We’ve got two new titles from Machu Picchu / M’Lady’s. Hot on the heels of the ecstatically received reissue of ANONYMOUS’ classic album Inside the Shadow, Machu Picchu Ltd. has just announced the reissue of their elusive and legendary follow-up: No Longer Anonymous. After the 1976 release of Inside the Shadow, the group decided to change their name to JRIDER (after the second cut on the Anonymous LP) and pursued a similar rich vein of impeccable songwriting, this time adding more hard rock to the mix, resulting in a fantastic sounding album that sadly went unreleased at the time. This record is highly recommended for everyone who enjoyed Inside the Shadow, and it also happens to come with an entire unreleased album of songs recorded by the group’s visionary songwriter Ron Matelic!
Next up is THE CONTENTS ARE’s debut album, originally issued in 1967 in an edition of just 100 copies. This record, more rumored than heard, lives at a wild nexus in American culture, simultaneously expansive and reflective, searching for answers in society through music and art. The German label Shadoks first reissued this legendary set almost ten years ago, but Machu Picchu brings you a new deluxe edition of Through You, this time with the very special addition of the band’s two non-album 45s. Let this record turn you on to new horizons.
