Expanded Description >>

From the Label:

Limited one-time pressing! Double LP and bonus 7” single!

O.V Wright is one of the greatest soul singers of all time, and here we have a two record and one single set that covers all his best material!

Producer of these session’s Willie Mitchell (who also produced Al Green and Ann Peebles) stated that O.V. was the best soul singer he ever heard. Otis Redding felt threatened by O.V’s talent. O.V could keep an audience hypnotized without moving a muscle and just using his pure pitch perfect voice. He is a singer of mythic proportions and we believe this LP proves it.

The first record of this set is a straight repro of O.V’s best and hardest to find release – Nickel And A Nail And Ace Of Spades. We spared no expense to get the best sound possible.

The second LP is a “best of” O.V titled “Everybody Knows The Best Of O.V Wright”. It collects songs released on O.V’s singles recorded between 1964 and 1972. Some real hard to find songs as well as some well known hits…

The record also comes with a bonus 7″ by The Sunset Travelers, a Gospel band featuring O.V before he went secular and the great Johnnie Frierson (Wendy Rene’s brother, writer of “After Laughter Come Tears” and artist behind the all time great LP “Have You Been Good To Yourself”). The A side, “Aint’ That Good News”, is the Gospel prototype for O.V’s secular “Everybody Knows”. The B side, “Another Day Lost”, is a Gospel tune that was later turned into a soul hit by soul legend Reuben Bell.

If you like soul music, there is no way you can do without this record, and the price is right for a double LP with a bonus 7″.

Susumu Yokota / Sakura / Test Pressing

Test pressing of the original limited edition release from Leaf. Minor cover wear and a bit of staining as is common on this kind of textured paper. Records in amazing shape. Both rice-paper "promo only" sleeves intact. Amazing copy of the late genius' electronic masterwork. $270

The Yardbirds / Over, Under, Sideways, Down / Original Canadian Mono

Original 1966 Canadian mono pressing. Vinyl plays loud and great with occasional click that is buried by the music. Hole-punched cover was in disgusting shrink that I removed so record could be photo'd. Cover is therefore in great shape but for a small split bottom right. Rainbow Capitol labels on this 6000 series release. You'll not find a better copy. Incredible. $200

Gretchen Parlato / Flor / EU Original

An oddity for sure. It's EU, it's on pink-translucent-marbled vinyl. All this is on Discogs. However, this copy is numbered 0100 whereas Discogs does not mention a numbered copy and their EU is NOT numbered. Excellent shape all around. $60

The Rapture / In The Grace Of Your Love / US Original

American original on double white vinyl. Both records in stellar shape. Cover, both inner sleeves, and foldout poster all top notch. The fold-out poster is signed by Vito, Gabrielle, AND Luke with different colored Sharpies. This album is a guilty pleasure of mine. I love it to bits. One can't help but dance when it's on, despite that every song is about either divorce or death. $80

The Beatles / Abbey Road / UK, Early 80s

UK reissue from the early 80s. Record is in phenomenal shape. Cover is in nice shape but both top and bottom seams have come unglued (they are not torn or ripped). Easy fix if you care about that kind of thing. Fantastic copy. $50

The Exploding Hearts / Guitar Romantic / 2021

2021 reissue in perfect shape. Cover still in shrink. Insert and record minty. I can't tell you how many people I know that LOVE this record. Allmusic's 5 star review compares it to Buzzcocks, New York Dolls, and The Only Ones. Wikipedia agrees and adds The Clash and Nick Lowe. More people would probably know if had most of the band not perished in a crash months after its release. $70

The Yardbirds / Heart Full Of Soul / Original Canadian Mono

Original Canadian Mono. A few marks but plays great with a bit of intermittent crackle. Cover has staining but is intact. Unquestionably the best copy I've ever seen. A somewhat notorious pressing not just because the tracks, cover, and title are different than the US pressing (called For Your Love), but because Tracks A1 and A2 are NOT the single versions. The R.G. Jones Studios demos from early 1964 were used by mistake. $180

Angel Bat Dawid / The Oracle / Original and Reissues

Nucleus / Self-titled / Original

Exact pressing isn't on Discogs. This is a US piece of wax in a Canadian sleeve, so technically a first Canadian as that's where it was sold even though it was pressed in the US. A few inaudible marks and undoubtably the nicest copy I've ever seen as this record is always beat to hell. $50
