4.50 10

Weird and wild sounds from this early 80s French group – a set of tracks that supposedly each represents a different hallucination by a 6 year old girl! Given the sound of some of these cuts, we'd be more than inclined to agree with that claim – as most of the music is pretty darn trippy, often instrumental, and served up in a blend of heavy keyboards and spacey guitars – produced with a finish that's more mid 70s Germany than the early 80s recording date of the album – more proggish than post-punk, if you know what we mean! Titles include "Theme De La Drogue", "Theme Du Genie", "Proper's Reggae", "Theme De La Bagarre", "Flashes", "Depart Du Genie", and "Christelle".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Strawberry Rain, 1973. New Copy
A sweet folksy trio with a very personal feel – singing here on a set that was recorded in a Canadian basement in the early 70s, and hardly ever circulated at all! Yet the sound of the trio is anything but basement-like – very thoughtful, and with this amazing blend of melody and ... CD
Vanguard/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy Gatefold
A wonderful lost gem from the legendary Vanguard Records – a set issued in the 70s, but with the best independent spirit of the label from the decade before! Bob Frank is a very unique songwriter – and has this amazing ability to paint these personal little pictures in song – ... CD
Golden Pavilion (Portugal), 2014. New Copy
A contemporary set with a folksy twist – but one that really fits the older style of the mostly-reissue music we usually hear on the Golden Pavillion label! The vocals are especially great – with this sort of ancient rasp that almost takes us back to early Palace Brothers material ... CD
LHI/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy
Sublime girl group sounds from the great Lee Hazlewood – the complete recordings of Honey Ltd – an obscure Hazlewood project from the end of the 60s! The style here combines all the depths of Lee's own music with some of the sweeter Sunshine Pop sounds you'd expect from the cover ... CD
Harlan County
Sundown/Light In The Attic, 1969. New Copy
Damn! Here's a record we wish we'd been treasuring for years and years, but it came into our lives more than 40 years after it was recorded, released and largely forgotten – a masterpiece of funky country rock & soul from Jim Ford! '69's Harlan County is a record that brings so many ... CD
Dunhill/Future Days, 1972. New Copy
Bobby Whitlock finally gets his due – in a massive set that reissues the first two solo albums of this key player who worked on the albums Layla and All Things Must Pass! The self-titled Bobby Whitlock is a lost landmark in early 70s roots rock – the first solo album from Bobby ... CD
Sunbeam (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Really amazing early work from the team of Dennis Lambert and Craig Nuttycombe – a duo we'll love forever for their sublime At Home album on A&M, heard here in a huge set of demo recordings before that record! The tracks are hardly the unformed stuff of most demos – and given that ... CD
Only Lick I Know
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy
A very unusual second album from Chris Spedding – one that came out quite a few years after his first solo set, and definitely shows the result of Spedding's countless work on other rock, jazz, and soul sessions! There's still a rootsy, personal feel to the music – but there's also a ... CD
Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1987. New Copy
Maybe one of the most fully-formed albums from Pyrolator – and one of the most tuneful as well! The record still has all the playful electric bits we loved in the first three Pyrolator records, but there's also more lyrics, and an overall sense of melody too – guitar and keyboard lines ... CD
Trouble In Mind, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A pretty amazing record from this Texas up-and-comer – an artist who's got this way of bridging past and present, folk and rock, all with a timeless sensibility that could make this album at home in just about any record collection! The tunes are simple and stark, but have this really ... CD
Nachtstucke
Egg/Bureau B (Germany), 1980. New Copy
Amazing early music from Asmus Tietchens – and just the kind of record that shows why his talents at the time were so unique! Tietchens has a way of bridging two different generations of experimental electronics – the late years of the German prog scene, and the newer wave of ... CD
Der Funfte Himmel
Audiplex/Bureau B (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy
Some of the most tuneful music we've ever heard from the enigmatic Asmus Tietchens – but a record that still shares much of the darkness of his other albums too! The tracks here are all played by a small combo – Das Zeitzeichenorchester – a group that's heavy on synth keyboards ... CD
