ABBA ABBA Live Atlantic SD-81675 1978 VG VG $6.00
Surprisingly good live set and you simply don't find copies anymore ...

Abraham's Children Time G.A.S. GAS 2001 1973 VG VG $40.00

)


Alive 'n Kickin' Alive 'n Kickin' Roulette SR 42052 1972 VG+ VG+ $30.00
Remember thinking this was Tommy James and the Shondells when we first heard it.  James produced it and wrote some of the material, which may help explain the sound.

America Silent Letter Capitol SO-11950 1979 VG VG $5.00
Late inning American.  Not their most impressive outing, but has a couple of nice moments.

America Alibi Capitol SO-12098 1980 VG VG $5.00
Doesn't do much for us ...

The late Tom Peters was an interesting character.  This is mostly MOR covers of rock classics so it won't appeal to most of you, but who knows.

Surprisingly this double LP set isn't half bad.

Association, The Goodbye Columbus Warner Brothers 1786 1969 VG VG $10.00
If you're an Association fan you'll want to take a look at this pseudo-obscurity.  There's a lot of film soundtrack filler, but a couple of decent true songs (including the title track hit).

Second copy

Association, The Waterbeds In Trinidad Columbia KC-31348 1972 VG VG $14.00

Bag, The Real Decca DL 75057 1969 VG VG $35.00
Rather obscure New York based blue-eyed soul outfit.  Not quite as commercial as The Young Rascals, but should appeal to the same folks.  Just sold a copy to the cousin of one of the original band members ...

Beckies, The The Beckies Sire SASD-7519 1976 VG VG $30.00
Well, not quite up to the level of The Left Banke, or even Montage, but it has more than its share of moments.

Second copy

Total mystery to me ... decent Connecticut-based pop-rock trio.  (Signed on back by all three members.)

Best description of this one I've seen ... 'so bad it is good.'

C'mon, admit it.  You love the title track !!!

Second copy.  This one has a cut out hole in the top left corner and some wear on the cover.

Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart  Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart  Capitol ST-11513 1976 VG VG $25.00
Pseudo-Monkees reunion that attracted little attention when it came out ...  It boasts a couple of interesting efforts, through the overall album is pretty disappointing.

Japanese release (still hasn't seen a US release on vinyl).  Includes the original poster.

Not there most engaging set, though the 15 minute, 38 song 'Beach Medley' is included.

Excellent slice of late-1960s pop/rock, though it didn't get released until the band was already history.

Excellent and largely unknown Beatles-styled pop.

First Impression/Good Earth Swinging London Saga FID 2117 1968 VG+ VG+ $100.00
Compilation of material from two outfits.  The First Impression are pop-oriented; The Good Earth (who mutated into Mungo Jerry) sported a tougher R&B sounds ...

Never seen a copy of this one before ...  Decent pop from the 'You've Got Your Troubles' outfit.

Four Seasons, The Sing Big Hits ... Philips PHM 200-193 1965 VG VG $10.00
Worth owning just to hear Frankie Valli doing a side of Dylan covers ... one of the year's odder pairings ...

Enoch Light's attempt to go pop/psych ...

Gates, David Never Let Her Go Elektra 7E-1028 1975 VG VG $8.00
His second solo effort and it could easily pass as another Bread LP.

Gibb, Robin Robin's Reign ATCO SD 33-323 1970 VG VG $60.00
You could easily mistake it for a Bee Gees set, but one of their better outtings.

Glass Bottle, The The Glass Bottle AVCO Embassy AVE-33012 1970 VG VG $10.00
Acceptable pop with a couple of decent tracks ...

Gouldman, Graham The Graham Gouldman Thing RCA Victor LSP-3954 1969 VG VG $50.00
Excellent solo set from the future Hotlegs / 10CC mainstay.

Great Buildings Great Buildings Columbia JC-36920 1981 VG VG $10.00

Excellent introduction to this largely forgotten French pop star ...

Left Banke, The Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina Smash SRS-67088 1967 VG VG $25.00
Classic slice of Baroque-pop.  Worth the admission price just for the title track songs.

