Esquivel+Latin-Esque+638621
Cult classic ain’t the word for this little beauty….Esquivel was a Mexican band leader whose largely instrumental music blended elements of jazz, latin and exotica to create something truly unique – what the great man himself dubbed ‘Space Age Pop’ and who are to disagree – More info here
Katch+22+Its+Soft+Rock++All+Sorts+Its+K+638385
Great pop-sike LP from ’68 on Saga, if you like your pop-sike with a side order of baroque (think Harper’s Bizarre, The Association, Left Bank) then you’re going to DIG this..more info here

Original+Cast+Recording+King+Kong+-+All+African+Musica+604191
Now that’s what we call a sleeve! Super cool graphics, expressionist painting with a proto-hip-hop feel N-I-C-E! What about the music? Billed as an ‘All-African jazz Opera’, we are pleased to report it’s a winning combination of tasty hepcat jazz with some wonderful African seasoning too…more info here
Rico+Jama+Rico+-+gold+promo+stamped+586222
Jamaican legend and 2-Tone hero Rico (R.I.P.) goes solo on this 1982 9-track LP released on 2-Tone, produced by Dick Cuthell & Jerry Dammers himself and featuring a who’s who of Jamaican ska, including Tommy McCook, Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith, Sly & Robbie, Ansell Collins…more info here
Nirvana+US+Oh+The+Guilt+-+wallet+-+promo++567348
….never heard of either of these bands (although Nirvana were supposed to be the next big thing at one point no? Arf! Arf!), anyhow this is the US promo CD single, more info here
Radiohead+The+King+Of+Limbs+551698
..Radiohead 2011 UK Ticker Tape 8-track promo CD-R for their eighth studio album, 100% official, more info here
Johns+Children+Orgasm+366633
…ooo-err matron, mostly known as the band that featured a very young Marc Bolan, this LP was actually recorded before he joined the band – but don’t fear as its bizarre mix of dubbed in ‘live’ screams plus proto psych/freakbeat-isms is well worth a spin or two – this is the 1998 Italian reissue btw, more info here
REM+Fall+On+Me+325642
REMember them this way – superb slice of indie pop from back when they were good, very good. This is the white label/promo 7″ single taken from the equally wonderful Life’s Rich Pageant LP, more info here
