✨✧ Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... LP
fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. (Folk/Country, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

KinksSleepwalker (180 gram pressing) (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Arista/Friday Music, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A nice transition from the overwrought concept albums of mid 70s Kinks – and a shift into tighter, shorter, more condensed tunes that got the group firmly back on track! The concepts here are each confined to the space of a single tune – taking Ray and the group back to the best approaches of their initial 70s recordings – and coming up with a few really catchy numbers in the process! Titles include "Sleepwalker", "Sleepless Night", "Brother", "Full Moon", "Life Goes On", "Stormy Sky", and "Mr Big Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jesus & Mary ChainBarbed Wire Kisses – B-Sides & More (180 gram blood red colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, Mid/Late 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Prime period B-Sides, live recordings and other rarities from The Jesus & Mary Chain – great stuff from the first 5 or 6 years of their career – up there creatively with their best work ever! As dark-edged as the band is, they've often worn their influences on their sleeves over the years, be it the proto rock rawness of Bo Diddley, the catchy vocal style of early Beach Boys (though layered in razor wire) or the moody freneticism of Can – and they're all the more open with them on this collection,while still sounding like quintessential JMC. Classic! Includes "Kill Surf City", "Surfin' USA", "Upside Down", "Swing (Darklands Outtake)", "Just Out Of Reach", "Head", "Cracked", "Here It Comes Again", "Bo Diddley Is Jesus", "Rider", "Don't Ever Change", "Sidewalking", "Who Do You Love" and more.

✨✧ MotorheadMotorhead (clear & black swirled vinyl pressing) ... LP
Drastic Plastic, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
In case you stumbled upon the wrong record, they are Motorhead and they play rock n' roll! This is pre-Ace Of Spades, groundwork-paving, gnarly, primitive and incendiary Motorhead – too loud and fast for mainstream rockers, too menacing for fancy lads of all stripes, too gutteral and nasty even for most early metal fans – the world just didn't know what to make of Lemmy & co. They'd catch up, eventually. Titles include "Motorhead", "Vibrator", "Lost Johnny", "Iron Horse/Born To Lose"., "White Line Fever", "Keepers On The Road", our second favorite version of "Train Kept A Rollin'" (sorry, Aerosmith) and "The Watcher".

Gruppe SOKDer Grune Vogel ... LP
Black Pearl (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A set that's as freaky as you might guess from the cover – played by a German jazz ensemble who aren't afraid to let their hair down! The group's biggish, and the music has a great funky big band vibe – especially in the mode of some of the hippest large groups on the MPS label during their late 60s/early 70s golden years – a mode that was probably a strong inspiration for these guys too! Ulrich Gumpert is upfront on Hammond, Fender Rhodes, and a bit of acoustic piano – but there's also some very tight horns on many tracks, a strong electric bass and guitar in the rhythms, and some vocals from both Gumpert and female singer Barbara Volz – who can scat in a very cool way! A perfect balance between jazz, psych, and funk – with tracks that include "Modifikation", "Bruder John", "Sok Oriental", "Strandgut", "Fenster Auf", and "Du Lebst In Einer Grossen Stadt".

Led ZeppelinComplete BBC Sessions (5LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5LP ... $89.99 99.98
A massive collection of genius from Led Zeppelin – and material that has gone onto become a crucial part of their all-too-small catalog over the years! The work here was all recorded for the BBC in the years 1969 through 1971 – offering up a much wider picture of the group during these formative years, handled by some top-shelf production – which makes these tracks way better than some of the bootlegs and demos that fans had to rely on before these sides hit the record racks. And while some of this material has been out before, this huge package features the full sessions – along with 8 tracks that have never been issued before – all produced and remastered with supervision from Jimmy Page. Titles include "Immigrant Song", "Sunshine Woman", "I Can't Quit You Baby", "Communication Breakdown", "White Summer", "What Is & What Should Never Be", "Traveling Riverside Blues", "You Shook Me", "How Many More Times", "Heartbreaker", "The Girl I Love She Got Long Black Wavy Hair", "How Many More Times", and a very cool medley that lays some other tracks into "Whole Lotta Love".

