✨✧ 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!

✨✧ Korla PanditGrand Moghul Suite/Universal Language Of Music Vol 1 ... CD
El (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest early recordings from organist Korla Pandit – a key figure in the LA scene of the postwar years, thanks to numerous TV appearances, and some great records like these! The first half of the CD features Pandit's Grand Moghul Suite – an exotic performance of mostly solo organ, built around eastern themes and other exotic touches – all composed and played by Pandit himself with a really eerie sound! There's a few points when additional percussion bits come in alongside the organ – fleshing out the sound somewhat, and creating a further sense of majesty in the music – but all in ways that still sound incredibly other-worldly and spooky, and hardly like more conventional instrumental work of the time. Titles include "Trance Dance", "Magnetic Theme", "Kumar", "The Hypnotist", "Procession Of The Grand Moghul", "Theme Of The Meta-Ology", and "The Turkish Dance". The second half of the disc includes tracks from The Universal Language Of Music Vol 1 – a set with some very weird sounds on the organ, as Pandit plays a mix of familiar songs and original numbers. Most numbers are very slow and moody, and there's also some spoken passages over the top (possibly by The Continental?) – done in a poetic, almost romantic way, but still with enough exotic inflections to match Korla's music. Titles include "Clare De Lune", "The Banjello", "Stormy Weather", "Over The Rainbow", "Beyond The Sunset", and "Aicha's Dance". CD

✨✧ Gabor Szabo1969 ... CD
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Gabor Szabo's amazing late 60s albums for the Skye label – trippy, jazzy, and with a mod exotica vibe that would never be matched again! Gabor's playing guitar in a two-guitar frontline, which makes for lots of dreamy interplay between the strings – a shifting pattern of sound that's even more exotic than some of Szabo's earlier work on Impulse, thanks to added help from guitarist Francois Vaz. The rest of the group is great too – and features mighty Mike Melvoin on organ, plus fender bass, cello, and percussion – all produced by Gary McFarland with a wonderfully evocative feel! Titles include "Dear Prudence", "Stormy", "Walk Away Renee", "Michael From Mountains", "I've Just Seen A Face", and "You Won't See Me". CD
