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.

Roir, 1981. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Seminal record from one of the most important hardcore bands to walk the earth – and DC underground classic that hit the scene like a lightning bolt to the White House – that cover art speaks the truth! 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".

Franco BattiatoSulle Corde Di Aries ... LP
Superior Viaduct, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About October 20, 2017
A key turning point in the career of Italian modernist Franco Battiato – as he leaves behind the straighter progressive format of his first two albums, and moves into a mode that's much more experimental! The album features four long compositions – all of which show Battiato developing strongly as a composer – mixing together voice, electronics, prepared piano, and lots of heavy processing. The sound isn't as spare as on some of his later albums, but the overall sound is incredible – proof that he was really breaking into new territory! Titles include "Aries", "Sequenze E Frequenze", "Aria Di Rivoluzione", and "Da Oriente ad Occidente". (Out Sound, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

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.

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
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 – Les Punks – The French Connection – First Years Of Punk 1977 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A crucial look at the French punk scene in the late 70s – music that never got the global circulation as work from the US and UK – most likely because the difference in language on some of these tracks! However, that quality shouldn't put you off – because even if you can't understand the words, you'll definitely pick up on the energy – as these acts are a natural for the new sounds of the time – and find a way of bringing all the playful sneer and swagger of French rock from the 60s into play with a much sharper edge! If we had to choose, we'd say the music is maybe more like New York punk than the sound of London – especially in the way that some of these acts are very open to other sounds and influences, while still serving up a song with a short sharp shock. Titles include "Paris Maquis" by Metal Urbain, "Photo Coleur" by A3 Dans Les WC, "Planet Comme Un Prive" by Aslpalt Jungle, "Sally" by Gazoline, "Sweet Marilyn" by Metal Boys, "Rien A Dire" by Marie Et Les Garcons, "Wolf City Blues" by Angel Face, "Mind" by Kas Product, "Broken Windows" by Warm Gun, "Electrifie" by Calcinator, "I Don't Wanna Be A Rich" by Guilty Razors, and "Euthenasie" by Les Olivensteins.

✨✧ VariousToujours Chic – More French Girl Singers Of The 1960s ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible female pop from 60s France – not weepy ballads or old school Paris numbers, but the kind of hip-snapping, all-groovy material that made the 60s French scene so great! Loads of these tracks are new to our ears (and we love French grooves a lot!) – and this volume of the series seems to dig even deeper than before – through a range of rare 7" EP material and singles, to come up with some killer tracks that will move way beyond the bigger cuts you might know from Francoise Hardy or Brigitte Bardot. The production and instrumentation is superb throughout – often with these funky currents that make these tracks feel years ahead of their time – and as usual with Ace, the whole presentation is great – from ultra-clear sound through full notes on the music too. Titles include "Rouge Rouge" by Christie Laume, "Pour La Gloire" by Annie Philippe, "Demain" by Zouzou, "Cours Si Tu As Peur" by Fabienne, "A La Fin De La Soiree" by Sheila, "Cette Nuit" by Pussycat, "Angel Of Sin" by Charlotte Walters, "Les Prisons De Sa Majeste" by Delphine, and "Le Nenuphar" by Stone.

✨✧ VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive sounds from Columbia Records – a smoking set of rockabilly numbers that the legendary label cut during a time when it was making most of its money selling mainstream pop, classical music, and Broadway showtunes albums! Yet beneath all that big-cash production, Columbia found the time to get some amazing records cut in the studio – searing tracks that still bristle with plenty of power and raw energy all these many years later – and which easily match the fire and frenzy of singles you'd hear from some of the more obscure indies that are always prized by collectors of early rock singles! Some artists are Columbia country singers, stepping out for much more gritty action on cuts like these – others are more obscure rock acts that hit the label's roster far from the clean pop of Mitch Miller – and the CD features 25 gems that include "Whistle Bait" by Larry Collins, "Dig Boy Dig" by Freddie Hart, "Big Fool" by Ronnie Self, "I Got A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Romp Stompin Boogie" by Jaycee Hill, "Good Rockin Baby" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Mama Blues" by Marty Robbins, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "Ah Poor Little Baby" by Billy Crash Craddock, "Hoy Hoy" by Collins Kids, "Everybody's Rockin" by Werly Fairburn, "Rawhide" by Link Wray, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Ugly & Slouchy" by Maddox Brothers.

