Artist: CHARLIES
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.

Title: Jail Sessions
Format: LP
Label: Shadoks
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. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a printed inner sleeve, a four-page insert and an A2 poster. Edition of 500 (numbered)." - Shadoks.

Title: Musiikkia Elokuvasta Julisteiden Liimaajat
Format: CD
Label: Shadoks
Country: Germany
Price: $18.00
"One of the most influential bands from Finland are Charlies. They recorded their second album Buttocks in 1970 and also that same year, this first album. Shadoks has included six bonus tracks on this release, including their rare single from 1969. The album was recorded for an underground movie of the same title, and Charlies had full artistic freedom to create psychedelic songs and effects. 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. Dave Lindholm wrote: "Charlies was the first big Finnish rock band for me. They played loud & rough. They looked like men, not popstars. They played the music I love. Could I ask for more? Well, I didnt!" - Shadoks.
