I gambled on a sealed copy listed with somewhat vague pressing information, hoping it'd turn out to be a sealed US import copy - which it wasn't.

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.

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.
Record: G; lotsa lines/light scratches cause surfnoise, audible between tracks mostly; micro warp nap.

sabbath paranoidjpg

BLACK SABBATH - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath (WWA) Norway 1973
Record: visually s1 VG+, s2 strong VG with just some minor surflines/scuffing & overall playing these grades & better, but there's a slight hissing sound between tracks - barely audible in some cases, a bit more in other, but never too bad.

Price: SEK 200 / $24


BLACKWELL - same (Astro) USA 1970

Texas band doing pretty good psych & early prog as well as some softer/sappier tracks. The good stuff's full of swirling organ & fine lead guitar, peaking on the classic "Mr. Jupiter", all spacey sound effects & fuzz. I've always felt that the singer had an odd  voice for its time - almost like he's predating glamrock or something. Promo copy.
Record: VG+; wlp.
Cover: VG; minor seam/spine/cornerwear; very light ring/shelfwear; two light cornerbends; minimal wear ofc at opening; really tiny sawcut.
Price: SEK 250 / $27

Scarce V/A LP on tiny label, consisting of demos that various underground acts sent in to a radio show. Ragnar Borgedahl, Sanitetsgruppen, Jämmer & Elände, Sjön Suger a o. All exclusive material, if I remember correctly - folk, rock, prog, several great acts/tracks.

BILL BLUE BAND - Streetpreacher (Feather) USA 1975
2nd from native American blues guy; his first was an excellent folkblues thing, but this goes for a full band blues rock sound. Cool cover art (pic on back leaves no doubt that these guys killed beercans with their shotguns inbetween recording sessions) & a scarce private press on Bill's own Feather label, out of Virginia. "Ain't It Funny" is excellent with great guitar/keys interplay atop a moodily swingin' groove.
Record: VG; looks a lot better, but there's some very light surfnoise in places + a tiny mark at the very end/beginning of s1t1/2 cause a tiny few brief ticks/pops.

bill bluejpg

BUDDY BOHN - Places (Happy Tiger) USA 1969
Quiet folkie; both he & the neat sorta generic-looking cover must've been impossibly outdated by the late 60s... but a zone of his own is better than no zone at all. Also: "proud breasts of Bali".
Record: s1 VG, s2 G.
Cover: nice G; minimal spinewear; seam/cornerwear; really small splits top seam at opening & spine; 3" split mid-bottom seam; light ring/shelfwear.

Price: SEK 160 / $18

Price: SEK 180 / $21

CARTOONE - same (Atlantic) USA 1969
US pressing of one-off release by a UK band mostly known for having Jimmy Page helping them out, but they should be better known for the quality of tracks like "Knick Knack Man" & "Withering Wood", both in a sort of post-psych/pre-prog Traffic/Family style & rather excellent too. Some other tracks are too wimpy, but much of this is pretty good.
Record: VG+

Great sleeve notes: "I don't remember / much about the scene / that went down that night / I think me had a chillum / in the park across from / the station.

Price: SEK 100 / $11

C.O.B. - Spirit Of Love (Tapestry) Euro 200?
Limited (well, 1000 copies) re in single sleeve (Tapestry added a gatefold for their 2nd pressing) of monster 1971 UK LP. I used to think
"Moyshe" was the better one, but in the last decade I've changed my mind about this. In any event both are some of the very best UK
folk-&-far-beyond-that records ever & everyone should own this in one form or the other.
Record: VG+; has some scuffing & light surflines, but these do not sound... so I figure VG+ is appropriate despite these visual imperfections.
Cover: strong EX; in shrink; like new with the only thing keeping it from higher grade being a superlight manufacturing tweak/bend at top
front at opening.
Price: SEK 160 / $17
cobjpg

DENNIS COFFEY - Goin' For Myself (Sussex) USA 1972

CLAES EKENSTAM & SISTA BANDET - Sista Tåget Till Tajskent (Sista Bussen) Sweden 1979
Good, obscure & overlooked freaky underground sounds, sort of in the same vein as Sogmusobil, but this has folky stuff too. Several long tracks.
Record: looks G with plenty of scuffing etc, but mostly playing better than grade. 2nd half of s1 has some minor background crackle in places though, most notable during first half of last track.
Cover: strong G; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light rw; sealing stkr residue f/b + small tear next to it obc; some very light soiling/age yellowing f/b. Orig inner. Would've been a grade higher but for the stkr residue.

