One of the best records of the post rock 90s – the masterful Directions In Music from Bundy K Brown, Doug Sharin and James Warden – a record that will sound fresh and insistent for as long as anyone's listening to it! This one stands up to the passing of time as well as any other instrumental avant rock album of any period. It's 8 untitled pieces with guitar, bass and drums at the core of the sound, but with subtle, angular touches and textural manipulation adding depth without it ever getting too arty or difficult just for the sake of it – there's not a unnecessary particle or element to be found. Mesmerizing all the way! (Thrill Jockey 20th Anniversary reissue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Now Again, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing reissue of this now-legendary album – once a lost psych oddity, but a set that's gone onto make plenty of waves over the years!

Rhino/Friday Music, 1966. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Very early live work from the Grateful Dead – pulled from the vaults and beautifully remastered – all to serve as a document of the rich creative energy of the group at their start!
