COOLEY MUNSON- In Debt (70s So Cal. hippie psych ) -Label:GUERSSEN RECORDS Bill Cooley and Alan Munson were two friends in Santa Barbara, California, living their early 20s writing folk-rock songs for their pleasure. That was 1972, and they decided to put these songs into the studio, self-produce the album and press a tiny quantity of 500 pieces hoping it could help getting a contract with a major company. This never happened, as you would have guessed, and sure this fact helped making their sole album, In Debt, a major collectable item in the folk-rock and psychedelic rock listeners and collectors. Today, original copies of this record fetch quite interesting sums when changing hands in record fairs or internet auctions. Being a private pressing, you can easily imagine it's not a big production, but no care. This album has the right feel and you won't need anything else to make it one of your faves. All tracks are original compositions, and the style is very personal. It's folk-rock, but many tracks are quite psychedelic too, in their own way. But don't look close for influences, they will not come to mind that easily. Bill and Alan had their own psychedelic folk-rock style, and the raw, sometimes amateurish feel that these recordings have give the album the final distinctive touch. Never reissued before in any format, now here we come with a splendid reissue, with the collaboration of the guys. Remastered sound taken from the master tapes, CD version comes with booklet and outer slimcase. Alan Munson kept going the folk-rock way and released two solo albums during the '70s too, which we are also re-releasing along with In Debt CD $12 SKU:7814

FLIPPERS- PRONTO VIVEREMOS UN MUNDO MUCHO.(Columbian 60s/70s Psych)-Label:GUERSSEN One of Colombia's better known 60s & 70s groups is Los Flippers. But few people outside Colombia knows about this wonderful 1973 album they did. Its probably because it was self-released by their leader Arturo Astudillos own label rather than the bigger labels they used before, hence low sales. But in any case, its no doubt a great album that must be heard. The music on this album is quite special, as it blends psychedelia with progressive sound and soul as well. With a very good production, here we find Los Flippers at their peak of inspiration and being now a bunch of very experimented musicians. The result is much more mature than any of their previous works of course, and they really achieved a sound that ranges with any supergroup. With all original compositions except a Buddy Miles cover, they used a good dose of psychedelic effects and some tasty horns as well. As an addition, this first ever reissue comes with a killer bonus track from an earlier 45, with a killer sound reminiscent of Iron Butterfly. Remastered sound from tapes (except the bonus track), and insert with liners by Arturo Astudillo. CD $12 SKU:10036

GARRIE,NICK -49 ARLINGTON GARDENS (70s folk psych) Label: ELEFANT British musician Nick Garrie is best known for his 1968 psych-folk cult LP 'The Nightmare Of J.B. Stanislas'. His album '49 Arlington Gardens', here presented on CD, was recorded in 2009, with contributions from members of Teenage Fanclub and BMX Bandits. CD $16 SKU:19851

GIOBIA -NIGHT SOUND (neo-psychedelic-rock)-Label:SULATRON Debut full length album by Giobia, the new psychedelic sensation from Milano, Italy! Giobia celebrate a intense neo-psychedelic-rock, who is deeply inspired by the sound of the late sixties and shoegaze. Next to Guitars, Bass, Drums and Organ they use Sitars, vintage Keyboards and Effects to create a colourful and swirling sound. Their vocals are often in the background to produce a more far out athmosphere. They play tight and punchy as well as relaxed and floating in higher spheres. All that filled with love and passion for their music. Also they made some excellent coversongs of Electric Prunes and Santana and show their creativity and individuality. A very tasty album and a true highlight in the growing Sulatron-history! The trippy coverdesign is made by Lulu Artwork!, the bassplayer of Electric Moon. The mastering is done by krautrocklegend Eroc. CD $16 SKU:20243

GOLDEN GRASS - ST (70s style power trio)-Label:SVART Debut album! Special LP replica sleeve. The glory of American hard rock has returned with the debut eponymous album by THE GOLDEN GRASS! This Brooklyn-based power-trio is the real deal, and their LP harkens back to the golden age when heavy rock music was upbeat, skillfully played, energetic, edgy, and bursting with goodtime sunshine vibes. They come hard with a strong backbone of deep-pocket funky flare and an earnest/uplifting southern/country/mountain rock vibe, layered with waves of psychedelic textures that explode into jaw-dropping proto-metal moves. And throughout their progressive arrangements and timeless grooves are lush and powerfully delivered vocals, stacked with gorgeous harmonies and maddeningly catchy verses and choruses singing the tales of real-life loves, losses, and the drive to keep on keepin on! This album is a sure treat for fans of classic underground hard rock such as Truth and Janey, Dust, and Josefus as well as fans of classic UK psychedelia such as The Move, The Pretty Things, and Mighty Baby. THE GOLDEN GRASS will also greatly appeal to folks into the contemporary sounds of Danava, Horisont, Graveyard, and Dead Man. CD $12 SKU:20128

