We're partial to the old stuff -- particularly the unusual, trippy, and underground!

A&M, 1994. New Copy 5x10" (reissue)
LP, Vinyl record album
HMV/RPM (UK), 1966. New Copy
The one and only album from Norway's Firebeats Inc – a set that barely made a dent in the 60s, but which has gone onto have legendary status over the years! The album's got a groove that's partially borrowed from the Brit Beat combos of the time – but also has this harder edge ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
A wide range of work from The Family Dogg – a UK group who were really inspired by the best Sunshine Pop sounds in the US, but one that also helped move the style strongly towards a 70s pop style too! The music is mostly pretty tight here – a mix of female and male voices (one of which ... CD
Death III
Drag City, Mid 70s/1980/1992. New Copy
A third album from Death – that legendary Detroit experimental trio – and one that's compiled from never-heard takes from their ill-fated career! Some tracks were recorded in Detroit in the mid 70s – and these are the grittiest, noisiest – with this really primal quality ... CD
Death III
Drag City, Mid 70s/1980/1992. New Copy
A third album from Death – that legendary Detroit experimental trio – and one that's compiled from never-heard takes from their ill-fated career! Some tracks were recorded in Detroit in the mid 70s – and these are the grittiest, noisiest – with this really primal quality ... LP, Vinyl record album
CBS/Now Sounds (UK), 1967. New Copy
A great step forward for The Cryan Shames – a group who started their career singing other peoples' music, but who emerge here with some great songs of their own! There's a brilliant Sunshine Pop feel to the whole record – but there's also some garagey elements that reflect the group's ... CD
Singles 1968 to 2002
Drag City, 1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The mighty Mayo Thompson has had some rich experiences in the global music underground – including time on the Texas psych scene of the late 60s, years in the UK post-punk world, a key role in the German intelligentsia, and a later role again here back in the US! This rich tapestry of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Coconut Hotel
Drag City, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Long-lost early work from Red Krayola – a set that's right on a par with their classic Parable Of Arable Land – but maybe even more experimental overall! The tracks are long, and the sound is very obtuse – much farther from rock than before for the trio – and even farther ... LP, Vinyl record album
Head In The Dirt
Innovative Leisure, 2013. New Copy Gatefold
Hanni El Khatib's superior second album for Innovative Leisure – mixing up raw, fuzzy garage rock stormers and raucous R&B influences even better than before! The blend of riff heavy garage and unshakable rhythms references Hanni's influences every step of the way, but the way go down ... LP, Vinyl record album

7-inch, Vinyl record
East Side Digital, 1994. Used
DGC, 1993. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)
Nirvana's final album – one that's as poetic as it is heavy, and as beautiful as it is brutal! In Utero's legacy gets greater and greater over the years, not only because its mastermind extinguished himself not too long after its release, but more than that, it's simply one of the greatest ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drag City, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy
The title certainly gets it right on this one – as the album's a lost "prequel" to the better-known work by Woo from the early 90s – a whole host of spare, stripped-down recordings from the mid 70s through the 80s – almost all of which show an even groovier version of ... CD
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy
One of David Bowie's most anthemic tunes of the 70s – served up here in two different original mixes! The limited picture disc offers up "Rebel Rebel" in all its glory from two different sides of the Atlantic – the original UK single mix, and the slightly different mix that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Singles, demos, and loads of lost bits from 60s UK freak beat combo turned psyche pop tunesmiths Wimple Winch – mid 60s odds & ends from group the group's earlier years as the Just Four Men, eventually to become Four Just Men, and finally Wimple Winch! The group's earlier years in the ... CD
Omnivore, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Rare versions of legendary recordings by Big Star – and also the soundtrack to the feature length documentary Nothing Can Hurt Me – with demos, alternate mixes and more from Big Star proper and leaders Chris Bell and Alex Chilton! The alternate versions of the most classic and most fan ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drag City, 1975. New Copy
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... CD
Drag City, 1979/1992. New Copy (pic cover)
An incredible pair of tracks from Motor City soul punk pioneers Death – with "North Street", recorded in 1979 – and "We're Gonna Make It", recorded in '92! "North Street" is a raw, urgent rumbler that's primal and punky, though rooted in Detroit R&B ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Elektra, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
The fiery debut of the Stooges! It isn't quite the out-there masterpiece that Fun House would be, and it's not quite as aurally blistering as Raw Power (we might be able to blame producer John Cale for this) but it's still one of the most powerful rock records of the era! Iggy & the boys ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. New Copy 3 LPs (reissue)
One of the most iconic rock and roll shows of all time – and quite famously, much more than than a final concert by an esteemed band – it's actually more of a rock, pop, folk, blues and soul summit, featuring The Band as the house band. This landmark live album has always been one of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carlin/Cherry Pop (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
A very unusual chapter in the career of singer Hazell Dean – an artist who's best known for more outgoing pop work in the UK, but a vocalist who shines surprisingly strong on this batch of Burt Bacharach tunes! The album's quite obscure – as it was originally only released on the ... CD
Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Rare pop gems from late 60s Capitol Records – all tunes that have the fuzzy, freaky touches of the psychedelic generation – but which also come across with a catchy, tuneful style overall! The mix of modes is wonderful – handled here by top-shelf talents that include arrangers ... CD
Reprise/ORG, 1990. New Copy (reissue)
The final album by The Replacements – and a nice one, even if it's closer to a debut solo album for Paul Westerberg than it is to the rest of the 'Mats oeuvre! This is a classic example of an album with strengths we either refused to acknowledge back in the day as Replacements classicists, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch & Go, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Mid 80s greatness from Big Black – the Steve Albini, Santiago Durango, Jeff Pezzatti lineup (and Roland, of course) – right up there with their best stuff ever. Includes "Racer X", "Shotgun", "Ugly American", "Deep Six", "Sleep!", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A damn legendary record from the last years of Chess Records – and for good reason, too! Archie Whitewater were a group that was years ahead of its time – a rock combo, but one with real genre-crossing sensibilities that made them perfect for the experimental styles at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire, 1983. New Copy
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Go Away From My World
London, 1965. Very Good
LP, Vinyl record album
Takoma, 1968. Very Good+
LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1969. Very Good 2LP
One of the grooviest of the groovy Warner label comps – with some great text in the true Warner ethos of the time, and four sides of music, titled "Soft Arty Underbelly Side", "Irreverent Hippie Creep & Rock & Roll Side", "Many Faces Of Pop", and "Jum ... LP, Vinyl record album
Moving Waves
Sire, 1972. Very Good
LP, Vinyl record album
IRS, 1986. Very Good+
LP, Vinyl record album
I Think, Therefore I Am
Rare Earth, 1970. Very Good+
A strange little album to come out on Motown at the beginning of the 70s. Dean was a studio fixture who worked for the label, and slowly got a chance to cut his own material for them. The tracks on here are kind of a country soul pop blend of styles – and Dean's not a bad singer, although ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1981. Very Good Gatefold
LP, Vinyl record album
Sun Sessions
RCA, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Some of Elvis' earliest – and best – recordings! ... LP, Vinyl record album
