DAVE BERRY - This Special Sound Of (Decca) UK 1966
OK - if wimpy - mid-60s pop, but has some r'n'b moments too, including a rather cooking "I Love You Babe" with great lead guitar, likely from Jimmy Page who (along with John Paul Jones) guested on some Berry recordings. This has a partially different track list (and running order) than what's listed in the Discogs discography, also different sleeve notes (& design of them) obc... and it's two years earlier (i e not 1968) as well. Mono.

NEW! BEVERLY PUREHEART - same (Adelphi) USA 1970
Super-obscure 7" five track EP with a total playing time of 18 minutes - all they ever did & what a record it is! This is just about the very definition of a local hippie freak band spending most of the time in their rehearsal space/crashpad, amidst incense & pot smoke, a pile of Dead/Mothers/Fugs/HMRounders records by the turntable & a stash of blotters for the weekend hidden behind the lava lamp! Very much a head comix feel to much of what goes one here (including the cover) & I'm confident the band looked just like the Furry Freak Bros. Musically it goes from a sort of goodtimey retro opening track through basement psychy not-quite-rock with clumsy percussion & twin leads over to rural folky weirdness, before it eventually ends up with the totally unhinged "The Complainer's Pathetic Plea", which adds almost avant-rock moves to an already utterly confusing musical stew. I put "What Should I Call You?" on the Arkivet Podcast mix I did a year back, so check that one out if you want a sample, I think it's track three or thereabouts:
(http://arkivetpodcast.se/blog/2019/1/16/mystery-jukebox-with-jens-unosson)
I got my own copy a couple of years ago, when the Napa Master emailed after having spotted it on the net - he'd never seen it before (nor had I), but he had a hunch it'd be something I'd dig. Six months later he'd come upon another one being offered & that's the copy I've here. Nobody I've asked has seen/heard of it, so I can only presume it's a really tiny pressing, despite being on Adelphi. Cover fittingly enough says "Proceeds to 'Bust Fund'"! Last-minute additional info: I see there's now a YouTube clip up of "The Complainer's..." - check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELtIrTyj0kI
Record: visually a very nice VG with faint surflines only, but it plays with some background surfnoise & occasional ticks. My own copy looks & plays the same, so I'm guessing it's a pressing issue.
Cover: VG; sturdy hard-cover has some light overall wear, a near-invisible number wofc in top right corner & since back slick is pasted slightly off-center there's some light fraying at bottom. Promo stamp ofc.
Price: SEK 1500 / $160

JOHN BISHOP - Plays His Guitar (Doesn't He) (Tangerine) USA 1971
Cheap & somewhat overlooked LP - side one's good easy-on-the-ears guitar/organ jazz rock, sort of; laidback groovy backbeat, slightly loungey feel with good playing. Nice late night spin. Unfortunately side two dives too deeply into the sappy lounge pool.

Very obscure gospel LP with powerful vocals, piano/organ/bass backing. Great album, though a seriously low-budget recording/pressing which makes it hard on the ears if you care about such things... for the rest of us, it might perhaps just add to the vibe/feel. Directed by one Thelma Gould.

Price: SEK 150 / $16

NEW! CLAES DIEDEN - First Claes (Olga) Sweden 1970
Rather obscure kinda sappy pop, the kind where just a little more taste & funnier ideas could've turned things into half-decent popsike. Alas, it wasn't to be.

FLYING MACHINE - same (Janus) USA 1969

Slightly tampered-with US release of Pye UK LP; opens with the sappy-but-kinda-neat "Smile A Little Smile For Me", which made its way onto a UK psych comp or two.
Record: VG; looks a grade higher, but pressing's a tad noisy; drillhole through label.

FROST - Rock And Roll Music (Vanguard) USA 197?
Slightly later pressing on marble label in non-gatefold of 1969 partly live-recorded (Grande Ballroom, Detroit) sweaty rawk, some long tracks.

NEW! THE GOLDEN GATE - Year One (Audio Fidelity) France 1969
Orchestrated US pop in neat cover with a slight sunshine vibe & show tunes feel as well, original material. "In a Colorful Way" is by far the best, as it's only a few steps from moving into full-on popsike mode. Odd LP, who was the targeted audience?

