Leonard CohenPopular Problems ... CD
Columbia, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
The twilight renaissance of Leonard Cohen continues on Popular Problems – which joins the preceding Old Ideas album up on the top shelf with some of his best work of the past couple decades! The heaviness of the years in his voice is the album's second strongest element, after the inimitably phrased poetry of his lyricism – backed with angelic female backing vocals and spare instrumentation – led by keyboards, bass, light drums and guitar and some violin. Includes "Slow", "Almost Like The Blues", "Samson In New Orleans", "Did I Ever Love You", "Born In Chains", "You Got Me Singing", "A Street" and more. CD

Leonard CohenSongs From A Room (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1969. Used ... $3.99
The second album from Leonard Cohen – a more stripped down effort produced by Bob Johnston, with some really odd washes of sound on the outer edges of the sound – adding some slightly uneasy atmosphere that's paired masterfully with Cohen's moody pen. An album full of subtle triumphs, with a few of his more iconic songs and certainly in the upper regions of best work. Titles include the classic "Bird On The Wire", "Story of Isaac", "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy", "The Butcher", "You Know Who I Am", "Lady Midnight" and "Tonight Will Be Fine". Includes two bonus tracks – "Like A Bird" and "Nothing To One". CD

Leonard CohenSongs Of Love & Hate (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia, 1971. Used ... $4.99
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 acoustic guitar the focus, and some tasteful, more lush texture when the mood strikes – and oh so incredible wordplay and phrasing from the iconic maverick poet/songwriter. Classic bummers including "Avalanche", "Last Year's Man", "Dress Rehearsal Rag", "Diamonds In The Mine", "Love Calls You By Your Name", "Famous Blue Raincoat", "Sing Another Song, Boys" and "Joan Of Arc". Also features a bonus early version of "Dress Rehearsal Rag". CD

New Leonard CohenSongs Of Leonard Cohen ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Leonard Cohen's debut for Columbia, one of the most astounding first albums of its era, and to this day a towering achievement in both songwriting and myth making! The production is that perfectly haunting mix of sparseness and grandeur, with Cohen's lyricism piercing and penetrating wonderfully – his voice never sounded better, and this is certainly one of the great "lightening in a bottle" efforts that was hard to top by Cohen or anyone else in the more poetic upper levels of pop music. Includes ""Suzanne", "Master Song", "Winter Lady", "The Stranger Song", "Sisters Of Mercy", "So Long, Marianne", "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye", "Stories Of The Street", "Teachers" and "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

New Roberta FlackKilling Me Softly ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
Roberta Flack at her most masterful – balancing righteous soul at it's most spiritually resonant and more mainstream accessible melodies – from her classic years at Atlantic when she was forging a whole new sound that was a unique blend of soul, jazz, and spiritualism. Each of Roberta's preceding albums on Atlantic were increasingly incredible – and this one caps of a pretty incredible late 60s to early 70s run of top quality work. Includes the ever-fresh title cut, remade later by The Fugees in a version that cemented it's status with the next generation – plus a great version Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", "River", "No Tears (In The End)", "I'm The Girl", "When You Smile" and "Conversation Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the die-cut gatefold cover, with a few creases.)

JenniferI Can Remember Everything ... LP
Parrot, 1968. Very Good- ... $7.99
Jennifer Warnes is probably best known for her later fame singing hit songs from films, or for her work with Leonard Cohen – but here, she's just known as Jennifer – a lovely little pop singer with a slightly folksy, hippieish feel! I Can Remember Everything is an album that's got some really wonderful backings by Perry Botkin – in a way that mixes acoustic instrumentation with some fuller touches that lurk very nicely in the background – all in an approach that's not unlike that used on some of the best Nilsson or Donovan recordings of the late 60s. Titles include "Close Another Door", "Sunny Day Blue", "Chelsea Morning", "Leaves", "Park", "Tree House Of Gold", and "I Am Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of marker in one corner, a small split on the spine, and some fading on along the top seam and opening.)

