VariousLove Hit Me – Decca Beat Girls 1963 to 1970 (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $23.99
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 – The Decca Years (5CD deluxe box set) ... CD
Decca, Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A stunning package that brings together all the material The Small Faces recorded for Decca Records in the mid 60s – plus loads and loads of bonus tracks too – a whopping 91 selections in all! There's nobody like The Small Faces at their best – and throughout the material, the style is tight, right, and fully-formed – 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 this Decca material is maybe even more focused than the group's later, better-circulated work 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! Contents include: CD1 Greatest Hits, with 21 titles that include "Patterns", "Just Passing", "It's Too Late", "Grow Your Own", "Hey Girl", "What's A Matter Baby", "Come On Children", "E Too D", "One Night Stand", and more; CD2 the Small Faces album; CD3 the From The Beginning album; CD4 Rarities & Outtakes, with 23 obscure versions and alternate takes; CD5 BBC Sessions, with 21 tracks recorded for BBC radio, including a few short interview snippets. Includes previously-unissued material, four band postcards, new remastering, and a 72 page book with new notes! CD

Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
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.

EndFrom Beginning To End (4CD set) ... CD
Decca/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $22.99
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".

Hunter MuskettEvery Time You Move (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Lilith (Italy), 1970. Near Mint- (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".

Ronnie JonesSatisfy My Soul – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Great work from soul singer Ronnie Jones – an artist who was born in the US, but cut all of this work in the swinging London scene of the 60s – where he was obviously a very big addition to the mod scene! Ronnie's got a voice that's capable of a great range when needed, but which can also stick to a tightly soulful groove too – a match of modes that has him swinging between Ray Charles moments some times, and early Gene McDaniels at others – but all with backing by the sort of combo featured on the cover, which means that there's a bit of a British bluesy current to the music as well. The whole thing's wonderful – a stunning discovery of a singer who should have had an equally big impact on these shores, and who was undeniably a precursor to soulful Brit acts to come. Titles include "Satisfy My Soul", "My Daily Souvenir", "I Need Your Loving", "My Love", "Let's Pin A Rose On You", "It's All Over", "Anyone Who Knows What Love Is", "You're Looking Good", and "Mama Come On Home".

Ken LauberKen Lauber ... CD
Decca/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $21.99
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".

✨✧ 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. 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".

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ WhoWho Sings My Generation ... LP
Decca, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Marianne FaithfullNorth Country Maid/Love In A Mist (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Moody BluesMagnificent Moodies (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/Esoteric (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... 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". 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!

✨✧ Small FacesFrom The Beginning (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early brilliance from The Small Faces – a set that perfectly sums up all the aspects that set them apart from their peers on the British scene of the 60s! Sure, there's the requisite mod touches in the music's influence from American R&B and garage – but there's also a winningly unique vibe in the way the whole thing comes together – almost a touch of nascent psych, yet used in very economical ways – to perfectly fuel Steve Marriott's lead vocals, and send them soaring where few others might dare to go at the time! There's a cohesion and focus of vision that grabs us right from the start – and holds strongly, even when the group are handling other folks' songs too. Titles include "Runaway", "My Mind's Eye", "That Man", "Hey Girl", "All Or Nothing", "Plum Nellie", "You Really Got A Hold On Me", and "My Way Of Giving". LP, Vinyl record album

Vashti BunyanSome Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles & Demos 1964 to 1967 ... LP
DiCristina, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
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".

About Time includes the group's Decca singles, rare radio sessions, and previously unreleased records – some with a slight bluesy guitar tinge, but nearly all of them heavy and driving – way ahead of their time! Tracks include "Any More Than I Do", "Feel Like Flying", "Created by Clive", "Try It", "Go Your Way", "Strange House", "Freedom For You", "Hi Ho Silver Lining", "Magic In The Air (aka Watch With Mother)", and "We Don't Know".

✨✧ Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Wallace CollectionWallace Collection ... CD
Parlophone/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool album from The Wallace Collection – a Belgian group who do a wonderful job of mixing together a whole host of different elements, but never in ways that are too proggy or overindulgent at all! These guys keep most songs short – even when they're borrowing a bit of strings – and work in kind of a post-beat mode that's not afraid of catchy hooks, but not afraid to change things up a bit too – which can make some of the most charming tunes here sound nicely weird and offbeat – like some of the coolest Brit groups on Decca at the time. Lots of deeper vibes lurk way back there in the tunes – and sometimes right at the start – but there's a sense of focus to the album that we also really like too. Titles include "Love", "We Are Machines", "Serenade", "We Gotta Do Something New", "Dear Beloved Secretary", "Tic Toc", "Where", "See The Man", and "Bruxelles". CD

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.
