Oldfield, Mike - Ommadawn
(Simply Vinyl SVLP 0322 UK-01 EX 275:-)

OMMADAWN represented a departure from Mike Oldfield's previous solo, multi-tracked recording technique. Other musicians were involved, not just in the recording but in the composition and arrangement too. Influences from the folk music of Ireland, Africa and Eastern Europe can be clearly heard. Paddy Moloney of the Irish band the Chieftains contributed the distinctive uillean pipes. It was way ahead of its time, and confirms the 22-year-old Oldfield as not just one of the great classical guitarists in rock, but as one of its greatest composers.

Only Ones - Even Serpents Shine
(CBS 83451 UK-79 EX 300:-)

Although known to the world at large for their transcendent (and seemingly timeless) hit "Another Girl Another Planet," the Only Ones were also capable of hard-hitting album tracks like the ones found in abundance on their second release. Blending then-fashionable new wave signifiers with an old-fashioned, Doors-ian sense of drama and gloom, and enough rough edges to keep the punks interested, Peter Perrett and company crafted an excellent follow-up to their debut.

UK first issue vinyl, housed in a matt picture sleeve with gold-leaf relief with 'The Only Ones' on the front and a Chinese dragon on rear below the tracklist, appearing embossed.
Later editions omit these details on the cover.
Only Ones - Remains
(Closer CL-0012 Fra-84 VG+ 275:-)

Led by the raffish and slightly scuzzy romance-obsessed Peter Perrett, the Only Ones were one of the punk era's most underrated bands. Not as confrontational as the Sex Pistols, as politically indulgent as the Clash, or as stripped-down as the Ramones, the Only Ones played not-so-fast guitar rock that sounded deeply indebted to the New York Dolls and other mid-'70s proto-punks.

This French compilation contains demos and unfinished studio cuts. Comes with bonus 4-track EP.
