Gene ClarkOne in a Hundred / She’s the Kind of Girl 7" Single
S 240 | 7" Single
Limited Edition Record Store Day Release!
The long-lost Byrds recordings... An under-the-radar Byrds' reunion took place in 1970 when the other four founding members of the pioneering folk-rock group were invited to back up their principal songwriter and one-time frontman Gene Clark on two of Clark’s finest compositions. Under the auspices of original Byrds' manager Jim Dickson, the session results were exquisite; each song a shining example of the Byrds’ timelessly transcendent sound. The ever-chiming “One in a Hundred” and delicate “She’s the Kind of Girl” (with subtle flute flourishes from Bud Shank) both undeniably bore the Byrds' signature sound. The proposed single should have been a huge hit for Gene...but like much of his post-Byrds career, bad luck intervened, as contractual obligations prevented the release of the single.
Sundazed is elated to now present these legendary recordings here in their original, "unsweetened" form, sourced from the surviving, original rough-mix mono reels. Making for an exceptional single, these truly are the long-lost Byrds tracks.
TRACK LIST:1. One in a Hundred2. She’s the Kind of Girl
Doug Dillard and Gene ClarkWhy Not Your Baby / Lyin’ Down The Middle 7" Single
S 241 | 7" Single
Both tracks originally NON-LP sides—together here for the first time as a single!
Following the '68 release of the groundbreaking album The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark, Gene Clark and Doug Dillard returned to the studio in early '69 to record a new single for A&M. Country-rock was still in its formative stage and was certainly considered a commercial risk. The result was stunning. “Lyin’ Down the Middle” unveiled itself as an infectious, uptempo country rocker, featuring one of Gene Clark’s most inspired vocals and further enhanced by future-Eagle Bernie Leadon’s supremely tasteful guitar-picking. For a follow-up single release just a few short months later, Dillard & Clark cut the lushly orchestrated Clark composition “Why Not Your Baby." Boasting gorgeous harmonies and soaring strings, the recording remains one of the strongest in Clark's repertoire, and one of the finest examples of the sound of country meeting rock.
Remarkably, both “Lyin’ Down the Middle” and “Why Not Your Baby” were issued ONLY as single sides at the time by A&M; they were not included on any original Dillard & Clark album. Proudly presented here from the original A&M mono masters, this re-imagined single reveals Dillard & Clark sailing forefront of the nascent California country-rock movement.
TRACK LIST:1. Why Not Your Baby2. Lyin’ Down The Middle
Chocolate Watch BandIn the Midnight Hour / Psychedelic Trip 7" Single
S 242 | 7" Single
Was there a more influential band from the West Coast’s Class of ’66 punks??? If any convincing is required, listen no further than the Watch Band’s pulverizing take on “In the Midnight Hour.” In a tradition established with their first official single, “Sweet Young Thing,” this outtake features an absolutely stunning rhythm track coupled with frontman Dave Aguilar’s raving original vocal. Definitive! (Inexplicably, the orig. producers chose to replace Aguilar’s superior vocal for the officially-released version that appeared on the group’s No Way Out LP.) As for the instro outtake “Psychedelic Trip,” by the time Aguilar added lyrics and vocal to this off-the-cuff studio jam, it had transformed into the epochal track “No Way Out.” As the name implies, “Psychedelic Trip” is Chocolate Watch Band at its most mind-blowing; with lead guitarist Mark Loomis instinctively taking off into the cosmic, improvisational zone. Sundazed proudly presents this jaw-dropping single-that-never-was in powerhouse mono, from the mighty, original Tower masters!
TRACK LIST:1. In the Midnight Hour2. Psychedelic Trip
Bloos MagoosSo I’m Wrong And You Are Right / Wild About My Lovin’ / The People Had No Faces 7" EP
SEP 244 | 7" Single
In January 1967, the Blues Magoos were at the top of the garage game. Their classic, “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet” was Top 5 nationally; they had a hit album and nationwide TV exposure. But one year earlier, it was a different story. As the Bloos Magoos, their debut 45, “So I’m Wrong and You Are Right” / “The People Had No Faces” was completely ignored upon its release in January ’66. What a damn shame! “So I’m Wrong and You Are Right” is a tough protest lyric set to the Magoos’ short-lived folk-rock fixation. Also firmly in the same bag, “The People Had No Faces” is a weird, wonderful little nugget in the band’s catalog. On both tracks, Ralph Scala (Ralph Magoo) delivers up two of his most inspired lead vocals. Importantly, leading up to this lost session, a nascent Magoos hustled their way into regular work at the legendary Night Owl Café in Greenwich Village, the launch site for the Lovin’ Spoonful. For that Spoonful/Night Owl influence, look no further than the previously unreleased “Wild About My Lovin’" from that very same studio date featuring Zal-style reverb and the most sensationally trashy drums this side of the Spoonful’s appearance on The Big T.N.T. Show. Cut from the original Verve-Folkways mono masters, Sundazed is proud to showcase the Magoo' famously lost '65 session!

