News: Major Surgery's "The First Cut" has just been reissued on CD!

Here's one that came out of nowhere. Thanks to a note from reader Jon, we learned this morning that Proper Music has reissued the sole album by the UK jazz rock group Major Surgery. I was not familiar with Proper Music prior, but it seems they have quite a few reissues to date, mostly out of the scope of the CDRWL. In fact Major Surgery would seem like an odd choice for a label such as this. Good - better for us!

The label described the album as thus: "A fully remastered re-issue of the 1976 original vinyl release, which includes a previously unreleased track from the original recording session. The sound of the South London Jazz and hipster scene of the early 1970s transcending a time and place which can be found no more and is simultaneously timeless. True and raw music genius fronted by the "Tenor Titan" Don Weller, backed by Bruce Collcutt on bass guitar, Jimmy Roche on guitar and the late Tony Marsh on the drums. The CD release contains an 8 page booklet including liner notes and rare band photographs."

Our blog feature of the album is here. This was an AC discovery from last year.

News: BLIM's two cassettes to be reissued soon!

Thanks to a note from Gnosis Mike, we learned today that the two brilliant UK festival space rock cassettes will be reissued as a 2 CD set. More info about the reissues here.

Our feature of both albums can be found here. This is great news. Perhaps Crow won't be far behind?

News: Rocket Records to reissue Nimbus, TT Oksala, and 3rd Haikara album

Thanks to a tip from our friend Progvarius, we learned this morning that Rocket Records will be reissuing the excellent Nimbus "Obus" album. I've been waiting for this announcement for some time, hoping that Rocket would eventually reissue it. Here's our original entry. Another Priority 2 (borderline 1) reissued! And Rocket always does a first class job.

In addition to the Nimbus album, Rocket will be reissuing T.T. Oksala's "Radio Storm", an album I haven't personally heard but one that Provarius says is quite good. And, finally, look for the reissue of Haikara's 3rd album "Iso Lintu". It's a far cry from their classic first 2 albums "Haikara" and "Geafar", but I'm sure there are many who will be glad to complete the collection. This will be its first ever reissue.
