A killer snapshot of Alex Chilton fronting a tight band in a low key club gig at lower Manhattan NYC's Ocean Club in 1977 – sounding really great – covering a wealth of his classic Big Star and Box Tops tunes, along with newer originals and some cool, surprising covers tunes. It's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Chocolate Watch Band —
No Way Out ... CD Capitol/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ...
A mix of spiraling psychedelia and grittier garagey rock from Chocolate Watch Band! No Way Out has a bit more grit than the more mystical follow up LP, but we wouldn't complain about that – the mix of more tripped out organ and atmospheric touches paired with harder hitting, sweaty r&b ... read moreCD

Eric Clapton, John McLaughlin, Roy Buchanan, etc —
Guitar Album ... LP Polydor, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP ...
A cool collection of guitar-based work from Polydor Records in many styles – with work by Roy Buchanan, John McLaughlin, Ellen McIlwaine, Eric Clapton, T-Bone Walker, Link Wray, Stone The Corws, Rory Ghallagher, and Area Code 615! Trippy cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
Possibly Gene's finest hour, with OR without the Byrds. Much of the record is a spare and intimate affair, with Gene's warm vocals accompanied by his own gently picked acoustic guitar, along with producer Jesse Ed Davis (who does a masterful job in the booth on this one) also on guitar. The tunes ... read moreCD
The original 10 inch pressing of this great collection of singles, b-sides and various odds and ends, pulled together in the middle peak of the Clash's career! Black Market Clash holds up incredibly well – it's blazing stuff recorded from '77 to '80 and issued to start that decade. 9 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album from The Clash – ferocious, melodic and masterful bits of barbed greatness from the group – the greatest flaw of which is that it's not the first album. They're still completely great, playing in peak form even with the less shambling, slightly more polished production ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the ... read moreCD
A psych stunner from one of the great groups on Elektra who never made it as far as they should! Titles include "Black Roses", "With All In Mind", "The Ballad Of Freddie & Larry", "Sand", and "Night Sounds Loud". LP, Vinyl record album
About as classic as you can get for the great Eddie Cochran – no surprise, since the album was put together to mourn his untimely early passing, and is filled with some of the best tracks he ever cut for Liberty Records! The music here is Cochran at his prime – that post-country, pre-po ... read moreCD
One of the weirdest moments we've ever heard from early rocker Eddie Cochran – but one of the coolest too! The record has less of the raw rock material that you might know from Eddie's greater fame – and it mixes his core rockabilly modes with some fuller pop backings from Johnny Mann, ... read moreCD
A landmark album from Joe Cocker – and a set that took blue-eyed soul in a whole new direction at the end of the 60s! The album's a surprising stunner all the way through – one that really gets past some of the overdone Cocker cliches that held on a bit too strongly in later years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label pressing. Cover has faded initials in marker.)
We can't imagine the recording engineer sleeping while this set was being recorded – as the sound here is plenty powerful, and this unusual post-prog blend of jazz, rock, and electronic elements! The group features the legendary Gunter Hampel on vibes, piano, and reeds – and Gunter ... read moreCD
A well-remembered set from The Cocteau Twins' sublime 80s run on the 4AD label – a set that was one of the duo's first American titles, culled together from some of their early singles and import EP releases! The song choices are wonderful – some of the most focused, expressive cuts ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful pairing of two of our favorite records ever by this sublime British group – both records that were issued separately as 12" EP releases, but make a perfect pairing as a full length record like this! There's a clarity and focus to the music here that's often missing on other ... 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. An album full of subtle triumphs, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered, and on high-definition 180 gram vinyl!)
One of the best American psych albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, a partially split top seam, and some light staining on the back.)
