✨✧ Beach BoysBeach Boys 69 – Live In London ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ ... $8.99
The Beach Boys live in London at the end of the 60s – working here without Brian Wilson in tow – as indicated by a postcard addressed to him back home, displayed prominently on the front cover! Despite Brian's absence, the group's still in fine form – harmonically tight, and returning to a number of earlier themes in their songs – singing in front of what must clearly be a hugely enthusiastic crowd, if we're to judge by the applause. The concert was something of a reminder to the group that they had plenty to offer, even through Brian's ups and downs – and in a way, it really set the stage for the reputation and touring the group would do strongly in the 70s. Titles include "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", "God Only Knows", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "Aren't You Glad", "Do It Again", "Wake The World", "Darlin", and "Wouldn't It Be Nice".

✨✧ Beach BoysCarl & the Passions – So Tough/Holland ... CD
Brother/Capitol, 1972/1973. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
2 Beach Boys albums on 2CDs – plus the bonus ep of material from Holland. The Carl & The Passions album was supposed to be a back to basics rocker, but it's a bit weak from this vantage point – although has some of those nice little later numbers that we always seem to overlook when shuffling through BB albums too quickly. Holland is a much more impressive effort – as it kicks off with the sublime "Sail On Sailor", proof that the group were ready to forge a whole new sound of 70s pop, plus a nice mix of tight pop songs and looser Smile-like tracks. Titles include "The Trader", "Funky Pretty", "Only With You", and the "California Saga". The CD also includes "Mount Vernon & Fairway" – a "fairy tale" that was included with the original LP as a bonus ep. The work's interesting – especially in that it shows that the group could still be pretty trippy and experimental – but gosh, we really have a hard time getting through it! CD

Beach BoysFeel Flows – The Sunflower & Surf's Up Sessions 1969 to 1971 ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 21.99
A fantastic collection of work from The Beach Boys – a set that features two of our favorite albums from the group, plus lots of unreleased rare material! Sure, we love Pet Sounds and Smile – but year after year, we keep on finding new musical magic in the records Sunflower and Surf's Up – both done at a time when the group were grappling with the realities of adult life, changing cultural modes, and their own sense of mortality, both as human beings and pop stars. There's a wonderfully collaborative feel to the music here – all the other group members bringing a lot to the table, not just Brian – and that sensibility is so different than the earlier years of the group, and even different than the Brian-led moments of the mid 60s. If you've not heard these records, you'll be stunned – and if you love them as much as us, you'll love to hear all the bonus material included within! 2CD set features newly remastered versions of the albums Sunflower and Surf's Up – plus 23 bonus tracks that include "Loop De Loop (1969 mix)", "Susie Cincinnati (2019 mix)", "Two Can Play (2019 mix)", "I Just Got My Pay (2019 mix)", "Where Is She (2019 mix)", "This Whole World (alt ending)", "When Girls Get Together (2019 mix)", "Back Home (alt version)", "Add Some Music To Your Day (alt version)", "Good Time (2019 mix)", "It's A New Day", "Disney Girls (live 1982)", "Surf's Up (live 1973)", "Disney Girls (backing vocals excerpt)", "You Need A Mess Of Help To Stand Alone (track & backing vocals)", "All Of My Love/Ecology", "Sweet & Bitter", "My Solution", "Awake", "Behold The Night", "Live Again (extended 2019", "4th Of July (2019 mix)", and "Lady (1970 stereo mix)".

✨✧ Beach BoysFriends/20/20 (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... $8.99
An amazing little CD – one that features 2 of the best post-Smile Beach Boys albums in one package, plus some excellent bonus cuts too! Friends is a completely incredible record – one that's built around small, short, sweet songs that are almost an adult take on themes of relationships first explored in Pet Sounds – produced with a homier and more personal approach that's really great. Classics on the album include "Busy Doin Nothin", "Transcendental Meditation", "Little Bird", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Be Here In The Morning", "Friends", and "Wake The World". 20/20 is a slightly lesser album, but still pretty nice too – and is noteworthy as the repository of some bits that were destined to originally appear on Smile, and never made the Smiley Smile cut – as well as the genesis of some of the ideas that would come out more fully on the excellent Sunflower and Surf's Up albums. And in fact, if the Beach Boys had never cut another album, 20/20 would be a masterpiece – and it's only through comparison with their real classics that it only weakens a bit. Tracks include the sublime "Cabinessence", plus "Do It Again", "I Can Hear Music", "Be With Me", "All I Want To Do", "I Want To Sleep", and "The Nearest Faraway Place". And if that's not enough, the CD features excellent bonus cuts like "Break Away", "Celebrate The News", "We're Together Again", and a cover of "Walk On By"! CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. Used ... $3.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Also features bonus tracks "Unreleased Backgrounds", "Hang On To Your Ego", and "Trombone Dixie". CD

