David Axelrod
Song Of Innocence

Long awaited reissue here from David Axelrod, who made a touching tribute to poet William Blake in Song of Innocence. Deceptive in its welcoming, cozy melodic furniture, it becomes an odd, illusory piece of work, infused with unexpected chords, jazzy timbres and baroque displacements. Axelrod's songs never end up the same ones you stepped into; this is a classic of both another time and place.

David Axelrod
Seriously Deep

Seriously Deep was the only album David Axelrod recorded for Polydor in the 1970s. You may be less familiar with this than his other classics such as Songs Of Innocence, Songs of Experience and Earth Rot. However, this Jazz-rock fusion masterpiece has been plundered for samples just as often as the rest by the likes of Mobb Deep, Black Eyed Peas and Beanie Sigel.

David Axelrod
Songs Of Experience

Wait! Come back! This isn't a reissue of that U2 album, I promise! This is David Axelrod's second album first release in 1969, and the sequel to Songs of Innocence. Like his first album, this is a lushly orchestrated interpretations of the poetry of one William Blake. As the name might suggest, this time Axelrod was concerned with the darker aspects of life.

Earth Rot Instrumentals

The plush compositional style that the late David Axelrod laid down in the 1960’s still exerts great influence on popular music. His way with orchestral arrangements - post-Library, proto-Lynchian - is instantly recognisable when it crops up in the work of everyone from Adrian Younge to Tyler, The Creator. It makes sense, then, that someone thought to strip out all the vocals and just focus on Axelrod’s instrumentals. 1970’s Earth Rot, a LP in which Axelrod started to explore jazz further than on his previous records, is the lucky album this time around.

Pride
Pride

Highly influential recorder, producer and composer David Axelrod teamed up with offspring Michael for this rather obscure project. Nooney Rickett’s mournful voice dances over Axelrod & Son Ltd.’s arrangements of faintly Latin-tinged, 1970s West-coast psych; all elegantly sun-baked, throat-parched and artfully dreary.

David Axelrod
Earth Rot

Earth Rot was the third album by composer David Axelrod. It was also the final part of his Capitol trilogy which included Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience. It was originally released in 1970 and bemoans the state of the environment in L.A. at the time. This reissue is a 2LP version which adds an instrumental version of the original choral LP, a request Axelrod made before his death in 2017. Limited edition 2LP, includes 28 page booklet on Now-Again.
