Del-AiresZombie Stomp 1959 to 1963 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
A great blend of early rock and monster movie aesthetics from The Dynamic Del-Aires – a north New Jersey group who only cut a handful of singles, but also managed a key appearance in The Horror of Party Beach before fading away into obscurity! Despite that short time in the record racks, though – the group is totally great – a combo that almost blows away the best of the Northwest, and certainly has their same sort of raw, rocking, instrumental-heavy approach – although some numbers also feature some cool vocals too! This package brings together the rare singles, the movie tracks, and even some unissued live and demo tracks too – all in a beautiful-looking package with lots of photos of the group in action. Titles include "Drag", "So Far So Long", "Zombie Stomp", "The Crawl", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Berserk", "Treble Rock", "Sing Sing Sing", "Someplace Else", and even a "Horror Of Party Beach" movie trailer!

Flamin GrooviesTeenage Head ... LP
Kama Sutra/Norton, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Maybe the best-remembered album ever from the all-great Flaming Groovies – and a set with a classic cover image that really lives up to the music! The Groovies have an unusual blend of old school rocking with hipper post-60s sensibilities – almost their own faux-retro sound to rival some of the west coast modes from the Warner scene – but with a grittier NYC presentation that's really wonderful, and which made the record a key force in the pre-punk years! One of those true treasures that just keeps on giving over the years – a record of subtle brilliance that just gets better and better with each new listen. Titles include "High Flyin Baby", "City Lights", "Yesterday's Numbers", "Whiskey Woman", and "Evil Hearted Ada". LP, Vinyl record album

Kim Fowley & OthersTechnicolor Grease – Lost Treasures From The Vaults Vol 4 – 1959 to 1969 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
Maybe the coolest volume so far in this all-amazing series – a heady dip into the farther reaches of the Kim Fowley universe! This time around, Kim's only the performer on a few track – and most numbers are by obscure groups, both soul and rock – originally recorded by Fowley for a variety of different labels, but instantly lost to the shifting sands of time! The music is every bit as mad as some of Fowley's more famous productions – and in the best Norton Records way, there's a real focus here on offbeat tunes and very odd musical moments. Kim himself supervised the project, and wrote some excellent notes for the whole thing – and titles include "Moonlight In Vermont" by The Crenshaws, "In This World So Small" by Althea & The Memories, "Hello Schoolteacher" by Four After Fives, "Justine" by The Rangers, "People Let's Freak Out" by Belfast Gypsies, "The Story Of Susie" by Bill Woods, "Atlantis" by Blue Bells, "Vito & The Hands" by Vito & The Hands, and "Pop Art 66" by Kim Fowley himself!

Sun RaOuter Darkness – Space Poetry Vol 3 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
The third incredible chapter of lost Sun Ra material in the Space Poetry series – and a set that's a bit different than the first two! Side one of this record features two longer numbers – in contrast to the shorter poems on previous volumes – with Ra telling these cool little stories over music, "I Gotta Get Away" and "Know What It's Like On My Planet" – both richly illustrated not only by the backings, but also by his vivid narration – surprisingly dramatic at times, with a bad-rapping feel that's almost funky! Side two features two versions of "The Outer Darkness" – one with a repeated text by Wisteria, over weird electric backings – the other with June Tyson over even wilder electronics! Other tracks are from a 1977 on-air performance in Philly – very spiritual numbers that include "Black Holes In Space", "This Is My Day", "A Better World", and "The Scheme Of Words" – with Ra up front and lots of weird voices over organ in the back!

Sun Ra & OthersRocket Ship Rock ... LP
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99
Wild and wooly Rocket Ship Rock from Sun Ra and his Arkestra – featuring shout blues vocalist Yochanan – often billed as "the man from outer space" and a cat who could give Screamin Jay Hawkins a run for his money in the excitable oddball category – jumping 60s r&b with an interstellar theme, freaked out jazz, and unhinged genius from the Saturn vaults! Rocket Ship Rock features material that's the next stratospheric step from the early doo wop era recordings, with Yochanan coming unhinged without ever jettisoning his considerable charisma, on most of the numbers – including rare Saturn tracks, unissued and alternate and rehearsal takes – plus rare numbers other vocalists including Little Mack, Lacy Gibson and Ebah (both from the later 60s when Ra was going crazy for the Batman themes) and Don "Dino" Dean. Amazing spacey 60s soul & r&b with a wild eyed grit and the Arkestra in it's nicely gritty realm of the cosmos. Very well packaged by the folks at Norton, with nice liner notes, too. Titles include "Muck Muck", "Hot Skillet Momma", "Rocket Ship Rock", "The Sun Man Speaks", "Message To Earth Man" (#s 1& 2) with Yochanan, plus "Tell Her To Come On Home" feat Little Mack, "I Am Gonna Unmask The Batman" feat Lacy Gibson and an unissued version with Ebah, plus "Space Stroll" featuring Don "Dino" Dean.

