Rocket, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Philadelphia Freedom from Elton John – a trio of tracks recorded with legendary Philly Soul producer Thom Bell, all with a Sigma Sound vibe that's quite different than most of John's other work at the time! In fact, although these tracks were recorded right at the height of the disco era, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Wheel
Coburt/Zeitgeist, 1970. New Copy
A trippy gem from Bernie Schwartz – a figure who'd spent a number of years in the LA musical underground before stepping out in this solo set – which has a depth that belies all Bernie's experience on the scene! There's a heady vibe to the record that almost feels more like some of the ... CD

Dreamer Of Life
Favorite (France), 1976. New Copy
A rare smooth 70s set from Hawaii – and a record that's even better musically than it is obscure! Greg Yoder had already won us completely when we flipped the album over and saw that he does a version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady" – alongside really fresh remakes of "M ... CD

Easter Everywhere
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Raw early genius from the 13th Floor Elevators – cut back at a time when the Texas combo were one of the hippest things going in the late 60s American underground! There's lots of sounds here that other cats would copy over the decades – but the record has a gritty brilliance that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Drop the "more" here, and just focus on the greatness of the tunes – as the collection's hardly a second chapter or additional thought – and instead stands more than strongly on its own! The work here all comes from a surprisingly deep source – a flurry of labels headed ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fraternity/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Lonnie Mack's a hell of a guitarist, and one who never sounded better than on these early recordings for the Fraternity label – presented here in a hugely expanded version of the 70s album that first issued the long-overdue 60s sides, along with a fair bit of unissued tracks! Mack plays with ... CD

What Me Worry?
Cramps (Italy), 1976. New Copy
CD...$6.99 14.99
One of the more obscure 70s albums on the legendary Cramps Records label – recorded by a group who are more rock than others on the imprint, but still more than creative enough to be in their company! The tunes often have English language lyrics, and some acoustic guitar currents to warm ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cramps (Italy), 1979. New Copy 2 CDs
CD...$6.99 24.99
A huge gathering of musicians and music lovers – all brought together in memory of singer Demetrio Stratos, who passed away unexpectedly in 1979! The stylistic range is as huge as the audience – who appear to number in the tens of thousands in the photo on the back cover – and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Fantastic girl pop from mid 60s London – tunes that go way past the sweeter hit modes of singers like Petula Clark and Sandie Shaw – and which often have some surprisingly soulful currents, too! All the work here is from the Pye Records studios of the time – a very groovy label ... CD

Ame Debout
Philips (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
The long hair and casual image on the cover really says a lot about the sound of the record – as vocalist Catherine Ribeiro works here with some very open, experimental grooves from Alpes – all at a level that has that freewheeling, open-minded sound of the French scene at the time! A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paix
Philips (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of those key records that shows the really unique side of the French scene at the start of the 70s – an underground world that was a bit hippie, certainly trippy, and very open to other ideas too – wrapped up in a sound that was both cosmic and intellectual at the same time! ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rhino, 1968/1995. New Copy
The Bee Gees original "I Started A Joke" is a 60s pop masterpiece – the kind of little symphony that the group did so well at the start! Faith No More definitely take a few liberties with the tune on their version from 1995 – but in a way that makes for a nicely playful ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/Munster (Spain), 1965. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A really cool combination of elements on this rare UK single – an obscure group that features a young Steve Howe (later of Yes) on guitar, working on their own take on a Ben E King song by Lieber and Stoller – all produced with lots of cool studio touches by the great Joe Meek! 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
HMV/Round 2 (Norway), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
The one and only album from Norway's Firebeats Inc – a set that barely made a dent in the 60s, but which has gone onto have legendary status over the years! The album's got a groove that's partially borrowed from the Brit Beat combos of the time – but also has this harder edge ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Clear Spot (180 gram pressing)
Reprise, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe not as nuts as some earlier work by Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – but a pretty damn great record nonetheless – especially when compared to most of what was hitting the record racks in 1972! The Captain's still got all his wild and unbridled elements fully in place ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Polydor, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
The one astounding studio album of proto punk/abrasive psych genius from the Monks – a true masterpiece if their ever was one, a record that's been ripped off by myriad more famous groups in both the mainstream and rock underground of the past 40 years! The group's status as discharged G.I.' ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
On Records, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A heady bit of mid-70s psych from Connecticut – the second album from Dr Hooker Band – recorded in 1974, but not issued until many years later! The album's a true treasure that deserves wider recognition – at some level as heady as any of the best known indie psych sets from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There' ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atlantic, 1973. New Copy Gatefold
Led Zeppelin at peak power – mixing hard rock bombast with deep, genuine love for blues and folk guitars! Houses Of The Holy is the essential the blueprint for countless imitators to come – but it's also got smarts, subtleties and creative ambitious that's just plain lost on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Melanie
Buddah/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy
A seminal self-titled set from Melanie – an album that's still proudly folk in some parts, while also embracing some of the more hard-edge styles of some of her contemporaries too – echoes of soul in some of the rhythms, a bit of grit in the instrumentation – which really seems to ... CD
