An important early meeting of these two groundbreaking guitar improvisers – and a great example of the way that Henry Kaiser was bridging the space between European free jazz and the American underground with his label! (Jazz, Rock)LP, Vinyl record album
One of those groups that should have been huge, and who should have ended up alongside the giants of classic rock to emerge during their generation! For some reason, Frost have always been part of a hipster underground who focus on rare psych and hard rock gems that were just beginning to emerge ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has splitting on the spine and some surface wear.)
A record that some might call the last truly great Peter Gabriel album – and a key cap to his excellent initial solo run! The album's got a deeper feel than before – slightly richer colors, more spiritual themes, and arguably more of a sense of majesty – almost an echo of some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
France Gall —
Baby Pop ... LP Philips (France), 1966. Near Mint- ...
No baby pop here, as France Gall is all-woman throughout – one of the best of the French female pop singers of the mid 60s, working here with an upbeat, groovy sound throughout! Backings are by the great Alain Gouraguer, who gives the record a tightly jerking kind of feel – a sound ... (French, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sweet 60s album – as trippy and nice as it sounds from the title! Gale's got a nice voice – one that's a bit folksy, but more confident than the average folkie of the time – with bits of blues, country, and rock that creep into the lyrics at just the right moments. The album's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye mono white label promo. Cover has promo and tracklist stickers, some wear and aging, and splitting in the bottom seam.)
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to ... (Now Sound, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono gold label pressing. Spine has a spot of tape and a small rip. Back cover has a name in marker.)
An album we come back to more and more over the years – a bit more subtle than some of the other Gabriel-era Genesis records, but in a good way! Titles include "Aisle Of Plenty", "More Fool Me", "Firth Of Fifth", "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(UK "small hatter" pressing, including insert. Cover has some ringwear, partially unglued top seam, small initials in pen, and a Jem Import sticker on front.)

George-Edwards Group —
Archives ... LP Drag City/Galactic Zoo Disk, 1970s/1980s. Near Mint- ...
Vintage 70s & 80s recordings from the George-Edwards Group – whose recorded legacy, we thought, was held almost completely by the cosmic psych/synth folk rarity 38:38 LP – but here's more from their personal Archives! Ed and Ray both provide vocals, keyboards and percussion – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great little album from Gary – his one big American hit, and a sublime blend of glam and groove, featuring the massive "Rock & Roll", a track that's still played ad infinitum today at sports events – and which never fails to charge up the scene! Gary must have gotten a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Goblin/Giorgio Gaslini —
Profondo Rosso ... LP Cinevox (Italy), 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest Italian horror soundtracks ever – and the album that firmly put Goblin on the map! The sound here is virtually a blueprint for countless other film scores in years to come – a sound built out of slow basslines that step around wonderfully – allowing space for ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Tripped-out sunshine pop from the end of the 60s – the only outing ever from The Golden Gate, a group put together by the team of Billy Carlucci and Reid Whitelaw, who were probably best known for their bubblegum pop work over at Kama Sutra! The sound of this one's quite deeper than any ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful early album from Lesley Gore – and a set that's got a lot more to offer than just the famous title track! Lesley's just a young gal at this time, but she sings in this lusty, personal style that's a lot richer than most female pop of the period – and which also shows the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A very cool version of this classic album from the Grateful Dead – pressed up on a mighty trippy picture disc, and featuring the band's own mix from 1971! Titles include "That's It For The Other One", "New Potato Caboose", "Born Cross Eyed", "Alligator" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An early Warner Brothers classic from the Grateful Dead – a set that has them stretching out in maybe a more collaborative way than usual – using a few key guests to expand their freewheeling sound! Titles include "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", "Doin ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Burbank label pressing. Cover has light wear and a bit of waviness on the opening.)
The long strange trip the Grateful Dead began with Warner Bros in the late 60s culminated in this concise, pretty darn solid attempt at an early Best Of, appropriately called Skeletons In The Closet! The Dead would never be best known for their studio recordings, but this really is a good reminder ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first album issued by the Grateful Dead on their own label – a setting that might make you think they'd act with less control than when at Warner Brothers, but which actually seems to have them doing the reverse! The whole thing's a great back-to-basics effort – sharp songs, rootsy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Green Day —
Dookie ... LP Reprise, 1994. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
Bratty Bay Area pop punks Green Day hit the bigtime – paving the way for FAR too many lesser acts to hit paydirt, sure, but you can't get too mad at Billie Joe, Mike and Tre for that when this one is still such a blast decades later! Nowhere near as lowbrow as the title or cover art would ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An obscure one from Project 3 – with a pop/folk spirit that's somewhere in the same space as Free Design! Enoch Light produced, Dick Hyman handled the arrangements, and titles include "So Far Apart", "When Love", "A New Beginning", "After Cambodia", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker and some wear at the spine.)
A sweet batch of sometimes droning, sometimes surprisingly melodic psychedelia from Growing Concern – one of the series of rare psych rock efforts release by the adventurous Mainstream label in the late 60s! Growing Concern took a more vocal approach to the sound than many of their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Big, heavy late 60s British rock from Gun – with the raw, lumbering and bluesy (or better, bloozy) power trio core that's fleshed out in the studio with horns and other more sweeping touches! It's wild stuff, a genuine precursor to heavy metal in the searing guitars, thundering drums and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has ring and edgew.)
A strange and ultimately very fun set from Nina Hagen circa '83 – with production by Giorgio Morodor that's clearly geared towards an 80s mainstream club soul sound – and the record turns out to be all the weirder because of it! Nina's vocals are as anti-pop as they come, and Morodor's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
Maybe one of the first-ever rock and roll full-length albums – with Bill Haley's big title cut – plus "Shake Rattle & Roll", "Two Hound Dogs", "Razzle Dazzle", "ABC Boogie", "Burn That Candle", "Rock A Beatin Boogie", " ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
What can we say? We winced at this one back when it came out, but over the years, it's got a real "Free Soul" appeal to us – with vocals that are surprisingly soulful in parts, some nice 80s mellow soul instrumentation, and even a few hooks that are real guilty pleasures. Includes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Still in the shrink with hype sticker, including the printed inner sleeve.)
