We begin by saying that this is an album unlike any other. A bold statement, perhaps.
Yet look in the "Scented Gardens of the Mind" book and you will see this description
: "a revelation of a folk album, with songs of incredible beauty and innovative
arrangements. It features traditional instruments you've hardly ever heard before
and touches of the avant-garde. Play this album directly after that of another
randomly chosen female folk album, and you will notice the difference! This is one
of the best!" Parrenin had been part of a traditional "antique folk" movement in
France in the late 1960s (she was in many ways a French equivalent to Sandy Denny or
Mandy Morton); indeed, she had recorded eight albums with musicians from this scene
before "Maison Rose"-her best, and last album, recorded in 1976 and released the
following year. The record seems to alternate between a cosmic take on an ancient
Breton sound, and delicate, multi-tracked ballads-ranging from sounds that would not
be out of place on an Ash Ra Tempel album to elements of traditional French folk music
(including home-made instruments) that are just as exotic. Certainly, the avant-garde
edge lurking beneath the simple folkiness of "Maison Rose" puts in mind the
explorations of Brigitte Fontaine with her sometime musical voyager Areski; there
are also suggestions of the pastoral caranavserai aesthetic of Vashti Bunyan, as well
as the multi-track sensuality of Linda Perhacs (to name two much-touted singers who
seem to have a similar ability to enchant). But Parrenin has her own style, her music
has its own deeply ethereal quality, and the album itself has its own magic spell to
cast that renders comparison with other albums unimportant in the end. Magnificent.
we say. Now, on to the presentation-the highest quality mastering and pressing (done
at Acoustech Mastering/RTI in California, the same people who master and press every
title that audiophile label Classic Records makes); the resulting LP is housed in a
poly-lined sleeve, inside an ultra-heavy 1960's style gatefold jacket, which is housed
in a loose-fitting plastic sleeve. Inside the sleeve, you will find an insert with
full details on Ms. Parrenin, printed on 100% recycled paper. The LP labels are
replicas of the originals. A top of the line pressing all the way. Limited edition
of 500 copies.

This is the only album they recorded, originally recorded in 1970. It is a strange
record with backwards tape slices, abrupt song changes, yet in the same time it is
very accessible and very groovy. It is a profound mystery how it has vanished from
the consciousness of even the most devoted fans of obscure music. Now, on to the
presentation-the highest quality mastering and pressing (done at Acoustech Mastering
/RTI in California, the same people who master and press every title that audiophile
label Classic Records makes); the resulting LP is housed in a poly-lined sleeve,
inside an ultra-heavy 1960's style jacket, which is housed in a loose-fitting plastic
sleeve. Inside you will find an insert with historical background on the Uruguayan
scene, details of the bands past, plenty of photos, as well as a brief overview of
the legendary Sondor label, printed on 100% recycled paper. The LP labels are replicas
of the Sondor originals. A top of the line pressing all the way. Limited edition of
500 copies.

A heavy, oft-sampled slab of Bay Area history, and a PSYCH FUNK MASTERPIECE that
cannot be denied. Aura formed in 1974 and played extensively throughout Northern
California. By 1976, the band recorded their first and only album at Pacific Recording
Studio in San Mateo. The original title of the album was meant to be 'Sativa', but
out of fear that promoting the joys of marijuana would be too controversial, the band
omitted the title and just left it as 'Aura'. Over the ensuing decades, the 'Aura'
album has grown in stature to become a major soul/funk collector's item. It features
a number of major funk tracks plus funky ballads with female vocals. Standouts include
'Sativa' (heavy 70's funk with waterpipe sound effects and blistering guitar), and the
manic fuzz-guitar jam 'Skyrocket.' Old style tip-on jacket and quality limited ed.
vinyl pressing, mastered from the original tapes. Psych-heads will be interested to
know that the line-up of this band included guitarist Reggie Weiss, former member of
'60s garage/popsike teen-heroes THE LEMON DROPS!

