Originally released in 1981, What We Do Is Secret is a collection of material recorded by American punk band The Germs between 1977 and 1980.

While most of the tracks come from various studio sessions, several live tracks from the group’s last show at the Starwood nightclub are featured on the record, including a full track of dialogue that gives a listener true insight into attending a Germs show. The tracks were remastered for vinyl and sound better than ever. This limited edition pressing comes on blue color vinyl.

Gloria Ann Taylor

The singles released by Gloria Ann Taylor are well-established rare treasures in the Soul music canon.  Although Taylor was nominated for a Grammy, performed live on bills featuring The Emotions, Johnnie Taylor, B.B. King, and The O’Jays, and had a circle of friends that included Bootsy Collins and James Brown, by the the mid-1970s her career had stalled and she abruptly quit the music business.  Taylor’s records later became highly sought-after by DJs and rare groove collectors, prized for a hauntingly soulful sound that mixed northern soul with exotic percussion and psychedelic guitars.  Gloria Ann Taylor passed away in December 2017 at the ago of 73.  Now, for the first time since 1973, her famed single “Deep Inside You” is back in print on 7” vinyl, courtesy of Nature Sounds.  This limited-edition pressing of the often-sampled Columbia Records release also includes the original b-side “World That’s Not Real”.

Insane Clown Posse

The Amazing Jeckel Brothers was released in 1999, and was the fifth entry in their "Joker's Cards" anthology of albums. Jeckel Brothers set itself apart with its sound, heavily indebted to classic 90s rap, as opposed to the hard-rock influence of earlier records, featuring key contributions from legends of hip-hop like Ol' Dirty Bastard and Snoop Dogg, from
fellow horrorcore icons Twiztid, ska-revival band Gangsta Fun, and even prank call comedians The Jerky Boys. Despite receiving a thrashing from critics, Insane Clown Posse defied the press it received, when The Amazing Jeckel Brothers debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 charts, and ultimately reached platinum status in 2008. In celebration of this landmark album, Insane Clown Posse's own Psychopathic Records now presents this special reissue of The Amazing Jeckel Brothers. Not just on vinyl for the very first time, but pressed on transparent red wax, and housed in two variant covers featuring each of the two iconic Jeckel Brothers from the original artwork.

Blind Lemon Jefferson

Blind Lemon Jefferson, “The Father of Texas Blues,” was the best-selling malevblues artist of the 1920's, recording 92 sides for Paramount Records and one released 78 for Okeh Records: “Black Snake Moan / Matchbox Blues”. Jefferson produced an original, driving, unpredictably advanced guitar style and a distinctive booming high-pitched, two-octave voice that no one could imitate. Legends of his prowess as a bluesman abound among the musicians who heard him, and sightings of Jefferson in different regions of the United States are plentiful. B.B. King stated, “His touch is different from anybody on the guitar—still is. He was majestic and played just a regular little six-string guitar with a little round hole. It was unbelievable to hear him play. And the way he played with his rhythm patterns, he was way before his time, in my opinion. Blind Lemon was my idol.” A special 2018 Black Friday offering of Blind Lemon Jefferson’s 1927 Okeh recording of “Black Snake Moan” / “Matchbox Blues” is reproduced on the original label with an Okeh sleeve as a 10-inch 78 single.

The Lebron Brothers

Recorded and released in 1967 at the height of the Psychedelic movement on the Cotique imprint, The Lebron Brothers deliver an incredible release more than worthy of revisiting. Producer and Cotique label chief George Goldner recalls "All the tricks of way out sounds are put into these numbers. You will hear the weirdest sounds ever cut in Latin dance music. No one has ever dared to produce this sound in Latin Music in the past, but I felt the time had come to do it as all past records had the same sounds. Of course, arrangements had a lot to do with my decision to go on this electronic trip." And that trip is back in effect with Get On Down’s special Black Friday reissue from an oft overlooked portion of the Lebron Brothers’ storied history.

Lone Justice

Musician and producer Marvin Etzioni first saw Maria McKee and Ryan Hedgecock in a club in 1982, playing George Jones and Hank Williams covers. He convinced them they needed original material. After working and writing, the band added Dave Harrington (bass) and Don Willens (drums), the band worked up material with Etzioni and cut 5 of the 6 tracks at the famed Record Plant. An earlier session provides the 6th track. The Western Tapes: 1983 exhibits the genesis of this highly-infl uential band. While the original demo version of “Drugstore Cowboy” has appeared on various compilations, the remainder of the other tracks from the sessions have remained in the can. Two of the tracks appear in their earliest demo form and wound up landing on the classic 1988 Lone Justice debut, “Working Late” and “Don’t Toss Us Away” (written by Maria’s half-brother, Bryan MacLean of the classic band, Love) which would eventually become a top 5 smash for Country superstar Patty Loveless. Released in conjunction with the band, the EP was mastered by Bernie Grundman (who also cut the 45 RPM lacquers). It’s a look into where they started and foretells where they would go.
As Etzioni (who would later join the band) says in his liner notes: “With countless hours together, it was a fun and innocent time. I believed we were creating a 21st century country band.”
They created much, much more. PLAY LOUD AT 45 RPM!
