GolemOrion Awakes ... CD
Acme/Lion, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99
Early 70s space rock from Golem – epically paced, trippy, expertly done wigged out instrumental rock that was purportedly laid down by heavies from the soon-to-be legendary krautrock scene working pseudonymously after hours in the studio! The album's a bit of an enigma – a set that's become famous over the years for its quality, but shrouded in enough mystery that some have doubted its story – although overall, the music here feels like the best early 70s space rock on labels like Brain or Egg – with lots of layers of keyboards and guitars over building drums and basslines. Interestingly, the producer as credited as Genius P Orridge for Pyramid Records, strangely similar to another name, wouldn't ya say? Titles include "Orion Awakes", "Stellar Launch", "Godhead Dance", "Jupiter & Beyond", and "The Returning". CD

PleaseCircus Days – A Collection Of Demos & Studio Recordings 1967 to 1969 ... LP
Lion/Acme, Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Beautiful early work from Please – aka Peter Dunton, who went onto more famous underground activity in the seminal jazz psych group T2! The music here shares a lot of the melodic qualities of that great group – music that's certainly rock, but which borrows freely from some of the hipper jazz styles of the time – especially modal jazz, which seems to influence the rhythms amidst the acoustic guitar and vocals! Most of the tracks are relatively spare, but have a full sort of energy because of this influence – and a few of the demo tracks are maybe straighter folk/rock, but still have a really wonderful sound. Titles include "One More Chance", "Said & Done", "Eternity", "Gently As You Feel", "To Dream", "Don't Mind Me", "Circus Man", "Silent Falling", "Lord Of Misrule", and "Nothing's What It Seems". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FliesComplete Collection 1965 to 1968 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Lion/Acme Gramophone (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
With a look like this, and a sound so great, The Flies should have been huge – and hearing this collection, it's a complete mystery as to why the group's work has always been relegated to obscurity status of the psychedelic era! It's possible the reason likes in the ultimate lack of work by The Flies – a handful of singles at best, something that's corrected by this 17 track set, which is filled with loads of excellent unreleased numbers. But it's also possible that these guys were truly years ahead of their time – as you might guess from the modernly menacing look of the combo on the cover. Bits of mainstream psyche mix here with fuzzier guitars, rougher production, and a brewing, bubbling sort of sound that filters through all the tunes and gives them a sense of greatness that's hard to describe – which which is definitely part of the appeal of the record. At moments, we find ourselves thinking that these guys could have easily knocked down any number of bigger acts that come to mind – but at others, we find ourselves loving this work even more for its lack of common late 60s cliche. Titles include "Talk To Me", "House Of Love", "Alexander Bell Believes", "Where", "Turning Back The Page", "Just Won't Do", "Gently As You Feel", "The Magic Train", and "Winter Afternoon".
