One of the few albums as an artist from the great Nick De Caro – one of the hipper arrangers of the 60s, best known for his collaborations with Claudine Longet on A&M! Nick's a very subtle genius – one who can work firmly inside the mainstream, but also bring something different to ... (Now Sound, Rock)read moreCD

Zabaya ... LP Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, Late 70s. New Copy ...
A real freakout of a record – played by a band who must have been one of the headiest acts in Niger during the 70s! That nation's not nearly as well-known for psychedelic acts as some of the other African scenes of the time – but Azna De L'Adner can easily stand with the best of them ... (Global Grooves, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The start of a wonderful run of sounds – the debut album from Dead Can Dance, and a set that's maybe more linked to the larger world of 4AD Records than some of their later material! All the moody touches we love are already in place – those amazing ancient-sounding vocals of Lisa ... read moreCD
A record that seems to take Dead Can Dance even farther back into the past than ever before – not to the sound of their earliest years, but to a world of ancient musical elements that come together beautifully in their hands! The set is probably the most carefully-recorded the group ever ... read moreCD
One of the crowning classics from the early years of Deep Purple – and a set that will forever be remembered for giving the world the classic rock anthem "Smoke On The Water"!

The last lovely album in a wonderful run of records from Lizzy Mercer Descloux – one of the most unique talents to work on the Ze Records imprint in the 80s – and an artist who shared plenty of the genre-crossing, global-mixing elements of her contemporaries! The album's got a sound ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD
A lost treasure from the post-Krautrock years of the German scene – a lesser-known album on the Sky Records label – more famously home to Moebius and Rodelius – both of whom would be a good comparison for this album as well! Dorothea Raukes handles all the music on waves of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A legendary moment in De-Evolution – after the proto-punk provocateurs' unlikely pop rock crossover in the early 80s and took the next logical, hilarious step – diving head first into the elevator music/muzak style of the period's easy listening! Originally issued to Club Devo fanclub ... read moreCD
(Includes a election pin badge, a fold out poster, a cocktail stirrer & cocktail recipes.)
A sparely furnished stunner of an acoustic instrumentals record from guitarist Luther Dickinson – with quite a different vibe than his work with the North Mississippi Allstars – and one that shows him really cherishing his southern roots musical lineage as proudly as anything he's done! ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreCD
A late 70s rager from The Dictators! This one's a hard charging blast from their time at Asylum – easing back on brawny humor of the first album, while sharpening the attack to a finer edge than they did on on their second album – adding up to a super catchy, but still nice and gruff ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A raucous little EP of never-before-heard cuts by protopunk legends The Dictators – with some bugged out, loud, manic Andrew WK remixes/re-imaginings – plus previously unreleased material from the Go Girl Crazy sessions! If any modern rock figure sports a massive Dictators influence ... read more12-inch, Vinyl record

Dinosaur L (Arthur Russell) —
24 24 Music ... LP Sleeping Bag, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)...
An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the ...

Dion ... CD Laurie/Ace (UK), 1968. New Copy ...
A key later album from Dion – and a set that shows a newly maturing style in his music! The album was something of a follow-up to Dion's huge single "Abraham Martin & John" – the bittersweet track that was a surprise late 60s hit for the singer – and which allowed ... read moreCD
Streetheart features arrangements by Michael Omartin that have a warm mid 70s AOR sound, with a trace of sadness that cuts through the mix. Titles include "Hey My Love", "More to You", "You Showed Me What Love Is", "Baby Let's Stick Together", "New York ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing record from one of the most legendary forces in the New York No Wave scene at the start of the 80s! At the time, DNA was one of the most uproarious acts in that increasingly legendary NYC scene – a group that featured Arto Lindsay's scratchy guitar and haggard banshee wail of a ... read more12-inch, Vinyl record
A seminal set from Ned Doheny – a lasting bit of California cool from the 70s, and a record that's every bit as refreshing as its image on the cover! The sound is tight, but never too slick – well-crafted songwriting with equally well-crafted production and studio execution – but ... read moreCD
A never-issued album, but one that stands with the best creative California work of the early 70s – especially that huge wave of new singer/songwriters that flowed from the studios in Los Angeles and the Bay Area! Terry Dolan hails from the latter, and sounds superb on this set of tracks ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Darkly beautiful sounds from the duo of Don & Stevie Gere – a husband and wife who work here with a style that's folksy, but a bit spooky too – possibly due to the fact that the music within was recorded in their California home, and never issued for years! There's a deeply ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Donovan at his jazzy best – really picking up where Mellow Yellow left off, and pushing the jazz influences in his sound to deeper lengths! Mr Leitch is a million miles away from his Dylanesque early roots on the set – and is working in territory that's completely his own – a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the trippiest albums ever from Donovan, as you might guess from the title – a double-length gem that's filled with wonderfully groovy tunes! The set was cut during Donovan's killer years with producer Mickie Most in the late 60s – and it's got an instrumental feel that's even ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing including booklet. Box has some surface wear, split corner, and some writing in pen on front.)
Easily one of the headiest Donovan albums of the 60s – a record that moves past the simple psychedelic pop of earlier hits, and into a range of mind-expanding themes and styles! There's a cerebral quality here that seems to take hold even on the simpler, catchier tunes – a deeply ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label mono promo! Cover has light wear, a bumped corner, the mono promo sticker, a promo ink stamp on back. Vinyl has light surface marks.)
A beautiful treasure from the legendary Nick Drake – the last album he ever recorded – and a set that may well be his most personal as well! The sound here is even more stripped-down than before – often just vocals and acoustic guitar, but used together in ways that are really ... read moreCD
A seminal collection of Nick Drake's best work! CD
Get Dreamy ... LP Polydor/Round 2 (Norway), 1967. Very Good (reissue)...
A totally wonderful bit of psychedelia from the late 60s scene in Norway – and the only album ever from a group that featured a young Terje Rypdal on guitar! Terje's much better known for his atmospheric jazz work in the 70s – but at this point in his career, he had a wonderful touch ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great UK beat group grooves from the late 60's – featuring the amazing voice of Julie Driscoll and the hard Hammond organ sounds of Brian Auger!

(5LPs, in individual sleeves – plus a 36 page book too!)
A masterpiece of early electric Dylan – and one easily one of the most pivotal recordings of the 60s in any genre! featuring classics like "Subterranean Homesick Blues", "Maggie's Farm", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Gates Of Eden", "It's All Over Now, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s!
