LAZY LESTER- I’M A LOVER NOT A FIGHTER-- 1994 GERMAN RELEASE- Label:ACE NOTE: NOT SEALED MINT DISC. Archive copy previously owned by either the owner of ALIVE or BOMP .Unlike many of the minor figures in post-war blues who passed on before they gained any recognition, Lazy Lester's music is enjoying something of a renaissance. Since 1987, he has toured the USA and Europe and, as Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds says of him, he continues to be "a great human being, and he plays his ass off!" Born Leslie Johnson in Torras, Louisiana, on June 20th, 1933, Lazy Lester learned to play both harmonica and guitar and, by the age of 19, built up a local reputation on both instruments. He played with Guitar Gable and later began a long recording relationship (on harmonica) with Lightnin' Slim. Three months after his first session with Lightnin', Lester made his own first recordings - I'm Gonna Leave You Baby and Lester's Stomp - for Jay Miller in Crowley, Louisiana. Lester was to become Miller's right hand man in the studio and cut some of his best material there, including the influential I'm A Lover Not A Fighter (a staple cover for '60s white R&B bands). Lester's own favourite songs - Take Me In Your Arms, Sugar Coated Love, The Same Thing Could Happen To You and Lester's Stomp - are all on this great CD collection, a tribute to the Louisiana blues sound of the 1960s, when downhome music wasn't just 'in the alley', it was well and truly 'in the swamp'.

MINK DE VILLE-RETURN TO MAGENTA - MINI LP COVER RELEASE- Label:CAPITOL NOTE: NOT SEALED MINT DISC. Archive copy previously owned by either the owner of ALIVE or BOMP Return to Magenta, issued in 1978, is the second album by the rock band Mink DeVille. The album was the last to feature all the original members of the band. For this album the band was joined by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Steve Douglas on sax and Dr. John on piano, who would later collaborate with leadsinger Willy DeVille after his move to New Orleans.
Return to Magenta continued in the vein of the first album, with a mixture of rock, soul, blues, and Latin rhythms. It was produced by Jack Nitzsche, who also co-wrote a song with DeVille ("Just Your Friends"). Willy DeVille said about Cabretta, Mink DeVille's album prior to Return to Magenta, "We went against strings on the first album — decided it should be outright, raw, and rude." On Return to Magenta, however, Willy DeVille and producers Jack Nitzsche and Steve Douglas employed lavish string arrangements on several songs.
Willy DeVille sings a quasi-duet with singer-songwriter David Forman on the Forman-composed “’A’ Train Lady.” "Steady Drivin' Man" became a favorite of Willy DeVille fans; DeVille performed the song on his Acoustic Trio Live in Berlin 25 years after the original recording. CD $10 SKU:25971

BLEU FOREST - ICHIBAN Live At Jimmies (1967 summer of love!) - Label:GEAR FAB The very first recordings by the BLEU FOREST happened after they played a show at the "Hey You Coffeehouse" in Ventura, CA.

His intention was to capture how the band sounded live, and this is what you get in Ichiban: Two mics, the band, a recording machine, no retakes, spontaneity and raw energy, a time-capsule direct From Jimmie's place in 1967. The sound and the style reminiscent of what was happening in San Francisco around 1966/1967 is captured in these recordings. ichiban mirrors the pinnacle days at Haight-Ashbury, echoes of the summer of love, "Turn on, tune in, drop out"!

