Warlock

Warlock
Music Merchant/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of the stranger chapters of the Holland-Dozier-Holland story of the early 70s – and one of the coolest, too! Warlock are a jazzy rock combo with plenty of soul – a bit like a twisted version of Blood Sweat & Tears, but with all the sinister energy you'd guess from the image on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maki Asakawa

Some Years Past
Universal (Japan), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Maki Asakawa looks as dark and moody as ever on the cover, but there's actually a few moments here that seem to have a spark of positivity – although maybe one that's just in the instrumentation and production, which seem to borrow a bit from some of the darker side of the UK spectrum at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (Japan), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
Strong 80s work from the legendary Maki Asakawa – one of the most unique vocalists of her time, but a singer who often didn't get much exposure outside of the Japanese market in which she recorded! This set's got some surprising songwriting contributions from jazz talents Shigeharu Mukai and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album

Gebarvaterli

Im Tal Der Emmen
Brutkasten/Long Hair (France), 1978. New Copy
An all-instrumental album from this lost German group of the late 70s – a combo who are definitely rock, but who play with some of the freer, more open modes of a jazz group too – maybe working here in a style that could be called prog fusion, or fusion prog! The lineup features work ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1988. New Copy (reissue)
We're not sure we've ever heard Carlos Toshiki and Omega Drive before – but the album's a great entry in the Japanese scene of the 80s – a soulful set that really marks a moment when warmer sounds were coming back to the music! The instrumentation is definitely 80s-styled, but used ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jarvis Cocker

Chansons D'Ennui Tip Top
Abkco, 2021. New Copy
A really cool project from Jarvis Cocker – a set that's inspired by the Wes Anderson film The French Dispatch, with Cocker singing in French throughout – and at a level that really opens up his well-known love of some of the best pop modes of the 20th Century! Jarvis often whispers as ... CD
Columbia, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
One of the more heavily brooding albums ever cut by Leonard Cohen – and also one of the best – the iconic Songs Of Love And Hate from 1971! Cohen's aptly titled third LP, with the nice spare approach to production that most of his early work had, even more stripped down, with voice and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swan/Sundazed, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A wonderful collection of work from Swan Records – the legendary Philly indie who was one of the city's first great sources of rock, pop, and soul – presented here in a special focus on female artists who recorded for the label! The package has some very well-chosen cuts – as a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sketch Show (Yukihiro Takahasi & Haruomi Hosono)

Audio Sponge (cream vinyl pressing)
Cutting Edge (Japan), 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Pretty nice work from the Japanese duo of Yukihiro Takahasi & Haruomi Hosono – a mixture of quirky electronics that has a fresh sound we wouldn't expect from these two older talents! The album's got a really nice feel overall – abstract one minute, but sweet and catchy the other ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wax Trax, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A really surprising set from Coil – a record that has the group sticking strongly to their roots as a more experimental industrial act, at a time when so many of their contemporaries from that scene were just heading for the dancefloor! Make no mistake, there's still plenty of groove-oriented ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paramount/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy 4CD
A massive set of work from Affinity – a group who only gave the world one classic album, but have a heck of a lot more to offer too! The set begins with the self-titled album from Affinity – a British rock combo, but one with a distinctly jazzy feel – one that's often quite funky ... CD

Makoto Kubota & The Sunset Gang

Hawaii Champroo
Show Boat/We Want Sounds (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful record that finds a great 70s expression of the longstanding love of Hawaiian music that's held fast in Japan for many many years – a set that was recorded in Hawaii by offbeat Japanese musician Makoto Kubota, in ways that offer up his own very personal interpretation of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1991. New Copy (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red/Modern Harmonic, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A really strange little record from the glory days of Cherry Red Records – and a set that's very different than you might expect from the high-end fashion look of the cover! The group have a mix of punk and reggae elements – usually nice and lean, with the bass as upfront in the mix as ... 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
Raks/Everland (Austria), 1960s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 16.98
Iranian garage rock – kind of hard to believe at first, but a surprising musical discovery overall! The package documents a very overlooked scene – rock bands from late 60s Iran who were clearly inspired by the American underground of the time – working in a heady brew of guitar, ... CD
Dawn/Long Hair (France), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A record with an understated title – one that hardly gets at the raw power that Man serves up here on their smoking second album! As before, the group have a great way of blending prog instrumentation with a more down to earth sort of quality – one that's even a bit different than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nosferatu

