Townes Van Zandt

Best Of Townes Van Zandt
Tomato/Fat Possum, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A pretty much flawless collection of tunes from Townes Van Zandt's most loved album from the late 60s to late 70s – a different tracklist from earlier Best Ofs, and a set that really does serve up a treasure trove of achingly beautiful songs! Includes some of the best material from Our Mother ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spoon/Mute (UK), 1972. New Copy
One of the most essential Can albums, and perhaps their best – have drums ever sounded better on a record? Ege Bamyasi features some of Jaki Liebezeit's greatest beats, from the shorter songs like the amazing "Vitamin C", "I'm So Green", and "Spoon", to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tortoise

TNT
Thrill Jockey, 1998. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Tortoise's third album, and pretty remarkable creative leap for the inventive Chicago ensemble – now with the great guitarist Jeff Parker in the fold! Like the earlier records, Like their earlier records, TNT features an incredibly haunting mix of percussion, electronics, and jazz-oriented ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
One of the breeziest breaths of fresh air in mid 90s inide rock! As much as any band of the era, The Sea & Cake managed to filter diverse tastes into their own music, from easygoing, unaggressive indie pop & rock, to Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian pop, rock and soul rhythms, to some vaguely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy
The first album in years from Tortoise – again stretching out creatively in fascinating ways, some subtle and others obvious – and all of it compelling! The Catastrophist is partly inspired by work Tortoise was commissioned to produce by the City Of Chicago, material that could be used ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 2004. New Copy (reissue)
Wow, this is SO not the Tortoise that first set the underground aflame in the early 90s – the group has evolved and opened up in ways we never would have expected. With It's All Around You it's emerged with an airy, open, stargazing set of tracks that resemble the languid atmosphere of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
A wonderful look at a shifting sound in British rock at the start of the 70s – a move away from more urban themes to rootsier ones – a shift that almost marks a second huge wave of influence from American music, but in ways that were very different from the blues and soul than first ... CD
Asylum/4AD, 1974. New Copy 2CD
A pretty amazing effort from country rock progenitor Gene Clark! This one blends breezy songcraft that's not too far off from his previous couple of great solo albums – rustic harmonies and memorable lyricism flavored by acoustic guitars – with far more deft studio touches such as ... CD
Transatlantic/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Gerry Rafferty is best known on our shores for one big crossover AOR hit of the late 70s – but overseas in England, his career started much earlier – as you'll hear in this great set of material! The first CD in the set features two albums recorded under the name of The Humblebums ... CD

Kak

Kak
Epic/Guerssen (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal album from the Cali scene of the late 60s – by a group who only ever delivered this one full length set to Epic Records! Yet despite the lack of deeper catalog, Kak have a sound that rivals all the big names of the Bay Area scene that was exploding at the time – and although ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A great little collection of autumn-themed tunes – and one that definitely lives up to the spirit of the Indian Summer in the title! By that, we mean that these songs are maybe more about the cycle of rebirth and new life that's triggered by fall – the shift away from the dog days of ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic assortment of forward-thinking sounds – music that comes from some of the farthest corners of the postwar experimental underground – and which was all famously cited by the group Nurse With Wound as a big influence on their earliest albums! That reference aside, though, the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mag/Munster (Spain), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the heaviest albums of the legendary Peruvian scene at the start of the 70s – a record that has all the sharpness, sparkle, and edge of some of the heavy rock giants of the UK at the time – but which also has a sound that's somewhat looser and more inventive too! Traffic Sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lion, 1967/1968. New Copy
A great little package that brings together the first two rare albums by Index – a group that started as a cover band in the suburbs of Detroit in the late 60s, but quickly found their way to some tremendous music of their own! The trio's got a style that's jamming and trippy at the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ember/Grapefruit (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD
An unreleased album from singer Polly Niles – a unique talent with a style that fits in strongly with some of the rising tide of female vocalists rising up at the start of the 70s – an elite group that might include Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, and Carole King! Polly's much more obscure ... CD
Continental/Groovie/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Massively heavy sounds from A Bolha – a Brazilian group who were previously known as The Bubbles, and backed up Gal Costa during the Tropicalia years – but who work here in a fuzzy, bassy groove that's totally great – definitely an heir to the headier sounds of the UK scene at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Paul Simon wrote some really fantastic songs in the 60s – and while most of them received big exposure in his duo with Art Garfunkel, many were other recorded by other artists in versions that were pretty great too – as you'll hear in this excellent collection of rock, pop, soul, and ... CD

