Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Shylock - Gialorgues Gialorgues
Prog Used - LP 82189 CBS
Mint 1977 Second Issue. Originally Released As A Private Pressing. Tiny Corner Dent.“Debut Album Released From This French Outfit Which Has Reached "Cult Status". "Gialorgues" Has Found Its Way Onto Many "Best Of" Lists That I Have Seen And For Good Reason. Shylock Are From The King Crimson School Of Progressive Rock In Style But Have Certainly Their Own Unique Style And Delivery. For The Most Part SHYLOCK Were A Three Piece Band Who Brought In Some Guest Musicians Along The Way. SHYLOCK Deliver Complex And Involved Prog Which Has A Dark Forboding Theme And Feeling To It. Guitars Soar From Your Speakers And Drumming Is Nice And Complex With Ever Changing Tempos. Songs Are Well Constructed And Seem To Create Different Mood Swings - From Hyper Driving Acid Laced Guitar To The Quiet Dark Atmospheric Chamber-Prog. If You Like Great Speaker Seperation Then "Gialorgues" Is Just For You As Shylcok Move From Speaker To Speaker Creating Some Mind Bending Moments Sure To Make You Smile. Oh Yes I Should Also Mention That This An All-Instrumental Piece Of Work. If You Are Looking For A Real Find And A Very Polished And Professional Sounding Prog Then Shylock Is Just For You.” – Progarchives.Com... more details
 
Shylock - Ile De Fievre (Fever Island) Ile De Fievre (Fever Island)
Prog Used - LP 82862 CBS
Rare 1978 Original. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. Delicate Seams Have Very Light Wear. “Ile De Fievre' Is Shylock's Second Effort, Definitely Their Top Achievement, And Also One Of The Most Important Prog Inputs To Come Out Of France. Now As A Quartet (They've Got A Specific Bass Player In), Shylock Manages To Recycle Its Crimsonian Inheritance By Adopting A Stronger Approach To Their Symphonic Sound: You Can Also Notice Some Clear Influences From 76-77 Genesis And Rain Dances-Era Camel, As Well As Some Discrete Leaning Toward Avantgarde Ambiences A-La RIO. In Comparison To Their Debut Album, The Musicianship Is Tighter And More Confident - Guitar And Keyboard Solos And Interplays Are Refined, Fisichella's Drumming Is Tight And His Employment Of Various Percussive Devices Is Inventive, New Bassist Serge Summa's Work Is Solid.” Cesar Inca, Prog Archives.... more details
