Soaring sounds from SBB – an all-instrumental session for Polish Radio, and one that really shows off the more fusion-heavy side of their music! All tracks are nice and long – and there's more of a power trio formation in the group – really freewheeling guitar lines that are ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A never-heard live set from the rock/fusion trio that shook the world from behind the Iron Curtain in the 70s – a mostly-instrumental performance recorded for Polish Radio in 1977! We say "mostly", because keyboardist Jozef Skrzek uses some occasional mouth organ next to his usual ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Boz Scaggs ... LP Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
The first-ever solo set from the great Boz Scaggs – done after a few key early performances with The Steve Miller Band – and with a style that's even more soulful than some of Scaggs' later work!

My Time ... LP Columbia, 1972. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
Boz Scaggs at the height of his early powers – still very much in the best blue-eyed soul style that first got him noticed by CBS, but also working with a stronger, richer, prouder sound that's really great! A number of the tracks on the set were recorded in Muscle Shoals, with superb small ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most experimental records we've heard from the prog era – and that's saying a lot, given the contemporary vibe of the time! Gunter Schickert here creates a marvelous blend of guitar sounds and space – even more stretched out and sonically-directed than any of the work on the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An 80s electro-pop classic from Peter Schilling – one of a handful of German artists who managed to crack the record racks over here at the time – thanks to his strong use of English language on most of the tracks, and his classic "Major Tom" track, which was a nice reference ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Conrad Schnitzler —
Gold ... LP Marginal Talent/Bureau B (Germany), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ...
Beautiful sound textures from Conrad Schnitzler – even more personal and more evocative than work by most of his contemporaries!

The Sea And Cake as fresh and breezy as ever! It's almost hard to believe, but Any Day marks the 25th years of The Sea And Cake – intermittently throughout that time span, anyway – and one of the most consistently brilliant runs in indie rock. They've always had an easygoing melodic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl pressing limited to indie stores. Includes download.)
The Sea & Cake's most instantly addictive album in years – one that blends the more anthemic style of their recent work with some bubbling synthy grooves! The group is nothing if not consistent, and they don't radically rework the set structure – with Sam Prekop's effervescent, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the breeziest breaths of fresh air in mid 90s inide rock!

Watch ... CD Warner, 1973. New Copy ...
Maybe one of the most classic albums from Seatrain – and a set that definitely shows their huge progression from roots in The Blues Project, to their transformation into more of a roots rock band on the Marin County scene! In a way, the record's almost a west coast take on territory The Band ... read moreCD
A lost bit of prog from the UK scene of the 70s – an obscure record that appeared right before the birth of punk, but which carries plenty more echoes of the generation before – especially in the way the hard-jamming guitars can really take off on a riff and fly into a frenzy! The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A Brazilian rock classic! The band had a very sophisticated sound that mixes nice vocal production with spare arrangements supported by guitar, piano, and bass.

Great early work from The Secrets – a UK group that features early contributions from later singer/songwriter Clifford T Ward – but in a style that's much more group-oriented overall! Ward's already a hell of a songwriter – and loads of the cuts here are under-discovered nuggets ... read moreCD
A really cool record from one of our favorite groups on Factory Records – a set when they were moving more into electronic and dance-oriented styles, but also working in a bit of their older psych elements too – maybe a vibe that's a precursor of some Creation and Manchester modes to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A groundbreaking debut from The Seeds – one of those albums that seemed to come out of nowhere back in the 60s, then went onto have an undeniable influence on music for decades to come!

(70s stereo pressing with 14630 matrix, still in the shrink.)
A hipper take on the Mike Seeger sound than his 60s records – and a set that nicely folds in all the contemporary elements that had been floating around in the younger appreciation of roots music.

A fantastic early side of work from 70s superstar Bob Seger – and one that comes as quite a surprise, compared to his hits!

Haze ... CD Big Crown, 2018. Used 2CD ...
The Shacks really seem to have found their sound here – balancing the sometimes-sweet vocals of Shannon Wise with a grittier edge in the music – not entirely garagey, but also never too overproduced! There's almost an 80s indie vibe going on here in the presentation – a group who ... read moreCD
A fuzzy, freaked-out classic from one of the coolest groups to work on the Chicago scene of the 60s – the mighty Shadows Of Knight, easily one of the best garage acts of their time!

Nachtfalter ... LP Bureau B (Germany), 2018. New Copy (reissue)...

The album's named after a moth, who drifted into the studio during ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Live material from Chicago's Siegel Schwall Band – recorded in small clubs in the Midwest, very much the sort of venues from which they sprang! There's as much of a no-nonsense vibe going on here as on their studio albums, and maybe even a bit more grit overall – especially on the ... read moreCD
Early work from Chicago's Siegel Schwall Band – one of the better blue-eyed blues groups to ever come out of the Windy City!

The debut album from a group who became a seminal bridge on the Chicago scene in the 60s – a blue-eyed blues quartet who got their start on the south side, then helped bring the music up north!

Both of the rare original albums by this legendary 60s electronic group – out now on one lovely 18 track CD!
