VariousButtons – Starter Kit (aka Yellow Pills) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 22.98
A reimagined version of the legendary Yellow Pills compilation on Numero – 20 songs from the original compilation, plus two bonus tracks, new liner notes, and lots of cool sleeve scans, photos, and more! Forget everything you know about rock music in the late 70s – all the punk rock and new wave that's been immortalized over the years – and get ready to discover a whole new world of power pop! At the time, the power pop underground was as important to some ears as the artier and angrier work coming out of the east coast and UK – and the power pop world was one that could co-exist a bit more peacefully with mainstream rock, while still offering a great opportunity for bands on various local scenes. The work here has echoes of more famous acts of the time – like The Cars, The Kings, or The Knack – but it's also got a bit more of a home-grown, punk rock edge – one that comes through beautifully in the guitar parts, vocals, and unabashed hooks of the tunes. The set's a follow-up to the original Yellow Pills set by zine publisher Jordan Oakes – and it delves deeper than even that one, with a real focus on work from the end of the 70s, and acts that never had great chart success overall. Titles include "High School" by Tommy Rock, "She's Hi Fi" by The Trend, "There Goes My Heart Again" by The Kids, "Not My Girl Anymore" by The Bats, "All I Want" by The Colors, "Domestic/Imported" by The Toms, "Sunshine USA" by Randy Winburn, "One In A Million" by Luxury, "She's The Girl" by The Tweeds, "Rave It Up" by Colors, and "Hey Little Girl" by The Kids.

✨✧ AirPremiers Symptomes (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Parlophone, 1998. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
5 early tracks of Air's spacey stripped-down approach to new grooves, that hints at a very lounge-y feel, without ever diving into it headlong, with a nod to ethereal past sounds, all the while breaking new groupd of their own! Haunting, beautiful, spare, and without any of the cliches that you might find in many of the group's that followed in the wake of Portishead and the Headz phenomenon: "Modular Mix", "Casanova 70", "Les Professionnels", "J'Ai Dormi Sous L'Eau", "Le Soleil Est Pres De Mo". Plus, it's packaged in a very cool die-cut cover! LP, Vinyl record album

AirTalkie Walkie (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Atmospheric electronic pop from Air – one that really steps up the spacier avant pop touches, after some of more ethereal, almost symphonic touches on both their proper albums and soundtrack work in the preceding few years. Lots of trippy electronic touches on this one, but still with the delicate vocals and layered bits of guitar and other strings, for a nice blend of sounds. Solid work from the always adventurous duo. Includes "Venus", "Cherry Blossom Girl", "Run", "Universal Traveler", "Mike Mills", "Surfing On A Rocker", "Another Day", "Alpha Beta Gaga", "Biological" and "Alone In Kyoto". LP, Vinyl record album

Alan BownStretching Out (with bonus track) ... CD
Island/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $5.99
A creepy cover, but a surprisingly charming little record – one that has The Alan Bown jamming nicely with lead vocals from Gordon Neville! Mel Collins handles production this time around, and he brings in some of the more lyrical touches that you'd hear on some of his better-known projects from the same time – almost a gentle sense of majesty amidst the more jazz and blues-influenced elements in the group's music. John Anthony Helliwell plays saxes, Bown is on guitar, and Jeff Bannister handles keyboards – on titles that include "The Messenger", "Find A Melody", "Up Above My Hobby Horse's Head", "Turning Point", and "Stretching Out". CD also features the bonus track "Thru The Night". CD

✨✧ Allman BrothersBrothers & Sisters ... LP
Capricorn, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
The Allman Brothers at their best – and a key 70s set that may well have the group working at their peak! All their best southern roots are firmly tied together here – not just the country-touched approach to rock that was the group's calling card, but also their ties to some of the Georgia soul scene as well – an element that really surfaces in some of the album's piano lines and rhythms, which really help underscore the depth of the tunes – and give the group a solid footing that's stronger than some of their more cliched contemporaries. These tunes hold up wonderfully over the years – and have a visionary approach that almost sparkles even more strongly here in the 21st Century than when we first started digging their sounds on radio back in the 70s. Titles include "Southbound", "Jessica", "Pony Boy", "Wasted Words", "Ramblin Man", "Come & Go Blues", and "Jelly Jelly". LP, Vinyl record album

