Mark your calendars for Sunday September 16th and head over to The Regent Theatre to grab a ticket for a super hot lineup – catch Love and The Seeds live and a screening of the documentary. Director Neil Norman will be in attendance, and producer Alec Palao has been holding down the bass slot for the band so check him out, too.
Delivery of our LPs is expected this week and we will be shipping starting next week. Get to the front of the line by pre-ordering now.
It’s finished and getting packed onto pallets and will soon be winging its way to us. As soon as we have a firm ETA we’ll let you know when it’ll be available to ship.
The next instalment in our refurbished Seeds vinyl catalog is A Web Of Sound, originally released in October 1966 just as their classic ‘Pushin’ Too Hard’ began to ascend the US hit parade.
The record retained the crazed energy of the Seeds’ eponymous debut, but dosed it with a growing maturity and a willingness to experiment. It was written and recorded during the bands legendary residencies at Hollywood’s underground haven Bido Litos, alongside Love and the embryonic Doors. Notorious at the time for the 14-minute showstopper ‘Up In Her Room,’ A Web Of Sound also features some of the Seeds’ signature works including ‘Mr Farmer’, ‘Tripmaker’ and ‘A Faded Picture.’
This definitive 2 LP edition features the original stereo mix of A Web Of Sound, unavailable on vinyl since the 1960s. The accompanying bonus album of rarities includes mono mixes and outtakes, such as the cryptic early demo of ‘The Wind Blows Your Hair,’ with its mildly controversial original lyric. Most are new to vinyl, and one cut, an alternate take of ‘Rollin’ Machine,’ is completely unreleased.
As before, the deluxe A Web Of Sound comes in a handsome tip-on style gatefold sleeve, faithfully reproducing the records iconic original artwork. The extensively illustrated eight-page insert features detailed liner notes from compiler Alec Palao on the making of this psych-garage classic.
Who was the best Bond?
Are you a Connery purist or did you have a soft spot for Dalton? If you came of age in the 90s you probably had a Brosnan standee in your dorm room. Just me? Ahem.
What doesn’t divide us is the music. There have been innumerable versions of the iconic theme. Check out Neil’s homage to Monty Norman’s James Bond Theme:
