Dick Dale & His Del-TonesSurfer's Choice (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Deltone/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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

Dream SyndicateDays Of Wine & Roses (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... $10.99 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

VariousQueer Noises – From The Closet To The Charts 1961 to 1978 ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
We'll be the first to admit that we're never that comfortable with efforts to out gay and bi performers in pop music – especially if such outing is never the choice of the performers themselves – but this package is a fair bit better than most, thanks to some careful handling by compiler Jon Savage! As with some of his other efforts, Savage does a great job of drawing lines between unlikely sources – pulling together bits of 60s pop that are less explicit about their content and desires, and using them to start a path that leads into more openly expressive work from the glam, punk, and disco years of the 70s. As with other Trikont packages, the set features full notes on the music and each track – both in German and English – and the CD boasts a wonderfully eclectic batch of material that includes "Eros" by Rod McKuen, "At The Black Cat" by Jose, "See My Friend" by The Kinks, "Kay Why" by The Brothers Butch, "Come Here Often" by The Tornados, "Coochy Coo" by Polly Perkins, "Closet Queen" by Harrison Kennedy, "Astral Cowboy" by Curt Boettcher, "I Was Born This Way" by Valentino, "Ain't Nobody Straight In LA" by The Miracles, "53rd & 3rd" by The Ramones, "Trouble At The Cup" by Black Randy & The Metro Squad, "The Man I Love" by Zebedy, and "These Boots" by Teddy & Darrel. 24 tracks in all.