VariousSouvenirs Of The Soul Clap Vol 2 – Jonathan Toubin's New York Night Train ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $12.99
Upbeat soul and plenty of grooves – all hand-picked tracks that bring the spirit of the legendary Soul Clap nights to the home listener! The series is done by Norton records in support of DJ Jonathan Toubin – who's created a unique groove on the New York scene by starting with Northern Soul, then working his way backwards into a range of grittier styles from the early years of soul and rock as well! The Soul Clap specialty is the rare 45 from the years before funk – and tracks on the collection really live up to the fire and spirit of their legendary nights. Titles on this second volume include "The Big Fight" by Ricky Allen, "I'm Gonna Put A Watch On You" by Ruby Lee, "Whiplash" by The Shells, "Don't Do It" by Cornell Blakely, "That Would Be So Good" by Preludes, "Shake That Thing" by Finney Mo, "Shindig City" by Dorothy Berry, "The Wig" by Lorenzo Holden, and "The Frog" by The Constellations.

New Hasil AdkinsWhite Light, White Meat – Authentic West Virginia One Man Band Home Recordings 1958 to 1965 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One man rockabilly firebrand and Chicken Walkin' madman Hasil Adkins – done justice once more by his longtime champions at Norton Records! The title is as cheeky nod to the Velvets, but Hasil ain't no NYC art scenester, nope – he might be the true king of rock and roll, stumping out raggedly brilliant rockabilly wierdness all by his lonesome (for the most part...a fella named Sanford Stovers sings some on "Turn My Coat Tails Loose") at his home in West Virginia from the late 50s to mid 60s. Includes "Roll Roll Train", "Woke Up This Morning", "Donnio Boogie", "Donnio Shuffle", "Lonely Graveyard", "Somebody Help Me" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Sun RaStrange Worlds In My Mind – Space Poetry Vol 1 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing side of Sun Ra's mighty talents – the first in a series of albums that focuses on vocal material from Ra, The Arkestra, and certain key guest performers! The style of music here is every bit as great as you'd hear on classic Saturn releases by Sun Ra – avant jazz, with plenty of offbeat and exotic touches, and some weird electronics too – but over the music, there's also vocals on every track – some recited by Ra himself, with a focus on his more poetic lyrics – some delivered by the enigmatic Yochanan, or vocalist Roy Stubbs. Tracks are shorter than usual Saturn album tracks – making us guess that some of these were intended for singles, although a number of cuts here are from unreleased tapes and rehearsals, too. Titles include "Message To Earthman", "I Am Trying To Find Myself", "The Damned Air", "My Children", "If They Only Knew", "My World Is The Space Way", "Death Speaks To The Negro", and "I Am An Instrument".

New Sun RaSub-Dwellers – Space Poetry Vol 2 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Sun Ra – vocal recitations, weird words, and spoken bits – all set to some mighty cosmic music! The work here is all previously unissued, and pulled from rare tapes recorded in 1966, 1968, and 1982 – an amazing discovery in the Ra archive, with a real focus on his more poetic side! The set begins with some wonderfully echoey bits – Ra's vocals in the lead, and some cool abstract sounds and electronics behind him. Other tracks have even more obscure elements in the background, and a few others provide some more familiar jazz elements – but overall, the whole thing's got a wickedly spaced-out feel – very much what you might expect if you'd ever heard the myth of Ra before hearing one of his records! Titles include "The Universe Is Endless", "The Sub-Dwellers", "Music Is A Universal Language", "The Universe Sent Me", "A Cosmic Dimension Of Music", "They Taught Me To Share", and "Worship Of A Statue".

