Hapshash & the Coloured Coat - Western Flier
(Liberty LBS-83212-E UK-69 VG+ 400:-)

Hapshash & the Coloured Coat's second and final album was a much more conventional and organized affair than the relatively anarchic, free-form (read songless) structure of their debut. Because of that, some listeners might be inclined to dismiss it as a sellout of sorts. Most listeners, however, will find it far easier to bear than its predecessor, even if it does sound more like a collection of tracks by a few different bands rather than a unified work.

The sleeve of this copy has a small tear on the back from a removed sticker; the vinyl is graded Very Good+.
Harper, Roy - Bullinamingvase
(Harvest SHSP-4060 UK-77 VG+ 300:-)

An idiosyncratic British singer/songwriter acclaimed for his deeply personal, poetic lyrics and unique guitar work, Roy Harper was a mainstay of London's Les Cousins folk club, performing alongside the likes of Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, and Nick Drake.

First released in 1977, this album was recorded by Roy at home in Hereford. He borrowed gear and people from EMI's Abbey Road studio to help with the project. The album features a host of stars including Ronnie Lane who came in for a day to help out and members of Wings.

Original UK pressing with bonus "7.
Harper, Roy - Flashes from the Archives
(Harvest SHDW-405 UK-74 VG+ 350:-)

An idiosyncratic British singer/songwriter acclaimed for his deeply personal, poetic lyrics and unique guitar work, Roy Harper was a mainstay of London's Les Cousins folk club, performing alongside the likes of Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, and Nick Drake.

By the time "Flashes From the Archives of Oblivion" was released, Roy Harper had already released seven albums and had even opened for Led Zeppelin during their ninth American tour. While it did not change Harper's obscurity, it did serve as an effective summation of his stunning work.
Harrison, George - All Things must Pass
(Universal STCH-639 EU-17 EX 1000:-)

Maybe the greatest thing that George Harrison did after the breakup of The Beatles – not his first solo album, but yet his first non-experimental venture – and a triple-length set that's filled with magic throughout!

Harrison has this amazing ability to craft new tunes with new styles in a way that really sets the record apart from his later work with The Beatles – maybe a summation of all those wonderful little moments that George was starting to add to their records, but fully blossomed here into a field's worth of fantastic musical flowers.

3 x 180g Heavyweight vinyl. Remastered for vinyl from the original analogue stereo master tapes.
Hartley Band, Keef - Overdog
(Deram SDL-2 UK-71 VG/VG+ 375:-)

A monster of a jazz rock set from drummer Keef Hartley -- a player who initially came to fame for his funky grooves in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers!

Hartley's sound here is a great mix of rootsy rock and some of the jazzier touches that were creeping into the London scene at the time -- with plenty of tightly snapping rhythms at the bottom of the tunes, enough to create a nice funky rock undercurrent on most numbers. The set's made even better by some great keyboard work from Mick Weaver -- and the best cuts have some really jamming elements that let Weaver open up on organ and electric piano.

Original UK pressing on the brown/white label. The rear sleeve has a tear at bottom right.
Hazlewood, Lee - Cowboy in Sweden
(LHI Records LHI-3101 Swe-70 VG+ 400:-)

Lee Hazlewood was the kind of guy you think you've got figured out when you first look at him – but the more you listen to his music, the more you want to raise him above all of the other hip singer/songwriters.

At heart, Lee was a Cowboy – much more so than any of those fake LA "desperadoes" of the Sunset rock years – and this album, recorded as part of the enigmatic film "A Cowboy In Sweden", is true testament to Lee's incredible ability to be both totally serious about his image, yet still maintain a sense of wit and distance that makes him incredibly hard to pin down, genre-wise. He's the country singer Scott Walker always wanted to be, and he's got a pop genius that Leonard Cohen painfully tried to reach in his later years. This album is brilliant!
Hazlewood, Lee - Forty
(LHI Records LHI-12009 US-69 VG+ 400:-)

This album is another fantastic lost chapter of Lee's career - recorded in London, with production by Shel Talmy, and a spacious overall sound that's really tremendous!

