Led ZeppelinCoda ... LP
Swan Song, 1982. Very Good Gatefold ... $13.99
The end of the stairway for Led Zeppelin! A couple of bluesy covers, a strong folk-styled original – and some tried-and-true Zeppelin stormers – on a fairly succinct final album. Early on are a couple of comparatively meditative numbers, and album builds to an exciting, hard-rocking end. Includes "We're Gonna Groove", "Poor Tom", "I Can't Quit You Baby", the Bonham showpiece "Bonzo's Montreaux", "Wearing And Tearing" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has a small peeled spot from sticker removal.)

Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Arguably one of the greatest double-live albums of the classic rock generation – filled with extra long takes of Led Zep classics, most of which diverge very strongly from their studio versions! The real highlight here is the set's classic "Moby Dick", which features one of the greatest drum solos ever set to wax – but other tunes include "Rain Song", "Whole Lotta Love", "Stairway To Heaven", "No Quarter", and "Dazed & Confused". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing in the gatefold cover, including the booklet. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... CD
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Led Zeppelin's final album of the 70s! The band was conscious as ever of modern studio sounds by the this point – and they find a way to deliver their hard blues-inspired heavy rock with some new wave synth and other late 70s touches. It works pretty well, and with songs as great as "Fool In The Rain" and "All My Love" on the record, they really couldn't go wrong. Other titles include "In The Evening", "South Bound Suarez", "Carouselambra", and "I'm Gonna Crawl". CD
(Rear tray card has a fold.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinPresence ... CD
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Led Zeppelin walk back just a bit on their more stylistically sprawling tendencies for this one – and it's a fine set of hard-grooving rock from these uber-legends! We're not sure if they got some of the more ambitious ideas out of their system with Physical Graffiti, or if they just simply wanted to get out there and kick ass this time, but that's indeed what they do. It's still got some longer songs and complicated changes – this is Led Zeppelin, after all – and the lack of over-played classic rock radio fodder actually makes this one a better listen nowadays than the more iconic albums. Includes "Achilles Last Stand", "For Your Life", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Candy Store Rock", "Hots On For Nowhere" and "Tea For One". CD

✨✧ Horace TapscottTapscott Sessions Vol 5 ... LP
Nimbus, 1984. Sealed ... $19.99
One of the darker sessions in the Tapscott solo piano series for Nimbus – recorded a year after the previous volume, and with a tone and sense of power that's even stronger than before! There's an edgey quality to the work that's apparent from the very first note – and throughout the set, Tapscott pushes himself hard – really bringing out a sense of majesty from the tunes. Titles include "Blues In Pirouette", "Perfumes In The Night", "Hy Pocket's Swan Song", and "Stringeurisms". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneSun Ship ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soaring work from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – a session that was incredibly far-reaching for the time, and which originally was unissued until after the time of Coltrane's death! The record's got the group really pushing forward strongly – hitting a Love Supreme mode, but also showing even some of the sharper edges that John would explore with the group after this one – a beautiful swan song to the lineup of McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Things soar with a hell of a lot of spirituality, yet never get too overindulgent to lose their groove – and titles include "Amen", "Dearly Beloved", "Ascent", "Attaining", and "Sun Ship". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has light wear and has a record club sticker on the back.)

Hard to go wrong with the insanity of this one! The record broke the bank of Genesis, but really allowed Peter Gabriel to trip out nicely as his swan song to the band. CD

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (180 gram vinyl – mono edition) ... LP
Columbia, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The tenor sax here makes the album a standout – as John Coltrane still works with Miles Davis on 2 tracks for the record, but Blue Note stalwart Hank Mobley joins in on the rest! The approach is similar to that of the classic Coltrane/Davis years – and in a way, the record's kind of a swan song to that period – one of the last studio session that Miles would cut in such an unabashedly sweet and lyrical way. And while Mobley's always better known for his harder-blown notes at Blue Note, he sounds totally great here next to Davis – really keeping up the gentle spirit and spaciousness of the record, and working with a gentleness that surpasses even his work on the legendary Soul Station album. Rhythm is by the trio of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and titles include Miles' classic version of "Someday My Prince Will Come", plus "Old Folks", "Teo", "Drad-Dog", and "Pfrancing".

