  • Surfin' Dead - Dead-A-Rama + Powertwang 2CD (CD)


    The Surfin’ Dead is a hard edged instrumental surf band, led by the guitar of P Paul Fenech, founder of psychobilly genre legends The Meteors.
    Instrumentals have always played a part in The Meteors repertoire, and the band has released two all-instrumental collections – volumes one and two of Mental Instrumentals.
    Just as The Legendary Raw Deal is an outlet for Fenech’s rockabilly side, The Surfin’ Dead allows him to explore the instrumental surf genre.
    The two Surfin’ Dead albums Powertwang (1996) and Dead-A-Rama (2019) have been reissued as a double CD set, with Dead-A-Rama only previously having been available as a vinyl release.
    The albums will appeal to fans of The Meteors as the performances are delivered with the attitude of all of Fenech’s work, but the recordings stay true enough to the traditional surf style to also win the approval of instrumental surf and rock ’n’ fans in general.

  • Various - Great British Twang! (CD)


    The ’Golden Age’ of the twangy UK Beat Instrumental occurred between the late 1950s and the very early 1960s, inspired by The Shadows’ spectacular successes.

    This compilation presents thirty-four tracks from six guitar-led groups, whose sound and style were pretty much a direct homage to The Shads.

    First up, we have The Eagles, from Bristol, who racked up airplay with ’Bristol Express’ and ’Exodus’, followed by The Krew Kats, aka Marty Wilde’s former Wildcats (they also recorded as The Tom Cats), who charted with ’Trambone’.

    The Fentones, who also backed Shane Fenton, charted with ’The Mexican’ and ’The Breeze And I’, while The Hunters weighed in with ’Teen Scene’ and ’The Storm’/’How’s M’Chicks?’ two huge collectors’ items.

    Finally, The Scorpions cut two equally-collectable 45s, ’(Ghost) Riders In The Sky’ and ’Rockin’ At The Phil’, while The Packabeats charted with ’Gypsy Beat’, before famously cutting ’The Traitors’ for Joe Meek.

  • Viscounts - Harlem Nocturne (CD)


    The Viscounts were one of the many rock instrumental groups that sprang up across America as the genre became popular in the late 1950s. Theirs was an original and evocative sound which was more adult sounding than many of their contemporaries.

    This compilation features most of their best recordings especially their biggest hit, a cover of Earl Hagen’s instrumental classic ’Harlem Nocturne’ which was originally performed by Ray Noble orchestra in 1939. Despite being covered more than 500 times it’s the Viscounts version that is by far and away the most famous.

    There is a heavy Film Noir feel about several of the tracks that certainly evoke black & white movies with dark rain swept streets, plus some very rare records which makes this collection a must have for instro fans.

    Fully detailed liner notes.

  • Cole Jerry and his Spacemen - Surf Age (CD)




    ”Could anything be better than surf music played by crazed spacemen? Not likely! And here’s the proof: guitar-wrangler Jerry Cole and His Spacemen’s stupidly rare 1964 LP,Surf Age! While most of Cole’s albums were cranked out at the astounding pace, Surf Age, his second LP for Capitol Records, was by comparison a production of epic proportions For the sessions, Cole and his hand-picked all-star crew of LA studio cats labored to create an album unlike any other, an endlessly inventive amalgam of surf and `60s pop The original liner notes say it most eloquently: One listen to the music of Jerry Cole and His Spacemen will tell you that theirs is the sound of the SURF AGE! Their beat is as dynamic as tomorrow’s crashing waves; their instrumental blend is as fresh and modern as tomorrow night’s surfing dance party; their tunes are definitely for swingin’ moderns.”

  • Various - More Long-Lost Honkers & Twangers (Ltd) (CD)


    The Golden Age of Instrumental Rock lasted for 10 glorious years from modest beginnings in 1956 with just three US Top 100 chart entries, through the peak year of 1961 with 52 hits, onto a still very respectable 27 chart showings in 1965. After the breakthrough of the Beatles in the USA, everything changed, but even then the Ventures kept the instrumental flag flying into the early 70s. For a movement that was originally seen as little more than a passing fad, it has outlasted many other genres and endures into the 21st century, maverick young musicians still strapping on guitars and heading out for a twangy trip on the reverb-ed highway of instrumental rock to play classics such as Walk Don’t Run, Rumble, Miserlou, Apache, Wipe Out or Pipeline.

