MAGIK MARKERS- Balf Quarry - Label:DRAG CITY Album-length piece of the puzzle from MAGIK MARKERS. Long known for their shattering live appearances, Magik Markers put together really hot albums too -like Balf Quarry. Working with engineer SCOTT COLBURN (Sun City Girls, Animal Collective, Sir Richard Bishop), Magik Markers have captured a lot of different moods and twitches on Balf Quarry. Tremoring mid-rhythms form the body, with a couple showers of hardcore, high flying free-duo style and several clinking music boxes of woe as well. On slower tunes, the mass of brooding guitar tone generated is ELISA's signature, a carving all of her own. Fills, licks and other touches move the songs a broken arm's length away from a fundament of chaos and horror. LP $12 SKU:9974

MANDRAKE MEMORIAL -3PART INVENTIONS PLUS 7"(Trippy 1969 recordings)-Label:FLASHBACK Long thought to be lost, these are the Mandrake Memorial's 1969 recordings. The plan was to record with producer Shel Talmy (The Kinks, The Who, Pentangle), but when that fell through they persevered without him. '3 Part Inventions' anticipates the woozy, dreamlike vibe of the 1970 masterpiece 'Puzzle', combining eerie vocals, trippy guitar and otherworldly electronics to create a unique whole. Transferred directly from the master tapes, it's released here for the first time on 180-GRAM VINYL, including band history and rare images in a 16-page booklet, AND two previously unheard outtakes from a 1969 acetate on an included 7-INCH RECORD with picture sleeve!

MAYFLY- ST ( Deluxe 350 gram carton gatefold sleeve Rare archival photos , liners by Mike Stax ) Label:PSEUDONYM Exclusively restored dynamic 24 bit remastering from the original master tapes LP high quality 180 gram audiophile pressing Deluxe 350 gram carton gatefold sleeve Rare archival photos included Liner Notes by Mike Stax / Ugly Things, plus two bonus tracks
Like the insect that gave them their name, the Dutch group Mayfly existed for just a short while before disappearing. In their brief lifespan, though, they recorded one truly magical and timeless album, along with a handful of singles, all beautifully crafted and imbued with beguiling atmospheres and melodies. Formed in the late 60s in the northern coastal town of Bergen, Mayfly recorded their self-titled album for Ariola in 1973, working with Wally Taxs producer Martin Duiser. This reissue features two bonus tracks, the non-LP single Skew-eyed Jimmy and the alternate 45 version of the groups first single, that jaunty, Ray Davies-inspired Blue Sofa. LP $22 SKU:15561

MERRELL FANKHAUSER - a.k.a The Maui Album (1968 POP PSYCH WONDER ) - Label:OUT-SIDER (Spain) After his stint with Fapardokly, HMS Bounty and MU, Merrell Fankauser released his first solo album in 1976. Comprised of songs written a year earlier while Merrell and violin player Mary Lee were living in the jungle of Maui, this is a brilliant set of spiritual folk-rock and 70s orchestrated SSW light-pop The album was recorded at various Hollywood studios, initially sponsored by a producer from George Harrison’s Dark Horse label. In fact Harrison was so impressed with Merrell’s songs that he expressed interest in playing slide guitar on “Our Way To Hana”. Sadly, due to internal problems, Dark Horse backed off and Merrell found himself without a label to release the album. Finally, a couple of friends from Maui released it on the small Maui Music label. On the recordings, Merrell and Mary Lee were joined by several studio musicians, among them, drummer Bill Berg, who had played on Bob Dylan’s “Blood On The Tracks”. First ever vinyl reissue with tracks restored to their original running order and original artwork. Insert with in-depth liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost), presenting the most complete written story about Merrell’s musical career. "... It stands as a lost classic in Fankhauser's prolific catalog of work." – Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost); “…Great melodic ‘70s psych. Merrell is joined by female violinist Mary Lee; she also was part of the earlier MU scene and lived with Merrell in a Maui jungle hut…– - Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives) LP $18 SKU:16714

