Artist: DRAGONWYCK
Title: Chapter 2
Format: LP & 7
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $45.00
"This release is the second of World In Sounds Dragonwyck trilogy. The group from Cleveland was one of the most promising bands from the early 70s in that area. After their first legendary 1970 heavy-psych album, the keyboardist changed, and the band left their garage-y Doors influences to create their own sound. The music on these well produced stereo-recordings exists only on acetate (5 copies), and drifted more into the British vein of progressive rock, like King Crimson, Pink Floyd or Yes, but also reflects US-Westcoast feeling like Its a Beautiful Day. By 1972 Dragonwyck was performing Moody Blues complete Days of Future Passed live onstage, which turned out extremely well, so this is for sure the strongest note youll recognize. The 10 original cuts are intense and very unique with strong melodies/vocals, heavy guitar solos and an extreme variety of keyboard and vocal sounds -- an awesome mix of heavy underground rock with classical chamber-music style/elements. Included youll find a bonus 45 record (with pic. sleeve) which was released in 1974, also a poster with a bio, authentic press-releases and cool photos, remastered from the original mastertapes -- one of the finest unreleased American progressive-psychedelic hippie-art rock-albums -- truly a masterpiece in originality, creativity and musicianship!" - World In Sound.

Artist: FEAR ITSELF
Title: Fear Itself
Format: LP
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
LP version, full color gatefold sleeve. "The album was originally released in 1969 on Dot-Records but didnt receive too much attention - maybe it appeared as a too freaked out heavy version of Jefferson Airplane or Big Brother & the Holding Co. The group started back in Atlanta Georgia in 1967 as a quartet with two guitars and played true psychedelic sound, recorded at the Record Plant in NYC, and moved to Woodstock (NY). The 10 album tracks contain two arrangements of traditional tunes all others are originals reflecting true electric heavy blues with a strong Hendrix feel, duelling guitar work and an outstanding female voice/vocals/screams...lots of intense stereo effects. This release is issued with stunning sound quality from the masters. For all 60s collectors who are not familiar with this masterpiece - its a must - there are not many groups that were able to present the freewheelin live on stage feeling on their studio album!" - World In Sound.

Artist: FREEMAN SOUND & FRIENDS
Title: Heavy Trip
Format: CD
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"World In Sound presents another group that represents the late 60s, early 70s heavy psychedelic era scene in northeast Ohio, USA (the same region that Dragonwyck is from). Having won the Starshine Productions Battle of the Bands in 1970, the five-member Freeman Sound was established as the most popular of several bands (including Morly Grey), that had records released on the Starshine label. This special collection of original songs and sounds is an exciting bit of rock history that documents some of the charm, wit and depth of talent that made Freeman Sound the special local phenomenon they were. This release includes 12 great, quality tracks with bio and photos. Youll get stoned on some mind-bending vocals backed by instrumentation that includes some very intense, heavy fuzz and wah pedal guitar sounds, solid drums and a screaming organ (with flashes of famous British groups such as Spooky Tooth). Prepare to get off on cuts like the 17 minute Heavy Trip #70, the Hendrix-like Tomorrow Is Plastic and what we would venture to say is the heaviest version of Merle Travis 16 Tons ever recorded. This band broke up before they were able to make the most of their popularity. With this previously unreleased album, they may be taking up where they left off. For fans of intelligently executed psychedelic hard rock and pop with a message." - World In Sound.

Artist: HAMANA
Title: Hamana
Format: LP
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $38.00
"Hamanas debut album recorded in 1974, was issued on the local Phoenix label, Canyon Records. To most of the 60s psychedelic rock/folk fans this is almost an unknown album, original pressings seem to have disappeared, only a few copies are known in collectors hands. Bruce Hamana, a native American, is a member of the Indian Hopi Tribe and went in 1969 to college near San Francisco to live in the white mans world. Instead of traditional native American themes he felt like writing modern, revolutionary, contemporary music -- the result you hear on this album is powerful and melodic, and expresses perfectly the sunny California peace, love & freedom feeling, but also contains a social-critical message.One of these days everything is gonna change, things you take for granted will be taken away from you. The music itself is emotive with strong vocals, lots of Westcoast psychedelic guitar flashes, a bit garage feeling but also loner folk style with native American elements. The appeal of this album reminds of Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Byrds, X.I.T, Neil Young, Buffalo Springfield, Garrett Lund. Near unbelievable that on these recordings all instruments, bass, guitars, vocals and drums have been played by Hamana himself, to get overdubbed and to become finally a tasty and atmospheric stereo acoustic/electric mix." - World In Sound.

