The great, too seldom heard full 12" version of New Order's "Temptation" – a classic that never gets old! Not that there's ever been a thing wrong with the single edit, but the stretched out, elongatated rhythmic bliss of the longer version is a trip worth revisiting, and " ... read more12-inch, Vinyl record

A wild mix of free jazz and fuzzy rock – played by a groundbreaking Japanese group who mix flute and saxes with heavy Hammond and plenty of guitar!

A pretty tight little album from Nick Waterhouse – and even though his conga's apparently getting stolen in the cover phot, he's got more than enough of a combo to make up for that loss! The groove here is in a place between vintage soul and garagey rock – maybe garage soul, with Nick's ... (Deep Funk, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career. While the overly arch Times They Are A Changin' pretty much stood as the cornerstone of classifiable folk rock at the time, Another Side is just that.
