    The Big Huge

    Wee Tam and The Big Huge were originally released in 1968 as both a double LP in the UK, and individually as two separate albums in the US. They mark a creative high point for the band that is only matched by their other 1968 masterpiece, The Hangmans Beautiful Daughter.


    Produced, as always, by the legendary Joe Boyd, these albums feature some of the bands best, and most accessible song writing. While Hangmans and The 5000 Spirits may have been considered more revolutionary at the time, Wee Tam and The Big Huge have aged considerably better and many considered them to be the bands finest work. Reissued here in their original US form as individual LPs on 180g vinyl with a deluxe tip-on jacket.

    The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter

    If any musical combo ever meshed perfectly with the times it was the Incredible String Band. And here's the proof: 1968's The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter on deep-grooved, 180-gram vinyl. The wildly eclectic Scottish folk outfit -with the airy vocals and fretboard prowess of Robin Williamson and Mike Heron as its two constant-began life resurrecting wondrous and ancient Celtic ballads, then was transformed by the perfumed winds of 1967's psychedelic revolution to add sitar, oud, gimbri and all manner of exotic axes to its arsenal. The result is a gently mesmerizing psychedelia and anti-folk stance-consummate counterpoint to current psych heroes like Mogwai and Beachwood Sparks -that makes perfectly clear why the Incredible String Band remains just that: Incredible!

    Hapshash and the Coloured Coat

    Featuring The Human Host And The Heavy Metal Kids


    One of the most sought-after of all '60s cult LPs, 1967's Hapshash and the Coloured Coat Featuring the Human Host and the Heavy Metal Kids is the sort of record that could only have emerged during the psychedelic era, and a vibrant manifestation of that period's freewheeling boundary-breaking spirit of adventure.


    Hapshash and the Coloured Coat, the English duo of Michael English and Nigel Weymouth, initially achieved notoriety as a graphic design team whose distinctive visual sensibility placed them at the center of London's original psychedelic explosion. The pair's vivid visual imagination spawned numerous album covers, including Cream's Disraeli Gears, and countless posters promoting performances at London's legendary UFO Club by such acts as Pink Floyd and the Incredible String Band. Those visual works brilliantly captured the London scene's buoyant, mind-expanding vibe, and feature some of the psychedelic era's most arresting imagery.


    Such was Hapshash & the Coloured Coat's prominence and influence that, in 1967, they were given the opportunity to branch out as a recording act. For the occasion, English and Weymouth teamed with legendary producer/manager/DJ/scenester Guy Stevens, whose lengthy resume encompasses work with the Rolling Stones, Procol Harum, Mott the Hoople and The Clash.


    The result was Hapshash & the Coloured Coat Featuring the Human Host and the Heavy Metal Kids. The unlikely collaboration produced a one-of-a-kind sonic experience that exemplifies the spirit of psychedelia while sounding like no other record of its time, mixing primal vocal chants and insistent tribal rhythms with proto-funk guitar and bluesy piano on such memorably titled tracks as H-O-P-P Why?, The New Messiah Coming 1985, Empires of the Sun and A Mind Blown Is a Mind Shown.


    Out of print on vinyl for decades and never before reissued domestically, Hapshash & the Coloured Coat featuring the Human Host & the Heavy Metal Kids has been meticulously restored for this LP reissue, using Sundazed's usual exacting standards. The album is pressed on high-quality audiophile vinyl, and features complete original cover art.

    The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful

    Mastered by Joe Reagoso with Kevin Gray from the Original Kama Sutra Stereo Tapes & Manufactured at R.T.I!



    The legendary pop/rock superstars The Lovin' Spoonful (John B. Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Steve Boone and Joe Butler) set the music world on fire back in the '60s. With a ton of television appearances, massive concert tours and of course an amazing string of hit singles and albums, The Lovin' Spoonful to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.



