The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Hidden Cameras —
Awoo ... LP Arts & Crafts (Canada), 2006. Near Mint- ...
Steve Hillage —
L ... LP Virgin/Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the best-remembered solo albums by Steve Hillage – a record that tightens things up a bit more from his debut as a leader, but which still keeps most of the best progressive elements nicely intact! Hillage has a bit more presence here as a star – but at a slightly fuzzy level ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A heavy duty bit of bluesy rock from Catfish Bob Hodge – produced for Westbound's Eastbound subsidiary, with an approach that's similar to the Ruth Copeland projects that were on that label, kind of a mix of rock and funk, with soulful overtones of the Detroit scene. Titles include "I ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Chas Hodges, Dave Peacock, Gerry Hogan & Ian Walla —
Oily Rags ... LP Signature, 1984. Near Mint- ...
The second album of Brit Invasion greatness from The Hollies – the reworked US version of their album Hollies that came out in the UK – armed with more original material than their earlier LP, but the group's skillful way with songs penned by others – including Curtis Mayfield ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Some of the most tripped-out music ever from The Holy Modal Rounders – and that's saying a lot, given the nature of the group! This unique early album on ESP features two side-long tracks – both of which are mini-suites of sort, and filled with odd sounds, weird themes, and a strange ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An excellent album of party grooves from The Hombres – a bit sunshine pop, a bit folk rock, but with some nice earthy touches that almost bring in a bit of a beat group feel to the set! The group's got a nice Hammond organ undercurrent – spinning out in the style that you'd hear ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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! The rest of the album is a diverse mix of covers and slightly more psychedelia influenced numbers. LP, 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
Dreamy pop from the great Brian Hyland – one of those 60s voices we can never get enough of! This set's a bit sadder, and a bit more sophisticated than some of Brian's earlier work – with a floating kind of approach that moves past simple pop, into a realm that shows the young singer ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
These guys will forever be known for the jazzy grooving title hit – "Vehicle", a brassy driving number that seems as if it's always being used in some sort of car commercial (which must net these guys a lot of royalties!) – but which is usually mistaken by others for being the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing. Cover has light wear. Label has a small name in pen.)

International Submarine Band —
Safe At Home ... LP Sundazed, 1968. Near Mint- (reissue)...
Seminal early country rock from Gram Parsons and the International Submarine Band – cut soon before Gram jumped ship to the Byrds for the legendary Sweetheart Of The Rodeo LP! The one-and-only International Submarine Band LP is the first official full length album from Gram Parsons, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second set from the Jam, and a great batch of sharp post punk cuts for Mods young and old! Whether it's anthems like the title track and "All Around The World", their rousing taking on Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" or mellower numbers like "Tonight At ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some waviness and a split bottom seam.)
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. Cover has a peeled spot from sticker removal.)
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A bit of old, and a bit of new – and includes some great live material on the second half, including the extended "By Kind Permission Of" and "Dharma For One" – and the great "Christmas Song". Other titles include "Bouree", "Song For ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing, with green labels – in hardcover book-like design, with booklet.)
Jethro Tull's classic prog album–or is it a parody of a prog album? The LP-length "song", filled with dense lyrics, alternates between hard rock, English folk, and classical. LP, Vinyl record album
( Amazing early pressing – in the full newspaper-like cover – with some light wear.)
Jethro Tull —
This Was ... LP Reprise/Chrysalis, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ...
Funky bluesy flutey magic from The Tull – includes a wonderful version of Roland Kirk's "Serenade To A Cuckoo" – plus "My Sunday Feeling", "Dharma For One", "It's Breaking Me Up", and "Song For Jeffrey". LP, Vinyl record album
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
Elton back when he was genius, and unlike anyone else – with titles that include "Ballad Of A Well Known Gun", "Son Of Your Father", "Burn Down The Mountain", "Love Song", and "Where To Now St Peter". LP, Vinyl record album
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+ ...
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
Lots of fuzz on this late 60s psych set – one of the harder-hitting albums on Mainstream Records at the time, delivered by a power quartet with a really heavy kick! Most instrumentation comes from just guitar, bass, and drums – but singer Pete Bailey also throws in a bit of harmonica ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really great little set from Joy Of Cooking – one of the best Bay Area groups to mix together rock, folk, and bits of country! Somehow, the group have a way of doing their thing without sounding hokey or "fake" – taking their groove way past simple references too roots they ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