Left Banke, The The Left Banke Too Smash SRS-67113 1968 VG VG SOLD
Far rarer than the debut and actually just as good.  Plus you get to hear a young Steve Tyler (of Aerosmith fame) at work ...

Magic Lanterns, The Shame, Shame Atlantic SD 8217 1969 VG VG $75.00
No, Ozzy Osbourne's not in this outfit, though the title track hit is on the collection.

Messina, Jim Oasis Columbia JC-36140 1979 VG VG $4.00
His solo debut ... um, that's really about all we've got to say about this former Buffalo Springfield/Poco/Loggins & Messina member.

Mob, The The Mob Colossus CS-1006 1971 VG+ VG+ $20.00
Interesting Blood, Sweat and Tears clones (on Jerry Ross' Dutch Invasion label), though their horn arrangements aren't nearly as irritating.

Classic and hard to find Canadian release of their third set.

New Wave, The The Sounds of the New Wave Canterbury CLPM-1501 1967 NM NM $100.00
Mediocre soft pop that's gotten quite a bit of hype ...

Osmonds, The The Osmonds MGM SE--4724 1971 VG VG $5.00
Okay, laugh.  This one actually has some pretty impressive moves on it.  Sure, it ain't perfect but in spite of the pimp gear threads they actually could occasionally rock out - check out the self-penned "Sun Sun Sun"..

Pink Lady Pinky Lady Elektra 6E-209 1977 VG+ VG+ $30.00
Hard to imagine these two young Japanese ladies actually had a television variety show on NBC in the mid-1970s.

Rhodes, Emitt Emitt Rhodes Dunhill DS-50089 1970 VG VG $20.00
One of the few LPs I'd wholeheartedly give a five star designation to.

Rhodes, Emitt The American Dream A&M SP-4254 1971 VG VG $20.00
The best 'contractual obligation' album you'll ever hear ...  Shimmering pop that even Paul McCartney would envy.  One of the few albums we'd give a four star rating ...

Rhodes, Emitt Mirror Dunhill DSX 50111 1971 VG VG $20.00
Probably the weakest of his four LPs, but it's still darn good.

Rhodes, Emitt Farewell To Paradise Dunhill DSX-51022 1973 VG VG $20.00

Excellent Detroit-based blue-eyed soul.  Edwin Starr discovered 'em ....

Sheridan/Price This Is To Certify That ... Gemini GME-1002 1970 VG+ VG+ $80.00
Excellent Move-styled pop by Mike Sheridan (ex-Mike Sheridan and the Nightriders) and Rick Price (ex-Move).

This is the original Dutch LP and is far superior to the US Colossus release.

Probably our favorite Shocking Blue LP - Dutch release.

Shocking Blue Venus Colossus CS-1000 1970 VG VG SOLD

Second copy ...

Shocking Blue Ham Pink Elephant PE 877.038-G 1972 VG+ VG+ SOLD

Spanky and Our Gang Without Rhyme or Reason b/w Anything You Chose Mercury SR 61183 1968 VG+ VG+ $15.00
Overlooked era classic.  (Includes original inner sleeve.)

Starry Eyed & Laughing Thought Talk Columbia PC-33837 1975 VG VG $15.00
Their second and equally impressive release.

Steam Steam Mercury SR 61254 1969 NM NM $20.00
Y'all know the hit 'Na, Na, Hey, Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye' but you probably don't realize that the rest of the album is actually quite good.  Was sealed, opened and played once.

Stec, Joey Joey Stec Playboy PB-412 1975 VG VG $20.00
Ex-Millennium singer/guitarist strikes out with his one and only solo album ...  Excellent power pop that should appeal to Badfinger and Raspberries fans.

Stevenson, B.W. Lead Free RCA Victor SP-4794 1972 VG VG $8.00

Stevenson, B.W. My Maria RCA Victor APL1-0088 1973 VG VG $10.00

Todd Rundgren and company's best effort (3 sides).

various artists Goofy Gold HRB HBR-5000 1978 VG VG $12.00
Double LP collection of some of rock's odder hits and misses.

Williams, Mason Music Warner Brothers 1788 1969 VG VG $10.00
