Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)
One of Boz Scaggs most soulful albums thanks to production from Johnny Bristol, and arrangements from HB Barnum! Titles include "Slow Dancer", "I Got Your Number", "Hercules", "Take It For Granted", and "Pain Of Love". (Soul, Rock)CD

Conrad Schnitzler —
Con ... CD Paragon/Bureau B (Germany), 1978. New Copy ...
Beautiful early solo work from Conrad Schnitzler – a set that's kind of a distillation of the ideas he brought to Tangerine Dream at the start, but distilled down into much more personal territory, with a very different vibe than the sound of that group at the time! The music is every bit as ... read moreCD

Klaus Schulze —
Next Of Kin ... LP Roundtable (Australia), 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
An obscure Klaus Schulze soundtrack, done for an Australian horror film from the early 80s – all in modes that are a nice condensation of Klaus' longer-form work from the 70s! The tunes here are still heavy on the kind of keyboards that Schulze helped pioneer in Tangerine Dream and his own ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An early album from the sons of Earl Scruggs – less in the rockish mode of later years – and Gary and Randy both sing – with Gary on bass, piano, and organ – and Randy on guitar and banjo. (Folk/Country, Rock)LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best by The Sea & Cake – working in some more diverse elements than some of their later work – but even at this earlyish point, they've got a distinctive style all their own! It kicks off with the rawish, angular rocker "Nature Boy", but as the album goes along ... read moreCD

Sea & Cake —
Oui ... CD Thrill Jockey, 2000. Used ...
Maybe the warmest record by the Sea & Cake – drawing a lot more from their earlier The Biz and Sam Prekop's solo album than their previous The Fawn, adding strings to a lot of the melodies instead of the electronic sounds. Sunny avant pop that manages to pull off a little bit of ... read moreCD
Early work from Jimmy Seals and Dash Crofts – soft rock geniuses who get great production here from John Simon! Titles include "Cotton Mouth", "Tin Town", "Gabriel Go On Home", "Robin", "Hand Me Down Shoe", "Ridin Thumb", and "R ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Sex ... LP Trans Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
The debut album from this heavy Canadian power trio – a group who definitely put themselves on the line with their name – and the weird cover image of them running topless through a field! Fortunately, the sound's a lot less dated than that might make you expect – really hard-wail ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Snide, surly and cathartic genius from the Sex Pistols – a record with a legacy as eternal as any rock album, punk or otherwise – all the more stunning, given it's the band's lone studio album! One classic after another, including "Holidays In The Sun", "Bodies", ... read moreCD

Blue Boy ... CD Interscope/Cooking Vinyl (UK), 2001. Used ...
Classic sounds from the well-named "prince of power pop" – the mighty Phil Seymour, a singer who only gave us a few albums at the start of the 80s – but a singer who really helped to define a generation at the time! Seymour came onto the scene after the initial ripples of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really great record – one our all-time favorites from our early years of crate-digging! Shades of Joy were one of those cool little sixties bands that fell through the cracks – a San Francisco based, racially-mixed jazz group that had rock leanings, but did some neat groovy stuff. ...

Shadows Of Knight —
Gloria ... CD Dunwich/Sundazed, 1966. Used ...
One of the finest rock moments to ever come from the Windy City – a raw, nasty little record that perfectly sums up the Dunwich ethos! Titles include their classic "Gloria" – plus "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "Bad Little Woman", "Hey Joe", ... read moreCD
The weird, raw and legendary debut of teen trio The Shaggs – recorded in a single day and issued by the Third World label back in the day, before slowly building a devoted cult following over the years!

A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Philosophy Of The World album by The Shaggs – the enigmatic trio of Dot, Betty, and Helen Wiggin – three sisters all recorded by their father, who had the foresight to capture their simple but undeniable musical brilliance!

The title's a bit of a clunker, but the record is a great lost charmer from the British scene at the start of the 70s – a set that's filled with well-written, hook-heavy tunes – served up by a quartet who often harmonize along with their instrumentation – all with a warmth that ... read moreCD
Well, Helen Shapiro may not be the hardest rocker on the British scene – but the set does bring together some nice upbeat pop tracks from the 60s – titles that include "Lipstick On Your Collar", "You Don't Know", "Kiss N Run", "Without Your Love", ...

A lost relic from the Ohio scene of the late 70s – important work from the late Jim Shepard, and a record that's every bit as creative and compelling as some of the bigger names to come out of Cleveland or Akron! 7-inch, Vinyl record
The long-lost first album from Shoes – recorded at home, and even rawer than any later releases – appearing here on vinyl for the very first time! The group are already pretty amazing at this early point – right on the money, and almost with more of a punkish vibe at points ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Breakout sounds from Shoes – and an album that may well stand as the group's lasting treasure! The set's got a sharp-edged quality that still sounds pretty tremendous all these many years later – power pop, but without any commercial elements to smooth out its energy – served up ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Three classic albums from Shoes, plus bonus tracks, and a full CD worth of rare material too! First up is Present Tense – a power-pop classic from Shoes – their first full length for Elektra Records, and a set that stands with all the best end of 70s gems from either coast! The songs ... read moreCD
A pivotal moment for Shoes – demo material that pre-dates their classic Present Tense album – pulled from the vaults, and issued here as a wonderful pre-Elektra slice of their career! The tunes were originally cut in the basement of a bridal shop in Northern Illinois – yet ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A power-pop classic from Shoes – their first full length for Elektra Records, and a set that stands with all the best end of 70s gems from either coast! The songs are impeccable, and the group do a fantastic job of blending sharper guitars with really great lyricism – a mode that maybe ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Siegel Schwall Band —
Shake ... CD Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ...
The Siegel Schwall Band are still kicking it hard here – playing with a surprisingly gritty vibe, maybe thanks in part to production from the great Sam Charters – who'd handled so many great blues sessions over the years! But we're guessing that at this point, the group didn't even ... read moreCD
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! The group have an edge here that's sharper than you might expect – maybe in part because the ... read moreCD
The Siegel Schwall Band change things up a bit here – leaving behind the rootsy Sam Charters production of their first few albums for the the heady sound of Dunwich – and picking up just a bit of electric piano and electric bass in the process! The style is still rooted in blues, but ... read moreCD
A really cool lost group on late 60s ABC – a bit psych, a bit bluesy, and forging both into a great hard rock sound at times! The set's got some larger arrangements by producer Bill Szymczyk – a name we don't know, but who also gives the record a superb sound overall! LP, Vinyl record album
Both of the rare original albums by this legendary 60s electronic group – out now on one lovely 18 track CD! The Apples were one of the most unique groups of their era, and they mixed electronics with a throbbing rock groove in a way that not only predicted lots of the musical trends of the ... read moreCD
One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the big Johnny Cash recording of "Boy Named Sue" – and it features Shel singing that famous tune, plus a host of ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreCD
