V/A - Brown Acid - The Fourth Trip
If you thought we were getting close to the end of the Brown Acid series with our last Trip, you were dead wrong... were only just getting rolling. The well of privately released hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal 45s is deep and we are nowhere near tapped out. Most of these records were barely released and never properly distributed so they aint easy to find, but theyre out there if youre willing to dig... and we arent afraid to get our hands dirty. Hard calluses have formed from handling the shovel and weve sifted through a lot of dirt, but weve dug up another ten tremendous records to share with all the heavy heads out there. This volume brings together eight insanely rare and skull-crushingly heavy 45s as well as two previously unreleased bangers. You may remember the Zekes jaw dropper Box from the First Trip. If you dont, you better go back and refresh your memory, you stoner. That song rips! And so does this previously unheard recording we legally obtained from the Beverly Hills records vaults. Comin Back is the longest tune weve yet to include on this series and its a full-on rager! The only surviving copy of this recording came to us on the original 1/4 master tape from Hollywoods long-defunct Demars & Duffy Music. We did our best to preserve the recording and we think youll appreciate the rawness. There have been numerous groups named Bad Axe over the years, but the one you hear here is the baddest. This five-piece fresh outta high school kicked out this jam (and a few others) in a Chicago studio in 1973 just for the hell of it. As a garage band, they were previously named The Burlington Express and they went on to be known as Bitch, but these dudes hit their stride as Bad Axe and Coachman is their crowning achievement. It went completely unreleased until 2014 when Permanent Records issued it and Poor Man, Run as a limited edition 45 with a killer picture sleeve. Its long out-of-print and only obtainable now on Brown Acid. The rest of the records included on this volume vary in rarity, but at least two of them were virtually unknown until we discovered them. Youll win the lottery before you find copies of all of the original 45s in even the best record stores. Many of the records included in this volume are owned only by the members of the bands and some of the band members dont even have personal copies. Thats just how hard these guys hit it back in the day! Were lucky some of these guys are still alive and well enough to give us permission to use their masters. And for that, we thank them. And you, for all your support. Brown Acid is here to stay... as long as youll have us. Plug in, turn up, and freak out... this is what Rock n Roll is all about." - Ridingeasy.
