Four of the five original members of The Byrds appear on Younger Than Yesterday, their fourth album recorded in 1966 and released in 1967. Time has shown it to be among the most durable of the band's albums. David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, and Chris Hillman come into their own as songwriters and Michael Clarke continued to mature into an impressive drummer. The album successfully expands their musical styles into several different directions yet remains a focused set blending folk-rock, heavy psychedelia, jazz influences and early indicators of the country rock direction the band later pursued…

Glass Flowers is a 1969 album by The Elysian Spring. While this was pressed on compact disc in Japan in 2009, this is not the Japanese pressing but looks like a homemade/custom-made printing and I am honestly uncertain as to how I obtained this. It sounds great, and may be a vinyl rip.

Obray Ramsey and Byard Ray were a country music duo called White Lightnin'. After the group recorded a debut for ABC Records, they moved to Polydor and released Fresh Air, with help from Russel George, Eric Anderson, and Judy Collins among many. This was their last album, unfortunate since they were very good.

On My Own is the 1970 debut album by Los Angeles soul singer Vessie Simmons. She was a member of The Ribbons before she branched out on her own and not only released her music on her own label but co-produced it. A few of these songs sound like disco years before disco became a reality.

Billy Preston’s debut album for Apple Records was his vocal album debut too. Before this Billy was renowned merely as a wizard instrumentalist. Here, his impassioned vocals help create one of the best soul records of the 1960s. Produced by George Harrison, That’s The Way… expands Billy’s palette of gospel and R&B to embrace rock elements brought in by A-list players Keith Richards, Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton.

In 2000, Britain's RCA Camden line mounted an extensive Harry Nilsson reissue campaign, remastering the original albums, offering bonus tracks, and combining the LPs into two-fers where possible. His first two records were issued as part of a double disc set, with the first disc devoted to the two original albums and the second containing his remixed, re-re-recorded consolidation of the two, Aerial Pandemonium Ballet, plus four unreleased tracks, all of high quality…

A commercial and critical success, Vincebus Eruptum peaked at number 11 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and spawned the top-20 hit cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues". It is lauded as one of the first heavy metal albums.

Recorded over the course of three months in 1962, Coltrane was John Coltrane's third album for Impulse, but his first for the label devoted entirely to his regular working group. It was also the first album on any label to showcase what came to be known as the classic John Coltrane Quartet. That group – with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – established itself in its four years of existence as one of the most influential ensembles in jazz, and one of the most popular as well. Coltrane documents its genesis.

'Back from Middle Earth', The Hobbit's third & most rare psychedelic recording, appeared in 1969 on Hobbit-supremo Jimmy Curtiss' Perception label. 'Back From Middle Earth' is a solid '60s pop album which highlights the vocal talents of Curtiss & session-singer Gini Eastwood & is completely free of any reference to Curtiss' doo-wop past, as indeed are the three heavily psych-influenced 45s Curtiss produced (he also co-wrote two of the tracks) for Decca stable-mates The Bag in 1968.

White Out is a 2017 bootleg CD by British pop combo The Beatles. The information with the set says it consists of "top-notch sounding White Album outtakes from 1968" and is "a partial sonic upgrade to the previous release of this title." This was released by the Ass Blaster label and is the perfect way to listen to origins of an album released 49 years ago on 22 November, 1968.

These sessions live at Art D'Lugoff's Village Gate night club in Greenwich Village on May 31, 1963 were at one point previously unreleased, eventually issued by the short-lived Metro subsidiary of MGM on vinyl sometime after being recorded. The session is barely over 30 minutes, the sound is a bit thin (but not to its detriment), but Smith's playing is peerless as always, and his band with guitarist Quentin Warren and young drummer Billy Hart may be a curiosity for some. Warren is not the best or most adept plectrist Smith had employed, but gets the job done in a quiet, unassuming manner…

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a new deluxe 3CD which tells the story of the so- called “underground” era of one of Britain’s great independent record labels of the 1960s & 1970s, Transatlantic Records. In the heady atmosphere of the late 1960s, the sea change in British popular music spearheaded by the Beatles experimentation on the Sergeant Pepper album and swiftly followed by the likes of Cream, Pink Floyd, Traffic, Family, Procol Harum, Jethro Tull and a host of groups and musicians who followed in their footsteps led to the album being seen as the medium in which “serious” musicians would explore and develop their craft. The apparently disparate genres of blues, jazz, rock, folk and even world music were fused together by many diverse acts all of whom were eager to be regarded as “progressive” in their musical approach. The so-called “underground” audience eagerly consumed this music, which sat alongside the social changes that were also taking place.
