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
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
Legendary Italian prog combo Goblin – reunited in the studio on the cusp of their 2013 tour – and sounding as vital as ever! This great EP is a slight departure for the Death Waltz label – in that it's a contemporary set, rather than a straight up soundtrack – but the group ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the heaviest soundtracks scored by Goblin during the 70s – with lots of funky club influences, and a funky disco sound on a number of tracks that feature vocals by the great European club diva Asha Pulthi. Pulthi sings on the tracks "The Whip" and "The Sound Of ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Goldbroiler & Ehrlichmann —
Kino ... LP Teldec (Germany), 1986. Very Good ...
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
The first proper album by Americana rock supergroup Golden Smog – featuring members of Wilco, The Jayhawks & Soul Asylum among others – very much living up to the kind of trends-be-damned album that would come from these guys circa 1995 – inspired by the best acoustic-leaning ... 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! The album's a bit of an enigma – a set that's ... read moreCD
Gong's not dead – and in fact, they sound better than ever in this great live set from 1977 – recorded on the Paris scene that was still plenty appreciative of their most trippy touches! The set's got the best aspects of the best Gong studio work – including lots of plenty ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000 – on 140 gram white vinyl!)
The cover's a little bit cheesy, but the record's plenty darn nice – a later psychedelic effort from this Philippine guitarist, done with a lot more edge than you'd expect from the package! While the rest of the world was letting loose on punk rock and disco in 1978, Wally's clearly got his ... read moreCD
Beautiful Persian pop from Faegheh Atashin, aka Googoosh (alternately, Gougoush)– and like some of the best, adventurous pop music from around the world at the the time, it's steeped in myriad styles – from emotionally string-laden to funky and danceable! Googoosh is a genuine ... (Global Grooves, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A very funky bit of blue-eyed soul from Kelly Gordon – a hip LA singer and producer, with a vocal approach that's a bit like Georgie Fame, and with groovy backings to match! This obscure Capitol session features backings arranged by Shorty Rogers, and although Kelly's singing isn't that bad, ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging.)
Demon Days ... LP Parlophone, 2005. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)...
The second Gorillaz album, and if there was ever an inclination the first would be a one-and-done side project or its huge success would be a tough act to follow, this one pretty much slays both theories – it's ultimately one of the better leftfield pop albums of the 00s! The guest roster on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A triumphant return for The Gorillaz – as improbably (impossibly!?) brilliant as ever! Much like the real life post-millennium culture we all inhabit, The Gorillaz exist in a world both virtual and physical – with artist and conceptualist Jamie Hewlett, singer/guiding force Damon Albarn ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A leaner, tighter, but maybe even more appealing effort from The Gorillaz – on their second LP in just over a year's time! This animated alt pop supergroup once again pays heartening respect to some of the greatest living real life human artists who did get invited to the post-millennium pop ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Manuel Gottsching —
E2 E4 ... LP Racket/MG Art (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
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
Gov't Mule feat John Scofield —
Sco Mule ... CD Evil Teen, 1999/2015. Used 2CD ...
Some of the coolest, grooviest work from the French scene of the 60s – recordings by the lovely Chantal Goya – a stunning presence both on record and on screen at the time! Goya's maybe best remembered for her role on Jean-Luc Godard's Masculin/Feminin – where she almost plays a ... (French, Rock)read moreCD
Grateful Dead —
Live Dead ... LP Warner, 1969. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ...
The first album attempt to recreate the live Dead experience! Long jams as only Jerry and crew could play them – with cuts that include "Dark Star", "The Eleven", "Feedback", "Turn On Your Love Light", and "We Bid You Goodnight". LP, Vinyl record album

(White label promo. Cover has a promo sticker and some wear at the spine.)
Here's a rare one! Arranger/producer Dave Matthews was to James Brown what David Axelrod was to Cannonball Adderley – a key funky assistant who came along at just the right moment to help James open up his sound in an even newer direction! Matthews brought up the guitar a bit more in James' ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(New liner notes and featuring never before published photos.)
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some ... (Sound Library, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sweet batch of sometimes droning, sometimes surprisingly melodic psychedelia from Growing Concern – one of the series of rare psych rock efforts release by the adventurous Mainstream label in the late 60s! Growing Concern took a more vocal approach to the sound than many of their ... read moreCD
A rare Brazilian album from the early 80s, but one that's quite different than you might expect – as these guys have a clear love of keyboards that resonate with some of the bigger electro pop acts of the UK and European scene of the time! The group's really just a duo – Billy Jaguar ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A set that's as freaky as you might guess from the cover – played by a German jazz ensemble who aren't afraid to let their hair down! The group's biggish, and the music has a great funky big band vibe – especially in the mode of some of the hippest large groups on the MPS label during ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sweet jazzy pop from Barbara Gryfe – a singer who not only works here on a rare album for the Canadian Broadcasting System, but who also sings a bit in Hebrew too! The production and presentation have a sweet late 60s style – a bit influenced by the Dionne Warwick/Burt Bacharach ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Gryphon look like real Renaissance men on the cover – and they often sound that way, too – given that some of their instrumentation includes older woodwind instruments like the bassoon and crumhorn! Yet as the group grew, they also quickly picked up more electric elements too – ... read moreCD
A beautiful album of keyboard-heavy tracks – issued by a small sound library label in France during the 70s, with a title that translates as "the universe of the sea"!

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 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A strange and ultimately very fun set from Nina Hagen circa '83 – with production by Giorgio Morodor that's clearly geared towards an 80s mainstream club soul sound – and the record turns out to be all the weirder because of it! Nina's vocals are as anti-pop as they come, and Morodor's ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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", " ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful step forward for the team of Hall & Oates – and a set that has them moving more into soul than ever before!
