Paradise Lost - Draconian Times
(Music for Nations MFNP-184 UK-95 EX 500:-)

Paradise Lost's "Draconian Times" falls between stark, oppressive goth rock and crunching heavy metal. It's a bit more experimental than their earlier efforts, as it displays subtle industrial influences - there's the occasional barrage of samples - as well as more keyboards and a chorus, perhaps appropriately dubbed the "Dead Boys Choir." "Draconian Times" is intentionally unwelcoming music, but those who want to dwell deep inside its twisted corridors will find a few pleasures.

Limited Edition PICTURE DISC; presented in an individually numbered (#2658) stickered PVC sleeve.
Petty, Tom - Into the Great Wide Open
(MCA MCA-10317 Ger-91 EX 375:-)

Tom Petty once represented the new wave of pop in the late 70s. There was an edge of punkiness to his music and that has served him well throughout his career. This is a Jeff Lynne production, which would usually have had pundits making a heretic cross with their fingers. Fortunately, it is an excellent album of Petty songs played by the best support band in the world.

Original German 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.

Rare 70s UK fifth issue of the 1969 13-track stereo vinyl LP on the two EMI box logo label. Front laminated picture sleeve with East facing couple on the back cover. Both sleeve and vinyl are in Excellent condition, stunning copy - now harder to find than the original!
Pirates - Out of Their Skulls
(Warner K56411 UK-77 VG+ 375:-)

The death of frontman Johnny Kidd derailed the Pirates back in 1966, but the band's contributions to British rock were not forgotten, and their influence on punk-era pub rock bands like Dr. Feelgood encouraged the remaining players to re-form for this blistering comeback album, which pairs a raucous live set with six studio cuts, and if the new tunes don't match up to tough classics like "Please Don't Touch" and "Shakin' All Over," the band's uncompromising strength overrides any weaknesses.

Original UK pressing with Press Kit! The sleeve shows some minor creasing - the vinyl is graded EX.
Presley, Elvis - Burbank Sessions, vol 1
(Audifön Records AFNS 62768 Ger-78 300:-)

Here is Elvis, clothed in black leather and backed up by a live house band, in front of a real audience for two performances alone in the "boxing ring" stage. Elvis never looks more handsome, or seems more vibrant than when he taped his TV show. But the most glorious portions of the program, save the opening "Trouble/Guitar Man" and closing "If I Can Dream" segments, are the "sit down" shows. Director Steve Binder's idea to capture Elvis alone on stage is also great, but only due to Elvis' singing, which is magnificent. For whatever reason, guilt, anger or fear, Elvis invests several of these songs with an absolute fury. On the slower tunes there's a tenderness and a maturity, although his focus on ballads would reach its fruition in the early '70's.

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!
Preston, Billy - Most Exciting Organ Ever
(Sue ILP-935 UK-67 EX 600:-)

THE MOST EXCITING ORGAN EVER is the first album by Billy Preston. The fully instrumental album was released in 1965, several weeks before Preston's nineteenth birthday and was originally issued in very small quantities on the Vee Jay label in 1965 without much success.

Looking at the vinyl I would say that it has been played no more than a handful of times, remaining in Excellent condition; the sleeve has a previous owners name written on the back.
Preston, Billy - Wildest Organ in Town
(Capitol T-2532 UK-66 EX 375:-)

Preston was a prodigy on organ and piano, recording during the early '60s for Vee-Jay and touring with Little Richard. He was a loose-limbed regular on the mid-'60s ABC TV series Shindig, proving his talent as both vocalist and pianist, and he built an enviable reputation as a session musician, even backing the Beatles on their LET IT BE album.

This rare 12-track MONO vinyl features his characteristically free-wheeling organ sound backed by a smooth solid rhythm flying through the likes of "Uptight" and "Satisfaction"!
Proby, P.J. - Three Week Hero
(Liberty LDL-83219E UK-69 VG+ 500:-)

James Marcus Smith was an American singer born 6 November 1938, Houston, Texas. Although he was initially based in the US, he later moved to the UK and found more success there.

Rare 1969 UK 12-track vinyl LP also featuring Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant & John Bonham [Led Zeppelin], fully laminated pinched spine picture sleeve. Apart from a bit of laminate lift at the spine the sleeve is in wonderful condition - the vinyl has a few small marks and is rated Very Good+. A fantastic copy of the rarest Proby Liberty LP!
