UGLY THINGS- 54 In this special issue we pay tribute to Phil May of the Pretty Things. Included our interviews with those who knew him best, including his close friend and lifelong collaborator, Dick Taylor, as well as an array of rare and previously unseen Pretty Things photos. Also this issue, the story behind the Electras’ gnarly sixties punk masterpiece “Dirty Old Man,” the tale of Midwest psychedelic masters the Paisleys (Cosmic Mind at Play), Southern California garage-psych combo the Search, guitarist Craig Tarwater (Hawk & the Randelas, Sons of Adam, Daily Flash, Arthur Lee & Love), and a night of music and mirth with Hasil Adkins. We also explore the world of gypsy jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo and its intersections with pop and psychedelia in the 1960s, and tell the strange story of the San Jose garage pop group People, who recorded a hit version of the Zombies “I Love You,” only to become enmeshed in the sinister world of Scientology. All this and a lot more, including as always our expansive review sections covering all the latest reissues and rock & roll-related books. BOOKS & MAGS $11 SKU:23516

This second album features 12 glorious psychedelic pop/rock tunes that stick to the mind like bees on honey.

O’JAYS- In Philadelphia(70s R&B soul)Label:BIG BREAK The O'Jays spent time on various labels and released successful singles working with H.B. Barnum and also Gamble & Huff, who were working as a production team for Neptune Records. 'The O'Jays in Philadelphia' (1970) was the group’s only studio album to be released on Neptune Records. This album heralded a long run of success and one of the most fruitful partnerships in the history of soul music with The O’Jays becoming the biggest act on Gamble and Huff’s legendary Philadelphia International Records imprint throughout the 70’s. It starts with the amazing ‘One Night Affair,' released as a single in the summer of 1969. The track has an up-tempo propulsive groove backed up with lush strings and horns to compliment the gritty gospel influenced vocal from Eddie Levert as he pleads for a night of passion with no strings attached. The second single was ‘Branded Bad,' a quintessential Gamble/Huff production with some great instrumentation including a crunching organ motif towards the end. ‘Deeper (In Love With You),' the third single, is a swinging soul track in the 60’s style with a demanding ‘walking’ bass line. Single number four, ‘Looky Looky (Look At Me Girl)’ is an energetic track with the group pleading for attention from the fairer sex. Other standout tracks are the stunning ballad ‘Let Me In To Your World’ and the mid-tempo groovers ‘You’re The Best Thing Since Candy’ and ‘I Should Be Your Lover’. BBR is very proud to present 'The O'Jays in Philadelphia' expertly re-mastered and complete with extensive liner notes and the album’s original art work on CD for the first time. Absolutely essential listening for all R&B and Soul fans, especially those who champion the Philly Sound! CD $6 SKU:19083
OCTOPUS SYNG -VICTORIAN WONDERS(mystical brew of modern psychedelic sounds)Label:MEGA DODO A rich, dark and sometimes mystical brew of modern psychedelic sounds, 'Victorian Wonders' is a sensitive and melancholic record that, like its predecessors, draws on the spirits of Syd Barrett and early Floyd for inspiration. It is, in parts, dissonant and eerie, and in others whimsical and diaphanous. It's a luscious experience, a trippin' musical creature, where each note is a short journey to unimaginable places in our minds CD $19 SKU:22541

THEE MICHELLE GUN ELEPHANT- Rodeo Tandem Beat Specter- PROMO Label:ALIVE The band’s last studio album. “I don't know where the Japanese equivalent of the Motor City is, but Thee Michelle Gun Elephant must be from near there. The quartet's third U.S. album, Rodeo Tandem Beat Specter is a triumph of high-octane, melodic proto-punk in the tradition of the Stooges and the MC5. It's easy to tell on songs like "The Loneliness Of The Citroen" and "My Heart With Its Brakes Broken Loose" that subjects of love and cars are dominant images. The rhythm section of bassist Koji Ueno and drummer Kazuyuki Kuhara provides the horsepower. The flash comes from the soaring bluesy-punk rock lines of guitarist Futoshi Abe. Topped off with singer Yusuke Chiba's gruff, emotional bleats, this is some good ol' foot-stomping, head-shaking stuff.” - Brian J. Bowe / Creem Magazine CD $10 SKU:21700
THEE PSYCHO DELMATICS - Tough Guys Can DAnce (PRIMAL GARAGE)Label:OFF THE HIP Primitive, primal rock n roll, and project an image that is heavily in vein to the 50s....you can say it has a 50s-meets-garage sound. CD $5 SKU:18912
VERA SIENRA-Nuestra soledad” (1969) + “Vera(1972) Label:LION Two complete albums of wistful, world-weary (mostly) acoustic songs of quiet, pulsating sadness from Uruguay, aided on the first (c. 1969) by iconoclastic genius Eduardo Mateo, who added his guitar playing and arranging skills to the album. What’s it sound like? Think of a sad Vashti Bunyan song sung by a more mature MARIANNE FAITHFUL and you’ll get there.
These albums are known for their authenticity and "a striking sensuality that brings something of the sea to the voice of a little girl, sometimes tired as if extracted out of a very dark interior.” 28-page booklet contains background on the remarkable poetess/artist that is Vera, plus lyrics in English and in the original Spanish, historical background on the Uruguayan scene, photos, and a brief overview of the legendary Sondor label. CD $10 SKU:20353

