MascotsEllpee (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
RPM/Decca (UK), 1966. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
Rare mid 60 beat from Sweden by The Mascots! The group hits on all the benchmark elements of the best raw rock of the beat era – charismatic lead and melodic backing vocals, raw rhythms and guitars – but this group goes one step deeper with some really strong songs! They're tuneful and memorable, it's a real wonder that they didn't break out internationally in a big way. Includes "The Winner", "This Proud Crowd", "I Close Your Eyes", "That's You", "I Want To Live", "This Time Girl", "No Body Crying", "Things Are Turning Out", "I Don't Like You", "A Different Mind" and more. This great 2CD version from RPM includes a bonus disc of non-album singles from 1966 to 1969 – including "Words Enough To Tell You", "Aaah, I Love You", "Meet Me", "If I Had A Ship", "Black And White", "Tell Me Lady", "A Life Like That" and many more. 22 tracks I all.

Moody BluesMagnificent Moodies (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Decca/Esoteric (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
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 ... CD CD format
Decca (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
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.

T2It'll All Work Out In Boomland ... LP LP format
Decca/Acme Gramophone (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $21.99
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

WhoLive at Leeds ... LP LP format
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(70s non-gatefold pressing. Cover has light wear.)

WhoMeaty Beaty Big & Bouncy ... LP LP format
Decca, 1971. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! 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. Titles include "Boris The Spider", "Happy Jack", "Pictures Of Lily", "My Generation", "The Seeker", "I Can't Explain", "The Kids Are Alright", "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere", "A Legal Matter", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy", and "Pinball Wizard".

New WhoTommy ... LP LP format
Decca, 1970. Very Good- 2LP Trifold ... $6.99
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".

One of the greatest records ever by one of the greatest bands ever! The tracks of Who's Next are the stuff of legend – classics like "Baba O'Riley", "Bargain", "Going Mobile", "Behind Blue Eyes", and "Won't Get Fooled Again", tracks that show the group growing tremendously beyond their roots as mod rockers.

New Thin LizzyVagabonds Of The Western World (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Decca/Future Days, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Maybe the first true moment of greatness from Thin Lizzy – a record that really has them coming into their own, with a sharpness that really points the way at their later classics – and that unique approach that has Phil Lynott standing out as one of the most unique singers of his generation! There's still a bit of a bluesy undercurrent at the start, but as the album comes together some really tremendous songs emerge – tuneful yet rocking, and with a surprising undercurrent of soul as well. Titles include the classic "The Rocker", the great "Mama Nature Said", and "The Hero And The Madman", "Vagabond Of The Western World", and "A Song For While I'm Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Deram/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Early February, 2015 (delayed)
The really cool, totally underrated first album from the mighty Thin Lizzy on Decca – a self-titled effort from a few years earlier in the 70s than the badass, harder rocking style to come – and with some nicely tripped out folk psych influences! It's interesting to listen this first record with their later work in mind, because you can sense the tide coming for the tighter, punchier sound of later records – but this early on, they're rolling with an airier late 60s-learned vibe, too! Titles include "Honesty Is No Excuse", "Ray-Gun", "Look What The Wind Blew In", "Clifton Garage Hotel", "Saga Of The Ageing Orphan", "Remembering (Part 1)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(High quality Light In The Attic edition on 180 gram vinyl. Includes a tip-on sleeve with the art of the original Decca & London album covers, plus a 18" X 24" poster.)

New Paper BubbleScenery ... CD CD format
Deram/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Glorious post psychedelia from Paper Bubble – with soaring harmonies and arrangements that float nearly has high – with an insistent pace thanks to some tight drums and overall tunefulness! It's in the vein of the more orchestrated psyche pop gems, ala the Hollies – and originally issued on Decca. Very sweet stuff! Tracks include "Fillin A Gap", "Being Human Being", "She", "I'm Laughing", "Energy", "MM Of LA", "Mother Mother Mother", "Tomorrow Never Come Likes A Silver Spoon". CD
