Possibly the rarest album by UK outfit pf Alan Bown! The group is named for founder, trumpet and flugelhorn player, and they got around bit earlier in an R&B-styled mode, then billed as The Alan Bown Set. Starting with this cool record, they committed to more of a psychedelic pop mode. That serves them well! The tunes are infectious, skewing the the accessible side of the psych sound. The drums hit hard and there's both punchy electric and chiming acoustic elements – usually with groovy organ and huge melodies. Outward Bown has never had much luck in the market place, and this 2CD UK edition aims to remedy that – with the full stereo version plus the bonus track "Little Lesley" on disc one, plus the full mono version with a few additional bonus tracks on disc two. Includes "Toyland", "Mutiny", "Sally Green", "Love Is A Beautiful Thing", "Violin Shop", "You're Not In My Class", "Technicolor Dream", one of the most unique covers of "All Along The Watchtower", "My Girl Of The Month May" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Parlophone/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy
A wonderful little set – and one with a sound that's as striking as its cover! This Locomotive shouldn't be confused with the Hungarian group of a similar name – as they've got all the rich complexity of the British scene right at the end of the 60s – an enigmatic style that's ... CD
Stud
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy
A stud of a record from this overlooked early 70s trio – just the kind that should have been kept around to sire a host of following records at the time! Sadly, these guys really never took off – but they're a hell of a great group made up from members of Taste and Blossom Toes, with a ... CD
Kossoff Kirke Tetsu Rabbit
Island/Ork (UK), 1971. New Copy
A short-lived group, but a great one too – a quartet that features post-Free work from guitarist Paul Kossof and drummer Simon Kirke – each of whom sing a bit too! But the real strength of the album comes from the wicked keyboard work of John Rabbit Bundrick – who also sings a ... CD
El (UK), 1960s. New Copy
A totally groovy batch of mid-to-late 60s London rock– wonderful work by Small Faces, Chris Farlowe, Billyy Nicholls, Australian Playboys, Amen Corner and more – plus loads of period interviews and soundbites from hipsters, movers and shakers of the era! The whole thing has the feel of ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
Completely wonderful work from John's Children – a group who are probably best-remembered as the early home for a young Marc Bolan, but who are already great enough on their own! John's Children have a madly playful approach – one that brings together the best elements of Brit beat and ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1964. New Copy
Andrew Oldham proves once again that his 60s pop music reach is wider than most – by taking on a whole host of tunes from artists he doesn't even have signed to contracts! The set's one of the most jaunty of the instrumental albums that Oldham recorded under his own name – and it ... CD
Made In England
Decca/Acme Gramophone/Lion (UK), 1969. New Copy
A bit of hard rock, a bit of freakbeat, and a plenty darn great album from Bulldog Breed – one that's got a lot more edge than you might expect from the slightly corny cover! The album's an obscure Decca release from the tail end of the 60s – and like some of the other more ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Wonderful easy grooves – from an orchestra leader who couldn't read a note of music! During the 60s, Andrew Oldham was probably best known to the world as the flamboyant manager of the Rolling Stones – but during the same period, or at least the earliest stretch of it, he also headed ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1965. New Copy
The second album from one of the most unique voices in British music in the 60s – a really sublime little set that moves beyond familiar folk, rock, and pop – to put Marianne Faithfull in a mighty special place that's all her own! Right from the very first note of her voice, Marianne's ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1967. New Copy
A seminal early album from Marianne Faithfull – and one that really shows the unique contributions she made to late 60s music in the UK! Faithfull was a key link between the older 60s British female singers – like Petula Clark, Cilla Black, and Sandy Shaw – and some of the hipper ... CD
Evening Colours (with bonus tracks)
CAM/Lion, 1976. New Copy
Amazing music from Laurance Vanay – actually a recording name for Jacqueline Thibault, a hell of a great keyboardist but an artist the label thought would be better off billed as a man! The sound here is halfway between the spacey experiments of Brian Eno and Cluster, and some of the more ... CD
Parlophone/Fresh (South Africa), 1971. New Copy
Rare South African power rock from Suck, who definitely do not suck – fierce, hard charging, heavily rhythmic jams with straight up killer drums and rumbling groove that we'd put up there with some of the more raucous stuff that came out of the Haight Ashbury scene! The bass, drums & ... CD
