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


Vogue/Sundazed, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic pop from The Matchmakers – a group who only went by that name on some of their records – as they were more of a studio project from UK producers Mark Wirtz and Kris Ife, and also issued work as The Guards, Fickle Finger, Krimson Kake, Happy Confusion, Cellophane Mop, Father's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
A great look at the Michigan scene before things broke big on labels like Elektra and Columbia – rare early recordings from the A Square label – some of them never issued at the time, and together a perfect portrait of that amazing new sound that was coming from Detroit, Ann Arbor, and ... CD
Red Star/BMG, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire/Rhino, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The third Ramones album, one that a sizeable chuck of the most zealous fans believes to be their very best – and they might be right! As rightfully heralded as the self-titled debut is for being the trailblazing blast and unimpeachable punk rock epiphany that it is, The Ramones really their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A massive live set from Hawkwind – recorded early in the group's career, at a time when they were maybe at their space rock height – playing a concert gig as part of a special party in the UK! There's a really sinister vibe to the tracks – maybe because of the live setting, which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/Fiction, 1996. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Robert Smith and the group are still going strong here – changing up some of the rhythms a bit for the 90s generation, but still holding on to all of their best charms – and really hitting that tuneful crossover mode that made them so huge the decade before! Tracks include "Trap&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty/LMLR, 1968. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A record that's early in the career of Canned Heat, but one that already has the group exploding past their roots – stretching out in a double-length set that takes the combo way past any sort of standard blues rock modes! Some folks love the record for the classic "Going Up The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red/Modern Harmonic, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A really strange little record from the glory days of Cherry Red Records – and a set that's very different than you might expect from the high-end fashion look of the cover! The group have a mix of punk and reggae elements – usually nice and lean, with the bass as upfront in the mix as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, 1972. New Copy
A set that's a bit different than the first volume in this series of rare material from the Rory Gallagher archives – still an unreleased batch of material, recorded by a Cleveland radio station in 1972 – but featuring Rory with his full band, and not playing solo acoustic! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swan/Sundazed, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A wonderful collection of work from Swan Records – the legendary Philly indie who was one of the city's first great sources of rock, pop, and soul – presented here in a special focus on female artists who recorded for the label! The package has some very well-chosen cuts – as a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Friday Music, Late 60s. New Copy
Titles include the beautiful "Riu Chiu" – a traditional Christmas tune from the group's TV show – plus "Circle Sky (live)", "Seeger's Theme", "Michigan Blackhawk", "Hold On Girl", "Mr Webster", "Do Not Ask For Love", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Friday Music, Late 60s. New Copy
Lots of unusual tracks – including "My Share Of The Sidewalk", "Party", "Carlisle Wheeling", "I Don't Think You Know Me", "Teeny Tiny Gnome", "Nine Times Blue", "Lady's Baby", "War Games", "Storybook Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Friday Music, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Pye/BMG, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
An album that maybe marked the close of one chapter of The Kinks, and the start of another – music that still holds on to some of the best elements of their late 60s Village Green era, but which also moves the group into some of the headier territory of their Muswell Hill/RCA years too! Ray ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hoodoo Fushimi

Kenka Oyaji
180g (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)
Pretty great work from Hoodoo Fushimi – a one-man show who provides plenty of hip hop-inspired beats, breaks, and keyboard lines – served up on assortment of instruments recorded in his own home studio in the 80s! To say that the record is straight hip hop might be a stretch – as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic little set that heralds the beginning of a whole new generation in music – post-psych sounds from the year of 1969 – a time when the revolution had cooled a bit, but new waves of creative activity were really bubbling underground in the UK scene – as all these many ... CD
Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Killer work from The Flamin Groovies – a group who were already a bit out of time at their start, and who continue that approach here during the late 70s punk years – but at a way that maybe makes them stand out even more than before! The set's got a style that mixes rock roots with ... LP, Vinyl record album

