Lennon, John - Imagine
(Apple PAS-10004 UK-71
VG+ 475:-)

Not the out there primal scream of "Plastic Ono Band", and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon! The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the album are. It must be the most consistent of John's LPs post-Beatles, and it's just about as essential as they come.

Complete with poster, innersleeve and postcard.
Lennon, John - Rock n Roll
(EMI 855671-1 UK+97 EX 300:-)

In the five years following the break-up of the Beatles, John Lennon established himself as a critically and commercially successful solo artist in addition to dealing with a number of private and public tribulations. Lennon eventually released Rock 'n' Roll, a batch of covers ranging the gamut of early rock classics from the '50s and '60s. Lennon threw himself lovingly into this project that hearkened back to the simpler times of being a teenager smitten with the sounds of Chuck Berry and Little Richard (both of whom are represented on this record), light years away from any kind of political statements.

Released in 1997 with heavy quality sleeve and on 180gr Virgin Vinyl this is the 9th album in EMI's "Centenary" series. Most of these Centenary albums are collectible but since this was 1997 these albums came out in very limited quantities and are now not easy to track down. These will only go up in price in the years to come!
Litter - Emerge
(Probe CPLP-4504 US-69 VG+ 300:-)

The Litter's "Emerge" combines the sound of the Amboy Dukes with Blue Cheer while vocalist Mark Gallagher at times does his best to imitate Jack Bruce adding Cream to the band's list of textures.

Burt Bacharach and Hal David's "Little Red Book" gets torn apart in the translation and is lots of fun. Lead guitarist Ray Melina takes the band to the world of British rock with his "Breakfast at Gardenson's," the light feeling here a total about-face, a transition that complements the huge sound on most of the record.
Little Free Rock - Little Free Rock
(Transatlantic TRA-208 UK-69 VG+ 2250:-)

Though Little Free Rock were just one of a plethora of bands inspired by Cream and searching for their own style in the post-psychedelic landscape at the end of the ’60s, they approached their work with flair and energy.

They had more than a few interesting ideas and mixed that with the pile-driving approach they refined during their days labouring away on the gig circuit. Though some of the production techniques may have robbed the band of a little of their natural rawness, their skill and road-hardened toughness is clear to see.
Little Steven - Voice of America
(EMI America 1A-064-2401511 Hol-83 VG+ 275:-)

E-Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt left the band following the recording of "Born in the USA" to persue his own career. "Voice Of America" was his second album, after his prior release "Men Without Women", and he was again backed by the Disciples Of Soul. Van Zandt himself handled vocals and guitars, producing a straight-ahead rock record with punk underpinnings and strong percussive rhythms.

Original Dutch pressing. This copy has been signed by Steve van Zandt on the front cover and on the lyrics insert.
Love - Love
(Elektra EKS-74001 US-69 VG+ 375:-)

Although they never quite reached national or international fame, Love was extremely influential in California on artists such as Jimi Hendrix and the Doors.

Their eponymous debut album is the most rock-oriented. The strongly stereo-ized sound of this album features strummed, Byrds-like guitar chords in one channel with crisp, riff-fueled bass and drums rhythm in the other. It is all topped off with the muddy, emotional vocals of lead singer and chief songwriter Arthur Lee.

US 2nd pressing on the RED Elektra label. The sleeve has a cutout in the upper left corner.
Love - Out Here
(Blue Thumb BTS-9000 US-69 VG+ 600:-)

Although they never quite reached national or international fame, Love was extremely influential in California on artists such as Jimi Hendrix and the Doors.

Arthur Lee marked his departure from Elektra by jettisoning his old band line-up and putting out the only double-album in the Love discography.

'Out Here' is a sprawling, uneven work whose high points rank with anything from their Elektra discography, and whose low points descend to a level dependent upon your tolerance for blues-rock jams circa 1969! It's Love louder than you've ever heard them before, with the characteristic Arthur Lee whimsy intact!
Lynyrd Skynyrd - 100 Proof Blues
(Southbound SB-7376 [bootleg] VG+ 400:-)


Lynyrd Skynyrd epitomized 1970's Southern Rock. Just as famous for their reckless lifestyle as their three-guitar wail, the band did for the word "redneck" what Gangsta Rap bands would later do for the word "nigga" -- turned a derogatory slur into a badge of honor.
