Artist: BEAT OF THE EARTH
Title: S/T
Format: CD
Label: Stoned Circle
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"After being discovered by fans of 60s underground psychedelia in the late 1980s, the sole self-titled 1967 album by Orange County band Beat Of The Earth has grown into a classic within the field, in spite of its rarity. The improvisational music on the album cannot be easily categorized, but most would agree that it represents a unique link between mid-1960s California and the droning acid rock of the later era. From a preternatural surf-era 45 and a local b-movie soundtrack, Phil Pearlmans ascent (or descent) presents a fascinating slice of music history for anyone to chew on. Unbeknown to Pearlman and friends, they had unleashed a primal head record that astounds still. Recorded in 1967 in Hollywood with legendary producer Jim Sidore, Beat Of The Earths legacy remains as fresh and inventive today as it did in 1967. Stoned Circle proudly presents a collision of vision and artistry. Professionally re-mastered original sound recording with expansive liners, interviews and rare archival photos.” - Stoned Circle.

Artist: LELAND
Title: A Self-Taught, Decathlon Hard Rock Musician
Format: CD
Label: Stoned Circle
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"Since the release of Leland Yoshitsus eponymous self-financed debut vinyl outing in 1976, interest in his recordings has stirred and grown on a worldwide scale. A long-out-of-print reissue of his super-rare debut album from 1976 appeared on Contempt records in 1978, titled This Is My World with the accompanying text "A Self-Taught, Decathlon, Hard Rock Musician," a profound statement that earns its place as the title to this retrospective edition of the multi-instrumentalists work. This expanded reissue, the first since the 1978 release, includes the caped-crusading psychedelic pioneers self-titled debut plus his 1979 follow-up, Live At Mabuhay Gardens, S.F. Digitally remastered; includes background liners and rare archival photos." - Stoned Circle.

Artist: LUCIFER
Title: Dance with the Devil
Format: Double CD
Label: Stoned Circle
Country: UK
Price: $24.00
"From the dark abyss of British underground rock comes the near-mythological Lucifer. The anarchist antichrist has remained an enigma since his recordings appeared in the underground press in 1971. It was not until the 1990s that the true identity of Lucifer was revealed as filmmaker, musician, and all-around electronics whiz-kid Denys Irving, a close friend of the enigmatic Howard Marks, with whom he attended the University of Oxford in the late 60s. Irvings short films have now been salvaged, restored, and appraised, to help celebrate the work of a truly inspired and iconic genius. Dance with the Devil contains all of Irvings known Lucifer recordings, combining his all of his privately-pressed rarities for the first time. The debut Lucifer album, Big Gun, was originally released in 1972 and the ultra-rare second work, soundtrack album Exit, followed later that year. Dance with the Devil also collects the four Lucifer singles, originally released between 1971 and 73. This edition also boasts original artwork, numerous pieces of rare archival memorabilia and photos, and a detailed account of the man behind the music. For lovers of demonic rock, early electronica, or plain fuzz-driven proto-punk, this is a unique opportunity to sample the devil at work. Professionally remastered original recordings." - Stoned Circle.

Artist: ONE
Title: Come
Format: CD
Label: Stoned Circle
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"The bare principles of unparalleled hippie euphoria; a climax of communal head-sounds with disturbing Indian vibes in a deranged marriage of ambient absurdity and financial hallucinations. Spearheaded by Reality D. Blipcrotch, this San Francisco bunch of longhairs and friends of Jefferson Airplane realized their potent raga potential in 1972 with the extraordinary debut album Come. Exploding B-sides, whistling teapots, and pop-up marijuana leaves only form half the story... welcome to the world of 1. Digitally remastered from the original recording; includes informative background liners and rare archival photos." - Stoned Circle.

Artist: PURPLE IMAGE
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Stoned Circle
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
“Clevelands Purple Image faced an uphill climb in an era and country that expected "negro" music from its "negroes": In a Hendrix landscape, young, black bands had slowly started to emerge from the soul neighborhoods and R&B backdrop. Purple Image traded on a thumping, harder-than-Parliament psychedelic noise fortified by powerful group vocals and the twin guitar attack of Ken Roberts and Frank Smith. Aside from their singles and super rare album, they managed only a few profile gigs with the likes of Steppenwolf and Country Joe as a local support act. However, along with bands such as Black Merda, Fugi, Pure Hell and Death, Purple Image would inevitably lay the foundations for future black crossover acts such as Fishbone, Bad Brains, Living Colour. Stoned Circle proudly presents the intoxicating head sounds of Clevelands psychedelic upstarts. Equipped with the essential period quota of fuzz, wah-wah and organ, their sound could best be described as: "purple with yellow flashes". Professionally re-mastered original sound recording with expansive liners and rare archival photos.” - Stoned Circle.

Artist: V/A
Title: First Chips
Format: CD
Label: Stoned Circle
Country: UK
Price: $18.00
"At a time when musical shifts were almost a daily routine in the immediate aftermath of the 1960s, multi-instrumentalist Vyto Beleska decided to trawl through the archives of his own Clay Pigeon studios, based in Chicagos South Side. Assembled here are past recording projects that utilized some of Chicagos finest underground musicians, whose collaborations with Beleska reveal another chapter in the annals of psychedelia and garage. To mark the early work of Beleska and Clay Pigeon Studios, a privately pressed album was issued in 1972 in a quantity of 500 copies. Circulated locally, the Clay Pigeon recordings were sadly never acknowledged on a national or worldwide level. The time has come to give wider recognition to the inspiring and awesome sounds that came from these musicians. This is the first legitimate reissue of this retrospective look at one of Chicagos finest unsung musical innovators whose early recorded legacy boasts more fuzz, feedback, and psychedelic mayhem than any true 60s rock fan could desire. Digitally remastered from the original recording; includes detailed background liners and rare archival photographs." - Stoned Circle.
