VariousLove Hit Me – Decca Beat Girls 1962 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
The British scene of the 60s was filled with some tremendous work from a huge range of female artists – not just the bigger international names, like Lulu or Petula Clark, but also a host of even cooler, even groovier gals – like the artists collected on this set! There's a special sound to UK girl pop of the time – often a strong influence from soul music, which makes for some excellent rhythms throughout – that mod love of American R&B, moved into some even hipper territory during the beat years that span most of this collection. And amongst British labels, Decca was maybe the one with its ear most to the ground – able to pick up some great overlooked talents and get them onto singles, even if they never cut a full album – with a continued legacy of tracks that could even cross over to the Northern Soul scene at times. This package serves up a stunning array of these Decca label gems – with titles that include "Hey Boy" by Barry St John, "Little Boy" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, "Poor Old Johnny" by Twinkle, "Love Hit Me" by The Orchids, "I'm In Love With You" by Billie Davis, "No No No" by Dana Gillespie, "That's Right Baby" by Marianne Faithful, "Where The Good Times Are" by Beverley, "Something Beautiful" by Adrienne Poster, "I Wanna Go Back There Again" by Truly Smith, "I'll Come Running Over" by Lulu, and "I Stand Accused Of Loving You" by The Satin Bells. 24 tracks in all.

✨✧ Small FacesSmall Faces (Decca) 40th Anniversary Edition ... CD
Decca (UK), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's nobody like The Small Faces at their best – as you'll hear from the group's killer 1966 album on Decca! The style here is tight, right, and fully-formed straight from the start – easily one of the best UK 60s hybrids of American influences from R&B, garage rock, and early psych – sorted out perfectly by a quartet of lads who really know what they're doing. And the album's maybe even more focused than the group's later album on Immediate – as here, The Small Faces are all business, and the right kind of gritty – just fantastic stuff that's fresh and exciting even today! Titles include "Shake", "Come On Children", "You Better Believe It", "It's Too Late", "One Night Stand", "Sorry She's Mine", "Sha La La Lee", and "Own Up Time". Bonus tracks that include "Hey Girl", "Grow Your Own", "What's A Matter Baby", and "I've Got Mine" – a total of 23 tracks in all! CD

Marianne FaithfullNorth Country Maid/Love In A Mist (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of incredible early albums from Marianne Faithfull – back to back in a single set – with six bonus tracks too! First up is North Country Maid – a set in which Marianne Faithfull takes on the world of folk music – but with results that are completely different than most of her contemporaries! The tunes are traditional – mixed with contemporary numbers by Tom Paxton, Ewan McColl, Bert Jansch, and Donovan – and the arrangements by Mick Taylor and Jon Mark, who also wrote some of the tracks, have a strong mix of acoustic guitar and strings – but in ways that are very different than other pop folk recordings of the period, especially those from the US – done with lots of darkness at the bottom, in a way that almost recalls the style Nick Drake was going for at the start! This approach is different than on some of Marianne Faithfull's other 60s records, and the record may well be one of the best she ever recorded – filled with great tunes that include "North Country Maid", "Lullaby", "Wild Mountain Thyme", "Green Are Your Eyes", "The Last Thing On My Mind", "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", and "She Moved Thru The Fair". Love In A Mist is a seminal early album from Marianne Faithfull – and one that really shows the unique contributions she made to late 60s music in the UK! Faithfull was a key link between the older 60s British female singers – like Petula Clark, Cilla Black, and Sandy Shaw – and some of the hipper 70s songstresses to come – and that link was never more apparent than on this album, a sweet batch of 60s pop covers that are mostly familiar – but all done by Marianne in her unique vocal style, with plenty of dark, blue overtones that really transform the songs! Backings are by Mike Leander, who makes the tunes groove with a mixture of pop, rock, and folksy touches – and titles include "Our Love Has Gone", "Don't Make Promises You Can't Keep", "This Little Bird", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Counting", "Coquillage", and "Reason To Believe". Plus, the CD features 6 bonus tracks – "Mary Ann", "Come My Way", "Hang On To A Dream", "Monday Monday", "Rosie Rosie", and "The Most Of What Is Least". CD

Ken LauberKen Lauber ... CD
Decca/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
Ken Lauber's the kind of hip, overlooked songwriter who emerged in the generation after folks like Tim Hardin, John Hartford, and Jimmy Webb – able to effortlessly write songs that often tell a little tale of life in the darker stretches of society – but with this slightly redemptive vibe that makes them a lot more powerful than some of the hobo or redneck rock of the time! Like Hardin and Hartford especially, Lauber's got this way of making you think he's actually been through the trenches, yet can still find the special sorts of joy that keep life moving forward – set to well-penned arrangements here that bring in just the right currents of country without ever sounding too cliched. Much hipper than the usual country rock album of the time – with titles that include "The South Was My Home", "Children Of Morning", "Fire Burned Brightly", "My Hands Are Tied", "I've Been A Fool", and "You're Not The Only One Unloved".

