New FreshFresh Out Of Borstal ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good- ... $4.99
A pretty rough and rugged set of rock tracks – performed by a trio who were all prisoners at London's legendary Borstal! The title makes you think this might be some sort of Clash-type record, but the date belies the difference – and the overall approach is kind of in the Rolling Stones/Immediate Records mode of the late 60s – soulful at times, and with some added arrangements that include strings and larger orchestrations behind the core rock sound. Titles include "Long Long While", "Borstal", "See You Later", "You Made Me What I Am", "Life Is What You Make It", and "Take What We Want". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kahimi KarieKahimi Karie ... CD
Minty Fresh, 1998. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty darn groovy stuff! By now, you probably know Kahime Karie as the lovely Japanese singer who's worked frequently with Momus, and who's been touring the US with him over the past few years. Her recordings have been slowly cracking the American market – but this nifty little set brings together 11 of her hard to find recordings from the mid 80s, including more than a few written by Momus. The tracks have a beautiful pop feel, with touches of French and Brazilian stylings, and an approach that will forever restore your faith in pop music! The record features her lovely mini-hit "Good Morning World", a great cover of "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie", a version of Serge Gainsbourg's "Serieux Comme Le Plaisir", and the tracks "Lolitapop Dollhouse", "Le Roi Soleil", and "Mike Alway's Diary".

New SuckTime To Suck ... CD
Parlophone/Fresh (South Africa), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare South African power rock from Suck, who definitely do not suck – fierce, hard charging, heavily rhythmic jams with straight up killer drums and rumbling groove that we'd put up there with some of the more raucous stuff that came out of the Haight Ashbury scene! The bass, drums & guitar interplay do some nice damage, and groove nicely when the mood strikes. A number of the tunes are covers that tunes, by groups like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Grand Funk, but the group puts their own stamp on them, and the titles include "Aimless Lady", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Sin's A Good Man's Brother", "The Whip", "Into The Fire", "Elegy".

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... CD
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". CD

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
Rowdy, vintage R&B-fueled rockers from The Bama Lamas – a contemporary Chicago band with a retro sound, akin to late 50s though mid 60s ragers from The Burnette Brothers to Screamin' Jay Hawkins and lots in between – and they make it sound fresh and vital! A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more. Recorded in mono – glorious mono! LP, Vinyl record album

BeatlesRevolver (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Apple/EMI, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dantalion's ChariotChariot Rising (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An amazing step sideways for London's Zoot Money – a move from mod to psych, with a trippy quality that's quite different from his jazzy sound a few years before! The group's got legendary fame – not just for the shift in styles by Zoot, but also for the fact that it features key work from a young Andy Summers – later of The Police – who works here with some great tones on guitar, and plenty of fresh ideas in all the songs he penned on the record! Money's vocals are wonderful – almost as if Georgie Fame were singing on a psych album – which is as unusual and compelling as you might think. These sessions were recorded in the late 60s, but mostly unissued at the time – but really rank with the best of the early Syd Barrett or Kevin Ayers generation – with titles that include "Coffee Song", "Madman Running Through The Fields", "This Island", "High Flying Bird", "Four Firemen", "Soma (parts 1 & 2)".

Die ParteiLa Freiheit Des Geistes ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
The album's got a classical-styled cover image, but the work is plenty modern within – some great electronic grooves from the best years of the German new wave! Die Partei are a duo we'd rank right up there with Pyrolator and Der Plan – easily as playful as both of those great acts, and graced with a talent for taking the simplest of analogue electric sounds, and really making them sound fresh and groovy! There's no darkness at all in the music – just these cool rhythmic passages that mix beats and keyboards in a way that's very different from US or UK material of the time – never overblown, never too moody – just simple, tuneful, and still wonderful after all these years. Titles include "Ostafrika", "Guten Morgen In Koln", "Rote Schuhe", "Allerheiligen", "Nord Sud Fahrt", "Wo Sind Sie", and "Austauschprogramm". CD

Durutti ColumnLC (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Factory/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Pure and lovely sounds from the early days of Durutti Column – music from a time when guitarist Vini Reilly's conception was quite fresh, and deeply personal – so much so, his music really stood out amidst the darker sounds of his post-punk generation! As with the first Durutti Column album on Factory Records, this one often features Reilly's electric guitar overdubbed in cool ways – spare, but flowing – almost as if he's a Pat Metheny for the UK underground – but serving up short songs that are never overindulgent. But unlike the first record, Reilly also sings a bit – with this light, haunting style that's surprisingly compelling – one of those rare cases where a thin voice can often carry a lot of power – especially with spare instrumentation like this. Titles include the sublime "Missing Boy" – plus "Sketch For Dawn", "Jacqueline", "Messidor", "The Act Committed", "Detail For Paul", and "Portrait For Frazer". LP, Vinyl record album