NEW! ELLIOTT AND WALTER - Save A Piece Of The World (Jam) USA 1975
1st album from a duo/trio with a long string of releases to their name(s); folk-pop with a slightly loungey vibe, but also a dreamy folk psychy feel & ambitious prog/arty vibes lurking below the surface. Pro-sounding, but it doesn't come across as slick & has more than enough quirky bits to end up being something far hipper than you'd expect at first. Titletrack in two parts goes all the way - magnificent lounge-folk rock-psych with "deep" vocals (and lyrics well suited for our current times: "Put a shade on your window / Don't let the world outside get to you / The view out there is getting hazy / Everybody's crazy / Could it be that I'm crazy too") & just when you feel it's been going on a bit too long, it breaks down into a total space trip with bubbling synths & other weird sounds, which in turn give way to the closing track, another moody highlight which again has a weird analog space key section. Very cool LP, can't see why this doesn't have more of a rep (or a rep at all, rather!).
Record: very nice G; light lines & scuffing only; micro warp nap.
Cover: strong F & displays well despite the following - some seam/spine/cornerwear; som ring/shelfwear; roughly half top seam has a neatly repaired split; bottom seam has a minimally budding split at opening; bottom corners have slight water damage; hard-to-see stains/soiling; very light wear f/b at opening.

Price: SEK 200 / $24

NEW! EXPANDING CIRCLE - Conscious (no label) USA 1980
Hippie folk slightly along the lines of Big Lost Rainbow (but better) or Tree People (not even close); rich instrumentation but sparse sound & often sounding several years earlier than actual release date. Has a bunch of intriguing instrumentals, especially "Weeping Window" is great. I dig side one, side two loses a bit of edge to my ears.
Record: VG+ with just some light paper scuffing - looks to have been played rarely at most; micro warp nap.
Cover: VG+; in shrink; a tiny bit of overall wear only.

Good private pressing in a UK-influenced folkrock/singersongwriter bag; acoustic & electric guitars, recorder, harmonica, bass, keys, drums, accordion. Listed in one of the early Pokoras. "The Magician & The Gypsy Boy" (excellent!), "The Piper", "Menorca" - I'm guessing back cover pic is taken at the latter.
Record: G; looks better & overall it plays a lot better too, but there's a hissing background sound in a few spots + between tracks; a few background ticks beginning of s1t1.
Cover: strong F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; stkr stain ofc; top seam's split all the way but neatly repaired & bottom seam has a couple of smaller splits repaired the same way; really small wobc; near-invisible scratch marks ofc; light cornerbends/bumps; minimal soiling; minimal wear f/b at opening.

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.
Cover: lower end of VG; mostly just some light overall wear, but downgraded because of some fraying/tears on back cover slick at opening &
a few marks (needle? teeth?) next to cc; drillhole.

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. Personally I don't understand how they ended up here less than a year after the excellent "Frost Music"... but the r'n'r guys out there apparently don't agree with me.

NEW! ROB GALBRAITH - Nashville Dirt (Columbia) USA 1970
Fine soulful countryfolk singersongwriter LP; has seen some rise in popularity the last few years, following Numero's "Damn It All" release. "Jezebel Of The Morning", "Corner Of Spit And Whittle", "Willie Was A Honkie" are telling titles here, but nothing touches his sole German Twin Classic "I'd Hate To Be A Black Man", from the 1972 LP by Jubal (which can be had for peanuts, by the way).

