David BowieMan Who Sold The World (picture disc) ... LP
RCA/Parlophone, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.99
The first truly great David Bowie electric guitar album – an all-out, power-driven set of tracks played by a group that included Mick Ronson and Tony Visconti! Bowie's in prime pre-Ziggy mode here – ripping into tunes that blister with dark energy that are some of the first truly dangerous songs he ever recorded – with this strong undercurrent of mania that follows some of the darker whimsy of his earliest records – set to searing sounds that would forever help Bowie cross over to audiences who might previously have thought him an arty wimp. The set includes classics like "Saviour Machine", "The Width Of The Circle", "All The Madmen", "Black Country Rock", "The Supermen", and the title track, "The Man Who Sold The World".

✨✧ David BowieStation To Station (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
RCA/Parlophone, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.99
The second half of Bowie's Thin White Duke years in the studio – a record that's more cool and condensed than his Young American album – but equally sublime in its own sort of way! The format here is much more compact – with a small group working alongside Bowie, still with some currents of Philly soul – but also some of the darker tones that would come to the forefront during the Berlin years after this album's release – a mode that's maybe hinted at by the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. A few tracks are long, and build up beautifully – showing a new sort of subtlety from Bowie – and titles include the classic "Station To Station", plus "Golden Years", "Word On A Wing", "TVC 15", "Stay", and "Wild Is The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieWidth Of A Circle (2CD/book) ... CD
Parlophone, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $32.99 34.98
A hell of a package, even if you consider yourself a David Bowie completist – as the set brings together different strands of his music from the relatively "lost" year of 1970 – a brief time when Bowie wasn't issuing much in the way of records, yet still staying very alive at a creative level! One of the key parts of this set is the performances for the TV production The Looking Glass Murders (aka Pierrot In Turquoise) – an unusual theatrical performance that has these beautiful spare tunes sung by Bowie, often with just piano or guitar. There's also two different broadcast performances, both of which are way more than just live material of singles – a full long Sunday Show performances on the BBC, from February 1970 – and a shorter Sounds Of The 70s performances from March of 1970. Also great are a number of rare Mercury singles that came out during the year – including alternate mixes, promo mixes, and other versions of songs that were not on albums – some of which are also presented here in extra 2020 mixes. The whole thing comes in a very cool book-style cover – with lots of photos, including some from the shoot for Man Who Sold The World (the dress cover), and notes on the entire year and all the music. Titles include "Threepenny Pierrot", "Columbine", "Harlequin", "Fill Your Heart", "Karma Man", "Amsterdam", "Buzz The Fuzz", "Waiting For The Man", "London Bye Ta Ta (1970 stereo mix)", "Memory Of A Free Festival (single version parts 1 & 2)", and "Holy Holy".

GorillazSong Machine – Season One ... LP
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy ... $21.99 22.99
A record that's a bit of an anomaly, given that it was created in the time of Covid – as the Gorillaz work here with a whole host of guest stars – in the kind of musical party that most local authorities would shut down! Yet given the virtual nature of the group – the core of Damon Albarn and Remi Kabaka – the approach is a great one for the very unusual year of 2020 – as they open the creative door to contributions from Beck, Schoolboy Q, Robert Smith, Elton John, Peter Hook, Fatoumata Diawara, St Vincent, Slowthai, Leee John, and others. The record is accompanied by the kind of graphics that have helped cement the mixed imaginary image of the band – and titles include "Strange Timez", "The Valley Of The Pagans", "The Lost Chord", "Momentary Bliss", "Dead Butterflies", "Friday 13th", and "Chalk Tablet Towers".

✨✧ HawkwindGreasy Truckers Party (with bonus tracks) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Parlophone, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A massive live set from Hawkwind – recorded early in the group's career, at a time when they were maybe at their space rock height – playing a concert gig as part of a special party in the UK! There's a really sinister vibe to the tracks – maybe because of the live setting, which somehow makes things sound more brooding and moody than usual – while the group tear through tunes that include "Brainstorm (jam)", "Welcome To The Future", "Born To Go", "Awakening", "You Shouldn't Do That", "This Is Your Captain Speaking", "Paranoia", and "Master Of The Universe". Features bonus tracks – "Master Of The Universe (orig 1972 LP mix)" and "Born To Go (orig 1972 LP mix)". LP, Vinyl record album

Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
A groundbreaking record from Kraftwerk – a set that unified the 70s worlds of analogue electronics and prog rock – yet somehow managed to set the scene for a whole new sound to come! The album's a treasure all the way through – slow-building, and with beautiful bubbling moments that have these surprisingly simple hooks – heard to best effect in the album's classic title cut "Autobahn" – but echoed nicely through the album's other longer tracks too – "Kometenmelodie 1 & 2", "Mitternacht", and "Morgenspaziergang".

