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- ... $29.99
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".

Radio BirdmanRadios Appear ... LP
Sire, 1978. Near Mint- ... $49.99
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.

RamonesEnd Of The Century ... LP
Sire, 1980. Very Good+ ... $39.99
The Roger Corman-Phil Spector year of the mighty Ramones! End Of The Century is a huge departure from the 1-2-3-4 burst and roar of the first 4 Ramones albums – a big ol' Phil Spector production – recorded concurrently with the filming of late 70s hottie PJ Soles dancing around in her underwear with a shy and shell-shocked Joey in Rock And Roll High School! Lord knows that End Of The Century was the end of the Ramones as we knew and loved them on LP (they remained great live until the very end), but it holds up very well and the big sound brings a smile. Plus it's got "Chinese Rock", worth the price alone. Other tracks include "Do You Remember Rock'N'Roll Radio?", "I'm Affected", "Danny Says", "The Return Of Jack & Judy", "Let's Go", "Baby, I Love You", "I Can't Make It On Time", "This Ain't Havana", "Rock N Roll High School", "All The Way" and "High Risk Insurance".

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

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".

✨✧ SmithsStrangeways, Here We Come ... LP
Rough Trade, 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
Part of the great 80s run from The Smiths – and a record that has them continuing to grow, continuing to express new ideas – yet still find a way to hang onto all the charm and catchiness that made them so great in the first place! Morrissey's definitely stretching out a bit with his songwriting, and Johnny Marr's guitar finds lots of lovely places to show us why he was such a standout talent in his generation – and production, as always, is wonderfully uncluttered – none of those too-smooth or too-commercial modes that held back so many Smiths contemporaries once they started raising in fame. Titles include "A Rush & A Push & The Land Is Ours", "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me", "I Won't Share You", "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before", "Death Of A Disco Dancer", and "Girlfriend In A Coma".

Jimi Hendrix instrumental studio sessions circa 1969 and 1970 – one of best of the "authorized bootleg" releases from by Hendrix estate over the years – with some really great all instrumental jams with the heaviness and drive we know and love, with some looser and more exploratory material that's pretty amazing, too! Recorded at the Record Plant throughout '69 & '70 with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles, and it's pretty incredible stuff! Titles include "Ezy Ryder," "Cherokee Mist/Astro Man", "Villanova Junction Blues," "Izabella," and "Burning Desire." LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Janne SchafferKatharsis/Earmeal/Presens ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
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".

Scott WalkerScott 1 ... LP
Philips/Universal (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
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

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
File this one under "raunch", or maybe "twang" – or maybe both, because there's plenty of raunchy twang going on all the way through! The album follows strongly in the same space as the previous volumes – with lots of weird, wonderful tracks from the glory day of the indie 45rpm single – music that doesn't need to be called rock, jazz, or anything else – and which just revels in its existence over the few short minutes of its spin on the turntable! If you've dug the other Stag O Lee compilations, you'll find plenty to love here. CD brings together the albums Buzzsaw Joint Vols 3 and 4 – and titles include "Wombat Twist" by Glenn & Christy, "Street Fight" by Phil Campos, "Almost Eighteen" by Honey & The Bees, "Ali Baba's Tent" by The New Starts, "Cleopatra 30 BC" by The Fables, "Chinese Junk" by Lenny Troy, "Twisting In The Jungle" by Buddy Bow, "Beat History" by Jack Franklin & The Rock-Its, "Wing Ding"by The Jokers, "Days Are Numbered" by Al Nathan, "Lolita" by Berlingeri, "La La La" by Jean Kassapian, "Bondage Of Love" by Bobby Towers, "Cobra" by Bailey's Nervous Kats, "Summertime" by The Schulman Kids, "Strange Desire" by Troy Talton, "Senor Blues" by Jeri Southern, "Strange Man" by Hanna Dean, "Dangerous Lips" by The Drivers, and "Hall Of Shame" by Bobbie Bolden.

Weirdo sounds from the glory days of the rare single – a great time when so many records were coming out, nobody ever cared too much about trying to stick to a familiar style or cash in on a certain market! Instead, the music here really mixes things up in a great way – as Latin rhythms, twangy guitars, jazzy piano, and other elements all come together in a range of great styles – sometimes soulful, sometimes exotic, and always with the great underground sound we love from this series! Titles include "Lolita" by Berlingeri, "La La La" by Jean Kassapian, "Bondage Of Love" by Bobby Towers, "Cobra" by Bailey's Nervous Kats, "Summertime" by The Schulman Kids, "Strange Desire" by Troy Talton, "Senor Blues" by Jeri Southern, "Strange Man" by Hanna Dean, "Dangerous Lips" by The Drivers, and "Hall Of Shame" by Bobbie Bolden.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousOne Way Glass – Dancefloor Prog, Brit Jazz, & Funky Folk 1968 to 1975 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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.

Warner, 1982. Used ... 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".
