New VariousButtons – Starter Kit (aka Yellow Pills) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 22.98
A reimagined version of the legendary Yellow Pills compilation on Numero – 20 songs from the original compilation, plus two bonus tracks, new liner notes, and lots of cool sleeve scans, photos, and more! Forget everything you know about rock music in the late 70s – all the punk rock and new wave that's been immortalized over the years – and get ready to discover a whole new world of power pop! At the time, the power pop underground was as important to some ears as the artier and angrier work coming out of the east coast and UK – and the power pop world was one that could co-exist a bit more peacefully with mainstream rock, while still offering a great opportunity for bands on various local scenes. The work here has echoes of more famous acts of the time – like The Cars, The Kings, or The Knack – but it's also got a bit more of a home-grown, punk rock edge – one that comes through beautifully in the guitar parts, vocals, and unabashed hooks of the tunes. The set's a follow-up to the original Yellow Pills set by zine publisher Jordan Oakes – and it delves deeper than even that one, with a real focus on work from the end of the 70s, and acts that never had great chart success overall. Titles include "High School" by Tommy Rock, "She's Hi Fi" by The Trend, "There Goes My Heart Again" by The Kids, "Not My Girl Anymore" by The Bats, "All I Want" by The Colors, "Domestic/Imported" by The Toms, "Sunshine USA" by Randy Winburn, "One In A Million" by Luxury, "She's The Girl" by The Tweeds, "Rave It Up" by Colors, and "Hey Little Girl" by The Kids.

Agitation FreeSecond ... LP
Music Factory/Made In Germany (Germany), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 17.99
A nicely trippy effort from Berlin prog maestros Agitation Free – a blend of spacey keys, intricate guitar work, and rewarding sounds that draw as much from hypnotic melodies as they do from spare dissonance! The band was experimenting with a mellotron this time out – tripping everything out just a little bit more and adding a bit of a groovier overall sound. Titles include "First Communication", "Dialogue And Random", "Laila Pt 1", "Laila Pt 2", "In The Silence Of The Morning Sunrise", the 2-part suite "A Quiet Walk" and "Haunted Island".

AirVirgin Suicides ... CD
Record Makers/Astralwerks, 2000. Used ... $3.99
Ok, ok – so it's from the Sofia Coppla movie (based on a pretty great book) – but in all fairness this is a really great album from this groovy French combo, and probably one of their straightest (we mean that in a good way). While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their usual atmospherics are dusted off with fairly jazzy instrumentation and post-Bacharach arrangements. Gordon Tracks sings guest vocals on "Playground Love" and the whole thing's got a beautiful airy 60s pop style to it – tracks include "Clouds Up", "Bathroom Girl", "Cemetary Party", "Dirty Trip", "Highschool Lover (Theme From The Virgin Suicides)", "Afternoon Sister", "Ghost Song", and "Dead Bodies". Pretty heady titles. CD

Allman Brothers1971 Fillmore East Recordings (4LP box set – on 200 gram vinyl) ... LP
Universal, 1971. New Copy 4 LPs ... $72.99 79.98
Soulful southern rock at its absolute finest – and the Allman Brothers at their peak! The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings box set puts together performances from a legendary series of concerts the band played that year – originally serving as the source material for the classic At Fillmore East live album, but as geniunely great as that album is, it only hints at the expansive improvisational genius that happened live on stage. This set does a terrific job of putting that on display – and it's brilliant stuff! The 4LP version is jam-packed with both consise tunes and freewheeling jams – all recorded by Tom Dowd – on March 12 and March 13 (2 sets each night), plus a closing show on June 27. It's also heavy duty and top quality – with hours of essential recordings from those 5 sets – on 4 X 200 gram LPs packaged in a heavy outer box! Includes "Statesboro Blues", "Trouble No More", "Don't Keep Me Wondering", In Memory Of Elisabeth Reed", "Midnight Rider", "One Way Out", "Stormy Monday", "Hot 'Lanta", "You Don't Love Me", "Whipping Post", "Mountain Jam" and "Drunk Hearted Boy" – many running WELL north of the of the 10 minutes mark – as Allmans will be Allmans.

