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


Raks/Survival Research (Australia), 1960s. New Copy
Iranian garage rock – kind of hard to believe at first, but a surprising musical discovery overall! The package documents a very overlooked scene – rock bands from late 60s Iran who were clearly inspired by the American underground of the time – working in a heady brew of guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album
King, Late 50s. New Copy
The legendary Charlie Feathers is best known as one of the rawest rockers on the Memphis scene of the 50s – but during the decade, he cut some of his best work for King Records in Cincinnati – a label who captured the dynamic energy of Charlie with the same skill they brought to their ... CD
Venture/Lion, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a record from the Cali scene of the late 60s – even though it was recorded in LA by a band from Canada! 49th Parallel are one of the great lost groups from the time – a combo who've got a sound that's very fresh, very much their own, yet who also resonate with all the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gypsy

Gypsy
Metromedia/Sundazed, 1970. New Copy
The fantastic debut of Gypsy – a group who blend wonderful harmonies with really well-crafted inspiration – very much in the jazz-inspired jamming of some of the headier California groups, like Spirit or Santana at their best! The group use a swirling blend of organ and guitar next to ... CD
SRB/Guerssen (Spain), Late 1970s. New Copy (reissue)
The middle child in the mighty Seoul combo San Ul Lim's trio of successive garage/psych masterpieces of the late 70s – and San Ul Lim 2 might be the best and most adventurous of the lot – full of spacey sounds and more experimental passages! If San Ul Lim 1 was the most sunshine rock ... LP, Vinyl record album

Creation

Action Painting
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
One of the great lost groups of the UK scene of the 60s – not lost to UK audiences, or to hipsters over the generations – but still an act that never made the impact on these shores that they should! The Creation are step in step right up there with early material by The Who or Small ... CD

Happy End

Kazemachi Roman
Pony Canyon (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A seminal bit of Japanese rock from the early 70s – performed by a group that included Haruomi Hosono, and who has a style that borrows from the best of the LA scene of the late 60s! The tunes are extremely catchy – done in a folksy style that has compressed guitars and spacious ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Joy

Benny Joy Rocks
Bear Family (Germany), Late 1950s. New Copy
Rockabilly legend Billy Joy definitely rocks – hardly a household name in the 50s, but a killer figure in the rock and roll underground – and one whose fame has just grown more and more over the years! The package is a beautifully-done tribute to Benny's genius – and presents the ... CD
Titan/Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CDs
Seminal sounds from the Kansas City scene of the late 70s – a wealth of power pop work from the tiny Titan label – all brought together in one of the most brilliant packages we've ever seen from the Numero Group! Like most Numero releases, there's a great story behind this set – ... CD
Caroline/Weekend (Germany), 1974/2024. New Copy 2LP
An incredible album from guitarist Fred Frith – his solo debut, and a record that really set the tone for so many other musicians for years to come! Frith wasn't the first person to improvise on the guitar – but he might have been the first to use an electric in ways that tied together ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Rev

Martin Rev
Infidelity/Bureau B (Germany), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
The brilliant solo debut of Martin Rev – a set that feels like it's peeled away all his best contributions from the first Suicide album, then found a way to serve them up with a slightly different vibe that really sets the album apart! There's lots of analog fuzz and echo – that same ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 2CDs
John Savage offers us a mighty nice look at the years of post-disco, and post-post-punk – served up here in a great mix of music from a time when soulful styles were mixing it up with returning rock on the dancefloor! The work here is from a time when the UK scene was having big global ... CD
Spoon/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A mid 70s set from Can that's still very much in the best spirit of their earliest work – mostly longish tracks and all quite hypnotic – wonderful stuff from the team of Irmin Schmidt, Jacki Liebezeit, Holger Czukay, and Michael Karoli. Sure, Damo's not on vocals any more, but the ... CD
Capitol/Ace (UK), Late 1960s/1970s. New Copy
Glen Campbell cut plenty of fantastic songs for Capitol Records – but year after year, some of the best were written by the young Jimmy Webb – an important 60s songwriter who brought magic to a number of different singers, but maybe clicked most strongly with Glen! You'll know the key ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
The new sound of the European scene at the end of the 70s – music that carries plenty of inspiration from post-punk modes, but which also carries forth some key elements of prog as well – all at a level that's quite a surprise if you only know more iconic material of the time! The ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Lovely 60s girl pop from Lesley Gore – the sweet, soaring, brightly sunny Magic Colors album – released in full for the first time ever – and with a huge assortment of bonus tracks, too! Magic Colors should have come out on Mercury in 1967, but it wasn't to be. Well, better late ... CD
Liberty/BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
CD...$7.99 18.98
A pair of albums from the great Jackie DeShannon – back to back on a single CD! First up is the UK-only release Don't Turn Your Back On Me – a great batch of material with a sweet west coast pop groove – and one that includes a fair number of original tunes written by Jackie ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy
CD...$7.99 18.99
Two very unusual albums from the great Graham Bond – back to back in a single set! Holy Magick is quite spiritual, almost supernatural at times – very much what you'd expect from the cover and title! The record's light years away from Bond's British beat group work of a few years ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), Late 1960s/Early 1970s. New Copy 6CD
A landmark batch of work from the British jazz scene – the complete early run of recordings from Colosseum, maybe the greatest jazz-rock group of their time! The combo grew out of earlier work in the beat group generation – informed strongly by American jazz and R&B, but already on ... CD
SRB/Guerssen (Spain), Late 1970s. New Copy (reissue)
Super fuzzed out, trippy 70s psych rock from Korea's San Ul Lim – an album recorded by the Seoul rockers in the power trio format of guitar, bass and drums – but with such a fuzzy, dense tone that it's hard to fathom how on Earth they got the sound! The opening track starts in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Garcia

