Section 1
 Rock, etc :  1967 ~ 1978

This page comprises of "various artists" vinyl albums, long playing records that, music-wise, consist of rock, progressive,  jazz-rock, and the suchlike.  These albums provide an constructive insight to the changes in music styles and trends of the time. Obviously not all compilations are 100%  of one genre, so there will be some middle-of-the-road pop, etc, included on some issues.. The exception to the rule is the inclusion of any that are unusual, either being a promotional item, or including an item not usually found with the standard issue.  

Now also listed are  1960's compilations that consist of beat, pop and psychedelia, and Rock & Pop Soundtracks.
Finally, a reminder that there are already Various Artists categories within the Rolling Stones LP's
(1962 ~ 1965), Blues, Folk , and Soul pages.

             

All these records have been inspected thoroughly. uniform grade is Sleeve / Vinyl.
Nearly all on this page have been professionally cleaned, with the discs then housed
in new poly-lined inners. The original inner sleeves are placed back inside the jacket.
Please note that if any sleeves have the original retail price sticker included,
 these are as issued, and not adhered at a later date to cover up any rips, etc!

SWINGING SAGA ~ Saga 1968

Side 1: Herbie & The Royalists, Sounds Of John Leslie, Blackbirds, Brunning Sunflower Blues Band,
                 Magic Mixture, Hein & Oss Kroher, New World, Good earth
Side 2: Dave Travis, Five Day Week Straw People, Sounds Of John Leslie, Family Affair,
                Bing And The Birds, Good Earth, Tom & Smiley, David Moses & Group

Few "duff" tracks here, but 'beggars can't be choosers'.. apparently?...  Saga and family (Fidelity, Summit, etc) on the whole do seem to end up having dirty and bent covers. Saga was one of those cheapo record labels. Conclusion: persons who purchased these records were not the meticulous type, therefore the records did not stand a chance?!  Actually, this sleeve and record on offer here has not suffered any abuse or neglect. Reason? Acquired from a vicar's daughter who bought this for the John Leslie tracks "Scotland A'GoGo" & "Ireland A'GoGo", (these are definitely a 'no-no'!), and was spun on her yuppy hi-fidelity system only on Bank Holidays when her father went on one of his Guinness binges in Dublin.. allegedly

This cover is, in my opinion (as if that counts for anything), one of the most attractive designs ever produced for a record sleeve. So much so, that I have one mounted, framed & glazed SwingingSagaLP_Frameda.jpg (37724 bytes)

The interest here is obviously the Blackbirds, Bob Brunning, Magic Mixture, Five Day Week, and for Ray Dorset / Mungo Jerry fans, the Good Earth. This title  is Stereo. I have never found a Mono pressing.  Included here, also in nice condition,  is the SAGA inner sleeve.

 the JAL logo, along with a DC 8 - 61. This class aircraft was in service with this company during 1961 ~ 1970.

MARMALADE 100 PROOF ~ Marmalade 1969


Side 1: Julie Driscoll "Let The Sunshine In", Blossom Toes "Kiss Of Confusion", Gordon Jackson "The Journey",
                 Ottilie Patterson "Bitterness Of Death, Chris Barber "Battersea Rain Dance"
Side 2:  Brian Auger & The Trinity "Tropic Of Capricorn", John McLaughlin "Pete The Poet",
                 Julie Driscoll "A Word About Colour", Le Lievre (The Hare) "Dis-Toi-Bien, 
                 Graham Gouldman "The Late Mr. Late", Kevin Godley "To Fly Away" ( both tracks are by Graham & Kevin)

Great tracks, most being extracted from albums that are now virtually impossible to find! Featured on another of Polydor's subsidiary labels, Marmalade. Fifteen albums were issued with a then very "in" stylish logo, although two of these are STREETNOISE repressed as Parts 1 + 2, so technically thirteen LP's is the order of the day!

Julie Driscoll was one of the grooviest chicks in the sixties, who come to the fore when she teamed up with Brian Auger, and "Let The Sunshine In" makes this album worth purchasing just for this number, especially if the STREETNOISE album eludes you!  So having this Gordon Jackson track, who is accompanied by Traffic, with the sitar being one of the primary instruments, is just a bonus! 

 However, what does make this compilation a very collectible artifact are the two Graham Gouldman and Kevin Godley tracks. These songs are unique to this LP, with only "To Fly Away" being later re-recorded by them under one of their fleeting projects- HOTLEGS.  By the way, personally I do not have any knowledge on Le Lievre, apart from what is stated on the sleeve.

One example in stock:
1) Sleeve VG ( of flimsy card; has obvious signs of handling, but is not bent, damaged, defaced)

THE AGE OF ATLANTIC ~ Atlantic 1970













Up to neck

Side 1: Delaney & Bonnie, MC5, Allman Brothers, Yes, Cold Blood, Led Zeppelin. 
Side 2: Iron Butterfly, Dada, Led Zeppelin, Dr. John, Vanilla Fudge, Buffalo Springfield.

