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 ... read moreCD

Singles ... CD Drag City, 1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. Used ...
The mighty Mayo Thompson has had some rich experiences in the global music underground – including time on the Texas psych scene of the late 60s, years in the UK post-punk world, a key role in the German intelligentsia, and a later role again here back in the US! This rich tapestry of ... read moreCD
Lou Reed at his mid 70s live peak! Volumes have already been and will continue to be written about Lou's output in the 70s, and rightly so. This set is particularly amazing in that it follows the artful highpoint/financial failure that is Berlin – so Lou is doing the rock & roll star ... read moreCD
A legendary set from The Regents – a blue-eyed vocal group who were every bit as important as The Four Seasons and Beach Boys, even though their legacy never lasted as long! The quintet are in top form here – really more soul than rock and pop, with an approach that's extremely ... read moreCD
The final album by The Replacements – and a nice one, even if it's closer to a debut solo album for Paul Westerberg than it is to the rest of the 'Mats ouvre! This is a classic example of an album with strengths we either refused to acknowledge back in the day as Replacements classicists, or ... read moreCD
Ahhh . . . The young genius of The Replacements! A bit punk, a bit garage, with a heartfelt quality that you didn't always find in indie rock at the time. These rough hewn gems are already as brilliant as they can be – shiny little diamonds that show Westerberg and crew working at top form, ... read moreCD
The masterpiece by one of the greatest genuine rock bands of all time – finally remastered! Let It Be veers all over the place, or at least as much as jangly rock music can, in the best way possible. Includes the pseudo twangy opener "I Will Dare", with the distinctly midwestern ... read moreCD
Tim ... CD Sire, 1985. Used ...
A big crossover classic for the champions of the Minneapolis scene! Titles include "Left Of The Dial", "Little Mascara", "Hold My Life", "I'll Buy", "Kiss Me On The Bus", "Waitress In The Sky", "Swingin Party", and "Here ... read moreCD

(Out of print original pressing. Rear tray card has a fold.)
A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s. Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 ... read moreCD
A definite criss-crossing of Detroit and Memphis modes – as the funky soul of Mitch Ryder gets some hip backings here from Booker T & The MGs! Mitch always had a lot of soul-charged energy in his best early work anyway – but here, he really puts it all on the table – ... read moreCD
Ok, so you were once embarrassed to have this in your collection – and sold it off so your buddies at college wouldn't make fun of you. Now, though, you treasure it as a crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the ... read moreCD
Sadly, it's really easy to dismiss Santana, if only for his having been elevated to iconic status among hippies and classic rock lovers, in spite of the fact that he made a number of great records. This early 70s effort finds him moving in a more jazzy direction, with supple rhythms underpinning ... read moreCD

Shaky ... CD Guild Water, 2015. Used ...
An atmospheric blend of acoustic Spanish pop psychedelia, deconstructed electronic beatcraft and respectful odes to Tropicalia and all purpose avant garde grooves from Prefuse maestro Guillermo Scott Herren's Savath & Savalas! This time out Savath & Savalas has some of the best players on ... read moreCD
The best work yet from Guillermo Scott Herren's most organic venue in his ever expanding world of aural mood mastery – the early 70s South American folk psychedelia inspired trio Savath & Savalas – the group's first album for Stones Throw! Eva Puyuelo Muns brings hushed, lovely ... read moreCD
A early atmospheric effort by Prefuse 73's alter ego. Instruments get mangled softly and gently by machines. The title is very fitting, and it sounds great in headphones, waiting patiently for your airplane to depart. There's guest spots on here by John Herndon and Tim Delaney. Nice. Tracks ... read moreCD
The soundtrack to the Sex Pistols quote/unquote documentary The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle – a crazy mess of Pistols odds, ends and quote/unquote hits – including Sid's crazy-as-hell take on Sinatra, the weird quote/unquote French version of "Anarchy In The UK" and ... read moreCD

Pesmi ... CD Dezela/Atlantide (Germany), 1983. Used ...
A wonderfully moody group from early 80s Slovenia – a trio who have a feel that's a lot like the best British acid folk of a decade before – served up in a really timeless blend of vocals and acoustic instrumentation! Most numbers feature lyrics sung by all three members of the group ... read moreCD
Part of the great 80s run from The Smiths – and a record that has them continuing to grow, continuing to express new ideas – yet still find a way to hang onto all the charm and catchiness that made them so great in the first place! Morrissey's definitely stretching out a bit with his ... read moreCD
