Yes - The Affirmery
(Amazing Kornyfone TAKRL-1981 [bootleg] VG+ 375:-)

Yes founded the Church of Prog. Their services consisted of mostly instrumental, hour-long songs chock full of synth solos, endless guitar noodlings, medieval themes, and formulaic changes.

This set was broadcast over the King Biscuit Flower Hour from Boston Garden, December 11, 1974 and is one of the most popular recordings of Yes in circulation.
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 - Time Fades Away
(Reprise MS-2151 US-73 VG+ 300:-)

"Time Fades Away" is taken from a tour in 1973, a tough time for Young, right after the death of Danny Whitten.

The tour lasted about 3 months and saw Young and his band travel throughout the USA and parts of Canada, playing full-sized arenas with between 15 and 19 thousand people in the audience. During the tour, the band played a lot of "Harvest" songs, but the live album consists of new (at the time) material.
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 400:-)

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.
Zappa, Frank - Guitar
(Zappa ZAPPA-6 UK-88 EX 275:-)

Frank Zappa's music has always been fascinating, confusing and unpredictable. Bringing together every single musical genre, instrument and sensibility, Zappa's vast output is a legacy of some of the most complex and brilliant music of this century.

Zappa's "Guitar" is an instrumental work. Like the preceding "Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar" suite (released as a box set in 1982), Zappa had initially considered this as part of a set.
Zappa, Frank - London Symphony Orchestra, vol 1
(Barking Pumpkin FW-38820 US-83 VG+ 400:-)

This was the first of Frank Zappa's "serious" orchestral albums. The album consists of three pieces. The first two, Sad Jane, and the three movement Mo 'n Herb's Vacation highlight Zappa fascination with a few twentieth century classical composers, particularly Igor Stavinsky and Edgard Varèse. The third piece is Bogus Pomp, in this case a more developed version of some of the orcestral music from "200 Motels".

6000 copies pressed; titles are embossed on front cover.
Zappa, Frank - Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar
(CBS 66368 Hol-81 VG+ 400:-)

Frank Zappa's music has always been fascinating, confusing and unpredictable. Bringing together every single musical genre, instrument and sensibility, Zappa's vast output is a legacy of some of the most complex and brilliant music of this century.

This 3LP Box contains instrumentals, recorded between 1977 and 1980. Until the release of this album, only a few people realized what the hard-core Zappa fanatics had known all along... that FZ can play the guitar!
