Walker, Scott - Scott
(Philips SBL-7816 UK-67 VG+ 375:-)

The ultimate cult artist, it is hard to think of another American who had such an impact on rock music as a whole while being almost completely unknown to his countrymen as Scott Walker.

Walker's success as a teen idol with the Walker Brothers in no way prepared listeners for the mordant, despairing lyrics of his solo debut. His lyrical nuances were probably lost on his audience of predominately teenage girls, though they've earned him a small cult audience that endures to this day.
Walker, Scott - Scott 2
(Philips SBL-7840 UK-68 VG+ 500:-)

The ultimate cult artist, it is hard to think of another American who had such an impact on rock music as a whole while being almost completely unknown to his countrymen as Scott Walker.

"Scott 2" is the record that really has his true genius beginning to shine through! The record still features Scott singing dark moody takes on 60s pop tunes plus the usual round of Brel tunes, but it's also got some of his best songwriting ever, etched out in incredible original compositions like "The Amorous Humphrey Plugg", "The Girls From The Streets", and "Plastic Palace People".

Includes an 11" by 11" artist portrait insert.
Walker, Scott - Scott 3
(Philips SBL-7882 UK-69 VG+ 700:-)

Quite possibly the greatest moment ever from the legendary Scott Walker – a set that strongly steps beyond even the genius of his first two solo albums, thanks to an amazing assortment of original tunes!

Scott's dark vision of masculinity is emerging full-blown here – in an array of imagistic songs that piece together a very different picture of the male voice in music at the end of the 60s. Arrangements are quite large – echoing Scott's love of Jacques Brel and Jack Jones – but they've got a very subdued quality too, one that always takes second seat to Walker's incredibly haunting voice – rich, yet unquestionably fragile at the same time.
Who - Sell Out
(Track 613.002 UK-67 VG+ 1000:-)

An incredible album – and one of the most revolutionary rock albums of the late 60s!

The Who recorded this one as a tribute to mainstream radio at the time – linking together some solid stand alone tunes with shorter, wittier tracks that were recorded as commercials for products that included baked beans, acne cream, and deodorant – as well as cool announcer bits too! The end result is one of the most sonically complex records issued by a mainstream rock act of the time – sort of like The Who said "yeah, everyone's trying to copy Sgt Peppers with big arrangements, but we'll take this concept album thing in a whole new direction!". Brilliant all the way through!

No poster, though...
Who - Tommy: Live at the Royal Albert Hall
(Eagle EAGLP681 EU-17 EX 300:-)

More than any band before them, the Who transformed Rock 'n Roll into the weapon of choice for the generation gap struggles of the 1960s. Playing up tensions between young and old, this combativeness quickly became the band's hallmark. Roger Daltrey's perilous mic-swinging, Pete Townshend's ill-tempered guitar-smashing, and Keith Moon's "gonzo" drumming all bolstered the band's thuggish, working-class youth image - and suggested it was more than image.

In this 100th show in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust, The Who performed their nearly 50 year old landmark rock opera "Tommy" in its entirety along with a second set of 7 greatest hits at London's historic Royal Albert Hall.
Villagers - Live at the Workman's Club
(Domino WIGLP273 UK-11 EX 275:-)

Villagers are an Irish indie folk band from Dublin, formed in 2008, after singer Conor O'Brien's break-up of his previous band The Immediate.

Villagers’ night at the Workman’s Club was as much celebration as a gig. Throughout the hour long performance, Conor’s voice ranges from the intimate tones of a friend confiding in you on tracks like ‘27 Strangers’ and ‘The Pact’ to the soaring, almost rapture-like intensity on ‘Pieces’ and ‘Home’.

Exclusive Record Store Day 2011 release.
Wilson, Deirdre - Dierdre Wilson Tabac
(RCA Victor LSP-4283 US-70 VG+ 400:-)

A beautiful bit of funky rocking soul – and the one and only album by the Deirdre Wilson Tabac – a group whose name is as strange as their grooves are funky! The group are best known for their well-compiled track "I Can't Keep From Cryin Sometimes" – an uptempo jazzy gem that mixes skipping Hammond with soaring vocals and some really great horns – and the rest of this set has a very similar feel – one that blends jazz rock with more soulful vocals, in a groove that's totally unique! Sonny Casella wrote, arranged, and produced the record – and he's also the drummer in the group, so there's keen attention to rhythms on all tracks.

Original US pressing.
