Slow-burning, though fully-enthralling rock from Codeine – the great and short-lived early 90s band that paved the way for countless groups to come – given due respect as the icons they are by The Numero Group! Codeine is properly cited as a major precursor to groups like Low and other so-called "slowcore" acts, but there's really nothing mellow about Codeine's sound. A narcotic haze hangs over the record, that's for sure – the band name is an apt one – but it's tense and dynamic vibe that's not at all sleepy! Includes "D", "Gravel Bed", "Pickup Song", "3 Angels", "New Year's", "Second Chance", "Cave-In", "Cigarette Machine", "Old Things" and "Pea". Numero's double vinyl version includes a full LP of bonus tracks: "Castle (Demo)", "Skeletons (Demo)", "3 Angels (Demo)", "Corner Store (Demo)", "Summer Dresses", "Pea (Acoustic)", "Second Chance" (Demo), "Pickup Song (Demo)", "Cave In (Demo)" and "Kitchen". This great 2LP version of the much-loved 1991 album features restored sound from the original masters, comes in a heavy duty gatefold, with an insert booklet of extensive notes and photos. Also includes a CD with all of the tracks.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Heads Up
Liberty, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Heavy rock from a group who definitely live up to their name! The Heads work in a messed-up mix of late 60s rock styles – all pretty straightforward, but with elements of soul bubbling underneath a heady brew of psychedelic guitars and darker production. The set was put together by George ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Afternoon
Straight, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Incredible stuff – and one of Tim Buckley's greatest albums! The record's got a style that's a wonderful mix of folk and jazz – using acoustic guitar on most tracks, but also throwing in some vibes by a young David Friedman, which gives the record some warm chromatic hues. Buckley's ... LP, Vinyl record album