JIMI HENDRIX - In The Beginning (Shout) Canada 1972
1966 recordings with Lonnie Youngblood; I hadn't heard this in, what, 20 years maybe & was surprised at how good it is, esp the 11:24 "Let The God Sing" is awesome - and sounds way ahead of its time for the vintage.

THE HUMBLEBUMS - Open Up The Door (Transatlantic) UK 1970
3rd/last, with heavy guests like Terry Cox & Barry Dransfield (+ Bernie Holland of Jody Grind). Loses most of the over-arranged backing - a wise move that is trumped only by the addition of tablas on one track. "Steamboat Row" is a really neat song.
Record:
VG; a grade higher but for a couple of tiny marks s1t5,6, they do very little though; micro warp nap.
Cover:
very nice G; light seam/spine/cornerwear; some ring/shelfwear (black laminated cover); some loosening of lamination f/b at spine; very light wear f/b at opening; a few light creases at spine & one obc at opening.

disc one's F with plenty of light lines & surfmarks, nothing too serious though & esp s2 plays a lot better than grade, while disc two has an ugly scratch s4, which causes some minor noise + mostly scattered pops, most notably a handful repeated ones during banter between t1,2, but rest's a solid G.

NEW! IRENE CHRISTINA RUT-MARI - Jesus Är Vägen Sanningen Och Livet (MR's) Sweden 197?
Early 70s micro label release & my fave from the brainwashed Swedish xian underground... three cute young ladies do solo-duo-trio vocals with light backing, usually full band, including some great cheesy organ. Spoken part on last track is downright spooky in its "saved" dedication, but if you don't understand Swedish this moment will perhaps pass you right by (or maybe it'll sound more like speaking in tongues & freak you out completely!). To paraphrase VB on the Guitar Ensemble: "most of you would be severely bummed to find this in your mailbox", but a few of you would dig it a lot!
Record: nice G; very light surflines/marks only.
Cover: strong F; fo; thin & oversized, this almost always has some wear. This copy has seam/spine/corner/edgewear; ring/shelfwear (mostly on black back); top's bent & creased & there's light bending/creasing elsewhere too; minor cornerbends/bumps; very light soiling inside gatefold; micro tofc.

Hippie folk outfit lost in the chilly dawn of the 80s... acoustic guitars & with rough vocals, plus flute, some keys, and tablas (by Theo Greyerz, ex-Handgjort) on two tracks.

Record: VG; some paper scuffing & faint surflines; light warp nap.
Cover: G; a grade higher but for sealing stkr f/b; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; near-invisible slight soiling ofc; very light wear ofc at opening; a few really light creases along seams/spine. Original inner.

JOYOUS NOISE - same (Capitol) USA 1971
1st from Ron Elliott's buddies, including Marc McClure from the excellent Levitt & McClure, as well as Dennis Dragon. Rustic, organic CA rock in a not-quite-laidback, not-quite-heavy mode... not on par with their excellent 2nd, but this has its moments too, esp 'Lost Man' is quite the killer. Red target label.
Record: VG+; tiny scratch cause a few very faint background ticks s2t2; real tiny warp nap.

A k a II or 'the blue one'; classic heavy folky prog/psych with 'double' line-up. This period of theirs must've been crazy-good in concert.

NEW! LEVITT & McCLURE - Living In The Country (Warner) USA 1969
Wlp of excellent west coast folk duo, with a sound all their own. Sleeve notes mention their main influences as being Flatt & Scruggs and Buffalo Springfield, which I can hear, even though I've always thought that some songs, especially "Paradise", sound more like 1st LP era QMS, had they been a country folk duo... really nice electric guitar picking & strong vocals too.

LINN COUNTY - Fever Shot (Mercury) USA 1969
2nd from the band behind the near-genius (& criminally underrated) "Proud Flesh Soothseer". Here you can tell by the cover shot alone that most of the acid went out the door & even if Dino Long is still wearing the same buck skin jacket, the awesome Buffalo Bill-on-the-moon vibes are sadly long gone as well. All that said this is still an excellent bluesy SF LP with several cuts that stretch out quite a bit with snakey leads, riffing & droning horns & organ & the whole band playing on the flashbacks into the morning sun... title track is a monster for this particular groove. Bet they killed it live.
Record: G; lotsa light lines & marks, but nothing deep/too serious - playing ranges from slightly less than grade to a lot better & always loud & clear.
Cover: strong G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear, esp obc; less than 2" discreet ss mid-bottom; very light wear at opening; drillhole. Lacks the original inner.

