The second and best of the albums released by this British group, originally on Larry
Pages Penny Farthing label in 1970. The impressive opening track ?Out of Uranus? kicks
off this great album, filled with acid- rock and blues- rock with an aggressive
production and in- your- face guitar riffs all over. Also features a couple tracks more
into psych- pop, all pretty well executed.

Largely known for their fantastic album ?As I turned as I had turned as a boy? from
1971, a true folk- rock delight, British group Dulcimer had also recorded a second

Formed in Amsterdam in the late 60s, Windy Corner were a psychedelic folk- rock band
who rarely played live. Using self- made instruments and amplifiers, they recorded long
sessions at their rehearsal space in a cottage. In 1973, they released their first
album, 'The House At Windy Corner', a 100 copies custom pressing on the collectable
Deroy label.Underground progressive / psychedelic folk- rock with charming home- made
sound and fragile atmosphere. Dreamy vocals, organ, acoustic / electric guitars, bass
and drums, similar at times to other obscure lo- fi psych bands like A- Austr or
Ithaca, Agincourt... First ever reissue. Remastered sound, original artwork, insert
with liner notes and rare photos.'Something of an enigma in the collector's circle,
their ambitious and intricate long instrumental passages remind me of the British
underground group Sindelfingen and the more understated and meditative improvisations
of the San Francisco- bands Mad River (first album) and Grateful Dead (1968- 70). Windy
Corner's home recordings were generally quite strange and highly rewarding?' - Dag Erik

Pete Ryder, a key player on two of the most rare and sought- after private folk albums
from the UK. This time, the band recorded at a real studio and the result was 'Some
Other Morning', released in 1976 on the Koala label as a tiny edition of 250 copies
(four stars rating in the Pokora book). Gorgeous, atmospheric folk with ethereal
male- female vocals and magical atmosphere. Includes a superb cover of 'Hill climbing

Singer/songwriter Pete Ryder was a key player on two of the most rare and sought- after
private folk albums from the UK: Paradise Square and Cair Paravel. Paradise Square was
his first project, a group formed at Sheffield University's Christian Union in the
early 70s. In 1974, the band released their only album as a private pressing of 100
copies (five stars in the Pokora book). Fragile, homemade lo- fi psychedelic folk with
acoustic guitars, violin, delicate male- female vocals, Xian overtones and hints of
Incredible String Band or Dando Shaft. Remastered sound, repro of the original insert

(Note : originally released in 1971 on John Peel's Dandelion Records, Creation is the
        second album by underground folk troubadour Trevor "Beau" Midgley. Influenced
        by Tom Paxton, Lead Belly, 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) and Peel as they were
        launcing Dandelion Records. Beau signed with 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/acid folk offering with superb 12-string guitars, heartfelt
        vocals, studio effects, and occasional acid-fuzz guitar. Beau's avant-garde
        influences come 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. This
        first vinyl reissue includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks from 1972
        (featuring Tractor as backing band), recorded for aborted third album High
        Mass. Also includes four-page insert featuring the first cover design (which
        was never used), plus detailed liner notes by Beau himself and lyrics. Master
        tape sound.)

        Illingworth (ex-David John & The Mood). Little Free Rock were an underground

Bloody Turkey Sandwiches'' is another ultra- rarity by British psychedelic folk band
Pig Rider: only six copies were originally privately pressed by custom label Deroy in
1974. The music here is much in the same vein as their famous ''Heterophonies'' album
but even more crazed. Some of the tracks bring to mind the more experimental side of
Olivia Tremor Control / Black Swan Network or even They Might Be giants ?but only 20
years before those bands existed! Electric acid folk with stoned homemade atmosphere,
lo- fi sound, bizarre & funny lyrics, effects, backward bits, surreal humour, psych.
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''