Sunset/Cleopatra, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
Classic early material from these godfathers of the German prog scene – 1969's Phallus Dei – the first LP from the "II" grouping of the Duul commune! Phallus Dei encompasses everything from free jazz, to spiraling psychedelia and outright space jams – all graced with the group's trademark oddball vocal flourishes! A pivotal moment of late psych and early prog – and titles include the side-long, 20+ minute masterpiece "Phallus Dei" – plus "Luzifers Gholom", "Kanaan", "Dem Guten, Schonen, Wahren", and "Henriette Krotenschwanz".

Archie WhitewaterArchie Whitewater (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cadet/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 19.98
A damn legendary record from the last years of Chess Records – and for good reason, too! Archie Whitewater were a group that was years ahead of its time – a rock combo, but one with real genre-crossing sensibilities that made them perfect for the experimental styles at the Cadet/Concept side of Chess – the same slice of the musical universe that gave us Rotary Connection and important productions from Charles Stepney! The sound here has some surprisingly soulful elements at times – especially the instrumentation, which features some great break moments that get nice and funky, and strands of soulful jazz and blues that really make the music way different than most other groups we can think of – or maybe a bit like a rare elite who shared such visionary territory with Archie Whitewater, such as Shades Of Joy on their first Fontana record. The keyboards and sax lines are as great as the drums – and the vocals have a melancholy undercurrent that's a really refreshing change from some of the overly-postured modes you'd get from other groups in 1970. Titles include the sublime sample cut "Cross Country" – but there's loads of other nice ones with the same stripped-down "Dusty Fingers" sort of groove – and other titles include "Life Is A River", "Home Again", "Lament For The Walking Dead", "Seacoast", "Country To the City", "Friends & Neighbors", and "Mist Of The Early Morning".

AssociationRenaissance ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An aptly-titled album, as it sprung the genius of The Association fully onto the world – and forever changed the rules for dreamy vocal pop music! The album's a wonderful blend of sweet harmonies, LA production, and the kind of slightly-trippy song stylings you already know from The Association's biggest hits. However, the album's also filled with great little songs that you probably haven't heard before – which makes it an even bigger treat, kind of like stumbling upon a treasure box of unheard musical gems that you've been looking for your entire life! Titles include "Songs In The Wind", "Memories Of You", "No Fair At All", "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies", and "Another Time Another Place". LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1974. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A British art rock jam session, more or less, pulled together by Soft Machine bassist Kevin Ayers, who recruited Eno, John Cale and Nico, former bandmate Robert Wyatt, the enigmatic Rabbit (John Bundrick) on keyboards – more well known for his work with the Who – plus Mike Oldfield on guitar and a number of other guests and co-conspirators. A nice document of the scene a the time, with concise performances and a much tighter feel than you might imagine given the circumstances of the recording. 9 numbers in all, including "Driving Me Backwards", "Baby's On Fire", "Heartbreak Hotel", "The End", "May I?", "Shouting IN A Bucket Blues", "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes", "Everybody's Sometime And Some People's All The Time Blues" and "Two Goes Into Four".

Selda BagcanSelda (1979) ... CD
Turkuola/Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
Selda packs a heck of a punch on this late 70s set – a record that's still got all the wonderful elements of her previous three albums – that unique mix of folksy roots, protest themes, and nicely trippy production! Selda's holding an electrified version of the baglama on the front cover – and the instrument really sounds great on the tracks throughout – piercing with a punctuated sound that's almost like an electric sitar, but a more more straightforward – a perfect accompaniment to the rich, flowing lines of Selda's vocals. None of the tunes are in English, but there's a really universal appeal to the music – as Selda's the kind of singer that's so expressive, one hardly needs to know the lyrics to get the meaning of her tunes. Titles include "Ona Don", "Hele Yar", "Ayaginda Kundura", "Hizir Pasa", "Cendarme", "Izin Ize Benzemiyor", and "Sorsunlar Beni". CD

Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization! Although the sweet image of a girl and guitar on the cover might make you think the record's a folk set, the overall production is heavily electric – filled with fuzzed-up touches on the guitars, and usually supported by some funky drumming that gives most of the record a cool Eastern break sort of feel! Lyrics aren't in English, but they're oddly compelling even if you don't know what they mean – as Selda's voice has a weird other-wordly quality, and comes off with the same tripped-out qualities as the music! Titles include "Ince Ince", "Nasirli Eller", "Mehmet Emmi", "Dost Uyan", "Gitme", "Kizil Dere", "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz", and "Meydan Sizindir". LP features 2 bonus tracks – but it's not like you've got the original album, and needed those as an incentive to buy the reissue! LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1971. New Copy 4 CDs & DVD ... $79.99 109.99
An amazing treasure from the best years of The Band – a killer live set from the last few days of 1971 – one that features the group in great concert formation, working with some wicked horns arranged by Allen Toussaint! The album's got a sound that's maybe even more soulful than the group's studio classics – and contains wonderful workings of key classics, with some very spontaneous inflections – and some great bonus encore material with a stage appearance from Bob Dylan! This massive package features 4CDs with 56 tracks in all – two from the core live show, and then two more from the New Years Eve show of 12/31/1971 – recorded in the soundboard mix! Also features two rare film clips – and an audio DVD of the performance in 5.1 surround sound! The whole thing comes in a very cool book-like package, with lots of notes and photos – and titles include "I Shall Be Released", "Up On Cripple Creek", "The WS Walcott Medicine Show", "Life Is A Carnival", "Get Up Jake", "Rag Mama Rag", "Chest Fever", "The Rumor", "Smoke Signal", and "Don't Ya Tell Henry".

Harvest/Parlophone, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The brilliant full exposure of the voice that was always buried in the larger sounds of Pink Floyd – a definite madcap romp from the amazing Syd Barrett – and a record that still sounds as captivatingly chilling all these many decades later! There's a stripping-down here that's really tremendous – no need for all the overblown, long-winded excursions of other forces in the psych generation – as Syd takes the whole thing down to its core, and carries it off with a charm that's almost folksy – yet which, like David Bowie at about this point in his career, manages to manipulate and dismiss the folk generation as much as it does the psych one too! David Gilmour and Roger Waters are on hand to help a bit with production – and titles include "Octopus", "Golden Hair", "Long Gone", "She Took A Long Cool Look", "Late Night", "If It's In You", "Love You", and "Terrapin".

A Syd Barrett treasure trove – and an essential compilation of unreleased work that's a much-needed companion to Barrett's classic albums for EMI! The material here is all from the years 1968 to 1970 – tracks recorded before, during, and around the sessions that later became The Madcap Laughs and Barrett – but which often also show a wider-ranging side of Syd's talents, especially on the few demo recordings – which offer an even more personal glimpse of the artist trying to find his way. Instrumentation is a bit more acoustic than on Barrett's full albums, but even the acoustic guitar is played with these dark tones that have the same sinister quality as the chords he brought to Pink Floyd – maybe even more striking here without any fuzz, as they resonate alongside Syd's offbeat lyrics. Titles include "Rats", "Golden Hair", "Opel", "Clowns & Jugglers", "Birdie Hop", "Let's Spilt", and "Swan Lee". LP, Vinyl record album

Like their Party album from the 60s, this set shows a slightly different side of the group than their Brian Wilson-polished studio sessions – a bit more freewheeling but still incredibly harmonic, almost a glimpse at what it might have been like when they were just jamming around in the early days. Titles include "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena", "In My Room", "Monster Mash", "Let's Go Trippin", "Fun Fun Fun", "Long Tall Texan", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "The Wanderer", and "I Get Around".

Beach BoysFriends/20/20 ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... $2.99
An amazing little CD – one that features 2 of the best post-Smile Beach Boys albums in one package, plus some excellent bonus cuts too! Friends is a completely incredible record – one that's built around small, short, sweet songs that are almost an adult take on themes of relationships first explored in Pet Sounds – produced with a homier and more personal approach that's really great. Classics on the album include "Busy Doin Nothin", "Transcendental Meditation", "Little Bird", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Be Here In The Morning", "Friends", and "Wake The World". 20/20 is a slightly lesser album, but still pretty nice too – and is noteworthy as the repository of some bits that were destined to originally appear on Smile, and never made the Smiley Smile cut – as well as the genesis of some of the ideas that would come out more fully on the excellent Sunflower and Surf's Up albums. And in fact, if the Beach Boys had never cut another album, 20/20 would be a masterpiece – and it's only through comparison with their real classics that it only weakens a bit. Tracks include the sublime "Cabinessence", plus "Do It Again", "I Can Hear Music", "Be With Me", "All I Want To Do", "I Want To Sleep", and "The Nearest Faraway Place". And if that's not enough, the CD features excellent bonus cuts like "Break Away", "Celebrate The News", "We're Together Again", and a cover of "Walk On By"! CD

