The Changing Of The Guard ~The Sixties London Pop Explosion
The Changing of the Guard is a unique music and dialogue sound collage of Swinging London in 1968; a time of exciting developments in all the artistic fields and a time when England set cultural standards that the world is still trying to emulate. Protagonists central to the scene are included here: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones discussing revolution; his manager Andrew Loog Oldham explaining business philosophy; the young Michael Caine debating morals in the context of the permissive society; Julie Christie on fame and Lee Marvin on Mini cars and mini skirts! The dialogue is edited against brilliant historic London pop of the period: big hits such as The Small Face's 'Itchychoo Park' and 'Here Come The Nice', Chris Farlowe's memorable number one 'Out of Time', 'If Paradise is Half as Nice' by The Amen Corner and mercurial psychedelia; The Marquis of Kensington, Fleur De Lys, Duncan Browne, Billy Nicholls and the first line up of Humble Pie featuring Steve Marriott and the Face Of 1968 - Peter Frampton. Special mention too for an early song from Vashti! The success of Andrew Oldham's two recent autobiographies, confirms that there has never been more fascination with the period, even if some of it is nostalgia for what we have subsequently unfortunately lost.

Dream Babes Vol 5 - Folkrock 'n' Faithfull
Continuing the series that focuses on british female recordings of the sixties.The rise of folk rock in the mid 60's, together with that of the singer/songwriter troubador, are the backdrop and theme to this new edition of the Dream Babes series. The arrival in '65 of Marianne Faithfull encouraged many producers to push forward their own wistful and innocent proteges. Examples abound here, such as Trisha with a Donovan song, and include Faithfull's guitarist of the time Caroline Carter. The latter a Tony Calder Production (at times Andrew Loog Oldhams business partner) , with another example being Phillipa Lewis on a number written and musically directed by Jimmy Page (one of four tracks on this album that Page had a hand in). Not all were in the Faithfull field and Page's work in London with beau Jackie De Shannon yielded some cracking Folkrock gems such as De Shannons own Don't Turn Your Back On Me. An immediate successor to Faithfull , but who later found her own niche , is Vashti . Her recordings with Loog Oldham, appearance in the cult film Tonite Lets All Make Love in London, and classic album ' Just Another Diamond Day ' are some examples. The two tracks here are from '66 after she'd come down from Oxford where she had been part of an art and music scene with Jennifer Lewis & Angela Strange. This circle also included Michael Palin.More of this great interweaving story and history is to be found on the essay written by Bob Stanley for the album . With unreleased tracks and first time reissues this album not only sounds good but contains many rarities as well. A perfect addition to the series!

SCARED TO GET HAPPY A STORY OF INDIE-POP 1980-1989
SCARED TO GET HAPPY (A Story Of Indie Pop 1980-1989) is the first box set ever to document the explosion of Indie Pop in Britain across the 1980s. Compiled in loosely chronological fashion, the five CDs chart Indie Pop’s development from the post punk era and the dominance of Scottish bands through to its genre-defining C86 period and onto the end of the decade, with the arrival of Madchester and the shoegazing sound.

Inspired by the Nuggets compilations, the box set boasts 134 tracks spanning the Eighties, drawn from all the key labels of the period – Creation, Factory, Cherry Red, Rough Trade, Sarah, Subway Organisation, Zoo, Kitchenware, Pink, Chapter 22, In Tape, Medium Cool, Lazy, Dreamworld, 53rd & 3rd, Ron Johnson, el, Vindaloo, Red Rhino, Food, etc.

Many of the bands later tasted mainstream success: Primal Scream, Aztec Camera, Stone Roses, Pulp, the Wonder Stuff, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, the Inspiral Carpets, the Soup Dragons, the Wedding Present, James, the La’s, del Amitri, the Primitives, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Prefab Sprout, the Shamen, Cud, the Bluebells, Black, the House Of Love, Strawberry Switchblade, Pop Will Eat Itself, the Darling Buds, Fuzzbox, That Petrol Emotion, the Railway Children, Jamie Wednesday (as Carter USM), the Milltown Brothers and the Boo Radleys.  

The box set boasts a stylish 54-page booklet with a lengthy sleeve-note detailing each track and illustrations of the records and bands involved.

A few tracks (Strawberry Switchblade, Soup Dragons, Bluebells, Close Lobsters, etc.) have never officially been released before. Many others are extremely rare and make their debut on CD.

SCARED TO GET HAPPY will be promoted by a mini-festival at London’s 229 club on June 22nd, with an impressive roster: the Primitives, the BMX Bandits, the Brilliant Corners, the June Brides, Mighty Mighty, the Wolfhounds, the Popguns, 14 Iced Bears, the Blue Orchids and Yeah Yeah Noh.
