Damned - Damned Damned Damned
(Stiff SEEZ-1 UK-77 EX 800:-)

Released in early 1977, this was one of the first punk albums issued and it remains a certified punk classic which sounds as fresh and vital today as it did in 1977. The album blasts off with the searing "Neat Neat Neat," a raging slab of buzzsaw guitars, crashing drums, and the sneering vocals of Dave Vanian that ranks among the 20 best punk songs of the era.

Rare original UK pressing, housed in a fully laminated picture sleeve with Island logo on the reverse. An all-time classic punkrock record!
Davis Group, Spencer - 2nd Album
(Island SLP-1402 Swe-65 VG+ 400:-)

More Blues and soul from Britain's highly American influenced soulful blues band of sorts. Their first really big single, "Keep On Running" appears on this disc!

Original Swedish Vinyl, on the "2nd Pink" Island label.
Dee Jays - Haze
(Hep House HLP-02 Swe-67 VG 500:-)

Johnny Vallon & the Dee Jays formed in the late 1950s in London. Thanks to Roland Ferneborg (manager of The Spotnicks), they came to Sweden in 1963 for a two month tour and ended up staying for five years. In 1964, when Vallons had to move back to England, the band found a new vocalist and started performing as "The Deejays".

Original Swedish pressing. Both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG; the vinyl has an ugly mark on Track 1, Side 1, which, amazingly does not affect the playing!
Deep Purple - (purple passages)
(Warner P6319-20W Jap-74 VG+ 375:-)

Along with Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, Deep Purple are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although some band members believe that their music cannot be categorised as belonging to any one genre. They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as "the loudest pop group", and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

This 2LP set covers all the best songs from Deep Purple's first three albums with the original pre-Ian Gillan/Roger Glover version of the band.

1974 Japanese pressing complete with obi and insert.
Denny, Sandy - It's Sandy Denny
(Saga Eros SAGA-8153 UK-70 VG+ 275:-)

Sandy Denny was the penultimate goddess of British Folk. Whether she sang with the interestingly attired Fotheringay, the electric Fairport Convention, or a pre-prog version of the Strawbs, the late (and we do mean great) Denny possessed an absolutely unpolluted voice that sounded like it was never touched by smoke or drink. Her singing was like the touch of the fabled King Midas, turning everything she graced into gold. Her own songs balanced all the folkloric tones of yore and the fantastical renaissance images of Middle Earth with a grounded side that made her work relevant. In this balance Denny displayed a bittersweet earnestness that could make Joni Mitchell cry. She died in 1977 from critical injuries following a fall down a staircase.

Scarce UK vinyl; this was actually a slightly expanded version of her debut LP released in 1967, the front laminated sleeve shows some creasing - the vinyl is graded VG+.
Dio - Absolutely Live
(Picture Disc, Unofficial Release EX 375:-)

Dio was a heavy metal band formed by singer Ronnie James Dio and drummer Vinny Appice in 1982 following their depature from Black Sabbath. Although Ronnie claimed that his intention was to form a band and not a solo project, he remained the only continuous member and the prime creative force in the band throughout its lifespan.

Recorded live at Draken, Stockholm, Sweden on November 17th, 1983.
Doors - Full Circle
(Elektra EKS-75038 US-72 VG+ 300:-)

"Full Cirlce" is the last project of original material to be issued under the Doors moniker. While there are a handful of undeniably remarkable cuts scattered throughout, Full Circle is increasingly sporadic and less focused than its predecessor, Other Voices. The cover has two extra pages attached, that you can cut and paste into a ''zoetrope''. The result of your industriousness will be a wheel that you can put on your turntable to produce the effect of a human being running through the circle of life.

The sleeve shows just some light edgescuffing & mild shelfwear with a cut-out in the lower left corner; the vinyl is in Excellent condition - A nice complete copy!
Dunbar, Aynsley - Dr Dunbars Prescription
(Sonet SLP-73 Swe-69 VG+ 600:-)

The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation's second album was much the same as their first, offering competent late-'60s British blues, given a slightly darker cast than was usual for the style via Victor Brox's somber vocals. Like their debut, it was dominated by original material, and as on its predecessor, the best of these tracks were the ones that utilized Brox's gloomy, almost gothic organ, if only because it made them stand out more among the company of the many similar bands recording in the prime of the British blues boom.

