FAR OUT-(JAPAN)NIHONJIN(70s Holy grail) Label:EVERLAND Some albums are certainly a kind of holy grail for music lovers and collectors of a certain genre, style and era. Far Out with their eponymous debut and unfortunately also farewell album from 1973 have created such a sacred gem. Original copies in good condition change hands for up to $2000 and there are certainly a few not so official reprints on vinyl and CD out on the market which do not even come This is the real thing for those who still miss the melodies and atmosphere of the late '60s and very early '70s when people had a dream of a peaceful world and who enjoy early German cosmic kraut rock like Amon Düül II, Organisation (later to become Kraftwerk), the debut album by Tangerine Dream and more obscure stuff but also international bands like Pink Floyd, Gong, Twink and Hawkwind just as an East Asian version. A real gem and finally available with the real sound and package again. CD $17 SKU:22320

LINDAHL, PETER- PSYCHEDELIC SWEDEN (60s 70s style) Label:TRANSUBSTANS Peter Lindahls musical journey: "It was back in the early seventies, in those happy days of experimentation when everyone was jamming together at home or at open air festivals that things really took off for me, in the sense of my being creative. It was the age of hippies, of freaking out and of radical movements intending to change society over night. But with me it was just a lot of fun and fooling around with every way of expression I could find, among these the most vital ones being art and music." This is how Peter Lindahl describes his artistic upbringing during the feverish seventies. Many years later , in the nineties Peter has gained recognition with his project In the Labyrinth. The material presented on this CD holds almost no similarity to In the Labyrinth and is more of a compilation of Peters musical experimentation from themid-sixties to the late nineties, although most of the tracks were recorded during the early seventies. "Psychedelic Sweden" is a musical reflection of when Peter had joined up with the alternative community which was growing rapidly in Sweden in the late sixties and he started to take in more psychedelic stuff, his favourites at the time being Tyrannosaurus Rex, Pugh Rogefeldt and Pink Floyd. Full story by Tobias Pettersson in the extensive booklet with an fold out poster of Peter on backside. CD $12 SKU:22339

SMITH, CRAIG - (MAITREYA KALI) APACHE-INCA(1969 psych weirdness)Label:Maitreya Apache Music The first ever official release of Craig Smith's psychedelic folk masterpiece 'Apache-Inca'. In 1972, after changing his name to Maitreya Kali, Craig compiled and custom-pressed two LPs documenting his musical journey from 1967-72, including tracks with the Penny Arkade. Combined into a double album set, 'Apache-Inca' was given away or sold hand to hand on the street before Maitreya... and Craig... disappeared into the shadows. Only a handful of original copies are known to exist. The last time one was offered for sale, it went for over $10,000. Pirate copies routinely sell for over $400. Released by arrangement with the Smith family, comes in digipak with 32-page booklet. CD $22 SKU:22321
WHITE RABBIT DYNAMITE- PSI(heavy psych Hendrix Led Zep style)Label:WHITE DWARF Heavy psychedelic rock in the tradition of early '70s rock. Influences such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Jimi Hendrix can not be denied. But they also draw influences from stoner rock, as well as elements of krautrock and impress with long jam passages without drifting out of hand. With jazzy drums, rolling bass lines and floating guitar riffs their songs tell stories. The pieces rarely are shorter than six minutes. Singer Crissi pushes the band with her distinctive and powerful voice to one of an own kind. Comparisons with Grace Slick or Janis Joplin are no coincidence. CD $10 SKU:22351
HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS SAMPLER - VA Vol V Label:HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS (ITALY) Vol. V is the latest in Heavy Psych Sounds‘ ongoing series of label samplers highlighting new releases and new bands from its constantly-expanding roster.

