BIG MIDNIGHT/ RICHMONDSLUTS-Everything For The First Time (great power pop )-Label:ALIVE Nice power pop/garage album from Shea & Chris from Richmond Sluts. Big Midnight is yet another band with shaggy hair and bad attitude joining such luminaries as the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Vue, Warlocks, the Agenda, and Richmond Sluts in the retro-as-if-retro-never-happened category. “Think Iggy doing the Stones a la Sin City and you'll know just what to expect from Big Midnight on the album 'Everything for the First Time'. With a sound that knocks spots off the current scuzzy would-be 60's garage bands, it's loud and proud. As lovingly put together as a Sire-period Groovies record.” - Bucketfull of Brains CD $15 SKU:21997

MONOCLES /HIGHER ELEVATION - THE SPIDER, THE FLY & THE BOOGIEMAN (psych 60s ) -Label:GEAR FAB As promised in the liner notes from Psychedelic States: Colorado In The 60s, here is the complete story of The Monocles and their earlier incarnation, The Higher Elevation. 31 Tracks, many of them never before released, from the Greeley, Colorado band that used to drive around in a Hearse!! Hard rocking and psychedelic music From 1966-1970!! CD $10 SKU:19930

MONTES-Cuando Brille El Tiempo (1974 Argentine rare psych rock )Label:Serie Collectors 1974 argentina, heavy trippy psych rock Reissue of classic rare psychedelic rock record from Argentina circa 1970. Very guitar-drenched in a Fraction kinda way, with westcoast overtones. Long tracks, stunnin hard guitar-odyssey effects, phased vocals, everything the mind boggles is here. Has nice surrealistic cover-art. CD $15 SKU:20289

MONTESANO -El Pasillo (1982 Argentine prog) -Label:RECORD RUNNER It was in the early eighties, when ex-Crucis keyboardist Gustavo Montesano ended his participation in "Merlin" (a band founded with Alejandro De Michele, and with whom he recorded a disc), and decided to create a new project, which was to combine traditional music and a taste for symphonic progressive rock. The result was the band Montesano, with his brother Marcelo on keyboards, Fernando Ortega of Marbella on bass, Marina Olmi on vocals, and Richard Giles on drums. Their sole album, “El Pasillo,” was released early in 1982. A refined progressive rock, full of nuances, with the music based upon carefully developed, delicate melodies. This mixing of Latin sophistication and elegance evokes Italians groups such as Premiata Forneria Marconi, Celeste, Quella Vecchia Loccanda with superb aerial guitar parts ala Santana and delicate keyboards lines. The CD includes two unreleased tracks from Crucis. An album that deserves to be rediscovered and appreciated to understand a little more of one of the great artists of progressive rock from Argentina. CD $16 SKU:20341

MONTESANO, GUSTAVO -Homenaje (1977 ARGENTINE RARITY) -Label:RECORD RUNNER Going for big bucks elsewhere! Montesano was the bassist and primary composer of Crucis, and his debut solo album "Homenaje" (1977) was made in the slipstream of Crucis' second album "Los Delirios del Mariscal." The rest of Crucis contribute, as do many other notable Argentinean rock musicians of the time. The opening instrumental 'Sinfonia Lunatica' and the subsequent vocal number 'Cuando la duda se hace grande alrededor' are the album's highlights, full of lively melodies, sunny Mellotron and synthesizer layers and excellent guitar work from Pino Marrone which highlights the melodic side of his playing. The vocal parts on the poppy 'La última barrera' and the piano ballad 'Desde que te pude ver' are a bit marshmallowy, even if the instrumental parts on the latter (including a real string section) are inspired. The rest of the album divides itself between two majestically droning instrumentals and the up-tempo rocker 'Primer triunfo,', which has Genesis-like penchant for driving yet choppy rhythms, leaping synthesizers and solid chords. The end result is a very accessible and immediate symphonic album, not very complex in structures yet rich in arrangements and melodies. Argentina has produced stronger progressive rock (e.g. Bubu's "Anabelas", Pablo el Enterrador's first album), but unless complexity and intensity are what you are primarily looking for, you shouldn't ignore this satisfying little album. Two short, previously unreleased Crucis tracks have been added as a bonus on the CD version. These are close to the second album in sound, but lighter and simpler in style. Nice and jazzy and they push the CD past the 40-minute mark, so no complaints there. CD $15 SKU:20273

MOPS--Psychedelic Sounds in Japan (60s Japanese rock) -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

MORGEN- ST Essential 1969 psych w 8 bonus tracks a packed booklet and rare photos, essential for fans of psych! - Label:WORLD PSYCHEDELIA (Korea) One of the greatest heavy psych albums ever made, this mindblower has it all -- trippy songs, spacey production, ace musicianship and jaw-dropping guitar. It's presented here in its fullest-ever version, with the full involvement of the band's enigmatic leader, Steve Morgen. Featuring eight rare bonus tracks (including home recordings made by Morgen and guitarist Murray Shiffrin shortly after the album's December 1969 release), a packed booklet and rare photos, it's truly essential for fans of psychedelia.

