The swells in the title are those of the Pacific Ocean – right alongside the sunny Cali shores of the 70s, where this gem of a record was created! The album's got all the best charms of classic AOR material by folks like Ned Doheny or Steely Dan – but it's maybe even more amazing given ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Southern rock meets southern soul – all in this groundbreaking set from the team of Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett! The quality quotient here is quite high – light years beyond so many later folks who tried for this territory, but then slicked it up for radio airplay – and in ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Roots rock but with a strongly soulful undercurrent – thanks to key late 60s Stax production from Donald Duck Dunn and Don Nix, both of whom make the record sound a lot hipper than many other similar sets from the time! The record showcases the singing and songwriting talents of Delaney and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Delaney & Bonnie —
Motel Shot ... LP Atco, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
Maybe one of the purest expressions of the genius of Bonnie and Delaney Bramlett – an album that was recorded to feel like it was done in a motel room – with a stripped-down vibe that really gets at the best energy of the pair! Roots rock mixes with blue-eyed soul, gospel piano, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett certainly have some heavy friends here – a stunning host of guest help on the record, who make the whole thing come together with a sweet blend of southern rock and soul! The duo were always almost more of a soul act than a rock one, and that quality really shows ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the highest points in the solo career of Sandy Denny – a set that has her working with a hip array of British musical contemporaries, but also getting some sublime larger orchestrations from Harry Robinson and Bob Leaper too! The mix of folksy elements and higher ideals is wonderful ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Diane Denoir —
Diane Denoir ... LP Discos De Planta/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)...
The debut album from Uruguayan singer Diane Denoir – served up with heavy help from Eduardo Mateo of the legendary group El Kinto! Like Mateo's work, the music here is a bit beyond easy comparison – in a rock or pop structure, but with lots of deeper ideas too – a bit like the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Derek & The Dominos —

