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


Island, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A really beautiful little record from John Martyn – a set in which he's really perfected his talents, and found a way to stand out from just about anyone else in the pack – including the best of his British folk rock contemporaries! Martyn plays acoustic guitar, but the record's hardly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Collins Kids

Rockin'est
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy
A killer collection from one of the coolest rockin acts of the 50s – a pair of younger kids, but who work together with a fire and frenzy that honestly beats most of the bigger rockabilly acts of the time! The Collins Kids are the stuff of legend – the kind of act that could hardly ... CD
Mute, Mid 70s. New Copy
Early and amazing sounds from electronic genius Chris Carter – material recorded in his home studio during the mid 70s – with a style that clearly lays the blueprint for his collaborations to Throbbing Gristle! Yet without any vocals or other noise, you can really hear the Carter ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fontana (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
A great overview of one of the greatest 60s groups to ever record on the UK scene – the legendary Walker Brothers, who then spun off Scott Walker as a solo act – then reformed briefly for a few more records in the 70s! Scott Walker's solo work has become the stuff of legend over the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1983. New Copy
A beautiful album of minimal, ambient sounds – a set that would be right at home in the world of Brian Eno's Obscure Music label – or maybe some of the chamber instrumental experiments of UK artists like Penguin Cafe Orchestra or Gavin Bryers! Like the former, there's an optimistic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch & Go, 1996. New Copy (reissue)
Ohio electro punk firebrands Brainiac's first and only full length album for Touch & Go! Hissing Prigs is a pretty remarkable and surprising creative leap from their first couple albums, bringing in more fuzzed out electronics without sacrificing the ferocious energy, blasts of guitar, or ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic/Vocalion (UK), 1971/1974. New Copy
A pair of albums from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Groovy Brit girl pop from Twinkle – a singer who shone briefly for a stretch in the 60s, which is when most folks know her songs – but who also recorded some more obscure material in the 70s – which gets included here on a nicely expanded set! Twinkle's got a style that's maybe a ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
Nicely nasty tunes from the generation that inspired the music of The Cramps – that massive underworld of 45rpm and 78rpm singles in the 50s and early 60s – recorded at a time when just about anything was fair game to capture in the studio! The styles here vary as much as the huge ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1968. New Copy
One of the weirdest albums of the 60s, and a surprisingly big hit for the legendary Tiny Tim – a character then know to TV audiences for his appearances on Laugh-In and other shows – but an artist who sounds surprisingly culture-counter all these years later! The album's got some ... CD

Dead Moon

Defiance
Mississippi, 1990. New Copy
Dead Moon's third album – bursting into the 90s with Defiance – a record that arrived when some fellow Pacific Northwest underground rockers were getting ready to be flung head first into the mainstream, but DM remained defiantly underground! Even though this third album, they were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mississippi, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Raw sounds from the American underground – a great set of twang-heavy tracks from obscure 45s – most of them with a unique blend of rock and country styles! There's lots of the spirit here of Johnny Burnette – and a few artists actually seem to pay him tribute with their work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur Russell

World Of Echo
Audika, 1986. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
An incredibly beautiful set of work from Arthur Russell – one of the few records to be issued under his own name during his tragically short life – and a hauntingly spare blend of vocals, hand percussion, and solo cello – recorded with more than enough echo to live up to the title! ... LP, Vinyl record album

McPhee

McPhee
Sommor (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An Australian group from the start of the 70s – one with a very striking female lead singer named Faye Lewis, who works with a range and power that rivals the young Grace Slick at her best – moving through a sweet blend of fuzz guitar and keyboards with a mighty sharp sound! The group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Principal Edwards

Round One (with bonus tracks)
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1974. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
An obscure later album from the theatrical Principal Edwards group – one that still has all the mystical flourishes of earlier work, but which also refines the sound into a more straight ahead vibe. The band's still got a great fascination with interesting time changes and rhythms – ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
The complete recordings of The Stormsville Shakers and Circus – both groups fronted by excellent vocalist Phillip Goodhand-Tait – a singer who's got this soulful undercurrent that almost reminds us of Paul Weller in The Jam! Phillip's clearly a fan of American soul, but doesn't just ... CD
Columbia/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Groovy sounds from 60s Sweden – one of that scene's most happening bands at the time, and a combo who should have broke bigger on the global scene – given that all their lyrics are in English! The collection brings together singles and album tracks The Shanes recorded for Columbia over ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Early Brit beat work from Buddy Britten & The Regents – a group with a very Buddy Holly look on the cover of the set, and a sound that definitely lives up to that image too! There's a nice jangle to most of the guitar lines here – kind of that early Merseybeat mode that was so ... CD

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

Ginger Baker & Salt

Live In Munich 1972
Voiceprint (UK), 1972. New Copy 2CD
Amazing stuff from Ginger Baker's personal archives – live recordings with his Salt group – born of his relocation to Nigeria and a wonderful, dexterous fusion of jazz & rock percussion with African rhythms! The sound is pretty great on these 2 CDs, and the performances are truly ... CD
Purple Lantern, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Hypnotic and droning psychedelia, and more raucous and driving tunes from the end of the 60s & start of the 70s – the common connective tissue being the sitar – psych mind benders and groovy pop with a the swirling sitar sound! Some of the tunes are centrally focused around the ... CD

