A stunning spinoff from the first incarnation of King Crimson – a brilliant record from the team of Ian MacDonald and Michael Giles – both of whom move into territory that's quite different than their work with the more famous Fripp-led group! There's definitely elements here of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A masterpiece from the legendary SF rocker Steve Miller – and a perfect summation of the years of blues, soul, funk, and rock he'd been soaking up in the Bay Area scene – served up here with an edge that's still very firmly in place! Miller was already plenty great before this set, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has pieces of clear tape on the top seam and a small sticker on front.)
Jonathan Richman and his new crew of Modern Lovers may not have rolled at faster miles per hour by the time of this second album for Berserkely – but the album is still nearly as essential as the legendary debut is! Jonathan is still fronting wry, punchy three minute proto-punk pop tunes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a light stain at the bottom.)
An incredible first album from The Moody Blues – way way different than any of their later high-concept work, and much more in the best soul and R&B-drenched material of the UK mod scene of the time!

(Blue label stereo pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)
The debut LP from home recording legend R Stevie Moore – recorded over a couple years in mid 70s and originally pressed in a quantity of just 100 copies on Vital Records in '76 – a genuine progenitor of all so many eccentric & otherworldly DIY albums to come and possibly the rarest ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a sticker on front, and anti-theft sensor on back.)
Maybe the greatest album ever from Van Morrison – and a set that broke into a whole new side of his talents!

Mott ... LP Columbia, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ...
Mr Gasser & The Weirdos —
Surfink ... LP Capitol/Sundazed, 1964. Near Mint- (reissue)...
Way way more than the novelty record you might guess from the cover – and instead a great lost chapter in the LA studio scene of the 60s! Not that we're trying to fault the image on the front – because it's a great pic by Ed Big Daddy Roth – but the music in the grooves of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pretty bluesy rock from one of the hip groups on ABC's progressive Probe imprint. The tracks are electric, clearly Chicago-inspired, and have a raunchy feel on most numbers. Titles include "Good Love", "AC/DC", "Blues Jam", "Ginger Man", "Big Boy" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Why the heck don't they make records like this anymore? The whole thing's incredibly groovy – a blend of Sunshine Pop and vocal harmonies – put together with a high-art theory, but grooving with some really cool late 60s backings! There's a great drummer in the group who really makes ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Neu! ... LP Astralwerks, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
Electronics and rock stripped to its bare essentials on the first and extra outstanding Neu album – an avant classic and arguably admissable to the list of the most important rock albums ever! Neu! was recorded with Conny Plank, delivering the prototypical Krautrock goods in all its motoric ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A classic set from these groovy guys – with tracks that include "Warm Baby", "Elf Song", "I'm Here Now", "Woman"," I'm Just Waitin", "You're Gonna Be Mine", and "Love You So Much". LP, Vinyl record album
New Order take a slightly sweeter turn for this mid 80s set – but still never lose the charm that won us from their first few records! There's a warmth here we might not have expected in the immediate post-Joy Division years – and a catchy tunefulness on some of the biggest crossover ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Arguably the most perfect record ever from New Order – a stunning second full length set that has the group emerging from the turgid depths of the early post-Ian Curtis years, and before the schmaltzy pop of the John Hughes generation! The electronics are wonderful – definitely a few ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Later Factory US pressing, in the die-cut cover.)
"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, with lipstick labels and Sterling stamp, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear, a peeled spot and tape along the top seam.)
The second in Mickey Newbury's American Trilogy – recorded when Newbury was at Elektra Records, a label that was apparantly as unable to find an audience for him as Mercury was a few years earlier – but all these years later it stands just as beautifully of a leftfield bit of spacious, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A big, lush and moody set of standards by the great Harry Nilsson – with Harry's charismatic, unrivaled vocals in peak form – and add just a little touch of the oddball touches he was most famous for to that point! At this point in the early 70s, probably the least hip thing a singer ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Brilliant stuff – and exactly the place to start with Harry Nilsson! Long before his style had become cliched – or before it was copied by too many others – Nilsson cut this mad album of wonderful little songs – sort of a cross between folksy singer-songwriter work, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Harry Nilsson —
Point! ... LP RCA, Early 70s. Very Good ...
One of greatest moments of genius by pop vocals eccentric Harry Nilsson – the classic early 70s "story" album The Point – perhaps is most imaginative work!