Almost Acoustic
Grateful Dead/ATO, 1987. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A wonderful, easygoing live set by the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band – a short-lived 80s project that featured a whole new side of the Grateful One's musical explorations! In a way, the music here almost goes back to some of Garcia's roots – which were occasionally a bit bluegrass-oriente ... LP, Vinyl record album
Slash/Craft, 1982. New Copy 2CDs
A surprising classic from the early 80s underground – a record that came to the world from the scene in Milwaukee, where neither the group nor the rest of the world would have expected the album to have such staying power over the decades! And yet, from the very first needle drop, it's hard ... CD
Private Stock/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy
An overlooked 70s gem from the great Jose Feliciano – a set that really continues the warm soul styles he'd hit on his last few years at RCA – a wonderful blend for his unique vocals and his tremendous way of putting over a tune! The set was recorded down at Muscle Shoals, but it's got ... CD

Freeborne

Peak Impressions
Monitor, 1968. New Copy Gatefold
One of the few straight rock records ever issued on the mostly-folk Monitor Records label – a great 60s outing from Freeborne, a group with a sound that's as tripped-out as you might expect from the cover! Instrumentation is heavy on organ and guitars, both acoustic and electric, but there's ... CD
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Numero Group does it again – and manages to pull together all the best bits from the crucially overlooked powerpop scene in the Land Of Lincoln – a wealth of wonderful groups from the 70s and 80s, all of whom recorded great indie sounds in Illinois! Sure, you've heard of Cheap Trick, ... CD

Dan Lacksman

Dan Lacksman
RKM/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy
A really cool record from the European scene of the early 70s – a set that features rockish vocals and guitar, but also a heck of a lot of moog and other keyboards too – all of which makes for an album that's years ahead of its time! Sure, there had been plenty of moog pop instrumental ... CD
Virgin (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A key album in the legendary early years of Gong – that mythical moment when the group was almost more like a cult or a commune than just another rock band on the scene! The set has the group very firmly ensconced in their French country home, where the record was recorded – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 5CD
Nothing weird here, just wonderful – a fantastic assortment of music from a time when the British scene was really changing things up – served up in a book-styled package with notes that are as dynamic as its music! The tracks here move way past the obvious – that's an image of ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The second heady dip into the under-discovered underground of the late 60s – and a package that's every bit as ear-opening as the first Nuggets volume! As with that classic, there's material here that really shows the full spectrum of the American scene in the mid 60s – music that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of those few classic cases where a compilation of tracks was maybe even more influential than the original music itself – as this early 70s collection of 60s material turned out to shape and influence generations for decades to come! Guitar genius Lenny Kaye put the set together famously ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yon Seok Won

Mermaid
Oasis/Pleasantville (South Korea), 1991. New Copy (reissue)
An instrumental set that's partly in the mode of some of the Japanese work of the 80s, but which also has maybe more dynamically tuneful moments too – tracks balanced between mellower piano/keyboard lines and others that have more pronounced guitar parts and rhythms! There's a lot of warmth ... LP, Vinyl record album
Light In The Attic, 2007. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The last-ever album from the legendary Lou Reed – and a set that's completely different from the sounds he gave the world in the Velvet Underground, and on most of his solo work in recent decades too! The music is spare and ambient, and very much lives up to the "meditations" in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
(Red vinyl – with a bonus 7-inch featuring their surprise hit soundtrack cover of "Wild Thing"!) LP, Vinyl record album

