Jan AkkermanProfile ... LP
Sire, 1972. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Very heavy stuff from guitarist Jan Akkerman – almost more rock than jazz, with a hard-on jamming style that was the heaviest the European scene had to offer at the time! Some tracks have a bit of funky rhythm, but the real focus here is on the guitar – not only the jamming electric, but also Spanish guitar, alto lute, and a bit of bass on a few tracks – played with some sensitive acoustic complexity that really expands the emotive feel of the record. Other players include Ferry Maat on piano, Bert Ruiter on bass, and Pierre Van Der Linden on drums – and titles include "Stick", "Minstrel/Farmers Dance", "Kemps Jig", "Etude", "Maybe Just A Dream", and the extended "Fresh Air" suite.

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

Joan BaezFarewell Angelina (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vanguard, Mid 60s. Used ... $5.99
Joan Baez, back when she was really pretty darn amazing – a young, fresh, powerful force in 60s folk music! The set features Baez on vocals and guitar – with additional electric guitar on a few tracks, a bit of mandolin, and some bass. Includes great readings of Dylan tunes "Farewell Angelina", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", "Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", and "Daddy You Been On My Mind" – plus Donovan's "Colours".

BangMother/Bow To The King ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy ... $7.99
Bang have opened up their lineup a bit since their tight debut as a trio – but the core energy of their music is very firmly still in place – right down to the excellent sound they get recording down at the Criteria Studios in Miami! These guys are one of those groups that should have been huge – tight, focused, and incredibly hard-rocking – gifted with a great ear for penning a tune, and a strong ability to find really fresh formations from the familiar lineup of guitar, bass, and drums! There's a open, honest quality to the album that makes it wonderfully free from cliche – as does the lack of any posturing on any group members either a sense of unified cohesion that some of their contemporaries might have taken as a model. Drummer Tony D'Iorio isn't in the group this time around, but he's still helping write the tunes – and the drums are taken over by the equally strong Duris Maxwell and Bruce Gary. Some tracks also feature some surprising soulful backing vocals by singers Donny Gerrard, Clydie King, and Vanetta Fields – and titles include "Mother", "Humble", "Idealist Realist", "Bow To The King", "Tomorrow", and "Feel The Hurt".

BeatlesRevolver ... LP
Apple/EMI, 1966. Good+ ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono UK pressing, with yellow logos, XEX 605 - 2/3, "Dr Robert" on cover & "Doctor Robert" on label. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles. Cover has some wear, aging along the opening and a name in pen on the back.)

Alan Lee BrackettPeanut Butter Conspiracy Theories – Lost Songs 1967/1968 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Out-Sider (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Rare work from Alan Lee Brackett of Peanut Butter Conspiracy fame – spare recordings made during the time of that great group's heyday, but music with a very different mood overall! Maybe it's the acoustic guitar and spare production of some of the tracks, or maybe it's just the spirit that Brackett's going for in the songs – but there's almost an introspective vibe to the record that's a shift from the sound of the group – even on some of the numbers that pick up a bit of fuzz on the guitars. The package is great, with detailed notes and fresh mastering of the songs – and titles include "A Plea For Peace", "Love's Only Sleeping", "Freeways Of Love", "I Don't Care What You Do Anymore", "Morning", "Shell Of A Man", "Soul Diggers", and "Summertime Changes".

Clear Blue SkyClear Blue Sky ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
An insanely ripping little record – one that comes on with all the raw power of the heaviest work by Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin at the time – even though these guys never hit that sort of fame! The group's a trio with an incredibly deft touch – able to make the simple combination of guitar, bass, and drums explode in wonderfully fresh ways – with some quick-changes that really leave us breathless, and really show off their amazing talents – but never in a way that's overdone at all – as these guys have more of the bottom-end, blues-inspired appeal of Zeppelin during their early years. Vocals are by guitarist John Simms, who's also got a wild way of singing – and titles include "The Rocket Ride", "I'm Comin Home", "Birdcatcher", "My Heaven", "You Mystify", and "Tool Of My Trade".

Dantalion's ChariotChariot Rising (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
An amazing step sideways for London's Zoot Money – a move from mod to psych, with a trippy quality that's quite different from his jazzy sound a few years before! The group's got legendary fame – not just for the shift in styles by Zoot, but also for the fact that it features key work from a young Andy Summers – later of The Police – who works here with some great tones on guitar, and plenty of fresh ideas in all the songs he penned on the record! Money's vocals are wonderful – almost as if Georgie Fame were singing on a psych album – which is as unusual and compelling as you might think. These sessions were recorded in the late 60s, but mostly unissued at the time – but really rank with the best of the early Syd Barrett or Kevin Ayers generation – with titles that include "Coffee Song", "Madman Running Through The Fields", "This Island", "High Flying Bird", "Four Firemen", "Soma (parts 1 & 2)".

