Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
A very cool look at the freakiest years of the legendary Transatlantic Records label – an important British imprint that was essential to blues and folk in the late 60s, but which also released some much trippier material too! The music here is a frenetic blend of jazz, folk, prog, and some ... CD
Tummy Tapes, 1969. New Copy
Two very long, stretched-performances from the Velvet Underground – recorded on March 15, 1969 – and really showing the insane guitar work the group brought to their live shows! Side one features a version of "Heroin" with lots of instrumental improvisation – and side ... LP, Vinyl record album
Water Wing, 1978. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A rare punk singer from the Swiss scene – featuring work by Astrid Spring – who was later known for her work in the group Liliput! "Neon" has a very raw, stark vibe – right up there with the best of the UK scene at the time, with a very Rough Trade sort of vibe – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
RCA/Legacy, Early/Mid 50s. New Copy 3CD
A treasure trove of early Elvis recordings – a set the goes deeper into the nascent, pre-pop culture mania, and right into the heart and soul of "A Boy From Tupelo" who really had the voice and charisma of a king – mania, hype and a half century of merchandising be damned! ... CD
Columbia/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A dreamy little rock treat! The Millennium fit nicely on the bookshelf between The Free Design and the Beach Boys – and this debut album is the group's reigning masterpiece! The tracks are beautifully produced – with a landmark pop-sike sound that's loaded with Sunshine touches – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kapp/Sundazed, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Beautifully sweet and folksy work from Linda Perhacs – a singer with a heavenly voice, and a wonderful songwriting talent to match! The record's nicely free from the cliches of some of Linda's contemporaries – as it's got a gently flowing quality that never forces things too much ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rods N Ratfinks
Capitol/Sundazed, 1964. New Copy
An incredibly groovy record from the LA scene of the 60s – part of a trio of cool Capitol sets with cover art by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth – all put together by studio genius Gary Usher! The tunes here are all originals – jaunty numbers with a definite hot rod vibe, but with ... CD
Columbia/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the most incredible rock albums of all time – Dylan's sprawling, shambling, poetic genius at it's most revolutionary if you ask us – the landmark Blonde On Blonde! It's got that surrealistic, 4AM and still bursting with creativity kind of feeling that he'd never even try to find ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece of early electric Dylan – and one easily one of the most pivotal recordings of the 60s in any genre! featuring classics like "Subterranean Homesick Blues", "Maggie's Farm", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Gates Of Eden", "It's All Over Now, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smash/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The second album from The Left Banke – that most incredible group who managed to knockout a couple big hits, yet somehow got relegated to "cult" status – and this album is nearly as wonderful as Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina! This one might even be more impressive for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/Record Store Day, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The rare, long unreleased Television live album! Recorded at San Francisco's Old Waldorf in the summer of 1978, on the one-and-only US tour the band ever did as a headliner in their original 70s run, it's a revelatory and all too rare treasure. Television's well-known legacy as a mainstay in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deram/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Sweet jangle pop from Amen Corner – one of the sunniest UK groups of the late 60s! The group checked in big with their hit "Bend Me Shape Me" – and follow through here with an equally catchy, equally groovy set of tracks – tunes that really let them move past the ... CD
Fire (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)
The first great full length album from The Television Personalities – perfectly raw in production and perfectly sharp in barbed Brit poppish punk songs – a fanastic group the deserves mention in the same breath as more celebrated crossover groups from the era! The sound is far from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fire (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
The could have been bigger than the Beatles, but sadly they never came close – and instead, Television Personalities went on to become one of those great secrets from the British scene of the post-punk years – one of those groups that folks in the know always knew, which also includes a ... CD
Rain In My Life
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Bill LaBounty's got an odd sort of look on the cover – but then again, Bill LaBounty's always been one of the odder figures in AOR! The man's a great sort of songwriter, and can come across with a soulful slink that's maybe not what you'd expect from his image on the front – a quality ... CD
McKenna Mendelson Blues
Pacemaker Entertainment/Lion, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Late 60s work from Michael McKenna and Joe Mendleson – working here in a punchy, hard charging and fiery bluesy rock mode for the McKenna Mendelson Blues set! The group was fairly short lived, and otherwise known as Mainline – but this set puts the bluesy tendencies right out front, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy
The continuing genius of this really wonderful series – just about the only way you'll get to hear this wealth of work from the UK electro scene of the early 80s – most of which was only released on cassette at the time! These tracks follow strongly on the electronic sounds of scenes ... CD
Zapple/Secretly Canadian, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastically wild work from the team of Yoko Ono and John Lennon – a set in which Yoko very firmly pulls John into the world of Fluxus, experimentation – on a record that's more of an art piece than most of the other later releases by the pair! Side one is a live piece called "Cam ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Apple/Secretly Canadian, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Pretty wild work from Yoko Ono – a mixture of straight rock tunes and some very experimental numbers, a few of which sound so much like New York No Wave tunes from a decade later that we have to admit we're pretty darn shocked! In fact, we'd dare say the record's better than anything ... LP, Vinyl record album
