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


A&M/Rhino, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The early 70s glam masterpiece from T Rex – setting the standard for the sounds to come – and pop landmark status aside, it's probably the best album Bolan, Mickey Finn and the group ever cut! On Electric Warrior, T Rex resurrects the primitive spirit of the seediest rock of their ... LP, Vinyl record album
London/Warner, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The fantastic first album from ZZ Top – already a heady mix of Texas blues and psych roots, served up into a style that's completely the group's own – but which hasn't yet been watered down by commercial cliches and MTV! The sound here really puts these guys much more in the company of ... LP, Vinyl record album
One Nation Underground
ESP/Drag City, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
The incredible debut from Pearls Before Swine – a group who were a bit late to the New York folk party of the 60s – but at a level that really helped them evolve past the rest of their scene! The album's sometimes a bit overlooked – as it came out on the mostly-jazz ESP label ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reaching for Indigo
Drag City, 2017. New Copy
An extremely beautiful set from singer Haley Fohr – a record that combines late folk singer/songwriter styles with some of the deeper, darker tones of the post-punk generation too – in a way that feels like Tom Rapp into 4AD, or maybe Robbie Basho into Diamanda Galas! The songs are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Page One/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy
An album that's maybe best remembered for its connection with the world of the young Elton John – as the man himself plays piano on the record, and also contributed a number of songs – but a set that's also a standout achievement from sisters Doreen and Irene Chanter! The duo are ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD
The mighty lost legacy of Stray – an overlooked UK hard rock outfit of the early 70s – presented here in a package that includes all their five albums, plus a full CD of rare material too! These guys have a riffing dexterity that should have won them guitar hero praise of years to come ... CD
Polydor, 1977. New Copy 4CD & DVD
1977 was an important musical year for many folks – but it was especially important for The Jam – as the group not only gave the world their first two records, and did a whole lot of other recording too! All those sounds are collected here – in a beautiful box set that brings ... CD
Chariot Rising
Esoteric (UK), 1967. New Copy
An amazing step sideways for London's Zoot Money – a move from mod to psych, with a trippy quality that's quite different from his jazzy sound a few years before! The group's got legendary fame – not just for the shift in styles by Zoot, but also for the fact that it features key work ... CD
Rough Trade/Sire, 1986. New Copy 3CD & DVD
A triumphant third album from The Smiths – one that really focuses the energy of their previous sets, and helps them find a new sort of sonic perfection! Those haunting guitars are still in all the right places – as are Morrissey's heartfelt lyrics – but there's also a nice ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one ... CD
Lion, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The Troyes look plenty young on the cover, but the Michigan quintet can really stand shoulder-to-shoulder with much older garage groups of their generation! The music here is another one of those "what ifs" from the mid 60s American hinterland – a group who were every bit as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Hipster sounds from the pre-hippie years – tracks that were either recorded by beatniks, or which have a very cool beat-themed style to them – all pulled together from a range of rare recordings at the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s! The sound here is maybe what you'd guess ... LP, Vinyl record album
Euphoria
Heritage/Vinilisssimo, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Sweet sunshiney wonderfulness from an incredibly groovy group – a quartet of voices who are equally trained in folk and harmony modes, but who move into some even hipper territory on this record! The album was arranged by Joe Renzetti and produced by Jerry Ross – and it's got a nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
Pivotal early Dylan! Plenty of early classics and hits on this one – including "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right", "Blowin In The Wind", "Down The Highway", "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall", "I Shall Be Free", "Bob Dylan's Dream", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The genius of 70s Thin Lizzy – served up here in all its glory – really stretching out in a double-length live set with nary a dull moment at all! The production on the Thin Lizzy studio albums is always impeccable – and really works wonders with the guitars, and the vocals of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creep Mission
Blue Chopsticks, 2017. New Copy
A stunning set from David Grubbs – an artist who's been blowing our minds for decades, and who never ceases to surprise us! This time around, Grubbs mixes longform guitar passages with a slight sense of improvisation at times – adding in trumpet from Nate Wooley on five of the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy 2CD
A pair of amazing albums – and a huge amount of bonus material too – all from one of the coolest groups on Warner Brothers at the end of the 60s! First up is the record The Moth Confesses – one of our favorite albums ever from the genius moment of late 60s Warner Brothers – ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy
Pretty great later work from Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks – not the immediately-retro style of their earlier albums, but instead this wonderful blend of so many different jazz and acoustic elements – set forward with a style that's wonderfully groovy overall! There's a hip, scatting ... CD
