✨✧ BeatlesAbbey Road ... LP
Apple, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mid 70s red label Capitol pressing.)

BeatlesBeatles – The White Album ... LP
Apple, 1968. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $99.99
The Beatles at their late best – on 1968's self-titled set – now immortalized as The White Album! The White Album capped offed a period of intense creativity for the band with a double that's as freewheeling as anything they'd ever release. It's got raw rockers with wry lyricism, tender acoustic balladry, psych blues jams and some flat out weird bits. As was always the case, John's and Paul's songs cover the majority of the sides, but The White Album also features what's arguably George's most vital moment as a Beatle with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Other tracks include "Back InThe USSR", "Dear Prudence","Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "Martha My Dear", "Rocky Raccoon", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Julia", "Yer Blues", "Sexy Sadie", "Helter Skelter", "Revolution 1", Good Night" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Later UK stereo pressing in an un-numbered embossed glossy cover, including the poster. Cover has an unglued top seam, light wear, and some slight chipping at the opening.)

BeatlesChristmas Collection (7 x 7-inch picture disc set) ... 7-inch
Official Beatles Fan Club (UK), 1960s. Near Mint- 7 x 7" Set ... $299.99
Limited binder-style set featuring picture disc pressings of some of the coolest music The Beatles ever recorded – a series of sides from special 7" singles that were originally sent only to members of their 60s fan club – and never saw commercial release at the time! Given that the music here documents a year-by-year visit with the group, the approach is one that definitely shows their transformation over a few short years – from the witty, quippy Fab Four of the first few years, to the more intellectual lads of the mid 60s, to the way-out cats of the final years – a time when the Christmas singles turned more into sonic experiments, with maybe a bit of Monty Python humor in the mix! There's definitely some music here, but it's second to the presence of the group – saying "hi", telling jokes, and showing a side of themselves you're not likely to otherwise hear on record. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Early 80s Fan Club issue, limited edition #14/1000! Outer case has some light smudges, in great shape otherwise!)

Capitol/Apple, 1965. Used ... $5.99
A great little record that's kind of a prequel for Rubber Soul – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that we always forget about, until we drop the needle – the revel in its sweet blend of Beatles modes on tracks that include "Help", "The Night Before", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "I've Just Seen A Face", "Yesterday", "Act Naturally", "It's Only Love", "Ticket To Ride", and "I Need You". Original 14 track UK lineup – much different than the American release! CD

Apple, 1970. Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together! There's great hints here of the solo work to come – especially from George Harrison and John Lennon – and the Phil Spector production really helps open up a new sound for the group. Includes the genius cuts "I Dig A Pony", "Two Of Us", "Across The Universe", "I Me Mine", "One After 909", "For You Blue", and "Let It Be". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $39.99
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess! The set's incredibly strong throughout – filled with some of the new post-Peppers ideas explored by the group, yet also with some catchier numbers too – great sing-songy tracks that undoubtedly were a big mainstream influence to the world of late 60s psych! Titles include "Blue Jay Way", "The Fool On The Hill", "Flying", "Strawberry Fields Forever", "Penny Lane", and "Baby You're A Rich Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". This is also an enhanced version that includes a mini-Revolver documentary. CD

The mix of catchy pop and freer ideas here is really wonderful – tunes that introduce a whole new mature world in mainstream music – yet manage to have all the catchy complexity of the earlier years too. Production, songwriting, and delivery is superb – and this version features 14 songs that include "Drive My Car", "Norwegian Wood", "Nowhere Man", "Think For Yourself", "The Word", "What Goes On", "Girl", "I'm Looking Through You", and "Run For Your Life"".

Features a bunch of classics, and it ultimately holds together better creatively than some of their other US-only LP – but it also encapsulates a fascinating period in Beatles history, summing up end months of their middle period, very soon to segue into more psychedelic territory. Includes "Nowhere Man", "Drive My Car", "Dr Robert", "Act Naturally", "Day Tripper", "And Your Bird Can Sing", and "If I Needed Someone". LP, Vinyl record album

Apple, Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The Beatles live at the BBC – heard here in a host of rare recordings that were done between March 1962 and June 1965 – pulled from the vaults of the legendary radio station, and with a few cool dialogue bits too! The versions here were all played live on the air, and make for some much-needed alternate takes on the big hits by the Fab Four – and a few American numbers that really show the influence of other styles on their early sound. And since the recordings were done in a top-shelf studio, they're not muddy concert recordings – but actually feel more like some lost EMI studio material from the same period. 71 titles in all – including "Nothin Shakin", "The Hippy Hippy Shake", "Glad All Over", "Rock & Roll Music", "Ticket To Ride", "Ooh My Soul", "Don't Ever Change", "Slow Down", "Matchbox", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "The Honeymoon Song", "Lucille", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Taste Of Honey", "From Us To You", "I Got A Woman", "I'll Be On My Way", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Some Other Guy", "Soldier Of Love", and "Clarabella".