The title alone is portentous, at the very least semi-evil sounding. Fear not, there 
are no devils, demons, or witches lurking in these woods. Instead we have a heretofore
almost completely unknown and rarely spoken of album of nine original tracks, self
-released on the legendary RPC Records label by a group of self-motivated teens from
Pennsylvania. Luckily for lovers of musical mayhem, the Case got access to their school
music room and a four-track recorder over a Christmas break in 1971. A rock-solid,
hard-driving rhythm section lays down the necessary underpinning for moody organ and
beautifully-toned guitar. There is sheer joy at play here, a kind of rock 'n' roll
exuberance-with ample raw talent and wicked riffing-which shines through on every cut.
Terrific raw, primitive album, simultaneously loose and intense, like the Velvet
Underground at their best. Terrific primitive album recorded in 1971 by some very
advanced high-schoolers during their Christmas vacation, self-released on the legendary
RPC Records label Color insert includes notes by the band + rare photos 180 gram vinyl,
limited to 500 copies.

Repress! Only few available, so order fast! The first authorized reissue of this
psychedelic masterpiece comes on 180-gram vinyl, in an old-style tip-on jacket.
Included is an insert offering info and band history by band leader Nick Freund, plus
photos from his personal archive. The Search Party was the brainchild of (then
Reverend) Nicholas Freund. Having left Wisconsin to join a burgeoning West Coast
religious scene, Freund made his way to San Francisco in 1968 to lay down this sole
effort with some of his students. The result is a spooky trip that's equal parts acid
\-soaked mind expansion and God. Laced with haunting vocals and dreamlike passages,
sinister farfisa, blasts of fuzz guitar and downer lyrics, 'Montgomery Chapel'
represents psychedelic music at its most evocative and, thanks to its depth and sense
of anxiety, most spiritual. The ominous nine-minute drifter 'So Many Things Have Got
Me Down', for example, tackles the difficulties of an unfulfilled married life,
depression and spiritual apathy, all while riding a stripped down, grooving beat.
If you can imagine a lo-fi United States Of America/Jefferson Airplane hybrid, you
have an idea of how cool this band sounds. Originally only 600 copies were pressed and
issued on the Century custom label. These copies have become holy grails for psych
collectors. Artists as disparate as Current 93's David Tibet and Sonic Boom have heaped
praise on it. The Search Party definitely was one of the most unlikely-psychedelic
groups to ever record an album. Ed. of 300.

There's no way to know why CBS Records unceremoniously dumped Rotomagus and the Chico
Magnetic Band after one single apiece; suffice to say that decision was a poor one,
as both bands have (quite rightly) developed a cult-like following over the years.
All in all, the artistic trajectory of Rotomagus was peculiar: they started out as a
harmony pop-psych band, shifted through a brief Jimi Hendrix-ian interlude (The Sky
Turns Red), straight into a Vanilla Fudge groove; they then went down in flames as
a hair-raising monolithic heavy rock power trio. On Julian Cope's excellent Head
Heritage website, the Seth Man raves about Rotomagus thus: "The first time I heard
this track (Fighting Cock), I did not freak out. I merely walked into a nearby closet
and screamed my head off for a minute solid, beat the floor and ripped my t-shirt...
then I cowered when it hit me: this thing came out in 1971? Before "Raw Power"?! I
just lost my mind... The only thing that predates this monster in terms of being a
full-on amassing of all things heavy are all the many key points on Sir Lord
Baltimore's "Kingdom Come" LP and THAT'S it, brother." French magazine Rock & Folk
was succinct: "Rotomagus create an emotional music, violent, even aggressive."
Violent. Aggressive. Intense. On this disc we bring you the entire output of Rotomagus,
including an album-length demo from 1971, the bands tumultuous, thunderous swansong,
recorded as a super jam (live with no overdubs). The Lion Productions and Martyrs of
Pop edition of Rotomagus comes replete with a bi-lingual 32-page booklet, with the
entirety of the Seth Mans article on the band, plus the bands history in both English
and French, printed on FSC recycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper,
manufactured using biogas energy. Hard to believe this is all pre-1971, as much of
the demo is not just proto punk but proto hardcore-with enough fiery attitude to make
you want to scream along. The vocals are wild, while the guitar riffs and grinds and 
approaches a Stooges via Motorhead apocalyptic grandeur.

