    End of the line / Perspectives

    [engl] The genesis of Havenstreet goes back to 1969, when Phil Ridgway and Jeff Vinter played in The Gas, an experimental psychedelic band heavily influenced by Barrett- era Pink Floyd. The two friends started to write songs their own songs, ending up as a folk duo. With the offer to record some of their material at a friend's studio, they recruited more musical friends?so Havenstreet was born. The influences had expanded now to bands and artists such as Peter Hammill, Strawbs, Traffic, Procol Harum, Stackridge, Keith Tippett, Bert Jansch?In the early- mid 70s they recorded a couple of albums which circulated as private cassettes among friends and relatives. In 1977, Havenstreet released ''The End Of The Line'', a self- released album in a private edition of 250 copies. It was collection of very English songs with evocative, literate lyrics and a stunning progressive folk- rock sound. It featured one of the earliest known tributes to Syd Barrett on the song ''When the madcap meets the world''.

    Tolle Ausgrabung, die nur kurze Zeit aktive US-amerikanische Garage-Psychedelic-Band als limitierte LP mit Bonus-7" und Beiblatt. Die Kalifornier bestanden nur von 1966-1968, veröffentlichte in dieser Zeit drei Vinyl-Singles auf Kleinstlabels, die heute kaum zu finden und schon gar nicht zu bezahlen sind. Das sollte sich mit der vorliegenden Compilation aller Singles und auffindbaren Demos ändern - qualitativ steht die Band, die den später durch Steppenwolf berühmt gewordenen Song "Born To Be Wild" als zu langweilig ablehnte, geistesverwandten Psychedelic-Garage-Größen wie den 13th Floor Elevators, Seeds oder Love nämlich in nichts nach. Nach einzelnen Tracks auf einschlägigen Samplern wie der Pebbles-Reihe endlich das komplette Werk (17 Songs) auf einer schicken Liebhaber-LP mit Bonus-7"

    Vrt Svetlosti

    [engl] Second album by this Yugoslavian band from 1980, typical in sound, style and emotional expression for the classic Eastern European progressive sound. The symphonic aspect with straight but very mind blowing synthesizer harmonies and cheerfully grand guitar leads have taken over the scepter from the debut album’s more space rock oriented direction here. A colorful, very lush but still strong and visionary ocean of melodies and sounds capes opens up before your ears and invites you to dive deep into your imagination. IGRA STAKLENIH PERLI have indeed created a “garden of light”, for this is what the title would mean in English. This is a floating stream of majestic rock that recalls the greatest European fantasy prog acts of their era such as ELOY, OMEGA from Hungary, the earlier FAITHFUL BREATH and GDR greats such as BERLUC when it gets heavier or LIFT. And you can bet, IGRA STAKLENIH PERLI know everything about dynamics, so they turn up the volume and rock like wild beasts when the music demands it. So, folks, don’t be shy, don’t hesitate, take a seat and let the fantastic journey begin.

    [engl] The International Love Corporation is a project formed by former Out of My Hair front man and songwriter Comfort aka Simon Eugene. A roaming collective of musicians that gather together wherever they find an opportunity to do so, the ILC concept started originally as a club in London that itself had its roots in an art led project ‘Western Power Trip’. The ILC has a fundamental philosophy at its roots as the search to find meaning in the common concepts of what love really is and how we relate the understandings in our treatment of each other as people of this world. The International Love Corporation is a band and at the same time an ethos. It is as the name suggests, a gathering of people, with a few core members, but anyone can be a part of this. A reaction to all the crap that goes on in the world, that is constant, just with ever changing players. Trying to find the light within the dark. The ILC has moved between countries. Its founder, Simon Eugene aka Comfort, has journeyed across the world with it. Setting up in different continents to create moments of celebration around the concept. The Experimental Shape of Happiness is an album is about love, of wanting to reach something higher. But if you’re going to preach that message then you have to question first what is love? And then you have to question yourself, about where you are at as a person, because you can’t start singing about these virtuous things without looking at who you are in all of that. So the ILC is about a personal journey and also creating this immensely positive atmosphere of celebration whilst understanding the conflicts within that, recognizing the dark within The light. This is what the Experimental Shape of Happiness is about. And the song Shelter captures that more than any other. To create that atmosphere, in its recording, everything had to be done live, old style, the band all set up in one room, everything bleeding into everything else, and just going with it. Nothing fake, nothing programmed. Just the moment of happening. Trust in each other. I think we all believe that each time we get together magic happens, just by the ‘declaration’ of it. The name inspires us to be that, in the moment, just this fantastic bond that exists between anyone who is part of it.

