Friend & LoverReach Out Of The Darkness ... LP
Verve/Forecast, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One hit wonders – but oh what a hit! Friend & Lover's "Reach Out Of The Darkness" is a really unique little tune that brings together folksy vocals and funky rhythms – a solid jammer that brushed off the cobwebs of the aging folk scene of the 60s, and sprung into the charts with a trippy groove that still sounds great today! The rest of the record has a really similar feel – much heavier bass and drums than the usual folk outing, creating a sound that's nicely funky on some of the best numbers, and always groovy on all the others. Vocals are by "Friend" Jim Post and "Lover" Cathy Conn – harmonizing together nicely – and titles include "Reach Out Of The Darkness", "Saturday's Hero", "Zig Zag", "Boston Is A Lovely Town", "I'm A Woman I'm A Man", "Ode To A Dandelion", and "If Love Is In Your Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

Tim HardinTim Hardin 1 ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Fair ... $4.99
Fantastically beautiful stuff! Tim emerges here as one of the true genius singer-songwriters of his generation – mixing together folksy roots, intimate jazz-inflected vocalizations, and wonderful instrumental touches from players like Gary Burton, Earl Palmer, and John Sebastian, layered over haunting strings by Artie Butler. One we'd never part with – and with classics like "Don't Make Promises", "It'll Never Happen Again", "Reason To Believe", and "Misty Roses". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has splitting on the spine.)

New Tim HardinTim Hardin 2 ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good- ... $14.99
A beautiful album that inspired lots of other artists from Scott Walker to Leonard Nimoy! Like some of the other albums on the Verve Forecast imprint, this set combines the hip, jazzy Verve aesthetic with parent label MGM's pop sensibilities, which add up to some great settings for Hardin's down to earth singer songwriter approach! Includes the classic "If I Were A Carpenter" , plus "Red Baloon", "Black Sheep Boy", and "Lady Came From Baltimore". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Forecast pressing. Cover has light wear. Label has a name in ink.)

Laura NyroLaura Nyro (aka First Songs) ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Laura Nyro's first album ever – and even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Hands Off The Man (Flim Flam Man)", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground (3rd LP) ... CD
Verve, 1969. Used ... $4.99
Incredible! This album is a masterpiece of subtle rock beauty, and it's still one of our favorite albums of all time. After the onslaught of the band's second album, White Light/White Heat, the Velvets laid back, toned down, and turned out this fantastic album of wonderfully crafted little songs. Every track is a delight, and the album bubbles with a dark genius that is incredibly hard to pinpoint. Tracks include "Pale Blue Eyes", "After Hours", "I'm Set Free", "Candy Says", "What Goes On", and "Jesus". CD
(BMG Direct pressing.)

New Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat ... LP
Verve, 1968. Very Good ... $13.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Polygram pressing, including the lyric sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

New Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away from record – as the mix of sounds, moods, and music comes together with a maddening frenzy – hardly the languid speed you'd expect from the early years of hippiedom – and instead, an inspirational stream of styles and ideas delivered with trademark Zappa dexterity and wit! The album's divided into two long passages – "Absolutely Free" and "The MOI American Pageant" – with tracks that include "Plastic People", "Amnesia Vivace", "The Duke Regains His Chops", "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Son Of Suzy Creamcheese", "Status Back Baby", and "The Duke Of Prunes".

New Blues ProjectProjections ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Stereo Verve Folkways pressing. Cover has some wear, a few stains, and some pen on the back.)

New MalachiHoly Music ... LP
Verve, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very tripped-out set of meditation music – issued by Verve in the late 60s, and arguably even more spacey and atmospheric than some of Tony Scott's similar records for the label at the time! Malachi is actually John Morgan Newbern – working here in a spare setting to capture the "evening vibrations" of a single night in 1966 – served up through instrumentation that includes low-end percussion, acoustic guitar, and a fair bit of Jew's harp – played by Steve Cunningham (of Red Crayola fame), but drifting out slowly over the longer tracks in the set. The album's an early example of the extremes that 60s labels used to address the growing interest in Eastern ideals at the time – and it's much less commercial than some of the more gimmicky sessions of the decade. Titles include "Wednesday – Second", "Wednesday – Sixth", "Wednesday – Fourth", "Wednesday – Fifth", and "Wednesday – Eighth". LP, Vinyl record album

New NicoChelsea Girl (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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! LP, Vinyl record album

New Frank ZappaLumpy Gravy ... LP
Verve, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from Frank Zappa – and a record that showed the world that he was also one hell of an arranger too! The album's got all the offbeat, tripped-out qualities that you'd expect from late 60s Zappa – but at times, it's also got this tightness that's really amazing – almost as if Frank's showing the world that he can easily do the same things as the studio wizards of LA pop – but chooses to keep most of his efforts on the wrong side of the tracks! There's plenty of larger backings at points – handled by some of the cream of the crop of the LA studio and jazz scene – but other moments are pretty darn raw, and have a gritty, almost homemade sound collage feel. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has wear, a cutout hole, and partially split top and bottom seams.)

Tim HardinBird On A Wire ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear with a hint of pen in one corner.)

New Tim HardinSuite For Susan Moore ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
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 fading on the top seam and some wear, with moisture staining, some peeling, and seam splitting along the bottom)

Laura NyroFirst Songs ... LP
Columbia, 1966/1973. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Laura Nyro's first album ever – originally issued by Verve/Forecast in the mid 60s, but brought back out on the market by Columbia, during the height of Nyro's early 70s fame for the label! Even at this early point, Nyro sounds wonderful – a fair bit more soulful than most other female pop singers of her time – with a fully-fleshed out approach to the vocals that's mature and sensitive, and almost a bit more confident at times than in later years. Arrangements are by Herb Bernstein, and almost have the same sort of sunny feel as The 5th Dimension in their famous covers of Nyro's tunes – again with more soul than we might have expected for the time. Titles include "Lazy Susan", "Stoney End", "Flim Flam Man", "Buy & Sell", "He's A Runner", "Billy's Blues", and "Wedding Bell Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
