VariousWarner Pop Rock Nuggets Vol 1 – Magic Town ... CD
Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... $21.99
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.

Davie Allan & The ArrowsApache '65 ... LP
Tower, 1965. Very Good ... $12.99
The first ever album by the incredible Davie Allan & The Arrows – a great batch of pulpy garage rock instrumentals that shatters every cliche in the book! This set finds the group at it's tightest, melding earlier surf rock & r&b, and even a little bit of Bakersfield honky tonk guitar into a beautiful, much imitatated amalgam of pulpy groovers! Tracks include "Apache '65", "Tee Pee", "Blue Guitar", "Twine Time", "The Rebel (Without A Cause)", "Tomahawk", "Commanche", "Red Roses For A Blue Lady" and more! LP, Vinyl record album

Davie Allan & The ArrowsBlues Theme ... LP
Tower, 1967. Very Good ... $24.99
A rare album from Hollywood studio musicians turned garage rock heroes Davie Allan & The Arrows! This is another of their Nugget-fueling efforts with short, short cuts blazing with fuzzy-as-hell guitars, rumbling drums and thumping bass – rolling along with fluid, thematic lead guitar and a mercilessly propellant garage rock groove! Great stuff from and incredible group that seems to finally be getting its props! Tracks include "Blues Theme", "King Fuzz", "Theme From Thunderball", "William Tell 1967", "Action On The Street", "Theme From The Unknown", "Sorry 'Bout That" and more LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a sticker with, some staining, splitting and stuck on paper due to moisture.)

Davie Allan & The Arrows/The Hands Of TimeWild Angels – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Classic kitschy biker material from Davie Allan and The Arrows – one of the best-ever groups to play on schlocky soundtracks during the 60s! There's lots of guitar and lots of fuzz – and guessing from the photos of the movie, the music was the best thing about it! Toddler Mike Curb put the whole thing together – but the vibe is much more like some of Allan's excellent guitar instrumental albums of the time – apart from the few more standard rock band tracks you'd find in Curb's other productions from the period. Most of the album's instrumental Arrows work – and tracks include "The Chase", "Bongo Party", "Blues Theme", "Theme From Wild Angels", and "The Unknown Rider" – plus the vocal cuts "Theme From The Wild Angels" by The Visitors and "Midnight Rider" by The Hands Of Time.

Amon Duul IIYeti ... CD
Liberty/SPV (Germany), 1970. Used ... $9.99
About as classic as you can get for Amon Duul – a double-length set that virtually defined the sound of prog rock for the 70s! Tracks are long, and mighty jamming – with a strong undercurrent of jazz alongside the heavy drums and guitars – set loose at a level that's much madder than most American work of the time – always threatening to trip itself up at various points, but incredibly on track over the length of the extended package. There's a few improvisational moments, and the whole thing has a fluid feel that even makes us swallow the vocals easily, as they fit right in with the rest of the tripped-out instrumentation. Instruments include 12 string guitar, organ, and some especially nice bongos – and titles include "Burning Sister", "Eye Shaking King", "Yeti Talks To Yogi", "Cerberus", and "Archangel Thunderbird".

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". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

Keren AnnYou're Gonna Get Love ... CD
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime! Keren's also making a big step towards a global market here, too – continuing her trend of singing in English, which is the case throughout the album – which really helps get her captivating tunes and amazing sound to a larger market on this side of the Atlantic – all without losing the breathy charm of her previous French language vocals. The tunes have this moody vibe, almost in a hip early 70s singer/songwriter mode – and backing instrumentation that really follows suit. Titles include "Again & Again", "you Knew Me Then", "Bring Back", "The Separated Twin", "You Have It All To Lose", and "The River That Swallows All The Rivers". (French, Rock) CD

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".

ArenaArena (180 gram pressing) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Crystal Clear/Roundtable (Australia), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 31.99
A heady set of jazz from the Australian scene of the 70s – a bit funky jazz, a bit harder jamming – and a record that's got a lot more edge than its contemporaries from the European scene! Ted White plays tremendous flute and alto sax here – the latter with a sharply spiritual energy that's quite unexpected, and which gives the record a lot more soul than the usual prog-influenced fusion date of the time – a quality that's even quite different than some of the other Australian jazz material of the 70s – which, when electrified, didn't always hold onto the sharpness of its acoustic properties. Keyboards are from Peter Jones, who's nicely restrained, but makes some great contributions – and the rest of the group features Charlie Gould on guitar, Bob Arrowsmith on bass, and Graham Morgan on percussion and drums. Titles include "Turkish Defunked", "Keith's Mood", "Scrichell Cat", "Journey In Three's", "Scope", "Duke", and "The Long One". (Jazz, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Ginny ArnellMeet Ginny Arnell (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
Dreamy 60s pop from Ginny Arnell – a sweet-voiced singer working in a very echoey space! There's a nicely weepy quality to Ginny's music – not in a way that's overly emotive, but which comes from the odd mix of guitar lines, bubbling bass, and heavy echo used to record the music – all with qualities that start feeling sad long before Arnell even sings a word of the lyrics – and which is almost a female equivalent to the best blue modes of Bobby Vinton's work of the same time! Arrangements are by a variety of talents – including Bill McElhieny, Al Gorgoni, and Ray Stevens – but there's a nicely unified feel to the set, thanks to the strong production on the album from Jim Vienneau – clearly an under-acknowledged genius of 60s pop. Titles include "Dumbhead", "I Wish I Knew What Dress To Wear", "I'm So Afraid Of Loving You", "He's My Little Devil", "This Is Mine", "You Pulled A Fast One", "I Don't Want You This Way", and "This Is Mine". CD features 6 bonus tracks too – including "I'm Getting Mad", "Bill Why", "I'm Crying Too", "Trouble's Back In Town", and "Just Like A Boy". (Vocalists, Rock) CD