Kim Jung Mi

Wind
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1973. New Copy
A tasty, trippy little set of Korean psychedelic folk from Kim Jung Mi – another wonderful little batch from a great run of work in the early-to-mid 70s! Wind has a breezier, more meditative approach on some numbers – with some strings and a fair stripped down sound supporting her ... CD

Kim Jung Mi

Kim Jung Mi
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1974. New Copy
Groovy folk funk from mid 70s Korea – mad, pulpy tunes from Kim Jung Mi – possibly her best work ever! This wonderful self-titled set is a pretty deep left turn from her other material that we've been lucky enough to get our hands on – this one really goes deeper into the ... CD
Capitol/Acid Symposium (Greece), 1969. New Copy
One of the best psyche albums we've ever heard on Capitol from the 60s – an introspective session with lots of space, sounds, and plenty of dark corners! The album reminds us a lot of work by Gandalf, who also recorded for Capitol at the time – very laid back at times, with a gentle ... CD
Sire, 1979. New Copy 4CD & 2LP
Prime live material from the Ramones – recorded on the final night of 1977, right when the group was at the height of their power! If you ever got a chance to see The Ramones back in the day, the sound was really amazing – every bit as short, sharp, and focused as the studio records ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy 6CD
An amazing package – three great albums by The Fall, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Hex Enduction Hour – one of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The ... CD
Warner, 1977. New Copy
One of the most classic albums of the 70s – a never-ending hit that's continued to inspire generations! Back in the early years of punk, we were thinking that Rumours was a record that would pass by quickly – but it turns out to have a fair bit more staying power than Never Mind The ... CD
Capitol (Czech Republic), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 6CD
Overlooked later work from America – not the huge AM radio hits from the time when the group was a trio, and produced by George Martin – but instead, material from a point when they'd trimmed down to a duo, and really found a great way to move their music forward! The approach here ... CD
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
The greatest album ever by the Fall? We're always tempted to say so – because there's something here so perfect, so focused, it's hard to think of a better album to illustrate the genius of Mark E Smith! The rhythms are weirder, the lyrics more poetic, and the guitars a bit more razor sharp ... LP, Vinyl record album
Misawa Home/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Spare soundscapes from Japanese keyboardist Yutaka Hirose – mostly composed on a variety of electronic instruments, but with a vibe that's very natural and organic overall! The music is very slow-moving, and unfolds at a quiet pace – all definitely in the tradition of the best Ambient ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reactive (UK), 1977/1982. New Copy 4CD
Great live work from Tangerine Dream – a group who, by the midpoint of their career, arguably sounded even better in a concert setting than they did in the studio – often working with a stronger sense of darkness that hearkens back to their roots, with a mix of electronic elements that ... CD
Midi/We Want Sounds (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A record with a sound that's as striking as its cover – the second album from Akiko Yano, and one that really sets her apart from the rest! At a time when some of Yano's contemporaries were going for sweeter, smoother modes – Akiko moved sideways, and offered up music like this almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, Late 60s. New Copy 4 x 7 inch set
A fantastic treasure for David Bowie fans – the first-ever vinyl appearance of some really wonderful material recorded right at a time when he was really finding his voice! A few cuts here are demos that offer very different versions of the better-known tracks, and other tunes are completely ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Akiko Yano

Japanese Girl
Midi/We Want Sounds (UK), 1976. New Copy
The debut album from Akiko Yano – and a set that's gotten more than a bit of acclaim over the years, in part because the group Little Feat back her on the first half of the record. Akiko sings in Japanese throughout, which sounds surprisingly great next to the rootsier sounds of Lowell ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP
A wild assortment of music from an equally wild source – a BBC Radio program hosted by Jarvis Cocker, presented on Sunday mornings as a way to relax and reach some sort of deeper spiritual consciousness! The show was never churchy – but maybe an attempt to find a new sort of inner ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Columbia, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
One of THE greatest experimental rock albums of the 60s – a landmark effort from a short-lived group that included avant musicians Joe Byrd and Gordon Marron! The group's got a really tremendous sound – part psyche, part electronic, and part folk rock – all put together in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Slash/Run Out Groove, 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The last live stand of The Germs – capturing the band's raw, caterwauling ferocity, underappreciated musicianship behindDarby Crash's feral howls and sly humor – just 4 days before Darby's death. Given the band's well earned reputation for utter chaos, the most stunning thing about this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 4CD
An insane amount of material from the enigmatic Iain Matthews – pulled from his personal archives, and featuring rare material with Matthews Southern Comfort, Plainsong, and some of his other projects – plus plenty of other tracks recorded on his own! These aren't just rough nuggets or ... CD
HoZac, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Unsung early 70s genius from Dwight Twilley & Phil Seymour – a few years earlier than their legendary power pop in the Dwight Twilley Band, and a pretty stunning batch of tightly melodic material that's just raw enough – top shelf stuff seeing proper release for the first time ever! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur Russell

