XA mix of classic styles -- psych, garage, prog, rockabilly, punk, post-punk, singer/songwriter, and even classic rock!


Slash/Fat Possum, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A mindblowing album – and one that we'd never part with, ever! X may have sprung from the LA punk scene of the late 70s – but this second album from the group is one that pushes way past every one of their contemporaries – a set that's always urgent, never dated – and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ink/Modern Classics, 1986. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A timeless record from the moment it was released – a set that got some important attention in the 80s, but has gone onto influence countless others over the course of subsequent decades! Charles Hayward and Camberwell Now work here in a style that's a bit beyond definition – maybe an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mark Morriss

Taste Of Mark Morriss
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. New Copy
Solo work from Mark Morriss – formerly a member of The Bluetones, but maybe even more striking here as an artist on his own! The album features a compelling mix of covers – songs originally recorded by Jess Conrad, Scott Walker, OMD, Buffalo Springfield, Jesus & Mary Chain, Weezer, ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3LP
Music beyond description – a unique blend of disco, funk, avant garde, and dub – the wonderful world of the late Arthur Russell! Russell was a bass player by trade, but he was schooled in both classical and Eastern music forms – and brought an incredibly fresh vision to his work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Popera Cosmic

Les Esclaves
Columbia/Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
The group name's got "opera" in the middle, but the set is way more than that – and way more than the usual "rock opera" modes in which the rare album is frequently cited! Instead, the whole thing's a freewheeling bit of French psych – very much tied to the trippier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dug Dug's

Los Dug Dug's
RCA/Lion, 1971. New Copy
Psychedelia from early 70s Tijuana – the excellent Los Dug Dug's set from Dug Dug's – with English lyrics this time (the group had earlier made a go of it in NYC and didn't bust out as they'd hoped) and a great mix of spacious, echoey psychedelia and songs as great as post psych ... CD
Lion, 1971. New Copy
Hard grooving, heavily grooving South American rock from Miguel Y El Comite (Miguel & The Committee) from the early 70s – led by Miguel Livichich, who made waves a bit earlier with El Syndikato! The percussion drives the sound pretty well, but the vocals are nicely out front in the mix, ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3 CDs
A fantastic collection of gems from the glam rock years – music that's much more obscure than the bigger work of the time by artists like Bowie, Bolan, or Queen – and which instead represents this amazing untapped underground that really opens up our understanding of the time! Some of ... CD
BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
A huge amount of music from Sonny & Cher – a set that not only includes three full albums, but also every one of their singles for Atco Records too! First up is Look At Us – a fantastic moment in 60s pop – and the record that forever launched the duo of Sonny & Cher upon ... CD
Imperial/BGO (UK), 1968/1969/1970. New Copy 2 CDs
A quartet of albums by Classics IV – a fantastic late 60s group who hardly ever get their full due! The group's forever remembered for their huge title hit on the first album – but throughout these records they maintain a really wonderful sound – all while also pushing themselves ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 12.99
A weird and wonderful little collection – maybe the first Easter-themed compilation we've ever seen – but one that barely hews to that rule as well! The set instead features lots of great 50s numbers that seem to deal with both chickens and rabbits – plus a few roosters too ... CD
Elektra, 1967. New Copy 4CD, DVD & LP set
What can we say? This is one of the greatest albums of all time! The record's got a sound that's completely unique – as crack LA garage punk rock meets Hollywood baroque production, and the result is an amazing bit of loud guitar noise backed by strings and horns, all graced by the godlike ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 5CD & 3DVD
A huge career-spanning retrospective of the work of Procol Harum – presented in a set that features material from every single album by the group, including a few of their more obscure later efforts! While most folks might know an early hit or two by Procol Harum, those who are truly in the ... CD
Now Again, 1971. New Copy Gatefold
A rare early moment from the legendary Austrian group Paternoster – sounds that predate their one and only cult-status album – originally created for the equally legendary film, Die Ersten Tage! The music here was never issued commercially at the time – and the release of these ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic/HNE (UK), 1971/1972/1973/1974/1975/1976/1977. New Copy 8 CDs
A full set of early work from REO Speedwagon – a group that some folks might dismiss for their crossover pop of the 80s, but who actually started out as a pretty great band! These guys cut their teeth playing hard in the bars of southern Illinois – and by the time they made their first ... CD
A&M, 1988. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the most novel, and dare we say coolest alternative soundtrack compilations of the late 80s! Stay Awake features a wildly diverse roster of artists covering, reinterpreting and paying tribute to songs from older Disney films – including Tom Waits, Sun Ra & His Arkestra, Natalie ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ryko/Run Out Groove, 1995. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A seedy, noirish, vintage R&B-fueled 90s alt rock classic from Morphine – their third straight great album in a hell of a strong run! If they hit their peak on Good, they're still riding it out here for sure – yes, indeed. They always had a way of pairing primitivist R&B ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), 1987. New Copy CD & 7 Inch
A gem of a record from Felt – one that has them complicating the sound they first brought to the Creation Records label – stretching out some of the songs a bit, and working with art rock legend Mayo Thompson of the Red Krayola in the production booth! The use of organ continues to be ... CD