GEORDIE - Save The World (EMI) Sweden 1976

Brian Johnson's outfit pre-AC/DC. Cover design's pretty lame overall, but title lettering might be some of the worst I've seen on an LP from this time - looks like some bottom-of-the-barrel 80s rap thing.
Record: nice G.
Cover: nice F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; shop stofc; minor tears bottom back; small wofc; corners have some bends/bumps +

NEW! THE RICHIE GILBERT ENSEMBLE - same (Chestnut) USA 1978
Californian ssw/folk/folkrock with a truly lost/buried feel - very much out of place for its time & the cheap echoing/reverb-heavy recording adds significantly to this vibe. The full band tracks with female lead vocals remind me a bit of Homestead & Wolfe with that 60s-in-the-70s sound, but less refined. I dig the murky intensity that permeates the whole thing, but especially on tracks like "Train", "The Tried To Steal America". Rarely seen for sale.
Record: G; visually VG s1, G s2, both with light surfmarks only & overall playing's better than grade; light warp nap.

LENA GRANHAGEN - Sjunger Theodorakis & Biermann (Proprius) Sweden 1972

I always put in a minor rave for this... good value for your money if sligthly psychy folk is your bag - s1 is really good with eastern influences via tablas & electric sitar + flute, wah-wah etc. S2 is, naturally, more teutonic. Heavy session guys backing - Schaffer, J:son Lindh, Bandel a o.
Record: looks VG with some light surflines only, but as is always the case with this it plays with background surfnoise - an unavoidable part of the package here.

MARIAN HENDERSON - Cameo (Coral) USA 1970
Australian folkie with a sort of smooth, introspective vibe. Was a folk psych hype around this 20 years ago... which it failed to live up to, but it's a pretty decent record nevertheless, including a long cover of ISB's "First Girl I Loved",  here slightly re-titled to fit Ms Henderson's preferences. This US pressing has different cover art compared to the rarer Australian issue.
Record: strong VG+; a couple of light scuffs from higher grade - this hasn't been on a turntable much.

NEW! JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE - Axis: Bold As Love (Track) UK 1967

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.

HOLT & McINTOSH Inc. - Party Sound Á GoGo (TT) Germany 196?

Fine r'n'b-ish 60s rock exploito LP, pretty scarce actually. 'Lovesongs' might be the standout - excellent pop with nice vocals & a slightly bittersweet melody, but most of this is pretty good. Some duds too, but that sorta comes with the territory. Plenty of good bluesy lead guitar. Sounds a lot like an earlier incarnation of that early 70s exploito record with a 'Beat & Soul Inc.' in its name, with a drawing of the band ofc... full name slips my mind right now.
Record: nice G; very light surflines/scuffing only - plays fine. Tiny warp nap.

HOUNDS - From the Hounds With Love (Gazell) Sweden 1967
Gentle, dreamy pop/popsike, very UK-esque & underrated... sorta halfway between Hollies & Easybeats. Very nice opy here, most that you see have been around the block quite a bit.

H.P. LOVECRAFT - II (Philips) USA 1968
Oooh... towering acid psych giant, still way ahead of the pack. "At The Mountains Of Madness" in headphones is an otherworldly - if disorientating - experience. Swing pic in gatefold is magical as well, perfect illustration of the sounds.
Record: nice & shiny G; often playing a lot better than grade; slight warp nap.

NEW! 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.

Sorta heavy, southern-ish rock & very much of-the-times cover shot. They look/sound like a band that could've been local heroes in "Freaks & Geeks"!

NEW! KENNY HÅKANSSON - Beno's Ben (Silence) Sweden 1981
2nd solo LP has a completely different sound/vibe compared to the classic Kebne LPs or his "Springlekar" album (a revisited spaced-out "Resan" exempted) - much of this is dark & heavily electronic with lots of synth washes, effects, monotonous rhythms... must've confused his old fans a whole lot! In this day & age I could easily see this gaining some sort of cult status though. Predominantly instrumental & I'm reminded of Anna Själv Tredje, early Ure-era Ultravox at their least commercial & even some 80s Hawkwind; when vocals appear they're way weird & spaced-out. On top of all this there's also a strange electro-funky cut & a trippy, icy reggae-influenced number with a bent night club vibe... Opening tracks "Existensproblem" & "Yeti" are both awesome!
Record: G; paper scuffing & light surflines only.
Cover: G; some seam/spine/cornerwear: ring/shelfwear; shop stofc with an 'x' written on it; very small stain ofc; some bending/creasing; minimal wear ofc at opening. Original inner.

