The Born Bad compilation series collects together the original music that inspired bands like The Cramps. You can’t go wrong with this series. It’s a great compilation series if you are curious to hear the original rockabilly and garage punk artists that inspired The Cramps, like Hasil Adkins, Wanda Jackson, Andre Williams, Charlie Feathers, and Richard Berry, with some later 60s groups thrown in every once in awhile, like The Sonics, Tommy James, Paul Revere, and the Kasenetz-Katz Super Circus.V

FLOWERZ-FLYTE 1967-1968 Garage Rock From Reading PALabel:ARF ARF This CD is proof why Reading, PA's Flowerz may be one of the coolest '60s combos this planet has ever produced. What sets Flowerz apart from the masses is they're just so damn good! Fortunately, this body of work recorded by engineer Clay Barclay captures their fired-up raw energy at its peak. Not only do Flowerz blossom with some mighty originals (Flyte, I Need Love Now, Talkin' About Love) but they plow through high-octane covers including plenty of Stones, Animals, Kinks, Byrds plus the rockin' hits of the day. Vocalist Jeff Stout bleeds teen spirit (Mick who') while the band kicks royal butt, creating a solid 10 on the Richter and Roll scale. (Attention garage-a-holics: No Justice mediocrity here.) Added bonus is priceless on-stage banter by local WXAC emcees during Flowerz performance on February 18th, 1968 at the Albright College Field House. All 22 tracks are actual studio recordings which were piped through the gymnasium's PA system while the band that night performed [mostly] in sync with the pre-recorded tape--thus creating twice the energy! A truly amazing historical document wrapped in a groovy 16-page fact-filled booklet.Flowerz rule! CD $10 SKU:11402


NOMADS-Made In Japan (hard rock punk garage legends, Recorded In Sweden 1995 ) Label:1&2 MADE IN JAPAN (RECORDED IN SWEDEN) 17 TRACKS OF LIVE ACTION GARAGE-PUNK! A live album from Sweden's hard rock/punk/garage legends, Made In Japan doesn't disappoint. The band wear their influences on their sleeves with pride, covering The Damned's "Fan Club", Alex Chilton's excellent "Bangkok", Link Wray's "Fire and Brimstone" and powering through their equally impressive originals.

RISING STORM- Calm Before Calm Before... / Alive Again At Andover(Crown Jewel of 60s garage) -Label:ARF ARF one of the rarest rock & roll records ever made! "Calm Before... remains one of the finest and most important LPs by a US’60s group, never mind one that was still attending high school when it was released on the privately-pressed Remnant label. From a cache of moody ballads tohighly-charged, all-out flashing teen rock, everything here is broodingly and sensationally played out, including highly-personalised covers of Love’s ‘Message To Pretty’, ‘In The Midnight Hour’ and The Remains’ gold-plated nugget ‘Don’t Look Back’. The album’s mix of deep beat-pop introspection and thoroughly intense modern R&B-instigated rock remains unique among most of their peers’long-play outings, and thus played a big part in the inordinately strong pull the group would have on many young ’60s-fixated longhairs in the ’80s and ’90s.” - Shindig Magazine.

VICTORS - Victorious ( pre LITTER! 60s Brit Invasion style)- Label:ARF ARF “Before there was the Litter, there were the Victors. Including two future members (bassist Jim Kane and vocalist Denny Waite) of that fab Minneapolis combo, the Victors didn’t have the psycho-destructo stage show, fiery sound, and psychedelicized pyrotechnics of their successors. But their repertoire of British Invasion covers laid the groundwork for the Litter, and they had the teen garage sound that propelled them to battle of the bands victories and into the hearts of garage fans when five unreleased recordings were first unearthed by Arf! Arf! on The Scotty Story (now out of print) in 1993 Victorious expands the Victors’ legacy with not only those five, but also 21 previously unreleased tracks, including eight relics from their beginnings as a surf-styled band, a stunning seven-song demo tape, five spirited covers from a 1966 rehearsal, and a raw romp through “Gloria” (or “G-L-O-O-R-A,” as they erroneously spelled it!) straight off an acetate. It also includes the now legendary 1965 Scotty single, “Beer Bust Blues” b/w “Scotch Mist,” in which four-fifths of the band (billed as the Scotsmen) romped as their friend Pete Lokken did his best “Surfin’ Bird”/“The Crusher” vomit-tone into the mikeVictorious traces the evolution of the Excelsior, Minn. miscreants from a ’64 surfy combo (named after a Dick Dale song, “The Victor”) following in the footsteps of the Trashmen and fellow Minnetonka high school pals the Ready Men and the Yetti Men to a British Invasion-styled combo covering Them and the Yardbirds in 1965—before it was cool It was all over for the Victors by 1966, but their legacy lived on when Kane and Waite joined former members of the Tabs to form the Litter, a band that grew from garage Yardbirds roots into one of the most innovative hard rock bands on the scene by the late ’60s—and that has been documented on four Arf! Arf! CDs. Victoriousadds to that legacy with 31 stompin’ tracks and an extensive 20-page book featuring tons of archival photos and graphics, a band history by Doug Sheppard of Ugly Things magazine, and recollections from their producer, Warren Kendrick, the man who wrote and produced the Litter’s definitive version of “Action Woman.” CD $10 SKU:27042