Beach BoysSmiley Smile/Wild Honey (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
Fantastic stuff! Smiley Smile is the issued version of Smile, a classic – and even though some may gripe that it's missing the 50% extra material that was supposed to be on the Smile set, it's still utterly fantastic! Titles include "Vegetables", "Heroes & Villains", "Fall", "Little Pad", "With Me Tonight", and "Wind Chimes". Wild Honey is a great lost album, too – one that has the Beach Boys going back to more stripped-down sounds, but still staying kind of odd and eerie, on tracks like "Let The Wind Blow", "I'd Love Just Once To See You", "Country Air", "Aren't You Glad", and "Here Comes The Night". CD also features 6 bonus tracks, including alternate takes from the Smile sessions! CD

This 27 track set features some real gems – like the original and German versions of "In My Room", the obscure "Surfer Moon", and the incredibly haunting "Warmth Of The Sun", one of the first real moments of genius from Brian Wilson. Other titles include a few oddball numbers – like "Denny's Drums" and "Cassius Love vs Sonny Wilson" – plus classics like "Fun Fun Fun", "Don't Worry Baby", "Keep An Eye On Summer", "Our Car Club", "Little Deuce Coup", and "Surfer Girl".

There's a mix of styles here – some rough rocking numbers that are a bit stiff, mixed with some really amazing tunes that get at Brian Wilson's new sensitivities – tunes like "Girl Don't Tell Me", "You're So Good To Me", "Summer Means New Love", and "Let Him Run Wild" – all complicated in subtle ways, with a great sense of tension underneath.

✨✧ Beastie BoysPaul's Boutique (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Capitol, 1989. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Beasties' masterpiece – and one of the original nightmares for sampling opponents everywhere – the cut & paste hip hop classic Paul's Boutique! The Dust Brothers unapologetic way of weaving very famous samples with soul, funk and film score obscurities would steal the show if not for the infectious, boisterous rhymes of the Beastie Boys – they couldn't possibly have cared less about alienating the massive frat boy fan base built with License To Ill, and it's a joy to behold. It's one of those mindblowing pop transformations on par with the Beatles (who the Beasties and Dust Brothers were so brazen to sample several times on this album) and the Beach Boys on the pop maturation scale from earlier hits to later artistry – even if the wild lyrics and deft back & forth rhymes by the Beasties aim to be the goofy antithesis of maturity. From classic rock dinosaurs to soul and disco classics, from the Jaws score to "Dueling Banjos", it all finds it's way into the beatcraft – and both mainstream pop and underground hip hop are better now because of this record. Tracks include "Hey Ladies", "Shake Your Rump", "High Plains Drifter", "Shadrach", "Johnny Ryall", "Eggman", "Car Thief", "What Comes Around", the "B-Boy Bouillabaisse" suite and more.

Columbia, 1970. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Chicago's second album – not as familiar as the first, and with some really great moments! The group is working here in the same extended-length format as on their debut, going for some more complicated tunes spread across the album's double length – jazzy riffing still firmly in place, and going for some vocal moments that almost have a nice Brother-era Beach Boys sound to them. Includes the great "Make Me Smile", plus the cuts "Poem For The People", "In The Country", "Wake Up Sunshine", "25 Or 6 To 4", "To Be Free", "Fancy Colours", "West Virginia Fantasies", "Where Do We Go From Here", and "Memories Of Love".

HondellsGo Little Honda/The Hondells ... CD
Mercury/T-Bird (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Two groovy records by The Hondells – a group who definitely love their Hondas! Go Little Honda's the first set – and although it's hard to believe there was a day when the word "Honda" referred exclusively to a motor bike – but that was the case, at the time the Hondells hit big with their groovy little title hit on this LP! As the album's cover attests, the group are all over the (then) popular bike – not entirely a motorcycle, not a scooter either – just perfect for jetting around the youthful scene of the early 60s! Tunes all have a strong surf-ish quality – great guitar work, catchy vocal hooks, and a presentation that owes plenty to The Beach Boys – but hey, that's more than OK with us! Titles include "Little Honda", "Haulin Honda", "Hot Rod High", "Rip's Bike", "Ridin Trails", and "Mean Streak". The Hondells has the group stretching out their vibe just slightly – still sticking strongly in the "I Get Around" territory of their other singles, but also taking on a few more themes, too – all with beautiful Beach Boys-esque charm! There's some great guitar instrumentals next to the vocal numbers – and titles include "The Rebel", "My Little Bike", "Night Rider", "Black Denim", "You're Gonna Ride With Me", "My Buddy Seat", and "Honda Holiday".