Although nearly 60 people have played in Pig Rider or its various offshoots over the
years, there have only been two ever- present members, Colin Kitchener and John Mayes,
who founded the band at Sevenoaks School in Kent, England in the late 60s. They met
when they were 12, and not long after began haunting the music rooms at the school to
hammer out current three- chord pop songs on pianos. After a number of other names
(including D Jabferg Flossyakkit and Bob Scratch and his Country and South Eastern
Spring Blues Band) they settled on 'The Pig Rider Robinson Heterophony' to perform
under. After an attempt to build a seven- foot robot bassist called Peregrine Robinson
to front the band failed the name was finally abbreviated to its current form. Pig
Rider's music has been described as 'joke folk / mock rock' and although they claim
that their minds were only altered by lot of beer drinking, there's a real psychedelic
element to it. Also, they should be regarded as pioneers of the DIY movement which
would came a few years later. They recorded at home with rudimentary equipment, they
used handmade modified instruments ('orgasmatron', 'banjelele', 'torture machine',
'aquaphone', 'swanee bicycle pump'?) and they self- released a series of acetate only
albums housed in primitive, handmade sleeves.'Heterophonies' was originally pressed by
the custom label Deroy as a private edition of five acetates in 1975. The music is an
amazing mix of psychedelic electric folk, acid folk and twisted pop with funny/bizarre
lyrics, tape experimentation, effects and homemade / stoned atmosphere.

The English coast town of Hull produced a couple of highly regarded bands/artists,
including Mick Ronson, Robert Palmer and The Hullaballoos. The city also was home to
BARE SOLE, a heavy psychedelic rock and blues band that toured US air bases in Germany
and supported bands s.a. Family, Status Quo, The Move and Small Faces in 1969-1970.
Unfortunately the guys never released an album and vanished into obscurity. They did
however record a really fine demo tape (rejected by Decca) which now sees the light of
day as an official release. So if you're into seductive garage/blues/psych with
explosive doses of fuzz, wah-wah and Farfisa organ, don't hesitate! Liner notes are

First reissue; licensed from the original band members. Remastered sound. Incl. liner
notes and photos. Formed in Glasgow in the early '70s, White Light were not an ordinary
Xian rock band; influenced by the explosive sound of The Who, the hard blues of John
Mayall's Bluesbreakers, and even Black Sabbath, their live performances across the
country featured heavy rock sounds, howling feedback, phased lighting effects, and
commitment to the real enjoyment of rock music. They were formed not to play in
churches, but to take the message to the rock generation in loud clubs, halls, and big
rock venues. In 1972, they were finalists in a national rock competition organized by
Melody Maker magazine. This event encouraged the band to enter the studio for the
recording of their first album. The ultra-obscure Parable was originally released as a
private pressing in 1974 (it's featured in Hans Pokora's 7001 Record Collector Dreams
book with the maximum rarity rating). Housed in a mysterious cover, the music is Xian
hard psych straight from the garage with lots of raw fuzz guitar and Vox Continental
organ. Combining hard rock with heavy blues and dreamy moments, it features the monster
sidelong track "Prodigal," which has to be heard to be believed.

Cosmic acid-psych-soul-funk-prog extravaganza from Spain, 1971. Proyecto A was the
brainchild of the great Frank Dubé from Barcelona. What can one say about him? A truly
fascinating character -- a pioneer of rock and roll and twist in Spain during the late
'50s and early '60s, an accomplished accordion player, a showman, comedian, a psycho
aesthetics master -- but he should also be considered one of the first psychedelic
pioneers in Spain due to his groundbreaking work on the Proyecto A album.

Impossible to find Spiritual Jazz / Funk / Groove / Psych rarity from France, 1973.
Rupture was born when famous French songwriter Boris Bergman (France Gall, Dalida, etc)
decided to record a conceptual album about the history of Israel. He approached ace
drummer and singer Sylvain Krief (Airto Fogo, Michel Fugain, Aznavour, Clark Terry,
Bud Powell, etc) and soon, other musicians joined: Jean-Franois Jenny-Clark (Don
Cherry, Steve Lacy, etc) on bass, Georges Locatelli (Total Issue) on guitar, Jean
-Pierre Mas (piano, organ, guitar, vocals.) In resume, Rupture was a kind of super
group featuring some of the best musicians from the Euro jazz / progressive / fusion
scene. It also included collaborations by Michel Fugain and Nicole Croisille. The
album was recorded over a period of three months and the result was released as a very
limited private pressing with help from the Futura label. Arranged by Sylvain Krief
and Jean-Pierre Mas, "Israel Suite" included a side-long suite on side A and shorter
songs on Side B. An incredible mix of vocal / spiritual jazz, funk, progressive,
jazz-pop, psych.

