VariousLost Legends Of Surf Guitar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99 34.98
A heck of a kickoff for a new series of surf guitar compilations on Sundazed – as it's one of best we've ever stocked! This is the real deal – a stellar assortment of raucous instrumental stormers that rippled through the regional scenes back in the day. It's underground surf-garage masterpieces with everything we love about the genre, but without the glossy pop cliches of the bigger budget copycats to come! Reverb-drenched guitars, rumbling rhythms, tense bits of organ, sax and more. Incredible! Includes "Loophole" by The Royal Coachmen, "Gear!" by Dave Myers And His Surftones, "The Breeze And I" by Steve And The Emperors, "The Rising Surf" by The Tandems, "Cemetery Stomp" by The Essex, "Ian Fleming Theme" by The Menn, "Exotic" by The Original Surfaris, "Banzai Washout" by The Catalinas, "Shootin' Beavers" by The Tornadoes, "Moondawg" by The Rhythm Rockers and more. 28 tracks on 2LPs – and all tracks in the original mono mixes!

Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $6.99
A second turn in the Movements series on the Perfect Toy label – some of the most blazingly funky 45s you'll hear – put together by the Tobias Kirmayer of Tramp Records! Once again we're floored by how great all of this stuff sounds – some of the deepest, tightest funk material we've ever heard – with snapping drums, perfectly timed horn blasts – and some hard psychedelic soul touches of organ and wailing vocals – while never falling short of unfailingly funky! 15 great tracks: "If It Feels Good" by Phil Flowers, "There's A Wrinkle In Our Time" by 1984, "Don't Chain My Soul" by Carlton Basco, "My Mind Set Me Free Pt 1" by House Guests, "Now Is The Time" by Sisters Love, "Southern Fried Chicken Pts 1 & 2" by Bill Thomas & The Fendells, "Warm Daddy's Choice" by River Front Band, "Bring Out Yourself" by Emperors Soul 69, "Bahama Soul Stew" by Funky Nassau, "Motherless Child" by Harmonica Paul, "Arabian Funk" by Ray Anthony and more!

✨✧ VariousDynamite Soul Harmony Vol 1 ... CD
Dynamite (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stellar set of rare vocal group soul! This is one of our favorite-ever compilations of sweet soul harmony tunes – and it's filled with wonderful rare singles from the late 60s and early 70s, tight little gems from that period where the harmony soul format was getting even more sophisticated than before, but had not yet hit the overproduced sound of the mid 70s chart years. Titles include "When I'm With You" by The Four Thoughts, "I'll Make A Vow" by The Crescents, "Just A Few Steps Up The Aisle" by Jato Von Dell, "You're My Desire" by The Four Mints, "You're All I Live For" by The Four Vibes, "Sad Girl" by Emperors Soul 69, "It's Not The End" by The Jet Set, "Borrow Til Morning" by The Compliments, "Step Into My World" by Magic Touch, and "Girl Of The Night" by Uptites. 23 tracks in all, and although the sources seem a bit dodgy, the sound's still better than our beat up 45s, and the track listing is a collector's dream! CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

✨✧ VariousLooking For My Baby! – Soul Treasures From The Vaults Of Amy-Mala-Bell ... CD
Sundazed, 1960s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Looking for my baby? Looking for rare soul is more like it! The 2CD set is a much-needed look at the wealth of soul material issued by the Amy, Mala, and Bell labels during the 60s! The related companies were unique – in that they were based in New York, but managed to cut a wide swath across the south – picking up excellent work from Memphis and New Orleans, as well as coming up with great soul from New York as well! The sound of the material on the set runs from rootsy deep soul to sweeter uptown material – and the wonderfully-done collection features a total of 50 tracks that really move past the more famous hits from the company. Titles include "Karate" by The Emperors, "Long Ago" by Ben & Spence, "Brushfire" by The Emotions, "My Elusive Dreams" by Moses & Josh Dillard, "Love Bug Got A Bear Hug" by Melvin Davis, "What Would It Take" by The Showmen, "C'Mon Cupid" by Roosevelt Grier, "I'm The One For You" by Sam Hutchins, "Unsatisfied" by Lou Johnson, "Could This Be Love" by Don & Juan, and "My Ship Is Comin In" by Jimmy Radcliffe. CD
