One of those surprisingly great albums from the second chapter in the career of banjo legend Earl Scruggs – material recorded with sons Randy, Steve, and Gary – who bring a bit of rock elements into the music, but still give Earl plenty of room to solo too! Gary sings on a few cuts, ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreCD

A rootsy rock classic from Seatrain – a group who maybe aren't as well-remembered these days as they should be – but who set off a lot of fires with this set! The group work in territory that's close to The Band or Little Feat – and in fact they cover a song by the latter at once ... read moreCD
Maybe one of the most classic albums from Seatrain – and a set that definitely shows their huge progression from roots in The Blues Project, to their transformation into more of a roots rock band on the Marin County scene! In a way, the record's almost a west coast take on territory The Band ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A lost bit of prog from the UK scene of the 70s – an obscure record that appeared right before the birth of punk, but which carries plenty more echoes of the generation before – especially in the way the hard-jamming guitars can really take off on a riff and fly into a frenzy! The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Searing sounds from The Seeds – not just the group's well-known material on GNP, but lots of obscure non-LP tracks, b-sides, and even some late gems recorded for MGM! The sneering, gritty quality of the group really comes through on these tracks – tight numbers that pack a heavy punch ... read moreCD
A fantastic second album from Chicago's Sen Morimoto – and, like the first, a set that really moves beyond simple definition!

A pretty obscure late 60s set on Capitol Records – by one of those great bands who briefly got the chance to record for the label, then never showed up again!

(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole in one corner, and a mark from a sticker in the same corner.)
The second album from Canadian hard rock legends Sex – a power trio at the core, but expanded here with some great flute and sax, the latter of which is played in both acoustic and electric modes! The sound isn't quite prog, but the songs are longer than before, and the jazzy reed work ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The soundtrack to the Sex Pistols quote/unquote documentary The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle – a crazy mess of Pistols odds, ends and quote/unquote hits – including Sid's crazy-as-hell take on Sinatra, the weird quote/unquote French version of "Anarchy In The UK" and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Snide, surly and cathartic genius from the Sex Pistols – a record with a legacy as eternal as any rock album, punk or otherwise – all the more stunning, given it's the band's lone studio album! One classic after another, including "Holidays In The Sun", "Bodies", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(US beige label pressing in the pink cover without "Submission" sticker. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has moderate wear and stains due to moisture.)
The Shadows on their own, without Cliff Richard – but that's OK with us, as it means that we get to hear plenty of great guitar work from Hank Marvin, and drums and pepiano from Brian Bennett! LP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Philosophy Of The World album by The Shaggs – the enigmatic trio of Dot, Betty, and Helen Wiggin – three sisters all recorded by their father, who had the foresight to capture their simple but undeniable musical brilliance!

Tripped-out pop by the great Sandie Shaw – a real departure from her other work of the 60s, and an album that's overflowing with wonderful late 60s tunes, grooves, and production!

Breakout sounds from Shoes – and an album that may well stand as the group's lasting treasure!

Three classic albums from Shoes, plus bonus tracks, and a full CD worth of rare material too!

Live material from Chicago's Siegel Schwall Band – recorded in small clubs in the Midwest, very much the sort of venues from which they sprang! There's as much of a no-nonsense vibe going on here as on their studio albums, and maybe even a bit more grit overall – especially on the ... read moreCD
An insanely wonderful collection of work from the great Labi Siffre – a UK singer/songwriter who's unlike anyone else we can think of! Labi's definitely a soul singer at the core – and his work has been sampled by DJs and producers over the years – but he's also got a much deeper ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD

A really cool lost group on late 60s ABC – a bit psych, a bit bluesy, and forging both into a great hard rock sound at times! The set's got some larger arrangements by producer Bill Szymczyk – a name we don't know, but who also gives the record a superb sound overall! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the big Johnny Cash recording of "Boy Named Sue" – and it features Shel singing that famous tune, plus a host of ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreCD
One of the cooler groups from the jovem guarda years of 60s Brazil – a combo who sometimes echo rock modes of the Anglo world, but who can also bring in some strong currents from samba too! The mix is great, and completely infectious on the best cuts – as the blue guitars and echoey ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Produced by Richard Perry – with titles that include "Look Me In The Eyes", "Altitude Dancing", "Sons Of Summer", "Waterfall", "Are You Ticklish", "Love Out In The Street", and "After The Storm". LP, Vinyl record album

(70s pressing. Cover has ring and edge wear, minor seam splits and a name in marker on both sides.)
A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times!

Their tunes emerge in ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic collection of work from the legendary Posh Boy label – a short-lived, but crucial imprint on the LA punk scene at the start of the 80s – and a company that was always a lot more hardcore than SST! Posh Boy really had a knack for capturing the short, sharp tunes that marked ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Maybe the grooviest collection of work we've ever seen from the lovely Nancy Sinatra – a set that features some of her hits, but also includes a lot more material that's much more obscure – and which shows that Nancy was a hell of a song stylist, far from the charts! The core of the ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Early work from the great Doug Sahm – with titles that include "She's About A Mover", "Beginning Of The End", "The Tracker", "You're Out Walking The Streets Tonight", "It Was In The Pines", and "Please Just Say So". CD
One of the very best rock albums of the late 60s from overlooked genius Doug Sahm and his Sir Douglas Quartet – a brilliant hybrid of the laconic country and rural rock ragged glory that was piping through so many under appreciated groups at the time (and went on to be bastardized by crap ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Forget any sort of royalist idea you might have about the "sir" in these guys' name – as the group's from Brooklyn, and they're a searing hard rock group from the start of the 70s – one who did some heavy work touring with Black Sabbath at the start of the 70s, then cut this ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A tremendously great album on Stax – even if it's by a non-Memphis group, and one of the few rock albums issued by the label!

Still one of THE standout records of the post-punk years – the simple but effective dub statement of three London ladies with decidedly left wing politics!

A great collection of work by one of the most unique voices in early 70s British pop – the enigmatic Norman "Hurricane" Smith, a strange singer whose work fits into a spectrum that lies somewhere between Georgie Fame, Gilbert O'Sullivan, and Ray Davies!
