Spacey electronic score to this bizarre German orgy film from the late 70s! Klaus is in a sparer mode than some of the mid 70s Tangerine Dream recordings – but the music is quite compelling, and the record only contains three long tracks – "Nowhere Now Here", "Stardancer ...

Weird Love ... LP Big Time/Numero, 1986. New Copy (reissue)...
Aussie punk trailblazers The Scientists near the end of their run in the mid 80s and ready to go out in a fuzz-drenched blaze of glory! The Scientists always sounded like something out of only their own little subsect of the space time continuum, but this really doesn't sound like something out of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great setting for the voice of Jack Scott – not nearly as rockabilly as some of his other material, but still pretty great overall! The tunes are all Hank Williams numbers, as you'd guess – and include "Cold Cold Heart", "Half As Much", "My Heart Would ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a mostly split bottom seam, aging, and a stained corner. Label has a name in pen.)
A bluegrass record with quite an unusual pedigree – one that really sets it apart from the rest! The album was issued briefly in the early 60s, on the mostly soul/blues label Crown Records from the west coast – where the young group would go onto later fame in a variety of different ...

Gun Shy ... LP Elektra, 1986. Near Mint- ...
The Sea And Cake as fresh and breezy as ever! It's almost hard to believe, but Any Day marks the 25th years of The Sea And Cake – intermittently throughout that time span, anyway – and one of the most consistently brilliant runs in indie rock. They've always had an easygoing melodic ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl pressing limited to indie stores. Includes download.)
The Sea & Cake's most instantly addictive album in years – one that blends the more anthemic style of their recent work with some bubbling synthy grooves! The group is nothing if not consistent, and they don't radically rework the set structure – with Sam Prekop's effervescent, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great record with all the known recordings of the Sea-Ders (or Cedars) – a beat combo from mid-to-late 60s Lebanon – and a pretty much perfect mix of period rock & roll hooks and rhythms with Middle Eastern string buzz in place of a Stratocaster! The vocals are in English and the ... read moreCD
Hits ... CD Warner, 1990s/Early 2000s. Used ...
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
An amazing little record that seems completely unto itself – born in that incredible early 70s moment when the UK was overflowing with elements of prog, psych, and hard rock – but served up here by a group who seem to take their own path right from the start! The instrumentation is ... read moreCD
Titles include "Crazy Wisdom", "Bad News Week", "Sweet Forgiveness", and "Warhead". CD
Future ... LP GNP/Crescendo, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ...
A seedy psych Future – as it was foretold by The Seeds, circa '67! The Future kicks off with a dreamy intro – as Sky Saxon waxes on with some spoken word backed by gentle, harp-like strings a little bit of organ before it takes flight – a heady clue that this one's gonna amp up ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with serif font. Cover has ring & edge wear and a center split in the bottom seam.)
Young Vs Old follows a similar trail, with some bigger emotions as well as sparer numbers, with titles including "Who Knows", "Bring The Home", "Ballad Of The Fort Hood Three", "Be Kind To Your Parents", "Get Up And Go", "Mayrowana" and ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
JJust when you think Ty Segall's might've peaked, another record comes out that might be his best ever! He and his band are as free as ever on Freedom's Goblin – probably the most stylistically sprawling thing he's ever put out all at once – in which you know you're in for something far- ... read moreCD
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! The main album is one classic after another, and really stands the test of time, a defiant ... read moreCD

The Shacks really seem to have found their sound here – balancing the sometimes-sweet vocals of Shannon Wise with a grittier edge in the music – not entirely garagey, but also never too overproduced! There's almost an 80s indie vibe going on here in the presentation – a group who ... read moreCD

A surprising late folk entry in the Elektra Records catalog – recorded in the early 70s, and with some sublime production from the great Gary Usher! The sound is definitely contemporary folk, as promised in the title – but there's more of a singer/songwriter sensibility too – ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the earliest albums of 60s girl group soul by the lovely Shirelles! Thankfully, the "trumpets & strings" in the title is a bit of a misnomer – hardly the brass and violin session you might expect, and more of a deeper soul set overall! The girls do a great job of mixing ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, with a split top seam & some staining.)
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 moreLP, Vinyl record album

The album's title is a reference to an address on the north side of Chicago – 953 West Belmont Ave – somewhat gritty at the time the album was recorded, now not too far from a giant Target discount store!

A classic set from this legendary Chicago group of the early 70s – a combo led by Jim Schwall and Corky Siegel – two blue-eyed Windy City musicians who were unabashedly in love with the blues music of their scene! Unlike some of the later crossover blues albums of the 70s, these guys ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Nothing sleepy here, as the Siegel Schwall Band are very much in the lean, bluesy territory that made them such a standout act on the Chicago scene of the 70s! These guys have a real Old Town blend of folk roots and blues inspirations – never trying to force things with either too much ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An enchantingly warm yet mysterious set composed, arranged, conducted and sung by Judee Sill – the second of her 2 rare bits of folk rock gems Asylum in the early 70s – with a richer, country folk sound that's rife with Judee's soaring vocals and eerily spiritual tunes! The tunes meld ... read moreCD
(SHM-CD pressing! In a gatefold cover, like the original album – complete with booklet!)
Incredible sounds from a very underground German group at the start of the 70s – one who were a lot more acoustic than some of their contemporaries, but no less trippy! The album's got song titles that are just dripping with references to LSD, and instrumentation that mixes laidback ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Siloah have gotten a bit more electric since their debut – adding in a fair bit of organ, which really expands the sound – but the overall result is no less trippy, and the overall sense of style is maybe even more open-ended! As before, the songs have this very freewheeling approach ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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 moreCD

A fantastic early chapter in the solo career of Paul Simon – an unusual 60s album made away from Art Garfunkel, and only released in the UK at the time!
