David Axelrod

David Axelrod delivered one of the great psychedelic albums with 1968’s Song of Innocence, based around the poetry of William Blake. It is considered by many his masterpiece. Song of Innocence is this weird hybrid that no one, not even Axelrod himself, could ever really describe. The listener is pulled in by his melodies, simplistic at first blush, but colored by odd chord progressions and turn arounds, grounded by the drummer Earl Palmer and Carol Kaye’s funk, torn between the juxtaposition of musical elements – a jazz vibraphone solo here, a fuzz guitar tear here, a nod to the baroque in Don Randi’s clavichord comps – and put at ease, always, by Axe’s arrangements, which utilize brass and strings in a way that no 1960s arranger did. It’s worth noting that there are really count-on-your-hand examples of anything that might even be compared to Song of Innocence. Perhaps Arthur Verocai’s self-titled and only artist album, issued on the Brasilian Continental label in 1972, or the collaborations between Serge Gainsbourg and Jean Claude Vannier, which found their epitome in 1971’s Histoire de Melody Nelson. But even these albums, superb, in any thinking music fan’s canon of the best from this era, perhaps in their lives - and perhaps in line with Song of Innocence - are one-offs. Axelrod’s Song of Innocence set in path a series of artist albums on Capitol and other labels and influenced the world countless times over, from The Verve to DJ Shadow to Madlib to J.Dilla.
Remastered from the original tapes in a new transfer, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.

The Beau Brummels

The Beau Brummels, taking their name from George Bryan "Beau" Brummell, who was a model dandy in British society in the 1800s, originally formed in San Francisco in 1964. The band's debut single, "Laugh Laugh" helped break them into the mainstream and would later be cited as helping to establish the San Francisco Sound. By 1968, Sal Valentine (lead vocals) and guitarist Ron Elliottt were a duo when they stepped into Owen Bradley's studio in Mt. Juliet, TN, about a half hour outside Nashville. With legendary producer Lenny Waronker in tow and backed by some of Nashville's finest session musicians, they conjured up an intimate and heartbreaking final stop on their five year journey from British-folk rockers to alternative country obscurity. What they created was like nothing else and has stood the test of time. This deluxe expanded edition for Record Store Day pulls together the homespun, inviting and timeless music created in Bradley's Barn and adds a bonus LP of demo recordings that are finally making their debut on vinyl.

SIDE A: "Turn Around", "An Added Attraction", "Deep Water", "Long Walking Down To Misery", "Little Bird", "Cherokee Girl"  SIDE B: "I'm A Sleeper", "The Loneliest Man In Town", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down", "Jessica", "Bless You California" SIDE C: "Lift Me (Alternate Take)", "I Love You Mama (Alternate Take)", "Just A Little Bit of Lovin' (Demo)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Another", "High There", "Black Crow (Stereo Demo)", "Deep Water (Alternate Version)" SIDE D: "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (Alternate Mix)", "Jessica (Alternate Take)", "Bittersweet", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "Long Black Veil" "Confessions (Demo)"

"Yeah Yeah"

New 12" Vinyl: $13.99 Buy

"Yeah, Yeah", by the mysterious Memphis underground group Blackrock, was originally recorded in 1969 and released as a 45 RPM 7" single. It's become a cult classic and been sampled by artists such as The Black Keys, Royce Da 5'9, The Roots, and Snow. (It's believed that Jay-Z also recorded a track featuring the sample which has never been released.)  Formed by two session musicians from Stax Records (Archie Turner, Cornell McFadden)  and two session musicians from Hi Records (Willie Pettis, Kurt Dudley), Blackrock appeared for a short time on the Memphis music scene, and it's believed that they first performed at the 1970 Memphis Country Blues Festival at what was then the Overton Park Shell, sharing the line-up with Sid Selvidge, Electric Blues Watermelon, Furry Lewis and Bukka White, among others. They recorded two incredible sides of a 45 single for the Select-O-Hits label in North Memphis. "Yeah, Yeah" was an amazing slab of funk with a rock-hard foundation of drumming provided by McFadden. The flip side "Bad Cloud Overhead" was more dark and foreboding, with lyrics about the drug culture and "gettin busted." Both singles were edited out of a longer continuous performance that had been recorded. Both appear on this RSD 2018 release, along with an extended version of "Yeah Yeah" and an unreleased track.

Chainsaw Kittens

'First released on by James Iha and D'arcy Wretsky's Smashing Pumpkins offshoot label Scratchie Records in 1996, the Chainsaw Kittens' self-titled album was never officially released on vinyl. For the album, the Oklahoma four-piece enlisted the help of The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd along with the help of a number of violinists and orchestra members, successfully making the album their most commercially successful. The Chainsaw Kittens toured with the album for over three years, selling out stadiums and theaters with bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, who often cite the Kittens as an early influence, along with Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Of the album, AllMusic says "the overall feeling of the album is more melancholy and thoughtful than any previous one, capturing the sense of sadness and desperation...". For this first ever official release of the album on vinyl, a wealth of archival material has been drudged up, including never before seen live photos and art which will be included in an inner booklet. The album cover will be a full-color gatefold with newly created artwork by award winning Flaming Lips designer George Salisbury. Vinyl will be pressed at Archer Record Pressing in Detroit, MI with 1000 LPs pressed on red vinyl and 1000 LPs pressed on black vinyl. 100 randomly inserted copies will contain an original press photo, newly autographed by the band.

Stef Chura

In 2017, Detroit’s Stef Chura released her debut album, Messes, to widespread acclaim. Stereogum wrote, "In Messes, you can hear the idea that DIY rock music can be as warm and friendly and melodic as any other kind of music.” Pitchfork called Stef’s lyrics "poetic and sharply rendered,” and said the album "falls just right, like a stretched-out sweater with holes in the collar.” Since Messes came out, Stef toured relentlessly, signed with Saddle Creek, and even found time to record some songs with Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest fame. Those songs can be found on the Record Store Day exclusive 7” Degrees / Sour Honey, available April 21st at your favorite independent record store.

Can I Borrow A Dollar?

New Vinyl: $44.99 Buy

While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Angeles.  Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?.  Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks.  It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor.  Long out-of-print, Can I Borrow A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last.  This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”.

Curved Air

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a strictly limited edition Picture Disc LP of Curved Air's classic 1970 debut album "Air Conditioning". Originally issued on the Warner Bros. label in November 1970, "Air Conditioning" showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album "A Rainbow in Curved Air" by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today', 'Propositions', 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations', "Air Conditioning" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands. Issued as THE first rock picture disc LP on its original release, this new picture disc edition has been cut at Abbey Road Studios and is a fitting tribute to a classic album by a legendary band.