Heavy Brazilian rock and roll from the pre-Tropicalia generation! Os Incriveis were a tight little rock group that were part of the Jovem Guarda era – and they played with a fuzzed-out hard-rocking sound that recalls some of the grooviest American garage rock acts from the time. There's some great fuzzy guitar work on the record, cool organ, and a bit of innocent harmonies on some of the best tracks. Titles include Brazilian versions of "The Millionaire", "Hideaway", "Don't Worry Baby", "Delilah Jones", "You Know What I Want", "Molambo", "Missing You", and "My Prayer". CD

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An explosive look at the mighty songwriting legacy of The Beatles – served up here in a giant 3CD package that features the group's famous songs covered by a whole group of their contemporaries on the UK scene! You'd think that most of these artists might be jealous, or resentful – not wanting to give a nod to the songwriting skills of Lennon, McCartney, or Harrison – but instead, they really revel in the tunes – often really transforming them, and completely making them their own – in ways that follow some of the best inspirations of the new psych generation, and which make the whole collection a lot better than just some straight rehash of hits by the fab four! The song selection is brilliant – dozens of tracks that we never would have heard otherwise – and as with all Grapefruit packages like this, the whole thing comes with a detailed booklet of notes on the music – way more information than you'd find even if you spent the whole day searching online. 68 tracks in all – with work from The Sorrows, Ice, The Spectrum, Real McCoy, The Eyes, Loose Ends, Rainbow Ffolly, Affinity, Yes, Blonde On Blonde, Spooky Tooth, Big Jim Sullivan, The Gods, Orange Bicycle, The Tremeloes, Jason Crest, Tomorrow, Circus, The Hollies, Camel, and many others!

AppleApple A Day (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Page One/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
There's an apple on the cover, and an apple in the name – and this British group Apple maybe owes a bit to late 60s Beatles material on Apple Records – but only in the way that they both had greatness recorded during the same time period! Apple are maybe a bit more lean, with some of the mix of psych and beat group elements that we love in The Creation – tunes that are short, focused, and catchy – but which also pack plenty into a small space too – maybe also like the energy of The Move at their start! The production is great – lots of nice stuff happening around the edges, which sounds especially great on the strong piano lines that dominate many tunes – really making the group sound a bit different than other groups that lead with the guitar – although Apple has plenty of greatness in that aspect too! Titles include "Let's Take A Trip Down The Rhine", "Doctor Rock", "The Otherside", "Mr. Jones", "Queen Of Hearts Blues", "Rock Me Baby", "Buffalo Billycan", "Psycho Daisies", and "Pretty Girl I Love You". CD features bonus tracks – mono single versions of "Buffalo Billycan", "The Otherside", "Doctor Rock", and "Let's Take A Trip Down The Rhine". CD

Barclay James HarvestBarclay James Harvest & Other Short Stories (2CD/DVD set) ... CD
Harvest/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $29.99
A really beautiful record from Barclay James Harvest – a down to earth group at the core, but one who always manage to really unfold their ideas amidst some perfect production and great use of larger arrangements too! There's almost a late Beatles genius to the record at times – at least in the way that the sounds come together in the mix – but the core energy is very much the group's own, a mixture of free flowing tunes that maybe reflect their long-haired look on the cover – but without any hippie sense of overindulgence or self-centered execution! The blend is a bit hard to pin down in words, but it's what made BJH one of the most distinct groups of their generation – maybe at a level that's had them a bit forgotten over the years, but also wonderfully ripe for rediscovery. Titles include "Someone There You Know", "Harry's Song", "Little Lapwing", "After The Day", "The Poet", and "Medicine Man". This amazing package features lots of bonus material – a remastered original stereo mix on CD1, a new stereo mix on CD 2, and a surround mix with the other two mixes on the DVD! Plus, there's bonus tracks that include demos of "Hymn To A White Lady" and "Brave New World" – and US album versions of "Medicine Man", "Harry's Song", and "Someone There You Know" – issued on CD for the first time. There's also rough mono reductions of Abbey Road recordings of a few songs, and five more tracks from a BBC Radio Bob Harris Show. Box set includes a huge booklet of notes and rare photos – and a bonus poster reproduction too. CD

Beau BrummelsIntroducing The Beau Brummels ... LP
Autumn, 1965. Very Good- ... $19.99
The first full album from The Beau Brummels – an early Autumn Records effort before their headier days at Warner – cut with a style that could well make the group a key force to stop the British Invasion of the 60s! There's a great sense of jangle-pop throughout – a slight twang that would later unfold in different ways in Bradley's Barn, but which here works to give the tunes this little sense of sadness amidst the warmer melodies – which themselves are particularly great, and much better-crafted than some of the other US groups of this nature at the time. The boys definitely borrow a bit from The Beatles (including a name that gave them placement right next to the fab four in the record racks) – but maybe they're also drawing on some of the folk harmony groups from the SF scene they called home, too. Titles include "Laugh Laugh", "Just A Little", "Oh Lonesome Me", "They'll Make You Cry", "Stick Like Glue", "Not Too Long Ago", and "I Want More Loving". LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonOther Side Of Abbey Road ... LP
CTI/Friday Music, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 33.99
A wonderfully wicked album – one that sold so many copies that it's sometimes hard to remember how great it is! George takes on all of Abbey Road – or just about all of it – as he runs through some of the most beautiful tracks The Beatles ever wrote, like "Golden Slumbers", "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", "The End", "Because", and "You Never Give Me Your Money". The whole thing's set to some great baroque jazzy arrangements by Don Sebesky, and George digs the whole thing so much that he even sings a bit – vocalizing in a cool chromatic way that really works well with his guitar playing, and which would soon transform into a very popular style on his records of the 70s. Keyboards are by Bob James and Herbie Hancock – and there's plenty of other great jazz players in the mix! LP, Vinyl record album

