✨✧ FugsBelle Of Avenue A ... CD
Reprise/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the last couple of Fugs albums for Reprise – '69's Belle Of Avenue A – and a mix of stripped down acoustic weirdness and the more heated Fugs-style rock & roll of other Reprise albums by the group! In one level, it seems like they might have simply exorcised the experimental psychedelia demon with the more wildly arranged It Crawled Into My Hand, Honest album and decided to let this one succeed on the basis of the political satire and poetry of their wordplay. But it's not that simple, as they rage pretty heavily on a couple tunes and strip it down to the barest essentials on others. Ultimately, it's another sharp, worthy Fugs album everyone outta pick up! Inclludes "Bum's Song", "Dust Devil", "Chicago", "For Minutes To Twelve", "Queen Of The Nile", "Yodeling Yippie", "Children Of The Dream" and more. CD

✨✧ FugsFugs First Album ... LP
ESP, 1965. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
The legendary first album by The Fugs – a set that was first issued on Folkways Records, then later on ESP – and which is maybe a perfect bridge between these different underground worlds in the 60s! Ed Sanders, Tuli Kupferberg, Peter Stampfel, and the others are clearly budding hippies – but there's also a quality here that's different than the scene a few years later – maybe pulled equally from the late beat world, and the underground film world – no surprise, as Harry Smith produced the record for the group, and really has a great ear for their rootsier elements on acoustic instruments. The whole thing was recorded in two afternoon sessions in 1965, and still remains a record with surprising power after all these years – on titles that include "Slum Goddess", "Swinburn Stomp", "Supergirl", "Boobs A Lot", "My Baby Done Left Me", and "I Couldn't Get High". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s pressing. Cover has some wear and aging. Vinyl plays with a click on "My Baby Done Left Me", and has a deeper mark on "Boobs A Lot".)

Country Joe & The FishI Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die ... LP
Vanguard, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Country Joe & The Fish – an insane blend of politics, psychedelia, rock roots, and more – all wrapped up in a nice of carnival-esque style that really lives up to the group's name! Many folks later copied the group – and others, like The Fugs, worked in somewhat similar territory – yet there's a really special sound to the group on this early set, a balance that brings more focus to otherwise trippy moments, more sense to their political agenda, and these sharp instrumental inflections that really send the whole thing home. Blues historian Samuel Charters produced, giving the record another influential quality – and titles include "The Fish Cheer & I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die-Rag", "Who Am I", "Pat's Song", "Magoo", "Jam", "Eastern Song", and "Colors For Susan". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK black label pressing.)

Holy Modal RoundersBird Song Live 1971 ... CD
Water, 1971. New Copy ... $14.99 17.99
A very cool live performance by this legendary freaky group – not done in concert, but for WLIR radio in New York – at a time when the Rounders were really perfecting their mix of hippie ideas and surprisingly great musicianship! Some of the tunes here are nice and jamming, and build up in a way that reminds us that these guys could rock a bit more than we sometimes give them credit for – while others are more in that Fugs-like territory that maybe made them the key inheritors of that legacy for a number of years – as was singer Peter Stampfel when he went off on his own. Titles include "Pink Underwear", "Boobs A Lot/Willie & The Hand Jive", "Bird Song", "Give Me Your Money", "Catch Me", and "Smokey Joe's Cafe". CD

Pink FairiesPolydor Years (Never Never Land/What A Bunch Of Sweeties/Kings Of Oblivion/with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Floating World (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $6.99
A trio of key albums from the Pink Fairies – served up with lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Never Never Land – the fantastic debut of the Pink Fairies – easily one of the shaggiest, headiest bands on the UK scene at the start of the 70s – and a group who rose from the ashes of the equally important Deviants! The record's an unusual mishmash of modes – a set that confidently swaggers between psych, hard rock, and maybe even a bit of proto-punk – very confident in its approach, and coolly compressed in the production, but never in the slick style that would dominate British rock more strongly in the mid 70s. The Fairies aren't afraid to let their freak flag fly, but they're also clearly moving past hippiedom too – on titles that include "War Girl", "Do It", "Say You Love Me", "Tack One Side Two", "Thor", "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout", and "The Dream Is Just Beginning". What A Bunch Of Sweeties is filled with freaky fuzz from the Pink Fairies – a seminal UK group who were maybe trapped in a space between late psych and early glam – and somehow equally important to both! There's lots going on in the set – modes that are as offbeat as styles put forth by The Fugs in the late 60s, but a lot sharper overall from a musical perspective – especially in the way the group uses great guitar work and a few catchy numbers to sew the whole thing together – on titles that include "Portobello Shuffle", "Marilyn", "Pigs Of Uranus", "Walk Don't Run", "X-Ray", "I Went Up I Went Down", and "I Saw Her Standing There". Kings Of Oblivion is maybe the most fully-formed album from the legendary Pink Fairies – and a set that's got some really searing guitar from Larry Wallis – a melodic genius whose sound really holds things together, and gives the group a stronger focus than ever before! The guitar lines seem to bring out and amplify all the ideas the group were going for before – and maybe give the group a sense of darkness that they never fully reached – not hard rock cliche, but this tightness that's also completely individual – maybe like early Thin Lizzy at their best, yet in a completely different way. Titles include "I Wish I Was A Girl", "City Kids", "When's The Fun Begin", "Chromium Plating", "Street Urchin", and "Chamber Maid". Bonus tracks include "Going Down", "Walk Don't Run (first version)", "War Girl (alt mix)", "The Snake", "Do It (single mix)", "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout (alt mix)", "Well Well Well (alt mix)", "City Kids (alt)", and "Hold On (single)".

Steven TaylorWilliam Blake's Songs Of Innocence & Experience ... CD
Ace (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $8.99
A new recording of songs set to words by poet William Blake – a project begun by singer/guitarist Steven Taylor with Allen Ginsberg, who'd previously recorded a famous album of Blake's work – then finally finished years after Ginsberg's death, as kind of a first step towards a complete reading of work by the poet! The songs were co-tuned by Taylor and Ginsberg – and the instrumentation here features Taylor on vocals, guitar, and keyboards – with backing by a small group that features Marilyn Crispell on piano and Ross Goldstein on mellotron. Songs are all poems from the Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience series by Blake – and there's a nicely eerie vibe here, kind of Blake through Ginsberg through Wicker Man, with maybe a touch of The Fugs in the mix.

✨✧ Kinky FriedmanThey Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore ... CD
Epic/Bear Family (Germany), 1974/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
With a look like that on the cover, and a title like that on the front, you can bet that Kinky Friedman was out to ruffle the mainstream world of country music in the 70s – which he maybe did at a level that was even more powerful than Kris Kristofferson or Willie Nelson with recordings like these! Kinky's 70s group was named the Texas Jewboys – and it's almost as if he borrowed a bit of political wit and social agenda from The Fugs, then found a way to turn it towards more conventional country music – often at a level that made a fair bit of these tunes pretty darn catchy! Friedman's sometimes thought of as only a comedic talent, but there's a depth here that's really surprising – very much in the best alt-country mode of the generation of David Allen Coe, Joe Ely, Jerry Jeff Walker, and some of his more successful contemporaries. CD features 25 tracks in all – two albums for Epic, plus bonus cuts – and titles include "Homo Erectus", "Men's Room LA", "Bananas & Cream", "Dear Abbie", "Twinkle", "Sold American", "If I Never Have Another Hit", "Ballad Of Ira Hayes", "They Ain't Makin Jews Like Jesus Anymore", and "Rapid City South Dakota".
