    3 HÜR-EL

    3 Hür-El

    [engl] One of the very few, if not the only one, Turkish groups not doing any covers but only self- penned compositions, the mighty 3 Hür- El were three brothers: Onur, Haldun and Feridun Hürel. Having played together for their whole life, it was in the late 60's when they took the 3 Hür- El 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 and coming with an insert, with liners and photos.

    3 HÜR-EL

    Hürel arsivi

    [engl] ...And their second longplayer which came out in 1976 also on Diskötur, this is an absolutely killer of an album and easily one of the top Turkish ones. It has a more Western feel...Feridun was here infected by fuzz virus and his two- arm guitar (one for guitar, one for saz) will give you no rest. Also there's much more drums than percussion now, so we get an astounding blend of psychedelic rock with Turkish tradition, plenty of distorted fuzz guitar and electric saz. Comes with an insert, with liners and photos.

    AFTER ALL

    After All

    [engl] Hailing from Florida, After All was formed by well- experienced musicians with an R&B, jazz and blues background who hooked up with poetry writer Linda Hargrove to record an ambitious album influenced by acid- rock and psychedelic, early progressive sounds. Originally released in 1969 on the Athena label, the album is now considered an obscure classic. Top level psych/prog dominated by Hammond organ / guitar plus explosive drumming. Heres a welcome new reissue in original artwork plus remastered sound, insert with liner notes, and 180gr vinyl. ''Overlooked but pretty good moody late 1960s organ & guitar psych- rock with a Doors influence. The album is dominated by an unusual creeping menace a la Freeborne...'' Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)

    AGAMENON

    Todos ríen de mí

    [engl] Hippie group from Madrid, this is no doubt the most acid psychedelic rock album recorded in Spain in the 70's. This is their sole album, originally released in 1975 on the Explosion label and a very rare and collectable item. No one knew anything about the group members until now, it had been even rumoured to be some Argentinian guys living in Spain...but no, the group was formed by 2 female and 4 male and the brainhead was Carlos Garcia, who sadly passed away not long ago and to whom this reissue is dedicated. 10 tracks, 8 of them in English and 2 in Spanish, all originals and fantastic; there's lots of heavy acid fuzz guitar here, probably the wildest fuzz recorded in Spain (''Todos rien de mi'', ''Send me'' or ''I need money''), and also some great sunshine psych- pop (''Cuco go fly'', ''Al salir el sol''), and it's all very well packed with some of the best multi- vocal harmonies you can find in a Spanish record ever. A truely fantastic album that we strongly recommend!!! This first ever reissue comes with an insert with some never- seen- before pictures and infos about the band, plus a repro of a very rare band poster. Dig the cover artwork too!!!

    AIRBUS

    Test flight

    [engl] West Coast Consortium spinoff Airbus never played live or even released a record during their 1970- 1972 lifespan, instead spending their entire subterranean existence holed up in their self- owned London studio, writing and performing innumerable high quality demos and then attempting to place those songs with major label acts. But, more by accident than design, they came to leave behind THE Great Lost Early 70s British Pop Album - a jaw- dropping collision of superb songs, dazzling vocal harmonies, intelligent lyrics and hook- laden melodies. Here, then, is the strange, previously untold story of a band that didn?t leave so much as a footprint in the musical sands, but recorded a greater number of three- minute pop nuggets than almost all of their contemporaries. 500 copies limited pressing in 180g vinyl with detailed liner notes.

    ANT TRIP CEREMONY

    24 Hours

    [engl] Some albums just exist due to the fact that the band is about to break up and with that knowledge in their mind the members wish to capture at least a tiny bit of the magic they created playing their stuff at rehearsals and concerts. These kind of of albums are way more personal like a picture book of memories than records made for the commercial market. '24 hours' by ANT TRIP CEREMONY is such an album recorded by a bunch of high school students soon to part ways after their exams. It is nearly impossible to get hold of an original of which only 300 copies existed. Fans of late 1960s jammy psychedelic rock and dreamy folky singer / songwriter style tunes will go crazy for this collection of songs. Among them you find coverversions of Eric Andersen, a well known singer / songwriter of the day, Allen Toussaint, a famous songwriter, producer and soul musician, Billy Roberts, who wrote the ultimate rock classic ?Hey Joe? as well as a couple of contributions of people close to the band next to a handful of originals. The band had a quite unique expression while their overall style fitted well into their era. Some more or less intense but never really heavy rock songs, some mellow tunes that make your spirit drift away into gardens of delight painted in surrealistic colours. Fans of JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, THE BYRDS, THE GRATEFUL DEAD, THE CHARLATANS and other similar heroes and legends of the late 60s West Coast scene will dig this primitive version of the super stars. The songs here are all incredible and definitely made to last for a lifetime. And so they enchant fans of relaxed rock for nearly 50 years already. A lost crown jewel of 60s music.

    AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR

    Aqua Nebula Oscillator

    [engl] A song title like “Ready to fly” actually gives you all necessary information to categorize the album in your hands as psychedelic spacerock that certainly makes you recall the ancient days of the 1970s when HAWKWIND ruled and LSD was the hot shit to get up from the ground and trip through open space. “Ready to fly” is for certain one of these typical up tempo space rock songs with a straight and hypnotic beat, oscillating synthesizer lines, swishing distorted guitars and monotone chants buried under layers upon layers of echo effects. What has been great in 1972 can still capture your spirit more than forty years later. But there is more behind this album than meets the ear. It begins with a four minute long drone entitled “Kâ” made of sitar sounds coupled with swirling synths and strange voice samples. Next comes “Ready to fly” as the prototypical space rocker followed by “Take a long walk”, which could not be more different then. Here we have folky psychedelic music that flows gently with a haunting, melancholic melody and some fine guitarleads lost in reverie. Early P.F. during their days as the hottest band in the London underground club scene in 1967 come to my mind. And we move on from here to heavily grooving yet utterly washy and simmering power rock with vocals that mill into your mind and back to these gently floating psychedelic folk with guitar sounds that feel like whale chants, swirling synthesizer noises in the back, dark and melancholic vocal harmonies. You want your space and heavy psychedelic music colorful, viola, these French trippies deliver the goods in a way that will please every acid rock fundamentalist who concentrates on the 60s and 70s scene as well as all the desert rock aficionados who were born too late for the freak outs in Swinging London back in the day. And be sure, this is much more than just a record full of music. This is the key to unlock the gate to a world of color, joy and passion where love can be felt as a physical force. The 1960s garage psyche of bands like THE THIRD BARDO, the acid outbursts of the embryonic P.F. and HAWKWIND’s straight ahead space rock drive combined could hardly match with the music of their heirs.

    ARCESIA

    Reachin' Arcesia

    [engl] A classic since the year zero of rare records collecting and the ''Incredible Strange Music'' scene, ''Reachin' Arcesia'' has always been the cause of many rumours and bizarre stories. We set the record straight with this, the first ever legit reissue of this legendary album, featuring detailed liner notes telling the real story of the great John Arcesi for the first time. Arcesi was a veteran singer of the big- band era who in the early 70s recorded a pop album with help from an anonymous hip studio musicians. The album was released in a private edition of 300 copies and most of them were given away to family and friends. In the late 80s, one of those copies was unearthed by rare record dealer Paul Major, who was one of the first persons to appreciate the singularities of ''Reachin' Arcesia''. Since then, the album, which mixes over the top crooner vocals with late 60s acid- rock / pop arrangements is now considered a lounge- psych / real people masterpiece. Gatefold sleeve with original artwork on back and new cover design on front. Detailed liner notes inside telling the real story of John Arcesi and rare photos.

    ATHANOR

    Flashback

    [engl] Chicago, early 70s. Greg Herriges is obsessed with Lennon, 12- string guitars and far- out psychedelic sounds. Rick Vittenson is a Beach Boys- Hollies- Who fanatic who writes for Crawdaddy! magazine. Both had previously played in several garage- college bands during the 60s. Combining their mutual love for Sixties music, Athanor was born. With the help of top studio musicians, they recorded and self- released three 45s between 1973 and 1975 (the first one produced by Mark Breyer, with whom Rick had played in pre- Skooshny band Brevity) which are now highly sought- after by fans of obscure psychedelic pop. All of them are featured here in stellar sound taken from the master tapes along with previously unreleased studio tracks and superb sounding home demos (1973- 1981), plus a new song recorded in 2006 in the same vein as their vintage recordings. Athanors music features impressive songwriting & musicianship, a collision of Beatlesque harmony vocals, Rickenbacker & Guild 12- string guitars, occasional fuzz- wah leads, Fender Rhodes, studio effects. Psychedelic proto- power pop highly recommended to anyone into Lazy Smoke, Badfinger, Only Ones, Emitt Rhodes, Rockin? Horse, Creme Soda.?

