✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used ... $2.99
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties".

Velvet UndergroundWhite Light/White Heat (180 gram turquoise vinyl pressing) ... LP
Verve, 1968. New Copy 2LP gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 34.99
One of the most far-out, freaked-out albums ever from the Velvet Underground – easily the most experimental set the group ever recorded! The album's awash in really unusual sounds and styles – from the sonic blast of the title cut "White Light/White Heat", to the 17 minute garage/psych jam of "Sister Ray" to the very odd "The Gift" – which is a creepy story about cuckolding, told with voice and instrumentation split over different stereo channels! Other tunes offset the darkness with an eerie touch of sweet – and include "Here She Comes Now", "Lady Godiva's Operation", and "I Heard Her Call My Name". Arguably one of the Velvets' most influential moments – even if it's also one of their least commercially successful! This great 2LP package features loads of sweet extra bits – including "I Heard Her Call My Name (alternate)", "Hey Mr Rain (version one)", "Temptation Inside Your Heart (original mix)", "Stephanie Says (orig mix)", "Beginning To See The Light (early version)", "Hey Mr Rain (version two)", and "Guess I'm Falling In Love (instrumental)".

Polydor, Late 60s. New Copy 2CDs ... $19.99 21.99
A really well-done collection of tracks, designed to accompany the Velvet Underground film from director Todd Haynes – a set that mixes VU classics with some rare moments by the group, and a few tracks by other artists that help set the scene for their sound and inspirations! The package is a double-length set, produced by the director himself – and titles include "The Wind" by Nolan Strong & The Diablos, "17 XII 63 NYC The Fire Is A Mirror (excerpt)" by The Theater Of Eternal Music, "Road Runner (live)" by Bo Diddley, "The Ostrich" by The Primitives, and "Chelsea Girls" by Nico – plus Velvet Underground tracks that include "Heroin (mono version)", "Sister Ray (live)", "After Hours (live version 1)", "Foggy Notion", "Ocean", "Sweet Jane", "All Tomorrow's Parties", "I'm Waiting For The Man", "Sunday Morning", "Venus In Furs", and "Pale Blue Eyes".

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundLoaded – Fully Loaded Edition (2CDs – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Rhino, 1970. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The end of the road for the Velvet Underground – but a set that's also one of the group's best-remembered albums too! The record marked a big shift for the group – a move to Atco from Verve, continuing to work without John Cale – and the sound is possibly more rockish and straight ahead than some of their previous efforts (certainly compared to White Light/White Heat) – but always with that dark edge that Lou Reed could bring to the music! In a way, the whole thing's almost a recasting of all the advances made in 60s rock, but seen through a lens that shows the darker corners and shadows that have crept up alongside – that kind of subtle, yet extremely powerful quality that Reed would bring to his long run of solo albums in the 70s – but served up here with more of an edge, in the definite VU fashion. Titles include the seminal classics – "Sweet Jane" and "Rock & Roll", plus "Cool It Down", "New Age", "Head Held High", "Lonesome Cowboy Bill", "Oh Sweet Nuthin", and "I Found A Reason". Discs one and two of this expanded edition also include alternate versions of several songs – loads of great bonus tracks, including some of the unreleased Velvets gems from the time! CD
(Very cool edition – with 2CDs, bonus tracks, die-cut slipcover, and cool lenticular image!)

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground (3rd LP) ... CD
Verve, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The incredible third album from The Velvet Underground – and maybe our favorite of all their albums together – even though this one is far less weird or experimental than the rest! After their initial foray with Nico, and their bombastic sonic experiments on White Light/White Heat, the VU hit this wonderfully subtle territory here – these really personal, moody songs that still have all the knowledge of the wilder sounds of previous records, but which take those farther reaches and bring them back to more focused songwriting – with results that are completely sublime! There's no side-long jams, nor any fuzzy freakouts – but instead, the album's filled with these wonderful songs that really show Lou Reed really honing his craft – able to touch on all the seamy edges of late 60s counterculture, without ever having to hit you over the head – and likewise, the band's instrumentation has this way of using all their wider knowledge of noise and sound in these really refined ways – at a level that opened the door for so many other generations to come. The result is a masterpiece all the way through – and every track is a landmark of dark genius – on titles that include "Pale Blue Eyes", "After Hours", "I'm Set Free", "That's The Story Of My Life", "Candy Says", "What Goes On", and "Jesus".

