Back-Wash Rhythm Band - The Golden Breed Soundtrack

DETAILS = Format: Vinyl Label: Sundazed

One of the rarest surf soundtrack albums of all time. Released in 1968, The Golden Breed was hailed as a magnificent, gorgeous film that captured surfing at the height of its longboard era. But it came out on the wave of shortboard competition and was quickly lost to history. The soundtrack is just as evocative and vivid as the aquatic footage and now, sourced from the original Capitol analog tapes, it sounds better than ever. Strictly limited, and will soon be catching a big wave outta here.

Various Artists - Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest in Funk & Soul 1965-79

DETAILS = Format: 7" Vinyl Box Set Label: Light in the Attic

+ Only 2,000 hand-numbered copies worldwide

+ Ten 45rpm singles featuring original label art and housed in a gorgeous custom made magnetic flip-top box

+ 96 page book with new liner notes interviewing the musicians and key players, unseen photos, endless ephemera, replica Seattle SuperSonics trading card, countless photos, and loads of other archival gems

+ CD of “lost” Robbie Hill’s Family Affair session, circa 1975

+ Meticulously remastered

+ Free Download Card for all songs

In 2004, Light In The Attic and DJ Supreme La Rock compiled the first ever set of vintage Pacific Northwest soul, funk, and R&B, Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 (LITA 009). Nearly a decade on, the Wheedle still grooves and with this we give you our most ambitious release to date.

Over three years in the making, Wheedle’s Groove: Seattle’s Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-79 is a lavishly packaged vinyl singles box set featuring ten impossibly rare 45s (some fetching thousands on the collector’s market) from Seattle’s vintage soul scene. Limited to only 2,000 hand-numbered copies worldwide, the ten 45 RPM set is housed in a gorgeous custom made magnetic flip-top box and features meticulously re-mastered audio and original label art. For those who must hear these vintage tunes and can’t relax with a tipple at the turntable, we’ve even included a free download card for all tracks.

But wait, our love for Seattle soul could not rest there… we’ve included a massive 7″×7″ glossy 96-page book with new liner notes by Jonathan Zwickel that features new interviews with the regional musicians and key players, along with never before seen photos—from smokey Seattle clubs to Patrinell Staten singing at Jimi Hendrix’s funeral. Plus, a treasure trove of local music ephemera, a replica Seattle SuperSonics trading card, and countless archival gems.

To round out this lavish set, we’ve also added a very special CD by Seattle soul titans Robbie Hill’s Family Affair: Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions, which though originally recorded in 1975, remained lost until the recent discovery of the original multi-track masters. The tapes were carefully mixed by renowned engineer and producer Steve Fisk. To say it’s a miracle that these tapes surfaced would be a massive understatement.
