Flamin GrooviesGonna Rock Tonight – The Complete Recordings 1969 to 1971 (Supersnazz/Flamingo/Teenage Head/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Kama Sutra/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The birth of genius – the first three albums by Flamin Groovies, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Supersnazz – the first album from legendary San Francisco rockers the Flaming Groovies – and the cleaner horn-accented blueprint for the shakey, skronky structure to come! Supersnazz has a bit of a sibling in the first Stooges LP – in that the palatable production only hints at the insanity of later records – but it's a good rocking record all the same, a good site stranger, fierier and groovier than most of their contemporaries could muster! Tracks include "Love Have Mercy", "Laurie Did It", "Rockin' Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu", "The First One's Free", "Pagan Rachel", "Pistol Packin' Mama", "Brushfire", "Around The Corner" and more. Flamingo is one of the finest moments ever from The Flamin Groovies – a set that's awash in 50s rock and roll influences, yet filtered through the heady late 60s San Francisco scene – making for a mix that's completely compelling throughout, and unlike anything else we can think of! The Groovies might initially seem like retro-rockers, yet they've got this sharp edge that makes their music more of a commentary on rock and roll, and its roots as well – uttered beautifully at a time when so many others were falling into excess, but also done without any of the "roots" cliches that others were embracing in a much clunkier way! It's hard to sum up adequately, but the record's almost a leap forward from Gene Vincent over 60s psyche – but on its way to the rough edges embraced by the UK punk scene in years to come – kind of that odd space that the Modern Lovers hit with their Kim Fowley recordings, but much more rocking overall. Most numbers are originals from vocalist Roy Loney – and titles include "Comin After Me", "Headin For The Texas Border", "Second Cousin", "Childhood's End", "Jailbait", and "She's Falling Apart". Teenage Head is 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". 3CD set features a whopping 17 bonus tracks – including "Louie Louie", "Shakin All Over", "Carol", "Scratch My Back", "Rumble", "Somethin Else", "Going Out (version 2)", "Walking The Dog", "The First One's Free (single)", "Around & Around", and "My Girl Josephine.

Plastic PennyEverything I Am – The Complete Plastic Penny (Two Sides Of A Penny mono & stereo/Currency/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Page One/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Two full albums from this compelling late 60s British group – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Two Sides Of A Penny – a great little record from a British group who grew out of a single studio pop hit – then quickly emerged as something else entirely! Singer Brian Keith recorded the leadoff hit as a single, without the band – but man, once a group was put together, things really got interesting – as Keith's compelling, soulful vocals get sublime support from the organ of Paul Raymond, guitar of Mike Graham, bass of Tony Murray, and drums of a young Nigel Olsson – who'd later go on to great fame in the 70s! The territory has echoes of the soul and blues of the mod years – but the complexity of the organ lines, and some of the rhythms, make for a more baroque sound – maybe like Procol Harum at times, but with its very own vibe. Olsson and Raymond also sing a bit – and titles include "Everything I Am", "Genevieve", "Wake Me Up", "Mrs Grundy", "Take Me Back", "I Want You", "So Much Older Now", "No Pleasure Without Pain My Love", and a version of "Strawberry Fields Forever". Next up is Currency – the obscure second album from Plastic Penny – a group who hardly cracked the charts with their debut, and who maybe sound even more amazing this time around! The group have shed their previous vocalist, Brian Keith, and are working as a really tight quartet with fantastic guitar lines, drums, and organ – all wrapped up in a mode that's swirling and powerful, but neither entirely psych nor prog either – thanks in part to a tightness that still echoes modes of the mod years, but with wilder edges – and a newly-discovered energy that really has these guys letting loose in a totally great way. Titles include "Caledonian Mission", "Currency", "Sour Suite", "Give Me Money", "Turn To Me", and "Your Way To Tell Me To Go". 3CD box features an insane amount of bonus tracks – the full first album in mono, plus 14 more tracks from BBC sessions – and bonus singles that include "Nobody Knows It", "Guarda Nel Cielo", "Happy Just To Be With You", "Tutto Quel Che Ho", "Everything I Am (first version)", "Your Way To Tell Me To Go", "Baby You're Not To Blame (single)", "Hound Dog (single)", "Celebrity Ball", "Currency (single)", "She Does", and "Genevieve (single)".

