Was there a finer moment of 80s pop than this little gem? Maybe not – as the duo are at their most floppy-haired charming throughout – serving up some of the catchiest new romantic material of their generation, including the hits "Shout" and "Everybody Wants To Rule The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A classic set from pop pair Nino Tempo & April Stevens – a duo who had a great way of folding their vocals together in the space of a catchy tune! Some numbers feature April singing alone, in that breathy style of earlier years – but the best tracks have both singing together, over ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Incredibly groovy work from the team of Nino Tempo and April Stevens – a sweet bit of 60s pop with plenty of Sunshine touches! The pair have a gentle swing that's totally great on just about every track – a unqiuely jaunty groove that's almost the Atco equivalent of the sound that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Ten Wheel Drive with Genya Ravan —
Brief Replies ... LP Polydor, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
Hard-rockin bluesey funky work from Genya and crew – with lots of great guitar bits ripping around, and some surprisingly strong funky undercurrents working at the bottom of the set! Think Betty Davis gone a bit more rock, and you've got a very good idea of the sound of this one – but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The great first album from Ten Years After – recorded at a time when the group were maybe more strongly linked to the bluesy sounds of the beat group generation than in later years – although still with a hint of some of the trippy touches to come! There's a surprisingly strong ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US stereo pressing with Bell Sound stamp. Cover has light wear.)
Ten Years After —
Undead ... LP Deram, 1968. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
A searing live document of the magic of Ten Years After – recorded at London's Klooks Kleek as a great example of the kind of sound that got the group a huge amount of attention before they were even signed to a record label! The sound's still got some of the bluesy influences that both the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a half split top seam, light surface wear, and a name in pen.)
A collection of early work from Jimi Tenor – an artist who's maybe known best these days for his spiritual jazz and funk recordings, but one who sounded very different at the time of this material! Jimi issued much of this music on the Warp label back in the 90s – and although there's ... (New Grooves, Rock)read moreCD

A classic bit of club crossover from Matt Johnson – served up here in a whopping 10 minute 12" single version! We're actually more partial to "Three Orange Kisses" – which is a much darker, exotic-styled number. (Soul, Rock)12-inch, Vinyl record
Ok, so Van Morrison's left your group – what do you do? The remaining members of the group split off into two factions, the raunchier of which, the Belfast Gypsies, hooked up with Kim Fowley! This set documents the great work of that post-Morrison Them sidegroup – and most tracks were ... read moreCD
Raw early work from Them – a group that's plenty gritty at this point in their career, with a young Van Morrison sounding bold and soulful in the lead! If you only know Van's later, sweeter tones, you'll really be surprised here – as he's got this style that's heavily influenced by ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Thievery Corporation —
Symphonik ... CD Eighteenth Street Lounge, 2020. New Copy ...
The title here certainly gets it right – as the album marks a huge new step for Thievery Corporation – the first full record in which the group works with orchestral accompaniment – a move that's maybe long overdue, given how much these guys were initially influenced by older ...

Wonderful work from the early Thin Lizzy trio lineup – a record that has all the power of their later records, but which also mixes in some airier moments that really help shape the sound! These guys are already setting themselves apart from their psych or blues rock predecessors – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Maybe the first true moment of greatness from Thin Lizzy – a record that really has them coming into their own, with a sharpness that really points the way at their later classics – and that unique approach that has Phil Lynott standing out as one of the most unique singers of his ... read moreCD
Shakespeare never sounded so compelling before – given a very cool soundtrack by the Third Ear Band, who were moved to work on this project in collaboration with director Roman Polanski! The music is fantastic away from the film – very different than some of the group's earlier records ... read moreCD

Raw early genius from the 13th Floor Elevators – cut back at a time when the Texas combo were one of the hippest things going in the late 60s American underground!

You & I & Me ... CD Sunset Blvd, Mid 60s/1976. New Copy 2CDs ...
A huge batch of rare material from one of the freakiest, fuzziest groups of the 60s – all pulled from the archives of Roy Ames, and recorded in Houston and San Francisco in 1966 and 1967 – and mixed here with some equally wild Roky Erikson solo material from 1976! There's not much in ... read moreCD
Tremendous work from This Mortal Coil – only the second album by the 4AD Records collective, but one that doubles the length of the first – and explores some even deeper territory in the process! The group take songs that had been forgotten from previous generations – beautiful ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great US 2LP set – one that goes back to present the debut Richard & Linda Thompson effort to the American market, then adds in live tracks too! LP 1 features I Want To See The Bright Lights – the first and greatest album together from Richard & Linda Thompson – and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album by Three Dog Night – issued hot on the heels of the first, and with a similar heavy-rock trippy-pop kind of approach! The album's surprisingly nice – and with soulful overtones that you wouldn't expect, sounding a bit like parts of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A weird bit of sunshine pop – with the unusual feature that side one of the album is vocal, and side two is instrumental! There's some wonderful backings on the set – almost in a Rotary Connection mode, with lots of strange production, echoey orchestrations, and a good mix of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A totally groovy group – working here with production from Mama Cass and Steve Barri, in this style that hyas them mixing male and female vocal leads, with a sing/song 60s vibe and lots of nice harmonies – with the best hip currents of Spanky & Our Gang at their best! LP, Vinyl record album

Throttle Elevator Music —
Area J ... CD Wide Hive, 2014. Used ...
Matt Montgomery on bass, guitar & organ, Mike Hughes on drums, Kamasi Washington on tenor saxophone & Erik Jekabson on trumpet. (Jazz, Rock)CD
Slightly hipper than some of Johnny Tillotson's other work – filled with lesser-known tracks that mix sweeter themes with some of the headier topics of the times – almost showing that great way that country pop was coming into play with some of the issues and pressures of the late 60s. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Shrinkwrap has a small tear in front.)
One of the weirdest albums of the 60s, and a surprisingly big hit for the legendary Tiny Tim – a character then know to TV audiences for his appearances on Laugh-In and other shows – but an artist who sounds surprisingly culture-counter all these years later! The album's got some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A huge double-length live set of the groovy Tiny Tim at the height of his powers – and one that maybe offers up the fullest document of his surprisingly strong impact on the late 60s scene! The album's overflowing with tracks, all recorded by producer Richard Perry while Tim was strumming ... read moreCD
Brilliant material from George Tipton – an arranger who's best known for his late 60s work backing up Harry Nilsson, working here in a set that returns the favor by offering up fresh new versions of Nilsson's tunes!

Maybe the greatest thing to ever come out of Bauhaus – a stripped-down version of that group, with a sound that's stark, spare, and still wonderful after all these years! More Factory Records than goth – with the classic "Go" – plus "Lions", "War", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
