X-Ray Spex - Germfree Adolescents
(EMI Intl INS-3023 UK-78 EX 500:-)

X-Ray Spex is notable for a number of reasons. Chiefly, it was one of the very few bands UK punk bands with female members. One of the group's distinguishing characteristics is their decidedly un-punk use of saxophones. Most importantly, though, X-Ray Spex's first effort is actually a good record! Fronted by Marion Elliot, who called herself Poly Styrene in those days, Spex managed to capture something that many punk rock bands missed; they always sounded like they were having a really great time.

Original UK pressing with 'Mastered At Abbey Road - Nick' etched in the run-out, fully laminated picture sleeve complete with thick card lyric inner.
Young, Neil - Forever Young
(Not On Label [none] EX 500:-)

Neil Young has never been one to eschew change, and this 1982 concert certainly found him in a transitional mode. Recently signed to Geffen Records, he had released TRANS, an album that, with its computerized tracks and electronically altered vocals, remains one of the oddest (and more underrated) in his entire catalog.

He was also touring with a band drawn from virtually all phases of his career, with bassist Bruce Palmer (from the Buffalo Springfield), drummer Ralph Molina (from Crazy Horse), guitarist Nils Lofgren, steel guitarist/keyboardist Ben Keith and others.

2LP set recorded live in Göteborg, Sweden, October 8, 1982. Limited Edition of 1000 [#604].
Young, Neil - My, Ma, Hey, Hey
(Lire 19761009 EU-8? EX 300:-)

When Neil Young’s debut album for his new label Geffen Records was first released in 1982, his audience didn’t quite know what to make of it. Basically, you either loved "Trans" or you hated it. Even today, the album remains the subject of fierce debate amongst Neil Young fans.

If Neil’s fans found "Trans" a bit perplexing, the tour of Europe was for many, a complete shock. Although much of the audience sat there on their hands, all stony faced during songs like “Computer Age” and “Transformer Man”, the setlist here is also a lot more varied than you might expect. You get everything from folkie Neil (“Old Man,” “The Needle And The Damage Done”) to the full-on rockers (“Cinnamon Girl,” “Hey, Hey, My My”).

This 2LP set was recorded at Isstadion, Stockholm, on October 9.
Young, Neil - Prisoners of Rock n Roll
(Royal Sound RS-012 EU-87 VG+ 600:-)

Neil Young's body of work ranks second only to Bob Dylan in terms of depth, and he was able to sustain his critical reputation, as well as record sales, for a longer period of time than Dylan, partially because of his willfully perverse work ethic. From the beginning of his solo career in the late '60s through to the 21st century, he never stopped writing, recording, and performing; his official catalog only represented a portion of his work, since he kept countless tapes of unreleased songs in his vaults.

This is a soundboard recording made during the 1986 North American tour at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, the same venue where LIVE RUST was recorded.

3-LP set on SPLATTERED VINYL. The sleeve shows some minor wear; the vinyls are graded EX.
Young, Neil - Ragged Glory
(Reprise 7599-26315-1 Ger-90 VG+ 400:-)

Having re-established his reputation with the musically varied, lyrically enraged "Freedom", Neil Young returned to being the lead guitarist of Crazy Horse for the musically homogenous, lyrically hopeful "Ragged Glory". The album's dominant sound was made by Young's noisy guitar, which bordered on and sometimes slipped over into distortion, while Crazy Horse kept up the songs' bright tempos. Despite the volume, the tunes were catchy, with strong melodies and good choruses, and they were given over to love, humor, and warm reminiscence.

Original German pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Young, Neil - Rock n Roll can never Die
(Rust Records RR 3582 EU-8? EX 500:-)

Neil Young has never been one to eschew change, and this 1982 concert certainly found him in a transitional mode. Recently signed to Geffen Records, he had released TRANS, an album that, with its computerized tracks and electronically altered vocals, remains one of the oddest (and more underrated) in his entire catalog.

He was also touring with a band drawn from virtually all phases of his career, with bassist Bruce Palmer (from the Buffalo Springfield), drummer Ralph Molina (from Crazy Horse), guitarist Nils Lofgren, steel guitarist/keyboardist Ben Keith and others.

2LP set recorded live in Göteborg, Sweden, October 8, 1982.
Young, Neil - Trans
(Geffen GHS-2018 US-82 EX 275:-)

"Trans" was a bold and bewildering move into the 'modern age' for Neil Young. While it's been called his 'Electronic' album, "Trans" doesn't transport Neil into Depeche Mode territory. Instead, it finds him experimenting with an array of computers, keyboards and vocoders along with his standard guitar/bass/drums backbone.