Captain Beefheart & His Magic BandDiddy Wah Diddy / Who Do You Think You’re Fooling / Moonchild / Frying Pan Double 7" Set
SEP 243 | Double 7" Gatefold Set
Upon signing with A&M Records, Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band debuted loudly, recording two singles in 1966, cementing their image as Sunset Strip "blues fiends" and paving the way for what was to become one of the most original careers in rock history. The band's cover of Bo Diddley's "Diddy Wah Diddy" garnered significant regional attention & considerable radio play courtesy of the Captain's unreal howl & Jerry Handley's deep, thundering bass sound, while the driving delta tributes "Who Do You Think You're Fooling" & "Frying Pan" sharply displayed the Captain's early songwriting prowess. While the Magic Band's musical course were soon to evolve in drastic & original ways, it's these early sides that depict a developed blues foundation and a signature tightness that was threaded through all Magic Bands to come. Sundazed now proudly presents these legendary recordings in double 7" 45rpm gatefold edition, all sides cut from the original A&M mono masters.

The Blues ProjectParchman Farm / Bright Lights, Big City 7" Single
S 245 | 7" Single
In their relatively short lifespan, the visionary Blues Project—which included fabled guitar master Danny Kalb and legendary keyboardist Al Kooper—pioneered a dynamic fusion of blues, folk-rock, psychedelia and improvisational instrumentals. Far ahead of its time, the Blues Project fine-tuned their eclecticism and built their reputation through their electrifying live shows in NYC. Appropriately, the group made their recorded debut with Live at the Cafe Au Go Go, which captured the group at the peak of its power, during a week-long stand in November 1965 at the titular Greenwich Village club. This historic set of recordings also yielded a good deal of marvelous material that was left off the BP's first album. Two of those long-lost performances are featured here–the band’s raw 'n mighty readings of a pair of blues classics, Mose Allison’s “Parchman Farm” and Jimmy Reed’s “Bright Lights, Big City.” Sundazed is proud to present these two tracks for the first time on vinyl, direct from the original Verve Folkways mono masters.
TRACK LIST:1. Parchman Farm2. Bright Lights, Big City
The ByrdsI’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better / It’s No Use 7" Single
S 247 | 7" Single
Limited Edition Record Store Day ReleasE on colored vinyl!
The Byrds’ “Mr. Tambourine Man” played a massive role in defining rock music in the sixties: it introduced the song’s composer to a wider – and younger – rock audience and, more than any other recording or event, it ushered in the reigning sound of ’65, folk-rock. But most importantly, it announced one of the essential musical experiences of the era, The Byrds. And if “Mr. Tambourine Man” sounded like an electric symphony, Gene Clark’s “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better” captured the group’s need to let loose musically with a thrilling up-tempo arrangement - one that would launch a thousand U.S. garage bands. Clark's unparalleled gift for songwriting was matched by a unique, at times world weary vocal delivery which is perfectly captured on the rare, alternate vocal take version of “I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better,” included here. Also from the Mr. Tambourine Man album sessions, “It’s No Use” demonstrates that a raw Byrds album outtake is as good or better than most band’s finished masters. Sourced from the original, Columbia Records mono masters, these songs evoke the excitement of the Byrds at take-off, blowing minds and filling the dance floor at Ciro’s on the Sunset Strip.
TRACK LIST:1. I’ll Feel A Whole Lot Better (alternate vocal track/take 2 version)2. It’s No Use (alternate lead guitar overdub)
Paul Revere & the RaidersRide Your Pony / (You're a) Bad Girl 7" Single
S 248 | 7" Single
Limited Edition Record Store Day Release on colored vinyl!
Paul Revere & the Raiders delivered a ton of magnificent flavors during their '59–'72 run as hit-makers, from boogie and rhythm & blues to lush psych-pop. However, the years 1965 and 1966 may well be the group's most beloved era, when the Raiders drove their Pacific Northwest grind head-on into the incoming Brit Invasion sounds of the Animals and the Kinks. The result? ’60s Garage Punk. And two originally unissued numbers from this prime moment are featured here. An August '65 cover of Lee Dorsey’s “Ride Your Pony” is stock Raiders at their most floor-filling, featuring Mark Lindsay’s demanding vocals, Paul Revere's churning Vox organ, and an incessant riff from the group’s scale-tipping lead guitarist, Drake Levin. On the flipside, “(You’re a) Bad Girl” is one full summer’s leap (recorded in July ’66), and is a stunning folk-punk romp. Lindsay provides taunting, deep, Jagger-esque verses, a pounding rhythm section is provided by bassist Phil Volk and drummer Mike Smith, and Jim Valley (new to the group) perfectly contributes to the legendary twin-guitar sound that producer Terry Melcher would often add to the Raiders mix. We're proud to bring you this mighty pairing–the first time on vinyl for both tracks, and direct from the original Columbia Records mono masters!
TRACK LIST:1. Ride Your Pony2. (You’re A) Bad Girl

