|If you are looking for raw, psychedelic hard-rock, look no further! We present the complete recordings (1968-1972) from Wicked Lady, the legendary UK underground power trio leaded by ace guitarist Martin Weaver, later a member of Dark on their "Round the edges" album.
Here's the first volume of our Wicked Lady collection, both a CD version and a lavish double vinyl of "The Axeman Cometh". Our edition features new artwork and liner notes by doomy psychedelic guitar God in person, Martin Weaver, who tells the real (and bizarre!) story behind Wicked Lady for the first time. The stuff of a legend, this is a real fest of fuzz, wah-wah and heavy riffs that will blow the mind of any hard-psych collector.
SIDE A: 1. Run the night (5:08) 2. War Cloud (7:37) SIDE B: 1. The Axeman Cometh (6:52) 2. Life and Death (9:58) SIDE C: 1. Wicked Lady (6:01) 2. Out of the dark (10:14) SIDE D: 1. Rebel (3:32) 2. Living on the edge (10:09)
|Second volume to complete the anthology of Wicked Lady recordings, their final tracks recorded in 1972, just before the band split up and guitarist Martin Weaver left for Dark (of "Round the edges" fame). Another batch of excessive, over-the-top doomy psychedelic hard-rock including underground classics like "I'm a freak" and the 21 minute epic "Ship of ghosts".
Again, both a CD version and a lavish double vinyl which offers maximum sound quality, new artwork and liner notes by doomy psychedelic guitar God in person, Martin Weaver, telling the real story behind Wicked Lady for the first time.

|Here's one the most obscure US private pressings from the late 60s / early 70s. For many years, the Misty Hush Revival name was only a rumour whispered in collector's circles, with only a handful copies known of the original album around today. Like The Bachs or The Index, this is one of those hard to describe albums which seem to live in a world of their own. Despite the late '72 release date, the music here sounds more late 60s than early 70s and the whole album has a cool, lost-in-time atmosphere.
The group were in fact a club band from New Jersey but surprisingly all the tracks are originals, no cover versions, and they range from fragile, dreamy pop-psych numbers to raw garage, fuzzed-out jams and teen-beat sounds. Like Patrick Lundborg says on Acid Archives: "A cool, atmospheric trip for fans of the tri-state late '60s club sound"
First time ever CD reissue, remastered on 24-Bit, original artwork, booklet with rare pictures and liner notes by Jack D. Fleischer, and two bonus tracks not on the vinyl release.
Singer to singer – Summer means new love – Your heart is broken- Tell me baby – Look my way – Gone away – Danny’s home made jam – Now I need you – Till I get back home – 3 AM – Summer means new love (instr./Flashback) – Tell me baby (alternate version) – Don’t let the sun get you crying
|This is his first longplayer, released in 1971 by Sayan Productions. It's a compilation of tracks taken from previously released 45s, plus the track "Lory" that only appeared on this album. Killer psych rock with strong Turkish flavour, this features Baris' all-time classics like "Derule" or "Daglar Daglar", as well as the brutal wah-wah flooded "Küçük bir gece müzigi" with its infectious drumming that drives mad anyone searching for sampling stuff.
Not to be confused with two different releases with the same name that actually have different tracklist and artwork, this is the real album as it was originally released, for the first time having the legit CD reissue treatment for your big pleasure. In addition, this will also include a booklet with great shots of Baris and extensive linernotes.
Daglar Daglar – Kirpiklerin ok ok eyle – Kagizman – Küçük bir gece müzigi – Kol dügmeleri – Derule – Iste hendek iste deve – Seher vakti – Anadolu – Aglama degmez hayat – Lory – Katip arzuhalim yaz yare böyle
|From 1975, this is Baris Manço’s masterpiece. Stunning cosmic, psychedelic, groovy conceptual album with fantastic electronics use and a strong Turkish folk flavour as usual. Again, this is the first official, proper CD reissue, and comes with a booklet with linernotes and photos.
Acih’da baga vir! – Kayalarin oglu – 2023 – Yolverin agalar beyler! – Uzun ince bir yoldayim – Yine yol göründü gurbete – Baykoca destani (gülme ha, gülme / gelinlik kizlarin dansi / kara haber turnanin ölümü / vur ha, vur! / durma ha, durma!) – Tavuklara kissst de! – Kol basti!
|In 1976, Baris released his third album which was actually also a compilation of songs previously released in 45s, as happened with his debut. For this CD release, and basically because of contractual reasons, we are presenting you this compilation with a few changes: two of the original songs are not there, and we added six new ones, including one that was only released on cassette in Germany.
So, what we get here is a scorchin’ collection of funky psychedelics Turkish way that will knock you out. Big Baris beats them all, the King of Anadolu Pop!!!
Booklet with linernotes and photos is included also.