Original US pressing with lyric inner and stickered picture sleeve. This first press lists 'If You Got Love' on the sleeve and the inner, but the track is NOT on the album (there is a sticker on the back explaining its absence) - still in the original [opened] shrink!
Zappa, Frank - 200 Motels
(United Artists UDF-50003 UK-71 EX 300:-)

200 MOTELS is the soundtrack to Frank Zappa's wacky 1971 motion picture of the same name, which starred Ringo Starr and Keith Moon, among others. Although it enjoyed success as a "midnight movie" in the '70s/early '80s, 200 MOTELS is a difficult movie to comprehend, since the storyline is very abstract (some have hinted that it was made up on the spot!). But even when his music is difficult to understand, Zappa includes many interesting twists and turns, and the soundtrack for 200 MOTELS is no different.

Original UK 2LP set; comes with a superb 16-page full colour booklet packed with stills from the film (the poster though, is missing). The sleeve has shows minor wear; the vinyls are graded EX.
Zappa, Frank - Grand Wazoo Comic Book Extravaganza
(Mushroom FZ-0972 bootleg EX 375:-)

Mega rare double album capturing Frank Zappa with his 20-piece Grand Wazoo band/orchestra live at the Felt Forum in New York City on September 23rd 1972. Original 1975 issue on Mushroom Records (FZ0972) comes pressed on red vinyl (disc one) & white vinyl (disc two).
Zappa, Frank - Mystery Disc
(Barking Pumpkin BPR-8888-8 US-86 EX 300:-)

Between 1985 and 1987, Frank Zappa released a pair of mail-order vinyl box sets called Old Masters that contained remastered and restored versions of all of his albums between FREAK OUT! and ZOOT ALLURES. Each box contained an album of previously unreleased material called a "Mystery Disc."

Although he eventually reworked and remixed a handful of these cuts for subsequent releases, the majority of these recordings were not released for individual sale - this LP came in the "Old Masters, vol 2" box set. Tracks 1-6 are recorded at the Festival Hall show, London 1968.
Zappa, Frank - Pop History, vol 7
(Polydor 2335-025 Ger-71 VG+ 275:-)

Frank Zappa grew to be one of the most accomplished composers of the rock era, his music combining an understanding and appreciation for such contemporary classical figures as Igor Stravinsky, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Edgard Varèse. These influences, coupled with an affection for late '50s doo-wop, rock & roll and skillful guitar-heavy rock, dominated pop in the '70s. However, Zappa was also a keen satirist, whose reserves of scorn and parody seemed bottomless and whose wicked sense of humor and absurdity continued to delight his numerous fans - even when his lyrics crossed the broadest bounds of taste.

German only 20-track compilation double LP issued as part of the 'Pop History' series, unique front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with sleeve notes in English & German.
Zappa, Frank - Thing-Fish
(EMI 24.0294-9 Hol-84 EX 250:-)

Although this work carries the words "Original Cast Recording" it never supported a stage work or film. Originally conceived by Zappa as a Broadway musical the concept was first revealed, over numerous pictorial spreads, in 'Hustler' magazine in April '84 - the vinyl box-set following some 6 months later.

Dutch only CASSETTE edition in a 12" x 12" box with a 20 page lyric book, outlining scenes/acts, including 10 black & white photos. The cassette is STILL SEALED!
Zappa, Frank - Uncle Meat
(Reprise MS-2024 Ger-69 EX 400:-)

Just three years into their recording career, the Mothers of Invention released their second double album, Uncle Meat, which began life as the largely instrumental soundtrack to an unfinished film. It's essentially a transitional work, but it's a fascinating one, showcasing Frank Zappa's ever-increasing compositional dexterity and the Mothers' emerging instrumental prowess.

Original German issue on the orange/brown Reprise label.
Zappa, Frank - Worst of the Mothers
(MGM SE-4754 US-71 EX 375:-)

Frank Zappa grew to be one of the most accomplished composers of the rock era, his music combining an understanding and appreciation for such contemporary classical figures as Igor Stravinsky, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Edgard Varèse. These influences, coupled with an affection for late '50s doo-wop, rock & roll and skillful guitar-heavy rock, dominated pop in the '70s.
