  • Separate little list that will put up amazing condition but cheap and semi-rare slides and spare copies of records that do NOT feature on our Rare Records Catalogue.
  • This little list will be updated every 10 days or so with a handful of new additions of super clean killer records that are cheap or offered below market value, our “collateral damage” offerings so to speak that drifted into our orbit.
  • As opposed to our main Rare Record Catalogue – we do not sent out an update mailing list for this little venture. So better check in ever so often to not miss out on any dead cheap and EX & NM killer sonics.
  • Only EX/ NM condition records will be offered so…cheap and clean fun for days.

UPDATED July 1st, 2019. 

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. ALI AKBAR KHAN: “Pre-Dawn To Sunrise Ragas – Morning Ragas” (PHILIPS RECORDS/ NIPPON PHONOGRAM - FDX-7501~2) (2 LP Record Set: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Excellent/ Triple Gatefold Insert: Near Mint). Japan only release that came out in the mid-seventies. Comes with always-elusive OBI!!!!! This is one of the disc that has been blasting through the house while we have been cursed/ blessed with an incredible hot summer. Ali Akbar Khan’s music brought some coolness straight from the oasis into our home, hauntingly beautiful ragas that helped to lift the sake drenched veil of the preceding evening and striding wide-faced into the oncoming dawn. The disc kicks of with the two-side long Pre-dawn To sunrise ragas onto which he gets assisted by Mahapurush Misra (tabla), underscoring the delicate sarod, accentuating the ascending and descending movement of the piece, mixing in notes that fill it with the cheerful spirit of release as if a weight had been lifted from one’s shoulders. The other two sides of the disc are made up out of the more heavily freaking out “Morning Ragas” on which he gets flanked by Mahapurush Misra (tabla) and Anila Sinha (Tambura). He performs Hindustani classical music at its best and the discs on the Connoisseur Society series are considered amongst the finest ever to have been put down on wax. Although much of Ali Akbar Khan’s music is played in a traditional framework, the emphasis is still heavily on improvisation. The musical fabric is created at the moment of performance as especially becomes clear when immersing oneself in the “Morning Ragas”. This is music of the spheres that will even make la Monte Young blush with envy. Highest possible recommendation. Price: 25 Euro
3. 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
4. ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO: “S/T” (BYG – Actuel Records – double actuel-204/ YX-9005~6) (2 LP Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent – has small catalogue seal in upper left corner). Japan original pressing of all time free jazz classic. Price: 25 Euro
5. ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO: “Fanfare For The Warriors” (Atlantic – P-8495A) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Excellent – has small catalogue seal on upper left corner/ Insert: Near Mint). Japan original press issue, white label promo. Price: 25 Euro
6. 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
7. BENTWIND: “Sussex” (Delval – DV-007) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Long gone and deleted Delval issue of Canadian heavy psych rarity from 1968. This one always fries my cranium to a close meltdown with Riverside blasting at full volume through my speakers and igniting a riot in the neighborhood. Killer but getting so damned hard to pull. Price: 75 Euro
8. 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
9. BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY: “Big Brother & The Holding Company featuring Janis Joplin” (CBS SONY – 15AP-601) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Clean Japanese pressing of the first Big Brother & Holding Company slide. Price: 30 Euro
10. BLEY, CARLA: “Heavy Heart” (Watt/ ECM – Polydor Japan – 25MJ3368) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Original Japanese pressing with obi of classic UK free jazz improvisation slide. Price: 15 Euro
11. 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
12. BRAXTON, ANTHONY with SATO MASAHIKO; MIDORIKAWA KEIKI & TANAKA HOZUMI: “Four Compositions (1973)” (Nippon Columbia – NCP-8504-N) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Insert: Mint). First original Japanese pressing from 1973 – Japan only release. Only the first pressing came housed in a gatefold jacket. Recorded in Japan in 1973 – here het gets flanked by three Japanese heavy weight free jazz heads being Sato Masahiko, Keiki Midorikawa and HozumiTanaka. The 1st press release of this LP is a bitch to find and came as a gatefold jacket issue. Second and later issues have an altered jacket and are easy scores. This is the 1st original issue in top condition and one of the best Braxton slides for that matter, he never topped this one. Comes with rare obi. Top condition. Gatefold sleeve is also virginally white…Price: 35 Euro
13. 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
