New VariousButtons – Starter Kit (aka Yellow Pills) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
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.

New VariousChinese Rocks – 60's Garage, Surf, Trash Rock & Roll A Go Go From Southeast Asia ... LP
Outhouse, 1960s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Not Chinese Rocks, ala Johnny Thunders – but a cool collection of Southeast Asian rock from the 60s – lots of jangle pop and garagey numbers that definitely owe a lot to the Anglo world of the time! Many of the lyrics are in English, and some of the tunes are covers – but these versions are definitely unusual ones – and really stand out with some of the rougher edges and odd instrumental twists – especially given that some of the best tracks on the set are instrumentals! There's plenty of fuzzy guitar, and most numbers sound a lot like more familiar Japanese takes on rock styles of the time – with titles that include "Steps Theme" by The Steps, "I Love A Go Go" by Shao Fong Fong, "Midnight Express" by The Fabulous Falcons, "Lies" by The Hi-Fi Twins & The Kings, "Bombora" by Blue Lake Combo, "Call My Name" by The Thunderbirds, "Shakin All Over" by Johnny Tan, and "Hey Girl" by The Siglap 5.

Tandyn AlmerAlong Comes Tandyn (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold .... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of unreleased material by mid-to-late 60s psych pop songwriter genius Tandyn Almer – who's probably best know for penning the eternally great "Along Comes Mary" for The Association – but we sure didn't know how great of a performer he was on his own! The 15 track record was cut for his publisher Davon Music, who circulated it to insiders at the time, looking to sell the songs – but what they should have done was found a label and released it. Fuzzy guitars, raw drums and great keyboards, excellent background harmonies – and the good-natured, melodic quality that attracted groups like the Association to Tandyn! Sundazed has long been a favorite source of rewarding 60s and 70s reissues, but they really deserve some bigger love for releases like this one – which is a first-ever commercial release. It feels like a complete, finished production for the most part – and not at all like a bunch of demos. Psych pop greatness! Includes "Find Yourself", You Turn Me Around", "Anything You Want", "About Where Love Is", "Face Down In The Mud", "I Get High", "Bring Your Own Self Down" (by The Purple Gang)", "Where Will They Go", "Sunset Strip Soliloquy" and more.

Amboy DukesJourney To The Center Of The Mind ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. Very Good .... $11.99
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 freak out nicely in this set of psyche-heavy sounds from the Mainstream label at the height of their late 60s greatness. Side one features a number of shorter Nugent-penned tunes, and side two is a slightly more complicated offering – a bit of a concept piece, with tracks that form a story over the side of the record. Titles include "Flight Of The Byrd", "Mississippi Murderer", "Dr Slingshot", "Scottish Tea", "I'll Prove I'm Right", "Conclusion", "Why Is A Carrot More Orange Than An Orange", and "Ivory Castles".

Titles include "Promise Him Anything", "Beach Party", "Treat Him Nicely", "Battle Of San Onofre", "Surfin Luau", "Pineapple Princess", "Swingin & Surfin", and "California Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

AnonymousInside The Shadow ... CD
Machu Pichu, 1976. New Copy .... $11.99
The one-and-only record by Anonymous – a mid 70s Indianapolis group who only ever pressed up a few hundred copies – and now it's one of best and most desired private press gems of its time! It's got a great sound that bears the influences of some of the great California combos of the period – think The Byrds and Crosby Stills Nash & Young – with great lead and harmony vocals and brilliant acoustic guitar work. What's most remarkable is that their songs and performances live up to those groups – it really seems like the only thing that held them back was the lack of a big production budget, promotion and distribution. Talent-wise, they have the goods! A really solid, timeless set. Includes "Who's Been Foolin'?", "J Rider", "Up To You", "Shadow Lay", "Pick Up And Run", "We Got More", "Sweet Lilac" and "Baby Come Risin'". This first ever licensed re-release feature liner notes by Aaron Milenski of Acid Archives. CD

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

Greg AshleyAnother Generation Of Slaves ... CD
Trouble In Mind, 2014. New Copy Gatefold .... $6.99
A pretty amazing record from this Texas up-and-comer – an artist who's got this way of bridging past and present, folk and rock, all with a timeless sensibility that could make this album at home in just about any record collection! The tunes are simple and stark, but have this really compelling vibe – almost that quality of Nikki Sudden in the mid 80s, when he really started writing some of his best material – the kinds of tunes that might have been mainstream classics from the album generation of the previous decade, but which were lost among the less-sensitive ears of the post-punk and indie crowd. The instrumentation is less jazz than you'd expect from the clarinet pictured on the cover – but that instrument does fit in the small combo sounds, alongside trumpet, piano, vibes, and Ashley's own guitar and bass – in ways that do occasionally have some jazzy colors next to more rootsy phrasing. Titles include "Misery Again", "East Texas Plain", "Brother Raymond", "Awkward Affections", "Bruises", and "Medication #7". CD

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"!

