Gabriel, Peter - Submerge
(Impossible Recordworks IMP2-22 US-78 EX 300:-)

As the leader of Genesis in the early '70s, Peter Gabriel helped move progressive rock to new levels of theatricality. He was no less ambitious as a solo artist, exploring darker, more cerebral territory, incorporating avant-garde, electronic, and worldbeat influences into his music.

Side 1-3: Recorded 1977 at the Roxy Theatre, Los Angeles

Side 4: Recorded 1978 at The Bottom Line, New York City.
Garnett, Gale - My Kind of Folk Songs
(RCA Victor LSP-2833 US-64 VG+ 275:-)

Gale Zoë Garnett was born in Auckland, New Zealand; her family moved to Canada when she was 11, and she made her public singing debut in 1960. In 1964, Garnett scored a Top Five pop hit with her original composition "We'll Sing in the Sunshine," and recorded her debut album, MY KIND OF FOLK SONGS, for RCA Victor.

Original US STEREO pressing on the black "Stereo Dynagroove" label.
Genesis - Foxtrot
(Charisma/Classic Records CAS-1058 US-01 EX 500:-)

Easily the most angular and eccentric Genesis album, FOXTROT is where Peter Gabriel's idiosyncratic lyricism bears full fruit. The album's centerpiece is the 23-minute epic "Supper's Ready," a prog-rock classic that moves through several sections, shifting tempo, mood, and tone colors as it weaves its rich, complex tale. This composition would become Genesis diehards' most beloved tune, known as a concert favorite for years. SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND may be the definitive Genesis album, but FOXTROT runs a close second, and is just as much of a gem in the '70s progressive rock crown.

Gore, Leslie - California Nights
(Mercury SR-61120 US-67 EX 300:-)

When Lesley Gore recorded "California Nights" in 1967, it had only been two years since her last big hit, but it felt like even longer due to all the shifting trends of the late '60s. Assisted by producers Bob Crewe and Quincy Jones, Gore dove right into the fashionable sounds of Los Angeles in 1967. It was hardly hippie and not quite psychedelic but those trippy sounds were certainly in the air and can be heard here via fuzz guitars, mind-bending echoes and whirling strings.

Original US Stereo issue on the Mercury label.
Grateful Dead - Wake of the Flood
(Line/Grateful Dead GDLP-4.00643 Ger-89 EX 275:-)

The Grateful Dead took a 3-year hiatus from the studio after cutting their iconic AMERICAN BEAUTY. When they returned, they made WAKE OF THE FLOOD, which finds the band at a transitional point between the country-folk influences of their earlier work and the art-rock adornments forthcoming on efforts like TERRAPIN STATION. The result is an album of finely crafted songs that bows to familiar roots conventions while exploring some intriguing new ground.

German pressing by Line Records on WHITE vinyl.
Greatest Show on Earth - The Going's Easy
(Harvest SHVL-783 UK-70 VG+ 800:-)

As had been the case with the Greatest Show on Earth's debut long-player, "Horizons" (1970), the follow-up, "The Going's Easy" (1970), made very little impact despite their originality and certainly better-than-average material. EMI Records subsidiary Harvest set out to manufacture a British version of Blood, Sweat & Tears or Chicago - both of whom successfully fused a brass and woodwind section into the framework of a rock & roll combo. After a less-than-stellar initial outing, GSOE returned to the drawing board and reconvened with a disc of longer and more jammed-out sides.

Original UK pressing with 'The Gramophone' perimeter text and no EMI logos, textured gatefold picture sleeve. The sleeve shows general wear - the vinyl is graded VG+.
Guns n Roses - Welcome to the Sessions
(Club 51 Record Co. GNR-05 US-89 VG+ 350:-)

At a time when pop was dominated by dance music and pop-metal, Guns n Roses brought raw, ugly rock & roll crashing back into the charts. They were not nice boys; nice boys don't play rock & roll. They were ugly, misogynistic, and violent; they were also funny, vulnerable, and occasionally sensitive, as their breakthrough hit, "Sweet Child O' Mine," showed.

2-LP Bootleg;
All songs recorded at the band's 1987 sessions.
