100 Ton Chicken ... LP Blue Horizon/Music On Vinyl, 1969. Near Mint- (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
A mix of spiraling psychedelia and grittier garagey rock from Chocolate Watch Band!

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 ... read moreCD
Never a stereotype, Cibo Matto was a pretty trailblazing act from the start – and their underrated late 90s swan song (for quite a while) Stereo Type A is a major reminder of that – blending genres and breaking barriers as strongly as ever! It's a brilliant mix of styles, from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Possibly Gene's finest hour, with OR without the Byrds.

The tunes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The second album from Leonard Cohen – a more stripped down effort produced by Bob Johnston, with some really odd washes of sound on the outer edges of the sound – adding some slightly uneasy atmosphere that's paired masterfully with Cohen's moody pen.
