A nice change in sound for Debbie Harry – thanks to Chic production from Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards – who really help the solo singer find a groove that's quite different than her work in Blondie! The style's a mixture of the funky club that Chic did so well, with elements that lean a bit more towards an early 80s rockish dancefloor – almost with a vibe that echoes some of the UK imports trickling over to these shores at the time, but with a definite New York vibe underneath! The setting gives Harry's vocals a great way to hit a more playful nature – that sound that was creeping in a bit in Blondie, but which some folks thought was wrong for the group – and Chris Stein is still on hand to bring in some street-sensitive riffing guitar. Titles include "Backfired", "Military Rap", "Oasis", "Surrender", "Chrome", "Jump Jump", and "The Jam Was Moving". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "Backfired (special long version)", "The Jam Was Moving (extended)", and "Inner City Spillover (extended)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of our favorite contemporary pop bands – and one of the few who can really truly live up to the best styles we love from the American 60s and the British 80s – all without sounding hokey or cliched at all! There's a care of songwriting that takes us back to early Prefab Sprout at ... CD

Safe As Milk (mono version)
Buddah/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy
Mindblowing music from Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – a record that's got plenty of garagey grit at the core, but which also has a heady freak rock vibe overall! The 1967 album really captures this perfect moment – one when so many artists like Don Van Vliet had their feet in ... CD

Sunset/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy
Seminal 60s surf sounds from Adrian & The Sunsets – a smoking little combo who've got a razor-sharp sound on both tenor sax and guitar! The group work here in this cool echoey spacey – that key early Cali way of recording a combo like this that made all the instruments sound so ... CD

Melanie & Me
Strawberry Rain, 1975. New Copy
Really spare, laidback sounds from Simon Jones – material used in a mid 70s Australian film, but a record that's more than strong enough to stand on its own! Jones has this trippy style, but one with a bit of an edge, too – kind of a long-haired version of folk with fuzz, but recorded ... CD

Great stuff from one of our favorite soul vocalists of the 60s! We love Deon Jackson – we love his sweetly honest vocal style, we love his songs, and we love the great production he gets from the legendary Ollie McLaughlin! This album is the only one he ever cut – and it's a ... CD
