The debut-album from Hashish offers top class psychedelia that definitely takes the genre to a new level, revealing a sophisticated approach to an Afro-funk groove, accompanied by dreamy and playful melodies that go by a spectrum from Scandinavian occult psychedelia to minimal synth and surreal electronic soul disco with rare groove traces.

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

SACRED SAILORS-GOLDEN DAWN(60s garage style)Label:BAM BALAM/PITSHARK THE SACRED SAILORS are a combo of 19-year-old guys from Gothenburg who pack sharp song writing skills together with influences that range from GRAND FUNK RAILROAD, DAMNATION OF ADAM BLESSING, BOB SEGER & THE LAST HEARD, ATTACK, MC5, ROKY ERICKSON, THE FROST, SHOCKING BLUE and recent bands like UNION CARBIDE PRODUCTIONS and THE FLAMING SIDEBURNS. With two European releases and extensive touring of their home Continent under their belt, Pitshark records (FR) brings you their 2006 offer, Golden Dawn, consisting of 14 outstanding tracks. Lowcut magazine in Germany says: Like The HELLACOPTERS fed on a diet of 60s garage! CD $17 SKU:23532

TOTAL REJECTION - THE TIME TRAVELLER'S 3RD WILL AND TESTAMENTLabel:RAVING POP BLAST! The third album from these garage rocking pop-psych heads is very possibly the best one yet. Taking their '60s influenced garage rock music a step further, 'The Time Traveller's...' finds deeper darker depths. Influences are worn on the front of t-shirts, quite openly yes, but you can actually believe these guys know what they're wearing! This album builds on the raw sound of its predecessors with a further blast of psych'n'roll. Tremelo and wah wah pedals get abused to squalling effect, Keith Moon-esque drums clatter and the Hammond wails. It's ALIVE! And THRILLING! The songs are stuffed with pop melodies and the sound has its tentacles over all manner of '60s bands - the cover of Bohemian Vendetta's 'Enough' gives a clue as to where the band's collective head is. The album is beautifully produced in a way it sounds like it wasn't produced at all. Totally raw and occasionally rough-edged, exactly how music was recorded, before technology smoothed everything out to near blandness. Guitars twang, chime, fuzz and wah-wah into a frenzy of excitement, vocals stretch beyond their abilities and occasionally scream and break, while the drums biff bang and pow (er) their way through, while somehow holding everything together. Organs swirl, and a variety of 'strange sounds' all of which were created by experimentation, rather than using modern day 'plug ins' or 'pressing buttons', will have you wondering, what is that?...

GREEK THEATREBROKEN CIRCLE (:west-coast influenced psych Label:SUGARBUSH The long awaited second album by Sweden's premier west-coast influenced psych act. This time around the material dives much deeper into full-on psychedelia, yet retains -and even improves on- the band's excellent songwriting. While a lot of contemporary psych bands revel in endless blasts of somewhat monotonous spacerock, it has become a rare thing to find an album of song based psychedelia, which is exactly what 'Broken Circle' is. This edition is limited to only 200 copies on black vinyl. LP $25 SKU:23528

GRIP WEEDS-HOUSE OF VIBES(Cheap Trick/Byrds/ CSNY) Label:SUGARBUSH Their classic debut 2004 album repressed on high quality 140 gram audiophile vinyl, limited to only 400 copies with a full colour insert. The New Jersey band's raucous blend of Cheap Trick's power chords, The Byrds' ethereal jangle and CSNY's airy harmonies was different, half a decade too early for the New York-based garage revival of the early '00s, and a decade or so too late to be in sync with the West Coast's Paisley Pop movement. No wonder this self-recorded, self-released gem of the power pop art fell on mostly deaf ears, lauded by a few Jersey visionaries, hailed in Germany but completely ignored by commercial radio and MTV. LP $35 SKU:23529

It makes its long-awaited return to vinyl here, complete with an insert containing background notes and images. LP $25 SKU:23486