    In 1967, Kama Sutra Records honored these hugely popular rockers with their first hits album simply titled The Best Of the Lovin' Spoonful. Filled with a treasure trove of number one and top charting singles and hit album tracks from their first three smash albums, this incredible LP also hit the upper rungs of the album charts the Summer of Love 1967.

As one of the more collectible albums in their Kama Sutra Records catalog, The Best Of The Lovin' Spoonful has been out of print for many years, making it an instant collector's item, which hasn't seen the light of day for over four decades, that is until now!

    The Incredible String Band

    The Incredible String Band is the debut album by the Folk band of the same name, released in 1966. It is the only one of the band's albums to feature the original trio line-up with Clive Palmer as well as Robin Williamson and Mike Heron.


    They recorded the album at the Sound Techniques studio in Chelsea, London in one afternoon in May 1966, with Joe Boyd as producer. Boyd insisted on focusing on the group's own self-written material, rather than the traditional songs and tunes which they had also been performing, and with each performer singing his own material.


    The album showcased the trio's abilities on a variety of instruments, although the instrumentation is relatively orthodox compared to the band's later work. All three members played guitar and sang, with Palmer also playing banjo and kazoo and Williamson playing mandolin, banjo, tin whistle and fiddle/violin.

    Acoustic Sessions

    Acoustic Sessions is the debut from The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl) on their own home-grown label Chimera Music. Like a chimera itself, a mythical two-headed creature, the G.O.A.S.T.T. work from one heart despite having two separate minds. Acoustic Sessions shows their love of quirky and whimsical '60s folk pop, reminiscent at times of Syd Barrett, the Incredible String Band and Simon & Garfunkel. G.O.A.S.T.T. weaves narratives around metaphysical geography of their own devising, finding a surrealist beauty in the mundane. Like Dali's imaginary landscapes, their world is a beguiling wonderland that makes for one stunning debut.

    We Should Be Dead Together

    You can feel the act of creation in every note or creak or cadence and it is intoxicating. The results are not overtly folk or psych or pop or rock yet they appeal to all of those senses at once. It is odd to have an 11-track EP. Even more strange is to organize it as one track followed by 10 tracks, as is done on the sleeve, especially when it plays out in a more traditional order in practice. But everything about Savaging Spires seems to go against convention. A band that All Music likened to Animal Collective and the Incredible String Band jamming on found instruments at The Residents' house, with Mark Kozelek as guest vocalist never ceases to surprise. This continues their habit of producing amazing results in front of a microphone, as their self-titled debut was considered by many to be an instant cult classic. Recalling the glory days of pastoral psychedelia according to The Wire and it found heavy rotation in the US on KALX, WFMU, WNYU, KVRX and many others.

    Drunk Is The New Sober/Stupid Is The New Dumb

    Drunk Is The New Sober and Stupid Is The New Dumb are the twin subtitles of Drunk & Stupid, Dots Will Echo's debut album on Asthmatic Kitty, but those aren't just arch witticisms, they encapsulate the apparent contradictions that power the New Jersey duo's music. The warmly weird world created by multi-instrumentalist Nick Berry and drummer Kurt Biroc seems simultaneously sacred and profane, edgy and accessible, sad and transcendently silly. What else would you expect from a group that describes itself as "dour moralizers and drunken assholes" and identifies its key influences as "A little bit The Incredible String Band, a little bit AC/DC?"



    "I can see the carnival lights from here," sings Berry in a half-crazed, half-elated tone at the beginning of the opening track, "I Like It," sounding like either a psychotic infatuated with his own attractive fantasy world or a genius inventor marveling at the luminous landscape he's created. It's up to the listener to decide which, but either way it's 100% Dots Will Echo.



    Everything on Drunk & Stupid was played by Berry and Biroc, with the basic tracks recorded in a single marathon, three-day session. "I meant this to be a very raw recording, capturing the way we sound live," says Berry, who plays everything from guitars and keyboards to Autoharp, glockenspiel, and Andean charango over the course of the album, as he and Biroc build their own beautifully ramshackle universe from the ground up before your very ears.