Record: strong VG; some really light surflines only.

NEW! MAGIC SAND - same (Uni) USA 1970
Weird release, the history of which is now somewhat wellknown. Main fame to claim is the inclusion of the Hooterville Trolley track "No Silver Bird", here called "Get Ready to Fly". My personal hit-pick is however the opener "Listen to What's not Being Said", by the decidedly less hip Mudd... a great rural rocker with an abundance of cool percussion & better than anything else they did. I've always liked this cover, back when I thought this was a real band it added a bit of mystery & freakiness to an LP that not quite lived to up this! Promo.
Record:
 strong G; light lines/marks only.
Cover:
 G; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; top seam split 4" at opening & 1.5" bottom seam at spine; initials wofc; small promo stobc.

MANFRED MANN - What A Mann (Fontana) UK 1968
Long time since I heard this, so I gave it a brief spin & it was much better than I remembered, even some faint psych & early prog undercurrents and rather solid - if a bit lightweight - from start to finish.
Record: s1 G, s2 F, both with light surflines/marks only, plays ok.
Cover: F; some seam/spine/cornerwear + spine has a 3" split at middle; light ring/shelfwear, a bit more obc; bottom flap has a tiny tear at opening & a bigger one at right hand corner; some creasing & bending; minor wear at opening f/b. Front looks rather good & it's not terrible overall either.

MERKIN - Music From Merkin Manor (Akarma) Italy 1997
Long oop re of weird & rare 1973 Windi release - not weird in any musical sense, but it's a hard one to get a grip on, despite what on the surface appears to be a pretty straight sound, breezy pop-rock with vocal harmonies & some cool guitar leads in places. Bit of a darker undercurrent, but you'll have to scrape off a few layers to get there... It's pretty good though, if a bit samey. I nevertheless suspect that fewer psych heads would be going after this had the cover not been so instant monster-looking. 3 bonus tracks.

Here's a cool album which is beginning to gain something of a rep ; I last had a copy aboout 10-12 years ago & interest & price have both soared since then. Side one is pretty straightforward singersongwriter stuff, but it starts to get weird on the last track, which is full of spacey sounds & then over on side two there's a lot more of that plus odd recitations & a generally cryptic feel - it's all very smooth, but also rather out-there. I presume Darragh's Arazonian, at least that's where it's recorded & label contact address says Tempe, but he looks like a Californian surfer dude, only more introspective, and yet I seem to recall  him being part of the same neo-druid scene as Gwydion! Top copy.
Record: VG+; downgraded because of some very light scuffing & a tiny few surflines - it plays pretty much perfectly though, bar some extremely light occasional background surfnoise on one track.
Cover: EX; in shrink; very light overall wear only.
Price: SEK 2500 / $266

NORRBOTTENS JÄRN - Järnet (Manifest) Sweden 1976

NEW! PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC - Get it on (Sonet) Sweden 1969
Scarce Swedish pressing in single dressed lady sleeve of their 1968 debut. A lot better than what followed, this is cool heavy groovin' CA blues rock with 3rd on the bill ballroom vibes a-plenty.
Record: F; lots of light surflines/marks, but it plays rather ok - has background surfnoise, but since it's a loud album this isn't getting in the way too much (apart from between tracks, where it's obviously more noticeable).

NEW! RANDY PALMER - Fighter by Nature (Roro) USA 1975
Wonderful Texas rural folk/singersongwriter, with a slight cabin fevery folk psych feel to a track or two ("Starshine Daylight" will knock your handmade woolen socks right off). Supposedly in high school when he did this (he sure looks older than that to me though!), it has a youthful, bittersweet feel that makes it the perfect rocking-chair-on-the-porch thing to play as the sun goes down over the fields & you're contemplating what tomorrow & life may bring. Primitive recording adds considerably to its lost in time feel & front cover too brings in that extra special vibe. I mean, look at it! This whole album is just so ridiculously way up my dirt road, and I've not yet even mentioned the killer back to the land-anthem called, well, "Back to the Land"... this was on an old mix tape I did for a girlfriend moving in with me 15 years ago &
somehow the tape ended up for a while in my brother's car, where it was instant sing-along action as soon as this track came on. Anyway, I kinda like this & you should too! His 1st & to me by far the best, of only two albums in all, and I believe Randy himself is now plowing fields of a more heavenly type. R.I.P., hero of the Northlings.
Record: very strong G; light lines/marks only & it plays fine (cheap pressing though). Tiny warp causes a very light swoosh on intro grooves - on s1 it disappears immediately once music starts, on s2 you can just about hear it for a few seconds longer if you listen for it.
Cover: nice G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; top seam split 2" at opening; bottom seam has a couple of very tiny splits; tiny cornerbump; a few minor stains; light wear f/b at opening; a couple of super-light creases.
Price: SEK 300 / $32

