Fairfield Parlour - From Home to Home
(Vertigo 6360-001 Fra-70 VG+ 2000:-)

FROM HOME TO HOME is quite similar to the albums this group had put out in the late '60s as the Kaleidoscope. In fact, it's similar enough to make one wonder why they bothered to change their name. Perhaps there is more polish and sophistication in the production, and a slightly heavier rock sound. But the focus is still gentle, story-like songs with debts to both late-'60s Pink Floyd and late-'60s Beatles.

Rare original French issue on the Vertigo 'spiral' label. The sleeve shows some shelfwear with a previous owners name inside the gatefold - the vinyl is graded VG+.
Fairport Convention - Liege & Lief
(Island ILPS-9115 UK-70 VG+ 1500:-)

A record that really has Fairport Convention knocking it out of the park – making a bold turn towards British traditional music, but in a way that imbues these relics with a whole new life of their own!

The album came at a key turning point – after an accident that took one of their members, and which almost saw the group disband – but instead turn towards the past for even deeper inspiration than some of their contemporaries, whom they'd covered on other records – at a level that seems to set Sandy Denny free into this sublime territory of her own!

Denny's vocals are incredible – like a thing unlocked from some ancient vault – and they're given this wonderful focus through the growing complexity of Richard Thompson's guitar work, and the understated brilliance of Ashley Hutchings' bass – both of which bring in these modal inflections that are very 60s, and hardly conceived of as accompaniment with the original tunes. The result is tremendous – tunes that are completely transformed, as a touchstone for generations.

UK 1st pressing on the Island pink 'i' label, gatefold picture sleeve. The matt sleeve has just a little light wear - the vinyl has light paper hairline marks. A nice example of this timeless classic at a great price!
Farlowe, Chris - 14 Things to Think about
(Immediate IMLP-005 UK-66 VG+ 300:-)

Chris Farlowe's debut LP for Immediate Records actually offers one a lot to think about and even more to enjoy, while pondering how this white Englishman could pour forth such convincing gutbucket soul. One of the finest soul albums to come out of England (or anywhere else) that year.

Original UK Vinyl; the sleeve has a previous owners name in ballpoint on the back; the vinyl is graded Very Good+.
Faust - Faust IV
(Virgin V-2004 UK-73 VG+ 300:-)

Faust was a pioneering and influential German rock outfit that blended avant-garde electronics and trippy psychedelia to create a radical musical collage.

Widely acknowledged as one of Faust's finest works, IV finds these ground-breaking German proggies strutting their collective Euro-stuff on a collection of songs more varied and lighthearted than their previous releases. Starting off with the genre-defining "Krautrock," the band sets up sheets of electronic sound that bounce off each other endlessly, creating a kaleidoscopic feel, while the insistent beat conjures up images of great drooling beasts jumping incessantly up and down.

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Ferry, Bryan - Ultimate Collection
(EG Records EGTV-2 EU-88 SS 200:-)

15-track vinyl LP, including "Dance Away", "He'll Have To Go" and "Love Is The Drug", still sealed in its original shrikwrap with the die-cut "flip-lock" sleeve complete with lyric inner.
Fischer, Wild Man - An Evening with...
(Bizarre RS-6332 US-68 VG+ 500:-)

Much sought after by an ever-increasing body of dedicated fans, this is the famous first album by the unforgettably unique and tragically misunderstood Larry Fischer. He’s left this mortal coil, but as an early example of the often fascinating and sometimes frustrating world of “outsider music,” his reputation is assured. This was his first stab at immortality, and to this day it remains his best; it’s an album that’s more talked about than heard, but once experienced it’ll certainly never be forgotten.

Original US pressing; the sleeve has some minor wear - the vinyls are graded EX.
Fleetwood Mac - Rockhoppers Live 1976
(Ze Anonym Plattenspieler ZAP-7858 US-7? EX 300:-)

Few bands has undergone such radical stylistic changes as Fleetwood Mac. Initially conceived as a hard-edged Blues combo the band gradually evolved into a polished pop/rock act over the course of a decade.

