Rocks from 1976 is the excellent follow up featuring "Back In the Saddle" whilst "Draw the Line" includes the bands take on "Milk Cow Blues" and "Get It up". Top quality '70's rock.…
1979 double album from one of jazz-rock's earliest and best guitarists. Having learnt his trade in fusion outfit Return To Forever with Chick Corea in the early 70s, Al made several solo albums - this one being regarded in many circles as the best.

The American Syd Barrett..... Skip Spence was the power house behind a successful band (Moby Grape) before he over did it with LSD and lost the plot. This album was recorded during that period and is a masterpiece of on the edge psychedelic weirdness in places very similar to Syd - eg. "Lawrence From Euphoria" and the spaced out "War In Peace". Weird stuff. Vinyl reissue of this wasted classic on 180 gram vinyl.

You never tire of this quality album.
Obscure 45 from this legendary UK 60s pop-psych band. Large centre hole and original labels have been faithfully reproduced. As with the originals, these will also become future collector's items and due to the small run will probably sell out almost instantly. Be quick, do not miss (500 only)
Excellent early seventies blistering hard rock from Japan. This one really kicks butt! Great lead guitar throughout and most of the songs are in English. Slightly blues based, but with a twist of psych mayhem, this one comes highly recommended. Good price too!

Remastered version of the1978 Dylan album, the first of his albums to use the 'big' arrangements causing many of his fans to dismiss this as a forgettable album. This is a shame as the songs featured as every bit as good as the material on 'Blood On The Tracks' or 'Desire'.

Great debut album from 1966 by this Chicago band that has a strong Byrds influence. The album includes the inevitable cover versions such as "Hey Joe" and "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" but "Ben Frankin's Almanac" is a storming fuzzed up punk original that is pretty much an essential listen. Overall a really good US garage pop album with psych flashes…

1978 debut solo album from Pink Floyd guitarist released around the same time as Floyd's "Animals" album.

Reissued in original gatefold sleeve with classic Hipgnosis cover.
Official reissue of this great US Middle Eastern psych LP on which Felix Pappalardi (later of Mountain) and members of The Deep/Freak Scene jam with a band of Arabian musicians.

Forming a band that combined blues, rock, soul, psychedelia, and jazz into something new this ambitious concept is displayed on this release with stunning drumming from Buddy Miles. Bloomfield knew for sure that he wanted a horn section in the band, which only add's to the power of the album. A classic 60's psychedelic sleeve as well.
Three albums from the '60's line-up of Fleetwood Mac. "Fleetwood Mac" and "Mr. Wonderful" (both 1968) are the first two albums representing the cutting edge of the late '60's UK blues boom.

"Pious Bird" is a compilation that includes the bands huge hit "Albatross" as well as "Black Magic Woman" (later covered by Santana) and ten other cuts.
First seen and heard by most folk in this country on the CBS sampler album "Fill Your Head With Rock". Flock made this album in 1969 and what a stormer!

US sleeve version of the1973 release from the UK prog rockers.This their fourth album has a harder, more rocking edge, making a striking contrast with their more symphonic third album.The introduction of John Weathers on drums seemed to make the band heavier.

1973 album from US jazz pianist. The first after leaving Warner Brothers finds Herbie fully embracing electric sounds (as a result of working with Miles Davis) on these three extended pieces. This album is often seen as the bridge from the cosmic jazz of the late 60s to the jazz rock/funk of the 70s. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
This 1973 album remains one of the seminal influences on punk rock. The Stooges played loud raucous jagged rock, whilst in Iggy they found the perfect front man. Alternately deranged and even more hyper. Contains the classics "Search And Destroy", "Raw Power" and "Penetration". This remix disposes of the lo-fi sound that ruined the original album resulting in a powerful blast of early '70's glam psych punk mayhem. Digi pak. Highly recommended.

