BeatlesMagical Mystery Tour (2x7" ep) ... 7-inch
Parlophone (UK), 1968. Very Good 2x7" Gatefold (pic cover)... $24.99
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". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(UK pressing with KT stamp, in a nice oversized gatefold cover with booklet. NOTE – Disc 1 has a hairline crack at the edge, plays with a light tic on "I Am The Walrus", in great shape otherwise. Sleeve has light aging and is bent a bit at the top.)

✨✧ Cilla BlackSher-oo/Modern Priscilla (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Parlophone/SFE (UK), 1968/1978. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A pair of EMI classics from Cilla Black – separated by the space of a decade, and filled in with 21 more bonus tracks too! First up is Sher-oo – fantastic work from Cilla Black – only her third full length album, but a set that already has the singer growing way past some of her British female contemporaries of the 60s! There's still a bit of the uptown soul of Cilla's roots – the dark-stepping groove that always served her so well – but there's also a wider range of song styles and arrangements, with a majestic flow that really does great things with Black's incredible vocal approach. Johnny Harris and Johnny Scott both had a hand in putting the charts together – and the set also features the classic "Step Inside My Love", written for Cilla by Lennon & McCartney. Other tracks include "Yo Yo", "Take Me In Your Arms & Love Me", "Misty Roses", "Something's Gotten A Hold Of My Heart", "Follow The Path Of The Stars", and "What The World Needs Now". Modern Priscilla is a record that takes Cilla Black in an unusual direction – a set that has her moving into more disco modes overall, but still keeping things relatively special, thanks to strong production work from Mike Hurst, and a track selection of unusual material! Given that Black's vocals always had a lot more range than some of the mainstream disco singers of the European scene, she fits right in – and manages to turn out a few gentler tracks amidst all the funkier upbeat numbers. As mentioned, the set features a huge number of bonus tracks – including "This Time I'm In It For Love", "Songs", "Follow", "Silly Boy (Paul Hulme mix)", "From Now On", "Work Is A Four Letter Word (film version)", "Step Inside My Love (almighty 12" definitive mix)", "M'Innamoro", "Step Inside Love (first take)", and "All My Love".

✨✧ David BowieAladdin Sane (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
One of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul".

David BowieBoys Keep Swinging (2017 Tony Visconti mix)/I Pray Ole (picture disc) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A great Bowie song from the late 70s – one that maybe marked his return to the clubs, and with a sensibility that both addresses some of the gender issues of earlier years, and the spirit of creativity that was alive and well in the Berlin scene of the 70s! Yet there's also an unusually positive vibe, too – almost Bowie reworking Tom Sawyer – a bit before Rush had the same idea. "I Pray Ole" is a tune that was kind of "lost" during Bowie's late Berlin years – resurfacing here in a 1991 mix by Bowie and Tony Visconti. "Boys" is also in a 2017 Tony Visconti mix too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieChanges One (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Parlophone, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Almost a "greatest hit" of "greatest hits" collection – given the importance of this album to the David Bowie catalog! Sure, it compiles tracks from other releases – but it also was the album that gave the world the killer cut "John I'm Only Dancing" – one of the key cuts in Bowie's gender revision in the 70s – and a title that was previously only out as a single! Alongside that gem, you also get a fantastic run of greatness from Bowie's first chapter of recording – the kind of cuts that would make other singers weep – including "Space Oddity", "Changes", "Ziggy Stardust", "Suffragette City", "Jean Genie", "Diamond Dogs", "Rebel Rebel", "Young Americans", "Fame", and "Golden Years".