There are few bands who can claim to have built their reputation on one single, but
such is the situation for Aragorn, formed in Chesire in 1978. They were one of the
first acts to sign to Neat Records as the new wave of British heavy metal erupted.
But fate conspired to ensure that they only ever released one single, the killer
Black Ice/Noonday (1981), which has definitely become something of a cult 45 among
aficionados of the genre. Here it is, along with 12 tracks taken from a then unreleased
album from 1982-83. A must for anyone into obscure, '70s styled hard-rock, and early
metal. RIYL: New wave of British heavy metal, Angel Witch, Motrhead, Witchfynde,
Black Sabbath. Remastered sound; Insert with liner notes and photos.

LP version. Sommor Records present the first reissue of Claude Lombard's Chante,
originally released in 1969. Presented in the original French edition gatefold artwork.
Produced by Roland Kluger (Chakachas, Free Pop Electronic Concept), arranged by Willy
Albymoor and recorded at the legendary Madeleine Studios in Brussels. Insert with liner
notes by pop connoisseur Don Sicalptico. RIYL: Stereolab, Broadcast, White Noise,
Delia Derbyshire, Astrud Gilberto, Roger Webb Sound."If you know the 1968 Eurovision
song, or the TV kids cartoons tunes which Claude Lombard sang, it will be hard to
believe what's happening there... Beautiful pop songs sung in French by this Belgian
maverick (who worked with Luciano Berio) swirling upon wonderful '60s abstract
expressionism orchestrations: chimes and ondes Martenots among lovely dream basslines
and organ drifting, with a dreamy use of echoes, reverbs and sometimes electronics.
There are incredibly beautiful songs here, and probably one of the unique examples
of French songs with really gorgeous, untypical sound work, closer to some UK and
US proto-psychedelic orchestration in pop world. It was by the time a complete
commercial flop... A shame of course considering the quality of compositions offered 
here by Claude Lombard herself, who have no shame to feel if one compares the elegance
of her work to an inspired and electronic version of Michel Legrand... Any serious
fan of Broadcast or Stereolab will fall in love forever with this true secret gem,
to say the least... And no need to mention the kaleidoscopic design of the cover,
mesmerizing and perfectly illustrating the content. Masterpiece here? Hell yes! And
you can forget about the cartoon tunes of your lazy childhood..."

Ear-splitting hard-rock/proto-doom-metal from the early '70s, Electric Funeral were
a pioneering Swiss hard-rock band who sadly never registered any studio recordings
at the time. Formed in the late '60s by Edi Hirt (drums), Pierrot Wermeille (bass),
Alain Christinaz (guitar), and Dominique Bourquin (vocals), they were influenced by
bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin. Famous for their loud (they
played behind giant stacks of Marshall amps) and powerful shows, their sound was too
heavy-sounding for a regular label to offer them a contract. The Wild Performance is
made of private live and rehearsal tapes recorded in 1970-very raw and lo-fi-but
it's the only testimony of their brutal sound. First released in 1991 as a limited
LP, this is an expanded edition with newly remastered sound and four killer bonus
tracks, taken from reels and tapes recently found in the band's archives. These
tracks were also recorded in 1970 except for "My Destiny", which dates to 1973.
The sound is still lo-fi but slightly better than the original tracks, especially
on the killer "You Can Help" (proto-punk  la Electric Eels), "My Destiny" and the
alternate version of "You Can Help".

LP version. Includes insert with lyrics, liner notes, and photos. Sommor Records
present a reissue of Flibbertigibbet's Whistling Jigs To The Moon, originally released
in South Africa in 1978. Whistling Jigs To The Moon is not only a very rare and
sought-after album but also a wonderful collection of traditional and original folk
tunes with a strong Celtic influence. Featuring Alison O'Donnell and David Williams
from psych-folk legends Mellow Candle. In 1974, following the break-up of Mellow
Candle, Alison and David arrived to South Africa. Once there, they met a couple of
fellow expat musicians, Barrie Glenn and Jo Dudding, forming Flibbertigibbet in a
niche folk and traditional circle of immigrant and local musicians, building up
a repertoire of tunes and songs both original and traditional. They appeared at
evenings held in communal houses, at folk nights and the Boksburg Folk Club.
Producer David Marks offered to release their album and launch it in a series of
concerts at the renowned Market Theatre. They enlisted the help of a number of fine
musicians on the recording, namely classical first violinist Francesco Cignoli, jazz
bassist Denis Lalouette, Nippy Cripwell on string bass, Colin Shapiro on flute, and
Dave Lambert on fiddle. Whistling Jigs To The Moon saw the light in 1978.
Master tape sound; includes insert with lyrics, liner notes, and photos.

