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
(Original 50s pressing – in great shape!)

(Cover has some wear, some stains, small splits on the top and bottom seams, light waviness, and some pen.)
The weird, ambitious double album by The Damned! The Damned is definitely one of the more unpredictable punk bands of the era, and they upped the ante on The Black Album, with some creatively restless material on all 4 sides – which is ambitious in and of itself, given the less-is-more ethic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An even more compelling bit of 60s pop than the first Teen Triangle set from these three singers – as the album actually gives the artists a chance to interact, not just bring back solo songs on their own! The whole thing's maybe even worth it for the leadoff version of "Put On A Happy ... read moreCD
James Darren/Shelley Fabares/Paul Petersen —
Teenage Triangle ... CD Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ...
A trio of pop talents you'd normally find on TV – Paul Peterson and Shelly Fabares from the Donna Reed Show, plus James Darren, who'd also done some work for the same program as well – brought together here in a classic 60s album that allows each of their stars to shine brightly on ... read moreCD

A wealth of work from the enigmatic Hank Davis – unreleased tracks, rare singles, and other gems from later years – really spanning the story of Hank's life, which is recounted in the huge booklet with the set! Davis was born in New York, but headed down to Memphis during the early ... read moreCD
Jackie DeShannon serves up some wonderful renditions of popular tunes from the 50s and 60s – stepping aside from her usual role as songwriter, and singing sweetly to some great arrangements from George Tipton! The style is somewhere between 60s pop and more sophisticated vocals – often ... read moreCD
Sophisticated Jackie at her best – working with great arrangements from Jack Nitzsche and Nick DeCaro – both cats from the California scene we can really trust for "cut-above" pop work like this – music that goes way past the simple sounds of DeShannon's start – ... read moreCD
A third album from Death – that legendary Detroit experimental trio – and one that's compiled from never-heard takes from their ill-fated career! Some tracks were recorded in Detroit in the mid 70s – and these are the grittiest, noisiest – with this really primal quality ... read moreCD
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven ... read moreCD
A very cool, very limited replica of this vintage Japanese single from Deep Purple – with the classic "Black Night" on the main side – and (what else?) "Woman From Tokyo" on the flip! Features all the original artwork of the rare Japanese 45! 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great blend of early rock and monster movie aesthetics from The Dynamic Del-Aires – a north New Jersey group who only cut a handful of singles, but also managed a key appearance in The Horror of Party Beach before fading away into obscurity! Despite that short time in the record racks, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A young Sandy Denny, singing with The Strawbs in the years before she left to join Fairport Convention! This material predates the fame of all involved, but represents a key point in the UK folk scene – a time when there was still a bit more influence from US modes of earlier in the 60s, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Early art punk genius from Devo – the amazing underground material from the pre-WB years – when they were still Ohio college students! Hardcore Volume 1 features 4 track recordings made in the mid 70s, including some early versions of tracks they'd re-recorded later for their first ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Early art punk genius from Devo – the underground material from the pre-WB years – when they were still Ohio college students! Hardcore Volume 2 features 2LPs worth of 4- track recordings made in the mid 70s – darker, creepier synth punk than what you're used to from Devo – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Mookish bombast from The Dictactors – heavy rock, fist clenching anthems, poker-faced parodies of love songs and keyboard peppered songs about a bodiy covered in scabs. No sir, there will never be another Dictators! These guys should have been on kid's lunchboxes and Kiss should been ... read moreCD
The album's got a classical-styled cover image, but the work is plenty modern within – some great electronic grooves from the best years of the German new wave! Die Partei are a duo we'd rank right up there with Pyrolator and Der Plan – easily as playful as both of those great acts, ... read moreCD

The long-overdue return of Din – a group missing from this planet for a quarter of a century – recently reformed and revived from the ashes of their California roots! The record's got a relatively vintage feel – from the cloud-swirling production on the guitars, to the sense of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited, numbered pressing of 500 copies – done by Bruce Licher/Independent Projects.)
Really great work from Ned Doheny – an overlooked talent on the LA scene of the 70s – one who had the tightest, smoothest touches of the best of the AOR generation – but a surprising undercurrent of soul as well! Ned's got that unique blend we find in a rare few artists from the ... read moreCD

One of the best solo records to come out of the wake of The Mamas & The Papas – a folksy effort from Denny Doherty, touched with elements of A&M country, in kind of an LA outlaw mode. Titles include "Hey Good Looking", "Watcha Gonna Do", "Neighbors", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, small splits on the top and bottom seams, a cutout hole, and some fading on the spine.)
A different sound than the 60s, sure – but you can't beat Donovan, no matter what the setting. Mickie Most produced, and all songs are Donovan originals – including "Maya's Dance", "Local Boy Chops Wood", "Astral Angel", "Dare To Be Different", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A key year in the music of Donovan – served up here in massive amount of tracks that capture the singer right before his great leap to fame! The Donovan here is firmly wed to the sound and style of Bob Dylan – as chronicled famously in the film Don't Look Back – but that's hardly ... read moreCD
An American collection of early work by Donovan – most from that formative year of 1965, with titles that include "Catch The Wind", "Colours", "Why Do You treat Me Like You Do", "Little Tin Soldier", "Turquoise", "Hey Gyp", "Sunn ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The rare mono mix of Hurdy Gurdy Man – 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 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is ... read moreCD
