999 - 999
(United Artists UAG-30199 UK-78 VG+ 275:-)

Despite having formed in 1976, 999 have only experienced two permanent changes to their original line-up and has continued to record and play live to the present day, leading AllMusic to describe the band as "one of the longest-lived groups of the punk era.

The blistering debut from Punk legends 999 is feisty and ferocious, yet laced with melodic hooks galore. It sparkles with Punk energy and sounds fresh no matter how many times you listen to it!
Nelson, Rick - Best Always
(Brunswick LAT-8615 UK-65 VG+ 300:-)

Eric Hilliard Nelson was a musician, songwriter and actor. From age eight he starred alongside his family in the radio and television series "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet". In 1957, he began a long and successful career as a popular recording artist. The expression "teen idol" was first coined to describe Nelson.
New York Dolls - Too Much, Too Soon
(Mercury 6338.498 UK-74 VG+ 400:-)

A seminal album from The New York Dolls – one that has the quintet really sharpening up their sound from before, but also laying the groundwork for other amazing New York music to come!

The Dolls are definitely focused on their groove here, and tie together strands of early rock and nascent rawness, all with a mode that seems to ignore any of the overindulgence of the past decade or so. Things are super tight – with a great verse/chorus/verse approach to the tunes.
Newbury, Mickey - Harlequin Melodies
(RCA Victor LSP-4043 US-68 VG+ 300:-)

Debut album by Texan singer/songwriter Mickey Newbury.

The music is firmly located in the late 1960s moody country folk pop style with southern soul influences.
Nice - Nice
(Immediate IMSP-026 UK-69 VG+ 300:-)

The Nice are most famous as the starting point for keyboard whiz Keith Emerson before he came to fame with ELP, and many among the cognoscenti insist that they were superior to those prog-rock giants.

Like ELP, the Nice was a power trio with the focus squarely on Emerson's virtuoso abilities, and it aimed at a similar fusion of rock and classical music.
However, as evidenced by THE NICE, its third album, the band had much more roughage in its sound. It incorporates a fair amount of hard-edged psychedelia into its style, and in the pre-synthesizer '60s, Emerson spends his time playing the Hendrix of the Hammond, coaxing all manner of ungodly sounds from it.