MARI BOINE PERSEN - Jaskatvuoda Manná (Hot Club) Norway 1985
Scarce debut LP from one of the biggest names in present-day Sami music. This is however not a folk LP, but rather an extremely 80s-sounding mishmash of things... including a Lennon-cover. Pretty rare though.

NEW! POOR RICHARD - Place of the Sun (Kazoo) USA 1978
Michigan private pressing of some repute - folk/folkrock/folkpsych & some light prog moves here & there as well, not only because of the mellotron sweeps on the 13:10 "Series". As been noted elsewhere, 1st track sounds a lot like Mighty Baby around the time of "Jug of Love".

NEW! DAVID REA - By the Grace of God (Capitol) USA 1971
2nd LP from US draft dodger (& the main character in Joni's "Play Little David") hiding out north of the border.

RÖDA KAPELLET - Party Music / Partimusik (Avanti) Sweden 1976

Fun oddball Swedish prog that's difficult to describe - from heavy & powerful (check the great "Morron Med Siw") to goofy & just plain weird, sometimes during the course of just one track (like the 10:20 "Bingo Flamingo" & 16:09 "Lärling"). Mixed vocals.
Record: looks G with lots of light marks/lines, but plays very nicely.

SADISTIC MIKA BAND - Black Ship (Harvest) UK 1974

A bit uneven, but this has some great stuff on it, in that guitar/organ semi-heavy style that the label excelled at.

SONS OF CHAMPLIN - Loosen Up Naturally (Capitol) USA 1969
Stone classic 2LP debut from Bay Area nitty gritty r'n'b heads - they get everything right on this one! Communal acid cover art is great as well.
Records: both strong F, looking a grade higher & overall playing a LOT better than grade as well - I down-graded because of some low-level surfnoise mostly audible between tracks only; light scratch s1t2 ticks/pops a bit, but is mostly drowned out by the loud music; micro warps nap.

Price: SEK 80 / $9

SOUND EXPRESS - same (Anette) Sweden 1969
Very rare Swedish psych LP, obviously influenced by fellow drums/organ duo Hansson & Karlsson, but this adds some excellent acid wah-wah guitar to a couple of tracks, and it also tosses in a rather unexpected folk blues track with acoustic guitar & harmonica. Great LP, opener "Gotique" is a total classique.
Record: G; looks a nice VG & often playing it too (and better still, actually), but there's also background surfnoise/minor crackle here & there.
Cover: VG; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; a couple of minimal cornerbumps; there's some very light yellowing from removed clear tape at the very bottom f/b; a couple of very small & near-invisible toc; a tiny bit of light creasing here & there; almost completely invisible small writing indentation obc; minimal wear f/b at opening.
Price: SEK 2500 / $278

NEW! SOUNDS OF JOY - YHWH (Shalom) USA 1974
Frequently sold as "psych", which is crazy since most of this is very bland, nondescript xian sounds. "By the Way" is an almost ok folky track though (I'm being kind here) & "He Lives" is pompous semi-prog with overblown vocals & an extended electric guitar solo - but the one reason to give this a chance is the long closing track "Set Free", which opens with spacey sounds/voices, moves on to a spooky/weird zone with keys & cymbals, half-spoken/half-screamed vocals & manic laughter, lots of effects on them too, before a long instrumental orchestral part comes in & then it ends with a starry-eyed vocals/strings/electric piano segment... very weird... "The Wages of Sin is Death!" This LP pretty much epitomizes "one-tracker"!
Record: F; frequently playing better than that though & the track that matters plays fine; light warp nap (light surfnoise intro groove s1 stems from a tiny scratch); tol/stkr residue s1.
Cover: G; downgraded because of an ugly stkr tobc, but apart from this it's nice with light overall wear & small reference stkr/clear tape ofc, clear tape stretches out less than 1" over to back cvr as well.
Price: SEK 100 / $11

STRING CHEESE - same (Wooden Nickel) USA 1971

Good sorta arty, psychy LP with electric violin, a variety of keys, some electric sitar as well - it's a total rip-off of the It's A Beautiful Day sound, but I dig it anyway.

