ReplacementsSire Years (4LP box set) ... LP
Sire/Warner, Mid 80s-Early 90s. New Copy 4 LPs ... $69.99 74.98
The final 4 album from The Replacements – Tim, Pleased To Meet Me, Don't Tell A Soul and All Shook Down – in a 4LP box set! Tim was their first for Sire, and a crossover classic for the champions of the Minneapolis scene – with a couple of their best ever tunes – "Left Of The Dial" and "Hold My Life" – but the whole record is a consistent gem. Pleased To Meet Me is another late period, Sire-era win, this one recorded at Ardent with Jim Dickinson, but retaining the shambling genius you'd expect from the 'Mats. Don't Tell A Soul and All Shook Down are hit-and-miss compared to earlier glories, but each have their charms – especially All Shook Down, which is underrated to this day! LP, Vinyl record album

Burger/Sire, Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool compilation of classic and lesser-remembered gems recorded for Sire Records from the late 60s onward – with tracks by The Strangeloves, The Ramones, Flamin’ Groovies, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, Dead Boys, The Rezillos, Paley Brothers, The Searchers, Madonna and more! Includes a bunch of great cuts from the punk and post-punk years, some pivotal and others new wave nostalgic (like PJ Soles's version of "Rock N Roll High School" from the movie soundtrack), with some later era surprises, too! We really gotta hand it to the Burger label for being way ahead of curve on the cassette revival, and for their good taste in this fun comp!

Ginger BakerGinger Baker & Friends – Eleven Sides Of Baker ... LP
Sire, 1977. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A much more rock-based album than some of Baker's other post-Cream work – but still with some nice grooves that appeal plenty to our ears! The weaker tracks on the album are sort of in a quirky rock mode – but the better ones feature some snapping percussion from Baker and the group, and some nice Afro-styled touches that recall the best Air Force sounds. Titles include "Pampero", "N'Kon Kini N'Kon N'Kon", "Don Dorango", "High Life", and "Don't Stop The Carnival". LP, Vinyl record album

David ByrneCatherine Wheel ... LP
Sire, 1982. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A rare bit of David Byrne from the best years of the Talking Heads – tunes commissioned by Twyla Tharp for an offbeat piece of dance entitled The Catherine Wheel. A few of the tracks are vocals, and feature some of Byrne's most compelling lyrics from the time – and others are instrumentals, filled with guitar and prophet, and coming up with lots of dark rhythmic sounds that lie somewhere in the territory of experimental work at the time by Brian Eno, Jon Hassell, Adrian Belew, and other mainstream avant rockers. Titles include "His Wife Refused", "Two Soldiers", "Red House", "My Big Hands", "Big Business", and "What A Day That Was". LP, Vinyl record album

Dead BoysYoung, Loud, & Snotty ... CD
Sire, 1977. Used ... $9.99
A masterpiece of American punk rock – and arguably the greatest moment ever for the legendary Stiv Bators! The album's got an intensity that blows away most of the UK groups who were making waves in the punk scene at the time – a raw energy that's a closer link to the Stooges and MC5 than anything over on the other side of the pond. Produced by Genya Ravan, and featuring the tracks "Sonic Reducer", "All This & More", "Caught With The Meat In Your Mouth", "I Need Lunch", and "High Tension Wire". CD

Flamin GrooviesGroovies' Greatest Grooves ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.98
A great little collection that hones in on most of the best work from the second chapter of the Flamin Groovies – and which includes a few tracks from their earlier years as well! The group at this stretch were something of an anomaly, but a timeless one too – a 70s group with definite underground leanings, but holding onto some of the best elements of the 60s garage generation as well – not proto-punk, although they found a strong audience in that scene, but maybe more a revision of the past, with the sensibilities of the late 70s present – in a way that makes for a fantastically messed-up aesthetic. All the best cuts from those years are here – and titles include "Shake Some Action", "Teenage Head", "Jumpin In The Night", "Yes I Am", "Down Down Down", "Slow Death", "Yeah My Baby", "Yes It's True", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "River Deep Mountain High", "There's A Place", "I Saw Her", "Don't Put Me On", and "Don't You Lie To Me".

Sire, 1979. Very Good ... $9.99
A surprisingly solid, oft-overlooked end of the 70s set for Sire by Flamin' Groovies – their final effort for the label – and a hard-groovin' gem! Like their previous couple of classic records, this one was recorded in England, with Groovies guitarist Cyril Jordan co-producting, and it's a nice mix of rawly rocking originals and some cool cover versions – with "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", a cool, kinda shambling guitar rock takes on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves Of London" and Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and more.

