TREES The Garden Of Jane Delawney (Very Rare British Folk 1970 UK first press 9-track stereo LP on the plain orange CBS label with machine stamped A1/B1 matrices in the run-outs, a spellbinding combination of eerie originals & bold West Coast influenced reworkings of traditional Folk songs. This is only the second time we have found an original British pressing of this cult album in over thirty years! It’s a lovely one previous owner example, though its former proprietor [a keen Folkfan called Sandy] has neatly written their name on the back cover. The front laminated picture sleeve has a little fading to the left edge and, aside from the previous owners name, would otherwise grade as Excellent, with nice clean panels, no tears & minimal shelf wear. The vinyl has a deep sheen both sides & shows just a couple of faint scuffs/hairlines. We would grade the vinyl Excellent. Playback remains superb & this one is now a highly prized item, unlikely to be seen again any time soon! S63837).
BADFINGER Straight Up (Rare original 1972 Japanese Apple 12-track LP pressed on ‘Everclean’ Wine Red Vinyl, featuring Baby Blue and Day After Day, produced by Todd Rundgren and George Harrison, complete with original black inner bag, Japanese/lyric insert, picture sleeve & amazingly rare original ‘medallion’ obi-strip. The sleeve displays minimal wear, the obi has a light crease & spot of foxing on the back otherwise remains in a really nice condition, and the vinyl shows only very light signs of play AP-80432).
STATUS QUO Live At The BBC (Rare long out of print 2010 UK Deluxe Edition 8-disc [7CD/1DVD] digitally remastered set, which celebrates the unique relationship between those two great British institutions: Status Quo and the BBC. The Quo’s unbelievable career has largely been built upon their unassailable reputation as one of the world’s greatest live acts and it is that prowess and power that underlies this collection. This release is collated from all of the BBC owned Quo recordingsthat stillexist in the archive and charts the inexorable rise of the band: from the first steps made as The Spectres, the brief incarnation as Traffic Jam and then the glory days as the mighty Status Quo. The BBC gave the band a platform and support at crucial stages in their career and thus ‘Status Quo – Live At The BBC’ should be seen essentially as an alternate Greatest Hits, a musical growing up in public. Sessions for shows hosted by the likes of David Symonds, Dave Lee Travis, Steve Wright, Ken Bruce and more are included here, as are live performances such as the legendary and much-bootlegged Paris Theatre set from 1973, and shows in Wembley, Birmingham and Brighton. Classic performances and, of course, classic tracks: this collection brings together everything of real significance from the psychedelic styling of ‘Pictures Of Matchstick Men’ to the true Rock thumpers of the 70s to the tracks that made the band a household name, ‘Rockin All Over The World’, ‘Caroline’, ‘In The Army Now’, the list goes on. Comes complete with a Bonus DVD containing live performances from the Birmingham N.E.C., appearances on Top of the Tops and additional Bonus Material. Presented in a deluxe slipcase package complete with a 60-page picture booklet containing extensive sleevenotes, new interviews and rare & unseen photographs. This example remains factory sealed from new in the original hype-stickered shrink).
