The first appearance of the Frippertronics delay line built by Fripp and Eno out of a couple of tape decks. Somehow even though this is nearly pure process music, it manages to sound far from dated, cliched or boring – ambient bliss meets only slightly noodly prog guitar in a hall of mirrors. ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Three full albums of romping organ work from Wynder K Frog – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Sunshine Superfrog – a record with a Donovan reference in the title, but a much more mod set overall – thanks to searing Hammond work from organist Mick Weaver, who was maybe ... read moreCD
The second great Fugazi album, or first, depending on how ya want to define define "album" and how self-righteous you are in that opinion (don't know about you, but it's difficult for us to think of 13 Songs as a compilation) – but it's great all the same! Loud, angry and punchy in ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue, including the heavy inner sleeve.)
Tremendous work from the great Bobby Fuller – not the early Texas tapes that have recently been the stuff of much interest on the market – but instead the well-crafted singles he cut in Los Angeles – working at the Mustang label with pop maestro Bob Keane! These tunes are still ... read moreCD
An all-German version of Peter Gabriel's third album! Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has splitting on the spine and some surface wear.)
A record that some might call the last truly great Peter Gabriel album – and a key cap to his excellent initial solo run! The album's got a deeper feel than before – slightly richer colors, more spiritual themes, and arguably more of a sense of majesty – almost an echo of some of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

So ... LP Geffen, 1986. Very Good+ ...
Wonderfully free-wheeling sounds from this hip German trio – maybe not one of the biggest groups of the Krautrock generation, but one who definitely earn their name with the music on this album! The set's got a long-spun approach to the tunes, which are all quite long – layers of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
2 of the later records from Gang Of Four's original run on 1 CD! Hard was a bit of an attempt to dive into early 80s mainstream soul – and stands the test of time a lot better than we would have expected, despite the super-polished production that all but buries the group's earlier harder-edg ... read moreCD
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a name in pen.)
A sweet 60s album – as trippy and nice as it sounds from the title! Gale's got a nice voice – one that's a bit folksy, but more confident than the average folkie of the time – with bits of blues, country, and rock that creep into the lyrics at just the right moments. The album's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye mono white label promo. Cover has promo and tracklist stickers, some wear and aging, and splitting in the bottom seam.)
Genius work by a singer-songwriter you've never heard of – a beautiful little album recorded in late 60s Paris, but done with English language lyrics! Nick Garrie's a hell of a great songwriter – one with the poetry of Leonard Cohen, the fragility of Tim Hardin, and the willingness to ... read moreCD

An album we come back to more and more over the years – a bit more subtle than some of the other Gabriel-era Genesis records, but in a good way! Titles include "Aisle Of Plenty", "More Fool Me", "Firth Of Fifth", "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(UK "small hatter" pressing, including insert. Cover has some ringwear, partially unglued top seam, small initials in pen, and a Jem Import sticker on front.)

Rare Montreal punk from Genetic Control – tracks from the group's hard-to-find 7" EP, matched here with a wealth of unreleased songs too! The songs are completely hardcore, and completely hard-driving – played at a pace and with intensity that matches the leading lights of the LA ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A key late 60s country crossover set, but one that also inspired a fair bit of funk as well! The title cut's a well-known gem – one that's been covered instrumentally in some break-heavy versions, but which sounds even more amazing here in Bobbie's original version – one of the ...

Vintage 70s & 80s recordings from the George-Edwards Group – whose recorded legacy, we thought, was held almost completely by the cosmic psych/synth folk rarity 38:38 LP – but here's more from their personal Archives! Ed and Ray both provide vocals, keyboards and percussion – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A biker soundtrack to end all biker soundtracks – one that shares plenty of elements with better-known entries in the genre, but which also has some really wild and offbeat moments! As with most of the short-lived motorcycle soundtrack era, the vibe here is much more rock than other film ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the darkest albums of the Krautrock scene in the 70s – an album that was actually recorded in a WWII-era bunker – where the duo were free to open up their instruments, jam for a very long time, and play with the sorts of effects and techniques you might know from bigger groups of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Just Sold Out!
The one-and-only proper album from The Germs – one of the last great west coast punk records of the 70s! The sound is nice and raw, with recent Runaway and soon-to-be solo star Joan Jett handling the production – and she lets the Germs be the Germs, if ever so slightly less ragged than ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A set that's definitely funky, but which maybe has a lot more going on as well – richer production moments that move between ambitious soundscapes and fuzzier freakouts – but all without losing the groove at the core! The record's billed as "mysterious", but really seems to ... (Deep Funk, Rock)read moreCD

