Body Count (Ice T)Body Count ... LP
Sire/Warner, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Ice T & Body Count's infamous self-titled LP – way more notorious than it should be, and actually a pretty brave move for a rapper circa the early 80s, to roll from a major player in the hardcore solo rap scene – to hardcore punk/hybrid metal! It's fun stuff, seemingly influenced by Suicidal Tendencies (themselves pretty notorious back in the day) – with "Smoked Pork", "Now Sportss", "KKK B**ch", "There Goes The Neighborhood", "Evil Dick", "Body Count Anthem", "Oprah" and more.

Dead BoysWe Have Come For Your Children (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1978. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
Sire may have wiped the snot off their noses softly lit the background for the glammy b&w cover photo Dead Boys' second album – but that was only to hide the fact that We Have Come For Your Children is as raw, loud, and sarcastic as the first one! Bators, Chrome & Co are as boorishly N'yawk as possible (they busted up Rocket From The Tombs and ditched Cleveland for a reason, y'know), and the album provides a great studio document of the CBGB's scene at its nastiest. Tracks include "3rd Generation Nation", "I Won't Look Back", "I Don't Wanna Be No (Catholic Boy)", "Son Of Sam" (if this tune, written & recorded in '78 ain't punk, we don't know what the hell is!), "Ain't It Fun", "Dead And Alive", "Big City", "Callin' On You" and more.

New RamonesEnd Of The Century (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
The Roger Corman-Phil Spector year of the mighty Ramones! End Of The Century is a huge departure from the 1-2-3-4 burst and roar of the first 4 Ramones albums – a big ol' Phil Spector production – recorded concurrently with the filming of late 70s hottie PJ Soles dancing around in her underwear with a shy and shell-shocked Joey in Rock And Roll High School! Lord knows that End Of The Century was the end of the Ramones as we knew and loved them on LP (they remained great live until the very end), but it holds up very well and the big sound brings a smile. Plus it's got "Chinese Rock", worth the price alone. Other tracks include "Do You Remember Rock'N'Roll Radio?", "I'm Affected", "Danny Says", "The Return Of Jack & Judy", "Let's Go", "Baby, I Love You", "I Can't Make It On Time", "This Ain't Havana", "Rock N Roll High School", "All The Way" and "High Risk Insurance".

Sire, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
As great a rock & roll album as there's ever been! It's impossible to describe this record without sounding like a blow hard, but you really can't overstate what these four goony guys from Queens accomplished. 30-odd years of the most visceral pop music concentrated into 2 minute, 3 chord blasts of beautiful sonic catharsis – and they could barely even play. Thanks boys! Tracks include "Blitzkrieg Bop", "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", "Beat On The Brat", "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue", "I Don't Wanna Around With You", "Loudmouth", and "Today Your Love Tomorrow The World".

Alright, let's get this straight right now – the songs don't sound the same, they ARE the same and that's why we love them! If you found a way to concentrate 30 years of the best rock & roll into two and a half minutes of beautiful primal energy that still managed to qualify as ear candy, would you try to change things up?

SmithsMeat Is Murder ... CD
Rough Trade/Sire, 1985. Used ... $2.99
A stone classic from the team of Morrissey and Marr – a record that manages to wear its politics on its sleeve, yet still express things in a highly personal way! The balance is a key part of what made The Smiths go farther than just about all their 80s Brit indie contemporaries – and is what still keeps them going so many years later – not to mention great songwriting, haunting vocals, and some damn catchy guitar! Titles include "The Headmaster Ritual", "What She Said", "I Want The One I Can't Have", "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore", "Nowhere Fast", "Barbarism Begins At Home", and "Well I Wonder". CD

Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good ... $14.99
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)".

Sire/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A surprisingly solid, oft-overlooked end of the 70s set for Sire by Flamin' Groovies – their final effort for the label – and a hard-groovin' gem! Like their previous couple of classic records, this one was recorded in England, with Groovies guitarist Cyril Jordan co-producting, and it's a nice mix of rawly rocking originals and some cool cover versions – with "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", a cool, kinda shambling guitar rock takes on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves Of London" and Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and more.

Rough Trade/Sire, 1986. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A triumphant third album from The Smiths – one that really focuses the energy of their previous sets, and helps them find a new sort of sonic perfection! Those haunting guitars are still in all the right places – as are Morrissey's heartfelt lyrics – but there's also a nice balance here between humor and honesty, which may well make the album the most appealing Smiths set to our ears! Titles include "The Queen Is Dead", "Never Had No One Ever", "Vicar In A Tutu", "Cemetery Gates", "Frankly Mr Shankly", and "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others". CD

A huge one for Depeche Mode – an album that laid the ground work for pretty much all their big records to come!

