Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pretty hip stuff, with a definite Coltrane influence – and Larry Young in the group on organ, along with Billy Cobham on drums and Armando Peraza on congas. Titles include "Naima", "A Love Supreme", "Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord", "Meditation", ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Ok, so you were once embarrassed to have this in your collection – and sold it off so your buddies at college wouldn't make fun of you. Now, though, you treasure it as a crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting.)
Wild! The enigmatic Santo & Johnny play the hits of the Beatles – instrumental style, in their classic sound that mixes steel and regular electric guitar! The tracks are generally a lot more lively than their hit "Sleepwalk" (not on this album) – and the record also ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a very light stain at the bottom.)
Sublime work by the Santo & Johnny team! You probably know their monster hit "Sleepwalk" – the cornerstone of this early album, and a fantastically moody blend of electric and pedal steel guitar, with a slow spacey surf sound that captivated millions of earholes when it first ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Trippy late 60s pop from Peter Sarstedt – almost folk-rock, but with a fuller, more mind-bending style that kind of recalls Donovan, or the host of other less-remembered artists who picked up from Dylan and took things in a headier direction! The production is really wonderful – with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has light wear, some seam splitting, and a sticker spot.)
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of Boz Scaggs most soulful albums thanks to production from Johnny Bristol, and arrangements from HB Barnum! Titles include "Slow Dancer", "I Got Your Number", "Hercules", "Take It For Granted", and "Pain Of Love". (Soul, Rock)LP, Vinyl record album
Scandal featuring Patty Smyth —
Warrior ... LP Columbia, 1984. Very Good ...
Early work by Scritti Politti – a mix of punk and funk, with songwriting that's a lot stronger than you'd remember if you only knew the later hits, and an overall style that's quite compelling, and well worth all the early Brit press attention these guys used to get. Worth it alone for the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Future ... LP GNP/Crescendo, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ...
A seedy psych Future – as it was foretold by The Seeds, circa '67! The Future kicks off with a dreamy intro – as Sky Saxon waxes on with some spoken word backed by gentle, harp-like strings a little bit of organ before it takes flight – a heady clue that this one's gonna amp up ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, missing inserts. Cover is stained, peeled, and flaky on the bottom 3 inches, with a split bottom seam.)
One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Shadows Of Knight —
Gloria ... LP Dunwich, 1966. Near Mint- ...
One of the finest rock moments to ever come from the Windy City – a raw, nasty little record that perfectly sums up the Dunwich ethos! Titles include their classic "Gloria" – plus "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "Bad Little Woman", "Hey Joe", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pink label pressing. Cover has a cutotu hole.)
A sweet bit of Island-inspired pop – recorded here by an LA group of the late 60s, with inspirations drawn from the Carribean sands and the California sun! The group use a style that mixes together bits of late 60s South African pop, ala Hugh Masekela, a touch of steel band funk, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Paul Simon's mid 80s landmark – a record that brought together Simon's unique voice and pop folk songwriting skill with South African, Chicano, zydeco other global musical styles – held together by some of the best songs Simon ever put together! With lesser material, this would feel ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has some ringwear.)
We've gotta admit, this record sounds a lot better with the passing of time than we might have expected – thanks in part to some totally sweet Fender Rhodes, used often, and in all the best ways to pepper the tunes! Barry Beckett and Bob James handle the keys – and there's even some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, with a cut corner, and a tracklist sticker.)
(Marbled vinyl pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)
Nancy Sinatra —
Boots ... LP Reprise, 1966. Very Good ...
The album that put Nancy over the top – and one with lots of stellar Lee Hazlewood writing and production, and cuts like "I Move Around", "So Long, Babe", "Flowers On The Wall", and the title cut. Nice liner notes, too – with a conversation in which Nancy ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original tri-color mono pressing. Cover has some age spots on the back.)
Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood —
Nancy & Lee ... LP Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ...
Sweet moody stuff from the period when the duo of Ms. Sinatra and Mr. Hazelwood was electric in the studio. This was back when he used to call her "Nasty" through the headphones in the vocal booth, and when the two of them put out such spooky spooky material as "Some Velvet ...

(Orange & brown label pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)
A classic blend of fusion, rock, and so many other styles – heard here in the groundbreaking debut of Sky! The group features musicians from a surprisingly wide range – the strongest of which is acoustic guitarist John Williams, who'd already had a great run of classical recordings for ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing. Includes original inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
A surprisingly nice little record from this soulful rock group that featured Donny Gerrard on vocals! The album's got a strange spacey approach to the music – using moog pretty heavily to create some nice effects on the album's compressed production style. The album features a nice take on ...

Among the best of the best of early Patti Smith albums – the Easter LP from 1978 – also her biggest hit ever! Easter splits the difference between accessible, if rawly impassioned rock & roll and more raucous and in yer face rebellious poetry. There's a stylistic gulf between the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sublime early work from Robert Wyatt and crew – a psychedelic accented jazz rock classic that never gets old – and a visionary set that inspired a generation! The heavily fuzzy guitar sound is transcendent on Volume Two – with sudden jazzy changes, augmented by horns, and all ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Joanie's second album for Warner Brothers – and a date that features some especially nice backings from Neal Hefti, who helps swing Sommers into some great jazzy territory, but always with that playful Hefti touch that we love so much! Instrumentation is always interesting, even underneath ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Heavy rocking, with some nice drums – the kind of record that's kept the Sons in more crates than you'd think over the years! The set's a massive 2LP jammer that really overflows with niceness – often done in a heartfelt, blues-tinged rock style that's got traces of Little Feat and The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original rainbow label pressing, including the insert! Cover has light wear.)
A great little record – and perhaps the most soulful outing by this white rock band with a great talent for crossing over! The record was partially produced by Gamble & Huff, and partially produced by Rick Hall at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals – and it's a wonderful blend of the ...

(Cover has a cutout notch and some ring & edge wear.)
US pressing of an early Island Records classic – with cuts that include "Gimme Some Lovin", "Hammer Song", "It Hurts Me So", "Somebody Help Me", "Here Right Now", "Trampoline", and "Sittin & Thinkin". LP, Vinyl record album
The album where Bruce Springsteen really settles in as The Boss – gritty, chest-pumping anthems all the way here on this one! Born In The USA is so exuberant and full of life, even when Bruce is angry –as he is on the title track – his charisma is so strong that you'd be ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
