Artist: 3/3
Title: 3/3
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $48.00
"First reissue of this ultra-obscure pre-no-wave LP, originally released in Japan, 1975." - FE. "3/3 are Reck (guitar, vocals), Higo Hiroshi (bass) and Chiko Hige (drums). The name was inspired by a Japanese comic (4/4). In February 1975, 3/3 (Sanbun No San) released this album in a tiny pressing of 15 copies only to get a record deal. The cover was homemade and the recording sounds live but without audience. The music is ultra heavy guitar-dominated psychedelic rock like a mixture of Blue Cheer / Randy Holden/MC5 and early punk/new wave bands. The sound quality is mediocre but the music is a blaster. 3/3 has never released another recording. Both Reck and Hige then moved to New York where they stayed for over a year and played with James Chance & the Contortions, Lydia Lunch (Teenage Jesus & The Jerks) and others (No New York movement). They returned to Japan in 1978 to start a new group which became very famous: Friction. In 1979 Friction appeared on a compilation and in 1980 they recorded their first album. Friction released more than 10 albums in Japan. Friction has certainly had a heavy influence on the late 1970s Japanese punk and new wave scene. Reck is again active on the Tokyo scene and has teamed up with Haino Keiji and hardcore drummer Pill, with whom he performs under the name Head Rush. This album of 3/3 is the rarest underground album ever released in Japan." - Shadoks.

Artist: ABSTRACT TRUTH
Title: Silver Trees
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $46.00
"From South Africa, 1970. Edition of 500 numbered LPs, matte heavy gatefold sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "The band Abstract Truth existed only for a very short time, but it was a time of super-creativity. They exploded on to the Durban music scene early in 1969, released 2 studio albums during 1970 on EMI, which we have here. The 3rd album Cool Sounds For Heads is only a compilation of these 2 LPs. Ken E. Henson on guitar & vocals / Peter Measroch on piano, organ, flute, harpsichord & vocals / George Wolfaardt on bass, flute, drums & vocals / Sean Bergin on sax & flute. Silver Trees is a milestone in South African music among bands like Freedoms Children, Astra and Third Eye. Musically it follows the same routes as UK bands like Bloodwin Pig, Traffic, Spooky Tooth and many others. Progressive underground of the best kind, with organ, guitars, flutes, sax and great vocals, sometimes with Zappa-style guitar solos." -Shadoks

Title: Totum
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $46.00
"From South Africa, 1970. Edition of 500 numbered LPs, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "Ken E Henson on guitar, vocals and sitar / Robbie Pavid on percussion / Brian Gibson on bass & vocals / Sean Bergin on sax & flute. Excellent early 70s melodic wistful freak-rock, blended with African sounds featuring assorted instruments: keyboards, flutes, electric guitars, saxophone, percussion, etc. A refreshing approach with an Eastern touch. If you like UK bands such as Quintessence, If and Blodwin Pig, this album goes in the same direction. It is more trippy/stoned and acoustic than the Silver Trees album." -Shadoks

Artist: ADOLPHUS, PAUL
Title: The Dawn Wind
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $45.00
First reissue of a very obscure Japanese private press folk album from 1973. Deluxe gatefold reproduction of the original sleeve, usual lavish Shadoks treatment. Edition of 350 copies. The Australian artist Paul Adolphus recorded the album in Kyoto/Japan, playing guitar, vocals, flutes, shakuhachi. Totally vibed-out "personal" folk-psych. "My first visit to Japan was in 1968 after living in India and Sri Lanka. My wife at the time arrived in Kyoto, and had our first child there. We really loved it. We returned to Sweden then went back to Kyoto and had our second child there. We lived in a two hundred year old farm house in a village outside Kyoto. It was a great scene at the time. Japanese artists, bohemians, and visiting foreigners making art music poetry etc. I was  playing music with different people, then developed a musical relationship with Mitsu Harada. We did concerts and toured to other cities in Japan together. Before leaving Japan Mitsu organised to record the album together. Mitsus father was the grand master of a calligraphy school. In a large room in the school Mitsu set up mikes and a big stereo recorder consul. Most of the playing was by Mitsu and myself, an American friend played a little guitar and percussion to fill some holes. A group of friends sat around, so it was a bit of a living room concert feel. It was my material, Mitsu engineered as well as playing. I think there were 200 copies pressed, the covers were hand made, so it was released into the small arts community of Kyoto and Tokyo. Not long after the recording I travelled with the family to Australia, I had been away from here for a decade. I worked on a lot of projects here, composing for theatre and dance. I had a group called Living Music - an African drummer, Indian tabla, didjeridoo, winds etc. It was early days, not too many people were ready for world music." Shadoks: "Incredibly rare and sought-after mellow folk album with beautiful songs and harmonies, like a Japanese version of Extradition." - Shadoks.

Artist: AKBAYRAM, EDIP
Title: Edip Akbayram
Format: Double CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $18.50
"Edip Akbayram is the top of the BIG three of Turkish delights (Erkin Koray, Baris Mancho & Edip). The best psych tracks from his first two albums and many singles (like in the other Shadoks release of Erkin Koray), 22 tracks, 90- minutes of music. His band Dostlar formed the songs into something which takes you on an Eastern trip, full of fuzz guitar, electric sax and great percussions. Edips dark voice make you shiver and you feel like dancing right away. This is as good as Erkin Koray with a deep spirit and very political words. One of the best albums we have released the past three or four years." - Shadoks.

Artist: ALRUNE ROD
Title: Alrune Rock
Format: Double LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $56.00
“Shadoks Music present a reissue of the Danish and rare English version of Alrune Rock, the third album by Alrune Rod, originally released in 1972 and 1973 respectively. "Alrune Rod" is the name for the Danish mythical mandrake root, and also the name for one of the most popular hippie bands from Denmark who shared the stage with Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin among other famous bands. Alrune Rock, their third album, came in two different versions: In 1972, with Danish vocals and in 1973, the rare English vocals version with slightly different mixes. For the English version, the band used the cover image of their first album, Alrune Rod (1969), but with heavy color changes and a sticker on the front. Still, many people - even in Denmark - got confused about two very different albums with the similar artwork. The release presented here uses the outside of the English version, each printed inner sleeve has the correct English/Danish cover. During March and April of 1972, Alrune Rod chose record producer Freddy Hansson to Rosenberg studios in Copenhagen. At this point, the band was a trio: Leif Roden Nielson, Ole Poulsen and Karsten Høst. This was the first studio recording for Ole. Karsten had played on the previous Hej Du album (1971) and Leif would appear on all of Alrune Rods albums. Alrune Rock shows the group moving away from the violent and emotional drama as their main expression, seeking strength through a technically more competent music. Alrune Rock reached #3 on the "Top 10" charts of the Danish radio with more than 10,000 copies of sold. A true Danish hippie blockbuster. The English version of Alrune Rock was ready for the stores in in March of 1973. Alrune Rock is at both melodic and full of improvisations. It belongs to the top of the Danish underground scene among Young Flowers, Culpepers Orchard, Burnin Red Ivanhoe, and Hurdy Gurdy, just to name a few. Their musical style is often described as a hybrid between The Grateful Dead and early Pink Floyd. A Danish rock classic. This reissue of Alrune Rock includes a rare poster, two-page insert with new liner notes and many unseen pictures from the period 1972-74. Comes as 180 gram vinyl in heavy gatefold sleeve and printed inner sleeves. Edition of 600 (numbered).” - Shadoks.

Artist: AMANAZ
Title: Africa
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $46.00
"From Zambia, Africa, 1975. glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing. Amanaz was formed in 1973. Three songs are in the native language Bemba, and 9 songs in English, recorded in Kitwe, the 3rd biggest city in Zambia up north. Musically, it goes in the same direction as Blo, The Witch and Question Mark, but this album is way cooler and stoned with an amazing fuzz guitar all over which sounds like an African version of early Cream. The cover makes it look very traditional but after a few spins, you are aware that this one is very special. Its so cool, so tightly-produced and easily compares with UK underground albums with a touch of African beats. Still completely unknown, so this album has not been scored yet by the collectors scene. A real surprise." -Shadoks

Artist: ATKINSON, STEVE
Title: Small Boats
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"500 numbered copies. 180 gram vinyl in a heavy sleeve with insert. There are not many underground/folk albums we are keen on putting out. Steve Atkinsons Small Boats is one we loved straight away. Steve was just not easy to find. So with some help from a student (Steve was a teacher) we were able to locate him. If you think the early Mick Stevens albums are cool, Tony Caro & John is a killer album, and you love the tradition of British underground folk music, you will really like this album. Very well composed electric and acoustic songs with beautiful vocals, guitar, violin, recorder, cello, bass, chimes and clarinet, this albums is a little masterpiece recorded between 1980 and 1981. Steve said: My musical education came from the folk clubs of Bedfordshire, Fairport Convention, John Peel, west coast bands like Love, Jefferson Airplane and the Doors, Punk, The Beach Boys and of course the Beatles. A very beautiful album which deserves a good spot as a shiny star in the folk music universe." -Shadoks.