Ex-Velvet Underground viola/keyboard player's 1970 solo debut was a shock after his avant garde tendencies in the Velvets. The album turned out to be a startlingly user-friendly piece of mature, intelligent pop and showed what an accessible singer/songwriter he was working in the mold of the Band rather than the Velvets.
1971 collaboration between Velvet Underground viola player & minimalist composer. Not really rock music and not really neo classical, this album is a strange hybrid, mixing rhythmic patterns with experimental jazz and far-out rock. It could only have been recorded in the early 70s. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
Vinyl issue from John Kay of Steppenwolf's first band which also featured the guitarist Mars Bonfire. Recorded in 1966-67 this is a fantastic slab West Coast influenced garage blues rock with some psych moments. The band made a home on the West Coast of the US and this album is part of the West Coast rock jigsaw. Great!
Exact repro in a gatefold sleeve of this live companion to the 'Johnny Winter And' album. Recorded in 1971 it really lets rip with storming hard rock versions of 'Jumpin' Jack Flash','Good morning Little School girl',and an excellent rock 'n' roll medley. Rick Derringer and Johnny Winter battle it out with mean guitar duals throughout. Killer.
1975 debut from UK funky r&b outfit Kokomo with Mel Collins (King Crimson) and Neil Hubbard & Alan Spenner (Joe Cocker's Grease Band). Often compared to the Average White Band (Kokomo were infinitely better), this stunning debut includes an extended version of Bobby Womack's "I Can Understand It" plus eight other songs.

1988 release which was a sophisticated leap into modern musical textures,and re-established Leonard Cohen's mastery.The album has a backdrop of keyboards and propulsive rhythms and Cohen surveys the global landscape with a precise, unflinching eye. Magic stuff
1973 release from laughing Len capturing stellar live performances from 1970 through 1972. Tunes include "Story Of Isaac", "Tonight Will Be Fine" and the wonderful "Bird On The Wire". A great album and a crucial part of the Cohen story.
Cohen's second release originally released in 1969 which is an emotionally claustrophobic set; arguably even darker and bleaker than his debut. Tracks include "Bird On A Wire", "Lady Midnight" "You Know Who I Am" and more. Another masterpiece.
The amazing 1967 debut from poet Leonard Cohen that brought his introspective dark brooding sonwriting to the world, with a voice that bears little or no relation to the one he sings in now!! Includes "Suzanne", "Sisters Of Mercy" (where the band nabbed their name from, as well as lifting the title of their 1993 album "Some Girls Wander By Mistake" from the track "Teachers") "Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye" "So Long Marianne" and many more. A landmark timeless album that should be in everyone's collection.
Re-issue of the 1971 debut album by these Chilean folk-rockers. Combining electric and acoustic Chilean instruments this group created a hybrid form of progressive folk/rock that was enormously successful in Argentina in the 1970s. Easily the most reknowned Chilean band in the world (and one of the most revered South American bands) Los Jaivas presented the world with an adventurous and progressive strain of folk music, and it started right here with their debut.
Excellent three CD package featuring re-mastered versions of these classic Mahavishnu Orchestra albums all featuring virtuoso English guitarist John McLaughlin.

The 1976 album Inner Worlds was the bands final '70's release mixing funkier sounds with jazz rock and Indian Ragas. All albums are remastered with in depth sleeve notes.
1976 album from the Canadian Hendrix influenced combo. Led by the incendiary guitar of Mr Marino, here they take on "All Along The Watchtower" and "Norwegian Wood" as well as half a dozen storming originals. Throughout the guitar work is killer....
Released in 1977, this was one of the first breakthrough albums for the Canadian power trio. Frank Marino's Hendrix like guitar work was the main focus, but on these 8 tracks of high energy spacey rock there was plenty of other group activity contributing to the mix. Heavy yet melodic, and a perfect antidote to the "poodle rock" beginning to permeate a lot of the US stadiums.
Debut album by this highly regarded Argentinian rock trio from 1970. Mixing Latin rhythms with inspiration from western acts such as Cream, this has a laid back jazzy / blues / garage feel with some great lead guitar in places. Contains 7 bonus tracks from their 45s. Housed in a mini card gatefold sleeve
1972 release by the Canterbury band related to Soft Machine and Hatfield and the North.

The very first 1965 Columbia single from this legendary band, which featured a very young (and hideously talented) Jimmy Page on guitar and was produced by Shel Talmy.

This is a reproduction of the original French Jukebox pressings ie: large centre hole.The original label has been faithfully reproduced. This 60s UK psyche masterpiece is very desirable, collectable and mega-limited to 500 copies only.

