Immediate (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal statement from the legendary Small Faces – a record that has them regrouping a bit, and finding a way to pack an incredible punch! The album's amazing right from the very first note – a perfect bridge between the ongoing mod energy of the London scene, and the psychedelic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Anthology/Kemado, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Darkness-tinged folk rock from FJ McMahon – one of those records that disappeared almost immediately upon release, but which has a vibe that should have made it a classic with the hipper crowd at the time! The record's got a depth that's quite different than any sort of the poppy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the grooviest Nuggets compilations we've seen in years – full of west coast pop psych gems circa '67 & '68 for the most part – with deep cuts by legends and some real obscurities, too! Includes some great tunes by beloved scenesters of the time like West Coast Pop Art ... LP, Vinyl record album
CBS/Real Gone, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
The dramatic return of the Slits – sounding incredible here on this second album! The set's not as rough and ragged as their first effort – but is still also fairly groundbreaking stuff – mixing up dub and post-punk styles with an almost British avant sensibility that has 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
Enterprise/Stax, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
One of the few rare rock albums issued on the Enterprise sub-label of Stax – and like a lot of the rest, a set that was produced by the legendary Don Nix! The groove here is a rootsy blend of rock and R&B influences – served up with heavy Hammond amidst fuzzy guitar, bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rhino, 1967. New Copy
A very cool collection of sounds that shaped the world during the Summer of Love in 1967 – music that's partly rock, partly pop, with bits of psych and soul in the mix as well! The collection was put together by Warner Brothers as part of their Summer of Love vinyl reissues series – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire/Rhino, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The Ramones really caught their classic recorded sound for the first time on Leave Home – the second of their three perfect late 70s milestones. As amazing as the debut is, its two-channel shrieking buzz saw sound bowed nicely to the slightly more digestible but just as cathartic roar of the ... CD
Atco/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge! The set's mighty trippy – and often offers up very weird, fuzzy remakes of songs that were more mainstream hits for other artists in the 60s – tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kapp/Sundazed, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Beautifully sweet and folksy work from Linda Perhacs – a singer with a heavenly voice, and a wonderful songwriting talent to match! The record's nicely free from the cliches of some of Linda's contemporaries – as it's got a gently flowing quality that never forces things too much ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rods N Ratfinks
Capitol/Sundazed, 1964. New Copy
An incredibly groovy record from the LA scene of the 60s – part of a trio of cool Capitol sets with cover art by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth – all put together by studio genius Gary Usher! The tunes here are all originals – jaunty numbers with a definite hot rod vibe, but with ... CD
Columbia/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the most incredible rock albums of all time – Dylan's sprawling, shambling, poetic genius at it's most revolutionary if you ask us – the landmark Blonde On Blonde! It's got that surrealistic, 4AM and still bursting with creativity kind of feeling that he'd never even try to find ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece of early electric Dylan – and one easily one of the most pivotal recordings of the 60s in any genre! featuring classics like "Subterranean Homesick Blues", "Maggie's Farm", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Gates Of Eden", "It's All Over Now, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smash/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
The second album from The Left Banke – that most incredible group who managed to knockout a couple big hits, yet somehow got relegated to "cult" status – and this album is nearly as wonderful as Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina! This one might even be more impressive for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Legacy, Early/Mid 50s. New Copy 3CD
A treasure trove of early Elvis recordings – a set the goes deeper into the nascent, pre-pop culture mania, and right into the heart and soul of "A Boy From Tupelo" who really had the voice and charisma of a king – mania, hype and a half century of merchandising be damned! ... CD
Elektra/Record Store Day, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
The rare, long unreleased Television live album! Recorded at San Francisco's Old Waldorf in the summer of 1978, on the one-and-only US tour the band ever did as a headliner in their original 70s run, it's a revelatory and all too rare treasure. Television's well-known legacy as a mainstay in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
McKenna Mendelson Blues
Pacemaker Entertainment/Lion, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Late 60s work from Michael McKenna and Joe Mendleson – working here in a punchy, hard charging and fiery bluesy rock mode for the McKenna Mendelson Blues set! The group was fairly short lived, and otherwise known as Mainline – but this set puts the bluesy tendencies right out front, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner/Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy
A great dip into the earliest, headiest years of the Grateful Dead – served up here in a set that brings together cuts from their first three albums, plus a single as well! The mix of modes here is still mindblowing after all these many years – and even after all the later cliches of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deram/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Sweet jangle pop from Amen Corner – one of the sunniest UK groups of the late 60s! The group checked in big with their hit "Bend Me Shape Me" – and follow through here with an equally catchy, equally groovy set of tracks – tunes that really let them move past the ... CD
