Fuzzed out late 60s LA rock from the Rockets – a mix of loose and lumbering guitar rock with some heavily buzzing chords which no doubt seemed like something worth exploring to Neil Young – who recruited most of the band into what would become Crazy Horse! The elements of Crazy Horse ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The continuing evolution of the great Jess Roden – an lesser-known 70s talent who emerged from the jazz rock scene in the UK at the end of the 60s – but who's working here in a much more sophisticated mode! Jess always had a lot of soul in his style right from the start – that ... read moreCD

A beautiful project from pianist Tom Rogerson – a record that features his work on the acoustic keys in a sonic setting provided by Brian Eno – a beautiful blend of organic elements that almost feels like some of the best of Eno's Ambient projects from the late 70s, or the more minimal ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest albums ever from The Rolling Stones – a set that still draws on all the bluesy roots of their best 60s material, yet which also shows a sharper, nastier edge as well! The album shows the tremendous sense of focus and power the Stones had in this crucial late 60s stretch ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The Rolling Stones at their rawest, most shambling, sleazy and brilliant – the epic, unimpeachable Exile On Main Street! What can we say about one of the most iconic LPs of all time other than chime in with our agreement that it's one of the greatest rock albums ever! Big choruses come and ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

(Blue label stereo pressing with Bell Sound stamp. Cover has a name in pen and some splitting on the spine & bottom seam.)
A landmark live set from the Rolling Stones – featuring material from their smoking tour of 1969! The set really captures the Stones at their most nasty – that great turning point when their edge was maybe sharpest of ever, right in the best Let It Bleed mode – but with even more ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label stereo pressing. Cover has some edge wear.)
Hard to go wrong with a Stones classic like this one – a record that really has the group hitting their late 60s stride, and coming across with a depth and power that really goes beyond their earlier releases! There's a sinister quality to the record right from the start – thanks to ... read moreCD
Way more than the disco cash-in some folks thought at the time – and a surprisingly classic set that perfectly sums up the late 70s Stones ethos – and, in a way, the vibe of a changing New York! Titles include "Miss You", "Beast Of Burden", "Shattered", ... read moreCD
(Out of print LP sleeve replica edition with die-cut faces – includes original protective case.)
A record that was initially thought by some as a cheap cash-in on the Sgt Peppers concept – but an album that, to us, really helped set The Rolling Stones free to express themselves in so many new and amazing ways! There's definitely a bit of the hippie vibe to the set at times – such ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing in the 3-D cover, including the inner sleeve. Cover has a split top seam.)
A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s. Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Mick Ronson gets his mighty due – in this sweet soundtrack that not only features some of his key moments with David Bowie, but also includes some great solo tracks – as well as performances with other artists too! Don't think of this as a film-based collection, and imagine it more as ... read moreCD
Beautifully somber work from Biff Rose – material that's quite a bit different than his more freewheeling records on Tetragrammatron, and a lot more serious than his later joke-filled live album on Buddah! This set's got a personal, dark sort of sound that's somewhere in the territory of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Passionate, artful warmth and beauty from the late finger-style guitar great Jack Rose, who left us at far too early an age – a wonderful record that should have been only his first for the Thrill Jockey label! Rose works with and transcends prewar folk & blues traditions from Appalachia ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Great later Roxy – mellow, but warmly wonderful – and kind of a combination of the Bryan Ferry solo mode with the group's other styles. Titles include "Same Old Scene", "Flesh & Blood", "My Only Love", "Oh Yeah", "No Strange Delight" ... read moreCD
A mindblowing debut from Roxy Music – a record that took the world by storm in the 70s, and which is still pretty darn revolutionary all these many years later! Sure, the cover looks a bit cheesy and trashy, but the core of the music is amazing – this blistering array of guitars, ... read moreCD
Roxy Music —
Siren ... LP Atco/EG, 1975. Very Good+ ...
Quite possibly the biggest early moment of US fame for Roxy Music – thanks to the classic "Love Is The Drug", which kicks off the album and is easily one of the group's best-known tunes of the 70s! The album tightens things up slightly from the sound of Country Life before – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A killer EP from Royal Trux – released after the classic Accelerator album – with an altogether different, yet equally great vibe! Includes 2 shorter cuts with a longer middle piece and to the Trux eternal credit, it's a unique little gem and a completely vital piece of their catalog. ... read more12-inch, Vinyl record
The first three albums of Japanese noise legends Ruins, all presented in a single set – sounds that are as powerful and mindblowing as when they were first unleashed to the world back in the 80s! The style here is still completely revolutionary – even though so many others have tried ... read moreCD
The glammy garage punk classic! Evil genius Kim Fowley + hard-rockin' underage girls + 1976 = one of the most immediately catchy, damn near illicit razor-edged trash rock albums ever! Although it was a joke to the rock literati of the time (and may still be. . .stupid snobs) this album was ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing with Masterdisk stamp. Cover has a cut corner.)
Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of the first really tripped-out albums from Todd Rundgren – a record that makes us think he must have been getting a lot into his head since the time in the studio for Something/Anything! While not a concept album, the record does have a clearly stated "quest for knowledge and quest ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Leon Russell at the height of his powers – really firmly on his own in the lead, after so many years in the background – and working with a confidence that makes the whole thing completely charming right from the get-go! Like a rare few – a short list that might include Mose ... read moreCD
The Rutles had a very short initial life – the subject of a tremendous mockumentary – put together in the 70s by Eric Idle of Monty Python and Neil Innes of Bonzo Dog Band! And yet over the years, the group's take on the sound of The Beatles has become something of a legend – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Terje Rypdal —
Bleak House ... LP Polydor/Round 2 (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)...
The first album from European guitarist Terje Rypdal – quite different than most of his other work! The set's got Terje playing that wonderful guitar of his – edgey and chromatic, but not nearly as spare and moody as on later ECM sides – and often set against larger ...

