Agitation Free —
Last ... LP Wah Wah (Spain), 1976. New Copy ...
The last album from the legendary early run of Agitation Free – and a set that definitely shows the group at the top of their game! The tracks are long, but never rambling – jamming, but never in a noodly way – and these guys really show why their contribution to German prog was ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the more obscure outings from the British underground folk scene at the start of the 70s – a set that's way way different than contemporary work on the bigger labels, and which sounds as if it was conceived and recorded a fair bit away from the mainstream! The instrumentation is a mix ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Bazali Bam look somewhat playful on the cover, but the record's got this darker intensity that points the way towards later experiments on the West African scene – with a blend of soul, funk, and psych elements that almost seem to be a precursor to Zamrock sounds! Yet the style here is a bit ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the weirdest, wildest records ever issued on the Vertigo label in the 70s – and that's saying a lot, given the reputation of the legendary imprint! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but most of the energy comes from longer-form musical progressions – sometimes more rhythmic ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
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, ... (Rock) read more7-inch, Vinyl record

Diane Denoir ... LP Discos De Planta/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
The debut album from Uruguayan singer Diane Denoir – served up with heavy help from Eduardo Mateo of the legendary group El Kinto! Like Mateo's work, the music here is a bit beyond easy comparison – in a rock or pop structure, but with lots of deeper ideas too – a bit like the ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The second and final album from New Zealand's Farmyard – a record that continues some of the jazzy spirit of their debut, but which also goes into territory that's a bit more rough and raw too! It's almost as if the group were getting their wind a bit more – and finding a way to make a ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Farmyard ... LP Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
An obscure jazzy group from the New Zealand scene of the early 70s – definitely a rock act at the core, but one who make wonderful use of flute and tenor from Andrew Stevens, who really helps give the record a special sound of its own! There's also some vibes, Indian percussion, and other ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – in a silkscreaned plastic shopping bag, just like the original!)
A record with a Donovan reference in the title, but a much more mod set overall – thanks to searing Hammond work from organist Mick Weaver, who was maybe one of the hippest London cats on his instrument at the time! The tunes draw equally from the Hammond soul jazz of artists like Jimmy ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Kennlisch ... LP Le Kiosque D'Orphee/Wah Wah (Spain), 1976. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully weird French album from the 70s – and like some of the other underground greats of the scene at the time, a record that feels very much out of step with the rest of the world! Kennlisch are the duo of brothers Jean-Francois and Philippe Machery – the former of whom plays ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Africa Roja ... LP Klamm/Wah Wah (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A really unusual group from an early 80s Spanish group – one who were born into more progressive territory in the 70s, but who also discovered more new wave experimentation and post-punk along the way to making this unique album from 1983! If we're honest, we'll say that there's a lot of the ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful work from a Spanish tenor saxophonist who would have been huge – had he been blowing in France, Germany, or other European scenes that got much more global exposure in the 60s! Instead, Salvador "Mantequilla" Fort is something of an overlooked treasure – a reedman ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare set of Spanish jazz from the 60s – quite a treasure, considering how little jazz we've heard from Spain at the time! The group's tremendous – soulful and modern, at a level that matches some of our favorite Italian combos of the same period – with this strong lead work ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
We're not sure who's the sage and who's the seer – Don Beckman or David Rea – but the duo are great here together, in a mode that's got this great post-folk blend of harmonies and really sweet tunes! The album came out on a tiny label back in the 60s, but it gets some great larger ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Sexedelic ... LP Metronome/Wah Wah (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic record that more than lives up to the promise of its title and cover – and a set that's gone onto legendary fame as part of the music used by director Jess Franco for his Vampyros Lesbos films! The music here comes from the German jazz scene of the early 70s – a sound ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Yan Tregger gave the world some funky sound library work in the 70s – but here, he's in much darker territory – definitely in the land of no return, which he explores with waves of really moody electronics! The tunes are still rhythmic – as with Yan's previous work – but ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A heady second set from New Zealand's Underdogs – a record that has the group reduced to a trio, yet somehow finding even more power in their overall sound! There's a nicely thoughtful approach to the music – not some of the full-on hard rock of other power trios of the time, but ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