GOLDEN RING- ST -Iranian Styled 60's Garage & Other Exotic Sounds: Complete Recordings-Label:PERSIANNA As collectors continue to explore and discover new music from around the world, one country that's starting to gain momentum is Iran. Iran has been a mystery to collectors for many years, and even today it remains a blackbox to most. Within the rubbles of Iran's lost musical history comes Golden Ring, one of the first, and most prodominent Iranian garage groups from the '60s. Based in Teheran, Golden Ring recorded and released a series of songs on 7" during the late 60's and early 70's before disbanding. They were one of the first Iranian bands to be influenced by Western music such as The Beatles, combining traditional Iranian instrumentation and melodies with structures found in UK and North American rock and pop. This combination resulted in an Iranian take on garage music during the genre's climax. One of the members of Golden Ring, Arif, later went on to become a solo artist, and over time became one of the legendary artists within Irans musical landscape. His solo material spread across 45's, soundtracks and generations of fans. Sadly Golden Ring never recorded or released a full length album, but through a lot of hard work and effort we are pleased to offer a full length compilation of Golden Ring's music for you to enjoy. Limited to 500 copies CD $14 SKU:14335

HEAVY GLOW -PEARLS & SWINE AND EVERYTHING FINE (Classic fuzz rock trio)-Label:KOZMIK ARTIFACT HEAVY GLOW from Cleveland, Ohio is a classic rock trio that delivers its rock with a fresh and modern vibe, built on a foundation of fuzz-fueled hard rock, appointed with psychedelically-tinted blues and beautifully textured washes of Motown/Memphis soul. CD $14 SKU:20133

INTERKOSMOS-HYPNOTIZER(swirly psych acid madness-Label:SULATRON Sprawling space sounds tell stories of far galaxies - the music fuses single intstruments into each other and the sound gets a swirly acid madness. This is psychedelic music without being bound to certain stylistic directions: what matters is the flow. A wonderful soundtrack for a journey to the far out vastnesses of the inner cosmos. Interkosmos was founded in 2008 by Sula Bassana (Electric Moon, Zone Six, Krautzone) on bass, Pablo Carneval (formerly Electric Moon, The Blowing Lewinsky) on drums und Sergio Ceballos (RIP KC) on guitar. CD $16 SKU:20244

KIKAGAKU MOYO- ST (Japanese 60s style psych)- Label:GURUGURU BRAIN Repress on the band's own label! This Tokyo-based band started channeling the spirits of the Japanese psychedelic underground in the Summer of 2012, quickly developing the sound of '60s psychedelia to a breathtaking degree. The band's s/t debut exerts an elemental power. Enlivening its sound with sitars, percussive drums, theremins, wind instruments and ethereal vocals, the band manages to sound powerfully spacious and lazily serene all at once. CD $17 SKU:20187

MISTY HUSH REVIVAL- Your Heart Is Broken (60s rarity Acid Archives fave) - Label:GUERSSEN RECORDS (SPAIN) One of the most obscure US private pressings from the late 60s / early 70s.

Fleischer CD $12 SKU:14044

MUNSON, ALAN - FIRST LIGHT (70s psych rock) -Label:GUERSSEN RECORDS And heres the last of the 70s works by our friend Munson! This one got released in 1979, again in small quantities, on the Parallax label in California. The "First light" album doesnt easily fit into a music category box. The songs range from psych rock, to some fairly "laid back" folk-rock, and even a song with a country rock feel. Instruments played on the record include electric and acoustic guitars, electric bass and drums. Lead solos are all played on electric guitar; a "clean" sound on the acoustic based songs and guitar effects were used on the psych rock songs. Strong lead vocals and background harmony vocals, all in all making another excellent album as result. Also one unreleased bonus track is added, all remastered from the original tapes. First time ever reissue as well, the CD comes with a booklet, and outer carton slimcase. CD $12 SKU:20126

