Laut Aussage von LION brauchte es "acht Jahre bis die
800er Lp Auflage von ODYSSEY verkauft worden war". Da
wundert es ein unbedarftes Gemüt wie mich schon, dass
sich das Label nun an "TIN HOUSE" wagt, einen Klassiker,
der bis zum Überschwall bereits gebootet wurde und nach
wie vor günstigst als Cd/Lp zu erwerben ist, z.B. O-MUSIC.
Dafür werden die Löwen wieder acht Jahre brauchen.
Ähnliches gilt für eines ihrer anderen Zukunft Projekte,
nämlich IL BALLETTO Di BRONZO  "SIRIO 2222".
Dabei warten wahrlich noch viele andere Meilensteine auf
ihr erneutes Reissue, z.B. THE CONQUEROO  "FROM THE

oder JARVO RUNGA  "DEMO -

Neu auf ESOTERIC:
THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN  STRANGELANDS
PRESSETEXT
NEW REMASTERED EDITION OF THE “LOST” SECOND ALBUM BY THE CRAZY WORLD
OF ARTHUR BROWN . INCLUDES EIGHT BONUS TRACKS FROM THE RUSTIC HINGE “REPLICAS” SESSIONS PLUS NEW ARTWORK AND ESSAY . BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release the classic “lost” album by The Crazy
World of Arthur Brown, “Strangelands”. Recorded in the Autumn of 1969, the
sessions were an attempt to resurrect the Crazy World by Arthur Brown and
featured some classic material. Divided into four sub-headings, (“The Country”,
“The City”, The Cosmos” and “The Afterlife”), “Strangelands” was certainly
 ahead of its time but failed to gain a full release for nearly two decades. In
hindsight, the material can be seen as the blueprint for Arthur’s next project,
the innovative Kingdom Come. This Esoteric Recordings reissue also adds the
legendary “Replicas” sessions by RUSTIC HINGE. Featuring Crazy World drummer Drachan Theaker and guitarist Andy Rickell, the project was originally intended
to feature Arthur Brown as vocalist and also featured the legendary HIGH TIDE guesting on one track.
With Brown leaving
the group to form the first incarnation of Kingdom Come,
Rustic Hinge would eventually release material on John Peel’s
Dandelion label, whilst the “Replicas” sessions would
 remain unreleased for a further 20 years.
This Esoteric reissue has been newly re-mastered and includes a new essay.

BOOK A TRIP 2
PRESSE TEXT:
Once more, NOW SOUNDS raids the Capitol Records vaults in Hollywood for late-’60s Psychedelic Pop/Soft Pop obscurities and unearths a treasure trove of first-time-on-CD gems.
Productions by the likes of MICHAEL LLOYD collide with arrangements by MORT
GARSON and GENE PAGE and compositions by HARRY NILSSON and KIM FOWLEY, and performances by many legendary Wrecking Crew members, proving why Capitol
Records was the undisputed leader of pop during this pivotal era.
ALL original Capitol singles, circa 1966–1969, are sourced from ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES. Some are presented here in STEREO for the first time ever! Most tracks are
FIRST TIME ON CD!
The 24-page, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive track-by-track
liner notes that feature the participation of many original band members, arrangers,
and producers
Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES! Produced and compiled by STEVE STANLEY

69WATT WATT1
The debut album from Saint-Petersburg, Russia based power-trio The Flash Fever shows a bright
palette of influences and genres. Although in general it is 70s inspired fuzzy psychedelic rock one can find something from stoner, progressive rock, funk and even hip-hop there. Fast loud and fuzzy riffs stand nearby tuneful choruses which are flavored with bluesy solos. Two singers make the sound differs from track to track and even through one song. All that components are mixed in turmoil of madness and heavy vibes.