IGL ROCK STORY - VA PART 1 ( Iowa 60s garage pop ) sAALE! - Label:ARF ARF IGL is an acronym for the Iowa Great Lakes Recording Studio, the first one in that state. When the studio/record label scored big with Dee Jay and the Runaways' "Peter Rabbit" (included here along with other early tracks by the group) after leasing it to a major label, the bands came from all over the state and beyond, hoping lightning would strike for them too. On this sumptuous collection of 31 tracks we hear the first fruits of such studio recordings, capturing the more notable bands from 1965 to 1967. The IGL studio had a crude, echoey sound that made drums sound enormous and vocals reverberate all over the place, but as a scrapbook of the studio's early days and Iowa's mid-'60s output, this collection is invaluable. Cub Koda, All Music Guide COMP CD $10 SKU:23444

IGL ROCK STORY - Vol 2 -Iowa's Premiere Teen Label 67-68 SAALE! - Label:ARF ARF Part Two of the story of Iowa's premier label of the sixties concentrates on some of the more commercial output of the late '60s. Featuring cuts from Gemini 6, Yetti Blues Band, Mad Lads, Steve Ellis & The Starfires, Koats of Male and more, this collection with extensive sleeve notes is a fine effort. COMP CD $10 SKU:23445


DEE JAY & THE RUNAWAYS-PETER RABBIT (60s Iowa rock)-Label:ARF ARF The song, Peter Rabbit was the biggest hit to ever come out of Iowa selling in excess of 400,000 copies! This CD compiles all of the material recorded by Dee Jay And The Runaways plus four tracks by their precursors The Chevelles. Includes a huge 32 page booklet chock full of photos, memorabilia plus the complete story on the band and it's members. CD $10 SKU:27022

FARRELL, PAT & THE BELIEVERS - 1966-1968: THE BARCLAY STORY VOL. 4-Label:ARF ARF Best known to '60s rock afficionados for the bombastic garage pounder, "Bad Woman," Pat Farrell & The Believers produced a body of infectous commercial material. Included in this 17-track retrospective are both sides of their two singles for Diamond Records plus plenty of unreleased pop nuggets, early demo recordings and four songs by their early incarnation, the Triumphs. Also of note is that the band penned all songs featured on this disc.

Along with the Farfisa-fueled "Brand New Baby" and the fratty "Hey," this overview showcases their lush, Vietnam protest number "War Boy" (which charted on Billboard), the waltz-like "All My Love," the Tommy James-inspired "Oh My Angel," and numerous other slick pop creations. A special bonus stereo instrumental mix of "Bad Woman" proves how tight and imaginative this legendary Eastern PA quartet was.

Disc comes packaged with an archival 12-page booklet that documents their entire six-year history. (Note: five additional Triumphs tracks circa 1965 can be found on AA-069 Eastern PA Rock-Part One [1961-'66]). All music recorded by Clay Barclay, one of the region's key "behind-the-scenes" musical figures throughout the decade. CD $10 SKU:27023

LINDGREN, ERIK - OIL ON LINEN-Label:ARF ARF Three recent works from Boston's Birdsongs of the Mesozoic keyboardist. Chamber Suite is a 30 minute musical escapade composed of a dozen curious selections that explore a dream-like state of mind picking up where Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks left off. Levels of Insanity I/II are 20-minute soundtracks reminiscent of ambient music that unfold in bizarre and mysterious ways. CD $10 SKU:27024