The slimmed-down, single LP effort that Capitol issued after the collapse of the legendary Smile album – and a pretty sublime set nonetheless! Sure, some might argue that you can't enjoy Brian Wilson's genius until you've listened to 20 bootlegs of the sessions with dozens of takes on the tunes – but honestly, this slim little set is more than enough to prove to us that the man's a genius – and it's filled with really wonderful tunes that still stand as some of the most incredible moments in 60s pop! Production is amazing, vocals are wonderful, and the quick changes of theme and setting really keep things interesting – all without making us feel like we're getting hit over the head with some cheap gimmicks. Titles include "Vegetables", "Heroes & Villains", "Fall", "Little Pad", "With Me Tonight", and "Wind Chimes". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... $3.99
Incredible stuff – and some of the best post-Pet Sounds material you can find by the Beach Boys! We hardly ever see either of these on vinyl anymore – and it's been years since they've been out on CD – so we're extra-pleased to have them back to back on one CD! Sunflower is the kind of record that's easy to pass by when you're first getting into the group, but later on – after digging for gems on records like Wild Honey or Friends, you'll come back to it as a totally solid record, filled with loads of excellent little songs like "Slip On Through", "This Whole World", "Cool, Cool Water", "Tears In The Morning", and "Add Some Music To Your Day". Surf's Up is a bit more spotty – but it's also got some incredible work by the group – including "Disney Girls", "'Til I Die", and "Surf's Up". 22 tracks in all – and a CD that will keep you going long after you get tired of listening to Pet Sounds and Smiley Smile.

Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... $9.99
The album that first launched the Beach Boys on an unsuspecting 60s scene – and a record that really raised the bar for rock and roll at Capitol Records! Although based around their early "Surfin Safari" hit, the album already shows that the group's got way more to offer than filler between the singles – a rich approach to their music that takes the 50s harmony styles of The Four Freshmen, and turns it on even more youthful, yearning themes – sometimes with a gimmick, sometimes with a surprisingly upfront sense of emotion. Titles include "Heads You Win Tails I Lose", "Cuckoo Clock", "Moon Dawg", "The Shift", "Ten Little Indians", "Chug A Lug", "Surfin Safari", and "Little Miss America". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysThat's Why God Made The Radio ... CD
Capitol, 2012. Used ... $1.99
A surprisingly great comeback for The Beach Boys – working here with Brian Wilson at the production helm, in a mode that really recalls the glory of the group's post-Pet Sounds years! We'll be honest that we were initially cringing at the title – and expected the worst – but there's a compelling, charming quality here that comes not just from the group's well-crafted harmonies, or the sensitive and careful production – but also from the fact that these guys have aged a heck of a lot, and seem to bring a sense of humanity to the music they wouldn't have had before! It's almost like that early 20s moment when the Boys were starting to grow up and bringing a new sense of pain to their previous teen lyrics – but recast here in a post-middle age mode that's even more human and honest – yet somehow still served up with all the sweetness that's always made the group great! It's that mix of sweet sounds and bittersweet undercurrents that really makes the album shine – a balance that even Brian Wilson never managed to capture this well in some of his own solo projects over the past few decades. So our hat's off to the group (showing the same bald spot that most of them have too) – thanks for a nice album that includes the cuts "Shelter", "The Private Life Of Bill & Sue", "Think About The Days", "Isn't It The Time", "Pacific Coast Highway", "Summer's Gone", and "From There To Back Again".

Melodic psychedelic rock from Boston's Beacon Street Union – one of a pair of great records the group cut for MGM in the late 60s!

Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being.

Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".

Capitol, Early 60s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold ... $39.99 59.98
Just when you thought your Beatles collection couldn't get any bigger – out comes this amazing set with 37 tracks that have never been released before! As you might guess from the cover image, the focus here is on the early years of the Fab Four – and the package features rare BBC performances from 1962 to 1965 – offering up a much more vivid portrait of the initial years of The Beatles than just their studio albums. There's plenty of unique takes on famous tunes, plus some killer covers, and a few unusual entries too – and the package also features a number of spoken passages, with all the charm we've come to expect from the group in their press and film appearances of the time. Titles include "Beautiful Dreamer", "I'm Talking About You", "Glad All Over", "Lucille", "Anna", "Lend Me Your Comb", "Devil In Her Heart", "Sure To Fall", "Twist & Shout", "I'll Follow The Sun", "There's A Place", "From Me To You", "Happy Birthday Dear Saturday Club", "Memphis Tennessee", "Misery", "The Hippy Hippy Shake", and "I Got A Woman" – plus bonus interview tracks with each member too!