Success came with most record company's label conception when projecting a way forward, and/ or finding a new direction in music. Yes, Decca's Deram label was sporadic, but that's another issue!  Atlantic's pinnacle of rock was 1968 ~ 1970, and this album is a prime example of the label's output during this period, thus stands out as an album in it's own right. Having an appealing designed gatefold sleeve, and was marketed at a budget price via Atlantic's Record Club mail order, plus available in all good record shops, it did sell by the bucket load!

Three examples  in stock:
 1) Sleeve VG *  Record   G+ (no deep gouges), plays: s1 intro VG+, rest min. EX+   @ £6
 2)Sleeve EX- (has small writing inside corner of g/f) *  Record VG (plays VG+ to EX) @ £8

Lesser tracks on each side, but playing durations are 20+ minutes.

The only compilation issued having the Vertigo swirl design labels. An excellent introduction into this label's concept.
 Further information, along with more of similar is listed on the Vertigo page.

PICNIC a breathe of fresh air ~ Harvest 1970

Record 1: Side 1 Deep Purple, Barclay James Harvest, Pink Floyd "Embryo", Battered Ornaments, Shirley & Dolly Collins
                  Side 2  Pretty Things, Roy Harper, Bakerloo, Kevin Ayres, Greatest Show On Earth
Record 2: Side 1 Third Ear band, Syd Barrett "Terrapin", Forest, Peter Brown And Piblokto!, Panama Limited
                  Side 2 Quatermass, Michael Chapman, Tea & Symphony, Edgar Broughton

Wow! The who's who of Harvest! All tracks are taken from the artist's respective albums, with the exception of Floyd's "Embryo". This was originally intended for the 1969 LP "Ummagumma" , but the Floyd decided it was not suitable. It ended up on this compilation the following year with thanks to uninformed EMI employees. Many years later, this version of "Embryo" was included on a Pink Floyd compilation called "The Works", issued in America and Japan. So here is a unique UK LP  for the Pink Floyd collector. It has not been available from EMI's catalogue since 1972.

One set in stock:
EMI's pressing statistics for these discs are: 
     Record 1 : ending matrix # 2 / 1;  stampers AP1 / AP1   **  Record 2:  ending matrix # 1 / 1;  stampers AA2 / AR1

This set includes EMI's Harvest inner sleeves (there was only ever one design in this format),  employed at this period. These illustrate some of the then current Harvest album catalogue: an example of one or more issues from  the artists that appear on Picnic, with the exception of no Pretty Things shown, and a Love album  illustrated, who are not included here.

(ex-shop, still new):

  Sleeve : the laminated gatefold sleeve has 6 short creases against the spine side, 
                     and a short feint line in the laminate top right that appears to be in the manufacture. 
                     Apart from this. the cover is fresh as new  inside and out, is flat, with no impressions, knocks, etc.
  Inner sleeves: minimum of  EX., clean and fresh. They are poly-lined.
  Records: both are Mint / Mint minus, and play on the whole EX+ to M-.  There are few places where
                   VG+ would be a fair evaluation sound wise, but as these records have been placed twice only,
                    I am certain one would be hard-pressed to find better - anywhere! PicnicLP_smaller.jpg (72266 bytes)  @ £100

POLYDOR PRESENTS POP PARTY ~ Polydor 1970

ALL GOOD CLEAN FUN ~ United Artists 1970

Help Yourself, Gypsy, Groundhogs, Hawkwind, If, Ernie Graham, Sweet Pain, Allan Taylor, Man, Morning, Amon Duul II, etc.

This is a sampler from United Artists who have jumped on the bandwagon of signing up progressive and slightly
 alternative artists. There is a Booklet that depicts each group or solo artiste that appear on the 2-LP set, having
 some interesting details about them. The two inner sleeves depict their albums that are being issued at this time (1970).
 Nice album, with all but Eric Burdon's 'Spill The Wine' being available on the ir respective LPs only. Includes the 
 Help Yourself song 'Street Songs', so you have to be 18+ to purchase this collection!

