✨✧ KinksArthur – Or The Fall & Decline Of The British Empire ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $39.99
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album. Titles include "Victoria", "Brainwashed", "Australia", "Shangri-La", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Yes Sir No Sir". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & tan label stereo pressing. NOTE: Back cover has a 4 inch square cutout where the band photo was located.)

✨✧ KinksKinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society ... CD
Castle (UK), 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest albums from The Kinks – the kind of material that pulled them strongly past their bluesy, garagey roots – into a role that has them giving some of the clearest, keenest visions of 20th Century British society – with all of its joys and worries! The tunes here are wonderful – well-penned little odes to the common man and fading scenes and styles of the UK – presented together as a sublime portrait of a late 60s England that hardly any other group would try to touch – all with wit and wisdom from the great Ray Davies, and loads of tuneful work from the rest of the band. Titles include "Do You Remember Walter?", "Picture Book", "Sitting By The Riverside", "Village Green", "All Of My Friends Were There", and "The Village Green Preservation Society". CD

KinksKinks Part 1 – Lola Versus Powerman & The Moneygoround (2CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/BMG, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
An album that maybe marked the close of one chapter of The Kinks, and the start of another – music that still holds on to some of the best elements of their late 60s Village Green era, but which also moves the group into some of the headier territory of their Muswell Hill/RCA years too! Ray Davies has never sounded more earnest – still able to pull off wit when needed, but also more down to earth – and because of the massive title hit, the set was also one that put the group in front of the ears or more folks than had been hearing them in previous years. Titles include, of course, the mega-hit "Lola" – plus "This Time Tomorrow", "Apeman", "Strangers", "The Contenders", "Long Way From Home", "Rats", and "Top Of The Pops". Great package – with alternate tracks that include mono versions of "Lola", "Apeman", "Rats", and "Powerman" – plus an alternate stereo take of "Apeman". CD2 features lots of bonus tracks – thew tunes "Anytime", "Marathon", and "Got To Be Free (edit)" – plus "Moneygoround (alt)", "Top Of The Pops (2020 mix)", "Get Back In Line (live)", "Strangers (2020 stereo)", "Contenders (inst demo)", "Long Way From Home (live 2006)", and "Lola (with Danish orchestra)".

A real standout in the later catalog of the Kinks – a record that gave the group a number of minor hits, and which let them rock out a bit more than usual – in a style that was clearly influenced by the punk of the period, but which also had sort of a Pete Townsend-esque quality to it.

Reprise, 1966/1967. Used ... $4.99
Wickedly clever British pop – plucked from our favorite period of this legendary British band! The record features the group hitting their songwriting stride – moving past the simple topics of earlier songs, into a flurry of snapshots of British life in the postwar years. Each song is a brilliant three minute ode to a certain aspect of life in England – served up with razor-sharp wit, and a creatively catchy approach to songwriting that few of the group's contemporaries could ever hope to match! The album features some of the best-known Kinks tunes from this time, plus overlooked gems – and titles include "Waterloo Sunset", "David Watts", "Death Of A Clown", "Two Sisters", "Situation Vacant", "Afternoon Tea", and "No Return".

Pye/BMG (UK), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early Kinks in all of their glory – showing a bit more of an R&B influence than in their later years, but still already working with all the wit and imagination that won us over many years ago! The tunes have a surprising roughness, if you're only used to the group from a few years later – but that makes kind of a nice change too – almost a distillation of the early Davies brother ideals at their start – without any overblown concepts to get in the way. Tunes include the originals "You Really Got Me", "So Mystifying", "Stop Your Sobbin", "Revenge", and "I Took My Baby Home" – plus versions of "Beautiful Delilah", "Bald Headed Woman", "Cadillac", and "I'm A Lover Not A Fighter".