McSweeney'sMcSweeneys Issue 27 ... Book
McSweeneys, 2008. New Copy ... $5.99 24.00
One of the coolest issues of McSweeney's to date – a special slipcover that features three different books inside! Our favorite is Autophobia – a sketchbook by Art Spiegelman that's a great change from some of his higher-concept projects – not only a great way to see his talents evolve in action, but also work with a much more free-floating sense of connection – like his earlier underground comix material! A second book is Lots Of Things Like This – which features graphic art from William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Roy Art Lodge, Leonard Cohen, David Mamet, Joe Brainard, Raymond Pettibon, David Shrigley, and many others. And the last book is the main one – with fiction by Ashlee Adams, Liz Mandrell, Mikel Jollett, Stephen King, and Larry Smith. A really great package – and proof again that McSweeney's is one of the most inventive presses around! Book

New Pearls Before SwineOne Nation Underground (second cover) ... LP
ESP, 1967. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Genius work from Pearls Before Swine – the haunting folk rock combo that was headed by singer/songwriter Tom Rapp! We'd place Rapp in a unique category with Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and a rare few other talents who could mix together styles and come up with a sound that transcended their generation. There's a wonderfully dark quality to this album that gives it a timeless feel – strains of avant instrumentation underneath the gentler sound of Rapp's voice, and an undying sadness that's matched by the feel of songs like "Another Time", "Playmate", and "Morning Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ringwear, light aging, a split top seam and half split bottom seam.)

Biff RoseThorn In Mrs Rose's Side ... LP
Tetragrammaton, 1968. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Tremendous work from Biff Rose – a near-lost singer-songwriter from the late 60s, barely remembered as the author of "Fill Your Heart" from David Bowie's Hunky Dory album – but an incredible talent that we'd rank right up there with Van Dyke Parks or early Randy Newman for sheer American brilliance! As in the work of Parks, there's a quality here that's completely unique – informed by the freedoms of the folk generation, but tuned with older-styled arrangements that while full, still manage to convey a sense of person and presence – as in some of the best early recordings of Leonard Cohen. And like Cohen, Rose has a really poetically-styled approach to his lyrics – far beyond the sardonic eye of folkies, or the indulgence of hippies – and infused with a sense of hope that crackles out of the tunes along with his own crackly vocals. Vocally, we'd almost link Rose to Bob Dorough for a sheer "oh what the hell I'm just gonna sing this" approach – and like Dorough, there's no silliness at all – but real sincerity where we'd never expect it, in a way that leaves us breathless. The set features arrangements by Rose, Arthur Wright, Kirby Johnson, and Nick Woods – on titles that include "Mama's Boy", "Angel Tension", "Molly", "The Stars", "It's Happening", "Buzz The Fuzz", and "The Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Tetragrammaton pressing.)

Diana RossRed Hot Rhythm & Blues (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1987. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
An overlooked gem from Diana Ross' 80s years – a record that's quite different than her Motown music of the 60s and 70s, but in a way that really shows the singer stepping out and trying something new! The album's maybe more soulful than some of Diana's previous albums – thanks to work from producer Tom Dowd – and the material is a surprising mix of songs, from sources as varied as Leonard Cohen, Luther Vandross, and Mick Hucknall! Ross does nice a nice job in reworking older soul classics – like Jackie Ross' "Selfish One" and The Drifters' "There Goes My Baby" – nestled in nicely next to more contemporary tracks that include "Dirty Looks", "Shockwaves", "Tell Me Again", "Shine", "Summertime", and "It's Hard For Me To Say". 2CD set features nice bonus tracks – including more retro remakes on "Mr Lee", "Sweet Soul Music", and "Tell Mama" – plus four mixes of "Dirty Looks", and three remixes each of "Shockwaves" and "Mr Lee".

VariousPhil Spector – Back To Mono 1958 to 1969 (4CD set) ... CD
Abkco, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4CD ... $11.99
The classic box set featuring so many of the biggest, best, and brightest pop, rock & soul singles of the late 50s and on through the 60s – those ubiquitous, but no less incredible productions from that crazy genius Phil Spector! Back To Mono features many of the best known numbers by the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers, Darlene Love, the Checkmates, the Crystals and many more – all of it with the appropriately dubbed Wall Of Sound that made Phil Spector the most famous producer of all time! We'd love to see an addendum someday featuring a set of Spector's productions for those idiosyncratic superstars of the 70s (the Ramones, Leonard Cohen, the post-Beatles) – but as a snapshot of an era, this box can hardly be beaten! 60 tracks on the the main 3CDs in the set – plus a 4th CD featuring the classic Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector album from 1963! Titles include "To Know Him Is To Love Him" by the Teddy Bears, "Spanish Harlem" by Ben E King, "I Love How You Love Me" by Paris Sisters, "He's A Rebel" by the Crystals, "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Going To Marry" by Darlene Love, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, "Hold Me Tight" by the Treasures, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Brothers, "River Deep Mountain High" by Ike & Tina, "Love Is All I Have To Give" by Checkmates and tons more – plus the immortal holiday disc featuring the Ronettes, Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, Crystals, Darlene Love and more! All that, and a thick, nearly 100 page booklet! CD
(Out of print. Includes original box and book.)

