Gene Clark's classic solo LP from 1974 reissued on 180g vinyl

The epitome of 70s L.A. excess

No Other was a unviversal critical and commercial failure at the time of its release in 1974, but the years have been kind to it. Gene Clark, some 7 years removed from his time with The Byrds, wrote the songs in the quiet seclusion of his Mendocino home but recorded in the cocaine excess of '70s Los Angeles, and the result is the perfect amalgam of those two poles of Clark's personality. Sadly, his return to L.A.'s hedonism resulted in the dissolution of his marriage, but the tragedy sounds so damn good. A California singer-songwriter classic back in print on vinyl with reproductions of the original insert and poster. Click here or on the cover image for more info or to purchase a copy.

Robert Pete Williams' Louisiana Blues reissued on CD and LP

Originally released on John Fahey's Takoma label

Over 50 years since his discovery by ethnomusicologists Dr. Harry Oster and Richard Allen in the prison farm of Angola, Louisiana, what is it that makes the blues as sung and picked by Robert Pete Williams such a singular listening experience, unequaled elsewhere in that musical form? As Peter Guralnick, in his Feel Like Going Home book writes: It's difficult to approve the banalities of most blues singers after listening to Robert Pete Williams. More than anyone else he shatters the conventions of the form and refuses to rely upon any of the cliches, either of music or of lyric, which bluesman after bluesman will invoke. Instead he sings blues which reflect a unique and personal vision; he makes each song unmistakably his own.