PretendersPretenders ... CD
Sire, 1980. Used ... $0.99
One of the greatest mainstream rock and roll debuts of all time – and a record that still blows away just about any other later work by The Pretenders! The set's got this raw, sneering power that's neither punk, nor new wave – but which seems to be very much of that moment – a very unique blend of the group's Ohio roots and their London experience – honed to razor-sharp perfection, but never slick or polished at all. Chrissie Hynde is quite far from her ballad modes, and brings this raw, adult vibe to the record that really sets a whole new level for women in rock – never sweet, but never sexed-up either – standing as firmly in the group alongside her masculine cohorts as she does on the cover. Production is great – oddly dark in all the right ways, but with a very simple elegance – and the album's near-perfect from start to finish – with tracks that include "Precious", "The Phone Call", "Tattooed Love Boys", "Private Life", "Kid", "The Wait", and "Mystery Achievement".

A great sophomore set from The Pretenders – one that almost lives up to the dark intensity of their debut – and which certainly continues the group's initial legacy in all the right ways! The album's got a few sweeter moments, but also balances things out with more of Chrissie Hynde's balls-out brashness – and the rest of the group provide sharp musical support to keep all the right raw edges in place. Titles include "Bad Boys Get Spanked", "The Adultress", "Waste Not Want Not", "The English Roses", "Jealous Dogs", "Day After Day", "Talk Of The Town", "Message Of Love", "I Go To Sleep", and "Birds Of Paradise".

Radio BirdmanRadios Appear ... LP
Sire, 1978. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A killer first album from the Aussie punk greats – one of the best remembered bands from the fertile scene down under – and a hugely influential record to punks the world over! Certainly one of the best facets of the group is their punchy way of distilling far reaching influences, from blues damaged grooves picked up from lumbering psychedelic predecessors (hello, Roky Erikson) to tighter, simple bursts of raucous fury. Essential! Includes "What Gives?", "Non-Stop Girls", "Descent Into The Maelstrom", "New Race", "Do The Pop", "Murder City Nights", "Anglo Gir Desire", "Hit Them Again", "You're Gonna Miss Me" and more.

Everything But The GirlLove Not Money ... LP
Blanco Y Negro (Germany), 1985. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A smashing second set from Everything But The Girl – a record that has the duo stretching out a bit more from the straight jazz leanings of their Eden debut – yet still sticking strongly in a mode that has their music moving with lots of classic influences! The songwriting is still top-shelf – not afraid to show its emotions, yet never over-mired in them either – a beautiful balance that really comes through in the vocals of Tracey Thorn. Production is a bit more mainstream, yet still light years away from the clunk of most mid 80s pop – and titles include "When All's Well", "Ugly Little Dreams", "Shoot Me Down", "Are You Trying To Be Funny", "Sean", "Anytown", and "Ballad Of The Times".

A seminal 70s set from this key Aussie band – one that almost had more of an impact here in the US than they did in their homeland! The sound is pretty tight, even though there's some larger horns on some cuts – and The Saints have a razor-sharp guitar edge that doesn't profess to be punkish, but which sits alongside nicely with the other harder Sire work of the time. Titles include "Run Down", "This Perfect Day", "I'm Misunderstood", "International Robots", "No Your Product", "Memories Are Made Of This", and "Lost & Found". One bonus track "Do The Robot". CD

Roxy MusicSiren ... CD
EG, 1975. Used ... $3.99
Quite possibly the biggest early moment of US fame for Roxy Music – thanks to the classic "Love Is The Drug", which kicks off the album and is easily one of the group's best-known tunes of the 70s! The album tightens things up slightly from the sound of Country Life before – not as many dark corners, but still plenty of the offbeat styles that make these early Roxy Music albums so great – with none of the softer styles that took over during the early 80s years. Other tracks include "End Of The Line", "Sentimental Fool", "She Sells", "Could It Happen To Me", "Both Ends Burning", "Just Another High", and "Whirlwind". CD

Sahko (Finland), 2000. Used ... $6.99
Spacey jazzy tracks from Finland! The group's a collective of musicians that includes a bit of work from Jimi Tenor – on vibes, strings, or flute, depending on the track – but the best work is by Brandi Ifgray, who plays keyboards that range from heavy ARP-sounding synth to more stripped-down electric piano to organ. Most tracks have vocals – but the main focus is on the instrumentation, which jams together in a style that ranges from Sun Ra-like spooky to Kraftwerk spare to frenetic fusion. Titles include "Bones", "No Chance", "Mono", "Scam", "Brains", "Freeloading", "Sirens", and "Seas Of Mars". (New Grooves, Rock) CD

