If - If 4
(United Artists UA-G29315 UK-72 300:-)

If was Great Britain's contribution to the jazz-rock movement begun and popularized in the late '60s/early '70s by Blood, Sweat & Tears and Chicago. Formed in 1969, If produced several albums noteworthy for placing jazz players in a pop/rock band context and producing a true fusion of the two genres without diluting the players' improvisational skills.

After their more commercial "If 3" this mainly live album follows the more jazz orientated meanderings of their earlier albums, but with a more heavy guitar sound, typified by the first track the amazing ten minute live instrumental "Sector 17", a real album highlight. As the band were essentially more at home playing this type of music live this makes sense, but still sounds great in the studio.

Illés ‎– Nehéz Az Út
(Qualiton LPX 17391 Hun-68 EX 275:-)

Illés were one of the most determinative rock/pop groups of Hungary. Due to their local impact, they were sometimes dubbed 'The Hungarian Beatles'... They combined folk music elements with the (then) latest pop/rock trends and succeeded to be unique with their sound.

Incredible String Band - Liquid Acrobat
(Island ILPS-9172 UK-71 VG+ 275:-)

The "Incredibles" mined the successful formula of past releases on "Liquid Acrobat", a sprawling, epic, and fanciful collection of folk musics from around the world, complete with Williamson's soulful brogue or Heron's bluesy warmth. Somehow, the ISB managed to combine numerous styles and add their own magic to the brew in order to make the sound uniquely their own.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Iron Maiden - Maiden's Back from Hell

One of the first groups to be classified as "British metal," Iron Maiden helped set the rock scene for the '80s and inspired generations of subsequent bands.
