Odessey & Oracle

LP (Item 60668) Big Beat (UK), 1968 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 10

An incredible album – one of the greatest rock albums of the 60s, and a record we'd place right up there on the shelf next to Pet Sounds or Forever Changes! The arrangements are sublime – proof that the Zombies were growing way past just a simple Brit Invasion style, into a world of complicated orchestrations, subtle songwriting, and some of the most baroquely beautiful vocals ever recorded in the service of pop music! The whole thing's amazing – the kind of essential record we never tire of – and tracks include "Changes", "Care of Cell 44", "Rose For Emily", "Hung Up On A Dream", "Friends Of Mine", and "Butcher's Tale".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Chasing Rainbows
Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy
Weird and wild sounds from the Detroit scene of the late 60s – served up by a group who were scenemates of The Stooges and MC5, but never got the fame they deserved!

Big Beat (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Rare rock from the Japanese scene of the postwar years – but sounds that definitely have a universal appeal overall!

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!

Classic early material from these godfathers of the German prog scene – 1969's Phallus Dei – the first LP from the "II" grouping of the Duul commune! Phallus Dei encompasses everything from free jazz, to spiraling psychedelia and outright space jams – all graced with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Limonada
Sondor/Lion, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing little record from the free-thinking scene in Uruguay at the end of the 60s – a strange mix of styles, but a brilliant one too! Limonada only ever cut this one record, but it's a real masterpiece – a blend of 60s beat group instrumentation, candomble rhythms, and some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lysergic Sound, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Wonderfully trippy sounds from the end of the 60s – very underground work that goes way beyond any of the bigger psych acts of the time! Most of these tracks are pulled from rare albums, and a few were never issued at the time – and together, the cuts are awash in freak and fuzz, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning second album from Love – a set that's still without the fuller orchestrations and baroque touches of Forever Changes – but which already shows the group moving in that direction!

Sleepless Nights (180 gram pressing)
A&M/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A gritty little gem in the Gram Parsons/Burritos catalog – mostly covers of classic honky tonk tunes!

Episodes
Void, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Rare psych folk sounds from the late 70s! Episodes is really cool blend of acoustic and electric sounds, with the vocals, acoustic guitar and bass all handled by Soutar – backed by lead, often buzzingly electric guitar by Mike Tedesco, flute by Elyse Clark, and backing vocals by both (we ...
