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...view item »

Stars Of Liberty / Eye Q
Power To The People / I’m Not Selfish

Greasy Zimbabwean funk from Stars Of Liberty & Eye Q. Following the Now-Again 7" limited repress series comes Power To The People / I'm Not Selfish. These heavy afro-funk rarities tell the story of the public unrest happening in Zimbabwe in the 70's. Both tracks spoke out against the repressive regime in the funkies...view item »

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 ...view item »


The debut album from 1970s Zamrockers WITCH or We Intend To Cause Havoc!, arguably the masters of the Zambian rock movement that has been gathering new attention since Now-Again records have been steadily reissuing some of the genre’s classics. Introduction is just that, a good introduction to the Zamrock ...view item »


Amanaz were one of the premium exponents of Zambia's Zamrock music, and Africa is one of the premium examples of their sound. The fuzz guitars and the shuffling, driving drums back up a gnarled-up vocal style, as the group actively rage against colonialism’s legacy. Double LP reissue on Now-Again....view item »

Rikki Ililonga
Sunshine Love

Rikki Ililonga is generally credited for spawning the 1970s genre Zamrock (Western influenced African music inspired by the funk of James Brown and the guitar psych-outs of Jimi Hendrix).

The Heliocentrics
Quatermass Sessions: From The Deep

The Heliocentrics pull tracks from their collaboration with Gaslamp Killer (the HELIO X GLK EP) fully into the light, with a set of selections recorded in their old Quartermass Studios. This stuff kicks out real funky and real psychy, drawing the listener into grooving space journeys. Tasty stuff. LP re...view item »

Lightmen Plus One
Fancy Pants

This is the second LP from Texas native Bubbha Thomas and his Lightmen band, and it's a doozy. A symbiotic blend of politically fuelled, revolutionary social commentary and maverick underground jazz, this vinyl reissue is presented in both stereo and mono mixes, with a bonus download card featuring footage of li...view item »


A much required vinyl pressing for what the press release calls 'one of the great psychedelic rock albums of all time'. Kaleidoscope emerged out of the West Coast of America in the late '60s with a drenched reverby sound that must have had influence on the Doors and later era line ups of Love...view item »

German Oak
Down In The Bunker

Reissue of a notoriously misunderstood and misrepresented album and band. German Oak’s Down In The Bunker was literally recording in a bunker, and is a looming, dark, psychedelic prog/kraut rock album which got matched up to WWII imagery and references without the band’s input. Presented for the first time o...view item »

Karl Hector & The Malcouns
Unstraight Ahead

Karl Hector is the pseudonym of visionary German producer and musician JJ Whitefield. Whitfield is the man behind the funk revival groups The Whitefield Brothers and Poets Of Rhythm. On Unstraight Ahead, with his backing band The Malcouns, Hector takes ...view item »


Now-Again present a long-craved reissue of this obscure slice of Austrian psych from the early 70s. Paternoster have long been vaunted as a lost treasure from the history of prog, and their debut album is their crowning achievement. Equal parts epic organ playing and scuzzy guitars, this is a righteous trip with grit, groove and...view item »

World's Experience Orchestra
As Time Flows On

An underground gem from 1980 has been given the reissue treatment, yet still seems completely relevant now. It's a gorgeous mixture of Sanders-esque devotional jazz, Don Cherry's instrumental freedom, British pastoral psychedelic rock and a lyrical execution that's half crooner, half spiritual doctrine. Just lov...view item »

Lazy Bones

'Lazy Bones!!', the third record by Zambian garage rockers Witch, trawls through rollicking guitar riffs (with plenty of fuzz action), avid drum fills and sublime vocal harmonies, creating a sound that's joyous and communal whatever genre it ends up slinking into (be it their preference for funk or psych rock). It's being reissued by Now-Ag...view item »

Michael Cosmic & Phill Musra Group
Peace In The World / Creator Spaces

A vast dive into the vaults from No-Again unearths a high point in free improv and spiritual jazz. With significant political leanings and an clear influence from the almost divine grace of Sun Ra and Pharoah Sanders, it's a colourful and ever changing affair, completed with World's Experience Orchestra...view item »

