The 1989 album that relaunced the career of one of America's biggest bands. In the early '70's Aerosmith were up with Led Zep and The Stones as stadium Gods before they fell from grace. Pump was a rebirth, filled with the kind of hard livin' Rock n' Roll that had made the band so famous.
Official release that stands amongst the most ambitious and best Greek progressive albums, this 1973 release is a tremendous concoction of dynamic and effortlessly shifting complex rhythm changes, multi-instrumental layers and musical textures. With individual segments ranging from Garcia-like guitar, pomp chuch organ, jazz, baroque, piano recital, thundering drums, soaring melodic vocals... And probably a kitchen sink, it is somewhat comparable with the finest ELP, Gentle Giant and Zappa, but at the same time totally unique! A mega prog killer!!
Long overdue reissue on CD for this genre-defining Southern Rock band's debut album. Originally released in 1969, this was the album that gave us 'Whipping Post' 'Dreams' and a storming version of Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More". Debuts don't come much better than this.
The first two great albums (1972/73) by this fine Dutch progressive rock band. Lush progressive, with some psych elements the albums also feature some excellent guitarwork, keyboards, violin and appropriate punchy brass arrangements. Includes a great version of an It's A Beautiful Day tune too.
Distinctly original and very , very English '60's psychedelia from Arthur Brown. This CD contains the whole original album and mono versions of "Prelude-Nightmare", "Fanfare-Fire Poem", "Fire", "Come And Buy" and, "Time/Confusion" (all different mixes). Classic orchestral arrangements from Vincent Crane wash over the mad psychedelic sounds created by Arthur Brown ,Kit Lambert & Pete Townsend. Every home should have one.
BJH's eighth album and, at the time of its release in 1976, the band had already been together for ten years! Very much a product of its time, but there are still aspects of the work that make it worthy of the remaster treatment and tracks like 'May Day', 'Ra' and 'Suicide' are all very progressive in outlook. If you have ever enjoyed the music of The Moody Blues or, more recently, bands like Pendragon you will find this release right up your street.Excellent 16 page booklet detailing the recording of the album and 5 bonus tracks.
From 1967, the year of flower power, comes the first Bee Gees album which is a little known psike pop classic. 14 slices of pure quality pop, with a whimsical sugar psike edge. The stand out track is definitely "Red Chair Fadeaway", a mellotron soaked piece of surreal nonsense loaded with powerful harmonies and exemplarary musicianship. Also includes "Cucumber Castle" and the hits "New York Mining Disaster" and "To Love Somebody." Well worth an investigation by any UK pop sike fan.
An overlooked work in the Brothers Gibb catalogue, Cucumber Castle is an excellent album that plays to the Bee Gees' strengths of melody, arrangement, and craftsmanship. Though at times one may miss the distinctive trembling vocals of Robin Gibb (the brothers had split up at this point), Barry and Maurice carry on with 12 cuts that continue in the tradition of their distinctive pop sound. Orchestral arrangements and Mellotrons abound, and the sound tends toward full productions, especially in "Then You Left Me" and "I Lay Down and Die." (the latter of which appears to have been written after listening to many Beach Boys records) One can also hear country influences ("Sweetheart"), gospel ("Bury Me Down by the River"), and light jazz ("My Thing"). What sets this album above others is that there is not a bad cut , and Barry's vocals are particularly strong and heartfelt. Although most of the cuts deal with the usual subject of love and particularly love lost, superb eye for detail in the arrangements of the songs give them added life. Adding a few songs with classic singalong melodies ("Sweetheart" and "Don't Forget to Remember") and one beautifully frivolous popsike single ("I.O.I.O") certainly doesn't hurt the cause. All in all, this is a fine album that cements the Brothers Gibb's reputation as superior pop songwriters and craftsmen. Now let's hope someone finds the film. . .
1968 release that gave the band 2 massive hits in the shape of "I've Gotta Get a Message to You" the often covered "I Started a Joke," and the bass guitar experiments on the bouncy "Kitty Can" make the disc worthy of purchase alone. Sounding like the Beatles at some points this is a great album and worthy to any UK pop sike fan. Hats off to the three teen brothers who took the current technology of the time and survived. Songtitle of the week: "I Have Decided To Join The Air Force".
Arguably the band's equivalent to 'Sgt Pepper' SF Sorrow' 'Odessey And Oracle' 'Forever Changes' 'Days Of Future Passed' 'Pet Sounds' etc, this sprawling double album (originally a concept piece about a marooned man's reminiscences before death) stands as the Gibb brothers' quintessential work, rivalled only possibly by 'Trafalgar' and 'Cucumber Castle'. Grandiose melodies, lush, sweeping strings, those trembling falsetto vocals, mellotrons, horns. . .everything one could want from an album that bestrode the bridge betwixt popsike and the burgeoning new sounds of prog. The title track, 'Black Diamond' 'Lamplight' 'Edison' and 'Whisper Whisper' are masterpieces, the hit single 'First Of May' (the selection of which, over Christmas 1969, caused Robin to leave the band for well over a year) whilst the instrumentals such as 'Seven Seas Symphony' and 'British Opera' despite being maybe too close together in the running order, show an ambitious band unwilling to be bound by constraints, and hint at the huge prevailing influence of the Moody Blues. The Gibbs' own influence, particularly with regard to this album, was subsequently felt by fellow Mancunians Barclay James Harvest, whose bassist Les Holroyd spent the next 30 years replicating their schtick wholesale!! The most negative song they ever penned, 'I Laugh In Your Face' appears here, and is a fair indication of the emotions that almost tore the band apart- but doesn't detract in the slightest from the sheer shimmering euphoria that listening to this album can give you. Not so much essential as compulsory.
In the vein of the early Pretty Things this storming beat/R'n'B single is ridiculously rare as a Polydor single from 1965 and also as an even rarer Oak Label acetate from a year earlier. A soon to be equally as rare piece of history that should please even the most hardened of collectors. 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.
