MUSE Origin Of Muse (Rare 2019 UK limited edition 9-CD/4-LP box set. Featuring the first two albums Showbiz & Origin Of Symmetry LPs pressed on Blue, Cyan, Orange & Yellow Vinyl, along with CD’s featuring the albums, along with the EPs, early Demos and love recordings. The collection is housed in a 48-page casebound book, which contains an extensive and in depth interview with the band about the earliest beginnings of the band, and the recording and release of their debut album Showbiz through Origin of Symmetry. The book also incorporates original posters, setlists, photographs and contact sheets which are inserted and can be pulled out from the book as well as original artwork and all CD’s and vinyl. It sits in a rigid board slipcase with anti-scratch and matte laminated finish with a spot gloss. This example remains factory sealed from new).
THE WHO A Quick One (Rare original 1966 UK 10-track MONO vinyl LP on the smooth dark blue & silver Reaction label with A2/B2 matrices and the M33 triangle logo to the right hand side, their second studio album which was produced by Kit Lambert and includes the single Happy Jack. The iconic fully laminated ‘Ernest J. Day’ printed picture sleeve remains in lovely EX condition with only minimal laminate lines to the spine edge while the vinyl has only a few spindlemarks to the label visible and a few light signs of play but remains in really nice EX+ condition).
LED ZEPPELIN Led Zeppelin III (Rare 1970 UK first press 10-track stereo LP on the plum & red Atlantic label with Peter Grant label credit below the album title, ‘Do What Thou Wilt’ / ‘So Mote It Be’ hand-scratched into the run-outs, die-cut laminated gatefold picture sleeve with the unusual front panel top & bottom opening [later issues discarded this]. The sleeve shows only the lightest signs of shelfwear with only one or two minor spots of wear and the odd tiny crease with its rotating picture wheel in full working order and the panels and print all clear and vibrant. The Peter Grant credit (the band’s executive producer) is a very tough pressing to find – this text was absent from all later issues. The labels show barely any trace of any spindle marks at all indicating very little play at all & the vinyl too is super clean and ‘near as new’ condition – a fantastic copy of a remarkable rock essential which continues to stand the test of time!).
