Che Guevara - Various. CD. (Label: Warner Archives, Cat.No: 9903991602)
A musical tribute to the most iconic revolutionary figure of our time, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death in 1967. The Argentine-born Marxist revolutionary, political figure, and leader of Cuban and internationalist guerrillas, had travelled throughout South America while a medicine student. His experiences and observations during these trips led him to the conclusion that the region's socio-economic inequalities could only be remedied by revolution, prompting him to intensify his study of Marxism and travel to Guatemala to learn about the reforms being implemented there. This compilation by Milan Records gathers artists and songs that marked the revolutionary battles at the time of Che Guevara: Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Santana, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Victor Jara, Raul Seixa, Violeta Parra, Isabel Parra, Gato Barbieri, Tim Maia and many more like Irakere, Illapu et Inti Illimani.. Taken by Roger Pic, the album cover shows an extremely rare colour picture of Che.
The Changing of the Guard" is a unique music and dialogue sound collage of Swinging London in 1968; a time of exciting developments in all the artistic fields and a time when England set cultural standards that the world is still trying to emulate. Protagonists central to the scene are included here: Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones discussing revolution; his manager Andrew Loog Oldham explaining business philosophy; the young Michael Caine debating morals in the context of the permissive society; Julie Christie on fame and Lee Marvin on Mini cars and mini skirts! The dialogue is edited against brilliant historic London pop of the period: big hits such as The Small Face's 'Itchychoo Park' and 'Here Come The Nice', Chris Farlowe's memorable number one 'Out of Time', 'If Paradise is Half as Nice' by The Amen Corner and mercurial psychedelia; The Marquis of Kensington, Fleur De Lys, Duncan Browne, Billy Nicholls and the first line up of Humble Pie featuring Steve Marriott and "the Face Of 1968" - Peter Frampton. Special mention too for an early song from Vashti!

22 far-out pop/psych duos from the late ’60s.It pretty much began with Sonny and Cher. The success of co-ed pairings like Mimi and Richard and Nino and April had coffee house folkies shacking up in droves and soon every town had it’s own dynamic duo. There were variations too, John Phillips had two chicks so he had to find another Papa.Now hear the ones who didn’t quite crack the radio charts, at least not for long.

Randy & The Radiants - Memphis Beat - The Sun Recordings 1964 - 19666. CD. (Label: Big Beat, Cat.No: CDWIKD 267)
Amongst the last releases on Sun Records were a pair of singles by Randy & the Radiants, one of the most popular teen combos in Memphis in the mid-1960s. Sam Phillips’ attempt to get back at the British Invasion, they were more than just another Beatles knock off with their smooth harmonies and folk/ countrified arrangements as well as the in-house garage / pop songs that took them above the many pretenders to the throne. Many of these twenty four tracks, recorded with either Phillips himself or his son Knox are unisseud before now.
The British psychedelic scene has been so heavily anthologised over the years that many cult acts are now as familiar as the era’s major players. But while London-based bands like Tintern Abbey and Dantalian’s Chariot have belatedly received the attention that they deserve, the local group scenes that thrived up and down the country during the late Sixties remain a mystery to even the keenest collector. The first volume of a new series, this explores the secret garden with no less than twenty unreleased acetates and private tapes recorded by mostly unsigned provincial groups, the majority of whom weren’t even household names in their own households. With vital contributions from such local heroes as Peanut Rubble, So On & So Forth and Herbal Remedy, and featuring previously unreleased demos by major label acts The Carnaby, Sounds Around and West Coast Consortium, Psychedelic Schlemiels offers a fascinating window on a hitherto lost world of small-town suburban psychedelia. All twenty tracks unreleased at the time, and all previously unavailable on CD, with most making their first-ever appearance in any format 1. Elastic Band West Coast Consortium 2. Broken Man Peanut Rubble 3. Sweet Wine So On & So Forth 4. Try Me On For Size Those Fadin’ Colours5. When My Train Comes In Urban 6. Brave New Sights The Phoenix7.
