RaspberriesFresh ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Very Good ... $11.99
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".

✨✧ Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

BangMother/Bow To The King (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99
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".

✨✧ 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".

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".

✨✧ Dantalion's ChariotChariot Rising (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
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)".

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".

John FaheyVoice Of The Turtle ... CD
Takoma, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A tremendous early statement from the great guitarist John Fahey – and a record that has all his best ideas coming into really sharp focus! Fahey was a very collaborative person right from the start – even as a record collector, before his own recordings – and that spirit is felt here on some of the duet tracks, in which John and associates perform these acoustic instrumental tunes that plumb the past of underground America, but turn it out again into something completely new and fresh – not folk revial, but more a reworked fantasy of the nation, almost as a refuge for the changes of the late 60s. The sound is beautiful – with a flute accompaniment here, a bit of fiddle there, and even Fahey duetting with himself on guitar – thanks to the magic of overdub. As usual with these early Takoma records, the style is very fluid – sometimes very tied to the 78rpm generation, but other points much more towards the freewheeling guitar introspection of some of Fahey's underground contemporaries. The overall sound is amazing, too – as Fahey almost uses the studio as an additional instrument, but in very subtle ways. Titles include "Bottleneck Blues", "Bill Cheatum", "Lewisdale Blues", "Bean Vine Blues", "A Raga Called Pat (part 3)", "A Raga Called Pat Part IV", "Train", "Je Ne Me Suis Reveillais Matin Pas En May", "The Story Of Dorothy Gooch (part 1)", "Nine Pound Hammer", and "Lonesome Valley".

Fairport ConventionFull House ... LP
A&M, 1970. Very Good ... $11.99
A full house, and a strong change for Fairport Convention – working here without founder Ashley Hutchings or vocalist Sandy Denny – but finding their way forward through the new strengths of Richard Thompson! Thompson contributed more songs to this album than before, and also joins the lineup for a new vocal sound – one that, without any female singer in the mix, really gives the group a different feel than before – almost a fresh take on some of the territory they'd been moving through on previous records. The vocals are often understated, but in a way that gives the guitars, mandolin, and fiddle even more power – but in a way that's more rocky than folksy, and we mean that in the best way possible. Titles include "Poor Will & The Jolly Hangman", "Walk Awhile", "Doctor Of Physick", "Dirty Linen", "Sloth", and "Sir Patrick Spens". (Folk/Country, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful Christmas present from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons – a selection of Holiday tunes all recast with their tremendous harmony sound! The group are surprisingly great in this format – as their music always has this odd undercurrent of melancholy that really brings out the best in the tunes – and which opens up with a deeper feeling than just straight covers of Christmas tunes. Frankie's nose is right out in the lead on most numbers, and thanks to production by Bob Crewe and arrangements by Sid Bass, even familiar tunes are presented here in very fresh versions! Titles include "The Little Drummer Boy", "What Child Is This", "The Excelsis Deo Medley", "Jingle Bells", "White Christmas", "Christmas Tears", and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus".

Game TheoryBig Shot Chronicles (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Enigma/Omnivore, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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. LP, Vinyl record album

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 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".

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 ... $11.99 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 ... $69.99
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

Sandy NelsonSandy Nelson's Big Sixties Beat Party! – 24 Dance Floor Killers & Instro Killers ... CD
Imperial/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
An instant party from drummer man Sandy Nelson – easily one of the grooviest instrumentalists of the 60s! Nelson had a vibe that was right up there with The Ventures for pure instrumental rocking – but unlike The Ventures and others of their ilk, Sandy's main instrument of choice was the drums – which meant that most of his records had an extra punch in the rhythm department, and thundered with a booming bottom sound that always made a Nelson session a dancefloor treat! This well-done package is quite possibly the best collection of Sandy's work we've ever seen – and it features a total of 24 tracks pulled from mid 60s albums and singles for Imperial, served up with the usual Ace talent for finding the best of the bunch, and laying them out in an order that always keeps things fresh and nicely paced! Titles include "Hey Joe", "Good Lovin", "Whittier Boulevard", "Com On Let's Go", "Slow Down", "El Greco", "Groovy Grubworm", "Going Up The Country", "I Don't Need No Doctor", "Drums Along The Strip", "Scratchy", and "Sock It To Em JB".

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".

Thrill Jockey, 1999. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful little record from this longtime stalwart of the Chicago scene. Sam started out in Shrimpboat, gained great fame in Sea & Cake, and here delivers his most wonderful performance to date – a beautiful set of jazzy pop tracks, with backing by Josh Abrams, Archer Prewitt, Jim O'Rourke, and the great drummer Chad Taylor. The tracks bristle with a lovely sense of energy, and they have a sophistication that's wonderful – matched with a lyricism that keeps them always sounding fresh. Sam's turned into a wonderful vocalist, too – and we're betting you won't be able to take this one off the turntable once you get started. Titles include "The Shadow", "Don't Bother", "The Company", and "Faces & People". CD

Christmas albums have always been a particular favorite of ours – in case you haven't guessed from our comments on these pages – and we're especially big fans of folks who try to bring something new to the Holiday canon, by coming up with fresh tunes of their own! Rough Shop do exactly that on this special Christmas album – by penning nearly half the tunes themselves, in a home-grown manner that really comes across well – personal tracks that are the real standouts on the record, and way better than the most of the covers here – although the group does a great version of the Marvin Gaye Christmas classic "Purple Snowflakes"! Yet it's their own tunes we love the best – cool indie pop contributions that remind us of the Pearlfishers' Christmas EP from years back – titles that include "Christmas Isn't Like Any Day", "Christmas Time", "A Christmas Snowfall", "Snowbound Girl", "Soul Of Christmas", and "Santa What You Got In The Bag".
