A great record with all the known recordings of the Sea-Ders (or Cedars) – a beat combo from mid-to-late 60s Lebanon – and a pretty much perfect mix of period rock & roll hooks and rhythms with Middle Eastern string buzz in place of a Stratocaster! The vocals are in English and the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Spooky, spiritual psychedelia from The Search Party – and what an organ-drenched, fuzz guitar-laden, distinctive little psych search it is! The Search Party is led by a (then) bonafide reverend by the name of Nick Freund, and the group seeks to make genuinely religious music in the psych ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Truly top notch reissue from Lion – with heavy vinyl and sleeve and in insert with notes and photos.)
Avant folk rock from Seaven Teares on the Northern Spy label – and pretty compelling mix of tripped out acoustic folk sounds and more experimental touches! The vocals of Charlie Looker and Amirtha Kidambi are right out front and the mix – backed by their own guitar, harmonium and a bit ... read moreCD
A groundbreaking debut from The Seeds – one of those albums that seemed to come out of nowhere back in the 60s, then went onto have an undeniable influence on music for decades to come! The music is gritty and garagey right from the start – but also has a sinister focus that really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Searing sounds from The Seeds – not just the group's well-known material on GNP, but lots of obscure non-LP tracks, b-sides, and even some late gems recorded for MGM! The sneering, gritty quality of the group really comes through on these tracks – tight numbers that pack a heavy punch ... read moreCD
Amazing electronics from a pair of German brothers – two musicians who work at a level that's somewhere between the analogue experiments of the previous decade, and the space rock modes of the 70s Krautrock generation! The album's got a very unique feel – an approach that's really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record that initially circulated in under-the-counter status as a bootleg Sex Pistols album before the release of Never Mind The Bollocks – and a set that serves as a much-needed prequel to that punk rock classic! The tracks here are all studio material – certainly a bit rougher than ... read moreCD
The ultimate version of one of the greatest moments ever from The Shadows Of Knight – a famous live set recorded in the Chicago suburbs in the mid 60s – originally presented by Sundazed in the 90s, now expanded here with more tracks and even better sound! You'll know the group from a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Shanti ... CD Atlantic/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ...
A pretty hip blend of Indian music and more conventional rock instrumentation – and a surprisingly overlooked record for the time!

Elliott Sharp & Carbon —
Tocsin ... CD Enemy, 1991. Used ...
The debut album from Shoes – a cracker of a first record from any band, but a set that hardly made a dent at the time – given that it was only pressed in a limted run of 300 copies! That doesn't stop it from being a real moment of greatness, though – because the set sparkles with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The never-issued album by this surprisingly great Texas group from the 70s – a mainstream rock combo who'd no doubt be blasting out of classic rock radio stations today, had they gotten their chance back in the 70s! Shotgun gigged hard in the Lone Star scene of the time, and really honed ... read moreCD
A tremendous first album from Sid Rumpo – proof that the Aussie scene of the 70s had some very well-developed work going on, even if it never got the global notice it deserved! Sid Rumpo are one of a few Aussie bands that were grounded in an appreciation of blues and roots, but really took ... read moreCD
An unusual folksy sextet from early 70s England – a group who look like a bunch of hippies on the cover, but who come across with a really ancient feel on record! The music has lots of echoes of older English, Scottish, and Irish folk – and when the group harmonize, they sound ... read moreCD
Sweet girl pop from the early 60s – a treasure trove of work from the under-discovered Margie Singleton! If Margie's last name seems familiar, that's no coincidence – as the cuts here were produced by Shelby Singleton, later of SSS International fame – recorded in Nashville in a ... read moreCD
Sir Douglas Quintet —
Mendocino ... LP Smash, 1969. Very Good- ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the very best rock albums of the late 60s from overlooked genius Doug Sahm and his Sir Douglas Quartet – a brilliant hybrid of the laconic country and rural rock ragged glory that was piping through so many under appreciated groups at the time (and went on to be bastardized by crap ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Lost legendary work from Guy Skornik – a heady set from early 70s France, and proof that there's a hell of a lot of greatness to discover on that scene! The album's got a blend of psych fuzz and deeper ideas that's not that far from Serge Gainsbourg – although the overall presentation ... read moreCD
A classic blend of fusion, rock, and so many other styles – heard here in the groundbreaking debut of Sky! The group features musicians from a surprisingly wide range – the strongest of which is acoustic guitarist John Williams, who'd already had a great run of classical recordings for ... read moreCD
The big second album from Sky – a record that's twice as long as the first, and which gives the group even more room for instrumental explorations! As before, the guitar sounds here are both acoustic and electric – played by both John Williams, the virtuoso musician with classical ... read moreCD
Slik ... CD 7T's (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ...
