A record of pure genius and one of the greatest albums ever to come out of the British jazz rock scene – in an expanded 2CD package – with BBC and Peel Sessions, plus previously unreleased studio material! Matching Mole was a bit of a supergroup at the time – one that featured the piano, drums, and voice of Robert Wyatt next to the guitar of Phil Miller – topped off by additional piano, organ, and electric piano – in a wonderfully spacey, wonderfully mellow style that's never been matched again! If you dig the quieter, gentler side of Wyatt's work – or some of Miller's most intimate recordings on Virgin – you'll totally flip over the album – but even that's not giving it it's full due, because the sound is totally unique. Wyatt's vocals are wonderfully personal, and almost heartbreaking at times – handled with a fragility that few others of his generation had the courage to match! Titles include "Part Of The Dance", "Signed Curtain", "O Caroline", "Instant Kitten", "Beer As In Braindeer", and "Dedicated To Hugh But You Weren't Listening". Bonus material includes "O Caroline (Single Version)", "Signed Curtain (Single Edit)", the previously unreleased "Part Of The Dance Jam" (21+ minutes!) , plus "Horse", and "Memories Membrane", "Immediate Kitten" and "Marchides/Instant Pussy/Smoke Signal" from early '72 BBC sessions for John Peel and more!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the only full albums ever issued by the lovely Ruthann Friedman – a talent who's known both for her seminal 60s work as a songwriter in LA, and for a slew of unreleased tracks that never saw the light of day! This album's different – and is a lasting testament to Friedman's ... CD

RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
The mod sound of 60s London had a lot more to offer than just rock and roll – as you'll hear in this blistering collection of British R&B, soul, and blues-drenched tunes – mixed in with more familiar garage, early psych, and even a few post-colonial elements too! The package digs ... CD

HMV/RPM (UK), 1966. New Copy
The one and only album from Norway's Firebeats Inc – a set that barely made a dent in the 60s, but which has gone onto have legendary status over the years! The album's got a groove that's partially borrowed from the Brit Beat combos of the time – but also has this harder edge ... CD

RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
A walloping collection of singles from the hard-charging bubble gum glam era – tunes that go far beyond the more art school inclined sensibility of the Bowie/Eno/Roxy Music set – and more indicative of the giddy fun of the Bay City Rollers and Slade, mixed with the heavy crunch of T Rex! ... CD

Decca/RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A British singer of the 60s, but one who borrows a lot from American folk and country artists at the time – which makes for a really compelling blend with the groovy arrangements of the tunes! The range of tracks here really show Crispian St Peters reaching out to find a sound that's all his ... 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

Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy
One of the stranger jug bands of the 60s – one who emerged in the UK, a number of years after the big wave of such groups in New York – and with a vibe that's much trippier overall! These guys aren't entirely psychedelic, but were certainly born during that era – and really bring ... CD

Live At Winterland Ballroom
Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy
Heady work from Paul Butterfield's second great group – his mighty Better Days ensemble, heard here in a nicely unbridled live set from the early 70s! Paul himself is mighty great on vocals and harmonica – but the group's a very cohesive unit, too – with additional vocals and ... CD

Liberty (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
The Ventures live in Japan in 1970 – sounding every bit as sharp and searing as on their earlier albums, but with a trippier undercurrent as well! The tunes are groovier and fuzzier than ever before – and there's definitely some psych elements that come through in the cool tunings of ... CD

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold
Raw soul, heavy funk, snotty rock, and raucous R&B – all pulled from the legendary record collection of Lux Interior and Poison Ivy! The sounds here are the sorts that went onto form the blueprint for The Cramps – and the package is overflowing with rare gems that are hand-picked ... CD

Galaxies (with bonus tacks)
SFP/Lion, 1974. New Copy Gatefold
Totally wonderful sounds from Laurance Vanay (aka Jacqueline Thibault) – an album that's heavy on keyboard sounds throughout – including these really moody Hammond organ lines that are handled in a style that's a lot closer to work on Fender Rhodes! The album's neither jazz nor prog ... CD
