Crooked Beat recently acquired a large used collection of over 1,000 records, filled with ’60s-’70s Rock, Soul, Jazz, and Garage. Almost all of the records are in great condition, including numerous titles from the Beatles, Supremes, Rolling Stones, Queen, Nuggets, and Pebbles Garage Rock Compilations.
Pebbles compilations make over 800 ’60s punk and garage obscurities accessible to lovers of rock and roll. Lenny Kaye defined the term “punk rock” to describe the raw and gutteral energy of the music of these crude releases, fueled by unaffected teenage energy. Lenny Kay was a music pioneer. He was a journalist, member of the Patti Smith group, catalogued the Nugget and Pebbles complilations, and produced Patti Smith’s debut single “Hey Joe.”
Also included in Crooked Beat’s recent acquisitions: Miles Davis, John Coltrane and many many more. Some of the rarest records they got in are the Mobile Fidelity Audiophile Pressings of The Beatles’ White Album and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon. For Jazz buffs who may be interested, I found an original Blue Note Stereo pressing in VG+ condition of Hank Mobley’s Dippin.
Just in at Som: a WHOLE BUNCH of great used stuff from Captain Beefheart, Brian Eno, Chuck Brown, Junior Wells, Etoile de Dakar, The Cramps, Medasi, Alice Cooper, The Gorillaz, Mars Volta, They Might Be Giants, Wildman Fischer, Galt MacDermot, Joy Division, Miles Davis, and more.
