Doris NortonNorton Computer For Peace (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Durium/Mannequin (Germany), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Doris Norton really moves out of the sound library shadows with this mid-80s set – a record that's got lots of tight electro-soul grooves – served up with plenty of beats, Roland keyboards, and even a bit of vocoder material as well! Doris works alongside Antonious Rex – who did more of the non-digital side of the record – and the duo create tight tracks in Doris' sound lab that would be right at home in some 80s action soundtrack, and maybe even as beats for the linoleum crowd on the streets! Titles include "The Hunger Problem In The World", "Don't Shoot At Animals", "Warsawar", "War Mania Analysis", and "Iran No Ra". LP, Vinyl record album

Kim FowleyLord Of Garbage (paperback) ... Book
Norton/Kicks, 2012. New Copy ... $10.99 13.95
Kim Fowley, an author? Stranger things have happened – and given Fowley's penchant for putting his finger in just about every pie that came within reach, the whole thing's no surprise at all! The book is a stunning account of Fowley's important years in the music business – working in the sometimes lowest reaches of the LA scene, yet sometimes hitting the highest heights too – all told in really interesting detail, with a pacing that's completely unique! At lots of points, it kind of feels like Kim's telling you the story of his life over a few dozen drinks at the bar – with all the tangents you might expect – but at other times, there's this lucidity that's right in line with the Fowley genius in the studio – that way of being and going crazy while still holding all your cool – summed up perfectly in these few lines near the end of the book: "Well this is my version of what happened to me. I don't know if it really happened or not, but I think it did. I'm holding back a lot of stuff because it's too overwhelming in its darkness and it would be a sad read." Book

Mighty HannibalHannibalism ... CD
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99
An excellent collection of work by Mighty Hannibal – aka King Hannibal, aka Hannibal – a great soul singer from the sock-boogaloo late 60s years! At his prime, Hannibal recorded some excellent singles that have a finger-popping funky feel – very tight combo instrumentation mixed with raspy vocals that have more than a bit of a southern touch at the bottom. This set brings together much of his best work, complete with excellent self-penned liner notes on his rocky career, with great details that get at the heart of the life of an indie soul singer back in the day. Titles include "Get Back", "Fishin Pole", "Hymn No 5", "Jerkin The Dog", "Good Time", "Get In The Groove", "Get Back", "Shame Shame", "Trying To Make It Through", and "The Truth Shall Make You Free".

New York DollsHard Night's Day ... CD
Norton, 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the first recordings ever made by the New York Dolls – a blistering session of 21 demos that were all cut in one night during March of 1973 – creating the sound that formed the blueprint for their classic albums to come! The vibe here is maybe what you would have heard, had you caught the group at one of their legendary Mercer Arts shows – as the tunes are raw, noisy, and effortlessly blend early rock and early punk energy in their performance! The group's got a very fresh sound – having just begun working with second drummer Jerry Nolan – and the guitars from Johnny Thunders and Sylvain Sylvain are razor-sharp throughout. Titles include "Jet Boy", "Looking For A Kiss", "Seven Day Weekend", "Frankenstein", "Who Are The Mystery Girls", "Showdown", "Bad Girl", "Pills", "Personality Crisis", "Don't Start Me Talkin", "Lonely Planet Boy", "Subway Train", "It's Too Late", and "Bad Detective".

Sun Ra & OthersRocket Ship Rock ... CD
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99
Wild and wooly Rocket Ship Rock from Sun Ra and his Arkestra – featuring shout blues vocalist Yochanan – often billed as "the man from outer space" and a cat who could give Screamin Jay Hawkins a run for his money in the excitable oddball category – jumping 60s r&b with an interstellar theme, freaked out jazz, and unhinged genius from the Saturn vaults! Rocket Ship Rock features material that's the next stratospheric step from the early doo wop era recordings, with Yochanan coming unhinged without ever jettisoning his considerable charisma, on most of the numbers – including rare Saturn tracks, unissued and alternate and rehearsal takes – plus rare numbers other vocalists including Little Mack, Lacy Gibson and Ebah (both from the later 60s when Ra was going crazy for the Batman themes) and Don "Dino" Dean. Amazing spacey 60s soul & r&b with a wild eyed grit and the Arkestra in it's nicely gritty realm of the cosmos. Very well packaged by the folks at Norton, with nice liner notes, too. Titles include "Muck Muck", "Hot Skillet Momma", "Rocket Ship Rock", "The Sun Man Speaks", "Message To Earth Man" (#s 1& 2) with Yochanan, plus "Tell Her To Come On Home" feat Little Mack, "I Am Gonna Unmask The Batman" feat Lacy Gibson and an unissued version with Ebah, plus "Space Stroll" featuring Don "Dino" Dean.