Tortoise

TNT
Thrill Jockey, 1998. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Tortoise's third album and a pretty remarkable creative leap for the inventive Chicago ensemble – now with the great guitarist Jeff Parker in the fold! Like their earlier records, TNT features a haunting mix of percussion, electronics, and jazz-oriented instrumentation – put together ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers

Back In Your Life (180 gram blue vinyl pressing)
Beserkley/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A real lost treasure from Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers – a record that has them breaking from the kid pop of some of their other late 70s albums, setting the stage for Richman's unabashed love-inspired pop of the 80s. There's some really wonderful tracks on the set that have ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A set that really digs deep into the British scene of the early 70s – a package pitched around the idea of opening acts for supergroups at a rock festival, and one that serves up a whole host of groups who never fully got their due on our side of the Atlantic at the time! These aren't ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2LP
A host of raw rockers that were originally served up as 7" singles – all blasting out together with a tremendous amount of power – as if you're enjoying a night with choice cuts all stacked up in the jukebox pictured on the cover! The set's way more than any sort of oldies ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The new sound of the European scene at the end of the 70s – music that carries plenty of inspiration from post-punk modes, but which also carries forth some key elements of prog as well – all at a level that's quite a surprise if you only know more iconic material of the time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cluster

Cluster 1971
Brain/Bureau B (Germany), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
The first rumblings of genius from German electronic giants Cluster – but oddly, a record recorded without any synthesizers at all! The team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius are both playing organ here – as well as cello and Hawaiian guitar, and some "audio-generator&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone/Lion, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible concept album from the South African scene of the early 70s – a record that mixes rootsy percussion with plenty of freak and fuzz – all in a style that seems to take UK psychedelic inspirations and forge them into a very unique Johannesburg expression! Acoustic elements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1993. New Copy (reissue)
A creative left turn for Waits – written for an ambitious theatrical project, which to a certain degree takes him into surprising new territory and is all the more exciting for it – but still comes through as great late Island-era Tom Waits album in its own light! The Black Rider stage ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1992. New Copy (reissue)
One of the last couple of great records Waits made for Island, and a defining moment in his career! Leave it to Waits to cut a bunch of songs that wrestle with mortality and the fleeting nature of life head on, but have as much fun with it as he does worry or mourn. It's got some rumbling raw ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red, Mid 60s. New Copy 3CDs
A package that looks like a tape box, and which includes a whole host of never-heard tracks from the great Glenda Collins – a stunning female singer who worked with UK production genius Joe Meek back in the 60s! Glenda recorded a few key tracks that were issued as singles – soaring ... CD
Mainstream/Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy
An incredible treasure from the late 60s underground – the one and only album from the Jelly Bean Bandits, a group who really should have been huge! These guys are hardly the sweeter pop act you might expect from their name – and instead, they've got a rock-solid sound that's very ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
Their first one, now a classic in the once-burgeoning "post rock" genre (much as we hate using that term) – and it's hands down one of best and most influential albums to come out of Chicago in the early 90s! A spare, rhythmic blend of moody grooves laid down by 2 basses, 2 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Insect Trust

Insect Trust
Capitol/Life Goes On, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A sublime album from The Insect Trust – a really unique group who blend folk rock, jazz, and some nice trippy Eastern overtones! The style's really a great product of the time – a cross-cultural late 60s session recorded with a freedom from labels and categories – featuring ... LP, Vinyl record album

Talking Heads

Naked
Sire/Rhino, 1988. New Copy (reissue)
The final album from the Talking Heads, and a set that returns them to some of the global elements of their mid-period records, but with a vibe that shows lots of the shifting studio technology of the time! The set's almost a precursor of some of the remix modes that would show up on the world ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sandy Salisbury & Curt Boettcher

Try For The Sun
Sundazed, Mid 60s. New Copy
Incredible early work from Curt Boettcher and Sandy Salisbury – best known for their collaboration in the fantastic groups Ballroom and Millennium – but heard here in a set of intimate demos the pair recorded around the same time! There's plenty of Sunshine Pop genius on these cuts, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Ace (UK), 1967. New Copy
A long-overdue look at a little-heard side of the career of 60s pop giant Lou Christie – his great but ill-fated recordings for Columbia Records – most of which appear here for the first time ever! Lou hit the label right after a massive hit for MGM – and Columbia gave him plenty ... CD

San Ul Lim (Sanullim)

San Ul Lim 1 – Already Now
SRB/Guerssen (Spain), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
One of the coolest Korean records you'll ever hope to hear – a set recorded in the mid 70s, but done with the same sort of psychedelic blend of jazz and funk elements you'd hear in Japanese albums from the early part of the decade! These guys use lots of fuzz on their guitars – a tone ... LP, Vinyl record album
