New MonksBlack Monk Time ... CD
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1966. Used Gatefold ... $19.99
The one astounding studio album of proto punk/abrasive psych genius from the Monks – a true masterpiece if their ever was one, a record that's been ripped off by myriad more famous groups in both the mainstream and rock underground of the past 40 years! The group's status as discharged G.I.'s informs some of spewed vitriol, but beyond that there's little connection to any trends or scenes, the Monks are true originals in a world of imitators, and that adds a layer of excitement to an already mind blowing listen. The album's wild organ washes, primitive drums and guitar, and harsh, bizarre vocal rants prefigured everything from the Stooges, to Rocket From The Tombs, to the more predictable punk stuff that arrived 18 years later – yet it still grooves. Outrageous and incredible! "Monk Time", "Shut Up", "Boys Are Boys And Girls Are Choice", "Higgle-Dy-Piggle-Dy", "I Hate You", "We Do Wie Du", "Drunken Maria", "Blast Off!", "That's My Girl", "Cuckoo", "Love Can Tame The Wild", "He Went Down To The Sea" and more – the first 12 tracks from the original LP release bundled with later singles and a live track. Light In The Attic's reissue has better sound than we've ever heard for this material, and a great booklet of notes and photos. CD

Jimmy WebbSuspending Disbelief ... CD
Collectors Choice, 1993. Used ... $4.99
An unusual later effort from Jimmy Webb – his first return to the studio in many many years, and a set that comes off with a serious, more mature sound overall. Webb's still definitely got a way with a tune here, and at some level, the aging perspective he puts into the songs serves them well, with some of the fragile edges you might get in later vocal efforts from Randy Newman, or Brian Wilson's pre-Smile revival years. Linda Ronstadt co-produced the record, and at times orchestrations are large, but never overwhelming – and titles include "Elvis & Me", "It Won't Bring Her Back", "Sandy Cove", "Friends To Burn", "Too Young To Die", "I Don't Know How To Love You Anymore", and "Adios".

New Dick Dale & His Del-TonesSurfer's Choice ... LP
Deltone, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first LP from Dick Dale And His Del-Tones – about as influential of a genre guitar gem as you could ask for – the great Surfer's Choice from 1962! Hilariously, a question on the top of the back cover reads, "Why Is Dick Dale The Surfer's Choice?", and although we cannot speak for actual surfers, surf guitar fans need not be asked. Raw, rumbling, exciting surf rockers from the king – much of it recorded at Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa Beach, where Dale's legend was made. Includes "Surf Beat", "Misirlou Twist", "Peppermint Man", "Surfing Drums", "Shake N Stomp", "Let's Go Trippin" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(60s mono pressing. Cover has some wear, a spot of sticker remnants in one corner, some pen, a bit of seam splitting, and some stains. Label has a peeled mark from sticker removal.)

New Mama Cass (Cass Elliott)Cass Elliott/The Road Is No Place For A Lady (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Collectors Choice, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mama Cass on RCA – a little-known chapter in her solo career! First up is the album Cass Elliott – a much more subtle effort than some of Mama's previous records – more deeply thoughtful in terms of the song choices, mixing soul and sophistication in a way that recalls Cass' duet album with Dave Mason – but still with some of the echoes of her pop work on Dunhill. The vocals are really amazing – even more mindblowing than usual for Mama – proof that she was definitely one of the most important voices of her time. Titles include great versions of "Disney Girls" and "Baby I'm Yours" – plus "I'll Be Home", "Cherries Jubilee", "It's All In The Game", "That Song", and "When It Doesn't Work Out". Next is The Road Is No Place For A Lady – excellent solo work from Mama Cass, done with a subtly soulful groove on some of the best numbers! Cass always had a bit of a soul vibe on some of her Dunhill work – almost an American equivalent to the pop soul of Dusty Springfield – but here, there's a deepened sense of that earlier vibe – almost a Merry Clayton sort of sound at points, which comes as a wonderful surprise. Titles include "Say Hello", "Walk Beside Me", "Break Another Heart", "Does Anybody Love You", "Walk Beside Me", "Who In The World", and "Oh Babe What Would You Say". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "East Of The Sun", "Try It Baby", and "We'll See" – the last 2 of which are previously unreleased! CD
