NEW ARRIVALS

AGITATION FREE-MALESCH (1967 Krautrock)-Label:MADE IN GERMANY Repress. When the band Agitation Free came together in 1967 as a result of the merging of two Berlin rock groups, one of the most interesting groups in a dawning independent German music scene was created. With their improvisational mixture of rock, jazz and new music, Agitation Free -soon relegated to the not so flattering category of "Krautrock"- made musical forays into areas that few of their fellow German musicians had ever penetrated.

PLASTIC PENNY - Two Sides of a Penny - 180 gram (UK 60s psych pop)Label:RADIATION DELUXE UK psych-pop group Plastic Penny released this, their debut LP, in 1968 on Kinks' manager Larry Page's Page One label. The opening track, 'Everything I Am' - written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, and originally recorded by Alex Chilton's group The Box Tops - was a #6 hit on the UK charts in early '68. While that was the extent of most of the world's exposure to Plastic Penny at the time, the rest of the album is a glorious slice of orchestral psych-pop with light progressive touches, and in the intervening years it has become a highly sought-after collector's item. Fetching three figures on the online market, 'Two Sides Of A Penny' has moody arrangements, killer guitar work, swirling organ, and hooks galore, along with vocals reminiscent of the aforementioned Kinks' Davies brothers as well as a taste of Joe Cocker. Members of Plastic Penny would go on to greater fame in groups like Cochise, Procol Harum, Chicken Shack, and UFO, while drummer Nigel Olsson went on to be one of the UK's most popular session musicians playing with Elton John, The Troggs, and Rod Stewart, among others. This beautiful piece of late `60s psychedelic pop is reissued in a limited edition of 500 copies on 180 gram vinyl for RSD 2019 LP $24 SKU:21171

TOMRERCLAUS -JAGUAR(Danish psych legend)Label:KARMA MUSIC The 2016 album by Danish psychedelic music legend Tomrerclaus. Much in the vein of his first album from 1978. Tomrerclaus plays guitars, clarinet, synth and he sings as well. Thomas Vilhelm plays the drums this time around, and Preben Madsen plays bass. In these days, with acid rock and flower power music being retro, it is good to see that the master can still show how to do it. 'Jaguar' is a thumping fat album, which should be in any psych-rock fanatic's record collection CD $16 SKU:21057

WILDFLOWER-40 YEARS IN A BLINK OF AN EYE (psych/flower/pop/folk)
Label:WILDFLOWERMUSIC A 2007 collection of tracks by the re-united Wildflower, featuring songs the band played in the '60s, but never recorded during that time. Still has the psych/flower/pop/folk feel from that era. The CD comes with 8 page booklet with all lyrics and nice pictures. In 1965, "The Wildflower" began at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland with Stephen Ehret on rhythm guitar, Tom Ellis on drums, John Jennings on bass, Teddy Schneider played percussion, Michael Brown played lead guitar, and the whole band sang. Stephen wrote the songs for the band and also collaborated with poets, Michael McClure and Michael McCausland. The band was soon playing venues all around the Bay Area and was one of the original psychedelic 60s groups developing the San Francisco Sound that reached maturity during the Summer of Love. They played both the Fillmore and Avalon Ballrooms and toured extensively. Tom left to finish his education and Larry Duncan took over drums until his return. Teddy left the band before a tour back East. Following that, "The Wildflower" toured Canada with "The Youngbloods" and recorded with producer Jerry Corbitt. Just when it seemed their commercial success was secure, they disbanded.
Featured in movies and documentaries about the S.F. rock scene and immortalized in psychedelic poster art, the Wildflower remains a part of the colorful tapestry that was the magic of the sixties CD $12 SKU:21107

WOODEN LION -ST (unreleased 70s heavy psych )Label:AUDIO ARCHIVES On CD, here's one of the rarest previously unreleased heavy psych album from the early '70s UK underground by the original five-piece band. Painstakingly re-mastered from the only surviving acetate, you get long, tripped-out tracks with an early Hawkwind feel, toughened by dark vocals that combine to make this a cosmic-doom classic. Highlights include the atmospheric 'Ice Maiden', the spaced-out 'She Paints Strange Pictures' and their notorious tour de force, the lengthy three-part 'McAlistairess Phantoms'. Plenty of rare band shots, items of memorabilia and detailed sleeve notes included in this long lost forgotten classicCD $14 SKU:21108

