Ultra rare promo only recorded live at the Atlantic Recording Studios, December 7, 1977. 100% orig copy with matrices are LASS corrected into LAAS., not counterfeit turn around. Comes complete with a letter and return postcard from Atlantic Records. Cover is pristine, record hardly played with no sign of use. Though plays a bit crackle due to the pressing.
Legendary teen garage psych out of Upstate New York, and without doubt top rarest from this cult collectable label. Cover is Near Mint, still in shrink! Record has a few small marks that barely audible. Plays really great! I know Sealed copy sold $8000+ a few years ago. This is the best open copy for sell existence in the world now.
First pressing Liberty/UA rim label. Laminated gatefold cover is stunning Near Mint! There is a tiny faintest mark on the side one of disc two that affects minimal ticks but barely noticeable. Otherwise nearly pristine. And, disc one is simply flawless!
Always classic UK guitar psych monster! Cover has light to medium amount of lamination creases and streaks at top right and usual lamination lifting along the spine, but still nice keeper! Record is beautiful with a few faint marks that do not affect playback.
Underground doomy proto prog psych beast. Cover is quite decent with a few lamination crease and lifting. No seam split. Spine fully legible. Record looks nice with some pressing bubbles due to poor Middle Earth quality, plays through fine although a bit crackly in quite sections. But, almost all copies play never Mint as known by collectors and dealers.
Most bizarre real people album ever made in America. Not for everybody, but must for anyone into lounge psych or outsider music on the edge. Cover is partly in shrink, so it's OK looking at the first glance, but there is 4cm split on top seam from the opening and light yellowing/discoloration on the front/back panel near the opening edge. Also, some dirt on the shrink wrap, not on the cover itself. Record is pretty nice with a few faintest marks only that do nothing. Plays superb all round!
Another very obscure release from New York's small independent label with their lineup Collective Tools, Floss, and Blues Prism, this is split album featuring Badmouth and Double Axel on each sides. Badmouth is typical local bar band sounding with Badfinger-ish melodic rock. Double Axel has surprisingly good production plays proto-prog moves with terrific guitars leads and Hammond galore.
Japanese Orig first pressing comes complete with elusive OBI!!! One of the rarest Japanese Beach Boys album especially such a beautiful nick! Cover is very thin laminated flip-back style. Record is bloody red wax as issued, and it's glossy and clean with light surface marks mostly caused by paper inner sleeves, plays nearly pristine without any noticeable crackles. OBI is pretty tidy with small (1cm) starting split at top right. Includes lyric insert in nice nick as well.
Quite unique Pacific Canadian bizarre outsider private pressing by multi track recording with several lead vocalists including male and female. Songs are pretty varied and weird, from twisted folk rock to eastern acid psych, and from slight newwave feeling to reggae moves. Mike also sing one track which is amazingly doped!
Quite decent Stereo orig with blue lined inner. Cover lamination is glossy with light sign of use. Record has a few inaudible minor marks only, plays brilliant! Definitely better than average copies occasionally turned up on internet auctions.
Large Swirl label comes in matt gatefold cover with "Big Bear" credited on the inside first pressing. Front cover is super clean without typical rubbing on the picture. As well as back has no ring wear, and the inside is Near Mint, although there are light to moderate mildew spots visible mostly on the rear. Spine and seams are solid and the opening edge is straight. Overall pretty clean cover indeed. Record looks like played only a few times, vinyl surface retain shiny and beautiful. Swirl inner includes but has some light brownish spots, too.
Embossed box cover comes complete with reverse Swirl inner and elusive poster. Box cover has usual laminate lifting around the embossed words, and some crease on the flap. Record has some surface scuffs but plays great all the way through. Poster is Near Mint unused condition!
This is their third album and the last effort, and definitely their best in prog and psych directions than previous albums. Less folky but more rockin' and adventurous with electric guitar outburst, organ pumping, high soaring flute, powerful rhythm sections, and very complex and mysterious lengthy tracks. Flimsy cover is nice except light to moderate discoloration on the back which is typical for old South American record. Otherwise it's really decent with well protected by outer plastic sleeve (you can remove it off if necessary). Record is very clean with only one or two visible scuffs, but plays with some surface noise due to notorious low-tech pressing. Though you can't find true Mint or Near Mint for this. Still the best copy for sale exist.
Italian answer for Elton Dean, Maurizio Giammarco controlled jazz rock fusion in Soft Machine influential. Fiar amount of light stain spottings on the cover, but it's typical for this cover. Record plays with minor crackles on some passages, but nothing too obvious.
Pioneering of Finnish underground psych blues rock, and members are later involved in Wigwam and Tasavallan Presidentti. Orig big heart mark logo on the labels housed in laminated cover. Cover has some lamination bubbling and small crease to edge, but still decent example for such a flimsy material. Record shows minor sleeve pattern that do nothing.
Another favorite of mine, still unknown weird psych outsider out of Michigan featured surprisingly heavy fuzz wah actions, spooky proggy synth abruptly thrown in, off centered odd harmony vocals. They displayed all they want, ranging from Stooges alike garage punk rocker to rural folk stoner to outer space cosmic instro to Neil Young-ish West Coast psych. And, even more late night AOR boogie which I like a lot. Though it's not messy, totally unique DIY job at all. Not for folks who want something polished. But, it's real grower for me after a couple of spins.
Very weird mellotron avant-garde psych outsider with dark disquieting piano and ritualistic occult percussions. Double LP housed in unlaminated gatefold cover. Known as notorious bad pressing, so there are some background noise here and there, even brandnew copies play like this.
One of the best Canadian folk psych garage with dreamy twilight vibes. Cover is super clean example for it's age. Record is nice as well, but there is a few light pops on the beginning of side two caused by pressing flaw. Nothing serious at all. It's typical for small Canadian pressing. The rest plays nearly perfect!
