The swaggering, hard grooving and hard rocking debut of Aerosmith! While "Dream On" gets as much or more rock radio play than any song should ever need, it's actually pretty easy to overlook just how good the rest of the record is. They may borrow the bluesy swagger of the Stones and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing with the larger group photo cover.)
A record so cool, it's practically a genre unto itself – and a set that's a key part of the On-U Sound approach of the 80s! The group draw initial influence from 70s Jamaican dub, but never hold to just the roots of that music – and instead explode into a huge range of odd sounds and ...

Kamuran Akkor —
Kamuran Akkor ... LP Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)...
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements! The language is beyond the reach of ... (Global Grooves, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Davie Allan & The Arrows —
Apache '65 ... LP Tower, 1965. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
The first ever album by the incredible Davie Allan & The Arrows – a great batch of pulpy garage rock instrumentals that shatters every cliche in the book! This set finds the group at it's tightest, melding earlier surf rock & r&b, and even a little bit of Bakersfield honky tonk ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare album from Hollywood studio musicians turned garage rock heroes Davie Allan & The Arrows! This is another of their Nugget-fueling efforts with short, short cuts blazing with fuzzy-as-hell guitars, rumbling drums and thumping bass – rolling along with fluid, thematic lead guitar ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a sticker with, some staining, splitting and stuck on paper due to moisture.)
Classic kitschy biker material from Davie Allan and The Arrows – one of the best-ever groups to play on schlocky soundtracks during the 60s! There's lots of guitar and lots of fuzz – and guessing from the photos of the movie, the music was the best thing about it! Toddler Mike Curb ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Epic, polyrhythmic instrumentals from Alto! – ambitious, hypnotic and danceable stuff, going way beyond what you might expect from Portland-based experimental/instrumental rock trio! They carry a world of influences, from West African and Ethiopian sources as much a European and American ones ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A 60s girl group classic if there ever was one – and the only standout album from the lovely Angels! The group were known, of course, for the title hit "My Boyfriend's Back" – a quick-stepping number that was a runaway pop hit at the time. That tune kicks off the album, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pure burning soul from The Animals – a nicely stripped-down set that revels in older R&B styles – cooked up with a version of the group that features Dave Rowberry on Hammond and lots of screaming vocals from Eric B! The original Animals vibe is opened up a bit more with some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole and split top seam.)
Raw, bluesy work from this excellent group – with tracks that include "Inside Looking Out", "Gin House Blues", "What Am I Living For", "I Put A Spell On You", "Don't Bring Me Down", and "One Monkey Won't Stop The Show". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, and wide clear tape on the spine.)
Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime! Keren's also making a big step towards a global market here, too – ... (French, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Not! Not! Ya know what. . .Anthrax's I'm The Man EP may be dumb fun, but it's high-minded dumb fun, and done with geniune love for classic rap. . .gutsy stuff from these true godfathers of thrash metal, from a time when their peers took themselves way too freaking seriously. Well, either gutsy, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A lost heavy rock classic from the Dunwich Production team – recorded in Michigan, but with extra orchestral backing in Chicago – for an approach that gives the record a slightly pop quality that tempers the harder rock sound nicely. The songs are actually pretty catchy, in a post-Summe ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)
Mid 60s concept pop from Appletree Theatre – a mix of unpredictable baroque pop, soaring string laden tunes, and more stripped down and moody numbers – and programmed as acts, in keeping with the theatre mode! What's most impressive, other than the tuneful songcraft, is that it never ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Shrinkwrap has a hole in front. Cover has a cutout hole.)
A damn legendary record from the last years of Chess Records – and for good reason, too! Archie Whitewater were a group that was years ahead of its time – a rock combo, but one with real genre-crossing sensibilities that made them perfect for the experimental styles at the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A heady set of jazz from the Australian scene of the 70s – a bit funky jazz, a bit harder jamming – and a record that's got a lot more edge than its contemporaries from the European scene! Ted White plays tremendous flute and alto sax here – the latter with a sharply spiritual ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the standout moments in the career of Rod Argent – a record that gave his self-named group one of their biggest hits ever, yet a set that still kept all the depth and diversity of their other records too! The album starts out with the group's famous "Hold Your Head Up" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has some surface wear.)
Rod Argent's project immediately after the breakup of the Zombies! There's plenty of Zombie-like ideas here – particularly those floating around the Odyssey and Oracle album, but they're also done without the dreamy pop style of Colin Blunstone's vocals, which makes for a much harder sound ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing, including the lyric sleeve.)
A wonderful little set of post-folk rock – with lots of lovely baroque touches! Ars Nova were really a one-off group – known for only this rare gem, issued on Elektra in 1968 – but with a sound that perfectly summed up a generation! There's a wonderful LA late 60s sound here ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Not as sublime as their first LP, but still a nice batch of modern pop sound collage. More traditional song structures are poking through the cool po-mo facade here. With "Opus 4", "Eye Of A Needle", "Backbeat", "Instruments Of Darkness", "Peter ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Maki Asakawa ... LP Honest Jons (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ...
Haunting music from Japanese singer Maki Asakawa – every bit as smoky and soulful as you might guess from her image on the cover! These tracks are mostly sung in Japanese, but draw a very strong inspiration from American torch sounds of the 40s and 50s – a moody, late nite approach ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic dreamy pop! Despite the fact that this one yielded the super-huge hits "Windy" and "Never My Love", the album's also filled with great 60s pop tunes that you've probably never heard before – all as fantastically well-crafted and delicately strung-out as the big ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A tighty grooving, slighty swampy set of psych era perfection for Asylum Choir – aka 70s longhair enigma Leon Russell and Texan guitar guru Marc Benno – who at the time were best known only by insiders as excellent session men! Look Into The Asylum Choir has many of the benchmark ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most rock-oriented sets we've ever heard from JP Massiera – who wrote all the words and music here for a French group who take on the myth of Atlantide! The style mixes tuneful lines on guitar, bass, drums, and percussion – without some of the keyboards you might expect from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(These copies have a small top seam split, but have been reduced in price.)
Third album from the Brit prog-rockers. This album is a bit funkier than their previous releases, as their Memphis soul influence is quite apparent here.

David Axelrod/Cannonball Adderley —
Messiah ... LP RCA, 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
David Axelrod takes on Handel's Messiah – and the result is an amazingly complex set of music – very similar to his earlier albums on Capitol Records, and his Warner work with the Electric Prunes!
