✨✧ KinksArthur – Or The Decline & Fall Of The British Empire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Essential/Castle (UK), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album. Titles include "Victoria", "Brainwashed", "Australia", "Shangri-La", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Yes Sir No Sir". Plus, the CD includes a huuuuuge amount of bonus cuts – like "Plastic Man", "King Kong", "Mindless Child Of Motherhood", "Mr. Shoemaker's Daughter", and "This Man He Weeps Tonight". CD
(Out of print 1998 pressing with 10 extra bonus tracks!!!)

KinksFace To Face ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good ... $39.99
Excellent work by The Kinks – cut right on the cusp of their earlier bluesier years, and their perfect picture postcard pop sides of the late 60s! The album's got a number of groovy little tunes that virtually put the jangle in 60s pop – with impeccable writing by Ray Davies, and all those little twists and turns that make his songs so great. And the themes, styles, and overall presentation of the whole thing are really stretching out nicely – with a sense of wit and critique on British society that really have the group coming into their own! Titles include "Party Line", "Dandy", "Session Man", "Rainy Day In June", "Most Exclusive Residence For Sale", "Fancy", "You're Lookin Fine", and "Sunny Afternoon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing with 1E matrix. Cover has some wear and aging, seam splits and a small metal grommet.)

✨✧ KinksKinda Kinks ... LP
Reprise, 1965. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 would shake a bit more in later years, but which here comes to light in a really good way – mixing up some rootsy energy with the jangly guitar lines that the Kinks used to shade in their grooves. Titles include the classic "So Tired Of Waiting" – plus "Come On Now", "So Long", "Something Better Beginning", "Come On Now", "Nothing In The World That Can Stop Me Worryin Bout That Girl", and "Look For Me Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo tri-color label pressing. Cover has split seams held with tape, light surface wear, and some aging.)

✨✧ KinksKinks Part 1 – Lola Versus Powerman & The Moneygoround ... LP
Pye/BMG, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An album that maybe marked the close of one chapter of The Kinks, and the start of another – music that still holds on to some of the best elements of their late 60s Village Green era, but which also moves the group into some of the headier territory of their Muswell Hill/RCA years too! Ray Davies has never sounded more earnest – still able to pull off wit when needed, but also more down to earth – and because of the massive title hit, the set was also one that put the group in front of the ears or more folks than had been hearing them in previous years. Titles include, of course, the mega-hit "Lola" – plus "This Time Tomorrow", "Apeman", "Strangers", "The Contenders", "Long Way From Home", "Rats", and "Top Of The Pops". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KinksLow Budget ... LP
Arista, 1979. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real standout in the later catalog of the Kinks – a record that gave the group a number of minor hits, and which let them rock out a bit more than usual – in a style that was clearly influenced by the punk of the period, but which also had sort of a Pete Townsend-esque quality to it. Titles include "Superman", "Catch Me Now I'm Falling", "National Health", "Pressure", "Misery", "A Little Bit Of Emotion", and "Attitude". LP, Vinyl record album

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 approaches of their initial 70s recordings – and coming up with a few really catchy numbers in the process! Titles include "Sleepwalker", "Sleepless Night", "Brother", "Full Moon", "Life Goes On", "Stormy Sky", and "Mr Big Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KinksSoap Opera ... LP
RCA, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the highest-concept of all 70s Kinks album – a dark exploration of fame and the price of success, done as a mini-rock opera starring Norman & The Starmaker! As with some of these sets, the best tunes here are those that are the most subtle and less dramatic – and which revisit the more everyday themes of the group's Village Green years. Other tracks are a bit more showy and gimmicky, in a way that almost makes you feel silly for caring about the subject matter – even though Ray Davies's vision of the issues at hand is still as biting as ever. A few standout tracks move into straighter rocking territory, but without the kitsch of some of the other "oldies" styled numbers – and titles include "Holiday Romance", "Everybody's A Star", "Rush Hour Blues", "Nine To Five", "When Work Is Over", "Ducks On The Wall", "You Can't Stop The Music", and "Face In The Crowd".

✨✧ David BowieDavid Bowie (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Deram/Universal, 1967. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Genius, pure genius from a young David Bowie – an album that we've always treasured as much as Ziggy Stardust! This set's pre-Hunky Dory, pre-Space Oddity – and it's an amazing little record that's almost completely devoid of guitars – instead using weird woodwinds (lots of oboe!), soaring strings, and offbeat orchestrations to carry off the tunes – all of which are as weird, mad, and wonderful as anything Bowie wrote in later years! The subject matter of the songs is almost a dark reflection of the picture postcard England that you'd find in work by The Kinks – the local pederast, weird guy who lives with his mum, old military geezer who can't get out of the past, cross-dressing soldiers, a gravedigger about to meet his death, and hip Londoners gallivanting all over town – all delivered with a sharpness that's stunning. We honestly think the record is flawless – incredibly complicated instrumentally, but incredibly groovy too – with all the edge you'll always love in Bowie, but in a fresh young flavor too. Years back, as young Bowie-heads, we always passed this one by – assuming it was unformed early roughness – but it's not, and is an incredible album that would have been more than enough for any other artist to build a career on. Includes "Uncle Arthur", "Sell Me A Coat", "Rubber Band", "Love You Till Tuesday", "There Is A Happy Land", "When I Live My Dream", and more. This loaded 2CD deluxe edition includes both the stereo and mono album mixes in full, plus a slew or singles, unreleased stereo mixes and unreleased tracks like the bootleg classic "London Bye Ta-Ta" and 5 tracks recorded for a '67 John Peel show.

