Record Store Day 2017
We never knew when we put out an album of the music of the late William Onyeabor that William had never performed live - though we did know he had no interest in doing it now. So we thought we should put together a band to play his music live. What an amazing time it's been. It's been so enjoayable that we thought we should document the group playing Williams music live in a studio. This document is not in anyway trying to compete with the amazing work that William Onyeabor did originally. This is a limited LP only edition which we hope you enjoy. Please welcome - The Atomic Bomb Band. Featured on this album: Jamie Lidell, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Luke Jenner (The Rapture), Charles Lloyd, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Ahmed Gallab (Sinkane), Jason Trammell, Ish Montgomery, Johnny Lamm, Jas Walton & Jordan McLean (Antibalas), Lekan Babaloa, Kofo the Wonderman, Felicia Douglas, & Ananda Kihiri.

Complete Third was years in the making, and its eventual CD release saw it appear on countless "Best of 2016" lists. The vinyl volumes of Complete Third began rolling out at the end of last year with Vol. 1: Demoes to Sessions To Roughs arriving in November and Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes in February 2017. Now, Vol. 3: Final Masters is here to complete the trilogy. The double LP contains every released master recording from every officially released version of Third on 3 sides of vinyl. As an added bonus, the CD version's hidden track ( a previously issued strings and vocals only mix of "Thank You Friends") takes its place on a specially etched Side Four. A download card is included containing the audio for Vol. 3 and the complete liner notes and booklet as a PDF. To make Vol. 3 even more special, it is available in a limited edition slipcase with room for VOls 1 and 2 (which are sold separately) for Record Store Day 2017. Plus, it contains a 20 page, full color, LP sized booklet with all of the notes, photos and commentary from the CD set. This is a unique and beautiful way to house and display the three vinyl components. The third time is the charm to complete Complete Third on vinyl.

In August 1971, David Bowie's manager, Tony Defries had 500 promo LPs pressed to secure Bowie and fellow Mainman artist Dana Gillespie a record deal. This promo album, featuring seven Bowie songs on one Side A and five by Gillespie on the flip is often referred to as the BOWPROMO white label album. It came in generic white outer and inner sleeves, and had no printed labels so its matrix number (BOWPROMO 1A-1/1B-1) is the only way to safely identify it. This Record Store Day release faithfully replicates the original promo, with Bowie's seven tracks on one side, and adds five exclusive Bowie prints. (Limited worldwide release of 15,000.)
SIDE A: 01 Oh! You Pretty Things (BOWPROMO Mix) 02 Eight Line Poem (BOWPROMO Mix) 03 Kooks (BOWPROMO Mix) 04 It Ain't Easy 05 Queen Bitch (BOWPROMO Mix) 06 Quicksand (BOWPROMO Mix) 07 Bombers (BOWPROMO Mix)

The first weapon drawn in a conflict is language, but the first weapon drawn for Czarface is music. Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck & Esoteric carved a niche for Czarface with venomous vocals, but the musical production is their super power. Powered by the trademark sound of 7L and Todd Spadafore (The Czar-Keys), a sound that's been developed since Czarface's first LP in 2013, First Weapon Drawn serves as the soundtrack to Czarface's mysterious origin. Fresh off of their collaboration with Marvel Comics, Czarface has not only delivered a new audio adventure complete with narration, it has given us an extra large, full color, action-packed 24 page comic book with it, housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket! In the spirit of the highly sought after Power Records series from the 70's, you can read along with the comic and hear the story come to life on vinyl.

Produced by Mike Leander, who had produced and arranged much of Faithfull’s Decca material, Rich Kid Blues is an intriguing album of spare, largely acoustic readings of folk/rock songs, including several Bob Dylan covers, as well as songs by Phil Ochs, George Harrison, Cat Stevens, Tim Hardin, James Taylor and Sandy Denny. Marianne Faithfull had this to say about the 1971 recordings: “The record itself is very strange and ghostly. It’s the voice of somebody incredibly high, probably on the edge of death. They always sound like that. Johnny Thunders sounds like that. Anybody who heard that record would have said, ‘Well that’s that. We’ll never hear from her again’.” Recorded in 1972, but not released until 1985, this silver vinyl reissue brings it back into print for Record Store Day.
Frank Nitt and Dankery Harv - or just Frank n Dank - knew J. Dilla before you. But don't feel bad, they knew Dilla before anyone knew Dilla. When Dilla was still in Detroit, before he was known as J Dilla. Before he'd even stepped foot in LA.