MY EDUCATION -Sunrise (Texas psych advanced ecstacy)Label:STRANGE ATTRACT Described as "advanced ecstacy" by David Fricke in the pages of Rolling Stone, Austin, Texas instrumentalists My Education create sweeping, cinematic music evocative and of the high-lonesome expanse of the Texas Hill Country landscape they call home. Formed in 1999 and comprised of former members of Austin-area psych mainstays Stars of the Lid, ST37 and Cinders, the band has since played over 300 shows all over the United States, alongside like-minded artists Pelican, The Black Angels, Six Organs of Admittance, A Place to Bury Strangers, Isis and many others. Three full-length albums, several compilation appearances and multiple singles are to their credit, including a must-have 12" vinyl collaboration with avant hip-hop act Dalek released last year. Additionally, My Education have received the remix treatment by Kinski, Pelican, Red Sparowes and the aforementioned Dalek, and even have composed an original score to the F.W. Murnau 1927 silent film Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, which premiered at the famed Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in March 2007. In short, the band has gotten around. CD $12 SKU:20124

OLYMPIC- EVERYBODY! (1965-68 Czech beat) Label:MUNSTER RECORDS (SPAIN) Formed in 1963, Olympic were the first Czech beat group to appear on vinyl in 1964, and the first to have an LP album in 1968.

This outstanding compilation presents their best tracks from their "classic" beat period 1965-1971. CD $12 SKU:20130

ONE WAY TICKET-Time Is Right (obscure 60s Brit psych)-Label:GUERSSEN Musically, its an odd album which ranges from late-sixties underground psych in the Chocolate Soup vein to freaky blues-psych not unlike Olivers "Standing Stone" with some glam-mod-psych and rockin tunes. It even features three tracks also covered by the legendary Five Day Rain on their rare album. Reissued with original artwork and remastered sound, insert with lyrics and 500 copies only. CD $12 SKU:20254

ORIENTAL SUNSHINE - DEDICATED TO THE BIRD WE LOVE (70s Norwegian psych folk) -Label:SUNBEAM! Korean import.

SCHIBBINZ - Livin Free (rare 1967 Argentine garage ) Label:GUERSSEN Previously released on vinyl, now available in a CD version. In 1967, a bunch of U.S. and Argentinean kids recorded a magical album which has remained unknown for many years due to its extreme rarity, with less than a handful of copies known to exist. Released in 1968 in Argentina by Phonexa, the Schibbinz album could be regarded as the ultimate teen garage folk-rock album, ever. An album of fragile beauty, full of teen charm, innocent vocals, jangly guitars, charming, lo-fi sound and a lost-in-time atmosphere. Guerssen Records is proud to present this mega-rare album to the world, with the production fully benefitting from the band's involvement and assistance. The original master tapes were lost, but the sound has been carefully-remastered from an original near-mint copy.

STONEBIRDS -Time(French heavy rock)-Label:ACID BUZZ Hailing from central Britanny (France), STONEBIRDS came out in 2008 as a quintet, inspired by both surrounding desolated landscapes and bands like Queens Of The Stone Age, Kyuss, The Melvins and Alice In Chains. The 2018 album "Time" confirms the band's unique style matured on "Into The Fog" and its ability to write deeply emotional and complex songs. Once again recorded at Kerwax, this record is darker and more contrasted with heavier metal parts and lighter atmospheric moments. STONEBIRDS asserts itself as a singular voice in heavy music landscapeCD $17 SKU:20177

TRAFFIC SOUND - Virgin (70s S American psych) digipack - Label:MUNSTER The second LP by Traffic Sound, released in 1969, is one of the masterpieces of Latin rock. On their first album with self-written songs, the band from Lima combined psychedelia, hard rock, a hint of progressive rock and a Latin tinge to create a personal, mighty sound full of details. The best example is Meshkalina, a track with references to Incan culture which became an anthem of the period and was heard all over Peru. The LP was a great success and even saw a US release. CD $14 SKU:20131

TROGGS- ON AIR: THE LOST BROADCASTS (60s Power pop psych)Label:VOGON Remembered chiefly as proto-punkers who reached the top of the charts with the "caveman rock" of 'Wild Thing' (1966), the Troggs were also adept at crafting power pop and ballads. Hearkening back to a somewhat simpler, more basic British Invasion approach as psychedelia began to explode in the late '60s, the group also reached the Top Five with their flower-power ballad 'Love Is All Around'. While more popular in their native England than the U.S., the band also fashioned memorable, insistently riffing hit singles like 'With A Girl Like You', and the notoriously salacious 'I Can't Control Myself'. Available for the first time on CD, this album includes unique live in the studio recordings of many of the Troggs' finest moments on wax. CD $17 SKU:20178