    A Place In The Sun

    [engl] "A Place In The Sun" is a vinyl anthology of Rubble / British Psychedelic Trip cult heroes JASON CREST, including a selection of their classic ’68–69 psychedelic singles for Philips ("Turquoise Tandem Cycle", Black Mass", "A Place In The Sun", etc...) plus their unissued at the time studio recordings/demos. The result is a great British late 60s psych album, recommended if you like Tomorrow, Procol Harum, Moody Blues, Small Faces, The Move, The Who et al. The origins of Jason Crest are in beat band The Good Thing Brigade. Originally from Kent, they made quite a stir in the London club circuit, supporting established groups like The Who and The Moody Blues. No wonder they caught the eye of en vogue producer Fritz Fryer (Open Mind, etc) who got them a contract with Philips, changing their name to Jason Crest after one of their songs, "’The Collected Works of Justin Crest". Between 1968 and 1969, the band released five singles and left behind a bunch of unissued demo recordings / acetates. Jason Crest’s music run the gamut from brilliant psych–pop full of wah–wah organ to Mellotron / phasing fuelled introspective numbers and even heavy acid–psych / proto–metal on the freaky "Black Mass". Sadly, due to lack of success and problems with the label and between the band members, the band split after releasing their last 45 in 1969. Vocalist Terry Clark joined hard–rock band Orang–Utan, whilst the remaining members formed High Broom (featuring ex–Mike Stuart Span / Leviathan guitarist Brian Bennett). In 1971, Clark, along with fellow Jason Crest members Derek Smallcombe and Roger Siggery, formed Holy Mackerel.

    It Crawled Out Of The Vaults Of KSAN 1966-1968 - Volume 2: Live At The Fillmore Auditorium 1966 & 67

    [engl] Here we go with some awesome underground live material from one of the most important psychedelic rock pioneers in history of mankind. JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, ladies and gentlemen, in a very early incarnation when Skip Spence and Signe Anderson had just made way for the goddess of psyche Grace Slick on vocals and Spencer Dryden on drums to form what should become the classic line up leading this band to their huge success. Four of nine songs also appear from their cult album ?Surrealistic pillow? released in 1967, two more have appeared as part of ?Jefferson Airplane takes off? in 1966. There are later live versions of ?Fat angel? and ?Other side of life? on the 1969 live album ?Bless it's pointed little head? but these are the earlier, more rough edged and insane psyche out recordings of both beautiful pieces. Well, you get JEFFERSON AIRPLANE on this record, bare naked and honest to the bone. Just as they had been when they plugged in and played. The sound is amazing, raw and wild but clean and powerful enough to give every instrument and voice enough room to unfold. Technically not overwhelming but with a feeling of passion and dedication that only a true live recording can capture. And from every note that is played here you can feel the breath of the era where the cold war nearly turned into a very hot one and the world stood on the edge of a nuclear war while down in Vietnam ... well you all know the story. It was a time when the people freed themselves from the frowst of the past and lived a self destined life. This recording is an eye witness on historical developments. But however you behold it, it's awesome music by awesome people. This is indeed a little masterpiece and will please any fans of late 60s psychedelic sounds, die hard JEFFERSON AIRPLANE freaks and whoever cares for the best ever period in music. A must have!

The oddly–named, eminently talented quartet from the college town of Davis was together less than a year from start to finish, yet within that short time created a record renowned for powerful performances, solid production values and the brilliance of its song craft, with a full playlist of compelling material like ’Electric Sailor, ’ ’Lemonaide Kid’ and ’Trieulogy.’ Kak can stand nobly alongside records like Surrealistic Pillow, Electric Music For The Mind And Body, Sailor or the first Moby Grape album, as one of the most satisfying listens of the late 1960s SF rock renaissance. This newly remastered vinyl edition features extensive liner notes by Kak aficionado Alec Palao, with contributions from band members Gary Lee Yoder, Dehner Patten, Joe–Dave Damrell and Chris Lockheed.

