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", "What Love Is", "Caught With The Meat In Your Mouth", "I Need Lunch", and "High Tension Wire". CD

Depeche ModeBest Of Depeche Mode Vol 1 (3LP set) ... LP
Sire/Reprise/Mute, 1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 3LP ... $44.99
A double-length collection of work from one of the greatest electro pop bands ever! Depeche Mode took the darkness of the UK post-punk years, and found a way to make everything bright, groovy, and downright danceable – all while doing a surprisingly good job of keeping their composure, even while posturing! At the time, we never would have guessed these tunes to have had such long legs – but years later, they still have an undeniable charm that keeps on pleasing generations. Titles include "Personal Jesus", "Just Can't Get Enough", "Master & Servant", "New Life", "Walking In My Shoes", "People Are People", "It's No Good", "Strangelove", "Suffer Well", "Enjoy The Silence", "Shake The Disease", "See You", and "Everything Counts".

Brian Eno & David ByrneMy Life In The Bush Of Ghosts ... LP
Sire, 1981. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A groundbreaking collaboration between Brian Eno & David Byrne – recorded with a spare, stripped down love of electronics and found sound samples – in a mode that would have a huge influence on countless records to come! Part of the set resonates with the quirky grooves found in Byrne's early Talking Heads records – but the overall sound is much more stark than that work, and is characterized by key found vocals and odd ethnic bits that really set the tone for each new tune. Eno's influence is felt strongly in the simplicity of the tracks, and in the darkly resonant production modes – that classic Eno touch used here before it became a bit too trademark, in a way that could still make a record like this sound great, even when coming from major label sources! A key force in shaping countless genres to come in the next 25 years – with great tracks that include "America Is Waiting", 'Regiment", "The Jezebel Spirit", "Qu'ran", "Moonlight In Glory", "A Secret Life", "Come With Us", and "Mountain Of Needles".

Flamin GrooviesFlamin Groovies Now ... LP
Sire, 1978. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The black and white cover may look a bit punk, but the Flaming Groovies continue their great move into jangle pop – working here again with producer Dave Edmunds, who really seems to find the right direction for this sound! The music is almost a pastiche of older Brit modes from the mid 60s – but served up without any sort of cliche, almost in this way that acts as an ironic reference to an imagined past – served up with a bit less upfront snarl than the previous incarnation of the Groovies, but still an edge that really comes through in the music! Titles include "Move It", "Take Me Back", "Feel A Whole Lot Better", "House Of Blue Lights", "Yeah My Baby", "Don't Put Me On", and "All I Wanted". LP, Vinyl record album

MinistryLand Of Rape & Honey ... LP
Sire, 1988. Sealed ... $43.99
A huge moment for Ministry – and the record that strongly brought forward all the underground styles that Al Jourgenson was bringing to the Chicago scene! The vocals and overall sound are a lot rawer than ever before – especially the earliest Ministry music, which was more in a Brit pop mode – and the record is honestly more of a Wax Trax release, as it shows Al's strong links to the industrial underground that had grown up around that Chicago label – as well as a surprising interest in hardcore too. Recorded in both Chicago and London, with some great guest work from Chris Connelly (onetime Dusty Groove employee!) – and titles that include "Deity", "The Missing", "Destruction", "Golden Dawn", "Stigmata", "Land Of Rape & Honey", and "Flashback".

Paley BrothersPaley Brothers ... LP
Sire, 1978. Sealed ... $5.99
The vastly-overlooked but totally wonderful work of The Paley Brothers – a pair of siblings with a great ear for a hook, working here in a style that's a bit power pop, a bit old school rock, and mighty tight throughout! Given that their work was issued on late 70s Sire Records, the duo were probably too cheery to catch on like their punkish contemporaries on the label – but there's a really timeless feel to the record that makes their music well worth discovering all these many years later!

✨✧ Radio BirdmanRadios Appear ... LP
Sire, 1978. Near Mint- ... $59.99
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.

RamonesLeave Home (40th Anniversary deluxe edition – 3CDs/LP) ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1977. New Copy 3CD & LP (reissue)... $59.99 64.98
The Ramones really caught their classic recorded sound for the first time on Leave Home – the second of their three perfect late 70s milestones. As amazing as the debut is, its two-channel shrieking buzz saw sound bowed nicely to the slightly more digestible but just as cathartic roar of the follow ups. Titles include "California Sun", "Glad To See You Go", "Suzy Is A Headbanger", "Pinhead", "What's Your Game", "Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment", and "I Remember You". This is an INSANE package – with a huge amount of material! First, the whole thing is limited and numbered – and comes in an LP-size book, with a vinyl copy of the album in a 40th Anniversary mix. Plus, the 3CDs feature the full original mix of the album, and the full 40th Anniversary mix on CD 1. CD2 features bonus material – 33 tracks, many unissued – including Sundragon rough mixes of tracks from the album – plus very rare b-sides, singles, instrumentals, and very weird mixes. Then CD3 features a never-issued live set – recorded at CBGB on 4/2/1977 – 19 tracks of vintage Ramones in their home turf! LP, Vinyl record album