Real KidsReal Kids (40th Anniversary pressing) ... LP
Red Star/Norton, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A fantastic slice of work from the Boston scene of the 70s – an overlooked group from the early years of punk, and one who might have gotten much greater acclaim, had they been part of the New York scene down at CBGBs! The Real Kids were formed by lead singer John Felice after parting ways with Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers – and it's almost as if Felice held onto all the punk promise of that other group in their early years, then fused it to a searing sort of sound that resonates strongly with the generation of Richard Hell and The Ramones – all served up here on one of the few albums issued by the Red Star label, also famous for issuing the debut record by Suicide. Titles include "Do The Boob", "Taxi Boys", "Better Be Good", "Solid Gold", "All Kindsa Girls", "My Way", "Roberta", and "Just Like Darts". LP, Vinyl record album

SonicsBoom ... LP
Etiquette/Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99
The Sonics Boom indeed – because back in the day, the group were easily one of the rawest, hardest, heaviest sounds to come out of the Pacific Northwest – and that's saying quite a lot, given their other company on the scene! This early full album for the Etiquette label has The Sonics blasting out at all their best – a mostly-noisy, guitar-driven, garage-drenched sound that also sometimes slides into surprisingly more soulful territory too! The group are way more than just another gritty garage combo – and have a rough-edged sense of excitement that easily matches some of the best early work of bigger UK groups of the 60s – especially given The Sonics' clear love for American R&B and soul. Titles include "Cinderella", "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark", "Let The Good Times Roll", "He's Waitin", "Louie Louie", "Jenny Jenny", "Don't You Just Know It", and "Shot Down". LP, Vinyl record album

Thee MidnitersIn Thee Midnite Hour ... LP
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Hard-wailing grooves from Thee Midnighters – a great link between garage rock and Latino soul in mid 60s Los Angeles! The group have a sound that nicely bridge that gap between the Sunset Strip and some of the lesser-known acts of the East LA scene – a style that's got plenty of garagey guitars in the mix, but which also brings in some fairly soulful vocals as well – a blend that helped Thee Midnighters cross over big back in the 60s, and which still sounds plenty powerful today! This tasty set features some of the group's best singles on the Whittier and Chattachoochee label – with tracks that include "Whittier Blvd", "Jump Jive & Harmonize", "Love Special Delivery", "Gloria", "Welcome Home Darling", "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", "Empty Heart", "Looking Out A Window", and "Thee Midnite Feeling".

A socking soul party – and a wonderfully done set of work by Detroit underground singer Gino Washington! The album's a kickass bunch of hard soul tunes – a perfect 60s soul party with loads of great numbers that show Gino at his best, rolling with an upbeat sound that's made him a favorite of collectors for years and which should have made Gino a lot bigger back in the day. This is raw raw raw soul – wonderful throughout, and packaged with great notes on the material! Features a number of unissued tunes, too – with titles that include "Hey I'm A Love Bandit", "Everything Is Di Jo Be", "I Gotta Move On", "Like My Baby", "Rat Race", "Doing The Popcorn", "Singing In The Rain", and "Foxy Walk".

A treasure trove of lost soul from Detroit legend Gino Washington – a hard-hitting singer with a really wonderful sound! Gino may not be as well known as some of his Motown 60s contemporaries, but he's a heck of a singer in the harder side of the Detroit sound – working here with upbeat Northern soul tempos, but singing in a heavy vocal style that bears equal traces of the Memphis scene. This set is filled with some of his best work – scattered across rare singles from years, and finally compiled here with a great set of notes! Titles include "Around The Town", "Out Of This World", "Come Monkey With Me", "Do The Frog", "What Can A Man Do", "I'm A Coward", and "Do You Have That Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Andre WilliamsSweets & Other Stories (paperback) ... Book
Norton/Kicks, 2009. New Copy Book ... Just Sold Out!
Iceberg Slim, eat your heart out! Andre Williams finally has a book of his own – a set of late life writings that are surprisingly great! The work came out of a post-rehab effort to get his thoughts down on paper, but without putting them in song – and the material is surprisingly compelling, a side to Andre that we never could have imagined at all – especially in more recent years. The whole thing's put together with the look and feel of a vintage paperback – no surprise, given Kicks/Norton's love of the format – and the book contains one long work of fiction by Williams, a shorter story, and even some poetry too. The work has a surprising focus on female main characters – not what you'd expect from Andre – and that really surprised us, given the direction he could have gone (although former Williams fans, don't worry – things can get pretty raunchy at times!) Nick Tosches gives Andre some key props in the foreword, too! Book

As revered as Sun Ra is, was, and will forever be as one of the great avant garde bandleaders and all around musical innovators of the 20th Century, his work as an Afro-futurist poet is overlooked. This book aims to change that, but not in a precious way at all. It's sort of presented as a fun little pulp paperback. Includes a nice forward by Amiri Baraka and an intro by science fiction historian Bhob Stewart, who does a terrific job of detailing Ra's 60s poetry and his quite genuine relevence in that realm!

