TASTE THIS!

These five monstrous releases will be available from the 10th of April.
MONSTER MAGNET - SUPERJUDGE (1LP) – MOVLP531
In a musical era dominated by Nirvana and grunge, New Jersey native Dave Wyndorf and his Monster Magnet managed to set the world on fire with an thrilling bash of retro hard rock. A simple rehashing of Led Zeppelin- and Black Sabbath-riffs would never do, and so they set their drug-damaged minds to redefining those riffs to psychedelic effect, creating their own brand of Seventies inspired space-rock.
Released in 1993, 'Superjudge' was their second album. This re-release comes with an insert and the first 1000 copies are numbered and pressed on coloured vinyl.

TASTE - ON THE BOARDS (1LP) – MOVLP230
Before Rory Gallagher became a legendary solo Blues artist, he was starting to earn his chops as the guitarist and singer of the late '60s Blues trio Taste. 'On The Boards' from 1970 is their second and last studio album, and it reflects their prowess as a live Blues band, recording the album as they would play their best pub & club shows.
Out on vinyl for the first time since 1975!

YELLO - FLAG (1LP) – MOVLP535
In the late '80s Yello had their biggest success with the international hit "The Race", which was used in advertisements and (sports) programs all over the world. Combining samples and beats with Meier's deep and distinctive voice, Yello became experts in combining the suave with the eclectic. 1998's 'Flag' contains the hit "The Race" next to a number of experiments with Afro-Cuban rhythms, such as on "Tied Up".
This first vinyl re-release since 1989 comes with an insert.

THE BYRDS - FIFTH DIMENSION (1LP) – MOVLP501
In the previous batch we discussed the debut album of The Byrds, 'Mr. Tambourine Man' (MOVLP199).
Now we think it's time for another Byrds-gem, 'Fifth Dimension'. On their third album from 1966 they started showing a more LSD-tinged side of themselves, with Psychedelic Rock songs such as "Eight Miles High" and "I See You".
One of their most pioneering albums!

THE MOODY BLUES - TO OUR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN'S CHILDREN (1LP) – MOVLP532
Psychedelic Prog-Rock band The Moody Blues were at the height of their career when they released 1969's
'To Our Children's Children's Children'. Its heavy reverb on the vocals, lush orchestration (that includes a mellotron, harp, sitar, and flute next to the more 'traditional' band set-up) and extensive overdubbing made the songs next to impossible to play live, making this the last of their 'big' studio productions.
This Music On Vinyl re-issue's audio is based on the 2008 re-mastering, and it comes in a gatefold sleeve including a lyric sheet.