LoveDa Capo (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Elektra/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
A stunning second album from Love – a set that's still without the fuller orchestrations and baroque touches of Forever Changes – but which already shows the group moving in that direction! The rough, gritty edge of the group is very firmly intact – but they've already got a really fresh way of putting over a song – by complicating the rhythms a bit, going for unusual tonal colors, and furthering the really imaginative songwriting of Arthur Lee. Side one features some incredibly haunting shorter tunes that point the way towards Forever Changes – including the insanely wonderful "She Comes In Colors", the Latin-tinged "Que Vida", and the cuts "Stephanie Knows Who", "The Castle", and "Seven & Seven Is". Side two is a total freak-out – an 18 minute bluesy guitar jam, very over the top stuff – and quite unusual in length for a rock album in 1966! LP, Vinyl record album

MonkeesHeadquarters ... LP
Colgems, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the best ever efforts from the Monkees – really the first album where Mickey, Peter, Davy and Mike took creative control from the TV people – and created and album of groovy late 60s pop to rival those of their influences! Headquarters famously features a lot more original material than previous LPs – and it still sounds remarkably fresh! It really doesn't feature any of their huge hits, so it stands up really well without the crutch of nostalgia! Titles include "You Told Me", "I'll Spend My Life With You", "Band 6", "I Can't Get Her Off My Mind", "Mr Webster", "Sunny Girlfriend", "Zilch", "No Time", "Early Morning Blues And Greens", "Randy Scouse Git".

National WakeWalk In Africa – 1979 to 1981 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... $8.99 15.99
Searing 70s punk from the South African scene – music that's quite a change from the funk and world beat modes you might expect! These guys are unapologeticaly influenced by the sounds of late 70s London – and step out here in a blistering guitar-driven approach to their music – one that's got a short, sharp shock throughout – sometimes in a surprisingly melodic style that echoes some New York work of the time, at other points with a strong strand of reggae influence that links them more towards some of the British Clash contemporaries! The music is plenty darn fresh throughout – a really great discovery to our Northern Hemisphere ears – and supported by a huge batch of notes and information on the band – handled by Keith Jones, the director of the film Punk In Africa. Titles include "Walk In Africa", "Time & Place", "Corner House Stone", "Vatsiketeni", "Black Punk Rockers", and "Beat Up The Lights". CD

PlainsongIn Search Of Amelia Earhart ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from early 70s Elektra – a wonderfully warm, wonderfully solid set of rootsy rock from this group headed by Ian Matthews! The set moves past some of Matthews' earlier efforts – a bit tighter at times, yet still far from any country rock cliches at all – definitely done at a time when this mixing of modes was still a very fresh concept for musicians like Ian, who were more than willing to find a lot of paths of their own. Some of the headier moments really make great use of the darker guitar corners of Andy Roberts – who works in subtle, but great ways – and the set also features a nice mix of acoustic and electric elements, served up sparely, and recorded in a really great way. Titles include "Yo Yo Man", "Louise", "Call The Tune", "Raider", "Side Roads", "I'll Fly Away", and "For The Second Time". CD

Todd RundgrenRunt – The Ballad Of Todd Rundgren ... LP
Bearsville, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $12.99
A beautifully personal statement from the young Todd Rundgren – a set of focused, well-written tunes that point towards his pop genius to come, but also expose a few of his more ambitious modes as well. As always with Rundgren, the best tunes on the set are the mellower, quieter ones – the kind of simple, almost effortless songs that were relatively new territory in the 70s mainstream – and which would end up getting so muddied and overdone by other artists in years to come. Here, though, there's an intimacy that's wonderful – never cliched, and delivered with a style that's honest, yet never overly fragile or self-indulgent – a really fresh voice in pop, and one that helped bridge a world past younger themes from the decade before. Rundgren plays most of the instruments on the set himself – typical for most of his 70s outings – and titles include "Long Flowing Robe", "Boat On The Charles", "Chain Letter", "Be Nice To Me", "Parole", "Remember Me", and "The Ballad (Denny & Jean)".

