Blues Magoos - Electric Comic Book
The Blues Magoos launched their recording career with the LP Psychedelic Lollipop. The equally impressive Electric Comic Book refines the band's mix of rock ’n’ roll and day-glo psychedelia. That punchy yet playful approach animates such distinctive numbers as “Pipe Dream,” “Rush Hour,” “There’s a Chance We Can Make It” and “Albert Common Is Dead.”
Sundazed’s new vinyl edition also features a replica of the original comic book that was packaged with the album’s original pressings.

This ’60s garage-psych nugget is now available from Sundazed on High Definition Vinyl, sourced from the original Mercury-label stereo masters, with the colorful original cover art meticulously reproduced.

In their '60s heyday, the Blues Magoos were one of the first garage-punk bands to achieve mainstream success, and one of the first to embrace psychedelia. Early in their existence, the Bronx-bred quintet's high-energy live sets made them a popular attraction on the Greenwich Village club scene. Once they began making records, they quickly emerged as one of one of the earliest and most inventive exponents of the psychedelic sound. The band's 1966 debut album Psychedelic Lollipop and its 1967 followup Electric Comic Book, are two of that period's most beloved and enduring albums.

Bob Hocko And The Swamp Rats - Disco Still Sucks!
The wicked torrent of fuzzed-out mayhem these Steel City hooligans burned onto their ‘66 and ‘67 single sides is legendary, from a raunchy “Louie Louie” that drinks the Kingsmen under the table, to the head-smash of “Psycho,” to the gunpowdered cover of the Sparkles’ “No Friend of Mine.” But you get not only all the singles on this first-ever proper reissue of their material, but four bona-fide killers from the vaults, including an original muscle-car fuzz romp called “Hey Freak"; an extended version of “Tobacco Road” that’s a shotgun wedding of Nashville Teens R&B hedonism and Blues Magoos Bronx bombshells; a fine bluesy original called “I’m Going Home"; and a spiffy cover of the Kinks’ “She’s Got Everything.” With the band members telling their story for the first time in the extensive liners, unseen photos galore, and crisp sound, this is -- once again -- the reissue of the year. Or maybe the reissue of the century.

Chains - I Cried / Yesterday, Today Tomorrow
By now, you probably know that Swamp Rats screamer Bob Hocko recorded with the Fantastic Dee-Jays before the Rats wreaked havoc. But even before his talents were revealed in those two combos, Hocko was leading another McKeesport trio, the Chains. Formed in the early ’60s, the band initially played covers of standards like “Little Star” and “Under The Boardwalk” before graduating to Rolling Stones and Kinks covers with the onset of the British Invasion in 1964. They also did their own stuff, and two previously unreleased Hocko originals are presented here for the first time!: “I Cried” is a fine teen garage beat mover, while “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” equals the best of the Dee-Jays’ Mersey ballads.

Dean Carter - Call Of The Wild
he missing link between wild rockabilly abandon and snarling garage punk

Dean Carter was/is the ultimate rock'n'roll anomaly. Just check out the photo on the cover of CALL OF THE WILD!, one of the craziest collections your humble compiler has had the pleasure to assemble in recent memory. Presley-like stance, guitar by his side, with a swept-back do and zebra-striped jacket to die for. The ultimate in rockin' cool. Must be late 1950s, right? Uh-uh. How does 1968 grab ya?

Carter was a wildman, coughing up some of the most insane rock'n'roll platters known to man and beast, records that are all the more remarkable for their improbable recording dates. There's a time-warp sensibility to the sound of Dean Carter that is truly intriguing. He'd been singing rock in his native Champaign, Illinois since the late 1950s - indeed, there are even a couple of his rebel-raw 1959 demos included here - yet Carter retained his trademark rockabilly hiccup whether he combined it with a stomping garage beat (Sizzlin' Hot) or a rough hewn soul shout (Love's A-Workin').

Dean Carter really wanted to be a star and it's obvious from the sounds contained onCALL OF THE WILD! that he really had the goods to have become one. With an uncanny ability to swing from a high falsetto to a moody growl, the singer could switch from crooning a dramatic ballad to belting out a sizzling rocker. He just did things he wanted to do, in the way he felt right. With his sidekick Arlie Miller behind the studio controls, the amazing recordings here span a full decade (1959-69), yet they sound as though they all could have all been taped at the same session, such is the relentless rocking drive common to each and every performance.