The fun fun soundtrack to Rock 'N' Roll High School – that gloriously, knowingly trashy Roger Corman produced movie vehicle for the Ramones! Of course The Ramones are all over the soundtrack, but it's got a bunch of 70s new wave and hard rock from Devo, Eno, Nick Lowe, Todd Rundgren and more. Includes "Rock N Roll High School", "I Want You Around", a medley of "Blitzkrieg Bop", "Pinhead", "California Sun" and more by The Ramones, "Come Back Jonee" by Devo, "Energy Fools The Magician" by Eno, "So It Goes" by Nick Lowe, "School Days" by Chuck Berry, "School's Out" by Alice Cooper and more.

Richard Hell & The VoidoidsBlank Generation (2CD 40th anniversary edition) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Sire, 1977. New Copy 2CD (reissue)... On November 24, 2017
Sublime sneering work from the great Richard Hell – a key album in the evolution of punk on the US scene! The record marks a huge shift after Hell left Television – harder, nastier sounds – almost on a par with the Dead Boys on Sire, but a bit more artistic too – especially given Hell's penchant for creative wordplay. The mighty Robert Quine is on guitar – and tracks include the seminal "Blank Generation" and "Love Comes In Spurts", plus "Liars Beware", "The Plan", Walking On The Water", and "Another World". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Saturday, November 25.

ReplacementsFor Sale – Live At Maxwell's 1986 ... CD
Rhino/Warner, 1986. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
It's been many years since The Replacements made their amazing music – but the genius of the group lives anew, thanks to the release of this tremendous live set from 1986! The group had moved from an indie label to Sire by the time of the show, but there's a searing intensity to most of the tracks that recalls their Twin/Tone material at its best – much more punkish than in the final years of the group – played with a deftness and speed that they didn't even have a few years before! In fact, if we were to find a way to describe the set, we might well call it the great lost album between Let It Be and Tim – as it combines all the best aspects of those sets, and has impeccable songwriting mixed with the raw edge that the group had at the start. The recording quality is wonderful – the set was captured at the legendary Maxwell's club in Hoboken, back when Hoboken was cool enough to have a scene – and titles include fantastic remakes of "Fox On The Run" and "Black Diamond" – plus "Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out", "Kiss Me On The Bus", "Hitchin A Ride", "If Only You Were Lonely", "Hold My Life", "I Will Dare", "Color Me Impressed", "Dose Of Thunder", "Bastards Of Young", "Baby Strange", "Take Me Down To The Hospital", "Left Of The Dial", "God Damn Job", "Answering Machine", "Gary's Got A Boner", "Waitress In The Ky", "Favorite Thing", and "Can't Hardly Wait".

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", "She Sells", "Could It Happen To Me", "Both Ends Burning", "Just Another High", and "Whirlwind". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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. Includes the completely great singles "Time Out For Fun","Peek-a-boo!" and "That's Good", plus "Out Of Sync", "Explosions", "Patterns", "Big Mess", "Speed Racer", "What I Must Do", "I Desire" and "Deep Sleep".

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

Scott WalkerScott 1 ... LP
Philips/Universal (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About October 20, 2017 (delayed)
Scott Walker's first album as a solo act – and an incredible set that's light years ahead of his earlier work with The Walker Brothers! Gone are the simple, straightforward pop tunes – and in their place is a more sophisticated mode of work – one inspired by the French pop of Jacques Brel, the cinema of Ingmar Bergman, and a host of other contemporary influences simmer in young Scott's head! The vocals are tremendous – more mature and balanced than ever before – clearly showing Walker's desire to ascend into the ranks of great male singers of the 20th Century, yet not in a way that's cloyingly poppish. Arrangements are great too – handled by Brit easy maestros Reg Guest, Peter Knight, and Wally Stott – and the tracks include the classic originals "Such A Small Love", "Montague Terrace", and "Always Coming Back To You" – plus versions of Jacque Brel's "Mathilde", "Amsterdam", and "My Death" – as well as "Angelica", "The Big Hurt", and "When Joanna Loved Me".

