Avengers VIReal Cool Hits (180 gram white vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Bacchus Archives/Dionysus, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 16.95
Not the San Francisco Avengers, of punk rock fame – but a really cool group from the decade before, and from the southern part of California! These guys are heavy on guitars, and clearly were inspired by the surf instrumental combos – but the style here is also a bit more ambitious, and works with some cool trippy elements at times – either odd echo on the keyboards, weird flare on the guitars, or a hip combination of sounds at once, making for almost a sense of counterpoint in the music that really expands the sound! The guitar work is surprisingly sharp, and often way more interesting than some of the bigger groups of this nature at the time – and titles include "The Avenger's Stomp", "None But The Brave", "Sahara", "Coming Home Baby", "Time Bomb", "Summer Place", and "Mr Lucky". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited pressing on white vinyl – and a bonus download too!)

New VariousAvengers & Other Top 60's TV Themes ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1960s/1998. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insane! The great folks at Sequel have used the buzz on the Avengers movie (or should we say "flop") to put together this massive 2CD, 60-track set of classic Brit TV themes from the 60s! There's a huge amount of stuff on here that we've never ever heard – and a lot of stuff that didn't even make it in their TV Classics box set. Sure, a few tracks might already be on other comps, but with 60 cuts at a nice low price, there's plenty here that you'll just die for. Lots of great work by the likes of Johnny Keating, Cyril Stapleton, Jack Dorsey, Bob Wallis, Tony Hatch, Ron Grainer, The Les Reed Strings, and others! Groovy package, and very groovy stuff throughout. CD

New Laurie JohnsonYou're Needed! – Suave Sixties Themes (aka England's New Big Band Sound – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/El (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of work from 60s UK maestro Laurie Johnson – best known for his theme to The Avengers, but represented here by an even wider-ranging batch of material! Half of the CD comes from the album England's New Big Band Sound – a rare American outing on Colpix Records! The style on those tracks is a bit like that of John Dankworth on some of his American records – jazzy at the core, but also with larger orchestral flourishes that put the work somewhere between jazz and popular instrumental. But given Johnson's penchant for hip timing and a nicely swinging groove, the album's pretty nice all the way through – never sleepy, and done with a good sense of presence on some of the instruments. Titles include "Jenny", "By Myself", "Pagan Love Song", "Nevada", "South Of The Border", "Bali Hai", "Twango", and "My Favorite Things". The remaining part of the CD features some of Johnson's famous themes – including "Theme From Dr Strangelove" and "The Avengers" – plus even better jazzy orchestral work pulled from sessions for Pye in the late 50s and early 60s – tracks that include "West End", "Limehouse", "Times Square", "Grand Central", "There's A Plot Afoot", "Lock Up Your Daughters", "Charmed Life", and "Minor Bossa Nova".

New VariousInstrumental Explosion – Incendiary Funk & R&B Instrumentals 1966-1973 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder-hitting, as the groove's completely without vocals overall – and the range of material is even more obscure than some of the usual BGP/Ace bits! The combos on the set range from rocking R&B combos to early funky jazz outfits – and the recording quality on most of these tracks is nice and rough and ready – with just the right edge to send over these cuts even more! Titles include "More Soul" by Ron Buford, "Ninety Eight Cents Plus Tax" by Detroit City Limits, "Chocolate Cherry" by Joe Tex Band, "Humpin" by Frank Armstrong & The Stingers, "Stokin" by Leon Ferguson & The Groove Tones, "Thing" by Lowell Fulsom, "Sundance (part 1)" by Lorenzo Holden, "Put Your Weight On It (part 1)" by Fillmore Street Soul Rebellion, "Roly Poly Mickey Lolich" by The Fans, and "Bad On Bad" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

VariousEl Paso Rock Vol 9 – Sand Surfin' – Border Town Rock N Roll 1964 to 1967 ... LP
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
The El Paso scene was miles and miles and miles away from the ocean – but the city's hotbed of indie groups of the 60s definitely picked up on the guitar-driven sounds from the coast – serving up the host of great instrumental and vocal numbers featured on the set! Make no mistake – this isn't copycat surf music, but a great example of the way that the deftness of surf guitar inspired thousands of young musicians in the 60s – giving them a way to really show off and improve their chops on the guitar in the years before more jamming modes of psych or prog. The sense of dexterity and economy here is amazing – and although some cuts have vocals, and some have other instrumentation in the lead, the guitar is really king on the set – and often produced with the kind of cool tricks they were using in LA. Titles include "Why I Cry" by Pitiful Panics, "Surf Beat 65" by Beach Nuts, "Mr Big" by Four Frogs, "Ghost Riders 65" by Scavengers, "Sand Surfin" by Four Dimensions, "Sky Diver" by Steve Cooper & The Avantis, and "Don't Need You No More" by Outer Limits. LP, Vinyl record album
