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

Warner, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
The seminal debut of The Grateful Dead – a record that was maybe as important to the American psychedelic scene as the first two albums by Pink Floyd were to the UK! Like those sets, this one almost seems to come out of nowhere – still very much a part of its time, with trippiness and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat It Down
Neutral/Water Wing, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic female combo – one that we'd rank right up there with The Slits, ESG, or Pulsallama for their offbeat energy and quirky approach to music! The set was recorded at Noise New York, and definitely has a spirit that recalls the best of the no wave generation – as the group mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Y Pants EP
99 Records/Water Wing, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
A very hip female trio from the New York scene at the start of the 80s – working here in a strongly downtown mode that really fits the album's placement as part of the catalog of the groundbreaking 99 Records! The group have a quality that's maybe even more DIY than some of the other groups ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mississippi, Early 80s. New Copy
Really wonderful sounds from the enigmatic Space Lady – an artist who mostly performed on the streets of Boston and San Francisco in the 70s, but who also managed to make the handful of recordings featured in this set! The tunes are wonderfully spare, and surprisingly beautiful – often ... LP, Vinyl record album
Los Lobos, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Self-released early gem by the East LA legends Los Lobos – private pressed by the band back in the day, and nearly impossible to find an original copy! Humbly billed as "just another band from East LA", Los Lobos has always been whole lot more than that, and this early acoustic set, ... LP, Vinyl record album
In The Woodland Of Weir
Fontana, 1968. Very Good
Fantastic work from this heavy-hitting combo from Chicago – a group with a harder sound than even some of the better-known acts on Dunwich! The music here definitely carries elements of the blues espoused in the group's name – but the overall execution is much rougher, and more garagey ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy
That's a really trippy cover on this second album from Blonde On Blonde – and the sound is nicely trippy, too – a bit more complex than on their debut album – with just the right dose of psych elements thrown into the mix of their well-crafted songs! Acoustic guitar actually gets ... CD
Pye/Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Great work from a group who were maybe a few steps ahead of most of their UK contemporaries – able to mix in some deeper ideas with more familiar grooves – with a lyrical power that's way more than some of the usual themes from the beat group generation! There's definitely a few cuts ... CD
Rebirth (with bonus tracks)
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy
These guys may have a name that evokes a Bob Dylan album, but their sound is something else entirely – a magical blend of simple instruments in a really unique way – and a songwriting voice that really sets these guys apart from the rest! There were so many great UK groups at the end ... CD
RCA/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Iggy Pop may have left The Stoges behind, but he's lost none of his edge – and really finds a new level of solo greatness on this sublime classic from the 70s! The set was produced by David Bowie, who also plays piano on the set – and has Carlos Alamar adding in some guitar – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An album with a really creepy cover, but a sound that's maybe a bit more down to earth overall – late 70s electronic rock, in a manner that's a bit like the generation of French groups like Space Art, or like the sound of the German scene when it was tightening things up a bit more from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Honeymoon In Red
Widowspeak Productions/Bang (Spain), 1987. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really great return to form for Lydia Lunch – maybe her sharpest rock album of the late 80s, and certainly one of the few that rivals the genius of her earlier records! Make no mistake, Lydia was hardly faltering at the time – she was instead working on film and spoken projects that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
The Ventures cut plenty of great music back in the 60s – and although a wealth of it was released singles and albums for the Dolton and Liberty labels, there was also a heck of a lot of great stuff that still got stuck in the vaults! As you'll hear on this excellent fourth volume in the ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Searing instrumentals from the vaults of Norman Petty – the producer whose Clovis, New Mexico studio helped really transform the sound of rock music in the early 60s – creating a raw guitar sound that had a huge influence for years to come! Petty's music might be somewhere in the mode ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Great garage work from the east side of the San Francisco Bay – a scene that's not nearly as well known for gritty rock as Los Angeles or the Pacific Northwest! This batch of nuggets really flips the lid off the East Bay scene – and shows that the area around Oakland was heavy in ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from the man who opened up the electric guitar in a whole new way at the end of the 50s – one of the first players to really embrace fuzz and distortion, and use it to completely transform the sound of his instrument on record! Wray's one of those players who hit big at the ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy
An incredible album – one of the greatest rock albums of the 60s, and a record we'd place right up there on the shelf next to Pet Sounds or Forever Changes! The arrangements are sublime – proof that the Zombies were growing way past just a simple Brit Invasion style, into a world of ... CD
Etiquette/Big Beat (UK), 1965. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
The Sonics Boom indeed – because back in the day, the group were easily one of the rawest, hardest, heaviest sounds to come out of the Pacific Northwest – and that's saying quite a lot, given their other company on the scene! This early full album for the Etiquette label has The Sonics ... CD
Let It Be
Twin Tone/Rhino, 1984. New Copy (reissue)
The masterpiece by one of the greatest, most sincere rock bands of all time! Let It Be veers all over the place, or at least as much as jangly rock music can, in the best way possible. Includes the pseudo twangy opener "I Will Dare", with the distinctly midwestern hardcore of the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sundazed, 1969/1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A special single that marks the 7" debut of two tracks that have only been unearthed through the Experience Hendrix project! The take on "Stone Free" is the one that was originally issued on the Valleys Of Neptune set – a bit looser and less iconic than the classic release of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
