Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... LP
fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

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!)

EternalsEspiritu Zombi (with bonus download) ... LP
New Atlantis, 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

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.

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".

✨✧ KinksSleepwalker (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Arista/Friday Music, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... On November 25, 2016
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". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Saturday, November 26. It is in limited supply – and by nature of the Record Store Day rules, it will be offered for sale first to customers who visit the Dusty Groove retail outlet in Chicago on Black Friday.

✨✧ Johnny CashJohnny Cash At Folsom Prison ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ 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.