RESTOCKS

AKA-DO WHAT YOU LIKE (Indonesian '70s heavy psych rock)Label:GRANADILLA MUSIC AKA might have been one of the top acts of the Indonesian rock scene in the late '60s and early '70s. It does not necessarily mean that any international audience for heavy rock and psychedelic sounds would have noticed that back then but we change that now. 'Do What You Like' is a colorful album with a diversity of moods. Of course you find hard driving, wild grooving rock with simmering guitars and pumping rhythms. Go to the next song and some gentle, nearly ethereal dreamy psyche pop will alter your mind. Another step ahead on the tracklist and some easy and melodic 60s beat makes you want to dance the night away. The special factor of this album is the musical flavor of Indonesian pop that all of the songs sung in their native tongue show, while the few English tracks can compete against all of the popular hits from those days from American or European acts. AKA know how to heat you up with their psychedelic sound explosions and eruptive beats. They also know how to calm you down again and lay your soul to rest in a flow of gentle harmonies. Fans of 60s power pop with a regional feel presented by bands such as OMEGA from Hungary and of the 60s US west coast psyche and pop scene will go crazy about this record CD $12 SKU:20862

AKA-REFLECTION (Indonesian '70s heavy psych rock)Label:GRANADILLA MUSIC Fans of 60s US west coast dream pop who may stand heavier tunes and devoted music lovers who go for the classic 60s and early 70s sound will go nuts! AKA might have been one of the top acts of the Indonesian rock scene in the late '60s and early '70s. It does not necessarily mean that any international audience for heavy rock and psychedelic sounds would have noticed that back then but we change that now. A beautiful reissue with lush epic ballads, powerful heavy rock, a great beat tune with a flowery feel that drags you straight to the dancehall and another epic, yet utterly heavy blues rock and psyche freak out track that makes this a colourful album to spin on your stereo. Fans of 60s US west coast dream pop who may stand heavier tunes and devoted music lovers who go for the classic 60s and early 70s sound will go nuts CD $12 SKU:20863

AMAZING - WAit for a Light (Swedish psych pop ) - Label:SUBLIMINAL SOUNDS (SWEDEN) Gatefold digipack. Brand new recordings of Swedish Folk-Rock-Psych-Pop perfection. The Amazing fell far from the tree. A natural process: coming together through affection, then slowly crystallising into a folk-rock-psych-pop- collective slowly pushing, bending then playing with any preconceived notions of pop. Friends first and foremost, its this kindred spirit that imbues the bands debut with a feeling unlike that of most releases - one of natural harmony, persistent progression and with a panoramic gaze fixed on distant settings. Their 2009 debut album has received unanimous critical acclaim worldwide. This is their follow up a new mini-album with an all-encompassing sonic soundscape of groovy electric folk rock, psychedelic pop and heavy jams. The core musicians in The Amazing are Christoffer Gunrup, Reine Fiske, who doubles as the lead guitar wizard in Dungen and whos solos so furiously its as if somethings trapped inside him that must be turned into melody or hell burst into flames, Johan Holmegard (who doubles as the drummer in Dungen too) and Fredrik Swahn. With special guests including some of Swedens finest musicians; Gustav Ejstes (Dungen) and Moussa Fadera (Life on Earth!) amongst others, nothing on Wait for a light to come is introverted or overworked - everything is balanced, kept together by natural melodies, soulful vocals and just how perfect should be. The Amazing is a feeling, an organic consequence of something that effortlessly came together, the start of a quite extraordinary tale. CD $12 SKU:20914

DRAGONMILK-WOLFMAN MACABRE (prog/psych 1972) Label:AUDIO ARCHIVES An updated edition of this ripsnorting prog/psych period piece, recorded in 1972 and taken from the original tapes. This atmospheric live recording really captures the moment and was made under the band's auspices to help gain a recording contract.

