Pure early genius from Alice Cooper – a set that might not have been as big of a hit as some of his other early 70s albums, but which also shows the singer to be very much at the top of his game! Some of the tracks here follow familiar Cooper territory – sinister, hard-rocking energy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Pre-shock rock psychedelia from Alice Cooper – more of a Detroit-reared answer to early Pink Floyd than it is a clue to the early metal horror show to come – and a record that stands stunningly well on its own! Since most people never even heard Pretties For You until long after Alice ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An amazing legacy in music from Mike Cooper – a British musician who started out in the world of folk blues, but never ended up moving towards some of the rockish modes of his contemporaries – instead finding his very own sort of special space in the freedom allowed by the Dawn Records ... read moreCD
Larry Coryell tries out his vocal chops a bit on this album with his classic group from the early 70s – but the main "voice" on the record is still his wonderfully tight guitar – which has a beautifully sharp sound throughout!

Legal ... CD Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1970. New Copy ...
Essential early material by Gal Costa!

Elvis Costello —
Trust ... LP Columbia, 1981. Very Good ...
Essential old school Elvis Costello from the peak years of the Attractions era! Trust is one of the earliest albums in which Costello started to shake the punkish roots off just a bit, adding a bit more of his sock soul influences into his patented power pop. Tracks include "Clubland", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

CPR ... CD Samson, 1998. Used ...
One of the coolest cuts ever from The Creation – a mod riffing romper that will demand play after play, once you finish the very first spin!

Unreleased live material from the mighty Marshall Crenshaw – recorded right during the same time as his amazing run of records in the early 80s!

Classic tracks from the Cure – a set that starts with some of their earliest gems, then runs through the 80s stretch when the group were a surprisingly appealing dancefloor act too! Titles include "Boys Don't Cry", "A Forest", "Let's Go To Bed", "The ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Not a soundtrack album from Holger Czukay – despite what you might guess from the title – and instead a batch of nicely tuneful, often-catchy tracks that somewhat follow the style of late 70s work from Can!

Holger Czukay works here with many of his frequent musical partners – including Jah Wobble, Jaki Liebeziet, and Michael Karoli – but the album actually feels a bit more like his then-recent collaborations with David Sylvian – more concerned with subtle shifts in sound and space ... read moreCD
Holger Czukay works here completely live – either in the Can studio on side one, or live in concert on side two – but always with the sonic complexity that we love on some of his more production-heavy projects! There's maybe more of a sense of songform here throughout – lyrics ... read moreCD
Holger Czukay is a long way from his roots in Can on this great mid 80s album – even though he's still got help on the record from Jaki Lebezeit and Michael Karoli from that famous group!

The original soundtrack to an odd little 50s rock film – with Sal Mineo in the band on drums – and songs written by Henry Mancini, Rod McKuen, and Bobby Troup! McKuen sings on one number – and Alan Copeland sings on another. LP, Vinyl record album
An amazing reissue of this now-legendary album – once a lost psych oddity, but a set that's gone onto make plenty of waves over the years! Song Of A Gypsy may well be one of the best self-issued psych sets from the American underground – a really well-written, well-recorded record that ... read moreCD
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, ...

Lost late material from the great Bobby Darin – more than two albums' worth of songs, all of which appear here for the first time ever!

A beautiful turn in style for Johnny Darrell – a singer who maybe hit kind of a pop/country mode in the 60s – but who here comes across with a nicely deep vibe! The cover image has kind of a lonely feel, and that spirit is definitely in he music too – as Darrell matures into a ... read moreCD
A full collection of Atlantic Records material by Jesse Ed Davis – a real music industry insider whose guitar work graced countless albums by superstars during the late 60s and early 70s, but whose work on his own is sometimes overlooked!

A sweet little number with a sunny California vibe – equal parts rock and soul, with a guitar line that fades in to echo the waves of the surf – while Rudy De Anda delivers a vocal over romping drums!

Deep Purple may be asking a lot to knock the faces of the presidents off Mount Rushmore, and put up their own images instead – but given the force of this classic early 70s set, they may well have the musical power on their own to carve up a whole mountainside!

(Green label pressing with Artisan etch. Cover has a bent corner.)
The birth of a legend, and easily one of the heaviest records to hit the mainstream in the late 60s!