Instrumentals
Audika, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
An incredible chapter in the Arthur Russell story – and one that's not nearly as well-known as his club singles and art rock work of the 80s! The 2LP package presents some long-lost longer form work by Russell – instrumental pieces composed and recorded in the 70s and early 80s, most ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
A totally amazing record that deserves to be right at the top of the greatest trippy albums of all times – even though it was never issued at the time! The Moon Express are a group shrouded in mystery – whose one claim to fame was an appearance on a Monkees TV special, but who also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris & Cosey

Heartbeat
Rough Trade/Conspiracy International (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
The amazing first album from Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti – done after the breakup of Throbbing Gristle, and in a way that really sets the duo apart from the rest of the group! The music is dark, but also very tuneful – analogue electronics used much more clearly than on most TG ... LP, Vinyl record album

Durutti Column

Without Mercy (4CD set)
Factory Benelux (Luxembourg), 1986. New Copy 4 CDs
A beautiful little record from Durutti Column – and a bit of a departure for Vini Reilly, given that there's more of an overall concept to the album! The set's an all-instrumental one – a bit different than his blue-tinged vocal work of the first few Factory albums – but it's ... CD

Charlie Megira

Tomorrow's Gone
Numero, 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The first-ever vinyl collection of work from Charlie Megira – an Israeli guitarist with a strong love of the roots of rock and roll – and a sound and style that feel like they're lifted right out of some rare records from the vinyl collection of The Cramps! Most of these tunes just ... LP, Vinyl record album

Runaways

Queens Of Noise
Mercury/Modern Harmonic, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The second great album by Kim Fowley's pet Runaways – the album with Lita Ford, Joan Jett and the rest of the gals cloaked in fog and straddling polls on the cover – making them look like a cross between Mott The Hoople and the headliners at that seedy club by the airport! Like the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Runaways

Runaways
Mercury/Modern Harmonic, 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The glammy garage punk classic! Evil genius Kim Fowley + hard-rockin' underage girls + 1976 = one of the most immediately catchy, damn near illicit razor-edged trash rock albums ever! Although it was a joke to the rock literati of the time (and may still be. . .stupid snobs) this album was ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Dairies/Rotorelief (France), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)
Legendary early work from Nurse With Wound – one of the group's first few albums, done at a time when it was quite difficult to ever figure out where they were coming from! Steven Stapleton's clearly got a strong influence here from 20th Century avant composition modes, particularly tape-base ... CD

Michael Rother

Fernwarme
Random/Gronland (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
Slow, spare, almost sad-tinged work from Michael Rother – a set that's kind of a distillation of his longer krautrock legacy into a subtle, minimal mode! The tunes are all instrumentals, with these beautifully-placed guitar lines, keyboard parts, and other sonic touches – very much in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Virgin/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
The tremendous debut of The Mekons – a very different group at this stage than the well-loved act that has graced the Chicago scene for years! Instead, The Mekons resonate with a quality that really shows their link to the same Leeds scene that spawned Gang Of Four – and, if the gods ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy
A long-overdue full length album from Ace Of Cups – a really unusual female group from the Bay Area scene of the late 60s – but one who never hit the heights of their bigger San Francisco contemporaries! The girls have this really great look on the back – kind of flower power, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atomic Forest

Disco Roar
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A really wild album from this Indian psych group of the 70s – a set that's a bit different than their better-known first and second albums, but which is pretty darn groovy overall! The set's definitely somewhere in the "disco" of the title – but not in a slick, commercial way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michael Rother

Flammende Herzen
Gronland (Germany), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
The debut solo album from pivotal Krautrock figure Michael Rother – who was there for the genesis of Kraftwerk, co-habited Neu! and went on to Harmonia – and if his early solo albums aren't quite as revolutionary as those legendary records (and really, what is?) – they're still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Jaguars

Les Jaguars Vol 2
Disques Merite/Return To Analog (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A record with a sexy cover and a slinky sound to match – the rare second album from the cool French instrumental combo Les Jaguars – a 60s group who start in modes that resemble American surf guitar, but really take off into some great directions of their own! The style here is ... LP, Vinyl record album