Itt's a record that helped them further strengthen a devoted fan base that would grow exponentially in the years to come.

New Brian Eno & David ByrneMy Life In The Bush Of Ghosts ... LP
Sire, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking collaboration between Brian Eno & David Byrne – recorded with a spare, stripped down love of electronics and found sound samples – in a mode that would have a huge influence on countless records to come! Part of the set resonates with the quirky grooves found in Byrne's early Talking Heads records – but the overall sound is much more stark than that work, and is characterized by key found vocals and odd ethnic bits that really set the tone for each new tune. Eno's influence is felt strongly in the simplicity of the tracks, and in the darkly resonant production modes – that classic Eno touch used here before it became a bit too trademark, in a way that could still make a record like this sound great, even when coming from major label sources! A key force in shaping countless genres to come in the next 25 years – with great tracks that include "America Is Waiting", 'Regiment", "The Jezebel Spirit", "Qu'ran", "Moonlight In Glory", "A Secret Life", "Come With Us", and "Mountain Of Needles".

New Talking HeadsFear Of Music ... LP
Sire, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno's late 70s fascination with global rhythms – elements that are often used in spare, simple little ways to really help inflect the tunes with a playful imagination that goes way beyond the colder post-punk and new wave of most of their contemporaries! The balance of previous aesthetics with these new grooves is wonderful – heard to great effect on the classic club cut "I Zimbra" – but brewing up strongly underneath on gems that include "Mind", "Paper", "Cities", "Life During Wartime", "Memories Can't Wait", "Air", "Heaven", "Animals", "Electric Guitar", and "Drugs".

New Talking HeadsMore Songs About Buildings & Food ... LP
Sire, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early genius from the Talking Heads – a set that's got a much sparer sound than most of their later work, and a surprisingly groovy feel overall! The starkness of the group's debut is still very much in place – lots of tight interplay between bass and guitar – but the rhythms are also strongly pronounced too, and often get a bit funky at times – in ways that almost outdo most of the artier punk and funk that was to come in the next few years of the New York scene! Brian Eno produced the album with the group, and his sonic sensibilities really add a lot to the record – in ways that are much more subtle than his own 70s albums, but still a very big part of the set. Titles include "Thank You For Sending Me An Angel", "With Our Love", "The Good Thing", "Warning Sign", "The Girls Want To Be With The Girls", "Found A Job", "Artists Only", "I'm Not In Love", "Take Me To The River", "Stay Hungry", and "The Big Country".

New Talking HeadsRemain In Light ... LP
Sire, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most compelling grooves the Talking Heads ever recorded – a set that sparkles with imaginative touches, and railroads forward on a wave of complicated rhythms! The sound is brilliant throughout – a genre-less approach that sheds the group's earlier art nerd aesthetic for one that's clearly influenced by late 70s funk and club – but takes that influence in a whole new direction! The whole thing's even fresher than some of the artier downtown moments that bubbled around at the time – as David Byrne and the group actually managed to cross over big with the record – hitting not only urban markets, but also getting some play from the classic rock crowd too. Brian Eno produced, and co-wrote the songs with the group – and some great Green World-esque electronics bubble through the mix, and hold the whole thing together beautifully. Titles include "Houses In Motion", "Once In A Lifetime", "The Great Curve", "Crosseyed & Painless", "Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)", "Listening Wind", "Seen & Not Seen", and "The Overload".

The fun fun soundtrack to Rock 'N' Roll High School – that gloriously, knowingly trashy Roger Corman produced movie vehicle for the Ramones! Of course The Ramones are all over the soundtrack, but it's got a bunch of 70s new wave and hard rock from Devo, Eno, Nick Lowe, Todd Rundgren and more. Includes "Rock N Roll High School", "I Want You Around", a medley of "Blitzkrieg Bop", "Pinhead", "California Sun" and more by The Ramones, "Come Back Jonee" by Devo, "Energy Fools The Magician" by Eno, "So It Goes" by Nick Lowe, "School Days" by Chuck Berry, "School's Out" by Alice Cooper and more.

