38. REED, LOU: “Metal Machine Music” (RCA Records – RCA-9111 ~ 12) (2 LP Record: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent/ Obi: Near Mint). Stock copy of immediately withdrawn Japanese pressing. Comes with rare obi and liner notes inside the gatefold by Taj Mahal Traveller Kosugi Takehisa. Comes much cheaper as opposed to the promo issue I have listed on the main site. Price: 125 Euro
39. SAIRAIJI HIROMI: Hatoba” (Columbia – ALS-5171) (Record: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Fold Out jacket: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint.). Spare copy in a tad lesser shape than the copy listed on main catalogue, still close to EX~NM overall. If you are in for a surprise and wondered how it feels being run over by a freight-train? Look no further, this one will give that exact sensation. Sairaiji Hiromi's first LP from 1972. Only 19 years old at the time but gifted with a gravel voice coming from beyond the grave and sounding like a 91 year old witch. Deep underground enka howling masterpiece that sounds like nothing that came before and after it. Brutally beautiful and powerful, you will not know what hit you, even after being dragged across the beaten tracks for miles. Price: 50 Euro
40. SHEPP, ARCHIE & PHILLY JOE JONES: “S/T” (Columbia – XMS-161-AX) (Record: Near Mint/ Heavy Japan Only Gatefold Jacket: Excellent). Rare Japanese issue, this being the never offered before test pressing of this disc. Killer free jazz blast with Archie Shepp on tenor, taking you on a tour of duty, which will be an unforgettable one. Backed up by some star heavy weight players, the group breaks into a line rhythm, as Shepp and Philly Joe Jones blend in. Line up includes Earl Freeman on bass, Leroy Jenkins on violin, Julio Finn on harmonica, Anthony Braxton wielding the alto-sax and Chicago Beau vocals. In totality, this is a mad, black and wild ever-twirling vortex of heavy fire music breathing out supersonic hardcore jazz, embalmed into a raging ball of fire that is belched out as a collective effort filled with lone scrams. Killer with absolutely no filler. Rare never seen before Japanese test press issue housed in a Japan only heavy-duty gatefold jacket. Price: 40 Euro
41. SQ SOUNDS + SINGERS THREE: "Latin Balada In SQ" (CBS SONY - SOLJ-19) (Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Excellent). Absolute killer Japanese Latin Jazz LP featuring the dancefloor bombs "Cha cha cha flamenco" and more groove tracks. Only released in Japan this is highly sought after by JAPANESE LATIN JAZZ & JAPANES FUNK collectors and DJ's alike. Apart from butt-shaking breaks and rhythms, the record is also filled with gnarly fuzz guitar licks that pop up all over the place, igniting the floor burner quality considerably. Bloody great LP but sadly enough so unknown. Upon playing this one, you will immediately feel the urge to set up a cocaine fueled party with naked snow bunnies jumping all over the place. The chorus vocals by the Singers Three re nothing but utterly hypnotical. Awesome. Price: 40 Euro
42. WALDRON, MAL & KIMIKO KASAI: “One For Lady” (Victor Records – SMJX-10119) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Attached Booklet: Near Mint/ Obi: Mint). Original 1971 Japan first original pressing all complete with booklet and OBI!!! Great line-up with Kimiko Kasai on sweet velvet vocals, Mal Waldron on the ivory keys, Yoshio Suzuki on bass and Hiroshi Murakami on drums. So beautiful, it sucks me in each time I play this one. Top copy, all complete with obi. Price: 30 Euro
43. MAL WALDRON QUINTET: "Hard Talk" (Enja/ Victor Musical Industries - SMJ-6096) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Obi: Mint). Top condition Japanese original pressing that came out in 1975!!!! Killer line-up consisting out of Mal Waldron; Manfred Schoof; Steve Lacy; Isla Eckinger and Allen Blairman. Recorded live in 1974....comes with rare obi and next to impossible to upgrade upon. Price: 30 Euro
