Lesley GoreCalifornia Nights (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the best ever albums by Leslie Gore – full of sweet natured girl pop songcraft that's on par with her biggest hit singles – but with an underlying sadness and overall emotional depth that's underappreciated to this day! It might not be as monumental as, say Pet Sounds, but we truly don't understand how the mix of sugar sweet songs and genuinely resonant emotion here never got the critical props it deserves. That's OK – WE get it, and we know you will, too! Production by Bob Crewe and arrangements by Jack Nitzsche – and titles include "California Nights", "Treat Me Like A Lady", "Bad", "I'm Going Out (The Same Way I Came In)", "Maybe Now", "Love Goes On Forever", "Off And Running", "Lilacs And Violets", "The Bubble Broke" and "Cry Like A Baby". This great Ace CD version goes way above the call of duty, with huge number of bonus tracks culled from her previous couple of LPs and rarities from the same mid 60s period – 15 of them, adding up to 25 tracks in all! Bonus tracks include "My Town, My Guy And Me", "Let Me Dream", "Start The Party Again", "I Just Can't Get Enough Of You", "I Can Tell", "That's What I'll Do", "Happiness Is Just Around The Corner", "Hold Me Tight" and more.

✨✧ Chocolate WatchbandMelts In Your Brain Not On Your Wrist – The Complete Recordings 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 22.99
Throw away all of your other 60s psychedelic albums – because with this massive 2CD set, you'll hardly need them! The Chocolate Watchband were one of the key groups of the California scene of the 60s – a hard-rocking outfit that emerged in the garagey psyche years, and worked in the same south bay scene as Count Five and Syndicate Of Sound. Yet unlike either of those bands, Chocolate Watchband never scored as big on the charts – and also had a harder, rougher, edgier sound that showed what a young group could really do when given the space. There's a Stones-like sense of power here – especially on the rougher, blusier numbers – but also a Love-like sense of tightness and desire to hone the power of the guitar into a key force for the youth of the 60s. And although the group's discography has been slightly mysterious for years, this 2CD set more than corrects any problems – by offering up the full scope of the group's work – including singles on the Uptown and Hanna Barbera labels, material from their Tower LPs, later unissued cuts – and full notes on everything, including those studio sessions that didn't always feature all the members of the group. 43 tracks in all – with amazing notes, photos, and details on the music!

Count FivePsychotic Revelation – The Ultimate Count Five ... CD
Double Shot/Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A psych masterpiece – expanded! Count Five only ever recorded one album – the legendary 1966 Psychotic Reaction, an instantly powerful blend of fuzzy guitars, burn-out organ, and urgent rhythms – as important to the sound of Northern California as early Love records were to the sound of LA! The record alone is more than worth revisiting, but this tasty reissue package ups the ante to 24 tracks from the original 12 – including non-LP singles, unissued tracks, and even some early bits and demos. Plus, the whole thing's packaged with a huge booklet of notes on the group – getting way past the myths spread about them by Lester Bangs, and letting the members of the group tell their own short-lived story. Titles include "Double Decker Bus", "Contrast", "You Must Believe Me", "Psychotic Reaction", "The World", "She's Fine", "The Morning After", "Mailman", "Enchanted Flowers", "Revelation In Slow Motion", "Out In The Street", and "People Hear What I Say".

Jordan De La SierraGymnosphere – Song Of The Rose ... CD
Unity/Numero, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
Spacey piano work from Jordan De La Sierra – material that's clearly informed by the 60s experiments of La Monte Young and Terry Riley, but which also has a more open, spiritual quality too! The piano has a nice sense of tuning – one that's almost watery at points – and Jordan's in no rush to let the notes unfold, as he often waits for one to resonate out before starting the next – which creates this very spacious, meditative quality throughout – a mode that's also inspired by Indian music, but much more laidbck and North California! The package reproduces the original 2LP set – complete with artwork and original notes. (Out Sound, Rock) CD