Maki AsakawaMaki Asakawa ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Haunting music from Japanese singer Maki Asakawa – every bit as smoky and soulful as you might guess from her image on the cover! These tracks are mostly sung in Japanese, but draw a very strong inspiration from American torch sounds of the 40s and 50s – a moody, late nite approach that's got a very universal appeal, even if you can't understand the language – and which is filled with an undeniable sense of melancholy right from the first note! The style is partly jazz, but also moves into some groovier modes of the period too – traces of psych at some points, mod European-styled arrangements at others, and even a few funky currents that come off surprisingly well. The package is wonderful – a great introduction to Maki's most classic music, featuring a well-chosen array of tracks, and nice liner notes by Alan Cummings. Titles include "Blue Spirit Blues", "Govinda", "Nemuru No Ga Kowai", "Uramado", "Kamome", "Gogo", "Hikkoshi", "Konna Funi Sugite Iku No Nara", "Yuki Ga Furu", and "Zenkamono Na Christmas".

✨✧ AssociationAnd Then Along Comes The Association ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The first full length album recorded by the legendary Association – a classic bit of Sunshine Pop that would forever change the sound of the 60s! Although familiar, the album's got an amazing depth that still never fails to surprise today – odd production twists and turns, courtesy of a young Curt Boettcher; personally youthful harmonies that slip as often as they soar; and just the right touches of flower power to move the group away from their folkie roots into the new sun of a changing decade! The hits "Along Comes Mary" and "Cherish" are almost worth the price of admission – but lesser-known cuts are even better, and show a wealth of great work penned by members of the group! Other titles include "Standing Still", "Message Of Our Love", "Changes", "I'll Be Your Man", "Blistered", "Round Again", "Remember" and "Enter The Young". LP, Vinyl record album

AssociationInsight Out ... LP
Warner, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Fantastic dreamy pop! Despite the fact that this one yielded the super-huge hits "Windy" and "Never My Love", the album's also filled with great 60s pop tunes that you've probably never heard before – all as fantastically well-crafted and delicately strung-out as the big hits. The Association were truly one of the greatest 60s pop harmony groups to come out of the LA scene – and even a big hit album like this is the kind of gem that you'd spend years digging through rare vinyl to hope to find! Other titles include "Happiness Is", "On A Quiet Night", "We Love Us", "Reputation", and "Requiem For The Masses". LP, Vinyl record album

David Axelrod/Cannonball AdderleyMessiah ... LP
RCA, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
David Axelrod takes on Handel's Messiah – and the result is an amazingly complex set of music – very similar to his earlier albums on Capitol Records, and his Warner work with the Electric Prunes! If you love the Axe, you'll find plenty to love here – spare, dark orchestrations, often with a subtle hint of funk in the rhythms, some jazzy flourishes, and this bold sense of studio majesty that marks Axelrod as one of the most inventive producers of his time! The sound's one that gave birth to a whole generation of hip hoppers and beatheads – and the proceedings are conducted by Cannonball Adderley, with a feel that's similar to other Adderley/Axelrod high-concept sets – like Soul Of The Bible or Soul Zodiac. Titles include "Overture", "Worthy Is the Lamb", "Behold Recitative", "Comfort Ye My People", and "And The Angel Said Unto Them". (Jazz, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Rhino/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A first ever release of this killer B-52s live set – recorded in 1979, shortly after the release of their first record – opening for the Talking Heads in Boston! The band is in peak early form here, really throwing a hell of a great party on stage, with a set that's heavy on classics from first and second albums, the latter of which wouldn't even be released until the following year! There's a nicely raw feel to the record – a reminder that although they broke to the mainstream on a big label, these guys came out of the late 70s indie underground – working here with the kind of offbeat energy that made them a standout act both in their hometown of Athens – and in the New York scene where they really made their mark. Titles include "52 Girls", "606-0842", "Devil In My Car", "Dance This Mess Around", "Rock Lobster", and "Strobe Light". CD

Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $15.99
A group so great and so groovy, they ended up having a huge influence on the early sound of hip hop – thanks to a wonderfully funky sound at the core of their progressive rock groove! Babe Ruth have this rhythmic impulse that's really amazing – a way of working bass, drums, and percussion together with qualities that go way past just prog rock noodling – and have this focus that really fits the lead vocals and guitar of Alan Shacklock, who also handled all the arrangements for this mighty debut too! Titles include their classic cut "The Mexican" – a famous sample cut from way back, with nice use of acoustic guitar and a Morricone riff too – plus versions of Zappa's "King Kong" and Jesse Winchester's "Black Dog" – and the originals "Wells Fargo", "The Runaways", and "Joker".

The landmark first album from The Band – and along with the follow-up, it's among the greatest records of its time – which is all the more astounding given how independent of late 60s trends it is! Each member of The Band brings such inimitable textures – Garth Hudson's imposing organ grooves, Richard Manuel's aching tenor vocals, Rick Danko's voice and distinctive bass lines, Levon Helm's behind-the-beat drumming and the country wisdom of his voice, Robertson's guitar mastery – this really was THE Band. Includes "Tears Of Rage", "In A Station", "The Weight", "Long Black Veil", "Chest Fever", "Lonesome Suzie", "This Wheels On Fire", "I Shall Be Released" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
