New VariousGolden Groups Volume 56 – Best Of Norton Records Vol 1 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Norton Records takes over the excellent Golden Groups series – using the format as a great way to present their vocal soul treasures! The look and feel is similar to older Golden Group volumes on Relic – but the music here pops even more, and has a more expansive, more expressive style – the kind of Norton charm that we've dug for years over their 45rpm reissues and their great reissues and compilations! This first volume features a whopping 17 rare group soul treasures – lost gems that include "I Bring Home The Bacon" by The Dappers, "Arabia" by The Delcos, "Falling Star" by Velquins, "Jelly Bean" by Dreamtones, "Cha Wailey Routa" by Caucers, "Lonely Nights" by King Crooners, "Lost In Dreams" by Wisdoms, "Voodoo Woman" by Shades, and "Sandy" by Five Gents.

La La BrooksAll Or Nothing ... LP
Norton, 2013. New Copy ... $12.99
Brand new solo work from La La Brooks of The Crystals – a singer who first worked with Phil Spector when she was only 13 years old – and who still sounds pretty darn great all these many years later! The folks at Norton have kept the record strongly in an old school 60s soul mode – a style that works perfectly with La La's lead, as she works her way through a surprisingly great range of tunes – not just soul numbers, but a few surprising rockers from the Small Faces, Bee Gees, Willy DeVille, and others – tracks that really help bring a mod soul vibe to the album. Titles include "All Or Nothing", "A Boy Like You", "Crazy For You", "Dear Boy Love Girl", "I Broke That Promise", "Sun Is Shining", and "Two Is Company". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaOuter Darkness – Space Poetry Vol 3 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
The third incredible chapter of lost Sun Ra material in the Space Poetry series – and a set that's a bit different than the first two! Side one of this record features two longer numbers – in contrast to the shorter poems on previous volumes – with Ra telling these cool little stories over music, "I Gotta Get Away" and "Know What It's Like On My Planet" – both richly illustrated not only by the backings, but also by his vivid narration – surprisingly dramatic at times, with a bad-rapping feel that's almost funky! Side two features two versions of "The Outer Darkness" – one with a repeated text by Wisteria, over weird electric backings – the other with June Tyson over even wilder electronics! Other tracks are from a 1977 on-air performance in Philly – very spiritual numbers that include "Black Holes In Space", "This Is My Day", "A Better World", and "The Scheme Of Words" – with Ra up front and lots of weird voices over organ in the back!

Sun RaSub-Dwellers – Space Poetry Vol 2 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1982. New Copy ... $12.99
Amazing sounds from Sun Ra – vocal recitations, weird words, and spoken bits – all set to some mighty cosmic music! The work here is all previously unissued, and pulled from rare tapes recorded in 1966, 1968, and 1982 – an amazing discovery in the Ra archive, with a real focus on his more poetic side! The set begins with some wonderfully echoey bits – Ra's vocals in the lead, and some cool abstract sounds and electronics behind him. Other tracks have even more obscure elements in the background, and a few others provide some more familiar jazz elements – but overall, the whole thing's got a wickedly spaced-out feel – very much what you might expect if you'd ever heard the myth of Ra before hearing one of his records! Titles include "The Universe Is Endless", "The Sub-Dwellers", "Music Is A Universal Language", "The Universe Sent Me", "A Cosmic Dimension Of Music", "They Taught Me To Share", and "Worship Of A Statue".

Sun Ra & OthersMy Way Is The Spaceway – Space Poetry Vol 4 ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
An incredible chapter in the rich career of the legendary Sun Ra – tracks that blend together music and spoken word passages – the latter of which are usually in support of his unique philosophy of the cosmos! The titles here really give an idea of the thoughts within – "The Music Is Like A Mirror", "My Way Is The Spaceways", "The Music Is A Sound Image", and "The Music Is A Vibration" – all very long tracks that are spoken by Ra in this very powerful voice – with a presence that we don't always hear from him this well on record, often set to backings that feature reed work on flute or tenor sax, mixed with a bit of light percussion. These aren't just readings, or poetry mixed with jazz – but a great glimpse at the truly theatrical side of Sun Ra's presentation, served up beautifully here in this special package.

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.

New VariousEl Paso Rock Vol 6 – Black Out ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Raw rock from the El Paso scene of the early 60s – most of it material produced by local music hound Calvin Boles – a force as important to that scene as Lee Hazlewood was to Phoenix! Boles has a great ear for a sharp guitar line – and really manages to bring the best out of all the players here, giving the tunes an echoey feel that's mighty nice – and which really serves to fan the sparks of genius into a much longer-burning flame! Norton's done a great job with this volume – and have managed to unearth some rare Bobby Fuller tracks, along with gems from contemporaries on the Yucca and Exeter labels. Titles include "Black Out" and "Tickler" by The Sherwoods, "Hot Rod Ford" by DY & The Motivaters, "Lonely" by David Hayes & The Pawns, "Pawn" by The Pawns, "You Hold My Letters" by Bill Taylor & The Sherwoods, "Judy" by The Chancellers, "Dance To The Palisades" by Frank Gonzales & The Palisades, and "You're In Love" and "Say Honey" by Bobby Fuller.