The second great album from the duo of Roger Salloom and Robin Sinclair – issued by Chess Records like the first one, but much more of the kind of album you'd expect to hear coming from the south – on labels like Capricorn, Ardent, or Enterprise! Like some of the best on those, the ... read moreCD
Samurai ... LP Greenwich Gramophone Company (UK), 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
A propulsive set of post psyche/early prog – the lone LP from the Dave Lawson's post Web group Samurai! The songs are solid, and the set has something of a jazzy rock feel, thanks to instrumentation that includes sax, flutes, clarinet and vibes on top of rock backdrop. Originally released ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sweet folksy pop from the glory days of A&M! Evie Sands has a voice that's emotive in a folk rock way, but which is here produced with smoother west coast arrangements that are more in an LA mode – which makes for a very cool mix of modes! The overall sound of the album is very hip ... read moreCD
Pretty hip stuff, with a definite Coltrane influence – and Larry Young in the group on organ, along with Billy Cobham on drums and Armando Peraza on congas.

Abraxas ... LP Columbia, 1970. Used Gatefold ...
Just Sold Out!
In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action! Features a stellar cover of "Oye Como Va", plus "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Lotus ... LP Columbia, 1975. Very Good 3LP Gatefold ...
A great live Santana set, recorded in Japan in '73 and never released on vinyl in the US!

(UK pressing in the fold-out cover, including the printed inner sleeves and inserts.)
A crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most searing, soaring albums ever from Santana – a set that takes all the power of the previous two records, and packs it into one tight little set!

A bit jazzier than usual – thanks to work from Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Wayne Shorter on saxes, Ron Carter on bass, and both Tony Williams and Harvey Mason on drums! Titles include "Love Theme From Spartacus", "Golden Hours", "Gardenia", "La Llave" ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Hiroshi Sato —
Orient ... LP Kitty/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)...
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
