VariousSomething Weird's Greatest Hits (2018 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $25.99
Something weird, and something very cool too – a set that brings together a whole host of strange and unusual tunes from the glory days of exploitation cinema! These cuts are all from a time when the b-movie underground was playing it fast and loose – trying to get more folks into the theaters with some ultra-sleazy themes – which resulted in wilder music than you might have heard in movies just a few short years before! The package is presented by Something Weird – the video company who've reissued lots of these exploitation films over the years – and the package is kind of a "best of" their on-screen efforts – as it also includes some spoken passages from films, which further make the tunes sound great. The package is divided up into themes – Psychedelic Hippie Freak Out, Rock O Rama Go Go, Deliriously Demented Ditties, and Sleazy Swinging Sounds – with work by Johnny Hawksworth, John Barry, The Group, The Love Generation, Joe Bisko, Alan Hawkshaw, Lee Dowell, The Penny Arcade, Billy Lee Riley, Betty Dickson, John Gabriel, Neil Patrick, Meg Myles, and The Huntington Astronauts.

✨✧ Nicholas CarrasDate Bait (red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD & zine) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1960. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A great little soundtrack from trash maestro Nicholas Carras – not one of the bigger names in mainstream cinema scoring at the start of the 60s – but in a way that really lets him take off and get creative with a record like this! The album's got a leadoff rock tune, some jazzier charts – ala Elmer Bernstein – and a mix of dramatic orchestrations with moodier, mellower passages – almost currents of exotica at times, all put together to create more than enough drama away from the images on the screen! Titles include "Teen Bleus", "Vegas Express", "Jazz Chase", "Fight", "7D", "Lover's Reunion", "High Spot", "Bluesy Mysterio", and "Gang Stalks Rick". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD of the movie, and a zine too!)

✨✧ Nicholas CarrasHigh School Caesar (red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD & Zine) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1960. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A raunchy little soundtrack for this obscure juvenile delinquent film at the start of the 60s – done in a cool mix of modes that features plenty of rocking instrumentals, some sweet jazzy bits, and a few nice exotica tunes! For the music, it's almost as if composer Nicholas Carras was going through the trashbins at the bigger record labels – picking up the sorts of things that Liberty, Capitol, or Challenge might have left behind – and weaving them together as the perfect music for a film like this – definitely a cut above, and maybe even better than the sorts of rock music soundtracks of the time that featured bigger sorts of artists in the lineup. Most tracks are short, which makes the whole thing an even cooler pastiche – different than more formal soundtracks of the period! LP, Vinyl record album

Nicholas CarrasMr Peters' Pets (yellow vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A very cool soundtrack for a very weird movie – an early 60s nudie film, but one that's a fair bit tamer and sweeter than material from later in the decade! The focus here is on the music – which is surprisingly well-done, and mixes jazz with exotic currents – often with a lot more thoughtfulness than you might expect, at a level that puts some of the best tracks here right up there with the best early 60s Italian noir jazz classics. Nicholas Carras wrote and conducted – but there's a tenorist on the album that really makes the whole thing great, someone who can play with the depth of Plas Johnson at his best. Titles include the eleven-minute "A Happy Turtle" – plus "Jungle Duck", "Three Sporty Ladies", "Petey's Sweeties", "The Happy Animal", "Animal Ambrosia", and "My Little Shasta". LP, Vinyl record album
(On yellow vinyl – plus DVD of the feature film, and a bonus zine too!)

David Friedman/William Allen CastlemanSpace Thing (silver vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A really strange little sci-fi soundtrack – penned for a film that was billed as one of the first "adult" science fiction movies – even though it was relatively tame compared with bigger budget porn to come! The low-fi masterpiece was directed by David F Friedman – not to be confused with the jazz musician of a similar name – and the songs here are credited to William Allen Castleman, although the notes don't really feature any other credits at all! Some of the sounds are what you'd expect from both genres of the time – combined – the jazzy romping of sexploitation film, mixed with electronic elements all around the edges that situate things in space – although maybe in modes that aren't as perfectly conceived as Italian scores of the period. Still, the whole thing's pretty darn great – and titles include "Hammond Orgasm", "Had It Comin", "Staccato Swagger", "Back To Bass", and "Infinite Worlds". LP, Vinyl record album
(On silver vinyl – plus DVD of the feature film!)

