Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 2020. New Copy
A beautiful contemporary album that follows the same spirit of the vintage Selbsportrait records by Roedelius – and one that uses the same sort of vintage instrumentation too – given that the master of spare musical space works here on Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, Roland and Korg keyboards! ... CD
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 2020. New Copy
A beautiful contemporary album that follows the same spirit of the vintage Selbsportrait records by Roedelius – and one that uses the same sort of vintage instrumentation too – given that the master of spare musical space works here on Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, Roland and Korg keyboards! ... CD
Lysergic Sound, 1960s/1970s. New Copy
Sweeping psychedelia and heavenly hard rock from the late 60s through the 70s – a compilation of fuzzy and tripped out rock for Jesus! Some of the grooves our on the heavier or more lumbering side, others are more cleanly grooving, but are similar in devotion and for their breaking boundries ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A beautiful treasure from the legendary Nick Drake – the last album he ever recorded – and a set that may well be his most personal as well! The sound here is even more stripped-down than before – often just vocals and acoustic guitar, but used together in ways that are really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bikini Kill

Bikini Kill
Bikini Kill, 1992. New Copy
A seminal moment from the Seattle scene – and an important grrl power record too! The whole thing's wonderfully noisy and punky at the same time – cleaner and more upfront than any grunge record, but with enough sonic appeal to help these guys cross over – thanks in part to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The Band's surprising step back to their roadhouse roots – paying homage to early rock and rhythm & blues the grew up on, and honed their chops on when in their years as The Hawks! Moondog Matinee features a few great covers that split the difference between the raucous energy of their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A tremendous album from The Beau Brummels – one of the lesser-remembered groups from the late 60s Warner hipster heyday! At some level, the group's a folk-rock outfit – with the left-of-center feel of some of Fred Neil's best work for Capitol, and a similar blend of east coast honesty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Liz Phair

Whip-Smart
Capitol/Matador, 1994. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Liz Phair's excellent second album, and as overshadowed as it is by the massive legacy of Exile In Guyville, that's really the worse thing we can say about it – it's hard to follow-up one of the most vital debuts in latter day rock & roll history! Still relatively raw production-wise, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Future Days, 1967. New Copy
A lost treasure for any fan of Tim Buckley – material from two different sessions recorded in 1967, both of which include a few songs that never appeared elsewhere! As the title implies, the recordings here are acoustic – mostly with guitar and Buckley's vocals very much upfront in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Scott Walker/Jacques Brel

Scott Walker Meets Jacques Brel
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
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
Better Days/We Want Sounds (France), 1978. New Copy
An early moment of genius from Ryuichi Sakamoto – the solo start of a fantastic legacy of electronic music, and a record that's still one of our real go-to discs from his mighty large catalog! The record is a great break from some other, earlier modes of Japanese experimentation – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Great tracks from the early years of the synthesizer in British music – or at least the early years of the form in mainstream styles – and not some of the colder, more academic modes of the past! Yet the music also mostly predates the big Brit electro pop explosion that would come ... CD
Dot/Modern Harmonic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A tremendously beautiful album from vocalist Nancy Priddy – the kind of record that got buried in the record bins of the 60s, but which is finally getting the attention it deserves! Nancy had a career that started out in folk (she was once a member of The Bitter End Singers), but she's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Organisation (Kraftwerk)

Tone Float (with bonus track)
Innerspace (UK), 1970. New Copy
A rare early chapter in the career of Kraftwerk – an obscure album issued only in the UK, and one that features the duo of Ralf and Florian augmented by three other players! The sound here is heavily instrumental, and very experimental – almost in the mode of some of the more ... CD

Kim Jung Mi

Now
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy
A folk funk masterpiece from Korea – sung with breathy brilliance by female singer Kim Jung Mi, and featuring some great fuzzy backgrounds from guitarist Shin Jung Hyun! Although not in English, the record has a very similar feel to some of the hippest British female work of the same period ... CD

Umbra

Umbra
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from a Colorado trio who only existed for a few short years at the start of the 70s – and worked in this wicked blend of fuzz and freak, acid and heavy – all with a sound that's really incredible, given the homemade nature of these recordings! The tracks here aren't ... CD

Green

Green
GangGreen/Lion, Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)
A lost treasure from the mid 80s Chicago rock scene – the self-titled, self-released first record from Green – with ultra catchy power pop melodies and an excitability that's as infectious as anything that came out of the Chi and other midwestern cities at the time! Green has both a ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Colours

Colours
Dot/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1968. New Copy
One of the best American psyche albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going ... 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

Kim Jung Mi

Kim Jung Mi
World Psychedelia (Korea), 1974. New Copy
Groovy folk funk from mid 70s Korea – mad, pulpy tunes from Kim Jung Mi – possibly her best work ever! This wonderful self-titled set is a pretty deep left turn from her other material that we've been lucky enough to get our hands on – this one really goes deeper into the ... CD

