Fuzzed-out LA wonderfulness from Sky Saxon and his legendary Seeds – a garagey barrage of guitar, organ, and raspy vocals – and it's fleshed out brilliantly on this 2CD edition with the complete stereo and mono mixes, alternate versions and the rare original mono version of Sly Saxon's Spoonful Of Seedy Blues album in full! First and foremost is Web Of Sound – virtually the definition for garage rock in the mid 60s – and certainly one of our favorites! It all builds up to the super-long closer "Up In Her Room" – and before that is one raucous should-be classic after another, including "Pictures And Designs", "Just Let Go", "A Faded Picture", "Tripmaker", "Mr Farmer", and "Rollin Machine". Disc One features the stereo version followed by 7 bonus tracks. Disc Two features the mono version of Web Of Sound, followed by the mono version of Sky Saxon's A Full Spoon Of Seedy Blues – a record that really gets at the sheer raw power of his best work! Despite the title, the album's hardly a straight set of blues – more a blend of rock, psychedelia, and rootsy influences – in the manner of some of the earliest work by Love, but done with a healthy nod to Chicago electric blues. Saxon wrote most of the tunes – and titles include "Moth & The Flame", "I'll Help You", "Cry Wolf", "The Gardener", and "Creepin About".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A mighty musical tribute to the famous Good Vibrations record store – born in the heady Belfast scene of the 70s, and home to some great Irish punk on its own label! Yet the music here is not just punk, but also the sounds that inspired the store from the years before – a bit of reggae ... CD

Not the New York Dolls – despite their striking picture on the cover – and instead a whole host of great tracks from previous decades – all the rich R&B, rock, and soul that inspired the later sound of the Dolls! The cuts here are all nice and gritty, and plenty soulful too ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
A beautiful batch of rare treasures by early 60s LA vocal group The Innocents – one that compiles their great singles for Reprise, Warner, Decca and A&M, along with some long buried demos – and it's a wonderful introduction to a should-be legendary group! The set kicks of with the ... CD
Pour Pauwels
EMI/Lion, 1971. New Copy
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 ... CD
Lonely Surfer
Reprise (Japan), 1963. New Copy
A haunting LP of classic LA studio instrumental tracks, arranged and conducted by one of the most twisted figures to come out of that city's music scene in the 60s! One the surface, this stuff is just a serene batch of covers like "Ebb Tide", "Magnificent Seven", and "Stran ... CD
Rocket (Finland), 1975. New Copy
Man, these guys look weird on the cover – and they also sound pretty weird on the record, too – in this strange mode that really makes the album an unusual one all the way through! There's lots of dark phrasing on the guitars that really offset the whiteness of the cover – almost ... CD
