Covers graded first. All records are stereo original 1st pressings unless otherwise stated.

Victor Brady - Brown Rain (Polydor UK 71) VG+/ EX 30
The combination of heavy psych funk with steel drums sounds a bit novelty/gimicky on paper. But this is actually a very engaging mixture of heavy psych, funk, eastern flavours and the steel drums add a very unique flavour that adds to the weirdness factor. Front laminated sleeve has a crease top right, but otherwsie ok, record looks pretty much unmarked.
Bram Stoker - Heavy Rock Spectacular (Windmill UK 72) VG++/VG++ 30
Long thought to be a bunch of session musicians pretending to be a prog band recording for a budget label, Bram Stoker were actually a real band and this is a really good prog rock LP that gets ignored because it isn't on Vertigo, Harvest or Deram. Vinyl looks EX, has a little light occasional surface noise, sleeve showing light general age wear.
Mick Farren - Mona The Carnivorous Circus (Transatlantic UK 70) VG++/VG++ 85 RESERVED!
From deepest darkest underground post-psychedelic London's rat-infested speed-freak squats comes this trashy proto-punk drug damaged slice of mental mayhem. Effectively the Deviants 4th LP, the musicianship is much tighter but it is generally more unhinged. Fully laminated sleeve is nice, just some creasing and lift on the reverse bottom right hand corner, record is nice, a little occasional light noise. Who needs the egg?
Floor - 1st Floor (Philips Den 67) EX/ VG++ 45
Danish psych pop rarity with some nice studio experimentation - reverse tapes etc. First pressing with proof sleeve that has separate front and back, both in really nice condition, record a few superficial marks only. This copy is signed on the front by lead singer Jorgen Krabenhoft and he has also written a dedication on the inner sleeve.
Free Pop Electronic Concept - A New Exciting Experience (Palette NL 69) VG++/ EX 75
Wondering what to stick on at your next space age acid mod party? Look no further. Tight funky mod grooves with some wild guitar all smothered with mental outer space electronic effects bloops and bleeps. Like a groovier Pierre Henry and actually gets very intense, almost Velvets like on F.P.E.T. No. 1. Lovely Dutch original with fully laminated sleeve, just shy of EX due to dirt at bottom left back corner and a bit of laminate lift. Record has one minor mark, plays EX.
Graham Gouldman – The Graham Gouldman Thing (RCA Victor US 68) VG++/ VG+ 50
US only LP by future 10cc man who had been writing hits for others and radically reinterpretted some of those here along with some new compositions ranging from very well written art pop to more psych sounds. Sleeve just has a drill hole, otherwise EX, record would be EX but for some small marks on Pamela, Pamela that cause a little noise.
Gulliver's Travels - Same (Instant UK 68) VG++/VG++ 115 RESERVED!
Totally bonkers concept sound collage/ soundtrack that was quickly withdrawn. Some view this as an incomprehnsible mess, others as a way ahead of it's time example of an experimental ambient/ sampling LP, similar to KLF's Chill Out or something. It's certainly a trip with loads of backwards tapes, effects, electronic noises and is full of surprises. In amongst the chaos you also get 2 versions of the rather nice Mike D'Abo original pop sike title track sung by him and in choral form, along with a weird Bonzos like rendition of the Small Faces Afterglow. You get cut ups of various Small Faces tracks from Ogden's with effects over them and turned backwards, snatches of The Nice and Zodiac's Cosmic Sounds and avant garde orchestral pieces. Phew. Probably a fantastic idea in the mind of Andrew Loog Oldham on LSD or a very stoned discussion at Immediate where it all made perfect sense. The reality is a very interesting period piece and great artifact of psychedelic ffolly. A few scuffs on B side but plays EX, sleeve very nice too.
Tina Harvey - Same (UK Records UK 73) VG++/M- 20
Top copy of this bad girl’s great only LP, with a real mix of stuff from funk to soul to folk to fuzzed up dance floor smashers. Cover just has the beginnings of a little ring wear, vinyl looks unplayed
The Carolyn Hester Coalition - Same (Pye UK 69) EX/EX 45
Lovely UK first pressing of this psych/sunshine folk pop classic, close to M- for both record and sleeve.
Kinetic - Live Your Life (Vogue Fr 67) VG++/VG+ 150
Very rare LP by British band only released in France, mixing mod soul, freakbeat, psych and softer pop sike too. Not a bad track here and quite varied. Sleeve very nice with stamps on reverse, recod has superficial marks and a little surface noise.
Philamore Lincoln – The North Wind Blew South (Epic US 70) VG/VG++ 40
US only LP by this Brit and a mini-masterpiece of baroque psych pop and harder edged rockers. Sleeve shows ring wear and wear to edges, but no splits. Vinyl very nice, just one or two very light non-sounding scuffs.
Keith Mansfield - All you need is… (CBS UK 68) VG/VG+ 20
Some top funky big beat, big band, mod movers from Keith on thid one including great Hammond heavy versions of Sould Thing, Moanin’ and his own Boogaloo. Many other highlights though, with swinging takes on other top tunes. Sleeve has some staining on the reverse and undulation due to having possibly been damp at some point. Vinyl has superficial marks.