Artist: BANGO
Title: Bango
Format: CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $15.00
"Originally released in 1970, this is extra-heavy Brazilian psych, with killer guitars and well-crafted original songs. This is one of the most sought-after albums from Brazil in the realm of hard psych, and you may already know one track from the Love Peace & Poetry: Brazilian Psychedelic Music album which is quite a standout. Every track is a winner. For many underground collectors this is the ultimate psych album, so it needed a good reissue. What Lula Côrtes is for underground folk and Sound Factory is for garage, Bango is THE psychedelic album together with Modulo 1000 ." - Shadoks.

Title: Deaf Priscilla
Format: CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $16.00
"Here is one of the best albums we ever laid our hands on. Perhaps better than Public Nuisance and as good as Brain Police from Rockadelic. This album is a milestone such as Cold Suns Dark Shadow . Not one track is losing energy (and there are 14 great ones). The album was recorded in April 1968 at Western Sound Recorders L.A. for a famous surf label, but was never released. Songs such as: Loneliness Is A Sometime Thing, Dead Woman Blues and Deaf Priscilla are outstanding but as highlights of this album we would vote all 14 tracks. Just perfect vocals, tons of fuzz guitar and tough lyrics. We will love this album forever." - Shadoks.

Title: Chapter One

Price: $45.00
New LP version (previously issued by Parallel World, what seems like a millions years ago) in very deluxe package. Has never been on CD, so your only chance to hear this South African classic from 1972, and one of the better Shadoks efforts. "For the first time BLO comes out with the original gatefold sleeve. This band from Nigeria became very famous among collectors worldwide. Perhaps this is the most sought after album from Africa. The 3 members, Berkely Jones, Laolu Akintobi and Mike Odumosu created the name BLO from B for Berkely, L for Laolu and O for Odumosu. 2 members toured with Ginger Baker in 1972 and BLO supported Osibisa on tour in Nigeria. At that time BLO was voted as the best band in Nigeria. So finally its out. Enjoy this amazing Underground album with African beats."

Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $74.00
"This box starts a series of several releases in the near future: all releases of one band in one box, all with the original covers. Blops made 3 albums in Chile, all incredibly rare. The music is most beautiful. If you think you like El Congreso, you love Kissing Spell and Embrujo you will adore the music of the Blops. The first album from 1970 is pure underground folk with some electric moments, the second from 1971 becomes more electric still with most touching songs which makes you shiver and the third album from 1973 is complete electric and psychedelic with a progressive touch. Members of Kissing Spell + Embrujo (which will be released as a box-set too in the near future) became later members of Blops. The music from underground in Chile is well-known for perhaps the best music in whole South America. The Pacific coast, the influence of Indio music and the tough political pressure in 1973 makes this music so special. A real masterpiece." - Shadoks.

Country: Germany
Price: $55.00
"This is a 3CD compilation of the rare and beautiful complete works of Chile-based Blops. If you think you like El Congreso, if you love Kissing Spell and Embrujo, you will adore the music of Blops. The first album from 1970 is pure underground folk with some electric moments, the second from 1971 becomes more electric with touching songs which make you shiver and the third album from 1973 is completely electric and psychedelic with a progressive touch. Los Blops formed in 1970 when Eduardo Gatti (vocals and guitars), Julio Villalobos (guitars), Pedro Greene (drums), Andres Orrego (keyboards) and Juan Pablo Orrego (bass) performed covers (Beatles, Rolling Stones, Animals, Cream, Kinks) in a local club in Isla Negra, with additional changes in the band with the addition of members Sergio Bezard (drums) and Juan Contreras (flute and keyboards). Their first LP was recorded in 12 hours on a two-track machine and produced by DICAP (Discoteca Del Cantar Popular De Las Juventudes Comunistas), a label that was affiliated with Communist youth, whose tapes were later destroyed by the military. Their first concert at the Marconi Theatre showcased their own material and was recorded by a television crew. Their first LP includes a song that became a hymn that generations would continue to sing, "Los Momentos." The LP version of this box sold out quickly, and here is the CD version of it in a beautifully laminated heavy book-box, with 3CDs in jewel cases containing two non-LP extra tracks, limited to 1000 copies." - Shadoks.

Price: $43.00
"Numbered edition of 450 copies, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram white vinyl pressing, with insert. "There were only four good and rare albums on the Danish Spectator label: Terje, Jesper & Joachim (which we have just done on LP and CD), Moses, Days and the rarest of them all: Blues Addicts. What a guitar work this is. Ivan Horn really kicks ass with his extra-heavy guitar. As good as the heavy Cream songs, in parts as creative as Jimi Hendrix. The musical range and the guitar style is as good as the best early Eric Clapton work with the far out techniques of Jimi Hendrix. All their own compositions, long tracks, extra heavy guitar, English vocals & heavy drum sounds. Ivan Horn (guitars, vocals & kazoo), Mich Brink (bass), Gibber Thomsen (vocals & congas), Henning Aasbjerg (drums). If Spectator would have kept to rock music as their musical style instead of switching to jazz, those four bands would have been successful on the international rock circus." -Shadoks.

Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $40.00
"Shadoks Music presents a reissue of Rock Machine (1974) by Blueset. This great Swedish album by Blueset was recorded in Södertälje, not far from Stockholm. Blueset recorded two singles on Efel prior to the album plus another single the same year this album came out. Since at least two of the original members on the album have passed away, it has been a hard search for the music owners. Shadoks was able to find the original bass player from the singles, Ingemar Linder (who also supplied all photos) and Kerstin Loong, the widow of Kenth Loong, guitarist, singer and composer of the album. Blueset on Rock Machine is: Kenth Loong - guitar & vocals; Mikael Olofsson - bass; Claes Jansson - drums. This LP has one bonus track from a rare single with Ingemar Linder on bass. Rock Machine is highly recommended for fans of hard rock and heavy blues-psych, stoned hippie vibes, heavy guitar work, great English vocals and strong bass and drums grooves. 180 gram vinyl.

Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $48.00
"Along with Kaleidoscope and Los Ovnis, this is the rarest of all Mexican psychedelic albums. Bodo Molitor recorded this album for Orfeon records, Mexico, as label mates of Kaleidoscope. Bodo created the famous cover for Kaleidoscope and several other covers for this album. Hits Internacionales was recorded in 1968 and released in 1969. Bodo was born in Germany and traveled all over the world playing music. Included here are cover versions, some of his own compositions, and an extra 4-track EP of amazing, unheard tracks. An ultra-rare original of this late 60s Mexican garage psych album is a Holy Grail for collectors, in the same league with Mexicos Kaleidoscope. After this release, Bodo left Mexico to travel the world playing with great musicians. He now lives and plays music in Cairo, Egypt, rocking the center of the Islamic world. 500 numbered/heavy sleeve/insert/180 gram pressing; the bonus 7" is on red vinyl." -Shadoks

"This is Masayoshi Takanakas (pre-Flied Egg) first-ever recording, originally released in 1971 as a tiny private pressing in Japan, also one of the great collectors unsolved mysteries, appearing in Hans Pokoras book, 3001 Record Collector Dreams. Its so rare that it took nearly two years to locate the material. The music is West Coast-oriented hard psych with a progressive touch - all original material and really well-produced. This is a concept album like Spooky Tooth/Pierre Henrys Ceremony, and a true hippie undertaking by Takanaka, Hitoki Goto, Michio Ara, Tushio Tsukagishi, Toru Hatano and Takefumi Yoshida - an album where many musicians of the Japanese underground scene were involved.

