What you get are 23 tracks that approximate a head-on collision between hip-hop and the wild and whacky world of Ipecac."

The year is 1968, and the psychedelic revolution is in full swing, introducing the world to mind-bending music that challenges conventional norms. In the midst of this psychedelic whirlwind, The Deviants, fronted by journalist/author/wild child Mick Farren, emerged with their debut album "Ptooff!" This rare British gem is a fascinating and somewhat overlooked piece from the late '60s counterculture movement, embracing chaos, experimentation, and a rejection of societal norms. For fans of psychedelic rock and those curious about the unexplored fringes of the era's music, "Ptooff!" is a record that deserves to be rediscovered and appreciated for its raw energy and daring spirit.

First ever repress! Elaine Brown's "Seize The Time" is a politically charged piece, encapsulating the spirit of activism within the Black Panther Party during the late 1960s civil rights movement during the fight for social change. Originally released in 1969, the album addresses not only the civil rights struggle but also themes of love, unity, and the celebration of African American heritage and culture. It stands as a timeless reminder of the ongoing struggle for equality and the power of music to inspire and unite communities. The recording itself is the result of a collaboration with jazz musician and arranger Horace Tapscott who, as Brown said, “could sit down and orchestrate a song just as you sang it.” This record sees its first ever vinyl reissue, pressed on white marbled colored vinyl.

"We are proud to announce, for the first time ever, the release of the complete soundtrack to ""A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving."" Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the celebrated animated holiday television special, written and created by Charles Schulz, directed by Bill Melendez and Phil Roman and produced by Melendez and Lee Mendelson, this is the complete Vince Guaraldi score along with never-before-heard bonus material. Newly re-discovered in our vaults, the original recording sessions for Vince Guaraldi's beloved soundtrack have been remixed and remastered for audiophiles and Peanuts® fans everywhere. Includes many previously unreleased tracks, several never heard since the Vince Guaraldi Quintet laid them down for the recording session in 1973. All remastered from the original 2"" 16 track source tapes. This soundtrack from the 1973 holiday classic includes Guaraldi hits from the original sources like the funky brass filled ""Linus and Lucy,"" ""Thanksgiving Theme,"" and the soulful ""Little Birdie."" You will hear timbres from instruments that were previously buried in the show mix. Furthermore, there are bonus tracks for ""Thanksgiving Interlude"" demonstrating how Guaraldi crafted his score for the special; an additional keyboard on ""Linus and Lucy;"" and Guaraldi whistling the melody for ""Is It James or Charlie?"" Beyond the composer's piano playing, the quintet is made up of Mike Clark on drums; Seward McCain (longest touring bassist with Guaraldi - holding down the electric bass at Guaraldi's request); Tom Harrell on trumpet to class up the album; and Chuck Bennett on Trombone. This is some of the funkiest Guaraldi you'll hear as his quintet leaned into the East Bay Sound, a type of funk that Mike Clark helped pioneer in the early ’70s. Guaraldi even lends his bluesy voice to introduce Woodstock with ""Little Birdie."" The album was remix engineered by Terry Carleton, restored and mastered by Vinson Hudson, and produced by Sean and Jason Mendelson."

At the time of this recording, Gillespie was close to the halfway point of his career and very much in his musical prime.

Bassist Chris White and drummer Rudy Collins became members in 1962. Recorded at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the group explores some of Gillespie’s finest and most famous originals, including ‘Con Alma’ and ‘A Night in Tunisia’. Those famous trumpet breaks will not disappoint. A true stereo recording, transferred from the original analogue tapes. Pressed on heavyweight virgin vinyl.