    Les Baxter's Jungle Jazz

    [engl] PLUS 4 BONUS TRACKS! Les Baxter (1922-1996) used to be an utterly talented composer and bandleader who was on the go to the max during his active years. His version and as I should say vision of jazz music was a contemporary fresh and colorful sound with an exotic vibe due to the use of many elements of latin music within a modernized big band sound. We speak of the exotica and space age era when jazz music became more than just a few musicians on stage in a back street pub sweating their life out while improvising. He draws inspiration from the various swing orchestras of the late 1920s and combines this lush big band approach with a hot south american groove that shows an affinity for Cuban club music, for mambo and salsa. With rhythmical effects and a few wordless female vocal passages added he builds this haunting jungle atmosphere on top while leaving out the too obvious animal voices. The latin jazz and swing elements harmonize fairly well with each other and the melodies Les Baxter and his orchestra create drag you into a different world. You can dance to this or just close your eyes and float upon this gentle river of sound. The tunes are all built and arranged like a movie score which is no wonder as Les Baxter has been a soundtrack composer ever since. What makes this record so special are the pictures that come to ones mind with the always changing soundscapes it features. It is by far not only an evergreen jungle forest with big cats, apes and savage men hunting for white goddesses but also an urban jungle with grey skyscrapers growing beside the dirty streets, a bridge between the exotic dreams of each young American in the 1950s and the often gloomy reality in the big cities. But it is always a joyful experience. The album gets performed by an orchestra of extraordinary talent with an exceptionally tight interplay and still sounds fresh and powerful after nearly 60 years. A reissue is welcome to drag it back into the light of attention as many younger jazz fanatics might have overlooked this gem due to whatever circumstances. This new edition makes sure ?Jungle jazz? survives and infects a whole new generation of swing kids.

    [engl] Little Big Horn evolved from Luton–based pop–psych band Wild Silk. As occurred with many British bands from the 60s, they adopted different musical influences as the decade progressed and "underground" was the thing to be, so by the late 60s, Little Big Horn incorporated West Coast, Americana and hard–rock elements to their powerful sound. Their sole album was released only in Germany in 1971 as part of a deal between Shel Talmy Productions and the Bellaphon label (along with other obscure acts like Sunday and Diabolus) and it’s an interesting mix of rootsy Americana and heavy rock. Here’s the first ever legit vinyl reissue, expanded to a double LP set with the addition of the killer 45 B–side "Just A Game" and excellent unissued material from the time. Transferred from original master tapes. Gatefold sleeve plus insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Alec Palao.

    Slow Down

    [engl] It’s now three years that the Madcaps have been roaming France and its neighboring lands with their pearly, Italian guitars and their champagne old drums. With 150 shows under their belts, they managed to save up enough to head back to Kerwax recording studio, analog Mecca of Western France. While there they churned out their third album, Slow Down, recorded live with all four Madcaps together in the same room, all in an effort to capture on wax the energy from six months of touring that shaped this album. If the first two albums were more the brainchild of lead singer Thomas, Slow Down evens things out with Bastien and newcomer Wenceslas asserting themselves as both singers and songwriters. Despite personnel changes and new musical directions, the Madcaps have never sounded more unified. They continue to gouge out their own particular rock and roll groove while leaving behind the adolescent garage of their beginnings. The pop melodies are still there, but the songs are more stripped down and spacious, leaving room for horns, piano, organs, congas and acoustic guitars, hitting by turn shades of rhythm and blues, soul, country western, and even calypso.

    Shape Of Things To Come

    [engl] 1968, garage rock, psychedelic sounds, mind expanding substances and wicked colorful fantastic movies pointing at a probably strange future or dealing with the then current dissatisfying political and social situation or with the abuse of drugs were the hottest topics of the time. The Vietnam War had reached a preliminary peak in its progress, the atmosphere was full of either love or fury. A great time to create a movie about a future society of young people taking over the reign in the USA and the first step on their path to success was a rockband, MAX FROST AND THE TROOPERS. Not much is known about the musicians who either participated on the soundtrack of the movie or on this sole album by MAX FROST AND THE TROOPERS. The band name TROOPERS is based on the term "troops," the designation Frost was used in the film to refer to his friends and followers. What we get to hear on the new reissue of “Shape of things to come” at hand is both: the entire studio work of MAX FROST AND THE TROOPERS plus the entire soundtrack album for the “Wild in the streets” movie and it is getting enormously colored and from time to time quite bizarre. The musical range goes from fuzzed out garage beat via soulful high energy rock numbers to a small quantity of acid freak outs. The compositions show a straight and accessible structure with a decent dance groove as it was usual in the contemporary pop music of the day. Some tinges of psychedelia like howling fuzz guitars, darker harmonies and swirling sitar lines were added for the good measure. All 19 songs here prove to be memorable pieces of late 1960s acid pop and despite the movie related revolutionary and political statements in the lyrics all tunes drive you into a state of sheer bliss when spinning the record. So if you are a fan of late 1960s acid pop and garage psyche in the vein of THE THIRD BARDO, THE SEEDS, THE STRAWBERRY ALARM CLOCK and THE MUSIC MACHINE, look no further ‘cause you’ve found the holy grail!