    Here Ace bring you a second volume of Long-Lost Honkers & Twangers featuring 10 rarities from the genre’s heyday, plus a whopping 14 previously unissued gems by the Ventures, Ramrods, Velvetones, Mus-Twangs and other instrumental bands. Compilation and notes by Ace’s go-to instro experts Dave Burke and Alan Taylor, longstanding co-editors of Pipeline magazine.

  • Wray Link - Link Wray Rocks (CD)


    Paras LINK WRAY kokoelma ikinä!

    with 36-page booklet – 34 tracks. Total playing time: approx. 79 minutes.

    Link Wray – there had to be a release of this great rocker in our highly acclaimed ROCKS! series!
    Recordings officially licensed by various record companies such as Sony Music, his best rock numbers originally released between 1958 and 1966 on Cadence, Cameo, Epic, Mala, Rumble and Swan, among others.
    Such an elaborate Link Wray compilation did not previously exist!
    The CD contains his rare vocal tracks Ain’t That Lovin’ You Baby and Mary Ann.
    As a bonus: songs released under the name of his brother Vernon Wray (aka Ray Vernon) with Link Wray on guitar!
    Detailed liner notes by blues and rock ’n’ roll expert Bill Dahl from Chicago. 

    Anyone interested in rock ’n’ roll or the history of American pop music in general will know Rumble, the signature tune by one of the greatest rockers and guitarists of all time, Link Wray.

    Link Wray (real name: Fred Lincoln Wray Jr) was born on May 2, 1929 in North Carolina and appeared on the stages of the world until his death on November 5, 2005 in Denmark.

    Together with his brothers Doug and Vernon he first played Western Swing in the fifties and became the house band at Milt Grant’s House Party, where they accompanied Ricky Nelson and Fats Domino, and others.

    And then came Rumble, inspired by The Stroll of the Diamonds. Producer Archie Bleyer of Cadence Records signed Link Wray & The Raymen, and Rumble became an unexpectedly huge instrumental success, especially in the USA and Great Britain, making it into the top 20 of the US charts.
    Over the next few years, more successful instrumental numbers followed, consolidating Link Wray’s international reputation as one of the pioneering guitarists of his time. In addition to Neil Young, who would like to travel back in time to a Link Wray & The Raymen concert, Pete Townsend of The Who is one of his admirers: ”He is the King; if it hadn’t been for Link Wray and ’Rumble’, I would never have picked up a guitar”.

    We finally add Link Wray to our successful ROCkS! series! On a total of 34 single tracks from the years 1958 to 1966 we deliver his greatest rockers from his recordings for Cadence, Cameo, Epic, Mala, Rumble and Swan in the best possible quality. Since we were able to license recordings from various record companies for this compilation, ROCKS! differs significantly from the cheap scrap on the market.

    Our CD also includes two rare Link Wray vocal tracks, Ain’t That Lovin’ You Baby and Mary Ann, as well as tracks released under the name of his brother Vernon Wray (alias Ray Vernon) with Link Wray on guitar! 

    The product includes a 36-page booklet with detailed liner notes from one of the most respected experts on American roots music of the day, Bill Dahl.

  • Tiilikainen Pekka & Beatmakers - Salaperäinen (CD)


    Viime vuonna erinomaisen vastaanoton saaneen Used Guitars Etc. levyn julkaissut rautalankabeatin konkariyhtye palaa uudella julkaisullaan suomenkieliseen tulkintaan.  Uudella levyllä on mukana aiempaa enemmän kantrivaikutteita mutta toinen jalka on edelleen tukevasti rautalangan puolella. Rautalangan, Suomi-iskelmän ja rock´n´rollin symbioosi toimii ja vierailevina muusikoina sitä tukevat mm. Olli Haavisto ja australialainen kitaralegenda Martin Cilia.

    Levyn päättävät kaksi live-raitaa osoittavat bändin olevan myös kovassa keikkakunnossa. Samalla ne ovat osoitus suomalaisen rautalankakulttuurin elinvoimaisuudesta. Sen yksi suunnannäyttäjä on Pekka Tiilikainen & Beatmakers. Yli 30 vuotta vuotta kestänyt ura on kuljettanut yhtyettä viime vuosina myös maamme rajojen ulkopuolelle ja yhtye onkin keikkaillut myös Ruotsissa, Englannissa, Hollannissa ja Saksassa.

