Beautiful work from the duo of Allan Fraser and Daisy DeBolt – a pair who are only getting recognized all these many decades after their initial recordings – thanks to a wealth of unheard material like this issuing from the vaults! Side one features the blue-tinged "Zero + 22 & ... read more7-inch, Vinyl record
New millennium work from the legendary Free Design! And surprisingly, the album's pretty darn great. It really picks up where the group's last recordings of the early 70s left off – modernizing the sound slightly, giving it a mid 70s LA groove, but still staying very true to the group's ...

A wild batch of instrumental psychedelia – with plenty of avant garde touches thrown in! This is the sort of record that always restores our faith in major labels – and it makes us realize that no matter how many Elvis Presley albums RCA was selling in the 60s, there was also room to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic percussion pieces from this ultra-cool New Zealand ensemble of the 70s – a group who take their name and inspiration from the Scratch Orchestra of Cornelius Cardew – but who also work in a more intimate setting, with lots of instruments of their own creation – with a ...

The second great Fugazi album, or first, depending on how ya want to define define "album" and how self-righteous you are in that opinion (don't know about you, but it's difficult for us to think of 13 Songs as a compilation) – but it's great all the same! Loud, angry and punchy in ... read moreCD
A classic example of Lower East Side 60's freak out. Recorded by renowned filmmaker, musicologist and trouble maker Harry Smith. Includes the tracks "Slum Goddess", "I Couldn't Get High", "Seize the Day", and the suprisingly beautiful "Nothing". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s pressing, with deep groove. Back cover has ads for ESP albums up to 1028 and wear.)
One of the most fully-formed albums from The Fugs – still quite hippy dippy, but with a focus that's sometimes missing in their other work! And despite the somewhat major label placement of the set, there's arguably even more power here than on the group's earlier indie sides – thanks ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Quark ... LP Alfa (Japan), 1978. Very Good+ ...
Not "funky" as in the world of funk and soul – but a nice little rock album with a nicely rootsy vibe – well-written songs, and a down-to-earth feel that's a nice change from some of the smoother groups of the time! These guys are tight, but never too slick – and have a ... read moreCD
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

This is the US issue of the 1969 album that Serge and Jane Birkin cut together, and every track is a groovy French classic, of the sort that made Serge a legend! The arrangments are amazing, and feature some of the weirdest instrumentation ever heard on a pop record – especially one that was ... (French, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: VINYL HAS HEAT DAMAGE THAT CAUSES THE FIRST TRACK ON EACH SIDE TO SKIP – OTHERWISE VINYL IS VG+/NM.)
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's ... (French, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The milestone 20 year anniversary issue of cosmic music magazine Galactic Zoo Dossier – #10 overall and the first new issue in 4 years – "a gift from the psychedelic godz" and well worth the wait!

A still fresh blast of indie pop perfection from Game Theory – a mid 80s effort that's as timeless as anything they ever recorded!

Guitar Star ... LP Celestial Sound (UK), 1978. Very Good ...
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to ...

An album that bills itself as "acoustic songwriting filtered through the futuristic acid trip that is the current Southern California beat scene" – but a set that's also much more than that as well! True, there's some sweet songs nestled in the mix – vocals and guitar that ... (New Grooves, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An album we come back to more and more over the years – a bit more subtle than some of the other Gabriel-era Genesis records, but in a good way! Titles include "Aisle Of Plenty", "More Fool Me", "Firth Of Fifth", "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Bobbie Gentry groove gets kicked up a bit more than before – thanks to some larger arrangements that almost bring a funky country approach to her music – and which seem to give her voice an even more soulful setting than before! Bobbie's still got the charms of her earlier, more ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreCD
A never-issued full album of tracks from Gerry & The Holograms – a very cool duo from the Manchester scene of the post-punk years, and one who work here in a beautifully electronic mode that reminds us of the work of Der Plan, Pyrolator, and some of our other favorite early 80s German ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful step for UK jazzman Mike Gibbs – a musician who was part of the same big wave of late 60s creative talent that included Mike Westbrook and John Surman – but who really finds his own voice here on this album for the Bronze label! For years, there was a real dancing ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreCD
Allen Ginsberg is probably best known as a poet and political force in the 60s and 70s – but during the latter decade, he also entered the studio as a recording artist too – and managed to turn his ideas into some surprisingly groovy tunes!