Ex Anima

Rodinia continues JJ Whitefield's exploration of krautrock themes by pulling himself away from the lure of lengthy ambient vacuums, instead focusing on shorter songs a la Neu or Harmonia, so expect greater focus & condensed atmosphere this time around. With Now-Again curating and art by Jason Jagel (of DOOM cover fame),...view item »

Kourosh Yaghmaei
Back From The Brink

Back from the Brink is a wonderfully compiled collection from the reissue masters, Now-Again, of pre-revolution psychedelic rock from Iran: 1972 - 1979 by Kourosh Yaghmaei. Having been censored by the fundamental Iranian government for his “western” psychedelic inspired rock music, Yaghmaei’s m...view item »

Function Underground: The Black & Brown American Rock Sound 1969-1974

Function Underground: The Black & Brown AMerican Rock Sound does excellent and necessary work in bringing to greater prominence some of the amazing non-white rock and roll music made in America between 1969 and 1974.

Welcome To Zamrock! Vol. 1: How Zambia’s Liberation Led To A Rock Revolution 1972-77

Forge Your Own Chains

What with the Psych Funk double LP coming out recently you may feel that your psychedelic funk and soul urges have been saciated. But think again fools! Now Again have gone one step further and released 'Forge Your Own Chains' which is a double LP of heavy psychedelic ballads and dirges 1968-1974. Make of that what you will but from what I've heard...view item »

The Mark III
Marvin Whoremonger

Marvin Whoremonger is a slightly odd album, put together by a ragtag combo of hustlers, teenagers and session musicians (it says here: the full story is detailed in the enclosed booklet). As The Mark III, the gang managed to create an excellent funk record full of synths and ...view item »

Chrissy Zebby Tembo & The Ngozi Family Band
I’m Not Made Of Iron

A 7” vinyl from Now Again Records, arguably one of the most passionate and knowledgeable re-issuers in the business, here we have two from Chrissy Zebby Tembo & The Ngozi Family Band. The A-side has never been released previously whilst the B-side is a great slice of African Zamrock with a deep guitar riff and great ly...view item »

Lukombo Vibes

Never forget the sound of Zamrock, Zambia’s 1970’s response to the rock’n’prog boom going on in the Anglocentric world. Bands like Witch took those styles and filtered them through immense funk and Afro rhythms for something particularly special. Lukombo Vi...view item »

Here’s a premium selection of the rock-derived music made in the aftermath of Nigeria’s civil war. Wake Up You Vol. 1 tracks the years 1972-1977, showcasing excellent bands like The Magnificent Zenians and Wrinkar Experience...view item »

Black Power

Black Power by Peace was released in the mid 1970’s, and it has taken as long as this for it to see an official reissue. And yet this is one of the premium albums of the whole Zambian Zamrock scene, a groovy and soulful thing. It is also the only album that ...view item »

Wake Up You! Vol. 2 - The Rise & Fall of Nigerian Rock Music (1972-1977)

Wake Up You! Vol. 2 - The Rise & Fall Of Nigerian Rock Music (1972 - 1977) is a compilation that does 2 things.

Re...view item »

Karl Hector & The Malcouns
Ka Rica-Tar

Karl Hector and his travelling band The Malcouns enjoy assimilating musical forms from around the world into their own special mix. Ka Rica-Tar has very strong North African, Middle Eastern and Western elements, blending together into a pleasingly rhythmic vibe. Screen-printed sleeves, edition of 1000 c...view item »

Karl Hector & The Malcouns

Got a tasty 12" here of international psych-funk fusion from Karl Hector & the Malcouns, a vibrant cultural fusion from band leader Jay Whitefield and his unlikely troupe of funsters. It's a thoroughly enjoyable listen, deftly mixing Afro rhythms and lively almost library-esque analogue funk, complete with everything from scraping fiddles ...view item »

