Ant Trip Ceremony24 Hours ... CD
Cicadelic, 1968. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
A college band, but one with an amazing sound that should have made them huge – had they managed to survive graduation time at Oberlin College! For a combo out in the sticks of Ohio, these guys sound pretty darn great (but let's also not forget that Oberlin's given us Liz Phair, John McIntire, and plenty of other key talents over the years) – and they're a fuzzy little group with a warmly laidback feel to their music – kind of folk-psych, produced here with a nicely naive sort of sensibility. The tunes are every bit as great as better-known work coming out of the New York or LA scenes of the time, and they're quite surprising for their maturity and power overall – as even familiar numbers are way more than just simple covers in the hands of the group. Titles include "Four In The Morning", "Violets Of Dawn", "Hey Joe", "Outskirts", "Elaborations", "Pale Shades Of Gray", and "What's The Matter Now". CD

Fallen AngelsGreat Society Sucks – Live Halloween 1968 ... CD
Cicadelic, 1968. New Copy ... $4.99 14.98
About as heavy and fuzzy as you can get for late 60s psych – but that's also partly due to the live recording quality of the set! But even with a bit of mud in the mix, things are still pretty damn compelling – way more than just a concert, really more of a "happening" – especially given the cool part when the band together chants the title passage – a keen critique on LBJ-era America! The whole thing's a beautiful relic of the days when going out to a rock club was still an exciting – and possibly dangerous – experience. Titles include "Everything Would Be Fine", "Fat Angel", "Pegasus The Pig For President", "Signed DC", and "Poor Old Man". CD

J Frank Wilson & The CavaliersLast Kiss – The Definitive Collection ... CD
Cicadelic, 1964. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
The first-ever set to fully plumb the talents of J Frank Wilson & The Cavaliers – a 60s Texas group who are best-remembered for their classic "Last Kiss" hit, but who've got plenty more to offer here! There's an echoey brilliance to most of these numbers that really stands out – a stark, spare, simple approach to pop that shows why the hinterlands of the US scene were often some of the hippest places to look for new music back in the day. Wilson's heartfelt vocals really come across with a tremendous sense of sadness here – spun out with very spacious sound in the studio, and backed by a beautifully blue blend of electric guitar, organ, and saxophone. A number of the masters here have never been heard since the 60s – and the CD features a whopping 25 tracks that include "Last Kiss", "Sea Of Love", "Teenager In Love", "Summertime", "Hey Little One", "Too Many Girls", "He'll Learn About Her", "A Kiss", "Hopeless Love", "Wine Wine Wine", "Funky Mama", "Not This Time", and "Speak To Me".

VariousRevolution! – Teen Time In Corpus Christi 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 14.98
Rare mid 60s rock from Corpus Christi, TX – from Brit Invasion styled sounds to nascent garage and psychedelia from a slew of great groups from what was clearly a healthy scene – one of the best rock comps yet from Cicadelic! The musicianship is incredible here – even though many of the players are likely still in their teens – with tight harmonies and skillful guitar, drums and bass playing. That said, it's raw and invigorating – even the tunes with early Beatles style harmonies have a raucous edge. 28 tracks in all: "It's So Hard (Previously Unreleased)", "Don't Give Up Hope" and more by Four More, "All Night Long", "A Taste Of The Same" and more by The Bad Seeds, "Passage To India (Previously Unreleased Mix)" by The Zakary Thaks, "Recognition", "Eveline Kaye" and more by The Liberty Bell, "Bad Side Of The Moon" and "Revolution" by Kubla Kahn, "I've Got Something On My Mind" by The Buckle and much more.

✨✧ DeepPsychedelic Moods Of The Deep (remastered edition) ... CD
Cameo/Cicadelic, 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The west coast had The Seeds, and the east coast had The Deep – a group known only for this one album, but a key garage psych group nonetheless! This record's a gem through and through – oddly (almost mistakenly) issued on the mostly-pop Cameo label in the mid 60s, but recorded with a fantastic studio technique that has lots of odd electronics and sound effects sneaking in alongside the fuzzy guitars and earthy vocals. The band were mostly a studio project between Rusy Evans and Mark Barkan of Freak Scene, and also features work by a young David Bromberg – and although they've only left this one record to their legacy, it's a heck of a great album to leave! Titles include "Color Dreams", "Pink Ether", "Turned On", "When Rain Is Black", "Psychedelic Moon", "Shadows On The Wall", "Trip #76", and "On Off Off On". 18 tracks in all. CD
(2010 Definitive Masters Edition.)

