Blues Magoos The Mercury Singles 1966-1968 - LP
Hailing from NYC, The Blues Magoos took the folk/blues soundtrack of their mid-sixties Greenwich Village contemporaries and forged it into a tough, garage/psych hybrid that attracted fans as quickly as it angered folk club owners, incensed by the band's volume and unhinged stage show! Signed by Mercury Records in 1966, their inaugural single for the label, a reading of John D. Loudermilk's "Tobacco Road," was a churning 4 1/2 minute(!) plunge into crazed guitar/organ/drum/bass pyrotechnics with vocals careening over the top. The release hailed the arrival of a new and wholly unique voice on the rock scene. … [COMPLETE INFO]
The Tropics You Better Move / It's You I'll Miss - 7" Single
Tampa, Florida legends the Tropics released a stack of great records in the sixties. But none of those singles is more coveted by garage collectors than their ’66 masterpiece, "You Better Move;" a tambourine-bashing, harmonica-wailin,' epic screamer. With its super-threatening lyrics, delivered in a pathologically aggravated state by Tropics lead vocalist Mel Dryer, this record serves as a master class in anger mismanagement.… [COMPLETE INFO]

The Litter $100 Fine - LP
How do you top THE LITTER'S godlike '67 longplayer, Distortions? Well, you don't. But leave it to THE LITTER to deliver the equally essential (not to mention hopelessly rare) '68 follow-up, $100 Fine. From the ultra-explosive album opener, "Mindbreaker" (where the Distortions sound now takes on Blue Cheer-like heaviosity) to the LP's epic finale; a nine-minute, ambitiously retooled "She's Not There," $100 Fine ranks as one of its era's masterpieces… [COMPLETE INFO]
C.A. Quintet Trip Thru Hell - Gold Vinyl LP
The C.A. Quintet's journey to Hades burned hot enough to melt the ice in their frigid Minnesota environs.

The Electric Prunes Singles 1966-1969 - 2-LP Set
The Electric Prunes perfectly bridged the edgy, fuzz-fueled garage-rock of contemporaries like the Blues Magoos and the Thirteenth Floor Elevators with a diligent, progressive studio craft reminiscent of the Beatles and Beach Boys. And now, we're extremely proud to present a deluxe Sundazed gatefold-edition double-LP set, compiling the legendary Prunes' single side - all of which magnificently helped draw the road map of American Psychedelia, '66-69… [COMPLETE INFO]

Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams - LP
Released June 15, 1960, Johnny Cash Sings Hank Williams is not quite an accurate title. Only four of the album's twelve tracks are Hank Williams' songs with all but one of the remaining tracks composed by Cash. Whatever the title, this is a fantastic collection of early tracks from Sun… [COMPLETE INFO]
Now Here's Johnny Cash - LP

The Buckinghams - I'm A Man / Don't Want To Cry - 7" Single
A most legendary lost recording - the single that never was!!! Here's the Buckinghams' extreme-fuzz-fest take on Bo Diddley's "I'm a Man" - a track found only on a mere handful of first pressings of the band's initial longplayer. It is beyond INSANE!… [COMPLETE INFO]

An indescribably-great, Chicago 60's garage floor-filler!!! "Take Me Back and Hold Me" is a beyond-frantic rocker supercharged with wild guitar and wailing harmonica, while "Need a Little Lovin'" is a perfectly-moody folk-rocker drenched with electric 6 and 12-string guitars.… [COMPLETE INFO]

The Knickerbockers - The Challenge Recordings - 4 CD Boxed Set

H.P. Lovecraft - Live 1968
"A previously unissued, killer acid-ballroom blitz by the late H.P. Lovecraft, a sadly under regarded Chicago band caught in its trippy Gothic psych-rock prime at the Filmore West." - Rolling Stone
In case you hadn't noticed, there weren't a lot of people taking notes during the heyday of psychedelic concertdom. As a result, the lore and legend of that era consists of hazy, mumbled recollections of plankton - brained survivors. Well, rewrite the history books, because Sundazed archaeologist Jeff Jarema - in collaboration with Lovecraft honcho George Edwards … [COMPLETE INFO]

Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen - Live In San Francisco 1971
Located 40-odd miles west of Detroit, Ann Arbor was a cauldron of social change in the '60s. Radical politics, courtesy of Students for a Democratic Society and John Sinclair's White Panther Party, mixed with a vibrant music scene which featured adventurous acts like Iggy Pop and the Psychedelic Stooges. In the midst of this fervor, local musician George Frayne IV felt the urge to form a country swing/boogie band, of all things. … [COMPLETE INFO]

The Midnighters
Their Greatest Hits - 180 Gram LP
The lascivious pen of Henry "Hank" Ballard was responsible for many risque odes, including The Midnighters' "Work With Me Annie," "Sexy Ways," and "Get It," major R&B hits of the early '50s all included on 1956's Their Greatest Hits! The FCC banned several of the band's songs from airplay, which only made them that much more desirable for the growing teenage market, and this Sundazed edition - pressed on 180 gram audiophile vinyl at RTI - is the ultimate way to experience the best of the throbbing fury of this storied ensemble at its peak.

Joined by Dean Smith and Steve Holmes, Martin and associates lay down storming, stomping renditions of two favorite '60s numbers, "Groovy Grubworm" and "Scratchy" - the former a brilliant marriage of a modified Bo Diddley beat and country and western boogie, and the latter a sleek, shining reading of Travis Wammack's 1964 original! … [COMPLETE INFO]
The Lovin' Spoonful
Hums Of The Lovin' Spoonful - 180 Gram Mono Edition LP

Daydream - 180 Gram Mono Edition LP
By the release of their second album, Daydream, in March 1966, the band's songwriting chops had fully blossomed, particularly Sebastian's, who wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs. The album's first single, "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice" reached #10 on the Hot 100 and married a signature Yanovsky riff with a galloping piano part to form an indelible hook. The title track, a mid-tempo reverie with an ace whistling solo, did even better, soaring to #2. … [COMPLETE INFO]

Richie Havens
"Freedom." The very mention of the song conjures images of Richie Havens at Woodstock, fiercely strumming his guitar and lost in an improvisational moment of creation. An intensely engaging performer, Havens honed his craft in the clubs and cafes of Greenwich Village, just over the bridge from his native Brooklyn. Painter, poet and multi-instrumentalist, Havens immersed himself in the Village's beatnik culture just as the nascent folk scene began to develop. … [COMPLETE INFO]

Wayne Cochran
Wayne Cochran! The exclamation point is there for a reason. Known as "The White Knight of Soul," Cochran was flamboyant in both voice and attire. Crowned by a swooping white pompadour, he held back nothing on stage. His performance style was very reminiscent of fellow Georgia native Little Richard Penniman. Like Penniman, music led Cochran to his current career as a minister. Anyone who's ever witnessed a fire-and-brimstone southern gospel service can see the connection between gospel's passion and r&b's groove. … [COMPLETE INFO]

Eric Burdon & the Animals
The Twain Shall Meet
Burdon and the group returned in April 1968 with The Twain Shall Meet, continuing their psychedelic journey. "Monterey" chronicled the previous summer's seminal festival while "Sky Pilot" reflected the growing anti-war sentiment as the Vietnam Conflict escalated. Steeped in a dense, layered sound full of electric guitars, sitars, strings, brass and washes of phased vocals, the album served notice that Burdon and company were totally in-step with America's youth movement. … [COMPLETE INFO]
Eric Burdon & the Animals
Winds of Change
Reeling from poor management decisions and inter-band strife, The Animals fell apart toward the end of 1966. Seeking a rebirth, lead vocalist Eric Burdon relocated from London to California. There, Burdon assembled a new Animals lineup, retaining only drummer Barry Jenkins from the previous incarnation. Now known as Eric Burdon and The Animals, the group immersed themselves in the psychedelic culture of San Francisco and their sound followed suit.… [COMPLETE INFO]
Bo Diddley
Bo Diddley Is A... Lover
Delivering a devastating punch to rock's early '60s doldrums, Bo Diddley Is a Lover bursts at the seams with Bo's uncompromising, rockin' beat. Yep. Industry and the government may have cleaned up fellow '50s rockers like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis and Gene Vincent, but they didn't get to Bo -- a defiant rocker to the core. … [COMPLETE INFO]
Bo Diddley
Have Guitar Will Travel
Good Lord. Bo Diddley came out with all guns blazing on his floor-rattling romp from 1960, Have Guitar Will Travel. The LP would become a blueprint for SO much great rock 'n' roll that followed: the Stones covered "Mona" in 1965, the Masters Apprentices walloped "Dancing Girl," the Downliners Sect blasted through "Nursery Rhyme," and "Cops and Robbers" even named one of the baddest mid-'60s UK R&B combos ever! … [COMPLETE INFO]