✨✧ UnwoundNo Energy (3LP set) ... LP
Numero, 1995/1996. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Numero's great Unwound excavation moves into the mid 90s for No Energy – featuring the underground rock heroes' timeless The Future Of What and Repetition LPs, plus rare singles and live recordings from the period – in a 3LP, 33 song box set! The albums were originally issued in fairly rapid succession, considering modern era release patterns – The Future Of What was released in the the spring of 1995 and Repetition followed barely a year later – and both LPs find the band hanging on to their invigorating post-punk inspired roots, though layering in more ambitious, noisy textures, without compromising the insisting songcraft. It hasn't aged a day! Comes with loads of photographs and a long, engrossing essay by band diarist David Wilcox. Tracks include "New Energy", "Demolished", "Natural Disasters", "Equally Stupid", "Vern's Answer To The Masses", "Disappoint", "Corpse Pose", "Lady Elect", "For Your Entertainment", "Next Exit", "Seen Not Heard", Swan", "Pardon My French", "Message Received", "Here Come The Dogs" and more.

Captain BeefheartIce Cream For Crow (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Virgin/4 Men With Beards, 1982. Very Good+ (reissue)... $11.99
The final recording from the good Captian and his last crew, and one of our favorites in his canon! Sideways rhythms collide with arthritic guitar parts in a remarkable gumbo topped off by Don Van Vliet's unique lyrical vision. A modern classic and a fittingly brilliant swansong to the recorded arts for Van Vliet! Includes "Ice Cream For Crow", "Semi Multi Coloured Caucasian", "Hey Garland, I Dig Your Tweed Coat", "The Past Sure Is Tense", "The Witch Doctor Life" and "81 Poop Hatch". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
A stellar collection of country soul by many of the greatest voices of any strain of soul music – Solomon Burke, Esther Phillips, Al Green, Bettye Swann, Percy Sledge, Little Milton, Candi Stanton and many more! A healthy portion of the material comes from the late 60s and early 70s – recordings that bring a depth of genuine soul to songs written or popularized by artists more often associated with the country charts. That said, it's soul music all the way – showing both the dexterity of these great soul singers and the adaptability of the such great songs. Includes "Detroit City" by Arthur Alexander, "He'll Have To Go" by Solomon Burke, "Take Time To Know Her" by Percy Sledge, "I Saw Me" by Esther Phillips, "Hangin' On" by Ann Peebles, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Al Green, "Behind Closed Doors" by Little Milton, "Set Me Free" by Clarence Carter, "Yours, Love" by Joe Simon, "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye" by Brook Benton and more.

✨✧ Julee CruiseFloating Into The Night (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A haunting debut from singer Julee Cruise – collaborating with filmmaker/songwriter/producer David Lynch and his Twin Peaks soundtrack composer Angelo Badalamenti on one of the coolest vocal records of the period! This album was a bit underappreciated at the time, perhaps because its loose connection to Lynch's Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet was too big of a pop culture hurdle for critical minds to clear, but it absolutely deserves a reassessment. The mix of nostalgic 50s ballroom pop and ethereal modern dream pop is unique to say the least, and Julee's gorgeous vocals carry it over with style to spare. Weird and beautiful – there's really nothing else like it! Titles include "Floating", "Falling", "I Remember", "Mysteries Of Love", "Into The Night", "I Float Alone", "The Swan", "The World Spins" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Perrey-KingsleyIn Sound From Way Out ... LP
Vanguard, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the moogiest records of all time – a legendary LP of "electronic pop music of the future" – sourced and claimed as an influence by everyone from Stereolab to the Beastie Boys! The legendary team of Gershon Kingsley and Jean-Jaques Perry are working here in early tape experiments that chop up quirky analogue electronics – and uses them to produce moogy songbits and space sounds, all with a really groovy beat! There's a simple magic here that has made the album hold up for years, and stand apart from a legion of later imitators with a clear, simple, and effective style that makes the best of all the bleeps and blonks in the set! Titles include "Unidentified Flying Object", "Spooks in Space", "Barnyard In Orbit", "Swan's Splashdown", and "Girl From Venus". A loving musical space party! LP, Vinyl record album
(Vanguard stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ VariousCold Cold Heart – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Southern soul galore – a wonderful range of tracks that are done in that best deep soul mode that borrowed heavily from country music – but also really transformed things to fit their own righteous needs! Make no mistake, the collection is all soul music all the way through – but the songs also echo some of the more heartbreaking themes and local needs you'd find in country music – and also use some isolated elements in the instrumentation and production too! The best way to think of the package is as a collection of southern soul, but one that shows a surprising lack of color barrier when it comes to musical styles – and as always with Ace/Kent, the notes and overall conception of the whole thing is really wonderful. 24 tracks in all – including "Easy Loving" by Bo Kirkland & Ruth Davis, "Big Blue Diamonds" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Hang My Head & Cry" by Arthur Alexander, "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road" by Percy Sledge, "Touch Your Woman" by Margie Joseph, "Who Will The Next Fool Be" by Bobby Bland, "Stand By Your Man" by The Mirettes, "Till I Get It Right" by Bettye Swann, "Another Man's Woman Another Woman's Man" by Laura Lee, and "Jambalaya" by Ralph Soul Jackson.
