Radio Birdman - Radio-Activity
(bootleg BTD-2001 EU-01 EX 275:-)

Although the best-known band of the early Australian punk scene of the late '70s was the Saints, the first band to wave the punk rock flag in the land down under was Radio Birdman. Formed by Australian émigré Deniz Tek (originally from Ann Arbor, MI) and Aussie surfer-turned-vocalist Rob Younger in 1974, Radio Birdman's approach to rock & roll was rooted in the high-energy, apocalyptic guitar rant of the Stooges and MC5, sprinkled liberally with a little East Coast underground hard rock.

Unofficial release;

Ramones - Beat from the Street
(Rock Around The World 109 US-7? EX 375:-)

The Ramones are the first punk rock band. By cutting rock & roll down to its bare essentials -- four chords; a simple, catchy melody; and irresistibly inane lyrics -- and speeding up the tempo considerably, the Ramones created something that was rooted in early '60s, pre-Beatles rock & roll and pop but sounded revolutionary.

This bootleg is shared with Martha Velez; the Ramones were recorded August 12, 1976 at the Roxy, Los Angeles, CA.

Original US pressing; the cue-sheet is missing.
Razorcuts - Storyteller
(Creation CRELP-026 UK-88 EX 300:-)

The Razorcuts were part of the legendary C-86 scene in the UK and went on to become one of the more influential indie pop groups of the 1980s.

Their first LP, "Storyteller", marries the DIY ethos of punk with those jangly guitars of sunny 60’s pop, making music on par with the best of ‘em.

Original UK pressing with Lyric insert.
Reed, Lou - Berlin
(RCA Victor APL1-0207 US-73 VG+ 250:-)

The "biggest" album of Lou Reed's career – in the grand sense – with epic production and a small army of superstar session players and production by spectacle specialist Bob Ezrin – but that's paired with arguably the darkest, gloomiest songcycle ever composed by Lou Reed! The dichotomy works, and Lou apparently agrees, having revisited the material in the mid aughties to great acclaim. Ultimately, this and the previous year's Transformer makes for one of the strangest and most incredible transitions over a short period of time in pop music history.

Original US pressing with 8 page insert.
Reed, Lou - Live Stockholm 1974
(Not On Label (none) Swe-74 VG+ 300:-)

The career of Lou Reed defied capsule summarization. Like David Bowie (whom Reed directly inspired in many ways), he made over his image many times, mutating from theatrical glam rocker to strung-out junkie to avant-garde noiseman to straight rock & roller to your average guy. Few would deny Reed's immense importance and considerable achievements.

1974's "Sally Can't Dance", was his most commercially successful album to date, reaching the Top Ten. On the following tour, Lou was at the height of his drug problems, but still managed to play over 25 venues, opening in Stockholm, Sweden in May and closing in Dayton, OH in October 1974.

Recorded live at the Concerthouse, Stockholm, Sweden, 14 May 1974.
Rolling Stones - A Bigger Bang
(Virgin ‎V3012 EU-05 EX 800:-)

Eight years separate 2005's "A Bigger Bang" from its 1997 predecessor, "Bridges to Babylon", the longest stretch of time between Stones albums in history. "A Bigger Bang" finds a reinvigorated band carrying its latter-day renaissance into the studio, turning in a sinewy, confident, satisfying album that's the band's best in years.

Original European pressing.
Rolling Stones - Big Hits
(Decca TXS.101 UK-66 VG+ 500:-)

Like its 1969 second volume THROUGH THE PAST DARKLY, this is a fine collection of '60s Stones classics, but it's a rather bluesier one. This is exemplified by such rootsy tracks as the redefined Buddy Holly tune "Not Fade Away" and the R&B bounce of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now." Not that the group's original songs were lacking in grit or attitude; the vituperative "Get Off My Cloud," delivered in Mick Jagger's best Sidcup dialect still sounds magnificent, as does Brian Jones's booming Vox pearl guitar on "The Last Time" and Keith Richards's opening chords to the aforementioned "Not Fade Away." This is a disc to be handed down to your children!

Rare 1966 first issue stereo compilation on the green unboxed Decca logo 'ffss' label, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with integral 8-page colour booklet. Both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Rolling Stones - Get Yer Ya Ya's Out
(Decca SKL-5065 UK-70 VG+ 275:-)

A landmark live set from the Rolling Stones – featuring material from their smoking tour of 1969! The set really captures the Stones at their most nasty – that great turning point when their edge was maybe sharpest of ever, right in the best Let It Bleed mode – but with even more raw energy from the live setting.

Original UK pressing with fully laminated sleeve.
Runaways - Runaways
(Mercury 9286-344 Fra-76 VG+ 300:-)

A glammy garage punk classic! Evil genius Kim Fowley + five hard-rockin' underage girls creates one of the most immediately catchy, damn near illicit razor-edged trash rock albums ever! Although it was a joke to the rock literati of the time (and may still be. . .stupid snobs) this album was integral to the coming punk revolution – particularly the unpretentious Ramones brand.

Original French pressing.
Rydell, Bobby - We got Love
(Cameo C-1006 US-6? NM 300:-)

Robert Lewis Ridarelli was born in Philadelphia. He won first prize on "Paul Whiteman's TV Teen Club" at age 8, and was a regular on that show for three years. After changing his last name to Rydell, Bobby played drums in Rocco and the Saints, a group that also featured Frankie Avalon on trumpet. Rydell signed with CAMEO-PARKWAY in early 1959, and eventually became that company's second most popular artist, behind Chubby Checker.

"We got Love" was Rydell's first release on Cameo; it contains his first big hit, "Kissin' Time".

Second US pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded NM.