Double re-mastered CD set of this classic supergroup album (with that infamous front cover) that featured Winwood, Clapton, Grech and Baker at the peak of their respective careers.This set includes 9 bonus tracks that were not on the original album. For once, a reissue that includes bonus tracks you might actually want to hear!!
Beautiful re-issue of the second album from 1969 by the UK psychsters featuring future Family guitarist Jim Cregan. Slightly heavier in vein than the first, with a more West Coast/progressive feel this album is still a masterpiece of UK psych rock, with plenty of the quirky weirdness you'd expect. Features the original artwork.
Essential two CD retrospective of this much underrated New York '60's psychedelic band who's name had little bearing on their rock/psych/jazz/pop music. Features 36 digitally remastered tracks including material from the bands three groundbreaking Verve albums and two Capitol albums as well as rare singles previously unreleased material and alternate versions. A 24 page booklet completes the package.
22 tracks, 20 of which are previously unreleased material--offer extensive contemporary live previews of Disraeli Gears and even more compelling early workouts of material that would appear on Wheels of Fire. Also contained on this collection are four Clapton interview excerpts. All throughout this disc Cream's musical accomplishments can't be denied. Excellent and extensive sleevenotes make compelling reading. Cream, indeed.
Like Wheels of Fire before it, Goodbye showcases both sides of Cream: that of a late-'60s pop band and that of an unchained blues-rock powerhouse. The live tracks on side one are highly improvised affairs, with even "I'm So Glad" receiving an extended guitar solo from Clapton. How he is able to play such laid-back and tasty blues over the relentlessly aggressive Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker is a mystery. In fact, the real superstar of these recordings is Bruce, whose upfront, distorted bass playing kicks Baker along as much as it challenges Clapton. At times it sounds more like a battle than anything else, battles that Bruce, with his tenacity and pure drive, almost always wins. This Limited edition reissue featuring all original artwork and includes original studio versions of "Badge" and "Doing That Scrapyard Thing" as well as the live tracks. Cream's last and some say best album.
Limited and we mean limited box set that contains 3 discs spanning both sides of the Cream catalogue from the wildly experimental studio outfit and the stripped-down live trio combining newly re-mastered studio classics along with eight historic live performances.Disc one contains 21 studio tracks ,disc 2 8 live cuts and disc three the BBC sessions.
Limited edition remaster 2 CD set (this will revert to a single disc after these last few have sold out)This career-spanning collection spotlights both sides of the Cream catalogue--the wildly experimental studio outfit and the stripped-down live trio--combining newly re-mastered studio classics along with eight historic live performances.Beginning as imaginative blues revivalists, Cream quickly evolved into a riskier unit, mining an audacious assortment of jazz, folk, pop, blues and psychedelic elements. Cream made adventurous, original music that reflected the restless energy of its era, yet continues to resonate nearly four decades later. This album comprises 22 studio tracks, plus "Steppin Out" (live).Disc two contains 8 expansive live cuts recorded March taken from various albums.NOW DELETED BY UNIVERSAL - THESE ARE THE LAST 3 COPIES OF THIS DOUBLE CD
Brilliant album which featured amazing psychedelic packaging and is re-created in the booklet.This was the band's third album and were becoming (in keeping with the period) more experimental, introducing tympani, glocks and cellos etc.Includes the beautiful "White Room", "Politician","Passing the Time" and more.On the live portion of the disc it shows the bands playing ability on tracks like "Crossroads" and "Spoonful".
Remastered edition of the classic 1970 album from Eric Clapton and his band (following the Blind Faith experiment) in which Eric tried to move away from the 'superstar' tag and all that went with it and make a good old-fashioned group rock album. Includes many classic tracks such as "Layla", Hendrix's "Little Wing" and the beautiful "Thorn Tree In The Garden" plus many others.
There's LSD in the tea on this album featuring the singles "San Franciscan Nights" and "Good Times". A 1967 album and the first one recorded by Burdon on America's West Coast and the over-riding themes of love, peace and LSD consumption shine through here. Also includes an interesting cover of the Stones' "Paint It Black" (performed live in the Monterey Pop film).
Classic 1974 album expanded to a double CD from old Slowhand. Includes his cover of 'I shot The Sheriff',(2 versions included here) alongside two emotional originals, the prayerful "Give Me Strength" and the pleading "Let It Grow." Clapton maintains his grounding in the blues with versions of Robert Johnson's "Steady Rollin' Man" and Elmore James's "I Can't Hold Out"; revisits a rock & roll classic in Johnny Otis's "Willie and the Hand Jive"; and turns the standard "Motherless Children" into a showcase of snarling guitars.
Remaster of the 1977 album that defined the new cool of Eric Clapton, a sultry, laid-back mix of rock and blues, with a heavy dose of country and southwestern regional sounds to leaven the blend. The opening number was by J.J. Cale, whose "After Midnight" had been one of the real joys of the guitarist's first self titled solo excursion. "Cocaine," with its slow grinding beat, menacing melodic vamp and one-step from perdition lyrics, was the toughest, most rocking number on the album, and a major radio hit from the outset.A couple of vocal duets with countryish harmonies set the tone for the rest of the record. "Lay Down Sally" was a funky, chicken-fried bit of boogie with a taut, melodic aside from Clapton's twangy Stratocaster, while Don Williams' sweet, soulful "We're All The Way" provided a low-key vehicle for Clapton's tender vocal exchanges with Marcy Levy, as his understated arpeggios toll away in the background.Renastered version
Compilation of the best material from this early seventies Canadian hippy rock band. Mainly straight forward rock with a slight country tinge, this includes their big hit single "Signs" and is notable for some excellent harmony vocals together with some richly textured fuzz-guitar and keyboard work.