MIGHTY CAESARS, THEE -WISEBLOOD ( 80s GARAGE) Label:DAMAGED GOODS Thee Mighty Caesars were formed by Billy Childish in 1985 after the demise of The Milkshakes. They influenced many American bands, especially The Mummies, and Sub Pop groups. They were arguably the group that brought about the resurgence of garage rock LP $16 SKU:17847

MILKSHAKES -AFTER SCHOOL SESSION ( Hard rocking guitar 1983) -Label:DAMAGED GOODS When the Pop Rivets broke up in 1980, Billy Childish joined forces with roadie Mickey Hampshire who'd been performing in a band called Mickey & The Milkshakes.

MODULATORS- Tomorrow's Coming (quintessential 80's power pop)Label:MANUFACTURED RECORDINGS Formed in 1980, New Jersey's the Modulators are one of the unsung greats of the American power pop scene. Initially the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Joe Riccardello with help from producer/lyricist (and Vintage Vinyl Records owner) Rob Roth, Ricardello released his first single Girl Trouble in 1980 just before bringing on friends Mark Higgins (guitar) and Mark 'Cakes' Westlake (drums) to join the band. As a fully-formed trio, the Modulators began playing out across New Jersey in the early 80's and recorded tracks for two local compilations and the band's second, enduring single She's So Cynical in 1982. Live gigs and songwriting continued, with the band often writing and recording more material than their release schedule could keep up with. Finally in 1984, the band released their first and only LP, Tomorrow's Coming on Roth's Vintage Vinyl Records. Full of timeless gems and quintessential 80's power pop anthems, the record is now regarded as a genre classic by power pop collectors. Tracks like 'Spin Me Around,' 'If You Let Her Go,' and 'Lost Without a Sound' display the Modulators' smart songwriting, catchy hooks, and effortless pop sensibility. Though the band continued to play the tri-state area until 1986 (and every now and then since), Tomorrow's Coming was the Modulator's last vinyl release. Bringing together the band's entire discography with an additional 14 unreleased songs and demo tracks and liner notes from power pop collector Steve Borchardt, Manufactured Recordings is proud to present the definitive release of this power pop classic. LP $18 SKU:18450

MONOCLES/THE HIGHER ELEVATION - The Spider,The Fly and the Boogieman (PEBBLES stars-rare 60s psych)-Label:OUT-SIDER This essential LP includes an insert with detailed liner notes and rare photos. Most people were introduced to the bizarre psychedelic sound of The Monocles (later The Higher Elevation) thanks to the inclusion of the bizarre 'The Spider & The Fly' and 'The Diamond Mine' on the legendary 3rd volume of'Pebbles' Vol. 3 (the "acid-punk" volume). These youngsters from Colorado formed in 1964 and they were famous for driving to gigs in a custom Cadillac hearse. Between 1965 and 1968, they released a bunch of singles for labels s.a. Chicory, Denco, Liberty. This retrospective collection includes the best of their 45 sides, plus some tracks that are previously unreleased on vinyl. You'll find demented psychsploitation ('The Spider And The Fly', 'The Diamond Mine'), crude garage-psych, sunshine-pop and jangly folk-rock, teen garage and frat-rock, pop-psych and more.

