SelecterToo Much Pressure (3CD set) ... CD
2 Tone/Chrysalis (UK), 1980. New Copy 3CD ... $15.99 17.98
One of the greatest groups of the legendary 2 Tone records scene at the start of the 80s – and a group that's maybe got an even harder edge than their more familiar labelmates, The Specials! The groove here is revival ska, but with a lean, jagged quality that's very different than so many of the softer groups that sprang up in later years – definitely tied more to the sound of the late 70s punk years, overall – thanks in part to the urgency of the lead vocals of Pauline Black, who really seems to dominate the lyrics over the group's other singer, Arthur Hendrickson. Instrumentation is nice and spare – which keeps the sound sharp – and titles include "Missing Words", "My Collie (Not A Dog)", "Three Minute Hero", "Too Much Pressure", "Murder", "Out On The Streets" and "James Bond". Huge 3CD package – CD2 features singles, b-sides, and rarities – 17 tracks in all – and CD3 features live shows from Coventry and Hempstead, 16 more tracks, both previously unissued! CD
Also available Too Much Pressure (180 gram half-speed master pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP 26.99

✨✧ Procol HarumSomething Magic (2CD edtiion – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chrysalis/Esoteric (UK), 1977. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Relatively late work in the classic years of Procol Harum – but as any true fan of the group will tell you, these guys never stopped being great – even if the rest of the world wasn't paying as close of attention as they were back in the 60s! Gary Brooker's vocals and piano are still going strong – and the songs have that great sense of structure and subtle drama that always made the group so unique – a mode that other groups might have overdone, but which is so well balanced here, the sound is completely sublime – full-on sonic punch one minute, spare elements the next – all handled with an honest, open vibe that was pretty darn unique in the glossy music world of 1977. Titles include "Strangers In Space", "Wizard Man", "Something Magic", "Skating On Thin Ice", "The Worm & The Tree", and "The Mark Of The Claw". 2CD set features bonus tracks "Backgammon", "You'd Better Wait (live)", and "This Old Dog (live)" – plus a full bonus CD that bfeatures a BBC Radio In Concert performance from 1977 – 11 more tracks, most from earlier years!
