NORTON'S EL PASO ROCK SERIES ROLLS ON

El Paso may be in Texas, but it borders New Mexico, home state of our hallowed Yucca Records, a star in Norton's ever growing constellation of able labels. Yucca’s output in the 1950’s and 1960’s is equaled by the number of world class recordings that sat in the can for fifty years. Available now for the first time ever comes the absolute motherlode, selectively scattered throughout the ever-growing Norton Southwest series called EL PASO ROCK. Norton’s EL PASO ROCK series is available on LP and CD, with some 45's to thrill the seven inch set. Collect them all!

NEW FROM KICKS BOOKS - ROYSTON ELLIS!

GONE MAN SQUARED by Royston Ellis KB7 First appearance of the British beat king's early works in over 50 years! Royston, who vanished from Britain in 1963, was THE Paperback Writer- as referenced by those Beatles guys. In fact, the Silver Beetles (with Stu Sutcliffe) backed Ellis and his "rocketry" in Liverpool, as did Jimmy Page, who wrote the foreword. These writings 1958-1962 fill in an unwritten chapter in British beat history. Dig it now- watch for Kicks Books news with a full-on update on our hip pocket paperbacks!