LP $22 SKU:18826

MORNING DEW - ST DOUBLE LP (60s rare psych collectors fave ) -Label:LION Morning Dew have been psych collector faves for ages. Their sole release, "At Last" (much like the Morgen album on Probe) becomes more obviously crucial with each passing year. After recording their legendary album for Roulette in 1969, Morning Dew headed back to Topeka feeling good about their prospects. But Roulette had problems. They did finally release "At Last" late in 1970... and marketed it so well it became a psychedelic rarity and a cult favorite. Even so, Morning Dew's producer at Roulette urged the band to record a demo of songs for a second album. They went to a local studio in August 1970 and blasted out eight songs, bolstered by new recruit Ferdy Baumgart's Hammond B3. Band leader Mal Robinson also made acoustic two-track recordings in his basement: new songs, plus others from the Morning Dew repertoire—just vocal and guitar. The band gigged while Roulette and it's honcho Morris Levy withered under scrutiny by law enforcement. A second album came to nothing. Still under contract with Roulette and still dealing with broken promises, burnt out and broke, Morning Dew disbanded in June, 1971. But those demos... they need to be heard. That's where we come in. Two records, chock full of your new favorite Morning Dew songs, plus solo acoustic versions of band classics like the monumental 'Crusader's Smile,' alternates, and more, most of which is previously unreleased.
One more thing: all of this material is making its vinyl debut. LP $28 SKU:18280

MOTT THE HOOPLE - All The Young Dudes - RED VINYL LTD (70s gram ) -Label:DRASTIC PLASTIC Best known for the song “All the Young Dudes” (written for the band by David Bowie), Mott the Hoople scored with their 1972 album of the same name. With a foundation in R&B, they became quite popular in the ’70s glam scene.Their fifth studio album, All the Young Dudes, is considered a pivotal moment in the band’s career. Though Mott the Hoople was heading toward a breakup at the time, Bowie penned the album’s titular song and produced the record, making Mott the Hoople relevant again in the glam rock era. LP $24 SKU:16209

MOUNTAIN DUST -NINE YEARS (STONER PSYCH) ORANGE-Label:KOZMIK ARTIFACT Limited edition of 150 copies on ORANGE VINYL. The amazing debut by the Canadian outfit MOUNTAIN DUST. These seven tracks offer a blast of cymbal crashing, headbanging hard rock laced with doom metal and a sensible dosage of psychedelia. Undeniably rooted in the past, 'Nine Years' nevertheless sounds fresh and modern due to the band's ability to mix styles in a tasteful way. We get the proto-metal influence from Led Zeppelin, the heavy organ sound of The Doors, but also a huge dose of stoner, blues and psychedelic rock. LP $28 SKU:18586

MOVE- Shazam(1970) 180 GRAM- Label:MUSIC ON VINYL Reissue on 180-gram vinyl. 'Shazam' is the second album by The Move, originally released in the UK in February 1970. The album functioned as a bridge between the band's quirky late '60s pop singles and the progressive, long-form style of Roy Wood's next project, the Electric Light Orchestra. It was the last Move album to feature the group's original lead vocalist, Carl Wayne. LP $22 SKU:17948


BACK IN STOCK, REMINDERS, AND OTHER COOL STUFF

FALCO TAV Sugar Ditch Revisited/The Shake Rag DBL CDLabel:STAG-O-LEE (GERMANY) The Tav Falco & Panther Burns reissue/remaster series, part two. This one contains the Sugar Ditch Revisited EP (1985) and The Shake Rag EP (1986). Plus a previously-unreleased 11-song/45 minute live show from the Messepalast Vienna from 1989. Pristine recording by the ORF! Sugar Ditch Revisited -- a modest album with a huge cast of the crème of Memphis musicians joining Panther Burns. Jim Dickinson produced the record alongside Roland James, pioneer guitarist on the early Jerry Lee Lewis sides, twirling the knobs at the control board. This record featured two songs Dickinson had found on tapes discarded by Stax during the last days of the studio's existence. Sir Mac Rice an ex-Falcon penned "Tina, The Go Go Queen" and "Money Talks." For these numbers Andrew Love and Ben Cauley were brought in from the Memphis Horns to add that lush and signature lilt of the laid-back "Memphis sound." Alex Chilton played his new guitar -- a rusty Mosrite, the bassist Rene Coman came up from New Orleans for the sessions, Ross Johnson whipped the skins, and a bevy of girlfriends sang backing vocals. Shake Rag -- Panther Burns recorded this dark and lugubrious mini-album at the Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis in 1986. While this was the boom period for lavish alternative, new wave, and no wave music productions, there were only three stalwarts responsible for this record: Jim Dickinson producer, keyboardist, guitarist, Ross Johnson on percussion, and Tav Falco on guitar and voice. There is a raw primitivism howling from these tracks and an unbridled intensity not heard from the band in recorded form since their first record Behind the Magnolia Curtain. Live at Messepalast is a collection of songs cut from a wild and wooly two-hour show on Panther Burns' second tour of Europe in 1989. ORF (Austrian National Radio) was there recording the whole mess in ultra high-fidelity, and the result is what you will hear on this record. Two CDs in 12" replica sleeves, the live show is added to the Shake Rag EP. Includes a 32-page booklet featuring extensive liner notes by Tav Falco himself. Packaged in a special deluxe wraparound wallet sleeve. CD $19 SKU:17747

