PAUL ADOLPHUS: THE DAWN WIND (Shadoks re) NEW 420:-
350 numbered copies The Australian artist Paul Adolphus recorded the album in Kyoto/Japan. Incredible rare and sought after mellow folk psych album with beautiful songs and harmonies, like a Japanese version of EXTRADITION. From Japan, 1973.
ALICE COOPER: Pretties for you (Straight UK 69) Ex/Ex 2500:-
Way underrated Arizona psychedelic speed freak debut from 69. An unique item as it’s actually Signed by Alice Cooper on back and without a date which he rarely does now adays! He did this for me long ago more details if your really interested in the item. Rare UK original 1st pressing with the uncensored cover. Originally a commercial failure like the majority on this highly collectable Frank Zappa label. Quickly deleted. More often seen as a US import and most of them on Warner Brothers. This original British issue has the E. J. Day cover and the uncensored panties front cover. The ultra sensitive US market would not allow this cover to be seen without a sticker covering the girls knickers. –So most of these covers that surface are seen with a sticker cover-up or damaged where the owner’s tried in vain to remove the sticker to see what was beneath. Vincent Damon Furnier, better known to the world as Alice Cooper, a name initially given to just the band but adopted quickly for the band’s leader and vocalist. This debut album was a commercial flop, just scraping into the US charts briefly and selling a mere handful in the UK where few were even made and quickly deleted. Musically this is early acid-psych era Alice, sounding very different to the slick glam-rock-horror act they later became famous for.
ALICE COOPER: Schools Out + Alice Cooper Rolling Stone Scrapbook (WB US 71) tofcVg++/Ex 500:-
Original US 1st pressing on the green Warner Bros label, gimmick school bench cover and including the original paper panties insert. Great tracks and some strong psych flashes.

The book is in Vg condition but is missing the colour poster and one page with a cut-out picture unfortunately.

The Amazing: Wait for A Light to Come (Subkiminal Sounds) LP NEW 160:-
The vinyl is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide. Brand new recordings of Swedish Folk-Rock-Psych-Pop perfection. The Amazing fell far from the tree. A natural process: coming together through affection, then slowly crystallising into a folk-rock-psych-pop- collective slowly pushing, bending then playing with any preconceived notions of pop. Friends first and foremost, it’s this kindred spirit that imbues the band’s debut with a feeling unlike that of most releases – one of natural harmony, persistent progression and with a panoramic gaze fixed on distant settings. Their 2009 debut album has received unanimous critical acclaim worldwide. Some excerpts:
”the cream of Sweden's psychedelic/neo-folk underground…an album of rare beauty" MOJO 4/5 'Swedish underground supergroup’s debut suggests the dusty riches of some long-lost LP locked away in psychedelic folk-rock Valhalla.' SPIN "a sublime debut... genuinely an amazing album" UNCUT 4/5 "The Amazing's first is a gorgeously understated blend of gentle psychedelic pop, tranquil folk rock, and gently stoned prog" Q 4/5 "a classic case of strength in diversity, blurring the boundaries between folk-rock dreaminess and psych splendour" WORD
This is their follow up a new mini-album with an all-encompassing sonic soundscape of groovy electric folk rock, psychedelic pop and heavy jams. The core musicians in The Amazing are Christoffer Gunrup, Reine Fiske, who doubles as the lead guitar wizard in Dungen and who’s solos so furiously it’s as if something’s trapped inside him that must be turned into melody or he’ll burst into flames, Johan Holmegard (who doubles as the drummer in Dungen too) and Fredrik Swahn. The intimacy permeating through the collection intensifies itself steadily in the music they produce; swimming idly through the groups twisted melody, yet luminously anchored by Reine’s astral guitar. Elsewhere they forgo interstellar for a more bucolic revelry, built upon acoustic laments and a male and female vocal ripple that could only have spread itself outwards from Sweden’s forlorn beauty. With special guests including some of Sweden’s finest musicians; Gustav Ejstes (Dungen) and Moussa Fadera (Life on Earth!) amongst others, nothing on ‘Wait for a light to come’ is introverted or overworked – everything is balanced, kept together by natural melodies, soulful vocals and just how perfect should be. ‘The Amazing’ is a feeling, an organic consequence of something that effortlessly came together, the start of a quite extraordinary tale.
The Amazing: The Amazing (XMLP-SUB34 Subliminal Sounds) NEW 180:-
Vinyl LP limited 1,000 copies. The Amazing fell far from the tree. Empowered but not defined by the successes of previous output; the various members of Dungen. The Amazing, instead, is a natural process: coming together through affection, then slowly crystallizing into a folk-rock- psych-pop- collective slowly pushing, bending then playing with any preconceived notions of pop. Already receiving unanimous critical acclaim in Sweden, their debut album is an all-encompassing sonic soundscape of groovy electric folk rock, psychedelic pop and airy acoustic ballads. The core musicians in The Amazing are - Christoffer Gunrup (Swedish singer/songwriter extraordinaire ex Granada), Reine Fiske (lead guitar wizard in Dungen), Johan Holmegard (drummer in Dungen and Life on Earth!), Fredrik Swahn (prominent Swedish multi-musician in Dreamboy, Anna Jarvinen) - with the intimacy permeating through the collection intensifying itself steadily in the music they produce. ‘The Amazing’ is a feeling, an organic consequence of something that effortlessly came together, the start of a quite extraordinary tale.
THE AMAZING: Code II/To Skå and Back (Mexican Smmer US 09) M/M 150:-
Brand new and beautiful US only deluxe 10” release from the most amazing the Amazing! B-side is only available on vinyl on this release…. And it’s a killer of course with a searing loud fuzz guitar courtesy of Mr. Reine Fiske on top. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies only that will dry up quickly.
ARBETE & FRITID: Ur Spår! (MNW SW 75) M-/M- 300:-
Their 6th album and now with members from Parson Sound/Trad Gras och Stenar on board the music is now a pulsating drone of electric guitars with oriental fanfares. The album is one fantastic long jam. Right away the opening notes serves to confirm Arbete och Fritid as the real deal. I should say "note," a glorious sustained blur of brass and strings trembling with the potential to go anywhere.
ERIC ASCHAN: Två (Private SW 77) rw sobc Ex/Ex 500:-
Rare Swedish loner folk from a troubled mind.
BABY GRANDMOTHERS 2xLP (Subliminal Sounds SUBLP20) NEW 200:-
Limited 2 x LP vinyl edition of 500 copies. Baby Grandmothers were a short-lived Swedish band, but one of the most prolific and unique psychedelic, modal, experimental power-trios to emerge out of the Scandinavian psychedelic underground-scene in 1967. Although hailing from Stockholm, Sweden they only released a single in Finland, which has since become one of the most sought after pieces of vinyl from the era. Baby Grandmothers were formed out of the legendary R&B / beat band T-Boones in the summer of 1967. T-Boones are probably best known for their “At the club/King of the Orient” single which is one of the best, and most collectable, out of the Swedish garage beat-era. Guitar-wiz Kenny Håkansson joined the band in 1965and with the group down to a trio they drifted into the psychedelic sounds of the time and in August 1967 released the single “I Want You”, which definitely was the first hard-rock recording ever made in Sweden. The band was then re-christened Baby Grandmothers by the co-founder of the newly opened psychedelic club Filips, for which he needed a house-band. Filips was the legendary breeding ground for bands such as Hansson & Karlsson, Pärson Sound, as well as orgiastic all night jams with foreign luminaries such as Jimi Hendrix and the Mothers of Invention. Baby Grandmothers also supported Jimi Henrix on his Swedish tour in 1968 and then turned into Mecki Mark Men, who became the first Swedish rock band to tour the US. Founding member Kenny Håkansson went on to form the highly influential Kebnekajse, who created the Swedish electric folk psych sound. This unique collection brings live-recordings made at Filips, their impossibly rare single and a rare live recording made in Finland. Painstakingly collected and researched by Dungen’s guitarist Reine Fiske.
BARBARELLA OMPST (Hrkit re) M-/M- 180:-

BEACH BOYS: Wild Honey (Capitol UK 68) Ex/Ex 300:-
Rare UK rainbow rim original mono pressing with the original Brian Wilson mix.
BLESSED END: Movin’ On (TNS EU re) M/M- 200:-
Long out of print exact reissue. Cool and unique biker/Doors inspired private rarity . A put off too some as the juxtaposition of a vocalist and lyrics that are extremely melodramatic and overblown backed by a pretty crude garage band is pretty mind bending. Always dug it as a roadhouse psych lounge trip.
THE BLUE'S MEN - Prohibido Prohibir (Mystic Re) NEW 130:-
So you thought you heard it all? Well, I bet you haven't heard this one! The Blue's Men were from Argentina and their sole LP release is the rarest 60s beat/garage /weirdo release from over there. The Blue's Men's sound is great garage rock with deranged bursts of fuzztone guitar and bizarre lyrics (in English) with song titles like "The Day the World Fried My Brain" and "Reflections of a Sun Freakout"! This might lead you to think it's psych smaltz but no, no, no it's garage rock and deranged stuff from hell, with a lead singer sounding like Elvis o.d'ing on cough syrup! A one of a kind monster record you need real bad! 10" Ltd 500 copies.
BOHEMIAN VENDETTA (Mainstream US re) NEW 180:-
Exact repro of highly in demand US 60s garage psych. 180 Gram vinyl.
BOSTON TEA PARTY (Flick-Disc US 6?)srw woc Vg++/M- 300:-

BRAZILIA 70 AND THE CHICO LOPEZ ALL-STARS: South of the Border (Deacon UK 70) Ex/M- 220:-
Big fave with a collection of very smooth, very funky, brass-filled, upbeat lounge pop and some intense tracks like “Trouble Spot”, an obvious highlight with killer fuzz guitar and serious grooves, but there’s really not a bad track on here! Appears to be a Syd Dale library album and release on the UK budget label Deacon in 1970.
J.D. BRENNAN and GOLD FEVER: Stratosphere (Scyne US 89) M-/M- 700:-
J.D. BRENNAN + GOLD FEVER: Guitar Slinger (Scyne US 90) M-/M- 700:-
The two rarest and way most desirable by this amazing 50 year old "real people" rocker who manage to sneak in a powerful psychedelic edge to his echoed rockabilly twist, garagey hot guitars, loner vocals, barband sleaze, that only adds to the overall haunted lysergic feel. Mr. Brennan plays a mean guitar and sings and is backed by a full band called Goldfever. This is real emotional, the guy really puts himself on the line and sings and plays as if every note would be his last. The LPs were done in pressings of 200 copies only. Some copies were around 15 years ago but are now long gone.
BRIGADE: Last Laugh (Shadoks/Band n Vocal G re)M/M 450:-
Long out of print micro press numbered exact Shadoks deluxe reissue including a poster etc of impossibly rare US late 60s early 70s psych. Really strong but still underrated album.

