One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from ... (Rock) read moreCD
A groundbreaking debut from The Seeds – one of those albums that seemed to come out of nowhere back in the 60s, then went onto have an undeniable influence on music for decades to come! The music is gritty and garagey right from the start – but also has a sinister focus that really ... (Rock) read moreCD
Searing sounds from The Seeds – not just the group's well-known material on GNP, but lots of obscure non-LP tracks, b-sides, and even some late gems recorded for MGM! The sneering, gritty quality of the group really comes through on these tracks – tight numbers that pack a heavy punch ... (Rock) read moreCD
A deep selection of rarities by the mighty, mighty Seeds – sessions captured in the mid-to-late 60s when the garage rock/proto punk pioneers were finding their mangled psych sound! We'll come right out and say that this is most certainly not a good point with which to start listening to the ... (Rock) read moreCD

Zbigniew Seifert is best known on these shores as a jazz violinist – for fusion records he made in the 70s – but back at the start, he was a hell of an alto saxophone player – as you'll hear on this set of rare early recordings! Seifert's got this very deep sense of tone on his ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Rare Afro Rock from Nigeria's Semi-Colon group – and it's an astonishingly strong record!

(Global Grooves) read moreCD
A beautiful document of the work of Sevda – a cool Swedish group from the early 70s, and one who mixed together equal parts jazz and Turkish music!

Shades Of Brown —
S.O.B. ... CD Cadet (Japan), 1970. New Copy ...
Amazing soul from Chess Records – and an album that almost feels like some lost small-label soul set, or a batch of rare funky 45s!

Great Bud Shank album, in which he's paired with two different groups on the two different sides of the record. Shorty Rogers holds the lead with him on one side, and Bill Perkins is on the other. Shorty's playing is good, but Perkins is fantastic here. Him and Shank's playing is the stuff that ... (Jazz) read moreCD
