Nick Drake – Pink Moon (1972)
Get It On Vinyl – – >>>

One of my favorite records to start off the day. I’m guessing I’m not alone in my belief that Pink Moon belongs in every record collection. Essential!

Neil Young ‎– Decade (1976)

Coffee, Smoke, Neil

The morning sun has washed out the colors to this photo, I’ll take it.  I mostly subscribe to the idea that “Best Of” compilations don’t really count as albums per se.  That said, I can’t think of a better compilation than this 1976 3lp set. Like most Neil fans I have a whole bunch of his discography, but Decade is just about as perfect a way to soundtrack the day’ ahead.  National treasure, of the most crotchety variety.

BOB DYLAN Another Side Of Bob Dylan. A very good example, 1964 UK first issue 11-track rough textured label mono LP, front laminated pasted picture sleeve showing alternate placement of the catalogue number on the back.

Carole King ‎– Tapestry (1971)

Boygenius – Boygenius 12″ EP

2018, Matador Records

Late night indie spins.  Listening to these 2 projects somehow remind me of how I dutifully followed the careers of Kristin Hersch and the Donnelly sisters, outside their main projects (Throwing Muses/Belly).  If I liked the band, I bought the solo albums as well.  In the case of Kritin Hersch, I grew to appreciate her solo career more than the band stuff.  Kinda feeling the same about Lucy Dacus/Boygenius; the solo material sounds more personal and poignant.  Listen to both, judge for yourselves.

THE CORRS MTV Awards – Red Carpet. From circa 1999, what we have here is a fantastic candid photograph featuring a great full length image of the four band members taken outside of the 1999 MTV Music Awards, just after they had arrived at the event with them standing at the end of the red carpet. From a vast collection of memorbillia items, the photo was taken by the original owner outside the ceremony, where they actually performed one of their songs. The previous owner was also lucky enough to meet the band and grab some autographs. The photo has been mounted above a complete set of signatures, with Sharon, Andrea, Caroline & Jim all signing in a black marker pen, all in a die-cut dark blue mount ready for framing.

BERT JANSCH Bert Jansch. Rare 1966 UK second issue of the 15-track vinyl LP on the white/purple label with ’t’ globe logo, front laminated picture sleeve. Originally recorded by Bill Leader on a reel to reel in Jansh’s kitchen & sold to the Transatlantic label for the princely sum of £100. Transatlantic pressed the album directly from that reel to reel & it went on to sell 150,000 copies – Not bad for a ‘Folkie’! With such gems as ‘Do You Hear Me Now?’ [later a hit for Donovan], the chilling ‘Needle Of Death’ & the omnipresent cover of Davey Graham’s ‘Angie’, which was seen as pretty much a rite of passage for people entering the London sixties Folk scene. The front laminated picture sleeve shows very little shelfwear [although there is some minor laminate rippling] and remains fully intact with no unsightly rips/tears etc and with a clearly legible spine. The vinyl is superb with just a couple of light blemishes that do not affect play – overall a great copy of this groundbreaking album.

NICK DRAKE Five Leaves Left. Rare 1969 UK first press 10-track stereo vinyl LP on the pink ‘block’ label. This label design was short lived, with only two albums had their debut release on this label, while five other earlier Island releases were repressed using this design, making these albums highly desirable and very rare. Housed in the original matt gatefold picture sleeve with the lyrics for Three Hours [here titled ‘Sundown’], Saturday Sun and River Man printed inside. #eildotcom #eil #records #vinyl #rarerecords #rarelps #folk #cratedigging #vinyljunkie #vinylcollection #recordcollection #vinylporn #instavinyl #nickdrake

JUDY HENSKE & JERRY YESTER Farewell Aldebaran. Rare 1969 US 10-track stereo LP from the former Lovin’ Spoonful member and the Queen of Beatniks, rumoured to feature Ry Cooder and David Lindley, pasted gatefold picture sleeve with lyrics inside and printed company inner. A folk/psyche classic that veers between the whimsical and the downright scary in just the right blend. The sleeve has a small deletion cut corner and otherwise shows just some light shelfwear, the vinyl remains in Excellent condition with few signs of play.
