Neil Young in at his most intimate and affable, solo at the Bottom Line in 1974! It's a surprising venue given his mid 70s stature, but a wonderful setting to debut some great songs for the first time – some rarely performed live in the years to come – and the stories behind them, too. ... read moreCD

You might not guess it by the records that tend to grace our pages, but we do love some Neil Young around the Dusty offices. And while we'd like to say it doesn't get much better than this prime mid 70s LP, the old man's delivered so many great recordings over the years that would be a mighty ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing with printing inside jacket. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light aging and lightly bent corners.)
A solo set from Neil Young , circa '71, at a time when he was really soaring as a solo performer – there's perhaps no better time in his storied career to pour his songs over large, excited audiences in a way that sounds as big and beautiful as with his storied bands over the years. Young is ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Young Gun Silver Fox sound better here than ever before – really hitting that well-crafted approach to 70s AOR that they do so well – so much so, we had to do a double-take and make sure this wasn't some album on ABC or Epic from back in the day!

(Indie exclusive limited edition red vinyl pressing – with download!)
A record with a bit of a joke on the cover, but one that's also got a much more mature version of The Youngbloods than just a few years before – a group who are moving past straighter folk, bringing in bits of psych and jazz elements – yet still also keeping their cool a lot more than ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing with Artisan etch, in fantastic shape!)
A classic album by one of the coolest cats to ever record a Halloween record – Philly TV figure John Zacherley, whose recorded career consists almost entirely of horror parody material! Zach's got a strong ability to emulate the kind of creepy figures in older horror films of the 30s and 40s ... (Halloween, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Zager & Evans step into some headier territory than before – almost a space inspired by their previous 2525 hit, used here to push their other music into the realm of cooler sounds!

(Sealed copy! Cover has a cut corner and vintage store sticker.)
One of the most jamming Zappa albums from the early days – a set that's still got some of Frank's complicated musical leanings in play – but which features interpretation by a smoking group who no doubt helped the great one reach a much larger audience! George Duke plays lots of organ ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label stereo pressing with Warner text. Cover has some surface and edge wear.)
Wonderful stuff from Frank Zappa – a set that still has all the freak-out feel of the early years, yet which also shows a real maturation in his arrangement styles as well!

An early masterpiece from Frank Zappa – one of those records that looks like it's going to be a big ol' mess when you first see the cover – but which turns out to be a carefully calculated act of madness in the end! The Mothers have all their freeform freaky brilliance intact here ... read moreCD
(Out of print and in the original green tinted Ryko case.)
One of Frank Zappa's biggest-selling albums of the early 70s and it's also one of his best ever!

(Cover has light wear and some waviness from moisture along the bottom three inches.)
Frank Zappa & The Mothers, live at the Fillmore East – showing the world they've got plenty of greatness to offer away from the studio!

(Blue label Bizarre pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a partial top split, light surface wear, tiny stain spot.)
A set recorded late in the year of 1971, and one that features the final lineup of the group with Flo & Eddie – presented here in an expanded 3LP set with a huge amount of material!

Really freewheeling sounds from this heavy power trio – a group with the structure of a jazz organ trio, but the ferocity of a group that dips heavily into hard rock too!
