THE BAND - same (Capitol) USA 1969

CHUCK BERRY - Live at Fillmore Auditorium (Fontana) Holland 1968

NEW! BLIND BLAKE - No Dough Blues (Biograph) USA 1971
Volume 3 1926-1929.

unavoidable noise from source material as well.

Price: SOLD

NEW! RANDY BURNS and the Sky Dog Band - Still On Our Feet (Polydor) USA 1973
And one more... the type of 70s records that contain some rather fine music but likely will never become collectable, which in the demented corner of the universe where most collectors reside means they won't get heard much either, just because they're NOT pricey... oh well.
Record: strong VG; some faint surflines only.
Cover: G; mostly just seam/spine/cornerwear + ring/shelfwear, not much else. Oh, cc too. Orig inner.

Record: VG+
Cover: VG+; fo; light overall wear only.
Price: SEK 40 / $5

NEW! CHAMBERS BROTHERS - Shout! (Vault) USA 1968
Pretty cool gritty r'n'b album; had they added some fuzz on a few tracks on the raunchier first side you'd see it described as 'funky black psych!!!' & with a far more respectable pricetag. But hey, "dig it for what it IS, man."
Record: G; lots of surflines & scuffing, but nothing deep/serious - plays rather nicely.
Cover: F; rather heavy wear all over, but far from trashed.
Price: SEK 50 / $6

Price: SEK 60 / $7

CHIMES OF RUSSIAN NORTH (Russian Disc) Russia 1991
What the title says...

Price: SEK 60 / $6

THE CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD (C.W.F.F.) DISTRICT No. 2 CHOIR - Sunrise Meditation (Peace) USA 1969
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.
Record: nice G; a few light marks & paper scuffing.
Cover: plain white cover with title & reference # written in ballpoint ofc.
Price: SOLD

LUIS CILIA - Meu País (Le Chant Du Monde) France 1974
Record: VG; looks a lot better, but there's a tiny bit of quiet background surfnoise here & there, might be a pressing issue?
Cover: VG+; multi-fo; really light/discreet tofc, otherwise very light overall wear only.
Price: SOLD

NEW! TIMOTHY CLOVER - The Cambridge Concept Of (Tower) USA 1968
Pop/psych/softrock & not too bad either - "One Day You're A Rich Man" & "Tear-drop Mobile" are definitely worth an extra spin or two.
Record: VG+; some paperscuffing but looks (and actually is) more or less unplayed.
Cover: strong VG; very light seam/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; really small cornerbumps; tiny bit of soiling ofc; light dings f/b at opening; drillhole.

Price: SEK 60 / $7

NEW! CONSTANT SOUND - same (Lysergic Sound Distributors) USA 2021

Price: SEK 250 / $27  ***HOLD***
contact trioJPG

NEW! CONTACT TRIO - Musik (Japo) Germany 1981
As above, but with a somewhat darker undercurrent - this should appeal to eclectic psych heads as well.
Record: beautiful EX, possibly unplayed.
Cover: strong VG+; old price tags + very light overall wear only.
Price: SOLD

NEW! COOKIN' MAMA - New Day (Rock Bottom) USA 1972
Overlooked Bay Area band with Sherry Fox from Oasis amongst its many members. A long time ago I saw this described as "Tripsichord meets the Sons Of Champlin" & as far as simplifications go, that one's rather decent. Pretty good all through, but some cuts - like the title track - really nail that west coast hippie rock feel. This is the yellow/blue label version, which now seems to be considered the very first pressing.
Record: EX; a tiny few pressingmarks/scuffs.
Cover: VG; some seam/spine/cornerwear; minor ring/shelfwear; fairly light cornerbends; light ding ofc at opening
Price: SOLD

Three track 12". Blue cover variant.
Record: G; mostly just surflines & scuffs.

cornerwear; light wear at opening f/b; hard-to-see stkr stain ofc.
Price: SOLD

RICK CUNHA - Songs (GRC) USA 1974
Solo LP from ex-Hearts & Flowers guy, in a ssw/folkie/countryrock LA/Nashville bag/sound. "Jesse James (Is An Outlaw, Honey", "Clinging To The Edge Of The World" a o.

