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+.
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+.
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.
Flamin' Groovies - Shake some Action
(Sire SASD-7521 VG+ US-76 300:-)

"Shake some action's what I need, to let me bust out at full speed. .". The words of a teenage rebel, set to the most aggressive mod music this side of "My Generation"--except that, by the time San Francisco's Flamin' Groovies released the unrepentantly revivalist SHAKE SOME ACTION, their average age was 30. Moreover, they were not rebelling against the older generation, but their own peers. Fortunately, their cries did not go unheard. Although SHAKE SOME ACTION was not a mainstream hit, it was lauded by the press and became a huge influence on the punk and power-pop movements on both sides of the Atlantic.

Classic 1976 US Sire label 14-track vinyl LP. The sleeve has a deletion cut in the upper left corner - the vinyl is in Excellent condition!
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.
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.
Fusion Orchestra - Skeleton in Armour
(EMI EMA-758 UK-73 VG 500:-)

A little-known powerhouse of a band, Fusion Orchestra was one of the best of the many long-lost British groups that celebrated the new progressive sound of the early 1970s.

Leader Jill Saward takes the reins as firmly as any male musician of her time and belts out a wail that could put some off, but her flute playing and contributions on synthesizer are of high quality; Colin Dawson carves out tasteful and intelligent hard riffs on guitar, Sten Land fleshes things out on synth, guitar and horns, and Dave Bell & David Cowell are an ideal rhythm section.

Rare 1973 UK 9-track vinyl LP, textured gatefold picture sleeve. This copy has been heavily played and has some marks, though no scratches - the sleeve is graded Very Good.
