Glass Redux (UK), 1985. New Copy
The most obscure album from In Embrace – a group who were already a pretty darn obscure corner of the UK post-punk scene to begin with! The "group" is really Gary Knight – who works with various collaborators over the years – in a way that's got a nicely personal ... CD
Decca/Tiger Bay (UK), 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A really inventive album from the key years of the British psych scene – and a set that goes way beyond even the important experiments of the bigger names of the time! Clark Hutchinson is just a duo – Mick Hutchinson on guitars, piano, and lots of percussion – and Andy Clark on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lazy/Tiger Bay (UK), 1986/1987. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Early work from The Primitives – a selection of tracks from early singles they recorded for the Lazy label, before moving onto even bigger fame at a major label! We've always liked this work by the group the best – as it's nice and raw, with a good mix of muddy production, guitar fuzz, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Full Circle
Trio/Gronland (Germany), 1982. New Copy
A fantastic trio of talents – the mighty bassist and drummer from Can, joined by the suddenly-solo Jah Wobble from Public Image Limited – all in a set of grooves that brings out all the best of their talents! Given that Wobble already presents some beautifully heavy bass, Czukay ... CD
Warm
dBpm, 2018. New Copy
A truthfully titled solo effort Jeff Tweedy – a mostly acoustic set of songcraft from one of the most consistently strong songwriters and bandleaders in modern rock! Aside from his son Spencer on drums throughout, Jeff does most of the singing and playing himself, on songs that seem to be ... CD
Mississippi, Early 80s. New Copy
Really wonderful sounds from the enigmatic Space Lady – an artist who mostly performed on the streets of Boston and San Francisco in the 70s, but who also managed to make the handful of recordings featured in this set! The tunes are wonderfully spare, and surprisingly beautiful – often ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music From Memory (Netherlands), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2 CDs
Really cool sounds from the European underground of the 80s – mostly music that's quite far from the pop in the title, as much of it is quite understated, and comes from the farther reaches of the post-post-punk scene! These tracks aren't nearly as dark as the cold wave sounds of the same ... CD
Superior Viaduct, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
An early Fall live album and a fiery set that captures the coy, cynical genius of Mark E Smith and prime era of the band it's shambling best! At this early point, the Fall's studio recordings were pretty much live, too, but the presence of an audience makes all the difference – a tension and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pass The Distance
Mushroom/Antarctica Starts Here, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A beautifully fragile record cut by UK folkie Simon Finn – a singer with an incredibly distinct voice, recording here in an equally distinct musical setting! Finn's guitar and percussion are set in a trio with tabla, percussion, and dulcimer from Paul Burwell – and a lot of other ... LP, Vinyl record album
London/Abkco (Japan), 1968. New Copy 2 SACD & Flexidisc
One of the greatest albums ever from The Rolling Stones – a set that still draws on all the bluesy roots of their best 60s material, yet which also shows a sharper, nastier edge as well! The album shows the tremendous sense of focus and power the Stones had in this crucial late 60s stretch ... CD
Blood
4AD (UK), 1991. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The long-overdue third album from This Mortal Coil – one that came after something of a hiatus from the previous date – but which continued the group's great tradition of reworking old music for the future! As before, there's almost an ancient sense of sound at play here – not ... LP, Vinyl record album
Filigree & Shadow
4AD (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Tremendous work from This Mortal Coil – only the second album by the 4AD Records collective, but one that doubles the length of the first – and explores some even deeper territory in the process! The group take songs that had been forgotten from previous generations – beautiful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy 3CD
A stunning collection of work from Third Ear Band – a set that features their first album, a rare soundtrack, and lots of rare and unusual material too! The set begins with the self-titled Third Ear Band – the amazing debut of one of the most unique groups of the early prog years ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
An electronic pop masterpiece – and the first moment of international exposure for the mighty Yellow Magic Orchestra! Before this set, the trio of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono, and Yukihiro Takahashi had already been making plenty of waves on the Japanese music scene – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beat Rocket, 1967. New Copy
Early demos by Blue Cheer that find them as raw and incendiary as ever, but fully in control and ready for their moment! The lumbering rhythm and heavy drums always made the band a heavy blast, and there's a spacey groove to the guitars that'd tremendous, too. Even on these demos are a blast. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chrysalis/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy 3CD