AssociationComplete Warner Bros & Valiant Singles Collection ... CD
Warner/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD .... $19.99
Mindblowing music from The Association – a heady double-length package that features every single the group ever cut for the Valiant and Warner Brothers label – which together make for an amazing evolution in sound! Although best remembered for their few soft rock hits, The Association were a hell of a group who never stopped growing back in the 60s – from sublime folksy harmonies at the start, to more complicated baroque pop as years went on, to some psych elements, and even a return to rootsier sounds they never had in the first place – always delivered with qualities that were head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries – and perfectly put together in the best LA studio styles, with help from giants like Curt Boettcher, Gary Paxton, Bones Howe, and others. The group also became quite skilled in the studio themselves – as you'll hear in the book's copious notes and comments from members themselves – all a perfect package for a set that features 37 mighty tunes that include "Six Man Band", "Goodbye Columbus", "Like Always", "No Fair At All", "Standing Still", "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies", "Looking Glass", "Birthday Morning", "Makes Me Cry", "PF Sloan", "Just About The Same", "Traveler's Guide", "I Am Up For Europe", "Hear In Here",a nd "Forty Times" – not to mention some bigger hits!

AthanorFlashback ... CD
Guerssen (Spain), 1970s. New Copy .... $16.99
A brilliant, first-time collection of the few rare singles ever recorded by north suburban Chicago psych folk group Athanor – plus some previously unreleased songs that are just as solid – and it might be our favorite rare rock discovery yet from the great Guerssen label! Most of the songs were recorded in the early 70s, and blend late 60s sunny psych and Brit Invasion inspired vocals, with a tighter melodic sensibility that pre-figures the power pop of underground heroes like The Shoes. The vocals are sweet and the songs are excellent, but they're also incredible musicians – with some great 12-string guitar, keyboards and effects in the mix that give it a unique edge, but don't bury the tunefuless one bit. We're not gushing over it because they're unsung hometown geniuses, either – this really, really good stuff! Includes "Graveyard", Inner Space", "Urizen", "I Don't Mind", "Habits", "Read Me", "Rock Me, Roll Me", "Hidden Monsters", "Wonder Why I'm Sick", "Like A River Flows" and more. CD

AvengersAvengers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
4 Men With Beards, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99 18.99
The incendiary full length by The Avengers – their almighty, unjustly overlooked self-titled set (aka the Pink Album)! This is one of our absolute favorite Bay Area punk albums of any era – recorded in '77 and '78, but it went unreleased until 1983. We have no doubt that if this thing came out properly in '78 and got any kind of distribution, The Avengers could have built a massive legend – similar to the way X busted out of LA – and conquered punk fans the world over. Righteous, rage-filled, fearless and catchy – with one of great punk frontwomen in Penelope Houston. Do not dismiss this as just another 70s punk album. It's a masterpiece! Includes "We Are The One", "Car Crash", "No Martyr", "Desperation", "The Amerikan In Me", "Second To None", "Corpus Christi", "Uh-Oh" and more. 14 on all. LP, Vinyl record album

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

Baker lived and worked in Nigeria as far back as the early 70s, as famously documented in the classic Fela/Ginger Baker Live set from 1971 – and the friends found themselves together in Germany for this 1978 recording, with players including members of the Anikulapo Kuti family, Leke Benson, Nwokoma Ikem and others.

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".

Richard BarnesTake To The Mountains ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $12.99
Gorgeous pop from British singer Richard Barnes – a vocalist who'd previously worked in the harmony group Quiet Five, but who steps out here as a much more mature singer on his own! The backings are often lush and full, a bit in the Scott Walker mode of the time, but without as much overdone emotion – and Barnes brings a nicely subtle sense of drama to the proceedings, especially pumping up some of the better tunes here from other composers. CD features all the work from Barnes' full solo album in 1971, plus other tracks from singles – a total of 20 titles that includes "Take To The Mountains", "Woman Woman", "The Way I Feel", "Take My Hand For Awhile", "Mama", "It's Getting Better", "Homeward Bound", "Live Till You Die", "Maybe", "Tomorrow Never Comes", and "Could We Start Again Please".