Illa J has long since proven his worth outside of the long shadow cast by his brother Dilla, but he's really come into his own now – doing more singing on this one without leaving rhymes behind, staying rooted in truthful Detroit hip soul despite relocating Montreal, and really laying down one quality, timeless track after another here. Includes "Intro (Turn It Up)" featuring Detroit fellow Dank, "Sam Cook", "I Know", "Photosynthesis", "Snow Beach", "Silencers" feat Moka Only, "Detroit Bad Boys", "Maureen", "Home" and "7 Mile". CD

Swell MapsMayday Signals ... CD
Easy Action, Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
An essential addition to the too-small catalog of work by the legendary Swell Maps – one of the most unique groups to emerge from the Brit punk years of the late 70s! If you know the Maps, you'll know that they're hardly punk at all – maybe punk-ish, but able to also open up all these stylistic currents that so many others would pick up in the following decade – mixing tuneful songs with noisier bits, and often using weird instruments and sounds alongside their bass, drums, and guitar! The material here all comes from the vaults of Jowe Head, and includes a lot of unissued material, unusual songs, and alternate recordings – all awash with fantastic touches from Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks. Titles include "Avalanche part 2", "Off The Beach", "Big Cake Over America", "Tibetan Bedsprings", "Shubunkin", "Pet's Corner", "Fashion Cult", "Organism", "Harvist", "Gramofonica", "Almost Grown", "City Boys (Dresden style)", "Bandits 1 to 5", and "Drop In The Ocean". 36 tracks in all!

Brian WilsonSmile (shadowbox version) ... CD
Nonesuch, Late 60s/2004. Used ... $59.99
An all new recording of the lost Beach Boys masterpiece! Brian notoriously sabotaged the original album by refusing to complete some sessions, and literally destroying the masters for others. Needless to say, an official release of the unearthed Beach Boys/Van Dyke Parks epic Smile – the most famous "lost" album in the history of recorded media – is sadly impossible. Of course many of the original Smile tracks filtered out onto subsequent underrated Beach Boys albums, mostly in unfinished (but still mindblowingly great) versions, due to Brian's meltdown. Nonesuch Records, Brian Wilson and his great 10 piece band have taken their best shot at a completed vision – and it works quite well! The old Smile tracks have the unassailable beauty brought about by Brian's painstaking, tortured efforts, and they were unquestionably influenced by his heavy intake of psychedelic chemicals. Now they have ProTools. Still, the cleared psyches and enhanced technical capabilities cannot hamper the bruised beauty these tunes had from conception, and it's been adapted very, very well even it doesn't quite carry the doomed genius of Brian's late 60s work. Comes in a great deluxe package with a thick booklet. Tracks include "Our Prayer/Gee", "Heroes & Villains", "Good Vibrations", "Roll Plymouth Rock", "Barnyard", "Old Cabin Essence", "Wonderful", "Surf's Up" and more. UK-only exclusive to Amazon.co.uk, comprises a white box with 3D shadowbox embedded in the lid containing a standard edition CD. This shadowbox is a recreation of the artwork from the centre pages of the album booklet and contains moving cardboard figures. CD

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
A great look at the changing tone on the American scene at the end of the 60s – that moment when Vietnam, social unrest, and many other problems weighed heavily on the country's consciousness – and made their presence manifest in all sorts of pop music as well! We're not talking about the familiar sounds of the Woodstock generation – but instead more mainstream artists who had never touched on politics or social issues before – but suddenly found themselves singing alongside the underground about the bigger problems of the day. This package is a superb look at that moment – put together by the team who've given us the great English Weather and Paris In The Spring collections for Ace – with the same care for choice of tracks, and a wealth of wonderful notes that really get at the nature of these unusual tunes. Titles include "Clean Up Your Own Back Yard" by Elvis Presley, "Wine In The Wind" by Anita Kerr Singers, "Paint Me Black Angels" by Eartha Kitt, "This Crazy World" by Paul Anka, "Questions" by Bobby Darin, "Do You Believe This Town" by Dean Martin, "Cardboard California" by Buddy Greco, "Cherrystones" by Eugene McDaniels, "Save The Children" by Teresa Brewer, "Welfare Hero" by Johnny Tillotson, "What Do We Do With The World" by Bing Crosby, "4th Of July" by The Beach Boys, "Mr Businessman" by Ray Stevens, "Paint America Love" by Lou Christie, "Hitchhiker" by The Four Preps, "Brand New Day" by Della Reese, "Saturday's Father" by The 4 Seasons, and "Southbound Jericho Parkway" by Roy Orbison.

