A great all-girl group from the 70s – and an album that's almost as famous for its nude-painted-silver bodies on the front cover as it is for the grooves on the record! The style here is somewhat in the jazzy rock vein, but with a deeper sense of soul – vocals that could stand well on ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Timeless avant grooves from Isotope 217! We can remember when these guys were just a loose collective of musicians, playing Miles-influenced spacey jazz jams in unadvertised Monday night gigs at Chicago's legendary Rainbo Room. On record they've metamorphosized into one of the most distinctive ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the fantastic early Capitol albums from the young Wanda Jackson – music cut when she was much more of a rockabilly artist than a country singer – with a raw vibe that maybe set a whole new standard for female work in postwar pop music! Jackson's as bold here as any of her male ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the strangest records ever made – and a set that, in late 1965, may well put Jan & Dean ahead of The Beatles or Beach Boys for very experimental production! The set features the duo's original, rejected version of the album Filet Of Soul – not the one that was issued on ... read moreCD
A great little album from Tom Jans – an artist mostly known for a few key songs that other folks sing, but a surprisingly well-developed talent on this mid 70s album for Columbia! The album's maybe a bit too rootsy to be AOR, but also has a similar handling overall – very top-shelf ... read moreCD
Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever!

A seminal session from 70s French synth maestro Jean-Michel Jarre – his 8-part "Equinoxe" suite, a great bit of electronics that was almost France's answer to Kraftwerk at the time!

An overlooked body of work from British singer Eden Kane – one of the cooler chart artists of the pre-Beatles years, and a vocalist who maybe has a bit more growl in his voice than some of his contemporaries!
