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
One of the most searing, soaring albums ever from Santana – a set that takes all the power of the previous two records, and packs it into one tight little set! There's plenty of Latin influences going on – mixed with heavy fuzz from Carlos, and lots of jazz and funky touches too – ... read moreCD
Satisfaction ... LP Decca/Alternative Fox (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
The only album ever recorded by Satisfaction – a wonderful British group from the key jazz rock years of the scene, but one who have a sound that's maybe more personal and intimate than the rest! These guys are never too proggy, and are only just a sextet – one that's fronted by some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

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
(Cover has a slice down part of the spine which has caused some splitting and flaking.)
Savoy Brown —
Raw Sienna ... LP Parrot/London, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ...
A fantastic classic from Savoy Brown – one of those records that shows just why these guys were so great during their short early run! The approach is maybe familiar blues rock, but the sound is also very special – with a great sense of fusion of all the elements, so that vocals, ... 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
Soaring sounds from SBB – an all-instrumental session for Polish Radio, and one that really shows off the more fusion-heavy side of their music! All tracks are nice and long – and there's more of a power trio formation in the group – really freewheeling guitar lines that are ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound! The Scaggs here is a really loose and soulful one – as Boz steps out of the freewheeling late 60s Bay Area scene with a really wonderful take on blue-eyed soul – an ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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 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
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 ...
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. ...

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! The Shaggs story of a young girl group and their dad manager dreaming big and hoping for ... read moreCD
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!

Seminal girl group sounds from the Shangri-Las – served up with a slightly dark undercurrent that's mighty nice! The group are awash here in Brill Building sounds – getting some nice arrangements from Artie Butler, Jeff Barry, and others – all in a mode that's slightly less than ...