Laurence Vanay is the pseudonym for Jacqueline Thibault, wife of producer and musician
Laurent Thibault (Magma). Her debut album 'Galaxies' (1974) is almost entirely
instrumental, with gorgeous keyboards, tasteful acoustic/electric guitars, and even
a little Zeuhl bass. There are wordless vocals on many of the tracks, although she
occasionally sings in a soft, seductive manner. This spacey avant-garde prog-folk
affair is a holy grail for anyone into cult music from the French '70s underground,
rivaled only by the early work of Brigitte Fontaine. Rare pix and Jacqueline's
remarkable story are included.

                (NOte : LP/180 g. , 500 copies)

This rare private press jazz/space rock album has been on reissue-wish-lists for years,
and now the time has come! This is a limited edition of 500 vinyl copies, including a
colour insert featuring notes from the band. "A unique jazz-rock album with major
space-rock vibes. You have to love the way the bass counters the effects-laden guitar
solos and heavy fuzz. Considering how many loner folk and hard rock private press
albums came from the same time period, discovering something this ambitious and unusual
is a real kick. Most of the time, it sounds like the world's best exploito-jazz record,
Herb Alpert filtered through Pink Floyd and Quiet Sun." -Acid Archives.

Keeping a band together was difficult in the late 1960s. Tough too, because Michael
Oosten was writing songs that veered away from pop-song structures. There was also
the relative ease and lack of responsibility required for hauling around a guitar.
So, Oosten took off, with a Martin guitar in tow, playing coffeehouses and clubs
across the country. By the end of 1973, he was ready to record an LP-five psychedelic
folk/rock tracks, ranging from the brightly smiling Sunny Day to the epic Hungry Horse
Montana, where Oosten switched seamlessly from Celtic picking to Middle Eastern chord
progressions. Oosten filled out his folk/rock/psych sound with the help of a few
friends: piano from Tom Hennick on Hey Babe, vocals from Jan Reek on Garden, and bass
from Al Byla on Sunny Day. Oosten's wayward vocals puts us in mind of other meandering
faves from various eras (Incredible String Band, Perry Leopold, or the Meat Puppets,
to name but three), and Oosten proves himself a stellar guitarist in an eccentric and
percussive mode. Considering the individualistic nature of the album's genesis, no
surprise that marketing and publicity for the album was limited. Columbia Records
expressed interest in Oosten's music; but after a single meeting with the label, it
was clear that the album would be too difficult for the mainstream honchos to market.
Oost and friend Lester D'ore (editor of Chicago countercultural paper Seed and designer
of the Yippie flag) holed up at D'ore's Wisconsin commune farm to silkscreen each LP
jacket by hand. For the deluxe Lion Productions replica edition, they've done that
again-we've used the original screens for this hand-screened, hand-assembled replica
edition. The work of a renegade, ripe for rediscovery. Hand silk-screened jackets,
using the original screens. 180 gram vinyl w/replica labels + color insert. Sleeve
notes by Michael Oosten. Limited to 500 copies.

        inlay delving into the history of these titans of hard-rock. This raw-edged
        heavy rock, fronted by Lino Ajello's powerful electric guitars, channelled the
        dark, jagged energy of Jimmy Page, Adrian Gurvitz (the classic in the attic
        guy'?), and Jeff Beck. Their influences were primarily Led Zeppelin, Jimi
        Hendrix, The Yardbirds but their overwhelming power and killer melodies make
        them irresistible)

