Love, Poetry And Revolution - Various Artists

Love, Poetry And Revolution
Cherry Red’s dedicated UK psych imprint Grapefruit is proud to announce the release in October of the 3CD anthology Love, Poetry and Revolution: a journey through the British psychedelic and underground scenes 1966-1972. · Housed in a clambox with a lavishly annotated and illustrated 36 page booklet, this important release features much rare material, including previously unissued demo recordings by Tintern Abbey and Blossom Toes.

Various heavyweight underground bands (The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Hawkwind, The Deviants, etc) rub shoulders with acts who recorded some of the rarest, most valuable albums of the era (Forever Amber, Complex, Peter Howell & John Ferdinando), while the box also includes a number of subterranean bands - Middle Earth regulars Jade Hexagram, Neon Pearl, Respect and others – who failed to release anything during their lifetime. ·

Embracing psychedelic pop (The Mirage, Jason Crest, Shy Limbs, Crocheted Doughnut Ring etc), the burgeoning progressive rock scene (T2, Czar, Fat Mattress) and acid folk (the likes of Simon Finn and Mark Fry), Love, Poetry and Revolution draws on a number of catalogues, including Beacon (The Fut, Information, pre-Damned act Taiconderoga), the Vic Keary stable and various collector labels (Sunbeam, Acme, Tenth Planet/Wooden Hill) to give a fascinating, all-embracing overview of what was a tumultuous few years in British pop/rock history.

Return To Paradise: A History Of Exotica

Released on 20/09/10. Strange, Sultry and Seductive...fierce, fascinating and feverish - here are sounds to quicken the heart-beat; the tropical fantasy of a hidden world. A woman¹s voice calls, hypnotic and compelling; drums repeat the haunting command and the music weaves a spell of mystery.

From the early fifties, with the onset of international air travel, Exotica became a massively popular musical trend; making it possible for middleclass Americans to simulate an authentic travelogue experience - to India, Africa, Cuba, or the South Seas - in the comfort of their suburban homes.


This public looked to Les Baxter, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, Yma Sumac, Korla Pandit or Robert Drasnin to provide (in contrast to the prevailing rock and roll scene) a mystical combination of Oriental, African and Latin sounds, decorated with natural effects gathered from the sea, sky and forest.


Exotic music was originally conceived with Ravel's Bolero and Debussy¹s Pagodes. It left the classical world and entered pop through Les Baxter. In 1950 he created Voice of the Xtabay with four octave Peruvian singer Yma Sumac and a year later released the seminal work of exotica, his tone poem Ritual of the Savage (Le Sacre Du Sauvage).

Morricone High – The Trippier Side Of The Morricone Genius
Morricone High' showcases the composer's work for Italian psychedelic and art movies of the late sixties & early seventies. Ennio Morricone's beautiful melodies are decorated by Edda Dell'Orso's spacious wordless vocals; 'Scusi, Facciamo L'Amore?' (with the harmony singers I Cantori Moderni) (about the travails of a Neapolitan gigolo), 'Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene' (sex and crime Italian style) 'Veruschka' (model on a psychedelic trip) and 'La Donna Invisible' (arty Mediterranean love triangle) are all sublime examples of the composer in his pomp. Eventually the layers of sensuality give way to the atonal but no less refined, 'Notte E Bambole' from the weird, dreamlike 'The Short Night Of The Glass Dolls' (about catalepsy in art deco Prague) and the equally intense '1970' for Dario Argento's Giallo 'Il Gatto A Nove Code' starring Karl Malden as a blind writer of crossword puzzles who stumbles on a murderous plot.

Made In England
 Long established as one of the minor classics of the British psychedelic pop genre, the Bulldog Breed album Made In England was recorded in mid-1969 but not released by Deram Nova until the beginning of the following year - by which time its thrilling Spirit-of-'67 mod/psych sound and commitment to hook-laden, sub-three minute songs was fatally out of sync with the self-indulgence and bombast of the nascent progressive rock era.

The Association
THEIR SELF-TITLED 1969 CLASSIC!
FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
INCLUDING 10 BONUS TRACKS!

Released in August 1969, The Association (often referred to as the "Stonehenge” album) marks another turning point in the band’s storied career. They opted to co-produce the eponymous album with JOHN BOYLAN (Appletree Theater, Rick Nelson, The Dillards) and play on most of the tracks themselves as they had done on their sophomore LP, Renaissance. The result was a more mature and highly diverse effort showcasing country rock, hard rock, R&B, and soft pop, all featuring the signature harmonic blend they were beloved for.
The Association, a Billboard #32 charting album, features 10 bonus tracks, including non-LP singles, and rare mono single versions. Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members!

Release Date: 24/06/2013