The NeanderthalsGroovy Dances / How Can I Make Her Mine 7" Single
Spin 024 | 7" Single
Hailing from a Paleolithic-era settlement near Albany, NY—Johnny Rabb and Eddie Angel’s fur-clad primitivism has been delighting Homo Sapiens (and Cro-Magnons) for epochs. Historians are rethinking which was invented first—the wheel, or the electric guitar—after discovering these Stone Cylinder recordings. Anticipating the sounds of Link Wray and the Kingsmen, the Neanderthals certainly predate the invention of the garage, and can only be described as the world’s only cave-rock band. Here they offer up two raunchy, wild dance songs that were no doubt part of some ritualistic dance party. These songs will definitely get you doing the Twist, whether or not you have opposable thumbs. The Neanderthals have headlined concert halls and beer joints around the world...Australia, Spain, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Germany, England and Troy, NY...their philosophy has remained the same: rock ’n’ roll should always aspire to be as fun as “Louie Louie,” as raw as “Rumble” and as meaningful as “Surfin’ Bird!”
TRACK LIST:1. Groovy Dances2. How Can I Make Her Mine
In a special arrangement with Spinout Records:
The Martian Denny OrchestraCrossfire / The 2000 Pound Bee-Part 2 7" Single
Spin 026| 7" Single
The Martian Denny Orchestra hail from a planet where every TV program is brought to you in living color, the number one movie at the box office is The Horror of Party Beach and five of the ten top albums are by the Ventures, Santo & Johnny, Link Wray, Billy Mure and the Spotnicks. They've landed in Nashville, and have begun unleashing their brand of dazzling atomic instrumentals upon an unsuspecting public. Guitarist Eddie Angel shakes up the world of indie-rock with Los Straitjackets and the Planet Rockers. Guitarist Bob Irwin, the man behind famed reissue label Sundazed Music, is the fretboard whiz of New York’s Pluto Walkers. Dave Roe played bass for Johnny Cash and works the same magic for John Mellencamp and many others. Jim Hoke plays steel guitar and woodwinds for NRBQ, Toby Keith and others. The rock-solid beat comes courtesy of the mighty Jimmy Lester, the original skinsman of Los Straitjackets and now with Webb Wilder’s honky tonk hellions. The M.D.O. has only one M.O., and that's to get the Action Set stomping to a twangy beat—one that would make Duane Eddy proud!!

as someone who spends a shitload of time in record shops.. i'm not excited by the prospect of (mostly) overpriced major-label rehashes of old material which comprises the bulk of the RSD list...
....but as a mechanism of getting those who don't go to indie record shops to get their music fix to change their behaviour by offering limited edition goodies, and to help those shops make a bit more money to keep them going - i'm all for it...
If RSD enables shops to make a bit more profit to enable them to stay open in difficult times, then it's served its purpose as far as i'm concerned..
So have a great Record Store Day everyone, but especially if you work in a store!

I didn't go to the first 2 Record Store Days because I didn't live near a record store. Now I live near one but I probably won't bother going because:
1. queuing for a tiny chance at an expensive limited edition record, which I just tick off a list instead of looking at before I buy, and no chance to browse the rest of the stock = zzz. I like record shopping mainly for seeing what's in the used racks and bargain bins, not for paying £30 for a 200gsm limited edition of my, like, 15th choice picked off a list.
2. I find it highly unlikely that my local shop has signed up for the exclusives I'm most interested in. I'm fairly sure the Circle or Bitchin Bajas LPs are not coming to my town this year, just like the Purling Hiss / Puffy Aerolas split didn't come to my town last year, because where I live those bands would be kind of niche and the record shop would surely rather stock Arcade Monkey Bowie Dylan reissue shovelware which will definitely sell (and be on eBay the next day)
I might head down for the instore later on, but it will be basically impossible to buy anything once there are bands and amps and 20-30 spectators crammed into a shop barely bigger than my bedroom, so that's not a great win for the shop either.
(PS still hope everyone who works in a store has a good day and makes $$$, everyone who goes to one gets something they want and will actually listen to instead of selling unheard, etc)

Waited in line outside Phonica in London for a good two hours this morning, mainly in the hope of getting that Tindersticks 10" (I didn't). Some of the people at the front of the line were coming out with stacks of vinyl - call me a cynic, but I can't imagine they were planning on listening to those records...
Anyway, I bought a few overpriced singles, and that John Cale ep, but I do feel like a bit of a tit for getting suckered in by the whole thing.

People who are against RSD seem to think it is all about the limited releases. That was just supposed to be part of the incentive, and contribution to the festivities by the labels. The stores who get it are the ones that do DJ sets all day, in-store performances, BBQs, sales on general stock, etc. This is a day to strengthen the idea of a community to support record stores. It's not Record Label Day so stop treating it that way. Few places require you to stand in line after the doors open anyway.
