✨✧ FlysToday Belongs To Me – The Complete Recordings 1977 to 1980 (Wikiki Beach Refugees/Own/bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Two full albums from the overlooked Flys – plus a huge amount of bonus tracks too – finally restoring the group's lost musical legacy to all of its late 70s glory! The Flys hail from the UK scene of the late 70s – and recorded in the punk generation, but with a style that's maybe a bit earlier than that – kind of a touch of psych influence, filtered through leaner late 70s, but all with the punch of a power pop record too – a blend that maybe never got the group the attention they deserved at the time, but which really sounds fantastic here! The records are filled with catchy songs that really have an edge – kind of like early Rough Trade singles, or the more tuneful Television songs – and the 2CD set features all the tracks from the albums Waikiki Beach Refugees and Own – plus 27 more bonus tracks! Titles include "Energy Boy", "Fascinate Me", "Looking For New Hearts", "We Don't Mind The Rave", "Beverly", "Through The Windscreen", "Cheap Days", "I Don't Know", "Fun City", "Can I Crash Here", "Love & A Molotov Cocktail", "Program", "Come On Stupid", "Down Your End Of The Phone", "Fly V Fly", "Name Dropping", and lots lots more.

Nucleus & Ian CarrTorrid Zone – The Vertigo Recordings 1970 to 1975 (Elastic Rock/We'll Talk About It/Solar Plexus/Belladonna/Labyrinth/Roots/Under The Sun/Snakehips/Alley Cat) (6CD set) ... CD
Vertigo/Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $42.99
Seminal sounds from trumpeter Ian Carr and his Nucleus group of the early 70s – maybe one of the few jazz rock groups that was ever able to work with a fair bit of jazz in their sound! Unlike his contemporaries, who often started in rock first, then added some horns – Carr was already coming off an important 60s legacy, co-leading a group with tenorist Don Rendell – so the vibe here is like an extension of that very rhythmic, very tonal modern work – but with the addition of electrified instrumentation – thanks to the guitar work of Chris Spedding and keyboards of Karl Jenkins – who plays some fantastic electric lines throughout! The vibe is maybe a bit in the territory of early 70s electric work by Miles Davis and Donald Byrd (pre-Mizell for the latter) – but there's maybe a farther-reaching concept at play on many of the records, at a level that always helped the group cross over to the prog crowd, and move beyond just a straight jazz audience. Other key players include Brian Smith on tenor and soprano saxes – a really fantastic part of the lineup – plus Jeff Clyne on bass and John Marshall on drums – and as the albums move along a bit, the lineup shifts slightly, and also opens up to guests who include Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Tony Levin on drums, and Norma Winstone on voice. And although some of the albums have been reissued before, this is the first set to really dive in completely – and bring together material from the Vertigo Records releases that include Elastic Rock, We'll Talk About It Later, Solar Plexus, Belladonna, Labyrinth, Roots, Under The Sun, Snakehips Etcetera, and Alley Cat.

PrimitivesBloom – The Full Story 1985 to 1992 (Lazy Years/Lovely/Pure/Galore/bonus tracks/BBC Sessions) (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 5CD ... $32.99
The complete run of music by The Primitives – their early singles, ful albums, and lots of bonus material – plus BBC sessions too! CD1 features The Lazy Years – early work from The Primitives – a selection of tracks from early singles they recorded for the Lazy label, before moving onto even bigger fame at a major label! We've always liked this work by the group the best – as it's nice and raw, with a good mix of muddy production, guitar fuzz, and darkly echoey vocals – very much a product of the same Creation Records influences that gave the world Jesus & Mary Chain. Titles include "She Don't Need You", "Thru The Flowers", "Where The Wind Blows", "Stop Killing Me", "Buzz Buzz Buzz", "Everything's Shining Bright", "Shadow", "Across My Shoulder", and "She Don't Need You". CDs 2, 3, and 4 feature the full albums Lovely, Pure, and Galore – all with lots of bonus tracks – and CD5 features 26 more tracks from BBC sessions recorded during the early Lazy Years, 1986 and 1987. Box set features a massive 118 tracks in all, a few previously unreleased! CD

