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.

Gong
Angels Egg

In my head nothing musically relevant happened in the first decade of the 2000s. Others claim that 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!

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
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.

The Red Krayola
Parable Of Arable Land

Ye olde psych-rockers Red Crayola played the loosest, most free-form version of their genre possible, letting each of their instruments stray far from one another and allowing their rhythms to interlock only in crucial moments. 'Parable of Arable Land' was originally released in 1967 but is getting a reissue from Charly records, and offers up psych worship as tinged with an almost post-punk dedication to dejection and moodiness.

Ernie K-Doe
A Certain Girl / Here Come The Girls

Some Northern Soul goodness from Ernie K-Doe. ‘Here Come The Girls’ - most famous in recent years for becoming a top 5 smash for The Sugababes - is the cocksure strut you know and love. Written and produced by Allen Touissant, don’t you know. ‘A Certain Girl’ dates back to 1961, nine years before ‘... Girls’, and was recorded in the afterglow of K-Doe’s Billboard #1 ‘Mother-In-Law’. It’s a classic bit of soul that here comes remastered from the original tape.

13th Floor Elevators
Live Evolution Lost

Live Evolution Lost: The 13th Floor Elevators Live at the Houston Music Theatre is the first ever release of the complete performance of the band's legendary show from 18th February 1967. This is a 3LP coloured vinyl box set edition. The trailblazing 13th Floor Elevators released the first "psychedelic" rock album in America, transforming culture throughout the 1960s and beyond. Formed in late 1965 in a small town in Texas by Electric Jug playing Tommy Hall, guitarist & vocalist Roky Erickson, guitarist Stacy Sutherland they were joined by bass player Benny Thurman, and drummer John Ike Walton. A three album edition, on green, blue and red heavyweight vinyl, which for the first time features the whole of the Elevators' historic gig on 18th February 1967 at the Houston Music Theatre. It catches the band with its classic line-up before the release of 'Easter Everywhere' and is the only known complete recording of an Elevators' gig, and the latest to survive. Mastered by Sonic Boom and put together by band expert Paul Drummond, it includes one reel unissued for over forty-five years. Tracks: LP 1: ( I've Got ) Levitation/ Roller Coaster/ Fire Engine/ Reverberation ( Doubt )/ Don't Fall Down/ Tried To Hide/ Splash 1/ You're Gonna Miss Me/ Monkey Island LP 2: Kingdom Of Heaven/ She Lives ( In A Time Of Her Own )/ Jam Intro/ Jam 1 - Roll Over Blue Suede Blues Jam/ Jam 2 - Backwards Evolution Jam/ Jam 3 - Ed's Esoteric Jazz Jam LP 3: Jam 4 - ( It's All Over Now ) Baby Blue Jam/ Screen Print/ Jam 5 - She Lives Jam/ Jam 6 - Hamburgers & Acid

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!

Townes Van Zandt
Texas Rain

As the ‘90s began, a rejuvenated Townes Van Zandt began recording duets with artists that were admirers of the country singer/songwriter. Willie Nelson, Doug Sahm, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Jeff Walker and Freddie Fender were among those who contributed and gave some of Van Zandt’s most famous songs a new lease of life. Texas Rain was the result. Released on a limited run in 2001, Texas Rain has been fully remastered to audiophile standard, pressed onto vinyl and repackaged to include a 20 page colour booklet. First 1000 copies are pressed on clear vinyl.

Townes Van Zandt
Live At The Old Quarter

God of country, Townes Van Zandt, never enjoyed commercial success while he was alive, which to this day remains one of the greatest musical travesties of all time. His vast catalogue of songs include some of the finest work ever produced, by anyone ever. This brilliant live album includes some great songs - 'Pancho and Lefty', 'For the Sake of the Song', 'Waiting around to Die' and a whole lot more. Completely essential vinyl.

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.

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. Even at this earliest stage his songs are fully formed: this includes some of his career-long highlights. Blue vinyl reissue in a replica sleeve, with a 12-page booklet.

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. 
  • Vinyl LP (CHARLYL141)

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.
