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+.
Entwistle, John - Whistle Rymes
(Track 2406.104 UK-72 VG+ 275:-)

John Alec Entwistle is probably the most influential bassist in rock music. Before Entwistle came along as a member of the Who, bassists seldom stood out for their playing and few casual listeners knew or cared what purpose the four-stringed instrument served - after he came along, everyone knew.

After making a surprisingly effective debut with "Smash Your Head Against the Wall", Entwistle consolidated his solo success with "Whistle Rymes". Like its predecessor, this album combines catchy, straightforward, pop-tinged rock with dark, often bitingly sarcastic lyrics.
Extreme ‎– III Sides To Every Story
(A&M 540006-1 Hol-92 EX 300:-)

Boston band Extreme possessed an eclectic range of musical influences and added a funky, chops-heavy element to their take on guitar-fueled hair metal.

Extreme's brand of hard rock balanced ambitious, progressive tendencies with catchy melodies owing more to the Beatles than anthemic arena rock; on "III Sides to Every Story", the former tends to dominate.

Original Dutch pressing.
