UPDATED February 7th, 2021

1. The ACTION: “The Ultimate Collection” (Edsel Records – ED-101) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Excellent). First original press issue of Action singles. The Action was pre-Mighty Baby. This is a fine UK pressing copy of a 1990 comp by UK mod group the Action. The record includes all five of the band's '65-'67 singles along with four previously unreleased tracks from the period. The Action is known among collectors not only for their own fine high-energy soul-based songs, but also for morphing a couple of years later into the psychedelic outfit Mighty Baby. Just a fantastic compilation of otherwise bloody hard to get single issues. Price: 25 Euro
2. AOYAMA MICHI: Manhattan Blues – Onna Blues b/w Otoko Blues – Jonetsu No Hatoba” (Crown Records – LW-1115) (4 Track EP Record: Excellent/ Flip Back Picture Sleeve: Near Mint). First original pressing from November 1967 in great condition. Absolutely ear-blisteringly awesome four track EP by Aoyama Michi, the unsung queen of the soulful rock bottom Enka blues with a voice that seems to emanate out of the darkest depths of the bottom of the well. The lid is off, Aoyama emerged, singing in a highly like a wintered through witch singing from out of the grave. She is deep, her parental Afro-roots blood lineage also seeps through and give her that soulful character no other Enka singer ever possessed. The backing is fabulously executed, giving the whole an extra deep resonating dimension as if it came from beyond the depths of the ocean. Listening to Aoyama just makes the hairs on your neck rise up, while you desperately make a last run for that strychnine syringe in order to administer that last fatal shot towards heaven and subsequently hell. This one throws together 4 tracks that initially appeared on 4 different single issues. Still a tough one to unearth in nice shape so….go for it, you won’t regret it. Price: 40 Euro

3. AYLER, ALBERT: “Spiritual Unity” (ESP Disk/ Nippon Phonogram – 15PJ-2012) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Top condition Japan press issue of one of the best records ever recorded. SOLD

4. AYLER, ALBERT: “Nuits De La Fondation Maeght – Vol. 1” (Shandar – SR-10.000) (Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint). Legendary and necessary ear candy that needs a home in any collection. Original French 1st pressing on highly collectable label. SOLD
5. AYLER, ALBERT: “Nuits De La Fondation Maeght – Vol. 2” (Shandar – SR-10.004) (Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint). Legendary and necessary ear candy that needs a home in any collection. Original French 1st pressing on highly collectable label. SOLD
6. AYLER, ALBERT: “New Grass” (Impulse – AS-9175) (Record: Excellent/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent). US original press of classic Ayler slide. SOLD
7. BAD BRAINS: “Quick Take Over” (Blitz Records – BB79) (EP Record: Near Mint/ Picture Sleeve: Near Mint). 1989 privately released outtakes, with tracks “Pay To Cum”, recorded in the studio sometime in 1980 and “Supertouch”, “Pffft” recorded live somewhere in 1979. Price: 25 Euro

8. BROWN, MARION: “Geechee Recollections” (Impulse Japan – IMP-88144) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent – has some mildew spots/ Insert: Near Mint). Marion Browns 1973 classic for Impulse! Japan original WHITE LABEL PROMO issue!!! A surprisingly hard one to dig up with obi…for an otherwise easily attainable record. The obi though, first one I have in over a decade. Geechee Recollections is filled with laid back southern summer feelings with a deep African vibe. Brown hit a very different vibe than on his earlier ones and his ESP sessions -- as he seemed to absorb a lot of strong AACM-oriented influences, which mellowed his approach nicely, and gave him a strong spiritual side. On this great set from 1973, Brown plays with AACM-ers Steve McCall and Leo Smith, as well as Jumma Santos, William Malone, and Bill Hasson. Two tracks are spare, beautiful solos (with a hint of Maurice McIntyre lurking in the back) -- and other titles include "Buttermilk Bottom", "Once Upon A Time", "Tokalokaloka", and "Karintha". Earbleedingly beautiful mixture of free jazz moves, poetry, brimful with poetic resonance, making that it stands shoulder to shoulder with the best records of that golden era. Endowed with beauty and unexpected twists and turns, Brown music is filled with occasional haunting echoes racial tensions and fire-breathing sonics. Total killer slide, long overlooked and due to regain mass-appreciation. Clean copy, this record will enlighten your sorry-ass existence, take my word for it. Rare white label PROMO!!! SOLD


