* Separate little list that will put up amazing condition but cheap and semi-rare slides and spare copies of records that do NOT feature on our Rare Records Catalogue.

* This little list will be updated every 10 days or so with a handful of new additions of super clean killer records that are cheap or offered below market value, our “collateral damage” offerings so to speak that drifted into our orbit.

* As opposed to our main Rare Record Catalogue – we do not sent out an update mailing list for this little venture. So better check in ever so often to not miss out on any dead cheap and EX & NM killer sonics.

* Only EX/ NM condition records will be offered so…cheap and clean fun for days.

UPDATED March 1st, 2017.
1. BENTWIND: “Sussex” (Delval – DV-007) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Long gone and deleted Delval issue of Canadian heavy psych rarity from 1968. This one always fries my cranium to a close meltdown with Riverside blasting at full volume through my speakers and igniting a riot in the neighborhood. Killer but getting so damned hard to pull. Price: 75 Euro
2. BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY: “S/T” (Mainstream – S/6099) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Excellent ~ Near Mint - has a faint trace of ringwear on upper side, neglectable). Original US first pressing, stereo copy. Price: 40 Euro
3. BROWN, MARION: "Solo Saxophone" (Sweet Earth Records - SER-1001) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Top condition US original pressing - private press issue that saw the light of day in 1977 and sees Marion Brown blowing his lungs out at the absolute peak of his powers. Rarely surfaces but largely overlooked masterpiece that is in desperate need of reappraisal. Price: 35 Euro
4. CHARLATANS: “The Ones Who Started It All” (Shark – Shark001) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint). Amazing LP by Frisco’s finest. Unreleased recordings by the Charlatans dating back to 1966 ~ 1968. Codeine and the rest, killer no filler. Has been a while since I came across a copy of this one. In need of a massive re-appreciation. Price: 30 Euro
5. CHRISTIAN, CHARLIE: The Charlie Christian Memorial Album" (CBS SONY - 56AP-674~6) (3 LP Record Set: Near Mint ~ Mint/ Box Set: Near Mint/ Booklet: Mint/ OBI: Mint). Rare 1977 Japan ONLY 3 LP Box set issue by legendary guitar player. The whole affair was recorded between 1931 and 1941. Amazing recordings on which Charlie Christian gets flanked by heavyweights such as Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, Count Basie and other luminaries. Top condition 3 LP box set that rarely surfaces all complete with booklet and OBI. Impossible to upgrade upon and this baby comes at a rock bottom, dead cheap price. Now this is some serious aural magick you can wrap your ears around and live will never be the same again. Killer. Price: 50 Euro
6. CHERRY, DON & GATO BARBIERI: “Togetherness” (Cicala – BL-7068J) (Record: VG++ has visible so-called sunburn but surprisingly plays EX~NM/ Jacket: Excellent, has some mildew spots visible and lower middle seam split). Rare 1974 first original pressing of very scarce Don Cherry title. This LP features tenor-saxophonist Gato Barbieri (at the beginning of his career) and trumpeter Don Cherry teaming up with a French rhythm section for the trumpeter's five-part "Togetherness." While Cherry plays pretty free, he sounds conservative next to the often-violent wails of Barbieri. Great free flowing and free blowing slide, fire music in motion and killing it. Comes dead cheap…. Price: 35 Euro.
7. COLEMAN, ORNETTE: "Chappaqua Suite" (CBS SONY - SOPW-13~14) (2 LP Record Set: Near Mint ~ Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint- has only a few mildew spots visible inside of the gatefold against the white background due to age/ Insert: Mint/ Capsule Obi: Excellent ~ Near Mint). Rare Japanese pressing all complete with the always-missing capsule obi. One of Ornette Coleman's finest outings, pressed on high quality Japanese vintage virgin vinyl for your audiophile pleasures. Obi is quite a tough one to find. Amazing copy for dead cheap. Price: 30 Euro
8. COLTRANE, JOHN: "OM" (Impulse Records - AS-9140) (Record: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent ~ Near Mint/ ). Nice US 1967 first original pressing in outstanding condition. Very first press issue with "Bell Sound" stamped in the dead wax and first issue matrix numbers ending in A/B also stamped in dead wax. I think one can hardly improve upon this one, beautiful conditio first issue pressing of legendary fire session that dawrfs anything that came therefater. Killer. Price: 60 Euro
9. COLTRANE, ALICE: “A Monastic Trio” (Impulse Records – A-9156) (Records: Near Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Company Inner Sleeve: Near Mint). Top condition US original pressing. Hard to improve upon this one or you will have to score a sealed one. If that is your thing, check the main list for a sealed copy to clenche your thirst. Otherwise, this is the best next thing. Top condition copy. Price: 60 Euro
10. CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG: “Ohio” (Private – 505) (Record: Excellent/ Paste On Jacket: Near Mint, still in shrink).

