GERMS - Germicide- Live at the Whiskey 1977 180 gram -Label:BOMP Records Live at The Whiskey 77 We are seldom lucky enough to hear one of our favorite bands at the earliest state of development. In the case of the Germs, LA's most radical punk band, someone was fortunately on hand with a remote 8-track studio to record their very first gig. Part of Kim Fowley's 1977 "Punk Rock Weekend" at the Whiskey a Go Go, it's a rough, honest, eye-opening set, showing the Germs as they really were. Originally released in a limited vinyl edition in 1980, Germicide quickly went out of print, then was issued cassette-only by ROIR. Now on 180 gram vinyl for the first time in more than 15 years. LP $25 SKU:2051

NEW ARRIVALS

FRANKIE AND THE WITCH FINGERS-ST (heavy dose of witchy vibes, psychedelic shake and an incessant grind) Label:PERMANENT "Opening their album with more fuzz than an exploded dustbuster, Bloomington, Indiana's Frankie and the Witch Fingers are riding high on the hallmarks of the 2010's pantheon of garage rock heroes. Adding to the sonic soup a heavy dose of witchy vibes, psychedelic shake and an incessant grind that makes it feel vital and raw as skin peeled back, their sophomore album for Chicago's chief gutwrenchers, Permanent Records, is fueled by more than just paint by numbers rock. The band knows when to ride the tide of fuzz-addled freakout, knows when to break in the shake n' shimmy and knows just when to tear all the good times down for a good old fashioned dark horse that draws the shades and draws a little blood in the process. A solid offering from this band, reportedly uprooting from the doldrums of the Corn Belt to LA. It'll be interesting to see how the move affects their sound in the future, but for now these nuggets are more than worth the price of admission." - Raven Sings The Blues"Frankie and the Witch Fingers are a garage rock outfit [originally] from Bloomington, Indiana, and with one song, they've made their forthcoming self-titled album on Permanent a hot album to pine for in 2015. Aside from the "True Detective" vibes, I'm not sure what exactly is going on in the "sexy and dangerous witchcraft" video for "Vibrations" which is puzzling, creepy and yet, sustains fascination. Regardless, this song is at the top of the heap when it comes to garage pop tunes that could've thrived in the 1960s. You just don't hear organ work like that anymore." - Evan Minsker @ Shake Appeal - The Pitch | Pitchfork ("Vibrations" Video Premier) LP $20 SKU:21534

HOOVERIII -ST (Recorded under the influence of Hawkwind, Amon Düül II, Black Sabbath and NEU!)Label:PERMANENT Never before has a debut album so seamlessly mixed all the best subgenres of 60 years of rock into such a fantastic crystalline stalactite. If the sounds contained within these grooves could be distilled down to something edible, even the smallest dose would be lethal. Recorded under the influence of Hawkwind, Amon Düül II, Black Sabbath and NEU! LP $22 SKU:21533

SALT LICK - ST (70s rock and roll style) -Label:PERMANENT Salt Lick is the very new L.A. trio with heavy connections to Permanent Records, Mock Records, Jesus Sons and that particularly collector-y Bonehead Crunchers/Crushers/etc.-style blunt-object 70s rock ‘n’ roll...Enthusiastically working the same grinding vibes of that recently rediscovered wave of old-school weirdos who got lost somewhere between prog rock they couldn’t play and punk rock they didn’t get, and who’s we-just-wanna-rock! 45s ended up creating a whole micro-genre of longhair off-the-grid proto-proto-punk. (Salt Lick also claims as an influence “the one good song on a bunch of major label LPs from the early 70s,” which is also very accurate—and Permanent/RidingEasy’s own Brown Acid comps also make a nice sampler of this sound.)" - LA Record"Coming on like an MC5 fever dream... Salt Lick’s debut ..shakes the window panes until they beg for mercy. See-sawing on a monster riff, the track is muddied and murky but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t knock the wind out of you. Salt Lick rounds up members from the Permanent staff, but its more than just a bit of nepotism here – it seems that those curating the power of pummel can also deliver it just as well. This is scuzzy, crusted, exhaust huffing garage rock with no spit shine in sight." LP $22 SKU:21532