Killer funk psych LP. Very rare original French pressing from 1972. Has minimal mark on label (sticker) no damage.
Cool private press lounge album. Here's a review of it from the new Acid Archives book: "Fun northwest lounge record highlighted by mixed vocals and a nice, homemade sounding production. Showing a good range, the minimalist band (led by organ) go from a dynamic "Goin out of my head/Night and day" medley and dramatic "Impossible Dream" to a perky vocal version of "Misty". The peak songs are a dreamy "Love is Gone" with reverbed female backing vocals (would fit on one of those proverbial twilight zone lounge collections) and an epic "Peace Medley" comprised mainly of Beatles songs, with a 'heavy' rap at the end. Circa '70 release, on the same custom label as The Forum, Dale and Vicki and Easy Chair. Good for collectors of the genre."
CHANGING TIMES: Introducing (Ramlo US) M-/M-245:-
Rare early 70s private press pop lounge jazz LP; with a nice open drum solo break. Cool songs as "Evil ways-Oye como va, etc.
CHILDREN: Death Tribe (Kemado US 08) NEW 80:-
Children is a trio that features Adam Bennati from Early Man on drums. They imagine they sound like ZZ Top, but they don't. It's more of a speed metal/prog kinda vibe, but sorta loose. This single features the 10 minute plus jam 'Death Tribe' on Side A and a wicked etching on Side B
CHIMNEY SWEEPS: Devil Girl (Norton US) M-/M- 150:-
For the first time on wax, here's a dozen crude, unissued 1966-67 garage recordings by Australia's answer to the Alarm Clocks, the truly remarkable Chimney Sweeps. These guys never boasted a release during their short "career" (they played maybe 15 gigs tops) and were totally unknown even amongst top Australian collectors until recently. The twelve sides include wild originals like Lies, Lies and the demented Cold Fish ("she ain't no gold fish!") plus three cool covers - their dragged-through-a-ditch take on the Rolling Stones' Grown Up Wrong must be heard to be believed! The big crunch is capped by a '66 stab at the title song by the Sweeps' earlier incarnation, the Cobwebs. Features a full band bio, whacked out group photo (the only one!) and a buzzin' dozen garage killers!
CHROMIUM: Star to Star (Infinity US 79) Ex/M- 220:-
Starting out a little odd here (well actually there’s a lot weirder listing further down…) Buggles related higher-key disco one-off with tracks like “Haunted Disco” setting the eerie mood. Really special one in the disco department….even advocated by the legendary NYC psych Mafioso Paul M.
CINCINNATI JOE & MAD LYDIA (River Witch US 71) srw Ex/Ex 1300:-
Legendary, special and unique higherkey "real people" LP that goes all over the map from psych to funk femme folkpsych all with their own perspective and filtered through a half empty Holiday Inn lounge vibe. Quit unexplainable but very enjoyable.
COMMON PEOPLE: Of the people/by the people/for the people (Capitol US re) M-/M- 180:-
Exact repro on vinyl of superbly moody album first released by Capitol in 1969. Produced by "LORD" TIM HUDSON (The Seeds, The Lollipop Shoppe) and arranged by DAVID AXELROD, it's a expertly blend of garage rock and orchestrated psychedelia, featuring a three-song opening salvo truly unlike anything else in pop/psych history.

CREEPS: ENJOY… (TOW SW 87) M-/M- 650:-
Autographed, coloured vinyl 226 only # copies. Very rare original pressing of legendary Swedish garage masterpiece. Was super rare already upon release 23 years ago as these special copies were only given/sold to friends.
DADAWAH: PEACE AND LOVE (Dug Out re) NEW 240:-
Dark, hypnotic, tripping nyabinghi from 1974. Led by Ras Michael over four extended excursions, the music is organic, sublime and expansive, drum and bass heavy (with no rhythm guitar, rather Willie Lindo brilliantly improvising a kind of dazed blues). Lloyd Charmers and Federal engineer George Raymond stayed up all night after the session, to mix the recording, opening out the enraptured mood into echoing space, adding sparse, startling effects to the keyboards. At no cost to its deep spirituality, this is the closest reggae comes to psychedelia. Previously squandered in an incongruous two for one reissue, now lovingly returned to its original, singular glory, restored at Abbey Road, with superfly vinyl in old school, hand assembled sleeves.
DEEP FEELING: Pretty Colours (S UK re) NEW €11.30
The first-ever vinyl release of the only tracks recorded by this legendary band. Formed from the ashes of beat band the Hellions in 1966, the short-lived Deep Feeling were one of the most adventurous acts of their time. Featuring Jim Capaldi (Traffic), Poli Palmer (Family), Luther Grosvenor (Mott The Hoople), Gordon Jackson (later to make a classic solo LP) and Dave Meredith, they wowed London audiences with their audacious brand of exotic proto-psychedelia, even backing Jimi Hendrix at his first UK gig. Tragically, however, Capaldi departed to form Traffic during the sessions for their debut (produced by former Yardbirds and Rolling Stones manager Giorgio Gomelsky), and the tapes were shelved. until now. The remarkable tracks make their first-ever LP appearance here, pressed on 180g virgin vinyl, together with demos made by Palmer and Jackson in 1967 and a song featuring the duo backed by the Blossom Toes, and come housed in a gatefold sleeve incorporating detailed notes and rare photographs.

Out of the ordinary and way rare soundtrack to a way 1965 underground surf film. The music is primarily folk, however, with singers Tim Morgon, Vicki Arthur (who does the amazing “Summertime Wine”), and some eastern style instro wanderings as well. Phil Pearlman of Beat Of The Earth was involved with the crew behind this, but does not appear on the actual LP, which was released on the same label as his first 45. A very special peak into a beachside beatnik late nite café scene.

DUNGEN: Skit I allt (Subliminal Sounds SUB-076-LP 2010) NEW 170:-
Pre-order now and we will ship it on the release day end of August, 2010. The vinyl release is a imited edition 1200 copies coloured deluxe vinyl LP. Sweden's Dungen sweetly return with a collection of gorgeous, dreamlike melodies, psychedelic stonkers and graceful, jazz-filled polyrhythms. called Skit I Allt. Says main man/ producer/ arranger/ singer Gustav Ejstes: “For me, it means, Don’t give a shit, forget about it, just go ahead and do it. A friend said: “Skit I Allt; Fuck it, do as you want, time is passing and it’s changing, forget fears and hang-ups, we are small and everything is pretty insignificant on the whole. How will it be? What shall we do? We often worry so much unnecessarily. Skit i allt, it’s happening now”. In what feels like a very short decade, Sweden’s Dungen has mutated at a furious pace. Main man/ producer/ arranger/ singer/ golden child Gustav Ejstes’s lone constant has been change. At ease with effervescent pop, third-eye popping psychedelia, heavy rock, spider-web folk and breezy jazz, Dungen’s dynamism astounds throughout Skit I Allt . Rather than remain only Ejstes’ studio vision, Dungen is a muscular full band now. Guitarist Reine Fiske, bassist Mattias Gustavsson, and drummer Johan Holmegard are fully integrated into Ejstes’ vision of Dungen: “Whether you perceive Dungen as a band or as me and my songs and my productions, the band is something totally free." I feel [the presence of the band] more than ever, because even if I am a total control freak they all contribute something unique make the songs come alive.” Dungen debuted in 2001 with an eponymous album of long psilocybic tracks and aural tomfoolery. The next year’s Stadsvandringar found Ejstes coming to grips with the language of rock before the zeitgeist-grabbing third album, Ta Det Lugt ignited the blogosphere so that it glowed like the aurora borealis. Not content to revel in such accolades, Tio Bitar flashed the band’s pop smarts as well as their incandescent freakouts while 4 put the band’s cohesiveness on display, at once gorgeous and biting. This latest album is the one that takes in everything they’ve done, and learned, and brings them to a whole.
DUNGEN: 4 (Subliminal Sounds SW 08 XMLP-SUB30) 180:-
LP clear vinyl limited edition 1,500 copies. Dungen's fourth studio album extends the acclaimed Swedish outfit's sound past psychedelia into something far more rare. Moving beyond mere stylistic concerns, 4 finds Gustav Ejstes' focus on the extremes of Dungen's sound separating into two entities. Blazing, raw guitar workouts have their own time and place, but now, so do stirringly orchestrated, jazz-cooled compositions with cinematic undertones. Bandleader Gustav Ejstes has made many allusions to his creative process as it likens to that of a hip-hop producer. On 4, that process is more evident than ever, both in the feel of each piece, and in the sense of intuition and control within the members of the group. New drummer Johan Holmegard joins guitarist Reine Fiske and bassist Mattias Gustavsson, while Ejstes steps away from guitar for the entire album, focusing on the piano as his lead instrument. Together, they have honed a classic and seamless sound, constructed with lavish studio flourishes and moving, narrative arrangements, and yet able to toughen up to tear veins of fierce blues-psych instrumentals up from the surface. The ten tracks on 4 comprise Dungen's most concentrated effort to date, beats surging forth and atmosphere changing as their sound continues to evolve. Every song here runs under five minutes, pushing the group to introduce confident melodies and arresting ambiance in tighter frameworks. Gauging from the results, this challenge has done them well. Included in this set are live favorite "Mina Damer och Fasaner," excerpts from a wild psychedelic jam session entitled "Samtidigt", and a storming, Northern Soul-influenced instrumental entitled "Fredag". These stand tall with some of the most fully-realized moments of Dungen's career; percolating prog-pop groover "Det Tar Tid" and eloquent opener "Satt At Se. With a penchant for lush pop portraits, and laced with orange sunshine guitar flash, 4 turns a page in Dungen's sound and story.

ENTHEOGENS: The Gnostic Mass LP (Xotic Mind/Subliminal Sounds 95 SW) Ex/M- 850:-
1 of 5 only white label test pressings. Has the insert. "Two long oriental esoteric jams with sitar, flute and percussion. This is a really psychedelic party where almost all of Xotic Minds members contribute. The improvisations that were recorded at Adam Axelzons home and at the Babalon Bar in Stockholm reaches orgiastic crescendos, especially the “Io Pan”, a primordial invocation to Pan, with polyrhythmical structures that grows and grows. Reminds one of such masterpieces as “Seven Ate Sweet” or “Taxim” by the mythical Kaleidoscope (USA). The Entheogens LP is a cleansing dip in a oriental acid distortion. A kind of record you seldom see nowadays." – Rockerilla, Italy. Personal fave of LP on the label; as appealing as any US private press monster. All of the label's talent gathered for extended tribal acid oriental jams, partly recorded live. Strange cult inspiration adds an eerie vibe. Never reprinted and hard to find. – Patrick ”The Lama”/The Lama Reviews
TOMAS ERNVIK: Små Låtar (Cymbal SW 71) Ex/M- 200:-
With insert. Cool xian underground album out of Sweden 71 by the guitarist from the legendary and amazing power trio Vatten. Released by the obscure Cymbal albel.
JEFF EUBANK: A Street Called Straight (Dorotehoe US 83) M-/M- 850:-
S/S copy was opened and checked for warps and played once. It’s flat and plays like new. Rare LP that has that special sound. Here’s what Acid Archives has to say but I think many of you, in to Bobb Trimble for example, will like it better.: “This singer-songwriter LP was discovered by collectors some twenty years after its release. Eubank was a bit later on the Kansas City scene than Michael Angelo and the great late-70s power pop bands that gave the city its reputation as a 70s pop haven. Rare record dealers will probably try to compare him to Michael Angelo anyway, because that's what they do every time they have a scarce singer-songwriter album that they don't know how to sell. This is better than most that fall into that bag, but it’s not particularly unusual; it’s folky in feel with about half of the songs being just voice and guitars (which are electric as often as they’re acoustic.) The album cover and some of the lyrics evoke outer space, and a couple of songs are very spacy in feel with echoed flutes, sound effects, martian voices, drony soundscapes and otherworldly falsetto vocals. “Kamikaze Pilot,” in particular, is excellent, the kind of song that would really turn heads if it was on a compilation. Eubank is a strong singer and the album is well-produced, but the solo songs drag and you’ll wish he went freaky more often or tried to rock out once or twice. For the most part, side two is better than side one, so stick with it despite the dull spots. If you’re a fan of mellow dreamy folk and folk-rock you’ll certainly like at least half of this album. It’s a shame, though, that there aren’t more hooks here and that the arrangements aren’t all as effective as on “Kamikazi Pilot."
SCOTT FAGAN: South Atlantic Blues (Atco US) cc rw Vg+++/Ex 300:-
Not a blues album but rare and practically unknown US major label psych LP with some very interesting weird moods from the Virgin islands with connections to Victor Brady.
FAPARDOKLY (G re) NEW 220:-
Fapardokly is regarded as one of the most important release in Merrell Fankhausers long career, and an absolute collectors item. The band recorded about 30 tracks in a small studio in Palmdale, California, from 1965 to 1967, when the owner of the studio decided to release an album with some of these tracks. With such different recording dates, you’ll find different sounds all blending together nicely; 60s pop, jangly folk-rock, psychedelia. a truly fantastic album that finally gets a legit vinyl reissue and with the original artwork. Comes with an insert featuring photo from Merrells personal archive, and liner notes by him as well.
FAR EAST FAMILY BAND: PARALLEL WORLD (P UK re) NEW 250:-
Unlike other albums where the Far East Family Band focused on Pink Floyd-esque psych ballads, on 'Parellel World' the influence of producer Klaus Schultze is more pronounced, merging prog rock with electronic music to create something rather weired and wonderful. Although Schultze oversaw the production of the album rather than playing on it (which he definitely didnt!), the synth star turn is Masanori Takasaki who was later to find new age fame and fortune under the name of Kitaro. This is space rock at its finest and the bands extended compositions attracted favourable comparisons with both Tangerine Dream and Pink Floyd, and even at times the vocal style of the Moody Blues. Unfortunately this was the bands last album but they went out on a high, achieving the rare feat of appealing to devotees of both Kraut Rock and electronic psychedelia alike.
FATHER YOD & THE SPIRIT OF '76 (Sagittarius US) NEW 250:-

