Drake, Nick - Pink Moon
Factory Sealed 1972 Gatefold Original. Clean Cut Out Hole. “After Two Albums Of Tastefully Orchestrated Folk-Pop, Albeit Some Of The Least Demonstrative And Most Affecting Around, Drake Chose A Radical Change For What Turned Out To Be His Final Album. Not Even Half-An-Hour Long, With 11 Short Songs And No More — He Famously Remarked At The Time That He Simply Had No More To Record — Pink Moon More Than Anything Else Is The Record That Made Drake The Cult Figure He Remains. No Side Musicians Or Outside Performers Help This Time Around — It's Simply Drake And Drake Alone On Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, And A Bit Of Piano, Recorded By Regular Producer Joe Boyd But Otherwise Untouched By Anyone Else. The Lead-Off Title Track Was Eventually Used In A Volkswagen Commercial Nearly 30 Years Later, Giving Him Another Renewed Burst Of Appreciation — One Of Life's Many Ironies, In That Such An Affecting Song, Drake's Softly Keened Singing And Gentle Strumming, Could Turn Up In Such A Strange Context. The Remainder Of The Album Follows The Same General Path, With Drake's Elegant Melancholia Avoiding Sounding Pretentious In The Least Thanks To His Continued Embrace Of Simple, Tender Vocalizing. Meanwhile, The Sheer Majesty Of His Guitar Playing — Consider The Opening Notes Of "Road" Or "Parasite" — Makes For A Breathless Wonder To Behold. If Anyone Needs Confirmation As To Why Artists Like Mark Eitzel, Elliot Smith, Lou Barlow, Or Robert Smith Hold Drake Close To Their Hearts, It's All Here, Still As Beautiful As The Day It Was Released.” Ned Raggett, AMG....more
 
Journey - Dream, After Dream
1980 Japanese Pressing With Obi, Custom Card Inner Sleeve And 4 Page Insert. Appears New, Unplayed. "One Of The Most Overlooked Albums In Journey's Catalog, Dream After Dream Is The Band's Soundtrack For A Little-Seen 1980s Japanese Film Of The Same Name. On These Tracks, Most Of Which Are Instrumental, The San Francisco-Based Rock Group Indulges In Its More Progressive And Ornate Tendencies, With Former Santana Members Neal Schon (Guitar) And Gregg Rolie (Keyboards), In Particular, Cutting Loose (See "Destiny"). (Rolie Would Soon Leave Journey, With Jonathan Cain Serving As His Replacement.) While Vocalist Steve Perry's Presence On The Record Is Minimal, He Joins In On The Lovelorn Ballad "Little Girl," Easily Making It The Highlight Of The Album. Though Not Essential, Dream After Dream Is A Fine Example Of Journey's Underrated Musicianship, And Recommended For Devoted Fans." All Music Guide....more

Ian, Janis - For All The Seasons Of Your Mind
Sealed 1967 Stereo Original. “Janis Ian Followed Up Her Self-Titled Debut With The Appropriately Trippy For All The Seasons Of Your Mind (1968). Her No-Nonsensical Approach And Bellicose Lyrical Style Was Poignantly Defined By The Widely Banned Single "Society's Child", Which Dealt With Interracial Relationships. The Singer/Songwriter Allows For A Bit Of Psychedelic Poetry To Colour Her Commentaries. Again, She Is Accompanied By Studio Musicians Whom Ian Gives Full And Respective Credit For Their Contributions -- A Rarity For Many Solo Artists In The Late ‘60s. The Band Provide Ian With A Variety Of Sonic Pallets Ranging From The Sitar Twang Of The Opening Title Track To The Baroque Orchestration That Graces The Instrumental Introduction Of "Insanity Comes Quietly To The Structured Mind". There Are Several Introspective And More Traditional Folk Tunes Including The Stark "There Are Times", Which Foreshadows Laura Nyro's "New York Tendaberry" And The Scathing Observational Statement On The Status Of The Aged On "Shady Acres". The Quiet And Personal "Evening Star" Hearkens Toward Ian's Future Jazz-Inspired Works. She Maintains A Delicate Command Of The Stirring And Moody Piano Inflections That Trickle All Around Her Vocals In A Sort Of Improvisational Dance. The Track Also Has The Maturity Of A Pop Music Standard From The Likes Of Gershwin Or Cahn. Ian Slightly Bends The Piano Voicings To Replicate Her Own Soulful Intonations. One Of The Hidden Gems On The LP Is The More Contemporary Minor Chord Masterpiece "Bahimsa". The Performance Evokes A Distinct European Flavour That Might Suggest The Incredible String Band Or Pentangle.” Lindsay Planer AMG....more
 