Original Swedish Vinyl; the sleeve has some minor marks and loss of lamination - the vinyl is graded Excellent!
Dunbar, Aynsley - Retaliation
(Liberty LBS-83154E UK-68 VG 500:-)

Of the numerous British blues-rock bands to spring up in the late '60s, the Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation was one of the better known, though solid reception on tours did not translate into heavy record sales. Musically, the group recalled John Mayall's Bluesbreakers during the 1966-1967 era that had produced the "A Hard Road" album, though with a somewhat more downbeat tone.
This first album from the group would prove the most successful of the four issued under the Retaliation banner.

Original UK pressing. The vinyl has some marks, but plays VG; the sleeve is graded VG+.
Dylan, Bob - A Thousand Miles Behind
(bootleg US-7? EX 500:-)

Here is a very early and hard to find piece from 1970. The label is blank, and no information is known as to the manufacturer. It was produced in the USA, most likely from the West coast. The first issue had a very small title stamp on the front of a blank white cover. No other information was included. Later editions had a 5x7 white or yellow insert pasted over the stamp. This is a copy of the later edition with the white insert.

Dylan, Bob - All Hallow's Eve and More
(AME Records (unofficial) Bel-85 VG+ 375:-)

This 1985 European 2 LP set was issued by AHE Records. It has a slick, nice looking black and white jacket, with two great Daniel Kramer photos. The back cover is the famous "Crossed Lights" taken at the New Haven show.

Dylan, Bob - Biograph
(CBS 66509 Hol-85 EX 400:-)

This was Columbia's first attempt to anthologize Dylan in the box-set format. Unlike the later BOOTLEG SERIES, though, BIOGRAPH does double duty as treasure trove of previously unreleased material and greatest hits package.

From "Tangled Up in Blue" to "I Want You," most of Dylan's FM radio staples are here, painting a clear historical picture of both his development as an artist and his transformation from rabble-rousing underdog to popular culture icon.

5-LP Box Set, including a 36 page booklet with interviews and notes by Bob and a 12 page booklet with notes on each song.
Dylan, Bob - Bootleg Series 1-3
(Columbia 889853-63341 EU-17 EX 700:-)

Bob Dylan proved to be not only one of the most bootlegged of 20th Century performers, but also one of the first (GREAT WHITE WONDER was one of the releases that turned bootlegging from a pastime into an industry).

Over the years, Dylan's legions of fans rabidly traded recordings of live shows, out-takes, demos and other rare material. THE BOOTLEG SERIES attempts to supply the definitive collection of what had been bootlegged material. Its 5 LP's move along chronologically, spanning the length of Dylan's career and providing candid, previously verboten glimpses into his creative process, and consequently, his musical genius.

2017 re-issue 5LP Box Set with a 12" x 12" booklet.
Dylan, Bob - Extra
(Colucia KC-846910 EU-84 VG+ 350:-)

In the late spring of 1984 Bob Dylan set out on a twenty-seven date European tour, playing some of the biggest and best known European music venues. His band included ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor on guitar, ex-Faces' keyboard player Ian McLagan, drummer Colin Allen and bassist Greg Sutton. Opening act was Santana.

This 3LP set was recorded at Ullevi Stadium, Gothenburg, on June 9.
Dylan, Bob - Good as I been to You
(Columbia ‎COL-472710-1 Hol-92 EX 500:-)

This 1992 release was Dylan's first solo acoustic release since his early-'60s folkie period. By the early '90s, the archetypal song poet had gone down so many wrong compositional roads he rightly decided it was time to take a break from songwriting.

Focusing on traditional folk songs (and recorded live in the studio in one take) - Dylan reinvents his Guthrie-derived '60s folk style, using the age and wisdom inherent in his raspy voice to invest these songs with new life.

