✨✧ VariousCrazy Rhythms Of Mata Hari – Rolling Rockabilly, Hot & Cool Hillbilly, Wild Western Swing, Sleazy Listening, Sinuous Soul, & Slinky R&B ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A much more American-styled set of tracks than you'd guess from a record with Mata Hari in the title – mostly work from the hillbilly and R&B sides of the spectrum – pulled from a range of rare singles from the 50s! The vibe is a nice twist on some of the other compilations on the Stag O Lee label – and like the best of those, the mix here features very obscure numbers alongside tracks that might have been big in their day, but have really been lost to the shifting sands of time – nicely revived here for a new generation. The set's got an especially great way of being color-blind to divisions between genres that some folks might insist on – and in a way, maybe more reflects the on-the-ground listening patterns that happened back in the day. Titles include "Doggonit" by Jimmy Spellman, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "Cat Music" by Dave Bartholomew, "Rock A Billy Gal" by Hayden Thompson, "Black Cat" by Tommy Collins, "Snake Eyed Mama" by Al Casey, "Rocket 88" by Bill Haley & His Saddlemen, "Ghost Train" by The Swanks, "Rattlesnake Baby Rattlesnake" by Joe Johnson, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver, "Snake Charmer" by Mad Man Jones, "Cajun Queen" by Red Sovine, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, and "Fever" by Jim Tyler.

✨✧ Danny Elfman/Oingo BoingoForbidden Zone (colored vinyl) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Varese, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The classic cult soundtrack by Danny Elfman and The Mystic Knights Of The Oingo Bongo – a lot more indicative of Elfman's pre-Hollywood era, with crazy songs and sounds that are perfectly suited to the film's odd mishmash of Max Fleischer cartoon and early big band jazz inspired lunacy!

Gruppe SOKDer Grune Vogel ... LP
Black Pearl (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A set that's as freaky as you might guess from the cover – played by a German jazz ensemble who aren't afraid to let their hair down! The group's biggish, and the music has a great funky big band vibe – especially in the mode of some of the hippest large groups on the MPS label during their late 60s/early 70s golden years – a mode that was probably a strong inspiration for these guys too! Ulrich Gumpert is upfront on Hammond, Fender Rhodes, and a bit of acoustic piano – but there's also some very tight horns on many tracks, a strong electric bass and guitar in the rhythms, and some vocals from both Gumpert and female singer Barbara Volz – who can scat in a very cool way! A perfect balance between jazz, psych, and funk – with tracks that include "Modifikation", "Bruder John", "Sok Oriental", "Strandgut", "Fenster Auf", and "Du Lebst In Einer Grossen Stadt".

TomsToms ... LP
Black Sheep, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A rare slice of power pop from the end of the 70s – just the kind of indie label gem that makes the genre so great! In a world where so many other groups were getting punky or quirky, The Toms keep things tight and right – really focusing on catchy melodies and well-penned rhythms – delivered with a simple, straightforward approach that's free from gimmicks, but plenty darn compelling. Lyrics are pretty fresh, but also have a sort of "instant classic" feel – making you wonder if you'd heard the songs before, given the way they grab you right away. Titles include "Let's Be Friends Again", "You Must Have Crossed My Mind", "Other Boys Do", "The Door", "It's Needless", "The Flame", "Think About Me", and "Better Than Anyone Else".

✨✧ Laughing HyenasYou Can't Pray A Lie ... LP
Touch & Go/Third Man, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first proper LP by Laughing Hyenas with a rawer, more raging vibe than later records! This along with the earlier EP that was expanded and re-released as Merry Ground a little later captures the band at their fiercest, capable of the more measured punk blues sound they'd be more celebrated for later on, but done here with such a fiery intensity here it's hard to imagine John Brannon's voice could even survive another decade at this level! Includes "Love's My Only Crime", "Seven Come Eleven", "Black Eyed Susan", "Lullaby And Goodnight", "Desolate Son", "Dedications To The One I Love" and "new Gospel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered by Bob Weston and featuring previously unseen photos, flyer facsimiles and more!)

TagesStudio (180 gram pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Bear Family (Germany), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99 39.98
Punchy grooves from Tages – a Swedish group that combines the inspiration of some of grittiest, most raucous rock of the early psych and immediate pre-psych era – from the UK, US and their native Sweden – with killer hooks and harmonies that should've made them global superstars! Stunningly, the album never saw release outside of Sweden at the time – a real shame, as it's a great mix of tight, catchy, yet raging rock & roll – recorded at Abbey Road, and truly one of the cooler pop psych relics of the period! Includes "Have You Seen Your Brother Lately", "I Left My Shoes At Home", "The Old Man Wafwer", "She's Having A Baby Now", "Seeing With Love", "Created By You" and more. This great vinyl reissue from Bear Family includes the 30 black & white psych film Dalamania, featuring Tages – on DVD for the first time ever! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Verve, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very nice gatefold pressing – with the original peel-off banana sticker on the cover!)
