Atle Lauve ... LP Preservation (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ...
Unreleased grooves from the Norwegian scene of the late 70s – recorded by an artist who's clearly in love with American AOR of the west coast scene! The tracks are all pretty darn tuneful and groovy – and feature lots of riffing guitars, tight drums, and warm keyboards – often ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A Norwegian group from the start of the 80s, but one who are completely enamoured of the AOR sound from the American west coast time – so much so, they turn out a record here that could easily slide in right alongside the classics! Tunes are tight, catchy, and have English language lyrics ... read moreCD
A pair of records from this overlooked harmony group of the 70s! The self-titled Lazarus album has this warm glow right from the start – a mode that seems to draw on the same kind of relaxed energy that was showing up in the work of groups like America or Crosby Stills & Nash – a ... read moreCD
To most folks in the world, this classic LA garage band will always be remembered for their incredible version of "Hey Joe" – done in a rolling Love-esque sweeping guitar version that still sounds incredibly fresh. To Dusty Groove customers, though, this album's always in demand ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most monumental debuts in rock history – a record that hit the world like a led zeppelin, and left an impression for years to come! Led Zeppelin pretty much took over rock right from the beginning – which isn't too surprising, given that Jimmy Page had an in-demand guitar ... read moreCD
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There' ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo pressing, with Porky/Pecko etches, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a hype sticker and light creases in the back panel.)
Led Zeppelin at their most sprawling – in both ambition and in the pacing – on the gargantuan Physical Graffiti! This is the album where they started bringing some odd synth textures to the sound, and it's to Zeppelin's eternal credit that this doesn't compromise their blues-reverent ... read moreCD

(In the die-cut cover, including the heavy inner sleeves & insert.)
Bouncy K-Pop from the 80s – a sweet EP with four different tracks that each have a fairly electronic heart – but which are also touched by the vocals of Jaemin Lee, who looks like quite a swinger on the cover! The sound is a bit like more familiar electronic pop from Japan during the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second album from The Left Banke – that most incredible group who managed to knockout a couple big hits, yet somehow got relegated to "cult" status – and this album is nearly as wonderful as Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina! This one might even be more impressive for the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Incredible work by one of our favorite 60s groups! If you don't know The Left Banke, their unique style of "baroque rock" is a wonderful mix of groovy organ, electric harpsichord, and swirling strings – all set as instrumentation for some of the tightest, grooviest little songs you' ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Barterers & Their Wives".)

Live '89 ... CD Terminal Kaleidoscope/Beta lactam Ring, 1989. Used ...
John Lennon's fabled "Lost Weekend" LP, self produced and another kinda strange mix of weighty material and messy fun composed, produced and recorded in LA while he was estranged from Yoko! Includes some meditations on love and loss, unpretentious horn accented rock & roll tunes and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Apple pressing, in the fold-over cover, missing the bottom panel, including the insert and heavy inner sleeve.)
Yoko shows her Fluxus roots on this album of trippy experimental stuff. Side one is a live piece called "Cambridge 1969", which is performed by John and Yoko, with the help of avant jazzmen John Tchicai and John Stevens. Lots of noisy guitar on that one. Side 2 features a number of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A trio of albums by this very unique group – all brought together in one mighty nice package! First up is the self-titled Lighthouse album – the first record by Lighthouse – a strange band that's always incredibly hard to peg, but who have a sound that we always end up liking a ... read moreCD
The Liminanas are looking hipper than ever on the cover of this album – and sounding hipper than ever too – really opening up that amazing sound that's made them one of our favorite French acts of the past decade or so! All the fuzz of previous records is still in place, but the vocals ... (French, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Seminal work from Liquid Liquid – one of the coolest, funkiest groups on the New York scene at the start of the 80s! The approach here is a blistering blend of different percussion modes – from batucada jamming to funky drums – all tied together with these basslines that really ...

Early work from The Litter – the Minneapolis psych quintet who first broke big on their Emerge album for ABC/Probe – but who are heard here a year earlier, with a sound that's maybe even more trippy and powerful overall! The back of the album carries the message "play at the ... read moreCD
The third album from Little Feat – and one that brings a bit of Crescent City rock and soul into the mix – but it's still Little Feat, so it's got a restless creative energy that's beautifully tough to classify! There's quite a bit of soul influences in the mix – especially the ... read moreCD

Hoy-Hoy! ... LP Warner, 1981. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ...
A later album from Little Feat – and one that adds some new dimensions to their ever-searching vibe! On Time Loves A Hero, Little Feat takes some surprising steps – even for them – into a bit of a fusiony rock vibe some of the time. Still, the soulful boogie rock and stripped ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A landmark album of hard-rocking soul – and a record that broke open both genres for a generations to come! The set's about as classic as you can get for Little Richard – filled with killer numbers that jump around boldly in some heavy New Orleans piano-led grooves – all topped ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD

Flip ... CD Sony/Castle (UK), 1985. Used ...
A long-overdue compilation of timeless material by Look Blue Go Purple – a band that's SUCH a great chapter in the early-to-mid 80s Flying Nun Records story – and a far too little known one, outside of their native New Zealand indie scene of the time! Look Blue Go Purple has the best ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great little TV special from Trini Lopez – served up here with some great help from guests who include The Ventures and Nancy Ames! The album's done in a style that's quite different from some of Trini's studio sides – live, of course, but also with a groove-heavy quality that's a ...

A romping little record from the Jovem Guarda years in Brazil – a time when that country was strongly embracing American rock in all its 60s styles – and turning out groovy little records like this! Prini Lorenz works before a live crowd here – in this mix of mod elements that ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreCD
The biggest collection of work we've ever seen from Los Bravos – a group who broke big around the world with the famous title hit, but who also had a heck of a lot more to offer, too! Los Bravos hail from Spain, but they quickly were picked up and produced by the British arm of Decca – ... read moreCD