Paul Lupien - organ / George Runyan - bass, vocals / Alan Goldman - guitar / Jerome Charles Greenberg - drums, recorded 8 great tracks which never came out so far. We could even use the original artwork. This is a fantastic prog / psychedelic monster LP, a mixture of dreamy organ psych with heavy fuzz bluster, very much like CA Quintet. Ghostly swirly organs, burning rough guitars, sound effects, fuzz/wahwah guitars, trippy lysergic vocals and great melodies. A killer album from start to end." - Shadoks.

Artist: BURNIN RED IVANHOE
Title: M 144
Format: Double LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $60.00
"Shadoks Music present the first ever reissue of Burnin Red Ivanhoes M 144, originally released in 1969. Burnin Red Ivanhoe is a Danish progressive rock band which was formed by Karsten Vogel in 1967 in Copenhagen, Denmark. After a couple of years touring, the band were signed by the Sonet label in 1969 and released their debut album M 144. In the UK, the groups record distribution was done by Dandelion Records after John Peel heard their debut album and receiving some positive write-ups in the Melody Maker. After several albums, the group split in 1974 with Karsten Vogel forming Secret Oyster. M 144 is one of the earliest (if not the earliest) progressive rock albums of Scandinavia and certainly of Denmark (along with Culpeppers Orchards self-titled released 1971). Resolutely rock in spirit, the album oscillates between the blues, soul, jazz (or more likely jazz-rock) and many more folkloric styles, without actually being "folky". The blues-rock and strong psych-folk influence is demonstrated in most of the shorter tracks. Considering the band had been together for two years prior to recording M 144, its not surprising that they had enough material to fill a double album. Presented in a heavy gatefold cover with the original pop-up sleeve. Includes a printed inner sleeve and a two-page insert with extensive liner notes and many unseen photos. 180 gram vinyl.

They wanted to record only a single but came up with a complete album of self-composed tracks. Since it was not that easy for a Scottish band to get attention down in London, this album was the only pressing ever done and sold at band gigs only. 5 musicians, great organ, vocals, extra heavy fuzz-guitar, drums and bass; amazing underground songs, influenced by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Beggars Opera, a true lost classic.

Title: Buttocks
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"We always thought Elonkorjuu was the heaviest album in the early 70s from Finland. But Charlies album features loud and wild guitars, screaming vocals, and can easily be described as the most outrageous Finnish album of the 70s not far away from Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Buttocks is a heavy, hypnotic and progressive with amazing guitar work from Eero Ravi, the musical soul of the band. So the Finnish scene had much more to offer back in the early 70s beside Wigwam and Tasavallan Presidenti. They have recorded Buttocks for Love Records. Mika Kaurismäki (film director/producer) wrote: I had already started to discover blues music, John Mayall, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and others, so it was quite logical, that I became of a fan of Charlies. In Lahti, we thought Charlies was the best band in Finland. Charlies played the famous Ruisrock festival in 1970. What a great band this is. Their first album Musiikkia elokuvasta Julisteiden liimaajat will be released early next year. Buttocks is so good and rare that is deserves a good reissue. The album comes with many extras such as photos and extensive liner notes. Dave Lindholm (musician) wrote: Charlies was the first big Finnish rock band for me. They played loud and rough. They looked like men, not popstars. They played the music I love. Could I ask for more? Well, I didnt! 500 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl, in a heavy sleeve." -Shadoks.

Format: LP

Country: Germany
Price: $41.00
"2015 release. Shadoks Music presents Jail Sessions from Finish legends, Charlies, recorded in 1969 and 1970. This album was recorded in 1969 and 1970 in Charlies rehearsal room, a "drunk tank" at the local jail. Since Kari Lehtinens father (later on known simply by the nickname, Pitkä) was the local police officer, the band could use this room for playing and recording. After Charlies finished Musiikkia Elokuvasta Julisteiden Liimaajat (SHAD 163LP, 1970), they got a lot of positive feedback, but they never thought the final product sounded right. Pitkä (bass) and Eero (guitars) spent a lot of time considering how to deliver a much harder sounding album as a follow-up, representing the true Charlies spirit. They got the chance to make a new album, Buttocks (1970), which was released by the famous Love Records label. The result again was only as good as the budget resources provided. Although in the end, the album Buttocks gained a good, hard reputation, they were never content with it. One night Pitkä said: "Eero, we should have made our album from your tapes, the result would have been much different." Jail Sessions is a recording from those tapes, the sound the band was happy with. Much heavier in sound, amazing electric guitar, 100% pure heavy underground sound. After 45 years this Charlies album comes out as the band wanted it to sound like with many alternative versions of songs from the Buttocks album and unknown songs as well. 180 gram vinyl.

Their song "Sunshine Supergirl" is a good example of classic work by this amazing underground band, featuring great guitar riffs by Eero Ravi. The original LP was pressed only a few hundred times and is a very rare collectors item today. What a great band and what a great guitar player.

"The Contents Are was one of many sixties bands from the Quad Citys fertile garage music scene. With labels/studios like Fredlo and IGL, it was a very healthy regional area for bands with an unusually high per capita for record releases. Up until the recent discovery of an original copy a couple years ago, it was only rumored to exist and remained an enigma with hardcore record collectors. In most cases, the Contents Are were only known by astute collectors for their two excellent 45 releases (non-LP). Well the mystery is over, and heres your chance to hear one of the rarest & greatest garage records ever recorded. Heres the story about the record: Four high school seniors from Iowa decide to release an album of all original tunes, and was exclusively sold at their live shows. Originally released on the Rok label (a subsidiary of the already obscure Fredlo label) in 1967 with only 100 copies pressed. These guys were not your typical garage band ? talented players, professional grade vocalists and no cover songs!!! Their music is a nice blend of garage rock with hints of hipster folk and early psychedelic influences. As good if not better as other similar top shelf rarities like Mystery Meat and the Bachs, but no major quantity find making original copies of the Contents Are ten times rarer. Get it or miss it! LP 450 numbered/glossy heavy sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert." - Shadoks.

Price: $48.00
"Numbered edition of 500, glossy heavy sleeve on 180 gram vinyl with insert. Originally released in South Africa, 1969. It was a long search to locate the rights for this album since it was not with EMI anymore. With the help of musicians and producers from The Third Eye and Freedoms Children, weve found the original producer. He told us that the brother/sister band John & Philipa Cooper went to Britain shortly after the album was made and there it lost track. This amazing album has the same class as Billy Nichols, Duncan Browne and Blossom Toes. Many other musicians from S.A. were helping out. Every track is just great. Well composed underground songs, folk rock, effects, pop tunes just the right mixture for an album full of ideas and masterfully played. Perhaps one of the rarest albums from S.A. This album would have been a great success if it was produced in UK. It just has the right feel with the combination of great songs with a 60s art-vibe. Female / male vocals, Julian Laxton on guitar, keyboards; beside Jon & Philipa, 8 more musicians on the album. This LP is just a perfect 1969 underground folk-rock album." -Shadoks

"From Denmark 1970; LP in edition of 450 numbered copies, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing, insert. The Danish group Days was formed in Copenhagen in the winter 1967/68 by Peter Lindhe (drums), John Kjaergaard (vocals/rhythm guitar), Ole Fester (vocals/bass) and Lars Reinau (vocals/lead guitar). The bands repertoire was mainly rock and blues oriented with cover versions of songs from John Mayalls Bluesbreakers, Cream, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones. During 1968/69 Peter Lindhe and Lars Reinau started writing original material to the band and the repertoire started changing from rock/blues cover versions to self composed more lyrical songs with elements of the Beatles, Procol Harum and (early) Deep Purple. In 1969 Jørn Anker (Hammond organ) joined the band and he too started contributing new original songs to the band. The Days LP was recorded in the early summer of 1970 and in 1971 the band split up. Days is one the the rarest albums from Denmark which also came out on Spectator (Blues Addicts, Terje Jesper & Joachim, Moses). It is full of amazing prog tunes with great organ elements and strong fuzz guitar. A killer album from beginning to end."- Shadoks.

