Artist: ATHANOR
Title: Flashback
Format: CD
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
"Chicago, early 70s. Greg Herriges is obsessed with Lennon, 12-string guitars, and far-out psychedelic sounds. Rick Vittenson is a Beach Boys-Hollies-Who fanatic who writes for Crawdaddy! magazine. Both had previously played in several garage college bands during the 60s. Combining their mutual love for 60s music, Athanor was born. With the help of top studio musicians, they recorded and self-released three 45s between 1973 and 1975 (the first one produced by Mark Breyer, with whom Rick had played in pre-Skooshny band Brevity) which are now highly sought-after by fans of obscure psychedelic pop. All of them are featured here in stellar sound taken from the master tapes along with previously-unreleased studio tracks and superb-sounding home demos (1973-1981), plus a new song recorded in 2006 in the same vein as their vintage recordings. Athanors music features impressive songwriting and musicianship, a collision of Beatlesque harmony vocals, Rickenbacker and Guild 12-string guitars, occasional fuzz-wah leads, Fender Rhodes, and studio effects. Psychedelic proto power-pop highly recommended to anyone into Lazy Smoke, Badfinger, Only Ones, Emitt Rhodes, Rockin Horse, or Creme Soda. Remastered sound from the original master tapes, booklet with rare pictures and liner notes by Mark Breyer from cult psych power-pop band, Skooshny." -Guerssen.

Title: Inside Out: The Demos 1973-1977
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $27.00
"The follow-up to the acclaimed Flashback (GUESS 046CD/110LP) finds Athanor (the duo formed by Greg Herriges and Rick Vittenson) digging deeper into their archives and coming out with an amazing set of previously-unreleased recordings, done at their state-of-the-art home studio back at the time. Captivating Beatles-esque, fuzzed-out psychedelia and folk-rock full of Lennon-esque vocals and 12-string Rickenbackers by this 70s Chicago wunderkind duo. 1973-1977 recordings plus one 70s-era track cut in 2014 with Jeff Murphy (Shoes) on back-up vocals. Basement psych-pop and proto-power pop has rarely sounded better. Remastered sound from the original tapes. Includes an insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things/Got Kinda Lost) and Jeff Murphy (Shoes)." - Guerssen.
