Contact High With The Godz

CD (Item 541652) ESP, 1966 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 10

Dark-edged, folk-tinged, and blues-drenched sounds from The Godz – one of the earthiest acts to record for the legendary ESP label – and one who had the same East Village power as The Fugs! The overall sound is nice and spare – rougher edged than some of the west coast work of this nature – kind of a folk blues aesthetic, filtered through trippier ideas – and recorded with the same haunting, moody elements as the first Pearls Before Swine album, but a lot more loose in the construction of the tunes – which almost feel improvised at times. Instrumentation includes acoustic guitar, violin, harmonica, maracas, and plastic flute – and titles include "Eleven", "Na Na Naa", "Turn On", "White Cat Heat", "1 + 1", and "Lay In The Sun".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cave Rock
ESP, 1969. New Copy
Crazy psyche era wierdness from Cromagnon – the band name and album title may reference prehistory, but this stuff is actually way ahead of it's time – if we didn't see the date on this thing, we'd have sworn it to be from the art damaged post punk early 80s! The group is credited to ... CD

Drag City, 1975. New Copy
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... CD

Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy
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 ... CD

Embryo/DBK Works, 1971. New Copy
Wonderfully tripped-out work from Air – a totally great little rockish band with a spare groovy feel – a mix of jazz, bits of folk rock, and some of the hipper sides of the singer/songwriter scene! Lead vocalist is Googie Coppola, who also plays piano, organ, and harpsichord – ... CD

Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Rare pop gems from late 60s Capitol Records – all tunes that have the fuzzy, freaky touches of the psychedelic generation – but which also come across with a catchy, tuneful style overall! The mix of modes is wonderful – handled here by top-shelf talents that include arrangers ... CD

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
The real sound of the British underground at the end of the 60s – a stellar 3CD package that goes way beyond the oft-heard modes from the classic rock and progressive years! Sure, all the big names from those years are totally great – but they've also obscured the really rich tapestry ... CD

Two Bones
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. New Copy
One of the hippest Curtis Fuller albums for Blue Note – and one of the rarest too – a set that was recorded in 1958, but only ever issued on vinyl in this rare Japanese pressing from the 80s! The date's quite unique – as it features "two bones", that is, two trombonists ... CD

KB Blues
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A real hard-burner from Kenny Burrell – a set that was recorded for Blue Note in the guitarist's early career, but not issued by the label until the 70s – and even then only in Japan! Kenny's got the sharp edge and strong sense of leadership you'll hear on his classic Midnight Blue ... CD

Poppin
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A rare gem from Hank Mobley's initial late 50s run at Blue Note – a session recorded by the label in 1957, but unissued at the time! The quality of the set is right up there with Hank's best from the period – presented here in full album format, and the mix of searing hardbop and ... CD

Far Away Lands
Blue Note (Japan), 1967. New Copy
A real treasure from the great tenorist Hank Mobley – and a record that shows him really opening up his sound in his later years at Blue Note! The album's got some key rhythmic elements that come both from the drumming of Billy Higgins and piano of Cedar Walton – both players who bring ... CD

Rajah
Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy
One of our favorite albums ever from the legendary trumpeter Lee Morgan – a set that Blue Note recorded in the mid 60s, but didn't show the world until almost two decades later! The album's got Lee as his lyrical best – working almost with a sense of exoticism, especially on the ... CD