The Shadows of Knight
LIVE 1966
Besides releasing two classic longplayers and many more singles (including the smash, "Gloria"), touring/behaving badly all across America and appearing on TV shows like 'Upbeat' and 'Where The Action Is', the Shadows of Knight also ruled at suburban Chicago's hands-down hippest teen club, The Cellar. Over the decades, their Cellar performances have become the stuff of legend. … [COMPLETE INFO]
The Standells
The Standells' amazing string of punkish, tough-guy anthems, like "Dirty Water" and "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White", define the legacy of mid-sixties garage rock like nothing else. With the success of these records came '66 tours with the Rolling Stones and Beach Boys. From all reports, the Standells proved a superb live act. But for decades their on-stage reputation rested on… [COMPLETE INFO]

James Brown
Love Power Peace 3 LP Set
James Brown's magnum opus! Love Power Peace is the sound of the Godfather and his youngblood J.B.'s (including Bootsy and Catfish Collins) electrifying a crazed Parisian audience on March 8, 1971. Sequenced and mixed by Brown himself for a planned triple album, the set was shelved when key band members departed before it could be issued. Here, for the first time, are the sides as intended, exactly as delivered by James Brown Productions … [COMPLETE INFO]
Freddy (Freddie) King
Bossa Nova and Blues LP
One of the Three Kings of blues guitar along with B.B. and Albert, Texas-born Freddy (Freddie) King influenced everyone from Eric Clapton and Peter Green in the UK to Jerry Garcia and Stevie Ray Vaughan in the States. But even his staying up all night playing poker with Grand Funk wasn't enough to prevent his seminal King/Federal albums from staying out of print on vinyl for decades … [COMPLETE INFO]

Bo Diddley
It's tempting to say that Bo Diddley recorded 11 full-length albums, each one better than the last; but that would be denying the pure, unsurpassed genius of his first, Bo Diddley. Music historians have wasted so many perfectly good words trying to explain the significance of Bo Diddley. "Bo Diddley liberated the blues from the 12-bar form and melded it to an insistent, infectious rhumba beat," they bleat … [COMPLETE INFO]
Bo Diddley
Bo Diddley's Beach Party
It's the beach party of your dreams. Not one of those with the squeaky-clean suburban kids doing the frug at Malibu like in the movies, oh no. This is Myrtle Beach, filled with dangerous bikers and gang members and hot mamas and escaped convicts and god knows who else (best not to ask), all cruising for kicks. It's after midnight but the heat still lingers from a blistering day. Except for a small bonfire … [COMPLETE INFO]
Beautiful! The Youngbloods Live in San Francisco, 1971
By the time the Youngbloods, always crowd faves at the west coast ballrooms, performed live for San Francisco's free-form radio pioneer KSAN in 1971, they'd honed their set to a fine gloss. Featuring the smooth as apple-butter voice of Jesse Colin Young and the guitar/keyboard wizardry of Banana, backed by the rock-solid bass-and-drum tandem of Michael Kane and Joe Bauer, the Youngbloods … [COMPLETE INFO]

