The Byrds - Live At Royal Albert Hall 1971 (2-LP Set)
From their earliest days as 12-string-wielding folk-rockers, to the thrilling psychedelic excursions of their raga-rock period to their 1968 birthing of country-rock, the Byrds were always accorded a hero’s welcome in England.What better place to record founding Byrds member/guitarist/singer Roger McGuinn’s new version of the band—featuring fretboard ace Clarence White, bassist Skip Battin and drummer Gene Parsons—than London’s Royal Albert Hall!
Rescued from a tape that had sat forgotten in McGuinn’s climatized garage for decades, this stellar 1971 set, featuring live versions of the current band’s studio faves (“Lover of the Bayou,” “Chestnut Mare”) as well as adventurous reworkings of Byrds classics (“Mr. Tambourine Man,” “My Back Pages,” “Eight Miles High,”“So You Want to Be a Rock‘n’Roll Star”) might be the most accurate and stirring live performance yet of the legendary Los Angeles combo. By 1971, the guitar interplay of McGuinn andWhite had become a jaw-dropping highlight of their live performances,as had their stripped down, acoustic mini-set and peerless four-part vocal harmonies.

Blue Cheer - Outsideinside LP
Blue Cheer’s second album, Outsideinside, fully matches its predecessor’s primal power. The last Blue Cheer release to feature the beloved lineup of Stephens, Peterson and Whaley, Outsideinside is a bracing orgy of volume, distortion and aggression, with such highlights as “Just a Little Bit,” “Come and Get It,” the instrumental “Magnolia Caboose Babyfinger” and the band’s distinctive take on the Rolling Stones’ “Satisfaction.” Like its predecessor, Outsideinside has been out of print on vinyl for decades and has long been prized by collectors. Sundazed’s vinyl edition is sourced from the original Philips reels, complete with the unique original cover design.
Blue Cheer looms large in the annals of hard rock, laying down the sonic foundations of heavy metal, and serving as a crucial influence on the birth of punk, grunge and stoner rock. While the rest of the rock world was mellowing out and embracing the spirit of the Summer of Love, the seminal San Francisco power trio was churning out ballsy blues-rock anthems whose fuzz-heavy, adrenaline-charged intensity helped to alter the course of contemporary music.

The Music Machine - Ignition LP
In the teeming, churning world of ‘60s garage punk, the Music Machine stood out from the pack. With their all-black clothing, menacing minor key melodies and main man Sean Bonniwell’s gritty lyrics, they created a musical world that was the dark underbelly of the Summer of Love. While they are best known for their top twenty hit, “Talk Talk,” during their time together they recorded multiple sessions packed with squealing Farfisas, fuzzed out guitars and Bonniwell’s omnipotent baritone vocals. Collecting this wealth of material has been a daunting task for fans in the past, but Sundazed has risen to the challenge with Ignition. This collection of incredible rarities mines material from across the band’s career, from their pre-“Talk, Talk” 1965 demos as the Ragamuffins to their final experimental 1969 recordings. Compiled by Bob Irwin and Sean Bonniwell, these 14 tracks (19 on the compact disc) offer an intriguing look at group’s rich catalog.
The Ragamuffins’ demos capture the band at a point of transition, evolving from folk rock to their later, more aggressive style. “Two Much,” for example, finds them following a typical pop template underscored with an unmistakable sense of foreboding. Another Ragamuffins track, “Push Don’t Pull,” is a strident, blues-based number propelled by a martial drumbeat. Jumping ahead to “Dark White,” a terrific 1969 outtake, the foreboding moves front and center, enveloping the listener as the track slowly builds to a climax. Also included is rare single “Advise and Consent,” a showcase for Bonniwell’s soulful singing.
The perfect compliment to the band’s released ouput, Ignition adds an essential chapter to the Music Machine story. Detailed notes by Bonniwell and Music Machine expert Mike Stax (of Ugly Things magazine fame) guide you through each selection with enlightening insight. Mastered from the original analog session tapes by Bob Irwin and Sean Bonniwell with painstaking precision, these tracks fire faster than brand-new spark plugs. Let the countdown to Ignition begin! - See more at: http://www.sundazed.com/shop/product_info.php?cPath=44&products_id=152#sthash.M5aG1Mi2.dpuf

LEMONHEADS - IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY
On It's a Shame About Ray (1992), songwriter Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield perfected their signature style of Punk-Pop-meets-Folk-Rock. The album is a beautiful collection of sunny melodies and hooks, delivered with typical nonchalance by Dando. A smorgasbord of immediately accessible and thoroughly catchy songs, his laid-back observations of middle-class outcasts are little gems in their own right.
Highlights are the heartbroken title track, "Confetti", "Bit Part In Your Life," the love letter to substances "My Drug Buddy," or the wonderful "Alison's Starting to Happen," where a girl finds herself as she discovers Punk Rock. His warm, friendly voice is offset by Juliana Hatfield's girlish harmonies, giving the songs an emotional resonance. 180 gram audiophile vinyl and Insert
SAM AND DAVE - I THANK YOU
Featuring the all-time classic hits "I Thank You" and "Wrap It Up", the 1968 Sam & Dave record I Thank You explores the more funky side of Soul, being red hot and hip at the moment of release.
The dynamic duo recorded for Atlantic in Memphis, Tennessee at the famed Stax recording studio along with revered house band Booker T and the MG's. They were augmented by the producing and songwriting skills of Isaac Hayes and David Porter, turning the singers into a hit making machine.
This is the first reissue of this classic R&B album since its original release in 1968! 180 gram audiophile vinyl
LOVE - DA CAPO
After releasing their eponymous debut album, Love broadened their scope into psychedelia on their sophomore 1967 effort Da Capo.
The six songs that comprise the first side of this album are a truly classic body of work, highlighted by the atomic blast of their only hit single "Seven & Seven Is", the manic jazz tempos of "Stephanie Knows Who," and the enchanting "She Comes in Colors", perhaps Lee's best composition (and reportedly the inspiration for the Rolling Stones' "She's a Rainbow"). Closing the album is a 19-minute jam called "Revelation" that takes up the entire B-side of Da Capo. 180 gram audiophile vinyl
RUN DMC - TOUGHER THAN LEATHER
Released in 1988, Tougher Than Leather was the culmination of the Rap/Rock road that Run-DMC travelled in since their earlier albums King Of Rock [MOVLP675] and Raising Hell [MOVLP633]. Its superb production, booming 808 beats combined with guitar samples, catchy choruses and smart rhymes made Tougher Than Leather undoubtedly the best Hip Hop record that came out in 1988.
Great tracks include "Mary, Mary", "Run's House" and "I'm Not Going Out Like That". Its equal appeal to Hip Hop as well as Rock fans made the album a million seller, and underlined Run-DMC's stature as living Hip Hop legends all over the world. 180 gram audiophile vinyl
MILES DAVIS - MILESTONES =STEREO=
Milestones is Miles Davis' only original sextet recording featuring John Coltrane, Paul Chambers, Cannonball Adderley, Philly Joe Jones and Red Garland. This 1958 masterpiece captured Davis' first modal jazz experiments in pieces like "Straight, No Chaser" and the title track. Both the song and the album proved to be actual milestones in Jazz, as the modalism Davis introduced on this record continued to influence Jazz on a global scale. 180 gram audiophile vinyl Stereo version