Price: $44.00
"600 numbered copies. 180 gram vinyl in a heavy sleeve with large poster and insert. Dreams Get Dreamy is perhaps the most fantastic and unique underground album from Scandinavia. Recorded in 1967 it was the first LP by legendary guitarist Terje Rypdal. A year later Terje recorded his first solo album also for Polydor. The album Get Dreamy has great original songs full of wild fuzz guitar, swirling Hammond organ, sound effects and strong vocals. The musicals influences could be Cream and Jimi Hendrix with the lyrical touch of Procol Harum. All songs very well produced and recorded in Stockholm. Dream started straight away with a full album which was not common in the musical world in 1967. Most bands produced singles, first. With a lot enthusiastic help from Norway, including Terje Rypdal, plus the cooperation of many photographers, we are happy to put this album out with a big poster insert including a great band story and many, many unseen photos. The album was mastered in 24bit direct from the original master tapes. So the sound is really good and many tracks you can hear for the first time in full stereo (the original Polydor pressing had half of the tracks in mono). So, this might be for us on of the most important releases of this year since this took so much work and passion. We just love this album." -Shadoks.

Among the great albums from Chile like Blops, Aguaturbia, Los Jaivas and Escombros, this album is just amazing, just like their first. Beautiful compositions and instrumentation, very well played, strong vocals and poetic lyrics; we would vote this album as one of the best from the of South America. Chile seems to be the county for extraordinary pop and underground songs going right into the heart. What a shame that after 1973 until 1990 (Pinochet dictatorship), no more bands could work anymore.

Only one single and one LP was released. Escombros are: Walter Sitzmann, Lito Benito, Ricardo Mendeville, Jose Rosenblut and Michel Boisier. Walters great compositions and vocals on all tracks create a unique and strong underground vibe, with great fuzz guitars, drums, bass and organ that are much heavier than in most bands from Chile. Their influences are Jimmy Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd and Grand Funk Railroad. All English vocals. After this recording Walter left Chile, so the band split up. For us Escombros is perhaps the best example for really cool underground music from Latin America with amazing vocals and extraordinary songs.

"Most do not know much about music from Bolivia, like us. Whats flashing in our minds is the Andes, La Paz and flute music by Indios. But there are some great rock & underground bands such as Wara, Climax and most of all Estrella De Marzo. This album (still unknown to most collectors) is not only special because its from a country not many listeners know much about. This album is so great, so much underground, so unique and well crafted, that it goes into a strong competition with most classic underground releases from South America. If you are into wild fuzz guitar ala Zappa, and if you like Kissing Spell from Chile, beautiful vocals with strong lyrics and great beats, you will love this album. The early Pink Floyd has also influenced this album. For us it was one of the big musical discoveries for this year. Every track is great, high spirit progressive underground rock, as good as it can be.

Price: $46.00
"Reissue of this private pressing from the USA, 1972. LP in an edition of 450 numbered copies, with glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing. "All tracks were recorded by JW Jarquhar in 1972. The songs on The Formal Female were written as an outcry against the materialistic nature of the woman during that time period in 1972. Many will tell you it is still that way. JW had recently extricated himself from a 10 year marriage and the words from this experience fit the lyrics on the album still. During that time he lived by himself in a 3rd floor apartment in Philadelphia. It was a street with a lot of traffic. Car horns, busses, police sirens, fire engines, screams, and sometimes even gunshots filled the airwaves. For this reason he sealed up the windows and any other openings with sound-proofing foam. This was necessary because his music was recorded in there. JW was the instrumentalist; rhythm guitar, lead guitar, drums, vocals, and bass. However he could not play them all at once, so he purchased a four track simulsync Teac recorder... professional version. This allowed him to record on one track and then play it back and separately record on a second, third, and fourth track. The original tracks were recorded at 15 IPS. A final mix was then made in stereo with yet a fifth overdub, when needed. At that time other effects were limited. It is amazing electric fuzz album full of effects and its a masterpiece such as D.R. Hooker. Extra heavy psychedelic." -Shadoks.

At that time I was lead guitarist of the band The Gentlemen (a garage northwest group that included Ze Ramalho, who released the wonderful DLP together with Lula Cortez in one of his line-ups and recorded a rare LP and one 45). For this unique project we invited Ze Ramalho, the musician and composer Elisio Alexandrino (Golinha), to control the four-channel tape recorders the musician Enilton Araujo, the twelve string viola arrangements were done by Irapuan (Pupu), drummer Edmilson (Crauna), percussion by special guest Ze Crisologo, and Hugo Filho (Hugo Leão) on nylon guitar,bass, keyboards and art direction.

In autumn 1969 he helped put together super heavy rock group Jumbo with Freddy Lindquist, Leif Jensen and Tore Syvertsen. The group had two singles, but were dissolved during the work on their first LP. Finjarn and Jensen made the album complete with Lindquist, Arild Krosby, Arne Kvikstad and Grete Christoffersen. Yngvar Holm wrote an enthusiastic article that was published by the jacket. Briton John Mills was the producer for the album, which came out in autumn 1970, and that could be placed side by side with the hard, progressive rock from abroad.

In those rebellious and psychedelic times we barely earned enough to pay for food at times, while developing our musical horizons. I am amazed we survived those days. Eventually, we became a 3 piece band - The Flow. We rented a room in NYC -- also renting a room was Wicked Lester, a band later to be known as KISS. We used the space for our own explorations. With our limited funds, we could only complete half of the project so we released the record with one blank side and later on, added more material." -Pete Fine

Shadoks Music presents all three records by Freedoms Children, now collected together, after two years of struggle and hard work with tons of help from collectors in South Africa, England, Austria and the U.S.A. Since all mastertapes were lost in a big fire, they had to be mastered from the original vinyl, using two or three mint copies of each album to make the best possible sounding product. All three albums are the most wanted albums ever from South Africa. Some call them "The Pink Floyd of South Africa," and if the political situation in S.A. at that time would have been easier, they would have had the same status in the international music market as Pink Floyd. Beautifully composed songs, amazing instrumentation, well-crafted guitar work and great singers. The extra-heavy prog sound beats most albums in the same direction coming from the UK or U.S.A.

Germany became a second home, in particular Frankfurt and Munich and they found favor playing at many US Army air bases. Fusion Farm played the 15,000 capacity Frankfurt Festhalle supporting Bad Company and Black Oak Arkansas - this show is infamous because Black Oak Arkansas never showed up and a riot ensued, leaving the venue trashed.

The band was only known by a very small insider-group, but those fans just adored Hardal. The secret of Hardals small popularity is that in 1979 the Turkish rock scene was comatose. Cem Karaca left to Germany, Erkin Koray moved to Canada, Edip Akbayram got stuck because of his political ambitions. Only Baris Mancho was still on the road. To start a new band was tough in Turkey. Hardal also recorded 2 albums later. The music is the best Turkish progressive underground you can think of.

The band forged ahead and released another single (1973), album (1973) and two 10" EPs (1974 & 1975). All of their releases were small pressings of 100 copies and to this day, Instant Orange remains virtually unknown. Their homemade sound is a refreshing reflection of their West Coast folk-rock influences that were so prevalent during the 60s and early 70s. All original tracks with inspiration from bands like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love, Sandy Bull and others. Songs full of electric and acoustic guitars with nice doses of McGuinnesque 12-string riffing as well as many unsuspecting surprises (antiquated electronic effects, rambling rural explorations, long jams, experimental moves, stoner banter and other weirdness between songs, caveman fuzz, etc). A solid listen with enough original imagination to keep it interesting without the band creating an identity crisis by trying too hard to be something else than themselves. Hear it all on this limited double album, but grab it before it becomes elusive like some of San Bernardinos motorcycle riding inhabitants. 450 numbered/glossy heavy gatefold sleeve/180 gram pressing/insert." - Shadoks.

Double bass drum, cool outfits, they must have been been great on stage. Damin Eih, A.L.K., and Brother Clark wrote: In 67 I saw two local bands that again amped up the juice, The Litter and Jokers Wild. Both bands played original music and had excellent psychedelic-raved guitar players, Zippy Caplan (Litter) and Lonnie Knight (Jokers Wild). That brought everything to a new level.

