Does anyone know if there is a list to view anywhere of UK freakbeat/psych and U.S garage/psych 45 reissues? Also best places to contact who stock and sell them.
I know Ugly Things has the compilation lp's and cd's list but I'm interested to see if I've missed something i shouldn't have. For instance, it was the great RZ that informed me that Legay-No-one had been reissued which I didn't know about.
I don't know if there's a comprehensive list. Below are the ones I have anyway. I paid £6-8.50 each. I have others around, US ones mainly, those below are largely British and all seem to be of the same ilk or manufacturer. All exact repros (or as exact as you're likely to find). I have odd others like The Score's 'Please Please Me' which was being sold separately from the box set Acme reissued it in. Cool to have it but it does alas have the 'Acme' logo on the label.

Yes Paul, there was a great selection of UK reissues that came out a few years back. Others I got in that series were the other Factory,The Game, Australian Playboys, Wimple Winch & Mike Stuart Span 45s.
I'm keen to get others i missed that were reissued at the time in that series and other bits and pieces by Fire, Curiosity Shoppe, Fleur De Lys, Miller, Fairies, Spice, Mark Four, Clique, VIP's, Attack & Purple Barrier.
There's too many U.S. reissues to mention but other Australian & NZ ones worth tracking down are Chants R&B, Masters Apprentices, In-Sect, Tom Thumb & Elois.
I think I originally got mine from Heyday but don't know of any dealers or shops that may still carry them. Do you?
Bought most of mine from Rollin' records on ebay:
of course these are mostly bootlegs rather than repro or reissue !
Anyone know if this shop/label is still going. have tried to contact them but get no reply.