At the time I was lead guitarist of the band " The Gentlemen "(a garage northwest that included Ze Ramalho (who released a wonderfull DLP together with Lula Cortez) in one of his line-ups and recorded a rare Lp and one 45).. For this unique project we invited Ze Ramalho the musician and composer Elsio Alexandrino (Golinha), to control the 4 channels tape recorders the musician Enilton Araujo, the 12 strings viola arrangements where done by Irapuan (Pupu), drummer Edmilson (Crauna), percussion by special guest Ze Crisologo and Hugo Filho nylon guitar,bass, keyboards and art direction". This LP is really special, Brazil charm and poetic words. Even in Brazil an incredible rare album, only 500 pressed given to friends and sold in shops, the first private pressing in this country. If Sacros, Lula Cortez, Mutantes and El Congreso is something you like, you will love this one. Lots of folk elements which devolves in twisted endings. Something you want to play to your new girl on a crazy summer night. And for your guys in NY with Brazilian roots (Arto Lindsay) this is something you should play on your next party.
FLAMINGO: Serenade (End US)ss srw toc Vg-/Vg 250:-
Decent copy of this rare and sought after LP. Smooth doo-wop masterpiece.
FOOD: Forever Is A Dream (Breeder AU re) M-/Ex 210:-
Long out of print xxact repro of this highly rated US, Chicago 1969 album. “Mysterious, wondrous masterpiece that most collectors dismiss as the little brother to the other Capitol monsters (Gandalf and Common People) when it’s actually the best of the three. Intensely emotional and dramatic; these guys had a vision and multiple listens begin to reveal its depth. String-laden ballads hold hands with fleeting blasts of power chords. Bits and pieces that seem to have no purpose blend together to create a surprisingly coherent whole. It’s hard to know if they even intended this to be a “concept album,” but it’s definitely a case of the whole being more then the sum of the pieces, good as the pieces are”. [AM] – Acid Archives
FORTUNE TELLER: INNER CITY SCREAM (A GR re) NEW 399:-
Fuzzy underground album recorded back in 1978, and released as a private pressing of 500 copies. The band formed in Baltimore, Maryland by Danny Amburn, John Holt, Joe Klimas, Mark Beyder and Bob Wells. Their album, heavy at places, is full of fuzz-guitarwork with 60's garage & british invasion influences and low-budget production (think of Boa or Shadrack albums) while a couple of songs have a wild and underground approach to rural rock. This album exists in a time warp. Its from the midst of the first punk era, but sounds genuinely 60s garage the way no neo-garage band ever did. The fuzz guitars are everpresent, and the songs are pure garage pop and garage rock, rocking hard without ever sounding remotely "hard rock." The sound is as cheap as can be, which only accentuates the coolness of the fuzz. Despite some awkward singing, there are a lot of catchy melodies here, and I can imagine that Baltimorians who discovered "Nuggets" in the late 70s went nuts over this band. A few songs flirt with rural rock, but basically its teen-sounding angst, just as cool as their punk peers. [AM] Taken from the Acid Archives. First ever official reissue, fully licenced by Danny Amburn and the band. Exact reproduction for the cover and labels. It includes extra 4-pages laminated insert with bio, lyrics and photos. PVC protective outersleeve. 180 g vinyl. 500 copies vinyl edition.

KELLY FRANKLIN (Sound Patterns US) cc ss Ex/Ex 700:-
Early '70s private press opens with a killer wah-wah and organ backed loner psych rocker which has this awesome phase shift bit at the end jam that is unreal...that track alone is worth it. Rest of LP mixes some rural rock moves with some southern vibed white funk soul psych break blends, some tracks use horns in a good way. "Rainbow Rider" and "Keep On Keepin' On" in particular head in that direction with a quite gritty but turned on twilight zone vibe, too. Other titles include "Wild And Young And Free", "The Sun Song", "Tomorrow Never Comes", "Sweet Ride"...comes in ultra obscure looking b&w cover with crude art of him and minimal info on back, On Sound Patterns label # KF-7402 with super thick disc. Earthy and turned on vibes here together. Only ever seen a couple of other copies over the years. Still in shrink.
FREEDOM OF RHAPSODIA: Vol 1 (Purnama Indonesia 72) Ex/Vg+++ 650:-
indonesia had an amazing 60s-70s rock scene that still has not been fully explored. Finding progressive albums from there in decent shape is extremely hard or practically impossible. This is the first and ultra rare album by this fantastic Indonesian psych prog pop band from 1972. Sonme tracks are sung in English.
FRESH MAGGOTS - Same (Radioactive re) NEW 195:-

FRIAR TUCK & HIS PSYCHEDELIC GUITAR (Fallout UK re) NEW 180:-
An oft-overlooked piece of the LA pop-psych jigsaw, this 1967 oddity combines typically complex vocal arrangements by the legendary Curt Boettcher with virtuoso guitar interludes from LA session legend Mike Deasy. Featuring backing from the team responsible for the landmark Millennium and Sagittarius LPs, its a truly deranged mixture of cover versions and originals that makes its long-awaited reappearance on LP here. Pressed on 180g virgin vinyl, its a simply essential purchase for all fans of sunshine pop and psychedelia
FROM BRITAIN WITH BEAT (Modern Sounds US) soc ss tobc Vg/G+ 200:-
Here‚s the absolute worst 60s British invasion, Beatles rip-off LP from USA. The sleeve is worth framing as it is so ridiculous. 4 guys in longhair wigs, guitars and drums goofing about in front of a brick wall. It is so phony you wont believe it. Rare.

Exact reissue of this sought after and killer album. “A real heavy bit of funk from this obscure European group. Recorded in the early 70s in Belgium its a tasty batch of Latin funk grooves, with a deep Afro-soul sound thrown into the mix, and some slight Chicano rock touches, like fuzzy guitar and heavy organ. The conga sound is right up front, and the tracks roll along with a nice heavy funk beat that cuts across from a lounge/library groove to a killing super deep percussion battering vibe. The groove is DEEP!!!”

Unknown early 70s Mexico/US special psych LP. Really good and solid find reminding me a little of the 2nd Laghonia LP. The record starts out a little uninspired but kicks in to gear on the 4th track which is an awesome instrumental and from there on everything is groovy. 60s trapping, fuzz guitars, swirling organs, a real find for anyone in to Latin psych rock.

BRUCE HAACK: Farad 2xLP (ST US re) NEW 220:-BRUCE HAACK: Hush Little Robot (QDK G re) M-/M- 220:-
Up until now, the legacy of BRUCE HAACK (1931-1988) has only existed in the quirks, glitches, and audio signals of modern techno-luminaries such as Kraftwerk and Daft Punk, but unlike the aforementioned, Haack has been left completely unacknowledged. Yet with Stones Throw's release of Farad (The Electric Voice), the electronic music pioneer will be lifted out of the sooty fields of obscurity and rightfully placed into the spotlight of the Electronic music continuum. Farad (The Electric Voice) specifically focuses on tracks using the "Farad", the name Bruce gave to his vocoder, one of the first musical vocoders at the time, which he invented. It includes out of print and unreleased tracks accessed via negotiations with Haack's estate.
Early recordings from 1968 – 1974. This is some of the most amazing electronic music we ever heard. An electronic musical-poetic treat for children and high school-people revealing more wonders of our earth-ship. Most of Bruce Haack's music was programmed on a polyphonic music computer built by him from surplus parts furnished by Ver-Tech Radio Philadelphia. The machine was made in 18 month without diagrams or plans (Bruce Haack has never studied electronics) and will produce up to twelve simultaneous voices in changing sequence via a memory holding over four-thousand bits of information. It will also compose at random.

STEPHEN DAVID HEITKOTTER (Earmonger US re) NEW 340:-
Deluxe reissue of this completely unique slab of outsider private press psychedelia. Long whispered about by the most inner circle of obsessive psych collectors, but up till now heard only by a lucky few. A true legend for sure, and rightfully so, as the bizarre story surrounding the LP is nearly as twisted as the music itself. Ex-Road Runners drummer Stephen David Heitkotter recorded and pressed the LP in California sometime before 1971 as a demo only edition of no more then two dozen copies in blank white covers, then distributed it only to a handful of local San Joaquin radio stations before the pressing plant destroyed the masters due to non-payment. Within months of his failed attempt at radio stardom Stephen was committed to the state mental ward, and that was that... but what an album he left behind...Deeply damaged outsider/real people westcoast basement loner acid-garage-blues from a genuinely insane person, recorded at the very edge of oblivion. The sound of a last gasp at the teetering edge of the darkest void. A murky disjointed trip wobbling between acid-scorched un-reality and pure all-encompassing blankness...Full electric band setting. semi-tight playing disintegrates into meandering sonic smear at every turn, then somehow resolidifies and churns onward while bent deadpan vocals funnel garbled surrealisms from nowhere to nowhere. The scarily hyper-real yet ultra-weird otherworldly presence is as thick as it comes, and only enhanced by the raw/crude/muffled recording fidelity. limited edition of 1000 copies.
HELIOCENTRICS: Out There 2xLP (NowAgain US 07) NEW 180:-

JIMI HENDRIX: Smash Hits (Polydor G) STOBC Vg+++/M- 130:-
HORRIFIC CHILD/JEAN-PIERRE MASSIERA: L'ETRANGE MONSIEUR WHINSTER (FK UK re) New 220:-
Part rock album, part experimental album, part imaginary horror soundtrack, L'Etrange Monsieur Whinster is a psychedelic pop audio show, flowing naturally from one surprising sequence to the next. Horrific Child was the creation of one Jean-Pierre Massiera, also the composer behind the Les Maledictus Sound project from 1968. Les Maledictus Sound were an inventive, high-brow concoction of lounge-style instrumental mod big band music, with heavy brass, plucky bass and fuzz guitar. Horrific Child is certainly the logical stylistic next step from that record, evidence of the composer's having survived several years beyond the psychedelic era.