9. BROWN, MARION: “Afternoon Of A Georgia Faun” (Odeon – OP-88011) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: VG++). Scarce Japan original 1st press issue – WHITE label PROMO. “Difficult as it may be for younger listeners to believe, there was a time when ECM released adventurous improvised music. Back near its inception in the early '70s, the label issued a wide variety and decent number of challenging avant-garde recordings that represented some of the most forward-looking musical thinkers of the time. One of these was Marion Brown, who, at the time of this session, was about midway between his extreme post- Coltrane explorations and the luscious, down-home evocations of Georgia that he would create for Impulse! over the next few years. He gathered 11 musicians, including a couple from the then current Miles Davis Bitches Brew band (Chick Corea and Bennie Maupin), the then little-known Anthony Braxton, Andrew Cyrille, and the late great vocalist Jeanne Lee for two side-long, wide-ranging pieces. The first, the title track, is a wonderful, percussive evocation of pastoral Georgia, something along the lines of what the Art Ensemble of Chicago were doing around the same time, but without the satire and with a greater sense of serenity. As the flutes, reeds, voice, and piano enter, there is no idea of "soloing"; instead, each contributes to the ongoing, evolving texture of the piece, creating a fabric that's as cohesive as it is unplanned. The remaining cut, "Djinji's Corner," is a bit more fleshed out, a little more "traditional" in one way, though still quite unusual for the time. Again, a reference point might be Art Ensemble works from around the same time, here a mélange of free horns and intense percussion, with Jeanne Lee soaring over the top, mixing words and glossolalia, similar to her stellar work on Carla Bley's Escalator Over the Hill. The effect is more eerie and spiritually infused than the preceding piece, with keening, bowed cymbals and deep pulses from the lower clarinet family. It gradually builds to something of a frenzy, but in an unforced manner that shows it to be merely another approach to the territory explored earlier. Afternoon of a Georgia Faun is a lovely, inspired album, a key work in Marion Brown's oeuvre and a recording that belongs in any collection of contemporary jazz.” (All Music Guide). Rarely seen Japanese press original. Price: 35 Euro

10. BUDDY GUY: “The Best Of Buddy Guy” (Victor Records/ Chess – SWX-6131M) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Absolutely top condition Japan very first original press issue all complete with insert and obi of classic blooze slide. Pristine as a virgin’s ass with a pulsating line of Charlie on. Price: 30 Euro

11. BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY: “S/T” (Mainstream – S/6099) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Excellent ~ Near Mint - has a faint trace of ringwear on upper side, neglectable). Original US first pressing, stereo copy. Price: 40 Euro
12. BOW WOW WOW: “Teenage Queen b/w Elimination Dancing” (RCA – RPS-73) (EP Record: Near Mint/ Poster Like Gatefold Picture Sleeve: Near Mint/ Company Inner Sleeve: Near Mint). Beautiful Japanese original press issue of classic UK post punk slide. Love the artwork on this one with Annabel flashing all her colors and assets. Always had a soft spot for Bow Wow Wow!!! Price: 25 Euro
13. BRAXTON, ANTHONY: “S/T” (America – 6122) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Classic early Braxton from 1970, initially only released in France. This is that 1st original pressing in top shape. Price: 25 Euro
14. CHARLATANS: “The Ones Who Started It All” (Shark – Shark001) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Amazing LP by Frisco’s finest. Unreleased recordings by the Charlatans dating back to 1966 ~ 1968. Codeine and the rest, killer no filler. Has been a while since I came across a copy of this one. In need of a massive re-appreciation. Price: 30 Euro
15. COLEMAN, ORNETTE: “Science Fiction” (CBS Sony – SOPL-18) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Japan original pressing in top shape. One of Ornette Coleman's best recordings from the 70s – and like his other album for Columbia, quite a change from the freewheeling sounds he was blowing over at Blue Note! The style here is a bit more high concept, but in a good way – with all the edges that Coleman had developed from the late 50s onward, brought into tighter focus for the Columbia setting – given a bit more complexity, although still with plenty of room for freedom – and played both with a smaller combo, and a slightly larger group. The mix of players is as striking as the sounds on the record – and includes Coleman on alto, trumpet, and violin – plus Dewey Redman on tenor, Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Bobby Bradford on trumpet, Jim Hall on guitar, Cedar Walton on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins and Ed Blackwell on drums. Asha Pulthi sings a bit on the larger ensemble tracks – making a rare appearance here before her 70s soul career in Germany. Highly essential! SOLD
16. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Dakar” (Prestige/ Victor Records – SMJ-7312) (Record: Near Mint/ Fragile Flip Back Jacket: VG++ ~ Excellent). Damned rare very first Japan original pressing in great shape. Dakar (1957) presents half-a-dozen numbers recorded April 20, 1957 by an ensemble credited as the "Prestige All-Stars." On the bandstand for this date are John Coltrane (tenor sax), Cecil Payne (baritone sax), Pepper Adams (baritone sax), Mal Waldron (piano), Doug Watkins (bass), and Art Taylor (drums). Although at the time these were considered "leaderless" units, upon hearing the interaction of the participants, modern ears might desire to qualify that statement. Japan very first press issue that came out in the early 1960s. Price: 75 Euro

17. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Africa / Brass” (Impulse – YS-8501-AI) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Japan later press issue Impulse pressing all complete with obi. Pristine top condition copy and all complete! Stunning Japanese pressing to be housed in a gatefold sleeve. Coltrane’s first release for the Impulse label. Rare Japanese pressing that sounds fantastic. They are getting damned scarce these last years and hardly ever turn up any more as clean as this one. Archival copy. Price: 40 Euro

18. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Impressions” (Impulse Records – YP-8522-AI) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint/ 2 inserts: Near Mint). Top shape with obi Japanese pressing of classic Coltrane slide. SOLD

19. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Coltrane” (Impulse – YS-8502-AI) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Japan insanely cleanl Impulse pressing complete with obi & insert. Considered by many to be his finest single album, Coltrane finds John Coltrane displaying all of the exciting elements that sparked brilliance and allowed his fully formed instrumental voice to shine through in the most illuminating manner. On tenor saxophone, he's simply masterful, offering the burgeoning sheets of sound philosophy into endless weavings of melodic and tuneful displays of inventive, thoughtful, driven phrases. Coltrane also plays a bit of soprano saxophone as a primer for his more exploratory work to follow. Meanwhile, bassist Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones, and especially the stellar McCoy Tyner have integrated their passionate dynamics into the inner whole of the quartet. The result is a most focused effort, a relatively popular session to both his fans or latecomers, with five selections that are brilliantly conceived and rendered. Sounds fantastic!!! Perfect condition – impossible to ever upgrade upon. SOLD

20. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Transition” (Impulse – IMP-88115) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Top condition Japanese press issue. “Recorded in June of 1965 and released posthumously in 1970, Transition acts as a neat perforation mark between Coltrane’s classic quartet and the cosmic explorations that would follow until Trane’s passing in 1967. Recorded seven months after the standard-setting A Love Supreme, Transition’s first half bears much in common with that groundbreaking set. Spiritually reaching and burningly intense, the quartet is playing at full steam, but still shy of the total free exploration that would follow mere months later on records like Sun Ship and the mystical atonal darkness that came in the fall of that same year with Om. McCoy Tyner’s gloriously roaming piano chord clusters add depth and counterpoint to Coltrane’s ferocious lyrical runs on the five-part suite that makes up the album's second half. In particular on "Peace and After," Tyner matches Trane’s range of expression. The angelically floating "Dear Lord," a meditative pause in the album's center, holds true to the straddling of the line between modes of thinking and playing that define Transition, not quite as staid as the balladry of Trane’s earlier hard bop days, but nowhere near the lucid dreaming that followed. Only nearing the end of "Vigil" does the quartet hint at the fury of complete freedom it would achieve later in the year on Sun Ship or even more, provide a precursory look at terrain Coltrane would explore in duets with drummer Rashied Ali on Interstellar Space in 1967.” (All Music Guide). Comes dead cheap. Price: 30 Euro

