      Greatest Hits CD
      by Lovin' Spoonful
    Our Price: $8.99 CD / $9.99 MP3
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    Recorded from 1965-1968. Originally released on Kama Sutra. Includes liner notes by Ben Edmonds. Digitally remastered by Bob Irwin (Sundazed Studios, Coxsackie, New York). The Lovin' Spoonful was one of the very first bands to take part in the folk-rock boom of the mid-1960s, creating something of an East Coast equivalent to the Byrds' seminal L.A. jangle. The original group's lineup was regrettably short-lived, all their classic material getting released on Buddha records, so the label's definitive GREATEST HITS collection presented none of the usual cross-licensing difficulties.

    All the highlights of the Spoonful's '60s discography are here--the airy, transcendent pop of the jubilant "Do You Believe in Magic" and the almost Association-like "You Didn't Have to Be So Nice," the tougher rock sound of "Summer in the City," the romantic ballad "Darling Be Home Soon," and more. The rootsier side of the ensemble can be heard as well, on the likes of "Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind" and "Jug Band Music." Led by John Sebastian's mellifluous voice and graceful songwriting and Zal Yanovsky's chiming guitar, the Spoonful turned out some of the most memorable singles of the '60s, and they're all right here.
    Entertainment Weekly (3/10/00, p.71) - "...a generous 26-track compilation, main man John Sebastian's knack for the indelible melody is writ large...and the band's unique folk-country-pop hybrid still sounds astonishingly fresh..." - Rating: A-


      Beatles: Limited Edition Mono Box Set CD
      by Beatles
    Our Price: $253.49 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    The STEREO BOX SET be the official canon, but what Beatlemaniacs have really craved is the MONO BOX SET. This limited-edition box is laden with new-to-CD mixes, including the genuine rarities of the previously unreleased mono mixes of the four new songs from Yellow Submarine, and its packaging is gorgeous, filled with mini-LP replicas with stiff cardboard sleeves of every album from Please Please Me to The Beatles, complete with replicated gatefolds and packaging inserts, all protected in resealable plastic sleeves. As pure physical product, this satisfies any collector itch, but this also is arguably the better-sounding of the two sets, providing ample evidence that the Beatles did spend more time on mono mixes during much of their career. For generations of listeners raised on stereo mixes, there are plenty of surprises here, from the faster versions of "She's Leaving Home" and "Don't Pass Me By" to the numerous little differences that pop up on SGT. PEPPER'S, THE WHITE ALBUM, and REVOLVER, all adding up to dramatically different experiences. Sometimes, the density of mono just has more force-- "Lady Madonna" rolls like a freight train, "I'm Down" hits to the gut--and sometimes the colors just seem more vibrant; in either case, there's enough emotional difference to make this worthwhile for the dedicated, and depending on taste, it may even be preferable. But there's no question of one thing: of the two sets, as a package, the mono box is a thing to behold.
    There's no question that those who waited 22 years to hear a better version of the Beatles will not be disappointed (although they may still wonder why it took so long for the Fabs to be treated as they deserve).


      Do What You Want Be What You Are: The Music of Daryl Hall John Oates CD
      by Hall & Oates
    Our Price: $38.40 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    It's telling that DO WHAT YOU WANT TO BE WHAT YOU ARE, Sony/Legacy's comprehensive, career-spanning Daryl Hall and John Oates box set, takes its title from a moderately successful mid-'70s single from the duo, written and recorded just as the group was hitting their creative stride. The slow Philly groove of "Do What You Want Be Who You Are" may have hearkened back to the duo's soul roots, side-stepping some of the outré pop experiments they had done just two years earlier on War Babies, but Hall & Oates took the title's sentiment to heart, blurring boundaries between rock, pop, and soul in a way that wasn't always easy to appreciate at the peak of their popularity in the '80s.

    During that decade, Hall & Oates were omnipresent, seemingly dominating every radio format and MTV, racking up so many hits that it was easy to overlook how "Private Eyes" wore bright, angular New Wave threads, or how "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" pulsated on electronic rhythms, not to mention the duo's earliest folk-rock records. DO WHAT YOU WANT TO BE brings all this into perspective, rounding up all the group's big hits and sharply selected album tracks, enhancing the canon with several rarities ranging from early singles (Hall as a member of the Temptones, Oates as one of the Masters) to a host of live cuts from throughout the years.

