Kilburn & the High Roads - Handsome
(Dawn DNLS-3065 UK-75 VG+ 375:-)

No band has ever sounded remotely like Kilburn & the High Roads. They were an oddity at the time, and they sound even stranger decades later, a glorious blend of distinctly British humor, freewheeling vaudevillian pop, musical theater, '50s rock & roll, jazz, and, of course, pub rock, which is the scene where they made their name. Even if you're very familiar with the wit and style of their leader, Ian Dury, through his solo recordings, the Kilburns' lone album will still sound a little strange since the alternately sly and brutal attack of the Blockheads isn't here -- in its place is a puffed-up, campy theatricality, complete with Rocky Horror-esque backing female vocals, that amazingly still feels punk, partially because of its sheer, unhinged, committed weirdness.

Original UK pressing on Dawn, fully laminated picture sleeve. The sleeve shows only a little light wear from storage; the vinyl is graded EX. Nowadays rarely seen!
Kinks - Face to Face
(Sanctuary 278311-1 UK-12 EX 350:-)

The album that ushered in a new era of Ray Davies' songwriting, 1966's FACE TO FACE finds Davies penning, for the first time, a series of vignettes in the style that would become a staple for the rest of his career. Songs such as "Dandy" (a hit for Herman's Hermits), with its concise portrait of a '60s swinger, are a world away from the raucous rock of early hits like "You Really Got Me." The folky, Indian-influenced "Fancy," which may or may not be a self-portrait, and "Rosie Won't You Please Come Home" (actually written about the Davies brothers' sister) are timeless, precisely crafted sketches, beyond musical fad or fashion, that still resound today.

Limited Record Store Day 2012 release of 500 copies; on BLUE VINYL, features both MONO and STEREO versions.
Kinks - Something Else
(Sanctuary 273214-8 UK-11 EX 350:-)

Wickedly clever British pop – plucked from our favorite period of this legendary British band! The record features the group hitting their songwriting stride – moving past the simple topics of earlier songs, into a flurry of snapshots of British life in the postwar years. Each song is a brilliant three minute ode to a certain aspect of life in England – served up with razor-sharp wit, and a creatively catchy approach to songwriting that few of the group's contemporaries could ever hope to match!

Limited Record Store Day 2012 release of 500 copies; on RED VINYL, features both MONO and STEREO versions.
Kiss - Alive
(Casablanca NBLP-7020-798 US-75 VG+ 300:-)

Rooted in the campy theatrics of Alice Cooper and the sleazy hard rock of glam rockers the New York Dolls, Kiss became a favorite of American teenagers in the '70s.

"Alive!" was the album that catapulted Kiss from cult attraction to mega-superstars! Culled from shows in Detroit, New Jersey, Iowa and Cleveland on the "Dressed to Kill" tour, the record really captures the band's live performance on record.

Original US pressing, with 8 page insert.
Kreator - Extreme Aggression
(Noise Intl N-0145-9 Ger-89 VG+ 275:-)

Formed in Essen, Germany in 1982, Kreator are arguably the most influential and successful European thrash metal band ever. Like many of their European speed metal brethren, Kreator fused Metallica's thrash innovations with Venom's proto-black metal imagery. Often referred to as one of the "Big 4" of Teutonic thrash metal, and they are often credited with helping pioneer death metal and black metal.

On their fourth album, a successful Kreator close the '80s by delivering their final thrash triumph. "Extreme Aggression" delivers great songs that are pulverizing and memorable with a first rate set of powerful riffs with metal groove and aggressive vocals.

Original German picture disc.
