Artist: AKA
Title: Hard Beat
Format: Double LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"First anthology from Indonesias heaviest psychedelic and progressive funk rock group. AKA featured on Now Agains Those Shocking Shaking Days compilation (2011). Originating from Indonesias second largest city, Surabaya, East Java, AKA is an acronym of Apotik Kali Asin. Starting off their careers as an infamous local band with notorious crowd pleasing antics, AKA regularly went through repertoires of Steppenwolf, Grand Funk Railroad, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Three Dog Night before finding a significant audience outside their home city. It was soon after that the band signed with a Jakarta based label, Indra Records that they started producing a steady release of albums, including 11 studio LPs and a couple of compilations. The lead singer Ucok Harahap - who famously idolizes James Brown- is perhaps the most notorious rock performer in Indonesias pop history, infamous for brandishing (amongst others) coffins, whips and stripping naked on stage during performances. Sadly due to recording English based, heavy psychedelic/progressive funk, AKAs music failed to gain popularity at the time of its release. Today, AKA is recognized as one of Indonesias top rock bands of all time, and for good reason. With this release, we are proud to offer an Anthology encompassing AKAs heaviest & funkiest moments."- Strawberry Rain.

Artist: BLIND OWL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"One of the rarest Canadian private press records ever made at 100 copies, with five stars in Pokora and little information in Acid Archives. Recorded at a home in Etobicoke, Ontario, this three man formation used a reel to reel to create this sole album only meant for friends and people who attended the few shows they performed. Not the best pressing, but we were lucky to get the tape to allow us to improve on the original pressing slightly. Recorded in their home, this folk rock album has good song writing and has a nice charm. All original material with no cover songs and Canadian based lyrics like "Nova Scotia Morning" (although the entire band was from Ontario), this is an album you wont find anytime soon, if ever." - Strawberry Rain.

Artist: BLO
Title: Phase II
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Reissue of one of the most famous afro rock albums from Nigeria, Blos second offering Phase II is long overdue for a re-release. A blend of funky rhythms, quality song writing, and psychedelic guitars can be heard with consistency from start to end. No weak moments! Remastered with incredible sound from the original tapes, even owners of an original LP copy should pick this up! For fans of Ofege, SJOB, and other African acts. Remastered from the original reels. Comes in a paste-on sleeve and includes a copy of the original insert and artwork." -Strawberry Rain.

Artist: CARAVAN
Title: Man & Buffalo
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $35.00
"Gatefold LP version with full color insert. Reissue of one of the rarest and most sought after releases from the Thai scene. Having been rated six stars by Hans Pokora (well deserved as this LP consistently sells for four figures locally in Thailand), this has become near impossible to source, even in its native county as many copies were destroyed over the years. A part of the Student Movement in Thailand, Caravan was forced into exile after the Thammasat University incident. As some of the founders of the Songs for Life genre, the music contained on this album helped bridge the gap between the farmers and students, which in turn changed the political and social landscape of Thailand to this day. Arguably one of the most important albums ever released in South East Asia, this is not only a beautiful slab of ethnic folk rock, but has become a landmark in Thai history." -Strawberry Rain.

Artist: JONES, SIMON
Title: Melanie & Me
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
"Melanie & Me was a promotional tool used for a movie shot by director Chris Fitchett in Australia in 1975. Pressed in an edition of 100 copies, it was handed out to people who partook in the film, and who attended the only screening to date in Sydney. Used as the background music for the entire movie, this was actually the second version of the soundtrack, recorded last minute by Simon Jones as Chris wasnt happy with the original. The result had become one of the most sought after releases from the Aussie scene, and one of the most obscure records from the region as well. Beautiful psychedelic folk rock with a combination of male and female vocals, fuzz guitars and organ solos, this wont disappoint. Housed in paste on sleeve with photo insert." -Strawberry Rain.

Artist: KELOMPOK KAMPUNGEN
Title: Mencari Tuhan
Format: CD
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"One of the true gems of the Indonesian scene, this album stands to be one of the best, and also one of the most unique albums to come from the region. Banned by the Shuko government soon after release, it remains somewhat obscure to most collectors up until now. An album created by Bram Makahekum (who had no musical experience or training at all) Kelompok Kumpangan had multiple members trying to recreate the sounds of nature, even using original handmade instruments invented by the band themselves. The end result is nothing short of brilliant, one of our personal favorites from the region and an album that cant be compared to much else. Wonderful progressive folk of the highest caliber, we cant stand behind this one enough." -Strawberry Rain.

Artist: LAU, LEONG
Title: Dragon Man
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Leong Lau has remained something of an anomaly in the record collecting scene. A fantastic LP loaded with wah guitar, fuzz solos, flute solos, and wild vocals. A truly impressive offering, its amazing that an album of this quality still remains unknown to so many collectors and dealers. Extremely rare and hardly ever available (even in Australia where it was made), we are proud to finally bring this one to the world with Leongs full approval. Includes poster insert." -Strawberry Rain.

Artist: RICTUS
Title: Christelle ou la decouverte du mal
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $33.00
"LP version in a high quality paste-on cover with insert with photos and band notes. "Christelle is a 6 year old girl. She is happy. One day she meets an evil genius who makes her have bad hallucinations. Each song is one of her hallucinations. Reissue of a rare, 250 copy private press progressive rock album from France, rated five stars in the Pokora Books. Recorded on a four track Akai in the small town of Luxueil-les-Bains, this album was only sold at a few shows and in one local shop. Pressed at the small Le Kiosque DOrphee pressing plant, this was truly a private offering with the band having made and glued the covers themselves. A long album, including the 14+ minute progressive gem Theme Guerre, the music spans from lo-fi fuzz laden numbers to strong progressive songs with numerous bridges and changes. Conceptually a rock opera, but plays like a full length progressive album that could rival anything from France at the time. Remastered with wonderful sound quality, this is sure to open the ears of many whove overlooked the band until now." -Strawberry Rain.

Artist: SALTY DOG
Title: Salty Dog
Format: LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: Spain
Price: $32.00
"Having formed during the height of the Zamrock period, Salty Dog was a three man band modeled after the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Wanting to base the band around the concept of the force of life, Salty Dog was chosen for the bands name because it is a slang term for sperm. The eighth release on the Zambezi imprint,Salty Dog is one of the most obscure Zambian titles from the era having failed to achieve the success of some of their peers like Witch. The self-titled release is a combination of psychedelic rock, blues, and folk, with all English songs. Really good from start to end, essential for collectors of African rock and insanely rare as an original. Comes with a 7" of the non-LP single that was released before the album titled Sunday Morning Sunshine." - Strawberry Rain.
