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".

Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
(Harvest SHVL-781 UK-76 VG+ 300:-)

ATOM HEART MOTHER is the most impenetrable album Pink Floyd released while on Harvest, which also makes it one of the most interesting of the era. Emerging from the Syd Barrett-led 60ts phase – ATOM HEART MOTHER signalled the new more Prog sound to come - but in "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast" held onto the lunacy of old. And you have to give them credit for the wacky utterly unforgettable artwork – a lone moo-moo staring out at us from a field wondering what in God’s name is that man doing pointing a camera at my posterior when I’m just trying to graze some grass here? Curiouser and Curiouser...

3rd UK pressing with 'EMI Records' label perimeter text and boxed EMI logo, gatefold picture sleeve.
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 - 50 Years
(Not On Label 6PIC-LP-BOX601 Den-85 EX 400:-)

Elvis Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century. Commercially successful in many genres, including rock 'n' roll, pop and gospel, he is the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music with estimated record sales of more than a billion units worldwide.

Unofficial Danish limited edition 6 picture disc box set. 2000 (#0179) copies made.
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.
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!
