Gang Of FourSongs Of The Free (180 gram splattered colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
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.

SonicsFifty (Here Are The Sonics/Boom/Volume 3) (3LP box set – with download) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Etiquette/Light In The Attic, 1960s. New Copy 3 LPs ... $48.99
The complete Etiquette catalog of the garage rock pioneers The Sonics – with the Here Are The Sonics and Boom LPs, plus a third LP of rarities! Here the debut of the mighty, maniacal Sonics – one of the most raucous rock & roll albums ever! Here they unleashed a fury on r&b and older rock & roll cover tunes – plus incendiary originals such as "The Witch", "Psycho" and "Strychnine" – in a way that was in a lot of ways unprecedented, and became hugely influential. How much roaring rock do you need? You need this much!!! Other tracks include "Do You Love Me", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Boss Hoss", "Money", "Walking The Dog", Nighttime Is The Right Time", "Good Golly Miss Molly" and more. Boom also finds 'em blasting at their best – a mostly-noisy, guitar-driven, garage-drenched sound that also sometimes slides into surprisingly more soulful territory too! The group are way more than just another gritty garage combo – and have a rough-edged sense of excitement that easily matches some of the best early work of bigger UK groups of the 60s – especially given The Sonics' clear love for American R&B and soul. Titles include "Cinderella", "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark", "Let The Good Times Roll", "He's Waitin", "Louie Louie", "Jenny Jenny", "Don't You Just Know It", and "Shot Down". Also includes Volume 3 – a 10 track LP of alternate versions, non-album singles and live tracks – plus 36 page booklet and a poster! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 3000 copies. Includes poster, 36-page book and download.)

TomsToms ... LP
Black Sheep, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A rare slice of power pop from the end of the 70s – just the kind of indie label gem that makes the genre so great! In a world where so many other groups were getting punky or quirky, The Toms keep things tight and right – really focusing on catchy melodies and well-penned rhythms – delivered with a simple, straightforward approach that's free from gimmicks, but plenty darn compelling. Lyrics are pretty fresh, but also have a sort of "instant classic" feel – making you wonder if you'd heard the songs before, given the way they grab you right away. Titles include "Let's Be Friends Again", "You Must Have Crossed My Mind", "Other Boys Do", "The Door", "It's Needless", "The Flame", "Think About Me", and "Better Than Anyone Else".

TortoiseStandards (with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2001. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
This groundbreaking Chicago combo once again moves away from the pack on what might be their best album – leaving behind the host of imitators that sprung up in their wake. Standards still shows a fascination with the spare and revolving rhythms that graced the group's first few releases, but it's also a lot more complex musically – with plenty of added electronics, noisy guitars, keyboards, and some of the most sophisticated production to date – proof that these guys are great, and always growing as artists. Titles include "Seneca", "Eros", "Benway", "Eden 2", "Blackjack", "Speakeasy", and "Six Pack". LP, Vinyl record album

ZombiesBBC Radio Sessions (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Varese, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
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.

✨✧ 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)... Temporarily 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
(Numbered, limited edition of 4000! Includes booklet!)

✨✧ MotorheadMotorhead (clear & black swirled vinyl pressing) ... LP
Drastic Plastic, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ BuzzcocksAnother Music In A Different Kitchen (180 gram translucent orange colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Rhino/Parlophone, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first album by The Buzzcocks! To this day, the band is rightly regarded as one of the pivotal "singles bands" of the punk and post punk eras, but their best proper albums are unjustly overlooked nowadays because of this. This easily one of their best, with some of the most fantastic melodic punk ever made, and some relatively ambitious arrangements on some of the tunes, which veer into a more hypnotic guitar sound then the more straight forward ear candy of the catchy singles. Essential! Titles include "Fast Cars", "No Reply" "Get On Our Own", "I Don't Mind", "Autonomy" and more, plus the singles "Orgasm Addict", 'Whatever Happened To", "Oh S**t" and more.

✨✧ 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.)

✨✧ Carl PerkinsDance Album (translucent colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Columbia/ORG, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Roots rock mastery from Carl Perkins – perhaps the most stylistically trailblazing of the Sun Records rock stable of the mid-to-late 50s/so-called Million Dollar Quartet – and this is perhaps THE greatest beginning-to-end record by any one of those cats during their Sun years! Perkins is not only an early rock firebrand with talent as great as his more famous peers, he has a way of bridging rural roots to live wire rock to rollicking rhythm & blues more seamlessly than those guys. His Dance Album is one incredible tune after another, including "Blue Suede Shoes", "Sure To Fall", "Tennessee", "Only You", "Wrong Yo Yo", "Matchbox", "Boppin The Blues", "Gone Gone Gone", "Honey Don't", "Your True Love", "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 1500 copies.)