A great little record that's kind of a prequel for Rubber Soul – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that we always forget about, until we drop the needle – the revel in its sweet blend of Beatles modes on tracks that include "Help", "The Night Before", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Yesterday", "Act Naturally", "It's Only Love", "Ticket To Ride", and "I Need You".

A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together! There's great hints here of the solo work to come – especially from George Harrison and John Lennon – and the Phil Spector production really helps open up a new sound for the group. Includes the genius cuts "I Dig A Pony", "Two Of Us", "Across The Universe", "I Me Mine", "One After 909", "For You Blue", and "Let It Be". CD

Think you know the Bee Gees? Then think again – because this wonderful package features three of their ultra-rare albums from Australia – reissued here for the first time, and quite different the later sides we love so much! The Bee Gees didn't just arise to the charts in the disco generation – nor were they the brainchild of late 60s Atlantic Records – and instead they were an incredibly hard-working trio who got a very young start in their own scene – where the young Barry Gibb was already a hell of a talented songsmith, and provided the group with great material from their very first record. These albums don't just illustrated a group in progress – or an act waiting to grow – because honestly, if the Bee Gees never cut anything else, these records might well be enough – as you could say if you chopped off The Beatles' output right before Rubber Soul. Production is wonderful – no beat group cliches, nor American pop psych ripoffs – and the trio have already found the perfect space for their really unique harmonies. The set features three full albums with all original album sleeves – Spicks & Specks, Turn Around Look At Us, and The Bee Gees Sing & Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs – a total of 38 delightful 60s tunes!

Early Bee Gees at their best – springing forth into the world of pop with a sound that's completely their own – and which grabs us right from the very first note on classic albums like this! The vocals are full, flowery, and sung in a style that's completely sublime – backed by a brilliant blend of simple acoustic elements and some fuller, ambitious arrangements that really make the whole thing soar – partly psych, fully pop, and put together with a thoughtfulness that's still compelling so many decades later!

Warner (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderful lost work from The Bee Gees – some surprisingly wonderful Australian recordings, made in the few years before their American debut! The vocal strengths of the group are already firmly in place – those amazing harmonies with a quality that's unlike any other act we can think of – rising together on these beautiful little tunes that have a simplicity that's really a nice contrast to later years – which lets us focus on the vocals even more! Some moments are nice and raw, too – with sharper guitars and tighter drums that almost echo the coming psych and garage sounds of the US – but mixed with the trio's voices in this really great way. If you've only ever heard early Bee Gees on Atco, you'll find a heck of a lot to love here – on a set of 24 tracks that includes "The Storm", "Spicks & Specks", "I Am The World", "I Want Home", "Butterfly", "Jingle Jangle", "Playdown", "Second Hand People", "And The Children Laughing", "Wine & Women", "Coalman", "How Many Birds", and "Top Hat".

Tripped out electronics meet progressive rock jamming – all in a weird and wonderful film score from the early 70s! The record's one of the best by French experimentalist Philippe Besombes from the time – and it's got a style that sort of starts in the territory of Francois De Roubaix similar electronic work for film – but gets a lot darker and noisier right away! There's a textural depth here that's really great – almost a pre-industrial music exploration of sounds – but the work's also not that over-indulgent, either – and Besombes always has a great way of getting back to a tune, especially on the shorter tracks. Titles include "La Plage", "Rugby", "Ceremonie", "Hache 06", "La Ville", "Les Cosmonautes", "Tis A Song", "Boogimmick", and "PJF 261". LP, Vinyl record album

New Big Star#1 Record ... CD
Ardent/Stax, 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The amazing first album from Big Star – a set that came out of nowhere, made hardly a ripple on the charts, yet went onto crash in big waves of sound for generations to come! The style here is unlike thing else before – hardly what you'd expect from the group's Memphis roots or Alex Chilton's previous performances – yet the group's music has become a generation-defining sound in the way it blends southern inflections with harder rock influences, and a lean, gritty quality that's arguably in a late 70s space between punk and power pop. Every element is wonderful – guitars that are powerful, but never indulgent – vocals that are moving, but never overly emotive – and a balance between sensitive and searing moments that even The Replacements could never hope to match. A landmark all the way through – with tracks that include "Feel", "Ballad Of El Goodo", "In The Street", "The India Song", "When My Baby's Beside Me", "Give Me Another Chance", "Don't Lie To Me", "Thirteen", "Watch The Sunrise", and "Try Again".