MODERN ART-All Aboard the Mind Train (PRE SUNDIAL PROJECT) -Label:GALLIUM ARSENIDE (USA) Pre-Sundial project by group leader and chiming guitar wizard Gary Ramon for the first time on CD—(it was released on LP twice—in 1989 by the German Out of Depression label, and in an improved version in 1994 on Acme UK); more straight-forward and song-oriented than the later Sundial material, which means less guitar pyrotechnics, but a terrific album all the same; this CD brings you the improved sound quality of the Acme version of the album, and includes two bonus tracks to make it even better. CD $8 SKU:19038

MOLTEN UNIVERSE-NO LOVE AROUND (EX LIME SPIDER GARAGE ROCK )EPLabel:OFF THE HIP MOLTEN UNIVERSE hails from Sydney, Australia and plays a heavy brand of garage rock, similar in vein to Australian legends THE LIME SPIDERS' early 7-inch output. Not surprising really when three members of MOLTEN UNIVERSE cut their teeth in that seminal OZ band! Perverted lyrics with a heavy sound; is it any wonder there's 'No Love Around'5 non album tracks from ex-lime spiders. CD $6 SKU:19208

MOPS- Exit CARDWALLET ( 60 Japanese garage / psych quintet ) SAALE - Label:PHOENIX RECORDS (UK) Beatles style! Features the original LP artwork and includes the original Japanese insert. Digitally remastered. CD $10 SKU:13956

MOPS-Psychedelic Sounds in Japan-Label:WORLD PSYCHEDELIA (Korea) The Mops are the undisputed kings of the late sixties/early seventies Japanese rock scene; all of their discs are marked by spectacular singing, playing, arranging, and songwriting. Yet it is their first album, "Psychedelic Sounds in Japan," that gets the most praise—rightly so, as it's a marked deviation from most of the other music making going on at the time in Japan, with its sharply stripped-down sound and emphasis on musicianship, songwriting, and atmosphere over production values. As such, it's one of the few Japanese rock albums that has an outside-of-Japan following, and it's frequently name-checked on lists of classic obscure albums. But of course, this means that original LP copies of the album trade for hilarious amounts! This reissue restores the track "Blind Bird," (missing from other reissues of this album, apparently due to its "offensive" lyrics), and adds seven bonus tracks. If you've never heard this album, and you're a fan of tightly written songs, great playing, totally incomprehensible lyrics and a smattering of surprising covers (‘The Letter,’ ‘Light My Fire,’ ‘Somebody to Love’), this one’s for you. And how can anyone live without the classic ‘I Am Just a Mops’—I mean, aren’t we all? CD $10 SKU:18954

MORAZ, PATRICK- Future Memories 1 and 11(MOODY BLUES)-Label:TIME WAVE Swiss born Patrick Moraz is probably best known in rock music circles for his membership of two of the world’s biggest rock bands, Yes and the Moody Blues. He was also been a member of the progressive rock band Mainhorse, forming the band with bassist Jean Ristori in 1969 and releasing one self titled album in 1970. By the time of the release of Moraz’s debut solo album in early 1976, he was firmly installed as the keyboard player in Yes. Following the release of Relayer all the members of Yes embarked on solo projects thus ensuring that his “The Story Of I” received maximum coverage in the music press. He then released his second solo album in 1977 (“Out In The Sun”) before joining the Moody Blues. As can be deduced from the title the second disc on offer here is a pairing of the first two Future Memories releases gathered together on one release. As with all the albums in the Patrick Moraz reissue campaign, this album has been re mastered for release by Moraz himself from the original master tapes. (Time Wave) CD $6 SKU:19061