Rainbow FfollySpectromorphic Iridescence– The Complete Ffolly – Sallies Fforth/Ffollow Up! (with bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/2016. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
The complete works of Ranbow Ffolly – presented here in an overstuffed 3CD set! First off, forgive the double letters in the group's name – but that's the way the band spelled it themselves, and if you sounded this trippy, you'd probably do the same! Rainbow Ffolly have a really unique sound, even for their time – because they're not really Sunshine Pop, but they're also not totally head-expanding psych either. Instead, there's kind of a personal, almost artsy approach – but one that doesn't ever get too bogged down in itself, even though it's clearly concerned with sound experiments as much as it is with jangly guitar pop – which really comes through in the way that the guitars get all weird and strangely sonic around the edges. The set features both stereo and mono versions of their classic album Sallies Fforth – with titles that include "She's Alright", "Sun Sing", "Sun & Sand", "Labour Exchange", "Sighing Game", "Come On Go", "Montgolfier", and "I'm So Happy". Then, the set features lots more bonus tracks from the same period – including 'Go Girl", "Drive My Car (single mix)", "The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill", and "Sun Sing" – plus this very cool series of "hospital radio jingles", which are interspersed with the group performing songs that include "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, "I Can't Let Maggie Go", "Gimme Little Sign", "Bells of Rhymney", "Something Else", "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", and "I'm So Happy". Then, CD3 features the album Ffollow Up – recorded in 2016 by remaining members of the group – with 18 more tracks in all! CD

SearchersWhen You Walk In The Room – The Complete Pye Recordings 1963 to 1967 (6CD set) ... CD
Pye/Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 6CD ... $36.99
An insane amount of material from The Searchers – served up here in a set that goes way way past their few hits that made it to the radio over here back in the 60s! The group were a key part of the evolving British sound of the time – and had this way of harmonizing together that was definitely in the mode of some of the best Lennon & McCartney material, especially the earliest Beatles albums – but they also have a catchy, jaunty quality that's all their own – maybe the best sort of variation of modes that other groups were breaking bigger with here during the British Invasion years. As with many of their contemporaries, there's certainly an influence from American blues and soul – but their style is also not as mod as some of the rest, and maybe has more of a riffing guitar style with the rhythms that might be more appropriate as an evolution of skiffle. Whatever the case, you'll find plenty to hear here – and plenty to love – as the set features a stunning 160 tracks on 6 CDs – mono and stereo mixes of Meet The Searchers, Sugar & Spice, It's The Searchers, Sounds Like Searchers, and Take Me For What I'm Worth – plus the record Take It Or Leave It, and a lot of bonus tracks from singles too!

VariousCome Join My Orchestra – The British Baroque Pop Sound 1967 to 1973 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A very cool little genre – one that overlaps a bit with UK folk and some of its prettier pop of the period – and which often gets the same sort of top-shelf studio and production help as the best of the psychedelic generation! The music here is heavy on strings, woodwinds, and other larger instrumental elements – but all used in a way that's very hip, and quite different from the slicker pop modes of just a few years before! The cuts here are all made by longer-haired, open minded folks from the time – helping to reshape folk styles towards their acid generation to come, or introducing a more thoughtful mode of songwriting amidst the freakier period of the psych years – all with results that are completely sublime. You'll recognize a few names here, including a number you might not think of as "baroque pop" – but together, they work well with some of the lesser-knowns – to craft music that helped draw together generations of British musical expression, at a level that's still pretty darn fresh today. 3CD set features a great booklet of notes, and 80 tracks by artists who include The Factotums, The Move, Fickle Pickle, Donovan, Gilbert, Tony Hazzard, The Strawbs, Freedom, Clifford T Ward, The Money Jungle, Jonathan Gill, Bert Jansch, The Matchmakers, Picadilly Line, Briget St John, Bill Fay, Procol Harum, The Majority, Five Steps Beyond, Festival, Stackridge, Muffin, Agincourt, The Orange Bicycle, Mike Batt, Billy Nicholls, Wil Malone, Julian Brooks, Lean Nixon, Harmony Grass, and many more!