This sublime second set from Big Star is even leaner and more focused than the first – a record that has the group losing Chris Bell, yet still retaining a lot of his influence – while the main focus moves over to Alex Chilton, whose ability to sing and write is simply mindblowing!

There's no easy labels, no easy terms you could ever hope to ascribe to the record – and that's fine, because it stands majestically well on its own.

Heavy drums and a good dose of soul – both of which make Black Pearl stand out a bit from many of their late 60s contemporaries! There's a definite bluesy undercurrent to the group's music, but the riffs are also pretty hard and fast too – almost a bit funky at times, and delivered with a starker sort of groove than the usual blues rock combo. The musicianship is super tight throughout – really at a superstar level, but without sounding slick or commercial – and the album alone is worth it for the sharp drums and guitar leads, but also sports some pretty great vocals too – with almost a garagey soul sort of feel. Titles include "White Devil", "Mr Soul Satisfaction", "Thinkin Bout The Good Times", "Crazy Chicken", "Forget It", "Climbing Up The Walls", "Reach Up", "Bent Over", and "Endless Journey".

A country rock session from JD Blackfoot – but one with a hipper edge than most! Side one features some more mainstream-styled tunes that fit nicely with the down-homier side of the rock spectrum at the end of the 60s – but side two really trips things out nicely, and gets relatively psychedelic in its use of guitar, heavy drums, and vocals. Tracks on this side are nearly all originals by Blackfoot, and have a really dark quality to them – one that's stark, spare, and really stands out from the rest of the record. And heck, if the whole thing sounded as great as side two, we'd almost imagine that the album would have ended up being a much bigger classic than the obscurity it's turned out to be!

One of the first albums from Blue Mink – a seminal rock/soul crossover act who really broke bigger in the 70s! The album's strongest asset is singer Madeline Bell, who works in duet form with group leader Roger Cook on most numbers – bringing the record a strongly soulful component that really helps sell some of its beat group leanings. And in the instrumentation department, the group here have plenty of touches from the late 60s Brit beat scene – including strong presence of organ and electric piano, lots of jamming guitar, and an overall approach to the groove that's strongly influenced by American soul and R&B, but which also has jazzy touches. Titles include "Good Morning Freedom", "Gimme Reggae", "Can You Feel It Baby", "Our World", "Sweet & Sour", "I Lose The Game", and "Silk What?". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing second chapter for The Music Machine – working here with the last name of leader Sean Bonniwell in their name – in a groove that's even weirder and wilder than before! The group take on an odd new sound here – still the heady brew of fuzz and Hammond on their original garagey recordings from LA – but with a mode that also really lets Bonniwell's offbeat character come to the forefront – both in the odd lyrics, and his stark presentation in the lead – a Sunset Strip sense of personality that's almost up there with Kim Fowley at times! The record's definitely one of the weirder, more edgey sides cut for Warner Brothers in the mid 60s – and titles include "Astrologically Incompatible", "Double Yellow Line", "The Trap", "Soul Love", "Bottom Of The Soul", "Me Myself & I", and "The Eagle Never Hunts The Fly".

David Bowie's grabbing the cover of Heroes for this surprisingly great album – using the old cover art, then marking it over – in ways that definitely give a hint at the sound underneath! The style's darker and edgier than we've heard Bowie in years – kind of in "Joe The Lion" territory at times – given the fuzzy use of guitar, and raspy touches on the vocals and other instrumentation – almost as if the whole thing's got the same sort of back to basics approach that David found during his years in Berlin. Yet overall, there's more sweet moments too – some surprisingly warm tunes that, while not like contemporary pop hits, may well help remind the world that the Bowie star can still shine brightly in the right setting. Titles include "Dirty Boys", "The Next Day", "If You Can See Me", "Boss Of Me", "Dancing Out In Space", "Love Is Lost", and "Valentines Day".