EDWARDS HAND-RAINSHINE (1971baroque pop post-Picadilly) Label:WOODEN HILL The first-ever issue of 'Rainshine', the semi-mythical third and final LP from post-Picadilly Line outfit Edwards Hand, recorded in early 1971 with legendary producer George Martin at the helm. Despite persistent collector-world rumours of a withdrawn or promo-only pressing on the Regal Zonophone label, the album failed to gain any kind of release - until now, that is. As can finally be heard, 'Rainshine' turns out to be a lost early '70s soft rock/baroque pop classic, with a clutch of wonderful songs ably supported by sumptuous vocal harmonies, sympathetic musicianship and some exquisite baroque pop arrangements from George Martin. Taken from the original master tapes, this long-overdue release features a beautiful 12-page booklet with lots of previously unpublished photos as well as the full story behind the LP.

FOREVER AMBER - THE LOVE CYCLE (1968 UK pop-psych band) - Label:WOODEN HILL One of the rarest albums (copies are currently valued around 1500) to escape from the British psychedelic era, THE LOVE CYCLE was recorded at a local demo studio in the summer of 1968 by Cambridge pop-psych band Forever Amber. Only previously available on bootleg, it now receives its first-ever legitimate reissue with the full participation of band members and the songwriting genius behind it, the mysterious John M. Hudson. With fully restored sound and a 16-page booklet that includes the original artwork, comprehensive liner notes, band quotes and previously unpublished photos, this is the definitive issue of one of the greatest, most elusive albums of the British psychedelic era, akin to a garage band version of the Zombies masterpiece Odessey And Oracle CD $25 SKU:23252

KLUBS - MIDNIGHT LOVE CYCLE (67-69 lost Brit psych gods) Label:WOODEN HILL Collection of '67-'69 recordings from the band recently described by RECORD COLLECTOR as the great lost British PSYCHEDELIC group of the era.

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.

PROTEX - STRANGE OBSESSIONS (70s punk holy grail) Label:BACHELOR Strange Obsessions has long been the holy grail of fervent record collectors worldwide. Rumors have abounded that this album had been released in Holland and or that there were a small number of white label test pressings in existence but none of these claims have ever been substantiated.

SUNFLOWERS- CASTLE SPELL(heavy psych punk shredders)Label: STOLEN BODY One can say the band is young and restless, but they bring a well thought mutated slab of paranoia filled heavy shredders, while the hazed sunset fades away in the rearview mirror, darkening the desert and filling the air with some energized psych punk auras. 'Castle Spell' is a 10-story palace, each of them with its own atmosphere, its gloomy and murderous tenants, all narrated by Carol's docile voice and Carlos's intrusive howls. CD $17 SKU:23294

BAD BEATS- HIS VENGEFUL HAND (60s style garage fuzz) Label:SOUNDFLAT The legacy of Canadian fuzz is in good hands, this debut album from THE BAD BEATS proves it.

Yes they rock like crazy and play with the fired up fury of The Stooges, MC5 and The Alice Cooper Group as they let their freak flag fly. On 'Livin In The Jungle' Banshee detonate over 11 tracks of pure diamond arrangements that will lay you out flat and have your head swirling from the whallop of the sleazy voodoo racket that Banshee have created. Informed in equal parts by the intensity of '60s Detroit and The Alice Cooper Group and with a rhythmic underbelly the calls on in parts the funk explosion of WAR. From the opening Intro of 'Genesis' amid a barrage of bells, chimes jungle sounds and a group feeling the funk they lay straight into 'The Law' where without missing a beat and over a blast of guitar riffs, dive bombing bass lines, thunderous drums and a voice that spits out and caterwails with a vengeance you find Banshee freewheelin' into what will become your favourite rock'n'roll LP for 2020. The engine has started and the whole record is executed at a breakneck pace that is a furious rollercoaster ride to sweet oblivion. On the final epic sprawl that is 'Caged Birds' which starts out with a garage like Sister Ray bump'n'grind chug before descending into a glorious meltdown of fuzzed up wah wah guitars and glockenspiels before everything finally fades back into the jungle. 'Livin In The Jungle' is one rabid rock'n'roll animal of a record. Limited to 500 copies on coloured vinyl. LP $24 SKU:22824

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
