Bridget St John —
Thank You For ... LP Dandelion/Trading Places (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
A slight shift in styles for British singer/songwriter Bridget St John – an album that shakes off a few of the folksy touches of earlier years, but still retains all the dark corners that make her work so great! A few tracks on the album have Bridget working with more traditional ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A set that's maybe a bit more straightforward than some of the other work from Ryuichi Sakamoto from the time – warmly crafted with lots of jazzy touches, thanks to work on the record from Katuougi Session! The approach is almost city pop, but there's still some of the quirkier touches we ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rare early work from the great Sandy Salisbury – maybe best known as a member of Millennium, with the young Curt Boettcher – but clearly a great talent on his own! In fact, given that Curt first got his start in the world of folk, the jangle pop of these tunes really shows the strong ... read moreCD
A fantastic debut album from Samurai – one of those lost prog classics from the start of the 70s that still sounds years ahead of its time! The group features Dave Lawson on keyboards and vocals – and represents an amazing (and short) evolution of the sound of his music from his time ... read moreCD

3 ... CD World Psychedelia (Korea), Mid 70s. New Copy ...
Super fuzzed out, trippy 70s psych rock from Korea's San Ul Lim – an album recorded by the Seoul rockers in the power trio format of guitar, bass and drums – but with such a fuzzy, dense tone that it's hard to fathom how on Earth they got the sound! The opening track starts in ... read moreCD
Sweet folksy pop from the glory days of A&M! Evie Sands has a voice that's emotive in a folk rock way, but which is here produced with smoother west coast arrangements that are more in an LA mode – which makes for a very cool mix of modes! The overall sound of the album is very hip ... read moreCD
Pretty hip stuff, with a definite Coltrane influence – and Larry Young in the group on organ, along with Billy Cobham on drums and Armando Peraza on congas. Titles include "Naima", "A Love Supreme", "Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord", "Meditation", ... read moreCD
(Numbered, limited edition Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing!)
A 28 track career retrospective, including: "Let There Be Light", "Brotherhood", "Spirit", "Right Now", "Life Is For Living", "Saja/Right On", "Somewhere In Haven", "I Believe It's Time", "Serpents & ... read moreCD
A crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch, promo stamp, audiophile sticker, and hype sticker on back.)

Orient ... LP Kitty/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)...
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A special split LP from Savoy Brown – one side live, and one side studio – both produced to blues rock perfection by Mike Vernon! The live set features one 22 minute long medley, titled "Savoy Brown Boogie" – and studio tracks include "Made Up My Mind", "I ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Seminal funky rock from 70s Poland – recorded by a hard-jamming group who also had plenty of fusion in the mix! The guitars are clearly in the lead here – strutting out next to some tight and frenetic work on drums – but the album's also got a fair bit of keyboards too, including ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A huge collection of work from Scars – maybe more than they ever released back in the day! The set begins with the album Author Author – the only full length album from Edinburgh group! The year is 1981, and the vibe maybe shows some of the changes in the post-punk years – less ... read moreCD
A very groovy record – sort of a mix of 60s pop, eastern trippiness, and bits of psyche jazz that you might hear on other albums on Verve at the time! Danny's vocals aren't too bad – and on the best cuts, he's got a slightly broken style of singing that breathes a bit of honesty into ... (Now Sound, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

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

Sublime electronics from Conrad Schnitzler – one of his excellent "color" albums of private recordings from the 70s – and maybe one of the most incredible of the bunch! As Asmus Tietchens says in the notes, "the future has already happened" – which may well be ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Recent 180 gram vinyl, includes the printed inner sleeve.)
One of those surprisingly great albums from the second chapter in the career of banjo legend Earl Scruggs – material recorded with sons Randy, Steve, and Gary – who bring a bit of rock elements into the music, but still give Earl plenty of room to solo too! Gary sings on a few cuts, ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreCD
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
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
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 moreCD

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
A lost bit of prog from the UK scene of the 70s – an obscure record that appeared right before the birth of punk, but which carries plenty more echoes of the generation before – especially in the way the hard-jamming guitars can really take off on a riff and fly into a frenzy! 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. The sound is difficult to describe – but the record has some extremely compelling songwriting, and great vocal work that carries ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked A&M gem – produced by Graham Nash, with work from A&M talents like Booker T Jones on organ, Sneaky Pete on steel guitar, and Nick DeCaro on accordion – on a set of offbeat tracks that really live up to the spirit of the rest! LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has some light aging near the top.)
A fantastic second album from Chicago's Sen Morimoto – and, like the first, a set that really moves beyond simple definition!

(Limited edition "Mystery" colored vinyl – includes download!)
A dark duo from the Indonesian scene – working here in a mode that's unlike anything you might expect! The pair mix deep, muddy vocalizations with noisy guitar and other fuzzy sounds – but also include some more organic melodic or percussive instrumentation from time to time – ...

A pretty obscure late 60s set on Capitol Records – by one of those great bands who briefly got the chance to record for the label, then never showed up again! The Serfs have a lot going on for such a relatively unknown group – a sound that's partly folk, partly roots, and with some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole in one corner, and a mark from a sticker in the same corner.)
The soundtrack to the Sex Pistols quote/unquote documentary The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle – a crazy mess of Pistols odds, ends and quote/unquote hits – including Sid's crazy-as-hell take on Sinatra, the weird quote/unquote French version of "Anarchy In The UK" and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(UK Virgin pressing with Tone etch. Cover has a hype sticker, some edge wear, a bit of pen on front, and a small peeled spot on back.)
Includes "Last Show On Earth", "The Filth & The Fury", "10th Anniversary Album", "No Future USA" plus an LP worth of Italian demos, along with Sid Vicious' "Drugs Kill" and "The Real Sid & Nancy"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet and insert. Box is in nice shape too, with just a bit of wear at the corners.)
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
The Shadows on their own, without Cliff Richard – but that's OK with us, as it means that we get to hear plenty of great guitar work from Hank Marvin, and drums and pepiano from Brian Bennett! LP, Vinyl record album

Working class British punk at it's brash, dumb best. We'd be stretching it a bit to rate this album a classic, but it's definitely worth revisiting from time to time, and has stood up better than a lot of other late 70s rock.
