✨✧ UltravoxSystems Of Romance ... LP
Island, 1978. Very Good ... $4.99
A pivotal album in the career of Ultravox – one that has the group shifting from their rougher roots, into the sweeter, more synth-styled sounds that became their lasting legacy on modern music! Gone is the quirkiness of the first few records, but in its place is one of the best (and first) efforts to refine earlier experiments with electronics into a tighter, more pop-styled mode – one that's aided strongly here by the production efforts of Conny Plank, whose work in the electric prog years of the German scene really help give this record a real sense of depth! Titles include "Slow Motion", "I Can't Stay Long", "Someone Else's Clothes", "Blue Light", "Quiet Men", "Dislocation", "Maximum Acceleration", and "Just For A Moment". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

RockwellSomebody's Watching Me ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... About May 16, 2018
One of the strangest acts to come from Motown in the early 80s – and almost more of a new wave record than a soul one! The standout hit here is the title track "Somebody's Watching Me" – an odd electro tune that has Rockwell speaking/singing these paranoid lyrics with a vague British accent – but which has Michael Jackson coming in on the chorus to warm up the tune! Sadly, Michael's gone for the rest of the record – so Rockwell takes center stage with tunes that have a soul-based take on styles heard more familiarly by Human League or Ultravox at the time – and which display the real Anglophile bent in American pop at the time. Still, there's a few nice electro moments – and titles include "Obscene Phone Caller", "Change Your Ways", "Runaway", "Wasting Time", and "Knife". CD

✨✧ VariousTo The Outside Of Everything – A Story Of UK Post-Punk 1977 to 1981 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $42.99
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

✨✧ VariousGary Crowley's Punk & New Wave – Rare Punk Gems & New Wave Nuggets 1977 to 1982 (3CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of rare punk nuggets from the glory days of the UK scene – put together by DJ Gary Crowley, who runs a specialist show on British radio – and served up here in a book-style package that's overflowing with detailed notes, images of the original singles, and other information as well! The collection goes way way past the usual "punk classics" package – partly because Crowley's knowledge of the music and record collection is so enormous – and partly because he's got a nicely expansive view of the generation, one that's open to all the amazing styles that were exploding at the time! Make no mistake, the music here is all punk – no post-punk, Brit pop, or experimental tracks – and the whole thing's a searing 77-track romp, with titles that include "Inside Out" by The Stiffs, "Charles" by The Skids, "Howard Hughes" by The Tights, "Start Again" by The Form, "Everyday Everyday" by Really 3rds, "Wild Dub" by Generation X, "She's Too Clever For Me" by TPI, "You Gotta Know Girl" by Bee Bee Cee, "All About You" by Scars, "When The Tanks Roll Over Poland Again" by Automatics, "Young Savage" by Ultravox, "Getting Nowhere Fast" by Girls At Our Best, "Soldier Soldier" by Spizzenergi, "Go Ahead" by Bobalouis, "Barbarellas" by The Photos, "Kids Just Wanna Dance" by Fast Cars, "This Is Your Life" by Glaxo Babies, "It's The New Thing" by The Fall, "I Hate School" by Suburban Studs, and lots lots more!