DictatorsDictators Go Girl Crazy! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/Real Gone, 1975. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
Snotty New York proto-punk with more than just an undercurrent of comedy running through the beefy tunes, and a heavy dose of good ol' swagger! The Dictators are truly, completely punk – even if Go Girl Crazy pre-dates the genre classification by a year or so – and even if their groove is closer to a crotch thrusting, garage version or parody (?) of Bad Company than it is the more revolutionary CBGBs bands. These are punks in the truest sense – sarcastic and ironic. Handsome Dick Manitoba and the boys run through 9 numbers on the classic original album – "The Next Big Thing", "I Got You Babe", "Back To Africa", "Master Race Rock", "Teengenerate", "California Sun", "Two Tub Man", "Weekend", "(I Live For) Cars & Girls" and more. This great 40th anniversary edition has a killer batch of bonus material, too! 2 classic tracks are re-mixed by Dictators devotee Andrew WK – "Two Tub Man" and "Weekend" – plus a bunch of great outtakes, alternate versions and more from the original sessions. 18 tracks in all!

✨✧ Bob DylanBest Of The Cutting Edge 1965/1966 – Bootleg Series Vol 12 ... CD
Columbia, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
Pinch yourself – you've gotta be dreaming – because Columbia Records just unlocked the vaults, and unearthed a treasure trove of never-heard recordings from the sessions from some of Bob Dylan's greatest records – Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde On Blonde! Each record is a masterpiece in its own right – the product of countless creative moments by Dylan in the studio, only some of which made it on record – leaving a lot more to be rediscovered all these many years later, and finally offered up to paint a vivid picture of Dylan's genius in 1965 and 1966! Some tracks are quite different – demos, acoustic versions, piano versions, and even a few rehearsals – and if you dig Bob Dylan at all, you'll find plenty here to love. 2CD set features 36 tracks in all – with unreleased unusual versions of "Tombstone Blues", "Positively 4th Street", "Love Minus Zero/No Limit", "California", "You Don't Have To Do That", "Like A Rolling Stone", "Medicine Sunday", "Desolation Row", "Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence", "Just Like a Woman", "Lunatic Princess", "I'll Keep It With Mine", and lots more!

Lesley GoreSomeplace Else Now ... CD
MoWest/Real Gone, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 16.98
An obscure later album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's far more mature and adult than you might know from her 60s girl pop hits! The album's cut for Motown's MoWest subsidiary, and has the same hip style as other albums on the label at the time – kind of a California singer/songwriter style, which fits well with all the original material penned by Gore for the album – arranged with kind of a gentle, glowing sound by Artie Butler and the team of Michael Omartin and Jimmie Haskell. The approach is laidback and warm on most numbers, with compressed orchestrations that would be right at home behind Dionne Warwick – and titles include "She Said That", "Out Of Love", "For Me", "The Road I Walk", "Someplace Else Now", "Mine", and "Be My Life".

JD SoutherBlack Rose (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Omnivore, 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
One of the sweetest singer-songwriter records of the mid 70s country rock era – beloved by fans, but largely unknown to the masses after all these years! Black Rose is JD Souther's second record, and it's a thing a beauty – produced by Peter Asher and featuring a who's who Souther's famous friends and lot of the great California session musicians of the time, but it's really about the intimate songcraft and the warmth of Souther's voice. Really beautiful stuff and it sounds as great as ever! Includes "Banging My Head Against The Moon", "If You Have Crying Eyes", "Your Turn Now", "Faithless Love", "Baby Come Home", "Silver Blue", "Midnight Prowl", "Doors Swing Open", "Black Rose" and more. This great Omnivore version, on the cusp of the album's 40th anniversary includes 7 bonus tracks: "Faithless Love (Live)", demos of "Can Almost Seet It" and "Border Town", "Texas Nights And Mexican Moons" and more.

✨✧ Yoon Youn SunWing Of Peace ... CD
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
Sultry post folk psychedelia from Korea's Yoon Youn Sun – with sweet female vocals and a fairly moody overall groove! Wing Of Peace is really melodic take on the post folk and psychedelic singer/songwriter sound of the early 70s – a set that recalls both the warmth of the California scene as well as the dreamy pop late 60s pop of other climes – especially the lovely ladies of the French scene. There are lovely female vocals at the forefront of the songs, and stripped down backing of the drums, guitar, bass and Farfisa! 12 tracks in all: Korean titles that we can't translate, but love to listen!