LINDGREN, ERIK --SOUND ON SOUND ( 60s Anglophile style)Label:ARF ARF Back in his pianist-on-the-brink prep school/collegiate days of the early '70s, Erik Lindgren was composing sophisticated songs in his parent's Harrisburg, PA suburban basement. Assisted by his sound-on-sound tape deck, Lindgren meticulously layered and performed all the instruments and vocals for one simple reason: nobody else was around to learn this fairly complex music. Now thirty years later, Sound On Sound documents this impressive body of work by an over-achieving 18-year old kid. Despite musical and technological limitations, this glimpse into Lindgren's formative teenage years is similar in scope and vision to Pete Townshend's illuminating Scoop series. And the material' Always being a champion of the esoteric and obscure, there's a healthy influence of '60s Anglophile (Small Faces, Herd, Idle Race, Procol Harum, Nazz, etc) mixed in with his weekly counterpoint and harmony lessons in academia. These full-blown demos recall the '70s singer/songwriter era of Todd Rundgren, Emitt Rhodes, and Paul McCartney's Ram. This 22-track collection of songs and sketches is always honest, overly ambitious, and a breath of fresh air in today's world of overproduced, sterile, pre-fabricated music. The CD comes packaged with an extensive 12 page booklet crammed full of photos, notes by Lindgren, and a forward by his collaborator/Boston rock historian Eric Van. Lindgren has since amassed a boat load of eclectic musical credentials including CD retrospectives by his mid '70s mod psych power pop band TNT, Moving Parts (pre-Mission of Burma), his experimental studio monkier Space Negros, seven CDs by his progressive New Music ensemble Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic, and most notably steering Arf! Arf! into it's third decade of musical activity.

PAMELA LUCIA- INTO SPACE WITH ..(weird 1969 for fans of Shaggs, Sun Ra and Legendary Stardust Cowboy) Label:ARF ARF Originally Released in 1969 on the Gulfstream label, this truly eccentric album can only be described as free-spirited bebop stuck in Interstellar Overdrive. Any fans of the Shaggs, Sun Ra, and the Legendary Stardust Cowboy will surely be attracted to this glorious joyously uncoordinated collection of paralyzing songs.

PANDORA -Space Amazon (1970s glam proto punk) -Label:ARF ARF Erik Lindgren's Arf! Arf! Records is known for gathering the most obscure unreleased vintage tapes for historical purposes. (They're also known to have a giggle now and again; a couple of the label's supposedly vintage unreleased tapes are at least suspected to be by modern-day groups recording in note perfect re-creations of period styles.) Though most of the label's vintage tapes are from '60s era New England bands, given Lindgren's proximity and tastes, the 1997 release Space Amazon is actually a bunch of circa 1974 recordings by Pandora, a Cleveland, OH, band. The tapes were produced by Joe Battaglia, drummer for Cleveland metallurgists Granicus, and only the first two, the thumping "Space Amazon" and "Daze of Madness," were ever released, and even then only on a flexi-disc given away by a local magazine. The glammy songs have a heavy, proto-punk edge, as if the group were heavily into the Stooges and the first New York Dolls album, and the theatrical vocals and self-consciously "decadent" lyrics suggest a strong Bowie/T. Rex fixation as well. Fun stuff, no matter when it was recorded. (MUSIC EMPORIUM)proto punk) CD $10 SKU:19193

FLATTERY VOL. 2:- A TRIBUTE TO RADIO BIRDMANLabel:NOMAD KILLER COVERS BY TODAY'S HOTTEST PUNK-ROCK BANDS: GLUECIFER, BELLRAYS, NOMADS, YESMEN, NITWITZ. For those of you who still haven't removed the scorch marks Volume One put in your CD player, forget it! It's finally here -- Jake Starr and Dave Champion's second helping of modern-day bands' takes on 15 Birdman classics. Dunno how the ex-Birdmen themselves feel about this project, but from a fan's perspective, anything that evokes the spirit and feeling of the Birdmen is welcome.
There's nothing here as unique as the Bon Führer or Boyettes tracks on the previous installment, but there's still plenty to appreciate here. Gluecifer turns in a credible "Monday Morning Gunk," hewing pretty close to the original -- as many of the bands tend to do; variation usually takes the form of turning up the intensity, losing some of the subtleties of light and shade that the originals had, but hey, call it the price of a fan's enthusiasm.
Among the more original approaches is the BellRays' "If I Wanted To," in which this L.A. band, whom I've heard compared to "the MC5 fronted by Janis Joplin," comes across more like Black Sabbath fronted by Aretha Franklin -- which is not a bad thing (and makes me all the more anxious to seek out their self-released full-length CD, which the Barman was unable to unearth on his recent Stateside jaunt, even in their hometown!).
Other highlights: Silver Tongued Devil's "TPBR Combo," the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs' quick 'n' dirty "Iskender Time," the Nomads' "Hanging On" (which these veteran Swedes -- my main men of the moment -- don't quite make their own the way they have other material they've covered), and the Yes-Men's "Anglo Girl Desire" (with guitar/saxophone interplay that captures the feel of the wild Tek-Masuak break on the "Ritualism" version). Spain's Kike Turmix showcases his, uh, idiosyncratic vocal approach to "Aloha Steve and Danno," while the Spoilers win the Land Speed Record Award for the fastest version of "Descent Into the Maelstrom" ever clocked in North America OR Australasia, and Amsterdam's Nitwitz (including Hydromatics stalwart Tony Slug) turn in a solid "Dark Surprise." Oh, and memo to the "Demons" -- it's cheating to bogart more disc time than anybody else by doing a medley!
Radio Birdman were like a gang that created their own universe and invited the world inside it...like the early Who and MC5. Rock'n'roll doesn't get any better. These volumes are just a hint of how widespread their influence remains, 20 years plus since they crashed and burned. Kudos to Jake 'n' Dave for making this happen. Me? I'm ready for another volume, starting off with, say Holy Curse's great version of "Cryin' Sun"...but in the meantime, this'll more than suffice.