B-52s

Wild Planet
Warner/Rhino, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
They may look goofy on the cover, but the young B-52s are incredible here – working with this spare sense of power that almost makes us think that we didn't need most of what happened in rock and roll during the 70s – given the way these guys can distill a mood or moment down to just a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Southern Lord/Orchard, 1984. New Copy Gatefold
Heavy hardcore from a younger William Duvall's Neon Christ – a set that features their original 7" single, plus later sessions from the same year, recorded on Labor Day in 1984! Titles include "Parental Suppression", "The Draft Song", "Bad Influence", " ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor/Geffen, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD
An incredible album – and one of the most revolutionary rock albums of the late 60s! The Who recorded this one as a tribute to mainstream radio at the time – linking together some solid stand alone tunes with shorter, wittier tracks that were recorded as commercials for products that ... CD
BMG, Early 70s. New Copy
... LP, Vinyl record album
Roundtable (Australia), Late 70s. New Copy
Never-issued material from Australian experimentalist Steve Maxwell Von Braund – best known for his work in the space rock band Cybotron, and working here in relatively similar territory on tracks from a host of lost tapes from the late 70s! Steve plays Arp, Mini Korg, and other keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album
ORG, 2021. New Copy (pic cover)
... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Scott Walker/Jacques Brel

Scott Walker Meets Jacques Brel
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 19.99
A really great collection of work – one that shows the strong influence of Belgian songwriting genius on the music of Scott Walker! Scott emerged from the poppy Walker Brothers with a series of albums in the late 60s – records that are now well-respected classics that showed a much ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, Late 60s. New Copy 3LP
Rare and unheard material from Dylan's career redefining Nashville era – his post Blonde On Blonde Nashville era to be more specific – when he recorded the poetic story song masterpiece John Wesley Harding, the charming country folk classic Nashville Skyline, sessions that would end up ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rare Earth/Culture Factory, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
One of the rarest albums from Rare Earth – and one of the funkiest, too – an obscure soundtrack release from the end of the 60s, and a set that maybe has the group taking off in wilder directions than some of their other records of the time! Some tracks are nice and long, and the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Privilege

Privilege
T Neck/Survival Research (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic bit of tripped-out rock from the end of the 60s – issued on the Isley Brothers' own record label, and featuring a group who previously recorded as the Soul Survivors blue-eyed combo from Philly! There's plenty of fuzz going on here – raw guitar that shows plenty of Hendrix ... LP, Vinyl record album

Neil Young

Homegrown
Reprise, 1974. New Copy
A never-issued album from Neil Young – recorded during a key 70s stretch, and finally out of the can after decades of being locked away in the vaults! At the time, Neil didn't think the record was as strong as some of his other work – but to us, fans of the man's music, the whole thing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mute, 1975. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
A great addition to the 70s catalog of the legendary Can – a set of live recordings made in Stuttgart in 1975, all of which have the group working in this wonderfully long-jamming style! Tracks are long, and maybe even more proggy than the group's studio work of the time – an all-instru ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/Esoteric (UK), 1976. New Copy 2CD
A really beautiful solo album from Jon Anderson – best known as the lead singer of Yes, stepping out here with a set that matches the solo projects of Chris Squire and Steve Howe from the same time! Yet unlike those efforts, this one is truly a solo recording – as Anderson not only ... CD
Big Beat/Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 4CDs
Heaven is right – as this 4CD set is our idea of the afterlife! The package brings together a wealth of rare work by the Zombies – not only new versions of tunes from their legendary Odyssey and Oracle, but also rare "lost" late tracks (recorded before the band split up and ... CD
RCA/Parlophone, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
The second half of Bowie's Thin White Duke years in the studio – a record that's more cool and condensed than his Young American album – but equally sublime in its own sort of way! The format here is much more compact – with a small group working alongside Bowie, still with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI/Astralwerks, 2003. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A return to genius for one of the most important bands of the past 50 years – and a wonderful little record that we'd rank right up there with the best of their albums from the 70s! The album builds off the "Tour De France" single the group first recorded back in the early 80s ... LP, Vinyl record album