COSMIC DISCOTHEQUE, VOL. 2-12 Junkshop Afro Disco Funk Gems From the 70's-Label:NAUGHTY RHYTHM RECORDS (Italy) Welcome back to the magic world of 'Cosmic Discotheque'! This second volume in the series will take you on an amazing journey through the Afro side of the '70s disco productions. Certainly, bands like Osibisa, Kongas and Barrabas with their special mix of Afro-jazz-funk and tribal-freak-rock, helped to spread this unprecedented blend of sounds, that along with classic disco music, were in fact the most danced rhythms throughout the European dance floors of the era. As on the first volume, the focus is on less known artists and unearthed little gems selected from forgotten dusty singles B sides. Exotic atmospheres and highly hypnotic tribal rhythms are the main ingredients of 'Cosmic Discotheque Vol. 2'. Twelve Afro-disco singles, all so infectious that it's impossible not to dance to. Stuff that you will be definitely looking for at the next local flea market COMP LP $22 SKU:22252
TASTY BUBBLEGUM FLAVOR -12 Rare U.S. Bubblegum Pop Jewels 1968-1971 -Label:NAUGHTY RHYTHM RECORDS (Italy) Talking about Bubblegum Music will bring you back to America at the end of the Sixties to a world where the music industry was at its very peak and the 7" format singles production was rather schizophrenic. The worldwide success of Ohio Express's "Yummy Yunmmi Yummi" and 1010 Fruitgum Company's "Simon Says" opened up the doors to a plethora of new bands ready to take the chance of this new born phenomena. Jerry Kasenetz and Jeffry Katz were the two producers behind many of these projects, while the bands were mostly formed by the same group of studio musicians including the unmistakable nasal voice of singer Joey Levin (Joey Ramone's main inspiration). Avoiding the classics, this compilation will get you through a dozen of rare and unknown productions. Twelve stellar pop gems dated between 1968 and 1971 and a bunch of great simple melodies, sticky like chewing gum. Yummy!!! Come and taste it. Features Professor Morrison's Lollipop, Johnny Cymbal, Gideon, Zebra, Bleus, Hungry Tiger, The Yummies, American Machine, Joey Levine, Kasnat & Katz Fighter Squadron, Jamie & The Sweetcorn, and Jordan Parker Revue. COMP LP $24 SKU:22251

CHAMPIGNONS- PREMIERE CAPSULE(1972 prog psych)Label:RETURN TO ANALOG Excellent mostly-instrumental combination of prog and psych served up by Champignons, a tight and experimental band from Québec. Released in 1972, 'Premiere Capsule', resplendent in its trippy day-glo mushroom sleeve, is a succession of seven guitar driven original compositions that manage to maintain any incredibly high standard from start to finish. All the tracks are superb, but several in particular stand out including the 11-minute experimental jam, 'Le Chateau Hante' (The Haunted Castle) and two instrumental numbers, 'Folies Du Mercredi' and 'Pop-Pino'. There is extremely good fuzz guitar throughout, as well as some exceptional flute solos courtesy of flautist Emile Naud. Hugely enjoyable and highly recommended LP $25 SKU:22141
CHOOSERS- ST ( 70s style Japanese powerpop)Label:BACHELOR You surely know that Japan is crazy for powerpop in any direction, they just LOVE it, the bubblegum or '70s blended, the rocking and rolling type, the kind of that make your hearts explode (sic!)... and of course there are hundreds of powerpop bands there - and MOST of them are actually pretty good, but few stand out, and The Choosers are definitely in the Top 3 LP $22 SKU:22280
DIE ERSTE MENSCHEN- APOCALYPSE NOW & THEN(BFTG style garage) Label:BACHELOR f you have the slightest interest in series like TEENAGE SHUTDOWN or BACK FROM THE GRAVE you get crazy for this.

Their sound is a bit like before mentioned bands, just give them a blend of wylder 60s combos and plant this seed into first class Crypt Records soil from circa 1993... Don't expect this to be your ordinary BFTG copycat band dressed in hipster garment LP $21 SKU:22323

MORE KICKS - ST (power pop style) Label:BELUGA More Kicks is an explosion of pop melodies, jet-fuelled guitar riffs and shifting, sinewy rhythms. The band arrived from nowhere -seemingly fully formed- at the end of 2017 on London's garage scene. They immediately stood out a mile thanks to their unique mix of pop sensibilities, rhythm & blues bass and good-time powerpop drums. Hidden away making loud music in tiny rooms, the trio (Sulli - vox/guitar; Kris - drums; Paolo - bass/vox) had been busy cooking up a rare alchemy. The result: a two-and-a-half-minute More Kicks song can touch on classic '60s garage, '70s NYC rock and roll, jagged '90s guitar pop - all wrapped in a razor sharp bundle. A glance backwards and a decisive step forward. LP $25 SKU:22281
DEAF RADIO- MODERN PANIC(heavy Greek psych) Label:IHAVEADRUM As chief proponents of hard rock and grievous genre assault, ever since the release of their debut album in 2017, this band has been hailed by many as one of the most exciting alt-rock bands to emerge from Greece in recent memory. Psychedelic but also hooky and super heavy - in manner of QOTSA getting freaky (but groovy) after a big cigarette or two. CD $19 SKU:22143