DAMIEN - Shades From The Past (The Lost Tapes) (Kommun2/To The Death) Sweden 2012
2LP set (three sides of music, one etched) in doomy gatefold. Recorded in 1984-85, previously unreleased. I've not heard this, but it's obviously metal of some kind... one copy only.

Price: SEK 60 / $7


NEW! RABINDRA (DANKS) - All I See Is You (Takoma/Devi) USA 1973
Krishna folky rock; does everything right (spacey, droning synths, tablas, weird vocals, raga moves, mystical vibes etc) on the long brooding "Lord's Sweet Name", which just happens to be another old German Twin classic.
Record: very nice VG+.
Cover: super-strong VG+ with just some very, very light overall wear (unusual for this cover); fo.
Price: SOLD

DARIEN SPIRIT - Elegy To Marilyn (Charisma) UK 1973
UK pop/rock with a bit of an arty vibe, vocal harmonies & acoustic guitars up front; some neat, slightly dreamy tunes (like "It Isn't What You Have") & title track is a wee bit on the psych side of things. Could serve well as a companion piece to "White Faced Lady".
Record: sealed.
Cover: F; sealed with stkrs which also served as pricetags - there's a bunch of them on top of each other at opening, but also at top seam. Also seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; small toc; some wear f/b at opening; faint cornerbend + creases along seams/spine; very minor loosening of lamination f/b at spine; Marilyn's mouth is gone but some stkr residue remains.
Price: SEK 80/ $9

MILES DAVIS - Miles Ahead (Fontana) Holland 1958
Mono.
Record: visually F but very light surflines/marks only & plays more like VG; stain lbl s1 + a small stain on each run-out groove.
Cover:  strong G; downgraded because of name written top back & some light tears/fraying/creases on back slick at spine.  Apart from these factors it's a nice cover with light overall wear only.
Price: SEK 150 / $16
milesjpg

SPENCER DAVIS GROUP - Dimples (Sonet Grand Prix) Sweden 1967
Record: VG; obvious surflines s1 do nothing.
Cover: F; would be a strong G if it weren't for big writing top back, as with the above ink's removed, but shadowy outlines remain - not too
bad though. Apart from this there's minimal seamwear; minor cornerwear; scrapemarks on part of spine/front next to it; light ring/shelfwear; some tweaking & very slight loosening of lamination at spine; some wear at opening f/b.

DAWNWIND - Looking Back On The Future (English Autumn) UK 1997
Ltd re (300 copies) in re-designed cover of rare 1976 Welsh folkrock/singersongwriter sounds. Four guys on acoustic guitars, but also electric guitar & bass, harmonica, piano, mandolin, fiddle, vocal harmonies. Pretty nice record that creeps up on you with time, but it may sound a bit samey at first.
Record: EX
Cover: VG+; two rather minor cornerbumps, otherwise very light overall wear only.
Price: SOLD

DEEP PURPLE - same (Harvest) UK 1969
UK 1st press sans EMI-box on label.
Record: looks kinda weak G with lots surflines & a few minor scratches, but apart from slight background noise in a few spots, a bit more than that for parts of last track's orchestrated bit & "Lalena" which is noisy on & off, it plays fine; obvious warp nap.
Cover: lower end of VG; fo; very light corner/edgewear; slight loss/creasing of lamination on spine; light ring/shelfwear; light lamination wrinkle bottom front; some minor creases here & there; minor wear at opening f/b; small & near-invisble stain inside fo.
Price: SEK 80 / $9

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.
Record: looks EX, but has faint background surfnoise - apart from between tracks you won't notice much though.
Cover: G; seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; sealing stkr f/b at opening; minor wear f/b at opening; small & hard-to-see tobc; some gentle bends/creases.
Price: SEK 40 / $5

