Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
A set that's every bit as wonderful as you'd guess from its title and cover – a killer package of all-girl rockers, and one that's filled with rare gems from the 60s! The material here is definitely a lot harder-hitting than more familiar girl group sounds of the 60s – as the tunes are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ralph/Crammed (Belgium), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of our favorite records ever from Tuxedomoon – a set that has them nicely honing their rawer roots into a focused sound that was perfect for the European scene they were set to conquer! The set is the group's last recording before departing their San Francisco roots – a strange ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chiswick (UK), 1977. New Copy
A classic debut from The Radiators From Space – a group who were contemporaries to the first wave of British punk, but who found a special raw sound that was all their own! In a way, the sound here is almost the earlier pub rock generation spun through the noisier modes allowed by punk ... CD
Kids – Original Soundtrack (colored vinyl)
London, 1995. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal soundtrack for a legendary film – music that was made to accompany the riveting story by Larry Clark – but a record that also stood as a big message to the mainstream from the underground! The well-chosen array of groups here burst strongly into larger appreciation, thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sire/Rhino, 1977. New Copy 3CD & LP (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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy
A jazz rock masterpiece from Colosseum – the kind of record that the British scene could do far far better than any American group at the time! The set is a sweet blend of late beat group grooving – using the heavy R&B-influenced guitar and organ styles of earlier years, and ... CD
Esoteric (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy
Fantastic work from Colosseum – a pair of records that really stand out as completely unique hybrids from the British jazz rock years! Although Colosseum are probably best known as a progressive band, they certainly had plenty of jazz touches – and Valentyne Suite spawned the great ... CD
Reprise/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
An early moment of genius from The Electric Prunes – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were a cut above their contemporaries, and why Warner really backed them strongly right from the start! There's a depth here that rivals some of the group's Sunset Strip contemporaries ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
Rose Colored Corner
Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy
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 ... CD

Apple/Secretly Canadian, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Maybe one of the first truly tuneful moments from Yoko Ono – working here with backing from the Elephants Memory group – on a double-length set that shows a really great range from the singer! Yoko's vocals are fragile and sometimes a bit strained in the traditionally structured song ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fire (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)
The could have been bigger than the Beatles, but sadly they never came close – and instead, Television Personalities went on to become one of those great secrets from the British scene of the post-punk years – one of those groups that folks in the know always knew, which also includes a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Goodbye Future
Interchord/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of those amazing groups from the early 70s German scene – the kind of outfit who were doomed to failure right from the start, but didn't ever let that stop them from making some incredible music! The sounds here came about as a result of the dwindling Tomorrow's Gift lineup woodshedding ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/1972, 1999. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Stereolab at their peak – still the mindblowing swirl of older elements from the past – with references to old moog records, French pop, and a bazillion other things streaming through their ears – but also refined and given a bit more vision, too – as the group masterfully ... LP, Vinyl record album