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 polished than on other records, and instrumentation that's heavy on acoustic guitar and percussion – almost like the group are hanging out at the beach, riffing on some of their favorite tunes. The album features the group's famous take on "Barbara Ann" – plus versions of a number of other 60s classics, like "The Times They Are A Changin", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "Mountain Of Love", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "Devoted To You", "Alley Oop", and "I Should Have Known Better".

An insanely big batch of Beach Boys rarities – a set that features 60 previously unreleased tracks, in a bundle that includes 174 titles in all – packaged in an ultra-cool puffy-covered book! The book's style is meant to replicate a high school yearbook from the old days – a format that's quite fitting for the package, given that the collection documents the group's 50 years in music – with photos, archive material, yearbook-like inscriptions from the group members, and even a copy of Brian Wilson's handwritten high school essay "My Philosophy"! Most other tracks are unusual versions, different mixes, session tracks, alternates, and even lots of live material too – and the set's a true treasure for diehard fans like us – who often love the group most the farthest we get away from the hits. Unreleased tracks include "This Whole World (acapella)", "I Can Hear Music (live Maryland 1975)", "Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love", "You're Still A Mystery", "Goin To The Beach", "Sail Plane Song (2012 stereo mix)", "Amusement Parks USA (early version)", "I Get Around (mono with session intro)", "Surfers Rule (with session intro)", "It's Over Now (alt)", "Brian's Back (alt)", "Hushabye (BBC 1964", "California Feelin (demo)", "California Girls (lei'd in Hawaii version)", "Surf's Up (1967 version)", "Guess I'm Dumb (instrumental w/background vocals)", "It's About Time (live Chicago 1973)", "Runaway (live Chicago 1965 with concert promo intro)", "The Letter (Hawaii 1967 rehearsal)", "Wild Honey (live New Jersey 1972), "Home Recordings/Surfin Rehearsal Highlights", and plenty plenty more.

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.

Beach BoysThat's Why God Made The Radio ... CD
Capitol, 2012. Used .... $6.99
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".

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!

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". CD

Beau BrummelsIntroducing The Beau Brummels ... CD
Autumn/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy .... $14.99
The first full album from The Beau Brummels – an early Autumn Records effort before their headier days at Warner – cut with a style that could well make the group a key force to stop the British Invasion of the 60s! There's a great sense of jangle-pop throughout – a slight twang that would later unfold in different ways in Bradley's Barn, but which here works to give the tunes this little sense of sadness amidst the warmer melodies – which themselves are particularly great, and much better-crafted than some of the other US groups of this nature at the time. The boys definitely borrow a bit from The Beatles (including a name that gave them placement right next to the fab four in the record racks) – but maybe they're also drawing on some of the folk harmony groups from the SF scene they called home, too. Titles include "Laugh Laugh", "Just A Little", "Oh Lonesome Me", "They'll Make You Cry", "Stick Like Glue", "Not Too Long Ago", and "I Want More Loving". Special bonus – the back cover features some wonderful early Warner prose by Stan Cornwyn! CD

New BeckMorning Phase (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Capitol, 2014. New Copy .... $22.99 24.98
The first proper album from Beck in a few years – following some solid production work for Charlotte Gainsbourg and others – and bit of a return to the quiet singer-songwriter style of his classic Sea Change! Morning Phase finds Beck mixing up subtle, spacey sounds with acoustic guitar and straight forward songcraft – and perhaps ultimately not quite as melancholic as Sea Change. Again, he's delivered a timeless, distinctive piece of work. Includes "Cycle", "Morning", "Heart Is A Drum", "Say Goodbye", "Blue Moon", "Unforgiven", "Wave", "Don't Let It Go", "Blackbird Chain", "Phase", "Turn Away", "Country Down", "Waking Light".