NEW! DINNES - A Place To Be (HBD) Sweden 1978
Obscure & weird private press which mixes sounds in an appealingly offbeat way & in its own way it becomes a perfect snapshot of local no-goods cluelessly doing a lil' bit of everything. 1st track, "Rainbow", is a spacey disco-ish thing that definitely will appeal to more eclectic psych/weird ears as it rolls along on waves of cosmic keys, funky guitar & echoing vocals. "Warmachine" gets heavier, with riffing guitars, faint organ & a strong basement psych feel. "Daylight Woman" is a slow, spacey cut with treated vocals, kinda like a not-quite-prog ballad. "A Place To Be" is the fourth stand-out, the type of track that sounds almost normal at first, but when you listen closely you realize there's more going on than you initially thought. The aaah-backing vocals remind me of Atz & Nedra Kilcher, in case you'd want a reference you didn't see coming any time soon. These tracks would've rendered the LP as a likely candidate for inclusion in a Sound Effects list, and the rest of the LP... well, that's a different story. Oh, and visually they're giving Fortune Teller a run for their money!
Record: G; some surfmarks, lines, scuffing, but nothing very serious - plays fine. Wrinkles ol s1.
Cover: strong G; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; stobc; some very light bends/creases; very light wear obc at opening; some super-light soiling.
Price: SOLD

AYNSLEY DUNBAR RETALIATION - same (Blue Thumb) USA 1968

Record: nice G; tiny mark s1 end t1/beginning t2 cause some noise, but overall playing better than grade; light warp nap.
Cover: very strong F; seam/spine/cornerwear; some ring/shelfwear; ss; light cornerbends/bumps; back cover slick is slightly off-center & because of this fraying at spine (quick paper knife fix-up would turn it into G!); punch hole.
Price: SOLD
aynsley dunbarjpg

NEW! EDWARD BEAR - Bearings (Capitol) USA 1970
Canadian mixed bag of decade turning sounds (released in Canada a year earlier than this US issue). "Mind Police" is a cheap psych thrill with its freaky mix of treated vocals, snakey lead guitar & heavy backbeat, but I've also always dug the loose "Toe Jam" quite a bit, even though it doesn't really go anywhere.
Record: G; light surflines only.
Cover: F; fo; heavy seam/spine/corner/edgewear; heavy rw; rest's mostly rather minor; fo.
Price: SOLD

NEW! ELDERBERRY JAK - Long Overdue (Electric Fox) USA 1970

EQUALS - Unequalled (President) UK 1967
1st from UK pop/r'n'b/garage band; check out "I'm a Poor Man" with great garage fuzz post-Satisfaction sound/vibe!
Record: looks F with plenty of light marks, but they're rather harmless & record plays WAY better than grade.
Cover: G; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; stkr residue ofc; wobc; light stains/soiling obc; very light wear f/b at opening; some minor bends/creases.

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.

Obscure band with an ex-member of the mighty Wilkinson Tricycle in their ranks. A bit hit & miss, but at its best they get a good psych/prog-light thing goin'/groovin' with plenty of cool guitar/organ action & some neat percussion on top.
Record: G; overall nice, shiny & playing fine, but some marks cause bits of noise (mostly on parts of s1t3 & s2t5) - not out of hand, but noticeable.

Soft singersongwriter, overly saccharine at times, but he has some great songs - I've always dug "Denver", "Son Jon" & "Daddy Don't Take Me Down Fishing" - and there's solid playing from Ashton, Gardner & Dyke + an uncredited Clapton. Wish they'd used the tablas on "Sailor" more though! Seems to have become more sought-after lately. Very nice copy.

NEW! KING-KONG - same (Sky) German 1981
Rather obscure kraut title with an odd sound including lots of electronics & robotic moves, right down to semi-spoken vocals, but there's also some highly unexpected harmonica on one song + one campfire acoustic guitar-based tune, as well as near-hardrock & mildly funky stuff. Housed in a suitably odd/great cover.
Record:
some light surfmarks/scuffs cause a bit of noise here & there, mostly of a background character but more noticeable during the very first few seconds s2t1, while are parts play pretty much perfectly... so say VG on average but less at times & better at others.