Creepy John Thomas/RustTrippin Like A Dog & Rockin Like A Bitch – The Complete Recordings (Come With Me/Creepy John Thomas/Brother Bat Bone) (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1969/1971. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Three full albums from Australian singer Creepy John Thomas – all of them pretty darn great! The set begins with a record issued under the name of Rust – a set recorded in Germany, by Australian singer John Thomas – all quickly put together in the studio, but with results that are surprisingly great! The group have a psychedelic look on the cover, but are more old school rockers with some late 60s twists – some Beatles-esque arrangements on a few tracks, freakier vocals on a few others, and this stunning ability to move between styles while still making the record feel very unified overall. The whole thing's wonderful – filled with catchy tunes and madder moments – titles that include "Delusion", "Come With Me", "Find A Hideaway", "The Endless Struggle", "Please Return", and "Should I". Next is the self-titled Creepy John Thomas album – a stunning set from Aussie singer John Thomas – billed here as Creepy John Thomas, a name that was supposed to invoke older blues roots while also pitching the whole thing to the weirder, wilder, wiggier generation at the end of the 60s! In truth, there's very little blues rock here at the forefront – maybe in part because the album's an early production effort by Conny Plank – who does a great job bringing out all these odd sounds from familiar elements – so that the fuzzy guitar and heavy bass can get weird and moody at times, even when the song structure might be relatively tight. The driving force, though, is Creepy John – the kind of singer who should have been part of some supergroup at the start of the 70s – but who's maybe even better as one of rock's great under-discovered lesser-rans. Titles include "Sun & Woman", "Bring Back The Love", "Ride A Rainbow", "You've Got To Hide", "Gut Runs Great Stone", "Do I Figure In Your Life", "Moon & Eyes Song", and "Trippin Like A Dog & Rockin Like A Bitch". Last up is Brother Bat Bone – a real gem from the overlooked Creepy John Thomas – a record that evokes familiar blues rock styles, but with a much trippier sound overall – as you might guess from the image on the cover! Creepy John plays acoustic and electric guitar – with qualities that are even stronger than his previous records, and which lead to the longs being longer, with some surprisingly great solo parts – which are then topped by those raw, nasty vocals that always made Thomas such a budding talent at the time! There's a complexity here that's really surprisingly – the guitar work alone is wonderful, and all the rest is really just icing on the cake – on titles that include "This Is My Body", "Standin In The Sunshine", "100lb Noomy", "What's The Matter With The Mill", and "Down In The Bottom".

Ralph J GleasonMusic In The Air (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
Ralph J Gleason might just be one of the coolest cats to ever write about music – a key part of the San Francisco scene during the postwar years – where his talents helped illuminate both the worlds of art and music during the beat generation – then really helped shine a spotlight on all the cultural changes in the city during the 60s – which even led to Gleason's role in the founding of Rolling Stone magazine! Gleason always had a great eye (and ear) for things that were new and special, but never in a way that was slavish to the moment – or to its creator – and the book features an initial section on his writings on jazz and blues – with essays on John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Carmen McRae, BB King, John Handy, Vince Guaraldi & Bola Sete, Cal Tjader, Ben Webster, the San Francisco Jazz scene, and other diverse topics. The second section features Gleason on folk and rock – with bits on Jefferson Airplane, Hank Williams, Lenny Bruce, Odetta, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and others – and the final section features articles on politics and culture – covering topics that include Richard Nixon, radio payola, Law & Order, flower children, and other slices of society, seen from the Gleason viewpoint. Book is hardcover, and 309 pages. Book

Sublime Frequencies, 1969/1970. Used ... $14.99
Post Beatles pop and groovy beat psychedelia from the great Indonsian group Koes Plus – an offshoot of the earlier combo Koes Bersaudara that would go on to be legends in their homeland – here with a fantastic, fun and straight up wonderful couple of LPs collected on a single set by Sublime Frequencies! It include Dheg Dheg Plas from 1969 and Koes Plus Vol 2 from 1970 – the rare first 2 albums by the group – from raw, but melodic songs and rumbling rhythms to organ drenched garagey pulp that feels closer to ? And The Mysterians than The Beatles. It's really great stuff, catchy as all get out and with ragged charm to spare. A real treasure put together by Sublime Frequencies! Comes with a nice booklet with notes by Alan Bishop. 24 tracks in all: "Kelelawar (The Bats)", "Derita (Suffer)", "Awan Hitam (The Black Cloud)", "Tiba Tiba Aku Menangis (Suddenly I Cried)", "Bergembira (Have Fun)","Tjintamu Telah Berlalu (Your Love Has Passed)", "Dheg Dheg Plas (Heartbeat)", "Manis Dan Sajang (Sweet and Dear)" , "Hilang Tak Berkesan (Gone Without an Impression)", "Kembali Ke Djakarta (Back to Djakarta)", Rahasia Hatiku (Secret of my Heart)", "Andaikan Kau Datang (Wishing that You Would Come)", "Bilakah Kau Pulang (If You Were Home)", "Hanya Pusaramu (Only Your Grave)", "Mengapa Kau Sedih (Why Were You Sad)", "Djandjimu (Your Promise)" and more.

