New releases for February 2017 from Ace Records 

Bob Stanley And Pete Wiggs Present English Weather 
70s Rock 
Various Artists (Saint Etienne) 
CD £11.50 

LP £21.70 

The autumnal sound of Britain at the turn of the 70s, looking out through wet window panes to a new decade with a mixture of melancholy and optimism for what might come next. With the Beatles gone and the pound sinking, a new and distinctive sound emerges, led by flutes and mellotrons. 


The Planet Sessions 
Screamin' Jay Hawkins 
CD £11.50 

At last, the first official reissue of Screamin’ Jay’s rare second album, recorded in the UK in 1965. Stereo mixes and unissued tracks help clarify its status as an overlooked mod-jazz classic. 


Love's Been Good To Me - The Songs Of Rod McKuen 
Various Artists (Songwriter Series) 
CD £12.92 

From folk anthems to movie themes and French chanson ballads, 25 songs from one of the great pop culture icons of his time, including three previously unissued tracks. 


Skunk Juice: Dirty Funk From The Big Apple 
The Pazant Brothers 
LP £12.05 

12 tracks of horn-led funk from one of the great unsung bands of the late 1960s. Includes sought-after singles ‘Skunk Juice’, ‘Juicy Lucy’ and ‘Chicken Scratch’. 


The Seeds 
Psych / Garage 
The Seeds 
LP £29.98 

A 50th Anniversary reissue of The Seeds' first album, with a deluxe tip-on gatefold sleeve, full colour booklet, and a bonus record of alternate takes and unreleased material. 


Manhattan Soul Volume 3 
60s Soul 
Various Artists (Scepter/ Wand) 
CD £11.50 

These New York labels were at the inception of soul music and continued to release excellent tracks until the disco era.