    "A poorly played violin can sound better than a well played piano," says Berry half-jokingly of the organic, offhand feel of the tracks. From the first moment, Drunk & Stupid makes the listener a fly on the wall for a day in the life of Dots Will Echo, with snatches of goofy studio chatter interspersed between tunes. The bit that leads into the crooked campfire singalong "I'm a Monkey" is particularly telling, as Berry spontaneously announces, "I want to try a song I dreamt the other night," Biroc disapprovingly asks, "In the studio?" and Berry blithely counters, "Yeah, why not?"



    In fact, Berry dreams a large percentage of his songs. "Some are stupid, but I let 'em fly anyway," he says self-deprecatingly, "but the really stupid ones, nobody's ever gonna hear." By the time they enter our waking world, Berry's tunes bear trace elements of psychedelia, power pop, field-recording folk, DIY post-punk, and tantalizingly trashy garage rock (the duo does in fact rehearse in Biroc's garage). "What You Tryin' To Do," for instance, comes off like Sister Lovers-era Big Star recording for Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music, while the giddy blastoff of "Rocket Girl" evokes early XTC covered by Guided By Voices, and the fragile, almost-ominous beauty of the hushed, acoustic ballad "Gates of Eden" feels like the greatest song Neil Young never wrote for Galaxie 500.



    The black humor that inhabits an impressive amount of real estate in the Dots Will Echo neighborhood isn't the whistling-through-the-graveyard variety, but rather the kind that finds all of creation to be a bit of a knee-slapper. Like the great writers in every medium, Berry finds the human dilemma a source of endless hilarity, even though you can always hear the big, gently bruised heart beating at the core of every song on Drunk & Stupid. Berry sounds like an amphetamine-fueled tour guide as he walks us through a field of mankind's folly on "Seven Deadly Sins," his loopy lyrics punctuated by Captain Beefheart-esque bursts of six-string cubism.



    Even when things get apocalyptic, as on the minimalist stomp of the cautionary "Shitstorm," Berry exhibits so much obvious glee in announcing the impending arrival of the titular phenomenon that you can't help singing "there's a shitstorm coming" right along with him and bobbing your head randomly to the track's triumphantly spastic anti-groove. The deceptively mellow-sounding anthem of global dystopia "History's Grave" was written in early 2008, but Berry notes, "Since then many of the events mentioned or alluded to have come to pass. This made me feel a little bit like a character in a Stephen King novel."



    At the same time, Drunk & Stupid sports songs like "Be a Friend" and "So Deep the Night," lambent, low-key ballads that balance between bittersweet and unabashedly sentimental without ever turning mawkish. On these tracks, the Lennon-like undertone in Berry's voice rises to the top of the mix, tapping into an almost spiritual vibe and making for some of the most undeniably poignant moments on the album.



    Berry and Biroc, who also work together at the same day job (the drummer is Berry's boss), have been making music together since 2004, hashing out their ideas in Biroc's garage and documenting them in Berry's basement studio. Along the way, they've made unofficial micro-pressings of their work, mostly for passing around to friends and admirers in an ad hoc fashion, but Drunk & Stupid represents the first time the duo's freewheeling work has ever been properly presented to the public at large as a full-on album. With all the material the prolific pair has been stockpiling, they had a huge tally of tunes to haul along with them for this project, and hearing it is a little like stumbling for the first time into a lost world with a long legacy of its own rituals, relics, regalia, and history. But once you wander in, you can't imagine how you ever existed without it.



    Originally meant to be two separate discs (the vinyl version is a double LP with download codes for bonus tracks), Drunk & Stupid is a wild ride that clocks in at just under 80 minutes and boasts 19 songs overflowing with insanely catchy melodies, endearingly off-kilter arrangements, and a strangely satisfying blend of the divine and the absurd." As Berry says, "We try to allow for the will of the universe to have a large part in our music. There must be something sacred in mistakes. This is our explanation for being fuck-ups."