Magical RingLight Flight/More & More ... LP
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An album with a really creepy cover, but a sound that's maybe a bit more down to earth overall – late 70s electronic rock, in a manner that's a bit like the generation of French groups like Space Art, or like the sound of the German scene when it was tightening things up a bit more from the prog generation! The tunes are shortish, and nicely catchy – almost clubby, if they didn't have so much cool, weird keyboards and electronics – although still nicely tuneful overall. Vocals are minor – sometimes making an appearance, almost in a spoken manner – but with much more focus on the instrumentation overall – and occasional sounds that almost hint at an 80s horror soundtrack mode. Titles include "Light Flight", "Fire Zone", "Wakemania", "Black Safari", "Touch As Much", "Spatial Feeling", and "Dreams In The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Light Flight/More & More ... CD 14.99

✨✧ BeckGuero ... LP
Interscope, 2005. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The return of avant pop/hip hop-inspired, playful and fun Beck after the stunning turn into melancholy and more baroque pop sound of Sea Change a couple years prior – working once again with The Dust Brothers! To Beck's credit, Guero doesn't sound so much like a throwback to "classic Beck" as much the next step forward, and it's a solid one full of memorable songs, oddball rap-inspired vocals, catchy choruses and freewheeling production. Titles include "E-Pro", "Girl", "Black Tambourine", "Scarecrow", "Go It Alone", "Farewell Ride", "Rental Call", "Emergency Exit" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny CashJohnny Cash At Folsom Prison ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest live albums ever, and probably THE best album Johnny Cash ever recorded! In 1969 Cash had more angst than you could shake a stick at – he just kicked drugs, and he hadn't had a big hit in years, so his respectful and thoughtful empathy for the audience of inmates not only cemented his persona as the real deal, but carries an air of dizzying emotion throughout the set. Appropriately filled with his darkest tunes, Folsom is one of the few cases in which a live recording of a hitmakers catalog is stronger and more vital than the studio versions. Includes "Folsom Prison Blues", "Dark As A Dungeon", "Cocaine Blues", "25 Minutes To Go", "Orange Blossom Special", "The Long Black Veil", "Dirty Old Egg-Suckin' Dog", plus "Jackson" and "Give My Love To Rose" featuring June Carter.

✨✧ Captain Beefheart & the Magic BandClear Spot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Maybe not as nuts as some earlier work by Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – but a pretty damn great record nonetheless – especially when compared to most of what was hitting the record racks in 1972! The Captain's still got all his wild and unbridled elements fully in place – even when the songwriting is a bit more straight – and the group's got lots of raspy acoustic touches on guitar, especially the "steel appendage guitar" played by Zoot Horn Rollo! A few tunes are actually catchy – and have backing vocals from The Blackberries – but in a way that may well be more tongue in cheek than anything else. Titles include "Low Yo Yo Stuff", "Sun Zoom Spark", "Clear Spot", "Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles", and "Golden Birdies". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very cool pressing – in the same sort of plastic sleeve as the original!)

✨✧ EternalsEspiritu Zombi (with bonus download) ... LP
New Atlantis, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Eternals have turned into some very deep cats over the years – and this album is a great culmination of all those changes – thanks to contributions from some key members of the Chicago jazz avant garde! The core energy of the group is still in place – boldly poetic lyrics from Damon Locks, riffing guitar from Wayne Montana, and dubby drums from Areif Sless-Kitain – but there's also some amazing elements at play here that really expand the sound – vibes from Jason Adasiewicz, cornet from Josh Berman, alto from Nick Mazzarella, flute from Nate Lepine, and bass from Matt Lux – all contemporaries of the group who really open up a collaborative spirit on the record. There's also added vocals from Tomeka Reid and Jenine O'Toole – which furthers the ensemble feel of the performance – and titles include "The Last Moment", "The End Has Begun", "Makeshift Satellite", "Opening Scene", "Blackout", "Destroy The Body", and "Unseen Force".
