USED VINYL ALERT

Heading downstairs for this week's Used Vinyl Alert, you might want to write your name and number on your arm, because it's about to get extremely psychedelic down here. In addition to some big ones in the jazz, blues, soul, new wave, and electronic worlds, this week's collection goes very, very deep into the many heavy, heady worlds of psych.

Check out classics, cheap and rare alike, from names like Blue Cheer, Caravan, Fever Tree, Strawberry Alarm Clock, the Pretty Things, Nektar, Love, Canned Heat and the Electric Prunes, plus more obscurities from the Poppy Family, Crystal Mansion, the Zodiac, Ars Nova, Mount Rushmore, Neighbrhood Childr'n, the Bubble Puppy, the Troggs, Trapeze, Atlantis, Ayers Rock, Boomerang, Blues Image, the Section, Jane, Budgie, Blackpearl, the Creation, Clearlight, Myrrh, Camel, and the Nazz, and a whole lot more. That's the stuff, man.
Heavy hitters in the classic rock and pop worlds are here as well, including some collectible ones from Jimi Hendrix and the Kinks, plus greats from the Who, Elvis, Fleetwood Mac, Tim Buckley, Fairport Convention, Joni Mitchell, the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Tom Petty, Dr. John, Frank Zappa, and Harvey Mandel.