Limited repress of this little known gem by Dutch Hammond king Roland Thyssen under his Bun Hunga pseudonym which has already been tipped as one of the best exploited albums of the continent. Bun Hunga & His Diplomatic Music (as it appeared in early 7"s and some issues of the album) recorded this killer exploitation album which, unlike many of it's counterparts, is a solid killer from start to finish (not a single dumb filler in sight!). Think The Underground Set, La Formule Du Baron, Jungle Obsession, Mandingo and other groovers of the era... this is European exploitation as it's best."

JOHNNY GUITAR (Thaiphonograph Thailand) h2o rw tobc Vg/Vg 1200:-
Tracks from these ultra rare LPs appears on the Thai Beat A Go-Go vol 1 CD. Very little is now known about the Thai rock n roll scene of the 1960s, an era that now seems hopelessly lost in the past. The original records are so scarce that they practically never turn up, even in their native Thailand This was the kings of the string bands in Thailand. Amazing wild rocking instro sounds. These records are totally extinct so you wont stumble on any more copies anytime soon. Both plays great all though visually they’re not perfect…but try preserving a vinyl record and sleeve in Thailand for almost 40 years. Supannahong is a traditional tune reserved for a boat procession on the mighty Chao Praya river. In Johnny's Guitar's hands the song turns into a haunting masterpiece that even pre-dates the coming of the psychedelic era.

BHARAT KARKI & PARTY: INTERNATIONAL MUSIC (EM re) NEW 210:-
From beginning to end, this is a flood of weird Indian psychedelic funk, showering us with heavy percussion grooves in a borrowed 'international music' style featuring elements of rock, as well as latin and arabic music, melded with chanted Hindu mantra. Electric guitar and bass, bunch of Indian percussion, flutes, scream, organ and (maybe) Moog! An explosion of Indian youth music from the mysterious- 1978 private production. First time ever reissue.
Kebnekajse: Idioten (Subliminal Sounds 2011) LP 180:-
Release date February 25, 2011. The LP is a limited edition 500 copies. Idioten (The Fool) - Kebnekajse unleash a new album in February 2011. Kebnekajse takes folk rock to new heights. Forty years after their debut, the Swedish 70's folk rock pioneers have gathered no moss. Two years after their acclaimed comeback, and proven by countless tours they now present what is perhaps their strongest recordings ever – “Idioten” (The Fool). On the new album Kebnekajse widens views and lets the folk music tone find new forms, free from any tightly held reins. "We wanted to give the folk music new feet. From the vast cannon of ancient Swedish folk songs we wanted to highlight songs that stand out, rare songs that leave room for improvisation and debauchery in the spirit of the psychedelic '70s. With these resolutions the band got into the studio (the same one used for the recording of the latest Dungen album btw) for three sessions of four days each, from May to September. The result was ten new tracks. It’s unlimited music where intricate melodies and distinctive rhythms takes unexpected turns. Electrical. Eclectic. While unified in a dynamic drive. Kebnekajse has deepened the interplay in the last years of touring. In the initial track Barfota (Barefoot) the electric guitar and violin spins melodic sound weaves over pulsating drums, percussion and double basses. Heavy and soft at the same time. Fäbodpslam (Mountain Shack Psalm) breathes beautifully melancholy before the great polska From-Olle (Pious-Olle)whips up a furious pace. Hans & Greta is tight like a music box in the melody interplay while Senpolska (Late Polska) from Hälsingland becomes a drawn-out distorted drone piece ("like a grunt from the deepest of halls of the mountain king"). The musicians also breaks up with jam trips and let’s loose the love of their musical roots. The title track Idioten (The Fool) ("polska not sly on a spot") madly mixes a Hälsingland polska with hard progressive rock. Stockholm Polka get a snorting country feel and the collective Senegal Beat becomes dreamlike Afro-funk psych with a Alpine feel. The closing Norwegian “walking tune” Sangenuten (The Song Without) is connected with a long tail of psychedelia. With Idioten (The Fool) Kebnekajse lifts Swedish folk rock to new heights. And new psychedelic overtones. A short biography for new listeners: During the 1970s Kebnekajse was known as Sweden's highest band. Pioneering and leading among the Swedish instrumental psych/progressive groups. They electrified the folk music and shrugged off the knee-tassel. Instead the hippie-hair flew high on numerous music festivals. They made six albums from their inception from 1971 to 1978, after which they split up. Kebnekajse reunited during the summer of 2001 and in the early spring 2009 they released their critically acclaimed comeback album "Kebnekajse" with pure Swedish folk songs. After this the band has toured widely, and thus in 2011 Sweden’s hardest folk musicians widens the sound with psychedelic folk rock on their new album Idioten (The Fool). Pre-order now to receive it on the release date February 25, 2011.
KEBNEKAJSE (XMLP-SUB26) LP NEW 180:-
The highest band in Sweden flies again – Kebnekajse releases a new album! They have been extremely influential and their sound can be hard in most Swedish psych/prog bands, and of course Dungen whos lead guitarist Reine Fiske has been working with recording and production of this album: There’s a rumble in the mountain, the forest swings and sings, the wind grabs tones that meanders high up amongst the clouds. It is time for the troll-dance again…Kebnekajse releases a new album in February 2009. They may be the highest mountain in Sweden but they are known as the highest band in the land. They were pioneers with their instrumental, electrified Swedish folk (fiddler) music. When they unleash their heavy version of Horgalaten at a festival the ring dancing spins around so that the hippie-hair flutter and the knee-tassle starts smoking. Kebnekajse, with Kenny Hakansson, Goran Lagerberg, Mats Glenngard, Thomas Netzler, Hassan Bah och Pelle Ekman, are back on stage and record. Six men loaded with eight new songs recorded in the woods (in the legendary Silence Studio with Anders Lind and Reine Fiske behind the controls) and mixed in the city; electric folk-rock with psychedelic overtones.

ERKIN KORAY: SILINMEYEN HATIRALAR (Türküola T re) NEW 220:-
The father of Turkish psychedelia. A great compilation from 1971-1974. Most of the tracks here were not included on Erkin's original LP's and also other compilations issued so far. Limited edition of 300 copies on 150 gram vinyl.
ERKIN KORAY: Same (Miz SP re) NEW 225:-
Absolutely over the top debut album by Turkish psychedelic guitar guru. At last reissued on vinyl, this is the rarest of all Erkin albums but also the rarest Turkish psych album ever. This album, originally released in 1973, is actually a compilation of singles from the previous years since 1968. You can notice the difference in time when listening to the album, with some tracks kinda pre- psychedelic and some others heavily into it, but all of them with that unique Eastern feel that the guitar master gives to their recordings. Definitely, the best Koray album together withElektronik Turkuler, a total masterpiece
KRIS & JERRY: A Sunny Day (BJ Records US 66) Ex/Vg+++ 2000:-
Amazing private press special sounds. This is the original field find copy!!! See for full story by the one and only Mr. Rockadelic Haupt below: - “Some people spend their time wondering about the meaning of life .......others worry about death and the afterlife. Me, I'm trying to figure out just how many people have recorded and released records over the last 60 years. I've concluded the answer is way beyond a million and even that may be a low estimate. Every year my brother and I take a road trip to "dig" for records, this year we did 3,000 miles, 5 states and looked at what we estimate to be over 2 million records. Our goal is to find those undiscovered gems of music that have been lost in the black hole of vinyl releases. Music that truly deserves attention but for various reasons never received any when they were released. Music that has remained unheard, sitting in the bin of a used record store until folks like us give them a spin and discover the magic within. In Cedar Bluffs, Iowa there is an amazing store packed with vinyl called Kanesville Kollectibles....three levels of an old manufacturing plant with enough records to build a suspension bridge to neighbouring Omaha......more records than most people see in a lifetime.....heaven for nuts like me. We arrived at this vinyl Mecca at 10:00AM and proceeded to spend the next 8 hours digging through racks and boxes of LP's....hoping to find that unknown gem, that musical golden ticket that makes all our time and effort worthwhile. This year's winner was found hidden away in the Country & Western section...an LP by a young couple, Kris & Jerry, who were from rural Illinois titled "A Sunny Day" released in 1966. The second the needle from my portable turntable hit the grooves we knew this was special...a great discovery....the reason we dig. There are many amazing things about this record. The music is unlike any I've ever heard in my 30 years of vinyl addiction, sounding like a real down to earth Sonny & Cher without the Hollywood glitz that tainted their records. A folky duo that use saxophone, accordion and viola all to their advantage. The songs are beautiful monuments to young love and innocence and must be more powerful than both as Kris & Jerry are still married today some 43 years later. When I realized I was in love with this record I decided to try to find Kris & Jerry which turned out to be pretty easy. Still living in the same area, Jerry is a Music Director at a local school and had fond memories of the record he recorded in 1966. "I loved to write songs" Jerry told me, and the songs on the LP were written in very short order. "I didn't really have too many influences, I just wrote what I felt. It was a way for me to communicate". Very humble about his record I think Jerry was surprised that someone had unearthed his past. The LP is a "vanity press", one of those records that have a generic catalog chosen cover which just happens to capture the feel of "A Sunny Day" in an uncanny fashion. The songs are short and to the point, all original songs except for the fitting cover of the Rolling Stones "As Tears Go By". This LP has that magic that very few LP's exude, something that occupies it's own special time and space while having a sound that has proven to be timeless. Cuts like "The Boy I Really Loved", "In A Far Away Place", "See The Shape I'm In" and "Little People" all reach out from my speakers and make the hair on the back of my neck stand at attention...an eerie journey into the private lives of two people who have no shame in sharing it with us. Kris's vocals which don't really jump out at first really grow on you in a beautifully haunting way that penetrates deeper with each listen. It is with great honour that I am now able to share their music with the world and know that the message they placed in a bottle some 43 years ago has been found by an appreciative audience.“
KRISTYL (Private re) M-/M- 350:-
”Highly regarded local Christian 1970s melodic guitar-rock with an open late-1960s west coast vibe, dual guitars and great organic playing/vocals all around. They have a very distinct sound, which makes the tracks seem similar at first, but it opens up after some plays and remains that way. The best tracks such as "Deceptions of the mind" and "Valley of life" are truly monumental. Personal fave, one of the big ones in the style. Great sleeve design”. -Acid Archives. I can only agree 100% plus add that this exact , legit and perfectly executed limited reissue cam out in the 1990s and has been sold out for ages so don’t miss. A really amazing album.
LA LOGIA SARABANDA (Discos Rex U re) NEW 240:-

