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

Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy
Jack Nitzsche was one of the greatest producers of the LA scene of the 60s – a legendary talent whose work was a key counterpart to frequent associate Phil Spector, but which also took on lots of other weird twists and turns of its own! Jack has this mad appeal that you can probably guess ... CD

Separate Oceans
Numero, Mid 70s. New Copy
Really great work from Ned Doheny – an overlooked talent on the LA scene of the 70s – one who had the tightest, smoothest touches of the best of the AOR generation – but a surprising undercurrent of soul as well! Ned's got that unique blend we find in a rare few artists from the ... 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

Numero, 1970s. New Copy
A really tremendous batch of dark-themed tunes from the American underground of the 70s – a treasure trove of under-discovered acts who were all inspired by the deeper brooding of the Led Zep and Black Sabbath generation! Unlike later manifestations from the indie scene, the work here isn't ... 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
