Rare psychedelia from all over the world – rock, soul, funk and astral folk – styles flowing cohesively on a single compilation thanks to the killer melodies, hard drums & percussion, and the impeccable taste of the Now Again/Stones Throw team! Forge Your Own Chains, simply put, is one of the best ever compilations of its kind. A few of the tracks have been reissued in some capacity and have recognizable names to rare psych and funk collectors – it's to Now Again's credit that they're going for a great experience rather than simply compiling the deepest, darkest rarities – but that said, all this stuff is obscure in the grand scheme and totally amazing. It features tracks from the US, Colombia, Sweden, Iran, Nigeria and beyond – tracks by Ofege, East Of Underground, DR Hooker, Baby Grandmothers, Ana Y Jaime, The Strangers and more. Amazing, hard grooving psychedelia for obscure rock and rare beat diggers alike! Titles include "Song Of A Sinner" by Top Drawer, "Smiling Faces Sometimes" by East Of Underground, "Forge Your Own Chains" by DR Hooker, ""Don't You Feel Me" by Damon, "Two To Make A Pair" by The Strangers, "It's Not Easy" by Ofege, "Somebody's Calling My Name" by Baby Grandmothers and more. 15 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The collected work of a mighty trippy group from the Indian scene – a psychedelic combo who worked in the 70s, but who had the same sort of edge you'd hear from the American and British scenes of the late 60s!

An American psychedelic classic from mid 70s Baltimore – awash in heavy fuzz and lots of electric effects!

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!

Evening Colours (180 gram vinyl)
Lion, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing music from Laurance Vanay – actually a recording name for Jacqueline Thibault, a hell of a great keyboardist but an artist the label thought would be better off billed as a man!

Rockadrome, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A fierce set of Icelandic hard rock from the early 70s – a heavy power trio, and one with a sound that's as dark as you'd guess from the image on the cover!