Jefferson AirplaneSurrealistic Pillow ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Early genius from these Bay Area stalwarts – one of the greatest rock records of its time! Surrealistic Pillow is the second Jefferson Airplane album, but they took a number of huge creative leaps in the 8 months or so between their debut record and this one. This one is where they're joined by psych siren Grace Slick, but it's not just the line-up change that sets it apart. Surrealistic Pillow is a perfect title, as it's comforting and disorienting at the same time. It's also the magical confluence of wildly different spirits – with standout contributions by the entire band. Titles include the seminal "White Rabbit" – plus "Embryonic Journey", "3/5 Of A Mile In 10 Seconds", "DCBA 25", "How Do You Feel", "Today", "She Has Funny Cars", and "Plastic Fantastic Lover".

Bronson's back on the streets in this sequel to Death Wish – but fortunately, he's got Jimmy Page there to back him up! Page sings on the lead track, "Who's To Blame" – and the rest of them are mostly instrumentals, done with a pretty hard-ripping guitar sound that's actually pretty nice! Think of the album as a Led Zep instrumental set, with a slight bit of soundtrack funk – and you've almost got the whole picture. Titles include "Jam Sandwich", "City Sirens", "The Chase", "Big Band, Sax, & Violence", "Shadow In The City", and "Hotel Rats & Photostats". (Soundtracks, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Kitchenware/Epic, 1985. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the undeniable mainstream treasures of the 80s – the second album from Prefab Sprout, and a masterpiece of gentle soul that forever changed the sound of adult pop! The rhythms are a bit more straightforward than on the group's debut – and they're working with less of the quirky time changes or offbeat instrumental flourishes of that set. But the loss here is really a gain – as the more direct method of songwriting really brings a focus onto the amazing lyrics of Paddy McAloon, and gives them a more subtle presentation that only makes the genius that much more captivating. Titles include "When Love Breaks Down", "Horsin Around", "Desire As", "Blueberry Pies", "Moving The River", and "When The Angels". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter SchillingError In The System (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $14.99
An 80s electro-pop classic from Peter Schilling – one of a handful of German artists who managed to crack the record racks over here at the time – thanks to his strong use of English language on most of the tracks, and his classic "Major Tom" track, which was a nice reference to Bowie's "Space Oddity"! There's a nicely catchy vibe to the record – not as commercial as Nena, but more straightforward than Trio – although very much in the territory of both, given the way that Schilling uses spare electric rhythms and keyboards on most of the instrumentation. In addition to the two-part version of "Major Tom (Coming Home)", other titles include "Only Dreams", "Lifetime Guarantee", "I Have No Desire", "Let's Play", "Error In The System", and "The Noah Plan". CD features 18 more bonus tracks – a few mixes of "Major Tom", plus German cuts "Ich Hab Keine Lust", "Die Wuste Lebt", "Fast Alles Konstruiert", "Dawn Trugt Der Schein", and "Fehler Im System". CD

VariousOld Town Doo Wop Vol 5 ... CD
Old Town/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The long-overdue fifth volume in this amazing series of Doo Wop from the legendary Old Town Records – a real treasure trove of harmony soul, filled with a fair bit of previously unreleased work! Although not always at the top of the charts, Old Town was one of the best east coast imprints for doo wop back in the day – and, as illustrated on previous volumes in the series, the label had a great approach to the music that really let the singers stand strongly on their own, and express themselves freely. Many of the numbers here are far from the too-poppy modes that were hurting other doo wop at the end of the 50s – and instead, the tunes often have a stripped-down, upfront vocal approach – very pure and unfettered, especially on the unreleased numbers. CD features a whopping 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "All Alone" by Bobby Adams & The Serenaders, "Just To Be" by The Intruders, "Country Boy" by The Symbols, "Dreaming Is No Good" by Peggy Farmer & The Harptones, "Lonesome Lover" by The Solitaires, "We Three My Echo My Shadow & Me" by The Sharps, "A Hum Diddley Do" by The Capris, "The Last Round Up" by The Cleftones, "This Is The Night" by The Vocaleers, and "My Heart's Desire" by The Earls.