Limited second press of 300 copies. Hypnotic, mystical, hippie psychedelia and acid
folk, dominated by long and largely instrumental sections, all based on a complex
interplay of recorder, hand drums and acoustic guitar. In 1972 Vancouver-based
Ptarmigan recorded the basic tracks for what would become their only album. Finally,
in 1974, Columbia Records released the album to critical acclaim, but minimal sales.
Ptarmigan's album is one of those hidden gems from the '70s that make life better when
you discover them many years later. For those who know the LP it's an undisputed
classic! The huge insert offers lyrics, liner notes from the band, and more. Wonderous
and wonderful!

vibe and featuring organ, violin and two guitars. Though most of the band's music
lacks a rhythm section, two of the tracks do include bass and drums. For fans of
a.o. Amon Duul, Popol Vuh, Czar, Caravan, and Ash Ra Tempel. Limited to 500 copies
including a colour insert.

One of the "holy grails" of Indianapolis private-pressdom (surpassed only by Zerfas
and Anonymous) is available again in its original format! Ray "McKay" Pierle and his
musically-adept brothers and friends partied, jammed and partied some more on Indy's
south side throughout the mid-70's, forming a band (Loos) which managed to garner
zero media attention at the time. However, Ray's trusty Teac four-track was always
close at hand and countless hours of home recordings were induced onto magnetic tape,
as well as a few songs laid down at a local studio. After a brief hiatus, the core
members reconvened as McKay, and created their sole document, the 300-press "Into
You" album (1978); the LP was given to friends and family and consigned in nearby
record shoppes. A mere 15 years had to pass before the collecting world discovered
the highly-personal songwriting, tight playing, and not-so-well-hidden West-Coast
stylistic touches. A vinyl reissue was locally produced back then but it's long gone,
so here's a new all analogue, master tape edition for a new generation to savor.

First time reissue of this vaunted power pop classic! Limited edition of 500 copies,
including a colour insert with notes, lyrics, and photos from band leader Jeff Lescher.
Green arrived in the mid-1980s, amidst a Chicago scene that included bands like Naked
Raygun, Big Black and Ministry (and eventually, Material Issue and Smashing Pumpkins).
Green bypassed the major label-express that many of those other bands rode to fame and
fortune, and continued to make records their own DIY way, records which were lauded in
the pages of Trouser Press, Spin, and The Village Voice, among others. And with each
passing year there are an increasing number of folks who are convinced that their debut
LP is worthy of those Mojo/VH1/Spin/ lists of the top 50 or 100 rock albums of all

                (Note : LP , 500 copies)

Limited to 500 copies, this LP offers all of 49th Parallel's singles, B-sides and
rare alternate recordings on vinyl for the first time since their initial pressings
back in 1966-'68! The band's first single, 'All Your Love', was recorded in 1966 as
the Shades Of Blond and it was previously only available on a staggeringly rare EP
featuring Calgary bands. Their debut as 49th Parallel came with 'Laborer' b/w 'You
Do Things' in mid 1967, followed by 'She Says' b/w 'Citizen Freak' in early 1968.
These four tracks are hard-edged garage punk outings, tough, and thick with fuzz
guitar and a defiant sneer. The next single, 'Blue Bonnie Blue' b/w 'Missouri'
appeared in the late spring of 1968. In spring 1969, the beautiful 'Twilight Woman'
b/w 'Close The Barn Door' zoomed up the charts across Canada and parts of the USA.
Both 'Twilight Woman' and the hit follow-up, 'Now That I'm A Man' b/w '(Come On
Little Child &) Talk To Me' are melodic slices of pop/psych of the purest and finest
kind. One more post-LP single and a couple of rare tracks round out the story. These
fifteen tracks will delight anyone who's into the 49n Parallel's late '60s album, and
this style of music in general.

A great vinyl reissue of this much sought after 1972 album from the Uruguayan scene.
Montevideo Blues was founded by Gaston "Dino" Ciarlo as a way to fuse the rawness of
rock music with obscure native Uruguayan styles s.a. malambo, milonga and chamarrita.
This music is really grooving, edgy and features excellent angular guitar work. The
insert is packed with photos, detailed band history, and lyrics.

