Rare bit of lost rocky funk, recorded by Alan Douglas for his short-lived 70s label. The record includes a lot of nice keyboards by Neil Larson, funky drums by Phillip Wilson, and some heavy guitars by Buzz Feiten. There are also some guest playing by Airto, Ray Barretto, and Randy Brecker – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unusual relic from Gang Of Four's years on Warner in the US – a "special edition 12", designed to re-promote the group's harder sound to an American market! The single features 3 studio classics – "To Hell With Poverty", "Capital (It Fails Us Now)", and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
What can we say about this album that the rock literati hasn't already expounded on? Probably very little, but we can chime in with our agreement that this is without doubt one of best post-punk albums ever recorded! Spring-tight guitars, call-and-response vocals, and of course those terse, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
This one's actually the group's sort of second album – at least in the US – with 4 tracks that really follow nicely in the feel of Entertainment! Tracks were recorded between 1978 and 1980 – and all have a nice raw guitar sound. Includes the massive "Armalite Rifle", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Gang Of Four —
Hard ... LP Warner, 1983. Near Mint- ...
A bit of an attempt to dive into early 80s mainstream soul – and one that stands the test of time a lot better than we would have expected, despite the super-polished production that all but buries the group's earlier harder-edged style. There's a lot of really nice soulful backing vocals, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An album we come back to more and more over the years – a bit more subtle than some of the other Gabriel-era Genesis records, but in a good way! Titles include "Aisle Of Plenty", "More Fool Me", "Firth Of Fifth", "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Missing the insert. Cover has a promo sticker and cutout notch.)

(Yellow label pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)
A perfectly balanced little set from Gentle Giant – a record that's progressive, but never overly jamming – jazzy, but still rock-based enough to contain some great straight ahead tunes – and whimsical, but never too flowery or hippy dippy! Gentle Giant were one of the few who ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Archives ... LP Drag City/Galactic Zoo Disk, 1970s/1980s. Near Mint- ...
Vintage 70s & 80s recordings from the George-Edwards Group – whose recorded legacy, we thought, was held almost completely by the cosmic psych/synth folk rarity 38:38 LP – but here's more from their personal Archives! Ed and Ray both provide vocals, keyboards and percussion – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Important work from Robert Fripp and the brothers Peter & Michael Giles – recorded a year before the first King Crimson album with a mad sound that's somewhere in between Bowie's early Deram recordings, and some of the Syd Barrett work with Pink Floyd! Although Fripp's guitar figures ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(70s UK pressing, SPA 423, with light blue labels. Cover has a partially unglued bottom seam.)
One of the strangest records you'll ever buy! Even on our storied pages this one's a bit of anoddball to describe – kind of a sound play of words, songs, noises, and lots of odd effects – an effort of classic rock proportions, but the brainchild of Lol Creme and Kevin Godley after ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The first true moment of genius from the legendary Curt Boettcher – an early 60s folk-rock set that's already overflowing with the warm harmonies and creative arrangements of his later classics!

(Mono pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting.)
A wonderful early album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's got a lot more to offer than just the famous title track! Lesley's just a young gal at this time, but she sings in this lusty, personal style that's a lot richer than most female pop of the period – and which also shows the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Green ... LP GangGreen, Mid 80s. Very Good+ ...
A lost treasure from the mid 80s Chicago rock scene – the self-titled, self-released first record from Green – with ultra catchy power pop melodies and an excitability that's as infectious as anything that came out of the Chi and other midwestern cities at the time! Green has both a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has radio station stamps and sticker.)
A psychedelic gem recorded at Gold Star Studios at the end of the 60s – one that brings a fair bit of British influences into play with the trippier sounds of the American underground of the time! This Atlantic debut by the group shows a tremendous amount of promise – and an approach ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker and some marker. Label has an ink stamp.)
Big, heavy late 60s British rock from Gun – with the raw, lumbering and bluesy (or better, bloozy) power trio core that's fleshed out in the studio with horns and other more sweeping touches! It's wild stuff, a genuine precursor to heavy metal in the searing guitars, thundering drums and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful little album from Tim Hardin – a live session that perfectly sums up all the brilliance of his previous two Verve records, but with an even more intimate, personal vibe! Hardin reprises some of his previous tunes, but also adds in a few more – and works with a very cool ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Tim Hardin's last album for Verve – and a record that has a bit of a different vibe than his previous three sets! Although still in folksy territory, Tim's really drawn a lot from blues as well – and the set adds in some electric guitar riffing and harmonica, to emphasize the blusier ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really obscure Tim Hardin album – recorded in the UK, with the same sort of laidback style as his excellent Suite for Susan Moore – and featuring a bit of guest guitar from Peter Frampton! LP, Vinyl record album
Wonderful wonderful! The third album by Harpers Bizarre – and one that shows them growing in leaps and bounds with each new release! The record is a sublime fusion of sweet pop California 60s harmonies (ala The Sandpipers or The Lettermen), baroque arrangements with a fake dreamy nostalgia ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Keef Hartley always keeps things cool, and this album's no exception to that rule – a wicked set of jazz rock numbers with a hard undercurrent of funk! Hartley's drums are great, and really kick most tunes into gear – putting more punch into the tunes than on other albums of this ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Way more than just a "hits" collection – as the package featuers a huge amount of unissued tracks and unissued takes! Titles include the classic (and sublime) original version of "Susie Q" – plus "Lulu", "Four Letter Word", "Little Pig" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stone classic from the legendary Hawkwind – a set that's steeped in all their best space rock modes of the 70s – yet which also has a wonderfully sharp sort of focus too! Keyboards, guitars, and drums soar to the skies right from the start – prefacing an intensity that so many ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The wit and wisdom of Lee Hazlewood – served up here on one of his stunning sessions for Reprise Records from the 60s!

A beautiful early 70s psych folk set from the angelic vocal and songwriting duo of Pat Gefell and Jo D Andrews – their Refuge album for Ovation in 1973 – highlighted by their gorgeous vocals, but committed with lovely, lightly soaring arrangements!