The apex of Dean Carter has to be upon the truly berserk treatment of Jailhouse Rock that was issued as a single on Carter and Miller's tiny Milky Way label in 1967 (and has been widely bootlegged in subsequent years). The record itself defies description - suffice to say, it sounds as though a riot really is taking place - yet incredibly the research for the notes threw up the fact that buried amongst the sonic chaos is not only an accordion and a frantically-scrubbed dobro, but also a clarinet played by a 12-year old girl!! Joe Meek could not have devised a more unusual session. Many other tracks are only slightly less crazed, such as I Got A Girl, Black Boots and the stomping Mary Sue, the latter cut as a single in Washington in 1968 with the aid of one-time Gene Vincent sidekick Jerry Merritt.

I could blather on about the genius of Dean Carter for a whole RT, but instead I urge you all, if you say you like rock'n'roll, to buy this CD, ogle the eye-bending pix, read the bizarre story and revel in the unselfconsciously manic sounds it contains. This guy is an unsung hero of unprecendented proportions. All hail Dean Carter!

Neal Ford & The Fanatics - Good Men
In mid-60s America, every major city had at least one rock’n’roll band that ruled the town. Such top-dogs enjoyed a rabidly partisan audience that packed the teen centres, populated the fan clubs and pushed their records to the top of the local charts. In the major metropolis of Houston,Texas, that group was Neal Ford & the Fanatics.

Led by Ford and featuring talented writers Lanier Greig, Jon Pereles and Johnny Stringfellow, the Fanatics ruled the roost at Houston clubs such as the Catacombs and, once they signed to Nashville indie Hickory in late 1966, seemed destined for national stardom. History has identified such local kingpins as garage bands, simply because of their grass roots appeal. But the Fanatics were a well-oiled professional machine, capable of putting on a memorable show and backing it up with vocals and chops that raised the band far above the calibre of the suburban hop or teen club. Despite the British elements to their music – Kinks chording, Zombies moodiness – theirs was very much an American sound. Lead vocalist Neal Ford had a professed love for vintage rock and R&B, but the group’s real strength vocally was the three-part harmony of Ford, Pereles and bass player Dub Johnson. When allied to the classic organ and fuzz-driven “Vox” sound of the group, it was an unbeatable combination.

Texas has a well-deserved reputation for some of the most acerbic 60s rock on record, but the state also produced a fair tranche of acts such asDallas’ Five Americans who excelled in the commercial pop of the time. The Fanatics straddled the fence. Their songwriting and playing abilities alone made them somewhat above-average, but the band was also willing to experiment. Some of this slipped out – ‘I Will Not Be Lonely’ is one of the earliest British-influenced Texan garage discs, and their Yardbirds-psych opus ‘I Will If You Want To’ seems in hindsight to have been an audacious move. But once they became regionally successful with ‘Gonna Be My Girl’ and a much more lightweight formula, the group’s releases stopped representing anything more than the commercial dictates of the record company.

Thus the standing of Neal Ford & the Fanatics for many years largely resided within the rosy glow of Houston nostalgia, but the truth is that, buried in tape vaults, record company archives and the personal stash of their former manager, lies enough evidence to demonstrate that in the studio, the Fanatics could more than match their repute as a live act.

“Good Men” is a long-overdue survey of their best recorded moments, and runs the gamut from expertly produced and performed commercial pop and folk-rock to freaky psychedelic experiment and the gnarliest of 60s punk. It features several of the Fanatics’ popular singles for Hickory, cuts from their lone album for the label, as well as fantastic earlier sides released on the Houston indies Gina and Tantara. Every track is drawn from master tape, well over half have never appeared on compact disc before, and several are unissued killers that add immeasurably to the group’s reputation.

Oscar & The Majestics - No Chance Baby !
For anyone with an overindulged appetite for '60s garage compilations, Oscar & the Majestics must seem like old friends. Certainly, that’s the way we feel about ‘em. In Sundazed’s exhaustive dig through the prized USA & Destination Records catalogs (2131 South Michigan Avenue: 60's Garage & Psychedelia from USA and Destination Records LP/CD), no other act—and that includes hit makers like the Buckinghams and Cryin’ Shames—came close to the coverage afforded Oscar Hamod & the Majestics. If the group had left more than five tracks in the USA vaults, no doubt we would have included more.

