✨✧ RaspberriesFresh ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Used ... Temporarily 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".

Minty Fresh, 1998. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album of jangly pop tunes, and one that makes us recall our favorite moments of the C86 generation! These guys know how to write great little songs which unfold like pretty little flowers – not threatening, but always very pleasant, and very nicely produced. Tracks include "Sugar & Promises", "Sunday Morning", "Chocolates", "Angel On A Trampoline", and "Photograph". CD

Jan AkkermanProfile ... LP
Sire, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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".

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".

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".

Bob DylanTriplicate (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia, 2017. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99 22.98
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".

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".

Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 2 – Scratch ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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

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!

Love SculptureForms & Feelings ... LP
Parrot, 1969. Very Good ... $16.99
Wonderful work from Love Sculpture – a heavy British trio from the end of the 60s – and one that features a young Dave Edmunds on guitar! There's a slight bluesy undercurrent in Dave's style, but the music also has that tightly compressed sound that would emerge more strongly during his hit solo years – yet which is presented here with some very nice rough edges. Songwriting is especially great – a fresh approach to territory that was beginning to sound a bit stale in the hands of some of the group's contemporaries – presented here with a clean, lean sound that's almost a precursor to power pop at points, yet which still has a heavier late 60s rock feel. Titles include "In The Land Of The Few", "Seagull", "People People", "Mars", "Sabre Dance", "Farandole", and "You Can't Catch Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Magic MixtureThis Is The Magic Mixture ... LP
Saga (UK), 1968. Very Good- ... $99.99
The sole album from this offbeat psyche outfit from the UK – a really moody little set, and one with an introspective quality that we really like! The sound isn't as fully freaky as other psyche records, and the group have a great way of staying in the lower end of their tones – a style that makes the record feel nicely brooding at times, kind of head-nodding down in the fuzz with a garagey feel that's almost a precursor to the 80s Spacemen 3 generation, but often a bit more tuneful too! Instrumentation includes a fair bit of organ, and titles include "New Man", "I'm So Sad", "Urge To Leave", "Slowly The Day", "You", "It's Alright By Me", and "Tomorrow's Sun". CD features full notes, vintage photos, and bonus tracks that include "Pearly Queen", "Captain Marvel", "Fresh Garbage", and "My Days Are Numbered". 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!

Geffen, 1992. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $43.99 49.98
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".

NRBQHigh Noon – A 50 Year Retrospective (5CD set) ... CD
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!

Os MutantesJardim Eletrico (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About April 25, 2017 (delayed)
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".

A landmark LP! 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) LP, Vinyl record album

RotomagusSky Turns Red – The Complete Anthology ... LP
Lion, Early 70s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Rare rock from Rotomagus – a heavy group from France – the complete discography of the group, and a completely fresh discovery to us! The sound is loose, ragged and raw on the unreleased album demo that's covers the first half of the anthology – which only enhances the power of it. Singer Alain Fontaine sings, screams and wails in English – fascinatingly, he is a good singer, but shrieks his head off with abandon on some killer songs here. The band is just as strong, showing command of rhythm and with strong solos as well as bashing away with intensity. In some ways, it's a late 60s-style heavy psych album, but played at breakneck speed, rugged soul and with little effort to tidy anything up. The second half is much different – featuring singles the group cut for Polydor, CBS and other labels – far less raucous and more French pop psych-indebted, and those numbers are great, too! They work as well in frenzy as they do with trippy harmonies – very impressive! Titles include "Laureline", "Little Green Man", "Fighting Cock", "Shout Now", "I Dig Life", "The Flufluting Flatmul" and more from the unreleased demo album, plus the rare singles "Le Haut Du Pave", "Nevada", "Eros", "Madame Wanda", "Laureline", "The Sky Turns Red" and more.

Spacemen 3Performance (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Genius, 1989. Used ... $4.99
The fuzzed out drone rock of Spaceman 3 – live in Amsterdam in the summer of '88! Where the group's best studio recordings blended weary, but catchy melodies and some more delicate songs with the heady distorted guitar sound. The live set, if this and the other recordings we've heard are representative, focuses a bit more on the latter, and it sounds pretty fresh and invigorating all these years later. Includes "Mary Anne", "Come Together", "Things'll Never Be The Same", "Take Me To The Other Side", "Rollercoaster". "Starship" and "Walking With Jesus". CD

SupertrampCrime Of The Century (Original Master Recording) ... LP
A&M/Mobile Fidelity, 1974. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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".

Dwight YoakamGuitars Cadillacs Etc Etc (3LP deluxe version) ... LP
Reprise, 1984. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
The legendary debut full length for Dwight Yoakam – a honky tonk classic delivered with inimitable swagger! It's not only one of the finest country albums of its decade, we'd honestly rank Guitars Cadillacs Etc Etc up there with best country albums ever. Really! The mid 80s isn't one of the best remembered eras in country music – even hardscrabble heroes like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson were fumbling around for the right balance of traditionalism and modernism at the dawn of the CD era – so there's no overstating what a huge breath of fresh air Yoakam was at time. He pays heartfelt homage to roots rock and honky tonk tradition, but he honed his craft in the LA club scene of the early 80s, giving his way with a classic sound an edge like no others at the time. A masterpiece. Titles include "South Of Cincinnati", "Bury Me", "Guitars Cadillacs", his killer version of Cash's "Ring Of Fire", "I'll Be Gone", "Miner's Prayer" and more. This great 3LP version is tremendous, too – with full LP of demos dating all the way back to 1981, plus a live LP capturing a gig at The Roxy in LA in '86, around the time Guitars Cadillacs Etc Etc originally came out!
