A monster couple tracks by The Bob Seger System – from long before Bob become a road weary superstar, working in the late 60s with a pummeling mix of garage rock and real love for gritty Detroit soul!

A really great record – one our all-time favorites from our early years of crate-digging! Shades of Joy were one of those cool little sixties bands that fell through the cracks – a San Francisco based, racially-mixed jazz group that had rock leanings, but did some neat groovy stuff. ...

Rocky Sharpe & The Replays —
Let's Go ... LP Chiswick (UK), 1981. Near Mint- ...
A lost relic from the Ohio scene of the late 70s – important work from the late Jim Shepard, and a record that's every bit as creative and compelling as some of the bigger names to come out of Cleveland or Akron! 7-inch, Vinyl record
The long-lost first album from Shoes – recorded at home, and even rawer than any later releases – appearing here on vinyl for the very first time! The group are already pretty amazing at this early point – right on the money, and almost with more of a punkish vibe at points ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Breakout sounds from Shoes – and an album that may well stand as the group's lasting treasure!

Siegel Schwall Band —
Shake ... CD Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ...
The Siegel Schwall Band are still kicking it hard here – playing with a surprisingly gritty vibe, maybe thanks in part to production from the great Sam Charters – who'd handled so many great blues sessions over the years! But we're guessing that at this point, the group didn't even ... read moreCD
The debut album from a group who became a seminal bridge on the Chicago scene in the 60s – a blue-eyed blues quartet who got their start on the south side, then helped bring the music up north! The group have an edge here that's sharper than you might expect – maybe in part because the ... read moreCD
The Siegel Schwall Band change things up a bit here – leaving behind the rootsy Sam Charters production of their first few albums for the the heady sound of Dunwich – and picking up just a bit of electric piano and electric bass in the process! The style is still rooted in blues, but ... read moreCD
Both of the rare original albums by this legendary 60s electronic group – out now on one lovely 18 track CD!

One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is!

We've gotta admit, this record sounds a lot better with the passing of time than we might have expected – thanks in part to some totally sweet Fender Rhodes, used often, and in all the best ways to pepper the tunes!

A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Guy Skornik —
Tusk ... LP Finders Keepers (UK), 1979. New Copy ...
Really beautiful electronics from the enigmatic Guy Skornik – an artist that we mostly know for his quirky concept record Pour Pauwels, but who sounds here like some of the best electronicians of the German scene of the 70s! All tracks are long and spun out – electronic, but with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pre-The Knack work from a young Doug Fieger, who already seems to have a great ear for a hook – although in a way that's different than that later group's work!

Soaring space rock from Sloche – a group who work here in a heady blend of keyboards and vocals, stretched out on long tracks that never lose their energy at all! The approach is relatively unique – as the group has two keyboardists, Rejean Yacola and Martin Murray – who play a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 500!)
Stadacone ... LP RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1976. New Copy ...
Sloche only ever recorded two albums, and both of them are gems – the kind of overlooked Canadian 70s prog treasures that were lurking in the shadows right behind Rush!

One of the best Brit psychedelic rock albums of the late 60s – one that sounds incredible to this day!
