BandMusic From Big Pink ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
The landmark first album from The Band – and along with the follow-up, it's among the greatest records of its time – which is all the more astounding given how independent of late 60s trends it is! Each member of The Band brings such inimitable textures – Garth Hudson's imposing organ grooves, Richard Manuel's aching tenor vocals, Rick Danko's voice and distinctive bass lines, Levon Helm's behind-the-beat drumming and the country wisdom of his voice, Robertson's guitar mastery – this really was THE Band. Includes "Tears Of Rage", "In A Station", "The Weight", "Long Black Veil", "Chest Fever", "Lonesome Suzie", "This Wheels On Fire", "I Shall Be Released" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has some wear along the top seam.)

✨✧ BlondieHeart Of Glass (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Chrysalis, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A crossover classic from the lovely Deborah Harry – a tune that broke Blondie big on the airwaves, yet which also had a great life of its own in the clubs – no doubt due to its driving Giorgio Moroder-influenced disco beat! Yet the track's also got a lot more to live up to, too – an important meeting of punk and disco – reconciled for just a minute, at a level that makes the track a cornerstone for both generations! (Soul, Rock) 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing in a Chrysalis Disco sleeve.)

Zoot MoneyZoot! (aka All Happening Zoot Money's Big Roll Band At Klook's Kleek) ... LP
EMI (UK), 1966. Sealed ... $14.99
Excellent "a go-go" soul from Brit beat group phenom Zoot Money – recorded in a style that was very faithful to his roots in US soul and R&B, but with the usual UK touches. The record was recorded live at the Klook's Kleek nightclub in London – and it's got some of the best work we've heard in this mode from the time. Side two features a tasty "James Brown Medley" with some of James' best funky numbers from the time – plus a funky instrumental reading of "Mashed Potato USA". Other tracks include "Florence Of Arabia", "Chauffer", and "Barefootin". (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent EU reissue on Repertoire.)

✨✧ Amon Duul IIMade In Germany (test pressing) ... LP
Atco, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A big international record from Amon Duul – and for good reason, too – as the set's filled with catchy little tracks that have this really cool blend of prog and glam! The style's almost like Roxy Music at points – with the vocals all compressed in the guitars, and this sinister vibe in the instrumentation – played by a group who clearly know how to stretch out more, but instead pack a lot of experimentation into shorter, groovier space. The vocals are in English, but accented – which gives them a further offbeat vibe – and titles include "The King's Chocolate Waltz", "Emigrant Son", "La Krautoma", "Metropolis", "Gala Gnome", and "Mr Kraut's Jinx". LP, Vinyl record album
(Test pressing in an aged cover with tracklist sheet attached – includes a promo folder with bio and 8"x10" glossy photo!)

✨✧ BeatlesMagical Mystery Tour ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess! The set's incredibly strong throughout – filled with some of the new post-Peppers ideas explored by the group, yet also with some catchier numbers too – great sing-songy tracks that undoubtedly were a big mainstream influence to the world of late 60s psych! Titles include "Blue Jay Way", "The Fool On The Hill", "Flying", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Penny Lane", and "Baby You're A Rich Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Capitol pressing. Booklet is detached, but included. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ John BenderI Don't Remember Now/I Don't Want To Talk About It ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1980. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderfully weird electronics from underground legend John Bender – a set that was recorded in Ohio at the end of the 70s, but never got the circulation of some of the bigger post-punk material of that scene! The style is very offbeat and personal – cold electronics and processed vocals, but with an earnest quality that has Bender really trying to find himself – but in a strange out-there space that's probably in the same neighborhood as Jandek or some of the more experimental work of Arthur Russell! Bender is sometimes linked to the music of Eno or Faust – but the presentation here is much more lo-fi, and much more personal as well. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing.)

✨✧ BlondieParallel Lines ... LP
Chrysalis, 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The breakthrough album by Blondie! Parallel Lines is their third album overall, and having been released only 7 months after their second, you know they were hungry to break big – and they do it here with unbeatable cool. For as tight and bright as as the sound is, a trademark of producer Mike Chapman, there's still something of the raucous downtown energy here – and also some pretty great stylistic strides, such as the disco-aware smash "Heart Of Glass". Includes the equally classic "One Way Or Another" plus "Hanging On The Telephone", "Just Go Away", "I Know But I Don't Know" "Will Anything Happen", "Picture This", "11:59 and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)

GunGun ... LP
Epic, 1968. Very Good ... $24.99
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 bass, and wild eyed vocals – we have to wonder of the label thought it was too menacing and brought in the strings and horns to make it more approachable – but it actually just makes it weirder, which we love! Titles include their hit "Race With The Devil" plus "The Sad Saga Of The Boy And The Bee", "Rupert's Travels", "Yellow Cab Man", "It Won't Be Long (Heartbeat)", "Sunshine", "Rat Race" and"Take Off". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has ring and edgew.)

Bill Haley & His CometsRock Around The Clock ... LP
Decca, 1955. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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", "Birth Of The Boogie", "Dim Dim The Lights", and "Mambo Rock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing.)

Harley HatcherHard Ride – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Paramount, Early 70s. Sealed ... $6.99
A delightfully offbeat soundtrack from the glory days of the biker film – put together by Harley Hatcher, but featuring performances by a whole host of different artists! Hatcher approaches the record with the same sort of vibe that Mike Curb was using for similar projects – working with a bunch of short vocal numbers, most of which are performed by lesser-known groups, in styles that are almost a Sunshine Pop take on biker rock! The big star here is Bill Medley – who sings "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" – and other titles include "The Hard Ride" and "Victorville Blues" by The Sounds Of Harley; "Shannon's Hook Shop" and "Let The Music Play" by Bluewater; "I Came A Long Way To Be With You" and "Carry Me Home" by Thelma Camacho; and "Fallin In Love with Baby" by Junction. (Soundtracks, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(With hype sticker! Cover has a small cutout mark, but is great.)

TurtlesHappy Together ... LP
White Whale, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The title cut may well be the biggest tune The Turtles ever recorded – but the whole album's overflowing with the group's brilliance – and their wonderful ear for offbeat tunes for the Sunshine Pop generation! As with "Happy Together", there's a nice edge to a lot of the tracks here – sweet, but with currents of darkness too – as if the group's looking at pop from the outside – able to effortlessly do their thing, while also twisting things around a bit. Yet they also take themselves more than seriously enough to hit pop perfection throughout – on titles that include "Guide For The Married Man", "The Walking Song", "Think I'll Run Away", "Happy Together", "She'd Rather Be With Me", "Like The Seasons", and "Rugs Of Woods & Flowers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

WhoMeaty Beaty Big & Bouncy ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled from the group's earliest years, and awash in mod rhythms, tight guitars, and lyrics that are quite edgey – even in the format of a two-minute pop tune. Titles include "Boris The Spider", "Happy Jack", "Pictures Of Lily", "My Generation", "The Seeker", "I Can't Explain", "The Kids Are Alright", "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere", "A Legal Matter", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy", and "Pinball Wizard". LP, Vinyl record album
(Decca pressing. Cover has some wear.)