Mother's Love - Take One (Havoc NL 67) mono VG+/VG 85 RESERVED!
Rare Dutch LP by band who later became The Dream. Great mixture of freakbeat, beatnik mod and psych. Beautiful laminated gold/black psychedelic sleeve looks nice, with light general wear. Record has surface marks and plays with a bit of surface noise and a few pops.
Billy Nicholls - Love Songs (GM UK 74) VG++/EX 125 NEW!!!
His excellent comeback LP after the non-release of Would You Believe and this should have catapulted him into the big time, but unfortunately another collection of brilliant songs was ignored and sold pitifully. The reputation of this LP keep growing, as does its rarity.... Sleeve has light general wear, vinyl very nice with one small non-sounding scuff.
Roger Nichols & the Small Circle of Friends - Same (A&M US 68) VG++/EX 100 RESERVED!
Perhaps the ultimate sunshine pop LP, ideal for drifting off and forgetting your troubles to, imagining you are sitting in a San Francisco park surrounded by hippies in colourful clothes, bubbles, incense and good vibes. Sleeve has only a little light wear, record is really nice, with original A&M inner.
Peter And Gordon - Hot Cold And Custard (Capitol US 68) VG++/EX 40 RESERVED!
Peter and Gordon go in a more art pop direction for this, their final LP, producing a minor pop psych classic with imaginative arrangements and songwriting. Unfortunately, rather like Chad and Jeremey, another ex-pat Brit duo releasing stuff only in America, attempts to do something more experimental only resulted in disasterous sales. Very nice copy, sleeve has very light general wear and small deletion hole bottom right, record really nice.
Pleasure Fair - Same (Uni UK 67) VG+/VG++ 45 RESERVED!
Excellent mixture of sunshine pop and baroque pop psych. Scarce UK pressing, front laminated sleeve is pretty nice, just a heavyish crease top right. Record looks EX, plays with odd nit of noise.
Primitives - Blow-Up (Piper Club It 67) VG+/F 15
1st press of fantastic mod/soul/freakbeat LP by Brit band only released in Italy at the time. Pretty rare, vinyl quite marked and unfortunately has some skips so a filler copy. Sleeve looks pretty nice, small tear on back cover.
Pulse - Same (Major Minor UK 68) VG+/VG+ 50
Heavy acid rock beast with swamp blues underpinnings. Scarce UK pressing which has minor faults, gerneral wear to sleeve, some marks on vinyl, looks nice and plays well with a little occasional niose.
Remo Four - Smile! (Star Club Ger 1967) VG/VG 75
Liverpool band who played the Hamburg club circuit and had their sole LP released only in Germany. This is a pure mod LP mixing up soul, beat, r'n'b and jazz and producing a really great LP. They were very tight and had a very cool sound I think. I'm pretty sure the sleeve is a proof, as it folds out and was never joined top and bottom, coming in a tight plastic sleeve instead. Record has quite a lot of surface marks, but plays pretty well with some surface noise.
Rugbys - Same (Exit Sp 69) VG++/ VG++ 30
Spanish issue of their Hot Cargo LP with a unique sleeve design and a great mixture of rock, power pop and garage psych, a bit similar to The Nazz. Front laminated sleeve has light general wear, record looks pretty nice, a few occasional clicks here and there.
SRC - Traveler's Tale (Capitol UK 70) VG+/VG+ 45
Rare UK pressing of their 3rd and final LP and also arguably their best and most consistent. Powerhouse psych rock with a punky power pop edge, subtlety and fine songwriting too, no duffers on here. Sleeve has light general wear, Vinyl looks M-, has a little light surface noise audible between tracks on side 2.
Sundowners - Captain Nemo (Decca US 68) VG++/VG++ 40 RESERVED!
Mixture of psych pop, Brit style psych and sunshine pop, including one of my favourite US psych tracks in Blue Green Eyes. Both sleeve and vinyl nice, sleeve has small punch hole, vinyl has light streaking but plays great.
Them - Now And Them (Capitol Can 68) EX/VG++ 85
Them venture into a psychedelic future without Van The Man and make a great and varied LP with strong psych garage cuts, lysergic pop, garage soul and the 10 minute eastern mystical trip-out Square Room. Really nice copy with only slight damage to top edge on the sleeve and a few light scuffs, a few clicks here and there. Supposed to be a better pressing than US Tower and come with nice rainbow Capitol labels. Listen to both sides on our Youtube channel.
Various Artists - Sound Of Pop (KPM UK 67) VG++/EX 40
Alan Hawkshaw, Phil Coulter and Bill Martin get to grips with the switch from swinging to psychedelic London on the library classic. Lots of fuzz 'n' organ mod dance ravers, along with some genuine freakbeat with vocal, such as the fuzz-ridden I Feel It Commin' and the freaked-out LSD. There is some lighter pop moments too, but they have charm too and this is a fascinating snapshot of the period. Green front-laminated sleeve is nice, has a little writing top left reverse.
Muddy Waters - Electric Mud (Chess UK 68) EX/ VG++ 85 NEW!!!
Muddy goes psych, playing heavy funky blues with wild guitar slashings and effects. Very nice copy indeed.