New VariousWolfe City Madness – Twisted Primitive Hillbilly Bop From Wolf-Tex Records ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great rockabilly sounds from a tiny Texas label – an imprint so small it only pressed up 300 copies of each of its singles – and never reissued them at all! This long-overdue package really digs deep into the Wolf-Tex label – to come up with a handful of gems that really illuminate the company's contribution to music at the start of the 60s – raw tunes that bring together the best elements of early rock, rough-edged country, and even a trace of Western swing at times. All tracks are pretty rare, and the set also features a few unissued numbers too – and titles include "How Much Do You Miss Me", "The Gospel Will Speak", and "Back To Old Wyoming" by Harold Montgomery; "Rock In My Arms" by Herman Stone, "Marguerite" by Ralph & Roy, "My Three Sorrows" by Col Ralph Red McKee, "Waves On The Bayou" by Ramblin Roy Cunningham, and lots more – including some songs by unknown artists, and even a bit of a radio show too!

New VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 4 – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith – A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly & Surf From The Fifties & Sixties ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A storming mix of R&B, early soul, and rare rockers – all hand-picked by the famous team of Keb Darge and Little Edith! We first knew Keb as an expert in raw funk over 20 years ago – back at a time when few DJs cared about the style – and you can definitely hear Keb's funk-trained ears at work here – as the tunes are all plenty raw and filled with sharp edges – way way different than any mainstream assumptions you might have about rock or soul from this time! The vibe is similar to some of the best Cramps-fueled compilations, or some of the hipper Norton titles – and titles include "Get Whiz" by The Dazzlers, "Jam & Jelly" by The Col-Lee Jets, "Shis Kebab" by The Black Albinos, "Dance Franny Dance" by The Floyd Dakil Combo, "Nervous Breakdown" by Gregory Dee & The Avanties, "Steady With Betty" by Benny Joy, "Please Give Me Something" by Bill Allen & The Back Beats, and "The Shake" by George Fleming.

New VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 3 – A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly & Surf From The 50s & Early 60s – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Keb Darge continues that great step backward he's been taking in recent years – moving from his funk of the 60s and 70s to the much rawer sound of the generation before – served up in a host of rare singles filled with heavy drums, ripping guitar, and a frenzy of amazing vocals and rhythms! Little Edith is on deck to help Keb pick the tunes – and together they come up with some great gems we'd never have heard otherwise – really raw grooves that are somewhere between the space of the R&B and jukebox mambo of the Jazzman world in recent years – and the bolder, twangier grooves you'd expect from the best vintage work on Norton Records. Yet the vibe here is also different than either of those references too – a lot more freewheeling, and culled from a great love of rare vinyl that really keeps things fresh. Tracks include "Peter Gunn Twist" by The Rebel Rousers, "Connie Lou" by Ray Taylor & Alabama Pals, "Barricuda" by The Page Boys, "Hang-Out" by Joe Lee & Orchestra, "Thunder Reef" by Shindigs, "Geraldine" by Ole Miss Down Beats, "Whiphash" by Riki & The Rikatones, "Rock & Roll Guitar" by Johnny Knight, and "I'm The Wolf Man" by Round Robin.

New VariousPicaro – Old Fashioned Cha Cha, Twist, Rhum-Exotica, & Other Fine Melodies ... LP
Grumete (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A Spanish compilation, but one that's filled with wonderful tunes from around the world – a wicked assortment of offbeat rock, Latin, and R&B gems – most of which we'd never heard before! The track list is wonderful – almost like Norton Records being set loose on a globe's range of rare records – as American 45s mix up with some especially cool ones from Europe and South America too! The sound is raw throughout – definitely an R&B sense of energy going through most numbers – and titles include "Runaround Sue" by Roberto Seto, "Vivo Perche T'Amo" by Riccardo Rauchi, "Marchand De Melons" by Les Bretells, "24000 Baisers" by Jacky Noguez, "Chakkiri Bushi" by Micky Anderson, "Dark Eyes" by Max Greger, "Shout" by Sandy Ford, "Murmullo En La Selva" by Los Cuandos, and "Tin Lizzy" by Red Apple & The Turnovers. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Also includes a colorful insert with notes.)
