David Morales’ Picks for Record Store Day 2013

David Morales, the man behind Out There with Morales, the ongoing series on this blog, rounds up his picks for Record Store Day 2013.

Dust
Dust – S/T and Hard Attack
Absolutely devastating hard rock from this Brooklyn group, featuring Richie Wise on guitar/vocals, Kenny Aaronson on bass and Mark Bell on drums. The band released two albums on the Kama Sutra lable in 1971 and 1972, both of which are packaged together in this special set. Wise went on to produce the first two Kiss albums; Aaronson played bass for many other groups and Bob Dylan; and Mark Bell drummed for another killer hard rock band called Estus, then moving on to Richard Hell and the Ramones. If you even remotely consider yourself a fan of rock, you have to buy this!

Roky Erickson – Mine, Mine, Mind/Bloody Hammer (Light in the Attic)
The first release in the Roky Erickson catalogue from Light In The Attic. If you are not familiar with Roky’s solo work, this is the best place to start. Two killer sides of demented rock n roll from the man who actually lived it.

Van Dyke Parks – Song Cycle (Rhino)
After being kicked out of the Beach Boys’ Smile Sessions, Parks began work on his debut solo album in 1968. A nice mix of classical, pop and Americana. Rhino reissues this album for the first time in mono in an old style tip on sleeve.

The Zombies – S/T (Varese Sarabande)
American version of their fine 1965 debut album that includes two of their biggest hits, but it does not end there. This is pop at its most cleverly crafted, although it was never quite successful as those other four. Who knows why.

.

Small Faces
A group that will forever remain in my heart. Kenny Jones’s thick and wild but on point drums, Ian McLagan’s expressive keyboard play, Ronnie Lane’s funky heavy bass lines and joyously playful vocals, and Steve Marriot’s heavy blues guitar and soulful wailing vocals. Arguably the greatest British rock vocalist. They did not record a bad song In their short career. Everything this band touched turned to gold.

There Are But Four Small Faces (Varese Sarabande)
American compilation of sorts pulling songs from their 1967 Immediate Records self-titled album and recent singles around the time of the release.

Here Come The Nice / Talk To You (Charly)

Rolling Stones – Five by Five (ABKCO)
Second EP released in 1964, recorded at Chess Studios in Chicago while on their first American tour. They were practically ignored as they didn’t yet have their first big hit. A few months later their manager would release a throw away track, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.
