Captain Beefheart & the Magic BandClear Spot (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
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!)

Johnny CashJohnny Cash At Folsom Prison ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98
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.

Gang Of FourSongs Of The Free (180 gram splattered colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 21.98
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing actually seems pretty well thought out – taking the heady politics of earlier records, and putting them into catchy guitar-driven dancefloor tracks that clearly get the message out to a whole new audience of converts! Titles include "Call Me Up", "I Love A Man In Uniform", "Life It's A Shame", "I Will Be A Good Boy", "The History Of The World", "Muscle For Brains", "Of The Instant", and the sublime William Blake-inspired groover "We Live As We Dream, Alone".

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)... $34.99
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.

✨✧ Black CrowesThree Snakes One Charm (180 gram pressing) ... LP
American, 1990. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A mid career gem from the Black Crowes – a bit more akin to Amorica in style then their earlier or later records, but not as densely layered – and with overall excellence really kind of sneaks up on you! The songs often start like loose, midtempo southern rock with a touch of soul but then a catchy chorus will kick in seemingly out of nowhere and take it somewhere else entirely.. This was a band with passionate love of some of the best 60s & 70s rock ever recorded, and the rare skill to sound like they should've been there but somehow missed a turn and wound up in the 1990s. Such good stuff! Titles includes "Under A Mountain", "Nebakanezer", "Blackberry", "Good Friday", "Let Me Share The Ride", "Bring On, Bring On", "Evil Eye", "Just Say You're Sorry", "Pimper's Paradise", "How Much For Your Wings", "Better When You're Not Alone" and "One Mirror Too Many".

✨✧ Jack WhiteLazaretto (180 gram vinyl – with download and 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks) ... LP
Third Man, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to Nashville record biz provocateur/label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto. Unpredictable twists and turns abound, but it's all held together by an undercurrent of pummeling, unpretentious rock and roll, with a rootsy swagger. Ever upping the ante on hella cool vinyl releases, Lazarretto is a 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with a 33 1/3 main track list, and 2 hidden tracks beneath the center labels, one that plays at 45 and one that plays at 78. Oh, and also a hologram visual effect. We're thinking that maybe his next record will summon a genie that grants you 3 wishes. Titles include "Three Women", "Lazaretto", "Temoprary Ground", "Would You Fight For My Love?", "High Ball Stepper", "Just One Drink", "Alone In My Home", That Black Bat Licorice", "Entitlement", "I Think I Found The Culprit" and "Want And Able". LP, Vinyl record album
(A 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with 2 vinyl-only tracks hidden beneath the center labels – one that plays at 78 RPM, and one at 45 RPM! Also includes album download.)

✨✧ Janis Joplin with Big Brother & The Holding CompanLive At Winterland 68 (180 gram vinyl pressing) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Columbia/Brookvale, 1968. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Powerful document of Janis with Big Brother live at Winterland in the spring of '68 – with recordings of their biggest and best-remembered numbers, and ones that didn't get nearly as much play over the years! Truly awesome work, with Janis and the band working their inimitable magic – all the more incredible given the potent period in late 60s San Francisco. "Down On Me", "Flower In The Sun", "I Need A Man To Love", "Easy Rider", "Combination Of The Two", "Farewell Song", "Piece Of My Heart", "Catch Me Daddy", "Magic Of Love", "Summertime", "Light Is Faster Than Sound", "Ball And Chain" and "Down On Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ZombiesBBC Radio Sessions (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Varese, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great side of the too-small Zombies catalog of the 60s – rare material recorded for BBC Radio – almost all of it with the same sort of great fidelity as their famous singles! The music here spans the years 1964 to 1968 – starting with some early material with a grittier edge, and featuring a surprising handful of soul music covers, too – including tracks by Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and Bo Diddley – in addition to the group's own originals. Covers include "This Old Heart Of Mine", "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", "Just A Little Bit", "Soulville", "It's All Right", and "For You My Love" – next to Zombies originals "She's Not There", "What More Can I Do", "Friends Of Mine", "Whenever You're Ready", and "Just Out Of Reach". Also includes some cool other bits – including "Kenny Everett Interview & Jingle", plus "Colin Talks About The Continent", "The Zombies Find America", and "Different Instruments" – all interview passages. LP, Vinyl record album
