Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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 moreLP, Vinyl record album
A surprisingly groovy set of tunes – from a singer that we really only know from Biker Soundtracks! Tony Bruno wrote all the tracks on the set himself, and the album's part uptown soul, part 60s male vocals – but arranged with an oddly hip edge by the great Artie Butler, who makes a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Preflyte ... LP Together Records, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ....
One of the more heavily brooding albums ever cut by Leonard Cohen – and also one of the best – the iconic Songs Of Love And Hate from 1971! Cohen's aptly titled third LP, with the nice spare approach to production that most of his early work had, even more stripped down, with voice and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Although Colosseum are probably best known as a hard rocking progressive band, they certainly had plenty of jazz touches – and this album spawned the great groover "Elegy", which has become something of a jazzy dancefloor classic over the years! Overall, the record's got some very ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

(In the textured cover with a cutout hole and a sticker on the back.)
Donovan at his jazzy best – really picking up where Mellow Yellow left off, and pushing the jazz influences in his sound to deeper lengths! Mr Leitch is a million miles away from his Dylanesque early roots on the set – and is working in territory that's completely his own – a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Ian Dury & The Blockheads —
Laughter ... LP Stiff, 1980. Very Good+ ....
A classic set from the legendary Ian Dury & The Blockheads! Ian's gravelly-voiced stories and gibberish are backed by loose, funky and sarcastic post disco/soul backing by the Blockheads – in a mad mix of styles that had a huger audience than anyone might have expected at the time. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Loads of classics – including "Blowin In The Wind", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Like A Rolling Stone", "Rainy Day Women #12 & #35", "Positively 4th Street", "Just Like A Woman", "Mr Tambourine Man", and "I Want You". ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Donald Fagen —
Nightfly ... LP Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ....
$8.99Just Sold Out!
A bit of jazzy magic from Fagen – stepping out from the cover of Steely Dan after the Gaucho album, and sounding pretty darn great on his own! The record is almost nostalgic, going back to a 50s of Brubeck, abstract expressionism, and pre-Castro Havana – filled with images that are a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac —
Rumours ... LP Warner, 1977. Near Mint- ....

Their 4th album. Amazing traditional country songwriting a la Carter Family, Louvin Brothers, etc. They may be young-ish, urbanish, hipster-ish, but they are absolutely the real thing. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has some peeling on the bottom inch.)
Well, we should hate this one as another "cash in on the late Hendrix" kind of album – but it's a pretty nice bunch of funk tracks with (supposedly) Jimi's guitar chopping away in heavy hard lines, and Lonnie Youngblood blowing away on hard heavy tenor. A number of tracks have ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Not experienced? Well, this album will help push you over the top – as it's done for decades of listeners from the heyday of young Jimi Hendrix all the way up to the present!

Timeless rock & roll from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – an indie rock pioneer who simply doesn't get the credit she deserves for shattering the glass ceiling for both women and independent souls in mainstream rock in the early 80s!

Law ... LP GRC, 1975. Sealed ....
$7.99Just Sold Out!
Sort of a funk/rock LP, recorded for GRC, and with a sound in parts that's like some of the more rock cuts on the Ripple LP. Same as that group, this is a mixed racial band with both a funk and rock sound. Cuts include "Runnin' On", "Tootin", "Wake Up", and "Soli ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary. On IV, they do a bit of what the did on each of the three preceding albums, but rather than starting to repeat themselves, they get better! Amazing. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing with SD 7208 catalog number. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
One of their first "insurgent country" LPs, recorded way back before that term was waaay overused by waaay too many journalists, and before all of the hope that the genre would have offered went the way of all the empty beer bottles that were used to prop it up. Still as fresh and tasty ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Bluesy soul from Buddy Miles – an album that was half-produced by Jimi Hendrix, and which showcases the really crowd-pleasing side of Miles' sound! Tracks are a mix of soul covers and original numbers – done in a mode that puts plenty of guitar out front in the mix, and which uses ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A classic! Where would electronic pop be without Gary Numan's "Cars"? Alongside Kraftwerk's classic 80s albums and Yellow Magic Orchestra's first LP, this album by Gary Numan ranks as one of the most essential synth driven LPs. Brilliant pop numbers that awash with robotic tones that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A classic Christmas set from Elvis – recorded with a mix of tunes that show the popular and spiritual nature of the holiday.

One of the most obscure albums we've ever seen on the Stax-related label Enterprise – the only release by a group that's actually pretty darn nice!

Great later Roxy – mellow, but warmly wonderful – and kind of a combination of the Bryan Ferry solo mode with the group's other styles. Titles include "Same Old Scene", "Flesh & Blood", "My Only Love", "Oh Yeah", "No Strange Delight" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A beautifully personal statement from the young Todd Rundgren – a set of focused, well-written tunes that point towards his pop genius to come, but also expose a few of his more ambitious modes as well. As always with Rundgren, the best tunes on the set are the mellower, quieter ones – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound!
