Classic! Fragile is the one that catapulted Yes to unlikely stardom, and in so doing, it brought adventurous, proggy rock to mainstream audience – pretty much changing the face of rock for at least a decade to come! Rick Wakeman's arrival and his spacier electronic keyboards have a lot to do ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Katmandu ... LP Mainstream, Late 60s. Very Good ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the more soulful rock groups on late 60s Mainstream Records – but one that's still very much in the best psyche spirit of the label! Vocalist Norman Harris has a really great sound here – almost a mix of soul and rock influences that you might find in The Rascals, supported by ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A weird little record – but not without some nice moments! The record was produced and put together by Jan Hammer – and in many ways, is very much like his hard-jamming fusion work fo the time. Earle plays congas, timbales, moog, and other percussion – and also sings on a number ... (Jazz, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Catchy dawn of the 70s rock that's rooted in hooks and grooves, but taken to the next level with some killer piano and keys, and production touches! The group's best known for the sublime track that kicks this record off, "Something In The Air", which was covered pretty faithfully by the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Chicago on their third LP – still humming strong!

Although Jimmy Webb is best known to the world for the pop hits he gave LA when he was a wee wee lad ("MacArthur Park", "Up Up & Away", etc), he also has a lesser-known recording history, the better part of which is represented by his early recordings for Reprise. This ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including the insert. Cover has some wear.)
Sure, the cover's a bit dated – but the politics have stayed surprisingly strong over the years – as has the music as well! Keep in mind that The Clash were waging war in the Mideast years before Desert Storm – in this searing mix of London punk, rocksteady roots, and slight new ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
A folk pop gem that features a number of tunes with backing vocals by The Mamas & The Papas – a nice balance between McGuire's gruff, and often strident lyricism, and the glowing Cali sunshine of the Mamas & Papas. Features well known tunes, plus some nice ones written or co-written ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Classic kitschy biker material from Davie Allan and The Arrows – one of the best-ever groups to play on schlocky soundtracks during the 60s! There's lots of guitar and lots of fuzz – and guessing from the photos of the movie, the music was the best thing about it! Toddler Mike Curb ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Dave Mason's first solo album – and a pretty a great one! Alone Together wasn't a huge hit back in the day, but man is a ever a pleasing set.

(Marbled vinyl pressing, in the original fold-out cover.)
The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance! Back in the day, we used to wince when we heard these guys – but over the years, thanks to much rediscovery of the band by groove hounds, we've really come to like their work a lot. This first album especially has ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Possibly the last truly wonderful Wings album of the 70s – a monumental crossover record that smoothed out their groove a bit more and delivered some wonderful hits! Denny Laine is still in the group at this point, and titles include the classics "Let Em In" and "Silly Love ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Not as guitarry or AM-pop heavy as the group's earlier classics, but still a pretty nice little record nonetheless – filled with the kind of playful McCartney tunes that we've always loved, and carried off with an undeniable charm. Includes the hit "With A Little Luck", plus "F ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Tim ... LP Sire, 1985. Very Good+ ...
A big crossover classic for the champions of the Minneapolis scene – their first for Sire and featuring some of the greatest rock songs of the 80s, be it college radio, mainstream or any thing – greatness period!

An amazing document of this important southern scene – the soundtrack to a key rockumentary from the 80s, with a strong focus on the flowering of music in Athens, Georgia!

The Jimi Hendrix Experience in peak, fierce form at Winterland – compiled from the series of shows the trio put on at the iconic San Francisco ballroom over 3 days in October, 1968! Amazing stuff that's worthy of Jimi's legend – his own classic numbers performed here as loosely and ... read moreCD

One of the three great collaborations between David Bowie and Brian Eno – and possibly the ultimate statement from his years in Berlin!

Human League —
Dare ... CD Virgin (UK), 1981. Used ...
A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the ... read moreCD
