New Leathercoated MindsTrip Down The Sunset Strip (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Viva/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lost gem from the LA scene of the 60s – a set that was originally cast as an exploitation of the heady Sunset Strip scene, but which actually features a fair bit of excellent work by the young JJ Cale! Cale arranged and produced the set, and wrote some tunes too – and the record features lots of his own great guitar – really kind of weird and trippy, and played in a style that's deft, but kind of weirdly sonic too! Half the tunes are covers of the most tripped-out psych numbers of the time, and the rest are great originals – with vocals that are right on the money, but still take second stage to the great guitar. Titles include "Pot Luck", "Non Stop", "Kicks", "Arriba", "Sunshine Superman", "Over Under Sideways Down", and "Sunset & Clark". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousFuzz, Psych, & Surf Garage Sounds Of The 60s ... CD
Essential, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A weird and wild collection of rare garage rock groovers from the 60s – all pulled from tiny little labels, and laid out here back to back in a tapestry of heavy Hammond and fuzzy guitars! Some of the tunes are instrumental, but even the vocal numbers place the same sort of focus on the guitar and keyboard lines you'd find in the bigger groups from the Northwest scene of the time – that sharp edge that went onto infect small combos all around the country. The package features 26 tracks in all – and titles include "Snow Job" by The Tarots, "Victims Of Chance" by Victims Of Chance, "The Walk" by The Triumphs, "Faith Abounds" by Licorice Stix, "Parade At The Funny Farm" by The Crazy People, "Trippin" by Viva, "Sunny" by The Music Company, "Songs I Hear" by The Trueth, and "To Find Out" by The Keggs.

CrampsDate With Elvis ... LP
Big Beat (UK), 1986. Very Good ... $16.99
One of the best full lengths by The Cramps! By the time A Date With Elvis came out in the mid 80s, The Cramps had pretty much perfected their wild mix of ghoulish innuendo and truly devoted roots rock/garage revivalism. The sex club and monster movie imagery was for show, but their love of rootsy rumbles was no joke! The record is dedicated to the memory of Ricky Nelson and the dedication is not ironic. Great, ghoulish Cramps at their mid-decade peak. Oh, and by the way. . .Elvis couldn't have handled a date with Ivy. She'd have wrecked that boy. Includes "How Far Can I Go?", "The Hot Pearl Snatch", "People Ain't No Good", "What's Inside A Girl?", "Can Your Pussy Do The Dog?", "Kizmiaz", "Aloha From Hell", "Cornfed Dames" and more.

Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven of which were recorded on a two-track reel-to-reel stereo recorder – and it's exciting, pummeling, incendiary stuff! A worthy addition to Death revival campaign that began with Drag City's essential release of their For The Whole World To See album. Get it! Includes "Views", "The Masks", "Change", "World Of Tomorrow", "The Storm Within", "Dannis On The Motor City Drums" and more. CD

DinAuthenticity (includes bonus CD) ... LP
Din Jam, 2013. New Copy ... $22.99
The long-overdue return of Din – a group missing from this planet for a quarter of a century – recently reformed and revived from the ashes of their California roots! The record's got a relatively vintage feel – from the cloud-swirling production on the guitars, to the sense of static and crackle on the vocals, to the lavish Independent Projects packaging of the limited vinyl-only release – but it's also clear that these guys have a lot more to offer than "din", and have really honed their craft over the years. Tunes are well-penned, with a sense of the old mixed with optimism of their revival – on titles that include "Winning", "Never Again", "Going Down", "Words From Jack", "Voodoo Hotel", and "If". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited, numbered pressing of 500 copies – done by Bruce Licher/Independent Projects.)

English BeatWha'ppen ... CD
Go Feet/London, 1981. Used ... $8.99
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene! Wha'ppen has lots of fresh instrumentation and experimentation – but that's in service of some tight, insistent songcraft – and they never ever bury their their Caribbean influences. There's a bit more Afro Beat-inspired rhythms and some atmospheric underground pop touches, but it's still get plenty of the Jamaican style we loved about their earlier work, too – on a record that didn't get the acclaim it deserved at the time! Titles include "Monkey Murders", "I Am Your Flag", "Walk Away", "Get A Job", "The Limits We Set", "Dream Home In NZ", and "Drowning". CD