RCA, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
A key blend of two chapters in David Bowie's career – his guitar-heavy groove with the Spiders From Mars, and his 60s roots in mod London! The tracks here all date from the mid 60s, and are Bowie's homage to that period in his life – but they're all played with a glammish 70s sensibility, and some definite Ziggy Stardust elements in the way the guitars come into the mix. Given Bowie's rise as a key songwriter of his time, the step back to an album of all covers is a surprising, but genius move – and the execution of the tunes here comes off brilliantly – with plenty of personal spirit that keeps them from being simple rehashes of hits! Tracks include "See Emily Play", "Friday On My Mind", "I Can't Explain", "Everything's Alright", "Don't Bring Me Down", "Shapes Of Things", and "Here Comes The Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Virgin, 1969. Used ... $5.99
An amazing departure for David Bowie – hardly the kind of record you would expect from his oboe-filled tunes of a few years before – and really the start of the groundbreaking, earthshaking, reinventionist era of his genius! There's a spacious, soaring quality to Space Oddity that's every bit the kind of magical music you might hope for in a set recorded at the close of the 60s – a shift into new modes, new sounds that seem to suck up all the best influences in rock from the previous few years, but fuse it into a new cosmic vision for the next decade. And while others might stumble on cliche with the weight of such a task, Bowie pulls it off brilliantly – mixing his fuzzier feelings with some of his more personal leanings – and showcasing a newly deep sense of songwriting here that's really amazing. Some tunes have the sensitivity of work on Hunky Dory, while others burn with the fire of Man Who Sold The World – all in a balance that never sounds schizophrenic at all. Titles include"Space Oddity", "Memory Of A Free Festival", "God Knows I'm Good", "Cygnet Committee", and "Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dazed". CD

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 Low years – presented here with some darker orchestrations that sound really wonderful, and which slightly recast the styles of the tunes on the albums. The second half mixes in some older classics with a few surprising bits – making for the kind of "star appeal" that must have been welcome to more mainstream Bowie fans during these more obscure years. 17 tracks in all – including "Beauty & The Beast", "Breaking Glass", "Speed Of Life", "What In The World", "Heroes", "Warszawa", "Soul Love", "Star", "Art Decade","Fame", "TVC 15", and "Ziggy Stardust".

Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work of the 70s – and represented a crucial moment when his groundbreaking music also found a large mainstream audience as well. And despite the fact that Ziggy's an androgynous space rocker with a spurious pedigree, the manufactured posturing of the album's come to be taken quite literally over the years – a vivid text of alienation, expression, and redemption – served up beautifully over a host of classic tracks that include "Five Years", "Soul Love", "Moonage Daydream", "Suffragette City", and "Ziggy Stardust" – all further proof of Bowie's 70s ability to slide in wherever he wanted with ease!

There's a subtle genius here, but one that grabs you right away – given Walsh's distinct vocals, and the album's blend of jangle pop guitars with sadder elements like cello and flugelhorn, which help push things slightly towards 4AD territory, but without any goth. The whole thing's wonderful – one of those records we've loved for decades, from the moment we first heard it – and titles include "Sunset Hotel", "Mr Somewhere", "All The Birthdays", "Great Fool", "Speechless With Tuesday", "Cannot Tell The Days Apart", and "Lazarus Lazarus".

Aphrodite's Child666 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vertigo/Universal (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 1, 2014
One of the coolest rock concept albums ever – and arguably the crowning moment for Aphrodite's Child – an incredibly hip Greek group from the early 70s – featuring a young Demis Roussos on vocals, and Vangelis Papathanassiou on organ, piano, vibes, flute, and a lot of other instrumentation! Vangelis composed the whole set – as an extended piece based on the Apocalypse of St John – and the album was recorded in Paris, away from their native Greece – in a time of political unrest and cultural upheaval that's clearly referenced in the music! There's a really wide array of textures and moods on the set – from sinister to soft, freaky to peaceful, all laid out beautifully with a sense of poetry and power that few other groups could match! Irene Pappas performs a recitation, and also gives some sexy sounds on the classic "Infinity" – and other tunes include "The System", "Babylon", "Loud Loud Loud", "The Four Horsemen", "The Seventh Seal", "Aegian Sea", "The Marching Beast", "Capture Of The Beast", "Altamont", "Seven Trumpets", and "Hic Et Nunc".