David BowieClareville Grove Demos (3 X 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, 1969. New Copy 3 x 7 inch (pic cover)... $28.99 31.98
Very strange sounds from a real turning point in the career of David Bowie – demo tracks recorded in his own apartment, with accompaniment from John "Hutch" Hutchinson, who was in David's Feathers trio with Hermione Farthingale! This is a real lost chapter in Bowie's career – material between his early Decca work and his explosive "Space Oddity" hit – and tunes include some key steps along the way, although done in a very different, stripped-down mode. Titles include a demo take of "Space Oddity" with almost-final lyrics; the tune "Lover To The Dawn", which would transform into "Cygnet Committee"; a different version of "An Occasional Dream"; the more obscure "Ching A Ling"; a great take on "Let Me Sleep Beside You", sweeter than usual; and compelling harmony vocals with Hutch on "Life Is A Circus". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieDiamond Dogs (45th anniversary red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
David Bowie at his most sinister for the 70s – a landmark set that combines the harder rocking sound of the Ziggy Stardust years with the more sophisticated theatrics of Aladdin Sane – in a style that features some of the darkest, most political work of Bowie's career! There's a depth to the record that goes way beyond the silly, sensational cover image – and there's also a sonic complexity that's wonderful too – a songs slide into each other with a deftness that never fails to amaze us! The album grew out of a failed project based around George Orwell's famous book 1984 – but the rights to that story were denied by the family – so Bowie went in his own directly, and honestly came up with work that was far better than if he'd done any sort of slavish reading of the novel (Rick Wakeman famously failed in that territory – and the Eurhythmics fared just slightly better.) The whole thing's great, and titles include "Diamond Dogs", "1984", "Sweet Thing", "Candidate", "Rebel Rebel", and "Big Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David BowieHunky Dory (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the fuzzed-up and full-on guitars of Space Oddity or Man Who Sold the World – and often augmented with a bit of strings and softer touches that really bring out the humanity in the songs. The balance here is amazing – as is the fact that a few short years before, Bowie was singing "The Laughing Gnome", but is here one of the most sensitive songwriters of his generation. Tunes are quirky and personal, and titles include "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Life On Mars", "Kooks", and "Queen Bitch". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieLodger (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Parlophone, 1979. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 21.98
The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever! Titles include "Red Sails", "Look Back In Anger", "Repetition", "Boys Keep Swinging", "Red Money", "Yassassin", and "DJ". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieNew Career In A New Town – 1977 to 1982 (11CD box set) ... CD
Parlophone, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 11 CDs ... $99.99
Amazing music from one of our most-treasured stretches of David Bowie's career – that creatively-fertile time when he escaped to West Berlin, hid from the mainstream, and made some groundbreaking records with Brian Eno – then returned to the limelight to remind us all that he was still a hell of a force to be reckoned with! The set includes everything post-Thin White Duke, and pre-Let's Dance – a run of music that's still shaping new sounds on this planet all these many years later. The set begins with Low – the mix of experimental instrumentals and subtle vocal tracks that was a complete change from Ziggy Stardust – and follows with Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters & Super Creeps – all albums that reintroduce some sense of song and lyrical interplay, but at a level that clearly indicates how important Bowie was to the generation of post-punk and new wave as his earlier work was to psych, prog, and glam! But the package isn't just a standard collection of albums – because along with those four studio records, it also features the live album Stage, presented here in two different full mixes – plus a new 2017 mix of Lodger, which really increases the edge. There's also a special Heroes EP, with all the different language versions of the song – and a very cool Re:Call 3 album – which features all the singles that were issued at the time, plus other rare material – and Bowie's very unique take on Bertolt Brecht's Baal. Titles on this album include "Alabama Song", "Crystal Japan", "Under Pressure", "Remembering Marie A", "The Drowned Girl", "The Dirty Song", "Cat People", and even his "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" duet with Bing Crosby. As with other entries in this complete Bowie series, the presentation is wonderful – album sleeve replicas, great packaging, and lots of notes – kind of a treasure, even if you already own some of the records!

David BowieSpying Through A Keyhole – Demos & Unreleased Songs (4 x 7 inch box set) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, Late 60s. New Copy 4 x 7 inch set ... $31.99 34.98
A fantastic treasure for David Bowie fans – the first-ever vinyl appearance of some really wonderful material recorded right at a time when he was really finding his voice! A few cuts here are demos that offer very different versions of the better-known tracks, and other tunes are completely new discoveries all together – and, as with just about any other "bonus" Bowie rarities, the quality level is amazing – material that shows just how much genius he always brought to the game, as these are cuts that would have been classics from just about any other artist. Titles include "Mother Grey (demo)", "In The Heat Of The Morning (demo)", "Goodbye 3D Joe (demo)", "Love All Around (demo)", "London Bye Ta Ta (demo)", "Angel Angel Grubby Face (demo 1)", "Angel Angel Grubby Face (demo 2)", "Space Oddity (demo excerpt)", and "Space Oddity (demo w/Hutch)". 7-inch, Vinyl record

