Recorded in 1980 at Sam Phillips & Ardent Studios and produced by Alex Chilton & James Dickinson. The 2nd LP was recorded live at Dingwalls, London,1980. This is perhaps Alex Chilton's most controversial album. Some saw it as the definitive collapse of a major talent, saying "the LP sounds like a bunch of drunken louts running amok in a studio with no producer to restrain or guide them", other's hailed it's casual anarchy calling it "a beautiful mess: rock n roll as it was born to be: chaotic sloppy a wreck of incomplete hooks and vocalsŠa savage postcard from the edge of hell". There is no question that the record is a shambles, but if you take the time to wade through the chaos, you may find the sublime.180 gram gatefold sleeve housed in a PVC dustjacket.
1979 album from this avant garde singer/composer and pianist. Her pioneering style of Jazz rock / funk fusion, touched by her sexual and social political lyrics cemented her reputation as an individual.

Tracks; Love's Out To Lunch, Solar Systems, American Sport, A loss Of Consciousness, Rubber Hunger, The Succubus, Survival.
First album on Aura from this idiosyncratic jazzy singer, combining rock and classical textures also.

On 1966's 'Jack Orion', Bert Jansch extended the musical scope of his first two albums in brilliant new directions. The 9 min title track and his reworking of "Nottamun Town" had a huge influence on early Fairport Convention. The album is reissued here in a gatefold sleeve pressed on 180gram vinyl and housed in a PVC dust jacket.
Released at the height of the Summer of Love, this was Bert's fourth solo album. The album was an evolution, the stark brooding acoustic minimalism of his early recordings had gone and in its place was an orchestra. Named after his girlfriend at the time, the album gave Jansch (usually the lone wolf) his first taste of creating music as a member of a greater whole, and in some ways must have led to his decision to leave his solo career behind for his new group, Pentangle.Jansch's creative impulse was forcing him to leap forward into the great unknown and the result was Nicola.180 gram gatefold sleeve and PVC dustjacket
A favorite among Jansch fans, "Rosemary Lane" (originally released in 1971) has all of the trademark Jansch elements firmly in place - sparse innovative guitar work and inspired vocals on both original interpretations of traditional pieces and his own self-penned tracks. One of the most influential acoustic guitar players of all time, it has been said that Jansch did for the acoustic guitar what Jimi Hendrix did for the electric.180 gram vinyl and housed in a PVC dustsleeve.

180 gram vinyl pressing of the first album the group made when Ozzy left the band for the second time in 1979, he left a group whose internal disputes had reached sky high levels. However, the band was soon revitalized by the former Elf and Rainbow singer, Ronnie James Dio, who gave Iommi and Butler such good vibes and new input that BS released their best work since their early masterpieces. 1980's Heaven and Hell brought Black Sabbath a new battalion of younger fans and restored the energy they had started with in 1970. Tracks like the album opener, "Neon Knights," the almost gothic "Children of the Sea," and the title track set the new pace for the brand new giants of HR.
Beautiful 180 gram pressing in PVC audiophile dustsleeve of this fantastic 1971 release (3rd Studio effort).The band were fresh and had a seemingly endless supply of crushingly heavy riffs to bludgeon the listener into sweet willing oblivion. Tracks like "Sweet Leaf", "Into The Void & the massive"Children of the Grave" make this a monster of an album.This masterpiece reached the Top Ten on both sides of the Atlantic selling over a million copies.

The 1978 album that saw Ozzy return to the Sabbath fold after having left the group on the previous tour.

The enhanced and re-mastered version of Live At Last (1980,although recorded in 1973) Past Lives , featuring a new bonus LP, takes you by the hand through some of the hardest gigs of the true doom masters between 1970 and 1978, this time offering the listener a more accurate and complete retrospective of what the combo could do live, especially before wives got involved. Tri-fold cover with a 16 page book of photos,printed inner sleeves and housed in a PVC jacket.
180 gram re-issue of Black Sabbath's 5th from1973 and this was essential Sabbath for any self-respecting fan and one of the genre's defining moments. Although the presence of Rick Wakeman of Yes on keyboards and Will Malone's string arrangements marked a slight change(more progressive) in direction for the band, the album (their fifth straight Top Ten million-seller) is still vintage Sabbath by anyone's standards. Featuring the classic title track and the deliciously synth filled "Sabbra Cadabra". Original beautiful artwork printed inner sleeve and PVC dust sleeve.
This classic 1975 album includes the superb "Symptom Of The Universe", featuring both Geezer Butler's writing at his best and an excellent performance by Tony Iommi. The rest of the album takes us down a new path marked by the sound evolution that began with 1973's Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath. Although tracks like "Thrill of It All", "The Writ" and "Megalomania" are still recognizably "Sabs", comprehensively this is an unorthodox album that dares to take hard rock into uncharted waters.Housed in a PVC dustsleeve.
Superb LP reissue of the 1976 release that saw the Sabbs continuing to refine their sound and vision, while maintaining their reputation for mighty riffs and doom laden songs.