✨✧ KraftwerkComputer World (neon yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
It's definitely a computer world when you're inside the mind of Kraftwerk – the machine made man, given a wonderful showcase here for the new decade! The sound is maybe a bit leaner and even more electronic than before – with the introduction of some digital elements, and a mix of beats and keyboards that was already showing the nascent hip hop scene that the German quartet were still ahead of the pack when it came to grooves like this! Did these guys invent electro soul? Hearing a record like this it's hard not to think so – thanks to tracks that include "Computer Love", "Computer World", "Pocket Calculator", "Home Computer", "Numbers", and "It's More Fun To Compute".

KraftwerkMan-Machine (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
Man and machine – a perfect summation of the Kraftwerk genius, delivered perfectly on this classic late 70s set! The album's got a bit more punch than some of their previous efforts – almost a not towards the dancefloor at times, yet hardly the disco you'd get from other groups of the period – and more a prefiguring of the sounds of the future from various UK and European sources! There's some great electro moments that made the record a favorite for the New York scene in the early 70s – including some wicked vocoder bits, and tight beats on a few numbers. Titles include the excellent "The Model" – plus "The Man Machine", "Neon Lights", "The Robots", "Spacelab", and "Metropolis". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound of Kraftwerk, updated for a whole new generation – almost as if the quartet had decided to show all the folks in 80s electro soul and the world of Detroit techno that they could still do things better than anyone else! The result is a set of fresh 1991 remixes of classics – still fortunately spare enough to retain all the charms of the originals, but sometimes with the groove picked up a bit for more contemporary dancefloors! Titles include "The Robots", "Computer Love", "Pocket Calculator", "Autobahn", "Radioactivity", "Trans Europe Express", "Metal On Metal", and "Music Non Stop". LP, Vinyl record album

Kling Klang/Parlophone, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
A mid-80s gem from Krafwerk – a record that almost caught the world by a bit of surprise, and which showed that the four robotic guys from Germany were alive and well! The influence of Kraftwerk on the sound of early 80s music is undeniable – from rock to soul to hip hop – yet here, the group remind us that they're still better at the game than most – using spareness to create a lot more than some of the more bombastic younger groups of the time – bringing warmth to the digital age in a way that so many others could not! Titles include "Boing Boom Tschak", "Techno Pop", "Musique Non Stop", "House Phone", "Sex Objekt", and "Electric Cafe". LP, Vinyl record album

St GermainTourist – 20th Anniversary Travel Versions ... CD
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A 20th anniversary celebration of the groundbreaking album Tourist from St Germain – that creative combination of jazz and dancefloor rhythms that made for one of the biggest hits on Blue Note at the start of the century! This set's not an expanded version of that set, though – as the sound is really updated and taken into new directions with a whole host of guests – making for a record that's maybe more of a tribute to the original than any sort of typical anniversary package! St Germain works with a whole host of global contributors – and titles include versions of "Rose Rouge" by Atjazz, Terry Laird, Ron Trent, Nightmares on wax, and Jovonn – plus "Sure Thing" taken by Osunlade, Black Motion, DJ Deep, and Jullian Gomes – as well as "So Flute (2020 version)" by St Germain, and "What You Think About (rejammed remix)" by Traumer.

VariousPsyche France Vol 7 – 1970s (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/Parlophone (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
A really cool entry in this ultra-hip series – a volume that moves a bit more into the 70s than previous ones, but still hangs onto all the wonderfully wild touches that makes the music so great! As you'd guess by the "psyche" in the title, there's certainly some psychedelic influences at play here – but the music is also a bit more built up from all those very cool elements that always made the French scene so different than the rest – that mode of the Serge Gainsbourg generation letting their hair down a bit more, picking up their guitars, but also opening the door to influences from jazz and other global music. Most of these cuts aren't really out there on the reissue market in any other format – and titles include "Vole Vole Vole" by Presence, "Donne" by Richard Contell, "D'Un Jour A L'Autre" by Richard Lable, "Neptune" by Michel Ripoche, "Je Suis Julliet" by Edwige, "L'Ile De Paques" by Guy Skornik, "Les Scandales" by Gilbert Deflez, and "Tu As Tape Du Pied" by Jean Yves Lievaux.

Yet the work is a key chapter of their career – well-produced by Dave Edmunds, and featuring titles that include "Married Woman", "Get A Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Little Queenie", "Tallahassie Lassie", "You Tore Me Down", "Slow Death", and two versions of "Shake Some Action" – one of which has a corrected mixdown speed!

✨✧ Candi StatonTrouble, Heartaches, & Sadness – The Lost Fame Sessions Masters (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Fame/Parlophone (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of rare deep soul from the great Candi Staton – a female singer that we'd rank right up there with Mavis Staples and Bettye Lavette for sheer power and sense of feeling! Candi recorded her best early work for the Fame label in Muscle Shoals, but not all of it was issued back in the day – and this vinyl release brings together all of those rare tracks for the first time ever – really well-crafted material, not demo tracks or clunkers – but some overlooked gems, including cuts penned by the great George Jackson! All work features the crack Muscle Shoals musicians, and impeccable production by Rick Hall – and titles include "One More Hurt", "Slipping Away", "I'll Be Here", "Are You Just Building Me Up", "Trouble Heartaches & Sadness", "Do Right Woman", "I Gave A Little & Lost A Lot", "Where Were You", and "Spread Your Love On Me".

