Early Dubstep record from the late 2000s. Pretty cool record.

a.k.a "Everybody Must Get Stoned!"

I assume it was named Rainy Day Women as so the radio stations wouldn't ban it. Really great song.

Agreed. $200 is a bit much. I'd say between $120-$150 is more reasonable for an original.

I can confirm this as well. I only bought the iTunes release, but I also bought the original 1976 copy for close to $200. The original sounds so much better. So much so I might plan to create my own "audiophile" remastered version to release on YouTube.

I was wondering what that was at the end. My copy also plays into the runout as well. I figured it was the inner groove loop, but that's weird.

Life is a minestrone while death is like a cold lasagna suspended in deep freeze.
I have to say this is one of the most underrated tracks from 10cc (especially in the US).

Such a weird record. I believe this was supposed to be FOR birds as the phrases keep repeating. I'd say this is a good record for those hip hop fans/turntablists looking for something to scratch with.

Peaked at #129 on the Hot 100 in 1967.

This version of "Snow Queen" is slightly different from the "Roger Nichols and His Small Circle of Friends" version in which the string orchestra on the track is absent. Brass can be heard a little bit, but no... See full review

Not only was this one big, but Into Battle With The Art Of Noise was also a big hit with the hip hop crowd. Both two great EPs.

This is a rip off of the 1981 Dave Stewart & Barbara Gaskin cover of the Leslie Gore original. Listen to those other ones instead of this one.

I loved that tv special growing up, and I think for the hardcore peanuts fan this is a must grab. It's got some catchy songs on it.

For me, this is Simon and Garfunkel's best album with Bookends being their second best. The songs are great from start to finish.

Interesting. I'm planning on getting this album to remaster it, but I might keep the 7" promo in mind.

This is one of Mort Garson's weirdest albums aside from his cult album Plantasia. Very interesting experience.

Recently listened to it for the first time, and I love it. It's good enough to make Wendy Carlos and Dick Hymen head for the hills.

Soul Sister charted at #133 on Hot 100.

such an underrated instrumental from 1966.

That noticed that too. I figured since LGBT topics were forbidden back in the 80s, they changed "ram right down your throat" to "make you wet" to appeal to airplay.

Same here. It's amazing what memes can do in revealing a once obscure country singer's discography.

Arguably the most underrated track by The Time. Good jam.

Only charted at #159 on Billboard 200 when the album came out in 1997. It is the first Ween album to make it on this chart.

This is easily one of the best albums. If songs like the title track, "Mutilated Lips", and their most popular track "Ocean... See full review

Really bizarre novelty record. I discovered it as it was listed as one of the worst songs ever recorded. I really like this single due to how odd it is. Outsider music at its finest.

Best known for being including in the first Shrek soundtrack. This song really is an underrated gem.

Only peaked at #99 on the Hot 100 in 2001.

While "Daydream Believer" is good, the song that should get the most attention is its B-side "Goin Down". That song is a classic.

This song is literally just one loop for the whole time. It's still a classic instrumental hip hop track nonetheless.

a.k.a Randy Scouse Git. This song was a big hit in the UK peaking at #2 and for good reason. I think this is easily one of the greatest Monkees songs of all time and ahead of its time. The Monkees were doing it before bands like the Pixies.

The very first compilation album of the Monkees ever released. This only peaked at #89 on Billboard 200 in 1969 due to their waning popularity at the time. This is a great one and a rather sought after album too. If you're a Monkees fan and find a... See full review

Great techno r&b song. Kinda reminds me of the band D-Train.

Well known for being sampled in the game Sonic CD (the japanese version I believe), this song still has it going on today. It helps that the two main guys from Parliament (George Clinton and Bootsy Collins) play on this track.

Such an underrated album. I fell in love with these guy recently as soon as I heard "Time Bomb", their biggest hit in the US (#83 on Hot 100). If you like that "Supertramp" like vibe in rock, you'll like this album.

I used to have this album when I had my older record collection. For a kids album, I think it's great. "Mousetrap" being my favorite track. Did well on Billboard back then at #35. Well deserved I think.

Such a "nasty" little song :) Prince really knocked it out of the park when he put together the female group with Vanity as the front woman.

If you've seen Beverly Hills Cop, you'll instantly recognize this song.

This song is fantastic. Easily one of Kid Creole's best songs. As a collector of 45s, get either the album "Wise Guy" or the 12 inch single instead. I don't think the edited version on the US 45 does the song any justice. This is a song to jam out to... See full review