John LennonImagine ... LP
Apple, 1971. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the album are. It must be the most consistent of John's LPs post-Beatles, and it's just about as essential as they come. Co-produced by Phil Spector, yet it's often not as grandly orchestrated as a Wall Of Sound effort, and well tailored to Lennon's songs. Includes "Give Me Some Truth", "Oh My Love", "How Do You Sleep?", "Imagine", "Crippled Inside", "Jealous Guy" and "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier". LP, Vinyl record album

John LennonPlastic Ono Band (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Apple/Capitol, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
The first true proper solo album by John Lennon – recorded after a few non-Beatles records with Yoko Ono, and at the same time as Yoko's much wilder album with a similar title! This one, though, is John at his best – very personal and exposed, in similar territory to Paul McCartney on his first solo record – and the whole thing is a fantastic testament to the humanity that Lennon always brought to his music, even at a time when some might have accused him of going off the deep end with some of his more experimental music. The record's got a relatively stripped-down vibe, although isn't entirely just voice and guitar – as other elements are brought in at just the right level to expand the sound without losing the Lennon at the core. Titles include "Mother", "Hold On", "I Found Out", "Working Class Hero", "Isolation", "Remember", "Love", "Well Well Well", "Look At Me", "God", and "My Mummy's Dead". Great 2CD version – features the ultimate mix of the album, plus three tracks from singles – "Give Peace A Chance", "Instant Karma", and "Cold Turkey" – and a bonus CD with 14 more outtakes from the original recordings!

The set features London versions of hits by The Doors, Beatles, Monkees, and others – all given a gentle groove by Tommy Oliver, who brings in just enough jazz to make the music work for Julie. And given her great style of singing – still quite laidback and sultry – the tunes take on a really unique feel here – hardly covers at all, and more whole new conceptions of cuts that include "Light My Fire", "Like To Get To Know You", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sunday Mornin", "Mighty Quinn", "Without Him", "And I Love Him", and "Come To Me Slowly".

Each track is relatively long, and based around a set of smaller songs wrapped up in a medley – almost mini-symphonies in pop music, arranged by Mancini with a really lively sound that goes far past the usual pop orchestral styles of the time. Soloists include Mancini on piano, Ted Nash on alto sax, Arthur Gleghorn on flute, and Bud Brisbois on trumpet – and the set features "Portrait Of The Beatles", made up of Beatles' hits; "Foreign Film Festival", made up from 60s film themes; "Music From Hollywood", with US film themes; and "Three By Mancini", a variation on some groovy originals by Hank!

Paul McCartneyRam (2CD special edition) ... CD
Apple/Hear Music, 1971. Used 2CD ... $11.99
An early moment of genius from post-Beatles Paul McCartney – a solo set that's wonderfully diverse throughout – filled with the kinds of cool little twists and turns we loved in his late Beatles records, and in his 70s killers with Wings! There's a newly-emerging sweetness going on here – that great sound that started to emerge with the McCartney album – where Paul was a proud, put-together family guy – easily one of the most confident of his fab foursome, and able to bring an incredible amount of charm to just about any style he wanted to try! Some of the best cuts here are the mellower, more personal moments – still delivered with an amazing rock-solid sense of musicianship and production, too – and even the rockers, which might sound clunky in the hands of anyone else, manage to come off with a great deal of charm as well. Titles include the wonderfully playful "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" – plus "Too Many People", "Heart Of The Country", "Dear Boy", "Ram On", "The Back Seat Of My Car", and "Smile Away". 2CD version features some rare tracks and b-sides – including "Another Day", "Oh Woman Oh Why", "Little Woman Love", "Love For You", "Hey Diddle (Dixon Van Winkle mix)", "Great Cock & Seagull Race (Dixon Van Winkle mix)", "Rode All Night", and "Sunshine Sometime (earliest mix)".

One of the funkiest albums ever from Junior Parker – a great little set that shows he had a lot more to offer than just the average bluesman! The album's got a nice little soul sound in the backings – tight rhythms from Horace Ott, who nicely avoids a lot of the cliches that the blues business was hitting at the time – in order to keep Junior in hip territory that's filled with breaking drums and heavy basslines! There's a few key crossover tracks here, plus some surprisingly sweeter numbers – and the album's a gem through and through – well-appreciated by new generations over the years, thanks to its diversity of tracks! Titles include a great break version of "Taxman" – plus two more Beatles numbers, "Tomorrow Never Knows" and "Lady Madonna" – and the tracks "Outside Man", "Darling Depend On Me", "You Know I Love You", "River's Invitation", and "Just To Hold My Hand".

The first-ever full collection of all the groovy singles The Searchers recorded for the Pye Records label in the 60s – a 32 track set that includes both the a and b-side of every 7" release for the label! The Searchers were one of the leading lights of the early British invasion – a group who could harmonize as well as The Beatles, and who had a similar knack for turning out catchy tunes that packed plenty of punch, and which were a nicely stripped-down contrast to some of the more overblown production of American pop of the time! In addition to penning their own tunes, the group often covered work by American artists – taking US tunes and giving them a Brit Invasion flavor in a really great way – thanks to a lean sound, and lots of well-tuned guitar lines! Titles include "Western Union", "Second Hand Dealer", "Crazy Dreams", "This Feeling Inside", "I Pretend I'm With You", "Saturday Night Out", "When You Walk In The Room", "Sugar & Spice", "It's All Been A Dream", "Saints & Searchers", "I'm Never Coming Back", "Too Many Miles", and "Lovers".