✨✧ David BowieYoung Americans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

A big crossover moment for Peter Tosh – a set that was issued on the Rolling Stones own label, with a bit of help from Keith and Mick themselves! But if that makes you worry about some clunky effort that tries to blend rock and reggae, you can put all your fears aside – as the set's got all the soulful charm that made Tosh one of the true giants of the 70s – potentially as influential as Bob Marley, especially at the time – and working with rock-solid help from Sly and Robbie on rhythms, and Mao Chung on lead guitar, Fender Rhodes, and even a bit of moog! Tracks include "You Gotta Walk Don't Look Back", "Pick Myself Up", "Soon Come", "Moses The Prophet", "Stand Firm", "Dem Ha Fe Get A Beatin", and "Creation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David BowieDiamond Dogs (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Parlophone, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing departure for David Bowie – hardly the kind of record you would expect from his oboe-filled tunes of a few years before – and really the start of the groundbreaking, earthshaking, reinventionist era of his genius! There's a spacious, soaring quality to Space Oddity that's every bit the kind of magical music you might hope for in a set recorded at the close of the 60s – a shift into new modes, new sounds that seem to suck up all the best influences in rock from the previous few years, but fuse it into a new cosmic vision for the next decade. And while others might stumble on cliche with the weight of such a task, Bowie pulls it off brilliantly – mixing his fuzzier feelings with some of his more personal leanings – and showcasing a newly deep sense of songwriting here that's really amazing. Some tunes have the sensitivity of work on Hunky Dory, while others burn with the fire of Man Who Sold The World – all in a balance that never sounds schizophrenic at all. Titles include"Space Oddity", "Memory Of A Free Festival", "God Knows I'm Good", "Cygnet Committee", and "Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dazed". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David BowieWho Can I Be Now – 1974 to 1976 (12 CD set) ... CD
Parlophone, Mid 70s. New Copy 12 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Some really incredible years in the career of David Bowie – served up here in a massive package that's overflowing with rare and obscure material! The years 1974 to 1976 were a time of great fame for Bowie – post Ziggy Stardust, in the middle of this Thin White Duke years, and showing a growing love for American soul music – all of which comes through in the mindblowing sounds on these records! Yet this was also a time of new ideas, rich experimentation, and some other side projects that didn't all see the light of day – which means that the copious amount of material in this set goes way beyond the core albums that are included – Diamond Dogs, Young Americans, David Live, and Station To Station. Young Americans is one of our favorite Bowie albums ever – recorded at the legendary Sigma Sound soul studios in Philadelphia, with help from Luther Vandross – and the collection also features The Gouster, a full album of unreleased tracks from those sessions, appearing here for the first time! The set also features a special album Re:Call 2 – with rare single versions, b-sides, and other rare material – plus Live Nassau Coliseum 1976, different mixes of some of the albums, great packaging, and copious notes as well.

✨✧ Idle RaceBirthday Party (2CD version – mono/stereo with bonus tracks) ... CD
Parlophone/Grapefruit (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A classic album from Idle Race – an incredible pre-ELO, pre-Move group that featured some amazing work from a young Jeff Lynne! The music is a great mix of trippy and catchy styles – and in a way, the work here is almost more ELO than some of the earliest albums issued by that band a few years later – which was sometimes a bit heavier overall. Instead, Idle Race almost work in a 60s version of the pop-styled groove that Lynne would bring to ELO during their mighty mid 70s run – with a great flair for catchy hooks, and a style of production that was in the same flanged-out, cross-speaker compressed mode that would become the Jeff Lynne trademark in years to come (think especially "Mr Blue Sky" or "Diary Of Horace Wimp"). Titles include "On With The Show", "Sitting In My Tree", "I Like My Toys", "The Birthday", "The Skeleton & The Roundabout", "End Of The Road", and "The Lady Who Said She Could Fly". Great 2CD pressing – with the full 13 track album in both stereo and mono – plus bonus material that includes "Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree", "My Father's Son", "Imposers Of Life's Magazine", "Sitting In My Tree (alt)", "Lucky Man (alt)", "Days Of The Broken Arrows", "Worn Red Carpet", and "Follow Me Follow (alt)".

The track is backed by "Thieves Like Us" – a fantastically tuneful single from New Order – but one that also still has the group at their best pre-pop level – catchy, but moody at the same time – with really strong basswork from Peter Hook, and a keyboard line that's light and dreamy as a nice contrast! 12-inch, Vinyl record
