David J (Love and Rockets) / Songs from Another Season
Beggars Banquet Records BEGA-112 (1996)(US) Sealed Record on U.S. vinyl. Recruiting old Jazz Butcher/early solo assistants Alex Green and
Max Eider, among others (including Janis Zakis, a mate from his pre-Bauhaus days, for a guest spot on accordion), David J delivered a set of
reflective, softly passionate songs touching on everything from his newfound success to the ups and downs of love.

Jackie Brown / A Quentin Tarentino Film (Soundtrack) (Sold Out)
Atlantic Records 85499 (1996)(US) Original issue Sealed Record. "Jackie Brown", Tarantino's long-awaited third feature, finds him exploring
new territory, creating an homage to blaxploitation flicks as well as a surprisingly subtle character study and love story, and its soundtrack
appropriately finds him in new territory as well. The Record and Cover are in perfect (Mint) condition...$50.00 (SOLD 10/14)
Wanda Jackson / Rockin'With Wanda
Capitol Records CARS-1007 (1976)(UK) Import issue Record on U.K. vinyl. Absolutely the best collection of Wanda Jackson's rockabilly
recordings, including her key 1956-1960 singles — "Fujiyama Mama," "Mean Mean Man," "Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad," and others plus
four Bonus tracks included. "Rockin' With Wanda" is one of the best female rock & roll albums of the 1950s.
The Record (with purple label) and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00
James / Stutter (Promo)
WB/Sire Records 25437 (1986)(US) Promotional issue Record. More of a manic fever rant than an album, "Stutter" is so grotesque and spasmodic
that it rams you into a corner until you can do nothing but choke down its home-brewed indie-guitar arsenic. This is shoddy, shameless chaos.
Nothing more than a terribly produced mess of tragic rock-star baiting and deliberate discordance. An amazing debut.
The Record and Cover (with promo stamp on front) are in great (Mint-) condition...$15.00
James (with Eno) / Wah Wah (Sealed)
Mercury Records 522827 (1994)(US) Sealed Double Record on U.S. vinyl. As Brian Eno's liner notes explain, when he and James worked together
first in rehearsals and then in full recording sessions on their last album "Laid", a conscious decision was made to work on a variety of
improvisations just to see what would happen. "Wah Wah" is the result, one of the more uncommercial albums any band of its stature and its
accompanying major label has had a hand in releasing. The Records and Cover are in perfect (Mint) condition...$50.00
Etta James / Her Greatest Sides (Volume 1) (Autographed)

Jefferson Airplane / Thirty Seconds Over Winterland

Billy Joel / Cold Spring Harbor
Family Productions Records FPS-2700 (1987)(US) First issue Record on U.S. Vinyl. A few short months after abandoning the heavy organ-and-drums