David BowieYoung Americans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album! Bowie was at the height of his Ziggy Stardust fame when this one was recorded – a drastic left-turn in styles, forged during a point in his American tour when he could take a break, head to Philly, plug in at the Sigma Sound Studios, and come up with some fantastic little soul tunes, thanks to help from Luther Vandross! The album sparkles with the best sound of Luther's early work – and you'll hear more than a bit of Luther's work on his own, and his tunes with Gregg Diamond on the set. Features the sublime tracks "Win", "Fascination", "Right", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "Can You Hear Me" – as well as the hits "Young Americans" and "Fame". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieZiggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work of the 70s – and represented a crucial moment when his groundbreaking music also found a large mainstream audience as well. And despite the fact that Ziggy's an androgynous space rocker with a spurious pedigree, the manufactured posturing of the album's come to be taken quite literally over the years – a vivid text of alienation, expression, and redemption – served up beautifully over a host of classic tracks that include "Five Years", "Soul Love", "Moonage Daydream", "Suffragette City", and "Ziggy Stardust" – all further proof of Bowie's 70s ability to slide in wherever he wanted with ease!

The young Kate Bush is in fantastic form here – looking a bit goofy on the cover, sure – but firmly establishing that sound that would make the lady a genre unto herself! It's hard to believe a record like this was coming out during major years for punk and disco – but that's also what's made it so timeless over the decades – kind of a fresh chapter of discovery, with that unabashed sense of openness that marked Kate's music in these early years. Titles include "Kashka From Baghdad", "Hammer Horror", "Coffee Homeground", "Fullhouse", "In The Warm Room", "Wow", "Oh England My Lionheart", "In Search Of Peter Pan", and "Don't Push Your Foot On The Heartbrake".

Kate BushNever For Ever (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Parlophone, 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Heavenly sounds from Kate Bush – a record that has her continuing to refine her style, and find a place for her music that's completely without reference to any other scene! There's definitely a few catchy numbers in the mix, but Kate's so confident, she hardly needs to try for commercial acclaim – as it's apparent that she's already found that audience that would stay faithful for years! Her voice seems even better than before – able to run up and down its amazing range, but without ever sounding like she's showing off – and always for a reason, to illuminate the tunes as she moves through octaves – in ways that few other singers can do, save for maybe Minnie Riperton at her best. Titles include the hit "Babooshka", plus "Army Dreamer", "Breathing", "All We Ever Look For", "Egypt", "The Wedding List", "Violin", and "Delius". LP, Vinyl record album

The second Gorillaz album, and if there was ever an inclination the first would be a one-and-done side project or its huge success would be a tough act to follow, this one pretty much slays both theories – it's ultimately one of the better leftfield pop albums of the 00s! The guest roster on Gorillaz albums is always pretty stunning, and this one especially so – with Damon Albarn bringing in a then white hot Danger Mouse as a producer, and welcoming Roots Manuva, De La Soul, MF Doom, Shaun Ryder, Martina Topley-Bird, Bootie Brown, Ike Turner, The London Gospel Choir, Dennis Hopper and more.

This animated alt pop supergroup once again pays heartening respect to some of the greatest living real life human artists who did get invited to the post-millennium pop music landscape often enough, co-billing the legendary George Benson on the album opener "Humility", and the quality doesn't diminish from there, with with sweet, synthy cinematic tune after another.

Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest albums ever from Francoise Hardy – a set that has her working with Brazilian arranger Tuca, who brings a very different vibe to her music – a mode that wraps together acoustic guitar, post-bossa arrangements, and some dark-tinged vocals from Francoise – all in a mode that feels like the best work from Nara Leao or Joyce at the time! The great Guy Pederson plays bass on the record, too – in this way that's subtle, but extremely powerful in the setting – bringing some deep currents to the music alongside Hardy's acoustic guitar – all wrapped up in an echoey style of production that's completely sublime. The whole thing feels much more like a lost late 60s side on Elenco Records than Hardy's usual music – and titles include "Doigts", "Viens", "La Question", "Mer", "Le Martien", "Chanson D'O", and "Bati Mon Nid".

