Alan PriceTwice The Price – The Decca Recordings (Price To Pay/Price On His Head/singles) (3CD set) ... CD
Decca/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Alan Price – a singer who first got his start in The Animals, but quickly burst forth as a solo act on his own – working in an equally great mix of jazz, blues, and soul! Price is a hell of a talent – and one that was never as strongly recognized on our shores – and like his contemporary Georgie Fame, he also is a crack pianist and organ player – both instruments he uses strongly to accompany the gritty grooves on this set. And in fact, if you like Georgie Fame's 60s recordings, you'll find a lot here to love too – no surprise that the two artists later teamed up together – and the package features both of Alan's albums for Decca, plus a whopping 19 more singles that may well represent the best of the bunch – all tracks that didn't appear on the albums. 44 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Story", "Tappy Tortoise", "Never Be Sick On A Sunday", "Any Day Now", "Tickle Me", "Who Cares", "The Time Has Come", "The Trimdon Grange Explosion", "Come & Dance With Me", "So Long Dad", "Don't Do That Again", "The House That Jack Built", "Goin Down Slow", and "Move On Drifter".

Mike LeanderTime For Young Love ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the few American releases by Mike Leander – the groovy 60s British arranger who skirted equal worlds of rock and easy! Leander's got a hip approach that's got plenty of late 60s psyche touches bubbling out underneath more straightforward arrangements – working some easy magic on tunes that include "The Fool On The Hill", "Those Were The Days", "Hey Jude", "Grazin In The Grass", "Aquarius", and "Time Is Tight".

Moody BluesMagnificent Moodies (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Esoteric (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
An incredible first album from The Moody Blues – way way different than any of their later high-concept work, and much more in the best soul and R&B-drenched material of the UK mod scene of the time! A number of cuts here are remakes of American soul tracks – including their stellar take on "Go Now" – and like some of the Moodies' best contemporaries, like Manfred Mann, the group really transform the material – and don't just offer up blue-eyed takes on the tunes. Instead, there's a free sense of play with the material – leanings that are definitely rockish on the solos, even though the overall vibe is quite soulful – and done with this tightly compressed style that's perfect for the vocals of the young Denny Laine – with a vibe that's further expanded by some nice use of echo in the production. Surprisingly wonderful – and very different than "Knights In White Satin" – with titles that include "Go Now", "I'll Go Crazy", "True Story", "Can't Nobody Love You", "I've Got A Dream", and "Let Me Go". A killer package – a box with poster, cards, and a nice book – plus the full original albums, then loads more bonus tracks on CD1 – including singles "Boulevard De Madeline", "Steal Your Heart Away", "Lose Your Money", "People Gotta Go", "Life's Not Life", "He Can Win", "Everyday", and "Time Is On My Side". Then, CD2 features a huge amount of extra tracks – previously unreleased sessions, plus Saturday Club sessions and 1966 Denny Cordell sessions – and even a radio commercial for Coke! 43 bonus tracks – 29 previously unreleased!

✨✧ Peppermint RainbowWill You Be Staying After Sunday ... LP
Decca, 1969. Very Good ... $2.99
A wonderful bit of sunshine pop from the very obscure Peppermint Rainbow – a male/female harmony group with a sound that was a lot like the Mamas & Papas – blending folk rock and sweet pop into a really sunny groove! The album's worth it alone for the massive title track – "Will You Be Staying After Sunday", a tune that's got a sad undercurrent that seems to single-handedly dismantle all of the sexual freedom offered by the late 60s with a one sentence confession of the emotionality that was also attached. Other tracks are also nice – and include "Don't Wake Me Up In The Morning Michael", "Run Like The Devil", "I Found Out I Was A Woman", and "Walking In Different Circles" – most of which were written by arranger/producer Paul Leka.

WhoMagic Bus/My Generation ... LP
Decca/MCA, 1965/1968. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
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".

WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $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".