TELEGRAPH AVENUE - ST (Peruvian 70s psych rock)-Label:RE-PSYCHLED Telegraph Avenue’s debut album appeared on the market in Peru, and became the best selling rock record of the year. The time was right for Latin rock with psychedelic touches (a fact evident all over the Americas), and Telegraph Avenue delivered: guitars saturate the amplifiers, using natural distortion and feedbacks, with Latin bass lines, powerful drums and Latin flavored percussions filling all songs with the uniqueness of their sound. Their songs sometimes sound like Grand Funk’s early records, but others have vocal melodies more akin to a West Coast psych style. Now, 35-years later, Repsychled Records has the pleasure to present the definitive reissue of this album; this reissue is the first done using the original master tapes, and was remastered with tube amplifiers; it includes the original artwork in a gatefold mini-LP format, a booklet with unseen photos and souvenirs from the band’s concerts, an extra insert with band biography, and an unreleased song. Limited mini cardboard sleeve edition CD $12 SKU:20201

TELESCOPES- Taste w gatefold cd - legendary UK noise/space rock LAST COPIES Label:BOMP Reissue of the classic debut album by this legendary UK noise/space rock band. “Taste” was originally released in 1989 on What Goes On and reached #5 on the UK Indie Chart. CD $15 SKU:13206

TELLTALE HEARTS- High Tide (snotty mid-60s style garage punk with R&B and blues influence )LAST COPIES Label:VOXX Anthology '83-'86 - 21 cuts, including 9 previously unreleased, highlight this killer compilation from San Diego's version of the Shadows Of Knight. Back in the days of the mid-80s "garage revival" scene that revolved around the Cavern Club, there was no doubt that the Tell-Tale Hearts led the pack of "paisley underground" bands that were popping up everywhere. They combined primitive and snotty mid-60s garage punk with R&B and blues influences, and had in Ray Brandes a great vocalist. Bill Calhoun played the keys, Eric Bacher was the guitarist, Dave Klowden the powerhouse drummer, and Mike Stax (publisher of the great Ugly Things fanzine) the "bass that ate San Diego." These guys had it all: the "look," the sound, and the carefree attitude. CD $15 SKU:2143

TEMPONAUTS- A Million Year Picnic (Byrds style psych pop) - Label:MISTY LANE ”. A ltd edition/500 CDs A must if you love the electric jingle-jangle sound of the Byrds,melodic powerpop , neo-psychedelia and the paisley underground (Ok some of you might add echoes from the 90’s brit-pop as well...) CD $14 SKU:7072

TEN HIGH - Party Store (great Detroit garage MC5 style with appearance by ? and the Mysterians!) -Label:TOTAL ENERGY The first full length featuring WENDY CASE (The PAYBACKS) in the tradition of MC5, Stooges-Guest appearance 'by ? & Mysterians Bobby Balderama. Great Detroit garage in the Rationals / Pleasure Seekers tradition. CD $5 SKU:2239

TERRY & THE PIRATES- Too Close For Comfort (70s )-Label:ACADIA Twenty nine years after the release of the original Too Close For Comfort comes the third issue of this priceless and timeless music from San Francisco's own Terry & The Pirates.” Another view: “Probably only remembered today as one of the many bands graced by the guitarwork of John Cipollina following his departure from Quicksilver Messenger Service, and as a footnote in the career of Nicky Hopkins, Terry and the Pirates deserve much greater recognition. Although Cipollina’s feral guitar is undoubtedly essential to their charms, the work of Terry Dolan himself should not be underestimated. His voice is an acquired taste, a strange mixture of David Crosby and Captain Beefheart, but as such, it’s impressively distinctive. Meanwhile, his songwriting mines that same rich vein of American folk which yielded ‘Pride Of Man’ (so memorably covered by Quicksilver). The best songs on this collection of various live and studio recordings are certainly Dolan’s own. Whilst a version of Jackie Wilson’s ‘Higher & Higher’ might be entertainingly audacious, covers of ‘Mystery Train’ and ‘Don’t Do It’ aren’t going to make anybody forget those by The Band, despite some impressive sparring between Cipollina and second guitarist Greg Douglass on the latter. In this context, tracks like ‘Inside and Out’ and ‘Inlaws and Outlaws’ distinguish themselves as fine examples of original Californian rock n’ roll. Even if none of this is especially ground-breaking or epoch-defining music, it’s played with spirit and any fans of West Coast music who might have easily overlooked it should be sure to rectify their mistake. CD $10 SKU:16373

THOMAS FUNCTION - Celebration (amazing R&B, psych pop release on ALIVE you may have missed! SAALE -Label:ALIVE Mellifluously mixing genres like country, R&B, psychedelia and blues underneath a sheen of jangly pop, Thomas Function has crafted a stunning collection of epic, memorable pop that builds up to a stunning release." - Flagpole CD $5 SKU:7684

