  1. Modern Harmonic is reissuing this on green vinyl.
  2. A time capsule of atomic-age country, radioactive rockabilly, and other-worldly melodies! Sheldon Allman (the singing voice of Mr. Ed!) brings you this long-out-of-print bunker full of uranium-charged songs about space and destruction. Features “Crawl Out Through The Fallout” as heard in Fallout 4! Modern Harmonic proudly resurrects this wonderfully mystifying LP on plutonium green vinyl! http://www.modernharmonic.com/sheldon-allman-folk-songs-for-the-21st-century-lp.aspx
  3. The preorder is here. It was legendary record producer Alan Lorber that came up with the concept of "The Bosstown Sound" -- "The Sound Heard 'Round The World" to market and promote the best and brightest of the Bean Town sixties psychedelic scene. (Boston's key groups at the time included Orpheus, Beacon Street Union, Ultimate Spinach, Chamaeleon Church and others). The Ultimate Spinach, arguably the finest of them all, produced magnificent examples of surreal psychedelic record-making, now prized by crate-diggers and outsider music fans alike. The Spinach's self-titled debut album is now considered a psychedelic classic, but it's the group's second record, Behold and See, that is perhaps their finest achievement. Ostensibly a concept album, it’s centered around lead singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Ian Bruce-Douglas' cynical worldview. He skewers "normal" society with all the fervor of Zappa and all the surreality (and insanity) of Bob Markley on songs like "Visions of Your Reality" and the four-part "Suite: Genesis of Beauty." Add in the lush, floating vocals of Barbara Jean Hudson, fuzz guitar and some great late-60s psych jangle and you've got the formula for an unhinged classic that stands up to the best of the non-coastal psych sounds of the late-60s. For decades, the only available version of Behold and See was a heavily-edited "director's cut” which omitted an entire song and presented edited versions of others. On this edition, Sundazed proudly presents the album in its rare, original, superior dedicated mono mix, unexpurgated and unedited. This "ultimate edition" is presented on (of course! and at last!) custom spinach-colored vinyl and nestled into a jacket with beautifully restored artwork. Behold and See is the perfect place to dig into the "Bosstown Sound” - a tremendous and beautiful album now on Sundazed!!! On colored vinyl! Track Listing: Side 1: 1. Gilded Lamp Of The Cosmos 2. Visions Of Your Reality 3. Jazz Thing 4. Mind Flowers Side 2: 1. Where You're At 2. Suite: Genesis Of Beauty (in four parts) 3. Fifth Horseman Of The Apocalypse 4. Fragmentary March Of Green
  4. Lots of detail on the much coveted Deja Endtendu right out of the gate. <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/8UMAZZXBoV4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  5. The Elvis isn't in there, it's an "unofficial" title.
  6. I run it in the background so I can listen to it while I do other things then switch to view it when he covers a title I'm curious about.

    Nice. He can be hit or miss. I kind of worry about him.

    I'm in for Mark Kozelek, both Lemonheads and of coarse RPM Turntable Baseball. <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/119728863" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe>
  9. Please don't tell that to the bands on my DIY label.
  10. I love that people are saying that this "squeezes out those indie labels/bands that honestly kept those plants from closing for the last 20 years..." If they kept them running for 20 years, they'd have to be existing customers. I think this is United saying thanks to the smaller labels who've been with them for years, not squeezing them out. And regarding new labels, this doesn't mean the can't exist at worst it just means they can't have a RSD release, or if they do they just need to press it elsewhere.
  11. Disc Makers reopens vinyl pressing plant

    On the bubble thing, I agree with Justice, there will be some hipsters that will jump ship (or have for cassettes) but vinyl will be for music what books and movie theatres are, the most intimate way to experience that composition or art.

    Not to totally threadcrap this to a Scientology thread but it's my underestanding they're only interested in DMM lathes. They have the only ones in the US to cut all of L Ron Hubbard's speaches to copper plates. They're stored with a solar powered turntable and instructions so when the earth is rubble someone will find that turntble sealed away with those discs and assume ol L Ron was our god.

    I don't think anyone's blaming them for being middlemen. Most of us like companies like Furnace or Pirates Press who are just that, middlemen. It's more about deception and them essentially saying oh well, you caught me, can I have credit for admitting guilt once caught? So embarassed for them. (edited for a typo)

    Confirmed Disc Fakers here, http://www.digitalmusicnews.com/permalink/2014/06/12/discmakers We are indeed using Gotta Groove as our replication partner during this launch. It’s important for us to manufacture in the US, and they are the only US plant with a uniformly stellar reputation for quality. Our press release said we’re back to offering vinyl to artists, which is true. And Gotta Groove is indeed using the same Hamilton presses – lovingly restored – that were last used to press our records some 15 years ago. We’re hopeful that the broad reach Disc Makers has will make it easier for artists to get vinyl made. Which, if market forces prevail, will likely lead to an expansion in capacity in the market. Tony van Veen CEO, Disc Makers Reply Anonymous Friday, June 13, 2014 Tony, you have to admit that press release is purposely misleading. “So now those old Hamilton presses are cranking again. I can smell that unmistakable smell again”. Really? You can smell them running in Ohio? There are a handful of articles today which have all reported that Disc Makers has re opened a factory, so clearly that is the what people understood to be the case from reading your announcement. Reply Tony van Veen Friday, June 13, 2014 I prefer “stretching the boundaries of truth, but not purposely misleading.” C’mon, no brownie points for coming clean here? I mean, none at all? Surely more egregious sins have been committed by over eager PR departments.

    I watched the video again and they just heavilly imply that they did that and the rest was added by the publications who posted the videos. I prefer honesty or at least vagueness and honesty when asked but they're bordering on outright lying here.
  16. Disc Makers reopens vinyl pressing plant

    It's a ruse. Despite the articles saying they got their presses back online, if you watch the video and watch a video of Gotta Groove in Cleveland it's the same place. The girl in the Cleveland Indians shirt was a hint but the large Gotta Groove logo in the background was the clincher for me. It's a metal disc above two doors that are next to a refridgerator and are probably the most identifiable thing if you compare this video to any videos of inside Gotta Groove. It's pretty shady in my opinion and just a way to get press. Brokers start everyday they just don't make up elaborate tales of getting old presses back online. Those presses have been online for years.
  17. PO: N.E.R.D - In Search Of… (Reissue)

    This was long overdue. Such a great record.
  18. Strangest record that you have?

    I've got one of only a few of the blood filled Flaming Lips Heady Fwends records that's not sealed so you can actually play it. It's pretty gross as the blood has gotten kinda black and chunky. I blame Ke$ha.
  19. My RSD score was 52-33 beating my buddy at RPM Turntable Football.
  20. 2014 Record Store Day - April 19

    There's a second video for the RPM Turntable Football. Not sure if it answers questions or creates more. Can's wait for RSD!
  21. 2014 Record Store Day - April 19

    I'm hoping they later release the TAANG! titles seperately as this is only one I really want... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152091224584775&set=a.10152091224164775.1073741864.45121499774
  22. The Third Man Records Thread

    Anyone else catch the tri-color in this video? I can't tell which it is but it's definitely TMR. https://vimeo.com/87093273
  23. 2014 Record Store Day - April 19

    It's record store day. Most record stores have sold t-shirts for about as long as they've existed. Why is this shocking to some? It makes more sense than those limited action figures they've been doing but in either case they're pop culture shops and it's them celebrating what they do... and this is what they do.
  24. 2014 Record Store Day - April 19

    I'm in for this, the Lemonheads, Elastica, and price depending the Ramones EP.