MICHIGAN MAYHEM!- Vol 1 (top notch 60S compilation, featuring garage, psych and hard rock entries)Label:MORE FUN 28 forgotten 60’s Michigan garage gems. TRACKS: Sweet Cherry – Eight Day Blues, Blues Co. – Love Machine, Illusions – City Of People, James T. & The Workers – I Can’t Stop, Quests – Scream Loud, Outcry – Can’t You Hear, Psychotics – If You Don’t Believe Me Don’t, Chevrons – Hey Little Teaser, Grifs – Catch A Ride, Undecided – Make Her Cry, Aardvarks – I’m Higher Than I’m Down, Black Rose – Love Handles, Pagens – Mystic Cloud, Jammers – You’re Gonna Love Me Too, Ebb Tides – Séance, Terry Knight & The Pack – How Much More, Olivers – I Saw What You Did, Quests – I’m Tempted, 9th Street Market – I’m A Baby, Beaubiens – Times Passed, Rationals – Little Girls Cry, Sweet Cherry – Funny Things Floating, 9th Street Market – You’re Gone, Ruby – Confusion, The Old Exciting Scot Richard Case – Get The Picture, Rationals – I Need You (alternate take), Ascots – So Good, and Pleasure Seekers – What A Way To Die. DESCRIPTION: For fans of riff-driven, raw garage rock, Michigan Mayhem Vol. 1 is a good place to start. Most of the tracks on this are good and it's a fairly eclectic compilation—from the acid rock of Black Rose to the psych-pop of the Pagens to the to the R&B-influenced garage rock of the Rationals to the countrified homage to beer by the Pleasure Seekers. Not all of the tracks on Michigan Mayhem Vol. 1 work but the range of styles represented here makes this compilation an interesting and essential documentation of the time period. Seance by the Ebb Tide provides an example of the low-budget horror film music that a number garage revival bands focused on several years later. I'm not sure why this was the case—music like this too often just plods along. The last track in this collection What a Way to Die by the Pleasure Seekers is notable because they were an all-female band with a young Suzi Quatro on bass. The song asks her boyfriend not to make her choose between him or beer, which she loves above all, apparently. The title comes from the acknowledgement that beer does not lead to a healthy lifestyle, "I may not make it to 21 but what a way to die" (Hey, remember when alcoholism was funny?) The flip side of this single is much better but not included here. Both sides of the Pleasure Seekers' single are available (with much better sound quality) on the compilation Friday at the Hideout, but that's not to say that Friday at the Hideout is a better compilation than this one. The driving, infectious garage rock on Michigan Mayhem Vol. 1 more than compensates for its occasional inconsistency and less-than-perfect audio quality. As indicated in the title, all of the bands on this compilation came from Michigan, which had thriving scenes of all sorts of music, particularly in Detroit. Perhaps what makes Michigan such a good source of garage rock of the sort on this compilation is that it incorporates eclectic influences while still retaining the inspired amateurism of garage rock. Highly recommended! COMP CD $10 SKU:27046

The influence of the Beatles, the British Invasion, and the Byrds permeates much of the material, with some side nods to the Beau Brummels and the Zombies, COMP CD $10 SKU:20058

LEGAL WEAPON- DEATH OF INNOCENCE (1982 Pioneering LA punk band)Label:RADIATION Pioneering LA punk band Legal Weapon was formed in 1980 from the ashes of The Silencers, which Steve Reiner formed with guitarist Brian Hansen and vocalist Kat Arthur. By the time of this riveting 1982 debut LP, the band had Arthur, Hansen, future Adolescents/Agent Orange bassist Steve Soto, and drummer Charlie Vartanian. Just as Exene Cervenka was a primary draw in X and Penelope Houston in The Avengers, Kat Arthur is the major lure that kept this band outstanding, as Hansen and Soto vary the musical action, keeping their hardcore on the melodic side throughout. Essential listening for west coast punk fans!