MORGAN, SCOTT- ST (Sonics Rendezvous ) SAALE - Label:ALIVE The legendary Scott Morgan (Rationals, Sonic's Rendezvous Band, The Solution) has teamed up with some of Detroit's most highly regarded underground luminaries to make his definitive solo album. Scott Morgan is a first rate rock singer, admired by everyone from Mitch Ryder to Nathaniel Mayer, from Rob Tyner to Iggy. Since his 70's stint in Sonic's Rendezvous Band, Scott has made a lot of great music with a variety of bands, a lot of loud motor city style stuff, and some straight up soul music as well, but this is his first proper solo outing. Scott Morgan, the album, is a point where Detroit soul tradition meets Ann Arbor music history in a blast of Downtown Detroit contemporary rockn'roll culture. It is brought to you by the producers responsible for records by Nathaniel Mayer, The Go, The White Stripes, The Sights, Outrageous Cherry, and a whole lot of other good stuff!CD $5 SKU:11408

MOUNT CARMEL - GET PURE Digipack ( for Radio Moscow fans! ) - Label:ALIVE Amid the current industry of cool, Mount Carmel’s lack of gimmick is a welcome anachronism. The trio’s third album “Get Pure” is full of swagger, packed with great songs and inspired performances. This is true rock music like you haven’t heard in years. Crank it up!
Mount Carmel reeks of surging guitar riffs and thunderous backbeats. They’re a power trio in the truest sense of the term and certainly nowhere near as anonymous as their cover art would have you believe.As you may have guessed, this is an album for the heavy blues guitar freaks. – 194 CD $5 SKU:15855

MOUNTAIN -Canadian Festival Express 1970-Label:VOICEPRINT Scorching live recording by Leslie West's legendary band of rockers, recorded at the Canadian Festival Express in 1970. The tenth volume in the Mountain Bootleg Series was recorded on their Canadian Festival Express tour in 1971. As with all the other volumes in the series, all of the recordings come from Leslie West and Corky Laing's personal archives. Some of the performances are not sonically perfect, but the quality of the performances are never in question. When 1970 began, New York hard rockers Mountain were one of the most promising new bands. Their 1969 debut (while the album was titled “Mountain,” it was credited solely to Leslie West) had led to a highly coveted spot in the original Woodstock festival, thrusting the band was into the spotlight. By the year's end, due to their exceptional sophomore effort, “Climbing,” Mountain were one of the US's premier rock outfits CD $8 SKU:19503

MOUNTAIN -Live in San Bernadino, CA 1971-Label:VOICEPRINT Mountain was formed in 1969 by guitarist Leslie West and bassist and former Cream producer Felix Pappalardi. The two met while West was a member of Long Island R&B band the Vagrants When West left the Vagrants to record a solo album it was agreed that Felix Pappalardi would produce the said album which was entitled Mountain. The sessions for the album went so well that it was decided that the pair would form a band and the band would take its name from Leslie’s album. So it was that Mountain was born. Joining Leslie and Felix was drummer N.D. Smart who had also played on Leslie’s album and keyboard player Steve Knight. The band started to gig and whilst the response was positive no one would have dreamed how big the audience would be for the bands fourth gig. In August 1969 Mountain along with the likes of the Who, Jefferson Airplane, Crosby Stills Nash and Young—and of course Jimi Hendrix—played at the Woodstock festival. CD $8 SKU:19504

