Rhino Records "Summer Of Love" Vinyl Reissues

Rhino Celebrates The 50th Anniversary Of The Cultural Phenomenon With Several Vinyl Re-Issues, Plus New Compilations From Grateful Dead, The Monkees, and more!


Check out this interview with keyboard wizard Derek Hilland on the Nothing Shocking Podcast. Derek has played with a lot of classic rock and heavy metal bands over the years including White Snake and Iron Butterfly. Give it a listen below.



Here is a little taste of some records that we are really digging over here at the shop so far this year.  A few reissues including the album Pops De Vanguardia by the Paraguay psych weirdos Jodi and a solo album from Wally Tax who was in the Dutch group garage band The Outsiders. Wally's solo album "Love In" is a great mix of Leonard Cohen and dark hippy folk on bad acid. 

List: Ragged Records Favorite Albums Of 2016

2016 has been quite the bummer of a year for all kinds of reasons. We've seen some of the most well respected and talented musicians of our time pass away this cold and dark year BUT we here at Ragged have observed an insurgence of incredible new music. So 2016 hasn't been all that bad, I guess. Anyway here is a list of new releases, soundtracks, compilations and reissues that we have enjoyed, in no particular order, this year. We hope that you enjoy these titles as much as we did and don't forget to check out the Spotify Playlist below. 


October 17th is Cassette Store Day and we will be getting in a VERY limited supply of some very cool punk, indie and metal titles to celebrate the occasion. If you dig tapes you should pop on in before these are gone, they might not last long. Some of these releases are limited to only 200 copies! Here is a list of the tapes we will be recieving and some words from the Cassette Store Day website below.

"Cassette Store Day is back this autumn on October 17th with a day of global celebrations and more international partners than ever before. Founded by UK indie labels Suplex Cassettes, Kissability, and Sexbeat in 2013, last year’s Cassette Store Day saw prolific tape lovers Burger Records at the helm of US releases and events. This year they are joined by Rice is Nice in Australia, Arch Hill in New Zealand, andMansions and Millions in Germany. Co-founder Jen Long of Kissability said, “Cassette tapes aren’t just a format, they’re a culture, and cassette culture is as much about collaboration as doing it yourself. This year we’ve gone even further to try and include as many tape fans around the world. We want as many people as possible to be able to get involved and put out a tape, put on a gig or event, or get hold of that release they really want.” Burger Records add, “The snowball that is Cassette Store Day rolls into 2015 bigger, better and badder than ever before!!! When we’re done spreading the good word of our fave format no one will ever ask “why cassettes?” again!!! BURGER BELIEVE THAT!!!” Applications to be a part of Cassette Store Day will open for events, shops, and labels on July 11th and close on September 1st. It will be free to list your store or event, with a small admin fee of £5 (or relative amount outside the UK) for labels looking to list an official release. This year labels will also be able to sell their releases online on Cassette Store Day instead of having to wait a week after. Jen Long explained, “While we still want as many stores as possible involved, we felt there was too much burden on understaffed shops to order from the release list and smaller labels were being left out. We also felt that fans in more remote areas were excluded from the celebrations if they didn’t have a store in their area. Hopefully this way we can include everyone for the best Cassette Store Day yet.”
