A slightly gentler album than the first Captain Beyond outing – but one that really has the group stretching out their wings wonderfully! The set's recorded both in Macon and Sausalito – and really has a vibe that indicates that mix – a core southern rock element, handled with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds —
Good Son ... CD Mute/Enigma (UK), 1990. Used ...
A great one from Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds – a record that explores his softer side, if you want to call it that – the trudging melodies, morose poetry and banshee wails offset brilliantly by soul stirring string parts and easier piano melodies! Definitely capping off the 80s and ... read moreCD
Proof that blues rock can be turned towards a useful end – and a landmark album from one of the greatest Brit groups of the post-beat era! CCS (Collective Consciousness Society) were more of a studio project than anything else – but their first few records sparkled with a groove and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a stain inside the gatefold.)
One of the coolest surf instrumental albums of the 60s – an obscure set by The Centurions that's not to be confused with the similar Pajama Party set from Beach Boy Bruce Johnston – but which is an even more unusual assemblage of sounds overall! These guys offer up way more than just ... read moreCD
A dream of a record from Chad & Jeremy – a fantastic bit of psychedelic pop produced by Gary Usher! The album's got quite a different feel than the rest of the duo's work – as their standard Brit pop style is augmented by lots of extra strings and woodwinds, super-baroque in a ... read moreCD
Great sounds from The Challengers – one of the coolest, tightest instrumental groups on the Cali scene of the surf years – so instrumentally sharp that all of the individual members get named on the back cover – in the style of a jazz album! Drummer Richard Delvy heads up the ... read moreCD
Michael Chapman —
Window ... LP Harvest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
Maybe our favorite album ever from Michael Chapman – a bit more stripped-down and rootsy than his other Harvest Records classics, but in a really great way! There's a fluid spirit to the music right from the start – a great focus on Michael's vocals and guitar, but support from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing.)
Chatham County Line —
IV ... CD Yep Roc, 2008. Used ...
A killer snapshot of Alex Chilton fronting a tight band in a low key club gig at lower Manhattan NYC's Ocean Club in 1977 – sounding really great – covering a wealth of his classic Big Star and Box Tops tunes, along with newer originals and some cool, surprising covers tunes. It's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Chocolate Watch Band —
No Way Out ... CD Capitol/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ...
A mix of spiraling psychedelia and grittier garagey rock from Chocolate Watch Band! No Way Out has a bit more grit than the more mystical follow up LP, but we wouldn't complain about that – the mix of more tripped out organ and atmospheric touches paired with harder hitting, sweaty r&b ... read moreCD
A big 70s album for Clapton – with titles that include "Cocaine", "The Core", "Wonderful Tonight", "Lay Down Sally", "Next Time You See Her", and "Mean Old Frisco". LP, Vinyl record album
(About half of the cover is lightly stained, and the gatefold is stuck together.)
Eric Clapton, John McLaughlin, Roy Buchanan, etc —
Guitar Album ... LP Polydor, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP ...
A cool collection of guitar-based work from Polydor Records in many styles – with work by Roy Buchanan, John McLaughlin, Ellen McIlwaine, Eric Clapton, T-Bone Walker, Link Wray, Stone The Corws, Rory Ghallagher, and Area Code 615! Trippy cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
The original 10 inch pressing of this great collection of singles, b-sides and various odds and ends, pulled together in the middle peak of the Clash's career! Black Market Clash holds up incredibly well – it's blazing stuff recorded from '77 to '80 and issued to start that decade. 9 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album from The Clash – ferocious, melodic and masterful bits of barbed greatness from the group – the greatest flaw of which is that it's not the first album. They're still completely great, playing in peak form even with the less shambling, slightly more polished production ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
