Mama Lion - Give it Everything I've Got
(Philips 6369.252 Fra-73 VG+ 350:-)

Mama Lion was US blues/psychedelic rock band formed by Lynn Carey (lead vocals) and Neil Merryweather (bass, vocals) in Los Angeles in 1972. The band included a young James Newton Howard, who would go on to become well-known as a writer and performer of movie scores.

This, their second album, continues where their debut left off, lots of raw blues rock with superb vocals from Lynn Carey.
Manfred Mann - Mann Made
(His Master's Voice CSD-1628 UK-65 VG+ 275:-)

An R&B band that only played pop to get on the charts, Manfred Mann ranked among the most adept British Invasion acts.

"Mann Made" is the second studio album by Manfred Mann. There were fewer R&B songs on "Mann Made" than on "The Five Faces of Manfred Mann" and more pop. Mike Vickers and Paul Jones would leave the group after this album.
McCafferty, Dan - Into the Ring
(Mercury 830.934-1 Ger-87 VG+ 500:-)

William Daniel McCafferty is a Scottish vocalist, best known as the lead singer for the Scottish hard rock band Nazareth from its founding in 1968 to his retirement from touring with the band in 2013.

"Into the Ring" was McCafferty's second solo album. It was released on vinyl only in Germany.
Moebius & Plank - Material
(Sky Records sky-067 Ger-81 VG+ 600:-)

'Material' is the second album of playful studio experimentation from Konrad 'Conny' Plank and Cluster's Dieter Moebius.

It was recorded at Plank's studio and features the two friends and collaborators in an endearingly explorative mode. The throbbing rockabilly send-up 'Conditionierer' makes a crazy start to the album, and much like the rest of their work at this time, strangely predates the techno culture of Germany by a decade or so.
Mott the Hoople - Rock n Roll Queen
(Island ILPS-9215 UK-72 EX 300:-)

ROCK AND ROLL QUEEN is an excellent introduction to Mott the Hoople's pre-"All the Young Dudes" background, with tracks that one would consider truly representative of their early powers - the title track, of course, the claustrophobic hard rockers "Walking With a Mountain" and "Thunderbuck Ram," and the grinding "Death May Be Your Santa Claus".

Original UK pressing on pink rimmed Island 'palm tree' label.
Mott the Hoople - same
(Island ILPS-9108 UK-69 VG+ 600:-)

Mott's first album is always a delight to listen to. A healthy mixture of covers and originals, it opens with an instrumental cover of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me". Two more covers follow, Doug Sahm's "At The Crossroads" and Sonny Bono's "Laugh At Me", both highlighting the fact that in the early days Ian Hunter's vocal delivery was influenced by Bob Dylan - indeed Dylan fan Lester Bangs, reviewing the album in Rolling Stone magazine, gave it a glowing review, convinced that Dylan had recorded an album under an assumed name.

Original UK pressing. The inside of the gatefold has a previous owners nametag.
Mountain - Nantucket Sleighride
(Island ILPS-9148 UK-71 VG+ 300:-)

Solid jamming from Mountain – one of the tightest guitar-based groups of their day, and hard rockers that could serve up a nice dose of soul!

The tunes have a great mix of tight rhythms and fierce guitars, with some nice production overall by Felix Pappalardi.
