Wah Wah (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
A totally weird solo project from Florian Fricke of Popol Vuh – and a set that's very much in keeping with the spirit of the title! There's an earthy, organic vibe to the whole thing – as the record features Fricke and a group of other singers doing these long, slow-building chants ... LP, Vinyl record album
Innovative Communication/Wah Wah (Spain), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe one of the most spiritual albums ever recorded by Popol Vuh – recorded with a huge choir on the first track, which really sets a lofty sound for the rest of the session! The music is a fantastic mix of earthy, organic elements and more heavenly sounds – served up by the core trio ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wah Wah (Spain), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A definite cerebral voyage from Didier Bocquet – who serves up a beautiful bit of analogue electronica on this rare 70s album! The set's a bit in the Sky Records territory of some of his German contemporaries – but is maybe a bit more freewheeling, too – as it certainly takes its ... LP, Vinyl record album
Red/Wah Wah (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
JB Banfi gets a big nod from Klaus Schulze on the back cover of this rare 70s set – and for good reason, too – as the music's very much in the best analogue electronic work that Schulze himself helped to pioneer at the time – even though Klaus claims that Banfi is an even better ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Harry Nilsson may be best-remembered for a hit that he sang penned by Fred Neill – but the man himself was a hell of a songwriter in the 60s – with an incredible approach to a tune that was unlike any of his contemporaries! Nilsson could be both sweet and nostalgic and slightly wry at ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Peggy March is a singer with a surprisingly varied career – an artist that most folks know for only her early little girl pop fame – but one who went onto record a very unusual range of sounds as the 60s moved on! RCA was her label, and while she never hit the heights of the charts ... CD
dBpm, 2017. New Copy
Jeff Tweedy together at last with just his own acoustic guitar, voice and occasional harmonica – doing songs from the classic Wilco canon plus comparable rarities from his Golden Smog and Loose Fur side projects – really casting these great songs in a wonderfully intimate light! If you'v ... LP, Vinyl record album
Einfluss
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
A beautiful collaboration between two different generations of German music – the legendary Hans Joachim Roedelius, whose albums of the 70s set a whole new standard for minimalism, both on his own, and with the group Cluster – and younger pianist Arnold Kasar, who turns out to be a ... CD
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy (pic cover)
Dion's looking pretty radical on the cover of this single – and he's sounding pretty radical, too – picking up an electrified folk rock vibe that's almost a bit like the turn that Bob Dylan was also taking in 1965! The change is no surprise, given that Dylan and Dion were both ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Together At Last
dBpm, 2017. New Copy
Jeff Tweedy together at last with just his own acoustic guitar, voice and occasional harmonica – doing songs from the classic Wilco canon plus comparable rarities from his Golden Smog and Loose Fur side projects – really casting these great songs in a wonderfully intimate light! If you'v ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
The female voice found a whole new way to flower in the world of folk music during the 60s – a style that helped women get past some of the more standard sultry modes of postwar pop, and hit the kind of righteous currents and deeper themes that helped transform a generation! The moment began ... CD
Carolanne Pegg
Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), 1973. New Copy
A really weird little record from British singer Carolanne Pegg – a vocalist who's clearly gotten her start in the same folksy generation as Sandy Denny or Madd Prior – but who also is going for a different sort of vibe here! In some ways, Pegg might be the lost link between the Brit ... CD
Mute, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
Can singles? Seems like a very strange thing, given that the group that kicked off the prog generation were noted for their extended album jams – but the format actually works surprisingly well, and actually lets you focus in even more on their genius! These tracks deliver a short, compact ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 1977/1978. New Copy
Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Parlophone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Idiot
RCA/Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Iggy's second solo LP proper, and a strange morass of junkie desperation and gutteral white punk funk – a conscious decision to move away from the guitar roar of the Stooges era and closer to the sounds his longtime champion David Bowie was experimenting with at the time, with a little bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lust For Life
RCA/Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Iggy Pop may have left The Stooges behind, but he's lost none of his edge – and really finds a new level of solo greatness on this sublime classic from the 70s! The set was produced by David Bowie, who also plays piano on the set – and has Carlos Alamar adding in some guitar – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wah Wah (Spain), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An album of music so trippy, it was originally marketed as "a new invention that gets you high with sound" when it was released in the 70s! And while we're not going to reveal whether or not the record had that effect on us, we can say that it's a wonderful lost relic of underground ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Pure genius from John Martyn – an artist who started out in folk music, and then opened up to jazzier and more electric styles in the 70s – but always with a quality that set him apart from most of his contemporaries! This beautiful package features Martyn at the core – early ... CD
CBS/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
You may not know the name of James Royal, but you'll definitely be calling it out after hearing this sweet little set – a long-overdue collection that finally brings attention to his great British recordings in the 60s! James was one of those excellent UK singers from the 60s who could ... CD