Big Star#1 Record/Radio City ... CD
Ardent/Fantasy, 1972/1973. Used .... $4.99
The 2 great albums by Big Star – back-to-back on CD! #1 Record is simply one of the best rock albums of the 70s – partly remembered as a defining moment in power pop, but to us there's a depth of emotion here that goes way beyond chords and choruses, and sinks into our very souls every time we listen to it! Indespensible Memphis rock, to say the very least. Titles include "Feel", "Ballad Of El Goodo", "In The Street", "The India Song", "When My Baby's Beside Me", "Give Me Another Chance", "Watch The Sunrise" and more. Radio City is also one of 70s rock's finest moments. With Chris Bell out of the picture, one could successfully argue the traits that it lacks from the first album, but this thing stands up as work of genius all its own – twith a raw, shambling immediacy to the songs that cut incredibly deep. Amazing stuff all around – totally indispensable! Titles include "O My Soul", "Life Is White", "Way Out West", "You Get What You Deserve", "Mod Lang", "She's A Mover", "Morpha Too", "I'm In Love With A Girl". CD

Jean Jacques Birge & Francis GorgeDefense De (180 gram pressing – with DVD) ... LP
GRRR Records/Fauni Gena (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue).... $29.99
Some of the most incredible electric work we've heard from the 70s French scene – and a really unique little record that's somewhere between the avant compositional world of Varese and Stockhausen, and lots of the later industrial experiments in years to come! The duo play a range of cool keyboards – which seem heavily processed at some points, especially the noisy ones – most likely through primitive use of tape loops and feedback. Other moments are slightly tuneful, but still pretty abstract – and other instrumentation includes bits of alto sax, flute, guitar, and cello. Titles include "Le Reveil", "Pourrait Etre Brutal", "Crever", and "La Bulle Opprimante". LP, Vinyl record album

Luv N' Haight, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99 10.98
Raw punky electro funk from the LA scene of the late 70s – a single that definitely lives up to the image on the label! "Down At The Laundromat" is a dubby funk cut that is nicely tripped out – almost like one of those nuggets you'd find buried on side four of Sandanista, but maybe even a bit rougher overall! "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" seems to be a cover of the James Brown classic – but it's played at a much faster pace, with frenetic guitars and keyboards – and this offbeat sax line that makes us feel like James Chance has suddenly gotten totally funky! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Strawberry Rain, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $24.99
A sweet folksy trio with a very personal feel – singing here on a set that was recorded in a Canadian basement in the early 70s, and hardly ever circulated at all! Yet the sound of the trio is anything but basement-like – very thoughtful, and with this amazing blend of melody and melancholy that almost recalls late work by The Beau Brummels at times, especially in the way the acoustic lines seem perfectly cast out of a small cycle of notes – then resonate with even more meaning once the lyrics come into the mix. Although only pressed initially as a hundred-copy run, this is one of those records that definitely should have put these guys on the map, had the group stayed together long enough – a perfect preservation of all the right elements of post-folk rock that were being sanded down in so many other corners by this point. Titles include "The Old Man", "Roads", "Lingering Dreams", "Spring Rain", "Nova Scotia Morning", and "Hooked On You". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $3.99
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 vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

Columbia/Wounded Bird, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $11.99 12.98
A sweet sweet selection of work from Blood Sweat & Tears – and one we love especially because it features their incredible instrumental work for the film The Owl & The Pussycat! The CD offers up a whopping 15 tracks from the film, all instrumentals that have this totally great sound that's unlike anything the group ever did vocally – much more laidback, jazzy, and with lots of sweet Hammond in the mix – often bubbling next to some funky backings, and topped with some great solos on trumpet or tenor too! These cuts are really wonderful – often hidden in the scenes in the film, and later buried next to dialogue bits on the soundtrack album – but presented here for the first time in all their instrumental glory – and showing a real blacksploitation funk side of the group. CD also features some rare mono singles – "Blues Part 2", "More & More", "And When I Die", and "Spinning Wheel" – plus the unreleased track "M", and the very cool "Krakbergravningen". CD

Powerful, fuzzed out, blues based fire at it's most forceful and exhilarating – ultimately setting the bar too high for the group, or altered versions of it, to ever again approach! Titles include their great cover of "Summertime Blues", plus "Doctor Please", "Out Of Focus", "Parchment Farm", "Second Time Around", and "All Night Long". LP, Vinyl record album