LIMONADA -ST (legendary 1970 Peruvian obscurity)Label:LION Although they sprung ready-made from of the ashes of legendary candombe/beat group El Kinto, one of the best-kept secrets from Uruguay’s musical mythology is nevertheless the group of musicians who recorded one album as Limonada. So what happened? The story starts with the end of El Kinto, when band leader and iconoclastic maniac Eduardo Mateo decided to embark on a solo career (see our forthcoming Lion Productions collection of his early music for more details), and the other members of El Kinto said “let’s do something together”. And so it was that in the middle of 1970, Limonada recorded their one and only album, “LimoNada” (Sondor 33.111). It is a strange record, with backwards tape splices, abrupt song changes, yet at the same time it is absolutely accessible and very groovy, in a Tropicalia sort of way, which might explain why it was an immediate success. In truth, it’s a profound mystery why the Limonada LP—one of the ten best sellers of its time within three weeks of its release—seems to have vanished from the consciousness of even the most devoted fans of obscure music. Until now, of course. This carefully researched reissue contains the entire Limonada LP (its reissue debut), supplemented by an extended live bonus track. The sixteen page booklet includes historical background on the Uruguayan scene, details of the band’s past, plenty of photos, as well as a brief overview of the legendary Sondor label. LP $14 SKU:26830

NIHILIST SPASM BAND -No Record (1968 counterculture weirdness) -Label:LION One of very few indie label releases on Spin Magazine's list of 100 top counter-cultural music, ahead of legends like Mulatu Astatke, Brigitte Fontaine, Pärson Sound, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra and His Solar Arkestra, Harry Partch, and Os Mutantes. Zowie!"In 1965, eight guys from London, Ontario, decided to start a free-improv group — 'free' to the point of building their own instruments, which they decided couldn't be set up to produce specific pitches... Their vocalist, schoolteacher Bill Exley, banged on a cooking pot and bellowed hilariously about stupidity and destruction and Canada. They didn't treat what they were doing as an advanced, visionary form of experimental music, but as a big, stupid, fun, ecstatic noise. By the '90s, noise artists finally recognized NSB as their ancestors — and, almost 50 years after they started, the surviving members of the Nihilist Spasm Band still play every Monday night while their children haunt loft spaces the world over." —Spin"The record you’re holding is one of the masterworks of that big gray area of noise/weirdo/freak-out music. It’ still hard to believe that No Record was released in 1968. This was a time when popular music was still growing up, and these outsider guys from Canada came out of nowhere and made this mindfuck of record that was years ahead of itself. And as with albums like Trout Mask Replica, and The Faust Tapes, it still sounds fresh today. No Record is mandatory listening. —Lasse Marhaug•One of very few indie label releases on Spin Magazine's list of 100 top counter-cultural music•Comes with massive booklet with the band’s story and rare photo and more!•From the master tapes. •Limited edition of 500 copies. LP $18 SKU:26831

NOX BOYS - OUT OF TOUCH ( 60s style garage ) Label:GET HIP The Nox Boys recorded their first album as teenagers in high school with Producer Jim Diamond in one weekend. This time around they went full throttle to create a true GARAGE PUNK album: “Out Of Touch”. With special guest appearances and production by Gregg Kostelich (The Cynics / Get Hip Records) on bass, and engineered by Pete Drivere (Blue Ash/Deadbeat Poets/Infidels), the album features a broad mix of psychedelia, pop, and punk elements…. “Out Of Touch” opens with title track written as an outlet for the frustrations of growing up in today’s political climate and circumscribing a pathway of your own. LP $12 SKU:21270

