What A Beautiful Place
Reflection/Numero, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful early 70s debut LP from a then 20-year-old, Halifax reared Catherine Howe – produced and arranged by US jazz pianist Bobby Scott in a mode that manages to feel lush and opulent while never belying Catherine's warmth, intimacy and maturity – and quite possibly the best ...

One Of You
Mississippi/Little Axe, Early 80s. New Copy
Really compelling work from One Of You – a female singer from the Czech Republic who fled in 1968 – then emerged as a recording artist in the US during the big indie wave in the early 80s!

Move With Love
Country Flavor/Numero, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual bit of female folk from mid 70s California – not really country, but far from the sound of the LA scene too – a distinction that's probably made even stronger by the small studio recording of the record in San Jose! Kathy Heideman sings straight at some times, but has these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paradise Of Bachelors, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A real relic from the early days of Gay Liberation – and a record that's often viewed as one of the first openly gay country albums! The music's definitely in a country mode, but performed at a level that almost puts the message of the tunes first – kind of a playful, sing-song style ... LP, Vinyl record album

2 Tone/Chrysalis, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
The second great set from The Specials – music once billed as "revival ska" – but which has arguably gone onto have a bigger impact than the first wave of the genre! There's a rough edged quality to the music that's totally great – a rude boy aesthetic filtered through ... LP, Vinyl record album

All Our Own Work
Numero, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A young Sandy Denny, singing with The Strawbs in the years before she left to join Fairport Convention! This material predates the fame of all involved, but represents a key point in the UK folk scene – a time when there was still a bit more influence from US modes of earlier in the 60s, but ...

Blue Afternoon
Straight, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Incredible stuff – and one of Tim Buckley's greatest albums! The record's got a style that's a wonderful mix of folk and jazz – using acoustic guitar on most tracks, but also throwing in some vibes by a young David Friedman, which gives the record some warm chromatic hues. Buckley's ... LP, Vinyl record album