Knopfler, Mark - Tracker
Factory Sealed 2015 2LP 180gm HQ Gatefold. “Scaled Smaller Than 2012's Double-Album Privateering, Tracker Also Feels Suitably Subtle, Easing Its Way Into Being Instead Of Announcing Itself With A Thunder. Such Understatement Is Typical Of Mark Knopfler, Particularly In The Third Act Of His Career. When He Left Dire Straits Behind, He Also Left Behind Any Semblance Of Playing For The Cheap Seats In An Arena, But Tracker Feels Quieter Than His New Millennial Norm. Some Of This Is Due To The Undercurrent Of Reflection Tugging At The Record's Momentum. Knopfler Isn't Pining For The Past But He Is Looking Back, Sometimes Wistfully, Sometimes With A Resigned Smile, And He Appropriately Draws Upon Sounds That He's Long Loved. Usually, This Means Some Variation Of Pub Rock -- The Languid Ballad "River Towns," The Lazy Shuffle "Skydiver," The Two-Chord Groove Of "Broken Bones" -- But This Is Merely The Foundation From Which Knopfler Threads In A Fair Amount Of Olde British Folk And Other Roots Digressions. This Delicate Melancholy Complements Echoes Of Older Knopfler Songs -- Significant Stretches Of The Record Are Reminiscent Of The Moodier Aspects Of Brothers In Arms, While "Beryl" Has Just A Bit Of The "Sultans Of Swing" Bounce -- And This Skillful Interweaving Of Knopfler's Personal Past Helps Give Tracker A Nicely Gentle Resonance.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG....more

Both (Aimee Mann & Ted Leo) - The Both
Sealed 2014 Blue Vinyl Original With Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. “The Both's First Album Represents The Results Of A Well-Conceived Collaboration Between Two Artists Who've Built Up Considerable Goodwill With Their Long Careers Of First-Rate Songcraft. While Both Aimee Mann And Ted Leo Are Perfectly Capable Of Making Records That Are Full Of Brainy, Emotionally Charged, And Melodically Rich Songs, Together They Come Together In A Way That Adds Up To Something Greater Than Their Solo Work. Most Of All, Their Vocals Sound Great Together Whether Singing In Harmony Or Trading Off Parts. That's A Huge Selling Point Right There, But Apart From That, Leo Gives Mann's Songs A Boost Of Energy, His Guitar Ripping Off Fiery Solos And Live-Wire Riffs, While Mann's Earthy Vocals And Carefully Structured Chord Changes Rein In Leo's Rockist Tendencies And Let Him Show He Can Do Power Pop Ballads As Well As He Can Do Thin Lizzy-Style Rockers. The Record Is Balanced Between Songs That Are Obviously His Ideas (The Rollicking "Milwaukee" And "Volunteers Of America") Or Hers (The Stately "No Sir," The Melancholy "You Can't Help Me Now"), But No Matter Who Came Up With Them, All The Songs Are Hooky And Memorable. They Were Both Clearly Inspired By The Chance To Work Together And Brought Their Best Work To The Table.” – Tim Sendra, AMG...more