21. CRASS: “Reality Asylum b/w Shaved Women” (Crass Records) (Single Record: Near Mint/ Poster Sleeve: Excellent). Shortly after the release of The Feeding Of The 5000, Crass released their debut 7" single on their own record label - Crass Records - for the princely sum of 45p. Being so cheap, how could anyone not buy it? Reality Asylum was a version of the song that the pressing plant in Ireland had refused to deal with when due initially to go on Feeding Of The 5000 and after hearing it, it was very easy to understand why it had caused offence. Sung - or rather, spoken - by yet another Crass member going by the name of Eve Libertine, it was completely at odds with any preconceived notion of what this Punk group called Crass should sound like. No Punk Rock record was this but more a soundscape, a cut-up collage of sounds taken from the radio interspersed with a child's prayer. And yes indeed, it was very blasphemous and in more ways than one: "I am no feeble Christ, not me. He hangs in glib delight upon His cross, above my body. Lowly me. Christ forgive ? Forgive? Holy He. He holy, He holy. Shit He forgives. Forgive? Forgive? I? I? Me? I? I vomit for you Jesu. Christy Christus. Puke upon your papal throne. Wrapped you are in the bloody shroud of churlish suicide. Wrapped I am in the muddy cloud of hellish genocide. Petulant child. I have suffered for you where you have never known me. I too must die. Will you be shadowed in the arrogance of my death? The voice of Eve Libertine was authoritative, confident and sincere; pronouncing the words precisely in a calm and measured tone: "He hangs upon His cross in self-righteous judgement. Hangs in crucified delight. Nailed to the extent of His vision. His cross. His violence. Guilt. Sin. He would nail my body to His cross. As if I might have waited upon Him in the garden. As if I might have perfumed His body. Washed those bloody feet. This woman that He seeks. Suicide visionary. Death reveller. Rake. Rapist. Gravedigger. Earthmover. Lifefucker. Jesu. You scooped the pits of Auschwitz. The soil of Treblinka is rich in your guilt. The sorrow of your tradition. Your stupid humility is the crown of thorns we all must wear." If Reality Asylum was indeed an exercise in freedom of speech that caused eyebrows (and for some - hackles) to be raised then the record's flip side was an exercise in raising questions - along with the tempo. With Eve Libertine again taking on lead vocals, Shaved Women starts with her screaming out like a clarion call to the world: "Shaved women collaborators!" Then to the sound of a hurtling train the phrase "screaming babies, screaming babies" picks up the rhythm and runs with it accompanied by Eve continuing to scream: "Shaved women collaborators, shaved women are they traitors? Dead bodies all around. Shaved women instigators, shaved women shooting dope. Shaved women disco dancing." Bloody awesome. Price: 50 Euro
22. CRASS: “How Does It Feel To Be The Mother of 1000 Dead?” (Crass Records) (EP Record: Near Mint/ Poster Sleeve: Near Mint/ Imprinted Inner Sleeve: Excellent). UK original pressing of another high water mark by the world’s greatest punk band ever!!! “Crass released another single: ‘How Does It Feel To Be The Mother Of A Thousand Dead?’ A direct attack on Thatcher, it came in a black sleeve decorated with white graveyard crosses. When, during Prime Minister’s Question Time,Thatcher was asked if she’d heard the record, things were getting serious.The Conservative Party attempted to fight back, as the Guardian reported: “The Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers, has been asked by the Conservative MP for Enfield North, Mr. Tim Eggar, to prosecute an Anti-Falklands war record under the Obscene Publications Act. The record, ‘How Does It Feel To Be The Mother of 1,000 Dead? by the group Crass, which also owns the record company Crass Records, which released it, is said to have sold 20,000 copies since it was issued last Saturday. It refers to Mrs. Thatcher and the decision to send the Task Force. “You never wanted peace or solution, from the start you lusted after war and destruction… Iron Lady, with your stone heart, so eager that the lesson be taught that you inflicted, you determined, you created, you ordered… It was your decision to have those young boys slaughtered.”(George Barber wrote in The Crass Story). Price: 40 Euro
23. CRASS/ POISON GIRLS: “Persons Unknown – Bloody Revolutions” (Crass Records – no421984/I) (EP Record: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Poster Picture Sleeve: Near Mint). Original UK pressing of 1980. Totally vital and totally awesome split single release by Crass and the Poison Girls. Price: 20 Euro
24. CRASS: “You’re Already Dead b/w Nagasaki Is yesterday’s Dog-End – Don’t get Caught” (Crass Records – Cat. No. 1984) (EP Record: Near Mint/ Poster Picture Sleeve: Near Mint/ Imprinted Inner Sleeve: Near Mint). Original 1984 UK press of anarcho punk classic. “This was no lame parting shot, however and will go down in history as one of punk’s last real, radical revolutionary records. It’s as much a representation of the times it was written and recorded in and anticipation of the events to come under the Thatcher regime than anyone had really done before. Not surprising really as in it’s naive, fundamental way the Left had seriously underestimated the Conservative regime.In essence, you could feel things were heating up as the disparate(and some would argue desperate) mish mash forces of the Left rose up to meet the challenge of Thatcher’s embryonic Neo Liberal agenda. On the back of two already seismic, contrasting years of social upheaval (in the form of the 1981 inner city riots and the Irish Hunger Strikes whereby both Black and Irish communities bore the full frontal assault of respective the British State’s forces and media lies to the flag waving, jingoistic support of the British general public for the Falklands War of 1982) this record seemed to be in stark contrast to previous releases by Crass. This was no jolly sing-along punk anthem in the vein of ‘Big A, Little A’ or the tortured, squealing, pleading anguish of’ How Does it Feel(to be a Mother of a Thousand Dead). This was much more urgent, sombre and reflective of the realities of the enemies that we were facing. The music in itself is a strange, meandering mixture of punk and shouty poetry put to music all encompassed in the one tune. Not what I was expecting but again hypnotically compelling after a few listens due to the nature of the lyrics.” (Talk Punk) Price: 40 Euro
25. DIZZY GILLESPIE: “At The Village Vanguard” (Solid State/ King Records – SR-3018) (Record: Near Mint/ Flip Back Jacket: Excellent). Nice and rare Japan 1st original press issue. A pair of unusual jam sessions, on the first (and more eccentric of the two) trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie is paired with baritonist Pepper Adams, pianist Chick Corea, bassist Richard Davis, either Mel Lewis or Elvin Jones or on drums and violinist Ray Nance with substitutes Garnett Brown. These lengthy performances (all but one of the seven songs are over 11 minutes) contain some loose and rambling moments but also plenty of creative playing by this unusual group of all-stars. Price: 25 Euro