PHILIP JOHN LEWIN: Diamond Love and Other Realities (Gargoyle US 7?) rw Ex-/M- 460:-
A perfect hot-tub sound here folks. This is a fully electric folkrock trip with a jammy westcoast feel, with flowing keyboard, jazzy moves and mixed male/female vocals and long instrumental passages played by great lubby pro-musicians. On the private Gargoyle label from mid-1970s Canada. Very obscure 2nd LP from Lewin, and quite different from his debut.
SVEN LIBAEK & HIS ORCHESTRA: Solar Flares (Votary Australia re) NEW 265:-
The amazing library album from 1974, originally released on Peer, Solar Flares is surely one of the greatest albums of the genre. Similar in tone to Inner Space, this time Labaek conceptually explores outer space. Expect that sublime Labaek jazz/exotica sound complete with homemade synth. Featuring all the usual Australian jazz and studio guys. Beautifully restored and limited to 500 LP copies only.
LIFE ON EARTH!: A Space Water Loop (XMLP-SUB31 2009) LP 180:-
The follow-up to the acclaimed debut ”Look!! There is Life on Earth!” The first album was something of a journey past summer green hills and skipping lambs; a celebration of the imperishable eternal beauty and a romantic observation of the world around us. Now the telescope is turned inside out. The focus is on the captain of the project, Mattias Gustavsson's own world. Confusion and contradiction are found in the front stalls, visions of ecstasy next to battles with demons and defunct relationships. The drums are given more space, and a Hammond organ has found its way along the layered vocals and languorousstring arrangements. But even though the sound has grown both harder and bigger, the album is a natural follow-up with equal parts sound experimentation, folk and classic psychedelic pop, based on an acoustic guitar. Besides Life on Earth!, Mattias Gustavsson, among other things, plays the bass in Dungen and is currently producing a coming album with Lisa & Piu. Other members of Life on Earth! are Martin Fogelström, Alexis Benson, Erik Lundin and Johan Holmegard (Dungen). On the album yet another ten or so guests help out as well. Just like the last time the cover paintings and collages were made by New York artists and Lights members Sophia Knapp and Wizard Smoke. The album got its title from Knapp's collage “A Space Water Loop”.
LIFE ON EARTH!: Look! There is… (Subliminal Sounds XMLP-SUB21) NEW 180:-
Limited vinyl LP edition of 500 copies. Life on Earth! is the solo-work of talented multi-instrumentalist Mattias Gustavsson, from the Swedish band Dungen. Together with some fellow travelling kindred musical spirits (musicians from Dungen, The Works, Town & Country and Mia Doi Todd), he has created an amazingly deep and timeless album filled with shimmering vibrant psychedelic folk-rock-pop. The basic idea was to make music that celebrates the incredible and absolutely wonderful phenomenon of life on Earth, hoping to spread some joy to any possible listeners. The project has been going on since 2003. Barefoot on tiptoe, in a bubble of magic, swirling elegantly among the stars. Here's life on earth according to Life On Earth!: "Right in between, both after and before, nobody really knows where we came from or where we are going ... Suddenly one is cut off from one's past, intruded on by the present, without a clue of what to say or what to do about anything. But where ever we may go, it is all one and the same anyway. Why not simply enjoy it, until the day we die? So lay all your worry aside now. Don't hesitate; let your dreams sweep you away. Then you may see everything that's forgotten here. Lean back and feel how light and exquisite you truly are. Wonder at the beauty of nature; listen to how it invites you among beech trees and squirrels. Embrace it, because he and she and it and we are all connected to you and you are just like everything else, constantly changing into wondrous beings yet unseen -- you might watch the life on Earth for inspiration." Got it? In other words, absolutely joyful, wondrous, swirling Swedish psych-folk loveliness. Sparkling acoustic singer-songwriter sing-a-longs, acid-drenched guitar burners, spacey vocals, electronic whines, sitar-drone, psych-flute trill, bongos, echoes, some dreamy backwards-masking, and even some songs in English! More pared down (but no less thrilling) than Dungen, with its hands and feet on the warm rocks beside the river.
LINKWOOD FAMILY: Piece of Mind EP (Firecracker Rec UK) NEW 140:-
Exclusive 10" from the UK in a run of 1000 copies and comes with really nice artwork on the outer - and inner sleeves. On the A side there's this rework from Leo Sunshipp's 'I'm back for more' titled 'Piece of mind' here, by The Linkwood Family. A sublime disco/soul cut with an irresistible groove; this rework has heavy chops on the vocals before the break, and an overall psychedelic feel. The flip comes with a vocal intro plus Linkwood's 'Hear the sun'; a smoky, minimal midtempo 4/4 track with sparse percussion, flute, subtle sax, and warm sounds. Last track on the flip comes from Fudge Fingas and is called 'Aksman'. A subtle vocal cut with modest keywork and easy bassplaying. Groovy!
LISA o PIU: Behind the Bend (Subliminal Sounds SUB-071-LP 2010) LP NEW 160:-
Brand new album from this bewitching Swedish folk siren and her band. This is the follow up to last years critically acclaimed debut album “When this was the future”. To get inspiration for the creation of the new album “Behind the Bend” Lisa spent time in a small cottage located deep in the vast woods of Vastmanland, Sweden, where she enjoyed the last breath of the summer. Every evening she and David walked further in to the woods to an old rowing boat that lay on the edge of a forest lake. In the light of the magically ever glowing Swedish summer midnight sun they paddled across the lake and then further along a forest creek with lush green trees that hangs down over the fresh running water and water lilies. This is the kind of set and setting where you travel into another world….and they did. The initial recordings were made under a vaulted blue ceiling with gold stars in the old 15th century timber church of Hjulsjo, Sweden. The new album is filled with delicious and bewitching watery woodland folk hymnals, eloquent yet eerie. The harp has been given more space, the violin plays a greater role, the twelve-stringed guitar plays graceful melodies and all is led by Lisa's gossamer vocals, as delicate as a wavering candle flame. Come along for the ride. The LP is a limited edition of 500 copies and the CD limited 1200 copies worldwide.
LISA o PIU: When this was the Future (XMLP-SUB33) LP 180:-
Vinyl edition limited 500 copies.Lisa Isaksson grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Stockholm where she spent most of her time in horse stables dreaming of becoming a riding teacher and owning her own stables. When she wasn’t with the horses she was drawing and spending time on her own in the garden and fantasized about the future. As Lisa grew older and discovered music the drawings and horses soon turned into song lyrics and it wasn’t long before Lisa had rescued her mother’s old guitar from a life in the attic. Lisa soon began experimenting with her voice and songs and began exploring recording techniques with a 4-track recorder. Through the years her love of music continued to grow and she started performing with friends and eventually forming the band Piu together with some friends from school. Lisa’s debut record was a single released in Scotland in 2007. The single got a lot of good reviews and Lisa & Piu gave a couple of concert on the British Isles as well as home in Stockholm. They also came to perform with the British folk musician Roger Wootton who led the legendary acid folk band Comus during the early 1970s. The performances went so well that they were released as a live album. As summer came and turned Sweden into a green and pleasant place again the core of Piu; Lisa, David, Joel and Anders went to a small cottage in the beautiful archipelago north of Stockholm. They arranged and rehearsed the music and also had a lot of fun on the cliffs enjoying the endless sunsets of midsummer. So started the making of what was to become the debut album:“When this was the future”. The album is filled with delicious and bewitching woodland folk hymnals, eloquent yet eerie, and led by Lisa’s gossamer vocals, as delicate as a candle flame. The album is produced by Mattias Gustavsson (Life on Earth! / Dungen). - When I heard Lisa o Piu it was if someone opened the portals to the secret world where from the greatest get their divine inspiration; Linda Perhacs, Bridget St. John, Joni Mitchell, Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan has all been there. And now Lisa Isaksson has apparently been there too. So I hereby warmly recommend you all to seat yourselves in a comfortable position and sink in to the most beautiful music this world can offer. Far away from any genres and trends.

PRESTON LOVE: Preston Love’s Omaha Bar-B-Q (Kent US re) NEW €7.40
”This album is one of a surprisingly large number of deeply funky releases that appeared in the late 60s and throughout the 70s by older players--usually associated with either blues, jazz or early rock n' roll. For years, these albums have been treated with disdain by those who collect the artists' work as commercial sellouts and were so obscure that they were practically unknown to funk fans. Omaha native PRESTON LOVE is not a straight R&B player. He came up playing in the big bands of Nat Towles, Lloyd Hunter, Lucky Millinder, and Count Basie. This album was recorded in 1969 with Love's best friend Johnny Otis and Otis' regular band, which by this time included the blistering guitar playing of his 14 year old son Shuggie Otis. This album is proof positive that Love's blues-drenched soul alto is the perfect vehicle for a funk record. "Pot Likker" and "Chili Mac" are sure to keep you dancing with their tight funky grooves. On the lush, psychedelic "Cream Dream" Preston displays the beautiful tone and soulful creativity that have caused fans and fellow musicians to marvel for years, and Shuggie Otis positively BURNS on every cut. Cookin' up an Omaha Bar-B-Q is Preston Love's specialty...but this soulful funk feast will be just as delicious no matter where you are.”

LOVE LIVE LIFE + ONE: Love Will Make A Better You (Phoenix re) NEW 210:-
Numbered limited edition. Gatefold with original artwork. Contains original illustrated LP lyric insert. There were several progressive psychedelic groups in Japan in the early 70s including the short-lived Love Live Life + 1. The band played a few live gigs and released this lone album before disbanding. The group consisted on 9 musicians and the "Plus One" seems to refer to vocalist Akiri Fuse who had been a pop vocalist since the mid-60s and appearing on albums since 1967. Most of the musicians were obscure except for keyboard player Hiro Yanagidawho was a member of the highly acclaimed Foodbrain and later Strawberry Path whose album When The Raven Has Come To Earth was released the same year of Love Will Make A Better You, and guitarist Kimio Mizutani who was in the band People that released the massively rare Ceremony - Buddha Meets Rock. Love Live Lifes only record is a mix of blues-based psychedelia that pushes into progressive and even avant-garde realms at times, while the skronky sax playing even recalls the edgier end of the jazz spectrum. An original, innovative and extremely rare piece of Japanese psychedelia.
BARIS MANCO: Dunden Bugune (Guer SP re) NEW 260:-
One of the leading Turkish rock musicians and one of the most influential, along with Erkin Koray, Edip Akbayram and Cem Karaca. This is his first long player, released in 1971 by Sayan Productions.

Killer psych rock with strong Turkish flavour, this features Baris' all-time classics like "Derule" or "Daglar Daglar", as well as the brutal wah-wah flooded "Kucuk bir gece muzigi" with its infectious drumming. Not to be confused with the two different releases with the same name that actually have different tracklist and artwork, t this is the real album as it was originally released. Includes an insert with great shots and biography of Baris.

HARVEY MANDEL: Cristo Redenator (Philips US 68) M-/M- 490:-
US original Stereo in real nice shape (they’re usually trashed) , no cutout (it usually is). “This was Mandel's first album showcasing his great abilities, fluid dexterity on the fretboard, echoy leads, fuzz, it's all hear in a groovy setting of hip melodic self composed tracks...This gently psychedelic album from 1968, shows an impossibly young-looking Mandel pictured on the back artwork, a diminutive figure dwarfed by his big Gibson 355. The grooves within demonstrate not only his virtuosity on guitar, but also why his tenure with Canned Heat and John Mayall was so brief and why the Stones declined to hire him. Mayall described his technique as “Harvey’s wall of sound”, which aptly encompasses his early mastery of controlled feedback through his customised Bogan amplifier, and his later featuring of two-handed tapping, well before EVH got hold of that particular trick. This album is a rarity in poprock-psych terms; the only voice to be heard is that of a wordless soprano singer on the title track. However, the stylistic diversity of the tunes and the variety of the backing tracks means that it is by no means repetitive. It was mostly recorded in LA and Nashville, using the top rhythm section sessioneers of both camps: Art Stavro and Eddie Hoh from the Wrecking Crew, stalwarts of the early Monkees sessions, and Bob Moore and Kenny Buttrey, soon to anchor Dylan’s Nashville Skykine. The LA tracks also feature tight arrangements, while the Nashville ones benefit from Pete Drake’s sympathetic pedal steel accompaniment. The album as a whole is a classic late-night-listening record, beautifully laid-back groovy arrangements fronted by a bewildering array of restrained guitar tricks from Mandel, dazzling but never flashy or tasteless. The titles give the idea: “Lights Out”, “Nashville 1AM”, “Before Six”. “Cristo Redentor” is translated to Portuguese for Christ The Redeemer, and this title track is the exception to the album, being a solemn, flowing piece “Before Six” features some of Harvey’s most mind-boggling sustain work, the sound looping wildly between the stereo speakers, plus a mouth-watering cameo on Hammond by longtime LA collaborator Barry Goldberg and tasty backing arrangements stab throughout. “You Can’t Tell Me” is funkier than your average Nashville session, with Harvey wringing out the best Memphis scale licks ever heard, intertwining with Pete Drake’s slippery steel chords.”