    Inside out: the demos 1973-1977

    [engl] The follow- up to our acclaimed ''Flashback'' (Guess110), finds Athanor (the duo formed by Greg Herriges and Rick Vittenson) digging deeper into their archives and coming out with and amazing set of previously unreleased recordings, done at their state- of- the- art home studio back at the time. Captivating Beatle'esque, fuzzed- out psychedelia & folk- rock full of Lennon- esque vocals and 12- string Rickenbackers by '70s Chicago wunderkind duo. 1973- 1977 recordings plus one '70s- era track cut in 2014 with Jeff Murphy (Shoes) on backup vocals. Basement psych- pop and proto- power pop has rarely sounded better! Remastered sound from the original tapes, insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things/Got Kinda Lost) and Jeff Murphy (Shoes).'' These aren't longing, writing demos with tossed- off guide attempts, but instead full- form creations? The pulsating waves of snaking fuzz opening the set with ''Love Shining'' prepare you for the trip with an indelible riff, while moments of soul exorcism lay bare elsewhere'' - Jeremy Cargill

    AVALANCHE

    Perseverance kills our game

    [engl] Absolute masterpiece when talking about progressive / psychedelic folk- rock from Europe. Dutch band Avalanche was formed in the early 70s and recorded their only album in 1979. ''Perseverance kills our game'' was released as a private edition of 500 copies, which were only distributed among friends and relatives. Despite being a home- made project (the album was recorded in just one day!) the result was stunning.Totally early 70s sounding electric folk- rock with flute, piano, bass, drums, and killer fuzz guitar. Mostly instrumental with a few vocals in English. It alternates delicate acoustic passages with devastating fuzz leads, sounding like Fairport Convention jamming with early Ash Ra Tempel. The album closes with an extended 11 minute track on which guitar player Daan Slaman starts playing leads like a madman, creating layers and layers of liquid acid- fuzz guitar. It has to be heard to be believed! First ever LP / CD reissue, done in cooperation with the original band members. Insert / booklet with rare photos and liner notes by Richard Allen.

    BABY WOODROSE

    Dropout

    Incl. huge Extraposter & Sticker! BABY WOODROSE are here to offer you another mindblowing experience taken from the deep vaults of their castle of insane garage-punk. This time they´ve recorded 10 coverversions of psychedelic masterieces from the sixties, originally performed by bands like LOVE, THE PAINTED FACES, LOLLIPOP SHOPPE, THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS and CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, to name but a few. Soaked in endless fuzz and wah-wah orgies, some of the songs are really close to the originals, while others got their very own BABY WOODROSE treatment and end up even more off one´s trolley than the classics have ever been. They even do a cover of "The world ain´t round, it is square" by the SAVAGES and after you´ve listened to this album, you won´t be sure anymore if the world is really round, or maybe it is still square.

    BARE SOLE

    Flash

    [engl] Previously unreleased demo album from 1969, UK. The loudest band from Hull in the 60s, Bare Sole played raw, in- your- face psychedelic hard rock and heavy blues. Bare Sole?s brief existence at the tail end of the 1960s reflected the realistic trappings of their geographical situation. Musical icons such as Mick Ronson and Robert Palmer would eventually rise to fame outside of their native Hull, but Bare Sole sadly only managed a handful of out- of- town gigs and a tour of US air bases in Germany. As it was, their entire existence fitted inside just over a year, but at least their inspired musical legacy has survived thanks to a 1969 recording session held at Fairview studios. Assisted by writer and producer Keith Herd and galvanized by an enthusiastic local poultry farmer, Bare Sole captured their primitive garage mannerisms inside of one fiery recording session. Aside from Decca?s rejection of their demo tape, Bare Sole continued playing alongside acts such as Family, Status Quo, The Move and the Small Faces, but the inevitable decision to quit came in 1970 and their story came to an end. Presenting Bare Sole?s entire recorded history taken from the master tapes of their 1969 recording session. Their seductive garage romp boasts explosive doses of fuzz, wah- wah and Farfisa organ, a sound that recalled an earlier and more primitive sound, but a sound that also may have unwittingly sealed their fate. Master tape sound. Detailed liner notes.