Drumside / Dreamside

Rodinia have put together a wonderful rhythm-fest here for this LP. The two members started off with a jam on a stack of synth equipment, and later on added drums and other instruments. It feels like every aspect of the sound-field is in some way rhythmic, yet also a little ambient in texture. Drumside / Dreamside is release...view item »

4th Coming
Strange Things: The Complete Works 1970 - 1974

4th Coming were an unlikely and eccentric union of musical freaks and oddballs that included John Greek, who lent his psych-rock sensibilities to their soul and funk sound, Hank Porter, Jechonias ‘Jack’ Williams, who wrote the songs together and members of 10...view item »

So Hard To Find (Kenny Dope Remix)

Oh yeeaaaaahhhhh! This is some excellent 1980 era Miami Disco, produced by Pazazz back in the day, but only ever released as a very slenderly-editioned promo. Now however, Now-Again have enlisted the talents of Kenny Dope to make re-work the originals into proper 12” mixes, and pressed them up. A good time...view item »

Fabiano Do Nascimento
Danca Dos Tempos

‘Danca Dos Tempos’ is a live studio album, recorded straight to analog tape with no overdubs or unnecessary production and a minimal amount of economical mastering which perfectly captures the subtleties of this unique performance from the Afro/Brazilian folkloric spiritual voyager that is Fabiano Do Nascimento....view item »

Song Of A Gypsy (Deluxe Edition)

Now Again do the business once more. Egon truly is a servant to obscure music, his label has a long and noble history of presenting beautifully realised reissues of long forgotten music, however what really sets them apart is the manner in which they achieve this. This isn't a quick buck exercise, real detective w...view item »

Enjoy The Experience : Homemade Records 1958-1992

This lovingly and extensively compiled celebration of American private press music is presented here in different formats.

Richard Marks / Buddy Cantrell
I’m The Man For You

Deep in the gut-bucket with another Now-Again reissue in their 7" series. Richard Marks & Buddy Cantrell are getting the treatment this time, with the two navel jigglers I'm The Man For You & You Ain't No Good. Originally released at the beginning of the 70's, both jams have the di...view item »

The Split Decision Band
Watching Out (Original Version)

100% disco NRG from The Split Decision Band. Egon's Now-Again label have done it once again, reissuing forgotten rarities and giving Watching Out (Original Version) the care an attention it deserves.

Stephen David Heitkotter
Black Orckid

Pure weed from Californian fuzz lord Stephen David Heitkotter. Black Orckid is a remastered and repressed version of Heitkotter's home demos from 1971.

The Heliocentrics
Sirius B

London's progressive funksters Heliocentrics are back in action this week with this latest 12" EP, which features guest vocals from rapper Vast Aire on lead track 'Sirius B', a slow-burner with a slightly Roni Size-ish feel with its aggressive vocal, teasing beat and cheeky double...view item »

Heliocentrics & Melvin Van Peebles
The Last Transmission

Hot on the heels of their joyous collaborative 2LP with Afrobeat trailblazer Orlando Julius, London's leftfield funk heroes Heliocentrics are at it again, this time on an LP with Melvin Van Peebles, a filmmaker, musician and author best known for his Brer Soul trilogy of albums in the '70s and for writing, producing, scoring, directing and starr...view item »

In The Past

Now-Again continue to tell the story of Witch and their garage rock/funk hybrid by reissuing 'In The Past', a record initially released back in 1974. Witch -- also known as We Intend To Cause Havoc - fused genres gleefully into a sound unprecedented within the Zambian scene beforehand. 'In The Past' is a Zamrock cornerstone....view item »

Karl Hector & The Malcouns
Sahara Swing

'Sahara Swing' offers up funk that's informed by African sounds, with a band called the Malcouns led by the ex-Funk Pilots bandleader Karl Hector. 'Sahara Swing' focuses on anachronistic sounds that owe as much to Western soul as they do the African rhythms of Fela Kuti himself. 'Sahara Swing' is Hector's first full-length, f...view item »

