San Ul Lin - same
(Dragon Records DRST-0100 Korea 1991 EX 500:-)

San ul Lim is a South Korean power trio rock band and is considered as one of the most influential figures in the Korean Rock scene. The musical experiments they tried varry from songs for children to progressive/psychedelic rock.

This 2-LP set on colored vinyl collects songs from their first 9 albums.
Saxon - Call to Arms
(UDR ‎UDR-0027 Ger-11 EX 500:-)

For much of the 2000s, a revitalized Saxon catered to accepting European power metal audiences with a traditionally rooted but thoroughly modern-sounding heavy metal production; but there's something different about the band's 19th studio album, 2011's CALL TO ARMS.

Simply put, it appears that Saxon have intentionally revised their recent recording habits and largely stripped down their sound; perhaps doing without an extra guitar track or four which would have beefed up the mix, and scaling down the remaining instrumentation accordingly, including Biff Byford's surprisingly in-your-face vocals. As a result, the songs hark to the band's seminal New Wave of British Heavy Metal years: they are refreshingly raw and direct, recklessly urgent in a proto- but not post-thrash kind of way, but all of it qualifies as compelling vintage nostalgia, nonetheless.

Original German pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Searchers - It's the Searchers
(Pye NPL-18092 UK-64 VG+ 275:-)

The Searchers were one of the most popular British Invasion bands in the mid 60's and this is perhaps their best studio album, with classic hits like "Needles and Pins" and "Don't throw Your Love away". It also features some of their best LP cuts, on which they applied their famed harmonies to American material that was both strong and obscure.

Original UK MONO pressing; the vinyl has a few superficial marks - the sleeve has a previous owners name on the back.
Sex Pistols - Live at the 100 Club
(Raven SP-6148 bootleg EX 300:-)

The Sex Pistols may have only been together for two years in the late '70s, but they changed the face of popular music. Through their raw, nihilistic singles and violent performances, the band revolutionized the idea of what rock & roll could be. In England, the group was considered dangerous to the very fabric of society and was banned across the country; in America, they didn't have the same impact, but countless bands in both countries were inspired by the sheer sonic force of their music, while countless others were inspired by their independent, do-it-yourself ethics.

Incorrectly states "Live at the 100 Club, London, Sep. 24, 1976" on front sleeve. Actually this is a live recording at the 76 Club, Burton upon Trent, Sep. 24, 1976.
Simon, Paul - Negotiations and Love Songs
(Warner Bros 925789-1 EU-88 SS 500:-)

In his career, Paul Simon has had an impeccable ability to bring together melody and lyric with various global styles, creating some of the smartest pop around. Ever since he left behind the rigid musical borders of Simon & Garfunkel's folk-rock, Simon has built upon that fertile base. And as NEGOTIATIONS AND LOVE SONGS, a Warner Brothers-era greatest hits compilation, clearly shows, Simon expanded his cultural horizons and sent his musical appetite into overdrive to separate his compositions from those of his contemporaries.

Rare promotional vinyl in a single pocket picture sleeve and housed in a custom title printed cloth sleeve which remains stitch sealed around the edges - an unusual promo rarity!
Small Faces - The Autumn Stone
(Immediate IMAL-01/02 UK-69 VG+ 500:-)

Small Faces were the best English band never to hit it big in America. Outside Europe, all anybody remembers them for is their sole hit, "Itchycoo Park," which was hardly representative of their psychedelic sound, much less their full musical range - but in England, Small Faces were one of the most extraordinary and successful bands of the mid-'60s, serious competitors to the Who and potential rivals to the Rolling Stones.

THE AUTUMN STONE is a mix of hit singles, from the Decca years and up through their final 45, "The Universal," plus three songs recorded live at Newcastle Town Hall in early 1968, a bunch of album tracks, and some unissued tracks from the tail end of their history, presumably intended for the never-finished third Immediate LP.

1969 UK 2LP set, gatefold picture sleeve. The sleeve (VG) has edge scuffing & paper loss - the vinyl is graded VG+.
Smashing Pumpkins - Adore
(Virgin/Caroline 2438-45879-1 USA 1998 SS 800:-)

Of all the major alternative rock bands of the early '90s, Smashing Pumpkins were the group least influenced by traditional underground rock. Lead guitarist/songwriter Billy Corgan fashioned an amalgam of progressive rock, heavy metal, goth rock, psychedelia, and dream pop, creating a layered, powerful sound driven by swirling, distorted guitars. Corgan was wise enough to exploit his angst-ridden lyrics, yet he never shied away from rock star posturing, even if he did cloak it in allegedly ironic gestures.

In the wake of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin's departure, the Pumpkins took a giant step away from the grunge-flavored, turbo-powered alt-rock anthems that made them famous. On Adore, Billy Corgan and company opt instead for a more scaled-down approach that relies heavily on acoustic instruments and ballads of love and longing.Corgan may still be expressing angst here, but he does it in an understated, romantic way, addressing matters of the heart with subtlety and maturity on tunes like "Shame" and "To Sheila."

Original 1998 US 15-track three-sided mono vinyl double LP, pressed for limited UK release, gatefold picture sleeve. This copy has remained factory sealed from new in the original custom stickered shrink.
Sonic Youth - Bad Moon Rising
(Homestead HMS-106 US-87 EX 300:-)

An album quite unlike any other in the colorful Sonic Youth canon, BAD MOON RISING captures the New York band in 1985 during its most morose phase, one that is quite forbidding yet fascinating all the same. The proper album is an eight-song tapestry of droning guitar feedback, distant clattering percussion, and dreamy vocal mumblings, all of it woven together by sullen interludes of ambient noise.