Nosferatu
Vogue/Long Hair (Germany), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic group from the German scene at the start of the 70s – a crucially overlooked act who only ever cut this one album – a really great set that sparkles even more from production by Conny Plank! Nosferatu are part of a big wave of progressive German acts of the time – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brain/Long Hair (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic little record from the glory days of the Brain Records label in Germany – a set that's equal part rock and jazz – either fusion-tinged rock, or rock-tinged fusion – served up with all these really weird and wild touches that really send things over the top! There's no ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tempest

Living In Fear
Bronze/Long Hair (France), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A really great record from Tempest – a group who have so many different things going on at once – guitars that would be right at home on a hard rock effort, rhythmic complexity that verges on prog, and a tunefulness that really sends the whole thing over the top with an unexpected ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Bardens

Answer
Verve/Long Hair (France), 1970. New Copy
Fantastic solo work from Peter Bardens – an artist who'd later gain fame as the lead singer of Camel, but who's even more fantastic here on his own – working in a trippy blend of modes that's equally balanced between prog and psych! Bardens plays organ on most of the tracks, but he ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mouse/Long Hair (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
The only album ever issued by Mammut – a fantastic German group who worked in the same Black Forest setting as the MPS Records label – which maybe is why there's so many wonderful jazz elements in the mix here! The record's got equal parts jazz and psych going on – maybe almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirogyra

Old Boot Wine
Peg/Long Hair (France), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Compelling sounds from Spirogyra – a group who have some proggish elements, but also a folksy sensibility too – which makes for a really wonderful balance between jamming moments and more intimate sounds! Guitar and keyboards take plenty of place in the mix – often spinning out ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirogyra

St Radiguns
B & C/Long Hair (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The debut album from one of the most unique groups of their generation – a group who were partway between acid folk and proggy rock – yet with qualities that were also uniquely their own as well! The group were equally at home with acoustic and electric instruments – but play ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marsupilami

Arena
Transatlantic/Long Hair (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A heady bit of progressive rock from Marsupilami – about as high-concept as you might guess from the cover! The record features five extended songs that are all filled with plenty of jamming on guitar, keyboards, flute, and saxes – all in a suite of tunes that vaguely hint at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dawn/Long Hair (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
Great work from a really overlooked group – one who have the skills of a prog act, but some of the sensitivity of a more folksy combo – which maybe is why they were such a perfect fit for the unusual sound of the Dawn label in the UK! These guys clearly have chops – the keyboard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fruupp

Seven Secrets
Dawn/Long Hair (France), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Very cool work from Fruupp – one of the more progressive acts on the legendary Dawn label from the UK, and one who aren't afraid to mix in a bit of oboe with their freewheeling guitar and keyboard lines! The group have a sound that's a bit hard to peg – maybe a slight classical ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blonde On Blonde

Contrasts
Pye/Long Hair (France), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A wonderful little set from Blonde On Blonde – a group who may have taken their name from a tune by Bob Dylan, but who have a sound that's completely different than that reference might make you expect! There's a quality here that place the group at so many junctures of UK music at the end ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pye/Long Hair (France), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Titus Groan isn't a guy, but the name of the group – a fantastic jazz rock combo from the UK scene at the start of the 70s, and one who work here without hardly any vocals at all on the start of the record! Yet the group hardly need lyrics to get their message across – as the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dawn/Long Hair (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Fruupp are a group who may use ancient imagery on their covers, but who work with a very modern feel overall – or at least one that was pretty darn contemporary at the time of this release from 1973! The vibe is prog, but a bit more focused than tied around album-side jams – as Fruupp ... LP, Vinyl record album

Utopia

Utopia
United Artists/Long Hair (Germany), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Not the Utopia group with Todd Rundgren in the lineup, but an earlier German act who only cut this one album – which itself was sort of a side project away from the sessions for the Wolf City album by Amon Duul II! Utopia shares members, a producer, and a lot of energy with that group – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gomorrha

Trauma
BASF/Long Hair (Germany), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A group with a biblical name, but a sound that's very down to earth – thanks to strongly soulful vocals from Peter Otten, whose English language contributions really make the record shine! Gomorrah come from a generation of progressive German groups, but this second album has the combo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gebarvaterli

