Raw, rumbling outsider psych from Stephen David Heitkotter – a wild and raucous stream of rambling genius from the early 70s! There's a loose, bluesy approach at the core – with long songs and a disquieting, yet engrossing mood that makes the set one of the most compelling lost rock ... read moreCD
(A really beautifully done version from Now Again – which comes in thick, hardcover booklet – with bonus tracks.)
The second full album from Richard Hell & The Voidoids – issued with a bit less fanfare than the first, but still every bit as essential! Five years have passed since Blank Generation, but Hell's wit and energy are as sharp as ever – and if anything, The Voidoids have really fused ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Not experienced? Well, this album will help push you over the top – as it's done for decades of listeners from the heyday of young Jimi Hendrix all the way up to the present! The set's a classic through and through – a blueprint not just for the genius of Hendrix, but for generations ... read moreCD
Fuzzy genius from Jimi – two rare tracks back to back on a limited reissue! "Come On (Let The Good Times Roll)" is awash in fuzz right from the start – Hendrix moving at a mighty quick clip up and down the fretboard – and pushing the bluesy core of the tune way past ... read more7-inch, Vinyl record
All the Jimi hits you'd ever want in one place! Titles include "Purple Haze", "Fire", "The Wind Cries Mary", "Stone Free", "Crosstown Traffic", "All Along The Watchtower", "Red House", "Foxy Lady", and "Hey ... read moreCD
The second single ever by The Jimi Hendrix Experience – and featuring not only Jimi's most iconic song, but one the most iconic rock and roll songs of all time – and tight, walloping mono! "Purple Haze" is on the A-Side and "51st Anniversary" is on the flip – ... read more7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the most unlikely of success stories in the long string of posthumous Jimi Hendrix releases – a "new" album of studio recordings from Jimi that actually hits the mark. Billed as an unreleased album, the material has popped up on releases from time to time, but the new mixes ... read moreCD
The Jimi Hendrix Experience at their most classic! Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness.

Ken Hensley & Live Fire —
Trouble ... CD Hear No Evil/Cherry Red (UK), 2013. Used ...
A really great one from Sean O'Hagan and crew – a set that has some of the tighter, warmer songs of Gideon Gaye, but which also shows a bit more experimentation on the instrumentation – in ways that make for plenty of great tracks that almost feel like outtakes from the Pet Sounds and ... read moreCD
(White label promo. Cover has some wear, a promo stamp, and stains on parts of the front and back.)
Steve Hillage —
L ... LP Virgin/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ...
One of the best-remembered solo albums by Steve Hillage – a record that tightens things up a bit more from his debut as a leader, but which still keeps most of the best progressive elements nicely intact! Hillage has a bit more presence here as a star – but at a slightly fuzzy level ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and peeled spots from moisture at the bottom.)
Sublime work from The Hollies – a cool US album that brings together some of their best bits from their 60s UK run on EMI! Some of the best numbers here were arranged by Johnny Scott – and titles include "King Midas In Reverse", "Would You Believe", "Maker" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Back cover has some waviness from moisture.)
An amazing little record – easily one of the coolest albums ever on the legendary Ovation label – and a set that has the small imprint almost hitting the heights of their Chicago neighbor Cadet Records! The core sounds here are from the folksy duo of Chuck Hollins and Dave Starr – ... read moreCD
Humble Pie scales back a bit on Thunderbox – a tighter set than the preceding Eat It – but like that album, it's overlooked these days and it has plenty to recommend it! The Steve Marriot's and Clem Clemson's guitars bring the thunder, but the wailing harmonica and the soulfu vocals ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)
Great early work from Brian Hyland – a singer who's mostly known for his novelty hits, but who has a heck of a lot more to offer! Brian was a really young guy at the time of these recordings, but he sings with a sense of sadness and maturity on some numbers that matches the darkness of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has some wear.)
I Ribelli —
I Ribelli ... LP Contempo (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)...
A very groovy group from the Italian scene of the 60s – one that clearly draw a lot of inspiration from both American soul and the garage underground – which is then fused into this really unique Italian language style of its own! There's plenty of fuzz on the guitars, and lots of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the earliest efforts from percussionist/electronic musician Andre Centazzo – an artist who'd later go onto start his own label named after this set, and record famously with Steve Lacy! This group's a trio – with Centazzo on drums and electronics – plus Armando Battison on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest jazz rock albums to come out of the British scene at the end of the 60s – a record that's filled with tight changes, bluesy overtones, and some wonderfully choppy moments – all played by a legendary lineup that includes Terry Smith on guitar, John Healing on organ, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, a split spine, and a name in pen.)
If 2 ... LP Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good ...
The sweet second album from If – a Brit jazz-rock combo with a really great sound! The album was produced by Lew Futterman, the talent behind some of Jack McDuff's large-arrangement albums for Blue Note – and Lew seems to bring in a similar ambitious feel to the set that really brings ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