A vinyl reissue of the highly rated mid-'70s album by Uruguayan musician Pippo Spera.
Featuring lilting melodies, infused with an undercurrent of bossa nova, this record
sounds like a summertime sunset. All of this melodic loveliness is made ever-so-groovy
in an Afro-Cuban sort of way thanks to tasteful contributions from world famous
percussionist Jorge Trasante, Totem's drummer Roberto Galletti, and Limonada's drummer
Jos‚ Luis Sosa.

Canadian underground psych masters JARVIS STREET REVUE, best remembered for their 1970
LP 'Mr. Oil Man', which remains one of the most extreme albums ever to appear through
major Columbia. Their three singles date from the same period and the band also made
recordings for a proposed second LP that never saw the light of day. This LP collects
all the bands A- and B-sides plus the songs for that second album, which was supposed
to be titled 'Strands Of Time'. Also included is an insert with background liners,
photos and images of sheet music for several songs. Ed. of 500 copies.
LION    152     THE LOST SOULS          THE LOST SOULD                  2LP     02.2022

"The Lost Souls never released any records, yet the meager recorded evidence that
survives indicates that they were one of the finest unknown American groups of the
mid-'60s, able to write both catchy British Invasion-type rockers and, in their
latter days, experimental psychedelic pieces with unusual tempo changes and song
structures. The band were also unusual in their occasional embellishment of the
typical period guitar-bass-drums lineup with flute, sax, and mandolin. Although
popular in their Cleveland hometown, they broke up in 1968 to attend college.
Rhythm guitarist Denny Carleton, who wrote and sang some of their best material,
went on to briefly join The Choir, their chief (and more successful) rivals." 
~Richie Unterberger. The music scene in Cleveland in the mid to late 1960's was ripe
with talent: the James Gang with Joe Walsh and Glenn Schwartz, The Choir, Eric Carmen
(pre-Raspberries), Glass Harp with Phil Keaggy, the Damnation of Adam Blessing...
and the Lost Souls. Of all those bands, only the Lost Souls never released a record.
Then again, they were in high school, trying to navigate dress codes and bullies -
and playing in front of a couple thousand fans when not suspended. Sure, they lost
a battle of the bands at Teen Fair 1968, but it was to the James Gang with Joe
Walsh. And somehow it is the Lost Souls who emerge from that time and place with
the greatest mystique and some of the most adventurous music, music which few have
heard. Lost Souls main songwriter Denny Carleton released a cassette of the band's
original recordings in 1984. It received airplay on hundreds of college and public
radio stations in the USA (and around the world), and garnered glowing reviews...
and that was it, until now. Not only is this the first time the music of the Lost
Souls has been available since that cassette, the Lion Productions edition is the
first release for many additional Lost Souls cuts, including alternate versions of
key tracks like the insightful 'Things That Are Important' and 'I'm Falling' (the
closest to a hit the band ever had), all taken from the original tapes and carefully
mastered. Seven bonus tracks highlight the work of Lost Souls' main songwriter Denny
Carleton (one-time member of The Choir, and more surprisingly, punk legends the
Pagans); selections by The Choir, Moses, Milk and Carleton, many in all possible
low-fi glory, recorded on various 4-track devices, ranging from power-pop to grimy
garage. Includes 8-page booklet with the full story of the band and info on the
recordings by Carleton and a multitude of unseen photos from his personal archive.
Carefully remastered from the original tapes (+ the occasional post-Lost Souls
45 single). "One of the great lost groups of the '60s." ~Option Magazine.

A vinyl issue of the follow-up to Jacqueline Thibault's (Laurence Vanay) 1976 album
'Evening Colours'. 'Les Soleils De La Vie' (or 'The Suns Of Life') was recorded with
the help of her perpetual musical accomplices Serge Derrien (guitar, flute, wordless
vocals) and John Chevalier (a.k.a. Popov) on drums and percussion. In spite interest
from Decca Records this album remained unreleased at the time. Now these shimmering,
mysterious, sometimes funky, deeply emotional examples of musical beguilement are
available for the world. Limited to 500 copies, housed in deluxe tip-on jackets.