    Turks. The eleven track LP includes previous releases "Girl" and "Sleep
    Sound" as well as forthcoming single "Loud Places," which features vocals
    from Romy Madley Croft.


    The release of In Colour comes on the back of an incredible six year

    of acclaimed productions in recent years including debut solo single "Far
    Nearer," remixes for the likes of Adele, Radiohead and Florence & The
    Machine, production work for Drake and Alicia Keys plus We're New
    Here - Jamie's seminal reworking of Gil Scott-Heron's final studio album -
    hinted at what was to come.


    With In Colour - a bold, celebratory, emotional record that features collaborations
    with The xx band mates Romy Madley Croft ("Seesaw" and
    "Loud Places") and Oliver Sim ("Stranger In A Room"), Young Thug and

    Several Shades Of Why

    In the quarter century since he founded Dinosaur Jr., J Mascis has created some of the era's signature songs, albums and styles. The laconically-based roar of his guitar, drums and vocals have driven a long string of bands such as Deep Wound, Dinosaur Jr., Gobblehoof, Velvet Monkeys, the Fog, Witch, Sweet Apple and he has also guested on innumerable sessions. But Several Shades of Why, recorded at Amherst, Massachusetts' Bisquiteen Studios, is J's first solo studio record, and it is an album of incredible beauty, performed with a delicacy not always associated with his work.


    Nearly all acoustic, Several Shades of Why was created with the help of a few friends. Notable amongst them are Kurt Vile, Sophie Trudeau (A Silver Mount Zion), Kurt Fedora (long-time collusionist), Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), Matt Valentine (The Golden Road), and Suzanne Thorpe (Wounded Knees).


    Together in small mutable groupings, they conjure up classic sounds ranging from English-tinged folk to drifty, West Coast-style singer/songwriters. But every track, every note even, bears that distinct Mascis watermark, both in the shape of the tunes and the glorious rasp of the vocals. Ten brilliant tunes that quietly grow and expand until they fill your brain with the purest pleasure.

    Records: Greatest Hits

    Very First Time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl


    Mastered Impeccably from the Original Atlantic Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood


    The legendary rockers Foreigner set the music world on fire back in 1977 with their superstar brand of rock and roll. Augmented with the brilliant musicianship of founding members Mick Jones and Lou Gramm, their initial offerings would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come. For their next four smash albums, Foreigner, Double Vision, Head Games and Foreigner 4, the singles and hit album tracks would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts as these masterpiece albums would become classic rock manna for the ages. Their performances were of legendary proportion, which still makes them one of the most successful live acts of the classic rock era. With massive radio airplay and of course an amazing string of top chart singles and number one albums, Foreigner to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.


    After delivering a plethora of hits in rapid succession for Atlantic Records, the label honored this hugely popular band with their incredible greatest hits album simply titled Records. Filled with a treasure trove of chart topping singles and hit album tracks from their first four smash albums, this incredible 1982 effort awarded these rock legends with one of the biggest greatest hits albums ever released, with over seven million units sold!


    No stone is left unturned, as this 10 track masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit with smashes like Cold As Ice, Double Vision, Urgent, Long, Long Way From Home, and Head Games. As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Records includes even more significant hit tracks like the beautiful Lou Gramm/Mick Jones masterpiece Waiting For A Girl Like You and more hard rock classic hits like Hot Blooded, Juke Box Hero and the one that started it all Feels Like The First Time. All in all, a collection of songs which took the fans by storm, forever associating the title superstars to the Foreigner franchise.

