✨✧ RaspberriesFresh ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
The sweet second album from the Raspberries! The Rasperries were all about the songcraft, bringing sort of an unpretentious, midwestern charm into original tunes that build from the sophisticated pop of the breezy LA scene – much more so than on the Brit Invasion-learned debut album. Fresh relies a bit more on a softer acoustic groove than the debut, with some occasional power pop bite. Tracks include "I Wanna Be With You", "Goin' Nowhere Tonight", "Let's Pretend", "Every Way I Can", "Nobody", "It Seemed So Easy", "Might As Well", If You Change Your Name" and "Drivin' Around".

✨✧ VariousRock 'N Roll Dance Party ... CD
Crown/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not just Rock N Roll, but a classic collection of doo wop, R&B, and more – served up in a massive CD package that brings together all versions of this classic album on Crown Records! The original Rock N Roll Dance Party was a key collection in the late 50s – one that helped push the best R&B artists on the Modern/Kent label to a wider audience, thanks to a more mainstream cover. But as the 60s moved in, the title was re-vamped with new titles – and appeared in different versions that are finally getting sorted out and presented here. The CD features 26 tracks from all the albums – and even if you're not concerned with the discographical information, the whole thing still stands as a hard-rocking collection of grooves – as fresh today as it was nearly 50 years ago! Titles include "Cherry Pie" by Marvin & Johnny, "Don't Be Angry" by The Cadets, "Sunday Meetin Rock" by Johnny Allen, "All Night Long" by Joe Houston, "Dance With Me Henry" by Etta Jones, "Vido's Boogie" by Vido Musso, "Bye Bye Fare Thee Well" by Peppermint Harris, "Ay La Bah" by Dolly Cooper, "Cool Diggin" by Maxwell Davis, "I Want My Baby" by Jimmy Beasley, "Convicted" by Oscar McLollie, and "Have Mercy Miss Percy" by Long Tall Marvin.

BangMother/Bow To The King ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy ... $12.99
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".

Steve Baron QuartetMother Of Us All ... LP
Tetragrammaton, 1969. Very Good+ ... $24.99
The "quartet" in the group's name is well-placed – as there's almost a jazz combo undercurrent to the record at times – hiding beneath some folksier instrumentation and vocals in ways that remind us a lot of Tim Buckley's early best for Elektra! Steve Baron's perhaps a bit less blue-tinged than Buckley on his vocals, but still a pretty great singer/songwriter overall – nicely mature, and quite free of any folk rock cliches – with a fresh appeal that really makes this record worth seeking out. Instrumentation includes acoustic guitar, organ, and piano – but it also feels like there's some vibes lurking back in the mix, giving some tunes a warmly chromatic nature. Manny Albam helped a bit on arrangements, and titles include "Lonely River", "In The Middle", "Goodbye Road", "Mr Green", "God Never Lived For Me", "Shadow Man", and "Bertha Was The Mother Of Us All".

BeatlesLive At The Hollywood Bowl (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Capitol, 1964/1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A fresh visit to the legendary Hollywood Bowl performances by The Beatles in 1964 and 1965 – concert sounds that were originally released in the 70s, but are presented here with great new remastering from the original tapes – plus bonus tracks too! The Beatles stopped touring in 1966 – famously in America – but these tracks capture them when they were at the height of their international touring frenzy, as documented in the film Eight Days A Week, which was the inspiration for this package. Bonus tracks include "You Can't Do That", "Baby's In Black", "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" – and other titles include "Twist & Shout", "Ticket To Ride", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Boys", "Help", "All My Loving", "She Loves You", and "Long Tall Sally".

✨✧ BeatlesRevolver ... LP
Apple/EMI, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
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

John Berberian & The Middle Eastern EnsembleMiddle Eastern Rock (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $31.99
Don't think "rock", think "groove" – because oud player John Berberian takes his instrument into some very groovy territory here – mixing its Mid-East roots with a sweet array of modal rhythms and psychedelic elements – all of which make for an album that's even trippier than you'd guess from its cover! The album's one of the few "jazz meets world" sets that really gets things right – bringing together different global elements to come up with a sound that's wonderfully new and fresh – and which moves the whole thing way past its roots in Turkish, Greek, Armenian, and North African styles! Joe Beck plays some great electric guitar on the record – but the main string focus is on the oud, which Berberian uses with this exotic tinge that rivals the instrument in the hands of Ahmed Abdul-Malik on his own albums like this. The lineup also includes tenor and other reeds from Souren Baronian, plus other percussion, and nice use of electric bass to hold the whole groove together – and titles include "The Oud & The Fuzz", "Tranquility", "Chem-oo-Chem", "Iron Maiden", "Flying Hye", "3/8=5/8=8/8", and "The Magic Ground".