Bob DylanTriplicate (3LP 180 gram vinyl set – with download) ... LP
Columbia, 2017. New Copy 3LP ... $46.99
Bob Dylan takes on the American songbook once again – revisiting the territory of classic 20th century songwriters that he touched on the Fallen Angels album, but in an overstuffed mode that definitely warrants the Triplicate title! The triple-length format really has Dylan going to town on the material – and maybe doing a lot more than just trying to ape an older singer like Frank Sinatra – as the arrangements are often surprisingly fresh, and almost hit the kind of country/standard mode that Willie Nelson hit with his Stardust recording. In fact, given the rasp and world-heavy tone of Dylan's voice, and the strong use of both acoustic and steel guitar on some of the tunes, the whole thing maybe feels more like a vision of midcentury, seen through a lens that gives the sound of Nashville a lot more importance in the canon. The set was recorded at the Capitol Studios, which seems a great place to capture this vibe – and titles include, not surprisingly, "Stardust", plus "This Nearly Was Mine", "Stormy Weather", "Once Upon A Time", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "As Time Goes By", "Imagination", "Day In Day Out", "There's A Flaw In My Flue", "These Foolish Things", and "You Go To My Head".

Flying LizardsMoney/Summertime Blues ... 12-inch
Virgin, 1979. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $3.99
One of THE seminal post-punk dance singles – a twin pair of cover versions that are both pretty darn great! The Flying Lizards will always be remembered for their tinny cover version of "Money" – one that's way way different from the original Motown tune, and taken in a kitschy style that pokes a lot of fun at the lyrics. "Summertime Blues" is also taken in a very fresh way – a bit less of a groover than the a-side, but still nicely retooled with a colder dancefloor edge. (Soul, Rock) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tommy James & the ShondellsCrimson & Clover ... LP
Roulette, 1968. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A sublime pop psych classic from Tommy James & The Shondells – a record that's quite different than some of the janglier work the group was issuing a few years before – and a perfect example of the way that just a few slight studio tricks can really transform a record! The tunes are all short and focused, but produced with lots of cool reverb, echo, and fuzzy touches on the sides – never overindulgent, and still plenty tuneful – but with so many weird little edges that they come through with a sound that's still pretty darn fresh after all these years – even if you think you know these guys from their hits. Titles include "Kathleen McArthur", "Do Something To Me", "I Am A Tangerine", "Smokey Roads", and "Breakaway" – plus the classic hits "Sugar On Sunday", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", and "Crimson & Clover".

LeavesHey Joe ... LP
Mira, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $29.99
To most folks in the world, this classic LA garage band will always be remembered for their incredible version of "Hey Joe" – done in a rolling Love-esque sweeping guitar version that still sounds incredibly fresh. To Dusty Groove customers, though, this album's always in demand for the group's version of "Get Out Of My Life, Woman" – which begins with monster drums and off-kilter piano that just won't quit. It's one of the best versions of the song – and it sounds great amidst other garage psyche numbers like "War Of Distortion", "Dr Stone", "Just A Memory", and "Words". LP, Vinyl record album

LoveLove (mono) ... LP
Elektra/Rhino, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... On July 11, 2017
Love's first album – a seminal bit of Sunset Strip rock, and every bit as powerful today as it was in the 60s! The style's a bit sharper-edged than the group's classic and more familiar Forever Changes set, but it's still pretty darn great – a completely fresh batch of guitar-heavy tunes that bristle with a sound that's a lot more sinister than some of the group's contemporaries. There's a few folksy or bluesy elements in the mix, but they're almost used in a way that parodies bigger acts of the time – turning the familiar into the freaky, all with a sense of power that's simply mindblowing. Titles include the group's excellent version of Burt Bacharach's "My Little Red Book", plus "Hey Joe", "Emotions", "A Message To Pretty", "Mushroom Clouds", "And More", and "Coloured Balls Falling".

Martha & The MuffinsDanseparc ... LP
RCA, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of the best albums ever from Martha & The Muffins – one of the coolest groups on the Canadian scene of the early 80s! The group do a great job of picking up some of the best post-punk influences of the British and American scenes of the time – slightly funky rhythms, jagged guitars, and well-penned lyrics that keep things vivid and evocative. The tunes have an appeal that still holds very strongly all these years later – thanks partly to the well-sung vocals of Martha Johnson, who's a bit more confident than some of her contemporaries, but never goes too far over the top, or into commercial territory. Daniel Lanois handled production on the record, and the set's a great example of his talent – filled with little Eno-like elements amidst the catchier lyrics of the tunes – a real sonic sensitivity that's kept this one fresh for us. Titles include "Sins Of Children", "Obedience", "World Without Borders", "Several Styles Of Blonde Girls Dancing", "Boys In The Bushes", "What People Do For Fun", and "Whatever Happened To Radio Valve Road".

