Artist: WILSON, GARY
Title: You Think You Really Know Me
Format: LP
Label: Cry Baby
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"In 1977, a 24-year-old musician from Endicott, N.Y., released a wonderful, odd album called "You Think You Really Know Me." Combining elements of pop, proto new wave, jazz, avant-garde composition and electronic music, Gary Wilson delivered sincere lyrics, alternately sweet and angst ridden, about the women in his life and his fantasies..." - Neil Strauss, NY Times. 90s reissue.

Artist: WILSON, GARY
Title: Forgotten Lovers
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"First vinyl issue of this collection of rare and unreleased material by one of the most iconoclastic musicians produced by the 1970s. Gary Wilsons 1977 LP, You Think You Really Know Me, is a classic of alternate-universe lounge-wave, and has been cited as choice by everyone from The Residents to Beck Hansen. Forgotten Lovers includes unreleased studio tracks from the same period, subsequent singles tracks, as well as samples of Wilsons pre-You Think You Really Know Me records (a single and an album) which were more in a porn-soundtrack/jazz-funk vein. Gary has reanimated his career in the last decade, and we raise our hats to him for doing so, but this early stuff is really the donkeys eyelids. A classic bizzaro-world blend of various "real people" elements and explosive new wave dynamics. As rich as butter, youll want to spread this music on your torso to promote tanning."- Feeding Tube.

Artist: WILSON, GARY
Title: Lisa Wants To Talk To You
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
"Vinyl actualization of a Gary Wilson album originally released on CD in 2008. The second of Feeding Tubes Wilson retrievals (following 2011s Forgotten Lovers, FTR 065LP), the label considers this the most solid of Garys post-revival albums. While it goes in a slightly different musical direction than the deranged porn-lounge inventions of You Think You Really Know Me (the classic 77 LP, heisted in toto by Beck during his Odelay phase), the naif-ache of the lyrics and the musics laid-back bowling-alley-funk-thrust reveal unending vistas of pure pleasure. Wilsons vision and performance approach are absolutely personal and shockingly naked. Like other true outsider artists (from the Shaggs to Daniel Johnston), its possible to sometimes wonder what the hell Gary is up to, but the raw sincerity of his yearning is never at doubt. As with all his best work, Lisa Wants to Talk to You is about women. How they walk, how they sound, how they smell, how they can break your goddamn heart. A fellow and/or a gal could learn a lot by dancing quietly alone in the dark to this record. Saved from the digital graveyard by your friends at Feeding Tube, its time to prepare yourself for another small miracle. So do it. Limited edition of 500, with a dazzling cover by Ted Lee. Includes mp3 download code." -Feeding Tube.

Title: Music for Piano
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
Edition of 500. "Although it might sound perverse to say so, Music for Piano may well be my favorite Gary Wilson record. Most people who dig Wilson are very into his lyrics, but I actually find them to be a bit taxing after a while. Those early records all sound and feel amazing, but what I really wanted was to hear the music without the words. I had high hopes when I found a copy of Another Galaxy, the 1974 Gary Wilson Trio LP, but it had a very different heft than that which Gary displayed on You Think You Really Know Me. It was really just a jazz LP. Well, heres some instrumental material from the same mid-late 70s time frame as You Think, and its pretty amazing. Theres one side of classic youthful piano destruction by Gary and the late Vince Rossi (one of Garys most dependable collusionists). And the second side has five shorter tracks with a trio, that moves like oddball soundtrack music from 70s exploitation cinema (which is exactly what Id hoped Another Galaxy would be like), before ending with the vocal track I Love Gary -- as maniacally collapsed a pop song construct as anyone could hope for. Its a great record. A bit more overtly avant than the other three GW LPs weve done. But surely you can handle that." - Byron Coley, 2015.

Price: $20.00
Repressed. "Finally a new vinyl issue of Gary Wilsons monumental 1977 LP, with extra pics galore, and the original cover art (c/o Owen Maercks well-loved copy). Owen also wrote liner notes describing what it was like for the first Gary Wilson fan on the planet. You Think You Really Know Me (also the title of Michael Wolks 2005 documentary about Gary) was Wilsons second LP, but the first he recorded as a vocalist, hewing to his own bizarre vision -- a syncretic collision of romance, new-wave cocktail-jazz, heartbreak, disco-porn soundtrack music, and experimental tape manipulation. Home recorded in Endicott, NY, the album found a few fans when released, but subsequently became the exclusive purview of record collectors and the women who tolerate them. Beck name-checked Gary in 96, which made a few new people scratch their heads. And the album was reissued in 02. Rediscovery followed, and records, the documentary, and some odd live shows followed. Most of Garys moves are stamped with his unique aesthetic, and we particularly commend Garys other two Feeding Tube LPs -- Lisa Wants to Talk to You and Forgotten Lovers. But as bodacious as these two albums are, the real root of Garys muse is most obvious on You Think You Really Know Me. It is the sound of a 23 year-old oddball from upstate New York, wrestling with his demons and actually winning. Theres nothing quite like it. And it offers a story of hope to every weirdo who hears it. Hallelujah!" - Feeding Tube.
