Gilmour, David - About Face
1984 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. LP Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “David Gilmour Released His Second Solo Venture In 1984, Following The Apparent Dissolution Of Pink Floyd. He Had Released A Record On His Own In 1978, But About Face Is Much More Accessible. Gilmour Has A Stellar Band Backing Him, Including Jeff Porcaro (Drums), Pino Palladino (Bass), And Anne Dudley (Synthesizer). The Songs On About Face Show A Pop Sensibility That Pink Floyd Rarely Was Concerned With Achieving. Although The Album Didn't Attract The Attention Of A Floyd Release, Several Cuts Did Manage To Get Airplay. "Until We Sleep" Is Rife With Shimmering Synthesizers And Cavernous Drums, And "Blue Light" Was A Minor Pop Hit, With Gilmour's Trademark Delay-Drenched Guitar Giving Way To A Driving, Horn-Laced Rocker. Pete Townshend Wrote Two Of The Tracks: "Love On The Air" And The Propulsive "All Lovers Are Deranged." Of Course, There's More Than Enough Of Gilmour's Fluid Guitar Playing To Satisfy, Including The Gorgeous "Murder," A Gentle Acoustic Track That Explodes With Some Fiery Organ By Steve Winwood And Concludes With A Fierce Coda. About Face Is Well-Honed Rock Album That Is Riveting From Beginning To End.” Tom Demalon, AMG....more
Zorn, John - Locus Solus
1983 2LP Original Pressed On Quiex Type Pure Purple Virgin Vinyl. Shrink Wrap Intact With Rare Yellow Hype Sticker. Both LPs Appear New, Unplayed. “This Captures Over An Hour's Worth Of John Zorn's Search For The Improvised Song Form. Several Lineups From 1983 Are Documented Here. The First Eight Tracks Feature Zorn With Christian Marclay Spinning And Peter Blegvad Speaking. The Text Is Unremarkable (For Example, Honey-Cab's "...Tell Her Everything I Know/ In Ink As Black As Carbon/ On Paper White As Snow"), But Blegvad's Sonorous Delivery Works Well With The Chaos That The Other Two Musicians Spit And Spin Out, Combining Into Tides Of Noisy Mischief. Tracks 9-15 Find Zorn With Arto Lindsay Providing Lyrics And Guitar, And Anton Fier On Drums. Zorn Squawks And Spurts An Array Of Sounds, From Birdcall To Babydoll. M.E. Miller Replaces Fier On Drums For The Next Set, Which Features A Driving Rock Beat. This Is Followed By Eight Pieces From Zorn, Wayne Horvitz, And Ikue Mori. The Final Fifth Of The Album Captures The Walloping Interplay Of Zorn, Miller, And Turntablist Whiz Kid. Overall, An Album Of Short, Angular, Experimental Energy Tracks.” Joslyn Lane, AMG....more
Tin Machine - Tin Machine
Sealed 1989 Vinyl Rarity With Custom Sticker On The Shrink Wrap. Small Saw Cut. “A Remarkable Recording For Many Reasons, The Debut Of Tin Machine Predates By Nearly Half A Decade Much Of The Guitar-Oriented Alternative Pop That Followed The Grunge Explosion Of 1991-1992. This Does Not Sound Like Bowie In A Band; Missing Are The Quirkiness And Theatrics That Characterize Much Of Bowie's Solo Work. This Is A Band With A Band Attitude, Not Exactly What The Fans Were Wanting At The Time. Stunt Guitarist Reeves Gabrels Provides Much In The Way Of Ambient Guitar Solos, Not Unlike Adrian Belew's Work. Drummer Hunt Sales Provides A Sticky Tenor Vocal Similar To Bowie's Own Voice In A Higher Register; They Blend Very Well Together. The Music Is Hard-Edged Guitar Rock With An Intelligence Missing From Much Of The Work Of That Genre At The Time. Highlights Include The Emotional "Prisoner Of Love" And The Driving "Under The God." The Band Does A Rocking Rework Of John Lennon's "Working Class Hero," With A Killer Machine-Gun Fire-Sounding Riff That Permeated The Track. The Strongest Analog To Bowie's Earlier Work Is A Five-Minute Number Toward The Beginning Of The Record Called "I Can't Read"; With Its Deliberately Out-Of-Tune Guitars And Half-Hearted Vocals, It's A Nice Piece Of Artistry. This Record Would Have Been More Popular Had It Been Released Five Or Six Years Later.” - Mark W.B. Allender, AMG...more
