Banks. Peter - Two Sides of Peter Banks
(Sovereign SVNA-7256 UK-76 VG+ 375:-)

For "Two Sides of Peter Banks", the ex-guitarist from Yes gathered an impressive group of guest musicians, including Genesis' Phil Collins and Steve Hackett and King Crimson's John Wetton. Most importantly, the whole album was written and recorded with Netherlands guitarist Jan Akkerman.

The first six tracks make up a suite ranging from acoustic duets to full-blown instrumental progressive rock numbers that bear noticeable similarities with some material Steve Hackett would record for his first solo album.

Original UK pressing. The sleeve shows some ringwear; the vinyl is graded EX.
Beatles - Beatles
(Apple PCS-7067/8 UK-68 VG/VG+ 1000:-)

The Beatles at their late best – 1968's self-titled set, now immortalized as The White Album! The White Album capped offed a period of intense creativity for the band with a double that's as freewheeling as anything they'd ever release. It's got raw rockers with wry lyricism, tender acoustic balladry, psych blues jams and some flat out weird bits.

Original UK pressing complete with 4 photos and poster. The vinyls are graded VG/VG+, but plays without any problems.

Beatles - Help!
(Parlophone ‎PCS-3071 UK-66 VG+ 1000:-)

A great little record that's kind of a prequel for "Rubber Soul" – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that you always forget about, until you drop the needle and revel in its sweet blend of modes.

1966 2nd UK pressing with small solid "Stereo" on the front of sleeve. Previous owners sticker on the front.
Beatles - Help!
(Parlophone ‎PCS-3071 UK-69 VG+ 475:-)

A great little record that's kind of a prequel for "Rubber Soul" – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that you always forget about, until you drop the needle and revel in its sweet blend of modes.

1969 UK pressing with one EMI logo on labels; no "Stereo" on the front of sleeve.
Beatles - Let it Be
(Apple PCS-7096 UK-70 VG+ 600:-)

A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together! There's great hints here of the solo work to come – especially from George Harrison and John Lennon – and the Phil Spector production really helps open up a new sound for the group.

UK 2nd issue with the RED Apple logo on the back but without box and book.
Beatles - Live in Australia, 1964
(Crocodile BGLP-156 Ita-88 VG+ 400:-)

The Beatles' 1964 world tour was their first world tour, launched after their 1964 UK tour. They played played eight cities in Australia and New Zeeland between June 12 and June 30. It was followed by their subsequent US tour in August that year.

Beatles - Revolver
(Parlophone PCS-7009 UK-69 VG+ 600:-)

This is manys favorite Beatles album – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics of the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too!

Parlophone black/silver labels with one boxed EMI logo. This version has misprinted title "I got to get you into my life" on label.
Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
(Capitol SEAX-11840 US-78 EX 400:-)

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades!

1978 US limited edition Picture Disc, housed in a die-cut sleeve, still in the original custom stickered open shrink.
Beatles - The Beatles' First
(Polydor 236.201 UK-67 VG+ 375:-)

This album features the eight Hamburg recordings involving the Beatles plus four songs recorded by Tony Sheridan without the Beatles. While it appears that Polydor in U.K. initially planned on releasing "The Beatles First" in mono, the company ultimately decided to press the LP exclusively in stereo upon its release on the Polydor Special label. This album is a reissue of the eponymous German album which was released in April 1964 and imported to England.

This is the 1st variation which has “The Beatles” printed under each song on which they play.
Beck, Joe - Nature Boy
(Verve Forecast FTS-3081 US-69 VG+ 350:-)

Joe Beck is best known as a jazz guitarist but his debut album "Nature Boy" doesn't have much to do with jazz. Of course there are some jazzy influences here and there but the stylistic direction of this record is guitar driven psychedelic rock. Beck really offers some tremendous guitarwork here. Future Crazy Horse Danny Whitten handles the rhythm guitar.
Birthday Party - Prayers on Fire
(4AD ‎CAD-104 UK-81 VG+ 375:-)

The Birthday Party were one of the darkest and most challenging post-punk groups to emerge in the early '80s, creating bleak and noisy soundscapes that provided the perfect setting for vocalist Nick Cave's difficult, disturbing stories of religion, violence, and perversity. Under the direction of Cave and guitarist Rowland S. Howard, the band tore through reams of blues and rockabilly licks, spitting out hellacious feedback and noise at an unrelenting pace.

