Rock — Recently Added

XA mix of classic styles -- psych, garage, prog, rockabilly, punk, post-punk, singer/songwriter, and even classic rock!


Liquid Label, 2022. New Copy
A really great solo project from Charles Prest of Flamingods – a set that's got a completely compelling mix of psychedelic elements, contemporary beats, and some of the fuzzier sounds of the UK scene in the 80s! There's definitely a resonance here with that 80s moment when folks started to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grand Funk Railroad

On Time (180 gram pressing)
Capitol/Elemental, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
The mighty debut of Grand Funk Railroad – a set that has them bursting out of the box as one of the hardest-hitting power trios on the American scene! Like contemporaries ZZ Top or James Gang, these guys have clearly been influenced by the best electric blues of the previous decade or two ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 6CD
The complete Creation Records work of Biff Bang Pow – a group who were one of our favorite moments of 80s jangle pop from the UK – a group headed up by Creation founder Alan McGee, and an ensemble who probably kept the Creation spirit more strongly than any other group! McGee took the ... CD

Alan Shearer

Dark Is The Color
Favorite (France), 1985. New Copy (reissue)
The color is dark, but the sound is nice and lean too – a well-done album of spare post-punk synth and keyboards – all with a vibe that's a lot more tuneful than you might expect from the cover! Alan Shearer works here in modes from the farther reaches of the Factory Records universe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dino & Montevideo Blues

Montevideo Blues (plus bonus tracks)
Lion, 1972. New Copy
CD...$3.99 11.99
Really compelling work from the enigmatic Dino – a set recorded with slow, slinky backings from the Montevideo Blues combo! The album's a lot less blues than you might guess from the group's name – and in a way, the approach is almost more folksy, or singer/songwriter overall – ... CD
BTF (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A pretty great 70s set from the Italian scene – one that features contributions from avant composer Franco Battiato, but at a level that's very different than his own albums of the time! The songs are tuneful, and have lead vocals that are often compressed, with a bit of echo around the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Poker/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Warmly crafted vocal work from Erik Tagg – a Dutch singer who'd relocated to Texas by the time of this mid 70s set – singing here in English with some nicely jazzy backings on the set! There's a style here that's a bit singer/songwriter, but somewhat deeper too – one that has a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 1981/1982. New Copy 2LP
Two well-recorded live performances from the Stiff Little Fingers – both done for the BBC! The first set is from London, April 1981 – with titles that include "Roots Radicals Rockers & Reggae", "Safe As Houses", "Gate 49", "Piccadilly Circus" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great overview of the early years of Richard Thompson – a set that brings together some rare material and classics, all at a level that really shows the multi-faceted genius he had right from the start! In later years, Thompson continued to be known as a skillful singer/songwriter – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swan/Sundazed, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
LP...$9.99 25.99
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
Lion, 1969. New Copy
CD...$4.99 11.99
A beautiful bit of folk-psych from the late 60s UK scene – recorded for Polydor in 1969, but never issued at the time – now finally getting its first exposure to the world at large! The group have a really easygoing approach – blending fuzzy electric and softer acoustic guitars, ... CD
7T's (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD
A really wonderful collection of work from the short-lived by crucial moment of glam rock on the UK scene – a moment that's maybe most famously remembered for work by David Bowie and Marc Bolan, but which had a much wider-ranging quality than you might expect! Glam was crucial in so many ... CD
Munster (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy
An incredible batch of prime garage rock era nuggets from the Peruvian scene – fuzzy gems by the Saicos! The Saicos bring a sense of menace to these tunes – with a guitar tone touched with an eerie vibe, and lead vocals that are really piercing and gravelly in that instills this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dead Oceans, 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The second half of this legendary retrospective on the work and music of the great Bill Fay – a set that's different than the first volume in that it showcases later recordings that Fay was doing at home – really great material that ended up heralding a great later chapter in his career! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD
Maybe the first-ever collection to really get at the huge scope of work handled by the great John Carter – an important figure in the UK music scene of the 60s, but one who worked in a variety of guises, and never got as much exposure in the spotlight as he might! Carter was a hell of a ... CD