The second solo album by ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone – filled with amazing tracks that are perfect for his godlike voice! The production's a bit fuller than the string-quartet/piano sound of One Year – but the musicians still include most of Colin's old buddies from the Zombies, and Chris White and Rod Argent produced the album as well – coming up with some great inflections that really send home the gentle hooks of the album's tunes! Blunstone's vocals are as magnificent as always – breathily beautiful without sounding cheesy – which is a very fine distinction here, and one that keeps the album far from other adult pop of the time. Tracks include "I Don't Believe In Miracles", "How Wrong Can One Man Be", "Andorra", "Time's Running Out", and "How Could We Dare To Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing solo work from ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone – his first album after parting ways with his former group – and one of our favorite albums of all time! Blunstone's vocals were already amazing in The Zombies – especially near the end – but this set takes things even further, by blending his sublime lyrics with spare arrangements that often just feature simple string passages and warm piano parts – subtle accompaniment that leaves Colin strongly in the lead! The songs are wonderful – penned to recall the changes and issues of the year after the parting of the group – with plenty of help from old buddies Rod Argent and Chris White too. There's never been another record like this again, and there never will be – one of the true treasures of the greatest generation of music! Titles include "Let Me Come Closer To You", "I Can't Live Without You", "Smokey Day", and "Say You Don't Mind" – plus a fantastic cover of "Misty Roses", and the more rocking "She Loves The Way They Love Her".

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". CD features an insane 49 tracks in all – the full 14 track album, other Warner singles, and demos and rare material that includes solo tracks by Sean Bonniwell too! CD

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 bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) LP, Vinyl record album

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".

The album sparkles with the best sound of Luther's early work – and you'll hear more than a bit of Luther's work on his own, and his tunes with Gregg Diamond on the set. Features the sublime tracks "Win", "Fascination", "Right", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "Can You Hear Me" – as well as the hits "Young Americans" and "Fame". CD

The record that first made us fall in love with the music of Billy Bragg – a really unique set of tunes, especially for its time – music that's both personal and political, and delivered with just a voice and electric guitar! Billy's spare style was a stark contrast to the bolder modes of the punk and post-punk years – but it carried its own special power, too – as unfettered, Bragg is able to come across clearly and powerfully – at a level that really hammers home the strength and sentiment of his tunes. Titles include "To Have & Have Not", " A New England", "The Man In The Iron Mask", "Lovers Town Revisited", "The Milkman Of Human Kindness", and "The Busy Girl Buys Beauty".

There's a nice jangle to most of the guitar lines here – kind of that early Merseybeat mode that was so influenced by US work of a few years before, but starting to take things in a new direction too – especially once the singles here get into the few later years – and have a more complex approach to melody and rhythm. The set features Regents work led by Britten, plus some solo material under the name of Simon Raven – 27 titles that include "I'll Cry No More", "Money", "My Pride My Joy", "She's About A Mover", "Right Now", "Jailer Bring Me Water", "Don't Spread It Around", "Daily Situation", and "Empty Beaches Cobbled Streets & City Walls".

RCA/Real Gone, 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs .... $19.99 21.98
A trio of great late 60s RCA albums on a single set – the first two from The Brotherhood, and one more from the related Friend Sound! First up is the first album ever from The Brotherhood – an offshoot of Paul Revere & The Raiders, filled with some of that group's greatest early players! The core of the group features Drake Levin on guitar, Phil Volk on bass, and Mike Smith on drums – romping with the kind of raw, party-styled energy they brought to their work with their previous group – but at a level here that's way more heady, and definitely shows a stronger influence from psych! Tunes are still plenty catchy, but have some weird undercurrents too – in a cool Sunshine Pop sort of style – and the range of instrumentation is nicely fresh, and even a bit richer than usual for this sort of record. Titles include "Somebody", "Pastel Blue", "Close The Door", "Seasons", "Love For Free", "Lady Faire", and "Ice Cream". 1969's The Brotherhood is an even tighter set than the first album from the group – and one that has the group really finding a way to tap into their older garagey roots, while still keeping plenty of fuzz and psych intact! The drums are great – that powerful punch that Mike Smitty Smith always brought to his earlier pop work – but the themes are moodier, and the guitar nicely trippy, while still staying tight – sometimes with a bit more strut than we ever would have expected from these guys. The album features a few surprising covers – like "California Dreamin" and "Rose Garden" – plus nice original tracks "Deep Blue Sea", "Love Sketch", "Destination Unknown", and "Don't Let Go". But most amazing here is the Friend Sound album – an offshoot project recorded between the two Brotherhood albums – a wild batch of instrumental psychedelia – with plenty of avant garde touches thrown in! This is the sort of record that always restores our faith in major labels – and it makes us realize that no matter how many Elvis Presley albums RCA was selling in the 60s, there was also room to put out odd little record like this one. The enigmatic Friend Sound sound like a loose collective of hippie jazz musicians – playing flute, organ, guitars, percussion, piano, recorder, shovel (shovel?), finger cymbals, and just about anything else that seemed to be handy – and they had a style that was kind of like free-jamming jam band work – almost like the band and the engineers took a bucketful of drugs – so many that they got really mellow and dark – then went into the studio to cut a tripped-out album of instrumentals. The whole thing comes across with the same "anything goes" spirit of the NY 60s underground film scene – but with none of the silliness of bands like The Fugs – and it's that kind of energy that makes us love this one. Titles include "Childhood's End", "Lost Angel Proper St", and "The Empire Of Light". CD