Argus were an obscure British outfit with connections to Rare Amber and Julians
Treatment. Their sound was hard-hitting bluesy hard-rock, similar to Hackensack or
Killing Floor. In 1973, they recorded a five-track demo with the intention of securing
a record deal which sadly never arrived. It is included here along with a few live
tracks from post-Argus underground psych-prog outfit Anaconda. First time on vinyl.

Mysterious three-piece from Birmingham, Three-Headed Dog played underground hard-rock,
clearly influenced by early Judas Priest and Wishbone Ash. Before disappearing in the
mist of time, they left behind an ultra rare demo tape - recorded in 1973 - which
included a couple of cover versions from Wild Turkey and Edgar Broughton Band along
with self-penned material. This demo was handled to Norman Hood, manager of other Brum
bands such as Necromandus and Flying Hat Band, who was involved in promoting Three
-Headed Dog at the time.  First time on vinyl.

album from 1973. Remastered sound, colour insert with rare photos and liner notes by

from the ashes of local South Coast heavy-blues bands Baby Bertha and Sweet Poison.
Comprised of Dave Ellis (guitar), Pete Gibbons (drums) and Ian Mclaughlin (bass),
they played heavy rock influenced by Hendrix, Cream, Free and Peter Green's Fleetwood
Mac. In 1973 they cut a demo album of which 99 copies in blank covers were pressed
and later distributed between family and friends, with a few of them also shipped to
record companies in what proved to be an unsuccessful attempt at earning a recording
contract. The music is raw hard-rock with unrestrained guitar, Lemmy-esque vocals and
heavy psyche progressive touches.

First ever vinyl reissue of this fabulous French/West Indies Afro-jazz-funk-Caribbean
-fusion album from 1976, originally released on the Moshe-Naim label by poet/singer

Sommor Records present the first vinyl reissue of The Fox's For Fox Sake, originally
released in 1970. Sounding more akin to something released in '67-68, For Fox Sake is
a superb example of UK psych, highly recommended if you're into Apple, Koobas, Zombies,
Octopus, Skip Bifferty, Spencer Davis Group, Rubbles... Formed in Brighton in 1968
with roots to the mod-soul scene, The Fox consisted of Steve (Stephen) Brayne on lead
guitar and vocals, Winston Weatherill (ex-Gary Farr & The T-Bones) on lead guitar and
sitar, Alex Lane on keyboards and vocals, Tim Reeves on drums, and Dave Windross on
bass. During their brief existence they supported The Herd and opened for David Bowie.
Their sound was loud and righteous with great vocal harmonies, tight rhythm section
and wonderful keyboard/guitar solos. After getting signed to a London management,
they recorded their only LP in one session and they had it released in the UK on the
Fontana label and on the USA on Crewe, featuring a different cover. Sadly, the band
broke up following year and since the inclusion of "Butterfly" in one of the Rubbles
comps several decades later, they've become a cult group among psych collectors.
Remastered sound; Includes insert with photos/memorabilia, plus liner notes by band
member Steve Brayne. Includes original UK artwork.

