✨✧ ReplacementsSire Years (4LP box set) ... LP
Sire/Warner, Mid 80s-Early 90s. New Copy 4 LPs ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Jan AkkermanProfile ... LP
Sire, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Very heavy stuff from guitarist Jan Akkerman – almost more rock than jazz, with a hard-on jamming style that was the heaviest the European scene had to offer at the time! Some tracks have a bit of funky rhythm, but the real focus here is on the guitar – not only the jamming electric, but also Spanish guitar, alto lute, and a bit of bass on a few tracks – played with some sensitive acoustic complexity that really expands the emotive feel of the record. Other players include Ferry Maat on piano, Bert Ruiter on bass, and Pierre Van Der Linden on drums – and titles include "Stick", "Minstrel/Farmers Dance", "Kemps Jig", "Etude", "Maybe Just A Dream", and the extended "Fresh Air" suite.

Flamin GrooviesJumpin In The Night ... LP
Sire, 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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.

MinistryLand Of Rape & Honey (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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".

MorrisseyBona Drag (2LP anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sire/Reprise, 1990. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
A seminal solo set from Morrissey – one that brings together all the singles and EP tracks he issued in the last few years of the 80s – when he moved away from the solid album format of Viva Hate, and just let his ideas hit the market as they came to him! That approach was a bit like that of The Smiths – who sometimes meant more to the world in their progression of singles than albums – but it was also frustrating to fans in the digital age, especially Americans, who had less access to singles in that format – hence the need for this full length set, which turned out to be one of the strongest full statements by the singer after stepping out on his own. Titles include "Piccadilly Palare", "Interesting Drug", "November Spawned A Monster", "Ouija Board Ouija Board", "Everyday Is Like Sunday", "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys", and "Suedehead". 2LP pressing features the bonus tracks and improved mastering of the 2010 20th Anniversary edition!

PretendersPretenders ... LP
Sire, 1980. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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".

RamonesEnd Of The Century (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
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".

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 ... $15.99 22.99
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!

Mighty SceptresAll Hail The Mighty Sceptres ... LP
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 16.98
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.

Jimmy PageDeath Wish II ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1982. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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

✨✧ 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

WitchMovin' On ... LP
Teal/Invisible City Editions (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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

VariousOld Town Doo Wop Vol 5 ... CD
Old Town/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... About October 1, 2016
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.

✨✧ Tim BuckleyStarsailor ... LP
Warner/Straight, 1970. Used ... Temporarily 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".

Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rarely has a compilation on an artist ever been done so well! This materful set compiles all of the rare recordings made by The Left Banke for Mercury during the late 60's – and it puts all 26 tracks together with a great set of notes that details the rocky history of the group. If you don't know The Left Banke, their unique style of "baroque rock" is a wonderful mix of groovy organ, electric harpsichord, and swirling strings – all set as instrumentation for some of the tightest, grooviest little songs you'll ever hear. Nearly every track on here is a toe-tapping hummer, and even if you know their big hits like "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina", you'll still find lots of other goodies like "Desiree", "Ivy Ivy", "Barterers & Their Wives", and "I Haven't Got The Nerve". Great stuff, and a CD that we're never without on a road trip! CD

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

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

✨✧ 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

Stratos hardly sings – and instead uses his voice in ways that recall some of the most compelling vocal experiments of the dada generation – creating unusual sounds, shaping imaginary words, and really blowing us away with the boundaries he's willing to push with his performance – all in a way that's never too self-conscious, which is really saying a lot, given where he goes here!

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!

✨✧ Michael SenaBali High ... CD
Anthology, 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great music from that wonderful second chapter of the surf music soundtrack – not the familiar 60s kind that often featured guitar instrumentals or catchy beach party tunes, but the later style started in Australia in the 70s – when much trippier music came into play! The music here is sometimes laidback rock with a slight yacht-ish vibe, sometimes funkier with a more dramatic flair – especially in the rhythms, which are more electric than vintage, but a lot warmer than the usual sorts of 80s mainstream soundtrack. A few cool tunes bring in some acoustic exotic elements to flesh things out – and although there's some vocals at points, most of the music is instrumental, with a nice focus on keyboards and Fender Rhodes. Titles include "Balinese Bounce", "Desire's First Face", "Cannonade", "Agatha Trim", "Mountain Song", "Ride", "Boeing Boeing Bong", and "Winter". (Soundtracks, Rock) CD

Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Al Stewart, right before his big hit years to come – sounding wonderful here on both his tremendous vocals, and the range of tunes that seem to flow effortlessly from his pen! Production is by Alan Parsons, whose ability to compress elements to perfection is a perfect foil for Al's voice – a style that's tight, but never too smooth – not overly commercial, yet very nicely focused on the kind of hooks that can make Stewart's best songs so wonderful. There's still key traces of Al's folksy roots – but the shift in presentation here marks a real achievement, one that none of his other contemporaries were ever able to hit this well. Titles include "Not The One", "Apple Cider Re-Constitution", "Carole", "Sirens Of Titan", "Modern Times", and "Dark & Rolling Sea". CD