✨✧ Space CatsSomething New ... LP
Rejoice/Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Weird and wild work from The Space Cats – a funk group from the clubbier years of the South African scene – but who work here in a lean style that's very much their own! The group's led by a bassist, and has some fantastic basslines right up front in the mix – driven by both drums and percussion, and layered with keyboards that are often very basic and hypnotic – not the electro modes of bigger, tighter acts of the time – but instead often this very thin current of electricity in the middle, sounding equally great on the instrumental and vocal tracks in the set! Most of the tunes are a click or two slower than the usual clubby work of the time, too – which further adds a unique quality – and titles include "Mother Earth", "Your Eyes Are So Sad", "Masambeni", "The Dead Of Night", "Something New", "Mystery", and "Ukhamba".

George FreemanNew Improved Funk ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
The title certainly gets it right – as the album's one of the funkiest ever from guitarist George Freeman, and one of the few to really hit that messed-up groove he was working in the clubs before his mid 70s retreat to Chicago! The style here is often all over the map – a mix of soul jazz and funkier numbers, but often served up with less of the direction than you'd get on Prestige, and even less of that on Groove Merchant – more in a raw small combo mode, with Freeman's guitar hitting plenty of raspy notes and weird solo excursions that keep even the mellower tunes exciting! The record features 2 different groups – one with John Young on piano, the other with Bobby Blevins on organ – and brother Von Freeman plays tenor sax on the whole set, although not nearly in the spotlight as George! (Definitely in keeping with something that Von told George many years back – quoted to us by George – "When you've got your own album, make sure that people know that you're the star!") Titles include "New Improved Funk", "Daffy", "Happy Fingers", "Confirmed Truth", "Guitar Lover Man", and "Big Finish". CD

✨✧ Harley HatcherWild Wheels ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A weird batch of folksy rock tunes – composed and produced by Harley Hatcher for Sidewalk Enterprises, and sounding a lot more like a Sidewalk or Tower soundtrack than something on RCA. The groups are the usual obscurities that would show up on a Mike Curb soundtrack – pictured on the back cover, but still leaving us to wonder if they really existed at all. Tracks include "Holiday Rider" by The Saturday Revue, "Jailer Let Me Go Home" and "A Hurt In My Heart" by Don Epperson, "Playin Hard To Get" by Billie & Blue, and "Wine Women & Song" by Terry Stafford. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cut corner.)

Rita LeeAtras Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade ... CD
Polydor (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $15.99
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa".

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 ... $18.99
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

Roxy MusicRoxy Music ... LP
Atco, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A mindblowing debut from Roxy Music – a record that took the world by storm in the 70s, and which is still pretty darn revolutionary all these many years later! Sure, the cover looks a bit cheesy and trashy, but the core of the music is amazing – this blistering array of guitars, electronics, and saxophone – all honed into songs that provide the perfect setting for the haunting vocals of Bryan Ferry! If you only know these guys from their later, softer work, you'll be quite surprised here – as the saxes by Andy Mackay are woven right in alongside the guitar of Phil Manzanera, and the album's laced with weird electronic and tape touches from Brian Eno. Peter Sinfield produced – as yet another mighty talent that was part of the proceedings – and titles include "Re-make/Re-Model", "Ladytron", "If There Is Something", "HB", "The Bob", "Chance Meeting", "Would You Believe", "Sea Breezes", and "Bitters End".

Sex PistolsGreat Rock & Roll Swindle ... LP
EMI, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
The soundtrack to the Sex Pistols quote/unquote documentary The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle – a crazy mess of Pistols odds, ends and quote/unquote hits – including Sid's crazy-as-hell take on Sinatra, the weird quote/unquote French version of "Anarchy In The UK" and miscellaneous errata. Definitely one of weirdest chapters of Sex Pistols lore, which kind makes it a necessity! Includes "Johnny B Goode", "Road Runner", "Anarchy In The UK", "Substitute", "Lonely Boy", "God Save The Queen", "You Need Hands", "Black Arabs", "Silly Things", "Something Else", "My Way", "The Great Rock 'N'Roll Swindle" and more.