MAD LADS - In Action (Volt) USA 1966
Classic soul LP.
Record: G; looks better (& overall it plays better too), but has some rather minor pressing surfnoise here & there.
Cover: VG; a tiny touch of overall wear + a small stobc & name in ballpoint obc; a small split bottom seam at opening & a very faint/hard-to-see small stain obc. Front's amazingly clean for the vintage.

MALOUF TUNISIEN (En'Nagham) Tunisia 196?
Rare 10" mini-comp with Gharrad El Komri, Ikoulek Zaman El Azhar & Hosn El Idhar. Nice roch sound with mixed vocals, string & reed instruments, lots of percussion.
Record: 
one side G, the other strong F; both with light surflines/marks only.
Cover: 
F; minor seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; light bending & creasing + one more obvious crease mid-front; spots ofc have lost
colour - don't know how to describe it properly, but it's obious in pic below; some stains obc (one slightly bigger, but not that bad, and a couple of smaller/lighter ones which are hard to see); minor wobc; some wear & small tear ofc at opening.

LE MALOUF TUNISIEN (El Fen) Tunisia 196?/7?
Different from the above, this is a full-length 12" LP with - as far as I can tell - anonymous players. Excellent instrumental music with a wide array of string & reed instruments, some with percussion backing as well. Sparse performances with one or a few players at most. Very cool simple cover design, with slightly embossed print ofc, blank die-cut back.
Record:
looks strong F; lots of surflines & scuff marks, but very light ones only & apart from light surfnoise between tracks you won't notice very much.
Cover:
G; some seam/spine/cornerwear; minor ring/shelfwear; wofc; small price tag ofc; light soiling f/b; very small tobc; some bending & creasing - very thin, flimsy cardboard, so the latter seems more or less unavoidable.

MANFRED MANN - What A Mann (Fontana) UK (or is it Australia?) 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.

NEW! PAUL MASSE - Butterfly Lake (Liberty) USA 1968
Thick gatefold is perfect for the sounds within - kinda sappy/too serious flowery folk pop, but pretty charming still & at its best there's even a slight whiff of "Dreams & Images" to be heard.
Record: strong VG+.
Cover: lower end of VG; fo; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; ring7shelfwear; small tear/stkr residue ofc; light cornerbump; very
light wear obc at opening; very light creasing at spine.
Price: SEK 80 / $9

NEW! PAUL MASSE - Motels & Stations (Liberty) USA 1969
2nd/last loses most of the overdressedness & is more singersongwriter in sound, although his dead earnest vocal delivery still gives it a bit of crooning young man with a message feel. "High On A Hill" is excellent, with some neat flute playing & more of that's to be found on the equally great folkrocker "Where It's At", which also has some cool understated electric guitar. Overall a rather fun, overlooked record. "/.../ a man who lives from town to town, from motel to motel, gas station to gas station" claims the liners!
Record: VG+; a couple of faint surflines/marks hardly do a thing.
Cover: VG; minor seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; 1" split bottom seam at opening; some wear f/b at opening; cc.
Price: SOLD

VIRGILIO MASSINGUE - Viva Mocambique Independente (Gala Gala) Mocambique 1976
Rare original Mozambique release (this came out in Portugal as well, under a slightly different title). Fine LP in a sort of folksinger style, with various stringed instruments & percussion, long tracks.
Record: overall G & mostly playing very nicely, but s1t3 is F due to odd superficial (pressing?) marks which cause background crackle for half the track; also some sort light inaudible 'flames' on both sides.
Cover: G; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; light soiling/age-yellowing; light 'scratch' marks bottom front; very light wear ofc at opening.

TOUSSAINT McCALL - Nothing Takes The Place Of You (Ronn) USA 196?

