Verve/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy 5 LPs (reissue).... $109.99
Music that no home should be without – presented here in a lavish package, with rare mono mixes too!

New NicoChelsea Girl ... CD
Verve, 1967. Used .... $5.99
One of the greatest records of the 60s – and a sublime debut from Nico, sounding fresher and less dreary here than on many of her later sides – although still pretty chilling overall! The record features larger orchestral backings on most tracks – never too heavy, but with light strings that really help Nico depart from the sound of her work with The Velvet Underground. This style adds a new level of sophistication to her vocals, and really helps in her interpretation of the unusual material culled for the set – tunes that include a few key numbers by old partners in The Velvets, as well as some especially great tracks by a young Jackson Browne – a romantic interest of Nico at the time! The whole thing's incredible – on a par with the best from Scott Walker during the same stretch, although very different overall – and a key entry in the darker side of the non-hippie end of the 60s spectrum. Titles include "These Days", "It Was A Pleasure Then", "Eulogy To Lenny Bruce", and the incredible title cut, "Chelsea Girls". Fantastic! CD

Ruben & The Jets (Frank Zappa)Cruising With Ruben & The Jets ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold .... $28.99
Frank Zappa's amazing tribute to the sounds of LA that inspired him in his youth – not just the early rock and roll of the late 50s, but the way the music was picked up and given a home by the scene in East LA! There's a surprising amount of nascent soul elements in the music here – especially the early harmony groups, who Frank's clearly paying tribute to with The Jets – sometimes dealing with subject matter that goes way beyond what most of those groups would have touched – but other times, right in line with the most heartfelt sounds of the 60s! Titles include "Deseri", "How Could I Be Such A Fool", "Cheap Thrills", "No No No", "Anyway The Wind Blows", "Stuff Up The Cracks", and "Jelly Roll Gum Drop". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label German pressing. Vinyl has a couple of marks that click a bit. Cover has light wear, a faded spined, a small spot of sticker residue, and a bit of pen in one corner. Labels have a bit of pen.)

Velvet UndergroundVU - A Collection Of Previously Unreleased Recordings ... CD
Verve, 1968/1969. Used .... $4.99
A slice of Velvet Underground that's almost as essential as the group's first few albums for Verve – material recorded during those years, but never issued at the time – finally put together in a legitimate package in the mid 80s, after years of circulating around as bootlegs! The songwriting here is really great – a strong extension of the group's work on White Light White Heat and their third, self-titled album – especially the latter, because there's some nicely sweet and spacey moments. Titles include "Stephanie Says", "Ocean", "I Can't Stand It", "Foggy Notion", "I'm Sticking With You", "Temptation Inside Your Heart", "Lisa Says", "One Of These Days", "Andy's Chest", and "She's My Best Friend".

Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat (45th Anniversary 2CD set) ... CD
Verve, 1968. New Copy 2 CDs .... $27.99 29.98
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute garage/psych jam of "Sister Ray" to the very odd "The Gift" – which is a creepy story about cuckolding, told with voice and instrumentation split over different stereo channels! Other tunes offset the darkness with an eerie touch of sweet – and include "Here She Comes Now", "Lady Godiva's Operation", and "I Heard Her Call My Name". Arguably one of the Velvets' most influential moments – even if it's also one of their least commercially successful! This great 2CD package features loads of sweet extra bits – including a 7 track Live At The Gymnasium performance from 1967, with versions of "Run Run Run", "Booker T", "I'm Not A Young Man Anymore", "I'm Waiting For The Man", "Sister Ray", and "Guess I'm Falling In Love" – plus "I Heard Her Call My Name (alternate)", "Hey Mr Rain (version one)", "Temptation Inside Your Heart (original mix)", "Stephanie Says (orig mix)", "Beginning To See The Light (early version)", "Hey Mr Rain (version two)", and "Guess I'm Falling In Love (instrumental)".

New Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... LP
Verve, 1967. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties". LP, Vinyl record album

New Blues ProjectProjections ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
A stone cooker from the Blues Project – a fantastic mix of blues, folk, and pretty darn hard rocking guitar – all recorded with a sense of freedom that really lets the group open up and do their thing! The album's overflowing with great original Al Kooper tunes – and the set's recorded with a great edge to the guitars, making for some wonderfully psychedelic moments – and a sheer raw power that's really let this one stand up over the years, without the kind of cliches you might expect from the group's name! Titles include "Fly Away", "Caress Me Baby", "Two Trains Running", "Steve's Song", "You Can't Catch Me", and "I Can't Keep From Crying". LP, Vinyl record album

New Velvet UndergroundAnother View – A Collection Of Previously Unreleased Recordings ... LP
Verve/Polygram, Late 60s. Used .... Out Of Stock
A follow-up to the VU album – and like that one, a mid 80s set that brings together material that the Velvet Underground recorded in the late 60s for Verve, but which remained unissued for years! The work here's a bit less top-shelf than that on VU – sometimes a bit more rough around the edges, and slightly more unformed – but like all Velvets from this point, the music's all still plenty darn essential, and almost outdoes most of what was to come on Loaded. Titles include an original version of "Rock & Roll", 2 takes on "Hey Mr Rain", and the tracks "We're Gonna Have A Goodtime Together", "I'm Gonna Move Right In", "Coney Island Steeplechase", "Ferryboat Bill", "Ride Into The Sun", and "Guess I'm Falling In Love (inst)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing from the 80s, including the printed inner sleeve. Back cover has a promo stamp.)

Tim HardinBird On A Wire ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $14.99
Brilliant work from Tim Hardin – an album recorded for Columbia after his years on Verve, showing him still growing as an artist, moving past the folksy style of early hits, into a broadly-expressed singer/songwriter mode, one that shows traces of Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, and other folk rock luminaries of the time. Featuring shorter tracks and a few covers, Bird On A Wire shows Hardin still capable of proudly expressed tunes in a more conventional mode. Titles include "First Love Song", "Everything Good Become More True", "Loneliness She Knows", "Magician", "Susan", "Love Hymn", "Andre Johray", "If I Knew", and "Soft Summer Breeze".

Tim HardinSuite For Susan Moore ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold .... $8.99
A beautiful late album from Tim Hardin – a full suite of tracks dedicated to wife Susan (aka The Lady Came From Baltimore) and his new son Damion – all done in a style that's far more complicated, ambitious, and personal than before! The work here has a shaky brilliance – as Hardin unsurely expresses his joy and insecurity at the thought of having a family – honest about his own shortcomings and personal problems, but also wonderfully filled with a sense of joy as well. There's a sense of pain and conflict in the work that runs deeper than that in most of Hardin's earlier music for Verve – and the album's a real lost treasure that's worth seeking out. Titles include "Everything Good Become More True", "First Love Song", "Question Of Birth", "Last Sweet Moments", "Magician", "Loneliness She Knows", and "One One The Perfect Sum" LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear, fading on the top seam and spine, a small split on the top seam, and a sticker on the back.)

Tim HardinThis Is Tim Hardin ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good+ .... $9.99
Rootsier material than you might be used to from Tim Hardin – tracks that were recorded before his famous albums on Verve in the mid 60s, but issued later by Atlantic Records – obviously in an attempt to rush some Hardin material on the market! Despite that cash-in scenario, though, the record's still quite good – a rougher, folksier, almost bluesier version of Tim than you might know from his more familiar hits – working here with heavy acoustic guitar, and often singing traditional tunes of the type that were much more common with folkies. The record does feature the original Hardin numbers "Danville Dame", "Fast Freight", "I Can't Slow Down", and "You Got To Have More Than One Woman" – plus a version of Fred Neil's "Blues On The Ceiling", and the titles "Cocaine Bill", "House Of The Rising Sun", and "Stagger Lee".

Frank ZappaFiner Moments (previously unreleased) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Zappa, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $28.99 39.98
Finer moments from Frank Zappa, but some lost moments too – given that all the tracks on the set are previously unreleased – and are pulled from both live and studio recordings during Zappa's formative late 60s/early 70s stretch! The package is a real treasure trove – a reward to fans of Frank who've waited so long for music like this – sounds to rival some of the most groundbreaking music from Zappa's years at Verve and Reprise, with incredibly deft instrumental interplay – often a bit more improvised in the live tracks than on the full albums of the time! The sound quality is pretty nice, especially given that a few of these tracks are from near-lost tapes or cassettes – and the package is very well-done – with super-heavy vinyl, and notes on all the tracks. Titles include "Sleazette", "The Walking Zombie Music", "Music From The Big Squeeze", "The Subcutaneous Peril", and "Pumped & Waxed". LP, Vinyl record album