Track listing consists of: Ohio – Listen Once Again To My Bluebird – Sea Of Madness – Down By The River – Teach Your Children – Guinevere – Birds – 4 + 20 – You Don’t Have To Cry – Suite Judy Blue Eyes. This must be an early 1970s issue. Price: 30 Euro
11. DANNY BEN ISRAEL: “Bullshit 3 1/4” (World In Sound – RFR-016) (Record: Mint/ Heavy Textured Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Mint). Long out of print and deleted issue that came out in 2002 of rare Israeli psych record. Price: 30 Euro

13. DOLPHY, ERIC: “Last Date” (Mercury/ Nippon Phonogram – SMX-7119) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Beautiful and amazing sounding Japanese original pressing of one of the greatest jazz recordings of all time. Price: 20 Euro
14. DYLAN, BOB: “The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 ~ deluxe LP Edition ~ No Direction Home: The Soundtrack – A Martin Scorsese Picture” (Columbia Records – C2L 93937-1) (4 LP Record Set: Near Mint/ 2 x Gatefold LP Jackets: Mint/ Booklet: Mint/ Postcard: Mint). Long deleted and gone issue that saw the light of day way back in 2006. Top condition heavy duty box set. Essential to any self respecting Dylan aficionado. Price: 125 Euro
15. GAINSBOURG, SERGE & JANE BIRKIN: “S/T” (Philips Japan – SFL-7384) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). Japan only issue from 1969 that comes housed in Japan only designed sleeve art. This collection of vintage 1960s orchestral pop from the master of surreal Gallic eroticism includes kitsch masterpieces like "69 Annee Erotique" and Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg's chart-topping "Je T'Aime (Moi Non Plus)," in a procession of jazzy instrumentals accompanied by Gainsbourg's throaty, Gitanes-coated vocals and the pertly sexy interpolations of his stunning wife. A classic and rarely seen Japan only 1st original press in altered jacket art. I had a copy before and it went for 275 euro, now I even have a better - top condition copy - which I will let go for cheap....and this one is as clean as can be, next to impossible to upgrade upon and a damned rare record. Price: 100 Euro
16. GATO BARBIERI: “El Pampero – Recorded Live – Montreux Jazz Festival” ‘Flying Dutchman/ King Records – SR-3153) (Record: Near Mint ~ Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Mint/ Insert: Mint). Rare Japan original first press issue from 1972 all complete with rare OBI and insert. This record chronicles a flavorful and unforgettable night during a live show recorded in Montreux, Switzerland. Gato Barbieri leads his fantastic group of musical friends with hurricane-like flair on his tenor sax. At times surreal and mind-boggling, Barbieri shows just how far one can let the music go to break the borders of jazz, sending his music into fresh and uncharted territory. Barbieri’s chops and melodic sweeps are daring and bold, while the back crew brings vitality and utter life to the music, from the record's beginning to its very end. Within the first tune, "El Pampero," Barbieri plays a home tone riff over and over, changing only the keys of the song, with improvisation in between that gets the audience into dancing. Lonnie Liston Smith plays with great sweeping ease on the piano, while percussionists Pretty Purdie, Na-Na, and Sonny Morgan send their rhythms into soaring heights. A wondrous sense of dynamics is displayed here and throughout the record. The call and response between Na-Na and Morgan is a featured key ingredient, keeping the mood of the percussion section fluid and tight. Yes, the listeners were mesmerized, and one can feel lifted in spirit again with each playing of this recording. Perhaps the focus and direction of the music, which latched on greatly to the home key and initial melody, gives the music a more solid foundation. This was certainly a special night in Switzerland, in which Barbieri proudly shared his music, credited in a natural more than economic fashion, breathing spirit into the audience rather than taking money. For this performance was priceless, a can't-miss that left audience members bedazzled, talking among themselves years later, saying, "Do you remember when?...I was there!" With passion and faith in music, this group of musicians thrived here in this recorded moment, to demonstrate art, haunting art, vivid imagination, and victory in art.” (All Music Guide) Top condition. Price: 40 Euro
