      The Feminine Complex "Livin' Love"



      This Nashville band featuring Mindy Dalton, Judi Griffith, Lana Napier, Pame
      Stephens, and Jean Williams has long been an enigma. There was even a rumour
      that they were a fictional band, and the material had been recorded quite
      recently by various American indie luminaries! This despite the original
      1969 Athena Records album undoubtedly existing, and fetching astronomical
      figures....In fact, The Feminine Complex were an all-girl garage band, a
      rarity in Nashville, to be sure....They were even heavily featured on
      various TV shows including the nationally-syndicated "Showcase '68" and the
      local "Nashville Now". The Feminine Complex made one of the few genuine
      girls-in-the-garge albums (all original songs too!) in a time when the 45
      was king (queen?)....and an extraordinary album it is too....as
      extraordinary indeed as the story of the band.... "Livin' Love" has been a
      beloved collectors' item for eons, and has continued to cultivate a loyal
      and steadfast fan base......and here it is.....Intensified, with extras,
      unseen photos and the full story, in true Rev-Ola style.....The definitive
      version, no less!!

      ** First ever European release of the ultra-elusive Athena Records 1969
      release....Includes many bonus tracks not found on the original LP.
      ** An early early example of an all-female rock combo with virtually ALL
      ORIGINAL songs!! Probably the ONLY example of this ilk from Nashville during
      this era.
      ** Mint original copies trade for over three figures.
      **Remastered and lavishly packaged in true Rev-Ola style......
      ** Reissue includes full participation from original band members.
      ** Features TONS of ultra-rare photos and memorabilia.

        David Hemmings Happens!


        David Hemmings....boy opera star...young British character actor....star of
        the iconic 1960's movies "Blow Up" and "Barbarella"....film and TV director
        and producer...and latterly again a character actor and star in such films
        as "Gladiator" "Gangs Of New York" and the elegaic British movie "Last
        Orders".....an impressive resume for any man, one might think....and he made
        a record too?....YES!....but not the usual actor-makes-an-album camp
        artifact....oh no....our David was quite serious about this

        David Hemmings Happens! was produced in Los Angeles by Byrds manager and
        producer Jim Dickson, and features The Byrds as well as a session crew (led
        by legendary bassist James Bond Jnr.) drawn from Dickson's years producing
        folk and jazz for the World Pacific label....the fact that it was done
        somewhat in a rush due to David's film commitments actually worked in it's
        favour.....as the Columbia-rejected and otherwise unheard Gene Clark song
        "Back Street Mirror" opens the album with a full-on gorgeous orchestral Folk
        Rock rush....largely improvised collaborations with The Byrds and Mr. Bond's
        crack crew of jazzers follow....allowing David to express his love of folk
        music against a background of prime Byrds at their Raga Rock peak, and the
        cream of LA's jazz fraternity!....David's friend, Monkees songwriter Bill
        Martin provides a couple of songs, and we are on course for an album of rare
        beauty....an unknown and hidden gem indeed!

        **Original album remastered in the usual painstaking Rev-Ola style!

        **Lavish booklet featuring an interview with Jim Dickson about the making of
        the album! Also features photos of the sessions and the original promo copy
        insert with an illustration by David Hemmings!

        **Features backing The Byrds at their peak and a stellar cast of jazz
        musicians, led by former Chet Baker/Fred Neil bassist James Bond Jnr!
        Produced by the Byrds mentor, manager and producer, Jim Dickson!

        **Also features the unreleaseed Gene Clark masterpiece "Back Street Mirror"
        as sung by David and arranged by Leon Russell....using the original backing
        track, which was meant for Gene's aborted second Columbia album!

          pop/soul diva Evie Sands...anyone who saw these guys on the SMiLE tour

          would guest on their albums in such nonchalant style...because they are
          GENIUS!..a collection of fantastic songs as only The Wondermints can do
          them!ŠI told you I wasn't joking with this Now Sound series, didn't I? How
          good can it get?

            The Drivin¹ Dynamics
            1001 Nights...The Drivin' Dynamics featuring Randy Meisner
            CRREV62

            Before the British Invasion - pre-Beatles, pre-Stones, pre-Yardbirds - the
            American Garage Band was already alive and well! All over the land, kids who
            had been irrevocably damaged by Rock'n'Roll, and had spotted that Buddy and
            The Crickets were not demi-gods like Elvis, but geeky kids just like them,
            formed bands by the truckload. Getting progressively harder and harder in
            sound as the demands of the live circuit pushed their pop repertoire off the
            map in favour of hardcore rock and R'n'B, it was all lost except for the
            memories of local fans... until now!. Nebraska's finest, The Drivin'
            Dynamics, contained not only the cream of the BADDEST R'n'B fans in the
            state, but also young singer Randy Meisner (before The Poor, before Poco,
            before The Stone Canyon Band, before The Eagles), and through the research
            efforts of Rev-Ola, SPM, and the hoarding instincts of The Drivin' Dynamics,
            a lost world rises again! Never before released on CD anywhere, anytime,
            every surviving recording by this seminal combo, the archetypal local band,
            is on this CD... pure genius!