New Talking HeadsFear Of Music (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno's late 70s fascination with global rhythms – elements that are often used in spare, simple little ways to really help inflect the tunes with a playful imagination that goes way beyond the colder post-punk and new wave of most of their contemporaries! The balance of previous aesthetics with these new grooves is wonderful – heard to great effect on the classic club cut "I Zimbra" – but brewing up strongly underneath on gems that include "Mind", "Paper", "Cities", "Life During Wartime", "Memories Can't Wait", "Air", "Heaven", "Animals", "Electric Guitar", and "Drugs".

New Talking HeadsName Of This Band Is Talking Heads – Live 2 LP Set (1977 to 1979) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1982. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great early live set from The Talking Heads – a collection of recordings from the late 70s and early 80s, culled together in a format that almost makes the whole thing come across like a discreet live album! The versions of tunes here are changed up nicely from their studio counterparts – often coming across with some more acoustic touches, or a bit more intimacy on the best numbers – and sharing a spontaneity that we might not have expected from the group, had we only heard them in the studio. Titles on the original release include "New Felling", "A Clean Break", "Don't Worry About The Government", "Pulled Up", "Psycho Killer", "Artists Only", "Air", "Stay Hungry", "Building On Fire", "Memories (Can't Wait)", "Zimbra", "Houses In Motion", "Life During Wartime", "The Great Curve", and "Crosseyed And Painless".

Left BankeThere's Gonna Be A Storm – The Complete Recordings 1966-1969 ... CD
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... $12.99
Rarely has a compilation on an artist ever been done so well! This materful set compiles all of the rare recordings made by The Left Banke for Mercury during the late 60's – and it puts all 26 tracks together with a great set of notes that details the rocky history of the group. If you don't know The Left Banke, their unique style of "baroque rock" is a wonderful mix of groovy organ, electric harpsichord, and swirling strings – all set as instrumentation for some of the tightest, grooviest little songs you'll ever hear. Nearly every track on here is a toe-tapping hummer, and even if you know their big hits like "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina", you'll still find lots of other goodies like "Desiree", "Ivy Ivy", "Barterers & Their Wives", and "I Haven't Got The Nerve". Great stuff, and a CD that we're never without on a road trip! CD

New Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good ... $5.99
A tremendous album from Laura Nyro – a real return to the soulful style of her roots, thanks to help from Labelle on backing vocals, and the team of Gamble & Huff on production! If Nyro only ever gave the world this record, that would more than be enough – because the whole thing's an incredibly hip blend of her own great songwriting and some of the more righteous strands of American soul music at the time. Most of the tracks are older soul numbers – some done relatively straight, others done with the more personal, contemplative style you'd expect from Nyro during these years. And decades before Amy Winehouse or Joss Stone started hitting territory like this, Nyro proved that a set of soul tracks like this could come off well, if handled with the right talent! Titles include "The Bells", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Spanish Harlem", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "Desiree", "The Wind", "Nowhere To Run", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle".

New RatsIntermittent Signals ... LP
Mississippi, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 17.99
The second album by The Rats – who thundered into the 80s in fiery, cathartic fashion with the Intermittent Signals LP! Fred Cole & co trudge on without the departed (from the band, and soon from life on Earth) Rod Rat, but Rod guests on the LP – with Sam Henry of the Wipers now on board. The Rats had a pretty strong, if shambling melodic sensibility lost on many of their early 80s punk peers, and this LP is well worth a discovery! Titles include "Nightline", "Wanna Be Your Man", "Haywire Desire", "Kids Are Kids", "Descending Shadows", "Daddy's In The Shadows", "Radio Pulse", "Heaven Don't Cry", "Running Away From You", "Animal" and more.

New Roxy MusicManifesto ... LP
Atco, 1979. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the same time that reflects a move away from heavier styles of earlier years, but never loses the edge of the group's best work. Manifesto also reflects some of the lessons learned by Bryan Ferry on his solo records – a bit leaner and cleaner presentation of the songs – but the album itself is also strongly a group production effort, and certainly feels that way in its use of Phil Manzenera's great guitars and Andy Mackay's horn arrangements. Titles include "Ain't That So", "Stranger Through The Years", "Trash", "Manifesto", "Angel Eyes", "Spin Me Round", "Cry Cry Cry", and "My Little Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

New Roxy MusicSiren ... LP
Atco/EG, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
Quite possibly the biggest early moment of US fame for Roxy Music – thanks to the classic "Love Is The Drug", which kicks off the album and is easily one of the group's best-known tunes of the 70s! The album tightens things up slightly from the sound of Country Life before – not as many dark corners, but still plenty of the offbeat styles that make these early Roxy Music albums so great – with none of the softer styles that took over during the early 80s years. Other tracks include "End Of The Line", "She Sells", "Could It Happen To Me", "Both Ends Burning", "Just Another High", and "Whirlwind". LP, Vinyl record album