Alan Lee BrackettPeanut Butter Conspiracy Theories – Lost Songs 1967/1968 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Out-Sider (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy ... $25.99
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".

Faces (Small Faces)First Step (colored vinyl) ... LP
Warner, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
The first album ever from The Faces – a mighty merger of half of the old Small Faces with the young Rod Stewart and Ron Wood, fresh from the Jeff Beck group! The meeting of talents really set The Faces on fire – bringing even sharper focus to the group's previous sound, and giving it a stellar frontman in the face of Stewart – who was still brilliantly soulful here, and way far from all the cliches he'd spew in later years! The guitars are fantastic, the rhythms very raw – and the whole record romps along with this messy blend of rootsy elements and garagey power – never letting up the sonic onslaught for a minute. In the US, Warner still tried to market the group by using "Small Faces" on the cover – but trust us, the sound is way different than before – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Stone", "Around The Plynth", "Looking Out The Window", "Nobody Knows", "Wicked Messenger", and the classic "Three Button Hand Me Down".

Five AmericansWestern Union ... LP
Abnak, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
Genius jangle pop from the 60s – great harmonies, tight guitars, and a sound that's familiar but always fresh – the kind of record that should have rivaled bigger hits by The Monkees or Strawberry Alarm Clock! The Five Americans were an incredibly tight group even for their time – a combo who'd learned lessons from The Beach Boys, but kept the rougher energy of their Texas scene – in a way that mixed sweetness with edges, and managed to do a tremendous amount with very little instrumentation or larger arrangements. Titles include the sublime hit "Western Union" – which is followed by a really fresh-voiced batch of tracks that include "Husbands & Wives", "Big Cities", "Sound Of Love", "Tell Ann I Love Her", and "Sympathy".

Flamin GrooviesShake Some Action (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
A great move in a fresh direction for the Flaming Groovies – a set that has the group working with producer Dave Edmunds, and hitting this sweet power pop sort of sound! The Groovies still have all the tight energy of before – but they also seem to be paying tribute to an older vintage of British material – as evidenced by their 60s look on the cover, and the album's back cover parody of a stance by The Beatles! The short tracks are plenty tuneful, and Edmunds has a way of compressing the fuzz down tightly, but never in a way that makes things sound slick or commercial. Vocal chorus bits are especially great – surprisingly catchy, almost in a Brit Invasion way – and titles include "Shake Some Action", "You Tore Me Down", "I Saw Her", "Teenage Confidential", "I Can't Hide", "She Said Yeah", and "Sometimes".

Game TheoryBig Shot Chronicles (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Enigma/Omnivore, 1986. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A still fresh blast of indie pop perfection from Game Theory – a mid 80s effort that's as timeless as anything they ever recorded! With roots in the earlier 80s Pailey Underground scene and a frequently shuffling line-up behind leader Scott Miller, Game Theory really came into a bigger, catchier sound on this should-be classic, with bright but never too glossy production by Mitch Easter. The band never quite transcended their strong college radio fanbase at the time, which is puzzling given the tight, buzzy songcraft and catchy, but never cloying harmonies. It has way too big of a sound to be an 80s secret! Titles include "Here It Is Tomorrow", "Where You Going Northern", "Crash Into June", "Book Of Millionaires", "Erica's Word", "Make Any Vows", "Like A Girl Jesus" and more. 30th Anniversary edition on Omnivore has liner notes by Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields and comes loaded a huge number of bonus tracks. 25 tracks in all!

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.99
A stunning second set from the mighty Gang Of Four – and a record that's got all the power and politics of their famous Entertainment debut! The set's got some wonderfully heavy basslines amidst the scratchy guitar that makes the group so great – but nothing's too polished, certainly not as in their crossover club modes to come – and the call/response vocal style of Andy Gill and Jon King is tremendous – a very fresh way to deliver the message, and one that's still never been matched all these many years later. Titles include "Paralyzed", "What We All Want", "Why Theory", "If I Could Keep It For Myself", "Cheeseburger", "The Republic", "Outside The Trains Don't Run On Time", "In The Ditch", "A Hole In The Wallet", and "He'd Send In The Army".

Tommy James & the ShondellsCrimson & Clover ... LP
Roulette, 1968. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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".