Amos KeyFirst Key ... CD
Interchord/Long Hair (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
A pretty sharp trio with incredible energy – a German prog group of the early 70s, but one who've got a hell of a lot of dexterity – so much so, they may well rival the greatness of big UK acts like ELP or Yes! The keyboards are all handled by Thomas Molin, who's got this ability to move as fast as the drums and bass – spinning out flowing lines of color, but also stopping on a dime and turning in another new direction quickly – as do the other two members of the group, with fantastic instrumental interplay throughout. The album's got vocals, mostly in English – but the instrumentation is what really leaves us breathless – on titles that include "Shoebread", "Got The Feelin", "Escape", "Important Matter", "First Key", and "Dragon's Walk".

Ed AskewImperfiction ... LP
Galactic Zoo Disk/Drag City, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
Murky folk music made with a portable 2 track cassette recorder, a mic, a kit harpsichord, an acoustic guitar by one heck of a dizzyingly creative figure! It's both strange and effective, with one memorable tune after another. The songs are ones that Askew wrote in the preceding handful of years, ones he knew pretty deep down by this point but were never before recorded, and it's the kind of crackling low fi effort that's a major precurssor to indie folk to come – whether the late comers ever heard of Askew or not! Includes "Boy With A Hat", "Hitchhiking", "Deep Water", "At Home In The Factory", "Tom", "House Of Embers", "Art And Life", "Buddha Smiles" and "This Is The End".

The first Babes In Toyland LP - noisier and stranger than their major label efforts, which is a heck of a statement given how gnarly the Fontanelle record turned out! Babes never really got the props they deserve for help paving the way for noise rock to pummel it's way to the mainstream in the early 90s – especially for women in the scene – and Spanking Machine is the most underappreciated album in an underapperciated run all together.

A weird set of sitar and bongos backed sing-speak about gurus, devil gods, leprechauns, elves, opium, the wind, hippie boys and other oddball psychedelia enhanced storytelling from Kali,The Gypsy Star Child! We don't know a thing about Kali – she has a cute, girly-girl, Anytown, USA voice, but the hippie fantasy, pseudo spiritual storytelling is weird, yet genuinely committed – with droning, Eastern-tinged psych backdrops. Includes "A Game Called Who Am I", "Cosmic Remembrance", "A Cosmic Telephone Call", "From The Angel Liesle & The Buddha" and "How Can I Tell My Guru?" LP, Vinyl record album

JB BanfiGalaxy My Dear (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Red/Wah Wah (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
JB Banfi gets a big nod from Klaus Schulze on the back cover of this rare 70s set – and for good reason, too – as the music's very much in the best analogue electronic work that Schulze himself helped to pioneer at the time – even though Klaus claims that Banfi is an even better composer! The album's served up from a host of electronic sources – a range of moog synths, Arp, Farfisa, Logan string ensemble, Roland echo chamber, Eventide Clockworks phaser, and other sources – all used in ways by Banfi that are soaring and spacious, but never sleepy – always with this slightly upbeat vibe and sense of color that was maybe one of the differences between the 70s French electronic scene and the German one. Titles include "Paradox Streams", "Audio Emotion", "Gang", and "Goodbye My Little Star". LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Berry with Steve MillerLive At The Fillmore Auditorium (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $29.99
The cover's a bit trippy, but the sound is anything but – and instead stands as a strong tribute to the way the early work of Chuck Berry continued to influence a generation of rockers well through the 60s! Berry's the frontman, and gets plenty of chance to sing and sear on guitar – and the backing band is actually the combo of a young Steve Miller – soon to explode in fame of his own, but here very respectful to Chuck! Wally Heider recorded the set – and it's definitely one of the headier Chuck Berry moments of the 60s – but mostly because the live setting allows things to get a bit looser, and even grittier. Miller plays guitar, and Jim Peterman turns in lots of great work on organ and electric piano – and titles include "Flying Home", "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl", "CC Rider", "Feelin It", "Wee Baby Blues", "Hoochie Coochie Man", and "Driftin Blues". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "Reelin & Rockin", "Worried Life Blues", and "Bring Another Drink". (Soul, Rock) CD

More of a journey than just a straight record – as this incredible 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 material 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! Volume 1 includes demo versions of "Like St. Joan (Kanga Roo), "Lovely Day", "Downs", "Femme Fatale", "Thank You Friends", "Jesus Christ", "Take Care", "Nighttime" and more, plus Alex & Lesa duo takes on "I'm So Tired" and "That's All It Took", plus "Dream Lover (Dickinson Rough Mix)", "Pre-Downs", "Baby Strange", "Don't Worry Baby", "I'm In Love With A Girl" and more. 24 tracks on 2LPs!

