Pretty wild work from Yoko Ono – a mixture of straight rock tunes and some very experimental numbers, a few of which sound so much like New York No Wave tunes from a decade later that we have to admit we're pretty darn shocked! In fact, we'd dare say the record's better than anything ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Yoko's stunning Plastic Ono Band LP – utilizing the same incredible group of players from John Lennon's same-titled effort – and an out there masterpiece that could be argued as one of the benchmark noise rock albums of all time!

One of the coolest church rock albums you'll ever hope to hear – and one that's sung completely in German, which maybe obscures the religious nature of the lyrics, and helps you focus on the totally wonderful sound of the instrumentation! The album's from the early 70s, but it's maybe got ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Way before Tony Orlando started tying a ribbon around that old oak tree, he cut some wonderful work for the Epic label – early 60s Brill Building pop at its finest, recorded with a host of top-shelf talents! Arrangements here are by Carole King, Alan Lorber, Garry Sherman, and other New York ... read moreCD

Miragem ... LP Top Tape (Brazil), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
A very cool Brazilian rock group from the early 70s – one who step out here with some touches that almost remind us more of French rock from the time than the usual MPB – and some groovy psychedelic modes as well! Arrangements can be full – a mix of strings interlaced with ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An essential collection of rare material from this legendary Brazilian group – and a set that shows the importance they had in the Tropicalia movement beyond their own famous albums! The package brings together key collaborations between Os Mutanes and other key figures in music at the time ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second set of madness from the legendary Os Mutantes – and like the first, an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer Rogerio Duprat, whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! The album's got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A legendary album! This previously unreleased album by Os Mutantes was supposed to be their breakthrough album to an English speaking market – but for years it's only been talked about in hushed whispers, and has only been heard by a lucky few! The record was recorded in Paris in 1970 ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Wild! This lost Mutantes LP fits in between Mutantes E Seus Cometas and the Mutantes Ao Vivo LP – and like the latter, it's got a very progressive feel! The band has changed membership (Rita Lee's no longer in the group), and it's clear that they've been listening to a lot of Yes – as ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fuzzed-up, freaked-out set from The Other Half – a group known as the initial birthing place of guitarist Randy Holden, whose guitar was later such a strong part of the group Blue Cheer! The style here is definitely in the line of Blue Cheer – but perhaps a bit more innocent, as if ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The vastly-overlooked but totally wonderful work of The Paley Brothers – a pair of siblings with a great ear for a hook, working here in a style that's a bit power pop, a bit old school rock, and mighty tight throughout! Given that their work was issued on late 70s Sire Records, the duo were ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Sweet and mellow work from ex-Beau Brummel Ron Elliott – done in a style that's a bit jazzy, a bit folksy, and with some really nice moments! There's a feel here that steps off the Bradley's Barn album by the Brummels, but it's actually inflected with a hippy honesty that makes for an even ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Panic At The Disco —
Pretty Odd ... LP Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen, 2008. Sealed ...
The seminal Gram Parsons solo debut, and arguably his most consistant post-Burritos album. GP is pretty much the record that put the country in country rock – with a sharp steel guitar cry throughout, an unpretentious proud/poor delivery, and those sweet harmonies with Emmylou Harris. The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked groover by this 60s rock act – recorded in Memphis by Chips Moman, with a hard sock-soul approach that's almost a blue eyed soul take on the sound of Stax! There were probably more than a few famous Memphis session players on the set, and you can certainly imagine who might ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Spine has a small split.)
One of the greatest albums ever from Paul Revere & The Raiders – a set that really had the group stepping forward from their roots as a Northwest party act, into some headier territory of their own! The set was actually recorded the year before the 1967 summer of love – but it ... read moreCD
Great great work by The Paupers – essentially a 60s folk rock combo, but one with a really groovy sound! The group come up with loads of great guitar interplay on the session – janging acoustic and electric together in a style that comes up with some nice hippie and eastern edges ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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

Pearl Jam live at Wrigley Field! Pearl Jam's growth from early 90s angsty, yet classic rock inspired semi-iconoclasts into one of the world's most epic arena rock institutions is pretty darn endearing anyway, but we've rarely heard a more joyful, passionate live Pearl Jam than what's here, culled ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The incredible debut from Pearls Before Swine – a group who were a bit late to the New York folk party of the 60s – but at a level that really helped them evolve past the rest of their scene! The album's sometimes a bit overlooked – as it came out on the mostly-jazz ESP label ... read moreCD

A really weird little record from British singer Carolanne Pegg – a vocalist who's clearly gotten her start in the same folksy generation as Sandy Denny or Madd Prior – but who also is going for a different sort of vibe here! In some ways, Pegg might be the lost link between the Brit ... read moreCD
A sing-songy Japanese group with a sound that's every bit what you'd expect from the 60s style of the cover – a group who've clearly been inspired by groups like We Five, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, and other perfect purveyors of the best sort of sunny sounds – so much so that the ... read moreCD
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one ... read moreCD
Beautifully sweet and folksy work from Linda Perhacs – a singer with a heavenly voice, and a wonderful songwriting talent to match! The record's nicely free from the cliches of some of Linda's contemporaries – as it's got a gently flowing quality that never forces things too much ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Roots rock mastery from Carl Perkins – perhaps the most stylistically trailblazing of the Sun Records rock stable of the mid-to-late 50s/so-called Million Dollar Quartet – and this is perhaps THE greatest beginning-to-end record by any one of those cats during their Sun years! Perkins ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A 60s rock and roll soundtrack, but one that's also a cut above the usual mixed-bag bunch – thanks to a nicely cohesive set of charts from arranger Frank Perkins! About half the tracks here are by Frank – and they're nicely groovy instrumentals that have a jot of jerk and twist rhythms ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreCD
One of the legendary Perry & Kingsley moog records, with all of their early experiments with the instrument, and all of the weird tape cut-ups and production effects, over some versions of cool sixties pop stuff, and a host of original tracks.

Zora ... LP Discom/Disco Not Disco (Serbia), 1984. Near Mint- (reissue)...
A sweet slice of 80s electro soul from Serbia – a set that's the lasting legacy of Boban Petrovic, an artist who was heavily influenced by funky disco sounds from the west – and maybe a bit of fusion as well! The music has a much more soulful vibe than you'd guess from the cover image ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
David Bowie's on the cover, but the music here is from a much wider array of musical sources – in a surprising array of instrumental and vocal tracks that really live up to the madness of the famous film! The key contributor here is John Phillips – who not only gives us some excellent ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An obscure set from the equally obscure Physicians – an Italian group who were better known as the prog act Campo Di Marte, but who here record with a much more jazzy vibe!

Amazing electronic sounds from the 70s – a sweet selection of instrumental experiments from Richard Pinhas – all of which still sounds pretty darn fresh all these many years later! Most of these are spare moogy numbers – often with this cyclical quality that seems to prefigure ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A seminal set from 70s Pink Floyd – a set that took all the energy of Dark Side Of The Moon, and refined it into an even more complex sonic setting! The songs here move out spaciously – still very unified as an overall album, but often with all of these longer-form musical ideas, and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