Limited edition coloured vinyl. A few years before the release of AFRO TEMPLE, Sabu moved upnorth to the Dalecarlia area of Sweden were rumours said he had created a "Percussion Muical".

This album also includes unique and never before released tracks with Sabu´s Freak Out Hammond organ quartet named THE FAR OUT GANG and his superior 24 piece orchestra BJÖRBOBANDET!

”Seven tracks by seven different bands from Manasquan High School in New Jersey. Bands include Armadillo, Pegasus, Dead-End, Voyager, Runaways, Alternate Route, Mersey. They must have been in a time warp over there as the entire LP has an early to mid 70's sound with some heavy garage guitar psych tracks. My faves are the moodier cuts like “The Little Girl Who Lived Light Years Away”. Only a handful of copies have turned up and being released on RPC it's probably a micro pressing so an extremely rare album.
MILAN THE LEATHER BOY: HELL BENT FOR LEATHER (LS re) NEW 220:-
Must-have vinyl only release. From his earliest incarnation in the record industry as a Xmas twister, the enigmatic Milan has changed his name and re-invented himself several times: a teen idol with a cute hairdo and a preppy look, a garage gonzo savage, an all dressed-in-black biker stud, a psychedelic screamer in love with satellite sounds and other characters known or waiting to be discovered. One thing is for sure, few people can claim so many identities in less than a decade. Composer, interpreter, producer & arranger, Milan is also all of these throughout the 60's. This anthology would like to pay homage to the man. The A side is dedicated to the singer and performer, and the B side to the producer and arranger. Unfortunately, Milan's fame was due to be short and by the end of the 60's he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and disappeared from the music business. Come along with him. Somewhere he survived, archangel on the highway following the sun. Soulin'.

DRAGO MLINAREC: Pjesme S Planine (Jugaton Y 72) rw Ex- /Ex+ 560:-
Pjesme s planine" (Eng. "Songs From The Mountain") was the second album of Drago Mlinarec, recorded and released in 1972, after he spent some time in the mountainous countryside where he wrote most of these songs. The backing band was titled PRIJATELJI (The Friends). I've had a couple other LPs by this guy that were so-so....but this one's great! Features two very long jamming guitar/organ westcoast monster tracks that go all the way along with folkrock, like the wonderful folk-rock epic of the title song with some hints of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young guitar sound, & offbeat bluesy shorter tracks. LP is titled "Pjesme s Planine" from Yugoslavia 1972 on the Jugoton label # LPYVS-60995 and comes in a fab psychy mysterious gatefold cover. For my head, this beats any of the hardrock bands I've heard from there...it gets a more interesting flash to westcoast psych going down & the jam out long tracks are killers. Superb LP!

”Cool, unique and pretty unknown one from time warped 1982. These guys peppered their soulful rock with jazzy jamming and a street-poet style of vocalizing to create a distinctive sound. Lots of saxophones, but plenty of guitar too. They're legends in Cleveland and some think they were one of the best live bands ever. A melting pot of inner city sounds grabbing you by the throat and shaking you down until you've forked over the $$$ needed to keep the Numbers Band party going with cocaine, women and Sly Stone records all night.“

ODMENN 2 x LP (Shad G re) NEW 540:-
2 x LP 500 numbered deluxe heavy gatefold sleeve and 4 page insert
This self titled album was the only one that Icelandic progressive rock trio Odmenn ever released. It was made at a critical point in Odmenn‘s history when the band members had agreed to take a sabbatical year while the guitarist studied law at the University of Iceland. They got together for the last time a year after the album was released and split up directly after having played only one gig. Odmenn was formed in early 1966 by the Johannsson brothers playing the most popular music clubs in Reykjavik. Most of Odmenn’s music could be categorised as protest songs or social studies touching topics like anti-war protest and fights against pollution, greed and deception balanced with more positive stances like hope for a better world with love and eternal brotherhood. "Psychedelic guitar pieces had become their trademark". Odmenn recorded this double album in Copenhagen with a release late December 1970. Odmenn made a great impression with their blooming mixture of energetic blues rock and was probably one of the best progressive rock bands in Northern Europe. 15 great songs released as a double album with massive 4 page insert and many photos plus liner notes.
ORANGE PEELS (MR Re) NEW 100:-
Yes! Seems it's time to blow all jaded 60s record collectors minds! You thought you heard it all? Well, I bet you haven‚t heard this one! Very rare US mid- 60s garage guitar twanger monster! Freaky, raw fucked up vocal and instrumental tracks with way out wild and crude guitar interaction and deranged vocals that goes beyond most anything. It's even lose and jammy! Yes this LP is a totally unique killer and not like hundreds of other rare but boring US garage LPs. This is the major missing piece in all 60s garage rock collections. Ltd to 500 copies, that will move quickly. One of my all time personal faves!

PARLIAMENT: Osmium (Earmark I re) NEW 180:-
Formed in 1968, George Clinton's Parliament / Funkadelic took the soul music of the 1960s and Hendrix-esque psychedelic rock and 'tore the roof off the sucka'. Combining bass-heavy party music with a theatrical live show and innovative rhetoric, P-Funk was not only a band, but a revolution that used music as a means of breaking the chains of the dominant culture and achieve a heightened self-awareness (while not forgetting to have fun in the process). A motto perhaps best summed up in the tile of Funkadelic's 1970 album Free Your Mind, And Your Ass Will Follow. Osmium, their classic 1970 release on Invictus Records, was the group's first release under the Parliament moniker and included 'I Call My Baby Pussycat' and 'Little Ol'Country Boy'. Clear vinyl.
PARSON SOUND: 3 LP BOX SET (Subliminal Sounds SW) NEW 440:-
Pre-order now. Finally out on vinyl May 28! Deluxe triple LP box set. Limited edition of 1000 copies worldwide. Revised liner notes. A spectacular archival package of primitive drone and minimalist rock/trance/psych from the Swedish underground, one of the most memorable audio documents ever. The nucleus of the Swedish 1960's-70s underground psych rock scene: the legendary Pärson Sound. This deluxe 3-LP box set presents the most remarkable Swedish underground band, known in a later incarnation and continuation as International Harvester and Träd, Gräs och Stenar (Trees, Grass and Stones), and features both intricate studio recordings and orgiastic live performances. Pärson Sound never released any records in their time and that is why a very few have heard about them at all. The recordings date from 1967/68 while the band explored unknown musical territory as well as inner- and outer space. In 1968 they were invited by Andy Warhol to play at the opening of his exhibition: 'Screens, Films, Boxes, Clouds and a Book', at the museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and also opened for the Doors. Influenced by the musical concepts of Terry Riley, Pärson Sound worked at discovering and perfecting their own unique approach towards the mixing of rock and minimalism. They created some of the most remarkable psych- trance-drone-pre-noise music-rock sounds ever recorded. Pärson Sound's music described contexts, interplay and organic growth and shaped a conception of the world -- an opposite of fragmentation, individual achievements and intellectual construction. This world was to be perceived as one body, a whole of inviolable parts. The minimalist repetition with slight changes gives associations of a slow growth, of cyclic process, of breathing, pulse, life, movement and machines. The persistent repetition gives the listener an opportunity to discover the sounds, to meditate, to go into the music, join the same journey. Many times one can discover a relationship with music of other cultures. In comparison the music of the Western world can feel cursory, unreliable -- as a fear of entering deep into feeling. Pärson Sound's compositions often consist of harsh structures -- a rhythm pattern with ostinato bass, a melodic figure -- which forms a base for improvisation. Other songs have a more thoroughly elaborated structure that still leaves room for variation. The moment, the audience, the location formed their music. Their key phrase was 'We, Here and Now!' With time, the music came to have an increasing 'religious' or shamanistic streak -- with a raised demand of intensity, presence and warmth -- a striving for euphoria and ecstasy. The bands psychedelic approach towards music is so fresh and vital that it transcends time. Listen to it now! A 3xLP with an informative and revised liner notes in English and lots of photos.
CHARLEY PATTON: Electrically Recorded: Prayer of Death (Monk re) M-/M- 140:-
From the granddaddy of Delta blues comes this incredible compilation of his greatest songs. Charley Patton's influence on music cannot be overstated. He began playing music around 1900 and by the time he was 19, about a decade later, he had already written his most popular tune "Pony Blues" and was on his way to becoming the first superstar of the Delta Blues and a household name. He was soon the most requested performer all over the South and influenced many young musicians, like Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker and Robert Johnson, to name a few. But it was not only his mastery of the guitar and incredible vocal style that gained him popularity. His rock star-style showmanship and stage antics - like playing guitar down on his knees or behind his back - with a girl on each arm and drink in hand after the show, made him the idol of young would-be musicians (and non) everywhere he played. And like a true rock star, by age 42 he was dead, which of course, only fuelled his fame.
CHARLEY PATTON: ELECTRICALLY RECORDED: HIGH WATER everywhere) (Monk re) NEW 180:-
One step further into the life and music of this true superstar of early blues, this compilation features the two-part "High Water Everywhere", considered to be one of the greatest blues songs of all time, along with other pearls like "Devil Sent The Rain Blues", making this second episode of Monk's retrospective on Patton, another must have. Patton's ability to put the harsh everyday struggle of the Delta dwellers into music makes him one of the most enduring and soulful musicians in the entire history of Blues.
CHARLEY PATTON: ELECTRICALLY RECORDED: JESUS IS .a dying bed maker (Monk re) NEW 180:-
12 more tunes from Patton's 1929 recording sessions. Here the acknowledged "king of the Delta blues" performs some of his finest spiritual blues, like the title track, and "You're Gonna Need Somebody When You Die". One the most seminal blues artists of all time, this collection helps keep the legend alive.

RISA POTTERS: Half Woman, Half Child (National General US) M-/M- 280:-
And not half bad either. I don't know who Risa is or what she's doing now, but back in the late sixties she was singing her little sweet heart out like a sexy late teen. Most intriguing is her backing band, who must have bumped into Ken Kesey before they dropped into the studio. Subtle but wonderfully mad and seldom pops up.
PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOP SERIES: Rock Improvisation Volume One (PMP US) ss toc rw Vg/Vg+++ 70:-
“ Rare Music library record. It features three “country rock” cuts, three “rock” pieces, a “funk rock” selection, and a “blues” piece, all played by an instrumental rhythm band. The idea is that you can play lead or improvise over the pieces with guitar or some other instrument.”

Here is another lost and unreleased at the time Californian psychedelic masterpiece of the highest caliber from 1967!

(The same studios the ARTHUR recordings and e.g. HENDRICKSON ROADHOUSE came from) and the acetates were pressed in the legendary "Gold Star Studios" the same year. The music is a mixture of superb garage folk, swinging London style garage pop and heavy fuzz loaded psychedelic to the max tracks with some incredible great eastern influences!

