Numero, 1960s. New Copy
A great little look not just at a small indie label of the 60s – but also that decade's larger underground music scene – served up here on a set of recordings done for the tiny Cleopatra label in New Jersey! There's definitely lots of those "wanna be hitmaker" cuts that can ... CD
Numero, 1960s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great little look not just at a small indie label of the 60s – but also that decade's larger underground music scene – served up here on a set of recordings done for the tiny Cleopatra label in New Jersey! There's definitely lots of those "wanna be hitmaker" cuts that can ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tinderbox (180 gram pressing)
Polydor (Germany), 1986. New Copy (reissue)
A pivotal album from Siouxie & The Banshees – maybe the first record they issued during a time when the artists they inspired started to break into the mainstream – which also maybe helped the group find a crossover fame they might never have expected at the start of the decade! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Juju (180 gram pressing)
Polydor (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastically dreamy little album from Siouxie & The Banshees – but one that also has a lot more edge than you might expect! These guys are really opening up in the post-punk years – still relatively stark, spare, and unadorned – but able to create all these shadows and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Join Hands (180 gram pressing)
Polydor (Germany), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A seminal album from the young Siouxie Sioux and her Banshees – a set that really breaks the singer away from the punk roots of her initial work, into this deeper, darker territory that would clearly inspire generations to come! There's still plenty of heavy guitar in the music, and no goth ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor (Germany), 1987. New Copy (reissue)
Siouxie & The Banshees pick up songs from a well-chosen array of other artists – including Roxy Music, Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan, Television, and Billie Holiday – almost moving into that reworking-of-classics style that This Mortal Coil was using at the time – even though Siouxie's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Legacy/Columbia, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A wealth of live solo Bob Dylan from the early to mid 60s – material that was once in the deepest darkest corners of Columbia's Dylan archives and have only scarcely seen any kind official release before now! Of course it's wonderful stuff, from the earnest early recordings from '62 and the ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
We're always happy to take a trip to Crampsville – as the journey means that we not only get to live within the world of Lux Interior and Poison Ivy, we also get to discover a huge amount of obscure singles from the glory days of the indie 45! The Cramps built their music on building blocks ... CD
Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Gryphon look like real Renaissance men on the cover – and they often sound that way, too – given that some of their instrumentation includes older woodwind instruments like the bassoon and crumhorn! Yet as the group grew, they also quickly picked up more electric elements too – ... CD
Chapter One/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Really compelling solo work from Roger James – a UK music industry figure who spent countless hours on session work in the 60s, then was able to cut this sole record as a leader for the Chapter One label at the start of the 70s! Roger's got an unusual approach here – a mode that's ... CD
Warner, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A limited 2LP set – one that's heavy on the more hard-edged tracks that appeared on the Warner labels in the 70s and 80s, especially Sire Records – with a few key bits from later years too! Titles include "Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely" by Husker Du, "Life During ... LP, Vinyl record album
Albert/BMG (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A mighty hefty collection of work from Australia's wonderful Easybeats – a group so great, they almost challenged the British Invasion of the 60s from their position in the Pacific! The set's got plenty of classics from the group, but also features a number of more obscure cuts too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Asylum/Anti, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A rawer, edgier Tom Waits starts to emerge on Blue Valentine – he's still the booze and smoky voiced ballad singer, but he's got a buzzing, electric edge and some bruised rhythms to match! It actually kicks of with soaring cinematic strings, opening his cover of "Somewhere" from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Titles include "First & Last & Always", "Marian (version)", "No Time To Cry", "Black Planet", "Walk away", "A Rock & A Hard Place", "Nine While Nine", "Logic", and "Some Kind Of Stranger". LP, Vinyl record album
Chunga's Revenge
Bizarre/Reprise, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the most jamming Zappa albums from the early days – a set that's still got some of Frank's complicated musical leanings in play – but which features interpretation by a smoking group who no doubt helped the great one reach a much larger audience! George Duke plays lots of organ ... LP, Vinyl record album
C89 (3CD set)
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 3CD
The British scene right at the cusp of the big time – tracks from a moment when the always-indie world of the C86 generation was just about to break into much wider territory, including a fair bit of crossover fame on this side of the Atlantic as well! The fuzzy touches of the Creation ... CD