True Soul : Deep Sounds From The Left Of Stax Volume 2

True Soul: Deep Sounds from the Left of Stax, a collection of rare and unreleased funk and soul music from the fabled Arkansas indie. 60’s and 70’s Soul, Funk, Disco, Party-Rap and Boogie from Arkansas’s Legendary Independent Label – the second installment presented as a CD/DVD. 18 Rare and Unreleased 60s & 70...view item »

Re-issue of a classic 12" on Now-Again records, featuring the talents of US rappers Edan and Mr. Lif. alongside the usual funk-soul of the Whitefield siblings. ...view item »

Stephan David Heitkotter
Black Orckid

A record that carries an immense amount of cultural capital for a certain breed of psychedelic rock-focused record collectors, now reissued in deluxe style by Now-Again. The first time around there were only twenty-five copies, so thank goodness for reissues eh? Lots of extra material (demos, photos) added to this outsider classic....view item »

Rikki Ililonga

Rikki Ililonga is generally credited for spawning the 1970s genre Zamrock (Western influenced African music inspired by the funk of James Brown and the guitar psych-outs of Jimi Hendrix). Having played with almost every band in Zambia and toured Africa extensively, Ililonga switches effortlessly on this record from electric, aco...view item »

Rikki Ililonga & Musi-O-Tunya

Movin' On / Kuomboka

If you've been following them on their journey into the wonderful world of reissue campaigns, you'll by now recognise Witch as the most influential Zamrock band of all time. Movin' On / Kuomboka is a double disc compilation that shows off the time when Witch decided they loved disco -- pretty good time to be a...view item »

J Rocc
J. Rocc Enjoyed The Experience

J Rocc should be way higher profile than he is. One of the dj's pretty central to Stones Throw it is perhaps his lack of material under his own name that holds him back, not helped by the limited nature of that which is released. His album on Stones Throw was elusive as hell, I'd ha...view item »

The Heliocentrics
Quatermass Sessions 1

Fans of Malcolm Catto should know what to expect here, this isn't a straight up LP of two and a half minute funk tracks. With Catto & The Heliocentrics you get an altogether more cosmic vibe. Heavy drums, psychedelic riffs, deepness, some tracks long and winding, so...view item »

The Gaslamp Killer
Helio X Glk

Oh, nice! I thought this was just a regular 12” but upon opening the sleeve I’ve discovered there’s a whole album’s worth of material here. As you may have deduced from the title, this LP consists of GLK reworking esoteric London post-funksters The Heliocentrics, apt since in the &lsquo...view item »

Apple & The Three Oranges
Free And Easy

Whilst I don't think this is the strongest reissue Now Again have put out, that is a bit like complaining that your gold ingot isn't quite as shiny as the others. There are some quality tunes on here, Free and Easy and Gotta Stand For Something would stand up against the likes of ...view item »

The Heliocentrics
13 Degrees Of Reality

The Heliocentrics are a hard band to pin down, mixing all sorts of aspects of spiritual jazz, Afro-jazz, funk, krautrock and psychedelia into a restlessly inventive collection of free flowing grooves and tasty wah-guitar licks like a less prog-influenced Elephant9 or a swirl...view item »

P.E. Hewitt Jazz Ensemble
Winter Winds

A beautiful album, incorporating soul jazz, free jazz and vocal jazz. Winter Winds is as good a place to start as any with PE Hewitt, though the work is so solid you could pick Jawbones or Since Washington. This is an album of lovely private press music, kicking off with 'I'm Wondering Why' and moving onto 'More T...view item »

Karl Hector & The Malcouns
Ngunga Yeti Fofa

For all intents and purposes, Karl Hector might as well be another nom-de-plume of Jay Whitefield (producer and guitarist for the Poets of Rhythm and the Whitefield Brothers) who, along with Thomas Myland and Zdenko Curlija, founded Karl Hector and The Malcouns in the early 2000s. Alongside Bo Baral, other members of the Poets of Rhyt...view item »

Apple And The Three Oranges
Free And Easy : The Complete Works 1970-1975

A double lp from the passionate people at Now-Again Records, the music of Edward "Apple" Nelson had been overlooked for 40 years and this record gives the now 70 year old Nelson a little of the recognition he truly deserves. A funk album that just oozes rhythm, emotion and swings along to Nelson's jumpy New Orleans drums, the songs would easily ...view item »

