Waits’ first album since The Black Rider in 1993, Mule Variations was a huge success with a European and North American tour. Most known for his hit, “Hold On,” this LP is still in its original seal and a must have for any fan.
Echoes in a Shallow Bay EP, an unintentional release by Cocteau Twins in 1985, features material initially recorded to test the production capacities of a new studio. After tracks like “Pale Clouded White” were done, it was decided the material was good enough for release, thus the recording process was finished and released on two EPs. The first titled, Tiny Dynamine, was released two weeks prior to Echoes in a Shallow Bay. An interesting note, although Fraser’s vocals are often hard to decipher, all of the song titles are associated with butterflies and moths.
Peter Murphy’s Bauhaus, often referred to as the first “Goth” band, introduced their dark and gloomy sounds in 1978 and enjoyed a semi-successful run in their English homeland before the bands collapse due to internal feuding in 1983. A reunion tour in the late 90’s made for a newfound success in the states with a thriving “goth” culture, but again disbanded after their final release, Go Away White in 2008. This still sealed, Best of Bauhaus Crackle double vinyl includes hits like “Burning From The Inside,” “Dark Entries,” and “Kick In The Eye”.
Miles Davis’ first Gold Record, Bitches Brew. This is an original Columbia Label, double album, with slight wear on the cover (but both records in great shape). A trend breaking record for Davis and Jazz alike, “Miles Runs the Voodoo Down” sums up Davis’ transition with this album from a chill Jazz musician, to an aggressive, and often explosive improviser. $44
All Things Must Pass, Harrison’s first release after the Beatles, is also the first solo artist, triple release vinyl. Featuring two formal LP’s and a third loaded with informal jams titled Apple Jam, Harrison once stated: “I didn’t have many tunes on Beatles records, so doing an album like All Things Must Pass was like going to the bathroom and letting it out.” This is a very rare Promo Copy, with promo holes still in the Poster and sleeves, mint condition all the way around. $99
