The gentlemen of The Fugs at "full orchestral strength" – brilliantly doing their thing at New York's Filmore East in 1968! Bawdy, comical poetry from one of the most influential groups – working here a larger scale, semi-unhinged rock and roll setting as opposed to the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Some of the most tuneful work we've ever heard from The Fugs – tracks that almost border on pop-psyche at times, but still get nicely tripped out at other moments! Side one has the trio almost touching territory of other Reprise rock from the times – slightly psyche, slightly country, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a partially unglued top seam, and a bit of sticker residue inside the gatefold.)
Freewheeling, tripped out Catalonian rock from Fusioon! The album groove has bits of spacey rock, prog and freaked out bits of funk – you can pick it apart for trace influences, but ultimately, the vibe is all their own – Absolute Fusioon, indeed! Cosmic keyboards, dexterous drum work ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has light wear, with a small split on the bottom seam.)
Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream ... read moreCD
What can we say about this album that the rock literati hasn't already expounded on? Probably very little, but we can chime in with our agreement that this is without doubt one of best post-punk albums ever recorded! Spring-tight guitars, call-and-response vocals, and of course those terse, ... read moreCD
Attention Stereo Buffs! Or so says the label on this one, a groovy bit of "symphonopop" arranged and performed by Jonna Gault. The liner notes ask the question "was stereo created for Jonna Gault and her symphonopop scene or vice versa?". Check out her versions of "Good ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Moody ambient synth explorations from M Geddes Gengras! Mood-wise, Ishi is a bit reminiscent of the benchmark electronic ambient experimental albums of the 70s, like Tangerine Dream, with 3 long pieces that start fairly calm and pastoral, with slow-building, thickening atmosphere, before easing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes code for digital download, which also includes the additional 40-minute piece"Vigil".)

Just Sold Out!
Beautifully melodic work from Gentle Giant – one of the jazziest combos of the British progressive years – heard here in a set that was one of their biggest over here in the US! There's a slight undercurrent of funk to the record – a choppy, romping quality in some of the rhythms ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty amazing batch of early Glaxo Babies recordings – demos made before their debut Nine Months To The Disco, when Rob Chapman was still in the band – and they were much different band after he split! They're working in a more song based, jagged guitar mode here, but still with the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A surprisingly great little album – and not the schmaltzy blues affair you might expect! The set's an all-instrumental session – featuring Goldberg on organ, with backing by great players that include Billy Butler and Eric Gale on guitar, Seldon Powell on sax, Wilbur Bascomb on trumpet ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, half split seams, and a promo stamp on back. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on Side 2.)
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul ... read moreCD
A really great collection of work from The Grass Roots – one of those groups that we remember from years back, but always forget how much great stuff they recorded! The Grass Roots were a key link between folk and rock in the mid 60s – a group who had some of the raspy charm of the ... read moreCD
Pre-Bread work from Jimmy Griffin – recording here in a sweet Cali setting, thanks to arrangements from the young Jack Nitzsche! The album's got all the light sounds and sunny feelings you'd guess from the title and cover – but Jimmy's also got a voice that's surprisingly strong, too ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker, and a small bit of tape and rip in one spot on the spine.)
Kind of lovable, easygoing 70s rock from Nils Lofgren's Grin – amiable guitar and piano grooves – with a bit of bite in the guitars, but with an laidback sensibility overall! The tunes have an unpretentious, catchy vibe to them, which in other hands in the 70s would have come off as ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Really wonderful work from Margo Guryan – an artist who was probably known more as a songwriter than a singer – especially for her groovy late 60s pop tunes! This package is heavy on those gems – presented in these great demo takes that are nice and stripped-down – often ... read moreCD