VariousI Said, She Said, Ah Cid – The Exploito Psych World Of Alshire Records 1967 to 1970 (3CD set) ... CD
Alshire/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A totally wonderful look at the late 60s Alshire label – an unusual cheapo imprint on the LA scene of the time, one that was mostly created to cash in on mainstream trends – but which somehow managed to make some amazing music in the process! Alshire was one of those discount store labels that tried to fool shoppers into thinking they were buying something hip – but instead sold them its own homegrown versions of psych, garage, or other groovy styles of the time. Yet despite these sneaky motives, the label actually found a way to bring together really interesting studio talents for their efforts – which has resulted in a legacy that's made some of their albums collectors treasures over the years – even if the process and contents are sometimes a mystery! This set does a great job of getting to the heart of the mystery – by offering up a huge booklet of notes that includes way more information than the label ever gave you with their records – notes on their history, the background performers, and other information – along with 82 tracks from the label's catalog. CD 1 features three full albums – the self-titled Animated Egg psych classic, plus Sounds Of Today and Astro Sounds From Beyond The Year 2000, both issued under the name of 101 Strings. CD 2 is dedicated entirely to The California Poppy Pickers – maybe the best-known group to come from the Alshire stable – with 26 tracks that include a few originals, and their fantastic reworking of other folks' tunes. CD 3 features 26 more tunes – recorded by artists who include The Mustang, Icarus, Doctor Marigold's Prescription, Autumn, Modern Sounds, Jane & Eve & The Creations, John Bunyan's Progressive Pilgrims, and The Heads Of The Family. Fantastic – and long overdue! CD

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The birth of hard rock on the UK scene at the end of the 60s – sounds that would go on to shape the world of guitar-based music for decades, and even pave the way for later advances in punk and metal too! The groups here are mostly tight, focused, and to the point – even on some of the selections from some of the acts you might also know from the world of prog – as these tracks often pulsate with a strongly rhythmic vibe, in ways that are very different from mod sounds of just a few years before – and which also make totally different use of fuzz guitar than work from the psych or freakbeat scenes! The package is every bit as wonderful as the second volume – maybe even better, as it features lots of very obscure tracks, and even has some unreleased material too – packaged with a big booklet of notes, and 53 tracks by artists who include High Tide, Tear Gas, Stray, Wicked Lady, Budgie, Stack Waddy, Leaf Hound, Love Sculpture, Dogfeet, NSU, Tear Gas, Edgar Broughton Band, Atomic Rooster, Stone The Crows, Little Big Horn, Tarsus, Natural Gas, Hard Horse, Lightyears Away, Tongue, Sunday, Mouse, Freedom, Sam Gopal, The Move, The Rats, and lots lots more!

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The real sound of the British underground at the end of the 60s – a stellar 3CD package that goes way beyond the oft-heard modes from the classic rock and progressive years! Sure, all the big names from those years are totally great – but they've also obscured the really rich tapestry of lesser-knowns who were working in London and beyond at the time – extremely inventive groups who work here in a blistering array of fuzzy, freaky, and mad mod styles! The book's got plenty of details on the 65 tracks included in the box set – more than enough info to help situate these really unique sounds, and no doubt start you digging for more in the future. Yet there's hardly any need to dig when you've got a set this great – a package that includes "Pretty Colours" by Deep Feeling, "Ebeneezer Beaver" by The Mirage, "Amanda Jane" by West Coast Consortium, "Love" by Shy Limbs, "Santa Lucia" by Respect, "Iridescent Butterfly" by Fat Mattress, "Story Book" by Alan Bown, "Just Another Day" by Neon Pearl, "I'll Be Late For Tea" by Blossom Toes, "Am I Glad To See You" by The In Crowd, "Busy Bee" by Tintern Abbey, "Fillin A Gap" by Paper Bubble, "Creation" by Beau, and "Hurry On Sundown" by Hawkwind Zoo.

VariousShapes & Shadows – Psychedelic Pop & Other Rare Flavours From The Chapter One Vaults 1968 to 1972 ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Really great work from an overlooked label – the short-lived Chapter One imprint, from the UK scene at the end of the 60s – a surprising powerhouse of pop psych at the time! The company was headed by Les Reed – who we love for his soundtrack and instrumental records – and although the notes aren't clear on the production credits, we're betting that many of these gems have Reed's helping hand in the studio – in ways that take all the good ideas of these small groups and solo artists, and push them forward with even more focus and flair – a bit like the way that jazzy John Cameron did with other British acts of the time. The music's never all-out fuzz, nor sugary pop – and it's also very different than US Sunshine Pop of the period – with perhaps a bit more masculine swagger and confidence overall. Titles include "Mozart Versus The Rest" and "Lucky Sunday" by Episode Six, "What's It All About" and "Your Turn To Die" by Putney Bridge, "Lifetime" and "Courtyards Of Castile" by The Bliss, "Bother John" by Brother John, "Lover's Congregation" by The Matchmakers, "You've Got Your Troubles" by The Californians, "Sharkey" by Christopher, and "Spring Never Came Twice" by Jason Cord.

