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.

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

Hunter MuskettEvery Time You Move (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Lilith (Italy), 1970. Sealed (reissue)... $9.99
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".

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".

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".

✨✧ WhoWho Sings My Generation ... LP
Decca, 1965. Very Good ... $39.99
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".

✨✧ WhoLive at Leeds ... LP
Decca, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Used 2LP Trifold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... $37.99
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". (Vocalists, Rock) CD

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

✨✧ VariousSpirit Of Joy – Tales From The Polydor Underground 1967 to 1974 (3CD box set) ... CD
Polydor (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 3CDs ... Out Of Stock
Cool work from the early days of Polydor Records – material from the time when the label was one of the leading lights in progressive rock on the UK scene! Like others in the "label" series from Universal UK – including their Decca, Island, and Vertigo boxes – the set list here goes way beyond the sum of its parts – a mix of mainstream acts and underground artists, all brought into play wonderfully with each other, with just the right sort of energy to recapture the excitement the music first sparked many decades back! Some artists are best known to Americans from their US issues on other labels – but the original recordings were all originally on Polydor UK, re-stated as such in a hip 3CD box with a 48 page booklet of notes. Artists include The Who, Audience, The Creation, Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Taste, Cream, Van Der Graaf Generator, Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger, Focus, Barclay James Harvest, Medicine Head, The Web, Faust, Jack Bruce, Pink Fairies, John McLaughlin, Tangerine Dream, Pete Townshend, and Supersister.

✨✧ VangelisAmore (180 gram clear yellow vinyl pressing – with poster) ... LP
Monster Melodies (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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
(Limited pressing – heavy yellow vinyl, with poster and postcard too!)
