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.
Bauhaus - The Sky's Gone Out
(Beggars Banquet ‎BEGA-42 UK-82 300:-)

Bauhaus was one of the Founding Fathers of Goth rock, driven by moody post-punk dynamics and jagged guitar chords, plus the manic mysticism of singer Peter Murphy.

"The Sky’s Gone Out" is marked by sharp guitar lines from Daniel Ash and emotive vocal maneuverings from frontman Peter Murphy. Opening with a jittery, almost bouncy take on Brian Eno’s “Third Uncle,” it’s immediately clear that Bauhaus is going to be driving down some different avenues while at the same time being careful not to leave the neighborhood of darkness entirely.

The initial copies of "The Sky's Gone Out" contained an extra live album: "Press The Eject And Give Me The Tape".
Beatles - Beatles' First
(Polydor 236.201 UK-67 VG+ 500:-)

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.
Beatles - Con los Beatles
(Odeon URL-2096 Urg-7? SS 800:-)

This is the one that turned the world upside-down. Released as its creators evolved from pop group to phenomenon, WITH THE BEATLES both affirmed promise and proclaimed genius. A slew of memorable Lennon/McCartney compositions embraced pop at its most multi-faceted, robust, melancholic, excited, and wistful. Their grasp of melody and harmony startled, yet for every unusual chord sequence employed, the Beatles' vigor and sense of purpose remained true.

Uruguayan pale blue & white (?) Odeon label LP, housed in a unique black & white Beatles picture sleeve with Spanish song titles printed on the reverse. Still Sealed!
Beatles - Hey Jude
(Apple CPCS-106 UK-69 VG+ 1000:-)

"Hey Jude" is one of the odder Beatles records released during the group's lifespan. Essentially a clearinghouse for singles that never appeared on album, the record relies heavily on songs released between 1968 and 1969.

Extremely rare EXPORT ONLY pressing with the label listing 'Revolutions' & 'Paper Back Writer' on the A-side label, fully laminated picture sleeve. The laminate is the 'floating' type that does not extend to the edges at the back - as a consequence there is a degree of edge scuffing evident as well as some light laminate creasing. The vinyl is graded VG+ with just a few light surface scuffs to show for all its years in the wild. A rarely seen great condition variant at an advantageous price!
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.

2LP Picture Disc set. Recorded live in Adelaide, June 12, 1964 (A1-B2); Festival Hall, Melbourne, June 16, 1964 (B3-B8); Sydney Stadium, Sydney, June 18, 1964 (C1-D3, alternate source D4-D6).
Beatles - Rock n Roll Music
(Parlphone PCS-7191/2 UK-76 VG+ 300:-)

On toward the mid-'70s, it dawned on the powers-that-were at Capitol/EMI that millions of listeners had come of age since the breakup of the Beatles in 1970 and, thus, had never experienced the group except in a historical context. Given the title and focus of this 1976 2LP collection, a lot of the emphasis was on the group's pre-psychedelic period; it also emphasized -- more than anything seen from them since 1965 -- their joyous renditions of other songwriters' work, especially old rock & roll standards like "Long Tall Sally," "Slow Down," "Dizzie Miss Lizzie," "Twist & Shout," etc., which had been a significant part of their output before their in-house songwriting came to dominate their recordings.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyls are graded VG+.
Beatles - Rubber Soul
(Parlophone PCS-3075 UK-65 VG+ 1750:-)

A landmark leaping-off point for The Beatles – and a record that really paved the way for countless new ideas to come! The mix of catchy pop and freer ideas here is really wonderful – tunes that introduce a whole new mature world in mainstream music – yet manage to have all the catchy complexity of the earlier years too. Production, songwriting, and delivery is superb!

Original UK STEREO pressing with 'Gramophone Co' perimeter and 'Sold in UK' central label text, front laminated flipback picture sleeve. The sleeve has a previous owners name stamped on the back.
Bond, Graham - Holy Magick
(Vertigo 6360.021 UK-70 VG+ 1000:-)

By all accounts, Graham Bond got way too into the occult. Bond often claimed to be an illegitimate scion of the Great Beast himself, and Long John Baldry accused him of sacrificing his pet cat in a ritual.

The most noteworthy musical fruits of Bond's chaotic involvement with occultism are 1970's "Holy Magick" and '71's "We Put our Magick on You", both recorded with his then wife and fellow magick devotee Diane Stewart. Neither record should be regarded as a classic, yet they had a certain claustrophobic, doomed sensibility that makes them even now rather eerie.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
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 300:-)

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 - Lodger
(RCA Victor BOWLP1 UK-79 VG+ 275:-)

The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever!

Original UK pressing with 'No Sense Is Better... Than None At All' etchings in the run-outs, complete with illustrated lyric insert, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve.
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.
Budgie - In for the Kill!
(MCA MAPS-7413 Ger-74 VG+ 375:-)

Often thought of as a cross between Black Sabbath (due to their plodding, molten-heavy riffs) and Rush (due to their singer's high-pitched, Geddy Lee-esque wail), this Welsh metal outfit has influenced countless bands, despite enduring countless lineup shifts throughout their history.

Budgie's fourth release confirmed their consistent metal songwriting, featuring huge metal riffs courtesy of guitarist Tony Bourge and wailing vocals from bassist Burke Shelley.
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+.
Burdon & the Animals, Eric - Love Is
(MGM SE-4591 US-71 coh EX 350:-)

This double LP set was the last album by an Animals configuration until the original band did the obligatory reunion album some years later. An album filled with excess, bombast and extended tunes, and a great example of how the British invasion morphed into psychedelia and ultimately self-destructed. Highlights include their version of "River Deep, Mountain High", which is a great companion to Tina Turner's, and their loving Bee Gees tribute, "To Love Somebody".
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. Their biggest hit song in recent times, "England 5 - Germany 1", (based on the result of a World Cup Qualifying match in 2001), became a football anthem for England.
