The 13th Floor Elevators - Easter Everywhere (vinyl pre-order)

Easter Everywhere was the 13th Floor Elevators second album. Widely regarded as the band's peak, the album captures the band before the drug abuse, mental health problems and run-ins with the law that led to their premature demise.

Previously only available as part of the Music Of The Spheres box set, this is the first official mono vinyl reissue of Easter Everywhere since 1967.

"Their masterpiece. Easter Everywhere is an all-time higher key document. With a measured Erickson vocal and a blissful Sutherland solo, 'Slip Inside This House' is eight minutes of constant build: the guide for a new enlightenment. The rest isn't bad either..." - Mojo

Pre-order now for 10th June release date.

The 13th Floor Elevators - Bull Of The Woods (vinyl pre-order)

This is the first release on vinyl for A Love That's Sound and it contains a recently discovered and never-heard before version of Some Day My Love, the song originally scheduled as the band's 6th single.

Previously only available as part of the Music Of The Spheres box set, Bull of The Woods is the first vinyl reissue from tape sources of the stereo edition for over three decades.

"The fearless trailblazers of Psychedelia and one of the most kick-ass rock bands ever... For two or so years they burned with a flame so fierce that 40 years on they still remain an inspiration." - Mojo

Pre-order now for 10th June release date.

The Soft Machine - The Soft Machine / AKA Volume One

The Soft Machine's debut from 1968 was the only album to feature Kevin Ayers alongside Robert Wyatt and Mike Ratledge.

Dada inspired Psychedelia collides with inventive pop, Jazz and soul influences to unique effect.

This is a limited edition LP version on 180gm virgin vinyl presented in a facsimile of the original gatefold artwork.

The Soft Machine - Volume Two

Soft Machine's second album was the last to prominently feature vocals - Robert Wyatt on particularly dazzling form - and the first to feature Hugh Hopper as a band member.

Volume Two is a wildly imaginative collection of off-kilter songs and proto-Jazz Rock instrumental strangeness that includes the two long suites Rivmic Melodies and Esther's Nose Job, and the timelessly beautiful Hugh Hopper piece, Dedicated To You But You Weren't Listening.

Jane's Addiction - Live in NYC (2LP)

Jane’s Addiction has always thrown THE most provocative and extravagant parties in rock, mixing a fierce musicality and streetwise lyrics with a theatrical flair. 2011 and 2012 saw the band - who have always outrageously combined electricity, sex and danger - return to the stage in support of their acclaimed album The Great Escape Artist (Capitol Records). Filmed at New York City’s Terminal 5 on July 25, 2011 at a free show for the album’s launch, LIVE IN NYC encapsulates the true essence of Jane’s Addiction in concert, mixing music with performance art. With the band as the ringleaders, they take you, along with a diverse cast of vagabonds, through an extravagant world of flying burlesque dancers, trapeze artists and carnival sideshow antics, offering stunning visuals enhanced with a visual masterpiece of lasers, capturing the incredible mood of this spectacular night. Amidst it all, Jane’s Addiction, featuring frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Chris Chaney, gives astonishing performances of one classic after another including their 1988 Top 10 hit “Jane Says;” “Been Caught Stealing” and “Stop!,” both No. 1 singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart; “Ain’t No Right,” “Three Days,” and “Just Because,” which went to No. 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks and No. 4 on Mainstream Rock chart. LIVE IN NYC also features the debut live performance of their latest single, “Irresistible Force (Met The Immovable Object),” from The Great Escape Artist. Bonus material on the Blu-ray & DVD include an interview with Perry Farrell and photo gallery.