Roky EricksonEvil One (with download) ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1981. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Roky Erickson's fantastic early 80s solo material – tracks that were produced by Creedence Clearwater Revival's Stu Cook – with some of the most straight-forward and accessible rockers in Roky's canon, but still sporting his trademark eccentricity! Given his mythical personal history, you can easy describe Roky Erickson as "having demons" – but as you'll hear, he's also got two-headed dogs, vampires, zombies, fire demons, ghosts and Lucifer himself – just on this one record! The tracks have an odd release history – having been recorded in the late 70s, but not released until 1980 in the UK on the Five Symbols record, and in '81 as The Evil One LP, with an altered tracklist. This definitive Light In The Attic version gathers up all 15 amazing tracks from the Stu Cook sessions from '77-'79. Includes the legendary "Two Headed Dog" and many more tunes that are just as incredible! Titles include "I Walked With A Zombie", "Night Of The Vampire", "It's A Cold Night For Alligators", "Mine Mine Mind", "I Think Of Demons", "Creature With The Atom Brain", "Bloody Hammer", "Don't Shake Me Lucifer", "If You Have Ghosts" and more.

SpecialsMore Specials (180 gram pressing with bonus 7") ... LP
2 Tone/Chrysalis, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The second great set from The Specials – music once billed as "revival ska" – but which has arguably gone onto have a bigger impact than the first wave of the genre! There's a rough edged quality to the music that's totally great – a rude boy aesthetic filtered through the post-punk generation – perfect for the spare, earthy Two Tone production – and just right for a post-colonial London, looking for new ways to express itself! The studio work is as great as the core grooves from the band – lots of odd echoes and cool effects – kind of a Brit take on Kingston dub, served up beautifully to abstract the tunes. So many others ruined this approach in later years with weaker work – but here's a chance to hear it perfectly in an original conception! Titles include "International Jet Set", "Enjoy Yourself", "Stereotypes", "Holiday Fortnight", and "I Can't Stand It". Very cool package also fetaures a bonus 7" single – with "Braggin & Tryin Not To Die" by Roddy Radiation & The Specials b/w "Rude Boys Outta Jail (version)" by Neville Staples.

VariousGreenwich Village In The 60s – Beginnings & Branches Of The New York Folk Revival ... CD
Warner (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99
A really well-done collection that gets at the full range of folk sounds in the Village scene of the 60s – and one that also traces some of its influence in farther reaches too! The package was put together by Warner, and features some real gems from the Elektra catalog – mixed with other great bits from Vanguard, Prestige, Tradition, and even Columbia Records too – all very important forces in folk music that really had a strong presence in New York, and were often working hard to grab the freshest young talents to make the scene. The 2CD package features over 40 tracks – some classics mixed with lesser-known treasures – and Richie Unterberger's notes really do a great job of situating the music and illuminating the Village a the time. Titles include "He Was A Friend" by Dian & The Greenbriar Boys, "Close The Door Lightly When You Go" by Eric Anderson, "Hang Me Oh Hang Me" by Dave Van Ronk, "I Can't Slow Down" by Tim Hardin, "Patriot Game" by Liam Clancy, "House Un-American Blues Activity Dream" by Richard Farina, "The Cuckoo" by Jean Ritchie, "Urge For Going" by Tom Rush, "Fare Thee Well" by Bob Gibson, "500 Miles" by Hedy West, "The Street" by David Blue, "The Death Of Queen Jane" by Joan Baez, and "Deportees" by Cisco Houston.

New Bob DylanBob Dylan Live In Concert – Brandeis University 1963 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early live Dylan at the Brandeis University folk festival of 1963 – tapes discovered at the home of late music writer Ralph Gleason – a treasure he managed to hide from the world for nearly a half century! The material is culled from 2 sets performed by Dylan at Brandeis on May 10, 1963 – seven songs and nearly 40 minutes all together – with young Dylan in fine form, sticking to his originals rather than simply reinterpreting the folk revival canon, as many of his peers would do in such a venue. "Honey, Just Allow Me", "Talkin' John Burch Paranoid Blues", "Masters Of War", "Talkin' World War III Blues", "Bob Dylan's Dream" and "Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues".

New HeronHeron (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Dawn/Mapeche (Spain), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful batch of British folk tunes from Heron – and a really unique album that was actually recorded outside in a field – which makes for a very different sound! The music might be dubbed "acid folk", but it's got a slightly warmer, slightly redemptive quality – and is a really great illustration of the Brit folk revival at its best – that very different approach to US folkies of a few years before – served up with this mix of simplicity and sophistication that's completely sublime. Titles include "Car Crash", "Yellow Roses", "Upon Reflection", "Smiling Ladies", "Lord & Master", "For You", and "Carnival & Penitence". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited reissue is on heavy vinyl, with a bonus insert – and a replica of the band's original 7" EP too!)

