Various - Girls With Guitars Gonna Shake! (CD)€20,00
Ten genuine all-girl bands join forces with similar 60s females of the species on this new volume in our ear-grabbing ”Girls With Guitars” series, providing further confirmation that girls can do what the guys do. The CD kicks off in great style with three of the best tracks to feature in the series so far: the Belles’ ’Melvin’, a great gender-switched version of Van Morrison’s ’Gloria’; a rendering of John Lee Hooker’s ’Dimples’ by the Missfits; and Girls Take Over’s uninhibited proto-punk treatment of Tommy Tucker’s ’Hi Heel Sneakers’. The Missfits, a young five-piece from Blackpool with a taste for R&B, also tackle Bo Diddley’s ’You Can’t Judge A Book By The Cover’ and ’Chuck Berry’s ’I’m Talking About You’; all three of their tracks are previously unreleased. For the record, lest anyone’s keeping tally, the other featured guitar-toting all-girl bands are She, Goldie & the Gingerbreads, the Debutantes, the Liverbirds, the Beat-Chics, the Ace Of Cups and the Mysteries. Elsewhere, Debbie Williams sings lead with the all-male Unwritten Law, ballsy-voiced Joyce Harris is backed by Texas bar band the Daylighters, the teenage Chymes trio are accompanied by the un-billed Turtles and, well, you get the picture. Naturally, those so inclined can learn more about all the artists in the accompanying 24-page booklet containing a picture-packed 4,000-word track commentary by series compiler Mick Patrick.
Principato Tom - It’s Tele Time! A tribute to Roy Buchanan & Danny Gatton (CD)€20,00
I have never thought of myself in the same category as Roy Buchanan and Danny Gatton — these guys were my heroes, and through them I heard the playing of my other heroes like Les Paul, Chet Atkins, Roy Nichols, Charlie Christian and James Burton. And although I have played different models of Fender and Gibson guitars over the years, (Roy and Danny didn’t always play a Telecaster either), I have always thought of myself in my own way, as being part of the ”Washington D.C. Telecaster tradition”. I always brought more than one guitar on a tour or to a concert, and one of them was usually a Telecaster. There would be a part of the show where I would strap on a Telecaster, joke about ”it’s Tele time!” and ”unleashing the chickens”, and for a part of the night everything that I learned or absorbed from Roy and Danny would come pouring out. This is a collection of live recordings showing those influences and my tribute to 2 of the greatest Fender Telecaster guitar players ever. – Tom Principato

Surfin' Dead - Dead-A-Rama + Powertwang 2CD (CD)€15,00
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)€13,00
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)€13,00
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.

Cole Jerry and his Spacemen - Surf Age (CD)€18,00
”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.”
