(Demos DEMOS-24 Den-75 VG+ 500:-)

Solo artist and activist Ben Jacobsen´s album " Bøsse" (Danish for fag) came out in 1975 with the first and only record solely devoted to the LGBT experience in Denmark.
It is an album that is influenced and rooted in the early Danish gay liberation movement. On "Bøsse" you´ll find jubilant, defiant, reflective and melancholic songs that capture a young gay mans life in the 1970´s.

Original Danish pressing with a 16page booklet. Both Sleeve and Viny are graded VG+.
Jarre, Jean-Michel - Planet Jarre
(Sony 90758-33831 EU-18 EX 700:-)

"Planet Jarre" is a compilation studio album celebrating 50 years in the music business. A total of 41 tracks have been hand-picked, remastered and retouched by Jarre himself.

Jean-Michel Jarre is a pioneer in the electronic, ambient and new-age genres. His first mainstream success was the 1976 album "Oxygène". More albums were to follow, but his 1979 concert served as a blueprint for his future performances around the world. Several of his albums have been released to coincide with large-scale outdoor events, and he is now perhaps as well-known as a performer as he is as a musician.

Jethro Tull - Stand Up
(Island ILPS-9103 Swe-69 VG+ 300:-)

Beautiful early work from Jethro Tull – a formative set that really has the group deepening both their themes and their music! There's still a bit of blues rock at the core – but also some richer, more lyrical modes too – and Ian Anderson does a perfect job of bridging both worlds with his sublime work on flute. The whole thing's great – a record that's ripe for rediscovery!

Original Swedish pressing, made for the Scandinavian market. Both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Joy Division - Closer
(Qwest 7599-25841 US-89 EX 275:-)

CLOSER is the second and final album by Joy Division, arguably the most influential U.K. band of their generation. Arriving just months after lead singer Ian Curtis' suicide, it stands as a fragile document of one man's despair, as much as a definitive statement by a band at the height of their powers. While Joy Division's much-lauded debut, UNKNOWN PLEASURES, demonstrated their transformation from shambolic punks into a tight, highly focused quartet, CLOSER cemented their status as musicians at the vanguard of modern rock. Introducing a more vibrant and expansive sound palette--adding mournful pianos and funereal strings--the album is a sprawling, poignant last chapter of a band that seemed, at the time, to have unlimited potential for greatness.

1989 US Qwest issue, with hand scratched matrices which read '1-25841-A-SR2 / 1-25841-B/SR1.
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
(Qwest 7599-25840 US-89 EX 275:-)

If UK punk was the outward expression of nihilism and youthful rebellion, the music of Joy Division signaled a sea change toward its bleaker, darker, more introspective side - in the process, giving birth to an influential, highly original sound that was to have recurring echoes in the subsequent goth, new wave, and post-punk movements. Their 1979 debut, UNKNOWN PLEASURES, is a landmark release in the history of modern music Being sui generis to the social and spiritual landscape of post-war England, the album is perhaps the most powerful and evocative statement of existential dread ever recorded.

1989 US Qwest issue, with hand scratched matrices which read '1-2584-A-SR1 / 1-25840-B/SR1.