James VincentSpace Traveler (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Caribou/Vivid (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $25.99
Warmly stepping grooves from James Vincent – an under-acknowledged genius of the 70s crossover scene! Vincent works here in a title that's smooth and compressed – a bit like more popular AOR work of the time, but with some surprising soulful touches too – especially in the rhythms, which are extra-nice, given that drums are by Harvey Mason and Clyde Stubblefield! Instrumentation often has a warm 70s California glow – keyboards and guitar all wrapped up nicely together, with vocals folded in nicely – kind of a late 70s extension of the wonderful style of Nick DeCaro's album on Blue Thumb. There's a few great grooves in the mix, and titles include "Moonday", "Firefly", "Drifting Into Love", "Mankind", "Song For Jayme", and "Stepping Up". (Soul, Rock) CD

Bobby WhitlockOne Of A Kind ... CD
Capricorn/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $21.99
A killer from Bobby Whitlock – an artist who's definitely one of a kind, as few folks could ever hope to cut a record this great! Whitlock recorded previously for ABC/Dunhill, but he's right at home here in a Capricorn Records setting – which turns out to be the perfect format for Whitlock's well-crafted blend of roots rock and southern currents – already great enough at first listen, but even more amazing when you flip to the notes and realize that Bobby's handling most of the guitar parts, piano, and organ on the record – as well as using overdub to provide his own backup vocals too! Whitlock's one of that rare breed – maybe like Tony Joe White – who can do most of the work himself, but all without ever being too big for his britches, and coming across really fresh, personal, and vibrant throughout. Titles include "Free & Easy", "Going To California", "Movin On", "Have You Ever Felt Like Leavin", "We Made It To The Moon", and "Be Honest With Yourself". CD

VariousAOR Global Sounds 1977 to 1982 ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
AOR sounds from around the globe – proof that sweet, smooth 70s grooves didn't just come from studios in California and New York! The records here are all relatively obscure – mostly non-American acts, but working with a wonderfully groovy, wonderfully laidback style – nicely polished, but never too slick or commercial – and very much in that special spirit that's been lauded of late by the growing waves of AOR collectors around the globe! Most numbers come across with a nicely soulful vibe, and a fair bit of jazzy inflections – and although the pace is usually somewhat slow-stepping, there's definitely a groove in place on all these tracks! Titles include "Je Suis En Amour" by Diane Tell, "Rio Sinal Verde" by Junior Mendes, "Got To Be Lovin You" by Erik Tagg, "Peppermint Park" by Paul Hart, "Space Lady" by Ulla, "In Alto Mare" by Loredana Berte, "Neon" by Placa Luminosa, and "Lihue" by Nohelani Cypriano.

VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 3 – 1970 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99 31.98
1970 was a crucial year for country-tinged rock in the US – a time when the style really came into its own, and both found strong support in the mainstream, and an approach that was hardly just a straight rehasing of its roots! This third volume may well be the best so far in this excellent series – as it showcases a range of key artists who drew strongly on the sounds of Nashville and Bakersfield, but really found ways to make those influences their own – expressing a country aesthetic in the younger voice of the time, at a level that would then go back and influence mainstream country in years to come! As with the other volumes, the package is beautiful – a nice heavy book, filled with thoughtful notes on the tracks – and a total of 38 cuts that include "Tell Me A Song" by Morning, "Silver Moon" by Mike Nesmith & The First National Band, "Hurry Up" by Poco, "Delta Mama Blues" by Townes Van Zant, "He Darked The Sun" by Linda Ronstadt, "God's Own Singer" by Flying Burrito Brothers, "Big Bayou" by Swampwater, "Tobacco Road" by David Allan Coe, "Be Real" by Doug Sahm, "Livin In The Country" by Country, "Just A Country Dream" by Eric Anderson, "California" by Rick Nelson, "Right Before My Eyes" by Moby Grape, and "Biloxi" by Jesse Winchester.