B-52s

B-52s
Warner/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A hell of a debut from The B-52s – and a record that's become surprisingly timeless over the years, despite a retro-styled approach by the group! These guys aren't the silly group of later years here – and instead, they've got this moody darkness that's wonderful – a re-envisioned ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1986. New Copy (reissue)
A mid-80s gem from Krafwerk – a record that almost caught the world by a bit of surprise, and which showed that the four robotic guys from Germany were alive and well! The influence of Kraftwerk on the sound of early 80s music is undeniable – from rock to soul to hip hop – yet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
It's definitely a computer world when you're inside the mind of Kraftwerk – the machine made man, given a wonderful showcase here for the new decade! The sound is maybe a bit leaner and even more electronic than before – with the introduction of some digital elements, and a mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A groundbreaking record from Kraftwerk – a set that unified the 70s worlds of analogue electronics and prog rock – yet somehow managed to set the scene for a whole new sound to come! The album's a treasure all the way through – slow-building, and with beautiful bubbling moments ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pylon

Gyrate
DB Recs/New West, 1980. New Copy
Overlooked genius from the scene in Athens, GA – served up by a group who also borrow plenty of influences from the UK post-punk world too! Pylon are heavy on bass that might be borrowed from Young Marble Giants, but then turned up in sound and speed – matched with these great guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drag City/Galactic Zoo Disk, 1973. New Copy
Aurora, Illinois may never have given the world that much – but now the city can rightfully claim its place in the rock and roll cosmos – as the home of this fantastic early 70s album from Stump Water! The group have a sound that's a lot sweeter than their name – and are a trio, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD
Writer Jon Savage is maybe best known for his work on the early years of punk in England – and here, Savage steps back just a bit – to contextualize the rise of the new music in all sorts of other styles that were bubbling up in the mid 70s! Part of the set is a pathway to punk – ... CD
Drag City, 1975. New Copy
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace/Big Beat (UK), Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
That's the great Cheap Trick on the cover – an image that gives you a very good idea of what you'll find inside – the kind of cool, catchy tunes that group mastered in the 70s – served up here by a really surprising range of artists from later years too! The "power pop" ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A really great take on the music of Donovan – not his own groovy songs of the 60s, but a whole host of others taking up his tunes and moving it into some really great new dimensions! We love Donovan to death, and while we'll never tire of the man's own recordings of his tunes, we're always ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy
A wide-ranging set, and one that really gets at the influence of the music of Lou Reed over the years – as the collection brings together songs penned by Reed from back in the day, but which continue to get new handling by a variety of artists in more recent decades! As some folks know, Lou ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Raw rockers in the best Stag O Lee tradition – but given an extra-special punch here, given that the music is all hand-picked by DJ Keb Darge! Years back, Darge was an expert on American funk of the 60s and 70s – but over the years, he's become an equally well-suited collector of rare ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Revolutionary music from the young Kris Kristofferson – tunes that really helped set the Nashville scene on fire at the end of the 60s, and which had a surprisingly strong effect on pop and soul as well! Kris was a songwriter long before he was a singer (or an actor!) – and his way ... CD
Warner, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of the first giant hits by the Grateful Dead – and a record that has the group tightening things up a bit more, and stepping into some of the country-tinged territory of The Byrds and Flying Burrito Brothers! Turns out, the move is a great one – as the songs come across with a real ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1969. New Copy
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wire

Pink Flag
EMI/Pink Flag, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
One of greatest of all British punk era records – released in '77 and one that transcends mid-to-late 70s punk cultural baggage better than just about any other – a real benchmark! Wire kept it short and sweet on Pink Flag – with 21 tracks in about 35 minutes – and it's as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A classic set from the Grateful Dead – and one that features the group mixing studio tracks with their rising fame as a must-see live act! The package features both concert and studio recordings, and there's a wonderfully optimistic, late 60s vibe to the whole thing – the group still ... LP, Vinyl record album
