An incredible chapter in the Arthur Russell story – and one that's not nearly as well-known as his club singles and art rock work of the 80s! The 2LP package presents some long-lost longer form work by Russell – instrumental pieces composed and recorded in the 70s and early 80s, most ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels —
Breakout ... LP New Voice, Late 60s. Near Mint- ...
Blue-eyed soul from the legendary Mitch Ryder – and pretty darn gritty at that – steeped in styles borrowed from Memphis and Muscle Shoals, and given a bit of a color-blind twist on the Detroit scene of the late 60s! Mitch clearly loves the motor city sound of the 60s, but also takes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Green label stereo pressing. Labels have some light stains. Cover has a cut corner, some edge wear, and a center split in the bottom seam.)
A brilliant second album from Sagittarius – one of the shining stars of the Millennium universe at the end of the 60s! The album's got a deeper, more cerebral feel than the group's first – nicely spacious at points, kind of taking a cue from post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys, but also ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An early moment of genius from Ryuichi Sakamoto – the solo start of a fantastic legacy of electronic music, and a record that's still one of our real go-to discs from his mighty large catalog! The record is a great break from some other, earlier modes of Japanese experimentation – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A groovy little soundtrack – played by The Sandals, the same group who worked on the film The Endless Summer – director Dick Barrymore's strange documentary about surfers around the world. This time around, the theme is skiers – and The Sandals more than rise to meet the ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Haunting work from the duo of Sandhy & Mandhy – a pair from the Buenos Aires scene at the end of the 60s, working in a weird mix of beat group styles and hipper rock rhythms! There's a slightly ethereal quality to the work – partly because of the way the pair trade back vocals, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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", ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a name in marker, a sticker spot, and some wear.)

Eight tracks, including "Train To Nowhere", "Vicksburg Blues", "It Hurts Me Too", "May Be Wrong", and "Train To Nowhere". Produced by Mike Vernon, and the band includes Roger Earl & Lonesome Dave! LP, 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
A never-heard live set from the rock/fusion trio that shook the world from behind the Iron Curtain in the 70s – a mostly-instrumental performance recorded for Polish Radio in 1977! We say "mostly", because keyboardist Jozef Skrzek uses some occasional mouth organ next to his usual ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Boz Scaggs —
Boz Scaggs ... LP Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
The first-ever solo set from the great Boz Scaggs – done after a few key early performances with The Steve Miller Band – and with a style that's even more soulful than some of Scaggs' later work!

Boz Scaggs —
My Time ... LP Columbia, 1972. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
Boz Scaggs at the height of his early powers – still very much in the best blue-eyed soul style that first got him noticed by CBS, but also working with a stronger, richer, prouder sound that's really great! A number of the tracks on the set were recorded in Muscle Shoals, with superb small ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most experimental records we've heard from the prog era – and that's saying a lot, given the contemporary vibe of the time! Gunter Schickert here creates a marvelous blend of guitar sounds and space – even more stretched out and sonically-directed than any of the work on the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An 80s electro-pop classic from Peter Schilling – one of a handful of German artists who managed to crack the record racks over here at the time – thanks to his strong use of English language on most of the tracks, and his classic "Major Tom" track, which was a nice reference ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp and hype sticker.)

Conrad Schnitzler —
Gold ... LP Marginal Talent/Bureau B (Germany), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ...
Beautiful sound textures from Conrad Schnitzler – even more personal and more evocative than work by most of his contemporaries!