John MartynTumbler (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A record that's hard to do justice in words – as it's so unusual, so individual, it still stands as one of the best moments of John Martyn's career! Sure, the guy came from folk music, and works here on acoustic guitar alongside his vocals – and sure, he was part of a groundbreaking, free-thinking generation of post-folkies that also included Nick Drake and Donovan – but like those two important contemporaries, there's a sound here that goes beyond easy style or summation – a fantastically fresh approach that's still maybe the best place to open people's eyes to Martyn's genius, even after all these years. The songs are relatively spare – which is great, because the wonderful Harold McNair provides plenty of flute lines throughout – with just a bit of accompaniment from Paul Wheeler on second guitar and Dave Moses on bass – all produced very thoughtfully by the young Al Stewart. Most tunes are originals by Martyn – and titles include "The Gardeners", "A Day At The Sea", "Dusty", "Winding Boy"," Hello Train", "Fly On Home", and "The River". LP, Vinyl record album

MoveMagnetic Waves Of Sound – The Best Of The Move (CD/DVD) ... CD
Fly/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s. New Copy CD & DVD ... $16.99
The title's a fantastic way to describe the music of The Move – as the group have a hypnotic sound that's a unique blend of garage roots, mod evolution, and a budding love of psych elements – all fused together in a mindblowing flow that makes the group one of the most consistently compelling acts of their time! The Move maybe never got the kind of bigger nod as other Brit groups like The Pretty Things or Small Faces – but their sound is every bit as essential to that important moment of the scene, and is maybe as ripe for rediscovery as The Creation all these many years later – a very fresh look back at a moment you thought you already knew – but then realize had so much great stuff going on, there's a huge amount to still learn. This set is a perfect place to start – as it features a CD with 21 gems, including classic singles, mono mixes, and album tracks – titles that include "Night Of Fear", "When Alice Comes Back To The Farm", "Brontosaurus", "Curly", "Blackberry Way", "Fire Brigade", "Flowers In The Rain", "Kilroy Was Here", "California Man", "Do Ya", "China Town", "Ella James", "Tonight", and "What". Also features a DVD – with 21 great performances by the group – including a promotional film for "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", and a BBC TV Colour Me Pop show from 1969 with 9 tracks, then other BBC and German TV performances from 1967 trough 1970!

Nirvana's riveting Incesticide – which at the time, looked like a mere placeholder for Geffen to sate the suddenly massive new fanbase of the band, between proper albums – but it turned out to be nearly as essential as anything they'd ever put out! A great batch of songs that are as fresh as ever, thanks to them getting comparatively little air time, as opposed to the Nevermind and In Utero hits. Titles include "Sliver" (our pick for the greatest Nirvana song ever – and their most classic punk rock-styled song), "Stain", "Been A Son", "Son Of A Gun", "Molly's Lips", "Beeswax", "Downer", "Aero Zeppelin", and "Big Long Now".

Os MutantesJardim Eletrico (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Quite possibly the last truly sublime album ever recorded by Os Mutantes – a set that's a bit more rock-oriented then their first few, but still pretty revolutionary overall! The group have expanded to a quintet at this point, but haven't yet falling into the guitar-heavy groove of later years – and Rogerio Duprat is working with the group on arrangements, although Mutantes member Arnaldo Baptista is handling production chores himself. Odd styles still slide into the mix as the tunes roll on – creating that great sense of surprise that makes their best work so great, and keeping things fresh even when a bit more straight ahead! Titles include a reprise of "Baby", one of the group's early classics – plus "Portugal De Navio", "Virginia", "Tecnicolor", "El Justicero", "Lady, Lady", "Sarava", "It's Very Nice Pra Xuxu", and "Top Top".

✨✧ Procol HarumProcol Harum ... LP
Deram, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
The amazing first album from Procol Harum – a group with a sound that's still unlike anyone else we can think of – even though they were a key part of the London scene of the 60s! The group are steeped in all of the blues, soul, and jazz elements that influenced so many other British acts of the period – but they have this way of presenting the music that brings a whole new sort of drama to the music – this flair that never overwhelms, and instead embellishes the music in this really special way – so that the tunes have this brilliance that's kept them fresh for many decades to follow! Lead singer Gary Brooker is a key part of the record's magic – a very distinctive singer – and a young Robin Trower contributes plenty on guitar, as does Matthew Fisher on Hammond. But there's also some arrangements that really set the whole thing in an unusual direction – and which make the record way more than just another bluesy rock set from the time. Hard to argue with the baroque brilliance of "She Wandered Through The Garden Fence", "A Christmas Camel", "Salad Days", "Repent Walpurgis", and "Conquistador" – not to mention the hit, "Whiter Shade Of Pale".