A hugely expanded version of this record – with two and a half CD's worth of unreleased material! The core record is quite an unusual moment for Procol Harum – still riding strong here onto their ninth album as a group – but also bringing in the legendary production team of ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Psychedelia meets British pop – in a really special musical moment that's forever come to be known as shoegaze! The work here comes from a time when the UK scene was really moving past punk rock, and starting to let its guitarists open up in the kind of longer, fuzzy solos that were big in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Five Leaves Left
Island (UK), 1969. New Copy
Godlike work from the legendary Nick Drake – and exactly the kind of record that's made him a continuing legend over the years! The style is completely its own – not really folk or rock, but not really jazz either – yet served up with plenty of jazzy phrasing that's helped keep ... CD
Bryter Layter
Island (UK), 1970. New Copy
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 ... CD
Bearsville, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y-eah, this is one of best art rock albums of all time – the Eno produced full length debut of Devo – the caustic, sarcastic and fun soundtrack to society's devolution! There's nothing we don't love about Devo at this point, from their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch & Go, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
The last legendary album by Laughing Hyenas! On Hard Times they come back a half decade since their previous LP with more of a focus on the guttural blues vibe they'd always had on some level, and even a little bit of a Stones-y swagger, without discarding the caterwauling fury of the earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Life Of Crime
Touch & Go/Third Man, 1990. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best from garage-blues-noise rock pioneers Laughing Hyenas – a Touch & Go Records standout that flew well under the mainstream radar, but it prefigures the more incendiary early-to-mid 90s rock from the indies to the majors – a lot of more famous bands learned from this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Solid State Survivor
Alfa/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Tremendous work from this groundbreaking electro pop trio – a group who seem to compress all the best electric energy on both sides of the planet at the time – creating a leaner, catchier take on some of the hippest German modes, mixing them with their own quirky energy, and paving the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yellow Magic Orchestra (US version)
A&M/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
An electronic pop masterpiece – and the first moment of international exposure for the mighty Yellow Magic Orchestra! Before this set, the trio of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono, and Yukihiro Takahashi had already been making plenty of waves on the Japanese music scene – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy
The Holy Modal Rounders in all of their glory – weirder and even more hard to define than ever before – but maybe a bit more focused and tuneful than during the time that founders Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber spent in the Fugs! The group here also includes the young Sam Shepard ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy
A really deep look at the German underground in the early 80s – material by groups that are far more obscure than acts like Pyrolator, Der Plan, or Die Krupps – and it's not like any of those groups were big names either! The set features singles by groups who mostly circulated the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warm
dBpm, 2018. New Copy
A truthfully titled solo effort Jeff Tweedy – and a mostly acoustic set of songcraft from one of the most consistently strong songwriters and bandleaders in modern rock! Aside from his son Spencer on drums throughout, Jeff does most of the singing and playing himself, on songs that seem to be ... LP, Vinyl record album
Canaxis
Spoon/Gronland (Germany), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic early project from Holger Czukay – an early solo set, done during a time when Can were just getting started – and at a level that's years ahead of its time! Czukay uses lots of tapes and sound samples with his own basslines – crafting this pan-global landscape of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Canaxis
Spoon/Gronland (Germany), 1968. New Copy
A fantastic early project from Holger Czukay – an early solo set, done during a time when Can were just getting started – and at a level that's years ahead of its time! Czukay uses lots of tapes and sound samples with his own basslines – crafting this pan-global landscape of ... CD
HMV/333 Discs (Japan), 2018. New Copy
A really beautiful tribute to the Penguin Cafe Orchestra – that famous UK instrumental ensemble first started by Simon Jeffes in the late 70s! The group faded from most of the global eye at some point in the 80s, but continued to hold sway for Japanese audiences for many years more – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rough Trade/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy
Fantastic early work from The Fall – some key singles issued by the Rough Trade label as 45s during the first few years of the group – already a great showcase for the mad wit of Mark E Smith! While we love the albums from this time, these singles are maybe the songs we go back to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Acid Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