Original Dutch pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Dylan, Bob - Great White Wonder
(Unofficial BD-LP101/2 Swe-69 VG+ 600:-)

One of the most famous bootlegs of all time. This is the first bootleg ever to be produced in the rock-and-roll era.

The 2LP set was supposedly composed of mostly unheard songs recorded by Bob Dylan and members of the Hawks (or The Band). Other material included a never-before heard (by the masses) version of Dylan’s tune “The Mighty Quinn” and a couple other songs in previously non-recorded versions.
Dylan, Bob - In the Garden
unofficial Ger-86 VG+ 275:-)

The "Shot of Love"tour started on June 10, 1981 in Chicago, Illinois. Dylan performed a further three concerts in the United States before travelling to Europe. The European leg of the tour started on June 21 in Toulouse in France and consisted of twenty three concerts, the largest number of concerts taking place in England where eight shows were performed. The European tour ended in tragedy in Avignon, France where a member of the crowd fell into the electric cables before the first song and caused total power loss. Dylan and the band improvised an unplugged instrumental until the power was restored and ‘Saved’ was started from the beginning. In the accident two people were killed, but the show went ahead despite the incident. Dylan returned to the United States in October to perform twenty three concerts there.

This 2LP set was recoreded at The Summit in Houston on November 12, 1981.
Dylan, Bob - Isle of Wight
(bootleg EX 300:-)

Bob Dylan had been little heard of since his allegedly near-fatal motorcycle accident in July 1966. Shunning the Woodstock Festival, held near his home in upstate New York, Dylan was initially reluctant to perform his comeback show on the little-known Isle of Wight. After weeks of negotiations, the Foulk brothers showed him a short film of the island's cultural and literary heritage; this appealed to Dylan's artistic sensibilities, as he was enthusiastic about combining a family holiday with a live performance in Tennyson country.

Unofficial release; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.

Dylan, Bob - Life Sentence
(Audifön RZ-004 US-78 VG+ 300:-)

In 1978, Dylan embarked on a year-long world tour, performing 114 shows in Asia, Oceania, North America and Europe. For the tour, Dylan assembled an eight piece band, and was also accompanied by three backing singers. It was during the later stages of this tour that Dylan experienced a "born-again" conversion to Christianity, which would become the overriding thematic preoccupation in his music for the next couple of years, such as on the albums "Slow Train Coming" (1979) and "Saved" (1980).

This 2LP set was recorded at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles on June 2, 1978.
Dylan, Bob - Live at the Royal Albert Hall
(Chance ZM-66 US-88 VG+ 300:-)

The "Royal Albert Hall" bootleg was actually recorded at the Manchester Free Trade Hall during Dylan's world tour in 1966. Extensively bootlegged for decades, it is an important document in the development of popular music during the 1960s.

The setlist consisted of two parts, with the first half of the concert being Dylan alone on stage performing an entirely acoustic set of songs, while the second half of the concert has Dylan playing an "electric" set of songs alongside his band the Hawks. The first half of the concert was greeted warmly by the audience, while the second half was highly criticized, with heckling going on before and after each song.

Unoffical US issue; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Dylan, Bob - Live in Scandinavia 1987
(Colucia KC-87925 Swe-88 EX 500:-)

On the 1987 "Temples in Flames Tour", Dylan was supported by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The tour started with two concerts in Israel and covered various European countries, culminating in four concerts at Wembley Arena in London, England. Roger McGuinn was the opening act for this tour (and was also supported by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers).

This 3LP set contains material from Gothenburg, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki. It was manufactured by what later became the Crystal Cat label. Limited edition of 750 copies, approximately 400 of these were seized and destroyed by the authorities.

A very early recording from May 1961.
Dylan, Bob - Stars of '66, vol 2
(GWW 662 Ger-86 EX 300:-)

Dylan's 1966 World Tour was notable as the first tour--actually a continuation of his late 1965 U.S. tour--where Dylan employed an electric band backing him, following his "going electric" at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. The musicians Dylan employed as his backing band were known as The Hawks; they subsequently became famous as The Band. Because Dylan was now playing "electric", he was being constantly heckled by folkniks or angry fans throughout the second, electric half of a concert.

