Vinyl only, limited.

Verckys & Orchestre Veve: Congolese Funk, Afrobeat & Psychedelic Rumba 1969-78 (Analog Africa)

Congo's turbulent and exhilarating 70s nightclubs and dancefloors were packed to the brim in the capital, Kinshasa. In fact, the whole continent was submerged in the Congolese rumba craze. One of the most talented new musicians was Verckys. His formation of Orcheste Veve in 1968 had the aim of reinventing and modernizing the Congolese sound. Blending the ever-influential prowess of James Brown with Congolese merengue, rumba, and soukous, Verckys stripped away the conventional approach, allowing his saxophone-laced melodies to dominate. James Brown, upon seeing Verckys perform that year, was moved to dub him "Mister Dynamite." Analog Africa welcomes you to the grooviest era of the Congo with a CD accompanied by in-depth liner notes and vintage photographs.

Dynamite Hemorrhange Magazine - Issue #2

"Issue #2 of Dynamite Hemorrhage features: an interview and retrospective with Bill Direen, the New Zealand-based musical iconoclast and creator of some of the most weird and wonderful underground pop music of the last 35 years; Tim Warren from Crypt Records, on the eve of two new volumes of the mind-destroying Back from the Grave 60s punk comps, takes us through how he's been putting these comps together since 1983 and the pain he's endured to make sure we get to hear some of the most raw and rare rocknroll chaos of all time; interviews with current musical superstars Honey Radar, Nots, and King Tears Mortuary; Erika Elizabeth's overview of lost and neglected female-fronted punk and post-punk bands and records you've never heard of; The Layman's Guide to 70s Jamaican dub - an overview of wild, werid, and wacked dub reggae during its peak era; Interviews with Jon Savage and Stuart Baker on the new Punk 45 series of archival 70s punk reissues; 87 record reviews; and 15 book reviews."

Govt Mule - Darkside of the Mule (Evil Teen)

In a curveball mode, and for the first time in its 20 year career, Gov't Mule has delved into its vaults to create multiple configurations of its fabled Halloween 2008 performance at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. The show featured a long and varied set of impassioned, expertly executed Pink Floyd covers (spanning 80+ mins) as only the Mule can deliver, with guest saxophonist Ron Holloways.

Fantomas - Wunderkammer LP box (Ipecac)

Delayed from Black Friday, but available NOW! This limited edition, over the top package includes vinyl versions of all of the Fantômas records plus a cassette copy of the original Fantomas demo that Mike Patton used to recruit the other members. Neat, huh?

Del Shannon - The Further Adventures of Charles Westover LP (Trouble in Mind)

Trouble In Mind is honored to be reissuing Del Shannon's 1968 misunderstood masterpiece on vinyl for the first time since it's original release. Two fruitful recording sessions with producers Dugg Brown & Dan Bourgoise birthed the twelve songs comprising "The Further Adventures of Charles Westover", an inspired suite of tunes sharing more in common with The Zombies or The Left Banke than his previous hits "Runaway" or "Little Town Flirt" It was a new beginning for Shannon that should have opened the door to many more inspiring & ambitious albums.