DOWN IN THE VALLEY- Vol 4 -A heavy dose of Garage Rock & Psych-Funk tracks SAALE! Label:PERFECT TOY A heavy dose of Garage Rock & Psych-Funk tracks. The Perfect Toy label continues its righteous quest to unearth the finest rare sounds from way out with Volumes 3 and 4 of its Down In The Valley series and in doing so delivers what is most certainly “A heavy dose of garage rock & psych-funk.” Vol. 3 opens with a characteristically inspiring cut - Sand's cover of Down By The River - one of the best (and certainly one of the most obscure) versions of the Neil Young classic. This is followed by two fine examples of garage rock with a funky twist - Pegasus' Honeysuckle Willow Pride and Enalpria's Sliding, in the slipstream of which follows Heart and Soul's raw psych cut Afterthought. Also featured on this volume are two tributes to Jimi Hendrix that the big man himself would be proud to hear - The Fabulous Troubadores' version of Hey Joe (here literally entitled Tribute To Jimi Hendrix) as well as a psych-soul cover of Stone Free by the The Good Earth. Side B kicks off with Lifeless, the farewell 45 from La Crosse, Wisconsin outfit Today's Tomorrow and also includes two cuts occupying the nexus of garage and psych-funk from Milk & Cookies and Sound Inc., along with the Del Counts's fierce organ-led funk instrumental Who Cares and a very special contribution from GIN whose Louisville Luck is one of two previously unreleased tracks.
Deepest respect goes out once again to crate-digging supremo, Chan The Man, the curator of these two brand-new volumes in the Down In The Valley series. His ambition to search for the impossible and get his hands on private pressings that no one except the freakiest vinyl nerds knew existed has set the path to the release of these two discs. Accompanied by detailed liner notes and never-before-seen photos of the artists, Down In The Valley 3&4 continue the same attention to quality and detail set by their predecessors. COMP LP $19 SKU:22125
JOHN THE CONQUEROR - ST LTD EDITION of 100 on MELLOW YELLOW VINYL LAST COPIES! - Label:ALIVE John The Conqueror’s self-titled debut album is an amalgamation of the many sounds and styles (old and new) mined from both the North and the South. Cousins Pierre Moore (vocals & guitar) and Michael Gardner (drums) are natives of Jackson, MS, while bassist Ryan Lynn hails from Philly – where the trio now call home. Together they mix a bedrock of raw deep blues with funk, soul, punk and scuzzed-up rock-n-roll into one helluva potent musical Molotov cocktail. Moore and Gardner have been playing together in bands since their college days in Oxford, MS, and Moore learned to play guitar in his early teens from a homeless man who slept in the back room of an auto repair shop. LP $20 SKU:14630
WITCHES- A Haunted Person's Guide To.(.ltd ed yellow). psych LAST 5 COPIES!Label:ALIVE YELLOW VINYL LTD. EDITION -"The best band that you never heard" of is a term that is commonly thrown around with much ado but in the case of The Witches it may well be true. Born in Detroit in 1996 from the mind of bass player Troy Gregory (Dirtbombs, Killing Joke) and with the help of fellow Michigan natives John Nash (Electric Six, LCD Soundsystem) on guitar, and producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Von Bondies) on electric twelve-string, The Witches went on to record five amazing albums between 1996 and 2006, with the help of a revolving line-up of Michigan musicians, before vanishing into thin air. "A Haunted Person's Guide To The Witches" compiles material from the band's five albums, and is a comprehensive introduction to the band's unique sound. LP $20 SKU:12503
