Callender, Bobby - The Way
(Mithra SAAB 931-4 US-72 VG+ 800:-)

During the late 60's, Bobby Callender was one of the most mythical figures in popular music. Conceptually his musical universe delivers all the originality of an artistic freedom, really awakened of alternative lifestyle, cross cultures and psychedelic "civilization".

The two albums he recorded under his name ("Rainbow" in 1968, "The Way" in 1971) are currently seen as the two logical sides of a grandiloquent project including numerous musicians from the jazz and raga scenes.

Original US pressing.
Carmen - Dancing on a Cold Wind
(Regal Zonophone SLRZ-1040 UK-74 VG+ 450:-)
If Dancing on a Cold Wind is not as strong as Carmen's previous album, it is mostly because the 24-minute suite "Rememberances (Recuerdos de Espana)" is not as tightly linked musically than the second half of Fandangos in Space. The fact that heartbreak and failed relationships provide the sole topic on this album also gives it redundant flavor. Still, this effort showcases the same elements that made the band's first LP an artistic success: sharp musicianship and the spellbinding blend of progressive rock and flamenco, although this time around the first influence is far more important than the second.

Original UK Vinyl; the sleeve shows some minor wear; the vinyl is in Excellent condition!
Clark, Sanford - Return of the Fool
(LHI Records S-12003 US-68 VG+ 300:-)

Sanford Clark found fleeting fame with his rendition of the Lee Hazlewood song "The Fool." With a vocal style that blended elements of Johnny Cash with Ricky Nelson, Clark released the song in 1956, and it eventually peaked in the Top Ten of the pop charts and in the Top 15 of the country charts -- his first and only hit.

In 1965, Clark recorded a new version of "The Fool" featuring Waylon Jennings on guitar. Lee Hazlewood signed Clark to his LHI label, where he made an album, "Return of the Fool", but it went nowhere, and by the early '70s Clark had had enough and joined the construction industry.
Costello, Elvis - Goodbye Cruel World
(F-Beat ZL-70317 Hol-84 VG+ 225:-)

If there was ever an album showing an artist in transition then this is it. Elvis was continuing his move from popular music star to deep thinking artist, but here he had a crisis of confidence writ large which was not surprising given his personal issues at that time, including a divorce.

Dutch pressing; this copy has been signed by Elvis on the front.
Cure - Disintegration
(Polygram 839353-1 EU-89 VG+ 375:-)

Going on almost 25 years together and almost as many lineup changes, the Cure have gone from being the closet secret of the goth crowd to popular acceptance to sold-out stadium tours with nary a break in quality.

Turning The Cure into one of the biggest bands on the planet, ‘Disintegration’ remains a mind-blowing and stunningly complete album. Thematically and sonically, the album was primarily a return to the dark, gloomy aesthetic The Cure had explored across their key early 80s titles, "Seventeen Seconds", "Faith", and "Pornography".
Cure - Three Imaginary Boys
(Fiction FIX-1 UK-79 VG+ 800:-)

Going on almost 25 years together and almost as many lineup changes, the Cure have gone from being the closet secret of the goth crowd to popular acceptance to sold-out stadium tours with nary a break in quality.

The Cure released their debut album in 1979, after rearranging their line-up with the sacking of Porl Thompson, giving birth to an unusual power trio. This line-up lasted only for their first album, making it unique in its essentially minimal sound.

UK pressing. The innersleeve has slight damage on the top-opening.
