One of our all-time favorites – with the classic part 2 of the "Cynus X1" saga – the mighty "Trees", and the post-rock jam "La Villa Strangiato". Also includes the parable of "The Trees" – and the more down-to-earth "Circumstances" ... read moreCD
One of the best-remembered albums from the great Tom Rush – a set that gave the world his well-recorded title track (and the classic "No Regrets"), and which also has Tom really reaching out with a proud new style! The record expands the core sound of Rush in ways that roughly echo ... (Folk/Country, Rock)read moreCD
A great discovery in the lost catalog of Arthur Russell – material from the same mid 80s stretch as his excellent World Of Echo album, and done with a very similar sound! Most of the instrumentation here is spare drum programs, keyboards, and processed cello – all handled by Russell, ... read moreCD
Two great slices of blue-eyed soul – both produced by Leroy Glover, and done in a way that really points towards some bigger southern crossover material in the 70s! Kenny does a fantastic job with the hit – and the flipside is pretty nice too. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo pressing, with a small sticker on one label.)
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
(Includes the booklet – which is wavy from moisture. Cover has light wear and waviness.)
An incredible debut from British singer Bridget St John – a set with the same spare, chilling quality as Nico's first album on Verve! Like Nico, Bridget is amazingly without categorization – a folksinger initially, but one who's working here with a darkly personal quality that goes far ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Truly amazing work from Bridget St John – an artist who's unlike anyone else we can think of – and who belongs in that rare stratosphere of completely distinct talents at the end of the 60s – a space that might include Nico, Nick Drake, or Bill Fay! Like all those three, St John ... read moreCD

Ryuichi Sakamoto —
Esperanto ... LP Midi/Sony (Japan), 1985. New Copy (reissue)...
A masterpiece of electronic work from Ryuichi Sakamoto – and a record that may well be reaching for the universal language promised in the title! The set's not nearly as pop-oriented as some of Sakamoto's other work from the time – mostly instrumental, and with a spirit that's like ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Ryuichi Sakamoto —
Great Tracks ... LP Midi/Sony (Japan), Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)...
A really well-titled set of work from Ryuichi Sakamoto – as the set features four gems from his key 80s years, all mastered by Bernie Grundman for extra-high fidelity in this limited set! Sakamoto's creative genius was at a real high point during this period – all the experimental ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
San Ul Lim —
3 ... CD World Psychedelia (Korea), Mid 70s. New Copy ...
Super fuzzed out, trippy 70s psych rock from Korea's San Ul Lim – an album recorded by the Seoul rockers in the power trio format of guitar, bass and drums – but with such a fuzzy, dense tone that it's hard to fathom how on Earth they got the sound! The opening track starts in ... read moreCD
The co-founder of the mighty Fugs takes us down the piney road to post hippy hillbilly freakhood – a fairly searing lampooning of redneck rock & country music! Sanders reached a lot of points in the rock idiom long before many others, and this satiracle groove is another one – with ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, with call letters in marker on the labels. Cover has surface wear, call lettters in marker, and split seams held with old tape.)
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. Titles include "Naima", "A Love Supreme", "Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord", "Meditation", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A 28 track career retrospective, including: "Let There Be Light", "Brotherhood", "Spirit", "Right Now", "Life Is For Living", "Saja/Right On", "Somewhere In Haven", "I Believe It's Time", "Serpents & ... read moreCD
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! There's plenty of Latin influences going on – mixed with heavy fuzz from Carlos, and lots of jazz and funky touches too – ... read moreCD
Satisfaction ... LP Decca/Alternative Fox (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
The only album ever recorded by Satisfaction – a wonderful British group from the key jazz rock years of the scene, but one who have a sound that's maybe more personal and intimate than the rest! These guys are never too proggy, and are only just a sextet – one that's fronted by some ... 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
(Cover has a slice down part of the spine which has caused some splitting and flaking.)
Savoy Brown —
Raw Sienna ... LP Parrot/London, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ...
A fantastic classic from Savoy Brown – one of those records that shows just why these guys were so great during their short early run! The approach is maybe familiar blues rock, but the sound is also very special – with a great sense of fusion of all the elements, so that vocals, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A special split LP from Savoy Brown – one side live, and one side studio – both produced to blues rock perfection by Mike Vernon! The live set features one 22 minute long medley, titled "Savoy Brown Boogie" – and studio tracks include "Made Up My Mind", "I ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Soaring sounds from SBB – an all-instrumental session for Polish Radio, and one that really shows off the more fusion-heavy side of their music! All tracks are nice and long – and there's more of a power trio formation in the group – really freewheeling guitar lines that are ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound! The Scaggs here is a really loose and soulful one – as Boz steps out of the freewheeling late 60s Bay Area scene with a really wonderful take on blue-eyed soul – an ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)
One of Boz Scaggs most soulful albums thanks to production from Johnny Bristol, and arrangements from HB Barnum! Titles include "Slow Dancer", "I Got Your Number", "Hercules", "Take It For Granted", and "Pain Of Love". (Soul, Rock)CD

Conrad Schnitzler —
Con ... CD Paragon/Bureau B (Germany), 1978. New Copy ...
Beautiful early solo work from Conrad Schnitzler – a set that's kind of a distillation of the ideas he brought to Tangerine Dream at the start, but distilled down into much more personal territory, with a very different vibe than the sound of that group at the time! The music is every bit as ... read moreCD

Klaus Schulze —
Next Of Kin ... LP Roundtable (Australia), 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
An obscure Klaus Schulze soundtrack, done for an Australian horror film from the early 80s – all in modes that are a nice condensation of Klaus' longer-form work from the 70s! The tunes here are still heavy on the kind of keyboards that Schulze helped pioneer in Tangerine Dream and his own ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
