Michael HurleyHi Fi Snock Uptown ... LP
Raccoon/Mississippi, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
Raw & rambling folk sounds from Michael Hurly – recorded in early '72 – some of his better material of the era, living up to if not surpassing his Armchair Boogie of a couple years earlier! Michael's in seemingly amiable spirit here on some tunes, and standing on shakier ground or in scarier waters at other points, with some country rock tinged jams and weirdo troubadour numbers. Titles include "Blue Driver", "Water Train", "The Sun Is Slowly Sinking", "I'm Worried, I'm Worried", "In Florida", "Lilly Pads Upon The Pond", "Trinidad" and more.

✨✧ TrashmenDancin' With Santa/Real Live Doll ... 7-inch
Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Totally rare, totally Trash-y holiday hi-fi cheer from the Trashmen – adding a strange garage charm to the 60s novelty Christmas template! "Dancin' With Santa" has a stripped down Phil Spector kind of vibe, with lots of chimes and soulful backing vocals behind the Trashmen's unusually straight rock tunefulness. "Real Live Doll" is a really weird little charmer, a story song with amusingly stilted, spoken line delivery. It's a great re-production of the original 45, too!

✨✧ VariousWarner Pop Rock Nuggets Vol 1 – Magic Town ... CD
Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally great tracks from a magical moment in pop music – that special period when rock had already gotten going, mainstream pop wasn't as soppy as the decade before, and soul music was starting to have a strong influence in the way both singers and groups delivered their vocals! All those qualities and more come into play here – in a fantastic series of cuts that come from deep in the Warner Brothers vaults – not just music from the main label, but also all the indies they've come to absorb over the years – labels like Colpix, Del-Fi, Gone, Mustang, Jubilee, and others who were an even greater force for music like this! The "nuggets" in the title is one way to see these cuts – material that came out in the generation right before the harder-edged material featured in the Nuggets series – but every bit as inventive and great in its own way. This first volume features a whopping 25 tracks in all – with titles that include "Spanish Armada" by Mel Taylor, "Magic Town" by The Vogues, "Lonely Guy" by The Gallahads, "Find Another Fool" by The Marcels, "Some Other Guy" by Richie Barrett, "I Lost My Baby" by Joey Dee, "Graduation Time" by Barry Mann, "Our Song" by The Volumes, "Silly Boy" by The Hi-Los, "The Last Race" by Jack Nitzsche, "Hey Everybody" by Henry Alston, and "I Paid For The Party" by The Enchanters.

✨✧ VariousVanguard Folk Rock Album ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little set that will completely transform your understanding of folk music in the 60s – one that picks up with a second waves of folkies who were really opening their minds to the changes in rock music at the time! The styles here all blur wonderfully – as more standard 60s folk music comes into play with psychedelic instrumentation, tripped-out production, harmony pop, and a range of different modes that all make for some incredibly far-reaching work. All tunes come from the Vanguard Records catalog – a label who were making some initial waves in the early 60s, but who really came into their own during this heady era – and helped set the tone for the huge singer/songwriter boom in the mainstream years to come. The set features a total of 22 tracks from Vanguard – titles that include "Honey" by Eric Anderson, "Back On The Street Again" by Steve Gillette, "Someone To Talk My Troubles To" by Judy Roderick, "No Rest For The Weary" and "You'll Never Know What's In My Heart" by The Hi-Five, "Reason To Believe" by Patrick Sky, "Young Blues" by The Vagrants, "Changes" by Jonathan & Leigh, "Reno Nevada" by Richard & Mimi Farina, "January Morning" and "When I Was A Cowboy" by Ian & Sylvia, and "Long Black Cadillac" by Jackie Washington.

Bad Brains (the album) was originally issued on the then cassette-only ROIR label – -this version restores the iconic original cover art and features 15 tracks: Titles include "Sail On", "Don't Need It", "Attitude", "The Regulator", "Banned In DC", "Jah Calling", "Supertouch/Shitfit", "Leaving Babylon", "Fearless Vampire Killers", "I", "Big Take Over", "Pay To Cum", "Right Brigade", "I Luv I Jah" and "Intro".

