Ennio MorriconeExorcist II – The Heretic (florescent green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 29.99
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to orchestrations that nobody else could touch – a redemptive sound which is then mixed with some much darker elements underneath – including some rough percussion, spooky voices, and other earthy touches that really stir things up. In fact, the overall effect of the record might scare you a lot more than the film – especially if you played it alone at home, late at night, with the lights off, and your head spinning round! Titles include "Great Bird Of The Sky", "Little Afro-Flemish Mass", "Regan's Theme", "Pazuzu", "Night Flight", and "Exorcism". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition florescent green vinyl pressing!)

✨✧ West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Volume 2 (mono) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The amazing second album from this ultra-cool group – a set that's even weirder and wilder than their debut! The trio are maybe one of the few who really live up to the farthest expectations of the psych generation – as they're really open to let their minds fly in their choice of lyrics, instrumentation, and overall presentation of the record – which hardly seems the sort to yield any sort of singles at all, even though a few of the tunes are downright catchy! Instead, the whole thing's put forth as a dark statement on late 60s society – with a sound that's as heavy as the subject matter, and not afraid to really pus all the freak and fuzz as far as it can go! Quite surprising, even for the Reprise label – and tracks include "Queen Nymphet", "Tracy Had a Hard Day Sunday", "In the Arena", "Smell of Incense", "Suppose They Gave A War & No One Comes", "Overture Wcpaeb (part 2)", and "Carte Blanche" – which supposedly they were given in recording the album! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono version – from the original master tapes!)

✨✧ Dead BoysYoung, Loud, & Snotty (yellow & red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of American punk rock – and arguably the greatest moment ever for the legendary Stiv Bators! The album's got an intensity that blows away most of the UK groups who were making waves in the punk scene at the time – a raw energy that's a closer link to the Stooges and MC5 than anything over on the other side of the pond. Produced by Genya Ravan, and featuring the tracks "Sonic Reducer", "All This & More", "What Love Is", "Caught With The Meat In Your Mouth", "I Need Lunch", and "High Tension Wire". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition yellow with red streaks colored vinyl pressing.)

✨✧ Dr JohnGris Gris (mono version – on colored vinyl) ... LP
Atco/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered from the original 1968 mono mix, and pressed at RTI on colored vinyl!)

✨✧ Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Checker/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of his at times – and the tracks are often nice and long, with more than enough room to make you feel like Phil Chess gave these guys plenty of space in the studio to hang out, and find the right way to interact. As much as we love Chess albums with short songs and a soulful punch, we really appreciate it when they can break format and open up on a session like this – which really helps create a unique moment on record! Titles include "Goin Down Slow", "Long Distance Call", "Sweet Little Angel", "Ooh Baby & Wrecking My Love Life", and "Spoonful". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited colored vinyl pressing.)

✨✧ Etta JamesEtta James Rocks The House (colored vinyl – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Argo/Jackpot, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Searing stuff – easily one of Etta James' greatest albums! The set is a non-stop jam, recorded live at the New Era Club in Nashville before a small and screaming crowd – a perfect performance all the way through, one that showcases Etta as she rarely sounded on vinyl during the 1960s. The whole album runs away like a train on fire, and it's filled with incredibly lively readings of tracks like "Something's Got A Hold On Me", "Baby What You Want Me To Do", "Money", "Seven Day Fool", and "Woke Up This Morning" – all taken at versions longer than the usual under-3 minute single takes! Also includes 3 bonus tracks not on the original LP releases: "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby", "All I Could Do Is Cry" and "I Just Want To Make Love To You". LP, Vinyl record album
(On blue colored vinyl.)

✨✧ Ken Kesey/Grateful DeadAcid Test (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jackpot, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic 60s happening committed to record – one of the famous "acid tests" by Ken Kesey – recorded over the span of 14 hours, and condensed to the space of a single album – featuring early work by The Grateful Dead, plus tape loops, harmonica solos, and lots of weird wordplay too! This is the kind of thing that had us scared to death of west coast hippies when we were kids – and for good reason, too – as the album really shows the depths of the mind when exposed like this – and almost has us thinking that despite any outdated aesthetics of the period, there's kind of a creepy power of magick lurking far below.

✨✧ Poison IdeaPick Your King (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jackpot, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The ferocious debut of Portland punk trailblazers Poison Idea! Pick Your King is a reference to the front and back covers – Jesus on one side, Elvis on the other – and the band tears through the 13 songs so fast, it was actually originally issued as 7-inch EP! It's all the better for the brevity, too, a gnarly hardcore blast from beginning to end. Timeless noise from a band that doesn't get enough credit for being one of the more influential Pacific Northwest underground scene generators of the 80s onward. Includes "Think Twice", "It's An Action", "This Thing Called Progress", "In My Headache", "Self Abuse", "Cult Band", "Last One", "Pure Hate", "Castration", "Reggae (I Hate)", "Give It Up" and "Think Fast". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited clear vinyl pressing – with the original cover art, plus stickers & insert!)

✨✧ SeicheDemo Press ... LP
Jackpot, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The "demo press" here gives it all away – as the record was never intended for formal release – and instead was a self-produced project by the musicians and the producer! The set was recorded at the end of the 70s, but has a vibe that's very different than most of the music from that time – progressive, but in a casual way – as befits the trio's look on the cover – a group that features Marc Levinson on drums, Tom Vess on bass, and Steve Zahradnik on guitar – with vocals from the latter two. All tracks are original, and handled with impeccable instrumentation – the sort that some major label would have taken, polished up, and made some clunky early 80s crossover record – but which is much more pure here. Titles include "Evidently Me", "Islands", "Dissonant Toys", "Medicine Man", "Good Mourning", and "In The Calm Of Your Eye". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes poster and download with the extra track "Larks' Tongues In Aspic Pt 2"!)

✨✧ WipersWipers (aka Wipers Tour 84) (flourescent pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jackpot, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Vintage live material from Greg Sage and The Wipers – played with that special intensity that made them such a crucial link in the American underground scene of the 80s – even if they didn't always get their due until many years later! There's a sound here that's almost a bridge between earlier Cali punk and some of the work that was beginning to emerge on the Homestead Records scene – imbued with a focus and intensity that's helped it stay relevant over the years, while so many of the group's contemporaries were falling into dated politics or gimmicky modes that quickly got old. Titles include "Window Shop For Love", "D7", "Now Is The Time", "Youth Of America", "Moon Rider", "Think About It", "Potential Suicide", and "Pushing The Experience". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition colored vinyl pressing!)

The rare first album from a heavenly Jamaican vocal group – the wonderful Pioneers, who have a rock-solid quality here that sounds even better with production from Joe Gibbs!

Titles include "Me Naw Go A Believe", "You'll Never Get Away", "Shake It Up", "Whip Them", "No Dope Me Pony", "Sweet Dreams", "Jackpot", and "Give Me A Little Loving" – plus two tracks by the Righteous Flames too.