The sunburned western sound is still at the core of the session, but it's also set amidst sweeping strings that bring some nice Scott Walker-ish elements to the record - making for a sound that's as deeply resonant as Lee's great vocals, and a whole new side of his maturity too. Plus, the album has Hazlewood singing a number of tunes by other folks - the kind of material he never really does, but manages to completely transform on the record.
Hazlewood, Lee - Love and Other Crimes
(Reprise RS-6297 Ger-68 VG+ 300:-)

Barton Lee Hazlewood was an American singer, songwriter, and record producer, most widely known for his work with guitarist Duane Eddy during the late 1950s and singer Nancy Sinatra in the 1960s and 1970s. He had a distinctive baritone voice that added a resonance to his music.

"Love and Other Crimes" finds Hazlewood in a reflective mood, sifting through the ashes of a love gone wrong. Yet the album isn’t all loser’s tears and raindrops – by the end of side two, Hazlewood is unbowed, undefeated, and above all, unrepentant. This is prime Hazlewood and essential listening for fans of the man and his work.
Hazlewood, Lee - The N.S.V.I.P.'s
(Reprise RS-6133 Ger-6? VG+ 300:-)

A pivotal record in the career of the great Lee Hazlewood – one that presents his personal with all its wit and warmth, yet also lets Lee take on some more mature topics as well!

Most of the tunes start in the same sort of storytelling style as on "Trouble Is A Lonesome Town" – but Hazlewood's a lot more tongue-in-cheek with his presentation, and directs the lyrics towards much more biting commentary – not entirely politically progressive, but definitely a larger sense of society beyond the individual.
Hell, Richard - R.I.P.
(ROIR A-134 US-84 EX 100:-)

This Richard Hell compilation was originally released in 1984 as a cassette-only release and was later re-released on CD (different cover, same track listing).

It collects a total of 14 tracks (most studio, some live) and serves as a solid anthology/greatest-hits compilation. The selections span his career from 1975-1984, from one of his first bands (the legendary Heartbreakers with Johnny Thunders) up until a later incarnation of the Voidoids. The sound quality is consistent for the most part, and the music is rough, raw, and rocking -- in other words, classic Richard Hell.
Hollies - Evolution
(Parlophone PCS-7022 UK-67 VG+ 375:-)

The Hollies were formed in Manchester in the early 60's. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the 1960's and early 1970's.

"Evolution" is considered the band's most accessible blend of pop and psychedelia.
Hollies - For Certain Because...
(Parlophone PCS-7011 UK-66 VG+ 300:-)

The Hollies were formed in Manchester in the early 60's. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the 1960's and early 1970's.

"For certain because..." was their first album entirely composed of original material, and it echoed pop's increased sophistication with fuller, more adventurous arrangements and more personal, folk-rock influenced compositions.
Holocaust - Live (Hot Curry & Wine)
(Phoenix PSPLP-4 UK-83 VG+ 375:-)

Hailing from Edinburgh, Scotland, Holocaust cut their teeth in local clubs during the waning days of punk, before finally scoring an independent record deal.

"Live (Hot Curry & Wine)" was taped at Edinburgh's Niteclub in September 1981. Metallica famously covered “The Small Hours” on their "The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Visited". Even today James Hetfield proudly wears a Holocaust patch on his denim vest.
Hunger - Strictly from Hunger
(Akarma AK-045 Ita-99 EX 400:-)

Hunger! (originally from Portland, Oregon), were full-fledged members of the L.A. psych scene of the late-sixties, and despite their opening for top-shelf acts like the Doors and The Strawberry Alarm Clock, their one and only album did not make much of a splash at the time, and the band dissolved soon after its release. However, the album has since become one of the most collectible in its genre and upon listening one can see why. This rhythm-heavy Doors-influenced hard psych is frequently referred to as 'one of the best psychedelic albums of all time'! Band member Ed King went on to play with the Strawberry Alarm Clock and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Housed in a plain black box of quite thin cardboard with only a small sticker on the front, this box set couples both Akarma releases 'Strictly From Hunger!' (AK 045) on black vinyl and 'The Lost Album' (AK 045/2).