EMI (UK), 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $39.99
Tripped-out pop by the great Sandie Shaw – a real departure from her other work of the 60s, and an album that's overflowing with wonderful late 60s tunes, grooves, and production! Sandie actually produced the set herself, in collaboration with supervisor Kenny Woodman – and she's going for a heady style that's got elements of the post-Beatles pop that would often show up on Capitol Records albums of the time, or on some of the cooler French pop sessions from the same period. Instrumentation is mostly small combo rock-based – lots of nice keyboards and guitar work, plus a bit of sax or flute – and although most of the titles are covers, they're redone by Sandie in a style that's laidback and sexy, almost a British take on the Jane Birkin style of early years. Titles include "Sympathy For The Devil", "Coconut Grove", "Your Time Is Gonna Come", "Sun In My Eyes", "Mama Roux", "Reviewing The Situation", and "Oh Gosh". Plus, this great version features the rare mono mix of the album – plus a full other record with 10 bonus tracks!

We're not sure what was in the water at the time, but these guys definitely seem to be drinking in a bit of the trippier elements of their generation – from their hippie look on the cover, to the overall mix of material, which includes a few surprising Beatles covers too! Arrangements are by Stan Vincent and Tony Davilo – who create a nice blend of Chicago soul and psych-styled touches – while still allowing the group's harmonies to get sweet at all the right moments – especially on their sublime classic "Ooh Child" – a track you'll recognize right away, and a gem that never gets old! Other titles include the funky "Vice The Lights", versions of "Dear Prudence" and "Getting Better", and the cuts "What About Your Wife", "Sweet As A Peach", and "Up & Down". LP, Vinyl record album

King Size TaylorDr Feelgood – The Brits Are Rocking Vol 3 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A wealth of rare rockers from King Size Taylor – an overlooked figure on the British scene of the early 60s, and one who borrows some of the best influences from the American singers and guitarists of the decade before! Taylor's got a strong presence and a nicely bold voice – a style that sometimes echoes the Big Bopper, other times is maybe more in a Carl Perkins style – with just some occasional echoes of the new modes that were brewing up in and around Liverpool. In fact, some of his use of Perkins and Chuck Berry-influenced material echoes that of the young Beatles – who crossed paths with Taylor over in Hamburg. This set features 31 numbers in all – served up with the usual great sound and very detailed notes that we love in a Bear Family package – a long-overdue addition to the rock and roll history books! Titles include "I Can Tell", "Sad & Blue", "Saw My Baby With Another Guy", "Matchbox", "Money", "Sherry Baby", "All Around The World", "Dr Feelgood", "She Said Yeah", "Stupidity", and "Domino Twist".

Milestone, 1967/1968. Used ... $22.99
Excellent late work by Bobby Timmons – and 2 of the most compelling albums he ever recorded! On Got To Get It he funky piano genius plays in two different settings – one, a tight quartet with some nice guitar by a young Joe Beck; the other, with a groovy larger band, led by Tom McIntosh, and augmented by voices. The McIntosh stuff is great – and the mix of voice, woodwinds, and funky piano is amazing! The arrangements are really off-kilter and fresher than most stuff from this vintage, and the material's a sweet mix of groove and funk that provides a perfect showcase for Timmons' incredible piano talents. Cuts include Bobby's classic "I'm So Tired", the swingin' "Booker's Bossa", McIntosh's "If You Ain't Got It", and lots lots more. Do You Know The Way is Bobby Timmon's last LP – and a very appropriate batch of tracks to grace a title like "Do You Know The Way?" Bobby definitely knows his way around here, and his work on the piano is as amazing as it ever was – but he plays here in a quartet with electric bass and guitar, which gives his funky piano style a new urgency – especially on the album's stormers, like "Come Together" (not the Beatles' track) and "The Spanish Count". The title track – a reworking of "Do You Know The Way To San Jose" – is also a supreme groover, and it's given a great kick by Bobby's heavy funk piano! 17 cuts in all – and a real treat! CD

VariousBeat Scene (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Decca (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
An excellent collection of work from one of our favorite strands of the British scene of the 60s – the all-important beat scene – the mod-styled groups that started to emerge from England at the time, influenced by American soul and R&B, but working in a style that was clearly all their own! There certainly were echoes of the beat sound in the music of The Beatles and other Brit invasion combos – but on the fringes of the scene, the styles were much farther-reaching, and eventually set the stage for progressive and jazz rock modes at the end of the 60s. The key years of the beat scene are nicely documented here by a variety of different groups that go way beyond familiar hits. Titles include "Now I Know" by The Beat Chicks, "I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door" by The Pete Best Four, "Once In A While" by The Brooks, "Who'll Be The Next In Line" by The Knack, "Heart Of Stone" by The Hi Numbers, "Did You Want To Run Away" by Tierney's Fugitives, "I Was Only Playing Games" by Unit 4 & 2, "Lost My Girl" by Rick & Sandy, "That's What I Want" by The Mauraders, "Keep On Dancing" by Brian Poole & The Tremeloes, and "Hurt Me If You Will" by The Mark Four.

