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

Blues ProjectProjections ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Good ... $1.99
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.)

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".

Tim HardinTim Hardin 1 ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Fair ... $2.99
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

Ruben & The Jets (Frank Zappa)Cruising With Ruben & The Jets ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
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

New Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Verve, Late 60s. Used ... $5.99
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".

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground (3rd LP) ... CD
Verve, 1969. Used ... $2.99
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

Mothers Of Invention (Frank Zappa)We're Only In It For The Money ... LP
Verve, 1968. Good+ Gatefold ... $18.99
An early masterpiece from Frank Zappa – one of those records that looks like it's going to be a big ol' mess when you first see the cover – but which turns out to be a carefully calculated act of madness in the end! The Mothers have all their freeform freaky brilliance intact here – still some of the snide edges of the early years, but also really learning their craft as well – and stretching out under Zappa's direction into a pastiche of songs that explore the anxieties and inanities of late 60s America! Frank produced the whole thing with an approach that others wouldn't reach for years – shifting styles, instrumentation, and sound sources with effortless ease – over tracks that include "Hot Poop", "The Idiot Bastard", "Lonely Little Girl", "Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance", "Harry You're A Beast", "Mom & Dad", "Who Needs The Peace Corps", and "Flower Punk". LP, Vinyl record album

New Appletree TheatrePlayback ... LP
Verve, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mid 60s concept pop from Appletree Theatre – a mix of unpredictable baroque pop, soaring string laden tunes, and more stripped down and moody numbers – and programmed as acts, in keeping with the theatre mode! What's most impressive, other than the tuneful songcraft, is that it never comes off as shtick, and the concept doesn't get in the way of the songs, making this a really nice discovery! Arranged as a 3 act play, with overture and epilogue, titles include "Lullaby", "Hightower Square", "Saturday Morning", "Nevertheless It Was Italy", "I Wonder If Louise Is Home", "E-Train", "Brother Speed", "Don't Blame It On Your Wife", "What A Way To Go" and more.

New NicoChelsea Girl (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Verve/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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 Laura NyroLaura Nyro (aka First Songs) ... LP
Verve, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Righteous BrothersSouled Out ... LP
Verve, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest blue eyed soul albums of the 60s – and one of the few full albums ever recorded by the mostly-singles Righteous Brothers! The album builds wonderfully on the duo's earlier work for Phil Spector – and uses Motown maestro Mickey Stevenson to give the record a sophisticated uptown soul sound that's a perfect match for the well-crafted vocals of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. The songs here are pretty fresh too – a batch of tunes that gets past their familiar hits, and features some great Motown influences from writers Leon Ware, Stevenson, and others. Titles include "Been So Nice", "Stranded In The Middle Of Noplace", "You Bent My Mind", "Without You I'd Be Lost", "Love Keeps Callin My Name", and "So Many Lonely Nights Ahead". LP, Vinyl record album

New Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free ... LP
Verve, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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

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".

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