Gammon, Mid 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very strange little album – one of those records that was created without any interest in an audience – but which has gone on to become the stuff of legend over time! The set features vocal performances by a group of rural school students recorded in the mid 70s – often performing alongside just a bit of sad-tinged piano or guitar, as they deliver these surprisingly compelling versions of songs from their generation – tunes by David Bowie, Wings, The Beach Boys, and others – in versions that are completely different than the originals. The whole thing's about as strange as you can imagine – and has had a huge amount of attention and followers over the years.

Aurum (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really cool look at albums that never happened – planned projects that were almost produced, but which fell apart at some point in the creative process – leading to a surprisingly large legacy of lost albums by some of rock music's biggest stars! Sure, everyone knows a few of these – like The Beach Boys' Smile – but this book opens the door to lots lots more – including projects by The Kinks, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Buffalo Springfield, Madonna, The Sex Pistols, Beastie Boys, and many more. Best of all, the book presents the albums almost as if they actually existed – in short sections within larger chapters that each feature an imagined cover, projected release dates, and a short section that tells the story of the record – which often features a "what happened next" sidebar to show where the creative process landed. The great presentation really helps illuminate the material – and the book is 256 pages, in color throughout. Book

✨✧ Captain & TennilleLove Will Keep Us Together ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Think what you want about Captain & Tennille – the set's a monumental bit of 70s pop, and one that found a way to push the 60s hipness of A&M Records to the next level! The set's got a mainstream polish, but it's the summation of all sorts of cool elements that had been bubbling under on the LA scene – not the least of which is the career of The Captain, aka Daryl Dragon – a guy with great experience in the studio, and a strong ear for a keyboard line too! The group tip their hat strongly to the Beach Boys – with a great reading of "Disney Girls", and a take of "God Only Knows" that's pretty darn nice too – next to the global hit "Love Will Keep Us Together", and other tunes that include "I Write The Songs", "Gentle Stranger", "Honey Come Love Me", and "The Good Songs". CD

✨✧ Chris RainbowLooking Over My Shoulder (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor/Big Pink (South Korea), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pure soft rock magic from Chris Rainbow – an under-recognized 70s genius, and an artist we'd rank right up there with some of the best AOR talents of the time! There's a warmly compressed feel to the whole record – a smooth, slinky groove that echoes the accomplishments of the Steely Dan generation, but which also retains just a bit of 60s sunniness in the lyrics of the tunes – especially in the way that Rainbow often uses multi-tracking to harmonize with himself, almost in ways that remind us of the Beach Boys' approach during the era – but much better. Titles include the great Brian Wilson tribute "Dear Brian", plus "Allnight", "You & I", "Gimme Just A Little Beat Of Your Heart", "Show Us The Sun", "Solid State Brain", "Dansette", and "Give Me What I Cry For".

✨✧ VariousDo Wah Diddy – Words & Music By Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A motherlode of classics from one of the best guy/girl songwriting teams of the 60s – the legendary pairing of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, both names that appeared on countless hits during the decade! The pair had a great way with a tune – often coming up with a gentle groove that kept things catchy, even when the lyrics could be blue – a balance that made most of their best work these little symphonies of soul and emotion, themes poised perfectly between the poles of joy and sadness. The set, like others in Ace's producer/writer series of 60s pop, does a great job of moving between different labels, different artists, and different styles to show the wide range of music touched by the genius of Barry & Greenwich – and like the rest, this one features full track-by-track details on the music, plus lots more notes on the pair. Titles include "True True Love" by Tony Pass, "Everybody Come Clap Your Hands" by Moody & The Deltas, "He Ain't No Angel" by The Ad Libs, "I Can Hear Music" by The Beach Boys, "Nobody But You" by The Tokens, "Little Boy" by Karen Verros, "I Hear You Say" by Andy Kim, "Hanky Panky" by The Summits, "What Have You Been Doing" by The Majors, "I Won't Be Me Anymore" by Vic Donna, "River Deep Mountain High" by Nilsson, "Do Wah Diddy" by The Exciters, "Baby Be Mine" by The Jelly Beans, "Hold On Baby" by Sam Hawkins, and "Maybe I Know" by Lesley Gore.