Arthur RussellWorld Of Arthur Russell ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s. Used ... $9.99
Music beyond description – a unique blend of disco, funk, avant garde, and dub – the wonderful world of the late Arthur Russell! Russell was a bass player by trade, but he was schooled in both classical and Eastern music forms – and brought an incredibly fresh vision to his work in New York in the late 70s and early 80s. To some, Russell was a groundbreaking disco pioneer – with an offbeat production style and unique conception of rhythm. To others, Russell was a performance artist and avant garde musician – working in circles that included Phillip Glass, David Byrne, and Robert Wilson. This mix of modes was very much a part of the post-disco, post-punk sound of New York at the time – and nobody summarized it (or allowed it!) better than Russell himself. This excellent set from Soul Jazz is one of the first to truly give him his due – and it brings together a large amount of his disco-related projects, plus a few more introspective numbers cut under his own name. The sound is incredible – unlike anything you could categorize – especially on the Russell-titled numbers – and as always with Soul Jazz, the whole thing's beautifully packaged, with rich notes on the music and the person behind it! Titles include "Go Bang (Francois K mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Wax The Van" by Lola, "Is It All Over My Face (Larry Levan mix)" by Loose Joints, "In The Cornbelt (Larry Levan mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Pop Your Funk" by Loose Joints, "Schoolbell/Treehouse (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Indian Ocean, and "Let's Go Swimming (Walter Gibbons mix)", "A Little Lost", "In The Light Of The Miracle", and "Keeping Up" by Arthur Russell himself!

EMI/Lion, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
Lost legendary work from Guy Skornik – a heady set from early 70s France, and proof that there's a hell of a lot of greatness to discover on that scene! The album's got a blend of psych fuzz and deeper ideas that's not that far from Serge Gainsbourg – although the overall presentation is more cerebral, and influenced by the ideas of GI Gurdjieff, carried out by Skornik in this sublime blend of acoustic elements and larger orchestrations directed by jazzman Ivan Jullien! Like some of the best French work of this time, the album has a wonderful balance between the personal and professional – the intimate and the ambitious – which really makes things exciting and fresh, and very different than anything you might have been digging on this side of the Atlantic at the time. Titles include "Realite", "L'Ile De Paques", "Fulcanni", "Je Vois Ce Que Je Crois", "Quest Ce Que Le Dream", and "Je Ne Sais Pas Je Ne Sais Plus Rien". CD

There's nobody like The Small Faces at their best – as you'll hear from the group's killer 1966 album on Decca! The style here is tight, right, and fully-formed straight from the start – easily one of the best UK 60s hybrids of American influences from R&B, garage rock, and early psych – sorted out perfectly by a quartet of lads who really know what they're doing. And the album's maybe even more focused than the group's later album on Immediate – as here, The Small Faces are all business, and the right kind of gritty – just fantastic stuff that's fresh and exciting even today! Titles include "Shake", "Come On Children", "You Better Believe It", "IT's Too Late", "One Night Stand", "Sorry She's Mine", "Sha La La Lee", and "Own Up Time". 2CD version is filled with great stuff – the full mono mix of the album, plus bonus tracks that include "Patterns", "Grow Your Own", "What's A Matter Baby", and "I've Got Mine" – and then a full bonus CD of 14 more tracks – all strange mixes and alternate versions of album tracks!

Soundgarden's massive breakthrough – and a much-deserved one, too – a great moment for 90s rock! Soundgarden started out in the indie underground, but unlike SO many bands who were mined by the major labels only to find that the mainstream was no place for them, Soundgarden really belonged to the world at large. The BIG sound, heavy riffs and wailing vocals are rock godhood personified, but at their best – as they are on Superunknown – there's an artful integrity that's not to be overlooked. Includes "Let Me Drown", "My Wave", "Fell On Black Days", "Mailman", "Superunknown", "Head Down", "Black Home Sun", "Spoonman", "Limo Wreck", "The Day I Tried To Live", "Kickstand", "Fresh Tendrils", "4th Of July", "Half", "Like Suicide" and "She Likes Surprises".

There's a darker, more sophisticated sound than on the group's debut – less straighter folk influences, and more of a mix of complicated country and late 60s adult vocals – held perfectly by Linda Ronstadt's lead, but wrapped up nicely with a bit of a harmony sound at times.

Seminal sounds from the French underground of the early 80s – music from the group Vox Populi, plus the related Pacific 231 – both with a dark edge that rivals the best coming out of the north of England during the post-punk years! Like Cabaret Voltaire or 23 Skidoo, these guys really have a strong sense of the darker uses of analogue electronics – an understanding that's clearly informed by musique concrete, but turned towards simpler, starker ideas as well – often with the kind of chilling edge that we love in Throbbing Gristle at their best.