NATIONAL WAKE- ST (80s South African rock)Label:FRESH National Wake, the band Ian Kadey led in the late 70s and early 80s, were South Africa's first, and indeed only, multiracial punk band. CD $14 SKU:20406

NOSFERATU -ST (early psych Krautrock 1970)-Label:OHRWASCHL Early Krautrock album (1970) with a heavy and raw sound alleviated by well-chosen psychedelic elements, with the benefit of being engineered by the legendary Konrad Plank; a few tracks offer up some trippy grooves, but the group tends to lean towards an Anglo-American approach, with prominent flute and sax, and English vocals; in spite of this obvious Anglo influence, the group manages to create a unique sound. This can be attributed to the creation of unusual riffs and rhythms, as well as the sax and flute versus organ ratio; an impossibly rare album first released on the Vogue label, and now one of the most sought after Krautrock records; the famously sinister cover captures the darkness of the music. CD $15 SKU:21433

NOSTRADAMOS-ST (1972 Greek folk/rock band) Label:WORLD PSYCHEDELIA Only record from short-lived Greek folk/rock band Nostradamos, originally released on Zodiac in 1972. As the booklet text says, “they made one record, being a quiet record, where the beautiful woman’s voice of Despina Glezou makes a transparent impression, in songs which integrate Greek song styles into the elements of American rock and pop music. There are delicate parts, there are groovy parts—but throughout the album there is a wonderful and a standardized impression. The melodies overflow. The wind that blows is an agreeable one. Other than guitar, bass and drums, there is violin and Hammond, the flute and something that sounds like French horn. It seems like pathos, it seems like folk rock, it seems that what we can all like is in all the band’s pop songs. Whatever you like, maybe you don’t stop wanting to hear this strange record. You can hear it now with sufficiently good sound, with the delicate nuance in evidence. It is transmitted.” All perfectly true! Despina Glezou was a former member of the band Poll who had also worked with George Romanos, Socrates (on the rare "Live At Kyttaro" LP), Dionysis Savvopoulos, and Bourboulia; she makes her claim as most important woman in Greek rock history with her work on this record. Brief band history and discography included in a minimal booklet. CD $10 SKU:20398

PAJARO-Pajarito Zaguri y La Murga del Rock & Roll (Founder of Argentine rock, hard hitting acid blues) 2 ONLY -Label:FONOCAL Considered one of the founders of the Argentine rock. He joined several pioneering bands of the genre, including The Los Beatniks, Los Náufragos y La Barra de Chocolate. In 1976, Pajarito pulled together a band of hard rockers to make this album, hard-hitting acid blues rock in a Pappo's Blues vein. If you're hip to Pappo's albums, you should grab this one before it goes away. CD $16 SKU:20275

PEP GIRLZ- Down N Dirty (all girl NY garage-trash hcore punk Label:ALIVE ST Mid-90s NY garage-trash-hardcore by this all girl punk band. They never got to tour, and it's too bad because they were amazing. Do not confuse with the AC/DC tribute band with the same name ... CD $5 SKU:4464

PERERIN -TEITHGAN (1981 Welsh psych folk-rockers)Label:GUERSSEN Awesome second longplayer by Welsh psychedelic folk-rockers Pererin. Traditional Welsh folk meets rock with psychedelic guitar leads, flute, male/female vocals... This was originally released in 1981 on the Gwerin label and for many it is their best work, and it's definitely its rarest one. Definitely one of the best albums of the genre, another superb rarity brought to you with a legit reissue by Guerssen. CD comes with booklet, jewelcase with outer carton slimcase cover. CD $12 SKU:21115

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

TROGGS -From Nowhere /Trogglodynamite-Label:BGO The first two British Troggs LPs combined onto one disc on this 26-track CD, with the addition of historical liner notes. Four of the cuts on "From Nowhere” —and more than half of “Trogglodynamite” — never came out in the U.S., and collectors have sometimes wondered why “Trogglodynamite" in particular was not more heavily represented on compilations or reissues.

