Early work from Ted Nugent – working here as the searing lead guitarist of the mighty Amboy Dukes! The Nuge doesn't sing on the set, but his guitar is definitely in the spotlight on most numbers – ripping out with a rawness that beats his later superstar work, and which is free to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Annette sings songs from the film Beach Party – in which she starred – plus some other non-film numbers that round out the set, and make it a full album of vocal tracks, all done in a tight 60s girl pop mode. Titles include "Promise Him Anything", "Beach Party", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some tape and peeling ont he spine, light wear, and a bit of pen on back.)
Wonderfully sweet pop from The Arbors – a crucially overlooked vocal quartet from the end of the 60s – one who fused earlier harmony modes with some of the hipper styles of the Sunshine Pop generation! A decade before, and the group might have been a standard Four Freshman copy – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a tracklist sticker, a small hole on the front, some light wear, a small split on the bottom seam, some stains, and some marker on the back.)
One of the harder to find LPs by this fantastic pop harmony group from LA. You already know their hits from other LPs, but this one's got a bit more of a rock sound, and some excellent groovy production by Bones Howe. All of the tracks are originals, and they've got nice groovy themes, as you'll ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Warner/Seven Arts pressing. Cover has a bit of light wear.)
Debbie Au —
Clay ... LP Ranwood, 1972. Near Mint- ....
A really cool little album from the Beach Boys – a set that definitely takes its "party" title seriously, in a way that has the group singing in a somewhat live and spontaneous manner! There's sort of a "live in studio" feel here – with production that's less ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing, with some marker on the labels. Cover has some wear.)
A higher concept album than usual for the team of Beaver & Krause – a record that still features plenty of cool moog and electronics by the pair, but which also has them teamed up with arranger Jimmie Haskell in a set of tunes that mixes older themes with original numbers! A fair bit of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Very cool – some early Australian recordings from The Bee Gees – pre-disco, pre-Atco, and mighty nice! Titles include "Born A Man", "Don't Say Goodbye", "Timber", "Peace Of Mind", and "All Of My Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Big Brother & The Holding Company —
Cheap Thrills ... LP Columbia, 1968. Sealed Gatefold ....
Cheap Thrills, maybe – but they cut deeply and last forever!

The raw manic energy of the group at their live best is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 70s pressing – PC 9700 – with old Nice Price sticker on shrinkwrap.)
Tight rhythms, anthemic melodies, and postpunk dynamics from South Africa's Blk Jks – delivering on the earlier EP and positioning themselves as one of most unique groups in the indie scene – on any continent!

Blood Sweat & Tears —
3 ... LP Columbia, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ....
Just Sold Out!
Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a tracklist sticker, clear tape on the spine, and masking tape on the seams.)
Archetypal heavy rock from Blue Cheer – one of THE underground classics of the late 60s! Guitars are firmly, very jammingly in force – and the set's produced to perfection by the legendary Abe "Voco" Kesh. Powerful, fuzzed out, blues based fire at it's most forceful and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(2nd US pressing in the textured cover, with "Owsley..." text on back.)
Blue Oyster Cult —
Mirrors ... LP Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ ....
Brilliant garage psych from Blues Magoos – a group that's raw and punchy enough to pummel, but pulled off some sweeter numbers and lighter harmonies incredibly well! Walloping drums, excitable vocals and wailing organ grooves – the cracked the charts, but still bring a fully charged ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)
Buddy Bohn —
Places ... LP Happy Tiger, Early 70s. Very Good+ ....
A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
David Bowie —
Stage ... LP RCA, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ....
A tremendous live set cut during the height of David Bowie's years in Berlin – and the kind of performance that showed that his more experimental work from this time could be every bit as appealing as the classics! The first half of the set features some amazing numbers from the Heroes and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has an ink stamp, some wear, spiltting on the top seam, and a spot of tape on the spine.)
Brilliant 60s pop from the team of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – best known for their key early songwriting work for The Monkees, but a heck of a great duo on their own! Boyce & Hart have a sparkly, sunshiney sound that's very much a part of The Monkees generation – a beautiful ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear, a name in marker on back, and a center split on the bottom seam.)
Great songs, amazing vocals, and impeccable production – a stellar third record from The Buckinghams, and one of the few really big albums to come out of Chicago in the 60s! This time round, the group are deepening their sound a bit – going for less of the easy hooks of the first album ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye mono pressing. Cover has a bit of light wear.)
Moody sonics from Nick Butcher – seemingly served up from instrumental sources which are then manipulated electronically! Some of the best moments have this kind of crispy, crackling sort of feel – almost the poetic beauty of a CD messing up, but a lot more melodic – often ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cool white vinyl pressing, in nice fold-out silkscreen cover!)
Titles include "You Can Run But You Can't Hide", "My Song", "The Animal", "The Breadline", "Ain't That A Lot Of Love", "I Don't Wanna Go", "Day To Day", "Here I Go Again", "The Flame", and "Watch'em Tell ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Early genius from The Carpenters – a really tremendous little album, and one that's quite different than their soft rock hits of the 70s! There's a plenty playful feel to the set – energy that comes right off the best Sunshine Pop of late 60s A&M Records – to which this album ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A legendary batch of funky rock tracks – noteworthy not only for production by Jimi Hendrix, but also for the group's insanely great groove! There's a bluesy undercurrent here, but sharpened much more strongly for the funk generation – which takes Cat Mother way past contemporaries ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really compelling second set from Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys – and quite different than the first! On their Polydor debut, the group had Jimi Hendrix at the production helm – but this time they're taking things on their own, with a feel that's nicely loose and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