VELVET REVOLUTIONS- VOL. 2: 1968-1971 VA (Iron Curtain 60s psych!)- Label:PARTICLES Eastern bloc rock! 'Velvet Revolution Volume Two' celebrates the hugely innovative and unique sound that was engineered behind the infamous Iron Curtain in cold war Eastern Europe. Enigmatic, bizarre and genious are just a few words that could describe this music, yet they only offer brief praise of the overlooked craft created by a generation whose hindered hopes and dreams were recorded in the 1960s and 1970s. These sounds survive as monumental works in their own right and stand as a testament to their art whilst serving a lesson to those in the west who thought they knew it all. COMP CD $12 SKU:20137

It may take a little longer for the pebble to hit the water, but when it does there are still bucketfuls of lysergically treated fluid to draw up. You'll find Elton Johns rhythm section, Hungarys top psych band, an army PE instructor who thought he was the reincarnation of an Egyptian pharaoh, a Swedish Red Indian expert whose brother sold his records door to door, and the man who asked Where Do You Go To My Lovely? getting decidedly strange, plus a whole bunch of other psyched-out artistes.

HE & SHE -VA 2 FAR-OUT POP PSYCH DUOS from the late 60's!!-Label:Pet Records "It pretty much began with Sonny and Cher. When the teener template of Paul and Paula and Dick and Deedee got superimposed on the hip set, a new genre was born. The success of co-ed pairings like Mimi and Richard and Nino and April had coffee house folkies shacking up in droves and soon every town had it?s own dynamic duo. There were variations too. Paul and Mary found their Peter. John Phillips had two chicks so he had to find another Papa. But the sound was what made it, the call and response, the traded verses?love stories acted out over twelve-strings ringin?, like shaggy-topped Romeos and Juliets in tight slacks and pilgrim belts. You?ve heard some of the reissues?the Blackburns and Snows, the Jims and Jeans?their stories and music made public again after years in obscurity. Now hear the ones who didn?t quite crack the radio charts, at least not for long. The ones whose songs remain unsung. Heroes and heroines in the nightclubs and studio booths. Reaching out in the darkness, and the sunshine too. In love and touching forever. She and He. He and She." COMP CD $14 SKU:19730

GRAVEYARD TRAMPS EAT THE FORBIDDEN - Vol.1 CITY DOGFOOD Double 10” (obscure rockabilly, surf and R&B tracks)- Label:STAG-O-LEE (GERMANY) . Nearly 30 years ago, a now legendary LP by the name of 'Forbidden City Dogfood' was unleashed on an unsuspecting public. The release on Vip Vop Recs spawned many imitators such as 'Wavy Gravy', '4 Hairy Policemen' et al and paved the way for the equally legendary 'Purple Knif Show'. What few folk knew was that 'Forbidden City Dogfood' was actually less than half of the compilation made by Lux Interior. Now, for the very first time, the entire recording is available, weighing in at well over an hour of crazy, whacky sounds from the Maestro of Mad himself. Remastered from the original source, these obscure rockabilly, surf and R&B tracks are interspersed with B-movie trailer clips and wigged out voice overs. This one won't be around for long, so get it while you can. TRACKS: 01. John Buck & The Blazers - Forbidden City 02. The Kingpins - Ungawa 03. Florence Pepper - China Rock 04. Jack Costanzo - Cat Walk 05. Rick McGuire - Space Craze 06. Homer Denison Jr. - March Slav Boogie 07. Rod McKuen - Noisey Vilage 08. The Dynamos - Wow Wow Yea Yea 09. The Phantoms - Night Beat 10.

BRAINTICKET - COTTONWOODHILL (ACID PSYCH 1971 (+CD)Label:LILITH Repress! On 180-gram vinyl and coming with a bonus CD of the album. Being as LSD was first developed in a laboratory in Basel, it is perhaps no coincidence that one of the most "far out" albums of all time was made by this Swiss band (no small feat, given the competition!). Brainticket's 1971 debut, 'Cottonwoodhill', begins normally enough with two fine psychedelic/kraut rock-influenced tracks, but the remainder of the album plays like an acid trip with a soundtrack, dominated by Joel Vandroogenbroeck's endless droning organ, a variety of musique concrète-type sound effects and vocalist Dawn Muirs trippy vocals. The album, banned in several countries, even came with this self-imposed warning: "After Listening to this Record, your friends may not know you anymore." / "Only listen to this once a day, your brain might be destroyed!". LP $24 SKU:19708