Black Sabbath - Past Lives
(Earmark ‎41045 EU-05 EX 800:-)

Black Sabbath kicked loose rocks that's still setting off avalanches of creativity across the musical landscape. Their phenomenal first four albums remain the clearest articulations of heavy metal vocabulary to date.

"Past Lives" is a great first start to bring the rarest live performances to the casual Black Sabbath fan without having to search all over to get the unaltered bootlegs of these four shows. It's worth it, quite enjoyable, and once again shows that when it came to playing live, nobody came close to the Sabbath!
Blue Cheer - BC #5: The Original Human Being
(Philips PHS-600.347 US-70 VG+ 350:-)

At one time, San Francisco's Blue Cheer was hyped as the loudest rock band on the planet. Rampant personnel changes stunted their progress but the band's albums remain essential listening for devotees of all music that is heavy.

On "The Original Human Being", Blue Cheer explores a more psychedelic and laid‑back rock and roll with horn sections on a few of the songs. This album also features a very unusual, and different, song for Blue Cheer: "Babaji (Twilight Raga)", which includes extensive use of sitar and synthesizer.
Bond, Grahame - Mighty Grahame Bond
(Pulsar AR-10606 US-69 VG+ 300:-)

In 1968 Graham Bond left Britain after the collapse of the Graham Bond Organisation to make two legendary albums the US. Both records saw Bond play all instruments (except drums) and contained material that featured jazz influences alongside emerging psychedelic and underground rock, laced with fine musicianship and mystical lyrics.

Original US pressing.
Boss Hog - Whiteout
(City Slang 20150-1 Ger-99 EX 275:-)

It's difficult to consider Boss Hog without invoking the name of Jon Spencer. Not only is the Blues Explosion leader a member of Boss Hog, but he's also married to Boss Hog leader Christina Martinez, so his overwrought post-modern downtown, white-boy blues-funk is always lurking just around the corner.

WHITEOUT finds Boss Hog completing its evolution from unlistenable squalls of white-boy (and -girl) blues to a more varied sound incorporating blues, electronic textures, and programmed beats. Its strongest moments are the ones in which Boss Hog does what it does best: strut, sneer, and groove.

Original German pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Bowie, David - Stage
(RCA Victor PL-02913 UK-78 EX 300:-)

Emerging from his self-imposed exile in Berlin, David Bowie assembled a new band and took to the road to promote his Berlin-recorded albums. "Stage" chronicles that 1977 tour, and captures Bowie at one of the most creative periods of his career. Bowie performs gripping versions of these challenging tunes, and guitarist Adrian Belew is especially good on this material.

1978 UK pressing, fully laminated gatefold picture sleeve.
Bown Set, Alan - Alan Bown!
(Deram SML-1049 UK-69 VG+ 600:-)

Alan Bown was a trumpet player whos
main interests were jazz and American rhythm & blues. His first group made it to the performing mecca of Hamburg, Germany, playing at venues such as the Star-Club and crossing paths with the Beatles, Tony Sheridan, etc. He formed the Alan Bown Set in 1964.

Buffalo Springfield - Expecting to Fly
(Atlantic 2464.012 UK-70 VG+ 300:-)

Buffalo Springfield's time was short - they formed in 1966 and split in 1968 - but their legacy was vast. Nominally a folk-rock band, Buffalo Springfield also showed a facility with country-rock, psychedelia, soul, and hard rock, all the while embracing the possibilities of the recording studios of Los Angeles.

1970 compilation on the plum/red Atlantic label '99' series, fully laminated picture sleeve with notes by John Peel printed on the reverse. Both sleeve and viny are graded VG+.
Business - 1980/81 (Official Bootleg)
(Syndicate SYN-LP2 UK-83 NM 300:-)

The Business are an English Oi!/Punk Rock band formed in 1979 in Lewisham, South London. Their album Suburban Rebels became influential in the Oi! movement.
