A massive collection of work from Beggars Opera – Vertigo Records giants who work here with a heck of a lot of great work on organ! The set features a fair bit of music from each of the group's four albums – Act One, Waters Of Change, Pathfinder, and Get Your Dog Off Me – plus some single tracks too – all wrapped together as a 2CD set that really shows a great progression in the group's style – from tripped-out and jamming, to tighter and more song-based – yet always with a soaring sort of energy in the end. The keyboards alone have a strength to rival Rick Wakeman's best work for Yes – and titles include "Passacaglia", "Memory", "Raymond's Road", "Festival", "Impromptu", "Fox", "The Witch", "Pathfinder", "Sarabande", "Think", "Time Machine", "Lament", and "Working Man".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A wide range of work from The Family Dogg – a UK group who were really inspired by the best Sunshine Pop sounds in the US, but one that also helped move the style strongly towards a 70s pop style too! The music is mostly pretty tight here – a mix of female and male voices (one of which ... CD

RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy
A walloping collection of singles from the hard-charging bubble gum glam era – tunes that go far beyond the more art school inclined sensibility of the Bowie/Eno/Roxy Music set – and more indicative of the giddy fun of the Bay City Rollers and Slade, mixed with the heavy crunch of T Rex! ... CD

Only Lick I Know
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy
A very unusual second album from Chris Spedding – one that came out quite a few years after his first solo set, and definitely shows the result of Spedding's countless work on other rock, jazz, and soul sessions! There's still a rootsy, personal feel to the music – but there's also a ... CD

Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy
One of the stranger jug bands of the 60s – one who emerged in the UK, a number of years after the big wave of such groups in New York – and with a vibe that's much trippier overall! These guys aren't entirely psychedelic, but were certainly born during that era – and really bring ... CD

Complete Mercury Singles
Mercury/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy
The complete singles of one of our favorite groups of the 60s – a completely wonderful sextet who started in harmony pop, but grew to do a whole lot more! The earliest cuts have Spanky & Our Gang resonating strongly with the best by The Association, Mamas & Papas, or other Sunshine ... CD

A groovy American International Pictures (which is to say charming and kinda seedy) beach movie from the mid 60s – starring Annette Funicello, Dwayne Hickman, Mickey Rooney, and Buster Keaton (!!!) – with an even groovier soundtrack! The Kingsmen really only did 2 songs on the set ... CD

Richard Page and his Pages group come on with a bit more force here on this second sweet set from the 70s – but they're still working strongly in the soulful blend of AOR rock and fusion they delivered on their debut!
