Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a seminal bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s. With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. Ok, maybe we're going out on a limb – but this record has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock albums of all time. Includes the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree" – plus the unreleased remix of "Cheree".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Poppy, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Way more than just the standard psych album of the time – and instead a richly-orchestrated album with sounds as complicated as the MC Escher cover image!

Blank, 1978. New Copy (reissue)

Mainstream, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The self-titled debut of Boston area psychedelic rockers Tangerine Zoo – with hard charging drums, heavy toned guitars, wailing vocals and sailing organ washes! Tangerine Zoo takes a fairly walloping, beefy approach to the late 60s sound – with a hazy, slower turn or two. A worthy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pure and lovely sounds from the early days of Durutti Column – music from a time when guitarist Vini Reilly's conception was quite fresh, and deeply personal – so much so, his music really stood out amidst the darker sounds of his post-punk generation!

Harvest/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderful departure for Kevin Ayers – an album that's a lot lighter and more whimsical than his original fame with Soft Machine!

4 Men With Beards, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Big Star's amazing Third (or 3rd if you please) – one of the best one-time lost rock albums of the 70s, if not ever – a record that was tough to find for years before finally becoming an acknowledged classic!