FLUX -ST (1973 monsterpiece King Crimson style)Label:SEELIE COURT 380 copy limited edition first pressings in mini card gatefold sleeves, from Glass Masters (not cdrs) Searing art rock monsterpiece dominated by a relentlessly coruscating lead guitar sonic attack as if played by a demonically possessed John McLaughlin. Flux is ex-Babe Ruth, ex-Motiffe, with lead guitar by John Grimaldi before he joined Argent and worked on their prog masterpiece 'Circus'. This album is taken from a mono mastertape recorded on a BBC Mobile Unit at a live gig in 1973. A shocked Record Mirror journalist witnessed the concert and described it in a published Record Mirror review as 'a new form of music'. Sound quality is great and this is a band in top form playing exactly what they want, in a zone a bit like King Crimson's 'Red', but with insane guitar leads that bludgeon the listener to death. The vocalist later joined Italian prog rockers Flea On The Honey. Play this with a hangover and you will die in screaming agony. One very short track, and four very long ones. The gig ended with an IRA bomb scare. Yes really. CD $19 SKU:24804
HECTOR (UK) -DEMOLITION - THE WIRED UP WORLD OF HECTOR (unreleased junkshop glam gold dust)-Label:RADIATION Never-before-heard unreleased junkshop glam gold dust from the genre's No. 1 band. Portsmouth's Hector are widely regarded as the very best of the junkshop glam rock bands introduced to us in the early 2000s by the RPM's lipsmackin' '70s CD series. Recently discovered archive analogue tape recordings found in the attic of frontman Phil Brown form this unique album. The band's original DJM singles together with 'Demolition', an unreleased third single, join forces with outtakes, demos, live and rehearsal recordings to make this release an unmissable opportunity for glam rock fans worldwide to hear more from the band whose anthem 'Wired Up' has been adopted as a battle cry by a new audience of fans with books, fanzines, radio shows and club nights proudly named after it. Hector's 'Wired Up' was released in 1973. It had all the ingredients of a hit single. It should have topped the charts and launched a spectacular career for the band. In a fair world, the name Hector would be mentioned alongside bands like Sweet and Slade. Unfortunately, timing and luck weren't on their side. The product was there, the press coverage was there, the Radio 1 airplay (which was everything back then) wasn't and the kids that did hear it must have been deaf, dumb and blind. The plug was finally pulled in 1975 after their second single 'Bye Bye Bad Days', another poky punch of proto punk dressed up in a velvet glove, also failed to become a heavy-hitter. 'Demolition - The Wired Up World Of Hector' is not a phoenix from the ashes. It is Pompey* from Pompeii. Tunes from the ruins. Glamour in amber; perfectly preserved. A second chance to make a first impression. Hector are back! Are you watching and listening? CD $16 SKU:24784
JOSIAH-PROCESSION(Blue Cheer style heavy psych)Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Reissue of Josiah's fourth album from 2009. "Those who've experienced Josiah's groove-heavy swagger know that it's the guitar of Mat Bethancourt in the starring role, but this trio relies almost as much on the backing rhythms on 'Procession.' Blink and you'll miss the first two tracks, 'Procession' and 'Broken Doll," both of which are under two and a half minutes, but for the other three cuts of studio material ('Thirteen Scene,' highlight 'Dying Day' and the more garage rock 'Dead Forever'), it's just as much Beacom and Beasley's show as it is Bethancourt's. That would be the end if not for the five live tracks from Josiah's Swedish run in 2007. Four out of the five - 'Looking At The Mountain,' 'Time To Kill,' 'Silas Brainchild' and closer 'I Can't Seem To Find It' - come from the band's final recorded full-length, 'No Time,' and only 'Malpaso,' reaches back further, having first appeared on the 2001 10" 'Out Of The First Rays.' Not that we needed it by this time, but these live versions are basically just further confirmation of what underground rock lost with Josiah. The crash-heavy shuffle blues of 'Time To Kill' alone are worth whatever they're asking for 'Procession.'" ~The Obelisk CD $14 SKU:25311
JOSIAH -ST (Blue Cheer style heavy psych)Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Reissue of Josiah's debut album from 2002. "Josiah is one of the few bands out there currently that really manage to capture the authentic '70s acid-rock power-trio sound, style and energy while also sounding fresh and modern. Take some Grand Funk Railroad, Cactus and Groundhogs energy and update it with some Monster Magnet, Nebula and Fu Manchu styles and you'd get something along the lines of Josiah's self-titled debut full length. Next to Queens Of The Stone Age's 'Songs For The Deaf' this is my second favorite album of the year so far. If you're into the sound I've described above you really can't go wrong with this release. I strongly recommend it!! The overall feel is acid '70s psychedelic blues rock. Foghat and the James Gang crossed with Led Zep and Monster Magnet. Other bands that it reminds me of are Mammoth Volume, Five Horse Johnson... Hard aggressive grooves that maintain steadiness like no other. Yeah..." ~Stonerock.com CD $14 SKU:25310