✨✧ Del ShannonDrugstore's Rockin – Two Silhouettes ... CD
Big Top/Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Vintage work from the great Del Shannon – a singer who came along when rock and roll was maturing a bit at the start of the 60s – and a talent whose pop placement on the chart sometimes obscured the deeper currents in his music! Del Shannon's a bit like Dion – known for a few big hits, but also a songwriter with a lot more going on too – including an ability to be open with his sense of melancholy, in ways that are maybe a precursor to territory that would soon be explored by Brian Wilson with The Beach Boys. Shannon never had the later, unusual years that Dion got – and which have gotten that second singer more nods from the critics over the decades – but this well-chosen set really shows that Del's got something special going on, and not just those weird organ lines that were often used next to his vocals. As always with Bear Family, the package and presentation are wonderful – and titles include "Froggy", "Hey Baby", "Now She's Gone", "The Search", "Ginny In The Mirror", "My Wild One", "Little Town Flirt", "Torture (version 1 inst)", "Hats Off To Larry", "The Wamboo", "The Swiss Maid", "Dream Baby", "Move It On Over", "You Never Talked About Me", and "His Latest Flame".

✨✧ Los Vidrios QuebradosFictions ... CD
RCA/Lion, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most striking groups we've heard from the Chilean scene of the late 60s – a quartet who have the groovy garagey sound of their contemporaries, but also manage a darker style overall! The lyrics are in English throughout – something the band always insisted on – but sung in a weird style, and they've got this stark quality that really goes with the skittish guitar on the tunes – played in ways that are a lot less derivative than some of the other South American combos of the period – with a freshness and economic use of psych that links Los Vidrios Quebrados much more strongly to the best London groups of the post-mod years. Tunes are all originals, and pretty darn great – and titles include "Concierto En La Menor Opus 3", "Palabras Y Palabras Y", "Las Dos Caras Del Amor", "En Tu Miranda", "Oscar Wilde", and "Ficciones".

Four Flies (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Two sweet funky tracks from Braen & Raskovich – a mysterious studio duo that features some extra-heavy drums from Giuliano Sorgini! The drums alone here are great – but they're also topped by a weir spooky keyboard that's billed as a "Hammond C3" on the cover – something that we're not sure is a typo or not – but which makes these wonderfully weird, thin lines on both tracks! Alessandro Alessandroni plays guitar and bass – the latter with a nicely heavy groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ FallRoom To Live – Undilutable Slang Truth! ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The greatest album ever by the Fall? We're always tempted to say so – because there's something here so perfect, so focused, it's hard to think of a better album to illustrate the genius of Mark E Smith! The rhythms are weirder, the lyrics more poetic, and the guitars a bit more razor sharp than before – yet the record's also not going as easily for the catchy hooks and clever turns of phrase that would take a bit of steam out of the whole Fall sound in years to come. Darkness, but delivered with a smirk – and a record that still brings us limitless joy today! Titles include "Joker Hysterical Face", "Hard Life In The Country", "Marquis Cha Cha", "Room To Live", "Papal Visit", and "Solicitor In Studio". LP, Vinyl record album

Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some mighty fierce, almost freaky guitar starts out this rare gem from Gloria Ann Taylor – before these weirdly exotic strings come in and warm things up, then set a course for Taylor's vocals to follow! Guitar returns strongly for this nice trippy solo in the middle – and really makes the track something unique! "Brother Less Than A Man" has a nicely righteous vibe – congas with the rhythms, and this gospelly lead from Gloria right at the start – before soaring into the fierce, powerful groove of the cut – which almost feels like one of Archie Shepp's more spiritual experiments from the early 70s – but with heavy guitar instead of tenor! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Red vinyl pressing!)