GEINOH YAMASHIROGUMI -OSOREZAN/DOH NO KEMBAI1976 kraut'ish psych)Label:LEEMOON REISSUE on CD! Japanese collective Geinoh Yamashirogumi was formed in 1974 and kept on playing 'til the early '90s. Originally released in 1976, the debut-LP was a kraut'ish psych affair, sounding like a collage made with strange noises, screams and odd rhythmical patterns, but also influences from progressive rock, funk, jazz and exotica. A very intriguing and far from ordinary work CD $12 SKU:20866

GRAPHITE -CHESTNUT LOKE (69 ACID FREAKS)-Label:AUDIO ARCHIVES Graphite was a spaced-out, progressive, acid-freak band that formed at Reading University in 1969. Between 1970 and 1974 the group made a bunch of recordings of its Mellotron drenched, cosmic prog-rock material. The CD comes with a band history and rare photographs. CD $10 SKU:20989

GWYDION -THE FAERIE SHAMAN (70s hippie fol) -Label:GRANADILLA MUSIC Gwydion Pendderwen is one of the more chatoyant figures of the folk music underground and it is a shame actually that we have to label his works underground for what he laid down on both of his albums 'Songs For The Old Religion' (1975) and 'The Faerie Shaman' (1982). It was far above the average standard folk of his time, especially on this, his second album from 1982. The confessing neo paganist and environmentalist tried a different path seven years after his rather haunting debut album by mixing bluegrass, country, gospel and dixie into the classic folky singer/songwriter tunes of enchanting beauty. Most of the time the atmosphere on this album is rather friendly and lightweight in the sense of bright melodies and a cheerful mood on most tunes. Just take a walk in spirit through the garden of sound created by the delicate arrangements and rich, mostly acoustic instrumentation. Will you ever wish to return to what people consider as reality? I would doubt that. This album breathes a flamy joy of life and you would not think it was shortly after that Gwydion Pendderwen lost his life in a car accident. The music presented on 'The Faerie Shaman' literally swallows you like a river and you may ride like a Valkyrie upon the raging waters or dive deep inside and be enchanted by the magic world beyond the surface. This should have been a classic and it is a real gem for fans of Planxty, Hamish Imlach, Dulcimer, Pentangle and Steeleye Span CD $10 SKU:20874

IGRA STAKLENIH PERLI-VRT SVETLOSTI 70s psychedelic masterpiece.)-Label:ATLANTIDE Reissue of impossible to find psychedelic masterpiece. Made in the mid 70's in old Yugoslavia. This is one of the best Pink Floyd-esque psychedelic albums. Second album by this Yugoslavian band from 1980, typical in sound, style and emotional expression for the classic Eastern European progressive sound CD $12 SKU:20868

LYRES- A Promise Is a Promise (1988 GARAGE)-Label:MUNSTER RECORDS (SPAIN) Munster reissues the third Lyres LP, originally released on Ace of Hearts, from 1988. CD $10 SKU:14875

NEBULA-DEMOS & OUTTAKES 98-02(psych heavy rock power trio)Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Includes 5 tracks that have never seen the light of day before (!!), alongside rare demos as well as cover songs such as the unique live version of Black Flag's 'Nervous Breakdown'! Beside these never published demos to date, the known tracks on this album are different to what Nebula originally released on their previous records such as on 'Charged' or 'To The Center'. Some tracks were written and recorded in these sessions, some never made it on any of these or were used for B-sides and singles, and then we get songs such as 'Whalefinger' which has been the first song Eddie Glass ever wrote and which originally made it on a 7" B-side by Olivelawn, where Eddie has been playing drums for. CD $14 SKU:20800

ORANGE DROP -STONED IN LOVE (Dreamy psych acid laced sounds) Label:MEGA DODO Hailing from Philadelphia, The Orange Drop blends dreamy psychedelia with some darker, acid-laced sounds of the '60s. Brian Jonestown Massacre fans (particularly of the early records) should appreciate The Orange Drop's approach that is both lo-fi and polished. If this is garage rock, it was made in a garage that conceals an amateur LSD lab. Orange Drop re-invents '60s psychedelia with a 21st century twist of experimentalism! CD $16 SKU:20992

