We love the idea of spending the summer with Shelly Fabares – especially if it would sound as groovy as this rare gem from the 60s! Shelly's not the best singer you'll ever find, and the tunes here are hardly personal tunes from her heart – but the album's production and presentation ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing. Cover has a small name in pen on both sides.)
A later one from Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and The Faces – coming at a time when Rod was ready to bust out and be a superstar on his own – but the group still had one more amazing album together in Ooh La La! A great mix of trademark ragged rockers – plus a few tighter, less ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In a die-cut puppet cover, including the poster. Cover has a cutout notch.)
The wonderful voice of Marianne Faithfull in all its 60s glory – set up here with sublime arrangements from Mike Leander, in a style that's unlike just about anything else we can think of! Marianne's got a bit of a trill – as you might hear in female folk singers of the decade – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Fall at their peak – with some incredible singles, a rarity or two, and some incredible live BBC recordings – all from right around the time of This Nation's Saving Grace LP! We'd argue that The Fall was recording the best material of their career during this period, somehow ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the best 80s sets of acerbic, razor sharp postpunk from The Fall – 1985's legendary This Nation's Saving Grace – definitely a highpoint from one of their most creatively fertile periods. Sonically, it's one of their coolest records, ranging from heavy, sinister mood with enough ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Peak era postpunk genius from The Fall – compiling the now hard-to-find couple of EPs they released in 1984 – including material from the Wonderful And Frightening World Of. . .sessions! Stunningly, it's pretty much just as strong as what ended on on that above mentioned masterful LP. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Wonderful, frightening and one of the best ever albums by The Fall! The Wonderful & Frightening World Of The Fall was their first album for Beggar's Banquet, and it's got a cleaner sound than the late 70s & earlier 80s sets, but it's still as sneering as sinister as all get out. Still, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Father Yod & The Spirit of 76 —
Kohoutek ... LP Drag City, 1973. New Copy (reissue)...
Freaky cult rock from Father Yod & The Spirit Of 76 – with 2 side-long, untitled jams concerning the comet Kohoutek – or as the group hailed it, a big ball of cosmic energy, and a "thought projection from the eye of God"! Church-y organs, fuzzed out guitars and strange, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Din ... LP Time No Place, 2012. Near Mint- ...
Bryan Ferry, still going strong after all these years – and finding a new sort of sweet space that really seems to make the most of his aging vocal approach! Ferry's still very much in the best modes of his excellent solo records – especially the gems of the late 70s and early 80s ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Fleetwood Mac —
Tusk ... LP Warner, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP ...
Overblown for its time, and almost crushed under its own weight – but a record that's lasted surprisingly well over the years! Titles include "Sara", "Tusk", "Walk A Thin Line", "That's Enough For Me", "Brown Eyes", "Save Me A Place" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The only album ever issued by Floating Opera – a groovy batch of fuzzy psyche tunes produced by Herbie Mann for his Embryo imprint! The group have a slightly sensitive feel at times – a style that's got bits of the rootsier rock that was showing up on the scene at the time, yet still ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Burritos first LP, post-Parsons – and a pretty strong statement for the merits of the now unquestioned leader, Rick Roberts, and multi-instrumentalist new guy Bernie Leadon, who would later turn to the dark side and join the Eagles. Roberts penned or co-penned 7 of the albums 10 tunes, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, in the original textured cover. Cover has some wear and a split top seam.)
A weird one – vocalist PJ Proby joins the Focus lineup with Thijs Van Leer on keyboards and Philip Catherine on guitar! There's a number of instrumental tracks, with lots of nice proggy jazz moments! Titles include "Maximum", "How Long", "Eddy", "Night ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Singles, b-sides, and even some rare alternate versions – all served up as a stunning portrait of one of Canada's coolest groups of the 60s! 49th Parallel are a psych group at their core – but the range of material here has the group starting in garagey territory, and ending in some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Comes with bonus insert too.)
A wild little concept album from the Four Seasons – one that's packaged in newspaper-style cover, and which presents tunes that almost have that late 60s British "snapshots of life" approach to pop – particularly that put forth by The Kinks on Village Green Preservation ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the original fold-out cover, including the booklet.)
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
Very groovy work from John Fred & The Playboy Band – a group who are probably best remembered for their one big hit, but who have a heck of a lot more to offer! Fred and the group were a powerhouse from the southern circuit of the mid 60s – one of those combos who were mostly rock, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s pressing! An unusual copy – the front cover has the album with the Judy title, but the label and back list Agnes English.)
The gentlemen of The Fugs at "full orchestral strength" – brilliantly doing their thing at New York's Filmore East in 1968! Bawdy, comical poetry from one of the most influential groups – working here a larger scale, semi-unhinged rock and roll setting as opposed to the ... 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!)
The debut of the hugely influential Galaxie 500 – taking Velvets learned quiet drama and more jagged and terse influences from Joy Division and maybe a little early Jesus & Mary Chain, making them their own in a wonderful way – developing a sound that would establish long careers ... 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
