New AvengersAvengers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
4 Men With Beards, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The incendiary full length by The Avengers – their almighty, unjustly overlooked self-titled set (aka the Pink Album)! This is one of our absolute favorite Bay Area punk albums of any era – recorded in '77 and '78, but it went unreleased until 1983. We have no doubt that if this thing came out properly in '78 and got any kind of distribution, The Avengers could have built a massive legend – similar to the way X busted out of LA – and conquered punk fans the world over. Righteous, rage-filled, fearless and catchy – with one of great punk frontwomen in Penelope Houston. Do not dismiss this as just another 70s punk album. It's a masterpiece! Includes "We Are The One", "Car Crash", "No Martyr", "Desperation", "The Amerikan In Me", "Second To None", "Corpus Christi", "Uh-Oh" and more. 14 on all. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert.)

Laurie JohnsonYou're Needed! – Suave Sixties Themes (aka England's New Big Band Sound – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/El (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $4.99
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 ... $19.99
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.

New VariousSuper Funk Vol 4 – Rare & Classic Street Funk From The Vaults 1966 – 1973 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk galore – and easily one of the best titles in the massive Super Funk series! This one seems to go deeper than all the previous volumes – really digging down for some obscure tracks that push past the obvious funky 45 standards, to include some lost gems from rare sources in the southern scene! The set's awash in hard drums, fuzzy bass, tripped out guitar, and lots of rootsy deep soul vocals – stepping from track to track with a quality level that beats most other funky 45 collections on the market, made even better by some superb liner notes from compiler Dean Rudland! Titles include "I Got Some" by Billy Garner, "Deep Soul (part 2)" by Ron Buford, "Doin The Model" by Eddie Clearwater, "Crazy Legs (part 2)" by Albert Washington, "Momma Momma" by Betty Barney, "Don't Ever Change" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "The Warm Up (part 1)" by Clifton White, "Chicken Scratch" by The Chili Peppers, "Fat N Funky" by Charles Crawford, "Super Cool (You're Just A Super Fool)" by Pat Hunt, "Out Of Sight" by The Soulsetters, and "Boogaloo Party" by Joe Swift's International. 20 tracks in all!

New VariousEl Paso Rock Vol 9 – Sand Surfin' – Border Town Rock N Roll 1964 to 1967 ... LP
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
