PEBBLES. THE SERIES THAT INSPIRED THE ENTIRE GARAGE ROCK REVIVAL! In his review of the Pebbles series for Allmusic, Richie Unterberger comments: "Though 1972's Nuggets compilation reawakened listeners to the sounds of mid-'60s garage rock, it only focused on the tip of the iceberg. Behind those forgotten hits and semi-hits lurked hundreds, if not thousands, of regional hits and flops from the same era, most even rawer and cruder. . . . More than any other factor, these compilations [in the Pebbles series] were responsible for the resurgence of interest in garage rock, which remains high among collectors to this day."

GOD’s CHILDREN- Music is the Answer-1971 sessionsLabel:MINKY UNSEALED BUT MINT he Complete Collection is the first full length release of long lost 1971 sessions from the East L.A. supergroup God's Children, featuring eight never-before-issued tracks as well as six from long out of print 45s. "With God's Children, we thought we could speak to the people out there who were hurting, experiencing life and it's battles" states the outfit's co-founder Little Willie G. Garcia. For young Latinos Willie Garcia, Ray Jimenez, and Lydia Amescua - the main voices in the group - the door was abierto, and the time was ahora for a mixed-gender, multi-racial Southern Californian combo to stake their claim in rock 'n' soul redemption. God's Children was conceived of by Garcia and Lil' Ray Jimenez who had already experienced great regional success with Thee Midniters, crowned princes of the Eastside Los Angeles music scene, who cast the mold for brown-eyed soul and helped define West Coast low rider music in the early '60s. Thee Midniters eventually ran it's course but Lil' Ray and Willie both agreed to work together on a new project, adding a teenage girl with a big voice, Lydia Amescua - to be known as Amesqua in the group - to the mix. Inspired by the work of artists diverse as Johnny Rivers and Stevie Wonder, God's Children began to blend doo wop, funk, and choreography into their new brand of soulful sound. Studio time was booked and arranged for a 40-piece orchestra. Soon, the band was signed to the UNi label and sent into the studio for more recording, this time with Phil Spector's famed Wrecking Crew. At the time, two singles came out on UNi, but soon, dealing with label hierarchy disillusioned the band members who went their separate ways. These holy relics of Latino Rock conjure the circumstances and conditions under which they were made, and also the sounds of right now: elation and heartbreak, pride of celebration and the ceremonies of Spanish-speaking Californians, living their lives out loud, contributing to the evolution of Chicano rock from Santana and El Chicano, to the Zeros and Ozomatli.

HAZLEWOOD, LEE -Something Special-Label:LITA The three years spent on MGM Records between 1966 and 1968 were golden ones for Lee Hazlewood. He spent them working with his muse, Suzi Jane Hokom, writing a still-unreleased book, The Quiet Revenge of Elmo Furback, competing with Phil Spector from their respective studios, and coming up with the formula for the "boy/girl” songs for which he’d become famous. In fact, the unflattering portrait on the cover of Something Special did little to hint at how hip this late-flowering talent (he was in his late 30s when “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” made him a star songwriter) had become..CD $10 SKU:24181

MARCOS VALLE - VENTO SUL (Reissue of 1972 Brazilian Beach Bum Classic) Label:LITA During the hot Brazilian summer of 1971, Marcos and Paulo Sergio Valle, along with their significant others and six additional couples, rented a few modest fisherman shacks in the small village of Búzios to escape from Rio’s more populated beaches. The focus was making music and soul searching, as was the practice for affluent young hippies back then. They stayed for two months. “I wanted to go in a new direction,” says Marcos looking back. “I wanted to try out a rock influence and to risk a little bit more.” Shifting away from the studio musicians used on 1971’s Garra, Vento Sul (translation “South Wind”) was a rewarding collaboration with Brazilian progressive rockers O Terço.

THUNDERS, Johnny--Diary of a Gypsy Lover 23 TRAX ALTERNATE STUDIO CUTS,LIVE,RADIO)?Label:SONIC Punk rock guitar hero, earning a cult following for his noisy but epic style a few years before the insouciant new music gained its name. Following in the footsteps of his idol and role model Keith Richards, Johnny Thunders (born John Anthony Genzale, Jr.) lived the ultimate rock & roll life, spending most of his days churning out tough, sloppy three-chord rock & roll and gaining nearly as strong a reputation for his decades-long struggle with addiction as for his music. Thunders made his greatest impact as a member of the New York Dolls, the proto-punk glam rockers of the early '70s. During the late '70s, he was a familiar figure on the New York punk scene, both with his band the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist. Thunders performed and recorded steadily until his death in 1991, turning out a series of records that inadvertently documented the struggles of his life and his art. CD $10 SKU:20428
