Kelly & the Dots, Paul - Talk
(Mushroom L37512 Aus-81 EX 375:-)

Singer/songwriter Paul Kelly captures Australia in his songs the way Bruce Springsteen or the Kinks' Ray Davies have encapsulated their homelands, and he does it with the musical energy and diversity of Elvis Costello.

"Talk" was Kelly's debut album and was followed by "Manila" before Kelly disolved the Dots.

Original Australian pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
(Island ILPS-9111 UK-7? VG+ 700:-)

The group's definitive album, and one of the most daring debut albums ever recorded by anybody. Ian McDonald's Mellotron is the dominant instrument, along with his saxes and Fripp's guitar, making this a somewhat different-sounding record from everything else they ever did. And even though that Mellotron sound is muted and toned down compared to their concert work of the era, it is still fierce and overpowering, on an album highlighted by strong songwriting, the strongest singing of Greg Lake's entire career, and Fripp's guitar playing that strangely mixed elegant classical, Hendrix-like rock explosions, and jazz noodling.

1970 UK second pressing on the pink rim palm tree label, matt gatefold picture sleeve. The sleeve is graded VG+ - the vinyl is graded EX.
King Crimson - Lizard
(Island ILPS-9141 UK-70 VG+ 700:-)

LIZARD can be seen as the third album in the trilogy that makes up Crimson's first phase, which began with IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING. The musical and lyrical concepts are more complex than on the first two albums, the arrangements more elaborate. Pete Sinfield's lyrics, already full of surreal mystical imagery, changed by turns more inaccessible and slightly psychedelic. Horns play a much larger role on LIZARD, the horn section injecting some punch into the production, and Mel Collins' flute and sax emerging as an important solo voice.

Original UK pressing on the pink rim Island 'palm tree' label, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with A-2U/B-2U matrix. The sleeve has some creasing in the laminate and a very minor damage on the back; the label on Side 1 has a date written in the rim - a more than respectable copy of this classic!
King Crimson - Red
(Island ILPS-9308 Swe-74 EX 300:-)

One of the heaviest early King Crimson albums – a set that really has the group taking off even more than before – pushing the needles way into the red with their own sort of sonic intensity! The group's a trio this time around – with the legendary Robert Fripp on guitar, really carving out the sound with an edge that's incredibly sharp – plus the great John Wetton on vocals and bass, giving the group an unexpected sense of soul – and lots of mighty drums from Bill Bruford too!

Original Swedish pressing on the "pink rim" Island label; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
King Crimson - USA
(Polydor 25MM-0269 Jap-84 EX 250:-)

As Robert Fripp had done with King Crimson's first live LP, Earthbound (1972), USA (1974) is a single-disc concert package documenting the quartet during its most concurrent swing through North America. As with its predecessor, USA was also issued as a sonic cenotaph of the concurrently defunct Krim. So insistent that the band would not be resurrected, Fripp concluded the LP's liner notes at the time with another three-letter epitaph: "R.I.P."

1984 Japanese issue of the 1975 6-track vinyl LP complete with Japanese/lyric insert, picture sleeve & 'King Crimson #9' series discography obi-strip.
Kinks - Face to Face
(Sanctuary 278311-1 UK-12 EX 400:-)

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 500:-)

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 - Smashes, Trashes & Hits
(Mercury 836 887-1 US-88 VG+ 400:-)

This is an interesting compilation, in that it was put together in 1988, long after the band had unmasked and Ace Frehley and Peter Criss had departed. It's almost equally divided between '70s Kiss classics like "Love Gun" and "Calling Dr. Love" and later efforts.

US limited edition 15th Anniversary 15-track double-sided vinyl picture disc LP, one side has a superb picture of Gene, Paul, Bruce Kulick and Eric Carr and the other has the classic make up line up with Ace and Peter, housed in a gatefold picture sleeve which includes eight photos, discography, videography and bio-essay!
Kramer, Billy J - Billy J
(Regal REG-1057 UK-65 EX 350:-)

One of the most popular Merseybeat singers, Billy J Kramer (born Billy Ashton) was one of the most mild-mannered rockers of the entire British Invasion. He was gifted with several Lennon-McCartney songs in 1963 and 1964, several of which the Beatles never ended up recording.