PAUL ROLAND

Bates Motel
LP
69WATT WATT2

Fancy a detour off the musical highway this Autumn? Cult English baroque rocker
Paul Roland (who was once
described as 'the male Kate Bush' by label mate Robyn Hitchcock) has left the mock gothic grandeur of his past albums such as 'Danse Macabre', the Edwardian proto-steampunk offerings of 'A Cabinet of Curiosities'
and the dark woods of folk-themed 'Grimm' to plug his electric guitar in and thrash to death such titles as'I Was A Teenage Zombie', 'Tortured By The Daughter of Fu Manchu', 'How I Escaped From Devil's Island' and the title track ‘Bates Motel’. Someone has evidently been listening to The Cramps and Johnny Cash!
"In the late 1980s I interviewed several members of the Velvet Underground for a national English newspaper and at the end of the interviews I asked Nico, Sterling Morrison and Maureen Tucker if they would be interested
 in recording with me and they seemed genuinely enthusiastic. So I wrote some songs for them and sent the
tapes over to the states, but there were technical problems that couldn't be resolved due to the incompatibility
of the tape formats at that time. There was no internet then so sub-mixes on metal spools had to be shipped
over for them to add their parts and these weren't compatible with the American studio that Sterling was using
at the time. So the songs were shelved, until now. I had spoken to Sterling several times on the phone and he had written back saying that he was keen to record and he liked the songs, particularly the structures, I remember, but I didn't pursue it,
thinking that we had all the time in the world to get
together. Then sadly he died and soon after so did
Nico. Then my own music went off in a more psych-folk direction and I forgot all about the PR/VU project.
But recently after making a number of intimate acoustic albums I was itching to rock again and I thought it was time to dust
off the songs I had
written for them and complete those which I hadn't finished. 'Bates Motel' is not Paul Roland imitating the Velvet Underground - that would be
pointless - it is the album that I would have made with Mo, Sterling and Nico had I been a bit more aggressively ambitious and made sure the opportunity wasn't lost."
For those who might find the pace rather bracing, there are also a couple of spaced-out psych tracks (including a paean to the dark Indian goddess Kali) and a creepy tale or two with a suitably atmospheric setting - one inspired by a ghost story written by England's master of the macabre M.R.
James ('The Wailing Well'). The lighter side of Roland's macabre humour is embodied in a couple of classic Sixties psych-punk tracks with a twist (‘Tortured By The Daughter of Fu Manchu’ and 'Crazy' which we think could have been written for Green Day), plus a sly pastiche of self-righteous evangelical preachers on the gospel tinged 'Promised Land' and a typical Roland offbeat Arabian adventure ‘Khatmandu’ featuring Curly, Moe and Stagger Lee ("and me with a half-assed plan to find the lost city of Genghis Khan").
New remixed sound and alternative cover artwork to the Sireena 2013 CD edition.
Limited to 200 black and 100 coloured copies.
Factory sealed album.

ELMER GANTRY'S VELVET OPERA
(Label: CHERRY RED)  CD
PRESSETEXT (ENTNOMMEN VON SPIN CDS)
On the face of it, Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera should have been a shoo-in for success. A popular,
dynamic live act who were equally at home in the studio, their early recordings were bursting
with wit, intelligence, melody, style and, perhaps more than anything else, a sense of fun.
The sole album to be made by the original line-up, Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera was one of the
most original and consistently entertaining albums to emerge from the British psychedelic scene.
The band also cut a couple of hugely commercial singles – and
yet, somehow, the glittering prizes
eluded them (although Elmer did subsequently score a hit as the lead singer on Stretch’s ‘Why Did
You Do It’, while rhythm section Richard Hudson and John Ford would later flourish in the Strawbs
before branching out on their own) .
This definitive release of that self-titled 1968 album adds their three contemporaneous singles
(including the minor hit ‘Flames’, an EGVO song that the embryonic Led Zeppelin included in their live set),
various studio outtakes (such as their title song to the little-known 1967 Swinging London horror movie
short Talk Of The Devil) as well as hitherto-unreleased early demo versions of ‘Flames’ and ‘Salisbury Plain’.

