Artist: BLUE CHEER
Title: 7
Format: LP
Label: Shroomangel
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
“Blue Cheer 7 represents a rare look at the worlds first true Heavy Metal Blues Band during a late 70s reincarnation which was closest to the sound of their original great success with "Vincebus Eruptum," their million selling debut. "In 1972, the late Dickie Peterson, walked out of the studio after announcing Blue Cheer was finished, after punching his drummer in the mouth for trying to make him drink carrot juice. Despite a glowing review of their sixth LP, "Oh! Pleasant Hope!" by Lester Bangs in Rolling Stone, the bands demise was swift, and about as loud as one hand clapping. Peterson, by his own admission, struggled for years with drug and alcohol abuse, but wasn’t ready to give up on his band. In 1974, an association with Kim Fowley could not get the revamped Blue Cheer lineup a recording contract, though the demos they made together were quite good. Five years later, Dickie had another go at it, briefly enlisting guitarist, singer and songwriter Tony Rainier (whose older brother had been a Cheer roadie before dying in Vietnam) and drummer Michael Fleck." Raw, heavy, and straight to the point—a rare and wonderful glimpse of Dickie Petersons Blue Cheer. Produced by Eric Albronda and Jim Keylor. Recorded at Army Street Studios in 1979.” Limited, hand-numbered edition of 500 copies." - Shroomangel.

Artist: HEYOKA
Title: The Spirit of Revelation
Format: Dbl LP
Label: Shroomangel
Country: USA
Price: $37.00
"Mention Heyoka to any self respecting rock music head in Texas and theyll tell you about this legendary band, the greatest unsigned band ever to originate from that state. Heyoka captured the imagination of fans with a back story fueled by mystical Native American folklore and peyote dreams. They opened for Rush at Randys Rodeo, then managed to get plum slots opening for Sammy Hagar, Van Halen, Be-Bop Deluxe, Golden Earring, Budgie, Trapeze and Rick Derringer. The music video for "Video Madness" made it onto MTV—but was then unceremoniously banned. "Heyoka, like Ultra in San Antonio... really should have made it but didnt," concert promoter Jack Orbin says. "I think they were ahead of their time musically. They were progressive metal, and thats what exploded out of San Antonio. They were innovators." The music is reminiscent of Jethro Tull and Kansas, but retaining a unique quality all its own, evoking Native American imagery under the mystical guide of Black Elk. Tracks all from masters, recorded between the years 1977 and 1986, all previously unissued. High quality vinyl version 2-LP set comes with 12x24 poster." - Shroomangel.

Artist: SHOTGUN
Title: Dallasian Rock
Format: LP
Label: Shroomangel
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"A blend of hard hitting riff rock A la early Led Zeppelin and James Gang, with a guitar attack reminiscent of bands like Leafhound or Edgar Broughton Band. Tight, muscular, lean and mean urban blues rock riffage and soaring, soulful vocals, punchy bass and solid drumming make for a memorable set of songs that you wont soon forget. Shotgun had a successful career in and around Dallas, TX between 1974 and 1977, playing the club circuit and recording at the cities best studios. Sadly, nothing ever came of the recording sessions and Shotgun eventually morphed into VIZION, which released an album in 1980 that featured the vocals of Jan Houston. Finally after more than 38 years, Shotguns long lost studio sessions are presented for the first time ever on LP as they were meant to be heard." - Shroomangel. Limited edition of 500 copies.