VariousDestroy That Boy! – More Girls With Guitars ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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 drenched in plenty of fuzz, recorded with a garagey style, and often rock just as hard as any male cuts from the time! Most material is by US groups, but there's also some surprising gems from overseas too – and the package is a much-needed look at this under-documented side of 60s rock and roll. Titles include "I'm Gonna Destroy That Boy" by The What Four, "I've Been Workin On You (demo)" by The Feminine Complex, "You Don't Love Me" by The Starlets, "Climb That Tree" by She Trinity, "Fraternity USA" by The Lady Bugs, "Here I Am In Love Again" by The Girls, "The Beatles Are In Town" by The Fondettes, "Don't You Think It's Fine" by Project X, "Hold On" by Sharon Tandy, "Tell Me" by The Termites, "He's Something Else" by The Liverbirds, and "Shakin All Over" by Raylene & The Blue Angels.

El (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
The title's a reference to a Beatles' song – and the set brings together a range of classical and other styles of music that had a huge influence on the 60s pop scene – a number of sources that you'll definitely recognize in later work by the Fab Four, plus lots more important work as well! About eighty percent of the set is classical, in a mix of both avant/20th Century, and some warmer more sentimental modes – and the package also includes a few choice cuts from the world of jazz, European pop, and even global music – so that the 3CD set features this amazing mix of sounds from artists who include Charlie Parker, Jacques Brel, Bernard Herrmann, Yusef Lateef, Bruno Martino, Lucio Alves, Sun Ra, Ravi Shankar, and composers who include Berio, Bach, Xenakis, Stravinsky, Holst, Handel, Williams, Stockhausen, Ravel, and John Cage. 51 tracks in all – and notes that help guide you through this amazing musical journey.

VariousLet It Be – Black America Sings Lennon, McCartney, & Harrison ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Think The Beatles only had an impact on rock and pop fans in the America of the 60s? Think again – because their music had an undeniable impact on soul as well – as you'll here from this wonderful range of remakes of classic cuts from the Fab Four! The work here is a real surprise if you don't know the legacy – but it also really makes sense once you're reminded of the mind-expanding, ear-opening territory the group hit in the latter half of the 60s – and working with themes of social change, alienation, and personal longing – of the sort that turn out to be perfect for new interpretations in soul! Most of these cuts are way more than standard cover versions, too – as the arrangements are really inventive, and take off in bold new directions that make the songs very much new properties overall. Most of the work here is from the late 60s and early 70s – and as always with Ace Records, the notes and presentation really put the music in context! Titles include "The Fool On The Hill" by The Four Tops, "Dear Prudence" by The Five Stairsteps, "For No One" by Maceo & The King's Men, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Tomorrow Never Knows" by Junior Parker, "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Do You Want To Know A Secret" by Mary Wells, "Lovely Rita" by Fats Domino, "With A Little Help From My Friends" by The Undisputed Truth, "Savoy Truffle" by Ella Fitzgerald, and "Let It Be" by Bill Withers.

VariousSound Of The R&B Hits (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A really classic collection – expanded here with lots of bonus tracks too – all to focus on the best sounds of the early years of Motown! The set's not R&B at all – but it is an important 1964 UK release of vintage Motown material – put on the overseas market after the Beatles, Stones, and other English groups were dipping into the world of motor city soul for their own recordings – which meant that it was more than time enough for some of the original tracks to their a new level of exposure! Motown maybe shaped the sound of rock in the UK even more than it did over here – and this collection is also a great portrait of the key core of artists who made the label so great at the start, before the company started branching out to bring other artists into the roster. Titles include "Money" by Barrett Strong, "Shop Around" and "I Don't Want To Take A Chance" by Mary Wells, "Way Over There" and "The One Who Really Loves You" by The Marvelettes, "Everybody's Gotta Pay Some Dues" and "I'll Try Something New" by The Miracles, "Mocking Bird" by Martha & The Vandellas, and "Let Me Go The Right Way" by The Supremes". The original 14 track album has been expanded to 28 cuts here – with bonus material that includes "Hitch Hike" and "Pride & Joy" by Marvin Gaye, "Please Mr Postman" and "I Want A Guy" by The Marvelettes, "Shake Sherry" by The Contours, "Oh I Apologize" by Barrett Strong, "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" and "I've Been Good To You" by The Miracles, "I Found Myself A Brand New Baby" by Mike & The Modifiers, "You Beat Me To The Punch" by Mary Wells, and "I Found A Girl" by The Valadiers.

180g (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $25.99 34.98
A fantastic document of the lost funk legacy of 70s Japan – music that's often different than the jazz and pop work of the decade that sees greater reissue, and which shows a very strong influence from the American scene! The rhythms here are wonderful – sometimes in the best funky soundtrack mode, other times with maybe even a bit of psych added in – and some of the cuts feature lyrics, either in English or Japanese, also with a very soulful vibe – but much more of an edge than the polished sound of the city pop generation! Titles include "Yumura No Obaba" by Akira Yasuda & Beat Folk, "Jikokeno No Samba" by Kan Mikami, "Singer Lady" by Hatsumi Shibata, "Devil Woman" by Bread & Butter, "I Hope It's Fine" by School Band, "Watashi No Beatles" by Fujio Tokita, "Bad Junky Blues" by Hiroshi Sato, "Theme Of Doberman Cop" by Mieko Hirota, and "The In & Outer Stomp & Shouter" by Sammy with Jiro Inagaki & Soul Media.

