SuckTime To Suck ... CD
Parlophone/Fresh (South Africa), 1971. New Copy .... $12.99
Rare South African power rock from Suck, who definitely do not suck – fierce, hard charging, heavily rhythmic jams with straight up killer drums and rumbling groove that we'd put up there with some of the more raucous stuff that came out of the Haight Ashbury scene! The bass, drums & guitar interplay do some nice damage, and groove nicely when the mood strikes. A number of the tunes are covers that tunes, by groups like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Grand Funk, but the group puts their own stamp on them, and the titles include "Aimless Lady", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Sin's A Good Man's Brother", "The Whip", "Into The Fire", "Elegy".

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... CD
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy .... $12.99 15.98
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". CD

BeatlesRevolver ... CD
Apple/EMI, 1966. Used .... $5.99
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". This is also an enhanced version that includes a mini-Revolver documentary. CD

Brotherhood/Friend SoundComplete Recordings (Brotherhood 1968 /Brotherhood 1969/Joyride) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs .... $19.99 21.98
A trio of great late 60s RCA albums on a single set – the first two from The Brotherhood, and one more from the related Friend Sound! First up is the first album ever from The Brotherhood – an offshoot of Paul Revere & The Raiders, filled with some of that group's greatest early players! The core of the group features Drake Levin on guitar, Phil Volk on bass, and Mike Smith on drums – romping with the kind of raw, party-styled energy they brought to their work with their previous group – but at a level here that's way more heady, and definitely shows a stronger influence from psych! Tunes are still plenty catchy, but have some weird undercurrents too – in a cool Sunshine Pop sort of style – and the range of instrumentation is nicely fresh, and even a bit richer than usual for this sort of record. Titles include "Somebody", "Pastel Blue", "Close The Door", "Seasons", "Love For Free", "Lady Faire", and "Ice Cream". 1969's The Brotherhood is an even tighter set than the first album from the group – and one that has the group really finding a way to tap into their older garagey roots, while still keeping plenty of fuzz and psych intact! The drums are great – that powerful punch that Mike Smitty Smith always brought to his earlier pop work – but the themes are moodier, and the guitar nicely trippy, while still staying tight – sometimes with a bit more strut than we ever would have expected from these guys. The album features a few surprising covers – like "California Dreamin" and "Rose Garden" – plus nice original tracks "Deep Blue Sea", "Love Sketch", "Destination Unknown", and "Don't Let Go". But most amazing here is the Friend Sound album – an offshoot project recorded between the two Brotherhood albums – a wild batch of instrumental psychedelia – with plenty of avant garde touches thrown in! This is the sort of record that always restores our faith in major labels – and it makes us realize that no matter how many Elvis Presley albums RCA was selling in the 60s, there was also room to put out odd little record like this one. The enigmatic Friend Sound sound like a loose collective of hippie jazz musicians – playing flute, organ, guitars, percussion, piano, recorder, shovel (shovel?), finger cymbals, and just about anything else that seemed to be handy – and they had a style that was kind of like free-jamming jam band work – almost like the band and the engineers took a bucketful of drugs – so many that they got really mellow and dark – then went into the studio to cut a tripped-out album of instrumentals. The whole thing comes across with the same "anything goes" spirit of the NY 60s underground film scene – but with none of the silliness of bands like The Fugs – and it's that kind of energy that makes us love this one. Titles include "Childhood's End", "Lost Angel Proper St", and "The Empire Of Light". CD

DeathSpiritual Mental Physical – Original Reel-To-Reel Demo Recordings 1974-1976 ... CD
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy .... $12.99
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven of which were recorded on a two-track reel-to-reel stereo recorder – and it's exciting, pummeling, incendiary stuff! A worthy addition to Death revival campaign that began with Drag City's essential release of their For The Whole World To See album. Get it! Includes "Views", "The Masks", "Change", "World Of Tomorrow", "The Storm Within", "Dannis On The Motor City Drums" and more. CD