✨✧ Cilla BlackCilla/In My Life (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Parlophone/SFE (UK), 1965/1974. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two key albums from England's legendary Cilla Black – back to back in a single set, and with 26 bonus tracks too! First up is the amazing 1965 debut, Cilla – a record that maybe draws even more heavily on American soul music than some of Dusty Springfield's early work – all given some impeccable handling in the studio by arranger Johnny Scott, with a bit of help from Johnny Spence, and the record's producer, George Martin. Tunes are a great blend of American pop tracks and more off-beat numbers – done in that strangely syncopated mode that always provided a perfect counterpoint for Cilla's vocals – percolating the tracks wonderfully, and keeping things nice and clean, in a way that you don't always find in her later records. Titles include "Baby It's You", "Goin Out Of My Head", "Every Little Bit Hurts", "This Empty Place", "Come To Me", "Dancing In The Street", and "Whatcha Gonna Do Bout It". In My Life is the first set in the second chapter of Cilla Black's years with EMI – and her first record without George Martin at the production helm, too! The styles open up with a lot more contemporary 70s elements than some of Black's previous records – and there's a fair bit of keyboard work to create these warmer currents underneath Cilla's always-strong lead vocals. Titles include "I'll Have To Say I Love You In A Song", "Someone", "Daydreamer", "Everything I Own", "Baby We Can't Go Wrong", "Let Him In", "Like A Song", and "I Believed It All". 2CD set features lots of bonus tracks – including "Changes", "From The Inside", "Alfie Darling", "He Was A Writer", "I'll Still Love You", "Little Bit Of Understanding", "Heatwave", "Anything You Might Say", and the full mono mix of the debut album.

A British jazz swinger from vocalist Rosemary Squires – working here with some great small combo backing that really opens up the tunes!

Squires never pushes herself too much – in a good way – and hangs back in just the right groove to work alongside the instrumental voicings of the group. Titles include "Get Out Of Town", "Carioca", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", "Mr Snow", "Tess Torch Song", "Have You Met Miss Jones", and "Day In Day Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Jazz Analog Premium Collection!)

✨✧ HawkwindSpace Ritual – Alive In Liverpool & London (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Parlophone, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A seminal set from Hawkwind – a record that virtually defines the term "space rock", and which went on to create a whole genre unto itself! The live setting is perfect for the group – as they open up on long tracks that blend together odd touches, sci fi elements, and some mighty heavy rock lines too – all with some trippy vocals that really send things over the top! Lemmy's a mad genius at this point – and the record's got a ballsy power that's quite different from more prog-based groups who travel down similar paths, but never with ferocity like this. Titles include "Earth Calling", "Born To Go", "Down Through The Night", "The Awakening", "Upside Down", "10 Seconds Of Forever", "Brainstorm", "Seven By Seven", "Sonic Attack", Welcome To The Future", "You Shouldn't Do That", "Time We Left This World Today", and "Master Of The Universe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – with the fold-out cover like the original pressing!)

✨✧ HolliesFor Certain Because ... LP
Parlophone/EMI (UK), 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Totally great stuff by The Hollies – and don't let anyone else tell you any different! For Certain is one of the band's greatest albums – forged out of some totally great songwriting, amazingly precise guitar parts, and sharp-edged vocals that make the tracks sparkle and glisten. Big hits include "Pay You Back With Interest" and "Stop Stop Stop" – but it's all great, and other titles include "Tell Me To My Face", "Clown", "What's Wrong With The Way I Live", and "Crusader". The CD reissue includes the album in both mono and stereo versions, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(UK stereo pressing, matrix ending in 1G, in the gatefold "flipback" cover, with light wear and aging.)

✨✧ MorrisseyThis Is Morrissey ... LP
Parlophone/Warner, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool package – an album that brings together some of Morrissey's best solo work, but in a cover that looks like some vintage album from the 60s – right down to the liner notes in French on the back! The man himself hardly needs an introduction, so we'll just let you know that tracks include "Ouija Board Ouija Board", "You're The One For Me Fatty (live)", "Last Of The Famous International Playboys", "Speedway", "Have A Go Merchant", "Suedehead (Mael mix)", "Angel Angel Down We Go Together", "Everyday Is Like Sunday", "Jack The Ripper", "Lucky Lisp", "The Harsh Truth Of The Camera Eye", "Whatever Happens I Love You", and even a live version of the Lou Reed classic "Satellite Of Love".