New Nancy WilsonCan't Take My Eyes Off Of You ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great album from Nancy Wilson – a set that still has her working with the jazzy undercurrents of her best 60s work for Capitol Records – yet also moving into some hipper, more sophisticated soul styles too! There's a really strong adult vibe to the record – not that Nancy didn't have one before, but this time around there's even more sense of personality and experiential depth that really comes through in the choice of songs – and in Wilson's wonderful treatment of them. Tunes that might be stiff in the hands of someone else are really transformed here – with added thanks to Phil Wright for great arrangements on the record. Titles include a version of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", Burt Bacharach's obscure "Waitin For Charlie To Come Home", and the tracks "Trip With Me", "This Girl Is A Woman Now", "Mixed Up Girl", and "Words & Music". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

New Chuck & Mary PerrinLife Is A Stream (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublimely orchestrated pop from the duo of Chuck & Mary Perrin – a rich blend of strings and folk guitar, done in a way that carries echoes of contemporary work from Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen. The style's a bit sweeter here than either Cohen or Drake – given the harmonizing that Chuck and Mary do on the vocals – but there's a depth here that takes the record way past a simple folksy sound, and which fleshes out the tunes with a brilliance that we can't describe accurately with words! The record's got a subtle genius that grows on us with each new listen – and the original album is augmented here by a bonus of 11 extra tracks, including rare demos! Titles include "Life Is A Stream", "Eversince", "Horizons", "Pickin Up The Pieces", "Little Lady", "Mildred Metz", "As Long As I'm With You", "Corrine", and "On You Alone". CD

New Bill FayTime Of The Last Persecution (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Deram/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The heady second album from Bill Fay – much more introspective and moodier than his first outing for Deram, and a session done in tight collaboration with British guitar legend Ray Russell! Russell's got Fay working here with a much smaller group than on the first album – a collection of jazz-influenced players that includes Nick Evans on trombone, Tony Roberts on reeds, and Alan Rushton on drums – all working with Russell's guitar in an intimate, slightly folksy setting. Fay's songwriting and vocals are darker than before – as can easily be told from the titles of tunes like "Don't Let My Marigolds Die", "Dust Filled Room", "Pictures Of Adolf Again", and "Til The Christ Come Back". But somehow, Fay manages to pull the whole thing off beautifully – with none of the cliches or heavy-handed styles you might expect, really working in a transcendent mode that reminds us of the best of early Leonard Cohen.

New Pearls Before SwineBeautiful Lies You Could Live In (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most perfectly formed albums ever recorded by Tom Rapp's enigmatic group Pearls Before Swine – a record that does an incredible job of skirting between Rapp's earthy sense of the planet's passing, and his ambitions for larger forums of expression. The core group is lightly folksy – with strong use of acoustic guitar that goes far beyond any folk rock cliches – plus some additional arrangements that feature contributions from the team of Bob Dorough and Stu Scharf, who seem to have a habit of appearing on under-discovered gems like this one, and making them sound all that more hip! The whole thing's great – filled with beautiful songs that should have been as over-recorded as the best by Tim Hardin or Leonard Cohen – with titles that are even better, too! Tracks include "Snow Queen", "A Life", "Butterflies", "Simple Things", "Freedom", "She's Gone", and "Island Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

New Peter WalkerHas Anybody Seen Our Freedoms? ... CD
Delmore, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime solo work from Peter Walker – a hell of a guitarist with a very edgy sound, and a vocalist with this dark tone that almost takes us back to some of the moodier moments from the early Velvet Underground! The combination is amazing – very deft, complicated lines on a Gibson Hummingbird steel string guitar – mixed with these moodily poetic lyrics sung starkly in a voice that's completely unique – often bursting out with the same energy as the movement of the guitar passages – ebbing and flowing with this subtle but amazing power! The approach is hardly folk, and has a darkness that goes way past most overstated records of its generation – a really essential record that maybe blows away our favorites from guys like Tim Hardin, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and John Fahey. Titles include "Grey Morning Sun", "Wonder", "Fifty Miles", "Me & My Lady", and "Pretty Bird". CD