THE STEPPES    GREEN VELVET ELECTRIC
A COMPENDIUM 1983 - 1997    (Label: CHERRY RED)
PRESSETEXT (ENTNOMMEN VON SPIN CDS)    CD
Born amidst the hype of the ‘Paisley Underground’ in LA in the early 1980s the
Steppes were always the real deal, yet received less attention than lesser
contemporaries such as The Rain Parade and Long Ryders. In the main a
vehicle for the songs of the Irish American Fallon brothers, the Steppes
earliest recordings received praise in Melody Maker who made comparisons
with The Beatles and The
Jam. By 1986 the band had achieved its classic line
up; John and Dave Fallon were augmented by the  John Cippolina meets
Jimmy Page’ guitar work of Tim Gilman and ‘John Densmore vibed’ drumming
of Jim Bailey.
In 1986 this truly psychedelic quartet unleashed the timeless ‘Drop of The
Creature’ an album described by The Times in 1997 as “one of the greatest
debuts ever”. An innovative mixture of trippy, fluid, west-coast acid rock, folky-
Celtic romanticism and sharply observant pop-psychedelia, ‘Drop’ set
a template that the band improved upon right up until their untimely demise in
the midst of the acid house explosion - when playing a guitar was momentarily
deemed unhip by the fickle masters of cool.
The Steppes sound is as catchy as it is hallucinogenic and between 1983 and 1997 they recorded anastonishing body of
work including the albums ‘Drop of The Creature’ ‘Stewdio’ ‘Enquire Within’‘ Harps and Hammers’ and ‘Gods Men and
Ghosts’.
The best of this catalogue can be found on this two disc set. Both ahead of their time and outside of it
The Steppes legacy is now in focus revealing just what an important band they really were.
NME “A lost talent that should be discovered as soon as possible”
The Times “Unsung Britpop forebears stifled in their day by Acid House and Transatlantic Air Fares”
Shindig “This is a band that should have achieved so much more and been massive. A very needed
anthology”
Q Magazine “A Strange but rather fascinating brew”

GRAZIA  GRAZIA!
PRESSETEXT VON FORTUNA RECORDS / VERTRIEB LIGHT IN THE ATTIC RECORDS:

Jaffa in the late sixties and early seventies had an exciting and exotic sound to offer, where folk musicians
performed live at its taverns seven nights a week. It was far from the mainstream hit- parade of swinging 
Tel-Aviv but close enough geographically to attract listeners from across the Tel-Aviv-Jaffa metropolis. The 
scene got bigger and wilder, as it embraced the Middle Eastern celebration style known as “Hafla”, involving 
heavy drinking, local food and music of course
Standing at the center of old Jaffa and it’s vibrant music scene was the record store and label, Koliphone 
Records. Owned by the Azoulay brothers, Koliphone tirelessly recorded these artists and sold their records to 
the growing masses. At first they released mostly Greek and Turkish music, shortly followed by Yemenite, 
Moroccan and Hebrew records, showcasing the cultural melting pot of this ancient part town.
The biggest and most influential artist of the time was Aris San. A singer and guitar virtuoso, San created the 
Israeli-Greek style and introduced the drums-bass-guitar rock combo to folk audiences. His fans thought they 
were listening to traditional bouzouki melodies, but in fact San’s music was a lot heavier, strongly influenced 
by American surf, verging on the psychedelic San’s huge popularity attracted many other artists to record the
new style he had pioneered. Artists such as Trifonas, Levitros, Nino Nikolaidis and many more began to appear 
on Jaffa’s record stands. Among them was a young girl who sang in Turkish. Her name was Grazia Peretz.
Grazia was a wonder kid in the early seventies. She started singing at the age of nine, performing at Turkish weddings and Mediterranean nightclubs, 
sharing a stage with local legends such as Aris San and Trifonas. Soon enough, she became an in demand act for events up and down the country, 
eventually landing herself a weekly TV spot on the Channel 1 music segment.
For her 16th birthday, her father sent her to record a full length “Hafla” style album at the Koliphone studios. Marko Bachar, who was the label’s in-
house producer, arranger and keyboard player, was in charge of the project. Bachar had just sold his organ and bought a monophonic Moog synthesizer.
The heavy and unique sound of his synth is heard well throughout the album, encouraged by Grazia herself, who wanted to break free from the 
conformities of Greek and Turkish folk music and introduce the early sounds of disco she and her peers were getting into.
When the album finally hit the shops it sold… nothing. Hard funk drums, pounding bass coupled with synth blips and psychedelic Turkish guitars – 
well… it was all a bit too much for the unsuspecting folk audience. Grazia never made another album for Koliphone.
At the age of 18, disheartened by the music industry and the undue touring environment she had to endure at such an early age, she stopped singing 
and never returned to the studio or the stage.
All she left us was this amazing gem, which became one of the most sought after Israeli records of all time.

