Decca (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
The British love of R&B in the 60s is no secret – thanks to the early work of The Rolling Stones, The Animals, and other chart-topping groups of the time. But here, that side of British music is explored in much greater depth – and served up in an assortment of lesser-known work ... CD
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
David Bowie at his most sinister for the 70s – a landmark set that combines the harder rocking sound of the Ziggy Stardust years with the more sophisticated theatrics of Aladdin Sane – in a style that features some of the darkest, most political work of Bowie's career! There's a depth ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM/Vivid (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A really groovy little record – a set of really catchy pop psych numbers, all of which get the added benefit of larger arrangements from producer Alan Lorber! Orpheus are clearly good enough on their own – a great ear for mixing trippier touches and catchier lyrics – but the ... CD

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
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
Weird work from the Wicker Man generation – that moment in British music where it often seemed like the spookiest sounds could come from the past – as you'll hear here in a huge batch of music from the acid folk revival years! Instrumentation on these tracks is mostly acoustic, but ... CD
Innerspace (UK), 1970. New Copy
Rare early work from Kraftwerk – a live performance done at a time when the group was maybe more tied to the freakier, fuzzier side of the German scene than some of their later spare electronics – stepping out here on long tracks that really show a great ability to jam in an extended ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M/Survival Research (Australia), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
That's a goofy image on the cover – but it's also a perfect introduction to the world of The Dickies – one of the few late 70s punk bands to really showcase a sense of humor! Make no mistake, these guys are the real deal – able to play loud and fast, in a way that even transforms ... 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
Sire/Rhino, 1980. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the most compelling grooves the Talking Heads ever recorded – a set that sparkles with imaginative touches, and railroads forward on a wave of complicated rhythms! The sound is brilliant throughout – a genre-less approach that sheds the group's earlier art nerd aesthetic for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Innerspace (UK), 1970. New Copy
Rare early work from Kraftwerk – a live performance done at a time when the group was maybe more tied to the freakier, fuzzier side of the German scene than some of their later spare electronics – stepping out here on long tracks that really show a great ability to jam in an extended ... LP, Vinyl record album

Metallica

S&M (3LP set)
Blackened, 1999. New Copy 3LPs
The title's a bit of a joke, but it points the way towards the nature of this very special project – as the "S" is the San Francisco Symphony, working with the "M" of Metallica – all in a very special blend of their own sounds with some larger orchestrations ... 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
Polydor/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
The complete Polydor Recordings of Culpeper's Orchard – a Danish group who are every bit as enigmatic as their name! The set begins with their debut – a great record from overlooked Danish group at the start of the 70s – a combo who could easily step between folksy and ... CD
White Whale/Craft, Late 60s. New Copy
A very groovy look at a very groovy record label – LA powerhouse White Whale Records, home to some mighty fine sounds in the second half of the 60s! As you'd guess from the title, there's a slight current of trippiness running through this material, but it's often blended with a really ... 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
Gearbox (UK), 1973. New Copy
Rare live work from Back Door – a Brit trio with plenty of connections to the blues rock scene of the time, but one who has a fair bit of jazzy undertones too! The live set's presented by Alexis Korner, who also plays some guest guitar on the record – but the core sounds come from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
Edsel (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 4CD
Eddie Piller is one mighty cool cat – the force behind the Acid Jazz label for many decades, and also an expert on rare mod records from the 60s – which he's released on some great collections over the years! This time around, Eddie takes us right to the heart of the British mod ... CD
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy
Pascal Comelade is kind of a one-man powerhouse of sound here – turning out all these beautiful little short tunes on a variety of different instruments – pianos, organ, plastic saxes, guitars, vibes, toy piano, tenor, and lots more – often used in dreamy, lyrical ways that seem ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wire

Pink Flag
EMI/Pink Flag, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
One of greatest of all British punk era records – released in '77 and one that transcends mid-to-late 70s punk cultural baggage better than just about any other – a real benchmark! Wire kept it short and sweet on Pink Flag – with 21 tracks in about 35 minutes – and it's as ... 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
Superior Viaduct, 1985. New Copy (reissue)
A record that really defies any easy description – and a project that was done by Gareth Williams after leaving This Heat – put together with the sonic intensity of that groundbreaking group – but with all these other elements besides its trademark percussion! Instead, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ex/Superior Viaduct, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An agitprop masterpiece from The Ex – served up at a time when these guys were moving sharp, short, and pretty darn fast – almost acting like the Dutch equivalent of Crass in both energy and spirit! There's a heck of a lot of songs on the set, and the record bristles with an intensity ... LP, Vinyl record album
Purple Pyramid, Late 70s. New Copy 4CD
A great package – one that features some wildly experimental work from French electronics whiz Philippe Besombes! First up is the album Libra – tripped out electronics meet progressive rock jamming – all in a weird and wonderful film score from the early 70s! The record's one of ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2020. New Copy
Completely wonderful work from Matt Berry – an actor that most folks know for his hilarious performances in a number of TV shows – but also a surprisingly strong singer/songwriter, with a down to earth and honest vibe that's completely different than his role on screen! In fact, forget ... LP, Vinyl record album

