Artist: LUIE LUIE
Title: Touchy
Format: CD
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Some years ago, a Los Angeles area collector stumbled across an orphaned copy of Touchy in a thrift store. It was shared through tape trading networks and bootlegged on vinyl -- now, Companion Records is proudly offering this first official Touchy CD release. Luie Luie has to be the most jaw-dropping one-man band lounge act found to date. Touchy serves as a conceptual dance album, an experimental album, as well as a sort of healing LP for 60s burn-outs. What can his music be compared to? Nothing that we know of. Luis Johnston is a Southern California screenwriter, painter, and musician whos spent the past 30 years working in almost complete obscurity. But hes also written and starred in a feature film and shaken hands with Elvis Presley. Luie has been playing live at various restaurants, lounges, and country clubs for three decades and is still going strong. He released a handful of 45s in the 70s and one full-length LP, Touchy in 1974. And he continues to record unknown quantities of yet-to-be-released CDs. This deluxe CD version is housed in a digipak sleeve, includes 2 Touchy buttons, a 20-page booklet with rare photos, concert flyers, art work, and a new introduction from Luie himself which sheds some light on his original inspiration for the album." - Companion

Artist: MEDICO DOKTOR VIBES
Title: Liter Thru Dorker Vibes
Format: LP
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $32.00
2016 repress. "The first licensed reissue of Médico Doktor Vibes mysterious Liter Thru Dorker Vibes LP from 1979 is now available. We feel privileged to have the opportunity to offer this singular recording. Five hundred exact repro copies were pressed at RTI with crisp, heavy, old-style tip-in jackets produced by Stoughton. Turns out these seven songs are Guyanese-American artist Bill Russells only recordings. Bill had 100 vinyl copies pressed up in 1979 on his own Bi-Russell Records label, promoted it modestly and locally, and it went nowhere. Thirty-some years later, in a kind of message in a bottle-type scenario, one of those copies ended up at the Oakland Coliseum Flea Market and found its way into our hands. Inspired by army pals who were recording and releasing music without any label backing, Russell bought a Fender Telecaster and a Korg Mini and recorded Liter Thru Dorker Vibes in a makeshift home studio in South Central L.A. in just a few short sessions. When asked about his influences he insta-mentioned Santana and then added Hendrix, Sly Stone, Jobim, along with some New Orleans jazz stuff as well. For fun well go ahead and recommend this to any fan of Suicide, Cymande, Steve Reich, Nadi Qamar, Otis G. Johnson, Lord Invader, Bruce Haack, TJ Hustler, T-Rex, Heitkotter, Edward Larry Gordon, Madrigal, or The Mind Expanders." - Companion.

Artist: MISTRESS MARY
Title: Housewife
Format: LP
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $31.00
"We are thrilled to offer the first and only licensed reissue of Mistress Mary Housewife, an obscure Southern California songwriting demo issued privately in 1969. This is Marys one and only recording and shes backed here by Carl Walden, Clarence White, Johnny Redd (and other yet to be identified session players) from the late 60s Byrds, Burrito Bros country rock scene. Brilliantly packaged with lush glamour girl photo front and hand-penned liners/bored housewife pics back (sharply introducing herself as Wife - Mother - Civic Leader - etc. - Artiste.) 500 original copies of the album were cut as a demo and maybe 50 of those were sent out as promos to industry folks (she saw to it that one made its way to Elvis Presley). Walden & producer Darrell Cotton thought the world of Mary and encouraged her efforts but after a year or two of little response she moved on to one of her many other careers including stints as an auto mechanics instructor for women, running a class on female self-defense, belly dance instruction, and a lucrative multi-year gig as a disco dance instructor. This faithful reissue was pressed at RTI with heavy, old style tip-in jackets produced by Stoughton. Alternate takes of And I Didnt Want You and My Country Boy and another track left off of the LP are included on a download card." - Companion.

Artist: MUNDY, MARK
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
A CD reissue of MARC MUNDYs self-titled 1971 LP; a truly unique, privately-issued curiosity rescued from obscurity by trailblazing collector Paul Major. Many (Mid)East/West crossover albums surfaced during the psychedelic era but none that sound quite like Mundys. "Youll have a hard time finding another LP to compare with this combination of feeling and sound," Major claims. The emotional effect of Mundys vocals coupled with his bands irresistible groove is a strange pairing-one could argue that the two are at odds with each other, but the result is a sound and feel so unique and compelling to the ears, it has to be in a class all its own. "In one stroke, impossibly good and charmingly average. How could this record exist? How could it not exist? Distant foretelling of East Coast new wave (recorded in 1970?!), but built on a Turkish rock, Marc sincerely doles out musical xs and os, eager to please, wanting to be loved. This was supposed to be top of the pops-it didnt work out but this record is still pure Turkish delight." - Companion.