THRAKA - CDR (Cambodian Rocks artists sixteen tracks, blistering lead guitar) LAST COPIESLabel:KHMER ROCKS Several volumes—all CDR’s, as that is the way most music is sold amongst the Cambodian communities worldwide. These discs contain music from artists featured on the “Cambodian Rocks” series of compilations... although in this case, all the text is in Khmer, so good luck finding out what the tracks are called, or who is singing them. The music on these CDR’s demonstrates a much wider variety of styles than you hear on the “Cambodian Rocks” volumes, ranging far beyond the rock idiom into the land of what one might call an Ethiopiques sound, with Latin music, orchestra, and rough folkloric recordings all on display. A treat for the true cultural crate digger... you can’t get more down and dirty—or cheaper—than this. Very limited quantities. CD $8 SKU:20505

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. Musical influences range from the exquisite dual guitar approach of bands such as Wishbone Ash and Wild Turkey to the heavier, darker mood of early Judas Priest. 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 $10 SKU:20995

THUNDERS, JOHNNY- Endless Party LIVE -Label:TRIPLE X ENDLESS PARTY is a live set that captures a typically sloppy but occasionally inspired solo show by Thunders. As usual, the set starts with a thunderous version of the classic surf instrumental "Pipeline," careens through a collection of solo, Dolls, and Heartbreakers classics, and ends with Thunders' signature ode to heroin ("Chinese Rocks") and the rave-up "Pills." CD $3 SKU:16219

THUNDERS, Johnny--Diary of a Gypsy Lover 23 TRAX ALTERNATE STUDIO CUTS,LIVE,RADIO)?Label:SONIC Punk rock guitar hero, earning a cult following for his noisy but epic style a few years before the insouciant new music gained its name. Following in the footsteps of his idol and role model Keith Richards, Johnny Thunders (born John Anthony Genzale, Jr.) lived the ultimate rock & roll life, spending most of his days churning out tough, sloppy three-chord rock & roll and gaining nearly as strong a reputation for his decades-long struggle with addiction as for his music. Thunders made his greatest impact as a member of the New York Dolls, the proto-punk glam rockers of the early '70s. During the late '70s, he was a familiar figure on the New York punk scene, both with his band the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist. Thunders performed and recorded steadily until his death in 1991, turning out a series of records that inadvertently documented the struggles of his life and his art. CD $10 SKU:20428

THUNDERS, Johnny-Internal Posession AT Last (Live Recordings)Label:SONIC IN COLD BLOOD LIVE SHOW+STUDIO ACOUSTIC CD $10 SKU:20429

TIGER BOMB -Uproar (Pandoras style all female garage rock)- Label:DIONYSUS Sounding like it could have been released back in 1967, this is an album of glorious all-female garage-rock sounds, delivered by a cool combo from Portland! Fronted by The Brood's Chris Horne, Tiger Bomb's energetic garage'n'roll is suitable for, and highly recommended to, fans of a.o. The Pleasure Seekers, She, The Luv'd Ones, The Pandoras and The Brood. CD $12 SKU:21040

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

TOLMAN, RUSS -Down in Earthquake Town (Former True West-LA Paisley Underground)Label:SKYCLAD After fleeing the confines of the Northern California guitar band, True West upon its demise in 1985, Russ Tolman took up the troubadour's life, embarking on a career as a singer-songwriter, often performing with a band. Loosely aligned with LA's Paisley Underground scene, Tolman continued to surround himself with some of the musicians who were key during that period, in particular Steve Wynn, formerly of the Dream Syndicate who has remained his friend and occasional collaborator. CD $10 SKU:20430

TOMBSTONE VALENTINE - Hidden World (60's/90's West Coast sound) -Label:AETHER Quintet with a 60's/90's West Coast sound. Hidden World was mostly recorded at home on a Tascam 238 8-track and features 4 compositions: the title track and the magnificent "Green Sky Night" are 2 pearls of modern West Coast psych rock with Grace Slick-like female lead vocals, wah wah guitar, Country Joe & The Fish type organ patterns and strange synth noises, while the other 2 numbers are purely instrumental and vaguely sound like one of the space jams of the Grateful Dead with Cork Marcheschi of 50 Foot Hose guesting on weird electronic noises. Especially the side-filling "Elastic Reality" is an impressive, long example of avant-garde psychedelics for the next millenium. Outstanding lp, long time since I heard a release that balances so neatly between tradition and experiment, and creates something new under the sun. (Crohingawell, Belgium)
CD $8 SKU:20351

TOMCATS-Running at Shadows: The Spanish Recordings 1965-66 ( Spanish answer to the Rolling Stones) Label:RPM This compilation boasts all The Tomcats’ EP tracks plus rarities, unissued material and pre-Tomcats tracks by The Second Thoughts. British R&B/Mod band The Tomcats were formed in Ealing in 1965 but spent their career wowing audiences in Spain as an imported answer to The Rolling Stones. Between 1965 and 1966, the Tomcats issued four EPs for Philips, which have never been reissued on CD. This compilation boasts all their EP tracks plus rarities, unissued material and pre-Tomcats tracks by The Second Thoughts.

