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
A great later chapter in the career of Jack Scott – one of the best of the never-hit rockers of the late 50s, still going strong here on this set of recordings for RCA's Groove label in the mid 60s! Although most others had changed their styles by the time, Jack still held strongly onto all ... read moreCD

Sea & Cake —
Any Day ... CD Thrill Jockey, 2018. New Copy ...
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 moreCD

(Clear vinyl pressing limited to indie stores. Includes download.)
Sweet smooth grooves from Sea Level – a killer crossover 70s group, one with roots in the Allman Brothers, but a sound that's much more wide-reaching overall! This sublime album is an AOR classic – a set that graced countless collections back in the day, thanks to a warm blend of rock ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

An insane amount of material from The Searchers – served up here in a set that goes way way past their few hits that made it to the radio over here back in the 60s! The group were a key part of the evolving British sound of the time – and had this way of harmonizing together that was ... read moreCD
A rootsy rock classic from Seatrain – a group who maybe aren't as well-remembered these days as they should be – but who set off a lot of fires with this set! The group work in territory that's close to The Band or Little Feat – and in fact they cover a song by the latter at once ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Okay, we'll admit it, this is not the sort of record you're going to buy to listen to all the way through, unless you're into 70s Christian rock, which it's not the most terrible example of. For the rest of you, it does have a monster funky drum break that's ripe for sampling! The cut's "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.

A great "new" album from the legendary Seeds – not new recordings, but a fresh collection that brings together a fair bit of rare and unissued tracks – along with some of their classics, and some rare pre-seeds material too! The collection is pulled from a soundtrack for the ... read moreCD
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! The music is gritty and garagey right from the start – but also has a sinister focus that really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing, original label design with "I Can't Seem To Make You Mind", with a later B 14630 matrix, still in the shrink including blue & white inner sleeve.)

A long awaited reunion of west coast indie psych pop masterminds Ty Segall & Tim Presley aka White Fence! It's a gem, and best of all, not a sequel or rehash of thier beloved earlier collaboratorative LP Hair, this one's got it's own vibe! Most of the songs are really short, given it a ... read moreCD
A fantastic early side of work from 70s superstar Bob Seger – and one that comes as quite a surprise, compared to his hits! This early material is really raw, gritty, and definitely shows Bob's roots in the same Detroit scene that was changing the worlds of both soul and rock in the late 60s ... read moreCD

Heavy psych from Detroit, in the years before Bob Seger became a "lighters in the air" peddler of redneck theme songs. Cut from the same cloth as the early Mitch Ryder, Amboy Dukes and Grand Funk that were the hallmark of the Motor City rock sound of the day, most of the tracks on this ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Haze ... CD Big Crown, 2018. New Copy 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
Super-raw work from The Shadows Of Knight – maybe the earliest recording ever of the famous garage combo – and a set that already shows them sounding pretty darn great! The material is from a small club on the outskirts of Chicago – and the young quintet is already completely on ... read moreCD
A surprising new set from Gunter Schickert – a 70s Krautrock giant who's probably best known for his work on the Brain label – stepping out here with a sound that makes us feel as if the decades haven't passed at all!

A surprising late folk entry in the Elektra Records catalog – recorded in the early 70s, and with some sublime production from the great Gary Usher! The sound is definitely contemporary folk, as promised in the title – but there's more of a singer/songwriter sensibility too – ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great package of work from Shoes – one of the finest acts to come from the Illinois scene in the 70s – presented here with three full albums, and bonus tracks too! First up is their seminal Black Vinyl Shoes – an album that may well stand as the group's lasting treasure! The ... read moreCD
Quite an unusual setting for the drum and percussion work of the mighty Hamid Drake – as the set features his much-hailed talents in the company of the spacey Mako Sica combo! The group's music is maybe a bit more abstract than jazz – although it's still created from familiar elements ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

953 West ... CD Wooden Nickel/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ...
The album's title is a reference to an address on the north side of Chicago – 953 West Belmont Ave – somewhat gritty at the time the album was recorded, now not too far from a giant Target discount store! Yet the address, the cover, and the overall presentation are a great example of ... read moreCD
A great electro classic from the earliest years of synth pop – served up here by a British group who set the scene for a whole generation! Silicon Teens never had the success of Human League or some of their contemporaries, but they definitely set the scene for that generation – by ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Paul Simon's mid 80s landmark – a record that brought together Simon's unique voice and pop folk songwriting skill with South African, Chicano, zydeco other global musical styles – held together by some of the best songs Simon ever put together!

We've gotta admit, this record sounds a lot better with the passing of time than we might have expected – thanks in part to some totally sweet Fender Rhodes, used often, and in all the best ways to pepper the tunes! Barry Beckett and Bob James handle the keys – and there's even some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Siouxie & The Banshees pick up songs from a well-chosen array of other artists – including Roxy Music, Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, Television, and Billie Holiday – almost moving into that reworking-of-classics style that This Mortal Coil was using at the time – even though Siouxie's ... read moreCD

All tracks are long and spun out – electronic, but with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the grooviest Australian groups of the 70s – one of that rare breed from down under who effortlessly mixed together rock and soul – often with some very unique results! We'd rank these guys right next to Renee Geyer or Rocco – as they've got a similar blue-eyed sensibility ... read moreCD
Still one of THE standout records of the post-punk years – the simple but effective dub statement of three London ladies with decidedly left wing politics!
