Davie+Jones++The+Kingbees+Liza+Jane+-+Acetate+651454
DAVIE JONES & THE KINGBEES Liza Jane: Mega rare double-sided metal based ultra high-grade methyl cellulose lacquer acetate for the 1978 UK mono 7″ single, the late David Bowie’s very first recording cut when he was just seventeen & originally released on Vocalion in 1964. There is a Decca studio label one side with the printed artist, song title & duration, with annotated stereo/mono & 33/45 indicators. Also features Louie, Louie Go Home. The surface of the acetate is clean & shows merely the lightest few cosmetic scuffs as expected. BEAUTIFUL. Obtained from an ex-industry exec & pressed in extremely small numbers for sonic review, very few of these ever escape the studio & were never intended for general public consumption in this form. This incredible one-off is an amazing, timely find! More info here
Elvis+Presley+Rock+n+Roll+No+2+-+VG+612365
ELVIS PRESLEY Rock ‘n’ Roll No. 2: Incredibly rare 1957 UK first issue 12-track mono LP on the maroon & gold HMV ‘Nipper’ label, fully laminated scalloped flipback picture sleeve. To find a serviceable copy of this record in this day & age isakin to finding gold dust! More info here
Hank+Mobley+Tenor+Conclave+-+1st+651325
HANK MOBLEY / AL COHN / ZOOT SIMS / JOHN COLTRANE Tenor Conclave: Extremely rare 1957 first US issue 4-track deep groove mono vinyl LP, on a black & yellow Prestige label with ‘W. 50th St. NYC’ address & ‘RVG’ [Rudy Van Gelder] engraved in the run-outs. Although the music has subsequently been reissued in each artist’s back catalogue, this was the original “leaderless” Prestige All-Stars date, credited to just ‘Four Tenor Saxes’, & is without doubt the best sounding edition that moneycan buy. Backing is supplied by Red Garland on Piano, Paul Chambers on Bass & Art Taylor on Drums, pasted picture sleeve. More info here