Soul 7

This is a treat from Now Again, as ever totally on point with their repackaging of lost treasures. What more do you need to know than you are getting 7 (seven as the old BBC didiprinter may have confirmed) 7 inches of funky soulful grooves in a lovely box that will look great on your shelf. Featured acts...view item »

Whitefield Brothers
Savannahstan / Serengeti

I'm a big fan of 2010's Earthology 2LP so I wasn't surprised when Phil chucked this one my way for review. Turns out Now-Again have switched offices and have unearthed a few copies of this little beauty, originally given away for free with initial copies of 'Earthology'. This obviously be...view item »

Soul Cal: Funky Disco And Modern Soul 1971-1982

Wow, wow, wow. This is an incredible, beautiful package of funky disco and modern soul, just as it states on the label. Jam packed like the best dancefloors with incredible tracks that will blow your mind. Luther Davis with You Can Be A Star is a great start, a real soul groover, a classic on the soul scene, but one of those tracks that just mak...view item »

The Heliocentrics
Dance Of The Dogons (Part Two) / Noise

More lost Now-Again booty, this time from The Heliocentrics.  This is another limited Fan-Club release originally intented to accompany the release of 2007's 'Out There' LP. Didn't get this one but again, this will either be off-cuts or an accompanying selection taken from the 'Out T...view item »

Gole Yakh / Del Dareh Pir Misheh

Fill that annoying gap in your collection where funky Iranian Psychedelic rock should be. Kourosh was an Iranian rock musician who found himself banned for 17 years from 1979, pretty much doing for his career, however he has been 'rediscovered' of late via crate diggers such as Egon, the ...view item »

Leila / Paiz

What do you mean you haven't got any funky Iranian Psychedelic rock in your collection? Well now is your chance to correct that. The fact that this guy has been comped by the likes of Egon on Now Again's excellent Forge Your Own Chains album, as well as ...view item »

Hajme Khali / Akhm Nakon

We got three singles in today (there's one more to come) by Iranian psych rock legend Kourosh. Which have been lovingly supplied by Now Again in reproductions of the original sleeves. There's lots of curly writing and not much English on there! The image on the cover is brilliant  as well...view item »

Grimm Reality

Grimm Reality takes Dimlite even further out into 'left field', with the grit of "You Very Rich Believer" suddenly turning into a psychedelic pop song. The pop feel returns on "XY," but "Pour Some Blood, We Got This" and "Blur, Blur, Blur, Blur" drift into their own bizarre realms. "Healing a Random Tyrant" has more focus, evoking a post-rock fe...view item »

Chistophe Lemaire Presents Where Are You From?

Interesting collection, basically its a dig through Now Again records archives picking out tracks from the more afrocentric and psychedelic corners of theur vaults, which is no bad thing even though the collection suffers slightly from being a little singular in its sound. One or two curve balls may have given the...view item »

Those Shocking Shaking Days

I don't know how they do it but Now-Again records just finds THE BEST stuff! The best music from Africa, Iran, Turkey and now Indonesia, they find it all, but only if it's good. Hidden by political censorship, the 70s music scene in Indonesian was bubbling with funky psychedelic goodness and this selection reall...view item »

Seu Jorge and Almaz
Seu Jorge and Almaz

A lovely album by Seu Jorge this, sunshine lilting arrangements of well know songs, pity its nearly winter, but you can't have everything can you? For me this is largely about the two singles released from the album, Everybody Loves the Sunshine and The Model. Now Kraftwerk don't al...view item »

Prismic Tops

Dimlite's Prismic Tops goes off in even stranger directions, from the xylophone and filtered Arabic horns of Kalimba Deathswamp/Kurt Feelingx. The weirdness is in full effect, and even with Elan Tamara lending her vocals to "On the Same Picture," the instrumentals go crazy right beneath her. The jazz inflections of his earlier works give way to ...view item »
