The second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's quite similar to his own solo albums over at Capitol! As with those, there's a bold, spacious sort of instrumentation here – richly orchestral, but also quite funky at times – punctuated by great drums from Earl Palmer, bass from Carol Kaye, keyboards from Don Randi, and guitar from Howard Roberts – who's really tripping out nicely here! The work uses the Jewish Kol Nidre mass as its conceptual locus – but really takes off with plenty of tripped-out Axelrod flourishes that make the whole thing a fair bit more psychedelic than anything you'd ever hear in temple. Titles include "Holy Are You", "The Adoration", "Our Father, Our King", "Kol Nidre", and "General Confessional".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Island, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Puzzle
Poppy, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Way more than just the standard psych album of the time – and instead a richly-orchestrated album with sounds as complicated as the MC Escher cover image! Ron Frangipane and Brooks Arthur both helped out in the studio – and the set's got a clarity of vision that's way different than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kama Sutra, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A definite hard attack from Dust – a set that really lives up to its Frank Frazetta cover image at the best moments – but also has some surprising acoustic elements, too! Dust are way more than just the usual hard rock trio of the early 70s – as they mix in pedal steel and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Loaded
Cotillion, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The end of the road for the Velvets – but also one of the group's longest-lasting legacies! The sound is tighter than on earlier albums, with a bit more of a somber post-fix approach to rock and roll – one that really points towards the direction Lou Reed would take in his own work, ...

Probe, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Dark-edged psychedelia from Steve Morgen – a record that's awasy in hard drums, heavy guitar, and a really aggressive sort of sound! There's a nicely fuzzy, nicely acid quality to the record – one that has the guitar and vocals sometimes tripping out – but still always pushed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heads Up
Liberty, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Heavy rock from a group who definitely live up to their name! The Heads work in a messed-up mix of late 60s rock styles – all pretty straightforward, but with elements of soul bubbling underneath a heady brew of psychedelic guitars and darker production. The set was put together by George ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most beloved country rock albums of all time! Grievous Angel is likely to have cemented Gram's legacy even if he didn't pass away before it's release – it's really that good – mixing mournful honk tonk laments, bleary-eyed barroom rockers and soul searching lyricism in a way ...

Reprise/ORG, 1990. New Copy (reissue)
The final album by The Replacements – and a nice one, even if it's closer to a debut solo album for Paul Westerberg than it is to the rest of the 'Mats oeuvre! This is a classic example of an album with strengths we either refused to acknowledge back in the day as Replacements classicists, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the most perfectly formed albums ever recorded by Tom Rapp's enigmatic group Pearls Before Swine – a record that does an incredible job of skirting between Rapp's earthy sense of the planet's passing, and his ambitions for larger forums of expression. The core group is lightly folksy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monster Planet (180 gram pressing)
Dual Planet (Australia), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A totally great little record that really lives up to the image on the cover – home-crafted sounds with a very sci-fi sort of feel – all cool and spare and moogy, with an approach that's almost like some private pressing take on the electronics of the 70s German scene! The record's an ... LP, Vinyl record album
