A Scratch In The Sky: Deluxe Expanded Mono Edition - Cryan' Shames (The)

A Scratch In The Sky: Deluxe Expanded Mono Edition
• ESSENTIAL SUNSHINE/PSYCH POP FROM 1967!
• RARE LATE MONO MIX — FIRST TIME EVER ISSUED ON CD!
• SOURCED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The Cryan’ Shames’ second album, 1967's A Scratch In The Sky, is an unsung gem of that heady musical era. The set’s distinctive mix of youthful garage-rock energy, sophisticated psychedelic-pop songcraft and forward-thinking studio experimentation reflects the spirit of the times and captures the sound of an ambitious band of young perfectionists (already regional stars in their hometown of Chicago) making a quantum creative leap into exciting new territory.

On A Scratch In The Sky, The Cryan’ Shames trade in the familiar rock ’n’ roll and soul covers that dominated their first album for a set of haunting, emotionally resonant, and experimental original compositions (plus a transcendent reading of the Carole King/Gerry Goffin-penned Drifters classic ‘Up on the Roof’) that are bolstered by adventurous soundscapes.

In addition to the album—presented in its original MONO mix for the first time on CD—two non-LP singles and five single versions are included, and all are sourced from the ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES.

The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare photos and extensive liner notes by music historian Scott Schinder that feature the participation of original band members. Mastered by ALAN BROWNSTEIN from the ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

Reissue Produced by STEVE STANLEY.

Gettin' Dirty

BMX Bandits are a Scottish 1960s-influenced guitar pop band who have been making music from 1986 to the present day. They have shared members with other Bellshill bands Teenage Fanclub and The Soup Dragons.

True heroes of the underground certainly the Scottish music underground defiantly of the Bellshill scene. Duglas T. Stewart has been the mainstay of this band that has featured members of The Teenage Fanclub and The Vasalines. Their sound is as much west coast Americana as it is west Scotland

Their songs are full of heartbreak and humour mixed with a laid back guitar sound that amongst many others attracted the attention of Kurt Cobain who was famously photographed wearing their T-shirts and claiming that they were the only other band he would like to be in.

Gettin' Dirty includes the single of the same and the Love Come To Me single. This edition includes all the b-sides and the fantastic cover of the Jonathan Richman song Summer Feeling perfect for the great summer we are all about to enjoy. It also includes sleeve notes by Duglas and images dug out from his loft.

Our Price: £9.95

Year One
Released 29/06/09. The Golden Gate was the brainchild of Reid Whitelaw and Billy Carl, two songwriters reeling from the recent success of penning and singing on the 1910 Fruitgum Company’s 1968 hit “Goody Goody Gumdrops.” 1969’s Year One would follow a different path. Aided with some of New York and Philadelphia’s finest studio musicians—and the background vocals of none other than members of The Tradewinds (“New York’s A Lonely Town”)—The Golden Gate bridged lushly orchestrated soft pop, Bacharach-influenced Brill pop, Beach Boys/Four Seasons-influenced harmonies, with slight bubblegum affectations. The Golden Gate was not long for this world and ceased operation shortly after the release of this, their lone LP. Coveted by Japanese soft pop collectors for years, it’s not uncommon for mint original copies of Year One to fetch three figures. Making its worldwide CD debut, Year One is augmented by 7 Bonus Tracks, which were culled directly from original master tapes. Our Price: £9.95

Definition
Chrysalis' lone 1968 long player is a hugely respected and much sought-after jazz/folk/ rock crossover from the psychedelic era which has recently earned classic status among collectors and aficionados. It's a most mysterious album boasting exotic song titles, an alluring silver gatefold sleeve and some very zen liner notes... and the twelve pieces of music contained within its grooves are unlike any others recorded before or since. Flitting butterfly-like between the gossamer-light acoustics of 'Cynthia Gerome', the fuzz-drenched satire of 'Father's Getting Old' and the ragtime psychedelia of '30 Poplar', the album takes lush woodwind and string arrangements, full-on acid-rock weird-outs and unbearably delicate jazz vibes and mixes them up into one giant bittersweet birthday cake! Covered in insects!! Featuring the full in-depth story behind the brand and with brand new interview material and contributions from all the surviving band members, the producer, the arranger, the owner of the studio and even the photographer, why don’t you join the growing throng of happy people who ecstatically name this as their favourite album of all time. Go on, you know you want to... Our Price: £9.95

Astro-Sounds From Beyond The Year 2000
What happens if you take legendary surf guitarist Jerry Cole, after his brief spell with The Animated Egg and put him in a room with a lush orchestra and lots of Philip K Dick books?
According to the sleeve of the original mid-‘60s album: 'A space Odyssey in the beat of today – with the far out sounds of tomorrow's uncharted trip beyond the now generation.'
Yes, all that and song titles like ‘Re-Entry To Mog' and the supreme ‘A Disappointed Love With A Desensitized Robot'. ‘Astro-Sounds From Beyond The Year 2000' is a work of psychedelic genius with a Krautrock-styled rhythm, a trippy meander through the planets that's very PiL in places over ten years before the fact. As groovy as it gets!
Our Price: £9.95