Deep PurpleShades Of Deep Purple ... LP
Tetragrammaton, 1968. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
The birth of a legend, and easily one of the heaviest records to hit the mainstream in the late 60s! The album's got a sinister quality that you can hear on the first few notes – a low-end, rumbling approach that brings in a lot more fuzzy bass than other groups of the time had ever thought to use – all topped with some of the most wickedly edgey guitar put on record to date, and undercut by drums that are almost verging on funk at times! Basslines set the tone for most of the tunes in the set – creating a bottom-heavy groove that would be copped many times in years to come, but which still sounds tremendously fresh here in the original. Titles include "Mandrake Root", "I'm So Glad", "One More Rainy Day", "Help", "Love Help Me", "And The Address", and "Hey Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

FourmyulaInside The Hutt – New Zealand's Pop-Psych Kingpins 1968/1969 ... CD
HMV/RPM (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy .... $13.99
The Fourmyula may have a weird name, but their groove is totally great – a wicked approach to pop psych that was lost to the larger 60s world outside of New Zealand – but which has gotten a really rich revival in recent years! The approach is similar to US work of the time – a bit of fuzz and echo tied around some tighter rhythms and hooks – but there's really something special, something unique about these guys – a voice that makes digging into these rare singles a really rich discovery – kind of a lost world of pop and psych flavored in some very fresh ways! As with other titles on the RPM label, the mastering, presentation, and production is totally great – light years past any sort of bootleggy psych reissues – which really furthers the fun of the set. Titles include the classic "Nature", plus "Orphan", "Scorpio", "Come With Me", "Honey Chile", "I Dig Your Act", "Mr Whippy", "Home", "Sally's Line", and "Cosy Picture Theatre". CD

New Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 2 – Scratch ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint- .... $5.99
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a spot of price sticker residue.)

John's ChildrenStrange Affair – The Sixties Recordings (Singles & Rarities/Orgasm with bonus tracks) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $18.99
Completely wonderful work from John's Children – a group who are probably best-remembered as the early home for a young Marc Bolan, but who are already great enough on their own! John's Children have a madly playful approach – one that brings together the best elements of Brit beat and psych, but with a wit that rivals The Who on A Quick One – no surprise, given that the group toured famously with The Who at the time! Yet these guys are hardly copycats at all – and are definitely one of the most unique groups from the London scene at the time – the start of so many ideas that other groups might steal later, and work into their own sound – yet served up here with a core essence that's completely unique, and still mindblowingly fresh after all these years. This package is the best and most complete we've ever seen on John's Children – and features 26 singles, including some solo Andy Ellison or Silence tracks – plus the full 10 track Orgasm album, and an additional 16 rare mixes and alternates too. Titles include "Strange Affair", "Desdemona", "Remember Thomas A Becket", "Sara Crazy Child", "Go Go Girl", "Arthur Green", "Midsummer Night's Scene", "Help", "Cornflake Zoo", Casbah Candy", "Killer Ben", "Jagged Time Lapse", "Leave Me Alone", "Why Do You Like", and "You're A Nothing".

National WakeWalk In Africa – 1979 to 1981 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold .... $12.99 15.99
Searing 70s punk from the South African scene – music that's quite a change from the funk and world beat modes you might expect! These guys are unapologeticaly influenced by the sounds of late 70s London – and step out here in a blistering guitar-driven approach to their music – one that's got a short, sharp shock throughout – sometimes in a surprisingly melodic style that echoes some New York work of the time, at other points with a strong strand of reggae influence that links them more towards some of the British Clash contemporaries! The music is plenty darn fresh throughout – a really great discovery to our Northern Hemisphere ears – and supported by a huge batch of notes and information on the band – handled by Keith Jones, the director of the film Punk In Africa. Titles include "Walk In Africa", "Time & Place", "Corner House Stone", "Vatsiketeni", "Black Punk Rockers", and "Beat Up The Lights". CD

