhythm & Blues charts. The informative booklet notes are authored by respected Echoes/Record Collector journalist Mike Atherton. This 1959 installment in the year-by-year R&B Spotlight series sees the increasing popularity of Rhythm & Blues, with many of the entries also crossing over to the pop charts. The R&B chart mixed successes from both one-hit wonders and fifties stars. R&B with the Rock and Roll beat was represented by Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Lloyd Price and Little Willie John. Harmony vocal group sounds abounded with notable sides from the Flamingos, the Skyliners, the Crests, the Five Satins and Richard Barrett with the Chantels. Uptempo group items, often with a comedy slant, were very popular and the Coasters, the Clovers, the Cadillacs, the Accents and the Genies are amongst the excellent selections here. The whole Twist craze had it s beginnings in this year with the release of the original version written and recorded by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters. Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker and Clyde McPhatter pointed the way for the future direction of R&B with their polished, New York-produced recordings. Bluesier items still appeared in the charts with winners from Jimmy Reed, Little Walter and Lightnin Slim. Instrumental charters included catchy items from Dave Baby Cortez, the Spacemen and Paul Gayten. Tremendous tracks including classic songs like ‘Kansas City,’ ‘Sea Cruise,’ ‘Charlie Brown,’ ‘The Twist,’ ‘Since I Don’t Have You’ and ‘Love Potion No. 9’, all included here. Nice shrink-wrapped slip-case packaging COMP CD $10 SKU:19067

"After years of searching, we have finally discovered a copy of this mega-rare garage LP from an unknown group from Missouri. From 1968, these guys did cover versions of the songs of their day even better than the original artists with a great fuzz garage sound! It is a true shame we do not know the names of these musicians, as the album provides us with no credits whatsoever to these truly talented guys. Mini-LP cardboard sleeve format. Also includes their ultra-rare 45 tracks." LP $17 SKU:14794

ASTRAL SCENES ASTRAL PROJECTION(1968 Pop/Psych- get out the lava lamps!) )Label:HIMALAYA This 1968 Pop/Psychedelic Rock album is just chock full spacey instrumentation and utilizes horns, woodwind, and string sections very much like those used in Sgt. Peppers. The theme of this release is based upon the thoughts and feelings experienced if one were to leave the physical body (Astral Projection) and become the spiritual embodiment (Astral Body). The Astral Body begins to go back into the physical body and causes one to think about The Astral Scene…..There are some very nice male and female vocals which are backed up by the great orchestration and this LP is one to set the lights down low on and turn on the Lava Lamps!!!

AURA- Sativa (1974 SF psych funk masterpiece) - Label:LION Official replica vinyl edition of this oft-sampled slab of Bay Area history, a psych funk masterpiece that cannot be denied. Aura formed in 1974 and played extensively throughout Northern California. By 1976, the band recorded their first and only album at Pacific Recording Studio in San Mateo. The original title of the album was meant to be "Sativa", but out of fear that promoting the joys of marijuana would be too controversial, the band omitted the title and just left it as "Aura". Over the ensuing decades, the Aura album has grown in stature to become a major soul/funk collector's item. It features a number of major funk tracks plus funky ballads with female vocals. Standouts include 'Sativa' (replete with water-pipe sound effects and blistering guitar), and the manic fuzz-guitar jam 'Skyrocket.' Old style tip-on jacket and quality limited edition vinyl pressing, mastered from the original tapes. LP $14 SKU:19263

BACHS- Out of the Bachs -remastered 180 gram (60s garage psych) GERMAN IMPORT- Label:OUT SIDER Restocked; '60s garage-psych moody monster! Includes insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos.Out of The Bachs was originaally released in 1968 as a private pressing of 150 copies; it's one of the rarest USA '60s garage/teenbeat albums ever. The band consisted of five young kids from Chicago, regulars at local teen dances, who decided to release an album for their fans before splitting up. Recorded and mixed in just ten hours at a makeshift studio, Out of The Bachs offers 12 amazing self-penned songs with a sound ahead of its time. Pure teenage-angst vocals, crashing Rickenbackers, fuzz outbursts, killer moody tracks... Sadly, all previous reissues of the album failed to capture the true sound of the original, until the Time-Lag label reissued it in 2011 with remastered sound from a pristine original vinyl copy. This reissue uses the same audio master as the out-of-print Time-Lag edition. File next to The Rising Storm, The Fantastic Dee-Jays, The Savages. Includes insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos. LP $17 SKU:13382

BAINS, LEE - Dereconstructed ( w first run color vinyl and MP3 download ) -Label:SUB POP Dereconstructed is a careening, road raging, all night party of a record. Informed by a distinctly southern hoodoo, it is a master class in authentic Gulf Coast choogle. Having cut his teeth in the Dexateens, Lee Bains lll has been properly schooled in how to throw down, so much so that even his hyper literate musings are no match for the blown out distortion that gives this record its blistering urgency. LP $16 SKU:10000

