4.70 10

The legendary rock instrumentalists update their first hit song this killer set from '64 – and better it! Walk Don't Run Vol 2 is a peak period effort from The Ventures – with gritty, groovy covers that show their range as well as any of their early-to-mid 60s albums. Much more than surf rock band, though their surf rock songs are as great as any – with organ soul flavored numbers, proto-garage and psych stormers and more. This is the group in full stride, and in full recognition that they were at the top of their game. Includes "The House Of The Rising Sun", "Diamond Head", "Night Train", "Peach Fuzz", "Rap City", "Night Walk", "One Mint Julep", "Pedal Pusher", "The Creeper", "Stranger On The Shore" and more. 12 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy
A slightly headier sound than before from Chad & Jeremy – music that's still in a great mix of Brit Invasion and Sunshine Pop, but which also shows a somewhat deeper sensibility too – a desire to reach past the simpler pop modes that first got the pair going here in the US! Chad ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
An amazing second foray into the world of punk rock 45s – and the British chapter to the previous American volume from Soul Jazz! Like the first set, the track selection here is superb – no overdone punk "oldies" or overplayed classics – and instead a great range of ... CD
Spark/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Rare gems from the late 60s UK Spark label – a small imprint founded by the Southern Music publishing company, as their own outlet for some of the cool compositions in their catalog! Many of these tracks were recorded in the basement of the company's London offices – often by the same ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
Our first-ever look at the unique pop scene in mid 70s Iceland – a batch of work that hardly ever got any global exposure at the time – but which really stands alongside some of the grooviest bits from other European nations in the decade! Lots of these cuts offer up a cool, compressed ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
A wonderful overview of the career of singer/songwriter Biff Rose – a true American genius we'd place in a category that few others can match! Rose has a style that's folksy, yet far hipper than folk – a biting, laugh-at-itself sort of approach that's never silly, but relaxedly poetic ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1979. New Copy
Glorious power pop from South London – driving work from the Exits! The spectre of early Elvis Costello hovers over The Exits, particularly in the vocal department – but the uber catchy hooks and buzzing guitars have more of an all purpose sheen. Strong stuff from the power pop ... CD
Columbia/Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy
Great work from The Peanut Butter Conspiracy – even tighter and more groove-happy than previous records – with a very hip blend of mod soul influences underneath their Sunshine Pop sound! There's a lot of Hammond bubbling up in the rhythms here, and the drums are nicely forceful too ... CD
Stiff/RPM (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
A great anthology of Rachel Sweet's entire Stiff Records output – including the complete Fool Around and Protect The Innocent LPs – plus tracks from rare 45s and hard-to-find compilations! We're surprised Rachel didn't breakout in a bigger way. Like fellow Stiff-ers Devo, she's ... CD
Ginger Baker's Air Force
Atco/Lemon (UK), 1970. New Copy
Out of the wreckage of Cream came some very hip grooves! Ginger Baker was the hippest of the group's 3 members – and although he's often credited by soul fans for his work with Fela, he should also get a hats off for his work with the group Air Force – essentially a 10-piece (which ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1960s. New Copy
One Track Mind, perhaps, but 30 hard grooving numbers from The Knickerbockers – uncommonly tuneful garage rockers with a Brit Invasion fix! The group is best known for "Lies" that masterfully hooky Beatles knockoff that became the group's big hit – but the tore off dozens of ... CD
Warner/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Mindblowing music from The Association – a heady double-length package that features every single the group ever cut for the Valiant and Warner Brothers label – which together make for an amazing evolution in sound! Although best remembered for their few soft rock hits, The Association ... CD
Polydor/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
One of our favorite Isaac Hayes albums from the post-Stax years – a wonderful late 70s set that has the man returning strongly to the mellow roots of his early solo years! Ike sounded great on his disco tracks at the time – but we really love his mature, laidback way of laying down a ... CD