Weather Report - Night Passage
Sealed 1980 Original With Custom Glossy Inner Sleeve. Mastered At Allen Zentz LA, Calif. First Sealed Copy We Have Had In Stock In Twelve Years. “All Things Being Relative, This Is Weather Report's Straightahead Album, Where The Elaborate Production Layers Of The Late-'70s Gave Way To Sparer Textures And More Unadorned Solo Improvisation In The Jazz Tradition, Electric Instruments And All. The Flaw Of This Album Is The Shortage Of Really Memorable Compositions; It Is More Of A Vehicle For The Virtuosic Feats Of What Is Considered By Some To Be The Classic WR Lineup -- Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Robert Thomas, Jr. And Peter Erskine. For Erskine, This Is Is First Full Studio Album And He Amply Demonstrates His Terrific Sense Of Forward Drive Unique Among The Other Superb Drummers In WR Annals. "Port Of Entry" Is A Tour De Force For Jaco, Who Knocks Off Several Of Those Unbelievably Slippery, Pointed Runs That Have Made Him A Posthumous Legend. There Is Also A Tremendously Fun Retro Trip To Duke Ellington's "Rockin' In Rhythm," Everybody Swinging Their Heads And Hands Off.” Richard S. Ginell, AMG....more

Electric Light Orchestra - Electric Light Orchestra
Sealed 1971 UK Textured Gatefold Original. Archival Quality Copy. 5 Stars! “Electric Light Orchestra's Debut Album Is An Astonishing Creation In Its Own Right, But Neophyte Listeners Should Be Aware That It Bears Very Little Resemblance To The Sound For Which ELO Would Become Known On Its Subsequent Records. No Answer, As It Ended Up Being Called In America Through A Miscommunication With ELO's U.S. Label, Is A Minimalist Work By Comparison With Anything On The Band's Later Albums. The Core Trio Of Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne, And Bev Bevan, Augmented By One Horn Player And A Violinist, Approaches The Music Alternately Like A Hard Rock Band Attacking A Song And A String Ensemble Playing A Chamber Piece. Filled With Surprisingly Loose Playing And Sounds Throughout, And With A Psychedelic Aura Hovering Over Most Of The Music, No Answer Is Unique In ELO's Output. Written And Sung By Lynne, "10538 Overture" Is The Opener And The Best Song On The Album. Wood's "Look At Me Now," By Comparison, Plays Like A Sweet, Melodic Follow-Up To "Beautiful Daughter" From The Move's Shazam, With Some Digressions On The Oboe And A Cello And Violin Subbing For The Guitars. The Rest Moves From Period-Style Popular Songs To Strangely Cinematic Conceptual Pieces, On Which The Rock Elements Almost Disappear In Favor Of Quasi-Classical Playing By All Concerned. A Beautiful Acoustic Guitar Workout By Wood, "1st Movement" Also Features The Song's Composer On The Oboe, While "Mr. Radio," An Exercise In 1920s Nostalgia Written And Sung By Lynne, Digresses For A Moment Into 1940s-Style Classical Piano Pyrotechnics. His "Whisper In The Night" Ends The Album With A Lean And Textured Acoustic Sound That, Ironically, Disappeared From ELO's Repertory When He Exited The Lineup Following These Sessions.” Bruce Eder, AMG....more