ALEXANDER, WILLIE - Solo Loco (Test Pressing) WAREHOUSE FIND -Label:Bomp Records 1981. Willie "Loco" Alexander (born 13 January 1943 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American singer and keyboard player based in Gloucester, Massachusetts. He played with The Lost, The Bagatelle and The Grass Menagerie before becoming a member of The Velvet Underground in late 1971, joining fellow Grass Menagerie alumni Doug Yule and Walter Powers and replacing Sterling Morrison, who had gone off to pursue an academic career. With the Velvet Underground, Alexander toured England, Scotland and The Netherlands in support of then-current album Loaded. After completing the tour on November 21, 1971 in Groningen, the band planned to start recording a new album, but band manager Steve Sesnick sent all of the band but Yule home, presumably to retain maximum control of the product (the resulting album was Squeeze, released in 1973) and effectively ending Alexander's time with the band. After leaving The Velvet Underground, he enjoyed a chequered career, both solo and with his Boom Boom Band, that lasts to this day. In-between, Alexander teamed up with Powers to tour France in 1982 for French punk record label New Rose Records, in 1987 opening for Dramarama and in 2006 for a tour with the legendary Boom Boom band. In addition to his storied music career, in 1994, Willie narrated a local film entitled Middle Street made by fellow Gloucester native, independent filmmaker, Henry Ferrini. Willie has also contributed many songs to the soundtracks for Henry's other films. LP $15 SKU:10176

BARRACUDAS-ST (POWERPOP ltd ed OF 100 color vinyl)Label:NDN As a cursory look at radio playlists and cult whisperings will attest, The Barracudas reappearance after so long could not be better timed. Garage music is in fashion (again) and so is surf (well, Brian Wilson, and let's face it they might as well be synonymous). Power pop, likewise, from a 45 grave, has risen to reassert its importance. Indeed, all the styles the band have mastered and made their own are now current and selling. And another thing: The Barracudas sounds younger than yesterday but with experience supplying an edge that cuts across time to the heart of the band. LP $10 SKU:4392

BRAINBOX- Dark Rose (60s Dutch psych ) - Label:PSEUDONYM It comes packaged in a magnificent gatefold-cover with rare photos and liner-notes including exclusive interview material. Remastered in the 24-bit domain from the original master tapes. Brainbox was something special. The band not only featured some of the Netherlands' most preternaturally talented musicians, but in less than three years they produced a recorded legacy that was truly world class. Much of their best work appeared on their 1969-71 singles, which have been compiled on this definitive 2-LP collection, pressed on 180gm vinyl and dynamically re-mastered from the original tapes. The original lineup with lead-guitarist Jan Akkerman, bassist Andr Reijnen, drummer Pierre van der Linden and vocalist extraordinaire Kaz Lux deliver the goods on pile-driving blues rock songs like 'Down Man' and 'Dark Rose,' and the hard-hitting Hendrix-inspired rocker 'Amsterdam, The First Days' -- all presented in their original mono mixes. After Akkermans departure, Brainbox expanded its musical palette with guitarists Rudy de Queljoe (ex-Dragonfly) and John Schuursma (ex-Rob Hoekes R&B Group), recording memorable tracks like 'Between Alpha And Omega,' 'Doomsday Train,' 'Mobilae' and the blisteringly powerful 'Virgin.' Dark Rose / Their 45s also includes previously unreleased demo-versions of 'Virgin,' 'Dark Rose' and the epic 'Sea Of Delight.' LP $26 SKU:14720

RATIONALS--10” Temptation Bout to get Me (60s Detroit ) SAALE -Label:TOTAL ENERGY LAST COPIES When serious collectors compose lists of the top shoulda-been-bigger bands of the '60s, the Rationals are often among them. Coming out of the same Ann Arbor, MI scene that gave birth to the MC5 and the Stooges, the group's forte was a sort of garageish take on blue-eyed soul, built around the fine RB-hued vocals of frontman Scott Morgan. Their mid-'60s singles, however, didn't break in many areas outside of Michigan (where they had some big local hits), and by the time they got to record an album, they had long passed their peak.the Rationals actually predated the MC5/Stooges by quite some time, both chronologically and stylistically. When they began recording for the local A2 label in 1965, they were, like many garage bands, heavily influenced by the British Invasion, although they gave their material a more soulful flavor than most similar units. "Gave My Love" was a chart-topper in Ann Arbor (and a hit in Detroit), as was a follow-up single of "Respect" (which predated Aretha Franklin's version). Picked up for national distribution by Cameo/Parkway, it nudged into the lowest regions of the national charts as well.” LP $10 SKU: 22014