    Many of the live tracks are mildly revelatory--particularly the lengthy stretch of WAR BABIES material at the end of Disc One, which diminishes the Todd Rundgren influence and emphasizes Hall & Oates' muscular melodicism. The group's forté was within the studio, where they set the sounds of the time, from the lush early '70s to the synthesized '80s. This, too, is where the box shines, when it traces the duo's remarkable, restless progression from WHOLE OATES to BIG BAM BOOM, a narrative that takes up the first three discs of the four-disc set.
    Like many career-spanning boxes, this does lose a little momentum on the last disc, when the hits start to slow down, but by smartly balancing outtakes and unreleased concert cuts, this final disc makes a convincing argument for Hall & Oates' enduring strengths adding a fitting coda to a box that stands as a testament to the duo's considerable musical legacy.


      Very Best Of The Drifters CD
      by The Drifters
    Our Price: $8.99 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    THE VERY BEST OF THE DRIFTERS features 16 tracks recorded between 1959 and 1964. Includes historic black and white photographs and liner notes by Steve Propes.

    THE VERY BEST is a definitive anthology of the Drifters' most fertile and commercially successful period (1959-64), after their initial early '50s rock hits with lead vocalist Clyde McPhatter. During this period, the group was essentially the mouthpiece for the boundless imagination of the greatest of the Brill Building songwriters.

    As a result, what you'll find here are such classics as " Up on the Roof", Gerry Goffin and Carole King's gorgeously romantic ode to working class escape and freedom, along with a virtual embarrassment of riches. These include timeless, often-covered songs by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill ("On Broadway" "Saturday Night at the Movies"), Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman ("Sweets for My Sweet," "This Magic Moment," "Save the Last Dance for Me", "I Count the Tears"), and Burt Bacharach ("Please Stay").
    Additional personnel includes: Billy Davis, Phil Spector (guitar); Dee Dee Warwick, Dionne Warwick, Doris Troy, Cissy Houston (background vocals).


      Very Best Of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons CD
      by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
    Our Price: $12.45 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    Released in 2002, this excellent 20-track collection, lovingly compiled by the Rhino label, features many of Frankie Valli's finest moments, both as part of the Four Seasons and on his own. While the majority of the disc focuses on the falsetto-voiced singer's string of 1960s hits with his impeccable Jersey boys that made up the Four Seasons, including the energetic, neo-doo-wopper "Sherry" and the optimistic "Let's Hang On (To What We've Got)," it also makes room for solo singles, such as the dreamy "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and the funky theme from "Grease."

    2002 compilation packs a single CD with 20 classics recorded for Vee-Jay, Phillips, Curb/Warner, Private Stock, & RSO between 1962-1978. Remastered from original master tapes. Rhino.



      Very Best Of Otis Redding CD
      by Otis Redding
    Our Price: $8.55 CD / $10.89 MP3
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    It is impossible to overrate Otis Redding. This Rhino compilation, while in no way comprehensive, is nonetheless an outstanding sampler of songs by one of soul music's all-time titans. There's not a dud among these 16 songs, and some, like "These Arms Of Mine," "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay," and "Try A Little Tenderness," rank among the greatest pop songs ever recorded.

    Redding's performances are mesmerizing and seem to embody the perfect balance between acute sensitivity and sheer overwhelming emotional strength. The combination of Redding's magnetism and the quality of such songs as "Mr. Pitiful," "I Can't Turn You Loose," and "Respect" is almost too good to be true. The album's only shortcoming is that there aren't more tracks to savor. A perfect introduction to this phenomenal singer.