NEW! YMA SUMAC - Miracles (London) UK 1972
Yma on a rock bender, contempo psychy/proggy sounds, especially effective on "Zebra" which is rather awesome, but the whole album's
pretty cool.
Record: looks F with lots of light lines/marks etc & odd residue on intro groove & first track both sides, but it plays amazingly good - s1 is near-perfect even & s2 is never any worse than minor background crackle on a couple of songs.

SUPER-DUPER BLUES (Blue Horizon) UK 1969
Comp of various LP cuts from the expected ones... Mac, Bennett, Boyd, Dupree a o.
Record: strong VG; a few light surflines/marks only. Tiny chip of intro groove is missing, of course not affecting play.

Scarce Swedish jazz with Lars Gullin, Nils Lindberg, Sture Nordin a o.

NEW! SWEET TOTHE - Testing (Void) USA 1996
Long gone re in new cover of 1975 hard rock private pressing with plenty of fuzz & spacey psychy bits too; ltd & #'ed (337/400), green vinyl. Void should've stuck to thick cardboard & paste-ons.
Record: VG; very nice apart from small marks very beginning s1t1, but they do no more than cause light & very brief background surfnoise.

Price: SEK 150 / $17

NEW! TAMBA 4 (A&M) USA 1969
Pretty rare mono copy of solid bossa/latin jazzy grooves & one of the Waxidermy label faves; "Chant of Ossanha" is especially good.
Record:
nice G; a few light marks & scuffing only.
Cover:
F; fo; main issues are ring/shelfwear & soiling f/b + two odd tobc, looks like Xacto knife cuts which have then become discoloured. In addition to these details, there's also light overall wear + a drillhole.
Price:
SEK 200 / $21

TBC - Musik I Plast (Mjälthugg) Sweden 1978
Very rare original of north-Swedish punk rock 7"; yellow vinyl.

  s1 F, plays with surfnoise & some scattered ticks & pops, but still rather ok, s2 P with much more prominent surfnoise (gets better on 2nd track though); micro warp nap. No skips.

TELLER BUNTE KNETE - ...Macht Musik! (no label) Germany 1980

For 15 years or so one of my fave obscure German LPs has been the Teller Bunte Knete 'Stadtsmensch' record, which a Swedish-German metal guy hipped me to back in the early days of my shop. This privately pressed follow-up is even more obscure it seems & they stick to quirky folk-based sounds, but have lost a bunch of members & also most of the slightly sad hippie folk vibe that made their 1st such a winner. Still a pretty interesting under-the-radar LP though.
Record: s1 VG+, s2 VG because of some light surflines, but they don't do anything.
Cover: VG; light seam/spine/cornerwear; minor ring/shelfwear; minimal tofc; some bends/creases along spine/top seam; a couple of slightly bumped corners; minimal wear at opening; small wobc; distribution stobc.
Price: SEK 80 / $9


NEW! TEN YEARS AFTER - Ssssh (Deram) UK 1969
Record:
F, but pressing's so good & s1 so loud that apart from the 1st few seconds you won't notice very much. S2 is a tad less intense & consequently has a bit more background surfnoise, but overall this plays rather well too.
Cover:
nice F; fo; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; light ring/shelfwear; small stofc; small woc (inside gatefold & near-invisible obc); bits of clear tape bottom seam/bottom of pocket both sides; light wear at opening; some bends & creases. No Deram inner, but the one it came with has a psychedelically improved window made by the original young hippie girl owner, so I'm including that even if it's kinda tatty - for the genuine 1969 Stockholm teen stoner vibe!
Price:
SK 60 / $6

NEW! TEN YEARS AFTER - Watt (Deram) UK 1970
Record:
F; surfnoise in quiet parts, but plays ok big chunks of the time.
Cover:
strong F; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; ring/shelfwear; woc; stkr residue obc; light wear obc at opening; a few minimal tears; very light soiling; a few light bends/creases. As always the poster is long gone, but it comes with an inner - not the correct one - with some neat vintage hippie chick doodles (same artist as above). Folk art, baby!
Price:
SEK 60 / $6