NEW! ISKRA - Jazz I Sverige '75 (Caprice) Sweden 1975
Debut 2LP set of free/avant jazz sounds with lots of ethnic sounds, connected to the Archimedes Badkar, Vargavinter, Spjärnsvallet scene, including some double-working members. "Iskra 1900" is 27 minutes long, no less.
Records: G; both look better, but there's surfnoise + a few pops 1st minute s1t1 & since parts are very quiet (others not!) some surfnoise etc is bound to come through in places, but it will also play a lot better than grade for big chunks of the time; micro warp nap disc 2.
Cover: VG; fo; just some rather light overall wear.
Price: SEK 250 / $28

STEPHEN JAMESON - same (Dawn) UK 1973

SCOTT JONES - Roads (Flight) USA 1978
Full band ssw with of-the-times sound/vibe; even slight prog vibes in a few places. Last two tracks s1 head in a different direction though, with 'Chattanooga To Lynchburg Trail' being rather haunting folk with sound effects at beginning, moody bass lines & neat acoustic guitar, and 'Gate To The Valley (Sha'ar Ha'amagim)' is a fine guitar instrumental.

NEW! MARC JONSON - Years (Vanguard) USA 1972
Promo copy of oddball singersongwriter, arty but in a kinda teen way - peculiar release for this label. I've always felt that several tracks here come across as prototypes for the Bobb Trimble sound, not least opener "Rainy Dues". Interest in this has been on the rise ever since it was featured in the back of the 1st AA & I believe a reissue came out somwehat recently too.
Record: G; looks better & overall playing better as well, but there's some occasional background surfnoise & a few ticks here & there; wlp.
Cover: strong G; downgraded because of some minor stains/soiling obc; also light seam/spine/cornerwear; really light ring/shelfwear; minimal beginning of a split bottom seam at opening; light cornerbends.
Price: SEK 500 / $56

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.
Cover: G; fo; downgraded because of ring/shelfwear, otherwise nice with light seam/spine/cornerwear, minimal cornerbump & not much else.

KEBNEKAJSE - same (Silence) Sweden 1973
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.
Record:
VG; light surflines/scuffs only. Like most/all Silence LPs, pressing's a bit so-so though.
Cover:
nice VG; some rather insignificant overall wear only + a shop stofc.
Price:

Perhaps my fave of theirs, esp the 13:07 "Balladen OM Björnbär Och Nätmelon" is truly great.

Scarce disco-funky-reggae LP with the expected stuff - hot rhythms, effective strings & brass, some heavy lead guitar, seductive/smooth
vocals, synths & percussion.
Record: strong VG; has papper scuffing from inner, but appears to be more or less unplayed.

Later pressing, probably late 70s.
Record: s1 VG+, s2 has a few marks, so VG.
Cover: strong VG+; a couple of light dings at opening & some faint rw top back, otherwise almost like new.
Price: SEK 80 / $9

NEW! KNÄCKEBRÖDERNA - Lyckosparken (MNW) Sweden 1976
Song-oriented rock with a faintly offbeat feel, although it's well-played & carefully arranged compared to most other Swedish acts of the day. The excellent "Janson & Von Hanzon" gets into a flute-coloured folky psych/prog mood & is the obvious stand-out track, but it's a cool LP all-through.
Record: VG; downgraded because of light scratches s1t5 (continuous pops for 2/3 of the track) & s2t2 (nothing), rest's close to EX.
Cover: downgraded to G because of small tears & stkr residue f/b at opening, apart from this a grade higher with very light seam/spine/cornerwear; minor ring/shelfwear; super-tiny stain ofc: a few light creases. Insert.
Price: SEK 200 / $22
knckebrdernajpg

KONTAKT - same (Glädje) Sweden 1973
Hopelessly lost & very obscure xian folky LP with five femme vocalists + guitar, bass, piano. "Ingenting" is the hit-pick with some pretty cool
bass work creating a laidback near-groovy vibe. Taking in this type of album in one sitting is a sure way to go mental; in fact last track, with its
organ, bass & tempo-shifts along with 'innocent' girl vocals, can probably put you in a strait-jacket by itself. If you'd stumble into a church where Kontakt were performing, you'd know immediately that brainwashing's the order of the day.
Record: F; surfnoise etc, but plays rather ok still; minimal warp nap.
Cover: G; seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; minor soiling obc; very light wear at opening f/b; bending & creasing f/b; light pen stroke obc; very light scrape marks f/b.

