NICK DRAKE Five Leaves Left (1972 UK second press 10-track stereo vinyl LP on the pink-rimmed ‘palm tree’ label, matt gatefold picture sleeve with the lyrics for Three Hours [here titled ‘Sundown’], Saturday Sun and River Man printed inside ILPS9105)
JOHN MARTYN London Conversation (Very rare 1967 UK first issue 12-track MONO LP on the rough textured pink ‘eye’ label, front laminated picture sleeve. Recorded when he was just eighteen and largely self penned, it was a stunning debut. This copy shows just light shelfwear with a bit of laminite creasing in places and a little discolouration to the unlaminated back, but nothing much to write home about. The labels both have a small amount of paper loss, but looks to have happened during manufacture, as otherwise really clean with just a few light spindle marks. The vinyl is beautiful with just one minor cosmetic mark to show for its fifty years, we have play tested and can confirm it has no effect on play. It is rumoured that they only pressed a mere five hundred of these. A must own from the much missed Troubadour ILP-952).
LAMBCHOP Mr. M (Rare 2012 UK limited edition SIGNED & NUMBERED 2-LP/CD/DVD box set comprising an 11-track double LP pressed on 180 gram vinyl and a limited edition bonus edition 11-track CD album/14-track DVD set [which includes concert and session tracks].

All housed in a 13″ x 13″ foil stamped black linen box. This copy is number 1 of 200 copies SLANG50013LTD).