WitchMovin On/Kuomboka ... CD
Now Again, 1980/1984. New Copy 2 CDs ... $6.99 19.98
Two later moments from Zamrock legends Witch – both of which show the group moving into a much more soulful groove! Movin On has a sweet funky style at the core – a mode that shows Witch 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". Kuomboka is a surprisingly great later set from Witch – one that still has some of their funky styles of a few years before, but which also seems to bring in some stronger African elements as well – in the kind of sweet fusion that was showing up in some of the hipper South African acts of the period. The sound is more late 70s, especially in the keyboards, than some of the clunkier pop that you might expect from the 1984 date – and a few really great numbers have cool moogy touches that really make the record stand out. Titles include "Erotic Delight", "Come Together", "More Sweat Than Sweet", "I Wanna See The Light", and "Kuomboka". (Global Grooves, Rock) CD

VariousOne Way Glass – Dancefloor Prog, Brit Jazz, & Funky Folk 1968 to 1975 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
One of the coolest collections of grooves you might ever hope to own – a batch of tracks that come from the unlikely prog underground in the UK – but which are full of heavy basslines, riffing guitars, and funky drums! A few years earlier, the UK scene was in love with American soul and blues – which came through in famous straighter recordings of those modes overseas – but by the time of these tracks, the scene had really found its own vibe – stretching out in ways that were famously filled-out, yet still influenced strongly by more soulful modes in all the right ways! The result is a wonderful blend of soaring instrumentation, sometimes trippy production, and very groovy rhythms – sort of the hybrid that you were getting in America by groups like Chicago or Santana, but served up here by some much more obscure underground acts. The 3CD set is a fantastic overview of this wonderful moment – and features 58 tracks, along with a big booklet of notes. Titles include "The Bitch" by Gasoline Band, "Somethin You Got" by Second Hand, "Home Is Where I Belong" by Quicksand, "He's Gonna Step On You Again" by John Kongos, "Bad Times" by Paladin, "Travelling Like A Gypsy" by Hanson, "I'm A Thief" by Juicy Lucy, "So Many People" by Skin Alley, "3D Mona Lisa" by Paul Brett Sage, "One Way Glass" by Trifle, "Wake Up My Children" by Siren, "The Devil Made Me Do It" by Curtis Knight Zeus, "Drinking My Wine" by Hardin & York, "Little Message" by Jody Grind, "Eyeballs" by Blue Mink, "Celebration" by Chillum, "Weren't Born A Man" by Dana Gillespie, "I Saw An Angel" by Pentangle, "Libel" by Hard Stuff, "Pigs Foot" by Pesky Gee, "I'm A Man" by The Web, and "Indian Rope Man" by Noir.

✨✧ Jefferson AirplaneSurrealistic Pillow ... LP
RCA, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Used ... 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".

✨✧ Janne SchafferKatharsis/Earmeal/Presens ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of albums from Swedish guitarist Janne Schaffer – brought together in a single set! First up is Katharsis – a record that catapulted the artist from his home in the Swedish scene to big international fame – hot on the heels of a number of key guitar solos that Schaffer added to Abba records in the 70s! The album's all instrumental, and mostly a fusion workout overall – with loads of heavyweight guitar work from Janne, at a level that really makes the instrument talk more than most of his American contemporaries – echoing some of the phrasing that you might find from players like Adrian Belew or Robert Fripp. Titles include "The Blue Gate", "Atlantia Inn 2419", "Stocking Suite", "Ramsa", "Wintergreen", and "Bromma Struttin". Earmeal is a definite meal for the ears from guitarist Janne Schaffer – a musician who first rose to fame in Sweden, then captivated a global audience with records like this! The set has Schaffer maybe fitting in a bit more with his Columbia Records fusion contemporaries than before – using that amazing voice of his on guitar to work amidst modes that are sometimes soulful, sometimes a bit more brightly rocking – with help from Bjorn Jason Lindh on keyboards and flute, and Jeff Porcaro on some nice tight drums. Titles include "Bromma Express", "Hot Days & Summer Nights", "To A Beautiful Painter", "Happy Feet", "Shrimp A La Carte", and "Oriental Sign". Presens is maybe the tightest of all the Columbia Records albums cut by guitarist Janne Schaffer – a record that has some short, focused tracks that fall into the rock-influenced fusion style of the time – one with vocals from Janne, but the rest using only his guitar as the main "voice" in the lead! All tracks feature work from the great Bjorn Jason Lindh – who we love on his own records, and who plays keyboards, piano, and flute – on titles that include "Mr Allansson Pickles", "Open Eyes", "Desire", "Neonmoisture", "Fata Morgana", and "March From Refresher Course".

✨✧ Talk TalkSpirit Of Eden ... LP
EMI/Manhattan, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
What can we say? These guys started as typical new romantic pop drones, but evolved into a surprisingly complex group, one whose soundscape approach to musical compostion would have a lasting effect on bands for years to come. This album, their turning point from 1988, is a masterpiece of fragile, subtle beauty – with 6 spectacular tracks by Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Green. Titles include "Eden", "Desire", "Inheritance", and "I Believe In You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent EU reissue, including the DVD.)

✨✧ Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1971. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ 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!
