Artist: CROMAGNON
Title: Cave Rock
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Originally released in 1969, Cromagnons Cave Rock strings together a patchwork of untamed sounds and mental images which perfectly articulate the boundary-breaking psychedelic revolution that was occurring at the time -- musically and socially. Widely heralded as the best freak-out record of all time, Cromagnons Cave Rock is a captivating experience that engages the listener. The album surpassed even the most out there psychedelia of its day, predicting what would soon become the disjointed aural landscapes of Faust and the violent scuzz of Throbbing Gristle. Vivid elements of Cromagnons influence continues to shine in the lysergic rhythms of the Sun City Girls, Nurse With Wound, Ghost, and Animal Collective. Includes insert with the first documented history of Cromagnon." - Jackpot.

Artist: JANDEK
Title: Jandek Vinyl Box Set
Format: Triple LP Box Set
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $80.00
"Three essential Jandek recordings from one of the most respected but least heard artists of our time. Set includes: the outsider masterpiece Chair Beside a Window (1982), the haunting and lonely Six and Six (1981), and the murky, but delicate debut Ready for the House (1978). Jandeks past three decades of intense productivity have created 72 releases, yielded a depth of discussion amongst critics and fans, a feature length documentary, and only a smattering of live performances. Tribute CDs featuring Bright Eyes, Low, Wilcos Jeff Tweedy, and Mountain Goats help to illustrate Jandeks influence on todays artists. No amount of time or experience can prepare a listener for the experience of Jandek. Working in direct collaboration with Corwood Industries, Jackpot Records is thrilled to offer this heavyweight vinyl edition box set for Record Store Day 2013. Limited to 500 hand numbered copies. Includes three exclusive posters and insert." -Jackpot.

Artist: JANDEK
Title: Six and Six
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Originally released in 1981, following a three year gap between the release of debut LP Ready For The House, Jandeks second album Six And Six stands as an incredible document of the formative stages of his cracked genius. Following the astonishingly bleak tone of the first LP, the musical elements are almost catatonic. 9 songs drift by as a series of slight variations on several desolate, untuned acoustic guitar phrases. The meditative, steady music forms a dark backdrop for some of Jandeks more vivid and poetic lyrical thoughts. Universal doom, loner dirges and sea-themed ruminations are all present. This is far and away the core of what was to come, in its most succinct and coincidentally most haunted form. This album was also the first to incorporate an image of Jandek on the cover, both giving a face to the sounds and hinting at what would become a prolific series of incredible, disturbed albums. Vinyl for this album has been unavailable since the initial pressing ran out, and has been sought ravenously by collectors ever since. Working in direct collaboration with Corwood Industries, were thrilled to offer this exact repress, heavyweight-vinyl edition. An astonishingly ghostly album, unlike anything else and also unique to this particular phase in Jandeks evolution, Six And Six is a crucial piece of the puzzle that we can only hope never gets solved completely." -Jackpot

Artist: LAZY SMOKE
Title: Corridor Of Faces
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"In a genre built on obscured and unsung genius, Corridor Of Faces transcends and stands out as a true psyche masterpiece. Rising above any number of recently unearthed late-60s anglo-pop platters, the sole offering from small town Massachusetts phenomenon Lazy Smoke is a cohesive, solid, classic album in every sense. Ten songs that weave into one-another, painting some beautifully drifty sonic picture as they go. The first remarkable trait of Lazy Smokes sound is the lead vocals uncanny similarity to John Lennon. If that likeness was the whole story, we would have a Beatles sound-alike on our hands, and that would be that. Upon digging just a little deeper below the surface, we instead find a darker tone and a patient, eerie and almost shut-in feeling resonating through the songs. While bands like The Beatles and The Left Banke were singing about love, lament and hallucinated travel experiences, the songs on Corridor Of Faces get sincerely dark right away. Even the seemingly-light teenage love-themed Sarah Saturday shares an undercurrent of on-the-edge uncertainty and dread. Its this undercurrent that calls to mind comparisons to Forever Changes-era Love and the more damaged end of the pop spectrum. Originally privately pressed in MA in an edition of only 500 copies in 1968. Features original cover art, printed inner sleeve with rare photos and band history." -Jackpot.

