Massively heavy sounds from A Bolha – a Brazilian group who were previously known as The Bubbles, and backed up Gal Costa during the Tropicalia years – but who work here in a fuzzy, bassy groove that's totally great – definitely an heir to the headier sounds of the UK scene at the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A later live set by the pioneering funk-steeped punks A Certain Ratio – a surprisingly terse set that finds the group operating as a well-oiled machine! It's compiled from cassette recordings that the group culled on its 1985 US tour, apparently when they were opening for New Order – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
ACR's tightening things up a bit by this point, but still sounding quite nice! "Life's A Scream" is actually a pretty catchy dancefloor number – not as scratchy/punky as earlier work, and with a clean and fluid groove that's quite soulful, yet still has the darker touches of ...

The swaggering, hard grooving and hard rocking debut of Aerosmith! While "Dream On" gets as much or more rock radio play than any song should ever need, it's actually pretty easy to overlook just how good the rest of the record is. They may borrow the bluesy swagger of the Stones and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Aerosmith's second album – and a prime slab of badass mid 70s rock – coming close to, maybe even equalling Toys In The Attic as ultimate Aerosmith badassery! It's got a tighter, puncier sound their debut – courtesy producer Jack Douglas – who would continue to produce ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing record from the Dutch psych underground of the dawn of the 70s – in a nicely expanded 2CD set – with the original album and bonus tracks on one disc, plus their 1969 demo-recordings and unedited live-in-the-studio performances from the album-sessions on CD2! The band has a ... read moreCD
Rare singles from this ultra-cool Turkish singer – including many tracks that are b-sides of vintage 45s, and maybe even trippier than the album material we've heard before! The work was recorded in the mid 70s, but there's much more of a late 60s vibe going on here – from the trippy ... (Global Grooves, Rock)read moreCD
An early 80s album from Turkish legend Edip Akbayaram – served up in a style that's more keyboard-oriented than some of the guitar-based Arabesk rock of the 70s – but in a mode that's still pretty darn trippy overall! The keyboards have an approach that's maybe a bit more understated, ... (Global Grooves, Rock)read moreCD

One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements!

Surprisingly great work from Steve Alaimo – hardly just the album of simple twist covers that you might expect, although there's definitely a twisting vibe to the record too!

Freaky fuzzed out madness – and a much-needed look at the work of Davie Allan & The Arrows – kings of the 60s biker soundtrack! Davie first started out with sort of a Ventures-esque approach – jamming fast and hard in a surf-inspired guitar instrumental mode – but as ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Wonderful work from Johnnie Allan – and tracks that definitely live up to the "swamp" promise in the title! The vibe here starts with 50s southern rock – a bit of twang from rockabilly and country – but there's also a heavy New Orleans influence in the rhythms that ... read moreCD
The Allman Brothers at their best – and a key 70s set that may well have the group working at their peak! All their best southern roots are firmly tied together here – not just the country-touched approach to rock that was the group's calling card, but also their ties to some of the ... read moreCD

Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s!

Early work from Ted Nugent – working here as the searing lead guitarist of the mighty Amboy Dukes! The Nuge doesn't sing on the set, but his guitar is definitely in the spotlight on most numbers – ripping out with a rawness that beats his later superstar work, and which is free to ... read moreCD
The folksy image on the cover hides the heavyweight 70s talents within – a surprising group lineup that includes Steve Katz, Eric Kaz, and Doug Yule – working here with some top-shelf production from George Martin!

Freaky fuzzy guitars from the great Jerry Cole – working here under the name of The Animated Egg – not a real group, but a one-off studio project!

Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime!

Haunting music from Japanese singer Maki Asakawa – every bit as smoky and soulful as you might guess from her image on the cover!