ShoesElektrafied – The Elektra Years 1979 to 1982 (Present Tense/Tongue Twister/Boomerang/rarities) (4CD set) ... CD
Elektra/Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99
Three classic albums from Shoes, plus bonus tracks, and a full CD worth of rare material too! First up is Present Tense – a power-pop classic from Shoes – their first full length for Elektra Records, and a set that stands with all the best end of 70s gems from either coast! The songs are impeccable, and the group do a fantastic job of blending sharper guitars with really great lyricism – a mode that maybe makes the Illinois group a strong precursor for territory that The Replacements wouldn't hit until many years later – and which makes just about every track on the album a precious nugget that just gets better and better with time! Titles include "Now & Then", "Every Girl", "I Don't Wanna Hear It", "Three Times", "In My Arms Again", and "Too Late". On Tongue Twister, Shoes continue the brilliance of their first album for Elektra – serving up the kind of music that was so well-done, so subtle, it was maybe missed by most of the world at the time – even though it's gone onto the status of classic, thanks to legions of fans and critics! Shoes have a way with a tune that's unlike anyone else – maybe that compressed charm of Big Star, but fused into the sharper modes of the power pop years – but without any of the too commercial modes of some of the bigger groups of the time. Instead, the whole thing feels like you've just stumbled upon a brilliant band, playing in a backroom bar – which, unfortunately, is how Shoes spent too much of their career. Titles include "Only In My Sleep", "She Satisfies", "Found A Girl", "Hate To Run", "When It Hits", "Yes Or No", "Your Imagination", and "Girls Of Today". On Boomerang, Shoes maybe look a bit too new wave on the cover, but still sound perfect within – very much in charge of that perfect yet understated approach to a tune that has gone on to make them legends in all the many years since this album was released! The group were never out to change the world, and maybe that held them back at the time – but they were also never trying for big chart success, or too-slick modes – and there's a wonderfully honest, down to earth approach to the songwriting and production that clearly sets the stage for all the bigger late 80s groups that would follow in their wake. Nearly every tune is a completely catchy mofo – and titles include "Curiosity", "In Her Shadow", "Double Talk", "The Summer Rain", "Under The Gun", "The Tube", and "What Love Means". 4CD set features a huge amount of bonus material – 8 track demo versions of all three albums, added to their discs – and a bonus CD of 18 more rare tracks – all in a box, with a big booklet of notes!

✨✧ VariousCold Waves Of Color – Cold Wave, Electronic Synth Pop & Minimal Tracks From The Color Tapes Archive 1981 to 1985 ... CD
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare sounds from the UK underground of the mid 80s – work from a post-post-punk period that's come to be known as the cold wave – when electronic musicians who weren't sucked into the pop mainstream went deeper down and created some really wonderful sounds on their own! Most of the tracks here were only ever issued on cassette – which makes them even more lost to the sands of time than vinyl from the period – and the music has a rich blend of different analogue electronic modes that takes us from the moodier sounds of early Sheffield and Manchester to some of the warmer work of the Rough Trade or Cherry Red scenes. A few cuts here are appearing for the first time ever – and titles include "Don't Surrender" by WeR7, "Age Of Lights (inst)" by Modern Art, "Pigst Cafe" by Mystery Plane, "Space Is The Bass" by The Lord, "Beyond Reason Beyond Time" by Disintegrators, "Lives Of Angels" by Lives Of Angel, and "Tease" by Berserk In A Hayfield.

VariousMiniatures 1 & 2 – A Sequence Of Tiny Masterpieces ... CD
Pipe/Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy 2CDs ... $12.99
A great 2CD set – one that brings together two rare installments of this Miniatures series of music, collage, and sound art! First up is the 1979 edition – a really fantastic little record – and one that has a concept that's unlike anything else we can think of! Morgan Fisher presents 51 different "miniatures" – songs that are a minute or less, all stacked up to make a record that's somewhere between the DIY post-punk spirit of the Rough Trade years, and some of the more offbeat, avant work of the electronic/musique concrete generation! The mix of artists is fantastic, and the brevity of the songs means that if there's something you don't like, you'll quickly be in the company of the next song – and Fisher should not only be hailed for the way that he put the whole thing together, but also for the amazing selection of artists – a lineup that includes Kevin Coyne, David Bedford, Fred Frith, Robert Wyatt, John Otway, Quentin Crisp, Michael Nyman, Pete Seeger, David Cunningham, Ron Geesin, Robert Fripp, George Melly, Steve Miller, Lol Coxhill, Neil Innes, Maggie Nicols, Andy Partridge, Stinky Winkles, and many others! CD2 features the installment from the year 2000 – with 61 more pieces, done in a similar spirit, but with a shift in technology – in a lineup that includes contributions from Gavin Bryars, Jan Campion, Robert Fripp, Dissidenten, David Cunningham, Chris Butler, John Paul Jones, Ottmar Liebert, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Trans Global Underground, Jane Siberry, Terry Riley, Hermeto Pascoal, Linton Kwesi Johnson, and many others!

