LA psychedelia from the beginning of the 70s – kind of a stranger and heavier take on the kind of terrain staked out by The Doors – and with a singer named Jim, to boot! Singer Jim Beach rolls from a mysterious and brooding vocal style to a meaner growl – with a pair of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(#440/1000. Includes the bonus 10" and download card.)
A group with German origins, but one who also sings in English too – really soaring out over some wonderful fuzz-heavy tracks in the set! Hammond, piano, and mellotron all make key appearances here – held together by some searing guitar lines, and topped with soulful lead vocals that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One hit wonders – but oh what a hit! Friend & Lover's "Reach Out Of The Darkness" is a really unique little tune that brings together folksy vocals and funky rhythms – a solid jammer that brushed off the cobwebs of the aging folk scene of the 60s, and sprung into the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first appearance of the Frippertronics delay line built by Fripp and Eno out of a couple of tape decks. Somehow even though this is nearly pure process music, it manages to sound far from dated, cliched or boring – ambient bliss meets only slightly noodly prog guitar in a hall of mirrors. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Incredible early recordings by The Fugs – a set that captures the group at a time when they still had tremendous power and potential! The sessions were originally done for Folkways, then later sold to ESP – in a story that's painfully detailed in the liner notes – and the spare, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing – with special "Fugs Sur-Prize Package" under shrinkwrap!)
A rock record, at least from the vocal standpoint – but a set that's also got a very strong grounding in jazz – thanks to a lineup that includes Jason Adasewicz on vibes, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Jason Roebke on bass! Steve Dawson is in the lead on vocals – and has a raspy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record that some might call the last truly great Peter Gabriel album – and a key cap to his excellent initial solo run! The album's got a deeper feel than before – slightly richer colors, more spiritual themes, and arguably more of a sense of majesty – almost an echo of some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Don't mix these guys up with the bigger-name Genesis – because this combo doesn't feature Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel – and instead is an American group from the late 60s that works in a sweetly melodic approach to psychedelia! Some tunes are heavy on the fuzz, with guitars right out ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The rare one-off collaborative side project by Robert Smith of The Cure and Steven Severin of Siouxsie & The Banshees! Includes "Like An Animal", "Looking Glass Girl", "A Blue In Drag", "Punish Me With Kisses", "Relax", ""Mouth To ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Godley & Creme —
L ... LP Polydor, 1978. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
What a weird one! This strange little record is one of the few that the team of Lol Creme and Kevin Godley cut after leaving 10CC – and it's a melange of odd songs that take off from the compressed pop style of their former group. Some of the lyrics are a bit silly, but there's also some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)
A tremendous debut from this overlooked late 60s group from the UK – a powerhouse that would later go onto fuel bigger groups like Jethro Tull, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and Uriah Heep! This initial outing has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – still very rockish in the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The excellent first album by Goldfrapp! Alison Goldfrapp's voice had earlier added gorgeous, otherworldly color and texture to records by Tricky, Orbital and others – and her debut full length collaboration with Will Gregory as the band Goldfrapp really stands the test of time – and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sweet batch of sometimes droning, sometimes surprisingly melodic psychedelia from Growing Concern – one of the series of rare psych rock efforts release by the adventurous Mainstream label in the late 60s! Growing Concern took a more vocal approach to the sound than many of their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An early 80s album, but one that's definitely got the timeless feel of Gwydion's look on the cover – every bit what you might expect from a guy who calls himself The Faerie Shaman! The tunes are folksy, but with an ancient vibe that's a bit like some of the UK acid folk scene of the 70s, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing extension of the world of Terry Riley and LaMonte Young – taken in a whole new direction by Peter Michael Hamel for this rare early 70s album on Vertigo! The music is mindblowing – spare, minimalist passages that features unique instruments in unique tunings – played ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Bizarre is right – and incredibly hip too! This was the group's second album – and while it has a lot of similarities with the first, it's also a lot deeper of an expression of their strange blend of harmony vocals, sweet 60s pop, and the nostalgia for the early 20th century that was ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A dream – and the fab first LP by Harpers Bizarre! The group were one of the strangest pop ensembles operating in the seminal LA scene of the mid 60s – ostensibly a sweet harmony vocal group, but with a strangely childish approach that also had an ear open for the mind-blowing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label mono pressing. Back cover has some minor staining.)
Incredible sounds from trumpeter Jon Hassell – a really genre-defining record, and the start of a great run of music for years to come!

The debut of the mighty Hawkwind – spacey, yet blues informed rock from the very and of the 60s/start of the 70s – the dawn of space rock as we know it! These fellas looked into their minds eyes and what what they saw was eerie echoes, lumbering rhythms and trippy atmospherics grounded ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A hard hard rocker from Roy Head and his Traits – jamming in that burning blend of Texas roots and country soul that always made Roy so great! The sound here is a bit more rock-oriented than some of Roy's other albums – almost rockabilly at times – but it's also clear that he's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
