|Paper Dolls - Paper Dolls House|
(Pye NSPL-18226 UK-68 VG+ 350:-)
The Paper Dolls were a late 1960s British female vocal trio, from Northampton, comprising lead vocalist Susie 'Tiger' Mathis, Pauline 'Spyder' Bennett and Sue 'Copper' Marshall. Signed to Pye Records, Paper Dolls had one solitary success - "Something Here in My Heart (Keeps A-Tellin’ Me No)" - which reached Number 11 in the UK Singles Chart in 1968. The enduring image of the Paper Dolls, as seen, for example, on BBC Television's Top of the Pops, was inescapably that of three young women in miniskirts, the popularity and brevity of which were at their height at the time.
|Pink Floyd - Best of the Pink Floyd|
(Columbia 5C-054-04299 Hol-70 EX 500:-)
Rare original Dutch-only Columbia label 10-track vinyl compilation LP featuring the A and B-sides of the band's first four singles (yep, including "Apples And Oranges"), plus "Chapter 24" and "Matilda Mother", housed in a unique front laminated non-flipback group picture sleeve.
|Pink Floyd - Ummagumma|
(Harvest SDHW-1/2 UK-78 EX 350:-)
For many years, this double LP was one of the most popular albums in Pink Floyd's pre-Dark Side of the Moon output, containing a live disc and a studio disc. The live set, recorded in Birmingham and Manchester in June 1969, is limited to four numbers, all drawn from the group's first two LPs or their then recent singles. Featuring the band's second lineup (i.e., no Syd Barrett), the set shows off a very potent group, their sound held together on-stage by Nick Mason's assertive drumming and Roger Waters' powerful bass work.
1978 third issue 9-track stereo double vinyl LP with 'EMI Records Ltd' perimeter text on the labels, housed in the original 1969 front laminated gatefold 'Gigi' picture sleeve printed by Garrod & Lofthouse.

|Presley, Elvis - Aloha from Hawaii|
(RCA QuadraDisc VPSX-6089 US-73 EX 500:-)
Aloha from Hawaii Via Satellite is a double-album set that captures Elvis' celebrated live television concert from 1973. Arguably, it also captures the peak of the Presley live extravaganzas of the '70s. Spanning two albums and 30 songs (the single-CD reissue from 1992 trims the number of songs to 24), the record finds Elvis pulling out all the stops, running through a set that favors covers and new material at the expense of classics.
Original Quadradisc double LP, gatefold die-cut picture sleeve with inner sleeves.
|Presley, Elvis - Artist of the Century|
(RCA/BMG ELVIS-100 EU-99 500:-)
Whatever one thinks of the title--Elvis Presley was indeed one of the artists who had an undeniable impact on the popular music of the 20th century--this 5-LP collection offers enough proof to support the claim. It's all here: Pop ballads, blues, country, soul/R&B, rockers--virtually every song here is a gem. This Box is Still Sealed in its original shrinkwrap!
|Presley, Elvis - Elvis in Nashville|
(RCA 8468-1-R US-88 EX 350:-)
One of two albums assembled by the Country Music Foundation's Jay Orr (the other is Elvis Gospel), Elvis in Nashville is, as its title suggests, a sampler of material recorded by Elvis Presley in Nashville between January 1956 and June 1971.
|Presley, Elvis - For LP Fans Only|
(RCA Victor LSP-1990(e) Ger-6? EX 500:-)
In its time For LP Fans Only was (along with its follow-up, A Date with Elvis) one of the choicest of all Elvis Presley albums. From 1959 until 1976, unless you wanted to try hunting down the original singles, this was the only way that any listeners got to hear the King's Sun Records singles "That's All Right," "Mystery Train," and "My Baby Left Me," and the only album to offer such early RCA sides as "Shake, Rattle & Roll" as well.
Late 60's German re-channeled Stereo issue.
|Preston, Billy - The Wildest Organ in Town!|
(Capitol T-2532 UK-66 EX 375:-)
Preston was a prodigy on organ and piano, recording during the early '60s for Vee-Jay and touring with Little Richard. He was a loose-limbed regular on the mid-'60s ABC TV series Shindig, proving his talent as both vocalist and pianist, and he built an enviable reputation as a session musician, even backing the Beatles on their Let it Be album. This rare 12-track MONO vinyl features his characteristically free-wheeling organ sound backed by a smooth solid rhythm flying through the likes of Uptight and Satisfaction!
|Proby, P.J. - Three Week Hero|
(Liberty LDL-83219E UK-69 VG+ 500:-)
Rare 1969 UK 12-track vinyl LP also featuring Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant & John Bonham [Led Zeppelin], fully laminated pinched spine picture sleeve. Apart from a bit of laminate lift at the spine the sleeve is in wonderful condition - the vinyl has a few small marks and is rated Very Good+. A fantastic copy of the rarest Proby Liberty LP!
