Habeas Corpus - My Roots
(Anazitisi ARLP-80-31 Greece 2009 EX 350:-)

Habeas Corpus formed in Athens, Greece in 1977. Originally a trio of guitar-bass-drums and occasionally, at some live gigs, a quartet with the addition of a keybordist/guitarist. At the end of 1981, all three members participated to the foundation of the more well-known band, Syndromo and made an album for Vertigo in 1982.
Habeas Corpus music is instrumental (no vocals) and combines heavy progressive rock and jazz/fusion rock with classical and Greek traditional tinges all around. This release collects all their recorded material from 1980-82. A couple of the tracks are from a studio demo while the other 6 tracks are recorded "live". All tracks are unreleased and uncompiled.

From the original 2-track master tapes and fully licenced by Stavros Theodorakos. It will include a 20x20cm triptych (6 pages in total) with bio, photos and memorabilia and a big gig poster from their last appearance, early 1982. 180g vinyl, strictly limited to 150 hand-numbered copies (#99)!
Hank 3 ‎– Ghost To A Ghost / Guttertown
(Hank 3 Records ‎– H3 01 US-11 EX 275:-)

After nearly 15 years shackled to Curb Records, who clearly had no idea what to do with him and fought his restless spirit at every turn, Hank Williams III is a free agent and eager to make up for lost time.

"Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town" is one of three albums Hank3 released on the same day through his own label, and while the other two albums are devoted to Hank's hardcore rock & roll, the first half of this two-disc set is the most straightforward country set he's released since "Straight to Hell" in 2006. Of course, Hank3's idea of a straightforward country album isn't much like what anyone in Nashville has ever done...

First US pressing on transparent green vinyl in a three-way Gatefold sleeve.
Hapshash & the Coloured Coat - Western Flier
(Liberty LBS-83212-E UK-69 VG+ 500:-)

Hapshash & the Coloured Coat's second and final album was a much more conventional and organized affair than the relatively anarchic, free-form (read songless) structure of their debut. Because of that, some listeners might be inclined to dismiss it as a sellout of sorts. Most listeners, however, will find it far easier to bear than its predecessor, even if it does sound more like a collection of tracks by a few different bands rather than a unified work. The sleeve of this copy has a small tear on the back from a removed sticker; the vinyl is graded Very Good+.
Harper, Roy - Flashes from the Archives
(Awareness AWLD-1012 UK-89 EX 275:-)

At the time somewhat better known for its sleeve - a full-frontal nude photo of Roy Harper which supposedly incited a staff walkout at EMI's pressing plant - this 2LP set is in fact a solid live document. Unlike most live albums of the era, which seek to recreate an entire concert, these tracks were recorded on the road in a variety of halls over the course of a full year with Harper and the Intergalactic Elephant Band. The result is that each track is the best possible version of that song, giving the album a solidity and substance.

Originally released in 1974 on Harvest. Both sleeve and vinyls are graded EX.
Hell, Richard - R.I.P.
(ROIR A-134 US-84 EX 100:-)

This Richard Hell compilation was originally released in 1984 as a cassette-only release and was later re-released on CD (different cover, same track listing).

It collects a total of 14 tracks (most studio, some live) and serves as a solid anthology/greatest-hits compilation. The selections span his career from 1975-1984, from one of his first bands (the legendary Heartbreakers with Johnny Thunders) up until a later incarnation of the Voidoids. The sound quality is consistent for the most part, and the music is rough, raw, and rocking -- in other words, classic Richard Hell.
Hole - Ask for It
(Caroline CAROL1470-1 US-95 EX 275:-)

Throughout Hole's career, vocalist/guitarist Courtney Love's notorious public image has overshadowed her band's music. In their original incarnation, Hole was one of the noisiest, most abrasive alternative bands performing in the early '90s.

Scarce 1995 US limited edition 6-track PINK VINYL LP featuring Peel Session tracks from November 1991 and Live Versions recorded at The Whiskey in 1992.
Holland, Randy - Cat Mind
(Mother 1050 US-72 VG+ 275:-)

A lot of private press releases did not appear on commercial labels for good reason, but not this one. This is a very nice album, with some folk and country inflections, and a good loner vibe. It's not (contrary to some catalogues) psychedelic, but Holland's dark and somewhat snotty delivery and some smokin' guitar make it stand out from the pack.

Original US pressing.
Hollies - For Certain Because
(Parlphone PCS-7011 UK-66 VG+ 500:-)

The Hollies was formed in Manchester in the early 1960s. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the 1960s and early 1970s.

"For Certain Because" was their first album entirely composed of original material, and it echoed pop's increased sophistication with fuller, more adventurous arrangements and more personal, folk-rock-influenced compositions.

Rare 1966 UK STEREO pressing, with 'Sold In The UK' & 'Gramophone Co' credits on the black & yellow labels, front laminated internal pocket gatefold picture sleeve.
Holly, Buddy - Showcase
(MCA P-6215 Jap-84 EX 300:-)

The second of the posthumously overdubbed albums, Showcase presented a number of rock & roll cover songs performed by Buddy Holly, most of them recorded during his sessions in Nashville in 1956. It was not Holly at his best, though the performances were often spirited.

Japanese 12-track reissue of the original 1964 Coral 12-track vinyl LP. Issued in a great colour picture sleeve, complete with lyric insert and '30th Anniversary of Rock & Roll Series' obi-strip.
Hunger - Strictly from Hunger
(Akarma AK-045 Ita-99 EX 400:-)

Hunger! (originally from Portland, Oregon), were full-fledged members of the L.A. psych scene of the late-sixties, and despite their opening for top-shelf acts like the Doors and The Strawberry Alarm Clock, their one and only album did not make much of a splash at the time, and the band dissolved soon after its release. However, the album has since become one of the most collectible in its genre and upon listening one can see why. This rhythm-heavy Doors-influenced hard psych is frequently referred to as 'one of the best psychedelic albums of all time'! Band member Ed King went on to play with the Strawberry Alarm Clock and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Housed in a plain black box of quite thin cardboard with only a small sticker on the front, this box set couples both Akarma releases 'Strictly From Hunger!' (AK 045) on black vinyl and 'The Lost Album' (AK 045/2).
