Artist: EMERALD WEB
Title: Dragon Wings And Wizard Tales
Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The first release from 1979 by new age/electronic duo EMERALD WEB, composed of husband and wife BOB STOHL and KAP EPPLE. Lots of trippy flute and synthesizer soundscapes with the odd vocal track from Epple. A unique sound somewhere between Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, and the Blade Runner soundtrack, all filtered through homemade found nature sound weirdness and naive studio trickery. The sound of South Florida getting kosmische." -Sebastian Speaks.
SOLD OUT

Artist: LUCAS, TED
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"The music of Ted Lucas has circulated through CD-Rs and blogs for years now. Although primarily known for this, his 1975 self-titled album (sometimes referred to as The OM Record), a legacy of hundreds of tapes decisively reveal one of the psychedelic eras most criminally-overlooked talents. Lucas studied with Ravi Shankar. He was the "exotic instruments specialist" for Motown and played sitar on many of their most famous productions. He rubbed shoulders with Alice Cooper and Ted Nugent and every other major player on the Detroit scene. His pioneering early psych rock bands The Spike Drivers and Misty Wizards managed to become legends with nothing more than a handful of singles. Stanley Mouse, prime image-maker for the Grateful Dead and friend of Ted, adapted the cover for Ted Lucas from his artwork for Jimi Hendrixs unfinished last album. Its the first appearance of the space scarab -- the UFO that would later become Journeys symbol. From brief, spontaneous ditties, predating the lo-fi indie movement by 20 years, to the epicly psychedelic sitar guitar ragas in Lucas signature loose string tunings, Lucas never wavered from his visceral, intensely honest vision. A self-taught master of many instruments and consummate do-it-yourselfer, Ted created a home studio and worked out new ways to tune his guitars. The pride he took in his craft and his attention to detail were inspiring and exasperating to all who knew him. His wit was legendary. The reasons for Lucas failure to break out of the Detroit scene would require, and probably deserve, a book-length investigation. His career provides insight on the difficulty of self-publishing and self-promotion in the pre-internet age. Without a doubt, things would have turned out very differently had he come up today. Lucas voice is unspeakably mellow, his guitar unbelievably gentle, and his arrangements absolutely impeccable. Do not miss this album. " - Sebastian Speaks.
SOLD OUT

Artist: V/A
Title: Hilarity and Despair: American Answering Machine Tapes 1
Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"These answering machine tapes were found in thrift stores and yard sales all over the Southeast over the course of a seven-year period and include some very bizarre chance finds. Sebastian Speaks Records have compiled these fragments of conversation, childrens pranks, bits of weary monologues, and dramas. A fascinating listen for those dismayed by the instant gratification and instant communication of the digital age." - Sebastian Speaks.
SOLD OUT

Artist: VILLEMONTE, JOHN
Title: People Like You
Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Incredibly haunting and lush private press gem from the mid-seventies. Wisconsin singer songwriter John Villemonte may be a native of the Midwest, but this rich album conjures up the same sort of hazy Southern California vibe as David Crosbys If I Could Only Remember My Name. There are some smooth stoned vibes here a la Bread, but with a slightly unsettled edge, especially on tracks like the gorgeous I Am the Moonlight, a song also featured on the Numero Groups stellar Lonesome Heroes compilation."- Sebastian Speaks.

"This record reminds me of what music made on a perfect evening on the edge of the Hawaiian rain forest, stoked on primo weed and some nice Pinot Noir, might sound like. All the women look like Peggy Lipton, all the men like Merrell Fankhauser." - Stan Denski, The Acid Archives.
SOLD OUT

Artist: WRAY, VERNON
Title: Wasted
Format: LP
Label: Sebastian Speaks
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Sebastian Speaks has just completed the reissue of VERNON WRAYs legendary and impossible to find Wasted LP from the early seventies. Its a remarkable country rock record with should-have-been classic songs, tasteful arrangements, and some serious downer moves. Its got shades of Kristofferson, Hazelwood, and of course the later work of Vernons own brother LINK WRAY. The LP has been completely remastered, and the insert features rare photos of Vernon and some very personal remembrances penned by his daughter SHERRY, who also co-produced this project." - Sebastian Speaks.
