INTERNATIONAL: This month marks the launch of our new series of high quality 12-inch albums pressed on 180 gram vinyl and packaged in heavy duty sleeves. By popular demand, the series kicks off with "Nippon Girls", a fascinating celebration of the female side of Japan's 1960s pop scene. The LP features a dozen highlights from the CD of the same title issued on our Big Beat International imprint a few years back - one of our best sellers. Compiled and annotated by DJ Sheila Burgel, a former Tokyo resident, the "Nippon Girls" CD raised a few eyebrows here at Ace at the time, but girl pop maven Sheila knew what she was doing. The collection drew rave reviews across the board, becoming something of a left-field hit among the club crowd and young mod hipster types. Highly recommended to girl group fanciers, J Pop groovers and anyone else with a keen ear for eclectic sounds, the LP sports a fresh new cover (+ gatefold sleeve) featuring a bikini-clad Jun Mayuzumi designed by graphic artist Niall McCormack, who also created the 23-inch square poster found tucked inside.

ROCK: Mouse And The Traps, from Texas are principally known for the classic garage and folk-rock of 'A Public Execution', 'Maid Of Sugar' and 'Lie, Beg, Borrow & Steal.' Based in the eastern city of Tyler and evolving from a group of pickers who hung out at Robin Hood Brians' recording studio, Mouse (Ronnie Weiss) and his band ruled the region in the latter half of the 60s. There never was an album, but now Big Beat has decided to condense the contents of their well-received Mouse & The Traps CD anthology The Fraternity Years into one all-killer vinyl edition.

ROCK: The Prisoners are one of the great lost bands of the 1980s. The Rochester four-piece fused garage rock, post punk and classic 60s pop melodies to create a distinctive sound. Lead singer and guitarist Graham Day is a song composer of note. They released four albums over a four-year period, now very hard to find on vinyl, so we intend to issue them on the Ace HIQLP series, starting with their debut "A Taste Of Pink!". Recorded in 1982, it was a favourite of John Peel. Our reissue comes housed in a facsimile of its original cover with in-depth sleeve notes, exclusive pictures, and is pressed in glorious 180 gram pink vinyl.

INTERNATIONAL: "Nippon Rock'n'Roll" documents the rise of Masaaki Hirao. Dubbed "The Japanese Elvis", he was one of the famed Rokabirii Sannin Otoko (Three Rockabillies), alongside singers Mickey Curtis and "Kei-chan", Keijiro Yamashita. In early 1958, the rokabirii buumu (rockabilly boom) was born, the first youth music tribe in the Land Of The Rising Sun. Rokabirii may resemble US rockabilly, but the Nipponese variation is a more diverse dish. Hirao and his band's covers of Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley and Little Richard are not kitsch renditions, but raw, desperate rockers.

ROCK: Big Beat's excavations of Jeep Holland's A-Square imprint continue with the exciting discovery of a true Detroit holy grail - the long-lost session by Stoney & The Jagged Edge, one of the premier attractions at the Grande Ballroom during the halcyon "high energy" days of the late 1960s. Contemporaries of the MC5 and Stooges, the Edge were equally as cutting edge, with a wild stage presence and notorious, enigmatic frontman in Dave "Stoney" Mazar. The quartet burned briefly but fiercely between early 1967 and late 1968. Now that a source has surfaced, the world can hear what it missed - prime 1968 Grande Ballroom psychedelia, with the power and punk edge that only Detroit can provide. Cuts like 'Rainbows', 'Can't Find The Key' and 'Crystal Rain' fully justify the Jagged Edge's legend, and this special vinyl release is cause for vintage psych fans of hues to celebrate. Sleeve comes with a lengthy interview where Stoney spills the beans on this outrageous outfit.

INTERNATIONAL: Few guessed it would become one of our top sellers of recent years, but that's exactly what happened to "Nippon Girls". With that in mind, we've commissioned international girl-pop authority Sheila Burgel to compile a follow-up volume. Former Tokyo resident Sheila also provides the notes, which expertly guide us through our second journey into the wild world of female pop and beat, Japanese style. The collection is available in 12-track 180 gram red vinyl LP formats. The LP's heavy-duty gatefold jacket are sumptuously illustrated with rare items from Sheila's collection.

ROCK: While the all-female 60s garage band is now a fully-populated and celebrated genre, there has yet to come to light a more compelling and visceral example than She. They genuinely played their own instruments, and wrote and sang striking original material and copped one hell of a bad attitude that would put most self-proclaimed rebel boy bands to shame. 180 gram pink vinyl release.