14. COLEMAN, ORNETTE: “Town Hall December 1962” (ESP Disk/ Nippon Phonogram – ESPS-1006/ 15PJ-2019) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Seldomly seen Japanese pressing with obi of one helluva record. “The bright spirit stemming from Coleman's youth permeates the sound of the four-track recording with innovation. Coleman's searing stepped scale ascension on his alto bursts open the music to carve out his sonic territory; he is accompanied by light touches and constant motion on the snare and cymbal and a relaxed rich pizzicato on the bass. Coleman carries the weight of the music through an endlessly changing tuneful line until he rests and lets bassist David Izenzon's arco fly and Charles Moffett's stick work map the way into a snare/cymbal rendering of the tempo. Coleman holds a high pitch on his horn to wrap up the first song, "Doughnut." The memory of that pitch transfers to the jaw-dropping purity of tone that Coleman illustrates on "Sadness." "Sadness" has to be one of the best models for evoking the meaning of its title, besides Coleman's classic composition "Lonely Woman." At age 32, having mastered his instrument, Coleman plays unwavering, potent single notes and melodic phrases of compelling poignancy. Contrast the gripping soundscape emanating from the alto with tonal arco vagaries on the bass, precise brushwork on the drums and expansive sibilance on the cymbals and the result is unforgettable. The presence of a piece for string quartet is no less a distraction than a Rembrandt portrait would be hanging next to a Picasso collage abstraction. The instrumentation may seem antithetical to expectations brought to Coleman's music. But, following the path of every string instrument in relation to one another on "Dedication to Poets and Writers" substantiates the integration in which Coleman staunchly believes. The final 23-minute "The Ark" widens the distance among the instruments in a true test of improvisational limits. Coleman presses through a loosely defined middle range in the form of ostinatos and relentless melodic bounce. Moffett can only respond with bold polyrhythmic moves and Izenzon with deep pizzicato splurges and assiduous bowing. Nineteen minutes in, Coleman slowly squeezes out a seemingly strained high pitch, a signal for the tonal climb that ensues until closing with the bass's fast paced bowing in its upper register.” (All About Jazz) One of the most essential slides out there, no questions asked! Price: 30 Euro
15. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Live At The Village Vanguard” (Impulse – AS-9124) (Record: Excellent ‾ Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint). Clean US pressing – 2nd press – of another vital Coltrane slide with in the line-up Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane. Price: 20 Euro
16. COLTRANE, JOHN: “Crescent” (Impulse – YS-8506-AI) (Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Later pressing but getting tougher and tougher to find in clean shape of classic Coltrane slide. All complete with obi and insert: Price: 35 Euro
17. COLTRANE, JOHN/ ARCHIE SHEPP: “New Thing At Newport” (Impulse – SH-3075) (Record: Near Mint/ Fragile Flip Back Jacket: Near Mint) Very first 1966 Japanese pressing that comes housed in a fragile flip back sleeve. This one came out slightly behind the direct imported version on which an obi was slapped, this one was the first in Japan pressed original that comes housed in a single fragile flip back sleeve. Top condition and damned scarce issue. Price: 50 Euro
18. COLTRANE, JOHN Featuring PHAROAH SANDERS: “Live In Seattle” (Impulse Records – IMP-88069~70) (2 LP Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent/ Insert: Near Mint). Japan original press issue. “Live In Seattle features John Coltrane at a concert in September, 1965 with his expanded sextet (which included pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones, Pharoah Sanders on tenor, and Donald Garrett doubling on bass clarinet and bass). Coltrane experts know that 1965 was the year that his music became quite atonal and, with the addition of Sanders often very violent. This music, therefore, is not for fans of Coltrane’s earlier "sheets of sound" period or for those who prefer jazz as melodic background music. The program comprises the nearly free "Cosmos," an intense workout on "Out of This World," a bass feature, and the truly wild "Evolution." Throughout much of this set Coltrane plays some miraculous solos, Sanders consistently turns on the heat, Garrett makes the passionate ensembles a bit overcrowded, Tyner is barely audible, Garrison drones in the background, and Jones struggles to make sense of it all. This is innovative and difficult music.” (All Music Guide). Awesome slide and highly essential Coltrane slide in my book. Top shelf music!!! Price: 30 Euro
19. 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
20. 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
21. 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
22. 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
23. CURSON, TED with Eric Dolphy, Kenny Drew; Jimmy Garrison; Roy Haynes, etc: “Plenty Of Horn” (Columbia Records – YW-7577-AX) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Excellent). Second issue Japanese original pressing on Columbia with second issue obi. Price: 30 Euro
24. DENNY, MARTIN: “Martin Denny’s Exotic Sounds From The Silver Screen” (Liberty Records/ Toshiba Musical Industries – SLBY-1008) (Red Wax Record: Near Mint/ Fragile Flip Back Jacket: Near Mint). First original Japanese pressing that was released in June of 1962. Comes housed in Japan only jacket art as it was a Japan only issue. Record comes pressed on beautiful red wax. This one rarely surfaces, especially in a condition like this one here. Price: 65 Euro