V.A. - SAZ BEAT  Turkis Rock, Funk and Psychedelic Music of the 1960s and 1970s
PRESSETEXT
From the curator of Bosporus Bridges Vol. 2, now comes the compilation Saz Beat
on Corvo Records' sublabel Global Pop First Wave.

This new selection of tracks explores the sounds of Turkey from when the country
was hit by the first wave of global pop in the 1960s. Unlike elsewhere, Anglo-American
pop did not lead to a copy culture, but to an extraordinary blend of an electrified Western
style with Turkish elements in composition, language, and instrumentation.

The compilation presents a wide mix of music for dancing and listening, ranging from hard
rock to soft folk and from disco funk to muezzin psychedelic. It contains two incredible tunes
by Grazia, "the only synth-driven, Israeli-Turkish, break-heavy, psychedelic-disco-funk record
by a child nightclub singer" (Andy Votel). Also featured are American-Turkish beat rock by
Devil's Anvil, otherworldly sounds by Gülsüm Kamu and Yabancilar, hiphop-sample-friendly
beats by Özdemir Erdogan and Zafer Dilek, and heavy groove folk by Meral Atakök and Zerrin Zeren.

All tracks have been carefully restored and completely remastered for full sonic impact at
Calyx Mastering, Berlin.

Für immer im Gedächtnis haften  bleibt jedem Grusel Freak der Auftritt
von DAVID HESS als Psychopath nahe beim LETZTEN HAUS LINKS.
Dabei war er in erster Linie weniger ein Schauspieler sondern 
begnadeter Musiker und hatte auch flugs den SOUNDTRACK zu WES
CRAVENS
Underground Klassiker beigemetzelt.
Als verschiedene Ausfertigung (Lp, Cd, Cassette) von ONE WAY STATIC
RECORDS
 (Vertrieb: LIGHT IN THE ATTIC).

Manchmal gelingt es mir nicht,
nen brauchbaren Beitrag herbei
zu hexen -  dafür möchte ich mich beim
Barte der fünfpilzigen Flederfunzel somit
entbußigen.

Müde Knochen
Es dürfte kaum einen Beller wert sein - beim Lp Reissue
von DUFFY  "JUST IN CASE YOU'RE INTERESTED" handelt
es sich um ein Counterfeit, denn das Label MABEL RECORDS
hat eigentlich seine Hütte vor längerem zugekettet -man
könnte sich indes auch irren, wuff.

Laut der KRAUTROCK Seite eine "(fast) vergessene Perle" -
siehe etwas weiter unten.

Des weiteren macht man sich im MUSIKZIRKUS seine
Gedanken.

Fantastico - erneut ein Lexikon , darin gebündelt
alle deutschen Psychedelia, Rock, Progressiv &
elekrokosmischen Combos zwischen 1967 - 1979.
Jetzt müsste man nur noch die italienische Spra'k
beherrschen, außerdem ist dies Begehrnis auf 150
(in Worten: hundertundfünfzig) Ausgaben limitiert -
da gilt für unsereins: mal wieder in die Röhre geguckt.
Laut Google Übersetzer: besprochen werden 500
Bands auf 800 Seiten mit vielen Bildchen (farbig und
schwarz weiß.