✨✧ VariousMystic Males 2 – Tripped Out Troubadours From 1966 to 1969 ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really mad music from this weird little series – a set of pop tracks from the end of the 60s, but all done with these weird psych and spiritual touches – definitely the "mystic males" promised in the title! The sound here isn't just that of mainstream pop-psych – and instead really reflects the deeper underground currents going on in the American scene at the time – on these small label singles that effortlessly swirl the vocals with trippy organ lines, fuzzy guitar, sparkling keyboards, and lots of cool twists and turns on the percussion and other acoustic instrumentation – often abstracted a bit in the production! Themes aren't that different from the mainstream, but also have an oddly eerie feel too – and titles include "London Bound" by Ed Powers, "Flower Song" by Shalynn, "Sometime Girl" by Gerry Pond, "I'm A Deeper Blue" by John Dunn, "How Much Do I Love You" by Darrius, "Four Robins Singing" by Tyroee Forrest, "Daydream" by Paul Stoop, and "Before She Goes" by Richard Coronado.

✨✧ VariousRhythm On The Radio – Oval Records Singles 1974 to 1987 ... CD
Oval/Ace (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual labels on the British scene at the end of the 70s – a small indie that first began by issuing sounds from the US, but which then went onto have a strong role in the growing new wave and Brit pop scene of the time – before moving into world music in their later years! The mix of cuts here is quite surprising at first, but soon falls into a cohesive groove – especially when Oval Records hit that point when they were becoming the farm team for acts that would break later on bigger labels – including a few entries here that might come as a real surprise! The package is very well done – the usual Ace Records sensitivity to the history behind the music – and given that Oval Records titles never got much circulation on our side of the Atlantic, the whole thing's a real revelation to American listeners like us. Titles include "Lucky Number" by Lene Lovich, "One Heart One Song" by Pete Fowler, "The Lull" by Reluctant Stereotypes, "Tell That Girl To Shut Up" by Holly & The Italians, "Rhythm On The Radio" by ABC, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Woodhead Monroe, "Don't Depend On Me" by Direct Drive, "We'll Be Together" by Bosca, "Highlife Time" by George Darko, "The Jack That House Built" by Jack N Chill, "C'Est La Danse" by African Connexion, "Brickyard Blues" by Helen Shapiro, "I'm On A Rocket" by Harry Kakoulli, "English Guns" by Airstrip 1, "Don't Be Mistaken" by First Light, and "Hippy Street" by Local Heroes SW9.

✨✧ VariousRiot City – Rocking Northwest Instrumentals ... CD
Jerden/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There must have been something in the water up in the Pacific Northwest back in the 60s – because for some reason, that tiny corner of America was home to a hell of a lot of rocking little combos – a good deal of whom are featured on this set! These guys are so great, they don't need any vocals at all – as most of these Northwest groups manage to say as much with a guitar line, sax solo, or keyboard part as other groups would with a vocal – and we might even say that the lack of lyrics gives these cuts even more of an edge than some of their contemporaries, as there's no outdated lyrical references or silly chorus parts – just searing instrumentation all the way through, played by some hot-blooded young musicians. All cuts come from the Jerden label – although some were never issued back in the day – and the collection features great notes by 60s indie rock historian Alec Palao, who also put the whole thing together. Titles include "Riot City" by Rocky & His Friends, "Sticky" by James Henry & The Olympics, "David's Mood" by Dave Lewis, "Mr Meadowlands" by The Chessmen, "Hitch Hiking Home" by Johnny & The Velvetones, "Purple Peanuts" by The Beachcombers, "Black Cat" by The Checkers, "Excelsior" by The Adventurers, "Driving Home" by Doug Robertson & The Good Guys, and "Banzai Pipeline" by Danny & The Seniors.