New Brady BunchMeet The Brady Bunch ... CD
1972. New Copy .... Around June 18, 2014
One of several records the Brady Kids released in the early 70s – Meet The Brady Bunch finds the inescapable kitsch comedy kiddies tackling a pretty surprising collection of period hit singles! What's endearing about this particular album is that Paramount Records gives the impression that they wanted the Brady's to be taken seriously as musicians – with a title that begs a comparison to the Beatles, and head shots and a group photo elegant framed in B&W and soft color. Don't act like your not tempted! Tracks include "We'll Always Be Friends", "Day After Day", "Baby-I'm A Want You", "I Believe In You", "American Pie", "Me And You And A Dog Named Boo", "Ain't It Crazy", "We Can Make The World A Whole Lot Brighter" and more.

New Aksak MaboulOnze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine ... CD
Crammed (Belgium), 1977. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
An incredible record – unlike anything else we can think of, and one of those records that's had a fantastic life of its own in the past 25 years! The set was first recorded with production help from Marc Moulin in 1977, then released in 1981 as one of the first records on the legendary Crammed Discs label – and it's got a sound that blends together world music, electronics, jazz, and minimalism – in a true genre-busting mode that defies description! At one level, there's an artfulness here that's undeniable – but at another, the record has a spare, simple sense that's almost ethnographic – and the short tunes throughout ring out as a strange document of Europe between the cracks in the late 70s. Instrumentation includes saxes, Fender Rhodes, electronics, and a host of global percussion – and titles include "Mercredi Matin", "Animaux Velpeau", "Son Of L'Idiot", "Ciobane", "Comme On A Dit", "Mastoul Alakefak", "Vapona Not Glue", and "Fausto Coppi Arrive".

New Aksak MaboulUn Peu De L'Ame Des Bandits ... CD
Crammed (Belgium), 1979. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite mixing of modes from the old school – a tremendous second album from the legendary Aksak Maboul! The record mixes arty playfulness with some rootsier elements – bits of Eastern instrumentation, jazz, improvisation, and even some post-punk elements – all in a way that makes for one of the most creative recordings of its time – a set that easily provides key inspiration for more recent genre-crossing acts like this! There's a bit of Y or Ze Records whimsy at times – but the end result is much deeper, and much more compelling– as you'd expect from a group that features Fred Frith on guitar, Chris Cutler on drums, Marc Hollander and Michel Berkmans on reeds, and Denis Van Hecke on a range of cool cellos! Each tune has a slightly different flavor, but there's still a really unified feel to the record too – one of those European projects that comes together like nothing you'd hear from the US. Titles include "Geistige Nacht", "A Modern Lesson", "Palmiers En Pots", "Inoculating Rabies", "Cinema", and "Bosses De Crosses". CD

BoogarinsAs Plantas Que Curam (with download) ... LP
Other/Fat Possum, 2013. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Melodic psych fuzz grooves from Boogarins – hailing from Goiania, Brazil The group is primarily the duo of Fernando Ameida and Benke Ferraz – who are still in their late teens on this record, but they're clearly old souls – as they carry the spirit of the past 40 years of psychedelic guitar pop from Brazil and other Latin American regions. It's truly timeless stuff! We're obviously eternal lovers of Brazilian music at Dusty Groove, but we're not biased at all when it comes to the psych strains. We wouldn't stump for this so strongly if we weren't true believers. It's the real deal! Titles include "Lucifernandis", "Erre", "Infinu", "Despreocupar", "Hoje Aprendi De Verdade", "Fim", "Doce", "Eu Vou", "Cancao Perdida" and "Paul". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieNext Day (with bonus CD) ... LP
Columbia, 2013. Sealed .... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album