Indie Exclusive * John “Illa J” Yancey, younger brother of late, great genius producer James Yancey (aka Jay Dee, J Dilla), is currently completing his debut album for Delicious Vinyl. With the multi-talented Illa J rhyming and singing over a treasure trove of previously untouched Jay Dee gems, the project represents both a full-circle collaboration and a whole new beginning in the story of the musically exceptional Yancey brothers. When Jay Dee passed away from complications relating to lupus in February 2006, he left behind an extraordinary legacy of production work, including hits for Common, Janet Jackson, and Busta Rhymes. One mother lode of previously untouched beats dates from his time working on the Pharcyde’s sophomore album “Labcabincalifornia” (1995). As DV owner and founder Michael Ross explains, “From ‘95 through ‘98 Jay Dee was my go-to guy for hot beats and remixes. He was always making beats, always. So there was a select amount of tracks that he composed for me during that time, tracks as good as anything he’d done, only they never got used. When I finally met Illa J last year, I gave him a CD containing those unreleased beats.” It was a case of pure serendipity, since 21-year-old Illa J had just relocated to Los Angeles and constructed a studio built around Jay Dee’s own recording equipment, dubbing it Yancey Boy Studios in tribute to their fraternal bond. “Dilla was twelve years older than me,” Illa J says. “So back in the day in Detroit I was just a little kid, sitting on the stairs in our house, watching him make those first beats for Slum Village. So I always felt my brother’s tracks and had an instinct for what I wanted to do over them.” When Illa J set to work in early 2008 on recording the album, the project flowed quickly as he entered the proverbial can’t-miss zone. As Illa J says, “One of the things I learned from my brother is that you don’t get that much time, so make the most of it. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate my life to doing what I love: music. To work with Delicious, the label that released those hits my brother made with The Pharcyde (“Runnin’” and “Drop”) is really special.” Michael Ross says, “Illa J can write, sing, play instruments and rap. Not just a little bit of each, he’s really the complete package! And anyone who loves Jay Dee’s music is going to flip out when they hear what Illa J’s been laying down. For over a decade these beats have been waiting in the vault for this moment. It’s like Jay Dee made these tracks with an extrasensory purpose, so that Illa J could make this album. There is no question that this is exactly what they were meant for. These beats belong to Illa J, they’re his birthright, and I really believe Jay Dee would be proud of what his brother is doing.”

Indie Exclusive * 50th Anniversary Edition * When Jodorowsky wanted, in his words, “another kind of music—something that wasn’t entertainment, something that wasn’t a show, something that went to the soul, something profound,” for the soundtrack to The Holy Mountain, jazz legend Don Cherry and crack studio musician (and one-time member of the Archies) Ron Frangipane came forward to share composing and, along with Jodorowsky, conducting duties. The result was a score that is every bit as hallucinatory as the fantastic visual imagery in the film itself. A cornucopia of musical styles that range from deep, primordial chants, to sitar folk melodies, to blaring orchestral riffs and romantic string arrangements provide the perfect aural accompaniment to a film that follows the philosophical and spiritual journey of its protagonist.

Indie Exclusive * Recorded April 20, 2001, in Detroit, MI, Live Volume is the first live album by Corrosion of Conformity and first time back on vinyl since 2016. Although the group began with strong punk leanings, indeed they were one of the first groups to merge punk and metal, the selections on this album eschew the material from that era.

Indie Exclusive * In the Arms of God is the seventh studio album by American heavy metal band Corrosion of Conformity, released on April 5, 2005. Last pressed on vinyl in 2018; To date, it is the only album of the band to not feature drummer Reed Mullin and the last to feature Pepper Keenan on vocals and guitar until 2018's No Cross No Crown. The record was a proper step sideways, one which saw the band embracing old-school fans' demands for thrash, as well as new converts' desires for catchy. It was one of those rare cases where both sides could be satiated.

Chamber Music has a sound inspired by classic soul and kung fu imagery that resembles the signature Wu-Tang Clan sound. RZA “This album has a very live element of today’s musicians playing the vibe of Wu-Tang. The vibe we would normally sample, the vibe of things that we would accumulate through old soul songs, jazz songs, kung fu movies, whatever, now you’ve got musicians that can play this vibe with Wu-Tang MCs rapping over it. The goal of this album is definitely paying homage to our early sound.” "

Indie Exclusive * First repress since the original in 2001. Copies on Discogs sell for well over $100. Weird Revolution is the eighth studio album by the band, released on Surfdog Records and Hollywood Records. It is in large part a rerecorded version of an earlier album, tentatively entitled After the Astronaut, that was abandoned in 1998. The Surfers teeter on the brink of conventional rock values. However, throughout the album, singer Gibby Haynes drives the proverbial truck into the ditch with rambling psychotic speeches.