                Perez Prado
                ¡Primal! ­ The Mambo King
                CRREV 68
                The Mambo, a wild and exotic musical form and dance that swept the Latino
                world in the late 1940s, and unbelievably went on to become a huge pop
                phenomenon worldwide! It's originator was Perez Prado, Cuba's gift to the
                world; The Prez! El Bombero! EL ANIMAL!!!

                These are his long lost original Latino hits, far wilder and more ethnic
                than his later pop repertoire. Recorded in Mexico City, centre of the
                record/film business then as now, every one of these absolutely wild and
                uncompromising numbers was a major hit! How could they not be?!

                Never before featured on CD, ³¡Primal!² features 26 of Prado¹s Latino market
                mega-hits between 1949-1953. The combination of soaring Stan Kenton-inspired
                trumpets and saxes with the most backwoods afro-cuban percussion yet heard
                on record lost Prado his jobs at swanky Habana hotels, but ultimately,
                against the odds, made him a star!!

                The insane leaping about and animal exclamations which were his
                in-performance trademarks are all over these wonderful live-in-the-studio
                recordings, proof that the world pre-Rock 'N' Roll did not lack Rock 'N'
                Roll madmen!

                Prado was the daddy of them all! The Mambo King in Zoot Suit and fedora,
                driving them all insane! Featuring the out-there vocals of Cuba's most
                legendary and beloved singer, Beny More we defy you to keep still when this
                hits the deck. And lest you think of Prado as a figure from prehistory,
                how's this as a performer and songwriter: "Guaglione" was a number one hit
                in the UK in 1995 after being featured in a Guinness beer commercial;
                "Patricia" was adopted as the theme for the HBO documentary series Real Sex;
                and "Mambo No. 5", Prado's first hit single, was adapted into the
                unnervingly catchy novelty hit "Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of...)" by Lou
                Bega in 1999... now hear where it all began.

                Sunshine Company
                Sunshine Company
                CRREV 13
                The Sunshine Company... their very name conjures up the spirit of the
                Soft-Pop genre so beloved of collectors, as does the buoyant optimism of
                their sound, with it's complex multi-part harmonies, and full-on L.A.
                radio-friendly studio production, making them almost the very archetype of
                the genre

                Scratch the surface, however, and one finds a rather eccentric strain of
                melancholy (perhaps a product of the gap between their ambition and their
                record label's more traditional expectations) which sets them apart from
                almost every other group in the genre.

                Their story, like their music, is far more complex than it appears, perhaps
                the only Soft Pop group whose brief career links them with the Carpenters,
                Fairport Convention, the Fifth Dimension, Yes, Jackson Browne, Jefferson
                Airplane, Matthews Southern Comfort, Duane and Gregg Allman and Sandy
                Denny.... in a short time they slipped from their position as cherished
                collaborators and influences to indifference as the musical climate of the
                late 1960's made it's incredibly fast quantum leaps.

                Jimmy Campbell, poet laureate of Liverpool, had taken a serious left turn
                from the Psychedelia of the 23rd Turnoff into the working-class-Nick
                Drake-isms of his acoustic solo work... A catharsis of adult themes, and
                rather depressing to listen to, he then he took an even stranger course, one
                which today would be applauded as a masterly ironic yet evocative concept
                yet in the early 1970's was seen as an amazingly perverse course.

                Recruiting lifelong pal and ex-Merseybeat Billy Kinsley, he formed Rockin'
                Horse. The serious adult themes stayed intact, like a Mike Leigh film set to
                music, but the music itself shifted to the sound of live Mersybeat as they
                had played it as kids, the girl group and R&B-isms, and the soaring yet
                cheerfully hit and miss harmonies of a time when anything seemed possible
                for young scousers, intended to project the realities of how it all panned
                out for the city, and many of those youngsters... by God, it worked!

                Depicting the sound of a city full of hope, but singing of a time when the
                hope had become a bit jaded, of course, the critics didn't understand, and
                the utterly hideous and alarming original Hipgnosis sleeve must have put off
                the majority of buyers, making this brave and amazing experiment in serious
                pop one of the rarest UK albums and a cult amongst people in the know. Now
                Rev-Ola re-presents this seminal moment in Liverpool musical history,
                complete with it's attendant singles sides and tracks from long deleted
                samplers. With copious notes, an interview with Billy Kinsley, and scads of
                unpublished pictures, this is the classic that should have been, back now in
                a time when people will get it - Jimmy, you were right all along!

                bands who've noticed The White Stripes have sold a few records (you know who
                you are), we bring you the complete history to date of Scotland's premier
                Garage/Beat group.

