Captured Tracks, Mid 80s. New Copy 2CDs
A great look at the farther reaches of the American underground scene in the mid 80s – years after punk and post-punk modes – and a portrait of a whole generation who rose up in their wake, but maybe made music that was something else entirely! 20 years hence, these guys might have ... CD

Feelies

Crazy Rhythms
Bar None, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
Crazy rhythms, joyous postpunk, frenetically catchy melodies – and to put it all simply, one of the best albums of its time! The jittery guitars by Glenn Mercer and Bill Million pretty much pave the way for indie rock guitar for the 2 decades to come, all of the oddball additional percussion ... LP, Vinyl record album
Svart (Finland), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Never-issued music from this legendary group – recorded by Finnish radio near the start of their career, and making for a fantastic addition to their classic catalog! Tasavallan Presidentti are even more full-on and jamming than on record – still with some of the shorter songs and ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Bad Brains

Bad Brains
Roir/ORG, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A hell of a record from one of the key groups who put the "hard" in the American hardcore scene – and a record that's so blisteringly intense, we still sometimes have to check to make sure we've got it on the right speed! Although Bad Brains may fly the flag of the Rastas, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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
Elektra/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
A great little package – three overlooked gems from Rhinoceros – all packaged together in a single box set! First up is their self-titled debut – the great first album from Rhinoceros – a group that's every bit as heavy as their name, and who really deserved much bigger ... CD
Victor/Lilith (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Really heady work from Brainticket – a Swiss trio, and one who serve up this masterpiece at a level that rivals the best Krautrock work of the time! There's a very heady quality to many of the tunes – not full-on jamming, but instead this really compelling use of instrumental elements ... 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
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
Parlophone (Germany), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
The first truly great David Bowie electric guitar album – an all-out, power-driven set of tracks played by a group that included Mick Ronson and Tony Visconti! Bowie's in prime pre-Ziggy mode here – ripping into tunes that blister with dark energy that are some of the first truly ... CD

Kennelmus

Folkstone Prism
Modern Harmonic, 1971. New Copy
A really great, really obscure album from the Phoenix scene at the start of the 70s – one of those underground records that's always touted by deep psych collectors – but a set that also has a lot more going on as well! Kennelmus aren't just some tripped-out guys exploring the range of ... CD
ORG, 2020. New Copy (pic cover)
A cool 45 dedicated to The Stooges – a remake of the cut "1970" from the Funhouse album – but done here with just bass and fuzz bass from Mike Watt – plus drums, voltage manipulated keyboards, and wah wah pedal on both bass and tenor from Larry Mullins! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Strike Under

One Eye/Damaged Goods
Wax Trax, 1980. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Two fantastic tracks from this important Chicago punk group – both recorded live on the city's WZRD radio station! "One Eye" has the group really stepping off from the sound of their better-known 12" EP on Wax Trax – slowing down the pace, picking up the bass, and mixing ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
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
Polydor/Geffen, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Satoshi Ashikawa

Still Way (Wave Notation 2)
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1982. New Copy
A beautiful example of the really special sort of instrumental record that was coming out of Japan in the early 80s – music that's spare and minimal, but quite different than any sort of similar projects from other parts of the globe! Satoshi Ashikawa creates sounds in ways that resonate ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donald Fagen

Nightfly
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
A bit of jazzy magic from Fagen – stepping out from the cover of Steely Dan after the Gaucho album, and sounding pretty darn great on his own! The record is almost nostalgic, going back to a 50s of Brubeck, abstract expressionism, and pre-Castro Havana – filled with images that are a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)

Release Of An Oath (maroon & white vinyl pressing)
Reprise/Real Gone, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's ... 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
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

Les Jaguars

Les Jaguars Vol 2
Disques Merite/Return To Analog (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A record with a sexy cover and a slinky sound to match – the rare second album from the cool French instrumental combo Les Jaguars – a 60s group who start in modes that resemble American surf guitar, but really take off into some great directions of their own! The style here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Guru Guru

UFO
Ohr/Cleopatra, 1970. New Copy
Early Krautrock hugeness from Guru Guru – their epic debut, and a record that was one of the key calling cards of the German scene at the start of the 70s! At first glance, the elements are familiar – but there's a few nice touches in the studio too – yet the real energy of the ... CD
Jackpot, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Vintage live material from Greg Sage and The Wipers – played with that special intensity that made them such a crucial link in the American underground scene of the 80s – even if they didn't always get their due until many years later! There's a sound here that's almost a bridge ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece of American punk rock – and arguably the greatest moment ever for the legendary Stiv Bators! The album's got an intensity that blows away most of the UK groups who were making waves in the punk scene at the time – a raw energy that's a closer link to the Stooges and MC5 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bad Brains