    Beneath The Brine (Awaiting Repress)


    "One of the exciting new bands we recently discovered is The Family
    Crest. The Headwinds, blends rock, classical, folk, and jazz, and is an
    immediately compelling listen." - WXPN


    "The San Francisco-born collective arm themselves with sharp strings,
    galloping percussion, and an ambition wide enough to swallow you
    whole. Dive in... - SPIN


    Following on the heels of last summer's The Headwinds EP (which earned
    fans in WXPN and Paste), Beneath the Brine shows that singer Liam
    McCormick's ambition was well placed. The expansive breadth of arrangments - from dark, classical romanticism ("Beneath the Brine") to horn-laden sounds akin to the Roaring 20s ("Howl") - are complemented by the
    incredible range of McCormick's voice. Beneath the Brine also showcases
    The Family Crest's ability to infuse pop into complex arrangements, with
    songs like "Love Don't Go" and "The World." The album is a sweeping
    soundscape befitting the oceanic theme of the title and what SPIN notes as
    "ambition wide enough to swallow you whole."

    Third

    Third is the first studio album from Portishead in over ten years so it's about as highly anticipated as it gets! The album incorporates a lot of samples and synthesizers and drum tracks meld seamlessly with violins and pianos. Haunting, emotional, moody, raw and modern, Third is an incredible record.


    Portishead was formed in Bristol, U.K. in 1991 by Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley. After releasing a short film entitled To Kill A Dead Man and its accompanying music, they were signed to a record deal with Go! Beat Records.


    Portisheads first album, Dummy, was released in 1994 and the first single was Numb. The album was successful in both Europe and the United States (where it sold more than 150,000 copies even before the band toured there). Dummy spawned two hit singles, Glory Box and Sour Times, and went on to win the prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 1995. After their initial success, Portishead withdrew from the spotlight for three years until their second and self titled album, Portishead, was released in 1997. The albums sound differed from Dummy, the main differences being that much of the music was composed and played by the band, not sampled from records, and had a grainy, harsher sound. Three singles, Cowboys, Over and All Mine were released, the latter achieving a Top 10 placing in the U.K. In 1997, the band performed a one-off show with strings by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at Roseland Ballroom in New York. A live album primarily featuring these new orchestral arrangements of the groups songs was released in 1998. For the next few years, the band members concentrated on solo and other pursuits, until in February 2005, the band appeared live for the first time in seven years at the Tsunami Benefit Concert in Bristol.

    Fern Girl And Ice Man

    The Lowest Pair had been planning to release a new record in the Spring
    of 2016. So, in early 2015, Palmer convinced Kendl to spend a winter in
    Minnesota, with the temptation of working with local greats Dave
    Simonett and Erik Koskinen on the new material. The duo then set off on
    what would be a successful season of touring their second, critically acclaimed
    album, The Sacred Heart Sessions (Spin: "solemn and
    humble;" The Bluegrass Situation: "deeply felt"), and a new-old-time
    record, I Reckon I'm Fixin' On Kickin' Round To Pick A Little. In the fall,
    returning to the midwest to finish up the recordings they had begun a
    few months prior, Kendl and Palmer found themselves with a whole new
    batch of songs ready to lay down. After much deliberation, they
    ambitiously decided the two collections should be released together in
    2016.


    The new records, Fern Girl and Ice Man, as well as Uncertain As It Is
    Uneven, could be viewed as two windows into the growing and changing
    world of The Lowest Pair. Uncertain stays the course of their previous
    releases, being focused on stripped down, intimate arrangements to
    support their timeless songwriting and haunting vocals. Fern Girl is a
    more moody and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new studio
    production directions, and what it might sound like for The Lowest Pair
    to be supported by a full band, while keeping one foot planted in the
    rootsy aesthetics which drew them together from the beginning.
    Kendl Winter, born in Arkansas, moved to Olympia, Washington after
    high school, drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively and thriving
    music scene. She put three solo records out on Olympia's indie label, K
    Records, and performed in nationally-touring northwest string bands
    before beginning The Lowest Pair in 2013 with Palmer T. Lee. Palmer
    built his first banjo when he was 19 from pieces he serendipitously
    inherited. Shortly after deciding songwriting would be the most effective
    and enjoyable medium for his musings, he began cutting his teeth
    fronting Minneapolis string bands and touring the midwest festival
    circuit, which is where he and Kendl first met, on the banks of the
    Mississippi.