Artist: NEW CREATION
Title: Troubled
Format: CD
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Welcome to the first commercial release of Troubled, the sole output from Vancouver, British Columbias all-but-forgotten Jesus rock trio, the New Creation. Originally pressed in 1970 in the vinyl LP format in a limited run, this album never quite made it out of its hometown borders. It would be another two or three decades before anyone outside of the groups small circle would hear it at all. The obscurity of this album is impossible to overstate. Only 100 vinyl copies were ever produced and none were available commercially. The New Creation were partly inspired by the music of the Jesus People movement, a Christian adaptation of the 60s movement, which shared the same Haight-Ashbury district birthplace. Jesus People patterned their language, fashion, and music after their hippie neighbors in an attempt to update their expression of faith. This street level movement gained mainstream media exposure around 1970 and within a year cover stories ran in Newsweek, Life, and U.S. News and World Report. Musicians in this scene plotted their own course in an attempt to counteract what they saw as the destructive themes in much of mainstream rock music. Acts born out of this grassroots movement would inspire believers worldwide to cut their own record -- contract or no contract." - Companion. "A showcase of raw, inventive musicality. Categorically, its -- I dunno -- Sixties Garage Godcore? Yet it transcends being a mere period piece. The songwriting is deliriously brilliant, the lyrical perspective haunting. The bands sincerity is unquestionable, even if its meters are unfathomable." - Irwin Chusid.
SOLD OUT

Artist: NEW CREATION
Title: Troubled
Format: LP
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $33.00
2016 repress. "We are thrilled to present the first vinyl reissue of Troubled. Originally pressed in 1970, this extraordinary garage demo barely made it outside of its hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. We hope this vinyl edition will reach folks who were allergic to checking it out in CD form. For the LP, 500 exact repro copies were pressed at RTI with heavy, textured jackets produced by Stoughton. Just like the original these were printed by letterpress." - Companion
"The New Creation is amongst my favorites, the sincerity and verve in the performances remain fresh to the ear and heart thirty years later. Every track here is a magical doorway into a time when liberal thinking was ascendant, minds were expanding, music was filled with new ideas, and the kids were ready to fly as soon as they mastered a few guitar chords. The opening sound collage here may as well have been titled "Food for Thought," seems like every issue and idea except the kitchen sink is expressed. Each track on this LP is a potential personal fave, from the VU stylin "Sodom & Gomorrah" to the achingly beautiful "Wind." Spiritual Revolution, "That irresistible Man from Galilee is quite upsetting the show!"..."Here in the 20th century, fantastic times with God!" Indeed. Circular melodies, terrific melodic garage band atmosphere -- this is a special experience, and one that gets better with every play. Long live the New Creation!" - Paul Major, vinyl archaeologist, co-editor of Enjoy the Experience.

Artist: TWEDDLE, CHARLIE
Title: The Fantastic Greatest Hits by Eilrahc Elddewt
Format: CD
Label: Companion
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Charlie Tweddles album The Fantastic Greatest Hits by Eilrahc Elddewt is an outsider folk gem. Try to imagine Bob Dylans unreleased basement tapes with the Band accompanied by French musique concrete composer Luc Ferraris masterpiece of natural sound Presque Rien, and youll get an idea of the brilliance to be found on this privately pressed, head-scratchingly amazing opus of Appalachian psychedelia. Originally from Kentucky, Tweddle found himself ensconced in the Haight-Ashbury scene in the late-60s where he experimented with a good deal of LSD." - Other Music. "Reissue of eccentric folk artist Charlie Tweddles self-released 1974 LP Fantastic Greatest Hits, a unique blend of psychedelic country and tape experiments. Charlie felt sure his new style of music would take the world by storm -- it didnt work out that way. Recorded in 1971, 500 copies of Fantastic Greatest Hits were pressed in 1974 under the name Eilrahc Elddewt with extravagant packaging. The LP was hand-distributed and received only minimal positive feedback; sales were poor. Why? Well for one, side two of the album is 25 minutes of chirping crickets and sound fragments. The abrupt patches of dead air on side one probably didnt help much either. More than a few of these albums were returned as defective. Of course, all of these production moves were intentional. The CD was transferred from a copy of the original album. It includes six unreleased tracks from the same period as well as all of the original artwork in a fold-out digipak." - Companion. "One of the more significant outsider 70s albums to finally get a reissue. Originally recorded in 1971 and rarely ever seen, never previously bootlegged even. High quality digipak packaging, with 6 bonus tracks." - FE. Highly Recommended!