Probably Scandinavia's most famous '60s/70s rock musician, Keyboard player Bo jammed with Hendrix and wrote "Tax Free". The original version of that is here, together with a whole host of jazzy psychy rock material, utilising Hammond organ and percussion. A highly original sound that inspired many musicians in the future.…
The self produced disc from 1971 begins with the pop excursion "Can You Follow" which blends into "Escape To The Royal Wood (On Ice)" . Jack Bruce provides the voice, keyboards, bass and some percussion, making this very much a solo project. "You Burned The Tables On Me" takes things into a progressive rock meets jazz arena. Once again this re-mastered re-issue features 5 bonus tracks and an excellent informative booklet.
Jack caught live in 1975 performing such gems as "Can You Follow?" "Morning Story", "Smiles And Grins", "Keep It Down","Sunshine Of Your Love","Tickets To Waterfalls/Weird Of Hermiston/Post War" and more. This is the lineup commonly referred to by Bruce aficionados as the "dog's bollocks" - the one with Carla Bley on keyboards, which never recorded a studio album. Fully detailed booklet included.Last copy of this now deleted item.
The man who has one of the most powerful and identifiable rock & roll voices displays it so well on this album from 1974 with the amazing title track which is a real introspection with more "I" references than any other artist's have ever achieved. On this album Bruce switches styles so much with the amazing rock track "Keep It Down" on which Lou Reed/Alice Cooper guitarist Steve Hunter plays his soul out, whilst the track "One" moves from cabaret to blues to soul.This excellent re-mastered re-issue contains 5 bonus tracks.
For this debut 1969 album as with 1971's Harmony Row, Peter Brown composed all the lyrics and Jack wrote the music. Producer Felix Pappalardi added some vocals and provides cellos, vocals, guitar, piano, and bass. It was from this album that Felix took to the idea of using "Theme from an Imaginary Western" for Mountain. An excellent booklet containing the lyrics that displays the serious nature of this project. It is picture perfect in construction, performance, and presentation. Remastered version with 4 bonus tracks.
Recorded in 1968, this re-mastered set includes 1 bonus track. This is a semi-acoustic, semi-electric jazz set with all the acoustically "clean" instruments interacting with the sometimes fiery tone of John McLaughlin's amazing guitar playing.This is quite a different album to what most Jack Bruce fans wanted in 1968 but has stood the test of time very well.
Beautiful US pressing of this the legendary debut 1977 album from Woking's finest punk/mod/ powerpop trio which included the fantastic title track "Bricks & Mortar", "Art School", "Time For Truth" and more. Classic stuff.