Matt Berry

Phantom Birds
Acid Jazz (UK), 2020. New Copy
Completely wonderful work from Matt Berry – an actor that most folks know for his hilarious performances in a number of TV shows – but also a surprisingly strong singer/songwriter, with a down to earth and honest vibe that's completely different than his role on screen! In fact, forget ... CD
RKM/Real Gone, 1974. New Copy
Maybe not the first album of electronics to come out of the European scene – but a set that definitely marked that standout moment when moogy pop found a great way forward! Dan Lacksman had plenty of studio experience before cutting this gem of a record – and he brings that all to bear ... CD
RKM/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy
A really sweet electronic album from Dan Lacksman – one that's a lot more instrumental than his debut album, but which still sounds different than some of the moog records that came before! Dan's really opening up his analog skills here – and he uses the world of electronics in ways ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD
A totally great look at the role of the female singer in mid 70s England – a role that's a bit of an evolution from the UK pop styles of the 60s – soaring forth in a great mix of rock, vocal, and soul-based modes! Some of the singers are names that you'd recognize from the initial ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic collection of work from the UK scene at the start of the 70s – a treasure trove of pop cuts from the time, most of which never made it across the Atlantic to our neck of the woods – and which represent a whole different world of music than you'd know from the classic rock ... CD
Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Catapilla

Changes
Vertigo/Trading Places (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Mindblowing work from Catapilla – one of the most striking groups on the legendary Vertigo label – and an act who seemed to be a perfect fit for its groundbreaking mix of sounds! Catapilla are definitely prog, but have their own sort of vision too – one that comes across ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Hendrix Experience

Axis Bold As Love (180 gram vinyl)
Legacy, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience at their most classic! Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness. Titles include "EXP", "Up From The Skies", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
San Francisco is well-known as ground zero for the Summer Of Love – and the city gave us plenty of big bands that helped push the new sounds of the 60s firmly into the rock mainstream – but at the same time, the city also housed plenty of lesser-known acts and really experimental groups ... CD
Columbia/Madfish, 1968. New Copy
CD...$8.99 11.99
A late 60s masterpiece from The Pretty Things – beautifully baroque west coast psych pop, done in a style that links together the headier LA sound of Love with some of the more concept-driven work of the UK scene at the time! There's an undeniable power in the record – an energy that ... CD
Cicadelic, 1966/1967. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.98
A cool compilation that collects the first couple years of recordings for Chicago's Rembrandt Records – some great and largely unheard garage psyche from The Nuchez, The Nite-Owls (also known as The Nickel Bag), The Circus, The Lemon Drops and others! Some of these cats were still in their ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy
CD...$4.99 14.98
One of the coolest compilations yet on the Cicadelic label – a great collection of sweet, yet fairly rumbling singles from Texas girl group rock from the mid 60s – long-unheard numbers from The WordD, Friday And The Girls, The Heart Beats, The Bombshells, Linda Pierre King and The ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy
CD...$4.99 14.98
Cool 60s rock from the Lone Star State – raw garage rock and melodic gems, too from the mid 60s McAllen, TX scene in the Rio Grande Valley – featuring numbers by The Cavaliers, The Headstones, Christopher And The Souls, The Playboys Of Edinburg, Jeanne Hatfield and Brother And Sister! ... CD
Liberty/Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$112.99 149.99
The complete recordings of The Petards – a legendary German group who are maybe best-known for a few freewheeling albums on Liberty at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – but who also have a not more music here to offer! The set begins before most of the work we've ever heard ... CD
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy 2LP
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
Legacy, 1970. New Copy 3LP & Blu-ray
A legendary set of live performances from Jimi Hendrix – both sets recorded in Maui in July of 1970, presented here officially for the first time ever – along with a bonus documentary on the performances too! The set is kind of the true counterpart to the botched Rainbow Bridge project ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/Universal (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A heavy classic from a moment when the Japanese scene really started to take off and find its own directions in rock music – which is definitely the case from this hip combo who sing in Japanese, but have all these amazing instrumental elements that provide the record with a universal appeal! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 4CDs
A really great idea for a collection, and one that traces a really unique moment in time – that explosion of small indie labels on the UK scene during the early years of punk – a moment that opened the door for countless new waves of musical expression for years to come! Sure, the big ... CD
Ryko, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A special vinyl sampler from Frank Zappa – intended to point the way towards the big run of releases that would soon come on CD under the same title!

Grapefruit (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A recent project from July – that legendary UK psych band of the late 60s, still sounding surprisingly great after all these years!

Space Age Recordings (UK), 1997. New Copy 2LP (reissue)

Cherry Red (UK), 1980s. New Copy 5CD
A full package of work from the great Chaz Jankel – the keyboardist/composer who first rose to fame with Ian Dury & The Blockheads, but who went onto make some even better work on his own! Jankel's the guy responsible for the great groove on some of the best Dury classics – and ... CD
