Young, Neil - Forever Young
(Not On Label [none] EX 500:-)

Neil Young has never been one to eschew change, and this 1982 concert certainly found him in a transitional mode. Recently signed to Geffen Records, he had released TRANS, an album that, with its computerized tracks and electronically altered vocals, remains one of the oddest (and more underrated) in his entire catalog.

He was also touring with a band drawn from virtually all phases of his career, with bassist Bruce Palmer (from the Buffalo Springfield), drummer Ralph Molina (from Crazy Horse), guitarist Nils Lofgren, steel guitarist/keyboardist Ben Keith and others.

2LP set recorded live in Göteborg, Sweden, October 8, 1982. Limited Edition of 1000 [#604].
Young, Neil - Trans
(Geffen GHS-2018 US-82 EX 275:-)

"Trans" was a bold and bewildering move into the 'modern age' for Neil Young. While it's been called his 'Electronic' album, "Trans" doesn't transport Neil into Depeche Mode territory. Instead, it finds him experimenting with an array of computers, keyboards and vocoders along with his standard guitar/bass/drums backbone.

Original US pressing with lyric inner and stickered picture sleeve. This first press lists 'If You Got Love' on the sleeve and the inner, but the track is NOT on the album (there is a sticker on the back explaining its absence) - still in the original [opened] shrink!
Z Z Top - Eliminator
(WEA W3774P UK-85 EX 275:-)

In the more than thirty years that they have been together, ZZ Top have mutated from a hard rocking boogie band into pop culture icons. Some might say, that they are also forward thinking musical geniuses whose appropriation of MTV and melding of Hard Rock to Dance rhythms put them so far ahead of the curve that -- for a while in the mid-1980s -- they seemed poised to take over the world.

"Eliminator", with its churning guitars and synthesizer hooks, was on the album charts for over a year. The album and its accompanying videos were ubiquitous in 1983, on television ZZ Top was seen on MTV, St. Elsewhere, even on the Tonight Show.

UK PICDISC in clear PVC sleeve.
Zappa, Frank - 200 Motels
(United Artists UDF-50003 UK-71 EX 300:-)

200 MOTELS is the soundtrack to Frank Zappa's wacky 1971 motion picture of the same name, which starred Ringo Starr and Keith Moon, among others. Although it enjoyed success as a "midnight movie" in the '70s/early '80s, 200 MOTELS is a difficult movie to comprehend, since the storyline is very abstract (some have hinted that it was made up on the spot!). But even when his music is difficult to understand, Zappa includes many interesting twists and turns, and the soundtrack for 200 MOTELS is no different.

Original UK 2LP set; comes with a superb 16-page full colour booklet packed with stills from the film (the poster though, is missing). The sleeve has shows minor wear; the vinyls are graded EX.
Zappa, Frank - Grand Wazoo Comic Book Extravaganza
(Mushroom FZ-0972 bootleg EX 375:-)

Mega rare double album capturing Frank Zappa with his 20-piece Grand Wazoo band/orchestra live at the Felt Forum in New York City on September 23rd 1972. Original 1975 issue on Mushroom Records (FZ0972) comes pressed on red vinyl (disc one) & white vinyl (disc two).
Zappa, Frank - Uncle Meat
(Reprise MS-2024 Ger-69 EX 400:-)

Just three years into their recording career, the Mothers of Invention released their second double album, Uncle Meat, which began life as the largely instrumental soundtrack to an unfinished film. It's essentially a transitional work, but it's a fascinating one, showcasing Frank Zappa's ever-increasing compositional dexterity and the Mothers' emerging instrumental prowess.

Original German issue on the orange/brown Reprise label.
