Igor WakhevitchLes Fous D'Or (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP LP format
Pathe/Fauni Gena (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Really dark sounds from the enigmatic Igor Wakhevitch – even darker than his previous albums, and that's saying a lot, given the nature of those sets! This one was done in collaboration with American dancer Carolyn Carlson – but given the moody, offbeat quality of the sounds on the disc, we're damned if we can figure out how anyone could physically interact with the music! Some passages are very abstract and electronic – while others seem to use atonal acoustic instruments, but with a vibe that's still quite electric – and even the few female vocal passages come across with a sharp, striking quality – a bit like Cathy Berberian with Berio. Titles include "Eve Speaks", "Henry The Fool Of The Doll", "Ritual Of The Master Of The Doll", "Arrival Of The Magic Doll", and "Twilight & Call Of The Ascending Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl – and comes with a great insert too!)

Peppermint Trolley CompanyPeppermint Trolley Company ... LP LP format
Acta, 1968. Very Good- ... $24.99
These guys are best remembered for their theme to The Brady Bunch – but this earlier album is far far better than that – a tremendous Sunshine Pop gem from the late 60s, baroque one minute, sweet the next – and always filled with a fresh sense of musical surprise! The group get a bit of help on the record from Roger Nichols and Chad Stuart (of Chad & Jeremy) – and their work here definitely echoes with the greatness of both guests – far more complicated than regular California pop of the time, with hardly an ear for the charts – and a timeless quality that's possibly better discovered from the perspective of the 21st century than the era it was released! Vocals are way more than just sweet harmonies too – as they often have an undercurrent of darkness, and a bit more of an edge than you might guess – bringing real magic to tunes that include "Trust", "Beautiful Sun", "Reflections On A Universal Theme", "I've Got To Be Going", "I Remember Long Ago", "Put Your Burden Down", "Pat's Song", and "Fatal Fallacy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some wear, two cutout holes, some seam splitting, light stains, and some wrinkling along the bottom.)

SagittariusPresent Tense (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Columbia/Rev-Ola (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderful post-Millenium project from godlike California producers Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher – working together here as Sagittarius, and getting help from a whole host of LA hipsters too! The work has a dreamy Sunshine Pop vibe all the way through – even more gentle and personal than Millenium, with a quality that we might well rank up there with Roger Nichols & The Small Circle of Friends – done with a similar echoey vocal approach that's wrapped around some great little songs that you'll be humming long after the album is over! Titles include "Hotel Indiscreet", "My World Fell Down", "The Keeper Of The Games", "Another Time", "Song to The Magic Frog", "Would You Like To Go", and "I'm Not Living Here". CD also includes 8 bonus tracks – including "Mass 586", "Lonely Girl", "Artificial Light", "Get The Message", and "Love's Fatal Way". CD

Margie SingletonPledging My Love – Juke Box Pearls ... CD CD format
Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Sweet girl pop from the early 60s – a treasure trove of work from the under-discovered Margie Singleton! If Margie's last name seems familiar, that's no coincidence – as the cuts here were produced by Shelby Singleton, later of SSS International fame – recorded in Nashville in a unique approach to female pop at the time! The music's definitely a bit country, but not entirely so – as Margie's got this cool crossover vibe, of the sort we can always find in Shelby's music – so that she also echoes styles from the west coast scene of the period, but always tinged with a heartbreaking quality that's pure Tennessee! The tracks here originally appeared as early 60s singles on Mercury, and the package does a great job of bringing them together with all the original session information – as well as lots of notes on her short career. CD features 30 tracks in all – including "Toss A Pebble In The Water", "How Lonely She Must Be", "Chained To A Promise", "Living In A Danger Zone", "Magic Star", "Don't Be Good To Me", "The Cypress Tree", "No Thanks I Just Had One", and "Your Old Love Letters".

New VariousNuggets – Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965 to 1968 (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Rhino, Late 60s. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The immortal collection of psychedelic era garage rock and proto-punk gems – originally released on Elektra in 1972, where it influenced many of the great 70s underground pioneers, long before being reborn as an expanded box set in the late 90s! Lenny Kaye and Elekra Records big wig Jac Holzman put Nuggets together in '72, mixing a bunch of great buzzsaw rock singles, indiscriminately melding hits and underground cuts alike – 27 great tracks by the likes of the Amboy Dukes, Standells, Castaways, Magicians, the Seeds, the Electric Prunes, Sagittarius, the Magic Mushrooms and many more! Tracks include "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" by Electric Prunes, "Dirty Water" by the Standells, "Respect" by Vagrants, "No Time Like The Right Time" by Blues Project, "Invitation To Cry" by Magicians, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by Thirteenth Floor Elevators, "Psychotic Reaction" by Count Five, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Amboy Dukes, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Open My Eyes" by Nazz and more! One of the first great rock anthologies! LP, Vinyl record album
(40th Anniversary 180 gram vinyl analog remastered edition – with a new introduction by Jac Holzman and notes by Lenny Kaye.)
