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 one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at ... (Comedy/Spoken, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover is lightly bent on the bottom 1/3.)
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
(Cover has a cutout notch, light wear, and some seam splitting.)
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

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

Cut ... LP 21, 1982. Near Mint- ...
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
(Limited Run Out Groove pressing on heavy marbled vinyl.)
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

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

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

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
An early Warner Brothers classic from the Grateful Dead – a set that has them stretching out in maybe a more collaborative way than usual – using a few key guests to expand their freewheeling sound! Titles include "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", "Doin ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the finer Dead studio albums of the mid 70s for sure – managing to catch a bit of the spontaneous energy that made them such a vaunted live band on some tunes, really delivering on the wry yet easygoing songcraft they don't really get enough credit for, and even some cool facets of ... read moreCD
The seminal debut of The Grateful Dead – a record that was maybe as important to the American psychedelic scene as the first two albums by Pink Floyd were to the UK! Like those sets, this one almost seems to come out of nowhere – still very much a part of its time, with trippiness and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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
The long strange trip the Grateful Dead began with Warner Bros in the late 60s culminated in this concise, pretty darn solid attempt at an early Best Of, appropriately called Skeletons In The Closet! The Dead would never be best known for their studio recordings, but this really is a good reminder ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Prime mid 70s live Dead from a monumental series of shows at Winterland in late October, 1974! Steal Your Face is something of a benchmark in the official Dead archives, as it not only captures the band during their "farewell" run before going on hiatus, it was also the final album on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The first album issued by the Grateful Dead on their own label – a setting that might make you think they'd act with less control than when at Warner Brothers, but which actually seems to have them doing the reverse! The whole thing's a great back-to-basics effort – sharp songs, rootsy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has some wear and a cut corner.)
An obscure one from Project 3 – with a pop/folk spirit that's somewhere in the same space as Free Design! Enoch Light produced, Dick Hyman handled the arrangements, and titles include "So Far Apart", "When Love", "A New Beginning", "After Cambodia", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

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!

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
