One of the greatest albums ever from The Rolling Stones – a set that still draws on all the bluesy roots of their best 60s material, yet which also shows a sharper, nastier edge as well! The album shows the tremendous sense of focus and power the Stones had in this crucial late 60s stretch ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest groups that Phil Spector ever got his hands on – and one of the most infamous, too!

Two late 70s albums from this enigmatic Greek singer! Universum is from 1979, and has Demis Roussos at the end of the 70s – a decade that began with his trippy work in Aphrodite's Child, then had the singer hitting the clubs with disco soul, and ended with Demis becoming a huge international ... read moreCD
The incredible second album from Roxy Music – picking up right where the self titled album left off – ratcheting up the excitement even more thanks to Ferry's extra dramatic songs, Eno's unpredictable synthesizer and tape manipulations, and a driving approach to the performances by the ... read moreCD
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the ... read moreCD
Quite possibly the biggest early moment of US fame for Roxy Music – thanks to the classic "Love Is The Drug", which kicks off the album and is easily one of the group's best-known tunes of the 70s! The album tightens things up slightly from the sound of Country Life before – ... read moreCD
Really wonderful work from the Texas scene of the 60s – not the heady psych or garage usually associated with the state, nor the more Latin-inflected modes from the border – but instead a unique batch of music that feels more like work from either coast, and which comes across with a ... read moreCD
A great collection of unreleased recordings by the great, largely unheralded Arthur Russell – one of the key players in the late 70s/early 80s NY underground – whose influence can be found everywhere from the smoky disco of the Paradise Garage scene to the dubby, arrhythmic, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

An incredible chapter in the Arthur Russell story – and one that's not nearly as well-known as his club singles and art rock work of the 80s! The 2CD package presents some long-lost longer form work by Russell – instrumental pieces composed and recorded in the 70s and early 80s, most ... read moreCD
A wonderful set of unreleased Arthur Russell songs – great tunes that he cut in more of an eclectic singer-songwriter approach than some of his other work – emotionally upfront, understated material that is simply beautiful! The songs range from very stripped down and folksy on the ... read moreCD

An incredibly beautiful set of work from Arthur Russell – one of the few records to be issued under his own name during his tragically short life – and a hauntingly spare blend of vocals, hand percussion, and solo cello – recorded with more than enough echo to live up to the title! ... read moreCD
A group with an English name, but a sound that's right up there with the best Italian prog groups of the 70s – and an approach that may well be more ambitious than most! The album's got a spacious approach at the start – never a leap right into jamming, and instead this way of building ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

There's plenty of Latin influences going on – mixed with heavy fuzz from Carlos, and lots of jazz and funky touches too – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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

Conrad Schnitzler —
Blau ... CD Marginal Talent (Germany), 1974. Used ...
Moody electronics from Conrad Schnitzler – the icy cool Blau from 1974! On one level there's a minimalist drone – an ominous synthy current floating throughout– but on top of that are much more extroverted spacey soundcapes. One of the more haunting experimental synth albums ... read moreCD
Spacey electronic score to this bizarre German orgy film from the late 70s! Klaus is in a sparer mode than some of the mid 70s Tangerine Dream recordings – but the music is quite compelling, and the record only contains three long tracks – "Stardancer", "Blanche", ...

One of the darkest records we've ever heard from Klaus Schulze – his second set as a solo act, and one that's filled with all these really deep tones and very sub-level sounds! Both Klaus' organ and his electronics are really intent on hitting the lower end of the sonic spectrum – ... read moreCD
Bernie Schwartz —
Wheel ... CD Coburt/Zeitgeist, 1970. New Copy ...
A trippy gem from Bernie Schwartz – a figure who'd spent a number of years in the LA musical underground before stepping out in this solo set – which has a depth that belies all Bernie's experience on the scene! There's a heady vibe to the record that almost feels more like some of the ... read moreCD
The raw, though infectious debut of Aussie punks The Scientists – a vital salvo from the early 80s Australian underground!

Biz ... CD Thrill Jockey, 1995. Used ...
One of the most engaging earlier albums by the Chicago avant pop greats The Sea And Cake! The Biz has a reputation as one the looser, and more structurally sprawling records – but to honest, we don't really hear that – the drums are louder in the mix, the rhythms sink in deeply, Sam ... read moreCD
Freethinking, breezy avant pop greats The Sea & Cake's Moonlight Butterfly – an album that marks nearly 20 years in the band's history – and they're as uniquely appealing in the early aught-teens as they were in the early 90s! The group never disappoints, but this one is ... read moreCD
Trippy, trance-like sounds from Second Family Band – a large, loose collective of musicians with a style that starts somewhere in the spiritual jazz generation, but then stretches out in modes that feel somewhat like a weirdly organic version of prog! Instrumentation is both electric and ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Colored vinyl pressing – in a cool package that also has these weird die-cut corners – and the colored vinyl record is one-sided, with very nice artwork on the other side! Limited edition pressing.)
Great early work from The Secrets – a UK group that features early contributions from later singer/songwriter Clifford T Ward – but in a style that's much more group-oriented overall! Ward's already a hell of a songwriter – and loads of the cuts here are under-discovered nuggets ... read moreCD
Future ... LP GNP/Crescendo, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ...
A seedy psych Future – as it was foretold by The Seeds, circa '67!

Just Sold Out!
A groundbreaking debut from The Seeds – one of those albums that seemed to come out of nowhere back in the 60s, then went onto have an undeniable influence on music for decades to come! The music is gritty and garagey right from the start – but also has a sinister focus that really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A grimy gem from the indefatigable Ty Segall!

Live Bullet ... LP Capitol, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
Great music from that wonderful second chapter of the surf music soundtrack – not the familiar 60s kind that often featured guitar instrumentals or catchy beach party tunes, but the later style started in Australia in the 70s – when much trippier music came into play! The music here is ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreCD
Great instrumental work from The Sentinals – a group so confident in their sound, they let members of The Dimensions stand in for their image on the cover! Clearly, these guys don't need to worry about fame and fashion – and instead clearly spend plenty of time honing their groove ... read moreCD
A weird and wild little record – kind of an enigmatic project from a Sepi Kuu, done at level that's quite different than you might expect from its date at the start of the 80s! The feel is much more underground acid folk – this moody blend of acoustic guitar and fuzz, with vocals that ... read moreCD
A fuzzy, freaked-out classic from one of the coolest groups to work on the Chicago scene of the 60s – the mighty Shadows Of Knight, easily one of the best garage acts of their time!

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!

Great work from one of the darkest groups of the girl group generation – the mighty Shangri-Las!
