Friday’s Top Three including BIG WALTER HORTON, ZIOR and BOB DYLAN…

Southern Comfort

BIG WALTER HORTON Southern Comfort

Very rare 1969 UK purple London label 11-track stereo LP. Mighty Baby fans take note! The legend goes that Walter Shakey Horton visited the UK in 1968 for a festival, inadvertently teaming up with guitarist Martin Stone (Savoy Brown and Mighty Baby). bassist Jerome Arnold (the Butterfield Blues Band) and drummer Jessie C. Lewis (Otis Rush), with rented session time to produce this remarkable album. Martin was heavily under the influence of Hendrix at the time, and apparently ol' 'Shakey' was heavily under the influence of booze, passing out and leaving the rest of the group to end on an epic 12-minute psychedelic raga! The front laminated sleeve is near mint and the vinyl EX++ SHK8405

ZIOR Zior

German Global label 12-track stereo vinyl LP issue of the 1971 progressive hard rock album by the English band who sprang to existence right on the cusp of the progressive-folk and pysch-blues expanding movements as they ushered in proto-metal and beyond. Front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with the 'Love Cannot Exist In Hell…' quotation on the front, showing a little laminate lift and minor wear to the opening edge but otherwise in great shape, this copy is graded VG+ as there are some light surface marks to the vinyl indicating play and a small annotation of the previous owner's name handwritten on the B side label, however the labels are very clean with no spindle marking and the vinyl retains a lush, bright lustre – A nice copy of this early rock rarity, recommended much for fans of early Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer and Grand Funk Railroad to name just a few!

BOB DYLAN Highway 61 Revisited

1973 UK stereo pressing of the 1965 LP with "smooth" finish orange CBS labels, featuring classics 'Like A Rolling Stone' and the title track. Non-laminated non-flipack picture sleeve with liner notes on the reverseand period-correct original 'The Inner Sleeve' CBS advert inner. The matrix endings are A2/B2 and the vinyl looks barely, if at all, played with no spindle wear evident — a truly fabulous MINT condition example! SBGP62572