Wishbone AshArgus ... LP
Decca, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
The early 70s mix of medieval themes and more 70s rooted jams – Argus by Wishbone Ash! If you haven't heard this one, and you're expecting battle axes, swords and early metal bombast. . .well, there's some of that. But Wishbone Ash were restless cats, and there's longwinded acoustic passages and all kinds of early 70s rock going on here! Dig that Hipgnosis cover art, too. Titles include "Time Was", "Sometime World", "Warrior", "Throw Down The Sword", "Blowin Free" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ WhoWho Sell Out ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Cuff LinksTracy (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Poker (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful bit of late 60s pop – featuring a harmony group who can really sing – a group who really hit big with the famous cover tune of the set, but who really sound wonderful throughout! The album was masterminded by the team of Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss – who wrote most of the tunes, and also arranged and produced – and the whole thing's got a no-filler feel that's really great, with loads of original tunes that really pull out the best of the group's great vocal sound. There's a definite Sunshine Pop quality to the record, but the vocals also hearken back to an even better-crafted era of pop – and the whole thing kicks off with the hit single "Tracy", then rolls into gems like "Where Did You Go", "All The Young Women", "When Julie Comes Around", "Lay A Little Love On Me", and "Early In The Morning". CD also features 6 bonus tracks that include "Run Sally Run", "Wake Up Judy", "The Kiss", "Thank You Pretty Baby", and "Robin's World". CD

Decca, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A nice batch of late 60s psychedelic from The End – a record with that mixes the catchy idiosyncrasies of post-Sgt. Pepper Lennon/McCartney with the headier elements of groups like The Creation and Barrett-era Pink Floyd! The album was championed and produced by the Stones' Bill Wyman and engineered by rock heavyweight Glyn Johns – but this very deserving record didn't get its due at the time – perhaps because Decca didn't quite know how to sell such a record. Tracks include "Dreamworld", "Under The Rainbow", "Shades Of Orange", "Introspection (Pt. 1)", "Don't Take Me", "Loving, Sacred Loving", "She Said Yeah" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ T2It'll All Work Out In Boomland ... LP
Decca/Acme Gramophone (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The one and only album from T2 – an incredible British group with a sound that should have been huge! Like some of the best of their generation, T2 is a trio – featuring some heavy guitars from Keith Cross, vocals by Peter Dunton, and rumbling bass from Bernard Jinks – all brought together with a sound that's sharply focused in its vision, yet freely expressive in execution. There's a great mix here between jamming passages and softer sensitivity – never as forced as on some of the early King Crimson records, but with a similar sort of sharpness and range that should have gotten this one to a much wider audience. Titles include the side-long "Morning", plus "In Circles", "JLT", and "No More White Horses". LP, Vinyl record album

Los BravosBlack Is Black – The Anthology 1966 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
The biggest collection of work we've ever seen from Los Bravos – a group who broke big around the world with the famous title hit, but who also had a heck of a lot more to offer, too! Los Bravos hail from Spain, but they quickly were picked up and produced by the British arm of Decca – which gives their music a cool mix of modes – part of the punch of 60s Britpop, but also dosed with maybe a bit more sense of drama inherited from their Spanish, roots – with a blend that's quite unique, especially as the set moves on! There's a whopping 60 tracks in all – way more than we'd ever heard by Los Bravos – and most lyrics are in English, with an increasingly groovy vibe as the set moves on – almost the same kind of west coast world as The Monkees in their best Boyce & Hart mode, but with some bouncy Brill Building currents too. The booklet is overflowing with notes on the group – and titles include "Black Is Black", "Show Me", "I've Been Hearing Things", "Deeper Roots", "She's My Girl", "Dime Donde Estoy", "If I Were A River", "Live Girl", "Individuality", "Dirty Street", "Two People In Me", "Como Superman", "Make It Last", "Baby Believe Me", "I Don't Care", "Recopilacion", "Trapped", "I Want A Name", "She Believes In Me", "Come When I Call", and "You'll Never Get The Chance Again".

Please1968/1969 ... CD
Lion, Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
Unreleased work from this dark-edged group in the UK psychedelic scene of the late 60s – a combo with ties to bigger-name projects like T2, Gun, Bulldog Breed, and Neon Pearl – but one who sound equally great here on these very rare tracks! The music is from demos and acetates put together by the group at a time when most had ties to Decca Records – and the sounds here are at that pinnacle of tight-but-trippy work that the label did so well at the time – tunes that mostly are in the 3 minute range, but somehow manage to pack a heck of a lot in that space – not just in terms of instrumentation and vocals, but new musical ideas too! And these aren't scratchy demo recordings, either – as the production is pretty great, and really makes the tunes pop – a great assortment of gems that include "Paper Anna", "Seaweed", "Break The Spell", "We Aim To Please", "Breakthrough", "The Story", "Folder Man", "Watching", and "You're Still Waiting".
