At's - At's
(Rialto ALTO-104 UK-81 VG+ 275:-)

Stig Manley and Russel Crook started playing music together when they were at school in Bath. Both were talented guitarists and played in several bands before going on to form ‘The Heat’ in 1977. They soon discovered an American band of the same name so they were forced into changing the band name to the ‘AT’s’ in 1978. They were signed to Rialto Records in 79 and their only album was released in 1981.

Original UK pressing. The sleeve shows normal wear with a securety tag on the back - the vinyl is graded EX.
Auger & Julie Driscoll, Brian - Open
(Marmalade 607 002 UK-67 VG+ 500:-)

Great stuff – one of the amazing early albums from the team of Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger – kind of a next-generation to the Brit beat group sound of the mid 60s – one that moves beyond simple R&B modes, to bring in more sophisticated soul and jazz touches! Driscoll's vocals are amazing – some of the boldest belted out in the British scene at the time – and Auger's Hammond work really cooks throughout – at a level that easily makes him one of the best UK organists to hit the scene, amidst some very heady company in the 60s.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are granded Very Good+.
Auger & Julie Driscoll, Brian - Streetnoise, pt 1
(Marmalade 608.014 UK-69 VG+ 300:-)

The final collaboration between Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger's Trinity was 1969's "Streetnoise" -- and as a parting of the ways, it was Trinity's finest moment.

Originally a double album, this is was also issued as two separate volumes - this is Volume One.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Avantasia - The Flying Opera
(Back On Black ‎BOBV308LP UK-12 SS 275:-)

When singer Tobias Sammet started his Avantasia project in 2001, it was a mere studio project, but in 2008, following the release of third album "The Scarecrow", he managed to organize a world tour for his ambitious "metal opera." "The Flying Opera" documents this tour with live performances recorded at Wacken and Masters of Rock, with a set list that encompasses songs from "The Scarecrow" and its predecessors, "The Metal Opera" and "The Metal Opera, Volume 2".

Avett Brothers - I and Love and You
(American Recordings 88697-35099-1 US-09 EX 500:-)

The Avett Brothers continue to add elements of pop and hillbilly rock to their country/bluegrass foundation with a newfound emphasis on piano and nuanced arrangements.Working with a larger budget allows the group to add small flourishes -- a cello line here, a keyboard crescendo there -- but the resulting music is rarely grand, focusing on textures rather than sheer volume. Original US Vinyl; Includes code for free MP3 download of this album (U.S. only).
Ayers, Kevin - As Close as You Think
(Illuminated AMA-25 UK-86 EX 300:-)

Kevin Ayers was one of rock's oddest and more likable enigmas, even if he often seemed not to operate at his highest potential. Perhaps that's because he never seemed to have taken his music too seriously -- one of his essential charms and most aggravating limitations.

This 1986 album represents a bit of a recovery from his previous album (1983's "Diamond Jack and the Queen of Pain"). Kevin was back in the driver's seat, and the album is stronger than that predecessor, though it still sits squarely in the 1980s, and is a product of a more synthesized time. Much of the album is dominated by programmed keyboard, keyboard bass, and drums, but it isn't severe.

Scarce Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Ayers, Kevin - Confessions of Doctor Dream
(Island ILPS-9263 UK-74 EX 375:-)

Kevin Ayers was one of rock's oddest and more likable enigmas, even if he often seemed not to operate at his highest potential. Perhaps that's because he never seemed to have taken his music too seriously -- one of his essential charms and most aggravating limitations.

THE CONFESSIONS OF DR. DREAM is one of Kevin Ayers' best-regarded albums, and it marks his peak in terms of mainstream rock recognition. While it contains some almost glam-rock sounding riffs and accessible melodies, it's a dyed-in-the-wool art-rock classic full of lovable weirdness.

Original UK pressing; the sleeve shows very minor wear - the vinyl is graded EX.
Ayers, Kevin - Yes We Have No Mañanas
(Harvest SHSP-4057 UK-76 EX 275:-)

Kevin Ayers was one of rock's oddest and more likable enigmas, even if he often seemed not to operate at his highest potential. Perhaps that's because he never seemed to have taken his music too seriously -- one of his essential charms and most aggravating limitations.

Although the slick, nearly AOR-style production threatens to swamp the music on this album, the solid songwriting wins out in the end. Ayers has written several songs about achieving stardom; the pithy "Star" is a highlight. A cover of Marlene Dietrich's "Falling in Love with You" is this album's near-hit.

Original UK pressing complete with thick card lyric inner and textured picture sleeve.
Aztec Camera - New, Live and Rare
(WEA 18PI-2156 Jap-88 EX 275:-)

Aztec Camera was the brainchild of Roddy Frame, a Scottish songwriter and vocalist whose precocious talent -- he was still in his teens when the band cut their acclaimed debut album - earned the band a loyal cult following. With Frame's knack for catchy, upbeat melodies, Aztec Camera became a major critical favorite in the U.K.

Rare Japanese 7-track vinyl, featuring "Somewhere In My Heart - Alternate Mix" and "Everybody Is Number One - Boston '88 Version", plus four tracks recorded live in Bristol, Glasgow and Los Angeles between December 1987 and June '88, picture sleeve complete with Japanese text biography/lyric insert and narrow black & white obi-strip - hard to find on this format!