Unit 4 + 2Concrete & Clay – The Complete Recordings ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
The complete recordings of Concrete & Clay – a British group of the 60s, but one that had a slightly different sound than some of their contemporaries! The initial years of the sextet has the group harmonizing in these warm ways that are a bit like some of the folk-revival groups in the American scene of the early 60s – especially given the way the voices take center stage above some often-light instrumentation. Yet as the group move on, they also pick up a bit more beat group elements – a bigger beat at the bottom, and more bite in their instrumentation – which is when they really seem to take off, and find a very special place to craft their amazing vocals! The approach is almost a combination of Sunshine Pop and Brit Invasion modes – served up here on a 43 track set that features all of the group's recordings from 1964 through 1969. Titles include "Concrete & Clay", "500 Miles", "Rainy Day", "Baby Never Say Goodbye", "I've Seen The Light", "I Was Playing Games", "So You Want To Be A Blues Player", "3.30", "Face In My Head", "Wild Is The Wind", "Woman From Liberia", "Sorrow & Pain", "Hark", and "I Won't Let You Down".

WhoLive at Leeds ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time! Although offered during the Who's Tommy-era expansion into broader themes and more complicated instrumentation, the album's a real return to basics – and features a guitar-heavy version of the group performing a number of older rock n roll classics like "Summertime Blues", "Shakin All Over", and "Young Man Blues" – plus really extended jamming takes on their own "My Generation" and "Magic Bus", and a searing 2 minute take on "Substitute" that's probably everything you ever need to know about The Jam!

✨✧ WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Trifold ... $14.99
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It".

WhoWho Sell Out ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An incredible album – and one of the most revolutionary rock albums of the late 60s! The Who recorded this one as a tribute to mainstream radio at the time – linking together some solid stand alone tunes with shorter, wittier tracks that were recorded as commercials for products that included baked beans, acne cream, and deodorant – as well as cool announcer bits too! The end result is one of the most sonically complex records issued by a mainstream rock act of the time – sort of like The Who said "yeah, everyone's trying to copy Sgt Peppers with big arrangements, but we'll take this concept album thing in a whole new direction!" Brilliant all the way through, and with tracks that include "Armenia City In The Sky", "Heinz Baked Beans", "Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand", "I Can See For Miles", "I Can't Reach You", "Rale", "Sunrise", and "Silas Stingy".

Hunter MuskettEvery Time You Move (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Lilith (Italy), 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A folksy trio, but one with a very sophisticated sound – thanks to some added arrangements from Richard Hewson – who gives the record a much fuller feel than you might guess from the acoustic image on the cover! Hunter Muskett's a UK trio featuring Chris George, Terry Hiscock, and Doug Morter – all on vocals and acoustic guitar – sometimes singing solo, sometimes in a warmly harmonic mode that really sounds great with the fuller backings. And the backings are subtle enough, just a bit here and there – in the way that Nick Drake's albums were augmented at points, but not all the way through – a wonderful balance that never softens the sound at all. Titles include "Every Time You Move", "Hey Little Girl", "Castle", "I Have A House", "Inside Mine", "The Wait", "Cardboard Man", "Davy Lowston", "Snow", and "Storm On The Shore".

✨✧ WhoMagic Bus/My Generation ... LP
Decca/MCA, 1965/1968. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A Who double-header! On Magic Bus, The Who may look like they're tripping things out a bit – clearly a nod to the Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles – but the groove here is tight, right, and pretty darn mod all the way through – very much in the spirit of the group's earlier albums on Decca! The tracks are all short, and still feature strong influences from soul and R&B – but they also show a great talent for sneaking in spookier bits or more complicated parts too – odd musical elements that might have their roots in older R&B, but which here are turned towards a more mature expression of the group's earlier idiom – really pointing the way towards some of their more ambitious projects in coming years! Titles include "Magic Bus", "Doctor Doctor", "Someone's Coming", "Our Love Was Is", "Call Me Lightning", "Pictures Of Lily", "Bucket T", "Run Run Run", and "Disguises". My Generation is the first full-length set from The Who – a blistering batch of rough-edged tunes that run the gamut from bluesy soul to sweeter pop to guitar-driven grinders that show an incredible amount of power – even at this early point! The album's somewhat all over the map, but in a good way – in that it already displays the rich talent the group had for many styles of music – that hard-to-peg quality that made The Who so undeniably Who-like over the years. Titles include the classics "The Kids Are Alright" and "My Generation" – plus "Instant Party", "A Legal Matter", "Out In The Street", "The Good's Gone", "La La La Lies", and "It's Not True".

