East of Eden - East of Eden
(Harvest SHVL-792 UK-71 VG+ 350:-)

Formed in 1967, this versatile Bristol, England-based outfit's best known line-up comprised Dave Arbus (violin, saxophone, flute, trumpet), Ron Caines (alto saxophone), Geoff Nicholson (lead guitar), Andy Sneddon (bass) and Geoff Britton (drums, percussion). They offered an imaginative brew of progressive rock, jazz and neo-eastern predilections.

By the time this third album came out, little was left of the original spirit of East Of Eden and only violinist Dave Arbus of the original line-up. They had changed from one progressive label Deram to another Harvest, but also lost their experimental edge in the process. Still, the album has many charms and holds some interest for progheads.

Rare original UK vinyl, textured gatefold sleeve. Both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Ego on the Rocks - Acid in Wounderland
(Jupiter 6.24692 AP Ger-81 VG+ 350:-=

Jürgen Rosenthal and Detlef Schmidtchen were two ex-members of the most internationally successful Eloy incarnation (from "DAWN" through to "SILENT CRIES & MIGHTY ECHOES"). Their adventurous concept album covered a lot of ground, mixing synth music, electronic rock, sound collages, and even a touch of Heavy Metal rock in a similar way to Hawkwind of the period.

Original German pressing; the sleeve is Excellent - the vinyl is graded Very Good+.
Electric Light Orchestra - Out of the Blue
(Jet JT-LA823-L2 US-77 VG+ 400:-)

The crowning achievement of ELO at their best – a double-length set in which the genius of Jeff Lynne gets extra space to fully flower – and his mighty talents don't let up for a minute!

US pressing, complete with a Foldout Poster with Band Member Photos - Cardboard ELO Space Station Insert (the Individual Parts "punch-out" like Paper Dolls to Form a Cardboard Space Station with ELO Logo and Band Name on It).
Enid – In The Region of the Summer Stars
(Buk BULP-2014 UK-76 VG+ 300:-)

The Enid were formed around Robert John Godfrey (ex-Barclay James Harvest) and guitarists Stephen Stewart and Francis Lickerich in 1973.

Almost like a combination of classical and rock, the band combined vast orchestral movements, exclusively classical instrumentation, rigourous construction completely well-written and romantic rock music.
Eno, Brian - Another Green World
(Island ILPS-9351 UK-75 VG+ 800:-)

Brian Eno at the crux of his career – hanging perfectly between the guitar-heavy glam of earlier years, and the spacey electronics of later material – both of which he presents wonderfully on the record!

The album is one of his last to feature real rock songs, with the kind of vocals you'd know from Eno's first two albums – and it mixes straighter styles with more complex electronic soundscapes, resulting in some wonderfully cold and abstract material that prefaces musical territory that many other artists wouldn't hit until the following decade!
Entwistle, John - Whistle Rymes
(Track 2406.104 UK-72 VG+ 275:-)

John Alec Entwistle is probably the most influential bassist in rock music. Before Entwistle came along as a member of the Who, bassists seldom stood out for their playing and few casual listeners knew or cared what purpose the four-stringed instrument served - after he came along, everyone knew.

After making a surprisingly effective debut with "Smash Your Head Against the Wall", Entwistle consolidated his solo success with "Whistle Rymes". Like its predecessor, this album combines catchy, straightforward, pop-tinged rock with dark, often bitingly sarcastic lyrics.
Eyes of Blue - In Fields of Ardath
(Mercury SR-61220 US-69 VG+ 500:-)

Welsh band Eyes Of Blue where formed in 1966 and released their first LP in 1968, showing influences by some of the coolest bands from the US West Coast like The Doors or Love.

Originally released in 1969, "In Fields Of Ardath" was the follow up to their superb debut LP, expanding the path of heavy Hammond based psychedelic progressive rock at its best with their aim of experimentation. This album contains also material they recorded for the movie Toy Grabbers in collaboration with Quincy Jones.