Reissued on vinyl, here is a legendary and much sought after pop-psych LP by a Canadian
band, originally out in 1968 on the tiny Toronto-based Boo Records. The band had
previously recorded no less than four 7-inches for Columbia, but for reasons unknown
that label refused to release a full-length. Nevertheless, this s/t LP (which includes
the Columbia singles' sides) contains a truly delicious mixture of catchy '60s pop,
sunshine vibes and acidy rock. This edition is limited to 500 copies.

More or less sounding like a trippy mixture of Barrett-era as well as early '70s Pink
Floyd and T.Rex gone progressive pop, this undisputed cult album from 1972 by French
musician Dominique Blanc-Francard sees its awaited reissue on vinyl, including an
eight-page insert booklet in French and English.

After nearly twenty years of work, finally a proper reissue of this sought-after
album by The Souls Of Inspyration, first released on Columbia in 1970. Sought after,
yes - and deservedly so, with stellar keyboard-driven, melodic songs, strong vocals,
and an overall sense of cohesion. Terrific acoustic driven songs like 'Eyes Of
Nature' and 'Sun Shines In The Winter' merge beautifully with hard-edged,
progressive-tinged offerings like 'Dil Kusha (Heart's Happiness) and 'Of Lambs
And Wolves.' The Souls Of Inspyration emerged from Sherbrooke, Quebec. They had
two big breaks: they recorded this album with famed producer Don Grashey (49th
Parallel, Jarvis Street Revue and yes, discoverer of Loretta Lynn!); and they were
chosen for a two-week engagement at the Expo 70 Canadian pavilion for the 1970
World's Fair in Osaka, Japan. After Expo 70, the band were happy: they had been
chosen the best band to represent their country, and had brought back a nice plaque
signed by the people of Japan and Prime Minister Trudeau. They felt they were going
somewhere. But it was not to be. Read all about why and how in the beautiful
12-page insert booklet. Now is the perfect time to discover this beautiful
aberration, one of the unspoiled jewels of the late psychedelic era - on vinyl
cut from 24-bit/96kHz transfers of the master tapes! Comes on orange vinyl.

and powerful bass and drums. And its all analogue to enhance the 1970s flavour.
"If you like ELP influenced prog served up to you hot and heavy there is an hours
worth of intense pleasure here. Highly recommended." ~Ken Golden/Laser's Edge.
Limited to 300 copies.

Based in Nice, Carpe Diem was a French '70s progressive outfit that also incorporated
influences from jazz and classical music into its song writing. Here's a fine vinyl
reissue of the band's debut-LP, originally dating back to 1976. The success of this
album brought the group dates with other major French bands like Magma and Ange.

This is a stunning collection -which took more than fifteen years to put together- of
hot, rare tracks that combine cumbia with psychedelic rock. Starting in the late 1960s,
there was a boom of tropical music in Peru, both in Lima and the provinces. Cumbia
Peruana merged this tropical sound with that of psychedelic rock. Aspects of cumbia
were mixed with electric (often fuzz) guitar, played over Andean and jungle rhythms.

The first ever release of a heavy, acid-rock influenced power trio that was active
in Denver, CO during 1971-'72. This album of archival material consist of recordings
that were produced by bouncing tracks back and forth between two-track and four-track
reel-to-reel tape recorders. And these guys didn't forget to add some weird and spacey
effects along the way either. This LP-edition comes with a large 8-page booklet,
offering lyrics, photos, plus interesting and funny details about Umbra's history.

