Booker T. & the MGs - In The Christmas Spirit LP
Price: $15.98
Retail: $24.98
Availability: In Stock
Item #: LP 5053 -

    Booker T. & the MG's -- the heart, soul and pulse of Stax Records -- cut their incredible holiday album, In the Christmas Spirit in mid-1966. With their unique, soulful groove, Jones, Cropper, Dunn and Jackson interpret 12 holiday classics, infusing each and every track with funk, taste and style. Just listen to that chiming organ, that pulsing bass, that ringing guitar--and is that 12 drummers drumming? No, it's just Al Jackson, the man with a beat so big that the elves can hear it all the up...

    Booker T. & the MGs - Soul Dressing LP
    Price: $15.98
    Retail: $24.98
    Availability: In Stock
    Item #: LP 5042 -

      Following up their smash debut album Green Onions, 1965?s Soul Dressing keeps the MG?s party going in fine fashion. From the first smack of Al Jackson?s crisp-as-a-potato-chip snare attack, the groove never lets up on these 12 original tracks. Guitarists will want to pay special attention to Steve Cropper?s aggressive, proto-fuzz/funk Telecastering (as surely, Jimi Hendrix, Ernie Isley and Billy Gibbons were all doing at the time). Add to that mix the cooking organ and high-voltage electric...

        A cryptic aura still surrounds the whereabouts and personnel lineage of this (presumably) Los Angeles, California based combo. "Little Bad News," the first of two Chattahoochee label singles issued during the latter half of 1965, featured keyboard player Dennis Culver alongside the sneering, sinister sounding vocal howls from lead singer, Lynn Ready (also a former, short-lived member of Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeers in 1957). Before fading away, the Bostweeds were contracted in...

          NOW AVAILABLE ON COLORED VINYL! Flushed from Fayetteville, North Carolina-where they thought they could remain comfortably obscure-by our release of their only album, the Runners have recently re-surfaced. Issued in ultra-limited quantity by B.T. Puppy in 1970-and now changing hands for sums more familiar to NASDAQ-this is an other-worldly blend of sweet female blotter acid harmonies, hypnotic Farfisa and high-octane fuzz guitar histrionics. ...

            Far into the Northern California outback, the Brogues hailed from Merced, eighty miles due east of San Jose, halfway between the San Joaquin valley hub towns of Fresno and Stockton on old highway 99. The original four piece configuration of the Brogues -- featuring guitar/vocals Rick Campbell and Eddie Rodrigues, bass/vocals Bill Whittington and drummer Greg Elmore -- cut Rodrigues' jangly yet snotty "Someday," and backed it with Campbell and Elmore's driving stop-and-go rocker "But Now I...

Growing more confident by the day in their studio acumen and songwriting skills, the Byrds logged long nights of hypnotic in-studio jamming, then hammered the white-hot magma into songs that will live forever.

                                  By 1966, the Byrds had powered up like a mammoth Atlas rocket boosting Astronauts into orbit around the Earth, with their third album, Fifth Dimension. This amped-up new sound--immediately dubbed raga-rock due to the Byrds newfound fascination with the music of Ravi Shankar and John Coltrane--is best exemplified by "Eight Miles High," yet another national pop smash, and "5D (Fifth Dimension)," both swirling, multi-hued masses of sonic energy on an interplanetary scale. "5D" is tethered to a...

In the blink of an eye, they're into the most beautiful baroque folk-rock ever created, the Carole King/Gerry Goffin-penned "Goin' Back."

Tired of dipping a toe into the genre, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman added singer Gram Parsons and drummer Kevin Kelley and went for total immersion. The baptism of country-rock was a natural with Parsons, former International Submarine Band frontman, now on board. And the repertoire was wide open for country classics by...

                                                            When "Mr. Tambourine Man" first rumbled out of car radio speakers in 1965, it was a pivotal moment in pop history. With its jangling 12-string and epic sweep, it was the dawn of a new day: the birth of folk-rock. And the Byrds were just getting started. The next two years saw one hit after another, from the Biblical prophesies of "Turn, Turn, Turn" to the raga-rock of "Eight Miles High," from the exotic orchestration of "So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star" to the Byrds bringing it all back...

Turn!," the song that placed them squarely on top of the mountain of a U.S. rock scene, feverishly bubbling away in answer to '64's British Invasion. The alchemical number, with lyrics straight out of the Bible's book of Ecclesiastes, was a perfect fit for a growing hippie counter-culture about to turn the world upside down.

Despite being one of the most influential artists of the rock era, Captain Beefheart's vinyl catalog is often exasperatingly elusive. One of the rarest of them all is the "Abba Zaba/Yellow Brick Road" single, issued by Buddha Records in December 1967. An early blueprint of Beefheart's singular musical construction, it has long been a "holy grail" for 45 RPM enthusiasts around the world. With...

Don Van Vliet acquired the habit of singing along to vintage blues records while hanging with high school chum Frank Zappa. Founder Alex Snouffer formed the Magic Band in late 1964. And, by early 1965, the powerful and charismatic local blues combo had made quite a name for itself locally as "the band" for local dances at the fairgrounds. By late '65 the inclusion of master guitarist Rich Hepner...

That was reportedly A&M jefe Jerry Moss' reaction to the demos presented to him by Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart, as Van Vliet and his Magic Band prepared to record their fourth album. Moss dropped the band from the label, leaving them to seek another outlet for their uncompromising music. They landed at Buddah Records, soon to be riding high on a series of bubblegum singles, culminating in the Lemon Pipers' #1 hit, "Green Tambourine." Led by young music executive Neil...

The A-side found the Captain's voice and harmonica battling for supremacy with Ry Cooder's stinging guitar licks. The B-side, meanwhile, follows him through tempo and time signature changes as he sings his opaque version of a love song. This promo single is so rare that most Beefheart fans have never seen it, let alone...
