Cherry Red (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 6CDs
A deep deep look at a side of the British 60s scene that didn't always make big waves here in the US – but one that had a huge influence on UK sounds for years to come! The mighty book-like package documents the rich stream of sounds that exploded during the beat group years – a moment ... CD
Universal, 1968. New Copy 2CDs
Let's just begin by saying that this album features a 33 minute version of "My Generation"! We probably don't even need to say more, but we will exclaim that this is a searing little live set from The Who – one that comes on with the same sort of power as their legendary Live At ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 5CDs
A massive package of early music from The New York Dolls – tracks that really expand on their too-slim catalog from the first few years! The set begins with two CDs worth of demos by the group – very rough-edged, pre-punk material that's got an even sharper feel than their initial ... CD
Universal, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs
A fantastic first album from Pete Townshend – one that showed the world that he was a hell of a force to be reckoned with, even away from The Who! There's some elements here that link back to Pete's work with the band, but the music here is already showing lots of new ideas brewing in his ... CD
Toms
Black Sheep, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
A rare slice of power pop from the end of the 70s – just the kind of indie label gem that makes the genre so great! In a world where so many other groups were getting punky or quirky, The Toms keep things tight and right – really focusing on catchy melodies and well-penned rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album
GAD (Poland), 1975. New Copy 2CD
A legendary live performance by this Polish power trio – one that was famously broadcast on radio in the 70s, and which is presented here in its original order, along with lots of bonus tracks too! SBB are way more than a rock group – as although they embrace plenty of elements of the ... CD
Hit-Ton Schalllatten/Numero, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A gem of a record from one of the coolest UK groups of the 60s – served up here in a German release that maybe gives The Creation one of their most vibrant covers ever! Despite the European issue of the material, the tracks here are all Brit brilliance from the group and producer Shel Talmy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy
Brilliant work from Nirvana – a duo who bring together so many wonderful elements of late 60s Brit pop – from weird trippy touches to tuneful melodies to superb full arrangements – handled here by giants Mike Vickers, Johnny Scott, and Tony Visconti! There's a bounce and a push ... CD
Shore Leave
Coyote/Bar None, 1987. New Copy
One of the most beautiful albums to come from the Hoboken scene in the 80s – a Feelies side project that's every bit as great as that group's albums from the time! In fact, the style here is almost an answer to the mode of their classic Good Earth album – a similar blend of hypnotic ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Totally groovy sounds from the Swedish scene of the 60s – a flurry of female pop tunes that we love every bit as our favorite French femme work from the time! Like French pop, the tunes here are lively and upbeat – often with a slight current of funk or soul in the rhythms, and with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet Potatoes
Reprise/Omnivore, 1972. New Copy
Geoff and Maria Muldaur are really finding their groove here – sounding quite different than their 60s years in the jug band scene, and working with a warmth and jazziness that points the way towards Maria's big solo years too! There's still some roots elements in the music, but the sound of ... CD
Ondes (France), 1979. New Copy
The cover here looks a bit more digital than some of Zanov's earlier records, but the music still feels very analogue overall – created in that warm blend of keyboards and electronics that's always made his albums so great! Zanov seems a bit more confident than before – working on some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Randy & The Randies
Mississippi, Early 80s. New Copy
Maybe the complete work of Randy & The Randies – a set that includes a few live tracks, rare singles, and even their songs for the soundtrack of the Beauty film from 1982! These guys hail from the Pacific Northwest, and have a sound that's even rougher and more ragged than some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Edigsa/Wah Wah (Spain), 1966. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Rare 60s work from Brenner's Folk – a Spanish group who later changed their name to Pic Nic, and had a lot more success in that format! The style here is a bit folksy, but also recorded with a garagey style too – a nicely dark current that makes the male singer sound especially nice, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Changes Two
Parlophone, 1981. New Copy
The second great entry in the Changes series from David Bowie – and, like the first, a well-chosen array of tracks that really get at his creative genius as a pop star – which includes a few great titles from his post-Berlin years! The set does a great job of spanning the 70s – ... CD
Matador, 2018. New Copy 2LP
American avant rock treasures Yo La Tengo's 15th album, and no, it's not a covers set of the legendary, almost same-titled album by Sly & The Family Stone, but a murkily melodic, fuzzy, moody, beautiful set of songs as richly inspired by their myriad, oft-stated, readily-acknowledged influences ... LP, Vinyl record album
4AD (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
Seminal early work from The Cocteau Twins – the kind of record that made the group almost a genre unto themselves – even though so many later artists tried to copy their sound and style! The record is years ahead of its time, especially when you consider that it was produced in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Legacy, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Mindblowing lost work from Jimi Hendrix – studio tracks from the late 60s that were never issued at the time, brought together to make a completely sublime full length set! The package is way hipper and stronger than you might imagine – not studio snippets or replayed outtakes – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roxy Music
Capitol, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
LP...$22.99 24.99 (CD)
A mindblowing debut from Roxy Music – a record that took the world by storm in the 70s, and which is still pretty darn revolutionary all these many years later! Sure, the cover looks a bit cheesy and trashy, but the core of the music is amazing – this blistering array of guitars, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Weezer
Geffen, 1994. New Copy (reissue)
The debut album by Weezer! The now-dubbed Blue Album was released at the height of the post-Nirvana rock era, with whom the much more enthusiastic Weezer even shared label – and that very enthusiasm made them heroes to some and pariahs to others at the time. Now, of course, it's a classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