Amboy DukesMigration ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really great moment for the young Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes – and a record that's so confident in its greatness, it begins the proceedings with a long instrumental, guitar-heavy jam – instead of any vocals! The Nuge really kicks it large on that cut – "Migration" – then things really heat up as the Dukes bring their pure power into play – that steamroller approach that made them a key force in moving things from psych to hard rock with records like this – although the record still has a few nice trippy touches too! Titles include "Good Natured Emma", "Loaded For Bear", "Migration", "For His Namesake", "Prodigal Man", and "Curb Your Elephant". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AntenaCamino Del Sol ... LP
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 22.99
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ApartmentsEvening Visits (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Rough Trade/Captured Tracks, 1985. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
An overlooked 80s pop masterpiece – the first full album from The Apartments, one of the most blue-tinged groups of the decade! Ex-Go Between Peter Milton Walsh heads the group, which is a showcase for his wonderfully-penned songs – unique little tracks that show his Australian roots, but which also share links with some of the smartest UK pop of the period – no surprise, given the original release of the record on Rough Trade. There's a subtle genius here, but one that grabs you right away – given Walsh's distinct vocals, and the album's blend of jangle pop guitars with sadder elements like cello and flugelhorn, which help push things slightly towards 4AD territory, but without any goth. The whole thing's wonderful – one of those records we've loved for decades, from the moment we first heard it – and titles include "Sunset Hotel", "Mr Somewhere", "All The Birthdays", "Great Fool", "Speechless With Tuesday", "Cannot Tell The Days Apart", and "Lazarus Lazarus". Beautiful double-length package features almost a whole extra album – early singles, demos, and more – with tracks that include "All You Wanted", "Fever Elsewhere", "Refugee", "Help", and "Nobody Like You".

Aphrodite's ChildEnd Of The World ... LP
Mercury (France), 1968. Very Good ... $38.99
A brilliant criss-crossing of pop modes in late 60s Europe – and the first album from Greek rock supergroup Aphrodite's Child! Although later work by the trio was a fair bit more heady, the approach here is more focused psychedelic pop – done in styles that echo strongly with some of the late 60s styles coming out of the Parisian scene, which is where the group were working at the time. Lyrics, though, are sung mostly in English – which gives the record a bit of a Brit psychedelic feel – but there's some other elements here that are also strongly the group's own. A young Demi Roussos sings lead vocals and plays guitar, and new age maestro Vangelis plays organ and percussion with a sound that's quite different than any of his later work! Titles include "End Of The World", "Day Of The Fool", "Valley Of Sadness", "Rain & Tears", "Mister Thomas", "You Always Stand In My Way", and "The Shepherd & The Moon". CD also features some great bonus tracks too – including "Plastics Nevermore", "The Other People", "Magic Mirror", "I Want To Live", and "Lontano Dagli Occhi". LP, Vinyl record album
(French pressing – seems to be from the 70s.)

ApoteosiApoteosi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A really unusual set from the Italian scene of the 70s – a record that still has some of the proggish traces of the underground at the time, but which also is clearly reaching out for new levels of expression too! There's definitely a lot of fusion in the mix – these long passages that have a nicely jamming jazzy vibe, especially on guitar and keyboard lines – almost with some of the spacey touches you'd find in the best American fusion of the period, especially the sort that was itself influenced by prog. There's a sweet female singer who brings in a slightly soulful vibe at one point, but the main focus of the record is instrumental – and titles include "Embrion", "Prima Realta", "Attesa", "Il Grande Disumano", and "Frammentaria Rivolta". LP, Vinyl record album

Association/Charles FoxGoodbye Columbus – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, 1969. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A groovy groovy soundtrack that contains one of the Association's greatest songs! "Goodbye Columbus" may not be as famous as some of their bigger hits – but we love it to death, and it's the kind of catchy groover they'll find us singing in the coffin long after we've passed away! The soundtrack features the vocal version of the track – as well as some other vocal numbers like "It's Gotta Be Real" and "So Kind To Me". Plus, the soundtrack's also got some excellent instrumental numbers that are in the best spirit of the group's music – with loads of dreamy arrangements and light lilting pop melodies. Tunes include "Love Has A Way", "A Moment To Share", "A Time For Love", and "How Will I Know You?". LP, Vinyl record album

BadfingerStraight Up ... LP
Apple, 1971. Sealed ... $99.99
Badfinger's early 70s win streak continues on Straight Up – a straight up classic set of tuneful 70s rock with big emotions and catchy songs – one that keeps just enough grit underneath those killer melodies! Titles include "Take It All", "Bably Blue", "Name Of The Game", "Perfection", "It's Over", "Sometimes" and more. This might be the group's most consistent batch of songs to date, and it's essential early 70s rock for sure. LP, Vinyl record album

Banana Splits/BeaglesWe're The Banana Splits/Here Come The Beagles ... CD
Hollywood, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Way more than just another kiddie soundtrack – or an album for a childish TV show – as the set's a surprisingly groovy little record, almost Sunshine Pop in its best moments! We're not sure about the nature of the players or the singers – but arranger Jack Eskew put the whole thing together with a bouncy, bubbly groove that rivals the best pop-psych work of the late 60s on labels like Kapp or Uni – right down to the perfect combination of fuzzy guitars and organ in the instrumentation. Titles include "This Spot", "I'm Gonna Find A Cave", "We're The Banana Splits", "In New Orleans", "Toy Piano Medley", "Don't Go Away Go Go Girl", and the classic "Tra La La Song". CD also features bonus Splits songs – "The Very First Kid On My Block", "The Beautiful Calliope", "Let Me Remember You Smiling", and "Soul". The CD also features the album Here Comes The Beagles – from a very Splits-like show that features another group of singing animals! The Beagles aren't The Beatles, but they definitely have a strong Brit Invasion feel in their music – a UK way with a melody that's mixed with a few sunny Cali pop touches too. Very 60s, very groovy, and way better than just a kiddie record – with tunes that include "What More Can I Do", "Be The Captain", "I Wanna Capture You", "Indian Love Dance", and "You Satisfy". CD

