Rocking! This is a rare live album recorded by the Mutantes during the years after Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista left the group – and when the only surviving original member Sergio Dias turned the group into a very competent progressive rock outfit!

Animal ... CD Optimus (Portugal), 2011. Used ...
Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s!

A record with a stunning cover by the great Roger Dean – and a stunning sound to match – one of the few sets ever issued by Paladin, a group who are a bit more hard-rocking than the Yes-like cover image might imply – but who also let loose with some great prog touches as well! ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A gritty little gem in the Gram Parsons/Burritos catalog – mostly covers of classic honky tonk tunes! Many of the tracks were recorded for what would have been an honest, earnest, hard country album that was never fully realized – eventually paired with a few other tracks of similar ... read moreCD
A rare early moment from the legendary Austrian group Paternoster – sounds that predate their one and only cult-status album – originally created for the equally legendary film, Die Ersten Tage! The music here was never issued commercially at the time – and the release of these ... read moreCD
A heady heady album from the Austrian scene of the early 70s – and one by a group that's really unlike anyone else we can think of! Paternoster are completely dark and brooding – often building their music at a pace that's a lot slower than prog, as the guitars and keyboards layer in ... read moreCD
A really raw set from 70s Africa – one that's more rock than Afro Funk, but which has a pretty hypnotic groove overall! The group's heavy on guitars, which are often played in a fuzzy, jamming sort of way – but with different tones and phrasing than American or Anglo psyche groups ... (Global Grooves, Rock)read moreCD

Probably one of the most controversial records to be issued on Elektra at the end of the 60s – a rough-edged batch of hippie dippy tracks that shares a fair bit of energy and humor with The Fugs! The tunes here are perhaps a bit more focused than the work of The Fugs, but the group explore ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderfully groovy album by a wonderfully groovy group – one headed up by singer/hornman Ronny Peller, who spent a fair bit of time working in German nightclubs before issuing this debut album with his group!

The complete recordings of The Petards – a legendary German group who are maybe best-known for a few freewheeling albums on Liberty at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – but who also have a not more music here to offer! The set begins before most of the work we've ever heard ... read moreCD

Beautifully groovy work from mid 60s France – all by a singer who's every bit as great as France Gall, Francoise Hardy, or other French greats of the time – but not nearly as well known!

The fantastic debut of the Pink Fairies – easily one of the shaggiest, headiest bands on the UK scene at the start of the 70s – and a group who rose from the ashes of the equally important Deviants! The record's an unusual mishmash of modes – a set that confidently swaggers ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite Floyd albums ever – a lot more subtle than The Wall, but with a focus missing from Wish You Were Here, too! Titles include "Dogs", "Pigs (Three Different Ones)", "Sheep", and "Pigs On The Wing". CD

Rare late 60s psychedelia from blue collar Rockford, Il – a totally great lost album of pop psych tunefulness from Pisces – who had an incredible knack for experimental sounds that weave in and out of the hallucinatory pop structure! The group centered around core players Jim Krein and ... read moreCD
An overlooked gem from early 70s Elektra – a wonderfully warm, wonderfully solid set of rootsy rock from this group headed by Ian Matthews!

An obscure bit of 70s underground rock – the first solo album by Pamela Polland, who might be better known for her work in the psyche-folk group Gentle Soul at the end of the 60s. This album's got a style that's a bit different than work by Gentle Soul – a lot more personal, and at ... read moreCD
