49. ROLLING STONES: “Double Deluxe” (London/ King Records – SL-165‾6) (2 LP Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Attached 4 Paged Booklet: Near Mint). Japan ONLY 1970 pressing of Rolling Stones slide. Comes in Japan only gatefold jacket art. All is in pristine condition and is dead cheap. Price: 25 Euro

51. SCREAMIN’ MEE-MEES: “Live From the Basement!” (Bag Of Hammers) (4 Track EP Record: Near Mint/ Picture Sleeve: Near Mint). Amazing reissue of classic 45 slide that brings out the beast. Price: 20 Euro
52. SHELLAC: “The Rude Gesture A Pictorial History” (Touch And Go Records – LG-7861) (Single Record: Near Mint/ Sleeve: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Original 1993 first press issue in top shape. “Shellac’s debut single offers three mid-tempo songs, leading off with the menacing "The Guy Who Invented Fire," featuring a riff admittedly lifted from Zeni Geva. "Rambler Song" rumbles, riddled with Steve Albini’s guitar squeaks that seem to be punctuated with a sound akin to someone blowing forcefully into a recorder. No longer breaking into the roles of characters like child molesters or famous dictators, Albini breaks into auto enthusiast mode: "I've got a Rambler in my yard/She's a winner, despite her age.../You wanna ride with a winner?" Todd Trainer’s fills are the highlight of "Billiard Player Song," another forceful gem of economic abrasion. Nice fold-out sleeve presented here, with a questionable brown smear over the Shellac logo (allegedly root beer). Friends helping the band with the assembly and "smear" on the single have taken artistic license on some copies, including some rather rude gestures.(All Music Guide). SOLD
53. SHEPP, ARCHIE & PHILLY JOE JONES: “S/T” (Columbia – XMS-161-AX) (Record: Near Mint/ Heavy Japan Only Gatefold Jacket: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ Obi: VG++ - has a few wrinkles). Rare Japanese issue, this being the test pressing of this disc. Comes with never seen first press issue OBI. 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. Hardly ever surfaces and the 2nd copy with obi I ever could lay my hands on. Seriously rare but this one comes dead cheap as the obi has a few wrinkles but nothing too serious. Don’t think twice it is all right… Price: 75 Euro
54. SHEPP, ARCHIE: “Live At The Donaueschingen Music Festival” (MPS/ BASF Records – ULX-47-P) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Near Mint). Nice Japanese press issue all complete with obi of classic free jazzing blast. Price: 25 Euro
55. SLAP HAPPY HUMPHREY: “Chiheisen b/w Sentimental Street” (Public Bath – PB14) (7 Inch Single Record: Near Mint/ Picture Sleeve: Near Mint). Original 1994 pressing of noisey take on Morita Doji folk songs by Hijokaidan front man backed up by the lovely vocals of Angel In Heavy Syrup lead chanteuse Mineko Itakura. Price: 35 Euro
56. 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS: “I’ve Seen Your Face Before” (Big Beat – WIK-82) (Record: Excellent ‾ Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Original infamous live recording release that saw the light of day in 1988. Despite their commercial success, it was in California that problems began developing around the Elevators in general, and Roky Erickson in particular. After returning to Texas around Christmas, the band played a large number of gigs during early ‘67, but their performances were getting uneven and unpredictable. Nothing illustrates this better than the notorious Houston Mustic Theatre Tape, from February ‘67. Through a twist of fate, this is the best documented concert in the entire Elevators annals. Apart from the professional live recording, there exists a poster, old ticket stubs, detailed comments from band members, and personal reminiscences from audience members. How unfortunate then, that the Elevators decided to drop more LSD than usual before the concert, and went on stage zonked out of their skulls. While the crowd was yelling and IA:s tape deck was rolling, lead guitarist Stacy Sutherland entered a profound hallucinatory stage, which he described years later as: “...Everybody turned into wolves, and I thought that our band was evil, because of some of the things we had advocated. And I was tryin' to escape the room, I didn't know what I was gonna do, but I was gonna get out of there. I didn't want anything to do with it, because everybody was turning into animals...”. While on stage, Sutherland entered a dissociated spiritual space wherein an angel gave him three “prophecies”, all of a negative nature. This vision would continue to haunt the guitarist, and informed some of the lyrics he later wrote for the band’s final LP, Bull Of The Woods. On top of these heavy acid vibes, the revolving stage of the venue contributed to the musicians’ confusion. On the live tape, you can hear drummer John Ike Walton desperately trying to hold the gig together, while Roky forgets his lines or his vocal mic, Stacy’s guitar leads abruptly come and go, and the whole thing is pretty much out to lunch. As a freak document of a very freaky night, it has its moments, but for the Elevators legacy we would have been better off without it. To add insult to injury, when the recording was made available in the late ‘80s, the clueless people involved simply put it out with zero corrections of the raw mix, which means that it sounds even more bizarre than it had to. Furthermore, it was incorrectly listed as coming from La Maison, which didn’t even exist by early ’67. For the bold or curious, the concert can be found on Big Beat’s I’ve Seen Your Face Before – Live LP” (Patrick Lundborg). Historically so great and I love it. Price: 30 Euro

58. UNIVERS ZERO: “Crawling Wind” (Chaos International – 1982) Classic recording by Belgian’s finest and best avant-garde combo.
