John Fahey
The Voice of The Turtle

John Fahey was truly a marvel, rediscovering, performing and recording traditional country blues with a precision and dedication unmatched by any other artist. This album shows the artist's wickedly droll sense of humour, along with a welcome experiment with some decidedly psychedelic sounds. It is this unexpected quirkiness that adds real perso...view item »

Funkadelic
Maggot Brain

This album from Funkadelic is one of those pieces you should have in your record collection if you have any pretentions of being a music fan. Seriously. Why haven’t you? You’re not a music fan; you secretly like the Spice Girls, don’t you? And the new stuff from Take That. Ugh. Stop. Buy this. ...view item »

Iggy Pop
The Idiot

Iggy Pop made his official debut as a solo artist with this record and has struggled to scale the heights of this brilliant album since. Drugged up & boozed up after The Stooges broke up, Iggy was in the midst of a downward spiral when Bowie dragged him off to Berlin, got him sobered up (somewhat) and helped him write a couple of rockin' alb...view item »

Milton Nascimento
Clube Da Esquina

Four fellers with facial hair come up trumps with a repress of Milton Nascimento tropicalia masterpiece 'Clube Da Esquina'. Named after the collective of Brazilian musicians and arrangers (most notably Lo Borges and arranger Eumir Deodato) he helped found in his home town of Minas Gerais 'Club Da Esquina' ('Corners Club') fuses the sounds of Bos...view item »

Iggy Pop
Lust For Life

Iggy’s second solo album came hot on the heels of the similarly Bowie-produced, but stylistically very different The Idiot (both 1977). With the Sales brothers on bass and drums and Carlos Alomar and Ricky Gardiner on guitars, this is much more of a rock a...view item »

John Fahey
Guitar Vol. 4 / The Great San Bernardino Birthday Party and Other Excursions

Vol. 4 - The Great San Bernardino Birthday Party and Other Excursions by famed acoustic guitarist John Fahey was originally released in 1966. The instrumentation makes it a child of its time: flute, sitar and backwards guitar. However, the experimental soundscapes resulting from the interplay between Fahey...view item »

John Fahey
Dance of Death & Other Plantation Favorites

A re-issue of the 1964 album from the old master in which he uses the old tunes he learnt as a teenager as a basis to make new and thrilling shapes from his guitar. This album shows Fahey as an artist in transformation and only hints at what was to come later. Essential re-issue on 180 gram vinyl from the folks and the trustworthy 4 Men with Bea...view item »

John Fahey
Volume I: Blind Joe Death

This is the great Fahey's first album. Originally laid down on his own dime in 1959, John Fahey/Blind Joe Death was a quiet entry into the market: Fahey sold some copies from the Esso station where he was night manager, put others in thrift store record bins, gave them to friends. It still took three years to sell out of the 100 copies. Original...view item »

John Fahey

Well, if you're thinking about buying a Fahey box set the odds are you already love Fahey. So really, it just comes down to getting all the Fahey you want at a good price. If so, go for it. If you've been listening to Fahey on Spotify or mp3 and you want to upgrade to the physical world, this is going to be as good value as you're likely to find...view item »

Funkadelic
Free Your Mind... And Your Ass Will Follow

The 4 Men With Beards label are bringing this legendary piece of far-out funk to vinyl, complete with very limited clear pressing. Funkadelic’s Free Your Mind...and Your Ass Will Follow is a masterpiece of wild 1970s funk and R&B. The group’s second album is acid-fried, out of control funk full o...view item »

John Cale
The Academy In Peril

Ex-Velvets member and founded John Cale used 'The Academy In Peril' to think outside of the punk rock box and make music informed by classical and instrumental compositions. It answers a fundamental question of life: what would it be like if John Cale played with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra? 'The Academy In Peril' plays high and low at the ...view item »

Moondog
Moondog (1956)

As far as flabbergasting records go, Moondog's 53 year old self-titled debut on the Prestige label must rank as one of the most otherworldly discs of the 20th century. We're playing a dynamite 4 Men With Beards 180gm re-issue here & trying to work out why the reliably cultured & respectful Honest Jon's confusingly re-named this record 'Snak...view item »

The Durutti Column
LC

The second Durutti Column album, LC, was first released in 1981, and it still carries a certain remarkable feel to it. These expanded reissues present the original album in remastered form, and add in a number of compilation tracks, demos, and other rarities: the exact number of bonus tracks varies depending on whether ...view item »

