This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the ... read moreCD
About as classic as you can get for the great Eddie Cochran – no surprise, since the album was put together to mourn his untimely early passing, and is filled with some of the best tracks he ever cut for Liberty Records! The music here is Cochran at his prime – that post-country, pre-po ... read moreCD
One of the weirdest moments we've ever heard from early rocker Eddie Cochran – but one of the coolest too! The record has less of the raw rock material that you might know from Eddie's greater fame – and it mixes his core rockabilly modes with some fuller pop backings from Johnny Mann, ... read moreCD
We can't imagine the recording engineer sleeping while this set was being recorded – as the sound here is plenty powerful, and this unusual post-prog blend of jazz, rock, and electronic elements! The group features the legendary Gunter Hampel on vibes, piano, and reeds – and Gunter ... read moreCD
One of the coolest combos of the UK 60s scene – and one of the most obscure as well – a very hip instrumental group that was equal parts jazz and soul, with a vibe that was somewhere between Stax Records and mod London at the time! Hammond figures strongly into lots of these songs ... read moreCD
Cowsills ... CD MGM/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ...
One of of the grooviest groups of their time – and a quintet who manage to exceed the usual on two different fronts – both as a family group, and as a harmony outfit too! The Cowsills have a vocal approach that's far richer than their years on the planet – never kiddie at all, ... read moreCD
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!

A bouncy early gem from The Cyrkle – filled with easygoing, impeccable harmonies – and mixed with some wonderful arrangements and production from the legendary John Simon – who's really at the top of his game here, during a short but wonderful run of records for Columbia! 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
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 pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... read moreCD
NEW ... CD Tryangle/Drag City, 2015. New Copy ...
The N.E.W. record from Detroit proto-punk legends Death – whose older music has rightfully been catapulted out of the deep deep underground in recent years, gaining them much deserved widespread recognition – and their first proper new album since 1976 shows that they've still got it! ... read moreCD
