SMASHING PUMPKINS Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness

Spectacular and Official 1995 US RIAA Certified EIGHT TIMES PLATINUM 3-D sales award. Measuring 28" x 22", this beautifully framed, glazed and custom-etched award features the album cover image both in full and miniature along with a Platinum CD, all surrounded by eight Mellon Collie picture CDs, denoting each Platinum sales threshold achieved. With the album icons lovingly etched into the perspex and a custom, authentic RIAA hologram dedication plaque, this award both celebrates and officially recognizes a band at the absolute pinnacle of both their creative and commercial success!

Saxophone Colossus SONNY ROLLINS Saxophone Colossus

Very rare 1958 first UK issue 5-track mono LP on Esquire, starring Tommy Flanagan on Piano, Doug Watkins on Bass & Max Roach on Drums – this is the album that made the jazz public sit up and appreciate the colossal force of Rollins' sax work! A treat to find in such beautiful condition, the laminated flipback picture sleeve is a lovely design variant to its US counterpart and shows barely any signs of its age. Better still, the vinyl simply looks likeit's never seen a turntable. Mint and highly recommended.