New Sun Ra & OthersMy Way Is The Spaceway – Space Poetry Vol 4 ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible chapter in the rich career of the legendary Sun Ra – tracks that blend together music and spoken word passages – the latter of which are usually in support of his unique philosophy of the cosmos! The titles here really give an idea of the thoughts within – "The Music Is Like A Mirror", "My Way Is The Spaceways", "The Music Is A Sound Image", and "The Music Is A Vibration" – all very long tracks that are spoken by Ra in this very powerful voice – with a presence that we don't always hear from him this well on record, often set to backings that feature reed work on flute or tenor sax, mixed with a bit of light percussion. These aren't just readings, or poetry mixed with jazz – but a great glimpse at the truly theatrical side of Sun Ra's presentation, served up beautifully here in this special package.

New VariousEl Paso Rock Vol 9 – Sand Surfin' – Border Town Rock N Roll 1964 to 1967 ... LP
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The El Paso scene was miles and miles and miles away from the ocean – but the city's hotbed of indie groups of the 60s definitely picked up on the guitar-driven sounds from the coast – serving up the host of great instrumental and vocal numbers featured on the set! Make no mistake – this isn't copycat surf music, but a great example of the way that the deftness of surf guitar inspired thousands of young musicians in the 60s – giving them a way to really show off and improve their chops on the guitar in the years before more jamming modes of psych or prog. The sense of dexterity and economy here is amazing – and although some cuts have vocals, and some have other instrumentation in the lead, the guitar is really king on the set – and often produced with the kind of cool tricks they were using in LA. Titles include "Why I Cry" by Pitiful Panics, "Surf Beat 65" by Beach Nuts, "Mr Big" by Four Frogs, "Ghost Riders 65" by Scavengers, "Sand Surfin" by Four Dimensions, "Sky Diver" by Steve Cooper & The Avantis, and "Don't Need You No More" by Outer Limits.

New La La BrooksAll Or Nothing ... LP
Norton, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brand new solo work from La La Brooks of The Crystals – a singer who first worked with Phil Spector when she was only 13 years old – and who still sounds pretty darn great all these many years later! The folks at Norton have kept the record strongly in an old school 60s soul mode – a style that works perfectly with La La's lead, as she works her way through a surprisingly great range of tunes – not just soul numbers, but a few surprising rockers from the Small Faces, Bee Gees, Willy DeVille, and others – tracks that really help bring a mod soul vibe to the album. Titles include "All Or Nothing", "A Boy Like You", "Crazy For You", "Dear Boy Love Girl", "I Broke That Promise", "Sun Is Shining", and "Two Is Company". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 4 – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith – A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly & Surf From The Fifties & Sixties ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A storming mix of R&B, early soul, and rare rockers – all hand-picked by the famous team of Keb Darge and Little Edith! We first knew Keb as an expert in raw funk over 20 years ago – back at a time when few DJs cared about the style – and you can definitely hear Keb's funk-trained ears at work here – as the tunes are all plenty raw and filled with sharp edges – way way different than any mainstream assumptions you might have about rock or soul from this time! The vibe is similar to some of the best Cramps-fueled compilations, or some of the hipper Norton titles – and titles include "Get Whiz" by The Dazzlers, "Jam & Jelly" by The Col-Lee Jets, "Shis Kebab" by The Black Albinos, "Dance Franny Dance" by The Floyd Dakil Combo, "Nervous Breakdown" by Gregory Dee & The Avanties, "Steady With Betty" by Benny Joy, "Please Give Me Something" by Bill Allen & The Back Beats, and "The Shake" by George Fleming.

New VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 3 – A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly & Surf From The 50s & Early 60s – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Keb Darge continues that great step backward he's been taking in recent years – moving from his funk of the 60s and 70s to the much rawer sound of the generation before – served up in a host of rare singles filled with heavy drums, ripping guitar, and a frenzy of amazing vocals and rhythms! Little Edith is on deck to help Keb pick the tunes – and together they come up with some great gems we'd never have heard otherwise – really raw grooves that are somewhere between the space of the R&B and jukebox mambo of the Jazzman world in recent years – and the bolder, twangier grooves you'd expect from the best vintage work on Norton Records. Yet the vibe here is also different than either of those references too – a lot more freewheeling, and culled from a great love of rare vinyl that really keeps things fresh. Tracks include "Peter Gunn Twist" by The Rebel Rousers, "Connie Lou" by Ray Taylor & Alabama Pals, "Barricuda" by The Page Boys, "Hang-Out" by Joe Lee & Orchestra, "Thunder Reef" by Shindigs, "Geraldine" by Ole Miss Down Beats, "Whiphash" by Riki & The Rikatones, "Rock & Roll Guitar" by Johnny Knight, and "I'm The Wolf Man" by Round Robin.