An incredible combination of talents – all with results that are even greater than the sum of its parts – as the voice of Beth Gibbons fronts Symphony No 3 by Henryk Gorecki, all beautifully conducted by the hands of Krzystof Penderecki! Somehow, there's a quality here that's really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Indie exclusive deluxe edition – in a gatefold sleeve, with 16 page booklet, and a bonus DVD of the very vivid concert!)
A killer collection that really gets right to the heart of the genius of the young Don Gibson – a singer who was raised up during the early years of rock (as you might guess form his hair on the cover) – but who was steadfastly country in his delivery, as part of a legacy that went on ...

Nate Gibson wrote the book on Starday Records – literally, a fantastic book on the history of the important rock and country music label – and here, he adds to the legacy of Starday by pulling together a host of older artists who recorded for the company, and taking them back in the ...

A pair of late 60s albums from the great Dana Gillespie – back to back on a single CD! First up is Foolish Seasons – a great little album from vocalist Dana Gillespie – one that's done in a style that's much sweeter than some of her later work, and which features superb ... read moreCD
Raw proto punk inspired savagery from the late 70s Detroit underground! Matt Gimmick's Detroit Renaissance '79 is the quintessential slice of the kind of unorthodox punk rock that Detroit did different and better than any other scene – as pummeling and charged as any of the simpler 4 chord ... read more7-inch, Vinyl record
Maybe one of the coolest albums of poetry ever recorded – a set that features a young, pre-hippie Allen Ginsberg – delivering his epic poem Howel, plus some other key works too. The young Ginsberg's voice is great – and really fills the works with a lot of bitterness and cynicism ... (Comedy/Spoken, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Deluxe edition box set – 180 gram red vinyl pressing in tip-on jacket – packaged with a book of new liner notes, a copy of the original City Lights book Howl & Other Poems, a postcard, and 8x10 photo of Ginsberg!)

The second of two albums by the obscure Glass Prism – and a set that's a lot looser and trippier than the first! This time around, the group turn in all their own songs (their debut featured words by Edgar Allen Poe) – and they really turn up the fuzz on the guitar, and mix it nicely ... read moreCD
That dude holding the raven on the cover looks pretty nervous – and for good reason, too – as the Glass Prism here take a lot of chances with their debut album! As you might guess from the title, the words to the tunes here were all penned by Edgar Allen Poe – older poetry from ... read moreCD
Remember the rock break craze? This was probably on your wants list then. Too bad too, cause it's not a bad bit of psychedelic rock, if you can keep from just dropping the needle looking for the clean drum parts. Better than decent songwriting paired up with groovy late 60s production wrapped up ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Roger Glover steps aside from Deep Purple – and delivers one of his strangest records of the 70s – an oddly glammy, hard rock interpretation of material from the children's book of the same name! The set actually scored a surprising hit with the very catchy "Love Is All" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An interesting change from this offbeat spiritual ensemble – a set that's still every bit as cosmic before, but in a way that's maybe more psych-oriented and fuzzy at times – then mixed with some deeper funk elements at other points! Thematically, many of the lyrics could work in their ... (Deep Funk, Rock)read moreCD
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 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Early 70s space rock from Golem – epically paced, trippy, expertly done wigged out instrumental rock that was purportedly laid down by heavies from the soon-to-be legendary krautrock scene working pseudonymously after hours in the studio!

E2 E4 ... LP Racket/MG Art (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)...
Some of the most beautiful sounds ever crafted from Manuel Gottsching – work that's a lot more tuneful and fluid than some of his material with Ash Ra Tempel – and which maybe has more of an 80s vibe overall! That's not to say that Gottsching's gone in for electro pop – just that ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
