The only full album ever issued by Maximum Joy – a highly rhythmic group whose singles were one of the real bright spots of the post-punk years!

John Mayall's Blues Breakers —
Crusade ... LP London, 1967. Very Good ...
John Mayall's on a new crusade here – hitting lines that are almost more truly blusey than his previous albums – thanks to a new lineup in the Blues Breakers combo! Alongside Mayall's lead on vocals, organ, harmonica, and bottleneck guitar – the group also features Mick Taylor on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A definite diary of this unique British combo of the 60s – and a set that's arguably one of the band's bluesiest to date! The set features live recordings from 1967 – most very long and stretched-out, with a feel that's arguably even more rootsy than any American blues of the time ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

There's definitely elements here of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A moody little soundtrack – but one that stands strongly on its own as a record – thanks to inventive weaving of vocals, tapes, and electronics from Shawn Pinchbeck and Rose McDowell! Rose has a voice that might be light and airy in another setting, but which is layered here in gentle ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The set's got a blistering array of guitars right up front in the mix ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The Mekons return to their roots – and rework the sound of their initial year of 1977 – a gritty, raw take on early UK punk modes – the sound that was strongly associated with their scene in Leeds, and very different than the more roots-inspired styles that have become better ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Metallica takes a break from cementing the legacy of thrash metal, after their Master Of Puppets tour, with this fun covers EP paying homage to few of their own heroes – from UK metal heroes Diamond Head and Holocaust, to hard rock forbears Budgie, to postpunk iconoclasts Killing Joke, to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The title's a bit of a joke, but it points the way towards the nature of this very special project – as the "S" is the San Francisco Symphony, working with the "M" of Metallica – all in a very special blend of their own sounds with some larger orchestrations ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

I A De Sars ... LP Ventadorn/Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)...
An album from the mid 70s, but one that's got an almost timeless sort of vibe – given that it was recorded in the ancient language of Occitan, and set to instrumentation with lots of lightly folksy touches, and a fair bit of jazz-styled phrasing too! The mix almost gives the set the feel of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Moby Grape's self-conscious, but hardly less groovy late 60s excursion into loose, free form and largely instrumental psychedelia – the sweet and therefore appropriately titled Grape Jam! GJ is really a world away from their earlier rock regalia – with superstar special guests Al " ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Haunting early work by Meredith Monk – recorded in 1971, and performed by a small group of vocalists – all working with Monk in an incredible presentation of her new ideas for voice!

The first solo album from Anthony Moore – best known as one of the founding members of Slapp Happy, but here emerging as a hell of a contemporary composer – with an approach that ties together the avant and underground rock worlds of the early 70s – a bit like some of the Brian ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Really lovely work from Anthony Moore – a contemporary composer in the early 70s, but one with strong ties to the art work world too!

A prog monster from mid 70s Quebec – and a great example of the well-crafted instrumentation that often graced that scene, but hardly ever got its due on our side of the border! Morse Code are a quartet – with fantastic guitar, keyboard, bass, and drums – and guitarist Daniel ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A hard rock gem from early 70s Canada – recorded with this cool production style that seems to push everything up around the edges, from the vocals, to the basslines, to the searing fuzzy guitars! The group do a great job of mixing in some airier numbers with the rockers – almost ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A heavy effort from Motorhead that started a new phase for the metal pioneers – their only record with ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson in the group! A few of the songs are the oud, fast, blistering Motorhead at their most incendiary – and on the other tracks they're a bit more ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Solid jamming from Mountain – one of the tightest guitar-based groups of their day, and hard rockers that could serve up a nice dose of soul!

The Move are looking a bit fuzzier here than in their earlier years – and they're sounding a bit fuzzier too, but in a way that's totally great! The group's down to a quartet, which seems to bring even more focus on the great vocals of Carl Wayne, and heady guitar of Roy Wood! There's a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original brown label pressing. Cover has light wear.)
Wonderful early work from Mama Cass and Denny Doherty – heard here in a pre-Mamas & Papas group from the east coast! The Mugwups have a sound that's quite unusual, even for their time – in that their approach is folk, but one that's electrified a fair bit before most other groups ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Freewheeling synth extravanza from Don Muro – one that covers a lot stylistic territory – from fusiony instrumentals, to cosmic keyboard dance music, to anthemic spacey rock – and it does all incredibly well! Muro plays an array of synthesizer systems and keyboards here – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Myndflower is a very cool trippy, hypnotic one-man instrumental project from Javier Gonzalez – the groovy musician who's also behind the groups Boogaloo Communicators and Indo-Sonix, but who manages to make some equally special sounds here as a solo act! The record's got a heady sound that's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
There's a vampire with a flute on the cover – and that image alone is more than enough to make us drop the needle on this rare Japanese gem from the 70s!
