Jackpot Record Label
1968 Debut album from the king of the psychedelic bayou – the hypnotic, mystical and powerful sound of the swamp coming to life. Upon your first entry to the world of Dr. John's debut album, Gris Gris (1968), prepare to have your expectations shattered and your mind expanded. As he became Dr. John (real name Mac Rebennack), it was his LA session work with musicians like Sonny & Cher, Canned Heat, and Zappa that allowed him to start conjuring up his visions of guitar psych-pop to walk alongside his authentic New Orleans upbringing.
xWhile “Gris Gris” contains moments that make it a type stamped symbol of its era, it might have well been made in outer space. Recorded in its own psychic and stylistic vacuum, the album borrows as heavily from the New Orleans’ musical culture in which he grew up as it does the looming continuous pulse of war, heavy drugs, and the end of the free love/hippie movement. The album was taken under the wing of a small percentage of the "underground" upon its release in 1968 and did not find a true following for years.

Seiche formed in Chicago as a recording project to show off the skills of the musicians and the engineer. The resulting record: Seiche - Demo Press LP was a hard psych prog record released in 1981, that sounded like it came straight out of 1973, but was mostly unavailable, due to it's extremely limited release (50 printed copies). Inspired by Psychedelic Rock and fresh out of high school, Seiche melded the often disparate worlds of histrionic hard rock soloing with some of the more skewed elements of full-blown psychedelia. This Jackpot release pulls out all the stops, sourced from the original masters and loaded with archival and bonus materials. Don't miss out this time around.

Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Long before selling over 40 million records and before he sang a note, Willie Nelson started his career as a songwriter/hitmaker. The... And Then I Wrote LP, originally released in 1962, debuted Willie Nelson's unique vocal stylings to the world. Featuring all original compositions including the legendary hits "Crazy"(made famous by Patsy Cline) "Touch Me" and "Hello Walls" Jackpot Records is honored to release this momentous record on stellar colored vinyl from the master tapes with the original artwork. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed in the late 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana.
Limited colored vinyl LP pressing including bonus track. Released in 1985, Green River's Come On Down was a record existing in it's sonic universe - out of step with it's own time. Was it glam? Was it punk? Was it metal? Was it cool? We now know it was one of the building blocks of what Mark Arm would coin as grunge but in 1985 this record was a silent groundbreaker. It was not only the raw, sludgy, slower guitar sound that makes this band important in it's place in rock history, but the members of Green River would go on to lead some of the biggest names in the genre: Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone, the latter of which also contained the roots of Pearl Jam. The record includes the iconic original cover artwork, is pressed on colored vinyl, has a printed inner sleeve with lyrics and photo of the original master tape box, plus an unreleased rare bonus track!

Limited vinyl LP pressing including printed inner sleeve with rare master reel photos. Digitally remastered from the original 1967 mono mixes. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965, The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band were considered by many to be the West Coast's answer to the Velvet Underground. The group created California psych/rock music that was both fragile and dreamy. Part One was originally released in 1967 on Frank Sinatra's Reprise Records. Though they didn't achieve the fame or notoriety of other bands from the area, they have nonetheless achieved a cult status among collectors and people curious about a rich, albeit short-lived musical genre known as West-Coast Psychedelia.
