Body Count (Ice T)Body Count ... LP LP format
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.

RamonesRocket To Russia (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Sire/Rhino, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
The third album by The Ramones and one that a sizable chunk of the fanbase believes to be their very best – and they may be right! So. . .alright, let's get this straight right upfront – the songs don't sound the same, they ARE the same and that's why we love them! If you found a way to concentrate 30 years of the best rock & roll into two and a half minutes of beautiful primal energy that still manages to qualify as ear candy, would you try to change things up? Tracks include "Rockaway Beach", "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker", "Why Is It Always This Way", "Surfin Bird", "Do You Wanna Dance", and "Cretin Hop". LP, Vinyl record album

Ramones & OthersRock N Roll High School ... LP LP format
Sire, 1979. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

New Talking HeadsRemain In Light ... LP LP format
Sire, 1980. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Some of the most compelling grooves the Talking Heads ever recorded – a set that sparkles with imaginative touches, and railroads forward on a wave of complicated rhythms! The sound is brilliant throughout – a genre-less approach that sheds the group's earlier art nerd aesthetic for one that's clearly influenced by late 70s funk and club – but takes that influence in a whole new direction! The whole thing's even fresher than some of the artier downtown moments that bubbled around at the time – as David Byrne and the group actually managed to cross over big with the record – hitting not only urban markets, but also getting some play from the classic rock crowd too. Brian Eno produced, and co-wrote the songs with the group – and some great Green World-esque electronics bubble through the mix, and hold the whole thing together beautifully. Titles include "Houses In Motion", "Once In A Lifetime", "The Great Curve", "Crosseyed & Painless", "Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)", "Listening Wind", "Seen & Not Seen", and "The Overload".

Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP LP format
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ ... $19.99
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)". LP, Vinyl record album

Velvet UndergroundLive MCMXCIII ... CD CD format
Sire, 1993. Used 2CD ... $6.99
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

New RamonesLeave Home ... LP LP format
Sire, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 buzzsaw sound bowed nicely to the slightly more digestible but just as cathartic roar of the follow ups. Totally essential! 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". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jefferson AirplaneSurrealistic Pillow ... LP LP format
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $6.99
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 LP format
Mississippi, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99 17.99
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.

New FamilyIt's Only A Movie ... CD CD format
Castle, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fun late album by Family! Titled It's Only A Movie and with numbers that are sometimes kind of cheekily influenced by the movies, from the the wild west piano of the title track, to sweeter string accents, brass and more – with some more straight forward, kinda laidback or more chugging rockers, to boot. Definitely an overlooked one from an act that should be better remembered! Includes "It's Only A Movie", "Buffet Tea For Two", "Boots 'N' Roots", "Suspicion", "Sweet Desiree" and more. 5 bonus tracks on this edition: "Hometown", live versions of "Holding The Compass", "Dim" and more.

New Prefab SproutTwo Wheels Good (aka Steve McQueen) ... LP LP format
Kitchenware/Epic, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(US pressing. Includes the original inner sleeve.)

New TuxedomoonDesire ... LP LP format
Ralph, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album from Tuxedomoon's European exile era! The sound of Desire follows heavily on the group's excellent Half-Mute set, but also picks up a bit more of a sense of song – trading some of the starker electronic moments for guitar and vocal passages that feature the edgey singing of Winston Tong. Things are quite spare overall, and surprisingly sentimental at times – more personal and less self-indulgent than work by most of the group's contemporaries, or than their own later records in Europe. Titles include "Victims Of The Dance", "Desire", "Again", "In The Name Of Talent", "Incubus", and "Holiday For Plywood". LP, Vinyl record album

New Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
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

New Tim BuckleyStarsailor ... LP LP format
Warner/Straight, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from the legendary Tim Buckley – and one of the records that truly shows why his music was unlike anything else that ever came before! The blend of folksy and jazzy roots really takes off here – stretching forth at times with a spacious feel that's airy, yet full of feeling – as Tim's magnificent vocals are backed by key instrumentation from Lee Underwood on guitar and organ, plus a small lineup of tenor, flute, trumpet, and bass – all bringing some jazzy phrasing to the mix. Tim himself plays 12 string guitar, at a level that's both complex yet completely organic – and titles include the sublime "Song To The Siren", a heavenly tune that perfectly sums up his genius, and which would be enough of a legacy, even if it was the only cut he ever recorded – plus "Monterey", "Come Here Woman", "Jungle Fire", and "Starsailor". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover is heavily stained and flaky on the top 3 inches.)