MOUNTAIN - Live At The Capitol Theater 1974-Label:VOICEPRINT Continuing this great collection of Live Mountain performances here is a show from 1974 from the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey, from the period when the band had re-formed and the core trio of Leslie West, Felix Pappalardi and Corky Lang reunited for a series of successful dates and a great album called "Avalanche". The re-union was unfortunately short lived which makes the recordings on this disc all the more precious. CD $8 SKU:19505

MOUNTAIN - Live At The Capitol Theater 1973-Label:VOICEPRINT This King Biscuit Flower Hour concert was recorded in late 1973 at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey. By this point, the band had been through many of the cliche rock band phases: the breakup, the side-projects, a reunion with new members. The short version of the story is that the band split up, and Leslie and Corky hooked up with former Cream bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce to form the supergroup West, Bruce and Laing, with whom they put out a number of albums. Mountain later reunited, but during '73, the band went on a Japanese tour without Laing, because of an alleged dispute between him and Pappalardi. CD $10 SKU:19516

MOUSTAKI ,GEORGES - Le Concert (French 50s/60s outsider) LAST COPIESLabel:PAZZAZZ (Germany) lAthough he achieved his greatest fame in France, singing French-language songs in a distinctly French style, singer/songwriter Georges Moustaki was more a citizen of the world—or, as he often put it a “citizen of the French language.’ Christening himself a cultural “mongrel" in his signature hit ’Le Métèque," Moustaki’s first love was the classic-style French chanson—but he often appropriated world folk music from Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Brazil (bossa nova and MPB), Argentina (tango) and other parts of Latin America, the United States (blues and jazz), and anywhere else his travels took him. Simplicity was a hallmark of many of his own recordings; possessed of a soft, warm voice, he often sang with only his own guitar for accompaniment, creating an intimacy that translated to his live gigs as well. A successful artist in his own right, Moustaki initially made his name as a songwriter of some renown, composing material for many of the top French singers of the late '50s and ’60s, his one-time lover Édith Piaf (including the massive hit ‘Milord’), Barbara, Brigitte Fontaine, Dalida (including ‘Gigi l'amoroso’), France Gall, and Cindy Daniel. Moustaki has moonlighted as a poet, actor, novelist, and journalist at various points in his career, and remains one of France's more ambitious artists as his trademark beard and long, flowing hair have turned white.

SLOW GRIND FEVER - #3 Yet More (Adventures in the sleazy world of POPCORN NOIR 53-63 )Label:STAG-O-LEE (GERMANY) Stag-O-Lee presents the third volume of Slow Grind Fever, compiled by Richie1250 and subtitled YET MORE... Adventures in the sleazy world of POPCORN NOIR... The decade between 1953 and 1963 offers an endless supply of danceable, up-tempo tunes. We're talking rhythm 'n' blues, and the phase in the early '60s when it morphed into soul (now called new breed), as well as popcorn -- Belgian music with a mid-tempo style and a high groove-factor. The Slow Grind Fever series highlights the slower side of this period, and takes its title and inspiration from an Australian club night billed as "Melbourne's only slow dance party." These events would include only the "slowest, spookiest, sweetest records" the DJs could find, with folks dancing "real slow in a haze of smoke and dim red light." Stag-O-Lee was convinced that this was a great concept for a compilation series, and have collaborated with those behind the Melbourne club night to present Slow Grind Fever, the third volume of which includes tracks by The Notes, The El Torros, Eddie Cooley & The Dimples, Isley Brothers With Ray Ellis & Orch., Donna Dee, Charlie Williams, Henry Thome, Bob Lee, Little Willie John, Elizabeth Waldo, Bobby Rebel, Jessie Hill, The Flamingos, and Jimmy Scott.

