The very definition of progressive female folk-psych. Recommended!
EX/M- 35
TWELFTH NIGHT, Live at the Target (UK/81 private) small repair on cover.
How come nobody noticed this before? An all-instrumental strongly progressive record with musicians switching easily from hard-rock into symphonic rock into classical rock into power rock. Maybe the only Britsh band that sound Italian!

VANEXIA, same (I/81 Disco In)
Breakneck speed-rock, fabulously played.
VG+/M- 12
Side two has hardly exciting versions of classical hits, but side one is a pure delight with tracks by Buffy Sainte-Marie, Country Joe and The Fish (Crystal blues) and Ian & Sylvia, as well as a "steam engine" sound effect and a moog demonstration of Rimsky-Korsakoffs Flight of the bumble bee which must be heard to be believed.
EX/M- 12
"AMERICANA VOL.II" [V/A] (UK/72 Turnabout hexagon)
Orchestral pieces by Bernstein, Morton Gould, Robertson and 2 more. Spectacular writing all the way! Great cover art too!
M- 15
"BBC CLASSIC TRACKS # 90-27" [V/A] (USA/90 Westwood One, 4 cue sheets)
Superb radio LP with otherwise unavailable live cuts by Elton John, BEATLES (an excellent Love me do), CREAM (great version of Tales from brave Ulysses), YARDBIRDS (wild version of I'm a man) and FIXX. Strongly recommended.
M- 28
"COMPUTER MUSIC [V/A] (USA/70 Nonesuch brown, ois)
INCREDIBLE sounds by J.K.Randall, Barry Vercoe and Charles Dodge. Mediocre pressing..
VG+/EX 25
Looks worse, but plays almost ever M-. Brilliant sampler with "conversations" and music by among others Otis Spann, J.B.Lenoir, Roosevelt Sykes, John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins and 16 other blues giants. Recommended!!
VG+/EX 85
"DANK U!" [V/A] (NL/70 Radio Veronica)
Great sampler issued to commemorate 10 years of the pirate radio station Veronica (which means they began in 1960!). The profit of this record was given away to an organization for healing kidney diseases. Some of the bands: SANDY COAST (Capital punishment), GOLDEN EARRINGS (That day), SHOES, CATS, MOTIONS, BRAINBOX, SHOCKING BLUE, UNIT GLORIA, TEE-SET and similar crews.
EX 15
"ELECTRONIC MUSIC" [V/A] (UK/66 Turnabout hexagon, ois) mostly M-.
Beautiful compilation with compositions by Mimaroglu, Walter Carlos (no moog dross!), Tzvi Avni, and Lewin-Richter. The REAL thing. Great cover too!
EX 28
"FOLK HERITAGE" [V/A] (UK/73 Wind Mill) mostly M-.
Retail price 57p says the cover. This is a recommended folk sampler, most of all for the eerie track by FOLKAL POINT, but definitely also for the two tracks by BLUE WATER FOLK and the track by Mike Raven & Joan Mills.
EX 35
"HARD CASH" [V/A] (UK/90 Topic, insert) ptt
14 tracks. "specially recorded songs" for a BBC television series. 2 fabulous cuts by Richard Thompson and otherwise an impressive roster too: Dave Kelly, Jo Ann Kelly, June Tabor, Martin Carthy. Gregson & Collister, The Watersons, Ron Kavana etc... As far as I know only available on this LP!
EX/M- 16
"MY SWEET LORD" [V/A] (D/70 Europa)
Budget sampler indeed, but has 2 tracks by CORPORAL GANDER'S and 4 by ELECTRIC FOOD (Lucifer's Friend), as well as a track by SPICY BRAMBLES which also is LUCIFER'S FRIEND.
EX 15
"ROCK BUSTER" [V/A] (NL/70 CBS orange, 2LP, FOC)
Incredible CBS sampler with BYRDS, SOFT MACHINE, Dylan, Miles Davis, SPIRIT, BLACK WIDOW etcetera. But the best thing is an OTHERWISE UNISSUED TRACK BY TREES!! That track plays M-, haven't checked the others but they look worse.
VG+ 12
"SAFRÁN" [V/A] (CS/89 Supraphon grey)
Folk-blues and folk sampler with 2 tracks by Vladimir Merta standing out, but the female vocals of Dása Vonková steal the show. A track by Jaroslav Hutka, too. As far as I decipher the liner notes, this was recorded in 1976.
EX 10
"SUCK IT AND SEE" [V/A] (UK/73 Vertigo ufo, 2LP, FOC)
Excellent sampler!! This has a cut from the unissued JADE WARRIOR album Eclipse.
EX/M- 19
"SUPER DUPER BLUES", [V/A] (UK/69 Blue Horizon)
All the greats of the genuine blues on one record!
EX 24
"THE SOIL AND THE SEA", [V/A] (USA/65 Mainstream brown)
Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Lee Hays and Peter Hawes.....
EX 15
"TWRW TANLLYD", [V/A] (UK/80 Sain)
A Welsh wild rock sampler with 9 bands including otherwise unavalable tracks by Meic Stevens and Edward H.Dafis. Rare!
VG+/M- 20
Backcover has moisture damage, front finr, disc nearly perfect. A host of non-LP tracks by PEANUT BC, ASHES and CHAMBER BROTHERS. Cover by Rick Griffin.
EX/M- 45

VILDHONUNG, Groupa (S/85 Amigo, insert) M- 15
VITESSE, Out in the country (NL/78 EMI)

EX/M- 18
VIZÖNTÖ, Electric shepherd (H/87 Hungaroton)
Top-notch progressive folk with incredible musicianship and an avalanche of unexpected twists. Highly recommended!!

IL VOLO, Essere o non essere (I/75 Numero Uno, FOC) EX/M- 89
KLAAS DE VRIES/PETER-JAN WAGEMANS, Follia/Bewegingen/Muziek II (NL/80 Donemus)
Another indispensable release on this excellent label of avant-garde Dutch music. These are stunning pieces of orchestral music combined with electronics. Deep and brilliantly vibrating.
M- 15
V.S.P.PROJEKT, same (SU/89 Melodya/SF Riga)
Virtuoso prog from Estonia, incredibly played, dark and doomy all the way.