POP MASINA - KISELINA (Yogoslavian Grand Funk style 1973) Label:ATLANTIDE They're comin' to your town to rock your party down. They're a Yugoslavian band. And the name is POP MASINA! They have the Grand Funk running through their veins while cruising down the railroad with a steaming iron horse and there is even more in it that will make your heart pump the blood faster. POP MASINA were one of the most outstanding 70s rock and hard rock acts from former Yugoslavia and knew to combine groovy power songs with ethereal ballads and dreamy psyche tunes to blow your mind. The gentle songs show an unearthly beauty and drag you into spiritual depths you never explored before. When POP MASINA go for more power in their performance they lay down an earth shaking groove upon which the guitars and organs get into a wild dance with each other. And especially the vocals with lyrics in their native tongue prove the pop sensibility of the band with memorable melodies that still dig down deep into your soul to light a fire there. And POP MASINA do not even stop before some wicked and twisted jazzy progressive rock to add even more colors to the already shiny and adventurous music. Fans of bands like LOCOMOTIV GT from Hungary, PHOENIX from Romania and US rock in the vein of SIR LORD BALTIMORE, BLOODROCK and GRAND FUNK RAILROAD will find joy and passion in this band. CD $12 SKU:20870

POP MASINA -NA IZVORU SVETLOSTI (hard rock)Label:ATLANTIDE n the mid-'70s Yugoslavia was a country with a very rich musical landscape, especially in the field of rock and hard rock. Somewhere in between both categories POP MASINA have found their place. 'Na Izvoru Svetlosti' is their second album and again shows the two faces of this legendary band. There are steaming and rough edged hard rock compositions and a live recording of a sleazy, boiling heavy blues that shatters your soul with its rough and crunchy feel despite the really transparent and voluminous sound. Embedded in between those ripping guitar driven beasts you find a few more solemn and gentle pieces that grab your heart instantly with their dreamy and longing harmonies. No matter if these pieces are dressed in lush arrangements of organ and string quartet patterns or float through your soul with a relaxed west coast groove and beautiful slide guitars, your heart will open wide and be filled with love in sheer purity. POP MASINA really go for this diversity to blow your mind with a kaleidoscope of sounds and feelings. Even within some of the heavy scorchers you have mellow sections with a thought provoking, slightly melancholic mood. And this works utterly well with one who loves picturesque rock music that drives visions to ones mind while listening. Fans of Hungarian gods OMEGA, mellow kraut hard rock like JANE, EPITAPH or KIN PING MEH and eastern power pop in the vein of CZESLAW NIEMEN will go nuts for this smoker! CD $12 SKU:20871

SAN UL LIM THE SECOND (1977 Pebbles style psych power pop garage) - Label:WORLD PSYCHEDELIA (Korea) A CD-reissue of a 'Pebbles'-styled garage/psych-pop LP by a Korean band, originally released in 1978. The compositons are straight to the point, with fuzzed out guitars and Farfisa organ. This LP is recommended to all fans of '60s style garage and psych sounds from exotic -or unexpected- places.. CD $12 SKU:20873

SAVANNA (UK- COLLECTED MADNESS (rare private press psych-folk 1973)Label:AUDIO ARCHIVES On CD, this is an impossibly rare private press psych-folk LP, originally released in 1973 thru the Deroy custom pressing plant. The band combined spellbinding 12-string guitars, harpsichord and occasional bass to outstanding effect on an album brimming with original songs that displays creative charm amid gusts of melancholia. You ghet extended tracks with thought provoking vocals, more or less similar to Red Television and Ferris Wheel, only more accomplished from start to finish. A minor classic! CD $12 SKU:20994

SOUL EXPLOSION-SOUL FIRE(late 60s psych soul mystery)Label:GRANADILLA MUSIC One of the great mysteries of late '60s psychedelic soul music! Though only released on the German exploitation market in 1968, this exceptional album may very well be the work of an American studio outfit (or Americans living in Germany?), performing exclusive songs written by well known US composers such as Martin Siegel and Scott English. The material is rather diverse, but most of the music here is high quality soul music, often -especially on Side 2- with scorching psychedelic guitarwork and/or swirling organ parts. But there also are traces of pop and you even get a Dylan-esque slice of folk-rock. Odd, exciting and unique CD $10 SKU:20875

