✨✧ Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (180 gram pressing with poster & prints) ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – super-heavy vinyl!)

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Rowdy, vintage R&B-fueled rockers from The Bama Lamas – a contemporary Chicago band with a retro sound, akin to late 50s though mid 60s ragers from The Burnette Brothers to Screamin' Jay Hawkins and lots in between – and they make it sound fresh and vital! A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more. Recorded in mono – glorious mono! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BeatlesRevolver (180 gram vinyl – mono) ... LP
Apple/EMI, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
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

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".

Big StarLive In Memphis ... CD
Omnivore, 1994. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
The mid 90s Big Star revival – captured live at the New Daisy Theatre, on Beale Street – and the only professionally captured Big Star live performance of any era! This era of Big Star is led by group founders Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens, backed by Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow of avowed Big Star devotees The Posies, and the younger guns more than capably help to bring fresh, exciting life to the catalog and covers. It's anything but a nostalgia trip! These songs were as timeless and relevant in 1994 as they were 2 decades earlier AND 2 decades later – the band's reputation hasn't grown so great over the years by accident – they're really that great! The set includes most of band's most beloved tunes and a cool crop of covers, including "In The Street", "Don't Lie To Me", "Way Out West", "Jesus Christ", "Baby Strange", "September Gurls", Thank You Friends", "For You", "I Am The Cosmos", "The Ballad Of El Goodo", "Til The End Of The Day", "When My Baby's Beside Me and more.

Brewer & ShipleyDown In LA ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
The A&M debut of Brewer & Shipley – and a set that's got a lot deeper sound than the duo's later radio hits! There's a youthful, earnest feel going on here – touched with a bit of sunshine, too – all in that wonderfully fresh feel you'll get from the early A&M forays into rock – this magical vibe that's not nearly as posturing, or as self-conscious as some of the heavier projects from bigger labels at the time. Songwriting is sensitive, delivered beautifully by the two voices – and instrumentation often has acoustic elements that echo the love of country that was bubbling in the LA scene of this late 60s Byrds generation. Yet the vibe is quite different than anything you might know, too – almost somewhere between the Roger Nichols Trio and Lambert & Nuttycomb – showing a nice A&M evolution that links together both acts. Titles include "She Thinks", "Truly Right", "Green Bamboo", "Dreamin In The Shade", "Love Love", and "An Incredible State Of Affairs". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a mostly split top seam.)

✨✧ ColoursColours ... LP
Dot, 1968. Very Good- ... $14.99
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 ... CD
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
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. CD

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

English BeatWha'ppen ... CD
Go Feet/London, 1981. Used ... $7.99
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene! Wha'ppen has lots of fresh instrumentation and experimentation – but that's in service of some tight, insistent songcraft – and they never ever bury their their Caribbean influences. There's a bit more Afro Beat-inspired rhythms and some atmospheric underground pop touches, but it's still get plenty of the Jamaican style we loved about their earlier work, too – on a record that didn't get the acclaim it deserved at the time! Titles include "Monkey Murders", "I Am Your Flag", "Walk Away", "Get A Job", "The Limits We Set", "Dream Home In NZ", and "Drowning". CD

✨✧ Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 2 – Scratch ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ LoveDa Capo ... LP
Elektra, 1967. Very Good- ... $24.99
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
(Original gold label stereo pressing. Cover has ring & edgewear, some marking in pen on the front and back. Labels have names in pen.)

✨✧ LoveLove (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Elektra/Sundazed, 1966. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
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".

Space Bomb, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
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". CD

Arthur RussellWorld Of Arthur Russell ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3 LP ... $26.99 29.98
Music beyond description – a unique blend of disco, funk, avant garde, and dub – the wonderful world of the late Arthur Russell! Russell was a bass player by trade, but he was schooled in both classical and Eastern music forms – and brought an incredibly fresh vision to his work in New York in the late 70s and early 80s. To some, Russell was a groundbreaking disco pioneer – with an offbeat production style and unique conception of rhythm. To others, Russell was a performance artist and avant garde musician – working in circles that included Phillip Glass, David Byrne, and Robert Wilson. This mix of modes was very much a part of the post-disco, post-punk sound of New York at the time – and nobody summarized it (or allowed it!) better than Russell himself. This excellent set from Soul Jazz is one of the first to truly give him his due – and it brings together a large amount of his disco-related projects, plus a few more introspective numbers cut under his own name. The sound is incredible – unlike anything you could categorize – especially on the Russell-titled numbers – and as always with Soul Jazz, the whole thing's beautifully packaged, with rich notes on the music and the person behind it! Titles include "Go Bang (Francois K mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Wax The Van" by Lola, "Is It All Over My Face (Larry Levan mix)" by Loose Joints, "In The Cornbelt (Larry Levan mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Pop Your Funk" by Loose Joints, "Schoolbell/Treehouse (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Indian Ocean, and "Let's Go Swimming (Walter Gibbons mix)", "A Little Lost", "In The Light Of The Miracle", and "Keeping Up" by Arthur Russell himself!

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

Silver BirchSilver Birch ... CD
Granadilla (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99
An unusual folksy sextet from early 70s England – a group who look like a bunch of hippies on the cover, but who come across with a really ancient feel on record! The music has lots of echoes of older English, Scottish, and Irish folk – and when the group harmonize, they sound especially like some Celtic acts – although as with the best UK folk of the period, there's also a different sort of darkness – a strange undercurrent that really keeps things contemporary and fresh. Instrumentation includes harmonium, autoharp, and mandolin – and titles include "Ushers Well", "Lord Franklin", "Glimpse Of Heaven", "Lyke Wake Dirge", "Daddy Fox", and "Crazy Man Michael". 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