1973 solo album from keyboard session man Nicky Hopkins. Having worked with Jimmy Page, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jeff Beck, Faces, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, this was his finest moment as a solo artist. Contributors include George Harrison, Ray Cooper, Mick Taylor and many more. If you are familiar with Nicky's contributions to the above artists you'll like this album.
Jazz altoist Coleman's first album for Columbia was a real departure from his Blue Note work during the 60s. Eerie sounds and an uneasy psychedelic vibe pervades every track. Guest vocalist Asha Puthli adds to the mystical feel and with a stellar band including Charlie haden on bass and Billy Higgins on drums, this album is a landmark in psychedlic jazz. Now pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
Ornette Coleman's first recorded orchestral symphonic work (he had written others previously and had them performed but never put on tape) from 1972. Played by the London Symphony Orchestra, this recording is still regarded as a breakthrough album and sounds ahead of its time to this day. 180 gram vinyl.
Latest (2002) Primal Scream album and it's yet another departure for Bobby & the boys. Seems like he's been listening to Neu, Faust, Can and the like. Double LP with printed insert....Utterly essential!
Disgustingly rare debut 1966 7" by these Mancunian masters of Mod/ Beat/ White Soul that collectors, DJs and clubbers have been known to pay what is technically termed 'silly money' for. Large centre hole and original labels have been faithfully reproduced. As with the originals, these will also become future collector's items and due to the small run will probably sell out almost instantly. Be quick, do not miss(500 only)
Second rare 1966 7" by these Mancunian masters of Mod/ Beat/blue eyed soul. Another club/dancefloor monster that should be in everyone's collection. Large centre hole and original labels have been faithfully reproduced. As with the originals, these will also become future collector's items and due to the small run will probably sell out almost instantly. Be quick, do not miss(500 only)
This official 1998 edition of the original 1961 album was certainly worth the wait, remastered off the best-quality original 78s available and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Includes "Crossroads Blues", "Come On In My Kitchen" and fourteen other slices of original Mississippi blues.
Vol 2 of this excellent collection by the Blues master. Featuring cuts recorded in a San Antonio hotel room in November 1936 and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Includes "Sweet Home Chicago", "Love In Vain", "They're Red Hot" and thirteen other slices of original delta blues.
After a very long gap Rodriguez returned to South Africa in 1988 to tour. Having become a household name in the late '60's and early '70's (owing to his cross cultural protest lyrics) Rodriguez remained unknown in the USA but a mega star in South Africa and a symbol of the 60's. This great live album was issued on a major label and captures the man plus band playing all of his best songs in front of a huge and wildly appreciative audience. The sound of the original albums is recreated on stage, but with modern sound quality. Includes "Sugarman" "I Wonder" "Only Good For Conversation" and all the best tracks!
Rare as hen's teeth 1966 slab of freakbeat to get you dancing the night away. Produced by Chris Stanford (Coronation Street!) who was also working with the Zombies at the same time. This is a reproduction of the original French Jukebox pressings ie: large centre hole.The original label has been faithfully reproduced. This 60s UK psyche masterpiece is very desirable, collectable and mega-limited to 500 copies only. Of course you could always try and find an original, if you fancy forking out the whopping £400+ asking price. Nice.
Gorgeous US '60s psychedelic pop with superb vocal harmonies, orchestration, sitars, mellotrons etc. "My World Fell Down" was on the first "Nuggets" comp. The songs are fantastic as is the production. A total classic of dreamy psychy, acid pop for long Summer trips. Housed in the original sleeve and taken from the analogue masters.
Three albums by the Latin Rock band from San Francisco. "Caravanserai" (1972) is a brilliant cosmic album loaded with Carlos Santana's spacey, flowing guitar lines and a lush almost tropical production, whilst "Welcome" (1974) and "Amigos" (1976) are less frenetic but more joyously Latin in texture and content. Highly recommended.
A bold claim and not too far from the truth since this album includes "Jin-Go-Lo-Ba" "Evil Ways" "Soul Sacrifice" "Black Magic Woman" and other tracks from the best early years of the band. 16 tracks and a fine primer for the best South American rock band.
The first three (and some say the best) albums, recorded between 1969 and 1971 and now remastered and with loads of additional live tracks. These albums represent the epitome of the searing Latin acid rock driven by percussion and Carlos Santana's guitar work. "Samba Pa Ti," "Jingo," "Soul Sacrifice," "Black Magic Woman" and plenty more sizzling stuff here folks.
Debut 1976 release that brought together two great talents; guitarist John McLaughlin and violinist Shankar. Amazing fusion of eastern spirituality, mysticism, jazz and Indian ragas. Simply one of the best acoustic eastern sitar jazz albums ever made. Exciting rhythm interchanges between the players, highlighted especially on the 29 minute "All Is Bliss". The guitar playing is amazing some of McLaughlin's best.