Maureen Tucker and John Cale were indeed MIA at this point, making it Lou's show all the way, performing his soon to be seminal songs from throughout the REAL band's too-short existence – and tracks include "I'm Waiting For My Man", "Sweet Jane", "Lonesome Cowboy Bill", "Sunday Morning", "Femme Fatale", "After Hours", and "New Age".

Verve, 1968/1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A slice of Velvet Underground that's almost as essential as the group's first few albums for Verve – material recorded during those years, but never issued at the time – finally put together in a legitimate package in the mid 80s, after years of circulating around as bootlegs! The songwriting here is really great – a strong extension of the group's work on White Light White Heat and their third, self-titled album – especially the latter, because there's some nicely sweet and spacey moments. Titles include "Stephanie Says", "Ocean", "I Can't Stand It", "Foggy Notion", "I'm Sticking With You", "Temptation Inside Your Heart", "Lisa Says", "One Of These Days", "Andy's Chest", and "She's My Best Friend".

✨✧ Steven BlushNew York Rock – From The Rise Of The Velvet Underground To The Fall Of CBGB ... Book
St Martins, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's quite a cover photo on the book – and the interweaving of key talents in the image really gets at the style of the narrative within! Author Steven Blush delivers a decidedly one-sided document of the New York scene from the late 60s onward – a picture of countless creative musicians, working alongside each other to create sounds that would go onto transform a generation – often in ways that were strongly inspired by the city itself. The book is less of a long story, than a history that encapsulates moments, focuses on figures – and even lays out groups in some index-styled passages – showing their strengths and weaknesses, and often augmenting the text with countless comments from singers and musicians who were part of the scene. In a manner similar to other rock books in recent years, Blush allows plenty of space for other folks' voices – sometimes almost making the whole thing feel like an oral history of the New York scene, but one that's directed by his own choices and sense of structure. The softcover book is almost 500 pages long, and has a fair bit of black and white photos too. Book

✨✧ Elmer Gantry's Velvet OperaLong Nights Of Summer – The Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera Anthology (3CD set) ... CD
Direction/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 30.99
Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera weren't the biggest group on the British scene of the late 60s, but they were certainly one of the coolest – as you'll hear on this massive collection that brings together all their key work of the time! First up is the self-titled debut album – stunner of a set from a group who should have been huge – especially given the sharpness and wit of this debut album! Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera bring together all the best strands of up and coming Brit rock of the time – a bit of psych undercut with some bluesy elements, marked by a moddish smirk that really keeps the whole thing punched-up throughout – no overindulgence, no easy mark for a hit – just a very individual sensibility that few of the group's underground contemporaries could match! These guys come across with all the personality of The Who in Happy Jack/Magic Bus years – and have a similar use and distance of trippy elements of the time – almost tongue in cheek, but just because they find a way to shift between them and straighter rock so easily. Songs are all great, and really well-written – and apart from a version of Oscar Brown Jr's "I Was Cool", the set features original material that includes "Mother Writes", "Mary Jane", "Flames", "Lookin For A Happy Life", and "Walter Sly Meets Bill Bailey". Next is the group's second album Ride A Hustler's Dream – a set that maybe has the group bringing in more blues influences to the music at times, but mostly as a way to let both the guitar work and vocals get even fuller and strongly expressed – which means that when the psychedelic elements come into the mix, there's an even more powerful vibe than on their debut album too! Titles include "Black Jack Davy", "Ride A Hustler's Dream", "Honey By", "Anna Dance Square", "Depression", "Warm Day In July", and the very cool "Raga" – and a great remake of "Eleanor Rigby". 3CD set features the debut album in a rare promo-only mono mix, plus 34 bonus tracks that include "There's A Hole In My Pocket", "She Keeps Giving Me These Feelings", "The Painter", "And I Remember", "Talk Of The Devil", "Dreamy", "Volcano", "A Quick B", and lots more – including singles and BBC tracks too!