Brilliant album which just goes to show the talents of this gentleman. From the title you expect it to be good, but not nearly this good! Jimi honors the Blues music tradition while remaining uniquely himself on this collection of outtakes including "Mannish Boy," the staggering "Once I Had A Woman," and"Bleeding Heart.".Only 1 cut on the 11 track release has been available before and that's the beautiful "Hear My Train a Comin" so who cares!. A 24 page colour booklet rounds off the release.
Rare and expensive jewel, R'n'B stomper with an absolute lunar b-side that tackles "I'm A Man" the way a deranged footballer might tackle an unwitting member of the public. Derangedly indeed.

Official release of this album made after the split of Poll,when Kostas Tournas went on to record a great progressive-psychedelic concept solo album. A major progressive folk-rock opus with no distinction into separate tracks; it's a autobiographic concept album. Tournas wrote and arranged it for a large orchestra -something unbelievable, speaking for Greece back in the early 70's- and a rock group (RUTH). He provided the vocals and the guitars by himself. A must have CD with lyrics/info in English
The superb 2000 release from Stoner Rock Gods Monster Magnet finds Dave and the boys refining their sound further. Much more commercial but with an experimental edge it features over sixty minutes of blazing psychedelic barnstormers including "Melt", "Heads Explode" and the downright freaky "Cry". Includes one bonus track "Silver Future".
Brand spanking new album by MM and it's more killer material from the stoner rockers. Walls of ear-crunching sounds with searing guitar and trippy lyrics guaranteed to leave you wanting more, as well as some pretty groovy '60s styled garage psych!.…
Third full length album from 1993 by the stoner rock kings. Eleven tracks of heavy rock, sweetened with long guitar extemporisations, touches of psych and even a cover of Hawkwind's "Brainstorm". The birth of a legend....
Mutantes third album and a heavier more progressive/acid rock sound but still with the weird and whacky mixture of pop/psych/brazillian music. There is some killer acid wah-wah guitar here, along with moments of fragile acoustic beauty.... Exact vinyl repro.
The Fairies' third album from mid '70s and what a stormer! Larry Wallis' guitar is all over this, as the band decide to concentrate on a heads down no-nonsense speed blasted assault and create a stoned punk classic with "City Kids" and "Raceway" .... Where's Wally ? Digitally remastered with four (two unreleased) bonus tracks and detailed booklet
Debut album from 1971 by the band that featured ex Deviants and Tomorrow/Pretty Things members. This is definitely the bands finest hour mixing Psychedelic, proto-punk mayhem with fantastic West Coast influenced acid rock. A drug fueled "blowout" in every sense of the word. Highlights are "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout", "War Girl, "Teenage Rebel" and "Do It". Remastered version with four bonus tracks including the classic single "The Snake" and detailed booklet.
1972 album of Stoned UK acid / dope / mushroom rock. Acclaimed as a milestone of the genre at the time.

