The Jimi Hendrix Experience at their most classic! Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness. Titles include "EXP", "Up From The Skies", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A true classic by Jimi with the original Experience lineup – the third of three straight up masterpiece LPs to comeout in just over a year's time by the group! You could call the leftfield astral effects in the mix experimental if you had to – innovations in the studio with echo, that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label, red "R" pressing. Cover has light wear.)
The band's first album – and probably still their best. Recorded in 1973, with a young experimental Fred Frith firmly in place. The group also includes Chris Cutler, Tim Hodgkinson, John Greaves, and Geoff Leigh – and titles include "Nirvana For Mice", "Teenbeat", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Seminal Brit art rock from the mid 70's, from the band that featured Fred Frith, Chris Cutler, Dagmar Krause, and Lindsay Cooper. Jagged, arty, and political, with tracks that include "War", "Living in the Heart of the Beast", and "The Long March". LP, Vinyl record album
US pressing of this early Henry Cow record. With the quintet lineup of Frith, Hodgkinson, Greaves, Cutler, and Cooper, and including "Bittern Storm Over Ulm", "Deluge", "Linguaphonie", and "Ruins". With a cool gatefold cover, and music that'll send you ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover and label have a name stamp.)
An overlooked gem from The Holy Modal Rounders – the group's fifth album, and a set that shows them moving into a slightly more subtle style than before – but still with plenty of their trademark touches intact! The work often has a sweetly folksy feel – one that conjures up the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, several stains, and two peeled spots in the bottom right corner.)
Features early work by Duane and Gregg Allman! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, a cut corner, a sticker, some stains, and a bit of pen.)
Human League —
Crash ... LP A&M, 1986. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
LP, Vinyl record album
Human League —
Dare ... LP A&M/Virgin, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has a factory sticker on the spine.)
Humble Pie scales back a bit on Thunderbox – a tighter set than the preceding Eat It – but like that album, it's overlooked these days and it has plenty to recommend it! The Steve Marriot's and Clem Clemson's guitars bring the thunder, but the wailing harmonica and the soulfu vocals ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Atco pressing. Cover has wear, and aging, which is worse on the back.)
Gift ... LP Polydor, 1982. Very Good+ ...
Just Sold Out!
The final proper album by The Jam! The Gift is a far more diversely soul-steeped set of tunes than anything they'd done up to this point – and in hindsight, it feels more like a starting point for Paul Weller's career to come than a final album for The Jam! While they're working more soul ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second set from the Jam, and a great batch of sharp post punk cuts for Mods young and old! Whether it's anthems like the title track and "All Around The World", their rousing taking on Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" or mellower numbers like "Tonight At ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has light wear, a promo sticker on the front, and a gold stamp on the back.)
Pretty cool and groovy work from Tommy James – with cuts that include "Papa Rolled His Own", "Sweet Cherry Wine", "Cellophane Symphony", "Evergreen", "On Behalf Of The Entire Staff & Management", and "The Love Of A Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a few creases and a stain on one corner.)
Brilliantly bright, tuneful 60s sounds from Tommy James & The Shondells – groovy stuff that's often as deeply catchy as their bigger hits, but also a bit more obscure as well – which makes this album a lot more fresh than some of their other records! There's still a nice raw jangly ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A standout early classic from Jan & Dean – and the record that really helped make them as much of a studio force as The Beach Boys! Jan arranged and produced the entire set – and he definitely gives Brian Wilson a run for his money – coming up with cool charts, sharp ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear, partially split top and bottom seams, some stains, and a couple of small tack holes.)
Incredible vocals from Jan & Dean – a set that really has the duo taking off wonderfully – with soaring harmonies that are even better than before! The pair were already great from the start, but their singing really hits the limit here – often working with a bit less ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a split bottom seam, a split bottom seam with some tape residue, a small split on the top seam, and some light stains on the back.)
The late live album from Jefferson Airplane – who were at the end of their journey, but whatever their personal differences may have been at the time, they still put on a helluva great rock and roll show! Thirty Seconds Over Winterland was recorded at that legendary San Francisco venue, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear and splitting on the top seam.)
Jennifer Warnes is probably best known for her later fame singing hit songs from films, or for her work with Leonard Cohen – but here, she's just known as Jennifer – a lovely little pop singer with a slightly folksy, hippieish feel! I Can Remember Everything is an album that's got some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of marker in one corner, a small split on the spine, and some fading on along the top seam and opening.)
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The crowning achievement of a young Elton John – and the record that took an already-great run of earlier records, and pushed it even further with a new depth of songwriting and imagination! The double-length set isn't exactly a concept album – at least not one with a unified narrative ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original tri-fold pressing. Cover has a name in pen on the front.)
One of the best of Elton's early years – with cuts that include "Hercules", "Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters", "Salvation", "Slave", "Rocket Man", "Honkey Cat", "Mellow", and "I Think I'm Going To Kill Myself". LP, Vinyl record album
(Uni pressing, in the envelope cover, with light wear.)

(Cover has some wear, some small stains, and a center split on the spine.)
Janis Joplin —
Pearl ... LP Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ...
The sound of a legend – a raw rocking classic from Janis Joplin – arguably the most perfectly-formed record from her all-too-short run in modern music! There's a focus here that's even sharper than before – and a rising of the funky undercurrents that Janis always had in her ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groovy mid 60s material from The Jujus – from ultra catchy garage rock to more of a psychedelic sound that's just as tuneful! The melodies are sweet, and the sax adds a little depth to the more sugary moments, and it's a really winning compilation! LP, Vinyl record album