✨✧ VariousRevolution – Underground Sounds Of 1968 (3CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), 1968. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing sounds from the morning after the Summer Of Love – a time when the UK scene really woke up to some vast musical changes – a good number of which are represented in this overstuffed set! The package does a great job of catching that special shift in modes from groups who might have been straighter mod, rock, folk, or R&B just a year or two before – and who now are really letting their hair down (and probably growing it too!) – finding confidence to work out loads of new ideas of their own, and really set the scene for musical modes that would shape the world for the next decade or so! A few of these artists cracked the charts at the time, some might hit fame in the 70s, but most of the acts are those who were part of an underground hip scene from the moment they first recorded – and still stayed that way for many decades to come. The mix of modes here is great – and as always with Cherry Red/Esoteric, there's a nice booklet of notes that really illuminates the music. 52 tracks in all – with work by The Moles, Tomorrow, Caravan, Ten Years After, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Fleetwood Mac, Van Der Graaf Generator, Second Hand, Eyes Of Blue, Eclection, John Martyn, Love Sculpture, Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera, Jethro Tull, Giles Giles & Fripp, Pretty Thinbs, Dave Mason, Barclay James Harvest, The Aquarian Age, The Move, Gun, Deep Purple, The Bystanders, Dantalian's Chariot, Blonde On Blonde, Eyes Of Blue, and many more.

Fallen AngelsIt's A Long Way Down (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Roulette/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 27.99
A really rare batch of garage psych from late 60s DC scene – served up on a record that barely got any circulation at the time! The oft-overlooked Fallen Angels were signed to Roulette in the late 60s, and the group only made a couple of albums – Roulette bailed when it became obvious that the group proved to be a bit challenging of a sell – but over the years their work has gone on to be the stuff of underground legend! Most of the tunes start with loose, ragged feel that eventually builds into a feedback frenzy – more controlled than groups those of groups like the Stooges and Velvet Underground – before finding the groove again and landing gently on their feet – a great approach that really shows just how tight and well-conceived these guys were overall. Titles include "Poor Old Man", "A Horn Playing On My Thin Wall", "Tell You A Story", "One Of The Few Ones Left", Didn't I", and "It's A Long Way Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Flying Burrito BrothersHot Burritos – The Flying Burritos Brothers Anthology 1969 to 1972 (Gilded Palace Of Sin/Burrito Deluxe/Flying Burrito Brothers/bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $5.99 14.99
A set that's way more than just a "best of" sort of anthology – as the package features three full albums by the group, plus other material too! The set begins with the classic debut, Gilded Palace Of Sin – a true late 60s rock masterpiece – and like albums by Love and The Velvet Underground, a set that barely made a mainstream impact at the time – but which has gone on to be the stuff of influence and legend over the decades! The album's the first from Gram Parsons and the group – one of only two they would cut together – and the whole thing is a perfect blend of rough-edged rock and country influences rising up from the LA scene – all those glimmers of brilliance that Parsons had brought to the Byrds and other projects, maybe given their full flowering here in a mode that's unabashed about its country music influences – maybe even more so than some of Gram's later solo work. Sneeky Pete Kleinow's steel guitar really adds a lot – but so does the presence of Chris Hillman on guitar and mandolin, and Chris Ethridge on bass and piano. Titles include the brilliant "Sin City" – a track we'll love until we die – plus "Christine's Tune", "Do Right Woman", "Dark End Of The Street", "My Uncle", "Wheels", "Juanita", "Hot Burrito No 1", "Hot Burrito No 2", "Do You Know How It Feels", and "Hippy Boy". Burrito Deluxe is the second of only two albums recorded by Gram Parsons with the Flying Burrito Brothers – and a masterpiece that pushes the group's sound even farther than their debut! The set is filled with special moments – songs that show just why these guys were such a special bridge between late 60s country and rock music – and why all of the other groups they inspired just never came close to serving things up this well! Gram Parsons is fantastic on vocals, of course – but the whole group is great, especially Sneaky Pete on steel guitar. Titles include the fantastic romper "Man In The Fog", the very groovy "Lazy Days", the haunting "God's Own Singer", and the group's Jagger/Richards' approved take on "Wild Horses – plus other cuts that include "High Fashion Queen", "Image Of Me", "Older Guys", and "If You Gotta Go". Flying Burrito Brothers is The Burritos first LP, post-Parsons – and a pretty strong statement for the merits of the now unquestioned leader, Rick Roberts, and multi-instrumentalist new guy Bernie Leadon, who would later turn to the dark side and join the Eagles! Roberts penned or co-penned seven of the album's ten tunes, including "Colorado", "Hand To Mouth", "Just Can't Be", and "Four Days Of Rain". His contributions are for the most part nicely fragile, with just the right doses of sweetness and sadness. The group also covers Merle Haggard's "White Line Fever", Gene Clark's "Tried So Hard", and Dylan's "To Ramona". This is one of the band's rarer LPs, probably because of the absence of hipster hero Gram Parsons – truly a worthy piece of work! CD also features some other tracks recorded by Parsons with the group – including "Six Days On The Road", "Break My Mind", "Sing Me Back Home", and "Close Up The Honky Tonks" – and live tracks "Ain't That A Lot Of Love" and "Losing Game" – plus Gene Clark singing on "Here Tonight".