Titles include "Sleepwalker", "Sleepless Night", "Brother", "Full Moon", "Life Goes On", "Stormy Sky", and "Mr Big Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Invada/Stones Throw, 2013. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great follow-up EP to Anika's addictive Stones Throw debut – a darkness-tinged batch of covers – bringing some great songs by The Kinks, The Crystals, Chromatics and Shocking Blue along with a pair of dubbed up versions of earlier Anika singles. There's a bit of no wave vibe of stark electronics and moody vocals, but Anika's got an overall presense unlike anyone else. Once again she gets some excellent production by Geoff Barrow of Beak and Portishead. Titles include "I Go To Sleep", "He Hit Me", "Love Buzz", "In The City", "No One's There (Dub)" and "Yang Yang (Dub)". LP, Vinyl record album

Chad & JeremyOf Cabbages & Kings ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
A dream of a record from Chad & Jeremy – a fantastic bit of psychedelic pop produced by Gary Usher! The album's got quite a different feel than the rest of the duo's work – as their standard Brit pop style is augmented by lots of extra strings and woodwinds, super-baroque in a beautiful post-Pet Sounds sort of way. The songs are wonderful, too – with themes on the rise and fall of modern life, very much in a Kinks sort of style – with titles like "Busman's Holiday", "Rest In Peace", "Family Way", "Can I See You", and the extended "Progress Suite". Plus, the CD features 6 bonus tracks, a few previously unissued – including "Manners Maketh Man", "Cautionary Tale", "Sister Marie", and "Painted Dayglow Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Davies & The Button Down BrassThemes From The Exorcist, The French Connection, The Sting, & Other Great Films/Flashpoint ... CD
Pye/Vocalion (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $19.99
Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin – but served up here by Ray's Button Down Brass in a very cool style – compressed funk, ala the best crime/cop modes of the time – but with lots of individual touches that make the songs very different than the original versions! Titles include "Point Blank", "Enter The Dragon", "Klute", "French Connection", "Tubular Bells", "Cops & Robbers", and "Beyond Tomorrow". Flashpoint continues with some great film themes again served up in the magic Ray Davies mode – a funky big band approach that makes the record every bit as compelling as the American Cop Shows album from Henry Mancini – but maybe groovier, too. Titles include "Kojak", "Big Boss", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Mr Majestyk", "Magnum Force", "Fist Of Fury", and "Airport 1975". CD

Esso Trinidad Steel BandEsso (with bonus DVD) ... CD
Warner/Bananastan, 1971. Used CD/DVD ... $9.99
A classic album of steel band grooving – a sound that made a surprising crossover in the American soul market in the early 70s! This album's one of the most famous of the genre – a session that was originally produced by Van Dyke Parks for Warner Brothers, and which has a nice blend of Caribbean and American soul styles. From our end, the highlight seems to be a cover of "I Want You Back", a cool groover that's done in a nice jangly way that works well with the steel drums. Other tracks include "Come To The Sunshine", a wonderful Van Dyke Parks composition that actually seems to be mixed here with some bits of the original recording – plus "Ride On Sammy", "Aquarium", "Sabre Dance", and an insane version of The Kinks' "Apeman". Also includes a bonus DVD – which documents the group's 1973 US tour, released here for the first time ever! CD

FlockFlock ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Far-reaching sounds from The Flock – a group who were maybe one of the best American acts at the end of the 60s to blend trippy rock with the big new wave of jazz fusion! These guys definitely use horns in a way that link them to the chunky groove of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat & Tears – but they're also clearly going for a more long-haired vibe, too – especially when they open up on some acoustic stringed instrumentation – such as 12-string guitar or violin, both of which are handled by Jerry Goodman in a really great way! These instruments really shape some of the sound of the set – especially the violin when it's used in these freewheeling passages that might give Jean-Luc Ponty a run for his money – but there's also a core, tight soulful sound that balances things out nicely – as does some of the heavy drums and fuzzy guitar! Titles include "Clown", "I Am The Tall Tree", "Store Bought Store Thought", and "Truth" – plus a very cool funky cover of The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album

A pair of albums by The Flock – with bonus tracks too! First up is the group's self-titled debut – far-reaching sounds from The Flock – a group who were maybe one of the best American acts at the end of the 60s to blend trippy rock with the big new wave of jazz fusion! These guys definitely use horns in a way that link them to the chunky groove of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat & Tears – but they're also clearly going for a more long-haired vibe, too – especially when they open up on some acoustic stringed instrumentation – such as 12-string guitar or violin, both of which are handled by Jerry Goodman in a really great way!