1987 2nd US pressing on the red Homestead label.
Both Sleeve and Vinyl are in Excellent condition!
Springsteen, Bruce - In Concert: Unplugged
(Columbia 473860-1 Hol-93 EX 1250:-)

Asked to perform on MTV UNPLUGGED, Bruce Springsteen, typically intractable, started out with an unreleased solo acoustic ditty, announced that the unplugged portion of the show was over and called out a full electric band to play the rest of the set. This isn't the E Street Band, but the session band he assembled to tour after releasing HUMAN TOUCH and LUCKY TOWN in 1992. The set is heavy with songs from those albums--vaguely optimistic tunes about love, babies, and the light of day that waits just around the bend even through the darkest night.

Dutch limited edition 13-track double live LP issued to coincide with his 1993 European Tour, housed in hype stickered picture sleeve with tour dates on the reverse, plus original lyric inners.
Squire - Official Fan Club Album
(Hi Lo SFC-1 UK-80 EX 350:-)

An incredibly hard to find relic of the mod revival years, a 13-track roundup of rarities that peaks, on side two, with a fiery live sequence that reminds listeners just how ill-suited many of these bands were to the studio environment — and just how readily Squire bucked that trend. Their natural habitat remained the sweat- and beer-soaked atmosphere of a tiny club packed with parkas and Union Jacks, and the seven live songs here are delivered with a frenzy that can readily be compared to a maniacal cross between vintage Jam and classic Kinks.
Standells - In Person at P.J.'s
(Liberty LST-7384 US-64 VG+ 400:-)

The Standells made number 11 in 1966 with "Dirty Water," an archetypal garage rock hit with its Stones-ish riff, lecherous vocal, and combination of raunchy guitar and organ. While they never again reached the Top 40, they cut a number of strong, similar tunes in the 1966-1967 era that have belatedly been recognized as '60s punk classics.

A year or two before they really hit upon the garage rock style for which they're most known, the Standells were a popular club band in Los Angeles, grinding out covers of recent hits. "In Person at PJ's" is a document of their live set at the time, the ten tracks devoted mostly to well-worn R&B/rock tunes of the era.

Original US pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Sterophonics - You gotta go There
(V2 VVR1021901 EU-03 EX 500:-)

Kelly Jones was still licking some serious wounds due to the breakup of his 12-year relationship with his girlfriend and a fallout with a best mate. The band's 2001 release, JUST ENOUGH EDUCATION TO PERFORM, briefly touched upon his broken heart; however, Jones' darkest period came later as the band played countless sold-out gigs across Europe throughout late 2001 and 2002.

Jones found himself personally and professionally isolated - emotionally distant from his bandmates and best friends, drummer Stuart Cable and bassist Richard Jones, and creatively exhausted. However the fire that had made this band a major force in the post-grunge English rock scene still burned. YOU GOTTA GO THERE TO COME BACK captures Jones' soulful journey, and the band's classic rowdy rock style is as sultry as ever.

2003 13-track vinyl 2-LP set, presented in a great gatefold picture sleeve, complete with picture inner sleeves.
Stewart, Al - Love Chronicles
(CBS 63460 UK-69 VG+ 275:-)

Scottish singer/songwriter Al Stewart has been an amazingly prolific and successful musician across 50 years, working in a dizzying array of stylistic modes and musical genres -- in other words, he's had a real career, and has done it without concerning himself too much about trends and the public taste

For his second album, Al Stewart forsook the orchestral arrangements of BEDSITTER IMAGES, teaming up with Fairport Convention and others for the rock-oriented LOVE CHRONICLES, which Melody Maker nominated as Folk LP of 1969. The album is enhanced by some effective use of electric guitar, courtesy of Richard Thompson and Jimmy Page.

UK first issue 6-track stereo LP, internal pocket gatefold picture sleeve with lyrics inside. The sleeve shows just a little light shelfwear with some light creasing - the vinyl is graded Very Good+. A nice copy!
Stone Country - same
(RCA Victor LSP-3958 Ger-68 EX 300:-)

Stone Country was psychedelic country-rock outfit led by gifted singer/songwriter and guitarist Steve Young. Young, who grew up in the south, moved to New York City in the early '60s, where he became affiliated with the burgeoning Greenwich Village folk music scene. He later moved to Los Angeles in 1964 and began working with Van Dyle Parks and Stephen Stills while still working his day job as a mailman. He formed Stone Country in 1967 and soon thereafter the band was signed to RCA Records.

Original German pressing on the black/silver RCA Victor label.
Stooges - Fun House
(Elektra 42.055 Fra-77 VG+ 300:-)

The second and arguably best Stooges album – and one of the most influential rock albums ever! On FUN HOUSE Iggy & the Ashetons took what essentially started as blues-based guitar skronk, set it on fire and shot it straight into the stratosphere. As if the instrumental maelstrom wasn't enough, Iggy's unhinged growl and manic energy brings a terrifying edge that seals the album's reputation in the rock pantheon. A free rock/noise masterpiece if there ever was one – so much better than any of the 80s/90s/00s followers/imitators could ever drum up!

French 1977 reissue with SACEM/SACD/SDRM/SGDL box (not present on previous French releases) on "butterfly" labels.
Small Warner logo on back sleeve.
Stranglers - Apollo Revisited
(Get Back GET121 Ita-04 EX 275:-)

The Stranglers formed in the southern England village of Chiddingfold in 1974, just as the established pub rock scene was dying and promoters were willing to give any unknown band a break, simply to try and establish a new hierarchy. Thus it was that as the first stirrings of punk began to make their own presence felt on the same circuit, the Stranglers were on board the bandwagon from the beginning.

This 2LP set captures the band at the legendary Glasgow Apollo during their LA FOLIE TOUR of November 1981, during the peak of their career.
