Banks. Peter - Two Sides of Peter Banks
(Sovereign SVNA-7256 UK-76 VG+ 375:-)

For "Two Sides of Peter Banks", the ex-guitarist from Yes gathered an impressive group of guest musicians, including Genesis' Phil Collins and Steve Hackett and King Crimson's John Wetton. Most importantly, the whole album was written and recorded with Netherlands guitarist Jan Akkerman.

The first six tracks make up a suite ranging from acoustic duets to full-blown instrumental progressive rock numbers that bear noticeable similarities with some material Steve Hackett would record for his first solo album.

Original UK pressing. The sleeve shows some ringwear; the vinyl is graded EX.
Beatles - Beatles
(Apple PCS-7067/8 UK-68 VG+ 1500:-)

The Beatles at their late best! "The White Album" capped offed a period of intense creativity for the band with a double that's as freewheeling as anything they'd ever release. It's got raw rockers with wry lyricism, tender acoustic balladry, psych blues jams and some flat out weird bits. As was always the case, John's and Paul's songs cover the majority of the sides, but "The White Album" also features what's arguably George's most vital moment as a Beatle with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".

1968 UK pressing with "An EMI recording..." on Side 1 and 2 only; top-open with black inners, complete with poster and 4 photos.
Beatles - Help!
(Parlophone ‎PCS-3071 UK-69 VG+ 475:-)

A great little record that's kind of a prequel for "Rubber Soul" – filled with short, tuneful tracks that would flower more deeply on that later album – and often served up with a bit more wit and adult consciousness than in any of the group's earlier records! One of those records that you always forget about, until you drop the needle and revel in its sweet blend of modes.

1969 UK pressing with one EMI logo on labels; no "Stereo" on the front of sleeve.
Beatles - Live in Australia, 1964
(Crocodile BGLP-156 Ita-88 VG+ 400:-)

The Beatles' 1964 world tour was their first world tour, launched after their 1964 UK tour. They played played eight cities in Australia and New Zeeland between June 12 and June 30. It was followed by their subsequent US tour in August that year.

2LP Picture Disc set. Recorded live in Adelaide, June 12, 1964 (A1-B2); Festival Hall, Melbourne, June 16, 1964 (B3-B8); Sydney Stadium, Sydney, June 18, 1964 (C1-D3, alternate source D4-D6).
Beatles - Rubber Soul
(Parlophone PCS-3075 UK-65 VG+ 1250:-)

A landmark leaping-off point for The Beatles – and a record that really paved the way for countless new ideas to come! The mix of catchy pop and freer ideas here is really wonderful – tunes that introduce a whole new mature world in mainstream music – yet manage to have all the catchy complexity of the earlier years too. Production, songwriting, and delivery is superb!

Original UK STEREO pressing with 'Gramophone Co' perimeter and 'Sold in UK' central label text, front laminated flipback picture sleeve. The sleeve has a previous owners name stamped on the back.
Beatles - The Beatles' First
(Polydor 236.201 UK-67 VG+ 375:-)

This album features the eight Hamburg recordings involving the Beatles plus four songs recorded by Tony Sheridan without the Beatles. While it appears that Polydor in U.K. initially planned on releasing "The Beatles First" in mono, the company ultimately decided to press the LP exclusively in stereo upon its release on the Polydor Special label. This album is a reissue of the eponymous German album which was released in April 1964 and imported to England.

This is the 1st variation which has “The Beatles” printed under each song on which they play.
Birthday Party - Prayers on Fire
(4AD ‎CAD-104 UK-81 VG+ 375:-)

The Birthday Party were one of the darkest and most challenging post-punk groups to emerge in the early '80s, creating bleak and noisy soundscapes that provided the perfect setting for vocalist Nick Cave's difficult, disturbing stories of religion, violence, and perversity. Under the direction of Cave and guitarist Rowland S. Howard, the band tore through reams of blues and rockabilly licks, spitting out hellacious feedback and noise at an unrelenting pace.

Black Flag - Damaged
(SST/Unicorn 9502 US-82 VG+ 1000:-)

Black Flag was one of America's first hardcore punk bands. They emerged from Southern California to gain international prominence, touring enough to become a major attraction in virtually every city where a scene existed and undoubtedly inspiring others to get in the game.