Bad Brains
Roir/ORG, 1981. New Copy
A hell of a record from one of the key groups who put the "hard" in the American hardcore scene – and a record that's so blisteringly intense, we still sometimes have to check to make sure we've got it on the right speed! Although Bad Brains may fly the flag of the Rastas, and ... CD
Ace (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic little collection – one that gets at a special side of the 70s European scene that wasn't quite prog, wasn't quite art rock, and wasn't quite experimental – but which definitely lay to the left of the mainstream during the decade and really helped set the tone for years to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Still one of THE standout records of the post-punk years – the simple but effective dub statement of three London ladies with decidedly left wing politics! The record's in a format that would later be copped by dozens of groups – one that mixes together post-punk and heavy dub – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Harvest/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A group so great and so groovy, they ended up having a huge influence on the early sound of hip hop – thanks to a wonderfully funky sound at the core of their progressive rock groove! Babe Ruth have this rhythmic impulse that's really amazing – a way of working bass, drums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The third album from Shocking Blue, in case you couldn't guess from the title – and a set that seems to have the group increasing their intensity at just about every level in their sound! The tunes are deeper and less pop-oriented than before – with stronger guitars, and increasingly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The second album from Traffic, and a set that forever cemented their legacy in the annals of modern music – a set that has Dave Mason returning to the group after a brief hiatus, and maybe helping the quartet find a tighter, rootsier sound overall! The approach here is nicely mixed – ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD
A huge amount of material from The Rockin Berries – one of the great almost-rans of the UK scene in the 60s – a group who should have stormed our shores during the British Invasion, but somehow got left off the boat! The group's got everything shared by all their best contemporaries ... CD
BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A trio of solo albums from David Clayton Thomas – packaged here with a bonus track too! First up is the self-titled Columbia set David Clayton Thomas – great early solo work the singer who'd rose to fame as part of Blood Sweat & Tears – stepping out here with a sound that's ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Leon Russell's a shaggy-haired legend, with one of the most distinct styles in 70s rock – but the singer was also a songwriter and key studio talent in the 60s – already a very big influence in American music, long before he got his time in the spotlight! Russell's always known for ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy 2CD
CD...$9.99 19.99
Two albums by Pamela Polland – one of which was never issued in the 70s! First up is the self-titled Pamela Polland – an obscure bit of 70s underground rock – the first solo album by Polland, who might be better known for her work in the psych-folk group Gentle Soul at the end of ... CD

Tim Hardin

Painted Head
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1972. New Copy
CD...$9.99 19.99
A sublime early 70 set of rustic-accented folk, soul & blues from Tim Hardin that's heavy on covers – with tunes penned by Willie Dixon, Randy Newman, and others – in a soulful rock mode that's just ragged enough to give it a loose charm unlike any of Hardin's earlier work! Tim's ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 19.99
A pair of early 70s albums from the mighty Alexis Korner – back to back in a single set! First up is Bootleg Him – a record with a strange mix of elements on the outside – a confusing title, a proggy-cover image – but one that's got a sound that's a perfect maturation of ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1970s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 19.99
Peter Ivers's entire output for Warner Brothers in the mid 70s – including the original LPs Terminal Love & Peter Ivers, plus the Nirvana Peter compilation, which didn't appear until the mid 80s and STILL sounded ahead of its time – in a complete 2CD set! Peter has a distinctive ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
CD...$8.99 19.99
Four classic albums from The Routers – one of those unusual 60s groups who never really existed as a real band – but whose name was used to sell some very groovy records at the time! The Routers came from the same production talents who handled The Markettes – who also made some ... CD
Cotillion/Wounded Bird, 1970/1971. New Copy
CD...$6.99 13.99
Two Cotillion classics from Screaming Lord Sutch – back to back on a single CD! First up is Lord Sutch & Heavy Friends – an album that's almost equally well-known for its work by a host of famous guests – including Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and others! Page is ... CD
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
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy
A record that's a bit of an anomaly, given that it was created in the time of Covid – as the Gorillaz work here with a whole host of guest stars – in the kind of musical party that most local authorities would shut down! Yet given the virtual nature of the group – the core of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love/Svart (Finland), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Fantastic sounds from Wigwam – a group who never fully got their due on this side of the Atlantic during the 70s, but who were easily one of the best progressive acts on the European scene! This album features the core quartet augmented with some great help from key Finnish jazz musicians ... 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
Atlantic, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An incredibly lovely record from Kraftwerk – fashioned along the same suite-like style as Radio Activity, and served up with some haunting and charming tunes throughout! The electronics are quite spare, yet very thoughtful – never a note out of place, as the quartet build their careful ... 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

Tasavallan Presidentti

Tasavallan Presidentti 2
EMI/Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy
A hell of a second set from Tasavallan Presidentti – one of the coolest groups in Finland at the start of the 70s, and a combo that shows just how closely that scene's prog and jazz worlds were tied together at the time! The music is equal parts rock and jazz, but with a freewheeling vibe ... CD