Im Tal Der Emmen
Brutkasten/Long Hair (France), 1978. New Copy
An all-instrumental album from this lost German group of the late 70s – a combo who are definitely rock, but who play with some of the freer, more open modes of a jazz group too – maybe working here in a style that could be called prog fusion, or fusion prog! The lineup features work ... CD

Amos Key

First Key
Interchord/Long Hair (Germany), 1974. New Copy
A pretty sharp trio with incredible energy – a German prog group of the early 70s, but one who've got a hell of a lot of dexterity – so much so, they may well rival the greatness of big UK acts like ELP or Yes! The keyboards are all handled by Thomas Molin, who's got this ability to ... CD

18 Karat Gold

All Bumm
Long Hair (Germany), 1973. New Copy
A group that sound more like a 70s funk act from their name – but instead a great overlooked German act, with a sweetly compressed vibe that's different than some of the more familiar prog or psych of the time! The group shares members with Amon Duul II and Embryo, but sounds like neither of ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy
A totally groovy little collection – the sort that we love so much from the mighty Teensville label! The package is overflowing with rare singles from the late 60s – tracks we never would have heard otherwise, and which together have a wonderfully sunny sort of vibe – that late ... CD
ABC/Big Pink (South Korea), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
A great bit of work from the re-formed Blues Magoos – a new incarnation of the group that had a few early garage rock hits, and which on this set features some great work by Eric Kaz, who seems to add a hip singer-songwriter feel to the record. The group have clearly been listening to a lot ... CD

Jimi Hendrix Experience

Are You Experienced (180 gram vinyl)
Legacy, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Not experienced? Well, this album will help push you over the top – as it's done for decades of listeners from the heyday of young Jimi Hendrix all the way up to the present! The set's a classic through and through – a blueprint not just for the genius of Hendrix, but for generations ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ace/Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Searing, sneering work from the Cali scene of the late 60s – a surprisingly huge legacy of work that goes far beyond some of the bigger west coast garage gems by acts like The Seeds or Sonics! The cuts here all come from LA indie labels Dore, Era, and Mira – companies that we mostly ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy
A wonderful compilation of Lee Hazlewood songs performed by others in the 60s – magnificent pulp pop, girl groups, starlets, rockers and more covering prime era Lee tunes – songs about lovers, fools, rebels and heartbroken examples of all of the above! There's little we can add to the ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful little record from 70s Japan – a set that's got the warmly collaborative spirit you'd expect from the image on the cover, and an overall sound that's very much like some of the best material from the Cali scene at the time! Instrumentation is great – a blend of acoustic and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Universal (Japan), 1997. New Copy (reissue)
Soulful work from the Japanese scene of the 90s – a record from that time when so many singers were picking up some of the best influences from the UK scene – particularly the new wave of British soul qualities that were unleashed after the acid jazz years! And as with some of those ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wax Trax, 2021. New Copy 2LP
The first record in many many years from Chicago legends Naked Raygun – but a set that makes us feel like we're still with the group back in the days when they had all their best qualities fully intact! The interplay between blistering guitar lines and anthemic lyrics is fantastic – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wax Trax, 2021. New Copy
The first record in many many years from Chicago legends Naked Raygun – but a set that makes us feel like we're still with the group back in the days when they had all their best qualities fully intact! The interplay between blistering guitar lines and anthemic lyrics is fantastic – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), 1971. New Copy 3CD
Short songs, but exploding with a huge range of new musical ideas – not the side-long jams of the progressive rock generation, but instead some singles and album tracks that manage to pack all of the best elements into some mighty catchy tunes! These tracks all benefit from a huge explosion ... CD
RCA, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD
A heady serving of work from the UK scene at the end of the 60s – work from the very vibrant scenes around Birmingham at the time – a place that was starting to deliver a heck of a lot more music than previous hotspots like Liverpool! In some ways, the sounds here are a great ... CD
Mississippi, Late 60s. New Copy
Incredible work from Human Expression – a group with this moody, dark quality that's completely mindblowing, especially given their young years at the time of these recordings! The music certainly falls into the garagey sounds of the Sunset Strip scene at the time – but there's also a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Village Thing/Cherry Tree (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD
First things first – this isn't the Ian Anderson at the head of Jethro Tull, but instead an equally great artist who never fully got his due – one with an "A" in the middle of his name, and a very different sound overall! The "blues and psych" in the title only get ... CD