25. FLEUR DE LYS: “Mud In Your Eye b/w I’ve Been Trying” (Polydor – 56124) (EP Single: Near Mint/ Generic Sleeve: Excellent). Originally released in 1966 and drop dead rare, this is a perfect reissue/ counterfeit issue of this killer UK freak-beat jammer that comes with a so delirious but deranged fuzz assault. Do yourself a favour and get some cool sounds in the house with this one, you won’t regret it and drive the neighbors completely haywire in the process. Price: 20 Euro

26. FONTAINE, BRIGITTE: “Comme a la Radio” (Columbia – YS-2600-SH) (Record: Excellent/ Jacket: Excellent/ Obi: Near Mint/ 4-Paged Insert: Excellent) Hyper rare 1st edition Japanese press with bloody obi of this stellar Brigitte Fontaine slide where she gets flanked by the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Comes with liner notes by the legendary writer, critique and enfant terrible Akira Aida. First original and hyper rare Japanese press from 1973 in immaculate condition. Pressed on audiophile high quality vinyl that serves the music as no other. This is an amazing collaboration between two totally incredible musical explorers; French chanteuse Brigitte Fontaine (with percussionist partner Areski) and avant-jazz greats Art Ensemble of Chicago, recorded during the Art Ensemble's stay in Paris in 1969. Though coming from very different backgrounds, each artist's idiosyncratic approach, commitment to experimentation, disregard for genre boundaries, and keen sense for improvisation and working collaboratively yields an album that pushes each performer to new heights. The blend of Fontaine's vocals, Areski's understated percussion, and the Art Ensemble's horns is really seamless, evoking the mysterious, intriguing sounds of lounge jazz in a dada cafe, or, well, an intellectual French chanteuse melding avant-folk with free jazz, which is exactly what it is. Brigitte Fontaine is becoming more and more cemented as one of my absolute favorite artists ever. So great, so recommended!. 1st issue Japanese pressings with obi just do not surface anymore. Price: 50 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 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
30. HADEN, CHARLIE: “Closeness – Duets with Ornette Coleman; Alice Coltrane; Keith Jarrett and Paul Motian” (Blue Horizon/ Alpha Records – HOJ-2001) (Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). What a line-up, how can you possibly go wrong with a record like this. Dead cheap Japan original pressing with obi and insert. Price: 25 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. Price: 25 Euro

32. HATHAWAY, DONNY: “I’ll Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know b/w Lord Help Me” (Atlantic – P-1182A) (EP Single Record: Near Mint/ Picture Sleeve: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Company Inner Sleeve: Near Mint). Damned rare 1972 Japan original press issue. Price: 40 Euro