New Chad & JeremyDistant Shores (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Sundazed, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A slightly headier sound than before from Chad & Jeremy – music that's still in a great mix of Brit Invasion and Sunshine Pop, but which also shows a somewhat deeper sensibility too – a desire to reach past the simpler pop modes that first got the pair going here in the US! Chad Stuart's listed as the music director for the album – and we're not sure if he's the one responsible for the sound, but there's definitely some great elements going on – bits of flute, harpsichord, flugelhorn, and more – all wrapped up beautifully with some great production that hangs the whole album in a warmly harmonic pillow of sound. Titles include "Ain't It Nice", "Distant Shores", "Morning", "Homeward Bound", "You Are She", and "Don't Make Me Do It". CD features a whopping 13 bonus tracks – including "Last Night", "Teenage Failure", "Anytime", "Sticks & Stones", "Love Is Strange", and "If You Need Somebody". CD

New Jefferson AirplaneSurrealistic Pillow ... LP
RCA, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early genius from these Bay Area stalwarts – one of the greatest rock records of its time! Surrealistic Pillow is the second Jefferson Airplane album, but they took a number of huge creative leaps in the 8 months or so between their debut record and this one. This one is where they're joined by psych siren Grace Slick, but it's not just the line-up change that sets it apart. Surrealistic Pillow is a perfect title, as it's comforting and disorienting at the same time. It's also the magical confluence of wildly different spirits – with standout contributions by the entire band. Titles include the seminal "White Rabbit" – plus "Embryonic Journey", "3/5 Of A Mile In 10 Seconds", "DCBA 25", "How Do You Feel", "Today", "She Has Funny Cars", and "Plastic Fantastic Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

New AnonymousInside The Shadow ... CD
Machu Pichu, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

New Brute ForceExtemporaneous ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest singer/songwriter albums of the late 60s – and one of the rarest, too! Brute Force is essentially the brainchild of one Stephen Friedland, a songwriter for the Tokens, Cyrkle, the Creation and other late 60s figures – who combined the fey, iconoclastic wit of Nilsson and early Randy Newman with razor sharp, trippy as hell improvisational lyrics and commentaries. It's truly like nothing else of the time – with stream of consciousness lyrics, monologues and stage patter that's easily as weirdly compelling as the tunes. The album essentially documents a 1969 performance in New York, full of breezy piano tunes and crazily topical, multi-personality songs and storytelling. Incredibly strange, but great! Tracks include "I Love To Hear A Baby Cry", "King Of Fuh" (which was released as a single on Apple Records – for about 10 seconds), "The Sirens Cry", "Five Minutes For Peace", "Don't Parinoi It/Enjoy It", "The Reds Are Yellow", The Big Burp Theory" and more, plus five bonus tracks. CD
(Note: This is not the same Brute Force that released an album on Sepia Tone. There's nothing else like this album!)

New VariousResurrection – Rock Chretien Et Messes Rhythmees Du Quebec 1964 to 1978 ... CD
Mucho Gusto (Canada), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Church rock from 60s Quebec – a surprisingly great set of work that's way better than you might think from the concept! French Canada has always been strongly Catholic place – but it's also one that's pretty creatively inspired, too – so it's no surprise that in the wake of Vatican 2, lots of younger musicians were trying to find a way to get the message across – but in cool, groovy styles that really show the changes in sounds at the time! Some of these cuts are as freaky and fantastic as those heard on psych compilations from the Mucho Gusto label – and others have a cool funky approach – with lots of weird rhythms and offbeat instrumentation that's hardly what you'd expect to hear when walking into a church – and more in line with some of the more experimental rock-mass work from the US. Titles include "Raconte Moi" by Les Nocturnes, "Pierre" by Michel Conte, "Dieu Ne Se Mange Plus" by Jacques Michel, "Rappelle Toi Seigneur" by Steve Fiset, "Si Tous Les Hommes Voulaint" by Touladi & Gilles Jerome, "Ma Petite Esperance" by Les Messageres De Joi, "J'Ai Grand Desire De Votre Amour" by Les Allegros, "Gloire A Toi Tu Viens Nous Sauver" by Operation Jeunesse, and "Alleluia" by Pierre Labelle & Rene Angelil.