ROCK: With the 50th anniversary of the American band the Charlatans' debut this summer, Big Beat are celebrating with this carefully conceived deluxe vinyl edition of the original line-up's best recordings, "The Limit Of The Marvelous". "The Limit Of The Marvelous" distils the best cuts from Big Beat's essential "Amazing Charlatans" CD to approximate the long-player the group should have issued at their peak in 1966. It juxtaposes idiosyncratic folk-rock 'Codine Blues' and 'Alabama Bound' with dustbowl-dry originals from the pen of guitarist/drummer Dan Hicks, including the first recording of his signature number 'How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away'. Housed in a Globe Propaganda-approved sleeve complete with copious illustrations of this most photogenic of outfits, "The Limit Of The Marvelous" is a fitting reminder in their anniversary year of the continuing magic of the Charlatans.

ROCK: In the swinging 60s, the very small town of Leiston in Suffolk was home to its own beat group: the Wild Oats. In 1963 budding producer David Nicolson put an ad for new bands in the NME and the Oats were the first to reply. The following year they were in R G Jones' studios in Morden, south London, recording five rousing R&B numbers. They were issued on a custom-pressed EP on the Oak label, the catch-all imprint run by the studio. The run was only 100 discs. David went back into the studios, this time with Harry Stoneham added on piano, to cut 'I'm Coming Home' and 'So Long'. The latter song was written by Crispian St Peters, who added harmonies to it.

ROCK: (2-LP set) "Planet Mod" assembles two dozen examples of Shel Talmy's work in the field, all drawn from a fresh excavation of his rarely tapped, thoroughly ear-opening tape vault. Many, such as the Thoughts, Wild Uncertainty and Tribe were recorded for his short-lived Planet label, while the Trackers and Pros & Cons and others were independent productions Talmy farmed out to major labels. The playlist balances black US acts John Lee Hooker, Ray Gates and Screaming Jay Hawkins with the homegrown club R&B of the Soul Brothers, Groundhogs and mod heroes the Untamed. There's rare early compositions from Bowie (Kenny Miller's 'Take My Tip') and Bill Wyman (the Preachers' 'Goodbye Girl'), while the beans are spilled on mysterious outfits the Total and the Corduroys. Complete with copious notes and illustrations drawn from the Talmy files, "Planet Mod" is a fitting tribute to the American who injected some much-needed muscle into British rock in its glory days.

ROCK: Notable as one of the few non-soul acts to be signed to the revered Goldwax imprint, the Yo Yos released just two singles for the label but both are highly collectable for both Goldwax and garage collectors alike. One side of their debut single 'Leanin' On You' is featured here - the other three have never been issued before. Despite being a Memphis label and a Memphis act, the songs feature here all come from a session conducted by Goldwax at Fame studios in Muscle Shoals in October 1966.

ROCK: Big Beat presents a very special vinyl-only Sonics release timed for the Northwest garage band's European dates in late 2012. "The Witch" EP collects four gems from the group's quintessential Etiquette catalogue, and features for the first time on wax, the rare "switchblade" version of 'The Witch', with Larry Parypa scraping metal across his guitar strings to menacing effect. Also making its vinyl debut is the full-length recording of the band's bloodcurdling 'Psycho' direct from the studio master tape, where singer Gerry Roslie turns his throat to hamburger. In recent years the Sonics' pounding take on Richard Berry's 'Have Love Will Travel' has become their biggest box-office item, having appeared upon countless TV commercials and soundtracks around the world. Rounding out this very special "Witch" EP is the original, classic take of the title cut. Housed in a handsome sleeve featuring a rare colour picture from an unused session intended to promote the original Witch single, shot by famed Northwest photographer Jini Dellaccio, The Sonics' "Witch" EP is an essential item for any fan of this unsurpassed rock'n'roll combo.

ROCK: Big Beat kicks off a projected series of 7" vinyl to excite even the most hardened collector of 60s garage rock. We've got a bevy of exciting two-siders in the pipeline all showcasing killers that are either unavailable on vinyl or so rare you need a second mortgage to even think about owning them. All come packaged in brown paper sleeves with individual stickers. For this first salvo, we present three highly desirable artefacts including one that is not only one of the rarest singles of the 1960s, but the ultimate girl-garage nugget: 'Boy, What'll You Do Then' by Denise. Denise Kaufman was a founder member of SF hippie mainstays Ace Of Cups but in this '66 stormer, hell hath no fury as the Berkeley wild-child lets loose on her then beau (reputedly future Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner). The handful of original copies that have turned up, selling for in excess of $8,000, all feature an earlier, weaker take - our reissue utilizes the hyper-rare second mix, which is far more powerful.
