The beautiful first album from Janis Ian – recorded when she was just 15 years old, and a beautifully arranged around her lovely vocals! Janis Ian's self-titled album was something of a hit at the time, but is largely remembered for her fearlessly frank lyrics – from the gorgeous " ...

Ides Of March —
Vehicle ... LP Warner, 1970. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
These guys will forever be known for the jazzy grooving title hit – "Vehicle", a brassy driving number that seems as if it's always being used in some sort of car commercial (which must net these guys a lot of royalties!) – but which is usually mistaken by others for being the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A classic album from Idle Race – an incredible pre-ELO group that featured some amazing work from a young Jeff Lynne! The music is a great mix of trippy and catchy styles – and in a way, the work here is almost more ELO than some of the earliest albums issued by that band a few years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(70s UK pressing on Sunset.)
If 2 ... LP Capitol, Early 70s. Near Mint- ...
The sweet second album from If – a Brit jazz-rock combo with a really great sound! The album was produced by Lew Futterman, the talent behind some of Jack McDuff's large-arrangement albums for Blue Note – and Lew seems to bring in a similar ambitious feel to the set that really brings ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Lime green label pressing. Cover has light ring wear.)
The only album from The Innocence – a cool little group with a really playful pop feel – one that's definitely cut from the same cloth as other Kama Sutra groups from the Lovin Spoonful generation! The core sounds here are from the duo of Pete Anders and Vinnie Poncia – who often ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has split seams held with old tape and light surface wear.)
A great all-girl group from the 70s – and an album that's almost as famous for its nude-painted-silver bodies on the front cover as it is for the grooves on the record! The style here is somewhat in the jazzy rock vein, but with a deeper sense of soul – vocals that could stand well on ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring and edge wear, with a cutout notch.)
A heck of a great record – and we don't mind saying it! After knocking around in territory that ran from new wave to neo ska, retro swing, and other assorted genres, Joe Jackson really emerged with a strong voice on this 1982 classic. The album's a loving tribute to New York – and is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful, groovy set of landmark pop and folksy tunes from Wanda! At her peak, which stretched from the mid 50s throughout the 60s, Ms. Jackson could melt you with any combination of sultry ballads, fiery rockabilly, or traditional country numbers, and Many Moods covers all those bases. She ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Raucous late material from Wanda Jackson – one of the greatest voices of late 50s rock & roll, male or female – sounding freshly invigorated well into her 70s! The album is produced by Jack White and staffed by his Third Man Records players, with no one involved here sounding all ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Black vinyl pressing, including the insert. Cover has light wear.)
A great later record by The Jam – a little bit of a step back into a rawer sound than they're somewhat slick sounding Setting Sons from the year before – but it's ultimately a pretty big creative step! While the sound a little more raw than on Setting Sons, The Jam is diversely inspired ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pretty cool and groovy work from Tommy James – with cuts that include "Papa Rolled His Own", "Sweet Cherry Wine", "Cellophane Symphony", "Evergreen", "On Behalf Of The Entire Staff & Management", and "The Love Of A Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
A goofy title track, and a groovy little album from Jan & Dean – a set that has them settling nicely into their role as one of the most playful pairs in west coast pop – with a heck of a lot more staying power than some of their more surf-washed contemporaries! The album's got a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Plenty of surf number stepping out here – but often with that great second-chapter Beach Boys mode – that pre-Pet Sounds style that's often got some darker currents underneath! The pair are great in the lead, and get a bit of harmony support from The Fantastic Baggys – and some ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever! The album's got an up-close, personal vibe – mostly just Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar, a bit like the earliest albums by Bob Dylan – and like Dylan, ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A huge leap forward for the mighty Bert Jansch – and a record that's somehow even more amazing than the ones that came before! Bert's maybe even more introspective here, but also on a personal journey that takes him down musical paths that seem broader than before – almost echoing a ...

Jean Michel Jarre —
Zoolook ... LP Dreyfus (France), 1984. Very Good+ ...
World sounds meet 80s electronics – and the result is a groundbreaking batch of tracks from Jean-Michel Jarre, one that sounds a heck of a lot better today than we remember 20 years ago! Jarre's got a great sound here – dark, evocative, and with enough colonialist tension between the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Jefferson Airplane flying high in the late 60s – both a creative and commercial triumph for the band – balancing the tripped out adventurousness of their earlier work, with a more focused approach that brought them to bigger and bigger audiences! Front loaded with moodier, acoustic-base ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove, with RCA inner sleeve. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)
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

The first of the twin Waylon Jennings masterpieces from 1973 – a career-defining year that saw the releases of both Lonesome, On'ry & Mean and Honky Tonk Heroes – 2 of Waylon's greatest albums!

Prime period B-Sides, live recordings and other rarities from The Jesus & Mary Chain – great stuff from the first 5 or 6 years of their career – creatively up there with their best work ever!

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 package features a number of tracks that the group were ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Take the title here a bit ironically – as the music is this unusual Korean take on reggae rhythms – maybe more an inspiration from Kingston, filtered through a maturing K-Pop style of the time – although often with some of the qualities that came about when dubbier rhythms were ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s!