One of the greatest rock/ heavy metal albums ever made (fact). This classic Sabbath album, originally released in 1972, was the band's 4th album in just two years and although "Wheels of Confusion," and "Changes" find the band experimenting with their sound, songs like "Supernaut" prove that Sabbath can still deliver the goods.

Recorded live at London's legendary Roxy Club in April 1977, just beforet the recording of their debut album.The bands straightforward melodic style of punk earned them the reputation as the Beatles of punk rock, but, despite being one of the most talented bands to embody the 77 punk spirit, they would remain largely unknown except to a small but fanatic following. This early live recording catches the band at its wittiest and most energetic, playing rare live versions of the punk classics that would soon appear on their groundbreaking self-titled debut and their equally influential follow-up "Alternative Chartbusters".180 gram vinyl and PVC dust cover.

The band who refused to conform gave us this slab of brilliance in 1977 produced by Nick Mason,(their first choice was Syd Barrett but you know how it is!) It's a darker,more ominous affair than the first and a sound that not many people were ready for at the time,but have now come to love. Manic sax playing (Lol Coxhill) graces some tunes while others like "One Way Love" , Problem Child, "You Know" have now become classics.180 gram gatefold vinyl pressing in a PVC dust sleeve.

A punk rock landmark debut album from 1982 re-issued on 180 gram vinyl.The album is important on all sorts of levels, from what it did to the British hardcore scene to the long-lasting effect it had on heavy metal and what influence it still has on today's scene.
ELP's 1972 live rendition of Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition is both an exercise in deconstructionism and a pure manifestation of love for one of the five Russian Nationalist composers. This groundbreaking tribute placed ELP on the crest of the "classical rock" fusion of the early seventies and sailed rock fans into uncharted waters.180 gram virgin vinyl, PVC dustsleeve
180 gram gatefold sleeve version of 1971’s Tarkus , the second album by the undisputed first "supergroup" in music history. Articulated in a powerful 20 minute suite on side one and a less volcanic but still focused and musically intense side two, the album presents the trio performing its best progressive rock, still rough and not too polished. Tunes like the title track - which undoubtedly competes with Yes’s "Close To The Edge"to make make this milestone of prog rock a must have for everyone who claims fluency in 20th century’s pop music.
After threatening audiences with their hard progressive blend of musical talent, advanced ideas, complicated song structures and deconstructionist theories applied to classical music, it was time for ELP to relax a little with 1972’s Trilogy, a more commercially oriented and easy-to-listen-to work which soon became a much deserved mass success. With tracks like the pop-suite "Endless Enigma", the playful 'Sheriff' and Greg Lake’s beautiful ballad "From The Beginning" we witness the changes in the direction of this trio, losing a little of its rough energy and early aggression (seriously!) for more carefully polished yet intriguing inventions. Yet for utter self-indulgence there's still their version of Aaron Copeland's "Hoedown"- possibly their second best known tune after 'Fanfare. . .'- and the album closer 'Abaddon's Bolero' which still polarises fans to this day. A classic! 180 gram virgin vinyl, PVC dustsleeve
By the time The Fall arrived on Rough Trade's doorstep in 1980, Mark E. Smith & co were already well known for their unique brand of disjointedly angular pop punk, having left behind a steady trickle of inimitably brilliant singles and LPs since the band's inception in 1977. During their roughly 3 years with the label, the band proved itself to be at the height of its creativity, releasing a flurry of singles that included some of their best work to date. Includes 'Totally Wired', 'Ludd Gang', 'Putta Block', 'City Hobgoblins', 'How I Wrote Elastic Man', 'Kicker Conspiracy' and more. 180 gram vinyl LP with printed inner sleeve and PVC dustjacket
Funk's best-kept secret, the Fatback Band's tight horns and rhythm section kept the fatback party jumpin and grooving all through the seventies.When it came to a getting a good party going, founder Bill Curtis took his job seriously always trying to bring this live party feeling to wax.This was demonstarted in their legendary first releases for New York City's Perception Records, now collected on this double LP.

