Artists N-S
New Riders of the Purple Sage. This 1971 release includes backup work by Jerry Garcia, Spencer Dryden, Mickey Hart and Commander Cody.  Their brand of mellow country/rock is highlighted in "Glendale Train" and "Louisiana Lady"The Adventures of Panama Red is another good one from NRPS.
Around the Campfire - Peter, Paul and Mary.  Yup, they're still around and this new album has lots of their old hits and four new recordings. You can gather 'round the fire with your kids (grandkids?) and sing along to "Puff the Magic Dragon" and "Leavin' on a Jet Plane". 
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd.  This incredible album still gets lots of play on the airwaves. Their mastery of the electronic milieu is at its finest here.  Today, as in 1973 this recording has messages for us all. For a taste of the Floyd live, you must check out Pulse available on CD and Video (VHS and laserdisk). Some of the tunes here are better than the originals, and the video is outstanding.
The Forgotten Trail 1969-74 - Poco. This 2 CD set contains 38 cuts both live and studio and a 36 page book.  Poco is a great country rock band and this recording covers all their hits including "Kind Woman", "A Good Feeling to Know" and "Pickin' up the Pieces".
S.F. Sorrow - The Pretty Things  (1968), also; Emotions (1967). S.F Sorrow was the album that influenced The Who's 'Tommy'.  It is also one of Pete Townshends favorite albums. This group also features one of the Rolling Stones founders, Mick Taylor. Much of the Pretty Things early work sound much like the stones early stuff! - Matt
The Best of Procol Harum (1973). This album contains their hits "Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Conquistador".  Their latest release, Prodigal Stranger (1991) is much like their old stuff.
The Very Best of the Rascals. The Rascals had some big hits in the 60s and 70s including "Groovin'", "Good Lovin'" and "A Beautiful Morning", all of which are included here.
Flowers - The Rolling Stones (1967).  Digitally remastered, this early work with Brian Jones contains the hits "Ruby Tuesday", "Lady Jane" and "Mother's Little Helpers".  Another blast from the past is the 1970 Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out!, their best live album.
Hot Rocks 1964-1971 - The Rolling Stones.  This collection of hits from their early period has everything.  "Satisfaction", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Ruby Tuesday", "Sympathy for the Devil" and lots more!
Abraxas - Santana (1970) "Black Magic Woman", "Oye Como Va" and "Hope You're Feeling Better" are just some of the great cuts on this album.  Carlos Santana's guitar work is electric and the beat is sensual.  This mix of rockin' salsa is outstanding.
The Best of Santana. This new release showcases the bands forays into Latin/Jazz/Rock fusion. The early hits like "Oye Como Va" and"Black Magic Woman" are highlighted making this a great introduction to the band's tight funky sound.
Old Friends - Simon & Garfunkel. This 1997 release went back to the old masters and sounds great! All their hits are here in this three-CD set. If you don't already have their old albums, this is a good way to get caught up.
Greatest Hits - Sly and the Family Stone.  This collection of great music from 1970 makes you want to get up and "Dance to the Music!" 
Oar - Skip Spence  (1969) Skip Spence was the original drummer for The Jefferson Airplane and the founder of Moby Grape. Skip Spence was a visionary. Oar was released after Skip's departure from Moby Grape, and Belleview Mental Hospital, where he was held for six months after taking too much acid and trying to attack the Grape's drummer with an axe. All the songs on this album were written while Skip was institutionalized. The album is pretty much acoustic, with great songwriting (a great album to listen to while your depressed). Skips lyrics are rather dark and sometimes absurd. It is a good example of what was going on in Skip's head at the time he recorded this album. This album is considered a masterpiece, and Skip a visionary. - Matt
Twelve Dreams Of Dr Sardonicus. Spirit (1970). This is Spirit's best album, featuring "Nature's Way". This album also has great songwriting and great musicianship. This album is more expeimental and less structured than their previous, but also demonstrates the groups full creative potential! - Matt
20th Century Masters: The Best Of Steppenwolf  Hits include: "Born to Be Wild", "Magic Carpet Ride" and "It's Never Too Late".  Steppenwolf coined the term "Heavy Metal".
Tea for the Tillerman - Cat Stevens.  Cat Stevens' voice resonates somewhere deep within us.  This group of songs represents his best effort. They include "Father and Son", "Where do the Children Play", and "Hard Headed Woman"  His Classics, Volume 24: album has 20 great cuts including "Peacetrain" and "Moonshadow".
