Dream SyndicateDays Of Wine & Roses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The essential first album from Dream Syndicate – one of the great rock albums of it's time and the very foundation for many other great ones to follow! Moody and real, this is ranscendent stuff that ignored the rock and pop trends of the early 80s, production wise, and carried stronger influences from the likes of the Velvet Underground and Big Star – and ultimately ended up making a huge impact on the best indie rock to follow in their wake. That's a bit ironic, given that Dream Syndicate recorded for Warner, but speaks volumes for their independent spirit! Titles include "Tell Me When It's Over", "Definitely Clean", "That's What You Always Say", "Wen You Smile", "Until Lately", "The Days Of Wine And Roses" and more. This excellent CD version from Omnivore includes some choice rarities for bonus material – including some never before heard recordings, rehearsal tapes, and even a mesmerizing 10 minute jam that's more akin to 70s art rock than we'd ever heard from the group. Amazing! 15 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Jimmy CampbellJimmy Campbell's Album ... CD
Philips/Esoteric (UK), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully sensitive work from Jimmy Campbell – a record with a lot more depth than you might guess from the gimmicky image on the cover! Campbell returns here to spare, fragile territory throughout – working with instrumentation that's mostly just acoustic guitar and a bit of rhythm, plus occasional piano and organ – all in a style that reminds us of Biff Rose at some of his best late 60s moments, which is a pretty good comparison – considering Jimmy's uniquely personal style of singing, and his personally poetic choice of lyrical topics! The album's a real overlooked gem – the kind of singer-songwriter treasure that's arguably more suited to a hip audience these days than it might have been when first released back in the early 70s. Titles include "April Morning", "Paris You're In Paris", "Salvation Army Citadel", "By The Light Of A Lamp", "Maudie", "Baby Walk Out With Your Darling Man", "It Never Rains But It Pours", and "When You're Coming Home".

✨✧ Dick Dale & His Del-TonesSurfer's Choice (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Deltone/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first LP from Dick Dale And His Del-Tones – about as influential of a genre guitar gem as you could ask for – the great Surfer's Choice from 1962! Hilariously, a question on the top of the back cover reads, "Why Is Dick Dale The Surfer's Choice?", and although we cannot speak for actual surfers, surf guitar fans need not be asked. Raw, rumbling, exciting surf rockers from the king – much of it recorded at Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa Beach, where Dale's legend was made. Includes "Surf Beat", "Misirlou Twist", "Peppermint Man", "Surfing Drums", "Shake N Stomp", "Let's Go Trippin" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Cocteau TwinsPink Opaque (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
4AD, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A well-remembered set from The Cocteau Twins' sublime 80s run on the 4AD label – a set that was one of the duo's first American titles, culled together from some of their early singles and import EP releases! The song choices are wonderful – some of the most focused, expressive cuts from the first few Cocteau years – magical moments that have the wordless vocals of Liz Frazier carving out these really beautiful melodies – while lush keyboards and splashy rhythms fill in the background with that unique 4AD style of production. There's still never been anything like the group at this point over all the years that have past – and the album's filled with gems that include "Wax & Wane", "Pearly Dewdrop Drops", "From The Flagstones", "Lorelei", "Aikea Guinea", "Pepper Tree", and "Musette & Drums".