LP version. Sommor Records present a reissue of Lucifer Was's debut album Underground
And Beyond, originally released in 1997 as a picture disc LP. Killer hard psych-prog
from Norway, Underground And Beyond from cult proto-metal band Lucifer Was, contains
songs written in 1971-72, but not recorded until 1997. Established in 1970 in Oslo,
Lucifer Was were a powerful psychedelic hard-rock/hard-prog band that lasted until
1975. During those years, they gigged locally and played at some big festivals but
they never got the chance to register any recording. The band hibernated until 1996
when they reunited again for a live concert. The chemistry was still there so they
entered a recording studio and recorded in just 18 hours their first ever album,
Underground And Beyond, featuring songs written in 1971-72. Their line-up included
two flute players plus bass, drums and the killer lead guitar of Thore Engen. Fully
'70s analog -- a powerful sound with devastating distorted lead guitar and flute.
Imagine a cross between Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath, and Atomic Rooster. Remastered
sound; includes color insert with liner notes by Klemen Breznikar (It's Psychedelic
Baby) plus rare photos.

Complete recordings by The Beatstalkers, 1963-69, the legendary band from Glasgow.

Williamson (replaced by Jeff Allen) and Ronnie Smith.

by Lenny Helsing (Ugly Things).

In 1969 Bracknell based blues rock outfit Levee Camp Moan released what was destined
to become one of the most sought after UK private pressings of the period. Issued on
the County Recording Services label (SVVS 132), a small run of discs was pressed up
and sold locally at gigs as well as being handed out to friends. Housed in an
obligatory custom built sleeve that had a snapshot of the group pasted onto the front,
this LP marked out their status as one of the most exciting bands to emerge out of the
thriving local underground scene in the Bracknell Delta.

Warlock could be considered the first satanic/occult hard-rock band from Spain.
With roots in proto-doom band Necrophagus, formed in Madrid by singer/guitar player
Victor Ramos in 1974, Warlock were heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, Lucifer's
Friend and Hawkwind but they were too dark and wild-looking for the record companies
of the time. During their brief existence, 1977-79, they supported the Ian Gillan
Band at the Teatro Monumental, Madrid, 1979. They also shared stage with bands like
Burning, Cai, Teddy Bautista & Canarios, Azahar, John Martyn, Eduardo Bort, etc.
In 1978, they recorded a bunch of demos, collected here for the first time. Raw and
wild lo-fi psychedelic hard-rock/proto-doom with space-rock touches! Includes colour
insert with photos, memorabilia and liner notes. Includes eight self-penned songs
with titles like 'Archives Of The Universe', 'Cortocircuito', 'Earth', 'Control
Perdido', 'Space Ritual' (which is not a Hawkwind cover but a tribute to Dave
Brock's band, whom Victor once met in France), etc, plus a cover of Black Sabbath's
'Paranoid'. Includes color insert with photos/memorabilia and liner notes.

Now available on vinyl, the eponymous, German-only album from this long forgotten
British hard progressive quintet was originally released in 1971. The somewhat rootsy
sound of Little Big Horn brings to mind equally little known UK bands s.a. Diabolus,
Steel Mill, Crazy Mabel and Sunday. This edition is expanded to the DOUBLE-LP format
with the addition of the killer B-side track 'Just A Game' and previously unissued
material from the same period.

SOMM    67      ZARPA                   LOS 4 JINETES DEL APOCALIPSIS   LP      04.2021

Originally released in 1978, now reissued on vinyl for the first time, this is a
conceptual album by a band from Valencia, Spain, featuring five long tracks with raw
in-your-face sound and production, over-charged fuzz and wah wah guitar, powerful
vocals with killer echo/reverb and other studio effects. 'Los 4 Jinetes Del
Apocalipsis' is a treat for any hardrock, doomy metal and heavy psych aficionado.
This edition comes with remastered sound, an insert, a heavy cardboard sleeve and
an obi.

Now reissued is the sole album (1971) by a London-based band named Hunter, feat.
vocalist Terry "Nobby" Clarke (of psych-pop legends Jason Crest), guitar player
Mick Clarke, drummer and songwriter Jeff Seopardi, and bass player Paul Roberts.
The LP was released in the US under the new band name Orang-Utan, but the band
members were not informed about this development. Musically we're talking blazing,
early hard rock with minor psychedelic hangover vibes, a twin-guitar attack, and
waves of fuzz/wah, along with powerful vocals. Fans of a.o. Leaf Hound, Budgie,
Bang and Sir Lord Baltimore need this album! This edition on WHITE VINYL comes
with a solid cardboard sleeve, an insert featuring the bizarre story of the
band plus rare photos, an obi and a download card.
