Ian Dury & The Blockheads

Greatest Hits

    Ian Dury, like Ray Davies and Paul Weller was a very English talent. The colourful, metropolis inhabiting characters like Billericay Dickie or Plaistow Patricia he sung about and the ever so cockney music hall accent he chose to sing in were a big part of that.

    But most of all it was the detailed, poetic way he catalogued English life and the melting pot of musical styles used to do so, from punk to funk to jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, which left the listener in no doubt that Dury’s work could only come from one place: The very heart of England

    The Creation

    Creation Theory

      Alan McGee was such a big fan of The Creation that he named his record label after the band, and named his own band after one of their songs – Biff Bang Pow. The Creation was formed in 1966 from beat combo The Mark Four, and was quickly signed to a production deal with Shel Talmy, The Who’s producer. The first release was the urgent “Making Time”, which featured guitarist Eddie Phillips playing his guitar with a violin bow, two years before Jimmy Page started doing so. Whilst very popular in Germany, UK success largely eluded the band, and after a number of noncharting singles and line-up changes (including Ron Wood), the band broke up in 1968 without ever having released an album in the UK. Bizarrely, Boney M had a huge hit in 1979 with the band’s composition “Painter Man”.

      Phillips and lead vocalist Kenny Pickett recorded an album in 1987 that remained unreleased until 2004, and in 1995, following reunion concerts at Harlesden’s Mean Fiddler, Alan McGee and Joe Foster managed to persuade the original line-up to record a new album, for release on Creation Records.

      This 4 LP box set has been designed by Phil Smee and the album sleeves feature photos from his collection. The four LPs include all of The Creation’s legendary recordings for Shel Talmy (the 2016 stereo mixes appear on LP for the first time), “We Are Paintermen” replicating the 1966 German LP, the only Creation album released anywhere in the 60s. “How Does It Feel To Feel “rounds up the remainder of the 60s recordings, and the 1987 album “Psychedelic Rose” and the 1996 Creation Records album “Power Surge” complete the set.

              Rich Kid Blues

                THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2017 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

                Issued on vinyl for the first time since 1985, this Record Store Day 2017 edition is pressed on silver coloured vinyl.

                Produced by Mike Leander, who had produced and arranged much of Faithfull's Decca material, "Rich Kid Blues" is an intriguing album of spare, largely acoustic readings of folk / rock songs, including several Bob Dylan covers, as well as songs by Phil Ochs, George Harrison, Cat Stevens, Tim Hardin, James Taylor and Sandy Denny.

                "...Yeah yeah, another Northern Soul compilation, whatever..."
                Well, that's where you're wrong my audio philistine. There may be a plethora of Northern Soul collections out there, but how many of them include such gems as The MVP's "Turnin' My Heartbeat Up", Dobie Grey "Our On The Floor", Tobi Legend "Time Will Pass You By". And if you don't already own either Al Wilson's "The Snake" or Freda Payne's "Band Of Gold" then it's worth bagging this for those two tracks alone. And on top of all that, it's presented in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with original artwork and 2 x 180g heavyweight vinyl. Keep the faith as they say...

                  The ten specially selected double AA side 7" singles in this box present twenty of the most varied and exciting tracks spanning those crucial few years. It's nearly forty years since many of these tracks appeared on vinyl so it is inevitably very difficult to find mint copies.

                  MOD Classic 45s

                    THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2016 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

                    The ten specially selected double AA side 7" singles in this box pull together twenty of the most diverse and exciting tracks of the golden era of Mod. Nearly fifty years later it is inevitably impossible to find mint copies of these great songs on vinyl. Includes The Small Faces, Yardbirds, the Spencer Davis Group, PP Arnold and the best of the era housed in a hard slipcase, the ten 7" singles are 'dinked' as juke-box singles and the box includes a 'spider' centre for play.

                    Mod youth culture - music and fashion - exploded in the UK in the early 1960s and spread through the decade to include the USA. The term 'Mod' came from the fashion side and the clothes worn by beatnik fans of modern jazz, but the music of the movement was rooted in soul and R'n'B, embracing ska and beat-pop.

                            Demon Records are proud to present the 2016 Vinyl Reissue of Doctor Who: Genesis Of The Daleks on 180g heavy weight 70s Tardis Blue coloured vinyl.

                            Everything But The Girl

                            Eden - Transparent Vinyl Edition

                            Cut to 180 gram heavyweight transparent vinyl. This is an individually numbered in the exclusive run with gatefold artwork featuring rare images and reconstructions. The inner bag features printed lyrics, sheet music and photograph.

                            After Tracey Thorn's Marine Girls offerings and solo album "A Distant Shore", and Ben Watt's "North Marine Drive", the pair came together to form Everything But The Girl, "Eden" being their superb debut album from 1984. This collection of tracks hallmarked the duo's understated but beautific composition skills, displaying a great leap forward from the comparative naivete of their previous offerings. Mixing up gentle bossa-nova and jazz-flavoured tunes with guitar-strummed indie-pop and nu-country acoustica, the duo straddled the gap between Sade and The Style Council on one side and The Smiths on the other, creating a lyrically astute perfect pop album.
