Excellent analogue electronics by this groovy modern combo! The record reminds us of some of our favorite late 60s compilations of tracks from the obscure electronic music centers of American universities – with loads of bubbling, fuzzing, and repetitive wave forms. Tracks include "Inev... read more
Early 60s surf rock from ace guitarist Richie Allen & The Pacific Surfers – another prime example of the excellent slices of expertly crafted, yet vaguely trashy instrumentals Capitol Records was cranking out in the era! There's a seedy quality to these gems that's really wonderful... read more
A landmark set from the German prog scene – the first amazing utterance of Ash Ra Tempel, and a standard-setting album that few others could ever hope to match! The sound here builds beautifully – coming out of abstract, noisy territory, then finding shape as the record goes on –... read more
A spare and folksy set on ESP – the only record for the label by Ed Askew, an extremely poetic singer with an approach that's somewhat in the mode of labelmates Pears Before Swine! Ed's work is more stripped-down, though – as the record only features his vocals with accompaniment on... read more
Joan Baez, back when she was really pretty darn amazing – a young, fresh, powerful force in 60s folk music! The set features Baez on vocals and guitar – with additional electric guitar on a few tracks, a bit of mandolin, and some bass. Includes great readings of Dylan tunes "Farew... read more
The slimmed-down, single LP effort that Capitol issued after the collapse of the legendary Smile album – and a pretty sublime set nonetheless! Sure, some might argue that you can't enjoy Brian Wilson's genius until you've listened to 20 bootlegs of the sessions with dozens of takes on the... read more
One of the superest of the late 60s supergroups – with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker, and Rick Grech! Titles include "Had To Cry Today", "Presence Of The Lord", "Do What You Like", "Sea Of Joy", and "Well All Right".... read more

The pairing of Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb is probably one of the greatest ideas ever in the history of pop music – as you'll hear on the album's title track, "By The Time I Get To Phoenix". Glen's original hit version of the song – written by a wee Jimmy at a young age... read more
One of just a couple of albums by Leonard Cohen from the 80s – certainly an underappreciated one, in regard to his late 60s and early 70s canon – and that's a shame, because this is pretty brilliant stuff! Stylistically, there's sparse folk pop, some steel guitar twang and then... read more
Wonderful B-Movie sleaze from Mike Curb and his usual host of studio rock freakout groups! The sound is pure Tower – a bit kitsch and a bit garagey – kind of a blend of the gritty sound of the late 60s underground, mixed with soundtrack modes that offer up a cool fantasy of that scene... read more

$6.99Just Sold Out!
An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the... read more
The first album, and a bit more straight folksy than later work – but still with some amazing young flashes of genius! Titles include "Highway 51", "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean", "Song To Woody", "Man Of Constant Sorrow", "Fixin To Die",... read more
Plenty of early classics and hits – including "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", "Blowin In The Wind", "Down The Highway", "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", "I Shall Be Free", "Bob Dylan's Dream", and "Oxford Town".... read more
Some of the darkest acoustic work that Dylan ever recorded – and filled with beautiful songs like "With God On Our Side", "North Country Blues", "Only A Pawn In Their Game", "The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll", "Boots Of Spanish Leather",... read more
A pretty nice album of soaring jazz rock tunes – with lots of solo jamming on organ and guitar, and less vocals to get in the way of the instrumental riffing. Titles include "Land Of No Body", "Inside", and "Future City".... read more
Pure genius from The Ex, whose revolutionary style of noise punk (in the aural sense and in agenda) is firing masterfully on this early 90s set – making aggressive, tuneful, caustic and consistently riveting magic with the accompaniment of cellist Tom Cora! At a time when the so-called... read more
