BOSOM BLUES BAND, THE - The Overgone Sounds Of...

Heres a new, high quality, long lost, unreleased heavy blues psych LP, recorded in late 1968 in Baltimore, all previously unreleased material! Very limited edition, dont miss it! Label liner notes: November 23rd, 1968...The Bosom Blues Band - four fellows aged 18 to 22, entered Recordings Incorporated, a 4-track studio in Baltimore. Producer Martin Gary brought the guys up from Richmond, where hed found their live performances to be more exciting than any Rock band in town during the Sixties. The session was engineered by George Massenburg. These demos were laid down in one night, at a pace that would have drained the blood from most any white boy blues band. Some of this material is live, with no overdubs. "Leavin Trunk", for example, is a raw, barely harnessed opener. The Bosom Blues Band usually called themselves The Bosom Blues. Under their skin they had heart and soul in spades. This demo session was booked to document their agility with various R&B styles, old and new. But things went further. The addition of saxophone on three (or four) of these cuts was not an attempt to add a gut bucket element to the proceedings. This sax man blows with a thermo-static arpeggio jazz approach thats more out than in. Avant-garde (the term really resonated at the time) alto makes their brand of rocking blues oscillate all the more. These often unconventional, always energized, personality plus performances got them face to face with the late Sam Charters, and an offer to join the roster of the iconic Vanguard Records. For reasons lost in time they turned it down, disbanding before 1969 was half way ended." -Arcania

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
