An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Timeless rock & roll from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – an indie rock pioneer who simply doesn't get the credit she deserves for shattering the glass ceiling for both women and independent souls in mainstream rock in the early 80s! Includes the hit title track and her cool cover of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Elton back when he was genius, and unlike anyone else – with titles that include "Ballad Of A Well Known Gun", "Son Of Your Father", "Burn Down The Mountain", "Love Song", and "Where To Now St Peter". LP, Vinyl record album
The stellar solo debut of Janis Joplin – fronting her own Kozmic Blues Band after the break from Big Brother!

(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has the title sticker and an unglued bottom seam.)
Janis Joplin —
Pearl ... LP Columbia, 1971. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
The sound of a legend – a raw rocking classic from Janis Joplin – arguably the most perfectly-formed record from her all-too-short run in modern music! There's a focus here that's even sharper than before – and a rising of the funky undercurrents that Janis always had in her ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Joy Division —
Still ... LP Factory, Early 80s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
The last full chapter in the legacy of Joy Division – an album that ws issued in the wake of the untimely early death of Ian Curtis – a special double-length set that brought together all the unreleased material at the time! The package features a number of tracks that the group were ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Portuguese pressing in the gatefold "folder" cover.)
A naked guy, holding a Commodore computer – a image that gives you a very good idea of what to expect here! The songs are all instrumentals, made on the Commdore at a time when that computer was one of the hottest things going – and they're all sexy, slinky numbers that move between ... (Sound Library, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Unreleased sounds from electronic genius Ariel Kalma – and a package that only further deepens our respect for his music!

(Out Sound, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Jorma Kaukonen With Tom Hobson —
Quah ... LP Grunt, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ...
The mid 70s solo record by Jorma Kaukonen – the legendary guitarist for Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna – and a really great, sort of back to basics acoustic set! In direct contrast to some of the more bombastic rock coming out of the Jefferson Airplane camp in the early 70s, those one ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great great work from Keith – one of those overlooked pop talents of the 60s, but one who really came across with a great sound at the time – kind of a mix of Burt Bacharach arrangements with a pop psych sort of edge! The tunes are sweet, but swinging too – and Keith's got this ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing with deep groove.)
Paul Kelly & The Messengers —
Gossip ... LP A&M, 1987. Very Good- ...
... LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)
Take the title here a bit ironically – as the music is this unusual Korean take on reggae rhythms – maybe more an inspiration from Kingston, filtered through a maturing K-Pop style of the time – although often with some of the qualities that came about when dubbier rhythms were ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorites by King Crimson – and a record with a lot more jazz than some of their others! Players include Mel Collins on lots of flutes and saxes – plus guests Keith Tippett on piano, Mark Charig on cornet, and Harry Miller on bass! LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label Broadway pressing. Cover has light wear and some staining.)
King Crimson —
Lizard ... LP Atlantic, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ...
An overlooked gem from The Kinks – a set that's got all the wit of their late 60s material, a bit of the rootsy currents of Muswell Hillbillies, and a lot more bite than the group would have in some of their next few albums to come! Ray Davies' pen is razor-sharp, as is his vocal approach ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A real standout from Ray Davies and crew – heavy-hitting here with guitars that seem a bit more amped up than usual, and a slight post-punkish groove that's almost a reinvention of the group's sound for an 80s new wave market! The album's a surprisingly hard rocker in parts, and has a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a lightly bent corner.)
It's hard to go wrong with The Kinks at this point in their career – a time when even at their most basic, the group had something special that set them apart from most of their contemporaries! There's a definite bluesy undercurrent to most of the music here – an aspect that Ray Davies ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and a cutout grommet.)
A nice transition from the overwrought concept albums of mid 70s Kinks – and a shift into tighter, shorter, more condensed tunes that got the group firmly back on track! The concepts here are each confined to the space of a single tune – taking Ray and the group back to the best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Mindblowing music from the legendary Basil Kirchin – a British composer who started out doing more conventional soundtrack material in the decade before – but who here is making music from a range of sonic sources that include both regular instruments and extrapolated sounds from nature! ... (Sound Library, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest power pop albums ever recorded – a blistering batch of tight little rocking tunes that took pop music back to basics at the end of the 70s! The group have an almost Beatles-esque flair for the short catchy tune – but have also pumped up things nicely with a smoothly ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A classic bit of spare electronics from the Kraftwerk man machine! The album's perhaps a bit tighter than some of their earlier albums, but it's also got that spare tinny sound that influenced a generation of hip hoppers, electro heads, and Miami bass stars. Titles include "Computer ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light surface wear and a lightly bent corner.)
Mira Kubasinska & Breakout —
Ogien ... LP Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1973. New Copy (reissue)...
A sweet solo album from Polish singer Mira Kubasinska – but one that still features plenty of contributions from Breakout – the heavy, fuzzy group in which she spent most of the 70s! Mira's more strongly in the lead than on the other records by that group, though – really soaring ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Robb Kunkel —
Abyss ... LP Tumbleweed/Future Days/Light In The Attic, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
An album that maybe doesn't really fit its title – as the sound here is so warm and enveloping, it hardly feels like stepping into the abyss! Instead, Robb Kunkel works in this cool variant of country rock modes – not the more straightforward styles of the LA scene, but more personal, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the coolest records to come from the British scene in the 70s – a very unique offering from Canterbury poet and singer June Campbell Cramer – done in very close collaboration with the great Kevin Ayers! The style here is near some of Ayers' own recordings, but a lot more far-out ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of 2 Lamb albums for Warner Bros in 1971 – this one co-billed with singer Barbara Mauritz – who's gospel and soul reverent lead vocals do indeed standout out on this far-reaching San Francisco scene gem! It's an unpredictable mix of somewhat delicate folk rock and more extroverted ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a tracklist sticker and some wear.)
One of the grooviest Mexican groups of the 60s – a combo who mix together beat, garage, and psychedelic sounds with a really wonderful feel – much more like some of the Argentine and Peruvian combos who've been getting more exposure these days! There's definitely an American rock ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The nicely fleshed out, 2LP version of the debut EP by Laughing Hyenas – some of the fiercest underground rock ever to come out of the state of Michigan! Even at this early point, there's a brooding, postpunk bluesy vibe at times, but the most fiery quality here is John Brannon's vocals ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered by Bob Weston and featuring previously unseen photos, flyer facsimiles and more!)
The first proper LP by Laughing Hyenas with a rawer, more raging vibe than later records! This along with the earlier EP that was expanded and re-released as Merry Ground a little later captures the band at their fiercest, capable of the more measured punk blues sound they'd be more celebrated for ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Atle Lauve —
Atle Lauve ... LP Preservation (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ...