Human Zoo

Human Zoo
Cicadelic, 1970. New Copy
Suburban LA psychedelia from the dawn of the 70s – the rare self-titled album from The Human Zoo! The Human Zoo started out as The Circus, eventually cutting this underappreciated album for Accent Records. Even in a freewheeling, anything goes era of Cali rock, The Human Zoo have a pretty ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1978. New Copy
An early moment of genius from Warren Zevon – the kind of record that really set his talents part from the singer/songwriter generation that came before – and made Zevon a key part of a new era of much darker songsmiths! Zevon manages to weave in all these strange moody elements while ... LP, Vinyl record album
ATO, 2019. New Copy 5LP
LP...$109.99 124.99
A mighty hefty set from the Dave Matthews Band – the kind of extended, long-jamming performance that has always made the group big favorites in a live setting! The package features ten full sides of music, two of which are side-long performances – "#41" and "Jimi ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire, 1979. New Copy 4CD & 2LP
Prime live material from the Ramones – recorded on the final night of 1977, right when the group was at the height of their power! If you ever got a chance to see The Ramones back in the day, the sound was really amazing – every bit as short, sharp, and focused as the studio records ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sonet/Grapefruit (UK), 1970s. New Copy 6CD
The lost legacy of Brett Marvin & The Thunderbirds – a group whose name might make them sound like slavish 50s rockers, but who actually have a fantastic amount blues energy at their core! The group began like many Brit acts of the 60s – trying hard to replicate the best styles of ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Really great material from Tony Joe White – a never-issued live album recorded during his early 70s stretch at Warner Brothers – done with a raw, stripped-down vibe that offers up an even grittier take on the territory of his early albums for Monument Records! The group is pretty small ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Universe (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A really fantastic group from the Dutch scene at the start of the 70s – a scene that didn't give the world as much progressive rock as other parts of the continent at the time – but one that also had a pretty darn great approach to jazz! Pugh's Palace work here in a way that really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
The greatest album ever by the Fall? We're always tempted to say so – because there's something here so perfect, so focused, it's hard to think of a better album to illustrate the genius of Mark E Smith! The rhythms are weirder, the lyrics more poetic, and the guitars a bit more razor sharp ... LP, Vinyl record album
Misawa Home/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Spare soundscapes from Japanese keyboardist Yutaka Hirose – mostly composed on a variety of electronic instruments, but with a vibe that's very natural and organic overall! The music is very slow-moving, and unfolds at a quiet pace – all definitely in the tradition of the best Ambient ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prime Movers Blues Band

Prime Movers Blues Band
Modern Harmonic, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A legendary Detroit group that's maybe best known for featuring early work from the young Jim Osterberg – later Iggy Pop – but a combo who's more than cooking on their own, with a searing sound that reminds us that blues-styled rock had a mighty strong power in the 60s! Combos like ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deram/Universal (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Caravan – one of the greatest groups to emerge from the jazzy Canterbury scene in the late 60s! The album's a wonderful blend of jazz roots and more focused rock impulses – and has some subtle funky elements that's given it a wider sort of audience ... 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

BGM (Takayuki Shiraishi)

Back Ground Music
Studio Mule (Germany), 1980. New Copy
A set that's hardly background at all – as the tracks here have a lively, forward sort of energy that reminds us of our favorite post-punk experiments from the British and German scenes at the start of the 70s – done with a darkness that really resonates with the album's cover image too! ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Akiko Yano

Japanese Girl
Midi/We Want Sounds (UK), 1976. New Copy
The debut album from Akiko Yano – and a set that's gotten more than a bit of acclaim over the years, in part because the group Little Feat back her on the first half of the record. Akiko sings in Japanese throughout, which sounds surprisingly great next to the rootsier sounds of Lowell ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/Slow Down Sounds, 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Expanded to include the Please Clap Your Hands EP! LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor (Italy), 1975. New Copy
Fantastic spacey sounds from Franco Falsini – a record that was originally created as the soundtrack for the film Cold Nose (Naso Freddo) – but which also really works as a link between the early 70s Italian prog scenes, and some of the more longform electric modes of the German scene! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tasavallan Presidentti

Live In Lambert Land
Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A never-issued live set from this fantastic Finnish prog combo – recorded around the same time as their classic Lambert Land album, and featuring many songs from that record – but served up here in a long-jamming style that really takes off with lots of improvisation on the solos! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Legacy, Late 60s. New Copy 3CDs
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 ... CD
Dawn/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD
Very unusual music from Fruupp – a group who issued these four albums on the always-unusual Dawn label – one of the most-trusted UK prog imprints of the early 70s! The sound of Fruupp is a bit hard to peg – as they're very proggy on their debut, but also clearly have a strong ear ... CD

Alice Island Band

Splendid Isolation
Warren/Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
One of the more obscure outings from the British underground folk scene at the start of the 70s – a set that's way way different than contemporary work on the bigger labels, and which sounds as if it was conceived and recorded a fair bit away from the mainstream! The instrumentation is a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/Duophonic, 1999. New Copy 3LPs (reissue)
Stereolab at the top of their game! They're riding high here with a mindblowing swirl of older elements from the past – with references to old Moog records, French pop, and a bazillion other things streaming through their ears – but also refined and given a bit more vision, too as the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Svart (Finland), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Not the funky European group of the same name from the 70s – but an even more obscure hard rock quartet from Buenos Aires – and one who perform here with a non-stop sound that's completely wonderful! These guys have clearly drunk deep of the Anglo world of hard rock – ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Real Gone, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
Klaus Nomi's standing here on the cover with the oversized cabaret costume he used famously backing David Bowie – but this early solo album definitely has the singer very much in his own territory overall! Some of the songs are a weird reworking of older European cabaret mode, or Brechtian ... 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
Out-Sider (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The sound of the Louisville scene long before the years of Squirrel Bait and Slint – a treasure trove of underground work, most of it previously unissued – all of which documents a searing scene of psych and garage experimentation! There's a tightness to these tracks that's really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A record that's hard to do justice in words – as it's so unusual, so individual, it still stands as one of the best moments of John Martyn's career! Sure, the guy came from folk music, and works here on acoustic guitar alongside his vocals – and sure, he was part of a groundbreaking, ... LP, Vinyl record album
