No need to fear the feet of Godzilla or Gamera – as the sounds on this set are so searing, they must have made it pretty darn hard for the radioactive lizards to even come close to the streets of Tokyo back in the 60s! As with the first fab volume in this series, the set brings together a whole host of rare garage and beat group sounds from late 60s Japan – all by acts that were clearly inspired by the hippest styles of London a few years before – so much so that they mostly sing in English on most of these cuts. Titles include "Haiku" by The Mops, "Over Under Sideways Down" by The Beavers, "Got My Mojo Working" by The Golden Cups, "I'm So Glad" by The Jaguars, "Hey Joe" by The Golden Cups, "I Love You Every Day Sandy" by The Carnabeats, and "Boom Boom" by The Spiders.

Jean Luc Ponty —
Fables ... LP Atlantic, 1985. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Almost a back-to-basics album for jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty – one that has him kicking things up with a bit more heavy fusion than on some of his other 80s records – almost jamming at times, and at least returning to some of the energy he had back in the 70s! Most of the record features a core group with Scott Henderson on guitar, Baron Browne on bass, and Rayford Griffin on drums – and Ponty's playing a few different electric violins, plus a bit of keyboards – on tracks that include "Radioactive Legacy", "Perpetual Rondo", "Cat's Tales", "In The Kingdom Of Peace", "Infinite Pursuit", and "Elephants In Love".
