Kid A ... CD Parlophone/EMI (Argentina), 2000. Used ...
One of Radiohead's greatest albums, and probably our favorite – where they boldly dove into stranger, more deeply atmosheric moodcraft than anything they'd released to date! Their follow-up to OK Computer, which was an instant classic for the band, graced with lofty songwriting and impactful ... (Rock) read moreCD
A pair of later albums from the trio of Ray, Goodman, & Brown – still going strong after their early years as The Moments! Take It To The Limit is an obscure mid 80s session from the former members of The Moments – recorded with a style that's a bit more electric and a bit more ... (Soul) read moreCD
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel ... (Soul) read moreCD
Nino Rota —
Roma ... CD EMI (Italy), 1972. Used ...
One of the best Nino Rota scores for Fellini – and one that really recaptures all of the magic of the best early ones from the 60s! The orchestral passages are incredible – with a mix of strange instrumentation (vibes, organ, etc), and wonderfully spare arrangements. The other tracks ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
Great new work from Henri Salvador – the legendary French vocalist who's back on top, and better than ever!

The George Shearing combo gets a rich new sound – the addition of light brass instrumentation to their already-great blend of jazz, Latin, and exotic modes! As with George's smaller sets for Capitol at the time, there's some great use of vibes and guitar on the record – gently grooving ... (Jazz) read moreCD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)
Spare genius from the legendary Labi Siffre – a record without categorization, and one that sits beautifully between soul, folk, and singer-songwriter styles of the early 70s! The record balances perfectly between simple tunes that just feature voice and guitar, and more complicated ones ... (Soul) read moreCD
A really wonderful album from singer/songwriter Labi Siffre – a set that has him exploring a few more righteous themes than before, but still mostly stepping along in that more compressed pop of his earliest albums! The tunes are catchy, compelling, and done in that great blend of acoustic ... (Soul) read moreCD
Wonderful work from one of the most unique singers of the 70s! Labi Siffre is best known to listeners today for his famous funky break cuts – "I Got The" and "The Vulture" – both of which are on this CD, and have been sampled heavily over the past decade – so ... (Soul) read moreCD

BBC Sessions ... CD BBC/EMI (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A criminally neglected group from the UK scene of the 60s – a cool psychedelic trio who recorded at Abbey Road in the same generation as The Beatles and Pink Floyd, but never got the fame they deserved! The tunes are very creative and clever – never overblown, but filled with as much ... (Rock) read moreCD
One of the better late solo efforts from the former Wailer, with him toning down the politics a bit and falling back into a mellow groove. There's some nice backing vocals courtesy the Tamlins, and some nice rhythms courtesy Santa Davis, Gibby Morrison and Sly and Robbie. Includes "Mama ... (Reggae) read moreCD
A great slice of the latter part of Peter Tosh's career, militant hard roots rock as the title suggests. Production is by Tosh with Robbie Shakespeare for the most part, with 11 numbers in all, including "Coming In Hot", "Don't Look Back", "Pick Myself Up", "Cryst ... (Reggae) read moreCD
Some of the most brilliantly baroque work ever recorded by Marcos Valle – an obscure 1970 album that collects together tunes from a few of his odd soundtrack experiments of the late 60s, plus a few others that are in a very similar vein! Marcos is really going over the top here – ... (Brazil) read moreCD
An excellent album from Marcos Valle – and one of his rarest! The album is extremely hard to describe, but it's kind of a baroque extension of his groundbreaking work in the early 70s, with some of the best songwriting of his career, and majestic arrangements that sound great behind his ever- ... (Brazil) read moreCD
Fantastic! This lost late-60s album by Marcos Valle is a real treasure, and it offers a musical bridge between his earlier bossa nova material, and his later, more experimental work! The production is beautifully baroque, with a feel that's similar to some of the early albums by Milton Nascimento ... (Brazil) read moreCD

Gritty and powerful grooves from The Yardbirds – a set that mixes bluesy guitars and psych in a pretty incredible way – all infused by excellent work from the young Jimmy Page, at a level that predicts course he's take with Led Zeppelin just a few years later!
