Pure greatness from post-Jam Paul Weller – still in a very classic sort of jazzy soul mode here in the early days of Style Council! Titles include "Money Go Round", "Long Hot Summer", "Speak Like A Child", "Headstart For Happiness", and "The Paris ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An incredible swan song from Talk Talk – a group that nobody would have guessed would go in this direction from the early years of their catchy crossover new romantic pop! The sound here is something else entirely – a fully-formed extension of the ideas they'd been exploring on Spirit ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Ten Wheel Drive with Genya Ravan —
Construction 1 ... LP Polydor, Early 70s. Used Gatefold ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mostly a rock album, sure, but Genya Ravan's vocals are backed up by a band that includes Michael Zager on keyboards, plus a lot of other funky players. Zager produced, and the LP includes the nice break cut "Fourteenth Street", plus "Love Me", "Down In The Cold", and ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Groovy genius from German arranger Peter Thomas – a sweet little follow-up to his soundtrack for Chariots Of The Gods! This time around, the setting's a bit more funky – a great mixture of mid 70s grooves with some of the trippier touches you'd know from Peter's previous space scores ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
An amazing little soundtrack from German maestro Peter Thomas – even weirder and more electric than some of his famous 60s recordings! Thomas scored the music for a spooky 70s film about the possibility of aliens on earth – and did so with a bit more tension than some of his other ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
Catchy dawn of the 70s rock that's rooted in hooks and grooves, but taken to the next level with some killer piano and keys, and production touches! The group's best known for the sublime track that kicks this record off, "Something In The Air", which was covered pretty faithfully by the ... (Rock) read moreCD
A big moment of fame for a guy who started out in the freaky band Aphrodite's Child! Great sounds for running on the beach – and side two features the long "Chariots Of Fire" theme! (Soundtracks) LP, Vinyl record album
An incredible document of the genius of the Velvet Underground – recorded by Robert Quine, with great access from the group – and a stunning illustration of the way they really opened up in concert! (Rock) CD
(Out of print. Includes original book and box – all of which in great shape!)
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the ... (Rock) read moreCD
Mindblowing work from Randy Weston – one of two albums he cut in Paris at the end of the 60s with his ultra-hip African Rhythms ensemble – a free-thinking collective of piano, percussion, and some very soulful bass! The sound on the album's a lot freer than some of Weston's other work ... (Jazz) read moreCD
One of Weston's many "comeback" albums – which he seems to make about every 10 years or so – but still a great one! Randy's playing cool electric piano, and he's backed by a tight larger ensemble arranged by Melba Liston. The record retains a lot of the best elements of his ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Gay & Terry Woods —
Backwoods ... CD Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ...
A beautiful album from Gay and Terry Woods – a duo who first rose to fame in Steeleye Span, but who sound especially great hear on their own – in a unique blend of Irish folk and American roots, with a style that's a fair bit different than previous work! Gay's got this haunting vocal ... (Rock) read moreCD
A wonderful early 70s album by the great Link Wray – one that had him exploring the post Byrds/Flying Burritos brand of country-learned rock – and pretty easily bettering the material that those groups were churning out by 1973! Here Link sneaks just a little bit the stomping sound ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Volume one of the legendary compilation of James Brown produced stuff that taught us to love his other work back in the 80's when it was released.

One of the best-ever compilations of James Brown work – and the second slammin' hard compilation of great tracks from the People label.
