Haunted ... LP Trans World/Return To Analog (Canada), 1967. New Copy (reissue)...
A fantastic bit of garage rock from the Montreal scene of the late 60s – served up by a group with a sound that's as searing as anything playing on the Sunset Strip at the time! These guys use just the right amount of fuzz – never too much to fall into psych territory, and perfectly ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Lee Hazlewood is looking a bit nervous on the cover – very different than the swaggering bravado of his mustachioed fame of the late 60s – which is quite fitting, given that these tracks were all recorded very early in his career! The collection presents the debut of a set of early ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful early 70s psych folk set from the angelic vocal and songwriting duo of Pat Gefell and Jo D Andrews – their Refuge album for Ovation in 1973 – highlighted by their gorgeous vocals, but committed with lovely, lightly soaring arrangements! Save for a solid cover of the Elton ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)
Some of the fullest, freakiest sounds we've ever heard from Karl Hector & The Malcouns – and a set that almost has the contemporary combo resonating with some of the older psych and fuzz that often gets reissued on the Now Again label! JJ Whitefield – of Whitefield Brothers/Poets ... (Deep Funk, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... (Deep Funk, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The great live compilation of classic Hendrix – pulled from incendiary performances at Isle Of Wight in 1970 and other benchmark west coast gigs from '68 to '70! It's as fine of a snapshot of Jimi as you could really hope for, as it features numbers that showcase his fiery blues psych side ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Recent 180 gram Legacy pressing. Includes booklet.)
A massive amount of music that definitely lives up to its title – not the debut album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but instead 8LP's worth of rare music, both live and studio – more than enough to deeply enrich your experience of the music of Jimi Hendrix! The package is a real ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas —
Telephone ... LP Instant, 2017. Near Mint- ...
Spare soundscapes from Japanese keyboardist Yutaka Hirose – mostly composed on a variety of electronic instruments, but with a vibe that's very natural and organic overall! The music is very slow-moving, and unfolds at a quiet pace – all definitely in the tradition of the best Ambient ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Bus Stop from 1966 finds the group working a fairly raucous, but still pretty sweet Brit rock mode. A more of a straight forward rockin' vibe and the tracks include "Bus Stop", "Candy Man", "Baby That's All", "I Am A Rock", "Sweet Little Sixteen", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has light wear and some aging.)
Wonderful work from The Hollies – from a time when the group was moving way past simple Brit Invasion pop – as you 'can probably guess from the cover and title!

(180 gram Spanish Guersen pressing in a backflapped cover. Includes insert.)
An amazing little record – easily one of the coolest albums ever on the legendary Ovation label – and a set that has the small imprint almost hitting the heights of their Chicago neighbor Cadet Records!

Ernest Hood —
Neighborhoods ... LP Freedom To Spend/Rvng Intl, 1975. New Copy 2LP (reissue)...
A strange little record from Ernest Hood – a project that he bills as "musical cinematography" – which is maybe a good way to start in thinking about the album! The set was conceived in the 70s as a nod back towards the years of Ernest's youth – and it's an unusual ... (Out Sound, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Reuben's second album for Motown – the one in which they actually decided to put his face on the cover, and let folks know he was a blue eyed soul singer!

Human League —
Dare ... LP A&M/Virgin, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
Some great early 80s pop groove material from Human League – less of the colder synth of before, and more of the warmer soul-based sound that worked surprisingly well for the group! The EP features a number of tracks that fell between the LPs – including the extended version of their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Insane early work by Human League – very different than their later hits, with a stark, cold sythn-heavy sound that we really love!

There's a great sound going on here ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Humble Pie —
Eat It ... LP A&M, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
A new taste from Humble Pie – who moved into more of a rock 'n' soul vibe on 1973s Eat It than the more hard rocking previous couple of albums– originally a double LP of studio material on 3 sides a 4th side of live numbers captured at Green's Playhouse in Glasgow. The Clydie King ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Some of the most hard-hitting work ever recorded by Humble Pie – and that's saying a lot, given the power of the group on other albums!

(Cover has light wear and a few scratches on the front.)

A great little package that brings together the first two rare albums by Index – a group that started as a cover band in the suburbs of Detroit in the late 60s, but quickly found their way to some tremendous music of their own! The trio's got a style that's jamming and trippy at the same ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rare tracks from this obscure Detroit combo of the 60s – stripped down here to a trio lineup, which gives the music a really lean, clean focus that sounds years ahead of its time! The group definitely have their ears turned towards the psych side of the spectrum – but often mix fuzzy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A quintessential snapshot of the rawer roots of the 90s emo scene! Oakland's Indian Summer only lasted about a year, and recorded a bunch of songs issued as 7 inches or on compilations, but never issued a proper LP in their short time as an active band. Most of their songs have fragile melodic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unusual solo album from Neil Innes – best known for his work in The Rutles and Bonzo Dog Band! Features lead guitar and organ from Ollie Halsall – and titles that include "Momma Bee", "Immortal Invisible", "Topless A Go Go", and "How Sweet To Be An ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Yukari Ito with The Green Ginger —
Love ... LP Denon (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A strange and wonderful album of lovely pop! Japanese singer Yukari Ito performs with the Green Ginger vocal group, and warm jazzy arrangements by Osamu Shoji – in kind of a late 60s/early 70s pop mode with a fuzzy LA twist. Yukari's got a bit of Karen Carpenter in her voice – but it ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A heck of a great record – and we don't mind saying it! After knocking around in territory that ran from new wave to neo ska, retro swing, and other assorted genres, Joe Jackson really emerged with a strong voice on this 1982 classic. The album's a loving tribute to New York – and is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Searing and melodic pop psychedelia from Tommy James – partly backed by the Shondells, and partly by the group Neon on this set from the start of the 70s – with reverby guitars that waver off into the heavens and hooks the sink to the bone! It's great stuff for us, which heady ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever! The album's got an up-close, personal vibe – mostly just Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar, a bit like the earliest albums by Bob Dylan – and like Dylan, ...

Jack Orion ... LP Transatlantic/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
A huge leap forward for the mighty Bert Jansch – and a record that's somehow even more amazing than the ones that came before! Bert's maybe even more introspective here, but also on a personal journey that takes him down musical paths that seem broader than before – almost echoing a ...

A seminal session from 70s French synth maestro Jean-Michel Jarre – his 8-part "Equinoxe" suite, a great bit of electronics that was almost France's answer to Kraftwerk at the time! Jarre's style is a bit warmer and more focused on the melody – and the range of keyboards and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