    A Total Electric Happening

    [engl] MIND GARAGE are one of those dozens of bands from the commercial bottom section of the psychedelic rock genre in the late 60s, rather unknown to the record buying audience due to the fact they came from the Christian music scene, similar to THE SEARCH PARTY with their “Montgomery chapel” album. Just a bit more professional in the sense that these guys here are real musicians with the aim to play music and not a bunch of talented people from a Christian community that puts the word of the lord into a garment of flashing and swirling acid rock. MIND GARAGE also were different to the more trippy female fronted project mentioned above. Their music was built on blues drenched yet utterly dirty and fuzzed out guitar lines, some captivating organ carpets, naughty, angry vocals and a rather possessed kind of power drumming that gave the music an irresistibly sexy groove in case they did not slow down for a mind melting trip into the colored depths of LSD based insanity. And they did all of this in the name of the lord. The sound is rough and you can hear that the band recorded each of them in one take with no overdubs but this proves how gifted with talent these guys were and how much love and effort they put into their music. And for sure the raw production makes the music feel even more gruff and honest. Beautiful garage psyche, as the band name already implicates, made for all fans of bands like THE THIRD BARDO, FRACTION, THE SEEDS, THE HEAD SHOP, HP LOVECRAFT, THE DOORS. So roll a blunt in praise of the lord and let the world feel the greatness of the holy smoke while enjoying this lovely ‘Freak-Out Rock’.

    [engl] With one foot in the harmony beat-pop of the Hollies and other in the early psychedelic pop experimentation of Revolver era Beatles and Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd, The Mirage left behind a string of 45s and unreleased studio recordings, a selection of which is presented here for the first time on LP. Featuring UK psych classics like “The Wedding Of Ramona Blair”, “Hold On”, “Ebanazeer Beaver”, “Mrs Busby” and many more! *Includes four-page insert with rare photos / memorabilia and detailed liner notes by Stefan Granados The Mirage were a quintet from Hertfordshire, England, formed in 1965. Fuelled by two gifted songwriters (Ray Glynn & David Hynes), they were soon recruited by Dick James (music publisher of the Beatles and the Hollies) as session musicians. Allan Clarke and Graham Nash from the Hollies were so impressed with them, that they took them under their wings, helping them to get a deal with CBS. Between 1965 and 1968, the Mirage released and self-produced seven singles for different labels (CBS, Phillips, Page One…), including titles like “The Wedding of Ramona Blair” (pure psych-pop perfection, included on Rubble in the 80s), “Hold On” (a mod-psych classic), “Tomorrow Never Knows” (a surprising cover released at the same time as Revolver, thanks to their Dick James connection), “You Can’t Be Serious” and more. But they also recorded lot of stuff that never saw the light of day at the time. These unissued songs run the gamut from magical Hollies inspired harmony pop (“Gone To Your Head”, “What Do I Care”, “I Want Love”…) to pure psychedelic pop, highly influenced by early Pink Floyd and Revolver era Beatles: “Lazy Man”, “Ebaneezer Beaver”, “Mrs Busby”…some of these tracks were included in the 90s on famous bootlegs like “Artifacts From The Psychedelic Dungeon” but now it’s the first time they’re all collected on a legit vinyl compilation, making “You Can’t Be Serious: 1966-1968”, the missing album The Mirage could have released at the time and a must for any UK psych aficionado. It comes with detailed notes by Stefan Granados (author of The Beatles and Apple Records: Those Were The Days 2.0 book, telling the interesting Mirage story, including their connections to Dick James, the Hollies, Spencer Davis Group, Caleb (of “Baby, Your Phrasing Is Bad” fame), Plastic Penny, Portebello Explosion…

    [engl] Influenced by bands like Pink Floyd (Piper at the Gates of Dawn in particular), King Crimson, early Yardbirds, the Byrds, the Beatles and various blues & psychedelic abands and artists from the '60's, the Moffs, a Sydney band, were around from 1983 to 1989 and they released a whole lot of vinyl on the Citadel label. Their shows were wonderfully laid back - you could easily sit on the floor with your eyes closed and just groove along to their music, or you could take a whole lot of illicit substances and REALLY get into it. They were surreal, atmospheric and groovy; think of jangly guitars, bass guitar octave runs, Farfisa organs and the occasional bells and chimes.

    [engl] Although “Morgen” has often been called the greatest psychedelic album few people have actually heard, the level of its visibility has rapidly been rising these past several years. Thanks to the miracle of the internet, word has spread about the disc and now that a high quality reissue is available, more folks obviously have the opportunity to own a copy of the rare artifact. Initially released on the Probe label in late 1969, the album was recorded by a New York band named after their lead singer, Steve Morgen, while lead guitarist Murray Shiffrin, rhythm guitarist Barry Stock, bassist Bobby Rizzo and drummer Mike Ratti cemented the group. Shaking with raw and sexual energy, “Morgen” carries the kind of urgency and excitement executed by bands like Love, the Doors and the Rolling Stones. Composed of all original material, the songs, which are dipped in acid-riddled acrylics and animated lyrics, really pull the listener in. Snarling with conviction and purpose, the vocals are utterly intense, where the guitar playing, sizzling with killer diller dynamics, exposes an allegiance to Jimi Hendrix. The whole band is amazingly fantastic, as they lock everything together with sweat dripping from their knitted brows and thunder and lightening crackling from their instruments. The first track on the disc, “Welcome To The Void,” with its seductively dark temper and shivery equations, sets the motion for the remainder of the songs. Huddles of hard driving rhythms, supported by drifts of imaginative breaks, powerful drumming and melodies are staples throughout. Moody but tough, “Morgen” has a lot going on, making it the type of record you can spin over and over and over again and still experience new sensations. A shot of flashy jazz riffs adorn the haunting grip of “Love” and “She’s The Nightime” tosses a catchy pop feel into the system. Stirring with life and spontaneous inspiration, “Of Dreams,” “Beggin’ Your Pardon (Miss Joan),” “Purple” and “Eternity In Between” are ideal illustrations of genuine psychedelic rock. Positively paralyzing, “Morgen” is one of my very favorite albums, and it should be yours too! Review made by Beverly Paterson/2013

    Psyche De Loid

    [engl] Munehiro Narita, the original ?psychedelic speed freak?, is for many people the undisputed king of acid- fuzz guitar. In active since the late 70s, Narita is a Japanese psychedelic underground legend. After playing in cult bands like Kyoaku no Intention, he founded the brutal heavy- psych power trio High Rise in the 80s. His furious guitar playing, which involves lethal doses of fuzz- wah at ear- splitting volume, can also be heard on his current band Green Flames (featuring Mitsuru Tabata from Acid Mothers Temple). In 2014 Narita released a Japanese only CD titled ?Psyche De Loid?, doing heavy guitar fuzzed- out covers of classic psych songs from the 60s/70s. But ?Psyche De Loid? was also the first ever psychedelic album recorded using the Vocaloid technology. Very popular in Japan, Vocaloid is a software / singing synthesizer: you enter the lyrics of a song into the program, add music, and then you can have one of the Vocaloids ? or ?Vocal Androids?, mostly female - sing for you in a bizarre ?android? type vocals. ?Vocaloid? is often associated with J- Pop but on ?Psyche De Loid? Narita smash this ?genre? into a wall with the contrast of killer, Ron Asheton- alike piercing fuzz- wah guitar and child- like ?android? vocals, featuring surreal covers of tracks by Stooges, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Shocking Blue, Pink Floyd, MC5, Jefferson Airplane?. Previously available as a Japanese only CD, here?s the first ever vinyl edition with new artwork.

Although it's highly demanded among Exotica lovers, "Let's Have A Luau" simply mixes narrative vocals, steelguitar and vocal harmony group backingsound. Don't miss this historic gem!

Insert with detailed liner notes and photos / memorabilia. The Peppermint Trolley Company was an exciting and unique 60s band from California that recorded several singles and an LP, The Peppermint Trolley Company, which has become a cult classic among psych–pop fans. The band members hailed from Redlands, California, and were: Danny Faragher, Jimmy Faragher, Greg Tornquist, Casey Cunningham, and, for a time, Patrick McClure. Influenced by bands like Beach Boys, Left Banke, psych–era Beatles & Stones as well as the heavier psychedelic sounds of the Doors or Jefferson Airplane, their music was an exciting mix of baroque–rock, sunshine pop and psychedelia, featuring delicate vocals harmonies and deep lyrics. Released in September of 1968, their self–titled album offers gentle folk rock ("I’ve Got To Be Going"); psych rock ("Beautiful Sun"); baroque pop ("Pat’s Song", "Reflections") and more surprises, closing with their multiple–movement masterpiece, the anti–war "Fatal Fallacy".

    Bloody Turkey Sandwiches

Electric acid folk with stoned homemade atmosphere, lo- fi sound, bizarre & funny lyrics, effects, backward bits, surreal humour, psychedelic skiffle and old- timey music hall parodies, brilliant folk- rock- pop and titles like ''''Interdrive Overstella'''', ''''Be Glad For The Song Has An Ending'''', ''''Pus In Our Time'''' and ''''Have you seen your neighbour in the bath''''.