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

TOMRERCLAUS -EN SPADE ER EN SPADE:(1978 Classic Danish guitar psych)-Label:KARMA MUSIC So 25 years later comes the follow up to this classic 1978 TOMRERCLAUS album. A must for guitar lovers.

R&B SPOTLIGHT #60-R&B and/or pop hits of 1959- DOUBLE CD Label:Fantastic Voyage 60 tracks by various artists selected from the US charts of 1959. All of the songs were R&B and/or pop hits and many have become classics of the genre. The artists include such legends as Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, the Coasters, Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker, Nat King Cole and Sarah Vaughan. The collection, including full details of the original label issues, is the second of an ongoing year-by-year series representing the Rhythm & Blues charts. The informative booklet notes are authored by respected Echoes/Record Collector journalist Mike Atherton. This 1959 installment in the year-by-year R&B Spotlight series sees the increasing popularity of Rhythm & Blues, with many of the entries also crossing over to the pop charts. The R&B chart mixed successes from both one-hit wonders and fifties stars. R&B with the Rock and Roll beat was represented by Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Lloyd Price and Little Willie John. Harmony vocal group sounds abounded with notable sides from the Flamingos, the Skyliners, the Crests, the Five Satins and Richard Barrett with the Chantels. Uptempo group items, often with a comedy slant, were very popular and the Coasters, the Clovers, the Cadillacs, the Accents and the Genies are amongst the excellent selections here. The whole Twist craze had it s beginnings in this year with the release of the original version written and recorded by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters. Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker and Clyde McPhatter pointed the way for the future direction of R&B with their polished, New York-produced recordings. Bluesier items still appeared in the charts with winners from Jimmy Reed, Little Walter and Lightnin Slim. Instrumental charters included catchy items from Dave Baby Cortez, the Spacemen and Paul Gayten. Tremendous tracks including classic songs like ‘Kansas City,’ ‘Sea Cruise,’ ‘Charlie Brown,’ ‘The Twist,’ ‘Since I Don’t Have You’ and ‘Love Potion No. 9’, all included here.

ROCK EN AREQUIPA- ST (Rare singles from 60s Peru )Label:RE-PSYCHLED Twenty-one tracks (72 minutes), the best of the rare singles recorded by bands like Free Love System, Los Texao, Los Incógnitos, Madera Fresca, and Opus who thrived in Arequipa, Peru during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Arequipa? yes, Arequipa, the second most populous city in Peru, up in the Andes mountains at an altitude of 2,380 meters (7,800 feet) above sea level; Arequipa, nicknamed La Ciudad Blanca (The White City), nestled beneath the snow-capped volcano El Misti. Arequipa. Get your Peruvian beat fix with groovy tracks from Los Incógnitos and Los Texao. Want some face-melting psychedelia instead? check out Los Texao’s ‘Stone’ or their fuzz-guitar laced instrumental ‘Swarlb’—both a musical style called "Niebla" (Fog), because of the effect produced by the band’s rotor amps and reverb and echo effects. (Los Texao were the first group in the province to record using FuzzTone effects, using powerful Dynacord amps imported from Germany). Prefer a more laid-back style? then you’ll love Free Love System. Looking for some heavy grooves? ‘La pelea del gobernador’ (Los Texao) or ‘Un paseo por el recuerdo’ (Free Love System) might do it for you. Sixteen-page booklet has mini-biographies of all five bands in Spanish and English; all tracks are from the master tapes, with the exception of Madera Fresca’s freak out ‘Any Time’—a classic at parties—and their acoustic version of ‘La lenta que apura,’ both rescued from the obscurity of a rare cassette. The first regional rock compilation from Peru's rich and mostly undiscovered musical history, but certainly not the last! COMP CD $12 SKU:20202

that was almost lost. These tracks date back to the period
1965-1975, the so-called "Golden Music" period in the south of

culture had developed. This period is characterized by the
fusion of Vietnamese music with western pop culture. Included