Artist: MIJ
Title: Yodeling Astrologer
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Yodeling Astrologer (aka: Color By The Number) could be considered an anomaly, a one-off or a miracle of circumstance in the history of psychedelic pop music. Mij, a.k.a. Jim Holmberg was discovered by ESP owners while playing in Washington Square Park in the summer of 1968. His style and persona mesmerized the label heads, and he explained to them a recent auto accident had fractured his skull but left him changed. He perceived sound, color and vision differently and he had funneled this new world of perception directly into his music. All this was enough to warrant getting Mij into the studio to lay down a record of his rambly, cosmic folk songs. The entire album was recorded in three hours, first-takes and impromptu production intact, then pressed up and introduced to the world shortly thereafter. To focus on the yodeling aspect of the Yodeling Astrologer would miss some of the depth of this album. Not just a hippie novelty act of the time, this is a truly thoughtful and somewhat frenzied document. Like Buffy St. Maries Meditations, Linda Perhacs Parallelograms or Cold Fact by Rodriguez, this is an album of sincere folk songs colored with subtle psychedelic touches. Uneasy reverberations and soft echoes glide over Holmbergs breezy songs, creating a consistent sonic environment as spontaneous as it is intriguing. Available on vinyl for the first time since an incredibly limited original pressing in 1969 on ESP Disk." -Jackpot

Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA

2016 splatter-color vinyl repress. "Initially released in July of 1970, five hundred copies were pressed. Subsequently, auctions on Ebay for an original vinyl LP go for $2000. The New Dawns Theres A New Dawn has been hailed as one of the rarest and best psych albums to come out of the late 60s/early 70s.

Artist: SILVER APPLES
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"Formed in 1967 as a psychedelic electronic duo featuring Dan Taylor on drums and Simeon on a homemade synthesizer consisting of 12 oscillators (and an assortment of sound filters, telegraph keys, radio parts, lab gear and a variety of second hand electronic junk), Silver Apples quickly gained a reputation as New Yorks leading underground musical expression. Their pulsating rhythmic beats with the use of electronics laid the groundwork for what would become “Krautrock” Silver Apples was released in 1968 and still remains an innovative and revolutionary album. Their highly influential sound has influenced countless bands from Stereolab, Beastie Boys, Blur and more." - Jackpot.

Artist: SKABBS
Title: Idle Threat
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Jackpot Records is proud to present Idle Threat, a collection of never before issued recordings from 1977-78 Lawndale, California punks, The Skabbs. In tandem with the birth of punk, these music obsessed nerds, bored and listless at the end of the 70s, became disenchanted with the increasingly plastic tendencies of modern music. The Skabbs concocted some truly outsider sounds, melding jagged Devo-esque rhythms with lightning-fast technical touches that predicted the Minutemen by a few years. Sadly, the band was cut short in 1979 when songwriter and frontman, Steven Joseph Salazar dies at just 26 years old from a life-long heart condition. In their grief, The Skabbs choose to disband burying Salazars legacy of songs with their sorrow. In retrospect, The Skabbs steadily became a scene unto themselves, making a proto-punk sound guided by a mission to simply make music that sounded less gross than Foreigner. With the exception of being recorded by SST producing genius Spot, The Skabbs were considered too weird for the art crowd and just terrified the hippies." - Jackpot.

Artist: WIPERS
Title: The Power In One
Format: LP
Label: Jackpot
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"The Wipers The Power in One became the final Wipers recording. Recorded in 1998 by Greg Sage, all tracks were recorded through vacuum tubes. As with every Wipers LP I would spend many months observing people and their situations to get ideas of what was in their mind and their motivations. This was always where the inspiration would come from for our songs. I would get a glimpse of the future by doing this and it was easy to write songs that would make sense 10 years from then. The Wipers songs and sound has always been a reflection of real life. I would look for raw and powerful emotions to write about, things that would bring a sense and illusion of realism, this would make our LPs more personal to the listener. I got so many songs from just walking the streets of Portland and watching people. - Greg Sage (The Wipers). Re-mastered from the original tapes." - Jackpot.
