East of Eden - East of Eden
(Harvest SHVL-792 UK-71 VG+ 350:-)

Formed in 1967, this versatile Bristol, England-based outfit's best known line-up comprised Dave Arbus (violin, saxophone, flute, trumpet), Ron Caines (alto saxophone), Geoff Nicholson (lead guitar), Andy Sneddon (bass) and Geoff Britton (drums, percussion). They offered an imaginative brew of progressive rock, jazz and neo-eastern predilections.

By the time this third album came out, little was left of the original spirit of East Of Eden and only violinist Dave Arbus of the original line-up. They had changed from one progressive label Deram to another Harvest, but also lost their experimental edge in the process. Still, the album has many charms and holds some interest for progheads.

Rare original UK vinyl, textured gatefold sleeve. Both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Eclection - Eclection
(Elektra EKS-74023 US-68 EX 275:-)

Formed in London in 1967, Eclection took both folk and rock influences to create their own unique sound (often drawing comparisons to Jefferson Airplane). Blessed by the superb vocalist Kerrilee Male, their sole, self-titled album is now regarded as a classic of the era and also as a starting point in the careers of Trevor Lucas and Gerry Conway (who formed Fotheringay with Sandy Denny in 1970).

Original US pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Ego on the Rocks - Acid in Wounderland
(Jupiter 6.24692 AP Ger-81 VG+ 350:-=

Jürgen Rosenthal and Detlef Schmidtchen were two ex-members of the most internationally successful Eloy incarnation (from "DAWN" through to "SILENT CRIES & MIGHTY ECHOES"). Their adventurous concept album covered a lot of ground, mixing synth music, electronic rock, sound collages, and even a touch of Heavy Metal rock in a similar way to Hawkwind of the period.

Original German pressing; the sleeve is Excellent - the vinyl is graded Very Good+.
Empire - Expensive Sound
(Dinosaur Discs D/E 001 UK-81 EX 450:-)

After leaving famed post-punk band Generation X, guitarist Bob "Derwood" Andrews and drummer Mark Laff formed Empire, along with bassist Simon Bernal. They released one single 'Hot Seat' and one album; 'Expensive Sound'. In the middle of the eighties, Empire became the prominent inspiration and a milestone for the D.C. post-punk Dischord scene. Artists like Henry Rollins and Fugazi expressed their admiration for the band and 'Expensive Sound' turned into a huge cult release.

Original UK pressing; The inner sleeve has a previous owners notation of playing time in ballpoint - the vinyl is graded EX.
