Brewer & ShipleyWeeds ... CD
Kama Sutra/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
The duo of Michael Brewer and Tom Shipley are mostly remembered for their one big radio hit – but the pair have a wonderful sound that's ripe for rediscovery – right up there with much more frequently-lauded contemporaries from the west coast scene! The pair harmonize in this great post-folk style – acoustic guitars mixed with lots of other grooviness in the instrumentation – never too roots rock, and instead bouncing around with a lot more canyon coolness – which keeps things really interesting all the way through! The duo perform a great version of Jim Pepper's "Witchi Tai To", with tablas for percussion – and other titles include "Lady Like You", "Rise Up", "Boomerang", "People Love Each Other", "Oh Sweet Lady", and "Pig's Head".

DustHard Attack ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1972. Sealed Gatefold ... $19.99
A definite hard attack from Dust – a set that really lives up to its Frank Frazetta cover image at the best moments – but also has some surprising acoustic elements, too! Dust are way more than just the usual hard rock trio of the early 70s – as they mix in pedal steel and acoustic guitar with their fuzz and heavy drums – creating a complexity that you'd expect much more from a prog group, even though these guys have the tighter focus of some of the fiercest power trios of their generation! The mix of modes is great, and really gives the songs some depth – with gentle vocals that offset the fiercer ones – and titles include "Pull Away/So Many Times", "Learning To Die", "All In All", "Ivory", "I Been Thinkin", "How Many Horses", and "Suicide". LP, Vinyl record album

Flamin GrooviesGonna Rock Tonight – The Complete Recordings 1969 to 1971 (Supersnazz/Flamingo/Teenage Head/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Kama Sutra/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The birth of genius – the first three albums by Flamin Groovies, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Supersnazz – the first album from legendary San Francisco rockers the Flaming Groovies – and the cleaner horn-accented blueprint for the shakey, skronky structure to come! Supersnazz has a bit of a sibling in the first Stooges LP – in that the palatable production only hints at the insanity of later records – but it's a good rocking record all the same, a good site stranger, fierier and groovier than most of their contemporaries could muster! Tracks include "Love Have Mercy", "Laurie Did It", "Rockin' Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu", "The First One's Free", "Pagan Rachel", "Pistol Packin' Mama", "Brushfire", "Around The Corner" and more. Flamingo is one of the finest moments ever from The Flamin Groovies – a set that's awash in 50s rock and roll influences, yet filtered through the heady late 60s San Francisco scene – making for a mix that's completely compelling throughout, and unlike anything else we can think of! The Groovies might initially seem like retro-rockers, yet they've got this sharp edge that makes their music more of a commentary on rock and roll, and its roots as well – uttered beautifully at a time when so many others were falling into excess, but also done without any of the "roots" cliches that others were embracing in a much clunkier way! It's hard to sum up adequately, but the record's almost a leap forward from Gene Vincent over 60s psyche – but on its way to the rough edges embraced by the UK punk scene in years to come – kind of that odd space that the Modern Lovers hit with their Kim Fowley recordings, but much more rocking overall. Most numbers are originals from vocalist Roy Loney – and titles include "Comin After Me", "Headin For The Texas Border", "Second Cousin", "Childhood's End", "Jailbait", and "She's Falling Apart". Teenage Head is maybe the best-remembered album ever from the all-great Flaming Groovies – and a set with a classic cover image that really lives up to the music! The Groovies have an unusual blend of old school rocking with hipper post-60s sensibilities – almost their own faux-retro sound to rival some of the west coast modes from the Warner scene – but with a grittier NYC presentation that's really wonderful, and which made the record a key force in the pre-punk years! One of those true treasures that just keeps on giving over the years – a record of subtle brilliance that just gets better and better with each new listen. Titles include "High Flyin Baby", "City Lights", "Yesterday's Numbers", "Whiskey Woman", and "Evil Hearted Ada". 3CD set features a whopping 17 bonus tracks – including "Louie Louie", "Shakin All Over", "Carol", "Scratch My Back", "Rumble", "Somethin Else", "Going Out (version 2)", "Walking The Dog", "The First One's Free (single)", "Around & Around", and "My Girl Josephine.

