✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ BandNorthern Lights – Southern Cross ... LP
Capitol, 1975. Very Good ... $8.99
The best from The Band in years – their first all originals studio effort in a few years, and one that deservedly re-established them creatively, if not commercially, as one of the all time great rock bands! Robbie Robertson is solely credited for the compositions, but make no mistake, this record is by The Band – not just notes committed to a page and played – it's a fluid, intuitive and timeless album that we love nearly as much as anything they'd ever done – possibly as much as Big Pink or self-titled, even more on some days. Essential! Titles include "Rags & Bones", "Acadian Driftwood", "Hobo Jungle", "Ophelia", "Ring Your Bell", Jupiter Hollow" and "It Makes No Difference". LP, Vinyl record album

BangBang (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol/Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy vinyl pressing!)

✨✧ BangMother/Bow To The King ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
Bang have opened up their lineup a bit since their tight debut as a trio – but the core energy of their music is very firmly still in place – right down to the excellent sound they get recording down at the Criteria Studios in Miami! These guys are one of those groups that should have been huge – tight, focused, and incredibly hard-rocking – gifted with a great ear for penning a tune, and a strong ability to find really fresh formations from the familiar lineup of guitar, bass, and drums! There's a open, honest quality to the album that makes it wonderfully free from cliche – as does the lack of any posturing on any group members either a sense of unified cohesion that some of their contemporaries might have taken as a model. Drummer Tony D'Iorio isn't in the group this time around, but he's still helping write the tunes – and the drums are taken over by the equally strong Duris Maxwell and Bruce Gary. Some tracks also feature some surprising soulful backing vocals by singers Donny Gerrard, Clydie King, and Vanetta Fields – and titles include "Mother", "Humble", "Idealist Realist", "Bow To The King", "Tomorrow", and "Feel The Hurt".

✨✧ Beach BoysBeach Boys' Christmas Album ... CD
Capitol, 1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A harmony heaven way to enjoy the Holiday! The group's version of Christmas has to be one of the best-ever recorded in rock and roll – and given the undercurrent of sadness that was coming forth in their non-Holiday hits of the period, the style here is perfect to fit the melancholy mood of the Christmas tunes – even some of the more upbeat numbers! Production is great too – beautiful enough to hold up strongly after all these years – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "Merry Christmas Baby", "Christmas Day", "Little Saint Nick", "The Man With All The Toys", "Santa's Beard", "Auld Lang Syne", "Frosty The Snowman", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas".

Beach BoysFriends ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
An under-discovered album from The Beach Boys – and one of our favorite records by the group! The set's kind of a slinking back to the personal, quirky territory of Smile, but with a somewhat more intimate, less-ambitious feel – one that comes off like a tapestry of simple expressions from the group – surprisingly heartfelt at times, fragile at others, and always with a soul-bearing quality that's really wonderful. This one's light years from their surfer pop of a few years before – even a strong maturation from the Pet Sounds set of just two years back – and the harmonies really have the group hitting new strides – hardly a copycat of earlier male group modes, pure harmony heaven for the late 60s! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Friends", "Transcendental Meditation", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Wake The World", "Meant For You", "Busy Doing Nothin", "Little Bird", "Be Here in the Mornin'", and "Diamond Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysPet Sounds – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (4CDs/Blu-ray/book) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. New Copy 4CD & Blu-ray ... $72.99 79.99
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". Amazing book-style version – comes in a hardcover book, with 48 pages of notes and photos! Includes 4CDs – CD1 features the full mono and stereo mixes of the album, plus 2 promo spots for "Caroline No", unused background vocals for "Don't Talk", and the track "Hang On To Your Ego". CD2 features 27 tracks from the Pet Sound Sessions. CD3 features 8 more Sessions tracks – and 16 more Alternate Versions – different mixes and speeds of tracks on the album. CD4 features 11 unreleased live versions of songs from the album – recorded from the late 60s through the early 80s – plus 11 more instrumental versions of the songs – and "Good Vibrations (master track with partial vocal). Blu-Ray disc features 5.1 Surround Sound mono, stereo, and stereo instrumental versions – plus additonal album material in 5.1 Surround and stereo. CD

Beach BoysSurfin' Safari ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... $8.99
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

Beach BoysToday! ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Very Good- ... $7.99
A pre-Pet Sounds moment of genius from The Beach Boys – a record with some surprisingly wonderful songs tucked in amongst more familiar rockers! There's a growing brilliance here that's clearly evident in Brian Wilson's production, the tunes tender themes, and the complicated harmonics used to carry the whole thing off – a mixture of sadness, lust, and frustration that shows up beautifully on tunes like "Please Let Me Wonder", "She Knows Me Too Well", "In The Back Of My Mind", "Good To My Baby", and "Don't Hurt My Sister". And sure, the album does include the clunky "Bull Session With Big Daddy" – but that's offset by hits like "Dance Dance Dance", "Help Me, Ronda", and "Do You Wanna Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysWild Honey ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Very Good ... $24.99
A back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older rock themes and new adult ones here – sung by a group who's really growing into their emotions, and approaching things from new directions than in the past. Heartbreak and happiness are both center stage here – often at the same time – and titles include a great remake of Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her", the haunting "Let The Wind Blow", the hippie-esque "Country Air", and lots more nice ones like "Wild Honey", "Aren't You Glad", "A Thing Or Two", "How She Boogalooed It", "Here Comes The Night", and "Mama Says".

BeatlesHelp ... CD
Capitol/Apple, 1965. Used ... $2.99
A great little record that's kind of a prequel for Rubber Soul – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that we always forget about, until we drop the needle – the revel in its sweet blend of Beatles modes on tracks that include "Help", "The Night Before", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Yesterday", "Act Naturally", "It's Only Love", "Ticket To Ride", and "I Need You". Original 14 track UK lineup – much different than the American release! CD