KRÄLDJURSANSTALTEN - Voodoo Boogie (Urspår) Sweden 1981
Experimental, freaky rock with possible influences from Beefheart, Zappa, Magma, weirdest Crimson... but sounding far less academical than any of those.

NEW! LACEWING - same (Mainstream) USA 1971
To my ears one of very best on the (overrated) label. A bit uneven, but several tracks have a really solid late psych sound, with a melancholic/moody undercurrent; songwriting, arrangements & mixed vocals at times remind me heavily of Anonymous.
Record: VG; looks very nice (came here graded as M-) & s1 plays fine, most of s2 does as well, but has some background surfnoise in places, most notable during the instrumental piano interlude.
Cover: P; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; top seam split all the way, bottom 2/3; pretty big tear bottom fc; stkr stains & slight residue ofc; light soiling & age-yellowing obc; faint creasing at spine; light wear f/b at opening; bottom has almost completely invisible traces of having been wet at some point.

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.
Price: SEK 50 / $6

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.

MYSTIC NUMBER NATIONAL BANK - same (Probe) USA 1969
Greasy r'n'b with some good guitar & occasional psych tinge, but a far cry from label mates Morgen & Saint Steven.
Record: s1 VG+; s2 is weirder - looks VG+ as well, except for t4 which has light marks but they don't do anything... on the other hand t2, with no marks, is noisy, esp 1st minute... in all a really nice copy bar that one track.

NEW YORK ROCK ENSEMBLE - Freedomburger (CBS) Holland 1972
I dig their Atco records, but on this - their 5th/last - they frequently sound like a different band (hence the post-n' Roll I reckon) with hardrock, prog & dreamy pop stylings side by side, a slightly quirky edge as per usual with these guys. (A lengthy sidenote: I bought a copy of their 2nd back in 1994, the selling point that hooked me & is worth repeating here being 'they sound like a cross between Family and Jerry Hahn Brotherhood' - how could I resist!)
Record: G
Cover: VG; very nice with just a tiny bit of general wear, except sealing stkr residue f/b.
Price: SEK 40 / $5

NORRBOTTENS JÄRN - Järnet (Manifest) Sweden 1976

2nd/last rocks out a bit more in places, femme vox is more strident & the whole thing is even more quirky than their 1st (avalable too - ask)

Their popsike LP with lotsa good(!) stuff on it, like the semi-title track, "The Hard Road Back", "That's Why I Cry" & especially the killer

THE OUTLAW BLUES BAND - same (Bluesway) USA 1968

Completely underrated freaky jazzy/bluesy psych which reminds me in feel, and occasionally in sound, of Free Spirits, Insect Trust etc. Cool lead guitar + lotsa wild sax, some flute & vibraharp too. A few nights ago I dreamt that I found a cover upgrade of this for myself, in the back of my neighbour's pick-up. I also found a 45 by Nova Local with my name on it, literally, and a sticker-sealed Jeff Cooper & Stoned Wings. Later in the same dream I was mugged by a knife-toting hoodlum, but I knocked him out cold. Peace & love, northern style. Black/blue label.

JIM PEMBROKE - Corporal Cauliflower's Mental Function (Love) Finland 1976
Offbeat prog LP with standard-length tunes (as opposed to multi-part prog epics) & in many ways this is more of an eccentric, arty pop LP, which track titles testify to: "Skobiit Party Civilised Session", "Earring Is Believing", "Goddammadog (The Horse)" etc.

