Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 10

A pretty killer slab of heavily-thumping early 70s rock from Megaton – a group with a Sabbath-like and a sound that definitely matches it – plus a surprising bit of bluesy heat in the mix! The album's got an impressive sound, somewhat in the vein of Free – and like Free, the vocalist seems to have a secret stash of bluesy soul records underneath his bed – as well as other contraband! There's some pretty shameless riffs on Zep and other hard rockers of the era – and that actually kind of adds the seedy charm of the record. Tracks include "Out Of Your Own Little World", "Niagara", "Wanna Be A Hero", "Coo Cooki Choo", "Woman I'm Gonna Make You Mine", "Life Was Easy Yesterday", and "Tomorrow Never Comes My Way".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Some of the earliest recordings ever from prog rock legends Krokodil – a set that even includes a track they recorded at a commercial for Camel cigarettes! Most of the music is on a par with the group's later work on Liberty, but maybe a step back or two – with some leaner elements, ... LP, Vinyl record album

49th Parallel
Lion, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Lost pop psychedelia from the Canadian scene – with groovy arrangements that recall Nilsson, Donovan and the sunshine glory of the Association – plus some of the more driving efforts of groups like Love!

Sirio 2222
RCA/Lion, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A really stunning set from Il Balletto Di Bronzo – a group who clearly have the instrumental chops to take off in a proggish way, but really keep things interesting here by staying in a grittier, more straightforward groove! The power of the drums and guitars is wonderful – almost funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Refuge
Ovation/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A beautiful early 70s psych folk set from the angelic vocal and songwriting duo of Pat Gefell and Jo D Andrews – their Refuge album for Ovation in 1973 – highlighted by their gorgeous vocals, but committed with lovely, lightly soaring arrangements! Save for a solid cover of the Elton ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sea Ders
Groovie, Late 60s. New Copy
A great record with all the known recordings of the Sea-Ders (or Cedars) – a beat combo from mid-to-late 60s Lebanon – and a pretty much perfect mix of period rock & roll hooks and rhythms with Middle Eastern string buzz in place of a Stratocaster! The vocals are in English and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dreamies (180 gram pressing)
Wilmington Studios/Out-Sider (Spain), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A legendary album from start to finish – and easily one of the most compelling experimental sets from the 70s! Call it a "auralgraphic entertainment", or "an incredible mental experience" – both claims listed on the title – and you wouldn't even be getting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Decca, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc
Creation/Numero, 1987. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the moodiest music that Nikki Sudden recorded in the 80s – and that's saying a lot, given his other albums!

Joyful Noise, 2014. New Copy
It's been quite a few years since we last heard from Half Japanese, and we're definitely overjoyed at what we're hearing here – music that's as powerful and personal as the group were back at their start! At some level, we're amazed at how strong these guys still sound – rawer than ... LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists/Mute, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An early classic from Can – the first recordings with Damo Suzuki, and kind of the start of Can's more hypnotic sounds! Soundtracks found the group working for, you guessed it, film projects, but it's still pretty much a Can album rather than passages of more ambient score type music. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Separate Oceans
Numero, Mid 70s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold
Really great work from Ned Doheny – an overlooked talent on the LA scene of the 70s – one who had the tightest, smoothest touches of the best of the AOR generation – but a surprising undercurrent of soul as well! Ned's got that unique blend we find in a rare few artists from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sire, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
As great a rock & roll album as there's ever been! It's impossible to describe this record without sounding like a blow hard, but you really can't overstate what these four goony guys from Queens accomplished. 30-odd years of the most visceral pop music concentrated into 2 minute, 3 chord ...
