Freewheeling, tripped out Catalonian rock from Fusioon! The album groove has bits of spacey rock, prog and freaked out bits of funk – you can pick it apart for trace influences, but ultimately, the vibe is all their own – Absolute Fusioon, indeed!

The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Gandalf ... LP Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)....
$9.99Just Sold Out!
A fantastic lost psych album – with a moody spacey sound augmented by lots of organ, harpsichord, and electric piano! The best cuts are short and echoey – with kind of a trippy pop feel that sounds like post-Brit invasion lyricism, mixed with LA stoner freedom, and a good dash of Love-e ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Brilliant mid 90s EP from pioneering Chicago avant rock greats Gastr Del Sol – essentially the duo of David Grubbs and Jim O'Rourke – with a percussion assist from John McEntire on a couple of the 5 tracks, and bass clarinet by Gene Coleman on "Eight Corners". Other titles ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Italo electronic grooves from the early 80s – some vocoder-heavy synth pop from Gay Cat Park – and rare home recordings made from '82 to '84!

Don't mix these guys up with the bigger-name Genesis – because this combo doesn't feature Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel – and instead is an American group from the late 60s that works in a sweetly melodic approach to psychedelia! Some tunes are heavy on the fuzz, with guitars right out ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An album we come back to more and more over the years – a bit more subtle than some of the other Gabriel-era Genesis records, but in a good way! Titles include "Aisle Of Plenty", "More Fool Me", "Firth Of Fifth", "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight", ... read moreCD

Important work from Robert Fripp and the brothers Peter & Michael Giles – recorded a year before the first King Crimson album with a mad sound that's somewhere in between Bowie's early Deram recordings, and some of the Syd Barrett work with Pink Floyd! Although Fripp's guitar figures ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The post punk debut of Bristol's Glaxo Babies – and one of the cooler blends of avant noise and oddly danceable mutant disco! The group is less concerned about song structure than they are with find a groove, weird as it may be, and playing it out in a way that puts your head a trance, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty amazing batch of early Glaxo Babies recordings – demos made before their debut Nine Months To The Disco, when Rob Chapman was still in the band – and they were much different band after he split! They're working in a more song based, jagged guitar mode here, but still with the ... read moreCD

Godley & Creme —
L ... LP Polydor, 1978. Near Mint- ....
What a weird one! This strange little record is one of the few that the team of Lol Creme and Kevin Godley cut after leaving 10CC – and it's a melange of odd songs that take off from the compressed pop style of their former group. Some of the lyrics are a bit silly, but there's also some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Golden Dawn —
Power Plant ... CD International Artists/Snapper (UK), 1967. New Copy ....
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs ... read moreCD
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul ... read moreCD
Very early live work from the Grateful Dead – pulled from the vaults and beautifully remastered – all to serve as a document of the rich creative energy of the group at their start!

Recent work from ex-Fleetwood Mac man Peter Green – two albums recorded in the 21st Century, but both showing that strong commitment to blues and roots that made Green's years with the group so unique! Peter's still a mighty strong guitar player – and backings are relatively ... read moreCD
Pre-Bread work from Jimmy Griffin – recording here in a sweet Cali setting, thanks to arrangements from the young Jack Nitzsche! The album's got all the light sounds and sunny feelings you'd guess from the title and cover – but Jimmy's also got a voice that's surprisingly strong, too ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Incredible solo guitar work from David Grubbs – a format the artist has used often in performances, but hardly ever on record!

Man, these guys look weird on the cover – and they also sound pretty weird on the record, too – in this strange mode that really makes the album an unusual one all the way through! There's lots of dark phrasing on the guitars that really offset the whiteness of the cover – almost ... read moreCD
A groovy little collection that features a few previously-unissued tracks from the great early years of Hall & Oates at Atlantic Records – plus a few tracks from other label releases as well! The unissued numbers are all from 1973, and done with Arif Mardin's help in the studio – ... read moreCD
