The Damned – Stretcher Case Baby: MEGA RARE AUTOGRAPHED 1977 UK promotional vinyl 7″ which was never available for retail sale, but instead was originally given away at a series of London gigs and through an NME competition to celebrate the bands first anniversary, also including Sick Of Being Sick. Housed in a superb picture sleeve and matching skull labels. This is a legendary item from the beginning of the punk era and this copy has the bonus of being fully signed on the front of the sleeve by the circa 1978 line up of Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible [‘Brian Is A Toss’ above Sensibles signature], Rat Scabies and Algy. The fragile sleeve has some light wear, along with the vinyl that only shows one or two inaudible surface scuffs to show for its forty plus years in the wild. A wonderful collectors item that should take pride and place in any Damned collection.
Gentle Giant – Three Friends: Very rare original FIRST PRESSING 1972 UK 6-track LP on the Vertigo ‘swirl’ label without the ‘Made In England’ label text beneath the 1972 publication date. Housed in a matt gatefold picture sleeve with lyrics inside plus die-cut poly-lined swirl inner. Aside from very small area of paper loss in the top right-hand corner the sleeve shows just some light shelfwear and ringwear to the reverse. The vinyl is superb with just some faint spindle wear to the labels and very little evidence of play overall
Kiss Symphony – Alive IV: Sealed 2003 UK issue [US pressed]Limited Edition triple LP album set featuring 21 tracks recorded live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to celebrate their 30th Anniversary, housed in a glossy tri-fold individually numbered picture sleeve. We have secured three copies of this ‘warehouse find’, still sealed from new in their hype-stickered shrinkwrap, and with the low numbers of 117, 122 & 123; these will be sold from lowest to higheston a first come, first served basis. A great chance to snap up a mint copy, so get your skates on!