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! THE PINHEADS - Rot n' Roll / Live (Garageland) Sweden 1985
3rd/last, recorded live but with better sound than the two above; punk vibes are less predominant here & title gives a good hint on what's on offer: intense, sweaty r'n'r with covers of Doors, NY Dolls, Seeds, VU, Elevators & more.
Record: EX; a couple of super-light surflines s2 do nothing.
Cover: very strong VG; downgraded because of a faint pink-ish tone to slight rw ofc (likely from having been standing next to the LP above in the shelves) + a tiny bit of really light soiling ofc. Apart from this there's just some really minor overall wear.

Crazy psych/garage/bubblegum concoction with cool guitar/organ + lots of effects; parts are in the same kid-Deep territory as Tea Company & such. "4th Dimension", "The Seance", "Mysterious Martha Garoo" + the odd duck out, "Gypsy Lady" which is a beautiful folk cut.

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

DON SANDERS - same (Mean n' Low ) USA 1972
Obscure TX counterculture singersongwriter/folkie private pressing, which I've seen compared to Country Joe. Side one is all songs, all but one with band backing & great all-through. Last track is an excellent slow, slightly droning thing. Side two mixes loner folk with a weird spoken word story. Track titles include "Open My Third Eye", "Kent State History Play", "Grunty Mind And The American Love Story". Cool & interesting LP, housed in a plain white cover. Considerably rarer than the 12" EP from the following year.
Record: VG; light lines/marks only. Tiny stkr stain on one label, small tear from manufacturing on the other.
Cover: plain white, as I said, and very nice.

NEW! SCORPIO BROTHERS - Iko Iko (Thimble) USA 1974
Rare latin/funk/psych LP, which at times sounds like a far trippier/heavier local NYC 4-piece version of Santana - check the 6:51 "Come Go To The Glory".  Another highlight is opener "Music Is Your Soul" which adds effects, moog, flute to the surging latino rock vibe, while the 9:30 "Freedom" goes into full-on hardrock mode. Originals & some pretty unlikely covers (most notably Andwella & Faith on Brown Bag!). Sleeve notes say that "Not unlike the Dead and Airplane froom the San Francisco scene of years ago, the Scorpio Brothers are a product of their environment" - and indeed this reeks of its 70s Bronx/Queens/Harlem street origins. Solid starter copy or a keeper to groove to in the same way it was once created (& seller before me actually had it as VG/VG). "Brothers and Sisters, Listen! Dance!". Great cover too.
Record: F; surfnoise of varying degrees, but not too much in the clicks n' pops departments; also some pressing noise(?) s2, but this is mostly audible between tracks. Overall a pretty decent spin still.
Cover: P; seam/spine/cornerwear; heavy ring/shelfwear; pieces of clear tape on both seams + top/bottom of spine; wear at opening f/b; light cornerbends; minor soiling/stains & age-yellowing obc.

Ltd split LP with one act on each side, both really good. Chasny does a sidelong evil drone thing, while Azul dive into the folk psych pool, with tablas, tamboura, wooden flute sp(l)iffing things up. Great artwork too!
Record: EX; looks like it's barely been played at all.
Cover: beautiful EX; absolutely minimal overall wear only; obi.

NEW! JOAKIM SKOGSBERG - Jola Rota (Subliminal Sounds) Sweden 2013
Re of 1971 monster LP, one of the few Swedish LPs of the time that really send me places; deep, trippy & mystical & for once "shamanistic" doesn't really ring false. Green vinyl version, I think there were no more than 200 copies made of this; inner sleeve with notes & pics.
Record: s1 VG+ ( a couple of tiny surflines), s2 EX. 
Cover: M-; in shrink; original inner.
Price: SEK 160 / $18

NEW! 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.
Cover: G; fo; light seam/spine/cornerwear; some ring/shelfwear; top seam 1st pocket has a 3.5" semi-ugly split from opening, 2nd pocket has a 1/2" split at top & even less at bottom, both at opening + top seam is discreetly split at spine as well; light age-yellowing & minimal soiling; light wear at openings.