Great 1967 soul/r'n'b with cool garagey lead guitar on "The Toussaint Shuffle" & "The Title Escapes Me". Red label version, not sure of exact year.
Record: VG+; some superlight surflines & scuffing, but this has rarely been played; micro warp nap.
Cover: strong VG+; in shrink; minimal overall wear + some light dings top seam & a few creases from manufacture ofc, otherwise a grade
higher; drillhole.
Price: SOLD

McCOYS - Infinite McCoys (Mercury) USA 1968
Their psych LP & pretty good it is too, in a sorta arty way. "Hell" goes there & doesn't come back... Sloopy dead & gone in the flames.
Record: F; looks a solid VG, but plays with light background surfnoise.
Cover: G; seam/spine/cornerwear; lots of ring/shelfwear; small split bottom seam at opening & top seam next to spine is stripped bare to cardboard; very light wear f/b at opening; tiny crease ofc at spine; drillhole.

NEW! SHELAGH McDONALD - (Polydor) Germany 1970
UK folk with strong vocals & a terrific backing band (including Mighty Baby members; plenty of strong songs too.
Record: VG; downgraded because of some super-light & nearly invisible hairlines - looks EX at a glance. Will play way better than grade.
Cover: very strong VG+; would've been a grade higher if it weren't for a really small tobc. Any other wear is completely insignificant.

Price: SOLD

NEW! LES MENESTRIERS - same (Vanguard) USA 1974
French folk band with medieval/renaissance influences/instruments & somehow this is enough for me to occasionally think of both Kaleidoscope & Emma Myldenberger when I listen to it. Maybe not quite as exciting as that might make you think though, but a pretty good LP. Bonus points for great paisley shirts on two of the guys.
Record: VG+

MISIKI GAMBIA Music Of The Gambia (Bussu/Sound News Productions) UK 19??
Very rare V/A LP with vocals, cora, sabarr, tama, riti... great stuff. I'm guessing it's a circa late 60s release. Mono.
Record: looks P, with lots of marks/lines etc, but nothing super-bad. Plays between P and up to VG (for a couple of tracks). Tiny warp nap.
Cover: lower end of F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; tofc; wofc; staining & soiling; bends & creases etc. It should be noted that it's a thin & flimsy cover & thus more or less bound to come with severe wear.

MOBY GRAPE - 20 Granite Creek (Reprise) UK 1971
UK original of great 5th & not-quite-swansong LP; it rocks hard, it's sweet, it's weird & it sounds like they could slide off the tracks at any moment & it all ends up as something very human & real.
Record: VG; inaudible tiny mark s1t2, rest's paper scuffing & very light surflines only.
Cover: strong G; minor seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; some light creasing & a really light indentation mark; very light corner bend.

THELONIUS SPHERE MONK - Monk's Blues (Columbia) USA 1969

Scarce re in new cover design of Left Banke-related 1969 psych-pop LP.
Record: VG; has lines & scuffs, but very light ones only.

NEW! CHRIS MOON GROUP - same (Kinetic) USA 1970
Overlooked bluesy, heavy rock with plenty of hot guitars & over-the-top vocals from Jeff Monn (album on Vanguard & ex of the Third Bardo). "Get Together Jim" is actually not terribly far from Fraction in sound.
Record: EX; a tiny few paper scuffs, but basically looks unplayed.
Cover: VG; in shrink (but it was obviously a re-seal); seam/cornerwear; bent/bumped corners; cc.

Cover: dust cover has tears & creasing f/b, most notably a 3" x 1" tear bottom back (see pics). Also some light overall wear, like near-invisible stains top front. Hardcover is in top shape & booklet is very nice too, except for a small spot at top of each page, where they had stuck together at some point, now gently separated & not a very big deal. Also some very light age-yellowing to pages. Original pocket holding the disc is in excellent shape.

MUSIQUES DU PÉROU Paucartambo Indiens Q'eros (Ocora) France 1986
Some truly out-there reed-based tracks (esp on s2) with humming/chanting vocals; interesting stuff going on both tonally & harmonically. Some percussion too & at times there's an almost free jazz-esque vibe to it - SO far from the watered-down versions of this music typically encountered when only scraping the surface. This 80s re has a different cover than the 60s/70s(?) original.