The band was not actually from Mexico: the musicians came from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Spain, and the album was recorded in 1967 in the Dominican Republic. The manager took it to Mexico where it had a tiny release of 200 copies on the Orfeon label. They were friends with Addib Casta from Ladies WC, Venezuela, so one song is by Ladies WC -- the rest are all original compositions. The music features some amazing, heavy, guitar-based psychedelia of the best kind, and there are three bonus tracks here, including a live track from 1969. The cover art has also been completely restored (bootleg versions were heavily cropped) with the original label artwork for the first time. The package also includes many photos and a band history, making this a collectors dream come true." -Shadoks

Country: Germany
Price: $42.00
"Since this record appeared in Hans Pokoras 3001 book most collectors (including those in Japan) were searching for this album with no luck. So now its the time to solve another mystery. Beside the other unknown album shown in the same book "3/3" (who will be also out next year on Shadoks) Martha is the one everybody was talking about. What is it, somebody seen it, it must be so rare, is it any good? This album came to us in a big deal (the guy who owned it wanted $7000 cash for it). Martha is the first of three albums composed by the Japanese artist Kamijo. The other two are TOMO (also incredibly rare) and Tomoaki Kamijo KK Band -- dear my friend (pretty too). But Martha is the best of them all. All English vocals, lots of fuzz guitar, percussion, piano and great vocals. An underground-rock album with folky elements and a west coast touch. Kamijo is the Mick Stevens of Japan. ...you need a gun...I need a son.. Five musicians, 10 great songs." - Shadoks.

"King George Discovery Peace Of Mind was recorded in Sweden in 1968 with the US musician King George Clemens on guitar & vocals. A close friendship to Jimi Hendrix, who toured also Sweden in 1968, dropped many tracks from the release plan when the band was recording an album which also came out that year. All tracks who where competing with the music of Jimi Hendrix was not released, until now. A collector from England found the unknown tracks who were pressed only as a demo LP for the band. What a great find. Some tracks where placed on YouTube and collectors where starting raving about this album. It is so good, the guitar work is amazing, as psychedelic as it can get. We could release this album in cooperation with King George Clemens and we are proud to have this treasure released on vinyl. Its just great! One of the most important release this year for sure!

"Beside BLO and El Congreso, this is the best album from Chile and the rarest one. Beautiful compositions and well-crafted songs sung in English and Spanish. Kissing Spell was born in 1967. One night after a gig they said: No more fucking other peoples music, it is time for something new, created by us and for people who want to see us and not some fucking Beatle clone. Kissing Spell was seen as a very elite group who played very few times for large audiences, and consequently the records did not sell much. After Kissing Spell the same band became Embrujo, which is the Spanish translation for Spell and recorded another album in 1971. A true masterpiece." #d edition of 550 copies.

Country: Germany
Price: $43.00
"This first ever album by Chilean band Los Jaivas had no name but it always was called El Volantin . It was only release in Chile in a small limited run for a real private label. Thats why someone could call it the rarest album from Chile, way rarer than Aguarturbia, Kissing Spell and Embrujo. Perhaps not as much sought after but rare as gold-dust. The music is real trippy and you can compare it close with the Lula Cortez Paêbirú album. Long passages of trippy sounds waving into fuzz guitar songs. There is a more acoustic side of the album and the second side is all electric. Really amazing music for everybody into acid trips into the wild South American wilderness. I am sure that this album was banned after 1973 when the Chilean government became nasty to musician from another planet." - Shadoks. Great record!

"When we are talking about really rare and great albums from Mexico, such as El Tarro de Mostaza, Kaleidoscope etc. Los Ovnis Hippies is perhaps the second rarest one right after Kaleidoscope. The band already made four LPs with cover songs for the same label. The 1968 Summer of Love and the political protest of the young rebel culture created the desire to produce a stronger album with own songs, heavier garage sounds and counter-culture lyrics. This album became something the Mexican society in 1968 was not ready for. It was too idealistic and too psychedelic to become popular and the original label released it with no promotion at all. Thats why this album became so good and so rare. Los Ovins are five musicians from Mexico City . Strong garage songs, great Spanish vocals, amazing guitars, organ and rough sounds. Like a musical punch right in the face of the Mexican middle-class society. No more nice guys." - Shadoks.

Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"Micah is a very little-known American underground rock band from the early 70s. Their music is a great blend of American hard/psychedelic rock style and British art/symphonic rock. Im Only One Man was created as a suite, each track goes into the next one, very well composed and played on an immense high standard with great Hammond organ, amazing fuzz guitars, powerful drums, driven bass lines and great vocals. This album you would expect from a major release on labels such as Epic/CBS. Micah is Gary Ohlson on organ and vocals, George Wolff on percussion and vocals, Martin Horne on lead guitar, Gus Hernandez on bass, and Bob Rowe on lead vocals. If you like the early albums of Quatermass, If, Cressida, Beggars Opera, Arcadium and Deep Purple you will love this one. It is way more sophisticated than other major label releases of the same period. This album makes the fuzz guitar aficionados happy as well as those into great Hammond sounds. Extra cool, extra heavy, extra psychedelic with a progressive touch. 500 numbered copies with insert; heavy sleeve; 180 gram pressing." -Shadoks.

Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $41.00
"Shadoks Music present a reissue of Moonlights The Edge (Modern Dance In The Twilight Zone), originally released in 1978. All the members of Moonlight came from the same town of Turku, located in the south west of Finland. They met each other at school in the mid 70s. Their ambition was more to focus on making their own music and sing in English which was not the common in Finland at the time. Kim Trapp and Anders (Andy) Winter were the actual composers and Björn (Bob) Wasenius made the lyrics. Paul Kanerva helped out with both from time-to-time. Their musical influences were Steely Dan, Procol Harum, Santana, Pink Floyd, along with Ian Dury and Blondie. They had a large scale of music they liked and listened to, playing music by Uriah Heep and Led Zeppelin before composing their own pieces. Their music was, as a result of a large scale of interest, some kind of mixture of psychedelic/progressive rock and melodic softer music. Moonlight was active between mid 70s and 1979. They got a record deal in Finland with Top Hits and released this album in 1978. For fans of Finnish bands such as Hamlet, Wigwam, Nimbus and Session. Originals are very rare. Personnel: Kim Trapp - keyboards (Hammond, Leslie, Korg, Minimoog); Björn (Bob) Wasenius - drums, vocals. Paul Kanerva - bass; Anders (Andy) Winter - guitar, vocals.

2014 release. "Shadoks Music present a reissue of Yury Morozovs Cherry Garden of Jimi Hendrix (1973). This may be the first time a western label is releasing an underground album from former USSR. Yury Morozov has sadly passed away but Shadoks worked out a release with his widow Nina for this amazing album. When Yury was asked in an interview of how many albums he recorded, the answer was 14,7 kilo (tapes). There are 45 albums by Yury and hopefully they will come out in Russia as a CD Box and Shadoks would release more. Cherry Garden is an amazing album full of effects, great songs, tons of fuzz guitar, sometimes dark and heavy, sometimes light and funny with the atmosphere of a Tarkovsky movie such as Stalker (1979) and Solaris (1972). Yury plays most of the instruments, and he actually built his gear and effects. Later on Yury recorded in London at Abbey Road Studios and became friend with many famous British musicians. Yury Morozov is an enigma of Soviet underground music. In 1973, his music was only available as tapes exchanging hands among fans since he did not match the political and musical Soviet guidelines. Cherry Garden is a surreal underground rock album which is a stand-out by International psych standards. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert.

By the end of 1969 the band got a contact with the independent record company Spectator Records in Denmark and in the summer 1970 they recorded the only album, Changes in 2 days in the Spectator Record Studio in ÿlborg, Denmark. Finally the rarest and perhaps best album on the rare Danish Spectator label. The music is strongly influenced by the Cream and other hard psychedelic guitar bands. It took us quite a while to get a deal together and we are happy now to close the final chapter of the Spectator story with this great release of Moses.

Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $42.00
"This demo-LP was discovered in 1992 and later sold for a 4-figure sum to a collector. It appeared to be a test pressing, dated 1971. Lyrically interesting, the densely layered acoustic/electric music seems merely to serve as a vehicle for the love/hate relationship of, speculatively, the male and female vocalists. Cynical, misanthropic, (with and occasional cello). It rates highly and rightly so, because the songs are well-written, well-performed, and goes from somewhat dreamy through to aggressive. Recorded at Eden studios. You can compare the music very close to Mellow Candle, one of the best underground folk albums there is, and this is as good." - Shadoks.

The guitars are razor-sharp here which sounds great next to the harder rhythms at the bottom, and the albums mix of English and Zambian lyrics. Paul Ngozi recorded at least ten albums, another one which is famous among collectors is Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family. You will love this one if you liked the Witch and Amanaz.

Soon after the release of Obus, Nimbus went through some line-up changes and a bit later the band would break up. Nimbus remained inactive for over thirty years. In 2007, they reformed for a single gig. Nimbuss music is pure vintage-sounding Finnish progressive rock and psychedelia of the early seventies, of the same level as Wigwam, Tasavallan Presidentti, or Session.

