Vintage drums and bass refills

I'd love to see some vintage drum sounds as a refill, not just all the compressed drum sounds that are done ad-nasuem, 70's tight funk etc, but drums suitable for those big Phil Spector etc soundscapes from the 60's, and of course Beatles, Stones (Gimme Shelter etc), James Brown classic era sounding drums, and so on.

Also some lo-fi effects would be a welcome addition to Reason, for both glitching and making more retro sounds (maybe a convolution speaker/mic emulation rack unit), or dedicated tape/tube emulator.

This is the sound I'd love to be able to reproduce in Reason/Record :

The Seeds - Can't seem to make you mine :

The Ronettes - Be My Baby :

The Beatles - Sgt Peppers Hearts Club Band Reprise :

Neil Young - Cinnamon Girl :

And a more modern attempt with great retro drums from Rialto - Monday Morning 5:19 :

What I really want to break away from is the highly compressed and scooped/hyped modern pop production sound on the drums and bass. I understand a lot of that is down to my own mixing and arrangement ability, however it would help a great deal to have some more great retro samples to help to this end. Some less forward sounding cymbals, more full kicks, toms that sound real rather than synth like etc.
