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
Inside The Shadow
Machu Pichu, 1976. New Copy
The one-and-only record by Anonymous – a mid 70s Indianapolis group who only ever pressed up a few hundred copies – and now it's one of best and most desired private press gems of its time! It's got a great sound that bears the influences of some of the great California combos of the ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Wonderfully tripped-out pop from the late 60s – served up by a few famous names and an even better band of lesser-knowns – all of whom recorded for Warner Brothers and related labels at the time! The package does a great job of showing the "pop" side of psychedelia – a ... CD
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Numero Group does it again – and manages to pull together all the best bits from the crucially overlooked powerpop scene in the Land Of Lincoln – a wealth of wonderful groups from the 70s and 80s, all of whom recorded great indie sounds in Illinois! Sure, you've heard of Cheap Trick, ... CD
Cameo/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy
The complete Cameo Recordings of Jo Ann Campbell – a really unusual singer who first popped up in the earliest days of rock n roll, and who's working here at sort of a second chapter of her too-short career! The style is a mix of older rock and country modes with a tighter 60s sense of girl ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1981. New Copy Gatefold
Roky Erickson's fantastic early 80s solo material – tracks that were produced by Creedence Clearwater Revival's Stu Cook – with some of the most straight-forward and accessible rockers in Roky's canon, but still sporting his trademark eccentricity! Given his mythical personal history, ... CD
United Artists/Now Sounds (UK), 1968. New Copy
Wonderful sounds from a very groovy group – a mixed male/female ensemble who come off here with a surprisingly cool sound – kind of a mix of Sunshine Pop with some surprisingly dark undercurrents that definitely nod at the psych image on the cover! A few years earlier, these guys might ... CD
Try It Out
MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy
A wicked set of electro soul from Klique – a trio who've got a lot more to offer than some of their 80s groove contemporaries! The backings are a bit more electric than the funk of their roots, but the overall groove is graced with very strong vocals from the trio of Howard Huntsberry, ... CD
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 6 CDs & DVD
Some of the slinkiest, sexiest 70s soundtracks ever recorded – all packaged together here in one box set, along with a bonus DVD as well! The wonderful set brings together six steamy scores by Nico Fidenco – all penned for the softcore Emanuel films, both black and white, and a ... CD
In Viaggio Con Papa
Beat (Italy), 1982. New Copy 2CDs
A really great later soundtrack from the mighty Piero Piccioni – put together with a depth that goes way beyond what you might expect from its early 80s date – or the look of the cover! The music's got some really great styles that are right up there with some of the best cop/crime ... CD