One of Eric Clapton's greatest moments – and a set that also features guitars from Duane Allman and organ from Bobby Whitlock! Recorded in Miami at Criteria Studios – and titles include "Layla", "It's Too Late", "Little Wing", "Have You Ever Loved A ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Franck Dervieux —
Dimension M ... LP Return To Analog (Canada), 1972. New Copy (reissue)...
Franck Dervieux takes off to Dimension M in this very cool set of prog tracks from the Montreal scene of the 70s – music that's heavy on Franck's own work on piano, organ, and electric piano – driven onwards by a tight little combo, and topped with some occasional wordless vocals from ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly the hippest album ever recorded by Lizzy Mercier Descloux – a session done in South Africa, and featuring a variety of unusual rhythms! The sound here isn't conventional African pop, and like other gems from the Ze Records catalog, this set blends together a number of styles ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Destroy All Monsters —
Live ... LP Fan Club (France), 1989. Sealed ...
Just Sold Out!
A lost treasure from the post-Krautrock years of the German scene – a lesser-known album on the Sky Records label – more famously home to Moebius and Rodelius – both of whom would be a good comparison for this album as well! Dorothea Raukes handles all the music on waves of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram red vinyl pressing, limited to 500 copies.)
Devo's second album didn't scare the bejesus out of 70s rock fans in the way of their agitpop masterpiece debut, and the group's mainstream salad days of "Whip It" were still another year or two away, but nowadays we wouldn't trade Duty Now For The Future for just about any post punk ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(New Zealand pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y-eah, this is one of best art rock albums of all time – the Eno produced full length debut of Devo – the caustic, sarcastic and fun soundtrack to society's devolution! There's nothing we don't love about Devo at this point, from their ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A really cool set from a really groovy trio – a group from Hong Kong, but who sing in English, and have a great mix of jazz and soft rock styles! Danny sings, plays guitar and beer cans – and Rudy and Romeo harmonize while playing bass, keyboards, flute, and rice tins – on tunes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: record has an edge warp, but played fine for us. Cover has autographs on back, and some light wear.)
Heavy rock, fist clenching anthems, poker-faced parodies of love songs and keyboard peppered songs about a body covered in scabs. No sir, there will never be another Dictators! These guys should have been on kid's lunchboxes and Kiss should been dropped by their labels and consigned to cult ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sharp slice of prog from the French Canadian scene of the 70s – served up by a group who realize that they actually do more with less by the time of this third album – a set that's filled with short tunes that have all these wonderfully focused, jazzy instrumental touches! The group ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pretty sweet blues rock combo from the glory days of the Bluesway label – featuring Rod Gingerman Piazza on vocal and harmonica – with Pat Maloney on organ and piano, Jimmy Forrest on tenor, Rick Lunetta on guitar, Freddie Hill on trumpet, and Willie Green on baritone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has marker on the front, light wear, and a small cutout hole.)
A wonderful complement to the Donovan studio albums from the late 60s – a well-recorded live date from the US. The style of the tunes is a bit different than some of their more famous album and single versions – with a relaxed approach to the work that leans a bit more on some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has some surface wear and aging.)
One of the trippiest albums ever from Donovan, as you might guess from the title – a double-length gem that's filled with wonderfully groovy tunes! The set was cut during Donovan's killer years with producer Mickie Most in the late 60s – and it's got an instrumental feel that's even ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing, including the booklet. Box has split corners, wear and stains.)
An American release from the early 70s, but one that features material from right at the start of Donovan's career – a time when it was mostly just his voice and acoustic guitar, on titles that include "The Ballad Of Geraldine", "Do You hear Me Now", "Cuttin Out" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear and a cutout hole. Labels have a cutout hole.)
Easily one of Donovan's most successful albums – but also a brilliant blend of folk and jazz that forged a bold new sound in the 60s! Part of the strength of the set comes from arranger John Cameron – an artist that we love for his jazz and easy work of the late 60s, and who's working ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono yellow label pressing, matrix ending in 1C.)
One of the grooviest albums of the 60s – and the first album in Donovan's legendary run with producer Mickie Most! The sound here is light years away from the heavy Dylan of Donovan's first recordings – and is steeped in eastern influences that sparkle in both the songwriting and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono yellow label pressing. Cover has some surface wear and writing in pen on back.)
One of Donovan's greatest albums! This LP is a perfect blend of pop psychedelia – complicated little songs that sum more in a short space than some of Donovan's contemporaries could do in a single album side. Nearly every cut on here is a tiny little 3 minute gem – and tunes include ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)
A legendary performance by The Doors – recorded in front of one of the largest audiences they ever faced, at a time when Jim Morrison was starting to unravel a bit – but still able to knock it out of the park on the kind of extended performances the group deliver here! Includes long ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Recent 180 gram vinyl, still sealed, but with bent corners.)
New industrial modes from Philippe Doray and his group of French experimentalists – not sounds that fall into the industrial dance world of the late 80s, but those very early, groundbreaking creations from Throbbing Gristle and the rest of their generation! This album's maybe slightly more ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groundbreaking work from the Paris scene of the 70s – a record that's kind of post-prog, post-improvisation, and which maybe sets the scene for sonic experiments on the UK scene in years to come! Philippe Doray is at the helm of his antisocial associates here – a quintet that mixes ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic little surf soundtrack record – and one that's very different than both the guitar instrumental and jazz-based albums that showed up earlier in the genre! This one is much more like some of the Australian rock scores that started to show up at the end of the 60s – very ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Godlike work from the legendary Nick Drake – and exactly the kind of record that's made him a continuing legend over the years! The style is completely its own – not really folk or rock, but not really jazz either – yet served up with plenty of jazzy phrasing that's helped keep ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Cool Canadian vocals from Dwight Druick – a singer who works in French with a very soulful sound overall! The album's partly got the feel of some of the best compressed crossover work of the US scene of the mid 70s – but it's also got a jazzier feel overall too, one that brings a ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most incredible rock albums of all time – Dylan's sprawling, shambling, poetic genius at it's most revolutionary if you ask us – the landmark Blonde On Blonde! It's got that surrealistic, 4AM and still bursting with creativity kind of feeling that he'd never even try to find ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 360 Sound label pressing, with promo stickers, in the Claudia cover! Vinyl has some sleeve marks, with a mark that clicks a bit on "I Want You". Cover has some ring & edge wear, a bit heavy at the middle of the spine.)
Titles include "Meet Me In The Morning", "Shelter From The Storm", "Idiot Wind", "You're A Big Girl Now", "If You See Her, Say Hello", "Buckets Of Rain", and "Tangled Up In Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing with barcode on the back cover. Cover has a wrinkled corner.)
The first album, and a bit more straight folksy than later work – but still with some amazing young flashes of genius! Titles include "Highway 51", "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean", "Song To Woody", "Man Of Constant Sorrow", "Fixin To Die", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing with white text, matrix ending in 1B/1H. Cover has some ring & edge wear and a Demonstration ink stamp on back.)

(White label pressing with 417/111 matrix in a red stamped sleeve. Sleeve has light aging along one side, but record is great.)

(Grey label pressing in a stamped cover, with some wear, light stains, a bit of marker, and masking tape on the top seam. Vinyl has some deeper marks that click on the first song on each side.)

(Stereo 360 Sound pressing with white text, matrix ending 1AB/1K. Cover has a name in pen, some adhesive residue on the front, aging, and a mostly split bottom seam.)
A mysterious record, with no cover art, no label, and just a hand-written title – but a set that features one side of great Dylan work with just vocals and guitar – very rough, and nicely bluesy! The second side has material that's more in a Basement Tapes mode, but might be later too. LP, Vinyl record album
An unusual set of recordings – done together in Charlotte, NC on January 17, 1974! LP, Vinyl record album
(In a hand-pasted cover – which has a light wrinkle in the artwork on the front, and an upside down image on the back.)

(Original 70s pressing, still sealed with hype sticker. Shrinkwrap has a small hole in front from sticker removal, nice and clean otherwise.)
Duane's twangy guitar sound is applied to the water skiing scene, in what was probably an attempt to establish a new trend away from surf or hot rod instrumentals. The sound, however, is very much in the surf/hot rod style – with lots of groovy "twang" out front, and zippy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stormer from Dave's best solo years – with titles that include "Baby I Love You", "Let It Rock", "Billy The Kid", "Born To be With You", "Maybe", "Leave My Woman Alone", and "No Money Down". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's given us some classics over the years – standout tracks like "Mr Blue ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
