The Plimsouls: Beach Town Confidential | 15 Feb 2012 // 3:00 PM
Recorded in Huntington Beach in 1983, this melodic white-hot power-pop ball of energy blows away any previous Plimsouls live recording you may have heard.
Henry's Funeral Shoe: Donkey Jacket | 12 Oct 2011 // 3:59 PM
Crossing the borderline between electric-blues-powered rock-a-boogie and acoustic country-blues, this great second album builds upon the first and makes you long to hear the third.
Various Artists: Piccadilly Sunshine Part Five | 20 Sep 2011 // 3:56 PM
A handful of outstanding tracks book-ending some of the best forgotten bottom-end chart filler from the late '60s -- after the splendid fourth volume, Past & Present's latest installment takes a dip in quality.
Quintus McCormick Blues Band: Put It on Me! | 14 Sep 2011 // 3:56 PM
Another 15 solid originals that showcase McCormick's versatile vocals as he moves from smooth operating soul balladeer to low-down bluesman.
Elonkorjuu: Harvest Time | 29 Aug 2011 // 3:56 PM
Rare does not always equate with great, as this album by an early prog-rock quintet from Finland demonstrates. File under "for collectors only".
