One of the maddest soundtracks you'll ever want – a strange mix of folksy tunes that are filled with creepy pagan energy – recorded for the equally odd film of the same name! The record is impossible to describe accurately, but it's a really dark one – strangely fragile at some ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sweet bit of 60s sunshine, and a record that's every bit as charming as you might guess from the cover – served up by a group who are well into the best harmonies of the time, but also digging for something deeper too!

A great little album from Gary – his one big American hit, and a sublime blend of glam and groove, featuring the massive "Rock & Roll", a track that's still played ad infinitum today at sports events – and which never fails to charge up the scene!

A heck of a great girl group from the 60s – one who never got much play on our side of the Atlantic, but who were one of the most unique UK groups of the time! For one thing, the quartet didn't just sing to studio backings – they also played their own instruments too – which made ... read moreCD
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul ... read moreCD

(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a tiny split in the bottom seam.)
A record that's a bit of an anomaly, given that it was created in the time of Covid – as the Gorillaz work here with a whole host of guest stars – in the kind of musical party that most local authorities would shut down! Yet given the virtual nature of the group – the core of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful electronic classic from Ash Ra Tempel founder Manuel Goettsching – a record that features nothing but his own guitar experiments, filtered through a variety of effects – but at a level that feels a lot more like a keyboard or analogue electronics workout overall! In fact, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
(Lime green label pressing. Cover has surface and edge wear and a few small seam splits.)
One of the crowning early moments from the young Grateful Dead – a key Warner studio album that really has the group moving from psychedelic to more roots-oriented modes – maybe a Marin vibe versus a Haight sort of happening – with loads of great guitar and pedal from Jerry Garcia ... read moreCD
The seminal debut of The Grateful Dead – a record that was maybe as important to the American psychedelic scene as the first two albums by Pink Floyd were to the UK!

An essential early document of the Grateful Dead – a double-length collection of live material that was one of the first to give the rest of the world a chance to hear what they could provide to their ever-growing concert audiences!

Nimrod ... LP Reprise/Rhino, 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)...
Green Day as in command of killer hooks and stomping choruses as ever!

A great little package – all four of the classic albums from Greenslade, packaged here in one monstrously proggy set!

Jerzy Grunwald looks a bit like a Polish Ziggy Stardust on the cover, and there's definitely some glammy touches on the album – but those are also mixed with some warmer touches from the En Face group, who back things up with a few acoustic touches, and sometimes bring some great harmony ... read moreCD
A classic of Canadian rock – and a set that broke big on this side of the border too!