"More than 20 years since our first album was released, we are frequently flattered by fans expressing how much our music meant to them. We are often asked if we have a new album in the works. So far, the answer has been no. But for a while now, we’ve been thinking of issuing an album of unreleased songs for our fans around the world. With the encouragement of a few close friends, the idea grew and soon we were rummaging through our old tape archives. So, what you have here is not an album of new songs, but a collection of old songs from the time of our previous albums. Songs that never went beyond the demo stage. We hope and hope and hope that you will enjoy them in all their low-hi-fi glory." --Nuclear Valdez

Almost a year to the day from the release of Suuns' most-far reaching and creative record Hold/Still comes an album of remixes. Spanning an incredibly diverse range of artists and sounds, each one of these remixes takes the original track and twists and turns it into some very unique. The source material leant itself perfectly to a remix project - these are songs that are complex, layered, experimental. The remixes vary from the dancefloor fillers from the likes of Redshape or Marvin & Guy through to the ambience of Lee Gamble and Beatrice Dillon and the techno of VRIL, and shows Suuns as one of the most forward thinking and fertile bands around. Time to go and get lost. Comes as a double, colored, limited vinyl.

Despite showing similarities with the debut album, The Time's second effort What Time Is It? offers three boasting, extended synth-funk jams ("Wild and Loose", "777-9311" and "The Walk") that are undoubtedly much better than those on the first album and an exceptional humorous ballad as well ("Gigolos Get Lonely Too"). The album was recorded at Sunset Sound and at Prince's Minneapolis home studio. What Time Is It? represents The Time's best developed album overall, much more fully developed than its predecessor, and it is particularly appreciated by fans of Prince's early works.

Electric Cowbell Records offer an exclusive Record Store Day limited-edition release 7” 45RPM from Tribu Baharú, a Champeta criolla and World music band from Bogotá, Colombia. It's been denigrated and damned, boycotted and banned, but it can never be stopped: champeta, the ever evolving, high-energy hybrid of Columbian, African and Afro-Caribbean styles just keeps on coming. And leading a new charge are Tribu Baharú, barrelling out of Bogotá, championing their version of champeta, inspired by the legendary, street-shaking Pico sound-systems of Columbia's Caribbean coast. Sparkling Congolese guitar driven by high-speed bass and drums and the all-animating upfront singers. Champeta was swept away by the ubiquitous Reggaeton in the '90s but Tribu Baharú are part of a wave of nuevas musicas Colombianas based in the capital city who are reestablishing it as a prime force and adding more ingredients to the recipe. Contain traces of soukous, zouk, calypso, mbaqanga, soca, compa Haitiano, rap and ragamuffin. Essential ammunition for the globally-minded DJ. Limited-edition of 500 pressed. 7” 45RPM on black vinyl. Comes in full-color die-cut sleeve with center hole and full-color label.

The Bevis Frond emerged fully-formed from the skull of British rock, and Pitchfork called it "A Cult Favorite". This white vinyl reissue of the heavy third offering from Nick Saloman bursts with 60s-psych and includes epic track ""Tangerine Infringement Beak"" clocking in at nearly 20 minutes, "Into The Cryptic Mist" and "Lights Are Changing" a song that went on to be covered by Mary Lou Lord. A labour of love and fiercely independent, his prolific output has seen as many releases in as many years and an uncompromising vision under his own label Woronzow. Hailed as “a Hendrix devotee every bit as tough and contemporary as the serrated guitar chorales of Sonic Youth and Pixies” by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, his immense psych-stoner-rock has seen him become a cult figure in his own right. The Bevis Frond’s legion of loyal fans includes Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Mary Lou Lord, who have all covered his music.

Guitar mastery meets the space age bachelor pad with a healthy mix of controversy. The Astro-Sound of Magnificence, from Beyond the Year 2000...a unique capsule of a funky, psychedelic rhythm section jamming, with snarling, stabbing and swooshing cranked-up-to-infinity electric guitar voyages piloted by Wrecking Crew veteran Jerry Cole, polished and primed for takeoff with a string section playing eerie, beckoning melodies in unison. These are the sounds of epiphanies concerning the future, space and sounds on the horizon, circa 1969. The tracks for this album were recorded by Cole and other players during sessions for a separate longplayer and were deemed to be outtakes; the details as to how they became Astro Sounds From Beyond the Year 2000 are dark and distant, but the 10 tracks here were first issued sans strings in 1967 as The Animated Egg, with alternate song titles. Two years later the recordings were overdubbed with the swirling, piercing phase-shifted strings mix you hear here, creating a spectacular fusion of psych-rock, R&B, easy listening and fuzz guitar, with hints of the coming worlds of ambient and electronica. These truly are the far out sounds of tomorrow’s unchartered trip, as the original album jacket proclaims—come aboard, launch and listen. Available on gold vinyl or CD.