This Mortal Coil

Filigree & Shadow
4AD (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Tremendous work from This Mortal Coil – only the second album by the 4AD Records collective, but one that doubles the length of the first – and explores some even deeper territory in the process! The group take songs that had been forgotten from previous generations – beautiful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yukihiro Takahashi

Saravah Saravah
Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Japanese singer Yukihiro Takahashi pays tribute to the classier side of European vocals here in this mellow gem from the late 70s – an album that's done with production help from Ryuichi Sakamoto, in an easygoing mode that fits the "city music" style that was the best side of ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 5CD
A huge look at the Liverpool scene in the UK – but one that doesn't focus on the generation of the Beatles and Brit Invasion groups – and instead brings some great attention to the city's contribution to the post-punk years and beyond! The package is tremendous – 100 songs in a ... CD

Guy Skornik

Tusk
Finders Keepers (UK), 1979. New Copy
Really beautiful electronics from the enigmatic Guy Skornik – an artist that we mostly know for his quirky concept record Pour Pauwels, but who sounds here like some of the best electronicians of the German scene of the 70s! All tracks are long and spun out – electronic, but with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Out-Sider (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Jodi's a duo, not a single guy – but together, the pair have a style that's very much in the best tradition of singular outsider rockers from the past! The music is maybe a bit electronic, a bit psych, and definitely tuneful enough to earn the "pop" in the title – but never ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rostrum, 2018. New Copy
... LP, Vinyl record album

Kim Ji-Yeon & Revival Cross

My Heart Wavers (LP sleeve edition)
Cobra Rose (Korea), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
A very moody, very enigmatic album from Korea – one that was recorded in 1974, but feels as if it's from the previous decade – and also has this oddly timeless sound as well! The tunes are dreamy, snakey, and served up with an undercurrent of slow funk underneath strings – almost ... CD

Pride (with David Axelrod)

Pride (2018 Black Friday Release)
Warner/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A lost treasure from David Axelrod – an obscure 1970 rock project, and one that's almost even hipper than his work with the Electric Prunes! The style here is rock, but the sound is very much in an Axelrod mode – quite spacious, and with this wonderful undercurrent of funk – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chrysalis/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy 3CD
A hugely expanded version of this record – with two and a half CD's worth of unreleased material! The core record is quite an unusual moment for Procol Harum – still riding strong here onto their ninth album as a group – but also bringing in the legendary production team of ... CD
Opalo/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Mindblowing work from Vainica Doble – a Spanish group with a really unusual feel! The combo features dreamy vocals from singers Gloria Van Aerssen & Carmen Santonja – folded together in a style that's unlike any other female harmony work we can think of – hardly the sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pamela Polland

Pamela Polland
Columbia/Beatball (Korea), 1972. New Copy
An obscure bit of 70s underground rock – the first solo album by Pamela Polland, who might be better known for her work in the psych-folk group Gentle Soul at the end of the 60s. This album's got a style that's a bit different than work by Gentle Soul – a lot more personal, and at ... CD
Modern Harmonic, Mid 70s. New Copy
Alan Munson might look like some sort of tough biker on the cover, but the music within is surprisingly sensitive – really well-penned singer/songwriter material, done with a style that's personal, and also quite unique! There's a vibe here that almost reminds us more of an artist of this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Harvest/Parlophone, 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The young Kate Bush is in fantastic form here – looking a bit goofy on the cover, sure – but firmly establishing that sound that would make the lady a genre unto herself! It's hard to believe a record like this was coming out during major years for punk and disco – but that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (Italy), 1968. New Copy 2CD
A 50th anniversary celebration of Italy's Capital Radio in 1968 – a set that combines familiar English rock of the late 60s with a huge amount of Italian pop as well! The mix of modes is great – and the 2CD package goes a long way towards illustrating the way that non-Anglo countries ... CD

Siouxsie & The Banshees

Peepshow (180 gram pressing)
Geffen, 1988. New Copy (reissue)
A big one for Siouxsie and the group – from a time when they were both pushing forth the darker corners of mainstream pop, and making a few surprising turns for the dancefloor tune! Some of the upbeat moments here crossed over surprisingly well in the clubs at the time, but even those still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Catherine Ribeiro & Alpes