Panama Limited Jug BandIndian Summer (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy .... $15.99
A really wonderful second set from Panama Limited – a group who've dropped the "Jug Band" from their name, and come across here with a very different sound! The album's still got lots of acoustic roots elements in the mix, but the overall conception is very strongly rooted in blues, then filtered through a more experimental generation – ala Captain Beefheart! It's clear that the group had been digging the Cap themselves, but they're not just copping his style here – as the album has a more pointed, tuneful approach – with vocals augmented by new group member Anne Matthews, who really helps them find a fresh groove. Way more trippy than before – thanks to some very evocative lyrics – and titles include "Moonshine", "Set Me Free", "Woman I Love", "Darkness Brings", "Laughing", and "Eastern Man". CD features bonus tracks – "Round & Round" and "Rotting Wooden In A White Collars Grave". CD

PlainsongIn Search Of Amelia Earhart ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... $14.99
An overlooked gem from early 70s Elektra – a wonderfully warm, wonderfully solid set of rootsy rock from this group headed by Ian Matthews! The set moves past some of Matthews' earlier efforts – a bit tighter at times, yet still far from any country rock cliches at all – definitely done at a time when this mixing of modes was still a very fresh concept for musicians like Ian, who were more than willing to find a lot of paths of their own. Some of the headier moments really make great use of the darker guitar corners of Andy Roberts – who works in subtle, but great ways – and the set also features a nice mix of acoustic and electric elements, served up sparely, and recorded in a really great way. Titles include "Yo Yo Man", "Louise", "Call The Tune", "Raider", "Side Roads", "I'll Fly Away", and "For The Second Time". CD

RotomagusSky Turns Red – The Complete Anthology ... LP
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... $18.99
Rare rock from Rotomagus – a heavy group from France – the complete discography of the group, and a completely fresh discovery to us! The sound is loose, ragged and raw on the unreleased album demo that's covers the first half of the anthology – which only enhances the power of it. Singer Alain Fontaine sings, screams and wails in English – fascinatingly, he is a good singer, but shrieks his head off with abandon on some killer songs here. The band is just as strong, showing command of rhythm and with strong solos as well as bashing away with intensity. In some ways, it's a late 60s-style heavy psych album, but played at breakneck speed, rugged soul and with little effort to tidy anything up. The second half is much different – featuring singles the group cut for Polydor, CBS and other labels – far less raucous and more French pop psych-indebted, and those numbers are great, too! They work as well in frenzy as they do with trippy harmonies – very impressive! Titles include "Laureline", "Little Green Man", "Fighting Cock", "Shout Now", "I Dig Life", "The Flufluting Flatmul" and more from the unreleased demo album, plus the rare singles "Le Haut Du Pave", "Nevada", "Eros", "Madame Wanda", "Laureline", "The Sky Turns Red" and more.

Guy SkornikPour Pauwels ... CD
EMI/Lion, 1971. New Copy .... $12.99
Lost legendary work from Guy Skornik – a heady set from early 70s France, and proof that there's a hell of a lot of greatness to discover on that scene! The album's got a blend of psych fuzz and deeper ideas that's not that far from Serge Gainsbourg – although the overall presentation is more cerebral, and influenced by the ideas of GI Gurdjieff, carried out by Skornik in this sublime blend of acoustic elements and larger orchestrations directed by jazzman Ivan Jullien! Like some of the best French work of this time, the album has a wonderful balance between the personal and professional – the intimate and the ambitious – which really makes things exciting and fresh, and very different than anything you might have been digging on this side of the Atlantic at the time. Titles include "Realite", "L'Ile De Paques", "Fulcanni", "Je Vois Ce Que Je Crois", "Quest Ce Que Le Dream", and "Je Ne Sais Pas Je Ne Sais Plus Rien". CD

Tony Joe WhiteBlack & White (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Monument/Warner (Japan), 1969. New Copy .... $16.99
Damn soulful work from Tony Joe White – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was so great at skirting both the borders of rock and soul music at the end of the 60s! There's a really fresh, new groove going on here – a vibe that shows an artist who's spent a decade drawing in all the best elements of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a slight touch of Nashville country at times too (no surprise, given the Monuments Records release of the set) – but also a more biting singer/songwriter ethos that really pushes the whole thing out to a much bigger rockish vibe! Drums are amazing – played by Jerry Carrigan with an especially funky quality on side one – and the tunes are a mix of great originals by White – many of which would be covered by others in years to come – plus some well-chosen covers, too. Tracks include "Soul Francisco", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", "Polk Salad Annie", "Aspen Colorado", "Who's Makin Love", and "Scratch My Back". CD features two bonus tracks too – "Ten More Miles" and "Georgia Pines". CD

