London, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A record that was initially thought by some as a cheap cash-in on the Sgt Peppers concept – but an album that, to us, really helped set The Rolling Stones free to express themselves in so many new and amazing ways! There's definitely a bit of the hippie vibe to the set at times – such ... LP, Vinyl record album
Multi-Task
Trouble In Mind, 2017. New Copy
A pretty great post-millennium riff on classic post punk guitar pop! Omni has a way of making kind of jittery, intricate guitars sound almost effortless, with laidback vocals and off kilter, but insistent melodies that's a little reminiscent of Television – albeit without that legendary band's ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic collection of rare punk nuggets from the glory days of the UK scene – put together by DJ Gary Crowley, who runs a specialist show on British radio – and served up here in a book-style package that's overflowing with detailed notes, images of the original singles, and other ... CD
Demon (UK), 1968/1969/1973. New Copy 4CD
A fantastic collection of recordings – one that features three different live sets by Tim Buckley – none of which were issued during his too-short life! The first half of the set – discs 1 and 2 – features the amazing Dream Letter show, recorded in London in 1968 – ... CD
Demon (UK), 1968. New Copy 3LP
A fantastic live outing from the legendary Tim Buckley – one that not only includes Tim singing unusual versions of some of his album tracks from the late 60s, but which also includes a number of songs that he never recorded elsewhere! Plus, the quartet on the date also features Dave ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 2016. New Copy
The first album in years from Tortoise – plus a bonus download of rare live recordings and great little photo journal of the band on tour – shot by Andrew Paynter! The Catastrophist album finds the Chi post rock heroes stretching out creatively in fascinating ways, some subtle and ... CD
Creedence Clearwater Revival (20 bit remaster)
Fantasy, 1968. New Copy
CD...$2.99 11.99
The stunning debut of CCR – a record that still burns with an undeniable fire after all these years! Sure, all the elements here have been copped by many – the fuzzy guitar, lean bluesy groove, and raw soul-inspired vocals of John Fogerty – but the way the group puts them ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1999. New Copy (reissue)
Timeless avant grooves from Isotope 217! We can remember when these guys were just a loose collective of musicians, playing Miles-influenced spacey jazz jams in unadvertised Monday night gigs at Chicago's legendary Rainbo Room. On record they've metamorphosized into one of the most distinctive ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
One of the breeziest breaths of fresh air in mid 90s inide rock! As much as any band of the era, The Sea & Cake managed to filter diverse tastes into their own music, from easygoing, unaggressive indie pop & rock, to Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian pop, rock and soul rhythms, to some vaguely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, New Copy (reissue)
One of the most engaging earlier records by the Chicago avant pop greats The Sea And Cake! The Biz has a reputation as one their looser, and more structurally sprawling records – but to honest, we don't really hear that – the drums are louder in the mix, the rhythms sink in deeply, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thrill Jockey, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the best by The Sea & Cake – working in some more diverse elements than some of their later work – but even at this earlyish point, they've got a distinctive style all their own! It kicks off with the rawish, angular rocker "Nature Boy", but as the album goes along ... LP, Vinyl record album
Touch Tones, 2017. New Copy
A pretty great, largely (but not solely) instrumentals set from some Chicago scene heavies! Touch Tones is anchored by the duo of Nick Macri & James Elkington – but is also something of a Chicago avant/experimental all stars effort – with help from the great jazz drummer Tim Daisy, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lion, 2016. New Copy (reissue)
A contemporary set of rock fusion recorded in Buenos Aries – but one with a spacey vibe that takes us right back to the 70s bom in the genre! The group's a quartet, and very heavy on guitars and keyboards – which they weave together in a spiralling musical path to soar to the skies ... LP, Vinyl record album
Spin/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
The Dave Miller Set look a bit mod on the cover – but the sound of these tracks is maybe in the best pop psych mode of the time – with nice bits of fuzz around the edges, very groovy lyrics, and some really cool production on some of the best tracks! The group are quite overlooked, but ... CD
Circle Filled With Love
Ariola/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Great blue-eyed soul work from the Sons Of Champlin – a group who, in a perfect world, should have been as big in the 70s as The Doobie Brothers – but who might be even better for the lack of that fame! Things are funky at the bottom – never trying to match the energy of a soul ... CD
Gregg Rolie
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1985. New Copy
Gregg Rolie's got a great way with a hook here – the kind of catchy, focused 80s pop that would have really made his songs stand out if they were used on a soundtrack – often touched with cool, compressed guitar solo – the sort that was used often at the time to underscore the ... CD
Tummy Tapes, 1969. New Copy
Two very long, stretched-performances from the Velvet Underground – recorded on March 15, 1969 – and really showing the insane guitar work the group brought to their live shows! Side one features a version of "Heroin" with lots of instrumental improvisation – and side ... LP, Vinyl record album
Water Wing, 1978. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A rare punk singer from the Swiss scene – featuring work by Astrid Spring – who was later known for her work in the group Liliput! "Neon" has a very raw, stark vibe – right up there with the best of the UK scene at the time, with a very Rough Trade sort of vibe – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy
We're not normally ones to stock a Cher album, but this one's pretty darn hip – recorded in at Muscle Shoals Sound, the studio referenced in the title of the album, and presented in a wonderful cover image that has Cher standing outside the tiny facility with a host of legendary studio ... CD
Bunker/Now Again, 1972. New Copy 3CD
One of the darkest albums of the Krautrock scene in the 70s – an album that was actually recorded in a WWII-era bunker – where the duo were free to open up their instruments, jam for a very long time, and play with the sorts of effects and techniques you might know from bigger groups of ... CD