JUSTYN REES: How Can I Tell Them (Prophet US 69?) srw 1200:-
Very rare and pretty much unknown psych masterpiece from 1969! Justyn Rees was the former lead singer of the UK group The Peacemakers and recorded this fantastic solo album shortly after becoming a pilot in North America. Though some of his old band’s beat influences can be found here, How Can I Tell Them is more rooted in a soothing folky ‘60s AM-radio adult-mod pop style. Justyn’s songs cruise along leisurely with a crisp beat, catchy pop hooks enveloped with delicate string arrangements, accompanied by 12-string or electric guitar and led by his expressive vocal style. All twelve tracks are nice but two stand out in particular. ‘The Rain Came Down’ and ‘Behold’ are both incredibly dreamy pieces rich with mellotron-like strings and echoey vocals. The former has a fragile soft-psych feel with phased guitar, while the latter soars with ethereal choral effects. Deep mindblowers!!! Released on a tiny New York label in a gatefold cover with liner notes detailing the circumstances of each song.
RILEY: GRANDMA’S ROADHOUSE (Delmore US re) NEW 240:-
Vinyl reissue of rare recording by country legend GARY STEWART.

JOHN RYDGREN: Worlds of Youth (Concordia US) srw Vg+++/Ex- OFFERS
"Mindblowing 1968 LP from John Rydgren in conjunction with Herbert Brokering. Contains 9 spoken word pieces with musical backing, similar in content and style to the Silhouette Segments LP but even rarer. Rydgren's convoluted brilliance is in full form here and it even includes a couple of rare examples of Rydgren singing. This is an extremely cool Christian psych artefacts. "'The legacy of John Rydgren was one of the most enigmatic in radio-jock if not also record history. A Lutheran evangelist, Rydgren started a hit program called Silhouettes. As with Ken Nordine, his thoughts were highly original, ranging from quirky perceptions of the mundane to deep acid-head philosophy. Distributed to free to radio stations, Worlds of Youth and Silhouette Segments never was commercially released because of licensing difficulties. It remains an obscure and treasured memento of the radio program. The LP was given heavy airplay in Vietnam, however. Questioning life's meta assumptions within a reassuring pop context, it was a natural for soldiers. And for everyone its juxtaposition of the antipodes of hip and square continue to blow minds"

450 numbered ltd. Shark Move started playing in Bandung, Indonesia in 1970 and was founded by Benny Soebardja who play lead guitar and sings. Shark Move is one of the Indonesian rock pioneers who combined rock music with traditional harmonies and progressive sounds. Some songs on this LP using English lyrics, while other bands at that time where still playing sweet music, this is really an experimental recording. Unfortunately at the end of 1970 the keyboard player passed away so Benny decided not to continue with his band and formed a new on named Giant Step. A very complex prog album which is as strong as many good UK albums of the same period but it has this little extra which makes this album unique and great.

450 copies only and long out of print from 1995. Noisy pressing as all copies. We are caught in a spiral of sound where the musicians contribute to a re-lightning of the Westcoasts electrically burning sun and the magic of the orient. Here one breaths an unusual kind of air, aboard a ship that travels through seas of …dreams and a mild worry or buried under mountains of fuzz guitars. We’re not talking about an ordinary record but a sweet sour fully calibrated work, a worthy and definitive consecration... – Rockerilla Italy 1995
S.T. Mikael: In Harmony (XMLP-SUB25) NEW 199:-

Mikael partially made with Fredrik Bjorling and Reine Fiske (of Dungen) and which were introduced with the album “Mind of Fire”. The last albums closing track “Gyrax, an ode to the ancient mushroom-cults, points the way to the new album. “In Harmony” is dedicated to our arch Mother, Nature, and all the treasures and mysteries it contains. The first track “Mother is Calling” signals this from the outset and his fifteen minute epos “Higher”, which Mikael performs as a one-man-band, tells about the blissful happiness he has received from that which springs from, and grows, in nature. As our world is changing more and faster S.T. Mikael says that it is important that we partake in the psychedelic communion and listen to each other…before it’s too late. Try it! Limited edition of 500 copies and vinyl only.

Now that he’s finally back here’s at last a chance for to join in to his psychedelic world again.

JADE STONE & LUV: Mosaics; Pieces of Stone LP (Subliminal Sounds 08) NEW 200:-
Limited edition of 500 copies exact reissue of the original but including a rare 45 cut + gatefold sleeve and colour innerbag with liner notes. The sole album from male-female duo Jade Stone & Luv is a lost gem from the heart of the psychedelic 1970s. Composed and self-produced in Nashville, “Mosaics; Pieces Of Stone” went unnoticed by the music industry upon release. Fortunately for us, it didn’t disappear forever, but simply went into retreat, biding its time. While almost unknown outside specialist circles, “Mosaics” has been an underground cult favorite for many years. The combination of top-level songwriting, skillful guitar/keyboard arrangements and soaring vocals is just too impressive to ignore. And beyond these obvious qualities, the album has something subtle and unique, a magnetic power that keeps drawing the listener back. One of Jade Stone & Luv’s earliest advocates was the legendary New York City musicologist Paul Major. Here’s a typical Major impression of the music on “Mosaics”:"Groovy love vibes thru a prism of jade statues in swinging singles apartment complex action... Cadillac with fuzzy dice, feather boa, lotsa cigarette burns, stale perfumed ashen air. This album in the 8-track player at 5 AM with someone you don't even know passed out in the backseat, as you head to the diner to meet up with an early-bird Lava Lite salesman who deals pills on the side. Bubbly champagne molecules become the plastic vinyl booths in dim-lit dive bars; it's crackerbox post-war suburban low-rent psychedelic…" The album’s cinematic qualities were also highlighted in a review in the recent Acid Archives book, which deals with vintage underground music:“…The music is notoriously hard to describe, but projects scenes of all-night cruising through Edge City... a hip which is not metropolitan hip, but dreams of stardom and glamour from the American underbelly, two renegade souls zooming down the highway between Austin and Nashville...”After 30 years, this rare experience is finally available for general consumption. Done in collaboration with Jade Stone himself.

350 numbered, heavy vinyl, heavy cover, 2 page insert. This is the second album after "TIME-before there was", recorded in 1969/70 in New York City. Lynn David Newton, Tom McFaul, Richard Stanley, Bob Stuhler (the drummer of HOT TUNA) and David Rosenboom (on 1 track) recorded 60 minutes of creative music which was never released before. Again, this is a musical masterpiece, well-composed, well-crafted, touchy and twisted songs with a big influence from the British Underground. On some tracks the vocals sound like Robert Wyatt in the early 70´s. If you like the Canterbury sound, art-rock with Underground roots, you will love this one. The album has 16 tracks, 45 minutes of music.
TOY FACTORY (Avco Embassy US 6) rw/M- 700:-

VG+/M- has light cover wear and couple inches of seam split at top of cover. Highly recommended if you want some berserk power pop psych action from 1969. And it’s really seriously rare.
TRAD GRAS och STENAR: Homeless Cats (XMLP-SUB 32) 2xLP 240:-
Limited edition of 1,000 copies ltd worldwide. Just in time for Trad Gras och Stenar (Trees Grass and Stones) 40-year anniversary the Swedish psychedelic trance-rock pioneers releases a new album - Homeless Cats. The first one in seven years and the seventh since the singing start in 1969. Eleven new boundless tracks with organic music for open minds. A 40-year anniversary is actually rather on the small. Back in 1967 the guitarist BoAnders Persson had already started his Terry Riley-inspired underground band Parson Sound with the bass player Torbjorn Abelli and drummer Thomas Mera Gartz, amongst others. They evolved into International Harvester, then Harvester, and finally striking root as Trad Gras och Stenar in 1969. The following year they arranged, end performed at, the legendary Swedish Gardes-festivals that pioneered the Swedish alternative music movement. Trad Gras och Stenar creates their own contemporary music, even if they have been compared to Krautrockers like Can and Faust internationally. Rhythmic heart pumping and sound streaming, sure – but at the same time peculiarly Swedish, with their roots in the mould and with branches that reaches high up in to the clear air. The new album, “Homeless Cats”, has also been able to develop in its own tempo. It was recorded by the band themselves during the period 2002-2007, mostly under jam-like forms in the bands rehearsal house and studio in Viksund - Sweden, but also live at gigs. During this period they also toured Europe, USA, Russia and Japan. In the meaty album booklet they give us a couple of personal travelogues. Trad Gras och Stenar have evolved a clear and mature sound with space enough for both suggestive heaviness and mind-expanded searching. The eleven new tracks bubbles and seethe. The band members build soundscapes all together where the music is allowed to grow forth freely. Sometimes the mostly instrumental tracks are irresistibly captivating as well as evolving seemingly weightlessand and sometimes it becomes like a plow in turbo tractor pace wrenches deep furrows in the stone field. Homeless Cats makes it’s mark. Heavy, at the same time vertiginous. Timeless. Trad Gras och Stenar has lost non of their spark… on the contrary and that is why the band is still touring worldwide. This new album is amazing; for the first time their whole mind-blowing live experience have been translated in to an album…much like the Deads “Anthem of the Sun”. I mean these guys are soon pushing 70 and are still playing the US cost to cost in a small van, touring Japan sleeping in temples on mountain tops. They are still living on the edge and playing like it really means something to them. In fact they are playing as their lives depended on it…and it really does.

Moog -- with a twang! Excellent album by the enigmatic Gil Trythall -- a moog musician who turned his talents towards the sound of 60s Nashville, with some incredible results! The format is simple -- take country hits, strip them down, and fill them with cool electronics and moogy bits -- so that they come out sounding as if they were recorded by Perry & Kingsley after getting drunk at a line dancing party. Tracks are a good mix of originals and covers.

3rd album by the foremost Swedish early 70s folk psych prog siren. The last album on the legendary underground label before she made her controversial signing to a major. 1st press with insert.
UC HUR EL (Guer SP re) NEW 260:-
of the very few, if not the only one, Turkish groups not doing any covers but only self-penned compositions, the mighty 3 Hl were three brothers: Onur, Haldun and Feridun Hl. Having played together for their whole life, it was in the late 60's when they took the 3 Hl name, and they released two wonderful albums that we're now making available for you vinyl freaks. This one's their debut, originally released in 1972. A brilliant set of Turkish ethno-influenced folk-rock tracks with a psychedelic feel, some great electric guitar and fantastic Eastern percussion. A very rare album now available again, with master tape sound and coming with an insert,
UNHEARD OF: Lonely Teardrops 10” (Farniente FR) NEW 60:-
Long op 10” with burning garage psych!
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (Sundazed US re) NEW 180:-
The United States of America, led by respected modern classical avant garde musician Joseph Byrd, cut a wide swath through the 1968 world of rock, just then comfortably settling in to its backwoods dreams of country-rock to find the debut U.S.A. album howling like an infant terrible on its front doorstep. At the center of the U.S.A.s fiercely experimental universe were the icy-cool vocals of the beautiful Dorothy Moskowitz, keeping this tumultuous sound from spinning out-of-control in every direction. Almost predictably, the U.S.A. disbanded before it could record a second album, but its brilliant, self-titled effort was certainly one for the ages.
VAMPIRES OF DARTMOORE : DRACULA'S MUSIC CABINET (FK UK re) NEW 230:-
Deluxe reissue of rare soundtrack to a film that never existed, performed by an imaginary pop-group. Incredible Polanski-inspired German Kraut psych horror madness from 1969.
CAETANO VELOSO (Philips Brazil 69) rw stoc Vg/Vg 200:-
”With such musical collaborators Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Tom Zé and Os Mutantes, Veloso developed tropicalismo, which fused Brazilian pop with rock and roll and avant garde music resulting in a more international, psychedelic, and socially aware sound. Veloso's politically active stance, unapologetically leftist, earned him the enmity of Brazil's military dictatorship; his songs were frequently censored, and some were banned. Veloso was also alienated from the socialist left in Brazil because of his acceptance and integration of non-nationalist influences (like rock and roll) in his music. Veloso and Gilberto Gil spent several months in jail for "anti-government activity" in 1968 and eventually exiled themselves to London. Caetano Veloso's work upon his return in 1972 was often characterized by frequent appropriations not only of international styles, but of half-forgotten Brazilian folkloric styles and rhythms as well.
VELVET UNDERGROUND: 3rd (MGM US re) M-/M- 130:-
VOICE OF THE SEVEN WOOD: Holy Harbour (TN UK) NEW 130:-

