"We are thrilled to offer the first and only licensed reissue of Mistress Mary Housewife, an obscure Southern California songwriting demo issued privately in 1969. This is Mary's one and only recording and she's backed here by Carl Walden, Clarence White, Johnny Redd (and other yet to be identified session players) from the late 60s Byrds, Burrito Bros country rock scene. Brilliantly packaged with lush glamour girl photo front and hand-penned liners/bored housewife pics back (sharply introducing herself as Wife - Mother - Civic Leader - etc. - Artiste.) 500 original copies of the album were cut as a demo and maybe 50 of those were sent out as promos to industry folks (she saw to it that one made its way to Elvis Presley). Walden & producer Darrell Cotton thought the world of Mary and encouraged her efforts but after a year or two of little response she moved on to one of her many other careers including stints as an auto mechanics instructor for women, running a class on female self-defense, belly dance instruction, and a lucrative multi-year gig as a disco dance instructor. This faithful reissue was pressed at RTI with heavy, old style tip-in jackets produced by Stoughton. Alternate takes of "And I Didn't Want You" and "My Country Boy" and another track left off of the LP are included on a download card." - Companion.

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.