The first official reissue - or in most cases, re-release of any kind - of these
Cambodian rock recordings since their initial release as singles. Comes with an
8-page full color booklet with info and photos supplied by Sinn Sisamouth's surviving
family. There were no deluxe studios for the musicians who recorded the devastating
tracks contained herein. Nothing so grand. Most of these tracks were recorded live,
with traditional instruments finding a place alongside any keyboards or guitars that
could be found. And yet, it was the experiments of Khmer rock musicians which
transformed the nightlife of the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh - and which many
years later continue to seduce listeners around the world with their groovy sound.
The music is wild and anarchic, rhythmic and undulating, or sweet and lyrical, but
always moving and with that deep soulfulness, regardless of actual musical genre
or style, that is the hallmark of the best and most important music. The lyrics
often tell stories of angst, death, betrayal and sorrow. But there is a very real,
deep, inescapable tragedy in these grooves as well. Alas, in 1975 came an entirely
different type of transformation: the rise to power in Cambodia of the fanatical,
anti-Western Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot. Within roughly four years, implementing
their "concept of Year Zero," Pot and his regime were responsible for the deaths
of an estimated two million Cambodians (roughly 21% of the nation's population),
many in the notorious "killing fields." Even the most famous and beloved Khmer
musicians could not escape. Sinn Sisamouth, the "King of Khmer music"; Ros
Sereysothea, the "Golden Voice of the Royal Capital"; and Pan Ron - all featured
on this collection of songs written by the majestic Sinn Sisamouth - met their
deaths at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. Jon Swain, who was the Sunday Times war
correspondent in South Vietnam and Cambodia at the time, said: "Educated people,
musicians, people with glasses... a lot were taken to the killing fields... so the
great singers disappeared." To us, the richness and deep soulfulness of Cambodian
music is akin perhaps to what was excavated from Ethiopia and embraced worldwide
over the years thanks to the 'Ethiopiques' series - this despite the geographical
and cultural distance between the two very different nations. It really is one
world, not three.

The first ever vinyl issue of these recordings. Comes with a 12-page full color booklet
with band info, photos, and lyrics Newly remastered by Earthforce band leader Steve
Bayfield. We doubt whether the name Earthforce will be familiar to many, mainly due
to the fact that they merely existed for a couple of years, with only a 60x copy
private press cassette release in 1977 to their name during their time together.
Earthforce were a musical collective out of step with the punk age, children of the
UK free festival scene - events like the Psilocybin Festival - enjoying a connection
with the earth, singing meditative songs with lyrics about the "moontide of the pagan
heart" and the "wind blowing seaward." The end result is a fantastic album, loosely
charting the course of a day, from dawn to moonrise. The diverse instrumentation
(sitar, 12-string guitar, flageolet, electric guitars, fretless bass, harmonium,
doogi, synthesizer, acoustic guitar, percussion, tabla, cymbals, etc.) are used in
ways which bring unexpected wonders to the Earthforce sound. And if the late date
of Earthforce's existence is at all worrying to you, as you probably remember,
Caedmon's legendary debut album, also released as a private pressing - and one of
the most sought-after progressive folk-rock albums from the UK - came out in 1978.
Had Earthforce opted for vinyl instead of cassette for their release, we have little
doubt that an Earthforce LP would be at least as sought after as the Caedmon LP - and
so, with that idea in mind, Lion Productions have made an Earthforce LP. Praise for
the long out-of-print CD reissue of Earthforce: "Ultra rare mid-'70s UK acid folk
rock recordings. Features sitar, moog, acoustic and electric guitars, assorted
percussion instruments to create a Popul Vuh like soundscape. If you can imagine
the perfect blend of Eastern trance/psych and English hippy acid folk rock, this
would be it. Very cool and freaky." "Earthforce were an offshoot of Ebling Mis and
Oa Band formed by Steve Bayfield. Hailing from the UK, the band was influenced by
a wide variety of music including English folk and acid rock. This release is culled
from sessions that have never been released before, and they sound like a cross
between Popul Vuh and Gong. Very tasty, very spacey and mystical vibe throughout."

