MascotsEllpee (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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.

Peppermint RainbowWill You Be Staying After Sunday ... CD
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
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

Thin LizzyVagabonds Of The Western World (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Future Days, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (pic cover)... $19.99 27.99
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

WhoLive at Leeds ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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!

WhoMy Generation (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Geffen, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
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".

✨✧ WhoMeaty Beaty Big & Bouncy ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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".

WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Trifold ... Just Sold Out!
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 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Geffen, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... 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".

✨✧ Wishbone AshArgus ... LP
Decca, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Black label MCA pressing in a non-gatefold cover. Cover has light wear.)

Thin LizzyThin Lizzy (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Deram/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 30.98
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 Aging 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.)

ZombiesRIP – The Lost Album (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Varese, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Around April 18, 2015
Great late work from The Zombies – tracks that are a perfect bridge between Odessey & Oracle and the early records from Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent! The cuts here include some late singles issued as part of the Time Of The Zombies album in the US, and other Decca work from the time that never saw the light of day for years – brought together with a very unified feel that shows not only the increasing sense of majesty in Blunstone's vocals, but also some of the grittier touches that Argent was bringing to his instrumentation. Titles include early versions of "Smokey Day", "She Loves The Way They Love Her", and "If It Don't Work Out" – plus "Girl Help Me", "I'll Keep Trying", "Don't Cry For Me", "Imagine The Swan", "Walking In The Sun", and the smoking instrumental "Conversation Off Floral Street". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, 4/19/15.

✨✧ Paper BubbleScenery ... CD
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
