The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover and label have a name stamp.)
Three full albums from heavy rocker Bob "Catfish" Hodge – a great underground talent on the Detroit scene of the late 60s and early 70s – and one who recorded for the same Westbound label as Funkadelic! Hodge shares a lot with some of the best Detroit talents of the time ... read moreCD
An overlooked gem from The Holy Modal Rounders – the group's fifth album, and a set that shows them moving into a slightly more subtle style than before – but still with plenty of their trademark touches intact! The work often has a sweetly folksy feel – one that conjures up the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, several stains, and two peeled spots in the bottom right corner.)
Sublime girl group sounds from the great Lee Hazlewood – the complete recordings of Honey Ltd – an obscure Hazlewood project from the end of the 60s! The style here combines all the depths of Lee's own music with some of the sweeter Sunshine Pop sounds you'd expect from the cover ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sweet LP pressing – comes in a heavy jacket with a poster too!)
A great set of rare Canadian psych folk from the early 70s – rawly beautiful work that's way too good to have languished in the purgatories of general obscurity and collectors' hopes and dreams! Upon A Once Time is an all acoustic set, a good deal of it just Huckle's airy voice and guitar, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Comes in a great paste-on sleeve – with insert. Limited to 500 copies.)
The second of the 2 great lost Canadian psych folk records by Huckle! Wild Blue Yonder expands a bit on the gentle acoustic songcraft of the earlier Upon A Once Time LP – still working in a largely acoustic mode, but with a more extroverted approach – with more percussion, some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Comes in a great reproduction of the original sleeve – with a new insert. Limited to 500 copies.)

Human League —
Dare ... LP A&M/Virgin, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has a factory sticker on the spine.)
Humble Pie scales back a bit on Thunderbox – a tighter set than the preceding Eat It – but like that album, it's overlooked these days and it has plenty to recommend it! The Steve Marriot's and Clem Clemson's guitars bring the thunder, but the wailing harmonica and the soulfu vocals ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
These guys will forever be known for the jazzy grooving title hit – "Vehicle", a brassy driving number that seems as if it's always being used in some sort of car commercial (which must net these guys a lot of royalties!) – but which is usually mistaken by others for being the ... read moreCD
One of the wildest records of the early 70s – and it's still pretty darn hard to argue with the power of this one – even if the meddling of the producers is nearly as legendary as the album itself! There's still such a manic energy to the original release mix – one that clearly ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Vrt Svetlosti ... CD Radiotelevizija Beograd/Atlantide (Germany), 1980. New Copy ...
Lost prog from the Yugoslavian scene of the late 70s – a scene that was a few years behind the rest of Europe, but at a level that only meant they tried harder than some of their contemporaries! These guys jam nicely on keyboards and processed guitars – at a level that reminds us of ... read moreCD

Sirio 2222 ... LP RCA/Lion, 1970. New Copy (reissue)...
A really stunning set from Il Balletto Di Bronzo – a group who clearly have the instrumental chops to take off in a proggish way, but really keep things interesting here by staying in a grittier, more straightforward groove! The power of the drums and guitars is wonderful – almost funk ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Invisible Hands —
Teslam ... CD Abduction, 2014. New Copy ...
The second album from Invisible Hands – the group led by Alan Bishop of the Sun City Girls – and a record that's even better put-together than the first! There's a bit more of a song structure this time around – and some of the more tuneful moments are surprisingly powerful ... read moreCD
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Atco pressing. Cover has wear, and aging, which is worse on the back.)
Hard riffing from Scotland's Iron Claw – a group who owe plenty to the best early work of Black Sabbath, but also take off nicely in their own direction as well! The guitar work is frenetic, the bass nice and fuzzy, and there's a sense of darkness that really comes through in the vocals too ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Super-heavy pressing, with bonus insert too, please note that there is a small score across the back of the LP sleeve – nothing major.)