Tiger Bay (UK), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The title's a perfect summation of the way that Tangerine Dream approached their music – and it also really describes what made them so unique at the time! Rather than try to push the boundaries of electronics with a sense of force or urgency, the trio of Edgar Froese, Klaus Schulze, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The landmark album from Hampton Grease Band – a group who were every bit as weird and wonderful as contemporaries like Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa – and who work here with a similar sense of wit and freeplay in their instrumentation! Given that the group originally had some blues ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ectotrophia
Numero, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Very cool sounds from a very unique singer – the under-discovered Happy Rhodes – a young artist who worked in virtual obscurity in upstate New York during the 80s, but who has a power and presence that should have made her huge on the international scene! Rhodes has this multi-octave ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1980. New Copy
A sweet set of power pop from Code Blue – a record that might not have changed the world at the time, but which stands as one of those gems from a time when punk had re-oriented more mainstream rock material towards a more stripped-down sound! The trio makes straightforward use of guitar, ... CD
953 West
Wooden Nickel/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy
The album's title is a reference to an address on the north side of Chicago – 953 West Belmont Ave – somewhat gritty at the time the album was recorded, now not too far from a giant Target discount store! Yet the address, the cover, and the overall presentation are a great example of ... CD
Warner, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Pure early genius from Alice Cooper – a set that might not have been as big of a hit as some of his other early 70s albums, but which also shows the singer to be very much at the top of his game! Some of the tracks here follow familiar Cooper territory – sinister, hard-rocking energy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Rhino, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Early work from the Alice Cooper band – working in a hard grooving, late 60s psych and garage rock informed sound, a couple years before the Bob Ezrin-produced, shock rock juggernaut – but still a nicely sinister Detroit rock & roll sound! Alice's sneering, snakelike vocals are ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M/Rhino, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The early 70s glam masterpiece from T Rex – setting the standard for the sounds to come – and pop landmark status aside, it's probably the best album Bolan, Mickey Finn and the group ever cut! On Electric Warrior, T Rex resurrects the primitive spirit of the seediest rock of their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Transformer
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Lou Reed's fantastic early solo LP – melding the aloof, plaintive vocal performance style he perfected with the Velvets and unbelievable sharp songwriting with the vamped up, fuzzed out guitars of Mick Ronson, some symphonic touches, and the guiding spirit of Ziggy Stardust era Bowie. This ... LP, Vinyl record album
Numero, 1970s. New Copy
An amazing little set that's as musically striking as its cover is visually stimulating – pulled together from rare 70s singles that bring forth a whole different side of the American underground than the singer/songwriter generation! These tracks are by young folks who are very much touched ... CD
Warner, 1968. New Copy
A very cool version of this classic album from the Grateful Dead – pressed up on a mighty trippy picture disc, and featuring the band's own mix from 1971! Titles include "That's It For The Other One", "New Potato Caboose", "Born Cross Eyed", "Alligator" ... LP, Vinyl record album
PDU/Tiger Bay (UK), 1970. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Pure genius from Tangerine Dream – a record that came out right at the start of the 70s, and immediately cemented the group's reputation as one of the most inventive electronic acts of the decade! The tracks are long and spacious here – very much in the territory of some of the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tapioca/Tiger Bay (UK), 1977. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Gong's not dead – and in fact, they sound better than ever in this great live set from 1977 – recorded on the Paris scene that was still plenty appreciative of their most trippy touches! The set's got the best aspects of the best Gong studio work – including lots of plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album
EMI/Real Gone, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
A great one from X-Ray Spex – one of the strongest of the first generation punks of the 70s – a group fronted by the amazing Poly Styrene, and blessed with some incredibly catchy tunes! There's a poppy playfulness to most of these tracks, underneath the fierce, full-on energy of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Dairies/Rotorelief (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Legendary early work from Nurse With Wound – one of the group's first few albums, done at a time when it was quite difficult to ever figure out where they were coming from! Steven Stapleton's clearly got a strong influence here from 20th Century avant composition modes, particularly tape-base ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 CDs