This is it boys, the legend, the album, the music, that has led us down the ever twining world of collecting private pressings. And we were never to be the same after it was made... In 1964 the band who was later to be called Khazad Doom started to dream of "making it" in Bob Davis’ basement in little ol' Morton Grove, Illinois. After 29 members and multiple names (The Vibratos, The Laymen), three musicians and a "Crow", they formally became Khazad Doom and the legend was born. Jack Eadon, Tom Sievers, Steve "Al" Yates and Steve "Crow" Hilkin became the band that was full of talent, dreams and perserverence. The original album "Level 6 1/2" was released circa 1971 in reportedly just 180 copies making it a mega rarity immediately. Of course who would care about an obscure piece of psychedelic conceptual vinyl? The answer... many collectors worldwide rate the album in the top 5 of all private domestic releases ever! In fact, originals fetch over four figures now! This reissue of just 800 copies, and features the original album plus one cut that was taken from their unreleased second album.

MAYER, NATHANIEL- Why Won't You Let Me Be Black ( BLUE VINYL, LIMITED to 800 ) with the BLACK KEYS - Label:ALIVE Nathaniel Mayer (1944-2008) was one of the all-time great soul singers. His 1962 record "Village of Love" made him a star, and he inspired several generations of musicians, especially in his hometown of Detroit. Nathaniel's last sessions took place during two long summer days and nights of intense jamming, writing, and recording. "Why Don't You Give It To Me?" was the first installment of these recordings to be unleashed. Now, here at last, is a second volume of Nathaniel Mayer having a blast with the assistance of members of the BLACK KEYS, SSM, OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY and the DIRTBOMBS. The two acoustic performances are from a 2007 radio interview, Nathaniel's only known "unplugged" performance. About the title: It has to do with the food he kept being served while on tour in Europe. When Nate finally became frustrated with the countless plates of cheese and French bread that awaited him backstage at every gig, he shouted "Why Won't You Let Me Be Black?". He agreed that it sounded like a good title for his next album. - Matthew Smith (Outrageous Cherry). The 1st VINYL PRESSING is on BLUE VINYL, LIMITED to 800 COPIES. LP $20 SKU:10485

MILAN -HELL BENT FOR LEATHER (60s LEGEND FROM PEBBLES SERIES) LAST COPIES -Label:LICORICE SCHTIK A stunning, absolute must-have vinyl only release for any decent '60s music fan!!! From his earliest incarnation in the record industry as a Xmas twister, the enigmatic Milan has changed his name and re-invented himself several times: a teen idol with a cute hairdo and a preppy look, a garage gonzo savage, an all dressed-in-black biker stud, a psychedelic screamer in love with satellite sounds and other characters known or waiting to be discovered. One thing is for sure, few people can claim so many identities in less than a decade. Composer, interpreter, producer & arranger, Milan is also all of these throughout the '60s. This anthology would like to pay homage to the man. The A side is dedicated to the singer and performer, and the B side to the producer and arranger. Unfortunately, Milan's fame was due to be short and by the end of the '60s he was diagnosed with a brain tumour and disappeared from the music business. LP $12 SKU:18505

MISTY HUSH REVIVAL - Your Heart Is Broken (obscure 60s ) SAALE insert with rare pictures, liners, 180 gram - Label:GUERSSEN RECORDS (SPAIN) First time ever reissue, remastered from 24-bit files, original artwork, insert with rare pictures and liner notes by Jack D. Fleischer.”One of the most obscure US private pressings from the late 60s / early 70s.For many years, The Misty Hush Revival name was only a rumor whispered in collector's circles, with only a handful copies known of the original album. Like The Bach’s or The Index, this is one of those hard to describe albums which seem to live in a world of their own. Despite the late '72 release date, the music here sounds more late 60s than early 70s and the whole album has a cool, lost-in-time atmosphere. The group were in fact a club band from New Jersey but surprisingly all the tracks are originals, no cover versions, and they range from fragile, dreamy pop-psych numbers to raw garage, fuzzed-out jams and teen-beat sounds. As Patrick Lundborg says in Acid Archives: "A cool, atmospheric trip for fans of the tri-state late '60s club sound" First time ever reissue, remastered from 24-bit files, original artwork, insert with rare pictures and liner notes by Jack D. Fleischer.” LP $22 SKU:13922
