The Beachcomber Trio “Live at Kahiki 1965” limited blue vinyl repress
Previously unreleased until 2010, this long-awaited LP is a live recording of the house band at the legendary Kahiki restaurant. It’s like you are sitting at the bar enjoying a Mai Tai while listening to Marsh Padilla and company play a set of Latin Jazz/Hawaiian/Lounge inspired exotica! First pressing of 500 on black vinyl sold out shortly after release. This is a limited re-pressing of 485 copies on blue vinyl! Purchase here
The Avengers VI “Real Cool Hits” limited white vinyl repress
The Avengers VI were a clean-cut surf band from Anaheim, Calif., whose one and only album, Real Cool Hits, was issued in 1966 as a promo for Good Humor ice cream. The group’s name wasn’t even mentioned on the original cover although it was pictured on the kick drum. The group’s repertoire, which encompassed covers of popular surf instrumentals, mood music, movie themes and some first rate originals, attracted both teens and adults to their appearances in southern California. The long-out of print Bacchus Archives vinyl reissue has itself become collectible, bringing prices of $30 and up, which is why we’ve decided to repress this gem, in an edition of 500 on white vinyl!

The Surf Teens “Surf Mania” limited clear vinyl repress
A reissue of the fantastic, but hopelessly rare 1963 album by Central Californian teens under the guidance of The Revels’ Norman Knowles. Includes five previously unreleased tracks and takes from master tapes and one from a rare 45! The Bacchus Archives LP has been out of print for a number of years. This is a clear vinyl repress in an edition of 500! Purchase here