Polygram/Future Shock (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
The first solo album by Rita Lee – cut back when she was a member of the groundbreaking Tropicalia trio, Os Mutantes! The album's got a very different feel than her work with that group – and has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after leaving the Velvet Underground – and at a level that opens a whole new side of the singer's talents! Arrangements have a weird twisted edge – as Rita makes her way through a set of originals and a few covers, in an almost deadpan, ice-blond mode that reminds us of some of Jane Birkin's early work. Arrangements are by the great Rogerio Duprat, and titles include "Sucesso, Aqui Vou Eu", "Prisioneira Do Amor", "Hulla Hulla", "Tempo Nublado", "Precisamos De Irmaos", and "Calma" – plus a nice cover of "And I Love Him".

Mott The HoopleAll The Young Dudes ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good- ... $7.99
Maybe the most classic of all the Mott The Hoople albums of the early 70s – thanks in part to the classic title track, which was given to the group by David Bowie! Yet that hit is only one of many gems within – all delivered in a style that shows that Ian Hunter and the group were maybe in the territory of Mick Ronson and Bowie before they find their way with Ziggy – delivered here perfectly on tunes that have all the best elements of glam, but maybe more hard rock permanence and lyrical sensitivity too! In addition to "All The Young Dudes", the set also features a great remake of the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" – and the cuts "Soft Ground", "Sea Diver", "Sucker", "Jerkin Crocus", and "Momma's Little Jewel".

NicoChelsea Girl ... CD
Verve, 1967. Used ... $5.99
One of the greatest records of the 60s – and a sublime debut from Nico, sounding fresher and less dreary here than on many of her later sides – although still pretty chilling overall! The record features larger orchestral backings on most tracks – never too heavy, but with light strings that really help Nico depart from the sound of her work with The Velvet Underground. This style adds a new level of sophistication to her vocals, and really helps in her interpretation of the unusual material culled for the set – tunes that include a few key numbers by old partners in The Velvets, as well as some especially great tracks by a young Jackson Browne – a romantic interest of Nico at the time! The whole thing's incredible – on a par with the best from Scott Walker during the same stretch, although very different overall – and a key entry in the darker side of the non-hippie end of the 60s spectrum. Titles include "These Days", "It Was A Pleasure Then", "Eulogy To Lenny Bruce", and the incredible title cut, "Chelsea Girls". Fantastic! CD

A nice blend of scaled down acoustic folk psychedelia and most tripped out bits with flute, organ and hand percussion from Dutch singer & guitar player Ton Vlasman – his rare White Room With Disintegrating Walls from the dawn of the 70s! A couple of the vocal and acoustic guitar centered tunes have a Dylan-esque feel, but in a more spaced out, strange realm – and overall the tunes have some spare, darkness tinged atmosphere. Vlasman composed most of it, and a lot of it is instrumental, but it includes a wild cover of the Velvet Underground's "Pale Blue Eyes", plus "To Sell", "Fight With A Circular Course", "Story Of Too Many Prisoners", "The End", "Walking In A Country Lane" and more.