Three albums' worth of non-stop, hardworkin' Fatback grooves in one package!180 gram vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve and PVC dustjacket
Formed in 1971, Fruupp began recording in 1973 for Dawn records, a subsidiary label of Pye. An eclectic progressive rock combo responsible for a sort of early Genesis-like sound with huge folk and classical influences, due to the musical background of its members, like oboe/keyboard player Stephen Houston.

To call this influential or pioneering wouldn't even begin to describe this album.

Rare second LP by one of the most legendary underground acoustic folk bands to come out of the UK in this era. Recorded for Transatlantic in 1971, Jan Dukes De Grey's second album was (despite the addition of drummer Denis Conlan) much more free-form than the first. While still essentially a folk album, the band's progressive leanings are far more pronounced, dissolving song structure and taking the audience on a wild, semi-improvised journey over 3 lengthy tracks. 180 gram vinyl housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve and PVC dustcover.
1971 debut solo album from the late Who bassist John Entwistle - a hard rock sound (not unlike early Atomic Rooster or Andromeda) is evident on some tracks, whilst others are mellower. Lyrically the vibe is notably darker in tone; with Entwistle contributing less songs to his full time job, this appears to be a real emotional outlet for the late Bassist. Includes a beautiful version of "Heaven And Hell".
In the words of British guitar-god John Renbourn, founding member of the influential folk-rock group Pentangle, the tracks on this record  have been taken from previous albums, made in all kinds of places, some of them recording studios. Although Pentangle was at the height of its popularity in 1971, Renbourn always maintained an identity as a solo artist as is evident in this superior showcase of primarily traditional folk tunes & instrumentals. Featuring appearances by fellow Pentangle members Bert Jansch and Jacquie McShee. Track listing - Side A 1. Judy 2. Song 3. I Know My Babe 4. Debbie Anne 5. Nobody’s Fault But Mine 6. Sweet Potato 7. side B 1. Ladye Nothynge’s Toye Puffe 2. The Trees They Do Grow High 3. Alman 4. Morgana 5. One For William 6. Orlando 7. My Johnny Was A Shoemaker.180 gram and housed in a PVC jacket
Released in November 1970, it contains a variety of instrumental 'early music' pieces, at that time the object of eclectic Renbourn's research. Despite its characterization as a 'medieval album', the music contained is of a much wider range, spanning from the 13th - 14th century dance tunes "Trotto" and "Saltarello" to the instrumental versions of the relatively recent English folk songs "My Johnny Was A Shoemaker" and "Scarborough Fair". The result of this amazing research can be carefully tracked by Renbourn's liner notes which neatly report authors, dates, and cultural origins of the material, where known.180 gram pressing and housed in a PVC slipcase.

