One hit wonders – but oh what a hit! Friend & Lover's "Reach Out Of The Darkness" is a really unique little tune that brings together folksy vocals and funky rhythms – a solid jammer that brushed off the cobwebs of the aging folk scene of the 60s, and sprung into the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rock record, at least from the vocal standpoint – but a set that's also got a very strong grounding in jazz – thanks to a lineup that includes Jason Adasewicz on vibes, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Jason Roebke on bass! Steve Dawson is in the lead on vocals – and has a raspy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A record that some might call the last truly great Peter Gabriel album – and a key cap to his excellent initial solo run! The album's got a deeper feel than before – slightly richer colors, more spiritual themes, and arguably more of a sense of majesty – almost an echo of some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Galaxie 500 —
On Fire ... LP 20/20/20, 1989. New Copy (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
The second of 3 great albums by in the short but massively influential career of Galaxie 500 – the members of whom would go on the pretty successful careers in other groups, but it's hard to imagine how those records can be better remembered than gems like On Fire! Dean Wareham had really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The last and possibly the best album by Galaxie 500! The group's ether-like melodies, reverb atmosphere and plaintive vocals are at their best on This Is Our Music – a high water mark of late 80s/early 90s US indie rock and genuine precursor to later shoegaze sounds that would make bigger, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
This one's actually the group's sort of second album – at least in the US – with 4 tracks that really follow nicely in the feel of Entertainment! Tracks were recorded between 1978 and 1980 – and all have a nice raw guitar sound. Includes the massive "Armalite Rifle", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A perfectly balanced little set from Gentle Giant – a record that's progressive, but never overly jamming – jazzy, but still rock-based enough to contain some great straight ahead tunes – and whimsical, but never too flowery or hippy dippy! Gentle Giant were one of the few who ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

George-Edwards Group —
38:38 ... LP Drag City, 1977. Near Mint- (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
38 minutes and 38 seconds of rare late 70s psyche folk brilliance and cosmic songcraft from the George-Edwards Group – originally a private pressed LP that's pretty much unlike anything else from the time – uncommonly tuneful material made with far out components! Raymond M George & ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stunning document of early solo work from the great Robin Gibb – one full album, one never-issued album, and lots of bonus tracks too – a massive 3CD package with 63 tracks in all, 46 of which are previously unreleased! First up is the Robin's Reign album – a wonderful early ... read moreCD
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The excellent first album by Goldfrapp! Alison Goldfrapp's voice had earlier added gorgeous, otherworldly color and texture to records by Tricky, Orbital and others – and her debut full length collaboration with Will Gregory as the band Goldfrapp really stands the test of time – and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Early 70s space rock from Golem – epically paced, trippy, expertly done wigged out instrumental rock that was purportedly laid down by heavies from the soon-to-be legendary krautrock scene working pseudonymously after hours in the studio! The album's a bit of an enigma – a set that's ... read moreCD
One of the best ever albums by Leslie Gore – full of sweet natured girl pop songcraft that's on par with her biggest hit singles – but with an underlying sadness and overall emotional depth that's underappreciated to this day! It might not be as monumental as, say Pet Sounds, but we ... read moreCD
A wonderful early album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's got a lot more to offer than just the famous title track! Lesley's just a young gal at this time, but she sings in this lusty, personal style that's a lot richer than most female pop of the period – and which also shows the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
There's nothing mixed up about this great little record – as Lesley Gore comes across with a solid, mature approach that's quite surprising, given her teenage years at the time – a quality that makes the album a lot deeper than just the usual throwaway pop of the time! Gore's not yet ... read moreCD