17. GATO BARBIERI: “Chapter One: Latin America” (Impulse Records – IMP-88139) (Record: Near Mint/ gatefold Jacket: Near Mint/ Obi: Mint/ Insert: Mint). Japan first original press issue all complete with obi. “Chapter One: Latin America was a huge step forward musically for the Argentinean-born saxophonist, even as it looked to the music of his heritage. This turned out to be the first of four chapters in his series on Latin America, and for it he teamed not with established jazz musicians, but instead folk and traditional musicians from his native country, and recorded four of the album's five cuts in Buenos Aires -- the final track, a multi-tracked solo piece, was recorded in Rio de Janeiro. The music found here doesn't walk a line between the two worlds, but freely indulges them. The enormous host of musicians on the date played everything from wooden flutes to electric and acoustic guitars, bomba drums and quenas, and Indian harps and charangos, creating a passionate and deeply emotive sound that echoed across not only miles but also centuries. At the helm was Barbieri, playing in his rawest and most melodic style to date, offering these melodies, harmonies, and rhythms as a singular moment in the history of jazz. While the entire album flows seamlessly from beginning to end, the A-side, comprised of Barbieri’s own "Encuentros" and J. Asuncion Flores and M. Ortiz Guerrero’s classic "India," is the clear standout. That said, the four-part suite that commences side two -- "La China Leoncia Arreo la Correntinada Trajo Entre la Muchachada la Flor de la Juventud" -- is a work of such staggering drama and raw beauty that it is perhaps the single highest achievement in Barbieri’s recorded catalog as an artist. Simply put, this album, like its remaining chapters, makes up one of the great all but forgotten masterpieces in 1970s jazz.” (All Music Guide). Top condition, impossible to upgrade upon. Price: 40 Euro
18. The GREAT KAI & J.J.: “S/T” (Impulse Records – IMP-88116) (Record: Near Mint ~ Mint/ Gatefold Jacket: Excellent/ Obi: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint). This lively Impulse! set was the first recorded reunion of trombonists J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding.  With pianist Bill Evans, either Paul Chambers or Tommy Williams on bass, and Roy Haynes or Art Taylor on drums, the two trombonists are in melodic and witty form on such tunes as "This Could Be the Start of Something Big," "Blue Monk," "Side by Side," and "Theme from Picnic." Recommended. Price: 20 Euro
19. GRIFFIN, JOHNNY: “Introducing Johnny Griffin” (Blue Note/ EMI Music Japan – BLP-1533) (Record: Near Mint/ Jacket: Near Mint/ Company Inner Sleeve: Near Mint/ Insert: Near Mint/ Capsule Obi: Near Mint). “Johnny Griffin played fast—very fast. The evidence is here in Griffin's very first album, Introducing Johnny Griffin. It's a 1956 date with a quartet that includes Wynston Kelly on piano, Curly Russell on bass and Max Roach on drums. For 70 years, Griffin was a jazz giant, and this album, his first as a leader, is among his very best. And fastest. Griffin could play the hell out of a ballad. His sound is soulful and full-bodied. Two numbers in particular—"These Foolish Things" and "Lover Man" show off Griffin's beautiful tone. But it's speed you're looking for, and you've come to the right place. The very first number, a Griffin original called "Mil Dew," is blazingly fast. So is "Cherokee," the album's closer, but you expect that on "Cherokee." You don't expect it on Jerome Kern's "The Way You Look Tonight," which may be the fastest take of that song ever recorded. And you don't expect a blazing solo on Cole Porter's "It's Alright With Me," but Griffin delivers. He is fast, absolutely, but also crystal clear, and clever. He is a bebopper (or hard bopper?) of the first order. Johnny Griffin would go on to create many great albums. Arguably his best—"A Blowin' Session" with fellow tenors John Coltrane and Hank Mobley—came just one year later. But it's clear from the very beginning, from this album, that Johnny Griffin was destined for a legendary career. It starts here.” (All About Jazz) Immediately Out Of Print in the flash of an eyelid…. Japan’s uber-quality super limited deluxe high quality reissue of some of jazz finest titles. All is done with an extreme eye for details – EXACTLY sleeve reproduction up and down to the original coating, texture, label’s first address, choice of carton and paper used for printing – simulating the perfect real-time artifact etc…exact same labels and micro groove deep groove pressing, 200-gram vinyl. The jackets are all imprinted in Japan – hence the almost neurotic perfection of the whole job that makes the jackets identical in thickness and quality of the materials used as to the fist press originals & also they used the same lettering as the originals, all is just state of the art. The vinyl was pressed in the US using the original pressing machine that was used for the originals in order to create the exact same quality of vinyl and sound!!!! Flat edged press and cut from the original master tapes as well. And to close it all of, reproduction of the original inner sleeves and liner notes as well. This borders on the insane as far as near perfection is concerned. Glorious MONO to boot, sold out on the spot. Price: 55 Euro
