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.
First pressing numbered SKL 5052 on both cover and labels. Also, this is very early cover variation with "If I Had To Do Itc" credit on the spine and rear top. Cover has a small tear, crease, and lamination streaks on the front, and some light staining on the rear. Record has some light marks and surface scuffs, but no scratches or ugly marks. Plays through fine with minimal ticks only.
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.
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.
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.
As same label as mighty Univers, this is second rarest from this label. Heavy guitar driven hard rock with some prog tendency key/moog actions. Recommended to fans for obscure hard rock similar vibes to Cool Feet and National Flag. Flimsy cover has tiny bit of lamination flaking and paper loss to corners. Printed inner paper sleeve is rarther crinkle and has seam splits. Record has light to medium amount of surface scuffs, plays great with occasional light ticks that nothing over powered to the music.
A few hundred made of ultra rare hard psych LP from Illinois. Really good killer guitar assaults, swirling heavy organ, thundering rhythm section, a few melancholic songs with nice acoustic throw in, and vocals are very strong. True nice example for border of hard rock and psychedelic music. Comes is plain white cover with track listing/info sheet pasted on the front. Completely vanished lately!
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.
One of the highest Euro jazz collectable item, legendary his first album in amazing tri-fold cover. Cover itself is OK condition for it's ages, but the inside album pocket has some crease along the opening, long streak on the right-hand cover, light to medium damage and paper flaking on the upper right-hand spine. But, most would know this cover is always trashed. So, it's still keeper for sure. Good news, record looks like Mint unplayed! Though minimal surface noise on the very beginning of each sides due to old vintage vinyl, so I would call E+ to be more accurate.
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.
Mega rare French underground psych exploitation with full tilt burn out fuzz attack and organ roar. Flip-back cover has moderately discolored on the back by numerous of light brownish spots, but front lamination is still glossy with one tiny 1cm rip at the opening edge. Impossible to find in any conditions!
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.
Rhythmic rural guitar blaster with astonishing drum tilt, solid leads and powerful songs. Front cover has medium wear while back cover is clean except a small amount of surface tear at the opening. Record shows some visible light marks that hardly audible. Plays strong all the way through!
Their rarest on Swirl Vertigo label housed in gimmick die-cut gatefold cover. Cover has some minor wear to corners, but overall still tidy and crisp. Record is hardly played with minimal spindle marks on labels. There is a faint surface line on side two that does nothing. Comes with Swirl inner with usual wear from ages.