✨✧ VariousWarner Pop Rock Nuggets Volume 11 – Never Let Her Go ... CD
Warner (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This great Japanese series moves farther into the 70s than before – and brings together a great array of pop rock nuggets from the mighty Warner Brothers vaults! The music is partly soft rock of the post Sunshine years, but also shares other sweet 70s modes – maybe a pre-AOR sort of vibe, when tuneful songs could be well-produced, but still sound relatively personal presented here by artists with a surprising mix of original styles. There's a few giant hits here, but they're mixed with lots of overlooked 70s pop gems – in a lineup of 21 tracks that include "Let There Be Music" by Orleans, "Motorcycle Mama" by Sailcat, "Please Sent Me Someone To Love" by Paul Butterfield's Better Days, "We May Never Pass This Way Again" by Seals & Crofts, "One Woman Man" by The Ides Of March, "Tighter Tighter" by Alive & Kicking, "Popsicle Toes" by Michael Franks, "I Don't Wanna Go" by Bruce Roberts, "Love Is The Answer" by England Dan & John Ford Coley, "Never Let Her Go" by David Gates, "Cherry Pie" by The Hagers, and the surprising "Five Years On" by Laverne & Shirley.

✨✧ David BowieI'm Only Dancing (Soul Tour 74) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Parlophone, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from David Bowie – a live set that features material from a 1974 tour – done at a time when Bowie was very much in love with the sound of Philly soul! The material is a great presentation of the same modes that David explored at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia on the Young Americans album – and the group on stage has a lot of similar elements – including backing vocals from Luther Vandross and Ava Cherry, and players who include Carlos Alomar on rhythm guitar, Earl Slick on lead guitar, and David Sanborn on alto sax. Some of the material is from the Young Americans album, and other tracks from earlier years are nicely reworked with a Philly soul groove – in an extended set list that includes "Love Me Do/The Jean Genie", "Can You Hear Me", "It's Gonna Be Me", "Panic In Detroit", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", "Rebel Rebel", "Sorrow", "Changes", "1984", "Knock On Wood", "Moonage Daydream", and a long medley of older soul tracks mixed with "Diamond Dogs".

