    Oar

    Sundazed is ecstatic to be able to reissue Spence's cult classic with original track listing, liner notes and photos intact. Spence-a founding member of seminal San Fran skullbenders Moby Grape-cut his only solo work in Nashville immediately after being released from New York's Bellevue Hospital late in 1968. Unavailable on the collector's market these days at any price, Oar vanished without a trace when first released in 1969. Frequently compared to the likes of Syd Barrett and Nick Drake, Spence's visionary work walks the tightrope between reality and delusion and remains a national treasure.

    Oar

    Import

    The Canadian-born Alexander 'Skip' Spence was the co-founder of Moby Grape, and played guitar with them until 1969.
    In the same year he released his only solo album: 'Oar'.


    The album was recorded after Spence had spent six months in a mental institution following a delusion-driven attempt to attack his Moby Grape band mates with a fire axe, after having ingested LSD.

    As the urban myth goes, on the day of his release he drove a motorcycle, dressed in only his pajamas, directly to Nashville to record his only solo album. Fact is that he recorded this album in seven days, playing all the instruments himself and that the end result is now considered to be a classic psychedelic folk album.


    After this album Spence largely withdrew from the music industry.

    Live

    Sundazed Music is proud to present a genuine psychedelic landmark: Live by Moby Grape, the first official collection of concert recordings by the legendary San Francisco band at its blazing late-Sixties peak. At that time, in rock's hippest city, there was no other band like the original Grape: Jerry Miller, Skip Spence, Bob Mosley, Peter Lewis and Don Stevenson. Their Columbia debut LP, Moby Grape, issued in June 1967, is still acclaimed as one of the greatest rock albums evera thrilling union of blues, soul, country, surf twang and day-glo garage rock, packed into original killer-pop songwriting. Even as extreme Columbia hype, devastating business hassles and Spence's tragic mental collapse threatened to blow up the band, the Grape continued to make immortal albums, including 1968's Wow and the magnificent Moby Grape '69.


    But the records told only half of the tale. Moby Grape, in their prime, were also one of the Bay Area'sand America'sbest stage bands, like the Beatles and Rolling Stones in one, with a breathtaking triple-guitar attack and stunning vocal harmonies.


    Live is the long-awaited proof. It features more than an hour of dynamite performances from soundboard and broadcast tapes, including tracks from the Avalon Ballroom in 1967 and the band's complete long-lost set at the Monterey Pop Festival, just a week after Moby Grape came out. There are live versions of the great rare Grape songs Rounder and Looper and five tracks from a famous Dutch radio show featuring the hard-charging '69 lineup of Miller, Mosley, Lewis and Stevenson.


    And Live climaxes with the historic first-ever release of Spence's acid-guitar masterpiece Dark Magicnever recorded in the studio by the original band but presented here in an epic 17-minute performance at the Avalon, on New Year's Eve 1966. Moby Grape were the hottest band in town that night, with the whole rock & roll world ahead of them. And they sound like it. These four-decade-old recordings have been spectacularly mastered, in you-are-there fidelity, and this album comes with sumptuous packaging and rare photos, in true Sundazed style, plus liner notes by Rolling Stone writer and Moby Grape authority David Fricke. Live presents, at last, the untold part of Moby Grape's incredible story. It is San Francisco psychedelia at its zenith and the best historical rock release of the year.

    Takes Off

    Jefferson Airplane Takes Off is the debut album of San Francisco Rock band Jefferson Airplane, released in August 1966. The personnel differs from the later classic lineup and the music is more Folk-Rock than the harder psychedelic sound for which the band later became famous.


    Signe Toly Anderson was the female vocalist and Skip Spence played drums. Both left the group shortly after the album's release and were replaced by Grace Slick and Spencer Dryden, respectively.

    Moby Grape '69

    Moby Grape followed the expansiveness of 1968s Wow with an unadorned, back-to-basics sound on this, their fourth long-player. Bob Mosleys understated vocal makes the ballad Its a Beautiful Day Today one of the great Grape tracks, Peter Lewis stately I Am Not Willing is still a stunner and Trucking Man and Ooh Mama Ooh show that nobody could rock a shuffle like guitarist Jerry Miller and company. Most of 69 was recorded as a quartet, with Skip Spence having just left the band. His parting gift, Seeing, is an alternately tender and tough tab of psychedelia that prefigures his rightly touted solo album, Oar.

    Painted Garden (Discontinued)

    Greg Ashley, mastermind behind The Gris Gris and The Mirrors, is going solo for the first time since his 1993 masterpiece Medicine Fuck Dream. The result, Painted Garden, is Ashley's most ambitious, textured, beautiful and dark record to date. Warmer and more intimate than Gris Gris' 2005 garage-psych stunner For The Season, Painted Garden still reflects the same vision behind that band's greatness.


    Written in the burnt-out ghettos of Oakland and in Ashley's remote East Texas cabin, the album's ten songs drip with the psychedelic flair that turned on cats such as Roky Erikson, Mayo Thompson and Skip Spence (and more recently Vetiver, Six Organs of Admittance, and Devendra Banhart).


    Beautifully orchestrated, sometimes fragile and always fuzzy, the album features great tunes, proof that the young songwriter's star is still on the rise. Written, produced and performed almost entirely by the artist, Painted Garden is a true vision realized, and puts Ashley right up there with the great musical minds of the day.

    The Worst Of Jefferson Airplane

    The '60s were a turbulent time in America as its disenfranchised youth looked to their musical heroes for many of its compelling questions. The Jefferson Airplane with Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Jack Casady, Jorma Kaukonen, Marty Balin, Skip Spence and Spencer Dryden provided their fans the answers with heavy guitars, powerful vocals and time honored classic '60s anthems like Somebody To Love, White Rabbit and Volunteers.


    In 1970 RCA Victor Records honored its acid rockers Jefferson Airplane with their first greatest hits collection, the chart topping The Worst Of The Jefferson Airplane. The 15 song collection represents the finest tracks from their amazing first six albums including tracks and chart hit singles from the likes of Surrealistic Pillow, Crown Of Creation and After Bathing At Baxters.


    Aside from the songs mentioned above, you also get the classic rockers Crown Of Creation, Me & You & Pooneil and We Can Be Together, as well as more introspective classics like Good Shepherd from the Volunteers album and Its No Secret from their very first album Jefferson Airplane Takes Off.


    For the first time ever on 180 Gram Vinyl, Friday Music presents the much anticipated The Worst Of Jefferson Airplane. This 1970 greatest hits limited edition release contains 15 amazing classics, all mastered impeccably from the original RCA Victor tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI/ AcousTech.


    As a special bonus, and for the first time in four decades, Friday is including the original gatefold cover artwork with the stunning Nipper The Dog graphic which wasnt shown in later reissues. The vinyl is also placed in a poly sleeve, and the LP cover is housed in a poly cover to protect your musical investment for years to come.

    Land Of The Sun

    Two of Skip's rare post-Oar studio excursions; All My Life (I Love You), from '72, has the boisterous feel of Spence's best work with The Moby Grape, while Land Of The Sun, recorded in '96 with the X-Files in mind, sounds like nothing else under the sun, and finds Skip sonorously intoning a poem atop a psychedelic bed of sound.