✨✧ AirMoon Safari (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1998. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The classic debut of Air – one of the fresher avant pop albums of the late 90s to say the least, and one of the best since then, too! Perhaps the greatest achievement here is how they deftly layer such broad influences of the preceding few decades – from soaring string film schools, to nascent electronic pop, to fusiony jazz keyboards and much in between and beyond – into a wholly original vibe all Air's own that's as breezy today as it was at the end of the 90s. Includes "La Femme D'Argent", the standout classic "Sexy Boy", "All I Need", "Kelly Watch The Stars", "Talisman". "Remember", "You Make It Easy", "Ce Matin La", "New Star In The Sky" and "Le Voyage De Penelope". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneColpix Singles – Mono ... LP
Colpix/Parlophone, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of early work from the legendary Nina Simone – singles that were originally issued by the Colpix label at the start of the 60s – a company who really let Nina find her own space in music! The sounds here really show the important transition Nina took over her short time with the label – from a straight jazz singer to one who could effortlessly blend together blues and folk influences – and come up with an approach that not only made the music her own, but also pushed an agenda of change in subtle and powerful ways. Nina's live albums for Colpix are well-known, but there's been much less focus on her singles for the company until this collection – which brings together all these rare gems, many in their original 45rpm versions for the first time since they were issued in the early 60s. Arrangements are by Stu Phillips, Ralph Burns, Bob Mersey, and even Nina herself – and titles include "The Other Woman", "If Only For Tonight", "Summertime", "Work Song", "In The Evening By The Moonlight", "I Got It Bad", "Gin House Blues", "Come On Back Jack", "Since My Love Has Gone", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out", "Children Go Where I Send You", and "Chilly Winds Don't Blow".

John BarryJohn Barry – The Mono Years 1957 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
The great John Barry as a young man – stepping out here on songs that are a lot more rocking than his later fame as a soundtrack composer – served up in a massive 3CD box that collects together singles for Parlophone and Columbia, plus some early rock songs from films! The style here is quite different than the Barry of the James Bond years – as the Parlophone tracks include a number of vocal singles that are clearly trying to challenge the US rock hits of the time, mixed with more instrumentals by the John Barry Seven – and the Columbia years follow with more of the instrumental vibe, often using cool production to bring the most out of the twangy guitars or bright trumpet lines. The set concludes with a CD that features the Beat Girl soundtrack and the Stringbeat instrumental album – both a strong extension of the Columbia years – and the package features 92 tracks in all – with a big booklet of notes – titles that include "Get Lost Jack frost", "Big Fella", "Beat For Beatniks", "Hit & Miss", "Zip Zip", "Little John", "Hideaway", "Farrago", "Big Guitar", "Tit Willow Twist", "Watch Your Step", "The Menace", "Blondie's Strip", "The Challenge", "Moody River", "A Handful Of Songs", "Zapata", and lots lots more.

David BowieHunky Dory ... LP
RCA, 1971. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the fuzzed-up and full-on guitars of Space Oddity or Man Who Sold the World – and often augmented with a bit of strings and softer touches that really bring out the humanity in the songs. The balance here is amazing – as is the fact that a few short years before, Bowie was singing "The Laughing Gnome", but is here one of the most sensitive songwriters of his generation. Tunes are quirky and personal, and titles include "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Life On Mars", "Kooks", and "Queen Bitch". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent 180 gram Parlophone pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)

ActionShadows & Reflections – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1968 (4CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 4CD ... $39.99
The complete recordings of The Action – a UK group that we'd put right up there with early work by The Who, and everything done by The Creation at the same time! Like both of those famous combos, these guys start out in mod territory, but already seem to be pushing forward for something new – maybe an echo of psych to come, although these guys never lasted long enough for that scene – or maybe just this richer, deeper approach to songwriting and performance that was never just content to copy American modes of the period! These guys grow a hell of a lot over the course of four short years – as you'll hear here, on 86 tracks that include their Parlophone masters, the lost Rolled Gold material from 1967 and 1968, unusual stereo tracks and other rare material recorded at Abbey Road, BBC live tracks, and even a number of unusual singles and side projects too. The whole thing comes in a great book-styled package – with graphics as groovy as the music, and lots more information too! CD
