Don Costa


Snagged this one in the Village on a recent trip to NYC. Paid too much, and the guy behind the counter was of kind of a dick. Was it worth it?

Mark Turnbull


This one is a real curio. Couldn't find much out about young Mark, but he does sound a bit like Bob Dorough or maybe Tom Northcott. If either of those guys rings your bell, then this is for you. Update: check the comments for a link for current info about Mark.

Stoned Hair


With its canned audience sounds and songs that were not performed at Woodstock, this delicious slice of exploito pushes all the wrong buttons in just the right way. If anyone has any other Design Records titles they want to share, please put a link in the comments. They're all pretty bad in a good way.

South Central Avenue Municipal Blues Band


In the late '60s, everyone was getting in on the Bonnie and Clyde craze, even if it made no sense at all. Still, this is pretty funky little album.
