    Get your Ya Ya's Out' is one of the finest documents of a band at the top of its game ever recorded. Following the death of Brian Jones, and his replacement by Mick Taylor, the US tour that this comes from marked the beginning of a new era for the Stones, during which they created their best music. The appearance of Mick Taylor in the band gave it a...

    The first release on Bunny's Solomonic label was the reflective and ambitious 'Search For Love' credited to 'Heat, Air & Water'. Bunny sings this yearning song beautifully, the mournful horns play a variant on the traditional 'Waltzing Matilda' melody and an early incarnation of the I Threes provide the harmonious backing vocals.

    'Standard Coltrane' was recorded in a single session in July 1958 by John Coltrane with support by top musicians Wilbur Harden (trumpet), Red Garland (piano), Paul Chambers (bass)and Jimmy Cobb (drums). There are four long tracks (each between 6 and 10 minutes) mainly drawn from Broadway musicals, obscure enough so they are not recognisable to the average...

    This was among the last of Coltrane's Prestige albums to be issued. The saxophonist had stockpiled enough material for the label during his two year contract (the canny Bob Weinstock knew how to make a single session go a long way - witness his handling of Gene Ammons - and must have been delighted when his one-time signing made it big) and so his old...

    This record is quite simply genius. It will transform your opinions of the genre and make a lot of what you will have heard before seem very empty and under produced. Almost every track is a gem with catchy beats and brilliant lyrical freestyling. A must for any b-boy or girl
    This was recorded and released in Jamaica in 1970 so i would guess that chronologically it comes just before the amazing work they did with Lee "Scratch" Perry.
    Includes the MASSIVE  Let’s Start the Dance and loads of killer heavyweight funky disco tunes from the heaviest drummer in town.
    Back in 1949/50, Miles Davis and eight friends recorded 3 sessions. The results were released as singles, then collected together and released in 1957 as `Birth Of The Cool' under the name of Miles Davis. But the other names in the group should not be overlooked, they read like a who's who of 50's and 60's cool and freeform jazz, with people like Gerry...