NEW! OUT OF FOCUS - same (Kuckuck) German 1971
Rare kraut LP, 20 years since I last had a copy & while that one came from a monster 10,000 piece collection, the bulk of which burned, this one involved a whole lotta serious heartbreak on my part just to be able to grab it & put it up here. Long story, but obviously you might be in for heavy stuff if you decide to go for it. And don't tell me that's not the best sales rap you've ever heard.
Record:
S1 VG+, s2 VG with just some light surflines. Plays nicely all-through with - at worst - some VERY minor background
surf noise (something which comes seemingly with all copies, including mint ones).
Cover:

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).
Cover: G; seam/spine/corner/wear; light ring/shelfwear; light wear f/b at opening; gentle bends/creases/wrinkles.
Price: SOLD

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.
Record: looks G with heavy paper scuffing - I spotchecked though & it plays perfectly; slight warp nap.
Cover: VG; light overall wear + gentle bending/creasing. Original inner.

NEW! POLIITTISTEN LAULUJEN PARHAAT (Eteenpäin) Finland 1971
Seldom seen & really cool Finnish comp, released on a Love sub-label. I'm guessing there's some sort of concept/theme at play here, but it's all lost on me apart from the fact that the whole LP hangs together really well with well-written songs & elaborate arrangements in a pop-rock-folk style which at times borders on sunshine pop, but there's also jazz & bossa influences, and strident femme vocals & an undefined but strongly Finnish edge keeps it well away from any cheesiness. Third track on s2 has a riff that could have been Hawkwind, had the setting been (very) different!
Record: s1 VG, s2 G with light surflines only.
Cover: VG; light seam/spine/cornerwear; light ring/shelfwear; some very light bending/creasing; small price tag ofc; minimal soiling.

RETSINA AND BOUZOUKI Greek songs of Love and Loneliness (HMV) Greece 19??
Very rare V/A 10" with Stelios Cazantzides, Yota Lydia, Polly Panou, Emmanuel Angelopoulos a o. Mixed vocals. I'd hazard a guess that it's an early 60s release, but I really don't have a clue. No matter what, it's a great 'authentic' record & some tracks - like the opener on side two - are downright excellent.

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 & 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.

NEW! SKY SAXON BLUES BAND - A Full Spoon Of Seedy Blues (GNP Crescendo) USA 1967
Sticking to useful buyer information, I feel obliged to reveal that the original owner of this eventually became the mayor of a small north-Swedish mountain town, before his premature death a few years ago. Not really familiar with his politics, but with a bit of Sky in his youthful head/veins I guess it can't have been all bad. Tatty copy, but somehow this goes well with the sleazy up-to-no-good sounds.
Record: F; lotsa marks/lines/scuffs, but it plays through & in a not too bad manner either; stol s1.
Cover: F with all sorts of blemishes - some writing, black tape on top seam, minor soiling etc etc, but nothing totally horrible.

NEW! SEOMPI - Summer's Comin' On Heavy b/w Lay On The Floor (Blackstar) USA 1971
Very rare 7" by legendary TX hardrock/psych/prog band. I got this & the one below from a local guy 20 years ago - he and his brother both bought doubles & triples of most things they liked, and since they lived in the same house they'd frequently end up with a whole bunch of copies & occasionally they'd come by my store to trade off a few. Anyway, these Seompis came from a find of unplayed copies & while I doubt the brothers had ever played either of them, I've spun them a total of maybe five times, tops, so rest assured they're both really nice examples!
Record: EX; faint inaudible surf scuff s2.

Pretty rare mono copy of solid bossa/latin jazzy grooves & one of the Waxidermy label faves; "Chant of Ossanha" is especially good.

nice G; a few light marks & scuffing only.

