Saints - I'm Stranded
(EMI MID-166130 Aus-87 EX 275:-)

The Saints were to Australia what the Sex Pistols were to Britain and the Ramones to America. Picking up the germ planted by the defunct Stooges, MC5, Velvet Underground and New York Dolls, the Saints sparked the Far East punk rock movement.

Their debut LP was actually nothing but eight rough-and-raw demo tracks the band had no intention of releasing, plus the two sides of the much better, cleaner-sounding single. The heavy, buzzing racket on the eight demo tracks borders on unintelligible, they're so cheaply recorded, but nothing can stop a collection of cracklers this intense!

1987 Australian re-issue on the yellow EMI label.
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!
Simone, Nina - Nina Simore and Piano!
(RCA Victor LSP-4102 Aus-69 EX 300:-)

A strong back to basics session for Nina, one that featured her piano and vocals only, a very spare approach that was markedly different from her work a few years previously for other labels. Nina's tone on the piano is incredible – and she's working with some striking modern jazz changes that offset the folksiness of her vocals in a fantastic way, creating a sound that's a lot fuller than you'd expect!

Original Australian pressing; black/silver label.
Simple Minds - Selfluminous
(Mixeye 240-31984 EU-84 VG+ 300:-)

From their beginnings as a raw, glammed-up New Wave band in 1977 to their complex Alternative Rock of the present, Simple Minds has maintained a dramatic flair and a deep complexity in their constantly changing sound. Jim Kerr's vocals leap effortlessly from raw Punk raspiness to urgent emotional release while the rest of the band pits guitar distortion against saxophone leads and vaulting Gospel vocals against bubbling Synth Pop keyboards.

This 2LP set was recorded at Falkonerteatret, Copenhagen, on March 26th, 1984.
Springsteen, Bruce - Boston Hall 3-3-74
(New Jersey [none] Ger-86 EX 375:-)

This gig was recorded at the 750-seat Gaston Hall in Boston, on March 3, 1974. The 90-minute 2nd show was simulcast on WGTB-FM (the non-profit school station) and this 2LP set represents that entire 2nd show.

This show finds Ernest "Boom Boom" Carter at the drums; he joined the E-Street band after Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez was fired in February, 1974. The band also includes David Sancious on keyboards; he and Carter left that October to start the jazz fusion project Tone.
Springsteen, Bruce - Gold, Dust and Rock n Roll
([bootleg] SG3 Ita-86 EX 375:-)

The "Born in the USA Tour" was Springsteen's longest and most successful tour to date. It featured a physically transformed Springsteen; after two years of bodybuilding, the singer had bulked up considerably. The tour was the first since the 1974 portions of the "Born to Run" tours without guitarist Steven Van Zandt, who was replaced by Nils Lofgren.

This 3LP set was recorded at the first of two shows at Ulllevi Stadium in Gothenburg, on June 8, 1985. This is an Italian bootleg of the Swedish bootleg "The Clear Difference"; it comes with an 8 page booklet with pictures from the show.
Springsteen, Bruce - Honeymoon, vol 1 & 2
(Spacematic SM8596 Bel-85 EX 400:-)

The "Born in the USA Tour" was Springsteen's longest and most successful tour to date. It featured a physically transformed Springsteen; after two years of bodybuilding, the singer had bulked up considerably. The tour was the first since the 1974 portions of the "Born to Run" tours without guitarist Steven Van Zandt, who was replaced by Nils Lofgren.

This 4LP set was recorded at the second of two shows at Ulllevi Stadium in Gothenburg, on June 9, 1985. The set comes with a bonus single with songs from Newcastle, June 4 & 5.
Springsteen, Bruce - On Broadway
(Sony 19075904371 EU-19 EX 475:-)

SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY is a solo acoustic performance written and performed by Bruce Springsteen.

Based on his best-selling autobiography 'Born to Run,' SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY is a unique evening with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his very personal stories. In addition, the show features a special appearance by Patti Scialfa.
Springsteen, Bruce - Prisoner of Love
(Garden State [bootleg] EX 375:-)

The "Tunnel of Love Express" was designed to disorient Springsteen's audiences. A theatrical entrance began the show, a full horn section appeared, band members were rearranged from their customary positions, and on-stage spontaneity was kept to a minimum. Set lists were unusually static, and many of Springsteen's most popular concert numbers were omitted altogether. Instead, the shows featured Springsteen B-sides and outtakes as well as renditions of obscure genre songs by others.

4LP Set, recorded at the Capital Cetre, Landover, MD, on April 4, 1988.
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+.
Stems - At First Sight Violets are Blue
(White Label L38735 Aus-87 EX 375:-)

The Stems' debut sits comfortably in the pantheon of timeless Australian albums of the era. First single ‘At First Sight’ is a bona fide classic of Australian indie-pop and the subsequent singles ‘For Always’ and ‘Sad Girl’ cemented a truly engaging and high-quality album. The Stems, like their compatriots The Church, Hoodoo Gurus and The Go Betweens straddle a retro-jangle garage pop sound that relies on shimmering guitar and organ that is solidly held together by melodic and catchy hooks. This album is pure listening pleasure - and will delight all collectors and casual listeners alike.

Original Australian pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
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.
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.