As one half of the mythical Argentine duo Sandhy & Mandhy, responsible for the 1969
cule-LP 'Para Castukis', Alberto Vanasco Jr. (Mandhy) resumes his musical tale with 
2 tracks written between 1968 and 1978. Recorded with the analogue essence and sound
of the '70s, using vintage instruments like Farfisa and Hammond organ, and fuzz
guitar, the album features Argentine rock legends Nexus as the backing band. 'Negra
Ciudad' brings together all of the crucial elements of Argentine rock music, including
psychedelia, heavy blues, classic rock and progressive rock. The LP is pressed in
a run of only 300 copies, only 100 of which available for distribution. So don't
sleep on this one!
LION    184     SIDEWINDERS             CUACHA!                         LP      04.2019

First-time reissue of this 1987 sleeper rural rock classic. The Sidewinders formed
in the spring of 1985. The group released 'Cuacha!' in 1987 (and again in 1988),
and subsequently signed to RCA/Mammoth Records, with whom they released two full
length albums, 1989's 'Witchdoctor' and 1990's 'Auntie Ramos' Pool Hall.' 'Witchdoctor'
cracked the lower echelons of the Billboard 200 on the strength of two rock radio hits.
The band scored exposure on MTV and VH1 and embarked on a worldwide tour. But the
Sidewinders were soon sidelined due to legal problems stemming from a challenge over
the band's name. As the Sand Rubies, they released an album on Polydor/Atlas in 1993
(at one point, Pearl Jam served as their opening act). However, the strain of the
legal tussle led the Sand Rubies to dissolve during a tour in 1993, just as two other
Arizona rock bands, Gin Blossoms and The Refreshments, attracted mainstream attention.

Now finally available on vinyl is Berlin School-inspired electronic musician Jeff
Carney's third album 'Live Electronic Music', which was his second effort for
AudioFile Tapes. Originally issued on cassette in 1989, this work is a relatively
sparse, evolving tapestry of analogue timbres, whereas his previous outing (1988's 
Imperfect Space Journeys') was a true electronic wall of sound.

Ultra-rare rehearsal sessions from 1969 by this South African heavy psych/acid
rock band, mastered from a tape transfer - and yet still doom-laden, dark, heavy,
and as messy as can be, in all the right ways. Influences from heavy bands of the
time, such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Steppenwolf are noticeable, with
proto-doom and psych/funk undercurrents. Do you like fuzz guitar? You're going
to hear it screaming and wailing and building to epic tidal waves and crashes,
the kinds of astonishing guitar cascades not heard since you cued up the best of
all available live Jimi Hendrix recordings.

Traveling the spaceways as Spiral Galaxy, flautist/painter Sara Gossett and treated
guitar/machines manipulator Plastic Crimewave (of Plastic Crimewave Syndicate/Galactic
Zoo Dossier magazine) have created devotional sonic voyages and droney soundscapes
with the occasional rhythmic pulse to conjure the textural and kosmische vibe of
'70s German seekers like Yatha Sidhra, Emtidi, Popul Vuh, Achim Reichel, Sand, and
early Kraftwerk. The duo's first album contains expansive tracks they had been
performing live on tours in the UK and Italy, plus USA events like Chicago Psych
Fest, Milwaukee Psych Fest, Far Out Nashville festival, and The Feed Me Weird Things
series in Iowa City. Treating the studio as an instrument, new layers, instruments
and collaborators were added to the heady mix, like special guests Jean-Hervé Péro
of legendary avant-German collective Faust (who Spiral Galaxy was lucky enough
to open for, and collaborate with on stage); Kawabata Makoto of Japanese communal
psychlords Acid Mothers Temple on chants and spoken voice; and Alisha Sufit of UK
'70s eastern-folk band Magic Carpet (also chanting her heart out). Also appearing
on the album are guitar wunderkind Ryley Walker (playing backwards guitar on this,
not easy!), Taralie of Spires That In The Sunset Rise on Terry Riley-ish circular
sax, sitar-player Hands of Hydra, Moog-maestro Will MacLean of Protovulcan, and
Christian Luke Brady of meditative Virginia cosmonauts Fargon. What results is
a dense, hallucinogenic, sonic tapestry of an LP that covers many moods-from
divine soundscapes to krautrock's motorik beats, doomy experimental pieces to dark
acid folk, and beyond. Limited to 300 copies on black vinyl.

Co-release with Cardinal Fuzz CFUL 163.