Raucous R&B, tight psych and mod soul from the late 60s UK – on a stellar Vol 4 in the great Rare Mod series from Acid Jazz – and nearly everything on it is entirely fresh to our ears! Rare Mod really goes deep, uncovering tunes that are honestly as infectious as the major mod standard bearing hits of the day – with raw drums, killer Hammond organ grooves and gritty vocals that give everything a sharp edge – but it’s commited by groups that proudly flaunt classic soul and R&B influences. Great stuff! Includes "Big Bird" by Dog Soul, "Tell Daddy" by All Night Workers, "Together Forever" by Gary Farr and the T-Bones, "Me And My Baby" by Row Boat, "Cover Girl" by Perfumed Garden, "The Thinking Kind" by The Wild Ones, "Arthur" by Virgin Sleep, "LSD" by Tomorrow's Children and more, 16 in all.

New Vox Populi/Pacific 231Funk Off – Cut Chemist Presents Vox Populi (includes bonus 7 inch) ... LP
A Stable Sound, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP .... Just Sold Out!
Seminal sounds from the French underground of the early 80s – music from the group Vox Populi, plus the related Pacific 231 – both with a dark edge that rivals the best coming out of the north of England during the post-punk years! Like Cabaret Voltaire or 23 Skidoo, these guys really have a strong sense of the darker uses of analogue electronics – an understanding that's clearly informed by musique concrete, but turned towards simpler, starker ideas as well – often with the kind of chilling edge that we love in Throbbing Gristle at their best. These guys are a lot less posturing than TG, but have a similar sense of power – especially in the low-end range of the sonic spectrum – and this excellent compilation by Cut Chemist tells the full story of the group and their rare releases, some of which only ever appeared on cassette. Titles include "Chair Morte", "Mass Male", "Radio Moscou/Satyriasis", "Funk Off", "Alternative Fresh", "Bala Mala", "Mind", and "Chabman". Also features bonus tracks "Track 38 (parts 1 & 2)", "Funk Off (alt)", and "Bala Mala (alt)". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dantalion's ChariotChariot Rising (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing step sideways for London's Zoot Money – a move from mod to psych, with a trippy quality that's quite different from his jazzy sound a few years before! The group's got legendary fame – not just for the shift in styles by Zoot, but also for the fact that it features key work from a young Andy Summers – later of The Police – who works here with some great tones on guitar, and plenty of fresh ideas in all the songs he penned on the record! Money's vocals are wonderful – almost as if Georgie Fame were singing on a psych album – which is as unusual and compelling as you might think. These sessions were recorded in the late 60s, but mostly unissued at the time – but really rank with the best of the early Syd Barrett or Kevin Ayers generation – with titles that include "Coffee Song", "Madman Running Through The Fields", "This Island", "High Flying Bird", "Four Firemen", "Soma (parts 1 & 2)".

New Jackson C FrankJackson C Frank (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/4 Men With Beards, 1965. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only album ever recorded by troubled folk singer Jackson C Frank – but more than enough to have built up a huge legend around his music over the years! The album's a gem right from the very first note – and has that incredibly personal, incredibly unique feel you get in a rare few records like this – maybe Nick Drake (who claimed Frank as an influence) or Fred Neil – yet like both of them, a completely individual set that will leave you breathless at the end, and frustrated that you've got nothing else to follow it with! The record was produced by a young Paul Simon – who was working in British clubs during the same stretch that Frank was in London – and a young Al Stewart also plays just a bit on the record – another key supporter of Jackson's early music, as was Bert Jansch. Yet even without those famous friends, the record would be more than enough on its own – so years ahead of its time, the record companies never knew what to do with it – which has kept it very fresh over the years – the kind of set that's waiting to be discovered by an elite few. Titles include "Milk & Honey", "Yellow Walls", "Kimbie", "Blues Run The Game", "Don't Look Back", "Here Come The Blues", and "Just Like Anything". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones ... LP
Warner, 1979. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".