Well, that was before Oscar opened up his vast personal archives, undisturbed for over 40 years, allowing for this first-ever collection of his complete ‘60s output. This includes the band’s best known USA sides, like the impossibly cool, fuzzed-out “Soul Finger”, as well as ultra-rare, Oscar-pressed singles (including the first official reissue of “House of the Rising Sun 1969”; an over the top rearrangement that suffers no shortage of Oscar-fuzz/Oscar-attitude.

Most rewarding of all, this set unleashes the unreleased “Baby Under My Skin” and “I Feel Good”; both seriously Kinky krunchers from the USA era. As a bonus, we blow the lid off the untold history of Mr. Hamod & his rockin’ crew in a package also crammed with vintage photos and rare 45 label scans

Rationals - Fan Club Album
For fans of the shiny black stuff, Big Beat is proud to present two different LPs by Ann Arbor’s finest, the Rationals this month. Last year’s “Think Rational!” compilation, the first legitimate repackaging of this storied combo’s mid-60s sides for the legendary A-Square label, was very warmly received indeed. The group’s distinctive brand of garage soul, so long the pride of their native Michigan, finally got the “respect” (pun intended) it deserves. And so, for the aficionados we offer these two extra special vinyl editions.

The “Fan Club Album” is legendary in collector circles as one of the rarest 60s garage artefacts known to man – only three test pressing copies are confirmed to exist. Consisting of unreleased outtakes from the band’s earliest sessions in 1965 and 1966, the longplayer was intended as a farewell “thank you” to the groups loyal fanbase by the band’s producer and mentor Jeep Holland, when he parted ways with the Rationals in late 1968. Save for one cut, this reissue reprises the album’s original tracklist and running order, and comes with a new, fully illustrated sleeve. In fact two tracks (the instrumentals ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ and ‘Strawberry Jam’) and several of the versions do not appear on “Think Rational!” and are thus exclusive to this release.

At the height of their popularity, there was much consideration of a Rationals album. Jeep even gave the project a title – “A-Soulin’ We Go With The Rationals”. Though the band recorded several of the selections Jeep had mapped out for inclusion, the record never came to fruition. But our “Out On The Floor” compilation approximates its contents, by collecting together the best material from the Rationals’ mid-60s garage-soul heyday, including such signature tunes as ‘Leavin’ Here’, ‘Temptation’s ‘Bout To Get Me’ and their big regional hit, ‘I Need You’. Mostly recorded at sessions in 1967 and 1968, when the beloved Michigan quartet was at the top of its game, it’s both a groovy spin for the hardcore Rats fan, and a power packed introduction for those who have yet to discover the blue-eyed magic of the mighty RATIONALS.

Rationals - Think Rational ! 2CD
To borrow the title of their lone Billboard Hot 100 entry - #92 in late 1966 - it’s really all about “respect”: the enduring respect that the mighty Rationals enjoy amongst fans and fellow musicians from Michigan rock’s golden era. Cherished by a devoted fan base, the pioneering Ann Arbor quartet were top dogs in the state, and those that experienced the Rationals in their prime share an emotional bond to the combo that the rest of us can never fully comprehend. However, the recorded evidence, as presented on our long-awaited deluxe 2 CD Rationals anthology, speaks for itself.

“Think Rational!” collects together for the first time the sides the Rationals cut between 1965 and 1968 under the auspices of their manager and mentor, the enigmatic Hugh “Jeep” Holland. Right from the start, the Rationals were somehow more mature than the average teenage garage band. The Kinks and the Zombies moves heard on early singles morphed into the full-blooded garage soul of their 1966-68 era, whereby the Rationals became the American analogue to the Small Faces or Winwood-era Spencer Davis Group. They sported a muscular, dependable rhythm section in Terry Trabandt and Bill Figg, further fuelled by the incisive, corrosive southpaw lead/rhythm of Steve Correll, and fronted by the multi-faceted abilities of Scott Morgan, one of rock’s most unselfconsciously authentic blue-eyed soul voices.