They were Down To Kill and ready to take Old London by storm;Like the night they played the Speakeasy on March 15, 1977. All fire and fury and 100% speed fuelled energy.Housed in a PVC dustsleeve.
The last and perhaps finest episode in the Brian Auger/Julie Driscoll musical relationship, this 1969 double LP features 16 of the most eclectic and versatile tunes by the London-born keyboard wizard, half of them sung by the impressive voice of the future Mrs. Tippett. Always shifting between his distinctive Stax oriented r’n’b and a personal take on pop-prog, Auger here also revisits a few hits of the era, including The Doors’ "Light My Fire", Nina Simone’s"Take Me To The Water" and an amazing interpretation of Laura Nyro’s "Save The Country". This reissue also features the reproduction of the original gatefold layout.180 gram virgin vinyl, PVC dustsleeve
Originally released in 1969 and recorded at the tail-end of a ban that kept the Kinks from touring in the US for 4 years,during these years American youth had collectively begun to make a clean break with everything the post-war generation had worked so hard for. Davies was acutely aware of this cultural upheaval, but rather than writing celebratory songs of sex drugs and rock 'n' roll, Davies chose to focus on the disappointment and self-doubt of an older generation, wasted lives and getting old. Not exactly something to make the kids want to get up and dance (and perhaps this explaining the album's dismal sales). Like Lola, Arthur was a brilliant concept album.180 gram vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve and PVC sleeve.
From 1964 came this debut album from the Muswell Hill boys. Including the hit singles "You Really Got Me" and "Stop Your Sobbin" and more tracks of energetic Mod influenced power pop. Birth of a Legend. Re-issue on 180 gram vinyl with a thick card sleeve in PVC wallet.
By 1968 the Kinks had released enough pop landmarks to keep any other band resting on their laurels for a lifetime, but the ever-restless Ray Davies had more genius swirling around to record another album. As most bands were celebrating peace and love, Davies was swimming against the current with quirky little songs about preserving an imagined Village Green. It has been often mused that because the Kinks were banned from the US while most of the sixties revolution was taking place, their music became increasingly introspective taking a microscope to British life as this album shows. Gatefold sleeve 180 gram stereo version. PVC slipcase.
Mono version One of the greatest, and most misunderstood LPs ever made! Ray Davies called it "The most successful failure of all time". "It was a project that was either ahead of it’s time, or just totally out of time," Dave Davies recalls. Despite it perhaps being the band’s best work, its songs about draught beer, cricket and strawberry jam, made it recklessly unfashionable in the sex,drugs,and rock’n’roll mind frame of the swinging sixties.This is THE edition of the Kinks’ magnum opus! With this 3 LP release you get the complete mono version of the album plus an entire album of extra rare bonus tracks, many of which are released here for the first time on vinyl! Also includes extensive liner notes and an exhaustive annotated track listing!

A curious and obscure combo formed in Leicester, Midlands in 1966, Pesky Gee! signed to Pye in 1968 and soon began to make a name for themselves in the underground prog-rock arena, releasing Exclamation Mark in 1969 as their first and last full-length LP. The band soon shifted its bluesy hard rock underpinnings towards a more contemporary - 1970 marks Black Sabbath’s debut - interest in Satanism and occultism, which led Pesky Gee! to its ultimate transformation into Black Widow.180 gram virgin vinyl with PVC dustsleeve

Punk rock had not yet been packaged and commercialised to the kiddies. To be a punk still meant living on the edges of society and all the papers were filled with sensationalized stories of violence and drugs and so no club would book any punk act.

She is responsible for bringing traditional English music back into the mainstream and her recordings and archival work (Collins always cited her sources) has saved many beautiful songs, often passed down only through oral tradition, from vanishing into obscurity. What Alan Lomax did for the American South (Collins actually accompanied Lomax on a year-long American archiving tour), Collins did for the English countryside, only Collins brought the music into the 'now' of the 1960s and 70s, using her own unique voice and modern electric instrumentation. 1971's No Roses is both a seminal and star-studded album in this vein of traditional electrified English folk music. Featuring (then-husband) Ashley Hutchings, Richard Thompson and Simon Nicol of Fairport Convention fame.180 gram vinyl pressing.
16 tracks that sound like 1978, as the Professor demanded, with the additional contribution of the sax genius Dean Fraser and superb arrangements reminiscent of Black Uhuru and some of the most earth shaking carpeting Dunbar and Shakespeare are capable of.

180 gram vinyl pressing and pvc sleeve of the album that gave Status Quo the change of direction that they needed, at the time. This is where they began to cultivate the denim-clad 12-bar blues rockers image that anyone, who was not familiar withn their pre-1970 output, would instantly associate them with.
Launched as a psycho-pop easy listening group for charts purposes, Quo struggled to find their own path and personality starting with this second album. Urged by PYE - through whom Spare Parts was released in 1969 - to score more hit singles, the Quo put up this much awaited follow up to their debut giving us tunes as enjoyable as their predecessors and pleasing their label with charts results. From this point on, however, - and audible already on this album - begins a new era for Mr. Rossi's combo: a few months after the release of this the Quo began their metamorphosis towards the progressive blues and boogie rock that made them world famous in the 70s.180 gram pressing with PVC dustsleeve.

Released shortly after their 1982 epic "Black Metal" (considered by many to be one of the greatest metal albums of all time), Venom's third album, originally released in 1983, found these thrash pioneers at the height of their popularity and creative ability.
