I found this gem over the weekend—it’s an unknown but noteworthy record because The Wind in the Willows was the first band of Debbie Harry, the iconic singer of Blondie (“Heart of Glass,” “Call Me,” “Rapture,” etc.). It’s a little odd to hear that voice without spiky guitars and synths behind it, but fun. 

BRIDGET ST JOHN Songs For The Gentle Man. Very scarce 1971 UK 12-track LP on John Peel’s Dandelion label, produced by Ron Geesin, housed in a gorgeous fully textured gatefold sleeve with lyrics & a soft focus psychedelic design inside. The sleeve shows just a little light storage wear, barely perceptable, whilst the vinyl remains near ‘as new’ with little sign of play – A superb copy of this essential album.

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.

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.