BURGHERS ORQUESTRA-ST (Dutch guitar pop thrashers)Label:DEWITYOURSELF Dutch guitar pop thrashers Burghers put out a handful of EPs and singles in the last couple years. This time the duo, consisting of Niels de Wit (ex-Johan, Electric Tears a.o.) and Simone Mansveld (ex-Bugs) has suddenly morphed into Burghers Orquestra, opening new dimensions. Their cute poppy faster louder approach has deepened, inspiration coming from countless different places. Their love for 1960s pop, psych and garage is still a driving force, but on this debut LP, simply called 'Burghers Orquestra,' the simple guitar-bass-drums setup is less dominant. Instead we go careening in all kinds of directions, thanks to a songbook coloured by kaleidoscopic pop-rock, enticing vocal harmonies, slightly psychotic organ playing, galloping movie music, intimate brushes, heavy pounding, disorienting dub, surprising and tasteful horns, vibrating guitars, mind-expanding surf and much more. The album was recorded at home, making sure the music sounds as intimate and in-your-face as ever. Comes on black vinyl (Erwin Hofman/Written In Music). LP $28 SKU:25515
DEAD NITTELS- ANTI NEW WAVE LIGA (legendary "green tape" of one of the first Aussie punk bands 1982)Label:BACHELOR Yes, this is the legendary "green tape" of one of the first Austrian punk bands Dead Nittels. Triggered by their gig with the UK Subs on September 26, 1982 in Ampermoching/Dachau/Germany at the "Gasthaus zur Post", the Dead Nittels booked some studio time to lay down no less than 16 tracks in only three days, on a four track recorder - but the only used two of them - one track for the instruments and one for the vocals, they bought the cheapest tapes available - which happened to be ugly green, and dubbed 300 copies with the studio tracks plus seven live tracks from their UK Subs show. Good luck if you want to track down one of the tapes... For all others, here's the remastered greatness of this early Austrian punk album! LP $28 SKU:25731

JONESES -JONESIN'VOL 2:COMPLETE DISCOGRAPHY-80s glam punk rock & rollLabel:PROJECTILE PLATTERS During the early '80s, LA's The Joneses were the epitome of trashy rock'n'roll. These guys' mixture of influences from the New York Dolls, Ramones and Eddie Cochran was commonly referred to as "too glam for punk and too punk for rock". Their music was pure punk fueled rock'n'roll aggression, loaded with '50s style melodies, but brandishing a hard and aggressive '80s edge. The second volume in the Joneses reissue series compiles the tracks from the band's infamous 1983 'Hell Comes To Your House Part II' compilation, 1986's sleaze soaked rock'n'roll debut-LP 'Keeping Up With The Joneses' and other rare tracks.

KID GULLIVER -Kismet (power-pop band from Boston.)Label:PLATO UTRECHT Kid Gulliver is a power-pop band from Boston.

Their songs draw on influences from a vast catalog which includes everything from 1960s British Invasion and 1970s classic rock and punk to 1980s new wave and 1990s alternative and indie pop. Yes, a bit "old school," but always fresh sounding and original. No need for auto tune pitch correction here. Never needed it, never will. Singer/guitarist Simone Berk, whose previous band Sugar Snow garnered critical acclaim with her moody compositions, delivers vocals with a style that is instantly recognizable. David Armillotti, former member of Cookiecutter Girl and Hall Of Mirrors, brings a guitar style both aggressive and melodic. Their prelaunch single on Red on Red, 'Forget About Him,' reached number 1 on the Radio Indie Alliance Top 75, a global chart compilation from hundreds of indie terrestrial, college, streaming, and satellite radio shows, and they've been dominating the indie charts ever since. Previously only available on CD, Plato Utrecht Records is proud to offer this on the only format that matters. LP $26 SKU:25738

P REVEREND BEAT-MAN & THE UNDERGROUND-IT'S A MATTER OF TIMELabel:VOODOO RHYTHM Reverend Beat-Man & the Underground locked themselves up in a chalet in the Swiss mountains for a week and wrote this album.

RICHARD TWICE -ST (1968 US pop-rock)Label:COSMIC ROCK Fuzz guitars, organ, celestial vocal harmonies, a single effort and then... eternity (or obscurity if you look at the other side of the coin). In 1968 leader Richard Atkins -Richard Manning his artistic partner and co-writer, hence the name- was building toward success, his musical adventures and philosophy not that far from the likes of The Byrds or the more eccentric Simon & Garfunkel. He'd won a contract with Mercury Records, and recorded with the Wrecking Crew members, a group of Los Angeles session musicians famous for their work with the Beach Boys, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, and hundreds more. But stage fright triggered a disastrous make-or-break performance in a small Hollywood nightclub, and everything abruptly fell apart. Atkins gave up music in the prime, and for 50 years he refused even to listen to a radio, so painful were his memories of a career he was convinced could have been. Featuring top-notch backing from musicians such as Drake Levin (Paul Revere & the Raiders), Larry Knechtel (Bread), Mark Tulin (the Electric Prunes) and Rusty Young (Poco), the album -nonetheless- it's bound to appeal to all fans of high-quality early '70s US pop-rock. In 2017 the short history of this unlucky but brilliant combo was featured in a short animated movie of 10 minutes! LP $28 SKU:25730