    [engl] Kick- ass psychedelic / progressive hard- rock from Norway! Bazar was one of the most hard- working progressive bands from Scandinavia. This is their killer second album from 1974. Wah- wah fuelled guitar action, organ, flute, melodic vocals and radical lyrics. ''Drabantbyrock'' combines heavy numbers, West Coast guitar jams and dreamy moments, featuring the superb guitar playing of Bent Patey. Highly recommended for those into Swedish hard- rock bands such as November.

    BEAU

    Creation

    [engl] Originally released for John Peel's Dandelion label in 1971, ''Creation'' was the second album by underground folk troubadour Trevor ''Beau'' Midgley, recorded with psych band The Way We Live as backing group. Influenced by Tom Paxton, Leadbelly and Dylan, Beau started to write his own songs in the late 60s. After trying to secure a contract with Elektra Records with no success, he was approached by Clive Selwood (Elektra UK) and John Peel, who were launching a new label, Dandelion Records. Beau signed to them and released his eponymous debut album in 1969. For his second effort, Beau decided to experiment with a more folk- rock sound and add to the mix some avant- garde influences. Jim Milne (lead guitar and bass) and Steve Clayton (drums) from Dandelion stablemates The Way We Live / Tractor were the perfect backing band for him. ''Creation'' is a brilliant psych- folk / acid- folk offering with superb 12- string guitars, heartfelt vocals, studio effects and occasional acid- fuzz guitar. Beau's avant- garde influences came to the fore on the title track, which verges into White Noise territory. The album closes with ''Silence Returns'', featuring one of the most ear- splitting fuzz assaults ever committed to wax, courtesy of Jim Milne.

    BLACKBURN, JOHNNY & MARY LAUREN

    Echoes of love's reality

    [engl] Most would probably agree that this is one of the very best psych- style LPs from the 1980s. Not retro at all but (like Bobb Trimble) a piece of the late 1960s preserved from time's rust. Male/female vocals lament and serenade the quest for knowledge of love and beauty in an appealing soundscape, with lyrical guitar leads throughout, good use of mellotron, occasional tablas, flute and bells. The recording has a definite 1981 sound but (again, like Bobb Trimble) this somehow becomes an advantage. There's not a questionable song on this album, recommended to anyone open for a soft, dreamy trip inside the melancholy and bliss of an acid- tinted romance.'''' (The Acid Archives). High- quality reissue in 180g vinyl, nice carton with original artwork, unbeatable remastered sound quality and also including the huge 16- paged booklet with lyrics and drawings. 500 copies limited release.

    BLISS

    Bliss

    [engl] Psychedelic hard-rock / heavy blues with loud fuzz-wah guitar and powerful drumming by this power-trio from Arizona, originally released in 1969. Bliss was born from the ashes of garage band The Sect. Legendary radio DJ and producer Hadley “Who Loves You Madley” (the first black disc jockey from Arizona) took them under his wing and produced some recordings. By the end of 1968, the five members of The Sect graduated and decided to break up. Soon, they reformed as a trio with Martin (bass), Reed (guitar) and Aldred (drums). Reed came up with a new name, BLISS, which not only reflected his spiritual interest but it was also more in vein with the new psychedelic sounds of artists like Cream, Blue Cheer or Hendrix. Under Murrell’s guidance, the trio recorded a full album, released on L.A.-based Canyon Records in 1969. Canyon, home to artists like Doris Duke or Swamp Dogg, was a label more focused on R&B, soul and funk than psychedelia so, not surprisingly, the album slipped through the cracks. It wasn’t until a couple of decades later that Bliss was re-discovered by psych collectors, who were attracted to the album’s heavy & bluesy psychedelic sound, highlighted by Reed's hard fuzz-wah guitar and Aldred's powerful drumming. The album offers a mix of great self-penned tracks (including two by Murrell) such as “Visions”, “Ride The Ship Of Fools” and “Cry Of Love” – which bears a striking resemblance to The Zombies “Time Of The Season”! – plus a few covers (Joe Tex, B.B. King, Johnny Guitar Watson…) 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.
