Body Count (Ice T)Body Count ... LP
Sire/Warner, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Ice T & Body Count's infamous self-titled LP – way more notorious than it should be, and actually a pretty brave move for a rapper circa the early 80s, to roll from a major player in the hardcore solo rap scene – to hardcore punk/hybrid metal! It's fun stuff, seemingly influenced by Suicidal Tendencies (themselves pretty notorious back in the day) – with "Smoked Pork", "Now Sportss", "KKK B**ch", "There Goes The Neighborhood", "Evil Dick", "Body Count Anthem", "Oprah" and more.

✨✧ English BeatI Just Can't Stop It ... LP
Sire, 1980. Very Good- ... $4.99
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms and tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocals, too. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

English BeatWha'ppen ... LP
Sire, 1981. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of best ever albums by The English Beat – one that cemented their status as one of the most creative groups to come out of the ska revival scene! Wha'ppen has lots of fresh instrumentation and experimentation – but that's in service of some tight, insistent songcraft – and they never ever bury their their Caribbean influences. There's a bit more Afro Beat-inspired rhythms and some atmospheric underground pop touches, but it's still get plenty of the Jamaican style we loved about their earlier work, too – on a record that didn't get the acclaim it deserved at the time! Titles include "Monkey Murders", "I Am Your Flag", "Walk Away", "Get A Job", "The Limits We Set", "Dream Home In NZ", and "Drowning". LP, Vinyl record album

MinistryLand Of Rape & Honey (opaque colored vinyl) ... LP
Sire, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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".

MinistryMind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste (metallic gold colored vinyl) ... LP
Sire/Drastic Plastic, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
Legendary late 80s industrial rock from Ministry! They had been moving step-by-step into more aggro territory with each successive effort, but The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste was their biggest leap to date, and pretty much sets the template for the heavy sound that they'd be known for for years to come. Thrash metal guitars raging over heavy drums and programming, angry vocals and samples – it's all here. Few records bridged fanbases like this one in 1989 – it's beloved to fans of both Soft Cell AND Slayer – what's not to love about that? Includes "Thieves", "Burning Inside", "Cannibal Song", "So What", "Test", "Faith Collapsing", "Breathe" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Talking HeadsFear Of Music ... CD
Sire, 1979. Used ... $3.99
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno's late 70s fascination with global rhythms – elements that are often used in spare, simple little ways to really help inflect the tunes with a playful imagination that goes way beyond the colder post-punk and new wave of most of their contemporaries! The balance of previous aesthetics with these new grooves is wonderful – heard to great effect on the classic club cut "I Zimbra" – but brewing up strongly underneath on gems that include "Mind", "Paper", "Cities", "Life During Wartime", "Memories Can't Wait", "Air", "Heaven", "Animals", "Electric Guitar", and "Drugs".

Velvet UndergroundLive MCMXCIII ... CD
Sire, 1993. Used 2CD ... $2.99
The Velvet Underground live in 1993 – something we never would have expected a decade before, and a performance that's gone onto have more permanence in the group's catalog over the years! The concert's recorded in Paris, with a quartet lineup that reunites John Cale with the group – Lou Reed, Sterling Morrison, and Moe Tucker – and while there's not as many freaky longform jams as you might find in the Robert Quine tapes from the early years, there's still some surprisingly nice longer tracks that really open up some tunes – including "Heroin", "Some Kinda Love", "The Gift", "Rock & Roll", and "Hey Mr Rain". Lots more nice moments too – including "Velvet Nursery Rhyme", "Black Angels Death Song", "Femme Fatale", "Beginning To See The Light", "Afterhours", and "Venus In Furs". CD

✨✧ SaintsEternally Yours (colored vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Parlophone, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roxy MusicComplete Studio Albums (half speed masters) (8LP set) ... LP
EG/Virgin, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 8LP ... $173.99 192.98
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. The package is beautiful – a textured, super-heavy slipcover, filled with all the records in original artwork – and all albums are half-speed mastered, for really stunning sound!

YelloStella ... LP
Mercury, 1985. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Thank John Hughes & Ferris Beuller for the fame of this one – the album that pushed Yello over the top with the perennial favorite "Oh Yeah" – a tune that's been used countless times over the years since that famous soundtrack, and which still resonates on TV commercials and local news promos to this day! Yet despite the overplayed quality of that track, there's still a brilliance here that shows that Yello were capable of remaining creative even at the height of their fame – a talent for uncomplicated electronics that step out with quirky, playful modes that ooze charm and a sense of personal vision within pop music. Titles include "Oh Yeah", "Vicious Games", "Desire", "Domingo", "Let Me Cry", "Sometimes", "Angel No", "Ciel Ouvert", and "Desert Inn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DevoOh, No! It's Devo ... LP
Warner, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". HAHAHAHA. HAHAHAHA. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RatsIntermittent Signals ... LP
Mississippi, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The second album by The Rats – who thundered into the 80s in fiery, cathartic fashion with the Intermittent Signals LP! Fred Cole & co trudge on without the departed (from the band, and soon from life on Earth) Rod Rat, but Rod guests on the LP – with Sam Henry of the Wipers now on board. The Rats had a pretty strong, if shambling melodic sensibility lost on many of their early 80s punk peers, and this LP is well worth a discovery! Titles include "Nightline", "Wanna Be Your Man", "Haywire Desire", "Kids Are Kids", "Descending Shadows", "Daddy's In The Shadows", "Radio Pulse", "Heaven Don't Cry", "Running Away From You", "Animal" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
