(3 CD SET)

International Artists - Never Ever Land

One of the most innovative and influential independent record companies of its time, International Artists has gained cult status over the years, particularly amongst fans of prime American psychedelic and garage rock. Based in Houston, Texas the label thrived under the expert guidance of its driving force, Lelan Rogers, brother of country legend Kenny Rogers.

This 3 CD set collects classic tracks from the label’s flagship acts like The 13th Floor Elevators, The Red Crayola, The Bubble Puppy and Golden Dawn alongside a host of sought-after lesser known gems from the likes of Thursday’s Children, The Chaynes, The Rubayaat, Sterling Damon and The Shayds. Quite a number of these tracks are here making their cd debut, several not having seen the light of day since their first release forty years ago.

Meticulously researched, compiled and sequenced, each of the set’s three discs has been carefully themed:

The accompanying 48 page colour booklet is lavishly illustrated and presents a detailed account of the label’s rise and fall, biographies of the artists with track notes and a full discography. It also includes in full Jon Savage’s fascinating and candid interview with Lelan Rogers.
