Ian MatthewsIf You Saw Thro' My Eyes ... LP
Vertigo, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A really nice set from Ian Matthews – who cut his teeth a few years earlier with Fairport Convention – and gets a little help here from fellow Fairporters Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson. Ian's warmth in the vocal department really glows here – and the sound overall brings in some sweet country rock and west coast folk rock as well as any Brit effort we can think of. Very good stuff! Tracks include "Desert Inn", "Hearts", "Never Ending", "Reno Nevada", "Hinge I", "Hinge II", "Southern Wind", Morgan The Pirate", "If You Saw Thro' My Eyes" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(White label swirl pressing. Cover has a cutout hole & some light wear.)

Robert WyattRuth Is Stranger Than Richard (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Ryko (Japan), 1975. Used ... $15.99
A great little record, and one of Robert Wyatt's best! The album was cut after his years with Soft Machine and Matching Mole, and is a perfect blend of Wyatt's earlier jazz-tinged work with his newer interest in electronics, spacey pop, and madly clever lyricism! The record is at once thoroughly groundbreaking and endlessly charming – one of the best moments in the British experimental rock scene of the 70s – and still easily one of the greatest albums that Robert ever cut. Fred Frith co-wrote some of the tunes with Wyatt – and titles include "Song For Che", "Sonia", "Team Spirit", "Muddy Mouth", "Muddy Mouse", and "5 Black Notes & 1 White Note". CD
(Out of print. Includes obi! Barcode has a promotional sticker.)

VariousBoppin By The Bayou – Rock Me Mama! – 28 Killer Diller Louisiana Tracks ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer cuts from the farthest reaches of the Louisiana scene in the early years of rock and roll – and exactly the kind of material that shows why that state was such an influential one at the time! The music here isn't just familiar rockabilly or crossover hits – and instead has this very deep, dirty vibe that brings together earlier blues, R&B, and even jazz elements – the kind of swampy mix that informed the groove in New Orleans soul, heard here with equal complexity in a range of really raw rockers! Piano triplets, snapping drums, and soulful tenor lines abound – and along with the very well-done notes, and a number of never-issued tracks, the whole thing works like some window into a lost corner of the southern scene of the time. Titles include "Bad Luck" by Danny, "Switch Blade Sam" by Jeff Daniels, "Gonna Work" by Richard Bros, "You're Jealous" by Jivin Gene, "You're Happy Now" by Little Carol, "Bayou Boogie" by Bennie Fruge, "She Left Me" by Al Ferrier, "Rock Me Mama" by Ken Lindsay, "Havin A Whole Lotta Fun" by Johnny Jano, "Rockin Fever" by Joe Carol & The Dukes Of Rhythm, and "Mama Look What Your Little Boy's Done" by Warren Storm.

✨✧ VariousOrk Records – New York, New York ... CD
Numero, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $30.99 39.98
A mindblowing tribute to one of the most important indie rock labels of the early punk years – New York's Ork Records – an imprint that was almost as important to the music as CBGB! The label only lasted a few short years, but had an uncanny ear for capturing the best new sounds of the time – that genre-crossing, style-blending mode that distinguished American punk from its early UK partner – and which sometimes had surprisingly strong ties to earlier scenes too. Ork was surprisingly open-minded, and maybe not as narrowly cast as punk labels would become a few years later – but that's also not surprising, given the scene in which they worked – which is captured here beautifully in a very lavish boo, well over 100 pages – not only filled with notes, details on the music, and the history of the label – but also countless photos from the early years of punk in New York too. But hell, the music is more than enough to make this set great – as the package features a wealth of excellent titles that include "Let It Blurt" by Lester Bangs, "Little Johnny Jewel" by Television, "Fa Ce La" by The Feelies, "I Won't Give Up" by Erasers, "All Of The Time" by Alex Chilton, "I Thought You Wanted To Know" by Chris Stamey & The DBs, "You" by The Idols, "Christmas Weather" by The Student Teachers, "Everytime I Close My Eyes" by Prix, "You Gotta Lose" by Richard Hell, "Fire & Smoke" by Marbles, "Connection" by Richard Lloyd, "Play With Fire" by Mick Farren & The New Wave, "Funky Kinky" by Kenneth Higney, and lots lots more!

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ BandIslands ... LP
Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A truly underappreciated later album from The Band, made after they decided to hang it up as a touring act – one that holds up SO much better than it's given credit for, by thier die hard fans and even The Band itself – but it works for us! The Band's most legendary first couple of records were the product of a longtime road tested group of deeply invested craftsmen, working together in a beautifully intuitive way. By this point, they are well known to have been looking for an exit strategy – and while Islands is a strong batch of songs, masterfully played and soulfully sung – it's genuine charms get lost in the lore. It's a breezier, easier going affair than their more rawly passionate records, but it's an overlooked gem. Includes "Right As Rain", "Street Walker", "Ain't That A Lot Of Love", "Islands", "The Saga Of Pepote Rouge", "Knockin' Lost John", "Living In A Dream" and their sweet little take on "Georgia On My Mind", with Richard Manuel on lead vocals for a change, given this beauty of a pop standard a gruff edge that works wonderfully well.