Echo & The Bunnymen

Ocean Rain (180 gram pressing)
Sire, 1984. New Copy (reissue)
Echo & The Bunnymen at the height of their powers – able to deliver music that's as majestic as it is moody, and which nicely avoids all the cliches of the artists the group influenced in years to come! There's subtle use of strings that really give the record a fantastic vibe – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bad Brains

Rock For Light
PVC/ORG, 1983. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal album from The Bad Brains – and a set that forever shaped the sound of hardcore in the 80s! These guys are incredibly tight throughout – no doubt because of some previous work in jazz – but they never get overindulgent or too jammy at all – and instead deliver ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1981. New Copy 2CD
An unusual full length album from Dramatis – a group who'd been working as the backup group for Gary Numan, then had to step out on their own after getting the boot! That's hardly an issue, though – as this set features the group really awash in all the best modes they'd forged with ... CD
United Artists/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2CD
A really surprising step forward for two members of the legendary group Blossom Toes – guitarist Brian Godding and bassist Brian Belshaw – both musicians who were already blowing the scene away in their previous group, but who here expand their sound with a whole range of influences ... CD

Keef Hartley Band

Battle Of North West Six
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy
A tremendous set from one of the best – and most under-recognized – groups of the British jazz rock scene at the end of the 60s! The group have an approach that mixes heavy blues-influenced jamming with some of the lighter, more lyrical touches that were showing up at the time – ... CD
Uni/Tune In (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
A pair of classics from Strawberry Alarm Clock – back to back on a single CD! First up is their classic Incense & Peppermints – dreamy pop psych from Strawberry Alarm Clock – a great late 60s group who skirted the worlds of Sunshine Pop and more jamming garage rock! This ... CD
El/Cherry Red (UK), 1989. New Copy
The final album in the initial run of genius from Felt – a set that marks a short step from Creation Records over to El at Cherry Red – where they receive some nicely expanded handling on the production! Adrian Borland produced, and the tunefulness of the songs really comes to the ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1984. New Copy
Pure brilliance from Felt – the kind of record that made the group quite out of time in the early 80s scene, and which has continued to get them attention for decades to come! There's guitar work here that's both inspired by the psych years, but also filtered through the post-punk ... CD
Dead Oceans, 2009. New Copy
The second half of this legendary retrospective on the work and music of the great Bill Fay – a set that's different than the first volume in that it showcases later recordings that Fay was doing at home – really great material that ended up heralding a great later chapter in his career! ... CD
Dead Oceans, Early 70s. New Copy 2CDs
Genius work from the legendary Bill Fay – one of those 70s artists who never got their due back in the day, but who have gone on to become a crucial piece of the musical puzzle as the years move on! Fay recorded two incredible records for Decca – treasures as rare as the early Nick ... CD
Century Media, 1985. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The hugely influential debut of Possessed – and a major metal milestone! Hard rock and heavy metal bands from mainstream heroes to underground genre heavies dabbled with devilish lyrics and paired the sounds of lumbering heaviness and lightning speed before, but Possessed break so much ... LP, Vinyl record album
Be! (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD & Hardcover book
CD...$139.99 219.99
A sprawling set of rare singles in a variety of genres – and a set that's maybe one of the most essential in the "state" series from the Be! Records label! Previous entries have included Michigan, Texas, and other states with a well-known recorded legacy – but this time ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
A really lovely little collection, and a set that digs deep into a time when things were moving from the fringes to the mainstream in British music – but with groups that still mostly had a real edge and a strong sense of invention! The work here is setting the scene for some of the big ... CD