TEN YEARS AFTER - Cricklewood Green (Deram) UK 1970

This used to pop up everywhere I went in the late 90s, been quite a while since I last had one though. That's not to say it's drying up, of course, but that it's getting scarcer in the north-Swedish backwoods... make of that what you will. Way better than I remembered too!
Record: G; typical Deram scuffing & surflines, playback's near perfect though.
Cover: VG; fo; slight seam/spine/corner/edgewear; some discreet tears/rubbing marks obc; minimal soiling. No poster.
Price: SEK 80 / $9

TEXAS - LOUISIANA BLUES (Highway 51) UK 196?
Rare & great mid-to-late 60s postwar blues comp LP (supposedly only pressed in 99 copies) with Lonnie Williams, Frankie Lee  Sims, Whistling Alex Moore, Sam 'Suitcase' Johnson, Black Diamond, Lil' Son Jackson, Country Jim, Jesse Thomas; 1-3 tracks each, recorded 1947-51. I dig the b/w labels with cheap, simple layout & album title in gothic lettering - the kind of design that makes my heart pound a little faster when I first see it.
Record: visually VG with mostly just some paper scuffing - cheap pressing though; micro warp nap.
Cover: VG+; light cornerbends/bumps & a small, neat wobc, otherwise very light overall wear only.
Price: SEK 400 / $43

EJE THELIN GROUP - same (Caprice) Sweden 1975
Swedish jazz LP, with typical - though great! - sounds of its era, lazy melodic stuff alongside weirder/wilder bits.
Record: VG+ apart from the very end of s2t3/bulk of t4,where faint marks cause some noise, on t4 it's declining quickly & not really too much of a bother; really light warp nap.
Cover: nice VG; fo; light seam/corner/edgewear; minor spinewear; slight rw but mostly shelfwear; light creasing at spine; very light wear obc at opening.
Price: SEK 40 / $4

NEW! THIRD EAR BAND - Alchemy (GI) UK 1982
Ltd (500, I think) and #'ed (437) re of their excellent 1969 debut; long-time fave of mine. GI had access to lots of mastertapes (this, High Tide, Roulettes, Pete Brown etc), but not artwork, so they all came in white covers with the simplest of graphics. Looks kinda cool in its own minimalistic way.
Record: EX
Cover: VG; light spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; slightly bumped corners; a bit tweaked at spine.
Price: SEK 300 / $32

NEW! TYRONE THOMAS & THE WHOLE DARN FAMILY - Has Arrived (Soul) USA 197?
There's a number of different pressings of this & I can't say exactly what I have here... for what it's worth it doesn't match any version that I could see on Discogs - this has a black back instead of brown, and matrix #'s differ as well. No matter what, a very nice copy of a scarce funk/soul LP.
Record: EX; noticeable warp nap. I know the original owner & am pretty sure this has only been played once!
Cover: very strong VG+; in shrink; two corners have light bends/bumps, but apart from this it's pretty much perfect.
Price: SEK 600 / $64

TIN PENNY - Cycles (Silver Crest) USA 1971
Local NY offbeat LP with a lo-fi charm that works as an antidote to the occasional overly ambitious prog moves. Jazz,
bluesrock, classical, hard rock, show sounds work their way into the happenings as well; mixed vocals. Naïve, charming & entertaining lost-in-tyme type of LP - b/w cover perfectly illustrates this as well, with a trippy life-death drawing ofc & a collage obc. Released on the same custom label as Floss & Collective Tools, too.
Record: looks a very nice & shiny G with very light surflines/marks only - but it plays pretty much perfectly all through.
Cover: nice VG; light overall wear + some ringwear obc & a not-too-bad wobc (last name black-on-black).
Price: SEK 1200 / $133

NEW! TOBIAS - Linsgryta (Kommun:2) Sweden 2011
Long gone solo album from the Kommun:2 main head, here's an archival 1st press - 100 made & in mono! Runs the gamut from garagey acid psych with killer wah-wah to more progressive inklings. True underground sounds & one of the best on the label.
Record: s1 EX, s2 VG+ because of some very light surflines/scuffing (of the type most current pressings have even before they're pressed, or so it seems anyway).
Cover: strong VG+; some very light overall wear to sensitive silver cover - this looked liked this when new. Insert.
Price: SEK 500 / $53