BARRACUDAS- ST -(ltd ed OF 100 color vinyl)Label:NDN As a cursory look at radio playlists and cult whisperings will attest, The Barracudas reappearance after so long could not be better timed. Garage music is in fashion (again) and so is surf (well, Brian Wilson, and let's face it they might as well be synonymous). Power pop, likewise, from a 45 grave, has risen to reassert its importance. Indeed, all the styles the band have mastered and made their own are now current and selling. And another thing: The Barracudas sounds younger than yesterday but with experience supplying an edge that cuts across time to the heart of the band. LP $10 SKU:4392

BATORS, STIV- L.A. Confidential LTD Ed RED vinyl (unreleased demos , studio recordings and alternate mixes) Label:BOMP Records In addition to Disconnected, Stiv recorded a number of 45s during his days with Bomp, as well as some unreleased sessions, demos (including a never-released studio session with Jimmy Pursey of Sham 69 and members of the Runaways, produced by Kim Fowley!), recently unearthed studio recordings, and alternate mixes that remained in the can until after his death. LP $20 SKU:15166

BATORS, STIV - Disconnected LTD ED of 100 CLEAR RED VINYL with cool printed inner sleeve! ( powerpop ) -Label:BOMP Inner sleeve includes photos and lyrics. Bators' first solo album, Disconnected was recorded in Los Angeles following the breakup of the Dead Boys. It's got more of a garage pop/Nuggets vibe than the work of the Dead Boys-he even covers the great Electric Prunes track 'I Had Too Much Too Dream Last Night.' But even though he professes to be an evil boy, he does it with a charm that's pretty irresistible." - Creem. LP $20 SKU:16312

BERMUDA TRIANGLE- ST (RARE 70s folk psych -Label:WINTER SOLSTICE "(On) this gem, the sound is totally lost in time and transports you back to the carefree days of the early seventies and is extremely trippy. You have to check out the wah wah autoharp, the weird percussion and bass. A great listen. Almost predates the current folktronica scene. This wild album has to be heard and is quite superb from folk to reels to country all bathed in this misty autoharped glory." —Forced Exposure magazine"Transcendental female vocals, elaborate keyboard arrangements, and autoharp which is often treated with phasing, flanging and other effects. Fine originals. This album is kind of a shock on first listen, because at least to these jaded ears it's not often I discover something so original and bizarre."—Acid Archives LP $32 SKU:11823

BEVIS FROND- Triptych(:80s psych legends)TWEAKED CORNER DISCOUNT! Label:CHERRY RED 80s psych legends vinyl version comes with four additional tracks (one whole LP side)! Hailed with the same breathless enthusiasm as Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and The Flaming Lips (hah, when have those three been referenced in the same breath?) ‘Triptych’ is further proof of the quality of The Bevis Frond legacy. Now with additional tracks in this limited edition format. “A trip worth taking!” squealed Foster Child magazine. Who can argue? Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by Nick Saloman. Basically, this album is worth buying for the track 'Lights Are Changing,' an incredibly catchy slice of pre-Teenage Fanclub sounding bliss. The best songs have great hooks and walls of psychedelic lo-fi guitar. The 19-minute 'Tangerine Infringement Beak' is here too. LP $15 SKU:19294

BEVIS FROND- Aunt Winnie -TWEAKED CORNER DISCOUNT! Label:CHERRY RED Sixth album by The Bevis Frond. Originally released in 1989, and ripe for rediscovery. Four stars in Sounds, it was hailed as mixing “cosmic psycho instrumentals, melodic subterfuge plus guitar and Hammond duelling,” which was applauded as being “groovy as hell.” Hero worshipped by Byron Coley in Forced Exposure, raved about in psych fanzines across the globe, ‘Auntie Winnie’ is a timeless freak out that traverses the four corners of the world especially on the Egypt-inspired ‘City Of The Sun’. A true buried gem from one of music’s unsung heroes now rightfully re-evaluated. Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by The Bevis Frond's Nick Saloman. LP $15 SKU:19295

BLACK PYRAMID- II(STONER PSYCH) DOUBLE CLEAR/GREENLabel:HEADSPIN Limited edition 200 copies 2x180 gram translucent dark green swirl vinyl, housed in majestic gatefold sleeve. Known for its dynamic sound that blends towering riff cosmos with magnetic psychedelic rock, BLACK PYRAMID has been turning heads in the underground music world since its formation in late 2007; the response to its initial demo and debut 7" was such that the band's name spread even faster than its music. The group's instantly agreeable bang and spectacular live shows has garnered the trio an army of loyal enthusiasts. BLACK PYRAMID's thunderous tone, fire-eating licks, lyrical bent and single-minded devotion to music has enabled the trio to share the stage with a variety of like-minded heavy rock acts - from Electric Wizard to Black Mountain - and have pegged the unit as a "band to watch". Heavier and more atmospheric than the band's debut, Black Pyramid II contains BLACK PYRAMID's most ambitious material to date; a fact especially underlined by the epic, 15 minute long closing track "Into The Dawn." When writing the album, the band drew inspiration from "Lovecraft, Robert E Howard, Edison's second book "Mistress Of Mistresses" and both Norse and Indian mythology", while a big influence as far as source material was Grant Morrison's "The Invisibles", the popular comic book series with a plot that follows (more or less) a single cell of "The Invisible College", a secret organization "battling against physical and psychic oppression using time travel, magic, meditation and violence."
