Parlophone, 2017. New Copy 2CD
A triumphant return for The Gorillaz – as improbably (impossibly!?) brilliant as ever! Much like the real life post-millennium culture we all inhabit, The Gorillaz exist in a world both virtual and physical – with artist and conceptualist Jamie Hewlett, singer/guiding force Damon Albarn ... CD
Legacy, Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A long-overdue follow-up to the Pacific Ocean Blue album by Dennis Wilson – material that was recorded for a second solo album, but never issued at the time – although every bit as much a testament to his maturing genius! The material has appeared on CD before – as part of bonus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Alshire/Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy Gatefold
An absolute treasure of tripped-out, space age symphonic funk from 101 Strings! On this set the undocumented group of session players run through a whole bunch of spacey cuts, complete with fuzzed out electric guitar and sitar, weird period electronics, and more than a few funky drum breaks. It's ... CD
Past & Present (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
The Girls In The Garage series takes a special turn here – in a set that's mostly pulled from records sourced in Singapore – and which offer a very different approach to the usual female rock modes featured in the series! Many of the numbers are covers of American rock and pop hits of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Radiation Deluxe Series (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Stunning pre-punk work from late 60s UK – and a set that really lives up to the promise of its title! We'll admit that we were a bit suspicious at first, but the strength of the work here is incredible – nothing like the psyche, blues, or jazz-inspired rock coming out of the British ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Overlooked genius from Bobby Hatfield – the lesser-remembered Righteous Brother – or at least one who never hit the fame of his duo partner Bill Medley! Yet Bobby's a hell of a singer, and really steps out wonderfully here – on a range of rare tracks that includes material cut ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Drop the "pop" from the title, and focus on the "swamp" – as the sounds here are a heady brew of all that was going down in the backwaters of the Louisiana scene at the end of the 50s – strands of blues, hillbilly, R&B, and early rock modes – all served up ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, Late 70s. New Copy
The early years of Cheap Trick – revisited here in a wonderful set of rare material that was never issued at the time! In the late 70s, the Chicago area group were really on fire – and could do no wrong – so even though these nuggets didn't make it onto their albums (or even ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 5CD
The complete works of The Membranes – one of the few groups who could find a way to mix a noisy guitar sound with some of the more forward-moving styles of the UK indie scene of the 80s – in a way that maybe made these guys not only one of the most important groups to follow in the ... CD
BGO (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 2CD
A trio of overlooked Warner Brothers albums from The Youngbloods! Rock Festival is a record with a bit of a joke on the cover, but one that's also got a much more mature version of The Youngbloods than just a few years before – a group who are moving past straighter folk, bringing in bits of ... CD
All Bumm
Long Hair (Germany), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A group that sound more like a 70s funk act from their name – but instead a great overlooked German act, with a sweetly compressed vibe that's different than some of the more familiar prog or psych of the time! The group shares members with Amon Duul II and Embryo, but sounds like neither of ... LP, Vinyl record album
City Of Gold/Beautiful Lies You Could Live In
Warner/BGO (UK), 1971. New Copy
A pair of Warner Brothers gems from Tom Rapp and Pearls Before Swine – back to back on a single CD! City Of Gold is a return to folksier forms for Tom Rapp and Pearls Before Swine – working here in territory that's very different than some of the baroque light arrangements used on ... CD
Penpal (Japan), 2017. New Copy
A sing-songy Japanese group with a sound that's every bit what you'd expect from the 60s style of the cover – a group who've clearly been inspired by groups like We Five, Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, and other perfect purveyors of the best sort of sunny sounds – so much so that the ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2017. New Copy
... LP, Vinyl record album
Stag O Lee (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy
Raw, rare tracks from the late 50s and early 60s – the kind of completely obscure, completely raunchy 45s that have really come back in full force in recent years – supported by a global network of clubs and DJs that includes London's hip Buzzsaw Joint! This second set in the series is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Security/It's Too Late
Bama Lamas, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
Floorshaking sounds from Chicago's Bama Lama's with guest singer Gabrielle Sutton – paying tribute to the glorious dawn of the 60s guy/girl rocking rhythm & soul singles of Tarheel Slim & Little Ann with the songs – while paying homage to the groovy style pre-Ye Ye French rock ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s! The newly-electrified Dylan really takes off here – putting more punch and bit into his already-strong lyrical approach – and twisting things in amazing ways that still leave us breathless all these many ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 2017. New Copy
... LP, Vinyl record album
Reflection
Warp, 2017. New Copy 2LP
Fantastic sounds from Brian Eno – music that feels like it came right out of the same period as his early discreet music experiments – and which reminds us that, although countless others have explored this territory, nobody does it better than the man who invented it! The sounds are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