THOR'S HAMMER - ST ( Icelandic garage legends! 65-67) Label:GARDEN OF DELIGHTS Danish band’s Metronome album (1971), the one and only record by one of those groups that promised much, but never went further than an eponymous debut; their music was close to Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Blast Furnace and the jazzy style of bands like Traffic, with long tracks with killer wah-wah guitars, swirling organs, wild vocals and twisted psychedelic sax-breaks; ‘Mexico’ is perhaps the most effective track on the album (paraphrasing the well-known sax riff from Traffic's "Freedom Rider"), although the whole record is strong. Their one and only LP holds the sad record of being the most bootlegged LP in Denmark. This first legal LP reissue is accompanied by a 4-page insert in LP format, containing a detailed band history in German, English and Danish language, a comprehensive discography including side and solo projects, cover and label reproductions, and band photographs. A deluxe edition, hand-numbered and limited to 1,000 copies, pressed on 180g vinyl. LP $24 SKU:18026

WHITE NOISE SOUND- St- w Pete Kember of Spacemen 3 -RED VINYL LAST COPIESLabel:ALIVE WHITE NOISE SOUND is the eponymous debut from the Swansea/Cardiff, Wales-based sextet. Completed with the help of Pete Kember (Spacemen 3, Spectrum and E.A.R) and magician Cian Ciaran (Super Furry Animals), the album is is a psychedelic dream-piece, and the realization of a band conjuring their own particular wall-of-sound -- at once relentlessly pulsating and blissed-out. "In this day and age of ironic and increasingly obtuse band names, a band like White Noise Sound is refreshing. Like the heyday of generic foodstuffs, what you see on the label is exactly what you get here (...) WNS has been influenced by earsplitting bands from both sides of the Atlantic, including Velvet Underground, Suicide, Jesus And Mary Chain and of course the aforementioned Spacemen 3." – MOKB "Blending corrosive feedback, pulsating krautrock rhythms, floating vocals and wall-of-sound guitars, the track (Sunset) builds and builds into a perfectly judged ear-shattering, blissed out climax." - The Mad Mackerel "If you're gonna (essentially) cover Spacemen 3's 'Revolution' in 2010, good god this is the way to do it." – Arthur LP $15 SKU:14332

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."A top-notch introduction to an underrated band." – Steve Wilson / Reverberations"It’s a pleasant surprise that A Haunted Person’s Guide coheres like a proper album rather than a compilation." - Mark Deming / All Music Guide"This is devilishly good music that should be filed on your shelf alongside the Soft Boys." – Alan Brown / Popmatters"A Haunted Person’s Guide to the Witches makes a much stronger case for the Witches’ virtues than a journey through their catalog." – Michael Toland / The Big Takeover LP $20 SKU:12503

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 $24 SKU:20741

TONGUE - Keep on Truckin- forgotten classic of late '60s American psych)Label:LION Tongue were a blues-based, organ-fueled, country and rural folk-influenced hard rock band that emerged from the copious student population of countercultural Wisconsin. Though Tongue remains a criminally underrated outfit, and never made it big on a national level, their touring reached legendary status, particularly in the mid-west. They were on the road for 10 years and played 250 gigs a year without flying to a single one of them. LP $15 SKU:19452

TREE PEOPLE- Human Voices (late '70s Oregon hippie folk band)Label:GUERSSEN RECORDS (SPAIN) his is the second album from Oregon's The Tree People, the late '70s Oregon-based predecessors to the ongoing new folk movement in the USA. You already know about their 1979 debut album and you know it's a masterpiece, but did you know about their second album recorded in 1984? Surely not, especially because it was a cassette-only release with a very short print-run. The sound quality on this reissue is splendid, and the music itself is equally as good, if not better than, their self-titled debut and is a real must for any folk and psych-folk lover. Acoustic guitars, subtle percussion, pastoral flute work and some warm vocals make The Tree People's music absolutely ahead of its time. A real beauty! Includes an insert with liner notes by the band's leader Stephen Cohen, as well as some nice pictures LP $15 SKU:10638

TYBURN TALL - ST (1969 German prog)- Label:GARDEN OF DELIGHTS Tyburn Tall was founded in 1969 in Speyer, Germany and played progressive rock with classical influences; the instrumentation was organ, piano, guitar, bass, drums and vocals (keyboards, lots of keyboards).

This self-titled LP was released on the small label Lutz & Kern in an edition of 200 copies. Unfortunately more than half of the records were destroyed in a fire. Thanks to this calamity, and also the brilliance of the band’s music, this LP is one of the most sought-after German Prog/Rock LPs. One of the highlights of the is disc is the cover version of Colosseum’s ‘Lost Angeles LP $22 SKU:21088