      Where The Action Is: Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968 CD
      by Los Angeles Nuggets
    Our Price: $52.75 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    WHERE THE ACTION IS! LOS ANGELES NUGGETS: 1956-1968, Rhino's 2009 sequel to their 2007 Nuggets box LOVE IS THE SONG WE SING, shifts the spotlight down the California coast, moving from the epicenter of the hippie universe in San Francisco to hipsville central in Los Angeles, the land where fringe-wearing folk-rockers strolled down the Sunset Strip alongside studio cats on the make. Both groups of hipsters are equally well-represented on WHERE THE ACTION IS!, along with the teens raising a ruckus out in the suburbs and the stars who stretched out, all based on the sounds they heard coming from the Strip, the section of Sunset that serves as the fulcrum for this entire set. The compilers focus on a brief time, the four-year stretch from 1965 to 1968, where Los Angeles was overrun with dance clubs and nightspots, all giving bands as wonderful and distinct as the Byrds, Love, the Doors, the Seeds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Leaves places to explore, opening up avenues that others followed, either in music or spirit. Some of this filtered through the prism of the studio, where there were plenty of musicians infatuated with the sounds of Brian Wilson, who pops up toward the end on an alternate take of "Heroes and Villains," but there's also no denying the impact of hustlers and hucksters like Kim Fowley, or how Hollywood could package and polish all of it up in the form of the Monkees.

    And all of it is here in bright, flashing neon on WHERE THE ACTION IS!, which helps make it one of the liveliest of the Nuggets boxes, but also the one that seems to stray furthest from the series' mission to excavate unheard garage rock and psychedelia; after all, the Beach Boys, the Byrds, and the Doors are hardly unknown quantities or one-hit wonders. Yet, in its own way, WHERE THE ACTION IS! is as crucial as any of the boxes that followed the first Nuggets set, for it documents a brief, shining moment in time where everything and anything seemed possible. It's not archeology but pop culture anthropology that does an excellent job of charting the rise of the L.A. underground, illustrating its first surfacing in the mainstream, connecting the dots in a fashion that may surprise even some dedicated pop and rock fans, those that might not realize how the Turtles, Bobby Fuller Four, the Standells, the Association, the Electric Prunes, Nilsson, Captain Beefheart and Iron Butterfly were all connected, however loosely, or how Rick Nelson and Del Shannon got weird as the decade started to draw to a close. These connections, along with discovering dozens of gems from lesser-known artists, are the reason why WHERE THE ACTION IS! winds up being a blast, as well as a revelation just like any other Nuggets set.



      Retrospective CD
      by Animals
    Our Price: $13.65 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    Today the most recognition the Animals get is "House of the Rising Sun" being played on oldies radio, but in the mid-1960s they were a powerful part of the British Invasion, often reckoned on a par with the Beatles, the Stones, and the Who. Like those bands, the Animals had strong roots in blues and R&B, but, in their original incarnation, they stayed closer to those roots than their peers did. This definitive compilation, masterfully assembled by the ABKCO think tank of Teri Landi and Jody Klein, shows the tough, uncompromising use to which the Animals put their American influences. John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom" is recast as a raw garage rocker glazed with Alan Price's sinister organ riffs, and the aforementioned "House of the Rising Sun" is transformed from a traditional folk lament to an urgent, ominous piece of churning tumult.

    Of course, the group skillfully expanded those roots (with the help of some great writers), and turned out some classic working-class-rebel anthems ("We Gotta Get Out of This Place," "It's My Life"). By '67, the original lineup disbanded, and Eric Burdon led a new batch of Animals into a psychedelic West Coast sound ("San Franciscan Nights," "Monterey"). The Animals may not be given pride of place in the rock history books, but RETROSPECTIVE shows that they fully deserve it.



      50 Greatest Love Songs CD
      by Elvis Presley
    Our Price: $25.39 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    When will the onslaught of Elvis Presley repackaging end? This is the question even the most obsessive Elvis collectors have been asking themselves ever since the king's death. Apparently, as the intervening decades have shown, the answer is never. So those who admire the man's work might as well sit back and enjoy the seemingly endless parade of new clothes adorning the royal catalog. A collection of Elvis's love songs is hardly a new spin, but a compilation this extensive (the titular 50 tunes take up two full discs) is an impressive turn of events.

    Those who long for the rockabilly rebel of the Sun Records era should look elsewhere, but anyone entranced by Elvis's way with a romantic ballad will be in heaven upon experienced the abundance of riches here. From the milestone "Suspicious Minds" to the Kris Kristofferson evergreen "For the Good Times," this set runs the romantic gamut with considerable aplomb.
    Definitive collection of the greatest love songs ever recorded by Elvis.
