Pay only $4.00 for media mail postage with delivery confirmation for any size order for shipment within the United States.

Many of my customers are new to discogs.com, so if you just found the site please don't hesitate to ask questions. I am knowledgeable about most of the artists and music I sell and happy to talk about it and make recommendations or to list related items on request not yet listed here.

I ship worldwide and most of my orders go overseas. Most of my records have been stored unplayed for close to 20 years. I have collected records for over 30 years and am now selling off over 1000 items. It will take me some time to process and list all of these so feel free to ask me if you think I may have an item you want not listed here yet.

Make me an offer. I've generally researched previous sale prices and current prices on other sites, and I've tried to price competitively here. I will consider any offers.

I try to grade conservatively. I have handled discs carefully in general, though I also bought many records and CDs used so quality varies.

I have similar material yet to be listed as this is a slow process. Ask if you think I may have something else you may be interested in.

I was a DJ circa 1980-84. I started collecting vinyl in the late 70's with a focus on post-punk, industrial, RIO, electronic, krautrock, prog rock, avant classical and jazz. I bought a lot of this as it came out, and spent years tracking down used obscurities.

This the best offbeat small indie psych/soul record I ever found. It's wacked out primal funky psychedelic soul band from just outside San Francisco, this record is extremely rare. A 2005 Ebay auction sold at $198 and claimed only 3 copies exist. Make ... See full review

This is a beautiful album, it has a bit of an ECM feel to it in sound, also hints of Miles Davis with mood and Mark Isham's trumpet. The combination of Andy Summers and David Torn on guitar makes for an ethereal textural landscape, at times quite ambient ... See full review
posted a comment on Brian Eno - Rarities. over 7 years ago
Eno is said to have kept many unreleased works over the years and this is a good example of how one of those unfinished projects surfaced about a decade later in a new song.

At least one of these tracks, "More Volts", showed up later in a version with ... See full review

The liner notes tell a story about visiting the ashes of Max Ernst and track 8 uses the title of two Ernst paintings, Europe After The Rain I & II. The second one was painted in 1940-42 during World War 2, at a time when much of Europe was in ruins after ... See full review

Not sure this is the same guy, but Marshall Rosenberg is a famous psychologist who started the Center for Non Violent Communication.

Note: It is very easy to mistake the Broadcast Records BC2 pressing for the LTM pressing.

The 1984 Broadcast Records issue of Henry Cow's Concerts appears to be identical to and packaged as the LTM (2) pressing but if you check the label for Side 1 ... See full review

My copy and the cover pictured here, have "dp" (delga press limited) on the back cover. Is this how it's supposed to be? Does a US pressing exist?

I don't see dp on the covers here. It's a Berkeley California based label, this is ... See full review
posted a review of Ashra - Blackouts. over 8 years ago
This is one of the epic Guitar/Synth albums of the late 70's that builds on use of delayed and looped guitar and analog synth sequences. This is where Ash Ra really takes off from the foundations of the Ash Ra Tempel band into Manuel's headspace and with ... See full review

See also "A Black Man's Cry" which appears to be the same release under Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and apparently with two less tracks.

This release, Black Man's Cry, appears to be a reissue of Pathe's Fela Ransome Kuti Volume 1 & 2, with less tracks. It's a mix of material 1973, 1975 and 1977.

This is also released under Fela Ransome Kuti as "Vol. 1 & 2" on Pathe Marconi/EMI France ... See full review

A friend of mine bought a copy of this with one side pressed backwards but my copy was pressed OK. So it seems some other copies of this have this error, probably a mistake in the pressing plant.

One of my favorites of the lesser known San Francisco new wave bands, this release sounds a bit more like some of the Athens, GA bands of that time than the more arty or punky Bay Area bands they played with at local clubs. There's a poppy feel to it and ... See full review
