Iggy and The Stooges take on their classic Raw Power nearly 40 years later – served up in a surprisingly searing live performance! James Williamson lays down some heavy guitar next to Iggy's shirtless vocals – and titles include "Raw Power", "Search & Destroy", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A heck of a great record – and we don't mind saying it! After knocking around in territory that ran from new wave to neo ska, retro swing, and other assorted genres, Joe Jackson really emerged with a strong voice on this 1982 classic. The album's a loving tribute to New York – and is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & some flaking on the spine.)
A late, great record by Stonewall Jackson – 1970's too little remembered Lonesome In Me, a record that finds the early 60s hitmaking country legend selling less records with new label Columbia, which is a shame, because he's arguably as great as ever! Some of the best tracks work a mode that ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 sound stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and seam splitting, and a promo track list sticker on the front.)
Gift ... LP Polydor, 1982. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
The final proper album by The Jam! The Gift is a far more diversely soul-steeped set of tunes than anything they'd done up to this point – and in hindsight, it feels more like a starting point for Paul Weller's career to come than a final album for The Jam! While they're working more soul ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pretty cool and groovy work from Tommy James – with cuts that include "Papa Rolled His Own", "Sweet Cherry Wine", "Cellophane Symphony", "Evergreen", "On Behalf Of The Entire Staff & Management", and "The Love Of A Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
Jean Michel Jarre —
Zoolook ... LP Dreyfus (France), 1984. Very Good ...
World sounds meet 80s electronics – and the result is a groundbreaking batch of tracks from Jean-Michel Jarre, one that sounds a heck of a lot better today than we remember 20 years ago! Jarre's got a great sound here – dark, evocative, and with enough colonialist tension between the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original French pressing, including the inner sleeve.)
The first of the twin Waylon Jennings masterpieces from 1973 – a career-defining year that saw the releases of both Lonesome, On'ry & Mean and Honky Tonk Heroes – 2 of Waylon's greatest albums! Self-produced and focused on the voice and the driving heart of the songs, this is ... 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! There's still a bit of blues rock at the core – but also some richer, more lyrical modes too – and Ian Anderson does a perfect job of bridging both ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & tan label stereo pressing, with pop-up gatefold. Cover has half split seams.)
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
Southern hillbilly soul from Fern Jones – a minister, church singer and songwriter with a real feel for the secular shake of 50s Sun Records, honky tonk, and shout blues – a pure evangelical with a worldly groove! Fern worked the gospel circuit of tent and church shows for many, many ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – This copy was separated from the "Glory Road" set, and comes in a thinner cardstock cover.)
Features the hit "Delilah", plus "Hold On I'm Coming", "You Keep Me Hanging On", "Keep On Running", "Get Ready", "I Was Made To Love Her", and "It's A Man's Man's World". (Vocalists, Rock)LP, Vinyl record album
The stellar solo debut of Janis Joplin – fronting her own Kozmic Blues Band after the break from Big Brother!

(70s pressing. Cover has the R Crumb sticker along the top!)
Janis Joplin —
Pearl ... LP Columbia, 1971. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
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! There's a focus here that's even sharper than before – and a rising of the funky undercurrents that Janis always had in her ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stunning record – and one that still chills us to the bone after all these years! The set's the first (and one of the few) from Joy Division – and really set a whole new standard for the post-punk underground – thanks partly to the group's brooding sense of darkness, but also ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Kilburn & The High-Roads —
Handsome ... LP Dawn (UK), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ...
Tthe lost 1975 release from Kilburn & The High Road – Ian Dury's fantastic, and at the time, completely anomalous group of pub rock outcasts! The Kilburn sound is tough to describe even now – traces of Phil Spector's rock & soul, ragged 50s jazz, and drunken pub rock make up ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Later UK pressing on Pye. Cover has a small stain on back.)
This King Crimson line-up featured David Cross on violin & keyboards, along with John Wetton, Bill Bruford, and of couse Robert Fripp. Eight tracks in all, including "The Night Watch", "Fracture", "The Great Deceiver", "The Mincer", "Lament", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

An overlooked gem from The Kinks – a set that's got all the wit of their late 60s material, a bit of the rootsy currents of Muswell Hillbillies, and a lot more bite than the group would have in some of their next few albums to come! Ray Davies' pen is razor-sharp, as is his vocal approach ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
It's hard to go wrong with The Kinks at this point in their career – a time when even at their most basic, the group had something special that set them apart from most of their contemporaries! There's a definite bluesy undercurrent to most of the music here – an aspect that Ray Davies ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and a grommet.)
Ray Davies is really coming into his own by the time of this third album by The Kinks – penning almost all the tunes in the set, and really starting to stretch out with some of his more unique ideas! The songs are already beginning to show that picture postcard side of British pop that was ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Vinyl is nice. Cover has light wear & a cutout grommet.)
One of the highest-concept of all 70s Kinks album – a dark exploration of fame and the price of success, done as a mini-rock opera starring Norman & The Starmaker! As with some of these sets, the best tunes here are those that are the most subtle and less dramatic – and which ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Really cool work from Turkish rocker Fikret Kizilok – a collection of early 70s singles that really know how to shake up and mess up the concept of musical genres!

One of the greatest power pop albums ever recorded – a blistering batch of tight little rocking tunes that took pop music back to basics at the end of the 70s!

One of the many chapters of Jimi's career before his famous Experience recordings – a set of hard rocking soul tracks with singer Curtis Knight, recorded in a really lively sort of party feel!

Led Zeppelin —
Coda ... LP Swan Song, 1982. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
The title's an apt one – given that the record was the end of the tremendous run of records from Led Zeppelin – issued after the death of legendary drummer John Bomham – but the set's also way more than just an endpoint, as many of the tracks return to the group's beginning – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
Led Zeppelin at peak power – mixing hard rock bombast with deep, genuine love for blues and folk guitars!