NEW! ROSALIE SORRELS - What Ever Happened To The Girl That Was (Paramount) USA 1973
Excellent, soulful jazz-folk-blues LP; sits well next to another femme legend, Karen Dalton.
Record: s1 EX, s2 downgraded to VG+ due to a tiny bit of very light paper scuffing.
Cover: VG; very light seam/cornerwear (including what could be a sawmark - if so it's the tiniest one I've seen yet); ring/shelfwear, pretty much front-only though; really light cornerbumps. Original inner.
Price: SEK 80 / $9

NEW! 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

SOUTHWEST F.O.B. - Smell Of Incense (Big Beat) Germany 1988
Partial (some lost, some added) re of 1968 Texas psych/softrock; good version of titletrack, odd nude cover looks like it was originally designed for some Russ Meyer movie poster.
Record: s1 VG+, s2 EX.
Cover: EX; just a touch of really light overall wear.
Price: SEK 100 / $12

NEW! SOWER - same (Grand Trine) USA 1977
Old fave of mine - truly excellent NM hippie freak/drop out vibes & sound; it's weird, strange, spiritual & a must-have for any private press hound. Don't believe what less enlightened people might tell you & head over to Farm Faves instead, for a full rave on this lil' beauty & then come back here to buy it ("Buy it! Buy it! It's bad for you but buy it!").
Record: tiny needlemarks at the end of s1t2/beginning of t3 cause faint background noise, but apart from this it's a strong VG with light paper scuffing & a few light surfmarks only.
Cover: strong VG; light wear bottom seam; minimal cornerwear; minimal rw; small ding & really light wear ofc at opening; hard-to-see indentations/lines/pressing marks f/b; really small stain obc. Original inner.

NEW! THE SPACIOUS MIND - The Drifter (Trail) USA 2018
CD comp of scarce material from circa 1997-2005, housed in a neat trifold digipak with somewhat extensive liner notes from band scholar Wilmot Clawson. 1st ed sold out in a month or so & I don't think I have any left of this (certainly no more than one or two if so), but the preferable revised 2nd ed should be coming off the printers pretty much right now & copies will be me soon.
Price: SEK 120 / $13

Funky rock with falsetto vocals, mini-Moog, timbales, Hammond, horns, hardrockin' guitar solos... very much of its time/the opposite of timeless!

WYNN STEWART - same (Wrangler) USA 1962?
Pretty good country LP.
Record: looks solid VG, but pressing appears to be on the cheap side with some surfnoise between tracks; small tol s1.

Price: SEK 80 / $10

SONNY STITT - Parallel-A-Stitt (Roulette) USA 1968

STORM - Stormvarning (Harvest) Sweden 1974
Scarce & pretty good 1st by Swedish prog band; goes from jazzy & mellow to heavy & freaky - a prime example of the latter would be the excellent opener, "Lt. Calley Bjuder Upp".
Record: F; lots of light marks, lines etc, but nothing too serious & it's seldom worse than surfnoise/light background crackle between tracks & during the rather few quieter bits.
Cover: G; seam/spine/cornerwear; mid-spine has 1" of more wear; light ring/shelfwear; sealing stkrs f/b; pretty much invisible/99,9% removed initials ofc; some wear at opening f/b; faint cornerbending; some creasing in spots. Orig inner.
Price: SEK 150 / $18

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.
Record: VG+; very small marks s1t1,2 cause some really light & brief background noise.
Cover: VG; fo; some seam/spine/corner/edgewear; light ring/shelfwear (typicall heavy on this); light wear at opening f/b; spine's a wee bit flat; two pinholes bottom back right hand corner; tiniest beginning of a split top seam at opening.

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.
Cover: VG; downgraded because of back having been damp/wet at some point which has left a faint discolouration at top + a slightly wavy feel. Apart from this light general wear only; ancient price tag ofc + stereo stobc
Price: SEK 80 / $9

SVERIGES KOMMUNER OCH LANDSTING - Orosvisor (Kommun) Sweden 2009

Another fine release on Sweden's most prolific underground label; basement psych/prog, with trippy guitars & keys similar to those of Vilgot's, although this is folkier & almost all-instrumental. 300 copies only.
Record: New/unplayed.
Cover: New.
Price: SEK 180 / $21

Avant jazz trio with Sten Sandell on keys - I believe this was his first outing on vinyl.

