✨✧ KoobasKoobas (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from The Koobas – a group who tried very hard and made some excellent records in the late 60s – only to see this set come out after the group had thrown in the towel! Don't let that stop your ears from digging in deep, though – as the whole thing's a subtle masterpiece from a time when so many other things were going on – a record that's got its own sort of logic that's completely charming – neither garage or psych, but with the wit and sharpness of both – set to these fantastic vocals from Keith Ellis, a singer whose bite would also hit big with Juicy Luicy, but who somehow sounds more sinister here. It's hard to sum up the charms of the record in a few short words, but they're definitely there the moment you first give the record a listen – smart songs, creative production, and lots of twists and turns that really keep things interesting – on titles that include "Here's A Day", "Constantly Changing", "Barricades", "Royston Rose", "Gold Leaf Tree", and "Mr Claire". CD features bonus tracks too – "Face", "Champagne & Caviar", "Sweet Music", "First Cut Is The Deepest", "Gypsy Fred", "Sally", and "Walking Out". CD

✨✧ VariousSlight Disturbance In My Mind – The British Proto-Psychedelic Sounds Of 1966 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1966. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from a real turning point in British music – a moment when the mod groups and singers of the year before were letting in a bit more freak and fuzz – yet all in ways that still kept the songs as short, tight, and tuneful as before! You might consider this work the big bang that set up a whole second generation of genius in the UK – the catchy sort of 45s that paved the way for longer jams on albums, progressive rock experimentation, mindbending psych, and even the hard rock modes that were just around the corner. You'll recognize a few of the names here as mid 60s mod heroes, but they're also mixed with some great lesser-knowns, all with the kind of deep dig that we love from these box sets on the Grapefruit label – right down to the massive booklet of notes that offers up track by track information on all the music. 84 tracks in all – with work by The Rockin Vickers, Yardbirds, Wimple Winch, John's Children, The Action, The Koobas, Fleur De Lys, The Favourite Sons, Keith Relf, The People, David Bowie, The Smoke, The Creation, Graham Bond Organization, Downliners Sect, The 5am Event, The Tomcats, The Majority, The In Crowd, Just Five, The Times, The Uglys, Outrage, and lots lots more!