RONNIE VON: A MISTERIOSA LUTA DE REINO DE Parassempre Contra o Imprio de Nuncamais (re) NEW 235:-
"Finally the second album of the amazing trilogy by Brazilian star Ronnie Von from the late 1960s. This is a collection of 12 psychedelic pop songs, with unique arrangements and songwriting, featuring violins, reverse guitars, brass, piano and psychedelic effects. Even more innovative than the previous albums and nothing like what you have heard before, some songs are epic, some tropicalia, and some others are just pop masterpieces. Just check out the cover, and try to imagine what the record is like! Reissued on vinyl for the first time, with insert containing lyrics to all songs (not on the original release!)". Limited to 500 copies.
RONNIE VON: A MAQUINA VOADORA (re) NEW 225:-
This is the last and maybe best album in the trilogy, titled "A Maquina Voadora" (the flying machine). I don't think it's possible to describe how greatly composed and balanced this album is, truly one-of-a-kind songs. Both mid and slower tempo tunes are mixed here, including all kind of effects and Ronnie's enchanting voice, which fits perfectly the mysterious and melancholic songs in this album. Just listen to it, read the lyrics, look at the cover and let yourself fly into Ronnie's dreamy twisted mind. Reissued on vinyl for the first time, with insert containing lyrics to all songs (not on the original release!)". Limited to 500 copies.

WARLUS: SONGS (G SP re) NEW 235:-
Released as a private edition of only 200 copies in 1977 on the "Joint" label (but recorded two years earlier, in 1975), Warlus "Songs" could be regarded as the king of all French 70s obscure private pressings. Warlus was the brainchild of young musician Richard Maubert, who created a mini-masterpiece of twisted, melancholic fuzzed-out psychedelic-pop, with a charming homemade sound/production and druggy atmosphere. Sung in English, it also brings to mind other obscure USA private pressings like Kath. This is a very special record that will appeal to both psych aficionados and fans of 70s DIY weirdness. If you like other French private pressings like Dandelion and Les Temps Heureux, you’ll be amazed when you hear Warlus. The reissue includes liner notes and pictures. Carefully re-mastered from a clean original copy (master tapes were lost in time), and done under permission of Richard Maubert.

DENNIS WILSON: PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE (3LP) (S US re) 449:-
In 1977, Dennis Wilson launched Pacific Ocean Blue, the first solo LP by a member of the world-famous Beach Boys. Amazingly, Dennis-the bands drummer, surfer and all-around free spirit- emerged from the shadow of his older brother, pop genius Brian Wilson, and shocked the world by creating a heartfelt body of work unlike anything the Beach Boys had ever produced. Over 30 years later, Pacific Ocean Blue remains one of the most intoxicating solo showcases by a Wilson brother. Sundazed's vinyl edition of this lost masterpiece comes in a lavishly illustrated, triple-gatefold sleeve with the three LPs pressed in high-definition "Pacific Ocean Plue" vinyl. The first LP presents a gorgeous, newly-mastered version of the original album, and the other two LPs contain the absolute cream of Dennis Wilson's unreleased solo work, including enthralling material from his long-rumored Bambu project. Fans who have clamored for a proper vinyl release of this storied material will delight in this moment, while newcomers will be thrilled to discover the musical treasure hidden within one of rocks true cult classics. This is Dennis Wilson sailing out into historic territory-as daring and wild as the sea, itself-and carving his name in the clouds for all eternity.

Very Rare Original Swedish Garage Punk LP released on Crypt Records in 1987. 1st pressing on the Dull Orange label. Wylde Mammoths were founded in Stockholm, Sweden in the mid-80's and were part of the thriving garage rock scene of the day which included Stomachmouths, High Speed V, Crimson Shadows and The Creeps. In 1986 they were signed to the American label Crypt Records, being one of the first new bands Crypt released, before that they mostly made 60's garage compilations like the Back from the grave-series. Being very influenced by the music of the 60's themselves, The Wylde Mammoths recorded their first album in singer Peter Maniette's basement only using an old 2-track Beocord tape recorder.

Among these, other bands confronted the regime inside Indonesia, like Dara Puspita or Koes, among others.

SPANISH CINEMATIC GROOVES & FUNKY SOUNDTRACKS, 1968-1978. In the late sixties and early to mid seventies, while Spain was still under Franco's last years of dictatorship, Spanish cinema entered two important periods known as "Landismo" (named after actor Alfredo Landa) and "Destape" (The Strip Period). Lots of bizarre, soft-erotic/comedy and exploitation films were shot, most of them featuring groovy and delirious soundtracks. Serious and well-respected musicians like Anton Garca Abril, Adolfo Waitzman and Gregorio Garcia Segura incorporated the latest musical trends which came from other European countries like Italy and France to their work. This was a frenetic period, in which these composers adopted the hip and modern sounds of the time to their compositions for soundtracks, mixing them with their Spanish roots, resulting in an avalanche of incredible soundtracks for exploitation films. Virtually every Spanish comedy/exploitation/action film released during 1968 and 1974 included the typical scene of "young people dancing to groovy music at the club full of weird hippies", especially if the directors were people like Pedro Lazaga and Mariano Ozores and the cast featured actors like Alfredo Landa or Jos Luis Lopez Vasquez. Sadly, the majority of these soundtracks are lost forever, as they were never released on vinyl and the audio master tapes usually were erased or ended up in the trashcan. On 'Psicotronica' you'll find tracks taken from real soundtracks along others which sound 100% cinematic but were never included in any film. All of them taken from unknown records released in Spain between 1968 and 1978, including many rare library private recordings. A real fest of Spanish styled blaxploitation & library grooves, psychedelic funk full of flute, fuzz and wah-wah guitars, Hammond grooves, sexploitation sounds, bossa-scat nuggets, thriller-spy-action grooves.... Released at the same time, the two Psicotronica volumes feature a different musical theme on each side and are housed in cool full colour picture sleeves. Carefully remastered sound plus insert with detailed liner notes in English / Spanish

V/A: RAKS RAKS RAKS (EU re) NEW 180-
Out of print album with 17 golden garage psych nuggets from the Iranian 60s scene! Raks Discos is proud to present one of the most anticipated as well as unexpected compilations from the global depths of 60s and 70s rock'n'roll: The Persian scene. Let alone coming across with a representative compilation, even solid evidences of such a scene has not been seen until now and has been largely suspected, maybe save for a select few of eager garage and psychedelic record collectors and enthusiasts of worldwide rock, who have been trying to hunt such sounds on the internet and private collectors' circles, usually to no avail. Needless to say, the most important factor in this has been the obvious hideously rare status that Iran's pre-Revolution East-West cross cultural artefacts are in right now. As with almost all Asiatic countries, the Shadows and the Ventures seem to be the true and primal influence in the Iranian music scene of the most part of 60s for the rock sound and attitude to penetrate the country's fledgeling record industry and its swinging public base. In 1964, the legendary Top4 company opened up and started releasing choice chart hits from the worldwide lists, on 4-track EPs, followed soon by MonoGram and other companies. These mixed up records featured a lot of popular songs of the day, spanning the whole European continent i.e. including what's referred to now as 'Euro pop' hits and the 'big brothers', UK and US charts. The day's youth back then was lucky: they could follow the West moment by moment now. The foremost impact of these were to feature and spread British invaders, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, otherwise available only on radio. Come 1966, 60s was in full swing in Iran too!

V/A: TUMBÉLÉ! 2Xlp (Soundway re) M-/M- 200:-
Biguine, Afro & Latin Sounds from the French Caribbean, 1963-74'. A look at the unique and overlooked sounds from the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Lilting biguines, heavy gwo ka drums and tumbélé rhythms collide with the sounds of the carnival. Haitian, Congolese and Puerto Rican influences are added to the pot in a percussive celebration of Afro-Caribbean spirit. Often overlooked in the English speaking Caribbean, the scattering drums and soaring clarinets of the biguine ruled the airwaves and dancefloors of Martinique and Guadeloupe in the 1960s. This album showcases the vibrancy of the scene on the islands in the 60s and 70s - a scene that would go on to develop the all-conquering sound of zouk in the '80s. Uptown bands like Ensemble La Perfecta and Les Loups Noirs combine heavy rhythms and psychedelic effects in an inimitable style - check out the crazed Jet Biguine for a better idea! The deep and introspective sounds of Monsieur Dolor and Guadeloupean hero Robert Loison show the deep African roots of the music - songs born out of the plantations, with an insistent rhythm and mournful vocals that are unique to these islands. Overlooked outside of Paris, Montreal and the French Caribbean for many years, this collection redresses the balance by presenting the vital sounds of Martinique and Guadeloupe - missing pieces of the musical jigsaw puzzle of the Caribbean.

Hank Brown, the host of the show, still rules the airwaves of Central New York State with his top rated morning radio show. The original LP is a highly sought after lo-fi teen masterpiece. This collection of raw crude teen manglers presents the little known regional New York State rock n' roll scene. Cool package includes pix/notes/ interviews plus two newly found bonus tracks! This release kicks off a series of New York State garage sounds sure to please sixties sound hounds who dig their music RAW! Audiophile alert: This album mastered from a mint copy of the TWIST-A-RAMA LP. Due to the primitive fidelity and astonishingly low grade plastic used on the original 1965 pressing, surface noise is detectable. It is presented in the highest possible fidelity.

Dr. Boogie presents Wasa Wasa'. 'Fabulous Rhythm'n'Blues Shakers on the Dancefloor 1952-1968'. A fine opportunity to remind everyone that what was called rhythm and blues in the late '50s and came from 'race music' was the marriage of the word rhythm which designated a fast tempo and the word blues which brought to mind the unmovable 12-bar rule. Rhythm'n'Blues would become the vector that would let black music infiltrate white popular music and pave the way for the emergence of rock'n'roll.

Now released on heavyweight gatefold numbered (ltd. 300) vinyl. Licorice Soul Records' second volume of reissues is another great selection of rare funky gems and cult recordings. 'Working Man's Soul 2' celebrates the forgotten world of cabaret performers from the 1960s and 1970s, and selects the cream of the funky club cuts unearthed from records only previously available on privately-pressed albums. Manufactured by the artists themselves in miniscule quantities, these records were sold only at live performances at Social Clubs, Miners Welfare Clubs and Working Mens Clubs across the UK Their common theme is a strong groove designed to keep a busy dance floor moving - music performed down the Social to celebrate the end of the working week. Highlights include Russ Abbot's first cabaret band, Ron Dixon from 'Brookside' on a Barry White love-fest, jazz-fusion from Martin Hannett's sideman, and amongst the jazzy-soul Beatles, Stevie Wonder and disco covers, there are also unlikely funky versions of tracks by The Doobie Bros, Uriah Heep and Deep Purple...!