✨✧ BeckSea Change (with download) ... LP
Geffen, 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Beck's psych folk record – and one that he aptly titled Sea Change – as it's a pretty huge change of pace from his earlier albums! Beck was as well known for his unpredictable stylistic twists and turns as he was for anything else by 2002 – and he'd dabbled in understated songcraft and occasional melancholy before. But Sea Change is his first full length foray into this kind of thing – with songs that range from acoustic folk rock, to slightly more experimental backing, to some lush, string-accented moments that deserves comparison to Five Leaves Left-period Nick Drake. A unique gem in Beck's canon! Includes "The Golden Age", "Paper Tiger", "Guess I'm Doing Fine", "Lonesome Tears", "End Of The Day", "It's All In Your Mind", "Round The Bend", "Already Dead", "Little One", "Side Of The Road" and more.

David Bowie/Original CastLazarus ... CD
Columbia, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $17.99
The last great work that Davie Bowie gave the world – a live theater performance based around some of his most compelling tracks – one created and supervised by Bowie himself during some of his final moments on the planet! The music here is a mix of older classics, re-performed by singers who include Michael C Hall, Sophia Anne Grace, and Christina Milioti – and the music is handled by Henry Hay, who worked with Bowie on the Next Day album. There's also a few final studio sessions that Bowie did during the Blackstar record – and which appear here as a nice addition – with the same great production by Tony Viconti, and backing by the group of Donny McCaslin. The songs are heavy on some great post-Ziggy Bowie moments – including work from the Berlin years – and titles include "It's No Game", "No Plan", "Changes", "Absolute Beginners", "Always Crashing In The Same Car", "Sound & Vision", "All The Young Dudes", "Heroes", "This Is Not America", and "When I Met You".

Paul AnkaWalk A Fine Line ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Paul Anka may be hiding his balding pate under a hat on the cover, but the album's got the singer being very open with his style – and hitting a great AOR mode for the 80s! Anka may have hit a few clunky spots in the 70s – but he's maturing nicely on this overlooked album from the following decade – working a gentle current of soul with his vocals, amidst arrangements from David Foster, Michael McDonald, and producer Denny Diante – with a smooth vibe that's never trying too hard for any sort of easy crossover fame. Most cuts are originals by Anka – showing his songwriting skills in fine form – and titles include "Second Chance", "Golden Boy", "Gimme The Word", "This Is The First Time", "No Way Out", and "Darlin Darlin".

Blue ThingsBlue Things Story Vol 1 ... LP
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Mind blowing mid 60s rock from The Blue Things – gritty yet melodic rock from Kansas scene that's rumbling, a bit raucous, and totally killer – and it still sounds great! This is the first ever compilation of the group's 64-65 recordings, first released in 1987 and was out of print since since '89 – we're imagining these nuggets from 2 decades earlier will sound incredible 2 decades from now, too! Titles include "Punkin Doodle", "Just Two Days Ago", "Baby My Heart", "Silver & Gold", "P's & Q's", "Pretty Things-Oh", "Your Turn To Cry", "Desert Wind", "Nancy Whisky", "La Do Da Da" and more.

Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
A stone classic from Blood Sweat & Tears – and a record that went onto have a tremendous impact in jazz, rock, funk, and soul! The group's format is plenty darn famous – adding a lot of horns to hip riffing grooves – but despite countless plays on oldies stations over the years, this initial album still has a power that's undeniable – a way of putting the whole thing together that really uses the best elements of the late 60s studio – handled with sweet production from James William Guerico that rivals his best work for Chicago! Even the lead vocals by David Clayton Thomas hold up nicely – and the set includes the classics "Variations On A Theme By Eric Satie", "And When I Die", "Smiling Phases", "More & More", "Spinning Wheel", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