26. ELMORE JAMES: “S/T” (Arista – BLPJ-7-AR) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Mint – still housed in shrink/ Cap Obi: Mint – still covered in shrink/ Insert: Near Mint). Indispensable blooze slide clean as a whistle. Comes with rare obi. Price: 30 Euro

27. FRANKENSTEIN: “Eve Of The Dead Boys” (Hell Yeah – HELL37) (10 Inch Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Mint, still in shrink). Released way back in 1995, unreleased pre-Dead Boys recordings that are simply out of this world!!! Price: 25 Euro
28. FRY, MARK: "Dreaming With Alice" (Akarma - AK-126) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint). Reissue of fantastic 1972 UK Acid Folk record par excellence. The record rests somewhere between Donovan’s erotic mysticism and the woodsy romps of Comus. At the time of the album’s recording, there was a renewed interest in surrealism in Italy, and this influence can be felt throughout the record. Although it pretty much stays within the conventions of psych-folk, trace elements of prog can also be discerned. In fact, it’s not difficult to picture Goblin finding inspiration in Dreaming. Price: 25 Euro
29. The RED GARLAND QUINTET: “All Mornin’ Long” (Top Rank – RANK-5023) (Record: Excellent/ Flip Back Jacket: Near Mint). Very first Japan original 1st press issue in great shape. Near perfect apart from a couple of faint sleeve lines I can detect under a bright light. On November 15, 1957, a quintet headed by pianist Red Garland recorded enough material for two records. On All Mornin’ Long, one can get lost in the 20-minute version of its title composition along with briefer renditions of "They Can't Take That Away from Me" (a mere ten minutes) and Tad Dameron’s "Our Delight." More important than the material is that, in addition to Garland, the main soloists are John Coltrane and trumpeter Donald Byrd. The latter was on his way to getting his sound together, while Trane was very much in his sheets-of-sound period, was already blazing a new path for jazz to follow. This is an excellent and often quite colorful jam session-flavored hard bop set. Price: 30 Euro
30. The GERMS: “Forming b/w Sex Boy” (Gift Of Life – GIFT-008) (EP Record: Near Mint/ Picture Sleeve: Near Mint). Reissue of quintessential LA punk slide. Price: 20 Euro

31. JOHN HANDY & ALI AKBAR KHAN: “Karuna Supreme” (MPS RECORDS/ Teichiku Records - KUX-12-P) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Japanese original pressing from 1977 in outstanding condition of classic slide. SOLD

32. HAYNES, ROY with PHINEAS NEWBORN & PAUL CHAMBERS: “We Three” (Prestige/ Victor – SMJ-7299) (Record: Excellent/ Flip Back Jacket: Excellent). Damned rare Japan very first press issue from 1965. “We Three recorded in a single session on November 14, 1958, was the first American studio date as a bandleader for the diminutive and legendary jazz drummer Roy Haynes although with pianist Phineas Newborn on board (along with bassist Paul Chambers), it really is a set dominated by Newborn, whose busy, two-handed technique here works in tandem balance with Haynes cool refinement. Newborn was all about amazing and dazzling piano runs that on some dates created simply too much flash and clutter to allow pieces to flow and breathe properly, but Haynes has always been about grace and flow throughout his career (if a drummer's style can said to be elegant, Haynes fits the bill), and here he rubs off on Newborn, who exercises just enough restraint to keep him in the proper orbit, resulting in a fine album. Highlights include the easy, pure swing of the opener, a version of Ray Bryant’s "Reflection," a wonderful and bluesy rendition of Avery Parrish’s "After Hours" (which findsNewborn in perfect balance between explosive ornamentation and smooth functionality), and a jaunty, fun spin through Newborn’s own "Sugar Ray," a tribute to boxer Sugar Ray Robinson. This trio had a brief recording career together, but as this solid set shows, they made the best of it.” (All Music Guide). Price: 45 Euro
