A great document of the brilliant wit of the young Randy Newman – recorded in a nice stripped-down setting! Titles include "Tickle Me", "Lover's Prayer","Maybe I'm Doing It Wrong", "Davy The Fat Boy", and "Lonely At The Top". LP, Vinyl record album
Ambitious recordings by the group – recorded earlier, and issued a bit late in their career. Lots of long tracks, with full-on keyboards from Keith Emerson – on versions of Tim Hardin's "Hang On To A Dream", Dylan's "My Back Pages", and Sondheim/Bernstein's "Ame ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked 60s pop gem from Kenny O'Dell – a great mix of twangy vocals and Sunshine Pop production – all served up with a really unique sort of sparkle! In another world, Kenny might have been a country singer – but here, he's working with some cool Cali backings that push O'D ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A slightly warmer sound than before from OMD – an album of well put together pop tunes that still hold true to the simple basis of their roots! At this point, the group's really got their sound down wonderfully – and they've also learned how to write slightly better pop hooks than ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Raw postpunk electronics from OMD – not necessarily as dark as work from groups like Cabaret Voltaire or early Human League, but with a nicely stripped down feel that showed that the punk ethos could be filtered down to the world of Kraftwerk and some of the more overblown electronicists of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Epic pressing in the grey & orange cover, which has ring & edge wear.)
Was he the reincarnation of Elvis? Only his mother knows for sure! And even despite that, the whole thing's not a bad batch of rockabilly groovers – put together by Shelby Singleton. LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow vinyl pressing. Back cover has a promo stamp.)
Pacific Gas & Electric —
PG&E ... LP Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ...
An early 70s album for Columbia by PG&E – a really strong set with great rock & soul groove in the best style of some of the other Bay Area crossover groups from the time! The line up here is augmented by some positively soaring backing chorus vocals credited to the Blackberries ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A gritty little gem in the Gram Parsons/Burritos catalog – mostly covers of classic honky tonk tunes! Many of the tracks were recorded for what would have been an honest, earnest, hard country album that was never fully realized – eventually paired with a few other tracks of similar ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Genius work from Pearls Before Swine – the haunting folk rock combo that was headed by singer/songwriter Tom Rapp! We'd place Rapp in a unique category with Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and a rare few other talents who could mix together styles and come up with a sound that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, some seam splitting and a small peeled spot in one corner.)
A seminal album from the American underground of the late 70s – the debut of Pere Ubu, bursting forth from the Cleveland scene with a sound to challenge the greatness of anything coming from New York or LA at the time! The album's not exactly punk, not exactly art rock, but has strong ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rare Columbia Records work from Carl Perkins – a full album of sharp rockabilly tracks, with titles that include "Ready Teddy", "That's All Right", "Where The Rio De Rosa Flows", "I Got A Woman", "Jenny Jenny", and "Hey Good Lookin". LP, Vinyl record album
It's a long way from The Mamas & The Papas by this time for Phillips – standing on the beach on the cover, all bedraggled in a dirty hat and coat, with a long beard, and a worn-out look on his face. The tunes reflect that image nicely – a batch of Laurel Canyon folksy numbers that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful bit of funky folksy rock – one that has Shawn Phillips working with members of The Headhunters, including Paul Jackson, Bill Summers, and Mike Clark. The best of the cuts may well be "Hie Away", one that juxtaposes Phillips' artsy folk vocals against some smooth jazz ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a partially unglued top seam & some light wear.)
One of Webb's greatest LPs for Decca! The trailblazing, rebellious streak that Pierce burned in the 50s had pretty much subsided by this point, and the sound became more polished. Not to turn in our ragged outlaw credentials, but it's a whole lot sweeter to swallow, too. Eddie Arnold he ain't ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Promise ... LP Threshold, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a small split on the bottom seam.)
(Shrinkwrap has some small tears. Cover has a cutout notch.)
Pink Floyd —
Animals ... LP Columbia, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ...
One of our favorite Floyd albums ever – a lot more subtle than The Wall, but with a focus missing from Wish You Were Here, too! Titles include "Dogs", "Pigs (Three Different Ones)", "Sheep", and "Pigs On The Wing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some wear on the top seam.)
A brilliant bit of psychedelia – still as fresh today as it was many decades back – and the crowning achievement of Pink Floyd during the early Syd Barrett years! The album's got all the best elements of the group firmly in place – the penchant for long-jamming tracks that still ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing on Tower. Cover has a split bottom seam held with duct tape, splitting on the spine, and some wear.)
Pink Floyd —
Ummagumma ... LP Harvest/EMI, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
(Cover has a cut corner and remnants of a price sticker.)
Plant And See —
Plant & See ... LP White Whale/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1969. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)...
The rare late 60s album by Plant And See! The record is a great mix of psych and soul released on White Whale – the adventurous label home of fellow funk rock/country soul genre buster Jim Ford – and another essential gem! Led by Native American guitarist and lead vocalist Willie ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Iggy's third album for Arista – one of his more straight-forward sets of rockers, for the most part – but Iggy being Iggy, it's still pretty edgy stuff for a rock album on major label in the early 80s! Includes "Pleasure", "Rock And Roll Party", the wacko "Eggs ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