Digital remaster with bonus tracks...Long haired mayhem and great value for money
The debut album from Norwegian 'rural rock' innovators, including some of the most fondly remembered tracks they laid down, such as 'Going Through His Life' 'What Man Has Made Of Man' 'Mild Grey Fog' and the title track itself. Originally released on Polydor in 1972, and best described as 'nicely ramshackle'.
28 stellar recordings from one of the worlds most popular hard rock outfits having evolved from the multi-million selling 70's giants Deep Purple.This Anthology features tracks from their 9 albums including 'Man on the Silver Mountain','Stone Cold','Street of Dreams', ''Tarot Woman''Eyes of the World,the epic 'Stargazer' and more.Comes with an excellent informative booklet.
Possibly Rainbows finest moment? This was their second album released in May'76 with producer Martin Birch at the helm..It features all time classics such as the lengthy 9 minute "Stargazer"and the amazing 8 minute" A Light in the Black".One of the great heavy progressive rock albums of the mid 70's.
CD re-issue of the first solo album by Purple's Ricardo Blackmore.It came about as he went into the studio with the members of the American band Elf to record "Black Sheep of the Family" and "16 C. Greensleeves" for a possible single release.Still a member of Deep Purple at this time he then spent two months recording more with the same band and Martin Birch.So satisfied (read smug) by the results he quit Purple! Released in summer 75 it includes "Black Sheep"(first recorded in 1970 by Quatermass) and an instrumental of Still I'm Sad (Yardbirds),the beautiful Hendrix inspired"Catch the Rainbow", the mediaeval "Temple Of The King" (which he still plays onstage with Blackmore's Night) and more.
Double CD compilation of material by this excellent Norwegian band, dating from 1973 to 1980. Ruphus had a fruitful career ; starting first as a heavy progressive rock band, developing into a tight Yes like progressive outfit before turning into a more commercial jazz rock group. This CD set captures the whole story!
Since becoming a trio in 1971 Savage Rose had recorded the mainly instrumental Dodens Triumf and then in 1973 they made Babylon, a beautiful laid back jazzy affair with gospel influences making the most of Anisettes expressive vocals. The predominant keyboards are augmented with sax, trombone and choirs to give a late night, bluesy feel to the whole record. Beautiful stuff from one of the most diverse bands of the '70's.
When Savage Rose downsized to a three piece in 1971 comprised of the original keyboard brothers Thomas and Anders Koppel and female voaclist Anisette they recorded this landmark album in Danish art rock, which was released in 1972. It was the score for the ballet by Flemming Flindt (the title translates to "Triumph of Death") and was almost entirely instrumental (one song featured Annisette's vocals). A great classically influenced rock record it's atmospheric, proggy, jazzy and melancholic, making for compelling listening.
The great second album from 1969 by this legendary Danish band fronted by wild afro adorned female vocalist Annisette Hansen, featured keyboards with harpsichords to the fore. A very dramatic band with surreal and evocative jazzy leanings, Savage Rose had a unique sound built around the distinctive vocals of Annisettes voice which is somewhere between Grace Slick and Björk! In many ways this album is years ahead of it's time.
The 1971 album from this unusual Danish band who make a mixture of gospel styled vocals and prog rock, with double-keyboard action. This was a solid more traditional rock outing with driving sound, smart lyrics and evocative jazzy leanings. Production was by Rolling Stone's Jimmy Miller and his protégé, the late Joe Zagarino, engineer from' Exile on Main Street'.
Debut 1968 album by one of Denmark's best rock bands formed around the startling voice of female lead vocalist Anisette Hansen and the keyboard players/brothers Anders and Thomas Koppel. This first album is lighter and less jazz orientated than their later albums but still has the bands trademark keyboards to the fore with some melodic guitar work. A good introduction to the band and an early hint of their later prog rock prowess.
Third album from 1969 by this Danish Rock band. More psychedelic than their later work with echoes of the Airplane, Doors, Pink Floyd etc. Combining classical jazz and Danish-Euro folk elements this record was recorded after some abandoned sessions with Giorgio Gomelsky, who had been working with Magma, The Yardbirds, Blossom Toes and Soft Machine. The haunting vocals of female lead singer Annisette take the album away from being a run of the mill recording setting a course for the bands later diverse explorations of Rock, Jazz and Gospel stylings.
In 1974 the core trio of Savage Rose recruited a new band after operating for two albums with a reduced lineup. Thomas and Anders Koppel (keyboards) and Annisette (vocals) were joined by Peer Frost (guitars) Rudolf Hansen (bass) and Ken Gudman (drums) to create a harder progressive rock sound that still featured the diversity that the band had become known for. The result is regarded by many as the bands best album comprising epic keyboard and guitar driven rock with experimental passages and of course Annisette's distinctive and powerful vocals. This was unfortunately the bands last album until a comeback in the late 70's.
Denmark's Savage Rose recorded a wealth of intriguing and eclectic progressive rock in the late '60s and '70s. This is their fourth album from 1970 recorded in Rome, that has a unique sound built around the distinctive vocals of female vocalist Annisette's voice which were multi-tracked in a melodramatic quasi-Spector style. Freeform jazz mixed with prog rock wig outs with keyboards, harpsichord, freaky guitar licks and those distinctive vocals. Magic.
Shhh! Keep it to yourself but this is the great The Fleur-De-Lys recording under a pseudonym. Originally released in 1968 and extremely rare, unless you're super rich or super-lucky this perfect repro 7" is the nearest you'll ever get to an original.