Titles include "Clown", "I Am The Tall Tree", "Store Bought Store Thought", and "Truth" – plus a very cool funky cover of The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting". Dinosaur Swamps has a slightly different sound than previously from The Flock – a set that brings in some sweet Hammond organ to the group's mix of jazzy horns and freewheeling guitar and violin – all in a way that even makes the whole thing better than before! The organ is never too jamming, but used at times to give the music a subtle majesty – and at other times to maybe percolate a bit more soul – while the previous instrumentation on guitar, violin, trumpet, and saxes is only even better than before – really setting these guys apart with one of the most unique visions in American jazz rock – especially when they maybe hit a few other musical roots too. Titles include "Green Slice", "Big Bird", "Hornschmeyer's Island", "Crabfoot", "Mermaid", and "Uranian Sircus". 2CD set features lots of bonus tracks – including "Afrika", "Just Do It", "Clown (part 1 & 2)", "What Would You Do If The Sun Died", "Lollipops & Rainbows", "Chanja", and "Atlantians Truckin Home".

VariousBowie Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The genius of Ziggy Stardust didn't just spring out of the blue – as David Bowie spent years listening to other music by a range of different artists – engaging them, supporting them, and absorbing them in the process – all to weave into the rich tapestry that became his own musical legacy! Bowie famously covered 60s tunes on his Pin Ups album, and did others' tracks on some other studio sides as well – and his live performances were famous over the years for surprising remakes that offered unabashed homage to those who influenced him – a few of whom would become musical partners as well. This loving package features 24 tracks that were all later performed by Bowie, but delivered here in their original versions – all with detailed notes that trace the lines between the initial takes and the remakes – with the kind of flourish we've come to love from Ace Records. Titles include "Fill Your Heart" by Biff Rose, "It Ain't Easy" by Ron Davies, "Sorry" by The Merseys, "Rosalyn" by The Pretty Things, "Dancing In The Street" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Nite Flights" by The Walker Brothers, "Alabama Song" by Lotte Lenya & The Three Admirals, "Kingdom Come" by Tom Verlaine, "Where Have All The Good Times Gone" by The Kinks, "White Light White Heat" by The Velvet Underground, "Louie Go Home" by Paul Revere & The Raiders, "If There Is Something" by Roxy Music, "Criminal World" by Metro, "Amsterdam" by Jacques Brel, "Wild Is The Wind" by Johnny Mathis, "I Took A Trip On A Gemini Space Ship" by The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, and "Pablo Picasso" by The Modern Lovers.

VariousQueer Noises – From The Closet To The Charts 1961 to 1978 ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
We'll be the first to admit that we're never that comfortable with efforts to out gay and bi performers in pop music – especially if such outing is never the choice of the performers themselves – but this package is a fair bit better than most, thanks to some careful handling by compiler Jon Savage! As with some of his other efforts, Savage does a great job of drawing lines between unlikely sources – pulling together bits of 60s pop that are less explicit about their content and desires, and using them to start a path that leads into more openly expressive work from the glam, punk, and disco years of the 70s. As with other Trikont packages, the set features full notes on the music and each track – both in German and English – and the CD boasts a wonderfully eclectic batch of material that includes "Eros" by Rod McKuen, "At The Black Cat" by Jose, "See My Friend" by The Kinks, "Kay Why" by The Brothers Butch, "Come Here Often" by The Tornados, "Coochy Coo" by Polly Perkins, "Closet Queen" by Harrison Kennedy, "Astral Cowboy" by Curt Boettcher, "I Was Born This Way" by Valentino, "Ain't Nobody Straight In LA" by The Miracles, "53rd & 3rd" by The Ramones, "Trouble At The Cup" by Black Randy & The Metro Squad, "The Man I Love" by Zebedy, and "These Boots" by Teddy & Darrel. 24 tracks in all.