Genius work from the British scene of the 60s – a big box of rare tracks from that first mod movement in the UK – a time when the young sound of London burst forth in ways of soul, psych, garage, and R&B! This 60-track package brings together some of the most stunning tracks from ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), 1967. New Copy
The incredible debut of John Martyn – a set that's surprisingly spare and stripped-down compared to later work, but which already shows that genius that set Martyn apart from most of his contemporaries! The approach is similar to the style used with contemporaries Bert Jansch and John ... CD
Movies
EMI/Gronland (Germany), 1979. New Copy
Not a soundtrack album from Holger Czukay – despite what you might guess from the title – and instead a batch of nicely tuneful, often-catchy tracks that somewhat follow the style of late 70s work from Can! Not surprisingly, Holger's joined by group makes Jaki Liebezeit on drums, and ... CD
Full Circle
Trio/Gronland (Germany), 1982. New Copy
A fantastic trio of talents – the mighty bassist and drummer from Can, joined by the suddenly-solo Jah Wobble from Public Image Limited – all in a set of grooves that brings out all the best of their talents! Given that Wobble already presents some beautifully heavy bass, Czukay ... CD
Big Pink (Korea), 1971. New Copy
One of the more obscure groups from the TV rock era that gave the world The Monkees and Archies – and a group that may well be groovier than both! The Goggles have a style that's maybe more like Free Design overall, with touches of The Bugaloos – soft harmonies and warm themes – ... CD
Der Osten Ist Rot
Virgin/Gronland (Germany), 1984. New Copy (reissue)
A great solo moment from Holger Czukay – a set that really has him breaking from his music with Can – and really showing off some of the more playful sides of his personality! The songs are quirky and electronic, and remind us more of the German new wave than anything from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

EMI/Gronland (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)

Not surprisingly, Holger's joined by group makes Jaki Liebezeit on drums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca/Abkco, Mid 60s. New Copy
A wealth of wonderful work from Marianne Faithfull, all pulled from those key early years when she was part of the musical world of Andrew Loog Oldham and the Rolling Stones! Yet right from the start, despite the fact that she sang a few Stones songs on her own (and wrote a few for the group, too) ... CD
Lizard/Big Pink (Korea), 1970. New Copy
A rare rocker from Jamul – a group who are somewhere right on the cusp between blues rock and hard rock territory – working with equal amounts of both in this obscure debut! The record's a great illustration of the way that so many groups who grew up playing blues rock in bars during ... CD
Polydor/Big Pink (Korea), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
The only album we've ever seen from Gary Kuper – a rock solid singer/songwriter, with talents that should have made him huge – but who, like so many others who gave their best work to the bigger labels of the time, quickly fell beneath the shifting sands of the market! That doesn't ... CD
Cadet/Big Pink (Korea), 1968. New Copy
Funk folks unfurling their freak flag, hailing from Tennessee – but working under the aegis of Marshall Chess and Abner Spector in the crossover mode of some of the other Cadet Concept albums from the time, plying a righteous verging-on-soul vibe that a lot of the hippy generation seemed to ... CD
Television Themes
Acid Jazz (UK), 2018. New Copy
A fantastic little album from the great Matt Berry – quite different than some of his other records, but in a really great way! Berry pays homage to some of the greatest songs from the world of British TV – fab themes from the 60s and 70s, served up here with funky jazz instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smash/Elemental (Spain), 1966. New Copy
A seminal album from the mighty Walker Brothers – the group that featured the young Scott Walker before he leapt out onto his legendary solo career! The style here is a bit different than Scott's solo work – or maybe like his first two albums, a bit – a mix of Brill Building pop ... CD
Capitol/Elemental (Spain), 1972. New Copy
A wonderful early record from the great Steve Miller – a set that calls out its soulful intentions with a cover dedication to Mahalia Jackson and Junior Parker! Miller never copies the work of either artist, but instead really does a great job of channeling the soulful spirit of their ... CD
Tiger Bay (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from the Wilde Flowers – a group who were an undeniable precursor to Soft Machine and Caravan, and who also were one of the first to explore some of the farther reaches that would soon explode in the worlds of British prog and psych! The group never issued a full album at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jemp, 1997. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Ohr/Reactive (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD
For great albums from Tangerine Dream – each packaged here in tiny LP sleeves, with a small poster too! Electronic Meditation has a title that's a perfect summation of the way that Tangerine Dream approached their music – and it also really describes what made them so unique at the ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3CD
A great set of 80s British music that's so post-punk, it's traveled back in time – to rework older garagey sounds from the 50s and 60s for a whole new generation raised on the indie spirit of the late 70s! After years when some British groups were getting quite obtuse, others were getting ... CD