CreationPsychedelic Rose (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cherry Red/Demon (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A later effort from The Creation – that fantastic UK mod psych group from the 60s who never full got their due – but whose influence was felt strongly for generations to come! This late 80s set is a great example of that – as group members Eddie Phillips and Kenny Pickett work on lean songs that really recall the charms of The Creation at their best – done for a whole new generation of listeners and labels inspired by their groundbreaking 60s material, at a level that reminds us that sometimes the originators do it best! Titles include a remake of "Making Time" – plus "Lay The Ghost", "Psychedelic Rose", "United", "Radio Beautiful", "Spirit Called Love", and "White Night". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fall1982 (Hex Enduction Hour/Room To Live/In A Hole/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing package – three great albums by The Fall, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Hex Enduction Hour – one of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The jagged lyricism of Mark E Smith is razor-sharp – as is the instrumentation, which is heavy on that trademark noisy guitar from Craig Scanlon, weird keyboards from Marc Riley, and the driving power of the double drummers in the group! The music is every bit as textually explosive as the words on the cover – and titles include "Who Makes The Nazis", "And This Day", "Jawbone & The Air Rifle", "The Classical", "Mere Psued Mag Ed", "Fortress/Deer Park", and the classic "Hip Priest". Is Room To Live the greatest album ever by the Fall? We're always tempted to say so – because there's something here so perfect, so focused, it's hard to think of a better album to illustrate the genius of Mark E Smith! The rhythms are weirder, the lyrics more poetic, and the guitars a bit more razor sharp than before – yet the record's also not going as easily for the catchy hooks and clever turns of phrase that would take a bit of steam out of the whole Fall sound in years to come. Darkness, but delivered with a smirk – and a record that still brings us limitless joy today! Titles include "Joker Hysterical Face", "Hard Life In The Country", "Marquis Cha Cha", "Room To Live", "Papal Visit", and "Solicitor In Studio". In A Hole is a fantastic double-length live album by The Fall – recorded at a time when the group was at the height of their creative powers! Tracks are pulled from their important early albums and singles, and delivered with a searing intensity that shows just how much the group could hang on to their jagged edge and razor-sharp wit in front of a live audience – especially one on the other side of the globe! Titles include "The Container Drivers", "Fantastic Life", "English Scheme", "Impression Of J Temperance", "Room To Live", "Hip Priest", "Marquis Cha Cha", "Backdrop", "Hard Life In The Country", "Who Makes The Nazis", "Gramme Friday", "Slags Slates Etc", and "Look Know". Box set features a bonus CD with Sessions, Singles, and Soundchecks – including material from live sets in Leeds, Manchester, and London, plus John Peel material from 1981. And another bonus CD with a full live set recorded in Melbourne, in 1982 – 14 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Hot ChocolateRemixes & Rarities (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Pop (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful collection of work from the legendary Hot Chocolate – one of the greatest British pop bands of the 70s – and one with a unique sound that was equal parts rock, funk, and soul! Lead singer Erroll Brown is pictured on the cover – and his unique vocal approach is what really makes most of these songs so great – especially matched with the group's talent for a snapping midtempo rhythm, and fuzzy guitar that seems to be a funky evolution from the glam generation! This set's kind of a "better than best of" – in that it's full of hits from the group, but often in these varied mixes, some of which were done a decade after the recording – as a way of keeping the group's legacy going strong over in the UK – mixed with some other lesser-known tracks that are really great too. 3CD set features 36 tracks in all – with songs that include "So You Win Again", "West End Of Park Lane", "The Girl Is A Fox", "I've Got You On My Mind", "Gimme Some Of Your Lovin", "Bed Games", "It's My Birthday", "Night To Remember", and "Robot Love" – plus remixes/alternates that include "Every 1's A Winner (12" version)", "Going Through The Motions (12" version)", "Mindless Boogie (ext version)", "You'll Never Be So Wrong (12" mix)", "Every 1's a Winner (ext groove mix)", "Heartache No 9 (ext rmx)", "You Sexy Thing (ext replay mix)", "No Doubt About It (tequila mix)", "You Sexy Thing (winner 12" mix", "Are You Getting Enough Happiness (12" promo)", "You Sexy Thing (Ben Liebrand rmx)", "Heaven Is In The Backseat Of My Cadillac (DD convertible mix)", and even a long "Megamix" of hits!