✨✧ VariousLet's Make Some Music – Sunshine, Soft, & Studio Pop 1966 to 1970 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A completely wonderful collection – filled with groovy tunes from the late 60s that we never would have discovered otherwise – overflowing with upbeat rhythms, harmony vocals, and the kind of warm pop rock glow that you'll know from the generation of Sunshine Pop! Think of this work as in the territory beyond the Beach Boys and early Bee Gees – sometimes fully orchestrated, sometimes with leaner arrangements – partly inspired by Cali modes of the mid 60s, but also taken to new, more sophisticated territory too! We always think we know territory like this very well, but the Teensville label always blows us away with their sense of fresh discovery – served up here on 33 tracks that include "Wind Up Chimes" by Jimmy Carter & The Broken Pieces, "Never Fade Away" by We In A Nutshell, "So Glad We Made It" by Graham Chapman, "Definitely Dixie" by Chain Reaction, "5:30 Plane" by Picardy, "The Skeleton On The Roundabout" by Kevin McCann, "Town Called Love" by Friend & Lover, "The Pleasure Of Her Company" by Chuck Woolery, "143rd Street Please Driver" by The Eighteenth Edition, "Roses & Rainbows" by The Unforscene, "You" by Byzantine Empire, "Autumn" by The Majority, "Every Boy In The Crowd" by Christopher, and "Early Morning Blues & Greens" by Sue Raney.

✨✧ VariousChartbusters USA – Sunshine Pop Special Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sunshine Pop from the top of the charts – a great look at some of the best-remembered tunes from this sweet 60s genre! Lots of other Sunshine Pop collections focus on the obscurities of the scene – but honestly, some of the hits really represent the best work of the groups included – the kind of sublime studio magic that few others could match back in the day – catchy pop, but with a darker psych undercurrent – all wrapped up with wonderful vocals and some really groovy instrumentation! There's plenty here you'll recognize – the kind of cuts that always make you sit up and take notice on an oldies radio show, but which you can never remember the artist. Titles include "Younger Girl" by The Critters, "It's Getting Better" by Mama Cass, "I Could Be So Good To You" by Don & The Goodtimers, "She Lets Her Hair Down" by The Tokens, "A Girl Like You" by The Young Rascals, "Darlin" by The Beach Boys, "If You Don't Want My Love" by Robert John, "Morning Girl" by The Neon Philharmonic, "Back On The Street Again" by The Sunshine Company, "Anything Goes" by Harpers Bizarre, "Love" by Mercy, "The Rain The Park & Other Things" by The Cowsills, "The River Is Wide" by The Forum, and "Look At Me Girl" by Bobby Vee & The Strangers. 26 tracks in all – with a great set of notes!

✨✧ Five AmericansWestern Union (gold vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Abnak, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Genius jangle pop from the 60s – great harmonies, tight guitars, and a sound that's familiar but always fresh – the kind of record that should have rivaled bigger hits by The Monkees or Strawberry Alarm Clock! The Five Americans were an incredibly tight group even for their time – a combo who'd learned lessons from The Beach Boys, but kept the rougher energy of their Texas scene – in a way that mixed sweetness with edges, and managed to do a tremendous amount with very little instrumentation or larger arrangements. Titles include the sublime hit "Western Union" – which is followed by a really fresh-voiced batch of tracks that include "Husbands & Wives", "Big Cities", "Sound Of Love", "Tell Ann I Love Her", and "Sympathy".

VariousLadies Choice – The Pen Of Swan Records (mono blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Swan/Sundazed, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 25.99
A wonderful collection of work from Swan Records – the legendary Philly indie who was one of the city's first great sources of rock, pop, and soul – presented here in a special focus on female artists who recorded for the label! The package has some very well-chosen cuts – as a number of these were issued only as promo singles, which makes the whole thing essential even if you've got other Swan work in your collection – and even better as an introduction to girl singers and groups who were first beginning to forge the Philly sound! Titles include "Ladies Choice" by Patty Saturday, "Laughin" by Ginger Davis & The Snaps, "My Special Boy" by Kathy Lynn & The Playboys, "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch" by The Tomboys, "Where Is Johnny Now" by The Sapphires, "Nothin Much Tom Cat" by Ruth & Sherry, "He's Mine" by The Swans, "Hang It Up" by Joy Dawn, "Gonna Find The Right Boy" by Audrey Slo, "When He Comes Along" by The McKinleys, and the unissued cut "Bongos On The Beach" by The Three Degrees.
