The Complete Warner Bros. & Valiant Singles Collection - Association

The Complete Warner Bros. & Valiant Singles Collection
The Association were simply one of the finest, most beloved, and most commercially successful American vocal groups of the 1960s. Yet a complete singles collection of their golden Warner Bros. & Valiant years (1966-1971) has never been collected. UNTIL NOW! Although the popular six-man band initially developed a straight-laced, M.O.R. image, they were actually much more dynamic than that.

They helped pioneer the new musical genre dubbed "folk-rock” by Troubadour owner Doug Weston and fused this sound with a sophisticated vocal blend that was on par with The Beach Boys. And contrary to their hop-sack-suited image, they were all spiritual seekers, with one member, Jules Alexander, leaving the band for a pilgrimage to India nearly a year before The Beatles.


The deluxe, double Digipak includes a full-colour booklet with previously unpublished photos, and extensive liner notes featuring track-by-track commentary from original band members Terry Kirkman, Russ Giguere, Larry Ramos, Jules Alexander, Ted Bluechel Jr., and Jim Yester; as well as songwriters P.F. Sloan, Ruthann Friedman, Tandyn Almer, and Dick Addrisi; and producers Bones Howe, Jerry Yester, and others! 

Press:-


"Six varied and characterful voices, six writers, six musicians, they created some of the very best pop ever recorded". 5* (Kingsley Abbott - Record Collector August 2012)
 
"A slick sunshine pop/folk rock band which had a great deal of success in its native America in the second half of the 1960's, The Association are given the deluxe, double digipack treatment by Now Sounds on a delightful release compiled and curated by St. Etienne's Bob Stanley". (PF Sloan, Music Week, 08/06/2012)

Daughters Of Albion
•FIRST EVER LEGITIMATE REISSUE ON CD
• PRODUCED BY LEON RUSSELL
• FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
Daughters of Albion were GREG DEMPSEY and KATHY YESSE (later Kathy Dalton), partners since their days in the folk-rock oriented Gas Company. By 1968, they hooked up with producer LEON RUSSELL and created this unbelievably ambitious psych-pop rock-opera that could’ve only come from that tumultuous moment in time. Clarinets, bells, xylophones, harps and guitars collide magically with elaborate vocal arrangements and intelligent lyrics—all within a psychedelically experimental pop context.
Included here is Daughter of Albion’s lone album, along with mono single mixes of ‘Well Wired’ and ‘Story Of Sad.’ This material has surprisingly never before been legitimately issued anywhere on CD—UNTIL NOW! Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The 16-page, full-colour booklet includes rare photos, and extensive liner notes featuring the involvement of original band members.

Pop Can! The Definitive Collection 1986 to 1988. 2CD
Mighty Mighty were a popular Indie guitar pop combo hailing from Birmingham, who made their name as part of the so-called C86 scene championed by the NME on their famous cassette.
Between 1986 and 1988, the band issued six singles/EP’s and an album, all of which made the Indie Chart courtesy of their evocative mix of naggingly hummable tunes, poignant lyrics and a musical style which suggested a love of both The Smiths and Postcard-era Orange Juice.
After rave reviews for their first two singles, Everybody Knows The Monkey and Is There Anyone Out There?, Mighty Mighty signed to local label Chapter 22 (then home to Pop Will Eat Itself, etc.), eventually issuing their sole LP Sharks in 1988.
Pop Can! (the title doesn’t appear on the sleeve, a nod to Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground!) is the first comprehensive compilation of Mighty Mighty’s recordings. Previous CDs are now impossible to find!
Those singles in full:
Everybody Knows The Monkey (1986, Girlie) Indie No.34
Is There Anyone Out There? (1986, Girlie) Indie No.14
Throwaway (1986, Chapter 22) Indie No.7
Built Like A Car (1987, Chapter 22) Indie No.6
One Way (1987, Chapter 22) Indie No.10
Maisonette (1988, Chapter 22) No.8
The compilation boasts remastered music as well as a beautifully annotated 16-page booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from each band member.

Release Date: 18/02/2013

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.