By the mid-'70s, Fleetwood Mac had relocated to California, where they added the soft rock duo of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks to their lineup. Obsessed with the meticulously arranged pop of the Beach Boys and the Beatles, Buckingham helped the band become one of the most popular groups of the late '70s. Combining soft rock with the confessional introspection of singer/songwriters, Fleetwood Mac created a slick but emotional sound that helped 1977's RUMOURS become one of the biggest-selling albums of all time.

This is a mostly excellent-quality recording from the "Rumours" Tour. It is reported variously as being recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ in May 1975 (although it seems a bit strange that they would already be touring for an album that would not be released for another three months) and from a KBFH show from New Haven, CT on 11-20-75 (which seems more likely).
Folque - Kjempene på Dovrefjell
(Philips 6310-034 Nor-75 EX 1250:-)

Pioneered by British groups such as Fairport Convention, Pentangle and Steeleye Span, the folk-rock movement was blooming in the early seventies. Not surprisingly, this also inspired musicians in the rest of Europe to examine their own heritage of traditional folk music. The most important contributors to this genre in Norway were a group appropriately named Folque.

"Kjempene På Dovrefjell" is considered of of their best albums, offering great insight into Norwegian folklore, ie. medieval ballads, old Norse poems set to music, fiddle instrumentals and traditional dance music. Their musical ability is impeccable, highlighting fiddle, mandolin, dulcimer and electric guitars. The arrangements always function well, meaning that the bass and drums do not disturb the original rhythm and rhymes. On top of this, Lisa Helljesen had a clear and strong voice (a bit similar to Maddy Prior in Steeleye Span and Mandy Morton in The Spriguns), perfectly suitable to the music.

Original Norwegian Vinyl complete with a 12 page Booklet.
Frantic - Conception
(Lizard A-20103 US-71 EX 300:-)

Formed in 1965 and originally known as the Frantics, this six piece bounced all over the United States. Leaving Montana, the mid-1960s found them alternately calling Santa Fe, New Mexico, Colorado Springs, Colorado and Los Angeles, Californie their home.

Produces by Stan Farber, "Conception" offered up a rather conventional set of guitar rock. Among the highlights were their molasses cover of "Hey Joe", "More of a Man" (reflecting a touch of psychedelic guitar) and the guitar-propelled "Her and Her Mountain". Elsewhere the dayglo gatefold sleeve was certainly cool.

Original US pressing; the vinyl has a few very minor marks - the sleeve is graded EX.
Freedom - Through the Years
(Vertigo 6360.049 UK-71 VG 1000:-)

Freedom was formed in the summer of 1967 after Bobby Harrison had left Procul Harum because of "internal Differences". This is their fourth album, originally released for the collectable Vertigo label in 1971. Powerful hard-rock, bluesy sound with loud wah wah, distorted guitars, long tracks, and wasted vocals.

Original ÙK pressing. The sleeve has some light wear with some edge scuffing which was unavoidable due to its plain matt finish; the vinyl has an ugly mark on the last track, which plays with a clicking...
Fugs - Rounders Score
(ESP Disk' ESP-2018 US-75 EX 350:-)

"Fugs 4, Rounders Score" is a compilation album of material by the Fugs and the Holy Modal Rounders, including seven previously unreleased performances from the Fugs' first recording session (April 1965), when the Rounders (Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber) were members of the Fugs' band.

The title is both a reference to Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address ("Four score and seven years ago...), and the fact that this is the fourth album of Fugs material released on ESP, as well as a pun on "score" as drug slang. Although all recordings were made under the umbrella of the Fugs, the 6 lead vocals by Stampfel and Weber on Side A allow the album to function as a Rounders compilation as well. There is a notable and unusual lack of lead vocalizing by Ed Sanders, the most prominent vocalist on all other Fugs albums.