Fontana/Madfish (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from The Pretty Things – a vastly-underrated group who work here with a depth that rivals bigger contemporaries like The Kinks or The Who! Like both of those groups, The Pretty Things have a heck of a lot going on musically – a real range of styles that goes beyond simple catchy pop – showing a growth in style and sound that's really tremendous, given the way they sounded just a few albums back. The songs are almost all originals, and filled with themes that run from the fierce to the fragile – often pointed pictures of the human condition, delivered with surprising sensitivity. The album features some added orchestrations from Reg Tilsley, and titles include "Tripping", "My Time", "One Long Glance", "House Of Ten", "Out In The Night", "Death Of A Socialite", "The Sun", "Children", and "Bright Lights Of The City". CD features 7 bonus tracks – including "Progress", "House In The Country", "My Time", "Photographer", and "The Sun". CD

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneAin't But the One Way ... LP
Warner, 1982. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last major album from Sly Stone – and a great little set that's still very much at the top of his funky soul game! The groove's a bit different than early Family Stone years, but still has a collaborative funky feel that's so much stronger than some of the stiffer efforts on the market at the time – proof that doing things with the right sort of live and lively energy still beats a whole roomful of drum machines and keyboards! Stone's got a way of providing these slinky inflections on his lyrics – sexing up the grooves even more than the instrumentation – and backing from straighter soul singers hole things in place with an old school vibe. Bobby Lyle plays a bit of keyboards on the set – and titles include "Who In the Funk Do You Think You Are", "Sylvester", "We Can Do It", "LOVINU", "One Way", and "High Y'All" – plus one of weirder covers of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" you're ever likely to hear!

Decca (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic early work from David Bowie – material that we've always treasured as much as Ziggy Stardust! This set's pre-Hunky Dory, pre-Space Oddity – and it's an amazing little record that's almost completely devoid of guitars – instead using weird woodwinds (lots of oboe!), soaring strings, and offbeat orchestrations to carry off the tunes – all of which are as weird, mad, and wonderful as anything Bowie wrote in later years! The subject matter of the songs is almost a dark reflection of the picture postcard England that you'd find in work by The Kinks – the local pederast, weird guy who lives with his mum, old military geezer who can't get out of the past, cross-dressing soldiers, a gravedigger about to meet his death, and hip Londoners gallivanting all over town – all delivered with a sharpness that's stunning. We honestly think the record is flawless – incredibly complicated instrumentally, but incredibly groovy too – with all the edge you'll always love in Bowie, but in a fresh young flavor too. Years back, as young Bowie-heads, we always passed this one by – assuming it was unformed early roughness – but it's not, and is an incredible album that would have been more than enough for any other artist to build a career on. Includes "Uncle Arthur", "Sell Me A Coat", "Rubber Band", "Love You Till Tuesday", "There Is A Happy Land", "When I Live My Dream", "The London Boys", "Karma Man", and "She's Got Medals".

✨✧ TurtlesTurtle Soup ... LP
White Whale, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the crowning achievements of The Turtles – a set that features all original material by members of the group, and stellar production by Ray Davies of The Kinks! The set's the only full length that Davies ever handled – and it's obvious the group really rose to the occasion for the honor – hitting territory that's nicely sophisticated, yet which still has the sharpness of their earlier material too – a bit like the territory that Ray was hitting at the time with his own music. The songs are both a lot more personal, and have some deeper currents too – as The Turtles, like so many other west coast pop acts, were really maturing at the end of the 60s. Titles include "She Always Leaves Me Laughing", "Somewhere Friday Night", "Dance This Dance", "You Don't Have To Walk In The Rain", "Bachelor Mother", "Love In The City", and "House On The Hill".
