Seeds and Sky Sunlight Saxon discography

Jump to: For sale | Comments (0)

This is a list of albums, singles, EPs, box sets and more from The Seeds and from Sky Sunlight Saxon's various solo and band projects.

Pre-Seeds era (1960-1964)

Sky's first known extant songs were released in 1960 on a 7-inch single as Dick Marsh; through 1964 he would release six total such singles, on six different labels and with six different artist credits. These were "teen idol" type songs — corny from today's perspective (and, arguably, then too), but Sky's nasal whine and confidence was obvious even on these.

The Seeds (1965-1972)

From 1965, Sky had a new band, The Seeds, who had a Top 40 hit with "Pushin' Too Hard". The Seeds were on the GNP Crescendo label, releasing five albums and several singles through 1969. The Seeds released two singles for MGM in 1970, then a self-released single in 1972. Compilations would follow, from Crescendo and others, and the name "Seeds" would be applied in various forms to later Sky Saxon projects.

1970s

Sky hung out with Jim Baker (a.k.a. Father Yod) the Source Family, a sort of new-age hippie group-cum-cult, in California and Hawaii in the early and mid-1970s, but didn't appear on the several LPs self-released by Ya Ho Wha 13, the group's internal music project. He released some new garage-rock on singles and EPs in the mid 1970s, as well as three LPs of very strange psychedelic meditation music, two with Source Family friends. After 1977, Sky guested on one of his own songs on an album by Allright Family Band in 1980, but otherwise was silent until 1984.

1980s

In the 1980s, Sky had two main projects that saw him enjoying renewed popularity during a psychedelic 1960s revival. Fire Wall and Dragonslayers both released two albums of new garage rock music, and Sky hung out and played live in California, enjoying the drugs and girls then on the scene.

1990s

After the second Dragonslayers album, and an unusual synth-pop excursion called Sky Saxon's U.S.A. in 1991, Sky was quiet for a couple years. Eventually he formed a new band called Fast Planet that released a CD in 1994 and a live cassette in 1995. He then was silent for several years, during which he worked with Captain Trip, a Japanese company, to release a 13-CD box set of Ya Ho Wha recordings (the 1970s albums he by and large wasn't on). He is on three of the set's CDs, which comprise some late-1970s songs both released and unreleased.

2000s

Beginning in 2004, Sky returned and began releasing albums with an unprecedented frequency, with different bands and a variety of names, that saw him singing classic Sky Saxon garage rock as well as softer, longer meditative pieces with friends old and new. Vinyl was a big part of this era for Sky; several vinyl-only singles were made available on various labels, while other albums were released on limited-edition vinyl as well as CD and/or download versions.

Sky Saxon died on June 25, 2009.

Post-death era

In 2012, Big Beat released an expanded CD version of The Seeds' debut album, full of bonus tracks and well-researched liner notes. It was the first in a series of Seeds reissues which explore the unreleased archives properly for the first time. These CDs are a godsend for Seeds fans and for Sky Saxon chroniclers.

Global Recording Artists (GRA Group) has been leading the online Sky reissues in the 2010s, and continues to release out-of-print (or never-released) post-Seeds Sky Saxon music from different eras, often in download form.

The twists and turns of Sky Saxon's discography

Compiling Sky Saxon's complete discography is a monumental task: he used a huge variety of names for himself and his projects, and much of his output, especially from the 1970s and 1980s, has a mysterious history. Dates, personnel, and other details can be hard to pin down; many releases contain scant liner notes. Furthermore, the internet is full of misinformation about Sky and his releases, and inaccuracies are often handed down from website to website. Time lends a credence to even wildly dubious "facts" that can make untangling the truth challenging.

So this is my attempt at an accurate reflection of Sky Sunlight Saxon's various releases in a variety of formats — vinyl, CDs, 8-track tapes, MP3 downloads, et cetera. Information is comprised of liner notes, believable websites, interviews, and other hopefully reliable sources.

Buying LPs, CDs, tapes, etc.

Actually finding physical copies of all Sky's items can be a lifetime pursuit in and of itself; although much of it is available readily in some form, some of it isn't, or is very rarely seen. For anyone who loves to own the original articles that gave the world this music, the hunt can be fun, rewarding, and demanding of ones patience and diligence.

Have a correction or addition? Let us know.

Note: This list does not include multiple-artist compilations with Sky Saxon or Seeds music (such as Nuggets). There are just too many of them.
