Really clean orig of killer Italian heavy prog gem. This cover always worn out or damaged, but the one offering here is the best I've seen last 10 years! No ring wear, splits, or tears! Has inner sleeve in Near Mint nick as well. Record has usual sleeve marks as almost all copies do, but actually lesser marks than average. Much better looking for this one, and plays Near Mint all around!
First German pressing comes in embossed gold cover with insert. Cover is tidy with light general storage wear mostly along the edge. But, no ring impressions or seam splits. Overall nice example for this title. Record is pristine and labels virtually no spindle marks!
Mega rare white label promo! Gatefold cover is nearly spotless with a promo sticker still intact. Both records are clean with some superficial scuffs on second disc but both play excellent or better. Includes triple foldout insert that somehow suffered H2O damage, so there are light brownish stain and wrinkling on lower area.
Holy Grail of German dreamy prog with high pitched haunting female vocals and brilliant backing. As good as Mellow Candle for sure. This is genuine orig housed in fully laminated cover and ST 850004 matrix. Cover looks like brand-new, final upgrade! Record is pristine, too! There are a couple of extremely light marks on side two visible only under bright light. Of course they do not affect play at all. Plays Top!
Bizarre Xian psych weirdness out of Houston, Texas. With male/female vocals, piano, organ, harpsichord, acoustic guitars, trumpet, etc.. but heavy fuzz leads and primitive drumming are outstanding! Spooky keyboards reminds me of Concrete Rubber Band although more into D. LeMieux and Jeanne Peters directions. Record looks clean but pressing is not hi-fi as cheap budget vinyl.
Floyd influenced doped organ psych prog from Quebec housed in acid leaking mushroom cover art. Side one is clean with a couple of tiny marks that make a few light ticks, side two has several light hairlines that barely affect playback.
Their previous debut called "Aurora" on Futura is into Avant-Garde or Free Music,. This one is less Experimental but more into Jazz with cosmic spacey prog elements with eery female talking vocals. Very unique in sounds, and definitely their best of all three.
Special 4 foldout gimmick cover comes with insert. There is a little damage on die-cut area, but overall nice and intact. Light brownish stain from tape removal along the bottom seam. Another light brownish stain on the front top right. A few tears from stickers removal on left-hand that neatly re-colored.
The last effort of crude heavy blues psych trio. Cover is tidy with light imperfections. Impossible to find a better! Record looks and play great except one tiny mark on B-1 that affects light ticks for 14 times or so. But, overall it's still very nice example for those South American records.
Only 99 pressed cult UK garage psych grail all the time! Their first effort in orange cover (dead tree) is widely known as big ticket, but this second title is actually much rarer than the first in my opinion. Seen the first one sold around GBP 10000 several times in 2010's, but never seen the second one sold publically in last 10 years. Especially copy like this outstanding nick! Handmade looking very fragile cover is tidy without major issues. There is a small name on the front top right. Some light wrinkles and crimples on the cover caused when manufactured. Otherwise cover is amazingly nice with minimal shelf wear on the rear! Record is fantastic! There are a few faint marks only visible under bright light. And of course they do not affect playback. Labels are beautiful with minimal amount of spindle marks. Pressing is not hi-fi though. So, perhaps you might hear occasional minor pressing noise in quiet sections. Other than that it plays brilliantly!
Cult weird psych folk. Gatefold cover is in pretty much decent nick with minor shelf wear and small corner crease. Spine fully readable without usual rubbing. Record has a few faint sleeve marks that do nothing. Comes with insert (small tear to the edge, but no other major issue). Not for Mint fanatic, but it's actually very nice condition indeed!
Pre-Warren Winter's Band who made amazing album called "Crossbar Hotel" in 1988. Edward Winterhalder aka Warren Winter is song writer and biker, and he plays all guitars and keyboards except drums on this album that recorded between 1977 and 1980. Great acid folk rock with delicate song writings, dark downer vocals, and lost 70's vibes. Cover has light ring wear on the front and moderately top seam rubbing. Though rear cover is nice.
Large Swirl label with Philips Record Product on the bottom. Gatefold cover is not Minty, but really clean as you can expect. In fact the best I've seen in last 5 years. Record is clean as well. Haven't played so much. There is a light mark by finger nail on side one across track 5 & 6 which does not create any noise! Plays Near Mint all the way through! Includes Swirl inner.
Only 300 made, mega rare private local Metal from Kentucky with massive dual axe and outlaw gritty vocals. Has light H2O damage with slightly brownish stain on the front bottom left and some color loss on the back bottom right. Record is in nice condition with some inaudible minor marks only. Comes with insert.
Top notch Scandinavian hard prog psych with really stunning fuzz assaults from the start to finish! True great gem, and must for anyone into underground music. Fragile foldout cover with extra page attached to the inside. Has a small chip to top left corner that looks like small corner cut. Some creasing to bottom right corner. Other than that cover is still decent and definitely keeper copy for most unless you are desiring Minty cover (if it exists!).
Commemorable first release of Japanese cult independent label Vanity, electronic psych prog pre-wave sounding with droning synth and guitar interplays and subtle oriental mysticism. Bottom seam middle split around 9cm, but otherwise cover is clean and quite decent. Record is Near Mint all around!
Textured gatefold cover is in strong EX condition with a tiny dot tear on the front bottom probably caused at the pressing plant and light ring wear on the rear, but there are no obvious issue. Corners are tight, square and seams are solid without color faded on the spine. Overall much better than usual secondhand copies appears on market. Record is really Top. Comes with black inner.
Rudy Passonno was a keyboard player in obscure local Missouri prog band called TOPPER who released one and only album in 1977. "Mama Mama" is not kinda prog or AOR like Topper, but more into DIY downer synth Pop with sad melancholic melodies. Maybe folks who loves McElroy Bros., Chuck Senrick, or Dialogue should grab this.
Ultra rare Danish underground prog influenced by Procol Harum, Indian Summer, and Still Life) with swirling organ and intense guitars. Extremely fragile cover has small stain on the rear middle, and light crease upper left-hand. Other than that cover is in brilliant condition! Record has some light although visible scuff type marks on the surface. It seems they do not affect play, but pressing is kinda lo-fi for infamous Spectator records. So, even you luckily found Near Mint looking copy, it must be play with some background crackles.
Mail order only orig first pressing housed in foldout poster cover. Cover is great nick with minimal crease only. Record is clean without any scratches or visible scuffs. There are some light sleeve pattern on the vinyl surface from long storage. Plays throughout fine on side one. Though plays a bit crackly on side two due to poor pressing.
Very obscure Japanese outsider psych weirdness with heavy distorted fuzz ripper as hell, bent freaked-out tracks, downer folk moves, and some strange pop or reggae oriented laid back tunes. Totally odd, but overall worth to spin it in the unique atmosphere reminds me of UK Holy Ground albums or another Japanese private called "Brush". Includes foldout insert with lotsa photos.
Dutch orig Mono pressing. Cover is pretty neat with slight writing on the rear top right. Record has some small marks, but no scratches or ugly marks. It looks like well preserved, and plays fantastic with occasional static that nothing detracts music pleasure.
Legendary Norwegian psych hipster featuring young Terje Rypdal. As name tells it all, fabulous fuzz and reverberate organ drenched acid heavy rock meets blues, jazz, and flower power! Fragile cover is nicest possible condition with light storage wear and small crease around the edge. Record has some surface marks and small scratches. Plays mostly fine with minor surface noise and occasional faint crackles. Forget about NM copy which I've never ever seen! This copy is way better than average. I've seen beat up copies more.
