Artist: ARTHUR
Title: In Search Of
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $32.00
"Long awaited release of this psychedelic/acid folk masterpiece from the North. Arthur was a Canadian musician who recorded this unique masterpiece as a demo-only one sided album on the "Two Dot" label in Colorado in 1969. Only a hand full of demo copies were released and sent out to major labels to get a record deal. This happened only later after he signed with Tumbleweed Records and released two albums as Arthur Gee. This first ever official release includes his complete demo lp, unreleased sessions and his mega rare 45 rpm both from before the LP and recorded in Canada. The music can be described as a mixture of Perry Leopold, William C.Beeley and early Pink Floyd (his 45 rm) which is pure magic. Talking about psychedelic/acid folk albums, this is one of the top five best ever lps in this genre! Simply a record for the Isle, and housed in one of the best hippie psychedelic covers ever... Pressed on heavy audiophile vinyl, ultra heavy old style cardboard sleeve and an insert with a bio written by Arthur." - RD.

Artist: MAD DOG
Title: Dawn of the Seventh Sun
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $30.00
"Monstrous & unreleased at the time heavy/psychedelic/West coast artifact of the highest order. This is one of the five best ever promo only releases to emerge from California. Only released in a quantity of a couple of copies to get a major record deal that never materialized. Three of the songs were used in a low-budget biker flick called Black Angels. The original demo LP had only a plain black label with no kinds of credits. We found this hidden gem looking for unreleased music by the band The Zoo of Presents Chocolate Moose fame. Pressed on heavy audiophile vinyl, ultra heavy old style cardboard sleeve and an insert with unseen pictures and a band bio written by Morgan Cavett." - RD.

Artist: MISTRESS
Title: New Ground
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $24.00
"This was basically a follow-up band of Country Weather as a trio featuring Greg Douglass and Bill Baron. Mistress played all over the San Francisco Bay Area for the better part of a year. They had it all going for them, the songs, the musicianship, drive, ambition, the right attitude, the fans, everything, everything that is except for time; they didnt give it enough before they called it quits. Their first gig was June 15, 1973 and their last was July 14, 1974 and in between there was a ton of fun and a lot of hard rockin. The first time lightning struck for Mistress was in 1996, when TaXim Records in Germany released their original album Free Flyte. The second time that lightning struck Mistress is now, with the release of New Ground, a new album of old music. The music on New Ground is taken from some early rehearsals, demos and radio broadcasts. There are also tracks from Wally Heiders famed San Francisco recording studios. This was in the final days with their new drummer Chuck Burgi who had just replaced Bill Baron about a month before. This was all in an effort to streamline and make their sound a little leaner and meaner and it worked like magic, these are some of their hottest recordings. The insert includes photos of the band and the story told by the different musicians." -RD.

Artist: NEW AGE,THE
Title: All Around
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $24.00
"This is what can be called one of the major sensations in the raga-influenced psychedelic/acid folk field. Also some of the earliest recordings in this genre and hitherto unreleased. After the release of the Light of Day album in 1966 the now legendary Pat Kilroy and Susan Graubard went on with playing and creating music together. What you hear on this album is what they recorded for Warner Brothers in the summer of 1967, a true groundbreaking adventure of the highest order. They expanded in the direction they started in 1966 and the result is far beyond and superior to everything I heard from that time period before in this musical style except for Tim Buckley. No wonder that it didnt come out at that time because those recordings were for sure far too adventurous for Warner Brothers and also for almost every other leading music company at the time. Incredible -- and I mean INCREDIBLE raga-influenced psychedelic/acid folk with some of the best songwriting I know of with monstrous lyrics and deep lead vocals. Also a wide range of instruments were played like incredible raga-esque acoustic guitar, electric bass, Spanish cowbells, bell tree, silver flute, bamboo flutes, viola, tamboura, conga drums, tables, acoustic and electric bass and tambourine. Pat Kilroy sadly died of Hodgkins disease in December of 1967 at a very young age. If this record had a proper release at the time, it would be a major classic and a milestone today in the psychedelic history book. Be ready for an incredible musical trip along with an amazing, long and very intense story behind." Features long/detailed liner notes by Susan Graubard (who also played on Robbie Bashos The Falconers Arm,Vol.1) and a great package overall -- worthy of the hype as a major rediscovery!"-RD

Artist: ORKUSTRA
Title: Orkustra
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $24.00
"Here is what we would name some of the best, most important, unreleased at the time, historical and lost West coast psychedelic recordings ever. This legendary band includes none other that the famed Kenneth Anger soundtrack Creator Bobby Beausoleil as well as a very young David La Flamme, before starting his legendary band Its A Beautiful Day. As for the music, we are talking waaaaayyy out tunes here! The complete B-side features a single long tune which can best be described as Theatre of Eternal Music (the famed Pre-Velvet Underground La Monte Young/ John Cale Drone Band) meets Its A Beautiful Day. This is the missing link between the Drone avant-garde and the hippie scene symbolized by two people that couldnt be further apart. On the other side you will find Middle Eastern influenced hippie psychedelic jams that will remind you of bands like the Beat Of The Earth. No gimmicks, just a true slice of pure acid psychedelia. Sit back and enjoy a very bizarre ride." - RD
SOLD OUT

