Children Of Tomorrow - Mike Stuart Span

Children Of Tomorrow
They made precious little impact at the time, but Brighton based quartet the Mike Stuart Span have been lauded by collectors for at least a couple of decades now as one of the finest British psychedelic bands of the era.With their early 1968 single Children Of Tomorrow b/w Concerto Of Thoughts widely acknowledged as one of the best (and rarest a copy recently sold on eBay for in excess of £700) examples of the genre, their recordings have appeared on numerous illegal releases as well as a limited edition, band-authorised mid-1990s anthology. However, licensing restrictions ensured that a definitive, all-encompassing Mike Stuart Span compilation remained an impossible dream.Until now, that is, because Children Of Tomorrow represents the Mike Stuart Span motherlode. Featuring every MSS studio recording known to have survived, it includes their brace of mod-soul singles for EMI and their notorious but little-heard stab at pop stardom with Fontana together with that superlative psych-pop 45 on Jewel and a host of demos in a similar vein.As a considerable bonus, we also feature a clutch of previously-unissued treasures: the only recording made by pre-MSS outfit the Mighty Atoms, a far more muscular radio session stab at Fontana A-side You Can Understand Me and two 1966 demos that effectively won the group their EMI deal. With previously unpublished photos and fresh quotes from band members Stuart Hobday and Gary Murphy, Children Of Tomorrow is the definitive Mike Stuart Span anthology.

Dreams Interrupted
Glaxo Babies were the fore-runners of a wave of Bristol music that spawned The Pop Group, Rip Rig & Panic, Maximum Joy & Pigbag, who all became household names as the jagged edged angst movement quickly gathered respect throughout the world. A firm favourite with John Peel, the Glaxo's soon notched up their first session following on from the highly acclaimed first release - the 12" This your Life EP which included the classic "Who Killed Bruce Lee". Always underrated but never dismissed, they fought back with the blistering Christine Keeler 45 often sighted as the bands finest moment. This collection spans their career, illustrating just how unique and original the Glaxos were, and how their relevance seems ever present with today's jagged edged sounds. Our Price: £9.95

The Amazing Adventures of…
Released 29/06/09. First-ever anthology of the legendary late 60s counter-culture act. The Liverpool Scene were fronted by gifted artist and poet Adrian Henri. Also in the band were folk artist Mike Hart, accomplished singer-songwriter Andy Roberts award-winning jazz bassist Percy Jones (later in Brand X) and Mike Evans. This 2-CD set draws on three rare albums and a posthumous compilation for RCA, issued between 1968 and 1970. None of the Liverpool Scene's music is currently available on CD. Widespread media coverage expected, not least via the late Adrian Henri's reputation. Essential for any fan of the Bonzos, the Scaffold or even Frank Zappa/Mothers Of Invention. Includes several previously unissued TV recordings. Our Price: £10.95

Outward Bown
One of the most popular club bands of the Swinging London era, the Alan Bown Set abruptly changed direction in the Summer of 1967, shedding their soul/R&B togs to reinvent themselves as flower power pop merchants the Alan Bown! Under this new guise, they cut one of the lost jewels of the British psychedelic pop scene, the magnificent Outward Bown.The LP appeared in late 1968, but unfortunately was only briefly available due to the collapse of the band’s record company. To add insult to injury, a long-overdue late 1990s CD release of Outward Bown suffered a similar fate, meaning that this most quintessential of English psychedelic pop albums has never been available for more than a few weeks at a time.Finally, however, Outward Bown receives the release that it deserves with this definitive double CD package, which features both mono and stereo mixes of the album together with obscure B-sides and alternative single versions. Pieced together from recording sessions that spanned the summer of 1967 to spring 1968, Outward Bown deftly embraces all points of the psychedelic pop compass, taking in proto-hard rock (including the original electric blueprint of ‘All Along The Watchtower’ that inspired Hendrix to cut his own version), blue-eyed mod soul and, perhaps most notably of all, the voguish toytown pop sound, evident in such winsome vignettes as ‘Toyland’, ‘Violin Shop’ and ‘Story Book’.