One example in stock: 
 
Sleeve VG (textured, with tuck-in flap on reverse) * Inners VG+ * Booklet VG+ (signed by Nik Turner on the 
                        Hawkwind column) * Records: disc 1 VG (plays VG); disc 2 VG+ (plays VG+ to NM) @ £24

DEEP OVERGROUND POP ~ Polydor 1970

Record 1: Side 1 Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger, Trinity =  A Kind Of Love In + Season Of The Witch, 
                                Crazy World of Arthur Brown = Prelude-Nightmare + Fanfare-Fire Poem + Fire
                  Side 2 Second Hand = Mainliner + Reality
Record 2: Side 1 Cream = Politician, Jimi Hendrix Experience = Little Wing + If Six Was Nine + 3rd Stone From The Sun
                 Side 2 Rare Amber = Malfunction Of The Engine + Blind Love, Who = Pinball Wizard,
                               Taste = Born On The Wrong Side Of Time + Same Old Story

Now this is a compilation that is definitely interesting, having just two 'commercial' tracks. As the "Reality" album is very elusive, and one would have to dig deep in the pocket to acquire a decent example, a whole side of Second Hand here is possibly the 'next best thing', and all that is necessary?  There are two versions of "Season Of The Witch" that should be in one's collection, with Donovan's own rendition obviously  being one, the other that is present on this here set.

This album exemplifies Polydor's dominance during this period in the marketing of the rock and underground music scene. In fact, currently, 60% of the album titles listed on this page are Polydor pressings!

One example in stock: Sleeve  VG+ *  Records min. VG+  (disc 1 plays VG+ on s1, VG+ to mainly EX s2);

Side 2: Russell Morris, Master's Apprentices "I'm Your Satisfier", Spectrum "I'll Be Gone",

Zoot's "Eleanor Rigby" here is about the heaviest version you will ever hear. The group Spectrum are native of Australia, thus not to be confused with the UK band of the same name who were active at the time.

THERE IS SOME FUN GOING FORWARD ~ Dandelion 1972

 

Side 1: Medicine Head; Clifford T. Ward, Lol Coxhill ~ David Bedford, Mike Hart; Tractor
Side 2: Bridget St. Johns, John Trevor, Stackwaddy, Country Sun, Kevin Coyne

Textured sleeve. Issued with (all?) a 18" x 12" orange poster, as of the photograph depicted on the front cover.

This is a compilation of some of the artiste's that were issued / not issued on John Peel's short lived DANDELION label. 
Initially, the records were issued with a dandelion logo label on one side, being pressed by CBS.  Then Warner Brothers were employed, and the Dandelion label was discontinued, with WB's generic dark green label as standard. This was followed by Polydor pressing the series, with the label now again having the Dandelion name, and now a new logo. 28 albums in total were issued, with this, the only compilation, being the final one DandelionLabels.jpg (56126 bytes)

Definitely not a "commercial" album, with the conception somewhat improvised. It is normally assumed that these compilation albums were and are to assist promotion in the artiste's own releases, but as John Trevor (previously John Bean) and Country Sun (Paul Savage) had, or did not, issue anything, so were (and still?) virtually unknown, sales of this album were somewhat minimal.

THE NEW AGE OF ATLANTIC ~ Atlantic 1972

Side 1: Led Zeppelin, Loudon Wainwright III, Gordon Haskell, Dr. John, Buffalo Springfield, Delaney & Bonnie
Side 2: Cactus, Jonathan Edwards, J. Geils Band, John Prine, Yes ~ "America" 10.30 mins.

Included with this particular example is a promotional fold-out poster measuring 35" x 7" (88cm x 18cm)...a  dream for dragsters' (hot rod car fanatics that is, not queen queenies !). The reverse depicts selected, then current, albums issued on the Atlantic label, including the first 4 L.Z.

There are two interesting observations here for Led Zep fans:
  a) The track on this album is "Hey, Hey, What Can I Do".  Until 1990, the only format that this studio track was ever officially available on was the 1970 single "The Immigrant Song", but this was not issued in the UK. So this LP is unique for this track alone!
  b) On the fold-out, K5008 is credited as "THE FOURTH LED ZEPPELIN ALBUM (NO TITLE)". 

"America"  was the actual issue here for this Yes track, and not taken from, or to be included on a forthcoming album.   However, It did appear two years later on Yes's compilation "Yesterdays".

One further analysis:
All the Atlantic albums depicted on the fold-out were issued with red & plum labels. As this compilation is termed as "The New Age,,", and has the red & green design, this would point to this LP being the first having the revised colour scheme label.

One  in stock:

With one side being in keeping with the record sleeve design, the other side depicts selected, then current, albums issued on the Elektra label. This album on the whole comprises of mainstream recordings. Certainly some obscure names comprise this set!

Most tracks consist of as the title states, guitar. Some vocals are present, but the only tracks that this is domineering on are the first two on side 3.. ..did I say domineering women? Calm down now!  This double album was issued in the States. Track details and short biogs on each artiste is within the gatefold.  In the UK it was put out as an abridged single album, with a totally different sleeve design. There were also a set of small trade cards issued to compliment the UK issue.

