Surprisingly funky at times – and beautifully produced, too! Titles include "Funk #49", "Woman", "The Bomber", "Closet Queen", "Thanks", "Ashes In The Rain & I", and "Tend My Garden". LP, Vinyl record album
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Paul McCartney & Wings – a set that features killer hits and lesser-known gems – all woven into a fantastic 70s sonic tapestry! The production and presentation of the record are wonderful – the whole thing was virtually a pop art piece when ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a hype sticker.)
King Crimson —
USA ... LP Atlantic, 1975. Very Good ...
A pretty dark little record from the waning mid 70s version of King Crimson – recorded on tour in the US by a quartet of David Cross, Bill Bruford, John Wetton, and Robert Fripp. The tracks are mostly live takes of tunes from earlier albums – "Easy Money", "21st Century ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing. Cover has light wear.)
A great comeback moment for one of the seminal songwriters of 60s southern soul – heard here in a surprisingly faithful setting that really returns Dan Penn to his glory! The tunes include many numbers that Dan wrote, but which were made famous by other singers at the time – and ... (Soul, Rock)read moreCD
The collected work of a mighty trippy group from the Indian scene – a psychedelic combo who worked in the 70s, but who had the same sort of edge you'd hear from the American and British scenes of the late 60s! In truth, there's a fair bit of Anglo influence going on in the music – not ... read moreCD
One of the greatest moments ever from the mighty John Lydon – a record that maybe blows away all other albums by Public Image – and which also stands strongly next to the work of the Sex Pistols, but in a very different way! Lydon is quite far from punk rock roots here – and ... read moreCD
A cool combat-themed country rock record by The Red Rippers – largely the work of songwriter and Vietnam veteran Lt. Edwin Bankston – and a pretty riveting obscurity from the early 80s private press vaults! The sounds range from breezy, Creedence-styled backdrops and 70s outlaw country ... read moreCD
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 ... read moreCD
Caetano Veloso —
Singles ... CD Mercury (Japan), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ...
Amazing! This is a very cool 19-track CD that brings together all of the Caetano Veloso singles from his first 10 years, and it's a great batch of material that includes many tracks that haven't been on LPs, or any of the CD reissues we've been stocking! As with any major artist like this, the ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreCD
A great album from French combo Air – ingenious working on dual fronts – as the moody original score to Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, but it also works incredibly well as a stand-alone listening experience! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of ... read moreCD
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Leon Russell & New Grass Revival —
Live Album ... CD Wounded Bird, 1981. Used ...
An amazing document of the Brazilian post-punk scene – served up here with a stark, raw energy that easily matches any work at the time coming out of Sheffield, Manchester, New York, or Berlin! The groups on the set represent a core of the important underground of the period – all acts ... (Brazil, Rock)read moreCD
(Out of print. Small drill hole through one corner.)
Fleetwood Mac & Christine Perfect —
Albatross ... LP CBS/Embassy, 1977. Near Mint- ...
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a small sticker.)
Love ... LP Elektra, 1966. Near Mint- ...
Love's first album – a seminal bit of Sunset Strip rock, and every bit as powerful today as it was in the 60s! The style's a bit sharper-edged than the group's classic and more familiar Forever Changes set, but it's still pretty darn great – a completely fresh batch of guitar-heavy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
What can we say? This is one of the greatest albums of all time! The record's got a sound that's completely unique – as crack LA garage punk rock meets Hollywood baroque production, and the result is an amazing bit of loud guitar noise backed by strings and horns, all graced by the godlike ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Later black & red label pressing with SRC stamp.)
One of the most incredible rock albums of all time – Dylan's sprawling, shambling, poetic genius at it's most revolutionary if you ask us – the landmark Blonde On Blonde! It's got that surrealistic, 4AM and still bursting with creativity kind of feeling that he'd never even try to find ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear with some seam splitting.)
An essential record by The Smiths – even if it wasn't initially conceived as a full length album! The set brings together important early radio material by the group – but sounds that are recorded on a par with their album or single releases – yet often in slightly different ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Australian pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)
One of the few American releases by Mike Leander – the groovy 60s British arranger who skirted equal worlds of rock and easy! Leander's got a hip approach that's got plenty of late 60s psyche touches bubbling out underneath more straightforward arrangements – working some easy magic on ... (Now Sound, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A groovy little record from the great John Simon – an artist who's probably best known for his late 60s production work over at Columbia Records, but one who also managed to serve up this obscure little soundtrack for Warner Brothers too! The album's a mix of very cool instrumentals with ... (Soundtracks, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rare Earth —
Ecology ... LP Rare Earth/Motown, 1970. Very Good ...
A stone smoker from Rare Earth – recorded a a time when they were able to easily handle a groove made up of equal parts funk, rock, and soul! The vibe here is almost like War at times – not for the LA touches in the mix, but for the heady and heavy way these guys roll forward – ... (Soul, Rock)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Blistering early work from a young Georgie Fame – a set that definitely lives up to the Rhythm & Blues in the title! The set was recorded live at London's hip Flamingo club – and Georgie and The Blue Flames are very much in command of the crowd – burning with the intensity of ... (Vocalists, Rock)read moreCD
