Over two dozen tracks by The Dee Jays – one of those cool 60s groups who were born in London, but hit much bigger fame in another European country! In this case, the place was Sweden – where the group moved in the mid 60s, and immediately captured a big audience who were hungry for the ... read moreCD
The only 70s album ever issued by guitarist Rick Deitrick – a set that was produced in a very small print run of copies – which were then sold at shows and in a few special record stores, and also left by Deitrick on woodland trails – in the hopes that hikers might stumble upon ...

Beautiful solo guitar work from Rick Deitrick – a very underground figure in the already-underground world of acoustic material in the late 70s! Deitrick's maybe one of the most understated of his contemporaries – less experimental than John Fahey or Robbie Basho, and often working ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Delaney & Bonnie —
Home ... LP Stax, 1969. Very Good ...
Roots rock but with a strongly soulful undercurrent – thanks to key late 60s Stax production from Donald Duck Dunn and Don Nix, both of whom make the record sound a lot hipper than many other similar sets from the time! The record showcases the singing and songwriting talents of Delaney and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The icy cool second album from German avant electronics gurus Der Plan – a great batch of raw electro pop from the nascent new wave of the German scene! Some of the darker touches of the earlier album give way to some quirkier grooves here – with tunes that largely carry a skewed pop ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

By 1981, the gentlemen Devo had been up to their collective arse in irony since the early 70s, and having made a sizable fortune for the Brothers' Warner with the ultra-ironic "Whip It" the previous year, they took a sharp right turn into cranky sincerity. They did so on a wave of new ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, includes inner sleeve but missing poster & 7-inch.)
"Barrows Blues" has this really unusual groove – a mix of folksy guitar and saxophone, tied together in this choppy funk intro to the tune – which John then sings over with this style that's as evocative as the instrumentation! "High & Dry" continues the folk ... (Funky 45's, Rock)read more7-inch, Vinyl record
Mookish bombast from The Dictactors – heavy rock, fist clenching anthems, poker-faced parodies of love songs and keyboard peppered songs about a body covered in scabs. No sir, there will never be another Dictators! These guys should have been on kid's lunchboxes and Kiss should been dropped ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A mellow masterpiece of sunshine country rock from Dillard & Clark – a duo that featured Gene Clark of the Byrds and Doug Dillard of the Dillards – in a wonderful blend of Cali longhair harmonies, back porch psych, and expert Byrds-y tunefulness! Dillard provides lots of great ... read moreCD
The amazing second album from the great duo of Gene Clark and Doug Dillard – and a record that's maybe even better than the first! Even though the set's a key part of the late 60s Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers legacy – the vibe is probably more like the latter than the former ... read moreCD
An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the ...

A spacey disco classic! "Go Bang" is a wonderful tune – with a jaunty vocal refrain that's laid over some off-kilter keyboard rhythms infused with bass. Arthur Russell produced and Francois K mixed – and this great vinyl single features the complete cut – Part 1 on one ... (Funky 45's, Rock)read more7-inch, Vinyl record
The second of Dio's twin masterpieces – a second album knockout that followed Holy Diver by a single year! The biggest difference this time out is the addition of full time keyboard player Claude Schnell to the band, making Dio a quintet – but what the keyboards do NOT do is air out the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Mindblowing punk and free jazz collision from Dissipated Face – with alto sax behemoth Daniel Carter blowing fiercely out front – a fast, brutal, yet defiantly musical quartet of songs recorded live in 1986 at the legendary Bowery club!

You've heard Domenico before as part of the groundbreaking +2 trio with Kassin and Moreno Veloso – but this is only the second time the singer has worked on his own, and the first that he's given us his full name on the cover!

Ral Donner definitely takes care of business on this sublime early album for the Gone label – singing in a style that's much more deep-voiced and expressive than you might guess from his look on the cover! Ral's going farther than teen pop here, and almost brings out some sneering moods from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful complement to the Donovan studio albums from the late 60s – a well-recorded live date from the US. The style of the tunes is a bit different than some of their more famous album and single versions – with a relaxed approach to the work that leans a bit more on some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Easily one of the headiest Donovan albums of the 60s – a record that moves past the simple psychedelic pop of earlier hits, and into a range of mind-expanding themes and styles! There's a cerebral quality here that seems to take hold even on the simpler, catchier tunes – a deeply ... read moreCD

Easily one of Donovan's most successful albums – but also a brilliant blend of folk and jazz that forged a bold new sound in the 60s! Part of the strength of the set comes from arranger John Cameron – an artist that we love for his jazz and easy work of the late 60s, and who's working ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Dr Hook were always one of the weirder groups in mainstream rock during the 70s – a group who were maybe founded in roots rock modes, but who often had a funky current in their rhythms – and this very weird blend of catchy tunes and the offbeat lead vocals of Ray Sawyer! The sound's a ... read moreCD
Mac really steps out on this one – pushing past his usual hip studio take on New Orleans soul, to a more expansive style that includes performances by a host of surprise guests like Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, PP Arnold, Graham Bond, and Doris Troy.

Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career.