                Whilst influencing a whole generation of bands making up today's hit Garage
                sound, they made (and continue to make) a series of remarkable and acclaimed
                records. All collected here for the first time on one great CD are all the
                classics, the driving-collectors-mad rarities, and perhaps their latest and
                perhaps greatest recordings. Anyone with any interest in the driving Garage
                Punk sound that's sweeping the world cannot miss this essential release!

                actor, record breaker, stand-up improv master, and hit songwriter for the
                Chiffons, the Cyrkle, Del Shannon, the Creation, and the Tokens Brute Force
                even released a rare and controversial single, "The King of Fuh," on the
                Beatles' Apple label - the rarest on the label as it happens! Here is a
                slice of full-on Brute, a 1969 performance of improv and songs (sometimes
                both!).... some songs which should have been hits but for that... twist, and
                then both sides of his Apple single "The King Of Fuh/No One Knows What's
                Going On In My Mind But Me" (The latter song was actually a hit for the
                Shirelles, and is today a Northern Soul staple!).

                A must for all fans of the eccentric, bizarre, 1960's classic pop and all
                Beatles completists too! Can't say better than that!

                A splendid fellow whose career includes precious rarities of psych and
                Americana, not to mention mega-multi-platinum success! Featuring guest
                appearances by James Griffin of Bread, Nick St. Nicholas of Steppenwolf,
                Billy Swan, Charlie Rich jnr. and Spencer Davis, as well as a special
                recording of the timeless Eagles classic "Take It Easy", this album
                represents a new collection of songs reaching back for inspiration into his
                love of soul music and stone country! His best recordings for many a year -
                absolutely superb stuff from a master!

                land populated by more sheep than humans, Auckland, New Zealand¹s Gremlins
                are often mistakenly categorized as primeval garage rock stompers but they
                were far more subtle than that as this definitive collection of their
                singles and EP tracks proves.

                They blended beat, pop and folk-rock with tantalizing results. Only The
                Beatles¹ ³Yellow Submarine² could stop the Gremlins¹ version of ³The Coming
                Generation² (the flip side of The Knickerbockers¹ 1965 hit ³Lies²) from
                topping the NZ charts in 1966. The band quickly progressed from covering the
                UK and USA hits of the day to writing and recording their own material which
                recalls the best of The Byrds, The Hollies and The Grass Roots.

                Sadly The Gremlins never managed to record an album but instead left us with
                one classic EP and a string of some of the best Antipodean singles of the
                60¹s. From the rebellious P F Sloan-style folk-rock of ³Understand Our Age²
                to the sci-fi fantasy of ³Blast Off 1970² to the Bee Gees-influenced
                pop-psych of their final single ³Kingsforth Hemmingseen², these recordings
                are essential for fans of 60¹s pop everywhere.

                Collectors have long been paying top dollar for these scarce Gremlins
                singles. The Coming Generation collects all of the band¹s releases on CD for
                the first time and is remastered from bandleader Glyn Tucker¹s original
                two-track master tapes!

                pop/soul diva Evie Sands...anyone who saw these guys on the SMiLE tour
                recently will have no difficulty in guessing why legendary figures like this
                would guest on their albums in such nonchalant style...because they are
                GENIUS!..a collection of fantastic songs as only The Wondermints can do
                them!ŠI told you I wasn't joking with this Now Sound series, didn't I? How

                  beautiful sound picture from Wanda, original singer/guitarist with Brasil
                  '65 (precursor to Brasil '66) marketed as the Brigitte Bardot version of

                  from the unlikely location of Nashville on this fantastic 1969 album, which

                  Blow Up star...featuring McGuinn and Hillman of The Byrds on top Raga Rock
                  form, with David playing a posh Brit version of Tom Waits on top of bizarre
                  raga improvisations, clattering tablas and wailing sax agogo....and with a
                  full-on orchestral folk rock tour de force on an UNRELEASED Gene Clark

                      The Carnival


                      The Carnival was formed in late 1967 by disenchanted ex SERGIO MENDES &
                      BRASIL '66 band members JOSE SUARES and JANIS HANSEN along with ex-MURMAID/
                      Kim Fowley protégé TERRY FISCHER ("Popsicles and Icicles"). Janis was the
                      voice of the Sergio Mendes mega-hit "The Look of Love" (which hit the charts
                      six months after she and Jose left the group!). Janis' sultry performance of
                      this song on the 1967 Academy Awards telecast effectively broke Brasil '66
                      to the mass market! After the Carnival, Janis went on to sing the praises of
                      Ford automobiles in a band called THE GOING THING with JOHN AND TOM BAHLER
                      of the LOVE GENERATION! She also continued her career as an actress (her
                      performance as Felix's surprisingly glamorous wife in "The Odd Couple" is a
                      classic of TV!).

