ArgusArgus ... LP
Sommor (Spain), 1973. New Copy ... $25.99
Plenty of fuzz, heavy drums, and basslines that certainly make our speakers rumble – all in support of the raw lead vocals that really send the whole thing home! Argus are an obscure UK hard rock quartet from the early 70s – and their near-complete work is presented here, with a searing intensity that should have gotten these guys a big label contract at the time – especially when guitarist Del Watkins really takes off with his solos! The set also features a few tracks by Anaconda – a later incarnation of the group, added here to round out the five Argus tracks – and that later group actually features some jazzy flute, which is a nice touch. Argus titles include "Road Of Life", "Friend Of Mine", "Twenty Four Hours", and "Superstition" – and Anaconda titles include "Funk Song", "Jubilee Shuffle", and "77 St Thomas Road".

Electric FuneralWild Performance ... LP
Sommor (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
Raw work from a Swiss band at the start of the 70s – a collection of live recordings and rehearsal tapes, but more than enough to have created a strong sense of legend about the band! These guys are heavy on full-on fuzz, have drumming that mixes hard rock with some more garagey elements – and the recording quality of all the tracks only seems to intensify the quality of their work – a really insane, very raw approach that would have really been something, had they ever managed to get some time in the studio with the right sort of producer! The set was initially launched on the world in 1991, and has become the stuff of legend since then – and titles include "To Be One", "People", "Black Pages", "Rock Be Rock", "You Can Help", "We're Gonna Change The World", and "Fly Away".

Second SignSecond Sign ... LP
Sommor (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A lost bit of prog from the UK scene of the 70s – an obscure record that appeared right before the birth of punk, but which carries plenty more echoes of the generation before – especially in the way the hard-jamming guitars can really take off on a riff and fly into a frenzy! The group's got an unusual female vocalist, Irene Menasche – with a style that's almost borrowed more from the acid folk generation, but taken to sharper territory next to these great guitars – almost with a spooky sort of Grace Slick vibe at times, which makes for a nice surprise. Titles include the long "Golden Age" – plus "Vicious Cheeks", "Hard To Get Along With", "Grand Britannia", "Mad River", and "Don't Take It For Granted". LP, Vinyl record album

Three Headed DogHound Of Hades ... LP
Sommor (Spain), 1973. New Copy ... $19.99
Cerberus rises with plenty of bite – in this rare hard rock trio album from the early 70s British scene! Three Headed Dog never hit the heights of their contemporaries, but work in modes that definitely echo the best of the hard rock groups of the period – heavy bass, drums, and lots of long-drawn guitar parts from Ray Moore – who's also the lead singer of the group! Despite the reference to mythology, the strongest currents of the group's sound aren't far from the blues-inspired rock that first got the harder rock generation going – on tracks that include "Gone Blue", "Just Gotta Play", "Slick Solution", "Cerberus", and "Butterfly".

✨✧ McPheeMcPhee ... LP
Sommor (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An Australian group from the start of the 70s – one with a very striking female lead singer named Faye Lewis, who works with a range and power that rivals the young Grace Slick at her best – moving through a sweet blend of fuzz guitar and keyboards with a mighty sharp sound! The group aren't above taking on songs by others, but they deliver their music in a hard-jamming style that really makes the tunes their own – not just from the vocals of Lewis, but also from the interplay between Jim Deverell on organ and electric piano, and Tony Joyce on some fast-flying guitar! The heavy organ lines mixed with Faye's vocals almost recall some of the groovier work from Brian Auger and Julie Driscoll – especially right near the end – and titles include "Superstar", "Out To Lunch", "Indian Rope Man", "Southern Man", "Sunday Shuffle", and "The Wrong Time".

Plastic PennyTwo Sides Of A Penny ... LP
Page One, 1968. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A great little record from a British group who grew out of a single studio pop hit – then quickly emerged as something else entirely! Singer Brian Keith recorded the leadoff hit as a single, without the band – but man, once a group was put together, things really got interesting – as Keith's compelling, soulful vocals get sublime support from the organ of Paul Raymond, guitar of Mike Graham, bass of Tony Murray, and drums of a young Nigel Olsson – who'd later go on to great fame in the 70s! The territory has echoes of the soul and blues of the mod years – but the complexity of the organ lines, and some of the rhythms, make for a more baroque sound – maybe like Procol Harum at times, but with its very own vibe. Olsson and Raymond also sing a bit – and titles include "Everything I Am", "Genevieve", "Wake Me Up", "Mrs Grundy", "Take Me Back", "I Want You", "So Much Older Now", "No Pleasure Without Pain My Love", and a version of "Strawberry Fields Forever".