Paper Garden
Paper Garden
Sgt. Pepper taught a lot of bands to play in 1967, including New York's Paper Garden, whose absorption of the Fab Four's Summer of Love statement came out on Musicor Records the following year. What Paper Garden can't match in terms of the Beatles' sophistication they make up for in ambition, as exhibited on the harpsichord-enhanced pop genius of "Lady's Man," orchestrated gems like… [COMPLETE INFO]
Stoned Age Man
Rooted in the steamy backroads of Texas and deep-fried at a Memphis recording studio, Joseph's Stoned Age Man was served up like a sizzling hot rattlesnake appetizer slathered in fuzz-blooz grease in 1969. Legend has it that the titles of eight of the album's nine songs came before they were written on the spot, which speaks volumes for the talents of Joseph (aka, Joseph Longeria) … [COMPLETE INFO]

The See See
Days, Nights & Late Morning Lights
The See See are a contemporary psychedelic band with one foot in 1967 and the other in 2014 - they not only make psychedelic music for today, they make it for forever. The See See originated out of the ashes of some of the modern pop world's hippest guitar psych acts, most notably Richard Olson's 'The Eighteenth Day of May'. Forged in the uber-competitive London music scene… [COMPLETE INFO]
Pandemonium Shadow Show
Nilsson's first true album, 1967's Pandemonium Shadow Show, is an astonishing collection that announces the artist's unique vaudevillian take on 1960s pop music - a style that brought him to the attention of the Beatles by way of their press agent Derek Taylor. Produced by Rick Jarrard (Jefferson Airplane, Jose Feliciano) and primarily arranged by George Tipton, the set strikes a balance between Harry's breathtaking originals… [COMPLETE INFO]
Aerial Ballet
Aerial Ballet solidified Nilsson's craft as a singer-songwriter par excellence. His pen is decidedly sharper in songs like "Together," "One" and "Don't Leave Me," which deal with the insecurities and fatalities of romance. Suicide is explored in "I Said Goodbye to Me," and the subjects of fame ("Mr. Richland's Favorite Song") and fatherhood ("Daddy's Song") get their drubbing in scat-filled soft-shoe style. This Sundazed edition presents the 1968 mono mix… [COMPLETE INFO]

Jimi Hendrix
Purple Haze
The second single by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, "Purple Haze" coupled with "51st Anniversary," as it was issued in the UK and Europe, showcases the artistry and mystique of Jimi Hendrix. It beckons us into his psychedelic world just as it did in spring 1967, when it hit the Top Five in the UK between the likes of "Somethin' Stupid" and "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You" on the charts. The two sides presented Hendrix's space-age take on blues and pop, establishing… [COMPLETE INFO]
Lula Reed

These sessions yielded two Billboard Top Ten R&B singles, "Let's Call It a Day" (#7) and "I'll Drown in My Tears" (#5). These songs plus ten more smokin' sides are collected on Blue and Moody… [COMPLETE INFO]
Chuck Jackson
I Don't Want To Cry
Growing up in Pittsburgh, Chuck Jackson witnessed first-hand the rise of the city's vibrant doo wop scene. Joining local heroes the Del Vikings, his smooth, commanding voice took the lead on their 1957 single "Willette." Going solo in 1959, Jackson was spotted by producer/Wand Records A&R man Luther Dixon while opening for Jackie Wilson at the Apollo Theater. With Dixon, Jackson co-wrote his first hit, "I Don't Want to Cry." The track featured a lavish… [COMPLETE INFO]
Chuck Jackson
On Tour
In the original liner notes for Chuck Jackson on Tour (1964), Bob King describes Jackson "a man with pent up talent." Consequently, this LP is the sound of that talent erupting all over the stage of the famed Apollo Theater, the same venue where Jackson had been discovered a few years earlier. Jackson leads the airtight band through raw, sweat-soaked versions of his hits "I Wake Up Crying" and "Any Day Now," giving the audience their money's worth and more. He also includes… [COMPLETE INFO]