Bob LindElusive Butterfly – The Complete 1966 Jack Nitzsche Sessions (Don't Be Concerned/Photographs Of Feeling) ... CD
World Pacific/Big Beat (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Pop-folk genius from the elusive Bob Lind – two mid 60s albums, both arranged and produced by Jack Nitzsche! Lind's style is way more than typical folk of the time – as his tunes have a fragile sense of poetry that's really beautiful – a bit like the early work of Leonard Cohen, although not as dark – and put together with light strings and interesting orchestrations from Nitzsche that really add a heck of a lot to their mood! We'll be honest in saying that we've always known Lind's title hit "Elusive Butterfly" over the years, but we'd never heard the rest of this work – and we're stunned at the depth and complexity of the music – not just Lind's wonderfully fresh lyrics, but also Nitzche's incredible backings – easily some of his greatest pop work of the 60s! CD features both the albums Don't Be Concerned and Photographs Of Feeling – plus a few bonus tracks – 25 tracks that include "Remember The Rain", "Dale Anne", "Unlock The Door", "Counting", "You Should Have Seen It", "Mr Zero", "Elusive Butterfly", "It Wasn't Just The Morning", "Go Ask Your Man", "I Just Let It Take Me", "A Nameless Request", "Drifter's Sunrise", and "The World Is Just A B-Movie".

LoveDa Capo ... LP
Elektra, 1967. Very Good ... $36.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Maria MuldaurMaria Muldaur ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through! Maria's working here with some older folksy contemporaries – like David Grisman, Ry Cooder, and Jim Keltner – but much of the album has a warm glow overall, and some jazzy inflections that really help change the sound from before. The mighty Nick DeCaro did some great string arrangements on a few tracks – including the sublime "Midnight at the Oasis", one of the best pop tracks to come out of the seventies, and a jazzy ditty that still sounds amazingly fresh today. Other tracks include "Any Old Time", "Mad Mad Me", "Long Hard Time", and "Three Dollar Bill". (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

New York DollsHard Night's Day ... CD
Norton, 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the first recordings ever made by the New York Dolls – a blistering session of 21 demos that were all cut in one night during March of 1973 – creating the sound that formed the blueprint for their classic albums to come! The vibe here is maybe what you would have heard, had you caught the group at one of their legendary Mercer Arts shows – as the tunes are raw, noisy, and effortlessly blend early rock and early punk energy in their performance! The group's got a very fresh sound – having just begun working with second drummer Jerry Nolan – and the guitars from Johnny Thunders and Sylvain Sylvain are razor-sharp throughout. Titles include "Jet Boy", "Looking For A Kiss", "Seven Day Weekend", "Frankenstein", "Who Are The Mystery Girls", "Showdown", "Bad Girl", "Pills", "Personality Crisis", "Don't Start Me Talkin", "Lonely Planet Boy", "Subway Train", "It's Too Late", and "Bad Detective".

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".

Omnivore, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 5CD ... $64.99 69.99
A really mighty collection, and really the first to give NRBQ their full due – as the set not only brings together an amazing scope of sounds recorded over the space of decades, but also includes some new material never issued elsewhere! The package is kind of a history book that starts at the present, then leaps into the past – as some of the new material is on CD1, then CDs 2 through 5 take a very long journey from the group's mid 60s roots as underground southern rockers, through a variety of changes over the 70s, 80s, and 90s. CD2 might well be the coolest – as it features 23 tracks that are just from the years 1966 through 1970 – really demonstrating that New Rhythm & Blues Quartet element that gave the group their name – a fresh take on older R&B modes, but given a bit of a southern rock spin – almost making the group an equivalent to that music that Nitty Gritty Dirt Band were to roots and bluegrass. The package features an insane amount of music – 106 tracks in all, some of them live, some of them rare, and even early home recordings – and the whole thing comes with a huge booklet of notes as well!

Omplatten, 1968. Used ... $9.99
A landmark! This is the first – and the wildest – album by this legendary group that was one of the founding forces of the Tropicalia movement. The music is a wonderful blend of 60s rock and early MPB stuff, with crazy production and a great sense of humor that still keeps the whole thing fresh today. It's no wonder the kids are lapping this one up like mad! Caetano Veloso contributed a number of tracks to the album, including "Panis et Circenses", "Bat Macumba", "Trem Fantastma", and his great "Baby", which is done fantastically here. Great stuff all 'round! (Brazil, Rock) CD
