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 ... $14.99
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
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with a light click on side 1, tracks 1 & 2.)

Beach BoysSurfin' Safari ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good- ... $4.99
The album that first launched the Beach Boys on an unsuspecting 60s scene – and a record that really raised the bar for rock and roll at Capitol Records! Although based around their early "Surfin Safari" hit, the album already shows that the group's got way more to offer than filler between the singles – a rich approach to their music that takes the 50s harmony styles of The Four Freshmen, and turns it on even more youthful, yearning themes – sometimes with a gimmick, sometimes with a surprisingly upfront sense of emotion. Titles include "Heads You Win Tails I Lose", "Cuckoo Clock", "Moon Dawg", "The Shift", "Ten Little Indians", "Chug A Lug", "Surfin Safari", and "Little Miss America". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing, with marker on the labels. Cover has a clear tape along the top seam & a name in marker.)

✨✧ Beach BoysThat's Why God Made The Radio ... CD
Capitol, 2012. Used ... $1.99
A surprisingly great comeback for The Beach Boys – working here with Brian Wilson at the production helm, in a mode that really recalls the glory of the group's post-Pet Sounds years! We'll be honest that we were initially cringing at the title – and expected the worst – but there's a compelling, charming quality here that comes not just from the group's well-crafted harmonies, or the sensitive and careful production – but also from the fact that these guys have aged a heck of a lot, and seem to bring a sense of humanity to the music they wouldn't have had before! It's almost like that early 20s moment when the Boys were starting to grow up and bringing a new sense of pain to their previous teen lyrics – but recast here in a post-middle age mode that's even more human and honest – yet somehow still served up with all the sweetness that's always made the group great! It's that mix of sweet sounds and bittersweet undercurrents that really makes the album shine – a balance that even Brian Wilson never managed to capture this well in some of his own solo projects over the past few decades. So our hat's off to the group (showing the same bald spot that most of them have too) – thanks for a nice album that includes the cuts "Shelter", "The Private Life Of Bill & Sue", "Think About The Days", "Isn't It The Time", "Pacific Coast Highway", "Summer's Gone", and "From There To Back Again".

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

BlondieBlondie ... LP
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.
