A rare album from Hollywood studio musicians turned garage rock heroes Davie Allan & The Arrows! This is another of their Nugget-fueling efforts with short, short cuts blazing with fuzzy-as-hell guitars, rumbling drums and thumping bass – rolling along with fluid, thematic lead guitar ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has minor splitting in the top and bottom seams.)
The Allman Brothers at their best – and a key 70s set that may well have the group working at their peak! All their best southern roots are firmly tied together here – not just the country-touched approach to rock that was the group's calling card, but also their ties to some of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Allman Brothers —
Eat A Peach ... LP Capricorn, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
A landmark in southern rock! Titles include "Les Brers In A Minor", "Melissa", "Mountain Jam", "One Way Out", "Trouble No More", "Little Martha", and "Blue Sky". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, including the insert. Cover has light surface wear.)
Early work from Ted Nugent – working here as the searing lead guitarist of the mighty Amboy Dukes! The Nuge doesn't sing on the set, but his guitar is definitely in the spotlight on most numbers – ripping out with a rawness that beats his later superstar work, and which is free to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original UK pressing with uncensored version of "Animal". Cover has a vintage price sticker on back.)
Aorta ... LP Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ...
A lost heavy rock classic from the Dunwich Production team – recorded in Michigan, but with extra orchestral backing in Chicago – for an approach that gives the record a slightly pop quality that tempers the harder rock sound nicely. The songs are actually pretty catchy, in a post-Summe ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing with 1B/1B matrix. Cover has light wear with a light horizontal crease along.)
Mid 60s concept pop from Appletree Theatre – a mix of unpredictable baroque pop, soaring string laden tunes, and more stripped down and moody numbers – and programmed as acts, in keeping with the theatre mode! What's most impressive, other than the tuneful songcraft, is that it never ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo Verve Forecast pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)
A groovy groovy soundtrack that contains one of the Association's greatest songs! "Goodbye Columbus" may not be as famous as some of their bigger hits – but we love it to death, and it's the kind of catchy groover they'll find us singing in the coffin long after we've passed away! ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a hole in front from sticker removal. Cover has a cut corner.)
A wonderful album from the eternally underrated Hoyt Axton – whose rich, folksy lead vocals are given some fairly soaring arrangements on tunes that range from topical but not quite protest folk material to some trippier, chemically enhanced narratives! Hoyt's got the kind of easygoing, ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed vintage stereo pressing! Cover has some wear near the bottom, where a bit of the shrinkwrap is missing with a scuff on the cover.)
A hard-jamming bit of jazz rock – with lots of free solo work on alto and soprano sax by Ron Aspery, and a pretty strong power-trio instrumental format from Tony Hicks on drums and Colin Hodgkinson on bass. The album's more jamming than it is funky, but there's some pretty great playing on ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker in the top left corner.)
The kind of overlooked, understated gem that should have put Badfinger at the top of the charts in the mid 70s – a record of impeccable songwriting, really great production, and a refinement of an earlier musical ideal that really points the way forward – all while avoiding most of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing with A2/B2 matrix. Cover has an unglued bottom seam.)
Supreme love fest in action – and Brian's back at the production helm. Proof that therapy has some effect on the world – and with the tracks "Roller Skating Child", "Good Time", "Johnny Carson", "Night Was So Young", and "Airplane". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch and light edge wear.)
Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US Apple pressing, with B30/B28 #3 matrix in an uncropped cover without "Her Majesty".)
A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together! There's great hints ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red Apple label pressing. Cover has ring and edge wear.)
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing with W7/X10 #54 matrix. Cover has light wear.)
Live concert recording at The Hollywood Bowl in 1964. LP, Vinyl record album
Beau Brummels —
Triangle ... LP Warner, 1967. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
A tremendous album from The Beau Brummels – one of the lesser-remembered groups from the late 60s Warner hipster heyday! At some level, the group's a folk-rock outfit – with the left-of-center feel of some of Fred Neil's best work for Capitol, and a similar blend of east coast honesty ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing! Cover has a cutout hole, and some light water staining in a bottom corner – but is nice overall.)
The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