✨✧ Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous album from Laura Nyro – a real return to the soulful style of her roots, thanks to help from Labelle on backing vocals, and the team of Gamble & Huff on production! If Nyro only ever gave the world this record, that would more than be enough – because the whole thing's an incredibly hip blend of her own great songwriting and some of the more righteous strands of American soul music at the time. Most of the tracks are older soul numbers – some done relatively straight, others done with the more personal, contemplative style you'd expect from Nyro during these years. And decades before Amy Winehouse or Joss Stone started hitting territory like this, Nyro proved that a set of soul tracks like this could come off well, if handled with the right talent! Titles include "The Bells", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Spanish Harlem", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "Desiree", "The Wind", "Nowhere To Run", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "A Natural Woman", "Ooh Child", "Up On The Roof", and "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing". CD

EMI, 1970s/Early 80s. Used 10 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Essential music from Roxy Music – and a set of albums that have made our lives more wonderful for decades – and which still delight us tremendously as the years go on! Despite countless attempts to copy their sound and style, there's really never been another group like Roxy Music – a careful balance of sharp sounds and sensitive sonics, wit and wickedness, rock and restraint – all delivered in a complicated array of guitars, saxophone, keyboards, and basslines, topped with vocals by Bryan Ferry that send the whole thing home beautifully! It's hard to even begin to describe the power of these albums – especially the first five classics, Roxy Music, For Your Pleasure, Stranded, Country Life, and Siren – but fortunately we don't have to, because the set includes them all – plus lots more. You also get the later gems Manifesto, Flesh & Blood, and Avalon – in which Ferry reinvented himself for the younger generation who was stealing his groove. And even better, there's two full CDs of rare tracks – singles, b-sides, and alternate mixes – a huge treasure trove of Roxy Music material that hasn't made it onto other CD reissues over the years – making the whole thing essential for any fan of the group!

Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more goofball pop groove.

✨✧ Chocolate WatchbandMelts In Your Brain Not On Your Wrist – The Complete Recordings 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Throw away all of your other 60s psychedelic albums – because with this massive 2CD set, you'll hardly need them! The Chocolate Watchband were one of the key groups of the California scene of the 60s – a hard-rocking outfit that emerged in the garagey psyche years, and worked in the same south bay scene as Count Five and Syndicate Of Sound. Yet unlike either of those bands, Chocolate Watchband never scored as big on the charts – and also had a harder, rougher, edgier sound that showed what a young group could really do when given the space. There's a Stones-like sense of power here – especially on the rougher, blusier numbers – but also a Love-like sense of tightness and desire to hone the power of the guitar into a key force for the youth of the 60s. And although the group's discography has been slightly mysterious for years, this 2CD set more than corrects any problems – by offering up the full scope of the group's work – including singles on the Uptown and Hanna Barbera labels, material from their Tower LPs, later unissued cuts – and full notes on everything, including those studio sessions that didn't always feature all the members of the group. 43 tracks in all – with amazing notes, photos, and details on the music!

Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant take on vintage sounds by Cornwall combo The Mighty Sceptres – seamlessly mixing vintage funky group soul styles! As much as we dug their earlier 7-inch on Ubiquity, we're pretty much floored by how much deeper this excellent full length cuts! Singer Angeline Morrison has a way of bringing in a soulful warmth with laidback charm – and the band brings a lot of different styles into play, without going too far out of the old school comfort zone. Drums, Rhodes and horns are prominent, but there's some more orchestral string touches, glockenspiel, harmonica and other elements that really take it to another level. All Hail, indeed! Includes "Siren Call", "I Found The Letter", "Just Didn't Mean It", "Sting Like A Bee", "Nothing Seems To Work Right", "Land Of Green Ginger", "We Got A Problem", "Gentle Refrain", "Nothing But A Pack Of Cards", "Krazy Kat" with guest vocals by Ian Dunlop, "That Ol' Feelin'" and more. 13 tracks in all.

An unusual later album from Witch – one that has a sweet funky style at the core – a mode that shows the group picking up a fair bit of disco and club from the American scene, and fusing it with their older Zamrock styles to create a really unique sound overall! At times, the record echoes some of the Euro disco records of the late 70s – but there's also a deeper current to the record too, especially on some of the more personal tunes. Keyboards take over more than guitar at times – and although the group's name originally meant "We Intend To Create Havoc", this record might have changed the meaning to "We Intend To Create Happiness". Titles include "To Be Felt", "Movin On", "I'm Coming Back", "Let's Get Together", "It Feels So Good", and "My Desire". (Global Grooves, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