Tony Joe WhiteBlack & White (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Monument/Warner (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Damn soulful work from Tony Joe White – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was so great at skirting both the borders of rock and soul music at the end of the 60s! There's a really fresh, new groove going on here – a vibe that shows an artist who's spent a decade drawing in all the best elements of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a slight touch of Nashville country at times too (no surprise, given the Monuments Records release of the set) – but also a more biting singer/songwriter ethos that really pushes the whole thing out to a much bigger rockish vibe! Drums are amazing – played by Jerry Carrigan with an especially funky quality on side one – and the tunes are a mix of great originals by White – many of which would be covered by others in years to come – plus some well-chosen covers, too. Tracks include "Soul Francisco", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", "Polk Salad Annie", "Aspen Colorado", "Who's Makin Love", and "Scratch My Back". CD features two bonus tracks too – "Ten More Miles" and "Georgia Pines". CD

Digatone (Austria), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $29.99
Weird and wild sounds from the Austrian scene of the late 50s and early 60s – not the usual proto-rockers you might find on compilations of this nature – but some especially unusual music that's unlike anything else we've heard before! There's definitely some of the exotic and rockish touches promised in the title – but many cuts use them in very different ways – with the instruments coming in at points you might not expect, and echoey production abstracting all the elements – almost shaking them up so that they come out in a very fresh way! A few tunes are straight, but many are very much in the farther reaches of oddball and exotic – and titles include "Biggy's Little Car" by Johnny & The Shamrocks', "Olymp" by The Austrian Evergreens, "Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie" by Hannes Patek & The Vienna Beatles, "Gran Chaco" by The Tramps, "Geisterstunden Cha Cha" by Uzzi & Bill Grah's Olympia Band, "Nachts In Chicago" by The Hubbubs, and "Inka City 60" by Die 4 Bambis.

A new batch of music put together in the spirit of the legendary Morning Of The Earth movie – that famous surf film from Australia that really drew new cosmic connections between mankind, the water, and the music! The original soundtrack for that film is often listed as one of the best Australian rock records ever – and this new collection really follows suit, by combining the older trippy inspirations with a range of fresh voices from both sides of the Pacific – not just Australian performers, but some great American artists as well. There's a very timeless feel to the record – a vibe that could put it anywhere between the space of the 70s and the 21st Century – and some of the older artists nestle in nicely next to younger talents – in a really well-directed, cohesive-sounding record. Titles include "Unchained" by Tom Curren, "Drifting On A Daydream" by Grouplove, "To Be Young" by Andrew Kidman & The Windy Hills, "Gravity" by Lee Ann Curren, "The Weatherman" by Angus Stone, "The Pier" by Dirty Three, "We Love Our Hole" by Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo Gang, "Great Divine" by Xavier Rudd, "Wavves" by Jack River, "Before Your Very Eyes" by Atoms For Peace, and "In My Moondreams" by Brian Wilson.

BeatlesRevolver (180 gram vinyl – mono) ... LP
Apple/EMI, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 9, 2014
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". LP, Vinyl record album

New English BeatWha'ppen ... CD
Go Feet/London, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene! Wha'ppen has lots of fresh instrumentation and experimentation – but that's in service of some tight, insistent songcraft – and they never ever bury their their Caribbean influences. There's a bit more Afro Beat-inspired rhythms and some atmospheric underground pop touches, but it's still get plenty of the Jamaican style we loved about their earlier work, too – on a record that didn't get the acclaim it deserved at the time! Titles include "Monkey Murders", "I Am Your Flag", "Walk Away", "Get A Job", "The Limits We Set", "Dream Home In NZ", and "Drowning". CD

New Flamin GrooviesShake Some Action (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great move in a fresh direction for the Flaming Groovies – a set that has the group working with producer Dave Edmunds, and hitting this sweet power pop sort of sound! The Groovies still have all the tight energy of before – but they also seem to be paying tribute to an older vintage of British material – as evidenced by their 60s look on the cover, and the album's back cover parody of a stance by The Beatles! The short tracks are plenty tuneful, and Edmunds has a way of compressing the fuzz down tightly, but never in a way that makes things sound slick or commercial. Vocal chorus bits are especially great – surprisingly catchy, almost in a Brit Invasion way – and titles include "Shake Some Action", "You Tore Me Down", "I Saw Her", "Teenage Confidential", "I Can't Hide", "She Said Yeah", and "Sometimes".

New VariousRare Mod 4 – A Fourth Volume Of 60s Underground Rhythm 'N'Blues, Psych & Soul ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Raucous R&B, tight psych and mod soul from the late 60s UK – on a stellar Vol 4 in the great Rare Mod series from Acid Jazz – and nearly everything on it is entirely fresh to our ears! Rare Mod really goes deep, uncovering tunes that are honestly as infectious as the major mod standard bearing hits of the day – with raw drums, killer Hammond organ grooves and gritty vocals that give everything a sharp edge – but it’s commited by groups that proudly flaunt classic soul and R&B influences. Great stuff! Includes "Big Bird" by Dog Soul, "Tell Daddy" by All Night Workers, "Together Forever" by Gary Farr and the T-Bones, "Me And My Baby" by Row Boat, "Cover Girl" by Perfumed Garden, "The Thinking Kind" by The Wild Ones, "Arthur" by Virgin Sleep, "LSD" by Tomorrow's Children and more, 16 in all.