✨✧ VariousPunk 45 – Extermination Nights In The Sixth City – Cleveland, Ohio Punk & The Decline Of The Midwest 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Cleveland was one of the coolest cities in the punk rock underground of the late 70s – and was proof that groundbreaking music didn't just come from New York or LA at the time! This batch of rare Cleveland material is arguably some of the hippest, most interesting work of the whole indie scene of the US during the period – really amazing stuff that doesn't just grab a few simple chords to play fast and loud, and which instead goes for the kind of unusual styles, sounds, and timings that were only used by the few most forward-thinking acts of the UK post-punk scene. Some of these groups are still working a very strong influence on musicians today – and for good reason too – and this volume may well be the best of the whole Punk 45 series on Soul Jazz – with great liner notes from Jon Savage on the scene and the songs! Titles include "Love Meant To Die" by Jazz Destroyers, "Street Where Nobody Lives" by The Pagans, "Tele K Killing" by The Broncs, "Splitter Splat" by Electric Eels, "Final Solution" by Pere Ubu, "No" by Human Switchboard, "A" by X-X, "Everything Near Me" by Styrene Money, "Life Stinks" by Rocket From The Tombs, and "Drano In Your Veins" by Poli Styrene Jass Band.

Archie WhitewaterArchie Whitewater (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cadet/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A damn legendary record from the last years of Chess Records – and for good reason, too! Archie Whitewater were a group that was years ahead of its time – a rock combo, but one with real genre-crossing sensibilities that made them perfect for the experimental styles at the Cadet/Concept side of Chess – the same slice of the musical universe that gave us Rotary Connection and important productions from Charles Stepney! The sound here has some surprisingly soulful elements at times – especially the instrumentation, which features some great break moments that get nice and funky, and strands of soulful jazz and blues that really make the music way different than most other groups we can think of – or maybe a bit like a rare elite who shared such visionary territory with Archie Whitewater, such as Shades Of Joy on their first Fontana record. The keyboards and sax lines are as great as the drums – and the vocals have a melancholy undercurrent that's a really refreshing change from some of the overly-postured modes you'd get from other groups in 1970. Titles include the sublime sample cut "Cross Country" – but there's loads of other nice ones with the same stripped-down "Dusty Fingers" sort of groove – and other titles include "Life Is A River", "Home Again", "Lament For The Walking Dead", "Seacoast", "Country To the City", "Friends & Neighbors", and "Mist Of The Early Morning".

Banks & Steelz (RZA & Paul Banks)Anything But Words ... LP
Warner, 2016. New Copy 2 LPs ... $14.99 21.98
Wu Tang mastermind and all around modern renaissance man RZA teams up with Interpol vocalist Paul Banks...and it works. Wow! Considering the pros and cons of the contemporary musical landscape, one of the major pros is the cross-pollinating possibilities of what would've seemed crazy in the past. Still, the inspiration that might make a solid single happen with disparate figures rarely extends to an album – which is what makes Banks & Steelz such a leftfield win. RZA rhyming over hip hop/synth pop hybrid production and sharing vocals and production duties with Banks – with guest appearances by fellow Wu vets Meth, Ghost and Masta Killa, plus Kool Keith and Florence Welch. Includes "Giant", "Ana Electronic", "Sword In The Stone" feat Kool Keith, "Wild Season" woth Florence Welch, "Conceal", "Love And War" with Ghostface, "Can't Hardly Feel", "One By One", "Gonna Make It" and "Point Of View" with Method Man & Masta Killa.

