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 Austin Grasmere, Brian Elliot and "The Connecticut Tribe" – and the instrumentation is billed as vocals, music and sounds – you figure out the rest. The set opens with some soundbites of Hollywood fan fare that segues into a mix of bagpipes, thundering percussion and vocals that sound like screams and whispers at the same time. The following track "Ritual Fest Of The Libido" rivals "LA Blues" by the Stooges in gutteral grunted nightmare soundscapes, but later tracks mix in more laidback grooves that are just as freaky. A total mindfrack of a record, and a pretty amazing one, if not for everybody! Other titles include "Organic Sundown", "Fantasy", "Crow Of The Black Tree", "Genitalia", "Toth, Scribe I" and "First World Of Bronze".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Abduction, 2014. New Copy
The second album from Invisible Hands – the group led by Alan Bishop of the Sun City Girls – and a record that's even better put-together than the first! There's a bit more of a song structure this time around – and some of the more tuneful moments are surprisingly powerful ... CD

Radiotelevizija Beograd/Atlantide (Germany), 1977. New Copy
Fusion-drenched rock from Predmestje – an obscure Yugoslavian group from the late 70s, but one who made some mighty nice sounds at the time! The quintet borrow a bit from the progressive era of a few years before – but are also never too jamming, and instead have a nice sense of focus ... CD

Pride/Fever Dream, 1973. New Copy
A gem of a record from the great Billy Butler – brother of better-known Jerry from the Chicago scene, and maybe best known for his northern soul work of the 60s – but a hell of a great artist here in a rare group soul date from the 70s! Billy's lead vocals are supported by the Infinity ... CD

Mark IV
Mercury/Fever Dream, 1973. New Copy
A group soul treasure from the 70s – and one with a very unique feel! The Mark IV are more of a southern soul group than some of the bigger east coast acts that were dominating the charts at the time – and they get some wonderful production here from Roy C, who keeps them in the same ... CD

EM/Paradise Bangkok (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy
With a singer this obscure, you might take the word "essential" in the title a bit loosely – but the set is a stunning batch of work from this popular Thai vocalist of the 70s! Dao Bandon's voice is amazing right from the start, even if you can't understand the language (although ... CD

Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
The influence of Sam Cooke runs deep in American soul music – not just because Sam was one of the first great soul singers of the 60s, but also because he had a really special way of putting over a message of hope and pride! This wonderful collection really shows that influence at its best ... CD