Cold wave completists, eat your heart out – because this incredible 4CD set is overflowing with early analogue electronic gems from the UK scene – served up in a really beautiful book-style package that's overflowing with notes to support the superb selection of tracks! The music here ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A great little collection done in the best "mondo" mode – which means that it brings together weird, raw tracks from the early years of rock and soul – and mixes them with some great spoken snippets from B-Movie films of the time! The approach is a bit of a variation on the ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
The Beatles at their most playful on one side, and most heart felt and ambitious on the other! This groovy picture disc version features the artwork from animated Yellow Submarine film from 1969. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bronson Recordings, 2018. New Copy
A special set put together to celebrate the BC studios in Brooklyn – the 35-year home of producer Martin Bisi – with work from members of groups that he helped record over the years – including artists from Sonic Youth, Swans, Foetus/JG Thirlwell, Pop1280, Live Skull, White Hills, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Minky, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Lots of great things were happening in the East LA music scene of the late 60s – where a love of harmony soul, garage rock, and other styles were able to cross big musical boundaries – thanks to a love of both the listeners and the artists who helped create such a vibrant musical ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rolled Gold
Guerssen (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy
Really fantastic sounds from The Action – a set that maybe has them stepping a bit from mod to psych, but still with all the catchier elements of their earlier work! There's a very open-minded set of production going on here – a bit like the shift that Small Faces took with Ogden's Nut ... LP, Vinyl record album
Super Fuji Discs/Trans (Japan), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD
The first three albums of Japanese noise legends Ruins, all presented in a single set – sounds that are as powerful and mindblowing as when they were first unleashed to the world back in the 80s! The style here is still completely revolutionary – even though so many others have tried ... CD
Weird Love
Big Time/Numero, 1986. New Copy (reissue)
Aussie punk trailblazers The Scientists near the end of their run in the mid 80s and ready to go out in a fuzz-drenched blaze of glory! The Scientists always sounded like something out of only their own little subsect of the space time continuum, but this really doesn't sound like something out of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Rare treasures from the mid 60s British beat scene – filled with raw rhythms and the tightest of harmonies – impeccable stuff from the personal archives legendary producer Shel Talmy! This set includes tunes in a similar orbit for sure, but Planet Beat is big one, not some little moon ... CD
Twin Tone/Varese, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Not an original full length album from Pere Ubu, but a set that's as crucial to their catalog as any of the first few records – as it brings together all their important early 7" singles, including titles issued on the Hearthan label, and some UK releases on Rough Trade and Chrysalis! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Orfeon (Mexico), 1978. New Copy
Wow! A rare late 70s spacey rock record from Fongus – their hard grooving Guadalajara Rock! It starts off on a fuzzed out, heavy and riveting tip with the thick slab of a set opener ("Tripeando"), but from there it gets diversely rocking. There' some spindly, psych blues acoustic ... CD
Polydor/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
The title certainly gets it right – as the album definitely brings a bit of jazz into the mix for the great John Mayall – given that the set features strong work from funky jazz heavyweights Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Freddy Robinson on guitar! Both are musicians that we love for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smash/Elemental (Spain), 1966. New Copy
A seminal album from the mighty Walker Brothers – the group that featured the young Scott Walker before he leapt out onto his legendary solo career! The style here is a bit different than Scott's solo work – or maybe like his first two albums, a bit – a mix of Brill Building pop ... CD
KI-Motion
Columbia/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
One of the first projects from Japanese musical legend Midori Takada – working here with the MKWJU Ensemble, but with sounds that are very similar to most of her later solo work! As with those records, there's an approach here that seeks to fuse the acoustic with the electric, the organic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ajna Offensive, 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Very wild work from the enigmatic Bobby Beausoleil – a set that has the underground talent taking on songs by Eden Ahbez and Screamin Jay Hawkins – as well as turning out plenty of unusual tunes of his own! The music is very moody, and full of dark corners and currents – almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
154
Warner/Pink Flag, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Here's the one where it all goes crazy – where Wire move beyond the short, sharp shock of their earliest material – and almost lay the blueprint for the whole post-punk generation in the process! The ideas and sounds are every bit as sharp as before, but they're mixed with a moody ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern Harmonic, Mid 70s. New Copy
Alan Munson might look like some sort of tough biker on the cover, but the music within is surprisingly sensitive – really well-penned singer/songwriter material, done with a style that's personal, and also quite unique! There's a vibe here that almost reminds us more of an artist of this ... LP, Vinyl record album
