Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A much-needed look at the Japanese rock scene at the start of the 70s – one that was going through as many amazing changes as the world of music in the US and UK, but which has always been far out of reach for most listeners in the English-speaking world! The collection's not super-undergroun ... CD
Rough Trade/Sire, 1986. New Copy 5LP (reissue)
A triumphant third album from The Smiths – one that really focuses the energy of their previous sets, and helps them find a new sort of sonic perfection! Those haunting guitars are still in all the right places – as are Morrissey's heartfelt lyrics – but there's also a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1977. New Copy 4CD & DVD
1977 was an important musical year for many folks – but it was especially important for The Jam – as the group not only gave the world their first two records, and did a whole lot of other recording too! All those sounds are collected here – in a beautiful box set that brings ... CD
Rough Trade/Sire, 1986. New Copy 3CD & DVD
A triumphant third album from The Smiths – one that really focuses the energy of their previous sets, and helps them find a new sort of sonic perfection! Those haunting guitars are still in all the right places – as are Morrissey's heartfelt lyrics – but there's also a nice ... CD

Rough Trade/Sire, 1986. New Copy 2CD

Rhino/Warner, 1986. New Copy 2CD
It's been many years since The Replacements made their amazing music – but the genius of the group lives anew, thanks to the release of this tremendous live set from 1986! The group had moved from an indie label to Sire by the time of the show, but there's a searing intensity to most of the ... CD
Verve, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The genius of 70s Thin Lizzy – served up here in all its glory – really stretching out in a double-length live set with nary a dull moment at all! The production on the Thin Lizzy studio albums is always impeccable – and really works wonders with the guitars, and the vocals of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lion, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The Troyes look plenty young on the cover, but the Michigan quintet can really stand shoulder-to-shoulder with much older garage groups of their generation! The music here is another one of those "what ifs" from the mid 60s American hinterland – a group who were every bit as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Color Tapes/Lion, 1982. New Copy
A rare British set, originally issued only on cassette – which means that most copies of the album were lost to the hinterland of oxide decay! The set's got a sound that's way more immortal than its original format deserved – very much in the best mode of early Factory Records – ... CD
Euphoria
Heritage/Vinilisssimo, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Sweet sunshiney wonderfulness from an incredibly groovy group – a quartet of voices who are equally trained in folk and harmony modes, but who move into some even hipper territory on this record! The album was arranged by Joe Renzetti and produced by Jerry Ross – and it's got a nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise, 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Green Day as in command of killer hooks and stomping choruses as ever! Nimrod was bit underappreciated by longtime fans growing weary of Green Day's aging process towards the late 90s, but it's gota well earned and slowly built repuation as a fan favorite nowadays. With the formula of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Association Live
Warner/Varese, 1969. New Copy
Excellent live work by The Association – quite different than their earlier pop hits, but still with the same great harmony feel! The style here is in the rougher, more guitar-based mode of albums like Birthday and Stop Your Motor – and the band really sounds great in this live setting ... CD
Let's Play Two
Republic, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Pearl Jam live at Wrigley Field! Pearl Jam's growth from early 90s angsty, yet classic rock inspired semi-iconoclasts into one of the world's most epic arena rock institutions is pretty darn endearing anyway, but we've rarely heard a more joyful, passionate live Pearl Jam than what's here, culled ... LP, Vinyl record album
Project 3/Out-Sider (Spain), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Sublime soft psych from Rain – a warm and wonderful set originally issued on Project 3 Records at the start of the 70s! Like other work on the label, there's a nicely mellow feel to some of the cuts here – not as all-out dreamy as Free Design, but definitely a different quality than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy 3 LPs (reissue)
A mindblowing record from the Krautrock generation – especially when you consider that it was issued by the Philips label as a massive 3LP package, complete in a silver-toned, textured sleeve that also came with a real mirror attached to the front! The music is every bit as far-reaching as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
The final full album from the legendary Faces – a group who've got all their best elements sharply in focus here, in a way that really stands apart from the growing solo fame of Rod Stewart! Rod the god is still at the helm on vocals – and really sounds incredible – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Pre-shock rock psychedelia from Alice Cooper – more of a Detroit-reared answer to early Pink Floyd than it is a clue to the early metal horror show to come – and a record that stands stunningly well on its own! Since most people never even heard Pretties For You until long after Alice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Continental/Groovie/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Massively heavy sounds from A Bolha – a Brazilian group who were previously known as The Bubbles, and backed up Gal Costa during the Tropicalia years – but who work here in a fuzzy, bassy groove that's totally great – definitely an heir to the headier sounds of the UK scene at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