TEEN TRASH #11 -STRANGE FLOWERS (60s style garage psych)Label:MUSIC MANIAC The Strange Flowers are regarded as one of the most original and valuable acts of the psychedelic and garage scene in Europe. CD $5 SKU:10072

THREE-HEADED DOG-HOUND OF HADES(rare 1973 UK prog rock)Label:AUDIO ARCHIVES An ultra-rare recording from 1973 by this accomplished progressive-rock outfit who were part of the lively Birmingham Underground Rock Scene.

This CD includes a special synopsis of the thriving Brum Scene between 1965-75 documenting many of the other intriguing, yet little-known bands who were part of it. Fold out poster sleeve with an abundance of illustrations & memorabilia plus 4 mega-rare bonus tracks by several other Midlands bands including Stallion and Khayyam plus a special mystery track. CD $12 SKU:20995

TOBY TWIRL - ST (1968 UK pop psych) Label:MEGA DODO Originally from Newcastle, England, Toby Twirl was founded in 1968 and recorded three classic, and now highly collectable, singles for Decca in the late 1960s. This long overdue debut long-player mixes original songs with a selection of carefully curated hits of the day. The recordings were discovered by the band's drummer, John Reed, in a dusty box of reel-to-reel tapes in his attic. The band made several demo and showcase recordings at various studios in the late '60s, but they were thought lost forever. Reed's chance discovery uncovered a veritable goldmine of late '60s recordings by both line-ups of the band. Side 1 of the LP features vocalist Dave 'Holly' Holland, while side 2 features vocalist Steve Pickering. CD $15 SKU:20996

EXOTIC-O-RAMA + CD- VOL 2 Rare 45s from the 50s and 60s!-Label:JUKEBOX MUSIC FACTORY Exotic-O-Rama' is certainly the most absurd and out-of-the-ordinary, the most fun and convivial series of '50s and '60s tunes yet compiled by dear ole El Vidocq. And Volume 2 presents a selection even more audacious than its smashing predecessor. Embark upon an eclectic safari through a lush pacotille of melodies, from groovy R'n'B mangroves (The Ramrocks) home to nestling toucans (The Century Five), to head-shrinking rockers (Bob Vaught) and doo-wopping crocs (The El Capris), not to mention a few veritable birds of paradise (Rosco Gordon)... Wildlife worthy of an Ed Wood flick! But while the ambiance often turns outrageous, keep in mind that these exotic ditties were concocted by the same trailblazing performers who would inspire Lux Interior of The Cramps and Fred Schneider of the B-52s... While most of the groups comprise colorfully daubed Yanks, there's also a stray Italian (Franco Ei "G5") and a passel of playful Mexicans (The Stardusters). The album art, signed Jampur Fraize, is one of the most sumptuous to date, which is saying something. Yet another tangy treat for the eyes and ears, brought to you by El Vidocq and his vine-swinging comrades.. COMP LP $24 SKU:20945

TINGLEY,MIKE-ABSTRACT PRINCE (1968 pop-psych gem) Label:BLANK Finally reissued on vinyl (with reproduced cover artwork) is a delightful, heavily orchestrated, baroque-tinged pop-psych gem, originally released in 1968 by Decca in The Netherlands only. Hailing from the south of California, musician Mike Tingley travelled Europe, but soon found himself stranded in Amsterdam, ofcourse flat broke. In order to earn some money he started playing small coffee houses and bars. An influential A&R manager got tipped, which resulted in a superb album, recorded with some of Holland's top studio musicians and with involvement from producer Tony Vos (also known from the psychedelic days of a.o. Boudewijn de Groot and Cuby & The Blizzards). 'The Abstract Prince' is wholeheartedly recommended to fans of a.o. The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper', Love's 'Forever Changes', The Zombies' 'Odyssey & Oracle' and the legacies of The Left Banke, Billy Nicholls, Mystic Astrologic Crystal Band, Merry-Go Round and the like. In other words, this is a truly essential LP for genre freaks! LP $28 SKU:20741