Omnivore, Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $34.99 49.98
More of a journey than just a straight record – as this incredible 3CD set brings together all the recordings that went into Big Star's amazing Third (or 3rd if you please) – one of the best one-time lost rock albums of the 70s! How this could have ever been thought of as anything less than essential is a mystery – and the 3 discs here really show the amazing work that went into recording the whole thing There's this weary quality to the vocals and songwriting of Alex Chilton that's sublime – paired with a raw, rocking underbelly – and finished with strings, horns and other Memphis-y accents. You could think that it all sounds like an ill fit – but no, it's glorious! Titles on the core album include "Stroke It Noel", their great cover of the Velvets "Femme Fatale", "Thank You Friends", "Jesus Christ", "Holocaust", "Blue Moon", and "Take Care". But the package goes way past that – to feature the core album in 20 master tracks (more than the original) – plus 24 more tracks that are "demos to sessions to roughs" – and 25 more tracks that are "roughs to mixes". You'll hear lots of songs change along the way – and the whole thing comes in a book-style package, with detailed notes from both the original session participants, and artists influenced by the group!

Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature! Things never get to overdone, but still go plenty far out – and titles include "Flying", "Imphormal", "Murder", "Gap", "New Experiences", "Fall Out", "Description", and "Obstinacy".

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.

✨✧ VariousShazam & Other Instrumentals Written By Lee Hazlewood ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great instrumentals from the legendary Lee Hazlewood – a man you might know for his lyrical wit on record, but also a studio genius with a real ear for an electric guitar! Keep in mind that one of Lee's big claims to fame was his early productions for twangy guitar giant Duane Eddy – and know that in the years after those hits, Hazlewood still spent plenty of time in the studio with other instrumental acts, too – a good deal of whom then also provided the backings for Lee's own vocal records! This collection finally brings together some of the best of Lee Hazlewood's instrumental moments – a wealth of raunchy guitar numbers, surf instrumentals, and lots of other cool cuts that make wonderful use of echo, reverb, and other special early studio effects. The package has the usual wonderful Ace Records notes and attention to detail – and titles include "Moovin & Groovin" by The Rhythm Rockers, "Stalkin" by Duane Eddy, "The Stinger" by Al Casey, "Baja" by Jack Nitzsche, "Salty" by Tony Castle & The Raiders, "Guitar Man" by The Lively Ones, "El Aguila" by The Astronauts, "The Phantom Driver" by Hal Blaine & The Young Cougars, "Angry Generation" by Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, "Desi's Drums" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Zapata" by Jack Nitzsche, "Bo Dacious" by The Whisk Kids, "Some Velvet Morning" by Afro Blues Quintet, "These Boots Are Made For Walking" by Billy Strange, and "Muchacho" by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks.

The sounds here hardly slither at all – as they're laid down by cool Japanese groups of the 60s, who move with the best upbeat energy of the garage scene at the time! As you might know from the odd track used in a Quentin Tarantino scene over the years, Japan had a pretty groovy rock scene back in the 60s – one that really embraced the best guitar-based sounds from the US and UK, and turned out a pretty darn great home-grown variety of its own! Many of these groups sing in English, and they also use lots of fuzzy guitars and swirling keyboards – to serve up some killer cuts that include "Knock On Wood" by The Voltage, "Zen Blues" by The Golden Cups, "Thinking Of You Baby" by The Spiders, "Everything's Alright" by Outcast, "Comin Home Baby" by The Sharp Five, "Blue Feeling" by The Jaguars, and "Yo Sa Bi Da" by The Mops.

Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Soaring sounds from the great Jerry Ross – a one man powerhouse on the Philly scene of the 60s – and one of the guys who was really responsible for setting the city's music scene on fire! A Jerry Ross tune is always marked by an upbeat, positive sort of vibe – a mode that works equally well on soul, rock, or pop – all of which are featured here – although even the latter two styles seem to have a bit more of a soul vibe than you might expect, as Ross was something of a blue-eyed maestro with a tune! The collection is long overdue – as Jerry's one of those guys who had a big impact at the time, but maybe wasn't as out there in the spotlight as some of his contemporaries – often just content to make magic from the other side of the studio on great tunes like these. CD features 24 cuts in all – all with detailed notes on each song – and tracks include "Love Love Love" by Bobby Hebb, "The 81" by Candy & The Kisses, "You Better Believe It Baby" by Chubby Checker, "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" by Dee Dee Warwick, "Some Kinda Magic" by Jerry Butler, "Together" by The Modern Ink Spots, "Eeny Meeny" by The Showstoppers, "He's No Ordinary Guy" by Dee Dee Sharp, "You Gave Me Somebody To Love" by The Sidekicks, "Daylight Savin Time" by Sandy Edmonds, "These Will Be The Good Old Days" by The Dreamlovers, "Gonna Be A Big Thing" by The Yum Yums, "Help Yourself" by Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, "I've Got Mine You Better Get Yours" by The Sapphires, and "You Don't Know What You Got" by Willie Hobbs.