✨✧ Ned DohenyHard Candy ... CD
Asylum/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About July 27, 2016
A seminal set from Ned Doheny – a lasting bit of California cool from the 70s, and a record that's every bit as refreshing as its image on the cover! The sound is tight, but never too slick – well-crafted songwriting with equally well-crafted production and studio execution – but somehow in a space that's far from the charts, too – which makes the whole thing a really great discovery in music! Ned Doheny's got a way of hitting an AOR vibe, but holding onto more personal elements too – and the vocals glide along with the music with the same charming vibe we'd find in a vintage Chris Rainbow record. Titles include "Get It Up For Love", "Each Time You Pray", "When Love Hangs In The Balance", "A Love Of Your Own", "On The Swingshift", "Sing To Me", and "If You Should Fall". CD

VariousBay Area Rockers – San Francisco Rockabilly & Rock N Roll 1957 to 1960 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016
Regional rock & roll stormers from the late 50s Bay Area scene – a big collection tunes done in a driving, uptempo mode! The Bay Area of the time isn't really known as a wellspring of early rock – as the California scene was capably dominated by jazz and even hillbilly artists in the 50s – making this hoppin' set all the more appealing! Loads of uptempo r&b and rockabilly inspired tunes: "Cave Man Hop" by Jerry Coulston, "Lobo Jones" by Jackie Gotroe, "Rowena" by Pat La Rocca, "Applesauce" by The Jades, "Rockin' Merry" by the Treys, "Move, Baby, Move" by Al & Nettie, "Rock It Up To The Moon" by Jackie Gotroe, "Big Fat Woman" by Bobby Freeman, "Satisfied" by the MacMillin Brothers and more!

VariousElemental Instrumentals – Raw Primitive Instrumental Rock From Cuca Records Of Wisconsin 1959 to 1965 ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... About April 1, 2016 (delayed)
Searing instrumentals from the legendary Wisconsin-based Cuca label – one of the coolest indies of the 60s! Although Cuca was working out of tiny Sauk City in the dairy state, the company had an ear for a groove that matched the better known imprints of the west coast scene – and managed to record a heck of a lot of great local groups with a heavy guitar-based groove! Forget any thoughts you may have of California or the Northwest 60s scenes as the only true bastions of rocking guitar instrumentals – because this CD more than gives the Midwest its due, and serves up 28 smoking tracks that are also supported by some great notes on Cuca. Titles include "Scalping Party" by The Tornados, "Wasted" by The Zakons, "Spin Out" by Teen's Men, "Side Winder" by Vibratones, "This Way Out" by The Furys, "Rock Casual" by The Stagemen, "The Voodoo Walk" by The Voodoos, "Cyclone" by The Nocturnes, "Rotation" by Six Shooters, "Rewind" by Grind Prix's, "War Party" by The Catalinas, and "Hades" by Frank Gay & The Gayblades.

VariousIt Came From The Suburbs – Rare Teen Rock From The Kennedy Era ... CD
Downey/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016
A motherlode of pre-British Invasion rock and roll from the Southern California scene of the early 60s – all of it taken from the vaults of the tiny Downey Records label! The set is a vocal counterpart to the Intoxica collection that featured instrumental work from Downey – and like that previous collection, the tunes here are in a variety of styles – from hard searing rock, to sweeter pop, to some great R&B styled tracks as well! Ace have done a great job of resurrecting this near-lost label – and the booklet here features a wealth of notes, photos, and information on the company and artists from the time – alongside a set list that features 27 tunes, some previously unissued – with titles that include "Richard's Bounce" by The Pastel Six, "Astro Romeo" by Johnny MacRae, "Oh It Hurts" by The Karols, "Purty Baby" by Mickey Bowman, "Jay Walkin" by Paul Clifton, "Thump De Dum Dum" by Ernie Baptiste, "Laura" by The Debonaires, "Understanding" by Jessie Hill, "Joe Cool" by Jimmy Hombs, "The Dragon" by Zane Ashton, "Bwana" by Johny MacRae, "Nellie" by The Invictas, and "Yea Yea Yea" by Joe Maniscalco.