1982 issue with re-cut lacquer, pressed at Rainbo Records, (identified by the matrices; S-9375, S-9376). Back cover without MCA Distribution logo.
Blue Cheer - BC #5: The Original Human Being
(Philips PHS-600.347 US-70 VG+ 350:-)

At one time, San Francisco's Blue Cheer was hyped as the loudest rock band on the planet. Rampant personnel changes stunted their progress but the band's albums remain essential listening for devotees of all music that is heavy.

On "The Original Human Being", Blue Cheer explores a more psychedelic and laid‑back rock and roll with horn sections on a few of the songs. This album also features a very unusual, and different, song for Blue Cheer: "Babaji (Twilight Raga)", which includes extensive use of sitar and synthesizer.
Bond, Grahame - Mighty Grahame Bond
(Pulsar AR-10606 US-69 VG+ 300:-)

In 1968 Graham Bond left Britain after the collapse of the Graham Bond Organisation to make two legendary albums the US. Both records saw Bond play all instruments (except drums) and contained material that featured jazz influences alongside emerging psychedelic and underground rock, laced with fine musicianship and mystical lyrics.

Original US pressing.
Boss Hog - Whiteout
(City Slang 20150-1 Ger-99 EX 275:-)

It's difficult to consider Boss Hog without invoking the name of Jon Spencer. Not only is the Blues Explosion leader a member of Boss Hog, but he's also married to Boss Hog leader Christina Martinez, so his overwrought post-modern downtown, white-boy blues-funk is always lurking just around the corner.

WHITEOUT finds Boss Hog completing its evolution from unlistenable squalls of white-boy (and -girl) blues to a more varied sound incorporating blues, electronic textures, and programmed beats. Its strongest moments are the ones in which Boss Hog does what it does best: strut, sneer, and groove.

Original German pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Bowie, David - Lodger
(RCA Victor BOWLP1 UK-79 VG+ 275:-)

The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever!

Original UK pressing with 'No Sense Is Better... Than None At All' etchings in the run-outs, complete with illustrated lyric insert, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve.
Bowie, David - Stage
(RCA Victor PL-02913 UK-78 EX 300:-)

Emerging from his self-imposed exile in Berlin, David Bowie assembled a new band and took to the road to promote his Berlin-recorded albums. "Stage" chronicles that 1977 tour, and captures Bowie at one of the most creative periods of his career. Bowie performs gripping versions of these challenging tunes, and guitarist Adrian Belew is especially good on this material.

1978 UK pressing, fully laminated gatefold picture sleeve.
Buffalo Springfield - Expecting to Fly
(Atlantic 2464.012 UK-70 VG+ 300:-)

Buffalo Springfield's time was short - they formed in 1966 and split in 1968 - but their legacy was vast. Nominally a folk-rock band, Buffalo Springfield also showed a facility with country-rock, psychedelia, soul, and hard rock, all the while embracing the possibilities of the recording studios of Los Angeles.

1970 compilation on the plum/red Atlantic label '99' series, fully laminated picture sleeve with notes by John Peel printed on the reverse. Both sleeve and viny are graded VG+.
Burdon & the Animals, Eric - Love Is
(MGM SE-4591 US-71 coh EX 350:-)

This double LP set was the last album by an Animals configuration until the original band did the obligatory reunion album some years later. An album filled with excess, bombast and extended tunes, and a great example of how the British invasion morphed into psychedelia and ultimately self-destructed. Highlights include their version of "River Deep, Mountain High", which is a great companion to Tina Turner's, and their loving Bee Gees tribute, "To Love Somebody".
Business - 1980/81 (Official Bootleg)
(Syndicate SYN-LP2 UK-83 NM 300:-)

The Business are an English Oi!/Punk Rock band formed in 1979 in Lewisham, South London. Their album Suburban Rebels became influential in the Oi! movement. Their biggest hit song in recent times, "England 5 - Germany 1", (based on the result of a World Cup Qualifying match in 2001), became a football anthem for England.
