Best reissue label for crate-digging

Postby GoogaMooga » 05 Jan 2021, 20:17

So many have sold out, been bought up, or gone under. Rhino used to be one of the coolest. Razor & Tie had Steve Hoffman. As did DCC. These days it's new players:

Real Gone - Complete Singles A's and B's of Mamas and the Papas. In MONO for the first time since the single releases.

Light in the Attic - The Free Design, Lee Hazlewood, etc.

Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Only know Omnivore, I think.

Shadoks: 60's/70's psychedelic rock
Repsychled: 60's/70's South American psychedelic rock
Arf! Arf!: 60's garage and psych and "outsider" music
Prog Temple: prog/psych
Rockadrome: 70's/80's hard rock

I also recommend Sublime Frequencies for World music and Dusty Grooves for a wide range of obscure releases.

Isn't Dusty Grooves a record shop in Chicago?

There's also Bomp! in the U.S. for obscure older releases going from Punk to Psych to Hardrock. Pretty cheap too.

I love the 3CD sets released by Cherry Red or it's sublabels Grapefruit, Esoteric and RPM

I'm sorry but I have to ask: don't reissue labels eliminate the need (in some) for "crate digging?" Isn't that the point?

And how will the post-Brexit prices evolve?

On Jan 29 Cherry Red will release a 6 disc Tommy James & the Shondells box. AmazonDE's pre-order is 46 € while the UK price is £ 27...

I love Bomp! They deserve a mention here just for the Pebbles series.

We'll see. I just received the Pagan Folk set from Amazon.fr for 22 €, along with this for only 13.50 €.

It's quite incredible.
A Danish band that evolved from prog-folk to country-rock (led by a Briton singer-songwriter) and that I'd been totally unaware of. Highly recommended!