A Colombian band who released this, their fifth and final album in Mexico in 1968. It's a bizarre garage psych album with snatches of Mutantes like folk-weirdness, experimental oddities and fuzz filled acid rock. Imagine a cross between Mutantes and the Mothers Of Invention! (this album was released on vinyl as Cris Cringle a few years back in the wrong sleeve). Now available in a stunning laminated gatefold reproduction of the original cover. Very limited.
Two very different albums from the great '70's Dutch band. The first one, from 1973, is an instrumental progressive concept album based on Alexander The Great, whilst the 1974 release returns to the familiar Zappa-esque jazzy craziness of earlier albums - track titles like "Dangling Dingdongs" will give you some idea of what we mean. First time we've heard a Dutch band using bagpipes as well !
Two originals from this Dutch band of loonies, who mixed a melodic Canterbury type jazz rock sound with a Bonzos/Zappa vocal style - making for some highly strange but very entertaining music. These two titles were first issued in 1970 and 1971. Superb from start to finish....
Two more original early Seventies albums on one CD from the great Dutch band who mixed jazz and progressive rock in a style similar to Caravan. Fans of Zappa and The Canterbury sound will especially love these quirky albums which are loaded with melodic yet experimental music that combines zany quirky vocals with some superb instrumentation... Recommended !