                      The Carnival's amazing and powerful Brasil-'66-meets-The-Fifth-Dimension
                      sound was largely the brainchild of legendary producer and engineer BONES
                      HOWE. At the top of his game, Bones gathered L.A.'s finest "Wrecking Crew"
                      studio musicians (Hal Blaine, Larry Knechtel, etc.) for this, the Carnival's
                      sole eponymous LP. Never before on CD with these exclusive bonus tracks.
                      With the full participation of the master himself, BONES HOWE along with
                      Janis Hansen and Terry Fischer. Rev-Ola is proud to present The Carnival on

                        Sandy Salisbury....King Of Pop.....exaggeration?.....Not at all!....As
                        possibly the most prolific member of the legendary Millennium, it was
                        puzzling that so little of his sublime songwriting was officially
                        released.....all down to record company politics and strategy
                        apparently....Until the recent release of "Falling To Pieces" (CRREV05)
                        exposed the breadth and quality of his unused pop masterpieces....so here we
                        are with a second collection of Sandy's masterful 1960's demos....played by
                        his fellow Millennium members and friends....lost classics of softpop ripe
                        for discovery!


                        **A collection of unreleased masterpieces by member of the Millennium,
                        Sagittarius, and The Ballroom.....

                        A must for all softpop fans, especially the huge cult following of the

                          released the first ever Czech indie records....quickly getting the attention
                          of John Peel, and recording what became a legendary session for his Radio 1
                          show.....released commercially as an EP, it toped the CMJ chart, and got to
                          number 6 in the UK indie charts when this meant something!.....The group
                          quickly moved beyond this essentially shoe-gazing style to explore many

                          Tibi Lubin are a UK group led by singer, guitarist and songwriter Katie
                          Stewart. With a varying cast of collaborators - their aim (if there is one)
                          is to combine the languorous, airy vocal feel of performers like Claudine
                          Longet, Lois, Francoise Hardy, and Margo Guryan, with the oblique intensity
                          of The Shangri Las and the quirky perversity of 1980's punk inspired music
                          as embraced today by the likes of Slumberparty.

                          Produced by Rev-Ola/Creation/Poptones maverick Joe Foster, ³I Don¹t See You
                          As A Dead Girl² represents the first complete Tibi Lubin recording, using to
                          great effect the stark colours of early 1980's indie music before it
                          ossified - a time when anything seemed possible (and probably was) to
                          express a vision in it's purest form. Future recordings will range from
                          acapella to full-on punk to orchestral pop to anything which seems
                          appropriate on the day. This is a music which presents harsh pictures in
                          beautiful soft focus, and vice versa, of course!

                          *before* it became de rigeur for every UK popstar, this is their first
                          never-before UK release

                          Bronco Bullfrog are not on a mission to save the world from the mediocrity
                          of manufactured pop or enjoy vain rock star glory. Andy, Mike and Louis make
                          this music because they have to. It is born and lives within them and has to
                          be heard. The bitterness of being broken down by love, despair at a hostile
                          environment, the monotony of a nine to five existence, memories of a greener
                          past and dreams of a perfect future aren't fiction ­ they are the reality of
                          human existence. And hearing three musical individuals express it so well is
                          a rare thing in any musical climate.

                          CRREV 17

                          OK...Thanksgiving...Halloween...Christmas...it all creeps up doesn't it..and
                          what better way to deal with the various festivities of winter than some
                          seasonal music..... It would seem the days of mysterious lost culty albums
                          are not yet gone.....now...pay attention! Available as a privately made
                          cassette and latterly as a CDR, "Lost Winter's Dream", by the diva of the
                          powerpop set, Lisa Mychols, has been a hot item for a while now among the
                          fan/collector community......:

                          "Lisa Mychols, along with those Wondermints guys, has created a quality
                          Christmas oriented collection that's on par with some of Brian Wilson's and
                          Phil Spector's finest moments. Lisa not only writes the songs but paints
                          Christmas as something almost seductive. Plus, it's one of those rare
                          holiday albums you'll want to pull out anytime of the year simply because
                          the quality of the songwriting transcends the occasion." - Jordan Oakes of
                          Yellow Pills. David Bash's 34th favorite record of all time!!!! (for those
                          who know him that's jaw-dropping!)

                          Produced, arranged and played by the Wondermints team (who have recently
                          been providing the same service for Brian Wilson), "Lost Winter's Dream" is
                          the Christmas/Solstice/whatever album of your dreams!
