WINGED EI - DR. SIEGEL'S FRIED EGG SHOOTING MACHINE (1972 psych prog) - Label: COSMIC ROCK 1972 debut album of a Japanese cult group! This incredible psychedelic/progressive rock band was formed the same year after Shigeru Narumo and Hiro Tsunoda abandoned their Strawberry Path project (they released a single album in 1971 and eventually a 7 inch album). Their sound is pure adrenaline, a kind of heavy and boisterous blues, with heavy Hammond organ riffs and more of a freakbeat influence. Partly inspired by their contemporaries, British bands like Deep Purple and Uriah Heep embraced gentler, more sophisticated arrangements of the soulful ballad "I Love You" with epic strings. The hypothetical single "Plastic Fantasy" could have been an alternative dancefloor classic with that Traffic/Brian Auger twist at the end. LP$30 SKU:25791

(1970 Turkish Fuzz) Label: PHARAWAY SOUNDS As Turkey's political factions turned increasingly violent in the late 1970s, the Buscemi-eyed Edip Akbayram was almost beaten by the rioting public for daring to sing about rural views that he was of course critical of Istanbul. political leaders. This second album of Anatolian psychedelics, originally released in 1977, showed defiance even on its cover, with a drawing of the band members appearing to grow out of the ground, covered in plant vines.

BORN LOSERS- CYCLE GUITARS (David Allen Style)SAALE!-Tag:MEAN DISPOSITION In an age of heavy record releases, it was a little strange that Born Losers - a popular and already veteran band, with three excellent and successful singles behind them - won belts - still hadn't waxed an album. It wasn't laziness, as the members dabbled in all sorts of side projects, and their debut LP confirmed that the Losers were ready for some top-notch R'n'R. The results are truly extraordinary. Far removed from their first influences - namely the sound of Davie Allan & The Arrows - the band maintain their idiosyncratic Sixties flair, but their credentials have increased. The Arrows' distinct influence from their early days has now been replaced by the Challengers' ideas or the Ventures' sound on their latest Dolton records/early Liberty waxes: raw R'n'R coupled with pop melodies, jazz touches and Cinematic music without ever falling into kitsch. The Born Losers emerge as clear winners with this latest offering. €10 SKU: 20655

Cal - also known as "Cal Rock & Roll" - was a band formed in New York in the mid '70s by some veteran club musicians: Larry Calabrese on guitar and vocals, Andy Barone on bass, Jerry Joly on drums/vocals and Jeffrey Gaer on keyboards. Famed for his powerful live shows - opening for Leslie West & Mountain was one of his highlights - Cal has built a loyal following, particularly among the biker crowd.
"Homegrown" was released in 1982 in a print run of 2,000 copies, most of which were discarded due to urgent glitches. The album was also mastered more slowly. Shortly thereafter, Larry met Todd Rundgren in a recording studio and expressed an interest in the band and some of their songs. The famous record label Sugarhill was also interested in adding Cal to their list, but nothing came of it in the end. So "Homegrown" fell into oblivion until some original copies were discovered by some drug dealers and collectors in the 90s.

HORDE - Press the Button Firmly (Rare Mid-Sixties Garage) with 4 Bonus Tracks -Label: BREAK-A-WAY The rare '60s garage album by North Carolina students in early 1967. Meticulously remastered in KSL. Arguably the most exciting mid-'60s garage album to appear in the genre in recent memory comes from North Carolina's The Horde. The existence of this self-produced album only came to the eyes and ears of collectors a year ago.

If it was ever true that the exaggerated claim that a band's covers matched the originals, it's true of The Horde. Why? These five 19- to 20-year-old students from the United States not only paved the way for 1960s rock music in then-conservative North Carolina, but also had a general attitude that drew on the mindset of mid-'60s youth that placed it outside the local mainstream and gained a kind of regional underground popularity.
