(Limited edition with bonus 7 inch including "Love Sick (rmx)" & "Cold Irons Bound (live)".)
Not the instrumental music from the second season of the Stranger Things series – but instead all of those very cool early 80s songs that are always playing in the background – tunes that have turned out to be almost as important to the show as the 70s music was to the Guardians Of The ...

Pearl Jam —
Ten ... LP Epic, 1991. New Copy ...
Anthemic early 90s rock from Pearl Jam – one of the biggest debuts of all time and for good reason! Ten has a big, classic rock-reared sound, but done with such forthright sincerity and for the time, completely refreshing lack of macho posturing, it really was the perfect formula for a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Experience Hendrix – a phrase that's become a calling card for the proper presentation of the musical legacy of Jimi Hendrix, but which first appeared here on a classic collection of his most famous tracks! The set's about as strong as you might expect from a Hendrix "best of" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest albums from The Kinks – the kind of material that pulled them strongly past their bluesy, garagey roots – into a role that has them giving some of the clearest, keenest visions of 20th Century British society – with all of its joys and worries! The tunes here ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
The moment when the group were really starting to ascend to greatness – with titles that include "Yours Is No Disgrace", "Starship Tropper", "I've Seen All Good People", and "Perpetual Change". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Zappa —
Hot Rats ... LP Bizarre, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
One of those records that should be an insane dark mess, given the look of the cover – but which turns out to be a surprisingly well put-together effort all the way through! Zappa does a great job of hiding behind his hair here – never acting with the pomp that a pop genius like him ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label Reprise pressing. Cover has light wear.)
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through! Maria's working here with some older folksy contemporaries – like David Grisman, Ry Cooder, and ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Strange compilation focusing on a bunch of San Francisco rock and funk groups produced by Abe "Voco" Kesh.

Twin Peaks ... LP Columbia/Windfall, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
Seminal record from one of the most important hardcore bands to walk the earth – and DC underground classic that hit the scene like a lightning bolt to the White House – that cover art speaks the truth! Bad Brains (the album) was originally issued on the then cassette-only ROIR label ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The debut of Tom Waits – a prettier, less gravelly-voiced and less knowingly seedy effort as the albums to come – and a set that's as tender as any that Waits would ever record! This is Waits in after hours yearning mode, still upright on a barstool or a piano bench, not yet having ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Tangerine Dream's incredible, synthy soundtrack to Thief – which is one of the coolest crime flicks ever made in the City Of Chicago – and as great as director Michael Mann and star James Caan are, the soundtrack has a lot to do with that!

Great big Dee-troit rawk, like no other group of madmen could have ever created! This is the album that established the Motor City as the capital of late 60s/early 70s gonzo psychedelic rock, and still stands as probably the most massive live recording of the era. Pile-driving outer space noise ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A dream – and the fab first LP by Harpers Bizarre! The group were one of the strangest pop ensembles operating in the seminal LA scene of the mid 60s – ostensibly a sweet harmony vocal group, but with a strangely childish approach that also had an ear open for the mind-blowing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Zebra ... LP Atlantic, 1983. Used ...
Just Sold Out!
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine! Ellen's certainly not a soul artist – but she's got a particularly soulful approach to folk rock – one that's made her a favorite of groovers worldwide in the past few decades, thanks to a big push from Gilles Peterson, and the club scene ...

The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the three great collaborations between David Bowie and Brian Eno – and possibly the ultimate statement from his years in Berlin! The album's got some tunes that still show some of the guitar power of the early 70s Bowie – but it's also got some of the beautiful spacier moments ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
American avant rock treasures Yo La Tengo's 15th album, and no, it's not a covers set of the legendary, almost same-titled album by Sly & The Family Stone, but a murkily melodic, fuzzy, moody, beautiful set of songs as richly inspired by their myriad, oft-stated, readily-acknowledged influences ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Cocteau Twins at the height of their powers – really honing in on that special blend of sounds that made their music so unique – while also finding a way to be even more tuneful than before!

(2018 Rhino Start Your Ear Off Right exclusive. Limited edition purple colored vinyl!)
A warm, timeless batch of tunes from Golden Smog – by this point a bonafide late 90s neo-classic Americana (none of these fellows ever seemed all that fond of being tagged as "alt-country" so we won't do that to 'em) supergroup – a loose collective over the years which in ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(2018 Rhino Start Your Ear Off Right exclusive. Green colored vinyl with etched vinyl.)
Classic work from this Texas trio – pulled from a time when they were still super-hip, and one of the freshest mainstream things to come from their scene!

(2018 Rhino Start Your Ear Off Right exclusive. Mud brown colored vinyl!)
Haunting work from Sunny War – a singer/songwriter who's got a very rootsy style on acoustic guitar, but who uses the instrument in different ways to back up her more contemporary lyrics! A few steps to the right, and she might be too traditional – but Sunny's got this very fresh, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unimpeachable metal masterpiece!

(180 gram pressing on Metallica's own Blackened label – at a great price!)
The fantastic first album from ZZ Top – already a heady mix of Texas blues and psych roots, served up into a style that's completely the group's own – but which hasn't yet been watered down by commercial cliches and MTV! The sound here really puts these guys much more in the company of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The early 70s glam masterpiece from T Rex – setting the standard for the sounds to come – and pop landmark status aside, it's probably the best album Bolan, Mickey Finn and the group ever cut!

A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album!

The debut album by Weezer! The now-dubbed Blue Album was released at the height of the post-Nirvana rock era, with whom the much more enthusiastic Weezer even shared label – and that very enthusiasm made them heroes to some and pariahs to others at the time.

Stink ... LP United Artists, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ...

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!

Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description!

Moody genius from Can – and one of greatest albums of its time!

An excellent album of party grooves from The Hombres – a bit sunshine pop, a bit folk rock, but with some nice earthy touches that almost bring in a bit of a beat group feel to the set!
