An incredible first album from The Moody Blues – way way different than any of their later high-concept work, and much more in the best soul and R&B-drenched material of the UK mod scene of the time! A number of cuts here are remakes of American soul tracks – including their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Moody Blues —
Present ... LP Threshold, 1983. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
A late 70s freewheeling synth extravanza from Don Muro – one the covers a lot stylistic territory on its 2 sides – from fusiony instrumentals, to cosmic keyboard dance music, to anthemic spacey rock – and it does all incredibly well! Muro plays an array of synthesizer systems and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a small press flaw that clicks a bit on "Current Events". Cover has light wear and a sticker spot.)
A repackaged version of the first Capitol album by Fred Neil – issued here under the title of the one tune on the album that became a hit, but not under Fred's version! (The hit was sung in the film Midnight Cowboy by Nilsson.) The album is really one of the best places to start with Fred's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Light green label pressing. Cover has some light wear.)
A classic set from these groovy guys – with tracks that include "Warm Baby", "Elf Song", "I'm Here Now", "Woman"," I'm Just Waitin", "You're Gonna Be Mine", and "Love You So Much". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing. Cover has a bumped corner, some light wear, and a cutout hole.)
A mix of rootsy rock and more sophisticated modes – played by a 70s group that features Dave Brubeck's son on a variety of different instruments! The group may well be best known for their work with the older Brubeck on other records – but they stand nicely on their own here too, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The steely cover's an apt one – as New Order have still largely held onto their edge here – those raspy guitars and moodier moments that first marked their early work – all elements that keep things compelling amidst some of the more tuneful moments of the songs! There's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The rare final album by Harry Nilsson – cut for Mercury after his long streak of brilliant, idiosyncratic records for RCA – but it was only released in the UK and Japan at the time! It's a charming, laidback effort on Nilsson's part – as stylistically varied as you'd expect from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The pairing of the early genius of Harry Nilsson and Randy Newman – one of the most sublime albums of the early 70s! Nilsson Sings Newman, written by a then fairly unknown Randy Newman was certainly an odd project to undertake for an artist generally regarded as a songwriting talent, but boy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover is in great shape but has a small cutout notch. Vinyl has a small pressing flaw that causes a very short click on side 1, track 2.)
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band —
Ricochet ... LP Liberty, Late 60s. Sealed ...
More of the Nitty Gritty's nutty country rock pop groovy stuff from the late 60's. Shouldn't work, but it does, and in a nice way. Titles include "Happy Fat Annie", "Truly Right", "Search The Sky", and "Shadow Dream Song". LP, Vinyl record album
Laura Nyro's second album in her legendary early run for Columbia Records – and an effort that's a bit more dramatic than the first! Laura's handling all arrangements herself this time, and they're conducted by Jimmy Haskell – but the overall sound is almost as spare as if Nyro were ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has ring & edgewear and a spot on the spine where tape was removed.)

Mercy ... LP Buddah, Late 60s. Very Good- ...
One of the rare rock-oriented acts on the Mainsteam jazz label in the late 60s and 70s – a super rare hybrid of heavy psychedelic rock, HUGE percussion and electric Eastern string effectsthat's got us hooked! The group mixes heavy use of the electric sitar Danelectro started producing at the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Gas & Electric —
Get It On ... LP Bright Orange, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ...
The long buried first album by Bay Area rock & soul combo Pacific Gas & Electric – cut for the Bright Orange label in 1968! PG&E cut some great little numbers in the late 60s & early 70s, and we're thinking they MUST have kicked some serious arse live – and there are ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Uncensored cover version on Power, with a half split top seam.)
Genius work from Pearls Before Swine – the haunting folk rock combo that was headed by singer/songwriter Tom Rapp! We'd place Rapp in a unique category with Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and a rare few other talents who could mix together styles and come up with a sound that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groovy 60s Brit pop from the team of Peter Asher and Gordon Waller – two cats who have a way of drawing on the harmonies of the Merseybeat generation, then sending the tunes home with a bit more individual charm! Most tracks here are hits from other artists – both British and American ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has wide clear tape on the bottom seam, a peeled strip on front, and a small sticker on back.)
One of the first albums that had Shawn Phillips expanding his groove past more traditional folky rock – a set that features some strong electric touches and a surprisingly funky undercurrent at times! The topics and structures of the tunes still have a fair bit of folk in their roots, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)
A wonderful bit of funky folksy rock – one that has Shawn Phillips working with members of The Headhunters, including Paul Jackson, Bill Summers, and Mike Clark. The best of the cuts may well be "Hie Away", one that juxtaposes Phillips' artsy folk vocals against some smooth jazz ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Plant & See ... LP White Whale/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)...

Led by Native American guitarist and lead vocalist Willie ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A legendary set from the Canadian 60s underground – a landmark record from a group who've gone onto become huge over the years with psych collectors, even though they never cracked the charts (or the US market) at the time! The set's way more than just another obscure rock release – as ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The earliest incarnation of the Plastic Ono band, and more or les a one off, with an all star line up that included Eric Clapton and Klaus Voorman alongside Lennonand Ono.
