13th Floor Elevators
The Psychedelic Sounds Of

Oooh: 'tis a gatefold I see before me? 'Tis, of those lads 13th Floor Elevators, who made the electric jug what it is today -- or not, but it certainly sounds fantastic on the LP, which comes with the plain old record (in heavyweight vinyl, so not that plain) and the mono version, with the tracklist in an order that the band apparently intended. So if you want two LPs of the same classic album in one sleeve, come hither.

Gong
Camembert Electrique

Camembert Electrique was the first album by Daevid Allen’s legendary experimental psych-rock band Gong. It was originally released in France in 1971. It didn’t get a UK release until 1974 when the track listing, song titles and timings were all printed wrongly. This reissue, along with giving you the chance to replace a knackered copy, puts those wrongs right. On Charly.

Gong
Angels Egg

Gong’s Angel’s Egg, the second part in their Radio Gnome Invisible series, was a groundbreaking development. The album is jam-packed with weirdly jazzy progressive rock compositions that are truly all over the place, driven by manic horns and reeds, like a succession to Estradasphere’s Buck Fever. Great stuff if you're into it, and finally back out on vinyl!

Gong
Flying Teapot

If you looked at this album and though "this has got to be prog", you're right. I checked. Flying Teapot (named for a Bertrand Russell thought experiment because of course) is Gong's third album and the first in their classic trilogy (because of course) of albums released between 1973 and 1974. If you like your rock music gleefully cosmic and elatingly psychedelic, take a flight.

Johnny Cash
Original Sun Sound Of Johnny Cash

This would be the last Sun recording for the legendary country singer Johnny Cash, remastered here from the original tapes. Cash remains an extraordinary figure in the history of music, a highly gifted storyteller and inimitable vocal presence. This 7th record for Sun is as essential as anything of this era, reissued on a run of 1000 copies on heavyweight magenta coloured vinyl.

Small Faces
Ogdens' Nutgone Flake

Here's a re-issue of the Small Faces classic psych epic Ogden's Nut Gone Flake - a kind of mixture of proto heavy rock and cockney knees up psych pop all narrated by that man who talks gibberish (Stanley Unwin not Steven Morrissey). A completely unique album now re-issued on 180g vinyl using a remaster from 2012.

Johnny Cash
Greatest Hits - The Sun Records Years

This is not a Best of Johnny Cash album. If you’re looking for one, look elsewhere because here we only have the Greatest Hits. Only the greatest from the great man himself and all from his great period at Sun Records between 1955 and 1961. Released to mark the 60th anniversary of Cash’s first LP from 1957, the roll call of singles remastered from their original tapes on this LP is a delight; “I Walk The Line”, “Cry! Cry! Cry!”, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ballad Of A Teenage Queen”, but to name of few. The 180g vinyl comes with liner notes by the president of Sun Records. A truly great celebration!

Time Zone feat. Afrika Bambaataa & John Lydon
World Destruction - The Complete Celluloid Mixes

Back way before he became a Brexit loving bore, John Lydon stretched himself out in many inspired directions. One was this groundbreaking collaboration with Afrika Bambaataa which seemed to signal that rap and rock could... you know... mix. It's tremendous and here is presented with all of Bill Laswell's rare mixes present and correct.

Townes Van Zandt
For The Sake Of The Song

For The Sake Of The Song was the debut album from troubled but brilliant singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Like a lot of records of the era it was somewhat overproduced as strings and other ephemera were slapped on top of his heartfelt songs. Van Zandt would later re-record most of these songs in more stripped down fashion but it is still a fascinating artefact of where it all started.

94 East feat. Prince
94 East feat. Prince

Hold the bloody phone…. The earliest recordings of Prince, as he emerged with 94 East. Obviously, he plays as many instruments as you can name, THIS is where it all began, and now remastered and put on glorious triple LP or coloured (purple, naturally) vinyl. Box set includes interview with 94 East founder and Prince discoverer Pepé Willie.

94 East feat. Prince
Just Another Sucker

And.. a star is born. Welcome, Prince. 94 East was the start of Prince’s inimitable career path, with Pepe Willie recognising his ridiculous amount of talent from the get go he shoved him straight to the front of his band and the story starts there. This collection of tracks from 1975-1979 is pure fire funk, and has the formerly artist formerly known as Prince all over it.

Townes Van Zandt
Flyin' Shoes

Townes Van Zandt has always been deeply respected by those in the know about American songwriters, and Flyin’ Shoes, his debut album from way back in 1978, makes clear why.

Funkadelic
The Electric Spanking Of War Babies

Originally released in 1981, 'The Electric Spanking Of War Babies' was one Funkadelic's most uncompromising and controversial records. The title is a reference to the Vietnam War, U.S imperialism and the Baby Boomer generation. The reissue replicates the intended artwork which was originally censored by Warner Brothers.

Funkadelic
One Nation Under A Groove

Originally issued in 1978 'One Nation Under a Groove' is a reissue of one of the defining albums of the funk movement. Put together by mothership mastermind George Clinton, Funkadelic absorbed all the best elements of seventies psychedelia, rock and funk spawning a P-Funk empire of cartoon-inspired imagery, futuristic space travel and sonic adventure.

13th Floor Elevators
Easter Everywhere

The second album from Roky Erickson and co. saw their songs get longer and more expansive. Stripping away a lot of the garage rock influence and adding plenty of 60s folk rock sounds, the sound is more psychedelic, hypnotic and woozier. It remains hugely influential, with Primal Scream covering the opener 'Slip Inside The House' and the Levitation festival in Texas being named after it. Long live the 13th Floor Elevators!
