    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!!!

    EVERYONE INVOLVED

    Either / Or

    [engl] 
    First ever reissue of this UK private press masterpiece from 1972. Everyone Involved was a hippie collective formed by well- trained musicians, assembled by Alan Wakeman and Michael Klein (Solid British Hat Band) to record a set of environmental protest songs. Some of the members of this London based recording commune included vocalist Freya Hogue (ex- Sunforest), guitar player Lucinha Turnbull (later with Cilibrinas Do Eden / Rita Lee), and bass player Arnaldo ?Liminha? Filho (Os Mutantes) among others. Either / Or? is a perfectly played and professionally recorded album (something very unusual for a private pressing). Top- notch psychedelic folk- rock / acid- folk with male- female vocals, flute, electric- acoustic guitars, bass, drums and some freaky / weird arrangements- effects. The album is now also famous for including A gay song, which is probably the earliest known example of a pro- open gay song. The original pressing of 1000 copies was never distributed or sold at stores, all the copies were given away for free (even to people passing on the street!). One of the members even buried a large number of them in a time capsule at the Amazonas rainforest! Needless to say, the original album is a highly sought- after artifact since the early days of obscure psych- prog record collecting.

    PIG RIDER

    The Robinson Scratch Theory

    [engl] Bedroom / lo- fi psychedelia by these unsung heroes from the 80s DIY cassette culture scene. From outsider synth- pop to Barrett- esque lysergic folk, from lo- fi garage- punk to basement prog: acid- fuzz guitars, cheap keyboards, primitive electronics, homemade vibe and bizarre, funny lyrics. Pig Rider were formed in Kent, UK, in the late 60s by John Mayes and Colin Kitchener. With the help from some friends they recorded and self- released a series of acetate only psych- folk albums in the mid- 70s (''Heterophonies'', ''Bloody Turkey Sandwiches''?) which are prime examples of early DIY psychedelic music, highly sought- after since a review of ''Heterophonies'' appeared on the Galactic Ramble book. In 2013, collector Alexandre Mansuy (from the influential ''Somewhere There Is Music'' blog), having only listened to their ''Heterophonies'' album, found John and Colin and was astonished when they told him their story: ''Heterophonies'' was only one of their many, many great recordings, 22 in all, including 45s, acetates and tapes. Those included complete, and to date unperformed, opera for schools, a song- cycle about Luton, a town they knew nothing about; songs designed to be played backwards, songs which are slightly offensive and others which are too offensive to play at all, anywhere, ever.

    UNSETTLED SOCIETY

    17 diamond studded cadillacs

    [engl] Complete recordings (1969- 1974) of legendary US Acid- Punk band, famous for appearing on the seminal psych compilation ''Endless Journey'' back in the 80s. But Unsettled Society were a total mystery until now. The band came from the New York suburbs and were famous locally for their powerful stage shows, full of strobe and psychedelic flashing lights. In 1969 they released their first 45 for the Charm label: ''17 Diamond Studded Cadillacs'', which is pure acid- psych, lo- fi basement insanity. It was coupled with ''Passion Seeds'', a killer moody, atmospheric psych ballad. Between 1972 and 1974 they released two more 45s in a fantastic heavy psych vein, the last one recorded under the Thunder Head name. All of them are included here with sound taken from the original tapes. Fold- out insert with lot of amazing unseen photos and detailed liner notes by Charm Records boss Pete Huntley.

    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.

    FAIRFIELD SKI

    Fairfield Ski

    [engl] Birmingham's Fairfield Ski are one of the greatest lost UK psych/prog bands ever. With a line- up which included ex- Terry Reid?s band Bill Bonham (cousin of Led Zepp John Bonham) on keyboards, their only recorded legacy is one of the rarest artifacts from the first UK psych- prog era: only 3 copies are known to exist of the Fairfield Ski acetate album, recorded in 1973 at top London studios such as Trident, Abbey Road and Apple. A perfectly played and professionally produced record which ranges from full- blown psychedelia to glam, hard- rock, progressive- pop and dreamy psych. Echoes of Forever Amber, Five Day Rain, Octopus, Deep Purple, Procol Harum, ?Abbey Road? era Beatles and Appletree Theatre can be heard on the grooves of this lost classic. Fantastic remastered sound restored from the original acetate using state- of- the- art equipment Insert with rare pictures and detailed liner notes by Andy Morten (Shindig!) revealing the Fairfield Ski story for the first time

    LINNEGAR'S SNAKESHED, STEVE

    Classic Epics

    [engl] Steve Linnegar was an accomplished songwriter, musician, painter and martial arts disciple. A legendary figure from the South African 60s- 70s underground music scene, the ''hippie king of Cape Town'' formed the Snakeshed band in the 70s along with top guitar player Martin Kopelowitz and keyboardist / producer Peter Hubner. Refusing offers from some record labels who insisted they should go ''commercial'', they decided to record and release their first album, ''Classic Epics'', all by themselves.

    QUICK, BILL

    Maravillosa gente

    [engl] 
    Mysterious Bill Quick?.this guy was son of North- American dad and Venezuelan mum, and landed in Madrid in the early 70s, spending most of his time playing music and manufacturing leather belts and other stuff that he later sold at the popular Rastro flea market in Madrid, meeting point for all hippies of the time. He somehow got in touch with famous producer Alain Milhaud, who got really impressed by his work and quickly offered him a deal for recording a long- play to be released in Milhauds own Explosion label. Then Bill recruited some of top studio musicians and foreign friends who were also living in Madrid at the time; the list of people who play on the recordings is impressive: Salvador Dominguez & Chema Pellicó (ex- Cerebrum), Rafa Gálvez (later on Vainica Dobles backing band), Frank Rojas (Sangre), Jess Lam (Jess & James)?and up to eleven musicians joined Bill in the recording studio. As a result, ?Maravillosa gente? (Beautiful people) was recorded. Ranging from beautiful, introspective, acoustic solo tracks like ?Beautiful People?, ?Only the weather? or the acid- folk of ?Winters gonna come? to full backing- band hard- edged ones like ?Take me away?, ?Somebody? and the folk- rock sounding of ?With you, Lord? or ?I sing this song?, the album is a real treat from start to finish.