Killer cuts from a label that really had its ear to the ground – the young Starday/Dixie label, run by the team of Pappy Daily and Don Pierce – both of whom were becoming a powerhouse force in country music, but could also pick some great rockabilly too! Although the imprint was based in Texas, it handled custom pressings for artists from all around the country – and this collection brings together some real gems that came to the label that way – tracks from the mid-Atlantic and different points in the south – all by young artists who were really on fire with boundless energy and new ideas! There's a nice current of hillbilly in the rockabilly styles here – similar to some of the other Texas or Arkansas productions of the period – and titles include "Got Another Baby" by Lucky Wray, "Rock N Roll Boogie" by Orella & Norella Myers, "Baby I'll Never Let You Go" by The Love Brothers, "The Cats Were Jumpin" by John Worthan, "Dancing To The Rhythm Of A Rock N Roll Band" by Eddie Seacrest & The Rolling Rockets, "I Want My Baby" by Billy Match & The Starfires, "Honky Tonk Stomp" by Hal Payne, "Coffee Baby" by Alton Guyon, "Hot Dog" by Corky Jones, "Why Did You Lie To Me" by Lattie Moore, "You're Gonna Reap What You Sow" by Ray Strong, and the cuts "My Life's Ambition", "Move Around, and "Careful Baby" by Joe Poovey & The Royal Dukes.

RPM (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare rockers from the earliest days of the French scene – work that's often much more tied to American styles than French material from a few years later – but in a really great way that hangs onto all the best raw and rockabilly modes of the late 50s! Lyrics are often in French, and most tracks are original – but there's definitely a strong current of influence from Sun Records and other points south in the use of thumping acoustic bass, skittish small drum kits, and fast-riffing guitar – all to accompany the wonderful vocals in the lead. The track list is great, with 22 numbers that go way past early French rock hits – and titles include "Oncle John" by El Toro Et Les Cyclones, "Ils Croient A Leur Danse" by Gelou, "Mon Mari C'Est Frankenstein" by Nicole Paquin, "Rock A Billy" by Les 6 Trognes, "Rock Rock" by Charles Verstaete, "39 De Fievre" by Gabriel Dalar, "Gong Gong" by Danyel Gerard, "Le Rhythme Du Rock" by Jackie Seven, "Twist A Saint Tropez" by Les Chats Sauvages, and "Hello Josephine" by Les Daltons.

Numero, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The influence of the Byrds, Gram Parsons, and Flying Burrito Brothers knew no bounds back in the day – as you'll hear on this wonderful collection of underground recordings that followed very strongly in their lead! If you think alt-country's only a recent invention, then think again – because way back at the end of the 60s, folks were already starting to come up with their own variant of the sounds of Nashville and Bakersfield – music that's often a bit more gut-wrenching than the mainstream, and which often has those currents of sadness and longing that we love especially strongly in Parsons' records. As usual with Numero, the presentation is wonderful – a special sort of package that features images of all the rare records included, and notes on each individual artist – alongside a set list that includes "Lonesome City" by Black Canyon Gang, "Baby's Back" by Kenny Knight, "To See Her Smile" by Arrogance, "Travelin" by Jimmy Carter & Dallas County Green, "And I Didn't Want You" by Mistress Mary, "Lilly Of The Valley" by Dan Pavlides, "You Can't Make It Alone" by Plain Jane, "Spirit Of The Golden Juice" by FJ McMahon, and "I Know Her Well" by Sandy Harless.
