Jim Spencer & Angie Jarer

Wrap Myself Up In Your Love

    After years in the SSW mines, the bookish Jim Spencer engaged cowriter Ed Tossing to create a hit, and turned out a song so catchy no less than two aspiring vocalists added it to their repertoire. Years later collectors finally took notice, and the late Spencer’s vision of popular music was finally vindicated. This limited 45 rpm edition of “Wrap Myself Up In Your Love” features Spencer on the A side, and a sexy take by Angie Jarée on the flip. The digital edition adds a slick and soulful rendition by Marshall Titus.

    Louis Wayne Moody High

      Ten incredible albums culled from the deepest, weirdest coop of record enthusiasts ever gathered under one banner. We’ve spared no expense packaging these, pairing the idea of the Art of Compilation with living and breathing art, creating little fortune cookies baked in a factory of forgotten dreams. Video games, pyramids, trading cards, matchbooks, mazes, lottery tickets, film canisters, yearbooks, and various other exercises in design absurdity.

      The lost yearbook from Louis Wayne Moody High’s graduating class of 1967, chronicling the peaks and valleys of teenage angst, lost loves, and life after summer vacation. Fourteen moody melodies of surf kings, guitar Bettys, talent show psychers, and pre-S.D.S. soft- poppers. Walls of jangly guitars, maudlin organs, and melancholy harmonies deliver the bummer to ring in the summer.

      24 Carat Black

      III

        From Shrine to Stax, Isaac Hayes to Gloria Ann Taylor, The Mad Lads to The Staples Singers, Detroit to Atlanta, Kendrick to Pusha-T, Dale Warren’s singular voice is the lone constant. Beneath the ethereal beauty of his productions was a genius crippled by his unbridled id. His everevolving 24-Carat Black project spanned the ’70s, producing a masterpiece and an unfinished follow up. Discovered in a storage space were Warren’s 1980s demos cut with grown n’ sexy divas Princess Hearn, Vicki Gray, and LaRhonda LeGette right before his untimely death at the age of 50. III is an unfinished symphony that peels away the final layer of Dale Warren’s mysterious oeuvre.

        A heady mix of digi killers, digital roots, dub, electro, and unlikely vocoder magic, "Love Lives Forever" is the first ever compilation of Miami reggae-not-reggae diva Dhaima.

        The record gathers a collection of the original Natty Queen’s seminal ’80s and ’90s recordings, including her big 1982 chune “Reggae On Sunset,” the Ninakupenda-issued “Don’t Feel No Way,” the previously unreleased “Loving You Is My Thing,” and “Surrender” - the last song recorded before her untimely death in 2000. Then you make it to the last track for the killer "Sweat Til Your Body's Wet", a dope digi-dub stepper on the theme of "Reggae On Sunset".

        Pressed loud on vinyl in a long-playing format to mash up your home speakerbox.

        Basement Beehive: The Girl Group Underground

          Who do we become when we live our dreams? It’s all here—the high hairdos, the dreams and schemes, the tender camp, the wedding bell fantasias and chaste tragedies. Sister acts, studio receptionists, classmates, angelic voices of the 1960s; some legendary, many hidden in the basement of expired rainbows. Gathered on this deluxe double LP (or CD) are 28 (56 on the compact disc!) foiled escape attempts, now free to soar in girl group heaven.

          Noise Addict

          10,000 Kids With Guitars

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

            Noise Addict: 10,000 Kids With Guitars

            What does teen spirit smell like, anyway? It might smell something like Noise Addict. Like the real life stars of some sort of choose-your-own-adventure book about pursuing rock stardom, few bands ever led a more charmed existence, springing from the Sydney suburb of Bondi into seemingly overnight international fame as friends and collaborators of Sonic Youth, Fugazi, and the Beastie Boys. Through a combination of relentless drive, luck, and an admirable lack of self-doubt, Noise Addict spanned puberty to surpass the haters and join Radio Birdman and Nick Cave as a strange but permanent piece of Australian punk history. Cover art doubles as a working chalk board (chalk not included).

            This title is a Record Store Day Exclusive.

            Blonde Redhead

            Masculin Feminin

              Teeming with the energy and grit of pre-Giuliani Manhattan, Blonde Redhead’s long out-of-print early recordings have finally crawled their way out of the ‘90s basement thanks to Numero Group who will issue the set on Sept. 30. Weighing in at 37 tracks, Masculin Féminin compiles the band’s first two albums for Steve Shelley’s Smells Like Records (self-titled and La Mia Via Violenta), their period singles, extant demos, and radio performances across four LPs or two CDs. Dozens of previously unpublished photographs illustrate two lengthy essays on this essential New York band’s formative years.

              This is the latest installment in Numero Group’s 200 Line series which has also included releases from Unwound, Bedhead, Codeine, White Zombie and The Scientists. “These songs combine a raw need, a ready access to neediness, with seemingly incongruous cinematic changes reminiscent of ‘60s Italian pop music and movie scores. They switch between emotional grandeur and eye scratching immediacy.”-Arto Lindsay

              Buttons: Starter Kit

                This entry level compilation features 20 songs from our original 004 cd, plus two bonus cuts, new liners, tons of sleeve scans, photos, and ephemera, all housed in a spot varnished, brick-thick gatefold sleeve. Artists include New Jersey's Toms, Kennet, MO's Trend, NYC's Colors, Treble Boys, and Sponsors, Hollywood's Randy Winburn and Tommy Rock, Des Moines, IA's Luxury, San Antonio's Kids, Connecticut's Bats (featuring a young Jon Brion), and Boston's Tweeds. Attention: In celebration of our Buttons series, you can buy both NUM004 and NUM044 together with our limited edition Power Pop Buttons Pack. This pack includes 32 high quality buttons of varying sizes that feature artists from both Buttons compilations. Act fast because this set is limited to 100 and will never be made again.

                The second in Numero's series of exploration into the pan-American funk experience, "Cult Cargo - Grand Bahama Goombay" is a deep overview of Funky Nassau's red-headed sister city, Freeport, GBI. From 1969-1976 Frank Penn's GBI studio and label cranked out a dozen LPs and twice as many singles infected with the Miami sounds drifting in over the 100 mile strait. The catalog is a fruity blend of rake and scrape, bush, junkanoo, calypso, reggae, and of course, goombay, with a twist of American soul.

                FORMAT INFORMATION

                CD Info: CD comes with 16 page full colour booklet featuring full musical history of the island.

                The first ever compact disc issue of Catherine Howe's brilliant debut album. Produced by legendary jazz pianist Bobby Scott, the album is a pastoral blend of English countryside folk and London orchestral pop, not unlike "Bryter Layter" or "North Star Grassman And The Ravens". Originally released on Reflection Records in 1971, the much sought after album disappeared before ever hitting the racks. Booklet includes half a dozen unpublished photos and an annotated history of the LP's brief existence. This fully remastered album includes an unearthed bonus track originally intended to be included on the album.