Cosmic Jokers

Galactic Supermarket
Die Kosmischen Kuriere (Germany), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark bit of work from the Cosmic Jokers – real heroes of the German prog era, and less a batch of pranksters than some serious prog rock heavyweights – given that the lineup here features Dieter Dierks, Manuel Gottsching, Klaus Schulze, and Harald Grosskopf – all coming ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colgems/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic set from The Monkees – maybe the record that really had them coming together and finding that special groove that was all their own! The set features their completely sublime "Pleasant Valley Sunday" – but also has this great range of unusual material that seems ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), 1988. New Copy
Pure genius from a group who kept on growing strongly over the relatively short span of their career – maybe under-sung heroes at the time of their release, at least on this side of the Atlantic – but one of the few truly classic groups we can think of from the decade, at least with a ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 11.99
Don't think "Easter", think "groovy springtime" instead – as the tracks here are a great assortment of postwar numbers that conjure up the spirit of spring – some with bunny-themed lyrics, but others with a range of very cool styles! As with other Bear Family ... CD
Parlophone, 2022. New Copy 3LP
A great combination of remixes old and new – a set that features some of the 12" single remixes of Kraftwerk tracks from the early 80s onward, plus some new mixes by the group themselves – more than enough to make the album a great testament to their electronic genius, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reprise/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 6CD
A huge collection of work from one of the most enigmatic groups of the 60s – all of their classic albums for Reprise, plus rare material too! First up is the self-titled Electric Prunes set, in stereo and mono - an early moment of genius from The Electric Prunes – and exactly the kind ... CD
Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 4CD
There's few folks who know the British mod scene better than Eddie Piller – as the DJ and head of Acid Jazz records has done plenty in recent decades to both give exposure to older British groups who never got their due, and also help some contemporary mod combos get the exposure they deserve! ... CD
E One, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists/Fire, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Call Of The Void (UK), 1983. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Mute, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Suicide may be one of the coolest groups of all time – at least as one to emerge from the New York scene at the end of the 70s – where even amidst the giants of the time, they had a sound that was unlike anything else! The duo of Alan Vega and Martin Rev mixed broken electronics with ... 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
Universal, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The Rolling Stones at their rawest, most shambling, sleazy and brilliant – the epic, unimpeachable Exile On Main Street! What can we say about one of the most iconic LPs of all time other than chime in with our agreement that it's one of the greatest rock albums ever! Big choruses come and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca/Geffen, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
The first full-length set from The Who – a blistering batch of rough-edged tunes that run the gamut from bluesy soul to sweeter pop to guitar-driven grinders that show an incredible amount of power – even at this early point! The album's somewhat all over the map, but in a good way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jacques Charlier

Art In Another Way
Morning Trip (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP
Very cool work from Belgian artist Jacques Charlier – music that almost brings a cold wave style into play with some more familiar French song styles – but with this dark edge that almost feels like work on Factory Records or Disques Du Crepuscule! A good deal of these tracks are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colgems/Rhino, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefod (reissue)
The second full length set from The Monkees – a record that was issued at a time when global interest in the group was at an early peak, and when the group were able to deliver way more than just the "More" promised in the title! All the vocal performances here are top shelf – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Terror Vision, 1981. New Copy Gatefold
Tangerine Dream delivered a number of famous soundtracks in the late 70s and early 80s – but this set is one of the most obscure, and maybe one of the wildest too! The music was done for an Australian horror film, and has a very dark, moody vibe – still plenty of the Tangerine Dream ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy
The searing second album from Jade Warrior – and a record that shows the world what a mighty guitar powerhouse lurked behind their faux-Japanese aesthetics! The group's a quintet for this record – upped from the debut – and in addition to razor-sharp guitar work from Tony Duhig, ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A pair of wondeful albums – back to back in a single set, with bonus material too! First up is Answer – 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 ... CD

Happy End

Kazemachi Roman
Pony Canyon (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A seminal bit of Japanese rock from the early 70s – performed by a group that included Harumi Hosono, and who has a style that borrows from the best of the LA scene of the late 60s! The tunes are extremely catchy – done in a folksy style that has compressed guitars and spacious ... LP, Vinyl record album
