van der Graaf Generator - H to He
(Charisma CAS-1027 UK-76 VG+ 300:-)

Like most 70s progressive rock bands, VDGG thrive on complexity. The arrangements on this particular album are by no means clinical or mathematical, but each song has a somewhat irregular and meandering dramatic arc.

The music is dominated by Peter Hammill's distinct vocals and the sometimes spacey organ of Hugh Banton. The album also features a guest appearance from King Crimson's Robert Fripp.

3rd UK pressing.
Van Halen - For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge
(Warner 7599-26594-1 Ger-91 EX 1000:-)

In the late 1970s and on into the '80s, Eddie Van Halen's virtual re-invention of the guitar was the core of one of Hard Rock's most enduring bands.

Van Halen hit the alternative-dominated '90s with a return to hard rockin' action. This eleven song effort find's Eddie rediscovering the time honored guitar riff, while Alex pounds the kit with authority.
Vanadium - Game Over
(Durium DAI-30414 Ita-84 VG+ 275:-)

Vanadium was an Italian heavy metal band from Milan. It was one of the first heavy rock bands to appear on the Peninsula and is considered among the most successful European exponents of the genre.

Their third album, "Game Over" (1984), is possibly their most successful, with figure sales of about 54,000 copies.
Waters, Roger - Radio K.A.O.S.
(EMI 2407831 Fra-87 VG+ 300:-)

Roger Waters’ second solo album is yet another conceptual narrative, one that tells the tale of a wheelchair-bound boy who tries to halt the threat of nuclear war through his use of the HAM radio.
Waters, Roger - Us + Them
(Sony 9439-70769 EU-20 EX 350:-)

Roger Waters, co-founder, creative force and songwriter behind Pink Floyd, presents his highly anticipated film, "Us + Them", featuring state-of- the-art visual production and breath-taking sound.

Filmed in Amsterdam on the European leg of his 2017 – 2018 "Us + Them Tour" which saw Waters perform to over two million people worldwide, the film features songs from his legendary Pink Floyd albums ("The Dark Side of the Moon", "The Wall", "Animals", "Wish You Were Here") and from his last album, "Is This The Life We Really Want?".
Watt, Mike - Ball-Hog Or Tugboat?
(Columbia C2-66464 US-95 VG+ 400:-)

Michael David Watt is an American bassist, singer and songwriter - co-founder of the rock bands Minutemen, Dos, and fIREHOSE.

This is a mid-90s classic. Those who are making it nowadays in rock and pop cannot match that eras experimentalism, creativity, quirkiness, humor, freshness. Cynicism, rage, and sensuality have now poisoned the hearts of youth. This is when rock was still fun.

US pressing on BLUE vinyl.
White, Tony Joe - Closer to the Truth
(Remark 511386-1 EU-91 EX 500:-)

Tony Joe White was an American swamp rock singer, songwriter and guitarist. He was best known for his song 'Polk Salad Annie'.

"Closer to the Truth" marked White's return to recording, after years working solely as a songwriter. The songs "Steamy Windows" and "Undercover Agent for the Blues" were originally written for Tina Turner, and were previously recorded by her for her album "Foreign Affair", featuring White on guitar.
Who - Live at Leeeds
(Polydor 2480.004 Ger-81 VG+ 300:-)

A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time!

Gatefold sleeve housing with 12 inserts inside a rice paper bag. "Limited Edition 2675 216" sticker on front cover, referring to the box set "Phases".
Who - My Generation
(Brunswick LAT.8616 UK-65 VG+/VG 1000:-)

"My Generation" is the first full-length set from The Who - a blistering batch of rough-edged tunes that run the gamut from bluesy soul to sweeter pop to guitar-driven grinders that show an incredible amount of power - even at this early point!

The sleeve of this copy is graded VG+ with residue of tape on top of the back; the vinyl has superficial marks but plays without problems.
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...
Wild Bunch - Battle Hymns
(Chrysalis CHR-1002 UK-71 VG+ 300:-)

Wild Turkey's "Battle Hymn", is excellent British folk-rock. The late Glenn Cornick was in Jethro Tull from 1968-1970, and formed this band in 1971 after being axed from the Tull. If you like British folk-rock this will be a good album for you. Excellent playing throughout.
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.
Vincent, Vinnie - All Systems Go
(Chrysalis OV-41626 US-88 VG+ 275:-)

Vincent John Cusano
played lead guitar in Kiss, from 1982 until mid-1984 during the band's transition out of their 1973–1983 makeup period.

Whereas Vinnie Vincent's Invasions debut album was a full-on guitar shredding assault, "All Systems Go" has a much more restrained feel to it. Sure, it’s big and bombastic and when Vinnie cuts lose the playing is amazing, though here he shows much more variation and finesse than the all-out speed-shredding of the debut album.
Wire - Chairs Missing
(Harvest ‎SHSP-4093 UK-78 VG+ 600:-)

A pretty astonishing creative leap for Wire – a record that still holds all the short, sharp, energy of their "Pink Flag" debut – but which also opens up the group to all these weird elements they'd explore in later years!

2nd UK pressing with B&W innersleeve, which has a 5cm split on the left side.
