Genesis - We can't Dance
(Virgin GENLP3 UK-91 VG+ 300:-)

Genesis' early work is characterized by complex song structures, elaborate instrumentation and the theatrical antics of founder member and vocalist Peter Gabriel, who left the band August 15, 1975. Unable to find a suitable replacement, it was drummer Phil Collins who assumed lead vocal duties. This change saw band move into more accessible pop-based music.

After spending the 1980s moving in an increasingly pop-friendly direction, "We Can't Dance" marked a return to earlier aesthetics for Genesis. Edgier with more prominent guitars and live drums, the record was the band's strongest musical statement in over a decade.
Gentle Giant - Three Friends
(Vertigo 6360.070 UK-72 VG+ 1250:-)

Gentle Giant's third album was a concept album about three friends who grew up together in school, parted ways, and meet up with each other in the future when each has choose a career for themselves.

UK 2nd pressing; "Made in England" on the B-side and correct listing of B1 as "Peel the Paint".
Goliath - Goliath
(Sweet Dandelion – SWDDL727 VG+ UK-12 275:-)

Very obscure UK band that were typical of the CBS brass-spiced prog sound, except for one major difference: Linda Rothwell - a very talented strong voiced singer with a style that immediately draws comparisons to Grace Slick in Jefferson Airplane or Carol Grimes in Delivery.

Reissue - allegedly limited to 500 copies.
Grateful Dead - Anthem of the Sun
(Warner Bros WS-1749 UK-69 VG/VG+ 500:-)

A classic set from the Grateful Dead – and one that features the group mixing studio tracks with their rising fame as a must-see live act! The package features both concert and studio recordings, and there's a wonderfully optimistic, late 60s vibe to the whole thing - mixing catchiness and complexity together in ways that few of their contemporaries could match.

Original UK pressing. The sleeve shows general wear and creasing.
Grateful Dead - Grateful Dead
(Mobile Fidelity MFSL-2-367 US-12 EX 1250:-)

An essential early document of the Grateful Dead – a double-length collection of live material that was one of the first to give the rest of the world a chance to hear what they could provide to their ever-growing concert audiences!

The tracks were mostly recorded in New York in early 1971, and have the group really spinning out their special sort of magic in ways that are a nice change from their studio records – looser, more jamming, and maybe more acoustic too – that shift from psych to roots that was already going on, but delivered here with the sort of warmth that would hold their fans in sway for years to come.

Half-Speed Production and Mastering by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. Numbered, Limited Edition (#001704).
Grave Digger - Heavy Metal Breakdown
(Noise N-007 Ger-84 EX 350:-)

Emerging from the early-to-mid 1980s heavy metal scene of their native Gladbeck, Germany, Grave Digger has been referred to as one of the so-called "big four" of German power metal, along with Helloween, Rage and Running Wild.

Hammering home one huge speed metal riff after another, "Heavy Metal Breakdown" starts off balls to the wall and just gets heavier. More importantly, though, Grave Digger has enough imagination, verve, and (despite the fact that they'd surely hate to admit it) pop smarts to keep the whole thing interesting.
Greatest Show on Earth - Horizons
(Harvest SHVL-769 UK-70 VG+ 500:-)

Greatest Show On Earth was the brainchild of talented musical brothers Norman and Garth Watt-Roy.

Backed by a hot brass section, this eight-piece outfit certainly packs a punch. With an eye-catching sleeve designed by Hipgnosis, ‘Horizons’ has become a collectors’ item throughout the world.
Greenslade - Greenslade
(Warner Bros K-46207 UK-73 VG+ 300:-)

Formed in 1972 by former Colosseum keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the band also featured former Web and Samurai member Dave Lawson, former Colosseum bass player Tony Reeves and drummer Andrew McCulloch (formerly with King Crimson and Fields).

The caliber of the members ensured that the group would be innovative, ground breaking and dynamic in their musical approach and would also be notable due to the absence of a guitarist within their ranks. Their debut album featured such future classic compositions as 'Feathered Friends', 'Melange', 'Drowning Man' and 'Sundance'.
Guns n Roses - Welcome to the Sessions
(Club 51 GNR05 US-89 VG+ 600:-)

At a time when pop was dominated by dance music and pop-metal, Guns N' Roses brought raw, ugly rock & roll crashing back into the charts. They were not nice boys: nice boys don't play rock & roll. They were ugly, misogynistic, and violent; they were also funny, vulnerable, and occasionally sensitive.

All songs recorded at the band's 1987 sessions. The demos sound good, but some are just poor recordings.
