✨✧ 8th Wonders Of The World8th Wonders Of The World (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sundazed/Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
These guys may not exactly be the 8th Wonder Of The World – but they're a pretty darn great 60s group nonetheless, and one who are finally getting their due with this well-done full length collection! The quartet emerged on the New York scene at a time when new musical modes were really opening up – echoes of The Beatles coming into play with some of the rawer garage elements cooked up on the west coast – touched maybe with a bit of nascent psych, all at a level that never saw full fruition at the time, given that the Vietnam war got in the way of the group's ability to work together! The set only features two records that were issued at the time – one on the Uptite label, the other on Coed – alongside some even more wonderful unissued material that really shows the group moving into very trippy territory of their own. Titles include "Summer Dreamin", "Must Have Your Love", "Give Me A Try", "Say Whaddaya Say", "Who Cares", "Must Have Your Love", "You You Yeah", "Susie Got The Word", and "Every Time I See You Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Little BitsGirl Give Me Love (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, 1967. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
The Little Bits are little kids, but don't hold that against them – as there's an intensity to this record that feels much more like some Texas psych of the time, and which hardly fits the sweeter image of the group on the cover! The quartet only issued one single back in the 60s – but now, they finally get their full due in this amazing batch of lost material – heavy on fuzzy bass, sinister keyboards, and some surprisingly gritty vocals – way different than anything we might have expected from the cover! Trust us, this set is great – as gritty and garagey as any of the older, long-haired cats from the time – with titles that include "Girl Give Me Love", "Corner Store", "Turn Around", "Evil On My Mind", "Houston To LA", "Do Wrong Lucy", "Spoofin", and "Clearwater Georgia".

✨✧ VandalsI Saw Her In A Mustang (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really cool group from mid 60s Florida – one who are every bit as garagey as the best groups in the Pacific Northwest, but also seem to have a great Southern California way of harmonizing their vocals! Most of the work here was never issued at the time – but the tracks work fantastically together as a full album – showing not just the group's great ear for their own sort of catchy, colorful tunes – but also a real love of The Beatles, who they cover here on a number of tracks – clearly a strong inspiration for their sound, although The Vandals really make things sound very different than the fab four! Titles include "We're The Vandals", "I Saw Her In A Mustang", "Alright", "The Night Before", "Charlie Brown", "Another Girl", "The Joker", "Lies", "Stop Get A Ticket", "I Need You", "Mystery", and "Do You Love Me".

WhateverValley Of Death (Or Whatever) (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, 1967. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Brilliant work from a Long Island group who are really known for just one famous single, but who also managed to cut a few other tracks at the time – all brought together here to make a long-overdue album for the group! "Valley Of Death" is the group's sole single – a great garage reworking of the poem "The Charge Of The Light Brigade", taken into really sinister territory – issued under the name of The Whatever, although the group also existed as The Raincoats and The Lookouts, both of who are featured here – alongside two very cool car dealership songs the group cut for Wolfinger Dodge! Titles include "The Valley Of Death", "More Than Fair", "Conscience", "Stranger", "No More Do I Dream", "You're Mine", "Away From You", and "Talking Out Of Turn" – plus two cool "Wolfinger Dodge" jingles, with surprisingly profane announcements!

✨✧ VariousGritty 60s Garage Rock & Punk – Special Assortment Multi-Purpose (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great little collection, and one that definitely delivers the grit promised in the title – served up here on an assortment of super-rare garage rock tracks from the glory days of the mid 60s – that moment when it seemed as if every spare space in America was filled with a local band rehearsing their guitar-driven dreams with a new sort of intensity! If you dig work by The Seeds, Standells, and other big names of the generation, you'll find plenty to love here – but served up by a host of great acts that we never would have discovered otherwise – brought to light by the efforts of the folks at Beat Rocket. The set even includes a young Jerry Mathers (of Leave It To Beaver fame) making a rare rock track – on "Happiness Is Havin" by Beaver & The Trappers – served up next to cuts that include "Makin Love" by The Sloths, "Crystalize Your Mind" by Living Children, "You're Bringing Me Down" by Trans Atlantic Train, "I'll Cry" by the Soul Owners, "Don't Be Surprised" by The Satyrs, and "I'll Get My Way" by The Chimney Sweeps.

VariousPotato Chip – Crunchy Dunwich Guitar (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dunwich/Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99 34.99
A deep deep dive into the legendary Dunwich label – the Chicago imprint that was home to a few big acts in the 60s, but also managed to record a heck of a lot of great music that never fully got its due! If you know the Dunwich sound, it's a raw, garagey approach to rock that often makes some of its material the sort of proto-punk rarities that were years ahead of their time – every bit as full of fuzz and freak as some of the headiest work in Texas and Detroit during the same underground generation – although often a lot more obscure! The double-length set is overflowing with greatness – 36 titles that include "If You're Ready" by The Pride & Joy, "Project Blue" by The Banshees, "Everytime" by The Del-Vetts, "Quit Your Lowdown Ways" by George Edwards & Friends, "Lonely I" by The Warner Brothers, "I'm Not Talkin" by Things To Come, "She" by The Rovin Kind, "You Don't Know Better" by Saturday's Children, "Stand Tall" by The Luv'd Ones, "Ungle Wiggly's Airship" by The Shadows Of Knight, "You Don't Know Like I Know" by The Mauds, and "Same Old Thing" by The Light Nights" – plus a potato chip radio ad by the Shadows Of Knight, and an electric company ad by Saturday's Children.

✨✧ VariousCountdown To Soul – 17 Brilliant Soul Funk Jazz & Folk Rare Grooves ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
No need to count down to soul – because it's already here, and served up in a stunning array of rare tracks from the 60s and 70s! We've always loved the Tramp label for their superb take on classic funk – they've been funky 45 specialists right from the start – but this time around, they turn their mighty ears towards the deep underground of indie soul singles – and serve up some really unique cuts that we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a great sense of variety here – there's definitely a few funky cuts, but there's also some deep ballads, some sweet harmony moments, and even some unusual cuts that seem to have a style that's completely onto themselves – which furthers the sense of discovery in the set. We've heard a few of these before, but may are quite new to our ears – and titles include "Do Dat Stuf" by Spangle, "Lovin" by Holly Carroll, "Major Funky" by Ulysses Crockett, "I Don't Know Yet" by Don Patterson, "People Wake Up Before It Is Too Late" by The Chances, "How Tough It Was" by Jackie Johnson's Backbeaters, "Tell It Like It Is" by Rita MacNeil, "Sound Of The Wind" by John Brown, "Superjock" by Reuben Bell, "Here Tis" by Spider Martin, "Do The Airplane" by Mel Production Band, and "Silver Dollar Lady" by International Boogie Band.