✨✧ Beastie BoysPaul's Boutique (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Capitol, 1989. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily 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.

Dot, 1968. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best American psych albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

Prepare to discover your new favorite artist – a tremendously hip cat who never got his due – and who should be held as high on these shores as British talents like Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, or John Martyn! Like all of those three, Davy Graham is a complete original – a guy with an acoustic guitar, but light years beyond familiar folk – often using all these jazzy changes in his style, and mixing his own music with songs by Dylan, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, and even Art Blakey – but all in ways that are completely transformative, and which maybe use the familiar songs just as a way for Graham to show us how individual he can be – because even a song we know sounds nothing like the original. His guitar work is superb – full of all the fresh ideas, unusual phrasings, and special sounds that the best of his generation were bringing to acoustic music – and titles include "Lotus Blossom", "Down Along The Cove", "Stan's Guitar", "Bulgarian Dance", "Buhaina Chant", "I'm Ready", "Getting Better", "Hornpipe For Harpsichord Played Upon Guitar", and "Pretty Polly".

A really great self-titled set from Emitt Rhodes – a compelling California singer who hardly ever gets his due! The music's a wonderful mix of California late 60s singer/songwriter modes and bits of Beatles-esque production – a blend that makes for a fuller feel than usual for a record like this – a bit more confidence, and some really great punch in the overall sound, but never in a way that's slick or commercial. Emitt handled all instruments and arrangements himself – and Curt Boettcher helped a bit on the mix down, so we're happy to credit him for part of the "punch". Titles include "With My Face On The Floor", "She's Such A Beauty", "Promises I've Made", "Long Time No See", and "You Take The Dark Out Of The Night". CD

The Rutles had a very short initial life – the subject of a tremendous mockumentary – put together in the 70s by Eric Idle of Monty Python and Neil Innes of Bonzo Dog Band! And yet over the years, the group's take on the sound of The Beatles has become something of a legend – appealing to fans of Python and the Fab Four themselves – who've even given their own nod to The Rutles over the years! Our favorite bits are the later ones – in which the Innes/Idle parody of psychedelic Beatles sounds is almost a parody of psychedelia at a larger level too. Years before Spinal Tap – and with much longer-lasting appeal. LP, Vinyl record album

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 by The Beatles, Zombies, Impressions, and others – taken into really weird new territory by the group's jamming fuzz guitar, stark rhythms, and dark sensibilities. Genius Shadow Morton produced and directed the whole thing – which is one of his crowning achievements, and a great commentary on some of the more mainstream pop he was producing at the time. Titles include "Illusions Of My Childhood", "Eleanor Rigby", "Ticket To Ride", "Bang Bang", "She's Not There", "Take Me For A Little While", and "You Keep Me Hanging On". CD

Lion, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite South American rock records of all time – and maybe even one of our favorite rock albums too – a magnificent set by this sublime Peruvian group – done with a sound that's somewhere between late Beatles, early Bee Gees, and ELO in their prime! Yet the production style here is also a lot more primitive than that used by any of those bigger groups – which puts a lot more emphasis on the song structures and vocal phrasing of the tunes – a beautiful balance between harmony vocals, simple guitar lines, and these subtle rhythms that slide in with a seductive feel, and really send the whole thing home! Vocals are all in English, with these soulful undercurrents that are quite unexpected – and the overall sound is way more sophisticated than even their hippest SA contemporaries! Titles include "Children", "Carry On Till Tomorrow", "Walking In The Rain", "The City Will Be A Country", "It's A Sin To Go Away", and "Tomorrow". CD features 8 bonus tracks too – including "Blue", "Mornin", "California", "Feel", "Any World", and "Wake Up Joe". CD

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare rock from the Golden Triangle scene of Southeast TX in the late 60s and early 70s – a well-curated overview of the stylistically sprawling material being cut at Mickey Rouse's Lowland Recording Studio in Beaumont! Texas rock of the late 60s and early 70s justifiably brings to mind acts like The 13th Floor Elevators and The Bubble Puppy – tripped out psychedelia in other words, but Texas is huge, and there was a heck of a lot more going on than just the best remembered cult favorites. The music coming out of just the Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange, Texas "triangle" chronicled here was incredibly diverse. It includes proto TX boogie rock that's a clear precursor to early ZZ Top, harmony flavored numbers that sound closer to Cali than they do The Lone Star State, one track that somehow fuses CS&N with The Beatles and does so with prominent cowbell in the mix (and it's good!!!), punchy psych grit, and swaggering country rock with some twang in the strings that feels a bit more profoundly Texan. You don't need our word that The Numero Group has devoted some serious attention to detail – with a 35-page booklet of notes, photos and histories, plus the impressive Lost In The Golden Triangle "family tree" of the regional musicians involved – as if discovering these long buried regional relics wasn't impressive enough already. Beautiful! 22 tracks in all: "Trash One" by the Lowland Studio Band, "Live My Life Today" by Insight Out, "Simple House" by Mother Lion, "Love Of The Morning" by Circus, "Take A Look At Your Friends" by Next Exit, "You Know I Love You" by Roy Briggs & Alton Tew, "Calling Me Home (Demo)" by Donald Thomas and more.

