Great thread leftfield.

I've been collecting since 1984 & have found many wondrous things. I thought I'd share a few with you.


ANGEL - ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN LP
[Japanese Gatefold/OBI/2xPosters. Lovely item]

BALANCE - BALANCE LP
[Japanese Vinyl. Mmmm!]

BALANCE - RIDE THE WAVE / SHE'S ALONE TONIGHT 7"
[RARE Japan only 1983, Not sure about the bands stage gear on the sleeve, Tee Hee!]

BLACKJACK - BLACKJACK LP
[Still Sealed Playing Card Case Sleeve, Nice!]

ADAM BOMB - FATAL ATTRACTION LP
[Japanese Pressing, Different Sleeve & slighty different tracks / running order. The US geffen release is the definative version though]

GLEN BURTNICK - TALKING IN CODE CD
[Japanese CD A&M, MEGA RARE! £24 (Thanks SHADES Records) seemed like a lot of dough when I bought it but I've never seen another copy since apart from a reissue]

EVIL - EVIL'S MESSAGE LP
[Bonkers yet brilliant Danish Speed Metal]

GREAT WHITE - OUT OF THE NIGHT EP
[Classic Debut Mini LP]

GUNS 'N' ROSES - LIVE ?!*@ LIKE A SUICIDE LP
[Legendary 'Live' Mini LP, Both me & the missus have a copy each, £7.49ea, WOW!]

GUNS 'N' ROSES - EP
[Excellent Rare Live & Studio EP. On Japanese vinyl & CD]

HANOVER FIST - HANOVER FIST LP
[SUPER RARE (Thanks SHADES Records) A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Canandian melodic hard rock, like a heavier Kick Axe. ROCK CANDY PLEASE REISSUE THIS!]

I-TEN - TAKING A COLD LOOK LP
[Bought Still Sealed back in 1989 for £30. Mega Rare then maybe less so now]

ICON - AN EVEN MORE PERFECT UNION CD
[Still pretty rare]

INNER SANCTUM - 12:00am LP
[1986, Features on Drums – Mike Portnoy, not great but mega rare, £130 on discogs, cost me £2.00]

THE INNOCENT - LIVIN' IN THE STREET LP
[Excellent hard to find super slick AOR featuring Ex-Donnie Iris & The Cruisers & Breathless members & weirdly Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails on keyboards. ESSENTIAL!]

LITTLE RIVER BAND - NO REIGNS CD
[MEGA RARE! £23 seemed like a lot of dough when I bought it but I've never seen another copy since. A really good West-Coast-Ish sound on this release]

MEGADETH - PEACE SELLS...BUT WHO'S BUYING? LP
[MY RAREST ITEM, White Label Test Pressing Music For Nations MFN64 original Randy Burns Mix. Thanks again SHADES Records]

MERCYFUL FATE - EP / aka NUNS HAVE NO FUN
[1982 First Pressing. Another bargin £4]

MOTLEY CRUE - TOO FAST FOR LOVE LP
[Leathür Records 2nd pressing. Actually got two copies of this, cost me £3.50 & £1.99 in 1986 &1989, on ebay now for between £276.68-£411.57]

PANTERA - PROJECTS IN THE JUNGLE LP
[Quite hard to come by an original copy, bootleged to death. Actually very good, suprisingly melodic & nothing like their later output]

PANTERA - I AM THE NIGHT LP
[Quite hard to come by an original copy, bootleged to death. Actually very good, suprisingly melodic & nothing like their later output. Somebody re-release these early Pantera albums please.]

PILEDRIVER - METAL INQUISITION LP
[Hilarious album from 1985, with songs like Sex With Satan, what's not to like. Another album bootleged to death, so hard to find original copies]

PINK FLOYD - DARK SIDE OF THE MOON LP
[MFSL Half Speed Master Fab sounding original copy]

Q5 - STEEL THE LIGHT LP
[Original Albatross pressing with different artwork, sort of terrible but I like it, the MFN sleeve wasn't great either. Superb album though]

SAVATAGE - SIRENS LP
[Excellent debut very hard to find without paying top dollar, cost me £2.00]

SHARKS - ALTAR EGO LP
[AKA SHARK ISLAND. Thanks Carl. Again hard to find without paying through the nose. Another one I have never seen anywhere apart from Discogs.]

STARZ - VIOLATION LP
[Japanese Vinyl, one of my most treasured LPs]

STARZ - LIVE AT THE MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM LP
[MEGA RARE radio concert, my original copy cost me £40 & worth every penny. SUPERB!]

STEELER - Cold Day In Hell / Take Her Down 7"
[Ravage Records 1982 Very rare pre-Yngwie 45rpm]

SUGARCREEK - LIVE AT THE ROXY LP
[Never seen another copy of this in my travels, apart from ebay]

SUGARCREEK - FORTUNE LP
[Still sealed original Beaver Records copy bought fom Shades Records for £2.99 in 1987]

TNT - KNIGHTS OF THE NEW THUNDER LP
[Signed copy bought in Shades Records in 1985]

TOUCH - TOUCH LP
[All-Time Favourite album on ATCO / WARNER / PIONEER Japanese pressing. First time I played this on my brothers decent Hi-FI I could hear the guys intake of breath on the accepella parts on Black Star & could also hear Doug Howards fingers sliding on the bass strings. STUNNING! By far my most treasured slab of vinyl]

TRILLION - TRILLION LP
[Promo Blue Vinyl. Maybe not super rare, It's already been mentioned on this thread. A lovely item all the same]

WILDHEARTS - MONDO AKIMBO A-GO GO CD
[Hard to find debut, four fantastic songs imagine Cheap Trick meets Metallica. Another bargin £1.99]

WHITE SISTER - FASHION BY PASSION LP
[German pressing with completely different artwork, Way better than the dreadful packaging used on the UK pressing]

ZAPPACOSTA - A TO Z LP
[Nice Promo Gatefold w/12" 7" & promo material. Still not fully available on CD :-( ]

CRYSTAL HEART - SOUNDTRACK LP
[Features two unavailable elsewhere Dennis Churchil numbers both pretty good. In all my years of shop & record fair trawling I have never come across this. Powercuts, Manchester 49pence, thank you very much]