✨✧ Human ZooHuman Zoo ... CD
Cicadelic, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Suburban LA psychedelia from the dawn of the 70s – the rare self-titled album from The Human Zoo! The Human Zoo started out as The Circus, eventually cutting this underappreciated album for Accent Records. Even in a freewheeling, anything goes era of Cali rock, The Human Zoo have a pretty far reaching vibe – from stripped down guitar based garage psyche, to more of a pummeling, fuzzed out take on blue eyed R&B, to looser, roomier grooves. Titles include "IT's Got To Be", "Na-Na", "Funny", "Late To My Resurrection", "Stone Sassy Fox", "The Human Zoo", "The Time Was Over" and more. CD

✨✧ JujusYou Treat Me Bad 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy mid 60s material from The Jujus – from ultra catchy garage rock to more of a psychedelic sound that's just as tuneful – a nice compilation of singles are rarities from 1965-1967! The set actually includes all of the singles by the Jujus and a wealth of rarities and alternate mixes, from tight garagey gems to more of a spiraling, but still quite raw psyche influenced vibe a little later on. The melodies are sweet, and the sax adds a little depth to the more sugary moments, and it's a really winning compilation! 23 tracks including some alternate versions: "You Treat Me Bad", "Runaround Girl", "I'm Cryin", "She's My Girl", "The Gentle Rain", "Sometime Or Other", I'll Be There", "I Love Her So", "In The Park", "Fine Day", "Open Up Your Door" and lots more.

✨✧ Lemon DropsSunshine Flower Power ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare psychedelic rock from the suburban Chicago scene – pioneering midwestern flower power from The Lemon Drops – from tripped out folk rock to more buzzing Nuggets style grooves! The group's exceptional "I Live In The Springtime" appeared on the Nuggets box set from Rhino, and other harder to find compilations of rare garage & psychedelia, and the group deserves to be considered with the likes of other more legendary purveyors of panoramic psyche and gritty garage of the era – really pulling off groovy and jangling melodies and more buzzing and fuzzed out rock with equal aplomb! The first disc includes previously unreleased version and rarities galore, with "Sometime Ago" (unreleased and raga versions), "The Theater Of Your Eyes", "To The Tower", "Flower Child Eyes And Arms", "Death Calls"., "Guinevere", "Learn To Fly", "Love Is A Word" and much more. Disc 2 rarities include "My Friend", "Flowers In The Hillside", "I Like You", "Paper Plane Flyer", "Sleeping On Colors", "I Live In The Springtime" (original single mix and extended alternate versions), "Hi, How Are You Today?" and lots more. 36 tracks on 2CDs!

✨✧ Lemon FogPsychedelic Sound Of Summer With The Lemon Fog ... CD
Cicadelic, 1967/1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tight, spacey psychedelic pop from the fertile TX landscape – really cool stuff from Houston's Lemon Fog! The group isn't as wildly tripped out as more canonized TX psych combos such as the 13th Floor Elevators – the Lemon Fog has a more accessible vibe, one that we thing should have gotten them bigger outside of their Houston home. It's a bit more akin to the Brit psych, with chiming guitars (including a 12-string), organ and groovy vocal harmonies fleshing out some painterly, kinda surreal lyricism. Includes previously unreleased complete versions of "Summer", "The Prisoner" and "Day By Day", previously unreleased outtake and complete versions of "Echoes Of Time", a previously unreleased mix of "Yes I Cry", original single master version of "Girl From The Wrong Side Of Town" and more. Includes the group's great handful of singles, including alternate unreleased versions! CD

✨✧ Johnny WinterByrds Can't Row Boats – The Unreleased Masters Collection 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great collection of early work from Johnny Winter – singles and studio tracks from the few years before he burst on the scene with Columbia Records at the end of the 60s – served up in a range of styles that include psych and folk rock, in addition to Winter's more familiar bluesy sounds! The collection features 36 tracks, all sourced from the original tapes – and presented at a level that's much better than any other previous attempt to look at Johnny's early years – with 21 titles that appear here for the first time ever! There's almost more of an LA early 60s vibe to the music than you'd expect – hence the play on The Byrds in the title – and the psychedelic numbers are perhaps some of the most revelatory here. Titles include "The World Turns All Around Her", "Easy Lovin Girl", "Parchman Farm", "Pneumonia Blues", "Sloppy Drunk", "Comin Up Fast", "Livin In The Blues", "Birds Can't Row Boats", "Goin Down Slow", "Don't Drink Whiskey", "32 20 Blues", "Bad News", "Ballad Of Bertha Glutz", and "Hook You".

