One of the best early albums from Ash Ra Tempel! Here they bring vocals into to the mix for the first time, though it's still a spacious blend of slow-building atmosphere and spare dynamics that evolve into more feverish and intense maelstroms. The vocals of John L are another instrument, really – with gruff screams and moodier howls that echo the instrumentation impressively. The drums and percussion and incredible, with sax, organ, guitar and electronics. Work that bridges earlier psych to later experimental rock pretty fearlessly! Includes the "Light And Darkness" suite of " A) Light: Look At Your Sun" and "B) Darkness: Flowers Must Die" (originally spanning a side), plus the Schwingungen side "A) Suche" and "B) Liebe".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Mindblowing instrumentals from the early years of rock – hardly the conventional sounds of the time, and instead some really incredible tracks that seem to make as much use of early studio tricks as they do of the instrumentation! The blend of studio and music is completely cool on these ... CD
United Artists/Now Sounds (UK), 1968. New Copy
Wonderful sounds from a very groovy group – a mixed male/female ensemble who come off here with a surprisingly cool sound – kind of a mix of Sunshine Pop with some surprisingly dark undercurrents that definitely nod at the psych image on the cover! A few years earlier, these guys might ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy
A mighty musical tribute to the famous Good Vibrations record store – born in the heady Belfast scene of the 70s, and home to some great Irish punk on its own label! Yet the music here is not just punk, but also the sounds that inspired the store from the years before – a bit of reggae ... CD
United Artists/Atomhenge (UK), 1975. New Copy
A stone classic from the legendary Hawkwind – a set that's steeped in all their best space rock modes of the 70s – yet which also has a wonderfully sharp sort of focus too! Keyboards, guitars, and drums soar to the skies right from the start – prefacing an intensity that so many ... CD
Free Angela
Sound Of Soul/Secret Stash, 1971. New Copy
An incredibly righteous bit of soul – one of the few albums ever cut by 70s mellow soul genius Larry Saunders, and an amazing tribute to Angela Davis! Larry's got a fantastic voice – one that we'd rank right up there with Donny Hathaway or Marvin Gaye, and which is recorded here with ... CD
Fever
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... CD
Feeling Good
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1982. New Copy
Stellar sounds from the great Roy Ayers – an early 80s album for Polydor, but a set that's still got the wonderfully tight, wonderfully groovy feel of his late 70s albums for the label! Roy's really perfected his sense of balance by this time – and does a great job of balancing ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
One of the coolest, grooviest albums ever from Vernon Burch – an overlooked 70s soul genius who worked with countless others in the decade, and cut a handful of gems on his own! The set may well be Vernon's best, as it's got this really wonderful approach that mixes funky elements, jazzy ... CD
Flashback
Essential, 2013. New Copy
Jean Carne takes it back nicely here – serving up a surprisingly great batch of mellow soul tunes that really recall the brilliance of her work for the Philly International label! There's definitely lots of Philly elements in the music – no surprise, given that production is by Butch ... CD
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1981/1983. New Copy
Smooth and sophisticated 80s soul from O'Bryan – his first two Capitol albums together on one CD – thanks to the classic soul devotees at Expansion UK! Doin' Alight and the follow-up You And I are a great mix of smoothed out modern soul, bits of funk and classic soul touches. Most of ... CD