Artist: PEACE, BREAD & LAND BAND
Title: Peace, Bread & Land Band
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $24.00
...Spirito-Politico Folk Rock 1969-78. "This was basically Sid Browns band (ex Spike-Drivers). When he moved from the Detroit area to San Francisco he went to the Ali Akbar College of Music in Berkeley and formed Peace, Bread & Land Band. They made some recordings. After that the band moved north and released a 10" EP Liberation Music in an oversized envelope (full of 60s motives) and later on a 7" EP. They later changed their name to Peace, Bread & Land and made one album Sid is not very proud of. Thats why he parallelly did one record on his own: Modality Stew. The songs are from all periods with all the songs on the 10" EP." - RD.

Artist: SPEED LIMIT 35
Title: Speed Limit 35
Format: LP
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $30.00
"Unreleased at the time, recordings from 1970/71 by this band from North Carolina with member Stephen Scott ex Ladies WC, the legendary band from Venezuela. He was the main songwriter, bass player and lead singer on the monstrous Ladies WC album. He joined Speed Limit 35 in fall of 1968 after his departure from Venezuela. The band also rehearsed in a club called The Zoo along with the legendary Christopher, that released their mega rare LP Whatcha Gonna Do? on the Chris-Tee label. The music on this album was recorded partly in the studio and partly live when Speed Limit 35 was the opening act for Steppenwolf in April 1970. What you hear are fantastic long heavy psychedelic/West coast styled jams with great guitar leads. It sounds like a mixture between Kristyl, Chirco and Tayles. Pressed on heavy audiophile vinyl, ultra heavy old style cardboard sleeve and an insert with a bio written by Stephen Scott." - RD.

Artist: SPIKEDRIVERS
Title: Folk Rocking Innovation From The Motor City In The Mid 60´s
Format: CD
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $19.00
"Long expected for release and here it is -- one of the best hippie Westcoast releases with deep emotions, unique eastern influenced songwriting/ instrumentation, jingling guitars and mystic vocals -- a real masterpiece (most songs were never released)! The first incarnation of this band consisted of Marycarol and Sid Brown (both later in the Peace, Bread & Land Band), Ted Lucas, Larry Cruse and Richard Keelan (later in the band Perth County Conspiracy). They made a fantastic single on OM Records in 1966 and taught the Paul Butterfield Blues Band how to jam on these ethnic sounds you hear on the album East-West. They recorded for Atlantic Records where Ahmet Ertegun supervised and Tom Dowd engineered the sessions. They were offered a dream contract on the spot but Ted Lucas said that he didnt want to work for a Turk. Shortly afterward they split and the three without Lucas and Keelan added Marshall Rubinoff and Ron Cobb. In 1967 they recorded some tracks that are featured on this album. Side 1 is Spike-Drivers 1 (with the two songs of the first single). Side 2 is Spike-Drivers 2. Contains detailed bio and photos, great artwork by Sid Brown." - RD.

Artist: WEST COAST NATURAL GAS
Title: Twos A Pair
Format: CD
Label: RD
Country: Switzerland
Price: $22.00
"An album full of vintage 1966-1968 music by the band that brought you the incredible Hashish on the legendary San Francisco Sampler Fifth Pipe Dream. First ever release of this killer Westcoast psychedelic monster that took many years to complete!!! West Coast Natural Gas started in 1965 in Seattle. In early 1967 they went to San Francisco to work for a local music manager named Matthew Katz. Katz was the original manager for Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape and later also Its a Beautiful Day. He talked West Coast Natural Gas into signing a contract with him but being young and stupid, they didnt realize at the time that they had basically signed everything over to him. They went into the studio and recorded some original tunes: A Favor, Go Run and Play, The Jumping Frog, Hashish, Water or Wine, Beyond This Place, and Twos A Pair. In early 1968 the band broke up and went back to Seattle. Katz released a single -- Go Run and Play / A Favor on his S.F. Sound label under the name West Coast Natural Gas. Later he released a compilation album -- the first San Francisco Sound sampler -- called Fifth Pipe Dream. The four songs mentioned before, Water or Wine, Hashish, Beyond This Place and Twos A Pair were the ones recorded by WCNG and relabeled by Katz as Indian Puddin and Pipe. This superb release includes all the above mentioned songs, plus others from acetates. As a big surprise we found another four never before heard songs. All recorded 1966 in a local Seattle Recording Studio before they even went to San Francisco, all of which are included in this great release. A pinnacle of the West Coast psychedelic acid scene." - RD.
