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.

✨✧ AgincourtFly Away ... CD
Acme Gramophone/Lion (UK), 1970. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful blend of folk and psychedelia – carried off with a bit of a Sunshine Pop twist as well! The recording's got a homespun sort of feel – one that's a lot less polished than other efforts like this of the time, in a way that really furthers the charming nature of the tunes. There's clearly elements of bigger, more established acts filtering through the music – but the end result is deeply personal and homespun. John Ferdinando and Peter Howe sing in a harmony-based style on some of the best tracks – more Sunshine than folk, despite the acoustic guitars on the set – and the lovely Lee Menelaus also delivers some great vocals too, further sweetening up the sound! Many tunes have a catchy, jingly-jangly quality – a bit like post-folk work from the west coast of the late 60s – and titles include "Mirabella", "All My Life", "Going Home", "Joy In The Finding", "Get Together", "When I Awoke", and "Lisa". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Going Home (alt)" and "Though I May Be Dreaming (stereo)" – plus a well-done booklet, filled with plenty of notes! CD

Agitation FreeMalesch ... CD
Spalax (Switzerland), 1972. Used ... $11.99
A sublime debut from German prog outfit Agitation Free – a set that's definitely free of agitation, and one that spins out in these long, winding lines with lots of Eastern influences! There's a bit of drone to some of the grooves, but never in a sleepy or sloppy sort of way – and in addition to familiar prog instrumentation on guitar, keyboards, and percussion, there's also some added ethnic elements as well, and even a bit of steel guitar, zither, and live tape work too! Tracks are longish and nicely organic, and although there's some vocals on the record the whole thing's much more of an exploratory instrumental affair – very much like some of the best early work on Brain. Titles include "You Play For Us Today", "Sahara City", "Ala Tul", "Pulse", "Malesch", and "Rucksturz". CD

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

AirVirgin Suicides ... CD
Record Makers/Astralwerks, 2000. Used ... $2.99
A great album from French combo Air – ingenious working on dual fronts – as the moody original score to Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, but it also works incredibly well as a stand-alone listening experience! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their usual atmospherics are dusted off with fairly jazzy instrumentation and post-Bacharach arrangements. Gordon Tracks sings guest vocals on "Playground Love" and the whole thing's got a beautiful airy 60s pop style to it – tracks include "Clouds Up", "Bathroom Girl", "Cemetary Party", "Dirty Trip", "Highschool Lover (Theme From The Virgin Suicides)", "Afternoon Sister", "Ghost Song", and "Dead Bodies".

✨✧ Pekka AiraksinenBuddhas Of Golden Light ... LP
O Records/Arc Light Editions (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A record that's got a much more dynamic feel than you'd expect from the title – no meditative sounds at all, and instead these really energetic rhythms that seem be years ahead of their time! The album leaps out in a frenzied undercurrent of drum and bass – not the later London mode, but with a freewheeling vibe seems to prefigure it by a decade or so, but in a more subtle way – while Pekka Airaksinen throws in these completely mindblowing keyboards that seem to move up and down the scale in terms of both volume and frequency – mixed with added tenor from A Ben Helander. The record gets a bit more mellow on side two, but still with an energy and pulse that almost feels random at times – and makes for music that's as unsettling as it is beautiful. Titles include "Sukirti","Ranasikhin", and "Kandasuryapradipa". 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".

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".

ArchiesSunshine ... LP
Kirshner, 1970. Very Good ... $4.99
Believe it or not, the 4th album by The Archies – and one that's way past the early hits that first got them started! The sound here stands out surprisingly well on its own – with less of the cartoony references of the past, and more of a Sunshiney Pop quality that we like a lot. The tunes are still kind of playfully sing-song, in a way that would have worked with the kids, but the overall themes are a bit deeper too. Jeff Barry produced, and titles include "A Summer Prayer For Peace", "Sunshine", "Who's Gonna Love Me", "Mr Factory", "Love & Rock & Roll Music", "Over & Over", "Waldo P Emerson Jones", and "Suddenly Susan".

✨✧ AssociationRenaissance ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good ... $1.99
An aptly-titled album, as it sprung the genius of The Association fully onto the world – and forever changed the rules for dreamy vocal pop music! The album's a wonderful blend of sweet harmonies, LA production, and the kind of slightly-trippy song stylings you already know from The Association's biggest hits. However, the album's also filled with great little songs that you probably haven't heard before – which makes it an even bigger treat, kind of like stumbling upon a treasure box of unheard musical gems that you've been looking for your entire life! Titles include "Songs In The Wind", "Memories Of You", "No Fair At All", "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies", and "Another Time Another Place". LP, Vinyl record album

Association/Charles FoxGoodbye Columbus – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, 1969. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Kevin Ayers, Brian Eno, John Cale, Nico & othersJune 1, 1974 ... LP
Island, 1974. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A British art rock jam session, more or less, pulled together by Soft Machine bassist Kevin Ayers, who recruited Eno, John Cale and Nico, former bandmate Robert Wyatt, the enigmatic Rabbit (John Bundrick) on keyboards – more well known for his work with the Who – plus Mike Oldfield on guitar and a number of other guests and co-conspirators. A nice document of the scene a the time, with concise performances and a much tighter feel than you might imagine given the circumstances of the recording. 9 numbers in all, including "Driving Me Backwards", "Baby's On Fire", "Heartbreak Hotel", "The End", "May I?", "Shouting IN A Bucket Blues", "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes", "Everybody's Sometime And Some People's All The Time Blues" and "Two Goes Into Four".

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".

✨✧ Bad BrainsRock For Light ... LP
PVC, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A seminal album from The Bad Brains – and a set that forever shaped the sound of hardcore in the 80s! These guys are incredibly tight throughout – no doubt because of some previous work in jazz – but they never get overindulgent or too jammy at all – and instead deliver this blinding, blistering version of hardcore that really blows away some of the lesser-trained groups in the underground at the time – full of fire and fierce determination, with a force that's still being felt all these many years later! And despite their rasta roots, there's hardly any reggae-styled moments here – really just a few tracks amidst the triple-time numbers – and probably less than you'd find on an early 80s Clash album! Titles include "Banned In DC", "Sailin' On", "At The Movies", "Right Brigade", "Supertouch", "FVK", "Coptic times", "How Low Can A Punk Get", and "Big Takeover" – and oddly, the whole thing was produced by Ric Ocasek too!

BadfingerStraight Up ... LP
Apple, 1971. Sealed ... $89.99
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