  • Paterson Joel - Let It Be Guitar! Joel Paterson Plays The Beatles (CD)


    As a follow up to his well-revered holiday album Hi-Fi Christmas Guitar, Joel Paterson will release a collection of vintage instrumental, guitar-centric covers of songs from the Beatles’ catalog, entitled Let It Be Guitar! Joel Paterson Plays The Beatles.

    The album – out on September 20th – features the guitarist’s signature blend of vintage jazz, exotica, blues, rockabilly, western swing and country, and uses classic Beatles songs as a sonic template for the mid-century musical journey

    Let It Be Guitar! Showcases fresh new arrangements of these familiar tunes, employing a wide variety of musical styles and guitar sounds, paying tribute to Paterson’s biggest influences including Les Paul, Chet Atkins, Jorgen Ingmann, James Burton, Buddy Emmons, Ernest Ranglin and many more. Of the inspiration for the album, Paterson says, ”This is the guitar record I’ve always wanted to make. I love the Beatles and their artistry and attention to detail in the recording studio-and I love all-things-guitar. So, I had a great time diving into these amazing songs, coming up with my own arrangements, and at the same time paying tribute to some of my favorite guitarists and vintage recording techniques of yesteryear.”

    The album’s liner notes were written by singer/songwriter and fellow vintage appreciator J.D. McPherson and give further explanation of the project, ”Each of Joel’s interpretations of these songs are concise, genre-bending, stylish tone poems, mixing both Joel’s and the Beatles’ own century-spanning inspirations into one zesty musical stew. Contained within certain tracks, you may even find nods to OTHER instrumentalists who have delved into the Beatles’ body of work… It’s almost the meta-sonic equivalent of a Liverpudlian Rube Goldberg drawing.” Recorded in Chicago at Reliable Recorders and at Paterson’s home studio, Let It Be Guitar! #features Joel on guitar, pedal steel, and lap steel; Beau Sample (Devil in a Woodpile, The Modern Sounds, The Fat Babies) on bass; Alex Hall (The Flat Five, The Western Elstons, The Fat Babies) on drums; and Chris Foreman on Hammond B3 organ. One of the busiest musicians on the roots music scene today, Paterson can be heard playing with The Modern Sounds, The Joel Paterson Organ Trio featuring Chris Foreman, Devil in a Woodpile, The Western Elstons, and many other Chicago-based projects.

  • Various - Cyclone ! – Gallic Guitars A-Go-Go 1962-66 (CD)


    When rock’n’roll music hit the shores of France, it was embraced with a fervour more intense than in other European countries. The first wave of French rock bands set the stage for the later yé-yé scene and led a generation of Gallic teens to follow suit and launch their own groups. Many were inspired to form combos by the Shadows, the reigning kings of instrumental rock throughout Europe in the early 60s. Every country had bands vying to be the top instrumental group but nowhere was the competition more fierce than in Paris and, more specifically, at the Golf Drouot, a mini-golf/tea-room turned nightclub that became a rite of passage for every French band. Known also as “le temple du rock”, the club became central to the fertile music scene in France, forming the connecting thread for all the bands heard on this compilation.

    Many of the featured artists included the standards of the day in their repertoire. Their original efforts, though, are often more interesting, illustrating the great French tendency to digest American music as one giant lump, instead of seeing the genre-divided subsets that dictated the way Americans consumed music. This made for some very interesting and original songwriting completely unlike contemporary American offerings, such as Leo Messir’s Django Reinhardt-infused surf rock number ‘T-Shirt’ or the Leo Petit-penned ‘Galaxie’, which featured a melody more akin to European folk music than anything American rock would produce.

    Among the musicians are the same players who contributed to the sound of much-adored artists such as France Gall, Sylvie Vartan and Johnny Hallyday by supplying their musical accompaniment. Some of the contributors are expats, such as America’s jazz guitar great turned French producer/songwriter Mickey Baker, and others hail from closer, among them the UK’s Krewkats, Tommy Brown and Micky Jones, but they all come together to form this quintessentially French collection for your listening pleasure.
