Pere Ubu - Dub Housing
(Chrysalis CHR-1207 UK-76 EX 275:-)

Pere Ubu emerged from the urban wastelands of mid-'70s Cleveland to impact the American underground for generations to come; led by hulking frontman David Thomas, whose absurdist warble and rapturously demented lyrics remained the band's creative focus throughout their long, convoluted career, Ubu's protean art punk sound harnessed self-destructing melodies, scattershot rhythms, and industrial-strength dissonance to capture the angst and chaos of their times with both apocalyptic fervor and surprising humanity.

THE MODERN DANCE was Pere Ubu's debut and 1978's great leap forward in the wake of punk and its lesser descendents. As such, DUB HOUSING, 10 months its junior, was always going to have a hard act to follow. At heart an avant-garde troupe with an overbearing sense of alienation about them, Ubu resisted the hooks that earned THE MODERN DANCE so many of its plaudits. DUB HOUSING rode along on Tony Maimone's fluid bass work on "I Will Wait" and "Navvy," periodically breaking down into ordered chaos. You can almost hear the fragile building bricks tumble on "Thriller!"

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Petty, Tom - Full Moon Fever
(MCA MCG-6034 UK-89 EX 300:-)

Ten years had passed since Petty's last solid outing ("Damn the Torpedoes" in 1979), and "Full Moon Fever" fully resuscitated the artist's career, which - some would say - had been losing steam. With the album's four major hits and rave reviews from the critics, Petty must have breathed a sigh of relief. He left the Heartbreakers behind, hooked up with producer Jeff Lynne, and rocked out with "Runnin' Down a Dream," got mellow and introspective on "Free Fallin'" and paid tribute (finally) to the Byrds with a cover of "Feel a Whole Lot Better".

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Pink Floyd - Soundtrack from the film "More"
(Columbia SCX-6346 UK-78 EX 400:-)

Commissioned as a soundtrack to the seldom-seen French hippie movie of the same name, More was a Pink Floyd album in its own right, reaching the Top Ten in Britain. The group's atmospheric music was a natural for movies, ranging from folky ballads to fierce electronic instrumentals to incidental mood music.

Elvis Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century.

Presley, Elvis - Raised on Rock
(RCA Victor APL-1-0388 UK-73 EX 1250:-)

RAISED ON ROCK, along with the album ELVIS, were both released after the massive success of ALOHA FROM HAWAII. The album was recorded at the Stax Studios in Memphis in July 1973 and Presley's home in Palm Springs, California in September 1973. Two songs from these sessions would be retained for release on the GOOD TIMES album the following spring. The album had a very different sound about it, more funky and soul-like that many of the previous efforts and was certainly a change in direction.

Because of a strike at the RCA plant only very few LPs were pressed in UK - the majority were imported from the USA and placed in UK sleeves. The sleeve of this copy has some minor ringwear; the vinyl is in Excellent condition!
Presley, Elvis - Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits
(RCA Victor LPM-6401 US-75 EX 300:-)

Elvis Presley was first on a lot of fronts -- not just in terms of chart action, but also the range and nature of his releases; he was the first rock & roller to generate a second volume of hits, and then a third, and a fourth, and a fifth. And in 1970, he was the first rock artist to earn a classical-style box set reissue of his hits.

"Worldwide 50 Gold Award Hits" is four full LPs packaged in a handsome set of a kind never before seen in rock music, much less rock & roll. What's more, the set actually showed some care in the production area as well, with all of the early single sides mastered in real mono, as opposed to the rechanneled stereo that had become standard on previous Elvis Presley compilations.
