Anima ... CD Spalax (France), 1972. Used ...
Just Sold Out!
A seminal album from Anima – a weird mix of prog, avant, and experimental jazz modes – played by a group that features MPS maestro Friedrich Gulda on piano! The album only features two long tracks – "Meeting In The Studio" and "Anima Live" – both of ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreCD
One of the better early 70s Ash Ra Tempel albums – in which Klaus Schulze joins in once again – really riveting stuff from the pioneering German group! The album features a pair of long suites, one just shy of 20 minutes and the other a bit longer: "Freak 'N' Roll" and ... read moreCD
One of the most iconic rock and roll shows of all time – the late 70s farewell to The Band – and quite famously, much more final concert by an esteemed band, it's actually a rock, pop, folk, blues and soul summit that features The Band as the house band. This landmark document of the ... read moreCD
(Gold CD pressing – from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab! Penmark through barcode.)
One of the greatest rock and roll box sets of all time – way more than just a collection of hits, and a virtual treasure trove of rare material by the group! The first 4 CDs in the set features some hits, some album cuts, and some singles by the group – but also include a tasty batch ... read moreCD
Features mini-LP sleeve versions of Rubber Soul, Help, Early Beatles, and Beatles VI! CD
(Out of print.)
Help ... CD Capitol/Apple, 1965. Used ...
A great little record that's kind of a prequel for Rubber Soul – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that ... read moreCD
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess! The set's incredibly strong throughout – filled with some of the new post-Peppers ideas explored by the ... read moreCD
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature ... read moreCD
Ferocious, darkness-tinged postpunk from The Birthday Party! The caterwauling and howling fervor here is uber-influential to a lot darker indie/noise rock to come later in the decade. The band known by many for being Nick Cave's launching pad, but deserves many more props for the uncompromising ... read moreCD
An unmitigated blast of punk, worthy of setting the stage for the American hard core movement! While punk rock had been firmly established by the time this album came out, no one was prepared for the next level that Black Flag would take things to with this brutal, nihilistic, stripped down ... read moreCD
The fourth nearly flawless album of heavy genius from Black Sabbath – featuring some of the mightiest rock riffs ever! Vol 4 is just the tiniest of notches below Master Of Reality and Paranoid in overall greatness – which is the tiniest of possible complaints given that those previous ... read moreCD
An overlooked gem from the initial run of Black Sabbath – the last album to feature Ozzy Osborne on vocals, and a set that really hones the group's power of the previous years! You might expect a more commercial outing from the cover – or maybe think that these guys were trying on some ... read moreCD
Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the ... read moreCD
A key blend of two chapters in David Bowie's career – his guitar-heavy groove with the Spiders From Mars, and his 60s roots in mod London! The tracks here all date from the mid 60s, and are Bowie's homage to that period in his life – but they're all played with a glammish 70s ... read moreCD
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work ... read moreCD
A wild batch of jazz rock tunes – recorded by ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce, along with a host of like-minded luminaries that include Chris Spedding, Harry Beckett, Dick Heckstall-Smith, and John Hisemann. Unlike Bruce's first solo album – Things We Like – which was an all-jazz ... read moreCD
A pretty beautiful live recording of the great Tim Buckley – recorded at the Folk Center, NYC in March of 1967 – captured between the releases of his first and second albums for Elektra, and making the hairs on our arm stand up all these years later with just his voice and hard-strummed ... read moreCD
A smoking live set from the Butterfield Blues Band – and like all the group's work, as much of a jazz and soul album as a blues one! Butterfield drew his inspiration from the Chicago bluesmen, it's true – but his style also has plenty of echoes of New Orleans soul, Memphis R&B, and ... read moreCD
