Tempest - Living in Fear
(Island ILPS-9267 Swe-74 VG+ 275:-)

Forged by Colosseum drummer Jon Hiseman, progressive jazz-rock quartet Tempest appeared on the scene in 1972. Paul Williams, who had sung for Juicy Lucy, provided vocals, jazz fusion legend Allan Holdsworth manned the guitar, and fellow Colosseum member Mark Clark supplied the bass.

The band’s debut album, originally released by Bronze Records in 1973, was a fine work and featured exemplary musicianship from the quartet. By the time of the recording of Tempest’s second album both Holdsworth and Williams had departed. In their place came guitarist Ollie Halsall of Patto fame! Halsall's playing is simply glorious throughout, blending jazz-rock and accurate heavy rock. He also sings and plays various keyboard on the album, adding to the progressive textures of the music.
Trader Horne - Morning Way
(Janus JLS-3012 US-70 VG+ 350:-)

One of the most interesting one-shots of the early '70s, this duo featured Irish multi-instrumentalist Jackie McAuley, who was responsible for some of those great organ lines on Them's early records, and Judy Dyble, who sang on Fairport Convention's first album before being replaced by Sandy Denny in 1968.

Their sole LP contains nice British folk-rock with an Olde English, fairy-tale air, and will appeal to fans of the early work of Fairport Convention.

Original US pressing.
Traffic - Colored Rain
(Island ILP-800 Swe-67 VG+ 800:-)

Though it ultimately must be considered an interim vehicle for singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Steve Winwood, Traffic was a successful group that followed its own individual course through the rock music scene of the late '60s and early '70s.

Rare original 1967 Swedish-only album; on the pink Island label stereo LP. Vinyl is graded as EX with only a couple of barely visible surface marks which due to the depth of the grooves & the heavyweight vinyl of this 1960's pressing remain inaudible. It is housed in a unique fully laminated picture sleeve which is graded VG+; very rare!
Traffic - Last Exit
(Island ILPS-9097 UK-69 VG+ 700:-)

Though it ultimately must be considered an interim vehicle for singer/songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Steve Winwood, Traffic was a successful group that followed its own individual course through the rock music scene of the late '60s and early '70s.

When Traffic announced their breakup in '69, Island assembled this LP from cuts they'd recorded but not issued. An unexpected gem resulted, icluding "Just for You", "Feeling Good", "Withering Tree", "Blind Man" and more!

Original UK pressing on the 1st "Pink Island" label; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+
Traffic - Where the Eagle flies
(Island ILPS-9237 UK-74 VG+ 275:-)

Traffic's last album before their 1974 split takes the jazz-rock textures of THE LOW SPARK OF HIGH HEELED BOYS and SHOOT OUT AT THE FANTASY FACTORY to a logical conclusion. The songs here are more tightly structured than they had been on previous records, with only three of the seven tracks creeping over the six-minute mark. However, the band's interplay is more rhythmically loose than ever before.

Original UK pressing, complete with card lyric inner, textured picture sleeve.
Troggs - Cellophane
(Page One POLS-003 UK-67 VG+ 500:-)

The Troggs' third British LP is one of the more sought-after collector's items of the late 1960s. The group followed a more subdued, soft-rock folk-psychedelic path than they had on their earlier recordings, which wasn't necessarily a bad idea, as the hit single "Love Is All Around" proved.

Original UK STEREO pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