"2014 release. Shadoks Music present the first vinyl release of Nostradamuss Aquarium, recorded in the early 70s. At the end of the sixties, Vienna, Austrias capital, was a special place to live and to grow up. While young people in England and the USA had been nurturing their "love & peace" movement, Vienna was stuck in the past. The youth in particular suffered under heavy conservatism during those years. But it could not prevent three high school buddies from forming a band that became the seed of Nostradamus. They focused mainly on its own music but of course there were lots of influences by bands such as The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Who, Free and later The Flock, Gentle Giant and King Crimson. Recordings were made at the Mueller and Bronner studios. Although Nostradamus received airplay and attention at the main radio stations, their producer turned down the offer to release the album on a German label. Shadoks is presenting for the first time on LP the amazing album by Nostradamus. With Mario Bottazzi and Hansi Lang on vocals, Rudy Kronfuss on guitars, Helmut Wind on bass, Hans Kalenda on drums, Heribert Wagner on violin plus others. This recording became a lost gem, full of underground vibes and very well produced. Beside Lazarus and Novaks Kapelle, this is one of the best Austrian albums. 180 gram vinyl.

For 1969 it was recorded in Scatena studios in São Paulo with 8 channel equipment, which was the best you could get at this time. The music has sophisticated brass arrangements, very much on the same level as US bands Chicago Transit Authority, The Flock and Blood Sweat & Tears, with the charm and rhythms of Brazil exotics. If you like the album by Liverpool, this one would be for you. A real summer record, should make the stoned psychedelic listener move his hips and dance or at least nod their feet.

"Numbered edition of 500, heavy gatefold sleeve on 180 gram vinyl with 4 page insert. Originally released in Iceland, 1970. This self-titled album was the only one that Icelandic progressive rock trio Odmenn ever released. It was made at a critical point in Odmenns history when the band members had agreed to take a sabbatical year while the guitarist studied law at the University of Iceland. They got together for the last time a year after the album was released and split up directly after having played only one gig. Odmenn was formed in early 1966 by the Johannsson brothers playing the most popular music clubs in Reykjavik. Most of Odmenns music could be categorized as protest songs or social studies, touching topics like anti-war protest and fights against pollution, greed and deception balanced with more positive stances like hope for a better world with love and eternal brotherhood. Psychedelic guitar pieces had become their trademark. Odmenn recorded this double album in Copenhagen with a release late December 1970. Odmenn made a great impression with their blooming mixture of energetic blues rock and was probably one of the best progressive rock bands in Northern Europe. 15 great songs released as a double album with massive 4 page insert and many photos never shown plus long liner notes." -Shadoks

"In 1995 Rockadelic released this album on vinyl. Finally here it is with all extra tracks, photos etc. on LP again. Extra heavy psych, great guitars and vocals. This unreleased late 1960s heavy guitar-psych classic is probably (along with Cold Sun), also a previous Rockadelic LP, with widest appeal among mainstream psych fans. Despite being just 3 guys with no bass player, a dense wall of hard psychedelia is erected with moments as intense as Fraction. The opening Sea of nightmares is one of the best heavy psych tracks ever laid down, while cool remnants of teen garage and lounge/schmaltz add to the LPs underground appeal. Powerful, non-macho vocals and Jon Uzonyis triple-tracked feedback guitars makes this blow away 20th Century Zoo, Savage Resurrection, Dragonfly, etc., stunning and solid.

This album Make the Day Break was recorded live in a studio in 1974. After Norsk Suite, the music of this album takes you a step further. Four more years developing musical skills, great composition sense, and strong instrumental abilities. The title song of the album is just superb, the whole album simply stunning.

Rain was Carl Jorgen Kionig (drums), Knut Heljar Hagen (organ, piano, vocals, bass), Asmund Feidje (guitar, violin, vocals, bass). This album was recorded in 1969/1970, and beside their seven original compositions they play mind-blowing versions of A Day In The Life, Strawberry Fields Forever and Isolation.

Format: LP

Price: $40.00
"Shadoks Music present the first reissue of Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner (1977) from Scandinavias punk-psych band, Rävjunk. Hailing from Uppsala, these young musicians recorded what is now seen as a rare gem of the 70s. The bands style was quite unique: they were heavily influenced by German krautrock bands but also saw the heavy psych movement as a bright star. Some tracks on Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner are short with heavy and fuzzed-out guitars, other are ten-minute guitar jams. Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner clearly showcase the contemporary trends of the North European underground. The A-side delivers an impressive edifice of very raw punk rock and hard rock, mixed with some bluesy scales and progressive moves. The heavy drone excursions on the flip-side sound much more Teutonic with obvious krautrock allusions. Several influences are evident, but its all blended into something unique as each member brought their own intriguing ingredients into the music. Guitarist Christer Lindahl was a Hendrix freak and singer Sören G. Andersson was deeply involved in the new punk rock movement. Bassist Lars-Eric was very much into Jack Bruce and Cream, while Peter Ericsson, the drummer, was an avid fan of Can and Guru Guru. Uppsala Stadshotell Brinner is a great 70s Swedish psych album.

They recorded the album with good home equipment with no overdubs. The original album (the black album, as they called it) was only pressed 300 times and during a moment of frustration they took a box of the albums and shot them with a shotgun. So, not many left to sell. The music is first class psych rock, strong compositions, great guitars & vocals, just everything right, something you would expect from a band located in New Orleans. Southern spirit and the tough guys dont dance, they play music instead." - Shadoks.

Sacros recorded the debut LP on the state label IRT and the production was destroyed by the militaries. Only very few copies survived from destruction. The music goes in the same direction as Los Jaivas, Los Blops and El Congreso (all from Chile) and Lula Cortez from Brazil. It has a great 12 string Rickenbacker sounds, effects, great vocals and rhythms with an experimental touch. You can call this easy one of the rarest albums from Latin America since only a handful of copies survived. Patricio Panussis (guitar & vocals) Hernan Valdovinos (bass & vocals) and Tomas R.

2015 release. "Shadoks Music presents a reissue of Sepi Kuus Rannan Usvassa (1980). Until now there has been no information at all about Sepi Kuu. It wasnt even certain if Sepi Kuu was a real band. Sepi Kuu was a one-man project and the music has never been performed live. The artist kept his real identity hidden behind his alias and wants to keep it this way. It all started February-March 1980, when Maarit, the wife of the poet Mikko Tola, got in touch with Sepi Kuu and asked him if hed be interested in composing music for her husbands poems. Sepi Kuu did all the arrangements and played all the instruments, except for the bass on track six. Often the acoustic guitar was recorded first, then the other instruments: electric guitar, drums, synthesizer, flute, Indian bells and/or clay drums were added one by one. The vocal parts were always done last. The twelve songs that make up Rannan Usvassa contained influences from psychedelic to folk and oriental. Sepi Kuu said rather the psychedelic-prog-folk of the English band Comus was a big influence for him but also Pere Ubu, Suicide and Joy Division were found as influences. Rannan Usvassa is full of real stoned sounds, dreamy dark vocals, strange vibes and atmospheres, all connected to the poems of Mikko Tola. Great singing, Hawkwind-type of sounds, Parameter, Dr. Hooker, stoned, strange and spherical. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Shadoks.

They played the typical experimental rock common of the 70s but added their own touch of creativity to the music. While the majority of the lyrics were in Finnish, their music stands out compared to most progressive rock bands. Their most active time period was between 1972 and 1974 when they released two 7" singles and one album, Unikuva (1974). After disbanding in 1975, some of the members joined Elonkorjuu. But Session is rarer and as good or even better. If Charlies is the Finnish equivalent of the Cream, Session might work in the same musical style as bands such as IF and other progressive rock bands on the Vertigo label. Unikuva is a strong progressive rock album with loud guitar solos, organ, electric piano, horns and most significantly, fierce, driving bass. 180 gram vinyl.