    So, back to that Spring of 2016 plan: with little attention to tedious
    practicalities and with an eye focused securely on delivering to their
    growing fan base a truly special treat; a rootsy, bluegrassy, old-timish
    version of meiosis has happened, as one new album became two new
    albums.


    Fans already know that the chemistry between Palmer's Midwestern
    charm, those long winters spent listening to a steady diet of Townes Van
    Zandt and John Hartford, and Kendl's poetic and playful way with
    words, her unique approach to the banjo (just listen to "Dreaming Of
    Babylon"), and her barefoot-in-the-cool-river-water mystique combine to
    make a powerful sound, but what's new in 2016 is both the inclusion of
    those non-banjo sounds (harmonica, drum, bass, violin) and an
    incredible expansion of their songbook. In a way, two records, the playful
    and the hush, the dark and the rooted, the pillow and the nightmare, the
    pin drop and the starry night; the juxtaposition of the ups and downs
    that are experiences in a day, in a year, in a minute, all this has
    demanded from the band more than just "a new record." Fern Girl and
    Ice Man and Uncertain As It Is Uneven mark the arrival of America's
    next great musical duo, and it's over the course of these two albums that
    that boast becomes clearly rooted in truth.

    Dig

    Taking up from where iconic bands like Deep Purple and Bad Company have left off, Heaven & Earth is on a mission to resurrect the sanctity of classic rock in its purest, most accessible form on their third studio album titled Dig. Dig was produced by Dave Jenkins-who's turned the knobs for everyone from Metallica to Tower of Power-and features special guests Howard Leese (Heart, Paul Rodgers), Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) and David Paich (Toto).


    Heaven & Earth-guitarist Stuart Smith, singer Joe Retta, bassist Chuck Wright, drummer Richie Onori and keyboardist Arlan Schierbaum-fuse elements of hard rock, blues and bits of classical with bravado and a razor-sharp focus.


    As the band's founder and visionary, Smith says about Dig, "I feel that with the crafting of the songs on this album, the incredible band we've put together, especially with powerhouse vocalist Joe Retta and the unwavering support of Quarto Valley Records' President, Bruce Quarto, we really have a shot at getting Heaven & Earth the attention it deserves. This album is by far, the best thing I have ever done in my life!"


    The British-born guitarist spent the 70's bending strings with numerous groups before he distinguished himself by making the acquaintance of Deep Purple's Ritchie Blackmore, who mentored the up-and-coming musician. "I'm probably one of the few people in the world who grew up with a poster of someone on their wall, ended up meeting them, becoming friends with them, and getting mentored by them," Smith notes. At the urging of Blackmore, Smith migrated to Los Angeles where the seeds for Heaven & Earth were planted. The band released two critically acclaimed albums-Heaven & Earth Featuring Stuart Smith (1994) and Windows to the World (2000)-which helped advance Smith's musical vision. Now, with Dig complete, the guitarist says Heaven & Earth is a true band, an energized collective of like-minded musicians who are excited at bringing its unique, celestial brand of rock to audiences all over the world in 2013. "All the pieces are in place," he explains with graceful candor. "We're ready to make this our year."


    All the backing tracks on Dig were recorded at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California, and all the overdubs were done at the band's own Wine Cellar Studios in Woodland Hills, California. To further refine the record's sonic reach, Jenkins used a Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor (CLASP), a device that integrates real analog tape recording into digital tools like Pro Tools to create a warm and vintage sound. Both Van Halen and Aerosmith enlisted a CLASP on their most recent albums.

    One of the most unique, original and unusual rock bands to burst onto the alternative scene in the 90s, Morphine was originally formed by vocalist/ bassist Mark Sandman, saxophonist Dana Colley and drummer Jerome Deupree (later replaced by Billy Conway) in Cambridge, Mass in 1989. They expertly combined blues, jazz and rock elements into a very distinct style, anchored by Sandman's deep, crooning, beat-style vocals. Rather than having an electric guitar as the focal point like most rock bands, the trio's sound was built around Sandman's two-string electric bass (often deployed with a slide) and Colley's growling, baritone sax which they dubbed as low-rock.