InnocenceInnocence ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The only album from The Innocence – a cool little group with a really playful pop feel – one that's definitely cut from the same cloth as other Kama Sutra groups from the Lovin Spoonful generation! The core sounds here are from the duo of Pete Anders and Vinnie Poncia – who often use relatively spare instrumentation, almost as if they're building the tunes up from scratch in the studio, demo-style – while still layering some great vocals over the top. Jimmy Wisner did a good deal of the arrangements here, but he still preserves the personal feel of the songs – a kind of simple, joyful pop that almost reminds us of Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends on A&M! Titles include "All I Ask", "Someone Got Caught In My Eye", "There's Got To Be A Word", "I Don't Wanna Be Around You", "It's Not Gonna Take Too Long", "Whence I Make Thee Mine", and "A Lifetime Lovin You". LP, Vinyl record album

Lovin SpoonfulDo You Believe In Magic ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1965. Very Good ... $14.99
Here it is – the first Spoonful LP in all its sunny, groovy glory – and the sum is so much more than just a great single! Like the Byrds, the group is built on traditionally structured back-porch melodies. In the case of the Spoonful, jug band influences provide the core rhythmic groove, but the stratospheric tendencies of mid-to-late 60s pop really pushes them into something special and all their own. Tracks include "Younger Girl", "Other Side Of This Life", "Sportin Life", "You Baby", "My Gal", "Do You Believe In Magic", and "Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind". Timeless, sunny, wistful groovy grooves for the ages! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono yellow label pressing without deep groove.)

✨✧ Lovin SpoonfulWhat's Up Tiger Lily? ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1966. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An excellent soundtrack to one of the wildest Woody Allen movies ever made – a weird little film that has Woody dubbing fake English dialogue over a Japanese action picture! The music by Lovin Spoonful is equally great – a bit groovier than some of their other albums of the time – with a few straight vocal numbers, done in the Spoonful's regular style – and some great instrumentals, including the slow funky number "Speakin Of Spoken", which has a slow guitar break sound that's really great! Woody Allen delivers the "Introduction To Flick", and other tracks include "Phil's Love Theme", "Lookin To Spy", "Pow", and "End Title". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a cutout hole.)

TradewindsExcursions ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A rare full album from The Tradewinds – a wonderful harmony pop group with a Sunshine Pop feel! The Tradewinds have a style that's heavily in a Beach Boys mode – sunny California harmonies on the vocals, and a sort of post-Pet Sounds approach to songwriting – one that makes for some really compelling songs in the set! The group's best known for their "New York's A Lonely Town" hit, but the whole album is great – filled with inventive songs, compelling vocals, and cool arrangements from Jimmy Wisner and Artie Butler – two very groovy talents. Titles include "Mind Excursion", "Bad Misunderstanding", "Only When I'm Dreamin", "Small Town Bring Down", "To Be With You", "Little Susan's Dreamin", and "Huggin In The Hall". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s Japanese Victor pressing, including the insert.)

✨✧ Lovin SpoonfulRevelation Revolution 69 ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the trippiest efforts from the Lovin Spoonful – an album recorded after John Sebastian left the group, and Joe Butler took over – leading the group into some nicely tripped-out territory for the set! The album's still got some echoes of the Spoonful's earlier folk/pop roots, but the sound is also more complex too – mature and thoughtful at some points, sonically experimental at others – put together with some cool arrangements from Richard Rome, Bob Finiz, and Butler – all of whom push the record into a mode that's almost more singer/songwriter than before. Some numbers have some cool studio bits and experiments, and titles include "War Games", "Till I Run With You", "Never Going Back", "Amazing Air", "Jug Of Wine", "Words", and "Revelation Revolution 69". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lovin SpoonfulYou're A Big Boy Now ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola's first film, and a surprisingly groovy batch of tracks! John Sebastian composed the whole score, and unlike most of the other albums by The Lovin Spoonful, this one's got a lot of instrumental numbers, arranged by the great Artie Schroek – short little grooves with a really nice feel, and mixes of percussion, horns, and guitar that come off with a great groovy 60s sound! The vocal numbers are pretty great too – and titles include the sublime "Darling Be Home Soon", plus "Miss Thing's Thing", "Letter To Barbara", "March", "The Finale", "Try & Be Happy", "Wash Her Away", and "Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing.)

Golden GateYear One ... LP
Audio Fidelity, 1969. Very Good ... $14.99
Tripped-out sunshine pop from the end of the 60s – the only outing ever from The Golden Gate, a group put together by the team of Billy Carlucci and Reid Whitelaw, who were probably best known for their bubblegum pop work over at Kama Sutra! The sound of this one's quite deeper than any simple pop, though – much headier stuff that clearly draws from the best post-Smile Beach Boys years, and the offbeat Four Seasons experiments of the time – fusing older east coast harmony styles onto a more expansive, ambitious instrumental groove, with really sublime results! Although quite unknown, the album's a true late 60s Sunshine treasure – one that's well worth tracking down, and filled with killer cuts that include "Contrary To Mary", "Ready Willing & Able", "High On A Melody", "Monday After Sunday", and "Diane". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has surface wear.)