VariousStrangers In The Room – A Journey Through The British Folk Rock Scene 1967 to 1973 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A tremendous overview of some really important years in British music – a period that sometimes gets overlooked, due to the huge explosion of psych, prog, and other styles – but one that's equally creative in its own sort of way! First off, forget the term "folk rock" – because although that's what this music might be, it's also very different than the pop folk modes that were big on the US scene in the mid 60s – as this folk rock scene instead represented a host of British musicians really retrenching, and finding their own sort of styles – sometimes borrowing bits from the ancient past of England, other times bringing forth a contemporary way of putting over a tune – at a level that might have gotten commercial and overproduced if these guys were working on the American west coast, but which instead has a nicely unadorned quality here. At a time when most American labels (and listeners) were really leaving folk music behind, these artists were able to often work free from the needs of a big commercial hit – and make genius music that's gone on to transform many minds over the decades. The set moves way past the obvious – and features a whopping 60 tracks in all, with lots of notes in the package – and even includes a few never-issued tracks as well. Includes work by Harvey Andrews, Jade, Michael Chapman, Andy Roberts, Mr Fox, Pentangle, Shirley Collins, Prelude, Heron, Mike Cooper, Paul Brett's Sage, Lifeblood, Dando Shaft, Canticle, Jeremy Harmer, Bridget St John, Al Jones, Bill Fay, Fairport Convention, The Woods Band, Matthew's Southern Comfort, The Johnstons, Beau, Richmond, Chimera, Spirogyra, and many others!

VariousTry A Little Sunshine – The British Psychedelic Sounds Of 1969 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1969. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The headiest sounds of the UK scene at the end of the 60s – a wealth of psychedelic tracks from the years when the new mode had really taken flight – and could no longer be confused or criss-crossed with other styles at all! Gone are the beat group tracks that have a bit of fuzz in the guitars, or the mod numbers that maybe use a bit of echo – and instead, just about all these numbers are fully-formed psych – from the instrumentation, to the lyrical conception, to the overall production – which usually really trips things out! As with the previous volumes in this series, the track selection is as superb as the presentation – which features 73 tracks in a 3CD box, along with a huge booklet of notes that really illuminate the many singers and groups in the package. A huge journey through space and sound – with work by The Factory, Shy Limbs, Bill Fay, The Freshmen, Tuesday's Children, Shere Khan, Trader Horne, Writing On The Wall, The Orange Machine, Pan Pipers, Grapefruit, Sam Gopal, Scrugg, Tapestry, Colin Giffin, Mar Brierly, Strawberry Jam, The Bliss, Wild Silk, Consortium, Paper Bubbl, Pussy, Fresh Air, The Sorrows, Jason Paul, Peter Howell & John Fernando, Procol Harum, 1984, The Deviants, The Orange Bicycle, Jason Crest, and many more.

✨✧ SecretsInfatuation – Singles & Demos 1966 to 1968 ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work from The Secrets – a UK group that features early contributions from later singer/songwriter Clifford T Ward – but in a style that's much more group-oriented overall! Ward's already a hell of a songwriter – and loads of the cuts here are under-discovered nuggets that sparkle at a level that only a rare few Brit records of this time can do – sweet, but never poppy – clever, but never too much so – and often with a heartfelt, emotional candor that we might link to the best by The Hollies and Zombies. And in fact, there's an instant charm here that definitely recalls Hollies at their best – a way of doing a heck of a lot with just a little, and really bringing forth special qualities in the tunes without resorting to overdone gimmicks or studio interference – although the production here is pretty darn groovy too. The collection features loads of singles from the group, plus rare demos and unreleased tracks – all with richly detailed notes in the best Cherry Red tradition. Titles include "Infatuation", "She's Dangerous", "Such a Pity", "I Suppose", "Sympathy", "I Think I Need The Cash", "The Gloria Bosom Show", "Looking Down The Glass", "The Same Applies To You", "Teacher", and "I Intend To Please".

Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great imagined album from The Action – one that brings together some of their grooviest singles of the mid 60s! The work here was produced by George Martin, but it's got a much rawer edge than his work with the Beatles – perfectly formed, but with this mod socking energy that's wonderful – about five cuts above the usual British rock of the time, with a potential that has us wishing these guys had kept together long enough to really explode in the 70s! But, as with The Creation, the great thing about The Action is that they were around for such a short time – but made some completely top-shelf tunes in the process – as you'll hear on "Never Ever", "The Cissy", "I'll Keep Holding On", "Hey Sah Lo Ney", "Baby You've Got It", "Wasn't It You", "Something Has Hit Me", and "Twentyfourth Hour".

✨✧ Alexis KornerEvery Day I Have The Blues – The 60s Anthology (3CD set) ... CD
Sanctuary/Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic 60s material by Alexis Korner – a completely unique British artist that we'd rank right up there with the best by Georgie Fame or Zoot Money! Like Fame and Money, Korner was strongly influenced by American sounds – particularly blues, but also a range of jazz, soul, and gospel too – which he started out initially aping, then soon moved the music into something that was very much his own! Korner's too often written up as a blues musician – but like the hippest mod moments of the mid 60s in London, his music quickly moves way past the familiar styles, and opens the door to something very new and groovy – but also never going to straighter rock modes, ala The Rolling Stones or Manfred Mann. This overstuffed 3CD set brings together so many great moments from Korner's early career – not just album tracks and singles, but also some BBC recordings, and other obscure tunes – all packed in a box that features 69 tracks and a big booklet of notes!

The complete recordings of The Action – a UK group that we'd put right up there with early work by The Who, and everything done by The Creation at the same time! Like both of those famous combos, these guys start out in mod territory, but already seem to be pushing forward for something new – maybe an echo of psych to come, although these guys never lasted long enough for that scene – or maybe just this richer, deeper approach to songwriting and performance that was never just content to copy American modes of the period! These guys grow a hell of a lot over the course of four short years – as you'll hear here, on 86 tracks that include their Parlophone masters, the lost Rolled Gold material from 1967 and 1968, unusual stereo tracks and other rare material recorded at Abbey Road, BBC live tracks, and even a number of unusual singles and side projects too. The whole thing comes in a great book-styled package – with graphics as groovy as the music, and lots more information too! CD

Ace (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 21.99
The fourth fantastic chapter in this wonderful trip through the 60s – headed up by author Jon Savage, as a great soundtrack to his documents of the time! If you know Savage at all, you'll know to expect something different and fresh – an unusual take on the period, and one that goes way past the chart hits and overplayed oldies – to instead uncover currents of cultural activity at a much deeper level! And sure, there's a number of familiar songs here – but they're mixed with lesser-known gems, and presented in this great double-length package that features 48 tracks in all – all with notes from Savage himself. Titles include "Talkin About The Good Times" by Pretty Things, "Eastern Organ" by Brother Dan All Stars, "Hard To Handle" by Otis Redding, "Freedom Train" by James Carr, "Say It Loud (part 1)" by James Brown, "Omnibus" by The Move, "Sunshine Help Me" by Spooky Tooth, "Everydays" by Buffalo Springfield", "How Does It Feel To Feel" by The Creation, "Dear Delilah" by Grapefruit, "Machines" by Lothar & The Hand People, "Tomorrow Street Puzzle" by Fairport Convention, "I Got A Line On You" by Spirit, "Kick Out The Jams (preview pressing)" by MC5, "World In A Jug" by Canned Heat, "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams, "Honey Chile" by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, "Danse A La Musique" by The French Fries, "Israelites" by Desmond Dekker, and "Why Does It Feel So Right" by The Shades Of Jade.

A long-overdue follow-up to Yoko Ono's famous book Grapefruit – and like that one, a book that's full of artistic concepts and ideas that link back to her important early role in the Fluxus movement! This book has more images than Grapefruit – and is partly a showcase for black and white sketches – but it's also filled with the sorts of short artistic instructions that made that earlier volume so great – often showing a wit that Yoko doesn't always exhibit in any of her other creations. There's a Zen quality to some of the instructions, and maybe a bit less biting social commentary than before – but the whole thing is key proof that Ono's continued to be a hell of an artist, even through years when her fame maybe eclipsed her creations.