Artist: ID, THE
Title: The Inner Sounds of the Id
Format: Double LP
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $32.00
"The Inner Sounds of the Id album features rock music with Oriental influences, played in various time signatures like 17/8, 20/8, and 7/4 time, as well as straight-ahead blues/rock in 4/4 time. You will hear the rock and roll roots drifting into garage, beat, psychedelic and progressive sounds - powerful and unique - far ahead of its time. The title track, longer than 10 minutes, you will never forget. It is an excursion, introducing the upcoming hypnotic beat and psychedelic sound. A cosmic sitar and meditative vocals intensify the mystical and floating vibrations of music, coming from the Ids inner space. The Beatles with Sgt. Pepper, and also the Rolling Stones with Their Satanic Majesties Request went, little later than The Id, into similar directions. This well-produced stereo 2LP set contains extended musician information, (a second LP) contains 10 bonus tracks with outtakes from the album recording sessions. This is an ultimately rewarding listening experience on the highest level of creativity and musicianship." - World In Sound.
SOLD OUT

Artist: JAMES, MICHAEL
Title: Runaway World
Format: CD
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"This album is a great artifact for all 60s and 70s music collectors, original copies in good condition change hands for about 500 U.S. dollars. The spirit of the music is a tasty combination between aggressive fuzz-garage-hard rock and atmospheric psych-folk with moody vocals and a poetic message, comparable to World In Sounds legendary Phantasia or Dr. Hooker. In between perfectly arranged songs like You Dont Walk On My Street, I Remember and the psych-trip Sleepers, youll hear weird spoken word themes as Guatamalan Strange, Electronic Silver and heavy-riff instrumentals. This was the debut release by Michael James, who is still active in the music business with his own label, Empath Records, and the groups Children of the Risk, Michael Yonkers and Mounting Santa feat. Dr. Fink of Princes Revolution, which are 4 bonus tracks on this release. The album Runaway World was recorded and produced extremely well. This CD-reissue is produced from the original analog master tapes with a 12 p. booklet and 5 bonus tracks, almost 70 minutes playing time. So, look forward to this great album by a unique rock artist like none youve heard!" - World In Sound.

Artist: MODULO 1000
Title: Nao Fale Com Paredes
Format: CD
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Modulo 1000 is one of Brasils famous progressive rock bands of the early 1970s, their only album became legendary in the collectors scene, as one of the best South American records of all times, besides Laghonia, Emiliano Zapata, Psiglo, Opus Alfa. As Luiz Simas (organ) remembers: "The music of Modulo 1000 had its own appeal to an audience that wanted a heavy, raw, experimental, psychedelic sound. Our kind of music did not make it to the radio stations. It was too wild. The distribution of the record was done in a very limited way. The record label directors, which probably didnt understand or even didnt like our music, did zero promotion for the LP." This CD-issue contains 8 bonus tracks and comes with the original cover artwork, an outstanding psychedelic painting, presented in a triple fold hardcover (as Mystic Siva) plus a 16 page booklet with, bio and lots of photos. Highly recommended because of its individual and intense progressive sound." - World In Sound.

Format: LP
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00

The groups included are: Blackrock, Sound Machine, Yesterdays Obsession, Mastermind, Sangre Mexicana, Bhagavad Gita, Protein Bros, Purple Canteen, Los Nuevos Shains, Blow Mind and the A & B-side of legendary Dirty Filthy Mud.

Artist: WAZOO
Title: Wazoo
Format: CD
Label: World In Sound
Country: Germany
Price: $19.00
"This group from the Detroit area is probably the weirdest experimental psych outfits from 1970. Originally the band was hired by Zig Zag Records to record cover tunes and easy listening, with the intention, Were just doing whatever we want, the result was an overdosed rock concept album... to give the music back to the people. Original copies are rare and pretty unknown among psych collectors until now! The 7 songs with an average length of 7 minutes combine different styles of music, from heavy garage rock to bluesy West Coast, drifting into various tripped-out, funk, jazz elements with humorous/social comments. Structure, feeling and complexity can be compared to experimental Krautrock, while the groups basic sound is represented better by end-60s U.S. hippie rock as Country Joe & The Fish, Grateful Dead or The Head Shop with its excessive fuzz guitar work, Farfisa organ, amazing vocals by Clevelands Bocky and several additional instruments, sax, harpsichord, cello, percussion, bells. Studio work is pretty tricky, lots of unexpected mixing and experiments, with flashes of UKs legendary White Noise. This CD issue contains a 12 p. color booklet with a bands bio, and the cool original album design, made by John Williams who also worked for Zappa -- so it can be assumed which influences Zappa used for his 1972, Grand Wazoo album?!? Wazoo presents at the highest level of musicianship free & atmospheric rock -- a unique kind of musical renaissance! -- Discover it, its a unique piece of early 70s psychedelia." - World In Sound.
