Nobody But Me kicks off with the timeless Isley Bros-penned title track – one of the cachiest radio hits of the time a certainly an important blue print for the power pop of later decades!

Human League —
Dare ... LP A&M/Virgin, 1981. Very Good Gatefold ...
A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Some great early 80s pop groove material from Human League – less of the colder synth of before, and more of the warmer soul-based sound that worked surprisingly well for the group! The EP features a number of tracks that fell between the LPs – including the extended version of their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album by Human League – and one that has them really honing their craft a bit, sliding from a world of messed-up broken-down synthesizers into more song-based forms that hint at the genius pop of later years. Things are still pretty darn dark – with vocals that would scare a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a cutout notch. Label has a peeled spot.)
Great early work from Brian Hyland – a singer who's mostly known for his novelty hits, but who has a heck of a lot more to offer! Brian was a really young guy at the time of these recordings, but he sings with a sense of sadness and maturity on some numbers that matches the darkness of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A real departure in the career of Brian Hyland – and light years away from his earlier fame as a teen pop singer! The Hyland of this record is a brooding one – mature, sometimes slightly folksy – but also able to draw on a wealth of soul, blues, and other musical references that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest jazz rock albums to come out of the British scene at the end of the 60s – a record that's filled with tight changes, bluesy overtones, and some wonderfully choppy moments – all played by a legendary lineup that includes Terry Smith on guitar, John Healing on organ, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some surface residue and a small name in pen.)
A rare rocker on ABC Records! LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice and clean overall, and cover is too.)
Jean Michel Jarre —
Oxygene ... LP Polydor, 1976. Very Good+ ...
France's huge contribution to the classic catalog of 70s synth records – proof that Germans weren't the only ones who could make huge-selling spacey albums! The record's strength is Jarre's slightly romantic approach to scoring, which creates some dreamy melodies that really help hold the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Jefferson Airplane flying high in the late 60s – both a creative and commercial triumph for the band – balancing the tripped out adventurousness of their earlier work, with a more focused approach that brought them to bigger and bigger audiences! Front loaded with moodier, acoustic-base ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The last studio effort from Jefferson Airplane – and an underappreciated gem! At this point, Airplane was on the descent, landing gear in place – with the foundations for band's one-time side projects Jefferson Starship and Hot Tuna ready to relaunch as primary projects. That said, it' ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the original fold-out cover, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a couple of small rips on the fold-outs & some light wear.)
Early genius from these Bay Area stalwarts – one of the greatest rock records of its time! Surrealistic Pillow is the second Jefferson Airplane album, but they took a number of huge creative leaps in the 8 months or so between their debut record and this one. This one is where they're ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has a split in the top seam.)
A killer double LP of Jethro Tull doing their inimitable thing at Carnegie Hall in 1970! It was a benefit concert, recorded on November 4th that year, and was only ever previously released as bonus material on the 2010 CD and digital reissue of the Stand Up – getting a much deserved, stand ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful early work from Jethro Tull – a formative set that really has the group deepening both their themes and their music! Titles include "A New Day Yesterday", "Back To The Family", "Fat Man", "Reasons For Waiting", "Nothing Is Easy", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

(Original US tan & orange label pressing. Cover has edge wear.)
Timeless rock & roll from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – an indie rock pioneer who simply doesn't get the credit she deserves for shattering the glass ceiling for both women and independent souls in mainstream rock in the early 80s! Includes the hit title track and her cool cover of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Jimmy Eat World —
Futures ... LP Interscope, 2004. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ...
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Janis Joplin —
Pearl ... LP Columbia, 1971. Very Good ...
The sound of a legend – a raw rocking classic from Janis Joplin – arguably the most perfectly-formed record from her all-too-short run in modern music!
