Tusk ... LP Warner, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP ...
Just Sold Out!
Overblown for its time, and almost crushed under its own weight – but a record that's lasted surprisingly well over the years! Titles include "Sara", "Tusk", "Walk A Thin Line", "That's Enough For Me", "Brown Eyes", "Save Me A Place" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The only album ever issued by Floating Opera – a groovy batch of fuzzy psyche tunes produced by Herbie Mann for his Embryo imprint! The group have a slightly sensitive feel at times – a style that's got bits of the rootsier rock that was showing up on the scene at the time, yet still ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great overlooked band from the Cali scene at the turn of the century – a quartet with a great female singer, and a tight jangly sound that almost takes us back to the C86 generation in the UK! The songs are well-written, and filled with sweet little hooks that bring out the best in the ... read moreCD
Joik ... CD Distort-D-Sound, 1999. New Copy ...
One of the few albums ever cut by this under-discovered California quartet – a cool little group who mix post punk elements with some warmer ideas too – sometimes using jazzy inflections on the guitar and keyboards, at a level that reminds us a bit of some of the more subtle groups from ... read moreCD
Singles, b-sides, and even some rare alternate versions – all served up as a stunning portrait of one of Canada's coolest groups of the 60s! 49th Parallel are a psych group at their core – but the range of material here has the group starting in garagey territory, and ending in some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Comes with bonus insert too.)
A wild little concept album from the Four Seasons – one that's packaged in newspaper-style cover, and which presents tunes that almost have that late 60s British "snapshots of life" approach to pop – particularly that put forth by The Kinks on Village Green Preservation ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the original fold-out cover, including the booklet. Cover has a cutout hole & some light wear.)
Maybe the coolest volume so far in this all-amazing series – a heady dip into the farther reaches of the Kim Fowley universe! This time around, Kim's only the performer on a few track – and most numbers are by obscure groups, both soul and rock – originally recorded by Fowley for ... read moreCD

A wonderful lost gem from the legendary Vanguard Records – a set issued in the 70s, but with the best independent spirit of the label from the decade before! Bob Frank is a very unique songwriter – and has this amazing ability to paint these personal little pictures in song – ... read moreCD
One of the few straight rock records ever issued on the mostly-folk Monitor Records label – a great 60s outing from Freeborne, a group with a sound that's as tripped-out as you might expect from the cover! Instrumentation is heavy on organ and guitars, both acoustic and electric, but there's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Two incredibly groovy records that will completely redefine your expectations for religious music – both put together by the Rev Nick Freund! Montgomery Chapel is an incredibly dark album that's way more acid folk than anything else – recorded by a group named The Search Party, and ... read moreCD
A rock record, at least from the vocal standpoint – but a set that's also got a very strong grounding in jazz – thanks to a lineup that includes Jason Adasewicz on vibes, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Jason Roebke on bass! Steve Dawson is in the lead on vocals – and has a raspy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
The second of 3 great albums by in the short but massively influential career of Galaxie 500 – the members of whom would go on the pretty successful careers in other groups, but it's hard to imagine how those records can be better remembered than gems like On Fire! Dean Wareham had really ... read moreCD
(Out of print.)
1976 ... CD Seidr (Germany), 1976. Used ...
This one's actually the group's sort of second album – at least in the US – with 4 tracks that really follow nicely in the feel of Entertainment! Tracks were recorded between 1978 and 1980 – and all have a nice raw guitar sound. Includes the massive "Armalite Rifle", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a piece of clear tape on back.)
Gang Of Four —
Hard ... LP Warner, 1983. Very Good+ ...
A bit of an attempt to dive into early 80s mainstream soul – and one that stands the test of time a lot better than we would have expected, despite the super-polished production that all but buries the group's earlier harder-edged style. There's a lot of really nice soulful backing vocals, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Spine has some wear.)
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Missing the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
The third chapter in the strange, but wonderful journey of the George-Edwards group! Chapter III has a much fuller sound than so many of the private press rock gems that are seeing some late love, thanks to deep digging later generations of potential listeners – with some surprising heavy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great bit of glam pop from the mid 70s – presented with a tightly focused sound that's got plenty of grooves on the bottom, and sweetly compressed guitars and vocals over the top! Mike Leander's at the production helm, and the album's kind of a further popification of the older Gary ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really well-done collection of work from The Goldebriars – the sublime harmony folk ensemble that was the key pre-Millennium project from Cali pop genius Curt Boettcher! The style here is both timeless and firmly tied to the 60s – a beautiful blend of male and female vocals in the ... read moreCD
The debut album from Golden Earring – recorded years before their mid 70s fame with "Radar Love"! The style here is very Brit Invasion – sung in English throughout, and done with a jangle-pop groove that's more Merseybeat than you'd guess from the group's Dutch origins – ... read moreCD