The cats are back on a beautiful reissue of these two classics and on 7" no less!! This is a reproduction of the original French Jukebox pressings ie: large centre hole.The original label has been faithfully reproduced. This 60s UK psyche masterpiece is very desirable, collectable and mega-limited to 500 copies only.
This 1967 debut album was a startling statement in its time and has held up remarkably well. Featuring a stellar line-up including Ry Cooder and Jessie Edwin Davis on guitars, the music is described by Taj himself as 'Blues-rock-gospel-country-funk. Screamin & Singin!'. Exact repress with great period sleeve.
1968 album and the final studio recordings of bop pianist Thelonious Monk featuring a big band orchestrated by Oliver Nelson. Includes "Monk's Point", "Rootie Tootie" and a storming arrangement of "Straight, No Chaser". Pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
Absolutely essential bop album from 1966 from pianist Thelonious Monk. Produced by Teo Macero (Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, etc) and featuring classic Monk tunes such as "Locomotive", "Japanese Folk Song" and the title tune. Limited pressing on 180 gram vinyl.
This 1969 release was a darker, more subdued, and altogether stranger affair than the relatively accessible material he had recorded for Verve just two or three years previously.Quite possibly this is his best work for Columbia....a sparse study in despair featuring some barely-written songs with a delicate, faintly jazzy feel with a continous 'suite of songs' linked by themes and strange effects. A ravaged and personal document.
Vinyl copy of this 1976 release and one does really wonder what would have become of this talent had he not succumbed to a senseless drug overdose at the age of 25. This album contains the classic nine-minute rocker "Post Toastee" which merges a long jam section with lyrics concerning the dangers of drug addiction, the beautiful string drenched "Hello Again" and the funky hard rock of "Bustin' Out For Rosie" along with 5 other great rock tunes make this a classic Bolin album.
We've talked about them, we've raved about them and now we stock them! The best UK '70's folk rock band bar none. On this their second album from 1971, majestic vocals sweep over misted moors as spiralling electric guitar solos clash like Celtic knot weave in the dawn. Celia Humphris fragile vocals conjure up the England of yore and the band mix westcoast acid rock with a dark and mossy folk yearning. Simply wonderous.
Landmark album by this US '60s outfit. Featuring Joe Byrd's weird electronics together with Dorothy Moskowitz's velvet vocals the album is melodic psychedelic jouney mixing orchestrated "Sgt. Pepper" like period electronic effects, acid guitar freakouts etc. Features "The Garden Of Earthly Delights", "Coming Down" and other masterpieces. Glorious stuff!
1977 debut for UK punk band the Vibrators and a landmark album that defined the times as well as any other. Fifteen tracks of fast 'n' loud rock & roll including "Into The Future", "London Girls" and "Stiff Little Fingers"
Three album CD set by excellent pioneering jazz rock fusion combo. Featuring the musical genius of Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, Jaco Pastorius, Alex Acuna, Alphonso Johnson, Narada Michael Walden. "Black Market" (1976) is a hard driving hard blowing, rhythmically furious collection of songs, whilst "Mysterious Traveller" (1974) is a cooler and subtler affair and "Heavy Weather" (1977) adds dramatic new tonal textures and is probably their best album.
1973 release from ex-Mountain duo Corky Laing and Leslie West together with ex-Cream bassist Jack Bruce.This is the album that had the beautiful Peter Brown co-written "November Song" and the great rockin' "Scotch Crotch" which would have fitted onto any Cream album.The albums artwork is by the great underground comic artist Joe Petagno.
Wonderful early '70s release from one of the masters of the mid '60s acoustic guitar explosion. Featuring a style similar to Mick Softly/Davey Graham it mixes electric and acoustic folk and rock, using a sitar at all the right moments. It's an album that has some great songs on it perfectly balancing dreamy cosmic improvisation with rustic melody and rural Americana. A classic early '70s UK folk rock album. BARGAIN PRICE
Great collection of hits, album tracks and more by the furry eco-warriors. The Wombles were infact supported by some fine '70's musicians and this collection is ample proof of the brilliance of that bands recordings. Mike Batt's songs cover a broad musical canvas,the styles range from psyche styled music hall-inspired British pop to overloaded orchestral prog-rock and on through country and blues. Even the odd barbershop quartet pops into the picture! Wild!
Finally available on CD very rare pre-Flower Travelling Band '60s West Coast styled psych from Japan. Killer versions of Jefferson Airplane, Cream, Hendrix and Big Brother songs with a couple of originals. The guitar work is stunning and the vocals are in English. Ace album!Includes 12 page booklet.
LP reissue of this legendary debut album by the band that became Dantalion's Chariot. This well respected UK R'n' B outfit included Andy Summers and Johnny Almond amongst others, and here they tear through a selection of classics including "Uncle Willie", "The Cat" and "Back Door Blues"