(Recent 180 gram vinyl.)
Klaus Schulze —

(Original German Brain pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
The Sea And Cake as fresh and breezy as ever! It's almost hard to believe, but Any Day marks the 25th years of The Sea And Cake – intermittently throughout that time span, anyway – and one of the most consistently brilliant runs in indie rock. They've always had an easygoing melodic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl pressing limited to indie stores. Includes download.)
The Sea & Cake's most instantly addictive album in years – one that blends the more anthemic style of their recent work with some bubbling synthy grooves! The group is nothing if not consistent, and they don't radically rework the set structure – with Sam Prekop's effervescent, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the breeziest breaths of fresh air in mid 90s inide rock! As much as any band of the era, The Sea & Cake managed to filter diverse tastes into their own music, from easygoing, unaggressive indie pop & rock, to Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian pop, rock and soul rhythms, to some vaguely ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
A really cool record from one of our favorite groups on Factory Records – a set when they were moving more into electronic and dance-oriented styles, but also working in a bit of their older psych elements too – maybe a vibe that's a precursor of some Creation and Manchester modes to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A groundbreaking debut from The Seeds – one of those albums that seemed to come out of nowhere back in the 60s, then went onto have an undeniable influence on music for decades to come! The music is gritty and garagey right from the start – but also has a sinister focus that really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(70s stereo pressing with 14630 matrix, still in the shrink.)
A hipper take on the Mike Seeger sound than his 60s records – and a set that nicely folds in all the contemporary elements that had been floating around in the younger appreciation of roots music. Guests include Roscoe Holcolmb on vocals and banjo, Elizabeth Cotton on guitar, Penny Cohey on ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic early side of work from 70s superstar Bob Seger – and one that comes as quite a surprise, compared to his hits!

Sex ... LP Trans Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
The debut album from this heavy Canadian power trio – a group who definitely put themselves on the line with their name – and the weird cover image of them running topless through a field! Fortunately, the sound's a lot less dated than that might make you expect – really hard-wail ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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 pressing with Tone etch. Cover has light wear, with a bit of pen and hype sticker on front.)
Classic sounds from the well-named "prince of power pop" – the mighty Phil Seymour, a singer who only gave us a few albums at the start of the 80s – but a singer who really helped to define a generation at the time! Seymour came onto the scene after the initial ripples of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed! Shrinkwrap is a bit aged, with hype stickers and a few small holes.)
A fuzzy, freaked-out classic from one of the coolest groups to work on the Chicago scene of the 60s – the mighty Shadows Of Knight, easily one of the best garage acts of their time! The album's got a raw power that's undeniable – a gritty sound that almost beats the Boston, Texas, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The album's named after a moth, who drifted into the studio during ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A groundbreaking set from The Silver Apples – one of those records that almost didn't get fully appreciated until many decades later! The sound here is quite unique, even for the late 60s psych rock underground – and The Apples work in a blend of spacey electronics, driving percussion, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great early work from the first Gene Simmons – not the guy who sang for Kiss in the 70s, but an earlier rocking singer from the south!

Nancy Sinatra recording in London, but still getting some heavy help from Lee Hazlewood – who wrote about half the tracks on the record, and also guest stars on one number too!

A wild little record from the hinterlands of rural Illinois in the early 80s – a set that's got a vibe that's quite different than most other albums of its time – more in a sunny, folksy, early 70s Cali mode than the darker sounds that were coming out of Chicago during the same stretch! ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Guy Skornik —
Tusk ... LP Finders Keepers (UK), 1979. New Copy ...

J'un Oeil ... LP RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1975. New Copy (reissue)...
Soaring space rock from Sloche – a group who work here in a heady blend of keyboards and vocals, stretched out on long tracks that never lose their energy at all!

(Individually numbered limited edition of 500!)
Stadacone ... LP RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1976. New Copy ...
Sloche only ever recorded two albums, and both of them are gems – the kind of overlooked Canadian 70s prog treasures that were lurking in the shadows right behind Rush! The group have a keyboard-heavy approach, but one that's never too noodly at all – as the rhythm section is super-tigh ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the best Brit psychedelic rock albums of the late 60s – one that sounds incredible to this day!

(180 gram UK pressing on Charly, still in the die-cut cover.)
Really enigmatic work from Craig Smith – aka Maitreya Kali – a figure who started out on the sunnier side of the LA scene, with work on TV and in a larger pop folk ensemble – but one who also hit some much darker corners by the end of the 60s, as you'll hear on this collection of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Among the best of the best of early Patti Smith albums – the Easter LP from 1978 – also her biggest hit ever!
