VariousLove Hit Me – Decca Beat Girls 1963 to 1970 (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

Vincent BellPop Goes The Electric Sitar ... LP
Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The great studio guitarist Vincent Bell lays down a set of groovy poppy sitar cuts, with a sound that's part Indian pop, part easy groove – and all wild 60s! The album features the Coral Electric Sitar, plus some classic Indian Sitar – and includes tracks like "More", "Quiet Village", and "Eleanor Rigby", played with a large groovy group, with sitar solos out front.

CakeCake ... LP
Decca, 1967. Very Good ... $29.99
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!

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. Near Mint- (reissue)... $6.99
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".

✨✧ WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Trifold ... $11.99
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".

KhanSpace Shanty ... LP
Decca, 1972. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A British jazz rock masterpiece – and one of the first albums to feature guitar work by a young Steve Hillage! Khan marks a reunion between Hillage and Dave Stewart – after the former had been away at University for a few years, and the latter had been jamming on keyboards with the seminal group Egg. In a way, Khan's sound is kind of a redirection of the heavy cosmic jamming of Egg – one that strips down the sound nicely, pushes things along with a lot more guitar, and gives the tracks a nice grounding in vocals from Hillage and bassist Nick Greenwood. The guitar work alone is a strong part of the set – but Stewart's keyboards are equally enticing, and include organ, piano, and "skyceleste"! Titles include "Space Shanty", "Hollow Stone", "Stargazers", "Driving To Amsterdam", and "Stranded". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Moody BluesMagnificent Moodies ... LP
Decca (UK), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Peppermint RainbowWill You Be Staying After Sunday ... LP
Decca, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Decca (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily 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

Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled from the group's earliest years, and awash in mod rhythms, tight guitars, and lyrics that are quite edgey – even in the format of a two-minute pop tune.

✨✧ EndFrom Beginning To End (4CD set) ... CD
Decca/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed collection of work from The End – an ultra-hip British group who issued one famous album for Decca, with production from Bill Wyman, and a sound that's gone onto become the stuff of legend over the years – finally heard here in the full scope of all the other material they recorded back in the late 60s! The package features that legendary record – Introspection – but it also includes a huge amount of other tracks from the time – not just demos, but other studio recordings, rare singles, and a lot more – much of which only ever saw the light of day in later years, on brief vinyl-only issues in the 90s – which makes most of the music here a CD debut for the group! The core sound has a compressed vibe that's a perfect blend of budding psychedelia with tighter beat group energy – with a quality that's almost funky at times, and which definitely places The End strongly in freakbeat territory on many of these tracks. There's great use of organ, lots of fuzzy guitar, and plenty of super-heavy drums that add a groove while underscoring the sinister sound of the group's vocals too. The box features 61 tracks in all, and comes with a heavy booklet of notes – and titles include "It Won't Be Long", "I Can't Get Any Joy", "Mistress Bean", "Tears Will Be The Only Answer", "Cardboard Watch", "What Does It Feel Like", "She Said Yeah", "Loving Sacred Loving", "We've Got It Made", "Yo Yo", "For Eleanor", "My Friend", "Smartypants", "Mirror", "Bypass The Bypass", "Little Annie", "Morning Dew", and "The Fly".

Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Be! (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A teeny tiny little label from late 50s Georgia – but one that cut some wonderful music in its few short years on the planet! Peach Records issued some sides to bigger labels like Decca or Starday – but at their core, they had a great roster of local talent that included both rockabilly acts and hillbilly boppers – all recorded with a raw, lean sound that still holds up wonderfully over the years! Lots of this work is in that special space between early rock and country – with some of the twang of the latter, but lots of the sneer of the former – and plenty of grit in the grooves to make these sides live again after the passage of decades. The set features notes on the label and the artists, and label scans of most of the rare singles too – and the package features 32 titles that include "Wahoo" by Arnold Bennett, "Red Light" by The Dandies, "The World Belongs To Me" by Olen Little, "The Cats Were Jumpin" by John Worthan, "Rockin The Guitar" by Jay Brown & The Jets, "China Doll" by Dappa Smith, "I'm In A Daze" by Lewis Pruitt & The True Lads, and "You've Always Got A Frown" by Ramblin Red Bailey.

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".
