✨✧ 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 ... $14.99 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!

✨✧ SantanaSantana III ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the most searing, soaring albums ever from Santana – a set that takes all the power of the previous two records, and packs it into one tight little set! There's plenty of Latin influences going on – mixed with heavy fuzz from Carlos, and lots of jazz and funky touches too – way more happening on the rhythm tip than most of Santana's contemporaries – which is why the record continues to find such a wonderfully wide audience over the years. Drop cuts like "Batuka","Toussaint L'Overture", "Jungle Strut", or "Para Los Rumberos" next to tracks by War, Mandrill or Tower Of Power and you'll see what we mean – and titles also include "No One To Depend On","Taboo", "Guajira" and "Everything's Coming Our Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later US pressing in a barcode cover – PC 30595. Cover has some wear and aging.)

✨✧ VariousHorn Rock & Funky Guitar Grooves 1968 to 1974 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Funky sounds from a time when jazz and rock music instrumentation collided – and came up with a bastard child that was unfortunately named "jazz rock", and which kept some folks away from some surprisingly groovy records back in the day! Don't let that moniker get you down – as it's way more dated than the music on this set, and hardly gets at the soul-drenched style of the grooves – which often owe more to the horn sections of Memphis and Muscle Shoals records from earlier in the 60s, than they do from any higher attempt to merge the worlds of highbrow jazz and long-haired rock! In truth, most of these groups were probably raised on equal parts soul with all the other styles they were drinking up – and they probably also picked up a few members who got young training in school bands, then found a way to work with their guitar-playing friends – adding plenty of color and tone to the drums and bass that really drive the tunes. The set is a wonderful introduction to the genre – and not only mixes a few key classics with lots of overlooked gems – but also touches on some of the funkier nuggets that have been sampled over the years. Titles include "Toe Hold" by Al Kooper, "Run Back To Mama" by Chase, "Clown (part 1)" by The Flock, "One Fine Morning (LP version)" by Lighthouse, "It's Been A Long Time Coming" by Delaney & Bonnie, "Understanding" by Cold Blood, "Somebody Oughta Turn Your Head Around" by Crystal Mansion, "Tuane" by Hammer, "Roller Coaster" by Blood Sweat & Tears, "Clever Girl" by Tower Of Power, "Aunt Marie" by American Sound Ltd, "Gypsy Boy II" by Tobias Wood Henderson, "Blow Your Mind" by Donnie Brooks, "Boomp Boomp Chomp" by The Sons, and "Shoes" by Black Magic.

Legacy/MCA/Experience Hendrix, Late 60s. Used ... $4.99
Hard blues and soul loving material from Hendrix – the excellent South Saturn Delta compilation of rarities, alternate mixes and other bits from throughout Jimi's too short life and career! It's killer stuff that stands up today as well as any posthumous Hendrix release, really pulling together the breadth of stylistic range over the years. Includes "Look Over Yonder", "Here He Comes (Lover Man)", "South Saturn Delta", "Tax Free", "Midnight", "Drifter's Escape", "Midnight Lightning", "All Along The Watchtower", "Power Of Soul" and more.

✨✧ StandellsTry It ... LP
Tower, 1967. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
The last album that The Standells ever gave the world – and a masterful mix of all the sinister sounds that were brewing up on the LA scene of the time! We'd file this one right next to our favorite Kim Fowley records from the time (the really nasty ones!), or maybe the first two albums by Love – as the group work with references to other styles of the time, but really make the music completely their own through their mindblowingly great performance throughout. The record's not really garage, nor psych, nor blues-inspired rock, any other sort of common style – but all those elements, and more, are moving through the short, powerful songs on the set – often with this nihilistic vibe that seems to pave the way for The Stooges and others to come. Titles include "Try It" – a song of great controversy at the time – plus "Can't Help But Love You", "Trip To Paradise", "Barracuda", "Did You Ever Have That Feeling", "Poor Shell Of A Man", and "Riot On Sunset Strip". LP, Vinyl record album