NEW! TONKRAFT 1977-78 (Tonkraft) Sweden 1982
Fine 2LP-set of material culled from a radioshow & at least at the time not available anywhere else. Of special note, perhaps, is the excellent 8:10 track by Anna Själv Tredje, while other acts include Dimmornas Bro, Horizont, Folk & Rackare, Ramlösa Kvällar, as well as Contra with their memorably-titled "She Left You in Skellefteå"... been there, done that etc etc. Third/last volume in this series, I think.
Records: disc one is beautiful EX (looks unplayed), disc two is VG+, very tiny scratch s3t2 pops lightly 3-4 times. Minimal warp nap disc two.
Cover: lower end of VG; fo; seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; pricetags ofc; light wear at openings; very light wrinkles at bottom corners; very small tofc; some very light bends/creases; super-light & near invisible scratch/rubbing marks f/b.
Price: SEK 250 / $27
tonkraftjpg

NEW! TOPPER - At Last (Scot) USA 1977
Wonderfully bizarre private prog LP with tons of spacey keys (opening track's called "Astral Plane"), effects, hardrock leanings, as well as funky vibes - the kind of record that never could have come out on a real label, and if it had, it wouldn't have sounded anything like this... definitely one from the darkest corners of the World of Private, with long tracks & the obligatory basement sound/vibe. I actually dig this a fair bit despite not being much for neither prog, hardrock nor funky moves! Highlights include the mellotron-driven prog ballad "Smile for the Clown", "Phaze 2" with an overload of space keys & effect-treated vocals towards the end, transforming something rather straight into a whole new body, and the closing "Hells Fire" is cookin' hardrock with hot guitar/organ riffing & intense vocals. But for the right head/mind this is cool all the way!
Record: G; no serious marks, plays fine.
Cover: F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; very small split top seam at opening; some soiling & age-yellowing obc; light wrinkles obc; minor wear f/b at opening; cornerbends/bumps.
Price: SEK 300 / $32

NEW! TRAFFIC - Last Exit (ISland) UK 1969
UK pink eye orig.
Record: F; light lines/marks only & s1 plays rather good - some minor background surfnoise between tracks & in quiet parts, but definitely enjoyable. S2 has a bit more background noise.
Cover: lower end of F; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; ring/shelfwear; tofc; pretty big stofc; bottom seam split 1/2 the way; top seam split
less than 1" at opening; wear at opening f/b; a few minor bends/creases.

TONY TREECE - Tall Dark Stranger (Crown) USA 196?

Cool country exploito with an at times slightly halting/untogether backing, giving this an unintentional - but welcome - edge.  (I have a few other LPs of this kind for cheap, like Jimmie Dale & The Western Trailsmen, Slim Sullivan & The Westerners etc - ask if interested.)
Record: VG; minimal warp nap.
Cover: VG+; in shrink; small tobc at opening, otherwise very light overall wear only.

I wish Uapa had made an album!
Record: VG; red vinyl & 52 minutes playing time may sound worrying, but it plays fine all through.
Cover: G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; stkr residue/very tiny tears f/b at opening; light wear at opening f/b; light bends/creases.
Price: SEK 200 / $21

IKE TURNER & THE KINGS OF RHYTHM - A Black Man's Soul (Pompeii) USA 1969
A bunch of versions exist of this title - here's one with black cover/no "Electronically re-recorded to simulate" blurb ofc/Cedar Springs address obc.

UNDERGROUND SUNSHINE - Let There Be Light (Intrepid) USA 1969
A real band, but there's nevertheless some exploito vibes here, not bad though & even if it had been, you'd forget all about this as soon as the 8:35 "Gimme Some Lovin'" or 11:53 (original) "Take Me, Break Me" come on, with their monster extended fuzz soloing. Most LPs of this ilk have since long left the farm, but I still hold on to a copy of this & actually even play it (or those two tracks anyway) every now & then as well!
Record: EX
Cover: VG; very light rw; light seam/spine/cornerwear: 2" split top seam at opening; absolutley minimal wear at bottom opening f/b; small wobc; one very light/faint scrape mark/tear ofc; nearly invisible press or rubbing marks ofc.

THE WILD ANGELS Volume II (Tower) USA 1967

Davie Allan & The Arrows, but more of Mike Curb... Fuzz psych exploitation sounds & weirder/crappier/loungier bits too, less coherent than 1st volume, but "Blues Theme" is a monster in the former bag.
