Mod madness from The Action – one of the lesser-known 60s groups on the London scene, at least on this side of the Atlantic – but one that we'd rank right up there with early Who or The Creation at their best! The Action have a soulful undercurrent that comes through both in the vocals ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Fly Away ... CD Acme Gramophone/Lion (UK), 1970. Used ...
A beautiful blend of folk and psychedelia – carried off with a bit of a Sunshine Pop twist as well! The recording's got a homespun sort of feel – one that's a lot less polished than other efforts like this of the time, in a way that really furthers the charming nature of the tunes. ... read moreCD

Agitation Free —
Malesch ... CD Spalax (Switzerland), 1972. Used ...
A sublime debut from German prog outfit Agitation Free – a set that's definitely free of agitation, and one that spins out in these long, winding lines with lots of Eastern influences! There's a bit of drone to some of the grooves, but never in a sleepy or sloppy sort of way – and in ... read moreCD
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
A great early 00s effort from Air – bravely moving towards a deeper, trippier sound! For 10,000 Hz Legend, they wisely don't try to replicate the comparably effervescent vibe of their late 90s classic Moon Safari. On some level, they're still working with some of moodier textures of their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram audiophile quality pressing – with download.)
Air going strong in the late 00s – still riding at a creative peak, years after breaking through – balancing inventive soundscapes and gratifying hooks as great as they've done since Moon Safari! Includes a couple a few tracks featuring and/or co-written by Jarvis Cocker – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Atmospheric electronic pop from Air – one that really steps up the spacier avant pop touches, after some of more ethereal, almost symphonic touches on both their proper albums and soundtrack work in the preceding few years. Lots of trippy electronic touches on this one, but still with the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great album from French combo Air – ingenious working on dual fronts – as the moody original score to Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, but it also works incredibly well as a stand-alone listening experience! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of ... read moreCD
A great album from French combo Air – ingeniously working on dual fronts – as both the moody original score to Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, and as an amazing stand alone listening experience! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their usual ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record that's got a much more dynamic feel than you'd expect from the title – no meditative sounds at all, and instead these really energetic rhythms that seem be years ahead of their time! The album leaps out in a frenzied undercurrent of drum and bass – not the later London mode, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A creepy cover, but a surprisingly charming little record – one that has The Alan Bown jamming nicely with lead vocals from Gordon Neville! Mel Collins handles production this time around, and he brings in some of the more lyrical touches that you'd hear on some of his better-known projects ... 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 moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
Aluminum Group —
Plano ... CD Minty Fresh, 1998. Used ...
A great little album of jangly pop tunes, and one that makes us recall our favorite moments of the C86 generation! These guys know how to write great little songs which unfold like pretty little flowers – not threatening, but always very pleasant, and very nicely produced. Tracks include ... read moreCD
Amboy Dukes —
Migration ... LP Mainstream, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)...
A really great moment for the young Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes – and a record that's so confident in its greatness, it begins the proceedings with a long instrumental, guitar-heavy jam – instead of any vocals! The Nuge really kicks it large on that cut – "Migration" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Recorded live at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York City, February 7-10, 1983. A HUGE amount of material! Includes the tracks "Say Hello", "Walk The Dog", "Violin Solo", "Closed Circuits", "For A Large And Changing Room", "Pictures Of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes all the inner sleeves. Box has some wear and a few creases.)
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Antoine ... LP Disques Vogue (France), 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
An overlooked 80s pop masterpiece – the first full album from The Apartments, one of the most blue-tinged groups of the decade! Ex-Go Between Peter Milton Walsh heads the group, which is a showcase for his wonderfully-penned songs – unique little tracks that show his Australian roots, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really unusual set from the Italian scene of the 70s – a record that still has some of the proggish traces of the underground at the time, but which also is clearly reaching out for new levels of expression too! There's definitely a lot of fusion in the mix – these long passages that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
