✨✧ SmithsQueen Is Dead ... LP
Rough Trade/Sire, 1986. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
A triumphant third album from The Smiths – one that really focuses the energy of their previous sets, and helps them find a new sort of sonic perfection! Those haunting guitars are still in all the right places – as are Morrissey's heartfelt lyrics – but there's also a nice balance here between humor and honesty, which may well make the album the most appealing Smiths set to our ears! Titles include "The Queen Is Dead", "Never Had No One Ever", "Vicar In A Tutu", "Cemetery Gates", "Frankly Mr Shankly", and "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing, with inner sleeve.)

✨✧ SmithsStrangeways, Here We Come ... LP
Rough Trade, 1987. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Part of the great 80s run from The Smiths – and a record that has them continuing to grow, continuing to express new ideas – yet still find a way to hang onto all the charm and catchiness that made them so great in the first place! Morrissey's definitely stretching out a bit with his songwriting, and Johnny Marr's guitar finds lots of lovely places to show us why he was such a standout talent in his generation – and production, as always, is wonderfully uncluttered – none of those too-smooth or too-commercial modes that held back so many Smiths contemporaries once they started raising in fame. Titles include "A Rush & A Push & The Land Is Ours", "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me", "I Won't Share You", "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before", "Death Of A Disco Dancer", and "Girlfriend In A Coma". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SmithsHatful Of Hollow ... LP
Rough Trade (UK), 1984. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential record by The Smiths – even if it wasn't initially conceived as a full length album! The set brings together important early radio material by the group – but sounds that are recorded on a par with their album or single releases – yet often in slightly different variations that have become incredibly memorable over the years. Some material was done for John Peel – but at a level that's way better than most Peel Sessions – and honestly, to our ears, some of these versions are way better – way more urgent – than the versions that showed up on the first two albums. Given that this one was issued right around the same time as Meat Is Murder, it's a crucial part of The Smiths' history – and it's overstuffed with lots of tracks, making it almost even a better deal than the early albums. Titles include "This Charming Man", "How Soon Is Now", "Hand In Glove", "Still Ill", "Girl Afraid", "Accept Yourself", "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want", "Reel Around The Fountain", and more!

HousemartinsLondon 0 Hull 4 ... LP
Go! Discs (UK), 1986. Very Good ... $4.99
A jangle pop masterpiece from The Housemartins – a melodic mid 80s effort that still sounds incredible, and a record that's the very definition of deceptive simplicity in indie pop – with layers and layers of depth underneath the charismatic lead vocals, choruses, chiming guitars & rhythm! There's both spiritual and political resonance in these songs the might have flown right over our heads as kids, but then and now, it still works magically as effervescent pop. To put it simply, this belongs in the 80s indie pantheon with the Smiths and other top shelf groups of the time. Fantastic! Titles include "Happy Hour", "Get Up Off Our Knees", "Flag Day", "Anxious", "Reverends Revenge", "Sitting On A Fence", "Sheep", "Over There", "We're Not Deep", "Lean On Me" and "Freedom".

Last PoetsLast Poets (Douglas pressing) ... LP
Douglas, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ensemble of wordsmiths – comprised of Abiodun Oyewole, Alafia Pudim, and Omar Ben Hassan, plus the percussionist Nilaja – and most cuts feature only spare percussion backing over the spoken protest poetry – delivered with a brutal edge that really sums up the righteous politics of the time. Titles include "Run, N*gger", "On The Subway", "When The Revolution Comes", "Jones Comin' Down", "Black Thighs", "N*ggers Are Scared Of Revolution", and "Wake Up, N*ggers" – all of which should give you a good picture of what's going on with the record!
