Piltdown Men/Ernie Fields/Earl PalmerPiltdown Men Ride Again – The Capitol Instrumentals With Ernie Fields & His Orchestra & Earl Palmer ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The complete recordings of The Piltdown Men – collected here with a host of other excellent instrumentals from early 60s Capitol Records! The first half of the set features tracks from the short run of The Piltdown Men – a studio-based instrumental project headed by young arrangers Lincoln Mayoga and Ed Cobb – with a lineup that featured top LA talents like Bob Bain and Tommy Tedesco on guitars, plus some honking sax from Scott Gordon – all on a host of songs that have a very strong caveman theme in the title! Yet the overall approach is more rock instrumental – kind of halfway between R&B honkers of the late 50s, and the surf sounds to come (and in fact, you could make an argument that this material prefaces that trend in a great way) – on titles that include "Piltdown Rides Again", "McDonald's Cave", "Goodnight Mrs Flintstone, "Big Lizzard", "Flint Stomp", and "Brontosaurus Stomp". CD then moves onto include 9 more instrumentals from Ernie Fields – an artist who'd already recorded previously on the world of the LA R&B scene in the 50s – and who brings a jazzy vibe to cuts that include "Adam's Rib", "Leap Frog", "Green Green", "Birmingham Jail", and "I'll Cry Instead". Last up are three tracks from the mighty drummer Earl Palmer – "Drum Village (parts 1 & 2)" and "Swingin Drums". CD

BandMusic From Big Pink ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
The landmark first album from The Band – and along with the follow-up, it's among the greatest records of its time – which is all the more astounding given how independent of late 60s trends it is! Each member of The Band brings such inimitable textures – Garth Hudson's imposing organ grooves, Richard Manuel's aching tenor vocals, Rick Danko's voice and distinctive bass lines, Levon Helm's behind-the-beat drumming and the country wisdom of his voice, Robertson's guitar mastery – this really was THE Band. Includes "Tears Of Rage", "In A Station", "The Weight", "Long Black Veil", "Chest Fever", "Lonesome Suzie", "This Wheels On Fire", "I Shall Be Released" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

BangBang ... CD
Capitol/Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
Heavy rock from this tripped-out trio – a Miami combo that really jams it up with some fuzzed-out lead guitar, snapping drums, and heavy bass! The sound is lean, but at times there's a Bowie-like quality to the vocals – plus the same sort of heavy energy of The Man Who Sold The World album – with the guitar getting all fuzzy and powerful, but never in an overindulgent way! Drums are super-strong too – almost giving the set a rock funk vibe at times – but the main showcase is clearly on the guitar from Frank Glicken and lead vocals from Frank Ferrara – two Franks who should have been huge. Titles include "Future Shock", "Questions", "Come With Me", "The Queen", "Redman", and "Our Home". CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (2CD set – mono/stereo/live/instrumental) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Great 2CD version – features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album – plus a 13 track instrumental album, and 11 previously-unreleased live recordings of tracks from the album from the late 60s through the early 80s.

Beach BoysShut Down Vol 2 ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good- ... $14.99
The Beach Boys' installment in Capitol's hot rod-themed Shut Down series – the first edition of which was devoted to a host of different artists! It's clear that even in this setting, The Beach Boys have way more to offer than just a few gimmicky car songs – as the record offers some of the early group's most tender, personal moments – real early gems like "The Warmth Of The Sun" and "Don't Worry Baby" - mixed in with more playful numbers like "Fun Fun Fun", "This Car Of Mine", "In The Parkin Lot", "Shut Down Part 2", and "Keep An Eye On Summer". It's this mix that really gets at the group's genius at the time – maturity creeping out amidst the youthful themes, in ways that few other 60s acts could ever hope to match. LP, Vinyl record album

BeatlesLive At The Hollywood Bowl (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Capitol, 1964/1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A fresh visit to the legendary Hollywood Bowl performances by The Beatles in 1964 and 1965 – concert sounds that were originally released in the 70s, but are presented here with great new remastering from the original tapes – plus bonus tracks too! The Beatles stopped touring in 1966 – famously in America – but these tracks capture them when they were at the height of their international touring frenzy, as documented in the film Eight Days A Week, which was the inspiration for this package. Bonus tracks include "You Can't Do That", "Baby's In Black", "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" – and other titles include "Twist & Shout", "Ticket To Ride", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Boys", "Help", "All My Loving", "She Loves You", and "Long Tall Sally".

Capitol, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $13.99
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess! The set's incredibly strong throughout – filled with some of the new post-Peppers ideas explored by the group, yet also with some catchier numbers too – great sing-songy tracks that undoubtedly were a big mainstream influence to the world of late 60s psych! Titles include "Blue Jay Way", "The Fool On The Hill", "Flying", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Penny Lane", and "Baby You're A Rich Man". LP, Vinyl record album

A great American-only album from the Rubber Soul generation – the last one made specifically for the US market because of the different release patterns in the US and UK – with a number of their greatest songs of the period! Features a bunch of classics, and it ultimately holds together better creatively than some of their other US-only LP – but it also encapsulates a fascinating period in Beatles history, summing up end months of their middle period, very soon to segue into more psychedelic territory. Includes "Nowhere Man", "Drive My Car", "Dr Robert", "Act Naturally", "Day Tripper", "And Your Bird Can Sing", and "If I Needed Someone". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The incredible debut of Blondie! Before branching out into 70s NYC club culture informed pop, Blondie was first-and-formost an incredibly cool punk-era rock & roll band, though never really straight-up punkers themselves – filtering a love of 60s girl group vocals and seedier surf rock influences into catchy songs still raucous enough for CBGBs. While the live gig grit is buffed out of in the studio, there's no lack of game-changing greatness here – and titles include "X Offender", "Little Girls Lie", "In The Sun", "In The Flesh", "Rifle Range", "Kung Fu Girls", "The Attack Of The Giant Ants" and more.

Tony BrunoHell's Angels '69 ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $49.99
An excellent biker soundtrack – very different than the usual bag! For this one, Tony Bruno has come up with some great instrumentals – many of them jazzier than you'd think, and a few with some nice funky Capitol instrumental touches – not so much studio fuzz guitar, as they are groovy numbers that are a lot less hairy than the guys on screen in the movie! The change is a nice one – not as rockish as the regular biker soundtrack – although there are some vocal numbers too, done in the Tower/Sidewalk sort of style. Yet it's the instrumentals that really send us – and which make this album well worth seeking out! Titles include "Chase Of Death", "Goofin", "Bass Lake Run", "Hang On Tight", and "Al and Alice".

(Cover has some edge wear.)
