Bubblegum Music Is The Naked Truth - Various Artists

Bubblegum Music Is The Naked Truth
Here it is! The album which started it all, the oddest chldlike/cynical genre of music ever...compiled by the legendary Neil Bogart and intensified by the RevOla team: the sound of Garage Rock meets nursery rhyme and sexual innuendo found it's C86, it's Rock Machine Turns You On, it's New Folk Roots in this wonderful album... The legend himself, Neil Bogart, who sold the world Bubblegum and later Disco and with the proceeds helped make Colombia a wealthy nation if you catch my drift, was one of THE A&R and marketing doyens of the 20th century, making Buddha Records a force to be reckoned with in the market...not to mention Casablanca Records...so here are all the hits, all the surprises of the Bubblegum world, focusing on the original New York/Ohio axis of the scene...and beyond…the first of a series of pop gems? Could well be... ** Wonderfully mastered by the lovely Nick Robbins ** Beautiful art by the sexy Andy Morten ** Lots of secrets lies and exposes! ** A must for all fans of super-psychpop...and let's face it - who isn't?!!

Symphonies For Susan
The Arbors are the last great 'lost' vocal harmony act of the 1960s. Formed by two sets of brothers at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1965 (and you thought the MC5 were the first cool Ann Arbor act!), the quartet were signed to Columbia's Date imprint and scored their first hit with "A Symphony For Susan" in 1966. Indeed, it's the symphonic nature of many of their recordings that singled The Arbors out as being that little bit different from their 'cooler' peers. Then in 1969 the group semi-re-invented themselves with their third LP which spawned further hits in their mind-blowing, DJ-baiting versions of The Box Tops' "The Letter" and Blood, Sweat & Tears' "I Can't Quit Her". The album also featured stunning readings of Beatles, Dylan, Doors and Simon & Garfunkel tunes and should now be regarded as a bona fide soft pop classic. Shifting once again, in the early '70s the band moved away from pop and into the lucrative world of advertising jingles where they forged a 30-odd year career cutting ads for the likes of McDonalds, Texaco, Green Giant and United Airlines. Rev-Ola is proud to present Symphonies For Susan, the first definitive retrospective of this largely overlooked and hugely talented band, featuring tracks from all three of their albums, many of which appear on CD for the first time.

Mario Telles
Yet another in our great series of the best Brasilian sounds, here's a real treat from the early 1960s - we have the sole self-titled album from legendary lyricist Mario Telles. Mario released only this single LP in his entire career , now a very rare album with arrangements and orchestration by Moacir Santos, Astor Silva and the amazing Baden Powell (guitar and also arrangements). This LP also contains the very first recordings of Nana, Berimbau and many songs, which became standards of the rising Bossa Nova style. Brother of Sylvia Telles, the diva of the early Bossa Nova scene, who died tragically young, Mario remains a major cultural mover and shaker in Brasil to this day. Sought after by all fans of Brasilian music, this is the first ever release of this material in Europe, and of its course beautifully re-mastered in true Rev-Ola style, with gorgeous packaging as usual and it is a must for all fans of the wonderful Bossa Nova music of Brasil! Our Price: £9.95

Nothing But Trouble - The Best Of
From Den Haag (The Hague) in Holland, Q65 were among the country’s wildest beat groups of the 1960s. Their firebrand approach to the beat and rhythm ‘n’ blues boom was the opposite of what most of the country’s successful pop group fraternity were putting over at the time; best represented with the unpolished, raw intensity of You’re The Victor, their 1966 debut for Decca which shook up the charts and caused shockwaves throughout the nations living rooms.