All these tracks show Rory at his most creative and most humble. 12 page detailed booklet rounds off the package.
1968 debut album from the Norwegian multi-instrumentalist who was in The Dream. Previously having dabbled with beat and psychedelic pop, for this album he explored the possibilities of blues and jazz rock fusion. Jan Garbarek contributed sax and flute, and this is an accomplished effort that would not be out of place alongside other exponents of the genre.
American singer songwriter who owed as much to blues and jazz as folk. This is a collection of mid 60's songs.

In 1967 the social anarchists of New York, ably abetted by Andy Warhol produced this response to the peace and love vibes of the West Coast. This album is angry, spiky and in its' own way revolutionary, culminating in the 17 minute epic "Sister Ray" which crackles with energy and angst. Stunning!
Legendary album from 1967, and the album that launched New York's punk psychedelic art rock band to the world. A timeless classic that Includes Lou Reed's great songs "Heroin", "Waiting For The Man" and "Venus In Furs", plus the wonderful voice of chanteuse Nico and the avant garde ideas of John Cale.

Rare and beautiful 1967 single by Fleur De Lys, recording under yet another pseudonym (you'd think they were trying to test future collectors with all these names!).

Fantastic limited double vinyl issue (single sleeve and 2 full colour records bags) of this rather popular foray into the radio work of one of the UK's most important bands. Covering the years 1965 to 1973, with heavy emphasis on the earlier pre-Tommy years, the BBC Sessions assembles some of the group's performances, on-air interviews and radio jingles. A great addition to any Who collection and worth the price for the opening My Generation Radio 1 jingle alone.
26 tracks recorded between 1965 and 1973 for "Saturday Club", "Top Gear", "Dave Lee Travis Show" and "The Old Grey Whistle Test". From the early R 'n' B beats of "Good Lovin" and "My Generation" through the Mod screamers "I'm A Boy" and "Substitute" to the pop-sike of "Pictures of Lily" and "Happy Jack" this collection is a fine addition to the catalogue.

The Who's tenth album released in the UK November 1973.

Later this music was to become the soundtrack to the film in the 80's. Remastered CD, enhanced sound quality and 24 page booklet.

CD re-issue of the 1967 album that saw the Who soften/broaden their sound and included the classic "I Can See For Miles" the beautiful and underated "Relax" and the opening psychedelic-pop blast of "Armenia City in the Sky".The album had jingles (musical adverts) in between tracks in order to mimic a pirate radio station. Also features many favourites of hardcore Who obsessives such as 'Tattoo' 'Odorono' and another of Townshend's mini operas 'Rael' which obviously influenced Genesis. Many of the bonus tracks feature melodies and riffs which would further develop in the subsequent 'Tommy' opus. A vital stone in the foundation of the 'concept album' genre and of rock in general. Remastered version with expanded booklet and bonus material.

Perhaps one of the true contenders for the greatest rock album of all time. Released in 1971 when The Who were at the peak of their live powers and Pete Townsend was at a frazzled creative high, every track on this superb record is a killer. "Baba O' Riley" "Bargain" "Behind Blue Eyes" and of course "Won't Get Fooled Again" - the album is emotionally charged, tight as hell and perfectly focused. With re-mastered sound and a bonus disc containing outakes and live tracks which have also been remixed and are mostly previously unreleased.Complete with a thick booklet crammed with text and photo's all housed in a fold out digi pack, this is the ultimate edition.