VariousAtlanta Soul Artistry 1965 to 1975 ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
Overlooked work from the underground soul scene in Atlanta – a southern city that wasn't as famous for its music as Memphis or Muscle Shoals, but which really helped the sound of soul step forward at the start of the 70s! The Atlanta groove is a bit different than that of neighboring cities – sometimes a bit tighter, with uptempo funk that's already pointing the way towards the second half of the 70s – mixed with deep soul vocals that still showcase the southern origin of most of these cuts, even when they're getting a bit of help from visiting Chicago talents in the studio! A number of cuts were unissued at the time, and they're mixed with singles from the GRC, Aware, and Hotlanta labels – in a set of tracks that include "Don't Let Me Know" by Charlie Thomas, "Big Boat Ride" by Dorothy Norwood, "I'm Tired Of Dreaming" by Joe Hinton, "You Were Right On Time" by Ripple, "You Get To Me" by Lee Brackett, "It's Got To Be The Real Thing" by John Edwards, "Is That Any Way To Treat A Lady" by Jimmy Lewis, "Complain To The Clouds" by Deep Velvet, "Since We Said Goodbye" by The Counts, "I'm A Dreamer" by Bobby Burn, "I'm Leaving" by Joe Graham, "Fight Fire With Fire" by King Hannibal, and "You Ain't For Real" by Arthur Alexander.

The package digs way way deeper than the usual "mod hits of the 60s" set – and features a stunning array of really rare singles we'd never heard before – all presented with great fidelity, and a heavy booklet that includes track-by-track notes on every single gem in the collection. Fuzzy guitar mixes with jazzy hammond, garagey grooves, and loads of other vintage touches – and the set features 80 tracks that include "Something's Coming Alng" by The Schepters, "Cornflake Zoo" by Andy Ellison, "Major Catastrophe" by Katch 22", "Summer Leaves Me With A Sigh" by Tuesday's Children, "Gimme Gimme Some Shade" by The Untamed, "Smokestack Lightning" by The Others, "I'm Leaving" by The Tribe, "Make Your Mark Little Man" by National Pinion Pole, "Touch Of Velvet Sting Of Brass" by The Mood Mosaic, "Archipelgo" by The Underground Set, and "Sookie Sookie" by The Valentines.

VariousPraise Poems – A Journey Into Deep, Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 70s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. Used ... $14.99
One of the coolest, hippest compilations we've heard in years – and a set that uncovers a whole new style of underground grooves from the 70s! The work here is definitely in the funk, soul, and jazz territory of other compilations – but it's also got a unique vibe of its own, too – surprisingly personal at times, which a genre-blending mode that often has jazz-based vocals mixing with funkier rhythms – which then often get odd arrangements and unusual production! The quality's almost a bit in Stark Reality territory – or maybe like some of the best Yesterdays New Quintet records from more recent years – with lots of super-dope elements in the rhythms and instrumentation, and this great vibe to the production that really opens up something new. A stunning set, really – one of the hippest musical discoveries we've heard in a long time – with titles that include "Alone Again" by Jorge Darden, "Tribute To Ruffian" by Innerflight, "Carefree" by Larry Covin, "Dragon Rock" by The PTS, "Let Me Down Easy" by Bold Breed, "Wait For Me" by Bobby Stroup, "Black Velvet Soul" by Cookie Thomas & CT Band, "Cold Soul" by Gemstones, "Solemn Solitude" by Seeds Of Fulfillment, and "Strawberries Raspberries" by Don Hales.

✨✧ Brian EnoHere Come The Warm Jets ... CD
Virgin/Astralwerks, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that blew the world away when it was first released – and still continues to delight all these many years later! Brian Eno had first rose to fame in Roxy Music – where his sonic sensibilities and ear for electronic experimentation really added a lot to their initial albums – and here, on his own, he's in somewhat side-stepped territory – mixing things up in the art/glam generation of Roxy and Bowie, but also already showing a darkness that really sets him apart from the pack! The first three songs alone are a hell of a statement from any musician in the 70s, and the titles alone almost get at their impact – "Needles In The Camel's Eye", "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch", and "Baby's On Fire" – all songs that offer a rare blend of ferocity and humor that wouldn't emerge elsewhere until the punk movement. Yet Eno's hardly the forerunner of punk, but he's also not glam, metal, or anything else – a supremely impactful artist with this record, completely in his own space – like a rare breed that might include The Velvet Underground, Gram Parsons, or Bowie. Titles include "Needles In The Camel's Eye", "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch", "Baby's On Fire" "Blank Frank", "Some Of Them Are Old", "Cindy Tells Me", "On Some Faraway Beach", and "Dead Finks Don't Talk".