✨✧ Beau BrummelsTriangle/Bradley's Barn ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1967/1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from The Beau Brummels – two albums that no fan of underground 60s rock should be without! First up is Triangle – a tremendous album from The Beau Brummels – one of the lesser-remembered groups from the late 60s Warner hipster heyday! At some level, the group's a folk-rock outfit – with the left-of-center feel of some of Fred Neil's best work for Capitol, and a similar blend of east coast honesty and west coast mind expansion. The format here is remarkably simple, but handled with some nice touches by producer Lenny Waronker, who really brings a lot more out of the band than on their earlier indie recordings. Titles include "Are You Happy", "The Wolf Of Velvet Fortune", "The Keeper Of Time", "Only Dreaming Now", "Magic Hollow", "Painter Of Women", and "Triangle". Bradley's Barn is a crucial album in the sound of late 60s Warner – recorded by west coasters The Beau Brummels in the heart of Tennessee, at the legendary studios of country producer Owen Bradley! This meeting of west and country is fantastic – a really incredible extension of earlier folksy rock styles forged by Dylan, Fred Neil, Tim Buckley, and others – handled with incredible care, and a style that's equally honest and ironic – but coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – one of those rare few albums that somehow draws from a wealth of inspiration, but manages to make something completely standout in the process – almost a Feelies/Good Earth for its own generation! Tremendous stuff – and titles include "Jessica", "Bless You California", "I'm A Sleeper", "Little Bird", "Turn Around", and "An Added Attraction". CD

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a cool little set – one that begins with obscure country songs about drug use, then moves onto a whole host of songs with themes of suicide, insanity, damnation, and redemption! The music is every bit as great as you'd guess from the title and cover – and the folks at Omni, who already do an amazing job with obscure country reissues, really knock it out of the park with this one – by pulling together two decades' worth of unusual tracks from the indie underground – all supported by great notes as well. The package is a heady journey through the underbelly of country – sounds you'd never hear on the charts – and titles include "Suicide" by Louie Innis, "Satan's Chauffeur" by Jimmy Minor, "Marijuana The Devil Flower" by Johnny Price, "LSD" by Wendell Austin, "The Needle" by Harry Snyder, "California Hippie Murders" by Red River Dave, "Demon Of Jealousy" by Jesse Bruce, "The Devil Was Laughing At Me" by Jimmy Newman, "Psycho" by Eddie Noack, "Hell Train" by Billy Strange, "Race With The Devil" by Johnny David, and "Fourteen Stories Down" by Don Bailey.

✨✧ VariousIntoxica! – Strange & Sleazy Instrumental Sounds From The SoCal Suburbs ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smoking instrumentals from the California scene of the early 60s – tracks that nicely bridge the space between surf guitar, R&B, and exotica – served up with plenty of sax, organ, and searing guitar! Most of the work here came from the studios of tiny Downey Records – done in a rough-edged, garagey style that's simple, but extremely effective – and a really nice contrast to mainstream California instrumentals of the time. The groups vary throughout, but most of the tunes are linked with a shared production technique that uses heavy echo, straightforward performance, and the occasional spare added element to spice up the music – a really great sound that has plenty of dark edges! Titles include "Migrane" and "Eight Ball" by The Hustlers, "Blockade" and "Here Comes The Bug" by The Rumblers, "Intoxica" and "Comanche" by The Revels, "Space Battle" by Stories In Sound, "Water Wheel" by Chuck Higgins, "Here Comes The Sun" by The Rumblers, "Rosemary's Baby" by Ed Burkey, "Ghost Of Mary Meade (part 2)" by Little Caesar & The Ark Angels, A Week From Tuesday" by The Pastel Six, and "Theme Of Etiquette" by The Hindus.

Ty SegallEmotional Mugger ... CD
Drag City, 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 15.98
A grimy gem from the indefatigable Ty Segall! Backed by here by The Muggers – with frequent co-horts including Mikal Cronin and new collaborators Emmett Kelly (Cairo Gang), Dale Crover (Melvins) and others – it's got a tense, murky vibe quite unlike his earlier records! It's dense and dissonant, but has strong songcraft – with weird bits of keyboard that remind us of pre-WB Devo (as does the creepy baby mask on the cover...coincidence?) without burying the raw garagey rock at the core. Includes "Squealer", "Californian Hills", "Emotional Mugger/Leopard Priestess", "Breakfast Eggs", "Diversion", "Baby Big Man (I Want A Mommy)", "Mandy Cream", "Candy Sam", "Squeler Two". "WUOTWS" and "The Magazine". CD
