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
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 ...
Just Sold Out!
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 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.)
Early work from this legendary group – with titles that include "Shoot Out In Chinatown", "The River Hymn", "Smoke Signal", "The Moon Struck One", "When I Paint My Masterpiece", "Where Do We Go From Here", "Last Of The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Beach Boys —
Today! ... LP Capitol, 1965. Very Good+ ...
Just Sold Out!
A pre-Pet Sounds moment of genius from The Beach Boys – a record with some surprisingly wonderful songs tucked in amongst more familiar rockers! There's a growing brilliance here that's clearly evident in Brian Wilson's production, the tunes tender themes, and the complicated harmonics used ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo rainbow label pressing. Cover has a small split on the top seam.)
An unusual album issued by Vee Jay Records – the original home of The Beatles in the US! This one doesn't have music, but interview passages from their 1964 tour – plus some scoring from Lou Adler, and percussion from Hal Blaine! LP, Vinyl record album
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.)
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
(Original stereo Mainstream pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)
Nice bit of rockin' funky soul by a band that we know little about, but who seem to be an LA rock band that's obsessed with soul music. The LP contains a great 11 minute version of "Cold Sweat", played with a lot of funky vamping by the band in a JB's style. There's also a nice version ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Features Mick Abrams on lead vocals and guitar – and titles that include "Variations On Nainos", "San Francisco Sketches", "Toys", "Send Your Son To Die", "The Squirreling Must Go On", and "Meanie Monday". LP, Vinyl record album
A wild debut from Blood Sweat & Tears – one of those records that forever changed the face of popular music! The set's noteworthy not just for early vocals from Al Kooper – who was a key part of the group at their start – but also for key production work from a young John ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo 360 Sound pressing. Cover has ring and edge wear.)
At this point, the heavy rockers of Blue Cheer's members included Dickie Peterson on bass, guitar, and vocals, Gary Yoder on guitar, harp and vocals, Norman Mayell on drums, percussion, guitar and sitar and Ralph Kellogg on piano, organ and bass.

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band —
Keynsham ... LP Imperial, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Some of the most tuneful moments on record from the Bonzo Dog Band – a set that's got some really great songs, but which still allows some space for gags and jokes as well! After three previous albums together, even with a shifting lineup, the group have obviously gotten their groove down a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing. Cover has some surface wear.)
The last album from the legendary Bonzo Dog Band – issued at a time when the group were going their separate ways, hence the somewhat ironic title! The set's possibly a bit more musical than before – and almost even shows some traces of the hipper, artier side of the British scene that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing, with postcard intact! Cover has a cut corner.)
David Bowie —
Heroes ... LP RCA, 1977. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the three great collaborations between David Bowie and Brian Eno – and possibly the ultimate statement from his years in Berlin! The album's got some tunes that still show some of the guitar power of the early 70s Bowie – but it's also got some of the beautiful spacier moments ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing, AFL1-2522, with A-2/B-3 matrix and Sterling stamp. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Vinyl has some light cosmetic sleeve impressions. Cover has light wear and is bent a bit at the top left corner.)
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram UK Parlophone pressing from 2015. Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