The bright 70s Scots pop of Slik – their first and only album – packed up with a wealth of bonus tracks! Slik was led by vocalist/guitarist Midge Ure – who went on to take part in some pretty noteworthy projects in the years to come – and with the Slik he worked on a ... read moreCD
Still one of THE standout records of the post-punk years – the simple but effective dub statement of three London ladies with decidedly left wing politics! The record's in a format that would later be copped by dozens of groups – one that mixes together post-punk and heavy dub – ... read moreCD
Slovenska Gruda —
Pesmi ... CD Dezela/Atlantide (Germany), 1983. New Copy ...
A wonderfully moody group from early 80s Slovenia – a trio who have a feel that's a lot like the best British acid folk of a decade before – served up in a really timeless blend of vocals and acoustic instrumentation! Most numbers feature lyrics sung by all three members of the group ... read moreCD
Smashing Orange —
1991 ... CD Elephant Stone, 1991. Used ...
Sublime early work from Robert Wyatt and crew – a psychedelic accented jazz rock classic that never gets old – and a visionary set that inspired a generation! The heavily fuzzy guitar sound is transcendent on Volume Two – with sudden jazzy changes, augmented by horns, and all ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the best albums we've ever heard from this funky rock group – kind of a mix of styles by groups like Average White Band, Sweetwater, and Tower Of Power. The album features the great funk track "Without Love", which begins with a monster break that has a very dark Eric B kind ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing! Cover has a cutout hole.)
Great work by one of the most compelling groups in the Kama Sutra bubble gum stable! Sopwith Camel always seemed a bit headier than their contemporaries – part Spanky & Our Gang type pop, part long-haired hipster rock – handled with some introspective touches that almost feel like ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a factory sticker, a split top seam, a half-split bottom seam, a bit of pen, some small stains, and a faded spine.)
A weird late 60s set from this California group – one that's got a rocking small combo feel at parts, but a partly rural sound too! The vibe's almost like some of the party groups that played the southern circuit in the 60s, but a bit more west coast too – never really psyche or fuzz, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful little record from the 70s – not nearly the cosmic set you might imagine from the title, and instead a warmly-produced album that's in the best 70s smooth mellow style! These guys would fit nicely in a collection next to Crosby Stills & Nash or America – as they've got ... read moreCD
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 ... read moreCD
Not just the hits from this wonderful 60s group, but some other great moments too – a mix of overlooked album tracks, unusual singles, and some of their charting material – all wrapped into an overstuffed set of 60s dream pop! The vocals are wonderful, and the arrangements are even ... read moreCD
A real turning point for Sparks – a set that has the duo of Russell and Ron Mael finding a whole new focus for their music on the UK scene! The style is a bit glammy at times – not in the execution, so much as the production – which has a great way of compressing the vocals up ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
US pressing of an early Island Records classic – with cuts that include "Gimme Some Lovin", "Hammer Song", "It Hurts Me So", "Somebody Help Me", "Here Right Now", "Trampoline", and "Sittin & Thinkin". LP, Vinyl record album