Padre ... CD Jazz The New Chapter (Japan), 2016. New Copy ...
A beautiful project in which singer Isis Giraldo works with poems penned by her father – Ruben Dario Giraldo – and transforms the words into these dark-tinged jazz tunes, with a quality that almost takes us back to some of the most experimental 70s work by singers like Sheila Jordan or ...

A weird little record that's a bit hard to peg – not really jazz, but also not really anything else as well – kind of it its own special category that fits the "keyboard fantasies" title!

The glorious mid 70s run of the Glitter Band – some of flashiest, catchiest grooves to come out of the British glam pop scene of the time – with their complete Hey!, Rock & Roll Dudes, Listen To The Band And Paris Match albums plus bonus tracks in a great little 4 CD box set! Much ... read moreCD
Sweet guitars, creepy keyboards, and even a bit of funk from time to time – all wrapped up beautifully in this vintage horror soundtrack from Goblin! There's a bit less rock here than on other Goblin albums – and instead, there's almost a John Carpenter-like sense of spareness that ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreCD
One of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map!

One of the strangest records you'll ever buy! Even on our storied pages this one's a bit of anoddball to describe – kind of a sound play of words, songs, noises, and lots of odd effects – an effort of classic rock proportions, but the brainchild of Lol Creme and Kevin Godley after ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US white label promo, including the booklet and printed inner sleeves. Box has light surface wear and a small tear on the bottom edge.)
A really well-done collection of work from The Goldebriars – the sublime harmony folk ensemble that was the key pre-Millennium project from Cali pop genius Curt Boettcher! The style here is both timeless and firmly tied to the 60s – a beautiful blend of male and female vocals in the ... read moreCD
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful collection of overlooked work from Vivien Goldman – a singer who's perhaps best known for her work in Flying Lizards, but who also had ties to other important post-punk acts of the time – including The Slits, On-U Sound, and Public Image – all of whom help out on these ... read moreCD
Supreme guitar wizardry from Pepeu Gomes – a Brazilian musician who would have been huge, had he ever gotten any sort of big exposure up here in the US! The set's from 1978, but it's got a sharp, clear, clean quality that reminds us much more of those first few years of guitar albums that ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the first albums on the legendary Brain label – and a record that's often cited as one of the founding forces of the Krautrock sound in the 70s! By the time of this album, Gomorrha are a very well-oiled group – with requisite roots in beat and prog modes, but a sound that's ... read moreCD
A group with a biblical name, but a sound that's very down to earth – thanks to strongly soulful vocals from Peter Otten, whose English language contributions really make the record shine!

Some of the most beautiful sounds ever crafted from Manuel Gottsching – work that's a lot more tuneful and fluid than some of his material with Ash Ra Tempel – and which maybe has more of an 80s vibe overall! That's not to say that Gottsching's gone in for electro pop – just that ... read moreCD

One of the holy grails of British folk at the end of the 60s – and one of those records that really shows why the UK scene was so different than the US at the time!

The seminal debut of The Grateful Dead – a record that was maybe as important to the American psychedelic scene as the first two albums by Pink Floyd were to the UK!

Longform Grateful Dead at its best – a set from the group's earliest years, but already showing their strength in terms of live improvisation and instrumental creativity – proof that the sort of things that bootleggers lived for didn't always just happen in the 70s and 80s!

The early 70s hard psych holy grail – Morly Grey's Only Truth LP – a tripped out classic that'd been bootlegged over and over!