NEW! TBC - Musik I Plast (Mjälthugg) Sweden 1978

Record:
  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.
Cover:
F; super-thin (think newspaper & then go down from there) & flimsy wrap-around cover has bends & creases, as well as a few tears - most critical one ofc upper right hand corner (see pic); also 1" split mid-bottom seam.
Price:
SEK 400 / $44

TEARS - same (Gazell) Sweden 1974

Scarce 1st from Swedish glamrockers; spacey production & melodic songs with a bit of late 60s UK feel.

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 100 / $12


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 100 / $12

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 500 / $60

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 60 / $9

NEW! 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
tin pennyjpg

NEW! T KAIL - Somewhere, Sometime (Jade) USA 1980
Odd bird here - a rare Minneapolis private pressing which goes into total San Fran sounds on side one, with mixed vocals & extended soloing, but is still as much of its time as it is a retro trip. The 80s vibes are however pretty cool even for someone like me, who usually can't take any of that era's production & sound values. Side two is less SF-derivative & more of a mixed bag, but it somehow hangs together well anyway. Sealed copy!
Record: sealed.
Cover: sealed; some minimal cornerwear & really tiny ding at spine.
Price: SEK 2000 / $222

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.
Price: SEK 100 / $12
tonytreecejpg

TRILOGY - I'm Beginning To Feel It (Mercury) USA 1970
Sort of folky, heavy rock - without being either folk or heavyrock - with west coasty vocal harmonies; perhaps a bit similar to the first Help LP. Also 12-string, flute, and Bernie Pershey from Lightning plays tablas on one track. Released right after the mighty Wizards From Kansas!
Record: EX apart from s2t2 which has some surfnoise, but you'll likely only notice at the very beginning. 
Cover: very strong VG; light seam/spine/cornerwear; very light ring/shelfwear obc; minimal split bottom seam at opening; one very gentle cornerbend; micro wear at opening f/b. Insert.

NEW! 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.

NEW! UNSPOKEN WORD - Tuesday, April 19th (Ascot) USA 1968

Record: very nice VG with some light paper scuffing only; light warp nap.
Cover: VG; fo; light seam/spine/corner/edgewear; minor ring/shelfwear; tiny ding top seam/edge; some very faint press or rubbing marks ofc, nearly invisible.
Price: SEK 150 / $17

UNSPOKEN WORD - same (Atco) USA 1970
2nd/last & very different from the 1st one - all soft psych studio refinement has been replaced by a west coasty bluesy rock sound; pretty good if not especially distinctive. 
Record: very strong G; really light surflines only.
Cover: nice G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; some ring/shelfwear; small stkr & stkr residue ofc; shop stobc; very light wear at opening f/b; some very light scratch marks obc; very hard-to-see stains ofc; a few light creases f/b.

EDWARD VESALA - Rodina (Love) Finland 1977
Good avant LP which opens & closes with - to me - surprisingly smooth femme vox seduction. In-between it's far wilder.
Record: VG except for small mark s1t1 which pops 10 times
Cover: strong F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; 1" ss mid-top seam; minimal tofc; small "R" wobc; light wear at opening f/b; some light bending & creasing; some very light soiling f/b. Original inner.

NEW! KEVIN VICALVI With Denis DeLaGorgendiere - Songs From Down The Hall (Starizon Studios) USA 1974
Sealed copy of another old fave of mine; a folk-pop-singersongwriter album with psych undercurrents & while it may sound deceptively simple at first, repeat plays will reveal a whole lot of depth & emotions, as well as plenty of cool arrangement details - from the spacey synths that pop up in places (not to mention the majestic 'tron sweeps on "Letter To Michael Henchard") to great guitar figures which add that extra something lacking in many similar LPs. Highly recommended!
Record: sealed. Very thin/flimsy vinyl & I've yet to see a copy which isn't slightly warped - this will likely be so too.
Cover: sealed.
Price: SEK 500 / $56

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. 
Record: nice VG; very light surflines only.
Cover: nice VG; very light seam/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; small split bottom seam at opening; slight crease ofc where slick meets cardboard; cvr's microscopically 'wavy'.
