Purely classic 60s gems from Tommy James & The Shondells – kicking off with the all time great pop title track – and featuring loads of tunes that are nearly as wonderful! The group were hit radio kings at the time, and they cover some great ones by others, too, like "Californi ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An incredibly lovely record from Kraftwerk – fashioned along the same suite-like style as Radio Activity, and served up with some haunting and charming tunes throughout! The electronics are quite spare, yet very thoughtful – never a note out of place, as the quartet build their careful ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Led Zeppelin at peak power – mixing hard rock bombast with deep, genuine love for blues and folk guitars! Houses Of The Holy is the essential the blueprint for countless imitators to come – but it's also got smarts, subtleties and creative ambitious that's just plain lost on the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy vinyl, heavy cover, and with paper title band too!)
One of the great albums from Van Morrison during that incredible peak period – and a record that stands out as a less emotionally fraught effort after the heavy mood of Astral Weeks and the super far-reaching Moondance albums. Here Van concentrates a bit more on his love of R&B, but ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second, and possibly the most ambitious album the Brit psych-art soul unit led by Keith Emerson's showy, dense work on Hammond organ and keyboards. The group always had a theatrical approach, which really shows on the groups nuevo classical, psychological comedy song cycle! LP, Vinyl record album
(CSP pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and split seams.)
One of Nilsson's best ever albums – with a more streamlined overall sound than some of his wildly eclectic earlier LPs – really putting a tight focus on both his vocal and songwriting genius! There's an easygoing charm to the album that's pretty much unrivaled in his catalog (and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)
"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, with lipstick labels and Sterling stamp, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
Boban Petrovic —
Zora ... LP Discom/Disco Not Disco (Serbia), 1984. Near Mint- (reissue)...
A sweet slice of 80s electro soul from Serbia – a set that's the lasting legacy of Boban Petrovic, an artist who was heavily influenced by funky disco sounds from the west – and maybe a bit of fusion as well! The music has a much more soulful vibe than you'd guess from the cover image ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the coolest entries in an unusual genre that began to emerge on the Tokyo scene in the 80s – music created for use in fashion shows by very creatively-minded designers – but at a level that's far from the commercial trash of the American and European scene! Instead, the Japanese ... (Sound Library, Rock)read moreCD
Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly ... read more7-inch, Vinyl record
Incredible! The record's one that will blow away all your previous understandings of Rod Stewart – a wicked reinterpretation of the Faces sound, done with heavily acoustic instrumentation and really wonderful production. Includes Rod's landmark take on "Handbags & Gladrags" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing. Cover has light wear and clear tape on the spine.)
Hard to go wrong with the sublime "Candy's Room" – and the rest of the album is pretty darn amazing too! Titles include "Badlands", "Adam Raised A Cain", "Racing In The Street", "Factory", "Streets Of Fire", and "Darkness On ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Tommy ... LP Decca, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Trifold ...
Just Sold Out!
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

10 CC —
10 CC ... LP London/UK, 1974. Very Good+ ...
Just Sold Out!
The debut album from 70s tunefully tongue-in-cheek pop rockers 10 CC – and the intro to their unique blend of masterful pop songcraft and satirical, often vaguely cynical lyricism! As was the case with much of their ouvre, the jokiness rarely treads on the strong songwriting and catchy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing, including the lyric sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Pickwick pressing. Side 2 label was damaged during application.)
Way more than the disco cash-in some folks thought at the time – and a surprisingly classic set that perfectly sums up the late 70s Stones ethos – and, in a way, the vibe of a changing New York! Titles include "Miss You", "Beast Of Burden", "Shattered", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the die-cut cover with the amended inner sleeve.)
Steely Dan —
Gaucho ... LP MCA, 1980. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve and magazine clippings.)
An almost all-jazz release by Soft Machine – and a tasty bit of proggish tunes with a spare electric modal groove. Robert Wyatt's still on drums, and the rest of the group features Hugh Hopper on bass, Mike Ratledge on organ and piano, and Elton Dean on saxes. Titles include "Teeth" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan —
Aja ... LP ABC, 1977. Very Good- Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
An undisputed masterpiece, and a record we never tire of hearing – unabashedly the inspiration for our years of jazzy exploration as adults, even though it was probably the closest thing we ever got to the genre as wee lads! Walter Becker & Donald Fagan raise their already-high bar to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A catchy little single from this contemporary group – almost a Merseybeat tune, given the overall feel – but produced with a nicely garagey sound! "Watford Stomp" is more of a groover overall – with a fast-rolling, fast-riffing guitar – and a raw, upbeat sound ... read more7-inch, Vinyl record
Indescribably beautiful work from Kenny Rankin – a jazzy blend of vocals and folk – delivered with a warm and soulful tone that's unlike anyone else!

Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood —
Nancy & Lee ... LP Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ...
Sweet moody stuff from the period when the duo of Ms. Sinatra and Mr. Hazelwood was electric in the studio. This was back when he used to call her "Nasty" through the headphones in the vocal booth, and when the two of them put out such spooky spooky material as "Some Velvet ...

A stone classic from Blood Sweat & Tears – and a record that went onto have a tremendous impact in jazz, rock, funk, and soul!