✨✧ Mott The HoopleAll The Young Dudes ... CD
Columbia, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the most classic of all the Mott The Hoople albums of the early 70s – thanks in part to the classic title track, which was given to the group by David Bowie – who also supported the group with some fantastic production on this record too! Yet that hit is only one of many gems within – all delivered in a style that shows that Ian Hunter and the group were maybe in the territory of Mick Ronson and Bowie before they find their way with Ziggy – delivered here perfectly on tunes that have all the best elements of glam, but maybe more hard rock permanence and lyrical sensitivity too! In addition to "All The Young Dudes", the set also features a great remake of the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" – and the cuts "Soft Ground", "Sea Diver", "Sucker", "Jerkin Crocus", and "Momma's Little Jewel".

✨✧ NicoDrama Of Exile (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Aura/Modern Harmonic, 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The stunning rebirth of Nico at the start of the 80s – a set that was done many years after her previous record, The End – and one that shows the ex-Velvet Underground singer finding a whole new style for her music! Nico's still very dark and moody – as you'd guess from her heroin-ravaged look on the cover – and the music here shows some of the influence of the Bowie/Eno experiments of the late 70s, mixed with some of the new territory opened up by post-punk too – all given this sharp sound with lots of guitar lines from Mahamad Hadi, who almost acts like the Robert Quine to Nico's Lou Reed! Speaking of Lou, the album features a stunningly great remake of "Waiting For The Man" – whose subject Nico was probably more familiar with by this time than anyone else – plus the tunes "Orly Flight", "The Sphinx", "Genghis Khan", "Purple Lips", "One More Chance", "Henry Hudson", and a remake of "Heroes". CD features 8 more bonus tracks – alternate takes of every tune on the record! CD

✨✧ Lou ReedConey Island Baby ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lou Reed's maybe a bit more subtle here than during his years with the Velvet Underground, and his earliest solo records – but he also has this new sort of maturity that really points the way forward to the years to come! Coney Island Baby further marks the continuing legacy of Lou Reed as a hell of a songwriter – able to portray human strivings and failings with a surprisingly sensitive ear – all in the kind of modes that might not hit you over the head the first time around, but which are completely compelling over the next few spins. There's always that wry little quality to Reed's vocals here – that bite that almost comes as a weary attempt to snap back at the world – and while the album's maybe not the most transgressive release of 1976, it's got a subtle power that's made it a lot more long-lasting than some of its contemporaries. Titles include "Crazy Feeling", "Charly's Girl", "A Gift", "Ooohhh Baby", "Coney Island Baby", and "She's My Best Friend". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Os MutantesOs Mutantes (1968) (180 gram LP with bonus CD) ... LP
Polydor/Lilith (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from late 60s Brazil! This is the first – and the wildest – album by this legendary group that was one of the founding forces of the Tropicalia movement – a brilliant musical statement that easily ranks with some of the most groundbreaking late 60s American work by The Velvet Underground, Captain Beefheart, or The Stooges! The music is a wonderful blend of 60s rock and early MPB – hard-driving with plenty of guitars, but also produced with beautifully baroque touches that echo through simultaneous albums by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – both of whose 1969 albums are strongly resonant with this one. In fact, Caetano contributed a number of tracks to the album, including "Panis et Circenses", "Bat Macumba", "Trem Fantastma", and his great "Baby", which is done fantastically here. Great stuff all 'round! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rita LeeBuild Up – Serie Estreia ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first solo album by Rita Lee – cut back when she was a member of the groundbreaking Tropicalia trio, Os Mutantes! The album's got a very different feel than her work with that group – and has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after leaving the Velvet Underground – and at a level that opens a whole new side of the singer's talents! Arrangements have a weird twisted edge – as Rita makes her way through a set of originals and a few covers, in an almost deadpan, ice-blond mode that reminds us of some of Jane Birkin's early work. Arrangements are by the great Rogerio Duprat, and titles include "Sucesso, Aqui Vou Eu", "Prisioneira Do Amor", "Hulla Hulla", "Tempo Nublado", "Precisamos De Irmaos", and "Calma" – plus a nice cover of "And I Love Him". CD
