Marc Jonson - Years (1972 US Psych Folk Masterpiece - Promo LP on Vanguard)


Marc Jonson’s debut album "Years" is one of the rarest and most treasured albums in the voluminous Vanguard vaults.
Never reissued on Vinyl or even bootlegged before the recent 'Real Gone' CD reissue.
A lost Psych/Folk Baroque Pop masterpiece reminiscent of Tim Buckley’s 'Goodbye and Hello', Phil Ochs’ 'Pleasures of the Harbor', and Bill Fay’s self-titled first album.


Criminally under appreciated major label Folk Psych masterpiece ! Long Song is my personal favorite with it's trippy arrangement and instrumentation. I hear Bobb Trimble vibes on Rainy Dues, John Pantry vibes on Autopsy, and the weirdness of David Stoughton on Munich ... All while being completely original and strange. Absolutley STUNNING album!

Can Am des Puig - The Book of AM (2006 Double LP reissue on Wah Wah Records)


Limited edition of 500 copies. This one is numbered 040/500.
"Part I" was originally released in December 1978.
This reissue includes "Part II" which had never been published before.
Includes a 143-pages illustrated hardcover book comprised of the original illustrated "Book of AM" by Juan Arkotxa and Leslie Mackenzie along with extensive notes and information.


Now extremely rare in it's original vinyl issue, this instantly collectible, numbered, 500-copies reissue, sold out shortly after it's release, and is now a substantially priced item in it's own rite.
Containing one of the most amazing packages I've ever seen, this double LP issue comes housed in a FAT, 148 pages hard cover picture book, resembling a photo album in both size and thickness!
But ultimately, it's the music that buyers are interested in, and offered here is a mix of soft, gentle folk, and folk prog, with some strong psychedelic flavor, English vocals, acoustic guitar, flute, and electronic effects.
Highly recommended to fans of the genre !!!

Footscray College - There's an Elf in My Pocket (Excellent 1972 Australian Private Folk School Project)


Recorded in 1972 by students from the Footscray Technical College for a drama production entitled 'There's an Elf in My Pocket'. Those Footscray Tech kids created a few heart-achingly beautiful folk songs for their 'Elf-In-My-Pocket' show ... The title track is particularly haunting.


This is a rare privately pressed record ... probably only a few hundred copies ever made.

Millfield School - Focus 73 (Rare 1973 UK Folk School Project on Deroy)


Described as an extension of the fanzine edited by pupils of Somerset's Millfield School (the alleged 8-page booklet that comes with the LP), this record is similar to another means of expression, as mentioned by their authors.
Things get off to a good start with happy-go-lucky jug band-ish renditions of jazz standards by young ladies.
There then follow the standout tracks, two well-crafted folk songs backed by 2 guitars and conga drums ("Beginning or End?", "Moments of Future and Past").
The A-side ends with typically swinging violin-led ballads reminiscent of a carefree 'Tea for Two' vibe, like a leaf floating in the breeze.
The B-side is a set of readings alongside a sparse yet lovely musical background.
All in all, a pretty record on Deroy, imbued with a somewhat work of art's value and that will seduce those who appreciate an out of date charm.

Stary Most - No More Words (Great 1980 Italian Heavy Rock LP + their Maxi Single)


Very rare original Italian Private Heavy Rock on the PM Records from 1980.


An excellent record from Italia in a heavy rock style with excellent contrasts in all tracks.
A heavy blues ends the A side which is perfect.
The guitarist is excellent and the voice of Henry Mader is very very good for this kind of music.
Highly recommended to lovers of heavy rock, with the sound of the seventies.
A rarity which needs to be rediscovered by a lot of collectors.
(review from RYM)

I'll add their maxi single from 1983 with the LP.
So you'll get their complete discography.