New Tommy JamesTommy James (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing and melodic pop psychedelia from Tommy James – partly backed by the Shondells, and partly by the group Neon on this set from the start of the 70s – with reverby guitars that waver off into the heavens and hooks the sink to the bone! It's great stuff for us, which heady psychedelic fans might have found too self consciously catchy, and pop fans might have found weird and off putting, but the mix of those vibes make it all the more uniquely appealing to our ears. Titles include "Ball And Chain", "Meet The Comer", "Light Of Day", "Come To Me", "Lady Jane" and "Quicksilver". This Rev Ola CD version includes 2 bonus tracks: "Draggin The Line" and "Church Street Soul Revival". CD

New Steely DanGaucho ... LP
MCA, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too – not in the music, which is still up there in the heavens, but in some of the subject matter of the tunes, which almost takes us back to Royal Scam territory. Donald Fagan's vocals are wonderful throughout – a sound for which there's no referent or real description – and the balance in the instrumentation is near perfect on tunes that include "Babylon Sisters", "Hey Nineteen", "Time Out Of Mind", "My Rival", "Glamour Profession", and "Gaucho". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve.)

New TuxedomoonHalf-Mute ... LP
Ralph, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
The group's last recording before departing their San Francisco roots – a strange artful document that bears little resemblance to the US scene at the time, and which has sounds and styles that remind us much more of work coming from the German and North England experimental groups of the period. Electronics are at the core of the set – used in spare but effective ways – sometimes in support of darkly poetic vocals, but other times concerned only with themselves – exploring sound textures and rhythms in a manner that recalls some of the more tuneful work by Throbbing Gristle. There's a sound here that's sinister, yet subdued – a refreshing change to the excesses of the period, and with a quality that has allowed it to travel the passage of time extremely well. Titles include "Fifth Column", "Seeding The Clouds", "Loneliness", "James Whale", "What Use?", "Volo Vivace", and "Tritone". LP, Vinyl record album

New English BeatI Just Can't Stop It (with bonus track) ... CD
IRS/Shout Factory, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms are tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocal. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. This 2012 CD version also includes "Ranking Full Stop" – which wasn't on the original UK release. CD

New English BeatSpecial Beat Service (with bonus tracks) ... CD
IRS/Shout Factory, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The third album from The English Beat and another step further away from their rougher roots – which may not have sat well with strident fans of their earlier, punchier ska revival sounds – but it stands up today as one of the most timeless leftfield pop albums of the early 80s! The Beat never discarded their calypso, ska, rocksteady inspirations, they simply expanded upon them – and there's plenty of hooky, catchy songcraft on Special Beat Service – as well as the uncommonly soulful pop of songs like "Save It For Later"! Other tracks include "I Confess", "Jeanette", "Sorry", "Sole Salvation", "She's Going", "End OF The Party", "Ackee 1 2 3" and more. This 2012 CD version has 4 bonus tracks: "What's Your Best Thing", "March Of The Swivel Heads", "Cool Entertainer" and "A Go Talk (Tappy Luppy Dub)". CD

New FourmyulaInside The Hutt – New Zealand's Pop-Psych Kingpins 1968/1969 ... CD
HMV/RPM (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Fourmyula may have a weird name, but their groove is totally great – a wicked approach to pop psych that was lost to the larger 60s world outside of New Zealand – but which has gotten a really rich revival in recent years! The approach is similar to US work of the time – a bit of fuzz and echo tied around some tighter rhythms and hooks – but there's really something special, something unique about these guys – a voice that makes digging into these rare singles a really rich discovery – kind of a lost world of pop and psych flavored in some very fresh ways! As with other titles on the RPM label, the mastering, presentation, and production is totally great – light years past any sort of bootleggy psych reissues – which really furthers the fun of the set. Titles include the classic "Nature", plus "Orphan", "Scorpio", "Come With Me", "Honey Chile", "I Dig Your Act", "Mr Whippy", "Home", "Sally's Line", and "Cosy Picture Theatre". CD

New PlayRed Movies (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Survival/Medical, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Moody electro pop from the UK scene of the early 80s – served up by a duo with roots in Drinking Electricity and Analysis, with a sound that's right up there with the dark early best of Human League or Cabaret Voltaire! Given the dates of these tracks – 1982 to 1984 – Play have clearly gotten a later start, and feel maybe like some of the best second or third-generation Factory Records acts – those groups who only issued singles on that label, but created some really memorable moments before the Manchester explosion later in the decade. The vocals are nicely dark, with New Order qualities – and instrumentation is relatively spare, with lots of processed guitar and keyboards – yet somehow pretty tuneful, too. Titles include "Erase The Memory", "This Little Girl", "You Don't Look The Same", "In My Mind", "Chasing The Sun", and "Red Movies". LP, Vinyl record album
