Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Harry Nilsson may be best-remembered for a hit that he sang penned by Fred Neill – but the man himself was a hell of a songwriter in the 60s – with an incredible approach to a tune that was unlike any of his contemporaries! Nilsson could be both sweet and nostalgic and slightly wry at ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Peggy March is a singer with a surprisingly varied career – an artist that most folks know for only her early little girl pop fame – but one who went onto record a very unusual range of sounds as the 60s moved on! RCA was her label, and while she never hit the heights of the charts ... CD
dBpm, 2017. New Copy
Jeff Tweedy together at last with just his own acoustic guitar, voice and occasional harmonica – doing songs from the classic Wilco canon plus comparable rarities from his Golden Smog and Loose Fur side projects – really casting these great songs in a wonderfully intimate light! If you'v ... LP, Vinyl record album
Einfluss
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
A beautiful collaboration between two different generations of German music – the legendary Hans Joachim Roedelius, whose albums of the 70s set a whole new standard for minimalism, both on his own, and with the group Cluster – and younger pianist Arnold Kasar, who turns out to be a ... CD
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy (pic cover)
Dion's looking pretty radical on the cover of this single – and he's sounding pretty radical, too – picking up an electrified folk rock vibe that's almost a bit like the turn that Bob Dylan was also taking in 1965! The change is no surprise, given that Dylan and Dion were both ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Together At Last
dBpm, 2017. New Copy
Jeff Tweedy together at last with just his own acoustic guitar, voice and occasional harmonica – doing songs from the classic Wilco canon plus comparable rarities from his Golden Smog and Loose Fur side projects – really casting these great songs in a wonderfully intimate light! If you'v ... CD
Idiot
RCA/Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Iggy's second solo LP proper, and a strange morass of junkie desperation and gutteral white punk funk – a conscious decision to move away from the guitar roar of the Stooges era and closer to the sounds his longtime champion David Bowie was experimenting with at the time, with a little bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lust For Life
RCA/Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Iggy Pop may have left The Stooges behind, but he's lost none of his edge – and really finds a new level of solo greatness on this sublime classic from the 70s! The set was produced by David Bowie, who also plays piano on the set – and has Carlos Alamar adding in some guitar – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
Pure genius from John Martyn – an artist who started out in folk music, and then opened up to jazzier and more electric styles in the 70s – but always with a quality that set him apart from most of his contemporaries! This beautiful package features Martyn at the core – early ... CD
Capitol/Apple, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had ... LP, Vinyl record album
Third Man, 1967. New Copy
The last slice of work to be released from the incredible Monks – a group of American servicemen who rocked the German scene in the mid 60s – and have gone onto become the stuff of legend over the years! The group's Polydor recordings have been issued and reissued many times – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia/Universal, 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
An album with a very mod-looking cover – and a set that's also overflowing with lots of mod-styled tracks to match – a cool current of soul from the 60s, but still handled with the sharper 70s vibe of young Attractions! Production is by Nick Lowe – and although The Jam were also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Armed Forces (180 gram pressing)
Columbia/Universal, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Prime Elvis Costello work from his early run with The Attractions – a set that's overflowing with tunes that are catchy yet biting, and which get superb production from Nick Lowe! Titles include "Oliver's Army", "Green Shirt", "Party Girl", "Good Squad" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trust (180 gram pressing)
Columbia/Universal, 1981. New Copy (reissue)
Essential old school Elvis Costello from the peak years of the Attractions era! Trust is one of the earliest albums in which Costello started to shake the punkish roots off just a bit, adding a bit more of his sock soul influences into his patented power pop. Tracks include "Clubland", ... LP, Vinyl record album
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD
One of the crowning achievements of The Turtles – a set that features all original material by members of the group, and stellar production by Ray Davies of The Kinks! The set's the only full length that Davies ever handled – and it's obvious the group really rose to the occasion for ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD
The last Turtles album on the White Whale label – but a set that's actually made up of unreleased material the group recorded for the company during their earlier years! And yet, despite that fact, there's a really heady vibe to the whole thing – maybe because the material was too ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy 2CD
A seminal second set from The Turtles – and a record that really has them sharpening up their sound! The songwriting is smarter than before, and the group's also developing the wit that would really set them apart from the rest of the west coast scene of the 60s – that mode of stepping ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic debut from The Turtles – and the kind of rock-solid set that shows that the group had so much more to offer than just a few hits that got overplayed on oldies radio! There's a wonderful blend here of folk currents and garage jangle – almost like The Byrds right around the ... CD
Rose Colored Corner
Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy Gatefold
Never-heard sounds from Lynn Castle – a singer who was maybe more famous in 60s LA for her work as a hair stylist – even though she spent her free time turning out really beautiful songs like these! Castle only ever issued one 45 on Lee Hazlewood's label – but the work here is ... LP, Vinyl record album
