LP / Cat. No. RFR-010 (180 g vinyl / handmade heavy cardboard sleeve / insert / ltd. edition)

This legendary 1969 LA release of Darius, originally released on Chartmaker Records is one of the all time classics for 60´s collectors - Darius the psychedelic “King” is an extraordinary songwriter, poet and singer with a very remarkable voice. His identity was a secret for over 30 years, the detailed booklet-bio tells his story. On these recordings he was backed by fantastic musicians, Jerry Scheff, Ben Benay and Toxey French well known in the LA studio-scene, they recorded the album "Goldenrod".

The 10 original tunes catch the spirit of psychedelic Rock´n´Roll on Sunset Strip Hollywood by the late 60´s. This was his only album release and includes 3 unreleased bonus tracks and an 8 p. booklet! Truely a must-have...mindblowing psych-blues album!

Album: II(US 1967-71)
CD / Cat. No. WIS-1011
LP / Cat. No. RFR-012 (180 g vinyl / handmade heavy cardboard sleeve / insert / ltd. edition)

Long expected the second unreleased Darius album - it continues the story of the famous Chartmaker record. On the electric tunes Darius is again backed by the legendary “Goldenrod“ guys, and several other interesting LA guest musicians! This album includes Darius´ only 45 rpm (Hello Stranger/ I Don´t Mind) and cuts from acetates to become a 15 track collection of sunny psychedelic Westcoast emotions – ranging from beautiful folk over to 2 min. fuzz Rock´n´Roll tunes, psychedelic jams and perfectly arranged orchestrated stuff.

Truly a 46 minutes joy of passionate and original music with Darius´ unique voice. With a good management this extraordinary singer would have had extreme chart-potential! CD contains 8 p. booklet and liner notes, LP a poster.