✨✧ John RenbournUnpentangled – The Sixties Albums (There You Go/John Renbourn/Bert & John/Another Monday/Watch The Stars/Sir John A Lot Of/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Transatlantic/Cherry Tree (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of greatness from British folk rock legend John Renbourn – all of his late 60s solo work, done before moving on to greater fame in Pentangle! First up is There You Go – a rare one from singer Dorris Henderson and future Pentangle founder John Rensbourn! Florida born, LA raised singer Dorris Henderson moved to London in 1965 and was soon singing London's folk clubs, where she met Rensbourn. A solid mix of traditionals and then contemporary folk songs – stripped down and honest takes on "Saly Free And Easy", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Mr Tamborine Man", "Going To Memphis", Something Lonesome", "Mist On The Mountain" and more. This edition includes bonus tracks from a rare 45 – "Hangman" and "Leaves That Are Green". Next is the self-titled John Renbourn from 1965 – a set that would not only establish John's legacy for years to come, but also have a very strong impact upon the role of the guitar on the British scene too! The album's definitely in a mode that owes something to an American folk legacy – but it also really breaks from the past with unusual phrasings and colorings in Renbourn's guitar – certainly with an ear towards ancient English modes, but also at once very fresh and contemporary – a strong precursor to the waves of new acoustic talents that would flow from the UK a few years later, but maybe even more revolutionary – given that John's mostly just working here with his guitar and voice. Bert Jansch adds guitar to a few tracks – and titles include "Song", "Down On The Barge", "Plainsong", "Judy", "Beth's Blues", "Blue Bones", "Train Tune", "Winter Is Gone", and "Noah & Rabbit". Bert & John is a hell of a collaboration between British legends Bert Jansch and John Renbourn – both working here together to completely redefine the sound of their music for the generation to come! This one album may well hold all the sense of subtle power and possibility that was about to flower in the Brit movement often known as "acid folk" – that reworking of older aesthetics with modern conceptions, and doing so mostly with their work on acoustic guitar – quite a feat, given the stripped-down instrumentation of the set! Bert sings a bit – in that incredible style of his – but the real attraction here is the guitar interplay, which is always fresh, never hokey, neither familiar American folk nor forced singer-songwriter backup material. Titles include a wonderful reworking of Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" – plus "Red's Favourite", "Orlando", "Soho", "Piano Tune", "East Wind", "After The Dance", and "The Time Has Come". Another Monday is maybe the most obscure album in the collection – a set that is mostly instrumental, with some completely fantastic work by Renbourn on guitar – but which also features a bit of guest vocals from singer Jacqui McShee – whose warmer presence next to John really makes for a nice pairing. The album's as powerful as it is subtle, really beautiful in its sense of variety – with titles that include "Buffalo", "One For William", "Lost Lover Blues", "Another Monday", "Day At The Seaside", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", and "Waltz". Watch The Stars is another great collaboration with Dorris Henderson – an American singer, but one who moved to London in the 60s – where she cut this rare gem with guitarist John Renbourn! The album's got a righteous vibe that's hipper than the usual folk set – with some traditional tunes and some contemporary material – recorded with that amazing phrasing that made Renbourn's guitar so distinct right from the start, with lots of those jazzy currents we love so much – and which really fit the creative vocal approach of Henderson! Dorris also plays some autoharp, and there's a bit of bass in the backings – although overall the main focus here is on Renbourn's guitar and Henderson's vocals. Titles include "Come Up Horsey", "God Bless The Child", "Watch The Stars", "30 Days In Jail", "Mosaic Patterns", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", and "There's Anger In This Land". Sir John A Lot Of is perhaps one of the best-known albums from British guitar legend John Renbourn – as it was issued widely in the US, and kept in print for a surprisingly long time over the years! The approach here is slightly different than Renbourn's previous records – a bit in the image presented by the cover, although with maybe not as slavish a sound – as John just uses the whole thing to go a bit more ancient than before, in ways that echo the time travel that the whole British folk scene was taking as the 70s approached. The tunes are done in ways that are really beautiful – still lots of the incredible guitar work that made Renbourn such a standout on the scene – plus flute from jazzman Ray Warleigh, who's very different here than usual – and spare use of finger cymbals, African drums, and glockenspiel by Terry Cox. Titles include "Morgana", "Transfusion", "The Trees They Do Grow High", "Sweet Potato", "Seven Up", and "White Fishes". 6CD box features all records in original artwork sleeves, with a booklet of notes – and bonus tracks that include "Message To Pretty", "The Waggoner's Lad", "Lucky Thirteen", "Blues Run The Game", "The Wildest Pig In Captivity (alt)", "Can't Keep From Crying", "Transfusion (alt)", and "The Leaves Are Green".

RunawaysQueens Of Noise ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $33.99
The second great album by Kim Fowley's pet Runaways – the album with Lita Ford, Joan Jett and the rest of the gals cloaked in fog and straddling polls on the cover – making them look like a cross between Mott The Hoople and the headliners at that seedy club by the airport! Like the debut, the Queens Of Noise album is total ear candy – and this one is actually probably even a little bit more consistent – and might rock a little harder, too. It's not quite as notorious without the illicit wallop of the group's debut single "Cherry Bomb" – but that's probably the only reason it's not as well remembered. They were still underage at this point, too, so the front-to-back innuendo still resonates! Buy this and the debut album, then take your Donna's CDs back to the mall! Tracks include "Queens Of Noise", "Take It Or Leave It", "Midnight Music", "Born To Be Bad", "Neon Angels On The Road To Ruin", "I Love Playing With Fire", "California Paradise", "Hollywood", "Heartbeat", and "Johnny Guitar".

