Bjorn--Benny-Shes-My-Kind-Of-G-342069BJORN & BENNY She's My Kind Of Girl

Very rare 1970 debut 7" vinyl from Benny and Bjorn only ever released commercially in Sweden [& 2 years later in Japan]. This Swedish single could be construed as the 'first' Abba song as the girls are actually in the choir! Rarely found, this is complete with it's wrapround picture sleeve featuring Benny minus beard, and with Swedish text which translates it to be taken 'from the movie Inga' which was – unbeknown to them – a soft porn movie!!The vinyl has a few light hairline marks and there is a small amount of writing on the side 1 label, howver the Polar label four prong centre remains intact and the sleeve is beautiful near mint condition!

Paul-Gonsalves-Boom-Jackie-Boom-575915PAUL GONSALVES QUARTET Boom-Jackie-Boom-Chick

Rare and super limited 2006 Japanese 8-track remastered CD, the first and only edition of this incredible 1964 recording on compact disc. Just 500 copies of the LP were originally released; this highquality Japanese CD issue reproduces the laminated flipback sleeve artwork, label design and album notes beautifully, complete with Japanese translated booklet and obi. To give some background, Gonsalves arrived in London during the bad winterof 1962-63 to escape the legal wranglings of the US Musicians Union. He recorded this gem of a set under the declaration that it took place in Switzerland to avoid further trouble. Teamed with the Brit-jazz musicians Pat Smythe (piano), Kenny Napper (bass), and Ronnie Stevenson (drums), all firm admirers of Gonsalves incredible warmth and depth of playing, Boom-Jackie-Boom-Chick turned out to be a killer set of hard-bop numbers and one of the greatest jazz recordings of the sixties.