    The band enjoyed critical acclaim but saw mixed results commercially. In the States, they were embraced on public and college radio and MTV's 120 Minutes but received little to no support from commercial rock radio or other music TV programming. They did enjoy much higher profile success overseas, especially in Belgium, Portugal France and Australia where they were featured on music television programming frequently and filled much larger venues.

    After five studio albums and extensive touring, Morphine disbanded after Mark tragically died of a heart attack performing on stage at the Giardini del Principe in Palestrina, Italy. Surviving members have soldiered on in various incarnations, the most recent being the Vapors of Morphine that will be on tour through the summer of 2017.

    Morphine was an incredibly dynamic and highly improvisational band in concert, yet released only one live album in their career. Live At The Warfield 1997 will right the ship by shedding light on a fantastic live rock n' roll document that has gone unheard for 20 years â€" and Mark Sandman was a stickler for fidelity of their documented live performances so this music was expertly recorded showcasing amazing room ambience.

    Yes... The Monkees Could Play Guitars, Bass, Drums, Piano, Steel Guitar, Organ, Banjo, Tambourine, Percussion..... and Play Them Well!!!

    In 1967 after two number one albums, a plethora of hit singles and a smash television show, The Monkees were on top and knew they each had true musical talents not championed by their label executives. Michael Nesmith spearheaded a change in direction before sessions began on their legendary Headquarters album. This action resulted in the much-covered dissolution with music mogul Don Kirshner, as Chip Douglas (The Turtles) was now recruited by Nesmith to work with the band.

    In rapid succession, things began to fall into place in February 1967. With initial tracks like country rocker Sunny Girlfriend, the band set the stage for what would become one of the most loved works in their catalog and one of the finest rock albums of a generation. A definite album opener, You Told Me begins Headquarters. The track features a brilliant 12 string guitar of Nesmith, as Tork's incredible banjo fills the track alongside Dolenz's driving drum work. With Jones' percussion, it became the very first song that many of us remember as we opened up our new copies back in the summer of '67. Not straying too far from previous success, the band scored a few more of Boyce and Hart compositions like Micky Dolenz's folk rock ballad I'll Spend My Life With You. The solid steel guitar work of Mike Nesmith became somewhat of a precursor to his groundbreaking Nashville sessions in the late sixties. Davy Jones has several watershed moments here with both Forget That Girl and Early Morning Blues and Greens Forget That Girl employs a unique English northern soul vibe, while the latter shares a wonderful rhythm presentation making it one of the more psychedelic infused and standout tracks on the LP. Michael Nesmith's handiwork is radiant on the entire album. You May Just Be The One rocks the album into full gear and makes it one of his and the bands' definitive landmark tracks. Headquarters also brought rightful acclaim to Peter Tork, as his first recorded Monkees' song For Pete's Sake soon became a prolific standard. The song transcended with the times and became one of the more insightful tunes from the quartet. It also replaced the familiar Monkees Theme at the end of season two, giving the song more TV exposure over the years. And as always, you can count on Micky Dolenz to deliver - whether it's his hard rock driving drum work on rockers like Randy Scouse Git & No Time, or his prog-rock feel on Mr. Webster, the album was definitely a great showcase for the artist.

    The Monkees' Headquarters was one of 4 albums of The Monkees that topped the charts in 1967. This fact alone is enough to warrant the importance of this album in musical history. But there are other amazing feats that Headquarters managed to deliver to millions of fans on its eventful release back in May of 1967. The album hit the stores before Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. Friendly rivals as they were, Headquarters rose to number one and also opened the door to The Summer of Love. It remained in the upper rung of the retail charts until their fourth platter Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. became a number one album to close out the year. Wow! Most notably, Headquarters showed the real world the transition of four talented guys on a hit TV show evolving into a self-produced, self-reliant, and one of the most loved bands in musical history, and yes, they could actually play their instruments .and they did it well!
