Jorma Kaukonen With Tom Hobson —
Quah ... LP Grunt, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ...
The mid 70s solo record by Jorma Kaukonen – the legendary guitarist for Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna – and a really great, sort of back to basics acoustic set! In direct contrast to some of the more bombastic rock coming out of the Jefferson Airplane camp in the early 70s, those one ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Wonderful, frightening and one of the best ever albums by The Fall! The Wonderful & Frightening World Of The Fall was their first album for Beggar's Banquet, and it's got a cleaner sound than the late 70s & earlier 80s sets, but it's still as sneering as sinister as all get out. Still, ... read moreCD
A great collection of work by Lighthouse – 2LPs worth of tracks, most of which have that brilliant mix of 60s pop and jazzy grooving that the group did so well! Titles include "Eight Miles High", "Never Say Goodbye", "Every Day I Am Reminded", "Mr ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Jazz violinist and vocalist Papa John Creach plays with the modern Midnight Sun soul group – and the result is a very strange batch of tracks that mix traditional stylings with modern instrumentation, and kind of a rock sound. Some tracks are jazzy, and lots are pretty hard jamming – ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD
The last studio effort from Jefferson Airplane – and an underappreciated gem! At this point, Airplane was on the descent, landing gear in place – with the foundations for band's one-time side projects Jefferson Starship and Hot Tuna ready to relaunch as primary projects. That said, it' ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the original fold-out cover, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
Bronson's back on the streets in this sequel to Death Wish – but fortunately, he's got Jimmy Page there to back him up! Page sings on the lead track, "Who's To Blame" – and the rest of them are mostly instrumentals, done with a pretty hard-ripping guitar sound that's actually ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Yoko Ono —
Fly ... CD Apple/Ryko, Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ...
Pretty wild work from Yoko Ono – a mixture of straight rock tunes and some very experimental numbers, a few of which sound so much like New York No Wave tunes from a decade later that we have to admit we're pretty darn shocked! In fact, we'd dare say the record's better than anything ... read moreCD
Not as guitarry or AM-pop heavy as the group's earlier classics, but still a pretty nice little record nonetheless – filled with the kind of playful McCartney tunes that we've always loved, and carried off with an undeniable charm. Includes the hit "With A Little Luck", plus "F ... read moreCD
A rare bit of David Byrne from the best years of the Talking Heads – tunes commissioned by Twyla Tharp for an offbeat piece of dance entitled The Catherine Wheel. A few of the tracks are vocals, and feature some of Byrne's most compelling lyrics from the time – and others are ... read moreCD
(Out of print. Cover image differs slightly from that shown.)
Titles include "Up On Cripple Creek", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Stage Fright", "Ophelia", "Twilight", "Stage Fright", "Don't Do It", "It Makes No Difference", "The Shape I'm In", and "Life ... read moreCD
A graceful collaboration between the ever-eclectic Elvis Costello and New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint – with Elvis's current backing group The Imposters providing a tight rhythmic backdrop that's punctuated by the Crescent City Horns! Toussaint's work as a producer/arranger/ace songwriter ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD
See ... LP Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ...
Harder rocking and almost deeper soul than before – and a tremendous evolution in the music of The Rascals – light years past the pop hits of a few years before! The group co-produced the album with Arif Mardin, and the sounds here are even more sophisticated than their Once Upon A ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Steppenwolf/Holy Modal Rounders/Roger McGuinn —
Easy Rider ... LP ABC/Dunhill, 1969. Very Good ...
A tripped-out batch of freedom rock tunes – pulled together to accompany Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper's famous trip across the wasteland of late 60s America! The set includes Steppenwolf's anthemic "Born To Be Wild", as well as their "The Pusher" – plus "Kyrie ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, some splitting on the spine, and a light stain on the top left corner.)
Includes "Lots Of Money", "Privilege & Easy", "Walk", and "Nothin' Left To Save". 12-inch, Vinyl record
Love ... LP Elektra, 1966. Very Good+ ...