Norton, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really early genius from The Sonics – and the kind of music that reminds us why the legendary group still continue to sound so wonderful after all these years! The Sonics had an edge that was different than most of their contemporaries – definitely honed on plenty of influences from earlier rock and R&B, but also letting loose with a kind of frenzy that not only made them one of the most stunning acts of the early garage psych years, but which continued to get the group plenty of interest once punk rolled in too. The highlights here might well be the group's standout originals – "The Witch", "Psycho", and "Strychnine" – worth the price of admission alone – but laid out here next to other great cuts that include "Do You Love Me", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Boss Hoss", "Money", "Walking The Dog", Nighttime Is The Right Time", and "Dirty Robber".

Yeah, THIS is the Nick Tosches we want! Tosches has a way of chronicling the diseased, mobbed up underbelly of the 20th Century music rackets that's simply unrivaled – it's gut level brilliant and street smart writing like no one does anymore. Save The Last Dance For Satan is a more fleshed out and newly spun continuation of material published more than a decade ago as Hipsters And Hoodlums, in Vanity Fair magazine (boy, mainstream magazine content sure has changed a bunch since 2000) – chronicling the sleaze and criminality at the core of the 50s & 60s music biz. It's great! His best stuff has often read with the sweaty, intoxicating allure of seedy pulp storytelling, so it's an utmost pleasure to see his work put out by Kicks Books - which literally puts Tosches' work in just that kind of old school hip pocket paperback! He joins Andre Williams (whose "Jailbait" single is mentioned early in this book as the badass antidote to mid 50s candy-coated rock & roll that it most certainly was) and Sun Ra at Kicks. A couple of Tosches' more recent books have been a tough slog – more about his own near obsessive search for impossibly hidden subjects than anything else – but this slim 120 page tome is the opposite – it has us slobbering for more.

This amazing series does a great job of making Mike's music live again – combining rare singles with a few radio spots too – and packaging the whole thing will full notes on Mike, the Pittsburgh scene, and the rich array of record stores and radio stations that allowed music this great to exist! Titles on this third volume include "Firewater" by Premieres, "Strollie Bun" by Blonde Bomber, "Malanese" by Avalons, "Monkey Man" by Baby Huey & The Babysitters, "The Birds" by Motivations, "Oo Ma Liddi" by JJ Jackson & The Jackals, "Cotton" by Duvals, "Come On Back" by Big Syl Barnes, "Zebra" by Youngsters, "Done Done The Slop" by Ervin Rucker, "Cherry Juice" by Marino Choice, "The Hunch" by Mad Mike & The Maniacs, and "Uncle John" by Wild Child Gipson.

✨✧ Harlan EllisonPulling A Train – Violent Stories Of Naked Passions (paperback) ... Book
Norton/Kicks, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gritty prose from the legendary Harlan Ellison – a writer known best for his science fiction work, but who's represented here by some very early material that's plenty violent and salacious! The writing should be taken in the spirit of the title and cover – and Harlan himself does a great job of situating the work in his introduction to the book – telling the tale of the somewhat sleazy roots of this read, which is almost as titillating as the stories themselves! Yet despite the obvious apology for the schlock quality of the stories (some weren't even originally billed under Ellison's own name!) – there's a real force to the writing throughout – a youthful, powerful feel that bridges the gap between classic noir and underground exploitation – as you'll find in stories like "Sex Gang", "Jeannie With The Bedroom Eyes", "A Girl Named Poison", and "Both Ends Of The Candle".

