Of Cabbages And Kings
Released 23rd February 2009. Another swinging ‘60s pop duo of the utmost pedigree? Oh yes... but one with a difference… Having led the LA division of the British Invasion for some years - appearing on Batman no less – that most British of duos Chad & Jeremy were feeling the changing times and were ready to pull out the stops in creating a studio masterpiece to rival the best of ‘em. Super-producer Gary Usher (then on a roll with Sagittarius and The Notorious Byrd Brothers among others) was enlisted and brought along his full menagerie: Curt Boettcher, The Firesign Theatre, members of The Millennium and the wrecking crew. Despite this hallowed company, our boys remained resolutely in command, emerging as gifted writers, arrangers and performers in the process. Our Price: £9.95

The Ark
Released 27/04/09. After our proud release of Chad & Jeremy's "Of Cabbages And Kings", we now present their followup, "The Ark". Put together by the same Gary Usher-helmed team with the same sumptuous results, this is an amazing album. Little were Chad and Jeremy to know it would be their swansong as 1960s recording artists...they should have stuck with it! With songs informed by their own personal Brit oddyssey through 1960s California and their support for RFK's presidential campaign, this is a very fitting addition to the great run of Psychpop we've had lately...and one of the best! Our Price: £9.95

Crystal Blue Symphonies: The Psychedelic Years
Released 27/04/09. Wow, another in our splendid series of overlooked Psychpop...and what a corker it is! In Europe at least, Tommy James is kind of the forgotten man of the 1960s...hit after hit, and what's available in Europe? Nothing much! After a run of megahits that included ‘Mony Mony’ (come on, everyone remembers that!), Tommy was ready to unleash his very own psychpop masterpieces…two fabulous albums released in short order, Crimson and Clover and Cellophane Symphony…veritable orgies of bendy pop, psych extravaganzas, early Moogs, theremins and tremolo! These are two albums long overdue for the RevOla treatment and here they are both in one handy place! Our Price: £9.95