BandidoBandido (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Barnyard (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 10, 2014
A killer funky rock group from early 70s Mexico – one that plays with some sweet jazzy touches too! The sound here is a bit like the jazz rock of the US and UK scenes – with soulful lyrics that really find a nice home amidst the jamming guitars, brassy horns, and funky rhythms at the bottom! And in fact, there's a familiarity to some of the tunes – a groove that makes you say "dang, where have I heard this one before" – but only because the quality level of the album's so high, these cuts should have been bigger on the global scene! Titles include the groovy "Pobre Ecologo", which has some nice organ – plus "Libertad Ahora", "Dama De Invierno", "Un Nuevo Dia", "Manana", and "Exhortacion". LP, Vinyl record album

BeatlesHard Day's Night (180 gram vinyl – mono) ... LP
EMI/Apple, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 9, 2014
Quite different than the original US release of this classic soundtrack – as this UK lineup features a lot more songs – a side one's worth of gems from the film, and side two featuring additional new tracks from Lennon & McCartney! Movie tunes include "If I Fell", "Hard Day's Night", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Tell Me Why", "I Should Have Known Better", and "And I Love Her" – and other tracks include "You Can't Do That", "Any Time At All", "Things We Said Today", and "I'll Cry Instead".

BeatlesHelp (180 gram vinyl – mono) ... LP
Parlophone/Apple, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 9, 2014
A great little record that's kind of a prequel for Rubber Soul – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that we always forget about, until we drop the needle – the revel in its sweet blend of Beatles modes on tracks that include "Help", "The Night Before", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Yesterday", "Act Naturally", "It's Only Love", "Ticket To Ride", and "I Need You". Original 14 track UK lineup – much different than the American release! LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 9, 2014
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess! The set's incredibly strong throughout – filled with some of the new post-Peppers ideas explored by the group, yet also with some catchier numbers too – great sing-songy tracks that undoubtedly were a big mainstream influence to the world of late 60s psych! Titles include "Blue Jay Way", "The Fool On The Hill", "Flying", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Penny Lane", and "Baby You're A Rich Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades! Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "She's Leaving Home", "Lovely Rita", "When I'm Sixty Four", "A Day In The Life", and "Fixing A Hole".

New AssociationBirthday ... CD
Warner/Cherry Red (UK), 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 guess from titles like "The Bus Song", "Birthday Morning", "Barefoot Gentleman", "Toymaker", and "Rose Petals, Incense, & A Kitten"!

New Syd BarrettBarrett (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Harvest/Parlophone, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A sublime second solo effort from Syd Barrett – and maybe his most perfectly-formed album ever! There's a sinister balance to the record right from the start – a gentle approach to the offbeat themes that is almost more unsettling than if the matter was undertaken more forcefully – weird little bits just tossed off by Syd as if they're really the ramblings of the madman promised on the cover of his first LP – almost with a deadpan quality that makes the whole thing even more unsettling with repeated listenings! Instrumentation is relatively lean – almost a folksy mix of acoustic guitar, electric, sullen bass, and some haunting keyboards – all as if someone picked apart Pink Floyd, then started to construct a rough sketch from the parts that lay scattered on the floor. The album's had an influence from psych through punk and many years beyond – and titles include "Baby Lemonade", "Gigolo Aunt", "Wolfpack", "Effervescing Elephant", "Winde & Dined", "Rats", and "It Is Obvious".

New David BowieLodger ... LP
RCA, 1979. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever! Titles include "Red Sails", "Look Back In Anger", "Repetition", "Boys Keep Swinging", "Red Money", "Yassassin", and "DJ". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousTwistin Rumble Volume 10 – The Swinginest Dance Party Ever ... LP
Twistin Rumble, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of twang, plenty of raunch, and plenty of weird and wild singles from the underground scene of the late 50s and early 60s! The cuts here are all from really tiny labels, and show why digging through mountains of 45s can always be a hell of a lot of fun – as you're always able to come up with really offbeat little gems like this – the kind of strange tracks that really fit the image on the cover! Music is a mix of R&B, early soul, and raw guitar rockers – and titles include "Sawmill" by The Admirals, "Slick Chick" by Vernon Harrel, "Two Tacos" by Felix Garcia, "Don't" by LB Wilson, "Let's Get One" by The Imperialites, "Lolo Baby" by The Medallions, "Hully Gully All Night Long" by The Peridots, "The Pig" by Ludaway, and "The Duck" by Earl Forest.