This 2-LP set on colored vinyl was recorded at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on May 27, 1966.
Dylan, Bob - Stealin'
(bootleg Swe-70 EX 500:-)

This 1969 release is among the first bootlegs ever made in the Rock era. It remains one of the best as far as song selection and quality as well. It contains studio outtakes from The Times they are a-changing, Another Side of Bob Dylan, Bringing it all Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and four songs from the Minnesota Tapes. 1970 saw the release of this curious USA piece from an unknown Label. Because of the fact that it has no matrix, a blank label, and was issued in a blank white cover; it is referred to as the 'Blank Label' album. Pressed from it's own unique plates, it is slightly inferior to the Har-Kub release. Also, for whatever reason, 'Sitting on a barbed wire fence' has been omitted from side one. The LP was exported to Sweden where it was repackaged and released by Skand Industrioffset.
Dylan, Bob - Tangled Up in Blood
(Change BobBlood-1 US-88 VG+ 275:-)

Bob Dylan has undoubtedly made many great records in his time, but one of his most celebrated and beloved albums — and one of his most accessible — is "Blood on the Tracks".

The material on this album comes from an acetate of the original September 17, 1974 session at New York's A&R studios, except "Hurricane", which is a "Desire" session outtake July 30, 1975 CBS studios New York.
Dylan, Bob - The Basement Tapes, vol 1 & 2
(Surprise BD-1967-A/H EU-86 EX 800:-)

Bob Dylan used the alias Blind Boy Grunt for recordings he made for Broadside Records in 1962–63. The alias was revived by the compilers of this unauthorized release, which nowhere includes the name Dylan—though the extensive rear cover notes do refer several times to "Bob."

During his 1965-1966 world tour, Dylan was backed by a five-member rock group, The Hawks, who would later become famous as The Band. After Dylan was injured in a motorcycle accident in July 1966, four members of The Hawks came to Dylan's home in the Woodstock area to collaborate with him on music and film projects. While Dylan was out of the public's eye during an extended period of recovery in 1967, he and the members of The Hawks recorded more than 100 tracks together, incorporating original compositions, contemporary covers, and traditional material. While some of the basement songs are humorous, others dwell on nothingness, betrayal and a quest for salvation. In general, they possess a rootsy quality anticipating the Americana genre.

This 4-LP set consists of two volumes; both sleeves and vinyls are graded EX.
Dylan, Bob - What's happening here?
(Fan Club Intl EU-87 EX 275:-)

This 1987 European piece was produced by Fan Club International Associates. The source is an after-hours jam session with Bob Dylan and Etta James and her band. In the early hours of July 10th, 1986, Dylan joined Etta James and Shuggie Otis on stage at the Providence Marriott Hotel. You can almost hear Dylan smile as he kept repeating the same suggestive verse of “I’m A King Bee” (The one about “making honey”). The two last tracks, are Dylan and the Dead, at the Robert F Kennedy Stadium in Washington DC, July 7, 1986.
Dylan, Bob - Woodstock Revisited
(Trade Mark Of Quality [bootleg] US‎–86 EX 275:-)

The small town of Woodstock is a two-hour drive from New York, in the Catskill Mountains. It has been a retreat for artists since a Manchester mill-owner’s son created a colony there in 1902, inspired by the Arts and Craft movement. Woodstock’s wooded hills might have remained a secret hideaway for creative New Yorkers if Bob Dylan had been better at handling a motorbike. His 1966 accident near his Woodstock holiday home led to his near complete disappearance: in the next eight years, he would make just four live appearances.

For much of that time Dylan hunkered down in Woodstock, recording more than a hundred songs in demo form. As tranches of these songs began to appear, first in recordings by other artists, then as bootlegs, Dylan was transformed from a star into a legend.

The source for this TMOQ title (pressed on grey vinyl) is the legendary basement tapes recorded at Big Pink (the Woodstock, New York home owned by The Band) between April and October 1967.