✨✧ VariousCome Back Bird – The Abilene Texas Teen Scene 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groovy compilation of 60s teen rockers from the Abilene, TX scene – Brit Invasion styled numbers, but with the rawer edge that's so much more pleasing to the ears than the sweetened up, too polished bigger budget sounds of the style and era – with youthful energy that can't be faked! It's got both simmering and stomping numbers by The Chevelle V, The Living End, The Continentals and The Coachmen. A welcome revival on Cicadelic! Titles include "Come Back Bird", "Not This Time", "Eenie Meanie Minie Moe" and more by Chevelle V, "Roadrunner", "Friends", "All Alone" and more by The Living End, "I'm Gone" by The Continentals, "Say You Love Me" and "Hush Broken Heart" by The Coachmen and more. 24 tracks in all.

Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cool 60s rock from the Lone Star State – raw garage rock and melodic gems, too from the mid 60s McAllen, TX scene in the Rio Grande Valley – featuring numbers by The Cavaliers, The Headstones, Christopher And The Souls, The Playboys Of Edinburg, Jeanne Hatfield and Brother And Sister! Most of the groups can handle both a raw, but melodic style and a much more fuzzed out, organ-drenched and propellant groove, but there's some diverse, moody twists and turns. Includes "Symbols Of Sin", "Congregation For Anti-Flirts Inc" and more by Cavaliers, "My Kind Of Girl" and "Wish She Were Mine" by The Headstones, "Diamonds, Rats And Gum" by Christopher And The Souls, "Understand Me" by Playboys Of Edinburg, "That Hurts", "Seaweed" and more by Cavaliers, "My Babe" by Jeanne Hatfield, "The Answer" by Brother And Sister and more.

✨✧ VariousIt's A Happening – Texas Girls Of The 60s ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest compilations yet on the Cicadelic label – a great collection of sweet, yet fairly rumbling singles from Texas girl group rock from the mid 60s – long-unheard numbers from The WordD, Friday And The Girls, The Heart Beats, The Bombshells, Linda Pierre King and The Penthouse! The Heart Beats came out of Lubbock to become the best known of the girls featured here in the original period – but it it's all great stuff, from garage rock organ & guitar groovers to sweeter vocal pop. Includes "Today Is Just Tomorrow's Yesterday" by The WordD, "An Older Boy" by Friday And The Girls, "Crying Inside", "Choo Choo Train", "Poor Side Of Town" and more by The Heart Beats, "Hard Lovin Babe", "Blackness", "Tiny Sparrow", "My Boot Heels Are Travelin" and more by Linda Pierre King, "You're Always Around" by The Penthouse and more. 25 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousOpen Up Your Mind – The Psych Pop World Of Rembrandt Records 1966 to 1967 ... CD
Cicadelic, 1966/1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool compilation that collects the first couple years of recordings for Chicago's Rembrandt Records – some great and largely unheard garage psyche from The Nuchez, The Nite-Owls (also known as The Nickel Bag), The Circus, The Lemon Drops and others! Some of these cats were still in their teens, making walloping yet tuneful numbers inspired by LSD and other illicit activities, which gives the some songs a seedy charm, but the ultimately it's simply great raw, yet solidly produced rock that's as groovy as Nuggets tracks and better known numbers of the era. Includes "Open Up Your Mind" and "BG's One Eye" by The Nuchez, "Sands Of Mind" and "Games We Play" by The Circus, "It's A Hassle" by The Nite-Owls, "The Woods" by The Nickel Bag, "Sometime Ago" by The Lemon Drops and more. 22 tracks in all, including previously unreleased stereo and mono versions, and all of it is actually quite rare!

✨✧ VariousThree O'Clock Merrian Webster Time – Texas Psychedelic Bands 1966 to 1968 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of best set's yet on the Cicadelic label – deep diggers of obscure regional psych sounds – this one collecting rumbling late 60s singles by TX combos Carrols Mood, The Nomads, The Rebellers, Smoke, and The Remaining Few! It covers the years '66-'68 – a really creative period when the Brit Invasion and folk rock stuff that was popular around the globe was morphing into nascent psychedelia. Regional US groups on the coasts were making it big, but so many regional acts were just as great and never really got a shot at massive popularity. Here's a great document of what was happening down in Texas! Includes "What You're Doing To Me" and Out She Goes" (unreleased mixes) by Carrols Mood, "I'll Be There", "Three O'Clock Merrian" (several takes) and a really wild cover of "My Little Red Book" all by The Nomads, "Mainstream" by Smoke, "Mystical Bells" by The Sights And Sounds, "The New Generation" (previously unreleased mix) by The Rebellers and more.

Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of killer mid-to-late 60s garage rock from the Motor City – with tracks by somewhat better known Detroit rockers Unrelated Segments and Tidal Waves – plus just as riveting material from The Unknowns, The Boys, The District Dix, The Couriers and The Lykes Of Us. Raw and rollicking tunes, plus bits of soul & r&b sax and rhythmic sensibility – some with gentle melodies and bits of strings, others rumbling, fuzzy and rebellious. A total blast! 26 tracks in all: "How Do You Do With Me" by The Boys, "Grits & Grease" by The Quintette Plus, "Night Walkin" by The Unknowns, "Farmer John", "Action" and more by The Tidal Waves, "7 And 7 Is" and more by District Six, "Just Tell Me" and more by The Couriers, "7:30 Said", "I'll Sing You A Love Song" and more by The Lykes Of Us, "The Story Of My Life", "It's Gonna Rain", "There's Gonna Be A Change" and more by The Unrelated Segments.

✨✧ Exotics/EsquiresDallas '66 – The Now Sound Is Here ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare mid 60s Dallas material – great stuff by the The Exotics and the Esquires – raucous, yet melodic tracks on the edge separating garage and psych! The Exotics were rock band with roots as far back as the late 50s scene, but these mid 60s tracks are very much of their time. The Esquires were formed in the mid 60s, and combine some delicate, kind of folk rock rooted style with harder edged sounds. The sound is great and well crafted enough to have crossed over to richer pastures, but still with a sharp edge. Includes "Come With Me", "I Was Alone", "Queen Of Shadows", "Hymn To Her" and more by The Exotics, along with some demos and alternate versions – plus "Come On, Come On", "Judgement Days", "Time Don't Mean So Much", "Loneliness Is Mine", and more by The Esquires. 24 tracks in all.

✨✧ Mad Hatters/Fallen AngelsMad Hatters Meet The Fallen Angels – Washington DC 1965 to 1966 ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great set of rare mid 60s rock from the DC scene – primarily The Mad Hatters and The Fallen Angels – rare singles and previously unreleased material from those 2 and associated acts on this stellar compilation from Cicadelic! The Mad Hatters have a sound that stretches from jangly early electric Dylan influences to sweaty, hard charging Stones-y sounds – and they excel at both! The Fallen Angels balance delicate melodies and a rawer edge, somewhere between loose folk rock and grittier garage sounds. It's really great stuff – hit worthy production, but with sharper edges. Another total win from Cicadelic – an archives mining label that's introduced us to many a worthy regional rock act over the years! Includes "I Need Love", "I'll Come Running", "This Is How It's Gonna Be", "I Need Love (Live)" and more by The Mad Hatters, plus "Have You Ever Lost A Love", "I Have Found", "A Pebble In My Sand (Unreleased)", "Who Do You Love (Unreleased)" and more by The Fallen Angels, plus recordings from the associated groups The Loved Ones and The Time Stoppers.

✨✧ Sunset Love/Inner SanctumPsychedelic Moods Part 2 – Journey Thru Inner Space With Sunset Love & Inner Sanctum ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Groovy psychedelia from a pair of groups – Sunset Love, made up of players from Texas and New Mexico – plus Inner Sanctum, made up of actors & musicians of an off Broadway musical! The project was largely conceived and put together by Mark Barkan of The Deep (which recorded the original Psychedelic Moods album) and The Freak Scene – as something of a psychedelic concept album that would journey into the various psyches of the mind. The Sunset Love tracks feature groovy harmonies and chiming guitar and organ psych backdrops. Tracks include "Change", "Tribute To Kay", "Little Children", "Reach Out", "A Man In The Park", "Push", "Green Hippie", "Innocence Dies Young On Our Street" and more. The Inner Sanctum tracks have the feel of a genuine lost psychedelic classic, with a group of Greenwich Village actors and musicians pulling it off perfectly with and with raw edge that feels like it could come unhinged at any point, despite warm, groovy harmonies. Tracks include "The House Of Yesterday", "Id", "Hydro-Pyro", "The Man Who Shot Your Mother", "Purple Floating" and more. CD