OUTCASTS (N. IRELAND) -SELF CONSCIOUS OVER YOU (Legendary 1977 Belfast punks)Label:RADIATION Legendary Belfast punk band The Outcasts formed in 1977, playing a mix of originals and covers. After signing with local punk label Good Vibrations for the 'Just Another Teenage Rebel' single, their popularity was boosted by airplay via John Peel, paving the way for their debut LP, 'Self Conscious Over You.' Full of teenage angst and romantic fixations, there's a nod to social issues on 'The Cops Are Comin',' but the album mostly deals with the agonies and ecstasies of teenage life. Capturing the band at their rawest and most unfiltered, there are jagged edges galore and hints of greater glories-worth revisiting for all fans of Belfast punk. Comes on red vinyl. LP $22 SKU:26132

PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE SYNDICATE- Space Alley-Label:LION Plastic Crimewave Syndicate has finally returned with a wide-ranging/raging new album — recorded two years ago in an expansive, benevolent alleyway in the midst of a dark, diseased, claustrophobic time of global chaos. The new PCWS album, entitled "Space Alley," boldly travels into the relatively unexplored malevolent terrain of free doom, space/noise punk, and darkly dubbed-out library/soundtrack grooves (call it 70's crooked-cop show/freak-funk, if you must). This is all capped off with a sidelong, (beat of the) earth-harvesting modal exploration of synthed-out kraut-throb. With new bassist Rob Rodak (Dead Feathers) aboard, and guests like sax-skronk legend Taralie Peterson (Spires That in the Sunset Rise), flautist Sara Gossett (Spiral Galaxy), and synthlord Will MacLean (Protovulcan), new influences have seeped into PCWS's dystopian vision. The Syndicate have opened for revered deities like Nik Turner, Loop, Simply Saucer, Chrome, and Josefus; but now a more diverse and groovy array of past underground sounds like Skin Alley, Sound of Imker, Here and Now, Mann/Sharrock, Black Sun Ensemble, Parson Sound, and Schizo have influenced PCWS's journey. Recorded by Eric Block (Rhys Chatham, Sick Gazelle) of Rec Rooms studios, and mastered by Monster Magnet/Desert Sessions guitar god JP McBain, the mind-fry level is set to 11 on Space Alley! LP $18 SKU:26361

PUSSY--INVASION (70’s Hard Rock post-Jerusalem material from 1972/73)Label:ROCKADROME /LION •Includes insert with photos, lyrics and liner notes by Pussy/Jerusalem bassist and primary songwriter, Paul Dean Pussy, managed and produced by Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), was formed from the ashes of Jerusalem, well known among 70s hard rock enthusiasts thanks to their stone-cold classic 1972 Deram label debut album, and our recent vinyl reissues. This 1973 album, with Pau Dean and Ray Sparrow of Jerusalem along with Brian Goff on guitar, was long-rumored to be an unreleased second Jerusalem album. That it is not — this is a different crunchy guitar beast. Although Pussy kept the raw, no rules edge from Jerusalem which sets both bands apart from many others of the era, there seems to be a touch of Ziggy Stardust crunchy space glam in the mix. Ian Gillan was far more proactive this time around: he played piano and percussion, and was responsible for many backing vocals on the songs.
•Vinyl return of early 70s UK hard rock recordings produced by Ian Gillan of Deep Purple•Features former members of legendary UK underground hard rock group Jerusalem, whose 1972 debut album reissue, also produced by Ian Gillan, has been a Lion/Rockadrome best seller!•Limited second edition of only 500 copies LP $19 SKU:26360

SILOAH -ST (STONER TRIPPY psych-Kraut 1970 ) booklet and 7” Label:WAH WAH This is drug influenced psych-Kraut of the highest level. Private press debut from 1970 from mostly acoustic trippy hippie ethnic LSD-dropping folks from a Munich commune; some Hapshash & the Coloured Coat, Amon Duul I, and Incredible String Band action, which puts them in excellent company, although the music of Siloah is more coherent; tracks like ‘Yellow Puppets Hanging in the Sky’, and ‘Krishna’s Golden Dope Shop’ (featuring Ali on guitar) certainly stake their claim to your attention if you like ethno folk psychedelic head trips. Includes a generous 16-page LP-sized booklet. LP $22 SKU:19427

SOHO ORANGE - KINGS OF THE ROAD (70s searing hard rock Zep style proto metal) Label:SEELIE COURT Searing hard rock that combines the savagery of early Budgie with the mystical edge of Led Zeppelin, this Scottish band is an important addition to the roster of early proto metal bands. Taken from original 1971 master tapes, this LP ranks with the best of early seventies UK hard rock. Six long tracks that decimate many established proto metal albums, this restores track title and session order that were mangled on a well intentioned German bootleg decades ago. LP $22 SKU:26285
