DELTA BLUES BAND - Same, Denmark 1969 (SHADOKS 168)
LP 500 numbered / heavy sleeve / 180 gram pressing / 2 page insert
Delta Blues Band was originally formed in 1968 in Copenhagen. In the spring 1969 they got the chance to record an album for the big record-company E.M.I. and their album was one of the first rock-albums using multitrack technique in Denmark. Just after the release of their debut album the brothers Thomas and Michael left the group to form the successful group PAN.

By 1968 the main rhythm and blues group in Denmark was Beefeaters. However, Delta Blues Band was distinct from both Beefeaters and the many other groups playing a British inspired rhythm and blues in Denmark. Delta Blues Band was rather American blues inspired with a massive psychedelic touch (and light show).
On concerts Delta Blues Band opened for Chicken Shack, Taste, Fleetwood Mac and John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers (featuring Mick Taylor). This only album by Delta Blues Band is very rare and it is fetching very high prices among collectors. The underground blues sounds a tight and the album has a solid status among those early underground blues albums we like so much such as Keef Hartley Band, Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac and Savoy Brown. A jewel from beginning to end. The underground music I grow up with and love so much ever since.

HAMLET - Linnanherra, Finland 1977 (SHADOKS 169)
LP 500 numbered / heavy gatefold sleeve / 180 gram pressing /2 page insert
Hamlet formed as SURVIVAL in 1973 and played many concerts in Finland. The highlight for the band was during 1976-1977 when the small town country boys got to make their first album, Linnanherra. They were booked at the best studio in Finland, Finnvox in Helsinki, together with the British sound technician Ian Churches. But the producer wanted them to change their names to HAMLET for a better sale point (in a new outfit on the cover). The band never agreed but the Discovox label released the album under the new name with a new medieval outfit on the cover. This extremely rare Finnish prog album from 1977 was later withdrawn by the label. The album Linnanherra was the only album the band recorded. The music might go in a similar direction that Finnish Session, heavy psych progressive rock, heavy lead guitars all over, great songs and very well produced. Jouko Nykter - vocals / Hannu Nykter - guitar, vocals / Jouni Limingoja - bass, vocals / Harri Kannel - guitar / Kalle Kähkönen - drums. This album is rare as gold dust and pretty much unknown even to Finnish collectors. We like it a lot, a really cool heavy album!

You see on the photo (right) what the band really looked like....

LP

MAZHAR ve FUAT - Türküz Türkü Cagırız!, Turkey 1973 (SHADOKS 170)
LP 500 numbered / heavy sleeve / 180 gram pressing / 2 page insert
WOW, here is the album we where trying to put our hands on for nearly 10 years. So finally we have made the deal, so here is the first ever official reissue of this beautiful album from Turkey, incredible rare as an original LP and as good as the best Koray / Manco tunes.

The roots of the group begin with the meeting of two teenage boys, Aziz Fuat Güner and Mazhar Alanson and their common interest with the same album, The Beatles LP Rubber Soul in 1966.
In the end of 1967 they began to work with Barıs Manço and they recorded many of the Manço’s psychedelic period singles.
In 1969 they recorded their first own single. In the autumn of 1973 their only LP was released by Yonca Records.
In the beginning of the 1980's another member joined and ever since they where "Mazhar Fuat Özkan (MFÖ)".
The album Türküz Türkü Cagırız! has a strong electric touch with powerful guitar effects, great vocals, some troubadour ballads and mystical folk rock songs with a psychedelic touch.

CD
CULPEPER'S ORCHARD - Same, Denmark 1971 (SHADOKS 166)
CD: in jewelcase - 16 page booklet
Here we have possibly the best Danish underground album from Denmark recorded in 1971. We just love every second of this album and we are happy to re-release it for the first time legit on LP. The LP version includes a rare poster, unseen photos by Jørgen Angel and extensive liner notes written by our friend Claus Rasmussen based on interviews with Cy Nicklin (lead vocals & guitars), Michael Friis (bass, organ, piano, flute) and others. The band was inspired by Westcoast bands such as The Byrds, and Crosby, Sills Nash & Young. The powerful music might be compared to Jethro Tull, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. A superb combination of heavy progressive and folk stylings, the album also has its very own identity and haunting songs.. They have played many great concerts and festivals and became one of the most Danish popular bands.
Julian Cope wrote: Replete with extremely catchy songs, fiery Dervish-like guitar solos, confidently self-referential lyrics from a Wino Weinrichian poet/guitarist, all the while the entire ensemble spewing euphoric vocal harmonies over intricate and furiously hard-edged arrangements, this Album of the Month owes its artistic success not to any great dream of originality, but to the wild spirits of each of its performers and especially that of its primary writer – one Cy Nicklin – and his clear desire to contribute highly accessible Hippie Dream music that sat well alongside such million-selling contemporary heroes as The Moody Blues, Crosby, Tween, Nash & Young, Led Zeppelin, Traffic and The Who.


CD
YURY MOROZOV - Cherry Garden Of Jimi Hendrix, Russia 1973 (SHADOKS 167)
CD: in jewelcase - 12 page booklet
This time we are really proud to release an album from Russia 1973. It might be the first time ever that a western label is releasing an underground album from former USSR. Yury Morozov sadly passed away a few years ago but with the help of good friends we could work out a release with his widow Nina for this amazing album from 1973 called the "cherry garden of Jimi Hendrix". When Yury was asked in an interview of how many albums he did record, the answer was 14,7 kilo (tapes)! There are 45 albums by Yury and hopefully they will come out in Russia as a CD Box and we could release more. Cherry Garden is an amazing album full of effects, great songs, tons of fuzz guitar, sometimes dark and heavy, sometimes light an funny with the atmosphere of a Tarkowski movie such as "Stalker" and "Solaris". Yury plays most instruments, his gear and effects where built by himself. Later on Yury recorded in London at Abbey Road studios and became friend with many famous British musicians. Yury Morozov is an enigma of Soviet underground music. In 1973 his music was only available as tapes exchanging hands among fans since he did not match the political and musical Soviet guidelines. Cherry Garden is a surreal underground rock album which stands out for International psych standards.