CBS/BGO (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 classic albums from British vocalist Georgie Fame – back to back on one CD! First up are Two Faces Of Fame – live and studio – as each side of the album was recorded in each mode! Side one features the Brit jazz vocalist swinging in a live set recorded in early 1967 – done with lots of Hammond organ in the lineup, and an overall style that picks up a lot from Ray Charles and Mose Allison, but filters it through the groovier beat group styles of 60s London. Side two is even better, and features Georgie singing in more of a jazz-based mode – with lineups that feature some striking players that include Tony Oxley, Peter King, Gordon Beck, and Tubby Hayes. Tracks include a wonderful take on Mongo Santamaria's "El Pussycat", plus the tunes "Do It The Hard Way", "It Could Happen To You", "C'Est La Vie", "River's Invitation", "Greenback Dollar Bill", and "Keep Your Big Mouth Shut". Third Face Of Fame is an even better album – one that has Fame moving past the swinging Mose Allison-inspired jazz vocal mode of earlier records, into a groovier style that picks up a range of different sounds! Georgie kicks off the album with his version of the ever-popular late 60s "Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde" – and seems to use that tune as an excuse to explore a nice range of older jazz vocal approaches, including one tune that even has him reciting the lyrics in a Beatles-sounding monologue! Arrangements are by Harry South, with players that include Gordon Beck, John McLaughlin, Ronnie Scott, Tony Coe, and Ian Hammer – and titles include "Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde", "Ask Me Nice", "When I'm Sixty Four", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Blue Prelude", "Bullets Laverne", "This Is Always", "Mellow Yellow", and "Side By Side".

The combo had changed a bit by the time of this debut – and benefits from great guitar by a young Russ Ballard – in a mix of beat and sweet styles that are often recorded with the same sort of echoey charm of early Beatles material, but which also get occasional jazz and blues moments that tie them more strongly to the growing wave of mod music to come. CD adds in lots of bonus tracks to the original album – 22 titles in all, with tracks that include "Bad Time", "Settle Down", "I'll Remember Tonight", "You Don't Love Me", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Yesterday Today & Tomorrow", "The Long Cigarette", "Junk", "Tell Tale Tit", and "Me Body".

Soulive pays homage to The Beatles – a straight up, raw & funky organ trio take on tracks from Rubber Soul (our favorite Beatles album, by the way) and other hits by The Fab Four – and it's great! There was a period from the mid 60s through the 70s in which a Beatles tribute LP, in every style of music, efforts ranging from the most sincere to the worst kind of novelty records, seemed to fall from the sky every 5 minutes. The excellent musicians and funky jazz devotees of Soulive are keenly and clearly aware of this – picking up on a pop tradition that's been nearly dormant for a couple decades. They do a fantastic job of showing how adaptable the great songs of The Beatles are, but even better than that, demonstrating Soulive's own amazing funky souls!

A really cool combo album of music on the lute-like oud – and one that almost seems to echo the way that bassist Ahmed Abdul Malik took the instrument into more jazz-based territory at the start of the 60s! George Mgrdichian plays in a style that's maybe more traditional overall, but with a small group that features guitar, bass, and drums – so that the tunes spin out in this really cool way that links the older North African traditions of the instrument with some of the 60s modes that you might guess from the title! The set's a lot less pop than other records of its nature – and maybe even more so than some of George's other albums too – and although most tunes are traditional Turkish, Greek, or Armenian numbers, the set also features one nice Beatles cover too – a tight take on "Yesterday", and a version of "Take 5". Other titles include "Sultan Yega", "Israeli Medley", "Caderemen Ustune", "Sev Khavar", "Shenez Longa", "Marinella", and "Laz Bar". CD

But it's the original tracks that we really love, especially those numbers that lay back and get a bit more personal – showcasing a side of Williams' persona that's not as caught up in Swamp Dogg's posturing.

Autumn/Trading Places (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first full album from The Beau Brummels – an early Autumn Records effort before their headier days at Warner – cut with a style that could well make the group a key force to stop the British Invasion of the 60s! There's a great sense of jangle-pop throughout – a slight twang that would later unfold in different ways in Bradley's Barn, but which here works to give the tunes this little sense of sadness amidst the warmer melodies – which themselves are particularly great, and much better-crafted than some of the other US groups of this nature at the time. The boys definitely borrow a bit from The Beatles (including a name that gave them placement right next to the fab four in the record racks) – but maybe they're also drawing on some of the folk harmony groups from the SF scene they called home, too. Titles include "Laugh Laugh", "Just A Little", "Oh Lonesome Me", "They'll Make You Cry", "Stick Like Glue", "Not Too Long Ago", and "I Want More Loving". LP, Vinyl record album

Text, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99
Some of the lushest, most melodic material from Four Tet yet – straight up beautiful for the most part – and a pretty strong contender for his best to date! He's blending electronics and more natural sounds in ways that aren't out of character given his past work, but the title is wholly appropriate. Up to this point, he's so fully embraced creative evolution, it's gratifying to hear a Four Tet record in which he brings in bits of the styles he's worked on past efforts with a new energy and fresh life. It'll roll from almost beatless mixes of electronic atmosphere and natural sounds on one track, to beats-centric and spacey on the next, but it gels all the way through, all parts of a hypnotic whole. Includes "Alap", "Two Thousand Seventeen", "LA Trance", "Tremper", "Lush", "You Are Loved", "10 Midi", "Daughter", and "Planet". LP, Vinyl record album