SecretsInfatuation – Singles & Demos 1966 to 1968 ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Great early work from The Secrets – a UK group that features early contributions from later singer/songwriter Clifford T Ward – but in a style that's much more group-oriented overall! Ward's already a hell of a songwriter – and loads of the cuts here are under-discovered nuggets that sparkle at a level that only a rare few Brit records of this time can do – sweet, but never poppy – clever, but never too much so – and often with a heartfelt, emotional candor that we might link to the best by The Hollies and Zombies. And in fact, there's an instant charm here that definitely recalls Hollies at their best – a way of doing a heck of a lot with just a little, and really bringing forth special qualities in the tunes without resorting to overdone gimmicks or studio interference – although the production here is pretty darn groovy too. The collection features loads of singles from the group, plus rare demos and unreleased tracks – all with richly detailed notes in the best Cherry Red tradition. Titles include "Infatuation", "She's Dangerous", "Such a Pity", "I Suppose", "Sympathy", "I Think I Need The Cash", "The Gloria Bosom Show", "Looking Down The Glass", "The Same Applies To You", "Teacher", and "I Intend To Please".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $34.99 39.99
A massive overview of the best years of Krautrock – that fresh wave of new music that emerged on the West German scene at the end of the 60s, and carried the nation forward strongly all through the 70s! The set definitely begins at the beginning – as early cuts almost echo some of the blues rock that was bubbling up in the UK and US, before quickly moving into some of the modes that are more familiarly associated with Krautrock – including inspirations from jazz and improvised music, avant electronics, and freewheeling instrumentation that had a huge impact on many artists for decades to come! This 2CD set is done in the best Bear Family tradition – with a huge booklet of notes and images – although we should also say that the notes are in German, but still have enough helpful bits that you'll be able to get the gist when needed. 22 tracks in all – and titles include "Redskin" by Jane, "Souls Married To The Wind" by Parzival, "Cappuccino" by Abacus, "A Young Man's Gash (part 2)" by Gash, "La Leyla" by Ramses, "Chub Chub Cherry" by Silberbart, "Ants" by Tomorrow's Gift, "Rock N Roll Preacher" by Atlantis, "Keep On Running" by Cravinkle, "Mesentery" by Ikarus, "Schones Babylon" by AR & Machines, and "Big City" by Thirsty Moon.

✨✧ VariousMad Mike Monsters Vol 3 – A Tribute To Mad Mike Metrovich ... CD
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Magical music from the days when radio really mattered – an assortment of raw and raunchy singles all popularized by Pittsburgh DJ Mad Mike Metrovich in the 60s! Mad Mike had an ear that was unlike anyone else – a way of seeking out unusual tunes with a gritty edge – cuts that fell far from the charts, and included a rich array of garage, instrumental, and R&B-influenced styles! Even at the height of his popularity, Mike was dedicated to digging up little-heard singles – and would often work towards keeping them obscure by covering up the labels – a practice that was still yet to come in hip hop or Northern soul scenes. This amazing series does a great job of making Mike's music live again – combining rare singles with a few radio spots too – and packaging the whole thing will full notes on Mike, the Pittsburgh scene, and the rich array of record stores and radio stations that allowed music this great to exist! Titles on this third volume include "Firewater" by Premieres, "Strollie Bun" by Blonde Bomber, "Malanese" by Avalons, "Monkey Man" by Baby Huey & The Babysitters, "The Birds" by Motivations, "Oo Ma Liddi" by JJ Jackson & The Jackals, "Cotton" by Duvals, "Come On Back" by Big Syl Barnes, "Zebra" by Youngsters, "Done Done The Slop" by Ervin Rucker, "Cherry Juice" by Marino Choice, "The Hunch" by Mad Mike & The Maniacs, and "Uncle John" by Wild Child Gipson.
