Years (Expanded Edition)

Marc Jonson

In cart Not available Out of stock

The Vanguard Records label is known for some obscure gems, but Marc Jonson's 1972 debut album Years, just might be the rarest—and the fairest—of them all! Not only has it never been reissued on vinyl or CD or even bootlegged, but this lost psych folk/baroque pop masterpiece marked quite a departure for a label known for its traditional folk, blues, and roots music. Comparisons have been made to Tim Buckley's Goodbye & Hello, Phil Ochs' Pleasures of the Harbor, Bill Fay's first album as well as other obscure Popsike legends such as Bobb Trimble, John Pantry, and David Stoughton…throw in a touch of the intimate vibe of Big Star and you’ll have an idea of the coolness that awaits those who discover (or rediscover) this cult classic. As Jonson remarks in the liner notes, "I used left over harpsichords from classical sessions the night before. I hired string players and a string arranger. I even met a street player named Steven Gardner who played the recorder!" Produced for reissue by Pat Thomas, this expanded reissue of Years, and an ace remastering job (from the original tapes) by John Baldwin , and four bonus tracks featuring a non-LP single and several 7 inch single mixes are available here for download now.

Marc Jonson & Compania De Suenos Ilimitada (Single)

Marc Jonson & Compania De Suenos Ilimitada

In cart Not available Out of stock

Recorded in Cantabria, Spain with the backing of a local three-piece band Compañía de Sueños Ilimitada, this single is further proof of Jonson’s gift for writing beautiful pop music. He talks about the new songs:‘My Girlfriend (Doesn’t Like The Ramones)’ and ‘I Don’t Want To Go To School Today’ preserve how I started out loving music with a pure teenage angst and simple melodic sensibility. They don’t stray too far from their inspired essence because music can be whatever it feels best doing. If you’re not feeling good about playing your guitar, getting back to basics usually works for me.Phil Spector, Brian Wilson and Mike Love, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Del Shannon, Dion, Arthur Lee, Van Morrison, Gene Clark, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Bo Diddley – these are my “go to” artists. Sometimes I even run to them and guess what? I’m set back straight again!

The Gay Intruders (Single)

The Gay Intruders

In cart Not available Out of stock

Marc Jonson was 19 years old when he made his extraordinary debut album, “Years”, for Vanguard Records. But his first professional recording session took place several years earlier, in 1966, when he laid down this savage slice of primitive Bo Diddleyfied punk with his teenage garage band, The Gay Intruders.In the United Artists building (NYC) there was a small recording studio, Dick Charles Recording Services, and it was there that the Gay Intruders recorded ‘In the Race’ in August 1966.The tough rocker ‘It’s Not Today’ dates from the same period, 1967. “The basic track was recorded at my house back then,” says Marc Jonson, “and I just recently added more guitars. Vocals were added to the original vocal, but the harmonica was from back then.”