Ultimately, only the lack of a prolific songwriting team held them back. It is as interpreters that they are best remembered. The band’s two most successful records were covers of Otis Redding’s ‘Respect’ and Chuck Jackson’s ‘I Need You’. The unique arrangement of the former suffers from over-familiarity with Aretha’s subsequent chartbuster; the heartbreaking tenor of the latter could hush the crowd at even the famously “high energy” Grande Ballroom in Detroit – no less than Jackie Wilson informed the band, “you guys just cut Chuck!” Thanks to Jeep’s instruction, the Rationals’ arrangements of R&B stage faves such as ‘Leavin’ Here’, Little Richard’s ‘Poor Dog’ and Sam Hawkins’ ‘Hold On Baby’ are definitive. And their reading of ‘Temptation’s ‘Bout To Get Me’, as heard here, is pure, soulful magic.

A great sense of personal satisfaction comes with the release of “Think Rational!” Over a decade in the making, the band members had long despaired of seeing their best work gain legitimate release, so it is a tremendous honour for me as compiler to see the project to fruition, with all the rightful pieces in place. In addition to all the Rationals singles on A-Square and Cameo, we hear the rare promo 45 cut for a Detroit mens clothing store, as well as tracks from the legendary1968 fan club LP (two known test pressings), for a total of almost twenty unreleased tracks, along with a jam-packed 24-page booklet. “Think Rational!” indeed finally accords the Rationals the “respect” that they have so long deserved.

Note: we hope to feature the Rationals’ post-A-Square recordings in a subsequent Big Beat package.

Rumblers - It's A Gas
Boss! When Californian group the Rumblers hit the American charts with their single ‘Boss’ in February 1963 the word, used locally by the surfing community to describe anything they regarded as cool, was adopted by teenagers across the nation. This word-association with surf culture, and the concurrent success of the group’s label-mates the Chantays with their Top 5 hit ‘Pipeline’, led to the Rumblers being classified by many as a surf group. But this was far from the truth. With Joe Houston’s ‘All Night Long’ as their theme song they were a sharp R&B band, described by their bass player Wayne Matteson as a black group with white skin: “We did a lot of James Brown tunes … We dressed well, and we had all of our songs choreographed.”

Naming themselves after Link Wray’s 1958 hit ‘Rumble’, the group’s first release paired the instrumentals ‘Stomping Time’ and ‘Intersection’ on the small Highland label which secured them sessions at the famed studio in Downey, California attached to Wenzel’s Music Town record store. Here, a take-off of the Strangers’ 1959 hit ‘Caterpillar Crawl’ evolved into the number they named ‘Boss’. And no wonder it became a hit, the opening bars carry one of the all-time catchiest intros. A frantically whammied low note from guitarist Mike Kelishes precedes a four-to-the-bar bass drum beat that is developed into a hypnotic riff by bass guitar, building in intensity as first guitars and then sax join in. Half a dozen bars of primal pounding and you’re hooked. Simple, but oh so effective.

A couple of early Rumblers compilation CDs have long since become sought after collector’s items, but “It’s A Gas!” surpasses them all by being a far more comprehensive selection. And in true Ace fashion it is taken direct from the best sources bringing vastly improved sound quality. The accompanying booklet features an informative essay from compiler Brian Nevill telling the full story of the group plus loads of never-before-seen pictures from the collections of the Rumblers themselves. In addition to the best of the group’s singles for Downey and Dot and selections from their “Boss” LP, there are CD debuts for both sides of the Highland single and a later 45 released under the name of the Interns. If that wasn’t enough there are no less than 10 tracks new to a Rumblers CD including four totally unreleased recordings in the shape of ‘Warhead’, ‘Why Did You Make Me Cry’, ‘Freight Train’ and ‘Strawboss’.

With all their best in one package, “It’s A Gas!” is the definitive collection of the Rumblers and is a compilation that surf and instrumental fans will find irresistible – it’s a boss gas, man!

The Witch EP collects four gems from the group’s quintessential Etiquette catalogue, and features for the first time on wax, the rare “switchblade” version of ‘The Witch’, with Larry Parypa scraping metal across his guitar strings to menacing effect. Also making its vinyl debut is the full-length recording of the band’s bloodcurdling ‘Psycho’ direct from the studio master tape.

In recent years the Sonics’ pounding take on Richard Berry’s ‘Have Love Will Travel’ has become their biggest box-office item, having appeared upon countless TV commercials and soundtracks around the world. Rounding out this very special Witch EP is the original, classic take of the title cut.

Housed in a handsome sleeve featuring a rare colour picture from an unused session intended to promote the original Witch single, shot by famed Northwest photographer Jini Dellaccio, The Sonics’ Witch EP is an essential item for any fan of this unsurpassed rock’n’roll combo.