Paix (180 gram pressing)
Philips/Anthology, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of those key records that shows the really unique side of the French scene at the start of the 70s – an underground world that was a bit hippie, certainly trippy, and very open to other ideas too – wrapped up in a sound that was both cosmic and intellectual at the same time! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic/Real Gone, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Big, heavy late 60s British rock from Gun – with the raw, lumbering and bluesy (or better, bloozy) power trio core that's fleshed out in the studio with horns and other more sweeping touches! It's wild stuff, a genuine precursor to heavy metal in the searing guitars, thundering drums and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CBC/Majik Bus (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Sweet jazzy pop from Barbara Gryfe – a singer who not only works here on a rare album for the Canadian Broadcasting System, but who also sings a bit in Hebrew too! The production and presentation have a sweet late 60s style – a bit influenced by the Dionne Warwick/Burt Bacharach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1989. New Copy
A seriously pivotal chapter in Flaming Lips history – which is to say a pivotal chapter psychelic rock at the end of the 20th century given how far The Flaming Lips influences reach – demo tracks recorded for the In A Priest Driven Ambulance LP! LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks

Cruisin' for Surf Bunnies
Light In The Attic, 1964. New Copy
One of the rarest Lee Hazlewood projects of the 60s, and one of the most unique as well – a set of surf-themed instrumentals, but served up with a nice current of exotica too! Given that Lee first rose to fame in the late 50s, for his excellent production of Duane Eddy's guitar – the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch & Go, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The last legendary album by Laughing Hyenas! On Hard Times they come back a half decade since their previous LP with more of a focus on the guttural blues vibe they'd always had on some level, and even a little bit of a Stones-y swagger, without discarding the caterwauling fury of the earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pearls Before Swine

Balaklava
ESP/Drag City, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The second album by Tom Rapp's legendary group Pearls Before Swine – and a haunting batch of tracks that is far and away one of our favorite rock albums of the 60s! The style of the music is incredible – a dark blend of rock and folk, with slight avant influences, in a style that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Restless/WEA, 1990. New Copy (reissue)
An important pre-fame record from Flaming Lips – a set when all the right pieces were in place, but still finding the right way to come together – a bit like the way that most important UK psych bands of the 60s sounded in 1966! By that, we mean that there's equal parts garage and ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Bender

Pop Surgery
Superior Viaduct, 1983. New Copy (reissue)
Weird and wonderful sounds from the enigmatic John Bender – a record that seems to beat the darkest of the cold wave generation at their own game! Don't think of the record as "pop surgery", so much as it is a complete dismantling of all the best electro elements of the period ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. New Copy 2CD
A live album, but one that's every bit as essential to the Led Zeppelin catalog as any of their studio albums from the 70s! In fact, the album may well be more important on its own – as it marked a real high point for the double-length live album in rock music – not just because it ... CD

Hampton Grease Band

Music To Eat
Shotput/Columbia, 1971. Used 2 CDs
The landmark album from Hampton Grease Band – a group who were every bit as weird and wonderful as contemporaries like Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa – and who work here with a similar sense of wit and freeplay in their instrumentation! Given that the group originally had some blues ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Sweet folksy pop from the glory days of A&M! Evie Sands has a voice that's emotive in a folk rock way, but which is here produced with smoother west coast arrangements that are more in an LA mode – which makes for a very cool mix of modes! The overall sound of the album is very hip ... CD

Laughing Hyenas

Life Of Crime
Touch & Go/Third Man, 1990. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best from garage-blues-noise rock pioneers Laughing Hyenas – a Touch & Go Records standout that flew well under the mainstream radar, but it prefigures the more incendiary early-to-mid 90s rock from the indies to the majors – a lot of more famous bands learned from this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD
The fourth fantastic chapter in this wonderful trip through the 60s – headed up by author Jon Savage, as a great soundtrack to his documents of the time! If you know Savage at all, you'll know to expect something different and fresh – an unusual take on the period, and one that goes ... CD
Musea/Lion, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A wicked collection of French prog and fusion from the start of the 70s – all with a jazzy or folky vibe that shows just how wonderfully warm the French scene was at the time – and how it could be very different than similar music coming from Germany, England, or Italy during the same ... LP, Vinyl record album

Velvet Underground

Loaded (180 gram vinyl)
Cotillion, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The end of the road for the Velvet Underground – but a set that's also one of the group's best-remembered albums too! The record marked a big shift for the group – a move to Atco from Verve, continuing to work without John Cale – and the sound is possibly more rockish and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rockets

Rockets
Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Fuzzed out late 60s LA rock from the Rockets – a mix of loose and lumbering guitar rock with some heavily buzzing chords which no doubt seemed like something worth exploring to Neil Young – who recruited most of the band into what would become Crazy Horse! The elements of Crazy Horse ... LP, Vinyl record album