Norton, 2009. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Dang! Hard-charging, yet masterfully played surfy/trashy/garagey guitar instrumentals for Christmas from Japan's Jackie & The Cedrics – who sound great, and get extra bonus points from us for reproducing a great ol' Trashmen holiday single for the pic sleeve! "Silent Night Rumble" is a slow, echoey, heavy Link Wray styled number. Their take on "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" is a fast moving instro stormer, though! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The cover looks vintage, but the cuts are contemporary – recent work from Detroit soul legend Nathaniel Mayer, including one especially nice Holiday number! "Mr Santa Claus" is one of the roughest, rawest Christmas tunes ever recorded in the 21st Century – a nice bluesy tune with guitar snaking behind Mayer's raspy lead vocals – served up here with "Ride In My 225", which is more of a straight rocking bit of R&B! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Some of the earliest sounds you'll ever hear from The Ramones – two early tracks, served up here in their original 1975 demo recordings! "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" is maybe a bit slower and rawer than the later take – but in a great way – and that quality explodes even more on "Judy Is A Punk" – which, for 1975, beats UK punk by a year! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Protopunk garage genius from The Sonics – tearing it up on a couple of raucous Christmas themed rumblers! "Don't Believe In Christmas" is a primordial, R&B fueled blast of greatness. "Santa Claus" is just as great, in which the boys antogonize Santa, telling the old man they want cars, girls and guitars, and he shoots back NOTHIN! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Shawn LevyDolce Vita Confidential – Fellini, Loren, Pucci, Paparazzi & The Swinging High Life Of 1950s Rome (hardcover) ... Book
Norton, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Italy was hit hard in the postwar years – as you've no doubt seen in the urban landscapes of neo-realist directors from the time – but the city of Rome was one of the first places to really bounce back, and was ablaze with new cultural activity during the 50s! The story of that scene and its rise is told in great detail here by writer Shawn Levy – who looks at directors, movie stars, designers, journalists, and other key cultural figures who helped shape the city at the time – a place that already sounds amazing enough for the nightclubs in the background of the story – much less the story itself! The book is 447 pages, hardcover, with some photos – and is a narrative that's every bit as interesting as the Fellini film for which it's named! Book

✨✧ Sun Ra & OthersInterplanetary Melodies – Doo Wop From Saturn & Beyond Vol 1 ... LP
Norton, Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Doo wop era spaceways travel from Sun Ra and soulful mid 50s vocal recruits – including The Cosmic Rays, Crystals, Nu Sounds and Juanita Rogers – a motherlode of rarities and never before issued recordings! Interplanetary Melodies includes doo wop numbers of earthly concern, and space theme tunes, and it's jaw dropping that such top notch recordings were still deep down there in the vaults after the excellent earlier era Ra collections from the Atavistic and Evidence labels – and Norton's efforts here are just as wonderful! The vocals are excellent, with some straighter songs, that could have been huge hits numbers with some sweetness and soaring qualities – particularly the Cosmic Rays tunes, but others are more playful, spacey, with odder lyricism and rawer performances. Soulful harmonies or strange mannerisms, rollicking piano or eerie harmonium, it's fantastic stuff and essential early Sun Ra! Most tunes are culled from unreleased studio or home recordings from the vaults, plus a couple rare releases on Saturn and Pink Clouds, and titles include "Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie", "Bye Bye", "Somebody's In Love" (unissued home rehearsal) and more with Cosmic Rays, "Honey In The Bee Box" (unissued home rehearsal) with The Crystals, "Spaceship Lullaby" (unissued home rehearsal) and "I'm Through With You" (unissued home rehearsal) with Nu Sounds, "It's Christmas Time" by Qualities, "Teenager's Letter Of Promises" with Juanita Rogers and Lynn Hollings, "Tony's Wife" by Sun Ra and more.

KicksIssue 1 ... Magazine
Kicks, 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
The first issue of one of our favorite music magazines of all time – the legendary Kicks, a publication that was years ahead of its time when it first hit the racks in 1979! Kicks is an important precursor to current magazines like Mojo, Flashback, Ugly Things, and Shindig – and like those, it does a wonderful job of digging far far back in the past – and providing very rich, very thorough coverage on overlooked corners of rock and roll. This first issue is black and white, and production is more of a zine-style – but the issue is super-thick, and filled with writing by later Norton Records legends Miriam Linna and Billy Miller – on artists who include The Shaggs, Vince Taylor, Flamin Groovies, The Raiders, Keith Allison, and The Velvets – plus lots more great bits in shorter articles too.

✨✧ VariousWild Wild World Of Mondo Movies Music ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally cool little compilation – kind of the sonic equivalent of a night at the drive-in movies! The package digs through some really raunchy exploitation rock of the 60s – gritty garage tracks, freaky exotic numbers, and other rough-edged gems – then mixes the music with rare horror film trailers and movie dialogue from the time – creating a combination that's totally out of this world! There's a creepy feel to the whole thing – an edgey sensibility that goes way beyond the novelty mode you might expect – and which really gets at the eerie undercurrent that lingered in the farther reaches of film production during these glory days. The collection was first cooked up two decades ago, but it's just as powerful today – a must for any fan of the Norton, Kicks, Svengoolie, or Roctober side of the spectrum! Titles include "Shook Out Of Shape" by Carol Kay & The Stone Tones, "You Is A Rat Pfink" by Ron Haydock & The Boppers, "Twist Fever" by Arch Hall & The Archers, "The Lemon Grove Kids" by Don Snyder & Pee Wee Flyn, "The Bird's The Word" by Rocky Roberts & The Airedales, "She Devils Instrumental" by R Lewis Band, and lots more great stuff – including trailers from Girls From SIN, Maniacs Are Loose, Thrill Killers, Strange Rampage, Hypnovista, and lots more weird movies!