Nostradamos

Nostradamos
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1972. New Copy
The only record from Greek psychedelic folk combo Nostradamos – with a gleefully diverse sound augmented by impeccable female/male lead and harmony vocals – and tunes that run the gamut from delicate, classical bits to lumbering proggy heaviness! The vocals really keep the disparate ... CD
Dovetail/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1974. New Copy
A dreamy batch of inspirational psychedelic folk from 11:59 – a band name that suggests impending doom and a sound that's the opposite – a dreamlike and celebratory reading of psalms – tripped out by nature sounds and effects! The sound soars from a base of choral vocals, not ... CD

Little Boy Blues

In The Woodland Of Weir
Mercury/Acid Symposium (Greece), 1968. New Copy
The complete works of 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 ... 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

3 Hur-El

Hurel Arsivi
Diskotur/World Psychedelia, Early 70s. New Copy
Trippy rock from the three Hurel brothers of Turkey – a fuzzed-up, freaked-out trio that comes off with some great psychedelic touches! The sound here is a great blending of modes – similar to some of the other Turkish rock from the time that merged electric guitar with folkloric ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy
CD...$3.99 14.99
Glittering sunshine pop throughout! MC Squared has a name that may sound like a weak late 80s crossover rapper, but the group's a killer harmony act from late 60s Reprise Records – produced to perfection by Lenny Waronoker, and given the same mix of tight studio and hip undercurrents that ... CD

Takehisa Kosugi

Catch-Wave
World Psychedelia, 1975. New Copy
Mindblowing avant work from Takehisa Kosugi – an artist most folks known as a founder of The Taj Mahal Travelers, but who here emerges as an electronic experimentalist – with a style to rival some of the best records of the Italian scene of the 70s! The album features improvised lines ... CD

Calvin Cool & The Surf Knobs

Surfer's Beat
Acid Symposium (Greece), Early 60s. New Copy
Obscure and pulpy surf rock instrumentals with some surprisingly searing guitar sound from Calvin Cool & The Surf Knobs – with a bigger sound than the typical period exploitation quickie! Surfer's Beat is heavy with bleating sax, piano, organ and hard hitting drums underneath the guitars. ... CD

San Ul Lim

3
World Psychedelia (Korea), Mid 70s. New Copy
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 ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy
Some of the most enigmatic pop recorded for the Cherry Red label in the early 80s – all by artists who never really put out full LPs, and who are collected here in one great set of rarities! The set's got a mumber of great tracks by Jane & Barton – featuring singer Jane, an ex-membe ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one ... 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
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
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
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
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
Rare Earth/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Heavy rock and heavy drums – a fuzzed out classic that's one of the best lost hard rock albums of the 70s! These guys may have been a strange choice for Motown's rock-based Rare Earth label back in the day, but they've more than made a place for themselves in the history books – thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Wax Trax, 1980s/1990s. New Copy
A great little companion to the excellent film about the famous Wax Trax record store and record label – a set that brings together rare and unreleased material from some of the artists who made the company legendary back in the day! The album's the first in many years to bear the Wax Trax ... 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

Galactic Explorers

Epitaph For Venus
Mental Experience (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Wonderfully free-wheeling sounds from this hip German trio – maybe not one of the biggest groups of the Krautrock generation, but one who definitely earn their name with the music on this album! The set's got a long-spun approach to the tunes, which are all quite long – layers of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Animal/Caroline, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A pivotal album from Iggy Pop – a set that's done with lots of fuzzy guitar production from Chris Stein, in a way that shows plenty of his influence on the music – but with a feel that's plenty Iggy overall! The record represents a strong bridge between the Bowie-produced years and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fire Escape

Psychotic Reaction
GNP/Bolt-on (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A searing set of west coast psych from a very mysterious group – served up here on a record that was done as a bit of exploitation vinyl at the time, but which has gone on to achieve legendary status over the years! The set's got a raw, ragged energy right from the start – every bit as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1977. New Copy 3CD
A really great look at a key year in British punk – a time when the music really broke open, and artists from a wide range of scenes began to make music in a punk rock vein! The set has way more variety than you might expect – not just the big names and new acts that were helping ... CD
Verve, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest records of the 60s – and a sublime debut from Nico, sounding fresher and less dreary here than on many of her later sides – although still pretty chilling overall! The record features larger orchestral backings on most tracks – never too heavy, but with light ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic little collection – and one that's maybe a lot more fun than you might expect! There's little material that's actually avant, and just a few that might fall into the more boring sides of the art rock spectrum – and instead, the set brings together work from the psych and ... CD
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic fifth album from Procol Harum – one that really demonstrates the ever-changing energy of the group, and the way they seemed to find a fresh new focus with each of their early albums! The vocals of Gary Brooker are even more wonderful than ever – rejoined here with the ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
Three full albums of romping organ work from Wynder K Frog – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Sunshine Superfrog – a record with a Donovan reference in the title, but a much more mod set overall – thanks to searing Hammond work from organist Mick Weaver, who was maybe ... CD
