Strange Flavour - Agnes Strange

Strange Flavour
Picture this: Britain in the pre-punk 1970s…most of the Supergroups of Rock have become too vast and trunk less to mean much to the average music fans in their hearts. An odd time, when the secret master beloved by all was Alex Harvey, and up and down the country, every night, small-time bands kept the spirit alive; playing R&B, Prog, Folk Rock, you name it, they didn't give up the music they loved…but record labels didn't really get it - giving rise to the phenomenon nowadays loved by collectors - the Private Press record. Agnes Strange was one of the best and most unusual (and at the same time archetypal) of these bands. Their private press label was a bizarre joint venture between a major label and a chain of Real Ale pubs. With producer and well-known scholar of 1950s rock' n' roll - Dave Travis at the recording controls, it was never going to be ordinary! Much bootlegged, pirated and faked by collectors' labels, here for the first time, with the full involvement of Dave Travis and the band, is the REAL story of Agnes Strange.

The Fabulous
Beautiful collection of vintage recordings by the greatest guitarist the world has ever known. Comprising the Maestro¹s own transcriptions of Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces and of pieces solicited from composers of the day such as the popular Brazilian composer Heitor Villa- Lobos In Tokyo, New York, Paris, London, Madrid, Segovia's cool, highly refined sound is regarded today as the definitive 'chill-out' music and we will look to reach that audience through the jazz and arts media. Segovia, the Unchallenged Master Of the Spanish Guitar influenced George Harrison, Django Reinhardt, Robert Fripp, Julian Bream and every serious classical guitarist. Particularly in Japan and America he toured extensively and sold a lot of records. Our Price: £9.95

Sinker, Line & Hook - The Anthology 1987-99
Inspired by the best in 60s sounds (Mod, garage, pop-art, psychedelia freakbeat), The Aardvarks were formed in the mid-1980s in Ealing, West London, as part of the same scene which eventually reared Kula Shaker.
For many years, they were one of the most popular bands on the Mod and 60s Revival circuit, issuing a string of acclaimed 45s on labels such as Screaming Apple and Detour.
The Aardvarks’ 12-year lifespan is remembered on this compilation, built around their 1995 album for Delerium, Bargain, while also offering an equal number of choice tracks from elsewhere.
The ‘Varks tasted brief fame in the 90s, appearing on the James Whale TV Show and even supporting Bonnie Tyler!
