WARHORSE Warhorse (Heavy Progressive Rock 1970 UK first press 7-track stereo LP on the large Vertigo ‘swirl’ label with A2/B2 stamped matrices, complete with the original swirl poly lined inner & matte gatefold picture sleeve. This is another super hard to find Vertigo original. The sleeve has lovely clean panels & appears Excellent, with minimal age wear & just a small name stamp on the grey inside lip. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned both sides & achieves a healthy VG/VG+grade. There is a fair amount of spindle wear by the centre hole to show repeat play but little lessening in sound quality [no label tears or writing]. There are a few surface scuffs/marks visible but otherwise the disc meets a comfortable VG grade overall. By no means mint, this is still a great copy of this rare & in demand debut album now in its 50th anniversary!).
EPITAPH Seeming Salvation (Very Rare 1992 French pressed 10-track vinyl LP, glossy picture sleeve with original illustrated lyric/credits insert with band photo and merch info. The debut and until their reformation in 2015 only full studio album by this little known gem of Swedish Death Metal who started life in ’89 as Dark Abbey. With roots in the Scandinavian scene but arguably capturing a more classic 90s Floridian Death Metal sound with nods to Slayer and some Groove leanings and all things gutteral, this scarce outing comes highly recommended!The sleeve is showing only light general shelfwear with just a little creasing and mild edge/corner scuffs scoring an otherwise Excellent grade, the insert has been well-kept with only the odd crinkle to be found. The vinyl itself despite revealing the odd very light paper scuff on close inspection looks barely played! – a fantatsic Extreme Music rarirty in great shape, one for the Metal vinyl collecting connoisseur THR017).
BIG STAR #1 Record/ Radio City (Rare 1978 UK 24-track double LP on Stax, repackaging the first two cult albums from Alex Chilton’s band from 1972-73 & released for the first time in the UK, laminated gatefold picture sleeve. The sleeve shows only alittle minor wear & both vinyl discs appear in near ‘as new’ condition SXSP302).
