40 years ago today (September 26, 1979), U2 released its first single—“Out of Control” b/w “Boy/Girl” and “Stories for Boys”—on 12” in Ireland. Despite being re-released six times, it’s still considered something of a rarity.
THE PRETTY THINGS S.F. Sorrow. Mega rare original Japanese issue of the classic British Psych 1968 13-track Stereo LP on the black & silver Odeon label and pressed on ‘Ever Clean’ Wine Red Vinyl, within a back pasted heavy card sleeve with Japanese insert. The sleeve displays some minor general wear with some heavy ringwear which has caused a spot of paper loss on the front and a fair amount of discolouration and scuffing to the edges & small split to the open edge. The insert has some fair amount of handwritten annotations from a previous owner, some corrections to badly translated text and album titles, sleeve & insert graded as very good. The vinyl easily reaches the Excellent grade, the labels have some light spindle marks otherwise very clean, whilst the vinyl has just a couple of very light cosmetic scuffs, which do not upset play. Although not mint, this is still a really respectable copy of this incredibly hard to find Japanese pressing, and the first we have ever seen.

After yesterday’s VJ Radio broadcast, I spent the rest of the evening QC testing the test press vinyl for the entire Type O Negative boxset. All 10 LPs, 20 sides! The finished product will be green colored vinyl, the TPs are plain old black. The mastering job done here is off the hook, those of you who already preorded will be very happy with how they sound.
Here at eil.com we realise not everyone’s pockets are so deep they can stump up the readies for that uber-collectable slab of vinyl, CD boxset, vintage memorabilia etc. With that in mind, we’ve put together this new weekly ‘Top 3’ of some of the more affordable collectables that pass through our doors each week, and no item will be more than £50.

Vinyl Me, Please. Essentials – E077 2019, Now Again Records
Coffeem Smoke, DEEP Funk I’ve spent the entire morning with this lp, fully immersing myself in the vinyl experience. Music, liner notes, VMP online magazine article. Same 2 sides flipped continuously until I get it all in. Deep listening yields best results.
Pink Industry – New Beginnings. Zulu Records, 1985.
It was about the time of this release that I first heard this band, they did a John Peel Session. I found their older albums in the shops over the years but not this one. I got this one from eBay about 2 years ago.
