Title: Brown Acid - The Fifth Trip
Format: LP
Label: Ridingeasy
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"The hits just keep coming -- for this fifth lysergic journey, Riding Easy assembles ten heavy slabs of obscure rock the likes of which have never been seen before... not in this form, anyhow. And as usual, the tracks from these impossibly rare records have all been fully cleared through the artists themselves. Great lengths were gone to in order to get the best possible master sources, the worst case scenario being an original 45. The legendary Captain Foam kicks off this trip like an anvil to your skull with a rollicking stomper sounding like The Who with Matt Pikes thunderous guitar tone. No Reason wasnt easy to find, but lo and behold, the super sleuths located him and got his blessing to include the A-side of his sole single. Good luck finding an original copy of the record. Its rarer than raw beef -- and thats just the tip of the iceberg. The other nine tracks continue the onslaught in typical Brown Acid form: George Brigmans charmingly disjointed bedroom-fi production of Blowin Smoke, Finchs way out of time and place grungeadelic anthem Nothing In The Sun, Cybernauts heavy prog, Fargos hallucinogenic BBQ-sauce soaked Abaddon, Mammoths fittingly beefy eponymous riff-monger, Flashers Icky Bicky boogie, Ohio-based screamers Lance, Zebras gritty rendition of Helter Skelter and finally, the mysterious and previously unheard Thor appears here exclusively and for the first time ever with their unknown 45 track Lick It." - Ridingeasy.

Title: Brown Acid - The Fourth Trip
Format: LP
Label: Ridingeasy
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"If you thought we were getting close to the end of the Brown Acid series with our last Trip, you were dead wrong... were only just getting rolling. The well of privately released hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal 45s is deep and we are nowhere near tapped out. Most of these records were barely released and never properly distributed so they aint easy to find, but theyre out there if youre willing to dig... and we arent afraid to get our hands dirty. Hard calluses have formed from handling the shovel and weve sifted through a lot of dirt, but weve dug up another ten tremendous records to share with all the heavy heads out there. This volume brings together eight insanely rare and skull-crushingly heavy 45s as well as two previously unreleased bangers. You may remember the Zekes jaw dropper Box from the First Trip. If you dont, you better go back and refresh your memory, you stoner. That song rips! And so does this previously unheard recording we legally obtained from the Beverly Hills records vaults. Comin Back is the longest tune weve yet to include on this series and its a full-on rager! The only surviving copy of this recording came to us on the original 1/4" master tape from Hollywoods long-defunct Demars & Duffy Music. We did our best to preserve the recording and we think youll appreciate the rawness. There have been numerous groups named Bad Axe over the years, but the one you hear here is the baddest. This five-piece fresh outta high school kicked out this jam (and a few others) in a Chicago studio in 1973 just for the hell of it. As a garage band, they were previously named The Burlington Express and they went on to be known as Bitch, but these dudes hit their stride as Bad Axe and Coachman is their crowning achievement. It went completely unreleased until 2014 when Permanent Records issued it and Poor Man, Run as a limited edition 45 with a killer picture sleeve. Its long out-of-print and only obtainable now on Brown Acid. The rest of the records included on this volume vary in rarity, but at least two of them were virtually unknown until we discovered them. Youll win the lottery before you find copies of all of the original 45s in even the best record stores. Many of the records included in this volume are owned only by the members of the bands and some of the band members dont even have personal copies. Thats just how hard these guys hit it back in the day! Were lucky some of these guys are still alive and well enough to give us permission to use their masters. And for that, we thank them. And you, for all your support. Brown Acid is here to stay... as long as youll have us. Plug in, turn up, and freak out... this is what Rock n Roll is all about." - Ridingeasy.

Title: Brown Acid - The Sixth Trip
Format: LP
Label: Ridingeasy
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"Six volumes worth of licensed tracks released in just three years: doing the Dark Lords work isnt an easy job, but somebodys gotta do it, so here is Brown Acid - The Sixth Trip, with more lined up. The heads just cant get enough obscure hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal from the late60s and 70s! This time around Riding Easy present ten deep cuts from across the continental USA and one from the neighbors up North. This trip kicks off with an outrageous number from Gold out of San Francisco circa 1970. The band used to open their sets with this over-the-top frantic jammer which is absolutely mind-blowing! Delving deeper into the depths, Canadians continue to prove that they could bang heads with the best of em! Heat Exchange from Toronto released the rollicking ripper Inferno on the Yorkville label way back in 1968 and its still thumping almost fifty years later. Some more examples of the mind-melting tracks on this platter: Missouri isnt a state that brought us a lot of heavy 45s, but there are a handful of outstanding tracks, one of which is the funk-laced anthem Give Me Time by Backwood Memory from Kansas City. Youngstown, Ohio, meanwhile, might have been the Hard Rock Mecca back in the day. Travis is yet another Youngstown group that aimed to get asses out of seats and out in the streets. Truth & Janey had their incredible proto-metal masterpiece 1976 album No Rest For The Wicked; released four years earlier, Midnight Horseman was a 45-only track, included here! Those are just some of the fruits of months worth of record digging and detective work included on this latest installment. This is the stuff that makes life worth living, at least until the next Trip..." - Ridingeasy.