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 40 / $5


NEW! JUKKA TOLONEN - Tolonen! (Love) Finland 1971
Hadn't listened to this in full since, oh, the late 90s or so, but I gave it a spin now & was surprised to find that I sort of like it... much more creative & edgy than I recalled. Or, "Ramblin'" loses me because it sounds exactly like I thought the entire LP did, but all of the rest's pretty cool! 1st pressing.
Record: looks G with lots of light lines & marks, but nothing deep or serious & playback's VERY nice.
Cover: strong F; seam/spine/cornerwear; ring/shelfwear; light wear at opening f/b; some light bends/creases; very tiny cornerbumps; really light/small tofc. This cover is almost always worn & the copy here's no worse than what you typically see.
Price: SOLD

NEW! TRAFFIC - Last Exit (Island) UK 1971
Palm tree label pressing of awesome 1969 LP. I bought my first copy of this when I was 16 & fifteen minutes later I managed to smash my glasses. Blind owl that I am I could barely find my way back home & in order to get back to town that same evening, where there was a gig by some band I can't recall, I had to locate a spare pair but the only thing I found was the ones I wore when I was 12. Thinking I looked like a total dork I made sure I had my face covered by a wall of hair, until a friend said 'Hey, you look like Ray Manzarek in those glasses", which made things a wee bit better. File under unremarkable tales from crypt.
Record: G; plays WAY better.
Cover: G; fo; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; ring/shelfwear; light soiling obc; minor cornerbump; some faint bends/creases; small tobc at opening.
Price: SEK 120 / $13

NEW! TRAVIS - To Be As Free As You (Unity) USA 1975
Relaxed folk/softrock private pressing with 12-string, flute etc.  They should've done a laidback cover of the Carrie Nations' "Come Here The Gentle People"!
Record: VG+ because of light inner sleeve scuffing - but has been played just once, literally & by yours truly. Storage warp nap on my table.
Cover: very strong EX; in shrink; a really light cornerbump from being stone perfect.
Price: SOLD

NEW! CHARLIE TWEDDLE - Fantastic Greatest Hits (no label) USA 1974
Many of the records which have earned a great deal of their reputation from ancient Paul Major write-ups tend to leave me somewhat cold - I'm not terribly impressed by Fraction, Marcus, Grudzien, Trimble... but I do like Harlowe, Higney - and Tweddle. This one contains so many universes that you can have it on repeat for days without ever being able to encompass it all - backporch at sunset acid folk roots never did sound finer. Cover's up there with the best as well.
Record: looks a clean VG with mostly just very minor surflines, but s1 plays with some minor background noise + a very tiny warp causes a soft thump on intro grooves, but it's drowned out once the music starts (if you listen hard for it you'll notice it again at a later point, where music gets really quiet - but it's firmly of a VERY discreet background character). This side should be fully enjoyable by most except the stone mint fanatics. S2 has more surfnoise to the fore, due to its extremely quiet nature ('mostly the sound of crickets', if you recall) & is less fun to sit through (then again a bunch of you would probably never play this side anyway!). For what it's worth I've never heard (of) a copy that plays perfectly, seems some surfnoise is part of the fun here. And it's also worth noting that this came here graded as EX...
Cover: very strong G; fo; seam/spine/corner/edgewear; very light ring/shelfwear; top seam split 1" at opening, bottom 2" at middle,
small tobc; minimal wear obc at opening. Displays well!

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! GARY WINKLES - Next Good Warm Day (no label) USA 1978
Really obscure singersongwriter with a kinda shorthaired D.R. Hooker look & full band backing with some rural moves in places, but too clean to get that real haystack vibe rollin'. "Nudged From The Nest", "Gold Panner's Dream" a o. Nice cover.
Record: VG+; was sealed & played once, but nevertheless there are some faint scuffs etc - they do little/nothing though.

NEW! WIZARDS OF FIRETOP MOUNTAIN - same (Spliffen) Ireland 2015
12" five-tracker by stoney Irish hardrock outfit. Pretty cool black cover design (capturing this would be far beyond my photographic skills though) & label name/design is a funny-dumb take on Geffen.
Record: VG; some lines/scuffs, but very light ones only & most were probably there from the get-go, as is often the casewith new vinyl.
Cover: very strong VG+ with minimal general wear only; given the design I kinda doubt these would look any nicer even when brand-new. Orig black inner + insert & dl card.