Title: One In Versailles
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"From USA, 1975. 500 numbered LPs, heavy engraved sleeve, 180 gram pressing, 2-page insert. Shoes were formed in Zion, Illinois, in 1974 by brothers John and Jeff Murphy, and Gary Klebe. The Murphy brothers and Klebe were high school friends and decided to form a band following graduation. In the fall of 1974, Shoes was in its infancy as a band. Members Gary Klebe, John Murphy and Jeff Murphy had just completed their first official recording project, Heads or Tails, recorded in a basement on a Teac 4-channel tape machine. In college at this time, Gary was an architecture student signed up to study abroad at the campus in Versailles, France. In his absence John and Jeff decided that it would be a fitting tribute and testament to their commitment to the new band to record a new batch of songs in their newly established home base in Jeffs small rented flat (referred to as La Cabane) and dedicate it to their pal Gary. The title would be One In Versailles, in his honor. The inspiration of Versailles, France became the basis of an imaginary long-distance romance between a boy and his overseas girlfriend. Despite the limited resources, limited equipment and strained working schedule, the elemental sounding One In Versailles proved to be a crucial link in the fundamental development of the band. The initial pressing of 300 copies have become sought-after collectors items among record collectors the world over. Appearing here on vinyl for the first time since its limited, 1975 pressing, the songs of One In Versailles provide a look inside the very earliest days of the band and represent a snapshot in the development of Shoes, one of the first do-it-yourself bands to embrace and capitalize on the home-recording technologies. The Shoes have released 20 recordings over the years. Really amazing album. Not so power-pop as the others. This has an underground charm, with lots of heavy guitar, great vocals and tight song-structure. It sails in-between a great wave/pop album with a touch of Spoils Of War avant-garde underground on a rough but clear ocean." -Shadoks

Price: $15.00
"Originally released in 1968/70, and headed by Jim Cuomo , this is a follow-up album of unreleased live and studio material from The Spoils of War, previously released as a double LP. The Spoils Of War made some of the most inspiring but strange music from the 60s, in the same awe-inspiring vein as early Mothers Of Invention . This is music with a hearty intellectual background, combined with well-crafted and well-performed music in the key of Zappa . Other influences might indicate early Soft Machine ,Slap Happy ,Henry Cow and Faust . For open-minded listeners, The Spoils of War are a must: experiments with electronic sounds, compositions and performances of beautiful harmonies and songs, and all circa 1967/68. How in the world could he make music like this so early? Well, it must have been the inspiring influence of Jim Cuomos musical teacher John Cage . Even today the music of The Spoils Of War goes far beyond most other modern pop music and will be inspiring for many years from now." - Shadoks.

The songs on this concept album were created during a particularly turbulent emotional period. We think most of these songs are some of his best, and as usual, the lyrics were written with his own blood -- both metaphorically and in reality. Mick composed all songs and played all instruments, so this album was recorded sound on sound. Twelve great songs, bittersweet and very touching.

Title: The River/The Englishman
Format: Double CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"These are the last recordings of Mick Stevens, originally released in 1977 ( The River ) and 1979 ( The Englishman ), respectively. Mick Stevens arrived on the music scene and then disappeared, seemingly without anybody noticing. Two sublime, inventive, and beautifully-crafted homemade albums in the early 1970s -- See The Morning and No Savage Word -- (previously reissued by Shadoks, SHAD 038CD) were evidence of the superior songwriting and arranging skills that he possessed. Though highly personalized, the performances, the songs, the musicianship, and the painstaking (low-budget and homespun) production of these first two records gave them a sound and a feel that suggested that here was a real talent on the launch-pad of a musical career of some substance. By 1977, and with no record contract in sight, Mick took a group of musician friends into Spaceward Studios in Cambridge (England) and recorded the tracks for The River , the first CD in this 2CD collection. The dreamy vocal layers so prevalent in the earlier albums are subservient to a much harder and "rockier" sound, while Stevens electric guitar-playing is of the highest order. Since the 70s were a time of much creativity and wholly new approaches to sound, a number of musical influences can be heard in Stevens music on this particular album. The opening to the lengthy "Suite (To A Seagull)" has overtones of King Crimson or Gentle Giant , developing into a Yes -like section and a middle-eight reminiscent of early Steely Dan . The album The Englishman is self-assured, confidently and beautifully played by a bunch of first-rate musicians including Ric Sanders of Soft Machine , the Albion Band and Fairport Convention , and Michael Gregory -- whose crisp drumming patterns are a real highlight.  The track "The Englishman" is the clear apex of the album, with Stevens voice and solo acoustic guitar completely filling the audio waves in a song about an Englishman overseas. The original vinyl pressings of all Mick Stevens albums are now collectors items, all exorbitantly expensive. These songs have never sounded as good as they do on these CDs due to the care and attention of the transfer process in removing all the surface noise to be found on the original vinyl and tapes." - Shadoks.

With a touch of west coast music and lots of Mothers of Invention influences, this album is really something special. As special as The Spoils Of War and as complex as Time and Think Dog, with Frank Zappa style wah-wah guitar, great vocals, piano, effects, some horns, and a well-balanced mixture of heavy psych guitar tracks and twisted underground folk tunes. If you think the first Spoils Of War album on Shadoks is a great album and the early Mothers albums are the ones you always kept you will be very very happy with this album.

It came in a hand-laminated 10" tape box, a booklet with all the lyrics, and two 10 inch hand-cut acetates. The concept of the rock opera Tristan reminds me a lot of the two 12" acetates of Shuttah - The Image Maker Part 1+2. I am sure both albums were produced in an excellent studio with pro-musicians to help seal the deal for a release on a big label. So some promo guys out there should have some original copies. The music is electric folk with a progressive touch, much better than most albums we have heard from Britain. Male and female vocals, a wide range of instruments, great percussion and first class guitar, plus organ parts. Some songs are more acoustic, some electric.

"With the help of many music friends and a lot of patience, we could finally arrange a deal to reissue the 3 albums by the South African band The Third Eye for the first time. The original pressing came out on Polydor. Perhaps Third Eye is the best band from S.A. with the most innovative and complex music. Most music lovers would vote Freedoms Children as the biggest influence in S.A,. rock, but Third Eye will share at least half of that cake. In cooperation with Dawn Selby (Hammond organ) and her brother Ron (guitar), this project came to life again. They where based in Durban, a coastal city several hundred miles away from the recording and musical hub of Johannesburg and started playing in 1968. The first album Awakening came out in 1969 when the female organ player Dawn Selby was only 14 years old. Just imagine her age when you listen to the amazing organ and piano tracks. Awakening was released in 1969 followed by 2 more albums Searching and Brother just one year later in 1970. What a musical output in such a short time. The band and composer must have sat on a volcano where they just waited to burst their music out onto the rock universe. Awakening is the most complex album of the three, with great brass arrangements, piano, Hammond organ, fuzz-guitar and vocals full of soul. Musically going in the direction of bands such as Electric Flag, The Flocks Dinosaur Swamps, Chicago, The Nice and Al Cooper. Pure electric underground of the best sort." -Shadoks

We must mention here the amazing drumming and bass which holds the complete tracks together and drives them forwards. As a musical comparison we would mention again the bands from the US and UK underground, such as Electric Flag, Chicago and Keef Hartley Band. But we must say, if bands from South Africa were not banned in Europe and the USA at the time the albums by The Third Eye came out, they would have become as popular and even more as the mentioned bands from USA and UK.

It was recorded in Nigeria in 1977 and originally released on EMI, same as the great album BLO - Chapter One. This Nigerian rock-psych band Tirogo is similar to bands such as Ofege, BLO, Founders 15, Doves, and Aktion. Great African songs covered with wild guitar solos, spooky organ, great beats and strong vocals. 4 guys on the cover / 6 were actually in the band looking pretty young. It is getting harder and harder to find lost African bands since there is a big rave in the International music scene to hunt for good material. With the massive help of collectors and Now Again Records in the USA, who actually went to Nigeria to sign the boys, we are able to present this amazing album to you. It will suit the same music lovers who like Amanaz, The Witch, Question Mark and BLO." -Shadoks

Title: Trúbrot
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $48.00
Numbered edition of 500, heavy gatefold sleeve on 180 gram vinyl with 2 page insert. "Trúbrot was the first supergroup ever founded in Iceland. It was created in May 1969 when leading members of Hljómar (Sounds) and Flowers set out to create the finest Icelandic rock group of all time. Guitarist and composer Gunnar Thórgarson, bass player and singer Rúnar Júlíusson and lead vocalist Shady Owens of Hljómar had been plotting this for some months, along with organist Karl Sighvatsson and drummer Gunnar Jökull Hákonarson of Flowers, before the bands genesis was announced publicly. These were troubled times and Trúbrot had countless hurdles to overcome before the band eventually fell apart early in 1973. After the debut album was released in December 1969 by EMI, vocalist Shady Owens announced that she was quitting. Trúbrot recorded 3 more albums. Tony Branwell of Apple Records was saying these were one of the two best bands he had seen perform on stage in the preceding six months. Really cool underground album full of musical ideas and well-crafted music, male & female vocals. The music should hit the same listener of UK bands such as Blossom Toes, Billy Nichols; underground with a touch of pop." - Shadoks.