BandidoBandido (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Barnyard (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A killer funky rock group from early 70s Mexico – one that plays with some sweet jazzy touches too! The sound here is a bit like the jazz rock of the US and UK scenes – with soulful lyrics that really find a nice home amidst the jamming guitars, brassy horns, and funky rhythms at the bottom! And in fact, there's a familiarity to some of the tunes – a groove that makes you say "dang, where have I heard this one before" – but only because the quality level of the album's so high, these cuts should have been bigger on the global scene! Titles include the groovy "Pobre Ecologo", which has some nice organ – plus "Libertad Ahora", "Dama De Invierno", "Un Nuevo Dia", "Manana", and "Exhortacion". LP, Vinyl record album

Syd BarrettBarrett (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Harvest/Parlophone, 1970. Sealed (reissue)... $19.99
A sublime second solo effort from Syd Barrett – and maybe his most perfectly-formed album ever! There's a sinister balance to the record right from the start – a gentle approach to the offbeat themes that is almost more unsettling than if the matter was undertaken more forcefully – weird little bits just tossed off by Syd as if they're really the ramblings of the madman promised on the cover of his first LP – almost with a deadpan quality that makes the whole thing even more unsettling with repeated listenings! Instrumentation is relatively lean – almost a folksy mix of acoustic guitar, electric, sullen bass, and some haunting keyboards – all as if someone picked apart Pink Floyd, then started to construct a rough sketch from the parts that lay scattered on the floor. The album's had an influence from psych through punk and many years beyond – and titles include "Baby Lemonade", "Gigolo Aunt", "Wolfpack", "Effervescing Elephant", "Winde & Dined", "Rats", and "It Is Obvious". LP, Vinyl record album

Syd BarrettOpel (2LP 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Harvest/EMI/Simply Vinyl, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A Syd Barrett treasure trove – and an essential compilation of unreleased work that's a much-needed companion to Barrett's classic albums for EMI! The material here is all from the years 1968 to 1970 – tracks recorded before, during, and around the sessions that later became The Madcap Laughs and Barrett – but which often also show a wider-ranging side of Syd's talents, especially on the few demo recordings – which offer an even more personal glimpse of the artist trying to find his way. Instrumentation is a bit more acoustic than on Barrett's full albums, but even the acoustic guitar is played with these dark tones that have the same sinister quality as the chords he brought to Pink Floyd – maybe even more striking here without any fuzz, as they resonate alongside Syd's offbeat lyrics. Titles include "Rats", "Golden Hair", "Opel", "Clowns & Jugglers", "Birdie Hop", "Let's Spilt", and "Swan Lee". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysSmiley Smile (Japanese paper sleeve edition – mono mix) ... CD
Brother/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $23.99
The slimmed-down, single LP effort that Capitol issued after the collapse of the legendary Smile album – and a pretty sublime set nonetheless! Sure, some might argue that you can't enjoy Brian Wilson's genius until you've listened to 20 bootlegs of the sessions with dozens of takes on the tunes – but honestly, this slim little set is more than enough to prove to us that the man's a genius – and it's filled with really wonderful tunes that still stand as some of the most incredible moments in 60s pop! Production is amazing, vocals are wonderful, and the quick changes of theme and setting really keep things interesting – all without making us feel like we're getting hit over the head with some cheap gimmicks. Titles include "Vegetables", "Heroes & Villains", "Fall", "Little Pad", "With Me Tonight", and "Wind Chimes". CD

Parlophone (UK), 1965. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A great little record that's kind of a prequel for Rubber Soul – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that we always forget about, until we drop the needle – the revel in its sweet blend of Beatles modes on tracks that include "Help", "The Night Before", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Yesterday", "Act Naturally", "It's Only Love", "Ticket To Ride", and "I Need You".

Capitol, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess! The set's incredibly strong throughout – filled with some of the new post-Peppers ideas explored by the group, yet also with some catchier numbers too – great sing-songy tracks that undoubtedly were a big mainstream influence to the world of late 60s psych! Titles include "Blue Jay Way", "The Fool On The Hill", "Flying", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Penny Lane", and "Baby You're A Rich Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with an american flag and EAS-80569 cat #. Cover has light wear and waviness from moisture throughout.)

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades! Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "She's Leaving Home", "Lovely Rita", "When I'm Sixty Four", "A Day In The Life", and "Fixing A Hole".

BedheadTransaction De Novo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1998. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
The last full length transaction from slowcore pioneers and TX heroes Bedhead – one of the more influential indie rock bands of the 90s, which is all the more amazing given that they were largely ignored outside of a small, devoted fanbase! The quiet, but tense dynamic established on their first 2 albums continues here, with subtle builds in tension perfectly captured by Steve Albini's direct, no frills engineering. Titles include "Exhume", "More Than Ever", "Parade", "Half-Thought", "Forgetting", "Lepidoptera", "Psychosmatica" and "The Present". LP, Vinyl record album
