Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (180 gram pressing with poster & prints) ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene! There's so much here that so many other records are missing – razor-sharp instrumentation, a great sense of pacing, and most importantly, a biting wit that always keeps the whole thing from ever lapsing into any sort of over-serious cliches! Yet unlike their LA contemporaries, the group were also never ones to just lay into the jokes – as the political commentary here is especially pointed, and nearly every single song is a blistering attack on late 70s California mores and national obsessions. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Kill The Poor", "Forward To Death", "Let's Lynch The Landlord", "Your Emotions", "Holiday In Cambodia", "California Uber Alles", and "Stealing People's Mail" – plus a killer cover of "Viva Las Vegas". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – super-heavy vinyl!)

BeatlesRevolver ... CD
Apple/EMI, 1966. Used ... $3.99
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". CD

BedheadWhatFunLifeWas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1994. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
The first album from Bedhead – a 1994 record that helped usher in something of a quiet revolution in 90s indie rock – paving the way for lusher, moodier and slower soundscapes, soon be dubbed slowcore! Bedhead is as much a breath of fresh air a couple decades later, delivering a timeless, moody sound that takes some cues from the vibe of the Velvet Underground at their mellowest, and more recent trailblazers like Spaceman 3 – but ultimately deliver their own distinctive, and now oft-imitated sound. Includes "Liferaft", "Haywire", "Bedside Table", "The Unpredictable", "Landlord", "Crushing", "Unfinished", "Powder", "Foaming Love", "To The Ground", "Living Well" and "Wind Down".

BrotherhoodBrotherhood (1968) ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good- ... $4.99
The first album ever from The Brotherhood – an offshoot of Paul Revere & The Raiders, filled with some of that group's greatest early players! The core of the group features Drake Levin on guitar, Phil Volk on bass, and Mike Smith on drums – romping with the kind of raw, party-styled energy they brought to their work with their previous group – but at a level here that's way more heady, and definitely shows a stronger influence from psych! Tunes are still plenty catchy, but have some weird undercurrents too – in a cool Sunshine Pop sort of style – and the range of instrumentation is nicely fresh, and even a bit richer than usual for this sort of record. Titles include "Somebody", "Pastel Blue", "Close The Door", "Seasons", "Love For Free", "Lady Faire", and "Ice Cream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a bit of pen near the top corner.)

ColoursColours ... LP
Dot, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of the best American psych albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, a partially split top seam, and some light staining on the back.)

DeathSpiritual Mental Physical – Original Reel-To-Reel Demo Recordings 1974-1976 ... LP
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven of which were recorded on a two-track reel-to-reel stereo recorder – and it's exciting, pummeling, incendiary stuff! A worthy addition to Death revival campaign that began with Drag City's essential release of their For The Whole World To See album. Get it! Includes "Views", "The Masks", "Change", "World Of Tomorrow", "The Storm Within", "Dannis On The Motor City Drums" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Deep PurpleShades Of Deep Purple ... LP
Tetragrammaton, 1968. Very Good- ... $5.99
The birth of a legend, and easily one of the heaviest records to hit the mainstream in the late 60s! The album's got a sinister quality that you can hear on the first few notes – a low-end, rumbling approach that brings in a lot more fuzzy bass than other groups of the time had ever thought to use – all topped with some of the most wickedly edgey guitar put on record to date, and undercut by drums that are almost verging on funk at times! Basslines set the tone for most of the tunes in the set – creating a bottom-heavy groove that would be copped many times in years to come, but which still sounds tremendously fresh here in the original. Titles include "Mandrake Root", "I'm So Glad", "One More Rainy Day", "Help", "Love Help Me", "And The Address", and "Hey Joe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Silver label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

Die ParteiLa Freiheit Des Geistes ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $10.99
The album's got a classical-styled cover image, but the work is plenty modern within – some great electronic grooves from the best years of the German new wave! Die Partei are a duo we'd rank right up there with Pyrolator and Der Plan – easily as playful as both of those great acts, and graced with a talent for taking the simplest of analogue electric sounds, and really making them sound fresh and groovy! There's no darkness at all in the music – just these cool rhythmic passages that mix beats and keyboards in a way that's very different from US or UK material of the time – never overblown, never too moody – just simple, tuneful, and still wonderful after all these years. Titles include "Ostafrika", "Guten Morgen In Koln", "Rote Schuhe", "Allerheiligen", "Nord Sud Fahrt", "Wo Sind Sie", and "Austauschprogramm". CD

✨✧ Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 2 – Scratch ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small crease on one corner.)

Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

LoveDa Capo ... CD
Elektra, 1967. Used ... $6.99
A stunning second album from Love – a set that's still without the fuller orchestrations and baroque touches of Forever Changes – but which already shows the group moving in that direction! The rough, gritty edge of the group is very firmly intact – but they've already got a really fresh way of putting over a song – by complicating the rhythms a bit, going for unusual tonal colors, and furthering the really imaginative songwriting of Arthur Lee. Side one features some incredibly haunting shorter tunes that point the way towards Forever Changes – including the insanely wonderful "She Comes In Colors", the Latin-tinged "Que Vida", and the cuts "Stephanie Knows Who", "The Castle", and "Seven & Seven Is". Side two is a total freak-out – an 18 minute bluesy guitar jam, very over the top stuff – and quite unusual in length for a rock album in 1966! CD

MonkeesHeadquarters ... LP
Colgems, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the best ever efforts from the Monkees – really the first album where Mickey, Peter, Davy and Mike took creative control from the TV people – and created and album of groovy late 60s pop to rival those of their influences! Headquarters famously features a lot more original material than previous LPs – and it still sounds remarkably fresh! It really doesn't feature any of their huge hits, so it stands up really well without the crutch of nostalgia! Titles include "You Told Me", "I'll Spend My Life With You", "Band 6", "I Can't Get Her Off My Mind", "Mr Webster", "Sunny Girlfriend", "Zilch", "No Time", "Early Morning Blues And Greens", "Randy Scouse Git". LP, Vinyl record album

PlainsongIn Search Of Amelia Earhart ... LP
Elektra, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
An overlooked gem from early 70s Elektra – a wonderfully warm, wonderfully solid set of rootsy rock from this group headed by Ian Matthews! The set moves past some of Matthews' earlier efforts – a bit tighter at times, yet still far from any country rock cliches at all – definitely done at a time when this mixing of modes was still a very fresh concept for musicians like Ian, who were more than willing to find a lot of paths of their own. Some of the headier moments really make great use of the darker guitar corners of Andy Roberts – who works in subtle, but great ways – and the set also features a nice mix of acoustic and electric elements, served up sparely, and recorded in a really great way. Titles include "Yo Yo Man", "Louise", "Call The Tune", "Raider", "Side Roads", "I'll Fly Away", and "For The Second Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Natalie PrassNatalie Prass ... LP
Space Bomb, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 22.98
A straight-up beautiful, surprisingly mature self-titled album by Natalie Prass – with a blend of timeless blue-eyed soul and lush, almost orchestral pop songcraft. Stylistically, Natalie reminds us of Dusty Springfield for the cosmopolitan country soul, but she also shows more creatively adventurous influences – think Harry Nilsson or Van Dyke Parks – but the vibe is ultimately fresh and new. We haven't even raved about her voice yet, and that's the most charming aspect. It's lovely, delicate and mature. She's the real deal, folks! Includes "My Baby Don't Understand Me", "Bird Of Prey", "Your Fool", "Christy", "Why Don't You Believe In Me", "Violently", "Never Over You", "Reprise" and "It Is You". LP, Vinyl record album

ShantiShanti ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
A pretty hip blend of Indian music and more conventional rock instrumentation – and a surprisingly overlooked record for the time! These guys are less in the funky sitar mode than artists like Ananda Shankar, but do use tabla and sarod in really great ways – to augment long-spun rock tracks that have more conventional lyrics, but which often step aside to allow plenty of space for the instruments to take over! Rhythms are very fresh – especially with the use of tabla and other Indian percussion – and the set was put together by the old Pacific Jazz head Richard Bock, with a style that's kind of a 70s evolution of some of his 60s projects on World Pacific. Titles include "Innocence", "We Want To Be Free", "Good Inside", "Shanti", "Lord I'm Comin Round", and "Out Of Nowhere". CD

Guy SkornikPour Pauwels ... CD
EMI/Lion, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99
Lost legendary work from Guy Skornik – a heady set from early 70s France, and proof that there's a hell of a lot of greatness to discover on that scene! The album's got a blend of psych fuzz and deeper ideas that's not that far from Serge Gainsbourg – although the overall presentation is more cerebral, and influenced by the ideas of GI Gurdjieff, carried out by Skornik in this sublime blend of acoustic elements and larger orchestrations directed by jazzman Ivan Jullien! Like some of the best French work of this time, the album has a wonderful balance between the personal and professional – the intimate and the ambitious – which really makes things exciting and fresh, and very different than anything you might have been digging on this side of the Atlantic at the time. Titles include "Realite", "L'Ile De Paques", "Fulcanni", "Je Vois Ce Que Je Crois", "Quest Ce Que Le Dream", and "Je Ne Sais Pas Je Ne Sais Plus Rien". CD

SupertrampCrime Of The Century ... CD
A&M, 1974. Used ... $1.99
Pure mainstream 70s pop genius, the most fully-formed of all early Supertramp albums – and a record that's filled with a surprising amount of great Fender Rhodes moments too! The set's a masterpiece from start to finish – filled with themes of loss and loneliness, but served up by the group with an incredibly redemptive sense of majesty and power – really fresh for the time, and still wonderful all these many years later – despite the fact that so many of these songs have gone onto become classics. The keyboards on the set work perfectly with the oddly-timed rhythms of the tunes – and there's a great blend here between high concept and straight ahead pop – on titles that include "School", "Bloody Well Right", "Asylum", "Dreamer", "Rudy", and "Crime Of The Century".
