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
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
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
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

A cabinet full of psychedelic wonders from Dutch genius Jacco Gardner! Jacco carries a torch from some of the more swirling psych era sounds from around the world – getting a little bit of assistance on the drums – but he otherwise wrote, produced, and plays everything on this ... read moreCD
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
Freaked out, slow burning, LSD inspired freeform psychedelia from the early 70s – credited to Czech-born guru Sergius Golowin and the Cosmic Jokers! Conceptually, Lord Krishna Von Goloka concerns itself with the spiritual machinations of the universe and all kinds of mystical mumbo jumbo of ... read moreCD
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul ... read moreCD
Margo Guryan —
27 Demos ... CD Franklin Castle/Oglio, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ...
Really wonderful work from Margo Guryan – an artist who was probably known more as a songwriter than a singer – especially for her groovy late 60s pop tunes! This package is heavy on those gems – presented in these great demo takes that are nice and stripped-down – often ... read moreCD
An early 80s album, but one that's definitely got the timeless feel of Gwydion's look on the cover – every bit what you might expect from a guy who calls himself The Faerie Shaman! The tunes are folksy, but with an ancient vibe that's a bit like some of the UK acid folk scene of the 70s, ... read moreCD
It's been quite a few years since we last heard from Half Japanese, and we're definitely overjoyed at what we're hearing here – music that's as powerful and personal as the group were back at their start! At some level, we're amazed at how strong these guys still sound – rawer than ... read moreCD
A contemporary set with a folksy twist – but one that really fits the older style of the mostly-reissue music we usually hear on the Golden Pavillion label! The vocals are especially great – with this sort of ancient rasp that almost takes us back to early Palace Brothers material ... read moreCD
Bizarre is right – and incredibly hip too! This was the group's second album – and while it has a lot of similarities with the first, it's also a lot deeper of an expression of their strange blend of harmony vocals, sweet 60s pop, and the nostalgia for the early 20th century that was ... read moreCD
Weird, wonderful sounds from George Harrison – with lots of Indian music in the mix! Titles include "Greasy Legs", "Guru Vandana", "Microbes", "On The Bed", "Glass Box", "Singing Om", and "Love Scene". CD
Incredible sounds from trumpeter Jon Hassell – a really genre-defining record, and the start of a great run of music for years to come! The album's part of Brian Eno's "fourth world" series – explorations in mixing his own inventive modes with other global styles – but ... read moreCD
A rare album, with a full bonus album of previously-unreleased material – all from the obscure British group Havenstreet – an underground folksy combo who maybe showed up a few years too late on the scene! While most of England in 1977 was bristling with the new energy of punk, these ... read moreCD
Raw, rumbling outsider psych from Stephen David Heitkotter – a wild and raucous stream of rambling genius from the early 70s! There's a loose, bluesy approach at the core – with long songs and a disquieting, yet engrossing mood that makes the set one of the most compelling lost rock ... read moreCD
(A really beautifully done version from Now Again – which comes in thick, hardcover booklet – with bonus tracks.)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience in peak, fierce form at Winterland – compiled from the series of shows the trio put on at the iconic San Francisco ballroom over 3 days in October, 1968! Amazing stuff that's worthy of Jimi's legend – his own classic numbers performed here as loosely and ... read moreCD
