A power-pop classic from early 80s Spain – the debut of Los Secretos, a group with a sound that's very much in keeping with their look on the cover! We might put this one right in the territory of the classic debut by The Knack – as these guys have a similar sort of tightness, and a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Understated genius from the Lost Gonzo Band – one of those 70s bands who could draw on country, but never be country rock – act like they were casual, but had the tightness of much bigger acts – and always come across with the goods, but in a way that never tried to call too much ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Just Sold Out!
A great little group – with music as wonderful as their name!

Out Here ... LP Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
A strange album when put next to Love's Elektra records – and one that's not without its weaknesses – but the band's got a kick-ass drummer, and the record's filled with more than a few tasty moments that have a bit of funk in them. Layered with Arthur Lee's hip guitar, the sound is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sunny harmonies galore – and a wonderful collection by one of the grooviest groups of the 60s!

Daydream ... LP Kama Sutra, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ...
The second LP by one of the greatest sunny singles groups of the late 60s! This was the highest charting LP that the Spoonful had during their career, and it's certainly as strong as much of what the Byrds and others of the ilk were doing at the time, and it's done up right this time with all the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The last Spoonful long player with chief songwriter/arranger John Sebastian – a solid effort in a (thankfully) similar vein to their earlier classic work, but with hints of the sprawling efforts that blanketed late 60s pop. There's still a few big hits in the mix – "Six O'Clock, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A very tripped-out set of meditation music – issued by Verve in the late 60s, and arguably even more spacey and atmospheric than some of Tony Scott's similar records for the label at the time!

Just Sold Out!
Messed-up funky guitar from Harvey Mandel – with lots of freewheeling fuzzed-out tracks, in the manner of his best classic work!