MC5
Back In The USA

'Back In The USA' was actually the debut album from proto-punks MC5, released in 1970 and full of hard rock fury complemented with the good vibe hooks of pop outfits like the Beach Boys. The record had a lasting influence on early punk rock, and all that greasy hair probably influenced the Strokes at some point. 'Back I...view item »

Serge Gainsbourg
Gainsbourg Percussions

Serge Gainsbourg went tribal on his 1964 release, which prominently features a throbbing Afro-Caribbean rhythm, a dynamic female choir, and -- as its title suggests -- lots of percussion. The best songs are usually those that fuse precisely those three characteristics, although a couple of slower, more straightforward jazz tracks are sprinkled t...view item »

Hawkwind
Hawkwind

If you're a Hawkwind fan, buy this. You won't regret it. I first heard of them with 'In Search of Space' but got hooked with 'Hall of the Mountain Grille'. I've been a fan ever since. While I strongly recommend this to people who are already familiar with them or are already fans, this may not be the best introduction LP to their music because t...view item »

Funkadelic
Funkadelic

Self-titled first album from 1970s funk pioneers Funkadelic. George Clinton and his army of platform wearing, flare flying, glitter freaks were at the forefront of the funk movement in the US, creating both an awesome sound and a legend that purported that the band were extraterrestrial. This release is limited to just 1000 copi...view item »

Caravan
If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You

More than just a great album title. Caravan produced this prog rock gem in 1970 and the Canterbury born LP has stood the test of time. The opening title track rollocks along as the Hammond B-3 snakes its way around the band’s strange meters and rhythms. The pattern follows on songs such as "Hello Hello" and "As I Feel I Di...view item »

Violent Femmes
Hallowed Ground

Following up a classic like the Violent Femmes debut was always going to be a big ask. However, Gordon Gano had saved some classics for Hallowed Ground, such as Country Death Song, which he wrote in 10th Grade. Gano did use Hollowed Ground to display some of his Christian beliefs, lyrically taking the ...view item »

Scott Walker
Scott 2

Another classic from Walker's impeccable career, this time his second solo album. Featuring yet more luxuriuant arranngements upon which Scott's charismatic baritone relates alarmingly frank tales of despair and deception. A unique exploration of the dark underbelly of easy-listening schmalz!  ...view item »

'Use of Ashes' was the fourth, and many would argue finest, Pearls Before Swine album. Originally recorded in 1970, front man Tom Rapp penned the bulk of the songs in his wife's native Netherlands. Since all the other band members had left after the previous album, 'Use of Ashes' was recorded in Nashville using session musicians. Vinyl repress.&...view item »

Bill Fay

The Monochrome Set
Love Zombies

The Monochrome Set are emerging as the forgotten heroes of the post-punk early eighties. This extremely quirky British band had an abundance of talent that others could only dream of. Yet the band was usually met with disdain or derision from fans and critics alike in the 1980's. Thirty years later and the significance of the band is finally rec...view item »

Miles Davis
Agharta

Miles had a hard time moving his music from acoustic to electric, and freely admitted it. To play loud electric body music, Miles needed to rebuild his music from the ground up. Miles spent a lot of time studying how Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Muddy Waters and Sly Stone could create loud, electric music that ex...view item »

Whether or not you love Miles Davis, or this album for that matter you must admit that this is one of the most astonishing pieces of work ever created.

Simply powerful stuff. I will admit that this is not one that I reach for when I'm in the mood for Miles, but it is when I want something dark, electric and unrelenting.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Ice Cream For Crow

Lyrically, it is not as challenging as some of his earlier releases and allows an easier look into the mind of a very honest human. The music is perfect. Something I have always liked about Capt Beefheart is that he gets across that there is great beauty in things that on the surface are uncomfortable and difficult to understand.

This is the type of work I wish Beefheart would have done more of.

Nothing elsewhere sounds like this blues guitar drenched gumbo...which i...view item »

From way back in 1969, Scott 4 is a classic of intense and majestic songcraft; the first set of entirely Walker penned songs combining sophisticated, easy-listening pop with lyrical complexity touching on the darkest of subject matter.

Sometimes derided as some sort of Los Angeles Velvets wannabe, the Syndicate often explored the kinds of topics left untouched by some of America's great popular "innovators".

On his third attempt at being the one and only Walker brother worth a damn, the not-yet-evil Scott Walker got more miserable and eerie, taking his baroque pop disciplines and the usual commanding baritone and marrying them with the darkest of lyrics.

Big Star were a rock 'n' roll band formed in the 70s with a hugely ironic name; they were never big in their time.