Title: Undir Áhrifum
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $48.00
"Originally released in Iceland, 1970. Numbered edition of 500 pressed on 180 gram vinyl, housed in a heavy gatefold sleeve with a double-sided insert. "In 1969, Trúbrot was the first supergroup ever founded in Iceland. After the début album with vocalist Shady Owens, this is the second album released in 1970 without Shady on vocals. After a last concert in Iceland with the original line up, they invited Led Zeppelin and became friends with Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. When Jimmy and Robert returned to their hotel at four oclock in the morning they were amazed to discover that the sun was still shining bright. The sight of the midnight sun, the snow-capped glaciers and the Icelandic geysers apparently inspired them to write The Immigrant Song for the third Led Zeppelin album. Trúbrot was very much influenced by the electric music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young by Led Zeppelin and Keith Emerson. Trúbrot went to London to have Orange amplifiers custom-made for the band, and to Copenhagen to record Undir Áhrifum at the Wifoss Studio. The album became the best album of 1970. Really amazing male English vocals, great arrangements, guitars, organ. Psychedelic/progressive rock of the best kind strongly influenced by British underground. Trúbrot recorded 2 more albums which will be released on Shadoks, too. Tony Branwell of Apple Records was saying these were one of the two best bands he had seen perform on stage in the preceding six months." - Shadoks.

Title: LSD Bacro
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $44.00
"500 numbered copies. 180 gram vinyl in a heavy sleeve with insert. It may be possible that, until this release, that these three names do not sound familiar to lovers of South American underground music, but for any fan of good Venezuelan hard psych rock of the 60s and 70´s, Bacro, Tsee Mud, and LSD are really special bands and well known. Beside the other great album from Venezuela, Ladies WC, this release is as good and as important. The band has only released a couple of singles and played a lot of great live concerts. Those bands from José Romero on guitar changed names from LSD to Tsee Mud and to Bacro. In-between those bands, José lived in USA and was part of the band The Del-Vikings, which included a concert at the Madison Square Garden. José went back to Venezuela and continued playing with his band Bacro. All those tracks presented on this album here are extra strong and heavy psychedelic with amazing fuzz guitar and vocals and lots of acid moves. A really wild album all the way." -Shadoks.

400 numbered copies on 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy red-velvet sleeve with engraved artwork and insert. "Local New Jersey demo release (200 made), beyond rare fantastic concept psych beauty, maybe five or six known copies; three girls, one guy. They tried to get attention from big labels but this never happened. They wanted him to sound like Blood Sweat & Tears. But this was not Gregs idea of music. The music has everything you need, like a wild version of early Moby Grape combined with New Dawn and C.A. Quintet, sometimes dreamy sometimes totally wild underground-psych, with female vocals and splattering leads, Titanic horns and distorted guitars. Sweet tunes turn into dark psych power. Totally stoned. A previous Little Indian release, but this time with insert, three bonus tracks, and many pictures." -Shadoks.

A 500-copy limited-edition CD, also in red velvet, was sold out in a few months. Besides Jungle , this album is a famous Little Indian release. If you like Moby Grape you should check this one out. The album has remained unreleased until a few years ago.." - Shadoks.

Title: Ten Light Claps And A Scream
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $46.00
"South Africa, 1971. It was the worst of times in Johannesburg white suburbs. The Beatles were banned on state radio. Haircut regulations were merciless. Life was an unutterable hell of boredom and conformity, but lo: salvation awaited. They came from the north in the summer of 69, armed with axes and scarabs, long hair streaming behind them, and proceeded to slay the youth of the nation with an arsenal of murderous rock tunes. They were the biggest thing our small world had ever seen, our Led Zeppelin, our Black Sabbath, maybe even our Rolling Stones. They were Otis Waygood. After two albums released on EMI S.A. the album Ten Light Claps And A Scream was simply the best Otis Waygood record and among collectors the most sought after. The music is influenced by the British underground for sure. Bloodwin Pig, Steamhammer, IF are working in the same field. Great guitars and vocals, blues influenced underground rock, sax, organs and well crafted composition and arrangements making this album a unique masterpiece. Julian Laxton of Freedoms Children was the producer. Rob Zipper- vocals, guitars, saxophones; Ivor Rubenstein- vocals, percussion; Leigh Sagar- guitars, organ, Hawaiian guitar; Benny Miller- guitars; Alan Zipper- bass. 600 numbered LPs, glossy heavy sleeve, 180 gram pressing." -Shadoks

Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $40.00
2015 release. "Shadoks Music present the never before released White Light self-titled album, recorded in 1976. White Light was a progressive-rock group originally from New Orleans, then later from Austin, Texas, USA, where the group once recorded with Sonobeat Records (Mariani, Wildfire). White Light was comprised of Mike Hobren (guitars and vocals) Rob Haeuser (bass and synthesizers) and Rusty Haeuser (percussion and flute). On White Lights self-titled album, fans of mid-70s progressive rock will be treated to a real romp of experimental music that utilizes a host of instrumentation and special effects. The groups music is powerfully expressed on the track "Pacemaker". Mike Hobren employed a diverse range of styles and techniques on the guitar, including the use of a cello bow on the introduction to the track "Stargazer". Rob Haeusers bass grounded the music perfectly, and his synthesizer work was, at times, haunting. Rusty Haeuser provided well-rounded percussion to inject a powerful rhythm line into the music. White Light was heavily influenced by progressive groups like Yes, Pink Floyd and Weather Report, to name a few but with a fresh twist of their own. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Shadoks.

"Reissue of this private press psych LP from the USA, originally issued in 1970. Heavy glossy gatefold sleeve, 450 numbered copies. "One of the best from the USA, legit reissue with insert, many photos, extensive liner notes, posters, from master tapes, a killer guitar album. I was searching for an original LP for many many years but never saw one. Even the band has no extra copies. California trio Wildfire came to Austin in 1969. They shared the stage with many performers such as Johnny Winter, Allman Brothers, Freddy King, Shivas Headband and many more. After laying down partial tracks at the Beach Boys recording studios (Wildfire guitarist Randy Love is Beach Boy Mike Loves cousin) the trio ended up at Sonobeat Studios to record this 8-track album. Sonobeat became famous for the recording of the first Johnny Winter album, Dark Shadow/Cold Sun and Mariani. This album is extra heavy psychedelic rock with dual vocals, great stereo effects, all original songs in Moby Grape/Blue Cheer direction. They use to be one of the loudest bands around on their custom build Quilter amps. For the first time officially released direct from copies of the master tapes." - Shadoks.

Artist: WRITING ON THE WALL
Title: The Rockfield Sessions
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $40.00
2015 release. "Shadoks Music presents Writing On The Walls The Rockfield Sessions, recorded in 1973. Writing On The Wall were a Scottish psychedelic/progressive rock band from active 1967 to 1973. Continually on the road for six years - everything from radio, TV, British & European tours - Writing On The Wall were one of the very few bands to have held two residencies at the famous Marquee Club in London. The band issued only one official studio album, The Power of the Picts (1969). Like many evolving groups caught in the midst of rapid musical evolution in the late sixties, Writing On The Wall retained much of the blues influence which they mixed with a heavy and sometimes uneven blend of psych. They had idealistic and often abstract lyrics reminiscent of groups like Blues Image, Cactus and Babe Ruth. Writings music tended toward a more somber tone than most of their peers, and the band further distinguished themselves by relocating to England to make somewhat of an impression on the British scene of that day. The band recorded for DJ John Peel in late 1968, and released their sole album on Brian Waldmans fledging Middle Earth label. Waldman also served as the bands manager, and secured them gigs in his club, also named Middle Earth. The Rockfield Session where recorded in 1973 with a new guitarist/singer and saxophone player. Jimmy Hush, the original Writing On The Wall drummer, located the master tapes and mixed them for the first time. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy velvet textured sleeve. Includes a two-page insert with a story by Jimmy Hush. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Shadoks.