Love's first album – a seminal bit of Sunset Strip rock, and every bit as powerful today as it was in the 60s! The style's a bit sharper-edged than the group's classic and more familiar Forever Changes set, but it's still pretty darn great – a completely fresh batch of guitar-heavy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original gold label stereo pressing. NOTE: Vinyl has a slight warp, but played through for us!)
Sure, Desiderata was one of the biggest spiritual scams of the early 70s – but there's a monster cut on here called "Courage" that is totally funky! It's got some excellent drums, and an eerie voiceover monologue in a very David Axelrod style! (Comedy/Spoken, Rock)LP, Vinyl record album
(Missing poster. Cover has a name in pen, a cut corner, and light wear.)
Alive! ... CD Casablanca/Mercury, 1975. Used 2CDs ...
One of THE classic double live albums of the 70s – with titles that include "Black Diamond", "Watching You", "Deuce", "Strutter", "Hotter Than Hell", "Got To Choose", "Firehouse", "Nothin To Lose", "She" ... read moreCD
(Out of print.)
Jimi Hendrix —
Blues ... CD Sony/MCA, Late 60s. Used ...
The brilliant bluesy side of Hendrix – great stuff recorded from '66-'70 – including his most blues based originals and incredible covers! Bluesy it is, but it's also Jimi – with the soaring, loose and massively influential lead guitar grooves and many of which went unreleased ... read moreCD
Amazing work from the Blues Magoos – stretching way beyond their roots as a garage rock band! The album's free, open, with a really jazzy style that shows that these guys had been soaking up plenty of influences from the left end of the singer/songwriter spectrum – and had also been ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole & a sticker on the back.)
A classic! Where would electronic pop be without Gary Numan's "Cars"? Alongside Kraftwerk's classic 80s albums and Yellow Magic Orchestra's first LP, this album by Gary Numan ranks as one of the most essential synth driven LPs on a creative level – and it rightly brought the sound ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)
One of the great lost psych albums on late 60s Elektra Records – a set that's maybe got enough power and majesty to stand next to contemporaneous label releases by Love and The Doors! Like both of those groups, Clear Light have a vision here that's completely their own – a sound that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label pressing. Cover has light wear with a bit of pen.)
A very cool set of work from Moebius – not the German electronic group of the same generation, but a much lesser-known American duo – although one who also embraced a fair bit of electronics too! The style here is mostly lean, and carved out of keyboards, beats, and lots of other cool ... read moreCD
A record we'd never part with – and easily our favorite album ever from The Who! Quadrophenia represents the group at its peak from all perspectives – songwriting, performance, and even studio presence – as the album's got a sonic sensibility that few other albums of the time can ... read moreCD
One of the crowning achievements of The Turtles – a set that features all original material by members of the group, and stellar production by Ray Davies of The Kinks! The set's the only full length that Davies ever handled – and it's obvious the group really rose to the occasion for ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
All the great early blues albums from Fleetwood Mac – including Blues Jam in Chicago, Fleetwood Mac, Mr Wonderful, The Pious Bird Of Good Omen, and The Original Fleetwood Mac – with lots of bonus tracks too! CD
Perfect summer pop! After Murray Wilson was kicked out by his sons, the Beach Boys, he went on to prove to the world that he could create another group that was every bit as good as them. Truth is, he failed, but that doesn't stop the Sunrays from being a fantastic bit of 60's pop surf harmony ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has clear tape along the top & bottom seams and light wear.)
David Bowie —
Low ... LP RCA, 1977. Good ...
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. NOTE – Vinyl is cracked on the edge through the first two songs on Side A and first song on Side B, otherwise VG.)
A big, lush and moody set of standards by the great Harry Nilsson – with Harry's charismatic, unrivaled vocals in peak form – and add just a little touch of the oddball touches he was most famous for to that point! At this point in the early 70s, probably the least hip thing a singer ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stone smoker from Rare Earth – recorded a a time when they were able to easily handle a groove made up of equal parts funk, rock, and soul! The vibe here is almost like War at times – not for the LA touches in the mix, but for the heady and heavy way these guys roll forward – ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