✨✧ Ray Davies & The Button Down BrassThemes From The Exorcist, The French Connection, The Sting, & Other Great Films/Flashpoint (SACD multi-channel disc) ... CD
Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin – but served up here by Ray's Button Down Brass in a very cool style – compressed funk, ala the best crime/cop modes of the time – but with lots of individual touches that make the songs very different than the original versions! Titles include "Point Blank", "Enter The Dragon", "Klute", "French Connection", "Tubular Bells", "Cops & Robbers", and "Beyond Tomorrow". Flashpoint continues with some great film themes again served up in the magic Ray Davies mode – a funky big band approach that makes the record every bit as compelling as the American Cop Shows album from Henry Mancini – but maybe groovier, too. Titles include "Kojak", "Big Boss", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Mr Majestyk", "Magnum Force", "Fist Of Fury", and "Airport 1975". CD
(Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing – also works in standard players!)

FlockFlock ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Sealed ... $23.99
Far-reaching sounds from The Flock – a group who were maybe one of the best American acts at the end of the 60s to blend trippy rock with the big new wave of jazz fusion! These guys definitely use horns in a way that link them to the chunky groove of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat & Tears – but they're also clearly going for a more long-haired vibe, too – especially when they open up on some acoustic stringed instrumentation – such as 12-string guitar or violin, both of which are handled by Jerry Goodman in a really great way! These instruments really shape some of the sound of the set – especially the violin when it's used in these freewheeling passages that might give Jean-Luc Ponty a run for his money – but there's also a core, tight soulful sound that balances things out nicely – as does some of the heavy drums and fuzzy guitar! Titles include "Clown", "I Am The Tall Tree", "Store Bought Store Thought", and "Truth" – plus a very cool funky cover of The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 70s pressing! Cover has a small cutout mark.)

Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A pair of albums by The Flock – with bonus tracks too! First up is the group's self-titled debut – far-reaching sounds from The Flock – a group who were maybe one of the best American acts at the end of the 60s to blend trippy rock with the big new wave of jazz fusion! These guys definitely use horns in a way that link them to the chunky groove of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat & Tears – but they're also clearly going for a more long-haired vibe, too – especially when they open up on some acoustic stringed instrumentation – such as 12-string guitar or violin, both of which are handled by Jerry Goodman in a really great way!

Titles include "Clown", "I Am The Tall Tree", "Store Bought Store Thought", and "Truth" – plus a very cool funky cover of The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting". Dinosaur Swamps has a slightly different sound than previously from The Flock – a set that brings in some sweet Hammond organ to the group's mix of jazzy horns and freewheeling guitar and violin – all in a way that even makes the whole thing better than before! The organ is never too jamming, but used at times to give the music a subtle majesty – and at other times to maybe percolate a bit more soul – while the previous instrumentation on guitar, violin, trumpet, and saxes is only even better than before – really setting these guys apart with one of the most unique visions in American jazz rock – especially when they maybe hit a few other musical roots too. Titles include "Green Slice", "Big Bird", "Hornschmeyer's Island", "Crabfoot", "Mermaid", and "Uranian Sircus". 2CD set features lots of bonus tracks – including "Afrika", "Just Do It", "Clown (part 1 & 2)", "What Would You Do If The Sun Died", "Lollipops & Rainbows", "Chanja", and "Atlantians Truckin Home".

Bruno MacDonaldGreatest Albums You'll Never Hear – Unreleased Records By The World's Greatest Musicians (hardcover) ... Book
Aurum (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 28.00
A really cool look at albums that never happened – planned projects that were almost produced, but which fell apart at some point in the creative process – leading to a surprisingly large legacy of lost albums by some of rock music's biggest stars! Sure, everyone knows a few of these – like The Beach Boys' Smile – but this book opens the door to lots lots more – including projects by The Kinks, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Buffalo Springfield, Madonna, The Sex Pistols, Beastie Boys, and many more. Best of all, the book presents the albums almost as if they actually existed – in short sections within larger chapters that each feature an imagined cover, projected release dates, and a short section that tells the story of the record – which often features a "what happened next" sidebar to show where the creative process landed. The great presentation really helps illuminate the material – and the book is 256 pages, in color throughout. Book

Sly & The Family StoneAin't But the One Way ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... $24.99
The last major album from Sly Stone – and a great little set that's still very much at the top of his funky soul game! The groove's a bit different than early Family Stone years, but still has a collaborative funky feel that's so much stronger than some of the stiffer efforts on the market at the time – proof that doing things with the right sort of live and lively energy still beats a whole roomful of drum machines and keyboards! Stone's got a way of providing these slinky inflections on his lyrics – sexing up the grooves even more than the instrumentation – and backing from straighter soul singers hole things in place with an old school vibe. Bobby Lyle plays a bit of keyboards on the set – and titles include "Who In the Funk Do You Think You Are", "Sylvester", "We Can Do It", "LOVINU", "One Way", and "High Y'All" – plus one of weirder covers of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" you're ever likely to hear!

One of the coolest compilation soundtracks you'll ever hope to own – filled with ultra-cool rock tracks hand-picked by director Wes Anderson, as well as some original material from Mark Mothersbaugh too! Anderson really re-wrote the game for rock track film scores with this one – and continued with his other movie work to come – and the set's got loads of great gems that include "A Quick One" by The Who, "Rue St Vincent" by Yves Montand, "Concrete & Clay" by Unit 4 + 2, "Making Time" by The Creation, "Summer Song" by Chad & Jeremy, "The Wind" by Cat Stevens, "Blinuet" by Zoot Sims, "Ooh La La" by The Faces, and "Nothing In This World Can Stop Me Worrin Bout That Girl" by The Kinks. Also features original Motherbaugh material – "Margaret Yang's Theme", "Piranahas Are A Very Tricky Species", "Sharp Little Guy", and "Edward Appleby". CD