Wonderfully tripped-out girl group work from the end of the 60s – almost a psyche-era take on the sound of female pop trios from a few years before! Cake definitely have their roots in a Brill Building, Phil Spector-influenced world – but their overall presentation here is much more open to hipper influences and late 60s modes – styles that take an otherwise straighter girl pop sound, and mix it up with odd production, unusual lyrics, and some wonderfully complex instrumentation – all of which almost makes the group sound like some sort of feminist commentary on girl group music!

Zombies (solo material too)Into The Afterlife ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A true treasure trove for any fan of the Zombies, Rod Argent, or Colin Blunstone – magical material recorded in the immediate post-Zombies years – offered up here with a few rare late Zombies tracks as well! The genius of Odessey & Oracle still hangs heavy here on most of the tracks – as does the earliest solo work of Colin Blunstone – an airy mix of pop harmonies, spacey instrumentation, and baroquely psychedelic touches – all strung together lightly, but slowly pulling in the different directions the members were taking after the breakup of the original group. Perhaps the greatest bits here are Colin Blunstone tracks recorded under the name of Neil MacArthur for Decca – titles that predate his brilliant Year One album, but which have a very similar feel. Neil MacArthur tracks include "Hung Upside Down", "Without Her", "Twelve Twenty Nine", "World Of Glass", "Never My Love", "It's Not Easy", "Don't Try To Explain", and "She's Not There". Also great are some Rod Argent & Chris White tracks – again pre-Argent material, but with a strong Zombies link in their sound – on tracks that include "It Never Fails To Please Me", "I Could Spend The Day", "She Loves The Way They Love Her", "Telescope", "To Julia", and "Unhappy Girl". CD also features some great "orchestral mix" titles by The Zombies – "If It Don't Work Out" and "Walking In The Sun" – both of which sound beautiful with added strings! CD

✨✧ Vashti BunyanSome Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles & Demos 1964 to 1967 ... LP
DiCristina, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful early work from British singer Vashti Bunyan – an important figure in the acid folk scene at the end of the 60s, heard here on some really wonderful work from a few years before! Some of the tracks have a really trippy style, and others are a bit more like conventional Brit girl pop of the time – but given a very weird twist overall, with a sound that's quite hard to describe! Vashti's vocals have these really dark qualities overall – and even when the backings are fuller (which often they are not), there's a sad, earthy feel to her singing. But equally great is her guitar work – heard with more prominence on most of the album's previously-unissued tracks from mid 60s tapes. Bunyan plays with these warm harmonics that kind of nestle and bristle underneath her vocals – pushing the tunes up with a sense of brightness in contrast to the voice – almost in a Nick Drake sort of way (and trust us, we don't throw around comparisons to his music easily!) The package is a wonderful look at these almost-lost years of Vashti's career – and it features both sides of her Decca and Columbia singles, an unreleased Immediate single, and a lot more tracks pulled from rare tapes from 1964, 1966, and 1967! Set features 25 tracks that include "Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind", "Train Song", "Love Song", "Winter Is Blue", "Leave Me", "How Do I Know", "Go Before Dawn", "Girl's Song In Winter", "Don't Believe", "17 Pink Sugar Elephants", "Someday", and "I Know".

Monster Melodies (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
Great early work from Vangelis – recorded years before his new age drippy stretch, at a time when he was fresh off work in the amazing Aphrodite's Child, where he really learned to make some amazing sounds on his keyboards! There's a nicely spacey vibe to the set, and some really dark currents too – as Vangelis plays lots of Fender Rhodes, plus a bit of percussion and mellotron – often in offbeat ways, and with contributions from Laurent De Gasperis on flute, percussion, and mandolin. Although a soundtrack, the music is plenty visual on its own away from the film – and titles include "Giudecca", "Venezia", "Ruga Do Pozlic", "Marina", "La Contessina", and "Ma Dove Sei". (Soundtracks, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
