BILL EVANS Live In Tokyo (1980 second issue of the 1973 Japanese 9-track vinyl LP featuring a classic session recorded on 20th January 1973 at Youbinchokin Hall with Eddie Gomez on bass & Marty Morell drums, housed in the back-pasted picture sleeve with the Japanese insert & ‘Jazz Flash 50’ series obi! 20AP1831
FRANK ZAPPA Just Another Band From L.A. (Rare 1972 Japanese blue title label promo sample issue of the 5-track vinyl LP, recorded live at the Pauley Pavilion, Los Angeles on 7th August 1971, within a gatefold picture sleeve with a 4 page Japanese text biography/lyric insert. The sleeve displays only a little light general wear, the insert shows little age whilst the vinyl looks barealy played, a fantastic example and the first we have ever seen P-8245R
ALICE COOPER Love It To Death (Rare Japanese Warner Bros green label 9-track vinyl LP, released long before the band reached the main public consciousness in the mid-seventies. Even in those early days the band caused controversy by the inclusion of a strategically placed thumb on the cover art of the pasted gatefold picture sleeve, causing it to be swiftly withdrawn & replaced with a version less open to mis-interpretation, with the offending thumb [& indeed the whole of his right arm] removed. Apart from being a very fine album indeed, the first overseen by Bob Ezrin, this copy is in fantastic condition with just some light general wear on the sleeve, with the lyric insert & ‘Rock Age’ company advertising paper inner. The labels both have a few spindle marks as you would expect, whilst the vinyl remains very clean with only a couple of light cosmetic scuffs. A really nice example, you don’t see these often P-8094W
