Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A psych stunner from one of the great groups on Elektra who never made it as far as they should! Titles include "Black Roses", "With All In Mind", "The Ballad Of Freddie & Larry", "Sand", and "Night Sounds Loud". LP, Vinyl record album
Fourty Niner shows a wonderful growth in Clover – a record that really has the group coming into their own, and hitting some of the best Marin County vibes of the time! There's a definite rootsy feel to the record – some of those Bay Area transmogrifications of sounds from the south, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a sticker on the corner of each side, a mostly split spine, and splitting on the top seam.)
The first rumblings of genius from German electronic giants Cluster – but oddly, a record recorded without any synthesizers at all! The team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius are both playing organ here – as well as cello and Hawaiian guitar, and some "audio-generator&quo ... read moreCD
A memorial album to the late rocker Eddie Cochran – filled with Liberty Records gems that include "Summertime Blues", "C'Mon Everybody", "Cut Across Shorty", and "Somethin Else". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is clean, with light marks. Cover is nice overall, but has a few spots of clear tape on the seams and some light wear.)
One of the darkest concept albums we've ever heard – a set dedicated to creation and the "planet of man" – but really just an amazing experiment in sound! Manfred Schunke put the record together to explore his "artificial head" recording system – and it's got ... read moreCD

Me ... LP Reprise, 1969. Very Good+ ...
One of the best American psych albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, a partially split top seam, and some light staining on the back.)
Condello is Michael Condello – a pretty heady talent from the 60s who should have been huge, given the overall sound of this psych nugget from the time! Condello has this very sinister sort of vibe – folksy at the core, but electrified in really fuzzy, freaky ways – as if he ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pair of wonderful albums from British folkie Mike Cooper – both recorded for the Dawn Records label, in a really genre-breaking style! Places I Know blends Cooper's acoustic guitar and rootsy vocals with some very compelling arrangements from Mike Gibbs – the British jazz talent who ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful set from the British scene at the start of the 70s – a record that's got a fairly folksy tone, but lots of jazzy currents as well! The set was issued on the seminal Dawn Records label – and really shows that imprint's commitment to the left side of the spectrum – as ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An excellent album of jazzy rock material from Detroit! The Corporation were definitely one of the hipper groups ever to record for Capitol during the late 60s, as you'll hear on their incredible version of John Coltrane's "India", done as a progged-out slightly funky instrumental, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A damn surprise to our ears – a record that shouldn't work well, but which succeeds tremendously – bringing all the best part of Elvis Costello and The Roots into play perfectly – with a sound that's unlike anything either of them have ever done before! Costello has way more bite ... read moreCD
One of the coolest combos of the UK 60s scene – and one of the most obscure as well – a very hip instrumental group that was equal parts jazz and soul, with a vibe that was somewhere between Stax Records and mod London at the time! Hammond figures strongly into lots of these songs ... read moreCD

Lo & Behold ... LP DJM (UK), 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ...
Cowsills ... CD MGM/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ...
One of of the grooviest groups of their time – and a quintet who manage to exceed the usual on two different fronts – both as a family group, and as a harmony outfit too! The Cowsills have a vocal approach that's far richer than their years on the planet – never kiddie at all, ... read moreCD
An incredible early 90s EP by The Cramps – putting their macabre psychobilly stamp some killer covers – tracks originally done by Jack Nitzsche, Lightnin' Slim, Walter Brown & The Alleycats and Sherriff & The Ravels! Cleanly produced by Poison Ivy herself, it's one of the finer ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really dreamy bit of sunshine pop from The Critters – a wonderful group who do an excellent job of mixing sweet harmonies with pop-psych instrumentation – yet all in a way that's totally sweet, and very very catchy too! The record's got a very groovy feel overall – thanks to ... read moreCD
Legendary live work from one of the greatest supergroups of all time – never-heard material from their famous concert tour of 1974! Neil Young is a key part of the lineup of Graham Nash, David Crosby, and Stephen Stills – and the quartet harmonize and trade leads beautifully on a set ... read moreCD
A haunting debut from singer Julee Cruise – collaborating with filmmaker/songwriter/producer David Lynch and his Twin Peaks soundtrack composer Angelo Badalamenti – on one of the coolest vocal records of the period! This album was a bit underappreciated at the time, perhaps because its ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The breakout album for The Cryan Shames – a wonderfully groovy harmony pop combo from the 60s – one with a sound that's very much the best Sunshine Pop of LA, even though these guys hail from our hometown of Chicago! The vocals come together with a really magical feel – sometimes ... read moreCD

Tickets ... LP 20th Century, 1979. Near Mint- ...
A great debut from this overlooked Danish group at the start of the 70s – a combo who could easily step between folksy and progressive modes, and who often had a warm sense of harmony in their vocals! Culpepper's Orchard are always very much their own sort of group – but they have a ... read moreCD
One of the most personal and spontaneous albums ever recorded by Ivor Cutler – a live session that's done in the spirit of his quirky studio albums of the time, but one that's also recorded with a fair bit of crowd response! Ivor recites his stories and poems with spare harmonium backing ... read moreCD

LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a mark from sticker removal on the front, and a sticker on the back.)
Cybotron ... CD Dual Planet/Clear Light Of Jupiter (Australia), 1976. New Copy (reissue)...
Cybotron's self-titled record from 1976 – and it's a remarkably prescient set of experimental synth rock instrumentals! It's a bit akin the work of German pioneers like Neu! And Tangerine Dream, but Cybotron is actually the work of Australians Steve Maxwell Von Braund and Geoff Green (not to ... read moreCD
Rings ... LP Entrance, Early 70s. Very Good+ ...
Not the avant experimental record you might expect from the group's name, but a nicely compelling set from start of the 70s Atlantic Records – much more creative than the usual chartbound rock act of the time, with a nice mix of rootsy elements and harder rocking moments! Part of the group's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moisture staining and wrinkling along the bottom, some wear, fading along the top, splitting on the bottom seam, and a sticker on the back.)
The original soundtrack to an odd little 50s rock film – with Sal Mineo in the band on drums – and songs written by Henry Mancini, Rod McKuen, and Bobby Troup! McKuen sings on one number – and Alan Copeland sings on another. LP, Vinyl record album