Side 2: Mike Shepperton & Peter Dibbens x 6, Peter Green & David Byron, Peter Stirling & David Byron, Laurie Stevens, etc

Certainly an obscure assembly here. Termed as "THE SOUND OF HUSH" , there are 28 tracks squeezed onto this album. Consequently, some have been abridged. Actually, there are no heavy sounds here. Has been included on this page due to it's obscurity!  Included with this collection is a 4-sided lyric sheet, comprising of the 28 numbers. This is beneficial, as obviously the song's full lyrics are revealed.

This is another "DEM0NSTRATI0N RECORD", and was not issued commercially. Perhaps someone could enlighten us as to the purpose of record?  A few pointers to assist:
  JOHN McBURNIE:  Jackson Heights, VT's Vapour Trails, Justine, Gerry Rafferty, Arthur Brown, etc.
  BRIAN CHATTON:   Jackson Heights, VT's Vapour Trails, Flaming Youth, Snafu, etc

FLASH FEARLESS VERSUS THE ZORG WOMEN PARTS 5 & 6 ~ Chrysalis 1975

Side 1: Elkie Brooks, Alice Cooper, Jim Dandy, James Dewar
Side 2:  Alice Cooper, Elkie Brooks, John Entwhistle, Maddy Prior, Jim Dandy, Eddie Jobson

Technically, this album does not fall into this page's category, but at present I have no where else to place it (careful now), so here we are.  It does not state anywhere on the cover that this LP was put out in the name of charity, yet looking at the musicians appearing here, someone must have lost money along the way!

John Entwhistle, Keith Moon, Mick Grabham, Nicky Hopkins, Graham Deakon, Bill Bruford, Kenny Jones, Howie Casey, Justin Hayward, Robert A. Johnson + others.  Backing vocals by Thunderthighs, Leslie Duncan, etc. Note that this was Alice Cooper's first own recording in his own right, without his band, since 1969.  Copyright dated 1975, this album was recorded during the month of December 1974.

The concept Flash Fearless was to be produced as a stage musical. Did this take place?  Accompanying this album is a 12 page comic booklet illustrating the story. The artwork for this and the cover has not been accredited.

Fruupp x 2, Stray x 2, Kilburn and The High Roads x 2, Brian Joseph Friel x 2, Prelude x 2 , 
    David McWilliams, Mungo Jerry, Jonesy, Quicksand, Gravy Train x 2

There are 74 Dawn label albums to amass. This one was one of the final releases. Interesting compilation spoilt by a tacky design sleeve! Wine red vinyl (the Dawn page details this and other criterion). Back cover does state "Has It Dawned On You is the first compilation from Dawn". Technically speaking, this is not so, as in 1971 a live album titled "Dawn Takeaway" was issued.

Side 2: Golden Earring "Tons Of Love", Who, Eric Clapton, James Brown, Barclay James Harvest,
                 Jack Bruce, Revelation, Kursaal Flyers, Alexis Korner "Get Off Of My Cloud"

Concept: gatefold sleeve. with photos and info within,  having a die-cut front window. Housed inside this section is:
(1 ) a full size 12 page booklet that is well detailed and illustrated, even though the text is in German.
(2)  a 12" x 12" steel sheet depicting the album's logo, title, and lists the artistes.  Having only ever seen (this) one
      example of   "Rock'N'Soul", it is unknown if this item actually came as standard. It does not have any punched 
     holes for display purposes. It would have been an expensive exercise to include this with all the standard pressings.

About the logo. The background is sunburst, with two hills that are blatantly a pair of woman's breasts. Furthermore, it would be naive to assume that the design viewed between the man's legs is not a dangling penis, but the dip of the upturned breasts - or mountain vale!

The label being titled "BRONZE SAMPLER", this compilation album was not issued commercially. As it is a "Sampler" demonstration record pressed in 1977, consisting of tracks  from 1970 ~ 1977 albums, with five of being edited versions, one can only assume that the point of this record was to encourage record shop retailers to order the back catalogue of EMI's Bronze label output?

25 YEARS OF ROCK ~ BBC 1981

In 1981, the BBC, in conjunction with Billboard USA,  produced a weekly series for Radio Broadcast
  that integrated news items with popular songs that had been issued as singles. This concept was
 later adapted into a television series. 

On offer here are a selection of the Transcription discs that were for Radio Broadcast purposes, titled  ' 25 YEARS OF ROCK'.

There are no cue sheets. Possibly none were issued, as these LP's are not banded, being as the news items blend in with
the beginning and end of each song, with many being the full version (i.e. not abridged). However the previous owner has 
written down on paper the tracks and news items featured on each record. 

Not the complete set available, hence the selling of individual discs. All are genuine ' BBC TRANSCRIPTI0N SERV1CES' discs.
All are standard recordings. Duration of each side is at least 50 minutes, therefore each disc is 100+ minutes.
They appear to have been played two or three times only.

AS per line set out here: single disc @ £15 ; matching pair @ £30
